Youth'h Companion. THE CAMPAIGN OF 1874. Synopsis of Senator Morton's Speech at Terra Haute, Ind., July 31, 1874. TIIE PARTIES CONTRASTED. Resolutions against corruption are cheap clap trap. All parties profess to be opposed to corruption, but it is usually the corruptions of their op ponents. The true test of a party is its self-examination and purification, •and tried by this test the Republican party is distinguished above every other in the history of the country. Nobody believes the Democratic party to be particularly sensitive about corruption. When in power it was noted for the skill and industry with wh!ch it covered up the frauds of its own members ; but the Repub lican party, on the aontr&ry, has un covered all delinquencies and rascal* ities in its own ranks, and has promptly punished every official de tected in wrong. The Democratic party sought to protect itself against public opinion by concealing the de linquencies of its members ; the Re publican party has proceeded upon the theory that self-examination and the exposure and punishment of its rogues was the best guarantee for its continuance iu power. There are good and bad men in ail parties, as there are iu ail human organizations, and the bad will eventually control and corrupt all societies unless ex posed and repressed. The detection of the Credit Mobiiier, Sanborn, and District of Columbia transactions were the earnest and voluntary work of the Republican party, and while it discovered here and there a diseased member, it reveals, never theless, the healthy tone, vigor, and condition of the mass. The Repub lican party was formed upon princi ples rather than upon measures. It does not exist in particular measures, but in principles out of which meas ures are to be shaped to suit the times. It is a progressive parly, aud whenever it ceases to be such, aud becomes conservative then you may begin to talk about its mission be ing fulfilled. For years to come the contest will be between the Republi can and Democratic parlies, and be tween tbe two there is no room for a third party, and every one that is lormed will be feeble and ephemeral. These parties represent different ideas, tendencies, and modes of thought, which are in irrepressible conffict. The Democratic party is out of power and is struggling to re gain it. It seizes upon every popu lar discontent, and seeks to avail itself of every local passion or preju dice to injure the Republican party. It has no policy for administering tbe Government and makes no at tempt at consistency. It is at liberty to profess in one locality what it de nies in another. It uses any weapon of assault, knowing that there is lit tle responsibility attached to a mi nority struggling for power, as there is to those who are in possession of it. In Maine it is for free trade, in Pennsylvania for high protective tar iff, aud in Indiana for “a tariff for revenue.” In some of the States it re-asserts the resolutions of ’9B, which produced the rebellion, while in oth ers it rushes to the opposite extreme, and decla-es the power of Congress to overturn the State Governments of Louisiana aDd South Carolina. On tbe temperance question tbe Democratic position is as varied as tbe circumstances surrounding it in the different States and Territories ; with this qualification, however, there is a general leaning to the side of intemperance. It may be said, generally, to go as far in favor oi the unrestrained traffic in intoxica ting liquors as it can, not to wholly fo r feit the respect and friendship of those who are inclined to tne side of temperance. If the temperance men are for prohibition, the Democ racy are for a license law, always striking lower and making a bid for support of that class of men. What ever meaeure may be proposed in any State or Territory whereby to diminish tbe evils of intemperance, for some reason it is sure to come short of receiving Democratic sup port ; and they never fail to find some good reason for opposing it, although they may deal in glittering generalities in favor of temperance and reform to which I call attention. It was so with reference to slavery and rebellion. Professing to be op posed to the action of the rebels, it yet opposed every measure calcula ted to suppress it, and generally cast the weight of its influence in fa vor of the rebellion. THE CURRENCY. On the subject of the currency the Senator reviewed the debate in the Senate. Commencing with the Pres ident’s annual message to Congress, in which he declared his belie! that there was not more than enough cur rency in the country for the dullest season of the year, and that specie payments could not be resumed until our exports, exclusive of gold, pay tor our imports, interests abroad, and other specie obligations. He analyzed the bill finally passed by both Houses of Congress as a com promise measure, and signed by the President, cbaracterizmg it as a measure of expansion largely in ex cess ot the bill vetoed by the Presi dent. The effects of this bill in ex panding the volume of currency in circulation was distinctly recognized by all who voted for it, and those who voted against it, did so for that express reason. Notwithstanding the immense clamor against expan sion and the bitter denunciations from a large portion of the press, both Houses of Congress, by a vote approaching to unanimity, and the President by his approval of the bill, recognized the necessity for increas ing the amount of money in circula tion in order to restore confidence, and to again set the wheel of busi ness in motion. The bill extinguish- ed the threat of contraction which hung over the business of the coun try .'»ko a suspend ng swo r d, and is an explicit declaration against that policy. The common sense of the country prevaded against theory, and the good effects oi the measure are already vis hie in every part of the United States. The monster of contraction which stalked into Con greßs in December, with insolent air, were finally kicked out of it, after hav'ng had expansion crammed down its throat. Contraction, which waH but another name for coulisca » ; ou, became so odious, that in the c’oßing weeks of the session scarce any one dared to lift h : s voico in its lavor. Tlie Senator then b-ieflv examined plans proposed to bnug about the resumut oa o' speo-e payments. F’rst it s proposed to repeal the Legai-teader acts, wh cn witho. t argument, he denounced as reped a t’ou of the most wanton and disas* t'ous character, leav'ug the cur'ency in the hands of the people worthless, after v oialing toe contrrct upon which the people accepted them. Second, it was p.oposed, as was by Mr. Greeley, to resume uy resuming. This is like a tale told by an idiot, lull of sound and fury, »‘gn : fying noth : ng. What the country wants is not to he placed upon tha rock of contraction or thrust into the abyss of repudiation, hut repose, the return of good times, the restoration of con. fideuce, the revival of enterprise, progress and improvement such as we had ten years previous to the panio. If with this grand restora tion and resurrection of the country specie payments do not come by natural process, it is certain that they cannot ho lorced by the rae<, the thumbscrew, or any instruments of slow torture that may ho devised. The Republican platform declares in favor of such an increase of the cur rency as may he demanded by the business of the country. (Juireocy is the instrument of business. When there is just enough for the business oi one year it does not demand an argument to prove that there should he more next year when business and population have largely increased. Whatever tfce character of t*ie cur rency there should bo euough to do business with ; this, whether the cur rency of gold, silver or paper. It the quality he not good in that anyi reason why the quant'ty should he reduced V If the food of a family is not of the best quality is that any reason why the supply should ho made less than is necessary for the'r support? Wdl the sta r vation of the family contribute to improve the character of tLei- food ? It was Dr. Sangrado’s theory that when a man’s system was run down and his blood poor he should he subjected to stiil further rejection and hiood-letting. The country has had a surfeit of po litical SangradoV, and the theories of that school of medicine for our ills are not winning many supporters at this day. PAYMENT OF THE FIVE TWENTIES. The first resolution of the Demo cratic platform declares for the pay ment of the five-twenty bonds in greenbacks. It was contended with great force that tbe government bad the right to use the greenbacks iu existence when the five-twenty bonds were sold in their payment. Rut in 1607 Mr. Pendleton advanced a proposition that years alter the bonds bad been sold Congress had the right to make a further issue of g-eenbacks beyond tne 1400,000,000 authorized, and to make them a le gal tender in payment of tne pre-ex isting bonds. This proposition of Mr. Pendleton had the support of Mr. Hendricks and many other lead ing Democrats, aud resulted in a vio lent discussion on the whole ques tion. In 1809, soon after the inaug uration of President Grant, Congress passed an act declaratory of the law and intended >t to be a final settle ment of tbe whole question. I ex cepted it as a final settlement, and believed it must be so now received. Since that time these bonds have been bought and so>d upon the ex press declaration of the government that they should b 1 paid in coin, and the Government is stopped from now asserting the right to pay the five-twenties ; and, secondly, by pro posing to repeal the pledge given in 1609, upon tne faith of wbicn these bonds have been bought and sold for more than five years. It is sale to predict that tbe settlement of this question by tbe act of 1609 will not be reopened ; that the national bank system will not be destroyed, and that the whole amount of greenbacks in circulation will never exceed 1382,000,000, the amount now in use. The problem remaining to be solved is to redeem these greenbacks in coin, and this will be done at the earliest practicable day. But not the present. It wiil be after the ef fects of the paoic have passed away, good times have been restored, and the balance of trade has ceased to run against us. The specie payment c*-y, ought, therefore, to cease to vex the pub'ic ea*, and allow fail confi dence to return to business. Tbe moral effects of the currency bill are visible eveiywhere, and with fine prospects of bountiful harvests, strong hopes are entertained of a great revivaf in business and pros perity in tbe fall, and that the work ofbuidiicg ra’iroads, and other pub lic improvements, and the extension of manufactures aud trade, will have a vigorous and permanent renewal. While tbe additional bank currency voted to the west may not be taken very rap.dly, and in fact can Dot be until there shall have been a revival of business, it shall be taken at no distant period, and then the demand will be renewed for free banking, and the removal of tbe monopoly feature of the National Ranking law, which has ever been its blemish and has lately contributed to whatever ot unpopularity the system may have. After all it is a distinguishing fact that the common sense of the people prevails in the end over all fine-spun theories in finance as in otb er matters, and notwithstanding all that has been said about our curren cy as being deprecated and fluctua ting rag money, everybody knows it is a good currency, under which the country has prospered as it never did before, and that its further im provement will be natoral, steady, and healthy. And with these con siderations I am content to await the developments of the future on the financial question. national banks. The Democratic platform demands the repeal of the national baok sys tem, and, while the resolution does not say so in terms, it means a return to tne old system ot State banks. What tbat may be I need not remind my older bearers. The national banks afford a currency that is per fectly secured, in which everybody has entire confidence, that is of equal value in all parts of the Union, that is not easily counterfeited, and is, in all respects, the ssfeet and most satisfactory bank ourreooy this country has ever had. The propo sit on to destroy this system involves a radical change iu our finances, the oa l ug in of $900,000,000 of loans these bauas have made to the peo p:e, and the vast derangemeut, dis tress, and contract ou incident to the passage to another and a new system. The principal reason for this proposed ohango is that the Gov ernment is paying interest to these hanks upon their bonds, which, it is alleged, is an increased burden and expeadituie. This argument ought not to deceive an intelligent person. If these bonds were not held by the fianks they would be held by some body else, to whom the interest would have to be paid. The hanks are required to buy bonds and depos it tneiu as secur ty for tneir notes, whica notes they must obtain from the Government, paying tne expense of printing them. There is a saio gua*d against over issue, while me deposit of the bonds makes tne note holder and the Government absolute ly secure. Hut if the nri.ional bank notes ar jto ho replaced by green back's, there must bu a new issue of $354,000,000, making the aggregate amount $730,000,000. If the Gov ernment oauuol obtain the gold to redeem $382,000,000, where will it get the gold to redeem $730,000,000, and if mu return of specie payments he des'rahle, and it is hindered by the impossibility to redeem the ex isting greehauks, what is to he done when the amount is increased 100 percent. The day of specie pay ment is postponed at least ten years, and according to the generally re ceived theories, this will add largely to the depreciation of the greenbacks. Iu the act of 1840 a distinct pledge was given that the volume of green backs should not exceed $400,000,- 000. The posi'iou of tne Democra cy is beset with conflicts and dilli cullies. When chief justice Chase decided the acts of 1802 and 1803 unconstitutional, the Democrats sus tained the uecision, and when two new Judges were appointed to the Supreme bench by the Piesideut, and that decision was reserved, the Democrats cried out agamst a pack ed court. During the rebellion, when greenbacks were a necessity, they denounced them with every epithet at their command, and do med the power to issue them. In a tune of profound peace, to gain a pol tical advantage, they assert the po ver, though it would involve l. broken pledge, and is stripped of the plea of necessity. NEGRO FREJUD.CK The Democratic Convention “viewed with abhorrence” the at tempt to take control of ail the schools, colleges, churches, hotels, railroads, steam boats, theaters, and graveyards, lor the purpose of es tablishing negro equality, aud they “arraign Senators Morton and Pratt for their votes ou thts infamous measure.” I arraign the authors ot lhi< resolution for gross ignorance ot the civil rights bill. It does uot take control ofany of these places, but simply makes it a penal ofleuse to deprive a negro of bis equal enjoy ment of these because ot his race and color. If colored chil dren enjoy the equal benefits of the common schools, though inseparate schools, the Civil Rights bill is com plied with. The Fou teenth amend ment makes all colored people citi zens, places everybody ou an equali ty, and the constitution of the btr.te of Indiana mskes it the duly of the Legislature “to establish and main lian a system of education the bene fits of which shall be open and free to all. What more does the Civil Rights bill in this behalf than the State Constitution ? The superior Court of Marion county, in a decis ion rendered by Judge Perkins, a distinguisned Democrat, and for many years a member of the Su preme bench, declared that colored children have equal rights with white children in public schools, and could not be excluded from their equal benefits aud enjoyment. Tbe old bugbear of social equality, which has so often done service in tbe case of Democracy, is again paraded to affright tbe soul of those who do uot feel confident of their social positions. The school, hotel and graveyard questions are about the best hold the Democracy have upon the preju dice against color and race, and we must expect to see them make the most of them. The future is long, and revelation, h.story, and reason alike teach us that justice aud the right will triumph in the end. The doctrine of civil and political equali ty has been firmly intrenched in|tbe Constitution, aud, notwithstanding tbe obstacles thrown in its pathway by lingering prejudice and tbe exi gency of parties, will march to a speedy and final t'iumpb. The Democratic party s pledged by its Constitution, its history, affiliations and hopes of the future to undying hostility to the negro race. The Republican party is pledged by its immortal history, by its sacred prin ciples, to stand by tbe five millions of new-born freemen, and must con tinue to be in tbe future, as it has in tbe past, the party of liberty, equali ty, justice, aud tbe indivisible union ot tbe States. Without any apology for tbe corruptions and disorde/s in the Slate of South Carolina, or else where in the South, the Republican party recognizes them as evils neces sarily resulting from the rebellion and the disordered condition of so ciety. For this disorder tbe Demo cratic party is responsible ; for tbe mental and moral condition of tbe negroes, slavery and its abettors are responsible. For tbe preservation of tbe Union, for tbe abolition of slavery, tbe enfranchisement of the negroes, and the reconstruction ot State Government iu tbe South upon the principles of liberty and equal rights to all, the Republican party is proud to take tbe responsibility. THE TARIKP. The Democratic Convention de clared for a tariff'for revenue, intend ing to have it understood as favoring free trade as against protection ; but every man knows that a revenue tar iff is to a greater or less extent, a protective tariff'. A “horizontal” tariff, regulated to raise two hundred millions of dollars, would, as to many articles, be prohibitory, and hence the tariff must be discrimina ting. Some years since Indiana Democrats favored the placing of the highest duties on articles tbat could not be produced io the United Stales —as tea and coffee—and a'i articles that weremauulactured here should be allowed to come in free, or as near free as possible. It was argued that if the tariff gave protec tion to home production it would diminish the Importation, and there fore diminish the revenue. It was •o obvious that a tariff levied upon these principles would be for the benefit of foreign as agamst home industry, that this line of argument has been abandoned ; and the Re publican party succeeding to power, framed its tariff and has constantly maintained it, upon the principle that •t should not he either specially in favor of ho no or foreign manufac ture, hut so as to afford lair and reas onable competition, reiying upon tlifit to reduce prices. Row sense lets th s jargon of free t.hde to the people of the M'ssiss ppi Valley, who live at a distance ot 800 miles from the sea board, and to whom the cost of transportation must ever he a great obstacle and expense in the approach to foreigu markets. We have a soil of unsurpassed fertility, mineral resources, coal, timber, and all the means for ‘sustaining a vast and varied industry, aud of thus be coming independent of distant States. How unwise, therefore, for us to cul tivate a policy winch makes us de pendent on foreign, distant, and costly markets for onr productions, and to import those articles we o&u curse ves p oduce? Just when the Line has come for the West to de velop itse aud for the estahlisn ment of our mdusiries upon sure fount*alio r .s, wo are met with the insane cry of free trade, advised to lUtow down every protection to in dustry, to put America labor upon a level, as to dignity and price, with the pr upo * labor of Europe, and to continue our dependence upon the East, »ud the payment of tribute to lb e'gu countries. England, France, and Germany protected their iudus* tries by tariff* uutil they were com pletely established, and had nothing to fear from tower wages or cheaper capital in surrounding countries, and then united ill a labor of disinterest ed affection to instruct the people of the United Htales in the beauties of free trade. Doctrinarians may con tinue to higgle about the tanlf, hut we may rest assured that it will he maintained substantially as it is dur ing this generation. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. Another question of paramount i(nportß”oo is the change m the sys tem of UroK’denual elections. The dangers and imperfections of the present rysteni aie well understood, und may plunge the nat'on into civil war at any time. The theory and reasons for the establishment of the electoral colleges have all failed, and the colleges are potent only for mischief. A small majority may de termine the vole of a whole Blale, electors being t chosuu on a general ticket, and, as in New York has been frequently tho case, a Presiden tial vote in a pa ticular locality may carry the entire State. If the col leges fall to elect, tho election goes to tho House of Representatives, wherein Nevada with only 40,000 inhabitants, has the same vote as New York with he' 6,000,000 popu lation. In 1825 Mr. Adams who had received less than one third of the popular vote, was elected by tho House over Gen. Jackson, who had rece ved a large plurality over the popular and electoral vote. The path of duty is the path of safety. We should brush away the electoral machinery and the election by the House of Representatives, and choose tho President and Vice Pres ident by direct vote of tho people, giving tho olootion to tho candidate who has received tho highest uuui ■ her of votes. THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. The Senator examined tne trans portation question at considerable length, affirming the power of Con gress to regulate inter-State com merce, and of each State to control its own individual commerce, sub ject only to tbe restrictions of the Constitution of tbe United States.- What Congress has already done was clearly explained, but the question, iu all its bearings, was one of great delicacy and moment to the country and could not be hastily solved. It is not practicable for Congress to enact general laws regulating rates for traffic. These must vary from a multitude of local circumstances, but it is clearly within tbe power of Congress, and seems to be praetica ble, to establish Roards ot Railroad Commissioners to be vested with cer tain powers, to be governed by gen end regulations, within which they sha'l have the power to supervise and regulate the rate for freight arid passengers upon ail inter-State ra roads, so as to prevent unjust dis criminations between different local ities or classes of persons ; to pre vent combinations between railroad corporations aud other persons to put up the prices of freights or pas senger fares ; to prevent railway corporations from taking advantage of the obtruction of lakes, rivers and cauals by frost or by low water; to put freight or taxes beyond what would be a reasonable, fair and hon est profit; and, in abort, to prevent extortions and impoaitions by rail road companies upon the people of the country, however attempted to be practiced. The interests and rights of ail parties should be pro tected with equal care aud vigilance, the railroad companies to be left in the control of their property as far as may be consistent with public interests, and not to be interfered with by these Roards of Commis sioners except in clear cases. While Congress must and should look to it that the people do not suffer from oppression by capitalists, combina lions or corporations, tbe people, on the other hand, should remember tbxt railroads are iudispensiblc to tbe growth aud prosperity of tbe country, and tbe construction of more becomes important from year to year. Capital is timid, and even will not invest in building new roads if legislation is bad whereby railroad property is made less valuable and secure. Great moderation should be bad aud care taken that legisla tion should be aimed only at real abuses, aud interfere as little as pos sible with the capital of railroads by their owners. CANADIAN RECIPROCITY. The draft of the Reciprocity Treaty with Canada does not meet the Senator’s approval. He fails to see in it aDy advantages to be gain ed by the whole country, and espec ially by the States of the Northwest. The proposed treaty would give to Canada substantially the advantages of being a State of the Union, while she still retains all the advantage of the British connection, and is to us, in every respect, a foreign country. Her adherence to the British Gov en ment springe from hostility to the United States; her trade and affilia tions are naturally with u«, and for fi/e months in the year she is shut out from commercial connection with Europe save through our terri tory. Canada does not nor cannot flourish in her present political rela tions, and in the interest of her inde pendence the Reciprocity Treaty should not be concluded. So long as she chooses to remain a part of Great Britain, she should be consist ently treated as such. CONCBCSXON. In conclusion, I am proud to say that, while the Republican Party may have erred, it has not proved false to any great principle, nor oow- I Established July 1850. ardly hi tho presence of any great quoNtiou.

M . Chapin, wiio l>a* to r eighteen yearn done faithful amt lea lead edi tor al work on the Marshall County Times, and made it one of Ino beat local paper? in the Statu, and at the Manic time one of the beat paying pa poiM, ia becoming tired of bia thank less woik, and tliinka of giving np liih home field. He Itaa built up one of the larguat country newapaper of ficea in lowa ; the Times haa a cir culation and an influence Much aa few village journals dare aspire to. Ilia reputation aa ail lioucal and able edi tor ia aecond to that of no man in lowa. Tho Times under hia man agement, haa nurvived almoat a doz en compotitora in MarHhalitown. Chapin haa done more than any oth er man to build up hia town and give it fame aa one ol the moat prosperous and enterprising of lowa'a aecond rate dies. From lna editorial an nouncing that lie baa in contempla tion a removal to a broader hold, we copy the following oxtraeta, becauae they tell dome plain truths—aa true here aa in M andi all town, and pertin ent in illustrating the experience ol many an editor: “The editor is tho target against which the dart ol the enemy is ever aimed, he is abused lor not doing this or for doing that, ho is condemn ed on all hands hta ollicu ia full of tho miaalea of tho foe aimed at his life, ho is never commended when he does a irood act neither is it re membered to bis credit ; he and hia paper are the grand omnibus that ia to carry every business man through safely, every measure in which the public ia interested, every benevo lent object ; be ia to bo judge, preacher, deacon, and jury, and do all this vaat work like a missionary without pay or the thought of re ward. This man must be made great, that man uhused, this abuse corrected, and he is to do all and for reward receive only abuse and cors es. Nobody tliinka of paying him, and even have the cheek to ask him to do this job or that job without pay because the public ia interested ; be is to foot all the public’s bills, be must advocate temperance and re ligion and do more than all the leo tuiers and preachers combined or be is gone for. No thanks for this, but if he r eporta a ho r se race they gel after him with a rosoiu.iou of con acre. It ia only an editor they are tearing to pieces, jpid lie haa no hu man feelings that can be wounded. What wonder that the t'red editor, often wc'k'ag pas*, rn dnight to give his readers a readable paj er, occa sionally turns on bis enemies and Hays them without mercy. ,r ’he only wonder is he does not do it oftener. Neither is it any wonder that he retires from the chair editor ial occasionally in disgust and re solves he will never occupy it Again. In a larger field there is less of this small kind of warfare and more to encourage the fa'thful editor. We have exposed the coi r uptions and rings that are rio'.ing on the people’s earn rigs, and are abused and deixd ed by them, while the people whose interest we have championed read the exposures, pass them by w'thout thought or credence, denouncing them aa Chapin’s lies, and no fruit but that which is bitter is the result. What wonder that we should t*re of this pionee' missionary work tliLt has no reward but diatrrst and abuse. We a'e like the missionary who wo r :ed faithfully to convert a tribe of Ind’ans, and after ten yea r s wasted and not having converted any, and having lost bis scalp, aban doned the fieid in disgust, we have sickened of the work conscientiously engaged in of uncover ng the abuses and frauds that be, and while they may be termed “Chapin's lies,” we have aimed to state the exact truth and will add that we have never pub lished anything editorial that we did not have the best reasons for be lieving to be true, and which have almost universally proven to be such. To proclaim truths and have them pronounced lies, without any effort to prove them such, is dishearten ing indeed. An editor cannot live on such food, and yet ours is but an illustration of the experience of oth ers. If we could publish a “good Lord and good Devil” paper we pre sume the task would be less irksome, but we must print facts though they hurt and are disbelieved.” SHORTS. The fashion of parting people’s names in the middle is sometimes a little inconvenient. A young lady saw A. Devon Hull mentioned in a paper and wanted to know who he wa-. “Yes, sir,” said a Michigan 4th of July Orator, “Putnam went right in to the wolf s den, dragged her out and the independence of America was secured.” The Moulton Apprnooee Co.

This accounts for the unscrupulous lying about Sampson which iiils that sheet, and the people will understand the mercenary mo tive that prompta it. Rut Gates had better watch his man, and see to it that no one augments the thirty pieces of silver with which he bought bia editorial Judas. An editor who could lick the dust from the feet of Lough ridge with a relish when the vision of a post oflice was before him, arid then so soon as that vision faded thrust his editorial poniard into the vitals of the man al whose heels he had trotted like a lousy spaniel, is capable of concocting even worse falsehoods than have yet appeared in the Standard in connection with the Congressional contest in lliia District. Resisting the Evil One. At a camp meeting, not long ago, a man clad in a thin linen suit seated himself on one of the rickety benches beside a fat m*n who occupied full one-third of the concern. When the services were ended the fat man arose, and the gentleman in thin linen suddenly began twisting around in a surprising manner, while his countenance was significant of mortal anguish. His ac ions attracted the attention of some of the brethren, and one of them, a solemn-visaged individual, who looked as though he had just swallowed a pill, approached the writhing body, and laid his hand on the man’s shoulder, and said— “ Brother, if you are resisting the promptings of the Kvil One, strive manfully, and you will triumphal last. Remember, Jacob wrestled with the angel, and—” “I dunno but he did,” interrupted the agonized man, “but if Jacob had the seat of his trowers and a little bit of his meat caught in a condemned crack he wouldn’t feel like railing' with an angel or any other critter.” Would you believe it ? A circular directed to the agent of Appleton’s New Cyclopa dia at Bar lingtou informs him that the second volume of that work has been “call ed in,” owing to a serious error in the autobiography of If. W. 15., and directing the agent to collect that volume from all who bought the work, and return it to New York—to be replaced without extra charge to the buyer. Appleton says in a P. S. : “The autobiography of the great man is lacking in many partic ulars. The fellow who wrote it was not up with the times ; he has been discharged. F. M. or T. T. will fur nish a revised autobiography of H. W. up to the present time.” A Good Cure. The coolest man has beeu dis covered at Burlington. A funeral was in progress. Just as the coffin was being lowered into the grave a young man stepped out from the crowd of mourners, deliberately opened a penknife, chipped a splin ter from the pine box in which the coffin was encased, and cooly pro ceeded to wb'ttle out a toothpick. On Friday n ; gbt a young somnam bulist, in the shspe of s son of a law yer, residing in the Third Ward, was completely cured of the disease- He went into the room where the hired girl was sleeping, and she got out of lied and knocked him down with a chair.
