It is one of the oldest and best Weeklies in the Bute and in its literary and moral tone is not excelled. It has been preeminently a pioneer on the sub ject of temperance and other moral ques tions, and for a general family newspaper is just the thing. For terms see prospectus referred to. Subscriptions received at this office At the Louisville Convention, by request ofthe President, Miss Willard, Mrs. W. A Ingham, ot Cleveland, read ft paper on the Origin and History of the Woman's N " tiooal Christian Temperance Union. It originated at Chatauqua in August, 1874, as many of our readers will remember, and the suggestion came from Mrs. Mattie Mc Clellan Brown, of Alliance, Ohio. Mrs. Brown, together with Mrs. Jennie F. "Wil line, of Illinois. Mrs. G. W. Manly, of "Akron, and Mrs. Ingham, of Cleveland, ar ranged the preliminaries for the'first meet ing during the Assembly, and the organ izing convention was appointed then and held at Cleveland, O-, in November of that year. Forty States andTerritories are now represented, and the Union has thirty-three Departments ' and sixteen hundred Auxi liaries, and in nearly all parts of the world the power and influence of this woman's temperance inurement is ten uu oc&iiuwi- edged. ' The Result. The following from the New York Tri- . brae, so clearly and accurately shows the . Mason for the overwhelming Republican reverses of this campaign that we repro duce it for the benefit of those of our read era who would not otherwise see it If the results of this campaign shall purify and teach' the Republican party wisdom, . the lesson will not have been In vain ; but if not, then it can furnish no very good reason for continuing to live, and had bet ter die as speedily as possible. But we have confidence in the rank and file who , compose it, and expect from it renewed usefulness and vigor: The defeat of the Saratoga ticket yester day was overwhelming. There will be no mistake as to who did iu This is no vic- . tory achieved by Democrats. Since the first appearance of the Republican party in National politics, there has never been ft time when the Democrats could com - mand a majority of a hundred and twenty- ' five thousand in this State, or the half of it Yesterday Republicans defeated their own ticket as the only means left them of serv- . ing notice that they would no longer sub mit to be disfranchised at the Convention ' and yet driven to ratify its nominations at - the polls. The tactics of the President's friends sufficed for Saratoga but failed when spread out over the State ; and simi lar cases elsewhere have led to the same result "The figures in this State tell the story. ' The lowest ebb the Republican party has reached in New York was in the middle of Genera Grant's scandalous second term, when the Democrats had a majority of fifty thousand. Before that, the Republican low-water mark had been toward the close of Andrew Johnson's Administration, when the Democrats, reached nearly forty- eight thousand. The State went against Hsyes in 1876 by thirty-two thousand ; but that able and upright officer,, so much abused by the architects of yesterday's colossal disaster, succeeded, the very next year, la reducing this figure to eleven thousand, and thenceforward carried the State by steadily increasing majorities. In 1878 it was Republican by thirty-four thousand ; in 1879 by forty-two thousand. and la 1880 by forty -four thousand. Now in Mr. Arthur's nerveless hands, and under the malignant management ot his friends, Republicans are driven to defeat their own parry by a majority of over hundred thousand. ' "When Mr. Arthur succeeded to an office - for which no human being had thought of selecting him, he found the Republican party in tri umphant possession of the conn - try, and stronger with the people than it had been since General Grant's first elec tion. To what a little over one year of his policy has brought his party, yesterday's returns from more 4han half the Union show. It is the loudest and harshest warn ing given in recent times to any President . The people serve notice upon Mr. Arthur that they will not tolerate his attempt to build up ft faction at the expense of his party, will not tolerate the monstrous interference of his representatives in for- - else unpopular nominations, and that ' they wish him henceforth diligently to mind his own business. - They are in the mood of the Judge who wanted nothing ' more from that defendant but silence, and J precious little of that. And they mean the same notice to apply to the under- Bosses, like Cameron, who, within their resDective provinces, have pursued the same selfish and senseless course; . - "Of course the result in this State has been affected' by Incidental causes. The forgery put upon the State Committee by the President's intimate personal friend and political representative was the most potent Its effect was intensified by the other frauds and forgeries which actually reversed the attitude ofthe State Committee and thus controlled the organization ofthe Convention. Then came the incredible lolly of putting the most odious machine politican in New York at the head of the new State Committee, to manage the cam paign. The same insolence of the machine that prompted this came out in the brazen boast that they didnt care what the dis satisfied Republicans thought ; they could have a million dollars to elect this ticket Their folly degenerated into idiocy when they put up Howard Carroll for Congress-man-at-large. Then the reverse in Ohio weakened them; and Pennsylvania and New York acted on each other, each mak ing the trouble in the other worse. It must be admitted, too, that Mr. Folger did not prove a good candidate. His letter of acceptance was unfortunate. His letter about the influence of Republican defeat on Wall Street was worse. His loss of his own county produced a bad impression. and his holding on to his place at Wash ington deepened it But, after all, the one controlling cause of the defeat was the same here, in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. The people will not tolerate Boss rule, whether in a President or his underliDgs; and they wish Mr. Arthur to .take notice of their displeasure. Well will it be for him if he have the wisdom to do it Is the party hbpelessly injured by this process of disciplining its Bosses J We do not think so. Can it pull together again in time for 1884 ? We do not have a doubt of it The organization that is strong enough to venture on yesterday's work is strong enough, and wise enough, and united enough yet to rule the country. Its chances for 1881 are better for the results of 1882." OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. To the Editor at Um KxTXBrarc. After the smoke of battle it is well to look over the field and if possible find by our sad experience, something that may be of future service to us and the noble party that has been so signally rebuked by vox populi at the ballot box. It may well be recognized once for all that the people in spite of bossism are determined to rule in this country. Their will Is mightier than that ofthe Camerons, Cook- lings, et al. The people desire honest legis lation and fewer River and Harbor Bills. Campaigns conducted and directed by a National Congressional Committee here at the Capital, with funds arbitrarily levied, though to hide the lie claimed to be volun tarily given, is a system not very popular with the people at the present time. The coalition made between the Readjustee, alias Repudiators of Virginia, and Repub licans, does not appear to have strengthen ed the party at the North, that strange as it may seem have an abiding sense of hon or, and believe tnataebtsoi me oiaie as well as the general Government should be liquidated on the basis of one hundred cents on the dollar. Millions of voters entertained the wish to bury with the dust of the beloved Garfield, the memory of all the unfortunate scenes that led to his tak ing off, but disappointed in this hope, they have by their passivity or their votes, made proof of their utter disgust, and buried stalwartism and its over zealous ad vocates so deep that it can never be resur rected. Those who have been instrumen tal in forcing this issue, while they have nearly destroyed the party, it is some con sol at ion to know that they have committed hari-kari themselves. The people of this country are tolerably independent They are the sovereigns, are loyal to the old flag and to Republican principles, and this re buke speaks in thunder tones as a danger signal. Meanwhile let us correct the evils that have crept into our party management repair the leaks and trim our Bails, and with some magnetic leader sure to rise, let ns with high hopes prepare for the contest of 1884. AH is not lost ' The party that saved the country, still lives. "Fear not each sadden mood and shock ; lis of tha wave and not the rock; Ti bat the flipping of a sail, -And not a tent made by the gale. In spite of rock and tempest roar. In spite of false lights on the (bore, Sail on nor fear to braaat the sea, Oar heart oar hope are all with thee." The Washington monument now reaches the lofty height of 822 feet and 20 feet will yet be added before cold weather fore-closes the work. Stone-cutting will go on through the winter and a large amount of material will be at band to be laid into the shaft on the opening of spring, Col. Casey expects to complete the marble shaft by June 1st, 1884. Great interest is now taken in the design for the .terrace about the base of the monument, also in the material to be used in the cap or root, which will ex tend in pyramidal form, fifty feet above the summit of the marble shaft 500 feet high. Iron and glass have been proposed as the proper materia, and it has also been suggested that the cap should be covered with slabs of marble. Designs have been drawn by Architect Clarke, of the Capitol, for the terrace. One plan contemplates a single terrace, 220 feet square, with wide flights of stairs, and Vnother a double ter race there being an inner terrace imme diately about the base of the shaft The four plaques designated by Mr. Larkin Mead are provided with places in Mr. Clarke's design in the massive walls of the terrace, one being placed on each of the four sides.' These plaques were de signed to be placed about the shaft itself, near the base but objection is made that such a disposition of them would destroy the grand effect made by the solid un broken shaft of marble. This completed monument will be the highest shaft in the world, and with its enormous elevator and iron stair case it will furnish to visiting strangers a view of the city of surpassing beauty while at night from its dizzy height an immense electric light will be seen in the territory surrounding for fifty miles away.' Postmaster General Howe will urge upon Congress several important measures that are greatly needed by the wants of the people. He feels that the public have too long been compelled to pay tribute to the greed of mammoth telegraph corpora tions, whose manipulators have grown rich by stock jobbing at the expense of the people. The Government holds the exclusive right to control the slow process of transmitting, through letters, all com munications, but permits these corpora tions to monopolize the faster methods. The Postmaster General justly believes it to be the business of the Department to facilitate prompt and rapid intercourse be tween the people. In his opinion the Post Office Department ought to be equipped with every facility for postal telegraphy. The Government can do it cheaper than companies, -and certainly with the same promptness. As to the means, the Post master General has not yet outlined bis report His object is to press the matter upon the attention of Congress and let legislative wisdom devise the be9t method for practically carrying out the system. - Phaks.

My advice to every man who is doing comfortably well where he is; who with nis lamiiy, needs no cnange on account of climatic influences; who has no money to waste experimenting to see whether a change would suit, to remain content-, edly where he is. But visit the West before vou deter mine to break up the home East. Every change is at first attended with financial loss, and most cost y of all, a sacrifice of the tender associations which cling about the place we have always known as home. Then, too, we are apt to select the most brilliant colors with which to tint- the picture of imagination, and when the duller shades of reality present themselves, as they are sure to do when the reaction from excitement comes, tbe roses fade from our picture and gloom settles for a time upon it. It needs a oravo Heart, a strong, earnest determin ation to be contented, to carry any one through the first year in a new home, lar away irom all acquaintances of the past. Given these and few can fa-1 to make for themselves a pleasant, prosper ous home here. But do not count upon having roses strewn in your paths, or ti um puis sounded to lead you on to tne delectable hills. Every man is for him self here as much as elsewhere. In some instances, iio doubt, persons go away who can jionestly say, "I was a stranger ana 'tney took me in,' " but if you keep your eyes open and don't start out with the belief that you know it all, and a lit tle more, you hold as good a hand as other players in the game of life. L. D. U., in tne (Cincinnati Uommercia;. A Substitute for Black Walnut. Black Birch, which is rapid. coming into favor, is a close-grained t,nu very handsome wood, and can be easily stain ed to resemble walnut exactly, li is just as easy to work; and Is suitable for near ly, if not all, the purposes to which black walnut is at present applita. isircn is much the same color aa cherry, but the latter wood is now very scarce, and con sequently dear. It is a difficult thing to obtain cherry at $50 per 1,000 feet, while birch wood can be had at any saw mill at $1 per thousand. When properly stained it is almost impossible to distin guish the difference between it and wal nut, as it Is susceptible of a beautiful polish equal to any wood now used 1 the manufacture of furniture. In the forests throughout Ontario, birch grows in abundance, especially if the land is not too boggy . There is a great airter-' ence in the wood of dinerent sections Where the land is high and dry the wood is firm and e'etir; but if the land is low ana wet the wood has a tendency to be soft, and often of a bluish color. In all the Northern regions it can be found in great abundance, and as the tree grows to great size, little trouble is experienced in procuring it in large quantities. lo ronto Globe. The Puritan Migration. The 21,000 English Puritans who came over to New England before the meeting of the .Locg Parliament have now In creased to nearly 13,000,000. According to the most careful estimates, at least one-fourth of the whole population of the United States at the present moment is descended from these men. Striking as this fact may seem, it is perhaps less striking than the fact of the original mi gration when we stop to contemplate it in its full meaning. In these times, when great steamers are sailing every day from .European ports, bringing bun dreds of emigrants to a countiy which is at least as far. advanced in material cm lization aa the country which they leave. the arrival of a thousand new citizens each day has come to be a commonplace event. But in (he seventeenth century the transfer of 21,000 well-to-do people within twenty years from their comfort able homes in England to the American wilderness wes by no means a common place event It assumed somewhat the character of the migration of a who e people. In the quaint thought of some of our forefathers themselves it was aptly likened to the exodus of Isreal from the Egyptian house of bondage. John Fiske tn llarpers Magazine for December. "Do hogs pay?" asks one of our edi torial brethren, whose work Is an effort to solve agricultural and such problems.
