PEONISM IN MEXICO.
A correspondent of the Toronto Leader, writing from Mexico, gives an interesting account of the system of "peonism," or slavery in force in that country. He says : It is generally believed out of Mexico that Mexico achieved her independance she become a free country, and that slavery was abolished. This was not the case. The only change that was made being, that no one could be forcibly taken as a slave im lett he owed a sum which he either could not or would not pay, In such cses the the debtor could be taken by the creditor, and made to labor for him for aa allow ance of food scarcely sufficient to maintain existence, and for a certain amount of wa ges less actually than was required to par church dues. The poor creature wa3 not given any clothes nor allowed any pittance to buy tobacco or other (considered) neces sities. So he (or she) soon had to borrow more, till at last the party had so irretreva- bly sold himself that be remained a slave for life If he should be taken sick, the doctor's bill, with extortionate interest is added to his blood money the medical man, it be be a Mexican, often readily sign log a receipt for several tiroes the amount be has received. A free man requinug a temporary advance, and having no other property, is obliged to pawn either him self or some of his children, to raise the required amount. The poor child thus pawned is necessitated to add to its liabiii ties in order to furnish himself with clothes; and seldom does one thus disposed of by his parent become a free agent again. Instances occur every day where men wishing to marry, but not having the $25 to pay the poor clergy, have to seek a party willing to take them in pawn for that amouut, which soon swells to a great er; and cases are by no means rare where children have to be pawned, and so made eternal slaves, to pay the Church for per forming the general rites over a dead pa rent! As gambling is lawful here, should a party lose more than he can pay at the gaming table, or at a cock fight, he is ta ken before the Alcalde and pawned to whoever will advance the funds. A wife can pawn herself, and thus leave her homo and become the properly of another. Such is liberty in free, independent and Christian Mexico! The peon is sold by law, his parent, or by himself; should he not like his employ er he can change him, if he can change him, if he can find any party to slake the required amount on his head. But some times this is a difficult matter, as owners of peons do not like thus to encourage in subordination among each other's slaves. The children may be pawned to as many different parties as there are children. Xne Church has set a high price upon every rite $2 for christening a peon's child, $25 for marrying'it, and $7 for bury ing it. Death of a Tennessee Hermit. The McMinnville (Tenn.) New Era an nounces the deat.li, on 23d ulL, of Daniel West, the well known hermit of the moun tains, at the age of seventy-eight. He had lived for a number of years in the hollow of a large American Poplar Iree, in the opening of which be had fitted a rude door. In the center of ibis hollow he would build his fire in winter, for cooking his plain meals. The hollow also served as his sleeping apartment, and it is said he slept in a sitting posture, reclining against tbe wall of bis bouse. Adjoining or near to this tree be had a rude shed which he used as a workshop, where he manufactur ed chairs, boxes, cider mills, etc. : He was a North Carolinian by birth, and was a soldier in the war of 1812. He was at the mobile station when tbe bat tle of New New Orleans was fought, and heard the booming of the guns when his old General was whipping the British. He married, it is said, in early life a wo man whose husband had left her, and who was to ber considered dead. They bad one child, and lived together in great hap piness and harmony. After the lapse of years the former husband returned and claimed bis wife. He told her to make her own choice, if she loved bim most, to remain with him and she would never re pent it; if, however, 6he loved and prefer red to go with her first husband, to do so, and he would never blame her. She de cided to go with the first. Daniel West was at that time in com fortable circumstances, had a quantity of stock, and was adding to his substance ev ery year. After the desertion of the wo man bo loved, he became dejected, let his properly run to ruin, and finally adopted the strange and secluded life of a hermit, in his tree. He lived in this way many years. He did not do so from necessity (for he had friends who besought him to make tbeu bome bis own) but from choice. When questioned as to why ha preferred uch a mode of life, he only answered that, 'The world had not used him well." And yet he did not appear to be soured in bis disposition or embittered in his feelings to ward it. Japanese Little Folks. During more than half a year's residence in Japan, I have never seen a quarrel among young or old. I have seen the children at their sports, flying their kites on the hills, and no amount of intertangled strings or kites lodged in the trees provoked angry words or impatience. I have seen them intent on their games of jackstones and marbles un der tbe shaded gateways of the temples, bat have never seen an approach to a quar rel among them. Tbey are taught im plicit obedience to their parents, but I never seen one of them chastised. Respect and reverence to the aged is universal. A crying child is a rarity seldom ever seen or heard. We have nothing to teach them in this respect out of our abundant civili zation. I speak what I know of the little folks of Japan, for more than any other for igner have I been among them. Of all that Japan holds there is nothing I like half so well as- the hnppy" children. I shall always remember their sloe black eyes and rudy brown faces with pleasure. I have played battle door with the little maidens in the streets, and flown kites in the fields with as happy a set of boys as one could wish to see. They have been my guides in my rambles, shown me where all the streams and the ponds, where the flowers lay hid in the thicket, wher the berries were ripening on the hills; they have brought me shells from the ocean and blossoms from the field, presenting them with all the modesty and with a less bash ful grace than a young American boy would do., - We have hunted tbe fox holes togeth er, and looked for the green and' golden ducks among tbe hedge. They have laugh ed at my broken Japanese and taught me better, and for a happy, good natured set of children. I will turn out my little Jap anese friends against the. world. God bless the boys and girls of Nipbon ! Cor Home Journal. "-' 7 i : : ' -'. ' A REAL MARY HAMMET. Those who have read "Miss Gilbert's Career" will understand the connection our headline has with what follows below: those who have not read the book, we ad vise to do so. Tbe Detroit Free Press says: A young man named James Graham arrived in town yesterday morning in search of his sister, a young woman of about seventeen years of age, who run away from home and neglected to leave anv trace of her whereabouts. She bad been gone about two weeks, and tbe chan ces of finding her were very slight, but the young man was sanguine, and displayed a daguerreotype picture of ber fair countan ance, which attracted universal attention by its striking beauty. By the aid of the picture the girl was traced to a boarding bonse where a hackmam remembered "hauling" her. The young lady was 60on locked in the arms of her brother, who stopped to ask no questions, but seized a valise and packed np ber little duds in no time at all. She demurred slightly; he expostulated, and promised all sorts of things; to which sbe listened very nncon cernedly, merely interrogating in a very quiet way, when he got through, "Can I have Billy 1" "Have the devil, if you want to," shouted tb excited yonng man, 'so you only come home." A sudden light gleamed in her fine eyes, and, with out further demuri they made a vigorous start for the Queen's dominions. No ex planations were made, but there was some thing about that "Billy" that threw a world of light on the case. Sbe bad sub sisted on a small amount of money which she had brought with her, and was intend ing to tench school. You'rk Wanted. Young man, you're wanted ; a woman wants you. Don't wait to be neb ; if you do, remember, ten to one if you are fit to get married. Marry while you are young, and struggle np together, Exchange. but mark, young man, thai woman does not want you if she is to divide her affec tions with a cigar, spittoon or a whisky jug. Neither does she want vou simply became you are a man, the definition of which is too apt to be an animal who wears bifurcated garments on bis lower limbs, a a quarter section of stovepipe on his head, swears like a pirate, and is given to filthy practices generally. She wants you for a companion, a helpmate she wants you, if you have learned to regulate your passions and appetites; in fact she wants you if you are made in the image of God, not in the likeness of a beast, if you are strong in good put pose, firm in resistance to evil, pure in thought and action as you require her to be, and without which inward and outward purity neither of you are fitted for busband or wife if you love virtue and abhor vice, if you are gentlemanly, forbear ing and kind, not loud talking, exciting and brutal, then young man, that woman wants yon; that fair, modest, cheerful, bright, frank-spoken woman, we mean, who fills our ideas of maiden and wife if sbe wants you ; marry her when you like, whe ther you are rich or poor; we will trust you both on the conditions named, without fur ther scrutiny. Astonishing Fact Objection of a Clergrman to a Large Salart. Minis ters in our day rarely object to an increase of salary, but we find in an exchange a capital story of an old Connecticut pastor who declined it for substantial reasons: His country parish raised his salary from $300 to $100. The good man objected for three reasons. "First," said he, "because you can't af ford to give me more than $300." "Second, because my preaching isn't worth more than that. "Third, because I have to collect my sal ary, which, heretofore, has been the hard est part of my labor among you. If I have to collect an additional hundred, it will kill me." 5TBy tbe accident on the Railroad runing from Fall River to Boston,, a few days since, a Mrs. Drinkwaler had her arm torn off. A fellow passenger says: Mrs. Drinkwater who bad her arm torn off, was sitting near us at the time of the accident, and was thrown down. She got up, after tbe train stopped, and was leaving the car, when she said to ber companion, "I believe my arm is gone !" Her compan ion replied, "Oh, no. it is only numb from a bruise." A moment after she said "It is gone, for I cannot find my band" Her companion removed some of her clothing and found that the arm bad been taken off near the pocket of the shoulder. It was afterwards found, under the car, with glove still upon its hand. Demcbacy Assigned. The Plaindealer it would seem, goes for a qnasi assignment of tbe Douglas Democracy of tbe .North to the Bell-Everett or American party of the boutb. In a recent issue, it says; "The Douglas popular sovereignty party and Bell-Union party South, will form in future the great National and triumphant Democratic party of this country." There you have it right from the "bell weather" of the Reserve "Democracy." How do our German and Irish democrats like that sort of talk ? Are they prepared for such an arrangement as that i If they are, wc suppose we shall bear no more de nunciations of the "Dark Lantern" gentry.
