By this paper I wish to contribute to the memory of one of the honored dead of Methodism. Dying about the time of the commencement of our Church litera ture in the West, but little has ever been said of one of the most honored of the church of his day, especially in Indiana, where his Vjors commenced, in 1301, and continued up to his death, in ti34, at his post on tins "mission district," embracing all Northern Indiana, and a pari, of Michi gan. My recollections of brother Armstrong were quickened, as 1 stood by his prnve, a short time since, in the nnprclending, yet neatly ke;T. and beautiful burying sround at Door Village. The following inscription is written upon a plain marble slab which marks his resting place: "sacred To tlie nii niory of REV. JAMES ARMSTRONG, Who died &pUmber 12, 13:U. AGED 47 YEAKS. He was a minister of Ihe Gospel i:i the Me: hodi.it Episcopal CUiuicii; hiboreu tliii'teeu years ia the Siuto of ImUana ; foundeJ the first meeting house in 2v wrt li e:n iiHliana, at Door Villag;;. iu l.t'i'J. 'He rest s from his labors and his trk do follow him.' '' Mr. Armstrong was iYeo.ueiitly at my father's house, on the ainirli, wt.ii: i was yet a little boy, and before coming to the North. Me was a man of pectiiar and va, ied taients, and of decided mark, whether in the pulpit or at the iiieside, so that he left his impress upon me in such a w av as that 1 shall never iiirei him. 1 v.ms not much of a theol ouian, nnd can not, of course, speak of the orthodoxy of his sermons, only that every body praised them, and when it was known he was to preach, it was I he signal for ail who could to go. The dUappoiii'imeiH ol a drunken tailor, in not gening to church in time, on t-unday morning, on a o-niici'-iv-meciiug occasion, is iu point. Ar rivirig jtut as the benediction was about to tie "pronounced, he called out, (ck-jr and k;;;o,) "1 say, Mr. Armstrong, w.-n't ym pi each bi line for us, t.iiis atli. r n.'.ony i could not gel here- in time, loi lieUey had bread to uake fir brcakia.:." i'liiCkiiig hi.-, coal, a number of uie ;iei.i bors near the mm said: ".''-it uomii, jiu! phy," ".-it down," "hush,'' e.;c.

An infidel doctor, one day, thought to' have some sport together with some blend.- whom he had gathered about huii for that purpose, at Armstrong's expense, whom he s;ov coming along the .-idew aik. Approaching, and The common saluta tions passed, the Doctor said: "Well. .Mr. A mi si "on::, you labor for the good oi souls ' " l"es." " Well, is it cerlaia that men have souls? Di:l you ever see one?" "iio." "Did yoa ever hear one :-" ".No." "Did you ever taste one?" "Ao." "Did you ever smell one ?" "2o." "Did you ever feel one?" "les." "Well, four out of the live t-en.-es are against you ; rather narrow ground to stand on," said the Dec tor, w ith a know ing wink to his friends, and a sigui.icant toss of the head. "Yon are a doctor, I believe?" said A. "Yes." "Your business is to "relieve pain;" "Yes." "Did you ever see a p-dn?' "No." "Did you ever smell one?" "Xo." The doctor's friends saw his dilemma, burst out in a hearty laugh, w hile the preacher started on baying, "1 have obeyed Solomon, and answered you according to your folly." bile holding a camp-meeting in the Wabash country, aud sw ay ing every thing by his eloquence, loi-ic, and pathos, his horse escaped from the pasture of one of the brethren, borne friends voluiiteerd to hunt the horse and leave tiie man of Gtid to do the work for w hich he seemed so fitted. Thev found the horse taken no by a Baptist man, some four or live miles away, who refused sternly to give him up, though assured it was eider Armstrong's horse, and no legal steps having yet been taken. They returned tot he caiup ground and reported the tacts. "Come on, boys," said brother A., "I'll go back wilk you." Arriving at the place, "1 understand," said Mr. A., "you have my horse here." "i have a horse of someone'; if he is yours, and you can prove property, you can take hini away." "Where is he?" "In the stable." ""Well, let's go and see him." Reaching ihe barnyard gate Mr. A. said, "Go, let him out, and if he is mine 1 11 prove him." The horse was let out of the stable. "Come here, Levi," said he, "come here! Yon are a pretty fellow; Come right up here ?" and thd horse marched up, and laying his head over his master's shoulder, he, patting him on the neck, in sight and heating of his friends and the Baptist farmer, he said: "Levi, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You have been in the itineracy with me now eight or ten years, and now have lo cated ! And w hat seems more strange, you have joined the Baptists!" ''If he is your horse," said the man, "take him along." Holding a meeting at Rob Roy, Foun tain county, Ind., a hired girl in the fami ly of an intidel joined the Church on pro bation, which greatly incensed Mr. C, who sent word to the preacher to know if ne wouia taKe ins bie doe on Drobation ? "If he has more sense and plely than his master, i win, wan the ready reDly. Mr. C, speaking of the circumstance, said to the writer, "He got me that time, didn't he ?" It remained for a mill-boy on Shawnee Prairie to get the sturt ot him. Mr. Arm strong was iond of drawing children into conversation, impressing -religious truth on the riind. Overtaking the lad, on a sack of meal, astride of his horse all mode the early settlers, he inquii J1, "Have you any preaching in these parts?" the country was new and sparsely settled. "Yes, sometimes." was the ready reply. "Who preaches for yon y" "Well, there is a man by the name of Turman preaches sometimes; and then there is another hy the name of Vriedenbuig he is the cir cuit rider; and there is a man by the name of A rnistrong comes sometimes, though I never seed him, but they say he can jrst beat the hind sights off of both them oth er fellows" General O. had employed a man to break prairie for hini, paying in advance for the work; but the man, though a Methodist, would forget his obligation, and go away and work for others, if he could get a cash job, and leave the Gener al to wait. It was getting laie in the sea son, and work engaged and paid for not done. The General complained to Aim strong, saying such a man should not, be allowed to stay in the Church. "Well," said A., "if we keep him we may be able to make toirt:thi!tg of him ; lr.it if we de Iivnr liriti nvcr t:i mil t'il ir.v,-.; 1 suit n1-. IK! y :t vil! not be able to r.ia ovit of him.

The hum of the village is the more ! distinct for the quiet which reigns around. Away in the ditawe extend the fields of growing corn like a tea of emer ald. The fields of ipenina: wheat are sway ed before the bree.'s. The leisure herds come from their shady retreat to graze the fields of clover; while upon the evening air is borne .he sweet odors of the ripen" ing grain; and the ear is saluted with the plowman's "whoa;" and the shrill and pensive "Poor Rob White." The low ing village kine come up the lane with leisure tre ui ; while Heating calves and laughing children iu expectation await the evening beverage.

The sun's good-night has been reflected back from blazing windows, and he has sunk to rest A single cloud lingers about the portals of the West, like dismal doubts that gath er about the good man's dying hour ; but pushing up his rays, like struggling hope, when the dark shadows of adversity fall about us, he shoots them far toward the zenith, and radiantly gilds the wtiole heavens with the beauty of his light, as though he had spread a mantle of molten gold overall the scene. Te evening stars come peeping forth, while the rising moon, in queenly beauty, makes all appear like enchantment; and the lakelets, scattered here and there, wear sheens lik ; liquid silver. The evening shadows, like a gossamer mantle, have fallen over all the scenes; and fancies' weird work has filled the place with castles, and gardens, and a popula tion strange, beautiful, and fantastic. "And I Bit and think when the E-nnaefB gold Is flushing river, and hill, and shore; I shall sometime sit hy the water cold, And list to the sound of the boatman's oar; I shall watch for the gleam of the flashing sail ; I shall hear the boat as it gains the strand ; I shall pass from sirht the boatman pale To the better shore of the spirit land. I shall know the loved who have gone before ; Anu ioyfully sweet will that meeting be ; When over the river, the beautitul river, T he angel of death shall Cirry me." N.

The Repcblica-v has no support from National, State, County or town-sources, and its existence depends entirety upon the energy and industry of the publisher, and the favor it may gain by its merits. Biver Bank Correspondent. RivEK Ease, Ixd., ?.ay 18, '72. Mr. Editor: While the rain is gently descending, and makes it rather disagree able to perform out door labor, as us far mers generally are thus engaged in this busy season ot the year, I take this ad vantage to let you know that I am not quite overcome with excessive heat nor indomitable cold that has caused my long silence; but with others of my profession have been very busy preparing the ground for our summer crops, and depositing I herein the precious seeds, in bright hopes that t hey may bring much fruit in con sideration of our labors. The tretiend occupation f the farmers in this vkini-i ty for the last few days has been corn plaining. During the early purt of fprinir, some genius succeeded in distributing among some of our farmers some kind of a structure by him called a "corn planter," which, upon trial, proved ineJHcieut tor the purpose; consequently they e;c lain in t he shade and the "good old way" resumed.

The whole structure is ele vated to the height of ten feet, and mount ed on the roof is an elaoorately carved fence board upon which in hieroglyphics that Greeley would be ashamed of, is whitewashed the name of the city. The traveler can, by the aid of a Greek and Latin lexicon, if he happens to be supplied with one, decipher the appella tion. If not, by the help of the natives he is able to translate the signboard as follows: "Eagle Lake City Post Office." He is then doubly assured that this is his point of destination, and after "doing" the the city, the traveler is ready for another tour. More anon. Countryman "Walnut Slabs. BY WALXTJT CHIP "VTalkt-t Station, May 20, '72. Our farmers are nearly through corn planting. Good health is prevailing to an alarm ing extent, (so say the doctors) in this vicinity. Mr. McClure, of Argos, was taken vio lently ill near this place on Thursday of last week, and becoming delirious, es caped from doctor Shatto and ran a dis tance of over a mile before sufficient as sistance could be summoned' to arrest his .progress. A messenger being dispatched to Argos, soon returned with a number of Mr.'McClure's red brothers, who paid him all necessary attention, and conduct ed him home. Accept our thanks Mr. "Brimstone," our town is certainly a very chaste and unusually quiet place, else why do we have so many visitors from Brimstone region? But, Brimstone, you are mis taken about that "long eared'anitnule," he is not a resident of this place. We thought he ought to reside very near briuistone. hence, naturally concluded that he was a native of Argos.

The Democrats having no hope of suc ceeding in electing a candidate for the Presidency, have given up their entire time to the meddlesome work of creating ill feeling among the Republicans. They tried hard to bring Colfax out in opposi tion to Grant that did not succeed; but not fir want of persistent effort. Then tiuy turned their attention to the en couragement of Carl Schurz in his effort to "beat Grant ;" but things have turned out so differently from what the expect ed, that they are likely to react and give them more trouble than they will the Re publicans; Voorhees is already read out of the party, for his open opposition to the Cincinnati nominees. Ele has a per fect light to oppose Greeley in private they all do that but when they speak loud enough for Republicans to hear them, they must appear to be in favor of Gree ley until after the Democratic Conven tion. Their latest attempt to set Republicans by the cars, was a report that Senator Morton was secretly working to defeat Grant, and secure the nomination for the Presidency for himself. The lie was ex tensively published and will perhaps be kept going the rounds until after the Re publican National Convention, notwith? standing the fact that Morton promptly and emphatically denied it, and declared that he would under no circumstances be a candidate and that he was for Grant. In this county where the Democrats have had everything their own way, and run the taxes up higher than in any other county in the State, they don't talk much about electing Liberal Republicans for state or county offices. In St. Joseph county the Democrats have almost forgot ten that they ever were anything but Lib eral Republicans. Democrats in Marshall county who have held office ever since they have been in the county, and have raisad respectable families at the expense of the people, think that fouryearsislongenough for one Administration to be in power. They say that men become corrupt when retained too long in office they "know how it is , themselves."
