S^A-TJJfiDAY KVEalNG, JTJLY 3. (Wouldn't Bhibe Him?A ragged, forloro looking uoy was s>trolliug arouDd the depot yes-1 terday, s-m .kiDt: the stub.of a cigar, when a philanthropist in waiting for a train handed out icn cents aud remark d : " lake it, bub; I feel sorry for y >u." '\No yer don't," exclaim.-d the b y, drawing baek> J l J .. "Why, it's a free gift?I don't ask anything for it," replied the tuan. "I know you," continued the boy, bis eyes twit.kiirig; "you waut me to promise to irrow up and become President, aud I ain't going to tie myself up for auy man's teu cento!" When the terrible earthquake that recently desiroyed Sao J.?se de Cuouu, in Columbia, began most of the inhabitants went down upon tin r knees and prayed for relief and mercy. Yet, iu the midst of the >cene, when the earth was heaving, buildings failing, aud the dying groans aud shrieks of men, women aod children filing the air, a wild horde of demoniacal thi*;v?s and robbers swarmed into the towns, sacking houses, piilaging bank vaults, and plundering the dead, and eveD murdering. If an earthquake will not quicken a man's con science, there is no telling what will. The reports from the cotton regions are cheering The crops are flourishing as they have not before or since the war; the freedme'n are wot king well, better thao since the war; better than ever before. Lot the South but have a few years of peace, a few years of freedom from bayonet rule, a few years of >ueh crops as promises to be, and it will show the world that there is life in the old land yet.
