ttO IT, WHILE YOUR YOUNG.
BT X. 8.
Let wise eld women rant aad rail,
fJainst fan and joy and mirth,
And canting bypeerites bewail
*"Tha wkUcodnoas of earth."
Tie beat, aaj dear, to laugh and stag,
And about with joyous tongue
To frisk like lambkins in tha spring,
And "go it while your young."
While joyous jouth ate blessing •beds,
King Frolic you should serve
Leave trouble unto alder heads,
And "go in on your nerve/'
Through pleasure's amass trip the too,
Till every change be rung.
Nor borrow care, nor borrow woe,
But 'go it while your young."
And when in years jou have grown old,
And near the close of life,
Blest with rich stores of yellow gold
Some rich old Deacon's wife
You'll feel when you think on the past
flow truly I have sung.
'Tis best tosport while life does last,
To go it while your young."
Forsaken by his fellow-men
Alone in this cold world,
la many an one who would do right,
Did he not feel the chilling blight,
Envelop him, like blackest night—
Of insults hurled
And proud lips curled,
As he would ask a hand to help.
Only a hand to help his own
To save him ere too late—
But not an one could there be found,
Though many would be glad to wound,
Ay, to his sins still keep him bound,
And cruel fete
Would soon o'ertake,
And carry him to ruin at last.
Aad such is life where'er we go
This feeling is the same,—
To keep him down who once has fell
To keephim crashed and then to tell
Bow much they loved him, as the knell
Of death and shame
Rings out his name
With deeds of which we boar the blame.
Father in Heaven will ever come
That hour foretold by thee
When every wrong thing shall be right?
When brightest day shall know no night
When shall prevail with glorious light?
Oe'r land and sea
Where'er they be,
To all thy children love like thee
ANOTHER NIGGER EXCITEMENT.
The Minnttotianand Tim* of Feb. 29th
contained an article to the following effect:
"while are acorn those resolutions Robert,

they are always welcome to visit us,
aad to bring their servants with them. No
one will ever molest them. They will find
thai all politeness, goodbreeding and cour

the St. Anthony Express. It will serve
show how they keep their promises
We had hoped that the mean and dis
graceful treatment which Mrs. Prince was
not long sinessubjected to in St. Paul would
never find a counterpart in Minnesota so
long aa she remained in the sisterhood of
States. But although it puts us to shame
to say it, not only has this counterpart been
found already, but the insult has been even
more daring and flagrant. The bote in
cese are these.
Some time ago, CoL Bichard Chrismas, a
worthy and gentlemanly Miasissippian came
here with his familyfortha purpose of tem
porarily residing amongst us. He brought
with him an old, sickly, and almost superan
nuated servant woman, who although dig
!qualified on account of her health and age
com performing even the slightes kind of la
bor, was nevertheless, quite useful in attend
ing a sick child wheh the Col, brought with
him, but which died shortlr after his arrival.
While at the Window House, a Mrs. Bates,
under the name of a seamstress, although the
word spy would have suited her real charac
ter better, succeeded in getting into the
ily of Col. Dawson.who at the same time was
stopping at the Winslow, and while there
finding what she doubtles considered a good
subject in this sickly, infirm servant woman
shecommenced the work which hasjust been
ended so disgracefully to Hennepin county
and Minnesota. Col. Chrismas, shortly after
removed withhis family to the house of Mrs.
Thornton near Lake Harriet, and for a few
daya aha Was not molested. But this would
not do, so procuring the assistance of
wife of Mr. Grey the barber on this side,
the worthy couple started to enlist the sym
pathies of one W. D. Babbitt, an abolition
republican fanatic who lives somewhere back
of Minneapolis. Then commenced a regular
system ofespionage which would have done
credit to thadaya of the Tory Scouts of the
Revolution. Having secured an addition to
theirnumber of some half a dozen or such a
matter, they would take turns, some of
them go out one day as a fishing party
othera would go out in the character of hun
ters. Sometimes they would go in ctm-maiden
pony, sometimes singly, but all for
•ole and only purpose at ha* tinee leen
eonftnd of playing the spy around the dif
ferent families where the Southerners were
staying, and .particularly around the resi
dence of Mra. Thornton where Col. Chris-

maa and his family stopped and where this
old servant woman Eliaa Winston, was.
Matters remained in this way until Mon
day last, When Col. Chrismas and most of
thai family went to St. Paul. Thai day
therfore, the spies were bolder than usual,
and two of the women (not ladies) according
to tha story of some of the children, entered
the hack doorof the house closely veiled,
and it ia supposed this time got Eliza to
confess that she restrained of her liberty.—
•tall events, tha next day affidavits were
made by Mrs. Bates, the colored woman
and her apron string man Babbitt, to the
eheec that Eliaa Winston and* others were
restrained of their liberty, end writ was ac-Madame
cordingly issued by Judge Vanderburgh.—
In the meantime a score or so of pimps and
aateilttes of Mrs. Bates, Grey and Co., had
noised the matter around and as a result,
ities from two to a half dozen of theoombs
were seen wending their way out to
the Lake during the whole of ths fore part
of the day, and what seemed the most sin
gular ofall, nearly of them were armed and
oing hunting. In the afternoon, sheriff
itrout having procured the writ,
with thirty or fourty more of these rap
scallions, armed with rifles, shotguns, pistols
and other weapons, but with this additional
feature,they had fishing poles in their wagons
Not having the remotest idea that an affair
of thia kind was to take place the whole of
the male portion of the family were absent.
As soon as the sheriff arrived with his posse
the woods all around the house seemedbeen
almost instantly to swarm with armed men
and they came clustering in about the
house like a swarm of bees around a hive.—
Neither did they stand upon the order of
going, but trod down shrubbery, flowers,
vegetables and every thing else in their
way. Thefirstinquiry that was made was
Ann, a free negro girl In the service
of Gen. Freeman and she was acctually
compelled to show her free papers to avoid
beingcarried off by main force. They thrust
Mrs. Chrismas and the other female mem'
bers of the houaehould from side to side
and grossly insulted them with the rudest
and most ungentlemenly remarks, and one
the scamps actually laid hold on Mrs. Chris
mas, but a well directed slap in the face,
caused him to release her in short order.—
Eliza did not wish to go, and told her cap
tors so, and even tried once to escape from
them, but the sheriff and his mob insisted
upon taking her, willing or not willing.—
Seeing that all efforts were useless she con
sented to go, before she started Mrs. Cris
mas told her she waf at liberty "to go or
stay" just as she pleased, and if at anyableforturning
time if she desired then to return, she "wo'd
be kindly welcomed." She then presented
her with forty dollats in money, Eliza start
•1 in custody of the sheriff and his mob.
The farce ofa trial waa then gone through
with before Judge Vaudenburg, F. R. E.
Cornell, appearing as Babitt's aid-de-camp,
and Gen. Freeman as Counsel for Col. Christ
mas. Of course the trial wssa mere blind,
no one attempting todeny but that the wo
man, under our laws was at liberty to go
where she pleased. The
Christmas admitted withont hesitation that
the woman was not restrained from her lib
berty, and urged the Judge to discharge her
at once, and give her to understand she was
free to return or go with her new friends as
she might choose. This he argued the Judge
could do without leaving his office and thus
the unpleasantness of a public display of the
matter would be avoided. The learned Judge
however,forreasons best known to himself
insisted upon proceeding to the Court House
and he accordingly wont
The Col. knowing perfectly well what
the result would be, advanced to Eliza as he
entered the Court room and presenting her
with fifty dollars in addition to what Mrs.
Christmas had already given her said "Eliza
you may get tired of staying with these
folks and need this to get back to me again,"
The farce was then proceeded with, the pris
oner being placed in a chair with her back to
the wall with a white woman at her right
and left hand, and the colored woman, Gray
in front of her, while several spies of the
male gender stood scattered promiscuously
around and yet at the same time handily
near. Col. Christmas and his counsel sat
farther on the left. The prisoner of course
waa discharged, when the Colonel arose and
after giving the women around her a chance
to whisper to Eliza all they desired, asked
her simply if she was willing to return with
Eliza replied "I will go with you to
sea Christmas" but before she had fair
ly got the words out of her mouth the male
and female spies eageily and excited huddled
around her.saying, two or three at a time,
"you know what you promised us" "you
promised to go with us," and woids of a
similar character. In the mean time Col.
Christmas stood quietly by with folded arms
and when the hubbub had nearly subsided
he again asked her if she would go with him.
her reply was "I will come to morrow morn
ing" Col. Chrismas replied "That's enough"
"That's all I want" and walked out and
We never saw so much pure, unfeigned
indignation manifested by the citizens of our
townsas upon this occasion, and, if Col.
Chrismas would have allowed it, we have
not the least doubt but that seven-eighths
of those present would have assisted in re
lieving Messrs. Bates, Gray, Babbit and Co.,
from the care of the women, and restored her
to Col. Chrismas. This however, the Col.
would not listen to for a moment, so Bates,
Gray, Babbitt and Co., were permitted to
take Eliza out of the back door of the Court
House, where she was unceremoniously
into a buggy snd driven off while the
amiable and pioos King of the Atlas, upon
whose shoulders Babbitt in retiring had
transferred the mantle was yelling from the
steps in front of the Court House "G—d
d—n you come, kidnappers. Come on kid

subsided, the crowd dispersed and this sick

MINNESOTA AS IT IS IN 1860.
A well known gentlemen of this city has
in correspondence with a friend near
St. Louis, who has madeoverturesfora part
nership provided the Minnesota gentleman
will remove to Missouri. In his last letter
he speaks of the Superior advantages of Mis
souri, and ofthe "paupers and shin-plasters"
of Minnesota, calling forth thefollowingre-y
ply ia vindication of Minnesota, which we
commend to all croakers:
I received your two letters of recent date,
and in reply will first correct one or two er
rors. 2d. When Joseph was sold
into Egypt he was a "pauper." When the
famine and the failure of crops drove his
brethren into Egypt for corn, the boot wan

this year will pay all our debts, feed and
clothe us, and our granaries are overflowing
with 500,000 bushels for export.
Rumor says "there is famine in the .land
of our brethren." Kansas burnt up, Texas
burnt up, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and all
the Southern States suffering from partial
failure of crops. The prospect looks favor
the tables on those who
"sold" us with their three and five per cts.,
andforour becoming dispensers of bread to
those who taunt us with "pauperism."—
Moreover, a constant stream ofsettlers-farm

15000 at least—bringing horses, cattle, sheep
farming utensils, and some cash, Allow

My dear sir, the crisis of '58 ia the most
favorable event that ever happened to Min-make
nesota. It has made us a nation of produ
cers instead of consumers.
It baa shown us that the only true bank
ing system for a young State is agriculture,
and the only safe basis of prosperity—the
sweat of the brow.
The result is the golden harvest of 1860,
which will give an impetus to Minnesota im
migration this fall aad next year which no
other State will enjoy. No drouth has ever
visited us. And even lent year's
showed that we are already the best wheat
growing State in the Union, our wheat av
eraging over twenty-five bushels to the acre,
while the best of the older States only aver
age from 10,12 to 15 bushels. And this av
erage in ourcase, withpoor tillage, poor tools,
and little experience.
These errors being corrected I will ssy

me, as matters now stand, to leave this de

O W E S I N A A N
A private letter dated April 7, from Mr.
F. Hall of Elmira. N. Y., who is now in Ja
pan, has been published in the Daily Pres
of Elmira. We make an extract:
'The weather since the first of March has
bsen so wet thatj have not been able to take
many walks or horseback rides. The vege
under this moisture is pushing for
ward vigorously. Toucan have but little
idea of the beauty of these hills and valleys
covered with the young verdant crops. The
valleys are laid out in a succession of small
fields, separated by a walk of turf only. The
bills are pared down and shaped into aimi
lar garden-like patches. And these field
gardens, for that ia what their name signi
fle«, are made to follow the natural shape
of the hills. One wilt be along graceful
slope, another a terrace, another will be oval
or serpentine, all separated one from the oth
er by walks and banks and ridges of turf.—
This harmony of arrangement with the sur
face outline, gives an indescrible air ofrepose
and picturesque beauty. Then you seo the
thickest of undergrowth, belts of evergreen
oaks, forrests of pine and cryptomeria. The
latter is now in blossom. What shall I tell
you flatteringly of the cainelias, now in then
full glory? In yard, and wood, and hedge,
the fragrant crimson blossoms peering out
from the shining green leaves, make a gor
geous show. The American Consulate is on
a hill, and is surrounded with grove of ever
green oaks and camelia trees, and such a
prodigal display as there is there can be seen
no where out ofJapan. I can compare it to
nothing but an apple orchard of glistening
leaves, loaded with the brightest crimson ap
pies. A flight of stone steps leads from the
street up to the Consulate it is arched over
these gay trees, and its stones are carpe
ted with the fallen petals. In the grove you
may walk on a carpet of green and crimson
such as your foot never trod before. As 1
stand in the door, whichever way I turn my
eyes toward the hills, these leafy banners
are hung out, The wild blossoms are hung
A CHALLENGE.—Brooks, the editor of th,
Quincy Herald, is a game man, and is will

number of the Herald the following banter is
made by him:

the other half having been purchased ont

or other acceptable property that is paying

LINCOLN'S OPINION OF JEFFKR
Since Abraham Lincoln has been talked of
for President, we believe he has written a
to some Yankee Abolitionists extol
ling Thomas Jefferson, and claiming him
as the father and founder of the modern
Republican party. It seems, however, that
Mr. Lincoln entertained a very different
oppinion of Jefferson a few years ago. The
Macomb (Illinois) Eagle has had the un
kindness to rake up from old files a speech
made by Mr. Lincoln in 1844, in which he
thus spoke of the author of the Declaration
Mr. Jefferson Is a statesman whose
praises are never out of the mouths of the
Democratic party. Let us attend to this
uncompromising friend of freedom, wbose
name is continually invoked against the
Whig party. The character of Jefferson
was repulsive. Continually puline about
liberty, equality, and the degrading curse of
slavery, he brought his children to the ham
mer, and made money of his debaucheries.
Even at his death he did not manumit his
numerous offsprings, but left them, soul and
body, to degradation and the cart whip. A
daughter of this vaunted champion o( De-terest
mocracy, was sold some years ago at public
auction in New Orleans, and purchased by a
society of gentlemen who wished to testify
by her liberation, their admiration- of
"Dreamt of freedom in a slave's embrace.,'
This single line I have quoted gives more
insight to the character of the man than
whole volumes of panegyric. It will out
live his epitaph, write it who may.
And the man who uttered these senti
ments sixteen years ago would now have
the people believe that Jeffenmn was as
much of an Abolitions! as he himself is.

curred last week on onoof the cars of the

a lady, about thirty years of age. She was
good looking, and attracted much attention
from her air of melancholy. A sun burned,
but vary handsome gentleman entered the
car in which the lady in question was seat

each other than the lady swooned. On re

Academy his experience in tha matter.—
finding the little things torpid and un
willing to work, the idea struck him to stir
them up with electricity. The results, as
he gives them, are really marvelous. Ho
cook fifty three from a neighbor, put them
everyday upon a sheet iron plate, through
which a current of electricity was passed,
kept them there each time as long as they
couli stand it, and now has fifty three
beautiful cocoons, an amount which his

made a very valuable discovery.."
A FOOL'S WAGER.—A man in England
won a wager of £20 by smoking eleven
pounds of strong cigars within twelve hours.
The feat was accomplished on a steamboat
between London and Chelsea. The task
was begun at 10 A. M., and ended at 7 P.
M. In the course of nine hours and seren
ty minutes, seventy-two of the cigars were
fairly smoked out, the greatest number con
sumed being in the second hour, when the
•smoker disposed of no less than sixteen.
The smoker declared that he felt not the
slightest difficulty or unpleasntness through
out the nine hours and twenty minutes'
work, and calculates that if the match had
gone on to the end, he should have won bv
half an hour. The only refreshments taken
during the progress of "the match was oUly
a chop at 2 o'clock, the eating of which oc
cupied twenty minutes, and a gill and a
half of brandy in cold water, at intervals,
during the smoking. The betting when th©
match was first made was six and seven to
four against the smoker but after a public
trial at the White Bear, Piccadilly, when
the smoker consumed an enormous eight
penny cigar in three minutes, offers were
made to bet six to four against time.

AXD EATING.—A correspondent from Bel

formed, after, as he says, he had been read
ing some carious facta in the Clipper.—
Having purchased a bushel ofgreen peas in
the pod, he set about shelling them. At
the laps of twenty-eight minutes, he had

neat manner, and if he did not repose upon
his laurels, he certainly did upon his shells.

who demolished four dozen large sized

(fir One Father Kaldini of New Ycrk,
issued the following advertisement
"Any person subscribing one dollar for the
reliefof the suffering Christians of the Holy
Land will have three masses said for what,
ever intention they may desire such as for
the souls or for their own spiritual welfare."
The undersigned has received and read
with inexpressible the card which is here
herewith commuuicated. The person called
Kaldini is no doubt a regularly ordained
priest, who came to thia city, but without
any official recommendations which the
arch bishop could recognise. It is not the
orderof Christian or episcopal charity to de
nounce a stranger in the circumstances in
which this Kaldini baa thought proper to,
place himself. At the same time, justice
to religion, truth, charity and fair dealing
with mankind, require that the Archbishop
shouldsignifytothe whole people, Catholic
and Protestant, that this man, in view o£.
che disreputable card herewith published,
should be atigmatiaed as an impostor.
