E. C. P. A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. , One hundred years ago there was not a single white man in Ohio, Kentucky, Ind., or Illinois territories. Then, what is now the most flourishing part of America, was as little known as the mountains of the moon. . Itwasnotuntill769thatthehun ter of Kentucky, the gallant snd adventu rous Boone, left his home in North Caro lina to become the first settler of Kentucky. The first pioneer of Ohio did not settle till twenty years afterwards. A hundred years ago the great Freder ick of Prussia was performing those ex ploits which have made him immortal in military annals, and with his little monar chy was sustaining a sinle-handed contest with Russia, Austria and France, the three great powers of Europe combined. . .A hundred years ago the United States were the most loyal people of the British Empire, and on the political horizon no speck indicated the struggle which, a score of years thereafter, established the great republic ot the world. A. hundred years ago there were but four newspapers in America with a com bined circulation ' not exceeding 2,000.- Steams engines and cylinder presses has not been immagined, and railroads and telegraphs had not entered the remotest conception of man. ' , When we come to look back at it through the vista of history, we find that the cen tury which has passed has been allotted to more important events in their bearing up on the hapiness of the world, than almost any other event that has happened since the creation. A hundred years hence, who can fore tell our developments and national great ness? A DANGEROUS TOY. At a recent meeting of medical men in Edinburg some statements were made in regard to a toy. for children, which has lately come into fashion, that are worth the careful consideration of parents who are tempted to purchase them for lheir children. . It was asserted that the chem ical toy, called "Pharaoh's Serpent," is composed of a highly dangerous and poi sonous sfc&stance, called the sulpko cyan ide of mercury. Experiments have shown that one half of a sixpenny Pharaoh s ser pent is sufficient to poison a large sized rabit in an hour and three quarters. A less dose also destroys life, but takes lon ger to so. The toy, therefore, is much too deadly to be regarded as merely amusing; and seeing that it can be purchased by ev ery school-boy, and be brought home to the nursery, st is rather alarming to think that there is enough of poison in one of -the serpents to destroy the life of several children ; and the more so that the so-called Pharaoh's serpent is covered with bright tin foil, and much resembles in outward appearance a piece of chocolote or a comnt. . ii cenainiy is an anomaly in the law of the kingdom that a grain of arsenic can not be purchased except under .... - ..i. proper restnctious, ana mat sucn articles as Pharaoh's serpents, containing as dead ly a poison, may be sold in any quantity, and be purchased by any school-boy or child. ... i - A PHILOSOPHIC NEGRO. Who can read the following, and ques tion whether negroes have the power of reasoning ? We copy from a correspondent of the Cincinnati "Commercial "travelling in Georgia. He there came across an aged negro, called "Old Ben," of whom he relates this incident. Old Ben brought us a watermelon ; and, while we were eating, the old chattel start ed its master by a sudden aggressive move ment of intellectual machinery. "Massa William ! (addressing his mas ter), "da's one ting: if the slaves gwme to be free, what's gwine to bekum o' de ole folks?" "What do you think should be done, Ben J" said I interposingly. "Itinkyou, Massa William, ought to take care of 'em."' "But," said his master, "why should I do that when you are free ?" " Cause I done worked for you,' massa, all ray life. You got my labor ; when I can't work no more, you have got to take keer o me. "Well, but that labor of yours, Ben, I haven' got now ; it's all spent if the slaves are freeif! I -i, j A . ". "' -Can't helpdat, massa; dat not my business. You has had de work ; I haint had it" Now what am I gwine to do if you don't take keer ob me ? Ef I'd bin al lowed to keep my own labor, I would now hab enuf. Dat's so, massa I" "Well, but suppose I have not anything to support yon with, Ben !" : "You got de land, massa. You jis gib me de use ob a little patch o' land, I take keer ob myself ; "you needn't feed mo". BREVITIES. lhe Mississippi River is frozen over at Dubuque, and teams are crossing on the ice. . Oregon has ratified the Constitutional Amendment abolishing slavery. - Twenty nine States have now ratified it . . Why is a lead-pencil like pure human nature ? Because it never does right of ltselt It is funny to see a young lady with both hands in soft dough and a mosquito on the end of her nose. It is said that no body welcomed Gen. Grant in his recent visit to the South ex cept the negroes. Jat Cook, the immortal Seven-thirty financier, is urging a plan for the resump tion of specie payments in January, 1867. Tbe disloyal citizens of New Orleans are raising a fund to build a monument to the rebel General Butler hung for tearing down the flag;. If you make a thins perfectly nbu'n and simple to a man he will give you no credit he will think he knew it before. Rev. Win. Boynton. ConfTrentinnalwf of Cincinnati, is the newly elected Chap lain to the House of Representatives, Wash ington. Mr. Kelleyvof Penn.. has introdnrwl a bill into . Congress, for the extension of the elective franchise in the District of Columbia. . It may be said, in view of tlm manv thousand Federal soldiers who died at An dersonville, that the rebel pen was miThk ier than the rebel sword in the business rf destroying enemies. Paddy's description of a fiddle: "It was the shape of a turkey and the size of a goose ; he turned it over on its belly and rubbed its back-bone with a stick, and oeh by Lt Patrick how it did souale I" Another Aoams from Quincy. Masr Quincy has just elected to the Massachu setts House of Representatives. Job n Qm'n- ey Adams, who is the fourth of the gener ation of Adams distinguished in public me. A good story is told of a Methodist! 't whose house an itinerant preacher was mass ing the night, who, when bed-time came and family prayers were suggested, in searching for a Bible? finally produced a couple of torn leaves of the rood Book. with the naive remark, "I didn't know I was so near out of Bibles." Mrs. Walling, a Texan, who with her three children escaped from the State through innumerable perils, has a very clear conception of some historical facts. In a late description of her suflerings she casually remarked, "I look upon a rebel as a courageous copperhead; but I look upon a copperhead as a cowardly rcbeL Cljcan topr Treks. Whenever the weather is mild and moist in the winter, all fruit trees will be benefitted by wash ing their bodies in a mixture of strong icy, bwi, uu uour oi suipner. Make the mixture of about the thickness of cream, ana put it on with a large paint brush, or a common wnuewasn brush. A shrewd preacher, after an eloquent cuaniy sermon, saia to his hearers : "1 am afraid, from tne sympathy displayed in your countenances, mat some of you may give ioo mucn. i caution you, therefore, tnat you should be just before you are generous; and wish you to understand that I desire no one who can not pay his debts to put anything in the plate." The conecuon was a rare one. Ex-Senator Nicholson, of Columbia Tenn., formerly Andrew Johnson's col league in the United States Senate, recent ly declared, that "to repel a freeman from the ballot-box simply because he was once a slave, or because his skin is black, would be to follow a blind prejudice ;" and that negroes "who possess reasonable qualifica tions should be admitted to the ballot-box." The Fenian dissensions remain about the same as previously reported each party daily in receipt of letters or reports . . .... of the proceedings of Circles, indorsing its peculiar course. President Stephens is expected to arrive in this country very soon. The Fenian Senate was not in ses sion yesterday, but will probably resume its sittings on Monday. Gov. Pickens, who introduced into the late South-Carolina Convention the resolution declaring slavery abolished, in a speech to the Uharlestomans in 1881, said, "We have humbled the American flag; and, as long as I have the honor to preside as your Chief Magistrate, so help me uoa i no power on earth shall ever lower from that fortress those flags, unless they are- lowered and trailed in a sea of blood. A romantic story has recently been published the "Love Life" of Dr Kane. It seems that he was secretly married to a Miss Margaret fox ; but the social position of the lady being inferior to that of his own family, the marriage was not publicly reco'jnized. At his death Dr. Kane left money in trust for the support of his wife; but his relatives have withheld it from her, and bronght her character into question. This "Love Life" seems to have been published for the purpose, in part, of vin dicating her character. A singular donation was"recently re ceived by the Free Colored Grammar School of the District of Columbia, at Washington. It was a gift of upward of three thousand dollars from the mission Sabbath School at Aintab, in Syria. Aintab is about seventy miles from Aleppo and the population consists of. Turks, Greeks, and American Christiana. A let ter accompanied . the gift, containing a most hearty congratulation upon the suc cessful termination of our national difficul ties, and an especial expression of rejoicing at the result achieved in the liberation of the negro race. Journal. "Auntie," said a four-year-old Alice, whose little head was full of Christmas, "I want to write a letter to Santa Claus or will you write it ior me i "Auntie took her pen and wrote vtrfHitim at the ii i a . a . M child's dictation : "Dear Santa Clais, I wish you wo'd get me a little dolly, turning around, if that belongs to Christmas ; and a candy cane, if that belongs to Christmas. If it don't, I don't want it. And au apron for my doll, if Christmas brings aprons. If it don't, I don't want any. That is all I want . Alice." "Now send it to the postoflice," said she. Santa Claus will be pretty sure to an swer that letter, we think. DIRECT VOTE FOR PRESIDENT. Mr. Jenckes of -R.'

' NEED OF THE SOUTH. The South has vast material resources, but is destitute of skill and interested la bor. She will remain poor until, by edu cation and remunerative wages, she inter-' ests her laborers in her development An educated working-man will do as' much work as a dozen ignorant men. Massa chusetts, with her small amount of skilled laborers, gets as many days' work done as the whole South did out of her unedu cated slaves before the war. Naturally Virginia is the richest State in the Union; save Missouri, really she ia one of the poorest The difference between what God has done for her and what she has done for herself, is the difference between educated and uneducated labor. The South needs skillful and interested labor, and her hostility towards the freed man, her refusal to pay him remunerative wages, her denial to him of education and political rights is the spiteful expression of a spirit which 'gratifies its preiudicea at the expense of its pocket It is another method of biting off the nose to spite the face. Let the South eet sober, cease cursing the freedmen, and obey the laws ot political economy. I hen she will send her laborers and their children to school, will give them an equal chance in life, will pay them fair wages for fair work, and will thus obtain skillful, economical and diHigent laborers, who will enable her suc cessfully to compete with any section of me union. Lmstian Hatcnman. JAMES WATT'S WORKSHOP. An Edinburg gentleman attending the British Association at Birmingham, thus described a visit to the house of the famous discoverer of the steam engine : "A friend of mine, Mr. . Kves in James Watt's house. We were admitted into his workroom a garret at the top of the house. It appears he had a scolding wife who did not like the messes and the noise he made, so he was sent to the attic The room is exactly as Watt left it .The very ashes are still in the grate; ' his little lathe has a bit of work in it ; tools lie about ; drawing and books are in old drawers and strewed here and there. It is a miserable little place. Only four of us could get in at one time. In fact, the daughter of the house who went with us, had to tuck her self np in all manner of shapes in order to !revent her crinoline from sweeping aU the etters in the corner. The house is a very good one, and Watt was rich when he died there ; but it is clear his wife kept him and his little work room in the background. The room has only been recently opened. By the will of Watt's son it was ordered to be left forever as the old man left it when he last went out at its door. It was not looked into for more than thirty years." Mistakes Ioentitt. Richard Brinsley Sheridan was once before a police magis trate for drunkenness and disturbing the peace. "What is your name ?" asked the recorder. - "William - Wilberforce." hic coughed Sheridan. ? The reconstructed copperheads " are again arraigned before the people. . "You are the old democratic party ar'n't vou P . .. . j impending justice inquires. "No," say they, with rare impudenc, "the adminis tration party." Lord Tenterden had contracted so in veterate a habit of keeping himself and everybody else to the precise matter in hand, that once during a circuit dinner, having asked a country magistrate if he would take venison, and receiving what he deemed an evasive reply : "Thank you, my lord, I am going to take boiled chicken," hi3 lordship immediately replied : "That, sir, is no answer to my question ; . I ask you again if you will take some venison, and I will trouble you to say, yes or no. without further prevarication." : . t ' ' ' Mr. Morrill also introduced a bill into the Senate repealing all laws in force in the District of Columbia which make any distinction in regard to color, and prohib iting the authorities of Washington and Georgetown and the Levy Conrt of the county of Washington from enacting in fu ture any law or ordinance that shall not affect alike all persons of whatever race or color. , The 2d section takes similar action respecting the several territories of the United States; any officer violating such provision is liable to a fine of $500 and im prisonment for not less than six months nor more than twelve. ........ Governor Orr, of South Carolina, in his' inaugural, acknowledges that slavery was the real foundation of the war, and that the institution has perished; that the State Rights theory has been overthrown ; ap proves of the President's reconstruction policy; thinks that the vital interests of the State solely depend on the legislation in regard to freedmen ; says that they must be allowed to testify in court in all cases where their rights of person and property are concerned, and expresses the hope that as soon as the public debt is provided for, Congress will make some compensation for the slaves manumitted by the United States authorities. .. Coi'STT TaEASiav Bobbed. The old safe ia the County Treasurer's office was broken into on Tuesday night last and about two hundred dol lars in postal currency and lifly dollars in cents were abstracted. The burglars cut around the lock and removed it, probably thinking that it could be done with Joss noise tbart by blowing it out with powder. The tools used, a cold chisel and a sledge, were left where the work was done the former was new and the latter was got at -the blacksmith of Mr. Erra Routsoo. The safe broken open is not the one in which the eonnty money ia kept, except for purposes of making change, otherwise the loss would have been much greater. No clue has been found to the burglars, and it is supposed that they are part of the band that has been committing similar depredations, ia surrounding towns. Hancock Jfjfertonian,
