The Philadelphia Age ssys : "A maiden
speech was once a mere figure of speech,
for the first effort of a youDg lawyer or a
new Congressman. Bat now it has become
a reality, and the fair sex perplex courts
and startle audiences with their 'maiden
efforts.' " The Sonth is not blest with that
sort of thing yet. Tha North, with Ub
higher civilization, is still ahead of us.
Col. Frederick A. Conkiing, of New
York, long a distinguished representative of
tha Eepublican party in Congress and else
where a brother of Senator Conkiing, of
New York, hut a very different man now
takes this view of public affairs, in a letter
dated July2:
"Absence from ths country during the
last year precluded my taking part in the
Presidential canvass. But my sympathies
were unreservedly with the men who
sought to restore fraternal harmony be
(Yf&u tha two sections of our common
country, and to arrest ths tide of corrup
tion which is engulfing the land.
"Unhappily we have reached a crisis in
our pub.ic affairs where any reference to
purity of official administration is treated
by those in power with ribaldry and con
tempt. ub,!ic crimes of the highest ir famy
Jjave almost ceased to cU forth censure, or
eeen to excito attention. Within a twelve
month, we have witnessed the disclo
sure of a gigantic fraud by which the
people have been swindled out of
an immense domain and an immense sum
of money. The leaders of the dominant 1
party in Congress having been detected
in doing the work of a private corporation
as its- bribed " instruments, have not
jjcruplecl to cover themselves witb perjury
as with a garment; yet their returns
to their hoines was deemed a fit occasion
for according to more than one of
tbera the honors of a civic triumph. W aiv
ng the appropriation of back pay by tho
list Congress as a conipirative trille, and
the frauds of the Republican Whisky Ring
by which the public treasury has beeu
robbed of mere than $500,000,00? , I be
1 eve I haztrd nothing in affirming,
tbat of all the vast land grants to rail
roads and other monopolies which have
been made by Congress dnriDg the last
tweive years, scarcely one can bo named in
which members of both tho Senate and
House of Representatives were not in some
way sharers of tho proceeds. All this ven
ality hardly excites a remark, yet tho very
fpundatlons of our Government aad of so
ciety are honeycombed and undermiuded by
these enormities.
"But a few months ago we witnessed the
disgraceful spectacle of the offlceholde.-s and
representatives of the national administra
tion lobbying at Albany for the enact
ment of a charter for our devoted
city, concocted by themselves to defraud
the people of the benefits expected
from the reform movement, anu to con
centrate the functions of the municipal
Government in their own hads.
It is cisy to impute this calamitous state of
affair3 to tha Republican parly on the
ground that tho President, Congressional
and majority of the State elections since
1S00 have bsen carried by that organi
zation. Nor would I extenuate its of
fences. I ask for it on'y trkat candor

Simon Cameron and Jim Nye, Zacb
Chandler' and S. C. Fomeroy, to
aay nothing of Ctldwcll, Clayton, the two
Pattersons and others too numerous to
mention. I must, in deference to the
truth of history, declare that tho political
alliance led by these men is no longer the
Republican party, but alw.gue of tho worst
aietienlaoi" socio ly, operating for personal
ands, and stealing any name and livcy
which msy enable them to obtain an ad
vantage." MAJ. AIRMAN'S MISroltTUNE.
Is is with great sorrow we chronicle the
recent misforiuno of our esteemed friend,
Maj. Allnian, of Coruerevillc. No man in
Tennefcee has labored rnoro z;alous!y to
introduce aud propagate the thoroughbred;
no man has boun so untiring in his endeav
ors to foster and encourage a spirit of emu
lation among stock breeders, and to culti
vate a refined and el.vatc I taste in farmiDg
generally. Yet it setms that some devil iu
canjatr, some fiend unknown, h.is en
d avorcd to thwart Irs good purposes,
Vo beggar him and his children, aud to
stop the breed of his fiuo stock.
On Saturdty evening, 21st ult., Major All
man fed his stock in perron and lound
them all right; on Sunday he weut to
church, according to his well-knosn
habit, but returned in the afternoon to find
that an enemy had visiied his premises.

son will lose their eyes. Thus tho fiend,
for what reason Maj. Allmaa is entirely ig
norant, resorted to a mean and cowardly
attack upon poor dumb brutes to injuie
their owner. Words are too poor to paint
the deep and damning blackness of tha
heart that would perpetraie such a crime.

certain Federal officers in that Stste for
corrupt disposal of patronage, but havo
mado no formal application for the removal

Mayor Brackett, while in court yester

watched. He feels determined to see the
affajr through. Lord Gordon is freely
using his money, his friends having re

prevent rebutting testimony being given.
Only one or two witnesses were-esamined

was due to carelessness of her officers and

engulphod. j An ocean Captain a passenger,
frequently warned tho chief offiier that he
was running too far northward, and advised
running a hundred miles further south, but
the advice was disregarded though the sec
ond officer coincided in it. No sight was
taken for seven days, notwithstanding the
vessel was going through a heavy fog at the
rata of 12 or 13 knots and hour. Had she
struck at night, she wonld havo gone down,
or had she gone to the righl or left two
hundred yards she would have struck either
Green Island or the reefs, and
A Fearful toss of I.lfo

at half past one p. m. Saturday, the ship
went full speed on Gull Rock Shoal. She

tremor ran through her. No one had the
smallest idea whero tho ship was. After
the lapse of half an hour thcrp was
Terrible Confusion,
tho cannon firing, fog-horn blowing, aud
women and children shrieking. A sailor
cried, "I hear a human yoico." A death
like silence followed, and soon two brave
men, Cornelius Swanburg and William
Ferguson, who had put out from tho shore,
in a small boat, climbed up the side of the
ship. The latter had risen from a sick bed.
Tho work of disembarking immediately
commenced under their guidance withthree
ship's boats, th6 second officer standing

any man who tried to get into tho boats be
fore the women. Meanwhile tho bumping
and scraping of the stern-post and rudder
continued, arousing fears lest the ship
would break in two. The steerage pas

quiet, and no attempt to rush was made.

an affirmative reply, she wrapped an Ulster
csat around her, cava him & kis$, and de
scended to a small boat at onco. All on
shore, Gerrnan and Fins gathered in one
group, and the Irish emigrants In another.
All tho neighboring barns and out-houses
wero soon occupied, the adjoiniug fences
soon stripped of rails, fires built, biscr.it dis
tributed, coffesarved,and all were happy un
der a sense of great danger escaped. Cabin
ladies were received into the houses
of a Mrs. Harding and Mrs. Lewis, who.
with their daughters, cared for them like
Bllnlsterlng Angels.
Soon many pj the poor emigrants were
fast asleen lying abont in barns, on the beech,
and under banks and big rocks. Col. Par-
ueii,oi lue unite i sutes .army, was very
prominent in offering assistance to tho lat
ter, and conducting them to places of shel
ter. The ship doctor wa3 also very efficient
in erecting tents, distributing cordials, etc.
Tha oabln passengers raised a subscription
of $200 for the heroes
Swanburg and Pergnsou,
and mora will probably be forthcoming.
Stores, blankets, beef, buiscuit, etc., were
landed all day Sunday and Monday from
the ship. On Monday the ship was found
to lie in fifteen feet of water, apparently as
solid as tho rock sl'6 rested on. Had she
backed off on first striking, she would prob

Ten minutes after striking, she began to
fill, and on Monday bad 15 feet of water in

were p!eny of provfsions for all for some
days to come.

A correspondent of the Washington
Chronicle writes from Mount Vernon:
"It is said that Mrs. Washington, after
tlin death of her husband, closed up her
room and occupied the one immediately
above, that she might moro plainly see the
tnmh where her beloved was sleeplnc, and
where sho ioined him two years Ister. It
Is not generally known that this old tomb
was broken into about forty years ago, and
a sknll stolen from it, which wa3 subse-.
mientlv exhited by the scoundrel in New
York aa the skull of Washington. Ho was
soon arrested, of course, and the skull re
turned to the tomo. it was not, However,
tha skull which had contained the brain that
had directed our armies In tha dark hours
of the Revolution, and which in peace had
made permanent the blessings secured. On
examicg ms conn me irame was iounu in
tact. It was removed, with Mrs. Wash
ington's, soon after, under a resolution of
Congress, to the on8 it now occupies.
In a recent case of assault with intent to
kill in Indiana, It was shown that the affray
came about from the isthcr insisting on re
malning in the room with his daughter and
her beau. The jury cleared the young man,
knowme that nothing could be more vexa
tious than for a fellow to sit up Snnday
night with a handsome gial and her old dad
at once.

.1. W. Newman writes" to the Herald
nf TTmlth as follows:
Pnnefiminsr bathing of the body, I thiok
nnr sanitarians are yery extravagant, and
they have done great public mischief by
setting the great towns to plunder tho
ricp.rs of their supplies from the head
streams. Even tho Prophet Mohammed, a
fanatic of cleanliness, regarded friction
with sand as compensatory for washing.
if nnv ono supposes that tho limb3 and
trunk of the body cannot be kept as per
fectly clean by dry rubbing as by any
amount of washing, I S3y ho has some
thins to learn.
Undoubtedly, in a hot climate or hot
weather there is nothing so pleasant and so
rapidly effectual a3 batbing, if tna lempeia
ture of the water Is not too low, as It is apt
to ba with us even in our hottest weather.
T hava always enioved swimminjr, but re
luctantly give It up because tha cold make3
my bands dead, wmc 1 cannon oe neaunuu
I onco broucht on a severe attack of Hlnes!
by using a sitz bath. All the hardy barba
rians of the North havo at all times been re
preached by Southern people for their neg
lect in washing. The old ltoman3 did not,
as a nation, betake themselves to baths till
tho era of effeminacy sat in. Tacitus say3
of the Germans: "In the in dst cf this dirt
they grow up.into those limbs which we ad
mire." The Scythians of Herodotus were
reported not to wash, but 'in cold weather,
st distant intervals, to cover their bodies
with a hot. snlov paste.
It dried on them, and dropped off when
cold, leaving the llesh clean. JNortnern
races know tha: cold water takes strength
out of them. 2nd they do not volunteer to
touch it. Their practice has more weight
with ma thau recent theories. JSo aoutr.
where hot baths, warm dressing-room, and
luxurious towels can bo commanded,
warm bathing tends to human beauty.
PerhaDS it makes a more delicate
animal susceptible to cold. I think it does.
A hot air-bath is a very different thing, and
more akin to the Scythian practice. But
granting that wealth may advantageously
avail itseli of warm vater, with a cold
shower-bath after it, does that justify a uni
versa! command to men and women, rich
and poor, to wash'thelr whole bodies every
day in cold water, as many of our sanita
ries do?

all these habits and commenced to be a
rooster. She dropped the cackle and com

and red and lier tail sprouted a magnificent
suit of drooping variegated feathers, and
she now goes thiough the whole routine of
business that roosters generally attend to.

The Pulaski Citizen says: A Pulaski
lawyer rusticated in Lawrence during tha
cholera scare, and while there spent his
time in angling. Ono day a friend came
across him quietly sitting upon tho bank of
one of the beautiful streams kthat meander
through the county, his pole firmly wed
ged under a rock and his eye fixed on the
cork. Tho usual questions elicited the facta
that he had been fishing there three hours,
hadn't got a bite, and that ho baited with a
frog. The friend sat down to talk and help
watch, and during tha time noticed a chunk
sticking out of tho water and a frog quitet
ly sbnning liimself on it. "Did you say
you were fishing T?ith a frog?" "Yes; and
it's poYerful poor bait, or there's mighty
few fish here." "Well, yonder's your frog
on that chunk." The lawyer raised his
pole, and sure enough the frog fell from tho
chunk and camo to the bank with the book.
One of the most remarkable exploits of
modern geographical research was recently
recounted by its performer before the Rojil
Geographical Society. In 1872 2Tey Elias, a
distinguished English traveller, started from
Pekiu westward to cross the great desert of
Gobi, aud in honor of bis splendid march of
two thousand miles to Western Mongolia
and his survey, which ho accomplished un
aided, ha has just received tha Founder's
Gold Medal of the Itoyal Geographical So
ciety. His total journey from Pekin, China,
to St. Petersburg, across tho heart of Asia,
is probably the longest land journey on re
cord, and one of the most Interesting to
geographers. While his astronomical ob
servations for latitude and longitude fur
n:Bh, for the first time, the data necessary
to lay down the geography of Central Asia
on a mathematical basis, his other explora
tions enable us to form a clear ide. of physi
cal structure and interior characteristics of
ths great Continent.
Thebk is a girl at 'Marietta, Georgia, who
extorted a confession from her lover that
he was worth tut one hundred dollars and
some clotbig, and was too poor to marry.
Now tb's cruel creature looked searchlngly
into his face and said: "And is this tho
reason you have postponed so often our
marriage?" "Yes," he replied. "Then,'
she said, "it shall bo so no longer wo will
get married." And the poor young rnirtyr
was cut off in the prime of youth and single
blessedness. Thus are the weak oppressed
and the cruel made strong.
