GRENADA SENTINEL. [ W« tad in th* Home Journal th. aubjouind eiqui.it, poetical tribute to Spring ] THE ROXAL CA YALCADE. IT fEA*!. K1VXK4. tyring is cowing, Spring i* coming. Through the arch of pleasant days, With the harps of all hor minstrels Tuned to warble forth her praise. In her rosy ear of pleasure Drawn by nimble-footed Hours, With a royal guard of sunbeams And a host of white-plumed flowers. From the busy court of nature Rides the fair young queen in state, O'er the road of Perfect Weather, Leading down to Bummer Gate. forward, Raiu; Brave old March rides proudly With her heralds, Wind and He will plant her standard firmly On King Winter's bleak domain. Young Lord Zephyr fans her gently And Sir Dew-Drop's diamonds shi Lady May and Lady April By her Majeity recline. Lady April's face is tearful, And she pouts and frets the while But her lips will part with laughter Ere she rides another mile. inc ; Lady May is blushing deeply, As she flits her rosy gloves ; She is dreaming of the meeting With her wailing poet loves. Over meadow, hill and valley, Winds the royal cavalcade, And, behind, green'leave? are springing la the tracks the car wheels made. ]yr Majosty rides slowly Through the humble State i Speaking kindly to the jpe As they crowd to see her pass. And of Grass, asants In the corners of the fences, Hide the little Daisy spies, Peeping shyly through the bushes, Full of childish, glad surprise: And her gentle Maids of Honor, Modest Violets, are seen In their gala dresses waiting, By the roadside, for their Qdecn. By her own bright light of Beauty Does she travel through the day ; And at night her Glow-worm footmen With their lauters guido the way. She is coming, nearer! nearer ! Hark, the sound of chariot wheels! Fly to welcome her yonng minstrel, Sing the joy your spirit feels. Ilabolochitto, Miss. THE DEVIL VISITS WASHINGTON. Tbe Devil snt on bis sulphur throne, And heard with a bitter grin, Reports from tho planet he deemed bis own As his black suds brought them in. The Fenian scare in Great Britain pleased His cynical temper well; And the news from Brazil and Paraguay From Hayti, Peru and Sisal Bay, Not forgetting the late Chinese affray, Rather tickled tbe King of Hell.' But when his scouts of this "Happy Land" Delivered their dark report, The Demon waved in the smoke of his hand, _And gave a triumphant snort. ," he yelled, "is the best I've heard Since sin on earth began ; The work I favor goes brave'.y on, Tho 'Model Republic' is dead and gone, And the powers that govern at Washington Have adopted my patent plan." "This Then turning to Moloch, His Darkness said : "I'm off for the Ten Miles Square ; Rule thou, old boy in thy master's stead, While I see to business thero." Th® blackamoor carriers, one and and all, Applaud their chief like mad ; Ho he changed his shape, as the devil can, And up to earth on a fire streak ran, In outward seeming a Congressman, Of the lovely genius Rad. Of course Hi* Blackness was well reccivod, By bis troop of special friend®, Who laid before him the plans conceived, To compass their private ends. Thad Stevens, Sumner, and Old Ben Wado, Ned Stanton and Butler too; They told him of dodges, plots and schemes, Atrocities beyond his foulest dreams, Until he exclaimed: " For it seems There is nothing on earth to do.' So lie turned on his heel and went his way, A sadder, a wiser sprite, Observing: "A lesson I've learned to-day, That has changed my purpose quite. I meant to have nad these fellows^ souls, When from earthly bonds set freo; But I now prefer they should go it alone, In a separate private hell of their own, For I swear by my horns,^nd tail and throne, They're a little too much for mo." The Power of Goodness Once there was a good man whose name was John Kant. He lived at Cracow, in Poland, where he taught and preached. It was his rule to suf fer wrong rather than to do wrong to others. When he got to he quite old, ho was seized with a wish to see once more the home Of his childhood, which was many miles distant from where he now lived. So he got ready, and, haviDg prayed to God, set out on his way. Dressed in a black robe, with long gray hair and beard, ho rode slowly along. The woods through which he had to pass were thick and dark, but there was light in his soul, for good thoughts of God and God's works kept him company, and made the time seem short. One night, as he was thus riding along, he was all at once surrounded by men—some on horseback and some on fjot. Knives and swords flashed • in tbe light of the moon, and John Kant saw that he was at the mercy of a band of robbers. He got down from His horse, and said to the gang that he would give up to them ail that he had about him. Ho then gave them a purse filled with silver coins, a gold chain from his neck, a ring from bis finger, and from his pocket a book of prayer, with sil ver clasps. "Have robber eh you any more money/"' Tbe old man, in his conclusion, said ho had given them all the money he had, and when he sum this they let him go. Glad to get off so well he was soon out of sight. Bat all at once .bought came to biiu that be had jrou givon us #11?" cried the lef, in a stern voice ; "have ■ome,gold pieces stitched in the hern of his robe. These he had quite for gotten when the robber* had asked him if he had any more money. "This is lucky," thought John Kant, for ho saw that the money would bear him to his friends, and that he would not have to beg his way, or suffer for want of food or shel But John's conscience was a ten der one, and he stopped to listen to its voice. It seemed to cry to him in earnest tones, "Tell not a lioj not a lie 1" The words would not let him rest. Some men would say that such a promise, made to thieves, need not be kept; and few would have been trou bled after such an escape. But John did not stop to reason. He went back to the place where the robbers stood, and walking up to them said, meekly, "I have told you what is not true. I did not mean to do so, but fear confused me ; so par don me." With these words he held forth the gold pieces, but to his surprise, not one of the robbers would take them. Arrange feeling was at work in their hearts. These men, bad as they were.could not laugh at the pious old man. ''Thou shalt not steal!" said a voice within them. All were deeply moved. Then, as if touched by a common feeling, one of the robbers brought and gave back the old man'B purse; another, his book of prayer; and still another led his horse, and helped the old man to remount. Then all the robbers, as if quite ashamed of having thought of harm ing so good a man, went up andasked his blessing. John Kant gave it with devout feeling, and then rode on his way, thanking God for so strange an escape, and wondering at the mix ture of good and evil in the human heart. ter. Tell A Female (Gambling llell in Sew York. In Twenty-third street, near Madi son avenue, is a gambling hell pa tronised exclusively by females. It is a modest unpretentious looking house, the entrance scrupulously cloan and presenting no different apt pearancc externally, than those ad joining, save the blinds are tightly closed. Ringing the bell we are ad mitted by a gorgeously apparaled woman, who acts as janitress. On one side of the hall is a superb pniut ing of Leda and the Swan, on the op posite side is another pninting.cqually good, of Venus rising from the sea. Ascending the stairs we are ushered into the parlors on tho first floor. They are elegantly, even luxuriously furnished. The person who fitted up these rooms must have had exquisite taste. The paintings hanging on the walls are rare and valuable, but the most conspicuous, and the one that first strikes the eye and rivits the at tention, is the painting by Ary Schaf fer, of the gambling scene from Bul wer's play of "Money," and for which it is stated, August Belmont has of fered 820,000, and been refused. Seated around the room and at the gambling table are a number of ladies all of whom are dressed in the height of fashion. The players are flushed with excitement, but the dealer, in her Pompadour waist, half revealing, half concealing an ample bust, sits calm and collected, and rakes in the "chips" with the utmost sang froid. Ever and anon some player, when heavy bet is lost, calls for wine,which is speedily supplied by an attentive and demure looking Hebe. Demure! Yes, but it is the demureness of the oat. Offend her, and she will quickly Bkow you that she has claws. That lady at the center table, sit ting between Anonyma and Aspasia, is the wife of one of the most weal thy merchants. I could tell you her name, but tales must never bo told out of school. Observe that young lady with a bonnet no larger than cockle shell, and Bismark brown rib bons; the one who is now taking off her diamond ring to stake, and which she will lose as sure as eggs are eggs, is the daughter of an ex-judge. Ah! our wealthy merchant's wife is a loser, see, she rises from tho table biting her lips till blood comes to conceal Come, let ns away. Such scenes do not make our opinion of poor weak nature the more exalted. Is it any wonder that we so fre quently see rewards offered for lost diamond rings, necklaces and brace lets? If we had the power of As modeus, we would see these "lost" ar ticles in the safe of some gentloman who has for his sign the old Lombar dy elm of three balls. The thirst for gambling will be satisfied, and the money must be obtained. Yes, yes, Hamlet was right. There are more things in heaven and earth than dreamed of in our philosophy.'' her .emotions. are COLVIN BRO'S & WARREN, MANUFACTURERS of BRITANIA& PLATED WARE Particular attention given to Replating and Repairing old Ware, 44 WASHINGTON ST., Gf>R.

SUBSCRIBE FOR THE RBPUDXATOR An eight Page Weekly Journal, pabKihed , St. Louis, Mo. Advocates th. repudiation of the oalU* 1 80 National Debt: BEAD ITS BLA TFORMof PRINCIPLES The object of this Journal is to aecompiish tho Repudiation of the so-called National Debt, except that portion of it represented by Legal lender Notes. These Notes, popularly known as Greenbacks, having been received by tho people in good faith must be in good faith redeemed ; and, with a view to this end must be made receivable by the Government in all its pecuniary transactions. But that portion of the debt represented by bonds 1ms no such claim to consideration. These bonds are tho represent* t ves of fraud, of stealing, of public plunder, and other forma of rascali ty ; and the people cun not par them without making themselves parties to the crimes which the bonds represent. In this just view of tho subject, tho repudiation of this so-called debt becomes a high moral duty. But it is a duty in a yet higher sense. Man's first duty, in his political or social cftpacity, is the establishment and maintenance of Liberty. But debt and liberty cannot co-exist. Such was the opinion of our Revolutionary Fathers; hence they repudiated the debt created by the War of tho Revolution. They held that the liberty of the people was of higher import than dollars, and when debt and liberty came in conflict, they did not hesitate, but expunged tho debt at once. We can not bo wrong when imitating their illustrious example. But how different the two cases! Their debt represented tho honest efforts of a brave people struggling for liberty ; our debt, on the contrary, is tho rep resentative of fraud, is rotten in moral de pravity, and is reeking with corruption. Wo should not pay the debt if we could ; we can not, if wo would. Already has it swollen to sucli monstrous proportions that its interest cats out our substance, paralizes our industry and filches from honest toil all the rewards of its fatigue. And its tendency is to constant increase. The policy of the knavish conspira tors who now- rule and ruin the country seeks to fund this debt and make it perpetual, as a means of accomplishing that very revolution which has been the chief end of their in sidious schemes from the first. They well know what all history teaches, that a system of tax ation, such as this debt necessitates, operates as a perpetual mortgage upon the property, the lives and toil of the people, and, cessnry consequence, converts them into prac tical slaves—the slaves of the bondholders. We are, therefore, in the precise condition of our revolutionary fathers ; we must decide, as they decided, between debt and slavery, or pudiatiou and liberty. If the world has jus tified them iu repudiating their honest debt, shall we not be justified in disowning a debt which is the hideous product of unwiipped knaverf find of plunder patronised by usurped authority ? By disowning this debt we shall strike at the root of ail existing political and commer cial evils. We shall disarm the perjured trai tors, who now sway their usurped authority, of their most formidable weapon which they use against public liberty. Debt and taxation are the citadel of their power; these are tho by which they expect to convert tho whito men of America into the toiling slaves of a privileged order of bondholders, who, like the insatiate daughters of the horse-leech, cry, give ! give ! This citadel, founded in fraud and constructed of debt'nnd paper bonds, can be swept from existence by one breath from aroused and indignant people. And besides, we should thus teach tne world a lesson it needs to learn, namely: that a great people will not bo cheated of their constitutional lib erties by a combination of monoy sharks, thieves and usurpers, who, with bands polluted with corruption, venality and fraud, have the assurance to talk about honor ! But how came this debt upon us ? The rul ing party said to the people: "Give us year bond?, by which to realize the necessary money, and we will restore the Union; w« Will re-establish the Southern States Union, with all their rights and dignities un impaired." The bonds were furnished, the ruling party got all tho money they wanted tor the war, besides a still larger sum pocketed by thieves, But have they fulfilled their part of the agreement? Have they restored the Southern States to the Union with all their lights and dignities unimpaired ? Have they not, on the contrary, wantonly, perversely and maliciously, kept the Union asunder, when they might have restored it in an hour? They have thus repudiated their part .of tho tfbn tract, and now undertake to tell us that honor demands wo shall sanction their fraud and become participants in their crime. We reply, never! never! NEVER! In a court of con scioncej before God or man, we plead fraud and a total failure of consideration. We can not, we will not ratify so stupendous a fraud by even soeming to loud it a public sanction. We s hob Id dishonor ourselves ; we should dis regard tho great principles of Justico and Truth ; we should bo the foes of constitutional liberty, and consent to the enslavement of our American raco, if wo assented to the rati fication of this immeasurable fraud, represent ed by what is falsely called a National Debt. a uo i met - SEND FOR A SPECIMEN COPY.
