L?t us bIiow by the wisdom o our legislation, by the purity of our ad ministration, that our highest ambition is to serve the people, and our greater effort to do them good. Let us show to the Republicans, who are disconten led with their paity, lhat they have a safe refuge in our party.

If we do this, if we show -to them that the Democratic party is neither dead nor useless, but that it is instinct with power and strength and activity, and courage and patriotism, we will gather them all in. This is our eppor tunity. I beg the Democratic partv, and each of you gentlemen in his own particular sphere, to show that we use it wisel3T. If we do, the movement that was commenced in Ohio on last Turs day, will gain day by day moral and numerical strength; day by day it will appeal to the honest men of all parties and all shades of opinion, until they will form an overwhelming mass, by means of which we will achieve a victo ry which will secure to us power- in the Federal Government and restore to our possession the control of that Admin istration and bring back again to the country the days when all our people lived in fraternal peace and all our Gov ernment was characterized by honet-ty and pui ity.

Henry Ward Bcyeher in the Christian Union approves heartily of the Evan gelical Alliance and its work, for, as he says, "the Alliance is one of the land mirks of the world's advancement to ward a genuine Christian toleration and brotherhood. It is one of the agencies that promote this advancement. Bu progress never fails to go beyond the agencies that set it agoing, and the time will come when the Christian world .hal outgrow the Alliance. Each generation think that it has attained the end progress, or at least that its own idea is that end." But every generation short sighted. Our horizon is not the end of the world : Beyond the partial unity accomplished by the Evangelical Alliance, there will come, in the fulnes of God's time, a broader fellowship an a profounder union of Christians Meantime let us rejoice in what we have, the more that it is the promise of lhat which is to be " ffA fashion writer says: "Impor ted cloth garments for tbe street consist of fancy coats and jackets, such as wo men might wear who were masquera ding as men.

How some western gamblers found their master in a Michigan conductor is thns told in the Detroit Free Press of Friday : "For the last month a trio of u)"nte men have been 'working' the lines running into Detroit. They have been put off the Central, chased off the Detroit and Milwaukee, and kicked off the Lansing road, but they made a fresh start the other morning on the South ern, going out on conductor Wilscys train At the depot they got in with an old man namrd Fremont, who lives in tlsburg, and was on hti way home Thev pretended to live in Pittsburg al so, and soon after getting on board the train thev brought out their cards. Fre mont is one of those smart old chaps who think themselves posted, and tie new the game and decided to make some money out of them. He lost 85, then 810,nnd between Detroit and Junc tion he lost 855. This was all the mon ey he had, but his blood was Up, and lie had hauled out a heavy gold watch to stake on the next bet, when the con ductor passed along. Seeing what was going on, Wilsey told the old man to put tip his watch At this, one of the gamblers snatched it, saying, 'I have won this T and then looked op at the conductor with a face mil of brass The train had been at a stand-still, and as it started the conductor pulled the signal to stop and turned to the gam blers and demanded that they give Fre mont back his watch and money. They refused in chorus, and one of the gam blers, ns the conductor's coat came off, shouted, 'This is better !' and pulled ont a revolver and lined it on Wilsey s eye Commence shooting! replied the con diictcr, srtjd Out came his own pistol.nnd for twenty seconds two revolvers were held up Into two men s faces, hammers up and fingers on the triggers. The two other gamblers began to feel for their hip pocket, when Wilsey quietly said: 'If vou don't hold up vour hands I'll blow the top of your head off.' . At that moment a Toledo merchant and a ake captain came up, each with a cock ed revolver. At this the gamblers of fered to restore the watch, and when they had done so the conductor made them return ihe full 855. 'Now then,' said he,when he was through with them, get off of this train. I shall remember you, and if I ever catch one of you on my train agaia I'll . have the engineer run her up to sixty miles an hour and my brakemen will pitch you into the first swamp.' The fellows were ready to go." A Brilliant t?edalnp. The wealthiest Hebrew families in New York assembled at the residence or Mr. Lewis, 44 East Forty-ninth street, to witness ihe marriage of Miss Minne Lewis to Solomon I. Waitzfelder. The rooms were brilliantly decorated. and the one in which the presents to th bride were exhibited was filled with rare and expensive ornaments. Superb tea sets, brilliant chandeliers, diamond jew elry, gold and silver card cases made up an array of gilts to the cost.of 82a,000. Casta Value of the emigrants, Since'vMay, 1847, up to Thnrsday, there hare been landed at Castle Garden 5,260,357 persona, well nigh twice as many persons as were in the United States at the close of the revoiu ion Of these 1.863.430 were Irish, 1.969,900 were Germans, 651,272 were English,and the remainder of various other - nation untie. Eminent statisticians estimate the average cash value of a mail at 81. 000; that, is.if he could be sold he would "e worth that much to the purchaser. The 5.250,000 emigrants who have hu ll at Casus. Garden are thus worth 85.- 230,000,000 .That they, are their own owners make them of much higher value, even as property, to the country. Again, as estimated by Mr Kapp, one of our ormer commissioners, each . emigrant brings on an average 875 in money But ns citizens and producers the value of emigration to the country is beyond all statement in dollars and cents.
