And strike for happier days; Count everv stripe and every star A people's pledge tor liaycsi No iron road shall filch the land, No rich shall grind the poor. But trade and school go hand in haud And commerce still endure: Not "rags" hut gold shall build the State And iill the Treasurr, Where honestv shall guard the gate, And honor clasp the key! Our platform planks are strongand. fair, What hand shall tear them down? Bring torth, bring forth the curulo chair: And hrinirthe mural crown ! I hear the tramp of marching men That throng the teeming ways; From all the rout rings forth the shout, "Hurrah! hurrah lor Hayes I" There's Sammy Tildenof New York, Anil Rillv Allen too. Who seek to sail our ship of State With a Democratic crew; But we've nailed our colors to the mast And we'll double-shot our guns. While full and fast before the blast Our tide of victory runs!

November nights arc dark, my boys; And November days are-iinn, But we'll not begrudge our II reside joys While we chant our battle hymn.

PHILADELPHIA, JUNE 26,1876. I is in Dom Pedro is again with us, and expects to spend a month in viewing the Centennial when he will sail for Purope. In a hundred different ways he shows in his intercourse with Cen Innimlilins. a hirco fund .of Bound oniinbh sense, and thoroTTgh' gbWdfa-cfirtassortment-of feeling to the Ame:ican people, and will, when ho leaves, carry with him the hearty good wishes of all who have met him. The aggregate number of admit tances to the grounds now amounts to nearly a million and a half, but the average daily attendance is only tbout twenty-hve thousand persons, not one-third the average necessary to make the great show a financial success. The number of visitors to the city is now daily increasing, on account of the near approach ot the fourth, when it is expected that the city s capacit will be more severely test ed than for a century to come. The exercises of the fcourth arc to ho conducted in Independence Square, when live thousand persons can be criven standing room, instead of at the ground as was first proposed. Everybody seems thoroughly sat- sfied with the Exhibition and thinks it not only worthy of our countn', but an honor to it, hut visitors from the different sections express their approbation and admiration in dif ferent ways. The Philadelphia ladies cry out "Is'nt it cunnmgr New York la dies, "How superbly lovely!" Bos ton ladies, "Ah, how exquawsite!" Louisville ladies, "Beautiful, lo shaujrh !" Chicago ladies, "Oh, my I wish I owned that!" while the genuine Yankee girls from the rural districts exclaim "Geminy, but ain't thet'erc a stunner, neow! ' But to commence our regular tramp abontthc building. On the loft, as you enter the Main Building by its chief entrance within the grounds, is the rich and artistic display of Italy. Her space is divided into three compartments; the first and second being devoted to art, pure and applied, and the third to articles of pure mosaic utility. Entering the first division you find yourself in the midst of a varied collection ot ooiects ot art. 10 ine right is a curious piece of wood carv ing, about which you will, as usual consult vour official catalogues in vain. The only way to gam the tie sired information is to hunt up one of the exhibitors and interview him or to wait until some person, who has probably gone through the interview ing process, enlightens his friend and the bystanders with his hard earned knowledge. In this way managed to pick up the fact that the piece is a reproduction of a window casement and artistic surroundings of the Pompeiian villa. It repre seats a ruined window casement. The stones have fallen away here and there, and given foot hold to the vines which have clambered up the sides and hang over all in graceful nrofusion. Beyond is a heavy and richly carved bedstead, which handsome, but as a very practical lady beside me remarked, a splendid dust collector and broom defier. There are also some handsome cabi nets, mantles and smaller articles, The center of the compartment occupied by bronze and terra cotta reproductions ot famous statues, bles and other articles in marquetry. An exqusite table inlaid with mother of nearl is always surrounded by admiring crowd. It represents Cathedral of Milan by moonlight. -camlloa, wit! The view; is from the corner, and the pale light, of the moon which falls pon one. side of the edifice "With listeiiing'spire and pinnacle adorn ed;" is an mirably represented in the pearl. The second division is given up almost entirely to jewelry, and is a favoritexesort of the ladies. Itis almost impossible to reach the cases. owing to be number of fair creatures who stirrounu tnem. With heads to tho center, they protect themselves against intrusion by a picturesque fortiGcation of dress goods,surmount- cd by a cheraux de frise of parasols. There are some beautiful specimens of jewelry here, and I don't wonder that the air is .full of admiration points, and openly expressed viola tion of the tenth commandant. The filagree work is gold and silver, is very delicate and beautiful, and har dly so interesting as the cameos, au taglio3 and mosaics. There is a great variety of these, so many that it is difficult to do them justice. Even in looking at them the eye becomes wearied and it is only after a number of visits jliat one can begin to ap preciate their value. There are also several fi3e cases of turquoise and coral jewelry, and one or two of beads and necklaces of malleable glass. Iti one comer there is an ex hibit ol Majolica ware, which is chiefly interesting from a set of figures, which it contains. One rep resents a shoemaker with the imple ments of his trade about him, chew ing' a piece of leather to make it easily worked; another a macaroni eater, devouring long strings of his favorite comestible, and reminding on of "sweetness long drawn out." Of course there is the inevitable be: iggar, under various guises, most isgustingly real and importunate. With a promise to call again, you descend ito common things, but by asy atagoa, for a portion of the third division is devoted to Majolica ware, terra eotta, statues, and articles bronze. There are also some handsome mosaic table tops. Here the articles are all labelled, generally very intelligibly, but a group of fu gitives, in terra cotta, hears the some what cnfgmatical inscription, "Fly in -tho last days of Pompeii," a piece of ery gdojl advice, the hgures seem to follow to the best of their ability. The Dental Museum, ot .Milan, ox hits a case of false teeth, ami mod els of hloeratcd jaws, etc., which is enough to make ono wish that his wholo masticatory was artificial. The fnmoiis'Leghorn straw is represented a number of cases of hats, para- sofa, ajiil a variety of light articles. A country where so much wax is con sumed In tapers must make some dis plav of'tho articles, and here we have ' 'rii?-.. .. ... 51 ...:n. plenty of "vesuvians" or wax match es to 'light them. A number of cx: hibitors display boots and shoes, blankets, spreads, toweling and cassi meres, and silk is shown in the co coon, and wound. In one corner arc several patented articles, among them letter-box, with mail-bag hanging below it a safety lock and a signal on the principle of the bell-buoy. There is something suggestive in the placing f the statue ot Garibaldi, which oc cupies a position near the sum isle. rhe figure is a lite size, and rcprC' sents the great unificr.tor in a sitting posture, his head resting upon the lght hand, aud lost m thought and meditation. You might imagine him have just passed through the county's display, and to have sat down to rest and meditate upon what he has soen and upon the present and future of "United Italy." Just be yond him are appropriately placed the maps which he did so much to al ter, to their present -form, and here also are photographs of classic and world famous scenery and edifices, together with engravings and a large collection of sheet music, and operat ic scores and librettos. 1 he outside of the enclosing wall is hung with outline drawings of leaves and de signs in various styles of completion, showing whence the designer drew his inspiration. 1 here arc numerous architectural designs, and some spec iinens of wall paper. A Remarkable Invalid. [From the Boxton Globe, June 21.] is an the" Miss Ruth W. Burgess, who died n Plymouth on Saturday at the age of sixty-four years, began to be af flicted when about eight years of age bv having fits or convulsions, and finally a paralj-sts ol the ngnt eye. Soon after this she was alHicicu witn dropsy, and her cure of this disease has a somewuat remarKauiu mciuuui.. Her brother being in Dcraarara, con suited a French physician in regard to her. who gave him some medicine that effected a cure. Upon being in vestigated, it proved to be. cannabis, or Indian hemp, which, from that time has been used by the faculty here with great success in cases ol dronsy. boon alter this she recov ered the use of her eye, but lost her eyesight entirely for some time, and has had onlv partial sight since. Soon after this her health improved materially so that she was able to walk across the room, but in a short time she began to have spasms or convulsions of the most painful char actor upon her left side. Her left leg would bo drawn back and twisted until the solo of her foot would rest upon, her right shonlder. This was gradually brought back, but had to be tied 'in order to keep it in its place, and from that time until her death had generally to dc securea It is now about twenty years since this has been necessary.. After this a contraction of the organs of the throat came on so that .she was un able to swallow. A set of instrn mcnts was made in Boston under the direction of her physician by which the constriction was partially re moved, so.that semi-liquid substances could be forced down her throat witn an instrument made for that purpose, and sho never after was able to swal- low any but very soft substances. In dications of consumption now showed themselves, and she' soon presented every appearance of a person in the last stages of this disease, so much so that her physician, on going ofr for a few weeks, told her mother that he should probably never see her again. let, wonderful to tell, she recovered entirely from this. She then began to have abscesses of the liver, and her body was so swollen that her breast bone was even with her chin. But a cough sot in, and she began to raise matter in some waj- almost incredi ble to physiologists for about six days,: when a change took place, and the discharges passed otf through a natural channel. Ilerswelling went awdy and left her almost a skeleton, so reduced was she. But she recov ered from this. During these years. and while undergoing all this, she had the measles, scarlet fcver, small pox and itch, and these diseases went through their regular course. She has been bedridden now for more then twenty years, living in this man ner, and has survived a family con sisting of father and mother, four brothers and two sisters, all of whom were of good health and constitution. During some of the attacks of con- ulsions her head and feet would be rawn backward, so that they would meet and remain in this position eighteen hours. Under all these af flictions she bore up with a sweet and patient temper. For some time she kept a little shop, having shelves put up on the wall by her bed and within reach of her right haud, the only one she was able to use, and here sho sold little confectionery and small things. She was very industrious, always doing whatever she could. She did much tine sewing and dressed dolls for the children even when una ble to see. For about twelve weeks sho has been now gradually failing and has at last passed away, and it is said by the physician who has atten ded her for the longest part of her sickness, himself an old and expe rienced surgeon, that he does not be lieve if there was a post mortem ex amination made that any organic di sease would be found, all her mani fold ills having been functional and none organic; The case ot jiiss isur gess has been one of great interest to the medical faculty, and she has been isited by many physicians as a phys iological curiosity.

The man who has. three times beaten Democratic Presidential can didates Tor Governor in our own State, would beat the fourth in the national canvass even without the ad ded strength of 3Ir. Wheeler's name, but that alone is a tower. Mr. Mon roe, of the Eighteenth Ohio District, savs: "When the two condidates be come personally acquainted they will bo mutually "delighted. Knowing them both intimately, I am heartily gratified with the choice ot the Con vention. There can be no stronger combination of names. Mr. Whee ler is a cousin of Rev. Allrcd Whee ler, of the Methodist Church in Ohio. He is a devout communicant of the New York Avenue Presby terian Church here, a man 'of fifty seven years, and of quiet, rugged strength of character. He repre sents to my mind more of the ideal traits of George Washington than any other man of the country. In the midst of heated Congressional debate he always sits calm anil self- poised; in the familiar relations oi home life, in a crowded boarding- house, where I have known him month after month, lie presiding at the table next our own, I doubt it any one has ever seen a flaw in his character. I havo several times spoken of him incidentally in my Cleveland letters, as yon will re- momber, especially in connection with his bereavement in March last. bv the death of Mrs. Wheeler. You will, perhaps, remember that I told you in connection with Mrs. Whee ler's obsemiics, that Randal stood 1v with tears in his eyes, and that Senators t-onKiing ami ivernan oy their special request, were placed unon the list ot pall-bearers, i never knew a man more thoroughly nnnmhitious of office than he, or more adverse to ordinary newspaper mention. Itis by the solicitation of prominent Republican tneniis, mat ho has consented at all to this na tional use of his name. He will ac cept the trust as a duty, to be grave ly and conscientiously unueriaKeu, and those who know him best know best honr unsought and uncoveted it was. vet how high is his deference for the voice and mandate oi tne people. I am indebted to Mr. Whee- ler. and to his regards lor my iioinc unhlic of the Herald for some of the best judgments of meu and affairs that I have ever been aoic to giean for you, but always coupled with the statement that it was his habit to avoid anv public mention of his name in any connection whatever, and it is only because it has so sud denly sprung into national promi nence that 1 feel at liberty to say ranch about him now.

When the news of the Vice-Presidential choice came to our group, clustered in the cheerful pub lic parlors or the house, while the hundred guns were booming from Judiciary Square, there was the si lence of a moment; then Mrs. Cam eron, with tears in her gentle eves, said, 'Dear Mrs. Wheeler!

Following in its footprints is agricul ture, stock (cattle, horses and sheep,) and the lumber trade. New mines are being discovered every day. Capitalists arc now tak ing great interest in mining, and large capital is being invested. In the last three years ranchemcn have been impressed with the idea that they can raise any and every thing there that they can in any conn try; and, as far as has been tried, have succeeded. Owing to the vast amount of grass that the rich prairie yields they can enter into stock business with assur ance that they are going to meet with success. The grass is short but very nutritious.

Constitution alist says: We heard His Honor Judge "Gibson, on Tuesday, tell an iimtising story of the way a juror went for a conviction, lie says ne was trying a murder case a fewycars ago down in one of the wire-grass counties, and experienced great dif- ficultv in getting a liiry; that eleven jurors had been sworn in, and in the next panel that was drought in was a small, lean, lank, cadaverous-looking fellow, who had on one shoe, his pants very nearly above his knees, his shirt ooen both front and back, and the aforesaid trousers were held up by a single suspender. The solici tor proceeded to ask the usual ques tions in such cases as follows: "Have vou. from having seen the crime committed, or heard any of the testimony delivered under oath, formed and expressed any opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the prisoner at the bar?" The "single gallus" fellow in a clear ami distinct voice, answered, "Not any." Second question Have you any prejudice or bias resting on your mind lor or against wic pnsuuei wi the bar? Answer I hain't. Third question Is your mind per fectly impartial between the state and the accused? Answer Hit air. Fourth nucstion Are you con scientiously opposed to capital pun ishment? Answer I isn't. The State did not like the juror much, but it being late, and jurors scarce, he was put upon the prisoner in the usual manner, the solicitor saying: "Juror, iookt upon . ..v 1 - lm prisoncr, and when tnis comiuauu was given he bent over him, scanning him from head to foot The juror looked the prisoner firmly in the face, and then turning to the Judge said, in a firm, solemn voice, "Yes, Judge.

Henry Ward Beechek- was sixty three last Saturday. The Prompt Juror. A Beautiful Extract. The following beautiful extract, written by Geo. D. Prentice, con tains some wholesome truths beauti fully set forth: Men seldom think of the great event of death until the shadow falls across their own path, hiding forever from .their eyes the trnces - of the loved ones whose loving smile was the sunlight of .their existence. Death is the great antagonistof life, and the cold thought of the tomb is the skeleton of all feasts. We do not want to go through the dark val ley, although the passage may lead to Paradise; and, with Cliarles Lamb, we do not"want to. lie down in the muddy grave, even with kings and princes for our bed fellows. But the fiat of Nature is inexorable. There is no appeal of relief from the great law which dooms us to dust. We flourish and fade as the leaves of the forest; and tho flower that blooms and withers in a day has not a frailer hold on life than the mightiest mon arch that ever shook the earth with his footsteps. Generations of men appear and vanish as the grass, and countless multitudes that throng the earth to-day will to-morrow disap pear as the footsteps on the shore. "In the beautiful drama of Ion, the instinct of immortality so elo quently uttered by the death of the devoted Greek, finds a deep response in every thoughtful soul. When about to offer his existence a sacrifice to fate, his beloved Clemantho asks if tliev shall not meet again, to which he replies: "I have asked the dreadful question of the hills which look eternal; of the clear streams that How forever; of the stars, among whose fields of azure my raised spirit has walked in glory. All were dumb. But while I gaze upon thy living face I feel there is something in the love that mantles through . its beauty that cannot wholly perish. We shall meet again, Olcnianthe! ' A Five-Pound Dwarf. New Orleans Republican. One of the most remarkable human beings ever seen in this country, or perhaps in any other, arrived in this city Inst week, and is stopping at the St. Charles Hotel, with her parents, direct from Mexico and unknown to the American public. The child, Lu cia Zarate, was born at Vera Cruz, and is said to be twelve years old. She is twenty inches high and is said to weigh scarcely more than five pounds. Imagine a French doll walking and talking to you, and some idea of her appearance can be had. Standing on a parlor lloor her head reaches about to the scat of an ordinary chair, and yet her limbs and body are in all respects welt proportioned.- Mrs. Bdknapeould get no more than one toe of her foot into the Mexican girl's shoe. Her head, about as big as a man's fist, is well shaped and covered with soft, brown hair. The only thing out of line with her size is her nose. That wa3 evidently made for a larger girl, but it will do. bhe has bright, blacK eyes, and is intelligent, conversing in a little voice in the language ol her parents. She runs and plays about the room as if she enjoyed her little life, and salutes and bids adieu to her guests with evident propriety. In the way of a joke she offered to carry a lat reporter on ner uacu, and stooping over, asked him to climb up on her shoulders. The lit tle midget will astonisu any one who sees her, because she is so tiny and so human. Standing by the side of Tom Thumb she would reach his elbow, and the General would look like an overgrown and bloated aris tocrat. Liliputian is to be taken to the Centennial Expositiou, and stops here for a few days to consult doll s dress makers about fashional ward robes lor herself. In the meantime she will hold receptions at the Academy of Music. It's A Boy. St, Louis Globe-Democrat. One evening recently the friends of a married couple up in Chillicothe determined to give them a surprise party. To this end twelve couples of young ladies and gentlemen, with well-lillcd baskets, made their ap pearance before the honse about nine o'clock. As they came up to the door they saw the gentlemnn stand ing in the alley way, with his over coat on, smoking a cigar, and the par lor was all lighted up. This struck them as rather singular, hut the leader grabbed the door-knob, and they rushed hilariously in. -Thegas was burning brightly, and six digni fied old ladies were sitting around the stove, looking as solemn as grand inquisitors. "Oh, my! wherc's Mattie?" shout ed one exuberant young lady, setting her basket on the piano. "She's upstairs, said an old lady, looking over her spectacles with sol emn acrimony. "Let's have her down," screamed half a dozen girls in chorus, as they made a break for the hall. "Here girls, girls, don't go up there!" and the old ladies made a hasty attempt to check, the proposed raid. "Why, what on earth's the matter here, anyhow?' inquired the impa tient darlings. "Well, I believe it's a boy." "Oh, let's go!" And that company of nice young men and women moved away like a soap bubble in a hurricane, and the girls never stopped for beaux or bas kets, but stuffed their handkcrchier3 in their mouths to hold their breath down till they were safe behind their own doors, and not a girl In the Fourth Ward knows where Mattie lives. , m i Ex-Gov.
