WTVf. tvash. : RHit-or. "Truth jftice." ' f 'ir SOiti Advance VOLUME XLI. GALLIPOLIS, OHIO, THURSDA . NOVEMBER 2, 1876. S8M1I 81 THE DONATION PARTY AT WILLOWBROOK. So manv confused and con trad ic tory rumors have been circulated about that last donation party that I (who have heard the whole story from mv friend and neighbor Miss Mix) would like to give the world a nlain. unvarnished account of the whole festivity. Let me then introduce my inform ant, Miss Melissa Mix, spinster, own ing to forty, moderately well endow ed with this world's goods, house keeper and care-taker for her only brother Ealph, some' years her senior, both of them prominent members of the Tv illowbrook cnurcu ana tnus heralded, she shall tell you the story she told me. "Of course we can'.t give out min ister much of a salary,' you know, Miss Harwood; but we've always calkilated to get a man whose heart wasn't set on filthy lucre, as the Tos tle says. "I mast own we hain't had much success, for, would you believe it? out of five candidates that preached here the year we built the churchy not one was willin' to stay and do the Lord's work. "Why, there's only about sixty families in our church, and it. was set tled that first winter that six dollars a family would be a fair tax, tnakin' nigh onto four hundred a year, yon see; yet it's wonderful what trouble we've had to git a pastor. "Brother 'Ralph thought that xnebhe if we had a parsonage it would help us; so be and the other trustees bought that nice little cot tage where Miss Gray used to live, with a whole rod of land belongin' to it; but, law! 'twan't of no use; none of 'em staid the year out; and I was clean discouraged. "When Mr. Ormsby came, nigh on three year ago, he seemed; more rea sonable than he rest, though he ask ed if we couldn't furnish part of . the parsonage for him, as they was only new beginners, and hadn't much housekeepin' stuff. "Well, the Iadie3 was so well pleased with him that they took right hold of the work (he was to come back in a fortnight) and got lots of things together. 'There was a handsome pincuSh ion made for each of the bedrooms there's three on 'em in the house and half a dozen tidies for the parlor, and a case for his shavingpaper, and all sent in the first week. "You've heard him preach, Miss Harwood, and you know how inter estin' he was, and -what a beautiful reader and singer too. Why, I de clare I took real comfort goin' to church and sittin' nnder such preach in'; and so we all did, I'm sure. "But I was tellin' you about what we gave him. Well, Deacon Stjle's daughter Sally made a drawin' of the church, and framed it in pine cones, to hang in Mr. Ormsby's study, and the deacon sent us a. cookin' stove out of his own kitchen. He'd just bought a new one for Miss Stiles, and he come over and put it up him self, which I thought was uncommon kind. "Then we took up a contribution to buy some furniture, but ready monev was skurse just then, so we onlv raised enouirh to cit a pair of china vases and an inkstand. "But Silas Hart, that sold 'em to tjs, was one of onr members, so he threw in a .chiny dog for the baby and a match-box for the parson's, wife. "Miss Jones and Uncle Midian sent in a new painted bedstead and a kitchen table, and so I told Ralph I'd give 'em a couple of kitchen chairs ana our craaie, me cna we wq uuwj rocked in. So I did, and I pieced a real handsome little quilt for the cradle, a sunflower pattern, all out of spick and span new calico too. "Well, its 'most to bad to tell, but Mandy Jones, who went to help Miss Ormsby git to rights, told me that she did act dreadful, and not a bit becomin' a minister's wife, "She went all round the house lookin' as if she was ready to cry, and at last she sot down in the parlor on her trunk, and began to Jaugh at the vases and the inkstand, and then wound up by findin' fault with the stove, which she said looked as if it came out of the ark. fifvp. aways thought she made her husband discontented, tor J.r. urms by was such a meek, quiet, unselfish man that he never would have made anv trouble if she hadn't been al ways complainin' and puttin' him up to grumble. "But I'm wandenn' off from my storv -I started to tell you about the donation nartv. You see the first year we got along splendid with -it, and I mustsay I never saw a better tea-table spread than we set that night for Miss Ormsby. "But that woman never could be satisfied, and she said afterward that it wouldn t take more than two such parties to ruin any. family ! 'It seems she fopnd fault because we all staid to tea with 'em, jest as if we hadn't a Tight to our tea after sendin' in all the vituals for it. "But I don't know as Aunt "Betsy did do exactly right, for she took Miss Ormsby's preserves to put on the table, and they , was all eat .that night, and I s'pose that put her out some. "Well, as I was sayin', the .second year come round, and it was readout in meeun mat ine . aonanon. pariy would be given tlie nexturlday. "Mr. Orra8by read the1 notice, and then he looked alL around and. clear ed his throat two or three times, as if he had sqmetbin' -particljler to, savj bm after waltin' aaninute he phang-! erf'his-mind'and akt'dowrfr'" : MI thought he, acted kinder, queer, tu't'Iws-qulti' iaken"up?iwitbf 'tio- tieiaMiss Ormshv. She got as red as wld 'be.tand, when EBeetin',w&s! :ij$J jhej hurria oat wi-K she didnH. want any one to speak to. her. "Well. Friday came, and by three o'clock we was mostly all at the par sonage. Mr. Urmsby looked dread ful sober, more as if it was a funeral than a merry-makin , I must say but his wife was awful. She was. jest as huffy and short as she could be with .every one, and she went and locked the study door and put the kev in her pocket right before us all, as if she was afraid we'd touch some of Mr. Ormsby's papers or books. "Bimbv we began to think about settin' the table; so Aunt Betsy, Mandy Jones, and me went out into the kitchen to unpack the contribu tions. There was some pertaters and turnips (them we put in the sut ler), a piece of corned beef, two or three bilcd hams, a pot of butter, some apple sass, a big cheese, and such a lot of biscuits it would have taken all .night to count 'cm. "I began to be scart when we took out panful alter panful of biscuit, and no cake to speak of. At last we come to Miss Jones' basket, and there we found 'lection cake, as well as a great batch of molasses cook ies. "I was glad enough I'd sent pound cake and crullers; .but somehow when the table was ready, there was more biscuits on it than any thing else, though we did the best we could. "Mr. Johnson sent tea and coffee from his store, besides sugar and crackers; and Amos Hull he brought a bag of nuts and some apples for the young folks after supper, lie said. "There was so many there that we had to divide 'em into three lots, the dinin'-room bein' small; and it was most seven o clock when they got through eatiu'. "Aunt Betsy staid with me' to'clear up some; ana x tnougiic x never should get all the biscuits put away, for they 'most filled the pantry. "For all there had been so many eaten, yet there was piles and piles left, and, as Aunt Betsy said, they wouldn t need to bake for a montn to come. "It happened so that I didn't go out much the week after the donation party, but, the second Sunday after, I started off good and early for church, and as I turned the corner by thfr parsonage, I saw something that 'most took my breath away. Every one of them sharp-pointed pickets round the house and garden had a good biscuit stucK rigut atop of it! Yes, Miss Harwood, jest as sure as you live, there was Aunt Betsy's nice raised biscuits I could tell hern by the snape ana Miss Hull's, rusks, -and JUiss. Still's soda biscuit, and everyone of 'em wasted in that shameful way. "Well, I stood and looked I hadn t the strength to move and pretty soon some of the ladies came along and jlned.me; and there we all stood till the last bell began to ring, talk- Jin' the matter over, and'feelin' pret ty mad, I can tell you. "Mr, Orm9by had a good sermon that day, but I coc Id hardly hear a word, my mind was so full of the biscuits. "Miss Ormsby warn't there, and as soon as the last hymn was sung, he got up and said that he had had a call from a churoh in the far West, and that he had made up his mind that it was his duty to accept it He went on to say that he would like to go that same, week, and then, without so much1 as tellin' us that he was sor ry to leave us, or offerin' to wait un til we could get some one else, he gave the benediction and dismissed us. "I can tell j'ou there was talk enough when we got out that morn- in', and some of the folks thought we ought to p iqt a committee to asK Miss Ormsby about it, but brother Ralph said, 'No; if they was gom', let em go peaceable, so they all agreed to say nothin' at all. We heard afterward from little Johnny Hall, who was playi' near the parsonage late on Saturday after noon, that Mr, Urmsby he brought the biscuits out in a big basket, and then Miss Ormsby she helped him to stick them on the pickets, and she laughed all the lime" as If it was a good joKe. "I don't want to judge any bod', but 1 never did think that woman was fit for a minister's" wife, and don't think so now. "Well they moved off, bag and baggage, on "Wednesday ot that week, and we've never heard from Mr. Ormsby since, and I don t know as we want to, sem he hurt our leel in's so. though we've never found as good a preacher as he was, and never will." And this was Miss Melissa's story, Mrs. E. T. Corbett, in JTarper's Magazine for UTovember. THE SOUTH. THE SOUTH. Carl Schurz Leaves Reform and Talks About the Paramount Question. The Rebel Claims and the Question of Peace. [From Carl Schurz' Speech at Union League Club, New York.] THE SOUTHERN CLAIMS. Ithas frequently been said byDem ocrats that in the question of South? em claims there Is nothing but a mere partisan cry.. Gentlemen, it is .my sober conviction that there is much in.it and I will tell-you why I . ' ' rr-t. - c i i - ucucic bu. liiu.ouutu uaa uceu im poverished 'by the war, and m con versation with' Southern men myself l cave tound. this to-be their idea Sflnpf thelfortlihaye controlled the laovernment alone since the war; you have taken out or the public treasu ry" millions, of '"dollars -to subsidize steamboatlines., Tou have granted away, millions, of, acres for railroads to.efUWlta yor UHW 'Of comjapV cation. Yon have spent untold sums of money on internal improvements, and while you did this we in the South were exposed to all the ravages of the war, and out of which we have come in an impoverished condition. Now. they say, there is nothing lair er in the world than that we should have the same advantages, so as to get even. Gentlemen, you converse with almost every southern man on this subject, and if he does not tell vou this before election, he. will be candid enough to say so after, if the Democratic candidate is elected. What does that mean? We have dis covered in the course of time that the policy of granting railroad grants and subsidizing this and that private enterprise was exceedingly costly, without conferring a corresponding public benefit Therefore, that poli cy has to a. great extent been aban doned; but I predict in case of a Dem ocratic victory that that policy will be renewed and carried on to a more extravagant extent by that party when it becomes the controlling pow er. That is the one point The sec ond poiut is this: While I was in the Senate and ever since a large number of bills were introduced'there aiming at the refunding of the cot ton tax. You are all aware that during the war we paid hundreds upon hundreds of millions of taxes for the purpose of keeping our Gov ernment alive and our armies going. We did that having been forced into a war by the rebel States, a war that cost 500,000 precious, lives and thou sands of millions of dollars. During the whole time the South contributed almost nothing to the public treasury. There is only one considerable item of the tax that was levied upon the Southern people, and that was the cotton tax, some eight'-eight million dollars or over. Now they demand a restitution of that tax, as it is pro posed by some, not to the individ uals by whom the tax was paid, but to the Southern States as such. I am a man of very generous disposi tion with regard to the Sputh. I thought that when the war was closed the Southern people, who had been in revolt, would again become peace able and law-abiding citizens, and that generosity was not only a duty, but an act of wisdom and justice. And so I have been on.e of the first to advocate a policy ot general am nesty, and of the complete removal of all those political disabilities which, m consequence of the rebellion, had been imposed upon a large number of Southern people. In general I ad vocated a policy of generosity and reconciliation. I am willling to be as generous to them as anybody, but when, after having-forced us into so terrible a war a war that came near destroying the very life of this great Republic a war that has covered the laud with mourning, and put such terrible burdens upon our people when, after such a war having con tributed this little mite to the susten ance of this great fabric of our insti tution, they demand that we should refund every cent of it, I think it is a little too much, And yet you are coolly asked you, the possessors of the wealth of this country to put your hands into your pockets so that $08,000,000 bo given back. 1 tell you, gentlemen, it is my honest con viction, should the Democratic party come into power again, they will in evitably return to the South every cent of that money which was con tributed to the National Treasury in the cotton interest, with interest Wo. I tell you candidly, I fear that the Demccr itic party will be exceedingly generous to their Southern-friends in the way of putting money into their pockets. SOUTH WILL CONTROL THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. Ithas frequently been said that no Northern Democrat, after voting for such a bill, will be able to come be fore his con8tiuenc Is that truer Don't we see things, which, under ordinary circumstances would be In oredible? The South Is now a com pact unit again in the Democratic party. At least tbeDeraocratic par ty wants to fight us, and in case of a Democratic victory the tsouth will not only be solidly Democratic, but it will also remain so for an interminable time. Let me say to you, I would look upon that as a great national misfortune, for, when, in a Republic political parties are divided by geo graphical sectional lines, it will cre ate an unsound and unpatriotio pub lic sentiment; and if it were for that reason alone, I think there would be some impulse of patriotism, moving almost every one to fight against the Democratic party this all. Ap plause. But that is not the point I want to discuss. I say the Demo cratic party "wants to unite the South once more as a solid unit upon its side. In that case the Southern peo ple will hold the majority of the Dem ocratic party and direct its purposes. That 'majority of votes will necessa rily. as before the war, give them the control of the party; they will fall at once again into their old seat of pow er, and holding the preponderance or influence in the .Democratic party the South will necessarily insist upon dictatinsr the nominations for the Presidency and Vice Presidency in that organization,, in other words, just as it was before our great civil conflict no Jxorcnern xemocras win have the least chance lor the jf resi dency or Vice Presidency unless h eniovs'the decided favor of the South em. xemocracv. urn, uui ue iu -r Tin. . l, tt. conseauence or thlsi" Why it is ev ident' " EvervNorthern Congressman who ithinksthatthere'issome'Presi- dentialstnff In him. that a Presiden tial lightning my strike'iKim. some time, will bo very mucn mcunea so do that which will bo 'surest to gain him 'the' favor of his Southern breth ren; So it is evident that not only a few but a'laree majoritv.ofJtforthern Democrat impelled b their ambl-c finn.n'il' TJm-wuiM, tnen a1.A .tm. pelled by one of those impulses that seems to be indigenous to .the Demo cratic mind by the influence of sub serviency to the. Southern dictation, will vote for just such bills as have been, laid before you by Republican sneakers. So I believe that a Demo cratic Administration will, by the very necessities of the case be one of toe most extravagant Aiiuinisi,ra tions this country ever had. There i3 still another reason whjr this will be so. The Southern people, being the preponderating power in the councils of the Democratic party, will also dictate its financial policy. The Southern people stand, now com pared with us in the position of poor relations. In other words, they be ing comparatively poor, and the Nor,th comparatively rich, tho North will pay the great mass of taxes and the South will pay comparative ly little. The necessary consequence is that those wuo pay very mile don't feel the burden of an extrava gant Government, and will therefore always be in favor of spending a3 much money as possible. You have an illustration of this in the city of New York. A very large number of your voters are non-tax-pa3Ters, a mi nority or youryoters are wealthy tax payers; the non-tax payers do not care a snap of their finger how much money is spent by the (Jity Govern ment, and, therefore, you have always a lavish administration. - Is not that so? Then the same relation will be borne by the South to the North as to pur national councils, and, therefore, I repeat it is by the very necessity of the case that a Democratic adminis tration, governed as it must be by Southern influence, will be a most ex travagant one. Applause. THE QUESTION OF NATIONAL PEACE. There is still one other thing I would call your atttention to, and that is the question of National peace. 1 do not mean to repeat what I said of my action with regard to the bouth ern people, and the impulse of gene rosity which I have always followed. Of course I did that with the ex pectation that satisfactory response would be elicited from the other side. We gave them back their rights with a lavish hand; we gave them back theirrights so shortly after the rebel lion that I can onlv repeat what I "have said before, that the generosity of the American people has never been equalled by any other Nation in the world in that respect We did it with the just expectation, or, at least, the reasonable expectation, that the Southern peojle, receiving their rights at our hand, might be counted upon to respect also, the rights of others. Im'-BoiTy-tojr.UtcithtfcJ expectation has been, in a great mea sure, disappointed. When you look at the State of South Carolina, yon will not deny that the situation of things is exceedingly serious. I am the very last man in the country who would approve ot the presence ot troops in the neighborhood of the ballot-box, and 1 would stand by to the last in the endeavor to secure to cverj' man the right to vote unin fluenced by force of any kind, liut as things now stand, if the United States troops are withdrawn we are pretty sure to have another armed force in its place, and that is the nne clubs of the South Carolina Reform Democracy. I believe in reform, gen tlemen, but I do not believe in the reform of the "rifle and the revolver in the hands of the terrorist. Now, then, they may succeed possibly in subjugating Republican majorities, but one thing I Jook upon as per fectly sure wo have come to the set tlement of the questions growing out of the war by debating certain Con stitutional provisions, xhese Con stitutional provisions may for the time being be overriden in this or that State, but if the attoinpt is made .which Hook for almost as in evitable in tho event of a Democratic victory if the attempt is made to nullify them in the whole extent of the Southern country, I am sure that the loyal people of the United States of America will not submit to it TApplause. If the attempt is made upon such an issue between the North and the bouth, the solid south on one side will find a solid North on the other side; and liberal and gen erous as I may be when the question is between a solid North and a solid South, I am on the side of the North all the time. Applause. I am on the side of tho North not because I happen to live here, but because I be lieve that the North contains the in tellectual as we'll as the moral vitali ty of the American. Republic as it is now constituted, jnow, gentlemen, looking at the attempts that are be ing made in the bouth, can anybody doubt that they would be greatly en couraged by a victory of the Demo cratic partyr lam sorry lam obliged to say it but still that party stands in the politics of the country, as a con tinual threat of reaction against the results of the war; and it is my con viction at the present moment that the candidates of the Republican party are qot only the best, but they are the only instruments by which the true interests of the American people can be promoted. Applause. proboscis, ot wnion tne noblest' ani mal may leal proud, but It goes un blown..
