The Winter Fire-side at Home. As our country is filled with public schools, academies, and colleges, offer ing opportunities of extended stuay to all, there is danger that some of the best agencies for correctlv forminz the minds and hearts of the youns will be" nezlected. Do we all realize the pow er for eooJ that mav be exerted in tills direction by a right use of our associa tion around "the winter lire-side at home! A word to the young on this subject. If vou follow verv closely the cus toms of societv. vou will spend entirely too many ot your winter evenings in frivolous amusement. You will thus lose an opportunity for educating your selves that you will nnti nownere eise, ou lose, in the first place, the proper cultivation of the domestic aneetions. Nothine more beautiful can this earth show than a little band united by the ties, not only of kindred blood, but of strone and tender domestic affection But this affection will not attain Its full growth or show forth its mature strength unless cheiished. Now, can it be properly cherished, if the hours most appropriate to it, are wasted in alien circles, amonrr those who care nothing for us except as our presence increases the gaiety for which they seek? The home affections and home virtues are amonjr the greatest needs of society, and they thrive only in the atmosnhere oi home. In the second place, yon lose the op portunity for extended reading, which vou will find alone at home, through the long evenings. Tins is an age oi Intelligence, and lie who does not read can not keen abreast of his time. He must read, and read with care and thought, or tho advancing mind of so. cietv will part company with him. If a voung person labors through the laboring months, he has neither time nor strength lor this reading. II he at tends schools, his school hours are oc cupied witli school books. The reading which gives extended information, must then be jlone at home, in the quiet evening hours or never. liugh .Miller read uy the winter ure- sldeora Scotch home; and when he afterwards became a public man, he was recognized as being one of the best informed men In Great Britain. Our own American history is full ot such examples, and we often offer to these examples the tribute of our praise and admiration. But the . only proper tribute that can be paid to a good ex ample is imitation. Young men and women, If you will deny yourselves excessive amusement, and excessive Indulgence in social gaiety, you may nourish around the hre-side or home, home virtues anu affections worth more than any society accomplishments; and, you may become intelligent and well Informed. If you will not, you may go on, and have for few seasons what you call t'a guy time," and then subside Into that' ob scurity to which society assigns those who lack in earnestness and intelli gence, ion may have a lew years of over-strained, unnatural enjoyment, and then, for the rest of your lives, live that dull, unsatisfactory lite-ai- -ways Hved-by-thosevho have-no Inner1 source ot support and happiness. A very lair choice is oUered you, anu 1 that not all of will choose JNO. M. DAVIS. Rio Grande, Jan. 1, 1880. The Supreme Court of Maine, in con cluding its opinion upon the Garceluu frauds, employs language that Is of gen. eral application. It says: 'This Government rests upon the great constitutional axiom that all pow er is inherent in the people, 'it Is a Government of the people, by the peo ple, for the people,' and if administered n the spirit ot its louuuers 'it shall not perish from ttie earth.' Its Constitu tion was formed, to use an apt expres sion of one whose memory is embalmed In the hearts or his countrymen, Uy plain people,' and 'plain people' must administer it. -The ballot is the pride as well as the protection of ail. It is the truest indication of popular will. The official returns required from the municipal officers of the several planta tions, towns and cities, are and will be made by plain people, and made, too, in the hurry and bustle and excitement of election. They arc not required to be written with the scrupulous nicety of a writing-master or with the technical ac curacy ot a plea in abatement, sen tences may be ungrammatical, spelling may deviate from recognized standards, but returns are not brought to naught because the penmanship may be poor, language ungrammatical, or spelling er roneous, it is enougn u tue returns can be understood ; and if understood, full effect should be given to their na tural and obvious meaning. They are not to be strangled by idle techni calities, nor is their meaning to be dis torted by carpings and captious criti cism, vi hen that meaning is ascertain ed, there should be no hesitation in giving it full effect." ri - for Power. From the Richmond State (Dem.) The South is solidly Democratic and will be In that election, no matter what the issue may he, whether for Green backs, silver dollars or gold, a tariff or free trade. We are not making plat forms down here just now. We leave it to the North, as also the candidate. Any platform, and for that matter al most any candidate, will do for us, so only they will secure the defeat of the Radical party, and the restoration of the government to the Democracy. In this respect the South is very liko the New York fireman when the question of the color the engine should be paint ed came up. He didn't care a fig what color theypalnted "der masheen," only so it was red. And you may give us any sort of a platform, with almost any sort of a candidate, only so he is a Dem ocrat, and we will vote all the same. Our object Is to securo our hare, and de cide afterward how we will cook it. A correspondent of the New York Post speaks his mind in regard to the Presidency In these manly words: "No statesman has been more true to the best interests of the people," more determined to advance their prosperity in all that belongs to material things, than Mr. Sherman, ne has dared to do right, and to let consequences take'eare of themselves. Let us have such a man for our standard bearer in 1830." The bouquets and flowers from Mr. Kelly's green-house, witli which the Gallipolis boys intended, to peltJhe.Pin afore girlspwere not" 'delivered." The porter and, watchman, to whom they were "entrusted were a' little off and failed to deliver them when the steamer reached Galllpolls. Iron ton tan.

The contracting parties are the' Pacific Railway Improvement'Com pany and the Texas Pacific Railway Company. Six hnndred miles" are to cost $12,000,000, or about $20,00.0 per mile. - "4 OUR SUPERSTITION. "What Old Ladies Say Are the Signs." The following superstitions, hand ed down by tradition, are yet fervent Iy believed in in many parts of America: White specks on the nails are luck. Whoever reads epitaphs loses his memory. lo rock the cradle when empty is injurious to the child. To eat while a bell is tollinrfor a funeral causes toothache. The crowing of a hen some approaching disaster. JL. indicates When a mouse gnaws a hole some misfortune may be apprehended. He who has teeth "wide assunder must seek his fortune in a distant land. Whoever finds a four-leaf trefoil shamrock should wear it for good luck. Beggars' bread should be given to cnuaren who are slow learning to speak. It a child less than twelve months old bo brought into a cellar he be comes fearful. When children play soldier on the roadside it forebodes the approach of war. A child gr.iws proud if suffered to look into the mirror while less than twelve months old. tt ne wuo proposes moving into a new house must first send in bread and a new broom. Whoever sneezes at an early hour either hears some news or receives some present the same day. ice llrst tooth cast by a child should be swallowed by the mother to insure a new growth of teeth. Buttoning the coat awry, or draw ing on a stocking inside out, causes matters to go wrong during the day. liy bending the head to the hollow of the arm the initial letter of one's future spouse is represented. woman who sow nax-seed should. during the process, tell some con founded lies; otherwise the yarn will never bleach white. When women ara stuffing beds. tho mou should not remain in the bouse, otherwise the feathers will come through the ticks. When a person enters a room he should be obliged to sit down, if on ly for a moment, as he otherwise takes awaj the children's sleep with him. The following are means of death: A dog's scratching on the noor or bowling in a peculiar manner, and owls hooting in the neighborhood of the house. Jomestir,.,harmQnymnsthe4)r served when washing day comes, in order to insure One weather, which is indispensable, as that ceremony is usually performed out of doors. . i Billingsisms. The man who gits bit twice by the same dog is better adapted to that kind of nizzness than any other. Man is a kurious critter; nothing will discourage and disgust him more than to glv blm ail he asks lor. Truth iz like the sun; though it sinks out of sight, it alwaz rises agin in a nu splendor. Uratatuue iz one ov the nouiest, and also one ov the rarerest paslnms ov sen timent ov the heart. Poverty iz no kure for extravagance; a pauper had rather hav one feast than three square moais. The multitudo praze tboze who are at the top ov the ladder, without asking how they got there. 'All that I kno about good luk or bad luk Is this our good luk wo attribit to our shrewdness, our bad luk. we charge over to someboddy's else aokount. The man who iz anksious on all ocka shuns to tell ell lie knows iz pretty sure not to know all he tells. Every one expekts to bo remember ed after thoy are dead, but very few kan truly tell for what. Flattery Iz an evidence ov a craven spirit, we never flatter thoze whom we rcspekt. Young man, watch yure opportunity, and, when yu see it, lay violent hands on it; It iz sure to cum once, and may notcume the seckond time. The most remarkaDIe result ot Gener al Grant's journey around the world is still to be recorded it lias caused Gen eral Edward F. Beale to go to church for the first time in nearly twenty years. Before the rebellion the Bealo lamlly used to attend St. John's, the most aris tocratic church in Washington, and na turally made up largely of Southerners. The rector sympathized with the major ity of ills parishioners, and one Sunday, about the outbreak of the war, went so far as to pray Tor tho success of the rebel cause. This was more than Gen. Beale oould bear and he marched out at the head of his family; registering a vow toat he would never go to church again. But Grant oame to see him, wanted to go to church Sunday morn ing, and his host was constrained to ac company him. Washington Letter. Nature: It Is thought that a crisis in the history of Vesuvius is approaching; either there will be a great discharge, such ps will terrify the neighborhood, or, as is more likely, there will be an overflowing of lava, covering the cone with a mantle of fire, and silently in flicting more destruction on property than a grand eruption. Vesuvius has been in an active state for several years, and Prof. Palmlerl has from the first prophesied that the eruption would con sist in the overflowing of lava. REASONS WHY STOVES Should be bought at the 2d st, below Public Square. First Because they are made in Gallipolis, and every citizen should encourage the home manufacturer. Second.
