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

too many ot your winter evenings in

lose an opportunity for educating your

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

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

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."
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."
