VEGETINE I will try Vegetine. He did, AND WAS CURED. Delaware, O., Feb. 18, 1877. Mr. H. R. Stevens: Dear sir, I wish to (five vou this testimony,that you may know, and let others know, what Vege tine has done for me. About two years ago a small sore tome on my leg; it soon becamea large Ulcer, so troublesome that I consulted -the doctor, but I got no relief, growing worse from day to day. I suffered terribly : I could not rest day or night; I was so reduced mv friends thought I'would never recover; I colsulted a doctor at Columbus. I fol lowed his advice; it did no good. 1 can truly say I was discouraged. At this time I was looking over my newspaper; I saw vour advertisement of Veg etiue, the "Clreat lilood Puriuer" for cleansing the blood froiu all impurities, curing Humors, fleers, etc. I said to mv family. I will try some of the Vegetine. Before I had used the lirst bottle I be gan to feel better. I made up my mind 1 had got the right medicine at last. I could now sleep well of nights. I continued taking the vegetine. I took thirteen bottles. Mv health is good. The ulcer is gone, and I am able' to attend to business. I paid about four hundred dollars for medicine and doc tors before I bought the Vegetine. I have recom mended Vegetine to others with good success. I alwavs keep a bottle of it in the bouse now. It is a most excellent medicine. Respectfullv vours, F. ANT HON'I. Mr. Anthoni is one of the pioneers of Delaware, O. He settled here in 1S31. He is a wealthy gen tlemen, of the tirm of F.

H., C, THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1878. NOTES OF EUROPEAN TRAVEL. Interesting Extracts from Private Letters of Miss Kate Milliltan to lier Family. London, July 4th, 1878. We reached Liverpool last night, at midnight; and this morning, after break fast, we were examined by the Custom House officials, after which all inarched down the gangway and were bundled in to hacks and rattled away over the cob ble stones to the London and Northwest ern railroad statiou. As we here had an hour to spare, we crossed the street to St. George's Hall, a fine, large building, and very elaborately finished off inside. We went into the Court-room, a place of it self enough to make one quail, even if in nocent. Crossing the street, we entered a fine, light freestone building, "Walker Art Gallery," and were much pleased with it. There were some pictures here of which I had often heard. Our hour was soon up, and we went back to the station and were seated in omnibusses, at least they looked like them to me, only the doors were at each side, as in a ba rouche or carriage, and we sat facing each other, four in a car, and in five minutes were flying across the country at the rate of forty miles an hour. After passing over 212 miles of the loveliest country I ever beheld, we arrived at London on Thursday erening at four o'clock, just five hours' ride. We passed the residence of Baron Rothschild, and Hariow, where Byron went to school ; and so many places in English history, but I have not time to speak of them. Everything is so neat, so carefully cultivated; and so solidly built too, as if it meant to last forever. I did not see any fences, but a steep em bankment, on the top of which is a hedge, or they have hedge alone, and a gate wherever there is a gap. The roads have a foot-path on either side, separated from the road proper by a strip of green gass; they have gates across the road, too. How un-American everything is! Xo railway-crossings, as with us. The road either lead&over the track, on a solidly built brick archway, or else goes under it in the same style. I did not see majiy hills f mean what we would call hills, or which would need funnelling ir Ameri cabut we-passed thrirgTi two tunnels, heacliJk' miles ill length, and no end of smaller ones. A lamp is let in at the top' fcerv cab. and it burns newjetuallv. - They haies no er-tank, ftut insteita-Lon waIleu.troujjli nllea w iwi watereon either sle .the track,, fftcftnivvhicli the engine draws itsupplywithout'stoppin M Waterford thews is the only Deaf, and Dunfb school in Euc$land,and it's close 'to the Railroad, so I had a.good .view. ofJt.k fassea itugoy, uiongns o xom Brown s school-days, and wondered if these were the fields wtiere he had walked as at boy. Southdown sheep black- cattle, hedges arid thatch-roofed cottages, cathedrals, ruins, towns, cities, and colleges, all speed by at the rajeot forty miles arrh.o'ur. At Eustace Square the carriages "were wait ing, undwe-were whirled oft" to our ho- tel. Everything seemed so odd. Such re diculous hats as the policemen wear ; and the children, little girls with short sleeve and white pinafores, going sedately to school, or knitting while they watched still younger ones at play on the sidewalk. The typical English horse Ts a broken d&Vn trotter, alljieck and legs, with just enough anatomy to hold the two extrem ities toAcether; in fact, the horse of care- cature. Then, the heavy Clyde horses. with limbs as large around as my waist, and the strength of. an elephant; but, all the more rediculous by contrast, are the tindonkeys, scarcely larger than a New foundland dog. ' The streets are so very narrow that two vehicles can just pass; and two persons on the sidewalk must turn sidewise to pass. But they have very many squares; parks, we would call them ; so it is not so bad as it might be. Directly after we arrived at the Inns of Court Hotel we were called to dinner. We had strawberries, the largest I ever beheld; they are laid, stems and leaves, on dishes and a waiter goes along with a bowl of sugar; you put some of the su gar on your plate and dip your berries into it and eat them. It takes four mouth ful Is to dispose of one strawberry; fact. July 5th. This morning we went to the Tower of London. It was an awful place. We saw where the scaffold stood, and the headsman's block with its deep dents, and all the dreadful instruments of torture. We were in the dungeon in which Sir Walter Raleigh was confined; and in several others, till we were ex hausted. We went over the old moat, now a kitchen-garden, and around by the Thames to the entrance, and getting into our hacknevs went to St. Paul's Church; but it is too large for me to talk about. I was utterly lost in it; and never felt so insignificant in my life. This afternoon we went to Hyde Park and rode through the more fashionable parts of it. The la dies do not dress up as you see them in America, but put it all on their liveried servants. July 7th. We went to Westminster Abby this morning. All the pavements about this quaint, wonderful old place are the graves of untold thousands. Eve ry stone has au inscription of some one; and very many indeed, all the older ones, Ironi loOO back are so effaced, it is almost impossible to read them. The plainest of which I could make out was "Sarah Newcome, died 1652, aged 80," and "Emmelia Xewcome, aged 68." I thought of Thackery's novel, and won dered if he ever came here for names The walls and ledges are also cevered with tablets and inscriptions. I got into the poet's corner quite unaware, aud lift ing my eves, the lirst thing 1 saw was Dryden, and next, "Oh Rare Ben John son," on the wall above. Then came Southy, Campbell, Thompson, Rowe, Gray, Oliver, Goldsmith, Duke of Argyll, Drayton, Barton Booth, Garrik, George Grote and Hirlwall. The latter two hive exquisite busts upon pedestals, set in niches, and their ashes rest directly un derneath, with their names cut iu the stone flagging of the church floor. I say church, for it is one-of the chapels where they have service every dajr, and the con gregations wald over the names of illus trious dead. In a dim alcove I found the tomb of King Siebert, who died in 616. In another clositer I reverently touched the tomb of the beautiful Mary, Queen of ficow, ana Lady Jane Grey's sister lies nere. i ne tomb of the mother of Henry IX is the grandest of all. Henry 5th and 8th are also there, in wooden coffins with their effigies on top. Some vandals had actually whittled their namw into the coffins of royalty. In another cr3pt, where lay the bodies of John 1st and 2d, is the chair iu which the sovereigns of England have been crowned for the last six hundred years. Next the tomb of Mary Stewart, the saddest thing, is a little bronze cradle with a little bronze baby in it, the daugher of James II. Edward, the Confessor, lies back of this cradle. The pavement in this crypt was laid in 1260, and the names thereon are litterally worn off by the multitude of passing feet. The most artistic monument, though small, is the one erected to the memory of Sir John Franklin, representing a ship encrusted with snow and ice and almost crushed to pieces, aud bearing the in scription : "Oil Frost, O Ice, O Snow, " I could not catch the rest of the stanza, for the "beadle" pushed me along; as, with note book in hand, I was the tail end of the procession ; there are fifty of u's. We left the dim old arches of Westmin ster, and, crossing Trafalgar Square, guarded by Landseer's lions, we took the Midland train for South Kennington, where we took the Suburban train and went to the Crystal Palace, where we spent the rest of the day. We went through corridor after corridor, with vines on one side and glass on the other, catching through the shrubbery glimpses of terraces of lovely flowers, ponds and summer-houses. Up stair after stair we went; through long galleries, with signs of "Eefreshments," "Pale Ale," "Ice cold Cider," etc., with frequent injunc tions to remember "this is the cheapest place !" Past booths with jumping jacks and little crystal vases for sale ; past stalls with guide-books and photographs, dolls and canaries, candy and popcorn, and the thousand and one little concomitants of such a show, even to live bees at work, whose queen you might see for a shilling, together with the injunction never to kill a bee. There are here a bewildering mix ture of flower-girls and ancient marbles; effigies of tombs from all the ancient Ab bys, mingled with the most modern sculp tures; parrots, programmes and sign boards, seem to mixed up in endless con fusion; together with patent advertise ments, and exquisite fountains,with nev er a drop of water in them ; rare tropi cal plants; canaries in cages; sparrows flitting around ; stuffed tigers crouching; deers fighting. On one side is the Al haiubra, gorgeous in gold, crimson and purple, and supported by pillars of yel- low marble, connected with airy arches; the-, other a facsimile of the earliest Egyptian style. From JSlizabehian Hall you pass intdthe Farnese palace, with fts rrieeles marbles, so grand-in their silent w ... i i . i i - .i ,i fbeauty ; you look up between the yellow LmarT 'columns at feathery palms and delicate exotics. Enormous hanging baskets are suspended high in air above the balcony with long drooping sprays offender vines. Bare statuary glSams through the green foilage, and the very unpoeticat" perfume ejiatnj,fioni the eating houses and restaurants fills the air. T-r ?j jfej-i ' j t -tf i rHere and therethe dark brotwed head of a mailed tnfght, of he earliest Christian era looms up throughf thereenerrf "'fhrough-rradjaeent doorway,. with the"! significant inscription, "Love thy Neigh bor," you see in marble ah affectionate" group. The bronze monument of Cardi nal Zeno is alsohere,' near Michael Ari. gelo's .wonderful pi&ce of sculpture, Moses, with so many other lovely - pieces in marble, that it is weariness to "the flesh to inscribe them all, in such a be wildering place; like', the good things in the Exchange, they become a drug in' the memorial market. Crossing the main hall and passing through the Alhambra you pass through a magnificent room, at the end of which is the loveliest fernery eye ever beheld. Passing from this, you en ter the Roman Coliseum, adjoining which is the Pantheon, while all around, in marble, are the sculptured heads of the celebrated Romans of history. Still far ther, Is the Acropolis of Athens, with cel ebrated Athenian statesmen grouped around in three long halls, in all ages and stages of sculpture and decay. Next came the Egyptian Court, with its quaint and curiously ornamented and carved walls. The next is Music Hall, of which I can not, for lack of time and space, now speak. We sat down to lunch in an open space between this and the Egyptian Court, with an endless vista of a little of every thing under the sun on either side of us. and munched our bread and butter, cold ham and chicken, with the Sphynx calm ly contemplating us. Festivals. For the Herald. For many years festivals have been of no uncommon occurrence. They had their origin away back in antiquity. The He brews, Greeks, and Romans have all had them, and have transmitted their influ ence to modern times. The Romans did no work on testal days ; the Jews did no mourning; and the Gentiles celebrated them in idleness and in pleasure. They were held for various purposes, such as for the celebration of anniversa ries of noted occurrences; in honor to victors at games and the like.. They were also held as now, for religious purposes. The festivals in honor to Bacchus were similar to the revclings (komoi) against spoken by the Apostle Paul. Gal. v. 21. To say that all the celebrations and fes tivals common in ourcountry are produc tive of evil rather than good, would be too much; but there is one kind of festi vals now very common among many churches which I think is considerably at variance with the principles of Chris tianity. The refference is to festivals held in churches for the purpose of pay ing the preacher, and other expenses. It may be said that they are the most effective means for raising money for church purposes. But we do not believe that "The intention sanctifies the act." It seems to me that if the Savior was to step into one of His houses and tind a festival in full blast, He would do as He once did with the Jews. (See Matt, xxi 12. 13. ) The House of God should be treated with reyereuce, and christian duty with so lemnity. But in these festivals I see neither reverence nor solemnity. God is a jealous God, and Christ is the only mediator between Him and man. Now it is the duty of each person in the church to pay what he can for the sup port of the gospel ; and the only incen tive necessary and acceptable, to stimulate men to duty, is God's love through this mediator. If churches become so negli gent in paying their preachers, do chris tian people think it acceptable of God to bring in such incentives to work, as ice cream, cakes, candies, etc. .through these festivals? What must be the condition of a church whose strongest stimulus ts an ice-cream supper, as social, a festival? These are even carried into private lami lies under the name of "Socials;" and when the neighbors come in they pay for what they get a queer kind of social. "The weapons of eur warfare are not carnal." 2 Cor. x. 4. Then why does not each one pay up promptly his quota, and then, if there is any left, buy the necessary refreshments at the place prop er for their sale? This would be more like scripture teachings. When church es are cold, there is a proper way to stir them up, and there are proper means with which to do it without bringing in such au invention as a festival. MNTH OHIO DISTRICT. Hon. Lorenzo EngJleh to Contest Ibe Field Hilh tic. E. Converse. Columbus, August 15. The Republican Congressional Conven tion for the Ninth District, composed of the counties of Madison, Fayette, Frank lin, Delaware and Pickaway, met at the Athenaeum building this forenoon for the purpose of nominating a candidate for Congress iu opposition to Hon. L. Con verse, the Democratic nominee. The Republicans- of the district, as well as a num ber of independent Democrats take much interest in the fight, and from indications the canvass will be a very active one, with a chance for Republican success. A large committee of leading citizens met early in the morning, and, headed by the Cadet Band, marched to the Union Depot, and escorted the delegates from other counties to the headquarters in the center of the city. The citizens generally united in decorating their places of busi ness in honor of the convention, and among these places were the business houses of several Democrats who are op posedjto the election of Converse. The convention was called to order at 11 o'clock by N. J.Turney, of Circleville, who called upon Rev. R. W. Manley, of this city, to open the proceedings with prayer. Judge T. O. Jones, of Delaware, was made temporary Chairman of the conven tion, and upon his takingjthe chair briefly addressed the delegates upon the import ance of the better class of citizens taking an interest in politics. In his judgment too much of the details of convention were often left in the hands of the vicious and depraved. The Judge thought it an ominous sign to see the son of the old salt boiler of Hocking Gen. Ewing ready to place himself at the head of a rabid crowd of' villainous Communists and rag baby fa natics. , It was for business men to stem this tide by united action. It is patriotism to take a share in. politics from pure mo tives. The well meaning citizens of the country sKeuld not neglect them altogeth eesfor busingss. We can have too much of business, as is the case now with our business man's Governor. The Judge was frequently applauded. Judge Silas N. Field, of Franklin, was made temporary Secretary of the conven tion.' " The flowing committees were an nounced : , w .On(?redentials-Delaware,H. F. Brown ; Fayette, William Millikan; Madison, W. M. Chamberlain; Franklin, T. W. As bury." . . On Permanent Organization Dela ware, T. F. Joy ; FayetteM. S. Creamer ; .Madison, Jomes Lilley ; Franklin, Judge a. N. Field; Pickaway; JohnG-roce.

E. Silcott; Madison, H. Toland; Franklin, John Beatty ; Picka way, B. C. Smith. J. S. Martin, of Madison, and J. E. St. Clair were announced as members of the Congressional Campaign Committee, which is to be filled up hereafter. Upon motion of one of the Fayette dele gation a committee of two from each county was appointed for a conference, and the convention adjourned until 2 o'clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. Hon. G. W. Wilson, of Madison Coun ty, was made permanent Chairman. In taking the chair he scored the last Legis lature in vigorous style for its redisrict ing and other dishonest legislation. S. A. Moore, of Pickaway, was made perma nent Secretary, with an assistant from each county. The Committee on Resolutions reported through Gen. Beatty as follows. It will be seen that the convention made no nomi nation, but indorsed Lorenzo English, of Columbus, as an independent candidate for Congress. The resolutions were adopted without dissent: "Resolred, That we recognize the disr tlnguished ability and integrity of the Hon. Mills Gardner and the Hon. J. S. Jones, Representatives in Congress, and cordially indorse and approve their offi cial conduct, and would gladly support either of them for re-election ; but, as a large number of our fellow citizens, irre spective of party affliations, have invited the Hon. Lorenzo English to become an Independent candidate, and as he has ac ceded to their request, we, therefore, deem it inexpedient to make a nomina tion. "Resolved, That we recognize in Hon. Lorenzo English a gentleman whose pa triotism, integrity, intelligence, experi ence, and intimate relations with the peo ple qualify him in an eminent degree for a seat in the Congress of the United States "Resolved, That the representation of our district demands that the nominee of the Democratic party and the means adopted to secure his nomination should be condemned and reprobated by every good citizen, and that such condemnation can be best expressed by his signal defeat ; therefore, be it further "Resolved, That we hereby pledge our selves to labor, from this day until the election, to secure the election of the Hon. Lorenzo English, and we hereby call on all good citizens to join with usin the attainment of that end." Speeches were made in support of the nomination by Gen. John S. Beatty, T. Ewing Miller, and Rev. James Poindex- ter. Calls were made lor lion Mills liard- ner, but he failed to appear, and the con vention adjourned.

Bridyevort Standard. The Larrnmrs and Their Bonanza. Larripur had no settled occupation, but worked here and there, at whatever odd jobs turned up. He had always lived near the eaves in a tenement house of the poorest description, and couldn't remem ber the time when he had worn a new coat. It will be judged that the Larri purs were not in oyulent ease. The sur mise is correct. Two months ago they were piteously poor, but to-day they have wealth enough to roll in, if so inclined. Larripur came down from his dingy rook ery one morning, to find himself saluted as "Mr. Larripur" by all the neighbors, with something of a bow thrown in along with the wish that his honor was well. Certainly it sounded odd and brought loud roars from him, but when Mrs. Hag erty the glazier's mother-in-law at the mouth of the alley showed him the morning paper and pointed out the head lines that declared his ability to draw good-sized checks that would receive at tention, he threw out his chest and drank in the morning zephyrs all the same as though he was somebody. It was a windfall he had long expected but scarcely hoped to realize; disappoint ments had been so frequent. But this time there was no drawback, as he soon found to his joy, and the Larripurs came suddenly into wealth sufficient to gratify every ambition. It is needless to state exactly how the fortune was acquired, or by what unaccountable process it es caped without being entirely gobbled up by the lawyers. It is more interesting to note the effects of prosperity upon the previously impoverished family. "There's one thing certain," said Mrs. Larripur, as soon as it was settled beyond all question that she wouldn't be obliged to skirmish all over the neighborhood try ing to borrow something for dinner, "an' that's jist this, ole man for you might as well know it one time as another the fust thing I stalll do when I git my claws on some of that money will be to climb inter one o' them 'ere kilter"skirts, with a blue sash you jist mind that, Jerome. I've had my mind sot on one for this long while, but I kuowed it wasn't no use as long as you was outo' work the best end o' the time." "You shill have it, llanner yes, two on 'em, if you want 'em. We'ye got the rocks now, an' I don't reckon it's nobody's business if we spread on a little style. We're rich an' we must let folks know it. I want you wimmin folks to brighten up an' look as though you'd always had peaches an' cream the year round. We've got plenty o' money an' I don't see nothin to bender our bein' happy. It'll go mighty awk'ard, though, for a spell, I s'pose, to go to bed with a full stomick, or pass a watermrlon stand without tryin' to study out how we kin prig one;,, but I reckon we'll kinder come round to-it by degrees. About the fust thing we've got to do, thoug, is to git out of this old bar racks. I wouldn't have anybody to knaw we'd ever lived in the stinkin' ole garbage-box for a thousan' dollars. We must pull right out and git into a ranche of our owiiT . I'm goih" cabin now, Hanner, an outTto "buy the you an' Mandy had better post off at once an' pick out the furnitur', so't thetraps kin be got in to the shebang afore sundown-" "Whatever you do, father, don't forgit to yank onto a crib with a bay winder. It's the boss place to git whenever an organ-grinder is anywhere's about," said the daughter of the household, with a romping grin of eager expectancy. "Never you fret I'll tend to that, Mandy. I've got jist that sort of a shanty in my mind now, in a tolerable tony sort of a neighborhood, too, an' there's four lightnin' rods on the concern what d'ye think o' that? You wimmin is so nervous when it thunders." "That's jist old pizen that is?" ex claimed the glad maiden; "nail her, dad." "I s'pose there ain't no doubt but we're rich enough to 'ford to have a 'ported carpet on the front room floor ?" said Mrs. Larripur. "Folks that purtends to be j anybody alius has 'em, so Mrs. Kidwell says, an' she has washed for families that had pie on the table every meal." "Well, ef it's the Style, that's all you want to know git 'ein. I tell you we're heeled to last, an' I don't intend to let no common peeple climb around us. The man at the bank said wehed a hull bar'l o' money, an' all the carpet you kin' find room fur won't make a dent in it. You'd or't seen the man bow an' palaver aj-oun' me. He didn't seem to remember thet I was the same chap he kicked oil" the steps for settin' down to rest last week. I tell yon, ole woman, money fetches 'em all around." "It does that, Jerry. It wasn't more'n two hours after the news got around, afore mother Padkins come runnin' in with that bakin' o' meal she'd borried las' spring." "Yes," affirmed the daughter, "an' tnatwinet ot a dim uiickers that went back on me after the day was as good as sot, to take upjwith that red-haired hussy, Nance Ruckins, on accounts of hercomiu' out with a new linen suit, an' mine bein in soak so's I couldn't go with him to see the b'loon h'isted, what does he do but come around this niornin', as 'umble as saltrisn' biscuit, an' want to make it all iipbygivin'mea cameo ring an' a fire gilt breas'-pin. But I jist tossed up my top-knot an' laughed in'the rooster's face, an' tolc him he could meander, I was al ready spoke tor by a clerk in a store with a grin like a new tin-cup. You jist or't to been around, father, an' seen how it wilted him. If 1 ever marry now you kin bet I'll git a man that wears clean shirts, if money'Il fetch him; won't I, pap?" "That's what you kin. Mandy, an want you to larn to step nigh, 'hold up your head, keep your oars back, .'in' don't you never let me hear of your darin' to speak to a man who ain't got perfumery on his hankchufl", an' bear grease on his hair. Qisrht smart of the standin' of this family is bound to hang on you, sis; you must mind that, and you'll have to be mighty kecrful, gal, or the fust thing we know you'll be dead-gone on some no- count buggy-washer that'll be a livin disgrace to the hull tribe of, us. Keep your eye peeled for a chap that wears shiny boots an' carries a watch that runs. Good looks ain't to bo sneezed at. 1 know, but don't you forgit that it takes mighty good clothes to. git board without bag: You've heerd the ole man whoop keep step to the warble." Whereupon the fond parent smoothed down his hair with a bar of soap, and went forth to buy the cottage. The 1st of September will mark Urn be ginning ot an improvement iu business that will be continuous. The bankrupt act expires on that day. ill 4iz NO. 41. Does it Pay? Cleveland Herald. A man who for years has carried on a respectable trade in Cleveland, and al ways paid one hundred cents on the dol lar, says the times are so bad he can not go on much longer, and fears be must make some settlement with his creditors. Curiosity ied us to have a little chat with him about his debts and personal habits with a view to some suggestions we thought wise to make. Our friend is a perfectly sober, industrious man. No one ever saw him worse for liquor. He is an indulgent husband and father, and-in all respects a good citizen. But during all this period he has been a steady, moderr ate drinker and smoker. Once in the morn ing and generally twice before bed time he has taken his drink. . Two, three and four cigars a day have been moderate al lowance for his wishes, and; all the time he had thus been gratifying his tastes, the expense of so doing never seemed to him of the slightest importance. ... He admitted that during, thirty years the average sum paid by him for whisky, beer and tobacco would amount to half a dollar per day, and on being questioned, said he cared little for either-luxury that smoking and drinking were, nasty habits, and he would have been just as happy without. them. Taking his own pencil, he found by his own statement, which probably did not cover more 'than half the realesum, that he had expended $5,540 for whisky and tobacco, not cal culating the interest on the money, which would long since have doubled the amount His entire present indebtedness, was .less than $5,000, for which he holds goods of larger nominal value. Had he saved the whisky and tobacco money, he would now be an entirely independent man, and the world for him would be prosperous and satisfactory. All the steady profits he had made in thirty years of bard la bor an average sum of 50 cents a day he had expended thoughtlessly and reck lessly. Is there no lesson in such a story? Our New England fathers after a lifetime of honorable labor, felt that unusual suc cess crowned their efforts, if when they came to die, they left behind an unen cumbered estate worth from $6,000 to $10,000. But these men lived frugal, care ful lives, maintained themselves, educated their children, sustained the schools aud christian charities, endowed colleges, es tablished missions, built churches, all from small personal savings. It is said that nine tenths of all the money raised annuallyin New England for the great charities of the churches, are paid by men and women worth less than $10,000. But our prudent forefathers would nev er have secured a competency out of the rough sil of New England except by the practice of rigid and systematic economy. Had they allowed themselves to waste half a dollar a day for beer, whisky j and tobacco, poverty would have been their certain portion, and New England would have known no thrift, and the story of their usefulness would never have been written. . : . . The truth must be told over asrain: Americans of to-dayafetTie most self-inft dulgent and extravagant people on the face of the globe. There is a. strange-lack of moral sense among a large class of them. Hundreds of men ignore honest debts, yet indulge daily in habits of per sonal extravagance that, under the cir cumstances, are criminal. Rigid economy and abstinence from luxuries with which they have no business, would in time save enough to pay, or fairly compromise, their debts, but it never occurs to them that duty and honor and decency demand it should be done. Speak to one of them who is daily expending for drink and to bacco a sum in which the yearly aggre gate is sufficient to clothe comfortably all his children, and the angry reply would be that that was his business, or a man must have his little comfort. -But in fact, the habits of a man in debt are matters which creditors have the right to com plain of, because their gratification is paid for not by himself, but by them. The people of the German, Swiss, Rus sia and r rench nations appear to enioy themselves as well as our own. They smoke, drink, dance and sing as much as we do. But generally a light, cheap wine or beer satisfies the palate, and along pipe the smoker. The cost of one high-priced cigar daily smoked by all classes in this country, would buy in any other country tobacco to satisfy a smoker a week. The days have gone by when rapid for tunes can be made as during the war Hereafter the process of accumulating property must go on slowly and steadily, ittle by little. Men who are striving to secure a competency for their families must live prudently and economically, like our New England ancesters and the men who founded the Western Reserve. Men who are not rich must have moral courage enough to do so and not live as though they were. Ihe saving and laying aside of one dol lar per day put at interest will, in twen ty-five years, make any family comforta ble and independent. Why will not our young men see this? Why squander money on habits absolutely injurious to mind and body, that which in the end would secure independence for them selves and families, or yearly provide them with comforts, or means of educa tion, which will, in the end, aid them in the coming life struggle? We again ask: Does it pay? Does it pay to spend the certain earnings of an industrious life in smoking and drink ing aud near its close find yourself bank rupt iu fortune, and your families thrown helpless upon the world? If not, it is never too lute to mend. The New York ZViaessays that "Sena tor Thurnnian's own case is an instance of how perilous it is to lodge the regula tions of the finances with the Legislature. With a clear perception of the evils of irredeemable paper money, with far clea er comprehensions than most of his fcl-low-le"-islators of the immense abuses to htcb such money gives rise, he has grad ually been driven to an equivocal posi tion on the question, has gradually sur rendered himself to the dictates of the wildest, uiost ignorant, and most de bauched idements of his party. If, with his superior intelligence aud capacity, he could not tand firm against the errors and illusions of partisan finances, what could be expected of feebler men. There Is something very pitiable iu his present position, Vut there is a grave warning in it as well. A man with the capabilities of a statesman groping in the blind paths of the demasoet'.e because it is only in these that he can hope to find favor with, his party, gives ample evidence of the risk the counrty runs iu putting its currency in the hands of politicians." Beaconsfield paid oyer $1000 for ont garter. Who says times are hard. Several of Boston's leading citizens are spending the heated term in the 'cooler.' A distressing feature df the recent bar becue in Kentucky, at which two men were murdered, was the accidental kill ing of a horse.

San Francisco Post: Two lawyers.wbile bathing at St. Croix the other day, were chased out of the water by a shark. This is the most flagrant case of want of pro fessional courtesy on record. Of the 259 person arrested in the city of Columbus, during the month of July, 58 were married and 201 single. This may be taken as a mathematical demonstra tion of the moral Influence of matrimony. Wives and daughters of coal and ice men are the most expensively dressed of all at Saratoga. The young ladies whose wardrobe is based on gass stock must be at some other watering place. It cost that Washington mob a penalty of just - five dollars for stoning honest workingmen away from their work. How both offenders and victims must respect the majesty of the law.

During a marriage ceremony, a West ern girl, when asked whether she would "have this man to be her wedded hus band," distinctly answered "No." She had just detected the fumes of whisky in his breath. This incident teaches that well, it teaches us several things. A young man should not drink whisky. It shatters the constitution, reddens the nose, and beer is cheaper, you know. It also teaches the value of cloves and car dauion seeds. A simple little clove put where it would do the most good, might have made that young man happy three mouths and the girl wretched the re mainder of her life.
