It was a matter of much thought Totell where it began ; It was too large a mouth to be Upon so small a.man. And were he coming up"the road Far in the distance dim, You'd see his mouth an hour before You'd catch a glimpse of him. Natnre'sesnblime economy It showed without a doubt, For vast material was saved By leaving that much out. 'Tis said by these who knew him well SThat from the very 'irst lie always soed the'largest words Whenever he conversed. And when he had to pay a pawn With just one kiss, no more, The fair young damsels would complain That each one counted four While for vain-glorious forms of speech He did not care af ig; 'Tis said because his mouth was large He always talked quite big. By men quite competent to know, It has been truly said His month could never grow unless 'T'hey did enlarge his head. I've often heard of men who could Speak volumes, but I'm sure I ne're saw such facilities For doing that before. He had a alligator laugh; And when he went to smile I lie if 'twasn't visible Three-quarters of a mile. But, one day Blodgins disappeared ; 'Twas thought he had gone South; But I stand ready to believe lie crawled into his mouth. What has Been Done. That our people may understatid what results have been accomplished by our coup d'etat of the 14th Sep tember, we propose to give them ex tracts from leading Republican and Conservative journals in the North; a careful perusal of which will con vince us of two facts. First that the overthrow of the Kellogg usurpation did not furnish to our political oppo nents in the North murderous capital, to ride into power upon. We could not be howled at as rebels and cut throats, bent upon the murder of ne groes and Republicans. Second, that the matter of recon struction must be attended to, and although they will not go back upon what they have done, the North will have to preserre herself from the eril turder 'which awe labor, to qualify suf frage in some way, either with an educational or property requisite, and that speedily. Have we not then done good, not only to ourselves but to the whole Union, in this movement, in which besides overthrowing a corrupt and villAinous usurpation, therelh show ing tobthe world that this RKellogg government was not the choice of our people; we have awakened the pub. lic mind of the whole confederation to the study of the startling flct, of their being made soon to feel all the horrors attending the practical illus tration of the theory of Universal sufferage. That it is no love for us, no pity for our sufferings, that has brought this about, we are ready to aver-but they begin to see that this canker cannot be confined to us for all time, but is surely and speedily eat ing into the very heart of the Repub lican structure. Let 's. then not mar the vantage gained by any movement calculated either tq throw discredit upon our past Acts, or compromise one inch of our position ; effected with the loss of so msch time and treasure, and the shedding of so much patriotic blood. Hold on then, Fellow-citizens, "the etep tenor of otr way," disturbing the rights of no man, nor suffering any one to disturb ours. Let every man who holds biself worthy of the name of freeman, REGISTER AND VOTE and opr eucceas. ~ lbeyond adventure. TBE TONE .OR THE NORTHERN PRESS. The nation expects from the Presi dent a manly and magnanimous course. This people have never been disposed to visit harshly upon the President any of his shortcomings. It follow ed font years of administration mark ed with many errors by an endorse ment in the shape of re-election such as. has been given to no President since Washington. This was because the country believed that behind his tendeany to error was the soldier's honest sinqerity of purpose to main tain the right. If General Grant would not forfeit this esteem, and he beamrs nothing riper in the full sheaves of hi famrlet hii be jet to Louis ians. Let him be just to the South. Let him remember the unrdens that rest upon that people--burdens which' even under the brightest auspices make reconstruction a sad and weary labor. Let him give the freemen of Louisiana a freeman's right in the choice of his rulers. And having done this let him throw the weight of his office and his name in favor of a notional convention of peace and reconstruction, ruepresenting all the States, to assemble in our centennial year, to consider the grave and burn ing problems resulting from the war, whichi have brought us scandal in Lonuiiamna, that may to-morrow bring us scandals in Wisconsin, California and Massachusetts-problems of re construction, rights of labor, race, railway and class monopolies, State rights and finance. We cannot ig nore these problems. We cannot set tie them by the sword. The revolu tion in Louisiana is only a despairing prayer for their settlement. Public opinion points the way, and it is for the President to lead it.-N. Y. Herald. The people of Louisiana have, by their prompt submission to Federal authority, atoned for the previous act of revolution. * * * The revolu tionist have disbanded and surrender ed everything. But Kellogg knows, as all the world does, that the people of Louisiana, as one mane demand that he shall vacate the office which he has never held by right. If William Pitt Kellogg will not, of his own volition, resign the guber natorial office of Louisiana, he should be compelled to do so by the force of public opinion North and South. For years upon years the Enquirer stood in the front rank of those journals which led public opinion in civiliza tion's crusade against black slavery, and while it fought, as well as it knew how, against that monstrous wrong against humanity, it is now as strong ly opposed to white slavery. It may be essential, and it would seem to be essential, in order that the forms of law may be duly respected, that Kellogg and his horde of politi cal adventurers should be reinstated in office. But that being done there can be no doubt entertained by any unprejudiced or honest mind that he and they should be forced by public ,opinion to resign their places, and that the McEuery government should be invited to assume the office to whichl the people of Louisiana called them.-Phibsdelplia Enquirer, (Rad.) The wrongs the Louisianians suffer are and have been such as would have stung any other people to fren zy long ago. Lamp posts in New York would be as thick with corpses as Jersey pine trees with crows, had our people an experience one-half so bitter as the people of Louisiana have. -Brooklyn Eagle, (Rep.) We must confess that the political prospects of Louisiana are dark. Two years more of Kellogg's rule, judging from the past, will leave the entire property of the State in the hands of the tax collectors, the proper remedy and the only remedy, likely to be at all satisfactory in its results seems to be a' fair unfettered expression of the popular will of the el ctors of Louis iana at the ballot-box. Anything short.pf that is mere patchwork. The power of the United States from time to time suppresses the hostility to Kellogg, but it fails to extinguish it. Every now and then the United States army is required to go down to Louis iana and set Kellogg, like a child learning to walk, on his feet. As soon as the Federal power is with drawn, down he goes. In conversa tion yesterday he said that the out break.of Monday was due to the with drawal of the. United States troops. What kind of a civil gdvernment is that which goes to pieces as soon as the army of the, UnitedStates marches around the corner ? Our neighbors of Philadelphia are to be congratulated on the spectacle which Louisiana promises to furnish for the "Great International Exposi tion" with which they have decided to celebrate the close of the flrst hun dred years of our national existence. It would be mortifying enough, we should imagine, for the people of the United States to look one another in the face on that occasion, and remem ber Louisiana, and not Louisiana only but a large majority of the Southern States. We are bound, how ever, to have our fashionable friends from over the ocean present with us also, and a very pleasant meeting we shall all have together, no doubt.- Evening Post, [moderate repubbead.] The Worcester (Massachusetts) Press thus alludes to one of Grant's little weaknesses: The fact that'the revolters of New Orleans hinted to President Grant that he did't understand the situation in Louisiana has been made the sub ject of considerable merrimoenot. Let us consider a moment. Perhaps the President's ignorance of the true situ ation in Louisiana is not a laughing matter. Even since the adjournment of Congress, President Grant has been away fromt Washington and separated from his Cabinet. During this 4me he has read the newspapers but little. His papers were looked over by his semetary, and when an important item of news was found the l'resident's attention was called to it. Sometimes he considered it of sufficient impor tance to be worth reading, and some times he did'nt. His manner of expres sing himself when the news of upris ing was brought to him plainly showed thlat he had no idea of the desperate feeling throughout the State. On the previous night he had tarried long at the wine bottles of the Aztects and he found it atmost impossible to coin prehend the situation. We have very serious doubts whether the President has any clear ideas with reference to the situation in any portion of the South. If he has, why did he place the whole matter of sending troops South in the hands of Williams? The New York Times; organ of the administration, d:us briefly out lies the situation in Louisiana : There is open insurrection in a State, blood has already been shed, the recognized State government has been ovel turned by an armed mob, and if the Federal power does not in terfere, utter anarchy will very soon prevail. These are the facts, naked ly stated-but how much there is to modify these facts ! The people who have risen against the State govern ment have been ruthlessly plundered and oppressed; the governor who was turned out has abused his office, and the State governmeut which has tenmporarily been upset was a disgrace to the whole country. If we admit one set of facts, we most admit the other also. No man can honestly sur vy the condition of affairs without out 4isgust. The spectacle of United States troops being sent to New Or leans to restore the Kellogg gang to power may be pleasing to some peo pie, but the general public can only look upon it with regret. We dind in the New Orleans Bulle tin the following extracts from the B.ooklyn Eagle, which claims to have the largest circulation of any journal in the United States: The lawfully elected officials of Louisiana have, forestalled the pur poses of the oppressors of their State. They have turned over to the regular army officers, the buildings, arms and etffects wrung from the usurpers, and they have thereupon retired from power, leaving the State in military hands. It now devolves on the army officers to do that for which they were sent-which is themselves to reinstate the IGellogg crew of pirates in place. That.is a work which by analogy ex actly reverses the least savory occu pation of a scavenger. As it was plain that the "movement" was for effect only on the moral sentiment of the country, and that it was devoid of any chance for practical success, owing to the identification of Grant himself with the worst of villainies in the State, so does it become equally plain that the moral sentiment of the country has been profoundly touched by the movement from inception to collapse. We think the abductors of Charlie Ross are more charitably and tenderly discussed this day 'than is the admministration' which is %r-en thralling Louisiana, even in the minds of the men who raised it to power: All the world sees it in its unrelieved hideousness. All the' world knows that Grant is wrong and Louisiana is right, and we are willing to let that knowledge workout its results. As for the miserable cravens, rob bern, swashbeucklers and chawbacons "reiustated" in power, they raise to the bettors of no person's contempt. The "organs" which approve of their restoration hiold their noses as the gang emerge from their holes and pass again to power. If they do not find their heads in one county and tieir boots in another before long, I the most "loil' shrieker, who is not a riscal at heart, will himself be' disap pointed. The Louisianians endured with patience, uprose with courage and brilliant audacity, arranged their true government with moderation and honor, and easuccumbed to Federial brauality with dignity. Their moral victory over their despots is an al most sublime slpectele, and Lee was better off at Appomattox than his captor is this day, lightfing his cigar at the pyre of a State. It beconmes more than doubtful whether even Grant can. stomach his partners down I there, and his assurance of infamy, for Continuing in the wrong, because he started in it, is one of the certain ties of history already. A clergyman, who owned a farm, found hIis ploughman sitting on his plow, resting his borse. Quoth the clergyman: "John, wouldn't it be a good plan for you to have a good stub-scythe here and be cutting a few 1 bushes along the fence while the 1 homrse Is resting a shabort time ?--I "Wouldn't it be well, sir," said John, "for you to have a tab of potatoes in thle pulpit, and when they are sing ing, peel 'em awhile to be ready for thie pot " Western girls inveigle United States army officers out to take moonlight walks, and then the father calls around next day and demands in stant marriage or death. Farm and Household Column. COcKnoACnHES.-Mr. Lowery, the chief propagator at the Floriste dt Paris, has given to the lRevale Ilot i - cole his method of destroying cock roaches, which are found veay des tructive and annoying, both in green houses and dwellings. This plan i. to take a package of matches, and dissolve the phosphorus on them in a tluart of water, and make a paste with this water by mixing it with a pound of flour and six or seven ounces of sugar. Place this mixture where the cockroaches will most readily find it, and it will destroy them effectu ally. Hiow To Mraxn KxIVEs.--Most house-keepers have felt the need of a recipe for mending knives, or rather for thfsteuing knives and forks to their handles. The following mixture is recommended for this purpose in one of our exchanges: Mix together I pound of rosin and 8 ounces of sul phur, and keep it either in bars or reduced to power. Mix I part of this powder with half a part of iron fil lings, fine sand or brick dust, and the cavity of the handle is to be filled with the mixture. Heat the, stem of the knife or fork and insert it hot, and when cold it will be found tight. Cony MEAL Solr.-The American Agriculturist says: Corn meal soup is an establised institution on our own farm. We keep a half-barrel constantly full of water, with a little corn meal soaking in it. The horses are allowed to drink all they wish. We let them drink the first thing in the morning, and again when taken to work. When brought home at noon, they are also allowed to drink before being put in the stalls, and again when taken out, and so at night. By standing a few hours, the chill is taken off the water, and al lowing them to drink when brought in from work, does not seem to hurt them. If the meal gets sour, remove it and feed to the pigs. Fowls should never be permitted to have access to the horse-stable, nor the feed room, nor the hay mow. Their rooms should be entirely sepa rate from the stable, so that they may not always be ready to slip in whenever a door is opened; and that the vermin which infest poultry may not reach hones and cattle. It is a well-known fact that fowls of all kinds frequently drop a very sordid, offensive, clammy, viscous order; and when allowed to go on the hay mow, or in the feeding room, or any where in the barn, they damage more fodder than we are wont to suppose. We would as soon allow fowls to live in the kitchen, and to hop on the dinner table while we are eating, and to roost on our bedstead as to allow them to have free access to the horse stable and barn. Some horses are al ways afraid of fowls, and when one enters the manger, or rack, the timid horses will immediately surrender their entire right, however hungry they may be,.ta.thse lawless maraud ers. And after they have scratched over the feed with their foul feet, and s,neared a portion of it with theiy, filthy droppings, a horse mast be ex ceedingly hungry before he will eat his mess. Many a hungry horse has been deprived of his feeding of grain by a lot of bold, gallinaceous robbers that had learned when and where to till their empty crops with the feed o~f a jaded hore. Let gates and bars exclude fowls and pigeons from the doors and windows of all horse-sta ble.--N. Y. Times. BREAKt'As :ROLLs--Take a coffee cupfull new milk; two beaten eggs; half a cup of fresh yeast; a teaspoon full of salt; a tablespoonful of sugar; two tablespoonfuls of butter or sweet lard; stir in briskly enough sifted flour to make a stiff batter. They should be mixed in this way at tea time, and covered up to rise. Late in thie evening, when the dongh is light, .ould it out on the board and Iput back in the paIst, and cover again. In the morning tear off, but do not eut, in pieces of msuacient siae to twist up into rolls, workling it as little as possible; when they puff up, bake in a quick oveo, and eat them while hot.-Country Gent. We have used a wagon with wide rinwheels, and found it convenient on the farm, diminishing the draft over mellow fields, and in fact over all fields, for a narrow wheel will ct into quite a firm sod deep enough to add considerable to the draft,. The priieiple objection we found against at on the highways was the fact that, differing so much in width from those in general use, it could not ran In the bottom of the rutformed by them, but would have to make its own rut poin the sides of the othets, thus lain crteasing the draft. If all wagons, or the majorty of them, were of this charaeter, this diliculty -would, of course, Ibe obviated and wider and shallower ruts formed.--Rural Home. SUNDtRLAND PUDmo.-ODne cup of milk, one egg, oneand a half cups lour. Stir well together, bake in cups about twenty minutes, and serve wvith sweet sauce.-Cultivator.
