When the angry passion gathering, in my mother's face I see, And she leails me in the bed-room—gently lays me on her knee, Then I know that 1 will catch it, and ray flesh in funev itches, As I listen for the patter of the shingle on mv breeches. Every tinkle of the shingle lias an echo an«l a sting, And a thousand burning fancies into active being spring; And a thousand !>ees and hornets 'neath my coat-tail seem to swarm. As I listen to the patter of the shingle, oh so warm. In a splutter comes my father —whom I sup posed had gone— To survey the situation ai:d tell her to lay it on ; j To see her bending o'er me as I listen to tlie j strain. Played by her and by the shingle in a wild and wierd refrain. In a sudden intermission, which appears my only chance, I say: "Strike geutly, mother, or you'll split my Sunday pants She stops a moment, draws her breath, the shingle holds aloft, And says: "I had not thought of that—my sou, just take them off." Holy Moses! and the angels, east thy pitying glances down, And thou, oli family doctor, put a good soft poultice on; And may I with fools and dunces everlastingly , commingle, If ever I iay another word when my mother wields the shingle. [Communicated.] A TRIP THROUGH BUTLER COUNTY. Me*xrx. Editor* —Having taken a ; trip through the northern and north eastern part of Butler county lately, I concluded to give you a part, at least, of iny observations, experience, &c., in regard to matters politically, finan cially and socially. I will notice each characteristic briefly as I pass along. I started from near the county line between Butler and Armstrong coun ties, in Allegheny township, and pro ceeded by way of Six Points. This is in the new Butler county oil territory of which so much stir is being made at present, although no large amount of oil has been yet found in close prox imity to the Six Points. Several build ings have been erected during the past summer. A grocery, bakery, lumber yard and some other signs of life and living appear planted around in the woods and by the roadsides. Byron Centre seems to be the larger attrac tion ns yet, but beyond a doubt Six Points will one day boom up as a place of at least local importance. The Byrom Centre oil belt will yet be traced westward into Butler county, and another Bullion will be the result. Already the eyes of the Bradford pro ducers are turned toward this promis ing field, and could the one-half of them get back "pocket whole," lively times would be inaugurated forthwith; but just as soon as they can get out of the Northern field "in shape" we may expect lively "wildcatting" at ieast in the northeastern part of Butler county. From Six Points we took the road to Annisville, passing some very fine improvements by the way; also I)r. A. W. Crawford, the; "head centre" of Republicanism in Allegheny township, aud a formidable one he is, too, as many a sorely defeated Democratic candidate will easily but unwillingly admit. The Dr. seems good for sev eral campaigns yet, and is us lively as any lad of sixteen years old would be under similar circumstances. Passing on we saw some of the improvements brought about by the oil business, in the shape of coalbanks, rig timbers, «fcc., which gave the country quite an air of bustle ami activity. Nothing of note occurred between Six Points and Annisville, but on taking a peep into the storehouses of Dame Nature we discovered that she hail liberally sup plied her friends in general and the hogs in particular with an abundanece of nuts, acorns and other wild mast. The farmers crops, too, looked as though they would pay for the last season's labor, especially the buck wheat, corn and "punkin" crops. From Annisville to North Washington crops about the same, but oh, the chestnuts ! It was chestnuts to the right of us, chestnuts to the left of us, chestnuts over us uml chestnuts under us, with acorns and hickory nuts by way of variety. We passed about a dozen boys and girls on their way to the stores loaded with chestnuts, which, one of them informed us, they expected to get about six cents per quart for in trade or live cents in cash. They might, get rich at that rate, if the chestnuts held out long enough and the stores continued to buy. At North Washington we saw M. W. Harper preparing a couple of the celebrated "Armstrong" threshing ma chines. He informed us that he was going to make a "Bee" to get his buckwheat threshed that, afternoon. Just like him! too lazy to thresh it himself and too stingy to pay regular hands to do It. No wonder he gets rich so amazingly fast, but as he <lo nated us a cigar we will let him off for the present. On the way from North Washington to Sunbury the nut business took a change from so much variety to a steady thing on acorns; acorns all the way and to spare; the hogs seemed fairly disgusted with them. Passing through the "Meals settlement" we were struck with the apparent enor mous crops of buckwheat. I say apparent, as we did not get. off to ex amine whether it was well headed and filled or no, but the way it made "bunches" in the field would put to shame a suppling ridge with the stumps chopped off high up. At noon | we arrived at the farm of Rev. •lames Coulter. Mis son, John <)., runs things and seems to make a success of it too. Dinner over, we repaired to the field and began an onslaught on the chest nuts ami succeeded in bagging (no pun [ intended) about a bushel and a hall in I about three hours. This was fun enough for one day, particularly as we I "fell" that the next week would be I mostly consumed in digging chestnut prickles out of our lingers. Some of j the infernal prickles are there yet ami s torment us daily. Next morning, after a delightful night's rest, we took the road north by way of Cant. Samuel Loudcn's for Six Points. Saw the old Warrior Captain by the way and had a few minutes chat with him. The Captain is the head centre of the Clav township Democracy, but frankly admits that, politically, things look very blue to him ; but ho seems to take times easy and to feel that "What can't be cured will be endured" some how. He says he has got along so far, and thinks he can stand another term of Republican rule yet. He has big crops and is likely to get a good round price for all he can spare, con sequently is happy and feels easy. The Captain is not the only Democrat that thinks so and will sa\' so, too, when cornered ; but as a class, especiallly the leaders, they love to find some fault somewhere, and if there only had come plenty of early frosts or blight, or earlier drought, so that they could have blamed John Sherman and his resumption policy, and the Repub lican rule with it, oh! how happy they would have been to-day. We proceeded to Five Points, thence to Squire John Smith's and on to his son Smiley's, where we found the pro prietor, squirrel-like, just depositing a load of shellbark hickory nuts in safe keeping for future use. Dismounting, we proceeded to take in the farm and contents. We found plenty of fruit, but, oh! the nuts a^ain! Hickory nuts and acorns, enough within a radius of one mile to feed all the boys and hogs in a county. The acorns were so plenty that they were lying on the ground touching one another, and the half of them not down yet; and as for the shellbarks, the trees were bending under their weight of nuts. In less than an hour we had "bairorrd"' nearly four bushels in the hulls, and hundreds of trees yet to hear from. This must be on John Sherman's account, and to please 'Squire Smith and his family, who, by the way, are all good sound Republi cans. We spent the night in this "nutty" country ; saw more big buck wheat and corn crops, and next morn ing left for Marion township, where we took dinner with our grandmother, Mrs. Mary Turner, formerly of Parker township, and mother of John M. and William Turner, of Parker township. The old lady enjoys excellent health for one of her age (eighty-four, we believe); smokes her pipe regularly and loves to see her children, and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren (of which she now counts twenty-six living) come to visit her. She has passed through many of the days and times that tried men's souls and women's too ; has never yet enjoyed a ride on a railroad and never till lately saw a train of cars. May she sec many happy days yet on earth. The farmhouse where we took din ner was surrounded with splendid apples, beautiful grapes, fall flowers, late peaches, ripe tomatoes, and lots of chestnuts on every hand. If this part of the country is not the land of plenty, where can plenty bo found After dinner we "took the back track," and in an hour or so reined up at the door of Mr. Adam Black, who, we found superintending a lot of lazy boys threshing buchwheat, and ho himself looking on and contentedly enjoying a pocketful of chestnuts. Though a good Republican, he loves nuts and fruits ami will lav down his ax, or hoe, or flail anytime for the sake of indulging his appetite. We also met Matthew McGregor, a regular '•juke the beetle" of ye olden time, but a life-long Republican, so we forgave him for borrowing our plug of tobacco to get a chew and cutting it in halves, then transferring one of the pieces to his own capacious pocket. Farm pro ducts here are pretty good. Crops this season have been pretty good so far as threshed out, except buckwheat. Mr. Black says his would have been an average crop if those boys hail not carried oil so much of it, after it wits threshed, under their tot; nails. We were of the opinion that a general foot wash all around might improve matters considerable. We put up our hofse for over Sunday, and, on inquiring, found the man of the farm, Alfred Black, absent on a trip to your town with a load of burned lime. The 1 iine burning business is still carried <>n to a considerable extent in Cherry township, and commands a ready sale always, as it is ol a very superior quality. Next (lay (Sunday) we attended church at Pleasant Valley ami met many friends ami old acquaintances; also listened to a regular scientific ser mon by Rev. Lawrence, but was sorry to learn that the Sabbath School had been allowed to die an ignominious death, just ono week previous to our visit, for lack of support. Prayer-meet ing was announced for 5 o'clock, P. M, but judging from the interest taken in the Sabbath School that it would.be a tame affair, we <1 id not attend; since learned that there were two leading members present. 'I he rest stayed at home to hunt hickory nuts, club chest nuts, and talk politics the balance of tht! day. We suppose this is their way of serving tin; Lord and their own appetites, especially the latter. In the evening we went to the M. K. Church at Anandale.but the preacher was "behind time" for some reason, and we failed to connect. Anandale is the home of 11. C.

SCHWARTZ. LETTER FROM MICHIGAN. MARLETTE, Sanilac Co., Mich.,") October 10, 1879. } Messrs. Editors —Leave Pittsburgh and travel to Detroit, thence to Imlay City on the L. H. & C. R. R., about 35 miles west of Port Huron, and you are 22 miles south of Marlette, which distance you must travel by stage. Arriving at Marlette you will be sur prised at the thrift and enterprise; two steam mills, two saw mills, one foundry, three planing mills, one woolen factory, and many other places of en terprise. There are now seven steam engines and ample work for all, and in the morning, noon and eve, the air is made vocal with the ringing of factory bolls and screeching of steam whistles. Another prominent institution is our graded school, which employs three teachers, the number of scholars en rolled being 250. Here a good educa tion may be had; and here let me say to ambitious teachers who have not the ability to teach at home and desire to go to some new country where the people are very ignorant, don't come to this part of Michigan, for you will find yourselves sadly mistaken, as teachers here will compare favorably with any place I have visited. But if you wish to enjoy yourself camping out and fishing, here is a good place to come. And hero let me tfive you ray experience in one day's fishing. We discovered that there were plenty of fish in the Cass river, four miles from here. We had no net, so we sent to Detroit and bought twine and had a gill net made, 30x8 feet, the meshes 1£ inches. So Bill and I started" for the Cass, launched our boat, set our net, and then drove the fish into it. We caught from one to three at a drive. All went well until we got three in, one being a seven-pounder. Then came the excite ment, and as it was my part of the work to take the fish out", I got in such a flurry that the boat came near cap sizing and spilling us both into the water. But we succeeded in landing the fish. In the evening, tired and weary, we strung our fish on a pole and carried them to our buggy, a half mile away. We counted and found that we had thirty-three, weighing seventy-one pounds. Well satisfied with our day's sport we returned home. The fish we caught were all pickerel, What Butler county citizen, with us, would not have enjoyed the sport ? If any feel inclined to visit us we will take them out fishing if they so desire. There are also bear and wild turkey here, and a short distance north deer are to be found. For a new country, this is a good place for settlers. Much land is for sale yet, although every week adds to our population. New land cau lie had for from §4 to $lO an acre, and land partly cleared, with rough buildings on, for about S2O. Yours, B. J. FORRESTER. GREELEY ON LAWYERS. [lndianapolis Journal Letter.] "Mr. Greeley," said Partridge, "this is .Mr. Denslow, a young attorney." Greeley uttered a short grunt of rec ognition, but did not even look around. 1, embarrassed, shrunk to one corner and took a chair. He went on around the room looking at pictures and what not, and in about live minutes, when his back was turned on me, and I thought lie had forgotten me, he sud denly, without looking at me, said: "Hem! So you're an attorney, are you ?" 1 confessed it. "I hate law yersl" he exclaimed emphatically. "I hate lawyers; they do more mischief than their heads are worth !" "I suppose they are a necessary evil," I suggested dcprecutingly. "Wholly unnecessary," lie insisted. "I suppose you will acknowledge," I said, "that they promote good order and remove impediments to good gov ernment." 1 thought the man was crazy. "Per haps yoir will tell me," I suggested, "how debts would be collected with out lawyers ?" "Don't want 'em collected 1 don't want 'em collected !" he squeaked. "If A lets IS have his property without payment I don't see why (', D, E, F, and all tin- rest of the alphabet should IM) called on to serve as police to get it buck ! No debt should bo collected bylaw. It's monstrous! Let u man trust another man at his own risk. Even a gambler pays his debts that he isn't legally obliged to pay, and calls them debts of honor; but men will put their property out of their hands to prevent tins legal collection of their grocery bills. Abolish all laws for tho collection of debt, and that would abolish most of your lawyers—good riddance!" SENATOR HI.AINK ON THK TARIFF.— I am like the old preacher in Mrs. Stowe's story of the "Tho Minister's Wooing," who was so orthodox that the harder they made the requirements of the church creed the bettor he liked them. They could not make them too hard for him. So it is with mo in re spect to the tariff; the ultimuto effect of u high tariff is to cheapen every ne cessity of American life. Let me il lustrate to you how it works. When I was in London some years ago, I took a fancy to a very handsome car riage rug, the price of which was £4. On coining home I found that thevo rugs of English make were selling in New York, after paying duty, at $35. Presently, however, an American man ufacturer took u notion to produce them, and when ho got under way and began to supply the market the price fell to sll. That is the wav u tariff operates. It sets capital and brains to work in our country, and soon compe tition and skill gives us a cheaper ar • tide than we can get from abroad.

THE SUPREME COURT'S DECISION IN THE CELEBRATED O'LIARA-STAOK CASE. The decision of the Supreme Court in the celebrated lawsuit between the Right Rev. Win. O'Hara, Bishop of Scranton, and the Rev. P. M. Stack, pastor of the Church of the Annuncia tion, Williamsport, is attracting a great deal of attention throughout the country, involving as the ease does the question of civil rights of Catholic priests. Rev. Father Stack is a regu larly ordained priest of the Catholic Church. In 1866 he was duly ap pointed by the Bishop to the charge of this congregation. He continued its pastor until November sth, 1871. By letter of that date Bishop O'Hara, the appelant, wrote to Father Stack, saying: "Rev. Sir:—Your adminis tration of the affairs connected with the Church of the Annunciation has been such that I feel compelled to re move you and leave the church vacant. And I now forbid you to exercise any priestly function in Williamsport, even to say mass. This prohibition binds sub gravi. You may call on me at Scranton and I will inform you of my further intention in your regard." On the same day the Bishop also wrote to Rev. J. Keeper, pastor of the Church of St. Bonifacius, in Williams port, informing him that the Sheriff had an execution against the Church of the Annunciation, so that it was liable to be sold, and enclosed him money to pay the execution. He fur ther proceeded to say, "You will also take charge of all things connected with that church, such as vestments, furniture, books, Sic., and keep them under your custody. They can re main in the house and church, but you will keep the key. You may baptize and attend the sick, but nothing else. I am much pained to adopt this severe course, but the state of things in that congregation is such that 1 would con sider myself wanting in duty to allow it to continue any longer." In pur suance of this direction Mr. Koeper took possession of the registers of bap tism and of marriage and a sacred vessel of the church, and also of the set of keys that were in the possession of the sexton, but not of the set of keys in the possession of the appellee. Afterward the latter opened the church, addressed the congregation and stated his purpose to contest the legality of the Bishop's action. About one week thereafter Father Stack applied to the local Court of Common Pleas for an injunction against Bishop O'Hara and a decree reinstating him in his pastor ate. The Common Pleas Judge decided that the action of the Bishop was unlawful, but, acting in a spirit of compromise, declined to reinstate Father Stack. To mark its sense of the illegality of the removal, the Court decreed that the Bishop should pay his own costs. Against this decision Bishop O'Hara appealed to the Su preme Court of the State. In the decision on the case Justice Mercur says: When rights of property are in question civil Courts will inquire whether tho organic rules and forms of procedure prescribed by the ecclesias tical body have been followed (Kopp et. al. vs. St. Mark's Lutheran church, of Butler, Kerr's appeal, cases not yet reported,) and if followed, whether they are in conflict with the law of tho land. Any rule or proceeding whereby a man's property is swept away from him without a hearing, trial or judg ment, or the opportunity for making known his rights therein is not accord ing to the law of the land within tho meaning of tho ninth section of tho declaration of rights. Brown vs. Hummel, 3 Barr, 86; McAuley's Appeal, 27 P. F. Smith, 397. Had tho appellee such a right of property in the revenues of his church and in his profession as to authorize a Court of equity to inquire into tho matter of his removal'( A man's pro fession is his property. The appellee was not only deprived of his right of property as pastor of that particular church, but he was also prohibited from exercising any priestly functions as a means of support elsewhere. Tho literal reading of the order for bade the exercise of such functions in Williamsport. Inasmuch, however, as he had been assigned to no other parish, the effect was to close the doors of every parish against him. Tho strong arm of tho Church was laid upon him. All means of support wero denied him, and a stigma was cast on his reputation. Tho sub gravi of tho prohibition was a reminder that his administration was of so grave a char acter that any disobedience to tho order of prohibition would be a griev ous sin. The harshness of tho Bishop's conduct was all designated in his let ter to Mr. Koeper as "this sevoro course." The act of the 16th of June, 1836, and its supplement of the 14th of February, 1857, expressly gives Courts of Common Ploasof the several counties of the Commonwealth tho su pervision and control of unincorporated societies or associations. In grunting injunctions, not only acts contrary to law may lie enjoined, but also those contrary to oqaity. Stoekdale vs. Ul lery, I Wright, 486. Then without reviewing tin; conflicting opinions as to the ecclesiastical power given to the Bishop to deny to a priest tho ex ercise of all priestly functions without assigning any cause, we cannot assent to the doctrine that the pastor's right of property may thus bo stricken down, and he prohibited from following his profession, without accusation and opportunity for hearing and trial. If it is not contrary to the laws of tho Church, which we are not prepared to admit, it is contrary to the supreme law of the land. Tho appellant has no just cause to complain of the de cree. Decree affirmed and appeal dis missed at the costs of the appellant.
