Plutarch's Humanity.
For ny part, I cannot but charge
bhis using his servants like so many
beasts of burden, and turning them
off, or selling them when they grow
old, to the account of a mean and un
generous spirit which thinks that the
sole tie between man and man is in
terest or necessity. But goodness
anoves in a larger sphere than justice:
The obligations of law and equity
reach only to mankind, but kindness
iand beneticence should be extended to
creatures of every species; and these
.still flow from the breast of a well
natured man, as streams that issue
from the living fountain. A good
man will take care of his horses and
dogs, not only whije they are young,
but when old and past service. Thus
the people of Athens, when they had
finished the temple called Hecatom
piepou, set at liberty the beasts of bur
den that had been chiefly employed
in the work, sufiering them to pasture
it: large, free from any other service.
ti: is said that one of these afterwards
ename of its own accord to work, and
utrtintg itself at the head of the labor
ing cattle, marched before them to the
Sitadei. This pleasedz the people, and
they made a decree that it should be
.Lspt at the public charge so long as
it lived. The graves of Cimon's
mares. with which he thrice conquer
.i at the Olympic games, are still to
Žze seen near his own tomb. Many
h]ave shown particular marks of re
gard in burying the dogs which they
mad cherished and been fond of; and
rimong the Vantippus of old, whose
dog swam by his galley to Salamis,
when the Athenians were forced to
ibandon their city, and was after
-.vards buried by him upon a proluon
t :ry, which to this day is called the
ghrog's Grave. We certainly ought
eot to treat living creatures like shoes
or household goods, which, when
worn out with use, we throw away;
and were it only to learn benevolence
to humankind, we should be merciful
ito other creatures. For my own part,
I would not sell even an old ox that
had labored for me; much less would
I remove, for the sake of a little
anoney, a man grown old in my service
from his usual lodging and diet--for
to him, poor man! it would be as bad
;s banishment, since he could be of
mno more use to the buyer than he was
ito the seller. But Cato, as if he took
a pride in these things. tells us that
w~hen consul, he left his war horse in
Spain to save the the public the charge
of his conveyance. Whether such
things as these are instances or little
ness of soul let the reader judge for
himself.-[From "Cato the Censor."]
A Pawnee's Bride.
NEW YORR, Aug. 21-Pushaluck,
the Pawnee Indian who ran away
from Buffalo Bill's "Wild. West"'
camp with a pretty young lady hail
ing from Newark, last Sunday, was
sound by Buffalo Bill's searchers
yesterday and arrived at the camp on
Staten Island this morning, bringing
with him Mrs. Pushaluck. The pair
were regularly married by a clergy
man in Philadelphia, and had taken
board in a house on Ninth street fre
quented by human curiosities. The
bJride has some $7,000 in her own
right and is respectably connected.
She seems happy with her choice and
w-ill go to the reservation with him at
the end of the season.
Unfounded Reports.
Butte, August, 28.- The rumors cur
rent in Helena about the closing
down of the Anaconda in consequence
of sales. pools, etc., are perfectly re
diculous. Only a portion-of the com
p)auy's mines are closed. At some of
the works operations are temporarily
suspended. The reports of.the Parrot
closing are absurdly untrue.. Super
intendent Gaylord says this afternoon
that they will not close at all: The
quartz mills, and Clark's Colusa, Col
.orado and Orford smelters and the
Butte Reduction Works are in full
blast The rise in silver is creating a
'much better feeling.
Will Bankrupt Frontiersmen.
Pierre, Dak., special: Frank Cat
tle, one of the most extensive ranch
maen on the Sioux reservation, arrived
to-day. He says the order from the
,commissioner of Indian affairs will
cause the removal of 6,000 head of
cattle within a radius of five miles.
It will also bankrupt a dozen fron
tiersmen. He attributes this work of
the department to the white men and
half-breeds who are working to ad
vance their own interests. The In
dians oppose the order.
Accident to Senator Evarts.
Wr tsnoR, Vt., Aug. 22.-A carriage
-containing Senator Evarts of New
York. Charles C. Perkins of Boston
and Miss Mathews, daughter of Judge
Stanley Matthews of Ohio, was over
turned this evening. MIr. Perkins
was instantly killed and Senator
Evarts and Miss Matthews severely
bruised though not seriously injured.
