It is seldom that the people of Chicago, I have the privelege of listening to such a highly Snished orator as the gentleman wose name beads this notice. He is about Ave feet eight inches, and would probably turn the scale at ten stone. He t Is of dark complexion, dark hair, and g a bright percina gry eye, which seems to i taein at a glance t state ofmind of his s audienee, and appealing more directly to t the head than to the heart, reahesb his climax in sentences so telling and so beau- [ tifnlly expressed that the audience are s carried with him, and spontaneous cheers a and rapturous applause which frequently i burst from bis bearers showed how [ thoroughly he had placed himself in sym- * patby with them. His voice is not as so norous as many orators we have beard, but I the distinetness of his enunciation ren- b dared every word intelligible in all parts b of the bouse. His gestures are few and u graceful, and perfectly it keeping with b whatever subject be may have in hand. It He does not "paw the air." A morning a paper likens him to Dan Dougherty and a Wendel Philips rolled into one. For a a young man few bave attained the emi- b nesce h a h achieved, and since O'Con- Is nell's time but few Irish men have been ti listened to with more marked respect than It O'Connor Power. He has been in every b rostrum in Ireland, and has made the halls I of the British house of commons ring with a his denunciations of English misrule in si Ireland. With the exception, perhaps, of to the eloquent and gifted Isaac Butt, the ti father of the home rule party, no man oc- g copies a warmer place in the Irish heart d than O'Connor Power, and surely no man "' deserves more at their hands. The reasons p that he gave for remaining in the house of F commons to watch over the interests of a Ireland, until such time as a place was c prepared in College Green, where Irish ft legislators could meet in an Irish parlia- p ment, was masterly in the extreme, and the cheers which greeted the hope that el the day was not far distant when England is would do justice to Ireland showed how a how fully his apology was accepted. As has already been announced in the f MonxNiG STAr, our fellow citizens will soon have the pleasure of heating this dia tinguished orator. lie will lecture in St. o Patrick's Hall, on Tuesday, January 4:h, w on Irish Independence. d - - - b COTTON MILLS So Tri. Tl:e Seientific American gives four rea- o sons hy capitalists should invest in cotton t mills at the Sooth, to-wit: Labor is cheaper at the South than at the t North.t In consequence of a milder climate, the no cessary expence of living is lees than in New c England, as is also that of heating factory e buildlPgs.tc. I Coal is abundant in the South, and sheap water privileges canbe obtained in every dire tion. The purchase of the raw material direct from the producers saves the profits of numerous middlemen and long transporta tion. The Southern factory, continues the/ &ientifsw American, should buy cotton lt the seed, gin and then spin it without packing into bales. Some of the advan tages of such a system would be: The yarn would be stronger. Baled cotton cannot be prepared for carding withouthe t ing, and thus weakening the fibre to a greater or lees extent. There would be less waste. Frequent!y much catton is discolored and otherwise in jured by foreign sobetacces that have been pcked with it. At the North and in Europe t takes from 10N to 115 pounds of eottoo to make 100 pounds of yarn : and although the waste is not so great at the South, it is never the:'ee considerable. TLe cotton seed would be pressed at the same establishment, and the oil and oil c tke so!d. Tte interest on gin and gin houses, whic:h now are idle the greater part of the year, would be saved to the planters. Tte raising of eftton on small farms would be encouraged. The plantation system is not adapted to free labor, and it in steadily break ing up, but until it can be honestly sold in seedfew small farms will be opened inthe cotton section, for the reason that a man can not afford to buy and operate a gin, if he only plants a few acres of ootton. Better cotton and more per scre will be obtained on small farms than on large ones. It is not generally known that there is a large and prosperous Irish settlement in the Argentine Republic in South America. In one of the provinces, Buenos Ayres, there is a population of nearly 400,000, of which nearly half is Irish. The country iL exceedingly fertile, producing two crops of figs and potatoes a year, and 100 differ ent sorts of grass that grow only by great care elsewhere. It is a rich grazing coun try, and the most extensive farmers in the province are Irishmen, who hold immense tracts of land, and carry on a wool trade that rivals Australia. In 1869, they clipped 100,000 pounds of wool. The majority of the population are Catholic, but all re ligions are free, and some of the Pro testant ministers are salaried by the government. The Irish . settlers havre splendid hospitals, schools, and academies of teir own.--.ofton Pilot. In the past two years there have been some sixty murders committed in Cook County, Ill. Thirty-four murderers have been brought to trial, and the following disposition has been made of their cases: Hanged, I; sentenced for life, 5; for ten year., 3; for eighteen months, I ; for one year, 4; acquitted 9; nolle prosequi en tered, 3; waitingtrial, 5. In almost every case the crime was clearly proven, and in the majority of instances the circumstances were most horrible. Where is Piegan Sheridant A splendid edition of the" Imitation of Christ "is about to be published by Messrsr. Clady. It will have a preface by Mr. L. Venllot, and wiI be illustrated by M. J. P. Laurens, the first of living historical paint era. His llustrations form a commentary on the precepts or t~ e " Imitation" by means of sub.lets drawn from the lives of the Saints and of the Popes. There is a bull frog far:i in S'u:l.c.- - ern Wisconsin, thirty acrre of swar ; f-" d in, and the proprietor sr.-ndi ctlo;:a -a : the featherle-s bhirds to New TL k. rases Sase 1m1. The recent history of France demon strates most conclusively the position of blj the Pm Traders, that a redaction of dn- fat ties does not injure the manufacturing in lad terests of a eonntry, while it stimulates ba that country's commercial development. bo ton I60 Louis Napoleon overbore the ob- the feetions of the French Protectionists and goq gave France a system of Free Trade. Be- we fre the systemo had been fully perfected, Be the great calamities of which all men know sat fell upon the French; Napoleon and his ne. dynasty were expelled, buinessof all sorts wr was suspended under the pressure of terri- sty ble war and stern invasion; men were di- Tb verted from industry, valuable territory nee was alienated. immense debt created, the for whole financial system disordered, and ex- rem astly that oondition of things brought about nit which the Republican party in this coun- pr try decided could only be successfully en- 9,t countered by a fraudulent curreoey and a She prohibitory tariff. In France likewise M. wr Thiers insisted upon the enforcement of che his antiquated notions about Protection, bul bet after a brief trial these expendilete ral were indignantly abandoned, and Franee I began the work of self-restoration. Bu- a Lnes was resumed with a feverish activity, poj and the lost home market sought to be cot supplied at once by an increased foreign the market. There was no check to industry gal because people were poorer, territory was ses lees, and taxes higher. On the contrary, Wi these things dad not stagnate, they stimu- lea lated, becaese free scope was given to the -r blind natural instinct of man to repair ---e losses by increased exertion. There was tin an excess of production : but, instead of nal stopping mills and work, new channels of per trade were sought by which to carry off we the surplus. France began to consign He goods to foreign ports as she never had the done before, and thus, as has been said, sea ' by a strange freak of fortune, the im bee poverishment of the home market gave Ms renach industry a wider circle of relations, tre and the very misfortunes of the country I contributgd more to the development of sin foreign commerce than its continued pros- of perity would have done." in What arethe results They are simply wil enormons. The foreign trade of France, bee imports and exports, which in 185I amount- of ad to 5.500,000,000 franc, to day exceeds A J,000,000,000. From 1869 to 1873 the wb foreign commerce increased 1,000,000,000 any france. the of The Leisure Hour says: The metropolis or of the British Empire, the largest city the wt world ever saw, covers within fifteen miles act radius of Charing Cross, nearly seven hun- bo dred squaremiles, and numbers within these bel boundaries four millions of inhabitants. It ha comprises a hundred thousand foreigners str from every region of the globe. The port me of London has every day upon its waters a the thousand ships and nine thousand sailors. aSt Upwards of a hundred and twenty persons frc are added to the population daily, or forty yo thousand yearly, a birth taking place every ch five minutes, and a death every eight min in utes. On an average, twenty-eight miles of mi streets are opened and nine thousand new tal houses are built every year. In its postal districts, there is a yearly delivery of 238,. 000,000 letters. On the police register S there are the names of one hundred and Bi twenty thousand habitual criminals in- hi creased by many thousands every year. w' More than one-third of all the crime of the s country is committed in London, or at to least brought to light there. There are as K -many beer-shops and gin palaces as would, la if their fronts were placed side by side, cc reach from Charing Cross to Portsmouth. m a distance of seventy-three miles, and w thirty-eight thousand drunkards are an- m nually brought before its magistates. The S' shops open on Sunday would form streets ci sixty miles long. It is estimated that ti there are above a million of the people who A are practically heathen, wholly neglecting so the ordinances of religion. At least nine C4 hundred additional churches and chapels tl would be required for the wants of the people. B TIiR LAWS or DI;ersTIO.-The an S itary Jeeord says: " 1. Food for the sop A ply of the daily wants of the system is ii most rapidly and thoroughly digested t when taken early in the day, ere the ner- s vons and secretive forces atre exhausted by 1b toil. 2. Rapid digestion in the early a part of the day contributes to the immno- I diato demands of motion and innervation. Y 3. Foed for the repair of the continuous h wear and tear of the tissues is in less im mediate request; the completeness of its solution is of more importance than the rapidity, and it is best taken towards the t evening, when an opportunity is afforded a for its leisurely absorption during sleep. ii 4. The duration of digestion bears a pro portion to the quanity of food eaten. 5. t In youth the digestion is quicker and the stomach sooner emptied than in grown-up r persons. i. Rest before meals makes the I digestion more complete. Exertion im- e mediately before meals retards digestion, i and exertion immediatly afterwards de- I ranges it. 7. Sleep retards digestion, but makes it more complete. 8. Alcohol re tards digestion and renders it also incom pleto. 9. Earnest pre-occupation of mind I I retards digestion, and may even quite an- t nul it. IO. Water quickens digestion, - and encourages the absorption of fatty and saccharine matters; but its effect s on the complete solution of albumen is a doubtful. TlE REPUlsLI.tCAN8 AND THS RELIOIOUS QUtE TloN.--llashinguton, Dec. 10.-The Republican Congressional Campaign Committee have de termined to follow the President's leadership k upon the religions and sectarian questions. STwo or three weeks ago the Rev. Joe. P. New g man, the pastor of the Metropolituan Methodist Episcopal Church in this city whiob the Presi dent and his family attended, preached a ser mon on the Inquisition, Cranmer, Queen Mary, e and kindred topics. This sermon, with the late message of the President, has been printed Y in pamphlet form by the above-named com Smittee, and five hundred thousand copies of it 5 will be distributed all over the Union. nl ---. The only really powerful Scottish nobles are those who share the religious and pol f itical prejudices of the people, and the re e. mainder at once admit their loss of terri .torial influence and make a profit of . it by letting their without scruple to the t- highest bidder. The mass of the nation y has a natural affinity for the more demo y cratic element in English society, and thus f English liberalism comes very near being the national creed of all Scotchmen in politics. d In this world, we must laber. we must fi;ibht. We shall have plenty of time to rest iu all eternity. slulas sat sg--- s. of ho Among all nations the ballad has invari- th bly preceded the song. Our English fore- in fathers, i feudal times, shouted rude Il- th lads around the grossaing board, and chanted or bacchanalian choruses over their wassail- to bowls. Under the shadow of the holly and Sg the mistletoe, their deseseedana sang th quaint, but hearty Chrsltmas earols, which th were an improvement on the earlier ballad. to Bat is was not until the days of Qaeen Eli- th zabeth, when Shakespeare, Speneer, Sid- th ney, Beaumont and Fleteher lived and t wrote, that a higber and more graceful er style of versificauon began to be known. foi The sonnet of those days approximated in nearer to our ideal of a song than any on form of verse which preceded t. But it remained, however, for the poets of the nineteetath century to bring the song to its es present high degree. It is true that the fr Greek bard Anacreon, Petrarch, Horace,, t Shakespeare and others of the English ot writers, produeed songs as chaste and mi charming as any which are now inditel; to but these were exceptions, and not the mi rule. It is worthy of note that there is scarcely c0 a song which has attained any degree of lei popularity either in Great Britain, or in this in country, that has not been written within tr the present century ; and which has not fri gained its popularity within a period of TI seventy years, dating back from to day. stn With not a single exception, so far as I can th learn, the charming Scottish songs of Burns ca -whom I place at the head of song- writers y, ---obtained their popularity within a wi time somewhat less than the period I have is named. It certainly is posterior to this ev period that the melodies of Tom Moore, were first heard in England: that Thomas Haynes Bailey indited his love-lyrics for the boudoir; that Dibdin shouted forth his F sea ditties; that Barry Cornwall's songs became household sounds, or Carlee Mackay swept with a strong hand the 24 trembling chords of the lyre. It in within the present century-indeed, , since 1812-that Beranger, the song writer sr of France, published his first song; while, in our own country, every song of any note, tm with, perhaps, a few exceptions, has hi been written within even a narrower space of time. America tiumbers but few song-writers who have produced songs of-.any repute, L and it is the more to be wondered at, for the reasop that, as a nation, we are a band of singers. The babe with its tin rattle, or coral and bells-the ragged urchin whistling througi the streets-the idle school-boy with his jewsharp or rattling bones-the Pentimuental miss, the coquettish belle, and the dignified matron with piano, harp or melodeon-the brass bands which straggle through the streets-the philbar monio societies-the Ethiopian minstrels the itinerant organgrinders-and the love stricken young gentlemen who awake from their midnight slumbers bewitching young ladies, by warbling under their chambe- windows romantic ballads,-each, t in their way, attest the love we bear for music and for song.-Barry Gray in Manhat tan Monthly. . Goon ox GEa. BAKER.--Daring the last State fair at Macon, Ga, Gen. Alpheus 'r Baker, of Barbour, was -in attendance, ex hibiting hie cotton and selling seed. (It is well known that he has the best cotton seed in America.) After all the great ora- E tore, including Mr. Bayard and Judge Kelly, of the North, had spoken to the large concourse of people, Gen. Colquitt conscribed Gen. Baker and forced him to F make a speech. As is always the case when Baker speaks, it required only a few minutes for everbody to become much amused and demonstrative. About in the crowd enquires were made, " Who is that '1. " Where did he come from 1" etc. I A man who had met Gen. Baker and bought some of his cotton seed, replied, so that it could be heard all around, " Why that's B that confounded old cotton seed peddler." Among other good stories told by Gen. ( Baker was the following, which is the history of many firms in numerous cities: A Mr Smith went into business with a German. After being in business for about four or five years, they broke. A friend meeting the German asked him how it was. " You see, my friend Schmidt and I go into one business. lie had five thousand dollars and I had experience which I puts against his money. Vel, we go in on, two, four1 years, and we close up, when I 'srd do five thousand dollars and my friend Schmidt had the experience." Whiatever-may have been the degenera ation of man from the standard of petri I archal longevity recorded in Scripture, it is statistically certain that since the begin ning of the present century, at all events, I the average duration of human life has e been steadily increasing in all civilized countries. Aside from the many modern e instances of alleged centenarianism (which, even if they be rarely or never fully veri fled, show the frequent attainment of great age by individuals), there is ample proof that the " expectation of life". .of the whole community is much greater now than in the past generations. In d France a recent official report shows that the.average span of man's existence, which , was thirty-one years and three months ac Scording to the vital statistics complied in t 1817, is now thirty-nine years and eight s months, and a similar improvement is evi denced almost everywhere throughont the world. This elevation is principally due to the limitation of epidemic pestilences Sand the reduction of infant mortality which Sso fearfully diminishes tihe general average p of longevity; but a considerable part of it is a. unquestionably to be ascribed to the im r- proved sanitary conditions of adult life, as 5t regards both communities and individuals, i- and we may look for still further ameliora r- tions when governments and the public at ' large shall have learned to give proper pro d minence to the teachings of hygiene. t BIRDS TIlE FARMIR'S FRIENDS.--Not long ago, near Ronen, in the valley of Monville, the crows had for a considerable es time been proscribed. The cockchafers mc 1- cordingly multiplied to such an extent that e- an entire meadow was pointed out to me as i- completely withered on the surface. The of larve had pushed so far their subter be ranean works, that every root of grass hsd n been eaten, and all the turf could be rolled 0- back on itself like a carpet. The multipli us cation of insects isalmost incredible, but Ig our birds seem equal to the emergency. in Michilet says, "The swallow is not sat lstled with less than 1,000 flies per diem ; and a pair of sparrows carry home to their st young 4,300 caterpillers weekly; a tomtit, to 300 daily. The magpie hunts after thein sects which lie concealed beneath the bark of the tree and live upon its sap. The humming bird and the fly catcher purify the chalice of the flower. The bee-eater, in all lande, carries on a fierce hostility with the wasp which rains our fruit. A large a number of insects remain during the Win- s ter in the eggs or larva, waiting for the Spring to burst into life; but in this state they are diligently hounted by the mavis, the wren, and the troglodyte. The former m turn over the leaves whic', strew the earth, the latter climb to the loftiest branches of the trees, or clean out the trunk. In wet meadows the crows and storks bore the aground to seize the white worm which, for three years before metamorphosing into a cockchsfer, goaws at the roots of oar grasses.-The Animal Eiugdom. FRAxNuEss Ix Lorv.-One of the most essential things in love affairs is perfect frankness. Both parties should be frank true to themselves, and truthful to each other. How many uneasy and anxious minds, how many broken hearts there are to day, in which content and happiness " might have reigned supreme but for the want of frankness. Repentance inevitably comes for all these things, but it comes too late, and only when the evil produced is incurable. In love, as in everything else, truth is the strongest of all things, and franknese is but another name for truth. Then always be frank. Avoid misunder standings; give no reason or occasion for them. They are more easily shunned than IT cared-they leave scars upon the heart. w You are lees liable to be deceived yourself i when you never deceive others. Frankness is like the light of a clear day in which aG everything may be plainly perceived. HOUSE FURNISHING GOODS. FINEST GOODS IN THE SOUTH. Fi ISIDORE LEVYI. Manager with A.
