Keep Straight Aiitad.
Pay no attention to slauderers
or gossip mongers. Keep
straight in your course, and let
their backbiting? die the death
of neglect. What is the nse ly
ing awake at night, brooding
over the remark cf some false
friend, that runs through j-our
brain like forked lightning?
What's the nse ol fretting over
a piece of gossip that has been
set afloat to your disad vantage'Uy
some meddlesome busybody who
has more time than character ?
These things can't possibly in
jure you, unless, indeed, you
take notice ot them, and in
combatting "them give them
character and standing. If
"what is said about you is true
set yourself right at once; if it
is false let it go for what it will
fetch. If a bee stings you would
you go to the hive and destroy
it? Would not a thousand come
upon yon ? It is wisdom to say
little respecting the injnries you
have received. We are gener
ally losers in the end if we stop
to refute all backbiting and gos
sipping we may hear by the way.
They are annoying it is true,
but not dangerous, so long as
we do not stop to expostulate
and scold. Our characters are
formed and sustained by our
selves, and by our own actions
and purposes, aud not by others.
Let us always bear in mind that
"calumniatars may usually be
trusted to time and the slow out
steady justice of public opinion."

taKe pains to prevent an
official declaration either of
Hayes or Tilden." The Presi
dent ot the Senate has nothing
to do with it. If the votes are
counted, so many for Hayes, so
many for Tilden, anybody who
is capable of doing a sum in
simple addition will know who
is the President, whether the
President of the Senate speaks
or holds his peace. As a mat
ter of courtesy, he has generally
been tlie presiding othcer upon
such occasions and announced
the vote. Bnt that is a purely
ceremonial position. Ho is of
ficially President of the Senate,
directed by the Constitution to
open the certificates. There is,
however, no reason for depart
ing from the usual courtesy, ex
cept it bo supposed that he pro
poses to assume powers not con
ferred by the Constitution.
The place for opening .the cer
tificates and counting the votes
is jiot designated in the Consti
tution. The House of Repre
sentatives, which is tne larger
and more convenient liall for
the purpose, has beeu generally,
but not always, selected. The
proper place, however i3 the
Senate-chamber; for it is the
President et the Senate whom
the Constitution appoints to re
ceive and open the certificates,
and the chamber of the body of
which ho is the official head is
obviously the place in which he
should perform the duty. More
over, as no plaeo is prescribed,
and the duty is enjoined upon
the President of the Sonate7he
may unquestionably appoint tho
place aud invite the attendance
of both Houses. These are de
tails which have been settled
without difficulty hitherto, and
which should raise no question
now. Indeed, nothing but a
custom which is not uniform
can be urged m favor of the hall
of the House of Representatives.
The propriety ot tho case clearly
designates the Senate-chamber
as the place for counting the
vote.
The action of both Houses
will be narrowly watched every
moment until the final proceed
ings, and whatever looks like a
straining of power or the exer
cise ot qnestoinable authority
will bo injurious to the side that
attempts it. Sensible people,
and they are really the mnjorit'
this time, wish to see no depait
ure from the acknowledged
forms ot law. The question is
not one of party, but of institu
tions. Tho paramount duty of
the two Houses is to agree in
advance upon some rule'to gov
ern their action when the votes
are counted.
