THE INDIANA STATE SENTINEL, TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 1874.
THE EGOTIST. lie come Wore you with unbidden tread, Yith fur-ire eyes, half-way he appears; He nothing cart fur aught that may te said. Demanding only that you be ail ears. 'Ind me your earl." he cries, and asks no more, Though Ion? he vanU them (let this likeness pass.) Tke listener waits to hear the lion's roar, Ana hears iutead the braying of an ass. TVith brovr of brasand gutta-perc-ha tbroal, I which a tongue, three-pronged. Is deftly hung, He Moids lilt bugle to a rtngle note "A Mai" the key in which his song is sung. Yon hear the thunder of his mighty tones, ' Itecoanlini; wondrous deeds that he ha done; About almlKhty J, use eircuug aones. The Trent of bis conversation run.

Jrelssus-llke, he worships his own form. In Ann belief t hat he no grace can lack : Jf toward ymi for a space he seems to warm, Tis only when himself you mirror back. He sees no glow of genius in your speech. No shaft of wit can cut bis coat of mail. Ko brilliant play of words his aenses reach. And e'en the sword of sarcasm here aaust fail. Wrapped In self-conseioasness, his presence lies Like some dark inenbas upon your soul. Till all the uuahlne from your nature flies Us selfish hhad jw has obscured the whole. HOME AND FARM NOTES. The tanner should have something to sell every week in the year. To make men happy requires a great deal. Dumb brutes require only bodily comfort. Jive them warmth ar.il food, and they are blest. Western farmers are demoralized ly too much good land. They hardly know the pleasure there is in reclaiming and making Iraitful sterile soils. Yet in this very thing both enjoyment and profit may be found. Farm stock is more likely to do badly in an open than a severe winter, because the farmer trusts too much to warm weather. Wintering stock means waste with a great many. Because a man is a farmer it does not fol low that he must necessarily ignore personal decency, cleanliness, genteel habits, and a regard lor good manners. Some part of his werk requires a coarse and strong dress, out be has as good a right to use soap and water as the President of the United States. Speaking of bees at the late con ention in Louisville, Gen. Adair made some very in structive remarks in regard to the wings of bees. He shows that besides being organs of llight, are in reality lungs. The blood in the wings, however, is not confined to those tubes, but circulates like the sap in the leaves of plants to all parts ot them, and it is likely, is thus also aerated. He argues that the practice of some in clipping the wings of queens, to prevent them from tiy injr, away, is pernicious. t'oNVF.usATio.v. The Springfield Republi can laments the decline in the art of conver sation, which, it urges, should I cultivated in families. This would tend to develop at tachment to the home which is sadly want ing in many households, besides promoting the education of children. Conversation, as Ird Bacon says, makes a ready man, but what we wanfisnotthe glib fluency of mere t 1 . 1 a tamers, out tne expression 01 Knowledge and ideas. If intelligent and thoughtful onversation were studied and practiced in the domestic circle the effect would be healthy upon all the family. Many good rules of conversation are laid down, but two are indispensable, viz: Do not monopolize more than your share of the time to the ex clusion of others, and, secondly, when views differ, do not be offensive by impeaching the motives, intelligence or character of your opponent. . COFKEKl' LA ROE QUANTITIES Mrs. Ly man in th Trihunn has (riran a nlnuKU - , - ..-., " f- . . w u u IUI MM .. bint how to make good coffee for festivals and large parties: Parch and grind the col fee and put it into flannel bags, each holding about half a pound, sew them up tightly all round. When the festive time comes heat in a clean wash boiler as much water as will be required for the first making of coffee; when it boils throw in one or two of the bags and let them boil ten or fifteen minutes, more or less, according to the strength de sired. Then take them out. Add boiling water when necessary and throw in another bag of coffee, allowing it to remain ten or fif teen minutes as before. In this way the beverige will be kept aromatic as well as trong, and the bitterness of leng boiled cof f'ee be prevented. Winter Orxamets. In Moore's Rural ew Yorker this direction is given, which is a nice experiment for children to try: A . retty mantlepiece ornament may be ob tained by suspending an acorn, by a piece of thread tied around it. within half an inch of the surface of some water confined in a vase, tumbler or saueer, and allowing it to remain undisturbed for several weeks. It will soon burst open, and small roots will seek the water: a straight and tapering stem, with beautiful glassy green leaves, will shoot up ward and present a very pleasing appearance. Chestnut trees may be grown in the same manner, but their leaves are not so beautiful as those of the oak. The water should be changed once a month, taking care to supply wate of the same warmth ; bits of charcoal added to it will prevent the ater from sour ing. If the little leaves turn yellow, add one drop ot ammonia into the utensil which holds the water and they will renew their luxuri ance. Butter Science. In a late discussion David Moore, who has been a butter buyer for twenty-flve years, in New York, said: There are many essential rules to be ebserv ed in making fine butter. We must have Rood cows, good pastures, good clean water, clean stables, clean milkers, clean dairy room and utensils, milk kept at proper tem- Cerature, skimmed and churned in time, utter thoroughly washed so as to remove all impurities, then salted with pure Ash'on salt, and no other. Avoid slops about the mil Ic room, either out doors or in.- Cream is very auHceptible to foreign flavor.

Closely related to this is the question of wood for fuel, concerning which the frame Farmer remarks: To make the most of wood with the least expense, it should be cut and split when green, thrown in a loose heap, where the wind can pass through it, and when tolerably drv, piled under cover. It should not lie directly on the ground, for the water will not only wet the lower sticks but will extend upwards through severa layers. It is not well to pile wood in a building while in a ereen state, for it is al most certain to pass into the condition of rmrtial drv rot. In case there is no wood house, it 6hould be closely piled on supports and covered bv a temporary roof 01 boards. Winter is the time to prepare wood, and enough hhoald be prepared for an entire year. TRADE NOTES. Virginia has forty blast furnaces. The machine shops at Chillicothe, Ohio, ave all they can de. Ali the mills at Fall River, Massachusetts, will, it is thought, be running on full time by New Years'. The Canton (Me.) toothpick factory haa iust contracted for five hundred cord. of wood for its business. The Surveyor General's report of Maine shows that 179,000,000 feet of lumber were survejed there this year, against 246,000,000 last year. In consequence of the heavy government orders, the woolen mills at Lawrence, Mass., have started again on full time and with in creased force. Indianapolis. Ind.. congratulates itself that it has almost entirely recovered from the slight blow its business interests suffered. St. Louis Times. Savannah, Georgia, is to have a one-wheel street railway, and passengers will be ex pected to part their hair in the middle so as to preserve an equilibrium. In reducing the wages of employes to the extent of ten per cent, the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company treated all alike, from Superintendent down to the lowesfman. It is said that quite a number of coal miners, recently at work in the Pennsyl vania coal regions, are returning to their na tive land and collieries noidn'-Lngiana. A company has been organized at Denver, Col., to construct a canal from Platte River Canon, in the Rocky Mountains, to the'east em border of the State, at distance of 250 miles, at an estimated cost of 10,000,000. As an evidence of the iil effects of "strike" among laboring men, it is estimated by the Trov, N. Y., Press that each of theeightv- lour striking pmMiers at Burden s Iron works have lost $553 through their idleness. The tobacco crop of Connecticut of the pre sent year, though los3 in quantity than in previous years, owing to the smaller area devoted to the cultivation of the plant, is fully equal in quality to the famous crop of 1SI. Newburyport, Massachusetts, employs a large number of men to catch frogs for the frog eaters. One man has taken 1,000 and another tfOO this season. They are kept in tubs and fatted with meal and shipped to order. The falling off of Northern orders for lum ber, owing to the financial depression, has led to an increase of foreign trade in Flor ida. There are now six or seven vessels loading at Jacksonville for West India and South American ports. The coasting trade in Alaska is rapidly in creasing, and complaints are made that there is no correct chart of the coast. As there are upward of 20,000 miles of coast line, the work of surveying, if undertaken, will neces sarily last several years. Cotton and woolen mills throughout New England are very generally resuming opera tions, and there is a brisk holiday trade. Xhis revival is attended for the most part by a reduction of wages of from ten to twenty per cent. To this reductiou, however, there are some exceptions. The London Grocer reports a scarcity in the market of cloves, caused by a hurricane that swept over Zanzibar in April, 1S72, and destroyed the whole ol that season's crop. The clove plant requires several years to ma ture, and it is not expected that the losses of lo.'J can be met by new crops for some time to come, bat fortunately the world can do without cloves for a Beasen if speculation should materially increase the cost of this onejof many spices. Among the thousands who wear alpaca cloth, very few know what it is made of. The alpaca goat is a species of the llama, whose home is in the mountains of Peru. It lives on the coarsest fare, the scanty herbage of the rocks, and has a beautiful wavy coat of light chestnut brown wool, which is nearly a foot in length, very solt and plastic, and nearly as fine as that of a Cashmere goat. This is sheared off and sent to England, where it is sorted, woven, dyed, steamed, singed and turned into the market. THE GRANGERS' MEMORIAL. THEY ARE TO PETITION CONGRESS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OP RIVER TRANSIT. The following memorial, says the Chicago Times, is being sent out by the State Grange of Wisconsin, in pursuance of resolutions passed . at Watertown, Wisconsin, August 26, and at Keokuk, Iowa, last month. The same form ot memorial will also be issued by the execatlve committees of all the other States in the Mississippi valley, in a few days. Accompanying the memorial is a circular addressed to the secretaries of subor dinate Granges and county councils, urging the immediate signing of the same, the signed document to be returned to the sec retary of the State Grange by February 1 : To the Jfowrable Senate, apd.JZoitse of Ifrp rextntrUives, in Cnrigres Ait.nrmbleil ; The undersigned, citizens of the State of Wi-consin, would .-respectfully represent that ample means of transportation at a rate so moderate as not to be a burden upon the producers of the country has becom an im terative nxtfonal necessity, ani lastly de irtiirHfs BUCi'H'fpnlfon at' your fian-fsas will afford adequate relief; that the.in7pi:oTrment ol the n.uional water channels which'ha turo has. provided.. would secure-such relief to aVeri- tfrv'tft extent ; that the delay lb make rivfrs of a national character available f jr pubiie Us ha thus far .acted. -am! will con-ti-Hup.-..to..r a:t ..notonly -.hs'---an- iOb-sw.-aii'-ion . o .. commerce, .lut ,tn r the natare of a subsidy to 'private rT. . rt corporation,- at the expense of the önl'lif ; that Ojingi-ess, having b?mp!btecdn iroi of ihoso nuural thqrauV;4sKJu-rt..y respou-iiuuti ii tlim.Hre n4.,iu,i;nditoa to enable the-publie ist aail itn'4Tt'' tlieif en tife uXnln" fait we 'deMf? to cortne our retuysBtrtctJy' toMwhat we .believe vuuM not oalji c Sftlribu'te" most - largely . to thy? g-ihe-ral uonvenin"4 but which arecon titittsA to be' tbt unquestioned right and doty of ('onrrrevi to provi'-e. for.

A DIREFUL HISTORY. A BACKWOODS FAMILY OF THE OiIEN TIME THE LEWISES OF LIVINGSTON COUNTY, KT., WORSE THAN THE BENDERS. A writer to the Princeton (Ky.,) Ranner gives the following wonderful history: SomeÄrae between the years of 180.5 and 1S09, a gentleman by the name of Dr. Charles Lewis, with his family, moved from Vir ginia and settled on a military tract of land on the Ohio river, some five or six miles above the town of Smithland, in Living ston county. His family consisted ot his wife, three sons, Lilburne, Charles and Isham, two daughters, and some ten or more slaves. That part ol the county was then a wild, and its population sparse. The Doctor selected the place to build, cleared away the forest, and erected log cabins for the whites and blacks of the family, opened up a farm, put it in cultivation and gave his rosidenco the name of Rocky Hill. Iiis eldest son, Lil burne, was also a married man, he and his wife residing in his father's family at Rocky Hill. In 1807 the Doctor's lady died; soon after her death Mrs. Lilburne Lewis also died; they were buried at Rocky Hill; their graves were inclosed by a post and rail lence. The whole of the white family in their intercourse with the inhabitants had made the impression that, in pointof literary attainments, elegance of manners and ac complished demeanor, they had no equals in the county, and had occupied as high a posi tion and as great social advantages as any in their native State. It was thought, however, that the slaves were treated with cruel se verity. In lsofl Lilburne wis married to a young lady of the county. Miss Lettie Rut ter, her family of high standing, and herself reputed faultless in form and beauty and of prepossessing accomplishments. The Doc tor about that time left Rocky Hill with his daughter, and went to Salem, or that neigh borhood, leaving the farm and most of the slaves with his three sons, Lilburne having taken his bride there. It was soon reported that the marriage turned out to be an un happy one, Mrs. Lewis from some cause be coming extremely unhappy; it was suppos ed on recount of the barbarous treatment of the slaves. In the year 1S11 she gave birth to a son. On the loth of .December of that year, she noticed unusual deportment and private consultations between her husband and his two brothers. George, a half-grown boy, a waiter about the house, who had repeatedly run away when whipped, that evening was waiting on the tablu at supper, and let some article of furniture fall and break. Isham Lewis looked at the other two brothers across the table with a significant nod, and said, "That will do." This was noticed by Mrs. Lewis. Immedi ately after the meal was over, it being dark, the brothers left the house, repaired to one of the negro cabins, had A LARGE HICKORY LO FIRE Made, and summoned Goorge and all the rest of the slaves to that cabin. When all were in, the object was explained to them by Lilburne Lewis, to the effect that their diso bedient conduct had become such that it had become necessary to kill one of them that the rest might know their fate unless they acted better in the future; told what George had done, and that they were going to kill and burn him up. An ax was brousht in, George tied and laid on the floor and one of the negro men directed and forced to chop off each hand and each foot, then each arm and leg half way to the elbow and knee, and so on. until the body was reached. The brothers stood around with pistols in hand to shoot the negro with the ax if he failed to obey. The horror commenced when the first blow severed a hand, and the shrieks of the victim reached the ears of Mrs. Lewis. She became panic stricken with terror, until her cries were heard by all in the house where the murderous butchery was going on. The amputation proceeded as directed ; each piece as severed was caught up and thrown on the fire. Before life was extin guished the bead was chopped from the body ; then it and body committed to the flames. All remained in the cabin until the entire mass appeared to be consumed effect ually. The door was then opened, and the servants admonished that if any of them should ever whisper what had taken place they would be served in the same way. About two o'clock the three brothers left the cabin and started to the dwelling. On their way they were startled by what appear ed to them to be the heavy sound of distant thunder. In an instant the earth beneath their feet heaved ' and swelled, and shook with such violence that the parties could with difficulty keep from falling. Charles cried out, "Oh, brothers, the judgment of God is upon us!'' This was the first shock of the great earth quakes of 1811 and 1812 in the valley of the Mississippi, ihey hurried to the bouse, and lound Mrs. Lewis lying on the floor stupefied with terror. Oeorire, leinz a house boy.was soon missed by persons in the habit of visit ing the family. Answers to inquiries about him were not satisfactory, 'the other ser vants when interrogated expressed by looks that were interpreted to mean that they knew something that they would not tell Eventually, in a month or so after, a dotr was louna gnawing A HALF CONSUMED HUMAN FOOT Near the premises. A gentleman by the name of Josiah Hibbs, with others of the neighbors, in the absence of the three broth ers, searched the cabin where the tragedy was committed and found the burnt bones of a human frame. The Lewises were ar rested and gave bail for their appearance at the ensuing term of the March Circuit Court, at which Lilburne and Isham were indicted for the murder of George. In the meantime the relations of Mrs. Lewis, learning she was living.in great fear tor her safety, went after her and took her and child to her lather. The two Lewises indicted wee- gi allowed bail by the Court. It seems shortly alter X.ilburne-and Charles agreed to commit suicide within the enclo sure surrounding the graves of their mother and LilDurne s nrst wife. On the !th of April following, Lilburne made his will, and after disposing of his property, be made at the end ot it the two following requests: .,':. Bockt Hill,!

THE SCHOOL REVENUE. INTERESTING STATISTICS FROM THE OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUC TION THE APPORTIONMENT FOR 1873. The apportionment of common school revenue for tuition made by the Superin tendent of Public Instruction on the 1st day of January, 1S7, is given in the following table, showing the enumeration of children in each county, the total amount collected and ready for apportionment, and 'the amount appropriated to each county. The amount apportioned to each child in 1869 was fifty-two cents, in 1870 it was fifty cents, in 1871 it was fifty-two cents, in 1872 it was fifty-two cents, in 1873 It was fifty-eight cents. no. of Total col hlldien lectedand Coutles. bet. and ready lor years appor- Amount to each count 12,80 62 11,012 04 4,4)1 .TO 17 92 1,410 .-i6 5,041 ) 1.960 40 3,42. 74 4, W7 94 312 4.1 4,414 96 3, !J dO 2,4 VI ÖÖ 4.041 41 5, ti9 76 4.129 60 3,543 80 4, 1M3 76 3:53 60 5,!

THE ENGINEERS STATE THE CASE. HOW THE STRIKE BEGAN AND WHY THE BROTHERHOOD FEET, AGGRIEVED A CLEAR STATEMENT OF FACTS. To the rubUc; Our people are fully aware that a misun derstanding exists between the officers of the r., C. & St. L. Railroad Company and the locomotive engineers and firemen on the leased lines of that road. Also that this misunderstanding arose in consequence 01 a reduction in the wages of the engineers and firemen, in direct violation of a contract previously entered into between these par ties. We therefore deem it unnecessary at this time to enter into a detailed statement of the affair. Our object at present is to deal with the calumny and misrepresentations that have been set afloat against us with a view to weaken our cause with the public We are not unmindful of the fact, that, in our country no cause can prosper, however plausible, without that greatest essentiality to the success of everynterprise, "public opinion," and for this reason as much as any other, we have always en deavored whether on duty or at leisure, and particularly since the commencement of our unhappy relations with our employers to so comport ourselves as to commend the confidence and sympathy of our people everywhere. We regret as much as anybody theexistenceof the present complicated state of affairs, and are willing to bear any blame that an impartial public may attach to our actions; but we are not wiiline longer to stand idly by and see our good name and standing in society vanish before the biassed representations of those arrayed against us. Many acts of violence have been reported through the press which acts we emphatically depreciate, no matter by whom perpetrated. We are aware that many reports of unlawful pro ceedings are set afloat reports without the least foundation in anything that even ap proximates to the truth and attributed it to the locomotive engineers and firemen con nected with the controversy on the various lines of the road in question. NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR VIOLENCE. We hare taken particular pains to inquire into thes9 matters, and made diligent search to ascertain the truth. From our investiga tion we are enabled to substantiate the state ment, that whatever lawless acts have been committed can be traced to parties not in sympathy with us. We have it upon good authority that there are at present men in the city and elsewhere along the line of road on which the trouble exists, whose purpose it is to commit unlaw mi depredations and cnarge the same to the engineers and firemen, in the hope of turning public opinion against us andinlayorof the railroad company. Hut we have no fear in this matter; we court the most rigid investigation into all our pro ceedings, and are ready to stand or fall by the verdict of an impartial tribunal. We thcretore respect lully ask for a suspension 01 public opinion in our behalf for a short time, in order to enable us to cet the facts fairly before our people. In the meantime, we asure me puDiic mat we entertain no hostile feelings toward our late employers and should they need our services to jruarc their property, we are at their command. But we are not ready to sell our labor as locomotive engineers and firemen for a price which would virtually close the doors of our educational institutions against our cjul dreii and compel them to begin a life of drudgery without the first rudiments of common school education. By order ol Division No. 11 of the B. of L. E. CAUSE AND JUSTIFICATION. A WORD FROM THE ENGINEERS' SIDE REASON AND CAUSE. To the Editor of the Sentinel; Sir I see in yesterday's issue of your pa per a statement made by Mr. Frazer, General Agent of the Jefferson ville, Madison and Indianapolis Railroad, that the engineers had no cause to strike; that all the employes of the road had their wages reduced. How does the public know that the officers pay was reduced? It is very easy for them to make the statement,but s it true, that is the question, the men had a rigkt to strike? It is a poor plea to put forth that owing to the decrease in business they would have to re duce expenses. Does it not look reasonable that the men who are pulling the passengers and Ireirrbt over the roads should know when the companies are doing a good business or not? The olhcers of the road have broken their their word with the men, and it is just in them to resent the wron? that has been put upon them. It is not owing to a de crease in business that this has been done. The companies have taken advantage of the panic to cut the waces down, and never put them up again; and also to break u; the engineers' organization. So long as they act honorably they will have the sympathies of the public. F. 13. Maxwell. Indianapolis, Dec 30. The aspect of the strike was more tranquil Wednesday than it has been since its incep tion. Vandalism and lawlessness are things of the past, and no disturbances of any kind have occurred since those already recorded. There are no threats, intimidation?, or over tures from either one side or the other so far, A card has been written by Mr. W. II. Cuvkendall. ensnneer. tne com mitteeman who had the interview with Mr. Miller, denying the vereion and misconstruc tion of the conversation as puonsnea oy a certain paper in the city. The misconstrue tion was to the effect that he (Mr. Cuyken- dall) approached Superintendent Miller in behalf of the strikers, and stated that he was authorized to sa v that they would resume work upon the simple condition that the members of the committee discharged for leavin g their post of duty should be reinstated; and furthermore, that he stated that it any one else than himself (Superintendent Mil ler) attempted to run out the engine of Sun day afternoon passenger train, he never would have left the place alive. Mr. C. says in contradiction to this: "I can only say that I approached Mr. Miller in behalf ot the en gineers, and proffered their services to guard the property of the Company, but not to run their engines, as I had no authority what ever to enter into any suth negotia tions, andil emphatically deny that 1 ever even thought of tne remarks eaui 10 have been male." MrC. further states that the above a'ccdsatlon puts him in direct hostility with Mr. Miller; forwhoui he has ALWAYS HAD- TnrroOH1ISTpR5pARti -Aiid hedöds not wiiV' tö reflect any dis cfedit npon jim: In 'reference fö "the en- einAta-aiow-rt4loyed onhe roadi the en-r gineers statp that .Whenever tp.eygft up te , a ' " r-i . 1 : - J them they do ro!
