The corruption of the Roman
Empire culminated when the em
pire was put up at auction and
Luocked down to the highest bid
der. That wa., done in the openi
day, however. In this country the
Government is ignominiously sto
len by the secret ballot manipula
tions of sneak thieves. It is worse
:han a public auction, because the
sthal is accomplished under pre
tense of holding a popular elec
tron.
Said Cicero : "I he ballot is'dear
to the peiple, for it uncovers men's
j;tcs and conceals their thoughts.
It gives theim the op,,portunity of
votiing as they hke and promising
ill tlat they are asked." But the
great RIoman lawyer had not con
',rivel of sua'h a political nmos
.rottity as a returning board, which
_ivea the people to understand
thi:at their ballots are worth abso
iutn iv nothing. F

Lord ! Lord ! how this world is
given to--marrying! Mr. Fred.
May is now to apt.ear in the char
acter of a bridegroom, having suc
cessfully demonstrated his tadlcuts
as a I rother. The lady of his
choice is M:ss Stevens, daughter of
- Mrs. Paran Stevens, an heiress by
right of inheritance and a hlbe
because of beauty. Miss Stevens
has spent touch time abroad, and
-her manners have all the culture
that evnes from travel and associ
ation with the best society of for
eign capitals. They will make a
hba:lsome couple : Mr. May is an
Adonis, and Miss Stevens has a.
Sfine sympqthetic presence. When
I the famous tableaux were given at
Sthe Union League Theatre, a sea
son or so ago, Miss Sttevense im
personated Egypt, and the quaint
magnificence of her attire made
Sher look lhke another Cleopatr:.
T''his young lady came very near
Smarrying the Earl of MIontrose,
and might have done so, save for
a question of marriage settlement.
The Stevens estate is a large one,
but it is said to be tied up for the

As it has been extensively reported by G
rival sewing machine companies and
their peddlets. that the malnifotture and F
s.lc" of the GROVER & BAKER SEW
ING MACHINES had been susptnded,
and the mnachilnes andt the parts could no to
longer be obtained, I beg leave to state Pt
that the business of muanufacturing the ,
machines has ONLY been changed, and cr
that the supply will be larger. and better, 1l
and the sale of these Celebrated Ala- "
chines more vigorously pushed than ,
ever before. The popularity of the li
GROVER d BAKER Machines is hard se
to overcome, and it is only by such is
,meains and misrepresentations that many tl
of its rivals even effect a loan df their at
machines.
