VICE OF QBUICBLIHG Since the da when Adam and Eve were expelled from Paradise, discon tent seems to be the normal condition of the human famtlv. If there ever was a time when men and women were perfectly happy, we have no account of it. But while this apparently in nate and chronic disease apiicars to lie of such rcMpectable origin, it has the faculty of distributing itself into de grees which are more or less distinct to their character and inexcusable'in the influence they exert. Grumbling, al though a mild form of the malady, is perhaps the most vicious and virulent offshoot of the whole brood because it is so utterly incurable. It is no ex aggeration to say that the chronic grumbler is a est all the world over. He takes as many shades audi hues as the chamelion. At one time he is a political factor at another a domestic curse; and under all shades and dis guises, a social imieaaoe. Neither at I norae abroaa.does he ever meet with :i - a,oett ana aenected vision, Providence nas committed strance and inniimera ble mistakes society is founded upon uiiivuauic principles reunion ls a I.t 1 - ! creature of the imagination, or if he agrees to admit its nuritv and the sav I ing graces of the atonement, he does it with a sigh of regret that so much confidence has been wasted upon a sys tem so imperfect, and consoles his heart with the reflection that if he had only had the direction of Providence, he could have arranged these things so much better than theDeitv has done. But it is at home in the privacy of his domestic affections that the chron ic grumbler comes out in his shining colors. He is here a human exclama tion point of astonishment and indig nation. In his mind, the world, and especially his own family, is in a con spiracy to outrage his sensibilities and assail his veins of what is right and just. He finds fault with his wife lectures the children, abuses the ser vants and rails against mankind with such an air of injured innocence that the heart involuntarily turns towards him as one of the greatest martyrs of his age. In society he is perpetually stumbling over abuses and running up against crying evils. Humanity shud ders at this good man's wretchedness, for nine times out of ten our chronic grumbler is a veritable Pecksniff. He steals the livery of heaven to serve the devil in. Yet his piety is apparently so genuine that very few people can be fonnd to doubt its sincerity. That it is not sincere, however, a moment's reflection ought to convince every un prejudiced observer. A person who is always finding fault must make his selfishness and self esteem a criterion of merit. A man who pursues his own happiness at other peoples wretchedness has none of the qualities ont of which pure and generous Chris tians are made ; his mind and body are. instinct with selfish and unfeel ing brutality. In fact, taken in any guise,, a chronic grumbler is both a public and private nuisance. He Is an incubus upon his family and an outrage upon the peace and good order of society. In early days these scolds were put in the pillory. The old Puritans could not be deceived by their mock pretentions to piety. The person who delighted in other people's misery was given some of his own medicine. It ought to be so again. There is perhaps no evil with which society is so afflicted, so great as the chronic scold. SOUTH PASS JKTTIE8. There are recent telegrams from New Orleans, stating that there has been, and is now a steady improvement in the depth of water in the channel and in general availability of the South pass for purposes of commerce. A noticeable Jeatare in this direction is the following announcements of arriv als and departures : "Port Eads, May 31.-Arrived ; British steamship Borussia, jfrom Liv erpool, via Coronas and' Havana ; German hark Oagle Fascbe. from Bre s; bark Enrique, from Havana. Sailed: Steamship Alice, steamship Hudson, schooner John Atwood, bark Andre." "Southwest Pass, May 31. No arrivals. Sailed: Brie Florence. Oh tht bar, bound out; Ship Ex pounder. This shows that the bulk of com merce arriving at aad departiag from New Orleans is taking to the new pass isst sad of the old one, aad is the strongest possible indicatioa of the en tire success of Capt Eads' great enter prise. The time has come when no more important consideration can be brought to the attention of the Western farmer than is involved in this question of the success or aosuooess of the jetties. It hss been previously shown im the Bajqo that Westers trade fa seekfaf amorketpeysie traasaartatioa alone nearly as much ae the producer re (vives for hw grain. The cost of car riage under the new and the old condi tions will nearly double to the farmer the value of everything he produces. It is a fact shown by yean of disas trous experience that no farming com- muiiity can afford to rely on railroad carriage for the Importation of its grain. It casts too much, (' - oiivey - ance by water has always been low ana wiuconiinue 10 neso. uu sucn unrivaled natural commercial avenues as Uie Missouri and Mississippi afford - . 1 11 is me sneerest ioiiy loininK 01 seuu- ing the grain of the West by wav of xr it t r 1 - . . New lork for shipment to Europe. But even if these considerations were equal, there is another advantage by the Southern sea route which cannot I lie too deeply impressed on the farm - era of the West. It is that the route from New Orleans to Liverpool is freer from dangers which menace a sea voy age than the one by Labrador and Nova Scotia. On the Southern sea route there are no rocks and icebergs to encounter no adverse winds to de lay navigation and assail the cargo. The rate of insurance alone, is twenty five per cent, less by the Southern sea route than by the Northern route. These are facts which cannot be known at once, but which will gradu ally impress themselves npon the minds of the people. No community j is more vitally interested in cheap transportation than ours. The wealth and the industry of the country are so inextricably connected with it, and as it is secured or lost will the profits of production accrue or be lost to the til lers of the soil. The Bazoo has fre quently recurred to the subject and proposes to keep an eye to it iu the future, for the reason that it considers it the most important matter that has ever been brought to the considera tion of the fanners of this country. Ml CRT FB3M ISRAEL. A heart-rending plaint has come out of the Republican Israel, and Cephas weeps and refuses to he comforted. He lifts up his voice and wails : "The Bazoo is the Nebuchadnezzar which hath devoured me it hath crushed tne it hath made me an empty vessel it hath swallowed me up like a dragon it hath filled its belly with my delicates i. e. (the patronage of the First National Bank and the M. K. &T. railroad) it hath cast me out." To be more specific, we subjoin the following extract fiom the Sedalia IFedty Time (of date Thursday) : "Since the officers of the First Na tional Bank have taken their position in the front of the Republican party, to influence the best patronage of thin Congressional District, we would solic it their patronage for the Time, a Re publican paper. Hitherto the Bazoo, a Democratic , paper, has been their favorite. It is doing their job work, and the princi pal Sedalia job work of the M. K. & T. It is perhaps unquestionably true that the First. National Bank is the leading factor of Republican poli tics in Sedalia. It possesses brains and These are influences which are always felt. But that it has undertaken to control the patron age of this congressional district, is something that the Bazoo does not pretend to know anything about. If true, however, the Republican- party is to be congratulated that its patron age is confided to hands at once so dis creet and patriotic It is certainly to the credit of the Bank that its officers are wise enough to appreciate so excel lent a paper as the Bazoo, and if they continue to read it they may rely upon obtaining from its columns the latest news and everything of interest in the field of legitimate journalism. If, on the contrary, they find that it is no longer an equivalent for the amount of their subscription, they are privi leged to drop it. The Bazoo is no pub lic pauper or party incubus. It has won success because it deserved it It has never been a pensioner upon public benevolence as the tooter of a party born. it expresses the views of its publiisber, and is indiffer ent alike to the praise or blame of individuals or political parties. It these qualities possibly which has se cured the isazoo so large a patronace. It stands upon its merits, and views with the same contempt that other people do the patient ass who, in hope of reward, shoulders the sins of his party; or the political Pecksniff who wnm iot pmru n cnamv in irte omu yards of successful politicians. It is more than probable that the Bank, like the railroad, has its work done where it can bs executed cheapest and best. Individuals and corpora tions usually pursue this course. If they are moved to impulses of charity taeir gratuity w generally bestowed ia another way. It is, however, generally understood that hanks and railroads are not poli tkaaas; aad the Tiwtr has perhaps overlooked the fact that the stock holders and directors of these iastitu- tioas weald net like ta sea them verted into a wet nurse for a sickly party otcan. The osscers mav ha Bs- Mhfican useatimeat ; hut the iasti- tattoss are net political Jsaaets whose mission in lite is to suckle the ass colt of the TTstra. Weekly Bazoo. SEDALIA, MISSOURI.

General Hanling nay that considering the severity of the weather during the spring on railroad, he found them in fair order.

LOVE AMD CUBBIES. A Tounjc Gsntleiaan Climbs a Trsa to Get a Ripe Bunch or Chsrriss, and Slips on a Snaggy Limb An Anguish That His Sweetheart Couldn't Console. A few evening nine a well known gen tleman alHitit lnwii, visited his .sweetheart, ami shortly after his arrival it was proposed they should go out into the yard ami pick some cherries.

It is no harm to any one, if, in the meantime, hi tongue wx busy with the soft music that always glad dens a young girl's heart. And among the blushing June roses, and beneath the fruit laden branches of the cherry trees, his gen tle words took a tender pathos and his hopes grew radiant as a dream of beauty. Bat even love cannot always supply the place of cherries. They picked and ate from the low, hanging branches, but the fruit was scarce oa the under bouglis, and the richest clusters grew out of reach, al though be even TUTOR! TO OCT THEM. "Oh, how I do wish I could get that ex quisite bunch," exclaimed the lovely girl, her beautiful eyes flashing wih eager de sire. "They are indeed luscious," but hU eyes were loking in the direction of her lips, in stead of the cherries. "Oh, how arc we to get them? and a she glanced around in search of something that would aid them, and finding it not.her lace clouded with disappoinement. "Perhaps I might climb the tree," sag- gested the young man, never dreaming that hi filler would lie taken as serious. "To be sure vou can. I never thought of that. It is so easy for a man to do those thing. 'flits wan taking a fellow at his wonl with a vengeance. Rut it wa-t too late to recall a proffer that some premonition of evil teld him was going to end in misery. He had on tight pant.', and they fitted like the skin. Ills coat, too, was not suitable for such aa exercise, yet heeouM never think of taking it itr in the presence of a lady. It wu aa unfortunate idea, taken in any shape, but it was too late to back out, and he prepared to make the trial. Perhaps some ink ling of tliMINii MIX hail crossed the mind of the pretty temp tress, for a laughing ripple curled the cor ners of her pouting lips, and played hide and seek in the dimples of her chin. The woe-hegaiie look of her lover's face the shadow of the dread he could not suppress might have appealed in his behalf, hut just then her upward glance caught sight of the tempting cherries, ripe and full, which i-cemcd almost hungering to be eaten. "Oh, Mr. .make haste and get them for me; for indeed, indeed I must have them." Thus urged, who could falter? Not a lover, certainly. He Imnnded from the ground and reached the first limb without any difficulty. From there it was but a step to an outhanging branch, from which the cherries could be reached with ease. Rut that was the fatal step. Near the limb wa a snag projecting from the body of the tree, the remains of a limb sawed off the previous year. The winds and the rains had hardened it to the consistency of iron, and when the false step was taken, and his foothold gave way, that snag intervened with terrible effect. He started down with AX AWFITI. CRASH, but the snag was not to be set down on with impunity. It caught him by the seat of his pantaloons ami held him securely He waved in the air like a wet rag hnng out o dry. When he started to fall his lady love screamed and clasped her hands over her face to shut out the sight. Per haps visions of a mangled farm, crashed is the heroic effort to get her cherries, ixshed before her eyes in a single glance of horror, and passing away left her faint and breath less, lie that as it may, she looked up with a face WlllTK WITH TERROR the next instant it Inshed hotly, her eyes danced with merriment and a peal of girl ish laughter rippled oat in the air. Imagine a young man with his body des cribing the arc of a circle, his coat tail lung over his head his feet dangling la the air his face distorted iwith aa I expression of misery too intense for any companion emotion the entire situation being sastaiaed by some invisible bat re lentless sabstaace ia familiar proximity to the seat of his pantaloone. Ia other words, a yoBng ana who in his rapid and involan- tary descent from a cherry tree has hang the seat of his breeches over a wag aad is unable to get loose a sort of ANIMATED FENM'LCM.

A Ssrrant as Kasw Her Bosiasss. A lady on Third street has beea greatly troubled with colored servant girk. Alter discharging several for incompetaacy, she found a treasure who could cook to per fection and manage affair without cos stant supervision. TXiighted to be re lieved of the constant oversight which had beea necessary formerly, the aew "girl' had matters pretty much her owa way. Is a few days, however, it was evident that the largest pait of the family took their meals in the bara, if oae judged from the quantity of victuals that found their way thitherward. She "was married," she said, aad then asked permission to feed her mas. This was gives, aad the only differ ence observable afterward wae that the man eat ia the kitchen instead of the bars. Soon another young mas was added to tha kitchen family. This "was her son." The domestic had so maay things to attend to that she acquired a habit of leaving the house immediately after breakfast, throw ing a cloth over the uncleared table, and oaly coating back just ia time to gat din ner. After dinner she would absent herself 'till time for sapper, after which she wm invisible till morning. It so happened that the lady concluded to leave town for a day or two, and calling the girl made 'her promise to stay at home daring her abuses aad attend to the work faithfully. This was done, but no sooner was the mistress out of the house, thaa the holiday com menced, and all the darkies ia town were at home ia all parte of the hoase. The bureaus aad wardrobes aere ransacked, aad their contents speedily adorned the panoas of the jubilant freebooters. The family who were left at homo foaad themselves miana their meals aad the cook, bat css trived to exist until the lady returned, aad oae ot her first acta was to call to account the faithless servaat, aad inform her that she might ia future stay away.aad then aad there commenced a clearing up, that left but little ia the hoase. Those articles that were not ia proper coaditioa to suit the womaa, were dumped into the wash-tab aad subjected to a washing, aad then bundled ap aad uaceremoaioasly take, away, the astoaished owaer standing by, aad too astounded to remonstrate. Judgs Hill's Opiaioa. A correapondent of the Missouri Jfrpua irwii, writing from this city, says that ia an interview with Judge Hill ia refer ca to the Brownsville horror, the Judge had stated thai "there were ao groaadn ca which the charges were predicated.'' If Judge Hill said aaythiag of the kiad, he stated rAsi aus not true. There may bs ao law to prevent such aa oleosa aa was committed at Brownsville, but to say that there are "no grounds oa which the charges are predicated,'' is aa assumption which neither Judge Hill or aay oae else ia justi fied ia making. There are a great maay good lawyers who entertain the opiaioa that such aa oMeaceas was committed at Brownsville m 'punishable by ths lass of this State, aad it is barely pomiWa that it will be amda to .ppaar so ia spite of ths fact that a criaaiaal Jadgt, wheat duty it is to see that the laws are viatica ted, eater taias the opiaioa that so groaads exist tor complaint.
