A DOLLAR TO SPARE. The grass it is greener, the snow it U whites, The world is serener and life it is brighter; The rose has a hue of a deeper carnation, A lovelier hale envelops creation, And the goddess of fortune is smiling and fair When your wallet is fat, with a dollar to spare, O a foe to despair and death to all care Is that sum of all blessings, a dollar to spare ! O the plethoric pocket the big, bulging wallet, However you mock it, whatever you call it, Is filled with a balm, undiscovered in Gilead Fit theme for a bard like the author of Iliad 1 O the whole world is bathed.with a rose-scented air When your wallet is fat, with a dollar to spare; Strong to do and to dare, and a hard man to scare, Is the man who is blest with a dollar to spare ! O Age bright and sunny 1 O era propitious ! "When the poor will have money, unless they are vicious. Come on at a pace that is brisker and quicker, Don't stray, like a sot who is loaded with liquor; O list to the wail of a poor fellow's prayer. And make all wallets fat, with a dollar to spare! Come Age bright and rare, have a seat, take a chair ?air Age when all men have a dollar to spare 1 S. TV. Foss, in Yankee Blade. MASSACRED BY INDIANS. Terrible Fate of the First Settlers at Big Bottom. The first settlement in what is now known as Morgan County, Ohio, dates as far hack as 1790. A party of thirty six men, mostly young and unmarried, went up from Marietta, at the mouth of the Muskingum, and erected a block-house on the eastern bank of that river, near the southern line of the present county, on a broad, rich level, which they named Big Bottom. This was in the fall of the year; their pur pose being to winter there, hunt, fish, cut timber, have a good, jovial time among themselves, and bo ready for the spring culture of the land, which had been presented them by the Ohio Company for the purpose of having it settled. Like most inexperienced young men coming together in such a way, they seem to have been thoughtless and careless to a reprehensible degree. It was at a period when there was great uncertainty as to the course the In dians would pursue with regard to peace or war. The older and more prudent settlers at Marietta, many of whom were heroes of the Revolution and fathers of these young men, in clined to the belief that the savages would renew hostilities at the first favorable opportunity, and warned their kinsmen against the dangers of venturing so far into the wilderness at that season of the year ; but the latter had an overweening confidence in their own sagacity and ability to take care of themselves, and gave little heed to the advice of their seniors. Their first proceeding was to erect a block-house, it is true ; but they neglected to finish it and secure it with a stockade, and a part of their number chose to put up i j i . . -i . , . . caoms oi xneir own, ana to live in them at still greater risk, and no one, furthermore, seems to have thought the precaution of a sentry at ail neces sary to their safety. With these few preliminary remarks, we shall permit the tragic part of our story to be told by one who was an eye-witness and a sufferer a youth named Philip Stacy. "We had been some months in our new quarters," says the narrator, "and were having what I considered a pretty good time. I was young then only sixteen and ours was just the life to suit me. About twenty of us occupied the block-house, and did all our cooking at a big fire, built in the chimney at one end, and also served us for light, in rlace of torches or candles. After our day's work wor over, whatever that might have been whether hunting, fishing or chop ping, and generally ail three, for we usually divided off so as to take our turns at each we used to meet around this fire and each mess toast its meat, bake its cake, talk over the events of the day, discuss the weather, tell stories, crack jokes and so forth and so on, till time for turning in, when we would scatter over the house, some above and some below, and stretchinjr ourselves out on our skins or blank ets, with plenty of like covering, go to sleep and sleep soundly till morning. This was a wild, free life, that I could always have remembered with pleas ure, only for its horrible termination. "A few days before the awful events I am about to relate my father. Colonel Stacy, an experienced soldier, who had fought both the British and the Indians at the East, came up from Ma rietta, and seeing what he called our defenseless condition, reproved us for our negligence and gave us advice, which if it had been followed might have saved a good m.-iny lives, and perhaps have prevented the destruc tion of our settlement 44 4 Your careless mode of living here, my young friends,1 he said, is deserv- J ing of the severest censure. You seem to totally forget you are in an Indian country, far away from any protecting force but your own, and liable to be attacked at any moment. There are rumors that the Indians are gathering in force and will soon be abroad on some fearful expedition of plunder and deaih. For Heaven's sake, if you value your lives, set to work at once, and put yourselves in a state of de fense! Make your block-house as strong as possible, and put a stockade all round it; but, in the meantime, se- cure your door with strong bars, and close it every night at sunset, and post 1 one of your number as sentry, that , you may prise.1 not be taken by a fatal sur- 44 'That's just what I tells 'em, Colo nel,' chimed in Mrs. Meeks, a strong, masculine woman, from the backwooda of Virginia, who, with her husband and two children, occupied the block - house with us. he being employed by our company m the capacity of scout, I runner and hunter and she as general indoor manager, the only female yet in the settlement 'That's jest what I tells 'em for I knows the Injuns a heap the dirty, mean, sneaking var mints, that is al'ays a pokin' thar greasy faces around when you don't expect 'em! I tells 'em. Colonel, that some dark night, when we're all asleep, it's more'n like they'll pitch right squar' into us, and murder and sculp us afore we know what's what But ef yer thinks, Colonel Stacy, that my talkin' does a bit of good, ye're mistaken a heap. I mought as well talk to so many stumps; even my old man, Ike, has got so's he don't seem tokeeradern. Well, well, ef we keep our hair on till next spring, I'll be powerful disappointed, that's all.' t4Ihad been out hunting that day, and had been so fortunate as to shoot an old buck, a feat of which I felt quite proud. Around our usual evening fire were collected some eight or ten of our party, who were .variously en gaged in cooking, eating, and thawing their half-frozen limbs, for the night had set in intensely cold. Even the dogs had crowded up to the best posi tions they could get before the bright, genial blaze, and were alternately blinking at the fire and wistfully watching their masters for a favored mouthful. We had stacked our arms in a distant corner, and no one was thinking of danger. I was relating my exploits to my brother John, who seemed as proud of my success as if it had been his own; and Big Bill, as we had named one of our number from his immense size, was in the act of con gratulating me, as he sat before the fire, with a piece of meat in one hand, and a piece of bread in the other, when suddenly the door was thrown wide open, and a fierce Mohawk sprang in and held it back. 44 'Indians! Indians!1 shouted I, start ing to my feet 44At the same moment a terrific vol ley was poured in upon us, followed by the most appalling yells that ever mor tals heard. Several of our men fell. I saw Big Bill pitch forward, as if shot through the back; and another, who was bending over the fire, in the act of toasting a piece of meat, went right down head-foremost, into the blaze. Some three or four, who were not killed by the first fire, started up wildly, and would have rushed to their guns; but the Indians were too quick and too many for them; and falling upon them with their hatchets and knives, they cut them down and brained them before the' could make any re sistance. Mrs. Meeks, who happened to be standing near the door, and es caped the fiist volley unharmed, in stantly caught up an axe, and, with the true spirit of a border woman, made a tremendous blow at the savage who had first entered. The latter caught the gleam of the whirling ax, and dodged his head, just enough to clear his skull, but not enough to avoid the weapon, which came down with a cleaving force, right through one side of his face into his shoulder, dropping him to the floor, all bloody and hor ribly gashed. The next moment an other savage, with a surer stroke than her own, drove his tomahawk right into her brain, and the poor woman. without even a groan, sank down dead at the feet of the hideous monster. At the same instant her husband and screaming children were all slain by others of the murderous band. Only two now remained alive, my brother and myself; he in the act of ascending the stairs to the apartment above, closely followed by two or three of the yelling crew. "All this I had seen as it were in a flash, amid the greatest terror and the wildest noise and confusion, the whole seeming to my bewildered senses more like a horrible dream than a reality. By some providential means 1 had in the confusion gained a corner of the room, unnoticed by the savage butch ers, and finding there a large bundle of the skins and blankets used for our bedding, I instinctively dropped down and crept under them, trembling with fear, praying for life, and hoping thus j to escape. . 44For half an hour, it might be, I re- mamed there, in an agony of suspense j beyond the power of imagination to conceive, and which made the minutes seem so many ages. I heard the voice of my poor brother begging piteously for his life, almost instantly followed by the sharp crack of two or three rifles and a savage veil of triumph, , i 4? 4. i - - which assured me tnat his late was ' party now left alive. Then I heard j the Indians in the room at their hor- rible work of scalping, otherwise mu tilating, and stripping the dead, and collecting togclher all the arms and other articles of value to carry away with, them, and conversing anions: 1 themselves the while in tones that snowed they were highly elated with their successful foray, although their language I could not understand, Could I hope to remain undiscovered, concealed as I was under articles of c vnhmS nh oiwr non-A and fiber in me trembled at the thought! "But the terrible -suspense and un certainty ended at last The plunder ing enrafrfli nnnlrl nnft Tn:5 urmnt-Pf! and unappropriated, the skins and bhmkets of lheir dead foes and when x heard a few of lhem near me and felfc them QnQ aftep an ... t- nnvAl.infrH !hnv ,np t onm mended SQul to Gq believing my w mnmonf. xvn . h , last moment was at hand. "Suddenly, thinking longer conceal ment impossible, and irresistibly im pelled to meet the worst, I sprang to my feet, and stood revealed to their astonished gaze. A quick, slight start of surprise, and half a dozen toma hawks were raised to dispatch me. One hand of the nearest savage grasped me like a vice, and the other was lifted for the fatal blow, when impulsively I cried: 44 4Save me! save me! spare me!'- "God willed it so. The murderous weapon was arrested in its downward course, and a few quickly-spoken, im perative words stayed the hands of the others. My life was spared and I was a prisoner. 44The Indians having now glutted their vengeance and collected their spoil, proceeded to tear up the floor, pile it upon the dead bodies of their victims, set fire to the block-house. and retreat by its glooiny light into the dark forest They carried me with them into a long and painful captivity. I was claimed and adopted by the warrior who spared my life, and remained a prisoner among the sav ages for nearly five years, till the treaty of peace at Greenville, in 17U5, when together with many others of my unfortunate countrymen, I was re- stored to my liberty and friends. 44I subsequently learned that the block-house, owing to its construction of green timbers, was not totally des troyed by fire, and that the blackened and charred remains of its unfortunate occupants were found the next das by a party of horror-stricken friends from Marietta and given decent. Christian burial. Of all in the settlement at the time of the attack, only two besides myself escaped. 44Such was the destruction of Big Bottom an event that cast a deep gloom over the earlv settlers of that region for years." N. Y. Ledger. ROMAN GLUTTONY. The Waj Vitellius and Other Dignitaries of Koine Enjoyed Life The lavish expenditure of the Rom ans on the cama, the great meal of the day, was often fabulous. Viteilius is actually reported to have squandered 400 sestertia. about 3,228. on his daily supper, though surely this must be a monstrous exaggeration! The celebrated feast to which he invited his brother Lucius cost 3,000 sestertia, or 40,350. Suetonius relates that it con sisted of 2,000 different dishes of fish and 7,000 of fowls, and this did not ex haust the bill of fare, His daily food was luxurious and varied beyond pre cedent The deserts of Lybia, the shores of Spain and the waters of the Carpathian seas were diligently searched to furnish his table with dainties, while the savage wilds o( Britain had to bear their part in re plenishing his larder. Had he reigned long Joseph us says that he would have exhausted the wealth of the Roman Empire itself. JElius Yerus, another of these worthies, was equally pro fuse in the extravagance of his suppers. It is said that a single entertainment, to which only a dozen guests were invited, cost 6, 000, 000 sesterces G. 000 sestertia, that is or nearly 48,500. History re lates that his whole life was passed in eating and drinking in the voluptuous retreats of Daphne or at the luxurious banquets of Antioch. So profuse, indeed, was the extravagance of thoso times that to entertain an Emperor was to face almost certain ruin; one dish alone at the table of Heliogabalus is said to have cost about 4,000 of our money. Xo wonder these imperial feasts were lengthened out for hours, and that every artifice, often revolting in the extreme, was used to prolong the pleasure of eating, or that Philox enus should have wished that he had the throat of a crane with a delicate palate all the way down. One does not like to associate the name of Julius Caesar with habits of low gluttony that wouid disgrace a prizefighter, andypt, our memory (joes not piay us false, even he did not disdain to take emetics to return to his banquets with a keen appetite.

A CURIOUS RECEPTION. One of the Morning Ilatles of the Tollce j General of St. Peternbur;r 1 The traveler fn Russia inevitablj has to do with the police. In everj town where he stays a night he must report himself to the local police and I give up his passport, which is returned ' to him with the addition of strange in j scriptions and polychrome stamps, for ! which he of course has to pay. It is, however, only on leaving the Empire and for obtaining a permission of exeai that the traveler need present himsel! in person at the police office; the mere passport business is done by the hote porters. Why, then, did we find our selves one morning hunting for the headquarters of the Petersburg police in a street near the great Isaac Cathe dral? I have now but a vague souvenir. In traveling it is well tc make an effort to forget all that is disagreeable and all the formalities and red-tape annoyance which inay have caused one to lose sunny morn ings waiting iti bare ante-rooms. We had been, I remember, charmingly re ceived by all the authorities at the Foreign Office; we had been giver, wonderful documents which we were unable to read, but the very sight oi which brought ordinary people to their knees; there stilll was something wanting to make our happiness com plete, and to render our liberty ol action as absolute as we could desire. For this purpose we needed a docu ment from the Petersburg police, and so between ten and eleven one morn ing we discovered the entrance of the offices, situated in an ordinary house, of which the groune-lloor windows only are barred. We walked in, and found a number of mild-eyed policemen ready to oblige us. Really the Russians are phenom enally obliging and suave, toward foreigners at least. Through many bare and cleanly whitewashed pas sages filled with pale and sad lights we passed and then mounted a flight of stairs, at the head of which was the lofty room where the Police General received. To the right was a tall window: in the corner to the left a monumental porcelain stove; near the window a desk, and a clerk sitting on a high stool; to the left of the desk a door leading into the Police Gen eral's private ofiice; and, as one reads in the mise en scene of a play, 44two other doors, a bench, two chairs, and on the wall a portrait of the Czar.M There were several people waiting when we arrived. A big and ferocious-looking official, with heavy mustaches, medals on his breast and round his neck, military epaulets on his shoulders, and a generally martial air, received the visitors, inquired what was their business, and bade them wait or dismissed them. But thoso who waited might not sit down, for the military Police General, the Grand Master of the Petersburg police, had entered the room, and with him the civil Police General, the latter an amiable and smiling gentleman with diplomatic whiskers and a skewer ful of decorations on his dress-coat The Police General, very tail, slender, and grave in mien, with his two sub ordinates standing behind him, listens to each one in turn, while the others stand round the room silent and re spectful, great and small, rich and humble, all more or less equal before this man, whose power over liberty and even over life is terribly unlimited. The scene was interesting on account of the novelty of the place, of the strong character of the types, the chic of the uniforms, bearing and manners of the officials, the variety of the persons present, the mystery of the converse tion which we did not understand, but which we felt instinctively to be grave and perhaps tragic. We were partic ularly struck by one well-dressed woman in mourning, who with a pecu liarly winning voice and feline grace of movements and gestures presented a petition of some kind to the Police General while we were waiting. The General seemed embarrassed; the lady pleaded volubly; hner handkerchief wiped away from time to time a dis creet tear; her black cloak and he black veil thrown hack over her head set off the contrasting whiteness of her pale and delicate face. In the midst of her pleading, tiie other Police General took charge of us, and led us to another part of the building, where he gave us all we asked, and entreated us most courte ously. So we were about to go on our way rejoicing, but the lobby leading to ihe street was all in confusion; heart-rending cries and convulsive sobs interspersed with words of de spair and of supplication reached our ears; a woman in black was leaning against the wall; stalwart and kindly policemen were vainly trying to per suade her by words and gentle violence to go: from adjoining rooms curious and smpathetic faces peered out to SQ2 what was going on. But the poor woman continued to sob and plead, and finally fell to the floor shrieking hj-sterically. This woman was the lady whom we had left pleading with tlfe Police General. Her petition had been refused. Her life was broken. Siberia had irrevocably claimed all that she loved. Harpei-s Weekly. It is Venice, the city of canals, that has the largest floating population.
