The coolest man is the man who goes pas tiently about his work or his idleness, thinks its little as possible of the weather, drinks sparingly, discusses no question regarding the weather, tattlers himself with no cholera impossibility, and be haves in general like a rational person.

This year's address delivered before the puplic school pupils of Richmond, Va., consisted of an appreciative, discriminat ing and cordial eulogy cm the character of the 'first republican president. the emancipator of the negro Abraham Lin coln. If was spoken by it southern dem ocrat and is warmly commended by southern democrats. What a significant commentary it is upon tho rabid mouths ings of the Ohio republican platform! . There is not a more popular man in Indiana, to mention no wider ter ritory, than Vice President Hendricks, and be is . deservedly so for the reason that he 'takes care of his friends as a fair return for the manner in which tbey have taken care of him for many years. He is not afraid to take care of them either. This administration has no disposition to snub him, and on the contrary has the highest respect for him and his opinions but if there should be an attempt to do so he would resent it with the fire and indignation of a man who had sot gone beyond his prime. And he is right. The democratic party won the victory in the last national election, and it is its duty as well as its privilege to take possession of it. It is as proper for one set of men to want office as for another set to keep Of ' fice, and it is not less legitimate for one to desire a clerkship than it is for Mr. Hendricks ts desire a governorship, 1 senatorship, the vice presidency or the first office. Let us have this thing un derstood. It is civil service reform in the highest sense of the term. TH2 CONDEKHED DOLPHIS. The board appointed to examine the Dolphin, report to Secretary Whitney that she is uuseawortby .and totally unQt for the purpose for which slie was designed . She can't make speed, she can't fight.and she can't defend herself while running away. In order to fire at a fleeting or a pursuing vessel, she would have to send a ball -through "Social Hall,' one of - a hamlet of bouses on her deck, and in or . der to make her .a decent vessel for any - purpose she will have to be destroyed and built over again. In brief, she is a war vessel to be used solely in time of peace, and in order to make her safe in time of ' peace it will be advisable to tie her to her dock and go to sea in some other vessel Air. Roach will doubtless say she was built according to the plans furnished him; but the board say that the plans were few and that she was constructed in an unworkmanlike manner. Mr. Roach has, however, received the larger portion of the money to be paid for her if ac- . cepted. Will he return this mone; will he furnish a new and complete ves sel? Probably neither; and the result - will be a suit at kw, the end of which no man can predict. Thure is this to be thankful for, however our "new navy u not to be a navy warranted to accom plish Its own destruction if Secretary Whitney is to have his way about it. BERESFOKD'S WIFE. "You do it, Irene." said my father pleasantly; "you will consent to this mar : riage for my sake? 1 felt my heart grow numb and cold, ' and although I tried to speak, no words came at my bidding. It was horrible to me horrible! For a fearful sacrifice lay before me, irom wuicn 1 shrank back ap palled. It was this: an old story after - all ! My tather had became bankrupt; be lore mm was titter ruin; in one week time If help came not we would be beg' gars, f or mysen l carea little. I was young and strong, and full of life and hope; but for him poor old father! , We were ail alone an the world; there were but us two to cling to each other; how could I see him suffer? Poverty Beemed little to me, tor 1 was very hopeful, and loved Arthur Grey, and where one has love, one cannot be utterly wretched. Arthur would have come to my father " gladly, --with pecuniary assistance, but alast he was a poor farmer, and such help was impossible for him to oiler. s W talked It all over, Arthur and I, one love ly summer evening, and we vowed that no one should ever come between us. Ah, me! one knows so little what is in store in the long, untraveled road stretching out before us Into the untried future. It aeems so long; and yet "from the present, back tthe past, there is but a step to be made;" and though it seems long looking forward yet looking back, we say 'it is but a breath." Even while we were plighting our troth new,' end premising that, come what might, we would be ever faithful; and aaying all the fond, foolish words in the old, old fashion of lovers, from time im memorial, and which will so continue to the end of the world even then, I say, a .... ctoud was gathering fated to obscure our sky. Just at the most critical juncture in my father's affairs, Alien Beresford came to him, and offered to lift the heavy burden of debt from father's shoulders, and place Ihim upon his feet again. '. . ; $ have always liked and respected you, Carlingfprd!" he said, gazing into the old man's grave, troubled face, with kind ly eyes, "but I am not altogether unsel fish in my offer I Listen: I am worth two millions, give her to me, and while I promise to be to her loyal, loving hus band always, I also agree to settle cpon her 6i,e half my fortune upon the day that she becomes my wife!" My father bowed his gray head In si lence. It looked like barter; it seemed a sordid thing to do; and the Carlingfords were proud old family, and shame struck to his heart like sword . "I will tell her!" he said briefly. Then be sought me, and the story was repeats ed-pA pitiable tale- indeed. .. I gazed into his eyes. Poor father! he could not re turn my glance; for the first time in his long, honorable life. Warren Carlingford could not meet the clear gaze of his daughter's eyes, lest be should read re preach there". ,y ; . : 'This is the only alternate the last hope?' I queried sharply. He bowed his head. r . . "And I am Arthur Grey's promised wife!" I said slowly. "Father! father! nothing but wrong can come of this re quest, and yet Ood help me how can I refuse?" He caught me in his arms, aid strained me close to his heart, kissing me fondly, Poor old father! he meant to do no wrong, but the temptation was greater than he could bear.- It was a terrible temptation truly for him! I thought of Arthur my handsome,- manly lover; from Alia Beresford I shrank in repulsion. lie was man of middle age a misshapen dwarf but with a face of rare pathetic beauty. It seemed to me, as I gHzeii upon my own fair reflection in the mirror, that the sacrifice was monstrous. It would be a year or two before Arthur could make me Ins wire; he was exerting every euort to make a home for father and me; but I knew that, long before that day would dawn, the bouse of Carlingford would go down in ruin. And so, at last, believing that the sac fice was right, I turned from my lover's imploring words and shut my eyes to the still, white anguish of the face I loved so well, turned away with outward calms Dess, and the sacrifice was made. I was Allan Beresford's promised wife, and my heart was broken! After that 1 cared not bat became of me. The beautiful an- cestral home of the Beresfords was fitted p in princely magnificence for my recep 1 turn. - But I looked across the hills Iving green and fair in the summer sunshine toward the adjoining hill, where stood a modest white cottage Arthurs home, which was to have been mine. And I grew to hate the great marble villa, which was being refitted and upholstered in grand style for the bride the new Mrs. Beresford. lie did not trouble me often. From the hour that I laid my cold, sbaks ing hand in his outstretched palm, and altered brokenly: "I have no heart to give you, Mr. JJerescord; but it vou are willing to take me as I am, I will be your ife from that moment, - when he tooped and laid bis lips for a brief in slant reverently upon my brow, I had met him very seldom. He seemed to un derstand the misery which it caused me to watch the dumb love in his eyes great, sad, beautiful eyes so mournful and pathetic and he shunned me ac cordingly. So time slipped by. My fathers trou ble safely tided over, and be was pross perous and quite happy, save for the re gret and remorse in his heart for my sor row, which nothing could assuage. A silence seemed to lie upon our lives silence broken at last. A green and sunny strip of woodland lay just beyond the limits of our village, and thither 1 sometimes went when my trouble weighed hardest upon me. and my burden more than I could bear. I walked there one soft, summer evening; the red glory of the sunset paving a crimson pathway over which 1 passed listlessly. There were fierce desperadoes wild, lawless charac ters toaming about in the woods though of this I was ignorant. Ere I had gone far, I was accosted by a villainous looking ruffian, who coollv demanded my watch, and the diamond solitaire flashing on my finger in the sunset light, a silent reminder that 1 belonged te Allan Beres ford. Impulsively, I resolved to resist. was no coward, and I determined not to quietly submit to this pillage; I.turoed sharply about and fled back over the path down which I had come. ith a volley of brutal oaths the villain drew a revolver aud fired. In an instant more, I would have fallen dead or dyiug but a slender figure darted between me and certain death. I was caught in some one's arms and strained madly to. the loving heart ready to die in my defense. I felt back in wordless teiror; it wag Allan Beres ford, but even as I faltered bis name, he fell to the ground, the red blood pourin from a frightful wound. That night I was summoned to the Beresford mansion; he was better, the physician said, and was begging pitifully to see me. Once there, father broke the tidings, bowing his gray bead that might not ace my anguish. Allan hud sen for me, with the prayer that I would con sent to be bis wife at once. He had of' fered his life in my defense, what could do but answer yes. So, standing at his bedside with my hand in his, the solemn words were spoken and I became the bride of Allan Beresford. When it was all over he drew my face down to bis, and kissed me once upon the lips. "It is well, my love my love!' whispered faintlv. "Let me call you mine, my little wire just once, and then you shall be free! Irene, had I thought that should live, a drag upon your existence, 1 would never have accepted this socn fice! I have made you my own that I may bequeath to you my entire possessions, and no kindred of mine can wrest it from you, Bince you are legally mv wife. I d not wish to live, it is better for me to die." Be paused, and I saw a gray shadow creep slowly over his tace, and the baud in mine grew very cold. "Uod bless you! he murmured, my little wife bless vou!' He lay there very still and cold, and ere I could speak or cry aloud, he was gone, and I was alone; wedded and wid owed within a single hour. ,. It was found that when he had been brought borne, mortally wounded, he had made his will bequeathing everything toj me Diauing me marry the man l loved and be happy. Dear unseiiish heart! Through all the long golden years that have come and gone since then though as Arthur Grey beloved wife I am very happy, the mem ory of that noble life is ever with me noble life which was not lived in vain The symptoms of kidney trouble are generally a weakness in the back and loins, accompanied by a general feeling of lassitude, and great pain and difficulty in discharging from the bladder.

Jane 5.-Flas ware waving Friday morning from the tope of the princi pal buildings throughout the eity in honor of the formal reception of Bartholdi'a statue 'Liberty Enlightening; ine norm. The shipping along , the river , rroni and the vessels ia the harbor were gaily decorated i. with flags . and bunting in honor of the event. Ooe of the most no ticeable displays wa that at the pier of tbe French TransatlanHo Steamship company wharf, which was fairly covered with the flags of both France an.l America, grace fully entwined. The weather was warm and clear, with a cooling breeze. The early trains brought thousands of strangers from the surrounding el ties, and Broadway and tbe streets adjacent thereto were wronged with people in holiday attire, wending thoir wav to points from which a good view of tbe military and civic parade attending tbe reception of tbe statue could be witness!. The harbor presented a beautiful appear ance, studded with white sails of innumer able vacfats and numerous excursion boat, crowded to tbe euarde. awaiting the mov ing of the naval procession. Shortly after 9 o'clock tbe mayor, toe president of tbe board of aldermen, the municipal officers, the members of the re ception and other committees embarked oa pecial steamboatB and proceeded down tbe lower bay to the Issue. Arriving along side of the vessel, they boarded her, and at once raid their respects to the commander, and officers, and the mayor, acting at spokesman, bade them hearty welcome to New York. Tbe mayor then tendered them the hospitalities of the city, and invited them to a formal recep tion at tbe city hall in the afternoon. After the interchange of a few remarks the mayor and city officials withdrew, returning to tbe steamboat, which at once swung oft and took up position within a few nundrej yards of the Isere. At II o'clock tbe fort at Sandy Hook thundered fnrth a salute to the French flag, which was shortly after followed by a signal from Commodore Chandler s vessel notify ing the vmdf to form in line for tbe naval parade. The vessels foil into line as follows The United States steamer Dispatch, with Secretary Whitney anl Commodore Chan dler and staff on board; Uuited States steamer Powhattan, Capt U A. Beardslee; United States steamer Omaha, Capt Selfridge; United States steamer Alliance, Lieutenant Commander Durand ; the French flagship La Flore, Admiral Lacombe; the French transport laero, Commander I)e Saune; steamboat with the statue commit tee on board; steamboat with mayor and aldermen. Here followed a flaet of yachts of the American Steam Yacht club, among them Jay Gould's Atalanta, and the phe nominal yaoht Stiletto. In this position the vessels steamed slowly op the bay, receiving salutes from tbe forts at the narrows, Fort Columbus, Castle William, Fort Wood, and other batteries in tbe harbor. These were replied to by tbe French flagship La Flore and the United States vessels, while hundreds of steam whistles sent forth blast after blast Tbe noise at times was deafening. On arriving at her anchorage at BeJloo's island the Isere received a salute from tbe guns of the United States training-ship Minnesota, detailed lor duty at tbat sta Uon. This was also the signal for the breakup of tbe parade. The officers o( the French flagship and those of tbe Isere were then conducted to the bland on the steamboat chartered by the American committee, where they made a short inapec tion of the work now in progress on the? ped estai On the landing of the French naval officers at tbe island the "Marseillaise'' was sung by over 500 voices, composed of mem bars of tbe various French societies of New York and Brooklyn. At its conclusion the bands engaged for the occasion played several French and American airs. "Hail Columbia" and "Lib erty Enlightening the World," composed by Gounod, were then sung by the members of the singing societies, and the ceremonies were concluded by the firing of salutes from the forts and war vessels. Tbe Freuch officers were then escorted on board the reception committee's steamer and landed at tbe bat tery, where carriages were awaiting them and a procession formed, and marched up Broadway to City Hall park,- where it was reviewed by the mayor and French guests. y FORMALLY WELCOMED. f: After tbe review the gue&ts were formally welcomed in the aldermamo chamber hi th oity. Speeches were made by Mayor Grace, Mr. Frederic K. Condert, tbe orator of tbe day, and others. At the conclusion of tbe addresses, tbe French singing societies rendered several appropriate selections, after which a collation was served in tbe governor's room. This ended tbe ceremonies of tbe day, which passed oil without the slightest hitch of any kind, or anything cal culated to mar tbe good feeling prevailing. The French officials express themselves as greatly pleased with their reception. Mayor Urace's speech to the visitors was as follows: Of tbe many causes which, during tbe last century, operated in awakening cue peopi of Fnuiae. that bumiiur desire for libertv. which was to set all Europe ablaze, and which finally found orgauuce.1 expression in the constitutional assembly of 'Si, two were predominant one was the lit erary influence exerted by a school of writers, whose fierce blows shook to its foundation the fabric of absolutism so strongly reared by Louis XIV, and found an echo on this side of the Atlantic in the teachings of our own Jefferson anl Frank lin; the other was the example set by tbe New World in their suooeusfui struggle against the same absolutism which tbe English king sought to per petuate over the colonies. 1 be storie9 told by our allies on their return, of tbe brave deeds done and tbe difficulties overcome in the cause of liberty were eagerly listened to, and an enthusiasm was aroused whlob added the point and meaning of practical demonstration to the specula tions of French philosophy. From that time to this the bond of sympathy which united tbe two peoples, has never weakened. Washington and Lafayette I Their names stand for all that has been highest and noblest in tbe political history of cen turies, in tbe person of lrayette was embodied the spirit of revolt against the svsbtm of government of the post: in that of Washington the spirit of hope for the future a future of freedom which was to brine peace and prosperity to millions then unborn, while ia both were united tbat loftiness of purpose and unflinching courage In the laoe of nimcnni wniun are cue in dlsEinsable requisites of greatness. The splendid gift of the French people. whioli vou have hrougbt to our shores. therefore deeply eignifioant It is a pledge of the present existence of those friendly relations wnicn marx cue oom mon hi-tnry of both nations in tbe ' past, and is a pli ant ' augury of their continuance m the future. As it is to France, and through Franoe and the United States that the spread of popular government in Europe is largely due. so it ia but appropriate that an enduring monument at this gateway of the world's commerce should remind all tbe comers of - the fact, ; and the artist has caught the inspira tion of history. The conception of liberty enlightening tiie world is deeply poetic, Because it is aeepiy true, and be cause tne idea a a great one. its grandei demands Ha association with the gigantic in art, which has a beauty of its own. and beyond tbe canons of strict criticism.' May it stand as an . imperishable monument of tbe ideas with which it is associated, which are themselves immortal and unchange able. Mr. Frederick R. Condert made the ora tion and concluded as follows: ' . ,' ; How many problems in the hygiene Of the politics, light and liberty will solve. Let the light of a free press and free speeoh pour its ruddiness into the dark recesses never reached by such aeenctes before. Teach men before you puuish' thera; enlighten them as to their duties while you point out their rights. Show the world that the one panacea for the ills that human society has been groaning under and fighting during all these- centuries, is liberty liberty the friend of morality, of virtue, of truth, of honor, of learning; liberty tne foe of op pression, ot violence, or murder, oi coward ice; liberty which takei nothing from the rivee him all. even a remedy for tbe ins which a constantly changing and restless society will ever generate, This, let as all hone, and if our e-rea statu will nreach this lesson for aires to come in oui own peerless bay all will blea it, and lova it for tbe givers sake, and for its own. i1 Ae French Kinietee. f Washihgtow City, June 80.

Some time ago a letter was received by the adjutant general from a person in southern Illinois -eying that there was a blood-stained, bat tle scarred flag at the war department In Washington, which appeared to have form erly belonged - to the Fifty-third Illinois regiment and been captured by the Con federates in the lata war. May Is Uov- srnor Oglesby wrote to the department at Washington asking it such a nag were there, and whether its identity bad been dennltely ascertained. It so, he requested that it might be forwarded to Springfield, to be placed in tbe memorial hall in the capitoL Thus far. Governor Oglesby bas received no answer to his letter, and no in-1 formation whatever has been received re- I iating to the identity of tbe flag. Should this memento of the war be received at tbe adjutant general's department here, it is thought it will soon be recognized by some of the many hundreds of old soldiers that visit the memorial bail.
