A tumble in the barometer is not an unmixed blessing in New York. It is true, it may help to keep our political blood cooled in the midst of this exceedingly exciting canvass but it bringrs sorrow to our poor who are not well provided at the best of times, and whose pressing wants in the bit ter winter days tax all of our charit able resources. We often read much of the selfish ness and hard-heartedness of the world, but I often think that the world does not get quite credit enough for the good it does. Charity has a pretty hard road to travel. In its path are all sorts of frauds, swindlers and dead beats, am not easily taken in. I have been afloat on the great world since early childhood. All the great cities of my own country and the princi pal capitals of the old world have been no strangers to my wandering feet. I thought I was up to all the g oames by which the unwary are taken in, and yet an old dead beat laid me out as nicely last week as if I had been feeding on vegetables and milk all my life and was as green as the grass that grows under my feet. It was late at night and I was passing Madison Square just above the Fifth Avenue Hotel. I saw a man leaning against the railing that surrounds the Worth monument. I had got close upon him when I heard a deep groan and 'saw a man sink upon the ground. I rushed to his as sistan-ce and sat him upon the curb stone and asked what was the mat ter? In a voice so weak that I could scarcely hear him, he faltered out "-I have not tasted food for three das. and he dropped forward heavily in my arms. My heart was touched. Where do you live, I asked? Alas ! alas ! he replied in a hollow sepul Ichral tone, I have no home; every door is shut against me; I'm starving slowly to death. A great big lump came into my throat, as big as an Irish potato. What country do you come from? England, he said, with a faint cry as he fell forward in my arms again. The tears were rolling into my eyes. Here was a fellow creature perishing in the streets for food and I had just come out of the Brtunswick full of good things. I had Ifive dollars in my pocket and it had been reserved to liquidate a small debt for which my creditor was anx iously waiting, but everything must; give away to a starving fellow crea ture so I passed over my greenback, telling- the unfortnnate wanderer to P) ITIVE NOTICE. .inip,' ]Jo/;) . iI/e(bte(I to tie !//(/Ci's<IP(ie. rinisi setle tie same by or before the 20th of".V oceiiber ie.f. otherise yIour accoi.Ys Irill be p/aced ini t/ie /iai</ of 01nI oJIIcrfor e%olhectioi-. <111(d go1it-ill #/ei no fIrtler credit in the FU '[Tm.

The budget this year is thirty even millions of dollars, it has been ut down to thirty-four millions; that, 3 to say that the cost of governing his city each year is about thirty ne dollars a head.

G RECOLLECTIONS. On the Ruff road, four miles from t own, is the house of Dr. John C. t lalfacre. This homestead has been n the family for years. The first set. lement of the Halfacres was west rom the location of the family home, p the eastern branch of Cannon ~reek, formerly known as Buzzard's ~ranch. The settlement was near a alf a mile up the branch from where t he Ruff road crosses the creek. here were two or three very fine h prings near which the signs of the ld homestead could be seen. The Lrst one of the family who settled ere was named Henry, and was the reat grand-father of the present own- r r. Dr. Halfacre. He was of German. amily, but whether the first of the amily who immigrated to this coun-. ry or not, we are unable to say, but re are of the opinion he was the first j f the name,who came to this country. o for can we fix the date of his settle- o ient on this place, but it must have a een during the war of the Revolu lon or soon thereafter. Mr. Halfacre eems to have been a quiet, indus eious, unassuming German who al- I rays strove to have plenty around a, im and something to sell. The Pro-. ibition movement was not of much l ower in politics, in those days. Half- g cre put up and run two stills at the t prings we speak of, as being near Lie old home place, where the corn, f each and apple were made to yield i 1any a gallon of the fluid once called t; gua vae. No harm was thought of it 1 those days, and the sight of a sot Lsh, whiskey-bloated, hog-wallowing runkard was a rare thing, and a ight never seen. The people had 1 ranger views in regard to this arti, g le in those days; they did not wanE d ny middle men. We never knew any h f the children of the first settler of h Lie Halfacre family. We can recol, l, 3ct of hearing of only two sons, the t rand father of Dr. Halfacre, whose ame was Henry, and a brother oft is named Jacob. There may have een same sisters, but we have not eard of them, Henry came into pos- c ession of the land, and about the ime of his marriage or soon after, ti uilt out on the Ruff road where Dr,~ lalfacre now lives. He married a liss Suber, a sister of Big Jake Su- ' er, who was once well known to all ur citizens. She was a good, mother -. kind-hearted lady. Everybody ked Granny Halfacre, she had un A oubtedly the best lungs of any wo- d ~an we ever saw. She could be heard a common conversation near a mile, nd then vow she was not talking ud, either. When the good lady ied she had the barrel she had made e er saur kraut in for over forty years, ri nd the identical rock she had used y o weigh or press down the kraut in he barrel. It was the one used the c rst time. Henry Halfacre was a prudent, areful farmer; he seems to have s een a very precise and methodical I aan in all his habits. He gave his r ttention mostly to farming. ie: uilt a store-house just across the ublic road from his house and sold ;oods there for many years. Every nody liked him and hand the ntmost 1: seek a shelter at once and get some- e thing to eat.

I don't wonder a that people's hear s are Iard Th,, 1 ,nly w-tmer is, tat anybl :y gives c at all. All over the city are holes for 1 d1stttute boys anli asyI :ns ft>r frieni- s less girls A lot of sIlf-constit .t(l c sharks profess so be the aitners of the public's charity. This is one of C the mno -t 1 -pi::bl forms '!o humlna t swi dling. Ca e after ease has been c exposed. some of them lunished but still this mercenary mode of plunder L goes on. The wouen who Practice L this piracy generally assume a sane- a timonious air and expatiate ,. he i beauty of charity, while they starve l: and torture the wretched children d whom they have inveigled into their s dens. r But it is pleasant to turn from those I infamies to the many worthy chari t ties with which our city is blest, e among the very foremost of which r are the various Catholic institutions s of the city. The Catholic Protec v tory, Father irumgool's school for c boys, and many others belonging to 1 the same denomination. They draw largely from the public treasury, but c the question is between giving it to t them Or devoting it to the building s of prisons. II:re they are well ted. well housed. well clad, well attended v to morally, and physically and in- i tellectually. To their honor, he it : recorded, tl.ere are no complaints of : starvation or ill-treatment among the c wards of our Catholic institutions. t Decency, good order, cleanliness. dis- < cipline and excellent moral trailing t characterize them and make them models for similar institut:ors a throughout the wor:d. t The inst.tutio!s devoted to the care of girls are all presided over by Sisters of the different orders-sweet, patient, cultured women, who serve Heaven best by attending these poor motherless. fatherless and homeless waifs. t Father Dlrumgool's school is filled I with hoodlums, hundreds of whom i have been picked of the streets, reg- t ular Arabs. outcasts, and jshmnaels.f Once within thle influence of this worthy old p)riest they begin to rise.( I think he likes to tackle tough cases I just to see ho0w good a man he can make of the most unpromising ma- t terials. But it must not be thought that ~ charity is con! med to the Catholics.~ Some of the l 'rotestant institutions1 are not surpassed in the world. WVhile if 1 had the space I would E willingly mIention the most promi- ~ nent; there is one which I cannot pass without a word of praise and Lhat is St. John's Guild. There are many blessed charities in-our midst but none more bless -d than St John's C G-uild. It has the especial good for :une to stand well with all classes. ~nd any person entrusting their alms ~o its charga knows they will be well ~ bestowed. With sympathies that ~ 2ever fail it is still the most syste- t natic of charities, and disbursing many thousands of dollars in the rear it is not often deceived. Though ~ 2ominally belonging to the Episco- r >al c: urch, it is by no means denom- ~ national in its charities. It is as ready to relieve a Jew, or Turk, if t ;he case is worthy, as the most Ortho. r iox believer. All through the sum ner its labors among the children of ;he poor, and thousands upon thou-1 ands of them are carried to the sea side and others are provided with C 2omeb; in fatct, it never wearies of ~ loing good. The Jews and Ger- 8 nans have spl:ndid charities. The C Jews being particularly helpful. But this weck we can think of 3othing but politics. On Tuesday r'ammany pain'ed the towvn red. Whatever people may think of the arat Sachem John Kelly ? whatever 2e takes 1,old of he does with a will, ~ rnd when the order went out for the ~lans to come in, they came. If the s ~ensus of the city could have been ~akt n in Union Square on Tuesday ~ aight you would not have thought i ~hat suich a thing as a Republican existed on Manhattan Island. Four ;tandis were erected on Union Square ~ -the one facing Broadway being1 wr: darly fine. Cleveland badges1 were hlick as tile autumn leaves, and .f ev-ry man who wore them votesC stra' t for his Excellency, the Gov- - arnor, it will make it exceedingly ively for Mr. Blaine. Though at the1 >usi.ess men's celebration the day >efr. the town was alive with Blaine 'nen and in this confessedly Demo 3rat'e city it is a wonder where they ~ ill come from. - No fear of New York wanting fj :andidates for Mayor. We have ;hree all willing to be elected. Grace, the nominee of the County t Demnocracy-, has been Mayor and ar very good one he made. He is ana Irishm.n by birth and a merchant I >f wath. Hugh Grant is rich, ca I pablo .and willing; he is the nominee g af Tammany with a good chance nf 1 Man-.Iunting in Siberia. Sorry, indeed. even when death doe Rot come to put an cnd to his existence is the lot of the convict who has suc ceeded in e:capino, from the mines c Eastern Siberia. WVthout resources < any kind, he must beg or rob his wa ba~k to Russia. T he. alternative c seeking employment is one which ofte has disastrous c:)'-e.1uences. The con vict of the lowest type regards the Si berian colonist a< an i:n erior, and has saying which descri.es him as "blin for three days a te: b:rth." But th colonist has his revenve. He works th supercilious conv:ct le a beast of bui den, and gives him a: 1 ttle rest and a little food as possible. When wage are demanded the colonist has an orig nal way of satisfyin; his laborer. Th money is pa'd without demur, but be fore the convict can get clear, he fall dead, kil!ed by a bullet from the gun c his cruel eanployer. Th:s method c payment is some imes carried out on large scale. It is adopted in the cas of vagabond labor rs who, having fip ished 1-heir autumn work in the tield: return to the ne&ghbor:ng village to b paid off. The wages are forthcoming and the labo:ers allowed to depart wit their hardly earned money. But the have no sooner gone than the peas ant farmer assem .les his neigl bors, and ha,in. provided ther with horses and ire-arms. the whol party sallies forth in purs it of the vag abonds. The ret'ring laborers ar speedily overtaken; most are killed o: the spot, all are robbed. the recovere, money being divided between the far= er and his confederates.

Froi observation and conversation wit Ipractical and experienced farmei we have come to the conclusion the this country can never be truly pro. perous with the lien law, nor withot it, until the cultivators of the so Iraise their own supplies. Tf they do this they will be ind Ipendent of the lien law, and it ma stand upon the Statute book foreve and do them neither good nor hur But with the present system of fan ing the lien law seems to be, an probably is, a necessity of the time: -If we plant cotton only, we mus -have credit, or get credit by son > means to enable us to go on, and I enable us to get credit the lien la becomes necessary.

Thank God for the comforting and Lencouraging words of all pure mind. a ed writers; poets and novelists, who. s. ever they may be. How often after a Iday of care and toil or despondency, t perhaps, mechanmcally we take up a paper and, listlessly glancing it over, e our eye is caught by some brighe g passage that seems just to suit us a just what we needed to clear away h the mists and give new strength for the morrow. Little do those writers know the value of such words-the t help and comfort they bring to our s burdened, sorrowing hearts. It may Lt be the written experience of some il heart, that seems so like our own; and we feel that ours is but the com mon lot of mortals. Nature is the - same everywhere; we live, we love y or not, we are happy to-day, sorrow. r ful to-morrow; life is made up of tt. clouds and sunshine, storms and i calm. I wonder if many of us ever d realize what a grand thing a storm is ? 3. That "the voice of the Great Creator t speaks in that mighty tone ?" And e afterwards, in place of the freshness, o the brightness and the gladness, w "life's highway" would offer only -e heat and dust and barrenness, if the i"sunshine always gleamed." An-d y shallow-hearted creatures would we :a- be if nothing ever troubled the deep ie waters of our soul. "Joy is transient, 11 sorrow alone is laating," wrote some ione, and while not strictly agreeing with hina, it is true, in so far as the e. impressions left are concerned.
