A Day as a New York Hack-Man.
"Heigho, McGreer ! what in the world
are you swearing about so furiously ?" I
asked, entering the livery stable of the
above named person, amid a volly of
oaths that niiht have shocked his Satan
ic majesty. - -
"Oh! Good-morning," replied the man;
excuse me, Mr. Morris. I was talking
rather too strong, perhaps ; but the fact
is, I am in a desparate strait. You
see Mr. Elmore's horses are both sick,
and he has sent for me to let him have
my best span and coach immediately.
Well, the dapples are the best, and, to my
eye, better than his own, but there's not
a man belonging to the stables dare drive
them but Cary, and he is down with a
fever. The other horses are all out, or
engaged, and I dont know what the
" There ! there ! " said I no' oaths, I
have nothing on hand, and really should
like to play hack-man for a day ! "
" Surely, Mr. Morris, you are joking!"
ejaculated the man, in amazement.
" No ! I am in earnest," for the idea
was so novel that I, a lover of adventure,
became every moment more determined
to try it. "I am really in earnest, Mr.
McGreer, so say no more about it. You
know I can manage anything. Just have
them hitched up, and give me the livery
coat and hat. Now, leave me the office
for a moment but stop! don't let the
men know who I am, and by the way I
almost forgot it have our team sent
around in about an hour."
Left alone, I proceeded to alter my ap
pearance as much as possible, assuming
the habilunjents of a driver. I made a
first'rate Irishman of the higher grade.
The metamorphose was scarcely complet
ed, when Mr. McGreer entered.
"Mr. Mor "
"Michael, ye mane,"! interrupted.
" Sure there is no reason I should be
cheated out of "me name." We both
laughed, and I received congratulations
upon making so good a son of Erin.
Stepping out of the office, I mounted
the box, gathered up the reins, and was
off. The horses were usually gay, but I
had them in good trim by the time I
stopped before Mr. Elmore's residence.
It may be well to state, Grace Elmore
wps not the least inducement for my as
suming my present position'. All winter
she had been a dream idol of mine, or,
rather, half a one, for I could not really
decide which I prefered, Grace, or Maud
de Merris, a young French lady, who was
spending the winter in New York with
her parents. Both were bewitching, and
I embraced every opportunity of being
with either. -
Springing from the box, I rang the
bell, and presently assisted Miss Elmore
and two friends into the carriage.
The day was 'warm for March, and the
four windows were open Grace sitting
on the scat nearest roe.
"Hound the plcasantest streets, driver.
Anywhere for a ride," she said.
We started, and for a quarter of an
hour, the ladies' chit-chat was of no ac
count to me, then suddenly Miss Fanny
" By the-way, Grace, rumor says you
are engaged to George Morris, and the
' solitaire ' on your fore finger appears to
" Humor honors me," was the reply:
" Now, Grace," chimed in the third
lady, -"stop your nonsense, and tell us
candidly, are you engaged ? "
" Well, I am arraigned before a court
for some terrible crime, and commanded
to answer Guilty or Not Guilty ? is that
it?" was tbe half-laughing, half-annoyed
' " No," returned the third lady, " not
at all, only urged to gratify friendly curi
osity." " Well, the truth is, I am not at liber
ty to say all I wish.; but this much I
will acknowledge the ring 'ou mention
did once belong to George Morris !"
Was there ever such an abominable
falsehood told, every word of which is
true 1 I thought, angrily, as I heard the
comments about my money, person, par
ents, etc. That girl has lead them to
suppose we are engaged, and there is the
ring to prove it a ring she took from
me in sport, a few evenings since, and
whicn i intended to recover upon our
next meeting. Well there was one thing
certain. Grace Elmore will never be my
wife; I could not trust such a schemer.
This resolution was strengthened when I
heard her say, in a confidential under
tone, to the third lady (Miss Fanny hav
ing been left at her own house:)
'I have, of course, no feeling in the
matter, only school-girl's love; but I think
George will make a desirable husband,
while his wealth, with my own, will place
us above any change of fortune. Then
he is really very handsome, and 1 have
decided to take him, I don't know that I
could do much better.
" Pity I have not arrived at a similar
decision, was my mental sarcasm.
Just then she called, affectionately,
"Home, driver." ; Willingly did I place
her on the carriage steps and turned to
ward the stables. " By Jove ! I wish I
could have as good an opportunity to try
Jiaua de JYlerns I "s 1 eiaculated. as
drove up to my station., ; McGreer was
waning xor me. x here was a gray-haired
gentleman with him.: but McG-reer Rten-
ped aside and asked me if I objected to
guiug luriuer, at tbe same time overnow
ering me with thanks, and saving if V,a
horses were cooled down, he could gie
them to some on else -
"No, no!" I replied quickly, for I
was desirous of learning more of human
ity. "I will keep my place for the pres-
oui, kuu wo wnere you c noose.
Turning to the gentleman, McGreer
bowed and said : " Mr. Lancy, this car
riage is at your disposal."
In Mr. Lancy I recognized a worthy
merchant, though not well known in the
higher circle, his means placing him only
with those who were in very good cir
cumstances."'. " Wrhere, sir," I asked, as he entered
" To street, north side.";
A quiet, cosy little place it proved to
be a three, story brick, new and hand
some, though lacking elegance. Here
the gentleman alighted, returning in a
short time accompanied by a young girl
of, I should judge, some nineteen years,
whom he addressed as Maggie, Her rich
brown hair was curled neatly at the back
of her head, and soft-looking, hazel eyes
were the most enchanting that ever met
my gaze; Peering from under my hat, I
noticed every article of the neatly-robed
little fairy. " Drive to the Park," was
the gentleman's directions, as I again
took up the lines.
I listened cagerlyfo every sound from
within, feeling half ashamed at the part
I was playing, though too deeply inter
ested in the lady to desist. Presently a
clear, sweet voice asked.
" Well, father dear, what have you to
say, that you require such strict priva
cy?" " My child," hesitated the parent, " I
I fear yon are not brave enough to
bear it. Oh, merciful heaven, if I could
but spare my darling ! "
An eager loving voice replied :
" Father ! father ! surely one so young
and strong, with such a deep affection
for you, can bear a great deal ; any sor
row, now that mother has no power to
comfort you, except through memory, let
me take her precious place as best I can.
Tell me all, father ; I am stronger than
Then followed a long explanation,
which may be summed up in a very few
words. Their voices were often drowned
in the outer bustle, but I heard sufficient
to understand that Mr. Lancy, who was
doing a heavy business, had, some months
previous, taken a partner, who proved to
be an inveterate speculator, and without
the knowledge of Mr. Lancy, had involv
ed the firm to the amount of several
thousand dollars. The investments could
amount to nothing in loss than a year ;
meanwhile, debts previously incurred fell
due, and were pressed by creditors. Mr.
Lancy ended by sayiug :
" Unless I geteouie assistance between
this and Monday, Tuesday night will find
us penniless. Oh, my child ! if I could
but save you ! How can you bear such
a change ? "
And I heard tho heavy sobs of that
strong man come thick and fast. Per
haps theie were a few drops in my own
eyes, for I could not see the horses for a
moment. I fancied loving arms around
his neck, and a pale, soft cheek against
his own, as the words I was obliged to
lean down to catch, came in a clear, brave
voice from the noblest heart that ever
beat 'neath heaven.
" Father do not think of me ; all that I
ave is yours, and many of my private
articles will bring considerable. Do not
shrink from selling every thing to pay an
honest debt. I can bear all things, so
that love is left. Sure I may not com
plain though all be taken; if heaven leaves
me my father. Do your best, and trust
to me for all the assistance in my power.
can bear all things, so that love is
Much followed, but this last sentence
was all I cared to hear, and by the time
we drew up before the neat brick house
in street, X lairly worsnippea ino
brown haired angel who resided there.
For the lastififteen minutes I had been
contriving a plan to assist them. In my
pocket was a check for three hundred
dollars, drawn up that morning, for the
purpose ot settling a small account.
My name was on it in full ; as I open
ed the carriage doof I cast it to the pave
ment. At hrst neither noticed it, and I
feared I had been foiled, but just as I
was mounting the box, Maggie picked it
up, and turned hurriedly to her father.
I drove off, wondering how it would end.
Kcachin": the stables I threw the reins
to a hostler, and entering the office, told
McGreer the horses could be driven by
a baby; disposed of my masquerade, and
went home, not to dream of Grace and
Maud, as usual, but of the noble woman
who " could bear all things, so love was
left." The next morning I saw in the
Herald a notice which read as follows:
" If Mr. George T. Morris will call at
No. 4 North street, he will recover
some lost property."
It was just what 1 wanted, and about
ten o'clock I called at the place mention
ed, receiving the check from the hand of
my queen, together with an explanation
of hnw it came into her possession. I
asked if her father was at home. He was
not. . ,
" Would she give me his place of
business ? " ;
Taking a card from the stand, she
traced neatly the address, and bowing, I
left her to seek the merchant.
" Mr. Lancy, I am George Morris.
Will yoa give me a private interview ? "
" With pleasure."
Seated in an inner office, I told him
all the last days' proceedings that con
cerned himself, offering any pucuniary
assistance he might permit me to render.
After some urging on my part, he ac
cepted, and, grasping my hand, thanked
me again and acain for saving his child,
saying. heaven would repay me. And it
has most munificently; for not six months
passed ere Maggie Lancy possessed the
solitaire, which Grace Elmore had worn
so proudly and falsely. I have secured
tho greatest treasure earth can give a
woman " who can bear all things, so that
love is left." : Now two eyes are peeping
over my shoulder, while a happy veice
exclaims : : "
" Why, George, you foolish tld darl
ing, no one will be interested in that but
Is my little wife correct ?
A Vast Immigration Scheme. "
The St. Paul Press announces, that ex
Secretary McCullooh, Senator Carl Shurz
and ex-Governor Marshal, of Minnesota,
have been selected, and will be invited
by the Northern Pacific Railroad Compa
ny to go to Europe on a mission to or
ganize and stimulate emigration to the
line of the road and the settlement of its
lands, on a plan more comprehensive and
extended than any heretofore devised.
The company own every alternate section
in a belt forty miles wide, from the head
of Lake Superior to the Pacific Ocean,
equivalent to a strip of twenty miles
wide, in all between thirty and forty mil
lion acres of land, a territory greater in
extent than all New England, and capa
ble of sustaining five or six millions of
people. They have already arranged
with German capitalists for all ' means
necessary to the construction of the road
with the largest force they can employ..
They propose to offer to every immigrant
in Europe abundant employment in
building the road for the first year or two
after his arrival. Whether they assist in
his passage here is not stated. When he
has finished his work for the company he
is to have a farm of forty, eighty, or one
hundred and sixty agrea, with a neat
frame building erected thereon, and a lot
of reasonable size fenced in, all at the
expense of the company. The terms of
payment are so long, and on so low inter
est, that they cannot prove a burden to
the poorest. It is expected that the sur
plus wages received' for constructing the
road will stock the farm and provide the
tools, so that every person employed in
the construction of the road may, as soon
as it is finished, go to raising the crops,
which it will bring to market. The com
pany will manufacture the houses by
thousands, exactly alike, like Che parts of
a Springfield rifle or Elgin watch; so that
each piece of any one structure will fit
the corresponding piece of any other.
They expect, in this manner, to secure an
abundant and immediate supply of cheap
labor, and to immediately enhance the
value of their lands by the rapid settling
up of the line of their road. The present
is a peculiarly favorable time for inaug
urating such an enterprise, in view of the
distressed condition of the laboring class
in England and other parts of Northern
Europo, and the universal desire of the
European working classes to get to Amer
ica by all means within their reach. The
unassisted immigration of the past year is
about 50,0.00 in excess of the year before,
as indicated by the arrivals at New York.
Everything promises an immigration
during the present year exceeding any
thing ever before known in our history.
This will be exceedingly desirable, in
view of the high prices of labor prevail
ing among farmers in our agricultural
districts. Chicago Tribune.
The Oiiio Women They Do Not
Want to Vote. The women of Ohio
will yet make themselves heard on the
question of suffrage. One hundred and
forty-one of them, living in Loraine
county, all intelligent and highly educa
ted, have sent to the Legislature the fol
lowing memorial: " Wo acknowledge no
inferiority to men. We claim to have no
less ability to perform the duties which
God has imposed upon us, than they
have to perform those imposed upon
them. We believe that God has wisely
and well adapted each sex to the proper
perforirances of the duties of each. We
believe our trusts to be as important and
sacred as any that exist. Wc feel that
our present duties fill up the whole meas
ure of our time and abilities; and that
they are such es none but ourselves can
perform. Their importance requires ns
to protest against all effor's to conpel us
to assume those obligations which can
not be separated from suffrage ; but which
cannot be performed by us without the
Sacrifice of the highest interests of our
familic3and of society. It is our fathers,
brothers, husbands and sons, who repre
sent us at the ballot-box. Our fathers
and brothers love us. Our husbands are
our choice, and one with us. Our sons
aro what we make them. We are con
tent that they represent us in the corn
field, the battle-field, and at the ballot
box, and we them in the school-room,
at the fire-side and at the cradle; be
lieving our representation, even al the
ballot box, to bo thus more full and im
partial than it could possibly be, were all
women allowed to vote. We do, there
fore, respectfully protest against anyleg
islation to establish 'Women's Suffrage "
in our land, or in any part of it." It is
reported that during the reading of the
names attached to this memorial, the lit
tle handful of members who believe in
women suffrage retired in confusion.
' Can Women Fight. The annals of
the middle ages are full of the noble
deeds of women. When Edward III.
was engaged in his Scottish war, the
Countess of Mardi defended Dunbar,
with uncommon courage and obstinacy
against Montague and an English army.
And contemporaneous with her, Jane,
Countess of Montiford, shut herself up in
the fortress of Henneburn, and defied
the whole power of -Charles of Clois.
Clad in complete armor she stood fore
most in the breach, sustained the most
violent assaults, and displayed a skill that
would have done honor to the most expe
rienced ' generals: And Mi ria; of tho
illustrious family of the Maldini, with
stood a siege against the papal troops at
Cesena, ten times more numerous than
her own. . Jane Hutchett repulsed, in
person, a body of Burgundians when they
betiegtd the town of lTetarais: In the
chivalrous ages women not only attacked
and defended fortifications but even com
manded armies and obtained victories.'
Joan of Arc, a simple and uneducated
shepherdess, was the instrument of that
sudden revolution in the affairs of France
which terminated in the establishment
of Charles VII. on- his throne. Agnes
Soul aroused this King to deeds of glory
when sunk in enervating pleasure. Al
trude, Countess of Bertenora, advanced in
person with an army to the relief of An
cooa. Bona Lombardi, at the head of
her bravo troops, liberated her husband
from captivity and imprisonment. Isabella
of Lorraine, when her husband was taken
prisoner, rallied an army for his rescue.
Margaret of Anjou was the life of the
Lancasterian party in the wars of the
Roses, and defeated, herself, the Duke of
York at Wakefield. The Counfess Ma
tilda sustained sieges against Henry IV.,
the great Franconian emperor.
' .Why do Egos Spoil. Wo find lin
ing the shell a thin skin, which; : when
kept in a healthy condition by tht alba
men of the egg, is impervions to air; bat
if the egg remains too long in one position,
the yolk, being heavier than the albumen,
gradually sinks through it, and comes in
contact with the skin, and having none
of the qualities requisite for keeping the
skin lubricated and healthy, the skin
soon becomes dry and pervious to air,
which penetrates through it to the J o k,
causing the mass to rot. Therefore the
true plan is to keep the yelk in a central
position. By doing this, the egg can be
preserved for a long time. Tbe plan for
accomplishing t hip, is to take a keg or
barrel, and pack the eggs on their sides,
end to end, laying a tier at first around
next to the staves, and so continue until
a layer is filled ; so on nntil the barrel is
full. Uso oats for - packing; jar them,
down as much as is required to keep
them in their place head up the barrel
ready for market. By rolling the barrel
about a quarter around every few days
the 30 ks of the eggs will be kept as re
quired. By making chalk-marks across
the. head of the barrel at right angles
across each other, you will have a pnide
for rolling the barrel as required. When
eggs are packed in large quantities for
market, this plan will be found conveni
ent and sale.
Fruit Prospects. The Alton cor
respondent of the St. Lous Democrat
writes as follows in regard to the dam
age done to the fruit crop by the recent
snow storm: There is much anxiety
here in regard to the probablb damage to
our coming fruit crop. The reports have
come in from the various orchards and
vineyard? within five miles of this city
that all except apples were killed. Fiuit
being a very large item of commerce
here, the attention of our people were
drawn to it during the day. On a care
ful examination of all kinds of fruits,
and in various exposures and localities,
we find, first
Jijyles. There is no considerable
damage, and a good crop is expected.
. Apr'coU. -All killed.
P urns. But few reported alive only
Gropes. ; Almost all gone. Vines that
were lying on the ground have some
buds sufficient for a drop. The grape
bud generally was rounded up about the
size of a pea, and, alaiost without
exception, was so frozen that to-day they
are as dry as a chip. Whole vineyards
in this condition. This dormant bud
which will now push forward may have
some fruit, but our experience is that it
will be limited. Therefore, the grape
crop, as such, seems to be gone.
Pears. Thero is a large damage to
pears repoi 'ed more than we find. Bart

Delaware belongs to a class of States
having nearly the area of a county in
the West, while it goes through the'
motions of State Government. It has
among ot' er curiosities, -a Democratic
party, and this party . has just thrown
itself into the breach, self confident ami
defiant. ,It has resolved "to have noth
ing to dp with the negro vole, but to
appeal exclusively to the white voto of
the State for support," and it calls on
the Republicans to come to its aid for
fear the negro will put a quietus on the
concern. It is going to die game it is
and show to the whole world tho
stern virtues of the old . Roman. Tho
State has a population nearly half as
great as Cook county, Illinois, and if the
Democratic back gets up the public
microscope turned that way may yet
reveal, something fearful. ' The country
trembles at the prospect.

taking her father's razor with her. After
disrobing herself, she deliberately cut an
ugly wound across the breast immediately
over the heart, from three to four inches
in length. The razor not reaching the
heart, she drew it across her abdomen,
making a wound of some 'five or six in

protruded. Her protracted absence ex

Railroad Work. The Sacremento
Record referring to work Tip the Califor
nia and Oregon railroad, says: "The com
pany expect to construct 150 miles be
fore winter. The entire distance from
Sacramento .to the State line, where it
will meet with the Oregon and California
(Ben. Holladay's) line, is little over SOO
miles. As far as Red Bluffs the country
is level and tbe work will be easy, but
after reaching, this point three ranges of
mountains must be crossed, and some
rather difficult engineering will have to
be done, though nothing so arduous as
that encountered by the Central Compa
ny in crossing the Sierras. On their
side the Oregon Company are pushing
their surveys ahead as fast as possible,
and though we, believe it is not yet de
termined at what point the State line
shall be crossed, the route for a hundred
miles or more is surveyed and the line
settled. This road will open up a rich
country, and create a market for a large
number of interior villages and small
towns that have been retarded heretofore
by their isolation." . .

Taking the negro question out of pol
itics bv the adoDtion of tho Fifteenth'
Amendment, promises' to be fatal to the
Democracy. It was destroying the assi ta
after the concern was bankrupt in capital
stock, for what can the party do without
the negro? ne was an essential element
to the daily life of the press the spice
that gave the twang to Democratigjjrato
ry; and now that ho has disappeared
from tbe stage as a citizen, without the
rights of a citizen, the spirit of the party
organs is flat as a circus lemonade. Tho
ffnrt to lift the "poor Indian" into the
negro's place was a failure; which the
"Peigan massacre" could , not transform
into a success. . When the negro went
out, nothing came in to point the sting
of Democratic abuse.

scried a country tavern, in the .porch of
which sat one of the oldest men he had
ever seen, crying like1 a child. In an
swer to an inquiry as to the cause, he
sobbed out : " My father has just licked
me." Upon entering the barroom, the
traveler . discovered another and much
older man behind the bar,' whom he
addressed : "Yoo seem to have some
trouble here, stranger. ; Your son in
forms me that you have whipped him."
"Yes," rejoined the landlord excitodly,'
"Icouldnot avoid .it. The young ras.
cal was chasing his grandfather round a
ten sore lot and stoning him. -1 had to
