friend Columbus whom many of our
readers will remember as the man who
discovered America -has had many
hard things said ot him, but the hard
est is from a Hartford paper. It says,
in its efforts to prove that the discov
ery of this continent was not good:
The Indians never thanked Columbus,
for one party. The AlVicaus had small
ground to be gratcftd for the market he
opened for them. He led Sin Into
a dance of great expcctntlons, which
ended in a glorious ruin. He Intro
duced tobacco Into Europe, and laid
the foundation for more tracts and
nervous diseases than the Romans had
in a thousand years. He Introduced
the potato into Ireland, indirectly, and
that caused such a rapid Increase of
population that the great famine was
the result, and an enormous emigra
tion to New York heuce Tweed and
Hall, and the constituency of the ring.

The Vote in Enolakd. On three
separate occasions within the past few
years the House of Commons of Eng

vote on an important a nestjon con
cerning the liquor traffic. Namely :

parishes and towns shall liavc the pow

traffic within their limits, wlien a vote
of two-thirds of the rate payers shall
be secured for snch a measure. When
In 1804, the House first voted on the
bill, tatrothieed by Sir Wilfred Law

the people, the vote for the second
reading of tiie bill, which Is really the

in the session for 1809, the measure
was acraln brousiht before the House
bv its friends, and after a most earnest
aiid able discussion of the subject, the
majority against the measure was re

The Traveler IN the Mnow.

that It slumber pressed down his

but with the deepening shade nnd freez

upon his brain and eyes which seemed
to lie irresistible. In vain he tried to
reason with himself, In vain lie strain
ed his utmost energies to shake off that
fatal heaviness. At this crisis of his
fate his foot struck against a heap that
lay across his path. No stone was
that, although no stone oould be colder
or more lifeless. He stopped to touch
It. and found a human body, half
buried beneath a fresh drift of snfjh:.
The next moment the traveler had
taken a brother in his arms, and was
dialing his hands, and chest, and
brow ; breathing upon the stiff, cold
lips the warm breath of a living soul ;
pressing the silent heart to the beat
ing pulse of his own generous bosom.
The effort to sjve anotlier bad

warmth, and energy. He was a man
