A new York paper, in a recent local
Hera, telle touching story ot female
destitution, in which it says :
- Mrs. Harwood paused atd tears
ttood. in ber eyes as she pointed to a
neat-looking boy about sixteen years
old. I want to save him and my
leren-year ola girl. I have pa wned
or sold every article of furniture and
clothing I could, but I Am at last pen.

' This little remark is a sermon for the
boys. -Stand up, boy, and listen to
yoar catechism. "What is your name?"
John." " Wbo gave you that
name ? My mother." Yes, my
good boy. There is where your good
' name cornea from. She may have
-" a witched you for eating green apples;
but she served you right. If she ever
gave yon ft gentle, little five-minutes
admonition with a hicsory limb for
telling her " I won't do it," when she
asked you to do something, she confer.
red a blessing on you. You ought to
b flogged lor. refusing one moment's
happiness to the good old woman who
, risked her life for yours, when you were
' born, and whose constant care of you
1 aa been a labor of love ever since.
; The point of the aforesaid remark is
' that we don't think much of that sixteen-year-old
boy, that she wanted to
pave. You boys know that when you
are sixteen years old, you are " big
enough and old enough, and onght to
inow -better," than to allow your
mother to save" yon. The boy of
that age who allows her to stand with
tears in her eyes and hunger in her
mouth, and sorrow in her heart, trying
to rave him will' never make a man.
A son of sixteen should, in case of
necessity, help his parents, rather than
ask them to. help him. This country of
oars crowded with commerce, has many
so opening for a young man who is
willing to be osefaL A dollar here and
there, the result of honest labor, is
easily laid away. And -the daily labor
aiked of these good lads is not severe,
nor does it take all their time. They
can enjoy recreation and still have time
for evening schools. George Stephen
aeon's son found time to work, and
play, and study, and help to educate
his father into the invention of the
locomotive engine. It ought to make
ypa shudder, young man, to think ot
that lad's honest work, and then think
What this world might be to day, with,
out a railway in it.
t?.L'Tkm is. aov in all our country, a
Soy of sixteen who cannot help his
parents as much as they can help him.
If they have money and worldly station
noogb to enable him to spend time in
cultivating his mind, he is blessed. It
they have not, and he uses bis hands
and wits to help them, then are they
.vblessed, ..indeed. ,c If your, father or

' Quite a dweovery in the treatment ot
diptheria has been made. A young
man whose arm had been ampu
tated was attacked by diptheria before
healing took place, and instead ot the
matter incident to that disease being
deposited in the throat," the greater
portion appeared on the wounded arm,
and the diptheria was very light and
easily managed tf Dr. Davis, of Man
kato, profited by this, and in his next
case of diptheria blistered his patient's
chest and on this blistered part the
chief deposits appeared. This was also
an easy case of the disease. The theory
of Dr. Davis is that diptheria usually
appears in the tin oat because ot the

New KlnU or Oats.
A Washington Territory paper re
ports that a new variety, of oats has
been raised in Satsop, Chehalis county,
where they have been grown for three
or four year?, and are called the " Little
White Fellow." The seed came from
the Agricultural Department. A meas
ured bushel weighed 49 J pounds, and
was not a selected lot. They grow
very highland have a large and strong
stem, which prevents them from falling
down. They mature earlier than the
common oats, and yield as abundantly,
different fields in that vicinity having
produced at the rate of eighty bushels
to the acre. Several, farmers of the
lower Chehalis sowed them the past
season, and all pronounce them the bet
variety they can raise, and they appear
to be particularly adapted to that

It is related by a Chester," Penn.,
lady that when General William IIr
rison was running fur tho ' Presidency,
he stopped at the old Washington
House fcr dinner. After dinner wine
was served. It wan noticed that the
Genera pleJged his toast in water, and
one of the gentlemen from New York,
in offering another, said : General,
will you favor me by drinking s glass
of wine ?" The General declined in a
very gentlemanly manner. Again be
was urged to join them in a glass of
wine. This was too much. He rose
from the table, his tall form erect and
in the most dignified manner replied :
" Gentlemen, I have refused twice to
partake et the wine cap that should
have been sufficient ; though you press
the cup to my Ftps not a drop thall
pass the portals. I made a resolve
when 'I started ta life that I would
avoid' strong drink, and I have never
broken it: I am one of a class of sev

all through the pernicious habit of wine
drinking.. I owe all ray health, hap

JetiT Jnvis (Capture.
f . Lane, an old United States sol
dier, is the conductor ot car No. 17,
Pitsburg and Alleghany railway. He
served his country four years and ten
months, and has three honorable dis
charges. In fact, he has more. He
will carry with him to his last day the
remembrance of numerous incidents ot
that terrible strife, chief among which
is the meeting and capture in petticoats,
under the most trying circumstances, of
Jefferson Davis, the president of the
confederacy. Mr. Lane is about thirty
years of age, married, and has a family
residing on Pennsylvania avenue, A lie.
ghany. He has been in the employ of
the railway company nearly two years.
This morning the writer introduced
himself to Mr. Lane, and mentioning
the pubject of Davis's capture, the fol
lowing facts were related by the gentle
man ; He was a member ot Company
M, Seventh Pennsylvania cavalry,
commanded by Col Pntchard, which,
with the Fourth Michigan cavalry, was
ordered to proceed after and capture
Jeff Davis and his party. The Michi
gan cavalry went on tbe trail directly,
while the seventh Pennsylvania cavalry
went round about. A report reached
Col. Pritchard, while on tie march,
that Davis would cross the river at the
forks of the road early on the morning
of a certain day. The Seventh set out
to head him off, and arrived near the
road about 4 o'clock, when the morn
ing light was just appearing. Back of
the road thev noticed a camp fire, and
almost instantly a volley ot guns rang
out on the still air from the camp.
Thinking that they had surprised Davis
and his men, the Seventh returned the
fire, a brisk skirmish followed, and the
scene was intensely exciting.
Suddenly the soldier noticed a rather
youngish woman leading an apparently
old woman, with several children and
one or two other persons following.
The woman asked the guard ot tho 4th
Michigan camp if sheconld talce the old
woman to the spring-house for a drink,
and was answered in the affirmative
The supposed old woman wore an old
sun-bonnet and a drescuig gown, the
latter looped together in front. ; Day
was dawning, and light was clearer,
and on the way to the spring-house the
old lady slipped, the front of the dress,
which was not looped all the way down,
was blown open, disclosing a pair of
long cavalry . boots. The guard saw
the boots, leveled his gun and cried
"Davis, halt !' He did so, and tearing
open his dress, Davis said, "Shoot me;
kill me." In the meantime the firing
had been going on without interruption,
and fully thirty saddles had been emp
tied ot brave soldiers by the unfortunate
mistake of the commanders in . their
hasty firing. , ,
Davis turning to the gnard and Lane,
said : "Your men are . killing each
other; stop the firing. -I have no sol
diers with me only the persons you
see here.""" Lane placed his hand on
the shoulder of Davis and said : "You
shall not be harmed. There ie do oim
here who will hurt you." In a little
while tbe firing ceased, and there was
great sorrow over the loss ot the brave
companions of the two union regiments,
by the unfortunate meeting in the dark
but considerable joy at the unexpected'
capture. Mr. Lane was assigned to
accompany Davis to Murfreesboro, jsnd
sat beside and chatted with him all the
way there. He is positive as to the
dress of the confederate chief. As the
writer was about to leave Mr. Lane, he
said t "We made one mistake .. that
morning. When Davis bated his
breast we shoald have shot him."

The Richmond ( Va.J State, a stanch
organ ot the Southern Democracy,
which has, until quite recently, mani
fested much hopefulness in regard to
the political prospects tor 1880, is
greatly cast down by the result of the
Ohio election, and makes no attempt to
conceal its dismal forebedings It
speaks of the defeat in Ohio as the1" Ap
pomattox of the Democracy," declares
that the condition ot things in New
York forecasts- an equally disastrous
result in that State, and sees "no
future" for the Democracy. "Never
until now," it wails, "did tho fortunes
of the party appear to be at so low an
odd. the North may be called as
r .. .
solid in Democracy, if not more so."
This, however, a gross exaggeration,
in every Northern State then is a large
and active Democratic party. In all
ot them there is perfect freedom of no.
liticftl opinion and action. The "solid
ity" of the South is quite atiother sort
ot thing. If there isa'sinyle Southern
State that is doubtful, under tho pres

A Desperate Boffin.
A Calaorian assassin was lately lib
erated from' the galleys, where he had
been for nineteen years undergoing
punishment tor various murders, nis
first visit was to his native village,
Santomena, the inhabitants of which
were far from desiring the pleasure of
his company. His first meeting in the
village was with an ojd friend, whom
he clubbed to death at a single blow ;
a little further on he tell in with two
other compatriots, presenting them each
with a mortal stab, still another com
patriot in an adjoining thoroughfare
was met by him and killed. He then
went home in search ot his unfaithful
wife, but, not" findine her, he vented
his spite by killing a baby that she had
given birth to during the last three
months of his imprisonment, besides
slaughtering a good many sheep in the
back yard. After this he went into
the country, stole a fourteen-year-old
boy, imposed a ransom on his head,
and, on being attacked by the police
killed the bov in order to make a freer
fight with his assailants, two of whom
he wounded, and was himself then

For once, at least, the astute states
man of Gramercy Park has made a
blunder. It now appears that it lie
had not been in such, a huny to get rid
of that Elevated Railway stock which
benevolent Cyrus W. Field let him in
to he would have cleared over a quarter
of a million out of the transaction.
Moreover, he would not have incurred
the deadly hostility of the Field family.
which, with all its clientage and clans
men, is now out on the warpath against
him. The sodden and general upward
movement ot stocks in the New York
market has lifted the Elevated Railway
shares to a figure far higher than that
at which Mr. Tilden sold out in alleged
violation of his pldge to Cyrus W.
Field. This has been an unlucky year
for Mr. Tilden, and his cup ot sorrows
seems fairly running over. The disas
ter In Ohio, the schism in New York,
the general defection from his standard
in the South, the revival of the income
tax suits,' in connection with the decla
ration of jar by the Fields and the un
fortunate result ot his sharp practice in
the matter of prematurely throwing his
Elevated Railway stock on the market,
constitutes ench a series ot afflictions as
few mortals are called upon to encount
er in the space of a twelvemonth.
