0, gnlblca hours when we wen young,
When time was one long dream of Joy,
lad golden beads of bliss were strung
On life's bright thread In nnalloy.
When years of sunshine long and sweet
Passed lightly o'er our youthful heads,-
Dncared, unnumbered as ouf feet
Trlpned gaily o'er llfe'a flowery beds.
0, visions gone Yet dimly soon
Through mists of Intervening years
Like Spring's soft fields of em'ruld green,
Viewed through the veil of winter's tears.
As Mertjcry paints each youthful face
' Upon thu canvass of the mind,
Clothed In the Innocence and grace
Of all the virtues e'er detlued;
'Tis hard to tbluk that some who now
Are deep In wretchedness aud crime,
Are those with whom yon used, U bow
And li-p a prayer In childhood's titco.
O, well 't would 14, could we but hide
'the deeds which, wrought In latter years,
Would cause the ghost of youth to chide,
Or sorrow weep unwonted tears.
Better to die and be forgot
By friends, by foes, and all mankind,
Than live to curse our earthly lot,
And leave a page of guilt bchiud.

General Passenger Agent Thomas
I. Goodman of tho ;Central Pacific,
says the San Francisco Examiner,
states that tho road will not grant
excursion tickets, for tho reason that
if any concession was made, the regu-
ar passenger business would be ruin
id. since no one would go East with
out an excursion ticket, which he
would sell at Omaha or somo point
not far beyond. Another difficulty
occurred in the impossibility of satis
fying the public with any reasonable
reduction.. .In the matter of Exposi
tion freights it i probable that all
the roads ot the country will substan
tially concur that is, to carry arti
cles intended for exhibition to Phila
delphia at tho usual races, and, if they
remain unsold, retur" them free of
charge. Mr. Slubbs, General f reigbt
Agent of the. Central Pacific, states
that the impression having prevailed
in China and Japan that Asiatic
freights were to bo carried free, they
will be carried as far as Ogden, and
probably to Omaha. Tl roads east
of the Missouri are disinclined to ac
cede to the arrangement. .'Seventeen
carloads, comprising the. Japanese
buildings and other articles, bave al
ready gone forw3id, and.it i sup
posed there "will be enough irora Cln
ca to make forty carloads more. This
is equivalent to three full trains to
Tmrkw, or two from tLat tott to
Ogden. Information that ike three

We, for our part, see far more dan
cer to tho Government in popular fa
miliarity with or indifference to the
evils which Grant's Administration
has fostered, than in the possibility of
tno election ot any man lor .three
terms. It must not bo forgotten, in
estimating or in criticising his politi
cal career, that is tho very fact of his
strong claim on popular gratitude
which has made his two terms so do
moralizing, and it is almost always by
men with claims ou popular gratitude
that tho seeds of political ruin are
If lio had not been a successful
general in dark days, he would have
become odious before 1871!: but with
the halo of tho "war about him, not
only liavo'q terrible number of faults
been forgiven hiin. but thov have
como to loco tho appearance of faults,
and; take on that of virtues. No or
dinary President could, for instance,
havo been allowed to given a Govern
ment like this a Mussulman flavor, by
appointing high publio functionaries
through pure personal caprice.
When t resident Urant first began
to make extraordinary, and, as it
seemed scandalous, selections for
places m tho pnblio service, his friends
maintained that wo must not reproach
him, that ho was a simple niinucd
man, who M as necessarily in this mat
ter in tho hands of tho Senators and
Representatives : but ho speedily dis
sipated this theory by appointing
Simmons of Doston in defiance of the
Representative of tho district, and
Mo Donald of St. Louis in defiance of
tho whole Stato delegation. In short,
he has administered the Government
neither on the old American "spoils"
system nor on the new "civil service
reform" system, but ou tho Sultanio
or Turkish system, which says : "I

Freedom of the Precaa.
Robert Coll ver savs on this nucs-
tiou : "I stand" up for tho perfect and
entiro freedom of tho press. I want
to see it frank and fearless about men
and things, no matter who gets hurt. I
tave no sympathy with tho sentimon-
tal squcamishncss that would cover
up tliini'S which ought to be revealed;
hero the press can do a work before
which tho pulpit generally quails and
falls back, coming up at 'last, if it
comes at all, among tho reserves,
And here tho press, or, rather, tho no
bler part of it, is doing a peerless
work in grappling with tho awful dis
ease that has seized us, of public and
personal corruption. And if writers
for tho press aro so sure of their own
immaculate perception as to bo able
to lay baro, with a good conscience,
tho weakness and littleness that hides
somewhere in us all, let that bo done
also. IVe may think of Sterne, who
wept over a dead-ass, and was as hard
as a stone to his poof mother; or ot
that Mackenzie who wrote tho "Man
of Feeling," and was told by his wife
one day, when he came homo from a
bull bait, that he had put all his feel
ing into his book. Thoughts like these
wil come as tho birds come. And
somo writers for the press may be
like somo ministers finger posts,
Eointing Out the way they never take;
ut the finger post, also, is indispen
sable in its way. I say not one word,
then, against a free and fair discus
sion ot our mutual littleness, even
With the littleness of these men left
out. We aro all tho better lor it,
whether they are or not."

City of Portland, Portland, Oregon
Mi Dear Sir; llorewith please find
a communication from lion. C.'li.
Wright, of Philadelphia, President of
tho Northorn Pacilio Railroad Co.,
Writing me Saturday on receipt of a
dispatch informing him of the passage
through tho U. S. Sonato of tho bill
extending tho time for tho comple
tion of tho Northern Paoifio railroad.
The communication explains itself,
and will give greater courngo to our
pcoplo on the northwest coast. I
havo had frcquuut convarsations with
General Wright, Geuoral Moorehead,
of Pittsburgh, and others, nony., tho
leading officials and patties', most

me, in the 'mostpositive terms, that
tboy expect, Under the .prosont man
agement, to bo able to scoure capital
and proceed at aa early day with. the
construction of tho road. Tho '.bill
whiob has recently passod the Senate
grants an extension ot eight years.
This extension, however, does not
apply to that portion of tho road from
Pen d'Oreillo Lake to Pugot Sound,
but ouly to tho main line of the road
via. the valley of the Columbia river,
Portland, Oregon, to 'Puget Sound.'
The bill likewise 'provides fully for
tho protection of all 'Bottlers within
the limits of tlie railroad grant. Very
sincerely your friend, ,

New York Correspondence of th. Baltimore Ameri
Two persons seen everywhere this
Winter, and who attract a great deal
of attention, are Mr. Joaquin Miller
and Colonel Nicholas Smith, the bus
band of Ida Greeley. Colonel Smith
is always in attepdance on his wife ;
Joaquin (no one would know him as
.Mr." Miller) was thought at one
time to come to New York in search
of ono, but as a fortune hunter, )i that
was part of the programme, he does
not seem destined to be a success.
He cannot bolp making straight for
tho prettiest girl m the room any
more than be . can help talking very
tender .poetry oat of his eyes when
be reaches her side.
Colonel Smith is . undeniably the
handsomest man anywhere, lie is
gifted also with that wonderful man
ner which, for the time being, makes
the person to whom he is talking, be
it man or woman, think bio or her
self the one object ia the -world in
which or in whose opinions and ideas
he is most interested. He ia a pic
turesque talker, full of that peculiar
mixture of originality, chivalry and
honesty which aeems to rjiting'iih
the natives of the border E'jites.0 He
says he made op his mind to marry
Miss Ida Greeley, if be could get her,
before be ever saw her, Jrutn the
newspaper account other goodness
and devotion to her pireuU.
' The Itebcl Flags. :
.,'The Shroveport (Louisiana) Tuna
says: "During our civil war the
several seceded States used their
several State flags. In March, 1801,
tho Confederate Congress adopted
the Bo-callod stars aud bars,' com
posed of three horizontal burs oi equal
width, the middle ono white, tho
others red, with a bluo uuion con
taining nine white stars arranged in a
circle. The resemblanco ot this to
the 'stars and stripes' led to confusion
and mistakes in the Sold, and in Sep
tember, 1801, a battle flag was adopt
ed, a rod field charged with a blue
saltior, with a narrow border of white,
on which were disp aved thirteen
white stars. In 1863 tho 'stars and
are' wore supplanted bv a flacr with
a whito field, having tho battle flue
for a union. The liar? of 1863 wna
found defio ent in service, it being
liable to be taken for a flacr of truce :
aud on February 4. 1805. the outer
half of tho field beyond tho union was
covered with a vertical red bar. This
was tho last Hug of tho Confederacy.

And it ho desired to mako political

great talent, and has many zealous
