A London dispatch of the 13th inst.
The Mark Lane Express says: The
clear dry days and the abseuse of
moisture during the past week have
been of great service, enabling farm
ers to consign wheat to the ground
under favorable circumstances, and a
larger breadth nas been sown that.
last year. The potato crop shared
this advantage, especially the Iiish,
but the English yield, notably in the
midland counties, has been very unsat
isfactory. There has been very littlo
alteration in the quantity ot wheat in
the market, and supplies, both in Lon
don and the provinces, continue limit
ed!, farmers preferring to withhold
corn in the present depressed state of
trade. Dullness prevailed in most
couutry markets, and bnsiness, gener
ally speaking, was quite of a retail nature.-
The improved aspect of the
Eastern question has caused the local
trade to relapse and lose the recent
advantage of two shillings per quar
ter. Shipments of llussiau wheat are
taking place rapidly in iov of the ap
proaching winter, the closing of Ron
stadi and the Sea of Azov ports. The
Board of Trade returns for October
show a considerable decrease of im
ports, as compared with 1875, from
the Continent, Egypt, Chili, and most
notably the United States and Cana
da, the only country showing an in
crease beini Great Britain. Tnese
facts are suggestive, as showing that
the diminution extends to all our usu
al sources of supply. The week's
supplies have shown some increase,
but the larger portion ot the increase
in wheat has betn Irom India, and it
has been most interesting to watch
bow steadily imports of this class of
grain have been increasing irom com
parative insignincance to a prominent
proportion in our source ol supply.
A notable feature in the return of im
ports on Monday was tho absence of

Tbe Radical party is in the minori

crits who have maintained a false dig

reputation of assumed virtues. That
party appealed to the national suf
frage as the great champion of human
rights, the emancipator and enlran
chisur of the slave, the preserver ot
the Union, and the guardian of the
national credit. Its birth was tho fe
verish conception of bigotry and fa
naticism which refused to begin its
pretended reforms at home, overlook
ing the social and civil abuses which
lay at its very doors to attack an in
stitution which enjoyed immunity so
long as it was a source of profit to
The youth of the Radical party was
lostcred by the nurturing influence of
sectional prejudice and agrarian envy.
The energies of its raanliourl were di
rected by scheming and selfish dema
gogues, who professed its creed in or
der to appropriate the profits of its
patronage. The strength of its old
age has becu the recollection of the
mischief it has accomplished, and the
boast of its intentions in tho future.
The Radical party set out with the
declared intention of restricting the
institution ot slavery within its then
existing limits ; it embittered by con
stant slander and intemperate abuse
these two great sections of the conn
try against each other, and thus
forced on a war whose end it profess
ed to deprecate. Finding itself un
equal to the struggle, it rallied to its
support all the conservative elements
in tho North, upon the plea that it
was fighting omy to save the Union.
and that it would gladly lay down its
arms as soon as that result was ac
complished ; but when the war' was
ended, it retarded the recoLBt ruction
of the Union by a selfish, cruel and
unrelenting policy toward the South.
Having, as a war measure, emanci
pated the negroes under the stress of
dire necessity ; it has made a virtue of
that necessity and claimed tho suf
frage of the newly enfranchised on the
score of gratitude. For purposes of
its own it destroyed the autonomy ot
sovereign Slates and thus annihilated
what is most essential to the existence
of tho Union as the framers of the
Constitution received it.
Sending out its emissaries to the
Southern States to excite hatred and
strife between the races, it took ad
vantage of the consequent discord by
urging it as a proof of the recalcitrant
disposition ot the Southern people
and the necessity of its own contin

Having flooded the country with
paper currency and created all man
ner of fictitious values, it presented
itself with sublime impudence as the
champion of hard money. Having
wasted tbe public moneys by reckless
expenditures and burdens and bur
dened the whole people with excessive
taxation, it came forward as the evan
gelist of economy. Having entrusted
the public service to knaves and
thrown tho public works in tbe hands
of corrupt "rings," it sought to secure
the conhdence of the people by a pre
tended desire to reform. The un
scrupulous practices of its leaders,
both great and small, having been el
posed by a Democratic House of Rep
resentatives, it attempted to smother
tbe voice of accusation and proof in a
wild chorus of "bloody shirt,"
"rebellion revived" "Confederate
claims," and other false and frauda
lent devices. It bas done its very
worst to mislead, gull and blind the
people, and to corrupt by lavish use
of money, and to intimidate men in
the Sooth bv bavonets but it bas
failed. The voice of the people hasj
condemned it and now it is engaged

not, remains to be seen.. '
THE BEST FELLOW IN THE WORLD,
I ought to apologize for brincrinsr in
an old acquaintance with such a flour

and have very likely helped or boen

day just now on Broadway. He al
ways walks as though a crowd ot poo
pie were wailing for him just at the
end ot tho block. His clothes, how
evor thin or patched, sit on him well
and jauntily: a broad-brimmed felt
hat shades his white hair and mous
tache, and ruddy, beaming taco ; but
ne is perpetually jerking it oil with
an eager, gallant flourish. It is amaz
ing, the nurabor of women that man
knows I You may have met this best
fellow in the world in any part of the
country, though bo belougs less to
New England than, lo the South ' or
West. Yet he has a keen sympathy
for Concord mysticism and hardihood

to found a community who wero to

girls liked his bright eyes, and a queer
pathetic laugh bo had at times ; ana
when (after a year or two, of which
we need not talk now) the outraged
world refused longer to givo him
room, and tbey lowered liim, deaf and
lent, by a grating rope, out ot sight
forever into the pebbles and the clay,
the memory ot him was kept longer
alive than that of better men. His pi
ous steady-going brothers mourned
for him socrolly aa they will never do
for eauh other.
Our comrado the Major (every
body's comrade, I might say) seldom
touches liquor and mote rarely gam
bles ; ho is too loud of his wife and
children for that. IIo is perpetually
on the verge ot making a gigantic for
tune for them. He thinks, and it is
true, that he would literally give his
blood, drop by drop, if it would make
them any happier. Whether they have
enough to eat or not in tho meanwhile,
depends wholly on what money comes
lo thotn from the outsido.
It is a curious fact in physiology
that the wifo of one of these genial
whole-souled fellows, tho very ring ol
whose voices inspires all who bear it
with courage and enthusiasm, what
ever she may have been beforo mar
riage, always becomes afterwards sal
low as to skin, dogmatio as to reli
gion, narrow and scrimped in her
opinions as in her pettiooats. Sho is

among whom he wanders delighted,

Impartial lookers on may say she has
not lost a whit of her rights ; that the

burning name, which must nave mei,

amusement. Now every wne is apt
to think her own stock ot burning ma
terial quite sufficient tor any well con
ditioned man. History tells us of one
of our friend's clat.; a poet, whom all
the fine world delighted to dandle and
humor. London drawing rooms and
Parisian salons were open for him to
flutter through, and titled and ucti
tied dames crowded about htm, quite
willing that he should make love to
any lips that were near. Yet, like the
rest, he had his Bessy in her neglect
oil ootUTB. rrrowin iealous and sharp
nosed into an nly little shadow,
which faded out of bis life at lasi.
Another of them, an author, we ean
all remember, who drew the tears and
laughter of the word atl will over the
history and graves of people 'who
never lived but in bis brain. It was
onl vesterdav he went posting over
land and sea, tediously gusty in his
breathless energy, acting, ic-ding to
packed audiences, plunging into all
kinds of road excitement, pouring
down liquor like like water, demand
ing unlimited flattery; all neodful as
fuel fuel. Aud tbtre waa the inevi
table wifo in the background, wailing

more psychologically impossible? But
I. - ... iitt i
mo wives oi good loiiows seldom

after all, with what fuel they are to
keep their own poor little fires burn
ing? Tho Major, too, has written both
books and poems. Their rhetoric aud
white heat of emotiou were very pop
ular for a whilo. Whatover he does
is popular; clapping ot hands follows
him through lifo. Thcro are thous
ands of poople who spoak of him with
ratotul tenia in their eyes. Luck,
they will toll you, went against him
even in his benevolence, but he always
meant well I There was tho Workiug
Men's Homo, a villago which he laid
out in the suburbs of New York, and
into which so many mill men put their
earnings, lo bo sure the ground was
swampy ; halt the collars tutnblod in,
and the babies diod ot malaria by the
score ; but how could hoforosoe that?
Tho poor fellow was ruinod himself by

his coat out at elbows aud unblackeu-
cd shoes, although he had deccut

cup ot misery to the dregs with gusto.
About that timo bo was appointod
agent of a building firm, his chief bus
iness being to collect their rents. Tho
houses were let to a lot of poor devils,
whoso monthly appeals for mercy tore
his heart and brought tears to his
eyes. IIo used to advanco tho rent
out of his own pocket. He lived, too,
on the strength ot his salary,
iirirp. libnral aV. In Bergen, tilled
the house to overflowing with all his
own or his wife's needy kinsfolk.
While ho had a dollar ho would share
it withjfriend or foe. But his grocer's
and butcher's bills wero never paid ;
and they brought suit, mortgaged tho
house, and bnally sold it, ' thuro be
ing no limit," as ho said, "to the ra
pacity and greed of such peoplo when
they begin to hoard money.
His wife gave musio lessons, and so
kept them alive, until ono day, when
seeing a poor family iu distress he
sold the piano to reliove them. Since
that, times have boen rough. Now
and then ho has had a windfall,
through some of thoso queer uses ot
their wits which men find placo ior in
a city, but which are unknown out
side of it. A certain railroad compa
ny converted him to a belief in their
stock, and sent him out to sell shares.
IIo has gone to Albany to lobby and
to Congress to engineer diilerent
measures in which be had faith.
There is a certain force and magnet
ism about tho enthusiastic old fellow,
with his high bred maner, eager eyes
and genuine voice, that carries every
body with him in his projects, except,
indeed, his wifo and children. No
Dneo would bring him to advocate
any measure in which he did not him
self believe. Nobody could doubt
bis keen senso of honor. He is hand
somely paid for his odvocacy in a del
icate way by presents usually, a few
shares ot Btock, a diamond ring for
his wife. By these means, and a
chrouio antipathy to paying small
bills, he kept bis head above water
until a year or two ogo. Ho had
been so often mistaken that his judg
ment began to rate below par. Cor
porations found that for him to sup
port a cause was to damn it. His old
friends aro cordial when they run
against them in the street (he never
seeks them in their oflicos), urge him
to come around to D lmonico's or the
Lotos Club to lunch, but never give
him ony commissions. His wifo has
rented a little truck farm in Jersey,
where she and the children barely
manago to live, owing nobody a pen
ny. His sons, as the socs of all good
fellows are apt to bo, are hard-woric-ing,
just, sour-natured men. His
daughters are moody, morbid girls
who despise all enthusiasm and K-r-
vor, and pass their days in drudging
and thinking what they would have
done had ther been so lucky as to have
been men. Now and then comes a
letter from their father, detailing a
new vast philanthropic or money
making scheme, in which he means to
gain renown or wealth for them nev
er for himself. The old man -cares
for little in the world outsido of- his
children. Tho letters aro thrust itlto
the dusty pigeon hole ot the secreta
ry ; nobody reads them to the end.
They are full of tender love and deli
cate fancies. The Major has the sen
sitiveness of a woman. Yet be takes
a keen delight in dodging the credi
tors, boarding-house keepers, fcc, to
whom he owes money. He under
stands honor, but not honesty. But

New Hampshire In the Olden Timet
The Bdttlemont of Conoord was--nearly

as lato as 1727, and yot old Puritan

ovor the people. Everything whioh
had the appearance of levity, even in
tho beginning of the eighteenth con
tnry, was discarded by the Pilgrims.
The drinking of healths and the use of
tobacco were forbidden, the former
being considered a heathenish and
idolutrous praolioe, grounded on liba
tions, and the other as a species of in
toxication. Laws were instituted to'
regulate sooial intercourse betwoer
the sexes, and the advances toward
matrimony. Pride and ostentation
came under tho cognizance ot the'
magistrate. Modes of dress, cut of
hair; manner of speech, stylo of car-'
rlago and bearing, hours of rising in
the morning and retiring at night, too
rapid driving on the loads, too loud,
prolonged or frequent laughter, bad
conduct on the Lord's daj, and a
thousand other things not regarded
now as coming under the jurisdiction
of the civil magistrate, were made
subjects of municipal regulations.
Women were forbidden to expose
their arms or shoulders to view. The'
sleeves of gowos were to reach the
wrist, and the neck was to close. Men
were required to cut their bair short,
so as not to resemble tho other iox.
No person not worth over two hnn
dred pounds was allowed to wear gold
or silver laee, silk hooJs, or embroid

The ancient dress of the man was a
