Tan Usiok Picnic. Yesterday morning
came on cloudy, eold and unpleasant, with
every appearance of a rainy disagreeable
day, causing tnsDy per. tit to doubt the
uccess of the affair that has filled the heart
of nearly every child in Salem daring ths
past week. Eager eyes and beclouded faces
watched the skies, from the time of .their
rising nntil nine o-'clock, half dnuoting
whether or no to venture out to celebrate
the day, as wss at first proposed. But the
clouds toon began to break away, and old
Sol showed his face occasionally, makieg
hearts bound and eyes brighten, which but
a few boars before were inclined to weep
.tears of disappointment Soon the a!em
lUiud wade its appuaxauce on the slrutit, and
when their melodious strains were borne out
npon the morning air, remaining doubts
were dispelled, and. gladness ailed toe
hearts of all who intended to participate in
the festivities ol the day. Vehicles of va
rious kinds thronged the streets laden down
with joyous parties, while from beneath the
seals gleamed provision baskets, eoveroa
with snow white linen, that made our
mouths water while we imagiued their con
tents. Merry thrones dressed ia holiday
customes, were seen moving toward their
respective churches, each face being
wreathed with smiles, and each heart ap
parently free from ears. Bankers laid aside
tbeir Day Book and Ledger, merchants
their business perplexities, mechanics their
tools, and wives and daughters their house
hold cares, each and every one intent on
enjoying the day to its fullest extent. Was
it not enough to gladden the heart of any
spectator to see such bappy evidences of
happy hearts on every side? Indeed it was,
and we for one felt like throwing up ear
bat, and hurrahing for everybody. But we
restrained our hilarity aad awaited further
developments. Before long we heard the
band away down on Commercial Street,
and -stationing ourself ia a conspicuous
place, we noticed it wheel ia sight, while
following it came a perfect string ef gay
colors, resembling a "Dolly Varden" ribbon
on a huge scale. Rainbow colors of every
hue met onr gaze. The music baited and
allowed the procession to pass them, which
when done separated into two columns, and
the band again marched to the head, the
different schools falling in behind in regular
order. Then with musio playing, and ban
ner's displayed, took up tbeir line of march
for Bush's grove, in South Salem, where
they proposed spending the day. On ar
riving there the procession broke ranks, and
every one was allowed to enjoy themselves
as they saw fit. On reaching the grove
we found swings erected, and all ia readi
ness for a general good time. The crowd
was scattered around enjoying themselves
in various ways. Several parties were
playing croquet, and the noise of the mal
let and ball created a sound denoting good
nature.and pleasant companionship. Here
at the foot of a grand old maple we find a
merry crowd playing cardt, but mind you.
they were only conversation cards. Yonder
is a large circle of young folks engaged in
'dropping the handkerchief," aad it it
amusing to watch tbeiu as they madly rash
into each other' arms in their futile at
tempts to pass one another. The swings
are in constant demand and are ever oa the
move, while around each one is standing a
crowd of little ones patiently awaiting their
tarn. "Blind nu'i buff," and "Black
man" are games entered into by
both ' young and old with equal seal.
Seated and standing around in numerous
crowd parents, and children, young folk
and old, were laughing and chatting ia the
highest glee. Baskets and pails filled with
provender were scattered around loose, and
the contents were very soon in good de
mand. Little crowds carrying one or more
of these baskets would wander away a short
distance and under the shading limbs of
some friendly tree would spread out the eat
ables making a most tempting display.
Thanks to the kindness of some young la
dies, who took compassion on our woebe
gone expression, and who gloried in eur
natural display of cheek," we were in
vited te laneh with them, nnd were sooa
reveling in viands of the choicest kinds.
This was the merriest hoar of the entire
dty. Lond laughter and pleasant tallies
were freely indulged in. No strict formal
ity wii required, and each one felt at lib
erty to carry en to tbeir heart's content.
Jokes and witticism were ths chief order of
the hour, and many a hearty laugh was in
dulged in at some unfortunate one' expense.
Games were resumed after lunch wa dis
posed of, and the crowd was greatly in
creased as the afternoon paad away, nntil
aboat three o'clock when it was estimated
there were Ive hundred persons oa the
grounds. When we left the Base Ball fever
had just broke out, and a mateh game com
menced between two rival club of the city.
A large crowd was watching the progress
of the game, and cheering their favorite
sides as the case demanded. It was sun
down before many left the grounds, and
each one went home well pleased with the
entertainments of the day, and wishing the
various schools abundant success in thoir
Sastiam Lead a.id Silver Mires. We
yesterday met a gentleman connected with
these mines, and we received some addi
tional fact in regard to tbeir development.
The Mercury of yesterdsy morning made a
serious mittake In regard to the reioarcei
of these (nines, which might lead to some
very oasatisfaetory result!. It states that
the vein of lead is only some eight inches in
width, whea In reality it is from eighteen
te tweatw inches wide, with a shew ef min
eral ia the walls, oa either side, of from
three to tea inches deep. Tbey intend to
commence operations aboat the 1st of June,
and put ea a force of from twelve to fifteen
men. Tbey will also erect a imelting ma
chine at aa early date, and intend te raih
matter along ia a lively maun sr. This
sain ha eely been discovered about a year,
aad it already give great premise of bid
dsn wealth. The partie who have the
matter ia head are men of great energy aad
wilt doubt d all in tbeir power toward
developing it resoeross. W trast tbey
may meet with the success they so richly
deserve, ia oentideratioo of the enterprise
they have shown.

Ratheb Sad ax lXExrecrEO. Sunday
evening about the time that Old Sol laid
aside his acepter ef power' and left the
world in the bands of fair Luna for the
night, ooe of our most popular young men
started out ta fulfill aa appointment with a
young lady whom be bad agreed to escort
to church. All seemed fair for a pleasant
evening and our young man' spirits were
more thaa usually buoyant over the prom
ised pleasures on hsnd. The lady in ques
tion was among the fairest of the fair, and
as they slowly promenaded along our
streets, toward the hoete of prayer, many of
our eitiseos noticed what a fine looking
eoaals tkey.were. They listened attentive
ly to tbe sermon, and no doubt were pro
fits I thereby, and at its elote, with due de
corum, protended -a tbeir way borne. But
during tbe br vtics a chsoge bad
taken plaee ia tlx aUnosbre of the outer
world. Dirk and forbodiag eloudi had
eriteaeed tb sfewm king was d.speting
with Lena as to which tboulj ruletho hour.
8ooe large drsf rain brgaa to fall and
fair Luna hid her fre in perfect shams.
while rain aad wind ibowed full well thai
ths conqueit wis orer aud that the night
was resigned to the power that be. Our
eouple quickened their steps and were soon
beneath tbe sheltering roof of the lady'i
home. Fearing the it Tin might increase
and that thera was u time like tbe present
the young man bade hi hostess a hasty
good night and started fur his own home
with hasty strides. Tbe night by this time
was of Egyptian darkness and all the oh
jecti of earth were of one color. Inky
blackness met his gaze on every side but be
plod wearily oo, the wind and rain playing
ad havoc with his shiney bat and bis rai
ment of texture fine. But with face bent
down to escape the storm he plodded on.
Ever and anon bis eye would brighten and
his benign countenance wreath itself with a
smile as some pleasing circumstance of the
evening ran across bis memory. Taken al
together our hero was bappy in spite of the
surrounding elements and naught but shelter
frum ths storm could add to bis present bliss
Suddenly, however, his attention was re
called from the realms of imagination to
the sad realities of life by rather an nncx
pected circumstance. His Honor had not
been noticing the path he was pursuing, for
bis mind had been so filled with thoughts
of another that an abrupt turu in the side
walk had escaped his notice, and he ruthed
madly on in the straight but narrow way
and soon felt empty apace beneath his feet.
Suddenly percieving where be was, he pre
pared himself for a dive, fully expecting to
go off into mud and water over hit de
voted bead. Nobly resigoing himself to
bit fate, down, down be went, and presently
truck bottom. But yo Gods and little
fishes, what a plight that broadcloth suit
d shiny plug hat were in I Mud and wa
ter from top to toe. He finally picked him
self up and feeling around to see that no
portion remained to mark bis mad career, be
again started for home, where be at last ar
rived, and taking out his diary, made a mi
nute record of his exploit, closing with the
quotation, "Pride must have a fall, but
hat a fall was this, my countrymen."
Deaf Mitte School. Several persons
near town have made offers of land for tbe
purpose of encouraging the early erection
by the State of the necessary buildings for
this institution. J. L. Par rich offers a
black in North Salem, David Cole offers five
acres two miles north of town, and A. F.
Waller is considering the matter and may
offer a fine location and five acres of land
very near tbe city . There is room still for
others to make offers. The school really
reeds five or ten acres of land for ample
play grounds and garden purposes, bat it is
desirable that it be as near the city as pos
sible. It is to be hoped that before tbe
meeting of onr Legislature a good and per
manent location may be settled upon.
Dewaxd for Hocses. Just at present
there seems to be an unusual demand for
dwelling houses. Inquiries are daily made
at tbe offices of our real estate dealers by
parties in search of residences, and strange
to say there is scarcely one to rent within
the city limits.. Were somo of onr monied
men to invest a portion of fheir surplus
capital in good substantial dwelling houses
that would rent for twelve or fifteen dollar
a month we feel confident they would have
ao difficulty in finding occupants for them.
We would like to see some nice little res
idences go up, as it would add to the gen
eral appearance of our eity and at the same
time supply a great demand tor that ar
ticle. Guo Tbmflabs' Pic.hc. The Good

Asctrer Curiositt. By the way, ain't
they thick here in Salem ? We were walk
ing along the street yesterday and met Un

riously constructed cane. We stopped him
and examine! it. It is made of Barberry
wood aud nicely carved nnd mounted. The
following sentence is our veil in the wood
