ORJGGOff- CITY, OREGON, SATUBMY, JUNE 11, 1870.
The Men who Succeed in the World
Take twenty loys of sixteen,
in our or in any city in the
State, and let them go to work,
three or four in a dry goods store,
boot and shoe or blacksmith estab
lishment and printing offices. In
ten 3-ears thev- will have become
men of tvent-si.v, and the majori
ty' cf them will then be aboht as
far along in the business as ther
ever will be. One or two only in
each of the above brandies will
be established in business for them
selves or connected with some firm
doing a good business, living and
growling about their poor luck. '
Now we assert that there is
ood reason for their poor success,
and that luck has but little, if any
thing .it all, to do with it. If we
take the trouble to ascertain the
real facts in their several cases,
we shall find that those 3'oung men
who became masters in t heir trades
or leading men m their pursuits,
were not afraid to work, and were
determined to succeed. Thev
looked beyond the da" and week.
They made themselves valuable
and useful to their employers, bT
being faithful, reliable, and willing
to do what they could for the
interest of those for whom thev
worked. When a press of business
came, they were ready and willing
to work extra hours, without sulk
ing or grumbling, well knowing
that business must be attended to
when it-came, and that there were
plenty of dull times during the
year which would more than coun
terbalance any extra business of the
season. To sum it all up,
these young men indentified them
selves with the establishment where
they were empkn-ed became use
ful to their empIo"ers, in fact,
fixtures, who could be illy spared,
and in due course of time, havin'g
gained experience, were invited to
take a hand with already establish
ed house, or else boblly struck out
for themselves. Here, then, is the
lesson, which is, if 3-011 wish to
become successful masters, learn
first to become faithful serv
There is so much good sence in
the above that we cannot resist
transferring it to the columns of tie
Copperhead. If the 3'oung men
who are now engaged as mechanics
in manufactories, clerks in stores,
or labors on farms would act in
the spirit of the advice given, it
would be not onl3' better for their
emp!ocrs, but it would train their
own minds to habits which would
be of lasting benefit to them.
When cniploj-ee works for the
interest of the unph-cr he is work
ing for his own temporary ail vant
age and is la ing out a future
course of action for himself which
he will find of advantage in eveiy
hour of his intercourse with the
Glimpse of the other Life-
AVc notice in one of our ex
changes the following item which
we eopr, and will add one or two
others of a similar nature:
A few da3s ago a little girl Itha
ca just before she died exclaimed:
"Papa, take hold of m3r hand and
help me across." Her father died
two months ago.
In the JVorthtccstem Christian
Advocate a few 3'ears ago perhaps
seventeen there was a notice of
the death of a little child of 3Ir.
Piglow, of sainted memoiy" who
hail apparent- passed into a sleep
prior to death, when all at once
she aroused opened her C3es,
raised her arms, and rapturoush',
exclaimed, "I sei. j'oupapa! I do,"
and immediately' passed from life
Another, and one of the most
beautiful incidents of death, was
de a theme for a poem, Mrs. S.
S. Smith, of Xew York. A child,
on the confines of death and life,
whil3 partially awake asked his
mother who would take him over
the mountains? Saying "I can
not go over them." 1 1 is mot her
told him that he would be taken
care of by the Good Shepherd,
lie was still troubled, but presently
his face illumined, and with feel
ings of joy he exclaimed, "I can
go, now, mamma, a strong man
has come, who will carry me safe
over the mountains." J-lc.
The report that the widow of
Stonewall Jackson was going to
many a Boston man turns out to
be a base libel on a veiy estimable
lad-. Some people take delight
in starting such damaging stories
about respectable ladies.
If all the land bills now before
Congress should pass, it would
plunder the countiy of one hund
red millions of acres.

A Protest against Woman Suffrage-
One hundred ana iorty women
of Loraine countr, Ohio, all intelli
gent and highly educated, have
suit to the Legislature the follow
ins: memorial :
"We acknowledge no inferiority
to men. We claim to have no less
ability to perform the duties which
God has imposed upon us, than
the have to perform those imposed
upon them. We believe that God
has wisely and well adapted each
sex to the proper performance of
the duties 01 each. e believe
our trusts to be as important and
sacred as any that exist. We feel
that our duties fill up the whole
measure of our time and abilities;
and that the are such as none but
ourselves can perforin. Their im
portance requires tis to protest
against all efforts to compel us to
assume those obligations which
cannot be separated from suffrage;
but which cannot be performed br
us without the sacrifice of the
highest interests of our families
and 01 society. 11 is our lathers,
brothers, husbands, and sons, who
represent us at the ballot-box. Our
fathers and brothers love ns. Our
husbands are our choice, and one
with us. Our sons are what we
make them. We are content that
they represent us in the corn-field,
the battle-field, and at the ballot
box, and we them in the school
room, at the fire-side, and at the
cradle; believing our representa
tion, even at the ballot-box, to be
thus more full and impartial than
itVould possibly be were all women
allowed to vote. Wedo, there fore,
respectifully protest against any
legislation to establish 'woman
part of it."
or m any
Only let a woman be sure
she is precious to her husband-
useful, not valuable, not convenient
simply, but lovely and beloved ;
let her be the recipient of his
hearty attentions, let her fec i that
her cares and love are noticed, and
appreciated and returned ; let her
opinion be asked, her approval
sought, and her judgement respect
ed in matters of which she is cog
nizant ; in short, let her only" be
loved, honored and cherished in
the fulfillment of the marriage
vow, and she will be to her hus
band, her children and society, a
well-spring of happiness. She will
bear pain, and toil, and anxiety,
for her husband's love to her in a
tower and a fortress. Shielded
and sheltered therein, adversit
will have lost its sting. She may
suffer, but sympathy will dull the
edge of sdrrow. A house with love
in it and b- love I mean love ex
pressed by words and looks and
deeds, for I have not a spark
of faith in love that never crops
out is to a house without love as
a person to a machine; the one is
life, the other is mechanism the
unloved woman may have bread
just as t i cl y as the other, but the
latter has a spring of bcautj" about
her, a jo3'ousness a penetrating
kindness to which the former is an
entire stranger. The deep hap
piness of her heart shines out of
her face. She gleams over. It is
aity and graceful and warm, and
welcoming with her presence; she
is full of devices and plots, and
sweet surprises for Iter husband
and family. She. has never done
with the poetiy and romance of
life. She herself is a l3Tric poem,
setting herself to all pure and
graceful melodoies. Humble house
hold wa3s and duties have for her
a golden significance. The prize
makes her calling high ; and the
end sanctifies the means. "Love
is heaven and heaven is love.'

HOW THE PHILADELPHIA DESSECT-
IXG KOOMS LOOK WHAT IS DONE
. THERE A BEAUTIFUL SUBJECT.
From the Philadelphia Press.
Dissecting rooms are paradoxes.
They are places where, with but few
exceptions, all would like to visit,
and 3-et nine out of ten are to
nervous to approach. .And in truth
there is something horrible attend
ing the cutting up, coollr, of the
"human form divine," even if im
mediately, human life be prolonged
13" it. Xor is it a nice pleasant;
thing either to be a witness or a
party to the cutting up; but fori
courage to approach these "schools
of the dismembered dead," we
serve up a oeiectabie disn m
delectable dish in the
sure knowledge that it will bt swal
lowed with avidity. There are
some .ozen dissecting rooms in
Philadelphia, attached to college
buildings and in other places. To
describe one is to describe all.
The' are, as eveiy one knows,
places where the stud)r of the
human being who may have died
from disease, or in health both
intcrnall and externally, his bony
and lleshy structure, is pursued.
There has been alwas something
devilish connected with these apart
ments a kind of rebelling or
shrinking horror surrounding them.
As far back as the palmy days of
the Egyptian kingdom, the embal
mers of the dead though a neces
sary class of men at the time, had
to ilee for their lives at the end of
each embalming. Although a na
tional practice, the fact that they
had taken a man's stomach out and
stuffed him full of spices, and had
pulled his brains through his nos
trils and crammed his head with
aromatic drugs filled the Eg3ptians
with a holy horror. Put use makes
horrible things even pleasant in
time and the 'oung gentlemen pf
the present day have no such fears.
Going up stairs in one of these
places (for these rooms are alva S
on the top stoiy of a building,)
and entering the room, the first
thing a man experiences is a pceul-
nirl unpleasant smell, . sicki"ish,
indescribable. On looking about
he sees twenty tables that look like
ice cream tables ranged round the
room, and a d
body of a man.
woman or child, black or white,
male or female, in whole or in part,
lying upon each. These lar with
their heads upon wooden blocks
for pillows; and, except where the
students were engaged in dissect
ing were covered with coarse cloths
for decency's sake. A woman a
fine fresh subject--lay on one.
"Doctor," said one student, "isn't
she a beautiful subject?" "Was
she ever buried ?" said another.
"How old is she?" "How long
has she been detd ?" "Plump."
"That's so." "Was she ever good
looking?" "Isn't she English?"
tc, S:c. On the wall of the room
hung pictures of parts of bodies,
which seemed to be suffering from
incurable diseases, and some of
these were undergoing terri
ble surgical operations. From a
gibbett, suspended in the middle
of the room, hung low t lie skeleton
of a youth. It seems the suspen
si on was a screw, which was
worked into the skull. As the
students walked about, their shoul
ders strike the dry bones, and the
would swing backward and for
ward and rattle again.
Past doctors, called "demonstra
tors," dressed in long, red aprons
fastened round their necks, walked
up and down the room, to reply to
questions propounded by the stu
dents who were engaged in the nrt
of dissecting, when "Gray 's Anat
omy," did not make matters clear
enough. These "anatomies" lay
open upon the dead bodies, at the
page referring to the particular
spot on which ihcr were at work.
As they cut, layer after laver of
skin was peeling off, .and nerve
and sinew and fiber and ligamert
and mucle and bone and membrane
were here and there exhibited at
one view. Here lay a black man,
his thigh laid open and the white
flesh beneath looking whiter, and
the black looking blacker, because
of the contrast. There lay a little
girl, and here a womam with her
arm in shreds. On some flat part
of the bodies la- the little boxes
of instruments, and ever and anon,
as the student wanted to turn over
a new leaf of "Gray," or scratch
his head, or do an-thing which
required more that two hands, he
would put his knife between his
lips till the hands were again disen
gaged. It is customary, before a
bod' is dissected, to draw lots
among five, that being the number
of parts into which a body is divid-j
ed. This accounted for the peculiar
question, put in a loud tone from
the other end of the room : "Who
wants a leg ?" some subject having Here is' an accurate description

In the charter elections, lately
held iii Peru, Columbus, Madison,
and other towns of Indiana, the
negroes voted solidly for the Pe
publican ticket, but the Democracy
triumphed nev ertheless. The white
men of Indiana are repudiating thorj
fraud by which that state was mado
to ratify the Fifteenth Amend
ment. Two wealthy citizens of WiP.
mington, Del., have just built fine
residences, and have found that
the' are on another man's lots.
The other man says he will show
them where he has got some more
lots, if they want to build some
more. He will not sell th lots,
but gives them a week to take
away their confounded houses.
