madil Home Happy.
In an old churchyard stood a stone,
Weather marked and st lined ;
The hand of Time had crumbled it,
Sqo 1 1 v part remained.
Upon one fdde I could trace
'In memory of our mother.7'
An epitaph vhich ppoke of " borne"
Was chiseled on the other.
I'd gazed on monuments of fame?
l'igh towering to the skies.
I'd seen the sculptured marble stone
Where a great hero lies ;
But by this epitaph I paused,
And read it o'er and o'er.
For I had never seen inscribed
Such words as these before.
' She always made home happy'
A noble record left
A legacy of memory sweet,
To those she left bereft,
And what a testimony given
By thor who knewher best,
Engraven on thirf plain rude stone
That marked the mother's rest.
It was an humble resting place,
I knew that they were poor.
But they had seen their mother sink,
And patiently endure ;
They had marked her cheerful spirit
When bearing, one by one.
Her many burdens up the bill,
Till all her work was done.
So, when was stilled her wearj heart,
Folded her bands so white.
As she was carried from the home,
She'd always made so bright.
Her children raised a monument
That money could not buy,
As w itness of her holy life
Whose record is on high.
A noble life! but written not
In any bonk of fame.
Among the list of noted ones
None ever saw her name ;
For only her own household knew
The victories she had won.
And none but they could testify
How well her work was done.
Belter than costly monument
Of marble rich and rare,
Is that rude stone whose humble face
Such words cf honor bear.
Oh ! may we chisel on the hearts
Of those, at home we love.
An epitaph whose truth may be
Witnessed for us above.
About Accepting the Situation."
We take tlie following article'
ram the Xew Hampshire States
'tti'l Uition. which shows that the
democracy of that State are in
lannony with the verdict rendered
at the late election, and that they,
in common with the Democracy of
of the West, are determined not
to accept the "situation," and to
:eep up the fight until the Mongrel
artv is forced to retrace its ruin-
ous course, itsavs:
When our fathers came to Amer
. , i y
ica, tne rule or rvmg George was
an accomplished tact, his stamp
tax was another, and the cargo of
tea in Boston harbor was another.
There were a good many " accom-
ilished facts " which those brave
men of old swore before high heav
en should be facts no longer. They
didn't wait for the next assassin,
but pitched into the one at hand.
Thev assaulted the tvrant and all
his works and fought seven years
to overthrow and destroy all he had
lone in the country. They disput
ed his right, wiped out all those
accomplished facts," and estab
lished it as an, eternal imperative
duty to submit to nothing wrong.
Where would we have been these
last eighty and ought years, had
Gen. Washington, Patrick Henry,
John Hancock, Charles Carrol and
their compeers preached the cow
ardly doctrine " accept t lie situa
tion?" Do we want Liberty to
die and be bmied in eternal dis
grace in soil baptized with revolu
tionary blood anl dedicated to hu
man Ireedom V 1 hen "accept tne
situation." Did the Almighty
Father send His only begotten iSon
into this world to " accept the sit
uation' The works of the devil
were " accomplished facts." But
did the Almighty commission read.
"Don't waste your time and
strength fighting against the inevit
able?" That would have been "in
evitable" defeat of the whole plan
Now let us come down to the
present time. We would like to
know what inducement or mative
any decent man can have to be a
Democrat and go with the Demo
cratic party if that party is not to
interfere with " accomplished
Where is the improvement and
reform in public affairs coming in ?
The party in power can do nothing
worse than they have already done.
And if we are to "accept the situ
ation," whv not hold our peace and
. "1 p O AW, .T 1-,,
let them rule forever? hy keep
up a foolish noise about nothing ?
This " accomplished fact or " ac
cept the situation" doctrine is an
abomination. Under its operation
every crime oi an ages oi me
world down to the end of time
would go unpunished and un rebuk
ed. A pretty world we should
have here a literal hell upon earth.
Everything like settlement would
be impossible because nothing can
be settled until it is settled right.
It will never do. We would tight
against wrong continually. Attack
in front and rear, harass flanks right
and left with every weapon in our
power to handle. Accept an " ac
complished fact " when it is an uac-
complished right. Otherwise,

From tne Revolution.
The great want of woman at
present is money money for their
personal wants, and money to carry
out their plans. I promise that they
shall earn it, that they shall con
sider it as honorable to work for
money as for board, and I demand
for them equal' pay for equal work.
I demand that the bearing and
rearing of children, the most ex
acting of employments, and involv
ing the most terrible risks, shall be
the best paid work in the world,
and husbands shall treat their wives
with at least as much considera
tion, 'and acknowledge them en
titled to as much money, as wet
The meaning of this is, that
wives are about to strike for green
backs; so much for every baby
born. Xo greenbacks, no more sons
and daughters. Xo greenbacks,
no more population ; no more boys
to carry on the great enterprises of
the age. The scale of prices for
maternal duties is as follows: Girl
babies, 100; boy babies 8200;
t win " babies, 300; twins (both
boys), 400; triplets,600 ; triplets,
(all boys), 81,000 ; terms: C. (). D.

Gen. Grant a Very Lazy President.
From the Doylestown Democrat.
It is probable that there never
was a more indolent man given
office under this Government than
Ulysses S. Grant. Certainly no
more lazy one ever occupied the
Presidential chair. The wonder is,
among those who have become
familiarized with his. disposition, !
that he displayed sufficient energy
to become an army officer. But
the latter is easily explicable ; for
it is a rule that those who are not
possessed of suffic;ent mental stam
ina to make themselves a record in
the world of thought, are always
edified in matters which call into
play the baser animal passions.
War is always pleasure to a brute,
but one refined by study and con
stant contact with nature's works
m their purity, sees nothing but
horror in that game in which men's
lives are at stake.
Grant cannot abide the "dull"
routine of his official duties for t wo
consecutive weeks, and instead of
devoting his time and attention to
the solution of the political prob
lems of the hour, is forever planning
pleasure excursions and other rec
reations. He proposes to dispose
of himself during the continuance
of the coming summer, about as he
did the last one, at Long Branch
and other seaside and warm weath
er resorts. For all the benefit he
has thus far been to the country,
we might as well have an automa
ton at the White House.
The First Democrat.
Democracy is a religion in itself,
drawing its inspiration from the
fountains of Truth, Bight and Jus
tice. Hence, to be a Democrat, is
to be a good man, a lover of good
government and the champion of
law, order and peace. It is assert
ed often that the Democratic party
was orgamzeu in lsoo, and came
into power in the following year
This is a mistake. Jefferson was
not the author, but the promoter of
Democracy. 1 he glorious and un
conquerable principles of Truth
and Bight upon which it is based,
had their birth centuries before
America was discovered. Christ
was the first Demoorat, and his
twelve white Apostles the first con
verts to Democracy. The Demo
cratic creed is spread upon every
page of sacred, moral and natural

From the S. F. Examiner
The members of a party shonl'"1
patronize and sustain their party
paper. This ought to be an accept
ed and practiced dogma of politiea
faith in all parties, and it is receiv
ed and acted upon to its fullest ex
tent in all parties in this country
everywhere, except the Democratic
party on this coast. Here a great
many of this party though they
acknowledge the correctness of the
theory, rarely evidence the strength
of their faith by their works. That
" faith without works is of n
avail " is a truth which is no lc
vital in politics than in religion.
Political success can no more be
gained by faith alone than eternal
salvation by inactive belief. Xoth
ing is more essential to the achieve
ment of victory in our campaigns
than well-conducted newspaper
which, preaching boldly the do
fines upon which our true intere
depend, enlightening those who are
in the dark as to the evil designs
f our opponents, stir up the indo
k'-nt, encourage the desponding and
invigorate the weak breathren of
our organizations ; and it is not
only during the campaigns that
such newspapers are necessary, but
Tr all times, that they may keep
alive the fires of patriotism and
party fealty (which are, and ought
to be, with DcmocratSjSynonymous
terms,) so that when the time of
election comes to . hand, the task of
mousing our party men to action

Keep good company or none.
Xever be idle. If your hands can
not be fully employed, attend to
the cultivation of your mind.
Always speak the truth. Make
few promises. Live up to your
engagements. Keep your own
secrets, if you have any. When
you speak to a person look him in
the face. Good company and
good conversation are, the yeiy
sinews of virtue. Good character
is above all things else. Your char
acter cannot be essentially injured
except by your own acts. If one
speak evil of you, let your life be
such that none will believe him.
Drink no kind of intoxicating
liquors. Always live, misfortune

A Curicus Custom.
It was the custom in Babylon
five hundred years before the Chris
tian era. to have an annual auction
of the unmarried ladies. In every
year, on a certain stated day, each
district assembled all its virgins of
marriageable age. The most beauti
ful were put up first, and the man
who bid the highest gained posses
sion of her. The second in person
al charms followed her, and so on,
so that the bidders might gratify
themselves with handsome wives,
according to the length of their
purses. There may yet remain in
Babylon some whom no money
was offered, but the provident
Babylonians managed that. When
all the comely ones are sold, the
criers order the most deformed
to stand up, and after demanding
who will marry her for a small
sum, she is adjudged to him who
is satisfied with the least, and in
this manner the money raised from
the handsome serves as a portion
to those who are either of disagreea
ble looks, or that have any other

"A Pennsylvanit Bachelor" thus

whale of the ocean, whose bones

the name of the peacock, whose
strut, without his permission, she
has stealthly and without honor
assumed. I impeach her in the
name of the horse, whose tail she
has prevertcd from its use to the
making of wavy tresses to decorate
the back of the head and neck.
I impeach her in the name of the
kangaroo, whose beautiful figure,
she in taken upon herself the

"Punchinello," a comic paper, thus harr
moniously takes off the speech of Senator

Evidence of hard Times.
Everybody is complaining of hard
times. Beal estate in SanFrancis
co does not o-o off with anything
like its usual rapidity, antb it has
even been asserted that two-thirds
of the apparent sales are really no
sales at all, since money-lenders0
are grown so cautiBus that instead
of being satisfied with mortgages
they demand direct transfers of
property. There can he no doubt
i hat the times are exceptionally
hard. Money is scarce, business is
lull, prospects are not encouraging
the crops threaten to be short, and
commerce stagnates. All this is
very depressing! and - yet it is re
ported by the San Francisco pa
pers that when the office of the
Grand Mercantile Library Associa

than ten thousand tickets, repre

they been in her place, instead of
being deceived they would have
deceived the devil."
For all the several gems in virtue
vice has counterfeit stones.
