Anecdote of Daniel Webster.
A Boston correspondent assures
ns that the following, one of the
many funny anecd tes that Ports
mouth, New Hampshire, people
tell of Mr. Webster, has not ap
peared in print : o
During Mr. W's residence in
that city, in his younger days,
there was a furniture-dealer named
.ludkins doing business in the
town, who A as a very well inform
ed as well as ambitious man. He
was patronized by Mr. Webster,
who often dropped into the shop
to order or superintend the mak
ing of some piece of furniture.
These opportunities of conversing
uith, a man so learned as Mr. W.
were the delight of Mr. Judkins' s
life; and on the removal of the
former to Boston, the payment of
a considerable debt due Mr. J.
was willingly left for future settle
ment. Attempts were made at
various times to collect the debt
always in vain. Finally,
Mr. Judkins determined to go to
Boston and see Mr. Webster him
self. He reached the city after a
long and fatiguing stage-ride, and,
making a Sunday toilet, proceeded,
to the large house on the corner of
High and. Summer streets. "Is
Mr. Webster in V" asked he of the
servant who answered the bell.
"Yes, but he can not possibly be

serving-man. "Well, I will come
in ami wait till dinner is over."
The puzzled servant, needed below
stairs, decided to take the importu
nate stranger's name to his master.
Fancy the surprise of Mr. Jud
kins at seeing Mr. Webster rush
ing up stairs and insisting upon
the poor man's joining his Iriends
at ,he dinner-table! He would
take no denial, ami carried him
forcibly almost, introducing him
as "my old and dear friend, Mr.
; Judkins, of Portsmouth," and
seating him between a distinguish-
ed Bostonian and the Secretary of
the Xavy; and to use the woids
i of the worthy cabinet-maker, "I
was for four mortal hours just as
k good as any body; my opinion
uas asked on a good many sub
jects, and they all, seemed to think
Vnew- a good deal. I was invit
to visit them, and to go to
Washington, and every body asked

The Charge Coming
The liidcous monstrosity into
which our once free republic lias
been turned by Radical usurpation
the open, shameless reign of fraud'
corruption and villainly developed
at Washington and the vile vindic
tion and venomous legislation of
which the dominant "party has
been guilty for the avowed purpose
01 securing nseit in place and
power, are having their legitimate
effects at last, and the first shad
ows ot its callapse are tracing
themselves widely and distinctly
throughout the hind. The politi
cal history of this country lias
taught the party which legislates
for its own instead of ihe people's
benefit, commits stupid suicide,
and the history of the world has
further taught that the arraying
of casts against each other, "and
still more of races on the same
soil, inevitably result, in the utter
political downfall, if not absolute
physical extinction, of the weaker.
Of this grave political mistake the
anxious and rapacious leaders of
the Hadical party have been fla
grantly guilty. To insure their
continued hold upon office and
power, they have first disgusted
the white race by fawning upon
and flattering the negro, and then
incensed and outraged the white
man by making laws discriminat
ing to his disad vantage. Socager
are they to make sure of the iicav
vote, that they have actually
placed the white man at the mercy
and in the power of the ignorant
negro as if the white men had no
rights under the Government to be
respected, while the negro is to be
treated as the pet, spoiled child.
The elFeet ot such legislation is
having its legitimate and natural
result. The whites are banding
together as well from alarm for
the safety of republican govern
ment, as for the preservation of the
existence and privileges of the race.
They feel keenly the indignities
heaped upon us as a people, as
well as the outrage of robbing us
of our birthright. The white men
discovert'!, settled, and redeemed
this country ; his wisdom framed
for himself and his posterity a
republic, the like of which the
world never before beheld ; his
capital, enterprise and ingenuity
constitute our natural wealth and
greatness, built our railroads, tele
graphs, hotels, theatres, and great
public institutions; the govern
ment is his only, and to none of
all this lias the negro contributed
either in money, brains or other
wise, and yet for the purpose of
flattering the new voter tieing him
to the liadical leading strings,
Congress undertakes to say that he
shall vote down the white man,
shall have higher privileges than
he, shall not be discharged from
the employment of the man, and
further that he shall sleep and eat
at the vvhile man's hotel, and sit
in the same theatre and attend the
same churches and public institu
tions, on an equality Avith the
white man, his wife and children.
And should the Avhite man refuse
any of these privileges which he
could deny to his own race, or the
negro, if he run a hotel, could
deny to him to the faored one,
he is liable to fine and imprison
ment, the distraction of his business
and damages to the blackamoor
he has ventured to oflend.
This putting of the white race
under the heel of the black, how
ever, is done for a purpose. If
Congcess had only the negro's
welfare and co pi fort at heart, it
would seek to make his dealings
with the Avhite race pleasant and
profitable to him. But, in their
anxiety to impress upon the new
j voter that the Radical party pre
fers ana values him above the
white race, they overshot the
mark and array the two races in
jealous enmity, hostility ami antag
onism to each other. " The result
of this conflict is easily perceived.
The negro is duped in'the Radical
ranks, but denied office, he is no
better oft' than when he had no
vote. Elated in his temporary
privileges, he renders himself offen
sive by his insolence, and, not
being able to exist without the
aid of the white man, lie suffers
want and will die of neglect.
While on the other hand the white
man, jealous of his rights, stung
by insult, and indignant at his
humiliation, will raas against the
hideous innovation, and it will be
well if he does not permit his
sense of outraged justice to de
generate into au indiserimiuating
The effect of this partisan legis
lation has already displaying itself.
It has given the Empire State to
Democracy by ninety thousand
majority, and still more recently
Oregon has gone Democratic.
Ea'cii in Washington city the cor
rupt municipal government though
endorsed by the President, Cabi
net and Congress, and supported
by imported voters from the States,
lias beeen routed, root and branch,
by over three thousand majority
These are simple and plain indica
tions of the future, and show that
the white men arousing from their
lethargy, dropping their" preju
dices and combining in behalf of
their race and country happy
augeries of the grand, universal
and surely coming change. 27ie

Shall Women Become Politicians?
The great mass of women can
never be made to take a deep, a
sincere, a discriminating, a lasting
interest in the thousand political
questions ever arising to be settled
by the vote. They very soon
weary of such questions. On great
occasions they can work themselves
up to a state of frenzied excite
ment over some one political ques
tion. - At such times they can pa
rade a degree of unreasoning pre-
jndieCjOf passionate Hatred, of blind
fury, even beyond what man can
boast of. But, in their natural
condition, in every-day life, they
do not take instinctively to politics
as men do. Men are born politi
cians; just as they are born ma
sons and carpenters, and soldiers
and sailors. Not so women. Their
thoughts and feelings are given to
other matters. The current of
their chosen avocations runs in an
other channel than that of politics
a channel generally quite out of
sight of politics; it is an effort for
them to turn from one to the
other. With men, on the contrary,
politics, either directly or indirect
ly, are closely palpably, inevitably
blended with their regular work in
life. They give their attention un
conciously, spontaneously, to poli
tics. Look at a family of children,
half boys, half girls; the bovs take
instinctively to whips and guns
and balls and bats and horses, to
lighting and wrestling and riding;
the girls fondle their dolls, beg tor
a needle and thread, play at house
keeping, at giving tea-parties, at
nursing the sick baby, at teaching
school. That difference lasts
through life. Give your son, as he
grows up, a gun and a vote; he
will delight in both. Give your
daughter, as she grows up, a gun
and a vote, and, unless she be an
exceptional woman, she will make
a really good use of neither. Your
son may be dull; but he will make
a good soldier, and a very tolerable
voter. Your daughter may be
very clever; but she would certain
ly run away on the battle-field, and
very probably draw a caricature
on the election ticket. There is
the the making of an admirable
wife and mother, and a valuable
member of society, in that clever
voung woman. She is highly in
telligent, thoroughly well educated,
reads Greek and Latin, and has a
wider range of knowledge and
thought than ninety-ii'iie in a hun
dred of the voters in the same
district; but there is nothing of
the politician in her nature. She
would rather any day read a fine
Kem than the best political speech
of the hour. What she does know
of politics reaches her through
that dull but worthy brother of
hers. It is only occasionally that
we meet a woman Avith an inherent
bias for politics; and those are not,
as a rule, the highest type of the
sex it is only occasionally that
they are so. The interest most
women feel in politics is secondary,
fictitious, engraitea on them by
the men nearest to them. (Susan

Editorial Slavery.
Every editor of a newspaper
will appreciate the truth of the fob
lowing passage from some of the
writing of Capt. Jlaryatt: it is
not Avritingthe leading article itself
but the obligation to write mai ar-
ticle every day or week, whether in-
ciined or not, in sickness oi
health, m affliction, disease ox the
mind, winter and summer, year at-
ter, tied down to the tasK, remain
ing in one spot. It is something like
the walking of a thousand hours.
I have a fellow feeling, for I know
how a periodical will wear down
one's existence. In' itself it ap
lvurs nothing: the labor is not
manliest ; nor is it
the labor, but
it is the continued attention Avhich
it requires. Your life becomes, as
it were, the publication. One day's
or week's paper is no sooner cor
rected and printed than on
another. It is the Stone of Sysi
phus; an endlesss repetition of
toil, a constant weight on the in
tellect and spirits, demanding all
the exertion of your faculties, at
the same time that you are com
pelled to do the severest kind of
drudgery. To Avrite for a news
paper is very well, but to edit one
is to condemn yourself to perpetu
al drudgery.'"

Another Congressional Gutrsge,
At lat, at the very closef the 0

contested election case of Switzler
against Dyer, from the Ninth Con-

ion is another instance of the great

, composed almost exclusively of
Radicals and they reported Col
1 Switzler as beino- entitled to the
seat. In tf?e halcvon dav W.
, congress became a political mob
and a lofty sense of honor and rL-
went, and Congress would
merely have gone through the for-,
mabty of endorsing the'in vesica
tion and report ot the cotumitte.
but m this late day, AvhenHonor
is set aside, and indecency and ar
rogance are the ruling characteris
tics of Congrr?ss,no such an honor
able line of policy is followed. In
the late case, notwithstanding 'this
report of a Radical Committee in
favor of Switzler, the facts being
so plain they could not report other
wise, Congress decides that Dyer
is entitled to the seat, by a strict
party vote only two Republicans
having the manliness to vote for
the Committee's resolution in favog)
of Switzler. The history of th
present Congress is full of such
base and cowardly incidents. The
rule prevails that if the contestant
is a Radical, lie musUe voted in;
it a Democrat, voted' out. The
establisment of such princinple
has given Congress the character
it now bears of being an infamous,
corrupt, and basely partisan mob!
