One year ago! how many a change
JUKhouj-fit old Time would brinf-
As Hope, in gayest, wildest rantT,'
Went forth on Fancy's wing.
Visions and dreams, as bright and fair
As Morpheus could bestow,.
And smiles as sweet aa Angels wear.
Were mine one year ago.
One year ago! the future bore
No shadow on its brow:
But ah! like grass that went before,
'Tis closed in darkness -now.
Hope over smiles on coming lime,
While shadows dark and low
Hang o'er the hopes that had their birth
One little year ago.
Children's boolis sliould be
Iected with great care, and,
least, the story-books should
carefully perused by either father
or mother, before being put into
tlieir Lands, l'arents arc too ant

to iuis.e navuiwac or me tleiue
of modern story-l)ooks, to pamper
uieir cniuiren s taste ior re:n ino
with stones gusnmGC aiJd over
abundant sentiment. Tlie result
is that the children, perceiving the
vast difference between their own
life and that of which they read,
come to think of the latter as the
real, and spend much time in vain
longings for a condition which
they never will attain. There is a
great plenty of excellant books for
children. Stories abound of na
tural life,and books of a more sub
stantial character; but to choose
well requirs good judgment, the
judgment of intellect and high
toned moral and religious feeling.
Some children very easily manifest
a taste for reading books cpm
monly supposed to be the food of
older people. This is well enough,
if they are only entirely kept from
novels, aud made to read slowlv
the works which are allowed them.
There are novels which contain ab
solutely no mawkishness of senti
ment, and these it would be safe
to put into a child's hands; but
ther are so lew in number, and so
much discretion is requisite in
their selection, that it is better to
make the rule with no exception,
until the child has attained the
stature of a man, and such a
healthy knowledge of life and
character and sentiments, that he
can choose for himself between
the gold and the dross.
Children should be taught to.
think little of dress; but a mother
should dress them well. To do
this, it is not necessary to have
any great variety of dress; but
the clothes should be of good
quality, of becoming styles and
colors, and never loaded with the
burden of ornamentation, in pro
viding with so many foolishly-fond
mothers wear out their strength
and drain their purse. Children
should be taught neatness in the
iirst place, by always clothing
them according to their occupation.
When they are very young, not
beyond the mud-pie stage, they
should be made clean every day
when through with their fancy
cookery. "When older, they
should" be taught to play and
work in such a manner as to keep
clean ; but they should never be
fretted at nor scolded for soiling
or tearing their clothes, or any
thing else, in fact. - A pleasant,
quiet word of reproof is more
effectual than a hundred words of
fret fuln ess.
When children have acquired
some knowledge of work, they
sliould begin to learn something of
the value of money, and that it
can bo obtained by the employ
ment of that knowledge of work.
Their duties to their parents and
friends sliould be as carefully per
formed as ever without a thought
of pay, but there are many other
means for an active boy or girl to
earn money which every parent
can think of for himself. After
the money is obtained, it is im
portant that it should be invested
well. Parents approving their
children for hoarding all they get,
are as much mistaken as most
who admire their children's gener
osity in lavishing all their little
store upon their little friends.
Some part of their money they
should lay away for the future,
where it will gain some interest ;
a certain definite portion of it
they should, of their own free will,
2ive to some charitv of which
they have a personal knowledge;
some they should, without fear of
parental frown, spend for their
own pleasure. If children are not
taught even before they can talk,
that the legitimate use of a penny
is to buj- a stick of candy, it will
not be difficult to guide their
taste to the selection of more
worthy objects.

M. Uuad's Experience with a Buck
eye Editor.
A weekly contributor of humor
ous sketches to the Detroit Free
Press under the non de plume of
"31 Quad." (he is doubtless a print
er) gets off the following ;
"I don't suppose that another
man ever lived like that Ohio edit
or, who lifted me out of the . back
end ol an omnibus one night, led
me up five pair of stairs, and un
dertook to tell mo how I was to as
sist in running the local depart-
mem- or me paper. lou see said
lw. . i , . . ,
nvjuuuinjj u cociv-roacn with a
pair of shears, 'you want to be pos
itive in what you say; folks here
won't believe any of your "suppose
sos and allegations, bay what
you say m words that can't be dis
puted, if they are disputed, send
the fellow into the next room, and
I'll fix him.' He was a great man
for fun; he never laughed himself.
but he had a high appreciation of
humor, lie was always wantincr
me to get olF something sharp on
me one, no matter who, and Jie
run me so much that 1 had to quit.
or instance, he came down one
morning and said: Now Charles,
get off a local hit on Julius Caesar."
'Why, siu, the old man died years
;Xo matter no matter,"
he went on, "get off something or
I'll discharge you." As seventy
five dollars a year was an object to
me then, 1 handed m a pretty bit
ting item. 44 1 hat s good, that's
positive," he replied, and it went in.
The paper hadn't been out an hour
before a dozen were crowding m
ifter an explanation. 'Ts vour
name Ciesar?" asked the old man
ofeach in turn. 4Xo" "Well, then,
who's running this Cicsar business?
iirt I hereto disseminate know-
edge.' Don t x do heir -Anu he
inally threw another sheet on the
"Xow, Charles " said he again

something under a lively head

replied. "Xo matter get up
nething, or here's my note of
land for the ballance due you."
s the note of hand was rather a
good thing to keep, I dug out a se
vere under the head of
'Brutal Outrage." There was a
Washington society in town, and
half its members were rushing up
stairs before the edition was half
off. "Base wretch," shouted the
iresident. "Calumniator of ge
nius," squeaked the old maid sec
ret a i v.
rascal "
hissed a
young man, with his
hair behind
ears. "Gentleman aud
ir aid," began the editor as he roll
I ed back his sleeves, 44 why am
lere? If any of you know more
nbout George Washington than . I
do, iust take and run this ollice."
And they had to go away with
their minds in an unsatisfied state.

over a whole volume oi ancient
listory without finding one to hit.
says he: "Get off something on me I"
That's just what I wanted and I
wrote: e want wood on sub-
scrption to this paper. Some of our
subscribers promised to pay for
their paper m wood more than ten
years ago, and its about time they
brought it in. Av e want wood
wood wood." It was in July, and
there were thirteen loads of wood
in front of the office bofore noon.
They got there about the same time,
and thirteen farmers came up in a
body. "Gentlemen," said the old
man, after they had stated their er
rands, "wood is wood ; wood i-3 a
noun ; "is" is a verb, and wood is a
noun again. The objective case
governs the requirements of the ad
verb, which is the possitivc of thir
teen loads, according to chapter
seventy-one, rule three." And
every time they went to say any
thing about wood, he got off that
at them, until they all went down
in a body, threatening to vampire
him at the first opportunity.
"The last thing I have any dis
tinct recollection of was, getting
off somethig on the mayor of the
town. He went by old Sykes one
evening without nodding, aud I
had no sooner entered the office
than I heard, "Go for iluggs, give
it to him hot; yahkhim all to pieces
and leave his shattered soul
hano-ing to the steeple of the court
house. ,p "But, he" I began, when
Svkes came close up to me, breath
ing hard, and says he: "Young man,
vot'ov 3Iuggs. " I hate to part with
you, but Smith offers to fill your
occupation for a dollar less.' So
I sat down to do up 3Iuggs.. Sykes
was going away and he left me to
my judgement. I wrote an article
that I thought wuld please the
old man for positiveness, and it
went under a triple heading.
I was just locking up the paste
pot in the burglar proof safe, to
keep it from the lats, and I heard
a yelling it thu streets, and the of
fice door came in on me. I saw
stars, comets, spots on the sun, new
nioohs, and "came to" in the next
town, when I sent the . following
dispatch to the old man: "If -you
can pay your board bill stay where
you are. The press is ruined, the
Long Primer is in JTardy's horse
pou.d The mailing table, the bank
and that job rack went over the
dam last evening. Things ain't as
they was. We made a big hit on
3fuggs, and he retaliated power
fully. I have hired out to a quiet
old farmer here, and I think I shan't
pursue the "get off " business any
farther. In about two months I
got a reply. Here is all that was
said: "Young man, always be posi
tive in your assertions."
Truth Stranger taan Fiction
A divorce case was ventilated in
a Xew York court the other day,
which as an exhibition of infamous
baseness, involving all the parties
to it, is unparalelled in our cxpiri
ence. The facts are thus nrrated
by the Xew York Tribune :
It is known as the Peck divorce
suit, and these are the incidents
which follow : A scheming moth
er-in-law, offended at her daughtcr
in law, offers a sou 30,000 to di
vore his wife. The son, who seems
worthy of such a mother, consents.
The wife, deservedly bound to such
a husband, secretly agrees to the
separation on laith oi his promise
to marry her aga'n as soon as the
mother has been robbed of her
30,000. A rascally bookkeeper,
worthy of such a master, swore to
the commission of adultry with the
wife, and the divorce is granted.
Very naturally, such a husband re
fuses to remarry such a wife, and
quite naturally the wife goes into
court, exposes the conspiracy, and
makes .humanity blush at its base
ness. Had novillists introduced such a
story to a work of fiction, there
would have been a general protest,
miscd against' Jt " as utterly im
probable, unnatural, and mon
strous. As it stands, however, a
shameful record of facts, all that
need be said is that the parties to
the suit obtained their deserts.
Monopolies and Cheap Labor,
The J-lra miner shows up the in
consistency of the Sacramento
Vniem in the following style.
"The Sacramento " Union in its
war against particular monopolies,
includes among them, especially, a
monopoly of land; and at the same
time, with palpable inconsistency,
advocates the introduction of cheap
or Chinese labor into this State.
If there is any one absolutely fixed
principle in political economy, it is
that ciieap labor tends to concen
trate landed property, or in other
words, to admit of the ownership
of monopoly" of vast tracts of land
by a few individuals. This was a
standard ground of objection by
the Abolistionists against the slave
system of the South. They alleged
that because of the cheapness of
slave labor the lands of the South
monopolized by a few wealthy
owners, and that such a condition
was against public policy. It was
not the fact of slavery : but the fact
of cheap labor that led to the con.
centration in comparatively few
hands of the lands of the South.
The same result will follow the same
cause here, for free labor, if it is
cheap, as well as slave, is a neces
sary basis to maintain land monopo
lies. 3Ionopolies are so evident a
result of cheap labor that we won
der that an intelligent journal can
oppose the one ami advocate the
policy of the other."
A Desirable Trio. Some sen
sible person has given publicity to
the following waif, which is cer
tainly beautiful :
Three things to love courage,
gentleness ami affection.
Three things to admire intel
lectual powers, dignity and grace
fulness. Three things to hate cruelty,
arrogance ami ingratitude.
Three things to delight in beau
ty, frankness and freedom.
Three things to wish for health,
friends and a cheerful spirit.
Three things to avoid idlness,
loquacity and flippant jesting.
lhree thmge to pray for hon
or, country and friends.
Three things to govern temper,
tongue and coduct.
Three things to think about life,
death and eternity.

Tacts for the People.
Alexander Delmar, Esq., late
United States Commissioner of
Statistics, delivered a speech at
Columbus, Ohio, on the 25th ult.,
which is a telling and graphic ex
posure of the whole financial policy
of the Kacical party. 31 r. Del mar
dwells in facts and figures which
cannot be contradicted, and inflicts
hard blows upon the party, which,
after robbing the people, attempts
to cheat and deceive- them. The
first bubble which 3r. Delmar
pricks is the claim put forth by the
liadical orators and papers that the
party in power at the present time
have succeeded m paying oft a por
tion of the public debt, and so re
ducing it; and that, too, in a man
ner as if it were the first adminis
tration to make payment and re
duction, lo this claim 31r. Delmar
replies :
"As to its claim in respect to the
payment of the public debt, I have
to reply, in the first place, that a
gradual reduction of the debt has
been going on ever since the fiscal
year 1SG5-G. At the close of that
year (July, 18GG) the public debt
(and by this term I mean just what
the Administration means, viz: the
written, debt of the government;
the sum of bonds and treasury
notes actually outstanding and un
paid,) amounted to 2,873,000,000,
as is stated m the last annual re
port of the Secretary of the Treas
urr, (1SG9, p 317). On the 1st of
July, 1870, this debt, calculated by
the tame method and upon the
authority of the last (the. July)
monthly statement of the Secre
tary of the Treasury, was $2,5 1 f ,
000,000. This shows a reduction
of 8239,000,000. Of this amount
there was paid off in 18GG-7, the
sum of $91,000,000, and in 18G7-8,
the further sum of $50,000,000; al
together, $ 47,000,000. This year
1&G7-8 was the last complete fiscal
year of the Johnson-3IcCulloch
"During the following year 18G8
9 there was no debt paid off, but
on the contrary the debt was in
creased $20,000,000. 3lr. Bout
well did indeed claim that he had
reduced the debt somewhat ; and
he attempted to demonstrated it bv
means of an arithmetical compari
son, in which the Pacific liailroad
bonds, the accrued interest made
on all the other bonds, and the
cash in the Treasury, were so ar
rainged as to make it so appear,
But it was not the fact, and the
pretense set up afterwards dropped
when his annual report on his fi
nances was transmitted to Con
gress. The present method of pre
paring the monthly debt state
ments involves a similar reprehen
sible practice. . r
'During the fiscal year 1SG9-70,
there was paid off the debt- $112,'
000,000. Allowing for . the in
crease of $20,000,000 during the
previous year, the net result is $92,
000,000 paid ofi'under Grant-Bout-well,
against $147,000,000 paid off
under Johnson-3cCulloch"
That Was 3Ie. A Yankee hav
ing told an Englishman that he
shot on one particular occasion, 999
snipe, his interlocutot asked him
why he did not make it a thousand
at once. "Xo, sir," said he "not
likely I'm going to teM a lie for one
snipe." Whereupon the English
man, determined not to be outdone,
began to tell a long story of a man
having swam from Liverpool to
Boston "did you see him yourself.-'"
"Why, yes, of course I. did I was
coming across, and our vessel
passed him a mile out of Boston
harbor." "Well I'm glad you saw
him. stranger, Vos yer a witness
that I did it. That was me.
Gi:.v. Lke. The highest head, the
noblest and grandest character of
our continent, the most conscien
tious, humane and faithful soldier,
the most chivalrous gentleman in
this world, the mast buperb '"exam
ple of the Ainerisan warrior, has
fallen like a mighty tree in the for
est; and men wonder, after the first
shock of the news, to find that
there is such a gap, such a blank in
the world. What is there wanting
in the name of this illustrious
American ? Irish Citizen.

The Democracy and Negro SuCxage.
The gains made by the Democ
racy in the late election?', notwith
standing the new element of polit
ical power they have to contend
with in being opposed by the en
tire negro vote, significantly tes
tify to the strong feeling prevail
ing among the white voters of the
country against sharing the priv
ilege of the suffrage with the ne
gro. The large negro vote in
Philadelphia and in other districts
was completely offset by the share
of the 3Icngrel vote which was
lost to that party by reason of its
position in favor of negro suffrage.
Striking instances of the value of
this element of strength to the
Democracy, is found in glancing
over the vote cast at the polls in
Lancaster county. Columbia, for
instance, which has a large negro
population aud wherein lies Two
Hill, the celebrated negro head
quarters, was carried by the De
mocracy for the first time in many
years. In Drumore township also,
where negroes abound, every
Democratic candidate was elected,
a thing which has not occurred be
fore iu our reccollection ; indeed,
we do not remember when we
even elected a single candidate
Such votes as these, general as
they have been over the Stale, sig
nificantly teach us that policy, no
less than principle, requires our
arty to maintain its position in
opposition to negro suffrage and
to remain where it was placed
by Stephen A. Douglas strong
in the conviction that our govern
ment was made by white men for
white men, to be preserved for
them and their descendants for
ever. Five Hundred Weddings a Day.
The London JVcics says:
3Iarrying and giving in marriage
are such characteristic occupations
of society that they probably went
on within the wails of starving
3Ietz, and we krjow that they are
.going on -within the walls
leagured Paris. There is,however,
a certain difinite relation between
the number of marriages and the
property of the people. Even Eng
lishmen and women, as a rule, only
marrv when they have something
to marry on, and in hard times
they put off their marriages until
they are better off. During the
long depression of commerce the
marriages declined, aud it is one
nroof of reviving trade that during
the spring of this year the number
of marriages rose as nearly as pos
sible to the usual average. During
the quarter ending 30th June there
were nearly 10,000 more persons
married than in the first month of
the year. The number of we.ddings
in April, 3Iay, and June was 43,491
an average of a little more than
500 a day. Five hundred mar
riages a day, though they are scat
tered over the whole surface of
England, gives us a tolerably large
aggregate of social happiness and
comfort. Five hundred new house
holds set up every day gives us a
vivid sense of the increase of the
nation. Of course we should have
to set over against these several
hundred households dissolved
every day by. misfortune, death,
emigration, and all the influence
which disintegrate society.
But there would still remain a
large margin, quite large enough
to answer the question put every
day in every growing city and
town in the kingdom "Where clo
the people come from to fill all the
new houses ?" It is these 500
nfnrriagcs a day, forming 500 new
households, which are at once the
means and the sign of our national
progress. 4
A singular incident of mistaken
intentions occurred in Boston. A
dentist made a set of false teeth for
a minister and when the elder put
them in his mouth lie went to the
looking-glass, and said, "Jesus
Christ," in a loud voice. The dis
couraged dentist told him if he
didn't like the teeth he necdn t
take them, but he would be deuced
if he would have any profanity in
his house, especially by a minister.
Explanations followed when it
proved that the pious gentleman
had an impediment in his speech,
and wanted to see it he could pro
nounce the name of the Savior
with his new teeth. He laughed
at the mistake, in spite of his teeth
