Looking for murders dire, item and puff,

Then, with a nerveless pen, he scribbled

Wild looked the editor,

Straight to the fiend bo flew,

THE FAITHFUL LOVERS.
I'd been away from her -three years about
And returned to find ray Mary true ;
And though I'd question her, I did not doubt
v that - -It
was unnecessary so to do.
'Twas by the chimney corner we were sitting ;
, "Mary," said I. "have you always been true?"
"Frankly,? says she just pausing in her knit
ting "I don't think I've unfaithful been to you ;
But for the three years past 111 tell you what
I've done ; then say if I've been true or not.
'When first you left, my grief was uncontroll
; . able ;
Alono I mourned my miserable lot.
And all who saw me thought me uncontroll
. able, !'...
'Till Capt. Clifford eame from Aldershott ;
To flirt with him amused mo while 'twas new ;
I don't count that unfaithfullness ; do yon ?
'The next oh! let me sec was Frank ie

And often was his arm around my waist

Would count that unfaithfulness ; do you ?
Do you know Reggy Vere? Ah ! how he sings !

Ancient Glass Paintino. There
is an ignorant opinion among people
that the ancient art of glass staining is
completely lost; it is totally void of
foundation, for we can carry it to a
much higher pitch than the ancients,
creept in ono particular color, and we
come very near to that. We can blend
the colors, and produce the effects of
light and shadow, which they could
not Jo, by harmonhing and raxing tho
colors in uch a manner, and fixing by
proper enamelling and burning them,
that they shall afterwards become just
as permanent as those of the ancients,
yritVthe additional advantage of thrtfw
ing in superior art. In modern times
glass painting has been carried to the
greatest perfection in Munich.
Hero is a matrimonial advertisement
cut from a contemporary: "A youn
lady of exterior and pleasant appearance
wish to marry a gentloman of just the
game way of thinking."
About a Doughnut
Thore's an old saying that one half
tbo world don't know - how: tho. other
half lives. There's a great deal of
truth in it, but among those ot whom
it may be said most truthfully is that
unfortunate class of people known as
editors. Wo know that with the great
mass of th3 community there 13 a gen
eraUy received opinion that tjaose who
live by the quill editorial, are the es
pecial recipients of all the luxuries
going, free of charge. Is there a show
and the editor goes, some one is ready
to exclaim, see that lucky chap he
gets in free. Is ho traveling on the
cars? There's a deadhead, cries out
some ignoramus with more brass than
brains. And so it goes. A poor devil
of an editor can t
worm paying tnrce -limes more ior
, i ... .
what he trefs than anybody else, but
what ho must bo singled out as one
who sponges his way because he does
not pay the ready as he goes. He
does pay, however, and if there is any
man in the community that really pays
double or treble for what arc counted
free-gilts by tho thoughtless or igno
rant, it's the editor.
But we didn't pick up the pencil to
moralize upon this particular part of
tho editorial life. A littlo incident
that occurred, on Sunday last started
another train" of thought, but our pencil-
strayed as recorded above. c were
at home on Sunday with our family,
resting from our labors. Wo had been
chatling'tncrrily with our youngest, a
boy of , several summers, yhen the
youngster invited us to take a game of
marbles. "Oh no," said we, "this is
Sunday." Sunday," exclaimed he,
"is this Sunday?" ."Yes," we replied,
Mthis is Sunday." ''Good," said he,
"good ; I'm ffhuftCa Sunday." "And
why?" wo enquired. "Because," said
he, "if it's Suuday, I can havo a
Think of that yo who rollfn wealth,
who go clothed in purple and brown
linen and fare sumptuously every day.
lecture to youiscHV" if you eair, amid
the luxuries that surround you, a bright,
rosy checked boy, born to the unlucky
destiny of being an editor's son, and
rejoicing greatly at the adtcnt of Sua
day because it brings him the luxury
of a doughnut. W e fancy we can see
now the glorious light, the joy that
lit up his countenance, the happiness
that sparkled in his eye and beamed
from cverv lineament orpins lace, as
he realized the fact that the Sabbath
had come again and with it had come
tbjc doughnut. The children of the
rich are sated and unhappy with their
pies and cakes, their jams and prescrv
cs, their fine clothes aud costly toys,
while the sturdy and healthy son of
the poor but pious editor rejoices and
is exceedingly glad and waxcth fat,
with a doughnut. -
And "sich is life." There is no con
dition so lowly," but that if a man is
"contented wi' little" his mind will rise
free and joyous above the untoward
circumstances that may surround him,
and he be happy with a doughnut.
General D -was more distinguish
cd for gallantry in the field than for tho
care he lavished nporf his person. Cora
plaiuing, on a certain occasion, to the
late Chief Justice Bushc, of tho suffer
ings he endured from rheumatism, that
learned and humorons judgo undertook
to prescribe a remedy. " You must de
sire your servant," ho said to. the gen
eral, " to place every morning by your
bedside a tub three parts filled with
warm water. You will then get into
the tub, and having previously provid
ed yourself with a pound of yellow soap
you must rub your whole body with it,
immersing yourself occasionally in tho
water, and atPthe end of a quarter of an
hour, the process concludes by wip
ing yourself dry with towels, and
scrubbing your person teth a flesh
brush." " Why," said tho general,
after reflecting "for a minuto or two,
" this seems to be neither more nor less
than washing one's self." " Well Ji
must confess " rejoined the judge," "it
is open to that objection.
That was a profound philosopher
who compared advertising to a growing
crop. I lie said : "The farmer plants
his seed and while ho is sleeping the
corn is growing. So with advertising.
While you arc sleeping or eating, your
advertisement is being read by thou
sands of persons who never saw you
or heard of your business, nor never
would had it not been for advertising."

Telegraphic Summary- ;
Chicago. Mch. 21. Tho Tribune's
Washington dispatches say the Ways
and Means Committee are somewhat
embarrassed by the conflict of opinion
between tue rresiuent anu me oeuru
taiy of the Treasury, the latter being
against much reduction of taxation, the
former favoring reduction. Tho Com
mittee are with tho President, and will
advise a number of changes in the ad
ministration of portions of the existing
laws, suggested by tho experience of
the last year, so that the burden of
taxation may bo more equally distribut
ed. They are for abatement rather
than for reduction, and are likciy to re
commend the removal of the taxes on
watches, silver plate, pianos, etc., and
the whole range of articles in wnat is
known as schedule "A." lhcy will
also probably advise the removal of the
whole or greater part ot the taxes on
transportation : on the gross receipts of
railroads, steamboats, stages, steamers,
etc., and may recommend the abatement
of those on express and telegraph com
panies. Tho license tax on dealers,
manufacturers, tobacco aud spirits and
the special tax on backs and bankers
will probably be rejected. Most of the
special and license taxes will bo rc
Washington, March 21. The
llouie Committee on Indian affairs
have completed a bill to organize a
system for governing the Indian tribes,
etc. It divides the Indians intb three
classes : those on reservations sclfsus
taining; those on -reservations as far
advanced in agriciilture as the first j
and those oil reservations. It provides
for dividing tho territory into four dis
tricts, with cue general superintendent
to each, and one agent for one or more
tribes in charge of the general superin
tendent).' No more Indian treaties arc
to be made or ratified. Tho bill meets
the views of Secretary Cox and Com

The general impression is that the Gov

influence-the voting. The revolution

Washington, " March 23. The
Speaker presented a special message
from the President on the subject of
American commcrec, declaring it a na
tional humiliation that this country is
now compelled to pay from twqfity to
thirty million dollars annually, exclu
sive of passage money, forfreights
which s'hould bo shared by American
citizens with the people of other nations,
and urging am early consideration of
tho subject. lie bolievcs that direct
money subsidy was less open to abuse
than indirect subsidy, and ho earnestly
recomnlcuded the passage of two bills
reported by the Select Committee, which
were referred to the Select Comicltlee
on the decline of American Commerce,
and ordered printed. -. .
The Polygamy bill was discussed and

New Youk, March 24. The
morning says of the pro
posed message recommending general
amnesty as soon as Georgia and Texas
are admitted : "It is a question which
the country will gladly hail, and the re
sult of which will be far reaching and
beneficial. The Senate should show
its disposition to welcome the measure
by at once admitting the two States
which remain unreconstructed.
There is an excitement among the
politicians over the crisis at Albany,
which still continues. Tweed's letter
that he has resigned his position as
Deputy Street Commissioner has caused
considerable surpsise. Words are said
to havo passed to-day betweou Tweed
and Ganat. The former declared that

Tho World to-day claims that the

Sweeney, Tweed and Co., as a power in
tho Democratic .party, are utterly de
moralized ; that the Young Democracy
are consolidated as nothiog but treason
and tho Itepublicans conld have done.
It concludes the article by declaring
war to the knife and the knife to the

withlhe Kepublicans, to make a new
city charter, which is intended as a di

will oppose it fiercely.
Tho following arc the resolutions
passed by the Democratic Convention
in this county on the 19th instant:
Resolved, That wo believe, with Mr.
Dougla?, that 'this is a white man's
Government;" made by white 'men to
be governed by them for all time to
comej and that we will meet, with
force if necessary, any and all attempts
on the part of the Abolition party, to
vote the Negro, Iudian or Chinaman.
fiesolvcd, That tho so-called Fif
teenth Amendment is revolutionary in
spirit, subversive of tho Constitution,
and should bo opposed by all true
friends of the Caucasian race and Con
i8titutional;ovcrnmcnt. IteiQlved, That the assumption on
the part of Congress of the prerogatives
of the executive and judicial co-ordinate
branches and departments of tho Gov
ernment, is a dangerous usurpation of
power, destructive of Constitutional li
berty, and merits tho severest censure
of all true friends of the Constitution.
Resolved, That we arc in favor of
free trade, and direct taxation to defray
the necessary expenses of tho Govern
Resolved, That the action of the
Radical party, as exhibited in the vote
of the. Representatives in tho present
Congress, which violates, at the in
stance of the bondholder, the terms of
the contract which exists, between them
and the people, by declaring that such
holders shall be paid ;in gold fur their
bonds, for which they icould legally
claim but currency, is not only a gross
infraction of said contract, but is a di
rect and outrageous swindle unou the
tax-payers of tho nation.'
Resolved, That the repudiation by
the Administration and by Congress of
the valid claims of Southern loyalists,
perpetrated for tbc purposo of paying
the bondholder nearly double that
which he is entitled to, exhibits on the
part of tho party in power its old spirit
of sectionalism, aud evinces its tdtal dis
regard pf all rules of justice and equity.
Resolved, That tho National Bank
ing system, instituted in tho interest of
the bondholders, should bo abolished,
and that greenbacks should be issued
in lieu of such bank paper, thus secur
ing millions annually to the people,
and giving to the whole people, instead
of the few, the benefits of issuing a pa
Resolved, That, in tho language of
Webster, a bargain cannot bo broken
on one side and still bind on tho other,
and that the repudiation on tho part of
the bondholders of tho terms ot con
tract by inserting that they bo paid the
face of their Jonds in gold, releases tho
people trom such terms; ana that we
now demand that their claims shall be
settled only upon the principles of na
In the early days, a bride's marriage
portion consisted of a fe'athcr bed, six
chairs, a cherry bureau and table, six
cups and saucers, six teaspoons and a
quantity of sand for sanding the floors.
Nowadays the groom does not demaud
tho sand even, if the brido's father will
only liberally come down with tho dust.
A Falls county (Texas) paper says
the family of General Sam Houston is
very poor, and suggests that tho wants
of his wife and three children be re
lieved by tho State, so that "the hum-
blest friend and admirer of tho hero of
San Jacinto, who pays taxes, can feel
that he has somo share in tho Jabor of
lovo and gratitude."
A gentleman of Now London, who
