A Republic lit France.
Th thingps accomplished The
: threat ofvfng William has been exe
cuted, for on Friday of last week the
Prussians captured Napo'eon. This
was no sooner known in Paris than the
form of governrr.cnt was changed and
a republic proclaim rd.
The question now i, Can the French
people institute a republican forta of
""government and maintain it? We are
fearful they cannot. They have tried
it twice before and failed. Frivolity is
to errnrr1T ototnnorl nn tllft Fronpll
C?V OVIllplJ t7VJv - - -- -- --
character that we fear no good will
come of this dethronement of the Na
polconic dynasty. ,
It isa very serious qucstiun whether
5t will ever be possible to orginize are
publican firm of government on the
ruins f any of the .-European mon
'. archies. In the first plac the people
with whom rests the governmental pow
ers in repuhli' s have not experience in
f the affairs of State, and know not their
powers or duties. Again, there is; n
titled nobility who -will never wjllingly
'cast aside their titles and become com
mon citizens; yet without such renun
ciation there is no republic.
The authorities in Spain have been
trying for more than a year to orgtmze
a republic and have at last given the
project up, and are hunting a king, as
;did the frogs in the fable.
We of America were 'only able to
form; and maintain a republican form
of government after long years of train
ing. Our fathers -came to the new
world in an earty day and were neglect
ed by the home government, so that
they were compelled to rely on them
selves for government. The sweets of
liberty thus tasted'-were .sufficient to
kindle the great fire that is kept alive
to this day io the breasts of all true
Americans. i . y
If, however, by a miracle the French
8horjld ; succeed with a republic, then
there: is a strong probability that. Spain
"will form a republic ; after thai, Italy
-(will remember Ihat years ago she wa3
'governed by the people, and will deter-
-mine that such shall be the case again.
; When this happens the Pope will leave
Home, and when the Pope has nowhere

r George Lippard,. in his new work
called the Nazarine, thus speaks ot
44 He was a man! Well I remember
the day I watted upon him. lie sat
there in his arm chair can nee that old
warrior face, with its snow-white hair,
even'novr. We told him of the. public
distressthe mauufactutcs ruined, the
eagles shrouded with crape which were
borne at the head of twenty thousand,
men into Independence Square. He
heard us all. We begged him to leave
the deposits where they Were; to up
hold the great bank in Philadelphia. f
Still he did not say a word. At last
one of the members, more fiery than
the rest, intimated that if the bank
was crushed a rebellion might follow.
Then the old man-rose; 1 can sec him
'Cornel' bo shouted, in a voice of
thunder as his clutched hand raised
above his white !3trs. 'Come with bay

the people at my back, w hom your gold

When I; think, sayrs the author, of
that man standing there at Washing,
ton. battling with nil the powers of

those whom lie trusted, assailed by all
that the snake of malice could hiss or
the fiend of falsehood howl when I
think of that one man placing his back
against the rock and folding his arm?

A Prayer For Prussia. At
Newport, Kentucky, a few days ago, the
Itev. Granville Moody, O'lii's fa mors
fighting parson, made the following
prayer in behalf of Germany: M(Joi
of the nations," "to whom helongetli
the shields of the earth." Thou hat
styled Thyself ' the God of battles,"
and hat promised; to ''overturn ard
overturn and overturn until he shall
come whose right it is to reign." We
devoutly invoke Thy blessing on our
European brethren, struggling for the
inalienable rights of man opainst the
ambitious and unscrupulous Napoleon
who strode to arbitrary power over his
broken vows, and seeks the p rpe'ua
tion of despotism In the person of . his
son ; and by the conquest sf his Prus
san neigh bors would seek to the over
throw of Christianity in the disintegra

in his nose, and lead him out with the
workers of iniquity ; arid may the srnoke
of his torment ascend from the battle
fields of the Khinc ; and may his dis
comfiture prove the disaster of Popery,
of which he has been the chcif support ;
and may his overthrow, ritq rack a d

of sin ; and then may the wrath of ra in
praise Thee, and the remainder of

Says the Jacksonville Jfeica: A
young lad, aged about 10 years and of
French parentage, by the name of Par
scan, started out in company with an
other individual over on Dry Creek one
day last week with his gun to hunt up
some sheep jthat he had been herding.
They seperajed and 6ne took one side
of a deep can'on and the other the oth
er. "They kept in hailing distance, but
after awhile the boy's calls ceased to be
heard. That night he failed to get
home. It was thought he had gone
over to the other ranch, and no great
u n easi n ess was felt for him u u t i 1 a f te r
the next day. Search was then matic
and resulted in finding his lifeless body,
down in the canyon, horribly mutilated
and bitten eyidently by a bear or some
other ferocious animal. He was buried
in the cemetery on Sunday. j f!f.x,
At Fry burg, Maine, last week, two
cows came together on the banks of tho
Saco. Tliey hooked and pushed and
twisted until they got their horns locked,
when one of them went bver tho bank
and broke her nock, and, of course, drag
ged the other, too, both going into the
water, the living only to be held down
by, the dead one till drowned i' .

OiLiNo Farm Imi'lkmknth. t
Every farmer should have a can of lin
seed oil and a brush on hand, and when,
ever he buys a new tool he should soak
it well with the oil and dry it by the fire
or in the sun before using. Tho wood
by this treatment is toughened and
dtreogthcoed, and rendered impervious
ct water. wet a new htsy rake, and
when it dries it will begin to be lose in
the joints; but if well oiled, the wet
will have but slight effort. Shovels
and forks are preserved froai checking
and cracking in the top of the , handle
by oiling; the wood becomes smooth as
glass by use, and far leis liablo to blis
ter the hand when long- used. Axe
and hammer , handles often break off
where the wood enters the iron ; this
part particularly should be toughened
with oil, to secure durability. Oiling
the wood in the eye of the axe will pre
vent its swcHinga'ttdhrinking,and some
times getting loo-e. The tools on a larg-?
f irm cost a large sum of money ; they
should be of the most approved - kinds'.
It Is a poor economy, at the present ex
travagant prices for labor, to stt men at
work with ordinary, old f-.-hioncd im
plemcnts. Laborers should bo r quir
ed to return their 'tools to the conven
ient places provided for them; after
using, they should be put away clean
and bright. The mould-boards of
plows are apt to get ..ru-ty from one sea
son to another, even if sheltered ; they
should be bruhed over with a few drops
of oil when put away, and they will
then-remain in good ordt riill wauLd.

Disco VF.RV at Davknimrt; Itr
The workmen engaged in excavating
the bluffs near to Locust street, for th
Davenport and St. Paul railway, at t!
o'clock this afternoon came across the
most perfect and largest Indian mound
or burying-pla-'C yet discovrrrd in the
Northwest. A stratum of blue clav
and an alluvial deposit covered the re
mains, which peaces them at an rxircme
lv remote antiquity. On cutting side
ways into the hill, a few broken shr.nls
of pottery auu fli'its were the first indi
cation. One of the w rkniav, Michac'
Scanlon, struck his pick j into a hard
sub-tanco, which proved to be the skull
of a human being. More care was then
taken, which resulted in the discoy ry
of a vast-' circular arena surrounded
with vitrified stones,5 and inside : was
found a perfect ting ; of skeletons, the
feet meeting in a common centre and
the skulls radiating so far as to form a
circle about' fourteen feet in diameter.
Io the' middle a mnch larger skeleton
was found in a sitting position. The
dry sand with which... the. whole were
cov 'red. had .preserved them in a fe-;
