grant's Military Record.
Allusions to General Grant's military
achievements seem di.t.tei'ul to the
unrepentant rebels and their allies as
the sight of water to the victims of
hydrophobia. Those who did tlu-ir ut
most to destroy the American nation
and who only yield obediancc to su
perior force today, are of course en
raged at the mention of the capture of
Vieksburg and Richmond, and the sur
render of Lee ; while their civilian a
Jics contend that an enumeration of
l!rarjts military achievements ia taking
nn unfair adv:i rttao. Th( fltrsnor class
insist that Grant never was a superior
General, while the latter reluctantly
foncede his military success, but pro
test that it has no bearing upon a Presi
dential campaign. We arc not disposed
to concede this allegation. Grant's
military-achievements are part of his
history and character, and if the oppo
sition have no man of equal renown to
pit against him, it is their misfortune
aud not our fault.
.Had the rebellion succeeded a conti

aud hope of the people of the world
would have gone down in anarchy and
vonfusion, under l'rovidence we are
indebted for national existence itself to
General Grant and to the legion of
)rave men living and dead, who cither
sacrificed or offered to sacrifice their
Jives, which is the highest measure of
devotion which men can bring to the
support of a good cause.
Grant's military career lias not only
reflected glory and renown upon c.ur
patioD, but can well be interposed
against the accusations of a want of
patriotism or general ability. The his
tory of all nations has proved beyond

The President's modesty, which of
ten has induced him to go to the ut
most verge of deserting Presidential
dignity, to avoid the appearauce of ar
rogance or self assertion, and his gift of
silence in a nation of talkers, have given
his personal and political enen.ies a
chauce to pursue, two lines of argument,
which they urge alternately iu perfect
unconsciousness of their self-contradiction.
At one time he is represented as
a Sphynx a scheming p'otter in con
juction with an imaginary military ring,
for the destruction of a nation's liberty;
a dangerous vampire, who will trans
mute the Republic into an empire with
Ulysses I, as Emperor; while the next
day, perhaps, he is held up as, an ig
noraut tool of d signing men, only fit
to talk horse and smuke cigars.
The truth is ho is a careful, judicious,
painstaking man, exceedingly auxious
to discharge his duties faithfully, and
to execute the legally expressed will of
the nation. It is true he assumed the
Presidential duties with reluctance and
dtflidence; but from the day of his in
auguration he has not merely sought to
learn, but, as we shall prove has suc
ceeded in finding the widest and safest
course of progressive statesmanship.

A Model Wife The Jamestown
(N. V.) Journal tells the following re
markable story :
.Thre is a woman in the town of
Harmony, Chataufjut county, who has
not spoken to her husband in twuity
one years. In the year 1810 her hus
band contradicted her harshly in the

she wouldn't, and she lias not since
then spoken to him. They have con
tiuued to live together peacefully, and
during the long silence have had sev
eral children bom to them. Every
thing goes on at their Louse as usual
with farmers. The husband is attcn
tcntive, and does his conversing with
his wife through one of his children.
For iustance. he will ask a child at the
i table, " n ill your motner nave some

The Chinese rarte de visile is a curi
osity. It consists of a huge sheet of
bright scarlet paper, with the owner's
name inscribed in large letters the
bigger, tho more exquisite. For extra
grand occassions this card is folded ten
times, the name is written on the right
hand lower corner, with a prefix, like
" your unworthy friend who bows his
head and pays his respects" etc., the
word " your stupid," taking the place
of yours respectfully. It is etiquette
to return these cards to the visitor, it
being presumabla that the expense is too
great for general dwtr.butiou..

Aii Inquisitive Traveler.
A correspondent relates the follow
ing as his own personal experience :
I left New York for Albany in no
very pleasant mood. Getting up for
an early traiu is neither customary nor
agreeable with ine; the coffee wks mud
dy and the toast abominable. I got in
to a muss with a hack man about my
fare to the depot, my finger was jammed
in the car door, and a fat man stepped
on my toes as I moved to my seat. My
face, I know, looked forbidding, and
though the car was full, the seat at my
side was not taken. We had gone past
two or three stations when a tall, broad
shouldered, farmer-looking fellow got
into the car, and without a "by your
leave," or" is this seat engaged V down
he sat. 1 gave him a severe look that
ought to have annihilated him, and the
car moved on. Ry-and-by my attcu
tion was directed by a gentle touch.
44 Pleasant day."
I gave him to understand, in a curt
way, that I didn't care it it was. After
awhile he reached his long neck out bv
me and said yawniugly :
" Looks as ef we should have some
ruin, tioou."
I let the remark pass without reply,
determined he would not draw me out.
Alter suiue miles he cgain spoke :
" Killed a hog last night."
" Well, what is that to me V I
f-aid, sharply.
"Guess h w much he weighed?"
" O, don't bother me six hundred
j pounds.
j tluoss ngain," altera pause.
" Well, say a hundred pounds."

advances. , He made none and alter
riding ten or fifteen miuules, I looked
around. He was staring out of the
window, apparently lost in reflection.
" How much did vour cussed hoir
m 4.
weigh, any how?" I asked as surly as
I
ff.Uiil.
His face didn't change a muscle, al
though I thought his ryes looked a
bttle mischievous, a he replied
' Hon't know ; we didn't weigh him.v
Fortunately for my peace of uuud, he

The Ronton Times contains the fol
lowing singular story:
About five years ago, a youth, ap
parently fifteen or sixteen years of age,
called at the publishing house of John
K. I'ofter & '., in Philadelphia and
offered a manuscript story for publica
tion. Mr. Potter, the head of the firm,
who happened to be in at the time,
smiled at the idea of one so youthful
aspiring to appear in literature as the
author of a book ; but finally, at
the urgent request of the boy, consented
to keep the manuscript a few days and
look it over, j When he had done so, ho
was convinced that the story, while
evincing a lack of polished education
on the part of the boyish author, pos
sessed considerable merit as an exciting
novel, some; of the scenes being de
scribed with wonderful power; and af
ter cousulting with the other members
of the house decided to publish it.
When the youth called a few day after
ward he told him of his conclusion, and
it was agreed that the author should
receive a royalty of ten cents a cipy on
all sold. The story was duly published
in book form, under the. title of "White
Rocks," and since that time 170,000
copies have been sold, Rut what is
singular about it is, that tho youthful
author has never been seen or heard
of since, and there is now duo him the
sum of 617,000 as copyright on his
story.
What a change from a hundred
years ago, when Royalty was hedged
about by divinity, and a soverign going
into : foreign! country was either driven
out, received; witn an tne nonors, or
made cat)iivo I Now the sovereign of

The
Descendants of Simon Kenton Visit
Illinois.
From the Pittsburg Leader.
Recently Jeremiah Jett and his esti
mable lady, of Rraeken county, Ky ,
paid a visit to their relatives at Mat.
toon;, Illinois, from which they returned
a few days ago. Mr. Jtt belongs to
a notable Kentucky family, his father
and mother are yet living on the north
fork of Licking river,on their old home
stcald, in perfect health. They have
had twenty-one children, nineteen of
thejn living; and all have been well
fcettled by their parents and are now in
good circumstances. Jeremiah Jett is
a fine specimen of a well-to-do Ken
tucky tobacco-planter. He owns and
lives on six hutidred acres of land, a
partof oneof the original Simon Kenton
surveys. Mrs. Jett is the great-granddaughter
of Simon Kenton and her
father and mother are etill living, in
Robertson county, Kentucky. We once
kni'W them well, and Mr. Kenton was
an jindustrious, economical man, and of
great respectability. We are now
informedby those knowing Thomas
Jett and his wife, the father and
mjther of Jeremiah Jett, that they
have now three hundred and seventy
live direct descendants living around
them, very lew of them ever having
been out of Kentucky. Jeremiah Jett
tays that his father is nearly ninety
years of age, and hi mother between
seventy and eighty, neither of whom
wis sick enough to need the attention
of a phvfician, and neither of whom
wtisevcrona steamboat or a railroad
ear. The recent trip to Illinois was
Mr. aud Mr Jeremiah Jett's first trip
outside of their native fttate, and they
enjoyed it immensely- The Kentucki
s at Mattoon paid them great atten
tion, visiting the great machine shops,
cir shops, elevators, the business houses
atid public buildings with them, and
while on the elegant and elevated
school houses of the town, Mr. Jett im
agined that he could see far into the
South, the " Hermitage," Fort Pickerin
and Natchez under-the hill ; and to
the West-the arrival aud departure of
trains at Kansas City, aud the " burnt
district" in theXorth; aud right over
the cities of Indianapolis and Cincin
uatti, into Kcntontown and UridgevilJe,
Kentucky. They returned to their
gloiiou old commonwealth very much
pleased with their trip and visit and
especially with the steam engine and
the railroad.
j A IAN:Euors Rihi.k Tf.xt.-A res
ident of a Georgian town attended a
fillip meeting reiently. The first day
he " got reliirion the second, the offi
ciating clergyman preached powerfully
rom the text : 44 If thy right hand of
fend thee, cut it off aud cat it from
bee." The new convert was only too
eadv to make a sacrifice for his faith.
On his right foot there were three im
mense corn, which ached day and night.
It was a clear case, and a deftly applied
razor removed the offending member at j
jonce. He was found half dead from
loss of blood, and if he recovers will bo
a cripple for lic. The text in ques
tion is a dangerous one. In 1M57 a
! London lunatic quoted it as his reason
for having gouged out one of his eyes ;
and in 1871, a crazy Pennsylvania!)
plead it as an excuse for his folly in
having chopped oil all his fingers.
A Sacramento telegraph office is rid
ding itself of loifcrs. The Ike fays:
44 A box. running the full length of the
front of the office on the outside, has
heretolorc furnished a tempting seat for
the habitues. This has been covered
with zinc which has been connected
with the batteries that are contained in
tho box. A person sitting upon the
box without touching his hands thereto
will not feel the electricity, but if his
hands fall upon the box, or he puts
them thereon to assist him to rise, he
receives such a sudden and astonishing
shock as sends him an unbelieveablc
number of feet toward the lofty roof and
the adjacent river. Any good day a per
son may see sonic of these unfortunates
unexpectedly struck by some of this do
mesticated lightning, describing a fifty
feet parabola in the air."
The following is from tho New York
IleraUVs report of a receit skirmish in
the Senate : Thurtnan quizzingly ask

great laughter, in which Thurman join
