From the New York Tribune.
A young man t mployed, we believe,
as book keeper in a lanje dry jroods
bouse in 1'hilhdelphia, was arrested a
tdiort time ago on a charge of robbing
his employer. He bad been in the
habit of carrying off silks, etc., and
pawning them, until the amount reach
ed was considerab'e as to be detect
ed. The young man confessed his
guilt, and ashih family was respectable,
ii compromise was effected, the 6to!en
goods returned, and the prisoner al
lowed to escape without other punish
ment than the disgrace of having been
convicted of felony. This is a com
rnooplace matter enough ; the gist of
it lies in the fact that, although the
salesman held a most respectable po
sition, and was not only by birth and
habit a gentleman, but had proven
himself an effcient business man,
he received a salary of only three dol
lare per week. In order to live, he
stated frankly, that he was driven to
eteal. Nor is this pittance of wages an
exceptional case, cither in this city or
in Philadelphia. The streets are
crowded with lads of from fifteen to
twenty years of age, utterly without
means, cursed with too genteel birth to
earn their living as mechanics, eager to
jret into the grooves of business lifa,
and frequently with capacity to succeed
if once placed in them. They arc
taken into business establishments as
under clerks, and usually worked hard
and paid pitiable salaries.
Of course the obvious remedy is for
these boys to avoid the cities. There
is oo need for them all to become far
mers, though that is our usual pre
scription for this evil. But all western
and many of the inland eastern villages
offer higher inducements and more cer
tain success. The employers very
likely wash their hands in innocency in
this matter with the inevitable casuitry
about the law of supply and demand.
One of the largest merchants in Phila
delphia, a man eminent in all benevo
lent enterprises and Young Men's
Christian Associations, refuses to pay
more than three dollars per week to
his assistant book keepers, asserting
that he turns away applicants daily who
would be glad to take that price, and
that any boy, who for the sake of gen
tility prefers to starve keeping books
when he could earn five times as much
as journeyman mechanic, is a fool.
All of which is true enough. But on
tho other hand, the man, philanthropist
or otherwise, who gets a full week's
work out of his drudge and pays him
a pittance which he knows will not
feed him, much less clothe him, simp
ly puts a premium on theft, and if it
is his cash box that suffers, wo are not
surprised, nor is it to him our sympa
thy is given.
The brave, old tar, Captain Colvo
coresses, who was brutally murdered
at Bridgeport, was during the late war,
in command of the little sloop of war
St. Marys, which comprised nearly all
the effective force of the usually pow
erful Pacific Squadron. He chanced
to be on duty at Valparaiso when that
port was menaced by a powerful Squad
ron under the command ot Admiral
Pizoon, and was exceedingly active in
his efforts to protect the rights and
property of the American citizens. For
his success, as well as for a famous
correspondence with the Spanish Ad
miral, he will be long remembered
there. Somewhat inexplicably, he
-ain'u in one morning from a short
cruj.-e outride, and anchored the St.
Marjs directly in front of: the business
portion of the city, anil between it and
the iron clad ships of tie Spaniards.

filiation, and in a characteristically ar
rogant note in funned him that he had
bettor move his corvette, as he intended
to bouibard the place, and would not
he answerable i'r any damages that
mio'lit result. This rused the ire of
the Greek, and he hastened to inform
theSpauUh Admiral, in language that
was a model of explicit ness and force,
that the fe't. Marys was anchored to
his perfect satisfaction, and would re
main where bhc was, and added fur
" In the event of a bombardment of

that none of your shot touch tho hull

The correspondence was printed in
the Spanish papers, aud, besides cre
ating the greatest enthusiasm for the
plucky Captain, rather opened the eyes
of the Chi'cnos to the tremendous ef
fective furce of our navy at the time.
Hut his action subsequently caused him
no little inconvenience, for whenever he
showed himself on shore he found him
self immediately surrounded by a crowd
of enthusiastic, citizens who attributed
the immunity of their city for a long
time afterward to his refusal, and who
made the hills ring with their vivas for
the brave Americano."

Coming Back on Him. When J.
11. Doolittlc of Wisconsin, left the Re
publican party, Horace Greeley said
this of him :
Able, adroit, and early schooled in
the arts of the self-seeking politician,
he has for years done his 'level best,
against the party which has so honored
and trusted him. He worked like a
beaver, with tongue and pen, to defeat
General Grant, and his labors were
crowned with the largest Republican
vote and the most sweeping Republican
victory ever realized in Wisconsin
We believe the majority there would
have been twenty thousand had he re
mained faithful; it was swelled to
tweqtyfour thousand one hundred and
fifty-two by. the intensity of the popu
lar detestatiou of Doolittle, his works
and his ways.
The Milwaukie, Wis , Sentinel adds :
Tho same " popular detestation "
that was then felt in this State for
Doolittlc is now felt for Greeley.
An Extensive Farmer. An ex
change says : "The Stanislaus county
News of June 28th gays : As an index
to the extent of agricultural productions
of our valley, we need only stato that
we have no one farmer in our midst
whose bill ot expenses for tho one itim
of sacks alone, in which to sack his crop
of the present year, is estimated to be
830,000. This unpretending, plain
citizen is John Mitchell, Esq., of our
county, who has sown grain the present
year on his own lands 30,000 acres.
The question presents itself is not Mr.
Mitchell the greatest wheat producer in
the world? If not, whore is the man
who excels him ? If there can be any
one individual farmer found who sur
passes him, we believe that next year
Mr Mitchell would go him many acres
better, as he has yet thousands of acres
in our valley uncultivated that will bo
ready for the plow. ;
1 Never incur a liability that you
do not clearly see your way to meet.
2 Never upon any account, indorse
a note for a friend, unless either he
gives you ample security, or you can af
ford to pay it, should your friend Jo so.
More men have been ruined by endwrs-
ing for inhere Jhan ia any other way.Tjying that there was no virtue in them,
Many of the best business inea, npw-a-days,
utterly refuse to endorse fr any
one, and this is by far the best plan
except in .certain instances,
3 Never fail to pay a debt upon the
very day you have promised, and upou
no account ever let your note be pro
tested if you can help it. j
4 Never allow yourself to be dun
ned twice for a bill. If you are not
prepared to pay it when first presented
fix a day when you will certainly pay
it, and fail not to bo ready with the
money when the day conies. By ob
serving these rules your credit wilt toon
come to be ranked as A No. 1, and
you will always be able to command the
best bargains, because, as the people
say, "y . areas good as the bank."
5 Never have money layinsr jround
loose," or carry much with you. or ke;p
mueb on hand in your house. People
will find out your habits in this regard
and people will talk, and the first; thing
you know a professional "cracksman"
will pay you a visit. !
G When a sura of money is re
ceived, invest it, first by paying any
debts you owe, second by securing
everything you need, cither for your
family or farm, and third if not re
quired for ithcr of these purposes,
loan it out on good frceurieties.
7 Beware of owning ti;o much un
productive real estate. The j taxes
make this an unprofitable invesMneut.
8 Invest iu no enterprij-e' that you
cannot, to omc extent look after your ,
self, or which von do not fully under
s'and. Much capital is every year
foo'ed awy by investment in concerns
managed by tricky or impracticable
men, which never pay a dividend, and
sooner or later are h11 out to piy the!
debts that have overwhelmed them.
0 Beware of speculation, j It is
only gambling by another name , and
the pero3 indulging in it is far more
likely to lose ten dollars in it than to
make one. j
10 If youshould be in debt for your
homestead, or indeed for any property,
insure your life for an amount sufficient
to pay the debt, should you unexpect
edly drop off, and thus avoid the pos
sibility of your heirs losing the: whole
property, through in ability to ty
ott the claims against it. j
11 Never permit your expenses, in
tho course of a year, to exceed your
income. Bankruptcy is the natural
12 Never go to law without the great
est reasons. It is a game that both
sides jzet hurt at, and the chances are
only about one in three that you will
get what you will consider justice.
The best provision that can ba made
for one's family is a thorough cdacation
for each one ; we mean education in
its broadest sense, embracing the cn

But he is worth fivo million dollars.

Worth five million dollars?! Jeru
salem ! Bro. Smith, introduce me.
Bishop Whitehouse, recently under
took to illustrate a point in his sermon
by telling his congregation howj ho had
once been lost on the prairies of Illi
nois, and had wandered a long time,
weary and hopeless. At last he saw, a
light, and he made his way toward it
shouting for help. "Just as I thought
I could go no further," said the'Bishop,
" and was about sinking down; in dis
pair, tho door of a cabin opened before
me, and the long looked for! tuccor
came." The unintentional pun brought
tee nousc aowa.
..i i .
"All Hands Below."
A good story is told of a parrot, who
had always lived on board a ship, but
who escaped at one of the southern
ports, and took refuge in a church.
Soon afterward the congregation assetn
bled, and the minister bejan preaching
to them, in a regular red-hbt fashion.
that every one of them would go to hell,
unless tbey speedily repented. Just as
he spoke the sentence, out poke the
parrot from his hiding-place :
'All hands below!"
To say that "all hands" were start
led, would be but a mild way of puU
ting it. The peculiar voice, from its
unknown source, had much more effect
upon theoi than the parson's voice ever
had. He waiteu a moineut, and then,
a shade or two paler, he repeated the
'All hands below !" Again rang out
The preucher started from his pulpit,
and looked anxiously around, inquiring
if anybody b.xi spoken.
"All hands below J" was the only re
ply, st which the entire panic-stricken
congregation got up and a moment af
ter they all 'bolted for the doors, the
preacher trying his best lobe first, and
during the lime, the mischievous bird
kept up his yelling :
"Alt hands below !"
There wai an old woman there, who
was lame, and could not ;et out no fast
as tho rest, and, in a very short time,
she was left entirely alone. Just as
she was about to bobble out, the parrot
flew down. ntid. alighting ou her shoul
der, yelled in her ear :
"All hand below I"
"No, no, Mister Devil," shrieked the
old woman ; "you can't meau m. J
don't belong here. I go to the other
church, across the way !"
Here, is another singular coincidence
An Orange county, N. Y., man cut off
hi: forefinger with an ax. What raakc."
this accident a curious one. says a local
paper, is that his father met with pre
cisely the same accident when about
the same ae. It is wonderful how
accidents run in same families r.uw
they arc hereditary, as it were. We
once knew a nun who knocked his head
agaihst a dour, and that man's son was
ever after afflicted with trouble of the
head. lie wbh continually running it
against some other boy's fi-t, and the
amount of court plaster which was used
ou his scalp, the number of kes which
were put on his bck to stop tlu flow
of bfood from his nose, and the qumti
ties ol oysters whieh were applied to
hi eyes to reduce the swelling, were
' appalling to c ntemplate. Wo also
knew another I mnly in winch acci
dents were heridatary. A lady gave
birth to a female child when she was
fifteen years seven months and nine
days old, and that female child was af
flicted in the same way at tho same
ne the only difWcncc of account in
th;s singular coincidence being that the
child thi time was a boy. so the acci
dmt cannot well be repeated.
An individual named Matlock, a res
idctit of Douglas county, h s written a
letter to the New York Tribune , say
ing that Oregon wis carried in June by
fraud, and that Greeley will carry the
vote of the state by one thousand in
November. Mr. Matlock must have
the trick of prophecy, since he has been
a citizen ol Oregon but a short tune,
and cannot possibly know from obser
vation anything about the politics of the
State. Just before the recent election
in this State he appeared in the Rep-
lican Oonv ution soliciting the nomina
tion for Prosecuting Attorney for the
Second Judicial District. He was not
nominated, and went home a "Liberal
Republican.' He "elected" himself a
delegate to the Cincinnati Convention,
and sent his proxy by Jasper Johnson,
telling his neighbors in Douglas county
th it he hoped to find a more "generous"
party thau the one which had meanly
refused to nominate him for office. So
says the Oregon ion
Sensible Advice. A great many
boys, as well as men, complain that they
cannot get employment. Perhaps you
cannot get such a place as you like, but
when you get a place, make yourself
useful in it; make yourself st nece-sary
by your fidelity and good behavior,
that they canuot do without you. Be
content with a low prico ut first, no
matter what the prico ts. if it is hon
est work. Do it well doit tho very
best you can. Begin at the very low
est rouud of tho ladder, and climb up.
The great want anywhere is faithful
capable workers. They are never a
drug in the market. Make yourself
one of these, and there will always bo a
place for you, and a good one! too.
