busied himself in unpacking his trunk.

A Thrilling Adrenttire. ..;
, The Nashville Union says: When
contumely is sought to bo given a per
son the name of a dog b often used,
and yet this brute, most frequently ol
any o'her, is man's best friend and
faithful protector. Wednesday after
noon as Mm W. G. Woodruff was in
her yar I near the race track, she saw
mad dog making toward her, evidently
desirous of making an attack. Jt4ng
some distance from the house toe far,
in fact, to reach the door before the
ui td dog could seize her, the affrighted
lady thought of her own fuithful dog,
which she c tiled to her a-tsiatance.
Hearing the scream and call of her
mistre-s, the do, with an alacrity which
seemed to spring from a consciousness
of impending danger, bounded for

just as the infuriated beast, was about
toseize Mrs. Woodruff- Now ensued
a conflict between the two dos which
lasted two or three minutes, enablin;
Mrs. Woodruff ti get into .her house
and shut tlit door. It was doubtful
which would prove the mastery, when (
i colored man came to the scene of con.
fiict. No sooner had he neared the
logs thin the rabid une attacked the
colored man, who. having picked up a

Au Historical Parallel.
From the Oregonian.
Prior to the year 1812 the old Fed
eral party had 'been successively de
feated in three Presidential election.
For twelvo years they had been exlcud
ed from power. For. the same period
the Democratic party has been out of
power. In the year 1812 opposition
arose in the dominant party to the re
election of President Madison. That
opposition wat lea by Do Witt Clinton,
of New York, a mart with large ability
and experience, a statesman of wide
celebrity, whose talent and character
commanded universal respect. A large
section of the party was opposed to the
re election of Madison. They claimed
that it wou!d be disastrous to force him
on the party a second time. The De
mocracy contained a peace party and a
war party. There was an anti-administration
split-off. Promiuent tnon.
Senators and Represenatives in Con
gress, leading politicians in various
parts of the country, deserted Madisou.j
Foremost among them was Senator
Giles, of .Madison's own State (Virginia)'
a man of great power. These aoti ad
ministration elements tried to prevent
the re nomination of Madiou, as Schrux
Trurnble and Feuton tried to prevenj
tho re-oomination of General Grant!
and failed. They theu bolted aud
nominate J a .candidate .of their own
This caodidate was Hi Witt Clinton!
The old Federal party then occupied
precisely the position that the Demo
eratic 4arty occupy now. Long out of
power, thr thought they really saw
their opportunity. They gathered in
New iork to uomin.ite candidates.
Clinton was urged upon them. It
was a bitter pill, for Clinton Lad always
been a Democrat ol thr JefJeMun school.
The question was whether it would he
possible to swallow Clinton for lhe sake
f victory. iinally the o'd traditions
f the party were laid upon the altar.
Anything to beat Madison" proved
the aiucces ful war cry, and (Tntou wa
ndorscd for President, with Jarcd Ir
gersotl for Vice Pieaident. Thus the
canvas- of 1812 presents a complete
analogue of the canvass of 1872, only
then the snlit off was from the Democ
racy and the ''Feds" fnrnished the "big
end' of tho transaction. I
The campaign was an unusually ex
cit'mc one. but the outcome was a tri
umph for th "straight." Madison
received of the clectorial vote 128,
Clinton SD.whilc (Jerry as Vice Presi
dent received lol and Ingoroll 80. j
The "Liberal" Democratic move
ment of 1812 was precisely analagwus
to the "Liberal Republican movement
of today. The Federals "endorsed"
the bolt and accepted its candidate, pre
cisely as the Democrats have done now.
Nothing is wanting to complete the
parallel but the defeat of the combina
tion now, as it was defeated then.
This final act will be consumatcd I in
November. A party which abandons
its prin :iplcs for the sake of expediency,
invariably comes to grief. It was j so
with the Federal party in 1812; it was
so with the Whig party in 18i)2 ; and
will be so with the Democratic party in
The New York papers are full of par
ticulars of the killing of Fisk. The
jury is a model, being composed of men
who cannot read the papers, who hear
no news, who see nothing, who have
no opinions, and without sufficient
sense or independence to have opinion
stupid, ignorant and senseless. That
is the only kind of men that are fit tor
juries, according to the notions of
New York eriminal courts.
Then the counsel who defends crim
inals in New York are often a ruffianly
as their clients. MeKeon is coarse,
brutal and vendictive. Snapping at
opposing eojinsel with a bull-djog's
ferocity, 'covertly insulting the court,
and badgering and abusing witnesses as

About Whiskers. The HilUboro
(North Carolina) lUvieic gives us this
bit of information concerning whiskers:
Did you know that iu 1810 a pair of
whUkcrsor such a thing us a mustache
was abominated iu this stction ? We
know a promiuent gentleman of this
town who says he never saw a man with
a beard tilt 1850; that his father, as
other old gentlemen of the town, never
wure a whisker, but ahived evrey
nioriiinr. and taught their children that
" whiskers were an abomination and a
sio " lie says that at Chapel liili, in
1810, a young gentlemin came from
llaleigh (und now a prominent citizen
of that city) made a weak attempt to
raise a mustache, aud it raised such a
commotion that tho Faculty took "hold
of it and sent the Uev. Dr. Deems,
now of New York, and then one of the
Hoard, to the young man to reason with
him, and get him to have his upper
lip. The Dr. appealed to the young
man, for the sake of his sainted father,
to cut it off, and if uut for his sake,
for G jd's sake to cut it off. And the
hairs disappeared. Only sports and
circus riders wore whiskers in those
days. Our iuformant uow wears a
heavy beard, and is not h little j.rou l of
his mustache. How times do change.

fashionable sthreet they've got ?"
" That isn't a nigger Tom," said I ;
"that's the great Clay statue "
" Might I go look at it?"
Tom galloped off, on my permission,
rode around the statue, dismounted, and
climbed up on the granite pedestal ;
and then mounting his horse again, he
