TU1T SECOND N1TE.
Out from the mouth of Fuca's strait.
Into the dark and stormy night
Deck In charce of the second mate
Vc bade yood-by to Flattery Light. '
Mate in 'briel authority" dressed, .
Hark! do you hear him haze th crew?
Angels tears would suit him best;
Cowardly cur, I warrant you.
Grhn and stark, with the hoarsest Tolce;
Curse or blow f r the merest thing;
I wonder that our Captain's choice .
Gave such a brute his petty swing.
Captain Morse, of the kindest face,
Coolest head, and the warmest heart,
Hitfhc3t type of the sailor race
How can he take that bully's part?
Musing thus as I iaced the deck,
' Plunged the boat in the rising sea
Crash! and we lie a helpless wreck;
' Zecki wave-swept and the rocks alee.
Shaft has snapped in the starboard box!
Wheel still hangs by the broken end
God! do you feel those dreadful shocks?-
That mass of iron the bi!ge will Fend
Above the roar of wind and wave,
O'er the cries of the frightened throng,
King3 the voice of the Captain brave,
All cool and steady, clear and strong:
"Fill with water the starboard boats
She won't capsize if the great wheel drops.
Don't give up while the old ship floats;
Fetch a scope of chain, and good, stout stops.
"Cut a hole in the paddle box;
Bend a line tojthat cable ring;
Quk'k!' with your strongest tackel-hlocks
Which of you dares secure that thing?"
Whoever wants to go to hell,
Follow me!" cries that brutal mate.
Just as sure as I'm here to tell,
There was notone to hesitate!
"Two are enough V' the captain cries
All of the crew would follow him;
Hi is ship is saved, or a hero dies
Christ what a sea she wallows in!
Into that plunging wheel they go,
Climbing over the slippery arras;
Churned by the surges to and fro,
Threatened each step with direst harms.
Instant death if the great wheel drops!
Certain death if they lose their hold!
Death is the only thing can stop
THe way of men thus truly bold.
Ages, it seems, with choking throats,
Ws stand and watch the seething brine.
Hurrah! o'er the mossy paddle: floats
Stagger the men; they've past the line!
"Reeve the chain, and snug and taut;
Lash the wheel to the steamer's side.
Cheer my hearties; the fight is fought;
Under sail she will safely ride."
Wonderful how that mate can change.
Seen from a different point of view!
Captain's choice doesn't seem so strange;
Judge of men! and a good one, too!
Second mate was born to command.
Regular sailor, truck to keel;
Bough of speech, and of heavy hand.
But heart as true as the finest steel.

No small amount of bosh has been
written concerning tears. Poets and
other speculative people hare raved a
g:od deal alout the influence of woman's
tears. In practical lite those notions
are found to be illusive and erroneous.
Some silly women resort to tears to
excite sympathy or secure favors. It
seldom succeeds. The average mau
dislikes a weeping woman, so much so,
that he is willing to promise almost any
thing, to act very foolishly even, to iu
auce tier to "dry up. In this way
tears are powerful persuaders. It is
not as generally known perhaps as it
ought to be that there is nothing that
brings so soon the "crow's feet," those
odious wrinkles around the eyes, us the
habit of weeping. No woman who de
sires to retain the bloom and beauty of
youth can afford to yield to the tempta
lion of having "a good cry" every time
she feels slightly hysterical. The la
chrymose woman soon becomes preuia
turely old looking and wrinkled. Weep
ing dims the lustre of the eyes and
makes the nose red. Don t do it.
Smiles and good humor constitute the
famous cestus or girdle of Venus, which
has the power of giving to any woman
who wears it irresistible charms in the
eyes of whomever she tfisb.es to please,

In many Districts the public schools
will resume work in a few days. In an
abstract kind of way most people desire
the school to be a success, but very tew
are willing to do anything to contribut
towards that success. The average par
eut is not willing to relinquish a single
prejudice to aid the work. Few will
visit the school and judge for themselves
of what the teacher is doing. They pre
fer to abide by hearsay except in the
matter of finding fault. This they at
tend to in person. Judging by hearsay
is an evidence of modesty, an admission
that if they did visit the school they
would not be capable of patsing upon
the merits of the methods employed.
There are a few narrow-minded, illiber
al individuals who pride themselves
upon their notions of economy, who
have the peculiar idea that teachers are
purse-proud people, high-headed up
starts who teed upon tbe fat of the land,
whose salary is always too great, who
ned to be continually snubbed to keep
theiu in their proper place. The intelli'
gent taxpayers of some school diatricts
have been known to elect one of this
kind as a school director. To make the
teacher "come down a notch" is the aim
of the arrogant ignoramus. To elevate
and dignify the responsible dutv of
teaching is beyond the grasp at the gro
velling mind. It i indeed sad to reflect
how few people, parents, take an active
interest in the education of their child
ren. Perhaps people do not really be'
lieve that there is ranch advantage to
be gamed from a public school course of
training, perhaps they just send their
children to school because it is the "pro
per thing" to do, or because they want
their share ef the school fund: If peo
ple actually believed that a common
school course of training was a geuuine
and great benefit to their children they
could not possibly be as indifferent re
garding it as they now are.
Mrs. Clemraer buttled into tbe parlor
and seated herself in an easy ehair by
tbe window -with the expectant curiosi
ty of a weman.
Dinner was over and Mr. Heath, one
of the boarder, had asked a private in
terview. She felt a little nervous at ihe
request. What could it mean?
Was he dissatisfied? That could
hardly bs; he had been there for three
years, and she had often remarked that
he really seemed, almost, like one of
the family; and as Mrs. Clemmer was a
widow, with neither kith nor kin, her
neighbors smiled significantly at the
oft-repeated remark, and ene even ven
tured Co surmise that Mr. LTeath might,
if he those, fill the vacancy in the Clem
mer family that had Jjeen left by Mrs.
Clemmer '8 husband, the departed Jeremiah.
Mrs. Clemmer was only forty, a
stout, fair, good-natured woman, at
peace with herself and the world gen
erally, and the gray cottage with its
rose-wreathed windows and verandas
that had been left to her by her deceased
husband, was free Irqm incumbrance. "
In a financial point of view Mrs. Clem
mer was very capable, and her nail
dozen boarders furnished the means to
meet her household expenses, besides a
surplus that went to increase her bank
Early in the spring 'here had been an
innovation upon her " long-established
rule, which had hitherto read, "For
gentlemen only," and she had taken a

musical voice, and large, dark eyes, full
of pathos. She was a widow, though
several years had elapsed since her hus
band's death and she bad laid aside her
weeds; yet she still clung to subdued
lavender tints, that reminded one of
trouble at some past time.-
She bad "really, with her charming
ways, taken Mrs. Cleiiimer's heart by
storm, and she was installed in a pleas
ant, Home-like suit of rooms with a
southern and western outlook, where
the Graceful elms htinz their leafy
branches, protectingly, about her case
ment, and from their nests, on the
swaying boughs, the twittering sparrows
came down and took crumbs tram Mrs.
Hiirtelle's daiuty tinkers.
She had such a taking way, Mrs.
Clemmer remarked of her, and the quiet
widow was, indeed, a general favorite
with her boarders.
She spent the most of her time in her
own room, though sometimes she came
down just at twilight to the parlor and
invoked sweet strains from the old
She sang old Scotch and English bal-
ladr, quaint and homely but full ef gen
uine emotion, and Mr. Heath would
listen till the tears ran down his plump
cheeks, for he was of English birth, and
those old songs touched a tender chord.
In her own room, Elsie Hartelle bus
ied herself with brush and pencils; for
she had artistic tastes, although she
made no pretentions to being an artist;
but her fancies for fine views, and for
grouping gracefully together flowers and
leaves, found expiession en plaques and
panels, and Mrs. Clemuier's brackets
aud mantels were filled with her pretty
and quaint designs, while Mr. Heath
had been made the happy recipient of a
plaque, on which a cluster of English
primroses were grouped so naturally
that they seemed almost to have been
transported from his island home,
Hijhly prized were the flowers for
the associations they awakened, but
even more for the sake of the giver; for
with her sweet, womanly ways, the quiet
widow had stirred in the bachelor heart
of William Heath, a feeling of deep re
spect and-admiration, ami never having
known aught of the tender passion, he
fancied himself in love.
A man that reaches the maturity of
fifty years unscathed by cupid's arrows,
cannot certainly be called susceptible,
but may be set down as a veritable rat a
avis among his friends; but the inter
view with Mrs. Clemmer, which he had
requested, was to usher in the dawn of
a new era in his existence.
The object of that interview, however,
did uot seem very plain, for Mr. Heath
cleared his throat, preliminarily, and
wiped the perspiration from his fuming
brow, and spoke casually of the exces
sive heat; while Mrs. Clemmer, with a
calmness which was only seeming, sat
in nerveus expectancy of what was to
"I have been thinking, Mrs. Clem
mer," he began at last, "that I have
been one of your family, so to sneak.
for quite a long time, three years or
more, is it not?" and the lady gave an
affirmative nod, as she woudered if he
were abeut to propose.
"Three years is time enough to make
one feel acquainted, and I have a high
opinion of yonr judgment, Mrs. Clemmer.",

last effort to bring things to a crisis,
she suddenly remembered that she had
left a loat of electiou cake in the oven,
and started kitchenward with the im
portant subject of discussion still un
settled, while Mr. Heath, with intense
anxiety to have the business settled at
once and forever, went straight o Mrs.
Hartelle's parlor (Joar.
His call was not a long one, yet suffi
ciently SQ to convince him that the lady
bad no intention whatever of a second
marriage; there was ample time, though,
for her to bring her friend, Mrs. Clem
mer, to the front as the woman, pf a.lj
others, most likely to reuder hjrfl su
premely happy; and when he left her
door he did not certainly have the ap
pearance of a heart-broken man; hut
with the vague wonder whether men
usually had such a serious time of it
with their wooing, he bent his steps
kitchenward, and as Mrs. Clemmer de
posited her delicate loaf of election cake
upon the table, she turned about to see
the stout form of William Heath framed
in the doorway.
"I want my answer," he tjd, with
an expression on his florid face that
hardly seemed the proper thin" for a
man who had just been rejected
"I have not heard the question yet,"
Mrs. Clemmer said, in a decidedly non
"Will you marry me? that's the ques
tion," he affirmed,
"If yeu are sure that yon love me,'
Mrs. Clemmer answered, impressively,

cake from the oven, an4 as William,
Heath impressed a kiss upon her rosy
lips, he declared himself sure of the fact.

with this unanswerable argument in fa

there was great an i general provocation
to revolt, no suoh harnionioBS action in
favor of secession eoald have been take
by the Southern. States. It will not be
fergettdn by those who participated in
the discussions of the Thirty-sixth Con.
Cress, which preceded and pranged the
(war, that great attempts were than
made by eminent statesmen to stay tit
progress ef secession. Nor. were these
attempt eentnid to the Senatsxaad ta
House. ., TBif vera made in "Pea
Conventions, and in ether bodies wh,ich
had great influence with business hoards,
arid State Legislatures. Those who
thus acted miiat have had hopeful rea
son for their attempts, to reconcile the
sections. The faults we.re. net all on
cne side. The greatest grievance ef the
Spuh was not, perhaps, as openly ex
pressed as it might have been The
m,oral sense of mankind did not sustain
the institution of slavery. The breaches
of the Constitution, in respect to tbe
fugitive-slave law, had been frequent
and aggravating. That 1T had been
maintained hi decision of tho Supreme
Court. Its violation was a pregnant
cause of complaint. On constitutional
grounds, that law should have been sus
tained. The action ef certain States of
the North in obstructing its execution,
notably in Wisconsin and Ohio, was de
fended in and out of Congress on moral,
constitutional and legal grounds. Even
such eminent ruen a Salmon P. Chw,
then Governor of Ohio, when the fa-
ons Oberlin ease of Plumb, Peck, et
al, was before the State Court upon
the writ of habeas corpus, 'did net hesi
tate to affirm that personal liberty was
f greater moment than tho ppnt,itu-
tion; that State rights were superior to
Federal decrees; and that no mandate
of the Federal government should be
obeyed for the return of human beings
It is well known that Mr. Chase ad-
vjsed Mr. Lincoln to let the seceding
States. go, rather than resort to armed
coercion. Indeed, Mr. Chsn bad
preaca4 the State rights theory all his
life, in justification of State resistance
to the enforpement ef the fugitive-slave
law. From the ease of Jones vs. Van
aat in 1843, t the celebrated Oberlin
fugitive-slave rercuo case. Ex parte
Langsfon add ' Ep"part$ Bhnell, in
159, reported in the Ninth Ohio State
Reports, tlje Ohio friends et Chase did
not hesitate tq express, in the most un
qualified manner, their determination to
nullify any Federal law or act of which
they did not approve, in connection
with the slavery question.
The cases of Langston and Bushnell
were prosecuted on a writ ef habeas cor
pus, by the State Attorney-General, C.
P. Wolcotl, under the direction of Gov
ernor Chase, for the telease of those
parties who had been convicted under
the Federal statute, and in a Federal
Court, tor violating the fugitive-slave
law. On that occasion Governor Chase
openly declared that he would sustain
by force, if necessary, the decision of
the Supreme Court of Ohio against the
decision of the Supreme Court of the
United States, even if it should Tesult
in a collision between the State and the
General Government. Not at any time
in South Carolina, among the most ar
dent ef the Calhoun school, was "aullit
hcation more rife er aggressive than
among the Ohie abolitionists. What
eared either ef these factionists for ar
gument? They believed they were
right; and if the Constitation disagreed
with their theories, the Constitution
must go not their theories. S.S. Cox,
