Life and Death.
Few things are more confounded
than the interest of self preserva
tion and the liar' of death. Be
cause a man struggles for or clings
to life it does not follow that he
has any dread of death. Irration
al attachment is often the antipo
des of conscious terror. Every
one of-ns lias cause and motive to
continue in existence so bmg as he
has health and strength and work
to do; but not one of us has an in
trinsic reason for apprehension in
going out of existence. Life bris
tles will) purposes, activities, re
sponsibilities. AVe cannot separate
ourselves from them if we would,
they will fasfen upon and absorb
us in our despite. Apart "from in
stinct, life has its aims, its interests
and affection that can not be di
voreed "without a desperate strug
gle and exceeding pain. It is the
reflex of his solicitude that makes
in a measure the shadows of death.
We are unwilling rto surrender
what life contains, though we may
not. have the slightest fear of what
dfath Tii ay yield; and yet many of
us are so little inclined to trace our
own mental operations, that we
do not draw the distinction clearly.
The majority of men prefer their
own country and would not will
ingly leave it. Is it to be conclud
ed, therefore, that they are afraid
ot another-, land? Is strong mcb-
natiouto one thing to be interpret- I
ed as a dread, of anovher?- liecause f
we want to live, is it any proof
that we fear to die? Life is a re
ality, a certainty, something expe
rienced and tested over and over
again.0" Death is an idea, an image,
a mystery, from which we shrink
because it is forever impenetrable.
The .shrilling is inherent, but p;iv?s
way to indifference or faith, as
nearness and nature make their
revelations. He who can deliver
oiip. the good and chatms of this
world's being can turn to death
and smile at its reproach. The
eye that is bent upon this life can
not see truly what lies beyond.
The axis of vision is deranged by
the duplex effort; but the secular
objict removed, the spiritual light
A narbcr in Titusville, while
cutting the hair of a rural customer,
ran his shears against some hard
substances, which proved to be
a whetstone. The old farmer said
he '"had missed that whetstone ever
since haying time last July, and
had looked all over a ten-acre lot
for it, but now remembered stick-

Those wlio were acquainted with
General Applegate, says the Ore
tevtnineil, at his lecture last night.
He denionstrateil the advantages
that Oregon oilers to those who
are in search "of homes, by refer
ence to geographical ami historcal
He portrayed the matchless
scenery of our vales and mountains,
and leaping cataracts, in a manner
which, though no stronger than
the truth demands, was well calcu
lated to make his hearers realize
how much nature has done for our I
State, lhat which most deserves
attention, hovever,in this discourse,
was its accurate statements and
strict adherence to the truth. That
deplorable policy which has drain
ed, and is still draining, our coun
try of the fruits of its industry,was
criticised in unsparing terms. With
facilities, enjoyed to an equal ex-
tent by few countries, for the pro-
! duction of everything that mankind
I eat or wear, with every natural
j advantage for manufactures of all
! kinds, we nav all the nronts on our
7 1.- &
bread-stulls and wool and hides
all our exports to foreign lands
i for working up our raw material
into the commodities we need, and
! for transportation to and from the
J manufactories. The remedy for
i this evil and the only possible
t remedy is people, more people.
When our population shall so in
crease that its industries will invite
the tonnage of the seas to our ports,
and when the nation shall turn its
face westward and, reach out its
hands to grasp the trade of the
ml A '
orient only r-ix thousand miles dis
tant instead of standing two thou
sand miles distant instead of stand
ing two thousand miles behind
England and waiting to receive
that portion which she casts awtiy
of a trade that is twenty thousand
miles to the east, Oregon will be
j f t tJ gateway of both
t Jo j
iMiropean and .American commerce.
We or our children will then real
ize the destiny which time has in
store for our State. Ve may has
ten it if we will. The shortest,
road, even from England, to China
and Japan and by so much the
more from America is over the
route of the North Pacific 1 'ail way,
and out at the mouth of the Colum
bia river or the Straits of .Tuan de
Euca. The building of this great
national highway, soon to be com
pleted, together with the great na
tional highway soon to be com
pleted, together with the westward
tide of empire, presents to Oregon
her golden opportunity. Xow is
the time to secure the great de.s'd
cratitht people by spreading a
knowledge of her advantages.
What a Dkixk Costs. The
Xew York World has been figur
ing upon the cost of an occasional
drink, and says :
"Once in a while a pensive man
may bo heard to say, 'I wih I h.-nl
all the money back that I have
spent for drink for the last, ten
years.' No man in twenty, who
retrospectively gazing gives utter
ance to that wish, has in his mind
an approximating estimate of the
amount whieh a person of even
moderate bibulous propensities
may spend upon drink in the 'space
often years. Leaving wines and
expensive liquors out of the ques
tion let us see what a plain cock
tailist,or modest imbiber ofold rye,
is likely to disburse on his favorite
refreshment in the course of a year.
"Take a very moderate man, for
examples Assume that he drinks
every day four glasses of whiskey
at fifteen cents. That amounts to
sixty cents a day, which makes four
dollars and twenty cents a week
multiply by four and you have six
teen dollars and eight v cents a
month, which comes to $201 GO a
year. Thus, if a man who has
gone on at this rate for ten years
had alt his liquor money back, his
pockets would be inflated to the
tune of two thousand and sixteen
dollars. This is only a small beer
calculation, but think of those who
spend five times that sum on ho
nors, and remember that their name

ture, wants, to know "What Hin

jecture concerning the new Cab
inet of President Grant puts the
Hon. Charles Francis Adams in

seek such a man as Mr. Adams for
the new Cabinet." . Q
The history of previous appoint
ments, the character of the Pres
ident's intimacies, and the caste of
men and minds whieh he has in
variably surrounded himself with,
all point to such a choice. ho
ever has remarked the order of
men whom Gen. Grant has made
his familiar and confidentiaJ friends,
the men whose intimacy he has
sought at Long IJranch and in this
city, and with whom he enjoys the
charms of social intercourse in
Washington, will see at once how
lit and characteristic, an appoint
ment this will be ) The statesman
who would not tolerate Secretary
Cox and Judge Hoar in his polit
ical family, who never offered Gen.
Ilawley a Cabinet or other appoint
ment, who kept at a distance such
groveling persons as Sumner,
Schuiz, Trumbull, and Austin lilair
in order that he might enjoy the
society, and advice of Chandler
and Uutler, wdl be very likely to
call the great statesman of Xew
England to the portfolio of State.
And Mr. Adams what more
congenial place could he find than
in such a Cabinet ami such an Ad
ministration ? What more charm
ing society could he desire than
that of JJobeson ami Cresswell?
What pleasanter duty than to sit
in consultation with such statesmen-upon
measures for the pacifi
cation of the South, lo devise
methods for the promotion of a
Casey, of a Pinchback, ami a Ktl
logg, or invent compromises lor
contesting fictions of carpet-baggers
in Alabama? Then, too, it
will be so in harmony with his
Xew England notions to carryout
in the State Department, the policy
of annexation of tropical islands;
the magnificent schemes of Daricu
ship canals and laud-locked water
communication from Maine to the
Gulf of Mexico will be so accord
ant with his views ; and above all,
it will so delight him to make out
for the President's signature such
appointments as that of Cramer as
Minister to Denmark and that of

beeit to stickrto anything I could

will find that the wise course. It

A poor laborer of Ohio had rais
ed with the greatest possible care
and attention, a nursery of vines,
from which after much labor, he at
last succeeded in raising a pipe of
Catawba wine, and forgot in the
joy of his success, that each drop
of this precious nectar had cost a
drop of sweat on his brow.
"r will sell it," said he to his
wife, and with the proceeds 1 will
buy lace, which will serve you to
make a present to our daughter."
1 he honest countryman arriving
in Cincinnati there met an Eng
lishman and a Yankee.
The Yankee said to him : "Give
me j-our wine, and I will give you
fifteen bundles of Yankee lace."
The Englishman said : "Give me
your wine, and I will give you
twenty bundles of English lace, for
we English can spin cheaper than
3 Hut a Custom-house officer, who
happened to be standing by, said
to the laborer: "My good fellow
make your exchange if you choose,
with Brother Jonathan, but it is
my duty to prevent your doing so
with the Englishman."
"What!" exclaimed the country
man, "'you wish me to take fifteen
bundles of New England laee,when
I can have twenty from Manches
ter." Certainly," replied the Custom-
house ollicer ; "do you not see that
the United States would be loser
if you wen- to receive twenty bun
dle's instead of fifteen ?" C
"I can scarcely understand this,"
said the laborer.
"X'or can I explain it," said the
Custom-house officer, "but there is
no doubt of the fact ; for Congress
men, ministers- ami editors all
agree that a people is impoverished
in proportion as it receives a large
compensation for any given qaun
tity of its produ.ee."
The countryman was obliged to
conclude his bargain with the
Yankee. His daughter received
but three-fourths ot her present:
and these good folks are still puz
zling themselves to discover how
it can happen that people are ruin
ed by receiving four instead of
three; ami why they are richer
with three dozen bundles of lace
than with four.
Ac of Public Men.
Mr. Greeley was younger than
many men whose names are asso
ciated with his own American po
litical historv or who have been on
the stage of public life during rhe
whole or a portion of his career. Mr.
Seward lived to the age of seventy
one. Thurlow Weed still lives at
the age of seventy-five.' Mr. Web
ster was sevent y when he died, and
Henry Clay, to whom Mr. Greeley
was devotedly attached, was seventy-five.
"Old Ben. Vade" enjoys
very fair health at the age of seventy-two.
Mr. Chase is seventy
four, and Mr. Sumner is only Mr.
Greeley's age. The late James
Gordon Bennett was seventy-one
when he died, and Martin Van Bu
ren was eighty. The newly elected
Governor of Xew York is older
than Mr. Greeley by thirteen years.
If we look to other countries, and
turn to men who have led very ac
tiveand hard-working lives, we
find the comparison equally strik
ing. M. Thiers is seventy-live.
Lord Brougham lived to the age of
niiu ty-three 'no doubt an excep
tional" instance; but the Premier of
England. Mr. Gladstone, is sixty
three and his great opponent, Mr.
Disra?!i is sixty-seven, six years Mr.
Greeley's senior. Palmerston lived
to the "age of eighty-one. ami the
present Chancellor of the Exche
quer, Robert Lowe, is only Mr.
Greeley's age, and is expected to do
a great deal of hard night work,to
say nothing-of his incessant office

Oar Postal Growth.
Rapid is the growth of this coun
try in wealth and population, its
postal growth is yet more wonder
ful. In I860, with a population of
thirty-one and a half millions, two
hundred sixty millions of letters
passed through the mails; eight
letters for every man, womamnnd
child in the country." In 1S70, the
population had grown to thirty
nine millions, while the number of
letters had increased to six hundred
and ten millions, or sixteen letters
per capita per annum ;" an increase
of one hundred per cent, in letters,
to twenty-live per cent, in popula
tion. In other words, letters in
crease four times as fast as popula
tion. Part of this increase may be
due to better education, but most of
it is the expansion of business. The
proportion is far greater in cities
than in the country. In Washing
ton's Presidency, four millions of
people sent three hundred thousand
letters a year, only one letter for
every thirteenth person each year.
During the past fiscal year, the
nation has paid fifteen and a half
millions of dollars for the transpor
tation of the mails; twenty years
ago it paid less than five millions.
This would indicate that postal ex
penses double themselves every ten
years. Each year puts nine hun
dred new postoflices iiCopperation,
and carries the mail about seven
thousand more miles. In 1S17, Mr
Joseph Dodd was appointed to car
ry the "Great Southern Mail" from
New York post oflice across the
ferry. Wheeling it to the water's
edge in his wheel-barrow, he trans
ported it across the ferry mN his
open boat to the waiting stage
During the present year, nearly
eight tons of mail-matter daily

Railroad alone. Should the postal
growth of the next half century
equal the per eentage of the last, its

fslIAKSPEUE IN DISGRACE.
The Mayor of a well known
town in Blankshire became the
patron of the theatre under Mr.
Macready's management, in ISoO,
and gave a hundred guineas for a
box for the season. This liberal
ity did not arise from any particu
lar taste for dramatic literature, or
any other kind of literature, but
he paid thus handsomely for the
box because he was a liberal man,
liked g'diig to the play, and his
predecessor in ollicepaid the same
sum, and he would not be out
done. He attended every night,
was always pleased, and very
friendly with the manager.
One night, Mr. Macready made
his appearance in Hamlet, a play
in which the Mayor had never
seen him ; and -when, in the mad
scene, Hamlet appeared with his
dress in disorder, the Mayor took
offense at the exhibition, ami de
clared to his family, who were in
the box with him, his conviction,
that the actor was drunk, and he
would have no such doings if he
could help it. So accordingly he
went round to the stage, and wait
ed at the sidetill the end of the
scene, when he thus addressed the
"Mr. Macready, till to-nigltt I
looked upon you as a respecta
ble man, and now I see you are
given to drink, for no sober man
would go before a-, respectable
audience with his shirt frill hang
ing obout like that, and his stock
ings down. Why, you ought to
be ashamed of yourself!"
The tragedian astonished at the
ignorance of his patron, said :
"My dear sir, you are quite mis
taken, I assure you.w I only ad
here to the author's instructions in
respect to the disordered dress, to
show " . C O O
.Who wrote this play?" de
manded the Ala y or.
"Goodness gracious!'"- exclaimed
Macready ; "don't you know Shak
spere wrote it ?"
"I can't say that I do," replied
the Mavor; "but I will take care
that he writes no more for this
house as long-as I have anything
to do with it, and soyou may tell
