Newspaper LAWS. —We would call the jpeciai
atteution of Post Masters and subscribers to the
[xvttrißEß to the following synopsis of the News
1. A Postmaeter is required to give notice
( returning & tvaper d<ss not answer the law)
when a subscriber does not take his paper out of
the office, and state the reasons tor its not being
taken: and a neglect to do so makes the Postmas
ter repeonrible to the publishers for the payment.
2. Any person who takes a paper from the Post
effice. whether directed to his name or another, or
whether he has subscribed or not is responsible
for the pay.
3. If a person orders his paper discontinued, he
muJt pay all arrearages, or the publisher may
continue to send it until payment is made, and
ollect the whole amount, eketker it be taken from
ike office or not . There can be a. icgal discontin
uance until the payment is made.
4. If the subscriber orders his paper to be
stopped at a certain time, and the publisher eon
tmues to send, the subscriber is bound to pay for
it, */ he takee it out of the Poet Office. The law
proceeds upon the ground that a man must pay
for what he uses.
5. The courts have decided that refusing to take
newspapers and periodicals from the Post office,
or removing and having them uncalled for, is
prima facia evidence of intentional fraud.

the character of the notes presented to them
has been left to the discretion of the officers
themselves. The Department has never

SAN FRANCISCO MINT ROBBERT.— The
San Franeiseo Chronicle of the says:
For several (lays i ast Gtoeral La Grange,
the Special Agent of the Treasury Depart
ment, has been investigating an affair re
specting the abstraction of about T2o ounces
of gold baliion fiom the office of William
Schujoiz, the former Coiner in the Mint.
The deficit was first discovered by Mr.
Scbmolz on the 3d of Augorf, while making
up his account of coinage from the Ist ot
Julv to the last day of the same month.
This loss was immediately made known to
Dr. Lindcrman, and that officer, acting un
der instructions from the Government, com
mc-nced an investigation on the 14th instant.
Three days after, General La GraDge entered
upon the duties of his office, and was in
formed of the deficit which had occured in
the office of the Coiner. It is alleged that
this deficiency occurred between the Ist of
July and the Ist of August, and that cwiog
to the confusion which existed on account of
the change of offices, some one abstracted
the bullion from the (Joiner's office. It has
been stated that Mr. Schwolz intend* to
place securities for payment of the amount
missing from the Treasury in the hands of
Mr. Swain, the late Superintemiaot. The
matter is still being investigated, and at last
accounts no cloe bad been found to fasten
suspicion on any one.

Through reedy fens its sluggish current flows,

With pollened bees about them humming
And in the meadow-lands the drowsy kine.

Sounds to its mate a note of love or warn
And tnrtle doves re-echo, plaintively,
From upland fields, a soft melodious mourn

A golden suuehine slants acroi- the mead

But beauty lingers iu these Autumn shad

"Thank fate I sha'l never be the prey of
a fortune hunter."
As Sally Rcauriere ottered the words she
threw h-. rself back upon the sofa and tossed
her hands- me head with a little laugh.
"Your fortune is yoar face." rejoined her
companion, as he gazed admiringly on her
fine features, fsally opened her large eyes :
"A compliment from you Tom !" she ex

To tell the truth Turn Middleton had for
a long time loved Miss with all the
strength ol an earnest and constant nature :
but he was very diffident, he had shrank
lioni making known his attachment, fearing
Sally - ridicule, though had he been more 1
confident of himself he might have read :
long ago a secret that Sally's eyes tcok little j
paias to conceal. But Tom never imagined j
how Je.-iral lo a fellow he was in himself,
and knowing he had no great fortune to
bestow, he did not venture to offer his hand :
to the duughtcr of Senator Beauclere, and
the reigning belie of the city. Sally was
one of a large family, it is true, and portion
less, but her father's position and her own
beau'y made Turn imagine her to be far re
moved from him. Now, he only looked
hurt when she thus playfully sneered at hi
small compliment and turning away to the
window did not catch the tender look that
stole over Sally's hand-ume features.
"Well, what is the weather?" she asked,
after a mom nt, as he still stood gazing out
into the night.
"It i- a beautiful moonligbt, anl I think
I had better go."
"Go! Ob, Turn ! Why this is the last
time I shall -ee you for ever ,-o long."
"Aod will you care?" he asked, as he
came to hi r -ide.
Sally blushed. "Of c urse I shall care.
"No, Sally, to-morrow you are going to
i Washington. Yon will be a belle there, as
as you are everywhere, and you will soon
i forget me."
"No, indeed, Tom !" she replied ramest
: ly. "Among all those strange faces and
; people I don't care anything about, I shall
; long for n.y old friends."
But not me. You won't care much
whether 1 am among the number or not."
"Yes I shall."
Tom was a foe! where women were con
ccrocd, or he would have known what those
words in that soft tone meant. As it wa.s
a wild hope did spring up in his heart,
but when he looked again at that beautiful
woman it died away. "I am net briiliaot,
enough for her," he thought, hut lie plaek
el up sufficient courage to put out his hand
and take one of hers.
"You are very kind. Sally," he said. "I
shall come on to Wa.-hington by aDd by,
and then I shall know how sincere your
Sally's checks burnt; but at that moment
the door opened. Tom dropped her hand,
as owe of the numerous young sifters came
in, and the golden opportunity passed away,
for they were not together again for that
On that very same night, nearly a thous
and miles miles away, two young gentlemen
were speaking of this same young lady.
They were travelers, who had accidentally
met on board a steamer on ]>ake Erie.
Thev were total strangers, and wtre igno
rant of even each others name, but had fal
len into a chat as they strolled on the deck,
uddor the rays of the full moon.
"I never was so far from land before in
my life," said the elder of the two, a fine
looking man perhaps thirty-five.
"Indeed 1" exclaimed his companion, a
handsome city-bred looking gentleman.
"May I ask where you are from, that yout
experience has been so limited ?"
"Prom the interior of North Carolina."
"Ah!" cried the stringer, and his c,ll
features li* up into sudden interrst. Then
terhipa you knew the Beaueere's

'Mi.-s Sally is the daughter of the first

It ts, any a noble girl. Why she is

i claimed the North Carolinian entbusiasti
His eomftinion started a little at the
i words, but thangc-d the conversation to
j other subject-, and before long the twogen
. t ■ tnea parted for the night, still in igno
• rSiSee of each others names. They did not
meet again, hut in the morning exchanged
j merely a distant bow as they left the boat in
] opposite directions.
The weeks passed on, and Sally Beau- j
elere *•*- ablished with her parents at i
IV illard s Hotel in \\ ashingtoo. As Mid
j die ton had predicted her beauty and talents
• drew around her a circle of admirers, and
j before !• u she was established as one of the
j reigning belles of Washington.
The adriiiratiou and adulation that she re-
I ceivd Sally found more intoxicating and
| delightful than -he had imagined. It was
very pleasant to be the beauty of every ball
room and constantly surrounded by a circle
of admirers. The idea of returning to the
hum irum life of home was not always pleas
ant to her, and -he sometimes felt half in
clined to think seriously of accepting some
l of th brilliant offers that were made to her.
She had been a good deal put out too with
Tom for not speaking before she came away.
Sometimes she was half inclined to doubt
h ; s love for her. and although his earnest
eye- haunted her with their wi-tful look of
aff -ctioo, -he had more than one serious
thought of trying tobani-h his remembrance
and marry, a- many others around her did,
fir money rather than love.
51 >st prominent among her sworn admir
ers wa- Mr. Charlton Murray, of New
Y<> k. Handsome, distinguished looking,
an 1 reputed to be of great wealth, he seem
ed to be a match not to be despised. Since
the in >mtnt <•( hi- first inti duetion to Sally
he had devoted himself to her most persist
ently. Every diya bi qu-1 of fresh flower
came to Ltr ii em v-i'h l is compliments;
evcty morning he hung over her chair;
every evening be wa- ready to attend her
at the receptions.
Sally, to tell the trulh, wa- very we'll
pleased with his admiration—h understood
-o well how to f lay the agreeable, he paid
such pretty compliments, he was so hand
some and thorough bred. He had already
made his propo-a!in form, and Sally was
iisienme to his ■ arncst t leading, as they sat
half hidden fr.ra ob-ervatioD in one of the
deep windows of the L-oel parlor.
"Pray Mi-- Sally think favorably of my
suit. Mj hopes of happiness, my future
life depend upon your reply."
The wordi were earnest, the tone impas
sioned. Saiy s eht-i k burned as she hesi
tated for a reply. "I have known you for
so short at tne," she faltered.
"What ii that? You have known me for
five we k-, and during that time have seen
lite m re "requently than you would in a
whole year under different circumstances.
I have knovn you buig enough to love you
—madly, di-:ractedly love you I And you
have kuowi me long enough to bid me at
She did rt reply, and he bent toward
her, taking h'-r band in his eagerness.
"Sally, my dearest Sally."
His wurd- :nd actions r-called her to her
position, and she drew back.
"Yon may forget where you are, slr.
At that moment she caught sight of a
gentleman who was talkiuc with her father.
"There is an old friend of mine. I must go
and .-peak to him. And she sprang up
wlti out any reply to her impassioned suitor.
"Murray looked after her with a -mile of
triumph. He bad little doubt of his ulti
"Mr. Trnmbull, how do you do ?" cried
Su !y as she can e forward.
"Ah. Miss Silly, I am glad to see you
aeain," exclaimed the gentleman. The
dissippaton of Washingt a ha-not spoiled
you. I see you are more blooming than
Sally laughed and blushed.
"Come, now, pa. don't you bore Mr.
Trumbull with pi Pic*, but let me have him
for awhile to tell mo how every one is at
Senator Bcauclere, after a few more words,
turned away, and Sally and her old friend
:at down side by side. Mr. Trumbull had
married or.e of her school-mates, and she
regarded him almost as a brother.
"Well, Miss Sally, tell me about your
beaux. Whose heart have you broken
Involuntarily Sally glanced towards
Murray, who -tmd in the window regarding
her with j alous eyes.
"Nobody's," she replied liph'iy: but Mr.
Trumbull's look followed her
"Why, who is that fellow th it "is welch

"Mi. Murray, of New York, if you
mean the young gentleman in the window."
''lt is the very man I saw last fall, and
spoke to of you," said Mr. Trumbull. "Has
he been making love to you?"
"What did he say about me?" asked
Sally, ignoring his last words'
"Ha did not say much, he a.-ked a great
many qut.-tions about you. But, say, has
he proposed to you?"
"Never mind whether he has or not,
but tell me what he said," urged Sally
"He a ked if your father was rich, for one
"And vhat did you sav?"
'I said yes."
"And what el-e? Tell ins all about if,"
she cried imperiously.
Mr. Tiambull laughed. "I told him you
were wor h hilf a million of dollars, said
Sally's brow contracted and lrcr eyes
flashed. "You did! Why Mr. Trumbull
did you sty that ?"
"I m.!Ut that you are such a fine girl
that yoc are worth it; and really Miss Sally
I think It too low an estimate. I ought to
have said two millions."
Sally laughed. "Oh, that is founy !
And do you suppose that he believed it?"
' Ccrtain'y. And so he has been courting
you? Mr. Trumbull said shrewdly.
"Perhaps so; but are you sure he is the
; same man ?"
"I think he is; but a question will soon
set that at rest."
Sally started in her impulsive manner.
"Come and I will iutroduce you and then I
.-hall know the truth of this extraordinary
Mr. Trumbull would have remonstrated,
but she was half across the room before he
I could interfere. Murray started forward
with jdeasure as he saw her approaching
"Here is an old friend of mine, whothink
he has seen you before," she said. "Mr.
Trumbull, slr. Murray."
The gentlemen shook hands, and then Mr.
"I think we met on board a boat on Lake
Erie, last fall."
"Yes." replied Murray with a faint smile,
"I remember it perfectly."
A few words were exchanged, and then
Murray walked away.
'Are you going to marry him, Miss
Sally?" asked Mr. Trumbull.
"Is he rich "
"He is said to be."
"Then you suppose fortune will be a
matter of indifference to him ?"
"But what if his is as mythical aimine?"
"You must find that out"
"No, I don't care to know now," said
Saily. "Let us talk of something else'"
"Yes, I thought you were going to ask
after your old friends. Have you forgotten
al! about them in these gaities?"
"Oh, no!" and Sally put query after
query about her friends, until at last Mr.
Trumbull said : "But you do not ask after
Turn Middleton, aod yet you might, for he
cares more for you than all the rest put
"Oh. that's nonseose! But how is he?"
"He will tell you himself."
"Tom here?" exclaimed Sally, her face

Sally started up at once, and slr. Trum
bull looked after her with a smile. He had
been hoping for this match for a long time,
and nor as he went out to find Tom he
whispered to him:
"Speak to her to-night man. lam sure
she loves you.''
Tom scarcely knew whether he was on his
head or his heels as he made bis wav to the
private parlor. He never could remember
afterwards exactly what happened when he
reached it He only knew that Sally came
to meet him with a bright, blushing face,
and the next thing he was certain of she
was clasped in his arms.
At a tolerable early hour the Dext morn
ing a Bote was handed to Sally. It was from
Mr. slurray. renewing his offer and begging
for a speedy interview.

said to the servant, and Tom. who was with
her. weDtout without one particle of jealous

haughtily. "Stop a moment. Murray, I
should like to ask you a question.

He hesitated and stammered. At last he
said : "Tour friend Mr. Trumbull did men

assure you, dearest Sally, that it is of your

Sally checked him with an imperious
gesture. ''l have not a penny in the world!''
He stood still, looking at her with a pale,
"Yes, sir. I am entirely without fortune,
and whoever weds me must take a portion

"No need to express your regrets, sir, I
am engaged to be married, and I will bid
you a good morning."
Murray got out of the room as best he
could, and vani-hed that day from Wash
ington. His wealth turned out to be a mere
fabrication of his own, and he was heard of
no more in fashionable circles.
"After all wasn't it funny that I should
be courted for my fortune?" Sally said, as
-he related Mr. Murray's discomfiture to

replied enthusiastically, "that you "that

ASA I'.tCK EK.
The Gerrnantown Telegraph —an inde
j pendent paper—gives this history, political
: and otherwise, of the Democratic nominee
i for Governor:
For the high and responsible office of
j Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsyl
vania, the Democratic party has nominated
a man who h not a native of the State, nor
| distinguished for eminent ability of any kind
| in connection with public affairs. Asa Pack
er has been a member of the Legislature and
also cf Congress, but in both cases he was a
: silent member, without ability or influence,
! and the record of his public -ervices is limit
ied to votes in the affirmative or negative. If
i he ever drafted a bill of any importance we
have never read of it. If he ever offered a
substitute for any bill we cannot find the
record of it. If he ever offered amend
ments of any consequence to any pending
measure, his party friends have not yet
shown the act, and we doubt whether they
; can do so. If be ever expressed his views
I on any questions of moment io language
worthy of quotation, or to which his con
-tituents could refer with pleasure or pride,
it has yet to be shown. If he ever exercis
cised any potential influence with his party
in the Legislature or Congress the public is
io blissful ignorance of it.
How, then, does it happen that such a
man has obtained a nomination for Gover
nor of a State containing four million® of in
telligent and prosperous people, and untold
resources ? How does it happen that a'l the
bold, able, thoughtful leaders of the Demo
cratic partv, whose restless exertions, and
commanding ability have maintained thru
party strength under all that disa-trous di>
eouragements of the past ten years, have
been thrust aside to make room for this si
lent member? How does it happen that
Pennsylvania is asked to disregard the con
spieuous public services of her own native
born sons, and to elevate to the chief magis
tracy a man of no ability at all, from another
section of the Union? Before answering
these queries we desire to a.-k especial at
tention to the impudent assumption of in
tellectual superiority incessantly paraded
before the country by emigrant Yankees on
behalf of the New England States whence
they come. We are constantly told by them
that New England supplies the progressive
power and intelligence of the republic, and
no matter how much of that movement is
furnished by the Middle States we never get
any credit for it. Thus while Pennsylvania
emigrants outnumber those of all New Eng
land, ten to one, in Kansas, we are constant
ly told that the Kansas struggles were car
ried on by Yankees. In the same way these
emigrant Yankees claim the credit of all
that is progressive in the west, while the
fact is that the emigration from the Middle
States in the west overshadows a!! else.
We do not raise this issue against Asa
Packer for any personal dislike of New Eng
land men whom, as a general thing, we like,
but the Democratic party itself raised the
issue all over the South against every North
ern man. and in the electiou of iSo7 it rais
ed the same issue precisely in Pennsylvania.
We insist that if New Englanders are to be
elected to high offiees in Pennsylvania they
shall at least be men of ability. But here is
a man whose career as a legislator is one of
unvarying imbecility, and whose advance
ment rests entirely upon the fact of being
worth twenty millions of dollars. He was
presented on that basis as a candidate for
President of the United States, and the
Democratic National Convention fairly
laughed at the idea of such a nomination.
These men had some sense and some princi
ple. They had Statesmen and soldiers in
their ranks; and they spurned the idea of
nominating a money bag.
A great deal has been said about the lib
erality of Packer in giving a half a million
of dollars to endow a college. But Ezra
Cornell has done as much in New York and
nobody proposes to elect him Governor or
President for it. And what shall be said of
Packer when compared with Peabody?
There are citizens of Philadelphia who have
given away unostentatiously ten times the
amount that Packer makes such a flourish
on. And what shall be thought of Packer's
liberality in view of the fact that he fled to
Philadelphia from his residence in Mauch
ChuDk. to avoid paying the local tax assess
ed on him to defray soldiers' bounties ?
This tax he never yet paid, while the poorer
property holders of Mauch Chunk all had to
This is the New England emigrant we
are asked to make a Governor of. The truth
is, we have here simply a money getting and
money hoarding monopolist, a typical man
from among those who have amassed such
tremendous fortunes by running up the
price of coal so heavily. We have all of us
paid our shares of the cost of making up
these enormous fortunes. If we admire
this sort of "enterprise" and want others to
help themselves at our expense, all we have

Pennsylvania, and the force of the example
will soon produce a large crop of imitators.
If the extortionate price of coal is a desira
ble thing, then Asa Packer is just the man
for Governor. He represents fairly the in
fluences whereby the coal trade had been so
mismanaged. We invite our readers to ex
amine the subject dispassionately for them
selves, and we are quite sure they will come
to much the same conclusion that we have
DRET OF BRA™ WORKERS.— A New
York doctor has been writing up the "Diet
of Brain Workers." He combats the theory |
that they should live on nothing. Those
authors and thinkers who delight in
luxurious dinners will find the doctor's ;
labors very palatable. He is Dot content
with opposing theory to theory, but calls
upon all to witness the fact that the most !
arduous brain workers are the hearti-st
eaters. The an-wer to the inquiry "Why
is this?" is because they need it. And they ;
need it became: 1. Labor of the brain
causes greater waste of tissue than labor of
the muscles. Three hours of bard study
produce more important changes of tissue
than a whole day of muscular labor. 2.
Brain workers, as a class, are more active
in their work, and work more time than
mechanics or laborers. The thinking pow
ers, the tools of trade of brain workers are
always at hand, and seldom idle. 3. Brain
workers exercise, more or les3, all tbe other
organs of the body, as well as the brain.

but he had read and beard of the wonderful

TIIL "SPONSIBLE EDITOR."
Don Piatt edited a campaign paper in
we t-.-rrj N w York ,-ome twenty-nine years
ago. Here is one of the rcmioitences :
The talented editors were especially ob
jects of vituperation and assault, and had
rather a hard time of it. The office was
broken into and the limited assortment of
type knocked into pi. The infuriated mob,
instigated by that fiend, Saxton. as the pa
per asserted, seemed, however, to respect
that sacred relict of the great Franklin, for
'hat was not damaged. It may be that it
frightened them. The editors had their
eyes in a chronic state of mourning. But
they were game and kept up the war, until
i one day a long bodied, broad-shouldered.
J double fitted Democrat, named Jim Moore,
-talked into the editorial sanctum and made
| the novel proposition of being publi-hed as
rhe responsible editor.
You ain't up to these whig fellers, you
ain't. Just turn 'em over to me—say I'm

Our notice of this event reads to the effect
that our quiet town was fearfully startled

out with great violence, on Saturday last,
near the church. On repairing to the spot,
we discovered that the unhealthy bellowing
came from a stray long ears that had wan
dered into our town. The owner of this
disagreeable beast would do well to capture
and stable him.
The paper was scarcely distributed before
the eloquent blacksmith bounced into the
office, followed by a crowd of curious friends.
Where's the editor of this nigger baby's
dip? roared the stumper.
Dou't allow no profane language on these
premises, responded the ad interim editor,
turning over the exchanges, and scarcely
looking at the indignant intruder.
You be ! I want the editor, I say.
"Well, well, well," cried Jim with digni
ty. as if bis precious time was being intruded
upon by a fellow beneath his notice, I'm
the 'sponsible editor.
No you ain't, chorused the crowd, you're
only Jiui Moore.
Pon't try to fool me, foamed the orator,
"I want the feller that writ that," pointing
at the somewhat personal paragraph.

exclaimed Jim, getting up and it seemed as

are a liar. You're a liar anyhow 1— and in
