Men of 1'romlsc,
In ono of his lectures ou educational and
Intellectual progress, Mr. Jnmes T, Fields,
with much boldness makes tho nsscrtlon that
110 men of extraordinary promise) havo grad
uated from our colleges for tho past twenty
years, Tho truth of tho assertion may well
bo rnicHtioucd, It depends largely upon tho
standard of measurement that is used. The
height of inountulns is reckoned from tho
level of tho sea, nnd not from that of tho
plains from which they ne. Men aro count
cd great inpropoitiou as they tower above
their surroundings. Tho seeming scarcity of
great men is owing very largely to tho eleva
tion of tho ireneral lovel of tho masses. Of
course, thcro havo been men in all ages who
Imvo been absolutely, as well as relatively,
great, but they can almost bo counted upon
one's fingers. Nor is there so great an ail
vantage in having men of oxfrnordlnury
talents inn generation, than their absence if
they aro absent is to bo greatly regretted,
Tho clovatioii of tho masses Is far inoro de
sirable than tho elevation of it fuw indlvidu
nls fur abovo tho averugo level. TltU work
of raising tho general grado is making a
grade as heretofore iiucqualcu, nml to it
should bo turned nil tho energies 01 tno peo
ple, so far as educational ciTort can accom
plish It. Tho great men will como when
needed -they aro tho fruit of emergencies j
but tho creation of tho fctato whoso citizens
uliall bo purer, wiser, moro virtuous than
thdr ancestors, Is a work tforthy of tho best
labors of tho best brains und hearts In tho

IttPtily-livo or thirty miles west of Liunl's
Und tin i'trpiiie point of Cornwall, l.n;:
Intnl. The Inr-fesl iituong them is St Mary's
with a population of about -OJ0, whither
many of the survivors were taken ; next in
importance como 'lYmco, St. Martin's, St.
Agnes, (from which tho first life boat seems
to Imvo been tent,) llrycr, and Llttlo Sam
son, tho hut, however, Inhabited by less
than a score of people, It is said that thco
dots upon thu uceau wcrothc celebrated Cas
seritides or Tin Islands where the l'honici.ui
milliners traded centuries before Christ.
This, however, can w.irccly ho tho case, as
tlii-y are composed almost entirely of gran
ite, and the Phunlcuns, who never pciietnv
led far into England, probably enough lm
agiued that Cornwall itself was simply nib
other anil larger isliiuil, and therefore inclii
ded the lYnlii'ul.i County and the Scllllcs
all in one group, lie this as it may, the
chango from tho beautiful Devonshire, with
Its balmy climate and its wealth of flowers
to ruggeil Cornwall is very striking. Sinco
England was a nation, tho Cornish miners,
and their relatives, the fishers of theso
rockv Scillv islets, have preserved distinc
five characteristics, Stubborn, bravo and
vehement, In their wrath they Intensify the
insular peculiarities of their fellow country
men. Tho land of the Pens and tho Trc.s,
tho two old prefixes to tho patronymic which
in old Cornish families are far more highly
valued than any title of nobility, is intense
ly clannish. Xo Highland Scotchman, no
Cladditch fisherman even, ever held tho rest
of tho world in contempt more than that
which the genuine Cornishman or ScilH.m
feels for all whose chance it was not to be
born within their limits. Their physiea
strength and power of endurance are immense
and they scorn the slighter build and less
muscular limbs, of their neighbors in Devon
shire and the tourists who visit their iron
bound coasts. Hut rude and rugged as Li ml'
End and its otlMiooU, the Scilly islands, are,
they are tho scene of the noblest romance in
nil English story. Tennyson has woven in
to imperishable verso tho legendary tale of
Arthur and tho Knights of tho Hound Table
and it is hero that the last sccneof Arthur's
was enacted. Tho strait running between
the mainland and tho islands was once, and
is still, wo believe, called tho Litliow-son, or
the Lioness, and in olden timo was a ridge
of dry, salty land. Tho same geological con
vulsions which divided Great Hritain from
tho continent must havo separated Cornwall
aud tho Seiliies, and it was upon this ledge
or perhaps on one of the Scillies themselves
that King Arthur was brought by Sir lievc
dere to die. Tennyson, in tho "Morte d'Ar
thur," gives-us the very name of the Lion
ess. It was tho last struggle of tho knights,
or, ns tho poet writes :
"So nil day long tho nolso of battle rolled
Among tho mountains by tho winter sea,
Until King Arthur's table, man by man,
Had fallen In Monoss about their Lord."
It was then that Sir llevedere boro his dy
"To n chapel nigh the field
A broken chancel Itu a broken cross
That stood ou a dark strait of barren land ;
On one sldo lay tho ocean, and on ono
Lay a great water; nnd tho moon was full."
Sir llevedere threw the brand Excalibar,
and Arthur set out in his borge for his mys
tic homo "by tho island valley of Avilion,"
close to tho very spot where the three
hundred and fifty people but a day or two
ago lost thoir lives. Had time been but
granted them, and a Iievedcre been by to
hear their last request, it might havo been
told in tho last words Tennyson has put into
tho mouth of the king
"If thou shouldst never sco my face again,
Pray for my soul I Jlore things n'ro wrought by
Than this world dreams ot, Whcreforo let thy voice
HUo Ilko u fountain for mo night and day."
Tho fanner adds a little sand to his timo
thy seed. IIo injures no one's life; he only
cheats a dealer out of four or fivo dollars,
Tho State employs him at hard labor for ten
years. What shall bo douo with tho crea
tures that poison our sons? In 1S0C four
houses in New York city palmed oil' two
millions of gallons of theso deadly com
pounds. They buy tho meatiest whisky or
spoiled cider, and "drug" it into tho rarest
wines in a few hours. It not unfrcquently
happens that a country Keller drives in .1 few
barrels of bis spoiled slop, sells it to a man
ufacturer, docs his shopping, and in a few
hours drives back with a part of the same
stuff, "drugged" into wino or brandy for
which he paid an advaneo of four or five dol
lars. A Frenchman, pointing to a barrel,
said: "Tell mo what.kind rf wino or brandy
you want, and give mo thrco hours, and J
will draw it out of that barrel "
Tho moro costly tho liquor the moro cer
tain the fraud, The whole champnno dis
trict is only twenty thousand acres, and pro
duces only about 800,000 baskets perannum.
Of this Itussia consumes 100,000, Franco
102,000, Kngland 220,000, Germany Mb',000,
leaving for America and the rest of tho
world 112,000 ; yet Yankees coiisumo moro
than 1,000,000 baskets yearly. How dull it
is in Germany, Kngland, Franco and Ru-sia
to imagine that they got any champagne,
when Americans consume twenty-five, per
cent, more than is produced.
Only 150,000 barrels of wilio aro produced
on the Island of Mado;Ia. America buys
60,000 barrels, t the rest of tho world has
a full share.
Port wine is manufactured in Douro Val
ley, in Portugal. Tho valley is narrow suid
only sixty miles long. Yet all tho world
