esteemed in her section of the state. The
marriage took place in Hartsville, on tho

Trade dollars continue to circulate here
at 85 cents, though everyone who can do
so, Is holding them back. In Philadel
phia most of the leading merchants arc
taking them at par for goods. Wo notice
by our exchanges that the business men of
many other places arc doing thu same
thing. It is likely that they will again
pass for a full dollar, but the tight ngalnst
them all over the country will show Con
gress the necessity of taking some action
ht its next session to retire them, or pass a
law making them legal tender. They are
worth more than the Eland dollar intrin
sically, and thero is no reason why they
should not be made lawful money.
W. H. Poust, agent at tho 1). L. & W.
depot here, was unceremoniously discharged
on Tuesday morning. Tho only cause ho
can assign is that he refused to stand tho

take them. They wero returned to him by
the company, and he expressed them back,
at the same time writing a letter fully ex
plaining the circumstances, llo heard
nothing more of thu matter until Tuesday
morning when he was notified to quit, Mr.
Poust has been an obliging and ellleeut
ngent, and thu business men of the town
will bu sorry to have him leave. Ho lias
been In the service of the I). I.. ii W, Co.

charging him for so trivial a matter is se
verely criticised by the public.
Superintendent McCalister of Phlladel

inveighed against the cramming processes
practiced In our primary schools, declaring
that we teacli too much, and teach It too
poorly. In his view, simplification is tho
great need of tho public schools. He be
lieved that tho time had come for teachers,
in view of tho responsibility resting upon
them, to demand of the managers of our
public schools that a change bo madu In

with which ho was endorsed by the other

Tho Enlscoiml church controversy
which has grown out of tho High church
tendencies of Arthur Ritchie, pastor of tho
Church of Ascension, Chicago, and which
has already served to draw out a letter of
protest from tho bishop of that dloceac,
had another sensational feature added to
it Sunday. Hector Richie, at thu morning
service, announced that at thu conclusion
of the service a requiem mass would bo
said for tho soul of Daniel Fountain, who
was drowned in Lake Michigan in tho hit
tcr Dart of -May. Tho announcement of n
requiem muss was apparently such n pro
nounced step towards llomiintsm as to
cause even tho parlshoners of tho Church
of tho Ascension to rebel who had hitherto
stood hv thu pastor, and one-half of tho
congregation left church. In tho mean
time, ut tho request of tho widow of Daniel
Fountain, tho celebration of thu mass has
been postponed for a fow days. It Is be
lieved now that thu bishop will bu com
pulled to order thu trial of tho pastor for

Ui.syssks, Hutler do., Neb. June 30th '83.
Messrs. Editors :
Since I last wrote to you I have witness
ed a great mauy changes iu tills country.
Until thu last fow days it lias been very
wet and cold caused by the manv hull
storms that have been in this and adjoining
counties. On last Sabbath morning we had
at this place one of the heaviest rain storms
I ever witnessed in this or any other conn
try. The shower came up from the north
west, it began to thunder and lighten about
24)0 A. M., at 3 o'clock it poured down in
torrents, and peal after peal came until it
shook the earth. I was at Mr. J. C. Cole
man's. Wu thought tho house would blow
over sure. It continued raining until 7-30
at which timo I looked out of Coleman's
stairs window south and as far as eye
could see tho earth was completely sub
merged with water. The oldest inhabitants
told me they never saw such a rain storm
since they lived hero. I was rcallv sur-
prised on Monday morning as I was going
to the town of Ulysses, a distance of six
miles, all along the road to see the farmers
plowing corn, tho ground completely dry
with the exception of some low places
where the water was yet standing. The
ground in tills country is very porous and
takes In the water very soon. Worklnc in
this ground does not injure it. The chunks
of earth will in a few days appear to slack
and run together llko ashes. Tho wheat,
barley and oats aro now about out in head.
Such crops I never saw before, the corn
looks Hue, and more than an nvorago
crop is now anticipated. I was just ruad
ing an abstract of assessment in Hutler
county tor 1833, It contains among other
things tho following :
In the county theru aru 0,020 horses, 15,509
hogs, 15,478 cattle, 3,008 sheep, improved
lands 134,728 acres, unimproved lands
205,001 acres, total number of acres 339,
789, number of acres in wheat 21,708, com
50,417, oats 8.324, barley 1,073, (lax 2,82(1,
rye 1,245, meadow 521, number of fruit
trees 22,891, acres of forest trees 1,873.
A I'.VIIMOT IIKIT.KSKNI'ATIVE INVESI'IOATKS
l'IIAl:lr..S MADE AIIAIKSr IT,
Danvii.i.k, July 11. A series of articles
has recently been published in thu William
sport Jlrenlfutt Tutite exposing alleged
abuses in thu asylum for thu insane at this
place. A representative of tho Patriot visi
ted the institution a day or so ago and was
shown through the different wards and af
ter making tho closest scrutiny failed to
discover anything that would thow either
a laxity or unduu severity in tho manage
ment of the poor inmates confined therein,
Tho author of boiiiu ot thu articles in ques
tion was a former employe of tho institu
tion, und was dismissed for ill-treatment of
n patient, and now excuses ids conduct by
asserting that Instances of tho most shock-
cruelty and Inhuman treatment nru of com.
niou occurrence. As Is usual in such cases
great injustice has been done. Dr. Shultz,
the superintendent, Is a thorough humani
tarian, and has thu entire confidence of tht
community in which ho mldcs. No onu
has been in thu least disturbed by the sen
sational articles appearing in print, and
copied by several papers throughout thu
state. Thoso having friends and relatives
within the building undergoing treatment
need give themselves no uneasiness by
reading accounts of alleged Inhuman treat
ment. That slight abuses exist, or havo
existed may 'ha quite true, but how aro
they to bo entirely prevented ? The disci
puno is very strict, and attendants nre
dismissed as soon us it Is known that they
are unnecessarily harsh In their treatment.
Hut when one of thesu poor crazed cren
turcs rushes upon nn attendant with the
superhuman strength which frenzy gives,
thero Is but one way to meet thu attack
force must conquer. Tho Institution cm
ploys the best help that can bo procured,
consistent with thu amount appropriated
by tho statu for this purpose. Thu duties
are arduous and often unpleasant,
ami uiiiy persons ot strong nerves
and wills aro able to fill tho position.
It is not to bo wondered at Hint these some
times fall in gentleness. As for "Iron clad
cells" there Is not one In tho building. And
as for "patients being poisoned" an exnini
nation but proves that tho Informer wns
perverting tacts, and your representative
questions whether such nn expose (?) us
that published In tho llrealutl 'lUle docs
anything better than place dllllculticJ In
tho way of those who nro honestly trying
to benefit thoso most unfortunate of human
.creatures -the Insane.
