His ear was detached from the train,

over the road half ait hour ahead of the

any demonstration on his arrival, and
it was a perfect success. The party pas.—

attention and crossing the Bay and ar
riving at the wharf took carriages to the
Palace Hotel, where they entered with

had arrived. On the arrival of the regu

in attendance with bands playing and
colors tlying, while Pom Pedro was al

McKee, of the St. Louis Globe-Deiuo

ago of being in the whisky ring, lias
been sentenced to pay a fine of f lO.UUO
and be imprisoned two tears in the
county jail. This is heavy punishment
for an eminently respectable and infiu
ential gentleman, a deacon in the church,
a prominent leader in politics, and pro
prietor of the principal Republican organ
west of the Mississippi. But there has
Iteen altogether too much robbery of the

Grant from a third-termer has come
down to be neutral —he is for nobody
now, since bimselfis out of the question.
How suddenly his notions changed, and
nothing else but a little investigation
did it. Had he been only a one-termer
he might have retired without a blasted
reputation or a disgraced administration
—but the evil practices under his second
term have finished him up and it would
be well for the country in the record of
the last four years of Grantism could be
wiped out.
The state legislature will adjourn on
5 inst. It will be noted for one good
thing—it has passed less bills than any
of its predecessors. Under the old con
stitution a volume of laws was ground
out each winter which were mostly of a
private nature and to legalize some
scMemc to ekin and plunder the public.
This evil has been greatly curbed by
the new constitution, and the good ef
fects are noticeable in the few laws
made during the present session. Be
yond the repeal of the notary fees act,
we believe there has been no local legis
lation for Centre county this winter. • j

This appointment was made by Gov.

That was a sound message of Grant's
vetoing the of the law reducing the
president's salary from SSO,(KM) down to
$25,000 the old figures of Washington,
Buchanan, and Lincoln. We printed
the veto message in the Reporter last
week, and we call it sound, because it
shows great veneration for the constitu
tion, which in this instance reminds usof
of a deathbed repentance, for we never
knew Grant before to build much upon
the constitution—perhaps it is only

ancient piece of parchment, and he evi

N\ Y. Tribune: According to the
statement by the Bowlers, published in
yesterday's Tribune, their uncle and
guardian, George li. Pendleton, did
nothing in collecting the war claim of
their railroad upon the Government,
which they did not fullv approve, and
was paid nothing beyond what they were
glad to offer and were fully convinced
that he had amply earned. We have no
sort of doubt that this is an exact state
ment of the ease. There has ncTcrbeen
the least reason to believe that Mr. Pen
dleton did anything in the matter which
either the stockholders of his road or
the family of the heirs for whom he was
guardian did not fully approve. The
onlv difficult point in the case is this.
As President of the road he was chiefly
his own constituency since he represent
ed, in his fiduciary capacity as guardian
for the heirs, three-fifths of the stock :
The heirs are nearly of age, and the
guardian might well be largely guided
by their wishes. But still, he was
technically bound to act on his own
judgement for their best interests.
There can he no doubt that they want
ed him to have the tnoney, but whether
he as their guardian, should haveaward
ed the money to himself as President of
their road, is a more difficult question.
The salient feature of the case, however,
is this. Mr. Pendleton never dreamed
that lie was doing an impioper thing.
The heirs never dreamed of if. The
road itself was always considered a
family concern. They arranged its af
fairs to suit themselves, and decided
| among themselves that if Pendleton,
[ whom they all wanted to help, could re
cover this claim, he should have half of
it. There was nothing in the case dif
ferent from arrangements which busi
ness men make even- day. The only
difficulty was, that while the arrange
ment was really made by the heirs, yet
fx*fore they actually became of age,
Pendleton himself, as their guardian,
could alone give it legal effect, and was
thus placed in the awkward iositiou of
deciding, as guardian, to pay the money
to himself as President. The people out
of whose pockets it came, however, are
perfectly contented with the payment,
and would make it over again to-mor
row if they could. Under these circum
stances, the complaints of outside people
for political effect are likely to have less
permanent weight.
From f/ie Hartford Timet.
Having occasion to go on board the
, Acklawaha boat to-day, I have noticed a
nale, elderly woman, with very white
hair, who kept herself aloof from the
excursionists, and by accident I learned
it was the wife of Henry Ward Beecher.
Bhe was going up the river twenty-six
miles to a settlement on the St. John's
called Beecher, in honor of her famous
husband. She can" up to I'alatka on
Saturday—possibly from the residence
of Mrs. Stowe, at Mandarin: though I
wouldn't like to vouch for this—for "the
Be cohere are peculiar."
This member of the family is said to
have her own peculiarities. She is an
old woman, now—probably not less
than 70—{forshe is considerably older
then her husband) —and her aspect is
that of a woman who suffers from an in
ward pain that reaches deeper than the
physical hotly. Some observers, seeing
lier sitting there alone on the steamer,
might say she was borne down by grief
and trouble—and surely she has had her
share; hut there was something in that
pale, determined face which spoke of
more than grief.
A bystander said. "She looks like
three w hole tragedies boiled down into
one act;" and this did better expft**s
that unhappy lace. A strange, secret,
inner history is hidden in its cold mar
ble. It is not a winning face—not the
countenance one would /expect to see in
the wife of Ilenry Ward lWctu-y. What
it does express 1 will leave to nthe/ By
mate out. Enough for me to know that
she carries, poor woman, a sight of trou
ble beyond tlm miseries of most of those
who d< serve punishment.
I She hid her face at times with lict
■ luind not from staring etirin-ity . for she
knew not that she was at that moment

The Chinese Question is being inves
tigated in Ban Francisco by a legislative
committee. The clergyman in charge
of the Chinese missions in that city re
cently (testified before this commit!* *•
that the* Chinese in America have m ar
ly all come from the province of Canton,
'/ho "Bix U< impanics" bear to the Chi
nese people the relatiou of arbitrators,
and by common custom they recognize
as conclusive all documents bearing the
seals of those companies. The compa
nies themselves do not imjsirt laborers,
but every ( hinese immigrant into Cali
fornia joins one of them. There is also
a "Washington Guild, - ' which is com
posed of men from all the companies.
The system of woman slavery, as it exists
in San Francisco, the witness described
its "the vilest and most brutal servitude
ever imposed upon human beings." JJe
also stated that when a member of one
elan kills one of another *lan, the crime
Is sometimes hushed and evidence <le:
t roved for a consideration.
There is another side to the Chinese
question. They arc docile people when
let alone—apt, industrious and useful,
laving mainly on rice and fish, it costs
them very little for necessary expenses
and they can therefore work for very
low wages. When there were but few
of them in California, the Ban Francis*-o
people were eager to have a great many
more; now, when they are very numer
ous, the turbulent portions of the Frisco 1
population are against having any. The
truth is the Chinese have concentrated
too much. If they were more evenly
distributed throughout the western
country they would be considered quite
as desirable labor auxiliaries at this time
as they w ere ten years ago. Their con
centration carries their low wages into
conflict with all other labor, and arrays
all other labor against them. A number
of them have bought twenty thousand
acres of land and are going to farming.
That is a good move in the right direc

cosnpaniod by the bridesmaid and grot-ins

.the acred edifice anil escorted to the ab
tar by the sexton, vrlui, however, got the
pnrtie* rather mixed up, stationing tin
j bridesmaid next to the bridegroom, and
the bride and groomsman in correspond
ing wrong places The clergyman, not
noticing the mistake, went on with the
| ceii :i,oiiy. and began marrying the brides
maid to the bridegroom when the bride
served an "injunct: r. * on him by cx
i 'aiming that she w as the marrying parly.
The mistake being remedied, the clergy
man made another aitcmj>i, nnd tho
: fortuanco went smoothly along until it
cam* for the bridegroom to pr. dure the
ring, which was essential to the comply
t nof the ceremony. Hut when that gen
tleman felt in his vest pocket, it wasn't
there ; in the other, not there; in the
i trousers pocket, not there; and then he
fait to the bottom of tbo remaining pock
<t, an i Ltially exclaimed ; "Well, sure,
j there is a hole sn uiy pocket, and the ring
slipped down into my boot And theon-
Jy way to Cni*h the ceremony was for the

uku i-ut tho ring, pull on his boot, and
put the ring where it ought to bare,
and walk out with his bride, all of which

apprehension, f'ti the nth* r, that it will
not he found This disorders that calm
temperament so needful to clear
lion and salutatory conclusion.
2. The peculiar natural character of
Some are cheerful, others arc melan
. holy ; < tne are sanguine, others are well
informed, llul the evidences of true
Christ.unity are always the same Reli
gion is the same in all, yet so many differ
ent peis- ns looking at them would see
them in different lights, Peter and John
were both good christians, yet thoy were
very different men. And much more may
'ordinary christians l>e < xpected to differ.
8 The similarity between natural and
ievangelical views and affections.
Lovo and hatred, joy and sorrow, confi
drnee and baue, etc.. mist and operate
both as natural and evangelical affection*,
and it is difficult for Christians to tell
thetn apart.
4. The transient nature of all our eino
[ tions.
Every exorcise of our affections h*s only
a momentary exigence. It rises ;it is in
dulgod ; it it gone.
6. Au imperfect slate of Religion in the
Angels know thoy aro holy,—Devils,
they are not. If Christians were perfect |
ly holy they would also know it, but they!
are not. David, Solomon, Fetor, etc .
tinned. Uishon Ueveridgo says : I sin : 1
repent. 1 sin in my repentance: I prayj
| for forgiveness and sin in my prayers; 1]
resolve against future sin and sin in form-!
ing my resolutions, *0 thai luy whole life!
is a continued course of sin Hut a great-1
rr than the Bishop has said, Rom., 7:U*-24 J
The good that 1 would, 1 do not ; but tbi
eyil which 1 would not, that I do, etc.
6. Backsliding.
Many wethougbt belter than ourselves,
have so shamefully backslidden that we,
are compelled to doubt of Iheit religion
and often question the reality of our own
And were it not for the Bible we wouldi
all turn infidels—l mean if we had no!
mere reliable criteria than the conduct oi
many christians, i shall now close this
article by quoting Dr Scott again. He;
says: The lull assurance of hope, in lhe ;
highest meaning of the word*, is attained ,
hy compnritivcly few, and is seldom if ev-;
er preserved without some degree of dim-j
inulion or variation, through the remain
der of life ; hut a prevailing assurance ol (
acceptance, and of final salvation, is the ;
privilege of all diligent and consistent 1
Christians, and is, in them, seldom great
ly interrupted, except by misapprehension
