SMILE AND BE CONTENTED
The world grows old and men grow cold
To each while seeking treasure,
And what with want and cure and toil,
We scarce have time for pleasure.
But never mind—that is a loss,
Not much to be lamented,
Life rolls on gaily if we will,
But mile and be contented.
If we aro poor, and would be rich,
It will not be by pining,
No! no! steady hearts and hbpefill minds,
Are life's bright silver linings.
There's no'er a man who dared to hope,
Hath of his choice repented;
The happiest souls on' earth are those,
Who smile and are contented.
When grief doth come and rack the heart,
And fortune bids us sorrow,
From hope we may a blessing reap,
And consolation borrow.
If thorns arise when roses bloom,
It esnnot be prevented ;
So make the best of life you can,
Anil smile and be contented.

HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1866,
SELLING A GRINDSTONE,
Among Fred's numerous friends was
Judge Newton, who resided in Ma
honing county, this State. Fred al.
ways made the Judge's home his home
when he traveled that part of the coup•
try. The Judge was a fine, jovial old
fellow; fond of a joke and was always
trying to get a joke upon Fred, when
ho stayed with him.
One day, some timo in the year 1839
Fred was passing through, and put up
with him over night. In the morning
_determined to drive a trade
with him of some kind, offering in his
usual way to take anything for pay
"I'll tell you what I'll do," said the
Judge, laughing, "I've got a first-rate
grindstone out in the yard, if you'll
take that I'll trade it out." "Very
well," said Fred, "I'll take it, just
as good pay 118 I want."
They went out to the wagon, and
the Judge turned out his grindstone,
which Fred loaded in his wagon and
start , ed, had not gong far before
he saw a customer and stopped his
"Good morning, Squire—want any
thing in my line this morning."
"Well I don't know, Fred," replied
ho in a bantering tone, "got any grind
"Yes, sir; got a first rate one; just
come out and look at it."
• Now it happened the man really did
not want a grindstone; he was ac
quainted with Fred and spoke in tho
manner he did because ho had no idea
Fred had ono.
"I like the looks of that stone," said
he, after examining it, "and as I want
one very much, and you take anything
for payment, I'll give you six cents a
pound for it (four cents was the regu
lar price) provided you will take such
property as I turn out to you for'pay
"Certainly," said Fred, always
"Very well. How much does the
grindstone weigh ?"
'Just forty-cight pounds," said Fred,
brit, proceeded to unload it.
"Now come with me, Fred," said the
old Squire, grinning, when this was
finished, "and get your pay."
Fred followed him to the stable.
"There," said ho, pointiog to a bull
calf, just six weeks old, which was
standing in the stable, "there's a first
rate calf, worth about three dollars,
which I supposo will pay you for the
"Very good, just as good pay as I
want," said Fred, as ho unfastened his
calf and led him to his wagon. "But
stop a minute," said he, "I shall he
back this way in about three weeks,
and if you will keep him till then I
will pay you what is right for it."
"Oh, yes, I'll keep him for you,"
said the Squire, laughing, as Fred
drove off, with the idea of having beat
He supposed that Fred would nev

had nothing better than to giro up his
He then traveled, and as it was now
near night, Fred concluded to put up
with the Judge.
As he alighted at the gate he was
met by a hearty shako of tho hand,
and "how are you, Fred ? What did
you do with your old grindstone ?"
"1 sold it a day or two ago, at a
good profit, I can tell you; I received
six cents a pound for it:
"Ah !" said the Judge, in surprise;
"but what have you got, under there?"

"0," said Fred, indifferently, "that's

our way; the Colonel made me prom

consider him nothing but a common
calf,not worth more than three dollars.
It might be as well to mention that
this was about the time of the great
excitement about imported stock, and
that Colonel D. of whom Fred spoke,
was a man known of ,Tudge Newton
to be a heavy importer of foreign stock
particularly of the Durham.
Jungo Newton had often endeavored
to procure some of the stock, but as it
was then very scarce and bore a high
price, he examined it a little more
closely to purchase it.
"It's ono of the regular Durhams,
sure," said lie musing, "and a fine one
at that; if you will part with him, I'll
give you twenty-five dollars for him."
"Couldn't part with him for no such
money. Colonel Davis is to give me
seventy-five as soon as I get home."
c‘we!l you wont take him clear homo
with you, and if you'll let me have
him, I'll give you fifty dollars."
"No, can't do it; I've disappointed
the Colonel two or three times already
and he wouldn't like it at all if I should
disappoint him in this way again."
"But, said the Judge, now becoming
anxious, "you can tell him you have
not, been over the mountains."
"I don't know about it, Judge," said
Fred, after a pause. "As you say it's
some ways home, and will cost some
thing to get him there ; and if you will
give me seventy-five dollars I don't
know but you may take him."
The Judge was delighted with hie
purchase and paid the money on the

calf was passing, when Judge Newton
called him to toll him that ho had at

desire to see it, and they proceeded to

"Who did you got it of ?"

The Squire burst out into, a loud
"Why Judge," said he as soon as ho
could speak, "I sold him that calf a

The Judge was perfectly astonished.
He thought of it a moment and then
"Yes—l sold him that grindstone.—

told me that calf was not worth more
than three dollars ! Don't say any
thing about this, and you may have

OPINIONS OF THE ,PRESS.
[Under this head we give opinions of lead
ing journals, that our readers may see more
than one side of a question.]
[From filo Now York Ttmes.]
The Democratic Party and the Elec
We trust the Democratic party is
satisfied with the success of its "little
game" in, the late elections. If it is,
everybody else can well afford to be
content. The extreme radicals, as us•
nal, owe their power to the selfish and
unscrupulous partizanship of the Dent
ocratS; and the Union men can console
themselves for whatever good results
they have failed to secure, by the fact
that the ascendancy of the Democratic
party has at all events been averted.
It was that ascendancy which the
Democrats sought, and which the poo
ple feared more than anything else.
The Democratic leaders in Ol the
States, and most notably in Pennsyl
vania and NeW York—made tho res
toration of their party to power the
main aim of all their efforts.
Thor held everything everywhere
subordinate to this ono object. They
supported President Johnson, partly
perhaps because they agreed with him,
but mainly to control the patronage
and the power of his command for the
attainment at this one end. They en•
dorsed the Philadelphia Convention—
partly because its positions and prin
ciples defied their assaults—but main
ly because they hoped to make it the
stepping stone to party control in
State and national affairs. They used
both the Presidi3nt and the Convention,
remorselessly and recklessly, for their
own advantage, and they have been
utterly and thoroughly overwhelmed
The reason of this result is palpable.
The people distrust the patriotism and
loyalty of the Democratic party, and
will not trust the restoration of the
Union and the reformation of oui• civil
and political institutions to as hands.
They see now more clearly than they
could see before the war, that the in
herent spirit and temper of that party
wore always at war with the best in
terests of the nation. The party-, as
such, always allied itself with the
worst elements and most perilous influ•
entes of the national life. It was the
ally of slavery-lot simply tolerant of
its existence, but the active defender
of its worst enormities and the open
advocate of its ambition. ' Out of its
devotiOn to slavery and its craving for
the power which slavery carried with
it, it, led the South into the Rebellion,
and lacked nothing but the courage to
follow it thither. Throughout the
war, its sympathies, as a party, were
with the Rebellion.
It rejoiced in its success—it magni
fied its merits and power, iL mourned
its defeats, it predicted its triumph—
it crippled and hampered the Govern- .
meat it its struggle against it, it threw
out of tho party as false and treacher
ous those-men who sought to give vig
or and success to the nation's arms,
and it evinced in every way and by
every means which can indicate the
spirit and purpose of party action, the
most determined and ingrained sym
pathy with the Rebel movement. Such
action in such a crisis makes an abid
ing impression on the public mind.
Neither in tile case of individuals nor
of a party iv it soon forgotten. The
people long for peace, for the restork
tion of the Union, for the resumption
of national prosperity and power; but
they want all this on the basis of the
Union principles vindicated and estab
lished by the war.
Whatever differences of opinion
have existed in the Union party should
have been settled within that party
and by its members, President John
son always declared that he so intend.

through the war from falling into the
hands of extreme men; and that ho had
no thought or purpOse of throwing the
power of the Government iuto the
hands of the party which had opposed
the war, and which was now ready to
sacrifice its results to securing its own
ascendancy. lithe President had ad
hered to this purpose he could very
easily have secured the result at which
ho aimed. But he allowed the Demo
crats to overrule or overbear bins. In
stead of aiding and strengthening the
national sentiment in the Union ranks,
and thus checking and thwarting the
Disunion element which sought to con
trol it, he invoked the Democratic
party to the rescue. lie recognized
the nominations of that party every
where as those for which ho sought
support—as those which represented
his policy and his Administratiou—as
those whose success was demanded by
the principles he deemed essential to
the public good.
And even after the Philadelphia
Convention had laid down a platform
thoroughly national in its principles,
and upon the Which the Union could
be restored in strict harmony with the
results of the war and the principles on
which the war has been carried to its
triumphant close, he still permitted the
Dimmer:ale party to seize upon it for
its own advantage—to climb into pow
er by its aid, to use it for the promoN
Lien of its. own ends, and the re-estab
lishinent in the national councils of its
own inlpremany. The Democrats in
the Albany Convention cared nothing
for the Philadelphia Con von tion—no
i for Pre.iident Johnson, nothing for
the restoration of Lhe Union—nothing
for the patriotic men who were strug
gling for it, except as it could use them

cept as it could be made to aid in its
attainment. Their action was friendly
and vigorously partisan throughout.
They hold their party organization,
laid down their party platform, put a
party ticket in the field, and aimed
openly and avowedly at a party vic
tory. And they made the President
believe that the success of his princi

triumph and the offices

The result is now visible, and is pre
cisely what cairn and dispassionate ob
servers know it would be. The direct
effect of this policy was to unite the
Union party—to consolidate all its
strength agni rist the DeMocratic party;
whose success was to be the death
knell of its influence on national af
fairs. No :man outside the ranks of
tho Democratic organization had the
slightest interest, personal or political,
in its success. Indeed everything
which Union men had deemed essen
tial to the public goOd was directly
threatened with utter overthrow by
the renewed ascendancy of the Demo
cratic party. The people would not
tolerate such a result. They would
not entrust the restoration of the
Union to the party which had sympa
thized with those who sought its over
throw. Whatever their faults, those
who had saved it were the most to be
trusted in its redemption. And so
they have continued the control of the
nation's affairs in the hands of the
Union Party. How that control is to
be exercised—whether under the guid
ance of calm and patriotic counsels, or
by passion, and the ambition of reck
less and unscrupulous men, it is fur the
future to reveal.
Ono result has been put beyond fur
ther controversy by these, elections—
the Democratic party will not be speed
ily restored to power in national af
fairs, It will not be allowed to control
the destiny or to shape the policy of
the country. The more it strives to
seize the reins of authority, the more
profound will be the popular distrust
of its temper, and the more vigorously
will its efforts be resisted.

The Late Elections--The President,
Congress, and the Political Parties
of the Day,
The emphasis with which the pow
erful people of the mighty North have
endorsed the Constitutional amend
ment now before the States, will be
understood by a glance at the Repub
lican majorities, in round numbers,
rolled up in the late September, Octo
ber, and November elections, viz

Grand ziggreotto majority
There is something positively arna
zing in these unparalleled and: unbro
ken majorities, and in this grand ag
gregate of three hundred and sixty
two thouatind. Wo dare say,.consid
ering the ravages of 'the war in the
South, that this aggregate Northern
majority exceeds tbo whole popular
vote which could now be east, under
their existing election laws, by the
whole ten Southern States excluded
from Congress. Hero, too, we 'have
the evidence, conclusive and overwhel
ming, to the effect that this Constitu
tional amendment to those ton States
is the ultimatim of the North, and that
to the and of President Johnson's term
of office there is no prospect of any
thing more favorable from Congress.—
The issue has been fairly tried between
the President and Congress,. and the
verdict settled to the 4th of Mareh,
The President, therefore, can do no
thing and has nothing _to hope for in
continuing to advocate his restoration
policy against the plan of Congress.
As a patriotic man and as a statesman
of experience and sagacity, we expect
him to yield the road to the amend
meat and to let it take its course.—
The recommendation to Congress of a
bill or resolution binding the two hou
ses to the admission of each of the ex
cluded States on its ratification of the
amendment, would probably not be
amiss, although we regard the prece
dent of Tennessee as substantially
meeting this proposition. In. any
event, it now remains for the excluded
States, each for itself, to determine ei
ther for the amendment and a restora
tion to Congress and our national elec
tions, or against the amendment, with
the exclusion from the next Presiden
cy and from Congress for an indefinite
time to come. This is the simple al-
ternative now before the South.
Next, in this table of Republican
maiorities,we have the final demolition
of the Northern rump of the old explo
ded National Democratic party. This
party, but fbr its recent alliance with
the Administration, and but fbr the
moral and Material aid given it by the
Administration, would have been too
weak to have made a straggle in those
late elections. In getting under the
wing of President Johnson it was
warmed, yea, galvanized, into a show
of vigorous vitality; but with his fail
gra to keep it on its legs, it must go
into dissolution. Stimulated and ral
lied for the moment by his powerful
tonics and restoratives to a wonderful
degree, the inevitable . reaction will,be
speedy and fatal: The rump of the
old Democratic party, in fact, hits gOnb
the way of the old Whig party and the
ald i'Lld9ral party, and its remains
must be turned over to some new par
ty organimatiun—not upon the dead
issues of the past, but upon the tivin
issues of this now epoch in our

trome radical faction must come to a
settlement. From all the lights and
indications before us, this settlement
will be thll casting out of the radical
fanatics and the consolidation of the
great party of the future in the union
of all the sound conservative materials
of the .country, North and South, Re,

of demagogues, reformers and fanatics.
We put Mr, Brooks (who has had bet
ter luck than !'little Jack Rogers") in
this category, because of his services
to Stevens at the last session of Con
gress, and because we suppose he will
follow the same tactics hereafter.
The into Democratic party is effect
ually used up, and its elements must
be.rocast in a •new form and with a
now name; for the prestige of the old
name has been changed by its war re
cord into public contempt. The Re

party of the coming Presidential con:.
test, remain still to be organized.—
