    ■what appears to be a mosaic of a
house standing by a palm tree. The
inscription is "Carthage, David Por
ter Heap, 1855." Japan and China
are both represented by queer sage
green blocks covered with untrans
lated characters. There is another
from China presented by "the citi
zens of the United States of America
residing in Foo-Chow-Foo, China.
Feb. 22, ISST."
Next to this is a block of strange
brown marble with gilt devices and
letters saying "Das Befreundate lire
men, Washington dem glossen guten
und grechten."' There is an exquisite
piece of marble with a Grecian in
scription, to which my guide kindly
furnished the translation: "To Geo.
Washington, the General, the ruler,
the patriot of the men and illustrious
liberty, the land of Solon, Themisto
cles and Pericles, the mother of an
cient liberty, sends this ancient stone
as a testimony of honor and admira
tion. From the Parthenon." The
American Medical Association is
represented by a slab with a relievo,
which to my meagre classical knowl
edge was unintelligible; the inscrip
tion is: "Vincent Amor I'atrife."
One stone bears the inscription: A
tribute of respect from the ladies and
gentlemen of the dramatic profession
of America, 1853. And another that
impressed me very much as a sincere
and unaffected offering was inscribed:
To Washington, an humble tribute
from two disciples of Daguerre.
There is a block of lava brought from
Vesuvius by William Terrell, of
Georgia- On a tablet of brownish
marble is written in raised gilt let
ters, To the memory of Washington.
The Free Swiss Confederation, 1852.
Near the door is a small slab from
the Temple of Esculapius, Island of
I'aros: Presented by the officers of
the United States steamer Sarana-'-,
August 13, 1353. And further along
we read on a white marble block,
Presented by the Governor and Com
mune of the Islands of Paros and
Naxos, Grecian Archipelago, Au
gust 13, 1853. A white marble slab
with blue shield, inscribed in golden
Turkish characters, is presented by
the r-ultan of Turkey, to increase the
friendship between the United States
and his own country. Abdul Majid
Kahn desires to inscribe his name on
the monument to Washington. The
last and most valuable relic is an
Egyptian head wrought in dark stone.
It is fastened to a white marble tab
let, on which we read: This head
was carved between two and three
thousand years ago, by the Egyp
tians for the temple in honor of Au
gustus on the banks of the Nile.
Brought from there by J. A. Leh
man and presented to the Washing
ton Monument, 1850.
A little box for contributions
stands in the ante-room, but it has a
lean, hungry look. The entire amount
subscribed since 1783 to the present
day is not over § 3,000,000, if that
much. A Senator (Senator Corbett,
I think) subscribed his back pay.
But the generosity of this was ques
tionable, lbr if he thought himself
unentitled to it, it was grim wrong
to offer to Washington the money
taken from the very people in whose
service Washington earned his right
to a monument. Besides it only
amounted to $ 3U.
So the monument stands, the bro
ken fulfillment of one of the most
magnificent promises ever made.
And the sermon in tiiose stones
might perhaps resolve itself into an
old maxim : The ingratitude of Re
publics is proverbial.

COUDERSPORT, PA.. June 13, 1873
A Burning Shamo.
Again we hear news of a dastardly
outrage committed, it is said, by some
Oregon volunteers in killing unarmed
prisoners who had surrendered. This
savage and cowardly act, if committed
by the Modocs or any other savage
people would have raised an outcrv
over the whole country, but white
people, calling themselves civilized
and enlightened, some of whom may
have had christian mothers or
friends, some may have gone to
church, possibly to Sabbath school,
or read or even had a Bible, these
have shown themselves the equals in
heartless, inhuman butchery of any
savage, heathen people under the
sun. The}- are like those who this
spring, in Louisiana, burnedout and
then shot down and lieat to death
those who politically thought differ
ently from them ; add both horrors
go to show that in dastardly mean-
UCSj and blood-thirsty cowardice no
body can out do the savage Anglo-
A merioan.
This treachery to the Government
which accepted their proffered aid to
capture the Modocs is evidently part
of the scheme of the desperadoes of
the West, to prevent any ending of
Indian wars, to frustrate every at
tempt of the Government to keep
faith with the Indians, to make the
difficulties with all Indian tribes im
possible to settle.
If obliged to live in any frontier
land we should fear and dread the
white savages far more than the rod
: ones, even with such deeds as this to
rouse all the evil that is in them.
LISTENING to bird sounds, wind
whispers and rustling leaves, one's
attention is suddenly called by an
other scene. On the air like the
echoes, far off, yet close by, one can
not think where it is, we become con
scious of an odor, sweet and pervad
ing, that is at once delicious and in
spiring. It may be the "Perfume
like a thousand Junes" but it is con
densed into this June.
We search and there are many
fragrant plants, many sweet flowers
and the dewy evening air seems to
mingle their odors in the most deli
cate and harmonious proportion.
Wonderful are the capacities of en
joyment bestowed on us. Wonder
ful and mysterious the separate
senses,so different,so entirely discon
nected, and each opening into a
world of experience and observation
which to any or all of the others
would be utterly closed and incom
prehensible. It seems impossible to
imagine another sense just as it
would have been to imagine any of
these and their uses if they had been
hitherto unknown.
The evening air laden with sweet
ness. the fresh, dewy morning bright
and joyous after the rest of the night,
hold delight in their balmy breath,
but noisome stenches come to us
through the same avenue from the
outer to the inner world. The knowl
edge of good and evil extends even
here and warns us of dangers to be
avoided, of evils to be removed or
overcome, ot disease and death and
decay. We need not only to '"keep
our hearts pure," but our senses as
well, each in its perfection for the
enjoyment of present good and the
subduing or avoidance of danger or
calamity that we know of only thro'
them.
Pensions.
'•Republics are ungrateful," it is
said. Perhaps monarchies are no
less so, but they do not concern us.
But when we think of the noble en
thusiasm with which our people
rushed to the rescue of the life of the
nation only a few years ago; of the
eager, warm sjmpath) with which
we who could not go promised care
and support to the families and inter
ests they left unprotected; and how
ever)- body, from the remotest borders
to the government at Washington,
repeated and endorsed these prom
ises, we are ready to hide our heads
with shame to see how soon they
were forgotten or neglected.
There was no talk then about
whether a man "could make more by
attending to his private business;"
no telling that "a man could not be
expected to serve the public unless
reasonably paid; "no saying by them,
although it was far more true of sol
diers than of legislators, that the
nation was "not niggardly and would
not begrudge a proper remuneration"
to its servants. No! there was no
need: there was manliness and
patriotism and heroic devotion in
thousands, millions of hearts where
we would not have looked for them,
and so the country was saved and we
pay to the maimed, the helpless, the
widows and the old mothers a paltry
pittance; a tenth or a fiftieth or a
hundredth part of what our legislators
or judges or congressmen value their
services at.
Our brave soldiers suffered want
and privation, and to our shame and
sorrow, their families and many of
them who survive are still pinched
with poverty and difficulty; but not
one, so far as we know, regrets the
sacrifice or begrudges its great cost.
Is not this because there is a sus
taining power in a great purpose, a
wortlyy devotion ?
1 hey take their pittance and out
of it pay their share of the taxes that
support the government and they do
not complain. But not the less
should we blush to offer it to them.
It should be, doubtless we all feel
it so. the least we should do to place
all our soldiers and their families in
ease and comfort, or furnish them
with such a pension as might with
good management make them so and
so secured that it could not be squan
dered by those who are careless or
idle. The bare necessaries of lilt
are not enough for our brave defend
ers while anybody in the land enjoys
its luxuries, certainly not while any
public servant enjoys them. A wound
ed soldier has as much need of
home and comforts, of wife and
children, of the sweet joys and cares
of domestic* life as others have, and
all the more for the years of pain and
! suffering he has passed.
THE Times says:
At the Library Association Soci
able not only Ice Cream, but Straw
berries will be furnished and the
Oiean Brass Band will furnish good
music, for which they are noted.
Everybody should attend the .ee
Cream and Strawberry Festival for
the benefit of the Public Library, at
the Town Hall m-xt Wednesday even
ing. The proceeds will be immedi
ately used for the purchase of new
books. The affair should, of right,
net the association two or three hun
dred dollars. Let no one stay away.
It is very interesting to hear of
some Library Association getting up
a celebration or festival.
THOUGH our own school closed so
quietly and our Literary Society
seems to be, like one of baby Mid
get's " husbands," " very dead''—we
get bright, cheery announcements of
literary life and doings from else
where, showing that school festivals
and windings-up are still used and
made very interesting. Here comes
a card with a monogram in such
dainty sty le that it seems as though
some of our friends were just mar
ried; but instead of that it bears the
"Compliments of the Amaranthine
Literary Society," of Wilmington.
Delaware, for June 9th, at S o'clock.
Very sorry we cannot attend.
QUARTERLY Meeting was held in
the M. K. Church on Saturday and

much that was valuable and sugges- i

IN this lovely June time the woods
offer us a means of rest and delight
greater than at any other season,
and we cannot imagine a greater
treat than a day spent in them. We
have heard thus far of no picnics, no
excursions; no time, hardly, since
tlie warm weather came, for the cold
held on so long we were not ready
for the summer.
But we should drop everything
and go. Singly, with a microscope
and a trowel in a basket, if we are
covetous, or with something else in
the basket if we like—or two or
three together—or a large company,
perhaps, with music and refresh
ments, or whatever accompaniments
we 111 o-it desire; but some wav or
other let us all have some June joy
ing in the green, fragrant woods.
Two little steps toward universal
liberty are announced by telegraph
this morning; the Governor of the
Spanish West India Island of Porto
Rico has authorized meetings of the
people for all lawful purposes, and
the Government of the < -entral Ameri

corded religious liberty to the inhal>-
itants of that State. Small laves
thankfully received and larger ones
in proportion.
REPORTS of cholera come from
Louisiana and Mississippi and the
scarcely less alarming disease, spot
ted fever, is raging in many parts of
the Western States. If only these
reports and alarms make us more
careful to live rightly and wisely, to
make no needless exposures of our
own health, or require none of those
who are connected with us. they will
be beneficial to us all.
If we let fear or anxiety wear
away any portion of vigor or strength
that we might possess, it will be a
preparation for the ravages of dis
ease should it come near us. For
two years there have been threats ol
cholera but it has not come. Wheth
er it is coming this summer or not,
let us be temperate in eating, in
drinking, in working; and especially
in anticipating ills to come.
PERILS BY TEMPEST.
In the days long ago, say half a
century and longer, we heard terrific
; stories of tornadoes in tiie West In
dies; some farther oil', too, but that
was the nearest region of terror then
known. When Cowper wrote " Tue
Negro's Complaint," where these
lines occur:
"Is Uu-re as ye sometimes tell us,
Is there Oue who rules on high?
11.is He bid you buy ami sen us.
Speaking from His throne, the sky?
iAsk Him if your knotted scourges,
Matches, blood-extorting screws
i Are the means wldeli duty urges,
Agents of His wili, to use.
"Hark! He answers. Wiid tornadoes,
Strewing yonder sea with wrecks.
Washing towns, plantations, meadows,
Are Ure Voice with which He speaks.
lie, foreseeing what vexations
Ahie's -ens shouid undergo,
Fixed their tyrant's habitations
Where llis whirlwinds answer, No."
we thought with alfright of tropical
climc-s and islands of perpetual ver
dure, for it seemed that to them be
longed the tornado and destruction.
Dnt with our greater knowledge of
other parts of the world we find that
storm and tempest are, or may be,
j everywhere. We knew nothing then
of the country now comprising our
Western States, where but very late
ly the most awful storms ever de
; scribed have taken place. After the
fearful cold of the winter and ilie
terrible snow-fall early in May, by
which many persons and innumera
ble cattle and she-p peri -he 1, eanie
the cyclone of May in lowa and
Nebraska.
We do not remember ever seeing
before any account so fearful. Here
! are some extracts:
HuII I.IX o TON, lowa, .1/1/1/24, 1- 73.
—N >t far from Washington t >wn is
i the most accessible scene of disaster.
Here the storm swooped down upon
some dozen houses, the residences of
wealthy farmers, and swept them
from the face of the earth, as it' with
the tiesoiu of destruction. Mr. Cun
ningham's house and barn were blown
into splinters and carried away, but
the storm compensated for the theft
i>v a shower of saivered wood, boards
an i ratters which fell in the fields.
.Some of tue fowls were found dead
with but tew feathers upon them, the
feathers having been chafed olfv hile
rhe birds were whirling about in the
slot ,n atnid the myriads of abrading
substances.
There were four persons in the
!i Hise, women and children, who
were only slightly injured, though
the wind took the house away and
sucked them out of the cellar in
which they had taken refuge. To
crown all, the large granary near the
house was unroofed and several liun
jdred bushels of grain poured from it
into the cellar of the house as neatly
as if it had been done by an elevator.
The next farm was that of Mi'.
Davison. He, his wife and child and
his brother-in-law, Mr. Ilounsel, were
in the house when the storm struck
it. The house and barn were wiped
out as if tliev had been chalk figures
on a blackboard. Mr. Davison was
instantly killed, and Mr. Ilounsel
crushed so that he died in a few
hours. The wind tore some of the
clothing lVoin hm body, leaving onlj
selvages at his wrists and his ankles
and round his waist.
Mr. Alexander Gibson lias the fin
est house and outbuildings in the
county- The wind blew the barns to
bits. The house was in two part-.
One of these was turned quite around,
the other soared away iike a bird,
dropping the five inhabitants into
the cellar.
One woman was sick in bed having
her little child with her. Both were
cut and torn to pieces and blown in
various direction-. About twenty
people were killed.
The Modocs. —Massacre of tho Pris
oners.
SAN FRANC ISCO, June 9. —Dispatch-
es from Boyle's camp, dated yesterday,
relate the particulars of an atrocious
massacre of Modoc prisoners, supposed
to have been perpetrated l>y Oregon vol
unteers.
On Saturday morning James Fair
child and about a dozen other men
left Fairchild's ranehe, on Cottonwood
Creek, with seventeen Modoc captives,
including women and children, Miack-
Nasty .Jim. Bogus Charley, Tehee Jack,
Pony and Little John. The Indians
were in a wagon drawn by four mules.
At the crossing of Lost Hiver the
party encountered a body of Oregon
volunteers under command of Captain
Kiser. The soldiers gathered about the
wagon and questioned Fairchild. The
latter told them the Indians were all
Hot Creeks except Little John, and
that there were no charges against
tin in. Fairchild undertook to push
to Boyle's Camp, near Crawkys. On
the road Fairchild noticed two men
ahead riding to Rocky Point, as if to
intercept him. "When the team ap
proached the two men one of I hem pre
r present- d a needle gun at Fairchild say-
I, iwg. ''Get down you old white-headed
"By what authority?" said
Fairchild. "By mine. lam going to
kill the Indians and you too." was the
r reply. The leader caught hold of the
f mules and unhitched them, cutting the
- harness. Fairchild, clinging to the
lines, leaped to the ground.
The poor wretches implored for mer
ev. and begged Fairchild to save them.
• The warriors Were unarmed and knew
j that resistance was itseli ss. They were
th<- coolest in the party, although facing
inevitable death, but the women and
I children shrieked, groaned and wept
piteously. Fairchild had nothing but
L " a small pistol, and six inches from his
- ear was the muzzle of the needle gun.
t fie says that tears came into his eyes
i and he mingled his entreaties with those
e of the Modocs, in hopes that a massacre
might be avoided. He adds: "Itwas a
terrible scene, one I shall never forget.
' t shudder when I think of what I saw
1 and heard. The tearful voices of those
women and children still ring in my
| ears."
But the cowardly hounds were not to
lie bulked. A shot, and Little John lay
dead in the wagon with a bullet in his
i brain. The mules dashed away with
Fairchild, who became entangled in the ;
lines. Five more shots, by which Te
li e Jack, Pony and Mooch were killed
j and Little John's squaw frightfully
wounded m the shoulder. Away ahead
| ou tin road in the direction of Boyle's
j Camp a cloud of dust was perceived,
indicating the approach of a team.
The murd rers espied the dust and
-; shortly afterwards were riding rapidly;
.' away.
{• Sergeant Murphy, of Battery G, 4th
t Artillery, with ten men and a teamster
i came upon the scene of the massacre.
' The S< rgeant took charge of affairs and
1 remained with his men oii the ground,
i" Fairchild. tHe teamster and the wound
- t<! squaw with her two children came
_iin at two o'clock this morning. Fair

an escort were at once sent to bring in
' the prisoners, dead and alive,
-j No steps were taken for the appre
-3 heiision of the fellows who ]>erfonn< <l
j the bloody work. It is generally sup
posed that the guiity parties were Ore
gon volunteers. Fairchild is of that
' opinion himself. The warriors killed
5 , were not charged with murder. Those
; who know them best say they have only
participated in open fights. Every one
, here condemns t lie affair as atrocious and
without any excuse.
\ There is no doubt but that the nnir-
I" d< is were carried out upon a carefully
i arranged plan, as Fairchild noticed
i horsemen on the road ahead and behind
- him when the shots were fired. Had
i John Fairchild, instead of James, la en
■ pi t-cut. another murder might have
been added to the list, as the Oregon

New Cura for Insanity.
A new cure for insanity has been dis
j covered. A few days ago a handsome
young Irishman, of 24 years, was taken
to an insane hospital in New York, a
raving maniac. He was thrust into one,
of the cells in the lower part of the build
ing and with great difficulty pinioned
to bis bed. He yelled and struggled at
such a rate that lie was ordered to In
put into a straight jacket. The next
morning, while the physicians were try
ing to devise some proper treatment,
the warden sent for the young man's
sweetheart and in an hour's time a pret
ty blue-eyed Irish girl, blushing and
laughing came to the warden and said
she guessed she was "the only svvate
lieart Peter had." Slipping into the
cell of the madman, she went to his
bedside, put her arm about his neck
and kissed him. He ceased to struggle
and became quiet, she smoothed his
forehead, gently stroked his face, and
fed liim as though he were a child. The
hearty warden watched with delight the
progress of his remedy, which he called
homeopathic. At 6 o'clock, when the
rosy little physician kissed her patient
good-by, be was as sane as ever he was.
The warden now warrants a cure in
every case of insanity where the patient
lias a swi etheart.

Incendiarism.
The National Board of Fire Under
wliters, at their late meeting in the
' City of New York, resolved to raise a
fund of §IOO,OOO for the detection, con
viction and punishment of parties en
gaged in the nefarious business of in
cendiarism and arson. The Executive
! Committee of that Board, at their meet
ing 011 May 14th, 1*73, carried out the
resolution and ojiened the subscription.
We hail this movement as a step in
the right direction and condemn the
action as one not only likely to benefit
Underwriters, but also to protect the
public from wholesale loss. This action
is the more important when it is re
tnembered that the exjierience of the
large companies transacting the busi
ness of lire insurance in the United
. States shows that the proportion of loss
to be attributed to the above causes is
not less than 33 per cent, of the whole,
or a loss to the country of at least
twenty-five millions of dollars per an
num. — Evening Bulletin.

THE Teacher's Association of the sec
ond District of Allegany County, will
hold its next session in this village on
the 13th and 14th of June. A very in
teresting programme has been prepared
and the occasion promises to be a profit
able one to all interested in educational
matters. We trust that there will be a
good turn-out of teachers and persons
interested in educational progress, as
these re-unions are at once pleasant so
cial gatherings and practical experience
; meetings.
SPEAKING of the Constitutional Con
vention, the Ilarrisburg Patriot says:
Forewarned is forearmed! Tiie sincere
and earnest advocates of reform in the
convention must see that the work in
which they are engaged does not unnec
essarily lag a single second. Summer
vacations are for school-boys, not for
full-grown men. The heated term finds
the lawyer in court, the editor at his
disk. the smith at his anvil, the farmer
in the harvest field. Constitution-mak
ing is not more exhaustive of the m -n
--tal faculties than the employments of
the first two classes, and certainly not
more severe <>n the physical man than
the lalKirs of the last two. At any rate
such is the reasoning of the common
mind and the convention cannot half so
well afford to disregard that as to dis
card thesugg. stions of tliedilettanteism
which lias such mortal terror of a little
dust and sweat. In plain words, indus
trious ;> ople hate idleness and sloth and
will not tolerate them even in a Consti
tutional Convention.
IN the Constitutional Convention,
y< sterday a section of the article on leg
islation. embodying a prohibitory liquor
j law. was voted down. It was proposed i
| to submit the section as a separate pro- 1
I position, but even thus divorced it was
contended it would injure the chances
of the new instimnent. Many friends
of temperance in the convention voted
against the s. ction beeau.se they believed
the local option law sufiicient in the j
pr< mises.— Phi i 'phi' Pr<ss.
ABPSE OK POSTAL CARDS. —The
Daily Uraphin says: We are requested
to slat-- that parties who propose to use
the new postal cards for any unlawful
purpose spend their money in vain, us
i the cards go no further than the Pwt

U r understood, as the law says that all 1
cards on which are written abusive or <
obscene languagt shall be destroyed. j
