'Protect me," is the imploring cry of
a oomionaoie, well-led, well-clad per
sonage whom, at first sight, oao would
hardly take for a beggar. "Protect
me! I own but ten thousand acres of
jand in tho world. It is my all. It
is full oCcoul ; but the Englishmen and

the weather is so dread ful cold ? God
help us poor!" came from the chat
tering teeth of a toil-worn, care-worn
shivering woman, as sho measured
out with stinev eve a scanty fresh
supply of fuel to her waning firo.
No cry from her to the Government
for protection. No protection to
her from the greed of tho strong,
me cunning, me avaricious. "Work
for yourself. Work or starve Self-
help. Every ono for himself. If Gov
ernment gave bread or clothes or fuel
to the poor, it would demoralise them.
Take better care of the nennios vou

"Jlothcr.do give mo another blanket,

of a wiuler's night, on our Northern
frontier. "I have no more, child ;

"I don't know; but they say it's
all done to protect ns poor folks. A
longitey man told ns tho other night
the Government must protect us from
tho blanket-makers in England and
and other foreign countries."
"Yes, but John, over in Cannda
they have nothing but English blankets
and you can buy
two blankets there
for what ono costs here. Tho Eng
lish blanket-makers don't seem to bo
so hard on the poor poople after nil."
"Well, I can t toll the story exactly;
but the tonguey man mado it all out
clear. I think he said, too, that wool
wouldn't grow on our sheep unless
they was purtected."
"Well, John, you don't mean that
they kiver our American sheep 'with
blankets to make their wool grow.
and that's the reason blankets are so
scarce and so dear J"
"Well, I don't know about that; but
ho mado out that tho sheep must bo
purtected to get the wool, and then
the men who mado the wool into blan
kets must be purtected; clso mo'd
have to use the cheap foreign blankets,
and then he said we'd bo worso off."
"John, don't you think tho tonguey
man was nulling somo wool over vour
eyes r If I could got two blankets in
stead of one to keep tho children warm
the sheep could do well enough with
their natural kivcring. It seems to
me that we poor folks, what don't have
ny natural kiver of wool growing on
our backs, want pnrtection more than
"Well, that's) just what Deacon
WollofTsavs: ho snva these prices nur-
toct us as woll as the sheep ; and you
know the Deacon subscribes a good

"That's all true, John ; but then the
Deacon don't seem to get any poorer
for all he gives away ; and the Deacon
has got a great many sheep ofhisown ;
and whatever is good for his sheep
must bo good for tho Deacon's own
pocket; and they do say that ho owns
nart ol a big blanket factory down in
iihodo Island : and so, maybe, the
Deacon wrongs us poor folks out of
ten dollars and then gives us back one
dollar of it in charity; maybe, if the
poor bad chcup blanket and cheap
clothes, they wouldn't want any chari
ty. You can't make mo believe we're
any better off for having only one
blanket when, if they was cheaper wo
might bave two."

Tho Cambria freeman notices tho
death of James Ross; who died a few
days since in tho Poor House of that
county, and says that his career chal
lenges a more than common obituary
notice. In early life, some fifty year
since, deceased married a Miss Brown,
of Mifllin county, and upon the death
of his father-in-law, administered up
on bis estate. Among the papers
found wore a number of unlocated land
wurranU. With these in his posses

bria county, and for a timo sottled al
Munster. WhHol vre he becuma im
pressed with the idea that there was
sufficient vacant land along tho Clear
field creek, in tho northeastern por
tion of Cambria county, to fill his
Acting upon this impulse, in 1837,
and 1838, he procured Mr. Jacob Lev-
crgood, tbe then Dcptuty Surveyor of
Cambria county, to locate a large num
ber of these warrants, which were re
turned to tho Land Office and accept
ed. He afterwards removed to these
lands, took possession, built suwmills
and sold to others; and continued to
exercise ownership without molesta
tion nntil 1841.
It seemed from the sequel that these
land bad already been, appropriated
by a body of warrant known as the
Barton warrants, and that the title
had became vested in William A Bay
ard and Henry Barclay ; an ejectment
to try the title was commenced in 1844,
for the interest of Henry Barclay
Mr. Bayard having previously died.
In this action the plaintiff succeeded
and tho case went to the Supreme
Court, where the judgment was af
firmed, then an action was brought
for tho whole body, and tho title thus
litigated until about 1801, when the
last caso was finally decided. During
this period there were- some seven or
eight verdicts it was thrice in the
Supremo Court tried once in the U
S- Circuit Court, and removed to the
Supreme Court, where, however, it
was not tried.
During all this litigation, Mr. ltoss

lie had impressed great numbers ot
intelligent men, including even law
yers, with the feasibility of his tills,
and at ono time a jury could scarcely
have been found in Cambria county to
render a verdict against him.
An old mac when the litigation end
ed, his mind was somewhat impaired.
Poverty, too, followed, until finally be
became an inmate ot the poor house.
Yet bo never, to his dying day in
prosperity or adversity, in succos or
defeat, whether sane or insane for a
moment doubled his right to the land
which had been tho subject of litiga
tion. His expectations and their result
show the vanity of human undertak
ings. Litigating for some twenty
years the title to whole townships of
land, he died without enough lor his
grave. At the time of his death be
was in his oighticth year.

in the harmonies of nature. It glit

A Lesson. A nation w hich relieves
tho oppression upon any section of its
people is always rewarded by the
happiness and gratitude of tho inhab
itants of that section. Thus, Austria
has recently restored a constitutional
government in Hungary, and the en
thusiasm and rejoicings of tho Hun

now no more loyal and obedient sub

people of Hungary. Kindness and
