How a Great Line Sprang np.
Tbe noted Cunnrd Steamship Com
pany, says Jluik Twain, is composed
simply ot two or throe grundcbildron
who liuve stoppod into the shoes of a
couploof old Scotch (uthors; (or Burns
and liaclvor wero the Cunard Com
pany when it was born ; it was Burns
and Maclvor when tbe orginaior hud
passed away ; it is Burns and Maclvor
still in tbe third generation novor
lias oeou out ot lu two lumilios.
Burns was a Glusgow morcbant, Mao
Ivor was an old sea doc who suited a
nbip lor bitn 'u ourty times. That
Tonrjci s earnings were cnsl into a sink
ins fund: with the money titer built
another ship, and then another, and
tnus tne old original packet line Irora
Glasgow to liolil'itx was established.
At that time tbe malls were slowly
and expensively carried in English
Govern mont vessels. Burns and Mac
Ivor and Judge Halihurton ("Sam
Slick") full to tioimidcring a scheme of
getting the job ot can-ring tbuso muils
10 privuto bottoms. In order to man
age tbe thing they needed U be quiet
about it, and also they nocded fusler
iiulihurton bad a relative who was
not a shining success in practical lil'o.
bat b.A w"tnvt)tiv hexid t wavvie,
Sam Cunard; be took bis old jack
knife and a shingle and sat down and
whittled out this enormous Itoyal Mail
Line of vessels that we call the Cun
ardors a great navy, it is doing
business in every ocean; owning forty
five steamships of vast cost; conduct
ing its afluirs with the rieid method
and systom of a national navy ; using
a company uniform ; retiring superan
nuated and disabled men and ollicers
on permanent pension!, and number
ing its servants by hundreds and
thousands. In its own privato estab
lishment in Liverpool it keens four
thousand men under pay. That is
what Sum. Cunard whittled out.
That is lo say, be wbittlod out a li'.tle
model lor a last vosscl ; it was satis
factory ; bo was instructed to go and
get tlio mail contract, simply under
bis own name ; be did it and company
bocame commonly known as tho Cun
ard Company; then tbe compand tried
steam and tnado it work ; they pros
pered, and bought out llaliburton, and
also Cunard's Tittle interest; they re
moved Cunard to .ngiund and made
him their London agent; ho grew rich
and wbon be died be died not as a
poor, dreaming provincial whittlor of
experimental models, but as tbe great
Sir Samuol Cunard, K. C. B., or G. W.

sovoreign had knighted bim.
Cleaning is a subjoct by itself. Its
miseries bavo bean learned In suffer
ing and rhymed in song. It is tho
drcud of masculine humanity and is
one of tbe things that periodically
transfer soroo amiable women into
fretful and fault-finding ones and make
sappy homos temporarily distressing.
Now'lhcre is no need of half tho dis
comfort and tneonvenienco, the head
acho and pneumonia and nouralgia,

Solf-roview, often a painful, is al
ways a profllablo task. We have been
twelvo years adrift from Domocrutic
landmarks, twelve rears under the
guidanoe and discipline of a party of
iiign moral idous, ana it is good lor us
to look about as a little, seo where
we are, and take stock of our bearings
and belongings, in Order to make up
intelligently tbe account of profit and
loss in tho nutional balance-sheet. It
is confidently assertod by the Repub
lican press and leaders that we have
been enormous gainers by their do
parluroi from anoient party faith aod
principles, botb in material, soclal,snd
moral renpeots. Tbo chimes have pro
olaiined it in triple bob-majors that
the lofty, generous and wist princlplea
of the now-light party, tbo greut and
beneficent measures that have marked
our progress under their auspices, and
the harmony which tbis party has
shown witb the gonius and character
of our institutions -we Quote the
words of an eminent mouthpiece of
auvanceu .Radicalism, In order that
tbore may be no mistake about it
are much more than enough to com
pensate us for tho trifling little motes
just now floating in our sunbeams,
and tbe fow incommodities which peo
ple seem to suffer In consequence of
tnese departures. J. his may all be bo,
but if so, the statement will assuredly
stand tbe test of comparison and fact.
Tbe party of high moral ideas has
generally proceeded towards th
achievement of its supposed reforms
by processes peculiar to itself, nnd
processes not of universal acceptance
with that school of statesmanship
wiuoh is loundod on science and ex
nenonce. It baa reasoned like us
iavorito poet and philosopher when be
said that "Beauty is its own excuse
for boing." Reforms, tbe new-light
doctrinaires have invariably arguod,
justify tbe methods employed to bring
them about. The constitutional limi
tation tnut not stand in tho way of
firogress. There is always a higher
uw than the statute, und when these
two conflict we must yield obedience
to me lex non tcnpla, and give the
morcly human ordinance, the go-by.
In illustration of tbo operation of this
principle we have seen Vico-President
Colfax laloly trying to oppose his

to the universal luw of evidence, and
tbe partisans of bis sect stoutly con

Undor tho operation of its system

Tho system of Interference with tbo
stales and wtlh individuals has crown
up out of a scries of scnaruto acts,
each of which was done under pretext
oi military and political necessity in
tbe period of civil war. One result
has been tho abolition of slavery.
That result naturally grew out of tbo
war, and is a great and unquestiona
ble boon, tbo moral and material bone-
fits of which could scarcoly be esti
mated. But on tho high morul idea
programmo that result could not bo
accomplished by legilimnto processes,
but must bo effected through a fla
grant violation of tho sanctify of the
Constitution. This violation led lo
others, the pretext of which was still
reform, still that tho end justified tho
means, until, in nocessary and logical
sequonce, camo negro sullVngo and tbo
wretched enforcement bills which are
spronding anarchy, the reward of
tyranny, ov'or tbe land.
The systom of interference eguin
manipulated in tbe interest of high
moral ideas gave us the protective
tariff and its vongonors of subsidy and
Government partnership. When the
cloak of public necessity was torn
away from this comprehensive scheme
of plunder it ronowod its cluim lo the
shield of high morul ideas by profess
ing to advance natiouul industries,
creulo homo maikots, and elevate the

resulted a lianlio eompelilion uf liar

Undor this system the tortile prairies
of tho West and tbo brown tilths of
tho South are regularly skimmod and
scraped in order to foed tbo great
monopolists and add coin to tbo pletho
ric stores of the great capitalists.
Undor this system our commerce has
dwindled away, we bavo lost tbe cur
rying trade of tho world, am? our
merchant seamen, who numbered 800,-
000 in 1800, are now only 200,000 all
told. Under this system tho sources
01 law and fountains ol 'justice ure
equally corrupt. The statute is fitted

san judgo adjusted to tbe invidious
staliite, so that the party or tho indi
vidual gets tbo Bcrvice of tho ordi
nanco and tho person, botb naturally
without lunolion excopt as sorvantsof
tne state, it is inseparable from a
regime of high moral Ideas (and to
do it justice the Republican party
Booms qulto content to recognize tbo
concatenation) that judges like Durell
and Sherman should be the corollaries
of judges like Bradley and Strong.
For whon men have such lofty ideas
about humanity, progress, social re
generation, and all thut sort of rot as
to be willing to givo up lo parly what
was meant for mankind, it is natural
lhat they should bcoIc pecuniary ad
vantages and opportunities loss by
legal and established methods than in
accordance wilb a personal and ex
aggerated measurment of llioir own
importance. This was tbo rock upon
which Pomcroy split, and it was a
noliceublo feature io Colfax's squirmy
testimony thut bo made a forcible
merit of sponding all bis legitimate in
come in bis housekeeping, and so per
haps thought he was entitled to lay
up tbe illegitimate and clandestine
earnings which camo to bim by Icttor
or otherwise, against that rainy day
when a well sorved but ungrateful
people should dismiss bim lo go whence
he came. The same feeling seems to
have actuated Schenck when be went
abroad with bis ambassadorial and
plenipotentiary credentials in one
pocket, and tbe shares of the Emma
Mining Company in tho othur. The
same feeling was palpably at work in
Sickles's bosom, when he endeavored
to pocket pay as a minister and pay
asasoldier. And tho suspicion winch,
whether well or ill-founded, was at
least very generally entertained, that
tho President was accustomed to bar
ter tbe public offices at his disposal in
exchange for contributions to his pri
vate purse, must be acccptod as acorn
plimcntury testimonial lo iho belief
lhat ho bad grown to be a full-fledged
disciple of tbe party of high moral
ideas, and so thought himself untitled
to rewards in proportion to bis deserts
and not merely within tbo measure of
bis statutory salary.
Tho revenue officers wbo adminis
tered their offices, first for their own
emolument, next for the advantage of
their party, and lastly lor the benefit
of tbo Government, were brought np
in the school of high morul ideas.
This Bumo school nas likewiso con
tributed the swarms of carpet-baggors
who bsve overrun tho South. The
principlo of interference in all sublu
nary thing which begins by appropri
ating tho profits of legitimate trade to
the bolstering of illegitimate enter
prise, which proceeds by squandering
on privileged corporations und swind
ling monopolies the people's common
estate in the public lands, nnd now
wants to seizo upon our educational
systems in the interest f publishing
clique, nnd upon private lolegrophy
in the in tores ts of consolidated job
bery, has naturally oncouraged new
(angled notions in respect botb of per
sonal liberty and State and municipal
soil' government. The act of habeas
corpus, once our birthright, has grown
to be a mere tradition, und the party
of high moral idous is restivo and im
patient even against that small vestige
of a once sacred franchise. The power
which assumes to create provisional
governments over the conveniently
lapsed sovereignties of Stales has not
been content until it has reached its
present position of overturning at will
sucb cxccu'.ivos as aio distasteful lo it
nnd selling up others more convenient
to Its purposes. It might have seemed
a long road in Abraham Lincoln's day
from a military governorship to a
civil satrapy, but tho journey has been
made, though Lincoln has not been
eight years dead. And tho word
feature of il is that tho party of high
morul ideas, while thinking no great
things of Casey, Pincbback, Durell,
and Kellogg, do not seem to find the
leasl cause tor alarm in the disastrous
and despotic precedent sot by tbo

Abroad our power and our aggres

General Duties of Road Supervisor,-
Tbo Road Supervisors of one of the1
towiiBhins of Adams oounty wore pros--
ecuted and tried A few weeks ago for
neglect or refusal to repair a township"
or publio road. On a trial of tbe caso
the lion Robert J. Fisher, Prosldont
Judgo of that district, defined, at.
longtb, tho duties of Supervisors. We
publish lhat part of his opinion for
tbe benefit of Supervisors and tbe pub
lic generally :
Tbo general road law of 1838 re
quires the voters of each township to
eloct annually two Supervisors, and
they aro jointly liable for tbe proper
repair of the roads and bridges io
their township. Thoy cannot divide)
the township, so as to relieve them
selves from liability for tbe repairs of
roads and bridgos in certain localities
of tbe township. The two Supervi
sors constitute the board and their of-
ficittl acts must be joint.
They possess very largo powers and
are criminally responsible lor neglect
of duly. They are bound to keep tho
roads and bridges of tbo township in
Tbey should bavo sufficient ditches
dug upon the two sides of tbe road to
carry off all tho water; they should
re novo nil loose stones from off tbo
road, and tbey should pike or other
wise improve low places; they should
cut ditches from the road leading Into
the Holds to carry off the water, and
should any porsun fill up theso ditches
thoy should be taken before a Justice,
and fined. If the Supervisors permit
ditches to bo fitted up, whereby tbo
water is thrown upon the road, then
Supervisors may be indicted for neg
lect of duty. Supervisors have a right
to go upon adjoining property Tor
stone, Band and gravel, the value to be
fixed by reierees. it is tho duty ol
the Supervisors alio to make and re
pair bridges ovor small creeks nnd
rivulets and docp gullies.
If tho Supervisors neglect lo repvir
tbo roads, or to koep them open of Iho
width the records of the roads call for
them to bo opened, they aro liable to
Publio highways, laid out, approved,
or ontered on record, sball be, as soon
as practicable, effectually opened and
constantly kept In repair; and all
publio roads shall, at all seasons, bu
kept clean of all impediments to essy
and eonveniont passing and traveling,
at the exponso of the respective town
ships And whenever Supervisors
neglect or refuse to opcu a publio
road, or to koep in repair, they render
themselves liable to punishment by in
dictment and fine.
Publio roads, on a line which divides
two townships, sball bo opened, mado,
kept clear and in repair at tbe joint
charge of sucb townships; and if eith
er township in any case necessarily
incurs more than its due proportion of
sucb chsrgo, it shull be lawful for such
township to recovor lrom the other
township tbo excoss incurred.
Supervisors have power, and aro re
quired, at the expense of their town
ship, to purchase wood, timber aod
other materials necessary for tho pur
pose of making, maintaining and re
pairing tho public roads and highways,
and to employ, ovcrsco and direct a
suflicient number of laborers lo exo
cuto promptly and effectually these
Ono Supervisor has power to em
ploy men to do tbe ordinary ropairs
upon tbe roads, but be eunuot bind
the township by a contract for tbe
opening of a new road. Sucb con
tract is an act requiring deliberation
and Judgment, and therefore must be
Ibe joint act of the Supervisors.
Supervisors have power and author
ity to enter upon any lands or enclo
sures, and cut, open, maintain and re
puir ull such drains or ditobos through
tbo same as they shull judge necessa
ry to carry tho water from the roads
doing uo unnecessary damago lo the
owners of the lands, and repairing all
breaches of fences tbey shull make.
Tne Airless Moon.. ,
Among the illusions swept away by
modern scienco was tho pleasant fan
cy that tho moon wus a habitable
globe like tho earth, its surface diver
sified witb seas, lakes continents and.
islands, and varied forms of vegeta
tion. Theologians and tiU'iinrigravo
ly discussod tbo probabilities of lis
being inhabited by a ruco of soDlient
boings, with forms and faculties like
our own, and even propounded schemes
for opening commuuicalion with them,
in cuse tbey existed. One of those
was to construct on tbe broad high
lands of Asia a series of geometrical
figures so gigantic as to bo visible
from our planetary neighbor, on tbe
supposition lhat tbo moon people
would reoognixo Iho object and imme
diately construct similar figuros in re
ply. Extravagant and absurd as it
may appoar in the light of modern
knowledge, the establishment of this
Terrestrial and Lunar Signal Sorvico
Bureau wus treated as a feasible)
sehonio, although practical difficulties
which so often keep men from making
fools of themselves, stood in tho way
of actual experiment ; but the discus
sion was kept up at intervals, until it
was discovered that if there weropeo

Beautiful to the eye of tbo distant

No vegetation clothes its vast plains
of stony desolation, traversed by mon
strous crevasses, broken by cnoimous
peaks that riso liko giganlie tomb
stones into spuce; no lovely forma of
olouds float in tho darkness uf the
sky. There dnvliino is only night
lighted by a ray less sun. There is no
rosy dawn in the morning and to twi
light in the evening. Tbe nights aro
pitch-dark. In daytime the solar
beams uro lost against tho j'ggod
ridges, Ihe sharp points of tho rocks,
or ihe steep sides of profound abysses,
nnd the eye only sees grotesque shapes
relieved aguinst fantastic, ehndowt)
black as Ink, with none of that pleas
ant gradation-and d illusion of light,
none of the subtle blending uf light
and shadow, which mako the charm
of a lerrestriul landscape. A fuint
conception ol' ibo horrors of a lunar
day may Le funned from au Illustra
tion representing a landscape taken
in the moon In tho center of the
mountainous region ol Aristnrchus.
There ta no color, nothing but dead
white and black. The rucks reflect
