was onco said after A Sunday
morning sorvico in uosion, at wu
oulcialod, that he
offerod up the most eloquont prayor
ever listened to by a Boston congre
gation. Mr. Evorott's prayers may
have boon nore eloquent, but it would
have been difficult for bim to make
thorn more pointed than tbnt which
was recently delivered by tho Chap
lain of the United Suites Senato. II is
words are reported at follows :
"0 Lord our God, we come In thii plaoe to de
plore before Thee the spirit of lyiog which ii
abroad, and wa beseeoh Tbea to rebuke tha giant
demon of slander that atalka forth, easting upon
all tha earth a fearful ihadow ; paralyie the band
that writes the wilful detraction j palsy the longue
that etten wanton calumny, the thingi whiob
tend to undermine all the oonfldenoe In tha good
and clve a maliirnant power to all the bad cle
ment! for the demoralisation and deatruotion of
Duman toclety. Let Tby flaming tpirit take
vengeance upon the false aoeuser and oonsume
this spirit of ruin from all of the land. This we
eak in the neeae and for tha sake of Him who wat
truth itself. Amen.''
This was pretty sharp ; but we do
not think the reverecd gonllomnn
performed his wholo duty on the sub-
joot of lying by simply offering a
Let bim ao to work now and preach
a Bcrmon about it; and in order that
bo may do bis subject full juhiioo, we
will take the liberty ot suggesting one
point of view from which we think it
may bo treatod witli peculiar aptness.
Ul course he will begin by announcing
lying in gonoral. and with somo other
commonplace remarks, xiioso no can
make to suit bimsoll, anil as liioy are
not likoly to attract attention we
shall not dwoll upon thorn.
It ia when be comos to treat oi iy
ing about this administration that our
advice may sorve him. And tho point
wuicb wo should mako. It we wore
preaching on that subject, is, that
wbilu in point of sinfulness it ia wicked,
and in tbia rospoot like an otbor lying,
it la also entirely void oi ovory oxcuso,
and worse than useless, bocuuso tbore
is no lie wblcb can be told or invonled

Life in Portuguose Country Towna.
Tbore ia nothing that would strike
a travolor frosh from England, Ger
many or Fro n oo moro tbau tho great
rarity of ronl conntry houses in Por
tugal. It is entirely ajjninst the genius
of tho pcoplo to live a country lifo.
The Portuguese ia too oooiablo to en

and fields nnd mountain!. . lie baa

in hit own stylo, better than any na
tion in Europe exoopt ourselves ; he
haa a sineoro delight in country lifo
and country aoonory, but bo cannot
long support tho otter soiitudo of the
country. A Portuguose nobleman," if
bo b nob enough, lives in .Lisbon or
will visit it for a month or two in tbe
autumn ; evon thon lie will ofton rath
or endure tho misery of a seasido
lodging among a crowd than go in
land. Tho larger of tho country
towns have streets full of gentlemen t
bouses ; and bore vogotate, from yoar
to year, familios who aro just rich
enough to live upon thoir incomes
without working. To livo, indood,
as tbe Portuguoso dp in such towns,
need cost but little. A largo house,
with a plot of cabbages a kaleyard
behind it ; with whilo-wasbcd walls,
floors nncarpolod, doron woodoo
chairs, one or two doal tables ; no pic
tures on the walls; no mirrors; no
tablos pleasantly strewn with books,
magazines, nowspapers and ladles'
work ; no suoh thing visible as a pot
of cut - flowers ; no rare china, no
docks, no bronnos none of tbe hun
dred triflos and ouriosities with which,
in our housos, wo show our taste, or
our want of it, but which either way
give such a 1 charm and individual
character to our Knglish homes. All
these negatives dosoribo tho Utterly
dreary hubitations of the middle-class

women dd noodle-work, gosaip, go to
mass doily and look out of windows
by tbo hour. Except the ono short
walk to church at 8 o'clock in the
morning, a Portuguese lady hardly
ever appears in the streets. As for
the men, they lounge about nmong
the shops, they smoke innumerable
papor cigarettes, and thoy .take a
"siesta" in the boat of tho day. If
tbore is sunshine, they stand in groups
at tbo street corners, with umbrellas
over their .heads; in winter, they
wear a shawl ovor Choir shouldors,
foldod and put on threc-cor norwise, as
a Frennh or Knglish woman's shawl is
worn for this is a fashion in Portu
gal, and the Spaniards laugh fx good
deal at their neighbors on tho score.
of tboir being a nation who Invert tho
duo order or things, and wttose wo
men wear cloaks and tbo man srjawis.
In these towns there is novor any
news, and if two men are Scon in
cagor discussion of somo matter of
apparently immense importance, and
if ono happens to pass near enough to
overbear tho subject of conversation,
be sure that ono ot tliera te piungeu

in tho prico of a pound of tobacco.
An American jreotloman of my ac
quaintance told mo that be had never
passed two rortugucse in conversa
tion without hearing ono of two words
spokon, "tostno" or "rapariga," fi
nance or love, lnore aro not oven
fashions for them to think about;
yonng mon and old men dress alike,
but tho younger ones wear exceeding
ly tight oools, and "when thoy take
their walks abroad," it Is obvious that
they do so in considerable discomfort.
Tho voune mon. however, have ono
occupation moro important cvon than
wearing tight boots, nnd which, al
most, in fact, goes with it that of
making the vory mildent form of love
known among mon. Tho procosp, In
dood, la carriod on in bo l laionio a
mnnnor, and with so much proper
fooling, that I doubt if even the strict
est Knglish govorness would find any
thing in it to object to. Tho young
gentlemen pay thoir addresses by
simply standing in front of tho house
occupied by thn object of thoir nlToo
tlons, whilo the young person in ques
tion looks down approvingly from an
upper window, and thoro tbo matter
ends. They are not within spooking
distanco, and have to contont thom
solvcs with oxprossivo glances and
dumb show; for it would be thought
highly unbecoming for tho young la
dy to allow a billet doux to flutter
down into the stroot, while the laws
of gravitation stand in tho way of the
uppor flight or such a documont un
weighted, at least, with a stone,' and
this, of course, might risk giving tbe
young Indy a black eye, or breaking
hor fothor's window-panes. So the
lovers there romaln. often for hours,
fooling no doubt very happy, but
looking unutterably foollish. Thoso
silent courtships tumetiiuos continue

It was a bright, sunny day, and tbe
lake was almost doad calm. When

It ssomcd almost certain that the boat

Almon Fuller dropped where ho stood,

his hair burned off, and hands and
face crisped by tbo scorching heat,
and only abandoned his post when
the Erie was sinking. A number of
persons wore lost in that appalling
disaster, but the great majority wore

Legend of a Bad Indian.
THE FLATtlEAD WAY OF ACCOL'NllNO FOR
Till HOT WATEB IN WASSWIILER's
A long, long time ago, according to
the traditions of tbo Flathead I ndiuns,
they went once a yoar to bunt buffalo,
juot as thoy do now, and their trails
were the same up the Hon t.ate and
Little Muck foot and down Ten Mile.
The present site of Helena was a fa
vorite camping placo. "In those days,"
according to ono of tho chief's of said
tribe well versod in its legendary lore,
"thore was one of the Flutheod braves
who waa a bad Indian ; he bad no re
spect lor the virtue of tbe beautiful
Indian niuidonsj ho was a regular borae
jockey mado racos lor pomes and
butlalo rooos, ail on llio square, and
thon "dropped" tho opponent's fleet
broncho ; be played that ancient and
respectod game of "old aledgo" in such
a dextrous manner ae to vanquish all
bit, adversaries, who never could ao
count for the manner in which ho
"turned Jack ;" he had a way of "hold
in cm ' at draw poker -that mado bis
rod brethren swear in tbo most op-
proved Flathead jargon ; in short, ho
waa a "very Dad Indian." unco upon
a timo, whon they were camped on
tho little stroajn whore Holena is now
situated, on their way to hunt buflulo,

An Almost Forgotten Hero.
A writer of tbe Chicago Tribune
rendors tributo to tho memory of Col
onel Jonathan P. Miller, of Vormont,
of tbo volunteers in tbo cause of Gre
cian indopondonco. Miller, then a
young man in tbo university of Ver
mont, was ono of tho first to go out
witn JJr. . u. iiowo, who was city
years youngor than ho is now. Mil
lorarrivod at Missolonghl a few months
after Iho death of Lord Byron, and
greatly distinguished himself int' the
war, finally onduring all tbe horrors
of the seige of Missolonghi tho long
est and most temblo siege or modern
times. The issue of it, it will be re
momborcd, was the assembling of tho
women and chidron of a population ol
elifht thousand in one place, where
they themselves applied tlio match to
tho train that insured their destruc
tion, whilo their husbands and fathers
bowed through the Turkish lines, one
thousand out of throe thousand surviv
ing. Colonel Miller, after tbe peace,
bought tho sword of llyron from the
family of a Grock officer, to whom
liyron bad given It, and who was sub
sequently found doad on tho batllo
field, with tbe sword knotted to bis
wrist. Tbo valuable souvenir, after
somo vicissitudes, returned to the pos
session of Colonel Millor, and is treas
ured by bis descendants. According to
tbe Chicago Tribune writer, the lady
in whose possession it now is, was
obligod to floe from ber rcsidonce on
tbo night of tbe Chicago fire, and only
saved a small box of plate, tho shawl
thrown over hor head and the sword
of Byron. Millor brought borne with
him two sons or Madame Milliades,
whose husband claimod a lineal descent
from tho horo ot Marathon, and was
slain on the same field with Marco
Hozarris Hor fortuno boing ruinod
sho entrusted her boys to him : one
was adopted into his own laraily, and
the other into that of a friend. These
two bavo sinco, grown up to success
sb A morican citizens. Colonel Millor
himself married wealth, and settled
down to tho practico of law at Mont
polior. As a member of the legisla
ture be introduced the first resolution
on the subject of slavery, and became
ono tho treo soil party in that tnato,

The Son of Peter tho Great.
Alexis, the ill-fated son of Kudosia
and rotor the Great, bad long incurred
tbe resentment ot Ins lather. Of a
tall and commanding appoarance, be
was looked up to by a nation among
whom colossal stature was particular
ly esteemed. Around bim ho had
collected associates who plungod into
every sort of vioe and lieentiousnoss ;
be oponly opposed tho reforms of bis
father, and, foaring his displeasure,
lolt the country.
Peter, discovering bis retreat al
Naples, ordered bim to return to St.
Petersburg, promising forgivonesa if he
did so; on the other hand threatening
him with tbo most drcadlul curses if
he refused. Alexis, relying on his
promises, relurnod, and bad barely
arrived lielore be waa surroundod and
imprisoned ; and thon bogan a most
fiainlul ordeal, which was carried on
or five months. Petor daily visited
bim, and working on bis woak mind,
prevailed on him to aecuso himself of
the most dreadful crimes, and to name
all the friends who were in any way
implicated. Ho thon nominally con
sulted the priests and nobles what
course to pursue; thoy, in awe of his
power, pronounced sontonce of death
against Alexis, and Potor, in snito of
his previous protestations, confirmed
it. Seated in a prison at Moscow, by
a dim light, we sco the unfortunate
princo bouring tho soutenoo from tbe
lips of bis fulbor, who actually mm
clod bia tears with his. The door
opoos, and a viul is handod to the
monarch, who pours out tho contonts
and prollers thorn to his son as a sooth

dreadful nature follow, and before

out that tho nows that sontonco of

Russian Empire. Potcr aflorward al
