Superfluous Lying. was onco said after A Sunday It lay ieb morning sorvico in uosion, at wu Kdward Jitcrott 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 prayor, 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 about Ibis Administration wbicn is half os bad oa the truth. Tolioagainst the present Administration, thoreforo, Is to lie witbout any object, and more ly for tbo sako oi lying. Lot the Chaplain put all this into his sermon, and we think it will be a very good sormon; and wo will print it for bim in the Sun, and will put ovor it in big letters, "The Sunlight of Trutb on JLying. ' The Chaplain will tbus clear bis conscience aud do publio service. iV. Y. Sun. Telkorapbio Clocks. In Pitts burghj Pa., an oloctrio clock bas been eolablisbea to niovo the hands of sev enty dilTorent clocks, scattorod all ovor tho city. The motive clock is poworful. and has a pondulum com posed ol hollow coils of coppor wire. Thoso swing to nnd (ro over tho polos oi borsoshoo mngnots, and evory time they pats from one polo to the oppo site a current of electricity U called up Inductively Jn tbo ooils, Hows up the wire, and thence to the sovonly diulft, giving a enrront of opposite na ture at evory swing.

PRINCIPLE81 CLEARFIELD, PA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 1874. 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 dure to be surroundod only by wood and fields nnd mountain!. . lie baa many of our northern taBtoi ; be likes field aporUi in moderation j bo ridoa 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 LXT?l?ol 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 Portuguese For occupations, the 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 despair or kindling with enthusi asm at a fall or rise of a half-ponny 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 for vory long poriods belure the lover oan ask the fatal question, or the lady return tbe final answer. The Acw Quarterly Magazine "Head tjs, Somebody !" A corres pondent of a neighboring journal tolls of a oour.try clork in a rural town who had a pot oaif which bo was training up in the ways of nr. ox, Tho calf walkod around very peacenik J under I - r . i , . l:i i , -,!' one uiiu oi vno yotto wnuo Jir. lura hold up the other end, but in an unfor tunate moment tho manconcojtrd tho idea of putting his own nock into tho yoko, to lot toe ealf see how it would work wi'Ji a partner. The frightonod mister ealf, elevating ills &il and Jiis voioo, struck a "dnael ran" for tbo villogo, and Mr. Clerk wolit along with his head -down and his plug bat In band, blru1"in overy nerve to keep up, and orylng ul the top of his volco, "Uoro we como, darn 00. f fool souls; head us, somebody!'' 1 LF.OIHI.ATIVI DgflrlTTtON.-Thoro Is' a bill before tho Logiclalure defining the Corrupt solicitation of members of tht legislature slate, county, elootion, municipal or othor publio ollioors and porscribing tho punishment therefor.

The Itrlo Dispatch, of February 2G, says : "Fifteon days in jail for vagran cy"(wns tho sentenoe imposod on James Lafl'orty, a gray-headed, wan dering vagabond of the happy go luclrr stripo, who is scarcely ever so ber, out wbo, drunk or sober, is harm less" to all except himself. He was a hero once j one of the men in reality thrtt John Day must have imsginod wherl be wrote tho graphio linos of tbe engineer of the Prairie ilollo ! "I'll told bar noisle agalnat tbe bank Hat tha bit galoot i ashore." Oft the 0th of August, -1841, the steam boat Krie, then tho finest on tbe lakes,and which had only made hor trial trip previously having then on boar,! Marge number of tbe oitisens Hrio,witb their families, and also the "Presquo lale Band, which bad stayed on from the timo of tbe trial excursion left Buffalo for this port. It was a bright, sunny day, and tbe lake was almost doad calm. When noaring Dunkirk the boat was discov ered to bo on fire, and the flames spread rapidly. She was hoadod for shoro, and tho horror-stricken passen gers orowded the forward part of the boat as she clove through the water. Two men were standing at the whool. Almon Fuller, of Wesleyvillo, and James Lafforty the drunkon vaga bord sent to jail yoslerday of Erie. It ssomcd almost certain that the boat oould not reach tho beach, and every thing that would float a humon, being waa made use of as passengors and ore ? throw themselves overboard, but whilo there was life there was hope. Almon Fuller dropped where ho stood, dying at his post. James Lafl'orty stayed, though bis clothes were on fire, 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 saved. The wheelman who had bare ly escaped with his life and the mem ory of tho one who diod where bo workod, were honored ,tbon, but that is upwards of thirty years ago, and the surviving hero of that day is now only a drunkon vagabond, who must soon drop unnoticed in a pauper s grave. Legend of a Bad Indian. THE FLATtlEAD WAY OF ACCOL'NllNO FOR Till HOT WATEB IN WASSWIILER's SPRINGS. 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, tho Uevii "called lor tbe wickod bravo, and told him his time bad como, and Lhat ho must accomnanv him to tho unhappy hunting ground oi bad Indi f . . : . ans, lb Indian told the wickod Spirit lhat bo had somo business mat ters to arrango witn otnor braves ol the tribo, such as 'A few collections to mako, etc, nnd that if his Satanic mnjos'y would go out to tho prosont site of Wass waiter's hot springs, bo would come as soon as tho wind quit blowiDg. Tho devil agreed to the terms, and deportod to await tho lull ing of tho wind and the eorainirof the bravo. As the wind has never quit blowing, his victim has novor iipponrod, and the Indians say tho dovil ia still oampod thero, and that the hot wator of the springs is takon from tho wa ters of Ton Milo for use in his camp, from wlionco it omorgos in its prosont heated state. The Fate of an Koo-eatino Hen. A way to prevent bona from eating thoir okki is to fill an cga with a solu tion of pepper, and put it back in the neBt. ; A Uanbury roan bas tried this, and says it works liko a charm. lie put a pretty good doss of pepper in the egg, and placed it in the nost of the oriminal. rrotly soon tho bon como around and took hold. It was a brin- dle animal, with long logs, and soino- what oonooited, It dipped its bill and inhaled tbe dolicnoy, Then it came outdoors. It didn't gallop, wo don't mean, but it oatne out camo cut to took at the scenory, and soo if it was going to rain, its mouth was wido open, and tho foal bora on the top of its head stood straight up. Then it commenced to go around the yard like a ?ircus horse, Once in awhile it would' stuj; and push out ono log in a lone of astonlHlimoni, nd thon holler "tiro," aud start on again.

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.

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.

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.

Beauty Everywhere Somebody bas said that beauty la not local, but purely a question of taBto that tho eye form it own idea - of beauty, and ao on and now an huropcsQ traveler discovers lhat Hin doo women aro pleasing to look at. "Thoy attract the most," he Bay, "by tnoir graceful carnage their pictur esque drapery, consisting of a full skirt and a sort of brunous, which passes over tbe head, almost complete ly veiling the facs. Tbcso vary in color, being somotimcs bright blue, and pink, and yeilew, the skirt often bordered with a hem of some other color, often very gaudy ; but the dark skin harmonizes it all. Tbe most artistic to my mind is tho doop indigo blue, but it is more rare In tbo north west than in Southorn India, where almost all tbe lowor class women woar it. It is pleasant to watch the easy grace with which they walk, bearing round red earthenware or bright cop por water-jars on their heads, steady ing thoir bunion with ono well-shaped, smull-wrisiod.duBky arm streached up to it lull loanglhi and covered almost to the elbow, and Sometimes above it, with numbers of bracelets. Those are sometimes silver, but oflenor plated metal or rod and greet, lace. Their easy graco of motion is well worth copying. The pale-faced race may , perhaps pride itself on its superiority in tho oso of the contents of its bead, but those dusky daughters of the sun certainly outdo their moro favored sister in tbe use thoy make of '.be outside of thoirs. They carry every thing on their beads jars of water, baskets of vagctablen, peice of cloth huge bundles of sugar-cane, fuol, any thing, and everything, leaving their hands froo for any additional burden. They do not even carry their little black babies in their arms, but cither balaneo Lbom astride on thoir shoul der with Hieir Utile hands on tboir molher'a head, or else astride on one hip, encircled with one strong? arm.
