Lancaster Intelligencer.
Mixed in his Memery.
The venerable Cameren seems te have
been mistaken in supposing that he gave
Curtin his nomination for governor.
The fact turns out te have been quite
otherwise, and by the concurrent testi.
meny of Gov. Curtin, Cel.McClure, who
was the governor's right political bower,
and of everybody else who has a recollec
tion of the history of thai ancient time, it
seems te be well established that Simen
Cameren did all he could te defeat Cur
tin's nomination. It is quite remarkable
that the aged Winnebago's memory
should se far lead hi in astray. His sud
den revival te the manifestation of inter
est in political affairs, instead of being a
mark of mental strength and activity,
seems rather te be the result of waning
powers of mind. Mr. Cameren's faith
in Grant's popular strength is another
indication of mental weakness, but
as it is are that his son Donald also
claims te held it may perhaps be charged
te a hereditary disposition te see things
as it is pleasant te see them. It is a fail
ing plenty of people have, but it is net
often developed se strongly as just new
by Simen Cameren. .Ne doubt it is dis
agreeable te him te contemplate the fact
that he did net get a recommendation te
the presidency from the convention that
nominated Curtin for governor ; and the
only rational explanation that eccuis te
him is that he must have wanted it just
se 01 it never would have happened.
lie is evidently aft old man who is veiy
caieful about telling the exact truth as
he understands it. It is charged against
him that he says that he lent Curtin tlnee
thousand dellais for his canvass. Cur
tin says he did net. But he never said
that he had; his story was that he le
ferred Cuitin te his son Den, since lie
did net for particular reasons wish te
give him any money himself. lie de
clares that he does net knew what Den
did about it. Evidently, therefore, Den
never called en him for the money. This
narrative of the aged Simen bears about
it the ear-maiks of truth, in cverj thing
except the fact that Curtin applied te
him for a lean. That, of course, we
knew was net se, since they were net
friends. That is a trilling mistake, how
ever, excusable te one of Mr. Camci oil's
years. Ne doubt somebody applied for
a lean for political expenditure, and was
refened te Den: who 1 of erred him
te somebody else ; until finally he get the
money out of the fund stolen fei the
purpose fiem the people ; and the vener
able senator never knew that am body
had leceived money from any one fei
anything. He was innocent as a lamb
as he always has been. He is a deal
sweet old gentleman, whose heait has
always oveillewcd with chanty for ovciy evciy ovciy

Hard Luck.
The census supei viseishae haul luck.
Peer White in Philadelphia get together
Mich a let of jail-biids that it was neces
sary te cut off the heads of the whole
paitv,supei visor included. And new our
Snowden, alter coming amongst us and
looking into the chamctei of the ap
plicants, and vowing he was
going te cheese the best men, legardless
of their politics, has had such confound
edly bad luck as te see two of the
enumerators in this city sent te jail for
thirty days; a period, tee, which carries
them clear ever the time appointed for
taking the census.
What is te be done about it ? We can
only suggest an appeal te the most benevo
lent judge of our ceuit, who may be se
impressed by the impossibility of two offi
cers of the United States having done
anything worthy of thiity days in jail
especially w hen it was only their Re
publican 7cal that get them theic that
lie will let them out as innocent
and much maligned workers in
the geed cause in their waids.
At any late the judge should be
besought te let these two enumerators
out for a couple of hours in the cool of
the morning and evening te take the
census in the Third and Seventh waids.
They lie handy te the jail, te whose
shady letreats they might leturn te
spend the heat of the day, which ought
net te be spent en the streets anyway.
Thus the needs of the United States, the
demands of justice, and Iheiequirements
of lmmanitv may be satisfied.
Sutkuvisek Sxewdex will hae te
revise his list of census enumerators for
this city. Twe of the best weikers in
their lespective wards who were en his
list have been sent te jail for thirty
days for their complicity in the disoider diseider
ly and disgraceful proceedings which
marked the meeting of the Republican
return judges. It would net likely be
hard te prove that the gang of ruffians
who distuibed the proceedings of last
Monday in Fulton hall, and caused a riot
en the street, were hired by some of the
political bosses te de that sort of weik,
and while the severe but well-merited
punishment which the mayor lias in
flicted may teach their class a much
needed lessen, it will be a great pity if
the responsibility for their conduct be
net traced te its proper source and their
employers held te answer. . The " best
workers in the ward" have been encour
aged by past experience te believe that
they were abe e the law. Representa
tions of the value of their services en
election day have secured for them im
munity from punishment, and the court
has net called these te answer who de
ceived it into allowing a miscar
riage of justice. The mayor, who
expressed his inability te maintain peace
and order if these w he were turned ever
by him te the courts were te be thus
dealt with, new avails himself of his
power of summary committal te vindi
cate the broken law, and he mers the
thanks of the public for his resolute ef
forts. If the views of a Baltimore engineer

Swear Net it All.
Judge Pcishing, of Schuylkill county,
has just decided a case in his ceuit, which
presents some almost fei gotten features of
the law of this state, against sweating : A
man named Boshere was lined $1(!.08 fei
swearing twentv-feur times, being 07 cents
for each oath. The act of 17!)l,undcr which
the justice acted, provides that " if any
pei son of the age of sixteen years or up
watds shall piefanely cuisc or swear, by
the name of Ged. Jesus Christ or the Hely
Ghost, every person se offending, being
thereof convicted, shall feifcitaud pay the
sum of 07 cents for cveiy such ptefanc
curse or oath. v Te cm sc and
swear by any ether name or thing, is
liable te a fine of feity cents for each cuisc
The case was appealed te court, aud
owing te some infeimality, the ceuit was
compelled te rcvcise the pieccedings. The
main point of the decision, iu this case, is
its pithy conclusion. Judge Pcishing
says: "'The general prevalence of pie
fane swearing indicates that the statute
under which this defendant was convicted
had long been buiied out of sight. Per
haps its resurrection in this case may ac
cemplish some geed by showing these who
have no regaid for the law of Ged that
the law of the land imposes upon them
a penalty of fiem forty te sixty-seven
cents te be followed by imprisonment,
accompanied with a diet of bread and
water, en refusal te pay for each and

The closing meeting of the Star club
was held at the Yeung Men's Christian
association rooms last evening.
We prcseut the remarks of Mr.
J. P. McCaskey, showing what has
been done, presenting a brief descrip
tion of the constellations new above
the horizon m the early evening, and com
pleting the list with the last sigus of the
zodiac as originally proposed, thus mak
ing the circuit of the heav ens. He spoke
as fellows :
Three months have passed since our last
meeting, a longer intei val thau was antici
pated at the time that meeting was held.
Certain constellations then en the eastern
hoi izen at nine o'clock are new at that
hour upon the meiulian overhead. During
that time the Eat th has swept through one ene one
feuith of its mighty eibit about the Sun,
and, all unconscious of motion, we have
tiaveicd a distance in space of neaily one
hundred and fifty millions of miles.
As the great glehe has thus moved stead
ily- onward with frightful velocity its
l.idius vector passing ever equal space-, iu
equal times with the unfailing certainty of
arithmetic the angle of its axis with the
Sun's ray day by day, been constantly
decreasing for our northern hemisphere, se
that our star list, suspended amul the
snows and naked branches of Febtuary, is
resumed for same final work amid summer
heat, blooming llevvcrs, green fields and
luxuriant teliage of a May that seems twin
sister of July.
It has been the transition from wintei
te summer, but duiing that interval the
Star club has net been "inactive. The
Plant club has taken up, under the efficient
lead of Mr. Buriewes, another and most
piefitable branch of study. Without at
tempting te teach anything exhaustively,
much systematic weik has lieen done : a
niiniber of feimal papeis have been lead ;
there has been iustiuctien in the practical
analysis of plants ; and the leading fea
tures of this dclighthil science have been
se presented, that, while all of us have ac
quired mere or less knowledge thieugh at
tendance here, there are these who will
leek back te these evenings with gratifica
tion as among the most piefitable el their
lives, if it shall chance that here their in
terest in the study of plants and tiees was
for the fust time aroused, or at least given
practical direction.
In some measure, also, out of the live
interest felt in the weik of these classes,
there has gi own up, within these mouths
a society mere pcimancnt in character and
one winch pi onuses te be mere fai-ieach-iug
in its inllacnce than either Stir club
or Plaut club.
The purpose of this latter flourishing or
ganization is the study ei nature through
the aid of that wendeiful instru
ment, the Compound Microscope. Its his his
teiy is briefly this : A young man of Lan
caster, wide-awake and unci get ic with a
genuine desire for knowledge and a genius
ler haul weik while a medical student at
the University of Pennsylvania became
interested in the compound micioscepe,
and upon graduation In ought with him
from Philadelphia a fine insti anient ler
use in his professional studies.
The examination of objects by its aid
but fanned the flame of interest that had
been paitly aieused here ; and, at the sug
gestion of one of eui mini her, the Laneas
tur Scientific club, comprising, live mem
bers, was organized and is new a chattered
coipeiation. The puiposeuf this club was
the puichaseand fitting up of a suitable
room for use by the L'UKustia Micioscop Miciescop Micioscep
ieal society, which ha- since been oigan eigan
ied and is already in geed weikmg condi
tion. This society hail at its oigauizatien,
three mouths age, but seven iustimnents,
three of them belonging te individual mcm
beis. The number of high-grade niiscio niiscie niiscio
scepes already in hand or eideied is new
thirteen, with fair piespect of steady in
crease, as people leain te knew what a
seuice of unfailing interest and delight
this lntiument may become te any thought
ful man or woman.
Why has this work been done ? We are
net scientists: peihaps none of u ever
dream of such worthy distinction ; eeitain
ly net he who addresses you. We aie net
even specialists. But, as we have learned
te enjoy music and poetry, painting and
sculpture, literature, eloquence and the
dramatic ait se we are learning mere and
mere te enjoy the pcrleet weik of Ged in
nature. It matteis net whether these
wonders are discerned by the unaided
vision, or revealed by the telescope, or bv
the maivcleus lenses of the micioscepe
something of them we have learned, mere
we mean te kuew, and that while life shall
last. And it needs only that ethers about
us shall learn what enjoyment there is in
the use of the compound micioscepe te
grew as enthusiastic in admiration of it
as aie, even new, the members of out .Mi .Mi .Mi
croseopical society.
Se much for the intciregnuni of the Star
club. Let us tin n for a few minutes te the
weik of its closing session.
Among the piemiueut constellations
new visible at nine o'clock m the evening,
cast of the meridian overhead, we have,
beginning at the extreme net th and coming
south waul, Cepheus, whose two brightest
starsy Alderamin aud Alphiik, are neaily
en a straight line from Deneb, the head of
the Ci ess, te the North Stir; Cassiopeia,
which new shows " the chair," or the
straggling "W," low down in the north
eastern sky ; the head and gi eater p.irt of
the body of the Dragen, the tail of which
extends beyond the meridian, between the
two Dippeis ; the Swan, or Xeithein
Ciess, containing the blight star Deneb ;
the Haip, with its bright star Vega, which
may be readily identified by the regular
parallelogram of faint stars near it ; the
Eagle, neaily due east, identified by its
.straight line of three, the middle one
Altair being of the first magnitude; Hei
cules, whose feet is en the head of the
Dragen and his head near that of Ophi
uchus, known also as Serpcutai ius, some
forty degrees farther south these two
constellations, Hercules ami Ophiuchiis,
which includes the Serpent, occupying
neaily all the large pae.e between Boetes
en the west, the Dragen and the Haip en
the north, the Eagle and one or two un
important star gieups en the east, and the
Balances and Scoipieu en the south aud
These two last-named constellations are
the only ones of the zodiac that remain te
be given this evening in which individual
stais are identified by their names the
AicliLi, which fellows the Scoipieu, being
distinguished by the .Milk Dipper and the
Bew, none of it stars bearing names that
have been cm l entry adopted.
The leading star group-, te the west of
the meridian at 9 o'clock are as follews:
Auriga, whose bright star Capella is sink
ing in the exti erne northwest : the Little
Bear, which contains the little dipper, with
the Xeith star at the extremity
of the haudle ; the Twins, Caster
and Pollux, near the horizon : the Little
Deg, the bright star Procyen. just disap
pearing, Siiius, of the Great Deg, and all
the stars of Orien being w holly gene ; the
Crab, a faint group, but a constellation of
the zodiac, lying between the Twins and
the Lien ; the Lien itself, conspicuous for
the Sickle and the stars Zezma and Dcne Dcne
bela ; and the Virgin, next beyond, whose
bright star Spiea is nearly en the meri
dian. Continuing the zodiac thieugh the
Lien and the Virgin, we have again the
Balances and the head and heart of the
Scorpion before reaching the eastern heri-
xen. This entire constellation is .in view
shortly after 10 o'clock and by midnight
Sagittarius, the Archer, may also be seen
in this quarter of the heavens.
North from the Virgin towards the
Pelar star we hae Berenice's hair and
Cor Caroli, in the cellar of one of the
Hunting Dogs of Boetes, and net far from
the Great Dipper of Ursa Majer, a star
group knew te everybody. The head of
Hydra is a striking group of faint stars a
short distance west from the Crab. Car
rying the line of this constellation with its
smueus curves, in a direction south and
southeast, we pass the Cup and the Raven,
and, crossing the meridian overhead, again
reach the Balances, the Hydra being mere
man a Hundred degree.- in length.
Having new the "lay" of the various
star gieups above the horizon at the hour
of evening already named, we are prepared
te identify the four constellations with
which the work of the club will be ended.
Taking the Diamond of the Virgin"
which comprises. Cor Caroli te the neith.
Spiea te the south, Arctums east, and
Denebola west we fix the bright star
Spica. Southwest fiem this star, but net
far distant, we observe the constellation
of the Raven, an iriegulir quadrilateral of
stars, none of which aie above thiid mag
nitude. The star nearest Spiea. at the
upper angle te the east, it Algerab ; that
maiking the lower angle te the west i
Alclnba. Fitteen degrees west fiem the
Raven is the Cup, the brightest star of
which is Alkes. Algerab is nearly midway
betweeu Alkes and Spica. Beth the
Raven and the Cup rest upon Hydra,
which can readily be traced through
pait of the heavens.
The bright led star new iu the south
eastern sky is Antares, w hich maiksthe
he ut of the Scoipieu. If fiem this star
we extend lines te .Victuals and Spica. the
two laigest stais iu the Balances will be
cleaily indicated between said lines. That
faithest north is Zubenelg, fait lies t south
is Zubenescii, these stais occupying re
spectively the nei t hern and southern
scales. Seme eight degree northwest fiem
Antares is Grallias in the direction of
Arctuius. It may be lecegni.ed by com
paring it with another star equally distant
fiem Antares in the opposite direction,
also by a faint star one degiee distant ti
the northeast, or by two ether stais fei in
inga slight cuivc with it at a distance of
three degiees fiem each ether. In the ex
tremity of the tail, nineteen degrees south
fiein Aut.ues, is Lesath. The tail of the
Scoipieu is a beautiful cuive of stais end
ing in a pair, the brightest of which is
Te recapitulate, completing our Star
club list for the ciiiieut e.ti, we have :
Xe. 118, Algerab, and Xe. 119 Alclnba. in
the Raven ; 120. AlkeN in the Cup; 121,
Zubenelg. anil 122, Zubeiiesch. in the Bal
ances ; 12e, Ciatlias, in the head, 121, Lc
sath, in the tail, and 12, Autaies, the
heart of the Scoipien.
Our weik is done. At the outset it was
our purpose te confine the list te one bun
dled stais, but that number was readied
se readily that it seemed best te extend
it te one hundred and twenty-live. i
began with Arctuius; we end with An
tares. Between these names, as
they stand upon out list, geed
papers ou special topics have been
lead, and there has been no little scan
ning of the heavens for stars and constella
tions. Prem Xe. 1 te Xe. 125 they bound

Dedication or the Catholic Chapel lllsrellit lllsrellit
neetiH Item.
Hereafter Thursday, May 2(, will be
memorable te the members of St. Mary's
Catholic chapel, of Mount Jey. net only
because of the feast in honor of the Blessed
Sacrament, which eccuis en that day, but
fiem the fact that for them has been dedi
cated a chapel iu which te worship. On
this mission yesterday's mail train, Ne. 1,
due here shortly before neon, brought
from Lancaster Fathers Kaul and Chi ist,
of St. Antheny's chinch ; Gretemyer, of
St. Jeseph's, and Fein, of Elizabethtown,
vvhoweie accompanied by some eighty
persons of Lancaster. On their arrival the
reverend gentlemen weie driven te the
chapel, en X'ew Haven stieet, where after
alighting they moved iu precession with
attendants, aieuud the edifice, Father
Gietcmyer sprinkling the holy water as
they advanced. The eiicle com
pleted, they piececded te the
sacristy, and shortly the clripcl was com
fortably filled, while here and there groups
of men and women sought the shade at
various points aleug the street. Several
hundred persons were present, and thi
number would have been doubled if
the citizens had known the hour when the
exercises were te take place. Many were
en their way te attend when the ceremo
nies were ended. We understand that high
mass should have been celebrated by Rt.
Rev. Bishop Shauahan, of the diocese of
Hariisburg, but he being au attendant at
the parochial council assembled at Phila
delphia, Father Christ was celebrant. He,
attired in the prescribed vestments, with
deacon and sub-deacon proceeded from the
sacristy te the altar, which was piefusely
decked with beauti I ill flowers. Above it
were suspended eveigreens, and en it
binned numcieus candles, the glare of
which, en the bright hues of the flowers
and these of the vestments, was pleasing.
St. Authony's choir sweetly chanted the
responses.ef the mass, with instiumental
accompaniment, Miss Louisa Decker,
organist. Father Fein preached the ser
mon, iu which he briefly reviewed the his
tory of the church, pictuied the training
of Jesus Christ by St. Mary, with illustra
tion replete with thought and words of
Divine inspiration. In a few remaiks in
German Father Kaul congratulated the
members en the result of their efibrs iu the
past year, commended their course, and
concluded with several announcements,
and at half-past one the ceremonies weie
concluded, with ample time te return en
the 2:1)7 train.
On next Wednesday afternoon at 3
o'clock confessional services will be held ;
in the evening preaching in German and
English ; high mass en Thursday morning
at 8' clock ; pastor in charge of the chapel,
Father Kaul. A description of the chapel
