The Flight or the Fleas.
That political flea, Senater Hill, of
Georgia, since the election manifests his
custninstry inclination te leap wildiy
about in search of a fresh political perch.
The senator has been fastened down un
usually long en Democratic ground, by
the force of circumstances, but it would
have been very surprising if he had been
found disposed te withstand thebuffeting
of the recent storm. He is en the jump
new and is very likely te get down out
side the Democratic party, along with
Mahone, a free-booting politician with
much mum method in his madness.
Hill is troubled just new with the solid
Seuth and solid North phase of our poli
tics, and thinks the country is surely
ruined if it continues. He proposes te
amend the situation -by abolishing the
Democratic party which is hated by the
solid North and the Republican party
which is in like disfavor with the solid
Seuth. This manifestation of political
wisdom he makes hi a letter te Congress
man Chittenden, 1'epublican, of Brook
lyn, te whom he writes te express
his great regret that he has been
defeated for re-election. Evident
ly Mr. Hill's party ties sit light
ly en him; net only because he
has stomach te sympathize with a de
feated Republican, but because he is
se ready te whistle down the wind the
party which has placed him in theen.
site te represent it. It would occur te
any m:iu of ordinary sense and percep
tion of the fitness of things that
it would be becoming- in him te
hear from his constituents as te
whether they have suffered a change of
political views before he announces ills
readiness te tomahawk their party. Mr.
Hill does net seem te be troubled with
any such thought of duty te his party.
He feels like a free lance who is com
missioned te thrust his steel into the
body of a friend or fee as seemeth geed
te liini. And maybe he has this right ;
but hardly while he is a Democratic
senator. If he would be thus free he
should resign. Then he may propose
what radical remedies he pleases for the
political evils he see-s ; but until then he
should de his work with the Democratic
party and net ever its dead body.
Mr. Hill, besides being a traitor, may
safely b denominated a feel. The felly
of asking the dishandmcnl of the Re
publican pail which has just renewed
its lease of power, is instantly conspicu
ous, hut it i ; hardly mere se than the
same suggestion as te the Democratic
party, which has obtained an equal share
of the popular vote, which has in every
state in the Union a strong following,
reaching in all the great Northern states
very dose te one-half of the vote, which
has failed te elect its president by the
narrowest possible chance, and which
holds the control of Congress. A parly
se strong in the North and with such a
solid held upon the Seuth is net likely te
commit hari kari at the advice of such
wild political leapers as Senater Hill.
Ne doubt, at the commencement of
another four years' term of wandering
in the wilderness, if will lese many Hills
and Mahones and that sort of light and
mercenary trash. It is quite possible that
the efforts of the Republican administra
tion, if se directed, may erect a Repub
lican party in the Seuth, that will find
plenty of officers in men who will
be easily tempted out of the
Democratic party. The Republican
parly had the opportunity at the
close of the war te get the solid control
of the Seuth, but it had net the needed
sagacity. It chose ie forcibly establish
itself by the aid of the carpet-bag gov
ernments and th' negrees rather than by
conciliating the people who held the
sovereign power of the states and who
were bound te exercise it as seen as
their autonomy was re-established. That
came in the course of a few years and
then the Republican parly went out, be
cause it had net shown itself friendly te
the ruling people. That mistake
it is tee late new te remedy,
but ii is stiil in the choice of the Republi
cans te use the patronage and power they
have again wen ie build up their party
in the Seuth ten condition in which it
may threaten Democratic supremacy in
some of the stales. It has a geed nucle
us in Virginia, where it already has
been in alliance with Mahone. There is
hardly a doubt that this alliance will
continue and that Mahone will act with
the administration in the Senate. He can
be had if his price is paid, and in the
close stale of thai body he is worth any
price he may ask. Senater Hill seems te
be ready te aid the work in Georgia, and
though he is net a free-boeter like Ma
hone. the value of his vote in the Senate
and his natural disposition te go off at a
tangent may very possibly make him
the apostle of the new dispensation.
Tennessee lias already a strong Republi
can body of a hundred thousand voters,
and there is a chance that they may
even get Maynard, their Moses, into the
United States Senate. Se there is an ex
cellent showing for a Republican party
There is certainly none for the disinte
gration of either of the great existing
parties. The sloughing off which the
Democratic party will suffer in the Seuth
will benefit rather than injure it. It is a
great advantage te a party, as well as te
the people, te have a powerful opposition
te contend with in the nation, the stale,
the county and the oily. "We will wel
come the growth of a second party in the
Seuth : and it is bound te come whether
welcomed or net. The Seuth is certain
te make great strides in population and
industry, new that her political condi
tion is settled and her people are per
mitted .te give their attention te the
development of her- magnificent re
sources. We should be leth te lese
any Democratic stale from the solid
Southern band. It is a matter of the
greatest congratulation te the Demo
cratic party that it holds the Seuth solid,
and v,e earnestly hope that it will ever
be se. We would net surrender one
state of these which have been thrown
into our arms by our tolerance and Re
publican prescription. But we would
l2 glad te see our party steadied and
restrained in the presence of a Republi
can opposition, knowing hew geed this
is for ever' interest.
The Xcvc Era proposes te enter into
a crusade against the practices of illegal
fee taking in court house row,en the part
of some of these whom it helped into
office in the name of reform. We bid it
god-speed in the geed work, te the up
rooting of practices that are demoral
izing te the officials and oppressive te the
public. At the same time we beg te re
mind the JVcic Era's editor that he has
thus far failed te lend his prom
ised co-operation te the Ixtelli
gen'CEr's attempt in this direction some
years age. It will be remembered that
when we charged Mayer Stauffer who
had served his time and gained his ex
perience in the prothenotary's office
with taking illegal fees, the editor of
the Xeu: Era guaranteed, if we recollect
aright, that if this could be demonstra
ted he would insist en the mis-taken
money being refunded. Meanwhile he
goaded the accused into bringing a.crim
inal suit for. libel against the publishers
of the Ixtelligexceji. They met it
with the demand for a prompt prelimi
nary investigation of all the facts and,
despite the prosecutor's obstructions,
enough was developed te show that our
charge was well founded and could be
abundantly sustained. The prosecution
was sneakingly abandoned behind our
backs and has never since been heard of
neither has the money that was un
lawfully taken.
"While the Xac Era is fumigating its
old friends en the illegal fee business we
trust this case will net be overlooked.
The fervor which certain Democratic
journals show in blaming Jehn Kelly for
the result in New Yerk, and their unan
imity at the same time in denouncing
any attempt te show that the vote of the
state was fraudulent, is very remarkable
indeed. If we lest New Yerk by fraud,
certainly Democrats who charge that
fraud en Kelly should desire te have it in
quired into,and they should rejoice if the
result should be te prove that Republi
cans rather than Democrats were the
guilty parties. Why then de they op
pose investigation while they denounce
Kelly ? Can it be that ihey are content
with Garfield's election and find a balm
for it in their hope te break down Tam
many ? De they hate Kelly mere than
they love their party 1J

The national Lincoln monument associa

will be reorganized the coining winter.
The plan of the monument is an extensive
one. The main structure will be of granite

The first one, which is of Secretary Chase,
has just, been -cast at the bronze foundry
of Clark Mills, the sculptor. There are te

distinguished in various positions during
the war; commemorative and typical
statues ; and the figure of President Liu Liu

Dn. Jenx W. Kexxiex, formerly a
journalist iu the city of Brooklyn, has
been engaged for the past five years iu
preaching te the neglected and outcast
population of New Yerk, en the public
streets, in the hepitals, and wherever else
he could get an audience. The results
have been very satisfactory. Large crowds
gathered te hear the lay preacher, and
many were led te a better course of life.
His success is largely due te the common
sense method of his work. In his efforts
te reclaim the drunkard lie seen found
that something mere was necessary than
the mere advice te him net te drink. If
he must net take whisky he must have
something else, and Dr. Kennion gives
him 'geed warm coffee and nice fresh
bread. These arc borne en a cart made
expressly for the purpose, and are served
out te all that come. The cups are net the
common tin vessels, but nice porcelain -ware,
and the peer creatures are delighted
te drink from them. Feed and raiment
are supplied te the needy and very fre

Strange infatuation of a Wealthy Farmer's
Adopted Daughter.
An open wagon drew up before a Kings Kings
eon (N. Y.,) furniture store en Monday
afternoon, and its two occupants alighted.
One was a white woman, geed looking and
quite young. She was well dressed, and
evidently had moved in respectable circles.
Jler companion was a negre man of coal
tar complexion and countenance amazingly
devoid of every suspicion of intellectual
brightness. The couple entered the stefe
together, and when the dealer came for
ward the colored man remarked :
" My wife wants some furniture."
"Allriaht: in a minute. Just ict me
attend te this lady
was tin
chant' s response.
"Well, this here's her, it is,
the customer.
The merchant was surprised, but the
yenng woman promptly said that she was
the negre's wife. They purchased some
articles of household furniture, and left
town together.
Jehn Deye is one of the wealthiest farm
ers iu the town of Gardiner. His farm is
near the village of New Paltz, en the Wall
kill Yallcy railroad. The Deye family is
one of the largest in Ulster county. It is
also one of the most respected and influ
ential, aud Jehn Deye's reputation has
ever been of the best. He has never been
blessed with children of his own, and it
was a genuine act of love that induced him
mere tliau a dozen years age te adept an
orphan niece. The wee mite of a girl took
his name, and was reared as tenderly as he
would have raised his own child. Every
advantage that social position and cash
could secure were hers and at the age of
eighteen Ada Deye became an acknowl
edged belle far beyond the limits of her
immediate neighborhood. The negre, Jehn
Wesley Sampson, was employed en Mr.
Deye's farm. Wesley's duties were chief
ly confined te a superintendence of the
half hundred cattle ou the place.
Until quite recently Ada Deye Had been
receiving the address of a young farmer of
New Paltz. and it was generally believed
that she had premised te become his wife.
Says Jehn Deye : " Rufus was a likely lad.
She could have married him and had my
blessing. lie is sober and industrious,
and will get along all right. I would have
done the square thing by them " But in
October Rufus ceased te visit Ada, she
representing that they had "had a little
quarrel." About this time the uncle's
suspicions acre aroused, and he decided
upon prompt action.
"Yeu will pack up your clothes and go
down te New Yerk with me te-morrow,"
he said in a firm tone. "I am going te
place you in a bearding school.
She declared no opposition, but when he
arose next morning it was te find that the
wayward girl had tied in the night time,
and with her was gene Jehn Wesley Samp
son. Pursuit was made without effect.
The couple went te Readout. A minister
was called upon.
"We want te get married, "' hastily ex
plained Sampson.
"Get married?''
"Yes, quick; de it up right away, fur
we're in a awful hurry."
"Is this your desire?" tins preacher
asked the girl.
" Yes," the answered.
" I can't accommodate you,
said the
minister. " New, don't you think you are
doing an ill-advised and "
"New, never mind yer sermon, boss.
Will ye marry us, or won't you? That's
what we are a wanlin' te knew."
"I will net. That girl is net of age. The
marriage would be illegal."
The preacher was about te attempt te
persuade Miss Deye te abandon her pur
pose, but before he could proceed the deer
slammed in his face and the ceuple were
in the street. Other ministers iu Rondout
and Kingsten, in fact, nearly all in the
city, were visited, with the same result.
Frem Kingsten the couple went te the
office of. "Squire Hecter Abecl, an old
politician and justice of the peace of Mar Mar
blctewn. It appears that they did net
long remain iu the presence of that gen
tleman, however, for as seen as the negre
made known his business 'Squire Hecter
ordered him out of his eilice.
Sampson then went te a friend named
Jim Cantinc, in the wilds of the town of
Marbletown. Cantinc is a negre as black
and full blooded as any that ever breathed,
but his better half is white. Moreover,
Mrs. Cantinc is red-haired and quick-witted.
A half dozen or mere mulatto chil
dren have resulted from her union with
Jim Cautine, and these gathered about
and applauded their mother's labors as she
having declared that she would "fix
things," proceeded te burn all the corks
found in the Cautine mansion. Ada Deye
sat down, and Mrs. Cantinc completely
disguised the girl's fair face and hands by
smearing them with burnt cork. Her hair
was put up in a net, and thus changed in
appearance. Ada Deye again started en a
journey with Sampson. This time they
went te the Reformed parsonage at Stene
Ridge, and the Rev. Dr. Hulburt was
asked te make them man and wife. Net
suspecting that the girl was net a ncgress,
the preacher married them.
Next day Sampson took his wife te her
new home in Lapala. Lapala consists of a
colony of negrees, aud ail of its surround
ings are low and debased. The Sampson
home is a hut ; it would be a great mis
nemer te call it aught else. It is little su
perior te the average Lapala habitation,
where scores of families havc no doers te
their rude homes save a hole near the
ground, through which only arc ingress
and egress possible,
A gentleman from New Paltz, a friend
of Jehn Deye, was seen yesterday by a
Sun reporter. He said that Mr. Deye was
uncommunicative as te his plans ; "but,"
added the gentleman, " it is very plain
that Jehn is all broken down by the action
of Ada. He tries te hide his grief, but he
fails. He fairly worshiped that girl, and
of course he can't give her up te such
a fate without a struggle."
" Will he take any action looking te her
separation from Sampson '."'
" I don't knew ; but I de knew that a
Deye is desperate when he gets excited."
There is a story current te the effect that
a Kingsten lawyer has prepared a legal
document, which is te be served en the
negre and his wife, making them defend
ants in a civil suit, which, if decided against
them, will subject them te a pecuniary
penalty which their means would prevent
them paying, aud open the jail as an alter
native. It is also alleged, seemingly upon
geed authority, that a warrant is out for
Sampson's arrest, charging him with hav
ing betrayed the girl.
In the mean time Sampson does net
icem te fear any legal proceedings. On
Monday he procured an attachment for
personal property belonging te his wife,
left behind in the haste of their flight. He
has also placed iu the hands of a lawyer
for collection a claim against Jeliu Deye
for 20, money which he says was placed
in Deye's keeping by Ada. This 820 will
be Mrs. Sampson's only dower. She has
net a penny in her own right, but by her
marriage she has sacrificed fully $30,000.
An aged colored woman who has work
ed for the Deye family for twoscerc years
or mere walked all the way from Gardiner
te Lapala te sec her " baby," as she affec
tienately calls the recently married young
woman. Finding Ada alone she pleaded
earnestly with her te return te her home
and give up her " scandalous shame."
She told Ada that sin would be welcomed
back, and dwelt long and fervently upon
the wreiiij life she had entered upon. Ada
cried bitterly.but protested that what was
done was final ; that she should net leave
Sampson, whom she loved. She asked
many questieus about her nncle,and seem
ed entirely broken-spirited, but rejected
every overture looking te a change in her

the eldest unmarried infanta te go te Yi

youngest te Bavaria. The Due de Mont Ment
pensier would accept her as a daughter-in-law
with a smaller dowry than the Bava
rian prince requires : but he is still mis
trusted, as ambitious te obtain the throne
for his branch of the royal -family. In
the Gazette the Infanta "isabcllc is no

will net take any step te dispossess
the Infanta Isabella. Ou the day of the
presentation of the royal babe at the
Atocha there was a het dispute at the
palace between the queen and her eldest
sister-in-law en the subject of the title and
the pension. Queen Christina wanted the
baby te be taken as Princess of Asturias,te
the feet of Nestsa Scnera, and said that if
she was net, she should go without her

neither the Infanta Isabella, te who.-e

ed for the sixth time, the small bag con
taining the powder burst. It was thou
agreed te put iu another lead, with
out removing the first. This was done
and the gun' was touched oft. When it
was discharged it burst and pieces of it
were thrown iu dilie.vnt directions. Jeseph
Tayler and Jehn Aument, two men, were
standing together in the read about thirty
yaids from the gun when it exploded. A
piece of the gun about three feet long
struck both of, them at the same time,
crushing their heads. Tayler died in a

A. R. Stcmy, of Rohrcrstewn. icad a
paper en " Scheel Discipline." Describ
ing the many obstacles iu the path of the
teacher, he encouraged them by declaring
that if they brought patience, wisdom,
judgment, firmness, amiability, courage,
gentleness, moral force and geed example
into the work ; bestowed praise and blame
with justice and discrimination : bestowed
rewards and punishment with impartiality,
and above all, held the pupils under a firm
out mild subordination, a sullicieut degree
of discipline could be attained and upheld
even among the most umuly schools.
Prof. Shaub and Prof, -Vines diseus.-ed
the subject briefly and 3L-s. Archer gave
her views at some Iengt ii. She aid no set
inlcs of discipline could be prescribed be
cause no two pupils, no two schools, no
two teachers, are alike. The teacher matt
have an inborn intuition ei" the character
of the pupils, and treat them accordingly.
The proper method of disciplining one may
I be improper for another, it is found that
these children who arc wer-bred at home,
who are taught obedience and respect for
their parents, cause but little trouble in
school. The trouble conies from J host"
children who arc cither neglected or
petted and spoiled by their parents. Where
parents can be induced te co-operate with
teachers, difficulties in discipline can be
easily overcome. When they will net co
operate but upheld their disobedient child
in his insubordination aud unruly conduct,
the pupil should be removed from the
school te prevent him fieni demoralizing
ethers. Whether the parents de or de net
co-operate 'with the teacher, the latter
must go into the school resolved ieb mas
ter or mistress of it.
Mr. Hart, of Caernarvon, had some
years age been placed, in charge of
a school, iu which ther." were big
boys who were determined te havc their
own way, both inside and outside the
schoolroom, lie had subdued their mis-
behavior by depriving them of tin usual
recess, whenever they misbehaved iu the
play ground.
IiK.i':: i-irix.
" What shall be done with girl aged
from 12 te !(' years who will peisit in
giggling?" This question was referred
for answer te Mr. Zechcr, of IVquca. II.'
said that his plan was te remove the gig
glcr from her scat and place htr in some
ether part of the school room, and keep
her there all day. Ii she went back te her
seat next morning without permission he
again removed her. If en the ether hand
she seemed te be repentant and premised
better behavior, he 'made a contract"
with her, restoring her te her seat en con
dition that she diil net again offend.
Mrs. Archer, of Lit it z, s-aid heriliscipliue
in such cases was te put the offender te
work at the blackboard, ivir,! her a task
te accomplish in a given time.
.Mr. Ivrehler, of West llemplielii, thought
if there occurred something that provoked
the giggling, the .better way was te giggle
along with the girls and have it out. It it
luccurreii tee elten he would umj such
means as present'd thcmsulvi's at the
time te .suppress it. The discipline effect
ive with ene pupil will net de ter all. He
had cured a giggling boy once by catching
him by the nape of this neck and the seat
ofthe breeches and chucking him under
a bench ; but this heieic kind of treat
ment wouldn't de for girls. A Dutchman
who was supposed te be dying with ty
pheid fever ate a mess of sour I: rout and
get well, the doctor applied the same rem
edy te an Englishman and killed him.
Prof. Shaub suggested that teachers
and dirccleis or the rural distticls should
agree upon inlcs for the government of
their scnoels substantially ofthe cliiuac
ter of the:-e in force in the city and larger
boroughs. These rules prescribe the con
ilittens in which pupils enter the schools,
may remain in them or be suspended or
expelled from them. They define also the
duties and powers of the teacher. The
adoption and enforcement of similar lilies
in the country districts would pi event
much annoyance te teachers and ni:-ui:
dcrstanding en the part of parents.
Oucstiieis and Ansi.irs.
Dr. Shumakcr answered the question,
' What would you de with pupils who
leave school and go home at rccc-s '.'' by
saying that he would deprive them of
twice as much time as they hud lns-t in this
way, by keeping them in during. following
recesses. Te the qmstieu: "What
would you de with pupils, eight or ten
years old. who persist in neglecting their
lessens '.'"' he said he would make a record
ofthe missed lessens ami after tiie neglect
had continued for some time he would in
form the pupil that such neglect or refusal
te study must cease, that one mere trial
would be given, and if it was net improv
ed the bad record would be sent te the
parents or directors.
Prof. Shaub made an appeal te directors
te protect teachers fiem Jhe insults
thrown upon them by ignorant and vicious
parents. He had seen a numberei letters
some of them wiitten by women and
addressed te respectable teachers contain
ing the most insulting a$id vulgarepithets.
He suggested the adoption of a rule by
school beards that if any parent or guar
dian shall insult the teacher in the school
room or send te 1 he teacher an insulting
letter, the children of such patent or the
wards of such guaidian shall leithwitlt
forfeit their right te seats iu the school.
Mr. Patteu hoped dirccteis would give
