f unite & Brown,
There is in Philadelphia, a clothing house which has no double in all the
world. The world is full of clothing houses ; and it is a geed deal te say that
one is unlike all the rest.
Fiibt, in its dealing ; and it is sin-prising that one house should differ
much from another. Selling clothing is se simple a matter, that it is likely,
one would suppose, te be done in very much the eame way in Philadelphia,
New Yerk and Londen. But Philadelphia is ahead ; and, curiously enough,
one house in Philadelphia is ahead of all the rest.
Te be ahead in dealing is te deal en a higher plane, in a mere liberal
wr.jyte five the buyer mera well founded confidence without less of the mer
chant's safety. This Philadelphia clothing house says te a stranger : "Wc
want te deal -.villi exact justice. We want what belongs te us, viz., a fair
profit ; and wc want you te have what belongs te you, viz., :i liberal money's
worth. Our way te arrive at this result is te mark a price en everything we
sell, which price i.; absolute ; and te let you buy what you like, go away and
think the bargaii. ever, and come and trade back, if you want te. We find by
experience that this liberality is harmless te us. Of course, yea like it. And
it makes quick and i eady dealing. We don't want you te biing back what
j-eu buy it would cot us money every time ; but wc would rather you would
brfitf back than keep, what you don't like. Se, wc try te see that you get
at first what you will like the better the mere you knew of it. This is really
the whole philosophy of our dealings." Is it any wonder that no ether clothing
house in this city, or Xcw Yerk, or Londen, deals in the same way ?
Second, in its goods the amount and variety of thorn. There are ether
houses where excellent clothing is kept, and a great deal of it ; but thcre is
none, anywheic. that keeps se much. The dealing related above has wen the
largest trade the world has yet seen. Te supply such a trade great quantity
and variety of clothing are required ; and the hi turn increase the trade, bc-tsiu.-e
everybody likes te cheese out of many things, rather than out of few.
This is the country of ready-made clothing. Great Britain makes the
most of any European country ; but there is net in all Londen any clothing
business a quarter as large as that of Oak Hall. New Yerk has several large
clothing businesses ; but no one nearly equal te that of Oak Hail ; Bosten
Loek back twenty years ! Have we done you geed service, or net? But
that is net what we had in mind ; we were thinking of the clothes you are go
ing te buy te-day. Shall we sell them?

The past rises Leforc rac like a dream,
and I eco the peaceful shores of America
drenched iu innocent bleed. I see Colum
bia's noblest eon mangled and dead upon
the plains of New England. I see the
bleed of my forefathers crimson the
sticamlets of Pennsylvania, as they flew
unsullied te the sea. I see the gallant
youths and brave sires of 1770 unfurl the
banner of freedom, fight and conquer in
the great struggle for independence.
Net from a love of conquest, net te
gather trophies from a thousand battle
fields, net te leceive titles of proud dis
tinction and be called the honored ances
tors of future generations such was net
the motive that impelled the noble heroes
of :i century age te meet their fee en the
field of battle, nor was it the v.cbht of
actual oppression, the cruel treatment of
infamous tyrant, the disturber of national
and individual peace, that aroused young
America te defend her hallowed eiI.
It was the grand principle of right, the'
sacred duty of iesisting the exercise of
unauthorized power, the principle of free
dom, the highest gift te man, the principle
for which Hampden bled.
There arc instances in the history of the
world where men, women and children arc
driven te defense by the iron hand of cruel
dcspotism.Witheutahome, without refuge,
without a sacred altar, they fearlessly rush
te the cannon's mouth, and surrender their
lives te the unrelenting enemy. This may
be called suicide in despair.
Hew different the scene, hew unlike the
incentive, which aroused the patriotism of
our forefathers aud led them en te vic
They were men who beheld the ghastly
feim of tyranny in every oppressive law,
who in the darkest hour were willing te
quell the wrong at the expense of their
own fortunes and bloodshed, who were
icady at all times te exclaim with the ora
tor of Virginia, Give me liberty or give me
death. Upen these principles they fought,
upon these principles they died upon these
principles they conquered.
The battle is o'er, the victory is wen,
right has gained the ascendency ever
wrong, and a people before subject te the
rule of unjust sovereignty arc rejoicing un
der the bleed-stained banner of freedom,
swell the anthems of liberty from New
England te Georgia, and make the unsettled
wilderness re-echo the joyful sound te the
prairies of the West.
But can we forget the dead, the honored
dead ? They r.lccp in the land they made
" Beneath the rugged alms tiie yew tree's
Where heaves the turf of many a meuldering
Each in lii-. narrow cell forever laid,
The brave forefathers et this country bleep."
They sleep beneath the proudest monu
ment of republics, the tranquil column of
liberty. They sleep at Lexington and
Bunker Hill, Saratoga and Yorktown, un
conscious alike of the laurels around their
hallowed brews aud the sublime achieve
ments for which they voluntarily shed
their life bleed.
They arc dead. Their bones lie mould meuld
ering in the soil of the federal states, but
iuthe hearts of their countrymen they
live honored and cherished as the dearest
offerings upon the altar of memory.
Standing by the cradle of this grand re
public's birth, it is a sad sccne te sec the
infant sprinkled with its parent's bleed.
It is a sad scene te sec the sun shine upon
heaps of slain, aud fertile plains streaming
with innocent gore. Yen, it is sad te
think that the home of our forefathers
could only lie made happy and free by
bloodshed, that the peace of a nation
could only be secured upon the
battlcficldj'and that the foundation of a
republic in such a glorious land could only
be laid by the aid of the cannon and mus
ket. However, when this country was
come into existence, when this bread con
tinent which lay outstretched in shaggy
wildncss from the stormy Atlantic te the
golden waves of the Pacific with only a
few hamlets that chanced te nestle along
its beach, was te become the terminus of
the world's progress when mankind was
te be raised upon a higher piano of human
development, and America was chosen te
be the chief actor in the most sublime
drama in history, she, like Fraucc and
England, Belgium aud Germany, could
net retire from the stage victorious with
out struggling with the tide of severe op
position. One hundred years have passed
away. As "many golden harvests have
yielded te the peaceful sickle and given te
this people its increase, and during this
brief period of time the patriotic spirit
which permeates the veins of every true
American, the energy of a free people, the
moral dignity and the fear of an overrul
ing Providence, have made the "laud of
the ficc and the home of the brave" the
proudest monument of republics, the coli
seum of the world's progress.
There was a time when Greece and
Reme were the intellectual centres
of the world. When the star of
empire was twinkling amid the cheer
less gloom of barbarism, pouring its ef
fulgent beams upon the domes and tem
pics of Reman and Grecian architecture,
and apparently seeming te have ended
its course through tnc heavens, it
steed there for awhile. Its brilliancy
increased as the years rolled en. The
vault of heaven seemed te widen ever the
prospect in one eternal sunshine.
Reme is no lensrcr the mistress of the
world. . Greece is no longer the home of
the philosopher and the poet. Their for
mer splendor and glory have vanished. The
sceptre has passed away from their domin
ions. "The cloud-clapped towers " of
Reme have crumbled and lie mingled with
the 'dust of it3 former greatness. The
"gorgeous palaces" aud proud temples of
Greece have gene te decay amid the ruins
of its former .splendor. Even the star of
freedom and empire that once shone upon
their grandeur and magnificence has lied
away te some ether clime, and while its
shadow falls upon thn ignoble ruins of
once glorious, it twinkles with increasing
brilliancy and lustre iu the western
heavens, pouring its effulgent rays with
cqnal splendor upon the lowest hamlet
that nestles amid geld mines of California
and the gilded domes that swell from the
proudest cdifice of New England. "Well
has the poet caid :
Wcstwaid the course of empire takes it way,
The nrst four acts already passed :
The fifth shall close the drama with the day.
Time's noblest offspring is the lat.
Loek ever this country te-day prouder,
nobler and grander than any ether. The
majestic arch of liberty spaus ever its walls
from Plymouth Reck te the Gelden Gate.
There is "Washington ! The proudest
capital of republics. It towers above the
magnificence of ether lands and ether
powers, and makes the valley of the Po
tomac the pride and glory of the world.
There are our colleges from Bowdwin
of Maine te the University of Alabama,
placing our sous and our daughters, tee,
among the most polished et the human
race ; nor can I pass ever iu silence the
still and powerful influence which is wield
ed by the lefty teachings which you and I
rcceive in the classic halls of this institu
tion, Franklin and Marshall, and. which,
through its various agencies gives a loftier
impulse te thought, aud contributes a
Hberal share te develop the thinking of the
age. Our public school system stands out
a model before rthe world, and which all
would de well te imitate. The lad of lux
ury and the child of misfortune walk side
by side in the path that leads te knowl
edge and truth, te honor and glory. There
is our individual and national prosperity in
which the rich and peer can sinile with
one accord. Our material resources arc
great from the pine-clad lulls of Maine te
the orange groves of Flerida : from the
rich ores of Pennsylvania te the Elderado
But above all, the principle of honor, in
tegrity and equal rights te all men which
actuates the American people has done

and humauity than all the wealth of its
ores or the fertility of it." soil.
There is one characteristic of this glori
ous republic, which constituting as it
docs its living principle, proud distinction
and crowning glory, can net be passed ever
in silence. It is this, that our government
is net only composed of one clement or a
distinct nationality, but of representatives
of almost every nation in the world which
constitute us one people. AVhen in the
early history of our country the shores of
the Seuth, blooming with wild flowers of
sweet perfume, became known te the
East, the haughty Spaniard stepped upon
its soil, and with the presumption of a
Balboa declared that the sea and all the
land it might touch should belong te the
crown of Spain forever. England, with
her accustomed boldness, when first she
beheld, claimed the possession of the At
lantic coast from Maine te Georgia.
France also was eager te extend her do
minion and claimed as her share the terri
tory from Maine te Louisiana. European
powers, the Spaniards, the French, the
Dutch aud the English, visited the Ameri
can shores and finding them laden with fruit
of success aud power were eager each te
sway his own sceptre "in the howling wil
derness. Impelled by ambition, aroused
by sectional jealousy and hatred, the pas
sion for superiority, triumph and power,
amid the wealth el'Ameiica, the granite
and plains of New England, the slumber
ing fertility of Pennsylvania, the material
resources of this bread plain, they all
were eager te wander and enrich them
selves. They lest sight of the sublime mission
which Amciica, through their own in
strumentality, was cheacn te perform te
spread the grand piinciple of philanthro
py, difi'ttse throughout the world knowl
edge, arts, comforts, civilization, religion
and liberty, and promote the welfare of
all nations under the sun without sec
tional jealousy and prejudice.
Strange it seems, and yet sublime, that
in the progress of human events one sin
gle race or tiibe did net take possession of
these hills and valleys and establish a
monarchical government according te their
own ideas. Ah ! America was destined te
occupy a higher position in the advance
ment of human development, It washer
mission te snatch from the brews of a se
lect aristocracy the crown of glory and
place it upon the heads of the multitude.
She first recognized the importance of a
strong central government dependent upon
the strength of the individual, neither
stale rights nor centralization. It is net
enough for a country te possess a select
class of educated and cultivated men and
assign them the supreme power and con
trol, for the nation consists of the many
and net the few, and where the people
arc net possessed with certain individual
rights, there you sec a degraded com
munity sunk in ignorance. Ever though
science and power be ledged in the besom
of its aristocracy, America bears such a
relation te the dcvelepcmeut of mankind
that this lefty inllut'iice is penctiating
even the besom of the world's general life.
Te perform this sublime office a govern
ment net only of a select tribe, but of all
races, was necessary. Consequently in the
cenrsc of human events descendants from
the royal bleed of EngLiml, sturdy sons
from the fertile regions alens the Rhine,
the brave from the vhie-clad hills of their
delightful France, uuitcd by the direction
of Providence harmoueusly upon American
soil and formed a government eternal as
the hills constituted of the people, by the
peeple,aud for the pcepIe,and which te-day
stretches its sons ever the entire world
and cordially invites all into its benign
folds. Where then in the history of the
world shall we place America? Shall wc
class her with the alicient empires of
Greece and Reme, the immortal Washing
ton with the ambitious Crasar, the martyr
ed Lincoln with the bloodthirsty Alexan
der ? Shall wc clas her with her presump
tions rival the majesty of England, who
beasts of her Wellington ? Shall we class
her with France and p jwerfnl Germany,
Napeleon and Frederick the Great'.' With
one accord we answer "Ne," aud without
a blush. Where then shall we place Amer
ica? She stands proudly aloft towering
above the glory of evanescent empires, in
cluding all nations ; the Paradise of the
19th century, the pyramid of honor and
glery,thc palladium of libcrty,and above all
wield3 the sublime influence upon all na
tions te work in harmony and p2aco,te en
gage in generous competition in a noble
contest for superiority in wise legislation
and internal improvements in the sphere of
liberty and humauity.

Several Galveston gentlemen started
last Sunday morning early for the purpose
of desecrating that day. They carried guns
aud flasks with them for that purpose.
The flasks were net as dry inside as a
powder-horn. They were net that kind
of flasks. Finally they saw ducks, and
proceeded te erganise a campaign, plan.
They crawled up en the ducks en their
stomachs that is, en their own (the
hunters') stomachs and blazing away
killed two ducks. The Sunday hunters
secured their prey, and proceeded te the
cabin cf an old darkey hard by, for the
hunters were hungry. They told him they
would shower down wealth upon
him if he would cook their wild ducks for
breakfast. The eldllarkcy turned these
wild ducks ever and exclaimed : "Dem ai
ls my tame ducks, and dey is wuff fifty
cents a piece. Dey is se tame dey runs
after mc whenebcr I gees down te do'pend. "
Then the hunters looked at each ether and
said : "Don't let us tell anybody about it.
for fear the Sifter may get held of it,"
and they paid ever enj silver dollar te
the old African for his pet ducks, which,
he did net cook for them. But the best
of the joke is that the old darkey lied, for
the ducks were really wild ducks, after
all, but the Galveston sportsmen did net
knew the difference.. The old darkey
makes as much as ten dollars a Sunday by
going out and claiming all the wild ducks
that are shot as his tame ducks. In every
instance the huntsman hands ever the

David Benedict, of Harristown, West
chester co., N. Y., is a haic hearty farmer.
He was walking through Chatham street,
N w Yerk, when James W. Ward and
William Farnham, two confidence men,
approached him. Ward, handing David
Benedict a circular from a tea cempauy,
remarked that if Mr. Benedict would only
take some of that tea with him te West
chester they would pay him 'well for it.
David Benedict inquired what kind of tea
they were selling. They invited Mr. Bene
dict te accompany them te a saloon in
City Hall place, aud there they gave him
a cup of tea,, which net only nauseated
him but went te his head. While sittiug
there a man entered, who represented
himself as the "Blue Grass Here of Ken
tucky." He was loud in his announce
ments of hew he had beaten some of the
smartest thieves iu New Yerk. He drew
from his pocket a large roll of bills and
three cards. The he explained te his
fiiends hew he had wen the great roll of
meney ey a tricK. Mr. Hencdict was in
troduced te try and learn the game.
He drew from his wallet 80S which he
held closely in his hand. He was net te
be caught easily, but was willing te
wager if the game was explained te him.
While he was watching the "Blue Grass
Here of Kentucky" shuffling the cards
and showing hew the trick was done,
James W. Ward snatched the $SS and at
tempted te escape. David Benedict is a
burly man, with great muscle aud strong
lungs. He slieuted for the police, anil
hung en te the coattails of Ward and
Farnham. The "Blue Glass Here from
Kentucky" escaped. Mr. Benedict man
aged te held en te the ethers until Police
man Leahy came up, who took the two
