In a little ICI Churchin the State of Virginia,
Sonternegroes had gathered to worship the . Lord;
And after the service they had a clam meeting,
That each for the Master might utter i word.
Their leader exhorted, and apcdttof the warfare
Which Christiana timid wagelimtinst error el
And Anlshrd by asking the following question :
*Which way Is your teustet a-p•lntln• today?"
One after another they gave their experience; .
Some brothers were happy, some lukewarm or
cold; •
One . saw his way clear to the portals of glory, .
Another hid strayed like a lamb from the told,
At last Droller liarkia—a renegade member,
~And Satan's companion for many a day—
Arose, cleared tile throat; though visibly - nervous,
He folded his arms and proceeded to sty:
"Dear brudden and slaters, :I once wain Christian
I once was as bappzatiany one here;
at for de church like a battlesscarred soldier,
' And stood by her banners when traitors were
" Hold on, dar," the leader excitedly shouted ;
"Please answer the question I axed you, I say

The, Democrats talk of the glory of 'Hancock,
And boast of the record of English as well;
Then glee them due honlif; for Judas was loyal
Till money was offered ; he took It., and fell.
I would liken their boasrto the bout of old Rarkis,
And then, with the class leader, honestly say:

The question, my friends, Is of vital. importance;
The nation is waiting In anxious suspense ;
Each 'timter can wield a political musket,
Then wield it, I ask, In your country's. definse.
The issue afore us Is Clear and uncloUded:

* There Is a tide In the affairs of mere
Which, taken at the turn, leads on to fortune.
" Why, this is like a bit 'out : of
Cranford," said I to a friend as we
came out into the clear winter tiri
light, from a house where she had
taken ,me to pay a call.
" Yes ; Mrs. Gaskell: would havev
made a charming picture out of that
cosy little parlor, with Miss Sadh
sitting alone there, so round and fat
and comfortable-looking." ("Pretty.
too," interposed I; "she must have
been pretty when she was young.")
"That parrot, too, it is as good to
her' almost as a child. andas trouble
, some." (My friend does not believe
in the delightfulness of children )
"And Miss Plains makes as much of
the parrot as her - sister. I wish you
had seen MissYhillis; but she is al
ways out of afternoons."
[norl 9:74
And then - I. learned how, at the
othqr end of the town, lived an old
gentleman, very helplesiand
whom Miss I'hillis for'.-years had
gone to see every day, l epending,an
hour or two in reading dr talking to
In summer I often tiSed to meet
her walking beside his bath•chair.
She is not at all like Miss Sarah, but
very tall and thin, and decided!y ac
tive for her years. This winter I
hear poor Mr. White cannot go out
at all, but Miss Phillis never misses
a day in going to see him."
Is he a relation ?"
• " Oh, no; only a very old friend.
An old bachelor, too—quite solitary.
People do say—have said it any time
these thirty years—that he' had bet
ter have married Miss Phillis, and
that she , would 'not have objected ;
but one never knows the truth of
-Neese things. They have been most
steady friends, anyhow."
Here, truly, was a chapter out of
Cranford," or out of human life
generally. Once I had myself chanced
to see
,Mr. White—a funny little old
man in a brown Brutus wig—it was
difficult to Make a sentimental hero
of him. Still—
Jan. 1,1875
" I have always been rather fond
of Miss Phillis," continued my friend.
"She would, have made a good man's
fireside very bright Perhaps Mr.
'AV was one of those who ate al
' aysinissing their chances, Who can
not take,-the tide at the turn.' If
so, it was a pity. So many let hap
piness slip by them and regret it
when too late. IC ot.that Pam aware
of Miss Millis,' regreting anything.
She is . a very cheerful-minded woman;
and is invaluable now to old Mr.
We were neither of us in a mor.t .
izing mood, being also cheerful-min' -
ed women, and bent on enjoying as
much as possible our. brief winter
holiday—" kehtly but kindly," like
our own advancing age—so the con
versation dropped-
Since, hoirever, it has often re
curled to, me, in noticing bow very
common is this fatal peculiarity of
not being 'able to '" take the tide ht
the turn," especially in love affairs.
That of , MisslPhillis and Mr. White
may never haVe existed at all, except
in the imagination of their friends;
but I have known several other in
stances in which.a little honest yash
ness would > have been the beit wis
dom. •
One case especially: a young
couple—play fellows from childhood
—all their ,friende agreeable to and
expecting their engagement, nay wait
ing- somewhat anxiously, for the
gentleman to "make up his mind ;
and say the final word, whiCh from
pure shyness he delayed doing. At
last, one Sunday—the young lady
wag 'going away on Monday—he de
termined to' speak during their usual
evening walkj home from church.
"I'll go to church with you
to-night," said an unconscious, , well
intentioned friend. .Alas "l "two is
company, three is none." The pro=
posal was not made—never made.
Three days after the lady accepted a
lorippersistent suitor, who years be.,
fore.had made* his Mind—and de
clared it, Wall, no hearts were bro
ken apParentis. She married, but
her old pla7fellow is a bachelor still.
Zde comes now And then to , see bar,
Aril 1;187.,
romps with her children, plays chess
with her husband, and does not look
at all miserable f But perhaps, when
he goes back to his handsome, empty
house, he wishes thingsad been a
little digerent. -
I t -
However,love, if it be the heart of
the life, conktitutes only a str.iall.por
tion of it extern - to man at
least On many other matters beside
love-matters, this *Nifty to take
the tide at the turn is most fatal.
How many a man owes his whole
success in life to the faculty of being
able to see the golden moment and
catch it ere it flies 11 " All things
come alike to all." Inuit is (With
very rare excePlions). every man has
a certain number of chances—the
distinction between success and fail
ure is that one grasps them, another
lets them slip by. An unanswered
letter o an -- appointment broken, a
train missed',lmay for all we know
change the color of our whole exis
tence. Alt the more becaOse we do
not know ; until, looking back, we
see upon what trivial things—mere
accidents apparently hinged the
most important events of our lives.
A situation applied for at once, and
gained "juiit at the nick of time ;" a
first invitation accepted, not neglect
ed ; a business letter answered with
out delay; an appointment kept with
trouble and pains, yet still, kept;
these small things have many a time
proved the'key-stone of the arch on
which a young man has built his for
tunes. "-Only a quarter of . an hour !"
said an old man to a you ng one who
was apologizing carelessly for having
kePt him waiting thus long. "My
friend, to that quarter of an hdur -I
'owe everything in ift• 1"
Between the courage which siezes
an opportunity and the sanguine
rashness which ',snatches at every
thing and grasps: nothing, is as wide
a difference as - between bravery and
fooltritrdiness. .Sometimes one may
make a, mistake. A lady once told
me how she stood before a post-office
with a letter in her hand—a moment
ous letter, written on the impulse of
the moment, and with a strong' con
scientious desire to do the right—all
the more because it was painful—
how twice, three times, she seemed
to*feel some invisible hand restrain
ing her ,own, how she looked help
lessly up to ie silent sunset sky—
then with a sort ,of desperation
dropped the letter into the .box—and
regretted it to her dying day. •
But these difficult crises seldom
happen. On the whole, far more
harm is done by irresolution than by
precipitation : ewe, as I have heard
it- said, and I agree thereto, weakness
is worse than wickedness. At any
rate, it is more dangerous. The man
who can - never make up his mind,
who lets chance after chance go past
him, is always a little too late for
everything, and never knows that
kindly fortune has touched him till
he caches the last sad sweep of her
garment as she glides by—forever
the misery which this man creates
and inflicts—for it is a fallacy that
any one can be nobody's enemy but
his own—is, in the aggregate, much
greater than that caused by the strong
bad man. Him we recognize at once,
and against him we can protect our
selvesta little ; against the other we
never can. - Our very pity takes up
arms against our judgment. For,
alas ! we know the certain end—
" lie that will not when be may,
When he would be shall have nay."
Only for a single hopeful minute
is the tide on the turn; when once'it
has turned, it has turned forever, and
Leaves blm at eye on the bleak shore alone."
All thorough business men and
women—for women require to be
good " men of business," too, in this
our day—know that the aptitude for
seeing the right moment to do a
thing, and doing it, without rashness,
but also without delay, is a vital ne
cessity of success-success in any
thing. Ile who puts off till to-morrow
what can be done—or ought to be
on e—t oday , is most hopeless as a
clerk, a servant, or in any position
where regular systematic work is re
quired. More fatal still is such a
quality in a master or mistress—for
the real heart of a family is almost
always the mistress. If the cannot
take \the tide at the turn," judge
the fittest moment fur domestic de
cisions of all kinds, and carry them
out, woe betide her ! There tnay be
no actual shipwreck, but,her house
hold hark will be a very helpless,
helmless vessel at best.
This habit of diliatoriness and in
decision is so much of it mere habit
that - children cannot be too early
taught,'first the necessity of making
up one's mind, and then of acting
upon it. The trick of "hanging
about'," of wasting minute after min
ute, hour after hour, in work
_as in
play—for idlers never even play con
scientiously—is often acquired in
mere infancy, and too often, alaallin
imitation of elders and betters, never
to be got rid of to the end of life.
What is in the boy, or girl pure care
lessness, becomes in the man and .wo
man a confirmed peculiarity, which
haunts them like a curse, causing no
end of misery to themselves and all
belonging to them.
For, we know our gains -and
achievements; our losses, our fail
ures, we never fully know. Big we
may dimly guess at them, by our
despair over some application thrown
aside and neglected, till the lost
chance of benefiting ourselves or our
neighbor can never be recalled ; our
remorse over an unanswered letter,
when the writer has suddenly gone
whither no kindly word can teach
him any more ; bur regret over cor
dial visits left unpaid, and pleasant
meetings unvalued, till friendship,
worn out, dies a natural death, or
burns Itself to ashes like a fire with
put fresh coals.' Then we may lay
the blame on Providence, luck, cir
cumstances ; anything or anybody
except the: true sinners, ourselves.--
but it is too late.
" We cannot help it," we plead,
and after a certain time we really
cannot help it. There is a disease
called paralysis of thelwill, actual
physical disease, though its results are
moral, and every one who cultivates,
orrather does not saliva with all his
might to eradicate, the habit lade•
claim; lays himself open thereto. A
baby—even a dumb infant who
"knows its own mind," and stretches
out the little impetuous hand, quite
pertain whether it is the,doll or the
agon which it wants tor' play with,
and eager to snatch it, without wast
ing a minote--is a person not to be
despised, but encontaged. The gift
of being able to enjoy tirday, not to
morrow pr .next week, but today,
which alone is our real property, and
also (the one faculty involves the
other) of doing resolutely each day's
work within the day, is one of the
greatest blessings that can fall to the
lot of any human being, Let us, who
are parents, try by all conceivable
means to secure it to our children.
For the young can learn ; the old
seldom can. '" Redeeming the time
because the days are evil " is very
difficult when the days have become
;" when the glow has gone out
of life, and instead, of the rosy flush
of hope the gray. twilight of , endur
ance settles overall things; when we
smile at " taking the tide at the tur6,7
knowing that no more tides wil er
turn, for us it least-:-but y may
for our children. „
Let us teach them 'di' tier or not
we have learned it ou Ives, " what
soever thy hawd find h to do, do it
with thy might." Ond do it at the
lime. No"t - --4.tosuacrioir or the day
after, or "by-and-by when I am in
the mood for it," but at once, at the
moment when it presents itself to be
done. For the tide will turn, and
you never know the moment of ita
turning. Be first clear-sighted, cau
tious, prudent, and then be decided.
Make up 'your mind ; ' , but having
made it up; act upon it. Do not—
,6 Linger shivering on the brink, -
And tenr to launch sway
but -take the tide at the tarn; plunge
boldly in; do your best, and trust
the rust.
There"is an old English verse - part
of a love - poem I think; but it ap
plies to many another crisis in life
besides love—
" He either tears his tate too watch,
Or his deserts are small, .
Who dare not put It to the touch,.
To win.or low It all."
And without defending either fol
ly, recklessness or rashness, I think
we may safely say that the man who
dare put it to the touch " is the
man most likely to prosper through
hawing taken "the turn of the tide."
The Mountains of the Moon.
When one looks• at the moon
through . a powerful telescope furnish
td with a prism eye-piece, he seems
to be suspended in mid-air and look
ing down upon the -lunar plains and
mountains from an enormous height.
The falling away of the surface to
ward the edges of the great ball
ametimes produces the sensation
thSt is experienced in standing on,
the brink of a., Viddy pecipice. If'
the, magnifying power used is 500
diameters, the effect is about the
same as if the observer were in a
balloon 500 miles above the surface
of the moon. Below him lie moun
tains greater than Mont Blanc and
Chimborazo, looking no larger than
pebbles. Ancient sea bottoms are
spread beneath ( him like smooth
doors, dotted here and there with
elevations that 'may once have been
islands, and surrounded by table
lands, plains and mountain chains
that show where the old seacoast was
flat and -marshy where it was full of
harbors, and where it was iron-bound
and perilous. Great naked plains
stretch out in various directions' as
smooth as our prairies, and in other
.plaCes there are reaches of hilly
country, and then tremendous moun
tain masses The great topographic
al features remain, as in the days
when the moon was 'young and full
of life like the earth ; but the coasts'
are silent as the mountain peaks, the
seas arc empty, the fruitful soil is
gone, all that ancient, teeming life
has vanished, and the whole land is
void of air. It is only' the rocky
skeleton of a dead world,And picture
of what our earth will be hundreds
of millions of years hence.
~ With a good three-inch telescope,
and a little practice in the manage
ment of the magnifying powers, one
may many see all the famous• moun
tains of the moon, and most of the
strange looking objects that have at
difTerent times been, taken for- fortifi
cations, roads and other works of
man. There are a number of ex el
lent maps of the moon, by whose aid
every conspicuous object may be re
cognized. The point of greatest in
terest-to the observer 'is \the long,
jagged line, called - the terminator,
that. marks the sharp ;division be
tween day and night. If you watch
- that line for an hour two you will be
astonished at the changes that take
place under your eye. You will see
the sunshine creeping down the inner
side of a ringed mountain, until the '
floor of the vast basin, whirl had be
fore been perfectly black,. looking
like a hole right through the moon, is
reached and lighted ,up,,( while the
rocky flanks of the central peak, or
cluster of peaks, come into view,,
and begin to cast long, spiry shadows
over the crater floor. A lefty moun
tain, whose summit,• gilded by the
sunlight, has been visible for an hour,
Shining out of the dense obscurity
that'covers the region about it which
is yet steeped in night, like a little
island lying off a sunny coast, gradu
ally swings into view, •and the line
of Sunshine goes sweeping t , up its
craggy sides, chasing the rehadows
.and. revealing rocky spires and pre
cipitous gorges deeper than the vall
ley of the Dior de Glace.
The vast dark plains, which were
formerly supposed to be real; seas,
but in which modern astronomers see
only the bottoms of seas whose
waters disappeared ages ago, retain
their old romantic names. , Th‘re iB
, the Ocean of Storms, covering a vast
region Irv' the Eastern' hemisphere.
Witb is equatorial situation, and sin
, rounded by some of the most gigan
tic mountains in the moon, it- may
have been, before its waters was
stolen away, as tempestons as its
name implies. On the south of the
Ocean of Storms projects a large
bay of a• remarkably green hue, which
' is Called tb e Sea of Moistureofhilt
: -
_ •
on the north the ocean runs into the
narrow Bay of Dew. Then there is .
the Sea of Showers, the largest of
the_mcituVa seas or sea bottoms. 2 Be
tween the Sea of Showers and that
brilliant portion of the moon called
the Land of hoar Frost lies theßay
of Rainbows, which , as the celebrated
observers'Beer and !darner thought,
furnishes the most; magnifiblnt land
scape in the moon:. It is surrounded
by, lofty, shining cliffs. In th'e centre
of the moon arelhe Sea of 'Vapors
and the Bay of Tides., In the north
are Plato, or the Greater Black Lake,
the Sea of Cold, 'and the Marsh of
Sleep, the latter being remarkable
for its reddish hue. In 'the east are
the Sea of Serenity, the Sea of Tran-
Auility, the Sea of Fertility, the Sea
of Nectar and the dark Crisian sea.
The last named; judging from its no
-usual depressiot., was probably the
deepest of all the lunar seas, although
its greatest length is only about 350
miles.. • _
Around all these seas cluster ting
ed mountains, craters and mountain
ranges, whose shadows are thrown
upon their level surfaces, varying in
length and shape and number with
every hour. The whble southern
quarter of the moon is occupied by
the great mountain region that has
the tremendous crater for its centre.
Here the amateur telescopist may'
spend hoursamong the glittering
peaks. It ie l ike looking down into
the heart of the Adirondacks, with
the mountains increased ten fold in
magnitude and a thousand fold in
riurnber. The , mountain wall that
'surrounds Tycho is a perfect- ring 1
fifty-four Miles in diameter, and three
miles high.. Exactly in the centre of
the great flat floor,' inclosed within
the ring; rises .a mountain peak a
mile in height that shines' brilliantly
in the sunlight. In a good three-inch
telescope, Tycho is an object of sur
prising beauty and, ever-varying in
terest as the sunshine creeps up its
1 outer wall, leaps down .the terraced
slope of the opposite side of thelrink,
and, sliding across the broad.
level floor, climbs the central peak,
and throws its long-pointed shade*
clear across the crater. For hundreds
of miles on every side of Tycho the
whole surface of the moon is broken
and upheaved into jagged mountain
masses, in which are many peaks
loftier than the highest Alps, and
some that can equal the mightiest of
the Andes. The spectacle of the
sunrise upon these mountains is mag
nificent bey° d description.
Some of, t e highest mountains in
the moon lie along the edge of .the
disk, and are seen in profile against
the sky. Such are the Doerfel Moun
tains and the Leibnitz Range south
of Tycho, which rival our Himalayas
in height. In the telescope they give
the edge of the moon a broken or
scalloped appearance.
These are but few of the wonderful

REST FOR TILE WE.say.-,,What a
strange thought I All thisiirestless
world is seeking rest. Those who
drag their weary bodies home, night
after night, and fall down upon their
restless beds, worried with the anxie
ties and cares of business, are yet
seekingi'rest. It is not found in pov
erty ; perhaps it lurks under the rich
man, all the while that he lies, groan
ingapon his. couch or stands with:
wrinkled brow perplexed with care.
Where is rest?-What is rest? It is
the divine principle 'of peace within
that comes from 'God': As well seek
roses upon the pallid cheek of death
as rest out of God. The needle rests
not till it turns to the pole.. If a
little child is frightened at play, he
comes running into the house for his
Mother. She takes him to her bosom,
,Itisses upon' his, broar, and
while she sings some lullaby of love,
all fear fades from his face and he
sleeps in peace. God wants' to fill.a
mother's place to 'all the world. If
it be misfortune, or poverty, or
gloomy foreboding that makes one
unhappy, God can give him, rest and
breathe a lullaby of love about his
tempest tossed soul that - will still s its,
raging. Rest, peace, - is a principle
that lies within us and not'without.

An Irish Miner's Speech.

Campaign Hall was the scene of- a
very successful demonstration last
night, fully 1,500 people being in at
tendance upon the impromptu meet
ing at which members of the - Irish-
Anierican Republican Convention
were announced to speak. The pro
ceedings throughout were ; character
ized by unbounded enthusiasm, every
point made by the speakers being
greeted with loud spontaneous
applause. The meeting was. called .
to Order by..ThomasNcSheeny, and
Prank Ryari,tof EvariSville. who was
calfed to the chair,'was making the
opening Speech, when the Hon. Al
bert G. .Porter the ,hall. The
arrival of Mr. Porter was hailed with
great applause, and there were calls
from all parts f the hall for a speech
from " the people's candidate" for
GOvernor. Mr. Porter had, however,
come to the meeting, simply as a
i tener; and
.after gracefully thanking
the audience, for the hearty reception
accorded him, stated that it
give - him much greater pleasure and
be of greater service to the Republi
can party for the - gentlemen in charge
of the meeting to carry out the oriai
nal programme: The - speakers of the
evening were Messrs. Ryan. of
Evansville ;'/Matthew Gray, of Bain
bridgei Morrison, of Woods,-
of Warrick county, and Masterson,
of St. - Louis. The feature of the
evening was t ch of Mr. WOods.
He was i roduced by the Chairman
as Jim Woods, the Irish Hoosier, of
Booneville, in Warrick county, and
his remarks, stenographically report
ed, were as follows :
" I have been a life-long Democrat.
I have worked faithfully for that
party. But I just want to say right
here to you laboring men,for it's you
I want to talk to more especially--- ,
you mechanics, that have been work
ing in the tout dries here for the last
two or three days when the heat has
been enough to , kill you--we're no
bankers nor bondholders, you know
—[laughter !]—that th 6 question you
have to think about Is whether the
laboring men and the liishmen
should vote for the-Republican party
or the Democratic party. [Cries of
That's it,',and cheers.] And 1 have
come to the conclusion, within the
last two weeks, that we ought to vote
the Republican ticket, [loud cheers,]
and I am going to tell you why. Now
what I tell you is this: That it is for
every honest man, no matter where
he comes from, or who he is, to see
that be does not go t orrong on this
matter, and that other people do not
go wrong. feel that I have got a
little honor-thd„ manhood left, altho'
I. know the Democratic papers will
give me fits, [laughter.] for I am
known everywhere down in' my part
of this State. Four years ago I was
interested in the election of Tilden
and Hendricks. They told us that
their election meant economy and
reform. f Laughter.] 'But one eve
ning I beganto look at it and think
about it, and , when I began to I look
at it I began to get weak-kneed,
[great laughter.] and I haver 4 got
strong yet. [Renewed laughter and
uproarious cheers.] Can't you keep
these people quiet, Mr. Chairman ?
[Laughter.] If Alley, don't mind
they'll get my Irish spunk up:; [Re
newed laughter.) Now, ilbout this
economy the Democrats arc speaking
about so much all over the hind.
They tell you they have saved over
$40,000,060. Tliey say they are the
party of economy and reform, and
that they have ,saved 'any amount'of
money. I telt you" what I thought
about it when had fend a - little
about it at home. I read what, they
were doing in Congress, and I found
that there were vessels of the Navy
that'were built during the ivar, and
that cost =the coiintry, millions„tOat
were" allowed to become useless fAist
for want of ix,little repairs; and yet
there' were \ liundreds of laborers,: who
were scarcely-able to get bread 'for
their familie '
s and many a man - Was
hardly able to keep life-in his wife
and children; because they had: to be
discharged from the Navy-yard just
because there was no money topay
them. Just becauie of this economy,l
in another part of the Government
departments, the clerks, even a lot of
poor girls, had to be discharged ; and
so the laboring nien had to be dis
charged and thrown out of . employ
ment so that the Democratic party
might go before the country, and
show what they had done. This was
whit they called economy and reform.
"'There are two parties that are
asking us for their votes, and the
question I asked myself was, Which
party am I going to take stock in ?
Is my interest - With the Northern or
Southern people ? Which of these
- -
two-sections will help the laboring
men ? I have come to the conclusion
that if there is to'be a solid South, I
will Vote with ' the solid - North.
[Loud cheers.] You remember. if
you read about the Cincinnati Con
uention, that several gentlemen got
up Ind promised the solid South.
nein Democrats olaimed right along
that they would have a solid South,
and the Chairman appointed as Chair
man of all the important committees
some of the Southern men. These
are facts that cannot be denied.
Now, I have this questionto ssic you,
t :.,, 1 r. ...i - :: - : . 4 ,.' ~. --::
- ~, ! I --, -•---. .
and whether you have been Republi
cane or Democrats,l want you to
lay your prejudices aside. If I speak
the truth, give me credit for. it; if I
tell you a lie, I don' t t want you to
believe anything just - because I say
it, but read all aboutitfor yourselves.
Where are , the emigrants that have
come from the oppressed peoples' of
Europe? Where , are they gone? To
the South ? or are they not in the
North an] Noith-western States ?
Ninety per cent. of them are in the
North. [Cheers ] And which was
the party that got, these Homestead
laws under which they can icome
here and get along in life ? They
came from the , Republican party.
This is one reason why I am going
to vote the Republican ticket [Loud
cheers.] Now, I have another. ti,fro
years ago I wad, a delegate to the
Democratic- COnvention from
county, and the committee on reso
lutions reported a platform in which
they said they were in favor of the
repeal -of the Resumption act. That
was another thing I began to get
shaky-aboPt. [Laughter.] ' I knew
just as well as possible that Sherman
was going to come out all right.
[Cheers.] The Democrats said then
that when the Resumption act went
in Ibreelhey were going to take out
every bit of gold there was in the
Treasury. But they never did it.
[Laughter and cheers.] Now just
look a little at these things. E T ,can't,
give you any fine' polished talk.. I
leave that to other people. I don't
know much grammar, but I can read
about-these things, and I thlinktood

say is : 'Stirdy well, andihe careful

have traveled a good .deal. They
tell you. there are plenty of plices
down there, but I know - tihat in the
South a poor man, no matter how

of getting along. The Northern men
are the 'friends of the laboring man.

this-for a considerape length of time,
and I think lam right. [Cheem]
And when I know I am right, I don't
allow any man to change me from my

any of • these men that have no re
spect far you except at electio4s.
[Cheers.] I heard a man say ondy,
• They never came to see me except
at an election, and then they fetched
me in a carriage, and I was a gentle
man.' [Laughter.] I only just want
to say a few more words to you now,
but' you will hear from me again be
fore this campaign is over. What I
tell you now is this: Let every man
consider himself a committee of . ope
to work for.. the success of our Melia
[Cheers mid cries of "-That's the way
we'll do it.'] Don't, go and talk about
it, but do it. My fellow-countrymen,
this Republican platform is large
enough and wide enough and grand
enough for every Irisbniiin and every.
laboring man to stand upon. [Loud
cheera.] This one thing we are go
ing to do—you Mark, it: We are
going to-give the votes of the labor
ing men to their friend at Indianapo
lis—,[eheers]—a man that has stood
by tliem [renewed cbeers] and has
'been their friend whenever they got
into a difficulty and " needed help to
seenre them their rights. [Loud
cheers.] He has helped them many
times, and the working men of this
State are going to stay by him and
dive him a grand vote on the second
Tuesday in betober. [Cheers.] That
man is Mr. Porter [turning to-wheit'
that gentleman was seated upon the
stage and taking him. by the hand,
amid renewed and demonstrative
cheers]. I hope he will succeed, and
I will do all I can to get him elected.

of applause.] Gov. Porter—l feel

There has been such a dearth =
snake stories this searn, that the
experience of Mr. Isaac Baker, a lo
comotivefengineer on the D. L. R. W.
Railroad will be read, with interest.
On Sunday afternoon last, while-Mr.
Baker, in company with his fathers
in-law, Mr. Stephen Wheeler, of thi4
city, was on; the Anountaln, west
of Scranton looking up some stone
to be used for building• purposes he
•killed fourteen rattlesnakes, and ex
hibits their skins and rattles in ver-i4 -
fication of his story. He said hind
self and Mr. Wheeler had walked
some time through the brush, and
came upon a craggy clearing when
Mr. Wheeler . saw two huge -rattle
snakes lying just before them. Mr.
Baker, who is an expert snake fight
er, at once gave battle to the ." var
mints," and soon pinned then] one
after another to the ground with it
forked stick which he carried, and
then cut off their heads. One of the
reptiles measured four feet six inch
es' and had sixteen rattles, and the
other measured four feet and one
' inch long. The largest was seven
inches around the thickest part of its
body.. They had no sooner dispatch.
eh this formidable pair than another
large one attended by eleven smaller
ones, came out from among the
rocks. The old one at once showed
fight, and with bead and tail erect,
hissed and rattled Viciously and
sprang at its disturbers, all example
that was promptly followed by the'
young snakes. This made matters
Lively for Mr. Baker and his compan
ion, who, however, managed to dodge
the assaults of the reptiles,- and deal
some telling blows with their clubs.
Mr. Baker finally got the old snake's
head in chancery beneath his forked
stick and in' a short time had her
head Off with his -trusty - jack-knife.
Most of the young ones disappeared
during the struggle, but came out of

Who Took the Orphan.
A few days ago a boy about ten -

had been living with his mother, in .
rooms in the city, found him-

was too ill' to ride in the one "__

, 1
' , If he - Wasn't ame' 'l ' d take him
into my family,",observed one of the
men, in a tone that seemed to show - ..
he blamed 'the boy for the misfortune.
" Well, it's awful hard," sighed
one of the women, " but I know he I
couldn't get along with my children.?' •
"Nor with mine," added another.
"If I should take him, he'd run up,
a big doctor's bill on me," said a
man .as he filled his pipe. - - t
Each and every one had' some ex- - -
cuse. The boy heard them all with
a word, but with quivering chin, : -
and eyes full of tears. T f inder one
pretext and another all slipped out,
and left him alone, promising to have
another talk in the morning. Per
that night, before they closed
their .eyes in sleep,. some of them
thought of the poor lad-lying in the
dreary - roans, alone and almost help., -.-

him. Late in the morning "a .woman
- living on the same floor, went in to
see if he might not want a bite to '
eat,, and ,the question of who should
take care of him was nettled. God,
,had taken him. Hugged close to the'
wall, as if he feared the midnight: --
shadows, and with eye-;,lashes yet _
wet, he was dead and cold; no longer'
a burden - to any one. The boy too
lame to be taken care of on earth—
too feeble to earn tliel - crnsts that
so e one would have given him, had
a h me - better than the best. When
the knew that he died alone, women -
ben over him and wept. When they `
lifted the wasted body from the bed,
men's consciences smote them • for , ,
their harsh words, but it was, too --,-
late. He had gone from earth feel- r '
