The Congressional back salary bas

publican party. Democrats as well as
Republicans voted for it. Judge Van
Trump, a Democratic Representative
from Ohio, in au explanatory letter,
I bad voted steadily uud uniformly
against tlie measure, w ithout hesitation or
shadow of turning, although a majority of
my party rtted the other way.
And yet, as applied to the SHlury ques
tion alone, I do not speak of it us parly
capital. As a party question it remains at
rest ; a majority of Hie Democrats, if I lie
Southern members can be classed as strict
Democrats, voted for it. Without their
aid. coupled with the Northern Democrats,
who united with them, it could not have
Ia describing the manner of taking
one of the test votes, Judge Van
Trump continues :
This vote was Liken amidst the wildest
excitement in I lie House. It was manliest,
from the way in which the vote was run
liing, that the contest would be a ( lose one.
After tbe voting was closed, and the names
were being slowly read at the desk by the
reading clerk, it was ascertained that the
question was lost by three or lour majori
ty. Then commenced a most ludicrous
scene. Five or six members sprang tn
llieir teet and changed their votes troin the
negative to the affirmative, thus turning
the majority to two on the other side, and
I am sorry to say that the majority of
these changing votes came from the Demo
cratic side ot the House.
Gov. E. F. Xoyes, in a speech de
livered at Athens, Ohio, Aug. 25th,
quoted J udge Van Trump's letter as
an evidence of bow the Democratic
party as represented in Congress stood
on the back salary question, and then
qualified as follows :
I refer to these facts not for the purpose
ol defending or shielding in the slightest
degree those Republicans who, by their in
fluence and votes, promoted the back-pay
salary iniquity, but only to show that it
does not lie in the mouths of Democrats to
make party capital out of it. All mem
ber? of both parties who voted for the bill
'will be held individually responsible for
their acts by the people. Neither political
party is respoesible, so long as it disap
proves and condemns the scandalous pro
ceeding. The prospective increase, not
withstanding the time was opportune. I
would probably bave been borne by tbe
jeople, but, connected as it was with the
back pay provision, the whole transaction
is tainted, and the convention very ptoper
ly demand the repeal of the w hole bill.
Tbe Pittsburg Post, in commenting
on an editorial in Forney's Press, on
eompuUary education says; In point ef
fact, crime does not arise from igno
rance, nor from mere intellectual train
ing. We bave heard the devii himself
aptly described as "a being all intel
lect and no heart." Doubtless he i
as well posted in science as any of
tboso philosophers who prated so learn
edly at the teachers convention in this
city the other day. ( rime is to be
prevented by moral anl religious train-
mg, and tbat alone. Nothing but the
formation of a Christian character will
aave children from wicked courses, and
there are few parents who would be
willing to trust tbe religious training of
their offspring to tbe average school
teacher in 1 ennsylvauia.

much ground mustard, stirred rapidly in

it begins to come up, bringing with it the
contents of the stomach , and, lest there be
any reninan' of a poison, however small.
let the white of an egg or a teacupful of
strong coffee be swallowed as the stomach
is quiet, because these very common arti
