THE DONATION PARTY.
"Why, of all things when did you get
home?" said the merry Mrs. Belles, as she
entered her cheerful parlor at ten o'clock on
Thanksgiving night, and found her husband
fitting moodily alone, having just returned
fr.im a trip to New York, and she ; hook him
heartily by the hand, and left her kiss of
true wifely affection upon his lip; ha still
keeping his seal and looking as if he had
run off the track or had his consignment of
merchandise sunk to the bottom of Lake
''How long have you Len here?" she
again asked, not heeding his silence.
"An hour or two."
"Come down on the Clipper?"
I'tm gentlemen nodded.
''Been well?" she continued, drawing off
h r gloves, unpinning her shawl, and laying
off her hat.
"Oh!" she exclaimed, shaking back her
curls, "how I wish you had got home before
night, that you might have gone with me to
the donation party; we had the niecst time

a sneer; "is it Parson Allen you call poor

All this was said with a surly tone. Mary,

And Edward, who after all was a very
jond husband, drew her hand in bis and

and to work we went. Every man and wo
man we met said 'yes ; she nursed my wife
when she was sick,' said Mr. Seott; 'she took
care of my little Henry when he had his arm
broken,' said Mr. Jones; 'Mother Brown,
to be sure I'll help,' responded Judge Fry ;
'sha has put the first slip on my children,
God bless her;' 'dear grandmother Brown,
I'll do all I can,' said the fashionable Mrs.
Grey ; 'she was wi. h my little Nettie, and
laid her dear little form into the coffin ;'
'help her? yes by hokey,' said the rough
butcher, Hopkins. 'She ought to be sup

years, she has never lut anybody want that

"And 30 it went ; everybody willing to

thanks to our Heavenly Father by giving of

widow, grandmother aud orphaned little

A Gentle Hint.
Old Deacon Hopkins was a worthy soul
and generally respected for his outward
show of piety and religious zeal ; aud I
have no doubt that he felt at heart most
that he professed.
But the Deacon bud his weaknesses. In
a certain direction he was troubled with a
morbid desire. His chief employment was
the making of soap from ashes which he
gathered in the neighborhood ; and in
making his soa; be was obliged to keep
two or three kettles of lye boiling to
which end an abundance of fuel was neces
sary. Now it eo happened that the Deacon's
neighbor was Captain Jack Payson, whose
calling kept, him upen salt water the greater
part of the time. Captain Jack was a
great hand to keep his family supplied
with well-seasoned wood, and as he owned
an extensive forest lot, he often had a vast
pile of it cut and bauled to his house, and
there worked Up and stacked. It further
more chaneed that the rear door of the good
Deacon's soap house opened directly upou
the rear of Captain Jack's huge wood pile.
The temptation was strong. Surely, there
could be no harm in taking a few of the
scattering sticks; the Captain would never
But the disease grew upou the necessity
of feeding the Gres, and he fancied, kind
old soul ! that the Captain would never miss
the abstracted fuel. But he was destined
to rather an unlooked for and unpieasaut
enlightenment, us we shall soon see.
The question was up before the church of
introducing instrumental music into the
choir. One of the singers had a base viol,
which he was willing to play if the breth
ren would permit, and both he aud the
chorister declared that it would he.'p the
singing wonderfully. But this was before
the days when fiddles were tolerated in
sacred plaees, and several of the brethren
objeclu i. Deacon Hopkins was enthusiastic
and bitter in his opposition. At a full
meeting of the church he expressed himself
Captain Jack, who chaneed to be on
shore, was present, and favored the intro
duction of the viol.
"Bring it in." cried the Deacon, "and I
wiil go out ! I won't be seen where that
big fiddle is tolerated."
"Will you stick to that pledge, Deacon ?"
asked tha Captain.
"les, sir!" replied the irate functionary-
"Then," said Captain Jack, with a curi
ous twinkle of the eye, "you shan't be
troubled with the fiddle in the church. I
wiil buy it and hangit upon my wood pile 1"
The poor Deacon shrank away behind his
enormous shirt collar, while tbe friends of
the big nddle carried their point.
One after another, tbe newspapers are
giving their testimony against putting on
biack as a sign of mourning. The Pitts
burgh United j'reljyterian says: "A family
will shroud itselt in black tor years, as an
expression of sorrow for one of. its dead.
That one mav be in heaven, rejoicing with
joy unspeakable, while relatives on earth
are moving about in heavy and somt.re gar
ments, making their lives as gloomy as they
can. There is no fitness in the thing. It is
often a mere mockery of sorrow." It also
objects to the practice oo the ground of ils
expense to the poor.
"I will forfeit my head if you are not
wrong," exclaimed a vehement United
States Senator to Presideut Lincoln, in an
argument. "I accept," replied the Presi
dent; "any trifle among friends has a

GLENNI W. SCOFIELD,
January 28th, 1871.
The House, under previous order, having
met as in Committee of the Whole,. Mr.
Scofield, on tbe Amnesty bill, said :
"Mr. Speaker, this is a bill to authorize
certain leaders of the late rebellion to told
office. All the other leaders and all the rank
aud file have that privilege already. A
small number, understood to be the con
trivers of as well as actors in the revolt, are
excluded by tbe fourteenth amendment from
places of trust. The exclusion covers only
those who were guilty not only of the crime
of treason, but of that meaner crime, false
swearing and betrayal. They are not, how
ever, by virtue of any Federal law, excluded
f'om the franchise. The national Govern
ment does not withhold the ballot from a
single rebel, high or low. It permits them
all to vote. In other countries such leaders
would have been beheaded. Our fathers
banished the Tories aud forfeited their
estates. We all believe this rebellion was
causeless ; we all know the precious lives
it cost us ; we all know how much treasure
it consumed; we all know how many hearts
ache to day by its bereavements; yet the
Government has not avenged itselt with the
life of a single criminal. Noue are banished,
none are under bonds. AH can vote, nearly
all can hold office ; a few cannot ; a very
few compared to the whole number. As
near as 1 can make out it is about one in one
hundred of those who participated in the
war against the Government.
Tbe. impression has gone out that some
penalties are imposed, that some of these
offenders are still in danger of death or im
prisonment or loss of property, at least that
some are not allowed to vote, and that none
can hold office. All this is error. Neither
the Constitution nor laws of the United
States impose any penalties, disabilities, or
restrictions of any kind whatever, upon the
authors of our great national sorrows except
to exclude a few of the worst from office.
This bill proposes to remove that slight re
striction. It proposes to put those who at,
tempted to destroy the country upon an
equal footing in all respects with those who
risked their lives to save it. It proposes to
put patriotism and treason on a, common
level ; to make patriots and traitors equal
before the law. The public judgment may
make a difference, but the law is to furnish
no censure for the one and no approval for
the other. I am not now speaking against
the proposed amnesty. I am only describ
ing it. 1 do not want the House to forget,
nor the country to forget, that all the actors
in the rebellion already have all the privi
leges of the Republic, except that a few
leaders cannot hold office, and that this bill
does away with that restriction. I do not
think the advocates of amnesty, in Congress
or out of it, have been very particular to
let tbe people know how little there is left
upon which it can act. They have not been
particular to tell the people that its whole
ai'd only purpose is to enable the leaders to
hold nlhee. They are not particular now to
tell them that this bill is an invitation to
these leaders to come back to Congress and
to the control of States.
Now, before we remove this restriction,
before we give, this invitation, wo ought to
consider its original purpose. What .was
that purpose? Not punishment, certainly.
No new provision was necessary for th;.t.
By pro-existing law, not only these leaders,
but all their followers, were exposed to the
gallows, or, by commutation, to imprison
ment, banishment, and forfeiture. The
purpose of the exclusion was safety, nothing
else. We forgave the crime at once, and
legislated only for the future safety of the
Republic. There was a time in our history,
not very remote, when the words "indem
nity for the pas', and security for the fu
ture" controlled the action of the then dom
inant part-. We exacted from the confed
erates no indemnity for the past, but made
this slight restriction as security for. the
future. Security against what? it is asked.
Do you fear a second rebellion? No, sir, I
do not. Security aeainst legislation in the
interest of the confederacy and against the
Republic. The confederacy had four years
of nationality. Great interests and power
ful passions grew up in the meanwhile.
Their currency, their bonds, their obliga
tions to maimed soldiery, orphanage, widow
hood, their military history and personal
fame, and their vast claims for damaees,
were all autagonistical to the corresponding
interests of the United S?t3tes. Had these
leaders come immediately back to Congress
and assumed control cJf the confederate
States, the question would have been wheth
er their debts or ours should be paid,
whether their soldiers or ours should have
pensions, whether their currency or ours
should pay debts; whether their generals
or ours should be honored, whether the
colored people should be citizens or slaves.
The result would have been a division of
these interests and a compromise of princi
ple. The future historian would have been
puzzled to know which were the victors in
the long struggle. To secure the Republic
against such a result this restriction was
What reasons are assigned for its abroga
tion? I have listened to most of the de
bate, and have hunted through all the
rhetoric of the Globe for an answer. Only
two reasons are given in all this eloquent
talk. First, it irritates the rebel L-adcrs ;
and second. Congress is peddling out this
relief by the small. A word as to the first
reason. Admitting that It Is a cruel thing
to irritate these great offenders, I ask for
the evidence that they irritated. " They have
not so informed Congress ; they have asked
for no relief; or if any of them have, the
prayer has been promptly granted. If they
are irritated let them inform us, and not
leave it for their friends here to get at it
bv a process of reasoning. I think their
friends here are more united in their behalf
than they are for themselves. At all events,
we have no evidence beyond the assertion ot
members that the rebel chiefs are irritated.
It will be time enough to soothe them when
that fact is authoritatively made known.
But to the second reason, the charge of
peddling. From time to time Congress has
removed the restriction as to certain per
sons. This is discrimination, a wise dis
crimination, I think. But the advocates of
universal amnesty call it "peddling ;." and
having given it a belittling name, continually
repeat it as an argument. When a Governor
pardons an offender for exceptional reasons
nobody call it peddling out clemency, and
nobody scolds because he does not pardon
everybody at once. We have already in
this way removed the restriction from sev
eral thousand persons. Not a single person
who has asked it has been denied. These
two reasons are too insignificant for serious
consideration ; and yet it is all the argument
Mr. Speaker, I was one with you ana
others still left in Congress who helped to
erect this barrier against the domination of
confederate interests iu the southern States"
and at this carpitol. I am not yet prepared
to tear it down. France laid the founda
tion of another revolution when she recalled
her Bourbon rnlers. I am not yet prepared
to follow this unwise example. Gentlemen
talV cf conciliation,, lorgiveness, magnan"'
iinity, clemency ! Sir, we have exhausted
all these sentiments in our treatment of the
country's enemies. Weakness, folly, cow
ardice, self-destruction, are more fitting
words for the action proposed.
The Professor in Shafts.
In the fifth chapter of the Rev. Elijah
Kellogg's college story, now in course of
publication as a serial in Oliver Optic's Mag
azine, appears the following droll narrative:
A singular illustration of the extent to
which theory often fails in practice was fur
nished by a venerated professor a most dis
tinguished mathematician, whose works are
still used as text books in many of our in
stitutions and occurred within the compass
ot ny own experience.
He went to Bethel; on his return he spent
the Sabbath at Lewiston. Monday morning
he was told the horse was sick. Neverthe
less, he started. The horse went a few rods,
fell down, and broke both thills. lie then
scut his wife home, and also sent to Bruns
wick for another horse and carriage to take
him and the broken chaise home. When
the driver came they lashed the two vehicles
together and started. All went well till thev
came to the first long steep lull between Iicw
iston and Brunswick ; on its summit they
held a consultation. The Professor had an
exaggerated idea of his strength, aud said,
"Mr. Chandler, h is too much forthehor.se
to hold th jse two carriages on this steep de
scent; take the horse out; I will get into
"Professor," replied Chandler, "the

girth." "But the hors;, Mr. Chandler it is too
much for the horse. Besides, being strong

"If the horse can" t hold it, you can't."
"Do you, sir, intend to jdace me, in point
of intelligence and knowldcdpe of mechan
ical forces below a horse ? I have made
mathematics the stu ly of a lifetime."
"I have no intention to he disrespectful,
sir; but 1 know that a horse understands
his own business which is handling a load
on a hill better than all the professors in
the United States. I was seiit up here by
my employer, who coufides iu me, to take
care of his property ; it you will take tho
business out of my hands, and be horse
yourself, you must be answerable for the
The Prosfessor had a habit, when a little
excited, of giving a nervous twitch at the
lappel of his coat with his right hand.
"I," he replied, with a most emphatic
twitch, "assume all responsibility."
The driver, in reality nothing loth to wit
ness the operation, took out the horse and
held him by the bridle; and the professor
getting into the shafts, took hold of them at
the ends. The forward carriage was just
descending the hill, and the hinder one a
little over the summit, when the Profressor
trod upon a rolling stone, which caused hiin
to plunge forward and increase the velocity
of his load so much that he was forced to
walk faster than he desired, and exchange
the slanting position with his shoulders
thrown well back and feet braced, which he
had at first adopted for a perpendicular
one. At length he was pushed into a run ;
the carriages were going at a fearful rate.
At the bottom of the bill was a brook ; on
each side, precipitous banks. The Profes
sor was between Scylla and Charybdis, going
nine feet at a leap. In order to cramp the
forward wheel, he turned suddenly to . the
right. The shafts of the forward carriage
went two feet into the bank, breaking both
of them short off; the lashings of the hind
er one slirped ; it ran into the forward one,
breaking the fender and both vehicles turn
ed over down hill with a tremendous crash,
the learned gentleman describing a parabola
one of his favorite figures and landing
some rods away. He rose from the earth a
dirtier and wiser man, knees skinned, pan
taloons torn, a piece of skin knocked off his
forehead, and his best hat flat as a pancake
underneath the hind carriage, and looking
round, he exclaimed, "Is it possible I could
have been so much deceived as to the mo
mentum? It was prodigious ?"
"I don't know anything about momen
tum," replied Chandler, "but I know some
thing about horses. I know it makes a
mighty difference about holding back a load
on a steep hill, whether a horse has two legs
or four, and whether he weighs a hundred
and seventy-five or twelve hundred pounds."
It cost the Professor thirty-seven dollars
aud ntty cents to ascertain how much horse
power he represented.
Knights of Pythias. The Order of
the "Knights of Pythias" is becoming so
widely spread and prosperous that the pub
lic have a reasonable curiosity to know some
thing of its character and purposes. Tho
ritual was first wtittcn and the Order worked
durinir the war as a bond of union between
army officers. After the war's close it was
rewritten, inoJitied, and thrown open to the
people, and has spread rapidly, particularly
within the past two years and in the Eastern
States. Its work and intent are very simi
lar to those ot the Masonic Order. Founded
on friendship, with the famous talc of Da
mon and Pythias as their example, the
members aim to relieve the suffering, suc
cor the unfortunate, care for the sick, bury
the dead, aud give their sympathy and ma
terial aid to the widows and orphans of each
other. There are now forty active lodges
in this State. The complete regalia con

Clearfield, Nov 10, lo'S
The Kidneys are two in number, sitnated at tho
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fat. and
consisting of three parts, vis : tbe Anterior, th
Interior, and the Eartcrior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for thn
urine and convey it to tbe exterior. Tbw exte
rior is a conductor al?o, terminating in a single
tube, and called the Ureter. The aretersare con
nected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various covering
or tissues, di-rided into parts, vii: the t'pper, th
Lower, the .Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper'
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire to
urin;e without the ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retaid. This frequently occur!
To cure those affections, we must bring into ac
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va-
riwud luiictiuus. if they ere neglected, Gravol or
Dropsy may ensue'.
The reader must also be made aware, that how-
erer slight may bathe attack, it is sure to aJeo-
the b-idily health and mental powers, as our flesh
and blood are supportod from thee sources.
Goct, on I'.nEi matisi! P.in occurring in the
loins U indicative of the above diseases. They
occur in persons disposed to acid stomach and
Tbe Gravel. Th gravel ensues from neglect
or improper treatment of tho kidneys These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain; it becomes
feverish, and sediment forma. It is from this de
posit that the stone is formed, aod gravel ensues.
Dropct is a collection of water in some parts of
the body, and bears'different same;, according to"
the ports affected, viz : when generally diffused
over the body, it is called Anasarca ; when of thsj
Abdomen, Aicite.; wen of the cbest, Uydrotho
rax. Tbkatvkt. Helmbold's highly concentrated
compound Extract Buchu is decidedly one of tho
test remedies for diseases of the bladder, kidneys',
gravel, dropsical swellings, rheumatism .and gouty
affections. Under this head we have arranged
Dysurie, or difBeulty and pain in passing water,
Scanty Sccrttion. or small and frequent dischar
ges of water; Strangury, or stopping of water;
Hematuria, or bloody trrfne ; Gout and Rheuma
tism of the kidneys, without any change in quan
tity, but Increase in color, er dark water. It was
alwey highly recommended by the late Dr.
Physick, in the;e affcetions.
This medicine increases the power of digestiori
and excites the absorbents into healthy exercise
by which tbe watery or calcareous depositions
and all unnatural enlargements, as well as pain
and inflammation are reduced, and it is taken by
men, women and children. Directions for use aod
Philadelphia, Pa.. Feb. 25, 1867.
H T, Xelm bold, Druggist:
Dear Sib : I have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bludder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and been under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but litile relief
Having seen your preparation extensively ad
vertised. I coiisulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Uuchn.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and eonie quite injurious; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting kcII, and determined to use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu,
mbebs and juniper berries, it occurred tome and
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
with his advice, after an examination of tbe arti
cle, and consulting again with the druggist, I
concluded to try it. 1 commenced its Use about
eight months ago, at which time I wae confined
to my room From tho Erst bt ttle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt
much like wrilingyou a full statement of my case
at that time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to yon
and core satisfactory to me
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy foffive mouths.
I have sot Ufed any now for three rnuBlbs, and
feel as in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buobu being devoid ot any onpleasant
taste and odor, a ni'-e tooie acd invigorator of the
system. I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.

be refers to the following gentlemen:
