Six persons were lately killed dur
ing a fight in a bar-room in New York
city. While to get rid of such fellows
is always such an inestimable blessing
that the means are not likely to be
closely criticised, the personal safety of
such better men as occasionally drink
liquor demands that a different sort of
place should be selected for fights in
which bullets meander aimlessly about
from pistols held by drunken hands.
Every man who keeps a bar know
that quarrels are more than likely
to take place in hi.s establishment, aud
he should be prepared to maintain ord r
in his own house. If through weakness
or cowardice he permits fatal disturb
ances his license should be revoke I
and himself excluded by law from hi->

THE reeent poisoning of a whole
family in Canada, from eating cab
bages, upon which it is supposed
Paris green had beeb sprinkled, should
prove a warning to farmers against a
careless use ~f this class of insect rem
edies. Paria green is largely com
posed of arsenic, is almost insoluble in
water, retaining its active principle
for years, and a very little of it may
prove fatal. It is well enough to em
ploy it upon potato tops, and the foli
age of such other plants as are not
used for food for man or animals, but
its use upon, or even near any other
kind of vegetation, especially in the
kitchen garden, is fraught with danger
There are plenty of useful means by
which the cabbage worm may bo de
stroyed or its ravages lessened, with
out resort to violent poisons. In the
case to which reference is made, there
was fortunately but one death, though
live persons were affected.

WE have received from the pub
li.slier* of "Golden Day*'' the first two
numbers of their publication. It i* a
paper for boys and srirls. We have ex
amined the first two numbers and as
far as they are concerned can say,
that it is the best paper of the kind we
have ever seen. In his circular to us •
the publisher very truthfully remarks: j
You will agree with us that one of the
most potent fountains of crime is the j
vicious literature for the young, which
is seen on every news stand, aud Hoods
the country. These papers directly
instigate crime and their extinction
would be a blessing to humanity, but
as there exists no means ol suppres
sing them, ami as our children will
read, it follows that the best antidote
is to furnish the youth with good
wholesome reading, presented in itf
most attractive form with a view of j
winning them away from the corrupt
ing papers, to that which entertains
and instructs. As the press has been i
unanimous in its condemnation of the
corrupting literature referred to, we
trust it will be equally ready to say a
good word in behalf of our enterprise.
The object of "Golden Days*' is so
clearly defined and will be so consci
entiously pursued, that we feel it i.-* en
titled to the countenance and support
of all who have the welfare of the
young at heart.

SOME thousands of workmen ordi
narily engaged in a single trade in New

tory financial condition which the peo
ple in their homely phraseology des
cribe as "living upon the interest of

dred pianonrikers left their labor be
cause of a dispute with their employ
ers, and a little more than three thous
and, as it is estimated, where thereupon
dismissed by other employers in recog
nition of the fact that the difficulty
over which the first step was taken is
a common one anil applies equally in
all the different shops, and that if the
laborers arc triumphant on their first
field they will demand that the princi
ple involved in their victory shall be
applied in all shops. Not far from four
thousand are out of employment now,
therefore and it is thought the number
will be increased within a few dtys by
another thousand to he excluded from
shops that have not yet acted upon the
demand of the employers' union.

One of the craft has found a new way

Being the inventor of a certain des
cription of cotton cordage which the
Secretary of the Navy obstinately re
fuses to make use of, this gentleman
betakes himself to Congress, enlists
tbe sympathies of Southern Senators j
on the ground that this is a home man- j
ufacture of a Southern product, and :
induces the Senate to pass, as it did .
last Thursday with all solemnity, a
bill postively directing the Secretary
to test the invention. Mr. Conkling
was about right when he said the
other day that legislation of this kind
is "degrading" to Congress, if the
Secretary has declined to test the cord
age, as a friend of the bill has stated,
it was probably for some good reason. ;
The bill is therefore an argument |
against the invention, and the passage {
of the bill in necessarily a matter fori

ALL over the country str kes among
workmen areeitlier actually inaugu
rated or threatened. These were to be
expected from the rapid improvement
in business, which has raised the price
of manufactured goods from 25 to 100
per cent , and from the natural reluc
tance of manufacturer- to sliaie their
ncreased profits with their employes,
in many places wages have been
raised considerably, and it is to hoped
that some compromise may, in other
cases, be speedily effected, by which
the stoppage of the wheels, of business
may be prevented or removed.
Strikes are lamentable occurrences at
best, causing a world of sulTt ring to
the strik'-rs. no small losses to be em
ployers. and a s.ij amount of ill-feeling
between the two classes whose friend
ly co-operation is necessary to each
others' prosperity. According to the
Statistics ol the Massachusetts State
Bureau of Labor, out of 159 strikes
recorded in that State, 100 were fail
ures, lf» were compromised and only
1 S were successful—a poor show for
strikers. Vet had the employers com
promised matters, it is not improba
ble their gains would have been at
least as great, and the prosperity of
the S ate would certainly have been
greater. It is not the accumulation of
money in the hands of a few in a State
or Nation, that renders its inhabitants
happy and prosperous, hut its distribu

THE surplus of imports over exports
last month amounted t<> nearly £15,-

to $93,500,000, while the exports did
not exceed $ i 0.500.000. The only
thing likely to offset such an unfavora

increased export of grain, with the

the United kingdom : and if they do so j
for twelve weeks from March 1, Great j
Britain will have a stock of about 4,-
000,000 bushels left by the Ist of June j
to meet the requirements from its own
harvest. Keeping in view the fact, that
the average consumption of the United
Kingdom is about 2,400,000 bushels
per week, we see there is a fair chance j
of the whole of our stuck of grain, j
which amounts at present to 25,000,-
000 bushels, being drained much sooner \
than is generally anticipated at present, i
Should this be the ca-e, wheat is not f
unlikely to reach by the middle of |
April the price of $2 a bushel, and to j
change the present proportion between I
our weekly imports and exports.
Answer This.
Did you ever know any person to
be ill, wit hout inaction of the Stomach,
Liver or Kidneys, or did you ever
know one who was well when either
was obstructed or inactive; and did
vou ever know or hear of any case of
the kind that Hop Bitters would not
cure. Ask your neighbor this same
question — Time x.

J/c.ssr.-\ Editor." —Having noticed
communications from other places con
cerning school exhibitions, I have
thought proper to give an account of
an exhibition held at Simpson school.
No. 1, Oakland township, on the even
ing of March 19th.
At an early hour the house was
crowded with attentive spectators.
The performances were exceptionally
good, and were conducted by the
teacher, Mr. Bare, in such a manner as
to call forth the appreciation of all who
were present.
The performances eon.-isted of vocal
music, reading, declamations and dia
The most prominent performances
were a class in medley reading, and
also classes in concert reading. Miss
Phillips of Millerstown recited "Cur
few shall not King To-night." in a
most admirable manner. Mr. Cun
ningham. the teacher of Herdman
school, gave a declamation, entitled the
"Sleeping Sentinel." By the manner
of Mr. Cunningham's delivery we have
reason to congratulate the people of
the Ilerdman district in their having
with them during this winter a teacher
of such intelligence and elocutionary
The teacher, Mr. Bare, declaimed
"Burns' Maniac," in a very apprecia
tive manner. A SPECTATOR.
