The Singular Vote of Aut Tilbox.
From Harper's for Tecemb r, 1882.
During the time I spent at Amity I
made every effort to ingratiate myself
with the citizens of the place as the
bearer of an honorable, if not ot a pro
foundly aristocratic name; but in the
occasional brief notices taken of my ex
istence, I was designated only as "that
young man from Boston." Moreover,
to gain any idea of the sublime scorn,
the severe and overpowering ridicule,
implied in those simple words, ODe
should hear them as they fell from the
lips of the Amity town oracle, the oc
cupier of the arm-chair in the Amity
country store, Colonel Sonorous B.
Bacon. The Colonel's own pseudo
nym of "Snore" which might even be
supposed to bring a smile to the fea
tures of the uninitiated, was regarded
among his townsmen as a title of pon
derous dignity and respect.
'That young man from Boston,' said
Colonel Snore—to whom my insignifi
cant presence at the opposite end of
the store bad not been ns yet. on this
occasion revealed—'that young man
from Boston everdently has a towerin'
opinon of himself. I consider it a dooty
and a kindness to that young man to
take him do« n a peg.' To whieh the
others of the Colonel's audience, un
fortunately conscious of my presence,
although they graciously forebore to
make any audible assent, replied by an
expressive silence.
This imputation of inordinate con
ceit, I found afterward, was solely
attributable to the fact that, during my
stay in Amity, a severe cold in the
head caused me to have frequent re
course to some white linen pocket
handkerchiefs; while, as a still further
taunt to this unmanly weakness en my
part, the Colonel's own method of
blowing his nose, by the unaided
means of his thumb and forefinger,
was brought, I now remember, into
| loud and frequent requisition.
Yet despised aud ridiculed as I was,
I clung meekly to the ever-varying
theatre of interest afforded me by the
conduct of the Amity magnates, and
so that I might occupy a humble seat
in the auditorium of the country store,
bore the Colonel's derisive shafts
with silent resignation.
'lt is a beautiful and a tbrillin' sight,
gentlemen,' Colonel Snore began,
seated now amid a transient company of
drovers, his whole countenance
witb a splended consciousness oi the
occasion and of his own ability to
shine. But here I was siezed with
the fatal impulse to sneeze. I drew
out my despised pocket-handkerchief
with a depreciating gesture. But the
Colonel paused.
'Been to Boston lately?' he inquir
of the group, with an expressive wink
and a slight inclination of the thumb
in my direction.
'Wa'al, yes, tolable so,' one answer
'I boar they 've been a tryin' to get
it incopperated as a city—eh?' the
Colonel continued, indulging in a still
more vastly fncetious play of the eye
'Wft'al, yes, I believe they made it
out some little time since,' replied the
willing votary of his heartless wit.
'Glad to hear it!' exclaimed Colonel
Snore with loud emphasis—'glad to
hear it! Let perseverance and virter
ous industry have their reward.'
Having paused to crush me in one
fleeting moment of amusement, the
Colonel now resumed that thread of
his discourse to which the pompous
gravity of his tone had been so evi
dently adapted:
'lt is a beautiful and thrillin' sighti
gentlemen, amidst the party strife
which is devastatin' our country, the
traud and pussonal ambition ragin' in
the capertals of our land, to turn for a
moment to view the perlitical situa
tion as it is here in our little couutry
town of Amity. Yes, gcutlemen, we
may not be fastijeus, we may not be
yet incopperated as a city, but we can
thank Heaven that there is yet one
Elace in our iaud onbliglited by the
and of perlitical corruption, and
where patterotism is still a name.
Not, gentlemen, but what we have
had here in Amity some very closely
contested elections, and on some occa
sions 1 do not deny to have witnessed
no small display of party spirit; but
this is owing not so much, gentlemeu,
to our discord as to our uquanimity."
Sech is the uquanimity of our vote
here in Amity that we have become
distinguished fur and wide lor our ties.
And in our caukerscs I have frequently
heard it brought to a point of issoo,
not to defeat this party or to carry
that party, but, 'Countrymen and fel
ler citizens, let us on this momenchous
occasion nerve ourselves to the con
flict, brace up our scattered cohorts,
and do our durudest to avide a tie!'
'As clost a perlitical contest, per
haps, gentlemen, as I ever witnessed
occurred here some year or more ago,
when Jedge Marlborough and me,
one and severally, commoted ag'iqst
each other for the j'iut olljeo of Town
Clark and Keegistrar of the town of
Amity. Though often urged to it by
my feller-citizens, I had always previ
ously refused to run, a lukertive busi
ness of my own —ownin' perhaps
the largest tobacco farm in the State,
gentlemen—havin' made it ompossible
for me to engage to any extent in pol
ertics. But Beardsley came to me,
and says he- 'Snore, tl;e ft;te of the
Republican party of the town of Amity
is a-hangin' on your hands. You aud
you only can afford to meet the Jedge
on this campaign.' Jedge Marlbor
ough bein', with perhaps one excep
tion the richest man in Amity. 'I
have carried the Kerpublican party on
my shoulders for five years,' says
Bearslev, 'and should continnoo in it
as my dooty and my priverlige. But
my tobacco crop has gone back on me
this year, and 1 kno.w my figger. I
know that J ain't competont to the
'Beardsley,' says I, 'at what figger
do you place the impendin' election of
the town of Amity?'
'Snore,' says Beardsley, 'patterot
ism may rage high, and there's no
makin' percise calkcrations I put it,
Suo e, at two hundred dollars.
'Beaidsley,'says I, 'accept my note.'
'Snore,' says Beardskv, 'that's pat
tcrotie, and its munifeicent; but no,
it won't do. There's got to be some
degree of popplearity. Since I fore
closed on Tim O'Rian I've lost my
hold on the Irish element. I thought
o'runnin' Jones, but since his darter
got the deestrict school away from
Wright's darter there's been a split in
the party. No, Snore, the issoo lies
with you and you only, and you must
meet the Jedge.'
'Beardsley', says I, amusin' myself
by taken' a last desprit measure, '-in
considerin' a canderdate for any offiae,
we must consider his qaalerfieaca
tions for that office. My extensive
business responserbilities and dooties
as a man of property has not as yet
given me no time to pay much atten
tion to the art of penmanship.'
'Snore,' says Beardsley, 'ef you
can't icrite you can talk.'
'Wa'al, gentlemen, there didn't
seem to be nothin' further to be said,
cancus was held, and I was nommera
ted; and after positively refusin' the
nommernation, my onwillingness was
declined, and I was acknowledged to
be run, after the usual form.
'Gentlemen, there was various rea
sons why that campaign was calker
lated to be a clost one. For more'n a
year young Ilec Aspinwall, up on the
mountain, simultaneous with Marl
Junior here—Jedge Marlborough's son
—not to speak of our little Parson
Waters and an ondefinite number of
others, had all been a-holdin' court to
my daughter Fairblow It's a singer
ler fact, gentlemen, that before I mar
ried the present Mrs. Bacon, although
the town was full of purty gals, lively
and interestin' creeturs, she was the
one sought after. And jest so it was
with our Fairblow. By the time that
£al got to be sixteen years old sho was
so primmatoorly handsome and smart,
and so deuced fuscernatin' in her ways,
that her ma and me —whose boodwar
idjines the parlor—on Sunday nights
in especial, almost despaired o' keepin'
an her till she come o' age. But on that
p'int Mrs. Bacon was strong, Fair
blow bein' our only child—which
Mrs. Bacon on one occasion re
jrettin', 'Mrs. Bacon,' says I,
madam a woman that has raised
sich a darter as that has done her
'Of all the pursooers of my darter's
iffections, I was inclined atone time to
;hiuk most fav'rably of Marl Junior as
i well ballasted young man—though a
member of the Dimmocracy —and car
rying an old head for business. But
Mrs. Bacon—and to me, gentlemen, a
woman's penetration in such matters
will never cease to be surprisen'—Mrs.
Bacon informed that if Fairblow ever
consented to any of 'em, it would be
to our young Republican, Hec Aspin
wall. 'Your reasons, Mrs. Bacon,'
3ays I, and her reasons?' 'They are
proberbly jest as foolish, Snore,' says
Mrs. Bacon, resortin' to that playful
mood in which Mrs. Bacon and
myself sometimes indulges, as them for
which I married you.'
'Wa'al, Hec was as handsome a dog
as ever you see, as tall and straight as
x Norwejjan pine, with a black mus
tache a-swoopin' down under as
Btraight-cut a nose as ever adorned a
stattoote, but somehow it seemed as
though Fairblow had fairly took a
notion ag'iu him. She had a good
word for Marl or Waters or any o' the
rest, but when it come to Hec, he was
too big or too rude or somethin', and
always a-fiushiu' up at him as ef she
was mad when be come in, until I swan
I sometimes felt like takin' up on the
young man's part. HowsQmever, the
dog was puffectly able to manage his
own affairs, mind ye, and there's no
kuowiu' what might 'a happened, ef it
hadn't been for Mrs. Bacon's super
□ateral instinct as to how things stood;
and in spite o' Marl's wooin' and Hec's
threatenin' and little Waters's whinin',
that onparalleled woman put her foot
dowu strong that Fairblow shouldn't
leave her father's house with no man
till she come o' age.
'lt chanced that Fairblow was jest a
iawnin' into her eighteenth year,
Bfentlemen, when I competed with the
jedge on the campaign before mention
ed ; and it appears to me that it was
the very night of the caucus—a singer
larly beautiful and starlight night,
gentlemen—that Marl and llec and the
rest on 'em was a settin' around in the
parlor afterwards, and Marl and Hec
was giviu' it to each other party sharp
on polertics, and a-gittin'omcomf'tably
warm, teasin' Fairblow as to which
she'd keep company with on some per
tickler occasion, until by-and-by the gal
Hushes up and gives a sort of a 'Now I
dare ye !' look to Hec, and Rays she,
'Of course I goes with the winnin'
party !' And the minit she'd said it she
give Hec the first sorry look that ever
I see ; but Hec stretches himself up,
'And so you shall, Fairblow,' says he.
And so you shall, Fairblow,' says
little Marl; and them two
ous riz, and went out
' Gentlemen, in the campaign that
follered, wherever I see fit to lend an
old friend and constittuent a dollar, the
Jedge lent him two. Where the Jedge
lent two, Hec lent three. Where Hec
lent three, Marl Junior lent four, leavin'
in many sech cases a consid'able sur
plus of five dollars to be supplied by
myself. Where I sought popplearity
with the Irish element by a six months'
release on a fore-closure, the Jedge
sent a new image over to the Catholic
church, say nothin' of atteudin' papal
services four weeks rcgerlar with his
wife and darters. Where I obliged a
neighbor by the temperrary loan of a
hoe, the Jedge accomerdated with a
spade, which responded to by a plough
on my part, the Jedge in turn reciprer
cated by a boss-rake, until the Jedge'e
domains and mine was as fairly dernqd
ed of all farcin' appurternunces as
though we'd been swep' over by the
Qld Testament deluge. But when
Griggs came in one day to borrer my
bell-crown, Mrs Bacon declared that
there was bounds, and that they had
now been reached, and I was obliged
to take Griggs outside, and compermise
with him for a soft felt, to which,
though somewhat wqrn, I have no
hefjertatiou in •ayin', gentlemen, I had
l>ecome pertickerlarlv attached.
"By the fifth day of that campaign
I see that all there was left for me wa.s
the honor, the other perrogatives beia'
prev'ously more'n swallowed up ia the
defense of my country. Howsumever,
havin' once set out, I was not the
man to flinch in my dooty; and as the
Jedge hounded and anticerpated me,
so there was no perlitical measure
took by the Jedge but what I and iny
constituents riz up to defeat it.
'Gentlemen, I wish the whole w>rld
might pause to witness an election like
that which I am about to relate to you
as havin' took place in our little coun
try town of Amity.
'From a night unbroken by any In
. cordent, except for the continual sound
of cannonadin', and a slight skirmish
between the Boys in Blue, headed by
Hec A spin wall, and the Boys iu White,
led on by Marl Junior—in which some
was oncapacttated, but no serious loan
to life or limb—the day rose calm and
bright. Ere Pho&bus bad yet fully rix

believe there was an able-bodied voter
in the town of Amity but what had
arrove pumtual to the polls, while the
lame and the halt aud the blind from
fur and near was a-bein' escorted
thither in teams dispatched for the pur
pose by the reprersentatives of our re
spective factions ; but I regard it as a
stain upon our history, gentlemen, yes,
as an infamous blot upon our history,
that, in the ondue crowd and excite
ment of the hour, Jedge Marlborough '
was even known to employ the Amity i
town hearse. And I wish that I might j
add, gentlemen, that his attentions was
confined exclusively to the outside seat.
'Gentlemen, it is not the practice at
our elections to cast a hurried and on
premeditated vote, and then fly from
the scene of action. Sech is not the
brotherly feclin' which has always an
ncrmated the voters of the town of
Amity. Many was the friendly dis-'

that iysters was now ready, and our I
stomachs—which had only been sua-1
tained hitherto on a little weak cider,
I do assure you, gentlemen—hastened ;
to partake of them delicious varmints.
'Gentlemen, when I say that I am
fond of iysters, I speak warmly, but
with limertations. But the capacity
displayed for iysters by some of my j
constittuents that day, I do not heser
tate to say, was thoroughly alarmin.'
Gentlemen, I consider a quart bowl
full of them delightful insects, well
seasoued with a quantity of crackers, a
most nourishin' compound, grateful
aud satisfyin' to the needs of men. But |
when it oomes to two, three, four, and,
yes, gentlemen, in some insternces, six
bowls full, devoured by a single indi-'
vidooal, I am disposed to tremble for
my country aud my cause. Ilowsum

and as often as a reprersentativo of my |
own party was borne over to partake of
that mis'able cider dispensed by the ;
conßtittuents of Jedge Marl, so often
was some weak and totterin' member
of the Dimmocracy led triumphcrntly
up to partake of Republican iysters.
Everywhere ilec and Marl Junior was
conspicuous a cullin' detachments from
the ranks of their rerspective enemies,
and leadin' their scattered cohorts on
to victory.
'I have stood in the thick of battle
in defense of my country's cause, but,
gentlemen, never have I witnessed a
more thrillin' contest than that which
I am now relatiu' to you. Never,
gentlemen, have I beheld sech an on
paralleled display ot patterotism. Of
the supply of the enemy's ammernition
in the shape of sech cider as I have

'Perhaps the most curious incerdent
connected with this eventful day, or,
indeed, as ever occurred in all my per
litical experience, is what I shall reveal
to you at the close of this narrative
concerning the singerlar vote of Aut
Tilbox. J*'or the present I will only
say that Aut is the derscendant of an
ancient race which assumes to have
suffered much pecunerrary loss through
the war, bein' now some sixty years
old, of a tall and corperlant physike,
and though a nomernal member of the
Dimmocracy, has long, as to his prac
tercal vote, be considered more'n waver

day led enticin'ly from iysters to cider,
and from cider back ag'in to iysters,
ontil, irrespective ol party issoo, I was
about to interfere in the general cause
of humanerty. But Hec assured me
that he had known him to stand fur
more on prev'ous elections, and I
watched his perceedin's at last in
silence with a solicertude which was
only exceeded by my amazement and
cur'osity. From iysters to cider, and
from cider back ag'in to iysters, Aut
was winnin'ly and engagin'ly meander

mernant figger in the general confusion,
and one to which I confess, gentlemen,
my eyes had now become glued with
aq unaccountable fascernatioa.

Concluded in our next.
The Republican Defeat.
The severity of tbe rude shock
which Republicans experienced on
Tuesday is becoming toned down by
sober reflection. Disappointed voters
will follow tbe example of tbe mari
ner in the prologue of Webstor's fa
mous speech in reply to Haynu,
"who tossed foi many days iu thidt
weather, and on an unknown sea,
arails himself of the first pause in
the storm, the earliest glance of tbe
Bun, to take bis latitude, and ascertain
how far the elements hare drireu him
from his true course." After this has
been dune, an examination of tbe ship
is ia order, and the discovery will be
made that tbe ship is all right, sound
in all her timbers, but like a certain
ancient vessel on its way to an eastern
seaport, a Jonah will be found to bare
been the cause of this terrible fury of
the deep seas. Profouud relief will
take tbe place of fear when this dis
turbing, obnoxious passenger is found
to be stowed snugly away in tbe belly
of the Democratic whale.
The Republican defeats in Pennsyl
vania, New York and all the rest of
the States, bear this unmistakeable
meaning; that a very large minority
of Republicans will not put up with
broken promises, with party misman
agement, with selfish uses of official
position or with autocratic dictation ot
nominatians, no matter how honest,
worthy or capably the candidates may
be. The vigilent, untnunmeled minor
ity cries a halt to political abuses be
fore the disease becomes too deep for
the surgeon's knife.
The wouod that has been inflicted is
happily a healthy one and will soon
heal. The crushing blow dealt po
litical bossism all over the Nation,
lifted at the same time the Republican
party back to its heroic foundations,
built by Lincoln, Sumner, Wade,
Qiddings, Garfield and the rest of the
immortals who "coined tbeir heart's
blood" to make it imperishable. It can
not expect to exist if it become* untrue,
disloyal to its creed, if it becomes the
companion of political debauchery, and
condoner of fraud.
No party in tbe history of the world
has accomplished as much or become
as powerful as the Republican party
of this Nation, and no party ever had
within it, so suro and so relentless a
monitor. It has sounded warning
upon warning at the approach of un
clean things, which if heedod, would
hare prevented the castigation receiv
ed on Tuesday. If this will not have
the desired effect, a still more over
whelming defeat may be looked for.
There is nothing local about it, and
the moral of it may better be swallow
ed now, than to wait until later when
the stomach will perhaps not be in a
condition to digest it.— Oretnsburg
The Dead Alive,
NBW YORK, NOT. 10. —An extraor
dinary case of suspected animation £B
exciting much interest at West Brigh
ton, Staten Island. On Monday a
young man named Michael Connelly,
aged twenty-eight, died suddenly. The
body was embalmed, placed in a coffin,
and arrangements were made for the
funeral to-day. When the undertaker
reached the house; at the hour appoint
ed for the funeral, he was thunder
struck by the announcement th»t the
supposed corpse was still alive. It wag
found that tho body had leaned over on
one side, and that the face was regain
ing its natural color. The undertaker
at first rejected the idea, and ascribed
the color to the preservative quality of
the embalming mixture, but finally
recommended that a physician be seat
for. Shortly after, I)rs. Nalzer and
Ambrose arrived and held a consulta
tion, and it was decided to defer the
funeral and await the result. Tbe
mother declares that she will keep her
boy here for the next ten years, aye,
forever, as long as he keeps his color as
he does! The scene at the time defied
description. Women screamed, men
rushed to an fro and drove away the
carriages. All day tbe crowdof curiosi
ty seekers attempting to gain admis
sion to the house has been enormous.
The latest reports this erening state
that the body continues to regain color
and while the family are confident that
life remains, the physicians admit that
tbey are greatly perplexed.

Influence of the Soil on Health.
Tbe influence of the soil upon the
health of those liying upon it, is
brought out very plainly during the
prevalence of epidemic diseases. That
malarial disease (like internment

ready accepted; and recent investiga
tions show pretty conclusively that
the germs of Cholera, Abdomnial Ty
phus, Yellow Fever, and the plague
are in some way connected with tbe
soil, which is "daily corroborated by
letters from all parts of the country,
stating the marvelous effect Peruna
has on those diseases, and in their
