Beautiful rain of Summer
Trickling down the pane.
Falling with softest murmer
Into the heated brain ;
Pouring its gushing life-drops
Down on the parching sod ;
Making each flower and grass-blade
Spring up to worship God.
Beautiful rain of Summer!
Never was strain so sweet
As thy refreshing murmur
After the dust and heat.
O! how the cold drops patter
Down on the thirsting earth,
Calling a thousand memories
Up to a second birth.
How the dear days of childhood
Come with their rainbow hues !
How thy prismatic colors
Brighten the faded views!
How the dear, vanished voices
Sound on the heatt again,
LliDgling with thy sweet chorus
Beautiful Summer ra'm !
Beautiful rain of Summer!
Bringing the welcome breeze ;
Washing the dut of the city
Off from the grateful trees :
Rippling down the gutters,
Gambling down the eaves,
Dropping a shower of diamonds
Over the emerald leaves !
Filling the lowly washtub
Full of the pearly flood ;
Easirg the weary shoulder.
Cooling the heated blood :
Blessing the black man's hovel,
Blessing the herds and flcks,
Spreading the soft green mosses
Over the barren rocks.
Gushing as from Mount nareb,
Stiuck by our Father's wand.
Bringing a flood of blessing
Over the scorching land ;
Drenching the parching valley.
Soothing the bed of pain.
Filling the world with beauty-
Beautiful Summer rain !
Beautiful rain of Summer,
Falling like words of love.
With thy delicious music,
- Down from the heavens "above :
Where is the thankless spirit.
Where is the hardened brain.
Lifting no glad thanksgiving
For the refreshing rain ?
God of the blessed rain drops !
God of the boundless sea!
Give me a thankful spirit
Ever lo worship Thee,
Thanks to the clouds of morning,
Thanks for the ripened grain.
And the love that falls on the spirit
Like the blessed Summer rain !
A Shrewd Editok. At a Welsh
celebration in New York, Dr. Jones told
the following amusing anecdote :
" The ppcaker said the editors were
like other ehrcwd men who have to live
with their eyes and ear open. He related
the story of an editor who started a paper
in a new village in the West. The town
was infested with gamblers whose pre
sence was a source of annoyance to the
citizens, who told the editor that if he
did not come out against them they would
not patronize his paper. He replied that
he would give them a smasher' next day.
Sure enough his next issue contained the
promised smasher.' On the following
morning the redoubtable editor, with scis
sors in hand, was seated in his sanctum
cutting out news, when in walked a large
man with a club in his hand, and demand
ed to know if the editor was in. No,
sir, was the reply, he has stepped out ;
take a seat and read the papers ; he will
return in a minute.' Down sat the indig
nant man of cards, crossed his legs, with
his club between them, and commenced
reading a paper. In the meantime the
editor quietly vnmooscd down stairs, and
at the landing below he met another ex
cited man with a cudgel in his hand, who
asked if the editor was in. 'Yes, sir,'
was the prompt response. lou will find
him seated up stairs reading a newspaper.'
The latter on entering the room, with a
furious oath commenced a violent assault
upon the former, which was resisted with
equal ferocity. The fight was continued
until they both rolled to the foot of the
stairs, and pounded each other to their
The Bishop of W'urtzburg once . asked
a sprightly 6hepherd boy :
"What are you doing here, my lad T
"How much do you get !"
"One florin a week."
"I also am a shepherd," continued the
Bishop, "but I have much better salary."
'That may all be, bat then I suppose
yoa have more swine under your care,
innocently replied the boy.
ALIKE, UPON THE
The Douglas Monument.
; The first section of the monument -is
now about half completed. The foun
dations are entirely finished, and the
tomb is partially complete. The struct
ure has been carried up to about the height
of seventeen feet. When completed" it
will be one hundred feet in height The
diameter of the circular platform base is
fifty-two feet, and two and a half feet high.
Another base, with steps the same the
sides concave or curved inwards, also two
and a half feet high is laid upon the
circular base. The sepulchre, with four
projecting pedestals standing out from the
corners, and connected by archways 13
twenty feet square and eleven feet high,
with walls five feet thick. It has an arch
ed ceiling and a chamber within, ten feet
square. In the center is a 6arcophaus,
or receptacle, for the remains of Douglas,
which will be visible through a bronze
door, six feet and a half high and three
feet wide. Resting upon the sepulchre is
a pedestal twenty-one feet high, with a
base fifteen feet square, lapping upon and
supported by the walls of the tomb. A
complete column, forty-three feet in length,
six feet at the base, and three and a half
feet at the top, is placed on the pedastal.
A cap and spear six feet high forms the
cap and base for a colloesal bronze statue
of Douglas, twelve feet high.
Surrounding the sepulchre will be four
seated symbolical figures, life-size, of light
marble, one representing Illinois holding a
medallion likeness of Douglas. 11 y the
side is a sheaf of wheat and the State
arms. I he oilier is America, with the
shield ; History, reclining on a tablet,
and Fame, with the wreath and the trum
pet Over the entrance stands an eagle,
and on the base of the pede stal above are
four bas-reliefs, representing the progress of
civilization in t he West : First, the Wil
derness, with Indians hunting, and their
wigwams in the distance ; then the pioneers
with the cabin, men ploughing and cut
ting down trees ; then Commerce, repre
sented by a ship, bales, and boxes, and
Science, represented by the locomotive,
the railroad, and tho telegraph. The
fourth relief renresents Education, by a
group of children and a school-master,
with the Capitol building and a church in
The statue represents Douglas as stand
ing by the Constitution and the Union,
the fasces', or Union by his right, and the
Constitution in his left hand.
The speakers stand, at the inauguration
ceremonies, will be erected immediately
beside the monument, and will accommo
date about seven or eight hundred people.
This will be reserved exclusively for mem
bers of Congress and other distinguished
individuals who come to take part in the
ceremonies. In front of the stand will
be accommodations for about sixty report
ers. The space in front of the stand will
afford plenty of room for the many thou
sands who will be present listening to the
addresses, and the nature of the ground
will render the voices of the speakers per
fectly audible to those who may be forced to
take their positions a considerable distance
from the stand.
At each corner of the grave will be
erected a pillar about thirty feet in height.
r rom these uprights will spring four arches,
which will be draped with black and white,
and festooned with roses. Hound the
base of the pillars will be arranged a num
ber of flags, and all tho way up they will
be draped with black and white, and with
wreaths of roses and nags. I he grave
will be covered with natural flowers. In
front of the grave will be placed upon a
pedestal Volk's splendid marble bust of
Douglas, and model of the monument.
There will be no other decorations of any
kind on the groud.
These form the pt'ncipal part of the
preparations that have yt been made for
the great occasion. w nater other ar

HIGH AND THE LOW, THE RICH AND
Procession of Negro Worshipers.
"Toots," chief-marshal of the nigger
heads after circulating flaming hand-billa
for the last two weeks, and having the
drum corps to parade our streets early
this morning was totally unable to get any
thing like a crowd together to go to Me
chanicsburg, to hear that modern brain
less humbug John W. Geary. The
entire procession formed in Third street
in front of the Garnet League-rooms. A
friend from our door counted 78 persons,
we counted only 72, including drum
corps, and all the boys and strappers con
nected with the affair. Of these, more
than three-fourths were from country
towns. "Toots," looked bad, he had
been put to great expense and trouble,
and confidentially expected that the town
would turn out in its might. But, every
body knows that Geary is below par with
the republicans here. None but those
who swallow the negro whole, would turn
out, while dozens of true men of their
party repudiate the free suffrage candi
date, and though free transportation, free
meals, and other inducements were ottered
less than thirty men from Ilarrisburg
could be induced to join the procession.
It is well known, that the speech of Geary
(if a speech it can be called,) at the Lo
chiel Iron Works in which he boldly ad
vocated FREE SUFFRAGE, NEGRO F.QUAUTV
&c , has disgusted the people everywhere.

Facts ix Natcral Histort The
rattle-snake finds a superior foe in the
deer and black-snake. Whenever a buck
discovers a rattle-snake in a situation
which invites attack, he loses no time in
preparing for battle. He makes up to
within ten or twelve feet of the snake,
and leaps forward, and aims to sever the
body of the snake with its sharp bifurca
"ted hoofs. The first onset is most com
monly successful ; but, if otherwise, the
buck repeats the trial until he cuts the
snake in twain. The rapidity and fatali
ty of his manoeuvers leave but a slight
chance for its victim either to escape, or
to inject his poison into his more alert an
tagonist. The black-snake is also more
than an equal competitor against the rattle-snake.
Such is the celerity of motion
not only in running, but in entwining
itself round its victim, that the rattle
snake has no way of escaping from its
fatal embrace. WThen the black and
rattle-snakes are about to meet for battle
the former darts forward at the height of
his speed, and strikes at the neck of the
latter with unerring certainty, leaving a
foot or two of the upper part of his body
at liberty.' In an instant he encircles
him, within five or six folds; he then
stops and looks the strangled and gasping
foe in the face to ascertain the effect pro
duced upon his corseted body. If he
show signs of life, the coils are multiplied
and the screws tightened the operator
all the while narrowly watching the coun
tenance of the helpless victim. Thus the
two remain thirty or forty minutes the
executioner then slackens one coil, no
ticing at the same time whether any signs
of life appear; if so, the coil is resumed
until the incarcerated wretch is complete
ly dead. The moccasin-snake is de
stroyed in the same way.
Abuse of the soldiers. Geary in a
recent speech at York, said that the sol
diers who assembled at Ilarrisburg on the
first of August, were "Shysters and !
Cowards, Skulkers and Hospital Bum
mers." To say the least of it, -such
language was very unbecoming in one
who aspires to the dignified position of
Governor of Pennsylvania. But what
Bhall be said of a man who applies such
epithets to the bravest of the brave,
sitaply because they do not choose to cast
their votes for him ? For instance, take
the representatives of our own county in
that Convention. Who will dare to re
peat what Geary has said, in regard to
Thos. II. Lyons, Lawrence Defibaugh,
Philip Huzzard, Jeremiah Thompson and
Philip Leonard? these men served from
the beginning of the war to its close, and
did their whola duty wherever their pres
ence was required, whether in the ex
hausting march, in the deadly breach, or
amid the dangers and horrors of the field
of battle. Let the soldiers remember how
Geary has slandered their comrndei. -
VOL. 13 NO. 27.
Radicausm Exploding. We call
attention to the infuriated resolutions
adopted by the Pennsylvania Radicals in
their Convention at Heading, on Wednes
day. "The man made President by J.
Wilkes Booth," is their decorous designa
tion of the President of the United States,
and they speak of the Democratic party
in language equally dignified and tasteful.
This brutal ferocity is excited because th
President adheres to the policy proclaimed
to the world by both houses of Congress
the first year of the war, founded on tb
explicit language of the Constitution of
the United States, and cordially indorsed,
by the most respected statesmen of the
country and the most brilliant soldiers of
the war. It is the policy of General
Grant, as well as of President Johnson,
which calls forth this torrent of indecent
virulence and vituperation. It has been
publicly sanctioned by eminent jurists like
Judge Curtis, who pronounced tho ad
mired dissenting opinion in the Dred
Scott case, and Thomas Ewing, the ablest
surviving contemporary of Webster and
Clay, to whose school of politics he be
longed ; by accomplifcbcd scholars and
statesmen, like Mr. Winthrop and Wil
liam C. liivcs: by eminent citizens re
markable for their moderation, good
judgment and great stake in the public
tranquility, like Hamilton Fish and Wil
liam B. Astor ; and, though hist not least,
by the distinguished generals who have
signed tho call to the great Soldiers' Con
vention. And it is men like these, who, together
j with the President, are aspersed in such
blackguard langnage by such fellows a

A Rich Sermon. Where is the man
with a harp of a thousand strings ?
The following extract from a sermon
will be recognized at a glance by 6omo
readers here at home. It loses much of
humor, because we cannot put in the ap
propriate gestures that accompany it :
"My fiiends, sin makes the purtiest
young man in the world ugly-ah. And I
tell you how I know-ah. I was coming
up to church to-day, when I saw some
men in the road.nh, and though one of
them, the purtiest young man I ever saw
in my life-ah. And as I drew nigh unto
a place they called taw, and they mavel-ed-ah.
And when he marveled, he jump
ed up and flapped his hands like a rooster,
does his wings and says, I wish I may
be d d if I haint l'at-ah ! And oh, my
friends, then I thought that he was tha
ugliest mar. I ever saw in ray life-ah.
And I opened my mouth and spake unto
him thus: Sajs I, 'young man, this is
not the way to salvation.
"And he said' 'Look here old boss, if
you had been salivated as bad as I was,
you would not love to hear talk of sa'va-tion-ah.
"And now, my fiiends, if that 3'oung
man said he was fat he told a lie, for ho
was lean as that hungry-looking sister
over thar, that's always praying so pious
ly when the hat is being passed around
ah. "And, my friends, if that young man
had not bocn blinded by sin, he never
could a mistuck mc for an old hoss-ah."
The Printer's Litany. From want
of gold, from wives that scold, from maid
ens old, by sharpers "sold" preserve us !
From foppish sneers, mock auctioneers,
and woman's tears deliver us ! From
stinging flies, coal llach eyes, babies' cries,
protect us! From seedy coats, protested
notes, and leaky boots protect us!
From breaking doors, a wife that snores,
and all such bores, deRnl us! From
the landlord's hand, a greedy band, now
infesting our land preserve us ! From
a solid take, which is our fate, sometimes
to partake henceforth deliver us ! From
making pi, which does annoy and our
tempers try prevent us !
During the past few years the Radicals
mobbed, exiled, or massacred hundred
of white freemen of the Republic who
claimed JLe right to exercise the liberty of
speech and the freedom of the press.
Then, at all times and under all possiblo
circumstances, as they do at present, the
Democracy disapproved of and denounced
all such revolutionary and criminal prac
tices. Now, when a great dread comes
over the Radicals, and they causelessly
fear the goring of their own ox, they
agree with the Democrats that such things
are brutal, barbarious and infamous.
A Reward Secured. Two burglars
were captured a week ago at Aquia Creek,
