Scotch Songs.
If proverbs are the mother-wit of a cotilit
tryi, then ballads are its sentiment; they em
balm its national pride and its penuliar hu
manity just as its honey preserves the flavor
and bouquet of its flowers. And of no
country is this so true as of Scotland, for
its songs are the revelations to us of a peo
ple and a country. highly picturesque, and
full of the broadest lights and shadows.
Where is there a land that piese - nts - .such
startling contrasts of thotintnin and moor,
of wood and water? and:where a people
whose character reveals such antitheses? In
their earliest history the trait is remarkable;
they lived as rudely as peasants, they fought
as if .possessed by the very spirit of chival
ry and valor. 'When they abolished •the
magnificence and aristocracy of the Papa
cy, it was to inaugurate the barest and the
most democratic of churches. They were
the first to betray Charles Stuart, and the
last to lay down arms for the rights of his
descendants. They are worldly-wise to a
proverb, yet strangely susceptible to ro
mance. Their whole history is full of the
most abrupt contrasts.
The songs of such a people have necessa
rily art infinite variety; the color and the
perfume of life are in them. A noble, na
tional music symbolizes the early virtues of
any nation, just as the flowers which were
fabled to spring from .tlie blood of gods and
heroes indicated the btkuty of their-lives.
When the Scotch songs were written,
and who wrote the greater part of them, is a
question as difficult to answer as the famous
Scotch proverb, " Given the Picts, Who
Ivere,they? and who now represerits them?' s
• The oldest..mariuscript we possess is the
Skene MS., which was doubtless written
out between the years 1615 *and 1620, and
left by the' last descendants of that house to
the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh
about the year 1769. They published a copy
of it in 1839, and in it, marked us old, are
most of our faYorite melodies. All of them
bear the stamp of high antiquity, the aroma
of something that has pasSed out of our life;
and herein is their charm, for if it could be
proved that they'were modern, the heart of
Scotland would be bereaved indeed.- The
very suggestion that Lady Wardlaw (in the
time of Queen Anne) wrote what Coleridge
rightly calls
0., Pa
robbedit of much of its interest until Mr.
Aytoun restored it to its place in the affec
tions by proving, not only . its undoubted an
tiquity, but also discoywng that Sir Pat
rick was really a# historical personage.—
The ballad describes the expedition that
took Alexander's daughter to Norway to
marry Eric, king of that country in 1281;
and Sir Patrick was probably a leader in it;
at any rate Aytoun says his tumulus or grave
is still to, be seen on the little island of Stron
say, one of the Orcadian grOup over against
i -
the coast Pf Norway. •
I believe that the oldest printed Scotch
air is generally conceded to be "hUp in the
Morning Early." ' This was a great favorite
of Queen Mary, the consort of William the
Third, and on one occasion she 4ave great
offense to Purcell by preferring its quaint
melody and sly humor to his.finished classi
cal compositions. Another very ancient
melody, and one far too little known, is call
ed "Braw, Brawtads." ; Burns has set, to .
it words full of a wild, tender luttipiliess; .
and the celebrated Dr. Haydn has ;left a
manuscript arrangement of the air, - on'which
he has inscribed' (doubtless the best English
he was master of,) "This one, Dr. Haydn
favorite Song:"
The'private history of 'Auld Robin Gray'
is amusing, and shows how near together
are the fountains of mirth and pathos. It
was composed by Lady Ann Lindsay just a
century ago, to be sung to a very ancient air
called" The Bridegroom Greets," of which
she was assionately
,fond.' The music was
exquisit , but the old words were very ob
jections )1e; so she determined to give some
little history of virtuous distress toils plain
tive tones. One day while attempting this
in her closet, she called out to her young
sister:. " I am writing a ballad, my dear; I
am oppressing my heroine,with misfortune;
I have sent her Jamie to sea, and broken
her father's arm, and made her mother fall
sick, and given her auld Robin Gray for a
lover; but I wish to load her with a fifth
sorrow within the four lines, poor thing!—
Help me to one!" " Steal the 'cow, sister
Annie," said, the little; Elizabeth; and the'
cow was immediately b:/led, and the ballad
completed. Lady Ann's charming little ro
mance is still suhg, but it was set by a cler
gyman called Lewes, in 1828, to the emi
nently beautiful melody which is now pop
ularly and universally known as " Auld
Robin Gray."
The remodeling of very ancient ballads
and giving them a dress more acceptable to
the present day, was on of Burns's greatest,
aCcomplishments. ,Even a curoory glance
will convince any one that Alidie — songs of
, liis arc far the best which take the " oWer
word" or burden of some old lilt for their
basis. For instance, " The Birks o' Aber
feldy," both music and words, has a certain
antiquity as far back as 1657; yet the place
is still pointed out where Burns sat and wrote
this beautifully descriptive song. The met
Oily is one of those which close on the sixth

The g randpld ballad of Sir Patrick Spence,
suffered much at the hands of modernizers,
and I would like to do my part toward re
storing in their original beauty such exqui
site lines as these:
prace dew on the gewrin lying
the fa o' her fairy feet,
And like winds in the sunina t er sighing
for voice is low find sweet.'
These have been verynnady,lsnbly altered

"Like gentle dew drops fallirig
Alight her fairy feet,
And like winds in summer calling
Her voice is low and aweet.".

and it closes like a wail of hopeless sorrow. -
A More familiar instance , may be • found in
John Anderson My Jo," It, has now ab
simileted itself to the measured beauty of
ktur,ns's immortaLwords; but so late as 1704
it appeared as a'country dance, with a note ,
attached which strongly illustrates the man
ners of.the timer "The tune is to be played
even through once over every- time, so that -
Me jint,ontple hare time to take their drink."
But better than all of this class is the 'Laird
o' Cockpen.' It is comic, pathetic, full of
sly humor or mock heroism, according to
the words or time in which it is played. It
was composed by that Laird of Cockpen
who so faithfully accompanied the second
Charles in his wanderings, and who, by •his
wit and-music beguiled so many hours of
the exiled King. Particularly was he.fa•
mous for his rendering of the " mirth-pos
sessed" old air called `Grose_ and Butter."
Chinks was so captivatedwith it that
Brose and Butter" lulled him to sleep at
night and awoke him In the morning. Af
ter the restoration, however, Cockpert with
many others was forgotten, and peor and
friendless he found it impossible togain the
ear of the King.,, Ills musical, talents nev
ertheless procured him the friendship of the
royal organist, and be vras_pennitted to play
the voluntary one day as Charlea wee leav
ing Butter' the chapel. "Bross and stayed '
as if by magic the King's retreating steps;
in another Minute he was in the organ gal
lery. The organist, alarmed, fell on his
knees, exclaiming, "It was not ma,- your
Majesty, it was not me."
" You you!" exclaimed the monarch
contemptuously, • "you never could• play
anything like that in your life." Then,
turning to'his old companion with kindling
face, Odds fish! Cockpen, I thought you
would have made me dance in the church."
Many an estate has been " sold for a song,"
but the *lands .of Cock-pen were redeemed
with one.
Many of the Border ballads have a charm
that is wholly indescribable. Words and
music lilt along as if to the gallop' 9f horses
and the jingling of spurs and spears. Who
ever (that had heart and ears to hear) listen
ed to "-0 Kenmuir's on an' awa' Willie"
without longing to mount and gallop by his
side? The same active influence accompa
nies the Jacobite Songs. "It's up wir the
bonnets o' bonnie Dundee" must have filled
many a legiOn for Prince Charlie. bear
it is to have it chime in the niemoryfor days
The stately rtythrn and march of many
of the oldest airsmake them peculiarly suit
able for patriotic songs; and Burns took ad
vantage of this when he adapted " Scots
wha hae", to the air "Hey, tattle taittie."
For tradition says that to the spirit-stirring
strains of this noble melody Bruce and his
heroes marched to the field of Bannock
There have been many theories to account
for the peculiarities of Scotch music.—
" Keep to the black keys" is avery common
one. Others affirm that " the Scotch scale
is the moderii'diatonic one divested of the
fourth and seventh." But sonic of the old
est and purest Scotch airs possess both sev
enth and fourth. " The Broom of the Cow
denknowes" has both; "Ca' the ewes to the
knowes" has a most effective seventh.--
and the " Souters of Selkirk" would be lost
without its fourth, while the seventh at its
close is a definite peculiarity.
Mr. Finlay Dun; one of the very best au
thorities on Scotch music, points out theye
'mutable similarity between ,the cadences
of the most genuine melodies and the an 4
clout music of the Roman Catholic Church.
The fine old air called " Tarry woo," alter
ed by Dr. Geddes, a Catholic priest, in 17-
37 to " Lewie Gordon," was Once sung in
the Catholic Church as a Sanctus and It
now appears in Whittaker's " Seraph" as a
hymn harmonized far .lo u r N - i -,i;—..,. -- 2,..-a.-
these theories affect not its Originality.—
Grant all the seven notes of the scale, !flake
them fourteen, and they would not account
for the keen emotions, the mysterious stir
rings, the strange yearnings, these melodies,
so wild, so simple, so rich, so various,
evoke: No! it is because the musician*
lyre has been the musician's kart; because,
from the sorrow 'and suffering and all that
travail of life has come the child of song. .
There is a common impressithat the ,
playing and pinging of Scotch mite is very ;
simple: -- tOn'the coritiary; . Very fnot . `' to
the manor born" are able to' inteipret it.—
Geminiani is said to have blotted quires of
paper in attempting to write a second part
to ' The Broom of the Cowdenknowes;"
and I am very mu& of the Ettricle Shep
herd's opinion,_ who defended its want of
range by saying that." human nature never
wearies o' its am prime elementary feelings."
Christopher North's charge of monotony he
says " is nae main correct than to ea' a kin
tra level in bonnie gentle ups and downs;
twa-three notes may mak' a maist - e beautifu'
tune; twa-three bonny knowes a bonny
landscape." He, then very pleasantly con
trasts it with our modern music - which he
says is -the " everlastingly same see 7 saw--
the same slap at the foot of the bill, an' the
same scamp* fip—the same helter-skelter
across the fiat, and the same cautious riding
down the stony declivities."
But Scotch songs are beyond criticism
from a literary stand-point, for they are
mostly the production of a pre-literary jci
riod; for the rest we never think of critici
sing them; we just receive them and love
them.—Christian Union. _ ,
Two hundred years ago that quaint old
writer, Sir Thomas Browne, filled two large
volumes with an account of what he con
ceived to be " Vulgar Errors"—" Pseudo
doxia Epidemica"—and although modern
science has done much to diffuse sound
kndwledge in regard to the phenomena
around.us, yet popular fallacies have not as
yet quite disappeared. Even our text books
of popular science, and many of our so
called scientific papers, continue to propa
gate and perpetuate mistakes which may
well be classed with the " vulgar error&' of
Dr. Browne. Thus, nothing is more com
mon than tohear of the tubular character
of hair; indeed, almost every one that we
meet will, if asked, Wilms that the hairs of
:our head are very fine tubes. And yet eve
ry hair is a good solid cylinder—a fact pub
lished hundreds of times, but which seems
to have no effect upon the popular belief.—
It is true that a hair, when examined under
the microscope, looks something ke a tube;
but then so does a solid metallic ire; a fine
needle, for. exaMple. That whie gives rise
to , the tubular appearance is gimply t •

Anothe = ugular idea, which has gained
very . -i eral ground, is that the moons of
Ju s er, cau be seentin a looking-glass; and
' some bright night We try the experiment,
we shall actually see Jupiter in the looking
glass', accompanied by a very faint star
which constantly maintains the same dis
tance from the planet. • Further examina
tion will show us that every bright starpre
sents the same appearance; and if.,we re
flect a little upon the phenomenon, we shall
see that the so-called moon is only the faint
imago of .the star :or. planet' reflected froin
the surface of the glass, *while the bright im
age reflected from the snrfeee of the mer
cury is what we call the star itself. A lamp
or candle held before a thick mirror will
present precisely the same appearance.-:-
smple though the explanation be, however,
there are-few errors that have taken a deep
er hold 'on the minds of the pseudo-seientl
tic than this.
Amongst popular fallacies a prominent
place must be gtVert to those which arise
from i the actual deception of the senses; for
neither °Ur eyesight nor our sense of touch
is to be absolutely depended Upon. Thus,
the beautiful phenomenon kna.wn as "the
sun drawing water" is caused pimply by the
rays ot 00 3 44 - Piercifig abA iktlfetletida,
and rendered more intense by the prevailing
gloom. Few people would believe that ac
tual measurement of the aunatid moon, when
nearthe horizon at rising or setting, vould
tilp show that they are then ran& larger,

A.Uotherfallacy which in very prevalent,
is that every drop. of water ,contains

indeed,-every fragment of, solid matter on
the face of the globe, is peopled with myri
ads of these small creatures. :,For this be
lief there ,however, no foundation what
ever. So far as anirnalcules are .concerned,
most pebbles and, fragments of rocks are
barren deserts, especially when dry; and

An Exponure by Thomas V. Cooper.
-At the Republican county meeting held
at West Chester recently, Thomas V. Coop
er, Esq., of Media, was called upon for a
speech. -Mr. Cooper is one of 'the editors
of the Delaware County Anwricah; - and rep.
resented the county in the Legislature last
session. His particular topic on "this occa
sion was the attempt that has been mtido to
break down Gen. Hartrtinft, with the first'
stages of which he happened to be person
ally, familiar. Mr. Cooper said:
"We find that Harthanft is the mark for
every venomous arrow, and since he must
bear the shock of the battle, it is our duty
as good Republicans all the more firmly to
stand by him. I for One have good reasons
to know that in personal and official iuteg:
rity he is really above reproach. Near the
Close of the - legislative session of last win
ter I was unwillingly brought in contact
with those who are - now and were then in
conspiracy.againschim in order that they
might protect themselves.
"One morning I received a note request-.
log me to call at one of the rooms of the
LoChiel. There I was introduced by one of
my constituents, since shown to be one of
Evans's securities, to George 0. Evans, ac
cused of appropriating $291,000 of the
State's money, Dr. Payne, the attorney Stra
ban, and others. These parties -desired me
to introduce to the House that morningg a
series of resolutions chiirging General Liar
treat with dishonesty la the management
of the auditing department;' and of Mack
ey,' chief of the Treasury. They went into
a long explanatitin of their proposed move
ment, and endeavored to -- pledge me -that if
I became its legislative champion my name
should be heralded throughout the State
and nation as a model reformer. They
spoke of their immense power and means—
rather of the means backing. them—saying
they could control $500,000, not forla
tion; oh! no; that was not e. en iit ;
but as a moral support in the movement. That
this amount and this support would
through some channel of reform not named
oN described.
'"They named a number of newspapers
that could be'counted upon to .further and
, back the undertaking by glowing articles
and such evidences as would at least awa
ken suspicion. Among Ike newspapers
'named *Are the New York Sun and 21rib
.wnerthe Philadelphia .Press, and Lancaster,
Harrisburg, Pittsburg, and other_ papers of.
' large influence. An introduction of their
resolutions would be immediately followed
by flaming articles from these and other
- soOrces, and if necessary the question could
be pushed in the Legislature by speeches,
and evidence could be produced sufficient
to injure Hartranft's chances for nomination
and election. When asked for this evi
dence, a check or a draft, a note, one or
two private letters, and the books of Yerkes
& Co. were shown. And an hour's exarai 7
nation convinced me that% nothing in the
least degree tangible was presented, and
subsequent developments have shown that
every atom of testimony bore only upon
trivate and personal transactions—that no-.
hing in any way connected Hartranft. with I
an. improper use of the State funds. When
this objection was urged they failed to meet
it,.and the party plainly _showed by word
and action that - their object was to create - an
improper suspicion—this for purposes of
their own—this, as they were told, with a
view to intimidate Hartranft and prevent
any further prosecution of the claims of the
State against Evans. When asked to treat
the conversation as confidential, I said that i
Hartranft ought to know it, that he was a
friend, and that I should tell him ;• his after
conduct would attest his guilt or innocence.
SoMewhat to my surprise, they manifested
a sudden willingness that he should be told,
and this was confirmation that the whole
movement was designed; to scare hint off',
from a proper prosecution. A few minutes
later I told Hartranft. Ile' replied: ' These
parties have - for the past twenty-four hours
been trying to 'get some one to introduce
their resolutions, and only lakt, night they
offered me $58,000 to withdraw the prosecu
and I refused. The very lowest amount
due the State may be based upon the deci
sion or bail fixed by Judge _Pearson, and,
that is $lOO,OOO. This prosecution
be; withdrawn until the State gets er due,
and if these parties want inv.= gation they
shell haie it.' That was e substance of
what Hartranft said., 'oon followed, (not
the introduction , he resolutions of Eyans ,
& Co., for' i mouton with myself every
one apprs ed refused to touch them,) but
those quested by., Hartranft,. and those
w , led to the investigations herein liar
raft was unanimously acquitted and some
of. the Evans ring condemned.
"Have I not shown sufficient to satisfy all
that there was a conspiracy here?—a con
spiracy to betray tile State, ~ if Hartranti
would scare; if not, to threaten - his chances
as a candidate 'for Governor? ,t Why, the
very papers named by these men as pledged
to the moral support' of their object, each
. and all, with singular,-with more than sus
picious unanimity, opposed the State ticket as
Lan. as ft was - nominate.' ; Yet , more; this
evidence, theti:iii The .Private 'keeping' . of

'What is the truth about the conversion of
the Democracy to negro equality. We de
sire to give a perfectly candid answer.—
This seems to be the state of the case: The
Democratic party, us a political organiza
tion, accepts the constitutional amendments.
as established - , facts just as the South ac
cepted the overthrow, of the Confederacy.
It:desists - from opposition to them just as
the South desisted from the attempt at se
cession--;•cenvinced not by. logic,. but by
facts. - Tlie.-Cobstitution, 'now gives to the
negro ' eqival.civil 'rights !and.; the ,suflrage;
mid the Democracy virttiallY
,Isays, "These
enactments cannot be repealed, and we
promise to-give up trying to repeal them."
: This is all very well; .brit it is by no means
enough. The Democratic pledge to let the,
constitutional- amendments alone does-not
meet the ease. The danger of the colored
people has• been and is, not'oppression by
lawiso much as oppression without law.,-•
Their leal states as voters has long beep
practically-established;e owe little more,
to the•Detnocrety for. v ing that they will
i f
not interfere with that t an for: voting that
access! it must - - not be attempted; or that
gratita ion shall. not interfered with. , -
What We- do wait is racticali- guaranties:
that school - teachers of egroes shall not be
driven away; that blac men shalt not be
whipped. itUd intirtiered;. that terrorism sup
. perted by • occasional violence shall not keep,
them in virtual serfdom. Will the. World's
party give us any guarantyon that point?
The World will probably answer that the
danger we indithite is Chiefly imaginary.—
Exactly; the consistent and unvarying tone
of the World as to the Kuklux outrages as
sures the,
that it utterly disbelieves in them.'
It hes 'never ceased to declare, not simply
that they' were exaggerated for' political ef
fect, but that they had absolutely no exist
ence.l It has ridiculed, unsparingly and un
ceasingly, the very idea of any organized
terro:lsin - exercised toward the Southern
blacks., That is enough for us. We do not
impugn the World'a honesty or candor; we
only say, If you cannot see what seem ,to
us, facts patent as daylight, we must wholly
distrast yopr judge - mut Your diagnosis, of
the disease is so different freni, ours that we
are' unwilling to accept your treatmentl of
it. And the World in this fairly represents •
the ithole, Democratic party. Its organs
and spokesmen, almost without exception,
have !always declared not only, that the Ku
klux 1 legislation assumed excessive poWer
for Congress and the President, but that
the evils against which it was directed had
no existence. We believe there , never vi: •
a more . conspicuous instance of the power
- a- partisanship to blind men. That the
outrages-on the hlacks have been sometimes
exaggerated we do not doubt, but that such
outrages, have been practiced on a , wide
scale; that they are a constantly impending
danger,, that their existence and toleration,
are due to prejudices which a thousand Cin
cinnati platforms cannot dispel, we hold to
be a I well established as any broad factcan
be. ,
Th t the South is in general more lawless
and violent than the North; that the lower
class of_ whites - are, ill-disposed toward the
negroes; that their hostility tends to express
itselfin acts ,- this state of things alone
woulddot involve all the evil we appre
