Push on, and keep moving is the cry
that comes from the incoming genera
tion. Men are not often estimated at
their true-value in the place of their
nativity. Why, even hemlock boards,
are doubled in value when taken from
their native Soil. Do not wait tor some
thing to do. Do something N. - r iffle you

man once said to Horace Greeley that
the world needed ditching more than
preaching. To which the sage pbiloso
pher of the Tribune replied-t 1 not less
preaching indeed, but moth of that
sort of preaching that will set men to
ditching. Hundreds of _young men to
day are anxiously waiting anti looking
for clerkships, or some office position.
How often are we asked to lend our
names to make the list of petitioners
longer on somebody's paper, who is
begging for some paltry Dine,which if
obtained would hardly pay he cost of
getting, and would afford a scanty sub
"sistance at best. I pray you Ibeware of
office and office-seekers. "ilf you are
fitted for the place and are honest, the
office will seek you. So spend no sleep
less nights in planning or days of toil
in presenting your claiins., Suppose
others do, by their persistent 'dragoon
ing obtain the post, verily thay have
their reward. When I see a man in the
prime of life, spending 'his days in a
seven by nine, grocery with a few hun
dred dollars capital invested in a dry
good store, adding nothing to his stock,
and increasing his business, I feel to
pity him. I want to say to hint, you
have mistaken your calling. When I
see men in their various
life, living from year to year without
growth, or increase of power as well
as increase in business, I feel like say
ing to them, " my dear sirs, in the
making you what you arc, materials for
first-class blacksmiths, carpenters, shoe
makers or farmers were spoiled."
There IS a pitting place for-each and
all. -If we only learn to labor and to

lies in doing well what we can. Wait

Mr. Jack }liestaud• solemnly affirmed
that the opposition to Cleary was greater
than was apparent. It proved ' 4 to be
just nine votes in 1331 If that was
greater than•the "apparent" opposition,
what, good sir, must the " apparent "
have been ? It was " the Ring against

THE I *EW FABLE
It is said that all things which per

is God's time) reappear in new forms of
use, or beauty.
4sop, who is sometimes named the
father of fable—that being a soft way
of calling a man the • father-eIC-Aies—
passed from this sublunary sphere rges,
ago. His fables, in which he
rection taught man to shun Vice and
eschew folly, were simple indictments,
leveled'at the small vices and 'minor
meannesses of mankind. Upon those
indictments men have been convicted
hourly, from the first; but We do not
hear that many have suffered conver-I
sion thereby. In fact, human incon
sistency propagates by divisin. Men
read fables illustrating sonic phase of
human meanness, and laugh heartily;
then, at once set about doing the very
meannes:ies they despised a moment

But none succeed better in this

gloom of midnight. Theft, murder,

of law, beconie Unspeakable crimes if

thing of the spirit of this indiscrimina

with greater impunity than a poor
white man ; but it is no less certain
that of two equally vicious, one white
and poor and the other black and poor,
the black one must not expect such
clemency as is granted to his white co
adjutor 'and equal.
Sonde months ago the Democratic
press of the country worked itself into
a fever of wrath against a scoundrelly
negro who outraged three wlAe women
in Franklin County, in this State. The
ease was as bad as it could be, and in
our opinion should have resulted in the
instant death ',of the i►erpetrator when
caught. HoNv,ever, the Democratie. pa
pers caught at it as another evidence
that the negro is a brute and not a twin.
From one end of the country to the
other the Franklin county outrage was
bandied, nd flung into thu faces of
Repubilans, as a political bone to be
picked and fought over. Not the hor
ble crime, good people, but the " nig
ger" constituted the burden of the cry
=of the Democratic press. As for us, the
color of the man never occurred to - us;
we only wondered where the friends of
the outraged women were that the per
petrator• still lived and breathed the
same atmosphere. The crime, be it
noted, did not terrify these fastidious
conservators of Public order and mor
als. Rather, it' was the color of the
driminal which tilled their souls with
Well. Had it been true that white
men never invited sudden death In the
same manlier, all this would have been
well enough. But, unfortunately, bru
tality pertains to no hue of the cuticle,
just as common sense by no means con
stitutes a special attribute of newspa
per politiciani. It does not now ap
pear for the firit time that white men
forfeit their lives as that negro forfeited
his. Not ten days ago, as we learn from"
the Harrisburg papers, seven white
skinned ruffians, whose family connec
tions are so respectable that the papers
forbear publishing the ruffians' names,
in the Capital Grounds, Harrisburg,
seized a respectable colored woman and
outraged her person. In the exact and
expressive language of tile Patriot and
Union, the Democratic paper, " They
are all white men, while the victim of
their licentiousness is a black 'woman."
Ah ! indeed! shall we pause now to
argue the status of the noble Caucas
sians who perpetrated'this horrible out
rage ? Shall w 6 drtiw from this crime
an argument totow that white scoun
drels who abuse 'I that colored woman
are not fit to vote the Democratic tick
et? •Shali we close our eyes to the fact
that the weakness of woman and the
majesty of law have been grossly out
raged by seven bruteS, and -only re
member that one party was-black and
the other white?
Never! before the law there can be
neither black nor white. A man is a
man, without reference to-color or birth,
and so is woman, woman. A brute is a
brute, whether white or black ; and
crime is crime, whether the perpetrator
be white or black, 'hell or poor, bond or
free. The Franklin county black ruf
fian and the Harrisburg white ruffians
occupy a- hideous equality. There is
no excuse or palliation for either. Such
cases should, never reach the courts.—
They constitute offences too gross for
the tardy operation of law. Mark, now ;
the black brute will get justice; the
seven white brutes will escape. Is that
justice? Will any , clamorer for the
precedence of the noble Caucasian
attempt to maintain that the quality of
crime is affecle4 or modified, in any
wise, by the color of the parties?
We plead for no race of men or wom
en. Rather, our plea is for, justice to
all.. Even for the mole-eyed editors
who would subvert all things to party
uses, we demand justice., The land is
full of violence. To all appearances the
forces of evil are now peculiarly active.
Vital Christianity, though greater in
the aggregate than at any other time
before, is weaker to resist to-day than
ever before, because it hesitates to make
use of all the appliances of power
which God has placed at its disposal.

shot by Mr. C. A young girl, also an
employee in the house, aroused the
family one morning at bi o'clock, say
ing that the negro boy bad entered her
room and attempted to take- liberties
with her. Mr. Carskaddon took a pis

found in the kitchen kindling the fire,

• that of Dr. Lichtenthaler's (who re
