The discussion just now attracting
the attention of the public to James
Buchanan's position in regard to the
secession ot the southern states, con
tains manv elmeuts of the ridiculous.
James Buchanan was elected president
of the United States; took the oath and
tilled the office during the term for
which he was elected, and administered
the government in the interests of the
democratic party which elected him.
Most of tne fat offices couiinsf under
his appointive power were filled with
representative democratic statesmen ot
that day. These officers, nin8 out of
ten of them, were rebels, and openly
preached secession in administration
circles. President Buchanan knew
what was going on: the rebel democracy
fully unde-stood his attitude, he dared
not openly countenance secession; but
he purposely and ably aided and abet
ted the commission of the overt act, by
declaring through his attorney general
and through his messages that there
was no warrant in the constitution for
the chief executive to employ force to
coerce seceding states. He unquestion
bly knew what Jacob Thompson; a
member of his cabinet, went aputh to do.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE TO BEE AND WHAT
. y r I DO.
I don't like to go down street and
seethe street corners decorated with
loafers. I don't like to see drunken
men reeling along;before one. I don't
like to see flourishing saloons and
prosperous well-fed bartenders. I
don't like to have poor little bare
footed children coming to the door aud
begging for "old clothey." I don't
like to see a man climb into his wagon
before a saloon door and lash his
horses into a fury when he is too drunk
to see that they are tied. I don't like
to see poor patient beasts standing all
day without food or water, while their
owner is carousing or lying in a
drunken stupor on the streets. I don't
like broken sidewalks and delapidated
churches and half paid ministers and
hovels and poor people. I don't like
to see reading rooms closed for want
of patronage and boys running at
I:irff on the streets at nicht. I don't
ike to see small boys smoking cigar
ettes or big ooys s weanng and.' using
obsreno language. I don't like to hear
an intelligent man say he ".can't live
without beer." I don't like to see
thousands of dollars spent to build and
support penitentiaries and reform
schools, and licences given to men
to fill them. I don't-like to see a
man hung for committing murder
when his brain was on fire witn
whiskey, and the man who furnished
it go unwhipped of justice.
I like to see men too busy to lounge
on street corners or adorn dry goods
boxes. I like to see men walk straight
with heada upright. I like to see sa
loons closed for want of pat
ronage and oanenaers earn
their living by honest manual labor.
I like to see happy well dressed little
children with new clothes, I like to see
men come to town, do their trading
and leave their money in exchange for
groceries and necessaries for their .fam
ilies instead of. the saloon till; 1 like
new side walks and graded streets; I
like lovely churches dedicated to the
service of Almighty God, and ministers
who have sufficient of this world s goods
to keen their minds and hearts from
anxiety and thought for morrow; 1 like
.to see comfortable homes for the -labor
iug classes with a flower garden for the
wife and little ones; I like to see reading
rooms oeu .and thronged every even

seek to improve their minds and protect
their morals; I like "no license;'..; 2o

Miss Edwards, in her book on boat
ife on the Tile, relates the following:
"I asked Rais Abdullah, the other day
why some of the sailors said their
nravers and some did not. He said:
m - - s
"Sometimes if a sailor is young, per
haps he has not begun to pray; or if
he smokes hasheesh or drinks wine,
then Iih does not nrav.If I ever
smoked hasheesh, or drank wine, I
should leave off praying; it would be
of no use my doing both; it would be
ike taking a first step to the east, and
then a step to the west."
