HENRY WARD BEECHER.
The Brecher birthday celebration
was intended to reconstruct ami repair
a damaged reputation. Omaha Her
The above is both uncalled for, out
of place auJ incorrect. It was intend
ed as a tit recognition of the already
1od life service f one of America's
richest and greaitst pulpit orators. It
came from an appreciative public, who
appreciate and know Ileniy Wan!
Beccher. It came from a community
in which this man has advised and
taught hU ft-llow citizen to strive for
that "higher walk" which elevates the
tone of the public and makes better
men and wumnu; all well-disposed peo
ple should acquiesce in the sentiment
and judgment of that intelligent com
munity which upJiolds aud honors Mr.
lleury Ward Beecher.
The Democratic party ot the naion
ia a comical organization. Ita princi
pal business during the- .past twenty
odd years has been to attempt to get to
the front in an organized shape, in order j
that it might occupy and eDjof the fat j
oliicpa; yet it has ever failotV to come I
up to the measure of its expectation
and "git thar" in good shape. Its j
platforms lrom the year 18G0 to the
present time, present a medley of comi
cal contradictions that would make
"the old curiosity shop" envy it, its
resources. In 1SC4 " the war was a j
failure;" yet a Union General was
placed at the had of the ticket upon
whote brow the heavy perspiration
from the ditches, and breastworks, the
advance, and retreats before Rich
mond, waa yet unwiped; in 1868 the
draft riot candidate, upon a platform
opposing all reconstruction measures,
was resorted to. In 1872 the Weeping
Convention of Cincinnati fores! died
Democratic action, and t he ridiculous
tarce of Horace Greelcv, as a Demo
cratic leader, was euacted. In 1876 the
economic campaign was organized, un
der the fcuise of Reform, with the
crafty old coon from Greystoue. bs
leader, in whoue wake was everything
that could contradict his professions of
honesty and reform. In 1830 came the
military dde, Hancock, and taridF
for revenue only;" yet defeat followed
switt aud fast at each successive at
atempt to form the old party of Ob
struction into battle array; now, during
the past ten months, the managers
have been attempting to again organ
ize; ai.d free trade has had its run, and
has been abandoned ere an enemy
is in sight it is laid away on the top
shelf alon-4 with Reform," "Civil Ser
vice," "The Rag Baby," and each and
every other absurdity that has been in
vogue during the hug, weary years,
this party has been seeking nn ''issue"
tnat would sain the people's confi
dence, aud at the same time the fat offi
ces, until it appears that wearied out
and disgusted, some of the leading
journals have cast over board every
pretence at framing an issue upon
which to meet the party in control of
the administration, and are advising
their party to join in the c y "for the
offices alone." The New York Sun
and one or two other eastern journals
have put up their platform " turn out
the rascals," and Democratic papers
every w her are quoting it with appro
val. This is what wc term " running
emptins." Ssid a prominent Demo
cratic journal, a short time f luce, "about
the only difference between the parties
is the offices." hence the empty cry "put
out tha rascals," " stop thief," etc, etc.
.Our Democratic friends will very
likely discover that it requires a broad
er and a higher issue than this "turn
out the rascals," to ever restore that
party to the confidence of the American
people; that a party with a grander
mission will have to spring up; that a
party which comes before the Ameri
can people-with the simple demand for
the offices cannot and ought not to be
Tuk odds and ends of all those ele
ments in American politics which
represent the crankisins of the day

and in using this phrase ''crankisms"

derstood by the avie Anti mouopo

In this recent conclave held in the
city of Chu-ago however, we notice the

Dennis Kearney aiid.-ilhert De I.a
Matyr, is enough, without going fur
ther. We notice Dennis was for the
railroads, nud Gilbert was in favor of
the "rag buby." We could admire Ihe
lertility ant resource ot t lie geniu
lrom the sand lot of the Pacific const,
but were Ptutined with the fatupidity
ami ignorance of the clerical doma
irosruc from Indianapolis. It was a
gathering of those elements that enap
up every humbug that arises in public
affairs, and c an result in n good to the
honest A utimoriopolists of the country
who are in favor of practical, honest
refoiin in public affairs, having a due
regard for the genuine prosperity of the
country. We notice the first thing at
tacked was the tariff question, upon
which there seemed lo be as many dif
ferent views a.s there wero members of
the convention. It waj a small meet
ing of Agnostics who neeme'l to be
chiefly upicious of one another.
Mb. William "Black, one of the
cleverest writers of fiction of the pres
ent day, has lately contributed a charm
ing story entitled Yolaiide, over the
pronunciation of which there has been
wide differences, scarcely any two per
sous pionouncing it alike, or correctly.
The author being appealed to for the
correct pronunciation, gave it in the
following wiity epigram:
"They say the author's spelling was
To make the people pronounce Yo
And who could think 'twould be found
To use the cumbrous form Yolande?
Though those who. wished a rhyme for
Holland..' - "'
Were doubtless welcome quite
But now upon us it haa dawned
Twere better far to say Yolande."

of the year at. ttieir beautiful home
"Dusoris," on West Island, three miles
from (ilen Cove, on the tiound. The
origin of the name of the bouse has an
interesting little story. West Island

origiually owned by the eld Cole fami
ly, and .Nathaniel Cole gave west
Island to hi3 wife, and it was then
called "Dos Uxoria," the wife's dower.

Mr. Dana purchased West Island
about eight years ago, from Mr. James
F. Cox, his brother, ex-Commissioner
'1 owuseud Cox, owning and living stiil
on iljst Island. West Islaud, the home
of the Danas, is a perfect Eden. It
contains about lil'ty acres beautifully
laid out in parks, groves, foiests, and
farm laud which is highly cultivated.
Dosoris is tne only house on th Is
land, excepting a most artistic, little
cottage which is rather a private club
house for the men of the family, and
which contains the finest of billiard ta
bles. The house itself is situated on a hill,
and is very commodious. It was built
by Commodore Dickerson, U. S. N.,
who owned the island before Mr. Cox
bought it. The halls are large and airy,
as also are the rooms. Mr. Dana, who
is a connoisseur in ail art matters, espe
cially iu pottery, has spent many years ;
in making a collection of the latter, :
and be baa one of the finest in the
country. He mav often be seen at d it-
pictures and porcehdn, mid when any
plate oi jug Htrikes hi artistic fancy,
he immediately, makes a purchaxeof it
aud adds it to his collection. This is
his one hobby, and he ha assisted
American art galleri s very materially
by his purchases.
The house is approached through ;m
avenue of fine old elms, njVVl lor their
beauty all over the country, 'fie inte
rior furnishings show a refined and cul
tivated taste; Ihepaiiors are large and
air,and the sleeping rooms veritable
