A Democratic Orator in a
Not lonrj since a Democratic orator
was speaL'ing to a gaping crowd on the
thai issues at stake in Iowa, when at
tempting to palm off a lie on liis bear
ers, an amusing incident occurred. He
had told them how the rich bond-holders
had reduced them to slavery in spite
of the efforts of the Goddess of Liberty
and several o'.hr personage3, both
human and celest'al, till then unknown
to the audience. He quoted extensively
from George Francis Train's dema
gogue speech, and among other things
"Work! work! work!
From the dawn to the dutk of day.
Fi r your hopes are cru.-hed with a weight oT debt,
That the toil of joar 1 1 f won't pay."
Having wrought up his hearers almost
to mutiny, he left that branch of the
subject, and proposed lo show up some
of the Republican leaders, beginning
with lien. Wade. "Why, fellow-citizens,'
said he, 'there's Ben. Wn.de, a
regular agrarian, who wants all the
property divided s' that every man will
have an equal share." (Thundering
aprlaue, and cries of "Bully for him,"
"Thai's the tickeif' "He's the man for
me!") "Why, fellow-citizens," said
he, "Ben Wade is a radical and an
agrarian." (Deafening applause and
yells of "Good for the radicals!" "Bully
for the 'grarian?!"
The speaker was thunderstruck.
Evidently his hearers had never heard
much of Ben. Wade and the radicals.
They had been stirred up against the
rich, and they thought that radicalism
was a species of Democracy of which
Ben. Wade was the champion.
"Gentlemen fellow-citizens," con
tinued the speaker, "I don't think you
understand me Ben. Wade is the Vice
President, elected by the radicals, and
lie is himself a radical, and an agrarian
land pirate to boot. Why, what do you
think? lie propooos to take the rich
man's property, for which he toiled in
early life, and give k to those tvho have
no property, even lo those who da not
work. What do you

Wade and the " 'grarians." The ora
tor, finding that he had got on the
wrong track, abruptly brought his re
marks to a cloe.
This famous little horse made his
last appearance in public, at Chicago,
sometime since. . He is thus described:
Dexter's dam was a small mare four
teen and a half hands high, with three
white feet, a star and snip, and hip
shotten. She was muscular, wi'h an
uncommonly fine shoulder and barrel.
She was a good roadster, but had noth
ing particularly noticeable about her.
In 1S-57 this little mare was taken to
Rysdyk's Hambletonian, and the result
was the paragon Dexter, whose name
will endure as long as speed is valued
or the sports of the turf indulged in.
Dexter is fifteen hands one inch and
a half high, and was nine years old
last spring. In color he is a rich, glossy
brown, blaze face, four white feet, the
white running well up the legs. His
head, though somewhat large, is clean
and bony; lower jaw well open at the
base, leaving plen'y of room for the
windpipe; ears tapering and lively;
eyes bright and prominent; head well
set on a rather light neck, which is well
fitted to fine sloping phoulders, withers
high, wi'.h great depth of brisket and
good barrel ; back slif htly arched, with
broad loin and hips, and a drooping
rump; uncommonly long from the point
of the hip to the hock; short canon bone?
mane and tail ' sufficiently full to de
velop his Hambletonian origin.
The best time he ever made was at
Buffalo, August 14, 1S67, in a trot
against time, makiDg his mile in 2:17.
He now belongs to Mr. Robert Bonner,
of New York.
g'-Col. Forney, writing about the
Paris Exhibition, says: "That which
pained me most in our department was
the worst picture of Mr. Lincoln erer
painted; and when I noticed how many
persons stood before it, and how uni
versally his fame was diffused among
the working classes of the world, I re
gretted that something more worthy of
hi virtues bad not been prepared."
Tlie Cirotto L.11 percale.
An interesting piece of news, both
from an antiquarian and historical
pointof view, comes from Rome. There
ha3 been brought to light by means of
excavations in the grounds of the pal
atinate, near the palaces of the Ca?sars,
the antique gro'.to Lupercale. It is
known that the histories, half religious
and hnlf civil, whicti are attached to
this grotto, go back as far as the Arca
dians of Evandre, who raised an altar
at this place to the god Pan. After
ward?, if we may believe tradition,
when the cradle. which bore Romulus
and Remus was cast upon the bank of
the Tiber, these young adventurer
crawled to this grotto, where they were
suckled by a wolf. The grotto from
that time became doubly sacred, and
took the name Lupercale.
This grotto, with the addition which
had been made about and above it, was
respected until the time of Augustus,
but it subsequently disappeared, with
otner heathen altars, destroyed by the
hands of t'we Christians. M. Gori,
who has the credit cf this discovery,
came upon it while following up the
course of a pure stream cf water which
fell into the great Tarquin sewer, but
which came from an uuknown source.
He found that this stream was fed by
waters which came from the heart of
the Palatia forest into the grotto Luper
cale, and to the foot of this altar to Pan.
Of the sanctified basin which secured
this water but a few fragments remain.
The source of the sacred stream has
survived the temple, and the temple its
The L.ife,of a Newspaper Han,
For the information of those individ
uals who foolishly imagine that the life
of a newspaper man is a paradiseon
earth, and is fraught with untold pleas
ures and privileges, we give the follow
ing t ketch of the duties of this individ
ual, concerning whom audi a wrong
impression exists. It is taken from Mr
Hunt's volume of the ' Fourth Estate:"
"The man who becomes a journalist
must almost bid farewell to mental rest
or mental leisure. If he fulfills his
duties truthfully, his attention must be
ever awake to what is passing in the
world, and Lis whole mind must be de
voted to the instant examination and
discussion and record of current events
He has no time for literary idleness,
with such literary labors on his shoul
ders. He has no days to spend on
catalogues, or in dreamy and discursive
researches in public libraries. He has
no months to devote to the exhaustion
of any one theme. What he has to
deal with must be taken at a moment's
notice, be examined, tested, and dis-

jgFJohnson's enormous egotism has
done the country a service by making
public the letter of Grant protesting
against the removal of Sheridan. He
made it public for the purpose of get
ting his reply into print; but where
one man will pay the slightest heed to
anything in the humble individual's"
letter a hundred will ponder and re
member these words of the great and
patriotic soldier, viz. :
General Sheridan has performed his
civil duties faithfully and intelligently
His removal will only be regarded as
an effort to defeat the laws of CoDgress.
It will be interpreted by the unrecon
structed element in the South those
those who did all they could to break
up this Government by arms, and now
wish to be the only element consulted
as to the method of restoring order as
a triumph. It will embolden them to
renewed opposition to the will of the
loyal masses, believing that they have
the Executive with them.
It is undoubtedly the expressed wish
of the country that General Sheridan
should not be removed from his present
command. This is a Republic, where
the trill of the people is the law of the

Mr. Gough's Recovery.
The following incident is worthy of
being often repeated, as an encourage
ment to labor for moral or religious
reform. A warm heart and wise
tongue may overcome formidable ob
stacles. Rev. J. L. Cuyler tells this
On a certain Sabbath evening, tome
twenty years ago, a reckless, ill dress
ed young man was idly lounging under
the elm trees iu the public square of
Worcester. He had become a wretched
waif on the current of sin. His days
were spent in the waking remorse of
the drunkard ; his nights were passed
in the buffooneries of the ale houe.
As he sauntered along out of humor
with himself and with all mankind a
kind voice saluted him. A stranger
laid his hand upon his shoulder, and
said, in cordial tones, Mr. G , go
down to our meeting at the town hall
to-night." A brief conversation fol
lowed, so winning in its character that
the reckless youth consented to go. He
went, he heard the appeal there made.
With tremulous hand he signed the
pledge of total abstinence. By God's
help he kept it, and keeps it yet. The
poor boot crimper who tapped him on
the shoulder (good Joel Stratton) has
lately gone to heaven. But the youth
he saved is to day the foremost of re
formers cn the face of the globe. Me
thinks when I listen to the thunders of
applause that greet John B. Gough on
the platform of Ex3ter Hall or the
Academy of Music, I am hearing the
echo ef that tap on the shoulder, and
of that kind invitation under the ancient
elms of Worcester! He that winneth
souls is wise.
S una att. What of this conspira
tor ? What had he to do with the as
sassination? Only this. He was
simply a poor "tool" .in the hands ot
more wicked men a "cats paw"
nothing more. As to his guilt there
was no doubt, from the conviction and
execution of Lis miserable mother, with
her fellow conspirators. Another
wicked Satan planned the work, he
simply helped its execution. As the
electric telegraph was the result of ma
ny mwids indeed of all past and pres
ent prophets, poets, philosophers and
inventors so that assassination was
the concentration and culmination of all
the wickedness in that struggle for
the perpetuation of the "pe
culiar institution." Bad ambitious
men had sworn- to "rule or ruin."
Tnis was one of the modes by which it
was to be done. Who were the man
agers ? Whiskey-drinking, cock-fighting,
horse-racing, lottery vending, pot
house politicians and play house actors
were employed to do the wicked work.
A few of the lesser criminals, as usual,
will lose their poor live?,- while the old
er Satans will, as u?ual, escape unhung.
As to what becomes of the iusiguificant
Surratt, nobody cares. Let him be
forgotten. Am. Phren. Journal.
gs5FA convict in the Auburn (N.
Y.) prison, who was looked upon for
some time after his incarceration as
hardly compos mentis, has invented and
made a superior sewing machine, en
tirely different from any used in the
outer world, upon which the prison
clothing is made. Near by, a knitting
machine of his make is turning out
stockings for the p isoners at a rale

Moody of Ohio, the celebrated Meth

among the rebels during the war. He

LMIUIlATIO TO THIS COIN
A steady stream of emigration is
pouring into the United States with
unabated rapidity. The arrivals from
Ireland, especially, are unusually large,
notwithstanding the active demand for
labor in that country. The dissatisfi
ed rebels who, after the termination of
the war, went to Mexico and Brazil are
also returning as rapidly as possible to
their former homes. These signifi
cant fact prove that the complaints of
"tyranny," "despotism" "misery" and
"distress," with which the Copperhead
Journals are filled, have little or no
foundation in the fact; and that, de
spite the high taxes caused by the re
bellion, America still remains one of
the most prosperous countries on the
globe. We would not continue to
have an onnual-influx of hundreds of
thousands of emigrants if many oppor
tunities of employment were not open,
and if this country was not found by
its new citizens to offer to industrious
toilers richer rewards than Europe.
We have still room for millions more
of industrious men and women, and
every new carge of this precious freight
at once affords a guarantee of increased
prosperity by strengthening our indus
trial forces, and gives a proof of prac
ti;al appreciation of the superior ad
vantages enjoyed by the citizens of the
United S.ates. Forney's Press.
The Hunting Leopard. In Per-
sia the leopard or panther (guepard)
is trained to hunt gazelles just as the
falcon will hunt herons. The hunts
man provides it with a hood, and seats
it on his saddle bow. The moment
he sights a deer or gazelle heuncovers
the guepard, and lets it down from his
horse. According to the distance, in
one or two bounds the guepard springs
upon its prey, which it seizes by the
neck and brings to the ground. The
huntsman then comes up, and after ca
ressing the guepard, which has already
begun to make a meal of the quarry,
and giving it a bit of meat to divert its
attention, he puts on its hood and re
stores it to its place at hi saddle-bow.
When the guepard misses its prey,
which very rarely happens, it hides
itself and lies down, and can only be
persuaded to renew the chase by re
peated caresses. A trained guepard

"The New York Herald has the
following editorial on the employment
of western troops:
An Indian war is upon us. The
blunders, right and left, which have
made it necessary, will not now mend
affairs. We must to-day accept the
fact, look it in the face, and prepare to
fight it out. The question is, how can
it best be brought to a conclusion? Cer
tainly not by our regular troops; for
the whole past history of our frontier
indicates a complete failure of the
army whenever this duty has been as
signed to it. There is but one method,
and that is by volunteers. The gov
ernor of every frontier State and Ter
ritory should have authority to keep
the Indians quiet in his district, and to
raise a sufficient volunteer force for the
purpose the bills to be paid by the
general government. TLe troops thus
raised should be plaeed in command of
volunteer officers, who, selected from
our ablest frontier men, understand
Indian tactics, have personal wrongs to
avenge, and a local responsibility to
urge them to action; let them not be
afraid to take a scalp. The Indian
appreciates force and nothing else. If
this method be pursued we shall close
our Indian war in less than six months
and at the minimum cost. If it be car
ried on in the present style, the country
may prepare itself to be bled of its
treasure for the next ten years, only
to find the Indian question as unsettled
then as it is now.
JEST" Arte mus Ward, who was a
staunch Roman Catholic, was nursed
in his last illness with all the tenderness
of a brother by "Arthur Sketchly," who
is also a Catholic. A member of the
"Savage," to which 'Arthur Sketchly,'
or to give him his right name, Mr.
Rose, also belonged, circulated a re
port and got it published in some secta
rittn papers, to the effect that Artemus
Ward was really a Protestant, but that
at the last moment Arthur Sketchly
fetched a Roman Catholic priest to at
tend bim at his death-bed, and thus
caused him to die a Catholic. The
calumniator was called upon to retract
this statement and publish a contradic
tion. He refused to do so, and Arthur
Sketchly withdrew from the "Savage"
club, together with a considerable num
ber of its most respectable members.
