The two most" celebrated men who
.i i- i -i? .PIl.o tv.
come into tne list ci Avruera u: uuiii.a iu
prison in the Crs-t half of the seventeenth
century arc Raleigh and Cervantes. .The
gallant Sir Walter, alter serving when
young as a gentleman volunteer, went
with Sir Humphrey Gilbert to America,
returned and was knighted, raised a vol
unteer squadron ugainst the Spanish
Armada, and became a courtier. Some
thing he did or said gave offense at com t,
and he resided abroad for seme years.
When Eliz ibeth died, nnd James I. suc
ceeded to the throne, Raleigh returned
to England; but he was arrested and
found guilty of treason by a packed jury.
Twelve years of his life were passed corn
tiuuously in prison ; and here he wrote
his "History of the World,'' a marvel
ous work to execute under such circum
stances. In order really to begin at the
begining, he begins at the creation,' and
gravely dicusses tho opinions "expressed
by the learned as to whether . paradise
was as high up as the moon, or only as
high up a3 mid air, or under thef quin
octial line. But still the "History of
the World" i3 a nobte fragment, which
could only have been written by drid who
had read much, thought -much,1 vnud
traveled much. Hapless Raleigh! King
James hated, him with all the hatred
which a narrow mind - feels toward au
intellectual superior, and seat him to the
scaffold. The other great man whose
name we have coupled with Rarcigh,
was the Spanish novelist, Cervantes, the
anthor of the world-rcncwnedt-'Doa
Quixote."- He wa first a student, then
a chamberlain to a cardinal, and then a
soldier. He wa3 thrice wounded at the
battle of Lepato, was taken prisoner by
tho corsairs, kept five years in captivity,
and ransomed by his friends. Return
ing to Spain, he married, .entered" upon
civil employment?, traversed wide regions
of hii native country, and watched well
the habits and pccularitics cf hL country
men.. Monetary embarrassments, rather
than political or religious discord threw
him more than once into prison, but.hu
imprisonment was a great thing i for the
world, sipce it was occupied, by. the plan
ning and c ommer.ccmsut cf VD on Qui
etc." . ' , -
Open the portals wile; let us aJmit
the greatest prison writer of the second
half of the seventeenth century, . John
Bunyan, tinker, preacher and author of
a religious allegory, whieh is snil to have
been translated into a greater number of
languages than any other book in. the
world, with two exceptions, the Bible,
and the "Imitation of Christ." He was
thrown into Bedford jail because he would
not renounce dissent, and there he sup
ported himself for twelve years lyr(mak
ing tagged boot-kecs. Vro'ruacy
con trover Jul tract, preached to his
fellow"; pri-?TrrTan Jfeai to tTTein the
Bible and .'Tox' Boak of "Martyrs. '
It was! a fine answer that he rave to the
clerk of the peace, who advised him to
gain his" liberation by recanting : "Sir,
the law hath provided two ways of obey
ing; the one, to do that which I (n ray
conscience believe I am bound to do ac
tively ; and when I cannot fby. activity,
theti I ami willing to lie down and suffer
whatever they shall do unto me.','.. And
it showed" a vein, of. humor in. his charac
ter, when he replied .to , a Quaker wlio
had come to visit him, and who declar
ed that the Lord had ordered him to
! "ii !
search, for Buoyaa ia half the prisona of
England : If. tho Lord had sent you,
you need not have taken so much trouble
to find me out; for the Lord knows I
have been a prisoner ia Bedford jail for
the last twelve 7 years." He wrote the
first part of the ."Pilgrim's ' Progress r

would not be until the father of the de
fendant was dead. From this decision
the plaintiff appealed to the court above,
where tho questions at issue were argued
beforo theLord Chief Justico ofEngland
Sir Alexander Cockburn,' who is now
so prominent in the controversy concern
ing the treaty of Washington and full
bench. The result wa3 a disapproval oj
the decision appealed from, and a unani
mous judgement for the plaintiff.
The law affecting marriage engage
ments is concisely stated by Mr. Justice
Ryles in the opinion which he delivered
on this occasion. ' "An csprcss precon
tract of marriage," he says, "places the
man or woman in the condition or status
cf betrothment In this state there are
certain mutual duties. The woman for
instance, may not, without a breach,
marry another man, although it is possi
ble he may die before the futuro day ap
pointed for tho marriage, whether al
ready fixed, or contingent on a future
event. So the man cannot during the
stipulated period of betrothment, with
out a breach of contract, marry another
woman, though she may die in the mean
time; so for one of the parties to break
tS the mutual engagement by an express
refusal to perform it tbongh before the
day seems to be equally a breach of the
contract, for it puts an end to the con
dition of bctrothmsnt, which, , according
to the contract, was to continue." :
TLis decision is an emphatic recognir-
tion'of betrothment as a legal status, in
ferior to that of marriage, it is true, but
nevertheless of great' importance, con-
fering certain well - defined dutie3.
Among these is the right of each of the
parties to insist upon .. marriage p at the
ime' agreed upon between thetii and the
duty! of each, not to break " the existing
engagement -or make, alike engagement
with another, during the continuance " of
the status. Those Icgarco'nsequences of
a mutual agreement to marry accord so
o'osely with the plainest ethical require
ments that they at once command them
selves to approval, in 'spice of the pecu-
iar qlass of cases that give rise to their
enunciation in their courts. ' , ' '
OP those who eo'flippantly talk about
'"Darwinism," how many havo ever lead
Darwin's. works? How many can clearly
statoiwhat they mean when they sny
"Darwinism"? Darwin ia sneered at in
conversation, and he is sometimes held
up to reproach in the pulpit. But when
we tukc .up a thoughtful es3ay upon any
rrtbjefct connected with the breeding of
animals or the cultivation and improve
ment, of plants, we do' not read far be
foro wc come across" "Darwin ?y?-' In
deed,! he has said a great deal, and it is
not at all. what he is by many represent
ed td have said. . Never was author
more earful with hi3 facts or more'scrupu
lous in giving authority for- every state
ment,' His "Animals anrf rionts under
Domesticatloa''"is one cf themoat woul-
erful storehouses of knowledge in the
languge,'and it is hardly possible," for
one td write intelligently about , animals
and plants unless he unconsciously gives
some facts from this author, even if he
does not pretax it with ' .Darwin says,.
If we hvere asked what book hxjour libra
ry we jiooi-t freqaentJy refer to, what toI
nan w6 fcould least spare, wo should be
obligou to say ".Darwin s Animals and
Plants under Domestication." Not only
do- we find here a woderful accumulation'
of facts, but most copious references to
the. scuurces whence they derived; and
when f 'Darwin says" that such and such
is the case, he gives on e altuadautclue to
find if he-suys correctly. ' K
-sopne moro industriously gathered
facts cor more modostly stated the con
clusions to which these facts seemed to
point.' While we can not always follow
Darwin m his deductions, we can heartily
commend Lis books to all seeker3 alter

Our Greenwood Letter.
Greenwood, May, 29th. 1ST2,
Dear, Herald : We were visited
last nijrht with one of the most terrific
thun Ict storms th3 country has witness
cdbrsorue time. ' But this morning
thej sun is shooting its warm rays down
on the hundreds and thousands of acres
of wheat, oats, corn and ' Barley, which
at the present time give3 a fine ap'pear
anceto 'the rich agricultural country,
that surrounds the beautiful town cf
G roenwood. Five years sgo when I first
pitched my tent on these prairies it was
a ba'd and desolate scene' : But what' a
change five years ha3 brought about ! I
can now stand in ray dooryard and count
45 farmhouse?, and beautiful groves are
springing up around each of these house.
Add to thn the cluster of houses that
constitute Greenwood, and the beauties
of nature, which cannot escape the eye,
and one would almost ask "is this Pari-
dise. However the high winds make it
very;unpleasant here at times, yet which
it is calm and still, ' a stranger' coming
la from the cast, looking down from In
dependent ridge upon the valley below,
would exclaim "is this the, Garden of
Farmers are generally through - plant

wereiunablo to get the seed. The ;nia-
sons are at work on the foundation ' of
the new church which is Jbeiug built at
this place. I understand . the. ..trustees
have let the contract to G. Rouse of
Ashland, who will have it completed by
the 20th of July. The Brethren and
Methodists have a Union Sabbath School
at Conn Chapel, with 82 pupils in atten
dance. " The Rev. Mr. Baker was ; or
dained last week and will take charge of
the Christian church at this 'place'
Grain is on the rise, and farmers are
ookiog pleasant. Our merchants are

have five or six cars on tho sida tract,

Conkling and Loran on Sum

, "A motion to rescind tesolution for final
adjournment Juna 3, elicited a long and
bitter uebate, participated m by a ma
jority bf Senators.'"" 'Messcr. Conkling
aind Logan wcro particularly severe upon
Messrs. Sumner' and"" Sell art", e!fSr ging
tl;em x with cmbarassing And c delaying
publiq buisiness, eppeoially bf Mr. Sum
ner's Bpcech, Mr. Logan said,-' I tell the
Senator from Massachusetts that ha will
find a reponse to that malignant speech
id every crutch that aids a wounded sol
dier on his wayf through 'the world; in
cjery wooden arm, and grieved heart of
every widowed motner mourning lor Ler
patriot son, that will overwhelm Liu and
all his oratory. These will speak in thun
der tones in defenceofthe most gallant
soldiers that ever lived in atiy nation on
earth. Loud applause 'in the "galleries,
which, with difficulty, was' suppressed.
Mr. Conkling advocated the rescinding
resolution to adjourn on "Monday and
leive. the end of tho session open eo as
toput out of power anybody that would
again 'embarrass' public buisness as it
wasdorie.yesterday. Mr. Conkling crit
icized the course of Sumner ' and Schuiz
inioccupying th time bf the 'Senlt by
political speeches.' The character of those
delivered: yesterday he thought Smaner
would live loupr enough to regret his
speech", which would return like a boom
erarang and strik6 a deadly blow. - -
Mr. Lrgan was not surprised at the
anxiety of Democrats to acljounr after the
malignant and cruel attack made in their
interest. If a cahed session was the re
sult, it cannot now bo laid at the door
of tho friends of the administration, but
at the door of two Senators, who have
been so studiously attacking the admin
istration. He announced that ll the ses
sion was extended, he wouid attempt the
defence against one cf the most malig
nant assaults ever made upon an honest
man. The assault made yesterdayupon
the' President was t for no .deliberative
body. on earth ; it was , fit enly for tho
hustings,1 and should have been uttered
only by the lips f tome stump orator,
whd knew no courtesies 'or decencies. ;
lie further denounced the speeches of
Messrs. . Sumner and Schurz, as they
made interest for the Democratic party,
and because the man aimed at was sure to
ba nominated in Philadelphia.
The Senate rescinded the motion for
final adjournment on Monday next, by a
vote of 40 tolfi.
Every one of the live Ohio Republicans

call which led to the Cincinnati Conven-tion-j-Gen.

i We aro very glad "to notice "that the
latest style of ladies shoe 13 reported as
a low sort of half shoe broad on tho solo,
square at the tee?, and above all with
low broad heels, that will support the
weight of the body, tako the strain from
tne instep and maytiap will cause our
girls" to walk less like a lamo duck and
mora like fres, graceful, reliant Woman.
This shoo business has been a perfect
nuisance for a long time, and it is time
it was abated. IF tho maker ol all things
Lr.d meant us to walk and ballance our-
salvca on a little point he would no doubt
hkye grown our beels down that way and
armed them with a little sharp horny

thi bottoms of our feet are no wider

This is the season for oranges. The
peel of this fruit preserved in sugar, is
one. of the most delightful confections
which a family can use, superior to the
extracts sold m. the shops. . I he peel
hould of course be perfectly clean, and
hould be cut in long thin strps. ' Stew
n water till all the bitterness is extratod.
Throw away the water ' and stew again
.for half an hour, in a thick sirup made of
a pound of sugar to one .of peel, with
just water enough. Put away, in a cooj
place, for flavoring puddings, pies, etc.
For this purpose, it should be chopped
very fine. No better or cheaper flavor
ing can be furnished to a household.
