Has the reader ever had a tussle with a
Bengal tier in f ull vigor and appetite?
lia-i it cLauced him to be in a balloon when

oc urroJ to him to have been indulging a
couimenda'jltj curioit in the remoter re

suddenly severed the counecion between
himself and tht world without ? " These
are forms of uneueinea not to be lightly
treated of. They shrink iuto nothing be

ast'onishascnt, and horror it wai my lot to
experience on a certain never to-he-forgotten
evening of January, 'i'orty-nine.

In place cf that mental tumult wh ch, for
a long period, attended the renieuiLrn e
of the incident in c:uestion' I now find my
self able to narrate wl.h indifference, nay,
even with a entile, the circum.itance to
which, but ricrntly, my most intimate
friends dur.-t b.a:d!y ha ard an allusion.
The Guild of Lurnpttora reprotents one
of the most ancient and honored of Lon
d n's civic inetitutl ms. What they are,
vlty they are, I have not the remotest idea,
They have a La 1, solely, it would seem,
for purposes of hospitiiity. They give
dinners of inconceivable aucculency and

kings, who don't always come, and princes,
who generally do, and they also invito :nc.

Pretexts were never wanting for a Lum
peter feed. The ro:overy of the chief city
magistrate from a bilious attack, the break
ing up of the front", the birth of a son and
he r to the Ban of Croatia, the arrival of a
piebald elephant at the gardens of the
Zoological Society, such were among the
events I could recall as Laving suggest d
feastful rejoicings. Hut that to which I
have now to refer was to b ! regarded as a
private and peculiar gathering, almost, in

adoption of a similar costume on the part
of their guests would be interpreted by
Lumpeters as the most delicate return that
could bo oiler ed lor thoir hospitality. I,
myself, invariably s;:ortcrd tho fancy dress
in question. ' -
On the eventful day I have mentioned,
it happened, that I had been detained at
chambers later than usual, and on reach
ing home had barely time to dress. While
doing so, I received an anxious message
from a friend who was to have accompa

To my astonishment, acrovd, dense and
still augmentiiiT. was gathered alout the
door. It was only through tLo aid of a
friendly policeman th-.t I was enabled to
make my way. " What was the matter?'.
It was presently announced that the

Bobadil de Pete-Fauve, Lad. at the last
moment, accepted an invitation to dine at
Tho character of the assembly had un

reinforcement of a hun Ired and twenty

mass of p; ect ttora lined the hall, the pas

highly-attired society ia light blue over
alls, such as might be worn by a stable
man, was not to be thought of. Ah ! an
idea. Just within the door, near the wall,
but with space to get behind it, stood,
the large screen against which I had been
prersed. Capturing a waiter, I drew him
with me into that Iriendly shelter.
Here, help, wf man. Can"t get back.

PHTTFOIIM OF TIIE REFl'B! ICAN
Philadelphia, June, 6th 1872.
"The Republican party of the United
States assembled in National Conven
tion in the City of Philadelphia, on the
fifth and fcixth day of June, 1872, again
declares its faith appeals to its his
tory, and announces its position upon
the questions before the country. First,
during eleven years of supremacy, it has
accepted with grand courage the solemn
duties of the time; it has suppressed a
igantic rebellion, emancipated four
millions of slaves, decreed equal citizen
ship of all and established universal suf
frage. Exhibiting unparalleled magnani
mity, it criminally punished no man for
political offences and it warmly welcomed
all who proved their loyalty by obeying
the laws and dealing justly with their
neighbors: it has steadily decreased with
firm hand the resultant disorders of the
great war, and initiated a wise policy to
wards the Indian-. The Pacific K. It. and
similar vast enterprises have been gen
erously aided and successful' conducted
the public lands frecley given to actual
settlers, immigration protected and en
couraged, and a full acknowledgement of
naturalized citizens lights secured from
European powers, uniform national cur
rency has been provided for; repudiation
frowned down, national credit sustained
under most extraordinary burdens, and
new bonis negotiated at lower rate.
Revenues have been carefully collected
and honestly applie 1. Despite the an
nual large reductions from rates of1 tax
ation, the public debt has been reduced,
during General Grant's Presidency, at
the rate of one hundred million dollars a
year, a great financial crisis has been
avoided, and peace and plecty prevail
throughout the land. Menacing foreign
difficulties have been peacefully and hon
ccably compromised, and the honor and
power of the nation kept in high respect
throughout the world. This glorious
recrrdf the past is tho parties be.-t
pledge for the future. We believe the
people will not entrust the government
to any party or combina'nn of men com
posed of those who chiefly have resisted
every step of this beneficial progress.
Second. C mplete liberty and exact
equality in the enjoyment of all c'v:l, politic-land
public rights should be esta
blished and effectually maintained
throu?hout the union by efficient appro
priate State and Federal legislation, nei
ther law or its administration, should
admit of any discrimination in respect to
citizens by reason of race, creeds, color,
or previous condition of servitude.
Third The recent amendments to the
national constitution should be cordia'.ly
sustained, because they are right not
mearly tolerated, because they are law
and should be carried out according
to their spirit, by appropriate legislation,
the enforcement of which can only be
safely entrusted to the party that se
cured the amendments.
Fourth The national government
should seek to maintain an honerable
peace with all nations, protecting it ci
tizens everywhere, and sympathizing
wilh all people who strive for greater
Fifth Any system of the civil service
under which subordinate positions of the
government are considered rewards for
mere party zeal, is fatally demoralizing,
and we therefore favor a reform of the
system by law which shall abolish the
evils of patronage, and make houesty,
efficiency and fidelity qualifications for
public position, without practically creat
ing a life tenure of office.
Sixth We are opposed to further
grants to corporations and monopolies,
and demand that the national dominion
be set apart for free homes for the
Seventh The annual revenues, after
paying current debts, should furnish a
moderate balance for the reduction of
principal and revenue, so much as may
ba derived from a tax on tobacco and
liquors, or be raisedhy duties on importa
tions, the duties of which should be so
adjusted as to aid in securing remunera
tive wages to the labor jt, cnJ promoting
the industries, growth and prosperity of
the entire country.
Eighth We hold in undying honor
the soldiers and sailor3 whose valor saved
the union, their pensions are a sacred
debt of the nation, end the widows and
orphans of those who died for their
country are entitled to the care of a gen
erous and grateful people. We favor such
additional legislation as will extend the
bounty of the government to all of our
soldiers and sailors who were honorably
discharged, and who, in time of duty,
became disabled, without regard to the
length of service or cause of such dis
Ninth The doctrine of Great Britain
and other European powers concerning
allegiance 'Once a subject, always a sub
ject-sharing at 'ast, through the efforts
of the Republican party, been abandon
ed, and the AmeiL-an idea of the indi
viduals right to transfer his allegiance,
having been accepted by the European
nations; it is the duty of our govern
ment to guard with jealous care the
rights of adopted citizens against the as
sumption of unauthorized claims by their
former governments, and we urge oon
tinual and careful encouragement and
protection to voluntary immigration.
Tenth The franking privilege ought
to be abolished, and a way proposed for
a speedy reduction in rates of postage.
Eleventh Among questions which
prss for attention, is that which concerns
the relation of capital and labor, and the
Republican party recognize the duty of
so shaping legislation, as to secure a full
protection and the amplest field for capi
tal and for labor the creatorof capital the
largest opportunities, and a just thare of
the mutual profits of those two great
servants of civilization.
Twelfth We hold that Congress and
the President have only fulfilled an im
portant duty in their measures for the
suppression of violent and treasonable
organizations, in certain lately rebellious
regions, and for the protection of the
ballot box, and therefore they are enti
tled to the thanks of the Nation.
Thirteenth We censure the repudia
tion of the public debt in any form or
disguise, as a national crime, and we
witness with pride the reduction of
the principal on the national de' t, an 3 of
rates of interest upon the balance, and
confidently expect that our National cur
rency will be perfected by speedy rcsump

Fourteenth The Republican party is
mindful of its obligations to the loyal
women of America for their devotion to
the cause of freedom. Their admission
to wider fields of usefulness is received
with satisfaction, and the honest demand
of any class of citizens for additional
rights should be treated with respectful
Fifteenth We heartily approve of the
action of Congress in extending amnesty
to those lately in rebellion, and rejoice in
the growth of peace and fraternal feeling
throughout the land.
Sixteenth The Republican party pro
poses to respect the rights reserved by
the people to themselves as carefully as
the powers delegated by them to the
State and Territorial government. It
disapproves of the resort to unconstitu
tional laws for the purpose of removing
the evils by the interference with the
rights not surrendered by the people to
'ither State or National government.
Seventeenth It is the duty of the
general government to adopt such meas
ures as will tend to encourage American
commerce and ship building. .
E ghteenth We-believe the modest
patriotism, .the earnest purpose, sound
judgment, practical wisdom, incorrupti
ble integrity and illustrious services of
Ulysses S. Grant, have commended him
to the hearts of the American people,
and with him at our head we start today
on a new mareh'to victory.
To Crawl Into a Pint Bottle.
State to the company that it was proved
some years ago that to crawl into a pint
bottle was an impossibility, but the rap

proved that any person may crawl into a
pint bottle as easily as into his bed.
Having thus prefaced your intentions,
vou get a pint bottle and place it in tho
middle of the room ; then go outside cl
the door, and creeping into the room
upon all four, say: "Ladies and gen
tlemen, this is crawling in to a pint bot

the Wiiliams College reunion at New
York city, was that of the suspension of

violation of the rules of the College.
His offense consisted -in reciting a poem
entitled "Thanatopsis," before it had

result was that Bryant graduated at Yale,

Several gentlemen followed in brief

nomination of the successor of Wilson
be left to that gentleman.

room to such children. A little delicate

for obstinacy, anu ne thought it his diicy
to conquer the child's will. One night
he said : "Why do you always scream
so, when you know you will be purt

the little fellow; "I don't mind yon
whipping me, if you oluy stay with me.','
The father's eyes opened from that mo

Flavorluff Willi Ltuvef,
D. Bury, in the Garden, eaya.-
Leaves are more or less popular for gar
nishing, but it has often fcurprised nne
that they are so very little used for fla
voring. With the exception of twtct
and bitter herbs grown chiefly for the
purpose, and parsley, which is neitbfr
bitter nor weet, but the most popular ef
all flavoring plants, comparatively few
other leaves are used. Perhaps I ought
also to except tho sweet bay, which i
popular in lice and other puddings aad
certainly imparts one of the most pleas
ant and exquisite flavors. But, on the
other hand, what a waste there is of tho
flavoring properties of peach, almond,
and laurel leaves, t-o richly charged with
the essence of bitter almonds, so much
used in most kitchens ! Of course such
leaves must be used with caution, butm
must the spirit as well. An infusion of
these could readily be made, cither green
or dry, and a tea or table spoonful of tbe
flavoring liquid used to taste.
One of the most useful and harmless
of all leaves fir flavoring is that of the
common syringp. In most gardens thcro
is a prodigious waste of o'ery flavor in
the sacrifice of ti e external leave and.
their partially blancLcd foot-stalks.
Scores of sticks cf celery are cut up into
soup, when the outsides would flavor it
equally well or better.
'J he young leaves of gooseberries ad
ded to bottled fruit give a fresher flavor
and a greener color to pies and tarts. -The
leaves of the flowering currant givo
a sort of intermediate flavor between
that of blaek currants and red. Orsnire,
citron and lemon leave impart a flavor
ing equal to that of the fruit and rind
combined, and somewhat differen frohi
both A few leaves added to vies or
boiled in the milk used to bake with rice
or formed into crusts or paste, impart an
admirable and almost inimitable bouquet.
In short, leaves, are not half-eo much
used for seasoniDj purposes asHhey
might be. j

How exquisitely absurd to teach a girl
