What Came in a Potato.
A friend of our3 received a day or
two ago through the post office from
Olympia, Washington Territory ,a round
ish, irregular sort of package, which on
examination proved to contain a large
potato. Further investigation showed
that the potato had been cut in two
and the inside scooped out, and in the
cavity were found flowers and leaves,
which, as he learned by a note previ-
1 ously received, had been picked in a
garden in the open air on the 20th dav
of December. The llowers, pansies, ge
raniums, and others, were a3 fresh and
bright as if they had been gathered
within an hour, though their journey
across the continent had occupied fif
teen days. Olympia is in about the lat
itude of Quebec, though its winter cli
mate is not more severe than that of
Memphis. Voreester Sjyy.
We present the following from the
New Orleans correspondence of the
New York Times:
There is no rule without an excep
tion, and in all the south the chief ex
ception to the general rule that all col
ored men are republicans is to be found
in the person of P. B. S. Pinchback.
This man was at one time the most in
fluential negro leader in Louisiana, and
perhaps of all hp profited most by his
pojkion. lie was the idol of the color
ed people, but for his own benefit, he
lias betrayed the trust they imposed in
him ; he has accepted ofiice under the
pretender Nichols; aud to-day he is
cursed, hated, and despised by every
black man and woman ia the State.
Their only excuse for him is that he is
more white than colored, and in truth
this is the only plea that can be urged
in bis be-half, for if ever a man had
cause to be a republican to the death,
to hate southern democrats as long as
life lasted, and to continually offer
thanks to God for the coming of the
Union army and the liberation of the
slave, that man is Pinchback. The .o
ry of his life .orcibly illustrates some
of the beauties of the much lamented
"days that are gone." His mother was
a beautiful colored girl, more Indian
than negro. His father- was a Major
Holmes, well known as an extensive
planter, deep drinker, and good liver.
Having a passion for poetry, and being
deep in his cups, he named the boy
Percy Byssho Shelly Pinchback Percy
Bysshe Shelly out of respect to his fa
vorite author, and Pinchback because,
as he said himself, the child was not
gold, not copper, not white, not black,
not Indian in short, neither one thing
or the other, but a little of all. What
kind of a life "little Pinch" led under
the care of his father and owner may
be gathered from the following: One
day he was with Major Holmes ou a
Mississippi steamboat; the sun was hot,
and in the shade of an awning the
planter ami i.ii friends played poker
for high stakes and drank deep draughts
of iced whisky punch. The slave boy
sat in a corner watching the game and j
waiting for orders. While watching in j
thio way the captain stumbled across!
him, and, with a curse, demanded, i
"Whose nicrger are you?" "Well, Mas-
sa Cap'in, I don't 'zactly know; 1 war
Major Holmes' boy, but he done bet
me on two little pair aud lost. I's got
to see the g.une through 'fore I can an
swer your question."
The boy had to'd the exact truth.
His unnatural father having no other ;
stake, bet him against 1,000 and lost, j
To-day the boy so gambled away, hav- j
ing risen to power and p'.aco by the
support of black men who were slaves :
like himaelf, deserts his party and his j
race and takes sides against them with i
men who, like Holmes, thought it was
good sport to bet a nigger boy upon a
"little pair." It is no wonder he is ha
ted and despised by the men ho as de
serted, when they most need the help
of his cool head and ready wit.
The :i;m Whaoto-is U Paper.
Phillip Gilbert Haraerton, in his ad
rninible papers o:i "Intellectual Life,'
thus talks to a man who "stopped his
paper:" "Newspapers are to the civil
ized world what the daily house talk is
to the members of the family ihey
keep our daily interest in each other,
they save us from the evils of isolation.
To live as a member of ihe great white
race that has filled Europe and Ameri
ca and colonized or conquered whatev
er territory it has be3n pleased to occu
py ; to share from day to day its thoughts
its cares, its inspirations, it is necessa
ry that every man shou'.d read his pa
per. Why are the French peasants so
bewildered and at sea?" It is because
they tiever read a newspaper. And
why are the inhabitants of the United
States, though spread over a territory
of fourteen times the area of France,
so much more capable of concert of ac
tion, so much more alive and modern,
so much more interested in new discov
eries of all kinds, and capable of select
ing and utilizing the best of them? It
is because the newspapers penetrate
everywhere; and even the lonely dwell
er on the prairie or in the forest is not
intellectually isolated from the great
currents of public life which flow
through the telegraph and press."

Sugar Used in the United States.
The people of this country are noted
for importing or buying of other ua
tions, enormous quantities of goods,
costing immense sums in 'gold, that
might as well be made at home. Sugar
is one of these.
The amount of this article yearly u ed
is truly enormous. Hard as times were
last year more than 1,000,000 tons, up
wards of 2,000,000,000 pounds.costing at
8 cents, more than 100,000,000 in gold,
besides an equal quantity of jnolasses
and syrup, was imported from abroad,
exclusive of the small amount made in
Louisiana. This year a real or pretend
ed scarcity in all tha sugar producing
regions, of the world, makes the price
much higher than usual.
The sources of making sugar in this
country are without limit. All flie ma
ples, especially the soft and sugar ma
ples, yield floods of sap ready to be boil
ed into sugar or syrup, that now ruii3
to waste all over the country, but lit
tle being utibsed. The butternut also
gives a very superior quality. This
tree is said to be the sole dependance
of the Circassians for both sugar and
syrup. Indian corn also gives it, first
as cane juice in the stalk, oeforp the
formation of ears, and afterwards as
grape sugar in the mature grain, in
quantities only limited by the demand.
The beet, containing 7 to 9 per cent,
according to the season, has been prof
itably used in California the past year,
and might undoubtedly ba used cast of
the llocky Mountains.
The United Status ought to export,
instead of importing, both sugar and

New York Times, April 23.
Jefkksox, O, April 9.
Mr. U. H. Painter, Washington, D. C.
Dear Sin: Your letter of the 51h
was duly received. You ask whether
I remember what I said in favor of
president Hayes in uiv endeaver to pro
cure his nomination at the Cincinnati
convention. I do remember it, after
what has since transpired, with indig
nation and a bitterness of soul that I
never felt before. You know with
what untiring zeal I labored for the
emancipation ofthe slaves of the South,
and to procure justice for them before
and during the time I was in congress,
and I supposed Gov. Hayes was in full
accord with me on this subject; but I
have been deceived, and betrayed, and
even humiliated by the course he" has
taken, to a degree that I have not lan
guage to e-; pi-ess. During the first
month of his administration we find
him closeted with two of the worst
and most maliguaat enemies of the
colored race that can be found iri all
that slave-cursed region, and there
consulting with thys3 m te factors
how best he can put these colored peo
ple under the iron heel of their most
bitter enemies, and reduce them to a
condition infmately worse than before
they were made free. I feel that to
have emancipated tltese people and
then to leave them unprotected would
be a crime as infamous as to have re
duced them Co slavery when they were
free, and Hayes wishes to do this to
men who had, at the hazards of their
lives, given him the votes without
which he never could have had power
to do this terribl
doubt ho meditates the destruction of
the party that elected him. A contem
plation of all this fills me with amaze
ment and inexpressible indignation.
My only consolation is that history in
forms me that better men than I ever
pretended to be have in like manner
been deceived. Some have attempted

Tarly Days la OmaLa.
Mr. Sorenson, of the Bee, has written
a very pleasant, readable book about
the early days of Omaha. It tells all
about Ilanscom's Legislature, Jones'
Post Office, the old residenters . who
lived in Iowa and voted in
Nebraska and lots of other things too
numerous to mention .nd too good to
be left unread by anybody interested
in the short past of Nebraska.
To Cass Co. people at this day how
queer this reads:
"Several bands of Sioux and other
northern Indians had been in the hab
it of roaming at will through sections
of the Territory, particularly that por
tion known as Saunders County."
No Indians there now, only tribe
known aro Greenbackers, Ed. Hall,
This must have been about the time
when Joe Brown and a lot of Platts
niouth chaps went oue to hunt Indians,
and a certain Judge, when about to at-
tack, made a speech describing Indians,
their habits, mode of attack and so on,
also the best way to surround em,
which was as follows, to wit: "Boys,
when you want to capture Indians, you
must pounce down on them at once;
one leap does the business. Now boys,
ready! Charge! with a high head and
a rolling tail and they are ours!"
It is related that J.oe Brown on bis re
turn from this trip, when asked if he
had been hunting Indians, replied he
hadn't lost any Indians as he knew of.
Well, this is'nt about Bro. Sorenson's
book: That is good, first-rate, every
body wants it. Try again, "AH," ami
come down south of the Platte, we'll
give you two books full of early " 'iiec
dotes and sich."

satisfactory prices were-obtained. The
herd of twenty-five bull., cows and
heifers, averaged Si 12 each. The cows
alone averaged S2o7. Col. J. W. Judy,
of Talluda, the great short-horn auc
tioneer, conducted the sale. About 400
people were present, including all the
prominent stock raisers in this and
adjoining counties, and several irom
Missouri. The principal purchasers
were John Potts & Sons, Jacksonville,

Bny no machines. Be deceived by
no pretended preventives to keep'
grasshoppers off trees. There is just
one way to catch and destroy young
hoppers, Ditch, Ditch, Ditch. All oth
er ways are frauds. This is tho way
to do it. Plow a deep furrow where
yoai want your ditch ; rake out the loose
dirt with a weeding hoe; put down an
other furrow ; rake out the loose dirt
again; shave down the inside till it
overhangs a little; spade down pits in
the bottom of your ditch every twenty
feet, make them the size of a spade
blade square and twenty inches deep;
watch the young hoppers get into your
ditsh, and unanimously move along it
till they strike a pit. In they go head
long and hold each other down till you
put on a spadeful of dirt and stamp it
down with vicious energy. The gener

The West Point Republican has a
very encouraging article about the
prospects of new railroads in northern
Nebraska. It says the contract for
building the C. C. & B. II. (Covington,
Columbus & Black Hills) II. It. some
70 miles further has been let. This
takes the road fromPonca, the present
terminus, to O'Neill City in Holt Co.
It has been urged against this road,
says the Republican, that it is a nar
row gauge road, and can never amount
to anything, but when the Oregon Col
umbia & Snake Iliver It. P.. reaches
Virginia City on a three ft. gauge it
will find the locomotive "Dacotah" of
the C. C & B. H. II. II. standing ready
waiting for the last spike to be driven,

then it is only a matter of a su:i.nn-r

Never give up a decaying rose buslt
j till you have tried watering it two
three times a week with soot tea.
rMake the concoction with boilin;
water, from soot taken from the chim
ney or stove in which wood is burned.
When cold, water the bush with it.
When it is used up, pour boiling l.r.L
water on the soot a second lime. Huso
bushui treated in this way will often
send out thrifty shoots, the leaves will
become large and thick, the blossoms
will greatly improve in sue and bn
more richly tinted than before. D. II

Treatment ef Girls.
How many unhappy girls have pant
dearly for the early bringing up of
their young husbands, who after tho
first glamour of love had passed, treat
their wives as they were allowed to
treat their sister, and as they saw their
fathers treat their mothers carelessly
disrespectfully, with a total want of
that considerate tenderness wh'ch is
worth all tho passionate love in tho
world. This, though they may muster
outside as excellent husbands, never
do any thing really bad. and posse.-.sing
many good and attractive qualities ct
contriving somehow to quietly break
the poor woman's heart, or haiden it
into that passive acceptance of pain",
which is more fatal to married happi
ness than even temporary enstrangc
nient. Anger itself is a safer thing
than solid hopeless indifference. Tha
best husbands I ever loet came out of
a family where, the mother, a most he
roic and self denying woman, laid down
the absolute law "girls first" not in any
authority, but first to be thought of ai
to protection an 1 tenderness. Conse
quently the chivalrous care which
these lads were taught lo show their
own sisters, naturally extended itself
to all women. They grow up true gen
tleman generous, exact, courteous of
speech, and kind of heart. In them
was tho protecting strength of man
hood which scorns to use its strength
except for protection the proud hon
esty of manhood which infinitely pre

to being twisted around one's finger, as
mean men are twisted, and mean wo
men will always be found ready to do
it; but which, I think, all honnst and

Rustic Stum rs. In certain retir
ed parts of gardens or grounds "ru-ttic
stumps," v.iisn clothed with creeping
vines, give a pleasing imprcssio.i. Tho
mass should not ba raised too big h
above the surrounding level, and yet bo
suilicient in area to prevent an insig
nificant appearance. Light, fibroua
soil should be filled in around tho roots,
allowing the latter to jet out here and
there for the vinc3 to clambor over.
As suitable plants for this purpose
an English periodical suggests the ivy
and clematis, as the former will give a
cheerful appearance to tho work during
the winter months, when th'j latter ii
taking its rest; and then throughout
the summer nothing will txced tlx
clematis with its bright verdure and
splendid llowers. And not only thee,
but it has a grace pecular to itself,
decorating every tiling it touches with
the m st charming of garlands.
Another viae might hi ailed which
would impart still greater interests to
