How seme Democrats Down Sontli Feel.
Dr. Felton of Georgia, along with
Alexander Stephens sometimes speaks
out in meeting. Here are his latest
opinions on the course of the demo
cracy, they will bear careful reading.
He has now come out flat-footed, and
denounces the Democratic party as the
betrayer of every right they have pre
tended to dafend. He denounces the
course of Nnrthern and Western Dem
ocrats in unloading everything upon
the South and blaming that section for
all the political misfortunes. He re
fers to the attempted political legisla
tion of the last session, and says that
it was not the attempt of the South,
but of the Northern a: id Western
Democrats. The Southern members
reluctantly agreed to support the re
peal of the election laws, and of the
law authorizing the, presence of troops
at the polls. This, he says, is a good
instance of the course that has been
pursued, for, although the South did
not lead in the attempted repeal, it has
to baar all the blame. He announces
to his constituents that he can ao long
er consistently attend the caucuses of
the democratic party.

went to bed, as he pictured the scene in
the morning. When the morning dawned
he rose witn a glow of anticipation on his
face, and as it slowly faded away satdown
upon the side of the bed and dejectedly
cut open the bottom of his own carefully
sewn trouser-legs; and when his unsus
pecting chum asked what he was doing,
sighed and . said, sadly, "Oh, nothing;"

Suggestiv Events of a short Railway
First comes our new bridge with its
intricacies, with its hundreds of em

to laboring men are these rich mono

whisky fumes, so early in the morn
ing! I looked with amazement, and I
saw another scene, a pale worn moth

the meals that brought the means
that furnished her child the fatal draft.
"All aboard" ended the reverie.
When all seated, met a friend
from Glenwood, who narrated the in
cident of Landlord Nye. attempting
to burn the Custor House and under
arrest, and the solution was plain,
whisky had mined him, and he would
ruin others. Next in came a vener
able looking old gentleman, carrying a
youth in an invalid's chair ; be was pale
and wan; fine cut, intellectual fea
tures marked him as a young man of
no mean birth. Red Oak was their
station, many offered to assist the
father to help the young men into a
wailing carriage. Oa iaquiry we found
that he and a boon companion in a
playful scuffle, became unmtentionaly
angered, the prisoner striking his
friead a blow, which he has been sen
tenced to imprisonment for life. Aye,
thus it gaes, a young man in the prime
of life, sentenced.to a living death for
an accidential blow which ho would
give worlds to withdraw, while we are
granting thousands of men liberty to
maliciously slay their millions.

the greatness of his city, his wife and

it worked admirably; ray mind

Physiology of a Fowl's Gizzard.
Says Robert Jcnuiugs: Experiments
havo demonstrated that' what may be
called tho gastric juice in fowls has not
sufficient power to uissolv their food,
without the aid of tho grinding action of
the gizzard. Bei'oro tho food is prepared
tor digestion, therefore, the grains must
be subjected to a trituatiug process; uud
such as are not sufficiently bruised in this
maimer, belo:e passing into the gizzard
is, iu this respect, iiicchaoicnl, this organ
serving us a mill to grind the food to
pieces, and then, by means of its power
ful muscles., pressing it gradually into
the intcstiues, in the form of pulp. Tuo
power of this organ is said to i.esutiicieut
to pulverize, hollow globules of giass in a
very short time, and solid masses of the
same substances in a few weeks. The
rapidity of this process seems to be pro
portionate generally to the. size of the
bird. A chicken, tor example breaks up
such substances as are received iuto its
stomach less rapidly than the capon;
while a goose jKirforms the same opera
tion sooner thau either. Needles, and
even lancets, given turkeys, have been
broken in pieces and avoided without any
apparent injury to the stomach. The rea
son undoubtedly i, that the larger spec
ies of birds have thicker and more power
lul organs of digestion.
It has long been the general opinion
that from some delicioncy in the digestive
apparatus, fowls aie obliged to report to
the use of stones and giuvel, in order to
enable them to dispose of the food which
they consume. .Some have supposed that
the Use of these stones is to sheath the
gizzard, in order to tit it to break iuto
smaller fragments tlio hard angular sub
stances which niiylit bo swallowed; they
have also been considered to have a med
icinal effect; others have iinagiucd th:it
they acted as absorbeuts for uudue quan
tities of acids in the stomach or as stimu
lants to digestion; while it has ever been
gravely aanertud that tiiey contribute di
rectly to nutrition.
.11: pea ted experiments, however, have
cs'.abi-siied that pebbles are not at ail
necessary to the trituiatiou of the hardest
kinds oi' substances which can bo iut:o
duced into their stomachs; and of course,
the usual food of lowls can be bruised
without their aid. They do, however,
serve a useful auxiliary puipose. When
put in motion by the. muscics, they are
caj-a lc of producing eHe-ds upon the
contents of the stoiuucu; thus assisting to
grind (town tho grain, and sepaialiug its
parts, the digestive lluid or gastric juice
comes muie readily in contact with it.
The genius of our civilization in its
physiological aspect is to make spend
thrifts of us all of our vital riches. It in

1. Paris Green that has been four
inouths in the soil, no longer remains as
such, but has passed iuto some less solu
ble state, and is unaffected by the ordin
ary solvents of tho soil.
2. When applied in small quantities,
such as are alone necessary in destroying
injurioui a insects, it does not affect the
health of tho plant. $
Z. The power ot tho soil to hold ar
cenious Jtcid and arseuites in soluble
form will prevent water from becoming
poisoned unless the green is used in ex
cess of any requirements as to insecticide.
