the burden of every thought. This
anxiety for the safety of Chicago and
her people was universal , and as the
night closed in and no dispatches in
dicating riot were received a sigh of
thankfulness was breathed by all.

The Poet Preacher.
A recent issue of the Chicago
In tor-Ocean contains A portrait of Rov.
G. W. Crofts , pastor o ! the Congrega
tional church pf this city , and views of
the log cabin in which ho was born and
of Margaret Fuller's island. The bio
graphical sketch of this popular
preacher is as follows :
George W. Crofts was born April 9 , 1M1 , In
Manchester precinct , Uoono county. Illinois.
Ills mil-cuts were originally of Middlebury ,
Vt. , but at on early Ante removed to Ohio ,
and from thence to Illinois In 1B41. The IOR
cabin in which he wits born was of the most
primitive character. In it there was not a
nail or a plcco of iron. Its roof was of
"shakes" and the floor was raado of hewn
logs. H had but ono window , and the only
real boards about the building were those
which formed the door.
The lotf cabin In which he was born and
the more pretentious ono of hewn lops his
father afterwards constructed have long
since passed away , but the "old stone school
houso" which forms the subject of ono of his
poems , still stands Just across the road from
bin father's old farm , Its walls intact , a
sturdy witness to early struggles and sacri
fices. In his tenth ycur ho removed with his
parents to Mount Morris , 111. From the time
ho commenced learning1 to read ho had a sin
gular desire to understand how books and
newspapers were made , and on learning that
there was a printing ofllce In Mount Morris
ho experienced great uneasiness until the
mystery was pr.ictlc.illy solved. In his
eleventh year he entered the Gazette offlco as
nn apprentice. In the course of three months
the ofllco was purchased by Allen &
Atkins the Hon. C. C. Allen ,
now of Missouri , and General S. D. Atkins ,
of Frccport , 111. , and removed to Savannah ,
111. , where they established the Savannah
HugisUtr. They hud become so warmly at
tached to the little enthusiast In the printing
business that they took him along with them.
The Uciflstcr lived but about nine mouths ,
when the subject of this sketch returned to
Mount Morris , and attended the village
school. In the fall of ISM Mr. Allen re
moved the ofllco to Dlxon , 111. , and uetfim the
publication of a paper there. Again the help
of his little friend was applied for and cheer-
"ully granted. Ho well remembers how in
lurrying papers in Ltixon ono cold , frosty
ivcning his feet were badly fro/en , mid how
10 went to bed in a tireless room and lot
hem thaw out at leisuro.
In less than a year ho again returned to
ilount Morris , this tiino entering the sem-
nnry. In the soring of Ib55 ho went to
Mount Carroll , 111. , and entered the printing
fllco there us a comi > ositor. The paper was
lublished by Prof. D. II. Wheeler , who at
his time Is the honored president of Alle
gheny college , wearing all the learned titles ,
"hiring this time ho "sot up" a part of
Jharlcs Simmer's famous speech on "Tho
2rimo Against Kansas , " which fired his
/outhful blood , and from that day until now
lie has been a staunch republican In politics.
' 11 the fall of this year ho returned again to
vlount Morris , having saved his summer's
ivagcs , and re-entered the seminary. In the
spring of 1850 ho went to Oregon , 111 , , and
x > ok a position as compositor in the Reporter
office , a position ho hold for nearly four con-
seeutlvo years. The scenery around Oregon
's very romantic , and was to him a continued
'east , and aided largely In molding his
noughts. Many a time did ho climb to
.ho top of "Eagle's Nest" the spot
iVlicro Margaret Fuller , July 4 , 18411 , com
posed her famous poem , "Gatiymcdo to His
Eagle. " and drink from this glorious foun
tain of inspiration. This place Is now a sumner -
: ner resort.
In his nineteenth year Mr. Crofts went to
jprmgllold , 111. , and entered the Illinois
State university , to prepare for the mjnistry.
While hero his first attempts at poetry were
: mide. and several of his effusions were pub
lished in the Register and other papers. In
180-1 ho began preaching , and has continued
steadily in hiscallinguntilnow. Ho preached
tc-n and a half years in Oregon , 111. ; ten and
a half years in Sandwich , 111. , and for the
lust two and a half years has been pastor of
: ho Congregational church of Council Bluffs ,
Mr. Crofts has been a regular contributor
o the Intcr-Oceun for several years , and his
best work has appeared In this paper. Sev
eral of his songs have been set to music. The
most popular of thcso is "Move Forward. "
This song appears In the "Gospel Choir , " by
Ira D. Sankcy and James McGrundian. It Is ,
It seems , a favorite with Mr. Moody , and has
been sung at his great meetings. Shortly
after Mr. Crofts went to Council Bluffs a
mass meeting was held in the opera house ,
where Mr. Moody was to preach. As Mr.
Moody came upon the stage ho said to the
singers and others sitting there , "Move for
ward I" There was a spontaneous movement
to the front. The next day the song was
written , und at once set to muslo by Prof.
Towner , who was with Mr. Moody at the

An Unsuccessful Jump.
About 8 o'clock Thursday evening the
police were notified that there was a
horse in the sewer excavation on First
avenue. Several members of the force
repaired to the spot and spent some time
in getting the animal out , as the ditch
is about seven foot deep. No ono recog
nized the horse and ho was taken to the
city stable. Yesterday evening Pace
& Schmidt , marketmon nt 78 ! West
Broadway , made complaint that someone
ono had stolen a horse from their stable
, ho previous evening. After a few in
quiries it was found that the animal
rescued from the sewer answered the
description of the missing horse , and
the gentlemen were soon in possession
of their . stolen . . Investigation
showed that the thief had jumped the
horse across three sewer ditches , but
'ailed in the next attempt , and was
compelled to abandon his prize , as ho
dared not summon aid to assist in get
ting him out. His chances of escaping
are more favorable than if ho had been
able to keep the animal with him.

The Damsel's DOR Departed.
As two young ladies were "walking
down Broadway" yesterday afternoon ,
accompanied by n canine friend , they
ivero considerably startled by a savage
looking bulldog that dashed from an
open doorway and tackled their escort.
After recovering somewhat from their
surprise they rallied to the aid of their
champion. For a few minutes the air
was full of flying petticoats , fighting
dogs , savage growls and cries for help.
A gentleman hurried to the relief of the
troubled damsels and finally succeeded
in separating the angry brutes. Hold
ing the aggressor nt arm's length ho
advised the ladies to remove their pet
from the vicinity. They evidently
thought the suggestion politic , for each
one took a firm hold of his dogship's
collar and disappeared around the cor
ner at a lively gait.

A Hay Festival.
A hay festival recently hold in Gold-
mitnArk. , is thus described by the
Little Rock Gazette : "Tho stores were
nicely decorated in Garlands of hay ,
wagons were wrapped in the same , while
hay gashes and hat bands were the chief
articles of regalia worn by the citizens.
The procession was plain , but neverthe
less imposing , and when the hay king ,
seated on his throne , with attendants ,
drawn by three yoke of cattle to a hay-
bedecked wagon , pasicd through the
streets n mighty snout of 600 voices
'made the welkin ring. ' Following his
majesty was the hay queen , beautifully
attireu in a hay-colored dress , a perfect
picture of beauty and grace , with her
maids of honor. Then came young la
dies on horseback , buggies , horsemen
and pedestrians , and triumphantly in
the roar was the Grand Prairie band ,
composed of boys , tin pails , bolls , etc.
At the grand stand a halt was made
and several appropriate selections were
rendered by the organ choir. Then the
mayor in a few happy remarks , pre
sented the king , Thomas Able , with a
crown amid the going-up of cheers.
The queen , Miss Hallio Shrout , In the
speech of the presentation , was highly
commended for her industry and the
devotion she had shown to her father's
hay interests this season. "
Development of the Tenderfoot.
The Coffeyvillo Journal says : "When
n man first comes to Kansas from the
east ho dresses well , goes to church
regularly , and carries a meagre bank
account. The second year ho brings
out his second best suit of clothes that
ho were 'back in the settlements' and
figures on the profit of his cattle and
hogs and the amount of interest that
will bo coming to him. The third year
ho comes out in brown overalls , with
but one suspender , 'points with pride'
to his broad acres , well improved farm ,
and fat stock , and talks about bonds and
local politics as ho smokes his pipe and
sips his coffee. Then there are not in
fluences enough in the east to draw him
back. Ho goes to church when the
weather is favorable , sends his boys to
collcgo , gets 'mother' u now silk dross
every now and then in consideration of
her not insisting upon his broadcloth or
blacking his boots. Ho is every inch a
man , nevertheless. "
