Of it have been frequently amused at the of Katf of i portion of the political press of this a a Moke a a but we be leave. Met for All to a a ure our to temporaries that m or too old. A a campaigner in politics to the Mere Brevet of the Profe a Ioa to 4ra�r our that we have headed most of the a in giving the later a intelligence to their a elective Partie. Of the great events of the it True and a been owing partly to our Foj Litie for such Purpo a and partly to our a Date t though in All Thi we Aee nothing to justify ungenerous feeling. We were the feet to announce Ami to advocate the Compro it a Keeae Ureon their to to Herald the accession or. Fibs re.

We have borne these puny attacks if not in silence at least with perfect Good nature making allowance As we Al ways do for motives and leaving the balance to the Good sense of our readers. Where a a bread and butter Are clearly the object our Charity in such As to prevent the right hand from knowing what the left hand doth but where misrepresentation or slander is brought in As an Sci dealt we consider that our religion warrants is in the exercise of a free pen. We have exposed and denounced and shall continue to sex Puse and denounce All clap trap politics and All Humbug politicians. If the existence of party organization is necessary to the bread and butter of demagogues they shall learn that truth and decency Are also necessary to individual influx ease Ami party Triumph. As a specimen of the a Sall Beer which is now u working a among some of our co temporaries we copy the follow tog from a Long rigmarole on a a democracy a i the last Muscatine enquirer a a la the Zaat free Elemual canvass near amp votes a we a Art in Yusra of a or Van Luren. The same elements exist now a then Ami if i ten ton should be the free soil candidate or the anti convention Candi Date we have More to fear now than then. We shall have to contend against a deep rooted respect or hts past services in the breasts of democrats we a Hall Bare to of intend against the sympathy which a port a of the Deon ratio presses of toe state have Oamer Itealy excited in his behalf and against the is Lex i mkt Ion a asm Morni Kliors Rei Rosenta via a a 111� by try he Rustos six trial paper a Bubba sic in the it Kumh of bests a a a a tacit 1� Iowa Asit worked est re me ally with Rex Aasu Towb karst or a exr coir a against the Man sir. Of the Deb a ratio Baurr a hot old bests a res As a Ixia next it ext. Free a Mil candidate in it Quot pretty Strong terms these to proceed from m weak a stomach we have no knowledge Arhat Ever of the political antecedents of or. La cos sit. But As his name smacks somewhat of the Gumbo portion of Mankind we should not he surprised to learn that he had been seduced into the meretricious embraces of a of turn during the palmy Days of Shad Penn and the Dia per doer Claib Jackson of Missouri. But whether this be so or not is of trifling moment the Young Man is at this present writing editor of the democratic enquirer at Muscatine in the state of Iowa and in that distinguished capacity must we now consider him. We have printed in Small Cam tals that portion of the above which relates particularly to the Telegraph and w hich it is hardly necessary to say to our regular readers is both a false and we have neither assumed nor exercised a a the functions of Benton a Organ a we have simply dealt by him As we have by other eminent statesmen of All parties who have bees assailed without cause and without decency. His Long and dist Ingu sed services and his eminent abilities As displayed in the loftiest efforts of human reasoning form a portion of the history and common glory of the country at do those of or. Clay or. Webster and a Host of others and which As an citizen and the conductor of an Independent journal we Felt it both our privilege and our duty to Rescue As far is our Humble efforts would enable us from the slanders of an unscrupulous press and the vituperative assaults of unprincipled politicians. That he May have erred we do not deny that he May Haw faults we freely admit he must be More than Man or less than Man who is free from them but that he has some Virtues some abilities and has a a done the state Jome service a we think no one will gainsay. This is about the sum and substance of All that we t have said at any time in regard to col. Benton. We would say the same to Morrow of any of the eminent statesmen of the Day. And yet or this the Sapient and very democratic editor of the enquirer would hold us to serious account before the tribunal of party a with reference to those a a democratic presses of the state a which have had the magnanimity and Independence to do Justice to an old and Gallant and efficient Leader of their party we would simply remark that we doubt not they will be found to it assess both manliness and ability sufficient to defend themselves against these senseless and ill natured aspersions. The enquirer might have seen with half an Eye that should an emergency require it there Are enough presses in the state already in the Field of politics and in the Confidence of their party to a exercise the functions of Benton organs without seeking in an unjustifiable manner As it has done to involve a a the Neutral press of Burlington in the quarrels of politicians. How far we Mav have a a worked energetically with the abolition paper of Henry county a for aay purpose under the Sun we shall leave to professor Long eels to answer. The editor of the enquirer must have read our paper upside Down Oris very indifferent As to his character for veracity. Tins Long winded Leader of the enquirer is evidently intended As an Appeal to All the anti Naori Demix rats in the state to take up arms Gaia to a the balance of Mankind a a kind of Wake snakes and come to judgment a sum a wins. In this Point of View we have nothing Hgt say about in party Tocsin May ring around a still they split the very ballot Box and yet a either alas i a a us our Sanctum nor divert our a male paper from its purpose. If in its As a a a upon col. Benton the enquirer shall u a iffy Rule task to a a contend against a deep rooted respect for his past services in the breast 9f demo rits a it will be to Alt right and right hearted persons a Gratifying proof that the instincts of Honor and of com a on gratitude Are still Strong enough to contend for a time at least against personal abuse and party prejudice. In conclusion we would barely remark that the enquirer will probably soon realize the feet that its criticisms have been premature and its Dragoo Ning quite unfortunate for its purpose. We suppose we May be allowed to May without comp omitting our neutrality that col. Benton it not yet a candidate nor is it known that he a ver will be hence a Good Deal of powder has been thrown away a without sufficient All men have an undoubted right to their preferences j and those w to Are worthy of respect themselves and cherish a real respect for their own principles will not deny or seek to abridge this privilege. As a matter of policy the enquiry a is afto at fault. A Long shrill blast from the by a us a Bugle might produce a Tea interment in this hut q a Inch that paper Little dreams in la Wisdom of its philosophy. We state these feet As contingencies which the enquirer be of go political paper should have had the Bagaci to to consider in Advance of its attacks. Edi Oriel or we shall wish to be As a mute As a a a use about these matters. Privately ail we a this Side of the River styx i to be allowed a a be Bumble privilege of voting our favorite sen a a Comox sense. An intelligent c or respond ent who signs himself a common sense a has something to say a a on the other Side a relative to fire engines is. The Public have spoken through the medium of a town meeting a common sense May be safely heard through the medium of the press. He reasoning is doubtless satisfactory to himself and May be so to others but for All that we believe a very Large majority will vote in favor of a a the we think it would be a very difficult matter for two or three Hundred persons to find accommodations on two or three flights of narrow stairs and thus by Means of buckets extinguish fire in a third or Story. Again it occurs to us that water can be applied As readily by Means of an engine As by buckets and certainly with More constancy and effect and that an engine can be brought into play in As Short a space of time As is usually required to form a line of buckets. If engines Are not preferable to any other Means hitherto used for extinguishing fires the larger cities Are Cert airily slow to find out their error and an argument against their introduction among us therefore seems to us an argument against All experience. To say that they would bring with them increased danger by Breeding fires argues on the part of our correspondent a very desperate belief in the a a depravity of human by a parity of reasoning the writer might also object to the growth of our population upon the ground that All Large cities Are infested More or less with robbers and bad characters generally and it would therefore be most Wise for All towns to continue in their primitive state of Small potato Riveness. In conclusion we would simply remark that if fire companies and fire engines have been found useful and effective elsewhere we see no reason Why they May not be made equally so in this City. The City debt. In our last we stated that with the proceeds of the sales of the lots and the Revenue on hand the City would be enabled to liquidate the old Bonds and redeem All outstanding we should have added after a Revenue on hand a and Dot and to be collected.

Our Friend of the Gazette will please a suppress any indignation which such a a Dis livery a would naturally excite a it appears for Tom a statement published in the late Island papers that or. Janes the re gently elected v. 8. Senator from that state u a whig having voted for Lien. Harrison in 1840, and for or. Clan in 1844, and prevented by Abeene ally from voting for Jen. Tailor in 1848. He also Lien. Attn out the present whig governor of Rhode Island and is said to be in favor of a to notification of the Tariff and other whig measures. Thi would see in to show that our democratic friends were a Little premature in claiming i elect Ion a a Triumph for to Cir Hall Raad meeting at Maama ath. A meeting of the friends of the Burlington and Peoria rail Road is advertised to take place at Monmouth on the 27th inst. The notice we apprehend is too Short to warrant As Large an attendance a could be desired. Many of our citizens would be glad to be present but the condition of the roads and the Short time left them to make the necessary arrangements will probably prevent a representation from this Side of the River. E3 we Are requested to say that a meeting of the voters of the first Ward will be held at the German methodist Church this evening for the purpose of nominating candidates for aldermen. A general attendance is desired. To if the Reader would enjoy a Rich treat let him peruse the candidates column. And there Are one or two wards a still to be heard from a senator . G. W. Jones u. S. Senate will please recept our thanks for valuable Public documents. The Tail a Sale the weal waking up we would Call the attention of our citizens to the articles published in to Days paper from the Fairfield ledge. And the Ottumwa courier. The spirit and Tenor of these articles May be regarded As expressing the Public sentiment of their respective neighbourhoods. The people of the Interior Are evidently waking up to the Necessia of providing for an Early connection with this City by Means of Plank roads and we doubt not that prompt and energetic Steps will be taken by them with a View to this result. We have certainly offered them fairly by meeting them half Way and the prospects which we Are now holding out to them by the construction of a rail Road eastward cannot fail to induce them to the earliest and most effectual action. The advantages proposed Are too Clear to the most common observer not to be fully appreciated by All who Are in Anywise interested. We Are rejoiced to see them up and doing and Hope they will lose no time in completing their arrangements. Where so Rueh is at stake they will hardly sleep upon their interests or relax in their efforts until their great purpose shall have been accomplished. Success to them. Burlington will do her share if not something More. Set that Down As certain. Alton Tri weekly Telegraph. We have received the first number of the Alton Tri weekly Telegraph published by messes. J. Bailhache a. Son. It is about the size of our own Tri weekly and bears a striking resemblance to it in general appearance. It is a political paper whig but conducted with that dignity fairness and decorum for which judge Bailhache has been justly distinguished throughout his Long and useful career As an editor. We Are glad to see this evidence of increased Prosperity on the part of our tire Bondred Friend and Trust that the City of Alton wih appreciate the great importance to its own interests of sustaining liberally this new Enterprise. The Good name of every town and City abroad to say nothing of the immediate Home advantages depends materially upon the appearance and character of its Public journals. We wish our friends the Best Success and shall be Happy of the Exchange which they have so kindly proffered. Waking up. Our citizens As Well As the people All along the line of the Peoria and Oquawka rail Road Are beginning to Wake up to the importance of taking some action upon the subject immediately. A rail Road meeting has been called to take place on thursday the 27th inst. At this place. We Hope there will he a general attendance from other towns As Well As from our own town and county. Let the subject be agitated and let the work be commenced so As to Complete the Road As soon As possible. The citizens of Burlington Iowa Are taking hold of the matter in Good Earnest As will he seen by extracts made in to Days paper and if our people wish the Road to be built they must turn out and take part in the matter. It will require Unity of sentiment and Unity of action along pull and a Strong pull. There is no longer a doubt that Illinois is to be redeemed from the heavy burdens that have borne her Down and it our citizens would share in the honors of that redemption and become recipient of her Rise to Prosi Erity and greatness they must put their hands to the work and Aid in carrying it Forward. Rail Road meeting. The citizens of Peoria Fulton Knox Warren and Henderson counties in the state of Illinois and the citizens of Burlington Iowa Are requested to meet at Monmouth on thursday the 27th inst., to take into consideration the subject of the amended charter of the Peoria and Oquawka rail Road and to adopt the most efficient Means for prosecuting the construction of said Road at an Early Day. We Hope to see a full delegation from the above name Points. Feb. Is 1851. A gentleman in one of the we Estern states became the proprietor of an inflatable cd Ping. Wishing to make an Experiment he inverted a hog head Over it and when the Gas had accumulated sufficiently seated himself upon it and Boring a Gimlet Hole through the top Philosof i Mically applied fire to the Hole. The next that was seen of him he was kicking a pair of red ton boots out of an adjoining canal into which for Ike Telegraph. A word or the other Side. As your paper has repeatedly urged up a our City authorities to a a protect a this is the phrase universally used in connection with the subject our town from fire by the Purchase of a fire engine Ami As the Council in conformity with the instructions of the fire meeting have ordered a vote to be taken of the first monday of next March for or against a special tax of 12 1-2 Eta. On the Hundred dollars to be expended in the Purchase of this Long talked of machine it May probably be As Well for Thow who must now upon this question to look and see what they Are called upon to do. It has been so unanimously urged that a fire engine would entirely protect our town from fires that few have stopped to argue the i int. Would it As a preventive of fire f if so Bur it by All Means. But sensible men in tact ail men will doubt this. In what Way then can a fire engine Benefit us How Many engines would be needed to Send water for instance to the Barret House in a town where the absence of water works compels us to look to the River As our Only source of Supply ? not less than one thousand feet of Hose would be of any account whatever in such a Case. What would this Hose Cost ? what would one or two engines Cost too ? and How far would this tax go towards effecting its object and How Many years must we Rote it to establish a Complete fire apparatus on the scale proposed ? the special tax would produce if All paid punctually and it never is 71.3181 of Revenue. Would this buy a solitary engine let alone Hose ac.? it is universally conceded that no men work harder than our citizens when the dreadful cry of fire sound through our streets. Conscious of our unprotected situation each Man leaps to his feet seizes a bucket and rushes to the scene of action a if it were his own property endangered. There a line of buckets throwing water exactly upon the spot is soon established and with considerable hard work in every instance As yet the destroying element has been subdued. How would it be with a fire engine even presuming we had Means to buy one each Man would run to the engine House instead of the fire and curiosity would prompt every Man to watch the great Panacea put into operation instead of going to work himself by the time the Leaky rickety affair got to going squirting water at every joint and rivet the fire Wilt have male such Progress that instead of one building being destroyed As at present half a dozen will have been consumed. To have a fire engine you must have Hose have a lot purchased and a House built to keep it in and go to Many expenses not at present contemplated. It will be a plaything for a few months or perhaps a year and after that As we scarcely average a fire a year unless indeed they multiply As they do in some cities. That firemen May display their prowess it will be Laid aside to be found utterly useless the very Tipsie it is Molt to wanted. A fire engine in a town the size of ours is worse than none it is a positive nuisance and a continual source of expense. While it is a Benefit to nobody whatever. But perhaps Many will ask who have not looked at the subject from this Point of View How is it that they prove so beneficial in other cities nay so vitally necessary ? this question is easily answered by saying that in a Large City where water works and plugs furnish an abundant Supply of water at every Street Corner they Are useful. They Are beside great labor savers and if a fire occurred among us once a month even our population might find themselves unequal to the severe work of contending with the destructive element. Fortunately hitherto we have been spared very frequent visitations of this dreaded enemy and when he has come we have taken hold of him in Good Earnest. The writer does hot pretend to be any Wiser than the balance of his fellow citizens. But though As largely interested As most people in providing against the destruction of property by fire unless some new Light is thrown upon the question than that at present before the people he will be forced to vote against the proposition to get a fire engine by taxing the people honestly believing it will not Only tax the Public for nothing hut actually leave us More liable to have our town burned up by fire than in our present situation without any. Common sense. Letter from the Hon. Henry Clay to the Union meeting at Tarrytown n. Y., january 30th. Washington Jan. 20, 1851. Gentlemen i have received your letter inviting my attendance at a meeting of the people of Westchester county on the 30th inst., who Are to assemble without respect to party to express their determination to abide by the compromises of the last session of Congress and to Manifest their Devotion to the Constitution and the Union of the United states which it formed. I rejoice in the assemblage of All such meetings of the people. They have done and will continue to do great Good. Whenever they meet i heart in spirit and in soul i am with them and of them. And if it were practicable i would be a personally present and participate in them. Two classes of Disu Monist threaten our country. One is that which is open and undisguised in favor of separation. The other is that which disowning a desire of dissolution of the Union adopts a course and contends for measures and principles which must inevitably Lead to that calamitous result. Of the two i think the latter the More dangerous because it it deceptive and insidious. I Hope both will be Defeated. They will he Defeated if the mass of the people True to their Best interests and to their country will discount Nance and frown Down All attempts at alienation and discord. I regret gentlemen that my duties Here do not admit of my accenting the invitation w Ith which you have honoured me. With great respect i am your Obj to serve to h. Clay.

The City of Burlington is wide awake to her True interests stretching out her arms in All directions to secure the patronage Ami Trade of the surrounding country on both sides of the Mississippi. That the great Central rail rond in Illinois will be completed in a few years seems to be placed a doubt. Are it is almost certain that the Peoria and Burlington Road will be in operation As soon. This will connect the latter place the year round with the South Ami East. At the same tune she is not indifferent or mile in Laving out trains to catch the immense traite of Southern and Middle Iowa. Her City Council have decided upon taking a vote at the april election for and against making a loan of $15881 Kmla a of it to be invested in a Plank Road leading into the hark country Ami $5j88 to assist in building Bridges across Skunk River at Lowell and Rome the latter is directly on the Road from burling ton to this place and the Burlington papers say it is intended to have the Plank Road up thus was Cross on it. The Council Haie also decided upon taking $75, 810 of the Stock in the Peoria rail Road Ami the Telegraph seems sanguine that the citizens will take at least $225,18x1 More making $3 81. 88 of the Stock that will be taken in Burlington alone the Plank Road from Burlington to it pleasant is built to Middletown and will be completed in a Short time. Thus it will be seen that while Burlington is acting Ami acting promptly and energetically the people of the a a Gate to Iowa with double Tny natural advantage Are to All natural appearance in a Croft Ulm rip Vanwinkle slumber. Thus Keo us. With All her unbounded natural advantage is in imminent danger lest Burlington close the a a Gate a by opening one above her too Large and permanent for her Power to shut. While the Rich unbounded products of Southern Iowa will flow through it and away from the lower a a Many things have conspired to produce this turn in favor of Burlington. The Illinois legislature rising above and repudiating old worn out dogmas opposed to internal improvements special Grants. Ac., and granting Liberal Char ters to several companies to construct rail roads a the two most prominent of which the Central and Peoria and Burlington w ill to of incalculable advantages to the latter place. It is Equa by True that while the Liberal and enlightened legislature of Illinois has helped her the illiberal and narrow spirit manifested by the dominant party in our legislature and by the governor has been of some assistance to her interests. For. As it cripples and keeps Back improvements that would add much to the Prosperity Ami advancement of her rivals it of course gives her some advantage. But let us All. Who wish to see our towns and villages become cities Bear in mind that Burlington has gained her present advantages by the sleepless vigilance untiring persevere Ance liberality and Enterprise of her business men. They have projected grand schemes of improvement which they As Well As others must see if carried out w ill accomplish their grand design Viz make Burlington the Emporium of Southern Iowa Ami they Are not Content with projecting but with an Iron Resolution that will accomplish almost any undertaking they have resolved to Complete them and no doubt will do it. Now we done to wish to see any jealousy Between our two principal cities in this part of the state. We Are satisfied that it is for our interest in the Interior and from one extent of the great Valley or Republic to the other to he in connection by railroads Plank roads River improvement ac., with both of these Young but flourishing cities. We wish to see them both flourish. Hence we Are anxious to hold up the example of Burlington and her future Bright prospects to arouse if possible the citizens of the Tower Date to a sense of the importance of being up and a doing before it is too late for inactivity and neglect to keep up with the lightning Speed of this progressive age is suicidal to the interests of any Community and certain death to the Prosperity Ami growth of any botnet Conner. The Vila i Nous Captain readers Are already informed of the immense forgeries perpetrated by this most unprincipled scoundrel. The last that we heard of him was that be and some of his company who adhere to him turned upon others of them and that a fight ensued in which some were killed and French wounded. One of the members at to above company or. William mile of car Lise Pennsylvania furnishes the san Francisco californian with the following account of their journey to some extent the treatment they received from Captain French Etc tile company was called a the a a Overland express it left new York City As our read lers already know a on the 13th of May last for san Francisco by Way of new Orleans i Lavacca Texas thence to Elpaso by Spring wagons. It seems that French Hall induced some 230 men to pay him $250 a piece contracting to take Thein through in sixty travelling Days. They were four months i reaching Elpaso. Considering that they Hall been completely deceived by French Ami being nearly worn out by fatigue Ami disappointment they resolved to hold a Public meeting and request French to a vend the passengers by pack mules to their Point of destination. While they were consulting upon the subject the news arrived by express from san Antonio that French had use a. Without auth fixity Howland a Aspinwall a names in a letter of unlimited Crew lit without their know Leslie Ami signature. Of course the whole company was thrown into confusion. The in Lea of la eing Aham Lone in a strange land w thou Money or food hav ing paid $250 for a through ticket was not very grateful. Legal measures Hall been taken by French a Crew vitors to seize All the outfit to prevent which these company resolved to place every thing in the hands of officers chosen to receive them Ami to sell Ami distribute the proceed pro rata according to Ltd the claims of the passengers. French while at Lavacca. Had selected thirty men to As jurors for the arbitrage it of differences Ami la or the punishment of crimes Ami offences Hunsell signing else plea age to abide by their decisions. In accordance with such organization the chattels were sold a final settlement made and 20 per cent on All claims was paid Over to the members of the company or passengers. With this amount they had to Purchase their mules provisions ac., and pay whatever necessary expense might me on the journey. French appealed to the american military commander the sheriff the mexican and american consuls to interfere in his behalf and strip his Duj gets of everything. But in vain. Finally a part of the passengers Hadly fitted out left Elpaso on a journey of a Tho Saml or fifteen Hundred Miles for san Diego. Soon after leaving they Learned that French had employed some Twenty men armed to the Teeth for the purpose of robbing them. This he effected the passengers being scattered. Each Man As he came up was comi Namle with a pistol at his breast to give up his weapons Ami then was stripped of whatever he possessr.1�?blankets, clothing mules Money a. Many were thus left entirely a destitute. Finally a Little party 6f half a dozen vermonters who happened to Ltd he together determined to and did resist. A fight was the consequence in which two a or. Wright and or. Nelson were killed or. Cooper had a thigh broken and or. Holmes both army broken. French had his right Arm shattered and was supposed mortally wounded being also wounded in the six be. This occurred at co Rolita in Mexico. When French a shot his Banditt scatter and the rest of the company were allowed to pass on. They suffered terribly by hunger thirst and toil but bore All with fortitude working their Way along with worn Down by lies and swollen feet until they reached the Colorado. There the Ganies of the Houma indians w hich had been deserted by them after their Battle with the California troops furnished the poor worn out travellers Lor a week or ten Days with Beans. After a journey of seven months some ferry reached san Diego thirty five took passage in a Brig for this place and were Twenty one Days in reaching Here having divided out their last provisions and water on Board Ere their . 0.

We were again in the same store and it was the Day before thanksgiving. There were Many present but one came Sloly and sadly in. He was evidently a poor Mam and he whispered anxiously to the store keeper and we caught the word the store keeper Shook his head. The poor Man was turning away when a rough voice saluted him.

Ami 1 will Tell you How i become a Rich Man Ami How by following three Rule you can become As Rich As my sell. A a i first came to Louisiana a c otitis Tineil or. Mcdonough a when it was a Spanish Colony As the agent fora House in Baltimore and a House in Boston to Dispo use of certain cargoes of goods. After 1 had settled up their accounts and finished their Agency i set up to do business for myself. I had become acquainted with the governer who took a fancy Totne. Al Tho i never Lead so much Flattem him and through his influence i obtained a contract for the army by which 1 made $10,000. After this i gave a Sale led dinner to the principal officers of the army and the governor and by it obtained another contract by w hich 1 Ina in fb0,t88. This is what rhe creoles and French Dot not understand. 1 mean the spending of Money judiciously. They Are afraid of spending Money. A Man who wishes to to make a Fortune must first make a show of liberality and spend Money in order to obtain it. By that dinner which i gave to the Spanish authorities i obtained their Gmal Wilt and esteem and by this i was enabled to make a Large sum of Money. To succeed in life then you must obtain the favor an i influence of the opulent and the authorities old the country in which you live. This is the first Rule. A the natural Span of Man s life Obser de or. Mcdonough a is too abort if he is Ahan dunce to his own resources to a Juire great wealth and therefore in or or to realize a Fortune you must excer Cise your influence Ami Power Over those who in Point of wealth Are inferior to you and by availing yourself of their talents knowledge and information turn them to your own advantage. This is the second Here the old Man made a Long pause As if lost in thought and seeing him remain silent i asked a and is this all4 no a Sai l he a there is a third and last Rule which it is All essential Foryt a to observe in order Liat Success May attend your w hat is Liat a i inquired. A Why sir a said he a it is prayer. You must Pray to the almighty Witk Fervour and Zeal and you w ill be sustained in All your desires. I never prayed to god sincerely in All my life without having Iny prayer satisfactorily he stopped and i said a is that All a he answered a yes sir follow my a a Lier and you will become a Rich and i he arose Ami left me. A Well a Askel one of the company a have you follow it 1 his a no a said the counsellor a i have not ice certain reasons i do not wish to lie considered harsh in drawing the conclusions 1 did from or. Mcdonough s advice. They were Liat when a Man desires to be j come Rich he must corrupt the High of Eress the poor and look to god to sustain or rect or a Osto the men do not gorm Andize when they Hare to pay for Trrry article they courier a Les stats Unis relates a characteristic incident show ing that Many of the people of Bari and we May add in ail other places too eat quite differently at the Ordinary balls when every thing is free and at the Charity balls where a Man pays for All he orders. It says 44a provincial gentleman at the late Splender Charity Ball stepped up Early to the supper table and did such Lia voc among the most costly game Ami wines As to require considerable waiting on by the file giants. His appetite at last staggered he loosened a Button or so and prepared to saunter carelessly Tow r 1 the scene of the a Lance. The servant stepped Forward however and handed him a slight memorandum. A what is this for a he asked with an expression of annoyance. A for the Phesant the ofe the Champagne oysters and sweetmeats replied the servant. A enough of your jokes sir a he said pushing the protruding hand from him with its paper. The waiter insisted. A Why what do you mean a exclaimed the is Ranger a i ate and drank three times As much at the president s Ball last night and nothing was charged for that a the Bill was still respectfully presented. A leave me alone a continued the rec usant growing loud Ami Wrath a you think to Humbug Ine because i am from the country but no you done to i have paid for my ticket and from that Price i exp Wrt my share of All the agreeableness of the Hall a several persons Luul by this time gathered around and it was variously explained to the Novice that the Money must travel from the neighbourhood of what he had eaten to that out held Palm of the servant. He refused per tenaciously still and it was not till a police a persuasion was added to the other arguments that the Little account was adjusted. It seems certain Liat people rat very differently where Bev pay or done to pay. _ Why the Westing Flower Flower thus complains of her extreme sensitiveness a i have no command whatever Over my tears. When at the theatre or a concert 1 am thoroughly ashamed of myself especially if there Are any Young gentlemen of our party. If 1 hear a pretty song or read a pathetic tale it makes me cry like a child. When i see a Beautiful picture the effect it the same and if 1 am called upon to sing a pretty or melancholy song i am obliged to cease before 1 have half finished. What seems to me so very strange is that i have what people generally Call a remarkable flow of spirits no one could enjoy a Good Roins better than i do and i h. Be scarcely been ill a week in All my a a there is no occasion to be ashamed of sensitiveness but it is the fault of the present age to affect a sort of insensibility of superiority to the very finest feelings of humanity. It is a preface age. Men and women Are ashamed of Devotion ashamed of wonder Surprise astonishment excitement or deep feeling. They Pride themselves even in Muni As if it showed their Tumperi Wity to the world around them that they had a used up All to e pop Ess ional treasure of humanity.
