Of Little souls is pure and Wilto and Chrystaline As rays of Litcht direct from heaven their source divine refracted through the Mist of years How reel my setting Sun appears How Strid looks this soul of mine labor nud franchise. Seim Tor Alorton disposes of tic 3th and sixth resolutions in the democratic platform in his in Ilmington speech As follows Tho fifth Resolution begins by resolving democratic party of he United always been pc Niin cantly Yin Day to the rights and intei1osts of Tho laboring1 Curti Finly this must be so. Tins not Tho democratic party for forty years Boon Tho advocate and of Iii Man by mid docs it not stand m Tho Only Mourner by its grave and Ems not tie institution of slavery been the great enemy of free labor demoralizing Disho Noring and almost destroying it in the states where it existed and in fact impairing its character and credit throughout the whole country his therefore eminently proper that the democratic party should now resolve that it has always been the Champion of the Labouring and therefore entitled to Etc Rual gratitude. This Resolution then resolves the democratic party is in favor of it limited number of hours of labor in All government workshops hours dictated by Tho physical Ami mental Well being of in p labourers. What number of hours it is in favor of whether ten twelve or fifteen the Resolution does not condescend to inform us but i will assume for the Sake of the argument that it refers to the eight hour system and it so happens that eight hours were fixed As n Day s work in All government workshops by n Republican Congress More than a year ago and the Only curious thing about it is that democratic politicians have been Able to find it out so soon. The Resolution then resolves that it is in favor of Liberal Grants of land from the Public Domain to actual settlers without Cost. And it so hip pcs that 11 Republican Congress some years ago passed jaws donating the Public lands to actual settlers and that the democratic party throughout the Long years in which it had a majority in both branches to Congress never passed or proposed to pass any such is but it attempts to make amends for this failure some years after the thing has been done by the Republican party by coming Forward Aud resolving loudly and patriotically in its favor. The truth is this whole Resolution a a bold and flagrant attempt to capture Republican property and is Only relieved from the charge of larceny by the fact that the whole no. 692 ratify the amendment As All parties in these states have declared themselves in its favor and the Law of Congress will require it As n condition precedent to their restoration to representation in Congress and enough other states tray be surely counted upon with those that have already acted to make the requisite three fourths. Indiana has ratified the amendment notwithstanding the desperate and revolutionary measures resorted to by the democratic party of that state to defeat its action. Twice the democratic members of the Senate and of representatives in the Indiana legislature resigned their seats for the purpose of breaking a quorum relying upon a strained and forced construction of the Constitution of the state the same which the rebels sought to give to the Constitution of the United states when they claimed that Congress was destroyed in 1861, by the secession of the senators and representatives from Southern states. But the sound judicial mind of the country and Tho common sense of the people repudiated the construction alike in each Case and rejected any interpretation of the Constitution which would enable a factious minority to destroy the legislature or Congress. But the example of resignation set by the democratic members of the Indiana legislature i commend most heartily to the democratic members of the Ohio state legislature and in fact to democratic of Licals everywhere throughout Tho land.

An Kaffl nver by fire at mtr Tiloi correspondent grud Balds Michigan Kagle to make Ilan intelligible n Tor to the Reader let me say that Buffalo Corry and Pittsburgh Road intersects the Lake Shore Road at this place.

Now let it be understood that from this Point to Hay i lie at the head of Chautauqua Lake a distance Only about ten Miles a train is carried Over an olo Talion of Hundred feet. From the station to the Summit the Grade is about eighty feet to the mile with curves which increase the distance by four mites. It is Over this Road that the in Melee quantities of Petroleum Are brought.

The Devil As a Yankee a correspond ont of the Boston traveler writing from Bull Hun tails the following a Story is told about a Soldier who ran away from Hull run if to re Mcmoor rightly Ilia re were several who did ill who became so exhausted when lie reached Fairfax court House that he into i lie Hatchway of n cellar and lipid Down behind a pile of cabbages which had been pulled to hide them from the army. Soon after the occupant of the House closed the Hatchway Aud left the Soldier in Solitude and darkness to sleep away his fatigue.

Here by some cause As yet unexplained one of the Oil tanks took fire. The passenger cars were at once detached and he brakes stopped them. Next the Oil cars were Cut off.

Bennington Are receiving a Large Stock of groceries and provisions canned fruit oysters parties could not carry Avray the goods and the publicity of Hie attempt would seem to take Newny Tho animus fur anti and reduce the off use to a Mere trespass. Melancholy must be the condition of a party when it in reduced to such Straits for the manufacture of a Little capital before an election. The sixth Resolution declares that it is the right of each state to decide for itself who shall possess the elective franchise and that Tho attempt to regulate suffrage in Ohio by Means of the so called fifteenth constitutional amendment a subversive of Tho principles of the Federal Constin tin. The most noticeable thing about this Resolution a that it makes no Issue against coloured suffrage in gives no intimation that coloured suffrage a wrong or improper but object Only to the Means by which it is to to brought about insisting that suffrage should be regulated by an amendment of tie Constitution of the state and not by amendment of he Constitution of Tho United states As it a proposed in Tho fifteenth amendment. In n democratic convention in Ohio two years ago it was resolved that negro suffrage in itself was wrong and would to highly prejudicial to the Best interests of the state. But that opinion seems to have been reconsidered and the Only objection now is taken to the Means by it is to be brought about. This reconsideration is doubtless owing to the conviction in the minds of the members of the late convention that the fifteenth amendment would be ratified. And impartial suffrage established and it was therefore important to put Tho democratic party into a position in which they could Point to the platform and assure the voters that they did not object to negro suffrage in itself but Only to the Mode in which is was brought about and thus Lay a foundation for soliciting the coloured vote. The Constitution of the United states provides tha Tauy proposition presented to the states by majority of two thirds of each House of Congress and ratified by the Lugi Lathat the pursuing rebels had quartered themselves in the House and that he would be captured. But to wits not a Little surprised to see the trip door lifted which opened into the cellar through the floor of the House and by which was let in u Stream of Light. The door was raised Only about an Yueh from lie floor when some person darkened Tho Crevice and Tho cracked voice of an old lady fairly shrieked Ift Arf no sooner was the question asked than the trap. Door was shut with a Bali or rendering it utterly impossible for the Soldier to reply and be heard. After a great shuttling of net Aud the slamming of doors the door was again slightly raised and this time a rough hoarse voice which As the Soldier afterwards said sounded like a trombone in an empty molasses Hogshead growled through the crack Down the Soldier by this time aware that his presence was creating no Little excitement shouted in to sepulchral tone Down went Tho door with another bang followed by indistinct shouts and the Jar of Many feet. It was a Long time before the door was raised again and meantime the Soldier tried the Hatchway but found that it was fastened on the outside. Seeing that he must make his Way out of thu trap door he was about asking them to let him out when the door was slightly lifted and a Bird voice trembling with excitement shouted into the cellar enveloped in they not Only pursued but overtook him striking tale Box car with inconceivable Force knocking the horses Ami men Flat upon the floor and yet almost miraculously not throwing the engine from the track. It was now with he Engineer a race for life and he gave the engine every ounce of steam. Looking South from the place of my residence at that terrible juncture one of the most cent spec Ucles was witnessed that a Man sees in a life time. A Sheet of intensely Bright flames Siviy feet High was seen coming Down tilt Southern slope apparently with the Speed of a meteor and really very nearly the Speed of a Hurricane eighty mile s an for pursued and pursuer flew Over the course or rather Down it and around Tho curves at the rate of More than seventy Miick an hour As the Engineer declares and As everybody can believe who witnessed the spectacle. The whole heavens were illuminated and the lands ate was lit up As by the Noonday Light. Onward and downward hew the engine and behind it Fluva and thundered flip huge fiery Demon. Twice its prodigious weight was driven against the fugitive As if instinct with a purpose to drive it from the track. It seemed As if to the heroic Engineer and fireman there was a perfect environment of peril. The Speed of the Naino was such that it ceased to pump Ihnn again the Cincinnati express was due at the Junction at this time. 1 Engineer of the Oil train whistled Aud shaking hands with me fireman they bade each other Farewell knowing that their lives depended on the opening of the Lake Shore switch by Ihetu friends below and this was to imperil the express train coming Down from the West with its living human freight. The Engineer in this train saw the fire when it first broke out at the Summit and supposing he could Clear the Junction before the flaming terror reached it he too put his engine to the utmost Speed on a level Grade. A mite Short of the Junction he saw that thai Elf Ort was a vain Ono for the flying Flag nation had rushed out i Lake Shore track and was Rui an enormous Snake attacks a child. Auer. 7.j feet or. U.
