One of those pathetic tragedies that
touch the human mind deeper than the
most vivid pictures drawn by the pens
of skillful noveleáis, has just culminated
in Ohio. About fifteen years ago tl ere
appeared at a Shaker settlement, in that
State a young mother with an infant
daughter in her arms. The mother had
been deserted by one of those cold
blooded villains who throw aside a Wo.
man's priceless love as the plaything of
a day. The Shakers adopted the mother
and child. The mother and daughter
passed ac uneventful life in their qujet.
Quaker home until a few mouths ago,
when the daughter, budding into wo-
manhood, developed a buoyancy of
spirits that disturbed tho calm Shakers j
and caused, a spirit of uneasiness in the
circles. This feeling grew, and the
young Shakeres-s evinced a determina-
tion to shun the society of the elder
members and seek the, company of
younger and more agreeable compan-
ions. The elders informed the mother
that she must send her daughter into
the world. This the mother refused to
do. They were then turned adrift, with
a few dollars in their pockets. After
vainly looking for situations where they
could live togbtlier, mother and daughter
engaged a room in a hotel, where they
partook of a deadly drug, and both
perinhed.—Ncio York Sun.-

What tlie Inildcl Would do.
Col. Robert Ingersdil delivered a lec-
ture in Chicago last week, tho aim of
which was to give vent to his deeply
rooted infidelity. It has always, been a
mystery to us that those who believe
that death is the everlasting sur.f.et. of
life should spend so much of what lit'1*1
time they have in the unpleasant. ttsk
of __ attempting to establish their Htiil
more unpleasant belief. What is to be
gained by it ? Will the rrorld be mad?
happier or better by convincing it that
life reaches only from the cradle to the
grave ? Will the heart throb more
bouyantly.or weep cooler tears because
it believes it is beating i's way toward
an endless midnight ? Will our young
men and young women develop into
greater usefulness with Mr. Ingersoll's
principle imbedded in their souls, than
they will with the belief that, "It is not
all of life to live, nor all of death to
die?" Reason prompts a negative
answer to each of these questions. If
the infidel were right in^his views he
would be a cruel monsterfto r-o into the

Mobile, May 2—Col. Forsythe, th#
well known and distinguished editor of
the Mobile Register, died to-day, aged
GC>. Col. Forsythe was the leading
Democrrtie editor of the South, and was
Minister to Mexico under Buchanan.
He was a native of Georgia.
The Mexia Ledger urges more atten-
tentioQ to fruit culture, and says:
Texas is emphatically the home of the
grape, fig, peach, pear and melon, and
the finest apples we ever saw were
grown in Texas. The advantages of
fruit growing in Texas are so great that
it seems to us many scientific promolo-
gists would engage in the business at
once. Aside from the splendid yield of
the various crops of fruit, tho time of
getting it to market would be a grand
advantage which few other American
countries possess. Peaches, pears, figs,
grapes and meilono from Texas can be
put int > the Northern and Western
markets long enough in advance of tho
products of these sections, to enable the
vendors to dispose of the entire crop
before coming in competition with them.

throng of buoyant youth, or along the
wavering lines of decriped, suffering
age, and hold up the cold, cheerless
grave as the end of youthful mirth, and
the anticipations of hopeful age. What
would he present to tal;c piece of the
bele;/ in immortality' With what
would he brighten the iiours now radi-
ant with the hope of heüven ? Nothing-;
absolutely nothing. Tk infidel comes
with a starless night, and tells us that
there will never be a morning ; he comes
with a death's head and seis it tiprm our
hopes ; he rairies with him an open
casket and bids us toil, and sutler, and
weep, and live to reach it and it only.
The man who preaches sncli a doct rine,
and believes it, and lives on amidst the
strifes, and turmoils, '¡and tears, and
heartaches of life, iuMgi of ¡Hitting a
pistol to his head and blowing out his
brains, is the veriest toward that ever
disgraced his kind. If the belief in a
future life is a delusio , it is too happy
a ono to be dispelled, unless something
is to be gained by it. ^It is the shield
with which we go forth to fight the
hard and discouragingjjattlc of life ; it
is the stimulant which nerves us to
rise from defeat In onr daily conflicts
with sorrow, and poverty, and pain, and
bereavement, and enables us to sing
while the hearli aches and the tears flow.
Dispel it, and you blot out the sun, and
every twinkling star that glows to light
the night ; weaken it, and the green
grasses fade and the charming roses
lose their blush of health and die ; -blot
it out, and you leave man to curse the
world, himself, and her who bore him.
But it is r.o delusion. Young man
and young woman, as you value happi-
nesss, never permit the sophistries of
infidelity to cloud your belief in immor-
tality. From almost the begining until
now, a mighty ocean of lif« has been
pouring out of tnis world with the belief
that it would flow on down ages, and
ages, and ages, and grow brighter and
stronger, and lovelier as the eternal
moments flew. Our mothers, and
comrades have gone out of the world
with this belief, laughing at death, and
mocking the frowning tomb. Warriors,
and statesmen, and orators, and philoso-
phers, the brightest minds that ever
lived, the best thinker,? that ever
thought, are living beyond the grave
to-day, or else with all their power of
intellect and deep research they have
found what liobert Ingersoll, who is |
inferior in ev.-ry respect to millions and j
millions of them, professes to have :
found. Without entering upon" the j
discussion of the question, permit us to ;
direct the youthful mind, which mav '
ever be shaken by doubts, to the fact
that the belief in immortality is almost
universal, and that the greatest .minds
that have ever illumined the earth, be
lieved, after careful investigation, that
the doctrine was true.

KEEP STRAIGHT AHEAD.
Pay no attention to slanderers or
gossip mongers. Keep straight in
your course, and let their back-
hit, in£8 die the death of neglect.
What is the use of lying awake at
night, brooding over the remark of
some false friend, that runs through
your brain like forked lightning ?
What's the use of fretting over a
piece of gossip that has been set
ailoat to your disadvantage by some
meddlesonte busybody wdio has
more time than character ? These
things can't possibly injure you,
unless, indeed, you take notice of
them, and in combatting them give
them character and standing. If
what is said about you is true set
yourself right at once; if it is
false let it go for what it will fetch.
If a bee stings you would you go
to the hive and destroy it ? Would
not a thousand come upon yon?
It is wisdom to say little respecting
the injuries you have received. We
are gen ¿rally losers in the end if
we stop to refute all backbiting and
gossipping we may hear by the
way. They are annoying it is true,
but not dangerous, so long as we
do not stop to expostulate and
scold. Our characters are formed
and sustained by ourselves, and by
our own actions and purposes, and
not, by others. Let us always bear
in mind that u calumniators may

TKRMS 15V " IIOXEcT" BEX.
Nrw York, April 24.—The
Times furnishes the following let-
ter, written by ex-Senator Benja-
min F. Wad", of Ohio, in condem-
nation of President IIay *e' South-
ern policy, and which is now pub-
lished for the first time:
Jiu-fkksox, Ohio, April 9.
To Mr. W. II. .iPdlnter, Washington,
My Dear Sir—Your letter of
the fifth was duly received. You
ask if I remember what I 8aid in
favor of President Hayes in my
endeavor to procure his nomina-
tion at the Cincinnati Convention.
I do renumber it, after what has
:~>np, Ucinspir^d, with indignation
tin. ' of soul that I
and a b, "^u know with
never felt before. foi
what untiring zeal I labOi .
'the emancipation of the slaves of
the South, and to procure justice
for them before and during tho
time I was in Congress, and I sup-
posed Governor llaves was in' full
accord with me on this subject;
but I have been deceived, betrayed,
and even humiliated by the course
he has taken, to a degree that I
have not language to express.
During the first month of his
administration we. find him clos-
e'ed - with two of the worst and
most malignant enemies of thai
colored race that can be found int
all that slave-cursed region, and
there consulting with those malé-
íactors how best he can pnt these
colored people under the iron heel
are fences neglected, buílctrJTg - ,
dilapidated, farming implements reduce them to a condition in-
- - - - finitely worse than before they
were made free. I feel that to have'
emancipated these people and then
to leave them unprotected to be a
crime as infamous as to have re-
duced them to slaver^ when they
were free, and for Hayes to do this
to the men who had, at the hszard
of their lives, given him the vc'**8
without which he never could bave
had the power to do this terrible
injustice. ÜVio doubt he meditates
the destruction of the party which
elecfed him. A contemplation of
all this fills me with amazement
and inexpressible indignation. My
only consolation is that history
informs me that better tnen than I
ever pretended to be have, in alike
manner, been deceived. Some have
attempted trfexense him by saying
that he means well, but hell is
paved with just such good- inten-
tions. Yours truly,
B. F. WADE.
left exposed to the weather, and
stock unsheltered and uncared for,
but everything denotes thrift and
enterprise. It is really painful to
go about the country and observe
the number of neglected farms.
Pigs, geese, ducks and cattle are
allowed almost unlimited range.
Weeds render the door yard, the
orchard, the meadows, even, un-
sightly- The good wife, in addi-
tion to her household cares, must
milk the cows, feed the pigs, and
do the chores generally. But
where is the owner ? Where ana
how does he spend his tune? He
is across the way hanging on his
neighbor's fence, talking politics,
or he is in the nearest store or
blacksmith shop, talking gossip.
Perhaps he is inspired by a desire
to make some money, and is out
"huckstering," or what is less
laudable, selling a "patent right,"
that may be useful or not, just as
it happens. But while he is earn-
ing a few dollars away from home
many dollars are being lost at
home, because it is time to do
spring planting, summer harvest-
ing or fall sowing. Thus the years
are passed; and sympathizing ones
remark : "He is a clever man, but
somehow don't get along in the
world.'' And all because he owns
a farm, has a business, and yet
fails to attend to it.
JUDGE JIARSH.tLL AND THE
Chief Justice Marshall was a
great man ; but great men are not
apt to be proud. He was not too
proud to wait on himself, líe was
in thQ habit of going to market
himself, and carrying home his
purchases. Often would he be seen
going home at sunrise, with poul-
try in one hand and vegetables in
On one of these occasions a
fashionable young man from the
North, who had removed to Rich-
mond, was swearing violently be-
cause he could find no man to
carry -home his turkey. Judge
Marshall stepped up and asked
where he lived. When he heard lie
"That is my way; I will take
your turkey home for you."
When they came to the house
the young man asked: " What
shall I pay you ? "
" Oh, nothing," said the Judge,
"you are welcome; it was all in
my way, and it was no trouble to

Only let a woman be sure Bhe is
precious to her husband—dot use-
ful, merely, not valuable, not con-
venient simply, but lovely and be-
loved; lit her be the recipient of
his polite and hearty attention, let
her feel that she has the sincere re-

care and love are noticed, appre-

and her judgment respected in
matters of which she is cognizant—

sheltered therein, adversity will
have lost its sting. She may suffer,
but sympathy will dull the edge of
sorrow. A house with love in it—
and by love I.mean love expressed
in words and looks and deeds, for I
have not one spark of faith in love
that never crops out—is to a house
without love as a person to a ma-

chanism. The unloved womau
may have bread just as light, house
j istas tidy, a dress just, as neat, as

of beauty about her, a ioyousness,
