Belle Alden's Travelling-Bag. ? train boned for St. Louis had just left the depot of Bellefontaine, when a gentknian entered the smoking ear and laid his hand upon the shoulder of his travelling companion-a tall, handsome man of thirty, who sat musingly blow? ing rings of smoke into thc air. "Marcy," said the new comer, "if you want to see ai once the sweetest and saddest sight yon ever beheld, go into the last car but one on the train. There's an emigrant German woman, with four little children, and during the afternoon the youngest-a baby-has died. The uio-.ber and the other chil? dren are inconsolable." "lean under*tand,'' interrupted the smoker, "thc sadness ot such a scene, but where is thc swectuess you spoke ot?" "I'm coming to that. The whole party h?ve been taken in charge of by a young lady.

[Prom ta? Unionvilla Times.] ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF THE; CN ION HORROR. On Sunday nigbt, aboat 12 o'clock, a large Dumber of mounted men, estim?t ? ed at from 500 to 700, in black gowns, with masks fitting tight to their faces, rode suddenly into town, placed a strong picket goard at each road entrance, and ordered every light to be put out. It ?was a very dark and rainy night, pecu liarly suited to the dark deeds to be en? acted." These men rode to the jail, broke through the outer door, and suddenly presented themselves before the jailor, Mr. H. T. Hughes, and his family, a?d Mr. L. B. Hill, deputy sheriff, who were all asleep, and demanded the keys to the cells. This was refused, and resist? ance made by the ofiicers, which so ex? asperated toe Ku-KIux that they violent!, threw down the ofiicers and tied them together toa rock post in front of the jail.

ADV EH IlSIftG APHOBI8.T1S. Judicious advertising always pays. If you have a good thing, advertise it. If you havn't, don't. If you don't mean to mind your own business, it will not pay to advertise. Never run dowu your opponents' goods in public. Let bim do his own advertising. It's as true of advertising as of any? thing iu this world-if it is worth do? ing at all, it is worth doing well. Wo don't recommend advertising as the best way to get a wife ; but we know that it is the best way to get a good trade. You can't earn enough in one week to last a whole year, and you can't adver? tise on that plan either. A large advertisement once, and then discontinued, creates the impression that the man has fizzled. Injudicious advertising is like fish ing where there's no fish. You need to let the lines fall in the right place. A constant dropping will wear a rock. Keep dropping your advertisements on the public aud they will soon melt un? der it like rock salt. Large type isi't ueccssary i...

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER, WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 28, 1871.

Every Radical member bad an amend? ment to offer, ora plum in the bill in which there was a small privatejob, aDd by thc time the bill come to a vote, there were twenty new buildings ordered to bo built, at a present outlay of 83,000.000, but which in the end would cost 820,000,090. Mr. Cox denounced this as the worst job that ever came before the House. There was a regular bargain and sale o.r votes among thc Radicals ; you vote for my little job, I'll vote for jours. Notwithstanding the immensity of the jib as it stood, there were so many Radical members whose little jobs were cast overboard, that they were strong enough, ...

THE CHESTER TROUBLES. TWO SIDES OF THE,QUESTION. WHO IS TO BLAME? From the Colombia papen we get full partieulars of the difficulties^that arose recently io Chester. The Union, a Radical paper, publishes the following account, which it announces as coming from a civil officer of the County, and as being "thc unqualified truth." The statement says that the difficulty was commenced about two week? ago by a body of disguised men in the upper part of thc county, who went to the houses of three colored men, took them out aud beat them badly, and took from their houses three muskets belonging to the State, thc men beaten being mem? bers of one o' the militia companies. The matter having been reported to thc captain of thc company, on the fol? lowing day he went unarmed to the house of one F. Crantford, who he suspected of being one of the parties who took thc arms, and there found the guns in a broken and useless condition, which guns bc carried away.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. WASHINGTON, D. C., March 14,1871. -The question of adjournment still hangs. I-rom tbe large Dumber of bills, some 190, which were introduced into the House yesterday, one would infer tbat Congress meant business; bot when they agree to adjourn at once hy a vote of 123 to 65, calculation is upset. It Was well known when the vote was taken that the Senate would not concur, and this fact may account fur the large vote in its favor. The President, Mor? ton, lien Butler and others of tbat elk are very anxious to have another out? rage perpetrated on the people of the South, before the adjournment of Con? gress, in the shape of a Ku Klux bill. The Senate is willing, but the members io the House, just fresh from the peo? ple, having passed through the last elections, know their temper and do not feel safe in aiding this sort o? legisla tion, and would rather shirk it by an adjournment than to face the music and dare the tyranny of party, the frown of the President, s...
