At the culminating point of the piece there is a grand engagement between a band of brigands and a party of sharpshooters, the former stationed upon a group of rocks, and the latter on the level ground. Just as tho combat was at its height one of the sharpshooters fell, and in so natural a manner that tbo act was greeted with an enthusiastic round of applause. A mo ment afterwards, however, it was plain that something had MM wrong. A cou ple of men rushed upon the stage and lifted the body of the prostrate actor, when it was at ouce seen that ho was lying in a pool of gore. Cries and shrieks arose from every...

We haveomongs* us great men too, but who fear in too many instances to come forward and de- Clare to the world that they bave erred and done wrong. But for this want of moral courage, a number of our sensible men, who are still clinging to old obsolete anti progressive Democratic ideas, only because it is fashiouablo for respectable people to do so, would, like our colemporary heading this article, come out from among the wick ed onog and proclaim, that for the future they would bave no more of it.

#vctunq 9 tats f oitvnal. SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 20, 1871 The Ktnperor'a New Stilt. BY HANS cniIKTIAN ANDERSEN. Many years ago there lived an emperor, who cared so very much about having new clothe?, that he spent all his money mere ly fjr the sako of being very smartly dressed. He did not care mnch about his troops ; he did not care either about going to the play or driving out, unless it were that he might show his new clothes. He had a now suit for every hour in the day ; and, as one usually says of a king or em peror, he held a privy council, so of him it was said, hi* majesty sat in council with his tailors. couple of swindlers, who called themselves first-rate weavers, made their appearance. They pretended that they were able to weave the richest stuffs, in which not only tb« colors and patterns were extremely beautiful, but that the clothes made of •uch stuffs possessed the wonderful prop erly of lemaioing invisible to him who wu unfit for the office be held, or who was extrem...

gumma £ tat* jmmml. MONDAY EVENING, MAY 22. IH7I. Rambling Letter from a novl-_ Cor respondent. Janesville, Wis., May 16, 1871. To the Editor of the State Journal. This city of 10,000 iuhobitar.ts is ninety miles northwest of Chicago, on the direct line of the Northern Pacific railroad, which reaches Duluth—standing at Ihe head of I>ake Superior, and 1,200 miles of lake navigation. This road, which has been so magnificently endowed by the government, is now being pushed for ward by all the energies of its projectors. Many have doubted whether the line chosen by this company could even be worked successfully on account of the extreme cold in tho range of latitude along which it wbb proposed to construct the road. Investigations already made establish the fact that crops ripen and the soil is both fertile and productive, and the temperature is such as to secure along j the line of the road a hardy, enterprising and intelligent population. It has long been known that the iso thermal...

TUEvSOAY EVKNINU, MAY 23. 1871 Tito Idea or l.nw. From a recent essay by Longfellow, re csntly read in Boston, we make iho follow ing floe extract: Mr. Longfellow is a fair, Sixon-iooking man, who gives you the impression of an extremely sensitive and refined organiza tion. Radical iv his creed, ha is deeply religious in his nature. His voice is calm and sweet, rather than passionate or elo quent, and his manner is at onco modest and earnest. Ho spoke of tho "Idea of Law" in God's dealings with men. The idea of law holds a largo place in modern thought. The laws of nature, the laws of society, are phrases familiar in all our oars. We hoar also of the laws of trade, of supply and demand, and the like, indicating a sense of a certain order of events taking place beyond the control of individual wills, something inherent in the nature of things, making them to be what they are, and to go on as they do. This idea of law is everywhere taking the place of the notion of accident, or of arb...

After lingering In Hindostan for several years, it swept across the Bay of Bengal to Siam, Malacca, Cochin, and from thenco to China. From the western shores of Hin doßtan it passed into Arabia, Persia, Tur key, Asia and Egypt.

Only good Farming pays.

The good farmer is proved such by the steady appreciation (f -his crops. Any one may reap an ample harvest from a fer tile virgin soil ; the good fanner alone grows good crops at first, and better and bettor over afterward. 111.
