—«_ja_____7£giSttfcMtf_ Tales of My Grandfather. Vaader1llt(I-fty Tean Ago. From the K. T. Time*. ••My first acquaintance with Van derbilt dated from about W20. Steam boating never was in my line, though I had no objection to taking a venture in a sailing craft. It might bave been in 1825 that Stephen Girard of Phil adelphia had an old brig for sale, which some four of five of us bought. She was of teak, and might have been fifty years old when we purchased her. We owned her for 20 years, then sold her for more than we paid for her, and I remember to have followed her up in the papers with a certain amount of interest, and if my memory serves me rightly, I think I read she came to grief some time in 1856, in the China seas. We were in the habit of sending the old brig to Madeira, and she brought back wine on ship's account, and did quite well. She was so slow that the wine acquir ed, generally,age on the voyage. Some of you may remember a particular pale Madeira. No you don't? Dear ...

^ggggg^* Wovtbingtoi §Mtaw*. Terms $a.oo a Year, $1.00 for Six Months. THURSDAY. MARCH 8, 1877. Hayes was inaugurated on Monday last. Now let us have peace. The Austin Transcript says of Beech er: It is not much to be a man, and yet to be SUCH a man is wonderful!" A most estimable Christian lady was driven to suicide the other day in New York by two scandalous valentines, one entitled A Seamstress" and the other one," In Love with the Preacher." They were sent by an euvious neigh bor and caused some scandal in the neighborhood and in the church to which she belonged. So sensetive was she to the outrage, that she threw her self from an altitude of fifty feet and was crushed to death by the fall. We need stringent laws against sending ev en comic valentines, it seems. For our part, we have for years received scur rilous valentines and letters, and weport, have generally glanced at them just far enough to see their purport, and then threw them into the stove or tore them up.

isssum How Charlie San Away. "I declarer's too mean for anything, .mamma," said Charlie, angrily, his forehead knit into a thousand cross little wrinkles. "If I can't do like other boys, I'll just runaway alto gether." His mother looked very sorrowful, for Charlie was her only boy, and his naughtiness sent a sharp pain through her heart. He was only nine years old, but of late had become so head strong and willful that he was almost beyond her control, and that threat of running away had been oft repeated. That night she went to sleep, and a sudden idea came into her mind. It was a very curious plan by which she hoped to cure Charlie of his willful ways. The next afternoon her boy came rushing in after school, dashed his books down,and was rushing off again, when his mother called him back. "Where are you going, Charlie "Only out for a row on the pond, with Jack, mother I'll be back by tea time." "But it's beginning to rain.ahd your throat is still sore, my son. Suppose you ask Jack...

VOLV lhe RECORD OP THE NKWS. (t inter Mathews Writes to Packard. Stanley Matthews a prominent Ohio Republican and brother-in-law ot President Hayes, has written a letter to Packard ot Lou isiana, and says: Without reference to the rightfulness ot the origin of your title as Governor, I am of the opinion that it would be out of the ques tion for a Republican administration to sustain it, as it must necessarily force the use of fed eral arms. As soon as the existing military orders are withdrawn, the Nicholls govern ment will become the only existing govern ment and will have to be recognized then as such. Packard very emphatically announces his determination to stick, and concludes his let ter is follows Personally my position here ha* been, and will be, until the general government see fit tojrecognize my authority as Governor, a most perilous one, and ft would be a source of sat isfaction did the responsibility rest upon some one other than myself.

PLEASANT THOUGHTS. BY F. B. PARKER. I lore to recline by the dashing rill, Where the foam and the bubbles glide Over its face, as it springs from the Hill, Or leaps irom the mountain-side. My thoughts then are sweet my soul feels Sen aee, Love's mystic tendrils entwine About the lone heart, to give it release, And All it with raptures divine. I think of my youth, those days of delight, Of those fields where I used to roam, Of the babbling brook, so pearly and bright, That ran by my childhood's home. As the nodding grass irom the bank bends low, 'And-bathes in the silvery tide, And the sparkling sands in the sun-light glow, Near the rocks where the fishes hide. I think of the days wheD I used to roam Through the meadows, rich and green, By the laughing brook and out from the loam, The innocent violets gleam. As the waters dash o'er the rocky bed, And fall to the bubbling poo), And the birds sing merrily o'er my head, In the foliage green and cool. think of'the days when I used to ste...

[For the Advance] HOW IS IT? It seems quite certain that the act of the Legislature of last winter, repeal ing the law authorizing the foreclosure of real estate mortgage by advertise ment, will bar creditors and subsequent mortgages from the statutory redemp tion from all such foreclosures made since April 1st, 1876. The section, (sec. 10, chap. 81, Gen. Stat. 1866,) which gave the right to cred itors having a legal or equitable lien on the land, to redeem at the expiration of the year after foreclosure in conformi ty to UnVstatute, is repealed. Probably an action in court to redeem may beas maintained. Still, many will suppose the usual mode of redemption can yet be pursued, and neglect their remedy. Section 13of the same chapter, which gives the mortgagor, his heirs or assigns a statuto...

WHAT BROWN I/EFT TOWN FOR Such a commotion as there was in Barbary Green—among the feminine portion of it was never known before by the oldest inhabitants. Thomas Jefferson Brown, who was considered as much a fixture in the place as the town pump, had gone, no one knew whither. That he should have left town with out telling where he was going, what he was going for, and when he wasweddin' coming back, were considered in theprisin' light of a personal affront by his el* low*townspeople in general, and the widow Peabody in particular. The Widow Peabody was one of those kind hearted creatures to be found, to a greater or less extent, in every country village.who take a deep interest in their neighbors' affairs, often neglecting their own to attend to them. But virtue in this wicked world of ours often fails of its reward and we are sorry to say that this worthy individual's disinterested ef forts in her neighbors' behalf not un freqnently met with a base return, some of them being so u...

-H. w.-' ^ortlnngtou gritauKt* Tcrma $a.oo a Year, $1.00 for Six Months. THURSDAY. APRIL 5, 1877. Henry Hinds, attorney and editor of the Slmkopee Argus, takes the ground that mortgage foreclosures may still be by advertisement, notwithstanding the new law, because this right existed and was exercised before .any statutes were made regulating such foreclosures. The right to foreclose by advertise ment, he claims, is not given by statute, but is given by the power of sale con tained in the mortgage, and the fore Closure was merely regulated, not given, by statute. Let us hear from some of our lawyers on this point. The Y. M. C. A. and representatives of the churches have finally requested Gov. Fillsbury to appoint a day of fast ing and prayer for deliverance from the grasshopper plague. Really, it begins to look as though Minnesota were a Christian State. We have urged this for several years, and the fact that our suggestion was not adopted is a most humiliating commentary, (1) upon ...
