A Grammatical Dnelltst. AX AKI'SINO DfCIUBHT. Two English gentlemen once stepped into a coffeo-house in Faris. where they observed a tall, odd-looking man, who appeared not to be v native, sittiug ut one of tlie tables, and looking around him with tho utmost stone-like gravity of countenance upon every object. Soon after the Englishmen entered, one of them told the other that a celebrated dwarf had arrived ut l'aris. At this the grave-looking personage above men tioned opened bis mouth and spoke. "I arrive," suiil he. "Thou arrivest, he arrives; we arrive, you arrive, they arrive." The Englishman, whose remark seemed to have suggested this mysterious speech, stepped up to the stranger and Baked: '•Did you speak to me. sir?" "1 speak," replied the stranger, "thou speakest. he speaks; we speak, you speak, they speak." "How is this?" said the Englishman. "Do you menu to insult me?" The stranger replied: "I insult, thou insultest, he insults; we insult, yon insult, they insult." " This ...

TanftMivcr SATURDAY, JANUARY 15. IR7«. Temperance and Prohibition. The time was when tlie zealous advocates of temperance were con tent to rest their cause after having availed themselves of the arms of moral suasion; but now days they come in to figure as a political factor and ask for legislation to accomplish what they have failed to do by humb ler means, it is not a new thing in history to attempt to legislate away an existing evil, and it may also be remarked with truth, that failures of such attempts arc not new things. Total prohibition by law, of both the manufacture and sale of all kinds of intoxicating liquors, is now the great object toward which the organized temperance societies seen to be working. The object as yet has not been attained, and probably will not be attaintd within the memory of living man. unless the world should take a more rapid stride in the on ward march toward perfection tli.in it is reasonable to suppose possible in view of cxistine conditions, It i...

\Y, JANUARY 22, 1878 I lie * ivi! Service. One oi the most, if not the most important interest in a representative government, is the Civil Service. Embracing as it docs in its broadest scope every department of the legis lative and executive functions, it may almost come under the head of the science of government itself. A more strict construction, however, of the words Civil Service, disposes ol it as rather a strong branch of the governmental tree than as the tree itself. It is simply the service in the several departments of the executive and administrative offices from that of Judge of the Supreme Court to the wayside Postmaster upon the western frontier. It is the arm of governmental authority; the means by which the laws are administered, and the details of the governmental science carried out. Whal import ant functions arc these: how inti mately interwoven arc they with the life, stability and prosperity of the Union of the States; in what a high sow arc those who occupy th...

Tanrouvrr ffndfprnilr.it. PUBLISHED EVEKY SATURDAY SOCIAL.—The Mite Societies party which met at Mrs. Whitney's on Thurs day evening had a larger attendance than anything of the kind before this winter. The night was freezing cold, and the ground frozen hard, two con ditions which always give zest to social gatherings. The piano music and sing ing was furnished by Mrs. Nicholson, assisted by the amateur talent of Van couver. The young ladies seemed somewhat backward in this respect, but before going home time kindly perform ed their part. At nine oVlock the company had the pleasure of welcoming a large number of the singing class of Prof. Prentice, The evening, as is al ways the ease at Mr. and Mrs. Whit ney's, was a very enjoyable one, which will hereafter be remembered by all with pleasure.

Friendship is like a debt of honor; the moment it is talked ot il loses its real name and assumes the ungrateful form of obligation. Popnlar rrlory is a period onqnette; her lovers must toil, feel every in quietude, indulge every caprice, and perhaps be jilted at lust. Men seem neither to understand their . riches nor their strength -of the former, they believe much greater things than tin ', should: of the latter, much less. Apology is only egotism wrong side out. It is mighty presumptuous on our part to suppose our small failures of so much consequence that we must make a talk about them.

Many persons enter upon the culture of cranberries without making them selves acquainted with even the rudi ments ot success.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 39, 1876. Senator Morton's Resolution. If a lawless minority, by means of imtimidation, dissimulation and fraud, succeed in defeating the will of the majority at the ballot box and in the legislative councils, the Federal Gov ernment should permit the despotism to remain unrightcd rather «han in vade the sacred realm of State Sov ereignty. This is in substance the proposition offered by the opponents to the resolution of Senator Morton, providing for an investigation of the Mississippi troubles. Wars of races and domestic violence have prevailed too often in that State to make it ne cessary to argue to the general read er that there is nt least some founda tion for the statements made by the distinguished Scntor, if nol prima facia evidence that what he alleges in regard to the lawlessness in Mis sissippi is true. Applying to this premiss the logic of common sense, the conclusion is that as domestic vi olence exists it is the duty of some power to rectify the evil....
