IFua to* Pfalladclphl* Tine*. Capt John Burton, master of one of the steamers of the Occidental line, playing between this city and Havanna, arrived yesterday from a round trip often days duration. The captain is an ardent Re publican. When he left home his mind was oppressed with gloom. The Electoral Commission had concluded its labors, but it seemed the settled purpose of the De mocrats iu the House to 'obstruct the pro gress ol the count to such an extent that t would be impossible to have; a peaceful inauguration, while many were inclined to think there would be a new election. Capt. Burton was, therefore, relieved, oh land ing, to learn that the inauguration bad taken place. He went to his.favorite re- sort, the Union League Club, to learn the particulars. There he met his old friend, CoL Snowdrift, who always knows the news. £ “Glad to see you, John,”.said toe Cpio- nel, “and I know y'ou are rejoiced to hear that the country is!safe. I was just read ing a good thing in the Bulletin, giving Blaine a sharp rap. By the way, what an ass be has made of himself.? “The Bulletin ! Asst Blaine t” replied Burton, “ Surely the Bulletin has not gone over to the Democrats!” “ Ob, no; but Blaine’s course, you know, has been too outrageouslorauything. The idea of his antagonizing the Administra tion at the very start-” “Blaine antagonizing the Administra tion P “ Yes, as the Bulletin says fl When the public business of this nation is intrusted to men of proved fitness, who shall remain in place to do the work to which they are trained, it Is pdssible that the elect! re offices will be filled generally by men who have some other claim to ' than their capacity for making to the mob of plcae-hunf “hall fell M muffin vffio .has'*5nongin® ihjrst'to taste of the stream that flows .ftoin the public treasury. " I wonder how th« Camerons will take that sort of talk!” Capt. Burton stared at his- friend in amazement Was it possible that Snow- drift had turned reformer^ No, it could not be ; this was a guy. He snatched the paper in his friend’s hand. Yas, it was the Bulletin, and the words read were cor rectly.quoted. But why this fling at the Camerons 1” “ I am glad to see,” continued Snow drift, “that old Simon has been beaten at least. Bat the cheekiest thing he has ever done is this attempt to put Don in the Senate.” “Don in the Senate! Then Wallace is dead 1 You don’t mean it “ Nothing of the kind; but of course the old man wasn’t going to stay in the Sen ate after Schurz and Key had been cram- med down his throat.” “ I beg you to explain.” “Why, don’t you know that Schurz andKey wire appointed to Cabinet places I” “ Schurz and Key! Who is Key I” “Why, the ex-rebel General, you know; thieue who was the ~ ' from Tennessee. He Uuui, and, of course, it him a show.” Capt. Burton was possible that I have been misinformed t Did Tilden get in after all!” “ Why, no, you stupid fellow. But con ciliation is the watchword under the new regime. As the National Republican re marks, “ the adventure must withdraw and leave the origiual inhabitants of the South to control their owu affairs in their own wayand as the same able paper says in another plaee; ■ the gory garment must he buried.” “You puzzle me beyond measure, Colo nel. I never expected to hear this sort of talk from you.” “ 1 don’t see anythiug astonishing about it. The President is iu earnest, and, 'with Sherinan'aud Schurz iu th^ Cabinet, Mat thews aud Lamar in the Senate, aria Gar field aud Gibson in the House, tbe bloody shirt will never flap in the morning breeze again.” ‘ Who is Matthews and who is Gibson V 'Gibson is oue of the best or our ex clothes, and again. What do Millions of dis in the : appii Attorney-General will attend to the carpet baggers, never fear-” “Now, Colonel, you are carrying this quiz too far. I was half inclined to be- lieveyou, but when you say that Cameron and :T!aft have gone back on Packard and Cbatnberiahi,- yon must take me for iny.” Taft and Cameron, the—. Why, they are hot in'the new Administration.' What use ban Hayes for such Bourbons?” “What! You don’t mean to say that af ter electing Hayes these good Bepubiicans have been set adrift P “I don’t meap any thing else. Such,... ..... :at , obstructions are no Bepubiicans. They ] Norristown must go to the rear, sir ; they must go to the rear. Bat you are behind the age ; it will take too much time to get you straight. Bead the Times, old boy, and' see what has been guirig*dlf‘“tor the past ten days,- and then come up to the club-house to night and foil into line. Armitt Brown aud Wayne McVeigh are going to speak, and they’ll make It livelv for the carpet baggers. Ha! ha!” This capped the climax That Snow drift should advise any body to read the Times ! Barton’s worst suspicions were confirmed. His friend had gone over to tbe Democracy. Nevertheless, half doubt ing whether he was awake, he picked up the Press and found, in running over half a dozen issues, that tbe half had not been told. “ Its Bip Van Winkle outdone !” he muttered, as he sadlv left the reading room, and with determined tread went down to Seventh and Chestnut to hear the truth from lips which are never faithless to party. A Fable Prom the Argonaut. From the New York World. A young cock and hen were speaking of the size of eggs. The cock said: “ I once laid an egg”— “Oh, did youP interrupted the hen with a derisive cackle. “ Pray how did you manage it P The cock felt injured in his self-esteem, and turning bis back upon the hen, ad dressed himself to a brood of young chick ens : “ I once laid an egg”— Tbe chickens chirped incredulously and passed on. The insulted bird reddened in the wattles with indignation, and strutting up to the patriarch of the entire barnyard, repeated his assertion. The patriarch nodded gravely, as it the feat was an every day affair, and the other continued : “ I once laid an egg alongside a water melon and compared tbe two. The vege table was considerably the larger.” “ This fable is intended to show the absurdity of hearing all a man has to »y-” Jackmi and Hi. Bluer.

Her brother, the General, fre quently visited her, and during these vis its he would invariably go to the quarters of the slaves fpr tbe purpose of exhorting them on the subject of religion. Frequent ly the soldier would be seen on bis knees in tbe midst of the children of Africa, of fering earnest prayers for their salvation. When the war broke out tbe brother es poused the cause of the South and became the greatest of all Confederate Generals,* with a worid-wide reputation for consum mate military ability, and laid dowu his life on the bloody field of Chancellorsville. ) sister, iu spite of the opposition of her hand and her relatives, sided with the cause of the Union and remained true to that cause to the end of the war. So great was the feeling engendered against her that she eventually separated from her hus- band and moved to Spriogfieid, Ohio, and resided with a daughter whd had married a Union officer. The Temperance revival in Detroit has set many men to thinking seriously. One of the serious was discovered coming out of a Larned street saloon, yesterday, and an acquaintance collared him and said “ You have been drinking.” • “ Not a drop,” was the reply. But I saw you wiping off your mouth.” “ Yes, I wiped off my mouth, but I had not been drinking.” “That’s honest, is it?” “That’s honest. If you don’t believe it smell my breath.” He turned his face, the other got his nose dowu to inhale and as he staggered back lie called out: “ If a little whiskey will kill that smell, you go and get it right away, and Fll stand between you and the pledge, aud pay for the drink to boot!”—Detroit Free Press.

When it was first pro posed to him he stud r^B-b-b-lue g-g-g-gl- gl-gl-ass b-b-b be b-bl-bl-bl-owed 1” But in less than ten minutes he artiooiated whole sentences without a stammer. A left-handed girl from the Eighth ward, after using the blue glass sixteen minutes, found that she could use one hand as well as the other—and better too. A crosseyed boy was bronght in contact with the blue glass yesterday for ten min utes, at the expiration of which the twist was entirely removed from both eyes. Another boy with a -Wart-c® the end ol bis nose was subjected to the bine glass bath, and at the end of twenty minutes the wart had entirely disappeared. P.8. So had the boy. A painter fell from the- fourth story of a building to tbe pavement below, during an alarm of fire, and a steam fire engine which was passing ran over him. He was removed to a room in the vicinity and placed before the blue glass, which ap peared to quiet him, and though he sub sequently died, it is not believCd to have been owing to any defect in the glass, but from an attack ef malignant dyspepsia, superinduced by the violent exercise he bad taken. The only instance of a failure of the blue glass cure, which has cornff^under my ob serration, occurred yesterday! A man who said he had been lame for some time, and walkpd with a cane, was placed in a blue giassi sunbath, and left to himself in the room for an hour, at the .expiration of which he was found by an attendant ’ fast , and with one leg of tia pantaloons up—the leg was a wmalen one, and tient stumped off i * rin " fhaf lrf it wai u blaste*?*!. “ The Dark Beilina Danube.” j Bats have fewer friends and more ene The river Danube has figured largely in rays than anything of the four-logged pur- history for two thousand years, and it, swashun on the face of, aud yet again becomes the object to which the eyes ’ rats are az plenty now az iu the paimyist ol the world are turned. It furnished a' days ov the Bomau Empire. highway for the Tarim in sixteen and sev enteenth centuries to penetrate Europe as far as Vienna, and in the days of the Cru saders it became an outlet for the religious enthusiasm of Europe to flow to the Holy- Laud. The Danube, from its sources iu Baden to the Black Sea, is 1,820 miles long and drains, with its tributarie, an area of S ver 300,000 square miles. It passes trough Bavaria, Austria, Hungary, forms the boundary between Hungary aud Se-via to the Carpathian mountains, whore it sep arates Boumania and Bulgaria aud passes into the Black sea by its several mouths, tbe principal one being thatef Sulina.

Maybe.” “Yes, sir,it makes me awful mad,’ man was saying on a Michigan avenue car yesterday. “I ordered that meat at 8 o’ clock this morning, aud it never came up at all. My dinner was spoiled, my wife vexed, and Hi give that butcher a blessing.” “ It is a great annoyance,” remarked his friend. “ Yes, it is, and Pm mad enough to fight gave the butcher the order myself, so that he hasno excuse. Oh, HI go for him!” “Maybe you forgot to put down the cash,” said a man with very long legs who sat opposite. “ I used to beat them that way during the war, but I can’t do it now.” “ Maybe you are an impudent scoundrel!” roared the first, growing very red in th« face. “ Y6s—maybe,” sighed long-legs, and he sank back and add he merely threw out his remark as a suggestion.—Detrot Free Press. St-lrctins Flour. In selecting flour first look to the color. If it is white, with a yellowish straw col ored tint, buy it. If it is white with a specks in it, refuse it Second, examine its adhesiveness—wet and and knead a lit tle of ft between yonr fingers; if it works soft and sticky, it is poor. Third, throw a little lump of dried flour against a smooth surface; if ft falls like powder, ft is bad. Fourth, squeeze some of the flour tightly in your hand; if it retains the shape given by the pressure, that, too is a good sign. It is safe to buy flour that will stand ail these tests. These modes are given by all flour dealers, and they pertain to a mat ter that concerns everybody—the .staff of L‘ V ••■thera Jearaaliiua. The Alabama State Journal joins tbe grand ? caravan of laily journals which have passed from life unto death within the past few months at the South.

BraTe Dmmmer-Bojs. In one of the battles of tbe Peninsular war, a drummer whose name and corps have both been unfortunately lost to his tory, having wandered from his regiment, was taken prisoner by tho French, and brought before Napoleon as a spy. Bona parte frowned heavily upon his prisoner as he demanded of him his rank in the British army. On being told that it was thaV of a drummer, the Emperor, to test the of.the reply, caused a dram to be bi djsquostcd bialirisnripi; tA The drummer’s eyes sparkled wii thusiasm as he gave the terrific rol rataplan demanded,- ... , ■ * “ Now beat a retreat,” ’said Napoleon. > “ lean not,” replied the drummer, proud ly; “no such thing is kaewnin tho -Eng lish army. We never retreat.” “ Good!” exclaimed the Emperor. “ You are a brave lad, and may rejoin your own army.” Then turning to those near bin, Napo leon gave directions that the drummer should be conducted back in safety to the English lines. Fortune is, however, a fickle jade, for at the battle of Waterloo this humijle hero met with a sad death. He bad been out with a body ot skirmishers, who were suddenly attacked by cavalry and driven back on their supports. The latter formed square, aud the earth shook beneath the feet of the advancingcuirassiers as they rode right up to the points of the bayonets. Beneath that rampart of steel lay the drummer, who had been too late to seek the shelter of the square. He was sale, however, and when the horsemen were driven back, he jumped merrily upon his legs, and shouted: “Halloo, com rades ! here I am, safe -nough 1” These were the last words he ever uttered; for at that moment a round-shot carried his head off bis shoulders, and bespattered his comrades with his braiDs. Such is the for tune of war. Id the Crimea, on the evening of the day on which an unsuccessful attack had been made upon the Sedan, a drummer was ob served to leavo the shelter of the trenches with his can of tea in bis hand, and in tbe midst of a tearful shower of shot and shell from the Bussian batteries, he threaded his way among the wounded, giving a drink here and a drink there until his can was emptied. Then flinging the empty can to wards the enemy with a gesture of defi ance, be walked coolly back to bis post. ■ the means of this timely assistance some the wounded were able to bear their sufferings until darkuess enabled them to be rescued from death. The drummer boy who did this brave deed received the Vic-, toria Cross from Her Majesty’s own band. —Chambers’ Journal.
