The cars were hurrying toward the !,
city as if conscious that business hours
had begun. Our party was seated
comfortably, full of plans for doing
all that we wished to do while in
town. Presently a friend seeing us
came over and took a seat with us.
and happily diverted our cumbered
brains by incidentally mentioning that
he had traveled to and fro over the
State of Maine time and again. We
were all interested at once; for was
not that our Fatherland, and did we
not feel as if “our foot was on its na
tive heath ?”
Alter much chit chat and many tales
of adventures; our visitors becoming
more serious, said, I left one of those
towns one fine September morning in
a top buggy with a good horse. Two
or three tntles out I noticed that the
road stretched up and over a long
steep bill. As my horse crept up, I
saw not far before me a person walk
ing. She looked very old, and scarce-
ly appeared to move, so slow was her
gait. As I came up I said. “Why,
mother what are you doing here?”
“Why, man,” said she, “I am going to
the next town to visit my son.” “But
marm, it is seventeen miles.” “Oh,
well, I shall call at some farmer’s
for the night, and hope to-morrow eve
ning to drink tea with my William.”
“If,” said I, “you think you can
trust me I shall be glad to give you a
seat in my carriage, as iny rout lies
through that town.”
“Low, child, this is good of you,
and praised be God.” With much
ado she was finally seated aud we jog
ged on. She entertained me with an
account of her family, why and when
she came from Scotland; said she
was eighty-five years old, aud with
many pioua expletives, unwittingly
taught me a lesson of gratitude.
When she alighted at “my William’s
door,” she heaped her blessings upon
me, thanking me over and over, and
saying, “I shall be on my knees at
twelve o’clock praying to God for you,
and remember, sir, that God has prom
ised to hear the prayer of the widow
and the fatherless.” I smiled my thanks
unconcernedly, and said, “Good-bye,
good-bye I must go,” but she held my
arm, saying, “Remember, boy, I shall
pray for you to-night at twelve.”
Thanking her once more, I was soon
seated, and trotted off at a brisker
rate than usual; for must I not reach
the Penobscot and take the Boston
boat, at Bangor. So on I went and
as I drove into town in ample season
to secure my passage, I moralized that
The young Moorish girl of Algeria
is one of the prettiest and most fasci
nating creat ures in existence Her fea
tures are oval, her eyes are wonderful
ly cxpiessive ; but she is as deceitful
as the most artful European coquette
The gracefulness of her carriage is ex
ceedingly striking. Her hair, which
is not Hiifrequently straight, though
sometimes curly, is as dark as the ra
ven’s plumage. It is generally arran
ged in bands and is passed round the
head and fastened in a simple or double
tail, which is tied with ribbons, and
almost sweeps the ground. The coif
fure is covered with a velvet chachia,
which is fastened under the chin with
two pieces of ribbon. The Moorish
maiden has very small hands and tiny
feet. Iler stature is about the middle
height, and her carriage graceful.
Her cotume is generally very elegant.
The plainest toilet consists of a gauze
chemise, with short sieves, and a ser-
rouai (pair of drawers,) made of white
calico or mus'in, very .wide and reach
ing down to the knee. It not uufre-
quently happens that the Moorish
maiden wears, in addition to the above
toilet, the djuhadoli, a kiud of richly
embroidered vest which seldom or nev
er reaches above the sholders, which
tends to contract the chest.
At other times she wears the rlila,
a kind of jacket made of silk, and rich
ly embroided iu gold. She wears round
her waist a large piece of striped silk,
which reaches down to the ground:
and over that a silken sash, the golden-
embroidered euds of which haug down
in front. When the rhla is worn, the
coiffure is changed ; and the chachia is
replaced by a silk handkerchief of
bright colors. We must not omit to
mention the habauches, which are made
of green velvet, and which almost crip
ple the feet as much as the slippers
worn by the Chinese ladies.
The Moorish women never move
abroad without being closely veiled.
They envelop themselves so in a white
kai/c, in Algiers, and iu a blue one at
Constantine, that it is utterly impossi-
to catch a glimpse of any other part
of their features than their eyes.

Philadelphia, Oct. 16.—The Citi
zens’ Municipal Reform Association
have already caused the arrest of four
parties who were prominent in the
election frauds in this city. They
have been bound over to appear at
the November term of the court.
Persons who witnessed fraud at the
polls appear daily at the rooms of
the association and give information.
A committee has been appointed by
the citizens’ Municipal Reform As
sociation and all these cases will be
followed up as early as practicable.
Several election judges have made
statements as to “stuffing” ballots af
ter the ballot boxes had been sealed.
These Frauds were transacted in the
Fourteenth and Fifteenth Wards. It
is claimed by the Citizens’ Municapal
Reform Association that the reform
city ticket was elected by at least five
thousand majority, and that they have
sufficient evidence to prove the fact.
The asssociation is being strongly or
ganized, and announce a determina
tion to ferret out the entire rascality
at the late election. About five hun
dred persons have made complaints and
affidavits as to how they were swin
dled out of their votes by “challenging”

An Appeal from the South.—A
New York dispatch in the Western
prints says a circular lias been receiv
ed at Democratic headquarters, ad
dressed to merchants of the city, by
merchants of the South. It asks them
as they value the prosperity of the
Southern States to do what lies in
their power to defeat the re-election of
President Grant. They claim that
four years of carpet-bag rule will fix
upon them a commercial paralysis.—
In supporting Horace Greeley they say
they give every possible evidence of
thei r des.ire for reconciliation and peace;
that foyr more years of Grant at the
South means probably a war of races,
certainly a re-enthronement of carpet
baggers, and they express the hope
that if commercial men of the North
value the revival of the industry of the
South, they will unite in saving its
people from impending calamity.—
These circulars have been sent from
every portion of the South, especially
the cotton States.
The Preservation of Leaves.—
Now that the leaves are beginning to
assume their autumnal tints, the ques
tion as to the best method of preserv
ing them is in order. It is only of late
years that the collection ol leaves at
tracted much attention, but it is now
a matter ol business no less than pleas
ure. The fancy goods shops of larger
cities are each fall supplied with the
-rarest specimens, aud boxes of them
are each year shipped to Europe by
tradesmen." The process of preserva
tion is very simple. A few thick
blotting pads, some sheets of drawing
paper, some camel’s hair brush and
some amber varnish are all the neces
sary appliances, save a thick book to
press the leaves between the blotting
pads so as to extract the moisture be-
fore they are varnished and placed up
on the papers. Already the leaves
are turning, and the ivy, especially, is
in proper condition. The poisonous
plant makes the prettiest leaves, and
is not so dangerous but that most peo
ple can handle it in the fall.
in an instant the diip was filled to suf
focation with the vapor. Every mo
ment we expected to see the flames
burst out. The terror of the hour can
better be imagined than described.
There were seventy-five ladies and
more than twrice as many gentlemen.
The officers found all discipline impos
sible ; even the coal-heavers entered
the ladies’ state rooms, and took life-
preservers from them. As I rushed
to the forward deck my heart was dull,
and I could only cry, “Oh, that that
widow’s prayer might be answered,
and we yet be saved.” The night
wore on, and still we were afloat, and
neither fire nor water had devoured
us. The next day there loomed up iu
our wake a large white steamer, white
and fair as the wings ot Mercy. She
threw us a line and brought us safely
to port. Here our friend paused, but
as no one spoke, he said, now this is
true, and no exaggeration ; and I be
lieve that the prayers of that woman
saved the ship. There was an excla
mation of yes, yes, from all and as the
train drew m the dark, smoky depot,
some one murmured Tennyson’s favo
rite lines :
“Pray for ray sonl
Wrought hy prayer
Thau this world dreams of.”

While President Grant was out

One B. W. Harris was on the 10th
instant nominated by the Massachu
setts Radicals to succeed the Hon.
Oakes Ames. We know nothing of
this Mr. Harris, but we object to Mr.
Ames being superseded. He is an em
inently representative Radical. He
thoroughly comprehends Grant and
Grantism, and knows that stealing is a
prerequisite to Radical favor. If the
tates should condemn us to a second
term of Grantism, we respectfully sug
gest that the Hon. Oakes Ames, of
Massachusetts, ought to be made Sec
retary ot the Treasury.—Courier-Jour
In the event of Grant’s re-election
North Carolina and Georgia are both
to be reconstructed again. From the
former the infamous Pool is to be con
tinued as Senator in spite of the wish
es of the people and the action of the
Legislature, while over the latter Bul
loch will perhaps be reinstated as Gov
ernor. Republican government and
constitutional liberty at the South are
dependent upon the defeat of General
aces, the bequests of a dead man’s un
graved wealtli—what is the honor of
such estates? Pocket-book aristocracy
is a tottering citedel, which keeps no
certain possessor. Brains and mechan
ical talent mount higher on the ladder
that leans on the steeple of glory ; they
exalt intelligence and do not debase
spirituality. Work is a safty-valve to
many a temperament overflowing
with nervous vigor, whose possessors,
left without labor, idle warriors on the
battle-fields of the world, would perish
and die, or else occupy the cells of the
lunatic asylums; madmen for want of
work. Good, efficient, able workers
stand foremost in the world s army of
benefactors, sure to do the world laud-
ibie service. Their power extends
over all its vast surface. They are its
true kings and queens. In the needs
of the rich, in the shams of ostenta
tion, the trifles that form the sum to
tal of fashionable extravagance, the
glistening ray of their honest expert
labor is sure to shine. Without their
drudgery, the dependent Mordecais
would be naked and hungry; the opu
lent wait as centries on the cost of the
laborer. Even employers are bewild
ered by their employees’ strikes, and
are dumb, confounded, over inadequa
cy and blundering workmanship. Let
us not repine then if numbered amoug
the workers of the land, but wear our
crests proudly, awaiting the reward
which honest labor must surely bring.
Somo of the grandest spirits that the world has
ever known—mbn whose works and memory are
enduring—were regarded iu youth as dunces.—
They flowered late, hut boro the rarest fruit. It is
somew hat discouraging for a boy of moderate abil
ities, who aims to do bis ht st, to be told that others
accomplished in childhood what lie cau do ouly
by hard study in the best years of his youth. But
such a hoy should not relax his efforts. lie will

That distinguished teacher, Dr. Arnold of Rug
by, after speaking of those who zealously cultivate
inferior powers of mind, said of such a pnpii, “I
would stand to that man hat in band.” He once
spoke sharply to a duil boy, who replied; “Why do
you you speak angrily, sir 7 Indeod, I am doing
the best I can.” Dr. Arnold never so felt a re
buke in his life.
Sir Isaac Newton was a pronounced dnnee in his
early school days. TIo stood low iu his classes,
and soemed to havo no relish fo-study. One day
the “bright boy” of the school gave him a kick in
the stomach, which caused him severe pain. The
insnlt stung young Newton to the quick, and he
resolved to make himself folt and respected by im
proved schoiaiship. Ho applied himself resolute
ly to study, and, ero loug. stood in his classes
above the hoy who had kicked him, and ultimate
ly became the first scholar in the school. Nowton
owed his pre-eninsnee in his phi'osophieal studies
more to porseveranca and application than to any
marvelous natural endowment.
...Oliver Goldsmith, than whom no boy could ap
pear more stupid, was tho butt of ridicnle at
school’ A school-dame, after wonderful patiom e
and perseverance, taught him the alphabet—a
thing which she deemed creditable to her skill,
and which she livtd to mention with pride when
her pupil became famous He made no progress
in exact studies, but liked history and Latin poe
try. He was a sore trial to his ambitious mother,
who made many fruitless efforts to quicken his
wits by her sharp words. His relatives,
teachers and schoolmates all toid him that he was
a fool, which verdict he did not dispute, but took
good humoredly. Even when ho had produced
the “Traveler,” an eminent critic said to a friend,
“Sir, I do believe that Goldsmith wrotejlhat poem,
and that, let me tell you, is believing a great
Sir Walter Scott was a a dull boy, and when at
tending the University at Edinburgh, ho went by
the name of “the great blockhead.” But he wast
ed no time on trifles, and in pursuing a study that
he loved—as, for example, history or the chissics
he was persevering and methodical. He was one
of those whose knowledge on a subject that inter
ested increased until it lay like a great volume in
his mind. When Walter Scott began to make use
of that knowledge, society gave him another
There is a disease of modern civilization which
it more prevalent than is generally suspected. It
it wakefulness, inability to sleep, it is net only
a disorder of the functions of the brain, but is, in
most ins’ances, accompanied by a change in it*
ft has been found by modern investigation that
sound, natural sleep requires that a diminished
quantity of blood shall bo circulating in the blood
vessels of tho brain. When that organ is excited,
the circulation proportionally increases. The
truth of th : s st.atem.ant has been v 'rifled by obser
vation upon the brsins of persons who have hud
portions of tho skull removed in consequence of
accidents, and also by experiments upon animals
The increase in the vascular nxcitjineut is atten
ded with more or less dilatation of the Hood ves
sels, an I when this condition continues for a con
■id arable length of time it becomes more or less
permanent. If the vessels again contract to their
natural iizo they have less power than before to
resist the impulse of tbo circulation when it is
again excited. This is the condition of an over
worked brain, and it is not infrequent among the
present generation of men who are so intensely
eager in their pursuits, especially those who are in
the pursuit of wealth. The brain at last gets ab
normally excited, and retains more than a natural
quantity of blood .even after the attention oithe per
son has been taken from tho subject which
occupied it. Under snch conditions the brain can
not obtain rest. Although consciousness be lost,
the brain will continue in a more or less active
condition, as is proved by the vivid dreams which
follow excessive mental labor The dilated condi
tion of the blood vessels at l«st becomes chronic,
and it is almost impossible for the unhappy suffer
er to get enough rest to maintain the ordinary
bodily functions. In this manner are laid the
foundations for organic diseases of the brain to
which so many of our overworked, ambitious men
are constantly falling victims. The natural reme
dy for this imiiction Is rest, and the abstraction of
the mind from the sources of excitement. This is
often difficult of accomplishment, but as a goneral
rule, when no actual disorganization has taken
place, and the blood vessels have not lost their
contractile power, sueces.; will generally follow (a
faithful effort to obtain quietude, and to free the
mied from those subjects which overtaxed it.—
Important questions are related to this subject
which should receive more general attention. So
cial and business habits which shorten the time of
sleep, not only of thoso who practice them, bat of
others, are too common. One who lives in a build
ing or in a neighborhood where bo cannot escape
from constant noise night or day, aud has acquir
ed a habit of wakefulness, is robbed of a portion
of his natural rights. The question as to how far
municipal government may interfere in the regu
lation of the habits of citizens with reference to se
curing a general period of qniotude during certain
hours of the night, is a difficult one to discuss ; hut
much may be effected by tLe spread of knowledge,
and an endeavor on the part of the more thuught-
fnl.to improve our city, especially in its sanitary
arrangements.—N. Y. Sun.

Senator Schurz was born at Liedlar,
near Cologne, Prussia, and is forty-four
years of age. He and Dr. Germerf
being both students at the time, took
part in the smuggle for a republic in
1S49, and were present at the surren

and was imprisoned in the casemates.
They had not seen each other for ma

The news from Indiana assumes a
still more pleasing shape. Hendrick’s
majority is much larger than was at
first announced, and the indications are
that the election of other officers will
be contested by the Liberals. In one
township which gave a heavy Repub
lican majority, it is 6tated that neither

If this township be thrown out, nearly

that “the highest candidate on the
Grant State ticket has not received
over 13,000 majority, and that the av

Hutton, the antiquarian, whose knowledge of

Sheridan found it hard to acquire tho elements
of learning. His mother deemed it her duty to in
form his teacher that he was not bright to learn
like other boy6.
Adam Clark, was pronounced by his father to
be “a grievous dunce,” and Dr. Chalmers was
pronounced by his teacher to be an “incorrigible”
one. Chatterton was dismissed from school by his
master, who, tindiug himself unable to teach him
anything in a satisfactory manner, settled it that
the boy was “a fool.”
Teachers are apt to becouio impatient over dull
scholars, and predict of them that they will never
come to anything. Such uncalled-for prophecies
ought todiscourage no scholars that tries to do well
certain Edinburgh professor once pronounced up
on a student his severe opinion ; “Dunce you are
and dunce you will ever remain.” That student
was Sir Waiter Scott.
