from the tyranny of England, she
grew rapidly, untl her greatest danger
consisted in her departure from the
real republican form. As we have
stated, repeatedly, in the past, the
government of the United States was
a peoples' government. Monarchy
and Aristocracy were overthrown.—
Tyrants shed the blood of the people,
and under the guidance of brave men
and greut statesmen the people rose
in their might, shed the blood of
their oppressors and became the free-
est aud happiest people of the habi
table globe. Tyrants had shed the
blood of the people and they thed the
blood of the tyrants. In America the
people, triumphant in war and every
department of social life, laid the
foundation of social institutions that
rejected the gaudy titles, badges,
stars and garters, aud all the other
fopperies and gaudy insignia of roy
alty. Our rulers were elected by the
people aud selected by the people for
their supposed capacity and political
virtues, and for the sake of security
were limited in the terms of their of
ficial stations. Fortunately the sim
plicity of our government enables ev
ery citizeu to comprehend its nature
and all of its operations as clearly as
lie does the management of his house
hold affairs. No citizen cau be igno
rant of our public affairs except from
an utter disregard of passing events.
The man is guilty of a great public
crime who does not watch the pro- i
gress of events in our public economy
and political affairs, whether they re
gard the rights of the government,
federative or separate. It is the sim
plicity of tlie system that enables ev
ery citizen to know at a glance wheth
er officials are performing their duty
or individuals or states are deprived
of tlieir rights.
Great events have occurred invol
ving the rights of individuals as well
as states before our present system of
government was a hundred years old.
Our great and unnatural war Is
over, and many of our people do not
clearly comprehend the cause of it.
It is common for writers and speak
ers to say they acquiesce in the re
sults of the war without having a
clear view of the results to which
they allude. We look aud listen, in
vain, for an explicit declaration of
their views. It is very important that
these matters should be clearly under
stood and rightfully settled, for
some dangerous inferences and con
clusions may be adopted that, gener
ally accepted, might lead to results of
a serious and even dangerous charac
ter. As we would require more space
than we can readily occupy at this
writing, we look and listen for an ex
plicit declaration of their views. If
they mean that slavery was abolished
and the colored people^ were made
citizens with the right to vote at elec-
tion*!; if they mean that the secedefs
yielded to the power of the majority
and agreed to remain in the Union
and make tlie best of this compulso
ry situation, we uiay agree with them
and even go a step further and say,
it is the duty of the seceders to take
up arms and light under the old flag
for the comtilon rights cf all the
States of the Union.

Special Shoes for the retail trade,
and the price that the Bhoe is to

before the goods leave the factory.
The name of M. A. Packard & Co. is
a guarantee of quality, and the figures

for the,'goods. It is a plan which the
public has been quick to appre

goods attest. The prices of the shoes
are #5, |3.50, $2.50 and $3, and
among them can be found foot-wear

questions are of local importance and
about tlie Kingdom. Others embrace
the moral code, showing that the an
cient Egyptians had a nice sense of
right and wrong.
As Moses was brought up in that
school, and had the education of
learned Egyptians, we can see a trace
in the ten commandments iu the Egyp

the hard response "If you want to be a fool

Tho "spells" are periodical diseases, and
so groat with some, as to lead to Insanity
for tho time being. They take in all kinds
of characters and dispositions, according
to lo temperaments. Tho child born Into
the world, with alcoholic brain calls, in
herited from a father or mother who
habitually drink, and they needjnot drink
■to drunkenness—will have spells for liquor.
The stomach and brain cells are both In

Is a healthful reaction, you must look out
for some sort of out break, or meixly dis
position. Tho poor dyspeptic, who has
his turns of a weak stomach knows all
about snch feelings. With some It leads to
suicide, with others to drink, with others
to melancholy; justas tho blood effects the
different brain cells.

agony to see them suffer, but thero can be
no pain so sharp as that which comes to
the loving and faithful parents heart
when a child goes wrong. “How sharper
than a serpent’s tooth it is," I quoted soft
ly to myself, and then with another wistful
look at Stonington, which someway seemed
shorn of half Its glory, I went down to the
beach to see some new - PortugP6e men of
War, that the breakers had tossed upon the
shore. It was pleasure to think that these
creatures had no sons to turn day Into
night, and sunshine Into clouds. But who
knows? Their families may be exceedingly

To the gentlemen who read my letters,

would like to say that flannel shirts are
not only fashionable for sea shore and
mountain wear, but these garments are
now all the rage for city use. They are
certainly more economical besides looking
quite as well. At home a man can wear a
gauze flannel next to his skin-but let It be
flannel and a handsome flannel shirt over
that. White collars and cuffs are entirely
abandoned by the man about town who
knows what Is what. Tho costumes of the
men at “The Hill" are very picturesque.
There seems to bo no end to the variety in
flannel suits. The rod and black stripe,
with “Tam" to match, is however too sug-

are much worn, especially oy men with

There r re some visitors at this beautiful

aro somewhat over-dressed, a trifle coarse

pression that they have not always been

a<>, that this feminine clique had combined
their power and resources in such a way
as to mako several thousand dollars
apiece in a "bucket shop" speculation. To

Powell will so tell you, and If tho inflam
ed organ esu be cured, the person is sane
enough. But chronic insanity Is chronic
disease of some special organ—the stom
ach, the heart, the liver, the lungs, or some
lesion of a certain brain organ. Every or
gan of the body Is intimately connected
with the brain. Beliglous Insanity Is the
playing of tho blood, with unusual force,
upon the organ of spirituality or rever
ence, just as the blood plays upon the or-
8 an of combativeness in some men when
runk, anu they are full of light. The
blood cannot be controlled In Its flow, that
and nothing more, any more than you can
stop the effects of the bite of a rattlesnake.
When a man Is sober himself, naturally,
ho then can control Ills blood, and pump
it to the mental organ desired. Your wri
ter is now forcing his blood upon bis rea
soning faculties und giving his Idea of the
strange treuks, so-called which sometimes
possess men and women. A man In a fine
aud healthy physical condition is nevor
given to “freaks or follies" of nny kind.
It Is only your diseased persons who do
such things. I have talked with men who

Tlioir systems were out of order, aud as
one told me, that medicine did him no
good, aud that after a “spree” of about a
week throwing off bile, etc., he felt like a
new man, and would not touch liquor for
perhaps a year, or until surlng time, the
usual time for a change In Ins system. He
understood his disease and knew what to
do. His family understood his disease
aud know what to do for him. With some
men, “sprees” are once a year or twice or
quarterly, according to their physical con
ditton and temperament.
"Man Is fearfully aud wonderfully
made,” and no mistake, “and the study of
mankind Is man." What we sometimes
call faults, frailties and fancies, are the
outward signs of a diseased nature, for
which one is more to be pitied than con
demned. Wo have “spasms" of religious
feeling, of benevolence, of sociability, of
charity and all tho virtues; and then wo
hear the expression so slgntflpaut,—“the
devil has got into him.” When one can
account for his dreams, ho may account
for many of his actions. Do not confound
habits with constitutional tendencies.
