These are the pathetic last words of Uie Wor-cester Daily Prtu: "We hope the fellow who sent us a postal card witli 'stop my paper' writ-ten upon it will be satisfied this morning. t e study to please."

If there was really no fraud in Florida and Louisiana, Mr. Potter's committee won't find any, and Hayes will be vindicated. Staff yi'l'-r. No fraud! Why, thunder, they've proved it! Patience indeed ! A Deadwood paper mentions the shooting of Chris. Hotl'iiian, a saloon keeper of that city, say-ing he "was shot twice in the abdomen, and once in the barber shop adjacent." They tell of an amateur sportsman in Dayton, Ohio, w ho, having heard that there was an unusual abundance of mushrooms in the woods, borrowed a dog and took his gun and started to kill some. A West Farms (X. H.) fisherman last week caught twenty-seven trout sumo of them, he says, weighing orer two pound apiece. Hi" would have caught more; but he is not a very good liar That's a pretty good story of the Morris ml" jvwltut about catching a woodchuek over on the Mazon, but what's the use of putting one's ere-dulity to such a strain by making a dog climb a tree? We are glnd to learn, even at this late day, that Thomas Jell'erson would turn aside rather than step on a bumblebee. He was barefooted when he felt that way, of course.

For un hour before the "Suevia" left the pier at New York her broad deck and splen did main saloon were filled with the hundreds that had come to see their friends and relatives off. There were congratulations and tender partings, laughter and tears. At 4 v. M. the whistle Mew the signal for departure, and those" who wished to remain in the western hemisphere went ashore. The immense steam- er began to move, almost imperceptibly at first, but with increasing speed at every turn of the screw, and wo left the w harf amid accla mations, waving handkerchiefs and a shower of bouquets and oranges. For two davs the weather was delightful. The ancient amateur mariners, of whom we hail many on board those who had crossed six or ten times said they had never seen anything like it. Rut the next evening we were in the gulf stream. While we were at dinner the whistle blew the signal for down brakes, and those who had traveled much on southern railroads thought for an instant that n cow was on tin- unvh ; out too hut 1, ,u.i ner said "fog." When we went on deck we saw the fog, and forrfwo days we saw nothing else. The fog whistle blew incessantly; the deck was wet and disagreeable; the sea of un oily, inky color, and only two degrees of the freezing point. We were oil' the banks of Newfoundland. On the second evening a breeze sprung up and lifted tho fog. The sea wa.s rolling, and the ancient mariner said we were passing through the vestiges of an old storm. Rcforc morning the old storm was reinforced by a young one. We had anticipated something of tho kind, for the sailors had been going about quietly lashing chair t i the deck and securing things generally; the steward bad also fixed a walnut frame to the table, which divided it into small fenced sections that afterwards proved a curb to the dishes in their eccentric antics, as the vessel was tossed like an eggshell by the waves. The fine weather of the first two days had spoiled the passengers of the "Suevia;" the fog put them out of humor; and the storm made them sick. Seasickness is a most mcl-aiicholy condition of the human Momach a visceral insurrection, fur which no allaying specific lias been found. lis premonitory synip. toins are disgust of food, yellow complexion, and a woebegone visage; and these are fol-lowed by vile and violent eructations, without respect to age, sex, condition cr refined society. Rut the recovery from seasickness, as the convalescent catches fjliuinscs of new hoi i- zons of health and physical validity, is delicious. Like Colonel Sellers, the Hamburg line never economizes on its nourishment, and fresh strawberries, asparagus, green peas cv. erytbing thut the market of New York or the vintages of F.uroc aH'ord, reeled on the restless table, or was sent to the cabin of every passenger that imagined himself indisposed. No dainty that the seasick soul conceived was tin- stew ard unable to furnish. Rusk in says that a ship should never be painted majestic and dellant, but only us warlike and enduring; and no one can have been at sea in a storm without realizing the truth ot his ih'rt'ii,, and feeling 1 ow entirely at the mer cy of the waves is even the U-st of ships. For sixty hours the "Suevia" struggled with the tremendous energy of flu! sea, ami when she came into jort the top of her smoke slack, twenty feet alsive her de k, was white front the salt with which the vaulting, snowy crest, cd waves had wreathed it. Imagine an iiu-uieiisc ship ascending cubic acres of cone-s1iii;msI, unstable wave; she reaches the apes, begins to descend, mid pilches stein foremost to the base, w ith terrific splash and splurge; a tremor like a shudder passes through her en-tire hulk, but she docs not creak as though she would so to pieces; there is too much endurance of iron, steel and oak in lier for complaint. She simply renews the engagement every mini te for three days, until the moid timid woman has faith that the ship is war like and enduring able to hold her own against Uie majestic and demoniacal ocean. C. A. S. In some jiortlonsoi wccaen there has been a powerful religious revival, which liegan in efforts to promote temperance. The ltaptist, Methodist and Lutheraa churches co-operate in the work ; the paatorh of ail working unitedly. SvuHtig Mugatiiu. WHEN I WOULD DIE. I would not die in spring time, And miss the turnip green, And the purty songs of the litUe frogs, And the robin's early scream. When birds begin u wooing And 'tatcrB gin to sprout, When turkeys go a gobbling, I would nut tlicu peg out. I would not die in summer, And leave the garden gass, The roasted lumb and buttermilk. Sweet clover and new grass. I would not die hi summer, When everything is hot, And leave the whisky juleps, O, no! I'd rather not. I would not die In autumn, With peaches fit for eating, When wavy corn is getting ripe, And candidates are treating. For these and other reasons I would not die in fall; And since I've thought it over, I would not die at all. A Iluily-Siintrliloir Horror. A week ngoC'inrlnnuti was intensely excited over h body. snatching horror, of which u dispatch of May UOtli gives the following account: John Scott Harrison, a son of ex-President Harrison, died suddenly some time Saturday night, his body being found Sunday morning, II :..u.. .1..,.. ,.l l,.i,l ll..,.,.l'..r 111! was millillljr uimuu, uini nm, died while preparing for bed, or had risen ear Iv und expired belotv lie tinislieu dressing the funeral took place in the Presbyterian Church utClevt-s yesterday, and the body was interred in Congress Green Cemetery, within few yards: of the tomb of President Harrison, j sixth We favor Hie equal recognition of When preparing the grave it was ascertained gold, silver, and I'nitcd Slates notes in thedis-that the body of Horace Dcvins, buried ten:c,.irg(. of public and private obligations, ex-days ago, had been stolen.

It was accordingly walled ii heavily, the body placed in a metallic casket ami a sione wnicn required six men na ns handling placed over it. In addition a guard was employed to watch the grave for thirty days, l'he funeral over, Carter Harrison, son of the deceased, and Geo. Faton, a grandson, came to the city to search for the boily of their friend Dcvins. They were not prepared with the proper search warrants till this afternoon, when, in company with Kx-Chief of Police Snell Raker, they visited the medical college. In the dissecting room a rope leading to a chute seemed tight, and drawing it up it body with the face covered was found attached- After examining it a moment, Carter Harrison said, "That is not he; my friend was wasted with consumption, while this is a stout man." The body was entirely nude, save the covering of the face. Snell Raker suggested that Harrison should taken good look, am the cloth licing removed, he was seen to trein-' JiIj tinil turn iim1i nu lir t vrl:imw 1 "Afv CikI! its father!"

The : a solemn resolution of one branch ot congress, doctors could make no explanation, in fact had; and it will be unfortunate it this letter of the nothing to say regarding the matter, und now, postmaster-general shall become such a precc-stotitly refuse to talk. The presumption is that dent. It is not the province of cabinet ollicers the suddenness of the death excited their in- to assail the action of congress, or the action tercst, and they determined to secure the body of either house; of congress.

His once f-nmn in. and at the depot met th"'' wh in advance had made the discovery. 1 he stone on the grave had been pulled aside, the grave opened, the glass in the top ol the casket broken and the body pulled rudely out. The man employed to guard the grave has not I n seen since the discovery, although every effort has been made to ascertain his where abouts. Opinion is divided as to whi ther he was a party to the crime, or, after neglecting his duty and learning the result, lied from fear of being arrested for complicity in it. The body will at once be taken back and reinterred with precautions still greater than ever. Mr. Carter Harrison is almost prostrate from the nervous shock caused by a scries of severe or deals through which he has just passed. Hi ts n married man and has several children, all of whom reside in the Harrison Homestead a farm given the late John Scott Harrison by his father, President Harrison. It is located about live miles from the historical Harrison farm at North Rend, where the deceased members of the Harrison family are buried, and where the lsidy of the last survivor of the immediate family of William Henry Harrison was laid yesterday for so short a rest. John Scott Harrison was seventy-four years of age; he was twice married, and both his wives repose within a few feet of the place prepared fur him. General Ren Harrison, of liulian:i, who was hist year defeated for Governor of that State by Illuo Jeans Williams, was a son of John Scott Harrison by his first wife. I-li;li'.

Second The tlnancial system of the Republican tiartv has been one o'f foster to moneyed monopolies, of unequal taxation, that lias destroyed every enterprise that gave employment to labor; therefore we denounce it, its measures, and its men, as responsible for the financial distress, misery, and want which now af- 1 tlict the nation Third Labor and capital have an equal demand unon the iirotcction of and aneoual re- Lj sibility before the law.

Seventh It is the duty of the Government to take immediate steps to improve our great Western rivers, and the means provided should be commensurate with the importance and magnitude of the work. Eighth A thorough investigation into the election frauds should be made. Frauds should be exposed, truth vindicated, and criminals punished in accordance with the law whenever found. We accept, and reaffirm the doctrines of Mr. Tilden's letter upon war claims as a proper adjustment of national policy upon that Class oi claims upon i in: jhioiii; iieusiuj An lll-.ilvlsecl Letter, Postmaster-General Key's open letter to the Southern people on the subject of the electoral investigation is an extraordinary allair. It is, perhaps, utterly unjustifiable besides. -We do not recall a precedent lor the action of a cabi- letter asserts that " it both houses ol the forty sixth ooiitfi-ui aro I luuiocratic. the minority intend to oust President Hayes and inaugurate Mr. Tiklcn." If this startling assertion were true, we might pardon even a cabinet minister forgoing out of ins way to make it. If the Forty-sixth congress of tile United States is to enact a revolution by turningoutone president and putting in another, the fact ought to be made known to the people. Rut how does the postmaster-general know what the next congress will do? Whence does he derive the prescience that authorizes him to predict the acts of an unborn legislative body, and impute revolutionary designs to unelectcd senators and representatives? Probably it would be ui-cr not to have this electoral investigation. Wc are not hopeful that any good will come of it, and we fear that some harm may come of it. Rut the house of represcntatives has deliberately resolved on it, and it is not the business of any member of the cabinet to take exceptions to that action. We do not believe the house intends this investigation as the postmaster-general unwarrantably asserts. The house is a better interpreter of its designs than Judge Key, and there is nothing in its resolution that authorizes such an inference. Mr. Poller of New York, author of the resolution and chairman of the committee appointed under it. emphatically disavows the design of ousting Mr. 1 1 ayes, and it is very certain ihat the people would not countenance a violent and revolutionary annulment of Mr. Hayes' litle, even if it were worse than il is suspected to be. In short, Postmaster-General Key's letter is a most ill-advised and uncalled-for paper, which, like the house resolution, w ill do more harm than good. Then; is enough passion involved in this business already, w ithout the additional contribution which the er.if.ntous imputation in this letter brings. We fear the letter is the result of a grave uneasiness in tin- administration, rather than the voluntary and deliberate product ot Judge Key's good seuse.
