A liuly ubtiood n boy sprinkling suit on the sidewalk to tiiko oil' tho iuo, nnd remarked to a friend, pointing to tho will: "JCo\v, that's benevolence." "No, it nin't t "snid tlio boy, somowlmt indignant, "it's snlt." So when u liuly asked her soi'vunt- girl ii' Iho hired man cleaned oil' tho snow w i t h alacrity,she replied: '·No, inn'iim, he used ti shovel." The Mime literal t u r n of itiincl which wo htxvo been illustrating is sometimes' used intentionally, and perhaps n little maliciously, and thus becomes tho prop- crty of wit instead of b l u n d e r s . Thus wo hear ol'u very polite and impressive g e n t l e m a n , who said to a y o u t h ' i n tho street: · , "Boy, may I inquire where Robinson's ilnig-storo is'(" ·'Oerlitinly, sir,'' replied tho boy, very respect fully. "Well, sir." said tho gentleman, after waiting awliilo, "ivheru is it?" "I Inivo not the least icloa,' said tho urchin. There was inothcr boy who was accosted by au ascetic, middlo-agcd lady w i t h ; "lioy, I want to e;o lo Dover Street." "Well, ma'am, why don't vou g(), then?" One day, at Liiko George, a parly of gunlluinoii s t r o l l i n g among the beiuiti- l u l iblands of the lake, w i t h bad luck, esiiicul a l i t t l e follow with a red shirt and blruw hat, dangling a l i n e over tho uide of the bout. . ilnllo, boy," said one of thorn, ''what are you doing?" "Fishing," came the answer. "Well, of course," said tho ganllo- man, "but what do you catch ?" "b'ih you fool, what do yon b'posc ?" "Did n n y ofyou ever sou an elephant's skin? 1 ' inquired a teacher of an i n f a n t class. "1 have," exclaimed one. "Where ?" asked the tettcher. "On (lie elephant,"said tho'boy, laughing. Sometimes this sort of wit degenerates or rises, as th'o case may be, i n t o p u n n i n g , as when Flora pointed pensively to the heavy masses of clouds in the sky, saying: "1 wonder where those clouds aro going?" and her brother replied: "1 t h i n k they aro going to thunder." Also the following dialogue: "Hallo, there! how do you sell your wood? "By the cord." "How long lias U been cut?" "Four feet." "Imean how long has it been since you cut it ?" "No longer than it is now." And also, when Patrick O'Flynn was seen with his collar and his bobom sadly bogrimmed, and was indignantly asked by iiis officer: "Patrick O'Flynn, how long do you wear a shirt?" ' "Twenty-eight inches, sir." This rominds.mo of an instance which is said to have occurred recently in Chatham Street, New York, where a countryman was clamorously besieged by a shopkeeper: "Ilnvo you any flue shirts?" said the countryman. "A splendid assortment. Step in, sir. Every price and ovcry style. The chenp«st.in tho market, sir." ''Are they clean?'' "To bo sure, sir." "Then," said tho countryman, with great gravity! you had better put on otic, fo"r you "need it." About Flics. The naturalist recognizes many h u n - dred kinds of llios.tn this c o u n t r y ; but in our lionschold ecqnomy wo'rcducp them:-rnninly to* three r sorts--housing flics, bitiiigfilics, and blue bottlo or bio' Hit's. Tho latter is readily diolliignish- ed; tho two formcr'aro frequently confounded, although easily k n o w n apart by Iho naturalist or aouto observer.-They may, however, always be identi- fied'nt a glnneo, by the position they assume on the wall. A common house lly almost invaribly rests with his head downward, and however it may light, works its way round 'until this direction is assumed. The biting Hies, on the contrary, as universally rest w i t h the head pointing upward, noting in this respect precisely like the equally blood-thirsty mo«quito. The b r o t h e r of an eminent Kussian entomologist, now residing in the United States, observed a peasant in his own c o u n t r y , killing some of the Hies on a wall of his hut ^without disturbing others; and, on being questioned, ho gave us a reason that those with their heads up wore "biters," and the others wore not. A careful examination of those facts by tho enlomoloL'ist himself proved the accuracy of tho generalization tlius made b'y an ignorant but observant man. «»-»-o- · Two Irishmen worp traveling, when they slopped to examineag.uido-board '·Twelve miles to Portland,." said one "Just six mi^cs apioco," said tho other And they trudged on apparently satis tied at the small distance.

Our lands, l y i n g in almost all latitudes, are looming w i t h p r o d u c t s ; our forests furbish plenty oJ timber for all branches of nrrliiieolimil i n d u s t r y ; our hills and m o u n t a i n s arc ribbed w i t h precious ores, to supply oven the treasuries of tho world; our sens and rivers are nllvo with inexhaustible sources of food; our commercial exchanges aro nmdo in all parts of Iho globo; our p u b l i c institutions for the proteclion and elevation of masses, surpass any in hiimnn history; our i n v e n - tive arts are harnessing up all the moLoi agents to be m i n i s t r a n l s of use. By j i r t h r i u h t wo are tho richest iiiilion that blossoms in tho gardens of politics. U n d e r such exuberance of natural blessings, wo should have, no poor among us, no oppression, no haggard miseries, wherever waves tho American ilag. Where I ho means of domestic and social happiness aro tit our command, where tho people have tho power in their own hands, thoro should bo a great uid cxactjuslicc. If we tail hure,o!iher ivo lack in wisdom and blrongih to cn- 'orco our rights, or elso are i n d i f f e r e n t to t h e m , What are tho facts? N o t w i t h s t a n d i n g ho great wealth all a r o u n d , above and jonoiilh us, we are to-day, as a whole, n a distressing financial .depression ; comparatively little currency if, in the n a r k o t ; t h e market d u l l ; IhomorcluniR complaining for want of paying palron- igo 1 ; the farmers complaining at the low )rice» 'they get Jor their produce; the nochanics complaining of low wages md hardships ; in short, all llio yeoman- ·y aro struggling and calculating what hoy blitill do to pay taxes and oilier lebts. Tho. majority are almost dis- icurtcnod in spirit, in t h a t our e.xpcii- Miccs indicate for the future, u n d e r jresont management, no better success han the past, has realized. In our large :ilics, thousands aro obliged to beg or teal for a living. How wp all toil! L'hrce-quartcrs of our energies aro cx- jended in procuring the necessaries of ifo. Wo tax soul, and body, and spirit; 0 got a littlo portion of the vast wealth lied has bestowed in ocean,airand r-arlh. lonest men, unable to cope with incor- joratod capital, morally refusing to barer principle, arc oltcn denounced as lislionosl, because they cannot always neot I l i e i r money obligations. The vidowcd and orphaned ply the needle, mini) 1 t'.'ying to compete w i t h the sew- rig uiacliino, and often sink into insani- y, i n d u c e d by homo distresses, The )'oor country girl, m i s t a k i n g the sniieri- r advantages of oily lilt', or else cn- rappod by (also promises, is hurled i n t o loverly to whet the edge ot t e m p t a t i o n , ind co'mpellcd to soil her v i r t u e , that ho may iivo and not die, and lashionn- )lo society crushes her yut lower. In ho general depression and digress, hu- unii passions boil, and ferment., and nndden, t i l l high crimes break out on every side, us cancerous sorrs on the jody politic. Thero is sull'cring im- nea'turablo in all tho l a n d ; Millering vhero p l e n t y is; suH'ering in m i l l i o n s of tomes, in millions of hearts. W h i l s t all this is sadly t r u e of tho lower, classes,'' falsely so called, the argC'dorporalions of money, girded by ho sinows of special legislation, are l o u r i s h i n g i n nlHncnco, and glorying n their strength to rule the market, the nduslry, the wealth! tho church, the overnment. As in tho old monarchies Kuropc, it is not uncommon, these lays, to sec tho poor man's runted cot- nge near the rich man's palace, or the spired edifice dedicated to llio worship of an equal and impartial Deity. The ·ich arc becoming richer; Ihu poor aro Becoming poorer. ' C i p i t a l is conceit- rating, bettor to protect itself in I h o n n - mnconicut of i n d i v i d u a l wealth, w h i l e ,ho millions outside, o w n i n g not a dol- ar of that capital, are compelled, by 'orco of circumstances which those cor- lorations have created, to servo or por- sh.

Nationally, socially, wo arc f a s t d r i l t - ng i n t o n moniod aristocracy--the next 'orm of slavery to light against onAmer- cau soil. Jt is no idlo dreaming of prophecy to say that the country ·nill yet become, ike the city, owned by a few capitalists, inlcss tho'ir aggrandizing policy is speedily checked by the people. In ?hilndol|ihia--and similar ratios exist n other cities--ono per cent, of the pop- .ilation own one-hall of Hie real estate ind personal property of tho city, while tho other hall is distributed to the n i n e - ;y-uino. Thus, wl:ilo one man does lothing but connive irid receive, n i n e t y - :iino men do all tho work. Arc wo not sleeping on a Vesuvius? Our banking system is a great anaconda. The national banks, by v i r t u e of class legislation and tho'prestige of custom, aro (f oiling from fifteen to t.wen- ,y por cent.'on their capital. Wo pay them Ibis interest for currency Hint is issued by tho G o v e r n m e n t . W h a t ' i n iieavcn's name is such n system tolerated 'or? The 1 ! ssn ing of bonds'by tho Government i'» the timo'of Iho late war, nnd selling them to incorporated bank'com- )tuiics for funds ttr'carry it on,'may ,'javo been, and doubtless was, a necessity' t h e n ; but' tho'necessities of \yttr should not bo'transmitted, to i m p e r i l a eoplo financially-ill a lime of peace. By 1 special 'act, tho banks aro legally exempt from tlio taxation which the patronizing people have to pay. W l m t n r o t/iei/ doing-to pay tho national dctil? Suppose whal "wo pay to tho banks for .onus of money to transact buisnesb, should liquidate' said debt, ho\y speedily would we accomplish our patriotic task I If we must pay lute-rest for national currency, in tho name of jnslico let it bo paid'where Ibo Government, pledged to protect us in turn, shall receive tho benefits,' , But interest for the use of money is a burden, a nuisance and a .usurpation. Whon 'our lives and property are holtlcn to support Government, national currency should bo w i t h o u t interest, direct or indirect. So far from paying interest, Government should' institute a se verc peualty'for the man or men who forco it from us. Wha). natural or dol- o«-nted right has a body of men' tu control the national currency? Have tho people so voted?
