THE EVENING GAZETTE: FATITTUbVV, JANUARY 28 1838. Evening Gazette. B H 8 ! . rt«. I Per Year.... Illcn BY CABT.7B1*. THE OLTJM and momse man wonders why he has not more friends; but no one else does. The sunny tempered fellow is sought as men seek the warm beams of the sun in winter. As man is repelled by shadows and the cloud and the gloom of night, so he avoids the fellow who is aonr, morose, gloomy and glum. Such a roan usually has a grievance; his utterances are in harmony with his thoughts and his appearance. Now, every individual haa his own ' grievances and when he gets out of himself he don't wish to saddle upon himself somebody else's woes; hence, he STOids those who will darken the atmosphere by utterances that are gloomy as the. prophecies of Cassandra. THE PRESENT French administration Isn't partial to the Panama canal — scheme, and DeLessepa is refused that gigantic lottery scheme by which he hoped to realize a few millions with which to further prosecute that enterprise whose complete construction would cost more money than the pyramid of Cheops, the cathedral of Milan, St. Peter or any other single enterprise ever undertaken by man. The cathedral of Milan has cost probably «300,000,000; Su Peter's aa 'much' more; the Great Pyramid say $400,000,000; but although 8200,000,000 have been exhausted upon the Panama, scarcely one-fourth of the work is yet done. It ia probable that it will demand a thousand million to perfect it. De- Lesseps, although eighty years old, hopes to live to complete it, and will not be downdashed by opposition. THE ECLIPSE of tonight suggesU that we remind our readers who love the stars that if they have a good strong pair of opera glasses, or a good field glass, they will be surprised to liud out how much added beauty will be revealed by either of these instruments. It is a too common impression that a telescope is needed to discover added stars in the great firmament above. With either of the instruments named, however, one may direct his gaze towards; say Orion, or Pleiades, and he will be astonished to see star after star opening up to his gaze, which before time he never saw,— twins, triplets, a ~Or~he may nebula liere audthere, <fcc. turn the glass upon mighty Jupiter and catch a glimpse of some one of his moons, or draw out the magic, belts that girdle Jove's sire, the exquisite JSaturn. .More youthful astronomers may not know that not the mightiest telescope can bring the star-suns out of their points, as lesser instruments do the planets, so great is the distance of these luminaries; aud hence not even a great observatory can begin to iind out the wonders of the starry heavens; but one who really seeks knowledge can get much satisfaction in the manner we have stated. Ilia best plan Is to Ox certain of the constellations, that he may not run one Into another; as, say, let him set the bounds of Ursa Major, or Ursa Minor, or Casseiopea, or Aldebaran, or any other of the familiar constellations, and also the alphabetical names of the stars (the stars of each constellation except Orion and one or two others each are characterized by a letter of the Greek alphabet); this being done and the naked eye familiarized to the stars as they appear to the unaided eye, then let the glass or glasses be applied, and one by one there will show in space that before was empty, other stars that belong to the particular group being investigated. Our atmosphere being so frequently clear, favors studies of the star-depths. Job lived before Moses, yet he loved the stars, as did the pastoral people of Judea afterward (shown in the writings of David, a shepherd and the son of a shepherd), and the Bible speaks poetically and eloquently of the hosts that diadem the infinite space, when the lowered sun permits the uplifting of the curtain that by day hides their splendors from the gaze of man. Earth is small; man's eye turned in every direction is limited by the horizon thatstretches leas than two-score miles away; so, too, earth's history is brief, ana man sighs as he reflects that it was but yesterday when hia place was not found upon it; but looking upward, the eye travels miles so infinite that the brain reels in effort to compute them. Sirius is 200,000 times as far away as our own sun; yet It would take a railroad train making 000 miles a day about 420 years to reach it, but there are stars Infinitely farther from Sirius than is Birius from our sun. So, man, the finite, and long- Ing inexpressibly after the infinite, learns the lesson of eternity and promise of immortality in the star-depths, aa be can never learn it from the planet- earth, where all is suggestive of the perishing. The learned Dr. Dick insisted that it was not possible to be an aatromoner without having supreme faith in Him who hung the stars in their places and set them in their eternal motion; but while since he wrote there are many men who while revel- lug in the glorious beauty of the heavens refuse to recognize the hand divine that seta in motion the worlds of infinite space, still, we repeat, as said the Psalmist thirty odd centuries ago, .The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament ohoweth Ills handiwork and lite the patient and afflicted Job, it astonishes us that any can "resist Uia influence*" of the constellations, as that they should attempt to unbind the bands of Orion. 80 ends the Saturday lOMOQ. I'D BATHER be President than be right," i» the modern paraphrase of OUy^a famous declaration. To he Pnw- ld*at is to be fint *raoof 'em all, and to too fr«at * totuptftttou to b» restated PARTY I'I.ATKOUMS nil call for party purity and insist that RtTirirs of government shall be managnd in the same spirit of economy and honesty that mark tha conduct of just and upright men in private life. It is but just to our age to say that, thanks to an ever- vigilant press and an educated popular sense, it is now impossible that public officials should be guilty of corruption. The truth of this we can demonstrate in a few words. In 18H4, from Maine to Florida and from the Atlantic to the Pacific, Democratic speakers said, ';Vote for Cleveland; we want to turn the rascals out and get at the books. Thus far we have not been nble to show how rascally corrupt the JRopublicans are because we could not get hold of the reins of government and direct a systematic overhauling of accounts." Republican speakers and editors replied: "Why, the Democrats got control of the House in 1875—nine years ago, and every year since they have been Investigating every department of government, and have not been able to unearth a single discreditable act." Well, it is now three years since Mr. Cleveland was inaugurated and not a single case of dishonesty under Republican rule has been brought to light,— not one. And, why '( The reason was given above: the ubiquitous and ever- vigilant newspapers are oh the alert for rascality and will expose it. So officeholders dare not steal.. Besides: parties political have been on good beha- viour many years, and would not appoint dishonest men to ofllce. And, again; the people will not submit to official dishonesty. No nation upon earth can show such entire honesty as this republic among officials of all kinds. But, while honesty abounds in high places, what we have to complain of is that politicians are not honest and political parties are'not honest. While there has been a gradual development of official Improvement in morals, par. ties have got worse, if possible, than ever, in the matter of conducting party affairs. "All is fair in politics." Men thoroughly honest in private and public life, will either consent to take part in, or work at, the most despicable methods in bringing about party nominations or in conducting party campaigns, or in massing together votes. The only.ex- cuse offered by party managers for the rascality practiced, is that "the othev side does it, and we must fight the devil with fire." Such argument is -that—of—criminal g—an<l—evil—doers-the world over. We have the spectacle all the nation over in the country places of two or three in a township getting together and choosing delegates to a county convention, in the city of crowding in everybody and of voting everybody who will vote and as often as they will vote at primaries; in county and State conventions the most rascally dodges are resorted to to overcome popular expression and choice. And to hide this consumate scoundrel- Ism, the conventions thus reeking with the rottenness of trickery, lying, knavery, poltroonery and demagogism, adopt the most virtuous resolution. In short, the people are all right and the politicians are all wrong. These knayes who nominate candidates for us and who give US' platforms are a score of years behind the age, and the first thing they know there will be a grand popular uprising, which will relegate them to that privacy in disgrace which their misdeeds merit, and the people will do the nominating and the making of platforms. God speed that day! When it comes, we shall see that honesty in politics that we now have in tne management of government, and we shall not have it until the people do take hold and drive this pack of hungry unscrupulous cormorants away from the headquarters of politics. * —"Haydee" is respectfully declined. It may be a poem, but if it in, it ia such a departure from what is ordinarily termed poetry that we are afraid to attempt to palm it off on our readers as such. —Mr. Timothy Haley desires ug to state that he was not arrested or put in the lock-up, and that Egan and Thompson had nothing to do with the taking of the horse from Stitzel; that ha did this alone. He adds that he never was in the lock-up and don't expect to be. —Our farmer friends owning lands subject to overflow will, we trust, all of them show spirit of entire fairness. All of them are interested in the growth of Sterling; its increase in population means increase in value of their lands. —It is claimed pn the outside that Lee county is suffering f romlDement ia. It is also whispered that the Secretary of State boarded a'Barge and ran it aground when he aided in postponing the judicial .election. Of course this may be only a say-so. Dixonpliwt night attracted quite a number of our young people, who in the light of the nearly full moon enjoyed their 12-mile over and 12-mile drive back fully as much as they did the following the intricate mazes of the festive dance. •—The Sunday school entertainment including oyster supper at Empire last night attracted quite a number of our. people, among them the Fourth street Methodist and Lutheran choirs and the Second Ward school quartette, who took part in the entertainment. It was a very creditable affair, inneed. —It ia of no avail, probably, to say that "catching on to bob-sleds" la dangerous, for boys will do it anyway; yet the fact is fact, that it is exceedingly dangerous. The reaaon that no more are injured is explained probably l>y thd French .'in their proverb, 'There ia a special God to look out for children." —"Young Politician" ia informed that the people do not vote for President and Vice President direct, but for electors, who do the voting for the people. The tearing off of the names of President and Vice President from the tisket and leaving the electors' names on would not affect the value of the ballot; it would be as good as though the two names were left on. TUB NIGHT hour Is not all given to rest; nor should all that portion not given to rest be devoted to pleasure. In our country, it is the few only ot men, who, after manhood can give any portion of the day to mental improvement. If they do not read or study at night their minds go unimproved. Nineteen in twenty of our successful public men owe theu 1 success in life* to "doubling up" their time; that is to say, they worked at their regular business through the day, and at night stole an hour or two away from cumbering care aud applied it to the upbuilding of their mental character. "A good book is the best friend; the same to-day and forever," is a .Latin maxim which we have freely translated." It Is worth cherishing. . Thrw sno .T-shove!<«r« irero killed Friday near Holyokn.

But, of course, it is for purpose named elsewhere, viz, for the double track and depot building. - —The new ordinance in relation to sleigh-bells goes into effect to-morrow. It will be enforced: it is for the safety and protection of all, as any one can plainly understand. Steamboats and locomotives are required to signal their approach; wagons, buggies and carts do so by the clatter of wheels; cutters and sleighs making no noise, it is needful to safety that they have bells, and the Council acted'wisely in. compelling it.

Hie you, O reader, to the "boulevard" (French you know) in the afternoon or evening, and see how the cutters fly along, drawn by foamy steeds, which champ their bits and toss their heads defiantly as they race along, apparently enjoying the pastime as much as their drivers, each of whom knows he has a horse that can distance anything around. . Lest we be accused of partiality we refrain from naming the favorites; all we care to say Is, go upon the boulevard, and see for yourselves bow the noble animal^ man's friend, and the great need of our civilization is being developed. The buulevard is a quiet street ordinarily, being upon the suburbs and "sleighing'' folks are there privileged to speed their horses to the top knot. Many are profiting by the privilege.

Dare took Tom Consadine along Upon their roturn in the« evening they caught up. with Enright, Egan and Thompson, who were walking into town. The atory goes that thii trio forcibly spilled Dave upon the ground and that Dave snatched up as be went out a blanket and a robe, wrapping which majestically about his person, that the chill winds might not mar his body, he stalked into town and to Hause's stable, there saying' that the team had got away with him and that the blanket and robe were all he bad left. Ilause jumped into a cutter and drove out towards Grogan's and finally came up with the quartette. The cutter containing them spilled out the four into a big snew-bank; they were so blissfully happy, stimulated, previously by the "salmon" or something else they had eaten or drank, that they with great- eat unconcern saw Hauae depart with hi* extra cutter, leaving them to tramp it into the city.
