is an able writer and has had considerable experience- in publio lifo, while his son, we are informed, is an accomplished scholar, has just finished his education in Europe. The two will certainly (on-duct the Southwest in a creditable manner." From the lola Regular: "The Southwest, Col. Sniith's new pnper, made its appearance last week. It is an eight column sheet and a very great improvement on tho Statesman in every respect. Politically it is Liberal Itepub-licun, and of course, supports Grot-ley and Brown.

Col. Smith is a live man, and will make a live, readable paper." From Rounds' Printers' Cabinet, of Price Raid Scrip. 'White wo have heard many inquiries in relation to tho value of this scrip and en it would bo paid. It will be noticed by the telegrams from Washington that tl bill which some time ago passed the H. use, lias passed the Senate, which provide" fur the payment by the general gov to Kansas of the expenses of tin militia called out by the Gavjrnor to del.

nd our State against the invasion of Pri who ho successfully marched though the State of Missouri in the spring of 18(55. The militiamen and thou who furnished supplies to them oiitht to havo been paid long ago. If thf- State of Kansas had been under the tv jiti ol of honest statesmen instead of a su( of gamblera speculators, these poiir men would have had their pay im-rne 'ititely after their discharge. Because th. neral government had not agreed ckmhoi No man is bo insignificant as to be sure his example can do no hurt.

If you would liaVe a faithful servant, ahd ono that you likt) serve yoursclfi Whut men want of reason for their opinions they usually supply and make up in rage. Fidelity, good-huinor, and complacency of temper, outlive all the charms of a fine face, and muke ito decay invisable. Above till other features which adorn the female character, delicacy stands foremost within the province of good taste. Those ore the best husbands and fathers who prove their devotion by actions which continue to bless even after One of the greatest evils of the world is that men praise, rather than practice, virtue. The praiso of honest industry 5s on every tongue, but it is rare that the worker is respected more than tho 1KIN.

For the SoiTiiWEflT. HI'A'lltK BY I. Child of early life and love, in whose deep eyes Lovo that dreams no end of lifo, and life that dies Soem to shine from other worlds, from brighter spheres, Soem to look with high oontont upon the years, Coming some strange starry way through gates of birth, Not from out the void which gives and takes all earth; Is it love I feel for thoe or Is it more, Seeing that the sweet and deathless we adore? II. Bright blond head of girlish hair, Low sweet voice that thrilled through mine, White soft body over-fair, Lips that love could scarce resign, Laughter too, and tears that came with shade and shine: Those were once my golden love, Only love and sole delight; These my heart Bet far above Pomp of place or pride of might, Years of rest or endless sleep with visions bright. EXCERPT A.

We have vanity enough and what editor who takes sufficient pride in his work to stimulate him to an effort to do it well, has not to feel flattered by the complimentary notices of our cotempo-raries, and therefore from the many clever things said of ourselves and The Southwest, we have excerpted the following passages: From the Topcka Commonwealth: "We have received the initial number of Col. Smith's new paper, the Humboldt Southwest. It looks well and reads well all except the Greeley part of it. Col. Smith is a newspaper man of large experience, and we are glad that he has got into the harness again, even if he is a little wayward in his politics." From the Leavenworth Commercial: "We have received the first number of a new paper called the Southwest, pub lished at Humboldt, by P.

Smith. It is a fine looking eight column sheet, and comes out on the broad Liberal platform in support of Greeley and Brown. We wish it unbounded success." From the Atchison Patriot: "We have received the first number of the Southwest, a Greeley and Brown tTfui)ib(idt, future sustains the promise of its first number it will be one of the best week-. lii.ii 'in tbu Ktto From the Lawrence Journal: "The Southwest dispalys in its ini tial number the marks of the supervis. ion of an old hand at the business.

We were about to say something abusive about the but on looking farther we lound that the real head had not been put on' yet, and the head pro tern, was improvised from the iob room. The Southwest is an eight column paper, looks nicely, has lots of reading matter. is lor Urceley and Urown, is a year in advance, and will be a valuable addition to Kansas From the Lawrence Tribune: "The Southwest, a new paper which swings the Greeley colors, comes to us trom Humboldt, edited by Col. Ct. r.

Smith. Well, even Greeley can't keep the Colonel from being a first rate fellow, and one ot the cleverest men alive. From the Fort Scott Monitor: "The Southwest is the name of the paper just started in Humboldt by G. P. bmith and edited by U.

Jr. bmith and Byron C. Smith. It is a thirty-two column paper, well printed, containing a large amount of reading matter. It is for Greeley and Brown, but cannot hope to make much impression on the llepub- lican majority in Allen county.

The paper is a credit to Humboldt and Kan sas, and is evidently in the hands of ex perienced journalists. From the Fort Scott Echo "We have just received the first num ber of the Southwest, published, at Humboldt, by the femiths. It a creditable eight column paper, handsomely printed. It hoists the names of Greeley and Brown above its mast head. Long may it wave!" From the Topeka Record.

"The Southwest, which has been promised so long, has come to hand. The first number, dated at Humboldt, June 13, 1872 is an eight column sheet, and bears the name ot G. P. Smith as pub lisher, with his and Byron C. Sniith's names as editors.

It supports Greeley and Brown. The paper is a resurrection of the Humboldt Statesman with, now material added, exhibits both talent and taste. From the Ottawa nerald: "We are in receipt of the Southwest published at Humboldt, by G. P. Smith It is a neat, well printed eight column paper and shows marked ability in its editorial management.

In its introduc tory it says: 'We are republican, but do not desire to be the organ of a party, to obey the mandates and do the biddings ot its leaders, whether wise men or tools. honest men or It hoists the names of Greeley and Brown hcre'i our ISA." From the Olathe Mirror: "We have received the first number ot the Southwest, a now paper just started at Humboldt, U. if. Smith, pub lisher, G. P.

and Byron C. Smith, editors. It is a well tiled, thirty two column sheet, and while it is Inde pendent Kepubliean in politics, it places at the head ot its columns as Presidential candidates the names of Greeley and Brown.

He has made Humboldt, Kansas, his new home, ajid us recently bought the old office of the" Statesman, and refitted it entire with a choico selection of new material from lis, adding besides a new style Globe quarto, and a first-class job office, changing the name of the paper to the Southwest.

Our sister State is fortunate in securing as one of her legislators (being a member her legislature) one ot our best citi zens, and her press the valuable acquisition of one of our soundest and veteran editors." From the Neodesha Citizen: "We have received the first number of the Southwest, published at Humboldt by G. Smith, Esq. It is a handsome sheet, and well filled with local and edi torial matter. In Col. Smith the Lib eral cause will find an able and faithful exponent." From the Tioga Herald: "The Southwest, Hon.

B. Winans (Grant's second cousin) 8,000 We call this full ticket, but it is evidently partial and incomplete, for we have not poon able to trace through all the degrees of propinquity and blood the number of relatives that Grant has billeted upon the Publio Treasury. There are doubtless a great many more. The re-election of Grant means the re appointment of all these members of his family, and with a still wider circuit of relationship. The question has been brought up in the canvass, and if decided in favor of Grant, he may well consider that his policy of making all the offices of the country his personal perquisites has been approved by the people.

It is maintained by his friends that it is a proot ot his kindness ot heart and generosity that he remembers his relations, and singles them all out for public honor, preferment and emolument. It is not, therefore, simply electing Grant, but, re-electing all of his family down to the lowest degree of relationship, which is the question presented. In this connection we have heard a good story which is Worth telling. Grant has a cousin who is a widow, in Clermont county, with three sons. He appointed two of the sons to profitable places, and as soon as the youngest had acquired age he sent on ar appointment for him.

To this the widow very modestly demurred, urging that she might be allowed to retain at one of the (ihildren at home. Whether the President gratified the re quest has nut transpired. Our object in presenting this ticket has been to vindicate the Grant family (other than Ulysses) from which they would seem to be consigned by the Grant organs. It is well to know for whom we are to vote. We are not giving our suffrage for one man, but to the most numerous family of whom history has any record, which family all rises or sinks together.

To five the Grant ticket sininlv with the name ot tlysses S. Grant for President is only the commencement of a Ion id a Nte was no reason why the SpfeWlj re.fiF-(j m-is. Sanger to save it from devastation and ruin. How can a State expect to rely on a prompt response of its citizens unless it is as prompt in fulfilling its part of the obligation There never was shown by any people such en earnest response to the call of its Governor as was shown on that memorable occasion, and no State, which has the ability of this State, that ever so shabbily treated its loyal citizens after their serv ices were needed no longer. And why I Because at the head of affairs, in the Legislature and Out, in Congress and out, there was a ring of speculators to buy up accounts, and after the scrip was issued to buy up the samo at one-half, one-fourth and one-eighth its face.

Intensely Radical Kansas boasting of Republican majority ol did this. And to-day it is political crime for an honest and patriotic Republican to break from the ranks of this god and humani ty party which, since the organization of the State, has placed men power to rob the people and enrich themselves. No, the Republican party must be kept in power, that robbery and oppression through all time may crush out the liberties of the people and steal away their substance. We think sufferers by the Price raid scrip ought to vote the regular Republican ticket forever as a reward to that pure party which, since tho close of the war, has done all in its power to make" tho rich richer and tho poor poorer. Stand up and wink under the party lash and remain dumb before the howling herd of Grant's adherents who are so fu-riouslv attempting to create an enthusi asm for the regular ticket.

Don't split jhe party. If you do some office-holder might lose his "posish" and rascality might be brought to light and the rottenness of the regulars be exposed. Cringe under the lash and vote the party straight, with closed eyes. Uvrard Press. Gcrtians will be deprived ot tlieir means ot il hhood by one of tho provisions ot the tai and tariff bill which Gen.

Grant's sifjnature has just made a law. It compels each retail dealer in leaf tobacco to pa(j00, aiid in addition, if his annual Siilc exceed $1,000, fifty cents tai on Lever dollar ot sucn excess, in otner woi i the business of the retail dealer is desfmyed by a prohibitory tax. The delation of a retail dealer is as follows: person shall be regarded as a retail-dealer in leaf tobacco whose business is to sell leaf tobacco in quantities less than an original hogshead, case or bale; or who skull sell directly to consumers, or to persons other than dealers in af tobacco, who have paid a special tax ns such; or manufacturers of tobacco, snuff cigars, who have paid a special tax; or to persons who purchase in original packages for export." It will be seen that the purchase of a smaller quantity of leaf tobacco than the original hogshead, case or bale, will speedily become impracticable. It is well known that, of the 2,200 retail purchasers of leaf tobacco in this city, most of whom manufacture cigars in their lit tle back shops, aided by the members of their family and perhaps a single hired hand, not one-fourth have the means or the eredit to enable them to buy unbrok en packages of the different sorts of leaf tobacco needed tor their trade. I he conditions are similar in other cities, and we are that not less than 50,000 Germans will thus be thrown out of business.

The people benefitted by this legislation are, of course, the wholesale manufacturers. It is a significant fact that while such penalties have been inflicted on retail dealers, the wholesale dealers have only to pay $25 tax per an num, an additional tax that they formerly paid upon sales exceeding $1 0,000 being by this new abolished. Most fWrntins -excuses will be necessary to justify the course of legislators who have thus discriminated tavor ot the rich against the poor. iV. Y.

Tribune, Dr. n. B. Horn, of Atchison, has been spoken of as a good man to run upon the Liberal ticket this fall for secretary of State. There is not a better man tor that position in the State.

Western Herald. i Dr. Horn is undoubtedly a good man but Hon. W. II.

Sinallwood, the present incumbent, will beat him or any other Liberal candidate just as easy as falling off a log. )athena Reporter Hon. Wm. H. Sinallwood won't do anything of the kind.

He isn't going to beat anybody very much after this. Whoever gets the nomination of the Liberal Republican party this fall will walk nirht over the track. And lr. Horn is the man who is going to get that nomination. He is the choice ot Atchi son county, and as Atchison county is going to roll up 500 or 700 majority for the Liberal ticket she will have some thing to say about it.

Dr. Horn is just the man for the place and no man by the name oi Nuallwood ca beat him, no difference if he docs carry his wood on the top of his should ers. Atchnon Jratnut. omen, it they would rule mens hearts, must deserve, and unwittingly ex act, the approval and admiration af their mil. There is a way to win by commanding, and to command by winning.

Such was the bossip of half a dozen villagers', who stood in front oftheprinci-pal stores one Summer evening, while the subject of their rctuarks went staggering along the opposite side of the street. It was evident that he was trying to walk straight, and not to appear intoxicated, but such endeavors always seem to make a drunken man walk more crookedly. Well, it proved one thing; that he was not yet lost to all sense ot shame that he still retained a little pride, and a lingering aversion, to being ridiculed and despised! But Harry Kodgers had carried on at a fearful rate for a year or two past. He had just one vice drink but that was enough. He had become an actual drunkard by degrees, and was every day growing more abandoned.

He had mar ried a worthy fanner's daughter, Nettie Ray, only a tewyears, previously, and such had been his conduct during more than a year past that she, seeing no hope of his reform, had been obliged to cast him loose, to pursue his profligate course alone: and a legid separation had just been effected. It was sad indeed, but no other course seemed to be left her. Harry's home was on a little farm, a mile from town, He owned it, but then it was heavily mortgaged, and in another year foreclosure was certain. It was not likely his creditors would spare him, when he made no enort to meet his obligations, and spent his time in riotous and disgraceful conduct. A week passed after that summer evening pn which all had agreed in predicting his early ruin two weeks three weeks a month or two.

What strange mystery is here. To the utter bewilderment of tho prophesying sages, Harry discontinued visiting the tavern, and was rarely ever seen in the village. When he did come to the store, he speedily transacted his business and went homo sober. i But wonders never cease, when they get a start. He was next reported as actually at work, on his farm.

Had but one man Been this and told it in the village he would have been marked as a man lacking veracity: but a number of neighbors saw it and told it, and their combined testimony was worthy ot all credence. The little farm began to look teal thier, as the summer wore on. The fences straightened up: the weeds disappeared; the corn grew marvelously; the briars and elders were rooted up from the fields and fence-rows; the animals looked fat ter, sleeker and happier; the little cottage looked neater. Time wore on, and the great change was the more strongly marked each day, Harry's creditors called and told him they would not be hard on him, seeing that he was doing his best, and he might have his own time about paying his debts and clearing his farm or the mortgage, The fall came, and the farm yielded an abundance of golden com and fruit; such crops, indeed, as it had never pro duced before, and Harry found himself beginning to drift along with the tide of prosperity. And Xettie Ray had begun to live her young girlhood over again, as it were, under her father's roof; but, somuhow, it was not like the happy, joyous girlhood of memory.

It was sober and quiet now and Nettie fell into trains of musing, and every now and then passed through a eertain sad thoutht the was neither nidid nor wife. drono.

Our own heart must suf fice for the task, and then Providence will renew it, and fortify it when it be gins to fail-. To tell your own secrets is generally folly, but that folly is without guilt to communicate those with which we are intrusted is always treachery, and treachery, fo the most pari, combined with folly.

In the whole history of science there 5s nothing more Wonderful than the discovery or invention (it would be difficult to say which is the more correct term) of spectrum analysis. Thirteen years ago it had no existence whatever as a mode of scientific inquiry.

Not fiya years had passed from the day whea Kirchkoff announced the true meaning of the dark lines in tho solar spectrum, before Huggius and Miller were telling astronomers of the terrestrial elements existing in the stare. Then the great secret of the gaseous nebulae was revealed by Higgins, and soon after the structure of comets began to be interpreted. The importance of the new mode of research in all problems of chemical analysis, as a delicate test for determining the preseuce of poisons, as a means of improving many processes of manufacture, and as an aid in almost every branch of scientific inquiry, become each year more clearly recognized. We have seen Sorby analyzing by its means the coloring-matter of plants, and the entomologist com- i paring the spectrum of the glow-worm and the fire fly. The microscopist employs the powers of the new analysis to solve problems which the magnifying powers of his instruments would be alto- gether unable to cope with- Nothing, in short seems too vast or too minute, too distant or too near at hand, for this wonderful instrument of research, which deals as readily with the muss of Finns, a thousand times largf-r nl a million times farther awsv th in our sun, wish the f-n-thousmtUh jart matter in si fiame within tive i.

She did so, and stood timidly at the farther side of the road, easing longingly at the house that had heen a home for her first of happiness, then of misery. By and by she felt an irresistible yearning to look at the room once more. He Was evidently within, and there was no danger that he would see her.

So she walked hurriedly across the road, opened the gate softly, and stepped into the lawn. Another moment, and she was at the window, looking in. What singular behaviorl but she could not help it, The little room was as neat as when she herself had watched over it. A cheerful fire was burning in the grate, although it was not very cold, and a lighted lamp Btood on tho table It was there that Harry was sitting. How her heart bounded as she caught sight of him! He held in his right hand a book, from his scanty library.

She recognized it at oncd; hut he was not reading now: He had allowed it to drop, with its pages looking mutely to the ceiling and his face was supported, half concealed, in the left hand, the elbow resting on the table. Was he asleep, or was he buried in a sad reverie? Nettie thought that the latter was the case, and her heart wm touched "I wish I had borne with him," she said to herself. But a moment later her heart was more than touched, when she was sure she saw a tear roll down his cheek, and dropped upon the hook. The lonely Kan was not asleep; he was crying. She.cmild not help it.

All that was woniauly in her heart was aroused, and she was at the door in a moment. No ceremony she burst into the sitting- room and was at his side. "Oh.Harrv!" ITpr voiw muvered with emotion, ity, ne exclaimed, trying to hide? im tews men are ashamed of them "is i "Yes, Harry!" hiding" her face in her hands, "I was passing I looked in I saw you sitting here so lonely, and could not help coming in. I thought of the time when we were happy here, and Then her womanly tears could he restrained no longer. There was no use trying to hide them.

Besides her voice broke down and she could say no more just then. "Nettie," he exclaimed as he arose and took both her hands from her face, and held them in his own. "I thought you had blotted me out of your memory." "JNo, no, Harry! she sobbed- "1 could not do that. I could not help leaving you; but I loft you, loving you more than ever. Oh, I have been unhappy since!" "Nettie, you have heard that I "Yes, I have heard that you are chang-- ed that you do not drink anv more- that you are again manly and industrious as you used to be; but how kwely you must he here?" and the tears gushed lorth anew, as her heart telt what her lips spoke.

"Yes, I am lonely, Nettie more so than you may think; but I deserve this punishment for the way I have acted. I had no discouragements I had nothing to make me do so. It was only a passion for drink, that it seemed impossible for mo to overcome. "You were all a wife should be or could be. When you left me I thought I should become more reckless than ever.

Only a day or two after I knew you had left nie for good I was in town, drank, and I heard some of the village people they did not think I could hear them across the street passing all sorts of remarks about me, saying that I was a doomed man for certain, that my destruction was near. Although intoxicated, it startled me, and for the first time I felt the full force of our separation, and realized that ruin stared me in the face. I had a bottle of whisky in my pocket at the time, and when I got out of town I smashed it. bathed my face in a little clear stream of water at the road side, and silently re solved never to touch whisky again. had tried it long enough to know that I c6uld not drink and be temperate.

It was hard to keep my resolve for the first week or two; but I stood it, and soon my taste for drink disappeared I care noth ing for it now, and would not touch it if it ran in streams. Now, Nettie, if you love me as evcr-and God knows that I love you the same let us start anew, let us get married over again, and the bitter experience of the last two years will only enhance our happiness. Nettie, dear, what do you say? She could not answer'. She was crying as though her heart would break, and her head was pillowed upon his breast. It was a more eloquent "les, than she could have spoken with the tongue.

"Harry," she finally sobbed, in a self-reproaching way, "I might have borne with you longer." "No, no, Nettie, it was best. It has brought us certain happiness now.
