Evening Post. I I Old Fashioned Servants. In those days when the Boston stajre office was in Elm street, girls with blooming cheeks came from the pine woods of Maine, the breezy hills of New Hampshire and the green hills of Vermont, to do housework in the city. They arrived by! stage over Charlcstown bridge, and beheld with wondering eyes the shipping in the harbor. Westward they saw the spues of Cambridge, while before them ro3c the city of Boston with its labyrinth of street and lanes." Down through Union street galloped the horses, the. people rushed to their doors and windows to witness the event of the day the coming in of the stage, -and refreshing their eyes with the sight of health and beaut v. Tlie stage coach with six horses on the; tun was the highest idea of progress. Society at that' period ran at the rate of nine.miles an hour. Farmers from all -Down East," from the Canada line, and from Berkshire hills came in -midwinter io Boston market, and there was an annual throng of red sleights round Faneuii hall. In those days there was no lack of children in the land, and M. D.'s and D.

Those who. had a surplus of daughters were always oh the lookout when at market for situations where a dollar a week could be earned by Jane and Mary; so, when the girls came whirling into the city in tlie stage, they knew where they were going,' and what wages they were to receive ; for it had all been set tled by the prudent father.

Stimson and Wiufield Scott, of-Kan sas, made very stirring ad lresses,' touching the moral and religious wants of the. young and rising state. Dr. Evarts also rpoke at considerable length,-and with more than or dinary power. He thinks this "tent" v ill in augurate a method of disseminating gospel truth which will become popniar and common in. sparsely settled districts, and that it . will also be the means of popularizing and aug menting our national gatherings.

Moriiing Star, Grog Logic There is, says the Tribune, a legion of the grog-minded who assume that the best thing for the state is to leave every form of wicked ncss alone. Those who argue that we lia.v"e no rightto jrcstrain or prevent the FaWofj poisions are naturally opposed to preventintr prostitution or polygamy. Of course they are by sequence equally opposed to preventing the circulation of obscene journals and counter feit currency." We are at loss to know upon what principle they found tlpcir notion of the paramount utility and iuipunity of crime, un less it be in a libertine conception of the law of supply and demand. Thns, iXxQ supply of polygamy and crinis generally will be regulated by the demand for it ; and so, in the opinion of our sophists, the natural law will govern the case. But has it ever struck our cotcmporaries that wholesale prevention' is a part of tho supply and demand and the moment wc cease to make a moral effort at public progress, that moment we arc guilty of public crime ?
