Two great parties he found en-
aged with equal zeal in this im-

treatment; the other the local, or

handsome paper box.
"Ah!" said he in a surprise,
"did you have it ready?"

"Yes," said the clerk carelessly,
"I saw you come in and whilst

A Touching Story.
There could be no fitter story to
read as we sit above the Christ-
mas fire than that 'of the loss ot
the Water Witch, which comes to
us this week from Conception Bay.
Nine shipwrecked people find
themselves at midnight of Dec. 9
clinging to a fiozen rock, the
waves dashing over them inces-
santly, wh ie above them tower
gigantic peakh. There is no vs-
cape for thein; below is the seu;
it is impossible to climnb these
precipices, sheeted with ice. The
fisherman of a poor villag-, having
been roused by others ot the crew,
collect at the r-p of the rocks, the
good clergymian at iheir head. In
the darkneAs and driving storm
they can see nothing, only hear
the faint cries in the abyss below.

Surely this is a story for Chist-

beautiful by which we bring St.

and all the little tender sympa-
thies home wherewith to celebrate
the day on which Christ was born;
but not the leis belong to it hero-
ic acts of self-sacrifice and every
deed by which man greatly serves
his brother man. On Christmas
morning we will go to church, or
make our own children happy, or
give a little pleasure to some poor
woman in the alley, and feel that
we have partaken of the spirit of
Him who gave His life for us. But
this fisherman (who, for aught we
know, may have been Catholic,
Protestant, or outside of any
church) is roused out of his sleep
at the dead of night to look into
a black abyss and to hear human
voices. That is all: he cannot
even see whether they are men or
women there below, struggling
with death; he does not know
from what part of the world they
came: they are strangers-nothing
to him. Nothing but brothers; and
he takes his life i, his hand and of-
fers it for them. We are quite
sure as we read the story, that this
poor laborer on the dreary New-
foundland coast is a brother to us

at We take the following from t
n- late issue of the Savannah News
nd As the News has.an extender
c- circulation in Florida, having
M among its citizens probably at
I. large a subscription as any pape
he published within its borders, I
he seek, through its columns, to rec
ss ommend to the Democratic and(
s- Conservative party as the mos
a suitable nomination for Governoi
he that can be made, the gentleman
a whose name heads this communi.
t cation. In doing so, I would state
that I am not influenced by friend-
id ship, nor prompted by movtivei
ms of policy, but seek to promote the
Id best interests of the State, by
e- electing the right man to the right
place, recommending him to the
responsible position, not because(
be he is available, but because he is
)e so eminentily capable. The virtue,
d intelligence, and respectability of
st Florida, long to see, once more, in
r- the Gubernatorial chair, a man of
if culture, statesmanship and integ-
ie rity-and I cannot but add what
a striking contrast would be pre-
t- seated to the observing mine be-
3s tween what would then fill it, and
i- what, alas! fills it now. Florida
. to be redeemed from the oppres-
)f sive rule of the party who has
long fed on its vitals, must deter-
n mine to redeem herself, just as
!- Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas and
r Mississippi have done. Those
. States have given glorious exam-
. pies of what may be achieved, po-
litically, by the determination to
achieve. The latter State, for in-
n stance, bad greatly more to con-
t tend against than Florida can pos-
e sibly have. As soon as the bayo-
n net was removed from her breast,
s she collected her material, formed
d organizations, executed with skill,
combinations embracing the merit
1 of the whites and blacks, nomina-
n ted .her best men for office, and
y resolutely, courageously andI un-
.compromisingly entered into the
s contest to win, and she won. The
good prevailed over the bad, the
right over wrong, decency over
e filth, intelligence over ignorance,
- honesty over roguery, pluck over
Cowardice, patriotism over treach-

, ery; in short, that which makes
States over that which destroys
them. Florida will have mu^hb
less to do to effect her redemption
than Mississippi did. Let her,
then, take Courage and do it.
General Barnes is well known
as a lawyer of ability, of scholarly
culture, of practical, discriminat-
ing judgment, of broad, compre-
hensive views; without malice;
just without pretension, honest,
patriotic, firm. Politically, he
has opponents, but no enemies;
personally, he is deservedly popu-
lar, and no man is more so in the
State. If elected-and in order to
win there must be no "if" about
it-he would administer the affairs
of the State in a manner alike ju-
dicious and wise, and as no clique's
tool, but as an able, faithful ser-
vant, he would contribute much
toward redeeming Florida from its
present lamentable condition.

Sudden Deathof a Prominent
On going upon the streets early last
Wednesday morning we were painfully
shocked to hear that Mr. Irby Roberts,
one of our oldest and most highly re-
spected citizens, had died suddenly of
billious colic. Mr. R. was subject to
attacks from colic and was taken sud-
denly ill with this disease on Tuesday
but was not supposed by his friends or
the community to be in danger, but the
summons had come 'and on Tuesday
night he breathed his last.
Mr. Roberts came to Ocala many
years ago from Georgia and has been
actively engaged in business here. He
was one of our most prominent land-
marks, was an active member of the
Methodist Church, and had a wide cir-
cle of friends and acquaintances. His
devoted and heart-broken wife has the
sympathy of our community in her sad

that Rev. A. J. Battle, D.D., the distin-
guished President of Mercer University,
has begun a series of deeply interesting
articles in the Christian Index, on "the
Human Will." Dr. Battle stands aImong
the foremost representatives of the
Baptist denomination in the South, in
point of scholarship, worth and influ-
. In addition to these valuable contri-
butions we take occasion to say, that
the Index and Baptist is, undoubtedly,
the most prominent and influential re-
ligious family paper published in the
South. Under the managing editor-

ship of Rev. David E. Butler, assisted
bye a corps of first class editorial writers,
and enriched by contributions from the
ablest pens to be found among the
Baptist denomination in Georgia its
worth and influence among Baptists
cannot be overestimated.
But aside from its denominational
value, the Index commends itself to
every intelligent reader as pre-emninent-
ly worthy of patronage on account of
its value as a family and literary paper.
It presents whatever is worthy of pre-
sentation in the affairs of the day, in a
pure,. chaste and condensed style. Its
comments are terse, frank, unprejudic-
.ed, and always aim to elucidate th
truth and advance ;the good.
"Its literary tone is high, its ethics
broad and thoroughly Christian.; Ever3

Rev. Mr. Nail, of the Presbyterian

of the good seed so diligently planted
will be long felt in the community.

On last Sunday four Wagon Ioads of
colored people passed through this place

FeNE ORANGEs.--The largest and
finest oranges we have ever seen was
sent us some weeks ago by Mrs. Judge
Tillman of Sumter county. They were
of tremendous size, bright color and
splendid flavor. We have no hesita-
tion in saying that they are the finest
oranges grown in Florida. She will
have samples at the State Fair and will
be!.a candidate for the first prize and
we know she'll get it,. Her crop is still
unsold. Persons wishing large oranges
to send to, friends will do well to ad-
dress Mrs. Tillman at Sumterville.

1876 will'be'a year-of stirring polit-
