THEY CALL ME A TRAITOR, NOW.
Tbe following llnei were suggested by teeing
an oio man intently gazing at mo American
flag as it floated from tbe dome of one of the
hotels in Memphis. I live," said be, " in Mis
sissippi, where they won't let that flag be raised,
but 1 love that flag; I bore It through the In
dian wars, and at New Orleans, under General
Jackson. I am sixty-nine years of age. I was
born and raised In this State. My lather, an
old Revolutionary soldier, was one of the ear
liest settlers. My country has been very good
to me, and gave me tbe land I love. My coun
try I love. I love Tennessee; I am sorry I
ever left her. I want to live where that flag
waves. I don't like the people of Mississippi ;
they tall me a traitor, note."
I have borne that flag in early years,
To conquer a savage foe,
Whose ravaging deeds on our then frontier
Brought terror, death, and woo.
And bow we suffered, 'mid toll ,and pain,
'TIS history will tell you how ;
Yet those whose peace those wars did gain,
'Can call me a traitor now.
I bore that flag in New Orleans,
Which city's doom was thought
Beyond.the power of patriot means,
Ere' the glorious Eighth was fought ;
But when I saw to the stripes and stars
The British lion bow,
I little thought, In my grateful prayers,
To be called a traitor now.
No pelican flag was beard of then ;
No moon's lone star was found;
No palmetto bush, with Its shaggy stem,
And the serpent colled around ;
But the stars and stripes alone remained ;
And pray, can you tell me how
That be who bore that flag unstained
Can be called a traitor nowT
Ob, had I remained In my native State,
Where my chieftain's grave is made,
Or had I been doomed to a similar fate,
And my bones near his been laid ;
Or had ho been spared for bis country's good,
I am sure he'd not allow
Those friends who In arms by him had stood,
Should be branded as traitors now.
But why, in my age, am I thus assailed 1
To my name why apply this stain ?
Have I to my country ever failed,
Or to society proved a bane ?
No I no such charge or kindred crime
Can be stamped on my furrowed brow ;
But because rebellion I must decline,
They call me a traitor now.
But yet, In my heart, I can't despair
My country, so free and pure,
Whose tolls and triumphs I helped to share,
For ages will yet endure.
When madmen cease, and calm react
And reason their minds endow,
They'll then these cruel words retract,
That make me a traitor now.
ONE TH0U8AND A YEAR.
From the New York Sunday Times.
"Will it do to marry on $1,009 a year?"
writes a younj- lady, who adds that she is mod
erate inter wishes, but desires to preserve " a
respectable and genteel appearance." She
wants to know, ana, if such It result can be best
accomplished by boarding or keeping house.
Why a young lady should apply to us for
sage advice and wisdom of this kind is a mys
tery : still, if she wants a free and unbiased
opinion, she is welcome to it, Marry on a
thousand a year by all means, and, if properly
managed, it will not only preserve a respecta
ble appearance, but leave something as a nu
cleus for future operations besides. Keep
house, also, if you desire the comfort and
pleasures of a home. Never mind being coop
ed up, or subjected to. unnecessary expenses,
in order to be near friends. It is a wife a duty
to make her homo the centre of attraction to
her husband, and uotdepend on others to make
it so to her. Her own satisfaction and reward
in it will come all in good time.
We are almost afraid to suggest, in this re
fined age, so vulgar and outre a proceeding ;
i but still, if a young lady has natural good
sense, courage, tact, and industry, she would
facilitate her plans greatly by ignoring " help "
until domestic aid becomes a necessity. At
least one third of the current expenses would
be saved, and a sufficient sum monthly to
handsomely clothe a woman of taste and " mod
erate " wishes. To live well, and especially to
save, on small means, requires simply method
in expenditure, and knowing how and where
to economize. Some people Jive in wretched
tenement houses, and think they cannot afford
a nice article of furniture or decent garment,
who waste as much as these would cost in
hiring lazy help, in drinking, in wasteful liv
ing, and in carousing with people as idle and
shiftless as themselves. Others board, because
they cannot support an establishment equal
to some of the least honest and most extrava
gant of their friends, and suffer the conse
quences in the loss of ail home pleasures( and
a constant desire to fill the void with exciting
and expensive amusements.
Those may marry on a thousand a year who
don't care afig for Mrs, Grundy; who ure self
reliant and independent ; who are not afraid
of meeting a little difficulty, and fighting it
alone ; who are courageously determined to do
the best they know how under the circum
stances, and do not accept the duties and re
sponsibilities of such a position only for the
purpose of attaching a claim for free board
and millinery bills to some unfortunate indi
vidual for the remainder of their natural lives.
Does " Young Lady " feel like taking her
share in the battle of life, and performing it
cheerfully and well? If she does, then tho
recipient of a thousand a year is a very fortu
nate man, and tbe sooner they marry tho bet
ter ; but if sho is weak in the knees and weak
in the back, and especially weak at heart and
weak in her head, she had better wait until
some one comes along who is willing and able
to support, as a wife, such a mass of imbecility.
What will " Young Lady " Jo ?
Ami Sunday Law Mletinu in New York.
At a recent anti-Sunday law meeting in New
York, the Rev. J. Q. Fitch advocated the repeal
of the Sunday laws. Ho believed that the peo
rile should wen be allowed to have boating, ball
playing, and band of music playing in tbe
Central'Park, on Sundays, as they were at pres
ent allowed to skate there without tho interrup
tion of the police or the destruction of public
order. ,He compared the extreme rigid Sab
batarians to old Peter Stuyvesant, who, when
his. house stood at the head of what now is
tho Bowery, complained that tho boys trans
gressed tho bounds of decency by bathing in
the East river. " But," said the Governor of
New Amsterdam, " your house is a great way
from East rrver." " Yaw," replied Peter, "but

DOW DISCOVERING A THIEF.
After Lorenzo Dow had retired to his room,
afte a hard day's travel in tho western part of
Virginia, a number of persons collected in the
bar-room to enjoy their usual revelries, as was
the custom in that part of the country. At a
late hour in the night, the alarm was given that
one of the company had lost his pocket book,
and a search proposed. Whereupon, the land
lord remarked that Lorenzo Dow was in tbe
house, and that, if the money was there, he
knew that Lorenzo could find it. The sugges
tion was instantly received with approbation,
and accordingly Mr. Dow was aroused from his
slumbers, and brought forth to find the money.
As he entered the room, his eyes ran through
the company with searching inquiry, but notb
ing appeared that could fix gnilt upon any one.
The loser appeared, with a countenance ex-
Sressive of great concern, and besought Mr.
ow, for Heaven's sake, to find the money.
" Have any left the company since you lost
your money?" said Mr. Dow.
" None," said the loser, " none I "
"Then," said Lorenzo, turning to the land
lord, "go and bring a large dinner pot."
This created no little surprise. But, as su
pernatural powers were universally conceded,
his directions were unhesitatingly obeyed. Ac
cordingly, the pot was brought forward, and set
in the middle of the room.
J' Now," said Lorenzo, "go and bring the old
ohicken cock from the roost."
This was also done ; and at Lorenzo's direc
tions, the cock was placed in the pot, and cov
ered over with a board or lid.
" Let tho doors now be fastened, and the
lights extinguished," said Mr. Dow, which was
also done. " Now," said he, " every person in
the room must rub his hands hard against the
pot, and when the guilty hand touches, the cock
Accordingly, all came forward and rubbed or
pretended to rub against the pot. But no cock
" Let the candles now be lighted," said Lo
renzo ; " there is no guilty person here. If the
man had any money, he must have lost it in some
place else. Bnt stop." said Lorenzo, when all
things were prepared; "let us now examine
tho hands 1 "
This was the important part of the arrange
ment, for, on examination, it was found that
ono man had not rubbed against the pot. Tho
othors' hands being black with the soot from
tho pot, was a proof of their innocence.
" There I " said Lorenzo, pointing to the man
with clean hands, " there is tho man who picked
The culprit, seeing his detection, nt onco ac
knowledged his guilt, and gave up the money.
ONE OF THE SLEEPERS.
Away out in Missouri they live on the primi
tive system. People sleep, as well as cat, in
companies, and in many of the hotels there are
from three to a dozen beds in each chamber.
On a cold winter's night, a weary arid foot
worn traveller arrived at one of those caravan
saries by the roadside. After stepping into
the bar room and taking the requisite number
of drinks, he invoked tbe attention of the land
lady with the interrogatory
" I say, marm, have you got a considerable
number of beds in your house ? "
" Yes, I reckon wo have," she answered.
" How many beds have you about this time
(bat ain't noways engaged ? "
" Well, we have one room up stairs with
eleven beds in it."
"That's just right," said the traveller, " I'll
take that room, and engage all the beds, if
The landlady, not expecting any more com
pany that night, and thinking that her guest
might wish to bo alone, consented that he
might occupy the room. But no sooner had
tbe wayfarer retired, than a large party arrived,
and demanded lodgings for the night.
The landlady told them she was sorry, but
all her rooms were engaged ; true, there was
one room with eleven beds in it, and only one
" We must go there, then ; wo must have
They accordingly proceeded to the chamber
with the beds, and rapped j no answer was re
turned. They essayed to open the door : it was
locked. They shouted aloud, but received no
answer. At last, driven to desperation, they
decided upon bursting open the door. They
had no sooner done so, than they discovered
evory bedstead in the room empty, and all the
beds piled upon one another in the centre of
the room, with the traveller sound asleep on
They with some difficulty aroused him, and.

Desfeiute SnooTixa Affrat ik New
York. Caleb Bolstridge, a young man 21
years of age, and Thomas McQuade, a lad of
1G years, have long been employed in Bruce's
type foundry, 13 Chambers street, hut recently
both formed attachments for a young woman,
and from friends thoy became enemies. They
have had several quarrels over the matter, but
failed to come to an amicable adjustment of
their difficulties. Meeting on a steamboat last
Monday afternoon, these rivals for the lady's
hand engaged in another desperato fight, in
which both were more or less injured.
Early this (Tuesday) afternoon, Bolstridge
and McQuade, after disputing in tho workshop,
resolved to repair to the front of the building,
and engage in a fist fight, with the understand
ing that the vanquished foe should relinquish
all claim ho might have to the young Miss in
question. On reaching the sidewalk, McQuade
commenced pulling off his coat, whereupon
Bolstridge drew a six-barrelled pistol and fired,
tho ball taking effect in the left side of
WASHINGTON, D. C, THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1861.
McQuade's neck, inflicting a wound which may
prove fatal. Bolstridge, on seeing the blood
gush from the wound of the boy, who fell to
tho pavement, ran back into the buildin?.
whither he was pursued by Officer Wilson, of
iuo oiAiu wuru, ana arresiea. lie was taken to
the station-house and locked up. McQuade
was at once removed to tho N. Y. Hospital,
where he remains under treatment. As yet, it
is impossible to trace the ball, which is sup
posed to havo lodged in the muscles of the
neck. Express, Tuesday evening.
SHOCKING DOMESTIC TRAGEDY.
A most shocking and heart rending domestic
tragedy occurred on Saturday afternoon, in the
Amelia omnibus, about twenty miles from this
city, which has seldom had its parallel anywhere,
and certainly never in this section of the coun
try. The parties were residents of Cincinnati
Mr. Washington Grigsby and wife who have
for some time been boarding at No. 177 Syca
more street, he having been occupied as a sign
and ornamental painter. Mrs. Grigsby was a
young and beautiful woman, to whom her hus
band, during the five years of their connubial
life, had been most devotedly attached, but
against whom he frequently harbored the most
bitter feelings of jealousy, which, on several oc
casions, led to temporary separation.
About one year ago, Grigsby was led again
to suspect the fidelity of his wife, and a separa
tion was the consequence. As usual, however,
the husband soon relented, and sought an inter
view with his wife, but all was of no avail ;
friends remonstrated, but she obstinately re
fused again to nnite herself with a man whom
her whole conduct but too plainly proved she
bitterly detested. The husband managed, by
some strategy, to obtain possession of their
only child, a boy about four years of age, and
left him with a relative, near Amelia, twenty
two miles from this city, hoping by that means
to induce her to relent ; but it was all in vain
her determination was fixed she would never
see him more.
She, however, resorted to every stratagem
to discover her child in its concealment, and
on Saturday last succeeded. She immediately
secured a seat in the omnibus, which was to
start from the corner of Pearl and Broadway
the following afternoon. Her movements, how
ever, were discovered by her husband, and
when tho hour came for tho vehicle to leave,
the door opened, and he stepped in beside her.
On the road he endeavored again to reconcile
her to himself, but again all his overtures were
spurned, until when some twenty miles from
the city, and within a short distance of their
destination, he turned to her, and said, "I
have been faithful to you, but you have been
false to me. I loved you, but you loved me
not; I was willing to forgive you, but you have
spurned me ; you shall never do it again."
He paused a moment ; she made no reply,
but gave him a look of contempt and disdain.
He then drew a revolver from his pocket, and
fired two shots, one ball entering her right eye,
and lodging in the brain, and the other taking
effect in tho abdomen ; and then, without utter
ing a word, he discharged the contents of a
third barrel into his own forehead, scattering
his brains in all directions, and killing him
almost instantly. The woman, although fatal
ly wounded, is still alive. The relations of
both parties were sent for, and arrived at tho
scene of the tragedy during the night. Grigs
by's remains will be interred at Amelia to day.
P. S. Since the above was written, we learn
that Mrs. Grigsby died about eighteen hours
after receiving the wounds. Cincinnati Gaz.

The brig Julia E. Avery, of Thomaston, Maine.
Captain E. W. Ryder, arrived at this port yes
terday, from St. Thomas, W. 1. The captain
narrates the following as the experience of him
self and son, at the hands of tho people of
Georgia. He arrived with his vessel at Eucio's
Mills, Camden county, Georgia, npon the first of
itui luvcwucr, vruu u cargo ui aaJt uncK, ac
Soon after his arrival, a colored man, owned by
Dr. Bailey, and hired by a man named Scott,
was sent on board by his master to sell some
oars, and also engaged to do the washing for
the captain and his son, J. B. Ryder, the sec
ond mate of the vessel.
The circumstance offended some of the fire
eaters, who, to the number of five, visited the
vessel on the night of the 6th of November,
and in an overbearing way charged tho cap
tain with having concealed the negro on board,
and searching the vessel fore and aft, they
found nothing, and left.
The following night, twenty-five persons,
calling themselves a vigilance committee, came
down and demanded the surrender of the negro,
alleging that be was on board a trumped-up
charge. The captain reiterated his denial, but
the Georgians would not be satisfied, and thor
oughly ransacked the ship, asserting that they
were in search of abolition documents.
Fiuding nothing, they took the captain and
his son prisoners, marching them off to Jef
ferson, fifteen miles distant, where, after being
subjected to many indignities, a court was con
vened, and a mock trial was had. The only
evidence which could be obtained against them
was that of tho negro cook of another vessel,
who, being frightened, swore he heard the
prisoners say that they would have voted for
Lincoln if tbey could have done so. Upon this
testimony they were convicted, and each was
sentenced to fourteen days' imprisonment and
twenty five lashes, the latter to be given at the
whipping-post, in front of the court house.
Tbe punishment was inflicted, and after their
imprisonment had expired they were put on
board of their vessel and ordered away. They
were glad to escape from the savages with their
lives. The vessel has since made a voyage to
the West Indies. Tho captain, who is 54 years
of age, is still suffering from the effects of his
harsh treatment, the lashing having caused a
serious affection of tho lungs. His sou has
recovered from its effects. N. I" Times.

DR. SCHENCK, the Lung Doctor. The Pro
prietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY
RUP, the Inventor of SCIIENCK'S RESP1ROME
TER, the only instrument that can to a certainty
detect the slightest murmur of the respiratory
This is of great Importance to Dr. SCHENCK,
to know tho exact condition of the lungs, whether
It Is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether It
Is both lungs or only one that are diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCHENCK to get examined that have been ex
amined by their family physician, who told them
that their lungs were almost gone j when, by a
close examination with the Resplrometer, it is
often found that It is an afftuion of the bron
chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of
the liver and tone to the stomach, the sufferer is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough is certain death to the pa
tient. It locks up the liver, stops tho drculation
of tho blood ; hemorrhage follows, and, in fact,
stopping the action ot the very organs that
caused tho cough.
Liver complaints and Dyspepsia arc the causes
of two-thirds of the cases of Consumption. Per
sons are at this time complaining with dull pain
in tho side, bowels sometimes costive and some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoul
der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at
uuicr times urowsy ; everyiuing tnat Is eaten lies
heavy on the stomach ; acidity, belching up
wind. Hundreds are comDlaininr? at this tlmn
in this way. Let them take a heavy cold, and,
before they get rid ot it, then another, then is
tbe time to know what to do, then is the time to
go to Dr. SCHENCK and get your lungs exam
ined, then Is tbe time to know what cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then
the lungs, liver, and stomach, are all put Into an
Inactive state, and, before the patient is aware
of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores,
and death must soon follow.
SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP " Is an ex
pectorant which does not contain any opium,
nor anything calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by the SEAWEED
TONIC, to Improve the tone of the stomach, and
restore a healthy action of the digestive organs,
with the MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a
healthy action of the liver. When these are ta
ken together, or as indicated, they are sure to
bring the constitution back to a healthy state
when affected by any of the above diseases. Dr.
SCHENCK believes that too much cannot be said
In favor of the curative powers of the MAN
DRAKE PILLS. Their action is peculiar, but
certain, in all cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of tbe whole system,
and often passes under the name of CONSUMP
TION, when that disease does not exist at all, or
If it docs, Is readily curablo by a proper atten
tion to restoring a healthy action of tbe stomach,
liver, and other functions, whose duty it is to
eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish tho wheels of the
Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life
sometimes several months, by keeping the bron
chial tubes free from the putrid matter which
impedes their functions, when tbe lungs are too
far gone to cure. There is no medicino that can
cure Consumption when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every
one would know their true condition beforo ta
king his medicine.
He treats no diseases but those cf the Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, and makes no charges tor
advice, or examining lungs in the ordinary way,
or as physicians generally do ; but for a thorough
examination with the lit spirometer be charges
three dollars, and wishes every one, rlcbjor poor,
that has a Cough, Pain in tho Side or Shoulder
blade, troubled with Costiteness or Diarrhoea,
Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir
its, Restlessness at Night, or any other disease
leading to Consumption, to call ou him as above
and get bis advice.
Often, a twentj-fivo cent box of SCIIENCK'S
MANDRAKE PILLS will remove tbe cause of
this great terror of the countrj Consumption.
All of Dr. SCHENCK'S medicines are prepared
under his own supervision, and sold, wholesale
