incalculable. Behold the first city we are
about to attack ! It was built by Alexan.
Bonapart was remarkable for breaking
tnrough the traditions of military practice.
Thus, on the eve of the battle of Austerlitz,
he adopted tbe startling and unusual
course of disclosing the plan of the cam
paign to the puvate soldiers ot his army.
"Che Russians want to turn my right,
and they present me their flank, tioldien I
will myself direct all your battallions:
depend upon me to keep myself far from
the fire, so long as, with your accus

confusion into tbe enemy's rank,; but if
victory was ior one moment uncertain, you
would see me in the foremost ranks, to ex
pose myself to their attack. There will
be the honor of the French Infantry the
first infantry in tbe world. This victory
will terminate your campaign, and then
the peace we shall make will be worthy of

Extraordinary Fortitude of a Child—a
Little Boy Cuts Off His Arm to Keep
Little Boy Cuts Off His Arm to Keep Out of School.
Last Monday morning George Smith, a
boy only seven join old, residiag at I'leas
antville, thirty miles from the city, told his
parents, if they insisted on sending him to
school, that he woull throw himself on the
Harlem railroad trsck, wMJi was near hit
father's land, a d receive such injuria as
would compel tbem to kiep him at home.
They thought nothing of tbe threat, and
having ordered him to school forthwith,
tuppBxl ho had gine, until they learned
bad executed his menace. Whan the
o'clock up mail train passed the village
George laid his left arm upon the track,
and tbe cars passed over it, severing n ar
lf the whole of bis hand from the limb
The engineer perceiving him then for the
tint time, stopped the train, when the
child ran off, snd was found, with his
shattered and bleeding arm behind his
back, silting on a fence whistling "Yankee
Doodle," and pretending nothing had hap
pened. B-sfoic he could be taken home,
George tainted from pain and loss of b'o;dj
but when restored and a smgec n was sum
moned, he rafused most obstinately to taks
any anasithetic agent, but told tbe medical
gentleman to cut away. The scalpel was
used on the mangled limb, but the little
fellow ac'ei --.ttunpvred. or oomjkloinArl.
Nit a nerve trembled during the operation,
which must havo been very painful ; in
dee i the boy did not speak until it was
over, when be Temarked with great tri
umph: "Well I'm glad I did it; leant
sent to school for a wbile anyhow." Th
child acted with wonderful coolness, say
ing he first put his right arm tn the track,
but re fleet ixg that whtn he grew np he
would not be able to write well with tbe
lots of that limb, he substituted his left
His parents are much distressed at tbe oo
cuianor, and apprehend if he is sent to
school again, that be will destroy himself.
The boy's conduct it almost inexplicable,
and his foititude and determination ex
traordinary for one of his tender years.
We have known a great many little peo
ple who dielika the routine and connae
meat of school, but we sever before heard
one who preferred to part with bis arm
rather than submit to their disagreeable
ness, however great. Acta Fork Paper.
The Wheat Crop in Central Illinois.
A correspondent of the Jtfissotrri Democrat,
writing from Sandoval, Illinois, un
der date of June 22, says :
"The wheat crop will not be mora than
half cren. on account of biurnt occasioned
by the rust. Some fields which promised

Some of our farmers are very mucn a

WASHINGTON, June 27.
THE IMPORTUNATE FOOTS.
One of the most mournful among nu
merous applications for pardon, is that of
the ex-rebel senator, Henry S. Foote, who
writes from the sequestered spot of Mon
treal, claiming that he is justified in soli
citing amnesty, on the ground that he was
acting with tbe majority of his fellow
citizens oi the South. It is considered
very doubtful if he is pardoned for the
present, at least.
A number of Southerners are here who
are worth more than -0,ooo, urging
special pardons. At the present rale the
whole confederacy will apply for pardon
before the 1st of August. Among those
pardoned to-day were some who left the
loyal States to jjin the rebellion.
Ford's Theater is being arranged props-

day tha Theater parses into the hands of
the Young Men's Christian Association,

Phil Sheridan's Early History.
Of the early history of Sheridan a
writer in Boutm at Some says :
Sheridan remained at Fpringfield until
after the battle of Pea Ridge, when he
was ordered, in consequence of a disagree
ment with the commanding General, to re
port at St. Louis under arrest. The cir
cumstances were such that, wbile not de
rogatory to General Curtis, they did no in
jury to Sheridan. The severe cold and ex
haustive marc ties nad reduced our siock
very much. It became necessary to re
plenish before a contemplated movement,
and General Curtis sent orders to Captain
Sheridan to gather up suitable animals
from tne country, ana, giving tne owners
vouchers, forward them to the army. At
the time the order was issued, the Captain
was excited about some depredations re
ported as committed by a company of Illi
nois cavalry, to complaints of which he did
not consider sufficient attention had been

rather indecorously alluding to this in con
nection with the order, and claiming that
ha was sot a "jayhawker." On this kitter
he was relieved and ordered to St. Louis.
After returning to St. Louis, Sheridan
was sent to Wisconsin to purchase horses,
that duty accomplished, ha was made
Chief Quartermaster of tha army under
General Halleck, before Corinth. The
writer met him here again, and found mm
grown to the full measure ef his new and
greater responsibilities. Soon after, he
was placed at the head of a cavalry region nt
the 2d Michigan, and themost dashing ca
valry leadi r vet found fleshed his "maiden j
lebre in the famous expedition under Col
onel SUiott, sent to destroy the Mobile
aad Ohio railroad at Boonevuie, Missis
sippi, thirty miles south of Oorin'h. It
will be remembered as a great success,
resulting in the capture and destruction of
a large train, the tearing up of the track,
and the capture of two thousand prisoners.
Shaxidan showed the qualities which have
tinoe made him illustrious. He was fore
most in all tha daring cavalry movements
following immediately upon tne evacuation
of Corinth movements which for the
first time showed tha superiority of our
cavalry. In less than a month Sheridan
was in oommand ot the ti brigade ot tne
cavalry division of tha Army of the Miss

THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH.
NEW YORK, June 28.
The Herald's 'Washington special says
The President si health is somewhat im
proved, though he is not well enough to
attend to business. In consequence, there
was no Cabinet meeting to-day, at which
South Carolina affairs 'were to be discussed.
The presence of delegation of lately vi
olent rebels from that State is regarded
with great diaatistaction by the Union
men, of whom Dr. Mackey is leader and
representative, and any concession to them
will certainly lead to much trouble.
D. XL Bingham, a refugee from Alaba
ma, driven out of that State for Union
sentiment, some lime after the breaking
out of the rebellion, nas prepared a long
protest to President Johnson against
appointment of Judge Parsons as Provis
ional Governor. He gives a record of the
men who composed the Alabama delega
tion, showing that many of them have
been original and persistent rebels, and to
have) largely assisted, personally and by
their wealth and influence, in sustaining
the rebel government and in the persecu
tion of Union man. He says the action of
the President restoring power to the slave
holding oligarchy who formerly controlled
the State, ostracizes and puts under ban
the real Union men, who will be ruled by
Major General Rawlins and lamily left
herd this forenoon for the West.

Senator Wade, as chairman of the Com
mittee on the Conduct of the War, is now
here revising the sheets of the report of
that committee, comprising the recent
testimony as to tbe treatment of our pris
oners, received at the hands of the rebels.
The committee state that tens of thousands
of our brave soldiers have fallen victims
to that savage and infernal spirit which
actuated those who spared not the prison
ers at their mercy, who sought by mid
night arson to destroy hundjteds of defence
less women and children and who hesitated
not to resort to any meant to commit acts
so horrible that the nation' stands aghast as
they are told what has been done.
T he Prison burgeon's report ot the Rich

fraction over one half of all the eases that
entered resulted in deatand most of these
deaths were more the result of inhu

our men died their bodies were treated a

were piled in the dead house and their eyes

the lives and condition of the prisoners,
and as one of the many illustrations! this,
a witness testified to the following: "I

The rebel said they got thirty day fur
lough for shooting a Yankee.
The Committee say it is a matter of con
gratulation that notwithstanding the great
provication to pursue a different Bourse, our
authorities have ever treated their prison

the rules of the most civilized warfare.

A Horrible Outrage.
The Natchez Courier has particular of
a brutal outrage on the person of Mr.
Henry Spann, living near Harrisonburg,
La. It says:
The desperadoes demtnded of Spann his
money; when, on being told he had none,
they " bucked" him, and procuring willow
switches, a villain stood on each side, and
whipped him until tbey extorted all of his
money, amounting to $1,600. They again
made another demand for money, which
was refused by- Spann, on the ground of
hit having none. They then took the un
fortunate roan, "bucked" him and placed
both of his feet in the fire, literally rotat
ing them. . After this hellish deed they
left, without procuring any more money.
The next evening these villains returned,
let fire to Spann's house, burning the same,
as well as aU his household effacU and other
