from Biaht-iir City states that eight M e

with negroes. They have orders to go

for New Orleans. He says Badger is

Most of the recruits are of the better
class, well mounted and generally armed
with breech loading shot-guns. So far
the young men principally have gone to
the field. The married men in the towns
are watching the negro organization and
are preparing to frustrate them. The
captains of steamboats have been warn

consequently did not bring these at the
bay, knowing their boats would be blowu
up. The entire Bayon Teche is under
surveillance by well-orgauized bodies of
citizens. The Kellogg troops can only
reach St Martinsville by fighting their
way up the bayou.
The Grand Jury lias passed resolu

A Cass of Gallantry.
From the recently published lifo of
the Rev. Samuel J. May we take the
During his college life he was fre
quently invited by the father of one of
his classmates, who was the chief man
ager of the middlesex caual, to a wafer
party iti tho vicinity. On one of which
occasions bo was introduced to Daniel
Webster, when a whimsical occurrence
On our return from Woburn we stop
ped at a beautiful point on tho shore of
Spot Pond. So soon as the ladies came
upon the margin of the little lake, they
espied unaccountable numbers of lilies,
whose fragrauce is so refreshing. Each
and all exclaimed how they longed to
have them. But they were too far off
to be reached by any means but a boat
or raft. But whore could the one be
fouud or the material for the other be
collected! The more the probability
of getting them seemed to recede, the
more earnest became the desires of the
youug ladies to be possessed of the beau
tifull flowers, and the more touching
their expressions of disappoiutment-
At length Mr. Webster exclaimed,
"Oh, that i were as young as I was a
few years ago? I would ransack the
shore of the pond until I found some
boat or boards by which to reach and
gather those lilies." No sooner were
the words out of his mouth thau the
young men bouuded off at the top of
their speed to find what he intimated
ought to be sought after. Nearly all
weut. I stood very demurely, enduring
as well as 1 could the glances of a most
contemptuous surprise at my want of
gallantry. I stood until my fellows
were too far gone to see what I meant to
do, when I waded out and collected all
that I could bring in of the lovely temp
ters. Shouts of applause cheered me on
and when I reached the shore, soaked
with water from my waistcoat pockets
downward, and presented to each of the
ladies one or more of the flowers they
had so much desired, their thanks were
profuse, and to roe quite as grateful as
the fragrance of thelillies, mixed as they
were, with tender expressions of anxiety
lest my gallantry should cost me some
severe sickness. The gentlemen were
not backward in commanding the exploit
and Mr. Webster was louder than all of
them in my praise. "Ah, sir," said I,
' the ladies owe these lilies less to my
gallantry than to your eloquence. I
could not stand unmoved by your ap
peal." "Never before," he exclaimed
"never befoie have I gained a lily by my
eloquence." "No, sir," I rejoined, "but
it has often been crowned with laurels."
All this, of course, prolonged some
wLat the merriment, until we saw the
young men returning along the shore of
the lake, dragging an old dory which
they had found about a quarter of a mile
off. Immediately all the company ar
ranged themselves to welcome the poor
fellows, every lady with a lily in her
bosom or on her head, and every geutle
man swiuging one in his hand. So soon
as my comrades got near enough to e.py
the flowers, they dropped the rope of the
boat, and pushed forward to be assured
the appearance was a reality. And when
they saw that the lilies had indeed been
taken from the pond, and fouud that they
had "gotten only their labor for their
pains," while they in their hearts gener
ously exalted with me in my triumph,
they threatened me with all sorts of re
taliations if I were not protected by the
presence of the fair sex.
A Blonds for a Ersnetts.
There is a little romance rgoing the
rounds about Richard Farqnahr Dingle
and his wife Phoebe, and Robert Moore
and his wife Mary. The account of the
strange fortune that happened these cou
ples is so circumstantial thsU it must be
in the main true. AH the parties were
English, and were newly married as
above iu England before they came to
the New World to court the .goddess
Fortune. Dick Dingle and his wife were
both blondes, and Bb Moore and Lis
were browns, and both women were beam
ties of their respective types, aud nil

they did not know each other. , Dick

which she duly received. This reconcil

time, iiut she heard no more from him
for some yetrs, and she begnn to regard
him as dead, ihe fact is, he was living
a wild sort of life in South America, and

He promised to write to his wife soon,
but never did, and was not luckv ia the
Arg. ntine country. Finally Dick Diu-
gle and Bob Moore met, and both were
vagabonds in a Etrauge country and
without money or friends. They joined
their fortunes, and told each other the
story of their lives. There was a re-
markable similarity between them. Thcy;fulueg3 and the domains of the drowsy

money and began to behave themselves
belter. It was seven years since Dick
Dingle had written to his wife, and one
day iu a fit of repeutence, he wrote her
a letter enclosing $1,000, and asking her
to join him in South America as soon as
possible. In the meantime she had re
moved from Petroleum Centre to Phila
delphia, but the letter and the money
fouud her after a long delay.
ON THE WRONG TRACK.
As Dick had waited the proper time,
and heard nothing from his wife, he be
gan to feel uneasy, and one day resolved
to return to the United States to hunt
her up. He started from Panama on the
English steamer George Watts for the
United States on Friday, tho 7th day of
Juno last, while his wife sailed from N.
Y. for the Argentine Republic the next
day, Saturday, June 8. Dick went to
Petroleum Centre, thence to Philadel
phia, but could not find his wife or hear
anythrig of her. Ua then went to New
York- resolved to take the next packet
for South America to join Bob Moore.
But something occurred to prevent the
voyage. lie got on a little bit of a spree
in New York and happened to stumble
into a store on Broadway to bny some
triding article. There, behind the coun
ter, he saw a handsome brunette whose
face looked charmingly familiar He
was not mistaken it was she, and the
picture he carried proved it. The ac
quaintance ripened. Mary had sought
and obtained a divorce from Bob Moore
for desertion, and was free, and lovely
and still young. Dick Dingle told the
story of his wife's disappearance, and
the couple resolved that she must be
dead, so these two got married, and are
now living happily in Brooklyn.
FINDING HER PICTURE.
Phoebe Dingle ploughed the deep to
join her recreant but repentant husbaud
in the Argentine Republic. She was
doomed to disappointment, but she fouud
Bob Moore, and Bob showed her the pic
ture which he bad received from the
hands of Dick Dingle himself, but Le
did not tell her 'the whole story. In
fact, it is uncertain what Bob did say to
the beautiful women who had come eo
far to find her husband and failed, but it
is quite certain that those two got marri
ed iu a very &hort time, and now live in
Cordova City, Argentine Republic
A real blonde is quite a variety down
there, and she makes a sensation when
she rides out every evening on a beauti
ful palfrey. It is, perhaps, just as well
as it has fallen out. These two singular
couples are too far apart ever to interfere
with each other's happiness, and are
much better satisfied as they are than as
Pleasing wate is balf gold.
An Indiana Ecg Stay.
Last week, says the Indianapolis Her
ald, a performing dog named 'Greenbax'
strayed fiom a side show connected with
the Great Eastern Circus, and became a
lost dog. A boy was sent from Terre
Haute to hunt up the lost dog, and . he
put an advertisement into tho Herald,
promising a reward of ten dollars for the
delivery of Greenbax to Fred. Thomp
son of the Clipper saloon. The Herald
came out about half-past one o'clock Sat
urday afternoon, and in a couple of hours
the information was diffused from the
furthest Oak Hill addition on the north-
east to the Sellers farm that a dog had
been lost and money could be m;tde by
returning him By four o'clock dogs
brgan to arrive freely in front of the
Clipper. The newsboys who usually
sell the evening papers had all taken
the chances and gone dog hunting. Three
thousand apprentices had put in their
Saturday afternoon, half holliday in dog
J hunting, and each one reported at the
l Clipper some time during the afternoon
'or niL'ht with a rTixi-which he was sme
was tho veritable Greenbax. There were
all sorts of black and tan dog, in vari
ous stages of dilution, all answering to
the name of Greenbax. '
Mr. Thompson adjudicated tho claims
: of the various applicants for tho re ward
! and decided adversely. But still the
! ns came in, aud beiiif turned loose,
and having no place to go, most of them
hung about the establishment. There
were dogs ia the back yard, dogs behind
barrels and caks, and dogs suifding
about the heels of customers trying to
scrape an acquaintance. Mr. Thompson
and registered a solemn oath that lie
! would never aiain try tohtlD a showman i
j to recover his lust dog. Some wags

Mi;? Bhickwt-ll claims to be the spiiit
who introduced the knowledge of spirit
ualism into Fiance, so long ago as 1359,
and she is now the fin-t, she informs us,
to lay before English readers the mora
intellectual and refined doctrine of Spirit
ism. This doctrine it seems" involves .
belief in thp reincarnation of souls, some
thing "like the metempsychosis of the
nncicuts, its chief modern exponent beings
the Lite M. Allen Kardce. Some disem
bodied souls, according to communication
made "to mediums, become incarnated
sooner than others. These others wan
der abont, i fteu fi r hundreds of year?,
as a punishment for their sins, without
being reincarnated. Medium cf a supe
rior discernment, accrording to Mis
Blackwell, are gifted with tho power of
knowing, what was their own previous;
condition on earth. This was tho casn
with All-in Kardce, who alleged himself
to have becm, in a former state of life.

I 'Mi s is g .iiig lack some hundreds of
yean?, but is nothing to the antiquity cf
Miss Black well's own previous existence.
She informs us that she has authentic
evidence, revealed to her by two spirits
that so far back as the year 3513 B. C
she held the distinguished positiou of a
princess of Abyssinia. It was her father
of th.: date who first communicated this
to her, and the' intelligtnce La? sinre
keen confitmed by an other spirit, with
w hom she has held the following dia-
logne, "Are yon a friend?" "Enemy."
"Of this life?" "No, long ago." "Io what
quarter of the globe?" "Africa." "What
country?" "Abyssinia." "Before or aftpr
Christ?" "Rtfore." 1iw many pears?"
-3543 ' "What was I?" "King's daugh
ter." ".Was I good?'' "Wicked and ugly'
"Who were j oil?" "Your attendant "
We have no doubt that Miss Black
well is quite the, reverse now of wb;t
her African attendant represents her to
have been iu the year 3513 B. C, but
it is a terrible thing to Lave one's iig'i
uess and fins cast into oua's teeth so
many thousand years after it mightjiavn
been thought they were forgotten. We
wonder whether Pythagoras has any
such messages brought to him respecting
his doings in the character of Euphor
bns, when warring on the plains of Troy.
