The prospect brightens. The
National Intelligencer thus sums
up the recent indications :
The first State to respond to
Grant's nomination was Oregon,
when the State was redeemed
from Republican misrule, and a
Democratic majority of 2,000
rolled up, with an almost unani

Such was the magical effect of

was an election, was this City, in
which the Conservatives gained

The third response is in the
election just held in Scranton, Pa.,
which the Democrats carry by
638 majority, gaining 148 on last
year's vote, and 450 on that of

was a abarp one. Over :1,400

Southerners in New York.
A late New York letter says;
The number of Southerners
living at the Nortb, particularly in
the City of New York, seems al
nost fabulous. They are presi.
ding over boarding-houses in the
avenues, on the cross-streets and
down town. They are working
banking establishments on wall
street, conducting assignments for
cotton and naval stores on Pearl
and Water streets and 21aiden
Lane, selling prints, shoes and
groceries on Broadway, Courtlandt
and Canal, furnishing matter for
the critical and local columns of
newspapers, clerking in wholesale
and retail houses, and,in a word,
filling every imaginable place of
business-from a candy shop up
to the spacious counters of the
merchant prince. Judgesand law
yers, who were the ornaments of
the Southern bench and bar,- bril
liant journalists, poets and nov
elists, eminent statesmen and dis
tinguished military leaders, beauti
ful and accomplished women who
were the'magicians of society in
Charleston, Augusta and Mobile,
and even beardless boys full of the
idea of forsaking a doomed coun
try, they are all there by thou
sands and tens of thousands.
Some idea may be-formed'of the
immensity of that number, when
it is said, that, in the election- of
Mayor Hoffman, the united South
ern and Irish vote easily deter
mined the political fortunes of the
6ity. Let a visitor, on any day.
take the cars on University Place
on Fourth Avenue, and he will
ec, ttat,-bot only have SoutuerntTsr
gone gorth, but tbat they have
earried.their home gallantry and
politeness with them. They never
sit in the street cars, and permit
ladies to stand up a tling which
the Yankees invariably do,. Even
a Northern woman can -tell by
intuition when she is toget a seat
in a crowded car, by her knowl
edge of the differcce between.the
cold, unimpassioned, calculating
face of a Yankee, merchant, and
the m*anly, deferential bearing of a
Southern gentleman. Thank God,
we beat them in politeness, if they
beat us in gold.
But what have all these South;
erners gained by going North?
They ran ~away fron .negro su
premacy and the plantation of pov
erty, and wvhat hav.e they got in
exelgange? The supremacy of a
cold, heartless, dissipated, vulgar
so eial system, and the terrors of
a poveriy-, such as the Sonth never
knew, which takes more women
and children by the brain and
heart, without warning or pity,
and presses- and crushes them un
til they are glad to di3. There
are hundreds of fair browved South
ern boys among the Yankees to
day, who do not know where they
will get a slice of bread for their
dinner. No, let our men stand by
their imperilled homesteads; or,
if they are burnt, let them stand by
the ruins uutil the angel of God's
mercy shall have come to us again.
We solemnly protest against our
young me'n leaving the places
w ere they where cradled, for
the pitiless hearthstones of strang
ers. If we must, let us follow
the old Athenian plan, and carry
our women and children to the
Island of Salamis, and to the
ships, but let us hold every square
inch of our native soil.

An Incident of the War-in
Ma. EDITOa; At the battle of
Gettysburg, when death was hew

it was fny misfortune to be in
command of a company of United
States infantry. I say it was my
misfortune ; but I speak of it as
a pity that a brother should rise.
aga nst brother, and those that
should have lived in peace and har
mony were now engaged in mortal
combat. I was for the Union then,
and am for the Union now, under
the old Constituiion of our, fore
fathers. After the Confederate
troops had gallantly charged the
Cemetery Heights, and been re
pulsed, I-.went out, as I was al
ways glad to do, to render any
assistance in rny power to the
wodnded. I made no distinction
between a rebel and a Yankee, and
I am certain no gentleman would.
Among the wounded was a Cap
tain Willie. S. Gray. As I came
up to him, I could see through
the gathering darkness how deadly
pale was the face of him who lay
on the ground before me. I placed
my canteen to his lips, and he
drank with feverish haste; I sat
down beside him, and be began to
speak very rapidly of bone. I
held my head lower, as he could not
speak above a whisper. He told
me his name, and requested me to
write to his tamily. "Tell them,"'
said he, "gently, they will miss
me at home,; they will look for
my coming, but I shall never
come." He held out his hand and
placed it im my own, and the

OLD SIss.--.Dr. Guthrie says ;
"I have read of brave, stout cap
tives, who had escaped from prison.
b)ut who brought away with them,
in swollen joints or festering
wounds, the marks and injuries of
the cruel fetters. And do not old
sins continue to hang about a man
even after grace has (delivered him
from their dominant power? Who
does not need every day and hour
to resort to the fountain of clean
sing, and wash his heart in the
blood of' Christ, oftener than he
washes his hands in water? We
need to b)e renewed day by day;
converted, a,s it were, not once or
twice, but every day. Surely, tbe
