there wns a little breeze between
d Generals Butler and Sohenok (a part
ing shot on each side) which momen
tarily roused the Hoube. The matter
grew out of the debate on the whiskey
af d tobacco tax bill and insinuation
e heretofore wade by General Butler
n and-repeated on Friday night. In
2 ,repjy, exteral Sohenek used some
- very pointed. and bitter expressions,
Lt. _lIe..Aaid, among other things, that he
'9 admired an open foe, for he knew then
n where to find him and what course to
e pursue, but he' had the utmost con
d tempt- for the'dastard who would not
' only deliberately lie, but who, by
n itbiratliatitig rewrks, added cowardice
to the faleh,jod ; and he thanked 'God
' that his dispoaition did not carry him
a in thio direction, and that he never
engaged in that. sort of a contest.
d General Butler, who had betn on
one of the.lounges on the Democratic
h side of the House, here appeared upon
h the sone, and, coolly smoking his ci
ar, walked over to his seat. Mr.
n ogan, who had also made much op
position to the bill, asked Mr. Shenok
If' he allt ded to him. Mr. Shonok
V replied negatively. Mr. Butler here
r- desired to ask a question, and every
n body was on the qui vive to know
what was coming. The Massachusetts
e member avoided the direct question,
y but asked Mr. Sohonok if he had no.
ver read of the Pharisee who said he
d thanked God that he was not as other
men. Mr. Schenok said he had, and
added that the gentlemen from Massa
'chusets was perfectly familiar with it
doubtless, because everything that
. smaoked of hypocrisy was fami iar to
the gentleman, however it might
o come. This created a momentary
osensation, but it soon passed off, ap
, parently, although General Butler,
alluding to it afterwards, said he would
at the,.proper time, show by inoontro
vertable proof that what had been
ehataoterzed as insinuations had a
real fotindation in fact.
CoLUMnA AND AUGUSTA RAILROAD.
0 Colonel William Johnson, President
of the Columbia and Augusta Rail
Road, has memorialized the City
Council of Augusta to grant a free
transit to such carriages, omnibuses,
drays and wagons as may be necessa
ry to do the transportation between
the terminus of the road and the tem
porary' depot, until the completion of
the bridge across the river. The pe
tition says :
The traek of the Columbia and
Augusta Rail Road is expected to be
laid to the base of Schultz's hill,
where it is ascended by the Beeoh Is
land Road, a point not less than a mile
from your city, within the next six
weeks. At this, point a .temporary
depot will be established, until the
bridge can- he enstructed across the
Savannah River, for the purpose of
receiving and delivering freights and
passengers. In consideration of the
limited resources of the Company and
. the increased commercial facilities
a thus afforded to the city of Augusta,
the Columbia and Augusta Rail Road
t Company respectfully ask that your
. honorably body grant a free transit to
.such carriages, omnibuses, drays and
.wagons as may be necessary to do the
transportation between the city and
said'temporary depot until the comn
a pletion of said bridge across the river.
A CHILD ATTACKED BY RATs.--Te
-Reading (Pa.) .Dispatch says:
'rhe house of Mr. Joseph 11ello.
I way, near Douglaseville, is infested
I with rats, and so complete is their
,. sway that they have undertaken to
o drive.the family from their home.
Oni Monday night a little child was
f put.' to bed, and after it had been
I: asleep several large rats attacked it
and.ate a large portion of the flesh off
its handa, arms, and facd, before its
o ries were heard by the parents. The
Siutilation of the child is related as
-h6trible and heart-sickening. Medi
cal' aid was summoned, but it Is fear

AN EXCITINO INCIDENT.--Persons
on the lower wharves of the city, a lit.
tle after six o'clock this norniu wit
nessed an incident that occurre then
in the river, the mortal agony of
which, during the short time it lasted,
rendered it intensely interesting. A
gull had, with a swoop, struck its tal
ons deep into the back of a fish, the
size of which it had evidently mistak
en, for instead of bearing it away, as
it had intended, the fish not on
ly remained in the water, but swain
rapidly about on the surface of the
river, mounted by its fluttering and
now alarmed assailant, which was una
ble to disengage its claws from their
fastonings. The bird, in its endeav
ora at first to carry off and thon to
free itself from its intended prey, soon
exhausted its streigth, and its efforts
becoming gradually weaker from ox
haustion, the would be captor became
the captured, was dragged soroaming
beneath the water and its death notes
choked by the rippl'ng waves as they
closed over it-Alerandria Gazette.
PEACE IN TENNESsE -All the poo
ple of Tenuessee, Democrats and Radi.
eals, appear to agree that since Brown
low evacuated the Governorship and
went to Washington the condition of
the State is entirely different from
what it was. The Radicals, it is true,
do not generally ascribe, in so many
words, the great change to Brown.
low's departure, but some of them do,
and all admit that the change is ac
tual, substantial, and most happy one.
Strife and turmoil, have almost whol
ly ceased, and peace and harmony
have taken their place. No acts of
violence, or, at any rate, as fow as in
any State South or North, are record
ed. The clouds of trouble have pass
ed away, and the sun, moon and stars,
shine in the blue sky. The militia
that created so much disturbance,
keeping alive and exasperating the
feeling of violence, have been dis
banded, and are returning to their
homes, and a contented people are
left behind theni.-Louw'ville Journal.
INDIcATIONs OF AN APPItOACHING
\VAR.-The International, of London,
under date of the 23i1 ultimo, men
tions that correspondence from Berlin,
from authentic sources, leaves no
doubt respecting the military precau
tions now being taken by Prussia. A
mobolization of the Landwohr is im
ninent, and it is added that news re
ceived from Paris fully authorizes
these steps. In fact the prevailing
conviction in official circles in Berlin
is that Frace is preparing for an ear
ly war ; large purchases of horses are
reported, and it is even hinted that the
general elections will consequently
not take place until July 1, 1869.
dispatch to the New York Tribune
on Mondoy, opoking -of t,ho nomina
tions sent to the Senate, says:
The bonafide list came later in the I
day,but not before the Senate adjourn- 1
ed, and General Porter conveyed it
back to the White House, to be pro
duced again to-morrow. The Presi
dent, being asked to-night by a lead
ing senator some of the names in this
list, said he did uui rememaber them.
He or ly knew there were half a dos
en maijacs that were well receom
mended to leave the country, and
that he should be glad to get rid of
THE ALABAMIA CI.AiIs.--It is gen
erally believed that the Johnson (Re
verdy),treaty concerning the Alaba

imesw Washington correspondent says
the vote against it will be almost
unanimous. What -then ? Some body
has to back down, or there will be a
collision. Somebody will back down,
and there will be no collision!i

Women as Voters.
Whoever advocates this measure is
an enemy to women ; they stir up dis
cord, destroy domestic comfort, and
endeavor to entice themi from their
proper sphere-thus converting, says
the Sumter News, the abiding deity
of the home into a bold, political
wrangler, an outcast from the refined
and tender influence of life. "The
times are out of joint," else men with
well-balanced minds, who reflect on
the evident destinies of the two sexes,
would never lend the least influence to
weigh the scales in favor of giving the
ballot to women. The more intellec
tual and refined, the woman is, the
more she must shrink from coming in
contact with the coarse and vulgar in
fluences that attend political life.
The high prerogative of woman to
purify the hearts, 'and elevate the
thoughts, infuso religion into the
minds of all around her, in a word do
all which renders her, so much better A
than man, should not be recklessly
abandoned, for the sake of some posi
tion, in the political world, which de
generates and debases all who enter
theiein. Let not even those of your
sex who call themselves your friends
tempt you. Women of the South,
crowned with fairest flowers, and
brightest laurels to leave the sacred
retirement in which you sit apart
from all that might sully your spot
loss robes, for the fanatical throng,
the grovelling multitude, who would
allure you on to destruction, so as to
render you more like themselves.

hearthstone, - your theatre of useful

Difficulties Attending the Oultivation of
The Columbus (Ga.) Sun, of the
10th instant, in its weekly review of
that market, says
In the speculations concerning the
coming crop one element seems to have
been entirely overlooked by the cot
ton reporters, and that is the gradual
disappearance of trained laborers.
Women have almost wholly retired
from the fields. Former slaves have
died or removed to the towns or alto
gether from the country in considera
ble numbers. Few can be found who
will take the trouble to learn the
young as correctly as they did their
;laves, and if they had the desire, the
r,odmnan would not observe the in
struetions as well. Hence the rising
generation will not be such efficient
workers as their parents and the crop
will be that much shorter. Farmers
now complain that their stock are
lriven harder, cared for less, and
ienec killed quicker than ever before.
Planting thus becomes more expen.
.ivn. This fact united with the a -
tual lessening of the number of la
borers make it very improbable
whether a crop much exceeding 2,
500,000 bales will ever be produced.
