Anecdote orf Cneral ,ee,
There was a q'iot vein of urnia
lignant fun in "Intla Robert"-fot
thus was lie alwdys named by his en.
thusiatic followert-which was con
tinually cropping to the surface, and
the recoil--tion of whiuh often raises
a asmile on the lips of thoe who lived
by his side, and remember how
quaintly ie loved to manifest it. The
two following anecdotes will serve to
illustrate its nature :
About a week before the battle of
Frer erijksburg-that is to say on
or about the Oth of December, 1862
--the weather was for a few days
bitterly cold. General Leo and his
staff were camping out-as usual in
tents-about three miles to the south
of the Rappahannock river and the
little town of Fredericksburg. There
were some members of his staff, who,
although young enough to be his
sons, were yet more sensible of the
cold than their iron chief. To him,
as to Hannibal, cold or heat made no
difference. Standing round the camp
fire upon the morning in question and
shivering before each blast of a biting
wind, which came from the frozen
North, and reminded the sufferere
that the thermometer was below zero,
more than one member of Gen. Lee's
slaff was heard to mutter an aspira
lion for a glass of whiskey toddy, or
some other alcobolic stimulant. No
one noticed that the General took any
cognizance, or was even aware of this
half-articulate expression of a wish.
But presently, emerging from his ten
with a stone bottle ordemijohn under
his arn, he drew near to the camp
fire, and saitr:
"Gentlemen, the morning is very
cold ; the kindness of a friend enables
me to offer you a cordial ; pray bring
your tin cups, and taste what I have
There were one or two on-lookeis
who noticed a twinkle in the old
soldier's eye, and a lurking smile
upuon his mouth, which taught them

inquired, as usual, after his health,
and he learned, in reply, that the

Grant's Withdrawal Proposed,
Tilton's Golden Age has come to
the conclusion that the only way to
preserve the Republican party is for
Grant voluntarily to withdraw fromi
the field, "now without fTirthier de
lay," and "to notify his partisans
that he will not be a candidate at
Philadelphia." It says there are
thousands and tens of thousands of
Republicans who would not vote for
him again, "even though he should
be jointly nominated both at Cim
cinnati and P'hiladel phi.." The
Golden Age adds: "if Grant will
not retire, nothing remain. but what
