True to tito Gray.
BT FE4UL IUVEB3.
1 cannot listen to your words,
The laad is luce and wide;
Go seek some happy Northern girl
To be yonr loving bride.
My brothers all were soldiers,
The youngest of tho three
Was slain wb?o Ashling by the side
" Of gallant Fitzhugu Lee.
They left his body on the field,
(Your side the day had won),
A soldier spumed nina with his foot
You might have been the one.
My lover was a soldier,
He marched with Gordon's band;
. A sabre pierced his gallant heart
Yours might have been the hand,
de reeled and fell, but was not dead,
A horseman spurred bis steed.
And trampled on thedyiog brain
Yon may have done the deed.
1 bold no hatred in my heart.
Ko cold, unrighteous pride.
For many a gallant soldier fought
Upon the other side.
But still I cannot kiss the hand
That smote my country sore.
Ncr love the ioes that trampled down
The colors t oat she boro.
Between my heart and yours there rolls
A deep and crimson tide
My brother's and my lover's blood
Forbid me be your bride.
The girls who loved the boys in gray,
2 he girl? to country true,
May ne'er in wedlock give their hand
: To those who wore the blue.
The Radicals in Trouble-A Caucus on
tue Tenure-of-office Bill-A Proposition
to Suspend the Act for Four Yean
The Senatorial Repealers Indignantly
Withdraw-T he 1 11 r n Ka die als
Alarmed-The Quarrel to be fat ched
- The Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Gazette, writing under date of Monday
Bight, says :
The Radical happy family came very near
splitting np to-day, and bad the separation
taken place ii would have been irrevocable.
Tho Radical Senators went into caucus this
morning, with a view to adopt some means to
get rid of this bantling-the Civil office tenure
act-which was batched in such haste, and
Which now has most decidedly come home to
Siost. After the canons was organized Messrs.
orton, Sherman and Warner spoke at length,
ajod very earnestly advocating the repeal of J
the law, and to give Grant a chance to execute
hi? office without the incubus of such
an injudicious and unconstitutional act.
Morrill insisted on the law remaining
on the statute books just aa it is. He
thought it was a proper and advisable check
upon the Executive power, when he voted for
it in the first instance, and his opinion had not
changed. Edmunds, the great non-repealer,
then took the floor and U3ed his best logic
wbicL is not very gool-in attempting to per?
suade the disaffected that the law was just
sa applicable to the present administration as
it'was to the last one. He found, however,
that his fallacies did not have the desired
effect, and as a dernier resort proposed that
the bill he not repoaled, but suspended for
four years. This proposition immediately met
the favor of those who insist on repeal, not
from any high motives of principle, but only
to keep on the right side of Grant in order to
get a full share of the loaves and fishes. It soon
became evident that this proposition would
meet the wishes of a majority of the cau?
cus, and the lew high-mindod men in the as?
semblage being mostly for repeal and not
desiring to be bound by .he vote of tho
caucus, abruptly withdrew. This frightened
the carpet-baggers and a lew others, who
saw that a wedge had been started which if
driven further would deprive be brass of the
party of the brains necessary to keep it
bright. When Morton, Spragne, Sherman.
Grimes and a dozen others quietly arouo and
Walked out of the door, a stir was created.
Here was a deci led muss. A division of th9
party was imminent, and a few of tho sharp i ]
ones saw it and knew that the only way to pre?
vent this '.consummation, most devoutly to be
wished," by the Democrats, was to adjourn and
have a talk with the seceders. Twelve o'clock,
tho time for the meeting of the Senate, was at
hand, so the caucus adjourned to meet again
at two- o'clock. Between tho hours of twelve I ?
,and two considerable talking and coaxing was
done, the upshot of which was that when the
caucus met at two o'clock all the Radicals weie 11
present. Both parties mada concessions, and | f
after some debate it was agreed to recommit
-th? bill to the Judiciary Com mut tee, with tho
Tjndestanding that it would resort a bill which . ,
-would 60 modify the law as to virtually remove ,
.the restrictions now imposed upou the Execu?
tive. The caucus broke up apparently with
the best of feeling, in spite of the ill-ieehng
previously manifested. 1f
ThtPreiiaettonthc Repeal of the Ten.
? Washington (March 21) telegram to the
Boston Advertiser says :
President Grant speaks freely enough about
the Tehure-of-ofhce act to persons who ask his | [
views. Some gentlemen who were with him
three or four days ago, furnish the following, I ?
which is believed to be a substantially correct 1
report of the interview. Ho said: ''I shall | 1
try to execute all the laws made by Con
<gross, and I mean to be just as faithful in I .
executing those I do not like as thoee I do | ?j
-like. I shouldalike to have tho Tenure-of-office
Btw repealed, for it stands in the way of several ?
reforma we want to make, bnt if Congress does i
not repeal it, I shall execute it the same a s if I ?
had signed it. " One of the gentlemen asked him 1
if the law was considered binding when the Seu- fi
at-ewas in session, to which the President is re?
ported as answering: "Certainly; there is no?
thing in it which says it shall be iu effect a part
of the year and not in effect the other part, lt
does not say that office-holders may be removed *
at tho pleasure of the Executive doting the time '
, Congress is in session, while a strong causa is
" required for their suspension during the ame
Congress is not in session. As a citizen the
law is of no mote consequence to me than to
any other person, but as President it will pre?
vent me from removing many persons I think
ought to be removed. The President then
mentioned by i<ame tbe head of one of the
bureaus in Washington, and continued :
"I do not think he is a fit man for the
place, and yet probably I could not make
ont a case against him. If I knew as
muc i about his doings as he himself does, I
think 1 could, 'bnt as it is, if I should say to
the Senate, '1 believe he ought ts be remov- j j
ed,' he and his friends-and he has a good f i
many-would begin directly to show why be
ought not to be removed, and I do not know
but. the Sen >te would decide in hB favor. I
haven't anything m the world agains. him
personally, out I am s rong in the conviction
that I could put a good deal better man in his
place, aud it I'm to be held responsive for the
conduct of that bureau I want a man
. there whom I know I can trust." lhere
was somo further talk about this particular
bureau, and then on:- of the gentlemen j
present remarked that he honed a curia.u j
person at the head of a bureau in an b
other department would bo removed. The
President smiled and saia: "Well, now, only I b
yesterday I Lad some gentlemen hero wbb I 6
begged me to Keep him in. I know him well,
and never heard but that ho was a good citizen;
hut I am convinced, and thc head of that de?
partment is convinced, that tho public interest
wcuid bo bcuetitted hy putting a mau there
who is not mixed o ;i with things of Mr. John?
son's administra iou. Some people say that he
is honest, and some say he is not. 1 am in?
clined to iL:uk he is, but it I undertake- to put
him out and put somebody else in, he'll ruhy
agamst me all kinds of opposition. Ho
and his friends would work amoug the
senators, and might convince some of
them that Pm a very bad man because I
dont tbink he's a very good man for the place
he'p got." Thi* remark caused some laughter,
dunng which the gentlemen ros** to leave, one
of tjem asking, as lie did BO, if any nomina?
tions would be sent in that day. " Nothing of
cons?quence,"bSid the Presiden - ; "I'm going
to wan a fvw days and see what i ongress does, i ?
Lt they repeal hat la v I'm ready to maka a | i
good many nominations. If they don't repeal
it, we mu-t go very carefully. I shall want to
make some cbanceB, but if I'm liable to be
c died in eveiv cast lor charges and specfica
fdons and evidei.ee, I shall havo to look over
the field tbon uehly bet?re I begin."

iTHE? WHO ABE BICH,
Are they who mind their own business. Find a hap?
py man or woman, and the affairs of another trouble
them bnt a little. It ls none of your business if the
minister kisses one of the sisters, or one of tho sis?
ters tims salutes the minister. It cannot effect you
when a man you know calls on a girl you don't know,
or one you do. What If there ls kissing behind the
door, in tunnel?, and when the night ls dark at the
vestibule of the '.burch, or even ever the gate. Would
you not do the same thing if the chance was offered ?

AND HE HAD A FEMALE CHILD,
Whoso name was He .a Brlghtwater. and who was
twenty-nine years old ; who wore red stockings, red
garters, metal tipped shoes, preen spectacles, and
the prettiest rod hair the world ever sei eyes on or
into. Hexa, a true New England gal, chewed wads of j
pin- gum. and sweetened her broth with onions.
Hcxa wasn't se much handsomer than a doll ss to
make the ?oil faint, but sho was intelligent; in fact, in?
telligence was her best hold but one; she was great
on malling baby garments, and bad her trunks tull,
pocked away, that sho might be ready as willing
when the evil hour drew nigh, as she trusted lt would
from year to year.

VALTER, MY BOY,
Hero comes a man who waa once rich. He hod
friends, and money, and a loving family, and posi?
tion, and lLfluenoe, and self-respect, and integrily,
and a futuro ol' u6Cfulnoss before him. Bur, my
boy, he don't look like it now. Ho was elected to on
important office. Ho forgot the lessons his good
mother taught him, and was asked by designing
puliti.'ians to sell bis vote to a party of swindlers; he
could not for tho life of him give articulation to that
httlo word, and so he fell.
HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR THE COMPLAINT,
From mother and fr I her, that tho sou or daughter is
colwell; that they have no appetite; that they ted
languid; that thc bpad ache.' ail the Hmo; that they
aroarcwimi thin and leoule, and that they havu no
Ute nor energy lelL And tho questiOLS ore often
asked. Whit ?hall I do for tbtm ? What ? hall 1 give
them? Our answer is, let tbi-m try Plantation Bit

for lt they will recover.
