-A.New York letter of Sunday says: "The

-An,Illinois paper tells or a clever rehabilita?
tion cf the human face divine upon which the
nose, upper lip, and adjacent parts had been
eaten away by an ulcer. Tba subject was a young
woman named Twtneham; she and'her parent?
were poor; she wished to obtain work, but her
unsightly face was an obstacle in the way of lier
doing so which was not easily to be o\ ercorae. lu
this sad predicament she applied to fir. Wright,
of Canton, for relief. a:.dhe, aided by Dr. Rainby,
undertook the apparently hopeless task of mak?
ing her presentable. And first, an upper lip was
supplied by taklng.a piece of dash from tue, back
part of the cheek arid placing it where lt was
wanted. When this operation had proved suc?
cessful, the nose was restored by cutting a por?
tion of the flesh from the forehead, bringing lt
down and making it grow where tue nose once
was. Other necessities were supplied in similar
ways, and it ls said that now a casual observer
would never suppose that the young woman's
face had ever been eaten, mutilated and restored.
-The directors of the Angl... American Tele?

cables have titus far been unsuccessful, it ls tur
ther stated, that the efforts to repair the cables
will be continued so long as thc weather will per?
mit, but that the probabilities of success arc
much less than If the brcik had occurred during
the Bummer. The accumlat'.on or business at both
ends or the French cane, it ls estimated, is equal
to Its capacity during toity eight hours, and this
accumulation is made np from thc un-ent mes?
anges during four business days. lu order to

-Augusta, of rrussia, toe Queen of srern old
King William, has been Interviewed by a corres?
pondent of thc New York Times, who finds her
wearing wonderfully well, despite the auxieiles
she baa of late undergone. She is of a tall and
commanding Agare, regular oval face, fine, dark
expressive ey es, and ls very rtatelv and measured
n her movements. No one caa leave her pre
moe withouttreing impressed with the kindness
md charming frankness of her manner. She la
highly educated and accomplished, and ls very
partial to France and the French tongue. Sie
thinks Napoleon unjustly blamed for the war,
which -She considers due "to the Intrigues and
machinations of thc different political parties,
the Orleanlsts as well as the two extreme factions,
thc Reactionists and the Red Republicans, and
the French eagerness to win hack the prestige
which hart b?en lost by their government In ?sco."
She dcules any rudeness to thc Kin? on tho part
of Count Benertetti. or any -desire of Napoleon to
pick a quarrel. White declaring that future se?
curity demand- certain guarantees from France,
her Majesty exclaimed : "God knows that tho
thirst of couquest has no share in the decisions
or the King and bia advisers;" and while defend?
ing thc courtesies shown Napoleon, she denied
the reports that h? ls to be restored to thc throne,
She paid a handsome tribute to the dignity, pru
dence and tact shown by the Empress Eugenie
since her exile.
The Senate onU General Lee.
The debate in the United States Senate
on the resolution of Senator McCreery, of
Keotuck}-, instructive lesson though it be,
will awaken in the breast of every sober
thinking Southerner as ruuch of regret as of
irritation. It was proposed tbat a committee
ire appointed to inquire whether General
Lee had any right or title to the Arlington
state, which made it liable to forfeiture on
?ccount of bis participation in the rebellion,
ind it was desired that tbe estate be re?
stored to Mrs. Lee and her children, if it
yere found that the property was theirs
done. There was no evidence of a desire
>n the part of Senator McCreery to lure
Congress into even a tacit approval of the
?ause of secession. It was merely asked
hat thc Arlington estate might be returued
o its right [ul owners, if it were known to
lave be on wrongfully taken away from
hem. S 3nator McCreery did, as he might
>roperiy do, eulogize the virtue, thc valor
md tho, military genius of our Great Cap
ain; nor did he go one step too far in de
nanding justice for the noble Virginia ma?
r?n, who belongs to a race fond of bestow
ng a charity which poverty cannot force
hem to accept. But theSenate took alarm,
ind the mildest words spoken on the Radi
:al side were those of Senator Edmunds,
vho avowed his regret that General Lee
lad not died in his youth, or in his " patri
. otic manhood," or by the hand of the exe
Senator Morton branded General Leo as
he " great sinner;'' Senator Scott 6tigma
ized him as the "chief conspirator;" Scna
or Nye denounced him " a traitor;" Sena
or Turner was willing-as the whole South
3 willing-to hand General-Lee over to
' the avenging pen of history." It was to
ie expected that a body which, with ghoul
3h glee, could revile and insult thc foremost
nan of his timo, should boast of " the
"unparallelled magnanimity" which prc
ented it from according to the dead hero
md his family the impartial justice which is
he right vt the poorest and humblest citizen.
This Lt is which causes us a deep regret
sortheru statesmen, Northern journalists,
Northern citizens appeal to the South to
lury the past and unite with them in defend?
ing the common country, and in mnintain
ng and increasing its prosperity. General
J. F. Butler goes so far as to indulge in the
relief that the old Confederates are unxious
o fight once more under the Haunting flag
rf tho "Union. And these appeals have not
reen without effect. We have tried, and
iro trying, to allay animosity, and to show
?y our conduct that we have an interest in
he whole country, and are rc-ady to march
vito the East and the Weat, side by side, in
he paths of amity and peace. There is but
me reservation. The Soutii cannot, and
.viii not, efface from her loving memory the
jnseltlsh soldiers, bone of her bone and flesh
af her flesh, who gave up their lives during
tho war between the States. And what the
South cannot do herself, she will not coun?
tenance in others. Wlntl we ask is that our
dead brothers bc permitted to rest in peuce;
that, there shall be no contumely for those
who fell-no upbraiding for those who sur?
vived the carnage of the years of blood,
identified with the mimes of Jackson ?Ind
Lee, Jenkins and Gregg, Johnston and Bee;
no reproacli upon the ten thousand South
Carolinians whose blood incarnadined tho
Bands of the coast and thc forests of the
Carolinas, as well as the historic fields of
Virginia. Only silence! This was not much
to ask or expect.
But the Senate of the United States mocks
at onr sorrows am', jeers at our bereavement.
The gravo senators heap scorn and abuse
upon the head' of him who was the repre?
sentative Christian soldier of the South.
They declare that a bald suggestion that
plain justice be done to him who was just
and merciful to all, is " insulting aad shock
" ing " to the seose of " the Senate and the
"country," and is, besides, "abhorrent to
" humanity." Is this charity ? Is this mag?
nanimity? Is this patriotism? Is this the
way to soften the hearts and win the confi?
dence of twelve millions of people who rev?
erence General Lee as a gentleman without
a stain, and a soldier without reproach ? We
say, emphatically, that while Congress talks.
in this strain it is impossible that the coun?
try should be united. It is impossible that
any Southerner can have a tittle of liking or
respect for men of the stamp of Sumner and
Davis, Morton and Scott. They draw the
lividiug line between us and them. They
must make atonement ere they eau clasp
hands with auy soldier of the South.
And yet wc hope ! Wa hope that these
malignant politicians do not represent the
wishes and thoughts of the intelligence and
rirtu? of tbe Northern and Western States,
tc is possible, as we know by sad experience,
for a wnole people to be misrepresented and j
betrayed by those who are, in name, the
juardiaiis of their welfare and the exponents
>f their opinions. We appeal, thou, from
,he senators to the legislativa bodies which
ilected them, and from thoso bodies to the
niliions of Americans who know what man
lood is, and have no sympathy with shuffling
enegade or political buffoon. The Sonth,
vo tell them, can be won by justice and rc
pect, but it cannot be won by slander and
It does not become us to- declare motives
ir to judge unheard; but this we know: the
lebate in the United States Senate, on Tues
lay last, must chill the hearts of the South,
md rekindle in the popular mind, for a time
,t least, the bitter memories which, it was
oped, might sleep forever.
THE characteristic debate in the Senate
pon the attempt to oust Senator Corbin, is
leasant and instructive reading.
The Pay of the Llentenant-G?vcrni
The Stete Sedate h?ve passed a bill givi
the Lieutenant-Governor a.salary of twen
fire hundred dollars a year, In addition
the "ten dollars a day while presiding 01
"the Senate," provided for in the act of St
lember 26, 1868. This would make the to
pay of thc Lieutenant-Governor about $3?
a year-?.s much as is paid to the Govern
who occupies a position of extensive dut
and large respDnsibility, while the Lieuti
ant-Governor has no other duty than that
presiding over tho Senate.
This is not thc way to carry out the ri
ommendations of retrenchment and str
economy contained in Governor Scott's li
message. The ten ddflare a day and mi
age is an ample compensation for any in
vidual who occupies the purely ornamen
position of Lieutenant-Governor. There
besides, a serions objection, urged by t
Columbia Union, viz: that the increase
salary is unconstitutional, if intended to ha
an immediate efoct. The cousiitution (s<
13, art. 3) provides that "the Governor a
"Lieutenant-Governorshall, at stated timi
"receive for their services a compensatio
"which shall neither be increased- or dimi
"ished during the period for which til
"shall have been elected." The compem
lion of the -Lieutenant-Governor was fix
by the act of September 26, 1868, at len di
lars a day and mileage, while presiding ov
the Senate, and tho Uniom says, therefoi
that it "caunot understand how the Genei
"Assembly can, in view of this provision
"the constitution, increase the pay of eith
"the Governor or Lieutenant-Governor di
"ing the next two years."
