^queetion-are you alive to day? We con?
gratulate you if you arc quite able to an
s,wer the question. The thermometer at
92 degrees in the* shade, is no favorable
sign of a cool, comfortable condition of
the atmosphere. Under such a pressure of
licat, it is mere impertinence to counsel
you to keep cool. But, we believe that we
can safely counsel you to keep veil, with?

There, the solicitude, when one meets his
friend in very hot weather, is expressed in
n query which is sufficiently homely for
the commonest understanding. You meet
your friend each day, and as you encoun?
ter, the question is put by both voices,
each taking his neighbor's hand, and look?
ing into his eyes with most tender solici?
tude: "How do you sweat 'to-day ?" The
inquiry is a coarse one, no doubt, but it is
full of meaning. If it cannot be answered
satisfactorily-if the skin of either, that
day, is dry and sluggish-if the pores have
not done their duty in the case of either
the other hurries oil, and, as an act ol
friendship, calls in the undertaker, who
measures his friend for li 13 coffin. He is
supposed to need it in the next twenty
four hours. Politeness requires that, il
we ask the same question, we use a differ?
ent phraseology. We may even put it
"Do your pore6
Keep open doors?"
If they do not, 6ee lo it directly-move
briskly, and get into a perspiration with
all possible speed, that you may answer

Gen Johnston Taking Leave of bia
A correspondent of the Newport Herald,
writing from Greensboro, N. C., gives the
following interesting account of the clos?
ing war scenes of that State:
This morning, Gen. Joseph K. Johnston
broke up In's headquarters near this place,
and bade farewell to the members of bis
staff, except his personal aids, and pro?
ceeded to Charlotte. The scene was an
affecting one, und all who witnessed it
regarded it in that light. In thc midst of
a wood ut a distance of two miles from
Greensboro, were a few tents, some wagons
and a number of horses. No longer was
no bustle and excitement; no hasty utter?
ances and startling exclamations; none of
thc liveliness pertaining to active field
service. The countenances and actious of
both ofiicers and orderlies bespoke au oc?
Soon after sunrise, the General and staff
rose and partook of a frugal meal. A Camp
chest served them for a table, and thc
ground was used iu lieu of chairs. The
dishes were not of China, nor were the
spoons and forks used of silver, but both
were of the inexpensive kind. Their meal
over, their appetites appeased, orders
I were given and received, the tents struck,
! personal property packed, the wagons
I loaded, and everything got in readiness to
j be moved. This accomplished, the Gene
i ral gathered his stalf around bim and
made a few remarks. He thanked them
for their services, the aid they had ren?
dered him, and hoped the future would be
brighter than the 'present and the past.
Few as the words and actions were, the}- I
embraced the parting scene. By noon the
wagons moved, and the General and those
of'his stall', who proposed to journey his
way, placed their horses and baggage on
the cars and 1-ft for Cnarlotte; and as they
did so, the headquarters of the Confede?
rate Army of the Tennessee Ceased to have
an existence-commencing its journey to
history and prosperity.
Gen. Johnston in manner is dignified
and affable; in conversation easy and
agreeable, and in personal appearance
attractive. His ability as a soldier aud a
scholar is eminent.
Just before the General went awav, I
asked one of his aids if bc would go home
after reaching Charlotte.
"No.'' was tile reply.
"Why?" I again asked.
"Because," replied the aid, "he has no
home to go to."
The conversation turning on money, I
again asked the same stall' officer it he
had any. He answered ia the negative.
; "'i .K-ti whet ul i jo J ail g vi Hg lo do for ?
j some?" 1 asked.
I 'That is what puzzles us," he replied;
j and no doubt not desiring to converse ou
a subject unpleasant to bim, he walked
