In this city died, some time ago,
the Reutier, F. W. Rentz, Enten
market, No. 1,235, a well-known per?
sonage, born at Wesel. He was, in
many respects, an eccentric, queer old
man; always wore an overcoat and
large beaver hat, which he never
took off, even in a house; always
walked in the streets with a small
pipe in his mouth, one hand on his
back. He was well liked in company
because his memory was well stored
with anecdotes. He was a quiet citi?
zen, and did not give any provoca?
tion to any one-never was married;
iour feet six inches high, and.hunch?
backed. Whoever did not know him
thought, at the first glance, to dis?
cover a hunch on his breast, nntil
they learned that tho old gentleman
wore a long beard, plaited on his
breast. But a good many doubted
this story until, after his death, every
one could convince himself of the
truth. According to his last will,
the physician took off his beard with
the lower skin of his ohio, which was
tanned, and the beard, whica has
been well preserved, cleaned and
washed thoroughly, is now for show
at the above named house. The
beard is eleven and a half feet long,
and a half foot wide. Into whose
hands this very rare natural curiosity
will come, is not known yet.
The following comical story is told
.in the Prov News, Bremen, Ger
A shoemaker, who was called on
board on one of the steamers lying
in the harbor to take measure for
boots and shoes, was in the act to
.leave the ship, when ho saw an entic?
ing half-filled tub of butter on
-deck; and, thinking himself unob?
served, conld not withstand the
'temptation to take some of the va?
luable contents. Not having any
.instruments in his pocket, he made a
bold grasp with his hand and hid
the happy contents in his hat. On
the rapid approach of an individual,
in order not to betray himself, he
pnt on bin bftt-not caring foi tho
unhappy situation in which he would
be placed by longer staying. The
mate of the steamer, who had wit?
nessed the whole transaction, calls
the thief back, requesting him to
take his measure for a pair of boots,
just at the moment the latter was to
leave the vessel. After having in?
vited the shoemaker, for this pur
Eose, into the cabin, the mate asked
im why he did not put off his hat,
being in such au awful perspiration.
He pretended not to understand, but
the mate, calling the witnesses, he
was compelled to take off his hat,
and the botter, having been melted,
ran down thedeUnquent'shead, amid
the universal acclamation of the
crew: "Old fellow, how you are
perspiring!" In view of this fact,
the shoemaker was escorted, not very
ceremoniously, out of the cabin,
amidst the laughter and hurrah of

TO TUE FEOPLE OF TUE SOUTH'.
THE WEEKLY GLEANER-Devoted to
the rehabilitation of tho South in its former
prosperity-is offered to subscribers at tho
low rato of $1.50 for six months.
The annals of the American Republic
show no political campaign comparable in
tho magnitude of its issues and tho mo?
mentousness of its results to that for tho
Presidency, now pending. Indeed, the
very lifo of free government is on trial,
aud it will be a sad commentary on tho
capacity of the people for tho exercise of
that high trust if they, thc jurors who are
I to try tho issue, pronounce a verdict of
self-condemnation. If tho South has any
hope it is in tho success of the Democratic
party in the coming Presidential election;
and every citizen is vitally interested in
tho progress of the battle, and cannot
afford to bo without a sound and rcliablo
As an organ, not only of sound Demo?
cratic principles, but as a vehicle of ge?

commended to Southern support. A largo

an organ to disabuse tho Northern mind
ot the falsehoods in relation to Southern

poison the springs of Northorn feehng on
Southern subjects. In this view of tho
matter, no moro valuable aid to the tru6

the South can be rendered than by sub?
