A JUaaca in Brief.
Only a day or two ago a strange case
presented itself at tbe ToombsMnTKew
York: A woman of about fifty-fire
years of age was arrested in Centre
street for excessive drunkenness, and
was borne in a totally unconcioas state
to that Egyptian structure. She was a
wretched aad painful looking spectacle;
ber attire soiled and in tatters; ber face
bloated and frightful with the traces of
'long indulgence of ber base passions.
'Still, when she was comparitively so

and an intonation tbat indicated culture
and good breeding, and evinced through
all ber squalor and decadence a famili

born and reared in New York, says he
questioned her closely and discovered
she was the daughter of a once wealthy
merchant; that she married a physician
of prominence nearly thirty years ago;
that he well remembers the evening of
her nuptials on Bleecker street, on
which happy occasion the beauty,
wealth and refinement of the city were
assembled at her parents' elegant man

few months tbe villian deserted her.
and after leading a life of intrigue and
dissipation at Paris.Berlin and Florence,
she returned to this country as the mis
tress of an artist she bad encountered
For several years she had been in the
habit of essaying to drown her sorrows
and remorse by the use of stimulants,
until the habit became so fixed she could
not conquer it. In one of ber periods
of intoxicated phrenzy she abandoned

with their "spiritual brothers" over the
rich wine that sparkles brighter at mid

the gorgeous chambers of Fourteenth

View of a Returned Rebel Soldier.
A very respectable resident of the
Third Congressional District, who re
cently returned from the rebel army,
remarked to a Union friead.after listen
ing to a stirring speech from Col. W. B.
"The Union men are not half as bard
upon the rebels as we intended to be
upon you, when we were in the South
ern army. Col. Stokes is not a bit har
der upon us than we were against-you
one year ago. Wc did not intend to
let S:okes or any other decided Union
man vote at all. We talked that matter
over often in the nrniy, and every body
except the Union conscripts, agreed
that the "lories" who stood up for the
United Stales against the Confederacy
didn't deserve to vote, and shouldn't
vote. So I can't think hard of you
Union men for wanting to keep us who
have been rebels away from the polls,
for it is exactly the way we meant to
treat you. I don't want to vole until
1 have satisfied jou that I mean to be
a peacable citizen and to stand up, after
this, for (lie United Slates Government.
And when we came out of the Southern
army, none of us expected to vote, and
hardly any of us n anted to vote right
off. If the copperhead politician1;, and
uic reoeis who nne Main ai noie, wvj

giving up so soon, and not holding out

who tell me I have a right to vote,

This conversation was related to us
by one of the most respectable, influen

Cast A Line for Yourself.
A young man stood listlessly watch
ing some anglers on a bridge. He was
poor and dejected. Atlast.approaching
a basket tilled with wholesome looking
fish, he sighed:
'If now I had these, I would be hap
py. 1 could sell them at a fair price,
and buy me food and lodgings.'
I will will give you just as nnny
and just as good fish,' said the owner,
who chanced to overhear his words, if
you will do me a trifling favor.'
'And what is tliatP asked the other
'Only to tend this Hue till I come
back, I wish to go on a short errand.'
The proposal was gladly accepted. !
The old fisherman was gone so long
that the young man began to be impa
tient. Meanwhile the hungry fish
snapped gretdily at the baited hook,
and the youth lost all his depression in
the excitement of pulliug them in, and
when the owner of the line returned,
he had caught a large number. Coun
ting out from them as many as were
in the basket and presenting tbem to
the young man, the old fisherman said,

have caught,io teach you, whenever you
see others earning what you need, to
waste no lime in fruitless wishing, nut

Only about 1,700 deserters from the

In the summer of 1863, while Gen.

Ky., some of his friends presented him
with a horse. The Hungarian was
highly elated, and replied to the presen
