N : The , Yankee . PerHer.r;j: s ..
0d Saire who some years ago lir-
ed in the) town of W-
in Kew Jersey
was ''deaUi on pedlers ; and would not a
low one to , come in. gun sbo of. him if he
could help it. It so -happened that one
Nat Tucker, a Yankee pedler of the most
incorrigible kind, in dry croods- clocks and
other -'notions,"; chanced that way, and
haying heard of the aversion bf the Squire
to itinerants of his -class he looked: upon
him as fair game, and determined to sell"
some of his 'Wares and the old' man at the
same time. - 'Accordingly the first house he
drew: up at on enterimr the town was the
house of the Squire. It was at the close of
a warm day in July; and the old man sat
complacently smoking-' his pipe- under the
porch of his house. As 'Nat approached
him with a clock under his arm and a doz
en silver spoons in -his hand-the old man
majestically wared him off and at the same
time exclaiming:.-. ....
"Clear out! Don't you come in here I
don't want any 'o your tribe round me!: I
know you.". ' - 7 v -
VWal, I mus 'low,' squire,"'' said- Nat,
good naturedly Uhat you've got the advan
tage of me, ' for I don t know you, and I
guess your neighbors don't nu therefor they
tend me you was a. good; Christian, and
never turned a hungry man away from your
door.", : - -- - - ? ...
The coolness of Nat caused the Squire to
pause, for he was a whole-souled, hospita
ble man; he,'. began to think he might be
mistaken ' in : Nat's true "character. v. . At
length' he ' inquired,5 ; looking; the visitor
steadily in the face, "Answer me one ques
tion aint you a pedlerz " , y : - . - ' ,
"Pedler be darned no," said Nat. 1
"Then what are you bringing them things
in the house for ?" queried the old man
pointing to' the articles which Nat was car
rying. . v ::t ? ' i: '"
-"Wal, the fact is,' replied Nat,NI don't
much like to leave these silver spoons in
my wagon, ibr somebody . might make love
to 'em, and as 'for this ere clock, I couldn't
afford to lose it no hov for .it's jist one o'
the. greatest clocks out. .1 want a bowl of
bread and milk(nation bad, And if you'll
not accommodate me Til he v to go further,
and if anybody axes my opinion of yew,
in course 1 11 tell em how good you are to
This settled the matter, and IN at was in
vited in. The Squire's wife was out, but
the old" man soon . placed a bowl of pure
milk and some white bread before Nat, who,
laying aside the old-fashioned" 6poon which
the old man brought him, supplied its place
with one of his own and proceeded to "go
in" as though, he had fasted for a month.!
When he had about half finished his meal,
Nat remarked, as he- paused to turn his
spoon over, and eye it admiringly 'how
much better milk tastes out'n new silver
spune, than it does out'n old one I' 'Yes,
I spose it does' replied the Squire,, who
had all along been eyeing the remainder of
the sett, and wishing he was the possessor
of them, that he might astonish the old la
dy (who by the way was . given to strong
mindedness, that is, wearing the breeches)
on her return. . . .-.
yl got them ere spoons very cheap,' re
marked Nat again, as he swallowed a large
mouthful of the 'lacteal,' 'and I've no doubt
my Nance 'ill be delighted with 'em."
"I. 'spose you: wouldn't care about par
tin' ; with 'em, would - you ?" asked the
Squire, hesitatingly. '
"Wal, no,' I don't keer much about it,
answered . Nat, - 'but seein'- it's you I
mought, and I guess there's some more of
the same sort left, which 1 km git before 1
go hum. Tell you what I'll deu,: squire
if you'll give : roe them ere spunes of
yourn and seventy-five cents to bute, just to
pay me for my trouble, they're yours."
"Done 1" said the Squire," and ; immedi
ately he was put into possession of a dozen
plated spoons, for which he exchanged a
dozen solid, old-fashioned silver ones,- and
the boot Nat seemed to regret his bar
gain, and showed no disposition to take the
old spoons which the Squire laid in a bunch
before him, when the ' latter, fearing' he
might alter his mind, and demand his prop
erty back, left the room for the purpose of
stowing them' snugly away." '-: -
- A broad grin passed over Nat's face as
the old man disappeared, and- rising from
his seat, he approached one of those solid,
old-fashioned English clocks specimens of
which may yet occasionally be . met with,
whish occupied a position in one corner of
the room. Opening the door, Nat careful
ly cut the cords which sustained " the
weights, so that. the slightest jar would be
sure to part them, and then thrusting his
knife up undementh the face of the clock,
he clipped all the cogs hut one from one of
the wheels, closed the case' again, and had
just taken his seat when the Squire entered.
"Tell you what," Squire," eaid Nat, assu
ming a frightful expression of countenance
"I begin to vfeel bad 'fraid I'm goin' to
have one of them ' dratted fits which takes
me down sometimesl Yes, there it comes!"
he yelled and immediately after he jump
ed from his chair ' high enough almost to
touch' the ceiling and came down on the
noor wiiD a xorce tnat snook tne . Douse to
its foundation. ' ! , ' "
Bang t bang ! went the weights' of the
old clock, and. rickL- rick!, click! click!
soap! snap! went the wheels, till the Squire
was fairly dumb-foundered, and knew not
which to ..attend , to first, the old ' clock, or
Nat' who lay writhing upon the floor, w .
vThe scene, did not; last; long, however,
ibr Nat very speedily recovered,' and then
the Squire alluded to the . noise . which the
clock had made. r Nat examined it, and pro
nounced it worn out. He told the Squire
he had better either make a rat trap out of
it, or sell it to the - first second-hand furni
ture man that came' along. Then he inci
dentally and quite carefully " mentioned. his
own - clock,: and. comparing - it - with the
Squire's, pointed out the new improvements.

of which the old man 'was consumedly

worth about twenty dollars, for a ten shil
ling article. ; ; Nat now . thought it: about
time to travel, and accordingly departed.
He stowed the old clock, together with the
Squire's spoons carefully away in the bot
tom of his - wagon' out of sight, and started
but had - not gone far when he , met the
Squiie's wife of whom .he had managed to
get a full description, beth with regard to
her temper and appearance, returning home

: "Aint your name JSts. B.?" he inquired
as they met..:, , .-.-,;. .
; "Yes," said the'old lady, snappishly, ''nt

"Oh. nothing," replied Nat, "only I didn't
know but what you'd like to buy a few no
tions a pair of; scissors,, for instance.- I
stepped into your house yonder, and the
Squire, told me he had - broke yours since
you bin gone but he said he wouldn't buy
any new ones for you, and' you shouldn't

"Did he say that '"said the old lady, de
fiance flashing from her eyes. -
"He did so,", replied Nat, "and said you
shouldn't buy scissors or nothing else with
out his consent..
"It's all very well for him to talk that
way behind my back, but he wouldn't do
it if I was there."
- "I'll show him whether I'll buy anything
or not," she. continued determinedly, as she
immediately proceeded to purchase numer

dollars, all the money she had with her, af
ter which she proceeded: homeward boiling
over with wratb, and Nat proceeded on hia

The Battle of Solferino.
From the London Times of June 27. ' -".At
four o'clock r in the bright summer
morning of Friday last," nearly 350,OOOtn'en
stood on uod s green earth, to begin the
work of slaughter. For- seventeen hours
the multitude swayed to and fro .in mortal
strife; now here, now there, the 6urge of
battle rolled until night-closed in around
the retreating ebb. : As if hell itself had
broken loose, the peals of thunder from the
clouds which blackened the sky towards
evening, drowned the roar of artillery, and
the glaring : lightning flashed in company
with the fires of the cannon. Picture it to
yourself. '. i The gigantic Alps on one side,
the hills of Volta on the other,, the river
Chiese running on to the great plain of Man
tuai and in that narrow place 350,000 men
doing death's business with all the murder
ous implements ' of warfare.' : Our boasted
civilization : comes to .this rivers dyeing
with human blood; , stacks of. corpses . piled
upon' the plain; shouts 'of triumph and
groans of despair; men mutilated for life;
and misery, mourning and' desolation.-
Imagination toils in vain to realize the sto
ry of more than 350,000 men engaged in
mortal conflict over. an area the front of
which extended 12 miles. The common in
cident of a battle, the plunging cannon shot,
the devouring grape, the advance of long
drawn columns, tbe resistance of dense
masses, the furious charges of cavalry, the
sudden deploy into lines lengthening in long
vista, and meeting in stern and furious col
lision, bayonet to bayonet; are all in such a
mighty battle a3 thi3 multiplied . to indis
tinctness. We seek in vain to single out
the details of slaughter, and the mind hov
ers hopelessly over a mist of carnage. Af
ter sixteen hours of thundering sounds and
dense smoke, and shrill death-shrieks, and
the rush of squadrons , shaking the earth,
and the measured tramp of many thousands
marching to death, and of the. shouts of
muuuuaes in strong excuemeni, me mrmuu
subsides, and we are told that upon one
side alone 35,000 killed and wounded , are
stretched upon the plain. No eye can take
it all infor it extends beyond human vis
ion; no ear can hear it all," for tbe boom of
the cannon which tears a chasm through
the human mass at the wing, is inaudible
at the "centre; a single groan is lost in such
a chaos of butchery as this; we arrive at
the point where figures cease to have pow
er to increase our conceptions of multitude,
and where the highest force - of numeration
can go no further- than to overwhelm us
with a feeling of the wickedness of ambi
tion and tbe horrors of war." "

5 The death of Dr. Bailey will be widely
felt as a public, calamity. He, was one of
those men who mould and shape the age in
which they live. To no one is the cause of
freedom , and progress,, as embodied in the
Republican party, i more indebted than . to
him. .Clear-sighted, warm-hearted, gener
ous to a fault, frank in the , avowal ot Tiis
opinions earnest without fanaticism, bold
without temerity, uncompromising " yet
courteous and charitable,' a .gentleman al
ways, never stooping to personal invective
or controversy he has been emphatically
the man for his place and time. His views
were broad and statesman-like he could
not wear the badge of a mere partisan and
he held himself ready always to censure his
political friends whenin his view, they
were in the wrong,-, and to commend his
opponents ..whenever- they took, a step in the
right direction, , None'but those who knew
him wel,' and understood his social and
genial nature and 013 strong love of appro
bation, could estimate ' how : much it cost
him to maintain, ... under circumstances to
which a weaker man would have yielded as
to destiny, .his perfect loyalty to . truth.
What most impressed us in our intercourse
with him?was the total abserioe of all cant
cavil, or subterfugethe transparent honr
esty and Christian manliness of his char
acter. V,. . . . .. . , .
In that dark period when his press, in
Cincinnati, was twice destroyed by mobs,
and in the perilous excitement which at
Washington- followed the , capture " of the
Pearl with" its cargo, of fugitive slaves, his
courage never, faltered. With everything
he loved in'life at stakehe disregarded
alike the' menaces of enemies and the per
suasions "of friends, and refused to make
any concession or apology, and,- strong in
his conscious integrity, challenged the clos
est scrutiny of his words and actions. . The
future historian of the anti-slavery move
ment will find few nobler pictures for his
canvas than that of the 'slight figure of the
anti-slavery editor, alone with his family,
unarmed and unsupported in the heart of a
slaveholding city, calmly .confronting an
armed and excited multitude, declaring his
Idetermination to live and die a free man,

and fully, subject only to the laws of hi3
country; and closing with an appeal, at once
touching and manly, to the better natures
of his opponents, until threats changed to
cheers, and the really generous but misgui
ded populace pressed towards him, not to
maltreat or intimidate, but to shake the
hand of a brave and honest man. '
.Personally, we feel assured, Dr. Bailey
had no enemies. . His genial, hearty, health
ful nature, his ingenuousness, his delicate
regard for- the amenities and courtesies of
life, his ungrudging' admission of the right
to differ, his broad catholic charity, endear
ed him to a wide circle of friends, among
the warmest of whom were some who to
tally dissented from his views on political
matters and the moral character of slavery.
Many thoughts and memories crowd up
on us, but our heart is too full for words.
A true and good man has laid , down to his
long rest, after bravely .fighting, the battle
of life, leaving his mark . upon the age, and
a stainless and honored name to his children.
The world ' wherein belabored is better for
his sake. He will be greatly missed in the
coming sjrugle (Heaven grant.it- may be
the last and triumphant one!) of freedom
with slavery. But God is over all, and no
man ' 13 indispensable: u The broken ranks
will be closed, and younger men, who have
learned the lessons of liberty in the school
of our lamented . associates, , will take , up,
and carry forward to its .glorious consuma
tion, the great work to " which his life was
devoted. : ' ! J. G. W.

- A' war correspondent; dating from Bres-".
cia on the 24th of June, reports a fact wbich
has not hitherto transpired,, concerning the
scientific ( appliances of electricity to . war
purposes. ' It would appear that the remark
able precision and unity of the French": ev
olutions were accomplished by quite a nov
el sort of flying aides-de-camp, . From each
corps, once in a position, a .horseman rode
off to the next division, unrolling on his
rapid course a light wire, ' which ' no time
was lost-in adapting to a 'field - apparatus;
and the process was repeated , all along the
French line of twelve -miles. ,: Hence the
movement of the' whole army was . known
and regulated like clock-work, "from dawn
to dewy-eve," on that' decisive dayl This
arrangement had been planned in Paris and
a supply s of gutta percha -covered- metal
thread forwarded with secrecy and dispatch.
It has done its .work, and the patent may
now be 'disclosed. ' Portable galvanism
beats portable gas. It was already known
to both armies that a special telegraphic
corps operated in the-rear of the Allies, and
laid wires as fast as an advance was made.

: " .' Kossuth in Italy.
'-' From the London News, July 4.-! "
Kossuth; having arrived on the 22nd at
Genoa, proceeded on the. following day to
Turin. AH along the - way, on every . sta
tion, a crowd of Italians assembled to cheer
him;"a convoy of Hungarian prisoners'met
him at one place, and, recognizing the great
leader of their' country, shouted their iljens.
At another place a wounded Italian broke
through , the crowd; he had belonged, in
1848, to Col. Morti's Italian Legion in
Hungary, and wished to express" his delight
at seeing once more the arms of Italy and
Hungary joined.: At Asti the military com
mander himself .acted - as. bugleman ; . to .the
eheering multitude..- At Alessandria, Kos
suth had to . address the crowd in Italian,
After two long interviews with Count Cav
our at Turin, the Hungarian 'exile, in com
pany with a confidential- friend of the Sar
dinian Minister set out for Parma, to the
head-quarters of, Prinee Napoleon. Up to
Stradeila,. where the railway communication
came to an end the same scenes of enthu
siasm were witnessed as on the road to Tur
in; bu here, of course, the Italians lost his
trace.-,- -.5 ; -: -,:; ; .y. 1 ..-- .:
When he arrived, after midnight, at Pia
cenza, the guard at the gates received him
with a blunt, " Che dlavolo fate corsi tardi."
He could quietly go to a hotel without be
ing recognized.- - At breakfast, however, the
waiter brought the foreigners book to get
the names of the guests inscribed, and see
ing the name of "Kossuth," he rushed out
of the room like a madman.' Not five min"
utes passed, and all 'the.-thirty thousand in
habitants of Piacenza knew already, and as
if called together- by an alarm bell, they
rushed under his windows and shouted their
vivas with the heartiest" good '."will. - The
Mayor and municipality appeared in . his
room to offer their compliments and servi-;
ces. Montanelli also arrived, the respected
last Minister of Tuscany, who lost his arm
in 1848, fighting at Curtatone for the liber
ty of. Italy." . - "' . ;
The room is soon overcrowded with vis
itors. Kossuth must take a drive with them,
but as he comes down stairs the crowd rush
es to him, and kissing .his hands - and gar

At 2 o'clock P. M., Xossuth arrived at
Parma. The town was gaudily adorned in
expectation of the arrival of Prince Napo
leon. Kossuth's.-companion; having been
rocognized by. some . Italian standing before
the hotel, he asked, "Count Cavour f " Kos
suth said "No," when suddenly the eye of
the Italian lighted up; and he shouted '-Kossuth
! evviva Kossuth V In a few min
utes all the town "was alive with the news;
the crowds assembled outside the hotel; the
visitors thronged the parlor, and a guard
of. honor was placed before the door. The
Governor of the province' invited him to
his box in the theatre, which ;Kossuth of
course declined, since it was Prince Napo
leon who had to receive the ovations of the
people on that day, and Kossuth would not
divert the attention of the Italians. ;"
In fact, if sympathy alone could 6ave
Hungary, it would already be . safe, i But,
of course, the liberation of a country, re
quires something more. On the 28th, Kos
suth set out for the head-quarters of Na.
poleon, provided with letters of Count Cav
our and Prince Napoleon to the Emperor.
Take Time to Think.
Thoughtless labor is most unprofitable. 'A

thoughtlessly, and have each part fit itscor-.
responding part. . The woman who makes
your shirt has to "calculate has to think
while cutting it out.' It is not lost time we
spend in careful thought in planning our

certain causes. , If wheat is to be sown, let
us think of the preparation necessary--of
the mode of doing it, of the, profit of it.

--The Wheat Harvest. '
We could not imagine better weather fbT 4
the wheat harvest than we hare had since,
the commencement of July; and wa have .
faith to believe that as a whole, the harvest
of 1859 will be equal in product to any one '
that has preceded it, and that generally :
speaking, the grain is of excellent quality '
A letter before us from Tuckertown, N. J.
speaks of wheat fields in that State, which ,
has not the reputation of being first-rate .
for wheat, that wfH "yield thirty-five bush-'
ela per acTe. Texas papers ' are claiming1
that as the greatest State on the. Atlantic ;
side, the crop not only being great, but the f
grain in some instances weighing seventy
five or eighty pounds per bushel. " j
' In Pennsylvania, where it was not froet-
killed; the crop : is good, and eo it is in this
State and Ohio, which were the greatest suf- ;
ferers from the June frost. y -
In Delaware, Maryland; . Virginia,' North
Carolina and Tennessee, the wheat has been ,
harvested in good condition, and the yield
in the aggregate,- ir undoubtedly the beav
for many c years. The crops of Indiana,
Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Wiscon-.
sin and Minnesota are harvesting, and with
such weather as this, it will be saved in good
order; and from the fact that we hear so lit-;
tie croaking, we are free to believe the yield -
a large one. The present state of the weath-,
er, too, is extremely, favorable to the Cana- .
dian farmers, who have their harvest yet to
make; and from all that we have seen, we
judge it will be' a good one. ' In some parts '
of Canada, where, wheat is grown,- harvest
time is jet six weeks off; but ;in the ' great
wheat district of Canada West, it will come ,
cn this year by the middle of July, -
" For the crop we do most earnestly beg
our readers to select seed now, at harvest
time, of the best wheat in the field, or by
Vthe barrel process," that is, beating the
sheaves . lightly over a barrel, and . saving
what shells in that way, or else by careful
ly winnowing and screening out the largest
grains; and mind, sow early, very early, up
on well prepared ground. N. Y. Tribune.
Handsome ' Women to Travel With.
If it is in contemplation to spend several
days at a time in hotels in cities, or in small
towns, or to be a good deal in e team boats,
to do so-with the largest amount of comfort
and complacence, ' in consequence of having
the best things and the best places, the first
and best and promptest attention from land- ;
lords, clerks, and servants, travel with a
handsome woman. There is nothing like it.
No fairy wand will transmogrify things so.
Beauty "rules the roost" everywhere. It
commands everybody, from hostler to host.
You ' may yourself be nobody; you may
have a pug nose, a redhead; you 'may be a
perfect "duck" of a man so short and fat
thai you can't make even a respectable wad
dle; your face may be pock-marked; your
back may be humped; your shank a perfect
spindle, and your leg a bow only a mag
nificent woman along, and for ber sake you
will be treated all your journey through as
menials treat a roaster, as courtiers treat
their king. We have tried it, reader," in
our earlier years and later, and know its de
light; not bothering ourselves with any
over-nice discriminations, comfort 13 com
fort, whatever; may be the , motive from
which it springs. A diamond is a dia

Oct or Work. There is a mournful
truth, which many will appreciate, in the
following extract from "Bulk and Bears,"
a story just completed in the Atlantic Month- -ly:
' " " - ':'
"To a man out of employment, proscri
bed, marked, there is nothing so terrible as
the impenetrability of the close ranks of so
ciety around him. ' Every busy man seems'
to have found his place; each locks step "
with his neighbor, and the vast procession
moves on. Once out of the serried . order,
the unhappy wretch can never resume his
position. He finds himself the fifth wheel
of a coach; there is nothing for him to do
no place for him: at the bountiful board
where others are fed. He may starve, or
drown himself if he likes;. the world has
no use for and will not miss him." .

says that it once heard of a Temperance
Society, composed of twelve individuals,
by the rules of-which - three constituted a
quorum for '.'business," but it required the
unanimous consent of all the -members to
entitle any one of the Society to drink.
Very remently the members of this Soci

expel all the others and thus all the active
members ot tbe society concurring, they
would drink as much as they wanted and
then hold another "meeting" and re-elect
