have been soon nssombling, iu vory
mtiterious mannor, nttho eornerof Com-
moKial avonuo and Eloventb street. Each
h.iJ in his hand a horn, and upon hit fea
tures nu oxpteiston of llrmnofs that at
ono challenged attention. Tbo casual
obKorvor'hnd no trouble in drawing tbo
coaaiuslon that thoy wore bent upon n
hazardous or sorno other kind of nn onlor
A (tor thu tardy members and tho same
members nro always tardy bad arrived
at tlio placo of rondczvous, tho band, under
tho gallant leadership of Mr. Bobbins,
took up tho line of march towards the St.
Cbarlcs hotel, whero they arrived without
broken legs, although tto pasiago ovor
tbo un.gaillt sidewalks wai perilous.
Wo woro there, and had ascertained, by
pumping Judge Bross, thst tho purposo
of tho band was to serenado Mr. James S.
Barclay and bis bride, nnd Mr. Jewott
Wilcox, who bad, on that day, nrrlved nt
tho vencrnblo ago of forty-four years.
Whon tbo bjys put to their Hps their
horns, nnJ looked with innocent txpecta
tion nt tho bland Bobbins, for the signal
to blow, wo anticipated melody, but wero
horro.'-strlekon by thounmnlodious noises
that iisued from the horns and came from
tho drums und cymbals. Bobbins and
lloden ahriked, as if in mortal agony,
through their E Flat Sopranos ; l'hlllls
and Satip groauod through their E Flat
Tubas; Go'sman, striking in with a
scientific dlcord, grumbled through his
B Flat naritone at thu unmolodious Tubas)
Brofs, llnrnsidc and Wiloy, through tbulr
E Flat Altcs, quarreled with each other,
and donouucod tho E Flat Sopranos as
unmusical liars and tho llarilono ns a
diicordaut fraud; Smyth nnd McKeo,
through their B Flat Sopranos, began to
bicker In woak tones with ouch other,
grow louder in their wrath nnd llnally
denounccd nil tbo horns in tones Hko
tbesoof an old woman scolding an endur
ing chambermaid or a llshwuuian Hhriok
ing billlngsgalo on a busy market day;
Stiliwell, through his B Flat Tenor,
endeavored for a time to calm tbo strug
gling sounds and got them Into order, hut
6rolio down in tho attempt, nnd rushed
madly Into angry protestations ; and
thon the horns, nud Haitmnn's big drum,
nud Cornell's tenor drum, and Mason's
oyinbulr, nil fell Into n Jumtloand fought
confusodly for tho spneo of about three
mlnutet n battlo of horrible noises
when, nil nt once, tho confusion ended,
nnd tho tune of Annie Laurie came out
of the Sopranos, tho Baritone, the Altes,
tho Tenors nnd tho Tubal; the big drum
begin to koep tuno to it; tbu little drum
to roll It out of its calf-skin head and the
cymbals to clash it with n kind of joyful
ncss that gave melodious congrttulatlon
to Mr. Barclay anu nis orlile, and to tho
agu-worn Jewott Wilcox.
After tho band bad played a number of
tunos Mr. Barclay appeared at the door
uf tho Iiotul oflice. Ho has not been
married 11 month, but notwithstanding
this fact ho was Instantly recognlzsd by
his frlonds, nnd was grooted with great
hcnrtlnoss. Ho is not a candidato for the
legislature, but ho mado a spcoeb, a very
ncnt one, returning thanks for the hand
some complimoni that had been
paid . to him by tho band Mr.
Wilcox, with that always-genial smile
that ndorns his countonanco, also
appeared upon tho stngo his first appear
nnco in tho charactor of tho aged gentle'
man and thanked his friends lor tbe
part of tho blow tbnt had been intended

Whereupon, tho horn man (shouldered
their horns and went in search of llioir
peacoful nnd virtuous couchos, sometimes
vulgarly called beds. And so did we.

Mr. "Kditoh; As an act of Justice to

Tho person who reportod to Tint But..
Linn local the infamous falsehood contain

unmercifully bcaton my boy with a buggy
whip is I boldly assert) a Uw conlcmjtti'

landors the Inhabitants in tho neighbor
hood. Whon the Father of a disobedient
boy thinks proper to chastise him, If
icrami woro undoubted proot that a child
was hoing beaten cvucUy, 1 would accuse
seme of the persons (I don't say neigh
bors, for I bare nono) that llvo lu my
vicinity, or Intllotlug a cruel
whipping overy few hours In tbe day on
their youngest, an Infant uf some three
Now, I shall simply state tbo facte of
the case In order to convince tbo publio
that tbe author of tba statement can bo
proven a diabolical liar.
I have repoatedly forbidden my boy to
go near tbe river for fear of his bolog
drownod, and he had, time and again,
dlsoboyod me. I had tried several modes
of punishment, without eUact. As a last
resort, after waiting until about nine
o'clock In the ovening, 1 determined to
go aftor him, and whip him
all the way home, so as
ti both sbsmo and frlehten him.
I procured a small twig, about 2 feet
long a waier sprout ot this years
growth, and with r7in I whlppod him
homo, 1 have the remnant of the switch ;
nnd, If any one foels inclined to doubt
vty assertion, I can produce it; nils prove
that my ebild had not nor has he now,
one bruise or scratch to show that ho was
so terribly beaten (with that kueev wbln.l
I will only add, in conclusion, that I have
no buggy whip but could get one,) pre
Tided the author or tbe slander would say
to ray faes what he has had published.
As regards the "unenviable light in
which my neighbors hold mo," (heir
opinions are of little consequence te me.

Tho Alderman has, for a number of years,
been casting a longing oyo upon tho

Marxian ior the Lkhiulatuiik. The
Gaze tto of last Monday nominated Mr.
John Q. Herman, Esq., for tbe legislature,
in the .follewing oemplimentary para
graphs: Tho fact tbat.democratic successors to
Oberly and Lemma must be elected In
this eenutorial district, has excited no
nowspaper discussion, and but littlo at
tention in any quarter. It Is probable
that Mr. Lomma will bo his own succes
sor. He Is a man of considorablo ability,
or groat personal popularity, a progress
ive domocrat, and livos In a portion or the
district that may justly claim a represon
tative. Mr. Oberly, we are told, would
not accept the nomination if tondored.
Who, then, shall be Mr. Oberly's suc
cessor'' We take 11 mat, since Union
county has the senator, the right t name
the man will be ccnaedol to Alexander.
Wo take It for granted, furthermore, that
Alexender will not hesitate to name
John Q. narman, Esq. No man In tbe
district could serve tho people mare Intel
ligently and efficiently. He is a
gentleman of acknowledged ability,
of sound judgment, quick percep
tions and unimpeachable personal
Integrity. Clerk of the lower
branch of the General Assembly In 18U2,
and of the Constitutional Convention la
18C8, he has gained a knowledge of tbe
routine and processes of legislation, et the
tricks and Intrigues ef rings and commit
tees, and of the puzzling parliamentary
roserte of shrewd, but unscrupulous
members that would give him power and
prominence possessed by no ether young
members, and but by fow of tho old
It Is quite needless, however, to urge
Mr. Herman's fitness for the place, lie is
known personally and by reputation to
nearly every voter of tbe district, as a
man who has filled every public position
to which he has been called, In a manner
creditable to himself and satisfactory to
tho pooplo. Send him to the legislature
and he will not only know his duty there'
but will discbarge it faithfully, Intolll!
gently and honeillv, bo tbe censequences,
personal to himself, what tbey uav.
Wo second the motion of Tho Uazelto
Mr. Herman has nil much experience la
deliberative bodies, and would make a
vory useful mombor of tho lowor hone.
