- The 'Atlanta ( Ga.) .Va says: "There 13
too much idleness in this country. It is
breeding vice and immorality. It Is filling
our jails with criminals. Crime lias been
on the -gradual increase for six months.
This comes of idleness, and idleness comes
in a great mesture of that abominable idea
that a white man cannot' be a gentleman and
work. He must get money, for thai, is in
dispensable. But how? That is it.
Young men have not the disposition to work
and by patient economy secure a basis for
business operations. . This leads to temp
tation, and temptation to crime. Hence
we have murders, horse thieves and breach-,
es of trust..'
r f...r what
whole of life, look at its tad. Consi :et?
when that comes, in what yon. will put
your trust. Not n the bubble of worldly
vanity it will be broken; not in worldly
pleasures tney will be gone; not in great
connections they cannot serve you; not in
wealth you cannot carry it with you; not
in rank in the grave there is no distinc
tion, not in the recollection of a life spent
in a giddy conformity to the silly fashions
of a thoughtless and wicked world; but iD
that of a life spent soberly, righteously, and
wisely, in the present world.

Women Their Education, etc.'
Women, as a general rule, are not useful
ly educated in this country. - Thev-are
chiefly taught those "accomplishments"
which the experience of their mothers has
proven to De oeet calculated to "attract
young men, nd consequently -to insure
Music, dancing, French and Italian, are
considered indispensible to the "finish." of
any young lady, in these degenerate days,
but the more solid qualities which, in the
olden time, were esteemed so necessary in
the female "catalogue of charms in the
"2ood old times" are out of date.
The woman who, not many years a.
when good 6ense and good manners reigned
supreme was a non-proficient in the culi
nary art, and inexpert with her needle, was
deemed an unfit candidate for matrimony
If she could not make a rare pie, dish up a
meal in'peculiary attractive style, turn out
a superior loaf of bread, knit a pair of
stockings with taste, and sew up garments
with exemplary celebrity, she was 6hunned
by the male sex, and pitied by her own, as
sadly defective." But now,' tend eel 'a est
change! The woman dextrous in tuch per
formances demonstrates her own unfitness
for position in the world of "fashion."-
Husbands are supposed to live upon the
sound of a piano, and to be ready, in the
most distressing moments, to go off into bar
tnonious ecstaciea at the fir6t intimation of a
brilliant duett." They ara prefcumed lo b
totally indifferent in respect to wbat'they
eat or wear to all substantial comfort to
have a-noLh--contempt jor 8UCb. things as a
well don vu thirt to contemplate a woman
too imaginatively to suspect her capable of
a knowledge of anything but the toilet and
belles le tires. - .
With this ;lesl conception of the rharac
ter of a liaoand in their minds, young
ladies necessi i'y aim only at the acquisi
tion of corresj ending qualifications. They
aim at sentim ntality and romance, instead
of Eubstaniial aomnion sense and permanent
useful inform ition. The result is, an exu
berance of sa isfaction" during the halcyon
days of courtship, and the saccharine hours
of the honeymoon; but when the "angel of
a wife" eufcsHes, in a short time, into the
iocs: -hVmestic. partner, and the "love
" J.io'oa--" d.-nerates into the satiated
ofv.' q house, then comes a season of
remorse, of melancholy,f mutual reotiuii
nation and mutual animosity.
Should fate make such a wife a widow,
and necessity throw her on her own re
sources for the support of herself and fami
ly, unhappy, indeed, must she be in her
destitution. Her extensive accomplish
ments will neither provide bread and cloth-
rin'r for her children nor consolation for
Music will not silence the cry of hunger;
dancing will not exorcise the gaunt find
we call Want. Sorrow refuses to submit to
the siren 6ong of an affected mirth. Sel
dom can one of these wabted talents be
turr.ed, in such a dilemma, to available ac
count; and all the precious years invested
in the accumulation of these showy noth
ing, present themselves like so many
ghosts of mis-spent moments, but to chide
the past for its extravagance, and fill the
future with apprehensions.
WTho has not seen instances of just such
calamity? Whose experience is not fraught
with some such scenes of anguish? And
yet how slight an element of hope would
alter the picture how small a knowledge
of the business relations of life how little
an acquaintance of those homely arts which
enable the feeblest by their industry, spirit,
taste, or remunerative, enterprise, to com
pletely change the view, cheer up the de
spondent, add a silver lining to the cloud
of grief, and produce a vision of comfort, if
not of independence.
Why not, then, O mothers of America,
educate your daughters to a familiarity with
things useful as well as ornamental? Why
not o"hT why act make thenrpraciiCal, aa
well as interesting members of society?
For tho Pulaski Citixcn.
To my Bethany "Love lorn Lass."
I noticed in the Citizen an article from
your facile pen, describing an "annihilating
Ecene" at Bethany, over a mysterious letter
from Pulaski, of which you accuse me of
beinjr the author. I plead guilty. Learn-
ng from yourarticle that you, with the acu
men natural with country lasses, had de-
tected the object of the unique missive
to "dispel the illusion," "crush the bud,"
&o. I consoled myself w'th the pleasing
idea that J would be harrassed by no moie
of your importunities, and that you did
really intend o "worship from afar;" but
I am now convinced it was simply a "ruse
de guere," an "avaunt courier of another
attack upin the "master of society."
Therefore I indite you this epistle, though
I deplore the denoument, and sorely depre
cate the necessity of ignoring my dignity
in doinsr 60.
You were right in supposing that I meant
to "crush the bud." I adopted that plan
of informing you that your affections were
misplaced, in order to sheathe the acrimony
of the unpleasant intelligence. But I am
warranted in believing by your persistence
that you have been similarly employed be
fore, and that repeated ; rebuffs have blunt
ed your sensibility on the subject, and
that it requires something of this sort to
cause you to desist. So you may accept
this as your congt, anl forbear to make any
further advances in the premises.
This is my last letter to you, and I flat
ter myself I will not be compelled to under
go the trying ordeal of inspecting another
of your literary castles built of "lumber
from dead men's brains."
I admire your taste in preferring Pulaski
gentry to rustic simplicity, but solicit your
pardon in informing you that your aspira
tions are too high, and that your elevated
hopes are destined to meet with no fruition.
Reciprocating your good wishes in part-
in. I ber? vou to forget this affair. Let it
be like the "lost book of Livy," which
shall never be read. May you, with some
rural beau, have an early entrance into the
"sweet spanding circle" where the enubi
laus 6ky of earthly biiss will be adorned
with the garnatureof hope, and decked with
the blazonry of love. .
I remain yours without a heart to give

Jackson and Johnson.
The Philadelphia Age, urder the head of
"Strange Coincidence," furnishes the fol
Jowina: facts in the lives of the irro Teoneu
see Presidents; -
"Andrew 'Jackson was born in North
Carolina, emigrated to Tennessee, and was
elected President of the United States.
During his administration the' opposition
were wonderfully exercised because he
dared to remove men from office who op
posed the Government.
Andrew'Iohnson was also born in ITorth
Carolina, emigrated to Tennessee, and is
now President of the United States. The
opposition are just now wonderfully exer
cised about bis removing men from office
who are now opposed to the Government.
Philadelphia was the only great efty in
the Union whose municipal authorities re
fused to extend, hospitalities to General
Jackson on his visit to the West, and Phila
delphia is the first city whose municipal
authorities refused to extend hospitalities
to Andrew Johnson on his visit to the West.
But the people of Philadelphia turned out
en masse to welcome Andrew Jackson, and
by a decided vote at the polls sternly re
buked the municipal authorities for their
contemptible meanness. ' The people of
Philadelphia also turned out en masse to
welcome Andrew Johnson, and will ad
minister a rebuke to the present mun'cipal
authorities at the ballot box. Strange co
incidences Bometimes happ n in this wick
ed world of ours." '.' "
Another strange coincidence consists in
the names of the two Presidents. By sub
stituting Jack, the nickname of John, for
the latter in the rams of our present Presi
dent, their two names would be the Bame

A Eeturned Confederate
The Lynchburg Virginian, of the 11 lb
ult., tells the following story of the "last
The latest, and perhaps the fast to- com-e
returned Confederate wa3 in this city Satur
day, direct from the late enemy's prisons.
His experience since the surrender haa
been both eventful and tragic.
Soon after the termination of the war her
was,! with other prisoners, at Jonhson's
Island, liberated, but was not furnished
with transportation. Being without money,
he was at a loss how to get home, which ia
in Augusta county in this State, near Staun
ton. He, however, made his way into In
diana, afoot, and in passing through a town
of that State, went into a hotel, thinVi&g he
might meet with some one who would girer
A number of men were at the wr, drink
ing, ar&oDg tbeia a Federal ofUcer, whawaa
talking aboot the war, and among other
things, said that he had taken an oath to
kill every one of Ashby's men he ever met
Without stopping to weigh the conse
quences our returned hero spoke up, on the
impulse of the moment, and said he wa
one of Ashby's men.
The officer at. once drew a pistol and
fired on him three timea, each ball taking
effect; but not in vital points.
The Confederate, like a wounded lion,
rushed upon him, wrenched the weapon
from his grasp and shot the officer dead
with a remaining ball. He was then ar
rested and thrown into prison, where he
suffered long months of confinement, and it
was only very recently that he was brought
to trial, which resulted in his final acquit
tal. He then started again for home, and
reached here Saturday morning by lh
Tennessee train. He stopped at the Nor
vell House, where he was recognized by
gentlemen who knew him and vouch for
his respectability. He also had with him a
copy of the records in the trial properly
authenticated, corroborating bis statements.
He was furnished with assistance and start
ed for bis home Sunday morning.
This last retured Confederate's name is
Simpson, and he was a member of Ashby's
command, while that knightly chieftain rode
his wondrous rounds, and was the first to
reach his noble form when he fell. Tl.ua
has perhaps the last "rebel" in gray come
back to his home, save the long, long list
of those who sleep in the bivouac oi tho
dead, wno will retain never again to iha
homes for which they fought so well.
An Aggressive Party.
The New York Sun, under the head of
'Impeachment next," thus traces the de
mands of the Radicals:
At first they only required the preserva
tion of the Union; then they demanded
freedom for the slaves; then they wanted
certain guarantees for the protection of
the freedmen, and soon, until they reached
the present point, when they require the
South to confer the suffrage privilege upon
It is somewhat doubtful what position
they will next assume, but we shall not be
greatly surprised to find them following the
leadership of Wendell Phillips, in demand
ing the impeachment of President Johnson.
Phillips is the real leader of the Radical
party, although he is usually a few months
in advance of the main body. He was the
first to cry out for emancipation; he was
the first to demand suffrage for the freed
men, and now he is the first to declare in
favor of impeaching the President.
Does any one suppose that the Radicals
would be content, even if the constitutional
amendment were adopted by every Southern
Slate? Is it supposed by any one that they
would then be willing to accord representa
tion to the Southern States? No; the party
is necessarily aggessive. It must go on
from one degree of Radicalism to another
until it is stopped in its course, and then
its end will come.
The conservative people of the country
should ponder over and reflect upon this
subject now, for Radicalism, like a plant,
must either grow and strengthen or wither
and decay, and if the people desire to check
il before great mischief be done, they have
now no time to lose.

"Just put a piece of paper in your mouth,
chew it rapidly, and il will stop the bleed

paper, a?d adds, "doubtless any substance
would answer the same purpose as paper,
the stoppage of the flow of blood being
caused ao doubt by the rapid motion of the
jaws aoi the counteraction of the muscles
and artyries connected with the jaws and
nose. Physicians state that the placing of
a small roll of paper or muslin above the
front le:th under the upper lip, and press
ing bar Ion the same will arrest bleeding at
the not e, checking the passage of blood to
the art-tries leading to the noes."
