. . . Pack Your Thoughts..
Do not assume that because you have
something important to communicate, it is
necessary to write a long article. A tre
mendous 1 thought may be -packed into a
small compass, raado as solid as a cannon
ball, and like the projectile, cut down all
Short articles are generally more effect
ive, ' find more readers, and are the more
widely copied than long ones. Pack your
thoughts closely together, and though your
articles may be brief, they will have weight,
and will be more likely (o make impression.
Ye who write for this busy age," says
a late writer, "speak, use 6hort sentences;
never 6top the readers with long or ambigu
ous words; but let the stream of thought
flow right on, and men will drink it in like
Ladies Should Read Newspapers.
It is a great mistake in female education
to keep a young lady's time and attention
devoted to the fashionable literature of the
day. , If you would qualify her for conver
sation, you must give her something to
talk about give her education with this
actual world and its transpiring events.
Urge her to read the newspapers, and be
come familiar with the present character
and improvements cf our race.
History is of some importance; but the
past world is dead, and we have nothing to
do with it. Our thoughts and our concerns
should be for the present world, to know
what it is, and improve the condition of it.
Let the young lady have an intelligent opin
ion and be able to sustain a conversation
concerning the menial, moral, political and
religious improvements of our times.
A Good Rule Works Roth "Ways.
Men should practice some little of what
they preach. For instance the merchant
who preaches encouragement to home en
terprise, should not get his hand bills print
ed in Cincinnati. Or if he does, he ought
to be careful not to allow them to be stuck
up with the Cincinnati imprint on them.
Not that the imprint does any especial harm,
but that it takes all the po'ut out of his
Agaiu, men who expect to make a profit
on the goods they offer for sale, should,
merely for the 6ake of consistency, allow
others alike privilege. To illustrate: When
a merchant wants a circular printed, for the
sake of consistency, he should not say to
us, "why, I can get it done in Louisuille or
Cincinnati at less than what you
charge!" unless, forsooth, lie proposes to
let us have goods at Louisville or Cincin
We make these remarks upon general
principles and under our general privilege
of lecturing, but if any reader finds the ad
vice applicable to his own case, we beg him
to accept it with our compliments. Were
we in charge of a printing establishment in
Louisville or Cincinnati, we 6hould make it
a point to do piinting as well and as cheap
as any other esteblishment in the same
city, but as we happen to be located in
Columbia, Tennessee, we prefer to regu
late ourselves to prices that rule here. If
any good people don't like it they have our
full and cordial permission to let it alone.
Wo are neither running a charity machine
nor printing for Ciucinnati customers.
Those are our sentiments exactly.
Romance of War.
The Tallahassee Sentinel relates the fol
lowing: "During. the late war, a corporal in
Wheeler's famous cavalry, obtained a young
recruit for the company to which he belong
ed, who for nine months fought bravely and
endured hardships and privations which
would have dono credit even to the most
hardened veteran to have undergone.
At the baule of Bentonville, in North
Carolina, just prior to the surrender of Gen.
Johnston's army, the corporal was struck
in the head by a minnie ball, fell from his
saddle, and instantlv expired. The young
recruit immediately dismounted, and clasp
inf the lifeless form that lay on
declared that he was her husband!
The young recruit proved to be a young
woman who lived in North Carolina, but
who having been despoiled of her home by
the 'Great Eire Arson, had determined to

Letter from Jeeines Shivers.
From the Nashville Gazette.
The following leiter from "Jeems," the
son of our old friend lack Shivers, will, we
trust, again bring out the old man's views
upon the present elate of Tennessee poli
tics. It will be seen tbat Jeems is a chip of
the old block; but he is young and inexpe
rienced, and, from some passage in Lis let
ter, we fear, is liable to be seduced into
some Radical ways. His "daddy" should
look sharply into Jeems' associations.
Raccoon Hollow, Nov. 9, '66.
Mr. Jack Shivers:
Dear Daddv I hev not writ to you
since I settled, and I reckon youre a gitin

You know what, a pashion I got into

and wood uv dun il ef it hadnt a bin fur the

onbeknown whar thar wuz not a radikil tu

on short rashuns I settled rite here in this
holler & I thot I war outen the rech of
Brownlow an his niggerworshippin Squad,
and begun to feel happy like and wasent a
keerin a cuss fur nobody nor nuthin, when
I seed a movin objec a cummin rite a torde
me, & the jewhilikins it war a thing tu be
seed how my har got up an fluttered my
breth got short an my pulse got quick, an I
felt as 6treaked as 1 did at the battle of
Chickamorga it war about 4 & a foot
high an lookt fur all the world like a big
jug kivered up in broad cloth all but the
stopper it drawed itself rite up afore me
an squard itself an sez
"Howdy dew nabsr."
an as soon as I heerd this I noed I ware
dug up, fur it ware ole Wins hede binn
round lexioneerin with the niggers in my
beet fur Congris.
Afier axin about you an all the fokes on
the "Creek" hopui thay war all well an
harty an makin out well an had razed good
kraps an had no hog colery an 6ich like pa
laverin, he sed I ort to jine the radeikils as
they war almity strong now an a gitin more
stronger every dav. He sed the big C te
atwixt ole Thad S;evees an Andy Jonson
had come off an it war clere to every body
that Andy war whipt he sed Brownlow &
the legislater of Tennessee had past a law
stoppin the honest whiles frum votin an for

bin a workin fur a long time fur it, an had
dun as much dirty work as any man kood
boste uv fur the place.
Here he begun to look pitifull, an sez he,
Jeemes, I'm agwine to live ecouomikal this

becase he tuck sides with ole Thad, an had
turned his unofendin son outen the post
office, and war afeered him an his ares war

agwine to rent a house in Nashville this
sesshun an git old Dinar to k-ep it so he
kood liv cheap and respectable, an he was
agwine pardner with him in his enterprise
ef he dident git jealous, fur, ses he, Doogan

Here he looked at me outen the corner uv

But he sed Doogan had got mity partickler

Further Desperate Designs of the
From the National Intelligencer.
Being profoundly impressed with the im
portance of the struggle through which the
country is passing, and of the necessity of
preserving the results gained by its tri
umphs in the field, and mote recently at
the polls, the undersigned, a committee ap
pointed by the Soldiers' and Sailors' Union,
of Washington, D. C, do in their name
earnestly invite their comrades, the loyal
veterans of the republic, with all other
fi ieiids of the great cause of U nion and liber
ty, to meet in a national mass welcome and
council to bo held in this, the Federal capi
tal, on Saturday, December the 1st prox.
We ask your presence to honor and as
sure protection to the loyal majority in the
thirty-ninth Congress, in whom we recog
nize faithful guardians of our assailed in
stitutions and able supporters of the piin
Oome in your might! By your presence
show how sternly loyalty can rebuke trea
son. Prove thereby tbat the threats and
insults of a treacherous executive against
the legislative branch of the government
do not intimidate a free people.
Here in the Federal capital must our
great struggle culminate in wise and equit
able legislation. Here, then, should we as
semble to encourage and strengthen Con
gress to whose hands the constitution
wisely entrusts the power to such just ac
tion as will make peace permanent and liber
ty permanent. D. S. Curtis,
It. J. HlSTON,
A. J. Bennett,
W. S. Morse,
L. Edwin Dudley.
Correspondence is invited and may be
addressed, R. J. HintOD, Washington, D.
We are pained and shocked to announce,
from many sources of reliable information,
that the above call looks to the establish
ment here en itermanencc of an organized
force, to be subject to the orders of Con
gress. What they may be, and what ca
lamities impend over our beloved country,
heaven only knows. But the ferocious
counsels of Butler, Wade, and Forney may
be carried out by the "sword, smoking
with bloody execution."
We are reminded by this of the threats
once made by partisans in New Yoik, to
organize an army of ten thousand men to
encamp upon Capital Hill, to overawe the
administration of Andrew Jackson.
"I vants to 6chhipp in the Lucilla,"
said a Dutchman to a clerk in a shipping
"Well," said the clerk, pen in hand,
"that's your name?"
"It is Hans Vanasmananderdaunse ?ance-meodeymitechei'.enschupbeyldsdtenclieren-tyentromp,"
said the Dutchman gravely.
"Zounds!" cried the clerk, "do you know
what it ia in English?"
"Yow, ich doesh," said the Duchman;
it ish Von Schmidt!"
A Certain Indication. Take a string
that will reach twice round th neck of a
young Udy; let her hold the ends in her
mouth; then if the nooze wJl slip over her
i bead to the back of her neck, it is a certain
' indication that she ia married or wants to be.
To Young Men..
' There is T great complaint among our
manufacturers that they are uuable to pro
cure as apprentices intelligent American
lads. They are forced, in consequence, to
accept inexperienced and second-rate me
chanics to execute woik which requires
skill and intelligence.
Our boys do not like to submit to the
drudgery of mechanical labor, and give
four or five years to employment at mere
board-paying wages. It is an infirmity
with American lads .to pr.-fer the yard
slick, the study of Blackstone and the other
lighter professions of trade, where they can
support fine garments to that of the bronze
mechanic in his laboring uniform. We re
gret to learn this evil is inaugurated to a
great extent by Arrerican mothers, who
prefer to se their s.ns' retaking tape, mo
laaoe, t-pvoU of t'.r.. ; 1 : '. rat-traps, to
that of a respectable mechanic.
It is a fact that mothers and fathers are
not aware that nine out ot ten of the young
men who embark in the law and mercantile
business fail, and bring up in poor houses
or penitentiary, while seven out of ten in
the mechanical business succeed.
For the Pulaski Citizen.
(iI hud a dream which was not all a dream,
The bright sun was extincrnishod and the stars
Lid wander darkling in eternal space."
I could not sleep. Time drew near to
midnight and I drew near the corner. The
full November moon looked beautiful so
did the stars. Oh! moon
That giveth such a lambent lijrht,
That art the queen of love and nitrht.
Didst thou behold tho.se S dogs tight
That coon ?
I stood and gazed and exclaimed with
the poet: "Sail on, oh ship of Slate!" It
sailed on. I heard a noise. A solitary
pedestrian came slowly winding his way
adown the stony street of Second Main.
What was painted on his dark brow I
coul-dn't see. He oped his mouth:
"Wo-ho-wo-ho wope, sur!"
I marvled. He oped his mouth again:
"Heigh who wee who-wee- -who-ee!"
His voice was rich and deep.
Hark! what light from yonder window
shines?" He turned in. I've got a wo
man's curiosity. I followed.
"Thou comest in such a questionable
shape," he said. I had que6tionedbim not.
lie spake again:
"Is this a dagger which I see before me,
the handle before me hard?"
The clerk said it was a "cheesa-knife."
He looked aloft "But as for me,
"Gie" mo the light in woman's e'e!"'
It done him :,ood to say it. We both look
ed at the clerk, and then and there, "e'e
looked love to e'e," which spoke again.
Oh! love, thou art a power!
"Gio' me strong drink," he said. The
clerk gied him. I took a little for my
stomach's sake. We sang a song. 'Twas
"Father, come home."
The tears came in ray e'e it was so touch
ingly sad. Thirteen more came in. They
talked of cotton and looked bad. Their
ages were from nine years up to a hundred.
Each said he didn't drink, but all took a
little. They seemed a little excited. Ona
stirred his sample in the glass and drank it.
Ones hand trembled so he spilt hisen. One
says "We are drinking thirteen pounds of
cotton." I dident think so. It looked like
whisky to me. One eafd 'twas bound to
go up another said 'twould go down, cer
tain. Both were right. It went up and
then went down. My friend got restless,
and sweetly said
"Gie" me the light so pure and bright,
That beams in woman's e'e;
Let ithers praise the starry rays,
Iler e'e'a the light for me."
I differed with him. I like -ey best. We
eyed. We went on the street. My friend
"Oh! Luna, thou art the moon!"
I said "bully." We walked united.
"United we stand, divided we fall." That
was what old, Spoon Butler said. The stars
shook. The papers said they'd fall. We
considered the source and feared not. We
went to bed.
Confound the Yanks! They tore up the
country mightily. They tore two holes in
my blanket. Friend got his head through
one. So did I. I thought we were a yoke
of steers. So did he. We dident gee well.
Friend looked at me and said:
"Gie- me the light of woman's e'e'."
I eaid "Give me liberty or give me death."
I got liberty.' The old split. We sank to
rest. Friend dreamed bad dreams.
Thought Brownlow had him. Friend tho't
he had the itch. I epoke not 'twas my
bed. My soft dreams wera slumbers.
Friend talked in hia sleep. He said-
'Gie me the light in woman's e'e'."
I said "Give me some water." More we
saith not. Morning carne.
My friend's e'e was Red.

Important to Rusiness Men.
The following from the Pittsburg Gazette,
a sketch of a business bouse ia that city,
admirably illustrates our views:
"In a brief interview with one of our
most liberal patrons, a few daya since, we
inquired his experience in the policy of ad
vertising. We regard his answer aa note
worthy, and commend it to the considera
tion of others. He said the same kind of.
business in which he ia engaged had been
carried on at the same stand for ten years
by one, and nearly ten years by another prs

The Corn Crop.
The Fall season has come, says "Brick"
Pomeroy, and the glory of tLe corn fields
resemble the beauties of a New England
school marra after a ten years campaign
teaching nigger babies their ba-ba's!
Corn makes good cider. Two dollars per
gallon tax is now placed on corn cider, bo
us Western farmers can support the Gov
ernment. It is wicked to drink corn cider.
Rum is now made in New England. New
England patriots beverage on Rum. It ia
not a sin to drink Rum! The tax on New
England Rum is but fifty cents a gallon.
But it is all right to protect New England
and her choice beverage, for Rum, Tracts,
and all such are her best holt.
Let the farmer raise corn, for it is a good
thing to pay taxes with if you have enough
of it! And it is good to fatten hogs, nig
gers and bond-holders on!
An Editor Thanking his Stats.
Mr. George D. Prentice, senior editor of
the Louisville Journal, acknowledges the
sympathy of the press during his recent
illness, in the following felicitoas manner:
"Our heartfelt thanks are duo to very
many of our brethren of the press for their
kind notices of us during our late illness.
Their sympathy s-.othed and cheered us.
It seemed to throw a calm and lovely light
upon the world, and make us wish to linger
still among our fellow men.
"There is much that ia beautiful and holy

Mr. C. L. Vallandigham, referring to the
proposed attempt to impeach the President,
"But no matter; let me warn all con

this intended deposing the President, wilL
