JEFF. DAVIS' DREAM.
Ono ikv. a short timo atro. while sit
tins in a' hotel in Richmond. Va., a to
tal stranger to every ono in tho city, I
took up a daily paper tor tlio purposo
of passing avfay an idlo hour, and for
my turther comtort, i soateu myseit in
tho recess of a bay windbw, and was
thus wholly hidden from tho view of any
ono who chanced to enter tho room, and
had but just becomo interested in tho
latest nows, when I heard tho door of
my room open, and tho footstops of two
porsons nnnroachtnc They seemed to
bo talkinc confidently tocothcr,, and
thought it my duty to mako known my
presenc.o by.sorao sign,, bo that I might
not hear anything not intended for my
ear, but on peering into the room, lm
agitio my surpriso when I recognized in
tho occupants Jeff. Davis and his traitor
Fnond, Toombs, ot vioorgia. 1 hesita
ted no longer, but settled mysolf back
in my seat and bent overy energy to
listen to tho conversation, which ,was
carried on in a, low tone.
iiut, said Toombs, JUr. Davis you
must not civo way to tho vagaries of
your brain. Como tell mo all about
this wonderful dream, and, my word
for it, you'll feel better after tho recital.
Davis, rising, turned the koy in tho
door, and resuming his scat close by
Toombs,, gavo tho following version of
tho dream that disturbed him : Said ho,
I had a party qf friends to supper lust
night, who prolonged . their visit to a
lato htfur., I ato' .heartily during tho
evcningjiand experienced a strangq lecl-
mg.ot heaviness beroro retiring. My
room, you know, is well supplied with
larco windows, and tho night being
splendid one, I.lay on, my back gazing
tl'ith diamonds, ' and ruminating on thq
destiny of tho Confederacy. How long
I continued thus, I know not, but steal
ing over my senses, as it appeared to
me, instantly' camo a clearer perception
of our causo from tho beginning. I
thought mvself in Washington, in that
same room whe'ro wo all. met that, night

templation by a low, deep, solemn voico,
close by my pillow, saying, "Jefferson
Davis Jefferson Davis!" This was
tho beginning. I started and looked
around to boo who it was that spouo in
thoso awful tones, and a cold, chill, of

At this point Jeff. Davis stopped talk

brow. Toombs remarked that it was
most wonderful, when Jefferson, rcsuin
ing, said, "i thought that my tall was
not sudden, but that I occupied some

saw the battlo of Pea Ridge, and al
most in tho twinkling of an eye, tho

and I folt that all was lost. Again the

Traveling what seemed to mo a groat

upon mo, and in a voice of awful depth
and hardness, said to me :

"As ho uttered these awful words my

passed out, and as they passed I caught

Brilliant "Women.
too brilliant for
mo:" ex
claimed a friend, whom wo introduced
to a very attractive young lady. "Too
brilliant?" wo echoed, inquiringly
Yes : tho woman that shines so much
can bo fit for littlo clso in this world of
dull utility." Was ho right? Do
men, as a general rulo fear, as well as
admiro brilliant womon i Aro they
content to bask in their brightness, but
not wish to possess them : It so, la
dies, thero is in this truth deep matter
lor your serious consideration.
A woman may bo intellectual enough
to sparklo liko a diamond. But, after
all, notwithstanding diamonds aro pret
ty things to wear in public, they aro of
very little ubo in tho house ! Thoy may
croate envy in tho breast ot a neighbor;
but will thoy awaken an honest lovo in
ono worthy heart ? Thoy may bo efful
gent in tho ball-room: but will they
ght up with smiles tho domestic circle?
Can you put a diamond to any of tho
common but necessary uses of thohouso-
lold i Will y.ou not havo to exchange
it for vulgar sixponcos and cents beforo
you can mako it availablo oven in buy
ing broad?
Then a brilliant woman, though a
erfect diamond among her sex, may
not suit tho possession of any but , such
man as can nltord to kcop her as a
uxury. it so, louics, never aspire to
jo diamonds. "If you "shino" at all,
ct it bo with a reflected lustro : and a
good husband, bolievo us, is tho best

It is a failing of human naturo to
forgot services rendered after tho timo
of' thoso services is past. This is cs
pccially tho caso in a progressive coun
try liko ours, whero tho prominent object,
of to-doy aro, by tho rapid march o
events, left small and indistinct in tho
distanco to-morrow; Tho luxuriant
vcrduro is already effacing tho traces of
combat and carnage on the battlc-nelds
of tho South, and thero is danger that
tho new interests and now carc3 that
havo sprung np under tho sunlight of
Peace, will in liko manner hido from
sight and memory tho deeds of tho men
who fought on thoso battle-fields, and

must not be. When tho soldier who
hn9 neriled his life to nrescrvo tho na
tion lays down his musket, he docs not
lay down with it ins claims on tho grat
itudo of tho nation he has saved. In
bluo uniform or in civilian garb, ho is
still tho samo whoso weary marches
campaigning hardships, aud perilous
combats havo secured lor us peaco,
country, and a home, ins claim re
mains as long as he lives and tho coun
try exists. Empty ovations and barren
thanks will not satisfy that claim. He
has earned tho right to live in comfort
and it is tho duty of tho public to seo
that facilities aro afforded him for that
end. Especially is it truo in tho case
of those whoso health and strength
havo suffered in tho cause. Thero aro a
hundred ways in which tho disabled or
entceblcd veteran can bo made a uscfu
member ol society, and at tho same
timo cam for himself an honorable
maintenance It should not bo left for
thoso men to painfully seek out such
means ot livelihood lor themselves, sub
jeet to tho rebuffs of cold-blooded and
ungratotui pcopio. Tho active and
philanthropic members of tho commu
nity should set on toot an organized
effort to obtain fitting employment for
them, and should do it at once. In
a few days or weeks at tho farthest
thousands of returned soldiers, many.of
them disabled by wounds and sickness
will be thrown upon the country to cam
their living in civil pursuits. If wo do
not want tho disgraco of seeing tbeso
men, liko Bclisarius of old, begging a
livelihood in tho country ho had saved,
an cltort to avert it should bo made with
out delay. In this connection wo quote
as appropriate tho following passage
from benator bherman's lato speech.
lio says :
"Ihcro is and will bo during our
generation, a class of pooplo whom wo
mu3t never forget. Their prcsonco will
constantly remind us of tho perils and
sacrifices of tho war. I mean our
wounded and disabled soldiers and tho
widows and orphans of thoso who fell.
Tho officers and soldiers will soon min
gle with our pooplo in tho old employ
ments of peaco. Their recollections
will bo tho basis of our history, and
will bo taught to their childron and
grand children, They will bo rewarded
by offices and honor. But thoso who
havo been disabled need moro. Thoy
should not only bo tho honored pension
ers of tho general government, but ovo-
rywhero should receive horaago, respect,
and aid of good citizens. Tho hand,
not of charity, but of affection, should
ever bo open to them. Ladies, you
;iavo honored your sex and your country
by your organized aid to our soldiers ;
now adopt tho widows and orphans ot
tho dead soldiers as your sisters and
your children. You rich farmers, with
your teeming barns and most beautiful
and, tako into your homes the children
of thoso who havo died in your service ;
adopt them, sustain them. Let them
bo taught to reverence tho martyrdom
of their fathers. Let us woavo all tho
memories of this war, all its sacrifices,
all its glories, its battlefields, and
marches, into ono great bond of patriot
ism, so that no citizen will hereafter
dare to raiso his hand in rebellion
against his country, and so that wo may
visit with overwhelming power any tor
eign nation that may seek to interfero
.T, . ... . i ,,
witn our progress or our policy.
The question is going tho rounds of
tho papers, how can seven-thirty bonds
bo kept safely without deposit with tho
bank : By filling up tho space loft for
the narao of the porson to whom tho bonds
is to bo paid, no ono clso can mako
use of Undo, Sam's promiso to p.iy. A
scyen- thirty bocomes as safe as an ordi
nary noto. Should it bo lost,. a duplicate
will bo issued on proper proof. For this
purposo, a memorandum of the number,
etc. , of tho bond should bo kopt distinct
from tho bond itsolf. Farmers and oth
ers will ilo, well to boar this fact jn mind.
THE HOUSEHOLD.
Silk articles should not bo kopt fold
ed in whito paper, a3 tho chlorido of
limo used in bleaching tho paper will
impair tho color of tho silk.
( To Preserve Flowers. As much
nitrato of soda as can bo held between
the thumb and finger, it is said, if
thrown in a vase of water, will prcscrvo
flowers for tho spaco of a fortnight.
Sweet Liquid Sauce. Ono tablo
spoonful of flour mixed smooth with
cold water, a pinch of salt, picco of
butter, thosizo of a hickory-nut, half a
cup of sugar, and a littlo maplo or other
syrup. Stir into this mixture hot water
enough to make a pint bowl of sauce;
boil all up, and grato in lastly a littlo
nutni'.'g.
Currant Jelly. Tho easiest way
is lo fill a jar with currants, and placo
it in a kcttlo of boiling water. When
tho iuico is expelled, strain through a
cloth, and to every pint add a pound of
white sugar, boil ten minutes, skimming
till it is quite clear. Black currant or
grape jelly can be raado in the earao
way.
FnriT pon Dessert. Boat the
whito of nn egg, dip tho fruit in, and
roll immediately in lino crushed or pow
dered sugar. Lcavo it several hours,
and servo with custard, loppercd milk,
or ico corn-starch pudding. Largo and
fair bunchc3 of rod and white currant3
mako a charming dish in this way.
Strawberries, cherries, or raspberries,
aro cither of them suitable.
To Clean Knives. A small, clean
potato, with tho end cut off, is a very
convenient medium for applying brick
dust to knives keeping it about tho right
moisture, whilo tho jttico of tho potato
assists in removing stain from tho sur
face. A better polish can be obtained by
this method than by any other we havo
tried and with less labor.
Hi'cKirncniiY Cake. Ono cup of
sugar, ono egg, picco of butter siso of
an egg, halt a cup of milk, ono tea-
spoonful of soda, two of cream of tar
tar, a tcaspoonful of any preferred es
sence, and sifted ilower to mako a stilt
batter. Tut cream of tartar in tho
flour, soda in tho milk and beat thor
oughly. Add last a pint of dried huck-
clbcrno3, and bako in a quick oven.
Ice Pudding. Boil ono pint and a
lalf of new milk with ono toaspoonful
of isinglass. Beat five eggs and mix
them with tho milk as you would for
custard3. Tako a tin mould with, a
cover, oiloil, not buttered, and lino it
with candied fruits, such as plums,
groen-gages, etc. Thcn.pour tho cus
tard in very gradually, so that tho fruit
will remain at tho bottom. Tut on tho
cover and bury tho mould in ice for tho
wholo day, only turning out the pud-
ing at tuo moment it is wantod.
Fruit Puddisq. Ono quart of flour.
two tcaspoonfuls of good baking pow-
mi , uuu ii muu buh. iui. io me con
isteney of drop biscuit, with cold mill;
or water, add two table-spoonfuls of
melted butter. Butter a mould or
small tin pail, and lay in it a layer of
tho batter, then a layer of any kind of
tresh small fruit, alternating them un
til the vessel is filled. Cover tight and
steam an hour and a half. Eat with
