You Know Hoeytis Yourself.
Dear Nellie. Sunday night. you know.
I hadn't much to say,
And yet 'twas twelve o'clock or so
Before I went away;
You saw that half the time I watched
The clock upon the shelf:
.Oh, Nellie ! how , wished you might
See how it was yourself
I wants so to ,tell you
What I've waited long to say,
)ut heart and spirit failed me,
My equrage died away.
Now, ]Nellie, only listen
You roguish little eli' !
I'm sure yop'd pity me. at least,
If you kpew how it was yourself.
Excuse me. Nellie, darling,
I've loved yvou long and well,
Then let me keep this little hand,
Nor all my hopes dispel:
I've loved you more than all the world
Can give of power or pelf-
But words are weak when hearts would speak;
" You know 'tis yourself."
I1cr lips but faintly quivering,
Her shy glamre upward thrown
I gently drew her to my side,
My beautiful, my own !
We sat there all the evening
"Twelve" came from the mantle shelf
The rest you must imagine, for
" You know how 'tis yourself !"
Ba.y~rd Taylor, in a letter to the X.
X'. Tºibupe fro; .Nevada, says:
In walking out with a friend this
morning, I came across a long beam
projecting from the gable of a house
directly over a deep ravine. There
was a slight platform under it and a
rope dangling from its end.
" What a fearful place this is for a
swing," I said.
"Yes, so it is," said my friend, "and
a man took a fearfiul swing there not
four months ago."
- How was that?" said I.
"Why, thus it was: A man shot
another in cold blood. He was ar
rested. tried, convicted, and sentenced
to be hung. He was known to be a
desperate vagabond, and an incendi
ary, and suspicions of many dark
deeds were upon him. His chances of
escape through executive clemency or
legal technicalities were considered by
many of our best citizens, who, on the
whole, concluded to make a sure thing
of it. They therefore went in a body
to the jail, escorted the prisoner to
this spot, and, after a solemn presen
tation of the facts in the case, they
told him to prepare for death, and ad
justed the rope around his neck. No
sooner was the knot secure than he
swore a- California oatllthat no coward
should have the glory of choking him
to death, and leaped down the chasm.
He came to the end of the rope before
he did to the bo)ttom of the chasm, so
choked to death at last."
This little incident is scarcely wor
thy of mention, it being an affair of
such common occurrence here, but, as
one of the ordinary phenomena of a
mining country, I have not felt at lib
erty to-omit it.
When Stephen Kemble was mana.
ger in Newcastle, Eng., and the houses
were rather flat, no less a personage
arrived in town than the Prince An
namboo, who offered his services for a
very moderate consideration. Accord
ingly the bills of the day annonced
" that between the acts of the play,
Prince Annamboo would give a lively
representation of the scalping opera
tion; he would also give the Indian
war-whoop, in all its various tones,
the tomahawk exercise and mode
of feasting at an Abyssinian ban
quet." The evening arrived, and many
people attended to witness these
princely imitations. At the end of the
third act his highness walked forward,
with dinifled step, flourshing his toma
hawk, and cut the air, exclaiming :
" Ha ha--ho ho! " Next entered a
man with his face blackened and a
piece of bladder fastened to his head
with gum; the prince, with a large
carving knife, commenced the scalping
operation, which he performed in a
style truly imperial, holding up the
skin in token of triumph. Next came
the war-whoop, which was a combina
tion of dreadful and discordant sounds ;
lastly, the Abyssnian banquet, consis
ting of raw beefsteaks; these he made
into rolls, as large as his mouth would
admit, and devoured themi in a. prince
ly and dignified manner. Having
completed his cannihal repast, lie
flourished his tomahawk, exclaiming :
-" Ha ha-ho ho!" and made his
exit. Next day, in the middle of the
market place, Kenmble espied the puis
sant prince of Anurniboo selling pen
knive.s, scissors and quills, in the char
acter .f a Jew pedlar. " What ! " said
Kemble, " my prince, is that you ?
Are not you a pretty scoundrel to im
pose upon us in this manner !" Moses
turned rouid and with an arch look
replied: "Prince ! I vash no prince,

A Voice friom Texas.
The Houston (Texas) nulon, of re
cent date, brings forth facts and doc
uments in strong array to utterly de
molish one of the many slanderous
charges which have been made against
Governor Warmnoth by the unscrupu
lous political tricksters who seek his
overthrow in order to gain their own
selfish ends. This sterling voice from
Texas will send consternation among
the Governor's opponents, for "truth
is mighty and will prevail," in spite of
their attempts to stifle or gainsay it.
We give the article complete:
AN EXPLODED CHARGE AGAINST GOV
We regret to see that our Republi
can brethren in Louisiana are not ex
empt from the evils that beset the
party in most of the other Southern
States. And while we know but little
of the immediate causes of the present
difficulties in our sister State, we may
venture the remark that there, as in
Texas, personal ambition and human
selfishness enter largely into the pro
moting power.* And so far as the
charges made by one party or the
other are founded upon transactions in
Louisiana, we can have little or noth
ing to say, as we are not familiar with
them. But when one of the belliger
ents calls his witnesses fiont Texas,
and relies upon testimony from this
State to sustain his case against his
umost-prominent opponent, it becomes
our duty as a journalist and leader of
the Republican party here to give such
assistance as will enable the truth to
Among the most prominent oppo
nents of Governor Warmoth in Louis
iana is Col. Geo. W. Carter, the pres
ent speaker of the House of Represen
tatives, and until recently one of the
Governor's intimate political friends.
Mr. Carter was formerly a resident of
Texas, and is well known to many of
our citizens of both parties. This gen
tlemen published a card in the New
Orleans Times of the 15th, in which he
charges Governor Warimoth with acts
committed in Louisiana, with which
we have nothing to do, and it is not
our purpose to allude to them. The
Governor and his friends either can or
ought to be able to refute them on the
spot. But he revives an old charge of
embezzlement against Governor War
moth, which was disproved and, as we
supposed, set forever at rest in Texas
We copy from Mr. Carter's card:
" Nor have I ever been indicted for
cotton stealing since the war. * *
My first acquaintance with this young
mnan was in 186(, when he brought a
letter of introduction to me and re
quested me to act as his attorney in an
indictment then pending in the federal
court against him for the embezzle
ment of public moneys, while acting as
cotton agent in Texas."
Now the fact that Judge Warm-oth,
as he was then known to the people of
Texas, was charged with the embez
zlement of public money, was well
known here at the time, for the rebel
papers of that day let no opportunity
escape to heap abuse upon any Union
mant, and more eslpecially one who had
served in the United States army.
Besides, the whole proceedings were
in tihe District Court of the United
States at Galveston, and remain to
this day a matter of record. There the
case stands--the accusation, the reply,
and the proceedings which speedily led
to the dismissal of the case on account
of being entirely groundless. We have
been at some pains to hunt up the cer
tificates which were made public at the
time, and which entirely exonerated
Judge Warmoth from the shadow of
blame, even in the minds of his polit
ical enemies, who would have been
highly delighted to make a point
against a Union man, if possible, even
at the expense of truth. The follow
ing appeared in the Galveston Bulletin
about the first of June, 1867, and was
extensively copied in the Southern pa
" TuE EMBEZZLEMENT CASE.-.The
following papers sufficiently explain
that the case of embezzlement charged
against Mr. Joseph R. Morris and Mr.
H. C. Warmoth has been dismissed by
the judge, and that both the judge of
the court and the district attorney are
fully convinced of the innocence of
both these gentlemen:
O(FFICE OF THE U. S. ATTOILNEY,
Eastern District of Texas,
Galveston. May 29th, 186.
lion. H C. Warmoth, New Orleans:
DEAR SIR--In the course of official
duty here it has been my lot to pros
ecute yourself and Joseph R. Morris,
of houston, for embezzlement of mon
eys of the United States, alleged to
have been received while you were
treasury agent here, in August, 1867.
Upon trial of the case this day it
abundantly appeared that no offense
against the law had been committed,
and his honor, Judge J. C. Watrous,
instructed me to entera nolleprosequi.
I did this the more cheerfully because
the papers of the treasury department
this day put into my hands from the
special agency office here prove c(on
elusively that the matter in respect to
which this prosecution was instituted
was finally adjudicated by the military
authorities in August, 186.5, and that
you and Mr. Morris are above suspi
cion in the matter.
D1). J. BALDWIN,
U. S. District Attorney.
At the May term of the U. S. Dis
trict Court for the Eastern District of
Texas, Galveston, Texas, May 29.
At eleven o'clock a. jury was em
paneled to try Joseph Morris and H,
C. Warmoth for embezzling twenty
one thousand dollars of government
money. The witnesses for the govern
ment were heard, whelp I became sat
isfied that there was no case against
defendants, and told the district attor
ney that I had not a particle of doubt
of the innocente of these defendants,
and that the t nusaction was perfectly
legitimate; at ny rate, if the property
was really the property of the govern
ment. a suit could be brought against
Mr. Morris for its value, but to pursue
this trial any further was an act of the
baldest injustice. I therefore recom
mended to the District Attorney to
enter a nolle pros. The District At
torney rose and said that he was satis
fied of the innocence of the defendants,
and that he held in his hand the papers
of the treasury department which ac
quitted the defendants beyond the
shadow of a doubt, and that he was
glad that the defendants had been
vindicated by the courts of the coun
try. The District Attorney entered
a 'nolle pros., and the court adjourned.
JOHN C. WATROUS,
I, Levi Jones, clerk of the United
States Court at Galveston, certify the
above to be a true copy from the orig
inal, with the seal of court.
LEVI JONES, Clerk.
If the charges now nmade by Mr. Car
ter against Governor Warmoth are as
destitute of.foundation as the one in
sinuated by him, as above copied, he
must have a very weak case. For the
people of Texas happen to know that
the alleged embezzlement of public
money in the cotton ca.se was a myth,
and the prosecution of Messrs. War
moth and Morris was found in feeling
of personal spite, and terminated in
the triumph of the defendants and the
discomfiture of the prosecutors. If
Governor Warmoth has done nothing
since 1867 that his enemies can take
hold of to injure him. so that they are
conlpelled to exhume this old exploded
charge of embezzlement, he may be
ranked among the purest men of the
age. And when the strongest points
urged against him are so frivolous as
this, we naturally presume that the
minor-charges are scarcely entitled to
Have you ever suffered from the
fearful infliction of vague people t
To argue with them is to spend labor
and strength in vain, like trying to
make rope out of sea sand. Beaten
off at every point, they settle down
again into the old vague vapory credo.
and it is like fighting with ghosts to
attempt to convince themn of a better
way. They look at you helplessly,
assent losely to your propositions ; but
when yon come to the necessary de
duction, they double back in a vague
assertion that they do not agree with
you, they cannot prove you wrong,
but they are right; and you know
then that the collapse is hopeless. If
this meant tenacity, it would be so
far respectable, even though the con
viction were erroneous; but it is the
mere unimpressible fluidity of vague
ness, the imporssibillity of giving shape
and coherence to a floating fog or a
formless haze. Vague as to the basis
of their beliefs, they are vaguer still
as to their facts. These indeed are
like a ladder of which half the rungs
are missing. They never remember
a story, and they cannot describe
what they have seen. Of the first
they are sure to lose the point and to
entangle the thread ; of the last they
forget, all the details, and confound
both sequence and position. As to
dates, they are as if lost in a wood
when you require definite centuries,
years, months. It is as much as they
can do to remember their own birtlh
day; but they are never sure of their
children's; and generally mix up
names and ages in a manner that ex
asperates the young people like a per
Sith the Ibest intentions in the
world they do infinite mischief. They
detail what they think they have
heard of their neighbors' sayings and
doings; but as they never detail any
thing exactly, or twice alike, by the
time they have told the story to half
a dozen friends they have given cur
rency to half a dozen different chime
ras which never existed save in their
own woolly imaginations. No repute
is safe with them, even though they
may be personally good-natured and
anxious not to do any one harm ; but
they are so vague that they are al
ways setting afloat exaggerations
which are substantially falsehoods;
and if you tell them the most innocent
fact of any one you would not injure
for words-say you own daughter or
your dearest friend-they are sure to
repeat it with additions and distor
tions, till they have made it into a
Frankenstein which no one now can
subdue. Besides this mental haziness,
which neither sees nor shapes a fact
correctly, vague people are so loose
and unstable in their habits. They
know nothing of punctuality at home
or abroad ; and you are never sure
that you will not stumble on them at
meal-times at what time soever you
may call. But worse than this, your
own meal-times or any other times are
never safe from them. They float in
to your house uncei tainly, vaguely,
without purpose, with nothing to say
and nothing to do, and for no reason
that you can discover. And when
they come they stay; and you cannot
for the life of you find out why they
have come at all.
They invade you all times, in your
busy hours, and on your sacred days,
and sit there in a chaotic kind of si
lence, or with vague talk that it tires
your brains to bring to a focus; but
they are too foggy to understand any
thing like a delicate hint, and if you
want to get rid of them, you must risk
a quarrel and effectively shoulder
them out. They will be no loss.
They are so much driftweed in your
life, and you can make no good of
them for yourself or others. Ever
when they undertake to help you, they
do you more hann than good by the
hazy way in which they understand
and the inexactness with which they
carry out your wishes. They volun
teer to get you by favor the thing you
want and cannot find in the general
way of business-say, something of a
peculiar shade of olive green-and
they bring you in triumph a brilliant
cohalt: and if you trust to their un
controlled action in your affairs, you
find yourself committed to responsi
bilities you cannot meet, and brought
to the verge of destruction. They
do all this mischief, not for want of
good will, but for want of definiteness
of perception ; and are as sorry as you
are when they make "pi " and not a
legible sheet. Their desire is good,
but a vague desire to help is equal to
no help at all, or even worse ; it is a
positive evil, and throws you wrong
by just so much as it attempts to set
you straight. They are as unsatis
factory if you try to help them. They
are in evil case and you are philan
thropically anxious to assist them.
You think that one vigorous push
would lift the car of their fortunes
out of the rut in which it has stuck,
and you go to them with the benevo
lent design of lending your shoulder
as the lever. You question them as
to the central fact which they wish
changed; for you know that in most
cases misfortunes crystallise round one
such evil centre.which being removed,
the rest would go well. But your va
gue friends can tell you nothing.
They point out this little surperficial
inconvenience, that small remeditable
annoyance, as the utmost they can do
in the way of definiteness; but when
you want to get to the core, you find
nothing but a cloudy complaint of
general ill-will or universal run of
untoward circumstances with which
you cannot grapple. To cut off the
hydra's head was difficult enough;
but could even Hercules have decap
itated the Djinn who rose in a vol
ume of smoke from the fisherman's
jar It is the same in matters of
health. Only medical men know to
the full the difficulty of dealing with
vague people when it is necessary that
they should be precise. They can
localise no pain, define no sensation;
if the doctor thinks he has caught
hold of one leading symptom, it fades
away as he tries to examine it; and,
probe as he may, he comes to nothing
more definite than a pervading sense
of discomfort, which he must resolve
into its causes as he best can.
So with their suspicions; and va
gue people are often strangely suspi
cious and distrustful. They tell you
in a loose kind of way that such or
such a man is a rogue, such or such
a woman no better than she should be.
You ask them for their data--they
have none; you suggest that they are
mistaken, or at least that they should
hold themselves as mistaken until
they can prove the contrary, and offer
jour version of the reputations asper
sed; your vague friends listen to you
amiably, then go back on their charge,
and say, "I am smre of it"-which
ends the conversation. They rely on
their impression, as other people rely
on known facts, and a foggy belief is
to them what a mathematical demon
stration is to the exact.
In business matters they are simply
maddening. They never have the
necessary papers; they do not answer
letters; they confuse your questions,
and reply at randon or not at all; and
tley forget all dates and details.
When they go to their lawyer oin busi
ness, they leave certificates and drafts
behind them ; locked up where no one
can get at them ; or if they send di
rections and the keys, tell the servant
to look for an oblong blue envelope
in the right-hand drawer, when they
ought to have said a square white
parcel in the left. They give you va
gue conuissions to execute ; and ;you
have to find your way in the fog to
the best of your ability. They say
they want something like something
else you have never seen, and can
not give an address exact. But apart
from the personal discomforts to
which vague people subject them
selves, and the absurdities of which
they are guilty, one cannot help spec
ulating on the spiritual state of folks
to whom nothing is definite, and no
question of faith clearly thought out.
Convictions based on imagination,
unsupported by facts or proofs, are as
worthless in a moral as in a logical
point of view; but the vague have
nothing better; and whether as po
liticians or as pietists, though they
are war. partisans, they are but fee
ble advocates, fond of flourishing
about large generalities, but impos
sible to pin to any point and unable
to defend any position. To those
who must have something absolute
and precise, however limited--one
inch. of firmly-laid foundation on
which to build up the remainder-it
is a matter of more wonder than envy
how the vague are content to live for
ever in a halze which has no clearness
ofoutline, no definiteness of detail,
and how they can make themselves
happy in a name, calling their fog
faith, and therewith counting them
selves blessed.-Chimney Corner.

business carried on by unprincilled men, in

Tomake the Tribmne still more valuable to

ThneTribune is the best and chanpest til

The Tribune is strong by reason of it1
enormous circulation and great che lnpw-ss.
It has long heien conceded that the 7'ibunie
has the largest circulation of any newspaper
in the colutry. For years we have printed
twice as many paupers, perhaps, na all of the
other weekly edttions of the cite dailies com
bined. This is why we are enblled to do our -.
work so thoroughly and cheaply. The larger
our circulation, the better paper we can make.
What are thepractical uggestionst Many.
Let every subscriber renew his subscription,
and urge his neighbors to do the same. If a
man cannot afford to pay two dollars. let him
raise a club, by indteing his neighbors to
subscribe, ant we shall send him a copy
gratis for his troublre. No newspaper so
large and complete as 'the Weekly lribute
was ever before offered at so low a price.
Even when our currency was at par with
