Mrs. bniveller said:
"Now Sally ant that ere South

people the world ever did-see?
Cousin John who went down as a
suttler brought home two trunks of
the proudest silks, laces, jewelery

ey. He found them in bureaus,
trunks, closets and sich nlaces.

gone off to kill our good people and

was to whip a lot of. little children
and helo himself 1 I knnwtliom nro

Mrs. Puritan wanted to know if
it was true that the people of the
South actually cooked biled din
ners on Sunday ? If they did, she
really hoped her cousin in Congress
would pass a law that whenever a
man in the South cooked a biled
dinner on Sunday, he should be
hung before dinner and his biled
dinner should be sent North !
Mrs. Pinchbeck hoped the war
would continuer to go on till there
was no more end of nothing. For
her part it was all stuff about the
people suffering during the war.
Her Josiah had a contract and
made two hundred thousand dol
lars the first year, and when her
brother Reverend Peaknose Ran
ter came back from the war where
he had periled his precious life eat
ing preserves so they would not
hurt sick soldiers, he brought home
more than fifty gold watches and
the nicest gold clasp bible which
was now used every Sunday in one
of the Buttonville Churches.
Mrs. Squeak said the people of
the South wero nothing but mur
derers, for when her brother, Colo
nel Fibre Hunter was out in a field;
doin' noihing', killin' nobody, doin'
nothin'but justseein' how mush
cotton an army team could draw,
so he could tell if it was a good
team, some cowardly gorilla shot a
hole clean through him, and
wouldn't even send his clothes
home for her Jedediah'to wear out!
And she hoped if another war ever
did come, some of them sinful men
of the West would go down and do
it to 'em agin, not that she cared
so much for her brother, , but 6he
wanted them ere clothes for her
Jedediah I
Mrs. Cockeye said she hoped
there would be a hull passel of wars,
for her cousin, her dear good cou
sin, Benjamin (the Beat) had made
lots of money in the late war, and
had supplied nearly all her rela
tives with spoons, watches, silver
ware &c, and said it was right the
war should go on,1 for her cousin
was safer in jfflfit than afore a court
of Justicp enel and said it was a
Christian duty to let all Christian
wars be
continnered &o long as
there ws
antbody to continner
'em.
' Mrs
nivellbr here spoke again-
"Well

A Divorce Cast—Fall of an
A Divorce Cast—Fall of an Aristocratic Damsel.
This is a wicked world I verily
believe, .and I am confirmed in that
sage opinion Jjy a scandalous af
fair, which I may refer to without
any violation of good taste, since
the matter is one of record.
Your readers will remember that
a year or two ago there was a wed
ding in high life (so called.) A
young but prominent citizen of a
Mortheru State, who counted his
fortune by millions, was the happy
bridegroom, and a daughter of a
then Cabinet Minister was tho
bride.--Rare jewels, worth hund
reds of thousands of dollars, were
lavished on tho bride, and such a
wedding was never in the land,
since Commodore Bar tlett's daugh
ter married the Cuban negro Ovie
do. Well, there had been many
rumors about the couple just nam
ed, and the air has been thick with
scandalous rumors. It was known
the husband was a festive cuss, and
that his thousands were spent in
riotous living wine, cards and
other etceteras. But only latterly
did his wife seem to know or at
least seem to notice the delinquen
cy of her lord, when it was pre
sented to her in such a shape that
there could be no doubt of his infi
delity, or, to be plainer, the servi
ces of a physician were required
to heal her body as well as a law
yer to heal her wounded sensibili
ties. And so she has brought an
action for divorce,and will of course
get swinging damages; both of
which she is entitled to, albeit the
lady herself is very gay. The case
will create a sensation when the
names are given to the public.
Stooping to folly is a common
thing in this world, especially in
the hot-bed of corruption. A sad
case has just been made known,
where a young woman belonging
to the most aristocratic circle of
the Federal city has gone astray.
She had not even been suspected
till a few days ago, when her pro
longed absence in New York,
where she had gone on a visit, led
to inquiry, and her parents to their
horror ascertained that she had
voluntarily becoma the inmate of
a fashionable brothel. No cause,
other than that innate wickedness
which the devil sometimes implants
into poor, weak human nature, is
assigned for the conduct of the wo
man who thus recklessly brings
shame on the honored name of her
family.
The parties referred to in the
first part of the above article, are

rrihy be: brought airainst them
Now,' the law of tho State creating
the Commission savs th.1t "for offi
cial misconduct, any of the said
Commissioners may be removed by
a concurrent vote of the two Hous
es of tho General Assembly, or by
the Governor durinff tho recess
thereof." Tho Governor has thus,
beyond all question, tho richt to
"remove" said Commissioners "un
official misconduct " durinir tho re-
cess of the General Assembly.
Does it now follow, as - a matter ot
course, that he has the right to in
quire whether they have been guil
ty of official misconduct or not?
The Police Commissioners deny
this, and the Tribune says their "le
gal ground is impregnable!"
The Governor has precisely the
same power during the recess of
the General Assembly to remove
tbiJ Commissioners which is con
ferred by law upon that body while
in session. Could not the Asm.
bly inquire into charges of official
misconduct, if brought in due form
against the Commissioners?
Our own laws in regard to cer
tain Ojfficers are precisely, anala-
gous. Governor 1-enton has tho
lower to remove sheriffs and cer
tain officers of this city for official
misconduct. Does the Tribune
lold that he has no power to in-
uire whether thevhavo been trini
ty of such misconduct or not? Can
he act only on the verdict of a ju
ry, as the JJaltimoro Commission
ers absurdly preteud? W7hy, then,
docs Jie entertain tho chargei
against tho Street Commissioner,
Mr. Cornell, which have been
brought before him, and are now
awaiting investigation f Has.'.Mr.
Cornell ever pretended, or ' any
body for him, that his ease mu?t
first go to a court and jury, and
that until it had been thus decii
ed, the Governor had no jurisd:-"
tion over it? The Tribune woi:l i
have justly scouted such a plea i?
any body had been foolish t-nour;!.
make it. '''-,
Yet when, in a case precisely a:,
alogous, the same plea is urged Vf
the Police Commissioners in Bihi
more, the Tribune declares it '
pregnable," and is aiding the ei"
resist by mob violence and iwi'
war any attempt on the part cf t'; -Governor
to exercise the juri.niic
tion expressly conferred upovi t -
by law. This i3 but one of nur.
indications, afforded by cum;...
events, of the mere than readi't'-"---of
extreme and violent men air
to plungp the country again w
confusion and bloodshed, for
accomplishment ol party end,.
The tendency is full of peril to
best interests of tho country and .
the safety of free institutions eve
where.' i ..
Wo agree with the Evening Po:!
thinking lhat the Police Com
missioners in this case have' get
themselves at a groat disadvantage
by taking ground that is utterly
untenable. If they have commit
ted no official misconduct, ther
should have met the charges uix'i
refuted them. By denying a juris
diction expressly conferred by law.
they half acknowledge the justice
the charges preferred against
them. "
