Because Love's sigh is but a sigh.

Because the rose must fade and die,
Is it the less the lovely rose?
Because black night must shroud the day,
Shall the brave sun no more bo gay ?
Because chill autumn frights the birds,
Shall we distrust that sp lug will come?
Because sweet words are only words,
Shall Love tor evfi more be dumb?
Because our bliss is fleeting bliss,

A private letter to a business
firm in Cincinnati, from a citizen
of Mississippi, says:
Toxtotoc, May 2S, 1S67. It ap
pears to me that we are getting
from bad to worse every day. The
cotfntry certainly is in a terrible
condition, and I don't see any pros
pect of improvement. The crop
prospects are very fair, and there
is so much litigation, that it will
take a large percentage of the
products of the country to pay the
costs of suits. Taxes, also, are en
ormous; and no people can prosper
under all these drawbacks. Add
to all our troubles, that of negro
equality, and it gives the finishing
touch, or impetus, to our down
ward march. Under the Sherman
Reconstruction Bill, the negroes,
and a class of white men who will
afliliate with them, will control the
country. And it we refuse to or
ganize under that bill, we are
threatened with worse evils. I don't
see how they could make it much
worse. There is considetable dif
ference of opinion among our best
men as to the proper course to be
pursued. Keally, we are a ship at
sea without rudder or compass; not
knowing whither we are drilting,
and at the mercy of the elements.
I anrrnore concerned about our po
litical than our financial affairs.
All We have to do is to work and
toil; try to do right and trust to
Providence. Should the blacks and
mean whites get possession of our
State Government, I don't 6ee how
honest white men are to remain in
The Man Fed by the Spirits Dead.
From the Dayton Empire of Tuesday.
Mr. Brown, the old gentleman
who has excited so much wonder
in our community because of the
number of days he lived without
partaking of food, died yesterday.
As near as we can learn, this old
gentleman was eighty-four years
of age, and eighty-four was the
number of days he lived without
eating, May this iact not be set
down as a coincidence worthy of
the attention of those who incline
to a belief in spiritual manifesta
tions, and to the idea that spirits
have a controlling influence - upon
JAp existence and actions of man
Knid. And the fact of his long ex
istence without food and an exam
ination of his body by our surgeons
and medical men, may serve the
purpose of an interesting investi
gation, if not a development of
some great fact heretofore unknown
to our scientific men.
Mr. Browne has borne among his
friends nnd acquaintances a most
excellent character for truthful
ness and honesty of purpose, and
we, therefore, are the more fully
inclined to believe his statements
relative to his peculiar condition
during the eighty-four days which
he claimed he was under' the con
trol of spirits and receiving his
food at their hands through the
medium of tho atmosphere.
Mr. Brown stated that the spirits
gave him wanuug in time to make
all 4he-ucessary- preparations for
leaving this world, that his natural
physical death would take place on
the 28th of February last, but that
his spirit would remain in the body
but strictly under their control.
From the time stated as the period
of his physical death, and for fifty
three days of the time the spirits
had control ot him, he asserted
that he felt no pain had no desire
to eat, and did not partake of food.
At the end of that time, however,
he said they began to withdraw tho
food they were furnishing, and on
the sixtieth day, after a consulta
tion with a spirit physician from a
higher sphere, they withdrew his
food entiiely and created an appe
tite, which he was told was to in
duce him to eat and produce a diar
rhea that would enable them to
separate the spiritual from tho
physical more completely. Ho
partook of a little coffee and crack
er for threo or four days, when a
diarrhoea set in, which continued
up to the time of his death, yester
day. For the last twenty-one clays
of his existence, we lave the as
surance that ho neither ate or drank
Ill's is a most singular case, in
deed, and worthy of investigation.
For ourselves, we are spiritually
skeptical but what we have seen
and learned in reference to Mr.
Brown, has produced a desire to
have the matter investigated, and
the result of the investigation giv
en to the world.
We understand that the funeral
of Mr. Brown will take place on
An Indication. The elections in
Kentucky and Connecticut afford a
most striking example of the
change which has taken place in
public sentiment, within the last
few months. Kentucky sends nine
members of Congress. In the last,
or thirty ninth Congress, five of
these were Democrats and four
were radicals. At the election held
a few days since, for members of
the fortieth Congress, the Demo
crats elected all nine of the mem
bers. Connecticut, in the 39th Con
gress, was represented by four rad
icals, the whole delegation being
radicals. At the election held in
April, for members of the fortieth
Congress, the Democrats elected
three, and the radicals one. Thus
we have a gain of four members in
Kentucky and three in Connecti
cut, making an aggregate gain of
seven members in these two States;
and in the vote in the llouse of
Congress, a difference of lourteen.
At this rate, if a few more States
were yet to elect members of the
fortieth Congress, we might confi
dently anticipate a Democratic
The Maysville (Ky.) Bulletin
makes a very serious charge against
one of our Cincinnati contractors,
through tthose alleged fraudulent
work several felons were enabled
to make their escape from one of
the county jails. The charge is that,
instead of using solid bars of iron,
gas pipes, filled with lead or some
other soft material,was used. There
must be some mistake or willful
misrepresentation in the statement
of this case. AVe do oi think,
much as we dislike the politics of
the person charged with having
imposed this alleged fraudulent
work on his employers, that he
would be guilty of such a trick. We
shall await futher developments.
The credit system has been car
ried to a pretty fine point in some

recently occurred between a cus

A gentlemanly agent of a cer
tain city was collecting fares from
the passengers of a very full 'bus
rone morning, ah paui promptly
except ono fat old lady, who sat
next the door, and who seemed to
be reaching down as if to got
something she had dropped on the
floor. When her time camo to pay,
she raised her head and thus ad
dressed the blushing youth: al
lers, when I travels, carry my mon
ey in my stockin',for you sees,nolli
ing can get it thar, and I'd thank
you, young man, jist to reach it for
me, as I am so jammed in that I
can't get to it." The youth looked
at the other passengers, some of
whom were laughing at bis plight;
one or two young ladies among
them blushed scarlet, and lie beat
a sudden retreat, muttering some
thing about not charging old la
dies, &c. His cash was short that
morning the faro of one passenger.
Booth's Burial Place.
Tho following passage from Gen
eral L. C. Baker's history of tho sec
ret Service Department sets at rest
tho dispute as to tho final disposi
tion of Booth's body:
In order to establish the identify
of the body of tho assassin beyond
all question, the Secretary of War
directed me to summon a number
of writnesses residing in the city of
Washington who had previously
known the murderer. Sonio two
previous to the assassation of tho
President Booth had a tumor or a
carbuncle cut Irom his neck by a
surgeon. On inquiry it was ascer
tained that Dr. May, a well known
and a very skilful surgeon of twenty-live
years' practice in Washing
ton, had performed the operation.
Accordingly 1 called on Dr. May,
who before seeing tho body minute
described the exact locality of the
tumor tho nature and dato of the
operation ccc. After being 6 worn
he pointed to tho scar in his neck,
which was' then plainly visible.
Five other witnesses were examin
ed, all of whom had known the as
sassin intimately for years. The
various newspaper accounts, refer
ring to the mutilation of Booth's
body, are equally absurd. General
Barnes, Surgeon General United
States army, was on board tho gun
boat were post mortem examination
was held with his assistants. Gen
eral Barnes cut from Booth's neck
about two inches of the spinal col
umn though which the ball had
passed. This piece of bone, which
is now on exhibition in the Govern
ment Medical Museum in Wash
ington, is tho only relic of tho as
sassin's body above ground, and
this is the only multilation of the
remains that ever occured. Imme
diately alter the conclusion of the
examination tho secretary of War
gave orders as to the disposition of
the body, which had become very
offensive owing to the condition in
which it had remained after death.
The leg,broken in jumping from the
box to the .stage, was much dis
colored and swollen the blood from
the wound having saturated his un
derclothing. With the assistance of
Lieutenant L. B. Baker I took the
body from tho gunboat direct
to the old Penitentiary, adjoining
the old Arsenal grounds. The
building had not been 'used as a
prison for some years previously
The Ordnance Department had fil
led the ground floor cells villi fix
ed ammunition. One of the larg
est of these cells was selected as
the burial place of Booth. The am
munition was removed, a largo flat
stone lifted from it a place and a
rude grave dug; the body was drop
ped in, the grave filled up, the stone
replaced, and there rests to this
hour all that remains of John Wil
[From the Philadelphia Ledger.]
some curious facts in reference
to the internal revenue, has
just been published, from which we
learn that out of the whole popula
tion of the United States only 450,
000 persons paid a tax upon incomes
in other words, less than half a
million have incomes of more than
SG00 a year. Those who have less
than that evidently need it all to
live on, and thus spend all they
earn. The great mass of the people,
therefore, are taxed only indirectly,
through the duties of the imposts
imposed on the articles they con
sume; and if these are increased,
their wages must be increased also,
else they can not live. It is stated,
in the same connection, that one
of the largest railroads in the coun-

try has adopted the" principle of
paying to its common laborers the
price of a barrel 'of flour per week,
finding this to be a more just and
satisfactory mode of measuring tho
value of labor than the price of pa
per money, as it is assumed that
the price of tho necessaries of life
are more likely to follow the price
of flour than the fluctuations of tho
currency. This, to a certain extent,
may be a very good test of the val.
tie of labor; but as the price of flour
must be higher or lower according
to the extent of the gain crops, and
the prices of other articles be ..re
gulated by the amount of taxes put
upon them through the agency of
tariffs and excise tho rise or fall in
the market can not always sectiro
a corresponding rise or fall in other
commodities. If the crops shall be
very abundant, breadstuff's mayde
cline below tho comparative stand
ard for many other articles, and if
they bo short and the supply limi-
ted, then prices will be higher in
proportion than tho prices of other
articles. Tho restoration of the
whole country to wanted prosperity
by tha tho encouragement of pro
duction throughout all its borders,
by the cutting off of every possible
source of expenditure as to reduce
taxta'inn, and by cutting off also
the politicians and setting them
aside in every quarter, while the
peoplo white and black, may labor
undisturbedly, are the things that
are needed are the things that are
imperative, for the relief of all.
Wool in New York.
We have to report continued dull
ness in tho market for demestic
wool, with, however, no perceptible
change in prices. There is a limited
demand for choice fleece, while the
low grades are but little sought
after. As to tho future, there are
so many depending contingencies,
touching the extent of the new clip,
tho course of the goods markel,the
crop?, itc, that the trade are at a
loss to know how to proceed with
any degree of safety. "The future,"
writes a prominent firm, "is any
thing butbright,and those manufac
turers who succeed in weathering
the storm, may do a profitable bus
iness in future yeafs." In the fore
ign staple,Uiere is even less activity
than in domestic. The hulk of tho
receipts since the new tariff went
into operation remain in bond, and
it is hardly probable that furher
considerable importations will be
mado, until such a time as wool
can bo purchased abroad sufficient
ly low to equalize tho new duty.
The prices at tho foreign sources
of supply will drop considerably is
quile probable, as the result of the
absence of so important a customer
as the United States. Indeed the
various markets of Europe are al
ready depressed, under accumulat
ing supplies. The salea since our
last comprise 100,000 lbs. State and
Western fleece and pulled at35
-15c. for unwashed fleece the lat
ter price for Ohio 4563c. for
washed' do., including XX Ohio at
GOOlCelc, and super extra pulled 40

3-Ic, and small parcels California,
freo of burrs, 2S34c. Small lots
of fine foreign are picked up for
mixing with domestic clothing
wool, when not relatively -higher,
though there is little to be had at
prices which meet the views of
"Mack." the correspondent of
the Commercial, is thus frank to
admit the great evil which has been
done in the South by the Radical
agitators ieeding the minds of the
negroes with hopes of confiscation.
He says :
"Here, as elsewhere throughout
the South, great mischief has been
done by feeding the negroes upon
the false hope ot confiscation. The
other day, at a little town some dis
tance from here, a Radical negrd
meeting was held. There three
speakers one white and two color
edeach of whom was sensible
enough to say that if the'! exdored
man wanted land he must work for
it, and earn it, and not hope to get
it in any other way. The darkies
didn't like this at all ; they, cursed
the speakers in private the color
ed ones especially whom they
denominated mean Yankee niggers,
(they were New Yorkers,) and said
they wouldn't come to any more
meetings to hear such talk as that.
They knew better, they knew they'd
get land without working for : it;
just wait and see if they didn't." .. .
