The Buffalo Courier tells the following atorf,
which is very good, but rather old, having gone'
the rounds of the papers some years shice:
A good story is told of a prominent railroad
gentleman of this city, who is equally renowned
for his ability to make and take a joke. ' A rail
road employee, whose home is in Avon, came
. one Saturday night to ask for pass down to
visit his family, t '
"You are in the employ of the railroad?" in
quired the gentleman alluded to.
"You receive your pay regularly?" t
"Well. ?ow suppose von were workinz for
a farme; instead of a railroad, would you expect
your employer to hitch up his team every Satur
day ntgut ami carry you home i
This seemed a poer, but it "wasn't. "Xo,1
said the man, promptly, "J wouldn't expect that;
out it tne larmer caa cis team hitched up and
was Roing my way, I should call him a darned
mean cuts if he wouldn't let me ride."
Mr. Employee came out three minu';s after
ward with a pass in his sock good for twelve
montliB. ' '
Ou Mr. Fuddle fell down in a puddle, just as
a ruuuway horse and shuy came along that way.
In helpless pi'.ht, he roared with fright, the
horse came quik all gallop and kick; wheu
the old man raided his great oaken stick. The
horse then shied a little aside, fr sticks were no
friends to his well-led hide. Within a foot of
Fuddle's toes, within an inch of his ruby nope,
the wheel came whizzing, and on it goes.- Up
rises Fuddle from out of the puddle, and stands
on the road, with a swaggering pride, then
wheeling away from the scene of the fray,
urUhed his i-i-k wiili a hero's pride.

After leaving JXehia. I hl a pleasant trip to
Kew York City; had -to slay there until Satur
day, July 11;' and,-aher a,-roo;;lt; stermy trip ef
three days and nights, we. arrived i Jievberne,
where we found tlie b.ij5 at camp alT right and
in good cheer, for they bad just returned from a
successful raid-oa th-"Viinsin!,'ta and WolJon
Railroad, and were prepsmg-for another on tiie
same railroad, but in ;:iuother direction. The
first was direct west to Warsaw, ami the last is
to Greenvilie, Tarbcr ar.d Rocky Mount, all
on the Tar River. Kocky iloun't is at the
crossing of the niiiro id over the Tar River.
On isaturday, July If . started, crossing the
yose at Kewberne. ; We marched sixteen miles
to Swift Creek Viil age, mped all night, and,
at 4 P. M. Sunday we .were oa the road to
Greenville, twenty-seven miles from Swift
Creek. This day ,1 was one of the advanced
vklettes, and pick. d up several stragglers along
the road. .Some were home on iurtoughAnd
one was a Qur j termaster, or, rather, a Pay
master, for be was. paying for some Quarter
masters' stores that had been collected through
the country. Ee did not want to be taken, at
all, for he bar1, 6,000 in i'orth Carolina money,
but a. lew f astot snots soon, brougnt turn to.
Some of tb e prisoners belonged to a picket-
camp, fifie- ga miles from Swiit Creek.; When
near the ca jnp (we thought about a mile and a
half.bnt :rliy only about half a mile dis
tant,) we -iBtwtwo inen in the distance, nu surt;
posed th tm to be the outside picket of Uw
camo.o-.: Coir of us biaoa a ch&rpa ui mi-k t hem
up, so they eouid not- alarm . Lhe cainp; but,
imagia' a our surprise, when mutiny a sliL'iit
turn in , the road, we were almost into the camp.
V e.W. ere too close and going too fast to-reetilv
our t aistake. It was a rather risky business for
four .to charjre twenty-eight' men, and inf iintrv
tat f .hat. (When the videttes chanred the uup-
P Jed pickets, the support did not come up as
pr iomptly as they should, and, when we saw our
i sLitake, we were a quarter of a mile ahead.)
' Attn a shout of defiance we dashed in among
the confused Rebels, and ordered them to sur-
render,aud, by way of enforcing the argument,
(we commenced firing at them. e went en

The camp was completely eurroundel by tim
ber and thick underbrush. The Rebels were
ao completely surprised that they did not know
as until we were within1 twenty steps of them
nd firing at them. They only fired a few scat
tering shots,' wounding two horses. -
Alter securing the prisoners ana uurning
their quarters and stores, we started for Green--rille,
arriving at 2 P. M- We expected to cap
ture two companies ot cavalrv w ho were quar-
tisred in town, but,whea.we got there, found
e.mpty quarters, the companies being away on
some duty, vv e captured iitteen sick in the
hospital, whom we paroled, and broke open the
jail and let out thirty negroes who were about
to Dm sent, on; cut the endge across the 1 ar
River, fed our iiorse, burned ail the Rebel
Quartermaster : and Commissary stores that we
could find, and,. at 5 P. M., started for Tarboro,
and at midnight were within seven miles of the
town,- We halted three hours here, when the
force--divided,'one battalion for Rocky Mount
and the balance for Tarboro. -
I was svith the detachment for Rocky Mount,
where we arrived at 9 A. M., having marched
eighteen mifea. Here w e captured a train of
twenty-two wagons, loaded with bacon and corn;
also, a train of cars and thirty prisoners, several
of the latter being officers. In about two hours
we had made complete destrucion, by burning
wagons, cars, the railroad deprcand warehouse,
a large cotton and cloth factory, cud two bridges
across the Tar River. In tbe tvar 'house there
was large quantities oF stores and ammunition,
among w hich wus e large quantity of strtl;, s-jd
when the- building was burned,' they made the
greatest shooting that I ever heard.
- Here wo started -torenirn to-Nerrberne, and
arrived at Tarboro at 5 P. M., where the detach
ment who preceded us had a skirmish, losing
twenty-one men, in killed, wounded and miss
ing they capturing tlie town. Tbey burned
the armory, large quantities of stores, arms and
ammunition, cotton, three gunboats and two
brid' 83. Our forces had done their work and
been, gone tiro hours when we arrived.1- The
Rebels had come back to the opposite side of the
river, ami shelled us as we passed. ' -
The Rebels not hearing of our advance until
we got to Greenville, they could not stop oar
approach into the comityr but they went to con
centrating their forces in our rear to cut off our
return to JJewberne. When -we got back to
within six miles of Greenville, -we found the road
cut full of trees, the bridge torn lip, and a force
in a strong ' position on the opposite, side. We
skirmished a while, and threw a few shells at
each other, when, after Borne delay, we found a
road that crossed the stream a mile to the right,
at a deep, difficult ford.- It wis 10 o'clock at
night when we found the fbrd, and we were all
night getting across. The Rebels were shelling
us all tha time, and they had good range of us,
for they put them in very close, but did little
4amage, . - ' .. . - . ' ' ''
. I was in the rear guard- that ni ght, and was
never sO much disgusted with drunkenness as I
was then, for there were twelve men almost
helplessly drunk. I tried gentle means till.my
patience was worn out; then I took them on the
rough, picked them up and put them in the sad
dles, and tied theirfeet under thehorses'be'.lies.
Some begged and said they would go along
without diScirlty; but I itas -tired of broken
promises, so I took my own way of it, and suc
ceeded well." " " " ' : ' v
At daylight Tuesday, July 21, all were across.
We marched all 'day (except-two short halts to
feed) and all night and tdl 4 P. M.; Wednes
day, the 22d, and arrived at Street's Ferry, on
the 'ase nine miles above Newberne. -We
had three skirmishes before arrrring here, and,
soon after Teaching- the ferry, the Rebels at
tacked our rear with a heavy force of cavalry,
infantry and artillery. Our force was all cav
alry, except four mountain howitzers, which are
good at short range. - When over 900 yards they
are useless. We bad the advantage of position,
and held it against superior numbers. We had
seven men wounded uid four horses killed. At
dark the boats came up with the pontoons. We
worked all night, nnd at 7 A. H., Thursday, the
25th, we all -crossed, and at 11 o'clock were in
and almost tired to death.

Some younj men, traveling on horseback
among the W hite Mountains, became exceed
ingly thirsty, and stopped for milk at a house by
the roadside. They emptied nearly every bnsin
that was offered, and still wanted more. The
woman of the house at length brought out an
enormous bowl of milk, and set it down on the
table, saying .... ...

Thb difference -between having a tooth prop
erly drawn by a -professional surgeon, and hav
ing it knocked out miscellaneously by a fall upon
the pavement, is only a slight verbal distinction,
after all one is denial and the other aeci-dental.
There was never any excuse for the sceptic
ism as to the negro's capacity for fighting. Tbe
slaveholder never showed it, nor never had it.
Years ago, H. A. Wise said in a letter to South
Side Adams: "With white officers I would fight
a regiment of them against any foreign troops
which could land on our shores. They are
faithful and they are brave, and more disinter
ested than the white man. They are joyous in
temperament and patient, as their nerves are
coarse and strong." And he followed this up
with the following elaborate eulogy on the race
as a whole: , "Tlie descepdants of Africa now
here in bondage in the United States ore en
maste, as a whole wealth of people, in bodily
comfort, morality enlightenment, Christianity
and actual personal freedom, worth more thaii
their mother country entire, not excepting the
Europeans there combined with the natives."
What Africa is worth per foot or acre, it would
l.e difficult to stiy,. but WLc's estimate of the
value of tlie negro race is a high one. If he
had said worth more than the whole Copperhead
patty, he would have greatly under-estimated
their worth. Springfield Republican,
"CrrrEk" Brroai the DaAtT. A military
officer wanted to compliment a' negro by drink
ing with him. ."Well, captain," replied. Cuff,
"l'se very dry; so I won't, be ugly about it.
Some niggas is too proud to drink with a inilishy

Narrow Escape from a Tiger.
Having received intimation that a tiger had
ti!!J n biiTlm V
in a patch of iuntle, near
Jfc a oa
the Jumna, tbreo Kimrods, more
Taliant than discreet, started on foot a few
mornings ago, determined, to carry out their
plans at any risk. Holding in derision the usual
mode of going on elephants, with a battery of
guns within- reach, they found theit way to the
forest on foot, each armed with a double-barreled
rifle. Sportsmen in the Sewalick Hills are
almost invariably followed by natives with spare
guns, as in case of the first missing, there is
generally time to take the second gun, and if
not kill,' at least .turn the animal from you.
Even this precaution was neglected. The con
sequence was, that they stumbled on a tiger.
whieh very soon managed to get the better of
one of them. Major Brownlow, of the Sahara
pore Canals, received very severe injuries in va
rious, places, and is now under medical treat
ment. It seems that as they were walking a
few patfes apart from each other. Lieutenant St.
John, who was a little ahead, observed the tiger
about a dozen yards off in tiie bushes. He fired
his right barrel, then his left, one ball wounding
the animal very desperately, it having entered
his neck near t(ie shoulder and passed into his
body; yet it was not sufficient to prevent his
rushing toward the sportsmen. As lie approach
ed within a few paces of Major Brownlow, he
fired, and then somewhat random, for the ball
whistled harmlessly by. In a second or two the
tiger was upoq him, and, striking him with his
paw, at once luid bira prostrate. Lieutenant St,
John now advanced to his friend's rescue. He
had discharged both barrels, and the only re
source left him ivas to lay hold of the muzzle of
the gun, and give the beast heavy knocks on the
head w ith the butt a feat which he performed
in a manner that M'uo, who, according to the
historians of his lime, could floor an ox with his
clenched fist, might have envied. The blows
were dealt w ith tremendous force, and had the
desired effect of forcing the' tiger to leave his
intended victim and retreat, though at a very
slow pace, into tlie adjoining thickets, where he
was soon lost to view. This was, indeed, a
providential escape, and though severely mauled
the sportsman who came to grief will soon be
able "to take the field" again, if he should be
still inclined to risk life and limb in another ad
venture of this sort. Times of India.
Affecting Scene in a Hospital.
A lady of this city,', who has been constant in
faithful attentions to the sick and wounded, both
in this citv and Louisville, last nijrht related to
us aii incident which, to have witnessed, could
not have failed to touch the most stoirv- heart.
Some weeks -siuce, a number ot ladies had pro
vided a bounteous supply of ice cream for the
patients iu one of our hospitals. The cream
was handed around, and the invalids eagerly
partook ot it. In one corner of the room, bow
ever, it we3 noticed that the spoon and saucer
had not been touched.- On the bed oy the little
table containinst them, lav a voung boy. Ins tea
tures white as marble, his eyelids drooping, and
without a movement to indicate that the nicker-
inir candle of life had no: gone out forever. A
lady present approached the bed, and gently
tunning tne pale brow, wnisperea, "tne poor lit
tle fellow is asleep, we must not disturb him."
"Ho. ma'am, I'm not asleep," the boy an
swered, in a voice of the silvery mellowness of
"Weil, do you uot like ice creim?" continued
the lady, drawing nearer the bed. ' .
"Very much," replied the boy.
"Didn't you see me place 'this on your table,'
asked the ladv. reaching for the plate.
"Ob, yes," he answered, tremulously, "but I
shut my eves and cried to mvselt.
"Cried, my child, why, what made you cry,
my dear? ' i - -
"Ah, ma'am, if you will pull down tbe qailt
a little you will see."
The lady did so, and found that he had no
arms ! Colli ol them had been lost in Dattle,on
the bloody field of Stone River. Poor little
fellow ! the sympathy of silence and tears was
all that could be bestowed upon hi3 wounded
spirit. 1 he remembrance of sister and brother,
of father -and loving mother, of the old play
ground. t home, aud the- companions of his
childish frolics, and play-mates of yore, was
awakened to soothe the fancy ot the little suf
ferer. His tears were dried, and while a smile
lighted up his pale face, he said to the ladies :
"1 can't go back to those now: but soon God
will give me other two arms, and then up above
I'll meet and greet them all." Such was the
simple beauty of his tender resignation to the
will of God ! It was far superior in grandeur
even to the physical bravery be had displayed
even imon the battle-field ! The child has eon

The Next Great Experiment.
BY STEPHEN H. TYNG, D.
The experiment of human slavery in this
country has been thoroughly tried. It has been
tried with every conceivable advantage. - And
never was a moral or social demonstration more
complete than its total incompatibility with the
happiness, success, or safety ot either class in
volved in it whether black or white. The
question -of preponderant misery, degradation,
aud rain to the one or the other of these two
classes is, perhaps must be, left unsettled. But
the unanimous conclusion of the whole nation is,
that its product is only ruin for both. We may
assume it therefore as a conclusion,, absolute
and final, that slavery and sluveholding in this
country are dead, never to be resuscitated again
to a continued life. Two vearsof noble warfare
have at last rained us this result. This much of
experience we have acquired from this long tri
al of the one experiment. The stream cannot
roll back upon its fountain. Come what will
come, I suppose we are never to be deluded
again by this monster crime, and that oppressed
and injured race are to be held 'in open and avow
ed bondage no more.
And now comes the irreat alternative experi
ment. If they can be kept in bondage, can
they be maintained lq freedom 7 We hnve cer
tainly had brave and comforting words spoken
on this subject, in the sincerity of which we will
still confide. The President has declared the
slaves of rebels toee. He has pledged his word
that the Army and Nary of the L nited States
shall maintain them in this freedom. Congress
has said that the property of their rebellious
masters shall be employed and devoted for their
welfare. The Attorney-General says that ther
are citizens, and entitled to all the privileges of
citizenship. And millions of a loyal people
stand around and abroad .'.uniting with the shout
of multitudes "Amen. ;It shali be so.- These
sons of bondage are 'for ever free.' As free,
they are citizens to be held in just and secure
possession of all the rights and privileges of
American citi zenship herealler. .
The President and the people have gone yet
further in their united testimony and pledge.
They are citizens ; and they shall be soldiers be
cause they are so. Already are they mustering
by thousands to defend a country which has
thus nobly adopted them, in answer to this call.
Regiments are now to be numbered by scores.
They will swell to a mighty army. Officers of
the highest character, the most refiued education,
and the most elevated social position, are willing
and eager to unite with them, to lead them, to
command them, to press on with them to the
strain of battle, and the rrasp of glory. Never
was there such a trial ot untrained soldiers en
dured as these heroes have triumphantly borne.
In the first fights which they have seen, they
have flinched from nothing. They have proved
themselves, beyond even white comparison,
bold, eager, intelligent, disinterested, and un
shrinking. All the qualities of citizenship iu
the highest individual display they .nave exhibit
ed to an admirincr nation, and have vindicated
for themselves an imperishable name. This
crown no man can take from them.
And now for their future, let the unbending
laws of human civilization test and regulate it.
All I say is. Deal with them as men, not as
black men. Give them no special advantages.
t,ay on them no personal, peculiar burdens.
Give to them all the rights of citizenship, and
impose upon them all its just responsibilities. I
ask for them no patronage ; I deprecate in their
behalf no trials. Let them have all that white
immigrants upon our soil receive, a nation's
protection for their condition, a nation s ac
knowledgment of their equal rights, a nation s
defence of their peaceful possession of all that
they can earn or acquire in honorable trades or
peaceful and useful employments. Let this free
and grateful community rise,above the degrad
ing imputation that they are "niggers," and re
member that they are men. I ask no more for
them than that they shall have the chance which
all other men have. I will never consent to
any less. If on this plane of responsibility they
cannot rise, thev must sink. If thev cannot take
care of themselves, thev mast perish. We have
thoroughly demonstrated that the nation cannot
take care of tlieui in any other relation. -On
this subject I have no fears and no anxie
ties. Give them perfect liberty, and let them
work out their destiny and history for them
selves, it universal suffrage, without limitation
of persons or circumstances, is to be given to
others, let it be given to them. If restrictions
and restraints on the right of suffrage are to be
imposed upon others, let these alsa be extended
to them. Give- them the same openings in work
and trade the same security in person and pro
perty the same encouragement to thrift and
energy. Let tlie experiment of liberty be tried
as fairly for them as the experiment of slavery
has been tried with them. - 1 hey must abide by
the results of all fair and honest competition in
every hue of hie. Of these results, in their wel
fare and success, I have no fears or question.
But let the experiment be honorably and fairly
tried. Any class legislation, imposing on them
burdens which others are not requued to bear ;
hampering them with disadvantages from which
others are relieved ; and compelling them to
work against a current of prejudice and hostility
which others are not obliged to meet, is but a
return so far to the old experiment of slavery,
already found so impracticable aDd ruinous. It
will have the effect of oppressing them ; and in
the habitual order of social experience as well
as in the retributions ot a divine Providence, it
will but prepare the way for future discontents,
difficulty, and . contest both with them and
among others in their behalf.
But has this nation yet suffered enough from
the practice of oppression to adopt a scheme of
justice and benevolence lor the time to come 7
Have we seen enough, and tasted enough, of the
miseries of wrong doing to be willing now to do
honestly and completely right ? Have we risen
toa stand of conviction or to a sense of obliga
tion which will be adequate to sustain a final
renunciation of the evil, and a triumphant deter
mination to exalt tbe nation in righteousness,
that it may abide in peace ? For this I some
times hardly dare to hope. And yet I am thor
oughly convinced there is no other path open to
us, eitherif security or peace. . And the sound
est policy as well as the clearest justice will lead
us as a nation to cultivate and exercise the lar
gest spirit of justice and kindness toward them
as toward all other men.
- That they will sustain themselves in industry,
honor themselves in integrity, make themselves
nrofitable in usefulness, and respectable in con
dition and relations, I am perfectly sure ; and
under the divine protection and blessing, 1
should look to see them exhibiting all the com
mon excellences of good and prospering men in
an equal measure with others and some ef the
human virtues in a far higher degree.- They
will bless in being blessed. They will return
to the welfare of the nation an ample recom
pense for all the protection they receive ; and
as the recipients of an exalted kindness in the
midst of obstacles, they will be also the pledges
and witnesses of that divine bounty which as
aumpa the riavment for the needy : and thus
"though poor, be making many rich."

It is said that the very idea of forcing a man
into the. army -under the Conscription Liw is
infamous. Let us see. WhaOfs a conscription
law? It is a law enacted by the legislative pow
er of the country for tlie protection of the Gov
ernment, for enrohing soldiers to dei'ead the
Government sgainst ail Its foes, foreign ar do
mestic. Do those-people who t&Bt of th infai
mons, odious Conscription" BUS, not know that
there is not a Go vernmenr" on tbp.of earth bht
passes a conscription, law whenever they desire
to raise .troops for any emergency whitevert
Some Governments raise troops without con
scription laws. They' just issue proclamations,
and tell the people to march up and be soldiers
without further - notice. This is the. way. they
do in the land of Jeff. He issued an order the
other day without auy act of Congress. ' They
have to go forward and deliver themselvei up,
or they will be arrested and shot as deserters.
But that is all right, of course, because Jeff,
does it. He has a right to do that; but if the
President of the United States or the Congress
of the United States happen to pass a conscrip
tion law when we have not troops enough to put
down this rebellion, it is an outrage. 1 want to
say this : If I was President of the United
States, and bad the power, and if Jeff. Davis
or any other Jeff, was fighting against the Gov
ernment to destroy it, whether I had a con
scription law or not, I Would have soldiers.
And everv man I found trying to excite sedi
tion or to produce dissatisfaction in the army
that was fighting for the Government, I would
han on the first tree I came to. That's what
I'd do with them.
Whenever gentlemen talk in this country
about obeying law, about the violation of the
Constitution; whenever gentlemen in this or any
other country are denouncing men for the ex
ercise of power that doesn't belong to them, why
in God s name, let thsm trv ana ooev tne laws
themselves, before they talk to others about it.
Look at New York. Here is. a conscription
law attempted -to be enforced for the purpose
of Taising' soldiers to fight tor the old flag that
wa carried by Washington on many a bloody
field; that our fathers and brothers have waved
and shaken in the face of the enemy until they
trembled with fear because of the power that
Was known to be in the old banner; to fight by
the side of veterans who have for over two
years marched to the music of the Union; to
fight for old Yankee Doodle, as we always did.
but men wre told that this law must he op
posed, that mobs must be raised to prevent its
enforcement, and these men, who invite tbe
mob spirit in New York, are clamorous for the
Constitution and laws. Thev want the letter
of the Constitution adhered to. They want the
laws all administered properly. In New York,
gentlemen will get up and make speeches, and
talk about usurpation in office, and the unjust
exercise of power, and all this, to do what?
To make people iaw-abiding, Constitution-lov-uig
citizens? No, but to excite the jap dace to
every deed of violence and atrocity, to make
them resist the law openly; to make them will
fully murder their fellow-citizens in the streets;
tosmake thein commit. Acts of robbery, murder
and arson. Was not that the result of these
teachinsrs in New York? What did thev do for
the people whom they excited thus? Did they
prevent anv of them from bein'r enrolled? No;
but they caused the streets of New York tu
How with the blood of their leilow-citizens.
And so it will always be when such riots are
attempted, because tbe Government has the
power to put them down, and wiil put them
down, and the gentlemen who excite moos, will
be first to suffer; they will be the first to run
out of the country to get rid of the law, too.
There ore a great many other objections to
the proseeutiou of this war, I hear it said that
euough blood has been spilt already; that we
ought to stop it; that this war ought to cease.
I hear of men making speeches around through
the country, and appealing to the women and
children to know if this war had not gone on
long enough, and if it ought not to be stopped
before any more blcod is shed. They appeal
to the old gray beaded men, and they sa-y you
have lost your brotners, and sons, aud grauj
Pous. The soil is wet with their blood. It is a
bloody war, an unnatural war, hence let us stop
it. r eUow-citizeus, it is true that many a brave
man has been lost. - We have lost many a brave
soldier. Perry county has buried many of her
cherished sons. On the sou ot the south we
have. buried many more, who there sleeps the
sleep that knows no waking. But we have buri
ed them with honor. They have died like true
patriots and soldiers, shouting "let me die like
a soldier for the Union." I would rather die
like a soldier than live like a traitor. They
want to stop the war to prevent the effusion of
blood, xellow-citizens, this Government is a
Government that we all love, or once loved.
We love the people, the country, the rivers, tbe
rocks, the trees, e-ery thing in it. They are
ours. It it our people, our rivers, our Like-t,
our shores, our rocks, our mountains, our rills,
our hollows. - It is our people, our Government,
the best And brightest that ever existed, on
earth, and before I would see this war stop un
til the Government is restored in all its former
power and supremacy, I would rather see the
graves ourselves, our sons 'and our brothers,
mountains high. I would rather see carcasses
sufficient to make bridges across the widest
streams, before this war should stop, until the
true soldier of the Union could wave his saber
in his strong right hand and cleave the head
from every traitor in the land. This Govern
ment is worth fighting for. It is worth gener
ations and centuries of war. It is worth the
lives of the best and noblest men in the land,
and may they all be sacrificed before the war
shall stop and leave an armed traitor in the land.
W e will nght tor this Government tor tlie sake
of ourselves and our children. Our little ones
shall read in history of the men who stood by
the Government in its dark and gloomy hours,
and it shall be the proud boast of many that
their fathers died in this glorious struggle for
American liberty. Logan.
One More Anxious Inquirer.
Some two miles up the river from St. Johns
bnrv, Vermont, is a primitive sort of a villase
called the "Centre." Here not long since, the
rustic vouth of the vicinity congreirnted for a
dance, "and dance thev did" said our informant,
"with an unction unknown to vour citv beiles
and beaux." One interesting young man bavin"
"imbibed" rather too freely, became fatigued
in the course of the evening, and wisely con
cluded to "retire" for a short rest. A door
ajar near the dancing hall revealed, invitingly
a glimpse of a comfortable bed, of which he
took possession with a prospect ot an undis
turbed " snooze." It so happened, howbeit.
that this was the ladies withdrawing room, and
no sooner had he closed his eves, than a p-iir of
blooming damsels came in from the hall and
beran adiustinir their disordered ringlets, the
dim light of the tallow candle not revealing the
tenant of the bed. , The girls had tongues (like
most of their sex), which ran on in this wise:
"what " nice dance we er having.-. Have you
heard anybody say anything about me, Jaue?"
"Why, la, yes, Sally! Jim Browu says he nev
er saw you look so handsome as you do to-night."
"Have you heard anybody say anything about
me?" About yon, why sartiug; I heard Joe
Flint tell Sam Jones that you was the best dress
ed girl in the room." Whereupon the dear
things chuckled, fixed up a little more, and
made off towards the ball-room. They had
hardly reached the door when our half-conscious
friend raised himself upon his elbow, and quite
intelligibly, though slowly, inquired; "Ha vou
keard an tarry lay amthing about Ul galtl"
"Phansy their phelinks" at that juncture!

At Hartford fConn.) a colored hotel waiter,
who had been drafted, made up his mind to get
up an exemption certificate. Being sound him
self, he procured a colored brother with weak
knee to go before the surgeon and personate
himself, the unsound leg being sufficient, he
supposed, to get him clear. But the leg was
not unsound enough.
The surgeon "passed" him, and the "Provo"
held 4iim as an able-bodied soldier in Uncle
Abraham's army. This scared the darkey with
a lame leg almost to death. Turning a little
pale in the face, he declared, "Lor a masu,
sar, I ain't him ain't no sojer at all!" "Who

The Northern Svmnathiiers with the Babel..
lion are improving their opportunity, to tha best
advantage, yet in a manner that will be very
likely to disappoint them bitierty, m the end.
The opposers of the Rebellion have, by hun
dreds of thousands, rushed into the war against
it. Almost by hundreds of thousands they have (
fallen. Their ranks, both in the army and at"
home, are thinned, while the northern allies of
the Reus. lion who, for the most part, havo staid
home, to do the voting, ret iin, very nearly, per
haps, their original numerical strength. Ihef
have Ion" wau-ned their time to strike and they
seem to think that it has now come. . They araj,
moreover, goaded to a.-tion, by the recent dis
asters that have befallen their "bie:hern of the
South." "Now or never" is the r opportunity.
Two things are, nevertheless, against them..
Hitherto the-r purposes h ne been e jneealed, or
at least, were ordy mitters of suspicion, or were
not susceptible of absolute procf They have
profes-iel to be loyal, and, in the abience of
legal evidence against them, thev have been
safe. This has emboldened the.ii. Of late,
they have become more outspoken, and aie
known to their neighbors. The r leaders are
known, and are watched. They stind on the
ery verge of open treason. Another step for
ward, and the mask will be thrown off, the pro
fession of loyalty abandoned. This will be a
sad day for them. They will then encouBter a "
storm of popular indignation, of which they lit
tle dream, now. The lines will be drawn..
There will be no neutrals. The loyal North
will then never fall asleep again, till the rebel
lion and its guilty cause are both buried.
Another thing a ill work against them. They
have been raising a clamor again t tlie employ
ment of aetro soldiers, and against the Pieai,.
dent's PrjcUmation of Emancipation iu the .
Rebel States, pretending to think it a shame that ;
the Rebellion cannot be put down bv white meat
without help from the negro. Already their"
clamors sgainst the drafting of white men are
revealing their unwillingness ilia: the rebellion .
should be put down at all. When they eome to
raise the flag of rebellion, themselves, they will;
show the Government and ail loyal people, the
necessity of extemliug the Emancipation Pro
clamation to all the Slates, liberating every
slave iu the nation, and calling upon every able
Douicd man among them to break loose irom the
slaveholders and come up to the support of the
Government. All wiil see that tue meisuro
cannot be taken too soon. When it is takeu, the
doom of the rebellion will be seilel, and with
it will come the dowufall and eteinai infamy of
all its supporters. -
The Sad Mistake.
From the Principle.
The' shrewd policy of fighting to put down re
bellion without invoking aid from the spirit of
Diberty ; of waging war upou despots, without
the rallying cry of "down with despotism ;,' of
calling npon the peop'.e to support their Gotem
ment, without daring to proc'aim that govern
ments are instituted to protect "the rights of
the people" is producing its natural effects,
and is increasing its appropriate retribution. ,
That policy bus afforded the opportunity, and
has suggested the expedient, of monopolizing, by

them upon the banners of the euemy ! The
spirit otfalit "Liberty," is. now being invoked
to resist the Government as a "despotism" the
hue and cry is raised, that "the rights of tlie
people" are in danger; and the Deception is
made practicable by the fact, that no stirring
appeals to the spirit of liberty, no war, cry
against despotism, no proclamation of war for
the defence cf humann rights, have emanated, .
officially, from the Government that is levying .
armies by hundreds of millions, for the support
and existence of ittelj, without lisping a word for
the claims of human nature, but contraiwise,
protesting thai it is only as a dire military neoes- .

is a sad thing for the people to be thus deceived, -and
sadder still that the Government by its ti

foundation for the deception.

out of the Draft, the Democrrtic faction a sort -of

with an energy worthy ofa good cause, and left
no stone unturned to make a strong fight. Now
mark the result. Every State officer chosen is
a Republican, every Congressman is a Republi
can, every State Senator is a Republican, and of
more than fifty members of the Lower House
heard from as we write, the Coppers have got
just two, and so far only two towns have given

has crumbled to its base, under the well-directed
peppering administered by Ueneral uiimore;
and Charleston, where the rebellion was hatch

the fire-eaters threaten to burn the city before
it shall be surrendered. All very well, .11 r.

a hell-bole is given to the names. . "With Paiij

Some fire thousand earnest, patriotic young
men have voluntarily entered the service of the
Stat for five years, and will, ere long, be in as
good condition for all emergencies as the United
States forces. Is it not right that the folks
who have the property to protect, and are not
expected to fight, should pay the bill? Some of
the subscribers who have "come down," 53,
$100, $300 and $500 ought to be ashamed of
their illiberality in view of the great importance
of the work that is expected from these "five
thousand." Suppose the scenes which New'
York was recently tha theater of should in any
measure be enacted in this city for the want of
an able militia force td!vent it, ould not
every capitalist then t''gr. double ai2. treble
the amount now subscribed would have been
good investments? "An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure." Wake up ye million-,
iares and men of means, and do what is demanded
ere it be too late. You have no right to expect
our coble youth to do all the fighting and all the
paying.' Let notfew York be more liberal to
ward her citizen-soldiers than the Queen City of

says tlie reason why children of this geueratiou
are so bad, is owing to the wearing of Balmoral
boots instead of old fashioned slippers. Mothers
find it too much trouble to take off their boots
to whip children, so they go unpunished; but,
hen she was a child, the way the slipper used
to do its duty was a caution to the whole family.

through the-ayne.liuin of notices posted on the

"Our fritmii are specially requested not .lo
