THE RETURNING SOLDIERS.
WRITTEN FOR THE SENTINEL.
The noble soldiers who have been fighting
for four long years in defense of the Union
and the Bight, are cow rewarded with suc
cess. They are returning to their hemes to
receive the blessings of their friends, and en
joy the honor they have so bravely won.
Let us give them an enthusiastic welcome,
and treat them in such a manner that they
may appreciate our gratitude for their valo
rous set vices, in our defense.
Many of them wh left good situations in
business, to join the army, will, for a time,
find difficulty in obtaining snch again. Those
in employment at home, therefore, who want
to hire, should patronise the soldiers.
It is supposed by some, that the soldiers,
who for a few years have been leading such a
wild and dangerous life, will, on returning
home, be worthless citiiens. But we baTe
seen enough of them already to know that
they are glad to'be restored to their old occu
pations in business, and many of them will
become better citiiens than ever before. And
while we have the pleasure of congratulating
the happy wives, mothers and sisters on the
safe return of their loved ones from the battle-fields,
let us constantly remember, and ex
tend our sympathy to, the bereaved ones.who
must forever wait in vain for the coming of
some near and dear one whose life blood
ebbed away upon some Southern battle-field,
or whose last breath was taken in some
The Nation's Benefactors.
We make the following extract from an
eloquent speech recently delivered by
Hun. John fcherman :
There is and will be during our gener
ation, a class of pe pie whom we must
never forget. Ttieir presence will con
stantly remind us of the perils and sacri
fices of the war. I nioau our wouuded
and disabled soldiers and the widows and
orphans of those who fell. The officers
and soldiers will soon mingle with our
people in the o!d employments of peace.
Their recollections will be the basis of our
history, and will be taught to their chil
dren and grand-children. They will be
rewarded by offices and honor. But those
who have been disabled need more. They
should not only be the honored pensioners
of the General Government but every
where should receive the hotn lge.respect,
attention and aid of all good citizens. The
hand, not of charity, but ot affection,
should ever he open to them. Ladies,
you have honored your sex and our coun
try by your organized aid to our soldiers :
now atopt the widows and orphans of the
dead soldiers as your sisters and your
children. You rich farmers, with your
teeming barns and most beautiful land,
take into your homes the children of theso
who have diedtin your servicejadopt them,
sustain them. Let them be taught to
reverence the martyrdom of their lathers.
Let us waive all the memories of this war,
all its sacrifices, all its glories, its battle
fields and marches, into one great bond of
patriotism, so that no citizen will hereaf
ter ever dare to raise his hand in rebellion
against his country, and so that we mny
visit with overwhelming power any foreign
nation that may seek to interfere with our
progress or our couutry.
Th New York Herald advocates negro
suffrage. Ia speaking of the recoastruc-
tion in Virgiuia it says:
"We think, however, that as African
slavery is out of the wav, the sooner this
question of negro suffrage is settled," and
settled 10 the favor of the liberated blacks,
the better it will be for the pacification of
the South aad tbe whole county on this
new national platfurm of universal liberty.
If not soon settled it will betome a ques
tion of miscbeivous' political agitation,
whereas, with its settlement on the basis
of universal suffrige, the political agita
tion of the negro question as well as the
slavery question, will be at an end. As
for the bugbear of negro social equality
in this cunection, society will take care of
that we have no fear of it whatever."
Dame Grundy was' the most good-natured
woman alive. Come what would,
everything was right ; nothing wrong.
One day farmer Gruady told a neighbor
that he believed his wife) was the most
even-tempered woman in tbe world, for he
never saw ber cross in his life ; and, for
once," he should like t) see her so. "Well,"
said the neighbor, ilgo into the woods and
bring ber a load' of the crookedeit wood
you can find, and if it don't make ber
cross, nothing will." Accordingly, to try
the experiment, he teamed borne a load of
wood every way calculated to make a
woman fiet For a week or more she
used the wood copiously, but not a word
of complaint escaped her lips. So, one
day, tbe husband ventured to inquire of

Gen. Grant at Chicago.
A dispatch, dated at Chicago, June 10th,
gives the following :
Lieutenant General Grant arrived in
this city to-day. The train containing
bim reached the southern depot at precise
ly 12:20. A salute "of thirteen guns an
nounced bis arrival. Committees from
the Common Council, citizens and Board
of Trade received him as he alighted from
the cars, and be was escorted through sev
eral streets to the Great Fair buildiDg.
All along the line of his route he was
gree;ed with the liveliest and mrot heart
felt applause. A more inspiring scene
was never witnessed in Chicago. His old
war horse "Jack," now tbe property of
the Sanitary Commission, was in waiting
for him at the depot, and be mounted him
with alacrity. He manifested much pleas
ure at aain seeing his old favorite. " On
reaching Union Hall be was escorted to
the platform, when such a storm of ap
plause broke forth as was never beard be
fore in that place. Tbe hall was densely
packed with people.
After the applause had ceased, Gen.
Hooker said : "Ladies and gentlemen,
allow me to present to you our welcome
guest, L'eut. Gen. Grant. He is tbe offi
cer wbpse achievements you have heard,
read and admired so much for the last
four yeors, and whose career has reflected
imperishable honor and glory on you and
on our land. Enthusiastic applause.
I have been requested by the authorities
of this city, by the represeutativis of its
trade and commerce, and by the projectors
aud contributors of this great Fair which
you are here to honor and aid by your
nresence the work of the noble women of
the Norihwest to welcome Lieut. Gen.
Grant to Chicago. Long continued ap
plause. As it regards tbe Lieu'. Gener
al, and as it regards yourselves, no more
pleasing task and do duty more grateful
could be devolved upon me. Pre- eminent
ly patriotic and pre-eminently appreciative,
this people have watched with intense in
terest every step you havo taken, from tbe
begiuning of the rebellion to its conclu
sion : and they have followed you through
all your campaigns with the proudest sat
isfaction. Ibey have sympathized with
you in all your labors, your perils and
your privations, and they have gloried in
jour unrivaled victories and successes.
Cheers. io people have greater cause
to be proud of a representative in the field
than we have bad cause to be proud of you.
No man lives who'bas been more success
ful in his campaigns, or who has served
his Government with more fidelity, or who
has been more cons ant and more true to
the great principles of humanity and hu
man progress involved in the rebellion,
than the great chieftain who is now before
us. It is for these reasons we tender to
you our sincere and heartfelt gratitude for
your welfare and safety, and that we ex
tend to you thj warmest welcome of this
city and this people. I feel that tbe most
acceptable introduction I can make to the
citizens of the great Northwest is to trans
fer you to the care of the vast assemblage
gathered here to greet and honor you.
With this 1 leave you with them.
Gen. Hooker then led Gen. Grant to the
front of the stage amid a perfect whirl
wind of applause. Every throat in that
vast assemblage was made vocal to the
highest notj. Hats flew in the air, hand
kerchiefs waved, hands were vigorously
clapped, and, in fact, the whole crowd
seemed moved by the inspiration of de
light. This lasted several minutes. At
length the applause subsided.
General Uraut then responded : "La
dies and gentlemen I never made a
speech myself, and, therefore, I'w.ll ask
Governor Yates to return to you tne
thanks which I should Lil to express did
1 attempt it."
Cheers and laughter greeted this unex
pectedly short speech of the Lieutenant
Ex-Govcrnor Yates then came forward
aad spoke ia a happy manner for about
ten minutes, commending General Grant
aod bis services in the highest terms.
At tbe conclusion of Governor l atss
remarks, an incident occurred that will
certainly pass into history: Upon the bal
cony in full sight of thousauds, stood the
two heroes of tbe age Generais tyrant
and Sherman. Calls were made for a
speech from the latter. In response, Gen
eral Sherman replied, that he could not be
induced to comply with the request; that
he would always cheerfully back np and
obey his beloved Commander-iuChief, and
he was sure General Grant would not or
der him to make a speech. Cries of "or
der him to make a speech, General," broke
from the building. General Graut quiet
ly, and with that self possesi n that so
emineutly marks him, replied with a smile :
"I never order a soldier to do anything
which I cannot do myself." The effect was
electrical. The building trembled with
tbe applause that this admirable passage
invoked. The I'otjngest BooTfi. Tbe youngest

General Jackson's Motto.
Think before you act, but when the
time for action eomes, stop thinking.
This is the true doctrine. Many men
fail in life, and go down to the grave with
hopes blasted and prospects of happiness
unrealized because they did not adopt and
act upon this motto. Nothing so prepares
a man for action as thought ; but nothing
so unfits a man for action in the course of
action. Bitter by far adopt some course
and pursue it energetically, even though
it may not be the best than to keep contin
uilly thinking without action. "Go
ahead" ought to be printed in every young
man's ha and read until it becomes part
of bis nature, until be can act upon his
own judgement, and not be turned from
his course by every wind of interested sd
vice. In conclusion we would say, "Think
before you act; but when the time for ac
tion comes, stop thinking."

The Capture of Jeff. Davis.
General Pritchard's Account of the Affair.
From the Philadelphia Bulletin.
Brigadier General Pritchard, of Michi
gan, who captured, the rebel chieftain in
Georgia, is still in this city. Last evening
he visited the club rooms of the Union
League, and was introduced to a large
number of members. After inspecting
the different apartments, be wentHo the
principal drawing room, and made a brief
statement of the'eircumstaoces attending
tbe pursuit aod capture of Davis and his
. It appears that General Pritchard (then
Lieutenant-Colonel) with his detachment
of the 4tb Michigan Cavalry, fll in with
a detachment of -the the 1st Wisconsin
Cavalry, whose officer lafurmed bim that
he was ou Davis' trail. Magnanimously
allowing them to pursue it; v General
Pritchard moved his party to the left, and
making a long detour, by a rapid - march.
reached about nightfall a wood where- he
teamed that a party was encamped whom
he suspected of being those of wlr.m he
was in search. Posting guards all around
the wood, he gave orders that at daylight
the main column should advance upon it.
But about three or four o'clock' in tbe
morning .he beard firing to his left, and
then occurred the unfortunate collision
between his men and those of the 1st
Michigan. Hurrying to the scene, the
mistake was .discovered, arfd bo returned
to his command.
Te advauce on the wool was made
and was a complete surprise to tho camp,
for there was no resistance. Pritchard
was requested not to disturb a- cotrple of
tents, as tbe occupants were ladic, who
were dressing. He complied with the
request. By and by a couple of ladies,
one of whom wore a white night-gown
aod a shawl, and who proved to be Mrs.
Davis, .appeared aod asked that an old
lady with them might be al.owe j. to go to
a spring to get some water. The "old
lady" wore a lady's water proof cloak fas
tened about the waist and reaching to the
heels ; a large shawl, with a Hack ground
nd colored border, covered tbe bead and
upper part of the person, and the wearer
carried a tin bucket. The request was
granted, and a couple of soldiers were sent
with the "lady" to the pring.
On the way one of the soldiers detected
the boots of a man beneath the feminine
skirts, and at once suspected that they
bad Davis. He was taken back to Col
Pritchard and soon confessed that bS was
Jefferson Davis. Preparations were at
once made for removing' bim and the
whole party, and they were safely con
veyed to the coast. It will be observed
that tbe main facts of tbe capture are al
most precisely as they were first reported.
The accounts of Mrs. Davis' conduct
are not as correct. She did not make the
reported remark about "the Presi Jeut" or
complain of anything, except upon one
occasion. That was when she requested
that the guards should not carry their
guns cocked. Col. 'Pritchard had to ex
plain that they were only half ocked;
that they were the Speneer carbine, which,
when a charge is in the chamber, has to J
be kept at a ba'.f cock, and that there was
no dauger. After this explanation there
was no more complaint. .
Wives of Literary Men.
A man of literary pursuits sins against
himself and the woman he marries, if he
takes one who is but a votary of fashion
whose empire is in the drawing-room, aud
not in t'-e seclusion of domestic life. And
he marry a literary pedant, he will still
bo more unfortunate unless the jsedantry
be that of a young, active, and mquiring
mind, which is pleased with its first essay
into tho regious of 'learning. She should
opt iese rubiest he first wife of Milton,
whom the poet married from sudden fancy.
Unable to eudure his literary habits, aud
finding his. house too solitary for her rom
ping disposition, she beat his newhews,
and conveyed herself away at the expira
tion of the honey moon! Nor like the
wife of Bishop Cooper who jealous of his
books, consigned the labor of many years
the flames. Nor like the wife , of - Sir
Henry Seville, whose affection was "So
strong as to causa her frequently to destoy
bis most valuable manuscripts, because
they monopolized 30 much of his attention.
Neither should she resemble in character
Mrs. Barclay, Tho made both herself and
husband ridiculous for her great public
admiration of his abilities, fche consider
ed him a little less than a demi-god. She
should either be like the lady of
Dacier, who was his equal in erudition
and his superiorin taste, but whose good
sense caused her to respect and give place
j ber husband at all times and on all oc
casions, and whose love for him kept her
from the slightest feeling of presumption
because she was bis equal in miud or as
the wife of Wieland, a domestic woman,
who, though not much given to study,
was of a calm, even temperament, and al
ways soothed iustead of exciting her hus
band's irritable nature.
Anecdote of Gen. Grant.
While engaged in business at Galena
ho bought a lot of bides of a neighbor
which did not prove to be of very excel
lent quality, although so represented. The
seller during the war received a commis
sion of Captain iu an lllioois regiment,
which wae not long since transferred to
the Army of the Potomao. At a review
by the Lieutenant General, this regiment
being iu line, Grant's sharp eye fell upon
the captain. Advancing bis horse nearer
to the line he thus addressed him : " Well,
B , how are musty, mouldy, maggoty
calf skies going now iu Illinois ? I have
not got over my foudnes for dickor, and I
like to keep posted on the markot." The
captain's contusion was lessened by the
General's familiarity, and the name of
"Captain Calfskins," by which General
Grant humorously bade him good-bye,
will stick to him iu the regiment so long
as it remains in service.
Foreign Views of Jeff Davis [...]
New York, J une 10. Foreign papers
by the Africa's mails comment freely on
the capture of Davis. All of them, both
Eijgluh nd French, agree th-t Dvi "
should not be hanged.
TbeLondon Times (!) says : The intel.
hgaowe of the capture of Davis will pro
diisa feeling of uneasiness and anxiety
ia ifvery country iu Europe. Tbe inhab
itants of these islands hive little reason to
sympathize with Mr. Davw,andifwe'plead
foe his life, it is not from any esteem fir
his motives. He is known as one of the
most inveterate calumniators of this coun
try, whose policy it was to stir up the feel-"
ings of every class of his eounfrvmen
against the Uuited States. We,remember
bim as the author aod origioatcV of the
famous Mississippi scheme ofreDndiatinn-
His plan of rebellion was founded on tha
idea that tbe deprivation of cotton would
be intolerable, aod, driven by hard ne-
ce-fity, we should be compe lied to support
me oouiq who tne wnoie ot our empire.
The London Post says:. The absence
cf that material elejient of all human un
de takings, success, will alon3 prevent
Davis from taking his place in after times
by the side of Washington. ' '?
-The Daily News says : If he were answ-
earable for nothing more than the great
sacrifice of life eau3ed by the rrjection of
Mr. LincpL'g propos; 1 u Hampton Roads,
the-weight of sues a load of reionstbili

Origin of the Printer's Devil.
When Manitiu3 the elder set np in
business, at Venice, he came in pos
session of a little negro boy. This
boy was known over the city as the
"little black devil," who helped the
mysterious bibliofactor along, and
Rome of the ignorant persons believed
him to be none other than the embod
iment of Satan, who helped Aldus ia
the prosecution of his profession.
One day Aldus, to dispel this strange
hallucination by publicity, displayed
the young imp to the poorer classes.
Upon the occasion -he made a Tery
charaoteristio speech: "Let It be
known in Venice, that I, Aldus ilani
tius, printer to the Holy Church and
Doge, have this day made public ex
posure of the printer's devil. All
those who think he is not $esh and
blood may come and pinch him."
