Ai will be seen, the writer.states that two St.vxtok
votes were thrmvii out at Nal-ors' precinct, in Har
deman county, for the same reason that is, because
they contained the names of more candidates than
the electors liad a right to vote for. This is a clear
offset to Uie two Yct.cei- votes rejected in Shelby

In the Apjmtl of the gams date we also find the
following statement :
"Another offset to 'Tne two Votes.' A letter
now lying liefoiv us, from a respectable gentleman
living m the neighborhood of Whiteville, states that
a voter at that place was permitted to take out of
the ballot-box a Democratic ticket which he Said

Upon this the Appeal comments :
"Will our neighbors 0f the Whig and of the Di
git it Kii'iniirr inform us whetlier this proceeding
was legal or illegal ? We cannot anticipate, from
their a-Mutem'"-m determining "what is a ticket,"
and other like metaphysical points, that their decis
ion of this question will be t-atisfactory to our mind;
and we therefoie consider it better to apply in :td-
vance to the pr.iper sources ol instruction. " In the
ease of Washburn vs. Kipley, 1-t ses.-ion of the ilst
Cpcgres-, I SCO, this very point was decided as fol
low: - "Tlie committee are unanimously of the opinion
that when the votes are taken by "ballot, and seju

.he'iuay give the officer half a ilozrti tcrolls of paper.
i.yery voter has a right to fold up his ticket, and

to return to the cise at W hiteville. If the
voter did really at lirc-t dejosit a Democratic
ticket, the illegal change would make a dif
ference of two in favor of -Mr. Stanton. If, 011 the
other hand, he first voted the Wnig ticket, it would
make a diil'drence of three. In either case, the
-nppo?nl error in the -1th dbtncl of this county
would be neutralized.
Now pet hap our Whig friends will insist that
Mr. Slanlon, or his friends, sliall send the proof of
these fai-ls to the Governor. Mr. S., we are as
.suiVjJ. will be guilty of no such egregiou f.illy.
..Tlie Governor has no power to correct the error,
and any one who would go about taking the proof
7or presentation to the Governor would go upon
wot.-e than an unprofitable errand. We are ati
tiionyed to say for Mr. Stanton, that whenever
these matters are to be investigated before the only
tribunal which has authority to inquire of them, he
will he found ready to vindicate his right to the
steal in Con-ires?, wiiich he beliereshas been fairly
conferred uonhim by Uie people of this district.
It is now very evident 11 Mr. Vkieoer prefers
to tnke the chance, of another contest before the
people to an i nvestigalion of de facts in this case
by theproper tribunal. In an inquiry into illegal
and iniprojier voting he would be considerably
wiir-led, and he hat penetration to see it.
WHO SOI.I) THE GUXS.
A -hort time since, the ISanntr thought President
Pm:rce'. cabinet must be a set of Goths. Vandals,
and Huns, for ordering, as it stated, the two old
cannons used by Gen. .Iackson at New Orleans to
be old. Weaskedfor its authority for this charge
arid it replies by saying that it 'deried its informa
tion from the N. Y '. Democrat, anadministration pa
per." .Now, we derived our information from the
N. Y. Natimal Democrat, and our uuderstandingof
fiat paper was that it said the order for the sale of
thee cannons was issued under the late administra
tion. We have before us, too, the N. 0. Commer
cial Jlulktin, a whig paper, in which we find the
fellowing paragraph :
The Xational Democrat says that the two old can
nons used by Gen. Jackson in the battle of New
OrIe.ni, which had been ohjeetsof curiosity in the
navy yard at Brooklyn, were sold under a "general I
order wade during the lute administration to soil all ,
the old guns. The guns were highly prized in the !
navy yard as relics of the memoir.b'eSth of January,
1S1:"), and were objects of much curiosity ona'c- 1
count df their singular construction. The officers of
theyard appealed twice to the government to spare
those two old guns, but the order was irre-ocablc,
and they were sold. 1
It looks as if the Jianncr, in its eagerness focast !
censure on President Pierce's cabinet, has made the I
Xational Democrat authority for a charge it has ,
never made. It looks, too, as if the "Goths. Van- j
dais and Huns," -were in President Filuiore's cab- ,

nesday over the body of a young man found dead, in
the grave-yard in South Memphis. The young
man was a native of Virginia, and his a brother
living at Lynchburg. The deceased was named
Ja.mks W. Thompson, and came on board of a boat j
bound for Memphis at Cairo. He waseutirelvdes- '
titute of money, and although the passengers offer
ed him assistance, he steadily refused any aid. We
are under the imptcssion that, failing to get em
ployment, he wandered about, shunning all associa

heat. Several letters were found in the possession
of the deceased. One from Q. Q. Isbell, enclosing
a certificate of membership in the Clover Hill (Ap

Female Bakreiu. The New York Sunday Allan
fulls the following sxmie what amusing story of the
new lield to which female labor is beiug directed:
Miss Caroline E. Putnam of the city of Salem,
Ma-ts.. lias announced to the public, that she has
adopted the profession of a barber, aud will take
the beard oil" gentlemen's chins at the rate of six
cents the mug.
Miss Caroline E. Putnam, of Salem, is not the
first female in the world who has taken up the
trade of a baiber. Some ten years ago, Madame
Josephine d'Courcey, the pretty, aye, beautiful
wife of a French barber, who hail a shop at Cham
bers street, then called the Granite Buildings, and
known as the Irving House, found herself a widow
with some three or four children to support The
husband liad omitted to leave her any money, or
other means when he died. The children were to
be taken care of; and Madame d"Courcey was not
disposed to neglect thciiL She at once resolved to
keep up the shop, ami enact the part of barber.
Her determination was soon made known and ap
plauded. Ever man of gallantry said she was
right; anil every man who was disposed to indulge
in the luxury of a shave called at her establishment
In less than a month she had four times as ninny
customers as she could attend to. She therefore
called in the aid of Josef du Jtots, an aged knight
of the razor. Josef was a good shaver; but nobody
wanted him about their chins, while there was the
least possible chance of calling the skill of Madame
d'Cource into action. And how often would they
wait for hours, for an opportunity to place their
faces under the pressure of her fair hands.
One bright and beautiful day in tho month of
June, an aged citizen of the West End, a man of
some five or six hundred thousand dollars, and a
widower at that, was seen toddling dowji Broad
way. On reaching the comer of Broadwa and
Chambers street, a small placard arrested his atten
tion. Though the letters were large, they were
badly printed, and the old gentleman found "it diffi
cult to read them.
"Heyday! what does all this mean?" he said as
he vainly attempted to decipher the placard "what
does all this amount to?''
And then he took out his specs, carefully wiped
them, and was enabled to ascertain that Madame
Jo?ephine d'Courcey would stave gentlemen!
"L'pon my word!" ejaculated the old fellow, "I
believe I did not shave to-day. I ought to be
shaved. I always shave daily.""
And he passed his hand across his chin, and was
satisfied that he did require shaving. Into the
shop he popped, and found it empty.
"Voting woman," said he, as he entered, "do

1 He took it, threw his head back, was lathered in
! a twinkling, shaved in no time!
After the operation was concluded, the vencra-
ble citizen was cliamponetl and powdered and he
looked for all the world like a regenerated sinner.
".My dear child," said he to Madame Josephine,
''it appears to me that this business is not one that
yon ought to follow. It exposes you, my child, to
danger and temptation. Would you like to mar
ry?" Madame Josephine blushed as none but a
Frecnchwonian can, and nodded an affirmative.
1 he next day the shop was closed two weeks
afterwards the papers announced the marriage of
the Hon. H d to Madame Josephine d'Courcey.
The happy pair made a tour to Niagara and Sara
toga, the next winter went to Italy and the south
of France, relumed happy and contented, and are
now living in splendor in one of the fashionable
avenues up town.

Mr. Trist, we imagine, however, J .mistaken in
some of his dateSj though we. may 'readily credit
die truth of hi? interesting anecdote. Tlie battle
of San Jacinto; Tor instance, was foughC.soine years
after tlie expiration of Gen. Jackson's.; term. Mr.
Trist says: -.'.
"Shortly after becoming his private secretary, (at
the period orthe dissolution of his'first cabinet.) I
accompanied him from Washington . to the 'Rip
Raps,' an artificial mound of stone, formed in the
Chesapeake Bay, opposite to" Point 'Comfort, as
the foundation Tor .Catle Calhoun; one of the de
fences of diose waters; then in the process of erec
tion. There, amidst the sounding surges, in one of the
temporary buildings provided for officers' quarters,
ho took up his abode for the few weeks he could
devote to the invigoration of his health.
One evening, after I liad parted with him for the
night, revolving over the directions, he bad given
about gome letters I to to prepare, one point oc
curred, on which I was not pcrfecdv satisfied' as to
what those directions liad been. As the letters
were-to be sent off early next morning, I returned
to his chamber door, and, tapping gently, in order
not to wake him if he had got to sleep, my tap was
answered by "come in."
He was undressed, but not yet jn bed, as I had
supposed he must be by that time. He was sitting
at the little table with his wife's miniature a very
large one, then for the first time seen by me be
fore him propped up against some books; antl be
tween him and die picture lay an open book, which
bore the marks of long use.
This book, as I afterwards learned, was her
prayer book. The miniature he always wore next
to his heart, suspended round his neck by a strong
black cord. The last thing he did, every" niht be
fore lying down to his rest, was to read m ttat
book with that pictmc under his eyes.
In Washington, where jthe servants brought by
him from Tennessee had not, any more than their
betters generally are diere, been proof against the
influences under which so many of low grade and
of high, become what, in homely phrase, is called
"thoroughly spoiled and utterly ruined," on going
one day into the President's office, I found that I
had broken in upon a trte a tetc between him and
Charles, his negro driver. Charles was looking die
culprit to his best; that is, ns well as permitted by a
lurking smile, which betrayed his consciousness
that nothing very terrible was coming. As I en
tered, the General was saying, "Charles, you know
why I value that carriage. This is the second time
it happened. And, if ever it happens again, I will
send you back to Tennessee."
This lecture and threat, Charles had brought up
on himself by having left, his coach box: as the na
tural consequence of which, tlie horses had run
away, and broken the carriage.
In this scene, I was struck with the fact that the
General's thoughts and feelings dwelt upon the
carriage, upon the injury sustained by it, without
turning at all upon the expense or the injury to the
horses, noble dapple greys his favorite color of
his own rearing, ami descendants of his famous
horse, Truxtoiu I at once inferred ttat diis "why"
had reference to his wife; and ujion inquiry of Col.
Earle, my conjecture was verified. Because the
carriage tad been hers, it was better dian any new
one; it must never be given up, but always re
paired and made :is good as new, though the cost
might be greater ttau that of a new one.
Such was this "roaring lion'' as, by the world
outside, he was believed to be for all around him;
always "ripping and tearing" as 'tis teimed in wes
tern plirase, aud "By the eternal" ever in his mouth:
a habit, by the by; which I have in vain taxed my
recollection for a single instance of. Such was he,
habitually, regularly, and without shadow of turn
ing. So all about him, whatever the relation in
which they stood, and in whatever capacity depen
dent upon him and his humor for their comfort and
happiness, he was this always never any diiug
Of course I do not mean to say that he was not
subject to anger, aud at times to the most vehement
outbursts of passion. I have no doubt lie could be,
and has been, a peifect volcano. Though I never
witnessed auy thing of die sort, there was that about
him which told that he could be so, and confirmed
what you heard of the fearfulness of his wrath. I
speak of what he habitually was.
This peculiar tenderness of nature entered larjjely.
no doubt, into the composition ofdiat manner of I
his, with which so many have been struck, and !
which was of the highest available stamp, as re
garded both dignity and grace. Mr. Jefferson was
strongly impressed with this on their meeting at '
Lynchburg that meeting made memorable by the i
toast, which because of the then apprehended and
subsequently realized political consequences of Jack- i
son's position before the country, washy some never 1
forgiven: "Honor to die man who has filled the i
measure of his country's glory." No better judge
of maimers lived than Jefferson, whose own were 1
a charm to every one who approached him, and '
whose associations through life tad been such that !
it must have been no easy matter for him to receive j
an impression of that kind, and yet, so strongly had I
that impression been, that many jcars afterwards
but the year before his death upon being visited ,
by an old friend whom he had known amidst the
j most polished circles of Paris, he dwelt upon this
i point as the mot surprising thing about Jackson,
j How he could have got such manners which, for,
their polish no less than their dignity, would have ;
j attracted the attention of every one at any court in j
J Europe was to him an enigma. This was related ,
I tomemany yearsafier Mr. Jefferson's death by the '
j gentleman referred to.
There was more of the woman in his nature than I
1 in that of any man I ever knew more of woman's
j tenderness towards children and sympathy with
' them; often has he been known, though he never
had a child of his own, to walk up and down by
' the hour with an infant in his arms, because by so
I doing he relieved it from the cause of its crying;
I more also of woman's patience, and uncomplaining,
unnoticing submissiveness to t rival causes of irrita
! tiou. There was in him a womanly modesty and
delicacy, as respects the relation of the senses. Sci
pio was not more continent more chaste would be
the right word, as to him than I feel sure he was,
in thought as well as in conduct. By no man was
the homage due to woman, the only true homage
she can receive faith in her more devoutly ren
dered. This chaste tenderness towards the sex was
constantly manifesting itself, and in a manner so
unstudied, so perfectly spontaneous, as to show that
it was as natural to him as to breathe. As regards '
patience, 1 tave often seen his temper tried to a '
degree that it irritated mine to think of" by those;
neglects in small things that go so hard with an in- '
valid as he always was at the period when I knew
him and which are so apt to test one's temper, t
But diingsof this kind passed off without so much
as a shade coming ovor his countenance.
Jefferson's own manners were the fruit of culture
and opportunity; the result of thatself-improvemcnt 1
in all things, which, from his boyhood, he had ever I
been intent upon; and which, in this particular, was I
favored in the highest possible degree by the 1
models constantly before him. And so had it been j
with even other specimen of fine maimers he had ,
ever met with. But here was a man, bred in the t
backwoods, amidst die "rough and tumble in all its
forms and modifications, peaceable and hostile, of j
the "boys" diere, among whom he had naturally 1
assumed the post of captain and leader. True, the
"camp" had always been recognized as being next
to the "court," as a school for maimers; but this I
camp had been a very different sort of thing from
that of a backwoods Indian-fighter. Here was a '
man whose contacts had never been but of this de
scription, and yet whose match, in point of grace j
and dignity of manners, it would bo difficult if not
impossible, to find in all the courts or the old world. I
Not the grace and dignity, such as they are found in j
the Indian warrior, ami which display themselves in '
his attitudes, and in his way of folding his blanket
around him, but the grace and dignity of the polish
ed gentleman, and manifesting themselves in each
and every particular embraced in the meaningof the
word "manners," when thus applied.
Of the numberless cases which mirfit be collected
corresponding to those above related of the impres
sion made by his manner, I will mention one now,
because of die idea it affords ofliim under another as
pect, which was quite a common one widi him,
namely, a dry archness in administering a gende re

tocracy of the island, among tho rest Uie "Duke,"
being desirous of seeitig General Jackson, an hour
was appointed for him to receive her. A few min
utes before tha time arrived. Mr. Buchanan, who
knew of die arrangement, or perhaps was a party to
it, upon going into die President's office fonnd him
there, immersed in work, and very contrary to his
wont, not at all neat in his dress and personal ap
pearance; he had not even .shaved; aud had a sloven
ly look odierwise, which he had never before seen
in him. Alarmed at the effect this might have u
011 die expected visitor, Mr. B. ventured upon a
hint to the effect that the hour being come, it would
be advisable to engage in making preparadons.ibr
"Mr. Buchanan," observed the gentleman, "I
once heard tell of a man in Tennessee, who got along
very well in the world, and finally made a fortune,
by minding his, own business." Saying which, he
arose and left the room. In .1 very few minutes
afterwards be walked into the parlor, to which- Mr.
B.bad repaired, presenting as neat an appearance in
every respect, as ifhetad passed hours at his UA'-ct.
Thelady departed, expressing the same admira
tion of his manners that hundreds had experienced
Mr. Buchanan, being upon the carper, I will con
clude with another incident which I tave heard
him relate more than once.
The time this occurred was when the American
settlers in Texas that is, those among our coun
trymen who hail seen fit to sell their birthright for
a mess of pottage, and to exctange the title of
American citizen, with all the securities thereunto
appertaining, for ttat of sulject of the Emperor
Iturbide and his successors, legitimate or illegiti
mate when those of our countrymen, together
with suchodiers as had generously (but not justly,
seeing it Wis in violation of our acknowledged in
ternational obligations,) flown to their aid, were
known to be in full retreat, with Sim Houston
at their head, before Santa Anna and his advancing
arm. At ttat precise juncture, a breathless sus
pense prevailed throughout our country as to how
the thing was to end; whether the Americana would
make a stand, and try their.hands at a fight whilst
still in Texas, or run clear across the the borderand
thus get under the cover of that nationality which
they had allowed themselves to be tempted to di
vest themselves of, by the advantages, whose price
was, fo become American subjects.
In this state of things, at this critical moment,
which soon after terminated in the news of the
battle of San Jacinto. Mr. Buchanan called to see
the President, whom he found in his office, with
the map of Texas before him. He had been tra
cing the progress of Panta Anna (forwards; and
that of his pupil (backwards,) and did not seem
at all elated at die spectic'e presented by thee
movements.- As Mr. Buchanan looked over the
map, the General, putting his finger on San Ja
cinto, said, "Here is the place. If Sam Houston
is worth ono bawhee ho will make a stand here,
and give them a fight" A few days after, the
first new3 was received at Washington of what
tad taken place at that very spot.
The Refctei) Bourron. The Fond du Lac Union,
referring to the Rev. Eleazer Williams, who has of
late become notorious because of his assuming to be
the Dauphin of France, says:
In a conversation wo had with him on board the
steamboat a few days previous to his arrival here,
on the subject of his parentage, he Stated that-evi-dences
were being prepared for the press, which
would set the question at rest Among other things,
that the affidavit of his reputed mother, lately pub
lished, was a gross deception, not by her, but by
the interpreter (bribed, no doubt) who falsely in
terpreted her language. This woman docs not un
derstand Uie English language, and when the sub
stance of the- published affiJavit was afterwards
told her, she denied ever having made it, and as
serted to the contrary, ttat she had m.-.de an affi
davit that lie was not her son. Her sUitemnt will

A Case of Love. A vouncr man. who had been

beared that the "young !a(!y,"'hard-licartrd crea

Life has its moments
Ofbeautv and bloom
But they hanglike sweet roses

As lovely as brief :
They meet us when happy,
And leave us in grief.
Hues of the morning.
Tinging the sky;
Come on the sunbeams,
And offnith them fly.
Shadows of evening
Hang soft on the shore,
Darkness enraps them.

In brilliance appear,
Dawning in beauty.
Our journey to cheer.
Round U3 they linger.
