FALSE FKIKXDS OF THE SOUTH AT
There are many persons in the South who
saw that the Confederate cause was hopeless
twelve months before the catastrophe came ;
and they were anxious to drive a good bar
gain with tha United States Government,
while'our armies were still in the field. It
was perfectly obvious that General Lee would
have to leave Richmond in the fall of 1864 ;
and it was plain that the abandonment of
Virginia under the circumstances of the sit
uation at that time was tytal. But there were
a great many very violent persons that class
who never take counsel torn anything but
their passions who could and would see
nothing, and who still pretel of the "last
man and the last dollar" taking all the time
the same care which marked their course
throughout the war, to keep out of the army
themsekei, and confine themselves to exhorta
tions from boml)-proof3 and comfortable
homes. Those men were generally great ad
mirers of Mr. Davis, and applauded his Afri
can Church speech, just after the failure of
the negotiations at Fortress Monroe, in which
he said that " we would soon teach the Yan
kees that we were their masters'? this at a
moment when every well-informed man of
sense knew that the thing was hopeless, and
Mr. Stephens in despair (refusing to appear
with Messrs. Davis and Hunter at the Afri
can Church) had srone home. The crash was
so complete when it did come though just i
m proportion as it had been delayed that
these people were utterly stunned, and have
said very little since, or only threatened to
migrate without the slightest intention of
As these men were the most violent among
us during the war and the least belligerent
on their own personal account, so now that
the fighting is over, we see that there are a
great many people in Baltimore and New
York who are not satisfied and regret that
the war closed so soon. We are told by such
persons that if the South had only held out,
she would have triumphed and an enthusi
astic relative of ours in Washington thinks
that General Lee and General Johnston de
served to be hung for surrendering. If we
could only have gotten these people here dur
ing hostilities, as there are a great many of
them, we should have done a great deal bet
ter and might by this time have been a free
and independent nation. But it was dini
cult to get through the lines, and very un
comfortable in the South, and .the opportuni
ty was lost. With a disposition to remedy
the omission, they are very bitter now; they
seek to transfer the quarrel between the North
and the South from the tented field to the
mass meeting and the Copperhead newspa
pers ; and they insist as passionately on
"Constitutional rights," and advise the South
to " stand up," as warmly, as if they intend
ed to do something for us which they have
never done yet. T.. ere is as much bitterness
for the newspapers of this party against the
North in behalf of the South as there used
to be in the Charleston Mercury or the Rich
mond Enquirer. They have by no means
done with the quarrel. Their idea is that
the South can be set on its legs again and
make another fight. If she could be wallowed
and bitten still'more terribly by the lig dog
of the North New York and Baltimore
Copperheads will only feel disappointed by
as sporting gentlemen arc disappointed
when their terrier lias been overmatched.
They will smoke their cigars and sip their
-wine and trv Fenianisui. What becomes
of the terrier ? If they let him alone, per
haps he will get well.
The South has been whipped m this tight
fair and square and after a splendid effort.
Nobody laments the result more than we do.
Nobody has been more mortified at the
umihation accompanying than we have
een. But there is the ruggei I fact. W hat
s to be done ? We are in the Union we
re in the Union on compulsion and we
cannot get out of the Union. Fighting did
not get us out and talking will not do it
now. Is the South to occupy a sullen atti
tude, and spend her future railing at the
North and grinding her teeth ? Is this
profitable or dignified ?
Ail to wnom trie lnonmcauon ot our sit-
oiation is intolerable ought to go to Brazil ; all
who can bear the idea ot remaining here
ought jo accept the situation broadly. That
is precisely a Southern man's duty now ; no
whining, no cursing, no sentimentahtv, no
faint-heartedness but a full realization of
the situation, and then an acceptance or
rejection of it. If rejected, then the road is
to Brazil ; if accepted, then, with trust in
God and submission to His will, the duty is
to become in good faith an American citi
zen. If the South is eec.tionalized again, our
troubles are not over. If politicians engi
neer .the South into the position it occupied
m 18G0, then tbe hammer will fall upon us
again. If the antagonism is. maintained be
tween the North and the South, of course we
will be crushed. Just in proportion as the
bouth seeks to become a unit, just in the
same proportion will the North become
united against us. What the South requires
for its safety to sav, nothing of its prosper
ity is a broad national sentiment commen
surate with the whole country. And if we
yield no more, we must yield at least enough
tor this. The South can take up a position
which lalls short of this, and might by po
litical combinations carry sometimes an elec
tion, or a vote in the House of Representa
tives ; but it would he only the position of
Ireland in the British Empire, and the Irish
members in the House of Commons.
Therefore, we deeply regret .the studied at
tempt at the North to regalvanize the Dem
ocratic party, with the hope of getting for it
always the solid vote of the South. Just so
certain as this is done, the ascendancy of the
Republicans is made certain for many years,
and our allies will only make things worse
for us by keeping up the animosities of the
past. Andrew Johnson and William H.
Seward are precisely the two men to lay
down a national platform, and such a sys
tem of action is already indicated by their
late declarations but if the New York News
and the Philadelphia Age are to paint all the
banners the movement will be a failure.
No ; Mr. Toombs and Mr. Hunter and Colo
nel Florence and Ben. Wood ought to keep
in the background; when the piay is fairly
commenced, and the plot is somewhat ad
vanced and developed, they can step upon
the scene and take their places quietly with
out bein noticed.
OXE MOKE UNFORTUNATE.
The 3Jc.lile Jlhtcr tells the olio w
hv; sad story of an unfortunate woman
iTC-iMitly found on the streets of that
city iu a dying condition. It is a fear
ful story and should serve as a warning :
Her parents came to this city when
Mary was a child, from Montreal, Lower
Canada, and her father btiii; a man of
eminent qualifications, entered into busi
ness, and gave this, his only child, all
the advantages afforded by the best
schools in the North. At the age of
seventeen she visited Niagara Falls, and
was left at that great summer resort bv
her parents, in the hands of friends,
while they visited Lower Canada.
During their absence Mary attended the
grand balls given nightly at the Cata
ract House, and was dazzled with the
glittering array of fashion and splendor
surrounding her. Among her many ad
mirers was a young man of gay and
dashing manner, and fascinating appear
ance, "lie had known Mary and her
parents for many years, and set his heart
on the girl; but her parents rejected
him as a suitor for her hand, and he lost
no opportunity to secure interviews
with her in their absence. On this oc
casion Mary, at an unguarded moment,
surrendered herself to him and they
eloped. The old story now follows.
He plighted his honor to make her his
wife, but it was only the frivolous word
of a heartless deceiver, soon to be dis
regarded and forgotten.
lie deserted his victim in one of the
large cities of the North, and, driven
to want and desperation, she became a
public courtesan. After years of suf
fering and privation she made her way
home to this city, the scene of her bright
and happy childhood. She had fallen
to the lowest depths of degradation, bnt
fortunately, her parents left Mobile
shortly after their affliction, and return
ed to Canada, and they have never laid
eyes on their unfortunate daughter since
they imprinted the parting kiss on her
fair young brow at Niagara, Such is
the story of this miserable outcast, who
terminated her wretched career on
Tuesday night. "Was she an object of
charity ? Let her own words plead for
Tell me what is done to the man
That tempts and riots in woman's fall ?
Does his father curse him, is he scorned by
all ? "
Not he, for his judges are men like him
self. Or thoughthless women who honor their
Young blood wild oats a dashing young
They'll soon forget it in him.
But pity and pardon who are you,
That talk of pity and pardon to me?
What I want is Justice, justice, sirs,
Let both be punished, or both go free.
If it be on a woman such a shame fell,
What is it on a man ? now come, be just,
Remember she falls through her love for
And he through his" selfish lust.
What had I to gain by a moment's sin,
To weigh in the scale with my innocent
My womanly shame, my womanly name,
My father's curses, my mother's tears ?
The love of a man. It was something to
Was it worth it ? the price was my soul
Did I gain a soul his soul in . exchange ?
Behold me, here on the town.
I met his coach on the street, t'other day,
Dashing along on the sunny side,
With a liveried driver upon its box :
And lolling back in her listless pride,
The wife of his bosom took the air
She was brought in the marts where hearts
I gave myself away for his love,
She soid herself for his gold.
Cling to them, ladies, and shrink from me,
Call me opprobrious names, if you will,
The truth is bitter ; do you think I have
I'm a harlot, yes, but I'm a woman still.
"God said of old, to a woman like me,
" Go, sin no more," or your Bible's a lie;
But you, and such as you, mingle his mer
With go and sin till you die.
Die-! the word has a pleasant sound,
The sweetest I've heard for this many a

Any way I will end it here.

A NIGHT OF TERROR TWO MEN IM
PRISONED IN A MINERAL CAVE.
Jonah has won a historic fame, and claim
ed the sympathies of ninety generations for
being shut up in a whale's belly; and after
being swallowed so suddenly, no wonder he
should feel somewhat down in the mouth.
But Jonah has been outdone by Messrs. Jas.
Peacock and John Kelley, who were im
prisoned in the bowels of the earth all Wed
nesday night, separated from humanity hori
zontally by three hundred feet of water, and
perpendicularly by thirty feet of rock.
- Wednesday morning Mr. Peacock and Mr.
Ke ly went to work as usual at the recently
lead. They had to go down a shaft sev
enty feet deep ; then along a drift horizontal
300 feet ; there is then a rise of about eight
feet into a new crevice, when another drift is
reached about six hundred feet long, leading
to a cave of considerable extent, where they
had been excavating. Quitting time arrived,
and the miners started to return home. They
came to the descent bet ween the second and
the first, and sliding down this, one of the
men found himself in the water. In an in
stant he comprehended the; situation the
drift- between llicm and the shaft by which
they must return to daylight was filled with
water, and the water constantly rising.
At a little distance east was a ravine, be
side which was a shaft, which became tt'led
with water, and from that made its way
througu the network of crevices into this
drift. There they were imprisoned, no
knowing for how long; and tiserj was but
one possible- way to make th.ir situation
known to t!io-e upon the surface. A shaft
wa-5 being sunk into the cave iu which they
bad been at work, and :i small drill hole,
about two inches in diameter, had been bored
down through thirty feet of solid rock. By
using this a-s a speakins; trumpet, the men
below made those at work above, sinking the
shaft, aware of their unpleasant and danger
Of course; every ftrt was at once made to
rescue them. Ban" is were brought, sunk,
filled with water and drawn up; but for a
long time it seemed doubtful whether by this
method the quantity of water in the shaft
could be reduced faster than it was running
in. At last it became evident that the water
was lowering, and the men at the pumps"
(barre s) worked with renewed energy.
This continued all night, till daylight next
A candle or two had been lowered through
the drill hole, and a " wee drap" of stimulus,
by both of which the miseries of those below
were rendered lighter.
By six o'clock in the morning the water
had been drawn off to such an extent that
the men in the cave concluded they could
make their way out. They began to Avade,
the water being up to their necks; and, hold
ing their candles aloft, began to wade along
the drift. By and by they came to a place
where the cap rock, or roof of the tunnel in
which they were, was so low that the candles
could not be held above the water, and were
extinguished; while in some places there
was room enough between the water in the
drift so that they could keep their noses
where there was air ; in some places the tun
nel was completely filled with water for a
short distance, compelling them to forego
breathing for the time.
But at last the shaft was reached, and the
cold, wet, hungry, bruised, weary devils
that is the way the storj- was told to us, and
they certainly did not look like men or angels
were dragged to daylight once more.
About twenty men were engaged all night in
endeavoring to reduce the water in the shaft
so that the men could escape, to all of whom
the person rescued feel the deepest gratitude
for their untiring exertions. Dubuque Times.
The Female Eouestkiax. A lady's
horse to be perfect, should be all overhand
some, and well upon its haunches. If slight
ly hollow in the back, so much the better, for
it generally tends to ease in action, and to
lessen motion in the saddle. A lady should
never be heard upon the saddle that is, there
should be no bumping noise, not even in a
trot. She should sit so closely, and when
rising to the trot possess such elastic motion
from the foot-to the knee and the waist, that
her return to the saddle should seem as light
as a feather. Sic. should sit " square to the
front," and her liorses ears to speak as a
soldier ought to dress well with the but
tons ot the bosom of her habit. Nothing is
so bad as to sit with a lean to one side, and
when companions are following after, to let
them fear that a very little would cast her oil'
from the stirrup sile of her saddle. Her
hands should be down, but light, and her
arm, as well as every inclination of her figure,
should harmonize; wi;h the motions of her
steed, as if both p s3tsed the same volition.

Is told us by a Southira correspondent of
the Brooklyn Eagle :
" An Englishman and a Dutchman, so the
story runs, undertook, for a wager, to row
their respective skills from a place seven
miles below the Gap to a point above it.
The man who first arrived at the place of
destination was to be considered the champi
on, and to receive the stakes. Both started.
The Englishman pulled out vigorously,
while the Dutchman, with true Teutonic
imperturbability, suffered his opponent to
go ahead without an apparent effort to keep
up with him. When the Englishman began
to round the bluff, after passing the gap, tiie
Dutchman was " hull down " and almost
out of sight of his antagonist, w ho was
counting on a " sure thing of it." When
the Dutchman reached the gap, he run his
skilf on shore, raised it on his shoulders and
made his way with all possible dispatch
across the few hundred feet of intervening
space. When the Englishman arrived at
the point at which the race was to terminate,
what was his astonishment to find his oppo
nent in his skiff, calmly awaiting his ap
pearance, having relieved the weariness of
his stay by smoking, with Dutch leisure,
three or four pipes of tobacco. Whether
the Dutchman succeeded by this trick in
winning his wager is not known, but he
gave a name to the gap, and was more suc
cessful as a navigator than the noted and
" corked up " hero of New Orleans, the ter

proach the very silver spoons tremble on the

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection)
should ponder well upon the advantages of"
Lite Insurance, and should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
tlieir acquaintance. They should remember that
it recommends itscif in many instances, not mere
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a bounden
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot '
a moderate sum. The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comfort of his family to a
chance? albeit a promising one; or is he ni t
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as far
as l c cau, for bis wife, his children, his helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, : nd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure ar. adequate provision again t im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress ? How
miMiy men have I beard say : "Yes, hut I wont to
insure for a large sum when I do insure, and it is.
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay the premium o
&U),OU0,hc dies, and leaves his wile and child
hou eless, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust ou the cold kindness of ijttaU charitable
relations, without a cent to bury him or provide'
food for themselves. And this because he, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision consonant with his
circumstances, lor tiie wife who had been his
nurse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
gayment of $75 or S100, secure man' thousands,
trange that man, who owes to bis wife the chici
chain of his existence, the.- every day comfort of
his life, should be able to look heartlessly to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
when removed to that world, where to him, all is
liopc and consolation, he shall have wilfully left
in 'darkness and desolation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to struggle with the bard jus
tice of a bard hearted world. Resorting to Life
Insurance is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain profit upon that which is, at all times, an
Tbe general Agent of the Aetna has the gratifi
cation to state that quite a large number of sober
minded men in thi&com'mnnity have availed them
selves of this opportunity. All are invited to
inform themse.vis by applying to the subscriber.
