the military force here is 1pall in comparison
with the amount of work to be done, two North

are here on a visit-James Redpath, of Boston,
and Kane O'Doimell, of Philadelphia-were in
vited to re-open the public schools an re-organize
the system of-education on the most liberal basis.
The 'school bHildifgs Were 12nedintely taken
possessibn of anda Bureau of Instruction opened.
Tuesday and Wednesday were named as. the
times when applications for te privilege of teach
ing either at public or private schools would be
considered. Certain of the old teachers applied
to be re-instated in their former positions. There
were 'some interesting scenes at these interviews.
The applicants were received with d stinguish
ed consideration, and evidently believed that
they wouild be at once installed aster a favorable
opinon had.been expressed as to their titness.
-.They were asked if they ,were willing to take the
oath of-ail.mganev. The fir'st :o apj cants were
astonished that "females" shiould b required to
take the oath, but (possibly because tey looked
on Divine truth as too precious a thing 1 to b
wasted on Yatnkees, for they were v'olent rebels,)
? they said they had never been polintcir.s, and of
course would do whatever the authorim.is thought
right. They were then asked:
. "Are you aware, ladies, that there' is no dis

gchools between any -class of children-that if'
white children apply, they shall be,admitted,
and if colored'children apply, they shall be ad

"In the same school, madam."
One of these ladies, not figuratively, hut lite

After a sufficient time had been given to the
two ladies to restore nose and mouth to the
pristine corzdition, they were courteously inform
gl that a new order of things had come ;- that
the old South, with all its prejudices and aristoc
racies, were done away with for ever; that a~
large majority of the first fa'ulies, so-called, of
South Carolina, had already been reduced to
beggary, and that before the war ended there
would be very few of .them who would not be~
paupers; that .a high social order would e~

were any, of educating negrd children. Thef

whose rule had departed forever, and of a phil

They had never seen the subject presented in
that light ; they had never thought of it before;
the ladies said they saw,no objection to taking a

the case, and would call with them to-morrow.

How THE YANKEES TREAT "Union" PEOPLE.
-We had occasion to s'et forth, a short tinle
since, how the Yankees treat -Union people,
so called by themselves, but whom we e
appropriately style tories, as our fathers did
the loyalists in 17'76.
We~have. now other instances to record of
the tender dealings of thc Yankeces with their
Union, loval friends.
It lhas'happened that they have passed
through a portion of the Qriaker settlenient of
Wayne, and not having regard for the Quaker
sentiment, or their exemption, because et
'consirenos scruples,' against fighting, for
tercountry, they tucked some of them up,
and literally hung them. until they disgorged
silver dollars-bright pure coin-to the amount
of thousands.-Raleigh Confederate.
A member of the Legislature was heard to
say, that a certain contractor ur.d.er the State
orConfederate Go.vernmnent had bought twice
as much of a certain article as his corntract
contemplated. He was aslAd what he would
do with this 5urplus. "Speculate on it," was~
the answer. Yet that man subscribed -in.oath,
we are told, to the effect that he xwould not we

Old sut; hearty ind ho t, L dare say, and
banged awny at the PFope and the devil with
good effect. But there was nothing high and
-rand about hin. I krent to. see the place
whero the devil is 'said to have helped him
over the walls of Atugsburg; b'ut even there,
not a gleanm of poetry associated itself with
his name. The huge drinking cup, seemed to
swallow up everything, and the couplet, said
to be his, appeared to tell the whole story.
Who loves not wine, women and song,
Remains a fool all his life long.
In short, his burly face and figure, and the
goblets that testify to his powers, made it
absolntely impossible for me to connect any
heroic idea with the man.- [Professor .ulton.
Kissisr,.-The "editress"~ of the Ladies'
Nepository, -talltig about kissing, says
"Kisses, like faces of philosophers, vary. Sotne
are as hot as fire, some as sweet as honey,
some mild as milk, some tasteless as long
drawn soda. Stolen kisces are said- to hale
more nutmeg and cream than other.sorts. As
to propossd kisses, they are not liked at all. A
stolen kiss i, the rpst agreeable. We have
been kissed a few times, and as we are not
very old, we hope to re*ive many more."
At what hour may the lady be found j-n her
SUCCEss rN LIME.-A. man's besthelp is in
himself-his own heart, his own soul, his Own
'resolute purpose. The battle cannot be fought
b- proxy. A man's mind aay be aroused by
ianother-his desire to improve- and .advance
himself be excited by another, but he mqst
Mool. his own stuff, quarry his own nature,

try often, and he cannot fail ultimately to suc

tries, dnd tries with resolution.
ihaUE PPrEcn3.s.-The Paris correspdn-,

in a bran new'uniform, was in company with
seueral ladies at the Muscogee depet. On his
cap, as is usual with the naval gentry, was a
bi'oad brass band. An old Confed., withb no
seat to his .pants, was attracted by naval
man's hat, and having a good cr'bwd of "boys"
to back him. called out to him, the Columbus
Sun says, Hello, mister, can't you play us a
tune on your brass band ?" The "boys"
laughed. Navy was chaed, and turneh red.
iM3EN AND N4'RET-KEEPJNG.-It is quite a
mis ken idea that a woman egnnot~ keep a
secret-nobodf so well. Trust her but with
half, or. try to keep it from her altogether, and
she is sure to beat you; because her pride
prompts her to find out what the man thinks
it right to conceal, anl then her vanity in
duces her+tonell what she -has found out, and
this in order to show her power of dis::ove'ty.
