A NEW VERSION.
Sheridan couldn't stay in Troy to
participate in the funeral obsequies of
Geireial Thomas, because he had to go
to Philadelphia to help eat a public
dinner on Saturday. Little Phil was
bound to have his little fill, regardless
of the looks of the thing. We propose
that future editions of "Sheridan's
Ride" be amended to read a follows:
Up from lb Booth at break of day.
To whers tbe corpse of Thomas lay,
The electric wire with a quiver bore,
Like a Flashing Puck, to the Troy House
The news of a "feed" with wine galore
Tbe dinner, in fart, of a cavalry corps
And PhiL five hundred miles 'away.
And it told little Thil. how his fill he'd get.
Stirring his apetite a lit, yu bet;
And louder yet into Troy it rolled,
While all the points of tbe feed it told,
Striking the listener's stomach cold
As h thought of the steaks in that gastric
And Phil, five hundred miles away.
But there is a road from Illium town,
Two first-class railways leading down;
And there, in the gloom of Thnrsday night.
An iron hojse with bright head light.
Was seen to pass like a bird afn'ght;
As if he knew Phil. Sheridan's freed,
He rolled away with lightning speed;
Hills rose and fell but his heart was gay.
With Phil, three hundred miles away
And still from the stack as he thundered
Rolled the smoke like the gas from Train's
Or the trail of a dress sweeping faster and
Foreboding to husbands financial disaster;
While the valves of the "steed" and the
heart of the master
Were beating like prisoners assaulting their
Impatient to be where the dinner bell calls;
Every nerve of the engine was strained to
With PhiL but one hundred miles away.
The first that met his eyes were the sands
That cover up New Jersey lands;
And th special train went thundering
As the dinner hoar struck on the clock of
With smoke and with dust the engine was
By the screech of his whistle be seemed to
"I've brought you Sheridan all the way
From Illium down to eat to-day"
Xow let them be busted and placed in airs,
la nn-hes at the head of hallway stairs
For that, you know is the eummitot fame ;
And there, Death the glorious General's
Be it printed in letters two feet square,
"Here's tbe Iron Horse that saved the day
By bringing General Sheridan there
From Troy, five hundred miles away."
Local and Political.
BY A CONTRIBUTOR.
The Widow Lincoln to be a
In looking over tho proceedings
of Congress, we noticed the intro
duction ard passage through tho
House of a bill directing the Sec
retary of the Interior to place the
name of Mrs. Lincoln ou the Pen
sion Roll, and pay her a pension of
53,000 per annum. This bill will,
no donbt. pass the Senate and be
come a law. Under th:s act, Mrs.
Lincoln will receive from the Uni
ted States' Treasury as long as she
shall lire, the large 6um cf $3,000,
We would ask what plaupable
excuse can there be invented for
this proposed lavishing benevolence
of the people's money upon what
may be culled a vagrant in a for
eign land ? who having, by her ex
traordinary condut-t, exposed ber
clf to tbe just cen
sure and criticism of all tbe peoplo
at home, left tbe country under the
ridicule and denunciation ot nearly
the whole Preps of the land; and,
now travelling in Europe, squan
dering, in show and glitter, among
the aristocracy of the Old World, a
large and magnificent dowry, left
by her lamented husband, and esti
mated, in cash, at 58,765, besides
some unproductive real estate.
With impudence, she now comes
before Congress, where all schemes
of plunder have numerous advo
catcs, and, through the interven
tion oi the lobby and in teres tod
persons, asks to be pensioned upon
the Treasury for lite at the rate of
$3,000 per ann ooi.
This large sum ofmony is to be
bestowed upon the widow of Presi
dent! Lincoln, for the reason that
he, at tho time, being Commander
in Chief of the Army and Navy of
the United States, was killed, by
the hand of an assassin; yes, Mr.
Lincoln was assassinated, not.how-
eTer, inhe line of duty, but while
attending npon a theater in Wash
mgton City. It is well to remem
ber, in this connection, that the rule
insisted upon at tbe Pension Office,
in the case of a common soldier
when he applies for a pension by
reason of wounds, disabilities, in
juries, is that the soldier must
bate been in the Military service,
and in the line of duty at the lime
the disability occurred. If a com
mon soldier bad been killed in a
theater, as was Lincoln, or in any
other place, when off of duty,neitb
er his widow, or heirs, would be
entitled to a single cent.
We insist npon it, that justice
should be meted out to all alike.
There are hundreds' of common
soldiers and many soldiers' widows
in tbe land, jnuth more deserving,
and wore toeedy of a pension, than
s Widow Lincoln, aad who would
be content with the small pittance
of $96- per annum, but wJiowiU for
ever be precluded by the Roc
Tape policy adopted ii tho Iuterior
Department, at Washington, from
wbat is justly due them.
This yearly pension of f 3,000
proposed to be bestowed npon this
vagrant woman because her sainted
husband wad unfortunately killed
in a tbeaier, would more tlan pay
thirty soldiers' widows, whose hus
bands died from disease or were
killed in the service of their country.
Senator Sumner and the Negro.
Tbe other day a Boston negro
stole an article of silver-ware from
Senator Charles Sumner. Charles
is an intense lover of tho African
race. How perseveringly he has
advocated the cause of the negro,
let hia life in and out of Congress
The darkey entered Mr. Sum
ner's mansion and said :
Is 1 a man and brodder?"
"Sartin, surel" replied Charles'
"Then," reasoned tbe incorrigi
ble rascal, "I'll borrey something,"
and he did "borrey" a silver tea
tray, the property of Mr. Sumner,
presented to him on a certain oc
casion by the dark sons of Freedom.
But the act of Freedom perpetrated
by this representative of the 15th
Amendment, sent tho "man and
brodder" to jail. Will Charles ap
pear in court against tbe darkey?
It is thought he will not.
For the good of tho country, and
for the safety of society, we would
most respectfully call the attention
cf our community, and particular
ly our female readers, to the very
sensible and ktock-em-down rea
sons, why "a Matron" cannot sup
port, endorse and countenance the
'new woman notions" of the press
Our "Matron" is, no doubt, a
good Christian woman, and believes
in the injunction of the Almighty,
"Multiply and replenish the earth."
The last sentence of tho para
graph is a poser. Let the women's
rights men of the country put that
in their pipes and smoke it:
"ljubt don't believe in these
new women notiocs. I have rais
ed six boys four of them vote now,
and the others will soon be old
enough. Then 1 will have six
votes. Now these good for-noth-ing
women who havo fooled their
time away, and never raised a sin
gle boy, come around and want ev
ery woman to vote for bersplf. J
don't believe in such nonsi-nse. I
have raised my six boys, and I am
going to have everyone of them vote
for me. Those women who go lec
turing around tbe country instead
of raising boys, have no business
to vote anyway. And when they
say they are just as good as I am,
and have a right to vote them
selves, if they have no boys to do
so for them, it is not true. If they
are an smart as I am why did they
not raise some boys to vots for
them ? I tell yon, I do not intend
to be cheated out of my six votes
by any Eucb good-for nothing
f'o'ks. I uess that the world
would come to a pretty pass in a
mighty short time, it the women
all took to going around lecturing
on women's rights instead of rais
ing boys. A MATKON."

A Washington dispatch says that

It appears that the most flagrant

cries to the officials. The salaries
of these officers aro fixed by law,
and paid by the General Govern
ment. But they have been in the
habit of having additional compen
aation voted tnem by the Tentorial
Legislatures, and the Legislatures
have been in the habit of also voting
themselves additional compensation
all of which comes out of the
Treasury of the United States.
These Legislatures, not satisfied
with this extravagance, are contin
ually creating new unices in the
Territories, and taxing the people
to support them. In Idaho the
Legislatuae has passed a law tax
ing Chinamen $5 a month who en

amount collected from this tax last

THE WIVES OF GREAT MEN.
The number of eminent descendants
from illustrious men must lot be
looked upon as the results of their ma -
riage wi'h mediocre women; tor me
average abili y of the wives of such
men is above mediocrity, countrary to
to th commonly expressed opinion
that clt-ver men marry silly women
It is not easy to prove my point with
out a considerable ma-s of quotations
to 6how the estimation in which the
wives of a large body of illustrious men
were held by their intimate friends;
but the following arguments are not
First, the lady whom a man marries
is very commonly one whom he has
often met in the society f l.h own
friends, and therefore not likely to be
a silly woman, fehe is also ual y rela
ted t tome of them, and thrreft re has
a probability of being hereditarily
Secondly, as a matt-r of fact, a large
number of eminent men marry env-
nent women. Fh'dio II of Vacedon
and Olympian; Caesar's liaison wi h
Cleopatra; Marlborough oud h:s most
able wife; Ilelvt tius married a charm
ing lady, whose hand was a'BO sought
by both Frank'in and Turgot; Agu t
Wi'helm von Schlegel was h art and
soul devoted to Madame Be Stael;
Necker 8 wife w-s blue sto king of
the purest hue; Robert Stephens, the
learned printer, had Petronella for his
wife; the Lord Kfeper Sir Nicholas Ba
con, and the great Lo d Burleigh, mar
ried two of the highly accomplish
daughters cf b'ir Anthony Cooke. A
these names are those of decidedly
eminent women. They establi hed
the existence of a tendency of "line to
like" among intellectual iten and
women. On the other band, there is
no evidence of a strongly marked
antagonistic taste of c ever men lik
ing rsa'ly half-witted women. A man
may be conscions of ser ous defects in
his character, and celect a wife to sup
plement what he wants, as a thy man
may be attracted by a woman who has
no o her merits than those of a talker
and manager. Also, a young awkward
philosopher may accredit the first girl
who cares to show an interest in him
with greater intelligence than she
po'sesses. But these are exceptional
instances; the great fact remairs that
able men take pleasure in the society
of intelligent women, and, if they can
find such as would 'n other respects
be suitable, they will marry them in
preference to mediocrities.
ORIGIN OF WOMEN CLERKSHIPS.
S II I PS.
General Spinner's account of the
beginning of the present system of
female employment in the Treasury
is that female employes were smug
gled in. When treasury notes were
first i.sued, four of them were engrav
ed on a theet, and it was necessary
that they should be separated with
shears before sending them out of the
Treasury. "I went to Mr. Cha e,"
said General Spinner, "and said to him
that a woman can use scissors better
than a man, and she will do it chap
er.k 1 want to employ women to cut
these notes." Mr. Chase assented
heartily, the more so that the atten
tiorfof every one in Washington was
then very fpecially called to the num -ber
of women once in comfortable and
in many cases affluent circumstances,
who were suffer ng absolute want- In
the ci y, many well-known r sidents
were reduced to privation almost im
mediately after the war broke out, and
from desolated Virginia, families came
by hundreds, demrnd'ng food for
themselves and their little ones.
Women who had lived handsomely
in the neighborhood of Washington,
whos homes were destroyed, and who
actually had not 'he means to procure
a shelter. To the e, whenever possi
ble, places were given as "clippers,''
and so the first footho'd was gained
Those who needed work received it,
and polit'c! influence was never
brought into the question But this
was do light employment, ea-y as "cut
ting paper" may sound. Incessant
use ot t! e shears made wart aud b'is
ters on many delicate hards; the num
ber of hours' service required was
regulated ry ihe prssure of business,
nd often these ladies were kept until
dark at their work, and obliged some
times to return to the department tf
ter night. These appointments were
made informally, and had no official
existence. Females were nrt mention
ed in appropriation bills until a year
or so Inter. Those first employed du
ring 1862, were paid out of the fund
for temporary or additional rlerks, at
the i ate of 5600 per annum. New
Htdbophobia has lately engaged
the attention of the French Acade
my of Science, but very little of
value seems to have been gained
from the discussion It was assert
ed without contradiction, we be
lieve, that, when once the malady
appears, it is utterly incurable.
The fact that in eome cases persons
bitten by unquestionably rabid an
imals that have escaped, was cred
ited rather to a temporajy exhaus
tion of the poisonous virus atili
moment of the bite than to any
merit m medicine applied- The
actual cautery, thoroughly search
ing the extreme debths reached by
the fangs, was held to be tbe only
preventive. A number of the bc
entitle people, following the tind of
our infatuated Mr. Bvrgh, charged
that tho canine madness resulted
from the barbarious habit of mux
ziing, and special reference was
made to the town of Dijon, when
dogs were In fnll enjoyment of lib
erty, and showed their gratitude by
never going mad; but there wan a
palpable weakness in the reasoning
of the savans, in that they failed to
show an authenticated instance ot
hydrophobia produced by the bite
of an effectually muzzled nog. A
the traditional "dog day" are ap
proaching, it may not; be amisj to
suggest here, however, tnat aogp
may be safely left unmuzzled every
where as well as in Dijon, if the
precantiin is taken to tether thorn
with throe or four feet of rope to a
forty-pound bowlder sunk in three
or four fathoms of water. It has
been tried with perfect success.

with the miserable appearance of

eL Ten years later I received one
morning a letter containing a chock
for 10,000 francs, with the following
words: 'Sir One day you gave a

Schefftr. I have made good use of

Within the last century, or since
the cstablishmdnt of the American
government, France has been twice
a mona'cbv, twice a republic, and
twice an empire. Twice has it past
ed through theso three forms ot
government in the same orderto
wit: Monarchy, republic, empire;
and again monarchy, republic, em
pire. The first and necond republics
were both founded on the rum of a
monarchy, and the first and secoi d
empires were both founded on the
ruins of a r public. The kings were
always Bourbons, and both of the
emperors nave been Bona par Us.
In the regular order of things, we
may expect the present empire to
bo followed by a Bourbon monarchy.
which should last till it is supersed
ed by a republic, on tbe ru:ns of
which some Bonaparte should es
tablished the third empire.

and election are sustained. j
