so many obstacles that sober minded

The extracts which we gave a few

by the Gazette do Franco, and fur
nish that journal tho occasion to re
gret that the imperial Govern ineBt
has not taken, 'in regard to America,
"a determined atitade."
"We have been too much' in favor
of European intervention to entirely
disapprove tne regret expressed by
the Gazette; but that jonrni! forgets
that for three years past the Imperial
governmenc was aone its dobi to m-H
duce' Europe' to -take' steps which

ought to know as well as we that our
interest is not to isolate ourselves.
England and Russia havo resisted ,
and these principal adversaries of a
European intervention might easily
become tho1 rudoubtablo adversaries

We find the following mild, kind
and genial paragraph in the Colum

ot tho suf render ot Charleston it
says:'"' .. ,

An Incredible Story.
heoald do to awaken the,m.
At present the'ro is a soldier at the
Chestnut Hill Military Ilotpitid.
Philadelphia, who has not Blept for a
'single moment for fourteen years an
six months. This may'eeem incred
ible, but, neverthi'loes, it is true, and
can bo veriued by numbers of per
sons. The indiv:dual is an 'intelli
gent man, naturally, : and has the
benefit of a moderate education. His
name Is O. D. Sandeis, orderly g, r
geant of Co. G, Thirteenth Va. Vols
He enterod the service of the United
States on December 23, 164. He i
in the forty fifth year of his age. Ills
health has been generally txcellt-tit
during bis life.
In 1849 ho was attacked by cliolern,
and since that time with lung fever
on 'Two occasidns. In the'8,-,nmor of
1850 sleep forsook him, and since
that time he has never felt tho lea.-1
drowsy. He has always led a tern
perate life. His wife and children
reside in Putnam county, Wtst Vir
ginia. Since he entered the .Union
army he has been on seven raids and
four charges, during which time he
intorms us that he never lelt tired or
elcopy. He was in the four charges
boyoud Harper's Ferry, Va., on the
17ib, 18th, 19th and 20th of last
August, and yet he did not feel the
nax aieepy. . v ny it is that he , can
not or does not sleep, is as much a
mystery to him as it is to many .'sor-
entiti'j gontlemen, who, .having had
tbeirattentioned called to him, have
been aBtounded in their attempt to
investigate the cause. . ..
Upon one occasion, at 1.1a request,
number of curiously inclined gen
tlemen watched him forty two ,dave
and nights consecutively, in order,
impossible, to arrive at the cause of
the wonderlul phenomenon. These
gentlemen took turns with each other
in the progrerc oi waicuuig ho mat u
he should chaucq to sleep it would be
observed, i Some of; tho watchers
became drowsy, and it was as much

Slavery.
Hon.: JaH3 Baooxs,. cf . New
York, tho other day, made tho follow-
ing very lorcioie remarua in v,ou
"Ihe oontu ms anonsning siavery
when the abolition was commenced
upon it, thirty years ago, and in due
time, by the operation oi natural
causes, slavery would have passed
away from tho face of ihe earth, with
out any of thia civil war. Civil war
has Interposed and created a catas
trophe aud. perhaps hastened tne
abolition of slavery, but, amid . how
much ol bloodshed and carnago, and
with what irreparable damage to all
tho free institutions of the North.
Sir, wo have abolisbel the slavery of
the South, but iu doing bo we have
become the slaves, tho thralls, vhe
hondsmon of tho capitalist of the
North, We are mortgaged to. them
for lifet our and the coming genera
tion, our shiidren and our children's
children- Our farurs aie mortgaged,
our lador is mortgaged. We are
"held to service" for life, to . earn
enough to pay, the interest on the
principal of the great debt. . The cap
italista own ui as much as capitalists
in England own the . peoploVof Eng
land. : For the emancipation of : the
neeroea of the South we have enslav
ed the white people of the North to

dastiny, becaud we have attempted
to hasten the order .01 time, wnicu

Slavery. Relics of the Cross.
The historicaf-Tacta ksown on tbo
snhjw:t oUiio nails oftae Cross, arj
thesf; , w,h.n the Empress HeltiKt
made fxcavutions iff Jerusalem, in
the beginning of.thp. fourth century,"
jto uncover the tomb" and place ofe.T
.icutinn, bIio was informed, by certain
Christian mhabitauts of Jerusalem,
that the crosjca otOhf'Ut and tho Two
thievew'e'feyaat Tntol' plt or tarlno
among the rocks,' beingrin 'Jewish
view, polluted oljicts. She dug out
this ruvine, and found various pieces
of timber. "Whether they were tho
crosses io qnestii n, or whethfr they
were the timbers ot old buildings, it
!s impossible to affirm. The pails or
spikes she found a'sn. One ot theBo
nails she tent to C'onstautine, and it
was by hrm made into a bit or ' nn
ornament for pait of his horses bridle,
poesibly in intentional fulfillment ot a
well known' prophecy. Tho ether
nails wero also preserved. Tbe're ia
no leasin to doubt that many frag
ments of the tvood thris discovered by
Helena, Vomain in Europoan churches.
The largo fragmeut in the basilica of
Santa Croce, in Remo. is undoubtedly
a fragmeut of the wood discovered by
Helena, whatever that wood wae.
The nails disappeared from history,
until some huhdrad1 j oars alter llelo
na, the iron crown of Jonza was soi I
to .be made. of. one, of .,. them,,.., And
possibly it was. Probably it was.
For wheie a long .tradition states u
fact, and there is no evidenco to tho
contrary; the probabilities are in favor
of the tradition having foundation in
Christian Inquirer.
