ship, and it certainly djd, s seem
that his chances. ar more en
couraging than they were a few
weeks ago. At any rate he has
gained strength in the West,
[particularly in Illinois, where hbe
is second choice after Iorrison.
Blackburn, of Kentuct;y, has
gained strength in the South,
and wili present a stronrer front
than many of his opponents an-1
ticipate. It is adtrutted that he
is not as good a parhliamentarian
as any of his com,,etitors, as he
once entertained a tmodio't ro ad
journ the House while it was in
Commnittoo of the Whole; but
there is a strong feoling in favor
of the recog,.itioni of the South
because of the fact that the ser
vices of that section to the De
mocracy in the last campaign
were rendered for the practical
advancement of the Northern
wing of the party. A careful
snrvey of ,he situation, however
develors the fact that .a:yler,
Randall and Blackburn will each
show lcidig strength in the
order lnamed, with the probatbi
lities in favor of Sayler, unless
Randall is able to carry off the
prize on the first ballot in can
cus, wh ich is not anticipated.
It was at Orange Courthouse
during the war. Generals Ear
ly, Ewell, and D. H. Hill sat on
the back seat. The chaplain oi
some regiment was drawing tle
ghastly picture of a silner's
de;ath before the assembled sol
diers. Ho suummoned allfthe
dead soldiers and passed them
in review. '"Snpposo," said heo,
";.U the army of dead could now
file before you in their grave
clothes what a warning each
pale face would speak! and how
would you receive it?" General
Early leaned over to Ewell and
whispered. ''I'll conscript the last
one of them l.'--,nday Delta.
The French rarely shake
hands, and only with fricinds
with whom they are on intimate
terms. In this case they give
the left hand, near the hoart.
Both hands given at once is a
graceful salutation, and presup
poses an- unusual amount of
cordiality; but, if not impromp
tu, it has the effect of affectatton
rather than genuine hartiness.
A Chicago pork-packer, whose
pew rent was raised to.twýnty

"Great Caesar I here's a nice
state of affairs--the Gospel go
