Such officers as he may appoint will draw the necessary supplies from the Commissary and Quatermastrmater's Department, upon requisition approved by the Com mander of the Post. Supplies not fainished by those Departments, will be procured from. funds in the hands of Mr. Conway. All persons formerly held as slaves will be treated in every respect as entitled to the rights of freedmen, and such as desiro their services will be required to pay for them.

Those employed by the Government will be regularly enrolled, subsisted and paid. jnpies of the rolls of those e mployed i t4 the different depart mn'nts of the army, will be furnished to the Superinten" ent of Freedmen, and whln dischtrgcd from that em ployment will be directed to report to the Superintendent.

Of" course they ar'. It was only a f..w months ago .we noticed the adoption by the Parisennes of the absurd fashion of painting poodle dogs to uiatch the cnanging colors of their dresses ; and no'v we, read that the fifth-avenudles of New York are dveing their lap-dogs green, pink, etc. It is clear that "all the fools are not head yet." Since he was brought prominently forward by his reinauguration. Presi dent Lincoln has been well nigh for. gotten by the nation.-N. Y. Leader. Since the above was published to the world the distinguished person age alluded to has been called to mind ngain, with a force of impres sion that is likely to keep his mem ory green in the recollection of the nation as long as it has any history. N. O. Picayune. The Indianapolis and Terre Haute Railroad Company promptly paid for all baggage that was destroyed by the fire that unaccountably broke out on the train Thursday morning and consumed several cars. Among the claims, says the Missouri Demo crat, was that of a bride, en route to the east from Hillaborough, Ill. She claimed 82,300 as the value of a trunk containing a bridal outfit, and the railroad company actually paid her this sam. Orcgod sends a fresh backwoods man to Congress, who had never seen a railroad till he came on this season. He had heard much of the tricks of sharpers and was determined to keep his eyes open. He kept them opened so wide that when the con ductor came and tore of theceoupon of his car ticket he seized that worthy by the throat mnd bad nearly made an end of him before be -could be mrwasaded that no wrouv had been Iorrld Atrocity. On Saturday the 22d inst., as Mr. A. L. D. Moore wascoming to to*an, about two miles east of this place, on the Fayetteville road, he saw two hareas standing in a thicket near the road, one bhain; on a lady's saddle, and the other with no saddle on; the appearance of the horses excited his curiosity, which was still more exci ted on going a little further by dis covering a portion of a lady's dress lying in the way. Upon looking around he saw some objects uponthe ground about 30 yards from the mad, and he also heard the cry of a fiale voice calling for help. He immedi ately drew his six shooter, which he fortunately happened to ihave with him, and rushed to the spot. There he found a German girl in the arms of a hbgo giant negro, who was en deavoring to accomplish a purpose too horrid to mention. Mr. Moore captured the negro and brought him to town; wheretipon the citizens collected together atsthe Court House Col. B. Shropshire, was called to the Chair, and a jury of twelve citizens were selected. The negro was placed upon trial and a thorough investiga tion gone into. The young lady stated that she was overtakeu by the negro who ad dressed some vulgar remark to her, she immediately tried to ride away from him, but he seized her, threw her from her horse and carried her in his arms to the spot where they were discovered by Mr. Moore-that she struggled with the negro, who cotn stantly threatened to kill her, until she became completely exhausted. The negro was told that the evi dence against himr was positive, and the presumption was that he had but a short time to live, and if he hadl anything to say an opportunity was then offered him. He stated that he was guilty of the crime and begged to be forgiveun; .aid his name was yorick, that he belonged to Dr. Tanner of Hog-Eye, and was a runaway. The jury returned a verdict of Guilty, and he was immediately ta ken out and hung. In narrating the :bove we cannot close, without awarding to Mr. Moore that praise which is due him for his timely rescue of a young l-edy, from such a fearful peril, and for his judgment and tact in securing the guilty wretch so that justice might he meted out to him.-San Antonio Herald. A doctor n;t long since gave the' following prescription for a sick lady: "A new bonnet, a cashmere shawl, and a pair of gaiter boots." The lady recovered immediately. Speeck 'of General Anderson at the restoration of the Fort Sampter Flag.-I am here, my friends and tallow-citizens, and brother soldiers, to perform an act of duty which is dlear to my heart, and vwhich all of you present appreciate and feel. Did I listen to the promptings of my own heart, I would not attempt to speak; but I have been desired by the Secretary of War, to make a few remarks. ,By the c nsiderate ap pointment of the honored Secretary of War to fulfil the cherished wish of my heart through four long years of bloody war-to restore to its pro per place this very flag which float ed here during peace, before the first act of this cruel rebellion-I thank God I have lived to see this day, (applause, to be here to perform this perhaps the last' act of duty to my country in this life. My heart is filled with gratitude to Almighty God for the signal blessings which he has given us--blessings beyond number. May all the world pro claim glory to god'in the highest, on earth peace and good will toward men. Mr. iseward's Speech. The late Secrctary of Statg, Mr. Seward, (,u beint citied ,att at ttu: glorification meyt;ng its W'ashnt~ton, after t1he fall of itichmond. rd.iv-red the following speech, and i'. conflid ered by the Federal press *('lh: umost pertinent and suggestive he ever oade.' It was as follows: I thank my follow 4:itizeus for the honor they do me by calling to cof gratulate me on the fall of Rich mnond. I sin now about. writing may for eign dispatches. What shall I tell the Emperor of China? I shall thank him in your ua.w, for never having pezusitted a piratical flag to enter thlt harbors of the Enmpire. What shall I say to the Sultan of Turkey? I shall thank him for al ways having surrendered rebel In surgents wtu hbad taken refuge. in his kingdom. What shall I say to tIhe n~ixperor of the French? (A voicet-ITo get out of Mexico.) I shall say to the Emperor of the French, that he can go to-morrow to Richmond and get his tobacco, so long held under blockade there, provided the rebels have not used it up. To Lord John Russell I will say that British merchants will find the cotton exported from our ports, under treaty with the United States, cheaper than cotton obtained by run ning the blookade. As for Earl Russell himself I need not tell him thtlf this is a war for freedom and national independence, and the rights of human nature, and tot a war for empire; and if Great Britain should only be just to the United States, Canada will remnain undisturbed by us so loqg as she pre f".rs the authority of the Queen to voluntary incorporation into the United States. What shall I tell the King of Prussia? I will tell the King of Prussia that the Germans have been faithful to. the Standard of the Union, and his excellent minister, Baron Gerolt, has been constant in his frendship to the United States, during his long residence in this country. To the Emperor of Austria I shall say that he has proved himself a very wise man, for he told us in the hbginning that he had no sympathy with rebellion anywhere. I do not doubt, fellow-citizens, but that at least you accede to the the theory by which I have govern ed myself during the war, namely, that the rebellion will end in ninety dav.y. I have thought this the true theory, because I never knew a phy sician able to restore his patient to health unless he thought he could work a cure under the most unfavor able circumstances in ninety days Finally, if the American people approve, I will say that our motto in peace shall be what our text has been while in war. Every nation is entitled to regulate itaown domes tic affairs in its own way, and all are bound to conduct themselves so as to promote peace on earth and good will to mankind. The Richmoud Inquirer, before the fall of that city, said, Sher idan's men captured three travellets between the Potomac and Richmond, who had in all, about 10,000 in gold; several thousand in silver, 850,000 worth of diamonds, and about the same value of Confederate money. A rich haul, that. The Press (Philadelphia) is good for the following: A good thing is attributed to Hugh MECulloch, the new Secretary of the Treasury. A frightened specu lator was a~king him to arrest the downward tendency of gold. "Well, my good friend," was the Secretary's reply, "if you can get Grant, Sher man and Sheridan to let the rebels whip them, you will be gratified; but I am afraid they wont oblige you." A Qsebec (Canada,) paper a : It is stated that the engineer bli cera at Quebec have privately corn mnii caited with several prominent comtractor., asking the tenders for the construction of extensive fortit. c:ations hcrý , and it is understoo Lhat tunders will also be asked for imme diately, for the construction of an in trenched camp and magazine opposite Montreal, and of similar works of de. fence at other points. The Montreal verning Telegraph says that 'those works, which are to be pushed for ward wit'hout delay and with the greatest possible vigor, will be the: means of affording employment to over thirty thohsand men, and cause the expenditure in the country of several millions ating. In a cotmmunication recently made to the British Meteo oslgical Society, Mr.. Glashier statedias a result of an elaborate inuquiry, that our climate during the last hundred years has al tered-that, in fact, the temperature of the year gis twvo degress warmer than it was then; the temperature of the month of January has increas ed still more, and the winter months are all mttch warmer. This is the first time we have been able to speak with any confidence of this increase of temperature-an increase dwelt on for years past by very aged peo ple. A Mr. Bunce has published the folh wing method for preserving meat: In an earthen pot, provided with a good lid, pour an ounce of concen trated acetic acid; place over it so that it may not touch,, a grate of osier or wood, and on this lay the meat to ,be preserved, and then cover with the lid. The acid, evaporating slowly, envelops tl~ meat, and at the end of twelve days or a fortnight it is both tender and sweet, with anex cellent flavor. A soldier arrived from Savannah. who was through with Sherman, tells of the trip as reported in the Dayton Journal: 'he boys'learned how to' rob beehives without the penalty of stinging. The plan was to rapidly approach the hive, take it up sud denly, and hoisting it upon the shoulder with the open end behind, run like thuinder. The bees hustle out and fly back to the place where the hive stood. The honey belongs to the boys who win it. Dr. Livingstone proposes to make another expedition to Africa. A private frieurl has contributed £1000 to the cause, the Royal Geogra phical Society £b00, and the For eign Office f£500. Dr. Livingstone also receives a yearly salary of £500 as Consul to the Eastern races in Africa. Col. D. H. Strother, of Virginia, better known as the " Porte Crayon" of Harper's Magazine, is being urged by border State influences for a for eign appointment. He has served in some .of the severest campaigns of the war, and lost considerably by his attachment to the Union cause, the rebels haying desolated his home and estate near Martinsburg. On the 19th ult. a gentleman in North Wheeling, Western Virginia, caught a floating shoe shop in the river and succeeded in running it ashore. The shop was a complete little frame building, and contained several pails of boots and abundance of leather, lasts, pegs, and every thing generally used by, the follow. ers of St. Chrispinns. Walking down Royal street a few days ago, I met a friend and,in quired of his whereabouts, knowing he was not in the army. "Well," said he, "I1'e quit active service am now 'retailed' from the army to drive an ordinary wagon."
