THE
TUB SKEIN.
Slip, ye, slip your skein, my Kitty,
O'er my Lands, and wind, and wind,
All the while, with little pity,
Tangling, taDgliug, heart and mind:
Kitty I eyes upon the wool I
Not on me, my beautiful 1
Now yon droep your eyes completely,
Winding, winding, dreamilie;
Wherefore, wherefore smile so sweetly
On a thing that cannot see f
If you must smile, smile tbia way I
I will Lear it as I may 1
Ah 1 the rosehud fingers flitting
Swift ahout the colored ball !
How my heart beats time, while sitting ;
Still, I try to bear it all :
Kitty, do you kuow or oare
'Tis my heart you're winding there ?
Kilty, I am In a vision 1
All the world to mint doth die;
Only, in an air Klysian,
Little fairy fingers fly;
Surely, if they flit too near,
I shall catuh and kiss them, dear 1
Tangled ! pout not, frown not, Kitty !
Though I gladly bear the pain;
For your auger is so pret y,
It may make me Kin again.
There I 'tis well ! Now, wind and wind,
Taugliug further heart and mind i
Now, 'tis donel the last thread lingorB
Sadly from me, slow to part;
Can'st thou see that in my fingers
1 am holding up my heart f
Wind aud wind ! I do not care !
Smile or frown ! and I will bear I
Ah I so fast and qniok you wind it,
1 no more can keep it mine;
Do you wonder that you find it
Throbbing now, close, close to thine ?
Tangled, tangled are the twain ;
Kiss, kiss, kiss them free again 1
Th Family of the, ex-King of Franc.
The Orleans iamily consists to-day of twenty
five living members. The Duke of Orleans, who
was killed iu 1842 by a fall from his earring?,
was the eldest son, and bad he lived the destiny
Of Fiance would no doubt have been changed,
for be was not only popular, but much beloved
by the people,

The Prince do Joinville, born in 1818, Is the
' best known ot the Orleans family in this coun
try. The celebrated De Joinville Ball, in New

Duke de Montpensier, has a daughter, the
Princess Marie Amelia, born in 1805.
Robert d'Grleans.iDuke ot Cnarlres, born in
raris in 1840, married his cousin, the daughter

dren: 1. The Princess Marie, born in 1805.
2. Tbo Prince Robert, born in 18U0.
3. The Prince Henry, born in 18G7.
With the exception of the Duke de Montpen
sier, who never leaves his estate iu Spain, all the
family rewide in England, where they are the re
cipients of marked attention from the aris
tocracy of that country.
Masonry. "Was Uncle Paul a Mason?"
Ike asked of Mrs. Partington, as he stood
looking at the rigid profile of the ancient cor
poral of the "Bloody Eleventh" that hung on
the wall.
"No, he was a veteran sergeant, naturally,
though he took in gardening afterwards, and
raised the most wonderful squashes, that
always took the primer at the Horticultural
.Fair."
"I mean, was he a Free Mason ?" continued
Ike.
"0, dear, no," replied she, "and I'm glad
of It, for they are a great deal too free in
throwing their plasterin' round, which is very
jnoi tarling, and takes the color out of things
Bo; and when they whitewashed the kitchen
didn't they make free with the balmy bud
rum which they mistook for a cordial ? and I
wish to gracious it had been a 'metio to have
taught 'em a lesson to be a little less free next
time."
"But, Free Masons," said Ike, petulantly,
"ain't masons; I mean the fellow that built
' the temple."
"01" she exclaimed, "them? well, dear, I
have heered of a good many things they did,
and then again I have heered of a good many
thii)gs they didn't, and so between 'em both I
don't believe neither. It is a great mystery 1"
ehe answered, "and if they did kill Morgan,
they ought to have done it if they agreed to,
tbo' 'twas a bad thing for him. But I never
Lelieved the story told of his sculling up Ni
agry Falls in; a potash kettle with a crowbar,
which is preposterous, aud as for the gridiron
thereby hangs a tale, and the Lord knows
what they do in their seoret cemeteries, when
they get on one auother's clothes by mistake,
and cut up all sorts of capers, to say nothing
f tlw) ridiculous aprons which make 'em look
80 queer."
The interest of Ike had ceased, and he had
turned Lis attention to anointing the cat with
an application of soft soap.
The continued unpopularity of C.orgey In
Hungary was strikingly demonstrated recently,
l, taid a visit to the Chamber at Pesth.
Very soon after he was recognized in the gal
lery a low murmuring was heard among the
Radicals, which eradually became louder and
more menacing, and at last broke out in cries
cf "What does Oorgey want here f What
impudeuce I Out with the traitor ! Does he
want to betrav us. as he did his companions in
arms in IMS ?" The President then rose, and
tailed the House to order, but in vain. The
cries and threats grew louder and louder, and
only ceased when (iorirey ro.so from his seat
and left the room. It is sail that he lult Pesth

Fi om the Tuleilo (Ohio) Blade, Dec. 19.
Washington Citt, Dee. 13. KditoT Blade: I
suppose it will be conceded that a Representa
tive is entitled, when availed, to a bearing aud
to fair dealine, at least from his own party press,
Kvery fair man will concede ttat a Representa
tive who devotes his time, tnlcnts, and means to
arraiyulDK ami bnupinir to justice an admitted
political criminal, oui;ht not to be assailed by
his own party witnout the best of reasons, even
though he committed blunders, and, in his zeal,
did acts which tho more prudent might say
were indiscreet, and give utterance, In moments
of cxcitcmeiit, to suspicions which no evidence
could be found to fully Kustaiu.
In no public spoch which I ever made did I
ever cbarpe Air. Johnson with complicity in the
B9a slua'.iou plot. In ray public speeches I
bsve been lar more reticent on this question
than any ol the gentlemen who have been
speakluir with me, and when I have alluded to
it in public addresses, I have only slated what
were my impresious and suspicions. On the
7th of Match, when Introducing, without the
alteration of a word, the same charges aud
specifications above quoted, I referred to the
assassination in the speech which I then made
under more than ordinary excitement. Of
course no one will claim that in what I then
said Mr. Johnson is charged with complicity in
the assassination.
As 1 made no such charcro, I did not, when
presenting evidence to the Committee, direct
the attention ol witnesses particularly to that
matter.
I have privately expressed the opinion that
Harrison and lay lor were foully taken off. I
never Intimated, however, that either of the
Vice-Presidents, John Tiler or Fillmore, were
iu the conspiracy, nor that Breckinridge co
operated with thoo who attempted tho life
ol Buchanan by poison.
That Irom the hrst I suspected Mr. Johnson of
a guilty knowledge of the H3a8bination is true,
and 1 have repeatedly said in priva'.e converia
tioo, that events Lad transpired since his in
auguration tending to conhrui mc in that suspi
cion. (Jcneral Loan, of Missouri, is the only Repre
sentative, 1 bjlieve, who lias ever ollicially
chsrged Mr. Johnson on the floor ot the House
with complicity in tho great ciiine of assassina
tion. The testimony on the a' sassination trials dis
closed the lact 1hut, on the night of Mr. Lin
colas murder, there were a huuarcd armed men
In this city to co-operate with the conspirators
in the horrible work ot assassination. That it
was a widespread conspiracy is now well
known. Evidence which cannot be disputed has
established that fact. No effort worthy of the
name has ever been made by the Government to
arrest and bring to )ustice any one ot the con
spirators now at large. Surratt was captured
and broueht home despite the indifference of
the hdmiuiatration, as was shown in tne report
ot the Judiciary Committee submitted by Mr.
Woodbridire, and it is believed by many that he
will never be convicted, because the Government
refuses or neglects to conduct the case as they
would an ordinary suit involving a tew thou
sand dollars. It is believed by many that the
conviction of Surratt would lead to disclosures
which would lilt the veil which to day con
ceal and shields many of the conspirators.
Hence the extraordinary efforts to prevent his
conviction.
1 do tot disguise the fact that I am, and hare
been, anxious to obtain any evidence which
would tend to unravel the assassination plot,
To obtain evidence on this subject, I have tra
velled many miles and spent much time, and
vibitud more than one prison. If a criminal,
whose execution was fixed for to-morrow, should
send for me to-nifih', assuring me that be could
and would put mo in possession of written evi
dence, and give me the names of persons whose
testimony would aid in getting at the truth
about the assassination of Mr. Lincoln, I would
most certainly co at once, and I should go If Mr.
Johnson hod ceased ' to be President. When I
visited the prison in this city, it was with
tbo expectation and nsaurauce of re
ceiving Utters written by Davis, Johnson,
and others, who, it was alleged, had
a guilty knowledge of the assassination,
and thsl these letters were in the handwriting
of the parties named, and would establish that
fact. Under the tame circumstances 1 would
visit any prion to-morrow. And here, and now,
permit me to say that the reckless assertion is
without foundation which charges me, or auy
one for me, or lor any member of the committee,
with dragging into the light the statement of
any perjurer, or that 1, or any one for me, ever
soi.put to parade before the public, or before the
committee, auy false statement as true. No one
having any regard for the truth, who knows any
thing ot the iacts in this impeachment caso, or
has read my statement beicie the committee,
would ever Lave made such an utterly unfounded
rharpe a the above.
1 have gone through a lontr, laborious, and
thanklens fiht, 1 entered into it with great
reluctance, nud only because I believed it to ba
an imperative dutv. I have been assailed aud
mulioned without scruple by the minions of
Executive power, aud have either been misun
derstood or purposely misrepresented by thoe
whom I regurded as friends, while profecd
Republican Journals exult over every sensation
riAiai'innh anv ieunv-a-liner may set afloat, and
many ol these Journals seem to regret that they
cannot tasten upon me some ousuouorauie act.
Hint 1 have been disappointed is true in not
eettine a number of letters which I supposed
would ULdouuieniT De oDiuinea, auu wuiuu,
beiuu in the handwriting of the parties, pro
mised to reveal much ol the Hssasination plot.
I never made any such statement publicly, how
ever, lor leur ol failure. Conscious that I have
dote no act, In pursuine this unplea-ant investi
gation, in oLsisteut with my duty as a Repre
sentative, 1 am content to bide my time. I have
been olten and unjustly aseaueo, out time nas
vindicated me.
The incls adduced bvthe Judiciary Committee
will make su ineHareablereconi, aud the verdict of
history will be that Andrew Johnson was guilty
oi "high crimes and misdemeauors," aschri;cd,
and, in addition, that he became the ally of the
authois of the Rebellion, and attempted to
secure their rrstoiafion to power. That he
oupht to have been impeached on the charges
made, a mnionty of the ablest lawyers on the
Juoiciarv Committee, who csrefuily and pa
tiently investigated the case lor nearly a year,
fulh bel eve, and so reported.
Almost evi ry Republican newspapor was out
spoken for impeuchment when Mr. Stantoa wa3
removed, aiid a number of Repreentatives who
voted acaiust itv.ere also known to have pri
vately and publicly on the slump expressed
themselves in its favor.
The elections and the financial condition of
the country pioduced a reaoaon wbic'a euJed
in a disgraceful panic. I ran only liken it to
the bcusflcbs psuic at bull Run, when both,
ai lilies were on the retreat at tho same time.
Reverses at elections and financial embarrass
ments may do much, as we have seen, to demo
ralize a party, but they cannot change facts nor
alter the lorce of legal evidence. I am com
wiled cn n.v oath to vote on the facts and evi
dence as presented, and not against the lads
and eidem:e, either because the elections have
dlta pointed roe, or because of a financial panic.
How those who have been so unqualifiedly
for Mr. Johnson's impeachment, and even now
declare that on the evidence presented he ought
to be imp ached, have beeu able to vole in the
creative, and thiougb the press to pronounce
to pn mptlv against it witnout leading the evi
dence or even the reports of the committee, I
am at a lor to understand, unless 1 admit that
they are all under the influence of a general
pmiic.
I do not hesitate to say that the report of tho
Judiciary Committee will be sustained when it
comes to be eaie'ully examined hy the profession
and an intelligent public. To-day J ude Wood
ward (Pa.), one of the ablest Democratic lawyers
in Consiesn. did not besltute to sustain the
position of the majority ol the commit'eo on the
law cf Impeachment, and so tar as I kno the
leudlng lawyers and law writers sustain the
views of the impcacheis.
Tbut the evidence compiled by tbo committee
will put Andiew Johnbcn into history where he
belongs, no impartial msn wbo reads It can
doubt. Least of all, will this evidence, or tbo
repoitofthe committee, or the action of any
one voting for Impeachment "reitore Mr. John
son to the place he occupied in the hearts of the
people, which he lorfeitod by bis treachery to
his party ind humanity."
We w ho favored impeachment must now await
the verdict of those who are to come after ns.
No one of all the actors in this movement can
escape history.
Time is the lrlend of truth and the enemy of
all falsehood, and I am confident that time and
history will vindicate the purity of our motives
aud the justice of the verdict we bave made.
Respectfully, J. M. Ashlit.
The good people of Dresden are highly
amused and astonished at the presence among
them of a rich and learned Irish gentleman,
with hia equally learned daughter. They
neither eat meat nor drink wine oonsider
artificial warmth as unwholesome never have
a fire in their rooms, and keep their windows
open day and night. They have made Dres
den their headquarters for the last few years,
and thence make ezonrsions and journeys, as
far as Italy, Spain, and Frauoe, on foot, disdain
ing the use of the modern means of locomotion,
that of railroads more particularly. Ovid and
other old classics are their constant travelling
companions.
In the four capitals London, Paris,
Berlin, and Vienna the greatest proportion
of births takes place in the last-named city.
The fewest in Paris. Of legitimate births,
Paria shows the smallest number, London the
greatest. As regards the number of deaths,
Vienna shows the greatest mortality, London
the contrary. The greatest number of mar
riages takes place in Berlin, in Vienna the
fewest. Paris can show the greatest number
of children that are stillborn, Vienna the
fewest. Of all four towns the proportion of
individuals to each house is in Vienna the
greatest, in London the least. London con
sumes in proportion the greatest quantity of
meat, Berlin consumes least.
The German magazine, Unscrt Zeit, de
scribes a enrions invention made by a Russian
officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Weyde. It consists
of an apparatus for throwing light on objects
under water for the use of divers, eto. The
machine is said to be very inexpensive, and
experiments made with it by the Russian and
Prussian Governments in the sea near Cron
stadt, and in the river Spree, have produced Tery
satisfactory results. A very important use of
this invention is that it enables the officers of
a chip of war to discover any submarine mines
or torpedoes sunk under it by the enemy. It
must, of conrse, also greatly facilitate the reco
very of sunken ships and other objects at the
bottom of the sea.
