No DIFFERENCE.-We were standing in a crowd near a court house, in one of the wes tern counties of this State, at the time of the Congressional campaign, two years ago, when we witnessed the following scene:-One of the candidates for Congress, a tall, rather good-looking, and long-nosed gentleman, with the hoary locks of age clustering round his temples, and who, by-the-by, was a perfect stranger in the county, had shaken hand with nearly every man in the dense crowd, and inquired after their wives and children with all the familiarity of a long acquaintance. He saw one man however, at the very out skirts of the assembled multitude, with whom he had not yet spoken. Elbowing his way through the throng, he came to where the un spoken-to individual was standing, and apol ogised to him for not having paid his respects to him sooner. "It don't make a bit of dif ference," said the outsider, " I ain't a going to vote for you no how." Our candidate left there as quickly as his legs could carry him. -Fayetteville Argus. I7- A gentleman, the other evening, ob jected to playing cards with a lady, because, he said, she had such a " winning way " about her. "What's that?" said a schoolmaster, pointing to the letter X. "Daddy's name." "No, it isn't your daddy's name, you blockhead I It's X." " I'll be shot if it is! It's daddy's name; blowed if it ain't. I've seen him write it often. A thief being caught robbing a bank, when asked what he was doing, answered-" Only taking notes." A certain preacher of universalism had been preaching in a country school-house for several successive sabbaths, to convince the people that there was no hell. At length it was announced that at his next meeting a col lection for his benefit. The day arrived, and the collection was taken up in a hat. When the "deacon " had passed through the congre gation, and given all an opportunity tereon tribute, he returned to the pulpit and gravely emptied the contents of the hat upon the desk before the preacher. And such a " collec-. tion! " A few coppers, with old buttons, pieces of tin, broken jewsharps, horse-nails, and almost every worthies thing that a man could carry to church in his pocket! The preacher was thunderstruck; but, recovering his self-possession in a moment, and gasing upon the " collection," before him, exclaimed, " well, I am not so certain whether there is a hell or not, but I am certain there ought to be one for such fellows as you are ;" and ta. king his hat ad left the house. GEN. PaLissIER.-The correspondent of the New York Times thus discourses on the new Commander of the French army in the Crimea : Pelissier is thought to be eminently the man for the situation, and a well-known act in his career in Africa would seem to sustain this opinion. He was the author of a piece of atrocity in Algeria, in 1845, absolutely without parallel in the annals of modern civilised warfare, and with which all Christ endom rang at the time. He was then Colonel, and was pursuing with a body of troops, the tribe of Ouled Riaha, yet unqub. dued and possessing a secure retreat in a series of labyrinthine caverns. They fled to this asylum, and Peliasier eaused the mouth to be filled up with fagots and wet straw. He threatened the Arabs with suffocation, unless they surrendered and gave up their arms and horses. A frightful tumult was now heard in the caverns, mused as was afterwards learned, by a quarrel upon the question of surrender. They resolved by large majority to die rather than submit. The inhuman Frenchman at Qet the gree brsncbes an4 et straw tobea l s,. .o of the wesne , and children soht to aesesper but wame shot by their own husband and fathers, who knew what their fate would be in the hands of their captors. Some OftheFrench soldiers stopped up their ears to deaden the appalling cries of the victims, while others ran away from the terrible scene. When the ·fre- as extin guished, the French entered the cavern. It was strewn with dead bodies, trampled under foot and piled into heaps. Some were found standing up with their faces jammed into clefts, where they had died, gasping for air. Many had dropped into chasms, beyond reach. Others were killed by falling masses of red hot stone. Others were trodden to death by the eattle which had taken refuge with them. Ou(t of one thousand men, women and chil dren, but thirty-seven escaped; and thus the whole tribe was exterminated.
