Mr. William Wocxihouse was oatarally a very timid man. Not ibal be was lucking1 in moral or physical courage, but be was afraid it the women. On all other occasi oris he was qnut to tbe emergency, be it whatever ii might, bot place bim Ute-a-tete with a woman, sad, to om a vulgar but expressive phrase, be was done for. His mother bad Iodr ago settled down to the arjcomfortable con vie! ion that William would never marry, and the girls bad arrived at tbe same conclusion; and it bad become quite tbe thing to say, in making comparisons, "As great a fool as Will Woodhouse!" For take note, bashful young gentlemen however much ladies may admire modesty in tbe other sex, they invariably despise a man who has not heart enough to say to the girl of bis choice, "I love you." Will admired all tbe girls in his way, but he looked upon tbem very much as sensible people look upon a hornet's Dtst, as a curious piece of architecture, but not safe to be fa miliar with. So be kept his distance, and in the mean time arrived at the mature age of twen'y tbree. Then he met tor tbe first time, at a picnic party, Adelaide Brown. We believe people with the stoniest hearts fall in love at picnics, and from that hour Will bad no com fort of big life. Sleeping or waking, bis dreams were full of tbe beautiful Miss Brown. Surely there never was another of the numer ous Brown family like hei! Blue eyes, while muslin dres, with knots of pink ribbon brown hair, red lis, pearly teeth, snowy bauds all danced together iu a miscellaneous all batids around," before bis distorted vis ion, Adelaide, all unconscious of tbe trouble she bad caused, went ber way. breaking the hearts of most of the young gentlemen in Hiab- oridge, and trying baid to fracture tbe lew tbat remained whole. She was visiting ber aunt Hooper, and it is an undeniable fact tbat lariies always take best where they are not known. This is do libel oo tbe sex no indeed! for with gentle men this truth is still more applicable. Mrs. Hooper was a widow lady of no small personal attractions in ber owu estimation, and if she was not so young as ehe might have been, she thought she was, and behaved accoidingly. She still auected short sleeves, and proluse ringlets of glossiest black tbongb envious individuals persisted in it tbat ber curls weremade at the hairdresser's. These same persons, also, believed tbat she wus anx ious to e apply the place of the dear deceased as soon us possible! For a week after meeting with Adelaide, Will bore up bravely. Tbe second meetinfr destroyed all tbe stock of composure be had been boarding up. He took desperately to tbe Muses. and walked away to tbe infinite de struction of shoe leather, aud the disgust of bis practical papa. He met Adelaide, dow, frequently. High- bridge was very gay. There was a' singing school, a lyceum, a "society," and then tie young folks got up excursions to the surround ing hills for it was yet eaily autumn, and nature was in her robe of state. There was an excursion to Mount Giblo, j fineay, and there- Wilt 'had the ecstatic pleasure, of treading j on Adelaide' dress, thereby (browing -ber headlong into a pile ol i brusn, ancrwbile Laura Blake picked her op and help bei pin on ber flounces, he stood by half frightened out of his wits, and moment arily expecting the mountain to open and swallow him up. . From that time be pined rapidly. His ap petite was a thing of the past. His saother thought him in a quick decline, and dosed bim with boarbuund aud Dr. Perkiu's patent pa ciGc pills. He grew worse and worse. - At last, thinking himself near bis end, he confessed to bis molher. She was thunder struck at first, but afterwaid, like a sensible woman, she advUed bim to put on his "tother clothes" and go right over and lay the case before Miss Brown. It couldn't kill him, she said, and then if she refused him why, thert was as good fish in tbe sea as ever, &c. Will took tbree days to consider, and at tbe end of tbe time h?s mind was made op. He swallowed a double dose of blackberry cor dial, donned his fljnie colored vest, and black and blue pluids brushed his hair till it shone like ebony, covered bis heud with bis father's ten dollar beaver, and made the best of bis way to Mrs. Hooper's. Xot tbat be intended to ask Adelaide but Mrs. U coper. If be could only get the aunt over to bis cause, and employ ber to stale the condition of bis heart to her oeice, be should b happy. He felt assured that be never could live through coufessing himself to Ade laide; and, if he did, aud she should say no, he was satisfied he should Taint away right on the spot! As good fortune would have it, be found Mrs. Hooper aloue, iu her best gown and ber best humor. She wus charmed to see bim, and treated him to nuts aud cider, and a seat on the sola so near herself, that poor Wi!l wa al Lia wit's end to Irurue the first words of bia errand. They talked of the weather and the crops till the clock si ruck ten. Tbe widow tried to inuke bim think it was only nine; but be was not so fur gone but that be could count. He felt tbat the terrible moment could no longer be delayed. He must make a beginning: ' Mrs, Hooper," raid be, "I came over ibis evening " be hesitated. Yes, Will," said she encouragingly. "I came over" ,'' Yea, I know you did," still more encourag ingly. "I came over to ask a great favor of you." "Well, you couldn't have come to anybody that would be readier to do you a kinduess, William." "Thank you." Tbe sweat stood on his TO NEWS, LITERATURE, DELAWARE, OHIO, MAY 27, 1864. forehead io great drop3. "But this is a very delicate business, very! I came to ask you to to to " "Go on. Do not be afraid. I am listen ing." "The fact of it is, I'm in love! desperately; there! I've done it!" - - "Mercy me! Why, William! and. I never mistrusted it never! Well, of all things!" And tlie widr.w edged a little closer and put ber fat band in William's. "Yes, I'm in love, and I came to ask you if you would "Will I? To be sure I will! How could you think otherwise? I have always thought so much of yu! But it iw sudden! What will folks ay?" " "Deuced if I care!" cried Will, elated at tbe prospect before bim; "it's nobody's business! Am 1 to be wretched on account of what people will say? Don't bug me so, Mrs. Hooper I beg I ain't used to it; and and, what was that noKies" "Tbe mice, I guess. Dear William, how glad I am yon told me!" "Aud you'll ask Adelaide, and make it all right with her?" " Adelaide? Ob! she'll have no earthly ob jections! Of course not!" "Are you sure? If I was only certain of it! Ob! Mrs. Hooper, I loved ber the mo ment I set my eyes on her!" "Her! Who?" "Why, your neice, Adelaide Brown. She is tbe only woman on earth that I could ever be happy with! I shall die if I da not get her!" Mrs. Hooper turned purple. She caught np the poker and flew at our bero like a ma niac. He made for tbe door, she following close. "I'll show you how to insult a respectable woman!" Bhe cried, "I'll show you how to steal the affrfci ioni of a guileless heart, and then prove false!" each "showing" accompanied by a thump from tbe poker. Will at last succeeded in putting the door between bim and his antagonist, and, in frantic haste be dived down over tbe steps, and at tbe bottom reeled full into the arms of Adelaide Brown herself, who was just returning from a friend'i 'Don't let ber get me!" he cried; "I'd rather rlie than have ber hug me agaia! It's yon I love, not ber, and she's madder than a hat ter!" It was not a very elegant proposal, but Miss Brown's tell possession insured Will's everlasting weal. She accepted him on the spot, for she bad liked bim all along, and nothing bad stood between them but bis abominable bashfulness. Will is a happy husband and father now, but even to this day the sight of a widow will make bim tremble, tbey are so intimately as sociated in bis mind, with pokers. WHY A SOUTHEBM-BORN MAN IS ANTI-SLAVERY. , There was an immense Union war meeting at Bryan's Hall, Chicago, the other' evening, at which Gov. Yates, of Illinois, was the prin cipal speaker. In tbe coarse of his remarks he said: I am anti-slavery, not because I was born in New England, and have my prejudices a gainst the Southern people, but because I was born in tbe South. There center all the memo ries of my youth there is the home of my kindred, and I believe that' the warm genial pupations of humanity fluw in as deep a current through Southern veins as in any people be neath the sun imt slavery bas been the eauk er of tbe SouLli to eat out both its substance and its manhood, and to subject it to a boast ful, insulting, arrogant aristocracy which from the babbit oi (yranizing over the poor slave, has become too pampered and arrogant to sub mit to the rightful authority of good govern ment and laws. Slavery not only oppressed ibe African race, sundering husband from wife and father from boo, exacting service without remuneration, but degraded the -poor white man, deprived aim or bis labor, divided tbe .'and into large plantations, so tbat the white population was sparse, and schools few and re- Tiote. It stood as a perpetual living wall, a black and ghastly spectre to roll bark tbe tide of em igration which was pouring from Europe and New bngland, and which sought the prairies and woods of the Northwes,, and which, under the genius and life-giving energy of, free labor and free institutions, has marched forward with stalwart giant tread to weaUb and power. wime tbe South, with its fertile soil and genial sky, bas drooped and -withered beneath tbe curse ot slavery. It is for tbe South, as weil as for the welfare of the country, that I wish to see slavery extinguisaed.

The Yallan- dighani family entertain feelings of admiration, not to say love, for the negro ruce in general, the female sex in praticalar, tbat is incredible.

Tbe pair live in this city. His brother, living oo tbe opposite side of the river, is also married to a negress. Clem's nephews have siolen his thunder. By tbe way. as this interesting youth has, like bis uncle. got into trouble through bis love of party, by voting illegally, for which he was arrested, and as he like his uncle, is pecuniarily pressed for pocket pieces, we suggest that the Democrat ic luil ics of ibis city, in imitation of their sis ters in Ohio, get up a ten cent fund tor bia im mediaie necessities.

THE SPEAKER'S PAGE. No one who has been accustomed to at tend the sessions of Congress during the past fifteen years, bas fa led to notice, at tbe right of tbe Speaker, a tall slim, pale-faced, bright looking lad, who gradually grew to manhood. and still retained bis position aud title, which wa3 mat ot ispeauers t"age. Ao matter what party was io power in Congress, Thad. Morrice. was retained. Every new Speaker found bim an almost indispensable assistant. Standing just at the Speaker's elbow, with hi arrn leaning upon the dek, his chin resting upon his baud, which was between the Speak er and tbe audience, in the atiiiude of whis pering to the Sreaker. faithful Tbadeus bas stood during many sessions of Congress, the prompter of Boyd, Orr, Pennington. Grow and Colfax. It is said he knew more of Par iamentary law than any man io America. Aud he knew every member of the House in all these Congresses ; it was his special busi uess to know tbem. No speaker could get along with out such an assistant, at first. When Pennington was speaker a good portion of all the words be uttered were literally put iuto bis ear by Tbad. He did not know one- quarter of tbe members even by sight, and was sadly deficient in parlimentary law. When any member arose, he would say, "the gentleman from," generally without the least idea what State he was to name, but so prompt was Thad to give it, and so unob served in doing so, that not one in a hundred, who was unacquainted wi'b tbe process, would imagine but what Peanini'on knew all tbe members. And many a time the old man would commence the statement of a question, not knowing bow he was to finish his sentence, which was furnisued and finished by the youthful parlimentarain at bis elbow. No Speaker that ever presided over the House was so well able to dispense with tbe services tbat Tbad. Morrice performed as Scbulyer Colfax, who is the most successful Speaker ev er elected by an American House of Repre sentatives ; yet Mr. Colfax cannot fail to miss greatly the '"Speaker's page," and many old members, amid the bustle and hurry of legis lative tiflaus, will fi.id time to indulge in a ret rospective glance at the servicies, and pay a tribute to the memory of the ever faithful Tbaddeus Morrice, (recently deceased) whos prompt and timely needful words will never be whispered into the ear of another Speak er. WE TOLD YOU SO." Told us what ? Why, the uegro was inca pable of taking care of himself, and that if be was ever free, we should have to take care ol him ? 0 yes, we remember. And you 'told' us several other things : 1. Tbat if tbe blacks weie ever freed tbey would flood the North. Well, half a million are practically free, aud where are tbey found in tbe North How many have left tbe Dis trict of Columbia, or Beaufort, or Hilton Head,, or Frruandina, or New Orleans, and gaoe into Maine, or New Y ork, or Ohio ? Where are the blacks that we were 'told' were to inundate tbe Free States? Precisely where all sensible men knew tbey would be under tbeir native Southeru skies, where they are most wanted, cao do best for them selves, and should remain. When freedom moves down South, tbey have no need to ruu .up North to cour tber. 2. You 'told' us tbat the flood of contra bands rolling up North among our snow banks, would bring wages down to ten cents a day. How are wages now, under tbe dawn of freedom ? 3.. You 'told us negroe would never work except under masters. How, then, were tbey to work so industriously iu the Free Stairs as to bring Irish labor down to teu cents a ddy ? 4. You 'told' us tbat the Negroes Dever would leave tbeir raas'ers thy loved them so intensely. No, indeed! Tbey would fight to the death to repel us "invaders." . How came we then to have any freedmen to care for? Why have they fallen io by thousauds as our triumphant banner bas lit up the dark domaiu of treason ? 5. You 'told' us the Negro would not fight He was 'too stupid' 'too cowardly,' and we know Bot what. What .then of Vicksburg, and Port Hudson , Honey Springs, and Fort Wagner? Ask Col. Higginsonand Geo. Sax on, and Admiral Porter, and Gen. Blunt. 'I am no abolitionist,' said Rear-Admiral Por ter, at Vicksburg after beholding tbe valor of the . African, "I am no abolitionist ; but tbe African posesses far more intelligence and ca pacity and shrewdness tuns is spuposed iu tbe North or South .' Tbey are generally supe rior to tbeir masters. They are much abused, and I am anxious to see their condition im proved.' 'Won't fight !' and yet we have 50 000 in tbe Federal Army, and more coming ; and some of tbe best fighting of this war bas been done by freedmen ? STATEIBOARD OF SCHOOL EXAMINERS. Tbe State Board of Examiners of Common Schools met at the office of the State School Commissioner on Thursday of last week, and organized by the election of M. F. Cowdry, President, E. T.

INTERESTS. NO. 9. How the Money Come. Queer John hss sung how monry goes. But how it comes, who knows f Who ki'owaf Why, every Yankee mother's son Can te 11 you how tthe thing'1 is done. It comes ly honest toil and trade : i By wielding sledge and driving spade, j And building ships, balloons, and drums: And that's tbe way tbe money comes. How does It come f Why. as it goes, By SDinnirg, wenrine. knitting boe. By Atitchine shirts ar.d coats for Jews, Erecting chnrches, renting news. And manufacturing boots and shoes: For thumps, and twists, ami cutp.and hues, And HE.ns and hkartm, tongues, lungs, and thumbs And that's the way the money comos. How does it come? The way is plain By raisijg cotton, corn, and cak; By wind and steam, lighting and raln By gui'ling ships across Ihe main : -Bv Huililtng bridges, roadB and dams. And siwping streets aud disriring clams, With whistles, hi's I and ho's I and hum's I And that's the way the money comes. The money comes how did I say ? Not always in an hovest way ; It c.imP8 by thicks as well as toil. But hew is thutf why, slick nsoii, By putting peas la coffee batrs ; By swapping watches, knives, and nags, A id peddling woodks clicks an I plumbs ; And that's tb way the tnouey comes. How does it come? wait let me see, It very s'ldotn comes to me ; H oomes by nrLB, I guess, and scalb, S imetimes, by ridiug on a rail ; But oftener that's the way it goes. From silly bHles and fast young beaux ; It comes in big. nay, littlk sitxs. Aye, that's the way the money comes. An IrMjiiiaiitive Down-Easter- A gentleman riding in an eastern railway car, which was rather scantily supplied with passengers, observed in a seat before him a lean, slab-sided Yankee, every feature of whose face seemed to ask a question, and a little cir cumstance soon proved that he possessed a more 'inquiring mind.' Before him. occupying the entire seat, sat s lady dressed in deep mourning, and after shift ing his position several times, and manceaver ng to get an opportunity to look into her face, he at length caught br eye and com menced : 'In affliction ?' 'Yes, sir.' replied the lady. 'Parent ? father or mother ?' 'No. sir.' 'Child, perhaps hov or girl ?' 'No. sir, not a child ; I have no children.' 'Husband, then, I expect.' 'Yes.' was the enrt anwer. 'Hum ! cbolery? a tradin' man, may be?' 'My husband was a sea-faring man cap tain of a vessel, ne did not die of cholea, he was drowned.' 'Oh, drownded, eh ?' pursued the inquisitor, hesitating for a brief instant. 'Save his chist ?' Yes, the vessel was saved and my husband's efiVctp,' said the widow. 'Was they?' asked the down-easter, his eves brichtening un. 'Pions man ?' 'He was a member of the Methodist church.' The next question was delayed, but it came. 'Dnn't you think that yon have a great pause to he thankful that he was a pious man and saved his chist ?' 'I di,' said the widow, abrnDflv, and turned her head to look nut of the window. The in defatigable 'pump' chanced his position, held the wicow by his glittering eye once mors, and propounded one more qiery, in a little Iiwer tone, with his head sliarhHy inclined for ward over the back of tbe seat, then the deli cate qnes'wn came out : 'Was yon calculating to pet married again ?' 'Sir.' raid tbe widow, indignantly, 'you are impertinent.' And she left her seat, and took another on the other side of the ear. ' 'Pears to be a little huffy V said the ineffa ble bore, taming to onr narrator behind him ; 'she needn't he mad ; I don't want to hurt her teennsrs. What rtio they make you piy Sor that umbrella vou've eot in yonr hand ? It's a mil pooty one.' No answer was returned to Ihe impertinent querist, and he was left alone to his own mm ings the remainder of the journey. Josh 1 iillinc: on Dogs. Dogs are various in kind, and thanks tew an all-wise Providence, tha are various in nnm ber. They are tbe onla animal of the brnte perswashiin who have voluntary left a wilde stait of nature, and cum in under the flag o man. Tha are not vaeabones bi choice, and love to belorg to somebody. The fact endea'8 them tew us and i hav alwas rated the dog bz about seventh cuin tew the human specious. Tha knnt talk, bat I ha kan lik your hand; this shows that their hearts tz in the plase where other folks' tnnga iz 1 Dogs in the lump are useful, but tha are not always profit ranie in tne tump, t re Jewtoundlin dog iz useful tew save children from drowning, but you bev got tew hev a pond of water, and children running round kareless, or else the dog ain't profitable. Thare ain't nothing maid boarding a Newfoundtin dog. Rat Terriers are useful tew ketch rats, but the rats ain't profitable after you her kefched tbem. Tbe Sbepard dog is useful tew drive sheep, but if you hev to go and buy a flock ov sheep, and pay more than they are wuth. jist to keep the d'g bizzy, tho dog ain't profita ble, not much. Lip dogs are very useful, but if yu don't hold tbem in yure lap awl ihe time tha ain't profittable at all. Bulldogs are extremely useful, hut yu hev tew keep a bull tew, or else yu kant make ennvthing on the dog. The coach dog in one of the most useful dogs I know ov, but yu hav got to bav a coach and that ain't alwas pleasent or yu kant realize from the dog. Thus we see, that while dogs are generally useful, thare are times when they ain't generally profittable. T don't really luv a yaller dog, nor a mad dog, but with these tew unfortunate exrepshuns, " dredful hard work for me to sa a bard word acrin a dog ; the wag uv their tail hs what takes me. jEnny man who will bnse a dog will abuse a woman, and enny man that will abuse a woman iz thirty five or forty miles meaner than u pile of yaller doss.

An Englishman had heard of the Yankee habit of brnggirg, and thought he would cut he comb of that propensity. He saw some large watermelons on a market woman's stand. and walking up to her and pointing with a look of disappointment, said: "What, don't you raise Vgcer apples than those in Ameri ca ?" The woman looked at him onerniment, and retorted: ""Apples! Anybody might know you was an Englishman. Them's black berries !"

Tbe pay of a rebel' soldier is SI I per month; to that bis wages for four months would very nearly purchase a pound each of Cofil-e and Sugar with a yard of Calico. Three years pay would buy his family a barrel of Flour, a yard of Calico, a pound of Coflve, and almost a wand of Sugar. j-'A year' ."pay would very nearly purchase a gallon of Common Whisky, and two years' wages would almost pay for a pair of boots. Indeed, almost anything might be bought with a Confederate soldier's pay, provided yoa didn't want too much for your money. Tbe Richmond rate of exchange $18 Con federate for $1 Greenback, or $1 in Gold for $28 Confederate is probably more favorable to Mr. Memminger'8 manufacture than pre vails in any other capital on earth; still, it does not indicate a settled and healthy confi dence in Confederate success. In a republic nf Twelve Millions, baring an -army nearly Haifa Million strong, a dollar of the Govern ment currency ought to be worth at least a dime in the common currency of the commer cial world. Will those who charge tbat we habitually exaggerate theWestitution prevailing in Dixie, try to account for the admitted, proclaimed, incontestable fact, tbat four ounces of meat is the daily ration of Ihe Confederate soldier in the field? Would any such scrimped allow ance be dealt out by a Government desperate ly strueeling for existence if the scarcity of meat aud means were not appalling ? The SDrinefield (Masl Republican dis cussing the law and practice of retaliation, furnishes the following historical parallel : Du ring the war 1812 there was no instance of retaliation by tbe infliction of death, though the tight was repeatedly asserted in tbe strong est terms. The most noteworthy instance was when, after the battle of Queenstown, the Rritiah selected twentv-three Irish brisoners. to be sent to England to be tried for high treas on. Scott threatened retaliation, and an equal number of British prisoners were set apart to await the fate of tbe Irish. The British there- ipon jmprisoned forty-six Americans, and for-r-six British officers were immediately select ed an d held as hostages for their safety and restoration. 1 be matter nnany suDsiaea witu no executions on either side. The present copperhead mayor of Chicago, who claims to have been elected by a majori ty of 157, was elected by alien". The Tribune publishes the names of 49a who voted tor him, and yet so soon as a draft threatened them, went to the British Consul and took out protection papers. This list does not in clude all who voted tbat ticket a year ago. All the Democratic 'ffice holders of that city owe their places to this class of scamps, who have been foremost in voting, but are aliens when tbe country needs tbeir services. Since the occupation or Schleswig by the Germans, almost an entire change of the local officials bas been made, the use of Ihe Danish language is prohibited in the principal schools, the use of postage stamps and paper stamped with the Danish crown has been prohibited, praying for tbe King disallowed, and the cur rency of Denmark forbidden to be circula ted. Major General John Sedgwick, command ing the Sixth Corps of the Army of Ihe Po tomac, who was killed at Spottsylvania Court House, was a native ofConnecticut, and grad uated at West Point in 1837.

Find a fellow who is too lazy to work, or do anything else but drink whisky and curse Abolitionists, andtjwho couldn't own half a nigger if they were sell ing at. ten cents a dnzen, and you will find one whose political principles consist in the advoeacy of human slavery. . The representatives of tbe several insu rance companies which were interested in the htmiing of Colt's Armory, Hartford, Cot.n., have decided that tbe total amount of insur ance was $660,000.
