Little folks, I have a real, "certain trne," 'pon honor storv to tell you. 1 know oyery one of the'little (rirls and boys that bought this "croquet"; and I myself have seen them yes, I have played with the dear little mallet and balls and (shall I confess it 7 1 Lillieand Koeie and Harvey and Charlie have fre quently Deaten m ine oesntitui grove in which they play is the Yery same where we used to gather butter cups and violets; where we used to run from imaginary mad -dogs; where we used to tear our dresses, wear out our shoes and have "iust the- most fan.' Lillie and Rosie and Annie, Carrie, and josie, au live near tins grove. 1 his is their play-ground, and here they hav 'beautiful times.' One beautiful day last bummer we wanted througfl'ihe grove and found them, .busily, at work in their new miUlner store. Chariia was the cashier (that means the boy who took care of the money). ' His money counter was covered with 'greenbacks.' Not real paper greenbacks; but beauti ful green-backed maple-leaves, while clover-leaves answered for checks. Here were beautiful little bonnets made of oak-leaves, trimmed with sweet-violets and fringed with, the feathery fern-leaves; beautiful wreaths for the hair, made of pink and white clover-blossoms 'just from Paris and London," Rosie assured me. They seemed to be having "great fun": but when I came back for the bonnet I had ordered the children had all gone. The bonnets, with their wilted trimmings, were lying on the ground. The mossy counters were strewn with faded flow ers, and they had evidently "broken up" or sold out. I afterward learned what happened. Bell, a sweet cousin from an adiomincreitv. suddenlv ask ed the children if they could play croc quet. Alas ! a croquet set was just thei very thing that they had Deen wishing for; and the mere mention of It was enough to make the "playing milliner store" out of the question. "Whatisit thomefung to eatT" ques tioned Lillie. "No, you little goosie-poosie!" an-! swered Harvey who had a boyish in-1 stinct that little girls were not suppoa to know much, "I ant't a goothie-poothie, Harvey; ! and if you thay I am I won't play, nor 1 stay to thuppor either." (Miss Lillie had. innocently mtormea Jdtarvey mat she could stay an hour; antl if his ma inthtthtea she couia stay to tea.) Lillie was set right on the croquet question. Annie suggested that they should go and ask her mother how they couia earn money to ouy a set: and awav they frisked. Not one of them walked children seldom do-real, eenuiue. merry children: little, prim old women sometimes do. Rosie skip ped Annie run, Lillie danced, Harvey pranced,somebody fell down, and then, of course, everybody giggled. Lillie was very small, ana sue wore her mother's large sun-down hat; so it was not verystange that saucy Charlie told her she "looked like atoad-stool." They finally succeeded lh getting in to the house, where theyfound Annie's mother; who, after hearing their ques tion and thinking a few moments, told them they could have a little tableau party, to which they could charge ten cents admission. Well, then there was clapping of hands. Lillie nearly danc ed a hgure out or the carpet,- Harvey turned a "somersault," and altogether the scene was very impressive. The tildren finally were quiet. Annie 'trad the old "Lady's Books," and thy commenced their search for tab leauVpictures. Tw weeksfrom that time the friends of the children were invited to attend a little "tableau party" admission ten cents. The evening at last arrived. The front parlor was well filled with persons quite anxious for the opening of the folding doors. At last tha first tableau is announced ".Mr. ana Mrs. Tom Thumb." Oh! see ! Well, isn't that splendid? Harvey in dress-coat and silk hat, with cane and eye-glasses. Lillie in a long dress, her sunny cnrls tortured into a real waterfall. The picture was complete, and the laugh universal wnen tnrougn ine partially cl"sed doors a little lisping voice said : "Mamma, Harvey thaid he had mothst a mind to kith me; and I wouldn't have been very mad if he had." iMgnt ana morning" were wen rep resented by the dark-haired Annie dressed in black, and the light-haired Josie in wmte. "The May Queen" made a beautiful picture. The Bower-crowned queen with her white-robed at JiSkdants, form' ed a charming little group. When the l Flower of the Familv': was announced, the curtain rose, and lo! a large barrel, while leaning against it was a sack, upon which was painted 'Family Flour.' Everybody laughed at tne vome, ana thought it ail a joke. when a curly head appeared from the top of the barrel, then little bare shoulders, asnansled white dress. tinv slippered feet, ana "Lillie," a verita ble flower of the family, stood before the surprised audience. Then I believe somebody sung " Robin Red Breast," dressed as Little Red Riding Hood. (If I make any mistakes, x nope Sophie or Annie will correct them, as I have seen so many tableaux since then I may be incorrect. If it was JRosie that was the flower, I beg her pardon Roses and Lillies ought ever to be tbe flowers of the family.) Lastly came a saturaay-nigni scene : little old women endeavoring to get children almost as larze as themselves ready for the coming Sabbath. Little tangled curls being orusnea, nine oare ieet being washed a busy runny seene. when the doors were ciosea every body knew the tableSaux were worth ten cents, ana tne children were ae lighted to know that thoy could buy a set of croquet. They also learnea that tnere is great comfort in being able to earn anything. They enjoy their game intensely, are very generous with it, and would ad vise any little girls or boys who wish for one to earn it, instead of teasing father or mother for the money. So it is all through life, dear little folks ; if you would be loved and ad mired, earn the love of friends by noble work deeds of kindness.

C. CWawwtarcKS.. THE C1XCISTSATI ENQUIRER OJf GEN. ROSECRANS, CHOICE HEADING FOR DEMOCRATS. From the Cincinnati Daily Enquirer, Feb. 11, 1863. UKSERAL BOSECRANS COMPARED WITH GENERAL MILKOT. We have noticed the party emana tions of tienerats-aiiiroy and Koscecrans. lhese things are Deco minor common The simultaneonsness of their appear ance Indicates with unmistakable cer- taintv that they owe their oricrin to common impulse; and their conformity in tone ana maiwns aaaitionai testi mony to the same affect. Tbeyaivor of Morton ana xoa, ana nave tie musty smell of the rooms where party politi cians congregate to plot ana conspire, General Rosecrans ft aentleman cer tainly of no known political sagacity or experience, who has never distin guished himself in the counsels of his coun try or m tne assemoaes of nis jeuow-citt-zens doea not hesitate to tell the peo ple of Ohio that be who i9 in favor of "peace on any terms," is "fit only to be a slave." and that he who eives utter ance to a peace sentiment is "a traitor 'o his country, ana oeserves tne scorn and contempt of all honorable men." General Milroy informs the people of Indiana that when "we", tne army "have crushed armed treason at the South, and res'ored tbe sovereignty of oor Government over tnose misguided States, we will, npon our retarn, while our hands are in, also exterminate trea son at the North, by arms, if need be, and seal, by the blood of traitors. wherever found, the permanent pence of oor country, and the perpetuity of free government to an future genera tions." ' Tbe trailors are those who eive utter ance to peace sentiments. The treat ment proposed for such traitors is ex termination by the military power. The time is now. This is the programme on paper, according to these officers ; and these officers are commanders in the army. It is certainty a threat or civil war at home an organized but demoralized and insubordinate army against an unorgan ized and peaceful people upon an issue of party opinion. The army, so tar as tt is representea bv these officers, is ready; anfi that which was gotten up as a bugbear will end in a tragedy. rFrom the Cincinnati Daily Enquirer, Feb. L 27, 1863. THI ENQUIRER CONSIDERS ITS ELF INSUL TED. General Rosecrans siid. in a public letter to the Governor of Ohio, that "he who entertains the sentiment in, favor of 'peace opon any terms,' is fit only to be a slave ; and he who utters it at this time, is moreover, a traitor to his coun rv, and deserves the scorn and con tempt of all honorable men." Now we can easily imagine terms noon which we are distinctly and deci dedly in favor of peace. We therefore, come within the intent and meaning of General Rosecrans' definition of a traitor to his country. Moreover, we believe that General Rosecrans -naa, tn part, the in quirer in his thoughts when he penned the sentences we have quoted. He is, there fore, a legitimate subject ror treatment at our hands. In proportion to the in sult which he has inflicted upon us, we have treated him gently. rFrom the Cincinnati Daily Enquirer, L , 1. A 1QQ 1 general rosecrans 'imposing flour- IfiH." It is reported by telegraph, on tbe trenerth of a letter from Murfreesboro, that General Rosecrans has issued an order prohibiting the Cincinnati En quirer and Chicago Times from circula ting in the Armv Of the Cumberland. As the Cincinnati r-uquirer ts nut, suwr that it has any circulation in the A rmy of the Cumberland, the question whether or not the report be true is rot one in which we are practically mucn interes ted. The act of prohibition, however much comfort it may afford the officer by whom it is published, is rather an niDonni nouna than - a., aamagia blow. It may, if carried into vigilant F execution, diminish the sales of the tn-i qmror oy a aozen or so; nu n, ai, tuis very limited expense to ns. uencrsi Rosecrans is enabled to fret up a bril liant exposition of his own loyalty and patriotism, we are willing, in considera tion of old friendship, that be shall prohibit until bens entirely satisfied. IRISH REPUBLICANS IN COUN CIL. The Irish Republican National Con vention, which assembled at Chicago on the 4th instant, adopted the follow ing declaration oi principles : 1. Resolved. That it is the duty of the Irish people in this republic, and of all men over the world, to give their support to those who on principle con tend tor the rights ot ail ana to pertect liberty without regard to race, color, creed or sex. 3. Resolved. That loyalty to the American Republic is fixed and unal terable ; the determination to stand by the only free Government on earth. ana to preserve ana aeiena it against, the attacks and machinations of all its enemies, is the first political duty which the Irish citizens ol this country are called upon to discharge. 3.

The first resolution was passed by vote of 51 to 41). The words "or sex" was the chief oh, jection to it. There was also a divided sentiment on tne in resolution. A resolution was offered and passed, after considerable debate, requesting Congress to pass a law making foreign ers citizens in one year after their ar rival in this country. A resolution was also passed in favor of the formation of immigration socie ties, i Also, against any distinction as to race or color ia membership of Trades Unions.

We have shown repeatedly that the late General Assembly of unhappy memory, elected as an experiment in retrenchment and reform, was a most unfortunate experiment for the) State of Ohio; that it made three sessions in one term ; that it sat longer aad drew a larger per diem than any Legislature ever before assembled in Ohio ; that it squandered the people's money reck lessly, by direct appropriation and ex-. penditure ; that, in addition to this, it authorized and permitted larger local expenditures than any other General Assembly has ever dared to do ; and, as if these were not the utmost limit of endurance, that it authorized and em powered County Commissioners by law lo absolutely tax the people without limit, putting it tn their power to prac tically confiscate all the private prop erty within their jurisdiction under pretext of making certain public im- j proveiiients As part of the retrenchiDir exDloitsof this General Assembly and its officers. it is well to remember that C. B, Flood, clerk of the Senate and Editor of the Ohio Statesman, draws pay during the two years, for fifteen hundred and seven ty six days woi h or, eight hundred and forty-five more days than there are days in two years, incudtug all Sundays, holidays, and resting days of every description.

We find the follow ine unprecedented extra allowances to Clerks and Sergeants-at-Arms, already receiving the highest per diem ever pnid in the State. .

Hut the Democracy evidently went npon the assumption that they "had a good thing ot it," ana that it was as well to -make nay while tne sun shone." . Do you ask, in astonishment, " In the name Heaven, what other way teas there, in which a pretext could be found for appropriating money?" You do not understand the ingenuity of the Democratic mind, wnen tnere is money to be had. A resolution was passed giving all the clerks, sergeants-at-arms ana messenger Doys mileage ror the three days' session of 1868 1 A thing not only unheard of before, and un precedented, but unconstitutional. But this is not an. u nere were leg islative committees traversing the State in every direction, on all sorts of business, tunneling ana learning at the expense of different towns visited by them, and traveling on free passes. but drawing from the State with un deviating regularity five dollars a day for salary, and large sums for expenses thev were not at. These committees drew for the interim between the ses sions of 1868 and 1809 the sum of Eight Thousand JVine Jiunarea ana Jxinety-one Dollars and Eighty -two Cents five times as much as has been expended in the same way during the last ten years. Wo must aamit tnat tne .Democracy seem to have made a pretty clean job of plucking the public goose ! The re form Legislature of 1868-9 cost the State of Ohio 260 days of the most dis graceful legislation ever mnictea on the State, at an expense of SPico Hun dred and Thirty-nine Thousand Five Hundred and Forty Dollars and Forty eight Cents, ($239,540 48,) for per diem and mileage, exclusive of expenses of committees, fcc. These figures are all from the Auditor's boolcs they are offi cial they will not be disputed. Much as the Democracy may desire to ignore so damnable a record, they dare not go back on these omciai ngures. And we have much more in reserve. which will appear in due time. ROSECRANS ON PEACE DEMO CRATS. That the true and gen uine Democra cy may learn what kind ol a candidate for Governor the bogus Democracy, composed of Baber and other renegade Republicans, have given them, we pre sent below the letter of General Rose crans acknowledging the resolution of thanks irom the Legislature oi unio, which was transmitted to the Com mander of the Army of the Cumber land after the hard fought battle of Murfreesboro.

Actnal receipts up to June StHh amounted to one hundred and seve atv nine millions eight hundjed thousand, which are expected to be increased by amounts on the way to one hundred and eighty-two millions exceeding tbe most satiglline enliuiato about twelve millions.
