Halieck s assurance that he would within forty-eight hours strengthen Pope sufficiently to enable him to maintain his position on the line of the Rappahan nock, was no doubt based upon the ex pectation of the immediate arrival of the Army of the Potomac. That army, under McClellan, had been ordered to withdraw from the peninsula as early as the 3d of August. Its instructions were to proceed by water to Fortress Monroe and thence up Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac to the Acquia Creek landing. uccieiian, naving at nis command an immense fleet of transports, immediate ly but leisurely commenced putting his entire command, including even the cavalry, on ship-board, as if about to set forth on some expeditionary voyage. The Confederate commander well know ing that the time consumed by our forces in embarking and debarking alone would be ample for failing upon Pope, delayed not, as we have seen, to improve his opportunity. Before McClellan had gotten one quarter of his army afloat Lee was on the line of the Rapidan McClellan being notified of this and urged to hasten forward to Pope's relief discontinued his embarkation at Harri son s Landing and sent the bulk of his force overland to Fortress Monroe to take shipping at that point. This change of programme took place on the 16th of August, thirteen precious days after the order had been given to evacuate the peninsula and six days after the battle of Cedar Mountain. And now we come to one of those un solved riddles of the war involving if not a criminal blunder at least some in scrutable purpose beyond all human comprehension. The distance by land from Harrison's Bar to Fortress Monroe is not less than fifty miles and from the same point to Fredericksburg not over sixty. Either point was not distant more than four or at most five days' ordinary marching. One could be reached al most as soon as the other so far as dis tance is concerned. Why, then, at a juncture when delay was so dangerous ana promptness so important, was the Army of the Potomac sent by a circuit ous route to Fortress Monroe and thence through the tedious processes of em barkation and debarkation to Alexandria instead of being marched directly over land to Fredericksburg ? Let any one glace at the map and see if he can find any sufficient reason. Before McClellan had left Harrison's Landing, Lee, be it remembered, had moved off the bulk of his army toward Gordonsville leaving the route to Fredericksburg almost un obstructed. In fact, at no time during this campaign did the enemy occupy in force any of the fords of the Rappahan nock below its junction with the Rapi dan. On the contrary we have seen that General Pope, under instructions from Washington, held the line of that river to Fredericksburg as late as the 21st of August, by which time McClel lan should have arrived by the most leis urely rate of marching. And even allowing that Lee would have attempted to intercept him in his overland march to Fredericksburg, he could easily have established a new base of operations at White House, on the Pamunkey, or at almost any point on the lower Rappahannock. The enemy's course northward would then have been reversed, Washington would have been relieved from all danger. Pope, now re leased, could have made a diversion to ward Richmond, the Army of the Poto mac would have been interposed between that city and the army of Lee which would have been sandwiched between that of McClellan on the one hand and that of Pope on the other, while the theatre of war would have been trans ferred south of the Rappahannock in stead of being removed north of it to Manassas and thence across the Poto mac into Maryland. Let the reader take any good map of Virginia, locate the positions of the different armies on the 16th of August and see if the common est of common sense does not teach him that these deductions are both reasonable and correct. They are supported moveover by an alogy, and could General McClellan have forecasted the future he would have had a practical illustration of the entire feasibility of the overland march to b redencksburg and ot the great impolicy of the roundabout journey he was about to make. Directly after General Sher man had completed, by the capture of Savannah, his splendid "march to the sea" he received a very positive request, if it did not amount to an order, to em bark his army on transports and take it by water to Fortress Monroe and thence up the Potomac to the assistance of Grant before Richmond. Sherman re monstrated against this in the strongest terms, insisting that he could move his army to the required point nearly as soon by land, and so doing accomplish results of vastly greater consequence. His wishes were acceded to, his plans car ried out and the sequel fully proved his wisdom, tie conducted his army with its transportation and equipments com plete to Raleigh, and was about to ad vance it thence to Burkesville, in rear of Petersburg, when Lee surrendered. Had Sherman made the journey by water his army would have been landed at City Point stripped of its supplies and the greater part of its wagon transportation. which must necessarily have been leit behind, and so weeks would have been lost before his command could have been put in trim again for active move ments. The moment McClellan set out for Fortress Monroe his army was for all practical purposes "put out of the fight.' Its use ana service to tne country were virtually annihilated for the next ten eventful, perilous days. General Pope was left single-handed to hold back Lee's legions as best he might. It doubtful if the country has ever fully realized the peril which now hung over it. It was a period when time was count ed by hours, and when the fate of the national capital and probably of the na tion itself was balanced in the events of a moment. General Pope's force had been reduced by incessant marching ana righting to scarcely more than 40, 000 effectives. Owing to the Drecarious ness of his communications his troops were but scantily supplied with provisions ,and by the unremitting exactions of duty, both night and day, together with all sorts of exposure and privation, were put to the severest test of their energy, en durance and fortitude. It was a com plete realization of the old veteran's declaration. when you didn't fight you were put on guard. And when you came off you went on picket. To the fighting, picketing and guarding must be added the daily and nightly marching mane necessary by the en emy's steady movement northward and incessant changes ot posmon. Each army endeavoring to feel the other's lines and detect its purpose, the skirmish firing scarcely knew any intermission and the batteries on either side of the Rappahannock were forever pounding away at each other. Throughout the 21st and 22d the en emy's forces kept on shifting toward the right, his moving columns being fre quently in plain view on the hills skirt ing the west bank of the river. At the same time a strong rebel force confront ed Pope at Rappahannock Station, on his extreme left, ready to follow ud the earliest abandonment of his position on that flank. Evidently the situation was becoming critical. On the evening of the 22d (at 6:30) General Pope telegraph ed from Rappahannock Station to Washington : Major General Halleck : Everything indi cates .-leai ly to me that the enemy's move ment will be upon Warrenton bjr way of Sulphur Kiirlnus. If I could know with anything like certainty by what time to ex pect, troops mat are starting irom Alexan dria, I could act more understaniiinaly. I hve not heard of the arrival of any of the lorces from Frederl.-ksburg at the fords be low, though I have withdrawn nearly the wh-.le of Reno's forces from KelH 's ford. I cannot move against Sulphur Kpiings just ow wnoouL in. rear to tne heavy force in front o: me, and having my com munication with the forces comin up Uie Rappahannock intercepted, and most like ly the railroad destroyed. I think it alto gether well to bring Franklin's force to Alexandria. Lee made his headquarters at Culpepper last night. He has the whole of his army in front of me. Its numbers you can estimate a- well as myself. As soon as bis plans are fully developed I shall be ready to act. John Pope, Major General. Three hours later (q:i?d. m.l PoDe telegraphed again : General HMlleck : Reoorts from nr forces near Sulphur Springs just in. Ene my was crossing the river to-div at Snlnhnr Springs, and on the road from Warrenton to sperry vine, tie is still in heavy force at Rappahannock f.-rd and above, and my rear is entirely exbosed if I move tow.r.is Sulphur Springs or Warrenion. I must do one of two things either tall ba.-k and meet Heintzei man behind Cedar Run, or cros- the R .ppahannock with my whole force and assail the enemy V flank and rear.

General-in-Chief. General Pope thereupon hazardously determined to mass his entire force, re cross the Rappahannock by the bridges and fords at Rappahannock Station and K.elly s f ord below, and fall furiously with his entire command on the flank and rear of the enemy. The necessary orders were at once given and the move ment was to take place on the .following morning, isut during the night a heavy rain set in wliich caused a rise of six or ight feet in the river, sweeping away all the bridges and destroying the fords. When morning dawned the contemplated movement was found impracticable, but the same rise in the river which defeated it fortunately raised a-neir barrier to the advance of the enemy, atoning in some degree for the continued failure of the expected re-enforcements. During the same night, (of the 22d), Gen. J. E. B. Stuart with 1 ,500 rebel caval ry and two guns, having passed by way of Waterloo Bridge and Warrenton, sur prised General Pope's headquarters train at Catlett's Station, in the furious rain and intense darkness, destroying a few wagons and endeavoring to burn the railroad bridge over Cedar Run, but be ing defeated in that design by the heavy rain then falling. - At the time of this raid Pope's entire army trains were parked at Catlett's and were guarded by not less than 1,500 infantry and five companies of cavalry. The gross neg ligence of this guard in allowing itself to be surprised was shameful in the ex treme, but the fact that such a raid, by a force so small, was possible, shows how much exposed at this time were Pope's communications and how pressing the need that McClellan's columns should be hastened forward. Believing the rise in the river would. for the time being, cover his left, Pope now determined to fall in full strength upon that part of the enemy's force which had crossed the river on his right and interposed between him and War renton. By ten o clock on the morning of the 23d the entire army was moving in execution 01 this new design. Gen eral Sigel, supported by Reno and Banks, was directed to march upon Sul phur Springs, attack whatever opposing force he might encounter andpush along the river to Waterloo bridge. McDow ell's Corps, augmented by the Pennsyl vania reserves under deneral Keynolds, moved upon Warrenton, whither Gener al Pope directed his own course, and which was occupied the ensuing night without resistance. Sigel did not get along quite so smoothly. Milroy's bri gade, as usual, leading his advance, came upon the enemy late in the afternoon in the vicinity of Great Run. A sharp action followed, in the course of which the enemy was driven across Great Run but succeeded in destroying the bridge over which he passed. Next morning (the 24th) Sigel crossed Great Run and occupied Sulphur Springs under a heavy fire from the batteries which the enemy had established all along the right bank of the Rappahannock. In the atternoon sigel was directed to push on to Waterloo bridge which he did, MUroy s brigade, leading, arriving there late in the afternoon. During the ensuing night (of the 24th) our army was concentrated m the neighborhood of Warrenton as follows : Sigel's corps and Buford's cavalry near the Rappa hannock at Waterloo bridge ; Banks' corps immediately behind Sigel's; Reno's at Sulphur Springs ; Reynolds' division at Warrenton ; Ricketts' four miles east of Waterloo on the Warrenton road, and Kings' between Sulphur Springs and Warrenton. The forces of the enemy were strewn up and down the river from Rappahannock Station to Waterloo bridge, his center and main body resting opposite Sulphur Springs. Along this line the two armies had for four days kept up, chiefly with artillery and skirmishers, an almost continuous engagement. At times the fighting be came severe, and in a brisk affair of Sigel's at Freeman s Ford Brigadier Gen eral Bohlen had been killed. A large fiart of the troops were almost constant y under fire and all were held momently ready for a general engagement. The Erolonged unrest, fighting and fatigue ad told heavily on the troops, and Sigel's command was now reduced to scarcely 9,000 effectives ; Banks' to 5,000 ; McDowell's, including Reynolds' Reserves, to 15,500; and Reno's to 7, 000. The cavalry, having gone through thirty days' unintermittent picketing and scouting, numDerea not over 4,000, making Pope's aggregate force now in hand not over 40,000 effectives. Con fronting these was the veteran army which had beaten back McClellan from Mechanicsville to Harrison's Landing, and which, strong in its prestige and elated with its success, now numbered probably not less than 90,000 men. Halleck had promised on the 21st to make Pope strong enough within forty eight hours to hold the line of the Rap UjrA Jr-- li-Hfto pahannock. It was now the 24th and that promise remained unfulfilled. Rey nolds' division, scarcely large enough to repair Pope's losses, was the only re-enforcement he had yet received. Never theless Pope still clung to the line of the river and as yet had thwarted all at tempts to pass it. But during the 24th our Signal Corps, from its stations on the high points along the Rappahannock, observed a mysterious departure from the head of Lee's column. A large detachment of the enemy, comprising thirty-six regi ments of infantry with the usual propor tion of artillery and cavalry, was seen moving off to the northward, then in clining to the east in the direction of Salem. For hours the signals reported the movements ot this strange detach ment, until at length it disappeared be yond the farthest range of vision. What did it mean ? When General Pope, believing the enemy to be turning his right, suddenly reversed his purpose and moved his en tire army toward that flank, he had evi dently expected to encounter serious re sistance. In this he was mainly disap pointed. I he hostile force which had passed the Rappahannock seemed scarcely more than a feint and was easi ly compelled to recross the river. And now that the enemy's flanking move ment if seriously intended had been thwarted, what was the purpose of this new expedition r General Banks, watching it through the eyes of his signal officer, reported to Pope as follows (Aug. 25, 1 1:25 a. m.) : It seems apparent that the enemy Is threatening, or moving upon the valley of the Shenandoah, via. Front Royal, witn de signs upon the Potomarj possibly beyond. And so Pope, at Warrenton Junction, rather impatiently and curtly dispatched to Sigel (Aug. 24, 9:30) : You will force the passage of the river at Waterloo bridge to-morrow morning at daylight, and see what is in front of yon. T do not believe there is any enemy in force there, but do believe thai the whole of their army has marched to the west and northwest. 1 am not satisfied either with your reports or your operations of to-dny, aud expect to hear to morrow early something more satisfactory concerning the enemy. At the same hour Pope dispatched to McDowell : I believe thai the whole force of the enemy has marched for the Shenandoah valley, by way of Luray and Front Royal. The column which has marched to-day towards Gaine' Cr. -ss-Roads has turned north, and when last seen was passing under the east base of Buck Mountain, towards Salem and Rectortown. I desire you as earl as possible in the moru- iuk, noiaing tteynoias in reserve, at tv ar renton or vicinity, to make areconnoisance with your whole corp-. and a-certain what is beyond the river at Sulphur Springs. These reconnoisances developed the enemy's main force still in front of Waterloo and Sulphur Springs, as Gen Sigel had truthfully reported. In his belief that Lee's whole force had march ed for the Shenandoah valley, General Pope was therefore grossly mistaken. But how about the northward-moving detachment i Where did that go t We shall see. The reader will bear in mind that at the date named, (Aug. 10,1 Gen. Lee hd his headquarters at Go.dousvilie, as the cap tur. d lt-fersnow d; that General Pope still held the line of the Rapiiau;and that Gen eral McClellan was engaged lu putting his army on shipboar-i at Harrison s Landing, twenty miles below Richmond.

Si.vty-two years ago this Spring Dela ware City was surveyed on its present site then a dense wilderness. The ori ginal design was to locate the town east of "Whetstone River." For some un explained reason that plan was abandon ed. Late in February, or early in March, 1808 Hon. Henry Baldwin, of Pittsburgh, and Moses Byxbe, Sr., the original pro prietors of the soil, laid off the town on its present site. The streets running north and south commencing at the east, were named respectively, Henry, Union, Sandusky, Franklin, Washington, and Liberty. The first and last named were the boundaries of the town proper on the east and west. The streets running east and west were North, Winter, William, Abraham, (now Spring St.), Tammany, (now Hill), and South, now called Third Street. The first and last named of these streets were the northern and southern boundaries of the town, respectively. Each of the streets were "four poles" in width except Sandusky, William and Abraham, which were "six poles" wide. That portion of the city included within the above named boundaries was divided into one hundred and eighty-six lots, commencing at the south east corner of North and Liberty streets, and numbering by tiers, first east and then west, (omitting the tier on ei ther side of Delaware Run), until the whole were numbered. The lots thus designated contained "seventy-seven and one-half acres, be the same more or less." Those not numbered in the cen tral tiers, between William and Abraham streets, lying on either side of Delaware Run, were "reserved for future disposal of for the benefit of the town as the pro prietors may think proper hereafter." The entire square bounded by iNortn, Franklin, Winter and Sandusky streets, was reserved for a "burial place and other religious purposes." The block bounded north by Delaware Run, west by Franklin street, south by Abraham (now Spring) street, and on the east by Sandusky, on the south-east corner of which Evans & Carnahan's Carriage Manufactory now stands, was "a public square intended for public buildings." The square lying on either side of South (now Third) street, and between Sandusky and Franklin streets, was "the ground for a parade and other public uses." William street inclined to the north from Washington westward, and follow ed the north bank of Delaware Run across the Central Union School House lot, instead of crossing said run at Lib erty street as at present. The western terminus of Winter street was at Frank lin, and the eastern at Henry street. Around the plat of the town thus de scribed, were laid off forty-seven out-lots, containing each from one to seventeen acres. The proprietors "personally ap neared before Arthur O'Harra, a Justice of the Peace in and for the county of Franklin and State of Ohio, on the 9th day of March, 1808," and attested by oath that they were the founders of Del aware and on the nth of the same month, the "plat and explanations" of said town were recorded, in "Book D, page 400," by Adam Hozack, Recorder of Franklin County. In the same month the Commissioners chosen bv authority of the General As sembly to locate the county-seats of Delaware, Knox and Licking, chose Delaware as the "scat of government" of Delaware county. The contest for this honor was between Berkshire and the favored locality. Amusing incidents are recited of the inducements offered to these Commissioners to secure their pref erence in making a choice. Possibly a valuable bonus, but more probably the liberal donations of land for public purposes made Delaware acceptable in their choice. The first brick house in Delaware was built in the fall of 1808, by Rev. Jacob Drake, a Baptist clergyman. It stood on Winter street, near where the resi dence of Judge Williams now stands. Mrs. Drake laid the inside walls. stood on Tammany street, (now Hill) at j law, for the care of so die orphan, the head of Franklin street. "In those may draw from the State Treasury an days" :was somewhat difficult to get a amount Pcr capita iox the care of such criminal sentenced to jail, and in some I orphans authorized by this act, but noth cases harder to secure a culprit. On one ing shall be drawn on account of any or occasion special efforts were made to re-1 phans in county infirmaries. The first .nil was built of logs, ana tain the incarcerated. At night he was secured by unusual precautions. At daybreak in the morning the prisoner was found dressed in his suit of red, (a British uniform probably,) sitting on the peak of the roof of the jail, and crow ing, thus exhibiting "his indifference to restraints as well as his. indisposition to escape. C. Mortimer Janes. THE PRESIDENT'S HOSE LIFE. From Grace Greenwood's Correspondence with the New Yo.k Tribune. . It is surprising to observe how few marks of weariness or heavy care the face of President Grant presents, after more than a year of burdensome official responsibility and worriment of, to him, unpr?cedented confinement and labor. Still fresh-looking, comfortable, quiet, self-possessed, strong of will and of nerve is he, a man who keeps his own counsel, and "a multitude of counsel ors, who can keep silent amid the "eternal blathering,' interviewing and inquisition of the talkingest and asking est Capital in the world. Yet no man is pleasanter, kinder, or gentler in private lile, than President Orant. 1 think ought to be known, for it is a good thing to know that the domestic life of the President of the United States is singularly happy and beautiful a noble example for American homes. I have this from the best authority from friends who have ot late been guests at the White House, and who, day after day. have been witnesses of the harmony and loving-kindness of its inmates, un spoiled by prosperity, flattery, fame, and power. 1 hat White House stands hke a light house, surged about by a sea of hungry office-seeking, and more hungry curiosity but what privacy they can se cure is doubly sweet to that merry and affectionate family circle, who find noth ing better in their exalted . position, in State dinners, balls, and receptions, than the dear old love that united them m their home on the Western prairies, and which they wisely brought along with them, as their chief household god. No one can deny to the President and his wife rare propriety and evenness of man ner, alike without a touch of arrogance or superciliousness. Under their raar- velously changed condition of life re main yet the real man and the real woman marvelously unchanged. This is a difficult topic to treat of just here. where genuine old-fashioned hero-wor ship gives way to sycophantic subserv iency or blind party animosity, and where honest, respectful loyalty toward rulers and magistrates, "and all having authority over us" is "an exploded idea. HOW TO SOLVE THE TEMPER ANCE PROBLEM We extract the following from an ar ticle contributed by Horace Greeley to the New York Independent : The peril of Prohibition is that too many regard and treat it as though it were intended to supplant, not supple ment, voluntary efforts. Having re solved for and carried a Prohibitory law, too many regard that as rendering fur ther effort on their part superfluous. So, laying their heads contentedly on the statute, they fall asleep ; and awake after a while, to find the act a nullity and the Liquor Traffic more prevalent and more destructive than ever before. Hence. I am imnelled tn reo-arrl with favor the principle which would enable each locality to license or prohibit the Liquor iraltic as a majority of its legal voters shall decide. I would prefer to take the question by counties, and I would not object to its decision by each city and township for itself. I would prefer to have the question resubmitted annually say, at the State election the decision to be operative throughout the year ensuing. This would bring the matter home to thousands who now drink often to excess without having once earnestly considered the right or wrong of so doing. I would like often to commend the question of Indulgence or Abstinence to the consideration and decision of every voter. I would like to make every one who tacitly upholds the Liquor Iramc fully conscious that he does so. There are thousands who are pillars of the temple of Bacchus who would shrink from admitting the tact, even to themselves. I could wish also to make the advo cates of Total Abstinence realize that their duty is but half discharged by their personal abstinence from strong drink. 1 would have them vote as they leel, and then act as they will have voted. If two thirds of the voters in a township shall vote to have no more grog-shops therein, they will inevitably feel impelled to sec ond their vote by acts. They will pro ceed to enforce the laws which they have pronounced righteous, the penalties they have declared just and beneficent. The vote against license will be public notice to rumsellers to quit, and to Temperance men that, should the traffic be persisted in, it is their duty to enforce the laws which forbid it. Solon being asked if his code was the best possible, responded that it was the best that his people would bear. Jesus clearly implies that Moses respected a kindred limitation. I purpose to be ad monished and instructed by his trans cendent wisdom. THE SOLDIERS' ORPHANS' LAW. HOME The following is a brief, but carefully written synopsis of the provisions of the law. It provides that the Governor shall ap point a board of seven managers to serve without compensation, expenses paid, who shall meet first on the call of the Governor, and organize by choosing a President and Secretary, and a Treasur er for each home established Treasu rers to give bond in the sum of $50,000 each; that the board shall at once take charge of the buildings and property of White Sulphur Springs, except so much as may be necessary to accomodate the Girl's Reform School, and open a Sol diers' Orphans' Home, at an expense for repairs and equipments not exceeding 513,000; that when the board ascertain that such buildings are not sufficient to accommodate comfortably and well all the children to be cared for, they may accept a donation of not less than 100 acres of suitable land, with buildings and equipments, to accommodate 250 or phans, and open and establish a home thereon; that the board may make all contracts necessary to the carrying on of tne homes, and all rules and regulations for the government thereof, and accept all contributions and hold in trust all donations therefor; that the children un der 16 years of age of deceased and per manently disabled and indigent soldiers, without the means of support and educa tion, and when there is room, other or phan indigent children, residing in Ohio, shall be received into the homes ; that the board shall appoint a Superintendent and matron, and all necessary teachers and assistants for each home the salary of Superintendent not to exceed $1,000 ; that all expenses and chprges authorized by the act and attested by the President and Secretary shall be paid on the war rant of the Auditor of State, but the ex pense Ar ri in each home shall not exceed 1 50 lor the first 100, nor $120 for any in addition ; that any institution now or hereafter organized according to NO. 4. TARDY JUSTICE. In one of his Washington Letters to the Cincinnati Gazette General Boynton concludes a review of the battle of Chan- cellorsville as follows : The records of the army, then, furnish no ground for the generally received be lief that the conduct of the 1 ith Corps on tne 2d ot May was either cowardly or disgraceful ; nor do they support any reflection even upon the valor or efficien cy of the troops composing that organi zation, it was the vnsfortunc, not the fault, of a large portion of that corps to be placed in a position in which no troops could have fought, and to have been kept there in spite of orders, and of the remonstrances of prominent offi cers. Those regiments, whose situation permitted them to fight, did hold their ground under the most disheartening circumstances, against terrible odds-one against ten against the best soldiers of the Southern army, and the most brill iant of the rebel generals, as long as any other troops would have done. In ad dition to the sting of defeat, they have had to endure the sting of public oblo quy. Many efforts to procure them justice tailed. Applications from division com manders for permission to publish their official reports, and for a Court of In quiry, were both refused by Gen. Hal leck. Perhaps it was to be expected that one who had long been plotting against Hooker, as Halleck had. would refuse such requests, lest they might vindicate Hooker. But this is a subject for a sep arate letter. The 1 ith Corps was sacrificed on the field of battle, and to this time has re mained sacrificed in public opinion. The records do not in any degree justify the condemnation, and the country can not afford to be unjust. Bad, bad enough, was the official murder of the corps at Chancellorsville, but worse, far worse, has been the execution of the living which the public has continued ever since. ABOUT HATS. (Extract from Donn Piatt's Washington jorreponaence.j In the discussion over the San Dom ingo treaty, while Mr. Garrett Davis was asserting the fact that the population of the Island was too degraded tor citizen ship. Senator Nve interrupted by calling his attention very earnestly to tne iact that we had New Jersey, and all things considered, it had proved a success. The senators from that state did not see where the laugh got in. At a dinner party the other night, the same Senator Nye put his new silk tile carelessly upon the sofa. A few minutes after the veteran philosopher Greeley sat down upon and crushed the hat fear- fully. "Damn it. roared Nye, "I could nave told you it wouldn't fit, before you tried it on." Speaking of hats, I am reminded of an anecdote illustrative of the ancient Jerry Black's habits and absence of mind. Coming into his room one night with the papers of an important case, he sat down, put his hat upon the floor, and began studying the case, while reading the papers. Getting excited, he got up, stuffed some tobacco in his mouth, and began walking over the floor, reading at intervals and expectorating all the time. After nearly an hour's exercise of this sort he threw down the brief and clap ped his hat upon his head. As he did so several vellow streams started down his venerable countenance. On investi gation he was disgusted to find that he had mistaken his hat for a spittoon. A.VOTHEE GE9I OP DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATION. From the Morrow County Sentinel. J A very characteristic piece of work has been the attempt of a number of Democrats m our state Legislature to have the proposed home for the soldiers' orphans located at White Sulphur Springs, and in connection with the al ready established reform school for girls. The Democracy fought as long as there was a shadow of hope, against allowing the home to be established at all. But when they found themselves unable to prevent this, they hit upon the happy idea of putting it beside the reform school and bringing the children of the dead soldiers into an atmosphere which under the circumstances, would be pollu tion itself. The reform school for girls is a noble institution m itself, but its work is as far from that of the Orphans' Home as it could possibly be. Ot all the State institutions, that for the reform of dissolute girls demands the most inviolate seclusion from all associations, and it was in view of this fact that it is placed where it now is. The idea of putting a soldiers orphan upon a level with the class of girls that inhabit a reform school and of exposing them to the peril that such an association would engender, is one so peculiarly Democratic that it nat urally received very warm support from that wing of the Legislature. The Methodist Episcopal Church has of late suffered in a remarkable manner from the death or retirement of its lead ing men. At the close ot last year there were nine Bishops of the Methodist Episcopal Church (North), viz: Thomas A. Morris, Edmund S. Janes, Levi Scott, ftlattnew Simpson, Osmon C. Baker, Edward K. Ames, Davis W. Clark, Edward Thom son, and Calvin Kingsley. The last two have recently died. Bishop Morris is unable to attend to any duties, and is gradually sinking into the grave. Bishop lanes is very feeble, and scarcely able to J , . j t.-...... attend to nis uuues. disuujj nwu, through increasing infirmities, is able to do but littleofficial work.Bishop Clark has recently had apoplectic attacks, leaving the A-ork largely to Bishops Janes, Simp son, and Ames. The death of Bishop Kingsley, and the failing health of others renders it probable that an extra session of the General Conference will soon be called, which, if done, will be the first time in the history of the M. E. Church that such meeting has been held. The Discipline provides for this emer gency in Part 11., Chap, I., Sec, 1, and is as follows : The General Conference shall meet on the 1st day of May, in the year of our Lord 1812, in the City of New York, and thenceforward on the 1st day of May, once in four years perpetually, in such place or places as shall be fixed on by the General Conference from time to time.but the General Superintcndents.or a majority of them, by or with the advice of two-thirds of all the Annua Confer ences, or if there be no General Superin tendents, two-thirds of the Annual Con ferences shall have power to call an ex ra session of the General Conference a any time, to be constituted in the usual " sphere arc about 70 Annual Confer ences in the Church, and it will require two-thirds of them to call the extra sess ion. During the delivery of a lecture by Mrs. Dr. Mary Walker, in Kansas a few days ago, a precocious youth in the audience cried out, "Are you the Mary that had a little lamb ?" "No !" was the ready reply. "But your mother had a little jackass !" Those California Democrats who pro pose to resist nogro suffrage with "phy sical force" ought to be put in straight jackets. They are crazy. There are about a million men in these States who would like nothing better than to make a trip to the Pacific coast at government expense. Ohio State Journal. JJI.YOll HESTIO.V.
