DELAWARE, OHIO, FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1870. THE RAPPAHANNOCK: CAMPAIGN AND THE BATTLE OF GROVE. TON. The mysterious column was Stone wall Jackson's. Shot like an arrow from Lee's extended line it swept northward as if destined, as General Pope at the time believed, for Front Roval and the Shenandoah, but really making for widely different destination. At night of the 25th Jackson camped at the little village of Salem, midway between Ma nassas Gap, in the Blue Ridge, and Thpr oughfare Gap in the Ball Run - Monn tains. . Next morningf .narly, turning squarely to the right, he pushed eastward through Thoroughfare Gap to Hay market and Gainesville, and before dark struck the Alexandria Railroad at Bris- tow Station, directly in Popes rear, on the line of his communications. So swift and unexpected had been this daring movement that two trains of cars going eastward from Warrenton arrived at Bristow just in time to fall an easy prey- to the enemy. Jackson's position, though perilous, now gave him every opportunity for mis chief, and he proceeded to improve it to the utmost. Without a moment's delay he started a detachment down the rail road and broke it again at Kettle Run, only six miles east of Warrenton Junc tion. At the same instant another de tachment under Stuart moved up the railroad with intent to seize Manassas Junction, where Pope had established a sort of supply depot, containing at this time about two million dollars worth of army stores. One of our trains which had barely escaped capture at Bristow, dashed up the road in advance of Stuart, and passing the Junction at full speed, rushed into a southern bound train load ed with soldiers, which was standing on the track at the Rull Run bridge, demol ishing several cars, killing three soldiers and wounding several. Stuart came on as rapidly as he could considering the weariness of his men, who had been marching all day, and the darkness of the night. Before midnight (Aug. 26th) he reached the Junction and. strange to say, completely surprised its feeble gar rison, which consisted of the nth New York battery and four or five companies of infantry. The fruits of this capture were 8 guns, 300 prisoners, 175 horses, 10 locomotives, 7 loaded trains and a vast quantity of provisions, clothinsr. and all kinds of quartermasters', hospital and ordnance stores. At Bull Run bridge, four miles east of Manassas, was Col. Scammon with the 1 1 th and 1 2th Ohio regiments, of Gen. Cox's division, recently from West Vir ginia. Learning from a few of our men who had escaped capture, of the surprise and rout at Manassas. Scammon pushed his little force immediately for that place and attacked Stuart at daylight (Ausr. 27th), but was repulsed and driven back to Bull Run bridge. Here he attempted to make a stand, but by noon was driven off again and retreated down the rail road, leaving Stuart entire master of the situation. The rebel cavalry now went raiding at will and pursuing the line of railroad, broke it upas far east as Burke's Station, within ten or fifteen miles of Alexandria. In the meantime Brisr. Gen. Geo. W. Taylor, with a New Jersey brigade of Franklin's division, havinsr been sent forward from Alexandria, pushed for Manassas hoping to restore our lost for tunes. But Jackson was fully prepared for this, and having leisurely brought up his main body from Bristow to Manassas, easily drove off Taylor, who lost a leg in the encounter. So much for the enemy's supposed de parture for Front Royal and the Shenan doah ! Within forty-eight hours from the time his movement had been first ob served, Jackson had swept clear around Pope's right, fallen upon his communi cations directly in rear and within twenty-five miles of his main body, and had broken up the railroad from Bristow eastward to the very precincts of Alex andria and Washington. v here, meanwhile, was the much- promised and long-looked for Army of the Potomac ? On that arm5', supposed to be hastening forward to re-enforce him. Pope had mainly relied for the pro tection of his rear. As early as the 21st Halleck had assured him that within 4.8 hours be should have troops enough to hold the line of the Rappahannock. On the 24th Col. Haupt, the Railroad Su perintendent at Alexandria, had sent word that 30,000 men would be sent for ward that afternoon or the next morn ing. Had these promises and assur ances been carried into effect, it is easy to see that Jackson's raid would have been at least fatal to himself if not im possible. As early asthe 22d, Pope had directed General Sturgis, commanding at Alexandria, to see personally that strong detachments were posted along the rail road from Manassas Junction to Cat lett's. With thirty or forty thousand veterans from the Army of the Potomac moving at various points along the rail road to the front, Pope reasonably sup- posea tnat ne had little occasion, in any event, to be anxious for his communica tions. But his confidence was misplaced. On the 25th, Heintzelman's corps reported to him at Warrenton Junction, and on the 20th i-itz John Porter s at Bealton. These two corps numbered in the aggre gate only 18,000 men. Franklin's corps and Sumner's, together with the divisions of Cox and Sturgis, had reached Alex andria on the 25th and were expected to push to the front immediately. . Depend ing upon their arrival. Pope (on the 25th) directed one of the strongest divisions to take post at Manassas and hold that point, at the same time requesting Gen eral Halleck to push Franklin with all speed to Gainesville. Had these dispo sitions been made Jackson would at least have been intercepted and his raid thwarted. But, after the two corps above named neintzeiman s ana Porter s Pope received no further assistance from the Army of the Potomac. The division ot Reynolds, already mentioned, joined him on the 23d. This and the forces of Hemtzelman and Porter, making- an ag gregate of 20,500 men, constituted the only re-enforcements Pope received in this campaign from AfcClellan. They were. indeed, the only part t the 91,000 vet eran troops which embarked at Harri son's Landing that took any part in the campaign whatever, bo tar as the rest of McClellan's army is concerned it might as well have remained on the peninsula, for all the practical service it rendered. The condition of Pope's command, after the accessions juit named, we give in his own language : From the 18th of August nntll the morn ing of the 27tn the troops under my com mand had been oontlnuour-ly marching and fighting night and day, and dutlug the wtiote or mat time mere was scarcely an Interval of au hour without the roar of ar tillery. Tne men had had but little sleep, were greatly worn down with fatigue, had had little time to get proper food or to eat it, had been eugaged in ooiistant battles and skirmishes, and had performed ser vices, laborious, dangerous and excessive, beyond any previous experience in this country. As was to be expected, under such circumstances, the numbers of the army under my command had been greatly re duced by death, by wouuds, by sickness and by fatigue, so that on the morning of the Z7th of August 1 estimated m whole effective force (and I think the estimate was large) as iollows: Bigel's corps, tf.OOii; Banks' corps. 6.000: McDowell's corns. In fl UUlOV 1UV cluding Reynolds' division, 15,600: Reno's eorDB fuooi Bb,,ut i8vU)0 7,uou ; the corps of Helnlselman and freshest by far, ln that aimy). our cavalry numbered. ,.11 iihttat. .iumi a ""mug in an or,ouu men. . ..... I , ' - . - ' l.f "ere completely broken down, aud tneie were not 600 men. all told I capable ol doing such service as should be expected fro.u oavalry. The corps of Heintzelmau had reach, d Warrenton Junc tion, but without wagons, without artillery. and with only forty rounds of ammunition 10 the mau. and without even horses for the general and field officers. The corps of sorter nao aiso reacneo warrenton junc tion, with a very small supply of pr-.vis- ns ana but rorty rouuus ot ammunition loreacn man. Such was the complete fulfillment of General Halleck's promises and of Mc Clellan's performances. Such was the force with which Pope was now left, not to hold the Rappahannock, for that was no longer possible, but to cover Wash ington and close in a pitched battle with Lee's triumphant and far out-numbering army. Franklin, who had -been confidently expected to reach Gainesville on the af ternoon of the 26th, did not budge from Alexandria, r ltty thousand troops re mained there in "masterly" inactivity, leaving the entire line of the railroad from Manassas eastward, exposed to Jackson's foray. To Centreville, from Alexandria, is but a good day's march. Had franklin even reached that point on the 26th, or had Cox and Sturgis been as far west as Bull Run on that day. Manassas, at least, would have been se cure. Jackson might possibly still have struck the railroad at Bealton, but our supplies, the want of which was Frank lin's only apology for net moving, would have been saved. To wait for supplies at Alexandria when there was an abun dance at Manassas, the exact point where the troops were needed, seems like the extreme of folly. The supplies captured by Jackson, and which frank lin should have arrived in time to pro tect, would have been amply sufficient tor ail present necessities ot our troops, while the railroad, which the prompt ad vance of the forces at Alexandria would have kept open, could have brought for- wara m any quantity wnatever was need ed for future operations. The disastrous consequences ot franklin s singular, if we may not say criminal, failure to move, we have already in part seen. The ex cuses or pretexts given for it. we pass for tne present. During the night of the 25th Pope, not yet advised of Jackson's whereabouts and despairing of the re-enforcements necessary to maintain his position, de termined to abandon the line of the Rap pahannock. On the 26th, therefore, Sigel's corps was withdrawn from Water loo and our entire army, excepting neintzeiman s corps, wnicn remained at Warrenton Junction, and Porter's not yet arrived from Bealton, was concen trated in the neighborhood of Warren ton. Pope s object now was to head off any attempt on the part of Lee to pass the Bull Run Mountains and move on Washington. But during the afternoon of the 26th he began to discover that what he proposed to prevent was already 111 pd.ll autoinpiisiicu. fl 3:20 p. m., having discovered something wrong with his communications eastward, he for warded, through a staff officer, the fol lowing order to General Heintzelman : The Major General commanding the Army of Y iginla directs me to re quest that you put a regiment !) on a train of ears and send it down Immediately to Manassas, to ascertain what has occurred, repair the telegraph wires, and protect the railroad there until further orders. At midnight (Aug. 26) he instructed General McDowell as follows : Our communications have been Inter rupted by the enemy1 cavalry near Manassas. Whether his whoie force, or the larger part of it, has gone round. Is a question we must settle instantly, and no portion of his force must march opposite to us to-night without out knowing lu 1 telegraphed you an hour ago what dispositions 1 bad made, suppos ing the advance through Thoroughfare Uap to be a column of not more than ten or fif teen thousand men. If his whole force, or the larger part of it, ha gone, we must know it at oncv. The tr.rops here have no artillery, and if the main forces of the en emy are still opposite to you, you must send forward to Greenwich to be there to-morrow evening wUh thetwo batteries of artil lery, or thiee if you en get them, to meet Kearney. We must tov at a very early hour in the morning, so as to determine our plans. These two dispatches give in brief General Pope's information of the ene my's movements and purposes up to midnight of the 26th. A cavalry de tachment which he had sent out on the morning of that day to reconnoitre to wards Thoroughfare Gap, had made him no report. In fact, up to the hour that Jackson struck the railroad, Pope seems to have been almost in the dark and quite deceived as to the former's move ments. Believing the greater part of McClellan's forces were now pushing to the front to join him, Pope appears to have assumed that an infantry raid in his rear was too hazardous to be under taken an assumption, by the way, not at all unreasonable had its foundations been real. Indeed, as it was, Jackson had made a venture no less dangerous than daring. He had placed Pope's army between himself and Lee and put his own in imminent jeopardy of being en veloped and overwhelmed by superior forces. Within twenty-four hours, the narrow gateway through which he had passed the Bull Run Mountains might be effectually closed against him, bar ring his retreat, while within the same length of time Pope might close upon him from the west, and McClellan with Franklin and Sumner from the east. Should Jackson ever be permitted to get back to Lee or to escape at all from the forces that now environed him, it must be only through the inexcusable in activity or want of cooperation of the Federal commanders. We shall see how far these elements came to the aid of an enemy, whose sudden success had involved him as suddenly in commen surate peril. .3 GENERAL HOWARD. From Donn Piatt's Washington Corres pondence. A committee is engaged in the inves tigation of the conduct of General How ard. The Hon. Fernando Wood is af flicted with a spasm of virtue, for which he is to be congratulated, and not only prefers charges, but gives himself up to their prosecution. General Howard, from his earliest life to the present moment, has held the con fidence of his associates, and friends and enemies have united in pronouncing him the soul of honor. He has made him self obnoxious to many by his peculiar political views, and to a few through his religious belief ; and it is not to be won dered at that sooner or later an attempt would be made to limit his usefulness and blacken his fair name. And, under the action of nervous temperament and the promptings of a kind heart, he may have done some things that, in their ir regularity, open the door to his foes. In the battles of this life, the pure-hearted and impulsive enter the arena almost un armed in their very goodness. False friends and smooth enemies find in such an easy prey. As Sterne says, when a lamb is to be sacrificed it is easy to find, in the nearest hedge, sticks for the offer ing. While Howard is one of the purest and best men in public life, he is con fiding and unsuspecting as a child, and as such has been surrounded by base men, who, under the guise of friendship, and the cloak of religion, have sought to use and abuse him. I have no question but that this inquiry will fetch out any quantity of wrong, for which Howard will be held responsible. Be that as it may, there is one caution the press and the public may as well re ceive, and that is, that the prosecution must end before the defense can be heard, and the insidious and cunning enemies will be busy telegraphing and writing to the world all that can be said to General Howard's injury. While I am satisfied that he will come out of the trial justified in every act, I know the manner in which men are condemned in advance, and public opinion manufac tured before the truth can be heard. California is said to be overrun tradeless, moneyless young men. with For the Gazette. MIMK FACTS ABOUT ALCOHOL. In discussing this subject it shall be my aim to state and illustrate such facts and principles as shall have a tendency to induce every man, woman and child. capable of appreciating truth, to exert the whole weight of their influence in tavor of the temperance cause. The fact is now established beyond the possibility of doubt that alcohol is a poison, as certain, deadly and destruc tive as any other poison. It may be more slow in its effects, but it is not the less certain. It is estimated that 200,000,000 gallons of ardent spirits, worth, at one dollar per gallon, $200,000,000, were consumed in the United States in 1869. .That sum of money, if spread out in bank notes laid end to end, would reach around this entire globe, and 846 miles over.! Or. if in silver dollars, placed edge to edge, it would equal the earth's diameter; and 94 miles over. It is a sum which would support from eight to nine hundred thousand young men in preaching the gospel, and would more than supply, in three years, a copy of the Bible to every tamny on tne giote. . Alcohol consists, chemically, ot car. bon, oxygen and hydrogen, in the fol lowing proportion : Carbon, 52 parts, oxygen 34, and hydrogen, 14. The ad dition of water forms the various proof spirits. It can be generated m no way but by icrmentatien, no skill ot art hav ing yet been able to combine the above elements in such proportion or relation as to produce alcohol. The loss, direct and indirect, resulting trom tne use 01 ardent spirits in the United States, in the year i860, is esti mated, at $ 300,000,000. 1 he use 01 alcohol tends to corrupt the morals, enfeeble the intellect, pro duce indolence and wretchedness, short en life, and spread a pall of grief over families and nations. It is ascertained to be the source of nine-tenths of all the crime and pauperism in the land. It fills our streets with drunkards, our pris ons with poor criminals, and supplies the gallows with victims. To the ac count of this destroyer are to be annual ly charged 200,000 criminals, 500,000 paupers, and 1800 insane, all maae such by the use of ardent spirits. To these must be added 90,000 of our country men who die annually from the effects of using alcohol, and who are brought mereDy to dishonored graves. And then, to complete the account, remem ber the widows and the fatherless who rise up every year to condemn this as the destroyer of their peace, the cause of their destitution and bereavement, and we have some conception of the amount of misery which this great evil annually brings upon the land. John A. Caldwell. MUSCULAR FORCE OF THE HU MAN HEART. A curious investigation of the muscular force of the human heart, and the com parative amount of work it performs, has recently been made and published by Mr. Haughton, an eminent English mathematician. Starting with the pos tulates first, that three ounces of blood are driven from each ventricle at each stroke of the heart; second, that the hy drostatic pressure in the left ventricle and aorta, against which the blood is forced out, amounts to a column of blood nearly ten feet in vertical height ; third, that the muscular force of the left ventricle in contracting, bears to that of the right ventricle in proportion of thirteen to five he proceeds to show that the daily work of the left ventricle is equivalent to over eighty-nine tons lilted one loot, and that of the right to over thirty-four tons ; or, for both together, to over one hundred and twenty-three tons lifted through one foot. The enormous amount of force denoted by the preceding result our author goes on to illustrate by show ing, first, that if the daily work of a la boring man be equivalent to three hun dred and fifty-four tons lifted through one foot, the heart does over one-third as much in twenty-four hours; therefore, three old women, doing nothing what ever, actually accomplish more work in one day than the strongest average la boring man ; second, that the laboring force of the heart is greater than that expended in propelling an eight-oared boat through the water during the se verest boat race ; third, that if the heart expended its entire force in lifting its own weight vertically, it would raise this weight 20,000 feet in one hour, or twenty times as far as an active pedestrian can climb in vertical altitude in the same time ; fourth, that the greatest distance through which a locomotive has been able to lift itself up an incline has been 2700 feet in an hour, and that this equals only one-eighth part of the energy of the human heart. In fine, our author thinks he has succeeded in proving that the human heart is the most wonderful piece of mechanism known, since he has shown that its energy is equal to one third of the total daily force of all the muscles of a strong man ; that it ex ceeds by one third the labor of the mus cles in a boat-race, estimated by equal weights of muscle ; that it is equivalent to twenty times the force used in climb ing vertically ; and finally, that it has eight times the force of the most power ful engine invented by the art of man. Harper for May. HINTS TO WEARERS GLOVES OF KID It is not generally known, or does not appear to be generally known, even by those who wear kids almost exclusively, that the durability and set of the articles depend very much upon how they are put on the first time. Two pairs may be taken from one box, of exactly the same cut and quality, and by giving different treatment when first putting the hands into them, one pair will be made to set much better, and to wear double, or nearly that length of time, longer than the other. When purchasing gloves, people are usually in too much of a hur ry; they carelessly put them on, and let them go in that way then, thinking to do the work more completely at another time. When this is the case, a person is sure to meet with disappointment, for, as the glove is made to ht the hand the first time it is worn, so it will fit ever af ter, and no amount of effort will make a satisfactory change. Never allow a stretcher to be used, for the gloves will not be likely to fit as well for it. All of the expansion should be made by the hands. If the kids are so small as to require the aid of a stretcher, they should not be purchased, as they will prove too small for durability, comfort or wear. When selecting gloves, choose them with fingers to correspond with your own in length, take time to put them on, working in the fingers first, until ends meet ends, then put in the thumb, and smooth them down till they are made to fit nicely. A glove that fits well will usually wear well, at least will wear bet ter than one of the same kind that does not fit well. When the ends of the fin gers do not come down right, or when they are so long as to form wrinkles up on the sides of the fingers, they will chafe out easily; where the stretcher has to be used to make the fingers large enough, the body part will be so small as to cramp the hand so that it cannot be shut without bursting the seams of the kids. Some recommend putting new kid gloves into a damp cloth before they are put on, and allowing them to remain until moistened. With this treatment they can be put on much eas ier than otherwise, and will fit very nice ly until they get dry, but on second wearing there will be an unnatural harshness about them, wrinkling in spots and they will not set so perfectly , as at first.

Thousands of persons throughout the United States, who have gazed in won der upon the colossal proportions of Van Amburg's famous elephant, Hannibal, on exhibition in this country forty-six years, the largest of the species ever brought to this country or Europe, will be interested in the final disposal of his bones, which, we understand, are to be added to the zoological curiosities of New York Central Park. Hannibal died at Centreville, Aid., in about the ninetieth year of his age, in May, 1865. The complete skeleton of an elephant being very difhcult to ob tain, the bones are correspondingly val uable, and great precautions were, consequence, taken to preserve those 01 Hannibal, and under the charge ot Al bert Townsend, the huge carcass was dragged to a field about a mile from the village, and a large and strong mauso leum of masonry erected over it. There it was suffered to remain until the flesh had wasted away sufficiently to permit of the removal of the bones. So great was the mass that not until a few davs since was it thought advisable to open the tomb. To Mr. Hyatt Frost, director of the menagerie, is due the conception of the idea of making the unique and valuable present to the city ot JNew York, with in a few weeks the massive bones will have been cleansed, transported to the Central Park, and set up in the zoolog ical department, there to remain an ob ject of interest to the visitors until time causes them to crumble to dust. THE LEGISLATIVE SPREE. From a Washington Letter. If the honorable Solons of the Ohio Legislature knew of the contempt ex pressed, here, over their acceptance of a free ride, to Washington, by the Balti more and Ohio Railroad, the said hon orable Solons aforesaid would hesitate accepting, or at least blush while doing so. I hat a corporation, such as this, reaching through our State, and continu ally at the doors of the Legislature solici ting privileges, should be able to buy up n a dead-head ride, the entire concern, is not complimentary to the great State of Ohio. How honorable members of the Senate or House may feel in the presence of conductors and brakesmen who must look down upon them with contempt, as so many cattle, I can not pretend to tell. How they ought to feel in the presence of their betrayed consti tuents, 1 may know. These heavy corporations, following in the spirit ot the day, have combined together for their own profit. They have sought to insure this profit to their several properties whether the business of the country enjoys such or not. They say : We cannot run our roads at a loss, and so they augment charges on produce. that is raised at a loss, but while the far mer and merchant suffer the railway cor porations grow in wealth. By ingenious combinations between through lines, that have been permitted to consolidate until they reach from tide water to the far interior, all competition is destroyed, and if any springs up the loss that comes to" them is made up again by overcharges on way-freight. These abuses can be remedied only through State legislation, and now the only guardians the people have are bought up like so many sheep. Every member accepting the ride ought to be marked as a dead-head and rebuked at the polls. A PEN PICTURE OF THE PRESI. DENT. BY GRACE GREENWOOD. Though so quiet and undemonstrative. President Grant's manner is not cold. Though somewhat set and quite reticent in expression, his tace is neither hard, nor forbidding. Though his eyes of grayish blue certainly do not radiate geniality and good fellowship, I have always seen in them a still and steady friendliness impartial, almost undis- criminating, but singularly unforgetful. His look into your eyes on a first meet ing, is clear, direct but not piercing. He "makes no deep scrutiny' into your character but you feel that he reads you well, as far as he goes, and you may be sure he will know you the next time. His words are few, as has occasionally been remarked, and his address simplicity itself. Some one once called it a cour ageous simplicity. I don't think the term suited to him; it implies too much consciousness, f ranklm s appearance at the Court of Versailles, was "cour ageous simplicity." Jefferson's ride on horseback trom the w hue House to the Capitol was dramatic simolicitv. But Grant gives no thought to effect makes no parade of not making a parade. In walking, he carries his head that won derfully compact, evenly modeled head slightly forward ; and he has in public places an absent yet acquiescent air, as of one being taken somewhere rather than going of his own volition which is usually the case, as he is the most oblig ing, informal and unmagistenal of Chief Magistrates. 1 o me there is something strange in the ordinary passivity of such a will as his. He seems not only a modest, but a diffident man. Great heroes before him have been so. This diffidence may often be taken for indif ference and insensibility. I think I have seen the sure marks of it in his in tercourse with children, for whom he really has the fondness characteristic of Mr. Lincoln. He has no small-talk tor small interviewers, but he is not above listening to them, and I have noticed that they never account him hard or cold. They have perhaps the instinct to understand and the grace to interpret that riddle for statesmen, reporters and fine ladies the face of President Grant. Let us remember that God gives to one soul a genius to think and to aspire; to another to do and to be. There is the inspired prophet brain, which says, "I see I believe," and there is the imperial, compulsive brain, which says. 1 am 1 will ! Who snail say wnicn is the greater ? Each by a divine law, ancient as time, gravitates to its fit period and place. Because the night of our tribulation is past, do not let us cease to thank God for the strong hand which upheld and guided us through its heav iest darkness ; above all, let us not quar rel with that hand, if it takes not kindly to Paris kids, or if the grip it learned up on the sword-hilt, sometimes makes slip pery, self-seeking, political fingers tingle. PAY OF FEMALE CLKRKS AT WASHINGTON. From Donn Piatt's Correspondence. This matter of compensation is a burn ing shame to our Government. While women are forced over the country to do the same work with men for half the compensation, we ought then to have here an example of justice. I was given an illustration yesterday. Colonel Fish er, Commissioner of Patents, had a bu reau where three men one head clerk and two assistants were employed to conduct the business. The clerk re signed, and one of the assistants was taken sick. Colonel Fisher sent for Mrs. Cleveland and requested her to take the position. She declined at first, and had at last to be ordered to the place. She reorganized the same rooms, dispensed with all help, and is now getting more work from the same clerks. And this place, which before cost the Government 3,800, is now carried on by this ener getic, clear-headed woman for $900. It is a sin ana a siiainc sut-ii hhjjusi- tion should be nracticed. I am triad to add my evidence to the volume already on hand, of the efficien- cy ot the temaie cierksnips m washtng- ton, ana nope some aay to see the num. ' ber increased and the pay made just. NO. 5. NOVEL REMEDY FOR SWEARINO. A California paper commenting upon the great temptations to the sin of pro fanity in the country says : "An in telligent lady of our acquaintance, whose little boy was beginning this strange talk, anxious to explain to her child the horror of profanity, hit upon the novel process ot washing out his mouth with soap-suds whenever he swore. It was an effectual cure. The boy understood his mother's sense of the corruption of an oath and the taste of suds, which to gether produced the desired result." DELUSIONS OF GIRLHOOD. The following is a bit of Fanny Fern's experience : I used to believe in school friendship. That delusion ended when Arabella Triplet told mutual friends that I was years and years her senior, knowing what a terrible fib she told. I used to suffer pangs of anger because of woes of beggars. Since that I have seen one unstrap his leg in an area, and run off gaily on two legs of his own. An other threw a loaf of bread in the gutter, and I saw a third who had all day been yelling, "Please assist the blind," care fully examining his collection of ten cent stamps by the light of a friendly apple woman's candle. I used to put the greatest faith in lov ers vows. Now, I do not believe a man means anything he says to a woman, unless it is something disagreeable. 1 used to believe in laithiul servants. Since then I have hired girls from intel ligence offices, and lost all my handker chiefs but one. I used to believe in beauty. Since then I have seen a bewitching belle take off half her hair, all her teeth, the best of her complexion, two pounds of cotton batting and a corset. HOW HE WHIPPED HIM. A young John Phoenix tells how it was as follows : "I'll tell you how it was. You see, Bill and me went down to the wharf to fish; and I felt in my pocket and found my knife, and it was gone, and I said, 'Bill, you stole my knife;' and he said I was another, and I said go there yourself; and he said it was no such thing; and I said he was a liar, and I could whip him, if I was bigger'n him ; and he said he would lock me to sleep, mother, and I said he was a bigger one; and he said I never had the measles ; and I said for him to fork over that knife or I'de fix him for a tombstone on Lau rel Hill; and he said my grandmother was no gentleman: and I said he darsn t take it up, but he did, you bet, then I got up ?gain, and said he was too much afraid to do it again, and he tried to, but he didn't; and I grabbed him and threw him down on the top of me like several bricks ; and I tell you it beat all and so did he, and my little dog got up behind liill and bit him, and liill kicked at the dog, and the dog ran, and I ran after the dog to fetch him back; and I didn't catch him till I got clear home, and I'll whip him more yet. Is my eye black ? At Cuthbert, Georgia, early on the morning of the 30th ult., during the prev alence of a violent storm of rain, Dr. Smith stepped to a secretary for a book which he wished to show to Rev. James Armstrong, his guest of the previous night, the subject of which they had been discussing. While in the act of taking down the book, a bolt struck the roof of the house, struck the Doctor through the head, broke his neck, and otherwise burned, blackened and disfig ured his person badly. He was killed at once. Rev. Mr. Armstrong, a few feet distant, was prostrated and severely stunned, while Mrs. Smith, wife of the Doctor, and a little daughter, were knock ed down, severely burned, blackened and blistered. The remaining two chil dren, with their grandmother, were in the breakfast room some little distance off, and escaped personal injury, though feeling the shock very sensibly. The house, a new frame one-story dwelling, just completed, instantaneously caught hre and was rapidly consumed with all its contents. Mr. Armstrong, recover ing from the shock, with difficulty saved the surviving members of the family, as well as Dr. Smith's body, from the flames. Mr. Armstrong was present for the purpose of officiating in the ap proaching marriage ceremony which was to have occurred the same morning be- j tween the mother of Mrs. Smith and a gentleman of the county. The showing of Commissioner Delano that the receipts from taxes under the present Admistration are much larger than for a corresponding period under the preceding one, is used by Demo cratic papers as proof that there has been an increase instead of reduction in the rate of taxation. On the contrary, the large aggregate in crease is the result of the thorough and economical collection of the taxes at rates very much reduced from what they were. In this State alone, for in stance, the increased revenue from to bacco during eight months of Mr. Dela no's administration, over a correspond ing period of a former year, was si 1,437 776 65.

It is said that these fish are very fond of human beings for food, and usually swallow their victuals whole. While the five feet sharks demur to six feet men as a matter of convenience, they are espec ially fond of three and a half and four feet boys, on account of both conveni ence of size and delicacy of fiber. Ju venile bathers should be exceedingly cautious until the tiger sharks go to sea. The friends of equal rights in Brook lyn had a grand time at the Academy of Music on Monday evening, nth. An immense audience was convened to re joice over the Fifteenth Amendment, and black people and white mingled their shouts of rejoicing and sang togeth er their hymn of praise. Senator Revels was the great attraction ; and his speech as well as those of Messrs. Bcecher and Garnett, gave great satisfaction.. The interest of the meeting was at the culmi nating point when Mr. Bcecher. at the close of his speech, addressing Mr. Rev els, and suiting the action to the word, said : "And now, sir, I tender you the right hand of fellowship." The audience seeing the two men standing together with hands clasped, went wild with en thusiasm. Turning to the audience, as he unclosed his hand. Mr. Beecher said: "Fellow-citizens, I introduce to you an American citizen, a senator of the United States of America Mr. Revels." The scene was exciting and grand, and many cheeks were wet with tears of joy. Jn defndent. The New York World represented that Gen.
