The truth is sheha. been over rated morally and mentally. Her "Cncle Tom"' was the mushroom of a party exigency, the body of whi.-h Calvin E.

This is keeping alive the -pirit of war with terrible earnest- Who can doubt any more that our Yankee cousins are particularly after the money. A Northern paper, in nl llusion to the Gettysburg latttle, and theerection of commemorative monu ments on the ground, says: "The pictorial description of the battle will be something new under the sun, and while affordine to posterity a vivid inception of the magnitude of the re tiellion and of the momentous issues ,1. landing upon this bloody field, it will be an enduring first class adver tisement to the Gettysburg Springs as . summer resort." The Yankees have always hail the monopoly, so far as we are concerned, lliey have furn ished no little share of our food, and .ur clothing, cradles, conins ana tomr .tones.

Perfection is the exception not the rule. Ex-President Davis. The Xorth Rrithh Mail, one of the leading organs of Scottish public opinion, aud one of the principal newspapers of the great city of Glas gow, in an article upon Kx-President Pavis, who arrived in that city on the ;th inst. and has since been traveling in Scotland, sums up the character of the great Mississippian in this way: "The astonishing vigor of the Con federate organization, the brilliancy of their campaigns, and the heroism and talent of their military loaders, are household words even among the bitterest enemies of the cause which they upheld. Amidst the exploits of Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson and other famous leaders, who for so long kept the Union trom touching Confed erate soil, and whw; camp fires at one time blazed almost in sight of the Capitol, the guiding spirit of the whole, whose military genius was on a par with his administrative talent-, whose tact enabled him to choose the right men, and support effectively from the Cabinet the stubborn resist ance of his generals in the front, was almost lost sight of in Europe. But though he breathed a spirit of defiance to the last, and upheld the flag of n. surrender, he had the sagacity to fore see that President Lincoln's emanci i... n, in t.riM l.itii..tion. beimr in har mony with the general opinion of T J I 1 . . - .1 U 1. 1 . . . . llianKUKl, nau given it lHH mow 10 the Confederacy from whit'b its recov ery was doubtful. When Sherman had cut the South in two and Grant was ciosing on Richmond, the Confed erate f'resmeni set up me iic;iuiuui ters of the South at Panviile, and after the ttnal eoliapse and surrender of Lee, led a fugitive life accompanied bv a few friends. Tlfe assassination of President Lincoln precipitated his capture, for in their fury the North er.argeif the President and other mem ber" ot the Confederate Government with being accomplices in the crime, and offered large rewards for their ar rfiat. Dayis' final seizure was owing to his devotion to hi wife and chil dren: for, learning that she was in (jangi-r from military marauders, he U'aatenoit at all menaw feer reaeni (though aware. tluU her encampment was watched by Northern spies) and was captured the next morning In her tent hy a party of Federal cavalry; ami closely imprisoned in Fort Mon uu n-n-.Hnement was loni: and rlgoroua. and for smp time none of his fknillv or frieniU were pemitftuj to have access to him.

The rain, the longed f.r Summer rain, In coming down at hwt. Over the city, the wood, the plain v iniAtv veil is cast. The children of men with dust dinined evs. And a prayer tn every heart, Look fearful up to the clonrl draped skies test the gracious signs depart. The rain, the pleasant Summer rain. Comes pattering from the eaves. The grateful music rings again From the dust besprinkled leaves. O children of men, from hleep arise To worship the loving hand, That sendeth the life stream from the skies To heal the fainting land. The rain, the cooling Summer rain. How it brightens the crisp brown grass, How the odors of blossom and ripened grain. Sweep by as the sweet drops pass. The cattle upon a thousand hills On freshened pastures fed. Are drinking content the stream that litis The dried up streamlet's bed. The rain, the grateful Summer rjin. It falleih alike on all. On the child of want in hts aching pain. On the dweller in splendor's hall: On him whose heart and hands are pure, On the wretch with the mark of Cain; And lordly man, and reptile mean Bless xod for the Summer rain. The blessed rain of Heavenly grace Is falling on human souls, And the stain of the mire of earth's wild chase Away on the bright tide rolls. The heart that in sin lay scor. hed and de.ul To a higher life has birth. Whence ii:wers of love and holiness shed v, .-ot perftlinn o'er the earth. Sum Mauv's Scilou!.. The Telegraph in Peru.

It is not generally known, I believe, that Pope Puis the Ninth was, in his youth, prevented from entering the mini m Honor ol lie v lccruy oi n- in consequence of his being sub- JjBei to attcn S PPMJMy: from Simgaglia to lion.e, uuq erju-n u the iricsthood in lsli, being then in his twenty -seventh year. The infir mity to which he was subject was as great a bar to Ids, advancement in this prolession aa in the military and it is -aid that his admission was granted by Pius the Seventh only on the con dition that when he celebrated the mass he should lie assisted by another priest.

A flPW daj-s ago we announced that this distinguished gentleman had la'en advanceil to the ilignity of (Queen's Counsellor, at the English bar. l'om: menting upon the fiict an English pafiersays: "A little paragraph in the leading papers has just carried buck the memory to the great Ameri can struggle, and recallid some of those personal interests which have, since its close, been eclipsed by the grave political issues that formed the legacy ot the war. Mr. J. P. 15enja miu. of the Northern Circuit, has been apoiiited by Mr. Justice Han nen, a (jueen's Counsel for the county PaJatine of Lancaster. Mr. Benjamin, of the Northern Circuit, may not be known under that description to any considerable section of the public; but Mr. Benjamin, of tiie Siuthern Con federacy, was tolerably well before the eyes of this country during the civil strife in the United States. He was throughout those four years of anxious labor and desperate conflict the right hand man of Mr. Jefferson Davis, in the very difficult task of administer ing the' political aflSiirs of the Confed eracy. He shared the fortunes of the President, when, after the fall of Richmond, he made that now histori cal attempt at escape; and, exempted from the protracted legal torture in flicted upon his chief though ex cepted from the amnesties which per mitted other prominent Southerners so easily to re-enter the ranks of civil life he has manfully devoted himself, in an exile that is now voluntary, to the pursuits for which his brilliant ca reer in his own country bad so excel lently prepared Mm. We may be well assured that Mr. Benjamin's ex perience of busings, his breaking into hard labor, and training in that wide observation and sympathy which the statesman has the best opportunity of equaling, will not make him the l.-ss worthy the distinction just bestowed upon him. N'or have we the slightest fear that the County Palatine of Lan caster will in any unpleasant manner remind Mr. Benjamin that the val iant struggle of the South against the stern unreason of the North made its people endure some weary and wast ing years of idleness and dependence. Lancashire surtered without rancor; it is, perhaps, a ijuestion whether her sympathies were not at least evenly divided between the combatants. In any case the invincible fairness of Englishmen will secure Mr. Benjamin against whatever prejudice his re markable ability may fail to disarm, or the memory of his resolute and fearless striving against destiny, dur ing the four years ot an unparalleled struggle, may not transmute into ad miration anl esteem. How Lager Bier is Made. Lager Bier is a fermeted liquor, made trom malted grain barley prin cipally. Hops and other bitter flavor ing matters are added to improve their taste and impart their peculiar properties, tonic or otherwise, to any liqaor. laager bier, properly made, If analyzed, will give about the follow ing result: Water, !H.80; malt, I.C5; alcohol, -i.4 1 ; carbonicacid.ii.il. The lager bier brewing sea-sin begins about the close of i.-tober and ends about the lirstof April. In the manufacture of bier the barley, wheat or other grain is select id with much care. It is first subjected, fo the process tailed malting. Which' is effected in large cisterns, 'with a depth of some six or seven inches abpvC the surface of the grain. When the grain has become fully soaked usually absorbing forty or filty-tive pouuds to the hundred weight of barley jt U taken out, al lowed loiiraiu for sin mfM hours, and then spread upon the malt floor, where the next process of the opera tion is termed couching, tying m beds of twelve or sixteen inches iu depth, the grain soon becomes nioi-t through chemical changes, and gerin inatiou commences. When this has gone sufficiently far, which is known by the grain becom ing white and crumbly like meal, the process is Changisl and germination immediately arrestist by the grain be ing moid on tile Boor of I malt kiln, and the temncrature 'raised gradually from ! to 1'fo degrees, (juring the op eration of dryirig'. the' malt fieing ire queiHly atirred. Then comes the brewing process, which, like the tirst stage, embraces several different ope rations. The malt is tirst ground or crushed to a course powder, w hich is afterward shaken into large mash tubs containing wat-T at a temperature..! PHI degrees. More water is added, and the temperature carefully raised sev eral degrees higher, after which the i illusion is drawn off.

Greek Life in the Heroic Age. The following is from .Mr. Iliad- stone's recent work, "Juventu- Mun di:" The youth of high birth, not then s widely as now separated In. in the low, is educated under tutors in reverence for his parents and in de sire to emulate their tame; he shares in manly and in graceful spirts, ae- Miiires the use of arms, hardens him self in the pursuit, then of all others the most dispensable, the hunting dowr. of wild liensts; ga'ns the knowledge of inediciiH ; probably al so of the lvre. 8onietims, with many-sided intelligence, he even sets himself to learn how to build his own house or sb,ip. or luw to drive the plough down the lurrow, as well as fo reap the atanuing corn; ami wneu scarcely a man, he bears anus for liis country or his tribe, takes part iij its government, learns, by direct instruc tion and by practice, how to rule man kind through he use of reasoning and oersuasive uowers in political assem blies, attends and assists in sacrifices to the gods. For all this time he has been in kindly and free relations, not only with his" parents, his family, his equals of his own age, but with the attendants, although they are hut scrls, who have known him from in fancy on his father's domain. Ilis early youth is not solicited into vice by finding sensual excess in vogue, orthe opportunities of it glar ing in his eyes and sounding in his .-ar.

The Japanese in California. The Japanese, who landed two or three months ago at San Francisco, lost as little time as possible. They showed, from the hour of their land ing, that they meant business. They immediately established themselves in a locality previously selected by one of their number, threw off their coats, rolled up their sleeves, and went industriously to work raising tea and mulberry treets. The tea nuts which they planted have nour ished remarkably well, the trees are perfectly thrifty, and the immigrants are already, even with their brief ex perience, s entirely satisfied as to the capacity of the soil anil climate to pro duce their specialities in abundance, that they have written home earnest ly entreating their friends to improve their condition by coming at ouce to this country. Those who have MM them in their new home boar testi mony that the quiet but thoroughly practical manner in which they go to work evinces a sense of the value of time and industry far beyond that manifested by any other people ever known upon this continent.

Spirit in Woman W'e like to wee a woman of spirit and life, for a dull, prosy, supine wo man is a poor affair indeed. And we have no particular objection to sv " the sparks fly " occasionally when something really stirring occurs. We like her joyful and lively; and if she has a little spice of waggery we can put up with it very well nay, we like it all the better. But I cross, sour temper we have no gixxl opinion of; for a woman who can never look pleasant, but who is always fretting and scolding, wifi make an unhappy home for all Within' her house. We would as soon undertake to live i n a nn, barrel of vinegar in a thunder storm as to live tn u house with such a wo man. Solomon was right when he aid " lt is better to live in a corner of a housetop than to dwell in a wide . house with a brawling woman."

Let a woman's words be .-nothing and kind, and everything is happy around her. Her influence wiH be powerful. Others will catch her sweet temper, and all will strive to see who ean be most tike her.

It. .Wilt's. vh. bus nisi r,.rui-M.t j from California, to whichtate he was sent by the Immigrant and I-abor Convention held at Memphis last July, for the purpose of investigating anil reporting upon Chines labor, its adaptability to the wants of the South and the practicability of its cheap in troduction. (ien. Miles i well known to onr citizens as a former distinguished Lawyer and merchant of this city. Having performed a gallant and con spicuous part in the late war, he has, since its dose, settled upon hLs large cotton estate iu the Yazoo bottom, and has Iwen one of our most successful cultivators. Ileputed by the Conven tion to proceed on the mission relative to Chinese labor, he left Memphis on the -".th of July by the Pacific Rail road, arrived safely at San Francisco, devoted one month to traveling, ex amining the country, and observing and studying the people and their institutions, ami returned in month and twenty days from the 1 of his departure. At the time of interview with lien. Miles, it his seventh day from San FrancLsco. He is now at Vicksburg, and will promptly lurnih the public with a .!.! !euins on tiie subject of his mission. In advance of this report we can state that the General confirmed the opinions of ail intelligent and impartial persons who have visited California, as to the great value, su periority aud cheapness of Chinese labor. An active, sagacious and in quisitive gentleman, he made a thorough and minute culmination into tlie manners, habits and customs of the Chinese. He visited the vari ons establishments in which they are employtd, the woolen factories, the machine shops, the founderies, the farms, the mines and on railroads; in .every department of industry and manufactures; ami ne tounu in every relation and position they were re garded as the cheapest, most reliable and trustworthy laborers in the State. As house servauts they are esteemed s incomparably superior to all others i n their cleanliness, docility, and fidelity. Their labor can be obtained at about one-third the rate paid for other labor. It Ls for this reason they are persecuted and oppresswi by cer tain classes, in California. These classes, embracing a large number of voters, political aspirants and party to their interest to : lenders, rind it i an act nt Congress. 1 he contractors. who have been extensively engage! in this business, and are willing to embark on a still larger -cale, obtain tueir emigrants from the interior and agricultural districts of China, and so fur from employing any violence or deceit to inilu'-e them to emigrate, are annoyed by the unfortunates of these, who beg to go. There are few, in deed, ol the laboring class who would not leave that country to come to America if their passage w ere ecured. They are willing to bind theuidetves, and the contractors will guarantee the fulfillment of their pledge to work at a rate, to lie agreed on, until they reim burse all the advances made for their transportation. Iu fine the whole system of the Chinese emigration is arranged in strict ciii-i-t'-n.-y with acts of Congress w hich have been missed in regard to Lurooean con- I tracts. The right of these parries to Bind thcmselve, and the validity of "sue" contracts 01 14 v; r; 10 renqmre r. t es affording them the means ot tran spurtatiou, has never been questioned, fj far froiii nsjuiring any mccia laws to proti-ct them from fraud and im position in pen contracts, Gen. Miles assures us that the Chinese are more than ordinarily shrewd in making a bargain and taking care of themselves. All they ask is protection when they come into our country, and the enjoy ment of the rights which have been promised to them under the BurlfngJ Trfoughtrre mission and purposes A -en.
