There is no doubt that nil the leader of the reho!!i n will wiit to .i.--i,-r-ie meas ures to prolong tin i-.i-;- i oi''h Southern Confederacy, ami o ' ii- it independence.

Not for liberty, not for justice. not for ihe red res of intolerable injuries and wrongs. hut to save the necks of the rebel " captains" Iroiu the halter. We do not doubt that ev ery rebel leader now sees the folly of the at tempt to dissever the I'nion, that every one of them regrets the step which has been ta ken. Hut for them there is no return. With he. restoration of the Union would come their swift destruction. No wonder the Fed eral power to them wears a grim and terri ble visage.

I should tell you that I think they are a jolly nice. In proof of this I will only cite one instance of their practical jokes. One of our citizens had a quantity of walnuts laid up in a back chamber, which hav; been growing beautifully less 0r some time. A chance examination of an old cupboard in an ad joining room led to an explanation of this abstraction. One of the shelves contained two pairs of boots, one pair of shoes, a sap-bucket arid various other antiquated domestic lixtures attracted thither by the retiiemeiit of the place. It appeals cer tain belligerent rats in ambush near by recognized the important advantages of the. position and appropriated it as a grand military -torehou.-e. They filled each of the above mentioned articles with walnuts and aptly stowed a large amount besides, to the amount of' more than a bushel in the inter-fiees. They doubtless meant to have a rri'l time over them. Another unusual I'tTair has happened in this town. One of otir townsmen has made hi- vn'emind.
