The Efficacy of l?roomsticks.
" Dbi it eyer^ strike you-not the .broona

If yoa don'-t believe it, just wait awhile- and.
I'll tell you'anower true tale.- Fill your
pipe*, boys, and sit close ; ibe Yankees are
beyond the Rappahannock, and'n ) danger of
an alarm. So' ?ir the fire, and let's be mer
ry thia dark day in spite ot wind and weather.
You all know Slocum. . If you took throj
that chink there yon'll see hi? tong, lank,
limbs stretched before the fire like St, Igna
tins on a gridiron." Ile look* Terr com plaie
ant now, for blew jon I'he's* glad to be "bert*,
aefeirom the "danserons insinuation* of broom

No? .Well; I'll tell yon.. Slocum nasa
wife, and -?-'C-C: u wife-abade of Mrs. Caudle,
protect "tts ! Sabra ay. Slocum ii what you
might call a strong-minded woman, and
strong-limbod too for that matter, for the
handles a broomstick as well ss the rt?xt, and
so Simon can'testify. A taller, more angu
lar, vinegar-faced shrew ts riot to be found,
and Simon not being particularly .brisk was
continually iu . " the old. woman s" way.
Wnenever he, roor devil, entered the house,
sb <. began
'Simm Sic. eitn j don't you ?ce the mat ?
There you go shuffli?' along with your splay
feet, dashin' the mu 1 right and left.' Oo
right etra:pht batk, and wipe them SLOCK
ole?n, or take 'em off. I do wish you was off
pj the war ! Go 'long I say, don't ?jand .
there gapiu,' and Simon was- fain to do as he
was bid. - The chief weapon in thc Lands of
this amiable spouse till she took lo tue broom
stie'< aa a dernier ien>rt. * as-the teflection
which she ever cast with great indelicacy up
on Mr. Slocum i hat 4 heTd never been to the
war.' * You old sueak !' aha would say when
Simon dared lift his feeble vok e in rxpoet:i
lution, don't I kuLW you're as grand a coward
as ever broke the bread you couldn't earn the
salt to ? Don't I know you'd trimble like a

cum did jump a? the frightful exclamation
was uttered in a voice more distinct than
musical ;* ? There it is ! There it i>, ju^t as I
Baid. Ile a'-m ot t jumped out of his skin
then. I do wish they'd conscript you, for rou j
ain't uo.manner -accourt to do Que banda j

Simon Slocum, that ever'I see'd. You might ;
j:ne the army, and let the Yankees sheet at !
jon to save a better man. Get ont of my j

So Slocum would rlope to Save hi* feelings yr
-his bead ! ? . ". '
Bat the time ita1, coming when S.br."iiy'n
authority waa. to be disputed. Sitnou was.
appointed Deputy Clerk of the Court in lieu
of no other oft-ri.ng; ind ribing *udderrly>o
high in his own'eat!mat??h, determined' to
Hake a stand,1 and open Mrs. S's. blinded
eyes to' the fact that he waa one of the 'Lon'.-*
of Creation' and didn't raetn to be henpecked j
any Ipngej".. Woe'* .the- dayl., lt. waa. one
bright Saturday morning ..that. Simon rod? ;
a?o?g from tbe village, -hie oh&grpy trotting.j
meekly aa was big wont, and-came to-this un-}
fortunate conclusion. 'Ktvet Nr? any of Lis !
brethren more mistaken, who, from the days '
pf So^ratesb dared, urge this plea- As Mf:
Slocum .drew near his ' home, sweet home ' j
a vision of bliss - met bis eye-S abri ny, with !
ber skirts gracefully caught np, swabing the ?
.scrubbing-broom back and forthin the front':
.piazza. In other words she was as u'eual- '
scouring, the plague of her. life, she averred, !
bat yet-aa ??'very natural with her contra- (
dietary sex-continually at it- Six days in f
the week did Sabriny Slocum devote , to the ?
Lares and Penates-if those deities are sup
posed to preside over sand, ?oap, and scrub- 1
b?B? brush ; the seventh, all things bj a hm
ry-sknrry finale Saturday night being set
ia order, she laid aside as emphatically a '
u day of '."eat, wherein the brooms and brush
M leant supinely against the wall iu CL nie rs
and behind doora as if tired out with their
perpetual gallopade."
As I said Sabrir.j waa. as usual scouring.
u Now," thought Simon, "the Unlucky, 11
sm so tired and warm, and ? do ?um | could
lie down awhile, and yent ott the new chintz
lounge in thc company-room. I know the
old woman will be wratby if I walk over ber
clean floors, but I'll just (ell her I'm appoint

tak form np like agi-affe with dbe ?gnfc
and dismounted, walked up to the housepret
tjtriuchas Xerxes might baye walked .up
to Greece, supposing Greece tj be a Virago

t.'tnens nihilMrs. Slocum took no notice
of this unprecedented manner of spptoach,

Thus encouraged Simon {laced bis .cacrile
gious foot upon the first ftep, and advanced
firmly to the charge. A? *.? reached th.a top

Courage. Mrs. Slocum p*u<ed Jil??o. H? sting
upou her besom, che turned, and Ckst upon

dignified -and pemiiaive, Sabriny, ..L. am

no objections, vev?-g as how I am a little

saying, he took-.another. step forward in J
paused again. It waa a picture for a paint? r!
There stood Mr. Slocum, and there stood
MrW Slocum-the one an image of hesitating ?
prejinmpiion,-the other of unspeakable aston

years, and (deapera'tcly,) if you "bare'no ob

awhile^' _There, was another pause. Sar

One minute' later and it might be too lat?.
I forever. " You may finish your souring, !

Deluded Slocum ! A rush,-a whiz,-and j'

Col. Earle, of Arkansas.
A few days since, a brief bul .tin from tie
4 seat of war ia Tennessee contained tbe sim
' pie announcement that"Coi; Earle, of thc
Sd Arkansas cavalry, was killed while lead
ing his regiment in a Charge," in the recent
brilliant affair of Yan Dorn and Forrest, near
i Franklin.
.The death of so good, and braye a man?
falling thus gloriously in the arms of victory
in.defence of his country/ calls, even in these
days of great and crowding events, for soroe
thicg more than a passing notice". For
five mouths'of active service, ir duding seve
ral hard fought battles, Col. Samuel G. Earle
and myseif were members of the same bri
gade in Gen. Priced anny; and during that
iime Thad the good fcrtnne to t'?corne w.,-11,
if not entirely, acquainted with him. It is
.thc warm respect, nay,' affectionate admira
tion, inspired "by that acquaintance and as- .
sedation in the trials and hardships of camp
life and the perils of battle,, which inspires .
this Humble tribute to his now glorious mern
ory. .
" Col. Earle wai a native of South Carolina,
and at the time of bis death was about thirty
yen rs of age. His educat:- :: was completed
at Bethany Culb ge, Virginia, an institution j
of learning, presided ovtr by that great and
good man, Alexander "'Campbell. At col-1
rrge ho stood high ia all his classes, and was j i
universally beloved. -Marrying tn South Car- | i
ulina, Col. Earle emigrated to Arkansas, I j
am informed, in 1859, arid refiled near Cam- j
d< II. As a Iawj er and planter he was there I 1
pursuing the even tenor of his way, and liv- 11
ing the life of a useful citiz*n, when the great' i
cst r?volution tbe'world ever saw broke out. j i
'Of courte, he was one of the first to UBsheafh I

In consequence of numerous application!:
made by various persons to the War Depart
ment, it is obvious that [some misconception,
in regard to the instructions of the Secretary
of War in. relation to the impressment of
supplies must exist on the part ol' the people
ur that the agents of the Government have
violated their instructions; tow, then fore,
