"A widow cf three husbands"-who i& cer tainly qualified by experience to treat the in; teresting theme,-discourses as follows of wives, in th last Southern Literary Messen. ger : , The poets, from Solomon to Saxe-as far as 1 am acquainted with them-have sung the praises of good wives. ? They have been' appraised ?D soirg at a price above rubies^ crowns of gold and oilier first- cl as ? valuables, and compared to au infinite variety of objects in heaven and in earth, to which they bear no more resemblance than a lively sevvn;g ma chine bears to a dead snail. The truth is. that good wives don't belong to poetry. They are plain, quiet, household facts. Their sphere lies within the narrow circle uf thc homestead, nut among the stars, and The duties, not The muses] are thc sources ot" their inspiration. Fur inspired they are. and with something better than day-dreams; whilst their realm as they govern it, is right'.v eoi:sidered, far more glori?os than the'iinB?y"1 region in uhich poets delight to quiver iLeir erratic winga. A good wife is a womuu of business. She proceeds upon a system having for i?s end and purpose thc protection of her husband's in? tere-ts, his comfort, his happiness, and the se oureiuent to herscli of hts hearty, undivided luve, if all married women acted iipon such appian, there would be fewer matrimonial jealousies, di sertior.s and divorces. Believe me, thc best counterpoise to ull outside temp tations is a pleasant hume, and such a home -illuminated by the presence of a loving wife.-wilt sometimes draw a wayward hus band fret:. t!jc haunts pf dissipation, andmake n mun of him, when bven his best friends have said "Ephriata is joined to his idols, ?ct him alone." 1 need not describe a good wife, nor the attractive a;pcct which tho little domes tic empire, Home, assumes under her man agement. We all know what an invitation to come i:i and !>o c 'lufurtabl-, the family par lor seems lo present, rm opening tho door. Order, cleanliness, and tidiness arc the laws ot' her bonsefao'ld, and somehow or other the contrives to have the-mobeyed without scold, ing. Uer vniee isrncver heard in tint virago key. She does ?ill things mildly. A kindly whisper is enough IWr ber children-, wiu) arc never-ragged, dirty;or rebellious. Even the"! oniy WiUch-dog looks as if he guarded thc hou.se fur pure love, ami run lor the cold vic tuals. But alas, these domestic paradises arc like watering places in the desert, thinly scat tered. Il mm were better, there would he more .such homes, and if thtre tcere inore, men would bo belter. There ar* cttatu.es in broadcloth who cannot appreciate anything that is domestic, and thereare beings in crin oline who du r oLsei-m to understand the mean ing of the word. Of these two classes comes much matrimonial misery. Why cither should marry I cannot conceive. Probably tho old serpent, whose first exploit on earth was to set its first couple hy thc ears, puts it into their heads. 1 m./ht say a good deal about bad and shiftless husbands. Heaven knows, I Lave seen enough of them in all their mis erable vairictuif I But to draw their pictures d:.es not como within the scope of aiy present purpose, it is of wires, and to wives, only, that 1 wish to speak. And now, having dwelt at some lergth on the merits of the good ones, I ?ill give a few specimens from the black sheep of thc flock, ll'among my brief sketches, any married lady should taney she detects ber own likeness, all that she has to do is to turn over a new leaf, nud the resemblance will cease. The slip shotJ-icifc is a terrible cye-sore and heart sore too-to the man of methodical habits. Oncmifrtt suppose, il* BUfih things wire supposable in a matter-of-lact agc, that the malignant fairy. Disorder, lins presided at her birth and endowed her child with her own habits, as a sponsorial parent. The mot to of the slip-shod wife is, " a placo for noth ing, and nothing in its place." Her home is "chaos come again." Everything in the house seems to have been either deposited there by a gale, or washed in hy a freshet, or dropped in a thunder-shower. Not that there are any tokens of a rush of water, savo such as might be indicated by the confusion. On thc contrary, all tho rooms seem to be suffer ing from a dearth of that fluid-and of soap. The children's faces plainly show I hat they arc not amphibious-being entirely of the earth, earthly. The cats, falling in with the family habits, seem to have neglected to wash and towel themselves with their paws, ns tho felines of cleaner households are accustomed to do, and the frowsy dog throws out a cloud of dust whenever he shakos himself. But tho mistress of the dwelling, who shall describe her I Open at tho back, pinned together in front, down at the heel, and the heel unclean ly, in her all the dirt and disorganization of the domicile appear to be personified. A head of frowsy hair, spiked all over with soil ed curl-papers, forms the ornamental capital of this pillar of ?he domestic temple. Surely, surely the most inveterate man-hater that ever lectured on woman's wrongc, might afford to pity the husband of a slip shod wife. The street yarn spinner is another variety of the neglectful wife, who is a Fad''horn in jhe sidc of her cara sposa. She is only at home iu rainy weather, and her house hAs just such a cold, gloomy, deserted air about it, as ono might fancy appertains tn a Khan in tho Eas tern wilderness that "hev?r bas a chance to .make a cheerful echo or catch a living shad ow, except when a caravan passes that way. I have an idea that a home left to take < of itself, unwarmed by a smile from its r tress, from daylight to dask, grows dimi and moro dismal in its aspect day. by t Never did I enter the domicile of .a st yard-spinner to find her, as usual, not?t ho without getting the blues. There is'soi thing in tbe very atmosphere of a bouse, ..wholly to the care of servants, that chills marrow of my bones. And then, what n , chief the street yarn spinner does. How .tittle-tattles away rr-putalions ; how she tai gocd names with her scandal-freighted broa what cruel falso surmises and mendacious mors, that truth seldom overtakes, 6hc set gallop in the community. What trouble i brings upon her unhappy husband, who saddled with all the evil consequences of ] heartless gossip. If this article should e< meet?the eyes of any of the street yarn-sp .nmg species, may it rcacn their hearts. An and amen 1 The termagant, perhaps is worst of i With ber there can be no peace, or hope peace. Her " voice is still for war." A what a voice it is. It is as the shriek o: dozen greaseless axles. There is no let io to it. Pitched in alto, it stays there. It g< through you like a knife, and not only s your teeth on edge, but makes your bair sta on end. It transpierces the servants throu the ears, and reduces them to a state of uer diocy. It turns the milk of human kin im sour in the gentlest breast, as surely a thunder-storm turns eral milk to bonneycli ber. But tho subject is too repulsive, don't like to dwell upon it. Heaven keep good men and true from intermarrying wi one of those moral' ra-p3, called tcrmagan vixens or viragos. A plague go with them as indeod it does-go where they wili. Thcrcare other varieti a of the black she of the wife-fold, bat I havp no space todw upon them herc. There are the fast wi the blow wife, the pert wife, the dismal wi aud several others, whose genius for maki husbands wretched ^d themselves objects dislike, is truly wonderful. But when all t chaff ls winnowed away there is enough oft pure sound wheat of womanhood to make i good men happy. And besides, thonsands incompetent and inconsiderate wives s blessed with warm hearts; and where th? is good material to work upon there is alwa hope of reform. It is only wives witho hearts that are incorrigible, and they are truly exceptions, I hope in the kingdom matrimony, as zoophytes, are in the kingdc of vegetation. .'

'Hie graves of our dead arc not to 1 honored, but they must sleep unmarked an unknown until coming generations redeti the Lud from the thraldom of tyranny. MORE SPITE AND HATRED AGAINST TnK DEA1 Wc copy the above Irom thc Telegraph < yesterday. Robert A. Smith, a young Sco?cl man, resided in Jackson at thc beginning c tho war. He WHS then scarce twenty years c age, but hi.i amiable deportment, his busine? capacity, and integrity and morality, had wo for him the love and esteem of tho whol community. When the "Jackson itiilos company was formed, he was elected captai, and proceeded with it to Pensacola. Soo: after its arrival there/its Colonel died, a:n Capt. Smith, though the youngest captain ii the regiment. 10th Mississippi, was chosen hi ?nooc*>or. This was a rare tribute to bi worth and excellence. His regiment wen with Brugg to tennessee, and in one ?>f tb bailies ibero Colonel Smith was killed wbili gallantly leading ou his teen. Iiis elder brother, James Smith, who bat formerly resided in .Jaekvm.but had returnee to Scotland, determined after thc war io plat* u plain u.id neat memorial <>f ttlTection ^v?-: tho honored gr..ve <>f his boy brother, win Was slecpiig the sleep ?f death in a far of hind. This memorial, in the simps bf t small in.rb'e monument had arrived, and thi S?iTC-wing friend? of the deceased wore oboul to pi tee it i>vet lhe gr. VP, when they were ar rested in their lubur of love by lhe order ol Gen. Ord. When we fust read of it we were filled with indignation, which feeling was 6oori however changed lo that Ol'fijrrowftli regret regret that there was an officer in the United States wearing thc stais of a Major General who could so far forget tho honor of his country and hi* own feelings as a man and a gentleman, as to perpptrato an act so inex pressibly mean and degrading. Is it essentini to tho welfare and glory o? the great uation that poor Bub Smith, tho " bravest of tho brave,'' should s.lccp in an undistinguished grnve ? Is it disloyal to shed a ter over departed gentlemvs and worth? Cul. Robert A. Smith was' General Ord's peer in everything save rank, that, pertained to a soldier and t. gentleman. How different the conduct of Gen. R isccranz, who afier the assault on Corinth, having witnessed tho ex traordinary gallantry of Col. W. P. Bogers, of Texa?, who fell OH the ramparts, caused his body to bo rescued from tbe mass of dead and dying, buried it with the honors of war, and cau.-ed a neat enclosure to bo placed aron ni1 his gra\e. jTere was the in.tg minimi ty of a true and generous soldier who d.iel not think it beneath his dignity, nor inconsistent with his patriotism to do honor to a brnve and fallen foe. Let Gen. OrJ remember the fate of Griffin, who attempted to dishonor tho remains of a brother soldier, the lameBted Johnston. Thc judgment of God overtook him. He too is in his grave, a grave which in after years will be grass growu and forgot ten, while that ol the other will bo garlanded ! with flowers and watered with lhe tears of a generous and grateful posterity--Jackson Clarion. ? ? ? ?-? SEWARD'S ACQUISITIONS.-A correspondent of the New York Times thinks thal Mr. Sew aid's reiterated attempts to get a foothold in the West Indies, is part, of a scheme for the acquisition of all. thc We.;t India Islands as a future home for tbe negroes of our Southern States. Thc great bulk of the inhabitants of Cuba, St. Domingo, Jamaica aud adjacent is lauds are blacks ; and thc.proximity of these negro countries to our Somborn coast, would make it an easy ':hing to bring about the mi gration or deportation of the two or three, millions of negroes located iu tue States of our Southern sea-board. The tropical climate and luxuriant soil of these sunny i.-lcs would suit them exactly, and they would have ? great advantagejin scttliug down among peo ple of their own race and nature. At the j same time, the South would bu glad to get i rid of a dangerous and antngonistifrelement, j and the fear of "negro supremacy" would i pass away from the whole country, or rather I from the Democratic party. We don't be lieve, however, that Mr. Seward ever bad any I Buch idea in his territorial negotiations, either j in Silka or St. Thomas. ?5T A Southorn paper publishes an nccout of a hole on a hillside.

This paper has always maintained that the governments of this country, as well National as State, are white men's governments. Oar fellow-citizens of the Southern States have grievously erred . in rebelling against the es tablished government of the country, and grievously Lave they been punished for their error. It is quite too mueh to add to thc punishment bv subjecting them to the govern ment and political control of the negro race; we protest against it, and wu say that every white man who does not unite in this protest is false to his blood. In vindication of this view we give place to the following letter from an"old Whig, addressed to the late rati fication meeting. He has touched the true note-Me negro is io be protected by law in all his essential rights, but shall not be admitted to the governing class : LETTER F tOM HON. HIRAM KETCUUM. 29 WILLUM STREET, Oct. 29, 1867. Douglas Taylor, Esq., Chairman of the Com mittee of Arrangements, ?cc. : DEAR SIR : I am honored by an invitation of your committee to address the Democracy' of New York at the grand Democratic jubi lee and ratification meeting on the 31st of October instant. I hope that meeting may prove a juoilee of tho whole people of the city of New York, and of all the citizens of other States who may happen to be present in the city at that time. I have read with high gratification tho proceedings of the nominating convention, which the meeting will be asked to ratify:. Tnece proceedings were dignified, intelligent, and highly patriotic. I rejoice io know that they have been published in pamphlet form, and hope that they may have wide circulation throughout the State and the whole country. .The utterances of that body, and the distin guished speakers who addressed it, are wor thy of tho State of Nev? Yoi:k. All good citizens should unite in patting down the party, now having the ascendancy in Congress, which dares to acti outside and re gardless of fundamental lav, embodied law, embodied in the Constitution of the United i States. What bond have we, aa a people, but the Constitution; and what security for liberty for us and our' children can there be when a political party, happening to be in a majority in Congress, shall be alloted to dis pense with the restraints and obligations of the Constitution 1 What right has sacha party to be called a Union party, when it breaks the very bond of Union ? Besides, there is a question of deep interest involved, incidentaily, in the expression of popular opinion to be made at the ensuing I election. Shall the descendants of the Afri I can race among us, recently emerged from a state of bondage, be admitted to the govern I mg class"? I object not to their freedom, to I their edncation, and to their beiug protected in their essential rights of life, liberty, and property ? but to admit them to the govern-' ing class I do object ; for in all past time the negro race have proved themselves unfit to govern Slates or communities. The govern ment of this country, and of all the States of which it is composed, have hitherto been gov ernments of white men ; and in my judg ment, it is better for the preservation of lib erty to all races in this country that theTgov oming class should remain as it wa3 in the time of our fathers. These are views which I should take great pleasure in elucidating and enforcing could I comply with your polite invitation to be pres ent and address I he meeting; but ab"onco hom the city will deny mc the pleasure pf uniting in the preit popular demonstration. I am, very respectfully, your fellow-citizen, HIRAM KETCHUM. GENERAL JOHN S. MOSBY IN THE NEW YORK GOLD ROOM.-The New York Herald, of Wednesday lait says : About noon yesterday a ?strange scene oc curred in the Gold Ro-jm on Broad-street. .Sitting by the side of the Vice Presidcnt, Mr.' Hoy tr wa? a person wearing a grf-y coat, who, it was whispered round, was the ex-rebel chief, ''Jack" Mushy. The brea?ts-of thu loyal brokers bumed with indignation, '.vhiob burst f.-rth in the shape of a note, written hy \ Mr. J. li'. Colgate arni sent to Mr. Hoyt, ask- j in; t?im if-the rebel Mosby was sitting at his side, and if so, protesting against his being there. On receiving thu note and glancing over its cont-His, t?e Vice-President read it aloud a -d theti *a d, " .Gentlemen, nbow me to introduce to you Colom-l Mosby.'' Mosby then arose and was reei iwed with minuled cheers and hisi.c?.- The brokirs of the New Yurie Gold B >ard rere evidently teve'r more divided than on this occasion. While some .advanced to the Colonel to shake him by the hand, others protested against the proceeding by loyally shaking their beadd and gesticula ting their indignation. Anml thc diu and confliction, the following broken sentencei* might have been heard: "No place lor a traitor." " As much right there as anybody else/' " Who have rendered thetneelves in famous by- their rebellious acta ?'? " Colonel Mo-;by was a brave stddier." Good judge of horses." "A better man never lived." " A worse was never hung," ?c. These de lectable and eutenxining exposions of the difference of opinion in which Mr. Mosby was held Ly the brokers present were sudden ly sUeneed by that worthy leaving thc room and the-Vice-President calling a speciaJ. meet ing cf the t?i'?rd, wbeu he desired to know whether or not hu was lo he sustained in in troducing his friends into thc room. Tab leaux! The Vice-Pr?sident was supported by tho majority, who endorsed Lis a-.-tion in introducing from his elevated position, one of his friends (CoK.ncl Mosby, tho PX-gaorilU chief.) to thc loyal brokers of the New York Gold Board. AT a recent ineetiug of the citizens of Laurens District, held ?ir the purpose of re ceiving tho report of their delegntes to thc State Conservative- Convention, tho following resolutions,, offered by Col. John Cuninghai-:, (formerlyol Charleston) were rejt -ted,audthe act iou of the Convention endorsed : Resolved, That the " Address" lie on the table. In the opinion of the white citizens of Laurens District here assembled, the conclu stons at which that address has arrived, to wit : that " tho people (while) of the South aro powerless to avert the impending rom," and that " tho responsibility to posterity and to the world has passed into other hands," are 1 erroneous, and their announcement impolitic. Thora who will make no.further effort, how ever desperate their situal.iou, to do something for their rights and safety, will never be eith er respeeted or assisted by other portions of mankind. Resolved, That the white peoplo of the South-each mau-should now prepare to de fend themselves and their households, and to aid and co operate in any measures of relief which may emanate (rom other quarters or petsons, within the range of white civilization. We expect nothing from and will grant noth ing to the negro race or their assistants. Resolved, That tho issues have now passed beyond Ihe ballot box, andar? now " impend ing'' over our households.

WASHINGTON, November In the Hitase of Representative to-da; Boutweil, second member of the Jud Committee, rose to report the testimon ken by the Committee on Impeaciimen presented the majority report ; the Chai: Mr. Wilson, dissenting. The report wa pared hy Mr. Williams, of Pennsylvania Tho summary of the majority report follows : " In accordance with the testimony mitted and the view of the law herewitt ?ented, the Committee is of the opinioi Andrew Johnson, President of tne ll States, is guilty of high crimes and a meanors, in-that," &c. Jt closes with the following resolutiot Resolved, That Andrew Johnson be petehed for high crimes and misdemea The report was followed by minglec pressions of applause and dis ap proba tior Speaker meantime using his gavel. Mr. Wilson, Chairman of the Comm for himself and Mr. Woodbridge, pn ted the minority report, which conclud follows : We therefore declare that the case b us, presented by the testimony, aud meas by tue law, does not disclose such high er and misdemeanors within the raeani.ig o Constitution as requires the constitution! terposition of the power of the House, an commend the adoption of the following: lution : Resolved, Thv the Judiciary Comm be discharged from the further considers of tho propo-ed impeachment of the Presi of the United Staten, and that tho subjec laid on the table. Mr. Marchuli on behalf of himself and Eldridge, stated that they fully concurre the resolution offered by ytbe Chairman, Wilson, and also concurred entirely with argument regarding the law of the case, the application of the evidence thereto, there were differences on some pointe w! induced him and Ar. Eldridge to suba third repon, which reports were all lait the table. Ordered to be printed and a thc special order foe Wednesday of i week. General Grant's evidence covers three umns, bat the following tells his story : By Mr. Woodbridge. Question-I uni stand your position to be this : That you uot assume to originate or inaug?rate policy, but that when any question came and your opinion was asked as to what' President was going; to do, or had done, gave no opinion ? Answer-That is it exactly, and I prest ed the whole Committee so understood I have always been ? atteutlve to my own ties, and tried not tc interfere with other [ pie's. I was always ready to originate n ter? pertaining to the army, bat 1 never 1 willing to originate malters pertaining to civii government of the United States. WI I was asked my opinion abuut what had b done I was willing to give it. I origina no plan and suggested no plan for civil g emraent. I only gave my views on measi after they had been originated. I simply pre-sed an anxiety that something ehot-?d dono to.give some sort of control down the There were no governments there when war was over, and I wanted to see some g ernments established, and I wanted to sci done quickly, and I did not pr?te,d to i how it should be done, or in what farm. The majority of the Impeachment Co mittee in their report laid great stress on t allrgcd usurpations by th? President of t pardoning aud veto powers, and also as to 1 authority to make removals and appoi mouts, and particularly refer to what th term flagrant violations cf the const, tu tior powers of the Executive in orgauiziog G< eminent? in the Southern States at thc e of tho war, without asking the advice of Cc gress, as they assert, for personal purpos' They refer io the pardoning of an hundr and uinety-lhreo persons in West Virgin deserters from the army during the war, whi they state was'iu behalf of private and inti eared parties, and in order that they mig vote in accordance with thc President'? opi ion-t. The tenor of the Executive offences, throng out tho entire report, cotisiats in ailegi usurpations of the powers above mentio..e The majority assert al6o lhat, by vano official and other declarations, the Preside) has ?ought io obstruct the laws of Cong e for the pacification of the States with parti ular reter?iiee to the constitutional ainew ments appioved by Congress. Thia report is very lengthy, and is aignf by Messrs Boutwell, Williams, Ouurohhil Thomas and Lawrence. A report-was also submitted by Mesar Wilson and Woodbridge, dissenting from tl vbws of the majority, and asserting that thei was no evidence proeuted which demain impeachment, but that they condemned ti President's political views and were willin to censure him. The minority report by Messrs. Marsha and Eldridge, strongly defends -the Presider from the abuse of his political encrait s, an Biserta thai his only fault consists in not hob ?og to the.poiitical views of the party wide elected him tn a.ttfst in Kutjugating the pet plc of the South. This report is exireinel caustic, and harshly abuses some nf tho wii nfisses who restiticd before the Committee In it Gun. Maker, tba Chief of Detectives; i accuhed of perjury, and thc r^pjrt conclude "tho President will be held in respect by hi countrymen when his calumniators' aro pil loricd in the undying scorn and indignaltoi of the American people." Thc points made in thc summing up of th majority report against the President aro no borne out by tho testimony. Pir..t, as to tli< President baviug usurped the powers pf Con gress in organizing governments in thc South ern States. It will be found in General Grau t's tea ti mony that the programme which WPS follow ed out hy the President had beeu Jain dowt by Mr. Lincoln. It hlso appears in Genera Grant's testimony that he was present, by in vitution, at the Cabinet Councils, in whict the restoration of the Southern States was considered, and that while ho affeuted to th? "plan followed by the Administration, he did not offer any suggestion of his own, but wae a silent listener. Thc only active part he .took was iu restraining the President's ardor to have prominent Confederates, like Lee, brought to condign punishment. As to tho pardon of aromiaent Confede rates it appears that mauy of the most promi nent of them were pardoned on the recom mendation of Gen. Grant, Attorney-General Speed, Secretary Stauton, Ac. AB to the trial of the West Virginians, which the report alleges was done in order that they might vote for a Democratic mem ber of Congress, it appears from the evidence that they were only technically deserters they they were not pardoned uutilsomo weeks after thc election, and that the President merely endorsed the application in the usual form, referring it to the Secretary of War, who himself grauted it. "The Committee enquired into the posses sion by the President of certain Tennessee bonds, on the supposition that thc possession of them might have some connection with his release of the property of certain Sooth* ern rail road companies, but it appears that President Johnson had been in possession of these bonds for the last tweive .pears. In reference to the trial o? Eon.

There was an attempt on the part of Ls* fayette C. Baker, Chief of Detectives, to pen UD a story about an imaginary letter. irena President J manson, as then Military Governor of Tennessee, to Jefferson Davis, offering to turn over the State to him, but the Commit tee could have had no tro able in deciding what degree of credit was to be given io it. The tale-foil stil?-born. There is no alienation against the President of his having personally given grouads of of febce. Ashley, of Ohio, who presented the arti cles of impeachment, acknowledges that Le has produced to'tho Committee all the valid evidence in his possession.

NEGRO.VOTIKO IX "FIVE YEARS!"-Iba World, a few days ago, had a more than two column article pointing out the.way in which negroes may be allowed to vote in five years ; whereupon tho Tribune has this remark : " The proposition of the New York World that the blacks of the South should have the right to vote after, a five years' probation, would have been regarded a* ultra radical two years ago. Two years .13 the usual dif ference between a Radical and Conservative." But the editor of the World has not to ad vance two years to reach negro suffrage-he , has rather to go back six years, when he waa clear ahead of the editor of. the Tribune in favor of negro suffrage. Ile is now trying t) keep, in an awkward way, some where in sight of the outer edge ot Democracy, bat ' the negro foot sticks out ridiculously every day or two. He ia a proof that tho 14 Ethio-. pian cannot change his' skin." His polit'cnl antics iu playing the part.of a Democrat, con stantly remind the public of the lamentable failure of the ass in trying to wear the Hon's skin'. Tho a53 was net improved, but the lion was shamefully degraded. Tho man who talks of amalgamating the condition of the black and white races in Jive, or iu fiv>. thousand years, has no more right lo call himself a Democrat than an old skunk ha? to pass himself off for a young fox.
