'lucre's a 1-Aautiful ??one: on tho slumbrous air That drifts tirough the valley of dreams ; : It comos from a clime where the roses we e, And a tuneful hean and bright brown hair, That wavod in the morning beams. Soft eyes of azure and eyes of brown, And snow-white foreheads are there; A glimmering Cross and a glittering Crown, A thorny bed and a couch of down, Lost hopes and leaders of prayer. A breath of Spring in thc breezy woods, Sweet wafts from the quivering pines Blue violet eyes beneath green hoods, A bubble of brooklets, a scent of buds, Bird warblers and damboring vines. A rosy wreath and dimpled hand, * A ring and a slighted vow Three golden links of a broken band, A tioy track on the snow-white sand, A tear and a Mnless brow. There's a tincture of grief in tho boautiful song That subs on the slumbrous air, And loneliness foltin tho festive throng, Sinks down on the soul as it trembles ulong From a ciime where the roses were. We heard it first at the dawn of day, And ii mingled with matin chimes, Bot yenrs'hare distanced the beautiful lay And its melody fl iweth from far away, > And we call it now Old Times. , ---? ? A Woman's Coni'ession. Froo? t?te Picayune. " A- Few days ago,'.' said Mr.F---, i " intelligence reached us that a Milan banker had absconded with an iihmense amount of money. It was believed that he hndifled to this country and ta 1 ken refuge in New Orleans. A young i Ita lian .girl was thc companion" "of. his ; flight. Together-with-a description of the man was a> miniature of thjs girl. She was very beautiful, and tho inani mate ivory pictured a face so winsome in its youth and.-innocence,- so trustful, so confiding,. that jny heart ached a? L looked at it. . " Months went -by in the fruitless search for the criminal. If here, his precautions were well . token, and Iris concealment effectual. f* One night a report roached the Sta tion'that a-'drowned woman had boen drawn from the liver. She had been dead but a lew hours, it was said, and was- elegantly clad, and young .and boautiful. . " "Why I; coqld.not"divin^at the time, ; l?tt I felt a strange desire": to see this girl.. I mentioned thc fact to Mr. I-, and wc walked together to the river. The body was laid out on the pi er, and the lovely upturned face was magnetic in its intense beauty. A wealth of black wet hair fell back from the broad low forehead, exposing a face rounded and full in. its. fresh, spring-time beauty. Tho lona lnshcfr- drooped driVklv- oyov -?the-pale nrna'Tn'^u^-^ lips had not lost their delicate curve and crimson stain. The soft milky skin showed beneath it the olive tint it had worn in life. The clinging dress but imperfectly concealed each rounded limb and the exquisite outline of body. I felt a strange attraction in looking at this dead woman. She must have been unsurpassingly lovely* when life was instinct in thc frame now so chill. The warm sun of her native land could not have b^en more lustrous than her eyes were then. I felt that I had seen her before. The conviction grew upon me as my eyes became rivited on her features. The face haunted me. For an hour my memory was at fault, but it caine at last. Like a flash, recollection returned. Site was thc original of the picture. Eagerly I bent forward and traced again and again each outline of face and figure. There could bo no mistake -the liniaments were the same. On examining the body it was discov ered that she had been murdered. A deep penetrating wound in her side, made with a small Spanish dagger,, which yet filled the cavity, disclosed thc means of her death. This knife bore the initials E. F. They dir1 not stand for her name nor that of her be trayer. It was a costly weapon, for in the handle was a brilliant of value. I took the knife to a- jeweler, and asked him to examine it. The monogram ar rested Iiis attention at once, rle took it and examined it closely. Then from his desk he brought a jewel set in gold, on which was a lettering precisely simi lar. "Where "did you get this?" I asked. " Frbu a customer of mine." " A lady ?" "Yes." " Where is she to be found ?" He showed me a direction. It was that of a lady of fashion ; a^Cuban vis iting in the city. I went to her at once. On mention ing my name she showed me evident signs of uneasiness, and motioning me to a private room, begged with white lips and a faltering utterance, the na ture of my errand. I detailed the circumstances briefly I told her of the ciminal, the flight and escape, of the dead body ; I showed hei thc knife, and the ring I had obtained at the jeweler's. " Madame," I concluded, " I must arrest you for murder!" . "Oh, no ! no, no," she exclaimed, " ] will confess till ; not mine the sin, no mine the deed !" She then told me who the man was where he lived, and the circumstance! that occasioned the poor girl's death. It appears from her statem?ut tba some weeks before, the banker hat wearied of the young girl, and hat abandoned her. He had then- paid hi court to her, and not knowing his ante cedents, and judging of him by the sta .finn he held in society, she had consent od to marry him. That the eveninj previous she had been walking wit) him on the pier. Standing there in th moonlight, they had been approacher by a female clad as this one was. Up braidings and angry reproaches follow ed. and the girl, in the madness am frenzy of her distress, threatened to re veal a secret. The words had scarce! left her lips when thc man struck he with thc dagger I held in my hanc She said ho had taken it from her a fcA moments, and was toying with it who the woman caine up. " When the blow was struck," sh said, " the woman reeled and fell int the river I saw her as she sunk beneat the water, and her white face upturned in agony yet haunts me Avith its horror. I screamed and fled. It was the most terrible sight I ever witnessed." The woman told her story truthfully, I could not doubt. But, as I supposed, the man was gone. He was never heard of afterwards ; and this little memory is all that is left of the wrecked and ruined woman who died beneath the flood. -:-? ?-: Squirt-Guns and Sardines. A Western landlord, somewhat noted for his blunders, took it into his head to get up a bali at his tavern. As he intended to do the thing up brown, and have everything on the big auger plan, he fancied that a -few " store fixtures" would be a great addition to the bili of j fare of pork and turkey. He therefore made inquiry of his friends, and' found"] t'-iat the Only delicacy in^matket at that s;ason cf the year .was jardines;-ac cordingly he sent to.the^rfearest city for tvro dozen boxes sardines.-; His -chirography, however, was so bad as- to make rt read "two dozen boxes .syringes." " The night of the party came, and as supper time drew near the landlord looked anxiously down the street for the appearance of the stage which was j to bring the principal dish on the bill; At last it ar ri ver I, and with a pack age for the expectant landlord. . . Directly , there was a great outcry, and a sonni of cursing in the bar-room, j Thc-entire party rushed out to-sec - what was the matter, and ther?-stood Boniface,' as mad as a turkey-t!Ock,puif- ;| ing and blowing with rage. " Sec there 1" said he, .' seo there !. I sent to Dubuque foi-" two dozen boxes ' of j sardines for supper- to-night, and.the cussed fool sent mc- fwenty-three boxes of them d-*-d pewter squirt guns, and says that's-all there was in themarket !" ALWAYS AN OBJECT OF-CONTEMPT:-. Diclc''Claiborne, when-parish justicc^of. Northern' Louisiana, ' officiated with a dignity that' was slightly appalling to. the til.lid. .Vraong the multifarious-duties, and .powers of.the-parish judge-was that of auctioneer.' He sold all tho property ol' succession in his parish. ..- It happened, on one occasion, in sell ing out the property, of a deceased grocer? that au unruly parishioner dis turbed the .order of . the proceedings. The judge fined hinufifty dollars, and sent him to jail for contempt of court. An application was made to him by an attorney to remit the fine and re lease tiie prisoner, on the groiy?d itiat Tr was rio cunTTTTrjrr-m iuu. i,-rrs-rrrc judge, when fulfilling the office of auc tioneorj was not a court, and therefore not an object of contempt. The judge immediately drew himself up with all his dignity and conscious power, and replied : '. *>ir, PH let you know that I am judge of this parish--judge all the time, from the rising to the setting of the sun, and. as such, always un object of j contempt !" ? A Perry SNOUDED.-The resemblance of some people to dogs is thus illustra ted : Mnj?'r T. was a paymaster ia the ar my, an old newspaper editor, a man of vast acquirements and brilliant abilities. He was on duty in Cincinnati during the war, and for his amusement bought a choice dog of some kind or other (if there is any choice among dogs.) There wa? a young man of the genus puppy, who had a great desire to culti vate the major's acquaintance, much to thc latter's annoyance. As a' kind of entering wedge to a friendship, the young fellow hit upon the felicitous plan of inquiring after the major's dog whenever he met him. The latter bore it for six or eight daySj until his patience gave out. At last, one morning tue fellow came up with his usual salutation : " Major, how's your dog?" To which the major answered prompt ly ^-v^o '. Quite,well, I ih.ank you; how are you?" The question was never repeated. -r A TOUGH STORY.-There ., ia a place in Maine so rocky that wh?rii&e na tives plant corn they look for crevices in the rocks, and shoot the grains irr with a musket; they can't raise ducks there no how, for the stones are so thick that the ducks can't get their'bills be tween them to pick out the grass-hop pers, and thc only way thc sheep can get at the sprigs of grass is by grinding their noses on a grindstone. But this ain't a circumstance to aplace in Mary land-there: the land is so poor that it takes two Icildeers to cry " kildeer," and on a clear day you can see the grasshoppers climb up a mulin stalk, and look with tears over a fifty acre field ; and the bumblebees have to go down on their knees to get at the grass ; all-the musquitoes died of starvation, and the turkey buzzards were obliged to emigrate. But there isa county in Virginia which can beat that-there the land is so sterile when- the wind is northwest they have to tie the children to keep 'em from being blown away there it takes six frogs to raise one croak, and when the dogs bark they have to lean against the fences-the horses are so thin that it' takes twelve of them to make a shadow, and when they kill a beef they have to hold him up "to knock him down !

' With the candidat' the Democracy selected to carry thei standard nothing but defeat was to bi expected, and we suppose that not evei the most .sanguine' member of the part; anticipated any other termination ti the contest than the election of Genera Grant. " Let us- have peace" is Iii motto.

Brunson, whose lamented death we notice on another column, bequeath ed to bia faithful servant Washington, upon his death, forty acres of land, a mule, a wagon/a cow and calf, a fine stock of hogs and one-half the crop grown upon the farm the present year Upon the coming of freedom, Washing ton preferred to follow the fortunes of his old master, remaining with him and ^ conducting himself with fidelity and V faithfulness, and so also did the wife and family of Washington. . During his last illness, Mr. Brunson received un ceasing attention from his faithful ser vant, who regarded his old master his best earthly friend and loved him with the affection of a child for a parent. This is but one of tens of thousands of instances which would have occurred in our country, Jmt for the poisonous in fluences and wicked teachings of Radi cal emissaries, by whom the colored man has been led to suspicion, and to regard as an enemy his former master, until, in fact, an antagonism has beeu. created bstween them, which, in all probability, can never be obliterated. The colored main-has. been seduced by these infamous men from his interest,__and his faith, and is being steadily lured by the same in-: fluence to his ruin. The Southern man has cleared his skirts. Pretty Good* Many incidents of an amusing, char acter happened during the late Avar which have never found their way into print, but which are too good to be lost. The following, wc believe, has not here tofore met the public eye : Wash Petty, a notorious bushwhacker whilst foraging iu Southwest Missouri with his. followers, rode up to a farm house -whose owner was known to have ample provisions for man and beast, but whose politics were best known to him self. Petty and his men being dressed in Federal uniform, were mistaken by the farmer for " jayhawkers." He be gan to declare most- positively that he was a " Union man. God never made a better." Petty said " we a:e hunting your sort ; we are rebel bushwhacker*." Whereupon the farmer changed his tac tics and declared just as positively that he was a " Southern man." " Look here, old man," said Petty, " you don't know to which side we belong, and you must take one side or the other, and stick to it ; if you happen to take thc wrong side we'll kill you." This stag gered the man considerably, but after thinking a minute, he said : "Well; I Unit! at the- start J waa .a .Union, man,i.' ' tina ? ii ?iicynric ii ic ia a u. a m lie was left to enjoy his peculiar opin ions without further molestation. MARRY HER FIRST.-Many yean ago, in what is now a flourishing city, lived a stalwart blacksmith, fond of his pipe and his joke. He was also fond of j his blooming daughter, whose many graces had ensnared the affections of a young printer. The couple, after a sea son of billing and cooing, " engaged themselves," and nothing but the con sent of the young Indy's parents pre vented their union. To obtain this an interview was arranged, and the typo prepared a little speech to admonish and convince the old man, who sat en joying his pipe in perfect content. The ty^jo dilated on the fact of their long friendship, their mutual attachment, their hopes for the future, and like top ics ; and taking thc daughter by the hand, he said : " I am now, sir, to ask your permission to transplant this love ly flower from its parent bed" but his feelings over?ame him, and he forgot the remainder of his oratorical flourish, stammered, and finally wound up with, " from its parental bed into my own." The father keenly relished this discomfiture of the suitor, and, re moving his pipe and blowing a cloud, replied: "Well, young man, I don't know as I have any obj ectiont provided you marry the girl first." -1--? ? ?.-?-: .

Look at New Orleans, from which we have reported 2,500 for Seymour and 276 for Grant. There was a cime, he remembered, when the people of that city behaved better. [Applause.] He felt confident such time would come once more. Several Southern States voted for Seymour, or are in doubt, be cause men's lives were threatened if they attempted to vote. When Congress meets as it will in a short time, it will be our purpose to find a remedy for this kind ofthing, and if Johnson decs not second our efforts, though.it may be late in the day, we will try and provide for him. [Applause.] _ GOOD.-We understand that the ne groes of Beech Island, S. C., and ita neighborhood, are calmly but confident ly awaiting the division of lands, mules and other property now held by the whites. They understand the election of Grant to bc equivalent to a home stead, and nothing to do for the rest of | their natural lives. When their expec tations are realized and the titles to the aforementioned property obtained, we should like to see the omni. The only way in which any of the poor deluded creatures will ever become possessed of | property of any kind, which they can hold under the light of day, will be by the " sweat of their brow," and the time is not far distant when this truth will be sorrowfully, but sternly realized.-Au gusta Constitutionalist.

Our Trailncersi Now that the election is over, and the country " saved," according to the Rad ical " patriots," North and-South, we may reasonably hope that the misrepre sentations from which we have so long suffered, may at last cease. How muop this species of insidious.warfare has cost the South.it would be difficult to esti-j mate. We speak not now of Uncle i Tom's Cabin which gaye an immense impetus to the Republican party,-nor j of thc poems, essays and sermons, innu merable, which were circulated as tracts, all over the North and West, and con- j tributed their share in fomenting the war ; we refer more specially to the swarm of'lying newspaper correspon dents, who were sent out here from the surrender of Genera1 Lee up to the date af General Grant's election. These men, .vith very few exceptions, were obscure Bohemians, ignorant, ? ippant, and ut terly devoid of principle. They were sent for a specific purpose, and knowing that the surest road to favor with their principals was to paint men and things in the most glaring colors, they set to it with a will, and spared not the brush. This line of action subserved.its pur pose admirably ; ' contributing nov mean mare instrengtheningihe Radical ranks in the elections two years ^go, Thei o?icy of Mr: Johnson was condemned y the " voice of the nation," as was the fashionable phrase 0/ that day, the four teenth amendment was ratified. Next same the reconstruction acts, und with ' them the great hegira of the carpet baggers ; from whose ranks the staff of aewspaper correspondents was constant ly recruited. A stronger motive was Qow added-interest, ambition, cove tousness. Three of the strongest pas sions of the human heart goaded these - gentry to the perpetration of. the gros sest injustice on an innocent people ; the love of gain, the lust of power, and ibject and cowardly fear; the latte?

Not only were we traduced in the Northern prints of every description, the newspaper, the illustrated weeklies," the literary magazines and reviews, and thc ponderous tomes, but their misera ble caricature was accepted as a faith ful portrait, by their own people, the people of England, France Germany, and the rest of the world.

Yet in his schoolbooks he had learned they were semi-savages ; in the \ illage newspaper he read of their cruelties and barbarism; and though an intelligent and an edu cated man, one who ought to have known better, he confessed that these constant iterations .produced their ctV feet, even upon his mind. He gave us the picture of the traditional Souther ner, blustering, bullying, tobacco chew ing, pistol brandishing. Mr. Vernon Harcourt, one of the leading men in England, better known as " Historicus" of the Times, a few week's ago, at the Social Science Con gress, in Manchester, said : M Gentlemen who had travelled in the Southern States have often seen persons sit down to a peaceful dinner with a re volver in each coat tail pocket. Of course, it was only for the purpose of self-defence, but then it very frequent ly happened that before dinner was over two or. three were shot." In France and Germany, particularly among the " Liberal" party, we find the same ignorant prejudice against us. Our immigrant agents have met-with little success in consequence. They had not-only to contend with the current literature hostile in its tone, ' but found yet more formidable obstacles in the] numerous paid agents from the North west who spread infamous falsehoods to our prejudice, in order to induce emiT grants to go to Indiana, Illinois, Iowa., &c., and not to South Carolina. We hope that' this warfare will now cease, and that the hand of time may be per mitted to break down this thick wall of prejudice. A fair race-justice-is all we ask. We claim no exemptions, no special favors ; only that which is our rightful due. We have beeu so long accustomed to these calumnies, that we fear some of our people have at last begun to accept as truth the verdict Of their detractors. We are glad therefore that Commodore Maury, m a recent address before an Agricultural Fair in Staunton, Va., took pains to look into this subject, and nobly vindicated the Southern peeple from these foul aspersions. He said there is nothing more com-, mon than the assertion that the South ern people lack energy. It, is- a mis chievous error. The North is appar ently more prosperous, because it is' manufacturing and commercial, the South agricultural. In all manufactur ing and commercial communities pro ducts are concentrated, and there is a show of life and activity never seen in agricultural communities, because labor is there diffused. Another reason is, that the statistics showing the rewards of labor at the North and South are not quito fairly presented. For instance, suppose that one of your neighbors, in giving you an accent of his earnings during the year, should tell vou that he had housed so many barrels of corn, which was worth five dollars a barrel ; and killed so many hundred weight of pork, that was worth eight cents a pound ; had so many pounds of bacon, worth twelve cents ; but when you come to catechise him a little closer, you find that it had taken all of his corn to fatten his pork, and all of his pork to make hi's bacon. Now, this is the way with the Kay ! crop of the North, which is worth as much as the cotton crop of the South, ; as Governor Scott said in his message ' to the Legislature. In the last returns, ' the hay crop of thc North is put down at upwards of three hundred millions dollars ; the value of the live stock at a little more, and the value of the butter and cheese at many millions, when thu hay went to make "it all. There is still another reason for this apparent greater prosperity of the North, and the appa rent show of greater energy and enter prise there. According to the census of 1790, the population of tho United States-was very nearly equally divided between the North and South ; and ac cording to the returns of the subsequent ? census, the ratio of natural increase was greater at thc South than at the North. But notwithstanding this, the popula tion of the North, according to the cen sus of I860, was, in round nuinbar?, eleven millions greater than' at the South. Did it ever occur to you, says Com modore Maury, when an emigrant comes into the country, to calculate how much he adds to. the national wealth, not by the money which he brings, but bettie labor which he is able to perform ? 1er that labor you 'will pay him, at, i. e least, one hundred dollars a year.' Ho, therefore, represents an industrial capi tal of which a hundred dollars a year is the interest, precisely in the same way that a steam engine, by the work \ which it is capable of performing, re resents an industrial capital. The la or, therefore, of a white man represents quite as much industrial Capirafas wie lab6rot^aTnegro did before the war, which for an able-bodied- man varied from twelve to fifteen hundred dollars. Taking oldand young, male and female, let us suppose that each ?migrant rep resents an induBttial capital pf lour hundred dollars. And then we must weigh these eleven millions of excess of Northern population as the number of * emigrants, and the' descendants-of emi grants, which have come into the coun try since 1790 and settled at the North rather than at the South. Multiply that by four hundred and you have up wards of four thousand millions of dol lars, which the North- has, acquired, not- . from any superior energy of her people, but merely by the-influx of laborers and foreigners from abroad. Suppose these '' eleven millions had settled m Virginia, what would not have been the wealth of the State ?--?harleston Mercury. . ATROCIOUS MURDER.-On .Saturday last, twr inoffensive colored men, Con servative in their politics, came to Or angeburg with a wagon, from the lower - part of St. Matthews, sold their cotton, and started on their return home that evening, with the proceeds; ^partly in vested ra supplies, in their wagon.

SINGULAR" MOVEMENT IN WASHING TON.-We clip the following from the Cincinnati Enquirer of the 9th, giving it for whatsit is worth : WASHINGTON, November 8, 1868.-A singular movement has been originated by certain politicians, having in view the casting of the Democratic electoral votes for Grant. It is urged it would ' influence Grant to a conservative course, to which he is undoubtedly inclined. A circular letter on this subject has been addressed to Mr. Pendleton, Governor Stevenson and Gen. Preston, of Ken tucky, A. H. Stephens, and prominent. Democrats of the North. ?he following is the text of the letter : WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 8,1868. . GENERAL :-Ic my judgment the wis est thing the Democracy could now do would be to throw their entire electoral vote for General Grant, as an indication of the fact that, should he pursue a lib eral, generous and magnanimous curse, they will sustain him. It would also have the effect of not leaving him alto gether in the hands of the adverse fae-, tion, and would doubtless strengthen any purpose he may entertain toward the conservative sentiment of the coun try. This vote can not possibly do Sey mour any good, and thrown in the man ner suggested would, at least, produce a conciliatory impression. Very truly, yours, &c. When a woman says another.woman has a good figure, you may be pretty sure that other woman is freckled, or that she squints, or that she is marked with the small pox. But if she simply says, she is " a gc od soul/' you may be morally certain that she is both ugly and ill made.
