We frequently hear of a pretty
poem, but we hivo one here that is su
perlativoly pretty-in faci, in it the
pretty is pretty well used up, although
there is "protty'little" in it
A pretty little maiden
Had a pretty little dream,
A pretty littlp wedding
Was the pretty little theme.
A pretty little bachelor
To win her-favor tried,
And asked her how-she'd like to be
His pretty littld bfide.
With some f>retty.little blushes;
And a pretty little sigh,
And some pretty little glances
From a pretty little eye;
With a pretty l1tle face
Behind a pretty fai
She umiled on the proposals
Of this pretty little man.
Some pretty little "loves," .
And s.ome pretty little "dears,"
SQme pretty little smiles,
And some pretty little tears;
Some pretty little presents,
And a pretty little kiss,
Were some' prqtty little preludes
To some pretty little bliss.
This pretty little lady
And her pretty little spark,
Mot the pretty little parson
And his pretty little- clerk ;
A pretty little wedding ring
nited t'hein for life,
A,pretty little husband ;,0
And a pretty little wife.
Prussian foney.
At a sitting of the Committee of the
- Lower House upon the address, held on
the 17th ultimo, Count Bismark gave
the following explanations as'to the poli
cy- iii'ended to be pursured by Prus
8ia :
Little difference exists between the
authors of the various drafts of address,
or between the (Government. and the
Chambers, as to the object to.which the
policy of Ge'rmany-ought to be directed.
The question is onlyto discover by what
methods that object shall be ' autained.
Government has been forced to confine
itself within the limits of possibility-i.e.
of what can be realized without enor
mous sacrifices and without compromis
ing the future. We should have run
this risk if we had crossed the limits
we have marked out for our policy.
We must keep theongagements we have
contracted in this respect, and above all
create confidence in bur word. But
we do not think it would have been use
1 ful at. present to go further.. The Prus
sian Government is suafficiently animated
by atrong.ambition to render it advisa
ble to moderate rather than stimulate it.
According to- the peace preliminaries,
the North Germans will nave the charge
of regulating the national relations of
the Southern Confederation. To carry
out this task we shall have to examine
whether the want of this organisation
is felt m'ore strongly by the population
of South.Germnany than by their Gov
ernments, as it now happens that we see
Prussian soldiers who pass beyom) the
line of demarkation exposed to the pop
Sular animosity. It is for us next to ima
p art solid foundations to the new union.
Ibelieve that in trying to extend them
too far their solidity would be diminish
Sed. W'e could not, for iinstanqe, submit
a State like Bavarja to such donditions
as.we intend now to impose upon cer..
:tain States of the North. Let "e try first
.to establish a powerful Prussia, a pow.
erful crown domain of the directing
State. The .ie of- a close union by
which we mean to form Northern (hr
anu will not be so atrong a* an an in.
1corporation. Nevertheless, 'there .are
only two or three modes'to prevent al
lied races constrained by their - govern
snents turning their arm. 'against us.
The first of these is inoopo 'ton and
e'omplete fusion of the ' waIoi
rpsia, and in esp.ci4f gae'
fonctionaries who will remain attached
to the -old Governments. The Govern.
ment does not consider that it onght to
surmount these difficulties at a single
leap, as is the custom of the Latin peo.
ple; but it will proceed, in the 'German
manner, by humoring the institutions kd
these populations, and accustoming.ttiem
gradually to their new situation. 'The
second course is the partition of the
rights of sovereignity, t. e., the establish
ment of a military sovereign and a civil.
sovereign. Compelled by circumstancos
we must endeavor to apply this system
in Saxony. I had at one time a rnarked
preference for this method, but after the
the improssions I have oreceived from
the reorganization ofSchleswig-Holstejn,
I am afraid such a system would be.
come a source of collisions which might
lead to a coolness of the annexed coun.
tries towards their new masters. In
reference to this point Lhavo been met
with the remark, "We don't wish to be
come second glass Prussians."' But in.
dependently of these impreqsions, this
system possesses the inconvenience, that
one of the two masters, the military
sovereign who is'a foreigner, always
comes forward with distastoful require
ments, while all the beneficent influence
of civil action remain in the hands of the
old sovereign. I regret, as I have said,
that we are conpelled to make this ex
periment in Saxoily. We did not wish
to make a much diminished Hanover
and Saxony. Lastly, the third method
would be to divide the territories as they
have been hitherto composed. We did
wish to make a much diminished Hano.
ver and Saxony. We made unpleasant
experiences with the system in Saxony
in 1815. The portiond of that country
which were then given to Prussia have
been completely fused in her, but in the
portion that has presqrv.ed its anitorny.
a frank~avrsion is retained towards
Prussia. For this reason we have now
completely departed from this system,
which was suggested, to us; we have
placed the interests of the populations
abQve'the interests of the dynasties. It
'is true that this course perhaps produces
the impression of injustice, but the sci.
ence of politics has not the mission of
Nemesis. Vengeance does not apper.
tam to us. We must do what is a ne.
cessity for the Prussian State, and must
consequently not allow ourselves to be
guided by any dynastic sympathy. Poo
ple have already learned to appreciate
us even in those very countries. Han.
overians have already said to me : "Pre
serve our dynasty for us; but if that is
not possible, then try at least not to par
celout our territory, but take it entire."
As regards our allies, they, have only
been few in numbers, or weak; but du.
ty, no less than prudence, ordains that
we should keep our word. -even to the
smallest among them. The less hesita.
tion Preusia shows in sweeping her
enemies from the map the more is she
bound strictly to keep her ,word with
her friends. It is precisely in Southern
Germany that. faith in our political loy.
alty will have great weight. As for the
Constitution of the Empire of 1849, it
w'll only be one of the forms through
which 'the problem I have just pointed
out will find its solution. I adniit that
in theory that Constitution proceeds
with mor strictno and consistency
than our scheme, the union, because it
makes, so to speak, of the different sov
ereigns the subjects,.the vassals of the
future Emperor of Germany; but these
sovereigns will be more disposed.to con.
cede right, to an aly, a functionary of
the union, than to an Emperor.and Suze

THAT GAVEL.-'I-f the full report of
the proceedings of the. Mulattg Cofiven.
tion at Philadelphia, we find thd follow.
.rCharles Gibbons, ChAirman of the
Reception Commiltee, came - forward,
with a small gavel in his hand, and said:
"I hold in my hand the ;dential' gavel
used in Charleston, South Carolina,
when the Coavontion assembled there
in 1860 for the dissolution of the Ameri.
cati Union." [Derisive laughter, and
shouts of "Throw it a*ay."] This is
the gavel which. 'called together that
Convention which declared the -Anteri
can Union dissolVed. [Cries of "Break
it tip," "Throw it down' here," &c.1
Sir, turning to Governor,'Hanilton, I
have the pleasure of tendering it to you
for the purpose of,calling together that
loyal Convention which, is to lay the
foundation for the re-estahlishment of
that Union. Governor Ramilton ac
ceptel the gift, and thdn the ceremonies
were declared ended. ,
The statement abotit the identity of
the gavel is a asheer fabricstion. The
Philistines did not possess themselvesof
this souvenir. The gavel tised by that
Convention, us well as the President's
ehair and table, are now in thbis city.
At the adjournment' of thb. assemblage
those relics were presented by the Con.
vention to the St. Andrews Society,
who had tendered the free uso of their
building, and are now in the possession
of the Secretary. The gavel, which has
an ivory, head and ebony handlej we
saw.yesterday. It has the word "seces

possession of the Secretary during his

PAPEn.-Generally . peakng but little
importance is attach. .to the taking of
a country newspaper. This neglect and
indifference had its practical reward the
other day.
Some time ago a gentleman. it this.
town was appointed an auditor to distri.
bute the funds in the hands'of an adminA
istrator amongst the creditors.. No.
tice Of the auditor was published in two
of the county papers.
It so happened that a few creditors
residing in a certain portion of the coi-i
ty who had collectively claims to the
amountofseven or eight hundred dol.
lars, from the neglect of-taking a county
paper never heard of the audit until
after. the report of the auditqr had been
confirmed -by tho' court. They then.
came into town to enquire about the
likelihood of securing their claims ; call.
ed upon an attorney who examined into
the matter, and informed them that they
had forever. lost their money, and we
'presume -charged them five dollars for
the information' All this resulted from
being too penurious or too careless to
subscribe for a county paper.
These gentlemen have learned a les
son that will last them' the balauce'of.
their lives, and as,a warning to others
who from the same motives fail to take
their county paper.
There is,scarcely a man'in the com.
minity who will not he caught up some
day pn a legal notice, b'ut that does not
take a paper, unless he d1a4eitinely
reads his neighbor's, an4. every gentle
man should be above literary.-ilring
like this, so says an exchapge.

ERT DEAD.-Gen. Geo. W. Morgan, a
soldier of the war, who is running as a
Delferatio candidate for Congress in
the Coshodtdn district, against Colum.
-bus Delano, receitly. made the follow
ing statemennt in a speech there:
* * * The people of the South
have extended,to the people of the
West and Noith the hand of reconcil
,iation. To sustain what I say I could
narrate many facts, but will mention
but one.
In order to secure a suitable cemo
tory for our gallant soldidrs who fell
upon the plains of Alabama, the au
thorities of the United Stats desired
to purchase three acres boautifull 10
cated within the corporate limits of
tho city of Mobile. The tract was
valuable, but the purpose was sacred
to which it was to be dedicated. It
was proposed to make three acres the
honored home of the Union dead, and
there, within the corporate limits of
Mobile, to erect a monument to. com
memorate,tkeir deeds. But the au
thorities of Mobile refused to sell.
What I refuse to sell sufficient ground
to contain the- bones of our absent
ones-our fathers, brothers, sons ?
Yes, my cohntrymen, these Southern
men did refuse to sell sufficient ground
on which to bury our heroic dead
but with a magnanimity only equalled
by their courage, those Southern men
did by free gift convey those three
acres to the United States ! And the
hand of the Mayor of Mobile-the
hand which signed that deed of gift
had, duting our unhappy war, wield
ed the sword of a Confederate Gener
. [Applause.]
EUGENIE.-The - Ampress is impulsive,..
very kind, and has a smile that would
be really sweet and charming in any
woman, and that, naturally, loses none
of its charm by showing itself in the
face of an Empress to a world still
weakly partial to "uIajeaty." The
charm of the Emperor's smile is in its
way, just as effective, its power being
often acknowledged even by those who
detest bim most cordially, A in the case
of M.Provost Paradol, 060 V! his bit
tetest political oppnents, who, having
been re::eived by the Empkror, as is the
custom here, after his recent reception
in.o the academy, on which occasibn he
had crammed his discourse with ingeni
ously yet transparently covered allusions
to the emperor of the most bitingly ma-'
licions character, and being mentioned
shortly afterward by a friend as to the
impression made upon him by the inter.
view, could. not avoid expressing his
sense of the charm of the emperor's
manner, and added, quoting a well
known French proverb, "The fact it,
mn cher, that in order thoroughly to
hate people, one shoold not - see them

A Noxtro'tc AFitii.-The *Mont

accounts of rather a romantic elopement,
case, which occurred from Schma a few
days ago. The pair, consisting of a gay
and festive Yanikeq Sergeant, aml a
very young girl-daughter of a highly
respectable family in Selnma-went to
Montgomery for the pnrpose of realiz

were so closely pursued as to render it
impracticable to be married there, and
they pushed on to find their Gretria

had been too fast for them, and instead.
of fallihg into the. tendWe embraces of

takedl to the Planter's Hotel, and held
in durance for three or - four day, until
the young lady's father arrived, when'
she consented to return' to her hoine
and the "bould eoger boy" was turned
over to the military to answer the
charge of desertion. Verily "the course
of true love does not run smooth."
