A Dying Soldier Frays for the President The case of Private Scott, of the York town army, killed in a fight near Lee's Mills, Va., on the 16th inst.,is thus nar rated hv the corresnondent of the Phila delphia Inquirer : Never until we stood hy the grave of the Green Mountain hoys did we realize how much stranger is truth than fiction. Your readers .will all recollect that last Summer a private was court-martialed for sleeping on his poet, out near Chain Bridge, on the upper Potomac- He was convicted: his sentence was death ; the finding was approved of hy the General, and the day fixed for his execution. He was a youth of more than ordinary intel ligence ; he did not beg for pardoD, but was willing to meet his fate. The time drew near; the stern necessity of war required that an examnle should be made of some one : his was an aggravated case. But the case reached the ears of the President; he resolved to save him; he signed a par don and sent it out ; the day came. "Sup pose," thought the President, " my par don has not reached him." The telegraph was called into requisition ; 'an answer did not come promptly. " Bring up my car riage," he ordered. It came, and soon the important State papers were dropped, and, through the hot, broiling sun and dusty roads, he rode te the camp, about ten miles, and saw that the soldier was saved. He has doubtless forgotten the incident, but the soldier did not. When the 3rd Vermont charged upon the rifle pits, the enemy poured a volley upon them. The first man who fell, with six bullets in his body, was Win. Scott of Company K. His comrades, caught him up, and, as his life blood ebbed away, he raised to heaven, amid the din of war, the cries of the dy ing, and shouts of the enemy, a prayer for the President. , He"was interred in the presence of his regiment, in a little grove about two miles to the rear of the Rebel fort, in the center of a group of holly and vines ; a few cherry-trees, in full bloom,' are scattered around the edge. In digging his grave, a skull and bones were found, and metal buttons, showing that the identical spot had been used in the Revolutionary war for our fathers who fell in the same cause. The Chaplain narrated the circumst to the boys, who stood around covered heads. He dent, and paidj his noble tears s look of satis- 'and could the he would have mercy had been wisely is Demockacy ? Forney's Philadelphia Press says : We are justly called to account by a Douglas democrat, who gees for the war and against the rebellion, and who sup ports tht administration in all its efforts to prosecute the one and put down the other, for speaking of the Breckinridge democracy. He says, with great truth, "there is no such thing as a Breckin ridge, democracy. There is a Breckin ridge party opposed to the war and sympa thizing with the rebellion, hut this cannot be called a democracy. Yoa might desig nate the slaveholder treason as a democ racy with as much Iruth. - When the dem ocratic organisation fell into the hands of the Breckinridge leaders, it ceased to be a democracy.. The:- only combination now opposed to the war;andin favor of the rebellioB is the Breckinridce party." We I accept the suggestida,. Hereafter, let us refuse to give, the mom of. IHmocracy to any men or party that derate themselves to assaults upon anadmiaikration that can have n other5 higher; ambition than to conduct the war- ewaatfally and to crush out the reballio. ? i r AneiatmUhBiatician, a Professor rf'Uaiveraity Cdflegt, Oxford, beingchaL Iwi tb'i-CartyVe- te " Timbtctoo," proisjTffi."irith the following uv rfTiiSseFifei ?-a ' .. .

" " Sweat Corn. Every farmer should plant a small crop of sweet corn as early in the season as ad missable, that is, the ground should be warm enough to sprout the reed immedi atelyand danger from the severe freezes past. A slight frost which kills the first leaves, will not materially injure it ; new leaves will soon be thrown out. It is well to run some risk of frost in planting a small patch. If it should get killed, it is a small job to replant it and it is very pleas ant and wholesome to have a few nice ears for boiling very early in the season. It makes the good housewife feel much better pleased with herself, " and the rest of mankind." To have plenty of such arti cles of fresh, green feod with which to vegetate her table and the fare of her household, and especially to have them early. Green corn does not relish half so well after your neighbors have been-in the enjoyment of the luxury for two or three weeks as it does when you have it as early as any body else; if not a little earlier. Neither do I believe it so good. It seems to me green corn is relished better, and is more wholesome food in June, than it is three weeks later. The principal object of this article, how ever, was to mention a fact of which many do not seem to be aware, namely, that sweet corn should be soaked in warm water before planting. If soaked for a few hours, over' night for instance, in warm water about blood heat, the shrivel ed grains will become swollen and it will quickly germinate and grow; while if un soaked it requires much mom time and is often uncertain to grow. Sugar Sweet Corn is the best variety for early, Stow ell's JKivergreen for a succession, or for drying or curing. The Plot Against tiie President's Life. For a long time it was believed that an Italian barber in Baltimore was the Orsini who undertook to slay President Lincoln on his journey to the capital in February, 1861 and it is possible he was one of the plotters; but it has come out on a recent trial of a man named Byrne, in Richmond, that he was the band that was to take the captain of the life of Air. Lincoln. This Byr to be a noto- nous gambler of d emigra ted-to Richmon te 19th of l,of blood He was re- arres'ed HPIB7 Davis capital on a of keeping a gambling house, and oyalty to the chief traitor's pretend- vernment. Wigfall testified to e s loyalty to the rebel cause, and in evidence that Byrne was the cap- in of the gang who wereto kill Mr. Lin- , and upon this evidence, it appears, he let go. Of cturse, to be guilty of such a crime is a mantle large enough to cover up all ther sins against society and the divine law. So Wigfall has revealed the Baltimore Orsini at last. What will your Vidocq say to this ? We are, nevertheless, grate ful to Mr. Kennedy for his successful pre vention of the schemes of assassination. Cor. N, K Post. It is the standing falsehood of Demo cratic papers that the ranks of our volun teer army are made up of Demtcrats, while the Republicans serve only as offi cers. ; They utterly ignore the fact that a majority of the Brigadier Generals ap pointed by President Lincoln, (so far as their politics are known,) are Democrats, as also that such Republican Governors as those of Massachuseets, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin, have given the, Democrats the lion's share in the list of regimental officers. We simply don't believe the Democrats have furnished one half as many men in the ranks as the Republic ans, else why do the Democrats brae so largely of their ability to carry elections? It appeared that when the New Hamp shire boys on the Poteaac voted that three fourths of them were Republicans ; and now the volunteers from New London county, Conn., have counted noses, and find that mtre than two-thirds are Re publicans. Chicago Tribune. "-". A New Idea. The Boston Daily Ad vertiser prints ihe following 'suggestion, furnished by a gentleman abroad respect ing the dispoaition.to be nude of the Fort Denelson prisoners. I propose that they be exchanged for slaves, on-the principle of Southern renre- sentation, five secessionists for three slaves reversing me oraer or values." ' i 1 '.- A A f I Xncident in a Hospital. A correspondent of the Buffalo Courier writing from St. Louis, mentions the fol lowing touching incident which happened in one of the hospitals: In another ward I saw a Tennesseean. whose cheek presented the pallor f death. I walked up to his bedside. His hand was trying to grasp some object that, in his fitful delirium, was pictured on his dying imagination. His lips feebly utter ed the word "Catharine." I took his hand in mine ; his eyes, that were rolled upward in their sockets, wandered around until he was able to fii their gaze on me. " Bo yousay something?" said I tenderly. He: motioned me to put my ear down. "O my wife Catharine my children f ' His breathing was short his voice very faint. " How many children have you?" said I. He held up his four fingers. " What is yeur name ?" said I. " William C. Bran don," replied he. " Where are you from?" I asked. "Dodsville, Jackson county, Tennessee." I was revolving in my mind if there would be an epportunity w ivi wuu luicnigcuuo ui uiui to maiaint- ly, when he said, " Will you write to Cath arine ? Tell her I I thought of her and the children, I I prayed for them oh God ! oh God !" I assured him I would endeavor to fulfill his request. I then talked to him about a Redeemer, and after a while he seemed happier. His looks spoke what words could not. Probably 50,000 people have heard, and hardly less than 5,000,000 have read, Mr. Phillips lectures this Winter, wherein he has repeatedly and explicitly stated that whereas he has been a disunionist, believ ing the Union to be a bulwark of slavery, he is now unequivocally and heartily for the Union, because he is satisfied that the Union cause is now inseperably bound up with that of impartial liberty. He has im posed no conditions, made no qualifica tions, but a hundred times said, " I com prehend perfectly that many of you Un ionists do not mean emancipation ; I real ize that the war is not waged for emancipa tion ; but I see further, that you will have to emancipate or be beaten, and am with you at all hazards and to the last." Such is the spirit, such the drift, of Mr. Phil lips' war lectures, and such are the utter ances which Democratic ruffians do their utmost to suppress by yells, paving-stones, and bad eggs. He who does not see that their heaits are with Jeff. Davis and hi'3 crew, can have nothing like a heart of his own. N". Y. Tribune. Who is James G. Bltjict? Kansas has recently been honored with two Briga diers Robert B. Mitchell and James G. .Blunt. This latter appointment smells of fraud. With regard to this mysterious personage, the Leavenworth Times says: Who is Jas. G. Blunt? This is the prevailing query, and one which we would like to be satisfactorily answered. Who is Jas. G. Blunt? and what are his recommendations for a Brigadier? Who is Jas. G. Blunt? and by what fa tality has he received a commission which belongs to better men? Who is Jas. G. Blunt ? and why did the administration press this unqualified insult upon the people ot Kansas? Finally who is Jas. G. Blunt? Where did he come from ? Why was he appoint ed a Brigadier? How do You Like It ? This is a ques tion which loyal men are asking one another now-a-days,when Kansas appoint ments are discussed. Fred Emery, the cold-blooded murderer of Phillips, at Leavenworth, in 1856, is the latest one, being appointed wagon-master at Fort Leavenworth. A border-ruffian secess ionist stands altogether the best chance for preferment at the present time in Kansas. Atchison Champion. The Vermont troops in the army of the Potomac are to be envied by all their fel low soldiers1. Their State has opened a bank account with each one of them, and regularly passes to his credit $7 a month. This sum may be checked for by the vol unteer if he is a single man. If married, it ia paid to his family. If permitted to remain undrawn by tht State Treasury for six months, the rate of six per cent is allowed on it. John C. Heenan. thn TnnnF?ofr flvm.

The ob- Mark The. o Expelled secessionists are beginning to sneak back into Kansas, and those who re mained here, cowed into silence, are gain ing courage to snarl. There rs a way by which you may know them. Throw up treason to them, and they will prate aboac the Democratic party. They will tell you wai ueraocraw are in the army f ghtmg for the Unien,and that the President has had to call to his aid a Democratic "Secretary of War.

I sustaining the Government, as "Abolition ist, lire long, 11 theiE necks are not wrung, we may expeet to see the whole herd of banished traitors crawling out of their dark, slimy boles, like snakes on tf warm morning, and hiss out at those who are fighting the battles of the country " Abolitionists !"

Their chief oro gau is called the Leavenworth Inquirer. The Atchison Union is trying hard t keep up with them. The Junction City Frontier was of the " same run of shad j5 but, poor thing, it "waxed out'veny sud' denly, and its co-workers are sadlylament ing its untimely end. The Inquirer has for one of its publishers, a man who urg ed the mobbing and hanging of Free State men, in the dark days of Kansas, and who, but a year ago, supported a city ticket in Atchison, composed principally of men who are now ia the Secesh armyc Another of the publishers, after" winko ing out" at Lecompton, with the Buchan an Dynasty, published a secession paper at Atchison, less than a year ago, but wa9 compelled to suspend, in consequence of all its supporters being banished for trea son. The editor is a-man who was gotten up expressly for'a traitor, and he-fills the bill exactly. Such are the creatures who are. snivel ling about Democrats fighting "for the country, and assisting to carry on the Government, and who are continually snarling out the (to them) opprobrious ep ithet of " Abolitionist !" at patriotic men. Mark them ; for the time is coming when you will be compelled to do something more than mark! White Cloud Chief. Look at Home. When once a home is regarded by the young as only a place to eat and sleep in, the work is begun that ends in a, downward career. Young peo- pie must have a relaxation somewhere ; if they do not find it at their own hearth stones it will be sotight at other and per haps less profitable places. Therefore at night make the homestead delightful' with a'l those little arts that parents -ought- to understand. Don't repress the buoyant ' spirits of your children; half an hour of merriment round the firelight of a home blots out the remembraace of maay a care during the day, and the best safeguard they can take with them into the world is the unseen influence of a bright little ner sanctum. m- The following rules of order have beea adopted in a schsolroom somewhere down east, we believe. They are very strict, especially the second : Ne chewiag tobacco in school htura. No kissing or hugging the girls in the entry. No snapping apple seeds . at the master. No catting benches with jaokknive& No novels allowed to be brought to school.
