It says lie resembles a lawyer who desires to pro long litigation rather titan obtain judg ment. The Times is amused at the calmness witli which he alludes to war as a “local disturbance." ——President Janrez has issued an order repealing the general edict of confiscation against the property of the Imperialists, lie lias, however, con fiscated and sold at public auction the finest printing establishment in Mexi co, that of Scnors Andrade by Esca lante, in the capita). -The Mobile register, of the 23d, ult., says : We understand, from a cot ton factor who lias just returned from an extensive tour through this State and Mississippi, that the prospects for a crop are much better than was antic ipated some three or four weeks hack. If the warm, dry weather continues, 1 the worms will entirely disappear. -Maximilian’s body has not left Queretaro. Ilis remains have been most shamefully treated. The coffin was placed in a filthy, dark bodega, and all who desired had free access. The glass cover was broken, his board and hair cut of!' and sold, as well as pieces of his blood-covered garments, and no one would recognize in the contents of the coffin the body of the murdered Maximilian. -John W. Murdaugh, of Ports mouth, Virginia, and George A. Bcr chert, of Savannah, Ga., ex-officers of the Confederate Navy, commissioned j by President Gutierrez to go to Car- j thagenia and investigate some roll- j hnrirfi PtiniiniltPi! tiiinn tho strainer IUyo, were killed by the populace, i Thou. L. Dornin, oi' Norfolk, Virginia. I and Pliillip Smith, of Fairfax county, Virginia, were wounded. All of them were at the time in the Granadian ser vice. Up to the 15th ult., no arrests were made, and no one dared to speak of the affair. The dead bodies were stripped of everything valuable. The ' dispatches and letters of protection I they bore were delivered next day to | the President of the State all bespat-1 tcred witli their blood. -Dr. Duke P. Blackburn derminis 1 himself safe under the recent amnesty j proclamation, took the necessary oath j before the United States Consul at Toronto, forwarded it to Washington, and reached houisville to the general joy of his friends on the 25th ult. We regret to say he was a little too quick in his movements, as 011 that very day the Secretary of the State officially de nounced him to the President as a de testable felon, and his oath was order ed to be returned to him. All this per secution of a hightoned gentleman arises from a foolish and malicious charge that lie had engaged with the Confederacy to infest the ‘-ioil ’ states with yellow fever during the war. -Secretary McCulloch lias issued an order forbidding clerks in the treas ury department furnishing information 1 to persons connected with the public ' press, unless by permission of the sec-j ■ etary or his assistants. A violation 1 of the rules subjects the offender to I dismissal. -Mexican advices say Vice-Ad miral Tegehoff is determined to return ;o Austria whether he receives the re mains of Maximilian or not.

Politeness—A Lovely Trait.— It is a graceful habit for children to say to euob other, “Will you have the goodness?” and “ I thank you.” We do not like to see prim, artificial eliil- j drcn ; there are few things we dislike so much as a ininealure beau or belie. Hut the habit of good manners by no means implies affectation or restraint'' It is quite as easy to say “Phase give me a piece of pie.” as to say “ 1 want a > piece of pic.” The idea that constant1 politeness would render social life too ' stiff and restrained springs from a fulso estimate of politeness. True politeness is perfect ease and freedom, it simply consists in treating others just as yon would like to he treated yourself. A person who acts from this principle will always be said to have "sweet, pretty ways with her.” It is of some consequence that your daughter should 1 Uuow how to enter and leave n room gracefully; but it is of prodigiously more consequence that she should be in the habit of avoiding w hatever is disgusting or offensive to others, and of always preferinjr <! !r pleasure to her pm n. The Fearless Advocate. Wo have rend with intense pleasure, says the Memphis Appeal, the splendid argument to the jury in the case of John II. Surratt, of Mr. Merrick, one of tho prisoner s counsel. Tho trial had continued more than fifty days, and is most memorable for many tilings; for the contrast it presents with that hideous mockery of justice, ending in murder, tTie trial of Mrs. Surratt be fore a Military Commission ; for the frightful amout of perjury on the pnrt of the witnesses for the Government; for the complete exposure of that per jury ; for tile eager anxiety to convict, by any moans whatever; for the lean ing of the court against the prisoner; for the extraordinary propositions of law of the prosecuting council; and for the fidelity and courage of the counsel for the defence. The great length of Mr. Merrick's speech pre cludes its publication by us; but we cannot resist the temptation to make the following extract, the words of which must have scorched like molten lead the consciences of some who heard them; and others who will have read them : “During our civil war, when tiiis land swarmed with petty emissaries of political and private malice, every pet ty scoundrel in every district had Ids spy at every table. 1 have learned to contemn them. If I had the power 1 would take every informer in the Uni ted States, unite them as one man, and swing them as high as Unman. Spies and detectives! The habits of imperial and kingly government have come to be the common daily food of American society. Seriously, gentlemen, not one of you during the last three years of the war could move without it being reported to some official; and they yet swarm in the laud ; ti.ey suck tho blood of tlie government; they have depleted its treasure. Even to-dnv. now in the timo of peace, these political emissaries are fed at the public board; while honest Industry bleeds and grows thin that thov may grow fat and rich. The system is iufamous; the tools arc more infamous than the system. ******* Feeling themselves grow weak in testimony they fall back—upon whom gentlemen of the Jury? Upon Mr. I '1 raver I inttal ennf^., I W.I* vi>„,r much surprised when I saw Cleaver come upon the stand ami recollected the denunciations I heard thundered asrainst him by the district attorney, and recollected the fact, which came out in evidence, that only a few weeks Since, for a crime w ithout a name, a verdict was brought in against that. man anil lie was sentenced. A new trial was granted on technical grounds mid ho stands for trial in this court now . I say a crime without a name. It is a prime not w ithout a name in law; it is a crime that cannot be named in this presence. Murder; not only murder hut murder most foul and unnatural. And the spirit of the ungrown girl j stands before the eternal throne as the accusing spirit of that accursed man. Why, gentlemen, has the United States government bowed itself to the low humiliation of using such an in instrument as that ? Rut that is not all of Mr. Cleaver. I do not talk of him lo you to get you to disbelieve him, for I believe your indignation arose as you saw him ou the staud. - I talk of him as part of that blessed chain. Not Cleaver alone, but Cleaver manipulated by Conover, and uot Conover alone, but manipulated by Ashley, incarcera ted in your jail with that most notori ous felon Conover, whose name lias passed into history, upon whose body yesterday grated the doors of the Al bany penitentiary, incarcerated with this man Conover the schemer, the de viser of all the perjury of the military commission, passing through the sciue of the office of the chief of the military bureau, Conover, the tutor of the ruau who sits there beside the counsel— UioKoe.l . at..* m.i._a Montgomery who helped to give part of that infamous testimony that stains with dishonor too records of my na tive country. Conover, the vile, the tool of Ashly, scarcely better. This man, manipulated by Conover, brought out by Ashly, dug up from the purlieus of the jail’s infamous depths, is put oil that stand to ask you to take his oath against the life of that poor boy. Oh ! gentlemen, gentlemen, thank God, al though counsel may forget sometimes which is due to a jury, a jury such ns this cannot forgot what is due to them selves ns men. Kpurii it, gentlcineu, indignantly; not only disbelieve, but spurn it. * » * * Win* of you is there that was in the city of Washington, who will ever for get that fatal day when the tolling of the hells reminded you of the sad fact that tiie hour had come wlieu those people were to be hung? Your honor [referring to Justice Wylie who was at the time sitting by the side of Jud>C' Fisher on the bench] and in your praise ite it said, raised your judicial hand to prevent that murder, hut it was too weak. The storm heat against your arm, and it fell powerless in the tempest. Yon remember that day, gentlemen. Twenty-four hours for preparation.

The beart-hroken child—the ! poor daughter—went there crazed, and stretched upon the steps that lead to i the executive chamber ; she raised her hands in agony and prayed to every one that came. ‘‘Oh. God! let me have ao | e.ess, that I may ask for hut one day for my poor mother: just one day!” Did she pet there ? No. And yet, says the counsel, thpre was no one to prevent stress being had. Why didn't you prove it ? Oh. God ! If such a thing could have been proved, how would I not have rejoiced in the fact; for when reflecting upon that sad, unfortunate, wretched hour in the history of my country—an hour when I feel she was so much degraded. I could weep until the paper he worn away with the con tinual dropping of mv tears. Who j stood between her and the seat of mer cy? Has conscience .lashed the chief i of the bureau of military justice?— | Goes memory haunt the secretary of I war? Or is it true that one who stood 'between her and executive clemency now sleeps in the dark waters of the Hudson, whilst another died by his violent hands in Kansas. The Cross of Love, This is a reproduction of an cxquls ite piece of poetry which circulated widely a few years ago. hut the beauti ful and true sentiment cannot he repea ted in too many or varied forms Oh. I was sad and weary: wearied with the conflicts of life, with its heavy toil, with its hitter strifes. I reasoned with myself and thought they might lie trial tests of my faitli and love. Then I looked around upon my fellow-mor tals, and thought not one of them had as much to endure as I had. Some friends were taken from me by death, others by estrangement worse than acntii. iinu 1 ivnr, otiugcu io ion ior my daily bread. Oh, hoiv 1 would change places with any of my friends, their burdens could be easily borne, but mine were too heavy, my cross 1 could not bear. As 1 mused, the angel of sleep passed by, and the breeze wafted by bis wings toll soothingly upon my spirit and I slept. Soon n jol’l ntul uilror llirKl Kniiinpri lo surround me. The sweetest and most beautiful music filled the uir. A form of angelic beauty approached me. llis brow sliotie with a clear, resplendent light; his face was calm and so radiant, so Godlike, that l tcit like one entran ced. I could neither speak nor move. As lie came near, lie gently waved his hand and said, “follow me. I am the way.” Involuntarily I arose and follow ed. I seemed to float through the blur ether, and most delicious fragrance till ed the balmy air. After traversing what seemed to be illimitable space, lie stopped and addressed me thus: "Mor tal, 1 have witnessed thy conflicts and struggles. Thou think'st the cross giv en thee loo heavy to bear: lay it aside, and take one of thine own choosing, ' at the same time pointing to a place where lay myriads of crosses of divers size and lashion. I felt inexpressibly happy ns I laid aside my cross and looked about to se lect one to supply its place. Soon my eyes fell upon a small but brilliuut look ing one composed of jewels and pre cious stones, and 1 said, “ I will take this, it must be easy to bear.' But soon l began to totter; tlie weight was loo nmcli, and 1 said, “Oh. I must take it off, I cannot walk.' Gently he said, “Try again." Then 1 selected one ol gold, elaborate ware, thinking surely 1 could beam golden cross. But that too pressed so heavily upon me that I was obliged to lay it down. Then the au gol smiled mournfully upon me, and said "Don't weary, try again.” .This time 1 selected one composed of most beautiful flowers, this is for me the bur den must be light. But it soon made its liid-sorrows known to me; thorns pierced my flesh, and 1 cried in anguish : “This one I may not bear! ’ and 1 said “Oh! why ueed I have any cross? 1 do well enough without." Then the angel gently answered, “Mo cross no crown." Sadly I gazed, but tho ungel said. “Fear not; there must he one here to suit your need." Slowly pass ing along, I espied a plain unpretending lookeng cross with the word LOVE engraved upon it in letters of gold, I exclaimed. “Oh I know 1 can bear this one!" As 1 raised it. a smile of ineffable sweet ness illumed the face of the angel, and I found I had chosen “my own old cross again." But Oh! how differently it seemed from what it used to; it fitted exactly, and I joyfully acknowledge it the best for me to bear. Then tlie angel said, “For He so lov ed thee that he gave his only begotten Son that thou, by bearing the cross giv- j ett thee, might inherit eternal life." Willi grateful heart and suffused with tears, I looked to thank tlie angel, but he had vanished, and I awoke. But what a lesson I had learned. Surely tho cross “my Father" gave me. was the best. With grateful and con tented heart I thanked the giver, never again doubting that the way lie had pre pared and appointed was the one for me; ever preying that whatever he thought necessary for the discipline of ntv life, I bear with patience, and trust in “111111 who doeth all things well.'' —Christian Register. Isay* Twenty-eight births of twins have occurred in Fanola county. Miss., PI,;! t,r,s The Raid into Fuljton County. Wp sr( informed that on Tuesday, the 10th of Sept., nnd during the pro gress of the Circuit Court in our neigh boring county of Fulton, an armed l body of men, some twenty iii number, who claimed to be Missouri Militia, i entered the little town of Salem, charged upon the court house at full i speed, with drawn pistols, and sur I rounding the house, held the entire ; court. Judge, attorneys, and citizens in ■ attendance, under guard for some time, j An explanation of their conduct being asked, the lieutenant in command stated j that tl#y were in search of horse thieves, robbers and desperadoes gen erally. After tho lapse of half an hour or thereabouts. Judge Powell asked and obtained leave to iro out o!’ the lines they had formed, and take with him the attorneys in attendance, vouch ing for tlie good standing, &c„ of the latter. The citizens in attendance were retained under guard for sometime. The party, after remaining in the town for several hours, mounted their horses and taking with them Judge E. C. Hunter, an old" and respectable citi zen of the vicinity, a prisoner, left the town. On Tuesday night, the same party, having with them several citi zens under guard charged upon the res idence of Mr. A. J. Smith, who lived some four miles from Salem ; and on approaching the house about midnight, eith r intentionally or accidentally, it is not known which, one or two pistol shots were tired by the party—which, with ttie noise, it is supposed, alarmed Mr. Smith, who sprang from his bed and attempted to make his escape from the back door, when he was fired upon by the whole party, some ten or twelve shots taking effect. Smith ran a short distance and fell dead. On ascertain ing whom they had killed, these ruf fians pretended to be quite sorry for what had happened, saying they had j no charge agaiust Smith, but were ex pecting to find at his house another I 111 <11, mi nuiu mrv wurc MiTJtruiiiiig. Judgo limiter and the other citizens under arrest were released the next morning, without one word of expla nation as to the cause of their impri sonment. And this band of murder ing Militia took up toe line of march eastward through Fulton countv, and ! n is rmnorea that two outer mf-n ten victims to these blood hounds the next day. We ijre quite sure such conduct is \ wholly unauthorized, un warranted, and is certainly outrageous in the extreme. (s a baud of irresponsible cut-throats, claiming to be militia of a neighboring State, to be allowed to invade our State, outrage our courts of justice, arrest and imprison our good citizens, murder un armed and helpless men, and run roughshod over the country with im punity? The affair certainly demands an investigation, and that the guilty parties be brought t.) justice.—Bates ville Times. riS Horrors ok War.—Since the crea tion of the world fourteen thousand millions of human beings have fallen in tiic battles which man has waged against his fellow-creature—man. If this amazing number of men were to hold each oilier bv the hand at arms length, they would extend over four teen millions five hundred and eighty lliree miles ground and would encircle the globe on which wc dwell, one hun dred and eight times! If we allow the weight of a mau to be on an aver age one cwt.
