Novel Ceremony. On June 21st, at an early hour, a ceremony of a very peculiar character occurred at the West Bromwich t-Dg., Cemetery : "At about 6 o'clock Mr George Wilkes, an octogenarian politican, who had taken a leading part in affairs of a local nature for many years, accompanied by a few private friends, assembled for the purpose of laying the Jirst -stone of the grave intended for the reception of liis remains wbeu he has shuffled off this mortal coil." Mr. T. P. Brougb, the Fidas Achates of the expectant deceased, was selected to perform tho ceremony, and was pre^fented with an . /rlnviavnl/. " 1 ?1*^1- ' ' 1 ?? vmuvi(ivo oiivoi wiiicq Dtiu oecn exy>rcBBedly manufactured for the occasion. Mr. Brough, having received the tsowcl, after the usual formalities had been performed, read the following address: "In the name of the rate payers of West Bromwich, I do hereby lay the first brick of the tomb of our dearly beloved and esteemed patriot, Goorgc Wilkes, and wc beseech Thee* O Lord, that the little time ho ?as to live in this world he may live in the tear and the love of God, so that in his last, moments he may be able to say, "all is well, all is well'' and may his noble spirit ascend to that place where i8 love and harmony?Heaven and hft ablfi in nvnlaitn '*<>11 5- ^ .V - nil in wull.

In a Scotch church, a descendant of Nabal having put a crown piece into "the plate," instead of a penny, and, starting at its white and precious faoe, asked to have it back, was refused; In once, in for ever. "Awccl ,awcel," grunted he, "I'll get credit for it in heaven":? "No, nn," said Jeems, .the doorkeeper, "ye'll get credit only for the penny." flfeiv^papero, Tlieir Cost, etc* . A Houston editor, writjngto Col. Thrasher, gives the following items of expense incident to publishing a paper in the Trans-Missis^ppi: * uTlic press of this department is laboring under burdens that I almost fear will siuk it.? My telegraphing bills amount to from $600 to $800 per Week. My paper costs me lromt'^18 to $26 per ream, (24x80,) ip Rpecie. lLam paying $4 per 1,000 ems for composition^. and .printers cannot live on that. Tlio Newi\ and Telegivpk have boen forced to comp to a specie'1 basis, but whether they will be suskainod by the people it is impossible to say yet. It. was their only alternative. Even to-day ' a lot of paper is offered me for which $35 w demanded Reduce this to currency at ? 35 for one,' and you will see the impossibility of keeping accounts in Confederate notes with our cusibniary notations." ' ' "An "Old Printer," in a plotter to the j Charleston Courier, says : "Newspapers are by far too cheap !. Nothing we enjoy costs so little. A few years hack, a daily paper was worth an elegant pair of boots ! Twelve bushels corn, pftas or potatoes was an equivalent! Sixty dozen eggs, thirty pounds of butter, seventy-five pounds of j lard or bacon would barely pay a yearV subscription. But, lo! now, the case is reversed. This.is|all wrong. The paper shonld command a support, to the editor and tis employ,i ees. hnd allow at least twenty per cent, profit tjl^hipleuiab materials, &e. To do this, the price should be. in proportion to pverything needed by the publisher, and no sensiejb or i just man will complain. The incchanid and farmer will pay readily, because fully abiif A farmer work'ng one horse can make scyentyfivc barrels ol corn, which, at $50 pen "bushel ?aud it is no.w even hicrher? brinmi SlR.!7'.fif?

Snrelv, Mr. Editor, you arc losing money and living on short rations!" The Fayettevillc (N. C.) Obsr.rrrr savs: Not being able to procure suitable qualities of glue and molasses to make "composition rollers" for our presses, we ordered some from Nassau, through a friend in Wilmington. The. cost is $1,>>82,88 for a barrel of molasses and a ; keg of 44 1-2 lbs. of Irish glue, of which . $77o J is.for freight of the barrel and keir ! The I q freight is required in advance at Nassau, so that if the vessel had been lost, we should have lost that as well as the goods. Fortunately the ship arrived safely a day or * two ago. JJoforo the war the article would have cost us $40. Inferior articles wou'd cost about $3,000. Thus it is with nil printing expenses?from 5 to 40 times, averaging more than 10 times the old rates?whilst even our new prices of subscription will he but five times what they were before the war. ... - ?+?? Growing Civil and Civilizbd.?On the first advance of the Yankee army from Memphis, says the Mobile Advertiser of the 12tb, it is said that Gen. Forrest sent a flag oftriue to ask upon what plan the war was to he waged ?if the black nag was meant to be raised and the Yankee battle cry was to be "Fort Villow" and "No Quarter," he had no objection to meet me i anKee uoneraJ on Buch an issue, but he desired to know it beforehand. The reply was that the Federal Goneral had given strict orders to respect private property on the ftiarch, and that lie preferred to conduct the campaign on the huthane and civilized principles of modern warfare. He only required that his negro soldiers, if captured, slrould be treated as prisoners of war. Thus Gen. Forrest has taught one Yankee General the language of moderation and humanity. He has done it by forcible deeds and the terror of his name. The Government journals of Paris announce that the Mexican army is about to be rcinforcod by two thousand picked men recruited in Boligium by General Chapeller, formerly Director of the Royal Military School at Brussels. The organization of this corps ia begun and the men will sail fqr Mexico in September. It does not clearly appear whether this auxiliary force is to be under the orders of the French commander or of the Emperor of Mexico. CAMDEN DAILY JOURNAL' . SATURDAY WORW1NO, JULY 30.

Sugar un ait Illciuenl of Nutrition. vimurcn ana tuc lovers of sweetmeats will be under many obligations to Mr. Pridges Adams, who tells them that their taste lor sugar is sotnetbing more than a more appetite. In a recent paper on the '"Uses of sugar in assisting assimilation of food," he rays: "I know by experience I be difference in nutritions effects produced by the flesh of tired cattle on a inarch, and I hose slain in a condition arising from abundant food and boaltby exercise. In a fornicY case any amount might be eaten without. the satisfaction of hunger, while in the latter a smaller amount removed hunger.
