"I can break him of it," said Agricola, "ifyon will give me leave." j "Thou art permitted," said the. honest farmer; and we will let Agricola tell the story in his .own words. "There was a.rani on the farm," sajd Agricola, "as notorious for butting as Wolf was for sheep-stealing, and who stood in as much need of moral suasion as the dog. I shut-Wolf up in the barn with this old fellow, and the consequence was that the dog never )6oked a sheep in the face again. Tho ram broke o very bone in his bod v. literallv.

GAMDliN DAILY JOURNAL. TCTESfiAY ?][OR!YIKG, A5JG. B<5' The Richmond Sentinel, which, among uowspaper men, is understood to be tho official journal of tho ndViinistration*, has recently published a series of articles' on the subject of our relations with tho Yankees and 1 oijior kindred topics, tlmt have attracted much attention, aud provoked no little criticisid. The mails are so irregular that we seldom receivo the 'Sentinel, although jt is one of our exchanges, and, with Ylie exception of tho first and third of tho series which wero republished by a Georgia cotomporary, we have seen in extenso none of the articles referred to. Tho sncoud, if we aro to. judge by a specimen paragraph cpio-* tod by the Charleston Ilercury, is the most objectionable ol all in its lone (though theyare all bad enough.) .but we dul'ef any comments we may have to raako ljjuii 11. Hutu we can Roe me wnolo article. The first ajticle which, we would fain believe, was written more as a joke than in sober, earii%pt, broadly intimates that the Southern-States might bo induced to rounito with the United States upon two conditionsi viz: tho consolidation of the New Knghind States into one, and substantial guaranties for the protection the jyglit of propo. ty in slaves. Tho proposition, if made iu eafuest, would seeottoo monstrous to be entertained for a mernont; but as we are not without our fears on th^t score wo will take an early opportunity.of recurring to it. Our object at present is merely to introduce to tho consideration of our rendor*?ooe or two paragraphs from tho third article. "\Vc would publish tho whole of it ,f?e could, but it would occupy more 1 space than we cau spare- But for the extracts. Tho writer, after defending tin course of England and France, and urging that au alliance with them would bo more worth loss to us than one with tho United Slates, goes on to say. Now, before any foreign qation has intervened, is tho accepted tune for the North'to treat with us for peace.. Now, whilst, our action is untrammelled by foreign alliances, and whilst as yet, in matters of,trade and commerce icc can put het on the /doting of the most favored nation. * $'. n -Jt * * We too, are mudi exhausted, heartily sick of 'tbir: war, and without, foreign aid. would be ready to make peace on terms favorable to iho North, hi many re- i epeets our interests on the subject of peace are identical. Our money like that of the North, is 110110 of t he 1 best, and our soldiers lougfor the war to end in order 1 that they may retnrn to their homes,.to the endearments i of fainilv mid friends, of parents and wives and chil-t dron. sisters and brothers. So muclj sooir.sto.be said ''by ant hoi it}-," But the writer adds a suggestion "purely hia own.-1' j We will venture a funic rsuggestion purely our own j ' on thisj,subject. The people of the two Mictions are. j violently angored with each other. Tlp?y feci as if thorn never could he a cordial pence and good tooling hol-weon the North and lho South. But all wars will have nu end, all gustn of passion in limo blow over. Lot a truco of ninety days be-agrecd upon, let poaeo comruissionorn bo appoiuicd and delegated from either section ; let all our thoughts and words arid writing bo turnod on peuce; let us all cool down, 011 either fide, and look at the subjoct in a culna and practical wav tet our Government imitate the Government of Europe, dismiss pappion, prejudice and personal feeling-, and take1 the subject up solely and with a view to the public weal, the lasting interests of tbe.,people and the States of the whole Confederacy. "When wo have schooled ourselves Into this judicial temper, let the question be propounded, shall we not be willing to give to ihe North as the price of poaco an independence, which she can at onco securo to us, j all thoso preferences' and commercin^pdvanfrges, which yro would,06 willing to givo to on intervening nation, j thnt could but help us to win peace and independence, what wo would be ready to engage to give to an intervening power, that couid but help us to try and win' them. Our heart, our feelings say no; our reason, yos. I We have no space to comment upon extracts. In fact they scarcely need any. We (eel auro that tho "reason'1 of all trde Southerners will soy "no,"11 as prom^ly and as emphatically as their "feelings."
