The past week baa boon one of taatly greater speculation In the purlieu, of poli tic, and "now, pot," of thit city, than any preceding nno for thia many a day.

Our ro- connoitoring forcot under Kilpatrick and Ploaianton have discovered the withdrawal of tho force, of Leo't Army, and our whnlo linot are again in column and advanoing.

To a Bride. The following letter waa wrltteo by an old friood to a young lady on tbo eve of ber edding day i I have sent yon a few fluwort to adorn the dying mnmonit of your tingle life. Tboy aro the gentlost types of a delicate and du rable friendship. They spring up by our tidos wbon othert bare deserted ut and they will be found watching over our gravel when thoto who thould cboritb havo forgot- tou us. It toemi that a past, to calm aod puro at yourt, thould expire with a kindred sweetness about it that tho flowert and tho mutio, kind friends and earnest words, should consecrate tho bour when a senti ment is pissing into a sacrament. The throe great stoget cf our being are tho birtb, Iho bridal, and Iho burial. To tho first wo bring only woaknoss for the last wo have nothing but dust I But horo, at the altar, when lifo joint Ufa, the pair come throbbing up to the holy man, whispering the deep promise that warm, each other', heart, to help on the life strug gle of caro aod duty. Tho beautiful will be thoro, borrowing new beauty from tho sceno. Iho gay and the frivolous they and their flounces will lonk solemn for onco. And youth will como, to gazo on all its sacred thoughts pant for j and ago will toller up to hoar the old words repeated, that to their own lives have given the charm. Somo will wcop over it as if it woro a tomb, and some laugh over it as if it wore a joke but two must stand by It, for it it fato, not fun thit is ovorlasting locking of thoir lives And how can you, who have quoonod it ovor to many bending forms, can you come down at last to tho frugal diet of a tingle heart Hitherto you'have boon a clock, giving your time to tbo world. Now, you are a watch buried in ono particular bosom, warming only hia broaat, marking only his hours, and ticking only to the boat of bit heart where lime and fooling ahull bo in unison. until these lower Ilea aro lost In that higher wedlock where all hearts are united around the central hoart of all. Hoping tbat calm and sunshine may hallow your clasped bands, I sink silently into a signature. Power of the Will. In to the aod so- it bas There is a kind of philosophy, or which may bo called a moral force, which often enables men to live abovo disease, and sur vive for many years, ravage, on l be const! lutiun, which, preying upon persons of loss strongth of miud, would buiry them to tbo grave In a very short time. We remember to bave heard of a neighbor In oarly youth named Hume. Ho ii a great miser, and very rich. He wa, apparently at the point of death. All his broad and fertile ncros had beon disposed of, aud ho onsnd to dio tuto to his lapor, who, knowing he had largo amount of silver and gold in bis house, said lo him aftor a pauso : "Well, Mr. Humo, what disposition will you inako your money 3" '-My money ! do you ex pect mo to give a-y my monoy too ? will not do It j" aod summoning to himaoll hat, undor the oircumsluncos, seomed be a superhuman energy, ho roso from his bod, dressed himsolf, broke the spell of dis oase,and livod somo years afterward, to ad vocuto the inn king of tin bats, as tbey would not soon wear out. Of two porsons having consumption, with apparently equal chances of lifo, the man who abandons bimsolf lo his fatt, hugs fire, and Is ufraid lo stir out of doors lest should tako cold, inevitably dies in a short time; the other, having force of character, indomitable determination, and a truor phi losopby, considers that life is worth striving for, that he oan but die anyhow, and, braving all winds aod weatbor, fights couragoously against his malady, and lives to bo an man. So it is in some forms of paralysia, rheumatism, and other disablements, exercisoofa true philosophy is manifested lo bravo rosnlvos to live down disoaso, live above it, and by sheer force of will brouk tbo spell which wat thrown over succumbing body j thus the mind may, oltoo doos become a power over human maladies more efficient than tho most famed medicines of tho apothecary .Hall'i Jour naloj Health. of of is be nign an Ira star be- be ings, il lo wield other life, part no their or shall great tbed oth ers, be used. not ueautiful EiTBAcr.

Tho following is tbo beautiful, und yet significant peroration of Senator Sumner's speech : "I know not if a Republic like ours can count oven now upon the cortain friendship of any European power, unless it bo tbe Re public of William Tell.

Thor bave abolished the slave code In that District ( abolished tbe pro-slavery conrli there, and established another, in which the colored people of the district arc admitted to all rightt and pririlegci onjojod by any.

Tbey bave pasted the Homestead law, ono slrongost and most in favor of froodom Tboy have established it as a sottlod role of tbo Government that no officer may sur render a slave, nor a sumo any porsoo to bo a slave. They have confiscated tho slaves of robels. Thoy havo selttod tbat rrbola aro to lake no advantage from the fugitive slave law. They bavo commonced the raising of no gro regiments for Ibe army.

They have formed a treaty with England, establishing a mutual right to search in op position lo ihe slave trade. Tbey bave passed a sentence of doalb upon a slave trador, and executed it.

Being the lermioui of two im portaut roads, and the most prominent point on another (tbe Charleston and Mem phis,) it became the most available place whore the rolling ttock of all could be re paired and nowitock manufactured.

High and low alike depend upon their male friends for every stitch in their dress. Tastes, of course, vary in different countries ; but I confess that it always provoked me lo see a tall, bearded follow acting the dressmaker, and a slender girl perlorming the functions of the groom. Several times I tried to intro duce reform among our own people ; but tbe very attempt lo allot lo each bis own proper woik produced such a storm discontent that I gave up Ibe matter despair. But, if il is provoking to see man pilfering the needle, it is still more aggravating lo see bim monopolise the laundry. Il is true the Abyssinians have as strong a prejudice against clean linen as against a clean face ; still, whenever, duriog the course of the year, the sbirior ahima require a little scrubbing, a big fel low, far belter adapted to plough the field performs the agreeable job. t This kind of work, which is the heaviest the heaviest men perform, admits of no comparison with the more onerous duties devolving oo tbe poor women. In a large household, wheie a good number females are required, some go early ihe morning to colleot wood, aod others to fetch water : while not a few busily . employ their bauds io cleaning the stables. or in bread, skiro. dims, aoa won breakfast. To remove tbe husks from the rrain before it is washed acd ground, is regarded by all as a most tiring job. We usually employ two lo relieve each other at tbis occupation : out ins unieei n. lives, who have no tucb eonttdera tbe j ti0n, sometimes force their female servants of I or ,laves lo stand over tbe rude mortar and the, the f until their arms become almost paral yzed, and they are ready to drop from aheer exuaustion ana languor nanutr ingt envng tht lalatian tn byettiua. Lbt no man who has neglected to im prove his mind In youth, complain tbat Is made a dtjidge and nndef ling In malarer years. Wb award Ihe palm to charity and self sacrifice but, above all, let os award it to moderation for il is ihe greatest social virtue. Thompson Agricultural Fair.
