An Amusing Account of the Origin of the Term. Origin of the Term. CHAPTER I. Near tlie camp of the old 'Pennsyl vania Buektall Regiment, In Virginia, early in' the war, lived ail old aristo cratic, exclusive and 'pompous Virgin ian, iu true baronial style. His mansion', of very old age, was .made of import ed brick, his chimneys were tall and the rooms were tall and pleasant. The chief attraction of the old place, how ever, was the grounds that surrounded the mansion. Large trees gave luxuri aut.shadc, and the underbrush in, por tions ot the grounds afforded shelter for rabbits and other small game., There were walks, and orchards, ,and arbors, and the whole bore such ascene of gen eral pefit-efulness and repose that it was no wonder tho wild' Bucktails were charmed with tho prospect, and anxious to penetrate' into a spot which gave such promise of enjoyment. The Bucktails'were not the most at tractable soldiers. Thercame from the stepplng-oft" place the Wilderness bf Pennsylvania M'Kean, Potter, Forest and Tioga counties: and they obtained their name, which clung to them during" the entire "war, through a fancy of Col.' ivane, Drotner oi tne. Artie explorer, who beeanft,Uiplcrnrraniert-,He re cruited the regiment in the early days of 1S01 (beginning on the day of the arrival of the news of the fall of Sum ter) from the back-woodsmen, who were famous marksmen. They were all deer hunters, and as a designation, each man was furnished with the tail .of a buck. by Colonel Kane, and when they marched from Camp Curtiu with the bucktails in their caps it was a novel sight. Colonel Charles X. Kiddie, ot Philadelphia, was made the Colonel,' and Colonel Kane the Lieutenant Col onel of the' regiment both men noted for their short attenuated forms; Xeith- er was scarcely more than five feet high, and their combined, weightwas less than two hundred and twenty pounds. It may readily be sucssed that these soldiers had little ,respect for, Virginia iinstocracy, and the.teutpolcs had hard ly got settled in the ground before a noted rider named well, Smith shonlT dered his deer-killer and started out on a little expedition. lie was a Sergeant of immense size, named "The Big Ser geant," He made a straight march for the, old Virginian's manor. Now, the old gentlemen had many pets about the grounds, 'and anions them a tame' crow which he'valued very highly. He also had tame rabbits, doves, etc. 'The Ser geant climbed; the stone wall, and drop ped himself and his gun inside of the grounds. The llrst thing his eye struck was the tame crow, who unconcerned ly Hew near him, and alighted onallmb and began to caw' at him. The Ser geant put his riile to his shoulder and banged away. Sir. Crow came fluttering to the ground. The soldier; reloaded his gun, leaned it against the wall, ana went to get his game, Instantly there came running from the house, in a high state of excitement, the' old Virginian, and when he saw that his pet crow had been killed his rage had no bounds. He rushed for the Sergeant's gun, and swearing that Ife wouIdri'tThave' given the crow for the whole Yankee army, 'vowed that he would blow the soldier's' brains out, With this he brought the piece to acock and glanced along the barrel. The Sergeant begged 'for 'hfs llfei' and the Virginian swore he would fcike It, The Virginian Anally thought of a compromise, and with a look half be tween amazement and rage told the Ser geant that he must eat that, raw crow. In vain the other protested ; the Vir ginian Insisted on flie price of his ad versaryVs life. So the Sergeant pulled off feathers and began to gag and eat. " How do you like crow?" hissed the Virginian through his teeth. The only answer the other gave wa to beg to be let ofl". He was son-' he had shot the crow: didn't know that'ltr was a tame one and d he wouldn't do such a thing again. Finally the'old man took the gun from iW aim, and told the Ser geant he needn't eat any more. His heart full of joy, the' soldier threw'the crow upon the ground, and said : " Well; I kin cat crow, but I doit like it." The story might stop here if It was only to show tho origin of tho phrase, hut the rest of It is the best. CHAPTER II. The old Virginian, after surveying his dead pet for an instant in n sorrow ful manner, returned the gun aud started for his mansion. The other quickly brought his piece to his shoul der, and called out: " Hold on thero, mister.'-' " What do you want?" 'asked the oth- field a beail" er, as. he tnrned and beheld drawn on hitni " i "'I'd like to liave you eat' the vesfb'f this crow." The old man fumed and fc'wore, and tore, about in a frantic manner" saying he'd be d 1 if he "would, and that he, didn't want any ot the yijung manjs jokes. The' cocking or.the gun, and the assurance on' the part of' the soldier that he would certainly put a' ball through the old man's" shoulder. unless he complied with the demand, induced the- Virginian to retrace his steps "Xow,"said the, Sergeant, "I want; you to eat the rest of that crow, and'no nonsense.' X punch of the Title on'the Bhoulde of the old' man roused him to a quick sense of . his position, and picking up the crow he endeavored tq hlte.it. Hefgrew pale, the perspiration stood, upon his face, he trembled like a .terrier, his mouth watered, his eyes tilled, he gagged, and it seemed a physical im'- possibillty for- lilmto touelt the crow. The Sergeant compelled him to take a bite, and it was the only .one he did tike, for bis breakfast, came, up. rap idly to protest against crow that.the soldier relented and told him to "git" and never to trouble a BucktaU again, Here'wduld seem lo be another' p1 ropi er place' to end this story, biit there Is still .another chapter., CHAPTER II. CHAPTER III. The next day, the old, Virginian, smarting under the indignities he suf fered, in not only having his pet crow killed, but being compelled to' cat .i pbr- tion of it went to the headrjuarter's bf the Bucktails and' made complaint to the colonel against, tliQ'.big.Sergcarit. The colonel at once sent an orderly for Sergeant Smith, rightly upposin, he must be the person, referred to. He obeyed tiie summonsat briccJ. lie pushed thedoor'of the tent aside and'entered the presence, snapping' hi heel3 togeth er and standing erect in the.posltion of attention,'' he brought ,hU right, hand quickly to theivisor of hi$miitary cap, and gave the customary salute to.Jfis, colonel " 'SeS'i's'A p?iiU'jJc0JP.,,SJulfi? JfiT gravely, "do. you know that gentle man ?"'pofntIn!f to the bid Virginian. "'Yes', sir,"' -promptly 'answered' the' other. 1 ! -"Howtlidyou become acquainted with him,sergeant?''

Remarkable Solar Phenomenon. !. on... j A telegram' from Lexington, Ky'., to the 'Cincinn'ati Commerctal, under date of August '30, makes the following statement:!. " A, .solar phenomenon of wondrous magnificence was witnessed here, to-; day. Shortly after 12' o'clock a thin, hazy halo was observed about the sun, which was shining in a 'cloudless sky. Gradually' this halo assumed a'bright yellow tint; -iml then, one alter another, fiye rainbow-hued circles, enveloped themselves around the sun. Soon myr iads of glittering globes, apparently half aii Inch in diameter, were ejected frorii'the variblts rings. Some came iri to'view slowly and sailed southward in a -straight line, while others shot forth at a tangent, dike, the, balls of a Koman caudle. All of .them gleamed, with an intense white, light, whicli gre.w less In tense as they approached the earth, and totally disappeared at apparently the hight of half a mile. The display lasted over two hours-, and' wis witnessed by every person ini tho city, and created great alarm among the, ignorant and superstitious. The only other notice able phenomenon was a marked reduc tion of temperature." The Wrong Man in the Right Place.

To this great body of intelli gent men, we wish to state some great and all-imixirfint facts facts which the canvassers for Greeley do not even deign to' consider, biit which ought to place the administration 'of Grant as one' of the most-successful recorded in history. 1. Under Grant the Union is restored, To take this fact -fully in, remember thflUlui't J8e83ah"6.' JBeradcrjitieH partV charged that dwigreywas a "frag ment;" that the acts of reconstruction were void, and the.country dismember- ed.. .In, .proof,; read the .resolutions, pf the Democratic Convention, and the letters.of Blair. Xow the Democratic Convention acknowledges the Union is 'restored arid'the country dt peace. The Democratic party denies all that It Said in JSCS, and assumes, a matter not to be denied, the triumph of Grant's admin istration. That is a fact. 2. The,country is at peace, at home and abroad. When Grant came in the Ku-Klux were ravaging the'Southern States 'anil if'not suppressed' the' ne- rrocs would not merely have been de prived of votes; but they would have been .deprived of all civil rights, and leftjn a condition equivalent to slavery. Xow, the Jvu-KIux are put down, and socictyls as peaceful and orderly in the Southern States as' it is' iu Ohio. So al so', we have peace abroad. Grant came in-as President, finding a dangerous niui embarrassing question, with Eng land., Bit a. treaty .of .arbitration has been, made which is, likely to settle, not only for iis, but for all natlonsa great international question. It is certain that "we shall have damages for the reb el privateers fitted out in England, and we shall settle the question for all fime. Hence, Grant has. partly, carried out the dea he, announced in the beginning. " Let us have peace," said he, and peace at home and abroad weiiave. Peace has come to the South by the suppres sion of the Ku-Klnx. Peace abroad comes by an open, manly vindication of our claims, against GreatBritaiu. Peace has-.comcj in Grant's administration.- That. is aact.. 3. Taxes have becn.reduced iu Grant's administration. All the internal rev enue duties, except those on whisky and tobacco, have been taken off substanti ally, and the whisky tax has been re duced'two thirds. The income tux has been taken oft' 4 If we take up the whole list pf. taxes in 18C7,and compare them witu what wc have now, we shall lind the rate of taxation has been reduced more than one third. The fixes have been reduced. That is a fact. 4. The'public debt has been reduced. It has been reduced 12 percent, in three years a.fact.wlijcli never before occur red in history. Iu Grant's administra tion the public debt has been reduced three hundred millions ! And now it Is so' much reduced we can pay it off if we'-think that best in ten or fifteen years. A vast reduction of the public debt is.a fact., 5. The currency of the country is sta ble, uniform, and abundant. Since the adoption ot tlie Constitution iu 17SS, we have never had'a currency as good and abundant as to-day1. Grant's adminis tration might have upset all that by in sisting upon specie payments, or repeal ing the national bank act, which the Democrats say is all wrong, but pre ferred the welfare of tlie people and the prosperity of the country. It kept the currency stable and-uniform, and every business avian in the country has reason' to thank the administration for doin The currency is good, uniform, and abundant. That.is'U fact C-;T1ic industryof the country has in creased as it never Increased before. Looking to the increased production of ron, wool, and cotton we should think it'withiu bounds to say that the produc tions' of 'the country in nil those de partments .which are properly called the departments of industry lias increased llfty per cent, in the last live years. In line, the industry Is increasing at a mosf enormous rate. If the 'tariff had been suddenly reduced, If the currency'had been reduced, If specie payments had been made by the administration, all tills would have been checked and all branches of business thrown into con fusion. In one word; it is the courage and good sense of the administration which has alone preserved the stablllty and prosperity of Industry. Industry has Increased under Grant's adminis tration at a most rapid rate. That Is a fact. The commerce of the country is greatly enlarged. The aggregato of ex ports ami imports execeus ny lar any thing known in this country. The for eign commerce of this country has in creased fortyper cent since Grant canio iu. Xothing llko'lt'ha been known In this country. Hcmeiober this Is under a high tariff, which has operated lu fa vor of both industry and commerce, Commerce has increased. That Is a fact. Now, gentle reader, please lo look at theso facts and ask yourself whether j ou would like to have them reversed t Whether you would like to sec such ideas as' Mr.'Greeley,and Mr-Pendleton,'iind Mr: Blair, and ,Mr- Welles (that .line specimen of a reformer) proclaimed, adopted? If they had becn tliU coun try would have .been a scene of com mercial disasters and rnln. You know that as well as we do. Why then should you for one moment risk such an expe riment? Why should yon risk any thing on such a wild, reckless, vision ary as Greeley? His theory of finance is to put a placard on the Treasury, "Specie payments resumed." Ills the ory bf protection is to ait off com merce. His theory of government is' to let every State or tounty secede when it pleases.- 'His'theory of law is' to par don all, all criminals. His theory of politics is to join with Tweed, Sweeny, and Satin in any imaginable scheme of political villiany. Is this a country in which such a 'man can be successful ? Is it possible that' this great nation can ex alt mountebanks, or be led by-the low est class ol intriguers, or be swindled by political gamesters? We think not; and we think the ides of Xovembcrwill "bring a lesson at once decisive and salu E. D. M. MORROW, August 24th. Jefferson's Grief at His Wife's Death. The story of Jefferson's grief at the loss of his wife, as Mr. Parton tells it In the Atlantic, is very touching., Before the Marquis de Chasellux had been gone from Montlcello many hours, the sixth child of Thomas and Martha Jefferson was born, making the number of their living children three. It was death to the inpther. She lingered four months, keeping her husband and all the house hold in what he termed "dreadful sus pense."' lle'tbok'his 'tum witfi liis'sts- ter and witli her sister in sitting up 'at night. With his own bauds he admin istered her medicines and her drinks. For four mouths he was cither at her bedside or at work in a little room near the head of her bed, never beyond call. His eldest daughter, a little girl of ten, Dut maturer than her age denoted, nev er lost the vivid recollection ot her fa ther's tender assiduity during those months. When the morning of Sep tember Ctli dawned,, it. was evident the mother had not many.hours to live, and all the family ga'tiiere'd around lier bed. Thirty years after, six of the female servants of the house enjoyed a kind of honorable distinction at Montlcello, as "tlie servauts. who were in the room when Mrs. Jefferson died" such an impression dii the scene leave upon the minds of the little secluded communi ty. It was-a tradition among the slaves, often related by these six eye witnesses, that the dying lady gave her husband "many directions about many- things tliat she wanted done;' but that when she came to speak of the children shecould not command herself lor some time'. At last she said she could not die contented if she thought her children would ever have a stepmother; and, her husband, holding her hand, solemnly promised that he would never marry ain. Toward noon, as she was about to "brcathe'her last, his feelings became uncontrollable, lie almost lost his senses. His sister, Mrs. Carr, lead him ;ering from the room into his li brary, where he fainted, and remained so long insensible that thefamiiy began to fear that he, too, had passed away. They brought in a pallet and lifted him upon it. He revived only td a sense of immeasurable woe. His daughter Mar tha, who was to be the solace of all his future years, ventured into the room that night; and even then such was the violence of his grief, that she was amazed and confounded. For three weeks he remained iu that apartment, attended all day and night by this little Child. He walked, as she related, al most incessantly all day and all night, only lying down now and then, when, he was utterly exhausted, upon the pal let that had been hurriedly brought while he lay In his fainting fit. When at last he left the house he would ride on horseback for hours and hours, roaming about in the mountain roads, n the dense woods, along the paths least frequented, accompanied only by his daughter, "a solitary witness" she says, to many a violent burst of grief, the remembrance of whicli has consecrated particular scenes beyond the power of time to obliterate." The Metis—The Officers to Blame. Xow, that all the circumstances con nected with the 31etis disaster are known the journals are less reserved In their, criticisms of the conduct of her captain and officers, and the general verdict is that they were to blame. Tlie tone of comment is as lollows : The evidence, thus far, leaves the fault of the collision with tho management of the Jfctis. Still more heinous neglect occurred af ter the vessels met. An immediate and thorough search should have been made for possible leaks. There was a farcical examination, not by thecapt-iin, butby the mate and engiiiecrand they report ed nothing of consequence. It was ful ly fifteen minutes after the collision be fore anyone seemed to be aware that tlie Metis had a hole in her hull. The dis coverer of this remarkable fact was the llneer. Where again was tlie cap tain? How does It happen that he, the highest responsible officer on board, lelt this all Important fact to be found out at second or third hand ? Had the leak been promptly discovered the Me tis might be afloat to-day. Mattresses and blankets might have been stuffed into the hole, the leak partially stopped before It had gained too much head way, and witli the pumps going, she could have been kept from sinking, and beached like the Bristol. Another journal says the collision was the result of gross carelessness. After the disaster, tho officers and crew of the vessel behaved like cowards, and there was not the proper life saving appara tus on board necessary to" the safety of the passengers in case of emergency. Hardy sailors, used to all wlnds.and weather, expert swimmers,stolo stealth ily away from tho sinking ship In the life-boat, and left ioor, weak women and helpless children to save themselves as best they could. Another paper thinks that If Capt. Burton was blameless in respect to the collision, his conduct afterward was reckless to tho last degree. Whatever the official judgment mav be. It will be mposslble to persuade mankind that when the vessel was struck only live miles from shore, and was able to keep in motion and obey her helm for more than an hour afterward, every creature on board could not have been brought safely to land.

To-ay he finds himself deserted, or so nearly so that his Republican followers could be accommodated in an old-fashioned stage-coach. Schurz, once an influen tial man, admired by his countrymen because of his 'devotion 'tei freedom and for las marked' ability, has opened his eyes to the fact that lie does not carry thtf 'Gennait' vote in "his 'pocket, and that his countrymen still retain their old fashioned notion of doing their own , thinking.

They know that the move ment inaugurated by Greeley & Co. is purely a personal one, whose object and aim is to bring into power a party that will accept Grant's rejected timber and such men as Schurz, Trumbull, and Fenton an opportunity to bolster up their falling fortunes at the public expense. A Good Little Domestic Anecdote. ecdote. A young mother was in the habit of airing the baby's clothes at the window. Her husband did not like it, and be- livcd If she saw her practice as others saw it she would desist. He so directed their afternoon walk as to bring the nursery" window Into lull view .from the central part of the. town. Stopping abruptly, he poipted to tlie offending linens; flapping in the breeze, and asked. sarcastically; "My dear, what is that display in our window i" "Why," she replied, "that is the flag of our union." Conquered by this pungent retort, he saluted the llag by a swings of his hat, and, pressing his wife's arm closer within his own, said as they walked homeward, "And long may it wave."
