Julius Ctesnr, in personal appearance, was slender, tall and delicate, and was reputed to be the handsomest man in Rome. De fending from one of the first families, snd !cing endowed with powers of mind of the highest order, his successes in all his un dei takings seemed certain. Aspiring to be the first man in the Re public, and having two rivals for the same distinction, Pompey and Ciassus, Cresar sought to accomplish his purpose by uniting these rivals. The union was consumated, and he enjoyed the favor of both ; by which means a partition of power was agreed to by Pompey and Crassus with their mutual friend, thus forming the first triumvirate 5C B. C Caesar had the government of Transal pine Gaul and Illyria, and nobly sustained the military glory of his country. In Gaul, Germany and Britain he spread the terror of his arms. He invaded and subjugated a considerable portion of Britain, B. C. 55 years; but the urgency of affairs at home delayed the fui ther progress of his arms. Ho soon, however, loturned, and in the course of niue years this ambitious geueral not only conquered Britain, but all the country that extends from the Mediterra nean to the German sea. It is said he took 800 cities; subdued 300 different States; overcame 3,000,000 of men, 1,000,000 of whom fell on the field of battle, and the remainder were made pris oners of war. By the death of Crassus, which occurred ui& years B. C, an end was put to the Tri umvirate. After this event both Caesar and Pompey began to entertain the idea of supreme, un divided dominion. Both were oxtrcnicly poworful ; but Caesar possessed superior talents, and had an invinciblo army devoted to his interest. The main body of the peo ple were also devoted to Caesar, who had won them by his liberality. The contest for a superiority soon re sulted in a civil tvar, disastrous in the extreme to Pompey and the Republic. At Pharsalia, Ceasar aud Pompey met in bat tle, und Pompey was defeated, losing 15,000 men killed and 24,000 taken prisoners. Pompey fled to Egypt, and was there mur dered. Pompey's army consisted of 45,000 footmen and 7000 horse, while Caesar's numbered only 25,000 and 1000 horse, but they were better disciplined. "War was Caesar's element. In a contest betweon Ptolemy and his sister Cleopatra, Ceasar iuterposcd in favor of the latter, and at length brought Egypt under the Roman yoke. In two years after, he subdued Pharnaoles, King of Pontus. Leaving the conquest of the East, Caesar hastened to Rome to quell disturbances cre ated by Anthony, his deputy. His pres ence soon restored tranquility. At this time, two sons of Pompey, with Cato and Scipio, were in arms in Africa, assisted by Juba, King of Muritama ; thith er Caesar hastened, and at Thcpsus over throw them in battle, with little loss to himself. This event finished the war in Africa, and he returned in triumph to Rome. The state of affairs in Spain called Caesar into that country ; where, after severe fighting he Budceeded in conquering the remnant of his enemies in that quarter, and returned to Rome to receive the almost slavish homage of its citizens. Finding himself at peace, he turned his attention to improviug the empire. He adorned the city with magnificent buildings, undertook to level several mountains in Italy, to drain the Pontin marshes, and improve the navigation of the Tiber, re formed the Calendar, and meditated distant conquests. His brilliant course was soon destined to end. He was suspeeted of aimiug at roy alty, which the people detested and sixty Senators leagued together with the view of depriying him of life. This they accom plished by stabbing him in the Senate House on the 16th of March, 44 years B. C. - At the time of his tragical death he was in the 56 th year of his age. Caesar enslaved his country, and waded to dominion through rivers of blood. His levation cost the lives of 1,200,000 human 1 beings. m m 03 The bride elect of the Prince of Wales is named Alexandra Caroline Maria Charlotte Louisa Julia, and she is in London. SI) Viuion . JUNCTION, SATURDAY, JAN. 17, 1S63. LETTER FROM PHILOS. Philadelphia, December 28, 18G2. Feiend Uxiox A Happy New Year to your self and readers ! I bad almost said, a Merry Christmas ! but even as I wjite the sounds and sights of that usually lively time have died away and are almost foreotten, such is the transient nature of things below. With us in the East it has indeed been a merry Christmas. A stranger among us would indeed have been astonished on beholding the gayety and profligacy visible on every side, when recollecting that within two hundred and fifty miles, fathers, brothers, sons, and friends, are perilling their lives suffering from exposure to cold, liability to disease, and danger from the bullets of a bitter foe. As far a3 I can learn, never, for years, has there been so much activity in business at this particular season. The ornamental channels have been kept constantly flowing, and presents to relatives and fi iends have been more numerous than years before. This peculiar feature is noticeable not so much among the higher classes of society, as among the poor. Such has been the activity arising from the wants of the Government in carrying on the war, that real want has become comparatively mythical. It is true, that now then there comes under our observation a case of bitter suffering, in which the wife and children of one of our brave volunteers are the victims. This is not to be wondered at, when the fact is known that some of the troops, now shivering on the banks of the Itappahannock, perilling their lives, and shedding their heart's blood for the preservation of our common Union, have not received a cent of pay for over nine months. Amid 'all this activity of rejoicing, the poor toldiers languishing in the many hospitals in our ciiy have not been forgotten. The active benevolence which has earned for the city of Philadelphia the high distinction of being lit erally the "Soldier's Rest," received on Christmas a fresh impetus, and many were the hearts glad dened on this festive day. Poultry, and all the other delicacies of the season graced the tables of the hospitals, and beaming eyes and happy faces amply repaid the generosity so liberally dis pensed. Since the severe repulse which Burnsidc ex perienced at Fredericksburg, and which has probably delayed any very extensive offensive operations in the East until spring, and the sudden excitement which was created thereby in the popular mind, finding a convenient vent in assaults upon the President, Secretory of War, Commander-in-chief, and other officers, we have again settled down iuto comparative quiet. For a while there was a prospect of a thorough change in the Cabinet ; but the storm has appa rently blown over, though we have occasional rumors, one of which places General Butler, who is expected to arrived North shortly, at the head of the War Department, and General Fremont at the head of the Army. General Butler is by many icgarded as the man for the place; and certainly hi courso at New Orleans shows ad ministrative abilities of the highest order. Of the latter, though he is the pet of the West, I cannot say that such an appointment as the one hinted at would give very general satisfaction here, rremout is not looked upon as a man of extraordinary military ability, and his apparent want of patriotism in withdrawing from active service because an iuferior officer was promoted over him, has weakened him in the eyes of many who were ouce his warmest advocates. The examination into the causes which led to the repulse at Fredericksburg, the delay in fur nishing stores and pontoons until the heights above the city were crowned with batteries which mowed down our troops like grass before the scythe, has resulted in finding that nobody is to blame. General Meigs shields himself with the allegation that the order was given by him in time, and there his responsibility ended. And so the same thing may happen again: thousands of precious lives may be sacrificed, once happy homes made desolate, and no one be punished for the gross carelessness. The only thing clearly established by the investigation was that General McClellan, when he started after Lee, left his pontoons behind him, as though there could be no rivers to cross, and no bridges destroyed. It really seems as though military inefficiency were to be our ruin. Yours, A-c, Philos. O Among intercepted letters from Knoxvillej the following list of prices at that point is given : Common tea, $1G per pound; sugar 75c per pound ; bacon 35c to 40c per pound ; salt 15c per pound ; coffee, $3.50 per pound ; flour, $30 per barrel ; wood,$iiu to 3U per cord ; the latter seems incredible, but so it is written ; apples, $5 per bushel: pins $1 per paper ; boots, $50 per pair ; hats $15 to $15, each ; calico, $1.50 per yard. t O Mr. Adams, our Minister, has just trans mitted to the President of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, by the direction of Presi dent Lincoln, the sum of 100 as a donation to its general fuuds, and also about 150 more, to be distributed among the crew of oneof the boats which went to the relief of the Annie E. Hooper, which was wrecked on the British coast some months ago. O" Henry M. Warfield, Charles Howard, and S. Tcaken Wallis, who have recently been re leased from confinement in Fort Lafayette, have instituted proceedings in the Superior Court of Baltimore, each to recover $20,000 damages, for alleged false imprisonment and detention in Fortress Monroe, from Major-General Wool, who was tire commander of that post at the time of the arreet. GENERAL BUT L E R'S FAREWELL ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF NEW ORLEANS. The following farewell nddrcss of Gen. Butler to the people of New Orleans was, on the evening of the 23d ult., placed in the hands of Captain John Clark, with the request that it be issued in The Delta : Citizens of.Xcic Orleans: It may not be inappropriate, as it not inopportune in occasion, that there should be addressed to you a few. words nt parting, by one whose name is to be hereafter indissolubly con nected with your city. I shall speitk in no bitterness, beoause I am not conscious of a single personal ani mosity. Commanding the Army of the Gulf, I found you captured, but not sur rendered ; conouered. but not orderly: relieved from the presence of an army, but incapable of taking care of yourselves. So far from it, you had called upon a foreign legion to protect you from yourselves, I restored order, punished crime, opened com merce, brought provisions to your starving people, reformed your currency, and gave you quiet protection, such ns you had not enjoyed for many years. While doing this, my soldiers were sub ject to obloqu', reproach and insult. And now, speaking to you, who know the truth, I here declare, that whoever has quietly remained about his business, afford ing neither aid nor comfort to the enemies ot the United States, has never been inter fered with by the soldiers of the United States, The men who had assumed to govern you and to defend your city in arme having tied, some or your women flouted at those who camo to protect them. By a simple order (No 28), I called upon every soldier of this army to treat tho women of New Orleans as gentlemen should deal with the sex, with such effect that I now call upon the just-minded ladies of New Orleans to say whether they have ever enjoyed so complete protection and calm quiet for themselves and their families, as since the advent of the United States troops. The enemies of my country, unrepentant and implacable, I have treated with merited severity. I hold that rebellion is treason, and that treason persisted in is death, and any punishment short of that due a traitor giyes so much clear gain to him from the clemency of the Government. Upon this thesis have I administered the authority of the United States, because of which 1 am not unconscious of complaint. I do not feel that I have erred in too much harsh uess, for that harshness has ever been oxhibited to disloyal enemies to my country and not to loyal friends. To bo sure, I might have regaled you with the amenities of British civilization, and yet been within the supposed rules of civilized warfare. You might have been smoked to death in caverns, as were the Covenanters of Scot land by tho comniaud of a General of the Royal House of England ; or roasted like the inhabitants of Algiers during the French campaign your wives and daughters might have been given over to the ravishcr, as were the unfortunate dames of Spain in the Peninsular war ; or you might have been scalped and tomahawked as our mothers wero at Wyoming by the savage allies of Great Britain in our own revolution; your property could have boon turned over to indiscriminate " loot " like the palace of the Emperor of China ; works of art which adorned your buildings might have been sent away like the paintings of the Vatican ; your sons might have been blown away from the mouths of cannon like the Sepoys a Delhi; and yet all this would have been within the rules of civilized warfare as practised by the most polished and most hypocritical nations of Europe. For such acts the records of the doings of some of the inhabitants of your city towards the friends of the Union, were a sufficient pro vocative and justification. But I have not so conducted. On the contrary, tho worst punishment inflicted, except for criminal acts punishable by every law, has been banishment with labor to a barien island, where I encamped my own soldiers before marching here. It is true I have levied upon tho wealthy rebels and paid out nearly half a million of dollars to feed 40,000 of the starving poor of all nations assembled here, made so by this war. I saw that this rebellion was a war of the aristocrats against the middling men, of the rich against the poor; a war of the land, owner against the laborer; that it was a struggle for tho retention of power in tho hands of the few against the many; and I found no conclusion to it save in the subju gation of the few and the disenthrallraent of the many. I therefore felt no hesitation in taking the substance of the wealthy, who had caused the war, to feed the innocent poor, who had suffered by the war. And I shall now leave you with the proud con sciousness that I carry with me the blessings of the humble and loyal under the roof of the cottage and in the cabin of tho slave, and so am quite content to bear the sneers of the salon or the curses of the rich. I found you trembling at the. terrors of servile insurrection. Ail danger of this I have prevented by so treating the slave that he had no cause to rebel. I found the dungeon, the chain and the lash, your only means of enforcing obedi ence in your servants. I leave them peace ful, laborious, controlled by the laws, of kindness and justice. . . I have demonstrated that the pestilence can be kept from your borders. I have added a million of dollars to your wealth in the form of new land from the batture of the Mississippi. I have cleansed and improved your streets canals and public squares, and opened new avenues to unoccupied laud. I have given you freedom of elections," greater than you ever enjoyed. I have caused justice to be administered so impartially that your own advocates have unanimously complimented the Judges of my appointment. You have seen, therefore, the benefit of the laws and justice of the Government against which you rebelled. Why, then, will you not all return to .your allegiance to that Government not with lip-service, but with the heart ? I conjure you, if you ever desire to see renewed prosperity, giving business to your streets and wharves if you hope to see your city become again the mort of the mart of the Western World, fed by its rivers for more than three thousand miles, draining the commerce of a country greater than the mind of man hath ever conceived return to your allogiance. If you desire to leave to your children the inheritance you received of your fathers a stable constitutional Government if you desire that they should in the future be a portion of the greatest empire the sun ever shono upon return to your allegiance. There is but one thing that stands in the way. There is hut one thing that at t7iis hour stands between you and the Government, and that is Slavery. This institution, cursed of God, which has taken its last refuge here, in His provi dence will be rooted out as the tare3 from the wheat, although the wheat be torn up with it. I have given much thought to this sub ject. I came among you, by teachings, by habit of mind, by political position, by social affinity, inclined to sustain your domestic laws, if by possibility they might be with safety to the Union. Months of experience and of observation have forced the conviction that the existence of Slavery is incompatible with the safety cither of yourselves or of the Union. As the system has gradually grown to its pres ent huge dimensions, it were best if it could be gradually removed ; but it is better, far better, that it should be taken out at once than that it should longer vitiate the social, political and family relations of your coun try. I am speaking with no philanthropic views ns regards tho slave, but simply of the effect of Slavery on the master. See for yourselves. Look around you and say whether this saddening, deadening influence, has not all but destroyed the very framework of your society. I am speaking tho farewell words of one wha has shown his devotion to his country, at tho peril of his life and fortune, who in these words can have neither hope nor interest, save the good of those whom he addresses ; and let me here repeat, with all tho solemnity of an appeal to Heaven to bear me witness, that such aro the views forced upon me by experience. Come, then, to the unconditional support of the Government. Take into your own hands your own institutions; remodel them according to the laws of nations and of God, and thus attain that great prosperity assured to you by geographical position, only a portion of which was heretofore yours. Benjamin F. Butler. WHO SENT THEM. . Old mother Benner was pious, but poor, In tho midst of her extreme want, her trust and confidence was put in God. It was late one chilly night in the autumn of the year, when two rather wild young men were passing her cottage on their way home. One of them had under his arm some loaves of bread which he had pur chased at the village store. A faint light from mother Benner's casement. Said the one who had the loaves to his companion : "Let us have some fun with the old woman !" " Agreed," said the other. They approached the house, and peeping into the window, saw the old woman upon her knees by the hearth, where a few em bers were mouldering in the ashes. She was engaged in prayer. They listened and heard her offer an honest petition for bread. She wa3 utterly destitute of bread. In furtherance of their fun, one of them with the loaves climbed softly up the roof of the eottage and dropped one loaf after tho other down the chimney. As the bread rolled down on the hearth, they caught the lady's eye, and in the fullness of her heart she exclaimed : " Thank the Lord j bless the Lord for his bounty." But the Lord didn't send them," shouted a voice from the chimney. " Yes, he did," said she, undauntedly, ' the Lord sent them and tho Devil brought them." m i "The dove, recollect, did not return in Mnah with the olive-branch till the second time 'of-her going forth, why, then, should you dcspona.ai me iauure ui a war. attempt r DR. FRANKLIN'S ONLY SON. While the name of Dr.-Franklin occu pies so prominent a place in the history of our country, it may not be uninteresting to give some accountof his only son, William about whom we think little is known by tho oommunity at large. Unlike his father, whoso chief claim to veneration is for the iuvaluable services he rendered his countrv in her greatest need, the son was, from first to last, a devoted loyalist. Before the rev olutionary war he held the office of Gov ernor of New Jersey, which appointment he received in 17G3. When the difficulties between the mother country and the col onists were coming to a crisis, he threw his whole influence in favor of royalty, and endeavored to prevent the legislative assem bly from sanctioning the proceedings of the General Congress at Philadelphia. These effort?, however, did little to stay the tide of popular sentiment in favor of resistance to tyranny, and soon involved him in diffi culty, H was deposed by tho Whirrs to give place to William Livingston, and sent a prisoner to Connecticut, where he remain ed for two years in East Windsor, iu the house of Captain Ebcnezer Grant, near where the Theological Seminary now stands. Tn 1778 he waf exchanged, and soon after went to England. There he spent the remainder of his life, receiving a pension from the British Government for the losses he had sustained by his fidelity. He died in 1S18, at tho age of 82. As might be expected, his opposition to the cause of liberty, 50 dear to tho heart of his fathar, produced an estrangement be tween them. For years they had no inter course. When, in 1784, the son wrote to his father, in his reply Dr. Franklin says : " Nothing has ever hurt me so much, and affected me with such keen sensations, as to find myself deserted in ray old age, by my only son ; not only deserted, but to fiud him taking up arms against me in a cause wherein my good fame, fortune and life were all at stake." In his will, also, he alludes to the part his son had acted. After making him some bequests, he adds : " The part ho acted against me in the late war, which if of public notoriety, will account for my leaving him no more of an estate which he endeavored to deprive mo of." The patriotism of the father stands forth all the brighter when contrasted with the de sertion of the son, A LESSON FROM HISTORY. The nearest historical parallel in modern times to the present position of the United States, is that of France during tho great revolution in 1 700, after the execution of Louis XVI. The government of the Re public was harrassed with all manner of domestic difficulties, from factions, con spiracies, rebellions, and finances disordered to the last degreo of confusion and discredit. Iu the midst of these internal troubles, war was declared against France, not by Eng land alone, but by Austria, Prussia, Ifol land, Portugal, Sardioia, and Naples, the Pope and several German Principalities iu all thirty States, great and small. The greatest being the chief powers of Europe and the world. They took the field with great armies, and approached France from every point; this to at a time when in Franco whole provinces and large cities like Lyons, Tou lon and Orleans, were in arms against the Republic, and tho revolt in many places formidable and for a time successful. To met these various enemies, the French Convention called out 500,000 men. This force did not prove sufficient, and a few months later a decree was issued putting in permanent requisition every citizen. All the young unmarried men, or widowers without children, from the ages of 18 to 25 were to compose the first lovy. They wero to assemble immediately in the chief towns in the districts to put themselves under drill, and to be ready to start for the scene of war at a moment's notice. x The men between 25 and 30 were notified to get ready, and meanwhile, were repaired to suppress the revolt of tho Vondeans and other insurgents, and to keep the peaco of the interior. The men between 30 and GO were held in reserve for the more gradual arming of the populatioa. In certain parts such as the Departments adjoining La Ven dee, Lyons, Toulon, and the Rhine, the whole population able to bear arms wero at once called out. The means to arm, equip, and subsist these levies were adapted to the circumstances. The first produced in a month G0O.000 men, but these were not soldiers, and for four or five months the armies of the Re public suffered a continuous series of disas ters from panics and want of skill in both troops and commanders. -But the tide at length turned, and the Republic net only expelled the iovaders, but carried its no torious standard into the adjacent countries. What France did then the United States can do now, if the exigencies of the case demand it. S3T k. private of the 11th Regiment, writing to his wife, says: "My breeches have executed the military movement, 'To the rear, open order and I must go a tail oring." STGen. Anderson, of Fort Sumpter fame, has been assigned to the command of the troops and fortifications surrounding Covington and Newport,"Ky. A SMOOTH DRINK, Dan says that a year or two ago he hap pened to have in his compauy a couple of " broths of boys," who, like all the jolly " ould Ireland," liked a " bit of a trate" of something consumedly well, and often in dulged in it, to his grievous annoyance, for of course they usually chose the most inop portune moment to get "cordialled." On one occasion, in her husband's ab secc, Mrs. Dan noticed that Miko and Pat had procured a supply of the "eraytbur," and stored the jug that contained it upon a deserted shelf in the chimney-corner. Women you know God ble?s 'em, nev ertheless ! hardly like us of the sterner sex to " liquidate," and with her sister's proverbial aversion to the " red eye," my friend's wife took advantage of the merry dog's attendance to their chores, and ab stracted their jug, and substituted in its stead, one exactly similar in appearance outwardly so, but not in its innards." At niht the boys bunked in upon the kitchen floor, and Mr. D. and his wife re tired to their room, tho door of which open edjnto the kitchen, where they could have ra view from their bed of what might trans pire between tho bog trotters. When Mike had given what ho supposed was ample time for the " boss" to go to sleep, he " huuehed his neighbor, saying : Arrah, Pat, let's have a drap?" "Begorry, so say I, Mike; it's as dry as a chip, I am entirely, this blessed night." Up both sprang, aud Pat reaching tho jug, took it down from its perch, and in full view of Mr. D. and his wife, who were watching tho " motions," took a swig. But tho expression of his face was anything but a favorable compliment upon .the content". Mike noticed the contortion and exclaimed : " Pat what the divil are you making such a bad look over tho whiskey for ?" " Faith, Mike," replied his companion, recovering himself, "it was no bad look at all, I was after making. I was only think ing what a smooth drink 'twas, shure." " Hand over bore," cried Mike, impa tiently, and applying to his lips, he took a generous draught. " Blurenagers I" ho roared, rushing for the door, where Pat followed him, and tho noise of their efforts at " heaving Jonah " made the night hideous. 31 y fiiond and his partner thought they would crack their sidc3, laughing over tho affair, aud next morning be went to tho jug and shook it, but it was badly depleted. " Miko," he cried, addressing one of tho two sickly looking Irishmen as ever com plained, " what on earth has become of all the linseed oil." " Linseed ile, is it, sir ?" exclaimed Pat, with air as though something had cleared up a great mystery to him. 44 Yes ; I want some to oil the harness, and I see it is almost gone." The poor fellow only muttered, " Linseed ile it was, shure, bad luck to it then ; it went down mighty smooth." This was too mucu for my frieud, as ho had to give vent to his pent up laughter, at which Pat vamoosed, but in such dudgeon that tho mention of a u smooth drink" wakes up the shillalaigh in him whenever one hazards to hint at it. ADVICE TO JOKERS. A new work published in London, en titled, " Tho hand-book of Joking," gives the following advice, which is worthy of remembrance : " Always let your jokes be well-limed. Any time will do for a good joke, but no time will do for a bad one. Any place will fit, provides the joke itself be fitting, but it never fits if a joke be out of iU place. No man can order a joke as he would his coat, at Stultz's or his boots at Hoby's. Jokes are not only out of order, but we have known jokers ordered out; in short, any man who attempts to joke out of order, should either be provided with a straight wasitcoat, or be kicked out of society. In concocting pkes, as in making puddings, each person employs similar materials, but tho quality of the dish is entirely dependent on the skill of the artisto. As gold be comes refined by passing through the ordeal of fire, so truth is the purer for being tested by the furnace of fun ; for jokes are, to facts, what melting pots are to metal. The utterer of a good joke is a useful member of society, but the maker of a bad one is a more despicable character than the veriest coiner by profession. A joke from a gentleman is an act of charity ; an uncharitable joke is an ungen tlemanly act. The retort courteous is the touchstone of good feeling ; the reply churl ish the proof of cold-hearted stupidity," i-Theia is nothing like the gallantry of manners there used to be some fifty years ago. Now a gentleman lifts his hat to a lady ; then the bat was entirely removed from the head, and the gentleman stood before her uncovered. Now the gent takes a smack from her ruby lips, and hardly looks red in the face; then, he struggled for the smack, and never drew a long breath for half an hour after. Then ho kneeled gracefully to tie up her shoe string; now, she puts her foot into his lap and he ties tho string with a gap and releases the foot, without an ecstacy, or even a tight squeeze. Wo are growing somewhat bar barous. ItrMurfreesuoro is entirely deserted. Our armv has advancedten miles beyond.
