That Teiuuiile Yankee Element !—The New
York Sun says it is distressing to read in some
of the Southern papers, of the danger to which
the aristocratic society of Dixie is subjected by
contact with the “ Yankee ” element. The fol
liwingextract from the Houston (Texas, Journal,
shows that the morality of that spotless section
is in great danger of being engulphed, submerg
ed, wiped mt, by the flood of vice that is now
sweeping ujon Texas from the land of the Yan
kees :—“There is a tide of immorality sweeping
from the North since the close of the war that
requires ail our vigilance and the best efforts of
our citizens to prevent. More fearful in its ef
fects over air socially moral country will be this
tide, unless it he checked, than any crevasse that
ever leaped the levees of the Mississippi or the
dykes of Holland.” Won’t some power inter
fere to shield the virgin purity of the Lone Star
from Yankee contamination?
Takes it his Word.— A few years ago, says
the Schecectady Sun, when, it was the custom
for large girls and larger boys to attend district
schools, an incident took place in a neighboring
town which is worth recording. One of the fair
est and plimpest girls of the school happened to
violate a rale. The master, who was a prompt,
energetic r ellow of twenty-five, summoned her
into the middle of the Hoor. After interrogating
the girl for a few moments, he thundered out —
“ Will you give me your hand ?” “ Yes, sir, and
ray heart, loo,” promptly responded the girl, at
the same lime stretching forth her hand to the
teacher, and eyeing him with a cunning look. —
A death-like silence reigned for a moment in the
school ; a tear was seen to glisten in the teach
' er’s eye ; the ruler-was laid upon the desk, and
! the blushing girl was requested to take her seat,
| but to remain after the school was dismissed.—
i In three weeks after school closed that girl and
j the teacher were married.
“The Laws of Texas.”— What a delightful
place must Texas be to live in I It is stated that
when Gen. Gregory went to Texas he visited a
lawyer, at his office, and asked him for a copy of
the laws of Texas. The lawyer opened a drawer
and took out a large and handsome bowie-knife,
and handed it to the General, who carefully ex
amined it and laid it down saying, “I desire to
look at the laws of Texas.” The lawyer replied,
“ That (the bowie-knife) is the laws of Texas.—
A few statutes have been passed. Nobody noti
ces them. The only law used in this State, the
only laws here noticed, referred to, and used, are
the bowie-knife. The rule is, at night, to walk
in the road with a cocked revolver held forth,
and to let no person come near you. If they do,
shoot, and kill if you can. Any other plan will
insure your oirn death.”
Vermont and Maine have both spoken, and in
a tone which cannot lie mistaken, in condemna
tion of the policy of reconstruction advocated by
the present Administration. * If the other
States which arc to hold elections this Fall sho’d
follow the path upon which Veifnont and Maine
have so boldly entered, the verdict of the masses
will be that the Southern States will not he ad
mitted to representation in Congress, no matter
how loyal the agents whom they select may be,
until they have ratified the amendments to the
Constitution proposed at the last session of Con
gress.—Alta California.
“ S. T-18C0-X.”—Many people wonder what
the above characters, so liberally daubed on fen
ces, buildings and bridges in this vicinity, mean.
The following in explanation is from the last Red
Bluff Independent: —“ Some say it means * Start
ed Trade in 1800, with X dollars,’ while others
say that S T is ‘Secesh Toddy,’ invented in iB6O,
and that X is an algebraic character, signifying
the ‘ unknown quantity ’ that a man will drink
when he once gets a taste of it.'
So They Go.—The Santa Cruz Sentinel, among
the last of the Mobegans, bids a sad and affec
tionate “ farewell to President Johnson,” in its
issue of September Bth. Speaking of the prob
able release of Jeff. Davis, he says :—“ Should
the head devil of the rebellion be released on pa
role, without trial, we hope the people will rise
in their majesty and power and hurl the Presi
dent into the cell made vacant by the criminal.”
Getting on the Right Platform. —President
Roberts said in his speech to the Fenians at Buf
falo, New York ;—“ The dawn of Irish liberty
is approaching, and in a friendly spirit I ask you
to extend your hand to every other people who
are struggling for liberty ; help to enslave no
man, and remember that God created all in his
own image ; that He looks not so much at the
color of the face ns at the color of the heart.”
Goon Authority.—John W. Forney, who is
known as Andy Johnson's imaginary “ dead
duck,” telegraphs toGovcrnor Low that the Rad
icals will carry Pennsylvania by a handsoracma
jority ; that they will not only elect their Con
gressional candidates in every district now rep
resented bv Cnion men,but will gain two others.
They have an expressive way of stating things
out West. Among the resolutions of a late Un
ion Convention in Illinois we find the following :
Retolred, That “treason must be made odi
ous,” but that it cannot be done by giving reb *
els seats in Congress, nor by feeding Jefferson
Davis on poached eggs and fried oysters.
Johnson Ton his Visil to the tomb of Douglas,
never mentioned his object on the trip, but occu
pied the time for his own egotism and selfish
purpose, showing conclusively thatall he visited
the grave of Douglas for was to make political
capital.— Yreka Journal.

Tl>« Guard at Fortress Monroe.
In the silence of the midnight, when the lamp was burn
ing low.
On ray brain there dawned a vision of the cell at Fort
Monroe; •
And around iU massy portal, doubly lock'd and triply
burr’d.
Swept a train of pallid pliantoms, in the darkness keep
ing guard!
And I ctied aloud in horror, “0, thou dim and droadfol
train.
By what strange unrest art summoned unto Earth and
Life again ?”
Then a solemn voice gave answer, “From our graves ’neath
sod and tide.
Wo have come to watch bis slumbers, through whoso wick
edness we died.
“From the far off fields w© reddened with our blood in
fearful rain.
From the hiding waves of ocean, now we rise in might
again;
From the graves, a welcome refuge, from the loathsome
prison-pen.
Come the dread avenging spectres that were starved and
tortured men.
“We died starved —his fare is dainty—soft and snowy is
his bed;
Countless nameless graves bear witness we were low and
roughly laid.
But the sleep to which death lulled ns by no treason dream
was marred,
And the angels came from Heaven, and around our rest
kept guard.
“ Can yon marvel that he sleeps not while we stand out
side the door?
That he starts in quivering anguish at our foot-falls on the
floor?
Though his prison walls bo massive, though his door lie
closely hair’d, •
lie beholds fi«. and he hears us, and he knows we’re keep
ing guard!
“Traitor hearts may yet befriend him, traitor hands may
set him free, /
He may fly from liete and scoffing, but from us he can
not flee;
When at last to Cod in Heaven flies his soul, all treason
scarr’d,
Round about the Throne Eternal he will find us keeping
guard!” —Lucy U. Hooper.
A Frank Reply.
The following letter from John S. Mann, Esq.,
of Comlersport, Potter county, Pennsylvania, is
pointed and opportune.- Randall, chief of the
“ bread and butter” Brigade at Washington,ad
dressed Mr. Mann, supposing him to be still Post
master at Coudersport, a position which he oc
cupied up to January last, when he took bis scat
as Representative from his county in the Legis
lature. Not knowing that he had resigned, Ran
dall sent him, as he did to all Postmasters, a
printed circular, to which Mr. Mann returned the
following reply ;
OorDßnsponr, Pa., July G, 18CC.
llon. A. W. Randall— Dear Sir :— -Your favor
of June 2Gth, enclosing a call for a National Un
ion Convention, is received, with a request that
if the call meet my approbation, I will signify
it by a brief letter for publication.
I presume I have ns good a right to signify my
dissent as approval of this call, and I therefore
take the liberty of saying that I have no smpa
thy with it nor with the men whose names are
signed to it.
In the Spring of ISG2 I spent some weeks in
Washington, and every day was a listener to the
great debate in the Senate on the right and du
ty of confiscating the property of traitors. The
speeches of Cowan, Doolittle and Browning, on
that occasion, were all calculated, if not intend
ed, to throw obstacles in the way of thetriumph
of our arras, and when J returned home I told
my friends that those Senators would go over to
Copperheadism before the contest was settled.—
The endorsement of this call by the Copperhead
members of Congress shows that is the bridge
over which these betrayers of their constituents
are to march to the disloyal party of the nation.
If you tTiink you can build up a party of any
strength by parading the names of these recre
ants to the principles that exalted them into pow
er, you deceive yourself.
The people are in earnest; they have made
such sacrifices to overthrow treason as no pen
can portray, and no sophistry can cheat them out
of the just fruits of theii’victory, so dearly pur
chased—the first of which is, that loyal men, if
there be only “ five thousand ” in a State, should
control its destinies and fill its offices.
Your movement seeks to give ’ the control of
the Government into the hands of those who
sought to destroy it, and their sympathizers.—
It will fail, just as the great Chicago disloyal
movement failed. Remember the effort to build
up a Tyler party, and take warning 1
■Truly yours, for a National Union of loyal men.
John S. Mann.
Divine Melody.—Genius has ever warned the
world against “ the man that hath no music
in himself, nor is not moved by the concord of
sweet sounds.” And if it is true that all such
are “fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils,”
and we must be sure to “let no such man be
trusted,” what shall we do for a world ? It is
true everybody rushes to the doors and windows
when a brass band marches by, or even a fife and
drum ; for martial music shakes even the most
stolid nerves. But if the divine William is right,
that as men fail to appreciate music, to just that
measure they arc steeped in crime, then alas for
mankind, we are lost! If music is among the
saving instrumentalities, it is well to encourage
and perfect it to its highest degree, and those
who plead with men to be better will plead in
the dulcet strains of wind and stringed instru
ments, and by that most powerful of all persuad
ers, the voice of women. We doubt not that all
in our city who wisely strive to win souls have
brought sacred music to their aid. We can
speak of what we know, what our own ears have
heard, when we say a word of the Congrega
tional Church on Sixth street. It has seldom
been our lot to bear better church music than
mav be beard there of a Sabbath. It is one of
the’ luxuries of worship to be borne upon the
breath of sacred song ont of and above the work
day self: to have the whole being melted and
merged into a grand nnity of emotion, the music
lending wings to the sonl that it may fly away
and be at rest, reposing in the pure bliss of sol
emn adoration. In any good music there is great
power to lift up and harmonize all the being, but
most in the sacred harmony that worships while
it sings. N. P. Willis once wished that all the
service of the church might be music only, then
the critic in man might slumber, and be might
give all his powers to adoration. But when
music, as a solvent, has reduced all the elements
of the being to purity and nnity, then let the
thread of truth drop in and the soul crystalize
about it. We can ill spare any good influence
for this wicked world of onrs, none certainly
form the place where men go to get ont of them
selves and into closest communion with the
Father of Spirits. Let good men then spare no
pains to draw men by this silver chord of melody
to the place where blessing abounds for all.—

Jerusalem by MsssllgSl-
The broad moon lingers on the summit of
Mount Olivet, but its beams have long left the
garden of Gethseraane and the tomb of Absalom,
the waters of Kedron and the dark abyss of
Jehosophat. Full Malls its splendor,however, on
the opposite city—vivid and defined in its silver
blaze. A lofty wall, with turrets and towers
and frequent gates, undulates with the unequal
ground which it covers, as it encircles the lost
capital of Jehovah. It is a city of hills, far more
famous than those of Rome ; for all the world
has heard of Sion and Calvary, while the Arab
and Assyrian, and the tribes and the nations be
yond, are as ignorant of the Capitolian and
Aventine Mounts, as they are of the Malvern or
Chiltern Hills.
The broad steep of Sion, crowned with the
tower of David; nearer still, Mount Moriah,
with the gorgeous tempel of the God of Abra
ham, but built, alas I by the child of Hagar, not
by Sarah's chosen one; close to its cedars and
cypresses its lofty spires and airy arches, the
moonlight falls on Bethesda's pool; further on,
entered by the gate of St. Stephen, the eye,
though it is in the noon of night, traces with
ease, the street of Grief, a long winding ascent
to a vast cupolaed pile that now covers Calvary,
called the street of Grief because there the most
illustrious of the Hebrew race, the descendant of
King David, and the divine son of the most
favored of women, twice sank under the burden
of suffering and shame which is now throughout
all Christendom the emblem of triumph and
honor ; passing over the groups and masses of
houses, built of stone, with terraced roofs or
surmounted with small domes, we reach the hill
of Salem, where Melchisedek built his mystic
citadel, and still remains the hill of Scopas,
where Titus gazed upon Jerusalem on the eve of
his final assault. Titus destroyed the temple.—
The religion of Judea has in turn, subverted the
fanes which were raised to his father and to him
self in their imperial capital; and the God of
Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob, is now wor
shipped before every altar in Rome.
Jerusalem by moonlight I 'Tis a fine specta
cle, apart from the indissoluble association of
awe and beauty. The mitigating hour softens
the austerity of a mountain landscape, magnifi
cent in outline, however harsh and severe in de
tail ; and while it retains all its sublimity, ’•e
moves much of the savage sternness of the strange
and unrivalled scene. A fortified city almost
surrounded by ravines, and resting in the center
of chains of far spreading hills, occasionally of
fering, through their rocky glens, the gleam of a
distant and richer land.
The moon has sunk behind the Mount of Olives,
and the stars in the darker sky shine doubly
bright over the sacred city. The all prevading
stillness is broken by a breeze that seems to have
traveled over the plain of Sharon from the sen.
It wails among the tombs, and sighs among the
cypress groves. The palm tree trembles as it
passes, as if it were the spirit of woe. It is the
breeze that has traveled over the plains of Tharou
from the sea? Or Is it the haunting voice of
prophets mourning over the city they could not
save? Their spirits would surely linger on the
land where their Creator had designed to dwell,
and over whose impending fate, Omnipotence
had shed human tears. From this mount I who
can believe that at the midnight hour, from the
summit of the Ascent, the great departed of Israel
assembled to gaze upon the battlements of their
mystic city? There might be counted heroes
and sages who need shrink from no rivalry with
the brightest and wisest of other lands ; but the
law givers of the time of the Pharaohs, whose
laws are still obeyed", the monarch whose reign
has ceased for three thousand years, but whose
wisdom is a proverb in all nations on earth ; the
teacher whose doctrines have modelled civilized
Europe ; the greatest of legislators, the greatest
of administrators, and the greatest of reformers,
what race, extinct or living, can produce three
such men as these?
The Inst light is extinguished in the village of
Bethany. The wailing breeze has become a
moaning wind ; a white film spreads over the
purple sky ; the stars are veiled ; the stars are
hid ; all becomes as dark as the waters of Kedron
and the valley of Jchosaphet. The tower of
David merges into obscurity; no longer glitter
the minarets of the mosque of Omar ; Bethesda’s
angelic waters, the gate of Stephen, the street of
sacred sorrow, the hill of Salem and the bights
of Scopas, can no longer be discerned. Alone
in the increasing darkness, while the very line of
the walls gradually eludes the eye, the church
of the Holy Sepulchre is a beacon light.
And why is the church of the Holy Sepulchre
a beacon light? Why, when it is already past
the noon of darkness, when every soul slumbers
in Jerusalem, and not a sound disturbs the deep
repose save the howl of the wild dog crying to
the wilder wind—why is the cupola of the sanc
tuary illumined, though the hour has long since
been numbered when pilgrims kneel and monks
pray ?
An armed Turkish guard are bivouacked in
the court of the church itself; two brethren of
the convent of Terra Santa keep holy watch and
ward ; while at the tomb beneath, there kneels a
solitary youth, who prostrated himself at sunset,
and who will there pass unmoved the whole of
the sacred night.
O.v His Hioh Horse.— Reverend Petroleum V.
Nasby is grently encouraged by the prospects of
his party. The late election in Kentucky and
the \cw Orleans riot have excited his demo
cratic soul. He says :—“I notice a revival uv
the work in this part uv the Democratic vine
yard which cheers me. The dcmonstrashnn our
friends made in Memphis, the killin of a 100
abolitionists in New Orleans, and the call for a
Johnson Convenshun In Philadelphia, all, all
hev conspired to comfort the souls uv the Dimo
cracy and encourage era to renewed effort. It is
bringing forth fruit. Only last week five North
ern men were sent whirling ont uv this section—
they dusted in the night to escape bangin’, leav
in’ their goods as a prey for the righteous ; six
niggers hev bin killed, and one Bnrow officer
shot. Trooly there is everything to encourage
ns.”
Had a Good Tims.— On Monday night last our
citizens were treated to a good, old fashioned
wedding by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Isaacks. Invi
tations had been extended to every one in town
and to every acquaintance of thehride and bride
groom in the country, and at the appointed time
Odd Fellows’ Hall was crowded. At the con
clusion of the ceremony an invitation was given
to all present to repair to the residence of the
happy conple. Of course everybody availed
themselves of the invitation, and on arriving
there found that ample preparation had been
made to receive them—a table was found spread
that would have satisfied the taste of an epicure
for quality, and delighted the qye of a gourmand
for quantity. Rich cake and choice drinkables
abounded, while the tables fairly groaned beneath
the weight of the other concomitants of a prince
ly feast. The occasion was a joyous one, and
highly appreciated by all present.— Shatta Cou
