That winds imonc the trees. His spirit cling
In orang mint arotind the snowy wings
Of many a patient cloud that sow since noon

Waiting when night sh&llcome, eVas! too soon.
To veil the timid olushea of the virgLn moon.
The trees with crimson rohea are garmented.
Clad with frail brilliance by the winkling lrot;
For the yonng leaves that Spring with beanty fed,
Their greennew and Jnieriunce have lott,
Gflinine new boantv at too erest a eot
Unnatural beauty, e&secce of decay.
Too won upon the harrh wind wildlv tossed,
Ieaving the naked trees ghost-like gray.

Misa Scota M. Inskhep nil onr citi
lens have known as a florid and tropical
little beauty, smart as iipbtniDg am id
dependent as a man a horseback. Before
the war, and perhaps before she had
learned that ebe was "of Virginia blood,"
she was a pleasing and popular little dam
ael, loved and estoemed by everybody.
She was a favorite in her school, the
Xenia Female College, at which she
honorahly graduated. : ; '
But, on the breaking. out of the rebel
lion, she of course followed the sympa
thies of her father, an" honest but lgnn
rnnt and obstinate old farmer from Vir
ginia, who had, we believe, sold some
slaves and invested the proceeds in
Greene-eonnty land, and who was, there
fire, as ardently in faver of the slave
holdets' war against the . government as
if-he had never sold out his ehartle inter
est therein. It will be remembered that
some of us had difficulty in preserving
tbis old oenlleman from the generous
violence of the hoys in blue. Early in
'he hostilities a number of onr bar here,
whose loyal word was powerful with the
boys, stood np with him on the court
house steps and pleaded and promised
for him against the gathering wrath of
an outraged public sentiment. And la
ter, when the notorious John Morgan
came through our city a prisoner, the
writer hereof privatr ly warned him to be
ware of a repetition of sunh treasonable
m-mifpsfations and communications as he
m!idf to Mi'T"nn on that occasion. '
T'mis he escaped violence. But he

after the presint ition, the prettv littlp
rebel came hack to Xetiia and boldly
b 'a-ted of it here.
Th'" rendered the alnmnal association
of l.er c'asmates in college indignnnt;
and thev called a meetina tn purge their
loval sneiety of this little taint of trea
son. They organized as a sort of court
martial, we believe, with their judgeadvo
rate, perhaps, and sent a summons to
Miss Peota to appear and how cause why
she should not be expelled. She repli
ed, in a little note by the bearer, that she
asked no favors of them ; that she had
no conduct to explain or extenuate; that
they mis-lit expel and be blessed; and
that she respectfully begged leave to sub
scribe herself theirs with supreme con
tempt. .
This was admirable and bravo. What
else could she have done and showed her
self "a girl of Virginia blood"? Wo like
that kind of grit in a man ; but in a wo
man it is calculated to excite enthusiasm.
It was a hot shot in the association. It
broke up the court-martial in a jiffy. No
farther proceedings were had; and the
public has never learned bat that the
name of Miss Scota stands among the
honored names of the society to this day.
With this onintendfdly lengthy pref
ace, we transcribe the following marriage
notice from the columns of the Lexing
ton .Observer & Reporter, a rebel news
paper of the confederate state of Ken
tucky :
" Some years ago at tho head of a com
pany of Confederate cavalry we took pos
session of Harrodsburg. ' The Southern
ladies of that generous place hurriedly
made a Doauinui ion'Cderate nag ana
presented it to the campany. The pre
sentation speech, eloquent and grnceful,
was made by a girl of Virginia blood, but
Ohio residence. She avowed her delib
erate purpose never to wed any but a
'fighting rebel.'
' Some time afterward at Sneak-Creek
Gap, nearResaea, Ga., the regiment we
commanded led the brigade (Grigsby'g
brigade), when a sudden and. severe nre
caused confusion. Against terrible odds
that resitnent was holding its line, but
pressed to the utmost. Just then thirty
five men of the First Kentucky cavalry,
under its Major, charged npon the left
flank of the advancing enemy, and
throueh their line. The charge was as
handsome as any we ever saw daring our
years of Ferviee.
The Major afterwards became Colonel.
On yesterday we stood by and saw these
two become man and wife. God give
them life-long happiness.

The principal brewery in Austria is
at Kle'n-Schwechat. near Vienna, and
was etahlished in 1832; hut its impor
tance dates only from 1836, when the
late proprietor, Mr. Anthony Dreher,
took possession of it.
Previous to this later date the only
beer brewed there was obergahrig, a
hiehly fermented beer, which would not
keep, but was consequently drank at an
early ace. Mr. Dreher thoroughly re-
velntioniied the brewery, formed im
mense store-cellars, and introduced the
slowly fermented laser beer, which soon
grew into enormous popularity. Durins
the first year of the reign of Mr. Dre
her the quantity made at Schwechat
amounted to 330.937 gallons.
In the year 1850 the brewery became
totally inadequate to the supply requir
ed ; the premises were extended, and
machinery introduced instead of manual
labor. Soon after this Mr. Dreher pur
chased a domain near Saaz, famous for
its growth of hops. lie laid Out an ex
tensive hop plantation, and also built a
brewery there, according to the modern
system. '
In 1852 he purchased the landed pro
perty Steinruch, near Pesth, and erected
a store-brewery, answering all the mod
ern demands. He had accordingly three
laree breweries.
The Schwechat brewery is the largest
on the continent. Including malt floors,
it occupies an area of twenty-one and
one-third acres. Fourteen and a qua
ter acres are covered with vaults. The
daily consumption of mault, made in the
winter, is 1.500 bushels, requiring of
six and one-third acres of area, and
storeroom tor lo.UUU bushels , ot raw
barley, and magevines for storing 60,000
bushels of malt. Machinery js employ
ed to convey the dry melt to the bruis
ers or crackers; and thence to the boil
ing-house, in which , latter are six cop
per pans, the largest holding 6,230 gal
During the working months the make
amounts to 47.348 gallons of beer daily
The fermenting rooms hold 1,264 vats,
holding 654,773 gallons.
In the subterranean cellars,' which to
gether occupy an area of three and three
qnarter acres, there are 4.317 barrels or
tuns, holdtn? from 500 to 2,500 gallons
each, or 5,160,866 gallons of beer in
At the side of the cellars, and in im
mediate connection with. them, there arc
icepits of more than two acres area in
which 40,000 tons of ice can be stowed
In the works are employed three fix
ed anri one portable steam engine, and
ne hydraulic engine; together eighty
horse power.
Thev employ 350 hrewers and brew
ers assistants, and 350 draymen and la
borers. Rails run through the who'e
establishment, and are connected with
the railrosd. The stable contain 72
hordes and 240 Hravoxen.
From the 1st of January. 1866 to the
1st of January, 1S67. 5 979,118 gallons
were produced, yielding a revenue to the
eovernment from the single brewery of
nearly $488 000.
In the Suez brewery, built , by Mr.
Dreher according to the new system in
the year lbbl. the working is not con
fined to the winter months, but contin
ues the whole yeir round, only the sum
mer m nths are devoted to the brewing
of tapping beer (Schank-beer,) a beer
peculiar to Bohemia, while the winter
months are devoted to brewing lager
beer. To effect the summer brewing without
injury to the equality of the beer, very
effective cooling apparatus is employed.
The fermenting cellars are so abundant
ly. supplied with ice that the tempera
ture in them does not exceed forty-three
fifty degrees of Fahrenheit, even in
the hottest summer months, and in the
store cellars the temperature is constant
ly kept to about thirty-six decrees Fan-

Exhibition was gained by the Schwechat
The three breweries named yield a
yearly income to Government 8628,855.
A etctehino voter, in one of the
large Canadian cities, made his appear
ance at one of the polling places at one
minute to 5 o'clock on the second day,
and was asked by one of Mr. O'Connor's
agent if he wished to vote for that gen
tleman. " O'o-o-o-oo-oo-Connor b-e-e-
1" he slowly but ener
getically replied, lhe hands of the
clock were meanwhile steadily ndvanc
ine, and whon the poor stutterer had got
halfway throuch "I y-o-o-o o-te for

and the poll closed, leaving Mr. Rankin
minus ono rote and his election.
Ths following sea story is old, but is
as true to-day as when first given to the
public long years ago :
In the course of the voyage that dread
ful disease, the ship fever, broke out
among the crew. One of the sailors,
among the first victims was accompan
ied by his son, a lad of fourteen years,
who was strongly attached to his father,
and remained with him day and night
and never could be persuaded to leave
him for a moment.
A large shark was seen every day fol
lowing the vessel, evidently for the pur
pose of devouring any one who should
die and be committed to the deep. ' Af
ter lingering a few days, the sailor died.
As was the eustom at sea. he was sewed
up in a blanket, and for the purpose of
sinking him, an old grindstone and
carpenter's ax were put in with him.'
The very impressive service of the Epis
copal Church was then read and the
body committed to the deep.
The poor boy watched the proceed
ings closely, plunged in after his father.
when the enormous shark swallowed
them both. The second day after this
dreadful scene as the shark continued to
follow the vessel (for there were others
sick in the ship,) one of the sailors pro
posed, as they had a hook on hand, to
make an effort to take him.
They fastened the hook to a long role,
and bating it with a piece of pork, threw
it into the sea, the shark instantly swal
lowed it. Having thus hooked him. by
means of a windlass, they hoisted him
on board. After he was dead they pre
pared to open him, when one of the
sailors, stcoping down for that purpose,
suddenly paused, and after listening a
few moments declared most solemly he
heard a low hutteral sound, which ap
peared to proceed from the shark.
The sailors, after enjoying a hearty
laugh at his expense, proceeded to lis
ten for themselves, when they beard a
similar sound. They then proceeded to
oppn the ehark, when the mystery was
It appears that the sailor was not dead
but in a trance ; and his son, on making
this discovery when inside the shark,
and by means of a knife ripped open the
blanket. Ilavinz thus liberated his fath
er, they both went to work and righted
up the old grindstone toe boy was
turning and the father was holding the
old ship carpenter's ax, sharpening it
for the purpose of cutting their way out
of their Jonahlike prison, which occa
sioned the noise heard by the sailor.
As it was the hottest season of the year,
and very little air stirring where they
were at work, they were both sweating
tremendously. ,
The victorious Democracy of Ohio, as
far as we can learn, point as one man
to Judge Thurman, their gallant stand
ard beaoer, to succeed Ben. Wade in the
Senate of the United States. This ac
cords with our sentiments, and, without
wishing to forestall the matter, we but
give utterance to what we believe to be
the honest sentimen's of a majority of
the Democracy of Tuscarawas county,
through the people's medium, the Dem
ocratic press. Judge Thurman had made
a gallant fight, and although defeated by
a meager majority, and that made up of
negro votes, he has earned for himself
the lasting gratitude of every true-hearted
Democrat in the State. When he was
unanimously nominated for Governor it
was with the expectation that he would
be beaten ; but he made one of the best
campaigns ever made in Ohio. We pre
dicted that ho would receive a larger
vote than any Democrat who had ever
come before us tor our suffrages. We
have not yet the means of verifying our
predictions, but the reduction of over
40,000 from the Republican majority of
last year, is of itself a record of which
he may well be proud. Aided by other
men, good and true, the white men's
standard in Ohio was never lowered.
Scores of local candidates owe their sue
cess to the indomitable energy and un
ceasinff virrilance which characterized
our friends at Columbus, whose patriot
ic and self-sacrificing efforts difftcd
confidence continually throughout the
State. As he did not seek the nomina
tion for Governor but- yielded to the
wishes of the United Democracy, and
came from his retirement to battle for
those principles which have been the
polar star ot his political life, let the
Democratic mass spontaneously do on
act of simple justice and right, and thus
strengthen themselves throughout the
State. Precedents are not wanting to
justify the Ohio Legislature in this their
plain path ot duty. 1 he people of Ohio,
n the recent election, have placed the
seal ot condemnation upon the attempt
to enforce negro suffrage npon our Estate.

Mr. Vallandigham, in a speech de
livered at Hamilton in Butler county
since the election, tells the following fish
story, which we commend to our Repub
lican readers, Mr. V. said:
" While upon "the Island of Bermuda,
one of the most interesting group in the
world historic, because Shakespeare
made it, in part, the subject of one of
hie splendid plays in traveling from
one portion of the Island to the other, I
passed by a stone inclosare, per naps a
hundred feet id diameter. The islands
are coral in their formation. There was
pool of water, full of fish, inside the
inclosure. I paid an .hngush shilling
for admission inside, where I saw per
haps a hundred fish, thoroughly tamed,
each one answering to the name by
which he was called. One' of them, I
recollect, was called Dick. I spoke to
him, as I would to a dog, and he came
and lifted up his head and allowed me to
rub his back, just as you would a cat.
Now, as I told you, if anybody else
had told me that I wouldn't have believ
ed it. But it is neverthless true. There
is just such a pool there, and there are
fish there so intelligent that they recog
nize their names. I think they oucht
to be entitled to vote. Laughter. Al
most as much so as Sambo, at least. I
would wager you that these fish would
not forget their names. Yet the negroes

his name, and Sambo didn't! I will
wager you another thing, that these fish,

A woman of color, who has had some
dealings with the Radicals, wishes to en

Henst Ward Beecher's sermon last
Sunday evening was on matrimony. He
said : " Many men get wives, and get
with then? the itch and a cursed religion.

household there is the Iaod of Canaan
When a man gets a wife he wants noth
ing more in life. Marriage is a thing
nor to be rushed into, but cautiously, re
ligiously, and discreetly performed.
Some people get married out of a bound

that they will draw themselves up there

would recommend all. therefore, to go

The four counties comprising the Die
trict which Columbus Delano claims to
represent in Congress, have gtvei a meet
glorious account of themselves at the
election just past. ' .
1. Old Licking rolls up the marnifi.

Z. Coshocton gives Tbnrmaa near!
500 majority a gain of 100.
3. Knox is completely redeemed; Ga
Banning defeated for the Leiislatore t
glorious Bob Miller elected Treasurer,
and the entire Democratie ticltt elected
by majorites raagiog from ftj to three
hundred. ...
4. Muskingum elects Jewett aal s!s
to the Legislature, and gives Thar me a
450 majority. She also electa the whole
Democratie county ticket, and along wita
Perry sends Hon. D. B. Liaa back, to

This is a glorious result in a district
fur which Delano has the impudence to
set up a claim to a seat ia Congress.
