What journal it is that has enjoyed the ad vantage ol receiving; tms vaiuame inior mation, is not stated by our French con temporary, and we are tberelore com pelled to lay the facts before our readers with such danger of inaccuracy as results from the process of translating back trom tne irerjen wnat was nrst written in Enelish. But as the Courier is not only an original and consistent defender of the South, but also, ol late, a ceaious friend of the President and his policy, we have little fear as respects the substantial accuracy of the important report we now proceed to reproduce. From October 1st to April 1st, Mr. Johnson eets out of bed at 7 o'clock in the morning, no matter at what hour he may have retired the night before. From April 1st to October 1st, he gets up at G o'clock. He never looks at the clock, but settles his mind of the time of day by means of a fat silver watch, or, as he calls it. an onion, which he carried when he was still a tailor, and which always hangs at the bedside. The first garment which Mr. J. puts on in the morning so his most intimate friend testifies is pair of flannel drawers, after which he nuts on his socks, which are generally of gray yarn, then his slippers and a pair of fustian pantaloons. Whether ne also nuts on a dressing gown, or in what man ner his neck and manly chest are pro tected, wo are not informed. However that may be, he now goes into the bath room, where he shaves and performs his ablutions, lasting generally about half an hour. He takes extreme care of his teeth, which are very handsome, and of his finger nails, which, though short, are rose colored and are cut pointed. Having got on his clothes and pared his rose colored nails, the President re tires to his private apartment, where he reads tne newspapers and writes tnose remarkable messages which he commu nicates from time to time to his friends. the Radicals." There he remains till 10 o'clock, with no company except a coffee pot, holding a gallon, which he drinks in great swallows without sugar, and a "big black cat, a favorite of its master, which always sits gravely on the desk, at the left of the inkstand. From 1U to 11 o'clock visitors are received. At 11 Mr. Johnson breakfasts with his family. "An egg, a boiled potato, a sardine and a few peanuts constitute his whole repast" Whether the peanuts are devoured raw or roasted, the intimate friend fails to tell us ; but he says that during this frugal repast "the President is very gay, and does not allow anybody but himself to talk." At noon precisely, the table is abandoned for the Cabinet meeting, or for the reception of delegations. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon Mr. Johnson coes out to walk, either' in the grounds of the White House or the streets of Washington. He has a rapid gait which is more like a trot than a walk; there are few persons whom he would not leave be hind in a foot race. "He has a corn on the little toe of the left foot, which causes him much agony, but the painful results of this infirmity are palliated by his wearing on that foot a larger boot than on the other. He always smokes as he walks; but "since he has been President he has not permitted himself to chew. Snch is his delioate sense of the proprie ties of his high station. At 4 o'clock he comes in to dinner. This is the hearty meal of the day, and in order to get up his appetite, the Presi dent drinks a stout glass of whiskey be forehand. He spends the same length of time at dinner as at breakfast but with an interesting difference. Aa we have seen, in tho morning he monopo lizes the conversation ; in the afternoon his familiars recount tohim the incidents and rumors of the day, the sayings and doings of Congress, and so forth. He eats little meat, especially pork, since the invasion of the trichina, "but he dores crabs, professes a high esteem for fried oysters, and is animated with an irresistable passion for rice pudding." He eats more bread than moBt Americans and "in summer he stuffs himself with green corn and water cresc, which he considers to be favorable to the renova- ion of the blood. At 5 o clock the inner is ended with a few glasses of port and sherry, and "a great bowl of black coffee, which he imbibes at almost ingle swallow. Now he returns to his private room. where he reads the newspapers and his favorite books. The authors he prefe! s are Plutarch, Mr. Punch, Robinson Cru soe, the Arabian Nights, and Young's Night Thoughts. At 8 o'clock he takes tea, and at 9 goes back to work again, when ke generally makes himself com fortable in his shirt sleeves. The coffee pot is bow brought in once tnorr, and at 1 t ! ., MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY -16, 1866.' midnight, when the President usually goes to bed, it is always empty. His sleep is peaceful, and, as he himself says, he never dreams, " which is the sign both of good beaitn and a good conscience. His friend also declares that he has never been heard to snore, and that "an angelic smile now and then wanderl over his lips, while Morpheus closes his eyes and pours upon him his restoring balm." Mr. Johnson is but rarely sick, and "has never employed but two remedies emetics and castor oil." , He is his own physician, and bis practice is successful Jackson as a Soldier and a Strategist. From Oen. Colston', Lecture.) The lecturer then went on to the sec ond part of his subject Jackson as a soldier and strategist He laid down with great clearness the elementary prin ciples of strategy and tactics, distinguish ing between the two, and propounded the question, whether Jackson was to be classed with thoiie second-rate command ers whose victories had been achieved by skillful tactical dispositions, hard fight ing and often accident, or those masters both of tactics and Htratcgy, such as Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar and Napo leon, whose successes were achieved in the face of tremendous odds? He then gave a masterly analysis of Napoleon's great Italian campaign in 1796, and con trasted with it Jackson's campaign in the Shenandoah Valley, showing the sim ilarity of the strategy in each, and the masterly use which Jackson, like Napo leoo. had made of the advantage position afforded him of acting on interior lines of communication and applying that grand principle of strategy which con sists in bringing his masses to bear upon the fragments of the enemy. He also gave an account of the campaign against rope, and claimed tor Jackson that bis movements and fighting entitled him at least to be ranked among the first class of leaders. The lecturer then gave a graphic description of tne circumstances attend ing Jackson's death, of the mournful manner in which he fell by the hands of his own friends, and of the terrible scenes which succeeded his fall. Jackson was a born leader, and though all bis move ments exhibited the utmost strategic abil ity, the lecturer believed that he bad never read a work on grand tactics in his life; it was in him the natural geniusand instinct of war. One ef the remarks made at his death was sadly prophetic : " He is taken away from the evil to come, and we sluill never have i.ny luck any more." He was beloved by his soldiers, ad mired by his enemies and the world. Jackson's name was honored all the world xtver, by friends and foes alike, and it was reserved for one who calls himself Governor of Virginia to say that he felt no sort of pride in Jackson, and could tee nothing for admiration in his character. Hisses But the soldiers of the Federal army always respected him and appreciated him. The soldiers of both armies had not been unmindful of the generous spirit exhibited by both of their great leaders; it was only the demagogues who kept out of the battle that kept howling for olood and confisca tion. Loud cheers. Before his death, Jackson exclaimed, " Biujc me in the Valley of Virginia, at Lexington ;" and there his remains were religiously carried, and though no tablet marks the spot, tt is consecrated by the love and affection of the whole people, while above it now towers the tfagstaff that once bore the flag for which he fought so well. At the conclusion of the address there were loud cans lor uovernor (vise, to hich the Governor responded in a few remarks, saying that no one was so well qualified to write the life of Jackson as General Colston, and he hoped that, as the Inchest compliment the meeting could pay him, they would request him to re peat his lecture at bis own convenience, but in as short a time as possible. On this being put to the vote, it was carried unanimously, and the meeting adjourned. Food Advancing. Our commercial reports for a day or two past have shown a rapid advance in two of the staple articles of food bread stuffs and provisions. In New York yesterday flour advanced 15 to 30c per bbl, and in Chicago wneat was ( to iuc higher, closing very much excited. In Dork the advance from the lowest point is (5 per barrel, and in lard 4c per lb. A good deal of this is speculation, but much ol tt is caused by snort supplies. The stubborn fact is begiuning to be de veloped in a shape not to be questioned, that the productive interests of the coun try have been in a measure neglected ; that our growth in wealth has been on paper rather than in substance, and the first fruits are a growing scarcity of food and high prices. The actual deficiency of wheat is greatly aggravated by the re ported damage to the growing crop. This is stimulative ol speculative invest ments, and prices are now not far below the highest figures realized during the war. The prospect for cheaper living is certainly not encouraging. Cincinnati Uazttte. Negro Equality in Minnesota. A man by the name of Murray, living in St Paul, Minnesota, left his family a few weeks ago, and went with an odorif erous negro woman toriewiork. uet- ting out ot mouey, he returned to at Paul to sell his household to raise the means to continue bis infamy. The St Paul i'rtss, of the Tli, tells the sequel thus : " About 1 1 o'clock last night a large crowd assembled around Murray's house. The family were aroused and the victim brought quietly into the street His clothes Were then violently tripped from hi persjn, the Ur adiaio- stered with lavish liberal. ty, and the feathers applied without regard to ex pense. Murray is said to have borne himseii meekly, and took his punishment at the bauds of his self-constituted jurors with remarkable equanimity. As soon as the tar and feathers were exhausted, the re cipient ofjsuch an evidence of public in dignation was permitted to retire, which be did with alacrity. How to Save Test Teeth. Mr. Beecher, who is something of a physician, a well as geologist, farmer, editor, author, lecturer and reformer gen erally, says : Our teeth decay. Hence bad breath. unseemly mouths, imperfect mastication. Everybody regrets it v bat is the causer It is the want of cleanliness. A clean tooth never decays. The mouth is a warm place ninety-eight degreea. Par ticles of meat between the teeth decom "-wt IiAROENT CITT CIItClLATIOX. pose. Gums and teeth must suffer, Cleanliness will preserve the teeth to an old age. Use a little prick, and rinse the mouth after eating; .brush and castile soap every morniag; then brush with pure water' on retiring. Bestow this trifling care upon your precious teeth, and you will keep them and ruin the den tists. .Neglect it, and you will be sorry an your lives. . Children forget Watch them. The first teeth determine the character of the second set Give them equal care. Su gar, acids, hot drinks, saleratus, are noth ing compared with food decomposing between the teeth. Mercury may loosen the teeth, use may wear them out, but keep them clean and tbey will never de cay. This advice is worth more than s thousand dollars to every boy and girl. Books have been written on this sub ject This brief article contains all that u essential. An Extraordinary Story. ine following is told in Berlin : "At a ball given last week, on the seventeenth birthday of the daughter of one of the noblest families, a mysterious figure a monk mask entered the saloon precise ly at midnight and disappeared, after having presented the young lady with a basket of flowers. On examining the contents, an ebony coffin, inlaid with silver, containing a bridal wreath, an arrow piercing a lily, and a paper on which was written, 'A greeting from the world of shadows.' It should be added that, though the mother became insensi ble, the young Countess did not lose her presence of mind, but continued dancing, and betrayed no emotion whatever." Killed by a Paper Collar. A child in New Jefferson, Iowa, was futally poisoned, a few days ago, by chewing pieces of an enameled collar. Exchange. We look upon paper collars as extreme ly dangerous. We knew a young lady once who was always strangely agitated whenever she came in contact with one of those apparently innocent articles Cin. Union. From the Clarksville Chronicle we learn that a tournament is to be given there by the young men of Christian, Todd and Logan counties, Ky., and Montgomery county, Tenn., on the 31st instant, for the benefit of the Orphan Asylum. Generals Forrest and Brown. of Tennessee, and General Williams, of Kentucky, are to adjudge and award the prizes. Ths Elyton (Ala.) Herald says that the wheat prop of Jefferson county is said to be unusually promising, with probably as large a crop planted as was ever known before, and the people seem to be exerting themselves to an unusual extent in their farming operations.
