From the Western Celt. There is not a chapter in the history of the lata "States Rights War," that does not afford a thinking Irishman ample food for grave reflection. The best of our race have fallen in the battles ot other countries; not a nation almo.it on the face of the earth, that an Irishman has not fought and bled for. Where'er we turn, whether on the banks of the Mississippi, or the fairy-like slopes of the Ganges, when on the heights of In kerman or Fredericksburg, the bones of Irishmen are bleaching as monuments indelible to meet but a passing remark from the historian. The name of Ireland should be re spected, nay, held sacred; the ashes of Irishmen have made sacred the soil of almost all the nations of the world; it matters not where their services were needed, whether in the field or the sen ate, their devotion to their adopted country, entitles them to the honorable position ot brst citizen ot tbe world Well may America be proud and thank ful for the noble part the Irish exiles have plaved in delivering this country from the usurpation of the scarlet tyrant of the old world. Well may he trace on the brightest pages of her history, the names of Irishmen who have done snch valorous deeds in driving from their adopted country an old and bitter enemy. b.ven in our own time, in that fearful struggle of brother against brother, we may regret the countless thousands that have perished in delend ing the rights of their respective States. Ah! well we . remembr some of those sdendid Irish regiments, numbering a thousand and upwards after the battle was fought and won, could not muster enough to form a captain s company. Among those who fell there is none we more earnestly regret than General Pat rick RoDayne Cleburne. Ireland re members him, one of her noblest eons, a gentleman of the truest type, a chival rous spirit, whose prayer during life was to die in the cause of his native country. He was born in Coye, county of Crk. He was induced to make America bis home, and happened to be a resident of Helena, Arkansas, at the commence ment of that disastrous civil strife. He naturally cast his fortunes with-those of his State, and became one of the most successful organizers of the Southern armies. He quickly rose to an impor tant command, and won the most com plete victory of the war at Richmond, Kentucky, for which he received the thanks of the Confederate Congress. In December. 1862. be was promoted to the rank of Major General, and fought at Murfreesboro'. He defeated Rosencrans at Chiekamauga, and again received the thanks of Congress; he continued to do service for the cause he espoused; his name became a terror to thoBe who imme diately opposed him. In the winter of 1864 he assumed the command of tbe forces of Generals Hood and Harden, with the rank of Lieutenant General. DuriDg Cleburne's operations in Ten nessee, and almost in view of Franklin Hill, he happened to pass through a lit tle graveyard, followed by his staff; on coming to a green little knoll in this vil lage of the dead be paused; the members of his staff immediately formed around him. Relieving some new movement were to be executed, or important dis patches to be sent, they continued to watch with breathless anxiety the giant like figure of their chief; after a painful silence, the General, whose countenance wore a sad smile, slowly raised bis eyes and turning to his faithful subalterns said; "Ah! gentlemen, it is well worth dying for, if a man could be buried in such a lovely spot as that." Shortly after, Cleburne cave battle to the North ern troops at Franklin Hill, where he fell at tbe head of bis brave soldiers, fightiog his last fight for the dying Con (ederacv, on the 30th of November, 18C4 A few members of his staff, who escapsi the carnage of that fatal day, rememUred the touching episode of the graveyard, u4 ri"Urned wlth 'J16 re' mains of their noils Liter, and tem porarily, but affectionately, laid h:m to rest in that green little knoll, which he but a day or two previous made memo rat.lo. T. M01.0NY. ft. Louis, JfaveinberJO. 1S74. In addition to tlua ft!;ov interesting reminiscence it might be added tfidl jujt before that fatal charge on the breast rorki at Franklin General Cleburne de livered a ibprt, incisive speech lo u'.Z division, In which ha psed tbe words: " I am not now fighting for Jilajrtr, !)ut for vengeance." He said that the " cause " was lost, and be, like a knight of nj.i, expected to be killed, aud wished to die raibr thja survive the ultimate result, earns years after ins qeaia oi General Cleburne his remains were cou- j vrTed to Ueiena, Ark , via Memphis, and the pe?le of Msmpb's turned cut en' c JLU MEMPHIS TENN.: masse as an escort for the remains of tbe hero, and conveyed them from the Charleston depot to the boat. So long as the pages of history can be nnfolded, and so long as the people of the South can transmit to posterity the annals of the glorious struggle for liberty, so long will the name of Patrick Romayne Cle burne be beloved and revered. Tricked by a Prims Donna, When Madame Alboni was in Berlin tbe director of the theater Delia Scala, in Milan, resolved to engage her for a week or two. He accordingly set out fost haste for Berlin. In a village near nspruck some part of the carriage was broken, and our impressario was obliged, much against his will, to halt. In very ill humor he set out for a promenade through the village, while the smith was repairing the carriage. Sauntering list lessly along be suddenly heard singing and such singing. Never had he heard so sweet, so clear, so heavenly a voice. For awhile transfixed with astonishment, he at lenath approached the house, and soon found himself in the presence of the songstress. She was a handsome Tyroleese maiden of uncommon graces and dignity, and was entertaining three children, who were intently listening to her. He apologized for his intrusion, and begged to know if the fraulem under stood music, or if what he had just heard was mere natural talent. She replied that she understood music. Ine direc tor immediately drew from his pocket some sheets of La Kille du Kpgiment, which he chanced to have with him, and reauented her to sing a few passages The Tyroliene smiled and complied with as much good nature as talent and aoil Uy. The director was enraptured. "Mademoiselle!" he exclaimed, was on my way to tferliu to make an engagement with Madame Alboni, the great European celebrity, but I have found you and will go no further. Al boni could suit me no better than you do. I offer you two thousand francs per night, and engage you for twelve repre sentations. - " And how much had you offered Majame Alboni?" " Madirue Alboni! Oh, that is d'uTer- ent; 1 should have given ner at least nve thousand francs. out, mademoiselle, bethink you, she has an unrivaled name and fame, while you ore wholly un known." "Yet yon told me a moment ago that Madame Alboni could suit you no better than I. I am then entitled to the same salnrv that you intended for her." "That is impossible, mademoiselle, Will you accept three thousand francs?' No." "Four thousand?" " No." "Then, mademoiselle, adieu. 1 can Hive no more; for as you are entirely un known. I risk everything you nothing, Yon might make your fortune and that of your family, lou refuse to do so, Adieu." The director reached berlin and in mured for Madame Alboni tie was told that she was still in tbe the country, where she had been spending the sum mer with ber foster sister. "Where?" "In Tyrol." "In Tirol? At what place?" "In N , two hours' ride from Inns- pruck. "I am raised." Returning, he sought his peasant maiden. "Madame!" he cried,"you are no longer unknown. You have played me a fane trick ' "I! Listen, Monsiour Director. You mar know me; but as you were this morning so nnwise as to resign me for the peasant maiden, I now decline en tering into any engagement with you." The Care ol Babloa. A baby is a very tender thing, people say; but most of them are very tar trom knowing how tender. Imagine how ner vous yon are in certain states when recovering from illness, say, when the fall of a book or tbe slam of a door makes you quiver and feel faint, as if some one gave you a blow. That is the way a young baby feels at its best. A puff of wind will set it gasping, its little breath blown quite away, a noise mages it shiver, a change of summer air makes it turn death cold. A baby is the most nervous of beings, and the tortures it suffers in going to sleep and being wakened by careless sounds when just " dropping off" are only comparable to the same experience of an older person during an acute nervous headache. Young babies ought to pass the f'rst mouths of their lives in the coun try, for its stillness no less than its fresh air. But where silence is not to be commanded, baby may be soothed by folding a soft napkin, wet in warmish water, lightly over the top of its head, its eyes and ears. It is the best way to put nervous babies to sieep. i nave inea it hundreds of times for a child so irrita ble that paregoric and soothing syrup only made it wider awake. A fine towel would be wet and laid over its head, the ends twisted a little till it made a sort of skull cap, and though baby sometimes fought against being blindfolded in this way, five minutes usually sent him off into deep and blissful slumber. Tbe compress cooled tbe little feverish brain, deadened sound in his ears, and shut out everything that took his attention, so that sleep took him unaware. Teething bgbies find th,isv7 pqinforting, for their beads are always hot, find there is fe; vered beating in the arteries each side. Tbe Pope and Hie Tenants. At a little distance from one of the gates of Rome, and looking down upon the waters of tbe Tiber, is a small but pptty vineyard, of which the Holy Father is hiu.s!f thp owner. As one stands upon its gentle slopes, one catches rome beautiful glimpses of the surround ing scenery, and can trace the windings of the river almost on to its meeting with tta oca. he terraces aje exquis'tely laid out, and tua boo. ci tile vito dressers round about give evidsnce of the happiness and the comforts which his eaioy under tbe kindly aud fos tering proprietorship of the Sovereign Pontiff. Every year since bis captivity bis tenants, gooerally accompanied by their wives and little children, come to the Vatican, and bear with them to the Pope some floral and fruit offerngs frbm off his estate. This year they made their vif.it a few days since, er.i awaited the Holy Father as he was taking bis aou'tomed walk in the Vatican girdcis. When he approached thry fell on their knees before him, and WA fTCU .-Ciy LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION. WEDNESDAY EVEN begged his blessing. He gave it with a cheerful smile, and then they tendered him their autumnal tribute of love and gratitude. He accepted it with evident gratification, praised them for their in dustry, and reminded them to be grate ful to God for the fruitfulness with which He had rewarded their toil. Before they left the precincts of the Papal prison his Holiness gave to each of the deputation a medal of silver. Clettiut; Tbe Beat efHIs Parlablon. era. From the Worooster Spy. Old Dr. Strong, of Hartford, was not often outwitted. On one occasion be had iavited a yonng minister to preach for him, who proved rather a dull speak er, and whose sermon was unusually long, The rjeorjle became wearied, and as Dr, Strong lived near the bridge, about the time for the commencement of the after noon service he saw his people llockin an.rnaa the river to the other church. He readily understood that they feared that they should bear tbe same young man i the afternoon. Gathering np his wits. which cenerallv came to his bidding, he said to the young minister: " My brother across the river is very leeote, ana I know he will take it kindly to have you nrpnr.h to his neonle. and if you will d so I will give you a note to him, and will tJ . much obliged to you as I would to have you preach for me, and 1 want you to preach the same sermon you preached to my people mis muruiug. iub;uuu; minister. sunDOSing this to be a com mendation of his sermon, started off in good spirits, delivered his note, and was invited to Breach, most cordially. He saw before him one half of Dr. Strong' people, and they had to listen one hour aud a halt vo tbe same numcirum sermon that they heard in the morning. They understood the joke, however, and said they would never undertake to run away from Dr. Strong again. How the Prealdent'a Dnuejbler Clot Another present. From the Louisville Courier-Journal.) I am reminded of a joke that was nlaved on a poor man when Nellie Gran was married. He haDDened in Washing ton about that time for some matters of personal interest. A wag wrote a para- rrnnh for one of the DaDers that thi gallant gentleman had traveled to Wash ingt in for the purpose of makiug a mag niheent bridal present ot a tan to aus Nellie. A lengthy description was given of the fan. and. as the writer had a bnl liant imagination, there was no limit to the costliness of the pearl frame, exam site paintings, point-lace cover, and re splendent with diamonds, and monogram of the same precious gems. The poor man was thus placed in a very embar rassing position. Of course, as such notoriety was given to his offering, there was no alternative left him but to pro cure a fan as nearly resembling the de- scriDtion as it was possible to find. But oh I what an inroad was made in hi finances by the fan he purchased. SPECIAL NOTICE.
