Yes, give me the land Where the ruins are And the living tread light Ou the hearts of the dead; \«8, give That has legends and lays, That tell of the memories Of long vanished days. Yes, give me the land That hath story and song To tell of the strife, Of the right and tho wrong, Yes, give me the land With a grave in each Rpot, And names in the graves That shall ne'er be forgot. Yes, give me the land Of the wreck and the tomb ;* There's There's glory iu gloom— For out of the gloom Future brightness is born, As, after the night, Looms the su&rise of morn. spread, the land deur m graves— And the graves of the dead, With the grass overgrown, May yet form the footstool Of Liberty's throne— And each simple wreck In the way path of might, Shall yet be a rock In the temple of right! A Detective'* Itciiilnlscence Every oue can imagiue how varied in experience is a detective's life. The two incidents which have already been published, by no means com plete the fund of auecdote the re porter lias been, favored with. It was therefore, with the same sort of in terest one feels in listening to the narrative of an old soldier te 11 iutr the history of his battles that we heard lihe following incident repeated : l " Now remember, don't bother me ! with questious!'' " Proceed!" " We had recived information that a Sicilian had escaped from Havana aud came to this city, briiging with him the proceeds of a large robbery. The reward offered for his apprehen sion was oven greater than usual, since he was regarded as a fierce and desperate crimiual. But it was less that thau the actual excitement and love of adventure that incited us to the enterprise. It in the city ( we well knew he had cedtavored to sink ' his identity in the crowds of his countrymen who swarmed iu the lower part of the city like bees art und a hive. The peculiarity of their names, so difficult to distinguish, and the almost perfec^sameness of their per. sonal appearance, rendered this a matter of easy accomplishment. Be sides tliis, these men have a strange autipathy to the law and its officers, in their power, they invariably If further the escape of one of their countrymen, no matter of what he is accused; nor will they hesitate to fight for him it by that means his arrest can be prevented. Uuder these circumstances, you can readily couceive that, our enterprise was not one entirely free from peril. Over a hundred families crowded into the block where we suspecled our man lay concealed. The approach to this building lay through a dark alley in which more than ono police officei had lost his life. But a few weeks before a man had been literally out to pieces while pursuing through its mazes; but, neverthe less, we determined to attempt it. A little after midnight we entered *he dark vault-like alley, and grouped our way to the stairs of the building Far up in the third story we heard discussion and their criminal men in angry strange accent told of Sicilian origin. This was the p'ace we were endeavor ing to reach. Carefully, step by step, we ascended the stairs and reached the room. As we got hearer the voices became louder and tho con fusion intense, and when we stood at the door it seemed as if a perfect babe' had broke loose. We lifted tho latch and eDterod tho room—a brilliant light up the room revealing every object in tho apartment. It was a hall nearly fifty feet long and Jjalf as wide. It was occupied bv at least a dozen families. The men were scattered through the rooms, talking angrily. At our entrance, si leuoe like death prevailed. There was not a man there that did not know us. They divinod, on tbe instant, our purpose iu coming, and the rattle oi their long Spanish daggers had al ready struck with a deadly chill on The man we wero in search^ our ears. of had a huge scar that disfigured face. By this we identified him He was seated on a small chest in the upper part of the hall like room, and this chest we knew, concealed his treasure. Without a moment's hesitation, we crossed the loom, and 8-lard his hand on the Icon's shoulder; at the same instant I put my revolver at his head and told him he was our prisoner, was an iustans's silence second us t once. signt we were aga'n surrounded, aud 1 felt a savage sting, is a knife sunk deep in my shoulder, So far v*e had hesitated to shoot, but we could do so no longer. The struggle deepened, aud knife and pistol did their savage work with ieariul execution. Again aud agaiu I felt the thrust of a knife, or stag gered beneath a blow. At lust we reached the door, still dragging our man, determined to die rather than give him up. How we got down those stairs I can never tell. Sjmetitnea we descended a stop at a time ; at other moments we rolled down a dozen before stopping. We reached the lauding, however, our foes still press ing us, and the deadly fight unabated. V\ e could stand it. no longer. We were covered witii wounds and our strength exhausted. In that wild melee in that dark vault,itseemed impossible to escape, 8— blew his vhistle. Fierce and thrill the echo pealed out in the air. (rod grant it would bring assistance in time It did. We heard the patter oi coming feet, the light of a dark iautern flashed along the vaulted alley way, and then 'reeled soul and sense, aud brain and eye. When we regained consciousness we were all iu the station, our prisoner, too. We had clung to him like death, till assistance reached us. Our foes wore beaten off, and our aaptuWs made good. It was an awful struggle, such as occurs once in-a lifetime, but l shall never forget it. We secured: prize, but was many a long day before we were able to engage in an adventure attain." There a single asS-, with a dull clank, elapped the handcuffs ou his wrists and slung the small chest over his shoulder by the strap attached to it. Then, suddenly, there trose a yell of hate and vengeanco ; knives gleamed in the light aud fierce forms bouuded towgrd us. It was to bo a death struggle. Fortunately, we were close by the jet of flame that lit the apartment. With a wave of my hand l extinguished this, and made a rush from the place where we stood, drag ging our prisioner. It saved our lives. The peril was not, however, over. The next iu nur Fraoklin was a journeyman printer Dr. Thomas Bishop of Worcester, was the son of a liuen draper.

As Presentedfiy a Leading Northern Democrat _ Hon. A. G. Thurman, lately elected United States Senator from Ohio, is one of the representative tneu of the Northern Democracy. The following, therefore, from one of his late speeches, will be interesting to our readers, as giving authoritatively the feelings of the Northern Democracy towards the South, and the leading issues of the present canvass.— Ex. ' "We can form an idea of the im poverished condition of the Southern States, from the fact that the county of Hamilton, Ohio, pays more taxes than eight of the Southern States. What a picture this makes of the impover ished condition of these oppressed States. Give us the Uniou again, the union ofhearts between the people and the treasury agait). [Applause] Say to the men of" the South," Y fought for what you thought right, and when conquered, submitted like men, only asking to be treated as honorable men. Henceforth let us be friends [Applause] Hence forth you shall have protection." Say that to the Southern people, and they will have the heart to go to work, and that land will soon blossom as the rose. [Applause ] It is not six months since the cry of confiscation was heard in the halls of Congress, uttered by that most persistent per secutor of better people, Thaddeus Bteveus. [Loud applause ] I appeal to you, farmers of West Virginia, with what heart could you cultivate your lauds, if you expected the next Congress to take them aud give them to negroes. it is iny solemn belief, if, when the Confederate armies surrendered, we had treated them with magnanimity, as brave men should always treat a vanquished foe, saying, "we fought this battle to maiutaiu the integrity of the Uuion and the Constitution, aD q no w that you have laid down your arras,aud acknowedged the cause be lost, we bury the hatchet for ever"—we believe all would now have been harmony and good feeling, without the integrity of a single State being impaired. The Southern States would have been ready to beat their RW ords into plowshares, anxious to follow the pursuits of peace. Had we ac ted thus, to-day we would have been more firmly united than when t | 1B war began. I say this after ma» ture reflection. The war had the ef f uc t 0 f convincing both sections of OU certain things they did not know be fore. Some in the South thought the people of the North would not fight. Tills mistake was corrcted. The people of the North, some of them, thought the Southern people were impractible, and could not carry out extensive plans of operation in a protracted war, and with all their bluster, perhaps «ould not fight so readily. This illusion was also dis sipated by the war. [Applause] The war convinced those who held such °P' n ' ons their mistake, and made both sections respect each other. At least such were the feelings of the 8oldicrs » n both side9 > and the P eo P le > as a S eneral 'Ling, felt the same way, ulltil tho Ka(Iical politicians set them selves to work to pervert the souls of the people—until they commenced their series of oppressive measures, introducing the fourteenth amend ment, which they knew no Southern man, with a spark of houor or self respect, could for a moment consent to vote for. Men could not be ex pected to write their own dishonor in the Constitution of their country. [Those radicals knew it could never be adopted. They proposed it that it ID 'S b *' be rejected, so that they might have a pretence to keep the States ou ^ of the Union and out of the enjoy jment of their rights. It served its pn r p° se - It was got up aud used for tho purpose of putting the heel of the negro oc the neck of the white man. They abolished slavery tiiat they might introduce political slavery more absolute—that they might control the negro to carry out their own party, purposes. They would not allow the negro to vote if they thought he would vote with the South. They did Dot extend that privilege with the understanding that the negroes were to vote according to their own instincts or interest, but as loyal leaguers, organized and kept up by carpet bag adventurers. It was actuated by no love for the negro. The speaker did not believe the Radical policy could continue. Those men wore the worst enemies of the negroes in extending to them the elective franchise. It was natural. The white race never yet met an obstacle it did not overcome [Ap plause] It was impossible to believe that the white race could submit to have itself ruled by a people the most degraded on earth. [Cries of never!"] These States were uow ruled by ne groes and a class of men in the North. Suppose the people of Ohio should import a lot of negroes aud white people from that State and turn some bureau meu out of office ; suppose we should come down Here under the ausp.ces of the Jvu-Klux, in* de pose Inc officers of \\ cst \ irgmia, lou't you think these meu would find ihat somebody else's ox was gored. [Laughter and applause] But that just the way fhe peple are treated dowu South' All. history proves that people could not be governed this way. England tried it; they had tried to tuie Ireland by carpet-bag gers as we are trying to rule the South ; and to day tSe cry of Fenian, which Pat raised on American soil made the Englisb'dhrone tremble. [Cheers.] History furnished numerable examples of the kind. Permanent control could only be gained by the goldon rule. "But, us in says a pious gentleman, "why should we not treat the negro as an equal: is he not a man and brother? is he not of one blood, our fellow citizen?" And yet this man held his nose as he passed by the negro. [Laughter.] Hus he not a sou! ? Bays another, who proves that he has no soul by trying to cheat the negro thefirst opportunity he has. Judgo Thurman thought if poor taste to talk of injustico to the negro in not allowing him to vote, when ouriutelligent wives aud ^laught ers were not allowed this privilege. was in precious Why should we place the negro above our wives daughters and mothers ? There was not a recorded instance in history of a civilized negro government. The race was as old our own. They had enjoyed the same advantages, yet they had never organ ized and maintained a civilize! ernnient. There had never been ' gov an Senator Thurman closed with an exhortation to the people to work for the triumph of the democracy in the coming Presidential contest. attempt to perpetuate a government of mixed races which did not signally fail. Look at Hayti. When they became independent, dissensions at once began to spring up between the mulattos and blacks. The blacks being in the majority, drove the inulattoes to one end of the island, and they have ever since remained thus separated—These people had tried by turns, every kiud of govern ment—Republican, military aud des potic—aud they were now alternately under the control of contending gen-* erals, who vied with each other to how many negroes they could mutu^ ally kill. The race did not have in them the elements of civilization or the ability to maiutaiu civilized gov ernment, either by themselves or mixed with the white race. The First Balk from Desoto.— Our enterprising and public-spirited fellow-townsmen, Tobin, Lynn & Co.i 346 Main street, says tbe Memphis Ledger , this morning received the first bale of new cotton from Desoto county, Mississippi. The appended card explains ilself: Editors Ledger :—In accordance with our circular of August 8, 1868,' the followidg business transaction took place at our bouse to-day, viz: Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 29,1868, " Received of Tobin, Lyun & Co , two hundred and fifty dollars (8250), for the first bale of new cotton from Desoto county, Mississippi, this day delivered to them, in accordance with their circular of August 8, 1868.

Tobin, Lynn A Co., No. 346 Main stieet. A Confederate Law Suit.— The case of Greeuwood against Ripley was heard before the Vice Chancellor this week. It seems that Gen. Rip ley, who commanded at Charleston for a long time during the war, claims £100,000 in respect of the non-deliv ery of certain plant and machinery for the manufacture of Enfield rifles, originally ordered of the plaintiffs, (who were military machinists at Leeds,) for tho use of the Confederate Government, by the defendant, Gen. Ripley. The plaintiffs were williof to deliver it to whoever was entitlec to it. This is a curious case, and we should not be surprised if the Govern ment of the United States should "put its finger iu the pie." If Gen. Ripley has paid for this " plant" with Confederate funds, of course the Federal Government will claim the property ou the principle of " to the victors belong the spoils." In the meantime, the plantiff is in comfort able " possession."— London Cosmo politan. The political news from the Pacific States is hi encouraging.

An Unromantic Husband.— An auut of ours concluded to try the effect of a pleasant smile and a kind word npon her husband when tie re turned from his work. She had read bow a home should be pleasant, snd the wife should always meet the hus band with s joyous smile The sue. cess she had is best giveD in the shape of a dialouge. [Enter husband, almost exhausted, and very hungry withal, Hi rows his hat on tho floor; and drops heavily into a seat. Wife preparing tea looks up with a smile and is so glad to see hiui.] Wife—"Well my dear it is so nice to have you here at meal time." [A long smile.] Husband —"Yeas, I suppose so.,, Wife—"How has your business prospered to-day ?'' [Another smile.] Husband—"About so-so." Wife—"Come, my dear, supper is ready; let me draw your chair." [Another smile] Husband [gruffly]—"I am too tired to stir. Wait till I warm my feet." Wife—"Do as you choose my dear." [Another sweet smile.] Husband—"Look o' here old wo« man ! before any more fuss is made about it, I should like to kpow what in thunder you are grinning at." Aunt -ighed, aDd relinquished her sweet smiles from that date' Unele was not of the romantic sort, and didn't understand such things. i Waiters at Fashionable Ho tels. —A writer, who has experienced the joy of stopping at a fashionable' botsel, gives an account of his skirmish with the waiters for a breakfast: " For instance, 'Waiter, I'll take mutton chops, and an omelette and coffee.' The morning paper was nearly read, when our waiter was seen waitipg on another party a few tables off. He religiously kept his eyes in another direction from ours. The head waiter was called and asked if we were to have any breakfast. He supposed we were. But as he at once took up bis old stand at the door was evidently not quite sure nbout it. Another waiter was summoned. I picked him out because he had a sort of forlorn look, and I thought he would like to be befriended. Our order was again given. The paper was finished; at last he came with j veal outlets cold and boiled eggs, 'Coffee or tea, sir ?' 'I told you oof fee'—very tartly—'wheu I gave you the order.' This was unlucky—the fellow had no idea of standing it, for shortly after, without haviug brought the coffee, he was seen waiting on a young gentleman who put a piece of money in his hand." i i ! In a Paraguay women do all the farm work, (tending the flocks and tilling the ground) and fill the petty offices of the Government, and it is alleged that Paraguay is the only country in the wotld where woman has the perfect equality with man. She holds office, finhts, works on the farm, reornits soldiers, serves in the hospital, guardes the house tames horses, and, in fine, she is free. Man has taken off the shackles, and is equal to the situation. The following direction was on a letter which passed through the post office lately: Wood John Mass. A shrewd postmaster fipally de cided that it was intended for John Underwood, Andover, Mass. i , When General Grant reached Den ver, Colorado, all the soldiers of Company B, Third Infantry, saluted him with a Seymonr and Blair flag.; The GoneralApit unable to remain iu that town, oreven to alight from the coach. The insanity of George Francis Train is now eatablished. A citizen of Louisiana, who lately visited Train at bis prison in Great Britain, writes back that Train intends soon to de clare himself a candidate for the Presidency of the United States.— ' Traiu also claimed that John D. Perry, P of the Kansas City branch of the Pacific Railroad, owes him 8300,000 and ask him to write to Perry to send him a check for the money. The Virtue of Joe Brown. —The LaGrange, (Ga.)
