Setter than 9oll. Better than grandeur, better than, gold, Than rank and titles a thousand fold, Is a healthy body, a mind, at ease, And simple pleasures that always please, A heart that can feel for a neighbor's woe And share his joys with a genial glow, With sympathies large enough to enfold All men as brothers is better than gold. Better than gold is a conscience clear, Though toiling for bread in an humble sphere, Doubly blest with content and health, Untried the lust an cares of wealth, Lowly living and lofty thought Adorn andenoble a poor man's Cot, For mind and morals, er Nature's plan, Are the genuine test of a gentleman. Better than gold is the sWeet repose Uf the eons of toil when their labors close; Better than gold is the poor man's sleep, And the balm that drops on his slumbers deep; Bring sleeping thoughts to the downy bed Where luxury pillows his aching head; His simple opiate labor deems A shorter road to the land of dreams, Better than gold is a thinking mind, That in the realm of books can find A treasure surpassing Australian ore, And live with the great and good of Voure, The sage's lore and the poet's lay, The glories of empires pass aWay; . The world's great drama will thus enfold And yield a pleasure better than gold, Better than geld is a peaceful home, Where all the fireside charities come, The shrine of love and the heaven of life, Hallowed by mother, or sister, or wife. However humble the home may be, Or tried by sorrow by heaven's decree, The blessings that never were bought or sold, And centre there are better than gold. IT he Destiny of Josephine, The history of Napoleon is yet to be written, aud by an American. The world has been amused with fables of this man of destiny, which have been transmitted as heir-looms until they have reached him Who now sits upon the throno of ranee, and is pleased with the title, "the man of destiny." This, though a favorite idea With eve ry class of Frenchmen, undoubtedly arose from the story of Josephine, and through her attachment for Napoleon. Though her simple story is smothered in the more brilliant ono of her husband, yet it is well known that long before Napoleon's admirers claimed for him the destiny he finally accomplished, it was a common story in Paris what we are about to tell. It was while almost a child that Jo sephine, in some of her wanderings with her school-fellows, came across a vagrant Gipsey or fortune-teller. The Woman, attracted in some- way toward the beauti ful child, insisted upon telling her for tune, even against her will and without reward. She told her that she would very Boon be a wife, a widow, and after ward Queen of France. The prediction in itself was common enough, but as simple as it was it had its effect upon Josephine, who immediately embraced it as a fact, and could for a long time think of nothing else When the fulfilment came to the first part of the prediction, it of course errongtbeneJ her in the belief of the rest ; land even when in prison under sentence of death, and her bed was taken from her Because sue wa3 to die in the morning, she bade her friends have courage that it Would not be so, and that she would sit unon that throne, then in ruins beneath bood f f Hob ierrft . alld hen the jailors, in derision, called upon her to name her maids of honor, that they might bo ready when she was Queen, she did so, and her nomination was finally fulfilled to a letter. Oh that very night Robespierre fell. Had his downfall occurred one week earlier, Josepine's husband would not have been one of his victims ; had he lived one day longer, she Would have been another of them. There Was but, little lapse of time be tween her liberation from prison and her marriage to Napoleon, and it Was by the influence she exerted that he Was appoint ed to the command of the army in Italy; after which the path that led theifl np ward was clear and open, tuitil the desti ny she had insisted upon was accomplish -edj and the cioWn of Franco was placed Upon her head. But thefa Was fine tbing mote that Jo sephine had foretold for herself, which Was the utter loss of the power and rank to Whiih she had beep so Wonderfully cl ervnted j and still While she brooded over f,h?p; Napoleon, who was het lord, gn(b eriog Be'W power and yielding 10 Hew sm frittotre, she tried to crush it, arid t-J yulhi out what should be its true aims; but he Was ah Emperor, and desireu to be the founder of a hew empire, How well her instincts told her that the titn? was rapidly approaching when that ambition Would make him put her away ! Then came the close of the cam paign of 1809, and she saw that the hour was approaching still nearer that was to seal both their fates. There Was no long er the confidence of the past between them ; no longer the seeking of sympa thy and advice. It was the 20th of November, 1809, and the court was especially gay, in hon or of the visit of the King of -Saiony, Josephine Bat at the window of her bou dior, looking out on the river, when she heard a step at the door, and rose to re ceive Napoleon, who caught her in his arms with more of an olden time embrace than she had known for months. She led him to the sofa on which she had been sitting, and seated herself by his side. For a few momenta there was silence, and he spoke : "Josephine, you have been weeping. Are yen unhappy ?" " No, sire ! not with yott." " Nonsense 1 Josephine ; whom do you call sire ? Of late you are making these forms overshadow all our happiness." " Then, why should they not be for gotten by both ? You have bow reached that point of ambition that should con tent you. ill you turn the unquiet god from your bosom, and own your own hap piness?" 11 You misunderstand me, lady," he said, quickly rising from his seat, and leaning against the window. " I am seek ing nothing for myself, but everything far France' "It is for France, Napoleon," she said, drawing close to his side and taking his hand in hers, " that you would out away from you not only a true wifeVot a true friend. Think not that I have been blind, Bire, to this. My alarmed heatt has told me all ; and believe me, that 1 am offering not protest to your will, but oh, sire ! examine well your heart before you act I He stood silent while she was speak ing, and then, with face turned full Upon the streaming moonlight, he drew away his hands. She Went on : " And oh, sire, believe me, that though am to leave your throne and your side, I shall never cease to love you, too deeply for my peace. Therefore it is that I plead that you will look Well into your heart before you yield your future to bad counsels." He drew quickly from the window and Walked forward to the centre of the room. a. a l 1 A " lotl Cannot sympathize With me, madam ; I act only with reason. The good of an individual must yield to the good of France. Farewell !" " Stop J said she ; and Josephine stepped quickly across the room and caught his arm, drawing him as she did so again to the window. " Do you see that star?'' and she pointed to one of marked brightness. " That is my destiny. By it you have risen To it Was promts ed a throne. Through me you have ac complished it ; part from me and you fall. Yes, fall to die in sorrow, neglect and exile ! Remember this, Napoleon, and remember these words when it is too late to recall the act that no words of mine can prevent." Napoleon gazed almost in terror at her, who stood like a prophetess gazing out with eyes of fire upon the heavens, and then with a heart clouded almost to sick ness, he turned away and left the room without a word. Ten days psssed before he had nerve to strike the blow that broke the golden chain that bound them, and from that mo ment, as he afterwards acknowledged at 8t. Helena, the fall of Napoleon began, until he died a broken-hearted exile upon an island in mid-ocean. Disgraceful, The humiliating spec tacle presented by the Vice-Fresident, Johnson; at the inauguration ceremony, and the puerile and contemptible address of the President, Mr. Lincoln, were not the enlV marked incidents of the day. The Washington Correspondent of the New York Express thus notices it: THE DAY FOK THE NEGROES. The negroes were thick in the Capitol, Inauguration day, and Saturday night, were numerous in the White House, to the exclusion of hundreds and hundreds of white Republicans, Who had come hun dreds of miles to see the scene. The crowd about the White House Was so great that the whole block, at one time, was filled With white taOOj and wonsen, ami negroes; unable t get in, TftE oldest journal in the world is pub lished in Pekiu, It is. printed on silk and has appeared every Week for tnete than a thousand yearsmore tnari six hOnrlred years before Colanihtts discov ered Amcriort. What an interesting Vol ttmb Were they ail bound. John Waggoner's Reeruit tf it's bragitig, sir, here goes Jr a bf ag I I'm going to put it in print. t am a plain matt in most respects but itt OOe respect I am a little peculiar. In reSpeot to keeping sober under circum stances that make other men drunk, 1 never met any man like me. The vicious monarch the Temperance Society is op posed to, has no terrors for John Waggo ner, I presttmO yOtt may have heard of that fire-eating Southern chip What wa9 his name ? who used to boast in Wash ington before the war that he "was born insensible to fear." He must have been an awful booby, if he didn't tell a fib -that's my opinion Of him. Whether I Was 'bortt insensible' to fear Of "King Al chy, the serpent," I don't just remem ber. At any rate it's a fact that liquor can't fuddle me a bit not a bit. But bless your heart, that I never thought a bragging matter. I've got a swill tub down at the farm that will hold more li quor than any man I ever saw. When t Was in the army t WaS a teeto tler in principle, Every man has his own bit of influence in this world, and I never gave any comrade of tains a .chance to say that he drank because John Waggoner drank. I don't believe whiskey makes a soldier bravo, even though it may make him reckless. A good soldier takes care of himself that's my experience. He don't go to war to be killed, he goes to fight. Give the enemy fits, and look ottt for Number One all tho same, is my motto. If t don't hate a mean man t am tint acquainted with my own sentiments. Since I was a boy it has always been a source of pleasure to kick a mean rttah morally or phisirfally whenever the good Lord sent me a favorable opportunity. I've seen many a meati man in my day. I'Ve seen a man that was so mean that he abused his wife till she got diverced from him, and then tried to get her to be his mistress. But in my humble opinion I've been a soldier, sir, and faced my country s foes under fire there s no meaner style of man livibj than '.hi fel low who tries to make dirty money by dealing in substitutes. t rend the papers pretty Oafefully, and dont skip the advertisemebts. I have got a deal of good out of advertisements at differeht times. Last week I read an advertisement of a substitute broker who is homed Miggs, in the city. Pleuty oth ers like him there were, to be sure; but my way of dealing with a swindle.r is to pick out one oi the swindlers and give him a handling. I bicked oui Mics; and went to town to see what the prospect! ... might be for handling him The first man I met was Joe Smith, and I told him I'd got a little job to do, and I wanted his help. Joe kboWs" me. " All right," says he. " What is it John?" " Do yott know a chap named Miggs?'' " Substitute swindler?" says he; " Yes; C. E. Miggs." M Guess I do ! He's been trying to get me to sell myself to him cheap." " For a sub?" " Yes." " You don't say! Come, this ie just the talk Find me Miggs, will you ? I'm a substitute ' " Pooh! You ain't going to let one of those dirty sharks gobble you up and make a hundred dollars out of you, are you John j" " He won't make more than that out of me, any hoW. All I ask of you is to set him on. Tell him to get me drunk, and I am his man; I will be !" " Oh, I see !" John you aro a geod egg. iiere s my nana. He was straight off, and I Waited Ob the corner for him. Pretty soon he came back with Miggs a lean chap, with sore eyes abd a terrible voice. He was dress ed in a shiny broad-cloth suit, and Wore a blue vest With regulation buttons I could have knocked him down for that, " Mr. Miggs," said Joe, " let me intro duce my friend j John Waggottet, frdm the country. I want you to show hita the elephant, Miggs. Mr. Miggs knows the city like a book, John. He'll take care of you. Come round to toy house to-morroW, and I'll be more at leisure than I am to-day." Joe went off, and left Miggs and I standing on the corner. " You're my game eonntryi" Oh, am I ? thought I j but I looked peaceful. " Smith's a good feJloW, ain't he?" pi ped Migga. " Yes," said I, " he's Well enough, but he's too darned particular for me. He don't never drink With a: feller, and if there is any thing I like it is. not tea;" "Ho! ho hei" fiqueakod the sore cyed snbstituffi broker j " that's a good rinft. fttir eh I f saV. 11 ils havO so'nie- , , 1 thing."

The following graphic account is glVBh Of what took place when Uirard's will was read ; how his " affectionate rela tives " received the intelligence that he had given his estate to the orphans and the poor, rather than them : ' Death having dissolved the powerful spell of a presence which few men had been able to resist, it was to be sec how ! far his will would be obeyed, now that he s 0tlonScr ab,e personally, to enforce it. The old man lay dead in hits house on Water street. While the publk, but of doors, wero curious enough to learn What he had done with his money, there was a smaller number within the house, the J kindred of the deceased in Whom this curiosity raged like a mania. They in vaded the cellars of the house, bringing up bottles of the old man's choice Wine, and kept up a continual carouse. Sur rounding Mr. Duane, who had been pres ent nt Mr. Girard's death, and remained to direct his funeral, they demanded to know if there was a will. To silence their indecent clamor he told them there was, and that he was one of the execu tors. On hearing thiflj their desire to learn its contents rose to fury. In vain the ex ecutors reminded them that decency re quired tho will not to be opened till after the funeral. They even threatened legal proceedings if the will was not immedi ately produced ; and, at length, to avoid a public scandal, the executors consented to have it read. These affectionate rela tives being assembled in a parlor of the house in which the body of their benefac tor lay, the will was taken from the iron safe by one of the executors. When he opened it, and wa3 about to begin to read, he chanced to look over the top of tho document at the company seated before him. No artist that ever held a brush could depect the curiosity, the freniy of expectation, expressed in that group of palid faces. Every indi vidual expected to leave the apartment the conscious possessor of millions , for no one had even dreamed of the proba bility of his leaving the bulk of his es tate to the public. If they had ever heard of hie saying that no one should be a gentleman upon his money, they had forgotten or disbelieved it. The opening paragraphs Of the will all tended to con firm their hopes, since the bequests to existing institutions were of small amount. But the reader soon reached the part of the will which assigned to ladies and gen tlemen present such trifling sttms as five thousand dollars, ten thousand, twenty thousand ; then be arrived ere long at the sections that disposed of millions for the benefit of great cities and poor children. Some of them made not the slightest at tempt to conceal their disappointment And disgust. Men Were thore who had mar rid with a view to share the Wealth of Gi rard, and had been Waitiog years for his death. Women were there Who had look ed at that event as the beginning of their enjoyment of life. The imagination of the reader must supply the details of the sceoe which We might think dishonored human nature, if we could belie'vtf that human nature was meant to be subjected to ttfeb a eWai," theftt art. doubtless, fuller barticular9 to be had When the excitement Of the hour Shell havs. in eotae degree, abated. The leading points are these: A grfit effsrt is being made in StOW Township to clcer that sub district from the coming drat. For the purpose of obtaining the requisite funds, the young mcii of the township Have been devoting themselves, for sSvefa! days and weeks, to soliciting mofc'ey front men Republicans and Dem ocrats of the district. They had ap pealed to one Wm. (Jrabam, a wealthy Farmer, living hear Stow Corners, for aid, and he had premised to giVe one hundred dollar. Bttt when lwd young taett bf the digtrict called oh him to obtaib it-, he refused utterly to pay. As he Was bouttd by hi9 pormise, they determined that he should make good his pledge; but before proceeding further they "returned to take counsel with their associates. It Was re solved that twenty young men of the dis trict should call on him, and they accor dingly mounted, yesterday afternoon, and we're riding over to hia farm, when at some distance fVortt it, they were suddenly ordered to" hal t by this bushwhacker, Wm. Graham , rhrj had heard of their intentions and had arthed himself with two revolvers and a double-barreled rifle, and planted himself in c bovert hear Stow Corners. The armless ttavaldade raited, when Gra ham fired ahd bfotight dowtt one of the men with a shot in the left side. He im- '; mediately shot another through the head, killing him instantly; the youtig men, as they were defense- less, scattered and dashed away. The fiend, not content With his deed, approach ed the man first shot; Who Was still liVirlg althotigh bis wound was mortal; abd dis' patched him with a shot in the fore head. A surgeon was summoned post-haste by the young men, but Graham stood over the corpses and Would nOl allow him to Come near, threatening to kill him if he made the attempt. He declared that he Would give himself dp to the Trustees of the tbWn if they would come with a flag ef truce ahd pledge him protection. Presently the Sheriff , bf" the codnty, Wii a pnxse, bad arrived from Akron, whence they bad bee Summoned, but on thbir approach Graham fnh, arid Was cap tured Only after receiving a shot in his right iirtii, Which Completely disabled him. He was then afrCstcd and taken id Akron where he Was put in confinement. The Loyal Party. The Washing ton correspondent of the Cincinnati Com mercial says : It is a positive fact; of Which I hate personal knowledge; that the fate of one of fhfe most important provisiohs Of the tax bill, in the last Congress, was decided by rt drunken YotS: On the first roll Call the vote stdod nineteen tfl twenty. The minority defeated it by drumming Up two tipsy recruits from the Hole in the Wall, and telling them to vote with them; which they did, Without asking What was the question, artd apparently without caring a fig how it was decided. If it had been a question of peace or War it would have been all the same. As it Was, it involved millions Of dollars for the public treasu ry, and if you had asked the worthy Couple next morning how they voted, they could not hare told you, I am sure. Some gentlemen connected with the Un ion press are very liberal In their denun ciations of Congressional intemperance, When they can find an unfortunate cop peahead at fault, but have not a word to say when some cf the Isadora ef their own party come staggering to their desks in a state of disgustful inebriety. This is neither just nor decent: The offense is much greater when committed by a member of the party intrusted With the conduct of national affairs, than When the criminal belongs to the minority, frem whence nothing extraordinarily virtuous is expected. AJt Asecdote of General Sherman. When General Sherman was ia com mand at Benton barracks, St. Louis, he was in the habit of visiting every part of that institution, and making himself fa miliar With every tbing that Was going on. He were an old brown coat and a "stovepipe hat," and Was not generally recognized by the minor officials or the soldiers. One day while Walking through the ground; he met With a soldier who was unmercifully beating a mule. "Stop poUndinsr that mule," Mid the General; "Git cout !" Said' the soldier, in bliss ful ignorance of the person to whom he was speaking. "I tell you to stop!" reiterated the General. "You mind your business, and I will mind mine," replied the soldier, eon tinning his flank movement upon the mole. 'I tell you acain to stop!" Said the Genera): "Bo yon know who I am? I am General Sherman." "That's played out !" paid the soldier. "Every man who comes along here with an eld brOWri coat etid a stove-pipe hat on claims to bO Gen, Sherman." It in pre'sdmSd that for once General hhcrraan considered himself out flank- trd i ... . ..... - . i f A Va LPABt-fe Hit. A friend who Wai present dbrin the late term of the Court of Common Pleas, in this cityj relates the following amttsing incident that took piacS some days before tho adjoumthBttt: There Was a trial pending before the Court in Which the plaintiff was a wiiite ttiari abd the defendant a negro. After the jury Was full, the Court asked If there were any Objections to the jttry? Where upon Mf. W.j cdbDsel fttr the defendant; arose and earnestly enquired f said jttry if there Was arty-one ef them Who enter tained any prejudices against the colort tt race ? There Was ho answer. Thereup on, Judge K., Counsel for jdalhtiffj sol emnly arose, and, with gravity ahrj earni estness, asked the jury if there Wert any of them who had any prgjA&toei djdink (he loftffe WAn? The hit Was SO palpable that both Court And spectators joined id a hearty laugh over a joke, that was fully equal to one of Father Abraham's bet.-i Chxittcothe Advertiteri. Commercial Panic m New Yoitit. ? There was a considerable panic on the 15th in all the markets and business bir clea. The Express says there Was a ejfci era! feeling of depression and Uneasiue;--! at the produce exchange. Fldttr declined 1015 cents ; Wheat 6(al9 cents j cof A 3 cents, lard 1 cent, butter 12 cents, pork declined 25, cotton declined 3 cents. In good merchandise there is a heavy feeling, in dry goods especially. Cotton fabrics are lower. Gold opera tors are in trouble, aud eight Or ten firma have failed -among them are F. Waruef and Cassazi k Co. Two large firms id the1 butter trade have gone up. Don't Like His Looks. A Sberitf was once asked to execute a writ against a Quaker. On arriving &t hie hottse, he saw the Quaker's Wife, who, in reply the inquiry Whether her husband Was nt home, said he was; at the, same tiine re quested him to bfe Seated, atlu het husband would speedily see him. The officer waited patiently for some time, wUea tho fair Quakeress corning into the room, ha reminded her of her promise that he might see her husband. "Nay, fribnd, I promised that hb wtittht See thee; He h as seen thee ! He did uot like thy looks, therefore he avoided thee and hath departed from the house by another path." i-imi He that gives good advice bui'.d with enc hand; he that giVes good Coun sel and example builds with both; but ha that gives good admonition and bad cs ample builds With one Haud end pgll down With thS Other. The Cincinnati Commercial of BalhrJ day says; Our distinguished Vice President, the Hen. Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, is en a visit te F. P. Blair, at Silts- Spring Maryland, Where it is expected he will try fresh air and watr as a medicine.--The rarity ef the Use of the latter ar lH-m by the gentleman; may make the experi ment perilens. Hi IN the History of Americai b Baf- tlett, these memorable words of Wavhiflg trJfi appear in speaking of Government Contractors: "I would to fied," said he.
