Douglass was tbe lion of the Radical Convention at Phila delphia, Annie Dickinson may bo termsd the lioness. The Commercial's Philadel phia correspondent says: "After the adjournment to-dav, loud calls were mada for Bcd. Battler and Governor Brownlow, but neither of these gentlemen appearing, the audience de manded Miss Annio Dickinson, who had been occupying a seat in familiar prox imity to Ben. Wade, 00 the platform, all day. Jsliss Annie acknowledged the compliment by appearing at the Presi dent s desk, whither she was escorted by Senator Fowler, of Tennessee, who, at her request, asked that she be excused from speaking, on a promise to speak to-morrow. That would not do.however. The audience was irrepressible in its demands. Miss Annie had to come forward. She bowed, and the audience hurrahed. Then she said her heart was full, and pressed her hand to her bosom to show how full it was. She neglected to say what it was eo.lull of, but pimply Btated that it was so full she could not speak to-day. tone had been so overwhelmed by the generosity and the earnestness of the Southern men to-day, that her lipa were silent and her tongue refused its office. Here the audience cheered again, probably from sheer astonishment that a woman's tongue should refuse its office. iiier neart tnroDDea, Annie saiu, in an TT 1 1.1 tiia swer to what she had heard to-day, and now that the men of the South had spo ken lor the rights ot the colored race, she would speak for the rights of hers, North and South. To-morrow she would say something, perhaps, and then the gentle Annie tipped her head at the audience and disappeared from the rostrum, and followed by loud cheers and cries for I Ben. Butler, Ben. Wade, and several others who were not present." Look on This Picture. Then on inai. This Radical Congress voted the black soldiers $300 for extra bounty, and ap propriated the money to pay it. It also voted the white soldier ?50 in some cases in others $100 extra bounty, but made no appropriation to pay it. - - 1 he black soldiers are drawing their $300 extra bounty. The white soldiers must wait until Congress can be induced t make an appropriation for them. When the black was concerned, the Radical Congress made no mistake. It was only when the white needod its ser-? vices that it was careless, indifferent, or hadn't time. Enquirer. ., "Mike,1' said a bricklayer to his hod man "if yon meet Patrick,' tell him to make haste, as we are waiting for him."

Oi The Decency Party. A special from St. Louis, Mp., says: "On the first of September the Conserva tives assembled at Colorado, in Carroll uounty, jho., lor tne purpose ot organi zing a Johnson Club. Gen. Shields and Col. Hale were announced . for speeches on the occasion, but unfortunately cir cumstances over which they had no con trol prevented their attendance. William Smith Peter, Esq.. who, en account of the absence of ether speakers, was waited upon by armed Radicals, who swore that no Johnson Club should be or ganized there, and that he would not be allowed to speak. Seeing that the Kadi cal outlaws were intent upon shedding the blood of peaceable, law-abiding Un ion men,rather than allow them the right of freo speech, Mr. Smith Peter adjourn ed the meeting. " ' ' The Cincinnati Times has received the following in answer to a matrimonial ad vertisemeiit: it 13 from Spring Hill, Ten nessee: : - " ; ' ".hstella wants a husband who is not a farmer. In me she can find one of many trades and professions.?. I . left the plow and bade adieu to farming, in boy hood. Since then I have been lawyer, artist, shoemaker, peddler, printer, phre nologist, merchant and auctioneer; I have been employed in various other pursuits incident to wild adventure, not calculated to win Estella's hand. I am a bache- ior 01 iorty-six winters, istciia can nave me, seiocting irom my trades end professions which I shall follow for her support.- I have nearly starved at them all." . . . "There ha goes again," said Mrs. Par tington, in the legislature, as a member stood up for the fifth time to speak on the same question. "There he goes likeja so'da fountain, and just as fluid as water. Now, Isaac, mind him, and see if you can t be come a speaker of the house of reprehensi bles some, time. . I declare!" : continued she, as a new burst of eloquence reached her ear, "it does seem as if the mantle piece of Daniel Webster had fell onto him he is bright. -' ' '' - Missouri is larger than all New En eland. Illinois would make . forty, and Minnesota sixty such States as Rhode Is land. Ohio exceeds io extent either Ire land, Scotland or Portugal, and equals Belgium, Switzerland and Scotland to gether. Missouri is larger than Denmark, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland; and Missouri and Illinois are larger than En gland, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. ' B&-A Herald's Ottawa special says: The escape of Murphy, the Fenian Head Center, and his associates.from the Corn wall prison, is the great topio 'of conver sation throughout. Canada during 'the past week. It is believed that the cir cumstances will encourage Fenianismnot only in Canada but in the United States ' "I can't" never crossed the Alps, or raised in acre ot corn.
