MY CHILD'S ORIGIN. Miscellaneous Selections.
The Nashville Banner tells the story
of George Vestal, of Maury county,
Tennessee, a native of North Carolina,
and a Quaker, who refused on conscien
tious grounds to pay five hundred dol
lars exemption fee demanded of the
Friends by the rebel authorities, and
was consequently conscripted.. He was
taken to Tullaboma, where the obvious
sincerity of his anti-war principles se
cured for him the friendship of Gener
als Maury and Polk, and he was releas
ed.. He was again conscripted and
sent to the Tennessee brigade in the
armv of Virginia, and would suffer
martyrdom rather than bear arms.
, The officer, who was at that time
commanding the brigade of Tennessee-
ans, by reason of the capture of lien.
Archer,, at Gettysburg, was irascible
and arbitrary. He became very much
en razed at Vestal's, retusaL and order
ed the commandant of the fourteenth
Tennessee to apply the bayonet, saying
that he never yet saw tne man wnotn
cold steel could not move. The Colo
nel of that resriment acquiesced with
reluctance, but he knew that it was his
duty to obey. In a few days an in
spection was ordered, when it became
necessary to clean up quarters, arms,
&&, and a detail was ordered to clean
ud the regimental quarters, it Happen
ed to be Vestal's turn, and the sergeant
detailed him. He signified flatly hit.
purpose not to go. His captain entreat
ed him to comply. .Numerous mem
bers of the regiment offered to pay the
five hundred qollprs required by tbe
law, rather than see him suffer punish
ment He firmly declined,' assigning
the same reasons, and alleging that the
money would go into the treasury and
be used to carry on tne war.
Finally the guards were ordered to
fix bayonets, and a shovel was banded
him, with instructions ' to make him
work. When the guards first handed
him the shovel, he stated to them that
if cleaning op camp was a punishment
for not doing; military duty, he would
clean np the entire camp, but if it was
military duty, he would not The
guard entreated him, argued the case
with nim, begged mm to render tbe
application of the bayonet unnecessary,
He was inexorable, answering with a
smile, "that the physical comfort was
nothing compared with the hereafter,
and he was willing to die for tbe faith
that was in him." .
Three men with sharp Enfield bayo
nets then thrust them into the fleshy
part of his thighs and buttocks, inflict
ing in all thirty-five wounds, ranging
in depth from one-fourth to one inch.
Frequently he was knocked down with
the butts of the guns, but as long as he
had strength, he would turn one side
and the other for J,he guards until finally
they refused to inflict further punish
ment At this juncture, tbe brave men
who composed the old fourteenth
regiment, became loud in their con
demnation of this proceeding. The ex
citement waa intense, and tad the
Brigadier issued a second order of this
character, he wouia nave ueen unamo
to have had it executed.
Vestal was confined several weeks to
bed. After his recovery he was re
leased from the guard house, upon bis
promise not to escape. Most faithfully
did he comply, for not many months
afterward the command moved toward
the southern portion of Virginia, where
every opportunity wasonered tor escape,
but he was always, in camp at night
Shortly after his return from this ex
pedition, charges were preferred against
him, and he was tried and convicted of
insubordination by a court-martial con
vened at Orange Court House, and sen
tenced to imprisonment in Castle Thun
der, at Richmond, for the war, forfeit
ing, all pay-and allowance. .At the
evacuation of Richmond he was'etill in
prison, and secured his release only by
the downfall of the Confederacy.' , ;
General Grant and the Old
; During the year 1885 an bid soldier,
named Lemuel Owens, was discharged
from the arsenal in this city owing to
some very abrupt reply he gave to a
self-appointed Committee who were
sounding him upon his politics. . t- ;
As Owens had served' twenty-six
years in the regular army, and had
wound up his term of service on the
Peninsula, under McClellan, he would
allow no m;,n to question his right to
rote, and boasted too, that he had
served in the Fourth Infantry, under
Grant, when the renowned chieftain
was but a Lieutenant
He told the committee he would go
and see General Grant himself about
the matter. They jokingly replied :
"Do so old fellew; he'll make it all
right." General Grant was temporarily
living at Twentieth and Chesnut,
Streets,1 in this city, when the veteran
soldier trndged np with his story to th
General's house. He stepped up rang
bell,! and, went into the entry hall.
When the servant appeared, and saw an
old sunburned, poorly dressed man, he
very promptly aked: "What do you
want! ,.. .
"I ' want to see General Grant," was j
the calm reply. ' ' -
"The' General s engaged, and cannot
be seen. Have you got a card f . ..
Just at this moment a little girl ap
peared, and old Owens said to her,
Sis, run up stairs and tell your fop
'an old Fourth infantry man wants to ree
him." '- '' '
A message soon came down for the
old soldier to come in,' when he was
ushered into the ' presence of Gen.
Grant ' He shook him by the hand
and said, "General, don't you know me."
The General replied that he had seen
so many people of late that rt was hard
to remember them all.
Owens told- him when he served
under him, and that he had been dis
charged from his work, and that he had
lost his eldest son from disease in tbe
war, and his family had nothing to
depend upon but his labor. Grant
patiently listened to the old soldier's
story, and, picking up his peD, wrote a
few lines to the effect that Owens should
have work as long as he wanted it
The old man was not long in reach
ing his former field of labor, armed with
the formidable order, and when be pre
Bented it, with the signature of the Com
mander-in-Chief attached, it created
much surprise, and the Veteran soldier
was graciously acknowledged as entitled
thenceforth to a respectable considera
tion. Fuladelpkia JSuUehn.

The Chinese Embassy.
One of the most important events of
this rather eventful year is the arrival
from the Chinese Umpire of an fim
baesy .to treat with this Government
upon matters intimately affecting the
interests and relations of China and the
United States. It marks an era in the
progress toward civilization of China,
and marks also an epoch in the progress
of this Republic toward the nrst posi
tion in the'world. '
But a few years ago it was all an out
side .barbarian's life was., worth to at
tempt to scale the Chinese wall of pre
judice, 'and break through the celestial
barriers erected to keep out the unen
lightened Europeans and Americans.
To treat with them was next to impos
sible, and to trade with the Chinese
was attended with the greatest difficult
ICS. ' ; .- . i I . - .,
put now, not only have our commer
cial and diplomatic relations with the
Chinese Empire become of the most
intimate character, but what is stranger
still, one of our own countrymen has
become the chosen Ambassador of this
oldest government in the world, and
the channel of communication with his
own and with the leading European
governments. ' The most important
mission ever engage in by the oldest
nation is entrusted to a citizen of this
Government : The new Republic of the
West becomes the leader and instructor,
in the arts of diplomacy and peace, of
the nation which was old when America
was founded-
One of the highest honors ever paid
America was the selection of Mr. car-
lingame to represent ' and act for the

Real Estate in New
1 estate owners, who were unsat
isfied' with fair or even extraordinary
returns on their investments, but who,
in spite of the remonstrances of tenants,
raised their rents, are now, many of
them, reaping a just reward. ' For years
with a few local or temporary exceptions
real estate in this city has been paying,
to its owners a larger percentage than
any other equally safe investment, to
say nothing of the fact that it has been
constantly increasing in value at the
rate of from 10 to 25 per cent a year,
and yet, so long were landlords in the
habit of raising their rents on the first
of May, or whenever the leases expired,
(hat the custom has become chronic.
This year, however, hundreds of dealers,
both wholesale and retail, and thousands
of families, found, themselves with the
balance on the wrong side of the profit
and loss account, and felt that retrench
ment must commence somewhere. On
receiving the , customary notice "that
rents had advanced since last year;"
wholesale' dealers remonstrated; re
tailers said that they should be obliged
to return as journeymen to their trades;
and h,eads of families announced their
determination to remove to Brooklyn
or Piew jersey, or eveu w irv wuoir
fortunes in the country. Landlords
generally were inexorable; they had
heard such threats before, and threw
out hints of other tenants standing
ready to take possession of vacated
property. For once they were deceived.
Wholesale dealers went out of business
or removed to cheaper stores; retailers
left the palatial houses on the great
thoroughfares for' less pretentious ones
on smaller streets;, families went to
Brooklyn and Jersey by thousands,
and to day "To' Let" is posted on some
of the moit costly wholesale stores
down town, on more of. those occupied
bv small dealers,' and on hundreds of
dwellings,' from the richly-furnished

Singing School For Birds.
i There is such a school as this, and
very good scholars it makes. -They
cannot read or write, but they can
sing. - They sing a few simple notes,
like the small linnets you may hear in
the fields; but after they are taught
they will whistle regular tunes. ' "
Last summer I was at a ' friend's
house at Nahant I rose early in' tbe
morning, and went down stairs to walk
on the piazza. While there I heard, as I
thought, some person whistling a ' tune
in a very sweet style. I looked around,
but could see no one. Where could the
sound come from! I looked up and
saw a little bird in a cage. I he cage
was hung in the midst of flowers and
twining plants. 'Can it be" thought I,
"that such a little bird as that has been
taught to sing a regular tune so
sweetly f" I did not know ' what " to
make of it When my fnend came
down stairs s!ie told me ' that it was
indeed the little bird who had whistled
the sweet tune. Uhen my tnentl cnea
out to the bird, "Come, Bully, Bully,
sweet mtie cuunncn, give us just one
. ..... ,. , . 1
more tune." And then tbis dear nttie
bird hopped about the cage, looked at
its mistress, and whistled another sweet
tune. It was so strange to hear a
bird whistle a regular tune ! "Now
Bully," said my friend, "you must
give us 'Yankee Doodle.' Come,
come, yon shall have some nice fresh
seed if you will ' whstle 'Yonkee Doo
dle.' And the little thing did whistle
it much to my surprise. " ' " '
My fnend then told me that she bad
brought the bird from the little town
of Funda, in Germany, where there
are little schools for teaching these
birds to sing. ' When a bullfinch has
learned to sing two or three tunes he
is worth from forty ' to sixty doi'arsj
for he will bring that price in France
or England. Great skill and patience
are needed to teach these birds, tew
teachers can have the time to give to
the children nnder their charge so
much care as these bird teachers giv
to their bird pupils. - The " birds - arc
put into classes of about six each, and
kept for some time in a dark room.
Here, when their food is given them,
they are made to hear music, so that
when they have eaten their food or
when they want more food, they, will
sing, and try to imitate tha tune they
have just beard. v ibis tune tbey prob
ably connect with tbe act ot . feeding.
As soon as they begin to imitate a few
notes, the light is let into the room, and
this cheers them still more and makes
them feel as though they would like to
sing. In some of , these schools, . the
birds are not allowed eitber light or
food till they begin to sing. These are
tbe schools where the teachers are
most strict, 'After being thus taught
in classes, each bullfinch is put under
tha care of a bov.'who blavs bit or
gan from morning till night, while the
master or mistress of the bird school
s. . t
goes round to see low tbe pupils are
getting on. The bullfinches seem to
know at onue when they are scolded,
and when they are praised by their
master or mistress: and they like to be
petted when they have done welt
The training goes on for nine months;
and then the birds have got their edu
cation, and are ent-to fine land or

At Cincinnati, a few years since, an
unsophisticated darky waited upon
military gentleman with a bill of 19.13
for washing done at the camp hospital,
which, alter undergoing a rigorous
scrutiny by the officer, was returned to
him with the following explanation,
which the astonished son of Ethiopia
listened to with an equal amount f
wonder and perplexity. : ' - '
"This bill," Baid the military gentle
man, "will first have to be sent to the
Quartermaster General at Washington:
and he will report to., the Adjutant
Utneral, and be will lay it before tbe
Secretary of War for his approval.
The Adjutant being sa tided, it will be
sent to the Auditor of State, who will
approve of it and send it to the Secreta
ry of tbe treasury, who will send t to
the United States Treasurer, who will
at once dispatch an order to the Col
lector of this port to pay the bill."
Xbe darkey reieived bimself of a
long drawn sigh. "Then, massa," he
remarked, "dat last gemblam you spoke
to, pays for de washing, does he !"
"No," continued the other, "he will
hand it to the Quartermaster; but as
there are is no such officer here at presr
ent, some proper person must be appoin
ted by the Secretary of War, under
direction of the President, and his
appointment must' be approved by the
Senate. Congress not being in'sessioa
now, the commission cannot be issued
until after it meets. , When this com
mission is received, the Quartermaster
will show it to the Collector; he will
pay it, you giving your receipt . ...

his head, and finally said : .., -
"I guess 1 11 hsb k let dis washing

on a wagon, would cost at least $12 for

Allowing an average of 40 bushels per
acre, the crop would be worth 9 more
per, acre, or 8 per cent on $ 1 00. As
the relative advantage is about the same
for other crops, it is clear that a railroad
passing through a town would add 1110
per acre to the value of farms.. .A town

An increase of $100 per acre is equal
to 96,400,000, or enough to build 20O

per mile. . But SOU miles of road would
extend throagh twenty towns ten miles
