The English Press on Lincoln's Second
Term of Office.
Tnt RCoGNIrTON QrstoN I~ A Nw LIGnT.
The London &andard has an editorial on. the
secor4 inauguration- of 'Lincoln. It says: Mr.
Lincoln, in- 1861, could claim, with some show
of reason, to be the President of' the whole
thirty-four states ; for, though fifteen of them
had unanimously and pereuipto!ily rejected hiln,
they had taken part in the election which~ led
to his triumph. Mr. ;Lincoln, 1865, is manifestly
the President on1Y of the North. Not only hive
the eleven Confederate States taken rio part
whaeier in the eleetion, but they have been ex
eluded from it by formal and'express legislation
The pseudo government of Lonisiar., and
T-nnessee chose delegates to cast the vote of
th-se States; and that vote has been rejected by
the Congress at Washlington. It is formally
declared that the eleven States which form the
Confederacy are out of the Ur ' The pozi
tion of the Federal Go0ernent th-as material
lV changed.
* To treat Mr. tineoIn as Pireidont over
the Southern States, in virt,.e of the receti
election, is to commit ourselyes to a *hole
ti-sue of ubsurd ties ; if those States are portions
of the- Union, he has not been elected at ali i for
that can be no election from which one-third of
the con'stitent bod- is e\cluded. If they are
portions of the Union, Congress could have no
F-ght to exclude or disppnse with their votee.
Is they no longer belong to the Union, then Mr:
Liinoln ias no authoriEy over them, and his
present enterprise is an attempt to conquer an
hide'pnd,.. nat.o , not to subdue rebels. In a
word, ither the election is valid, in which case
the 'eeven Confeder-'te States are not menmbers
of the Union, or it is invalid, and the Union has
no goyernincat iabatever. If Mr. Lineo!n be
lawiu& P'esidentof the Union, the seces-ion of
the Soutir is a legal fact, and Mr. Davis is lgally
President of the Co;federatf Statel. If we re
cognze thie present Governiont, of the United
States'at all, we dLy by implication, recognize
the ildependence o- the South. We have, of
course, io p Lhat any suoh argument will
i!;fluence the policy. of the Adiunitratidu.

\iennes is'the multitude of grecetings which
they use in salutatioins,' whether on the prom
en.ade, iti the social circle, 'or in daily inter
course. "I wish that you have had a Zood
dinner, is by far the most u9nal salptation
a'ter dinner, instead of "good afternoon." If
they n,vet you bere dinner, aft hour or two,
thie Slutation is usually, "I wish you may
have a good dinner." This is-everi common
among buisness men. We h:ge seen gentlemen
enter a counting-house full of clerks, silent
and bwsy at their desks, , and excite themr all
by %isDing they may have a good dinner, in.
stead ofsimply saying, "god morning." In
the 4)etter circles it is- not at aIN unc!omnion
for the dinner party, the repast being ended,
to rise, shake hands all rouni ,and expreis the
wish to each other that no ill cifects may b.
experigeed from the dirfner. The parting
sautation at night is infinitely more expres.
sive thain opr "good niightr." The Germans sav.
"yyou sl1eep well, "A pleasant repose,'
"Pleasant dreams." Their "good bye" is al
watys a stron;~ farewell: "Leben sie whoiu

The Secret of Military Success.
History proves the truth of the Bible, that
the battle is not always to the strong. From
the earliest records of listory to the present
day, the smaller number .has won at least
three battles out of fire. Sudcess, in, war, de
p'ends on efficient organiza.tion, steady discip
line, courage and enddrance. 'Few men have
ever possessed the capacity to esta'blish those
things in a large army.
The Roman Legiqn numbered 8,000 men
--a Consular .armDf about .000, With this
force they conquered the world. A French
corps d'a,mee composes 20,000 men. Napoleori
was in the habit of saying he could not find a.
marshal who could handle trat number. The
Athenian'_, with 10,000 men, defeated the
Persians at Marathon, with 300,000 men, and
with less than three times that numbe: won the.
battles of Plates and Salamis, and drove five
millions of invAder:from their soil. With 500
men, the Swisg at. orgarteen, defeated 20,000
A ustrians. , With an .equally disproportionate
force they fought sixty pitched battles and
maintained their independence.
Bruce defeated Edward of England with his
trained army of' 100,000, at Bannockburn,
with 30,000 half-armed Highlanders.
The Prince of Orange, at the head of seve
ral small provinces of Holland, not one of them
larger than a Virginia county,. maintained
their independence against the mnost powerful
monarch - in Europe, and efeated armies
three times as numerous as Fis. own. and com
manded by John, of Austra, and Aleiander
Farnese, the greatest military leaders of the
Levden withstocd the whole power of Spain,
at that time the most warlike nation in Eu
rope. Maximilian. of Germany, Louis the
X ,f T0FranCe, and Pope Julius If. f6rmed
the infamous league of Canbray, for the de
struction of Venice. With heroic resolve she
entered the field. Superior forte might have
overpowered her, but God is ever on the side
of the right. Discord and dissension broke out
amon- her enenies. Their armies were de
feated,and Venice was preserved.
It will ever be so. The success of s gallant
struggle on the side of righ tai djustice againmst
wrong and oppression, is inevitable. A viitu
ous and ,rave people in a good cause have
never failed. If we are right and do not falter
wt must succeed.
Grart opened his grand campaign with
250,00 men. Has Richmond fallen ? Has
Petersburg ? The fact is, these hilf million
armies are simply humbugs, and are 4most
always the victims, if not of cannon, of pesti
ler.ce, famine and mutiny. Brave. men, well
organized, well equipped, are the sirews, tho
life, the soul of an a-my. Money cannot buv
t11. They fight, when they fight at rll
. principle. Week as we may appear, and
strong as the enemy may'seem, in the hour
of peril we shall have the strength of David,
our enemies the weakness of Gollah.
FooD .for WAK SToMnAC.s.-Tn the Me
moiriet Count Segur, vol. I, page 16, there
is the following anecdnte: My mother (the
Countess vle Segur) being asked. by Voltaire
1 respecting her healtlr, told him that the most
painful'feelintg she had arose from the decay
of het stomach, and the ditticulty of finding~
any kind of aliment thaut it could. bear. Vol
taire, by way of ponsolaition, assured her thA
he was once for niearlyv a y'ear in the same
state, and believed to be i:zurable, but that,
nev*erthC,ess, a very simple remedy had re
stored h im. It consisted in taking no other
nourishment than yo'lks of egg, beaten up
with th. flour of potatoes and water. -Though
this, circumnstance took place as far back as
fifty years ago, and respected so extraordinary
a persogge as Voltaire, it is astonishing howt
little it fs known, and how rarely the remedy
Ihas been psactised- Its efficac-y, however, in
case of debilitf, cannot be questioned. and the
Ifollowing is the mode of prepar-ing th'is valna
ble articia of food., as reconunended by Sir
John Siniclai,: Receipt-Beat uo.an egg in
a bowl, and then add sixz tablespoon-fuls of
cold water, mixing the wholo ,well together;
then add two table-spoonfuls of the farina of
potatoes, to be n.ixed thoroughly witb the
liquor in the bow]. Th:n pour ,in as. much
boiling water as will zonvert the whole into
jelly, and mix it well. It may be taken either
alone, or with the ad'dition of a little milk and
roist or best sugar. not, *only for breakfast,
but in eases of great stomnachc debility, or in
consump tive disorders, at the other meals. The
dish is eght, easily.digested, extremely whole
some ar,d nonrishing. Bread or biscuit my
be taken with it as the stomach gets stronger.

thirteen years of age, cbews. I am wrong.
They do not chew, but put the tobacco in
tl*r mouths, keep it there constantly, except,
w en eating, and instead of chewing, roll it
about with their tongue and suck it. Only
imnagine yourself about to salute the rich red
lips of a magnificent little Hebe, arrayed in
satin and flushing with diamonds; she puts
you back with one delicate hand, while with
the fair taper fingers of the other she draws
forth fro n her mouth a brownish black roll of
tobacco,.quite two inches long looking like a
monster grub, and depQsiting the savory mpr
sal onthe-rim of your sombrero, puts qp her
face, and is ready for your salute. I hiii
sometimes seen an over-delicate foreigner turn
with a shudder of loathing urgder such circum
stance, and get the cpithet.el spo (the sav

this sensitiEe squeamishness. Hpwever ond

In Missouri, the citizens of which have suf.
fered -more terribly from fiendish barbarity
than any other in the Confederacy, more than
usual quiet prevails. The Yankee troops haTs
gune, and the sad sufferers are allowed a little:
respite, the hours of which will be made the
more bitter by the unavoidable contemplation
uf their desolation and misery. Spots once:
occupied by flourishing villages are now a
blackened waste and as silent as the grave. 1a
numerous instancesthe yankees not only -burn
ed homesteads, but.shot toe inmates, both male
and female, and made their home their funeral
pyre. One instance is recorded in which A
father was shot and scalped, the mother and
li,te son shot down, ansd al, with a sick
daughter, who was unable to move were burn
ed up in their dwelling. The Yankee officers
made sport for themselves by walking through
a t:wn at night. and %.hen they saw a family
grathered rouid the fireside would fire their
pictols through the' window in the, group.
Such has been the cbaracter of the Federal
troops who have held sway in Missouri.
A RE[ARKABLE WOMAN.-We wish it dis

iouch for the"Veracity of the following remark
able incident. An exchange paper gives this:
account -of an eccentric lady still at large. in
the city in which the incident is said to bave
occurred :
"A lady entred one of the cars yesterday,
and foundvery scat taken. A gentleman iose
and invited her to accept the seat he had va
cated. She did so, politely thanking him for;
his kindness. The lady wore a dark delain
dres., plain shawl, and an ordinary tan color
ed straw hat. She had a fair complexion,
smi'ing countenance, keen black'eyes, and an.
expression .that indicated a good degree of
intelligence. Her appearance was neat and tidy',
hpr face was free from dirt and paint, iei- hair
was smoothly conibed, without .curls or friz
zles, or beau catchers. There was nothing in'
the appearance or deportment of this individ.
.ual that would attract special attention, or
lead any one to suspect that.sbe was 'hot in
sound mind, save the fact that she bowed po
lit ely find thanked the gentleman ,who gave
her his seat. This eccentricity is sufficient to
show that the lady is not in sound mind, and'
she ought not. to be at large."
