Yankee Inquisitiveness. BY now.vnn IWUT.. Hill! poor Yankee Hill! He was the very incarnation of drollery and esprit. We Wed to see his smiling, gool-natured phiz before the lights, for it was sure te impregnate the very atmosphere with a sen»c of merriment. lie possessed a ge. nius for the impersonation of down cast character, which no actor ever before nor since his time has approached. Ho was natura', captivating, easy and brilliant. With what genial unction he related a pleasantry! with how much sparkling zest he bantered tho follies of msnkinj ! tho witticisms flashed from his lips as flakes of light along the orient. A gay, glorious fellow was lie, in every sense of tho .expression. His store of anecdotes seemed to be inexhaustible ; and he was one of those few gifted creatures who conld talk all day, and still havo something left w -II worth listening to. One never wearied of hearing him. Age did not tarnish, " ? nor custom stale, His iutinito variety." His whimsical stories yet range the length ami breadth of the United States, as unowned oddities. Tltev have beon passed froir. one to another, till the label of identity has fallen from then in the vortex of narration. Wo recognize them here a-ud there, as one will find polished pebbles on the sea beach. AVhatagrot esqne medley his portfolio would present! Spir.t of >lonius !we in.oke thee to as sist by thy potest influence, the finding of ilh is rare legacy ! I Wo remember a scrap of adventate that Hill used to -relate, illustrative ot the trait of inquisitiveuess, so noticeable a,Riong the primitive home ?pun Yankees. It appears that '.he eomeditin was travel ing in a stage coach, and sat next to a gawky, slab sided Vermonter, who open ed the conversation with the usual plati tudes touching "weather, crops, and gin- I eral matters of intrigt." " You're traveling, J .gness, MisteT?" said Vermont. " If being in a stage coach behind four fl<;ct roans is aoy evidence of it, I should think I.was," coolly replied Hill. " Ya-as—you're Eh ?" A brief pa\iße » " Travelin fqr your beelth ?" " Not exactly," responded llill. " Oh, then, on biiness, I reckon, eh ?" '* Yes—no; that is to say not precise ly." "Eeh ! I pereclv.e—half biiness and half pleasure"—rolling his large eyes ' about like bewildered bagatelle balls. BUTLER, BUTLER COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1867. " Something in that way." And not oaring to be delagfcd with interrogatives, aj lie could sec the "breed" of his friend, the comedian took from his pocket a copy of "Humphrey Clink er," and soon his mind was psycologically with that notable personage." Umph !" grunted Vermont: "I beg your pardon, Mister, but i3 it fort Hill affected not to hear bin) He re peated the question. " Don't know," replied lie, without taks ing his eyes from the book. " Well, shou d yeou think it WUZCOUN siderin' what we've come 1" " Can't say." * Another "slight" silence. " Like this part of the country ?" " Yea"—in a gruff tone. " So do I"—edging still closer to II ill. ■ A moment's intermission. J .. '^^ r . " Yeou don't live abeout here, prev haps ?" " No." " Nuther dew I. '' Umph 1" " That's a strange coincidence." Vermott here adjusted his cravat—a flowerod velvet of a strong gamboge tint the bow of which, terminating into a resemblance of a tipsy letter X, had im perceptibly jogged round and got under his oar. Bringing ihc bow back to its original position uudcr his chin, he re marked : " Kxcuse me, Mister, do you ever ex pect tew conic this way agin ?" " Have no positive knowledge," lafton. ically replied Ilill. " I spose you dou'tlike coach ridin' ?" I " No." •' Not half so nice as st».iwboat or cars is it ?" •' Quite agrcowitk you." Here he cased off for a moment or two, and then renewed the attack. Nudging his victim, he said : " I'BC an American, I am." " Shouldn't have taken you for an In. dian or S; aniard," drily remarked the -comedian. "No ? I'uo #l»d to hear you say so. I've been told afore now that I had a real. Russian mouth, and thai my nose was on the Greek style, but I reckon they ain't if the truth was told." What possible affinity thtre could ex> ist between his mouth and Russia, unless it was iU extent, w iu'd be hard to con-| jecture. If Greek noses are of that I long sort that hasten down to a red point, then his nose was Grecian in the ex treme. If not, we will avoid a rash clas sification of the organ, which at a glance happily reminded one of a piatina shell, | with which lightning rods arc dipped to | guard against meteorlogieal disasters. Hill saw it was BO use to thwart the fellow, for talk he wouldj ''come what, | come may." Tho words bubbled thro' his lips as wiil-o'-the wisps swell to the j surface of a nftrsh. The comedian laid ■down his book, and the Ya,nfcee's ey<s sparkled in anticipation of a long, gos» sipy. old-fashioned chat. " You're an American., I spose ?" ho asked. " Yes." " Du yew know, I thought you wuz " '■•lndeed I" " Great country this, eh ?" aficr a mu a ent's hesitation. " Extraordinary country." " Good kind of land to be born iu.*' " True."' " Our mountains tower up as if they knew what they were about, eh ?" " Unquestionably." " Our rivers ain't no puddles, nuther." " Quite right." " And I guess our lakes would make folks look if they were hard pushed." " Tobe sure." " I'm glad you agree with me on theui ! pints, I am"—then relapsing for a mo* nicnt into a blank -silence, lie started up again with— " What teown were you born in, if it's not an extravagant question ?" " Boston." " Crinkj', how odd ! —l've often been there. " " Ah indeed!" Pause of at least seoonda. " Dew yeou know—now don't say it's curosity—but since'we have got tew talk in', Migter, .dew yeou know I should like tew know yegur name t" "Would you?" said the comedian, laughing. "It runs in my head I've seen you somewhere." " Very possible." " And yeour name is—" " Hill." Oh, indeed ! I know a good many Hills living in Vermont; our head thresh er'* name is Hill, I swow ' How odd I There's a goodish spriuklia' of Hills all over Vermont." The comedian fancied for an instant, but only for an instant, that his name had "given rise" to a pun, but a gSlnce at the hard features of hi'Wriend convinced him that the play on the word was gross ly unintentional. " Well, how very strange I should know so very nnny of yeour name ! I shouldn't woDder if I knew people with yeour full name. What might yeour Christian—" Hill saw what was coming, and replied : " George." ' Ie that a fact? Oh, you're certainly joking. Why, my name's George, too Wheeler —George Wheeler's my name." « Oh!" " Yes. Now yeou were born—" " In Boston^-" '• Y-as, 'zactly so. Boston, Massachu setts, of eourse." "Certainly. Boston, Massachusetts— New Kngland—North America," said Ilill. who, bcred to death by this time with inquiries, placidly settled down in the corner of the coach and shut his eyes. Vermont was uot to be thrown aside so easily, however ; a»d contracting his sharp features every angle of which seemed to ask a question—he stretched his neck, and said : " S'kuse mo, but in what part of Bos ton wcro yeou born ?" Hill's patience evaporated r.t that iii»> mfcnt, and determining to tie up in a packet every possible interrogatory, re plied i '• Near the Centre, «!o3e by tho " Old South," about four o'clock in the morn ing, in the of winter, in Milk street." Jlill thought lie Isud left the follow no margin now, ami judge his surprise when he leaned over and said : '• If it's not troublin' ycou iojy much,' what side of Milk street waz ye on born on, and what wnz the ni ruber ?" The comedian avows that alter that "last stroke" he cot out of the coach, and pursued the balance of the journey on the box with th" 1 driver. Responsibility of Young Men. As every sand has its place : n making the mountains and every drop its own p ace iu wakuig the ocean, and every leaf its part in clothing the forest, and i-very stalk of wheat its place in filling the field with golden harvest that is to be gathered into the barn—as every par ticle of *paec btlwccn our planet and the sun is an important link binding us to the solar centre, and to perform an im» portant function in the communications oariiedon between us and the other members of the solar system, so is every mm, and the particles of the influence of every man, a link in the vast chain of human well doing and well being. Soc*' cty is the aggregation of individualities- It is, in fact, an aisociation organized by the Creator for purposes of benevolence. Every human being is a shareholder in this association—not merely to receive the dividends, or as a sleeping partner consume its fruits ; but to help to pro duce, them. Every human being is bound up with every other human beine, and roust fiill his page in the vasrf volumn of humanity. This is true of all agos and of nil men; hut especially true of young men in ojir f\ay. liy Providence they arc so placed as to receive and transmit impressions ju;t as we their predecessors ! have done, and their successors will do. Nay, their opportunit'es for exerting a wide influence arc, in most cases, gveater than were enjoyed by their fathers.— Whatever then may be the character of the young men of our age, whether good or bad such will they impart to the com ing age. VVhen we ate ictnoved from living men, and the sauds of the moun tain, or the clods of the valley, or the tangled weeds ot ths sea, or ocean's bril liant shells may be our tomb, thsn they will occupy our places on the world's busy stage. Yes, when wo who arc now busy in the strife of life, and struggling with its burdens, have left these mcrtal shores, these young men will bo the liv ing inhabitants of the earth. Those whom you aro now teaching will teach others and mould their character. These young men of business, of science, of learning, ami of religion in the years to come. As the fulling leaves of autumn arc replaced by the growth of next year or rather fs the leaves on evergreen trees are ever falling and ever growing and the tree alwpys green; so in this vaet aud ever multiplying population of our earth, we aic born, livo and pass away, and an other generation coroeth The infant In the cradle will soon mingle in the sport ! ot boyhood and the growing child wiH | soon pass into manhood, and with bis fel | lows staisp the living world with its per manent characters. ■**—•—«*- —— J —A Conscript, being told that it was | sw.eet to die for one's country, excused I himself ou the ground that be did pot I like sweet thiols.

POST OFFIS, CONFEDIUT X UOADS, ~\ ( With is in the Suit uv Kentucky) ' December 31st, 180(J. ) l'or two weeks past I hev bin Karolina, and hev bed an opportunity uv being nv service to my friends & ihe good cause. I wuz there collecting funds fur the new college at this pint, to which I am devoted heart and sole, & wuz a inak'm my home at Kernel Absluui Podgcrs, who resides just back of H iwly, fi whoz table and cellar, permit me to say, are unsurpassed in the South. Keruel I'od gers is a gentleman uv the old skool, who lives in luxurious elegance onto a plan tasliuu uv 1500 alters and who hez troo piety into him and alius wears a shirt frill. Afore the war l;e owned 200 nig gers, and his sole runijin out after cm, he hez managed, senco the war, to collect the most uv em and get cm together on the old place. He hez bin busily en gaged iu subdooin uv em and biinging em back t'i thcr normal condishun, but alas ! ther wuz difficulties iu the way.— Tho men niggers, with au ob?tinancy wl'ich'l can't account for, refused to work for $4 per month, and the winien h.ivin been mostly married to their-husbands by the chaplin uv a regiment wioh wuzsta shened here doorin the war, refused to resoom their old relashuns, and things looked serious. Most men would havo vieldcd to circumstances and give up, but Kernel I'odgers wuz not uv that stripe. He owed a dooty to those misguided beins wieh he ftlt ho must fulfill; aiid besides he is desirous of buildin a uew house next summer and sendin two daughters (by his wife) to as;minary next season, and he felt that he must bring them to their senses. Ho sed that he stood in the rcli'.tion uv a father figuratively speakin to all uv em, and wuz lie agoiu to let em goon a flyiu out uv their nor mal spear ? Not any. The first day I wu '. U'.cre, ? Arisis.iOC currcd. .lolin i'odgers, his futu., iusisted upon takin away the wife uv a mulatto, and tho nigger, fcigetlin his posisheu, wuz impudent. John struck him, and '<e degraded wretch wadel iu & whaled h'm unmerciful. This, uv course-, could not be endoorcd. The Po lgers' blood riz'and tho nigger wuz seized and cattlcd till ho died. Kf I remember right, ho expired while undergoin discipline. It may be he lived till tnornin, but it mat | tcrs not, eep.tiu that I like io be very ac- I cerate. It wuz a solem and impressive scene. Tlie Kernel hod the Kthopiap's wife pres ent doorin the infliction uv tho punish ment, and to show her that ho did not percccd without authority, beforo com mcnciu he read to her frgni Scripter tlie chapters treatin uy Haul .and Ifager, and the passage comuiencin "servanco obey yoor masters," and then walloppcd him moro viggcr than I spossce wuz left in a man so old. He pintcd to the nigger on the ground, after he wuz cut slown, and tellin ber that lie hoped it wood be ales son to her, bade her goto licr quarters. But the perverse creeclver didn't. She ran away and complained to t'ic officer at the necrest post, who justed uv sendin her back under guard, with his cvvvp'i ments to Kernel i'odgerSj actilly forward ed her complaint to G«,o. .Sickles, who forthwith struck a blow at the founda tions uv the fabric uv Southern society, and ordered the arrest uv the Keruel who win: to-wunst placed in doorance vile. There w«T7, cggscitcment in the visin itv. I never saw sich a fermeutashen. Men run to and ftp with blancht cheeks, and askt "Wat next ? Is our rites to be taken from us ? Is Johnson a holler mockery? ' Aud then made up a purse and begged me togo to Andceo and stand between cm aud destruckshen. I run up to Washington and hed an interview with his Kggsleocy, the President. lie knowed Kernel I'odgers—in bis younger days he had made his coats, —and a I touched upon ijie old tnau, immured in a diaaial dungeot, he wept. But A John son licz decision uv character. Wipin his eyes ho isliood a order for the revoka- Shun uv Sicklescs absurd 01 dor that nig gers ehoodent be whipt, and a spheshl order commandin the offiser who hed the Kernel in custody, to turn him over to the Civil Courts to be tried in accord ance w : tu the laws of Norf Karliny. Aruiod wit# these documents, I flew back, and the nitc I arrived I had the .satisf*cti<w uv taking the Kurncl out uv Jail, and takin him afore a Justis uv the I'eace, where ho gave bail to appear afore tte Conimm I'leas to answer a charge uv manslaughter, preferred by tho wilder of the drad nijrger. A day or two after the case wuz herd, I appearir. for the Kernel. I heid that the case be dismissed for the following reasons. 1. The charge uv manslaughter lrnr, absurd, for the reason that in the minds uv the Southern people there hez alluz bin the gravest doubts ez to wether the nigger is actilly a man.l held that the length uv his lice), the thickness uv his skull, the length uv his arm, all showed that lie wuz » distink species. Kf this is tho case, ez a matter of course the Kernel goes free. 2. The Kernel can't be held, allowin the nigger to be a man. The laws uv tho State uv Norf Karliny permit the wbippin up niggers but they don't pre scribe tho quantity uv whippin which may be iuflicted. It's a matter which is left entirely to the discretion uv the whippor. It's a matter with wich the whipper has noihing to do ; neither he/, the State. Kf tho Kernel had shot the nigger he wood be liable, for shootin ain't permitted ; but ez whippin is, and cz the quantity ain't prescribed, uv course it intends the matter to be left solely to the diaereshun «v tho pa'ty who hez the power to whip. Nothin kin be clearer than that. Sliel Kernel Podgers be pun ished becoz a nigger hedn't powers uv endoorence? Forbid it hevin. Here I rested the case. I showed to tho satisfackshen uv the court that the law wu* not only just but humane, and that any sich absurdity cz punishing the Kernel for carrying out its provisions wood be strikin a blow at the fntne work uv society. The Court conciooded with me, and to wutist discharged the Kernel, amid the acclatnashuns uv thejjerowd. The event wuz sellebrated that afternoon by whippin every nigger within a cirklc ol' ten miles. The escrcjses did our people good. It wuz soothin. In the meantime John Podgers hed gone afore a Justice uv the Peace and made complaint uv Susan (that is the name uv tliC r cmalc wich wuz the cause uv the diflikulty,) €Z a vagrant, and she wuz so declared by the Justis and put up and sold. Under the circumstances no one wood bid agin John, sad she wuz stiuck off to him at SSO, wich the tis under the pecoolyer circumstances uv the case rcfooscd to take. I saw John a marchin uv her home and felt happy. The Kernel's gratitood was boundlis. " Wat kin I do for you," said ho ring ing my hand in a fever uv joy. " Nothin !" pod I, " nothiu. Virchoo is its own reward, liut our College is languishin for wa.jt uv means— let yoor gratitude take that shape." He subscribed, and paid 8200, which constitoots him a pcrpotooal Honorary Professcr, and 8100 to make his wife a pcrpotooal honorary Perfesscr. 1 bor rowed 850 to take mc home, ez I coodent uv coorse yoose College funds, anj de parted 8350 bettor. I left regretfully. Now that this portion uv the South is gettin her rites, it is trooly a deliteful place too live, and I should like to end my days here. Hut my postoffis, and that College!

Not many weeks af terward, one of his friends met him reel* ing homo from the court ground with a considerable brick in his hat. •' llcllo, Uncle Billy," said his friend, " I tho't you had joined the Churoh 112" " So I did," answered Willy, making a desperate effort to stand still; "so I did, Jeems, and would a bin a good Baptist, it they badn't treated me so evtrlastin' mean at the water.

For several months the citizens of Hoston and of Cambridge adjoining,have been agitated with the question as to tho propriety of whipping girls and young ladies in school. A teacher iu one of tho public schools of Boston was soma time since brought before tho courts ori the chargo < 112 administering a cruel and humiliating chastisement to a younggirl, buthe was sustained by the authorities. A similar case occurred at Cambridge; the scat of Harvard University, where a ynung lady sixteen years of age was se verely flogged. The late election of school commissioners at the latter place turned altogether on this point, and the' anti-whippiiig-the girls candidates wero elected by a very small majofity. Ths discussion of the question is still kept up in Anthens and tho surrounding parts, and is carried on with no little warmth pruuml run. Dr. Morrill Wyman, of Cambridge, who has been one of the most active in denouncing tho case of girf whipping in that city, has published k pamphlet setting forth the moral aid physical reasons why corporal punish, ment should not be inflicted upon girls, lie says : "Why should not girls bo treated as boys? Because girls are not boys Ev ery parent having children of both sex es knows that they have moral charac teristics that at once distinguish them before they arrive at [the Fchool age.— They are weaker in body and more sen* sitive in feeling, and are more occupied with tjie impression they make upon others long before they know its value.
