Some time ago, a very long, brown Down Easter, attired in one of those costumes which are no where lobe met with except on the stage, a tall bell-crowned white hat, short-waisted blue coat, with enormous pewter buttons, a vest as "valler" as a bar- berrv biossom. and a pair of corduroys. whose highest ambitiou seemed to bo main- 20 j tain their ascendency over a pair of cnonn- a.- ous cownioes, mat nau trodden many htimi red miles of lousing paths, "tniuht have' ! been seen.' jack-knife and shingle in hand, j winding his way up long wharf, in the reali- zation of his life long anticipation of "seeing Hosting." At the corner of Merchants' Row his progress was arrested by the lumbering transit of a two-story house on wheels, drawn by half a dozen yoke of oxen, with the people inside pursuing their usual avo- j cations. 'What on airth is that 'ere?' he asked of a bystander. 'Oh, nothing,' replied the towney. 'the i ioiks are only moving.tuat's all. u lien we move d-wn nere, wo move house and all.' 'Je-rusalem!

In Dr. Brown's racy and valu able book on "Health," ho thus refers to the "sin" of dancing: j "Dancing is just the music of tho feet, the j glad ness of the young legs, and is well call- I ed tbo poetry of motion. I remember a ato- ry of a good old Antiburgher minister. It j was in the days when dancing was held to bo a great sin, and to be dealt with by the session. Jessie, a comely, and good, and blithe young woman, a great favorite of the minister's, had been guilty of dancing at a friends wedding. She was summoned be- seS3ion to be dealt with tho qjj fuuow8 sternly concentrating their eyes u ne a3 gi10 stoo,i trembling in her striped short gown, and her pretty bare feet. The doctor, who wis uno ot divinity, and a j thinker, greatly pitying her and myself said Jessie, my woman, wer9 ye dancing?' Yes, sobbed Jessie.' Yo maun e'en promiso never to dance again, Jessie.' I wull sir; I wull promise," with a cour tesy. . Now, what were ye thinking 6', Jessie, when ye were dancing?' 'Tell us truly,' said an old elder, who had been a preacher in youth. .'Xae ill," sobbed out the dear little wo man. 'Then, Jessie, my woman, aye dance, cried the delighted doctor. 'And so say I, to the extent that so long as our young girls think nae ill,' they may dance their own and their feet's fills; and so on with all the round of tho sunshine and lowers God had thrown upon and along the path cf his children.' From the Ohio Statesman. American Democracy Constructive and Conservative Not Revolutionary or Destructive. The only organised constructive and con serative political body in this country is the Democracy or Democratic party. Itsesscn- tial elements and its past history prove it to be such. T v , . ! In .huropo an monarchies and aristocracies. ' Damocracy is revolutionary destructive; j because it seeks to tear down or destroy ex. j isting systems of government. It was rev- nli,Hnn".r .,i j. ,; : ... , olutionary and destructive ,n this country , woen it sought the overthrow of the British rul e in the then Anglo-American colonies. ! Tiiit.lmvir.tr ncrnmn);ciio,i ,of i ; . :! . rw . , . '., J " .uuuou a ssmraeni or ramer a system of governments united in ono, in which tho essential the vital element is iue principle oi seu-goverment, which is the life blood of Democracy, and from which the term itself takes its origin. Natural enough the Democracy looked upon its own work in the construction of a n r -i- r ir . .1 . new system with a jealous eye and guarded I it with vigilant care. It secured, after sey- I eral years' experience in the work of con - i Btruction, as far as practicable, the public 1 ,r - , . , welfare and the blessings of liberty, provi- I ding for future change and improvemjnt ; without revolution or destructioi of the system useu. i uus uemocracy in itself. Thus Democracy ;n tll 5J country became and is both conservative and progressive. Soon after the Dew system to which our Revolution gave birth, went into full oper ation, the Democracy assuming the position of a political party, became tho conservator i and guardian of that system. It maintain- ; ed that in order to nreserv h infflrrriiv nf tial to the safety of the parts. Hence arose the primal Democratic idea of separate States with their own Constitution and laws yet united, not consolidated, in one National Union, supreme over all within certain de- j fined limits. j This primal Democratic idea, conformed our political system of government to tho I solar system tho States, like the planets,! moving round a central power, each attrac ted and yet repelled, and each iu its appro priate aou separate spnere; while tho cen tral power, never deviating from its peculiar and assigned position, diffuses its iuvigora- t'Dg, protecting and benficent influence im- . r-. n.iij tiiiuujiiuui, ana io every part ot ; the complex system, for which purpose , alone itwas created and is sustained. I All this is embodied and concentrated in ! tho expression "Tho Union." It is em j phatically and essentially a Democratic ex pression, as the idea to which it owes its or ! igin is Democratic. It is this, and uot any ' tendency, as has been falsely supposed, to a j revolutionary leveliug system, that Las ! made DemTocracy popular in this country, j and given the Democratic party ascendency and power. That pirty has been, by the ! acknowledgments.and tauts of its political I opponents, the conservator, the gutrdian j and the savior of the Union from the days of Thomas Jefff.rso?-, to theso of Abra- ! HAM LlXCOkX. j j Such is the posiiition of the Democratic , party to-day. The opposition to it is based upon the ground tbat it seeks to maintain ! the Union with the integrity of tho whole ; and of each component part, unimpaired by , any unconstitutional and revolutionary change. It is the only conservative Uuion ; party, and around it and within it are rally - ing all who are not bent on revolution and destruction, or led astray by those who are- Definitions bt an Olp Maid.

This black republican made a speech on the evening of June 12, before a company of his class at Cooper Institute, New York, Wm. Bryant in the Chair.

The papers have magni fied his recent exploit, brilliaet as it un doubtedly was, to most magnificent propor tions. The Memphis Argus says he was born in LewisCounty, Virginia, in 1825; en tered West Point in 1842, and graduated in the same clays with McClellan in 1816. He is therefore only thirty-seven years of age. Jackson was in Mexican War com mencing as Second Lieutenant. At Ver Cruz he was promoted to be First Lieuten ant for good conduct at Cerro Gordo brevet tod a Cuptain, and afterward honored with the brevet of Major. Tho Richmond cor respondent of the same paper says : There is a rumor I know not how true it is that Ji.ckson will bo promoted to the full rank of "Gsneral" the highest station known in our army. Tho people say this measure will be resorted to by tho Admin istration because he cati not be held in witb 15,000 men. and it will be absolutely nec essary to give him lOu.000 to prevent his irregular and erratic movements, which ar too Napoleonic to suit the President. The Richmond Whig of the 28th ultimo, under the head of "Stop Him," says; "Stonewall Jackson has marched two hundred and fifty miles and won three vic tories in three weeks. This man must bo suppressed. Ilia mind is evidently impair ed. He has forgotten tho art of war entire ly. He has taken it into his hoad that war means fighting, action, movement, not trench digging, then squalling for reinforcements, theii falling back. We shall hear presently that be believes it not to bo altogether im proper to wound the feelings of the Yan kees. After that it is not unreasonable to expect that ho will break the only spade ha ever hud, cross the Potomac, throw away every cartridge, cirry Washington at tho point of bayonet, and walk into Philadel phia some fine morning, with his chin at an elevation of forty-five degrees and before, the army of the Chickahominy : decides whether it will bo agrooable to Mr. McClel lan not to wait his will and pleasure, even till doomsday. This .nan Jackson must be suppressed, or else ho will change the hu mane and Christaiu policy of tho war, and demoralize tho Government. Evidently ho has lost his mind. Down with him, or ho will rs'ablish the independence of the Southern Confederacy. The Aqe of Iron. Tho classic poet have much to say of the Ages which they designate as the Ase of Iron, the Age of Brass, the Age of Silver, and, Gold. Of course, they reckoned the last to be incom parably tho best, and they speak always of the Golden Age a3 the synonym of all poasi-. bio excellence and prosperity.
