B7 CLABA AUGUSTA. vMr.!!WHiram Woodhouse :was naturally a very timid man.- .Not that he was laek-!ng'-in moral cr physical courage, but he was. afraid of the women. 1 Ua ell other oc casioDs' he wa nsuallr eanat to";the emer gency, be it whatever it might; but place him tsls a lete with a woman: Bnd. to use a vulgar expression,' he was done for. ' II is mother had long ago .settled down to the uncomfortable conviction that Will- ism would never marry; and the girls had arrived at the same conclusion; it had be come quite a thing to say, in making com parisons, ,"As .great a fool as Will Wood boue!" ; . - x . For take note, bashful young gentlemen however much ladies may admire mod esty in theirownex, they invariably depise a man who has not oourage enough - to say to the girl of bis choice, "I love you." Will admired the girls in his way; but he looked upon them very mush as sensi ble people do upon' a hornet's nest, as a curi ous piece of architecture, but not safe to bs familiar with. . ' So Le kept his distance, and io the mean time arrived at the mature age of twenty three. Theo be met, for the first time, at a picnic party, Adelaide Browne. We be lieve people with the stonic3t hearts fall ic love at picnics; and from that hour poor Will had no comfort of bis life. Sleeping or waking, his dreams were full of the beauti ful Mis Browne. Surely, there never was another of the numerous Browne family like her! Bice eyes, white mnsiin" dress. with knots of pink ribbons, brown hair, red lips, pearly teeth, snowy hands all danc ed together in a miscellaneous "all bands round" bofore bis excited vision. Adelaide, all unconscious of the trouble she had caused, went ber way, breaking the hearts' of most the young gentlemen in Highbridge, and trying hard to fracture the few that remained whole. She was visit ing her Aunt Hooper; and it is an undenia ble fact that ladies always. take best where they are not known. This is no libel on the sex no indeed! for with gentlemen this troth is still more applicable. :jfilrs. Hooper was a widow lady of no small personal attractions, in her own esti mation; and if she was not so young as she might have been, she thought she was, and behaved accordingly. . She still affected short sleeves, and profuse ringlets of glass iest black though envious iddividuals per sisted that hdr curlswere made et the hair dresser's. -Thes same persons also believ ed that fhe was anxiou to supply the place of her dear deceased as 83jn as possible! For a week after meeting with Adelaide, Will bore up bravely. The second meet ing destroyed all the stock of composure he had been hoarding up. He took desperate ly to the Muses, and walked the whole night away, to the infinite destruction of shoe leather, and the ii finite disgust of his practical papa. - IJe met Adelaide not quite frequently. There was an excursion to Mount Gilbo one fine day, and Will had the ecstatic pleasure of trending on Adelaide's dress, thereby, throwing her bear.long into a pile of brnsh; and while Laura Blake picked her -up, and helped to pin on her flounces, he stood by, frightened half out of his wits. From that time he pined rapidly. His appetite wes a thing of the past. Uis mother thought him io a quick dacline, and dosed him with hoirLound and Dr. Perkins patent pac.no puis, tie grew worse and worse. " ; ' At last, thinking himself near bis end, he confessed te his mother. She was thunder struck; but at length, like a sensible wo man:, she advised him to put on his: tother clothes, and go right over and lay the case before Miss Browne. . It couldn't kill him, she said; and then if she refused him, why there were as good fish in the sea, etc. - Will took tbroe ilays to consider, aud at the end of that lime his mind was made up. He swallowed a double dose of blackberry cordial, doar.ed his flame colored dress and aud black and blue plaids, brushed his hair till it sbone like ebony, covered his head with his father's leu dollar beaver, and made the best of his way to Mrs. Hooper's. ' Not that he intended to ask Adelaide but Mrs. Hooper. If he could only get the aunt won oyer, to bis cause, and employ ber to state the . condition of his heart to her neise, he should be happy. He felt sure that he never should live througn confess ing himself to Adelaide; and if he did, and she should say no, he was satiefiad he should faint away right on the spoil ; : As good fortune would have it, he found Mrs.. Hooper alone, ia her best gown and bumor. She was charmed to see him, and treated him to nuts and cider, and a seat on the sofa so near herself that poor Will was at his wits! end to fame the first word of his errand.. They talked of the weathe rand the crops until the clock ' struck'-ten. The widow tried to make him thiak:' it was only nine; hut he was not so far gone but that the ter rible moment could be no longer delayed. He must make a beginning. Mrs. Hooper, said he, I ;cima. over this evening be hesitated. i-'-Y'es. Will, she said most encouragingly, j: I came over ; .-. . ': .: --Yes.

' But, continued he, this is a very delicate "business," ver! ' I come to ask you --to to ' ; 1' .l- " -i Go od; don't, be afraid.- I. am listen ing. - . The fact of it is, I am In love! dssperale ly, there I've doqe lt! .:. ?; ' . Mercy me! Why William! and I never mistrusted it never!' Well, of all things! And the widow edged a ; little closer, and put her fat hand in. William's.. .- Yes, I'm in love; and I came to aak you Ifyou.would . ... - . Will I? To be sure I will? How could you think , otherwise? , I . have always thought so much of you. ...But it is so ; sud den; what will folks say? ' : Deuced if I care? , crjed Will,' elated at the prospect before him; i's nobody's, busi ness. . Am i to be .wretcnea on account oi what people will say? Don't bug me so, Mrs., Hooper, I beg I I ain't used to it; andV and, what was that noise? , . , .. The tnice, I guess.. Dear Will bow glad lam you told me. f . And you will ask 'Adelaide and make it all right with her? , Adelaide? . Oh! she will have no earthly objections of course not. . Are you sure? If I was only certain of it! Oh, Mrs. Hooper, I loved her the mo ment I set eyes on her! : Her? Who? . ' . ' . Why, your niece, Adelaide Browne. She is the only woman on earth that I could ever be happy with. I shall die if I don't get her. Mrs. Hooper turned purple.. She caught up the poker and flew at our hero like a maniac. He made for the door, she follow ed close. . I'll thow you bow to Insult a respecta ble woman, I'll show you how to steal the affections of a guileless heart, and then prove false! she cried, each showing accom panied by a thump from the poker. Will bad at last succeeded in putting the door between him aud his antagonist; and in frantic haste, he dived down over steps and at the bottom reeled full :nto the arms of Adelaide Browne herself, who was just returning from a friend's. Don't let her get at me! be cried, I'd rather die than she should bug me again! It's you I love, and not her. and she's mad der thit a hatter. It was not a very elegant proposal, but Miss Browne's self possession insured Will's evtiilasting weal. She accepted him on the spot, for she had liked him all along, and nothing bad stood between them but his abominable bashfuiness. , - Will is a happy husband ard father dow; but even to this day. the stebt of a widow will make him tremble they are so inti mately associated in bis mind with pokers. Should Democrats Enlist. . . The Beliofonte Watchman answers the question in the following language: "We have been asked time and again if Democrats should enlist and help to prose cute this war, as it is now conducted? Like persons that belong to any other party. Democrats have a right to do as they please, and as they see proper about going into this war, aud we suppose they will regardless of our opiuion as to the propriety or impro priety of doing so. Io a war of this kind, waged by the General Government against Sovereign States, by which the first princi ples of Democracy are violated we can have but little faith in any one claiming to be a Democrat that gives it encouragement in any manner whatever, yet if a man desires to fight to free a pack of lazy worthless nig gers, and run the risk of being killed, to de grade his own race to a level with them if he wishes to destroy the property and homes of those who ask only for their right3, and entail misery and destruciioo, upon a peo ple who never harmed him if he wants to strengthen the hands of the despotism at Washington, and force the people of the North to become serfs, or subjects of King Abribam if he would assist in destroying the American Republic, and help to estab lish a monarchy upon its ruins if be would fasten a debt upon the country that the bones of bis own children will be mortga ged to pay, and increase the price of the ne cessaries of life so that his wife, sister or mother will be compelled to suffer for want of food or clothiDg if he would enrich coo tractors impoverish honest laboring men, and have death and desolation ride rampant over the whole country--then we would say enlist. These are the only results that can flow from a continuance of this horrible, wicked war, and that a Democrat a disci pie of Thomas Jefferson will assist in hur rying them on we do not believe. If the members of cur party , had stood firm and left the Abolitionists to 'prosecute their own war, it wculd have been over long since and our country would never have been dis graced with an Abolition party again. ' For our part we have never taken any stick in this war, and never shall never asKea a man to eplist and never will, for' as long , as men and money are furnished those in pow er it will be prolonged when they are no longer to ba had it must stop, and. peace with its many, blessings will then be eojoy edl Not bsfore."

The sentence of Obed Reynolds, Jr., of Freetown, convicted of the murder of Bul lock has been commuted by the governor and council of imprisonment for life in the state prison. We have no doubt that the propriety of this remission of the death penalty will be acquiesced in, certainly when the facts are known. Reynolds was a boy of eighteen, bom and brought up in that part of Freetown known as "Slab Bridge," Nobody without undeniable proof would believe that a community of such ignorance," of absolutely heathenish ignorance as this is represented to be, could be found in Bris tol county. Two thirds of the witnesses at this trial, adult natives of the town, signed their names with a cross. The Bible was literally an unknown book. Reynolds could neither read nor write and had never heard of Christ except as an oath! At the trial every member of the family, except the old father (who appeared through the whole as an honest man,) committed the most deliberate perjury. Well was it asked by a benevolent woman, who, since his con viction, has taken great pains to instruct Reynolds, "what could be expected of a boy who had a bail mother, a. bad sister, and a bad wife?" The hanging of such a boy would have been only judicial murder. The above is from the Boston Common wealth, a paper which usually regards the people of New Englaod as being of the elect of heoven, while all the rest of the world is in outer darkness. But what a picture is this of a community living within an hour's ride of "Hub of the Universe," and not more than a guoshot's distance from Ply meuth' Rock itself? 'HeatHenish : igno rance," the "Bible literally unknown," the "name of Christ never beard except as an oath." Such is the account of a Massachu setts. - The reader can draw his own moral. New York World. Retaliation In Kind. Id the Summer of 1863, Wm.

T.J 1 1 ! . are now at jonnson's lsiana worsiog uui the terms of their sentence. These facts were laid before the Confederate Govern ment by members of the Kentucky delega tion now in Congress, and Friday Major Turner, commandant at the Libby Prison Dost, received an order from the Secretary of War consigning two of the Federal priso ners with the rank of Captain to a situation identical with that of Messrs.

"Tom, by boy, you'll have to go this time, I fear." says the father seriously, ris ing from his chair.

New York News. Profits of Woolej Mills. The Wash ington Woolen Mills at Lawrence, Mass., have sold goods the past year to the amount of four millions af dollars, and their clear profits amount to $340,000, 0r fifty percent on their capital.' While shoddy contractors are thus amassing fortunes out of this war, growing rich and opulent out of the blood and treasure of the nation, the poor operatives in their employ, working bixteen Jiours per day for merely enough to koep soul and body together, have:clamor d for an advance in their wages but with- out success. Tbey quite work recently for a time and demanded an advance in wages, which was refused them, and finally utter starvation stared them in the face, com pelled them to go to work at old rates. These shoddy contractors are an extremely loyal set of men, who are for prolonging the war to its utmost extent that they may realize the more out of it. A man's loyalty to the Government, that is, Old Abe, is now in exact proportion to the amount, of profits realized or benefits received or expected to be received from and on account of the war. It is a good thing, now-a-days, to the pockets, to be loyal it pays, to some people. - - '- - Maknkrs in Brazil.
