The following is enough embalmed, and we trust it will be. of immortality: " Referring to the < Confederate Congress hit: reel wn, Bient of their owd, which was altogether sacrificing government—a government which made as heroic a struggle for independence as ver glorified the pages of history. Why, bless you, warlike brethren of the Northern press, it was the fault of yoar people entirely that that government was demolished, and that we " Confederates " are foroed back into the Union. . " ' We would not have been in it to-day, and the hateful " Confederates" would not be in yoar Congress but lor your physical superior ity. We stayed ont as long as.we could; Ve managed to pat several hundred thousand, more or less, oi yonr best imported Europeans under the daisies—with here and there a few natives; we fongh', and fought, and fought until we could fight no more. Then we had to go baok becapse yon, who were oar con querors, forced us. If our presence is dis tasteful, blame yourselves. If you did not want as to mingle with jlon and have a share in the government, why did you not let ns stay oat of your detestable old Union when we went ont ? We'd have been happy enough if yon had let ns alone. ' " • Pierce vs. Ulysses. When Franklin Pierce was President of the United States, an army officer who had served with him in the Mexioan war, and who was personally intimate with him, committed some dereliction of duty in which the style of arms allotted for the quota of each State was concerned. The offioer was immediately re lieved from duty, and to avoid a conrt-martial his friends nrgeutly besought the Preaident to allow him time to resign. "No, gentle men," said the President, "if he were my own brother I would not do it." The offioer was tried and dismissed the service. Whab a vast difference between the Exeontive action then and that which we are pained to behold now prevails in Washingtoq ! 0 ro 'i >r *\ , b 18 it y. , * i . > 6 1 Let President tirant be Called* [From the Chicago Times.] By the way, why not call Grant himself be fore the committee and the grand jary? He received Belknap's confession, and is prob ably the best witness now in reach. There need be no hesitation on the score of delicacy or regard for his position. He abdicated his right to any consideration on that score when he volunteered his evidenoe in the late St. Louis case. Vibtue and Necessity —Grant is praised a great deal by the organs for snch appoint ments as those of Mr. Dana and Judge Taft; bat when a man finds that the only way to of State Iceep his whole administration oat Prison is to change his system of appoint ments, we c m not see that virtne practised under such pressure is worthy very great praise. It hits taken Grant a great while to find oat that there is any one else in this country besides his personal friends, and he might never have learned this if the dis corery had not been forced upon him by the faot tnat his friends are so generally dishonest men. Discoveries made in suoh circum stances are not entitled to medals.— N. Y. Herald. The only remarkable thing about the sub joined stanzt is the faot that all the letters of the alphabet are used in its construction ex cept e, the one most frequently employed in ordinary composition : " A jovial swain may rack his brain, And tSx bis fancy's might ; * To quiz iu vain, for 'tis most plain, That what I say is right." The color of a soldier's uniform is shown to be not so much a matter of taste as of vital importance. Experience proves that men are hit in battle according' to the cplor of their dress.

The Philadelphia Xorih American makes a great ado about a new process of making mo lasses from corn, which has been successfully tried in Iowa. There is nothing ne\t in this. Some dozen years ago I he process was dis covered by a German chemist in Buffalo. He came down here and sold his patent for more than half a million to some great sugar re finers in this city. They thought they were going to make sugar by it; but it turned out ihey oould make nothing but molasses. They concluded that they had lost their money, and have never tried to do anything with the patent— N. Y. Sun. _ Dr. B*was called to visit a lady in Chelsea, Mass. After c jntinuing his calls for' some weeks, she expressed hor fears that it would be inconvenient for him to come so far on her account. "Ob, madam," replied the doctor, innocently, "I have another patient in the neighborhood, and thusï kill two birds with one stone."
