From the Brooklyn Eagle, Dec. 11.
A New York paper declares
to-day .that Geii. Butler was
never considered a jackass or
an idiot. No, he never was so
considered. What Butler con
siders himself'can be gathered
from this satisfaction at not
"beiug called a d n fool; no
matter if they call me a d n
scoundrel." It ought to be
added that Butler never con
sidered it important whose
initials were on spoons and
such. Apropos of this genial
confiscator cf the contents of
disloyal sideboards, the follow
ing Story, will be found both
new and true: While Ben
bossed New Orleans he in
formed a waggish but very ill
Confederate officer, then sick
at home in tho city, that he
must take the oath or clear out.
This order was peremptory.
The Confederate demurred as
much as possible, alleging that
he wa3 up anyhow, "that he
didn't believe in the 6ld
government at all, and that the
odds were he would soon die
and so he got Ben to admin
ister the dose". to hiniself. Ben
complied, holding the book
behind the back of his neck,
so as to bring it within range
of his serviceable orb. The
officer swallowed the ontli .with
sincere and suggestive grima
ces. At its close he seemed
rejuvenated and . lie asked
Ibitjcr, "Ain't I as good a
Union lnnri ns you now, Gen-
eral?" "Ye, if you live np to
that oath," rejoined Ben.
And I can abuse the South ,n
loud ns the worst of you?"
;inqnircd the officer. '-'To your
hearts content," replied the
rVaiily. "Well, then, Oener
nl," added the sick man, raising
in bed, and "fixing" Butler's
one eye, with his two," if you
and ! had that d d oM rebel,
Leo, in our hands, wouldn't we
steal his' watch?" The oath-
taker cot four daa in the
guard-house,- but he said he
was satisfied with the price he
paid for it.

Is Railroad Man a Gentleman?
There seems to be a differ
ence of opinion on this ques
tion among the pupils at the
Walnut Street M. E. Sunday
ocnooiyvnicu tact was discov
ered this wise :
Last Sunday 6nc" of4, the
teachers in the above school
had occasion to ask her class
the definition 6f the' word
"gentleman." Several' of the
boys were stumped, and had
to give it up ; but one little fel
low thought he knew, and
wheri' pushed to' explain him
CI 1 1 1 l . .
self he illustrated Lis under
standing .of the word by say
ing: ,lWhy,- there's Mr. 'Pea-'
body! He's a' gentleman."
But this answer had hardly
been' made before another
youth sang out: "No he ain't,
neither. Mr. Pcabody ain't no
gentleman. He's a railroader 1''
Tho young gentleman
"brought down the house by"
his rciply, and was sent up head.
It' is understood that he is to
receive an annual nass.over the
M. & C. for the year 1872, as a
reward of merit for his success
in the fitudy of human nature.

The lesson drawn from these

The January number of this
popular illustrated dollar
magazine is as full of good
things as a New Year's, morn
is of good promises. Among
the notable rrticle3 is cue on
"Society in AVashington" by
Mr. Kamsdel!,'t!ie well-known
Washington correspondent,
and there is the usual supply
of stories, disquisitions, wife,
uouseiiould articles, a popular
song, nnd departments for
Freemasons, I. O. O. F., G. A.
It., iv. ot L fro the whole
forming a rich collection of
literature for ten cents. The
ISew York Tribune, well says,

American Homes, and that it
will hold its own in many
families against more costly
magazines." A new story by
George Alfred Townsend is
announced for February

friendly voice to say; 'Take
the Golden Age.' .
I have never reprinted in
these columns a single compli
ment which this paper has re
ceived, although the publica
tion ofiice keeps a scrap-book:
containing now more than a
thousand generous notices by
the press.
If I could have my choice of
subscriber?, I would choose
those who are adverse to the
Golden Age's views. We wo
all too much given to reading
one side only. But all parties,
whether in church or state, aro
equally entitled to a fair hear
ing. . This jouiunl opens its
columns aud gives hospitable
welcome to all current opinions
properly presented by respon
sible writers. The same, lib
erty which it thus accords to
others, i't maintains for itself,
lis editorial columns arc as
dogmatic and headstrong a3 a
radical journal ought to be;
and at the same time, the spirit
that pervades this whole sheet
is (1 trust) catholic and charit
able. If I may be allowed to
boast ntnl, it is that tho Gol
den Age, although greatly mis
represented itself, takes partic
ular and unusual pains never
to misrepresent others.
In opening the second vol
ume, and in asking my readers
to go along with me for an
other year, I shall probably
say as many unwise things (or
what the world esteems such)
as I have been in the habit of
doiujrallrnv life. Oftentimes
what seems wisdom to mc, hap
pens to seem folly to, others.
God, time, aud .our children's
children must decide for us all.
Meanwhile, if the Golden Age
not the soul of honcsty,then I
have mistaken my motives, and
trust that some sudden ca
lamity may blot' out both the
paper and its editor.
Into this journal I have put
all my heart, purse, and ambi
ticm. Nobody eke ovus a cent
of it, nor is anybody else re
sponsible for its utterance?.'
All person, of whatever op'm'
ions iii politics or religion,' who
are not afraid of free discussion,
and who believe in going to

fully lcquested to procure a
few subscribers, and to do thU
