This is a question I should be remarkably happy to have coifed to my own, and to the satisfaction of others. Ooce I had no doubt ou the subject; but DOW, judging from what has happened to me iu the past few days, I must confess my opinion is somewhat sbakeo. It was entirely foreign to my intention to create a sensation, or enact a deception when I packed my carpet bag, last week, and donned my best suit preparatory to setting forth ou a visit to my aunt Nabby Bleeker. Aunt Nabby resides in the northeast ern corner of Maine, in a town which I will denominate Pineville. I hope the reader will excuse me for alluding to my personal appearance. I have a military air, and perhaps my dress may be a little more martial than exactly befits a non-combatant. But the ladies assure me that blue is becoming to my complexion, and who will gainsay the ! ladles ? I have been strongly advised to enlist, but lam totally unfit for service. The smell of gunpowder makes me faint, and I never fingered a giin but once in my ilife, aud I was confined to my bed for a fortnight afterward. Not exactly from the effects cf the fright, but because the confounded fire-arm resented my awkward handling, and kicked me so severely that my right eye was in mourning for months, and my nose was knockddoutof the per pendicular into the slantindicular. I arrived at Pineville rather late on i one Friday night, and it was ten miles i further on to my Ailnt Nabby's rustic I cottage—towns have some extent of ter ritory ID Maine —I pot up at the Wash ington House, a one horse affair ia the straggling village of Pineville. I registered rnv Dame —P. SberidaD— on the hotel book. My christian name is Philometheus, but owing to the oddity ot the title and the ominous length, I rarely write it iu full. I got some supper, and retired imme idiately to my room. I had just falleu ; asleep and was dreaming serenely of kiss ling Mattie Baker, my sweetheart for the time, when I was aroused by a great ; commotion in the street beneath my: window.- Cries of —"We must see him !" "Trot him out!" "Three cheers for the gal-1 lant Phil i' rent the air. I concluded some great character had arrived in town, and iu my anxiety to behold the curiosity with the rest, I for-, got my yeliuw flannel night cap, and my . sparse toilet, and springing out of bed, I threw up tho window aDd leaned out. j Just as I had got my eyes fixed on the swaying crowd bcloW, there was a rap at my door. '■Come in !" cried I, fearing to answer personally to the summons, lest I should mis 3 my chacCe of seeing the celebrity. The landlord and landlady came in, but the ladv retreated instantly, and re mained giggling outside the door. "My dear sir," said the laudlord, "Ve must go down. They Won't go off till they see ye." '•They ? who are they ?" '•The people around here," said he, I ! "It hain't often such an extinguished; character comes here, and 'tain't no use; to try to put 'em off." "1 aoi obliged to them—much obliged i to them," said I, ' but really—" "Taint no use," said he, doggedly, "you must go down or the Washington House will go down. They're sure to do it!" "Oh, Well," said I —"In that case I will go down, surely"—and began to dress. In my hurry I knocked over the | candle, and was obliged to complete my adornment In the dark; I got into my paclalooos with the bind part in front, but there was no time to remedy the error, as the vociferous calls of the land-! lord for me to hurry, assured me. I flew down the stairs two at a time— stepped on my suspenders, went half way down, and was precipitated to the next floor, when I was brought up iu the aims of a plump chambermaid, who Was evi dently waiting on purpose to catch me. Before I could resist, &he had planted a sounding smack on my blonde mous tache and cried delightfully to her coth panions, "There 1 I've kissed him first!" I mentally rejoiced that Mattie Baker was not present, and resolved she shoulo i not know anything about it. Mattie is red haired, aud folks pretend to say that sho has a temper. I freed myself from my saluting fe males and advanced to the door. My appearance was greeted by yells and shouts and cheers perfectly deafuing. Men, women and children to the number :of several scores, were congregated in ; front of the hotel, waviDg their hats and handkerchiefs, aDd hurrahing. "There he comes j that's him J three ! times three for conquering Sheridan !" "I am obliged to you, ladies and gen ! tleraen—greatly obliged to you," laid I making my best bow. £)ebofed to tije flriijciples of Jirqe Dityocirqcy, qifd th® jDiwehfiiwiioii of ?Joh}lißf, wd ffetos. COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA., TUESDAY AUGUST 22, 1865, "He comes !" cried the orewd, swaying frantically about and ewingiug tbeir hand kerchiefs more lustily. And I, not wish ing to be behindhand in the enthusiasm, pulled out my baodkershicf, and swung it, crying at the top of my luogs : "Yes, he comes, he comes ! Hurrah !" "What a martial air!" exclaimed aD ancient feiuale, purveying me through her glasses, "he resembles the Duke of Wel ling ton." "I wonder if he's married ?" said a rory cheeked girl in a cloud of yellow curls and pink ribbons. "No, my darling," said I, "but I want to be." "Such a costume!" said the ancient female. "Ar®y blue, and 6tich an orig inal cut to the—the —coverings of the lower extremities." "Lordy massy !" exclaimed an old lady in a poke bonnet, fixing her eye on my suspenders which hang in front, "doyou see bis shoulder straps. I've hecrd our David tell a sight about them thtDgs." "Yes, but they look au amazing lot like Jerry's gallerscrs !" whispered anoth er old lady, to whom the remark was ad dressed. "Sir," said a sallow faced gentleman, advancing to ray side, "I wish to mention to you something which I have heard said of you. I deem it my duty as pas tor of the Pineville meeting house, to rebuke sin always. I have heard it re marked that you are profane among the soldiers." "I do not eomprehend you," said I. "Ah, then I will be clearer. I have heard that you are addicted to the habit of using profane language, and I beg leave to present to you tLia tract on the Sin of Profanity, hoping you will peruse it, end profit by it." "Thank you," said I, "you mean well, doubtless, but I must say I don't axactly see the point." "What is yotr opinion of Sherman ?" asked a brusque little dandy, swinging his rattan, and removing his cigar from his mouth loDg enough to ask the question "Sherman's a trump I" said I with enthusiasm. "Ah me/' said my tract distributing friend, "be plays cards as well aa swears." "What do you think of the negro race?" asked a dark cotnplexioned man. "I think they smell stronger than the deuce," eried I, beginning to lose my patieuce. "Merciful heaven!" exclaimed the sallow faced man, "he is pro slavery !" "Sir,"said the landlord—who had been in earnest conversation with a half dcSen ladies for the last five minutes—"these ere women folks won't be satisfied with out a kissin ye ! They want to have it said they have kissed Sherrydan." I blushed up to the roots of my hair, j "Law, how modest he is," said one of my feminine friends. "He's as red as our turkey gobbler." The prospect of being kissed by some of those pretty girls was decidedly agree able—l felt delicious over it—but those vinegar visaged old women. I shrunk from the ordeal. But I am naturally a gallant man, and reflecting that I could; wash my face abundantly —I consented. ; "Come one, come all!" said t. They obeyed. They flung their plump arms around my neck, and surrounded me on every hand. I felt like a pickled sardine ; I smelt musk, onion 9, patchouly, snuff, jockey elub, bard cider, cologne, doughDuts, boiled mutton, cinnamon, mustard seed, curdamouds, buns and every other odor under the sun. Kissing is a grand invention, but there is some choice in it, I think. At last they bad all kissed me but one, and she was standing apart making prep arations. I noticed her with a mighty trembling. She was ugly as an ogre, and the look of dogged determination on heT wi2cned face convinced uie that I need hope nothing from h2r mercy. "I never could taste anything with my teeth in I" she exclaimed in an under tone, and instantly out came a full set of teeth, and she rushed towards me 1 grew giddy with the prospect, and turn ing I fled before ber, like the billow be fore a hurricane. *1 had no thought for the figure I cut —my only object was to get out of reach. Through the entry—down a flight of back stairs, knocking over the hostler and the cook, who were giggling together on the steps—through the yard, where I left the greatest part of my Coat tail in the possession of a covetous dog—and over a fence into the open country. And all the time I could hear the steps of my pursuer close behind me. "You may run," she cfied, "btlt 1 will catoh ye. It shan't be said all the wimmen in Pinevillo kissed Gen. Sheri dan but me. I'll do it or die." Good gracious! So 1 had been takeu for Gen. Sheridan. No wonder the peo ple turned out en masse to welcome me. And still I hurried on. The snow was deep—l was very nearly blown, and I sunk deepen deepen M every itep My female friend gained on me, and just as I fell headloug into a concealed mud hole she grasped me by the collar, and before I could clear myself she had done the deed. She had kissed me. The landlord had followed just behind, and I offered him ten dollars to take me to my aunt Nabby's that night. Ho accepted the bribe and just before day break I sank at the feet of my res pected relative. I lay in bed a week afterwards—too much eihausted to stir ; but I saw a copy of the Pineville Eaglc } and in it the fol lowing paragraph: j "GROSS IMPOSITION. —Some low lived wretch passing himself off as Gen. Phil. Sheridan, arrived in our village, and put up at the Washington House, on Friday evening. There was quite a demonstra tion among oar citizens before the impo sition was discovered. The bogus General has gone to parts unknown. It is sup posed that be Was some drunken lunatic, from his conduct." I make no comments, but judge my sensation." * # i i Petroleum TV as by Meets a Re constructed Southerner. A better burlesque we do not remem ber to have seen than the following. Its chief value however, is that is "too troo:" SAINT'S REST, (which is in the Stait | uv Noo Gersey,) July 12,1865. ) I hav bin in Washington, irad while ther was interdoost to Gineral Marion : Sumpter Fitzhoo Gusher, uv Mississippy. 1 wus anxious 2 meet with a represent ative Dimekrat uv the South, 2 inter change views, 2 hev soothin confidents 2 unbuzZum, beccz for the past 4 yeers the Dimekratik party hez bin trooly seek shunal, and the seckshin it hez okepied is not the identikle seckshin unto which the orfices is lokated, and ooly by a per feck union with our wunst-loved brethren uv the South, kin we ever git intoo troo* ly Nasbunal ground.

Hamilton, the now Provisional Governor of Texas, indicates by its firm, decided, and manly tone that he is faithful to the Union pro* divides which were exemplified by his unsworvering opposition to the wholct secession movement. If ho persistsntly maiutains the policy ho now clearly cfid unequivocally enunciates, there is little danger that slavery under any form of guise, can be perpetuated in Texas, of I that the freedmen will be deprived of any right or privileges which the nation haX eudeavored to secure to thein. No Nor them man could expect more pointed emphatic, and pertinent declarations on the issues growing out of emaneipatioa that those which Gov. Hamilton frank* ly utters in the extreme southwest* ern frontier of the old dominions of slavery,where its champions quite recent* ly supposed that institution had acquired a aew and interuiitiah'.e lease of life frouj tho rich virgin soil. The whole Indian population withitj the limits of the teritory of the United iStates is estimated at about 320,000 to ■350,000 ; 14,000 or 15,000 of whom aro located east of the Mississippi Iliver, in Wisconsin, Michigan, Mississippi and ;New York. A new Indian war has broke out along the line of the telegraph between San Prancisoo and the eastern seaboard; and as the ludian9 declare they will make a death struggle against ad vancing civilization, it is probable thous* ands of them will be destroyed by the contest they are so madly provoking, and that we are about to have the last great Indian war. The Secretary of the Inte rior has instructed the Indian agents,that jin all cases cf difference of opinion with the military authorities about the policy to be pursued to hostile or dangerous tribes, they are to defer to the judgment of tho latter j and our soldiers make fear . ful havoc among the red maraudert when they fairly commence a desperate conflict j with them. — The True Mart. He is above a mean thing. He cannot stoop to msan fraud. He iavades no se crets in the keeping of another. He bo trays no secrets confided to his keeping! He never struts in borrowed plumage.— He never takes selfish advantages of oaf mistakes. He uses no ignoble weapons in controversy. He never stab 3in tho dark. lie is ashamed of inucudoes He is not one thing to a man's face and an other behind his back. If by accident he comes in poses?ion of his neighbors coun sels, he passes upon them an act of instant oblivion. He bears scaled packages with* out tampering with the wax. Papers not meant for his eye, whether they fluttef at the window or lie open before him ia unguarded exposure,are sacred to him—> He encroaches on no privacy of others, however the sentry sleeps. Holts and bars, locks and keys, hedges and pickets, bonds and securities, notices to trespass er-yire nooe of theiu'for him. He may la trusted by hino9elf out of sight—near tho thmest partitions —anywhere, lie buy! no office, he sells none, he intrigues for none. lie would rather fail of his rights than wio by dishonor. Ho will eat hon est b-ead. He insults no man. He tramples on no sensitive feeling. If h6 have a rebuke for another, he is straight forward, open, maoly. In whatever be judges honorable he practices toward every man. Clearly, the questioa, vVuat kind of education shall be the condition of suf : frage, is the vital question of the day I Ex Gov. Emery Washburn did not say at the Commencement dinner, "Educate j the white men and the black men of the South, and all will be well." He is tod i sensible a man to threw utfso "glittering a generality." He specified the kind oi education. Educate the men of the South, white arid black, into sound nu* tionality and into sound common sense, and all will be well. Davis and Lee and Stevens are highly educated in a certain way, but not into a sound "nationality.'' T.hey acknowledge no nation. The nation, in the words of Wigfall, is but "the one horse power in Washington." The su preme power is the Stats. Lee's educa tion says, Go with Virginia; if Virginia goes for the nation, then go for the nation; if Virginia goes against the nation, then go against the nation. South of Mason and Dixon's line, this is the prevalent style of education. Evidently, the condition of suffrage at the South, for the present generation, must net be education. It is, distinct ively the thing the natron has to fear. A new style of education must become dom ioant in that region, before it Can be safe to base thereon the fabric cf nationality. For the immediate issues, the first, sec ond and third condition is loyalty—Joy* alty to the cation as superior to the States —loyalty to the whole as greater than & D part —loyalty to the government which rules by the authority of "tb* people"—all the people, except such as, by treason, or other forms of oriaic, fgf# fit tLe right of fiiorwe-igoty,
