A TALK WITH JEFF DAVIS.
Mr. William L. Taylor, of tlie law firm of Peelle & Taylor, returned re cently from New Orleans. While on the trip he visited Jefferson Davis at his home, near Beauvoir, Miss., a small station on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, midway between Mobile and New Orleans. Mr. Taylor describes the home of the Confederate leader as a typical old-time plantation mansion, one story in height, with spacious halls and an imposing por tico. The house lies in view of the Gulf, and is surrounded by a thick grove of orange and magnolia trees. Mr. Taylor says that he was received cordially by Mr. Davis, and, after they had been talking a few moments, Mrs. Davis and her daughter, a handsome young lady appeared in the room, ac companied by a young Chicago law yer. Mr. Davis insisted that he should remain there over night. During the evening the conversation turned ■ upon the war, and Mr. Davis talked freely upon all subjects that were brought up. “What is the southern estimate of the Federal Generals?'1 inquired Mr. Taylor. “X cannot give the Southern esti mate,11 Mr. Davis replied. “I can give “What do you think of Grant?” was asked. “Grant,” lie said, “was largely a creature of circumstances. I remem ber that the first time I met Grant was when he was stationed on the Pa cific Coast as a Lieutenant. 1 was then Secretary of War. He was charged with drunkenness and neg lect of duty. I gave him his choice between standing trial and resigning. He resigned. I knew that he would. Gen. Grant was a great military com mander. He was very tenacious. He fought a battle as a matter of busi ness. Men were mere cogs in the wheel. All the men and means he wanted were placed at his command, and he had every advantage. He would have been discharged from the Army of the Potomac if it had not been that too many changes had al ready taken place in the army.” “What is your estimate of Gen. Sherman?” was asked. “Sherman,” Mr. Davis said, “was looked upon in the South as Alaric was by the Romans. He was their Scourge of God.” He was cruel, yet he was a great strategist.” “Yes,” interrupted Miss Davis, “he was an inhuman monster. What he did not use he destroyed.” “Sherman hesitated,” Mr. Davis continued, “for a long time between joining the Confederate army and the Union army. We were uncertain which he would do. He finally joined the Union army, thinking, I suppose, that more could be gained by it.” “My idea,” remarked Mr. Davis, “is that Meade was the most skilful Gen eral in the Federal army. Gen. Lee once said to me that he could under stand the movements of all the Gen erals in the Federal army easier than those of Gen. Meade. Those above Meade never allowed him to display his full power. He was hampered and kept down through jealousy.” Mr. Taylor—How did you regard McClellan? “Well, sir, McClellan was the best trained soldier in the war. While Sec retary of War I sent him on three im nnrfnnt. tnissinrtc—r»na +/% _ a _ --1.V study military methods. He returned with a better knowledge of military discipline and methods than was pos sessed by any man in his country.” Mr. Taylor—Could he have entered Richmond if he had pushed on across the Chickamauga? “Well,” Mr. Davis answered, laugh ing, “I once knew a farmer who said that if his foresight had been as good as his hindsight he might have make a fortune on cotton. Something of the same kind was probably the fault with McClellan. If he had known the weakness of the Confederates, and had thrown his army across the river, I think he could have entered Rich mond. We thought he would, and I believe Gen. Lee thought so, too.” Mr. Taylor—Who do you regard as the greatest of the Confederate Gen erals? “I consider Gen. Sidney Johnson as the greatest General produced on either side by the late war. Gen. Lee stands next in my estimation, and as we move away from the war his des perate struggle against overwhelming numbers will be a marvel in war an nals.” “Mr. Lincoln was a vulgar joker,” Mr. Davis said, “but withal he was a great man. He was wise and he was honest. He could have been of great good to the South if he had lived, and his untimely death was a great loss to us.” He was quiet and apparently in deep meditation for several minutes, and then resumed: “Yes it was a great loss, for he was succeeded by a low, mean demagogue—Johnson—and a demagogue is the worst of men. Johnson was unschooled, but a man of great native ability. He had no convictions, and tried to please all. Lincoln was a man of great vigor of mind, although he was plain and rough. If Mr. Lincoln had lived, the South would have had a President that understood her condition; and he would have been of more benefit to her than any other man could possi-. bly have been. He was an honest man. His death was a great misfor tune to the South.”—Indianapolis Jour nal. THE SYMBOLISM OF RINGS. The symbolism of the ring is closely interwoven with life and death, with Church and State, with heart love and the daily needs of human existence. The King’s signet was as important as his crown, the ring united him to his kingdom like the bishop to his see, or the abbot to his monastery in the olden days. It was hallowed by the tears of mourners. It clasped the finger of the betrothed maiden, and of the bride at the altar, it dedicated also the widow to her Cod. But it was also used as an amulet to avert danger by the super stitious, and even as an agent in the commission of secret crime by evil men in high places, as in the case of the famous rings of the Borgia with their tiny secret reservoir of poison. The signet ring of Caesar Borgia is still in existence. It is of gold, slightly en amelled, and bears the date 1503. On the inside is a motto in old French, signifying “Bo what you 'must, come what will.” At its back is a slide, within which was concealed poison which its owner would drop into the wine of an unsuspecting guest, who happened to be obnoxious to him. Another Borgia, Alexander VI, pos sessed a key-ring which unlocked a casket. When he wished to be rid of an objectionable person he requested him to oblige him by unlocking the casket, and, as the lock was a little hard to open, the pin concealed within gave the fatal prick. The Episcopal ring is of great antiq uity, but its fashion was settled in 1194. when it was ordained that it should be of solid gold set usually with either a ruby or a crystal on which no thing was to be cut. These were gen erally used as signet rings and some times for special uses, as when the fonts of baptism were sealed from the beginning of Lent to Holy Saturday. The newly made Bishop of the Church of Rome is still invested with a ring by which he is;married to the Church. This is always worn on the right hand. A cardinal's ring is set with a sap phire. The Pope's ring is not worn by him but i^ kept for sealing pur poses. The ring of the fisherman, as it is called, a signet of steel, is in the care of the Cardinal’s Chamberlain, and is broken with a golden hammer at the death of the Pope, and a new one made for his successor. Mourning or memorial rings had many and various devices and inscrip tions, some of which, as skulls and skeletons, were also used by grave, re ligious persons. Luther possessed such a one, a small ring [of gold with death's head in enamel, which is still preserved in Dresden. Memorial rings were sometimes made to exhibit a small portrait, and on some occasions to conceal one by a stone. This is the case of the seven rings given away at the burial of Charles I, of England, and one of which is described as fol lows: "Gold, with square-faced dia mond on an oval face, which opens and reveals a portrait of Charles in enamel; the face of the ring, and its back and sides, engraved with scroll-work, filled in with black enamel.” Another of these rings is still more interesting, gold with oval of white enamel only half an inch in size, but divided into four slightly connected compartments, in each of which can be seen, through a magnifying glass, a perfect figure of a cardinal virtue. By touching a spring, this oval opens and discloses an exquisitely painted miniature of uie King, wnn ponuea neara, etc., as he is usually painted. It is said to have been a strong likeness. There is another kind of a ring not so well known, but which was some times common in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, namely, the l ing of dedication to perpetual widowhood. It was then the custom for a widow who desired to live a peculiarly holy life to assume before a prelate vows which bound her to the estate of a widow for life. In the will of one of these, an English widow, she makes mention of the ring wherewith she was “espoused to God.” Another “widow avows” bequeaths a gold ring wherewith she was “sacred.” The betrothal ring given by Luther to his wife is still preserved in his na tive count ry. It is of gold, elaborately wrought with the symbols of the Pas sion of Christ, and is surmounted with a ruby. Inside are the names of Luther and Catharine and the date of their marriage; its workmanship is very fine. Their marriage ring was of the kind called a gimmal—two hoops riv eted together; on one is a ruby, on the other a diamond, and their initials joined them. Within it bears the in scription: “Was Gott egu samen fuget soli rein mensch scheiden”—“What God doth join shall no man part.” These gimmal rings were often used by betrothed lovers—each keeping one hoop till marriage, when the two were united by a rivet and used as a mar riage ring. An inquirer asks: “How can I tell classical music?” That is easy enough. When you hear everybody applaud and look relieved after the piece is finished, then you may know th„t it is strictly classical. ' Those who are most weary of life and yet are most unwilling to die, are such as have lived to no purpose, who have rather breathed than lived. - ?- * 2 S' AMERICAN ENTERPRISE. No invention of the nineteenth cen tury has worked a greater revolution in household economy or conferred more of a benefit on humanity than the sewing machine. The first productions were crude and uncouth in the extreme, and it was re served for American skill and ingenuitv to bring forth a machine of any prac tical value. In order to appreciate the great ad vancement which has taken place it is only necessary to compare one of the machines built during the infancy of the invention with one of the latest improved ‘Light-Running New Home.' All the really good points contained in other machines have been utilized in its construction. Many new im provements and devices have also been added, the result of which is a machine as nearly perfect as it is possible to make one. For simplicity, durability, ease of management and capacity for work, the ‘‘Light-Running New'Home" has no rival, and the happy possessor of one may rest assured that he or she has the very best the world affords. All who send for the company's new illustrated catalogue, and enclose their advertisement (printed on another page') will receive a set of advertising novelties, of value to card collectors.

This deeply interesting story, by the author of "Seba’s Discipline" and "Rubv Hamilton." forms the sec ond issue m the \oung Folks' Library Series, an honor it richly deserves. The plan of the publishers is to make this series a model in everything that goes to constitute good books—inter est, purity of tone, and a direct pur pose to teach lessons of truth, honor and usefulness. These qualities give each separate book a claim upon the consideration of every parent who ex ercises a judicious care over the read ing of his children. The present vol ume may well stand as a representative of the series in all these respects. Margie is the youngest daughter of a country clergyman, and at the age of fourteen is left without father or moth er, but is eared for by kind friends. She is a thoughtful and sympathetic child, and anxious to be of some use in the world. She often wonders what her •■mission" is to be. and at last it is opened up to her. It is by no means a pleasant and romantic one, but she bravely accepts it. and although her trials are neither few nor light, its fruits are abundant and permanent. We do not propose to interfere with the reader's right to enjoy the storv by describing its plot, but’simply give the author’s motive, coupled with an endorsement of the book, not only for its instrinsic value as a story blit as a teacher of lessons which it behooves all young people to learn. The July Harper's will have no less than eleven full-page illustrations—an unexampled number. These include three striking Egvptian heads bv Sir Frederick Leighton. P. R. A.;‘ por traits of Andrew Jackson, one of which shows an “Old Hickory” who looks his name in every line, o’f Daniel Web ster, and of Prince Bismarck, the lat ter from a new photograph, the first since he became “bearded like a pard,” for which the Chancellor courteously gave a sitting especially for the Maqa zine: a remarkable landscape—“The Last Load”—in which Mr. W. H. Gib son goes quite outside his usual man ner, and presents a strong Rousseau like effect : one of Dielman’s charming pictures, illustrating “Nature’s Serial Story;” a characteristic drawing by Abbey of Judith Shakespeare and her gentle cousin; a pleasant picture of “The children’s Hour” on the sea shore. by Sandhaui: and a noteworthy view of New \ ork City, as seen from the west shore of the Hudson with its picturesque foreground, from studies hv nnH T-IfPL!„ c . _ trait and picture gallervto which even the readers of Harper's have not been accustomed.

The present number gives an interesting account of a race of a merchant ship with the U. 8. sloop-of war “Ceyenne,” from Monterey to San Francisco. It also describes a visit to Santa Cruz, and tells how San Fran cisco appeared in April, 1843, when it was a town with but few houses and no commerce. Those who know San Francisco, as it now exists, should read and see what it was like before gold was discovered, and long before Cali fornia was annexed to the United States. There is also a vivid account of a visit to San .Jose, and the immense number of geese and ducks that were met with in the creek and in the pond.
