Publishing Company, tho Life of Jeff

the Southern Confederacy, gathered be
hind the scenes in Richmond, by Ed
ward A. Pollard. This is tho most In
foresting work published pertaining to
the Southern Confederacy, and gives
many interesting incidents that are en

the day before Jeff Davis evacuated
Richmond, he removed the archives of
tbe Confederacy, together with a vol
uminous secret correspondence of his
own with lending Northern Domocrats

and so w*U did he hide them that to this
day no one knows where they are hid.

The Typographical Union here (101),

allow the Government Printing Office

vote stood 210 to 29. The Black Douglass

Meantime ho will coutinue to work on

the wbolo practical and moral senso of
the entire nation with him on both ques
tions. I am ashamed of the printers
who can deny those plainest rights. A
poor widow's son, I went into a printing
office as the " poor boy's college," and»
although I didn't go through an appren
ticcship, I have set up a great many
typos, and always found a printing
office a source of information and a pro
moter of reflection. I bavo considered
myself, if not of the craft, a near relation
to it ; and I liavo taken pride in the su
perior intelligence, as I supposed, of the
fraternity. It is therefore a mortifying
disappointment to me to see printers, iu
a deliberate assembly, after their atten
tion had been called to the matter, and
their minds sharpened upon it, go al
most to a man—except such ms have a
direct interest in going the opposite way
—dead against all the light of tho ago.
Is it possible that printers, through
whom all light must come to the rest of
the world, will declino all illumination
of themselvos ?

Chinese Exhibition.
A Company of Chinese athletes aston
ished the people of San Francisco, re

ty^ About ifiof them appeared on the
amid the din and clangor of gongs
kettle-druuis. They first fought a
sham battle with swords, cleavers, pole
axes, lances, and short knives. The
fencing was very rapid, and each tighter
was an expert. Still, one warrior stood
against a host. He disarmed his an
tugonistn fast astliey came; hurled them
them, hewed
hacked them
with brood axes, hacked them with
swords, butted them with his lioud,
kicked them in the breast with both feet
at onoe, and yet found time to execute
hand-springs und vaultiug soinersalts
among them as ho fought. At last he
vanquished all his foes, the half uaked
rascals took to flight. Ho pursued. Some
rough tablos were ranged along the front
of tlio stago to represent hedges, rocks,
io£H and banks, which must oostnict
pursued and pursuer alike. Tho run
ners vaulted the tables, turning lofty
somersaults over each, and landing iu
dirtereutly on their feet, hands heads

too, on a hard stage, covered only with
a few strips of matting. Tho victorious

foes would turn and face hiui, when he
would bound high in the air, and plung

his adversary with such force as to send
head long across tho stage. Ttio

A prototype of these leaders of the
Democratic party who cannot compre
hend that some things have pasted away,
is found by the New York Sun in tne
story "of a deacon who lived in tho good
old days when everybody on the easirrn
s de of the Hudson drank New Eng
land rum. This deacon wus accustomed
for the space of fifty years to take liis
eleven o'clock and four o'clock refresher
of that orthodox bovcriige. At these pre
cise hours lie was wont to go to the well,
and with the old oukcu bucko! that hïi"ô
from the auDque sweep draw a pail of
water to cool and molify'Iiis morning and
evening dram. In process of time, full
of years nnd honors, the deacon was
gathered to his fathers. But the well
sweep still lived ; and such was the force
of habit upon it, coupled with its inca
pacity to forget anything it had once
learned, that for long years alter the
-•as dead the well-sweep con
tinued to go up and down so regularly
at eleven and four o'clock that all the
tools in the neighborhood set their
watches by it. Ho it is with the leaders
of the Democratic party. Forgetting
that negro slavery and all its concomi
tants. and tho Calhoun dogma of State
Rights and all its sequences, are as dead
as tho Connecticut deacon, they go up
and down the gamut of their praises
with the regularity of his well-sweep,
while many of thoir deluded followers

The Franco-American Cable.
The oconn Cable was spliced to tiie
shore end last Wednesday ny the stea
mer William Curry. The cause erf the
failure to splico on Tuesday was that the
shore end was lost. The buoy was easi
ly found, but when t»ken up it was dis
covered that the Cable was detached,
and it was therefore necessary to grap
ple for it. Directly the spliee wus made,
tho instruments and the full staff' of
operators were sent on shore, and com
munication was soon opened with Brest.

A Novero Tornado on L ike Pepin.
The first tornado ever seen at I»akc
Pepin by any of the prevent inhabitants
passed over (lie lake last week. It rose
on the highlands between the Head's
Landing and West Albany roads, came
over tin» edge of the bluff back of Min
now Lake, near Mr. O'Hara s house, and
struck Lake Pepin about a mile below
Lake City, n short distance below Min
now-lake bridge. Its track was about
three hundred yards wide. When It
descended the steep bluff towards Min
now Lake the declivity was swept of its
brush and saplings, and the ground
scraped ns if ten thousand elephants had
slid down there on their haunches. As
it passed over the flat towards the Inke,
tree«, fences, telegraph poles and wires
wero gathered up iuto the air and hurled
in all directions.
The Luke City Leader says : M We
flrst saw the tornado as it wus whirling
out upon Lake Pepin. Our attention
was arrested by hearing a hoarse and
uwlul tear, drowning the noise of the
thunder storm that was thon passing
over the town. Looking southward we
saw a huge egg-shaped cloud whirling
at an altitude of say two hundred yards
Its position was ttieu diagonal, with tlio
small end inclining downwards. The
roar of it was terrible. When it had
passed out upon the lake it assumed a
more upright positiou, sank a little, nud
commenced drawing up the waters to
meet it; nud for some fifteen minutes,
about tho time of its passage ucross the
lake, the waters over a space about a
hundred feet in diameter, were whirling
and rising inspirai form with a violence
and commotion that was uwful to bo
hold. The spray and mist, mixed with
the clouds of dust carried bv the whirl
wind from t he shore, gave the scene the
appeurunce of a lake on lire. As it ucured
the opposite shore tho cloud took the
perfect tunnel shape of tho ocean water
spout, standing iu a perpendicular po
sition.
Leaving the lake, it swept the waters
out upon the beach for a distance of
thirty yards, in waves twenty feet above
the ordinary level of the lake. It struck
lingua Creek flatly in the mouth, and as
it rose to ciimb the bluff and pass over
into Bogus Valley, the trees that it lift
ed from the blurt' side were distinctly
seen from Lake City, four miles distant,
sailing away in tbc tornado, four or live
hundred feet up from the ground,
right wing of the tornado swept to tho
loft of Mr. White's house, being turned
by the heavy timbor. Tue left pained
er the point of the bluff, and the whole
crossed Bogus Creelc below the mill,
climbed the opposite blurts, and swept

The incident is a pleasing one; a roman
