THE CONSTITUTION AND THE UNION, PIBST, LAST, AND ALL THE TIME JI BLANDE SALTED AND E E E QUAKE FRIEND There lived in a certain neighborhood not far distant from here, a rostering, rowdy bully, Jim Blander. Jim was "some'' in a fight, a kind of pugilistic Napoleon, ^an and bloody were the affairs he had in his lifetime, and had invariably come off best.— Jim not only considered himself invulnera ble, but all the fighting characters in the surrounding country conceded it was no useirate in fighting Jim, as he was considered to be a patent threshing machine, that could not be improved on. I Jim's neighborhood had settle quite a number of Quakers. From some cause or other, Jim hatGd "shad bel lies," as he called them, with h's entire heart and he often declared that to whip one of those inoffensive people would be the ciowning glory of his life. For years Jimijure waited for a pretext. One of Jim's chums overheard a young Quaker speak in dis paraging terms of him. The report soon came to Jim's ears and not a little maiini fied. Jim made desperate threats of what he was going to do with Nathan, the meek follower of Penn, on si ht besides various bruises and contusions he meant to iniliet on Nathan.s body, in his chaste language he meant to RED WING, GOODHUE COUNTY.

Nathan heard Jim's threats, and very properly kept out of his way, hoping that time would modify him Jim's anger. It seems however that much to be desired re suit did not take place. One day friend Nathan was out riding, and in passing through a long lane, when about midway, he espied -Jim entering the other end. Nayou. than might have turned and lied, but his flesh rebelled at this proceeding. 1 will pursue my way peaceably, said the Quaker, and I hope the better sense of th3 man oj! wrath will not permit him to molest me, or allow him to do violence to my person.— Nathan's calculations as to the lumb like qaalitied ol his adversary were doomed lol be disappointed, Oh ho, thought bully, as he recr Nathan, I have him at last, Now 1 W make mince meat ol shad belly. I will salt and pickie him to. Wilt t. ou please dismount fiom thy horse seizing the bridle ol Nathan's horse land mimicking his style my soul yearn jeth above all things to give thee the bigge.it mauling ever man received, Friend James, replied Nathan, '.Lou must jnot molest me, but let me go on my way in peace. Th better judgement will surely tell the that thou caust not possibly be ben efitted by personally injuring me. minding your own you run in slandering said Nathan firmly loosen thy hold from the bridle. You won't, won't you said Jim, then v7n4Uti|bere goes, aod he made a desperate plunge to collar the Quaker. Nathan was on his feet in an instant, on I the opposite side of the horse. The Quaker 1ML I I though of much smaller proportions than his persecutor, was all sinew and muscle, and his well knit form denoted both activi ty and strength. His wrath was evidently kindled. Friend James, he implored, thy pertina cious persistence in persecuting me is an noying thou must desist, or peradventure I may so forget myself as to do thee some match. a 3 0 to knock cfl* the end of your nose look oat! er coald not more scientifically nave ward ajsd CANARY SERD for aa!« by evidently disconcerted at the ill *riB *****m HARLAN a of a cautiously. The contest began again. N a than stood his ground firmly, and warded off the shower of blows skillfully, which Jim aimed at him. Friend James, said Nathan in the heat of the contest, this is mere childs play. I grieves me that thou has forced me into resistance, but I must defend myself from bodily harm, I see there is but one way of bringing this scandalous and wicked affair to a close and that is by conquering thee in order to do this I will inflict a heavy blow between thine eyes, whicli will pros thee. Following out the suggestion, Mathan struck Jim a tremendous blow on his forehead, which brought him to the ground. ^osr said Nathan, I will teach thee a les son, and I lmpe it will be a wholesome lesson too. I will seat myself astride of thy bieast I will place my knees upon tliy arms, thus\ so that thou canst not in me when thou returnest to conscious ness. I hope I may be the humblo instru ment of taming thy fierce, warlike nature, and make a better and more respectable man of the. A.s the Quaker concluded, Jim began to show signs of returning life* The fi'st im pulse of Jim, when he fairly saw his condi tion was to turn Nathan off. He struggled desperately, but he was in a vice—his ef forts were unavailing. Friend, thou must keep still until I jdone with thee, said Nathan, I believs I am humble instrument in the hands of God to chastise thee, and I trust that when I am done with thee thou wilt bo a changed man. Frierd James es thee not repent of at tacking me No*aid Jame?, let me up and I'll show 1 will not let thee up. impious wretch, darest thou profane the name of thy Maker?

I am not done with thee yet, said Na than. Thou hast been a disturber of the peace of this neigborhood time out of memory thy hand has been raised against every man thou art a brawler. Wilt thou promise me that in future thou wilt love thy neighbor as thyself? Yes, answered Jim hesitatingly, all but the Quakers. Thou must make no exceptions, replied Nathan.

Jim was sl«w in recovering his speech and his senses: whon he did he begged Nathan for mercy's sake to release him. aminto a a tremor ran through his frame. He was evidently un Jdergoing a process of strangulation. The iQuaker relaxed his hold, but till the chok •ing process h*.d sufficientl.v, as ho thought, tamed the preverse spirit of Jim. I took some moments for James to inhale suffcient air to address the Quaker. I'll knock under, said Jim, enough let me up. No, thou hast not got half enough, re plied Nathan. Thou art now undergoing aprocess of moral purification, and thou must be contented to remain where thou liest un I til I am done with thee. Thou haot just When thou wilt make the promise I ex -tion act from thee but no sooner, repliedjNathan. Jim saw that he was powerless, and that the Quaker was iesolutie. He felt it was no use to persist in his stubborness. I will give in, he replied, I will promise to love my neighbor as myself. Including the Quakers, insinuated Na than. Yes including the Quakers, replied I'm. Thou mayest arise then, friend James, and 1 trust the lesson thou hast learned to day will make a more peaceably citizen of thee, and I hope a better man. Poor Jim was completely humbled he left the field with his spirit3 completely cowed. Not long after this occurrence the story became bruited about. This was Ths last I heard of him he was preparing to make another move, Being pressed for his reason why ho again emigrated, said that a colony of Quakers were about moving his neighborhood. He was under an obligation to lovo them, but he was of thof opinion that distance would lend strength ltd his attachment. jority of our people here have left most mora than Jim could bear.

The other day a Yankee shell exploded just around the corner from house tearing a building to pieces aud setting two others on fire, N one was injured as all the building were va cated some weeks ago. I don't believe there are two hundred ladies in town who are able to get away, for Fred declared we should not leave while we had a roof over us, but now that he sees the danger we are in, he is glad to hurry us off. Most of the families have gone to Dor chester, Suminervilie, Icombo and water boro, and every house in those places is crowded nearly every rrom is filled with beds and every bed has to accommodate three or four persons.
