An eye -witness reports that, as the preacher uttered these words with all the energy of frantic ap prehsion, tho blood gushed from his no.-tiiis. lie put his handkerchief to his face without knowing what he did, and, instantly resuming his gesture, he'd the bloody handker chief aloft, as if it were the symbol of the horrors he foretold.

One little blue-eyed darling, not yet four yet tear years obi, has a store of pennies which aro his "colleg money," and his eyes sparkle with pleasure as it increases, and he talks ubout the grand place where his big brother li , going soon, and v, here ho nn. ana to go sometime.

Braxton Bragg was inter viewed by a St. Louis reporter the other day, and expressed himself on the subject of Jeff, Davis, seces sion, the Government, &c. We quote a portion of the account, as follows : Ileporter I suppose yon favored secession ? General I did. 1 thought, and think now, that it was necessary for our lienor. Our institutions were being encroached upon in a manner that demanded action. I would have favored fighting under the old flag. We were maintaining the true Constitution, and not the other side they should have been called rebels, and not us. Reporter What are 3Tour feel ings now toward the Government"? General I have no Government. I am disfranchised; that is, I sup pose I am, as I have not inquired into the matter, i" take no interest in it. My property was confiscated and I had nothing left rue but my debts, and have bad to work for my living since the war. Ileporter Would you fight for the Government if called upon 1 General Were it a war exclu sively involving the nationality of the Government, 1 might. Jam strictly with my people of the South, and the circumstances would have to be extraordinary to induce me to serve under such a Government as now predominates. There would be but little inspiration to fight for a Government controlled by such men as Ben Butler and other such men now in office. Sir Walter Raleigh on Wine. Take special eare that you de light not in wine, for there never was any man that came to honor or preferment that loved it, for it tram-formeth a man into a beast, d?caycth health, poisoneth the breath, destroyeth natural heat, bringeth a man's stomach to an artificial burning, deformeth the face, rottcth the teeth, and to con clude, maketh a man contemptible, soon old, and despised of all wise and worthy men; hate it in thy servants, thyself and thy com panions, for it is a bewitching and infectious vice; and remember my words, that it were better for a man to be subject to any vice than to it; for all other vanities ana sins are recovered; but a drunkard will never shake off the delight of beastliness; for the longer it pos-te-?th a man the more he will deiight in it, and the older he grow eth the more he will be subject to it, for it dulietli tho spirits and destroyeth the body, as ivy doth the old tree, or a? the worm that tngendereth in the kernel of the nut. Tun Maine Ice Crop. The to tal yield of the ice crop in Maine for the present season, including old ice on hand, cannot be reckoned short of 1,500,000 tons, and it may possibly reach 2,000,000 tons. Cf this amount probably 300,000 have been sold or bargained for at 3 per ton, or a total of nearly $1, 000,000. 'ibis price is a remuner ative one, netting a large profit to owners, if the rest of the crop is sold at the same figure, the total amount realized from Maine's ice product will be between $4,000,000 I and 3,000,000. To transport this product to a market will require a fleet of not less than 5,000 vessels. To carry away the product of the Kennebec will require over 3,0u0 vessels, or an average of nearly fifteen vessels a day from opening of the river to navigation to its close.
