pathos thai relieves a whole column of
sarcasm. In the iust Leader he says,
regarding political discord at such limes
as these: ' "Look with m? along that
hillside yonder, where the gentle sun
casts her lenderest beams upon the new
spring yrass. You see there are irreg
ular mounds; scattered al! the way up
the slope hundreds hundreds !
r.eath them sleep the brave, the w-. pt

twilight ocean cf eternity, has washed
a pollution from our lhg: a blot from

so borne 'hence upon its purifying cur

' Atuly Jolmson's Pluck.
The New York torrespondent of the
Boston JovrneH gives the following an
eTdot' illustrating iha pluck' tf Presi
dent Johnson :
The day before the execution of the
assassins, a company of gentlemen
were at the. Astor House, most of whom
agreed rial Mrs. Surrait would not be
executed, some assigning the reason
that lhe President would not have pluck
enough to brave purrMe sentiment and
allow a woman lo be hung. A well
known merchant of New York who
was prestn coolly remarked, ''A man
who talks about Andy Johnson's want
of pluck evidently. don't know the man.
If Andy Johnson has signed the death
warrant cf Mrs. Surrati, the will die.
If he had intended to reprieve her, he
wouid not have signed it." He added,
"Let me tell you what I know. I was
shut up iu Nashville when the city was
surrounded .by 20,000 rebel troops, who
demanded its surrender. Gen. Uuell
was iu the city in command of 10,000
men. He determined on the surren
der of the city to the rebel forces.
He came to Gov. Johnson -and an
nounced to him that he could not de
fend tho ci;y, and that Nashville must
be surrendered. The Governor heard
him quietiy through, and then replied,
"Y'ou are iu command of the United
States troops, and can do as you will
w ii ii these. But two of the regiments
belong to the State of .Tenneaset'.';
Over those I have roGtrcT,"' Iu toe cerv
tre'of the city is a powder magazine.
I have trenches dug connecting the
magazine with every prominent build
ing in Nashville, and the trains are
laid. Now you march out with , your
iroopst I'll defend the ciiy.'as, long as
I can with my two regiments. When
1 can doni ruort, I vilb, fice the city
and blow ii to .tue.heavens, for by
Nashville shall never be - surrendered
hdo I am alive." Buell did not
march out, and Nashville was not sur
rendered. ' "What I tell you, ' said the
merchant, "I heard. But . the ' moral
grandeur and heroism of those utter
ances cannot be told. And that," qui
etly remarked the merchant, "is ,Audy
Johnson, and so all will find him , who
have to do with him."
; r2fA few days:since, a well dress
ed gentleman stopped al the "AVeddell
House, Cleveland. After,, depositing
$2,000 in the safe he proceeded to im
bibe several times, Getting boozy, he
addressed severel ofthe guesj, .otcv

r-fThe armies of the United Slates
during the last y -ar of the war, were
i.uniericuily much larger than the pop
ular estimate of them. At the recent
festivities of Yale College, in honor of
the students and graduates of that insti
tution who had seen active service du
ring the war, Gen. Parsons, of Sawit
Louis, who was fresh from an inter
view with Secretary Stanton, stated that
7SJ,G12 men had then been.discharged
and sent home, and that another 100,
000 would bu tent home iu a few days.
He further stated that, at the time Lee
surrendered, ther1 were in the service
within two or three thousand of around
mi.lion of men.

and moJe.sly of the chivalry, we give
the following : A gentleman in Wash

cf the release from prison cf his rebe

oath of allegiance; apprised the F. F.
V. mo.her of the youth of his success;
in reply to which he received from the
grateful lady a note, in which sha said:
'I think it the least you could do for
your brother's child togti him paroled

Brigadier, who made a visit to the Asy

he sent his band over the same evening
to serenade the inmates. The fact
becoming known, he was importuned to
invite thr inmates of the Biiud Asylum
to see his next parade.

Takk any Shape but TuAT.-When
democrats are inveighing, against the
proposition to allow the negroes the bal
lot, it does not sound well for them to
talk about the "ignorance" of the poor
freedmen. How many thousands and
tens of thousands of the simon pure dem
ocrats are there who Afcniiot feau ana will
i uot'Tenrn to read. Thousands of freed-
ren can read, and make good use of their
knowledge, while in some of the Planting
States there exists penal statates against
allowing them to be taught to read. There
is a solid excuse for the ignoranco of tho
negroes, but there is very little to be said
for the white men of this country who
cannot read and write. S-iv anything you
pleas, gentlemen democrats, about ne
gro suffrage, but don't talk about the "ig
norant naers" it doesn't sound well.

What ue Found- Colonel Grace, of
Arkansas, who voted to take that State
out cf the Union, in a recent speech at
Memphis, stated that he ascertianed a
fact which he and the other rebels who
were associated with him have also learn
ed and will remember as long as they live.
He said: "Before this war I never saw a
Federal officer, hardly. I never felt the
slightest oppression of the Federal Gov
ernment; in fact, I never thought wo had
one anril we went out to fight; then I
found we did have a Government."
C7"A Dubuque paper relates the case
of a man in Iowa who was fatally bitten
by a decapitated rattls-snake that is, by
the head of the snake, after it was sever
ed from the body. There is another ven

the utmost watchfulness ia observed.
Tlie Labor Question.
If every man in the United States
would pay a fair day's labor, all the dif
ficulties growing out of the war and the
effortB of tho reorganizati6n of the late
lv rebellious States would vanish in a
month. Every discontented laboring
man in tho South would go quietly to bis
tasks, popular disturbancs would cease,
and plenty and abundance would reign
once more throughout tho land. Tue
question of the wages of labor lies at the
veiy fourdat:on of American society and
American politics; and until it is every
where adjusted on a fair and equitable
basis so much money for so much toil
we may in vain hopa for a perfect peace.
We call the attention of all Northern me
chanics and laboring men to the fact,
that tho effort of the class of people to
compel other people to work for them
for little or nothg is the cause of all
tho disturbance tnat we have to fear.

A Fair Hit. Tho San Franciso Spec
tator gets aff the following on its neighbor
the Examiner, edited by B. F. Washing
ton: "Names of the newspapers are some
times very expressive, and often times
contain more than is found in their edi
torial columns, thus showing the effect of
a good name. The Picayune, named af
ter the price at which it was afforded; the
(iaze!e the same; but these are old styl?.
The new and popular idea is to commera
orate some recent scene in our own his
tory. Thus, when the Confedracy was
captured, it attempted to escape iif dis
guise, and would have do no so. but for
the factjJthat..ca the" Confederacy's
mother wished to go to the spring for
water, an iixpudent roll of army blue
cloth concluded to Examin'er.
' The Human Etk. The language of the
eye is very hard to counterfeit. You can
read in the "eyes ' of youf coiiipanionj
while yon talkj whether your argument
hits him, though his tongue will not con
fess it. There is a look by which a tnan
6howa he is a going to say a good thing
and a look when he has said it. Vain and
forgotten are all tho liqe offloea of hospi
tality, if there be no hollidayin the eye.
How many furtive invitations are avowed
by the eye, though dissembled by the lips.
A man comes uway from a company, 'ha
has heard Bo important remark, bat, if
in sympathy with the society, he is cog
nizant of such a stream of life as has
been passing to him through the eye.
There are eyes which give no more ad
mission into them than blue berries; oth
ers are liquid, and deep wells that a man
might fall into: and others are oppress
ive and devouring, and take tyo much
notice.' There are asking and asserting
eyes, eyes full of faith some of good
and some of sinister omen.
