A rllANKSUIYI.VG STORY.
So one should be mean enough
to
ask if this is a true story. All stories
are true stories, and it isn't likely that
any one would lie about what happened
on such a good day as Thanksgiving.
TO BEGIN WITH,
The widow Du Shay lived in a little cot-
lagoon the ground nowoccupicd by the
- -
House of Correction. The facts in this
story occurred many years ago, but they
were salted down at the timo and arc
now taken from the barrel in splendid
condition.
Thanksgiving day had arrived. The
Governor of Michigan had issued a
proclamation as long as a hoe-handle,
the turkey-gobblers had been gobbled
from market and grocery, and every
body was ready for a short .sermon and
a long dinner. That's how things were,
and a war map would not give the read
er any clearer idea of the situation.
IlETKOSrECTIVK.
Tho widow pat down In her rocking- chair.
And Kite drew up nearer the stove:
And the north wind blow with an awful
"whew,"
And the snow Hakes came down in n drove.
"He thankful for what?" mused Mrs. Du
Sl-ny,
' I'm u widow, rheumatic and poor;
And 'twouldn' be iuecr. If before tho New
Year,
I was bcKxing from door to door."
She wlpod a tear from her sparkling nose
And t-lie thought of Du Hiiiy in his k'ntvo
And her children three, who wcro drowned
at nea.
Under the foam-crest wave.
NOTICE TO THE AUDIENCE.
The public will please keep their seats
ns tho performance is not yet half
through.
I've worked like a fclave," tho widow went
on,
" I've toiled lolh early and late,
I've lessened my food that I might get wood.
And my conduct bits ever been straight.
uMr husband is dead my children arc gone,
My hou-o needs many rcpairo;
home white man or nig h:ts stolen my pig,
And my head It Is getting gray halis."
SAME ONE.
Every adult person has read of the
poor widow who was compelled to make
shirts for six cents a piece and furnish
the buttons and thread. This is the one.
" I've nothing to eat but cold pancakes.
And a sip of three-shilling tea."
And the widowshc wept, while thesnowllakes
crept
Under the door for to see.
' I've nothing to wear but an ll black dress.
My liounet Is teven years old:
And to add to my woes niy best pair of
shoo
For n shilling couldn't be sold.
' 3 hankf giving! The day is nothing tome
1 wish I was under the ground
I wi-h I wils dead, and this s.irmwful head
A rest in a rollin had found."
rEKFECTLV NATUKAL.
You would have wished the same had
you b?en in the widows place. Thanks
giving is a big thing with fowl, and
oysters, and cranberry-sauce to back it;
lnt when you come down to three old
chairs and two old pancakes, it's anoth
er matter.
And t he widow sho wept and rocked away,
And the wind continued to blow.
While the uindow-pane it shivered again
At the touch of the Hakes of snow.
A CHANGE.
Human nature is licklc. If it wasn't
there would bo no brea-di-of-promise
suits or divorces. The widow Du Shay
finally concluded that cold pancake was
Letter than nothing, and that her old
house was superior to a coal shed for
comfort. She decided to observe tho
day as well as possible. She was warm
ing her feet in the oven preparatory to
skirting for church, when she fell
asleep.
She fell asleep, and sho sighed and snored,
Itut never a pain did she feci.
As the room grew balm and tho oven got
w arm
And almost blistered her heel.
And she didn't dream of the better land,
Where widows have raiment of gold
She heaved not a slab tor entice and pie,
And tlauuels to keep out the cold.
THE KEASON WHY
she didn't was on account of tho sur
roundings. It's no trick at all for a
rich widow to dream of Heaven and
angels and second husbands and weeks
of bliss, but a poor lone widow with her
feet in tho oven is a different story.
However,
The widow T)u Phay she opened her eyes
On sights she could hardly believe
There was wood at the door some ten cords
or more.
As she could quite plainly perceive.
A barrel of pork a whole chest of tea,
In the shed with a barrel of Hour;
And it bonnet was there, with n dress of mo
hair. Selected from somo fairy bower.
A pair of new shoes (she wore No. five's),
bhawl, stockings and other dry goods.
In fact, such a store as she ne'er w before
Since tho day sho moved out of the woods.
OF COURSE,
Her amazement was intense, and it was
half an hour before she could fully real
ize that Providence had thus rewarded
her for her resolution to keep Thanks
giving day, and be thankful for what
sho had. Just as she had finished in
specting the last article
A gallant knock was knocked on the door,
And responsive to her "come in."
In walked a gent, as slick as a cent,
Or as neat as any new pin.
He smiled a sweet smile as he took a chair.
And bis clothes were tltting and lino:
And this he did sav to the widow Du Shay:
"Oh, widow, will you bo mine"
Sho blushed a bit, and she hung her head.
And her hand ho took inhis'n:
And he stoic a kiss, which she didn't miss.
And but it's none o your bizzen.
They were married that eve by a parson tall.
And the storm cleared away very soon:
And they rode for an hour on n bridal tour,
in a sieign oy me ngni oi mo moon.
THAT'S ALL.
But this article should make a deep
impression on you.
Whenever you feel like saying hard
things of Thanksgiving because '..you
have nothing to be thankful for just re
member what a narrow escape the
widow Du Shay had from falling upon
the stove in her sleep and increasing
her misfortunes by roasting her hose.
She happened to come out A 1, but

A Nebraska Snow Storm.

Tiicro was but little ?lecp in the tent
that night, for tho cold was intense, and
the wind was so terrible in its effects
that we feared every moment the larger
tent would fall, though we had .strength
ened it by poles and cords in every con
ceivable way. With the morning light
it seemed a if all the spirits of tLe air
where let Ioojo, and all day long the
storm roared with ever-increasing fun.
The snow had ao beaten in that when
we awoke we found ourselves buried
beneath it, and now we were obliged to
gather all our bedding into the middle
of the tent to keep it from being wet
through. No man could long endure
tho storm outside, and we stood hud

tho great weight of the snow and the
territic force of the gale. I know of no
language which can be used to convey
to any person inexperienced in such a
time any adequate conception of the
fury of the storm.
During the second day we succeeded
in digging our little stove out of the
snow dritt, and setting it up at the
entrance to our tent wo managed
to keen a little lire through tho rest of
the day and night. But our store of
wood was vory small, and there was no
more to be had Within we knew not
how many miles. The other tent's
company 'had no stove and no lire.
During the second night of the .storm it
was impossible that all should sleep at
once, even if they could sleep despite
the cold, for what with the fetove on
one side and all our provisions, brought
in from the wagons, on the other, there
was not room for all to lie down. Be
sides it was necessary to keep the lire
going, lest we might all perish together.
So we stood bending over the st ve all
night, two at a time, while the others
tried to sleep. It was an awful night.
To add to our anxiety the guide and
drivers declared that the horses and
mules were likely to perish. They
were a pitiful sight, indeed. Two of
thdm had no blankets, and the others
wore little better off. At times it was
difficult to conceive that the creatures
before us were hor.-es, so literally cov
ered were they witu a coating of ice.
After two days and two nights the storm
ceased.
It was now Sunday morning. We

Others declared their purpose to move

away all luggage that could be dis

m the direction which we thought would
bring us to the nearest hut. It was dif

snow, and it was bitterly cold. But all

Workmen's liiots In Russia.
A Russian papor gives the following
account of tho recent great strike at
Smolensk: " On the 2 1st of September
the manager of Khludoirs Cotton Mill,
where three thousand workmen are em
ployed, issued a notice that on the 1st
of October wages would bo reduced ten
per cent. The weavers thereupon
struck work and collected in a mob to
discuss their grievances outside the mill.
Cossack police inspectors endeavored
to make them disperse, but were com
pelled to retire, followed by a shower
of stones. The workmen then marched
through the 6treets of Smolensk,
smashing indiscriminately the windows
of tho houses en route, hooting the
Jewish Synagogue, and compelling the
public house keepers to servo them
with spirits gratis. In the evening,
when the Governor sent one of his suite
to the scene, lie was roughly handled
by the mob and had to retreat, severely
wounded in the head by a heavy stone.
The next day the Governor arrived,
and, with Khludoff, held a conference
with the workpeople, resulting in tho
withdrawal of tho obnoxious order re
specting the decrease of wages. Tho
Governor then returned to the railway
station, but had hardly reached the
platform when a Cossack came after
him with tho intelligence of a fresh out
break. It seemed that the weavers
were about to re-enter the mill to work
when a body of refractory workmen
placed themselves before the doors and
drove them back. The Governor there
upon summoned three companies of in
fautry to occupv the mill ami prevent
disturbances. Tho next day, affairs
being still in an undecided condition,
no weavers entered the mill. The day
passed off quietly, and in the evening
Khludofl" announced that, as they had
not accepted his offer yesterday, ho
should, in punishment, withdraw it aud
confirm the October order. On tho
24th the machinery was started in the
morning, and a few of tho weavers re
turned to work. On the 25th about
"one third were reported to be back at
their work, the greater number of the
remaining two-thirds having demanded
their discharge. Seven men have been
arrested for rioting, and the strike is
now considered to be at an end."
Agriculture: ia the Limekiln Club.
The Committee on Agriculture re
ported that their midsummer estimate
of crops had been more than realized
except in the case of buckwheat, which
is always a deceiving crop to estimate
on. There was no special cause to
thank Providence for the big crops, for
it was just as easy for her to turn out
big crops as little ones. She wasn't a
cent out of pocket either way. The
committee recommended that the Club
offer a premium to any person who will
invent a flat-boat with a plow attachedT
so that farmers may not be delayed by
wet weatherl Also, that farmers pay
more attention to natural history. The
committee had conversed with a score
of farmers not one of whom could ex-

too tired to tackle the "wood-pile for
fifteen minutes could walk two miles

estimated that 8.650 mowers and reap
ers, 25,000 scythes, 58,000 plows. 6,000
scrapers, 91,800 hay-rakes and 22,000
cultivators would be left in the fields to

No LAiv can manage her houchoM
affairs with dicretJO.i, or comfort to
herself, without uuch knowledge of
business a wi.l enable her to kinjp all
her accounts correctly. In buying or
selling she will soon learn the import
ance of "making change" with facuitv,
aud yet with perfect correctness and
never receiving it from other without
a careful yet not oatcntatious examina
tion. We havo heard lad cs ay they
would be ashamed to stop and count
their "change" after receiving it. It
would look like suspecting those with
whom they were dealing of dishonesty.
A very foolish idea, which may often
occasion serious lo or painful misun
derstanding in case it is afterward
found incorrect.
Ladies should also be competent to
discriminate between true and false
coin to detect a counterfeit bill, if not
with tho quickness of an expert, at
lean so far m to be on their guard
against receiving bills at all doubtful
until submitted to home one whose
judgment Is trustworthy. Mothers
ought to be able to teach their daughters
the steps necessary to the proper trans
action of such business a naturally
comes tinder a housekeeper's care. It
is a very convenient as well as a most
desirable plan to have such an amount
a one can afford to use in household
affairs deposited in bank for the use of
the mistress of a family. It will give
her a delinite idea of how much she can
safely spend, and she will take pride in
not only keeping within bounds, but
also in seeing how much sho can save
out of the allotted sum without being
miserly, or reducing the comfort") of the
iamily. In short, we believe, whenever
possible, tho husband should alw.iys
give his wife a stated allowance for fam
ily expenses ami a separate one for her
own individual needs. It is the greatest
safeguard against extravagance, either
through sellish carelessness or ignor
ance. If such an arrangement can be made,
then the wife and mistress of a family
should have a bank account for herown
use. and for the necessities of the fami
ly. In that case every lady must un
deratand how to make out a check cor
rectly, aud also understand definitely
the difference between a check and a
draft, and that both, when drawn, must
be presented during business hours, if
they are to be cashed at the bank. A
check is drawn on a bank where money
has been deposited sufficient, at least,
to cover the amount drawn. A draft or
letter of credit can be drawn on a bank
or business house where the drawee has
such business connections or transac
tions as will make the acceptance of the
draft safe aud justifiable. Tho differ
ence between tho two is slight moitly
in the wording; but of .sufficient im
portance to make .a correct understand
ing of that difference very desirable, if
not absolutely necessary. Many arc
careless in dating letters; perhaps la
dies are less careful than gentlemen.
In common family or friendly corre
spondence it may not be of much im
portance, though often a source of em
barrassment and uncertainty, that
brings discomfort, to say the least. But
in business transactions, if the date and
year are omitted, it may prove a source
oi great mischief. If a check or draft
is sent without date, it will, or should
be, returned for the omission to be sup
plied, and in business such delav may
prove disastrous by causing distress or
loss to both parties.
The mistress of a house should know,
not only ho.v to select tho best as well
as the most economical articles, accord
ing to the state of her finances, but also
ki3p well posted in the current market
prices. By so doing, giving carcftd at
tention to the rise and fall of prices,
she cau obtain the best, with less ex
pense than would be incurred for sec
ond or third-class provision if she does
not possess this knowledge. If, on the
contrary, a housekeeper simply con
sults her own case and present conven
iencemaking her purchases in places
near of access, or trusts to the dealer to
send what he chooses without examin
ing the quality as well as the price her
felf she will surety not only incur
needless expense nut very unsatisfactory
provisions.
The same mistaken idea which ladies
are often governed by in couuting
change is too common, unfortunately,
in marketing and making any house
hold purchases namely, that to exam
ine material and compare prices, as
well as quality, will leave tho impres
sion of being sordid and miserly, or in
very straitened circumstances. For the
last there need be no shame. The first
is mean and contemptible, and opens a
large Held for reformation and improve
ment. But there is an honor in hold
ing one's stewardship with scrupulous
care and exactness, using tho good
things which God commits to our care
"as not abusing them."
Of course all with whom the mistress
of a family deals are to bo supposed
honest until proved the contrary, and
would on no account Like advantage of
a woman in a bargain. But the honor
of securing the patronage of a lady of
distinction, especially if that distinction
is gilded, or the pleasure of waiting on
a bright, active young matron, just
blushing under the dignity of being the
honored mistress of her husband's
house, may beguile them into a little
exaggeration in presenting their wares.
This will seldom be repeated if they see
that their attractive customers perfectly
understand what they are seeking, and
intend to use the privilege of forming
their own judgment by carefully examin
ing other establishments before, making
their purchases. A woman who under
stands business sufficiently to protect
herself from making ill-advised bar
gains has also the double advantage of
giving no temptation to those with
whom she deals to exaggerate or mis
represent while at the same time her
knowledge shields herself from mistakes
and imposition. Afrs. II. W. Bcccher,

m
Some Old-Fashloncil Punishments.
From the many references to the
ducking-stool in the ancient records of
many boroughs, we have ample proof
that "at an earlier period this curious
mode of punishment was the common
instrument of justice for scolds and
incorrigible women apractice, indeed,
which continued till within the last
century. One of the last cases on
reconlin which it was resorted to is
recorded in the London Evening Post
of April 27, 1745, where we read: "Last
week a woman that keeps tho Queen's
Head Ale-house at Kingston, in Surrey,
was ordered by the Court to be ducked
for scolding, and was accordingly
placed in the chair, and ducked in the
river Thames, under Kingston bridge,
in the presence of two or three thousand
Eeople." That this cold-water cure
ad a wholesome effect upon unruly
women is agreed by most of the old
writers who mention it. Dr. Johnson,
in a conversation with Mrs. Knowles,
said: "Madam, we have different modes
of restraining evil stocks for the men,
a ducking stool for the women, and a
a pound for beasts.1' And Gay, in his
"Pastorals," is very decisive on this
point:
I'll speed me to the pond, where tho high
s:ool
On the long plank hangs o'er the muddy
pool:
Thar stool, tho dread of every scolding
quean.
The popularity, too, of the punish
ment is further shown by the fact that
corporate bodies were required to fur
nish themselves with a ducking-stool,
just a? they, are now forced to provide
and maintain fire-engines. Thus, in
the'parish accounts of Mortlake, 3 7
shillings appears to have been paid in
I6G2 "for erecting and painting a duck-tng-stool
for scolds;'.' and among the
Corporation Records of hmwjbtirj.
16fy. we read of "aducking-5Uol to bo
erected for the punixhuwnt of all
scold." Various perinicn of thec in-
; trumcnt of correction ace still In ex-

which w formerly neti ia Iiiccster.
' i.i still preserved in the Town Mueam
there. The term cucking-tool i
sometimes applied to the ducking-stool
the resemblance of the names having
apparently led to an idea that they
me int the same thing. A learnnl writ
er on the subject, however, has pointed
out that the cucking-stool was specially
ucd for the expoure of llagitiom
women "at their own doots or in ome
other public place, ns a means of pttt-
) ting upon them the la.it degree of igno
miny." In the year 1157 we are told
of a scold who was put ujkjii the "cuck
?tool" at Leicester, before her own
j door, and then carried to the four gates
of the town; and Itlomctield in hb
History of Norfolk" tells us of one
Margaret Grove, a common scold, who
in the year 1597 was ordered to be car
ried, with a basin " rung before her, to
' the cucke-stool at Fye Bridge, and then
to be three times ducked." Again, in
days gone b3 the "ducking pond '
was a common adjunct to any place
where a number of habitations were
collected together, and was in general
u-e for the summary punishment of pot
ty offenders of various descriptions.
The ducking-pond for tho western part
of London occupied the 5-ite of part of
Trafalgar Square, and was very cele
brated in the annals ot the l-omion mob.
Another mode of punishment, which
was formerly carried to a cruel extent.
' was the whipping of vagrants and thotu
' guilty of slight offenses. By an act
I passed in 22 Henry VI 1 1., beggars found
, wandering about seeking their subiNt-
ence from the alms of the benevolent
were to bo "carried to some market
town or other place, and there tied to
the end of a cart naked, and beaten
with whips throughout such market
town or other place till the body should
bo bloodv by reason of Mich whipping."
In the thirty-ninth year of Kiizabeth,
however, this act was slightly miti
J gated, and " vagrants were only to bo
stripped naked from the middle up
ward, and whipped till the body should
. be bloody." Kntries in somoot our old
church registers remain as witnesses of
the operation of this law. About tho
year 1596 whipping-posts came into
use, and at the time the writings of
John Taylor, "the water poet," were
published, they appear to have been
very plentiful, for he narrates how
In London, and within a mile, I ween.
There are or Jails or prisms lull eivhteen,
Aud sixty whlppliiK-iMtsts, and stocks and
caves.
It is also on record that on May 5,
171U. the corporation of Doncaster gave
orders for a whipping post to be set up
at the stocks at Butcher Cross for pun
ishing vagrants and sturtly beggars.
Then, too, there were the parish tock.s,
which were either put elose to the
churchyard or in more solitary places.
This was an arrangement for exposing
a culprit on a bench, confined by liav-
I ing his ankles made fast in holes under
a movable board. In many country
places these may still be seen, although
1 frequently little more than a stump of
them is left. Even women were pun
ished in this way; and, as an illustra
tion, we may quote the subjoined ex
tract from the parish register of Croft,
Yorkshire: "Jane Buttrey. of Darling
ton, was sect in the 'sto.xe' at Crofte,
and was whipto out of the towne the :l
tday of Jan., 1672." The whipping of
female vagranLs, however, was abol
ished by statute so recent 1 as the year
1791.
Among other modes of punishment
formerly in use may be mentioned the
brink, or scold's bridle, of which one of
the earliest notices is that preserved iu
i the church of Waltou-on-Thames. Sur
rey, dated 16:5:1, to which is affixed the
1 followiug rhyme:
Chester presents Walton with a bridle
To curb women's toiiKUi-s that talk so Idle.
According to tradition this instrument

the indiscreet language of a mischiev

apparatus was made, says a correspond-,
cnt of Chambers' " Book of Days," of
thin iron, and bo contrived as 'to pass
over and round the head, where the
whole clasped together and was fasten
ed at the back of the neck by a small
padlock. Tho bridle-bit, as it was
called, was a small piece of iron, about
two inches long ami one inch broad,
which went into the mouth and kept
down the tongue by its pressure; while
an aperture in front admitted the nose.
Various specimens are still t ) be seen
here and there in local museums, it
was much in request in Scotland, aud
is mentioned bv Pennant in his "Tour
in Scotland" in 1772. In St. Mary's
Church, St. Andrews, a famous speci
men still exists, known as the " Bishop's
Brank," of which a representation is
given in tho Abbotsford edition of the
"Monastery." In the time of the
Commonwealth the Magistrates of
New:vtlc-upon-Tync punished drunk
ards by making them carry a tub, with
holes in the sides for the arms to pass
through, along the streets of that town
a punishment popularly called tho
" drunkard's cloak." I must not omit
to mention tho "pillory," that igno
minious and barbarous means of pun
ishment which was finally done away
with only in 1837. In early times in
England it was the punishment most
generally inflicted upon cheats, thieves,
scandal-mongers and such-like culprits;
but later on it figured conspicuously in
political disputes. A pillory is said
still to be standing at tho back of the
market place of Coleshill, in Warwick
shire; and another is reported to lio
with the town engine in an unused
chancel of Rye Church, in Sussex. The
" pilliwinkles" was a mode of torture
formerly used in Scotland for suspected
witches; and that horrible practice of
"pressing to death" was in force within
the last two centuries. According to
Norwich SKctator this cruel sentence
was parsed on a man accused of high
way robbery at the Old Bailey in the
year 1720, and there may have been
still later examples. Stamcs Gazette.

That Horrid Hat.
A young wife recently went shop
ping, and among other things she
bought a new hat a Derby, tho first
of the kind she had ever worn. She
stood at the counter with the hat on,
when her sister came in, looked at it
very hard, and said to a friend. " How
much that lady looks like my sister!"
It required a personal explanation to
convince her that she was her sister.
On the train she spied her husband,
who was buried in an evening paper.
He glanced at her and returned to 'lis
news. She sat near him, and af-er a
while said, "Charley." He looked up.
grinned, looked a little undecided, and
again returned to his paper. When the
train stopped she went up behind him
and said, "Charley." Bnt he, the
food boy, didn't even look around,
'hen she touched his arm, and said in
despair: "Charley, don't you know
me? What is the matter?" At this he
stopped, gazed at her steadily, and
said: "I beg your What! Oh, the
deuce! Come, now! Is that yon, Min
nie? Whv, what's come over you?"
"I suppose it's this horrid, horrid hat.
rU take it off the minute I get home
and never wear it again. Didn't yon
really know me, dear?"' Of course
not. I thought it was that girl across
the -street trying to scrape acquaintance
with me."

Anecdotes of Stonewall Jackson.
As is well known, Jackson w;ls care
less iu dtess, in gait, and when astride
a horse he was just as apt to have his
No. 9s dangling out of the stirrups as
in them. A thoughtful man, with ob
long features, kindly gray eyes, somber
in looks, with a mind never at rest, ho
appeared often in what may not inap
propriately be termed "fits of abstrac
tion," and apparently oblivious to every
thing passing around him. but at the
whistle of a minie ball, or the boom of
a cannon, how his whole face lit up
with expectancy. He was suddenly
alive to "coming events." Of Jack
son's rigid discipline I will here put on
record an instance. While a boy I was
coming out of tho post-office in Lexing
ton, Va.. one morning, and, as I came
out, a youth of some seventeen sum
mers passed in, clad in a black suit.
I stopped for a minute on the pave
ment at the post-office door, with my
face toward the Virginia Military Insti
tute, of which Jackson was then a pro
fessor. Jackson was coming up tho
street at the time, and only a few yards
from tho door. The cadet was in citi
zen's dross, and had "run the block
ade" to get a letter from "his girl,"
and had thus violated two rules como
to town in citizen's dress, and without
leave. He was coming out, uncon
sciously, into the "snare of the fowler;"
but ho chanced to spy Jackson within a
few yards of the office, and instantly
sprang back, jumped over the counter.
Hew past the postmaster and leaped out
of the window, cat style, on "all fours."
Jackson took in "the situation" at a
glance, for, as the cat's heels were dis
appearing out of the back window,
Jackson's stern countenance darkened
the door, and he cried out in a stento
rian voice: "I recognize you, sir! Go
to the barracks and report yourself un
der arrest!" Many a mentor would have
been blind to the" escapade, would have
tried not to have seen his pupil, would
have "winked at it," but not so with
Jackson; on the contrary, he quickened
his pace and was an interested spectator
to the lively movements of his pupil's
heeli But ft has been a mystery to me
ever since, how in the world Jackspn
recognized that cadet by bis No. 7 boots
as his heels were disappearing out of
the window. When 1 saw Jackson
again he lay dead on the field of
Cnanccllorsville.
To show Jackson's listlcssncss on
important occasions, I will record
another incident. It is well known
that "Stonewall" was not a mere map
fighter, or attacked the enemy on
scientific principles. He made war as
Claiborne Mason made his (Jackson's)
bridges, by intuitive knowledge and
common sense principles- And when
many a General was planning a
battle on maps, Jackson nad fought
and won them by the celerity of
his movements. But to the point: On
a certain night, near the banks of the
Rappahanock. a council of war wa3 be
ing held, at which, as a matter of conrse.
General Robert . Lee presided. Jack
son was the last to enter the Commander-in-Chiefs
tent. He sat down, crossed
his lank legs, folded his arms, and was
lost in thought in a few minutes. The
subject t id manner of attack was elab
orately discussed in all its detail for
nearly an hour, on the maps and plan
of battle, and a conclusion nearly ar
rived at, when General Lee. wishing to
hear Jackson's opinion he had not
opened his mouth during the entire dis
cussion asked him for his views; but,
mirabile dictu! Jackson was sound
asleep, and, when roused up, his an
swer to Lee's question was (without so
much as opening his eyes): " Oh, run
them into the nverl" " His suggestion
was adopted, and a bold, stand-up at
tack was made, and the enemy was not
only "ran into the river," but clear
across it. American Queen.

Some Correction.
Thk campaign is over. The fight is
finished, and we embrace thi opportu
nity to make a few corrections. If any
thing we have said has led anybody to
believe that the Concord, Monitor man
is a wild-eyed, fiery and untamed ink
gpattercr and a man whom it wouldn't
be desirable to meet in a dark alley, we
hasten to state thaUiich is not the case.
He is a gentleman with whom it is per
fectly safe to play poker without insist
ing that he tie up his .sleeves. If. in an
unguarded moment, we have given any
body tho itnoression tbatthecommenta
torof the Philadelphia Acre Ls the port
of person who would like to set tire to
a barn and cremate a lot of homes and
cattle, the mistake must be laid to the
excitement caused by the heat of the
campaign. He is as gentle as a turtle
dove and an ardent admirer of Mr.
Itergh. If wc have spoken of the gal

kicking his feet out on both side, wc
wish to state that he got up there in
order to get a better view of the field.
If we have persuaded anybody that
they had better lock up their bens when

a genial and attractive cuss that the

we now state that the suspicion was

For instance. Fried and Sloody sat in
the same seat of a crowded coach on
the Bodie line. Moody surlily said that
Fried was taking more than a fair
share of the space, and, when Fried re
plied that he couldn't move any farther,
coolly shot him- " I never take anv
nonsense." he remarked, and Fried fell
dead from the seat. The driver got
down from the box and told the mar
derer to get oat. A defiant refusal aad
the flourish of a pistol was the answer.
The driver jumped upon the wheel,
seized Moody bv the collar, dragged
him ont through" a window and threw
him to th? ground so forcibly that his
arm was broken- The passeagers
helped to tie him with a rope, and he
was stowed away with the trnaks be
