MRS. SMITH'S OPINIONS.
The other day I made a call,
As ladies sometimes do, '
To hear the news my friends eould tell,
And tell them what I knew.
And as we sat in social chat
O'er steaming cups of tea,
•'I don't know what we're coming to?"
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.
"They're making laws at such a rate,
It almost drives me wild ;
They do not care for God, I think,
For woman, man, or child.
They've forced the negroes in the cars
Along with you and me ;
And who knows where they'll force them next ?"
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.
" Their children are to go to school
Along with yours and mine,
And if we white folks should object,
Our rights we can resign.
All social lines must be removed
Because the blacks are free;
Such things are not to be endured,''
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.
"And not content with all these gifts,
Bestowed with lavish hand,
The negroes must be fed and clothed
Throughout the Southern land.
The taxes now are high enough,
But what they yet may be,
"Tis not in human power to guess,"
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.
THE BOOTH DIARY.
The diary found in posses ion of J.
Wilkes Booth after his capture, has at
last been made public. Stanton and
Holt certify that it is the same as when
it caine into their possession. The diary
is as follows:
"Ti Jmo," April 13, 14, Friday, the
Ides.—Until to-day nothing was ever
thought of sacrificing to our conntry's
wrongs. For six months we had work
ed to capture. But our cause being al
most lost, somethingdecisive and great
must be done. But its failure was ow
ing to others, who did not strike for
their country with a heart.
I struck boldly, and not as the papers
say. I walked with a firm step through
a thousand of his friends, and was stop
ped, but pushed in. A colonel was at
his side. I shouted "Sic Semper" be
fore I fired. In jumping broke my leg.
I passed all his pickets, rode sixty
miles that night with the bone of my
leg tearing the flesh at every jump. I
can never repent it, though we hated
to kill. Our country owed all her troub
les to him, and God made me the in
strument of his punishment.
The country is not, April, 1865, what
it was. Tins' forced union is not wnai
I have loved. I care not what becomes
of me; I have no desire to outlive my
country. Thisuight, "before the deed,"
I wrote a long article and left it for one
of the editors of the National Intelli
gencer, in which I fully set forth our
reasons forourproceedings. He, or the
Friday, 21st.—After being hunted
like a dog, through swamp-sand woods,
and last night being chased by gun boats
till I was forced to return wet, cold and
starving, with every man's hand a
gainst me, I am here in despair; and
why? For doing what iirutus was
honored for, what made Tell a hero;
and yet I, for striking down a greater
tyrant than they ever knew, am looked
upon as a common cut-throat. My ac
tion was purer than either of theirs.
One hoped to be great. The other had
not only his country's but his own
wrongs to avenge. 1 hoped for no
gain. I knew no private wrong. I
struck for my country, and that alone,
a country that groaned beneath this
tyranny, and prayed for this end, and
yet now behold the cold hand they ex
tend to me. God cannot pardon me if
I have done wrong. Yet I cannot see
my wrong except in serving nay degen
erate people. The little, the very lit
tle I leave behind to clear my name
the Government will not allow to be
printed—so ends all. For my country
I have given up all that makes life
sweet and holy, brought misery upon
my family, and am sure there is 110
pardon in the heaven for me, since man
condemns me so. I have only heard
of what has been done, except what I
did myself, and it fills me with horror.—
God, try and forgive me, and bless my
mother. To-night I will once more
try the river with the intent to cross,
though I have a greater desire and al
most a mind to return to Washington,
and in a measure, clear my name,
which 1 feel I can do. Ido not repent
the blow I struck; I may before my
God, but not to man. I think I. have
done well, though I am abandoned
with the curse of Cain upon me, when,
if the world knew my heart, that one
blow would make me great, though
Idi l desire no greatness. To-night I
try to esccpe these bloodhounds once
more. Who can read his fate? God's
will be done. I have too great a soul
to die like a criminal. Oh, may He
spare me that, and let me die bravely!
I bless the entire world have never
hated or wronged any one. This last
was not a wrong, unless God deems it
so, and it's with Him to damn or bless
me. And for this brave boy with me,
who often prays; yes, before and since,
with a true and sincere heart —was it
crime in him? If so, why can he pray
the same? 1 do not wish to shed a drop
of blood, but I must fight the course.
'Tis all that's left me.
Upon a piece of paper found in the
diary, and supposed to have been torn
from it, is written the following:
My dear, [piece torn out] forgive me,
but I have some little pride. I cannot
blame you for want of hospitality.
You know your own affairs. I was
sick, tired, with a broken limb, and in
need of medical advice. I would not
have turned a dog from my door in
such a plight. However, you were
kind enough to give me something to
eat, for which I not only thank you,
but on account of the rebuke and man
ner in which to—[Piece torn out.] It is
not the substance, but the way in
which kindness is extended that makes
me happy in the acceptance thereof.
The sauce is meat in ceremony ; meet
ing were bare without it. Be kind
enough to accept the enclosed five dol
lars—although hard to spare for what
we have received. Most respectfully,
your obedient servant.
ORBEI.Y ON TIIE "LEAGtE."
It seems that Horace Greely has in
curred the wrath of the New York
"Loyal League" of which he is a mem
ber, for his action in becoming one of
the bondmen of Jefferson Davis. In
the New York Tribune of Thursday
last, Mr. Greely published a reply, over
his own signature, to the committee of
the "League" who had cited him toap-1
pear before them and answer for his
conduct. He first vindicates his con- j
sistency by republishing editorials writ
ten immediately after the close of the
Rebellion, advocating "magnanimity
in triumph," and also, a letter publish
ed last fall, in which he advocated "uni
versal amnesty." He then assumes
the offensive in the following trenchant
Gentlemen, I shall not attend your
meeting this evening. I have an en
gagement outoftown, and shall keep it.
I do not recognize you as capable of
judging, or even fully apprehending
me. You evidently regard me as a
weak sentimentalist, misled by a
maudlin philosophy. I arraign you
as narrow-minded blockheads, who
would like to be useful to a great and
good cause, but don't know how. Your
attempt to base a great, enduring par
ty on the hate and wrath necessarily
engendered by a bloody civil war, is as
though you should plant a colony on an
iceberg which had somehow drifted
into a tropical ocean. I tell you here,
that out of a life earnestly devoted to
thg good of human kind, your child
ren will select my going to Richmond
and signing that bail-bond as the
wisest act, and will feel that it did
more for freedom and humanity than
all of you were competent to do,
though you had lived to the age of
X aek nothing uf jou, then, but that
you proceed to your end by a direct,
frank, manly way. Don't sidle otf in
to a mild resolution of censure, but
move the expulsion you proposed, and
which I deserve, if I deserve any re
proach whatever. All that I care for
is, that you make this a square, stand
up fight, and record your judgment by
yeas and nays. I care not how few
vote with me, nor how many vote a
gainst me; for I know the latter will
repent it in dust and ashes before three
years have passed. Understand, once
for all, that I dare you, and defy you,
and that I propose to light it out on
the line that I have held since Lee's
surrender. So long as any man was
seeking to overthrow our government
he was my enemy ; from the hour in
which he laid down his arms,he was my
formerly erring countryman. So long
as any is at heart opposed to the nation
al unity, the Federal authority, or to
that assertion of the equal rights of al
men, which has become practically
identified with loyalty and nationality,
I shall do my best to deprive him of
power; but, whenever he ceases to be
this, I demand his restoration to all
the privileges of American citizenship.
I give you fair notice that I shall urge
the re-enfranchisement of those now
proscribed for rebellion so soon as
I feel confident that this course is
consistent with the freedom of the
blacks and the unity of the Republic,
and that I shall demand a recall of all
now in exile only for participation in
the Rebellion, whenever the country
shall have been so thoroughly pacified
that its safety will not thereby be en
dangered. And so, gentlemen, hoping
that you will henceforth comprehend
me somewhat better than you have
done, I remain,
Yours, HORACE GREELY.
New York, May 23,1867.
A BAD FOUNDATION.— The Potts
ville Standard of Saturday last says,
"on Friday of last week a large board
ing house at Mahony planes, belong

Compaq, which was built over a mine,
su?tdehly,sunk,into the earthtoadepth
of seventy feet or mqVe, by the caving

occupants of the house saw the back
building sinking, af s, made their es

thirty or forty in cliaiyeter.' The
roof of the house has been Cached by
digging, and three hundred' dollars in
money and some of the furniture taken
out through a hole made for the pur

upsetting of a stove, and it was found
necessary to turn on a stream of water
to extinguish ihe flames. Most of the
furniture is badly broken, and the
house is said to be a complete wreck."

THE -MORII.E RIOT.
A Plain. rnvarnishMi Account of its
A letter just recieved here from a
well known in political circles of the
Northern States, dated at Mobile, May
15, gives probably one of the most cor
rect accounts of the late riot in that ci
ty that has been prepared. It is brief
and comprehensive, and carries npon
its face the impress of truth. The
whole story of the riot, from its incep
tion to the end, is told in a few words.
The writer says:
I write you from this branch of the
"Lord's vineyard" to give you the
ptain truth as to the riot last night at
While Judge Kelly was speaking a
policeman was having a verbal alterca
tion with a drunken fellow who was
misbehaving, and seized him for ar
rest. The crowd immediately around
was excited, but not noisy or violent.
At this particular time the horsesattach
ed to the ambulance of Colonel Shep
pard's Fifteenth infantry were fright
ened and started to run through the
crowd. Of course every person tried
to get out of the way; and rushing fu
riously in every direction pressed a
gainst others; and some person, be
lieving it to be a riot, tired a pistol
whereupon there was a general firing
—sometowards the speaker's stand and
some from it. Kelly got under the ta
ble and then got away to the hotel, no j
one attempting to molest him. There
was no person on the stand hurt. The
only persons wounded and killed were
opposed to the radicals, except one ne
gro, who was found dead some dis
tance from the scene. The whole affair
sprang up in a moment. There were
no preparations for it. The party
mostly armed were the negroes. There
is not a respectable man here who does
not greatly regret the occurrence. Ma
ny, of course, do not like Ivelley's rad
icalism, but there was no disposition to
prevent his speaking or break up his
meeting by any leading man here. I
was at the meeting a while, and all
all there seemed attentive and quiet.
Judg Kelly came very hastily to the
Battle House, and a guard of soldiers
were thrown about the house to guard
him. He was taken to his meal by mil
itary, and seemed afraid to leave here
for Montgomery in the regular steamer,
having a special boat to carry him
from this wharf. He was in no more
danger than I was, and could walk
the streets with just as much safety.
He did not need military protection
any more than I do, but he called up
on the military for effect. It seemed
more martyr like to need protection.
It would create more sensation North.
It was a trump-card. The whole affair
will give Kelly more notoriety than
all his other acts combined. I regret
that the affair took place, because of the
lives that were lost, because of the in
terruption of free speech, and because
it does gross injustice to the people of
HONOR THY PARENTS.—AS a stran
ger went into the churchyard of \i pret
ty village, he beheld three children at
a new-made grave. A boy, aboui'teu
years ofage, was busily engaged in pVc
ing plants of turf about it, while a girl,
who appeared a year or two younger,
held in her apron a few roots of wild
flowers. The third child, still younger,
was sitting on the grass, watching with
thoughtful look the movements of the
other two. The girl soon began plant
ing some of her wild flowers around the
head of the grave, when the stranger
"Whosegrave is this, children, about
which you are so busily engaged ?"
Mother's grave, sir," said the boy.
"And did your father send you to
plaeetheseflowersaround your mother's
"No, sir, father lies here too, and lit
tle Willie and sister Jane."
"When did they die?"
"Mother was buried a fortnight yes
terday, sir, but father died last winter;
they all lie here."
"Then who told you to do this?"
"Nobody, sir," replied the girl.
"Then, why do you do it ?"
They appeared at a loss for an an
swer, but the stranger looked so kindly
at them that at length the eldest re
plied, as the tears started in his eyes.
"Oh, we love them, sir?"
"Then you put these grass turfs and
wild flowers where your parents lie be
cause you love them ?"
"Yes, sir," they all eagerly replied.
What can be more beautiful than such
an exhibition as children honoring de
ceased parents ? Never forget the dear
parents who loved and cherished you
in your infant days. Ever remember
their parental kindness. Honor their
doing those things which
you know would please them were
they now alive, by a particular regaid
to their dying and carry
on plans of usefulness.
—lf the Radical to the
Ohio Constitution.succeeds at the.next
election, 4,000 negroes will be enfran
chised and 24,000 white men will be dis
franchised. Besides this the negroes
will not be subject to military tax or
duty, although admitted to equal rights
with the whites. Such an amendment
certainly should not pass.
A YANKEE lawyer who was plead
ing the cause of a little boy, took him
up in his arms and held him up to the
jury, suffused in tears. This had a
great effect, until the opposite lawyer
asked the boy, "What makes you cry?"
"He's pinching me," said the boy.
A SMILE.— Oh, the strange witeh
ery of a smile! Tell me where is there
a heart so stubborn or so cold that it
will not acknowledge the charm of a
smile? I do not mean the fawning smile
of flattery, the studied smile of false
hood, the chilling smile of scorn, the
cutting smile of revenge, the bitter
smileofselfish triumph, the frozen smile
of haughty pride, or the mocking smile
of hidden sorrow; but I mean that
frank, truthful, soul-born smile that
bursts like a radiant sunbeam over the
countenance when once a human soul
seeks the sympathy or communion of
another. How purely beautiful or ex
pressive the silent language! Words
are but impudent mockery in its pres
ence! How all-potent its powers! It
bids the drooping spirits rise and soar
upon the pinions of its own re-awaken
ed melody; drives the lurking phan
toms of doubt and jealousy from the
clouded mind, and fills it with the
cheering light of hope, and tells joy to
sing again! Such a smile blessed mem
ory brings me now. It rested on
my pathway for one moment like
choicest rays. The face
from which it shone was a very plain
one, yet at that moment it seem
ed an angel's. I never met anoth
er smile like that. Memory's loveliest
treasures may fade—that one smile
must ever retain its heaven-lighted
beauty. Often when I turn brain-weary
with the ceaseless toil of thought, or
heart-sick of the world, its hollow hom
ilies, its soulless mockery, or longing
for one ray of youth, that one smile
in all its pure beauty conies before
me and bids me "be reconciled to hu
man nature." There is character, too,
in a -mile. I care not what may be
the countenance—let me see its natu
ral smile, and I will tell you of thesoul
itrevea lsormasks. Every kind, truth
ful smile, is a ray lent us from the bright
ness of our spirit home, by which we
may lighten the dark places or dispel
the clouds which arise along the way
of our fellow travelers. They cost noth
ing, and I would that in this world of
weariness and mourning there might
be many more such smiles.
CHEERFULNKSS.— Dante places in his
lowest hell those who in life were
melancholy and pining without a cause,
thus profaning and darkening God's
blessed sunshine; and in some of the
ancient Christian systems of virtues
and vices, melancholy is unholy, and a
vice; cheerfulness is holy, and a virtue.
Lord Bacon also makes one of the char
acteristics of moral health and good
ness to consist in "a constant quick
sense of felicity, and a noble satisfac
tion." What moments, hours, days
of exquisite felicity must Christ, our
redeemer, have had, tho' it has become
too customary to place him before us
only in the attitude of pain and sorrow.
Why should he be alwaj-s crowned
with thorns, bleeding with wounds,
weeping over the world he was appoin
ted to heal, to save, to reconcile with
God? The radiant head of Christ in
Raphael's Transfiguration should rath
er be our ideal of Him who came "to
bind up the broken hearted, to preach
the acceptable year of the Lord."
. POWER OF A HORSE'S SCENT. —
"There is one perception that a horse
possesses, that but little attention has
been paid to, and that is the power of
scent. With some horses it is as acute
as with the dog; and for the benefit of
those that have to drive nights, snch as
physiciansand others, this knowledge is
valuable. I never knew it to fail, and
I have ridden hundreds of miles dark
nights; and in consideration of this
power of scent this is my simple ad
vice; never check your horse nights,
but give him a free head, and you may
rest assured that he will never get off
the road, and will carry you expedi
tiously and safely. In regard to the
power of scent in a horse, I once knew
one of a pair that was stoien, and re
covered mainly by the track being
made out by his mate, and that after he
had been absent six or eight hours."

"Good morning madam. Ah! you

under the bed. "No, Susy, you may

POINTS IN A GOOD MILKER. —A cor
respondent in the Country Gentleman
"In selecting a milker, look wdft%
the udder. Before milking it should
be wide and broad, not hanging down
like a sack ; and hard and shiny, nearly
destitute of hair, and what there is
should be flue, short and bright. <After
milking, the udder should be soft, and
apparently a skin bag> If after milk

shows that it is flesh, not milk, that
A BOY PREACHER IN WALES.— A
boy preacher has appeared in Wales,
who, according to his admirers, is to
extinguish Mr. Spurgeon. This prom
ising youth is Master Enoch Probert,
who has just completed his eleventh
year. On Easter Sunday he preached to
a crowded congregation in the Baptist
chapel at Gladestry, Radnor. A local
print says of him: "He has a sweet
and powerful voice, which he manages
well. His delivery is remarkably dis
tinct, and his hearers were astonished
at such marvellous truths from a boy of
such tender years." After preaching
two sermons on the Suuday, Master
Probert spoke atlenth on the following
