henceforth obliged to share In thu Ine reaping
bnrdena of a podtlon to whose support we

you to whom we owe thin elrm'e in our con

manifested during our (tingle. blewed urtw,
while they gratified and rendered us proud
of your patronage, Increased our duty
to be worthy of your recognition.
And when, tiny after day, wo found

than that with whleh you expressed yourselves
so well pleased.
With the, purpose of affording a pleasant

although the circle of our fricuik is too large
for us to think of sending cards, we hope to

patwck'h Cavalry, while utlemptiug to cross
the Savannah river, were attacked, it is stated,
by Whi.ei.j.u, and retreated towards Milieu,
where Turkman had his hcadi(uarlers. Sher
man's army then moved towards the coast,
and a battle was momentarily expected. Tito
loss of the Rebels in this cavalry engagement
w as reported at seventy In killed, wounded,
and mbwhig. Our loss, of course, was reported
The Kichnioud K.atmiwr positively asserts
that up to last Thursday evening none of
Siikiiman'h Cavalry had reached Millen, and
also reassert Its belief that Gbant had sent
forces to Port Iloyal, to march up thu country
and relieve Siikkman. It furthermore px
prcses Its conviction that this attempt has
signally failed. According to the Georgia
papers of the 27th, seven hundred prisoners
bad been received at Augusta, captured wnilst
foraging lor Kiikuwan'h army. A despatch
jreeoJved 'y the l'.ichinond Yhlj last Thurs
day night stated that the Kcbcl forces had
engaged routed our forces at Gra-
Lauisville, SrtUJli Carolina, driving them
five miles. The pirty beaten are said,
Indirectly, to lie troops ei:t from Tort Iloyal.

A I.OMIUV MOH.
One hundred thousand people were present,
according to the Titnpn, at the execution of
Mi l.i i.it in London, on the 11th of last
mouth; "such a mob as no city in the world
could furnish but this of London; such a mob
as America entire could not gather a mob
of round-headed "snake-headed" It is some
times called white-faced thieves and ruf
fians, which stood through the long, dark
rainy day, waiting lor thu banging scene In thu
morning." Every window, house-roof, and
lamp-post lu the immediate neighborhood ol
t lie jail was filled or covered by persons anxious
to witness the fearful scene. Amid the Im
mense multitude In the streets, preachers
were engaged distributing tracts and talking
to thoae who would listen to their exhorta
tions; while largo placards, with scriptural
text, were hung on the walls, or projected
over the crowds by means of long rods.
Hut there were other agents than those nt
work, and other actions performed which re- I
vealed a most revolting state of morality
among the London mosses. Notwithstanding
tlie awful drama which wu In preparation,
the great majority of those assembled cng'iged
In the most boisterous and filthy language
shouting, laughing, and hooting in the very
ears of the poor trembling culprit who was to
be launched into eternity before their eyes.
This terrible punishment for crime had no
tenors for the vast number of thieves congre
gated on the spot. Robbery V;is carried ou
to an enormous extent, yet no arrests were
made. Men were garroted on the sidewalks
as they proceeded to the place of execution,
and the gurrolers escaped to enact the same
deed in other quarters with Impunity. Regu
larly organized gangs moved through the
dense throngs and along tho avenues leading
to the jail, knocking down, and filching the
pockets of every well-dressed person they en
countered. The. police did not appear to use
any eflbrt to make arrests, and tho oulj chance
a man had to save Ids money and his life was
to fly the ground. All the thieves, burglars,
and highway robbers In the realm .-eemcd to
be in the vicinity, of the prison, with a curie
blanche to steal, rob, and plunder to their
We do not give the Loudon Tiirum much
credit at any time for honesty or a high tone
of morals, but It appears thut the scenes at
Mfi.lkr'h execution really did shock Us ideas
of decency, for it remarks that "tho propriety
of such on amusement" as that of "bonneting"
and tossing hats over the crowd Into the drop
enclosure "at such a time admits of question."
The cloning act in tho Mi'Li.icit-Uitiiiiis
tragedy has thus been performed, and the cur
tain has fallen forever upon the actors in the
bloody drama. Hut the revolting deeds of
those assembled to witness it will not soon be
forgotten by thoughtful men, and ills to be
hoped that the Times has learned that "mobs"
can be gathered in London whoso acts far
surpass in disgusting nature anything ever
attempted by what it has been pleased to term
the "American mob9 of New York and Phila
delphia." People who live in glass houses
fchtuld not themselves throw stones.
One good result comes from our habit of
"following the leador." For a long time the
virtues of economy and industry were so
much lauded that w holt-some relaxation and
healthful amusement were banished. Vrc; aro
returning to reason; ai4 money-making is no
longer considered the chief and solo end of"
man. It is now partially nudrstood that
amusements not only are needed by the
masses, but that the masses will have them;
but still the subject Is neglected to a wonderful
degree. The proper employment of leisuro
hours Is of loo much importance to be uncared
for, and the home pleasures during these long
winter evenings aro not, as a rule, as refining
and ennol ling as they should be.
For books, papers, sit reoseopes, and music,
are too often substituted stupid and expensive
putties, which serve to kill time, but rarely
render it pleasant or proiltahlo. Among those
who can allord to griilily 11, a genuine love ol
literature nnd art snch a love as would make
them gladdening and necwtiry to everyday
life is raivly found. Jfsueh'lastesweru more
cultivated, the TmtMde recreations, sucli as
theatres und the like, would be of less concern
than they a.e. If any folly can be so super-
lutively great that none oilier can approach
it. it is the maimer iu which good and worthy
people treat some of our various places of
WANAMAkER &. BROWN,
No one familiar with the thrntre would
deny that much which Is objectionable Is con
nected with It; but Instead of trying to reform
any amusement that exists, they h ivo de
nounced the theatre. In the abstract, as
wicked, anil then quietly left It to Itself the
result of which, If they aro correct In their
judgment, so far as they are concerned, would
be that one of the most potent agencies known
to society would Is? suffered to do Infinite mis
chief without let or hindrance. Notwith
standing such excommunication, however, the
influence of these places of amusement is not
so bad as Is often represented. They unbend
the mind and rest the body. The mewt popular
plays have, In liiet, a good tendency. I'pon
the whole, the evenings of those ho depend
on places of public reort for their enjoyment
are not entirely wasted; but there is yet a
lamentable want of hlgh-toncd, unexception

A leading Rebel Journal asks, "Does reunion
promise unity, peace, and progress? Hoes It
not rather threaten, nay, iDsure, (Southern de
struction?" This query opens a vast field for
1 .l.itoric research. Let us briefly glance at
the precedents of other days, and see If we may
calculate on our beloved land ever again being
blessed with a' Union accompanied by "unity,
peace, and progress."
The grand cardinal objection urged by thosfl
who nrguo that "war is eternal separation" is
that the wide breach of feelings, sentiments,
and affections, consequent upon bloody strife,
will so dissever the hearts of the people of the
two sections that a life under the same poli
tical roof would be nought but a scene of
envy, strife, and ultimate destruction. Clio,
the Muse of History, however, exhibits upon
her tablets another tale. Slio tells us that
bygone nations with different Ideas than those
existing between tho North aud South have
coulesccd and formed a greater power.
When the United States Government pur
chased Florida and Louisiana from foreign
powers, they found them both populated by
nations difteriiig not only in government, but
ulso In language. The musical roll of the
Hidalgo tongue was ull that was ever heard
among the swamps of the Peninsular State,
while the mouth of the "Father of Wafers"
echoed only the mingled phrases of the French
man and Creole. The free Republican Gov
ernment of America succeeded tho despotic
Governors from acioss tho sea. Did the people
of Florida and Louisiana refuse to mingle with
the immigration which poured into their midst?
Do we find them divided Into distinct factions,
aud like oil and water, remaining In contact
though separate? They have coalesced and
formed a mighty commonwealth a unit,
und a fragment of a more glorious nation,
which is destined to mould the destinies of
tho world. If, therefore, when separated by
different tongues, two people join, like the
sjaxon and Norman, like the Roman and Bar
barian, like the Moor and Spaniard, why then
should wc infer that two sections long united,
speaking the same language, mid having the
same aims in life, should refuse to agaia com
bine aud mutually advance the interest" of the
Union? It would be a gross fall icy for any
one to predict otherwise; and when tho tide
of passion, incident upon war, and especially
civil war, shall have rolled away, both parties
will unite in a general condemnation of the
false sentiments eiitcrtaiucd by fanatics In
1HU. Wo may, therefore, reasonably rejdy to
our Southern contemporary, that, other tilings
being equal, with Union will come unity.
Let us now glance at tho question, Will
Union bring peace? When Queen Elia-
iifth lay on her death-led she was asked to
name her successor. She replied, "Who but
my cousin Jam eh, of Scotland?" "Rut,"
argued her adviser, "will not England bo
ruined by a uuion with Scotlautl?" "No,"
replied tho dying queen ; "tor Scotland will be
united to Rritain, not Britain to Scotland."
Time has proved her prophecy to be correct.
Tho union was ell'ected, the wars which
had for ages deluged the borders with blood
ceased, and a mighty power arose from the
combination. So with this land. As long as
the two sections were separated, thero is a
possibility, yes, a probability of war ; but assoon
as they find themselves under one Govern
ment again, living in tho same household,
peace, harmony, and fraternal alicction will
take the place of discord and embittered strife.
Let us have Uuion once again, and the breach
will soon lx; tilled up, tho wound ueaicd, and
a nation arise, Plit)'n!x-li!;e, which will prove
itself worthy of the streams of the liest blood
of our race which has been poured out as a
libation on thu ultar of patriotism and free
dom n nation worthy of the name of free
Columbia, free, indeed, In theory and in prac
tice. Such is the land which we expect to
shortly call our own. May God grant, tho
Will we have progress? During the last
ten years tho advuuee made by the American
people has a. toulshed tho statesma n of the
Old World. In wealth, population, and In
tellect, tht; strides our people have taken is
amazing to the contemplative mliij. IVe do
not propose to enter Into any exaaiimU.m of
this giotvth.thc fact is palpable tc all. If then
such has lieen done wheu the la'd was divided
in spirit and hiftitutions, hiuI wlu one section
was weighed down by the yok" f slavery,
may we not inlt r that when it is i jieved of Us
oppression, when it urises free au'i united, It
will redouble lis sM'ed towards 'o perfect
liurlit or civilization '!
We will yet live to s e the day wlrll our
hopes w ill be realized, wheu our divl 'd land
will be the one great libeitv-lovinj -ople of
the earth ; when the geniu- of its Gov ruutent
