There is an excellent moral to the following story, which is told with great skill. It shows us how a vil liage is sometimes torn to pieces by a fight between two puppies. The most remarkable dog fight on record came off at Frogtown, on the fronties of Maine, some years ago. A fanciful genius, named Joe Tuck er, a man about town, ." a lounger, without visible means Of supporta do-nothing, loafing, cigar-smoking, good natured fellow, owned a dog ; sleek intellgient, And rather pretty beast, always at Joe's' heels, "and known as well as his master, and liked far more by the Frogtowuers. One day Joe and his dog were pass ing Bunion's , gFoCery store ; when 'a pie-bald ugly looking dog standing by a wood wagon, bounded on to Joe Tucker's—knocked him" heels over .iead, and so frightened Bob Carter's wife, who was passing towards her husband's blacksmith shop with his dinner, that she stumbled backwards b o . dihriA3o - mkttifbutoi - Go'irlagtnr. He started, hit Latherm's 'barber pole, upset a load of . wood, , . all of which falling down Gumbo's refresh ment cellar, struck one of Gumbo's children on the head, killing it fora short time, stone dead, and so alarm ed Mrs. Gumbo, that she draped a stew pan of boiling hot oysters into the lap instead of the dish of the cus tomer who sat waiting for the savory concoction by a table in, the, corner. Mrs. Gumbo rushed for the child ; the customer- for- the door. Mrs. Gumbo screamed, the child screamed, and the customer yelled : "Oh, oh ! oh, oh; oh 1- my poor child!" cried Mrs. Gumbo. "Eb, eh ee e e e," screamed the poor child. • "Oh, murder! Oh, my everlasting sir,. I'm scalded to all. eternity Murder, murder 1" roared the poor customer., • The horse, a part :of • the; wagon, and-some wood wore in their mad career. The owner of the -strange dog came out of the storejustintime to see Joe Tucker seize a rock -to de molish the savage dog ; and not Waiting to see Joe let drive, gave him such a pop on the back, that poor Joe fell forty rods up the street; and striking a long ladder upon which Jim Ederby was perched, paint pot in hand, some thirty feet from 'terra firma; brought ladder, Jim and paint pot sprawling to the earth ; crip pling poor Jim for life, and sprink ling the blue paint over the broad ' cloths, sattinetts and calicoes of Abraham Miller, a formal and even . tempered. Quaker, Who ran out of the door juats the two dogs had . gone fairly at it, nip and thigh, - nip and catch. A glance at matters seemed I to convince Abraham of the true state of the case ; and in an unusual :ly elevated voice; Abraham called out toloc Tucker, who • had righted up-: . "Joseph Tucker, thy dog's a fight ing !" "Let 'em fight it out, yelled the pug nacious owner of the strange dog. —"Let them fight it out ; I'll bet a log of wood - my dog can eat any dog -in town, and I can eat the owner." We have said Abralifim. Miller was a quiet man ' • Quakers are pro verbially so: But the gauntlet thrown down by the stranger from the country stirred the gall of Abra ham, and he rushed in the .store.— 'From the back yard, having slipped his collar, Abraham brought forth a brindle cur,'strong, long and power ful. "Friend," said the. excited Qua ker, "thy dog shaltbe-well- beaten, I promise thee ! Ilyke; seize upon him l---Turk here boy," and thodous . went at it. Bob Carter, the smith, coining up in time to hear the stranger's defiance to the town, - and bent on a fight with somebody for the insult and damage done -to his wife, clamped the collar' of the stranger, and by a series of ten pound ten upon the face, back and sides of his.. bully antagonist, with his natural sledge' hammers, Bob stirred up the strength and ire LEBANON, PA., WEP,S ESDAY, JUNE 28, 1865. of the bully strangey to . the top of his compasS, and they madelhe sparks fly dreadfully. .! .

NATURAL HISTORIES OF BABIES. Babies are of two kinds, male and female, and are usually, put up in packages of one, though sometimes two, in which case they ,are called twins, when nearly of the same age. They are not confined to any particu lar locality, but are' found plentifully distributed over ail parts of the in habited countries. Their ages are various and have a wide range. Wo have known them as' young as 'Ms easy to calculate time on swatch dial, and then again we have seen them where they have acquired the heal thy age of 25, with a fair prospect of 'advancing still further to babyhood. Thelr weight dePends on their heft ; but as they have twenty.one years to grow in before it costs them any thing, it don't matter so much how big they happen• to be when they commence. • Probably babies._ have more pet names than any other article of their size. In the tender 'years of their life, say the first two, they are lov.. ing:ly ncidressed by such endearing names as Old Beautiful, Sweetness, Honeycomb, Rim darling, Papa's Hope, Old Blessed, Mama's Soy; No ble Andsome ' supposed to be a, con tradiction of Old Handsome, and lion dreds of other appellations which we 'never, could' translate. - * 'Fot several years, until they could get old enough to play out of doors and soil their faces, their lives are dne long continuous game of Copenhag en, everybody laboring under the' &- lesion that all babies are good for is to kiss, consequently to see one is to kiss it. We cannot recollect of ever finding ourself in the presence of a baby, but what the fond mother would say to it, "Now be a good little deo, ry, and give gentleman a nice - sweet kiss." Of course we accepted it,. ttf.pugh. kissing ain't our forte,. We. modestf and! , don 4. are to - be seen kissing anybody. We a.,,0 - .:t'Ati'6,:''t:.,- don, t . It'atiker - after 'it as'some of our friends do. We are willing to kiss a pretty girl occasionally for her moth• er's sake or even for her own, rather than 'have any trouble, yet we think, if said pretty. girl .owed us a kiss, we should much prefer to have it remain enjraPrest to having it paid when it became due ;we -never should pre ' , sent our bill and demand pay,ment— net if we continued perfectly sane:— We understand that there are quite a number' of persons - WhOdiffer from us in regard to 'lckgoing ; if so,jet t.hem .differ„ we cannot stop ',to argue-the point; zs our shhjecv treats of ba the monotony of babies' lives -is varied by such little incidents as' , an attack . , of, the measles,, mumps, or eroup,anclwewOulduotnegleet to speak of cutting teeth.- A btiby that.baslot 84,41571t4r0,agh f,th ese e tiles, is Considered wortlitneme haU them , ' in propeq s diseases afire, liOwPier 4 we'asily t;rPated,,-Und in a. ease of the Measles, all that is ne.ces hitry is to have thembretik out well, and to see to it that they don't strike in." With the mumps, just let them "mump" round a day, or two, and they will come out all right. ' With the croup it is necessary to "strike ile," generally "goose and if ap. plied in season, 'twill soon lubricate the throat without much trouble.— Cutting teeth runs longer than either of the other diseases, yet by a timely investment of a, rubberlin, and rat -tie; you. get rid of a 4 cter's bill.— When we were youtig, we cut ,our teeth on a silver dollar, but as dollars are now made of paper, they won't stand the wear and tear of a whole _set of teeth, and 'tis cheaper in the end to invest in the rubber rings. Learning to walk and talk are two achievements about which too much cannotbe said. Thew_ alkingthough is a mere nothing compared to talking, yet it is more dangerous, and accident often occur; still they ,usually acquire the art with the nec essary breaking of some crockery or furniture, which they frantically clutch at, in order to save a fall.— During the season of practising, noth ing can drop in the house, or the least noise be made, but what mother drop whatever she has in her hand and cry. out, "There.goes Wil lie • what has he, done now ?" and rushl to the scene of action : to find perhaps a flower-pot on the floor, and Willie engaged in scattering its con• tents about the room. After clearing up the debris, mother returns to her -wprk4hanking.ber_stars..that it waa eu.ana not vv iilie's neck% Their conversation in the begin ning is, a little difficult to understand. They abbreviate a great deal, and throw aside all pronouns as perfectly useless. Listening to that talk is like attending an Italian Opera; one hears the noise but cannot understand wbat it, means. The first "papa" or "mamma," distinctly spoken, is worth five dollars to either of the de- lighted parents. Babies must not only talk themselves, but must be talked to, and the amount of baby talk used iii a common sized family is : :prodigious.• Baby's appearance opens a new field to all. The old hands who have seen babies - before, CQI3VOITO in the language quite fluent ly, but'tis ludicrous to hear a begin ner undertake to master this difficult tongue. Talking baby-talk is an art which few ever acquire to perfection, though, by constant practice, the most stupid can partially acquire it, yet it takes two or three generations of babies to make a perfect linguist. The effect a baby produces on a family, no matter how sober, said fatally-may be; is wonderful to be hold. It completely turns the heads of all. If any particular one behave more insane, or is carried away more than the rest, we think grandma will bear off the palm, although pa, ma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, and a long list of cousins, are not counted out by any means. We think the mother acts . the most sensible, though even she has her failings and weak points in regard to baby, and will occasion ally-exhibit a trace of insanity when dilating upon his charms and accom• plishments. _ The effect babies have on progress lion is self-evident. No one ever knew of a baby inferior to any other preceding baby. On the contrary, each one is a little in, advance of any yet born ; and when we think of the vast number yet to be, and how every one will be a trifle superior to its predecessor, what a glorious future awaits us l We shall eventually reach perfection. How can tlrose persons who believe that we retrogade instead of-progress, reconcile this fact with their absurd theory Some people, a little enthusiastic, look upon a baby "as a thing of beau ty and joy forever." Now we have soon some whom we thought bad a liberal discount of their beauty,.and their “joy forever" would quietly van ish on having it commence to cry and refuse to be comforted, when left in our charge, and we busily engaged in reading, or, writing. It must be comforting to a man, 110 matter'how ugly or despised he maybe, to think that he was once a baby / heloved by ii-large circle of rel atives and friends.

TRAGEDY IN IVIASSCHUSETTS—FULL . DEI AILS OF THE :SHOCKING AFFAIR, [Froze the Boston Journal, June 19.] One of tire most terrible and revolt , .irig crimes which has ever occurred in Ne'w England,Waß revealed in Rox bury late yesterclayafternoon. It' is one of those .horribledouble tragedies which sickens the human beaxt and makee'tbe blood,boil with a volun taxi- desire to intiet summary ven geante upo'rvtbe'llibum'anund fiend ish-perpetrators. , 'lt will be, recollect ed,, as ttated, in: . the, papers of last week, that on MOhday. last two chil dren—brother" And sister—geft their mother's hoe:seta walk but'''tO Rox- ,whereabouts,had beep tinsuccessfal, beyond ,the,laCt'lhat a nine! itißox bury saw two children answering their des'cription, on the day of their disappearance, wandering in the di rection of Dorchester. The mystery was solyed-yesterday hoivever, by the discovery of their lifeless bodies, bearing nnmistakabie evidences of a terrible outrage and :murder. The discovery was purely accidental, notwithstanding active and thorough search was in progress to discover the cause of their absence. Two BoSton merchants had gone' to Roxbury for the purpose of recreation and while strolling through what is knOwn as Bussey's woods, they were su.ddenly startled: by discovering the rnurdered body of the little girl Isa bella. They at once notified _the city authorities, who immediately proeeedeno the scene of the tragedy. The only means by which the body could' he identified was the clOthing. The features which the little one re sembled 'in life were succeeded by those of a terrible and painful death. Upon examination it was discovered that she had been outraged in 'a fear ful manner, and frOm the manner 'in which her e clothing was torn 'it was apparent that she had violently re sisted the assaults upon her until completely- overpowered. After com pleting their terrible villiany, the fiends sought to cover up the awful crime by another scarcely less horri ble. Murder followed, and this was accomplished by beating and stab bing. 'As incredible' as it may seem, not less than sixteen stabs were in. Rioted upon her body, mostly' in the Coroner - Ira Allen an Dr. Arno were called, and the coroner took charge of the body. The girl was only fourteen years of, age, but was very fully developed, and the appear ance of being scarcely less than eigh• teen. After the body bad been identified as that of Miss Joyce, and the cir cumstances made known that her lit tle brother Johnny was also missing, a search was immediately commenced to ascertain what had become of him. The fearful anticipations that he too had shared the same fate of his mur dered sister were soon a painful real ity. After two or three, hours' searching, his dead body was found only a few rods from the spot where his sister bad been outraged and killed. He was lying upon his.face, and death had been caused by sever al stabs inflicted with a dirk or some similar instrument, in the small of his back. Appearances indicated that the w,ounds were inflicted while running,, and it, is reasonable. to sup pose that be was being pursued or driven away by the wretches against whom he Was feebly resisting to save the life of his sister. Ile VMS twelve years of age, two years her junior. Near the scene of the diabolical crimes were found several wreaths of flowers and evergreens, wrought with great care and taste. They were apparently engaged in this in nocent and childish amusement when set upon by the brutal murderers.— When they left home each had ten cents, but only three cents was found with them yesterday. _They had probably 'spent - Abe rest to pay their fare iu the horse cars. The bodies of both of the deceased are now in _charge of Coroner Allen, who will hold an inquest at once.— There is, of course the most intense excitement in the, vicinity where the brutal affair occurred, and mingled with the expressions 'of ven geance upon the perpetrators of the brutal crime, there is also much sym pathy manifested for the bereaved parents, who live in Concord street in this city. That such fiends as per petrated the horrible deed exist in this community seems almost incred ible, and it can but be the hearty de sire of every good citizen that they shall be speedily arrested and pun ished. There is as yet not the slight est, clue to the authors of the brutal outrage, but if the adage is true that "murder will out," it would seem al most impossible that the wretches who perpetrated this, double crime should-escape. A reward of $5OO has been offered by , Alderman W. W. Clapp, of Ward Eleven, in behalf of the citizens of that ward, where the unfortunate victims resided. Stir The trial of Jeff. Davis, it is said, has been postponed until Sep• tember. - Mark our prediction that if tried by a civil court, the defence will get, at, least one postponement, then the prosecution will ask one, the case will not go to , a jury within a year from this date, and Jeff's neck will not be stretched, I 6,t ~66En~isan.

The New York Tril ne says, sett ten tiously : "If.we give the negro a bay net, why Gan we not give him a ballot? If he gives his life to save the country, should we nct give him a voice in its management?" It does not follow that every ne. gro who has held a bayonet has serv ed the country ; nor does it appear that every negro who "gave his life• to save the country"=that is, who went into the army—did through. patriotism. Perhaps the least said about negro patriotism, in the face cle the bounties offered, the:equality prom teed, the persuasion used and the force employed to get up a black ar my, the better for both the negro and consideration of om his admirers. As to the military ser oh black the troops , ballot vice performed with the bayonet by claimed the whi is c onsid use the current phrase, "they can't see it." Taking, their number into consideration, there could not proba bly be selected from any of the ar mies of the Republic an equivalent number of white troops who -have performed less service. Perhaps this may have been owing tothe fact that that class of troops, through special favoritism, were always , kept in re serve, in holiday. trim—to grace re views and dress parades, and to take quiet possession of cities and battle fields after the white veterans had de feated androuted the foe. 'Whatev er may have been the reason, we ask if such is not the truth ? If denied, will the negro advocates please eon trast the services of the white and black soldiers, numbers with num bers, and show wherein the latter have been superior. It is well known that the late Abo lition Congress passed a law giving to the black soldiers the -same pay, rations, clothing, bounties and pen sions as were enjoyed by the white troops and besides this, it was or dered that camp duties and laboring service should be shared alike by white and blacks soldiers—thus granting privileges to the blacks nev er before enjoyed by them. And yet, after thus giving to an inferior race (and who dare deny that the South ern negro is greatly below the most humble class of white men, both in intelligence and natural abilities) such extraordinary and unlooked for privileges, it is proposed to grant them—in consideration of their myth ical services with the bayonet— still greater favors • full citizenship What will the negro s e u cates propose to grant to the white veterans, upon whose shoulders have rested the burdens of the fight, as an offset to these favors to be bestowed upon the black ? Are the negro troops to be the only gainers ? Are they to receive all the material benefits that the whites have received, and are they then to be burnished up with glories stolen from the white soldiers, in order that they may go to the bal lot-box and oppose the cardinal prin ciples in the political faith of those very white veterans to whom they owe not only their freedom but that very privilege of suffrage which they will thus pervert ? It will not do.— If let alone by designing politicians the negroes will be content with free. dom, and will not ask to be made the tools of ambitious demagogues at the expense of the veterans who have fought out freedom for them.—Pa riot & Union. HOW TO DISPOSE OF YOUR FRACTION AL CURRENCY, Many persons in business are con stantly inquiring how to dispose of surplus quantities of fractional cur rency, which they find no small an noyance compared with the "solids" they were wont to handle in days gone by. We would inform such the redemption of'their currency is con stantly taking place at the Treasury Department in Washington, and at the various Sub-Treasuries. In or der to redeem, it is required that the currency bo put in packages contain ing, as nearly as may be, even hun dreds of pieces, or, in other words, that each package of five cent pieces contain $5, of ten cent pieces $lO, &c., that different varieties of the lissame denomination of currency be ent in separate packages, faced uni formly upwards, and that mutilated currency be sent separately from the whole. If the packages of currency thus arranged are addressed to the Treasurer of the United States at Washington, and registered at the Postoffice, returns by check on New York may be expected in from eight to ten days. ler A Russian soldier recently, while .enjoying himself at a rustic ball in one of the Polish villages said be could put a bullet through a man's hat at one hundred paces without touching his head. A peasant ac cepted the wager, but in order to foil the marksman, squeezed his hat so low down over his eyes that the ball went through bat and bead both, and left him a corpse on the ground. The soldier was sentenced to a month's imprisonment for homicide by imprudence, but he appealed 'a gainst his sentence, alleging that the fault lay with the peasant, and offer ing at the same time to repeat the experiment with the judge, provid ing the.latter did not "bonnet" him -self so completely. Moniteur de 1' j Arnzee from which we extract the Istory, does not inform us whether the learnivl functionary accepted the soldier's very liberal offer.
