]resident Lincoln, according
to "Agato," of the Cincinnati Gazette,
WAS favorable to the escape of Jeff.
Davis. The late Prosident is repre
sented, on the authority of Gen. Sher-
man, as having said :
"Out in Sangamon county there
was an old temperance lecturer who
was very strict in the doctrine and
practice of total abstinence. One
day, after a long ride in the hot sun,
he stopped at the house of a friend,
who proposed making him a lemon
ado. As the mild beverage was be
ing mixed, the friend insinuatingly
asked if be wouldn't like the least
drop of something stronger, to brace
up his nerves after the exhausting
heat and exorcise. 'No" replied the
lecturer, couldn't think of it ; I'm
opposed to it on principle. Bat,' be
added, with a longing glance at the
black bottle that stood conveniently
at hand, 'if you could manage to put
in a drop unbeknownst to me, I guess
it wouldn't hurt me much 1'
"Now, General," Mr. Lincoln is
said to have concluded, "I'm bound
to oppose the escape of Jeff. Davis ;
but if you could manage to let him
slip out unbeknownst like, I guess it
wouldn't hurt me much !"
* We consider the march of
Sherman through the South one of
the great feats of tho war, and the
services of his army, if second to
any, only so those of the Army of the
Potomac. But notwithstanding all
this, some of the Republican papers,
who do not like the General political
ly, decry him by calling him "the
pedestrian of North Carolina," and
consequently his men come under
the same heading. Its a pity that
the editors of the Philadelphia Daily
News and Wilkes' New York Spirit
had not the opportunity to "pedestw'
an" also through Carolina.

(It' Nine out of ton of the Reput,.
cans in the northern states were not
in favor of the abolition of slavery on
moral grounds, but because of the
political advantages it would give
them. That the said nine have been
sadly sold is in keeping with the an ,
tecedents of that party.- They never
fully consider a subject, and jump at
conclusions sometimes the most
ridiculous for men who profess to be
shrewd. If they had gone in for the
abolition of slavery on high moral
and conscientious principles they
would be justified in feeling gratified
at the result, but other feelings hav
ing prompted the large body of them,
they feel no doubt greatly chagrined
at the result of their clear bought agi
tation. For instance. One of the
political hobbies of the opposition
party for years past has been the
three-fifths representation in Con
gress by the South. It is true they
never represented the question prop
erly to their adherents=probably
never understood it themselves, but
they rode the horse. Hereafter sla
very being abolished, and hence no
slaves, there will be no three-fifths
representation, consequently every
negro will count as a whole man,
thereby giving the South a gain of
about fourteen members of Congress
and as ninny electiral votes. This
is an accomplished fact, and as the
South counts against there

They are scratching all their natural
hair out in endeavoring to arrive at •
a solution of the nigger question. 7--
We observe that quite a number of
them, who, a few weeks ago, were
violently in favor of making voters
of negroes, are beginning to see two
sides to the question ; while. others
are becoming satisfied that they
should not:have votes, at least for
the present. Why can't they let the
niggers alone ? Why continue to
distract the country on such a ques
tion ? The only good that can come
from the present agitation, is, to
show the people who the agitators
are and have been. What, a heap of
trouble and anguish the country
would have been saved if the ''black
cuss" had never been dragged into
politics, and the tact that the:Repub
licans are indisposed to let the sub
ject rest even now, after slavery is
abolished, but wish to distract the
country still more by propositions to
make• them voters, shows that they
are the ones who keep the negro "be
fore the people," hoping to profit
thereby, in the future as they have
in the past. Their doubts, however,
about the popularity of the measure,
as well as the opposition of President
Johnson, causes many to scratch
their• heads. We trust there will
soon be a sufficient number of such

last, issued the following eloquent
and tipirited little farewell address to

SoLannna—This day two years I assumed com

of the United States. To-day, by virtue of the
same authority, this army ceasing to exist, I
have to announce my transfer to other duties; and
my separation from you.
It is unnecessary to enumerate here all that
has occurred in these two eventful years, from
the grand and decisive battle of Gettysburg, the
turning point of the war, to the surrender of the
army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court
House. Suffice it to say, that history w ill do
you justice; a grateful country will honor the
living, eberish and support the disabled, aed sin
cerely mourn the dead.
In parting from you, your commanding Gen
eral will ever bear in memory your noble devo
tion to your country, your patience and cheerful
ness under all the privations and sacrifices you
have been called on to endure.
Soldiers, having accomplished the work set
before us, having vindicated the honor and in
tegrity of our government and flag, let. us return
thanks to Almighty God for his blessings in
granting us victory and, peace, and let us ear
nestly pray for strength and light to discharge

Gov. Andrew of Massachusetts, and
his followers are very anxious that
the negroes shall vote in the South
ern States. There are not many ne-.
groee in Massachusetts, and that,
State refuses to let them vote unless
they pay taxes on $250 worth of
property. Now we suggest that
Massachusetts import 500,000 South
ern negroes, (and they can be readily
found hanging about the cities and
meet populous towns,) give them the
right of suffrage, without regard to
property, and "elevate" them to a
level with the whites of that State
without any delay. The number of
500,000 negroes in Massachusetts,
would not be one half as great in pro :
portion to the whites, as the number
of negroes in some of the Southern
States is in proportion to the whites
there If Massachusetts wants to be
philanthropic, and deal out justice
to the "colored loyal citizens," this
is the way for her 'to do the' business.
Indeed, it is about the only way, as
she cannot very well do the voting
for and manage the municipal affairs
of States four hundred miles from her
own territory and jusisdietion.--

A pew in the meeting-house of the

pew - is as good a place to tart from
as any pew in the meeting-house.

NEW FAMILY SEWING MACHINES.
USEFUL IN EVERY FAMILY!
LADIES TAKE NOTICE ! !
PATENTED IN THE UNITED STATES, ENG
LAND, FRANCE AND GERMANY.
SECURED by ten different patents in the United
States, and fully licensed under the patents of
Howe, Dachelder, Wheeler & Wilson . Grover & Deker,
and Singer & Co., these being the only cheap machines
of any kind which are thus licensed, and all other
cheap machines, if sold for less than forty dollars each,
are infringements, and sellers and buyers make them
pelves liable to prosecution. The words "Shaw &
Clark, Biddeford, Maine," are cast into the iron work
of each machine, and it has also a round silver plated
patent plate on it with the manufacturers' names.--:
These machines are a perfect marvel of simplicity and
mechanical ingenuity, being r imost el tirely unl.ke
all others, both in design and principle. They make
the celebrated elastic lock stitch, now acknowledged
to be the best for all family purposes. The length of
the Mitch can be changed while the machine ie run
ning ; they are not injured - by being run backwards ;
they use thread. linen or silk, directly from the origi
nal spools withontnnwinding or oiling; they work
with equal facility on the finest Swiss muslin, or
through several thicknesses of woolen cloth. No part
of them requires removal to be oiled. They hem, felt,
stitch, bind, embroider, quilt, tuck, braid, guage and
plait, and a child or person who never saw a sewing
machine of any kind can learn to run them in a few
minutes, their wonderful simplicity rendering instruc
tions for using them almost entirely superfluous.
