A Wreck.
George Alfred Townsend writes to
the Cincinnati Gazette, in a letter des
criptive of the incidents of a sea voy
age, the following item of interesting
personal intelligence:
But the central figure of the ship is
an old man, in whose lost and strug
gling intelligence you see reminiscen
ces of long command. Ik is Comman
der Hartstein, who was an officer of
the I nited States navy 33 years
When the war began, his instincts,
though a South Carolinian, were all
for the Government; but his wealthy
wile influenced him first to passiveDess,
then to rebellion. He gave up his
commission, which was his history,
and, like a lost energy, wandered to
and fro in Charleston, full of premoni
tions of the success of the great Gov
ernment he had betrayed. When the
fire was first opened upon Sumter, he
strolled, in the same abstract way, to
Fort Moultrie, and looked at the gun
ners driving iron into the faithful old
castle. There was no enthusiasm in
his regard. Next morning, when the
flag of Fort Sumter fell, a stroke of
paralysis fell upon Commander Hart
stein. God spared him the work of a
traitor, if not his defection. They car
ried his wrecked body to a blockade
runner, and he lay stunned and re
morseful in Paris for three years, fil
led with bitter upbraidings against his
counsellors. They fed " him with a
spoon, like a baby. He has returned
home to find his broad acres laid waste;
his wife's homestead is untenable.
Lonely and wearily these two, with
their daughter, are returning to Eu
rope to spend tbe rest of their life in
almost indigent exile.
Childhood Hays.
We should constantly bear in mind
that children are very sensitive, and
can easily be made happy. Let their
days pass pleasantly away. Bright
memories of childhood tend to refine
us. Kingsley, the author of 'Alton
Locke,' &c., says: 4 There is no pleas
ure that I have experienced like a
child's midsummer holiday. The time,
I mean, when two or three of us used
to go away up the brook, and take our
dinners with us, and come homo at
night tired, dirty, happy, scratched
beyond recognition, with a great nose
gay, three little trout, and one shoe—
the other one having been used as a
boat, till it had gone down with all
hands out of soundings. How poor
our Derby days, our Greenwich din
ners, our evening parties, where there
are plenty of nice girls, are after that!
Depend upon it, a man never experi
ences such pleaeure or grief after four
teen as he does before that time.—

An eastern editor says that a
man in New York got himself into
trouble by marrying two wives. A
western editor replies by assuring bis
cotemporary that a good many men
had done the same thing by marrying
one. A northern editor retorts that
quite a number of his acquaintances
found trouble enough by barely prom
ising to marry, without going any fur
ther. A southern editor says that a
friend of his was bothered enough
when simply found in company with
another man's wife.
Vol. LV11.N0.19-
Burled Alive.
A friend, says the Indianapolis Jour
nal, gives us the account of a most ter
rible case of the burial alive of a hand
some young lady, at Jacksonville, Illi
nois. Some time last summer a young
lady, seventeen years of age, suffering
with the tooth ache, went to bed with
a small phial of chloroform for the pur
pose of quieting her teeth. In the
morning she was found to all appear
ances dead, which was confirmed by
the opinions of several physicians who
were called and examined her body.—
She was then buried. A few days
since her relatives were'about to re
move from Jacksonville, having loca
ted in another Stato, and had the re
mains of the young lady exhumed, for
the purpose of taking them to their
new home. Curiosity prompted them,
to open the coffin, when they wero
horror stricken on finding the corpse
turned over, both hands full of hair,
and her clothing torn to shreds, re
vealing the horrible truth that the
young lady had been buried alive. The
chloroform had placed her in a deep
trance, the awakeningfrom which she
was in her coffin and grave. The
young lady was engaged to be mar
ried at the time of her supposed death.
A more heart sickening case we never
remember to have read or heard.
Facts for the Copperheads.
James E. English, who was lately
elected Governor of Connecticut, was
burned in effigy in 1863 by the leading
Copperheads of that State, for having
first voted lor the abolition of slavery
in the District of Columbia, and then
for the Constitutional Amendment
abolishing slavery throughout the Uni
ted States. In 1867 they take him up
and elect him Governor, and, with
their usual effrontery,claim his election
as an endorsement of their anti war
record. For several years they tried
to carry the State with disloyal candi
dates but failing each time by a small
majority, they concluded to take a
Democratic abolitionist , and with him
they have succeeded.
The election, pecuniarily consider
ed, has been an expensive one. The
following is given as a reliable estimate
of assessments made on the candidates

A Grog Story.
The following is going the rounds of
the press. It smells rather fishy:
Friday last came near being a good
: day for the lovers of grog in Cincinna
ti, but a bad day for tetotallers. A
whisky distillery"burnt, and the corn
juice ran in streams iuto the river, and
was carried up to the receiver of the
water works, and thence was trans
ferred to the reservoir. Thus, the lat
ter was filled with grog, and next
morning the people had whisky in
their water, whisky in their tea, whis
ky in their coffee, whisky with which
to perform their ablutions, all free of
extra charge. Never was there so
much grog mixed in one day, and it
would have beon a grand time to those
who do not believe in surprising their
stomach with water unmixed with
whisky, but for the fact that the pro
portion of water thrown in was above
the standard, and the grog was weak.
As a consequence, no one was pleased.
Those who take whisky objected to the
quantity of water thrown in, and those
who prefer water, objected to the whis
ky part. It was neither one nor the
other—something like Kentucky neu
A Puzzle in Figures.— We clip the fol
lowing for the amusement of our puz
zle loving readers : Bid a person think
of a number; tell him to double the
number, which done, bid him multiply
the sum by 5, and tell you the pro
duct ; from this you cut off the last fig
ure, which will always be a cypher,
and the number remaining will bo that
first thought of. For example: let the
number thought of be 26, Which dou
bled makes 52, that multiplied by 5
produces 260 * then it you take away
the cipher, which is the Jast figure in
the product, there will remain 26 the
number first thought of.

the company with a song. He imnfe

your conduct on this occasion is so
highly improper, that I cannot helD
