AN EXTINCT RACE.
THE PRIVATE SOLDIER IN THE WAR
OF TILE REBELLION."
At the decoration of the graves of
the linian soldiers in the .N.ational
Cemetery at Gettysburg, Gen. B. F.
Ilutler delivered - an address on " The
*rivate Soldier of the war of the re
•bellion." It was a Vouching theme.
There is always a wonderful pathos
in a speech or -play or story founded
on a life that . has ceased to exist.
This is the charm, of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin ;" this is the power in - Joaquin -
Miller's " Panties ;" this must have
lent tenderness and : pathos to Gen.
Butler'S address. --
The " private soldier in the war of
the rebellion." He is dead. Or lost.
Strayed or stolen, prObably. We do
not know where he is, but he is not ho.e.
He has gone away to someplace -Per
haps if he were here he would'be - in
the way. At
,any _rate he is. not
around. lie does not-go to the Leg
islature. We do not find him in Con
gress. He is not eagerly sought as
a candidate for anything. Nobody
seems to- know anything about him.
'Occasionally he appeals at the-pen
sion list; with one - leg, a wife and
seven children, and $8 a month. If
flour takes much of a raise he will
not last Much longer at tills rate, and
we will be deprived even of;the
occasional glimpse-we have of him. .
It is asserted, - and quite generally
believed, that at one- time he was
quite numerous, and was even con
sidered rather convenient, if not, in- .
deed, quite indespensable.- It was
found that upward 100 Of him . were
-neeessary in order to svcure mere
line commissions for three eminent
and deserving men. When' field com
missions were-wanted for three even
more eminent and great men upwards
of 1,0;0 private soldiers were neces
sary. OLe thousand! It seems an
enormous nuinber now, which by, con
sulting the Congressional directory
we find there are non in this proud
public. But twelve or fifteen years
ago oven that, incredible .. as it- may
appear to us .to-day, was considered
a small number. There were private
soldiers and private soldiers. • There
were-even hundreds of thousands of
A nd r they were useful. They dug
trenches; constructed long lines of
breastworks and then, when an enemy
came - within sight, they climbed over
them and 'went outside them to.fight.
They worked a 1.1 watched and fougltt .
co-operating with great and eminent
men who have since passed to their re
wards in one office and another these
private soldiers sometimes rendered
very useful service in winning great
battles: Oh, they were useful. Some
'historians have even gone so far as
to maintain' that without them the
war could hardly have been carried
to a succesful termination. They
were really quite successful.
• And now they arer all gine. It
seems sad, looking back.to the war,
that none but the Generals and Rol
onels and Majors anil line officers
should have survived its dreadful
ravages. Providence) ever mindful
of the wants of a gre 4 t and growing
nation, undoubtedly took special care
of these.grcat men, and in its great
anxiety that the country -should not
suffer from a lack of eminent men,
kind of fcirgot,the private soldier and

I are all gone. Some of them got shot.

could get them more easily. Some

here, however, the rule is not abso

which it .is usually har d , to know at

HOW WE TREAT OIIR BRAINS.
Almost daily, I am in contention
with parents and guardians, school
masters and schoolmistresses, clergy
men-anti professors, youths and maid
ens, boys and girls, concerning the
right way of building up the young
brain.; of ripening the adult brain,
and of preserving the brain in age.
Grievonsly ill do we-take in hand to
deal with this delicate member, and
well is it that innate development
overruns our schemes and brings the
Variety of natural good out of the
,monotony of human folly: It is dim
ly felt by society that the reign of
bone and musttle . is over, and that the
reign of brain and nerve is taking its
place. Even the Gibeoriites now have
the hydraulic ram and the steam fell-.
ing. machine; the-spectaeled general
of forces fights in his tent by click of
battery and wire, and 'his lieutenant
hoists an- iron-clad by the touch of
two buttons upon his waistcoat ; the
patient earth forget; the tread of
horse and .ox, and is . ploughed by
steam . ; and ere long, no doubt, orr .
ministers will wind sermons dirt :of
barrel-organs, and our. Morning egg
will be broken for us by a waiter -of
dynamite. Hence it comes that all
classes - are for "'education!" The
village grocer's son goes . to a " theo
loolcal college," and sits `up by ;ght
over his " Evidences" with green 7,ea
in his blood, and a wet cloth about
his brows. The gardener's daughter
,pulls roses no more, and has become
a pupil-teacher; she is chlorotic at
. broken•spirited at twen
ty. The country parson's son -goeS•
to a civil service or ti,:'navy "coach;"
is plucked in his teens; and is to
begin life again with an exhausted
brain and an incurable megrim ;
even the sops of peers are putting on
the armor of . light, and are deserting
the field for the counting-house. To
meet this demand, Colleges of all.
kinds and degrees spring up—,ntiddle
class seminaries, theological colleges,
Colleges of science, university boar&

selves are stirring from their scholar-.

It need to be' believed thit alcohol

that it, contains 'not- one - single ele

it is umatter of proof . .thit.those can

and not a few eminent physicians

some of the : most . fewtut maladies,
but . even endangerS: tho body and
diminishes the mental power, to . an
extent of which few people are aware.
Least of all,ithen, is it a .peecessity;
seeing that it has been happily un- •

England alone three million of total

aba B oned it they, like the Nazarites
of Id, have been clearer of brain,
and more • strong of limb, and more
vigorous in health,-and more calm in
happiness. I assert, not as a dubious
theory, but as an established] fact,
that 'to men in ordinary health' , alco
hol is not food, nor 4 necessity,-nor
a eouree of health, nor warmth, nor
physical strength, least of all of men

potent medicine it is a mere luxury,
a luxury which is at the best harm- -
less, but which is fiequently.oanger-.
ous, sometimes fatal, alWays quite
supertlhous, never particularly noble.
Let us' understand then ;—while

SIMON CAMERON, the first Secretary
of War under President Lincoln,
honestly differed from the President
and most of they, other members of
the Cabinet, in regard to conducting
the war. This. faeti, together with
the desire of certaieNew York spec
ulators to control contrasts, aroused
a clamor against-,Mr. Cameron, which
culminated in a vote of. censure . by
the - House of Itepresentatives,. not
withitanding the fact that the Presi
dent sent a, message to theilouse as
suming the "irregularities" charged
against his-faithful Secretary. 1 den- -
eral Cameron retired from the`Cabi- -

of ' his State. The resolution, lo*-.

EDIT - OU REPORTED, ••
Dear Sir:—To da is 'election day. in
Kentucky; and to t hose Alio have 'only
known what election 'is In old Bradford,
it would be:quite a treat for-there - to see
and know the tricks resorted to in-the
South. Democrat here means Southern
Cenfederacy, and " Hate :Yankee" is their
sentiment everywhere south of . the Ohio
river, and it is instilled into the minds of
all their children from the time they can
ride a horse or use the revolver • or knife:
A man is never hung here for killing an
other, unless the one doing the deed hap
pent obe of that despised race denomi
nated the d—d nigger. A *bite man - is'
sent 'o Frankfort for one year, or goes
-scot free, for killing a man, while a negro
who steals two chickens • goes up fur two
years. This is equal rights in Kentucky !
Some members of the Legislature worked
hard last winter to revive old slave times
as nearly as possible, in the shape .of the .
whipping.post. Happily, they were de
feated.' I Stopped oil at Corinth, 4 small
town on the line of the Cincinnatti South

Some of them were men who had served
under him in war times, and-were happy
in 'recounting some of their bushwhacking
expeditions, not dreaming thatan enemy
was in camp. Bloodshed is expected here
to-day. - A republican was murdered here
on last election, nine mouths ago, fon.
cheering for his candidate. This is liLerty
in the.back districts of Kentucky, with
very little difference anywhere in the State
—as I hitve been nearly all over it I can
not see much difference. Is this the lib

they drink so much bourbon,, that nothing
but lightning can have any effect on them.

of it, and never use it. Laber is nearly

The Jews uniformly disposed of
their dead by entombment where
possible, and failing that, by inter
ment. The•practice was very ancient
dating back to patriarchal times.and
continuing unaltered by Any Oentile
influence. * • • .
..A natural cave, adap,ted . to the
purpose of entombment by necessary
excavation, or an artificial one, was
the standard type of sepulchre. The
limestone structure of Palestine,
abounding in such natural caves and,
- easily worked, was peculiarly favof-:
able to this mode of sepulture.. Tile
head of the family commonly provid
ed space for more than one genera
tion ; and the galleries excavated for
this purpose were sometimes of con
siderable extent: Cities, as they-grew .
in populatien,lrequired public ceme
teries, which were situated outside
the wall; only Alm tombs of kings
and prophets being permitted within
the town. The Rabbinical ideal of a
sepulchre was a cavern. about, six'cu
bits square, or six feet by eight, from
three sides of which vaults Were 'rub
longitudinally into- the rock, each
large enough to receive a corpse; the
fourth side containing • the door,
against which a large stone was 'reli
ed to close it.. 'Tombs not otherwise
distinctly marked Were scrupulouslY•
t' whitened " every year, after the
rains !Jeff:ire the _ Passover, to warn
passers-by against defilement'.
In' preparing for the burial; the
Jews, when , not deterred by poverty
.made large use of spices for' terripor
arity preserving the body, dud for
burning in honor of the dead.. Em
balming does not, however, seem to
have been generally practised, and
the interment took _ place. within a
few hours of death. If the death•oe
cuffed at evening,. the burial took
place at the earliest. break of dawn.
It was orignally the office of the
next of kin .to oversee the funeral
rites. but in the course of time fro-
Sessional mourners became customary.-
Colfin.s were but seldom nsed, and if
used were left open, The bier was
borne by the nearest relatives, and
followed by those who wished in this
way to show their respect for the
dead, and by professional mourners,
hired.for the purpose.
The ,grave-clothes were probably of
the fashion - worn in life, but swathed
and fastened with bandages, the head
being covered separately Thus Laz
arus, when he came from the tomb nt
the command- of Jesus, was- " bound
hand and foot with grave-clothes, and
his face was bound about with a nap
kin;" and Jesus's tirSt direction was,
" Loose him, and let him go."

WHAT IS KILLMG BIIniMI?
The. question is one that interests
every Person. As to the fact there
is he dispute'. Business is very mock -
depressed- "There is a large amount
of accumulated capital and surplus
money in the country, but it is not
seeking investment in productive en
terprise. Government bonds are go
ing off rapidly at 4 per cent., but
active enterprise is almost at a stand-
still. Times are not as hard - as they .
were three years, two years ; Une, year
ago, but they are still hard. There
has been a-decided and perceptible
improvenient in business,, but there
is still room for more. - Why ! bum.
ness does not-reviore rapidly is
a question that concerns every person
.alike, whether he be debtor or cred
itor; an employer: or an employe, a -
paiiper or a capitalist. All are equal- *
ly interested in hiving' e restoration -
of business prosperity, and the ques
tion why it does not collie is one
which touches the business and the
bosoms of all. Is itowingio a lack
of enterprise, or of the elements of
prosperity amongns ? Certainly not;
for no country posesses
GREATER, RESOURCES, ' -
and no people - greater capacity for
developing and 'utilizing them than
this country and people. Is it 'ow
ing to the heavy burden of taxation
borne •by the people? That can
hardly be, for business has prosper
ed and nations have grown wealthy
under heavier taxation than the Am
erican people are now bearing. Is it
due .tp any inherent fault or weak
neSs iii. the government? Certainly
not, for after all is said ' . the Govern
ment of the United States is one of
the mildest and most benefident" in
the world, if not -beyond.comparison
the most so. Is it the result of
or severe leolslation? Again
we say certainly n ot; for - a system of
legislation ,that has steadily Main
tained and, strengthened the credit
of the. nation' cannot have been inki
rious to- individuals or to- business.
Is it-caused, asiis so freely and fre- -
quently charged, by a contraction 'of
the currency ?_ No: for there is
in circulation now than there was be-,
fore the panic of 1873, and•the money
centers of the_ country are glutted
with unemployed funds. What, then,
is killin business? •
Tbis is what is doing it, viz: the..
growtla of communism, the agitation'
of the inflationists,
and the threaten
ing altitude of the Democrats in Con
gress. All of these causes are opera
ting in the same direction, and to-.
gather they are killing. business , by
alariing capital and retarding the,
ffrowth of confidence. The commun- -
ists,the - inflationists, the Nationals,
the repudtatioidsts and the Demo-,
and togather they represent the .ag
