A t.oso statement appear in the Mew
York Time of Wednesday morning about
tbe eirly campaign! ef Gm. Grant, which
are itated tu have (siren dissatisfaction it
headquarters at Washington; tbnt bo wm
severul times to be superceded, but tfaii wai
prevented by cirentnslanres. When be
began the investment or Vlcksburg the
inoreejent wa condemned at headquarters,
and gnally after the successful assault on
Yickiburn la May, an order wai vent to
Gen. Bank, tben Investing Port Iliidson,
directing blm lu ge and take the commaud
from Gen. Grant, and assume it himself.
The order waa as imperative one, neverlne
Ipm Gea. Bauki did not obey the order.
' repPed and expostulated. Tbe coniid
rallen on which that elfloer bawd bii ex
postulations, will appear wbeo tbii remark
able correspondence reel tbe liibt. Tbii
ronch, however, may be raid. .He pointed
out that for him to. abandon bit position
at Port hudeon would give up the key or
tbe Mississippi, . imperiling not only the
tenure uf New Orleani but jeopardizing
onr poaltlon of any point of vantage on that
vital water-line. . v .
To tbii rejoinder there came from Wash
ington a lecoud command t Miperiede Giant
and wbeo tbe impolicy or the nep wai again
pointed out by Hanks, be wai severely cen
sured for'diaobedieuco of orders. Tbe cor
respondence between Gee. Banks and tbe
authorities at Washington continued till the
lull or Vicktlmrg, wben every scrap of pa
per bearing on tbe snhject wm spirited away
from the archives or tbe departments, while
Banks putting tbo writings salely by, kept
bis own counsel. Tbe sooret or this critical
passage in bii li(e was, until a month, un

Dr. Johnson was sccustouied to lay fre
fluently, by way of reproof or Instruction to
friends, that the habit of looking at tbe belt
ide ol ivory event wss worth more to any
person than a thoiiiand pounds a year.
And Dr. Johnson wai right, tor cheerful
nees is man's normal condition, and despon
dency and melancholy, the inevitable re- j
sulti of dwelling on the dark tide, lead to
dyspepsia and hypocondria, tbo most terri
ble afflictioo man can have visited upon
biin. If misrortnnri come, don't fold your
bands in despair, but face tbo blow at onee '
aod seek to repair injnry. There are but
few reverses that might not bavo beea
worse. Think of that,ind tben try and find
something in tbo evont to cheer you or
make you reconciled. Will moping and
mourning over your troubles mike them
take wings? Will the constant contempla
tion or your sorrow! and tbo enumeration
or your woei, to yourself or your friends
iniki them lesi grievous to bo borne
Tbink about them jnit as little si possible,
and endeavor to find some aheering circum
stances, aome ray of light, some ground for
hope in tbo ifflictiobi that bavo come upon
Tbo pool bas laid that "Hope ipringi
eternal la the hitman breast;" and so it will
with any encouragement. Bnt if you per
sistently crush tbe bright-winged spirit, and
make your bean as gloomy as your counte
nance, tben it will ia time seek a more con
genial abiding place. Look upward always
tbe suoshiao is there, and if yoa leek Its
cheering influence you will find it. Tbe
man who ii continually cranking about iiis
ill-luck, who goes about bemoaning bii mis
fortune and piteoueiy complaining that he
hits no friends.. aad that fate is agaiusl him,
will soon be without my one to sympathize
with bim indeed. The gods help tbem who
help themselves, sml those only who work
ia the light, work cheerfully. The whist
ling laborer accomplish'! twice as much as
hit desponding companion, who stops to
groan, and whose vital energies have been
stifled by the gloom be carries ab&r.t bim.
Yes, Dr. Johnson was right.
Tuie Rochester Chronicle of a Into dat
says i,t the Arlington mlnitrvls: "The
Arlingtons met with an ovation last even
ing that was ghtlifying in the . extreme,
Tbo bell was crowded in every part, ei'rn
stools being necessary to accommodate Ibo
rush. There is nothing like a fuy heme to
place the audience wnd the erfurmer in full
sympathy, and it Is far easier to "081011' a
hoHSo" when tbo benches are full. As a
eonseqnea:e tbe performance passed off with
eclat, and the roan ol langbter that suc
ceeded every burlesque were evidence suffi
cient ot the merit of the pluce. Among the
gems of the peifortnsnee ol last evening
were tbo 'Old Man's Songs' (original), by
D. W. Collins, and the banjo eccentricities
by Mr. William Arlington. Collins de
serves great credit tor Lis fine iinperrna
lion of ao eighty year eld vet., end tbe
voice, notion aid dress could not be sur
passes. Arlington was exceedingly funny,
and kept the bouse iu a roar with the drol
lories for which be Is so famous. The com
pany is a very strong one. There will be
another performance this evening, with a
Complete clisuge of programme. "
This celebrated coinpsny will perform at

Til Titusvillo Herald publishes in a late
number whit purport to lie a private letter
from tbe South, whish is as full or lies as an
egg ii full of meat, and the editors of that
journal ought to know it. Th writer says:
"I don't llko anything; at the Uoiitb but
climate. Any Northern n.an who has lived
what we call barely comfortably would
be absolutely shocked at Ibe way they live
down here. Nasty in their person (the
very best of them) box and oorn constitute
their Chief diet; tneir tables are filthy, and
tneir guests are hogs."
Tbe writor must have been herding with
low down whites er nogroei during bii slay
South. In that ease bo has a perfect right
to lay their "gneeti are hogs." He knows
Peoplb are very careless ot their bogs
about here. Tbey leave tbo animals to
take care of tbomsvivei during tbe winter
months, and they rosru around at pleasure
devouring wbiit tbey can- get. Is tbero no
law aguinst cruelty to auiuiuls? Tbero cor
tsinly ought to bo.
