BROWN LOW ON RETURNING REBELS.
Those who are in sympathy with re
turuing Rebels arc suddenly euamored of
the virtues of fxntaweeand pardon, and
no tumble of the world's LTstory basuch
attractions for 'them as the parable of the
Prodigal Sn. They seein never to weary
in quotingthis parable as otic of uqcriaul
ed beaaty aud pathos. It is interosiiug to
note the puiuts difTercuce between the
Prodigal Sou atid our returning Rebels. :
l-'irst-'-Tbe Prodig:il Son did nut $?ch)
he went with his fatlifr'n eousent, aud as
the Scriptures indicate, with his blessiag:
Next, he irn'ttj he did not stay and villity
r the old nnu in his ou n house. " lie asked
for something to start him in the world ;
be ;lid not prc:ect a pistol to the old
man's breast and demand his greenbacks
or watch. He received tho portion his
father gave him ; he did Dot prets it a
modern Southern name for stealing. And
rcreh'tii-J it. he started out ''to seek his
fortuue." lie did not retire to tho south
sld? of the old mnu's farm, and join a
! baud of robbers who were plundering the
j old man. and his law-abiding neighbors.
! Receiving Lis portion', be 'juicily took his
journey into a far coun'ry. Finally be
repented of his fully, not because the old
! man whipped him iuto repentance. bit
because be "came to himself," and saw
that he had wasted bis substance in riot
ous living. ' TI 3 went back home, not
with murder in bis heart, boasting bow
niiinv.be had killed, and threatning what
he would do, but he bowed down in hon
est coi'tritiou, aud ashed all sorts of par
don'. ITe didn't return saying, "I have
fought you four years, and until I was
overpowered," but bs went back
crying.
' Father . I have sinned ajrainat Heaven,
aud in thy sight, and am no. more worthy,
to be called thy son,", and iuiplorbg'y
said. "Make me as one of tby hired ser
vants." ' lie went home,' because,
throughout bis entire course of riotous
livings hit, heart wds there. lie did not
return demanding ''rights," his property
and back rents. He did not aak instant
pardon upon the faith of an oath of an
amnesty, but proposed to prove bis repeat
ancc genuine by his works, . ..
The story of the Prodigal Son is oue of
sincere, deep heartfelt and voluntary re
pentance for a great wrong., Do our re
turning Rebel come repenting of their
unpa relied crimes ? As long as rebellion
showed any s'gns of success, did they show
any signs of repentance?. .Are tiicy coin
ing back because they love the Union, or
were about to "pcriab with hunger?" All
who return ''peaceably to their homes, cul
tivate friendly relations, and abstain from
hostile acts dis-countcnaneing every at
tempt at disorder should be met with- the
same spirit and treated with ..leniency.
When they manifest a hostile spirit, rake
them Tick the dust. Knoxvillc Wlug.,..:

hjr they were, just abotjt. tj tartfifor

"new clothes.".
i : ... '.-u
The ride bad been 'delightful. It ran
eight mli'cs across oneof : the finest vaf
leys or series of. valleys in. the State.
Shade mouutaiu on. the north broken in
outline by numerous gaps and iauecta-
tious, with the more rcgulsj Yiejb gf , tb4
i uscarcra oa the south, bounded toe hor
izon in opposite directions, but witbia - no
narrow limits. The interior space , being
the whole breadth of the country, was
not less than twenty miles, including the"
Hue Juniata" along the foot -of Tujcarora,
and the, space to the north, .watered by
Lost Creek and its branches, and varied
by that rclling character of surface which
adds to the apparent distance and gives to
every turn of the road a new feature.
In this beautiful vailcy and at the .early
invigorating hour at whic it had been
rapidly traversed, ,thq scenery of Juutata
seemed moic attractive than ever. -
Give us, after all, our own Pennsylva
nia landscapes, with their mountains
and hills, their r.apid rivers, their dash
ing brocks, their clear glancing springs,
and here aud there a lakelet ; their tree
and viue-clustered homesteads, their rich
Hclds, their scattered shade trees and their
ever-recurring pieces of wood land, in
preference to all the broad prairies and
sea-like lakes and almost interminable
rivers of the mighty west. Wo do like
to quench our thirst at the clear sparkling
brook by the wayside, with enough of
motion in it to keep its life from stagna
tion. We do like now and then to get off
the dead level of the tramp, tramp, tramp,
be it walk, or trot, or gallop -over the
prairie, and to try other muscles of the
body, whether cf man or horse, in mount
ing and other sensations in the enjoyxent
of the bill top. t. In a. word, we like va
riety ; and, -though the fertility ot . the
west may be exhaustlcss and its p'oduc
tions almost spontaneous," we prefer th
compelled but kindly response which, the
mother earth of our own State makes to
the stalwart demands of her sons. There
is not only mauly eiertise, but peasant
variety in tncm. e may db unne oin-
ers in this ; still we rpiestion whether we
: .i n- i ii .i
could long continue to take pleasure in
the absolute ownership even of a dollar
mill, ere . some money . King to present
us with one, that should drop into, the
hand its golden grist, at the fixed rate cf
one per second neither more sor less,
and all alike bright, round and .yellow ;
but Btijl all alike auj always the s ainc.
Rat, lo come back from the "Yellow
boys" to Orphan boys; there they were,
clean washed, boots blacked, hair comb
ed and smiline, like other boys waitina
for their new suits. . Out of tearly one i

was" found to bo plain and neat, though

to the wearers'. " ' '

' Arrangements bad been . made, or
thought to be made, ty the kind ueigh
bors, to couvey all the pupils of tfce school
to Mifflin, where they wero to take the
cars for their homes and also to .enjoy a
reception by the kind citizens of t'ae place."
Before the half were seated, however, in
the carriages, wagons, &c., it appeared as
if there would be a lack cf conveyances
for all. Sp self aud companion threw
traveling sacks and cloth coats into one
of the carriages and took it afoot.
This eight miles walk," relieved by retts
in the shade, excursions over the feaees
after blackberries and cc occasional drink
of tLick-milk at a. faim bouse, was at
first most pleasant ; then it settled down
into "fine wbolcsome exercise j" next the
miles in these parts became astonishiugly
long ; and finally it was quite sufficiently
latiguing to render a good wash and a
cup of coffee at boat Snyder's hotel very
refreshing.
During this walk, somo of the occur
rences were suggestively though sadly in
teresting. Going in the same direction
with ourselves and generally passing us,
were the carriages loaded with the orphans
to an extent that . would . have., been in
structive even to a city street car conduc-
.tor in me sit ot .close packings ver
and snon a group of boys, getting along
... . t . .
by the old Eode.cf "ride and do" or
turn about, would be waiting in the shade
for the next wagon, or another be seen
hurrying along to the eppointed station ;
but all lively and bent on getting, to the
snd.of. the journey. Passing, the. other
direction, were groups ot horsemen cr per
sons in cr.riages,!witb lei horses. , These
latter were found to be purchases at, a
sale in the neighborhood that day, of dis
charged government horses., ; . Here were
two results of tho war and siirns. of its
close. The dead . warrior 'g,,orphans re

almost constant tightly rows and riotous
jioceedines ip.a. aberf ...the,, whisky
shops of the town the ladies, resolved to
put a stop to whiskey selling in their
midst. Thry improvised a meeting to be
held on Monday morning, met, passed
resolutions and marched iu solid phalanx
t! several places where whis.Ecy was "sold
in quantities to eoit pi;rc'bas-iTI" and de
manded the liquoi.vwhica wa3 persistent
ly refused ; whereupon,, with axes and
hatchets, they made an inT-olcntary attack
upon the doors of the establishbents, weut
in and rolled the casks out and spilled the
liquors in the struts. They were a most
determined set of raiders. The male
portion of the community looked on com
placently, thinking it s matter not com
mitted io their hands, and let the ladies
have their own way generally. The re
sult of this raid is the combination of the
whisky sellers, ho have commenced suit,,
against the raiders. The better disposed
citife.s held a meeting and resolved to
stand by the ladies, and see them through
the matter. The best legal talent will bo
employed by the ladies, whohve sacceed-

ed with little effort, in raising a largj
fund already to preiecate the ease thor
