NEVER COURT bUT ONE.
I have finished it, the letter,
That will tell him be is free,
From this hour and forever.
He is nothing more to me !
And my heart feels ligoter, gayer,
Since the deed at last is done
t will teach hits that when courting
He should never court but one.
Every body in the village
Knows he' been a wooing me.
And this morning he was riding
With that saucy Annie Lee.
They say be smil'd upon her.
As he canter'd by her side,
And I'll warrant you he promised
To make bet soon his bride.
But I've finished it, the letter,
From this moment he is free
lie may have her if he wants.
If he loves her more than me.
He may go it w.ll not kill me
I would say the same, so there,
If I knew it would for flirting,
It is more than I can bear.
It is twilight and the evening
That he said he'd visit me
But no doubt he's now with Anna,
He may etay there too, for me?
And as true as I'm a living.
If he ever comes here more,
I'll act as if we nevqr,
Never, never met before.
It is time he should be coming.
And I womlct- if he will.
If he docs I'll look so coldly
What's that shadow on the hill ?
I declare, out in the twilight.
There ia somo one coming near
Can it be ? yes, 'tis a figure
Just as true as I am here !
Jibw I almost w;sh I'd written
Not to bill that he was free;
For perhaps, 'twas but a story -
Tuat he rode with Anna Lee.
There he's coming through the gate-way,
I will meet him at the door.
And I'll tell still I love him.
If he'll court Miss Lee no more !

"Now, William, don't get noisy over

At last forbearance ceased to be a vir

sailor in our navy, having served over
forty years as ad enlisted man In April,
1801, he was stationed at the Warrentou

was the man whom B. R. Benshaw, of
the old navy, ordered to lower the Lnited
States flag on the secession of the State.
Mr. Conway, in reply to his order, an
swered that he "Couldn't do it." The
order was . repeated more positively.
"Lieutenant," answered the old sailor, "I
have served Under that flag for forty years,
and won't do it." The rebel lieutenant
did not insist. Shortly after Mr. Conway
was sent North and remained during the
war. He received from the citizens of
San Francisco a gold medal commenda
tory of his gallant action uti the occasion

With reference to the report of Gen

which accompanied the Presidents, nes-

containing, as it dues, so much that is ,
well known. hen he took command ot j
all the forces as General in-Chief, hi
foutid the armies of the East and the
West acting without coucert, and, "like t
lalky team, no two ever pulling togeth j
er." This gave the enemy great advant
age of using the same force, at different
seasons, against first one and then the
other of our armies, or else of withdraw
ing oue or the other to obtain rest. This
be determined to stop by keeping both of
the great armies of the enemy employed
all the time, and then, as he says, to "ham
mer continously" against, them with the
greatest possible number of troops h
could procure, until there should be noth
ing left to the enemy, but submission -i

A little way further on in the report ve
learn that Geueral Grant, before starting
across the Rapidan, iu his Richmond cam
paign, made known his purpose to put the
Army of the Potomac on the south side ot
James river, if he could not beat Lee
witbing going there. This revelation
over-throws all the newspaper argumen
tation that has been indulged in, on the
theory that he never drtiyited- to go there
at all, but was forced off his line.
The nest thina that attracts attention
is the following handsome tribute to Gen.
4I may here ctate that, commanding all
the armies, as I did. I tried, as far as pos
sible, to leave Gen. Meade in independent
command of the Army of the Potomac.
My instructions for that army were all j
through him, and were general in their
nature, leaving all the details and the exe
cution to bitn. The campaigns that fol
lowed proved him to be the right man in
the risrMplace. His commanding always in
the presence of an ntlioer superior to him
n rank, has drawn from Uni much of that
public attention that his zeal and ability
entitle him to, and which he would other
wise have reseived."
Here, as;uin. is a disastrous defeat to
the newspapers, and particularly to those
which supposed that, because they kept
General Meade's name out uf their col
umns, the world would never know that
he was the able and successf ul command
er of the army of the Potomac.
It is easy enoujrh. however to perceive
which of the army commanders had the
entire confidence of General Grant
Thus he epeaks in the same hearty terms
of Sheridan. He made Sheridan a visit
before the camnaisn of the latter in the
Shenandoah Valley, as he wished to ee
the positions and surroundings himself.
But he was so well satisfied with what
Sheridan placed before him that he saw
but two icords of obstructions were . ne
cessary, snd those two were "go in !"
General Grant savs he never deemed it
necessary to visit Sheridan again befjre
giving him orders.'
Of Sherman's movement from Chatta
nooga to Atlanta he says that it was
"prompt, skilful and brilliant," and that
the "history of his fhnk movements and
battles daring that memorable campaign
will ever b read with an interest unsur
passed by acythinz in history-" We learn
from this report also that "Shermas's

General Gran', more than two months
before he moved, and more than one
month before Hood started on his fatal
tramp to Tennessee. Wre learn too, that
Grant had doubts about the movements,
Id finally yield his consent.
It now appears also that General Grant
was veryanxious about the cautious pro
ceedings of General Thomas previous to
the battle of Nashville, but he now says
that "the final defeat of Hood was so com
plete as to vindicate the judgment of ttat

In the course of the narrative we find
two illustrations of the damage done by j
indiscreet publications of army move
ments. While speaking of the presta
tions for the expedition against Fort Fish
er, General Grant says, that through the
"imprudence of the prass," the enemy
was warped, and the sailing of the fleet
had to ba postponed. Tho other case
worked to our advantage, for General
Grant says that he' learned all about the
plans of the enemy through the speech
that Jefferson Davis made at Macon,
Georgia, in the fall of 1834, and which
was fully reported in the Southern press.

fl&tiajf SLIFER. SECRETARY OF THE
. lUflmN WEALTH.
The following from the pen of a or
respoadeiit of the Chamberbburg Reposi
tory, is a worthy tribute to a worthy
niau, Hon.- Eli Slifer, Secretary of the
Commonwealth. No political trickery, or
untuir means ever aided this man as he
ascended step by step to his present po
sition. A poor youug man, be started in
life with little or no aieans, but with a
better legacy than gold, a good name,
aud an honest purpose, he has carved out
a reputation for politcal integrity, hon
esty, and personal worth, which political
tricksters art vainly striving to tear from
"There are few men of the thousands
who meet him is his matter of fact offi
cial transactions in the course of a year,
who know Eli Slifer. the Secretary of the
Commonwealth. Quiet unobtrusive and
retiring to a fault, be labors in his respon
sible department week after week and
mouth after month, with a decree of in
dustry, integrity and a singleness of pur
pose which are rarely found in an official
these days. In all respects a self-made
man a trained mechanic, Without friends
or fortune or any fortuitous Circumstances
to give him advancement, he has won his
way by his own merits without seeking
distinction, until h ia one of the most
capable and thorough officials ever con
nected with our State government and
it would be well if in our national affairs
there weie more men of the clear, prati
cal judgment and thorough familiarity
with great questions aud with the people,
which Mr. Slifer has ever displayed in
bis various responsible public trusts.
He entered public life about 184S as a
member of tbe legislature from old Union
and Juniata, and was re-elected tbe fol
lowing year. In 1 8 I he was nominated
forSeuator in the Union, Mill! in and Ju
niata district, after a protracted and bit
ter struggle in the conference between
three other aspirauu ail agreeing in the
end to uuito on him. aud he was domi
nated in defiance of his earnest protect
and elected without opposition. In both
branches of the legislature he earned
confidence aud distiuo'ion by bis unfalter
ing fidelity to the interests of the State,
and his enlightened aud thorough views
as to our finances and sterling integrity of
character, made his political friends sin
gle hini out with great magnanimity for
State Treasurer in 1855. He was elect
ed, and more thau met the high expecta
tions of the State by his management of
the treasury, but the succeeding year the
Democrats secured a majority ia the leg
islature and he of course, bad to retire.
In 18513, when the Republicans again
carried tbe legislature, he was re-elected,
and the legislature of 18G0 again confid
ed the treasury to his keeping. In 18G1,
when Gov. Curtio was inaugurated, he
called Mr. Slifer to his cabinet as Secre
tary of the Commonwealth, and he has
filled the position until now with tbe same
spotless fidelity to the State and to his
chief which have ever characterized him
in all publio positions. He is still in the
prime of life; and if he bad ambition
equal to his strength and merits, he might
have many honors in store for biin in the
future ; but he would rather manage his
beautiful farm on the Susquehanna than
seek political honors however certain the
proepects of success. He has been a
most invaluable auxiliary to Gov. Cut-tin
during the harassing cares of his admin
istration, and when it shall be ready to
commit to history, there is no man who
till deserve better of the peoj.le, or to
whom Gov. Curtin would pay a more
heart felt and grateful tribute, than to
Eli Slifer. For tint teen years he has
been in responsible official positions here,
and he will retire the same upright, faith
ful, christian man h? came, after having
filled the highest measure of public trust
in the State, excepting only the Executive
chair, with eminent honor and success."
A Singular Case. About fifty-five
years ago, a voting gentleman and lady
formed an association as young people of
ten do, and it was supposed by the friends
that it would terminate in matrimony.
Hut for some reason best known to the
parties, the association was dissolved, and
they separated.- . The young man subse
quently married and lost three wives, the
last one within the last eight or nine
months. The young lady married, and
lived with her husband over fifty-three
years, and raised numerous family.
During the last year her husband died.
The lady remained a widow about eleven
triooths, when her former suitor made an
advance to her he being about 75 yean
old, and the lady 71 and they were mar
ried. Tbe parties are living ia the vicin
ity of Lynn P. 0 , Susquehanna county,
Pa., and the gentleman gave his consent
to the publication of this notice. Mon

Beauty ih Women. A beutiful face
and figure are the two things in a woman
that first attract the attention of a man.
The second is a fine taste, both in dress

untidiness, sloveuly habits and affectation.

Am Elephant on the Rampage.
An elephant, named Romeo, became un
manageable at the Ridge avenue depot, in
t hiiadelpuia, on Sunday night, during
the temporary absence of the keeper.
He smashed one wagon, partly demolish
ed a car, and tore down about seven stalls,
and then made his way up Ridge avenue;
traveled on that road northward for a
mile: tore down a feoce or two. and
twisted off a small tree in a fielc-. Word
was sent to the keeper, who sd eedilv arri
ved, and, who soon subdued the elephant.
The huge animal was taked to the mena
gerie, at Tenth and Callowhill streets, be

man, threw him against a partition, and
then, with his trunk, broke down a part
of tlie stable wall. The elephant weighed
five and a quarter tons, add is now per

WORKSHOPS FOR FARMERS. .
It is always perplexing and unpleasant,
and not nnfrequently a cause of much ex
pense, to be compelled to run to the car
penter or blacksmith every time a hinge
is to be replace J, a wheelbarrow injured
or a strap broken. To obviate such con
tingency, tho farmer should either be him
self or have in his employ one who can
repair such injuries, and he should also
provide accommodations and tools which
will enable him to do it. A workshop,
with a good bench,- vice, and al! the vari
ous tools required in the performance of
the more simple details, should, be among
the buildings of every homestead. A lit
tle skill in the use of tools and this any
person of moderate capacities can readily
acquire will enable one to savo many
dollars, annually, besides furnishing pleas
urable and profitable employment for many
an otherwise idle and perhaps painful
hour. Here should be found white sash,
paints, oils and brushes ; cements, pru
ning and grafting tools, syringes for irri
gating plants ; glass, nails, screws, putty,
glazing tools, and ' indeed, every article
that may be required in keeping the prem
ises and aparatus of the fcrm in a stats of
Having once -become accustomed to
these advantages and conveniences, the
wonder will be how it were possible that
they were not introduced long before.
Temper is Treating Stock. The
farmer's stock around him partakes more'
or less of the quality of tbe owner or
those who attend upon it. A man's influ
ence is imparted to his beasts, particularly
the horses, tbe working cattle, and the
milch cows. A man of irascible temper
gets up nervousness in a horse or a cow.
The brute becomes afraid of him ; and if
of a vicious nature, is apt to be hurtful,
spitefully influenced, perhaps irrcciaiola
biy spoiled whereas a mild-tempered, dis
criminative niaa will gradually smooth
down the asperites of a harsh disposition.
We have kuown milch cows, wild as deer,
brought to a placid tractabi'ity. The matt
is a superior and his superior influence
will be communicated. Wise . stock-men

IIow Mant Inches in a Bushel.
The standard bushel of the United States
contains 2150.4 cubic inches. The ''Im
perial bushel" is about tiS cubic inches
larger, being 2218.192 cubic inches.
Any box or measure, tbe contents of which
are erlual to 2150.4 cnbio inches, will
hold a bushel of grain. In measuring
fruit, vegetables, coal and other similar
substances, one-fifth must be added. Ia
other words, a peck measure five times
ever, full makes one ousbel. The usual
practice is to "heap the measure." Id
order to get on the fifth peck measures
must be heaped as long as what is to be
measured will lie on.
To Tretent Horses Kicking.
Having a horse that would kick every
thing to pieces in the stable, that he could
reach, and having found a remedy for it,
(after trying many things, such as fetter
ing, whipping, hanging chains behind him
for to kick against, &c.,) I send it to you.
It is aim ply fastening a short trace-chain,
about two feet long, fcy a strap, to each
