How to, Give " Parole."
A correspondent of Missouri Democrat re
lates the following good-one :
Some weeks ago Col. Lawson, now of the Mis
souri State Guard, was taken prisoner by a
Company of some hundred labels of southeast
Missouri. They first thought that they, would
kill the Colonel, as he had been rathera prom
- Went Union man, but finally concluded to re
lease him ou "parole"—that most fashionable
;way, of disposing of " belligerents': now-it-days.
But they had. no bbuilt-parolets, and of coupe
csks,barl,tolxi wrzttem. But, on, examinatiOn,
not a man of tke whole, company could_ .wrikt !
Hera Watt a "OW for the scions of Southern
civilization• and chivalry. A happy thought
struck them, however, and they agreed that
the'Colonekshould write, his own parole,, which
he did, and swore himself to support the Consti
tution of the United States, and not to take up
arum sgainst the A:Won, The parole thus writ
ten, "subscribed; and sworn to, the Colonel
was turned loose, the sole possessor of the bril
liant practical joke he had perpetrated upon his
intelligent (1) captors.
"Julius," .an. intelligent "contraband," on
.the above story told, exclaimed:—
"What am de Government guine to turn dies

dename of de colored-,population, I protest

tion of the powers that be.: FACT,
Rant, ZatTIPP/Z.—lf you want to mike an
angel, select a good woman for the, material ;
and if you want to make a real deifil, just:Pick
out a bad one, especially if a secessionist. 'We
notice that the other day a fine cake was sent
to Kra. Greenhow, a rebel lady confined in
Washington. Lieut. Sheldon stuck a penknife
into it in several places, and striking .a hard'
substattoe ' opened it, and , found Treasury notes,
fivetand tens, to a.coiniiderable amount; also
-letter, stating that arrangements had been
made to effect her escape and conveyance to
.11ichniond i and naming the day and hour of
deliverance. When: the. lady. found out the
discovery, obtained from her, cake, her auger
was, uncontrollable. The Lieutenant bought
her a Bice new cake and sent it to her, but she
'slims* down stairs. ,
A Baltimore widow, Mrs. Batley, was brought
in to share the prison'of Mrs. Greenhow and
Mrs._ Toole. She was three days from Bich

• Firtara.—Blackwood says ; "There is perhaps
nio Ainorican newspaper. idiom more offensive
to English taste, than the constant use .of this
word *female' to _denote a woman. The late
lamented Sir Morgan O'Dougherty laid , it down
as one of his maxims, that it never.was used in
this sense 'by, any man above the rank of a
chimney sweep.' Mr. Bartlett notes the con
stant recurrence of the term in the popular press
with xery just reprobation ; it sounthi unpleas
antly, as he observes, se•if referring to an ani
mal. It is satisfactory to learn.that the House
of Delegates in.lriarylarid,in the year 1889, in
the discussion:of . a 'bill to'- protect. the reputa
tion of unmarried females,'. (though one is sorry
to hear that such a bill was _necessary,).struck
out the offensive word and inserted women.' '
