Dr. W. F. LOGAN,
August 8 1962.
Choice Poetrrj.
The apples are ripe in the orchard,
Thejwork ol ihe reaper is done,
And the golden woodlands redden
In Ihe blood of the dying sun.
At the cottage door the gnndsire
Sits pale in his easy chair,
While the gentle wind of twilight
Plays w uh.his silver hair.
A woman is kneeling'beside him,
A fair young head is pre.t,
In the first wild pas-ion of sorrow,
Against his aged breast.
And far from over the distance
The faltering echoes come
Of the flying blast of trumpet
Aud ihe rattling roll of drum.
Aud theGrandsire speaks in a whimper
''The end no man can see;
But we give him to his country,
And we give our prayers lo Thee."
The violets star the meadows,
The rose buds fringe the door,
And over the grassy orchard
The pink-Tliiie Dlossoms pour.
But the grendsires chair is empty,
The cottage is dark and still ;
There's a nameless grave on the battlefield
And a new one under she hill.
And a pallid, tearless woman
By ihr cold hearthstone sits alone.
And the old clock in the corner
Ticks on with a steady drone.
Abocl Eepartees.
A repartee we presume to be an immedi
ate and appropriate reply lo an obervatiou
iej ending upon the rapidity of the working
of the mental powers, which seem to work
rather fater with some people than others.
We were once riding in a staije coach with
a worthy farmer, the mud was very deep,
and our progress at the rate of 2.40 miles
per hour. To our impatient inquiries a to
when we should reach our destination, the
old man replied in a slow tone, which did
not belie his words. "I never allow my
mind to travel faster than my body."
Some persona however, seem to have an
electric current of wit, which flashes the
moment it meets an opposing one ; and it
is our purpose here to give from memory a
few specimens of ibis sort of wit, for which
we should give the authors proper credit if
we knew their name?. Besinning with the
two of Lamb's which cannot be left out of
soch a catalogue, familiar at they are
Fir?t his reply when he was rebuked for
cominr in to business at the India House
o very late in the morning 'You know I
always go away very early in the after
noon,' and Jhe still older one to the anxious
passenger's query on entering a crowded
omnibus 'All full inside V 'I don't know
how 'tis with the other passengers butlhat
last piece of oyster pie did Ihe the business
for me.' It is related of some frie nds of
Campbell, the author of Hohenlinden, in
leaving hia room after a gay supper, that
one of the number bad the misfortune to fall
down the steps of a long flight of stair?
the poet, alarmed at the noise opened his
door ar.d ingnired- 'What's lhat V Tis I,
sir, rolling rapidly,' was the immediate re
ply of bis fallen friend. Sheridan is said to
have remarked on entering acrawded com
mittee room, in parliamentary language
'Will some member move that I may take
a seat V Also on being asked how the sen
sitive Fox would lake a salary provided for
him by his charitable friends, replied,
'Quarterly.' A poor poet, desiring a com
pliment, asKed Curran, 'Have yon read my
Descent into Hell V 'No, I should like to
see it,' replied the wit. A prosy member
of parliament, having asked him s Have
you read my last speech he replied, ' I
hope I have.' Two old New England min
isters were riding by a gallows, when the
cider asked, the other 'Where wo'd yon
be if that tree bore its proper fruit V Ri
dicg alone wu the immediate reply. Ad
Irish girl at play on Sunday was accosted I
by the prie-t 'Good mornins, daughter ol
the devil, 'and meekly replied, 'Good morn
ing father.' Two friends meeli.ig, one re
marked M have iust met a man who told
me I looked exactly like yon.' 'Tell me j
who it was that I may knock him down,' I

I did that mv!elf at once.' The celebrated

Central Nelson ."3 ode to .lark lime.
A correspondent of the Irotiton (O.v.o)

occurred at Camp Joe Holt :
The camp guards after night are instruct- '
ed to allow no one lo pass in or out with
out giving a countersign, ad to retain as
prisoners those who come from the outside
to lha line with it. General Nelson came
to one of the guards one evening, just alter
the countersign had been given out, and
held something like the following conver
sation :
Guard Halt. Who comes there ?

The Demijohn Chorea.
Old Jndze L of Alabama kepi a demijohn
of Jsmaica in hi private office. The Judge
had noticd "hat on Monday mornings hi

gradually established iiself in his mind.
His sou a missing from the pew in
church. On Sunday afternoon Sam came
in and went up stairs rather heavy, when
the Jcdoe hailed him :
"Sam where have you been'"
"lo church, sir," wa the prompt reply.
"What church, Sam ?"
' Second Methodist, sir."
''Had a good sermon, Sam !'
"Very powerful, sir; it quite staggered
tne sir."
"Ah ! I see," said the Judge, "quite
powerful, eh Sam ?'
The next Sunday the son came home
rather earlier than usual, and apparently
not so much "under the weather." His
father hailed him :
"Well Sam, been to the Second Metho
dist again to day ?"
"Yes, sir."

' Fact was, father that I couldn't gel in .

Sam says on goinj to the office for his
usual Spiritual refreshment, he found the

label :
"There will be no service here to-day,
this church being closed for repairs."
No Usx for Thsm A letter from Port
Royal, S. C, to the Baltimore American,
says : "About 75 600 stand of arms have
been sent to this department from the North
since last fall. What Ihey were intended
for it is hard to ssy, but an order has come
for 50,000, and they will be sent North in a
few days.'1 It is evident somebody has
made cancelations wide of the mark. An
other fact of interest is stated in a private
letter received in Ne1 Haven, which says,
about 150 of Hunter's negro brigade had

The Republican Convention, he?d in this

be fully represented on any ticket this Con
vention may adopt.
This afleclior.atejreference lo Douglas by
men who. for ten jears previous to hia
death, spent their days and nights in revi
ling him, would be amusing if it were not
infamously 4hy pocritical. But in one re
spect this resolution assumes a more seri
ous character. It implies that, if,:lmrig.
Douglas would join the Black Republicans
and subscribe to their plan of support';
ihe Government in its efforts to put down
the rebellion. This is, virtually, charging
that lamented statesman with an inclination
id plunder the treasury, arm the Southern
-laves, annihilate a dozen .or more State
Governments, and ruin the country, We
regard this as a viles1andercpoh if.e illus
trious dead, unwarranted by anything ever
said or done by Douglas. His whole record
attests hisjbitler hatred of the principles of
this party, which, afiertraducing him as a
traitor for yearsnow, that; be is dead, ie
claiming him as its own.
Even at the very threshold of the world
to which bis spirit has departed, he desired
that his children should be lauht'to love
the Constitution which ihese Republicans
repudiate, and which some of their leaders
declare to be a "covenant. with death and a
league with hell,",and, in his last publio
speech, bedenounced the policy of the Re
publican party in respect. to arming lie
slaves. He w as for the preservation of the
Union, but declared that'savages'must'not'
be let loose" upon the women and children
of the South. On;;be 3d 6l(Januafy, 1861,
Mr. Douglas, in ibe U S. Senate, declared
and provedthe Republicans'to.t e respoti
sible.for the failure ot Crittenden's Compro
mise. He said :
"I believe this to be'a'fair bati of ami.
sable adjustment. If you of the Republican
side are not willing to accept this , nor ihe
proposition of be Senator from Kentucky,"
Mr. Crittenden,! pray tell us what you are
willing to do ?
"I address the inquiry to republicans
a'one, for the reason that in the Committee
of Thirieen, a few days ago, every member
from the South, including those from the
Cotion State, Messrs Davis and Toombs
expressed iheir readiness to accept the
proposition of my venerable friend from
Kentucky. Mr. Crittenden, as a final settle
ment of the controversy, if tendered and
sustained by the Republican members.
" Hence the sole responsibility," (mark
the language,) " of our disagreement, and
the only difficulty in the way of amicable
adjustment is with ihe Republican party."
Bot, notwithstanding these well-known
facts as to the sentiments of Mr. Douglas

his death, we find the ultra vsing cf the

Expense of Hindoo Marriage. There
i nothing which, to the end of their exis

with more pride ano satisfaction than the

extravagant, it is iheir "amookee," their
title of nobility, and the basis ol their claim
to repect in the eyes of those among whom
they live. I have known a young Hindoo
of the upper class, on arriving at his major

his estates, borrow three times the amount
of his annual rents, and pay exorbitant in
