At first, old Joe Hemp proposed to take
the old chaise just'as it was linings strip

with a trumpet the glad tidings to the whole
village, taking especial pains to stop before
the house of Mr. Spriggs, and blowing loud
enough to drown all the forty pia'nds in the

kind little wife.
"La I they'll all know of it soon enough!'
she said, kissing the baby; "I wouldn't hurt

They did know of it, and a few years af
terwards that all agreed that John Clarke
had really turned out to be a good man. So
much for the old one-horse chaise.
The Restlt or Low Wages roa Work
woman. The practical result of low wages
of seamstresses and work-woman was il
lustrated by an incident which came to .our
knowledge last night. 'Ayoung girl, neatly
though plainly dressed, svas ' arested by a
police officer for improperly soliciting men
upon the street. When taken to the station.
house she admitted the charge, but said sbe
was compelled to adopt that course of' life
or starve. She came from Vermont, with
her mother and sifter, because they could
find no employment there.
Since their removal the mother has been
sick, and their support had devolved upon
this girl, who worked in a shep on Essex
street, and received ten cents for making
thirteen coat button -holes. Work as hard
as she might, she could not earn enough 10
support the family, and to .was compelled
to add to hers earnings by . going .'on the
street. She told her story plainly, but with
an apparent feeling" that she was justified
by the necessities Other facia known to
the police corroborated her story, and there
is no doubt that she was driven to a life of
shame. Such faets show that there is still
work for philanthropist a and reformers at
home, even in Boston. Boston Post.
The Starke county Democrat published at
Clinton Ohio, says :
"A preacher-in this city, last Sabbath,
took for his text tbo 14th, verse of the 12th
chapter of Hebrews. It reads as folldwa:.
"Follow peace with all men, and holiness,
without which'' no man shall see the
Lord." ' : '
The revemed gentleman read this text
from the Terse as follows : -.,
"Follow holiness, without iskich na mari chatt
see the Lord'" v ' , .
The words, "peoje with all men," were not
acceptable, And hence were omitted." .;
So it seems that the Abolition preacher
are geinglo take the same liberty with the

You may have heard of Fort Lafayette, it
is a great resort of friends of the adminis

THE LOCATION , .
of Fort Lafay ette is in the water between
the Atlantic ocean and West Point.
; It is a good site for a marine residence;
but 1 have'm seen any mariues here. It is
inaccessible on all sides, except the inside.
Its out accessibility is what I most object
to. ' " ;' '
THE WAT TOO GET IW
is curious, and may interest, your readers
who have'nt been here.- You can't go by
railroad, or steamboat, or horse and buggy.
The entrance is effected in a highly military
rnauner, invented, I believe, by General
"Dix, or of some other man.
You go to Fort Hamilton,
Which isjost over the way. . .
A 1,250 pound shell with the inside out
is provided tor the purpose. You get in the
shell. ' it ia then put in a 2:40 inch mortar
and rammed down cn a barrel of powder.
The mortar is touched off and up yon go.
Yon keep going up about fifty miles. You
then come down and land right in the mid

The artilleryarlist has attained great pre

Are the people mad ? In the name of
Heaven, we ask our fellow countrymen are
they mad has reason departed from the
land 1 Do men ask themselves the objects
of this terrible war ? . Why our fellow citi
zens are driven to the slaughter pen like
bullocks why our rivers are tinged with
blood our soil saturated with human' gere
our country sounding with , the wails cf
widowed women and helpless children
We say, do our people ever, ever ask these
We are told the war is to preserve f&e
Government to uphold the majesty of tht
Constitution to preserve the Union.
What Government ? What Constitution?
What Union ? '
"The Government of our fathers," the
hTPocrilical office-holders say. Never was
there a more wicked falsehood. Did' the
Government of our fathers demand the erec
lion ot hornu bastiles over the land, in
which to incarcerate free white citizens b3
cacse of their political opinions? Did the
Government of our fathers demand the de
struction of the liberty of speech, the free
dom of the press and literty of conscience
the great franchises it was intended to
protect ? Did that Government authorize
the assumption of despotic powers by the
agents of the people in order to enslave
freemen ? Did our forefathers ever con
template by their Government that such
creatures as Butler and other military sat
raps should have and exercise unlimited
power and control over the lives, liberty,
and property of free white citizens should
leil a freeman how he should pray when
he should speak what he should wear and
what he should say and unless be obey
ed, he should be manacled like a felon,
burled into a dungeon, or shot down like a
beast ? Never, never. It is a base slander
upon the founders of our Government a
loul aspersion upon our ancestors to say
that they ever formed such a Government.
Yet these are the powers now claimed and
exercised by Abraham Lincoln and his mil
itary satrap throughout the land. These
are the powers which they ask Onr fellow-
countrymen to let them exercise, upon the
false statement that they are necessary to
support the Government of enr fathers. Are
you mad, that you will longer heed such
wilful misrepresentations ?
"The Constitution ot our fathers," these
wicked and hypocritical rulers say.
Yes. The tyrant at Washington says he
has regard high regard for that instrument
and in his last fronuncimento issued to
000 of his employees in Kentucky oner.Iy
admits thai hs has violated that sacred chart
of our liberties, and this under pretense of
preserving the nation.
The Constitution of our fathers. Yes.
Who re is the blessed instrument ? it has
been torn to tatters by the ruthless destroy
ers now in power, and its shreds are scorn
fully irampled under foot and spit upon.
Why, a leader of the party now in power
Mr. Collamer of Yerraont admitted the
other day in the Senate chamber, that the
Constitution was now never mentioned but
in terms of contempt and derision. It has
been denounced by the political friends cf
the Federal tyrant," as "a covenant with
hell," and but a little while back one of
them boasted publicly that it bad been com
mitted to the flames, and' thai he rejoiced
Away; then, with sueh a false preteaia as
this, that the war Is carried on to preserve,
protect, and defend tbe Constitution, when
the Commander-in chief of the Federal ar
my and navy thus boastfully proclaims that
he has violated the sacred chart, and his
friends are trampling it andsr foot!
For "the Union" these same wicked rul
ers will say. The "Union of our Fathers?"
not at all. A Union of peace, harmony,
aad love ?, No they scornfully answer.
What kind of a Union, the a, are they fig hi
inc for ? ; The answer is wiittea Ii blood.

and all the dread implements of death f I
it not now adjudged; treasonable . by the
minions of Federal lyranuy- to talk about
the restoration of the "Union as it was"'
the Union of our fathers? Are not men
imprisoned and banished for daring to otter .
a wcnl in behalf of the old Union of States?
Ha not the leader of the Federal party an-
nounced on the floor.of Congress that the
old Union was dead dead dead?
Yet with shameless effrontery these de
stroyers ol the old Union men who foe
years, long years, have made .it their bosi- ,
pess to denounce it as "an alliance . with
the devil," still tell you, countrymen, that
this war is for the Union" and that chief '
hypocrit of all, the President, calls npon the
people to pray for the Uoioo. What false
hood and hypocrisy.
Not the war is not for tbe Government of
onr fclbsrs it is not for tbe Constitation of
our fathers it is not for the Union 'of oar
fathers. It is a war carried on to destroy
that Government that Constitution that.'

old Government, and upon its rain to
erect a despotiim.
. Acts speak louder thao words. What
means Ben Bailer by. starling a newspaper
at Norfolk and dubbing itThe"Nsw Rc- ' -gime."
The word "Regime" is of French .'
origin. It signifies rule, system, govern .
meat or kingdom. Does not this show
what this shouldsr-sirapped military tyrant
is waging war for ? " '
- Upon the flags which be places In the
hands of his soldiers, are inscribed . the old -watchwords
of onr country, "This is for .
them." This is to animate their hearts and .
strengthen their arms to the performance of
valorous deeds. Bat bis newspaper is not -for
the old GoTernment. Not it. It sees for n
a "New Regime." It shows the purpose ef 1

What mears the name of the Fremont
journal just started in this city, The New

Again do wa askoor countrymen to pause .
and ask, is this bloody war waged for the
old Government, or is it not for a "new re-
gime,'' a new kingdom, a new nation ? ' ;
Look at Bauer's papers; look at Fre- -mom's

have to say, aud then answer ?
Again we ask yon if yon are willisg to
