Leaf by leaf i summer creeping.
Flower" by flower her glory reaping
Harvest of the rolling spheres;
Olond by cloud the sky U freighted,
And to every bud belated
They have stooped ia dewy tears.
Dtj by day the flocks are keeping
Watch upon the silent hills.
And the neon breese there is sleeping
To the cradle song of rills ;
Beam by beam the sun is stealing
Into the hearts of all the flowers,
And those crimson hearts rerealing
gametbing that's akin to oars.
Bird and bee hare spread the tidings,
Meadow-ward in goldea swarms.
And the season's first rude chidings
Wanton now in wealth of charms ;
All t6ing' worship, e'en the flower
Fold at eve its crimson palms.
M'iDth by month the moon's intrusion,
At spectre in the dark,
Moret in phantom-like illusion
All 'ha vernal bloom to mark ;
And tbe autre arch of hours
Measures eut the smmer's dowers.
Sight by night the sea of darkness,
Drifting shoreward to tbe sun
"Marks the earth with silent beauty
Ere the dusky round is run ;
And tbe eye beholds in waking
New perfections jusl begun.
Pulse by pulse our life is fleeting
Where unclouded mornings beam
lown the vale of yean retreating,
Like a white mist o'er a stream :
Soon a grave-mist will be roiling
All things in a long death-dream.
(rRKAT Natcral Cfriositt. The Sen
duel, published at Jacksonville. Oregon,
m the l'Jth ulL,saya : "Several of our citi
zens returned last week from a visit to the
wrest Sunkin Lake, situated in Cascade
Mountains, about seventy-five miles north
east from Jacksonville. This lake rivals
the iaiuous valley of Sinbad the sailor. It
i thought to average 2,000 feet down to
the water all round. The walls are almost
perpendicular,' running down into the water,
and leaving no beach. The depth of the
water is unknown, and its surface is smooth
and unruffled, and it lies so far below the
rarface of the mountain that the air currents
do not effect it. Its length is estimated t
twelve utiles, and its breadth at ten. No
living man ever has, and probably never will
Ke able to reach the water's edce. It lies
tilent, still, and mysterious in the bosom of
the everlasting hills, like a huge well,
fcooped out by the giant genii of the moun
tain ia unknown ages gone by, and around ic
the primeval forest watch and ward arc
keeping. The visiting party fired a rifle
cveml times into tho water at an angle l
lorty-fire degrees, and were able to denote
nveral 6econds of time from the report of
the gun until the ball 'struck the water.
Such seems incredible, but is vouched for
ly some of our most trustworthy citizens.
The lake is certainly a most remarkable
Cheap Living at Baltimore. The
Baltimore Commercial remarks : ' 'When
butter is twenty cents per pound, peaches
twelve cents per peck, and many other
things approximating the prices of these
articles in proportion, as they have been
ut late at market hours in Baltimore,
outsiders may begin to realize the advan
tages enjoyed by this city in having the fer
tile chores of the great bay handy, zr.d a
thousand 'pungys' more or less eon-f.ut-ly
running to Bupply our markets with good
and cheap produce. Remembering, too,
that during the past spring strawberries
were as low upon one occasion, as three cents
per quart, that the fact carries us back to
the pleasant and plenteous times before the
ar ; before wholesale extortion by war spec
ulators upon the necesitics of the people had
the effect of 'demoralizing, almost every
body else who had anything to sell, from a
ring of perch to a quart of blackberries or
barrel of flour. ' '
The New York TYnies makes the follow
ing ungallant observations: "Women seem to
tnalte poor hands of it when they get the con
trol of a newspaper. There have been half
dozen or more newspapers in the country,
within the last few years, Tinder the man
agement of women, including one at Wash
ington, and they have, without exception,
we believe, been discreditable to the sense
nd reason of the. female sex. Their nar
rowness of view," violence of" language, 11
manneredness and vulgarity have been pain
ful aDd shameful ; and though there are
occasionally women who do tolerable writing
in a certain order of papers, "when kept
properly in check, they seem incapable of

How to Treat a Lover. Some one
yiat knows gives the following prescription
for the treatment of alover : A lover should
be treated with the same gentleness as a
g'oTe. The young lady should pull him on
ith the utmost' tenderness at first, only
taking the smallest advance at a time, till
he gradually gains upon him, and twists
nim ultimately round her little . finger;
whereas, the young lady who is hasty and
to too great a hurry, will never get a lover
0 take her hand, but be left with nothing

Washington, August 17, 18S7. j
His Excellency Andrew Johnson President
United States: Urn lam in receipt of your
order of this date, directing me to appoint .
Gen. G. H. Thomas to the command of the
Fifth Military District, Gen. Sheridan to
the Department of Missouri, Gen.. Hancock ;
to the Department of the Cumberland, and ;
also your note of this date, enclosing the in
structions to carry into effect the enclosed
order saying "I would be pleased to hear
any suggestion you may deem necessary re
specting the assignments to which the order
refers. 1 am pleased to avail myself of
this invitation to urge, earnestly urge, in
the name of a patriotic peojde who have
sacrificed hundreds of thousands of lives,
and thousands of millions of' treasure, to
preserve the integrity and union of this
country, that the order be not insisted upon.
It is unmistakably the expressed wish of
the country that Gen. Sheridan should not
be removed from his present command.
This is a Republic where the will of the
people is the law of the land. I beg that
thetr voice may be heard. Gen. Sheridan
has performed his civil duties faithfully and
intelligently. His removal will only beye
garded as an effort to defeat the law of Con
gress. It will be interpreted by the uncon
stitutional element in the South, those who
did all they could to break up this govern
ment by arms and now wish to be the only
element consulted as to the method of re
storing order, as a triumph. It will embol
den to renewed opposition to the will of
the loyal masses, believing that they have
the Executive with them.
The services of Gen. Thomas in battling
for the Union entitle him to some consider
ation. He has repeatedly entered his pro
test against being assigned to either of the
ive Military Districts, especially te being
assigned to relieve Gen. Sheridan. Gen.
Hancock ought not to be removed from
where he is. His Department is a compli
cated one, which will take a new comman
der some time to become acquainted with.
There are military reasons, pecuniary
reasons, and above all patriotic reasons, why
this order should not be insisted on. I beg
toTeferyouto a letter marked "private,"
which I wrote to the President vr hep first
consulted on the subject of change in the
War Department. It bears upon the sub
ject of this removal, and I had hoped would
have prevented -ft. I have the honor to be,
with great respect, your ob't scrvt,
U. S. Grant.
Gen. U. S. A., and Sec'y War, ad interim.
To this communication the President re
plies nnder date of August 19th. He sums
up his reasons for making the change as
follows :
"In assuming that it is the expressed
wish of the people that General Sheridan
should not be removed from his present
command, you remark that this is a repub
lic, based, however, upon a written Consti
tution. That Constitution is the combined
and expressed will of the people, and their
voice is law when reflected in the manner
which that instrument prescribes. While
one of its provisions makes the President
Commander-in-chief of the army and navy,
another requires he shall take care that the
law be faithfully executed. Believing that
a change in command in the Fifth Military
District is absolutely necessary for a faithful
execution of the law, I have issued the or
der which is the subject of this correspon
dence. In thus exercising a power that
inheres in the Executive under the Consti
tution, as Commander-in-chief of the army
and navy, I am discharging a duty required
ot me by the will of the nation as formally
declared in the supreme law oi the land.
By his oath the Executive is solemnly bound
to the best of his ability, to preserve, pro
tect, and defend the Constitution, and al
though in times of great excitement it be
lost to public view, it is his duty without re
gard to consequences to timself, to hold
sacred and enforce any and all of its provis-
. .1 tii ii.i
ions. Any otner course wouia ieaa 10 me
destruction of the Republic, for the Consti
tution once abolished, there would be no
Congress for the exercise of legislative pow
ers, no executive to see that the laws are
faithfully executed, no judiciary to afford to
tbe citizens protection far life, limb and
property. usurpation would inevitably
follow, and a despotism be fixed on the peo
ple in violation of their combined and ex
pressed will.
in conclusion, 1 tan to perceive any mili
tary, pecuniary, and patriotic reasons why
this order should not be carried into effect
You will remember that in the first instance
I did not consider Gen. Sheridan the most
suitable man for the command of the Fifth
Military District Time has strengthened
my convictions upon this point, and has led
to the conclusion that patriotic considera
tions demand that he should be superceded
by an officer who, while he will faithfully
execute the law, will at the same time give
more general satisfaction to the whole peo
ple, white and black, North and South. I
am, General, very respectfully, yours,
"Andrew Johnson.

The political economists of the frontier
are discussing the question of the best means
of exterminating the Indian race. They
suggest in turn systematic killing.startation,
whiskey, depriving them of their horses,
inciting internal wars, and many other in
genious and murderous expedients. They
forget that history establishes the fact that
an Andersonville system is the easiest,
cheapest, surest, and most rapid method of
extermination. And besides, should foreign

The Microscope in a Woolen Facto- '
rt. The following is an extract from a pri
vate letter in the Journal of Commerce:
While at Vernon I stepped into a woolen fac
tory. The most interesting object was the
machine for "napping" cloth, a cylinder,
provided with teeth like a carding machine, i
which, revolving against the cloth, "naps,
it It was, however in the construction of
the machine, and not the mechanism or use,
that I was interested. The teeth referred
to, instead of being of wire as one would
expect, are formed by placing in juxtapo
sition in iron frames great numbers of tea
sels, gigantic huckle-burs, the spears of
which, all curved in the same direction, as
sharp, strong and elastic. Upon inquiry if
the use of these burs was novel or economi
cal, I was told that they had been used a
hundred years, and no artificial substitute
for them had been devised.
The revelations of the microscope explain
the superiority of the teasel over the handi
work of man. Under the microscope, all
nature's points, the points of the thistle, for
example, are absolutely sharp, appearing as
sharp under a magnifying power of 6,000
diameters as to the naked eye ; whereas the
finest points made by man, as those of cam
bric needles, under the microscope are seen
to be b unt It is impossible for man to
make points as sharp as those of the teasels.
We may presume, therefore, that these or-
fyamc cards will be found in factories so
ong as cloth is napped.
A Mystery Explained. Rev. Mr. ,
of Lawrence, Mass., is a bachelor. Noticing
early in the season, that one of his mem
bers, a married lady, had not been at church
for several Sabbaths, he called to ask the
reason. As her reply was somewhat evasive
he surmised that she "had nothing to wear,"
and said, "you are waiting for your Spring
bonnet, I suppose." Weeks passed and
still she did not make her appearance. He
therefore thought he would call again. Ap
proaching the house, he saw her sitting at
the the open window, and blandly remark
ed: "I haven't seen you at church yet;
h&sn't that bonnet come yet?" "Yessir,"
she archly replied, "shall I show it to you ?"
"If you please," answered the wondering
pastor. Holding up a wee bit of a baby,
she said, blushing, "This i9 the Spring bon
net I was waiting for ; did I do right ?"
August Belmont's establishment at New
York is perhaps as striking as any one meets
on the drive ; at least, it is when, as often
he has out his barouche with four horses,
ridden by postillions. At other times he
drives a fine specimen of tandem. Mrs.
Belmont sits by the side of her daughter, in
a rich suit of brown, bonnet of the same
color, trimmed with autumn leaves. Miss
Belmont, in a silver gray cloak and round
hat, grasps with a pair of neatly gloved
hands tho reins which guide a pair of cream
colored ponies.
Two Irishmen were at work in a bog,
when one of them fell on a piece of quick
sand, and began to sink. His companion,
frightvned, nn for assistance, and finding a
farmer begged him to bring a rope and come
before it was too late. "He is already in
up to his ankles," exclaimed the friend in
despair. "Oh," said the fanner, reassured,
"then there is plenty of time." "Not a
moment, for you see he went in head 'first !"

A farmer wrote as follows to a distinguish
