WgEN the secessionists in the Senate of the
trnited States were leaving their posts for the
purpose of plunging the country into civil war,
;Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, then a Senator,
pointing his finger significantly at - Jefferson Da
pis, said: If I were the President I would ar
rest you as traitors, try you as traitors,,and
hang you as traitors!" His course from that
moment to this has been consistent with the
declaration. • It is thiS right. character and de
termination, displayed whenever and wherever
there has been. occasion ,for it, that has given
him the nomination for the Vice Presidency.

Gossrp WITH OUR FRIENEDS.—It is very hot,
and we are greatly disinclined to write, or per

columns ; and besides we have a fellow feeling
fur the poor fellow : • • .
"Respelled sir : Physiologists state that there
are five senses, by . and through which we see,
hear, taste, smell and feelthat these are more
orless acute in each individual, and that in
proportion as one sense id defective, a compen

"My earliest recollections are - associated with

every imaginable description. When six months

hung up 'outside of the window, like an ice

as I began to run aboUt I displayed - it remarka
ble alacrity in testing the comparative-hardness
of my head and that of the chairs and tables I
managed-to tumble down - stairs in much less
time than it took me to go up; I climbed trees
and ladders without auy fear of dizziness, for I
couldn't see how high I was; I took no - account
of curb stones; twice I walked into the mill
dam; thrice was I snatched from under a horse's
belly, and times innumerable, from - in front of
runaway teams; 1 ignored mad dogs, infuriated
bulls and ambushed snakes, whose quickness
rendered them invisible to me ; and kit, though
not least, as my mother thought; I had' a won

,I couldn't, for with' my book beside me on the
bench I could no more have read the printed

an Egyptian obelisk. I never knew when the
master's eye was upOn me; and ever remained
in blissful ignorance, whether furtively munch
ing an apple, on with an innocent face, was
pinching_ my neighbor, until—thwack—came
the rod upon my Atlanteanshoulders. On the
playground, in games that required running, I
was like a bull in a china shop, here dodging
into a-big boy's stomach,, and there against a
little boy's chin. Did I ever try to catch a
ball, it was sure to pass my extended hands and
strike my unsuspicious nose. On 'the skating
pond I was avoided as,if I hadltie itch; and as
I skated on my lonely way, -never failed to pop
into an air hole, if there -was any about. At

The boys joked me, hid ru'y glasses, called me
"sour-krout and spec," said I was a speculator,

"Poly Phemus." I was afraid to fight, for it',l
took off my specs I couldn't see where to strike,
and if I kept them ofil was in mortal terror aa
the idea of having the glasses knocked into my
eyes ; so I had to take all the quips and quirks
as t hey were offered. 1

Naturally bashful and constitutionally
awkward, my nearsightedness now became
positive bugbear to me. I was eternally making
mistakes. - Frequently I gave deadly offence by
taking one lady to church, and accompanying
another home. In. vain have I waited at the
church door for my Boers idol—to see her snap
-Ped up by some fellow that could see. At a
-party I nearly always took home the girl I
did'nt mean to ;and more than once offered my
ann to the old aunt instead of the niece. I
once, Summoning courage, altnesf kissed the
.da . rkey servant girl instead of her young mit
' tress. Did a lady drop her ring, I might as
well have tried to find a needle in a bay-stack,
and if she let her handkerchief full, I ran the
risk iu my blind zeal of picking up her skirts in
mistake. In eating fruit I devotiree worma.and
all with a coolness that disgusfed . my 'clearer

was wonderfully confused byiteking up what I
supposed to be a lady's brown i - eil. I lost many

spent ii - pleasant evening,-by - passing them the
next morning without the slightest recognition.

DEATH OF CAPT.:M(I)HW ELL.—OH Wed
nesday, ot last week Mf. John M. McDowell, of
this place, received a dispatch from Chatta
nooga, without signature, stating that his son,
Capt. Samuel McDowell, (lithe Independent
Pennsylvania Battery, had been killed and was
buried at that place. Efforts were made to
learn through the operator at Chattanooga as
to the author Of the—dispatch and the particu
lars of the, Captain's death; and at last the; sad
intelligence was fully confirmed. - On the 18th
of June Capt.iin McDowell was promoted to
Chief of Artillery of his, division, and on that
day he wrote his fitther from Lost MOuntain,
Ga. In that engagement the rebel Gen:Bishop
Polk was killed by a shell from one of his guns.
On Tuesday, the 28th of June, when Sherman
'made the unsuccessful assault upon the ie.bel
'position, - Captain McDowell was killed ; but
how or under what circumstances his friends
have not learned. They can feel -mil assured
however, that lie fell in the heroic discharge of
his duty. He was ,probably the youngest - Chief
of Artillery in the army—bqing scarcely of age:
and he had won his position solely by his high
soldierly qualities and - Unfaltering gallantry.
Ife will be deeply mourned by his comrades,
arid as widely lamented as he was known. His
remains lie is the National Cemetery at Chat-,
tanooga. Capt. McDowell' is the fourth com
mander of a battery from this cpuety wh o has

What the armies need most now is Onions; and

vegetables. They are anti-scorbutic vend, froM
