Facts for Workingmen. "While the producing industries of the country are unjustly taxed, and the almost intolerable burdens of the war rest upon those who fought the battles and made the sacrifices, those who tilled lands to produce supplies, and those who labored in the workshops, the organs of the Radicals are asserting that the bondholders are the men who pay all our revenues. They sneeringly say that "uot one laboring man in every hundred pays a penny of taxes to the gov ernment directly." True, the laboring man does not pay his taxes directly to the gov ernment, but every man of sense knows that the consumer pays the tax upon every arti cle manuti►ctured by capital. A practical working man, a few days since, handed us the following, which in itself is a volume of argument to show that the poor man does pay taxes: Radical legislation requires the consumer to pay all taxes. it taxes the hat on your bead. The boots on your feet. The clothes on your person. The food you eat. The tea and coffeeyou drink.' The pot it is cooked in. The cup you drink it out of. The implements on your farm. The tools you work with. The paper you write on. The pen and ink you use. The apers and books you read. The f urniture in your house. The gas or oil you burn. The coal you consume. The stove you burn it in. The match you light it with. The medicine you take. The tobacco you smoke. The pipe you smoke it in. The dishes on your table. All you oat off them. The laboring man of the country, who owns a little house and lot, which he has earned by toiling from early morning to night, pays State, county, school, and road tax upon it; while his next door neighbor, who is a bondholder, owning $50,000 in the bonds, pays no taxes whatever, draws inter est in gold, laughs at his unfortunate neigh bor, who has his money in a little home If the masses of the laboring men desire the equal taxation of every specie. of prop- erty according to its real value—government bonds and other securities included—if they want one cut rency for the government and the people, the laborer and the offiee-halder, the pensioner and the soldier, the producer and the bondholder, they will not vote the Radical ticket, but will vote for that of the Democracy. A MAnnixo lady who was in the habit of spending most of her time in the society of her neighbors, happened one day to be taken ill, and sent her husband in great haste for a physician. The husband ran a short distance, and then returned, exclaim• ins, "My dear, where shall I find you when I come back ?" A TEACUIS said to a little girl at school ; "If a naughty girl should hurt you, like a good girl, you would forgive her, wouldn't you?" "Yon, ma'am," she replied, "if I couldn't catch her!"

I=l A Thrilling Sketch. In the year 1836, the inhabitants living in district bordering on Rock River, in the northern part of the State of Illinois, were much incensed by the depredations of a band of horse thieves who infested that portion of the country. Every exertion had been made to discover the men engaged in the nefarious business, but hitherto in vain, and valuable animals were stolen, and lost to their owners, in defiance of the utmost vig ilance and care. During such a state of affairs, the citizens residing in the region of the thieves became thoroughly excited, and were wound up to such a pitch of indignation, that a body of men wore formed styled Rangers, whose ex plicit duty was to expunge the district of all suspicious characters, and endeavor to put a stop to their depredations. Shortly after this baud commenced oper ations word was conveyed to the leader of the Rangers that a valuable horse, which had been stolen the night previous, could then be found on the premises of a man named Burt, locked up in the stable. Al though Burt heretofore had been looked upon as an honest man and an upright citi zen, yet the captain deemed it his duty to at least examine his farm and learn the truth or falsity of the report. Accordingly he summoned some half dozen of his Rangers to meet him at a spot not far from Burt's house, and before morn ing set out for the same place himself. Day light was hardly discernible in the cast, and the hazy light of coming dawn had not yet penetrated the bottom, where the suspected man resided, as the Rangers, charged with the fearful mission of life or death, silently approached and surrounded the dwelling. Leaving three of the band to guard the en trance, the captain opened the door and found the missing horse, as had been stated, safely stalled inside. Not a lingering doubt now remained of Burt's guilt, and with a stern determination to make an example of him that would de ter others from a like transaction, the Ran gers returned to the house. In the mean time Burt had risen, and upon coming to the door was seized by those in waiting, and upon demanding the reason was informed by them that a stolen animal was found in his stable, and that be was considered a thief. Muttering something about "be knew it would come to this at last," he quietly sub u►itted to whatever his captors had in store for hint. A short consultation was held, and it was resolved to hang the criminal upon a large elm tree that grew in front of his own house, it being thought that such an act would strike terror and dismay into the ranks of the horse thieves. Burt had asked half an hour to prepare for his death, and the sun had risen in all its golden majesty ere the total moment had arrived which would launch him into eter nity. In vain his grayheaded father and mother pleaded for his life, with trembling tongues—they tottered forth from the dwel ling, and kneeling in suppliant mood to his apparently merciless captors. In vain had the wife of his bosom knelt in tears of agony, and entreated them as husbands to spare his life, for each Ranger had suffered more or less in person, and they deemed the ex ample absolutely necessary to deter others, and it seemed as though Burt must die. The dreadful preparations were complet ed—the half hour had expired—and the criminal was arranged under the limb of a stout elm, over which a rope was thrown, one end being noosed around the prisoner's neck, and the other held by three of the Rangers. Then came a moment of dreadful silence, that awful stillness which proceeds the launching of a fellow•being into eternity— while the three strong men, who held the rope's end, gazed fixedly upon the captain for the signal. It was given by raising the right arm; and already the noose was tight ening around the doomed man's neck, when the wife of Burt issued forth from the house holding an infant a little more than a year old in her arms. Rushing forward, she full on her knees directly in front of the captain, and raising the child, with arms outstretched, towards him, she exclaimed in tones that would have pierced a heart of steel— "lf you will not spare him for the sake of his grayhaired sire, or the wife of his bosom, spare him in the name of God for the sake of his infant boy 1" Another dead silence reigned like a pall over the spot ; then, as though inspired by heaven itself, the child also stretched out its little anus towards its father and exclaimed, in a voice heard by all, the single word ; "Papa 1" And then, as though despairing of euo• coo, huddled into its mother's bosom, and burst into a sobbing cry. It was more than the Rangers could stand, and, after a abort oonsultation, the rope wail taken from the (Minima's neck, and the band left the spot; end Hurt became a re. formed man through the powerfkl effects of his "b/lanes Appeal."

Par eon Brownlow foam it was a message to him, A Wedding' Night Shirt It wasn't hardly the fair thing that the boys did to Joe Thompson, the night he was married, but the temptation was irre sistible. They could not bare helped it to save their lives. I'll tell you how it was. Joe was about the most fancy dressed buck in town—over nice and particular—a per fect Miss Nancy in manners, always putting on airs, and more dainty and modest than a girl. Well, when his wedding day came, he was dressed trunk empty, and his pants, especially fitted him as candle moulds, and his legs candles, run into them. Tight was no name for them. Their set was immense, and he was prouder than ahalfa dozen pea cocks. "Aren't they nice, boys?" he asked of the two boys who were to be groomsmen, and saw that he threw himself away after the most approved manner. "Stunningl Cleorgeous I" replied Tom Bennett. "Never saw equal to them. But 1 say, Joe, aren't they the least bit too tight? It staikes me that you will have some difficulty in bending, won't you?" "Pahaw, no, they are as easy as an old glove. See I" To prove the matter, be bent down so as to touch his patent leathers, when crack, crack, followed like twin reports of a revel. Ver. "Thunder I" exclaimed Joe, as he put his band behind and found a rent in the eassi mere from stem; to stern. "Thunder I the pants have burst and what shall I do ?" "I should rather think they had," an swered Tom, getting purple in the face, as he endeavored to:control his laughter; "but there is no time to get another pair. Itonly wants half an hour to the standing up time, and we have got a mile to go—carriage wait ing too." "What shall I do, oh ! what shall I do?" "I'll tell nu what, if mine would fit you you should have them and welcome, but they are about a mile too big ; they would set like a shirt on a bean pole. I see no way but to have them mended." "Who can I get to do it, Tom ?" "Well, T am something of a tailor, and can fix them an they won't show. Hold on a minute, and I'll get a needle and thread." "Can you ? May heaven bless you !" "Off with your coat," commanded Tom, as he came back. "Now lay yourself over on the bed and I'll fix you in shortorder." The command was obeyed ; the pants mended ; the coat tails carefully pinned over, so as to conceal the 'distress for rent,' and all went merry as the marriage bell un til Joe followed the bride to the nuptial couch. There was only a dim light in the room, but it enabled Joe, as he glanced bashfully around, to see the sweetest face in the world the rosy cheeks and bright lips, the lovely and loving blue eyes, and the golden curls just peeping from out the snowy sheets, and he extinguished it altogether, and hastened to disrobe himself. Off came coat, vest, fancy necktie and collar, boots and socks in a hurry, but somehow the pants stuck.— The more he tried the more they wouldn't come, and he tugged vainly for half an hour. "Thunder ! muttered Joe. "What's the matter, dear?" cause in the softest of accents from the bed, where some body was wondering if he was ever coming, and, forgetting his accustomed bashfulness, he blurted out: "Moll, that cursed Tom Bennett has sew• ed my pants, drawers, shirt and undershirt all together I" "It is too bad ! wait a moment my dear." A little stookinglete foot peeped out first, then 3 ruffled night dress, the lamp was light ed, a pair of scissors found, and Joe releas ed ; and althougt he denies it, Torn Bennet swears that his wedding shirt was of the shortest possible extent, reasoning a poste riori. Speak Kindly to Ulm, A farmer once saved a very poor boy from drowning. After his restoration he said to the grateful fellow : "What can I do for you, my boy ?" "Speak a kind word to me sometimes," replied the boy, as the tears gushed from his eyes. "I ain't got a mother like some of them." 1 kind word ! Think of it. That farmer had it in his power to give that boy money, clothes, playthings, but the poor fellow craved nothing so much as a kind word now and then. If the farmer had ever so little heart the boy must.eertainly have had his wish granted, Al land word I You have many such spoken to you daily, and you don't think much of their value; but that poor boy in your village, at whom every other boy laughs, would think he had found a treasure if some one would speak one kind word to him. Suppose you speak it! The next time you meet him, instead of laughing at him, speak kindly to him. Then watch him and see how he looks. See if his eyes do not brighten, and him lips smile. Try it.

Strike a good blow for the Union, Ye whose hearts with passion glow ! Young men panting for distinction, Lead the battle on the foe. Ask ye who despise the Union ? Ask ye who the traitors are?

Beat the long roll of the Union, Wake the guanls and man the walls; Drop the drawbridge of the Union, Brains for ballots, votes for balls. An Epleode In the Uletory of General Butler. When in New Orleans Butler was passing at the bead of some troops, the residence of a very respectable young lady, who, with some lady friends were enjoying the cool air of a balcony. This young lady, whose name we omit for a reason that will soon appear, was one of those impulsive, light-hearted, joyous creatures, whose life is made up of smiles and more demonstrative outbursts of joy. Just as Butler himself was opposite, some remark was made, or something visible to the eye of a mirth-provoking character, caused her to break out in a ringing laugh. Butler stopped short his horse, and looking up said, in his rough and repulsive style: "What are you laughing at?" Surprised at the question, and insulted by the manner in which it was asked, the young lady in stantly ceased her laugh, but made no re sponse. Butler turned away, but had pro ceeded but a short distance, when the same clear ringing laugh met the oar, and turning again, he with still more brutal insolence demanded : "Young woman, what are you laughing at ?" There was no mistaking his meaning this time, and the hot blood of the sunny South flushed to the cheek of the maiden as she scornfully replied, "None of your business, sir." Butler, with a threat ening gesture, but no reply, rode away. An hour or two after this a file of soldiers ap peared at the residence of the young lady with an order for her arrest. She was torn from the bosom of her flintily, taken to the military prison or guard-house, and there kept confined until the men in whose society she was thrown, either as keepers or fellow prisoners, accomplished her ruin. These facts can be sustained by parties now resid iug at Kendall, Orleans county, N. Y., or by Dr. 'McLane, or wife, and others of New Orleans, the latter having witnessed the transaction related above, from the opposite side of the street. EXCITEMENT AT A CIRCUS. -A thousand persons gathered under a circus tent is Ilemingsburg, Ky., on the 30th ultimo, and the riders were about to enter the ring, when a rainstorm arose. At first, there was but littie excitement among the spectators, but when the stakes of the outer canvass gave way, and the immense center-pole of the large one commenced to sway and groan, the sides to flop and give way—when the lions commenced to growl and roar, the ele phant to swing his large proboscis around, and the horses to neigh and stamp—the confusion was indescribable, and the ex citement the wildest we ever saw. Every body rushed pell well for the entrance, gentlemen and ladies in • confused mass, calling alternately for help and friends.
