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:

to pay all taxes.

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
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

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
"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.
"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
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
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.
Kind wOrds I They are blessed things.
Speak them, children, every day. Scatter
them like sunbeams everywhere. They
will bless others, and then return to bless
your own heart. Kind words forever

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?
They are those who seek to break it ;
Judge them by the fruits they bear,
Hatching hate between its sections,
Bringing forth fraternal war,
Under cover of religion ;
Such as these the traitors.
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.
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. Of
course, on the top of seats some jumped to
the bottom, some fell through, some were
caught and suspended while falling, and a
great many cut their way through the can
vas. At this juncture the elephant broke
out among the people and created a terrible
excitement. Tho rain was falling iu tor
rents, the lightning flashed and the thunder
crashed. Men, in their fright, ran against
the ticket wagon, over ladies, to and fro.
Many of the ladies screamed, fainted and
fell• After the storm had abated the great
canvass was explored, but no one was found
to be seriously injured.

The great Democratic ratification meeting
which was addressed by Hampton, Kershaw,
and others recently, was held in Columbia,
S. C., in the open air, in the very midst of
the ruins created by Sherman's army—au
ill:unease opening in the very heart of the
city—and covered with fire—scarred walls
and chimneys, as the victorious army left it.
It was known that Blair commanded the
famous Seventeenth Corpse, which swept
Columbia, and yet this vast assemblage of
Carolina's sons, including Hampton, whose
own house is among the ruins, rent the air
with cheers for Seymour and Blair. Why?
Because Blair fought for a Constitutional
Union, and not for a military negro govern
ment.. hie is for the same Union still, and
these people—having accepted the lines of
the war—now stand on his platform, and
ask no more than constitutional liberty.—
