Bryant's " Song of Wooing."
Bost thou Idly auk to hear
At what gentle seasons
Nymphs relent, when lovers near
Press the tenderest respond ?
Ab, they give their faith• too oft
To the careless wooer;
Miidens' hearts and always soft,
Would that men's were truer !
Woo the fair one, when around
Early birds are singing;
When, o'er all the fragrant ground,
Early herbs are springing:
When the brooked., bank' and grove,
All with blossoms laden,
Shine with beauty, breathe of lore,—
Woo the timid maiden.
Woo her, when, with rosy blush,
Bummer eye is sinking;
When on.rilis that softly gush,
• Mail are softly winking;
When, through boughs that knit the bower,
Moonlight gleams are stealing;
Woo her, till the gentle hour
Wakes a gentler feeling.
Woo her, when autumnal dyes
Tinge the woody mountain ;
When the drooping foliage lies
. In the half•ohoked fountain ;
Lit-the scene, that tells how fast
. Youth is passing over,
Ware her, ere hsr bloom is past,
To secure her lover.
Woo• her, when the north winds call
At the lattice nightly;
When, within the cheerful hall,
Blaze the, fagots brightly ; •
While the wintry tempest round
Sweeps the landscape hoary,
Sweeter in her ear shall sound
Love's delightful story. -

The Tribune, under the' heading "Spirit of

"All the petitions for pardon presented by
rebels breathe the same spirit of unrepenting
faith. in State rights and State supremacy
over the National Union."

There is a great change coming over the
Old Dominion. The late elections have con—

No MORN Rosen lINIZOBIIB.—Gen. Ord, en
the 10th inst., issued the following order: A
sufficient time having elareed since the sur
render of the forces late in rebellion with the
United States for all who were of such forces
to procure ether apparel than their uniform,
it is hereby ordered that no person, after
June 15, appear in public in this department
wearing any insignia of rank of military on •
naval service worn by officers or men of the i
late rebel army. Where plain buttons cannot
be procured those formerly used can be cov
ered with cloth. Any person violating this
order will be liable to arrest.—Richniond Re.
A correspondent of the World, writing from
Charleston, June 10th, says:
"The negroes are in a great btate of disor
ganisation, refusing to work under any orders
coming from the owner of the land. Allotting '
to themselves patches of land, which they are
working in separate bodies, no longer recog
nizing any authority to compel obedience,
they are breaking open barns, stealing rice,
baopn, corn, and provisions, killing the cattle
—in fact, behaving like any highway robbers.
The unfortunate loyal inhabitants are in a
deplorable condition, and no military com
mander with the head or the heart to appre
ciate their sufferings and afford them the pro
tection they hoped for from the flag of their
Rev. Charles Lane, who has just returned
from Charleston, relates an incident concern
ing Jeff. Davis' homehold which has not be
fore appeared in print. In disposing of his
slaves the great traitor committed to the es•
pedal care of Gen. , Baxton a lame negro boy
who was about the same age (some eight or
ten years) of Davis' young son, and who had
been the latter's most familiar companion
from infancy. When the time for separation
came, both lade made the most demenstrative
expressions of attachment; literally being
from each other's arms, crying bitterly,
and soon after the colored boy had been
placed on board another vessel he jumped
overboard, in order to go back to "Bob
A N2ollo'll OPINION or FILNIDOX.—WO were
very much amused, a few days back, at bear
ing an old darkey (who had been of the opin
on that to be free was the height of bliss),
giving his " opinion " of what he thought
freedom was, after having tried it for a few
weeks. He was giving advice to some of his
"colored brethren," and said, " stay wid your
massa and work, he'll feed and clods you, but
you cum to town and gite freedom, 'tie like
Coated. money, de more you hsb, de wus it
is."—Petersbury Nem.
Among others said to have come out in
favor of negro suffrage in Virginia as the only
hope of the loyal, are Judges Brown, Hawks
burst, Sneed, lawyers Beach, Hill and the
Watson's, all of whom ere thoroughly disgust
ed with the present administration of Gov,
Pierpont. The Legislature, which was se—
cretly called together, according to the play
of secessionists in days past., turns out to be
the late Legislature of the restored govern- .
ment of Virginia and not the Legislature
under secession control. The old Pierpont
Legislature consisted, or consists, of five Sea•
store and eight or nine Representatives.
Three of the Senators are right and two
fishy." The Rouse of Representatives ere
of the same character, comparatively. The
true men are disgusted with the whole thing,
Gov. Pierpont included, and will not go to
Richmond, so that only the few of Southern
proolivities will be in favor of his projects.
The Only one whio has gene from the counties
of Aletandria and Fairfax is Reuben John—
eon, of Alexendrii; whose conduct Is' well
known to the loyal, and of which we have at
example in his persistantly attending the ser—
vice of a clergyman Who, during the war, re—
fused to pray for the President, and who was
rejected from Christ Church parsonage for
rank disloyaity.Tribune Cot.
The Richmond Republic 'of the lfith says :
The officers of the Federal Court ere now In
the city, preparing business for 'the term
which will be held in October next. The poli
oy seems to be to proceed against the prop
erty, real and personal, of alt persons inolud‘
ed in the fourteen classes who are denied the
benefits of the general amnesty by the late
proclamation. Nearly three hundred different
properties are already embraced in these pro
ceedings, and the number is of course increas—
ing rery rapidly. - The tendency of this state
of things is of course rery prejudicial to the
business of the city, which in many depart
ments is brought to a stand still. It Is stated
that seventy—five pieces of property in Rich
mond hare been already libelled for confisca
tion, which is only a beginning. The pro ,
needing is against the property itself, the
owner not being made a party to the cause.
Some of the sutlers who followed the army
and rushed into Richmond with their wares,
in anticipation of doing a tremendous busi
ness, on the supposition that the Southern
people had plenty of good money, are closing
out, one by one, and returning to the . North,
wiser, if not richer men.
The accounts received from all parts of the
South depict a condition of distress such as
might naturally have been expected from the
exhaustion of a great war, the ruin of their
currency, and the great social upheaval which
changes the whole face of Southern society ;
but Ouch as makes a most affecting impression
when exhibited in the saddening details fur
nished by journalists and travelers. Thous
ands are dying of starvation; hundreds of
thcusands famishing with hunger; in exten
sive districts industry and production are so
arrested, that the harvest of the present
year will not suffice to put an end to the fam
At a meeting of the people held at Centres.
Tulle, on the 16th alt., Col. Sheffield, of the 48th
Alabama, in a speech, said :. " I have done all
I could to establish a Southern Confederacy.
I carried my musket for three years. I am
whipped. I have been whipped for twelve
months. The Southern Confederacy does not
exist in the land to-day. I am like an erring
child who has been whipped by his father."
Major A. C. Baird said : "We have met to
bury the tomahawk, to smoke the calumet of
peace. All of us ought to reverence that gov
ernment 'which we could not destroy, and to
which we have been compelled to submit. I
shall do it cheerfully."

Jeff. Davis_ is described as having lost his
appetite and his sleep. Somebody who saw
him recently reports " him sitting in hie bed,
his brow farrowed, his cheeks sunken, his
eyes listless, gazing on the blank walls of his
cell es-if he saw a great horror before him
and a pallid terror behind him. His nerves
are gone ; he starts at the slightest noise like
a fevered child, his physical organism is
prostrated almost beyond recuperation. His
physicians, after oonsultatio imposed abso—
lute quiet in his easement, and
now the - guards of the prisoners pace his cell
in slippers, that their footfalls may not give
a sound. The prisoner never reads, never
talks-except to utter querulous complaints,
and this last he indulges in much less fre
quently than he did."
AN A PPRICIATIVE Naoao.—Last summer,
Henry, a contraband, paid a visit to the
city of Philadelphia, and on his return to
the army was in the habit of giving a daily
account of the wonders he had seen in
tJat place. Oue morning his master hap
pened to ask him if be had been to the
theater during his absence.
" Oh, yes, ash," was the reply ;'" L3'e
been to the theatre a good many times.
Still I don't like the theater as well as
the opera."
This was said with a sentimental air
that reflected infinite credit on the
" DG you admire the opera very much ?"
said the lieutenant.
" Very much indeed," answered Henry.
" I goes every night when-I possibly can."
" Which sort of piece do you like best,
—the German or the Italian ?" was the
next inquiry.
" Don't know sir," was the answer ;
" but I always likes that kind of pieces
where de young lady -jumps through de
It was evident from this, that Henry
had confounded the opera with the circus.
_ Coos. Werra.—At .this season of the
year a cool draught of water becomes a
luxury. By the following method water
may be kept in a simpre and inexpensive
manner, almost as cool as ice. Let the
jar, pitcher or earthen vessel used for
water, be surrounded with one or more
folds of coarse cotton, to be kept con
stantly wet. The evaporation of the water
will carry off the heat from the inside, and
reduce it to a low temperature. In India
this expedient is very common. It saves
the ice bill and is more healthful than ice
Canteens are covered upon this princi
ple. Mechanics and laborers, in this
manner, can always have, with very little
trouble, a good supply of cool water con
stantly on hand. Try it.
A Plitscnsn's Joel.—When preachers
do indulge in jokes, they generally let off
good 'uns. Here is the last. Away down
East, 'a clergyman was recently charged
with having violently dragged his wife
from a revival meeting, and compelled
her to go home with him. The clergyman
let the story travel along until he had a
fair opportunity to give it a broadside.
Upon being charged with the offense, he
replied as follows :
"In the first place, I never attempted
to influence my wife in her views, nor her
choice of a meeting. Secondly, my wife
has not attended any of the meetings for
any purpose whatever. In the third place,
I have not myself attended the meetings
for any purpose whatever. To conclude,
neither my wife nor myself have any in
clination to go to those meetings. Finally,
I never had a wife."
It is said that women first resorted to
tight lacing to show m ankind how well
they could bear squeezing.
The Empty Cradle. .
In the loaeiy quiet chamber,
There's an empty cradle bed,
With a print upon the pillow
Of a baby's, shining head.
'Tis a fair and dainty cradle,
Downy soft, with pillows white,
But within the blanket, folded •
Lies no little form to night.
Once the mother sat beside it,
When the day was growing dim;
And her pleasant voice was gaging
Soft and low a cradle hymn.
Now there's no more Reed, of singing
When the evening shadows creep,
For the cradle bed is empty,
And the baby gone .to sleep.
Little head that used to nestle
In the pillnws white and soft—
Little hands, whose restless fingers
Folded there in dreams so oft—
Lips we pressed with fondest kisses—
Eyee we praisedlor purest ray—
Underneath the churchyard daises
They have hidden all away.
Ah, tie empty, useless Oradie !
We-will put it out of eight,
Lest our hearts should grieve too sorely
For the little one to—night. _
We will think how oafs forever
In the better field above,
That young lamb for which we eorrbw
Resteth now in Jesus' love.
[trove the lianisbazg Patrioßl
Ballots and aulleta.
The New York Tribune says, senten
tiously : •
"If we give the negro a bayonet, why
can we not give him a ballot ? If he gives
his life to save the country, should we not,
give him a voice in its management ?"
It does not follow that every negro who
has held a bayonet has served the coun
try ; nor does it appear that every negro
who " gave his life to save the country "
—that is, who went into the army—did so
through patriotism. Perhaps the least
said about negro patriotism, in the face of
the bounties offered, the equality prom
ised, the persuasion used and the force
employed to get up a black army, the
better for both the negro and his admir
ers. As to the military service performed
with the bayonet by the black troops,•in
consideration of which the ballot is claim
ed for them, the country remains in very
dark (if not blissful) ignorance; in fact,
to use the current phrase, " they can't
see it." Taking their into con
sideration, there could not probably be
selected from any of the armlet, of the'Be
public an equivalent number of white
troops who have performed less service.
Perhaps:this may have been owing to the
fact thal" that class of troops, through
special favoritism, were always kept in
reserve, in holiday trim—to grace reviews
and dress parades, and to take quiet pos
session of cities and battle fields after the
white veterans had defeated and routed
the foe. Whatever may have been the
reason, we ask if such is not the truth?
If denied, will the negro suffrage advoa
cafes please contrast the services of the
white and black soldiers, numbers with
numbers, and show wherein the latter
have been superior ?
It is well known that the late Abolition
Congress passed a law giving to the black
soldiers the same pay, rations, clothing,
bounties and pensions as were enjoyed by
the white troops ; and besides this, it was
ordered that camp duties and laboring
service should be shared alike by white
and black soldiers—thus granting privi
leges to the blacks never before.enjoyed
by them. bad yet, after thus giving to
an inferior race. (and who dare deny that
the Southern negro is greatly below the
most humble class of white man, both in
intelligence and natural abilities) such
extraordinary and unlooked for privileges,
it is proposed to grant them—in consid
eration of their mythical services with the
bayonet—still greater favors ; full citizen
ship and social and political equality.
Is this just to the white soldiers ? What
will the negro suffrage advocates propose
to grant to the white veterans, upon whose
shoulders have rested the burdens of the
fight, as an offset to these favors to be
bestowed upon the blacks ? Are ihe negro
troops to be the only gainers ? Are they
to receive all the material benefits that
the whites have received, and are they
then to be burnished up with glories stolen
from the white soldiers, in order that they
may go to the ballot•box and oppose the
cardinal principles in the political faith of
those very white veterans to whom they
owe not only their freedom, but that very
privilege of suffrage which they will thus
pervert? It will not do: If let alone by
designing politicians the negro will be
content with freedom, and wilt not ask to
be made the tools of ambitions dema
gogues at•the expense of the veterans who
have fought out-freedom for them.
B.ibies are of two kinds, male and fe
male, and are usually put up in packages
of one, though sometimes two, ,in which
case they are called twins, when nearly of
the same age. They are not confined to
any particular locality, but are found
plentifully distributed over all parts of
the inhabited countries. Their ages are
various, and have a wide .range. We have ,
known them as young as 'tie easy to cal
culate time on a watch dial, and then
-again we have seen them where they have
acquired the healthy age of twenty-five,
with a fair prospect of advancing still fur

Everybody labors under the delusion
that all babies are gool for, is to kiss,
consequently to see one is to kiss it. We
cannot recollect of ever finding ourselves
in the presence of a baby, but what the
fond mother would say to it, " Now be'a
good little dewy and give the gentleman
a nice sweet kiss." `Of course we accept it,
though kissing ain't our forte. We are
willing to kiss a pretty girl occasionally
for her mother's sake ; or even for her own,
rather than have any trouble. We under.;

persons differ from us in regard to kissing ;
