CITY CLERKS . AND COUNTRY. GIRLS
correspondent of the New York Bead
.advises city young men to marry country girls
whereupon the lieral4 comments editorially as
. follows: Nothing g more charming than a
lovely and intelligent girl, wilt:, has lived with
birds and flowers. That such creatures should
consent to wed poor city clerks and exchange
the freedoin of the country for tbe confined life
of the citris strange, but their anxiety to be
'courted by. city Men is another proof of the
generosity of the female sex. -We are told by
"Audrey" that there are thousands of young
ladies in. the country only waiting, like roses,
to be gathered and transplanted to bloom in
city homes. All that is said of their fitness to
be good wives is true, for the country.girl is
generally independent, self-rel ian totems tom ed.
to work and happy, and - competent to take
charge of a household. A girl, brought up in
habits of economy and simplicity is likely to
make a better wife for a poor man than one to
. whom the luxuries of the city have become al
' most the necessaries of life. But "Audrey"
must not suppose that the domestic virtues
blossoms only in villages and farms. In New.
York there are maily young women of intelli
gence and culture who support themselyes by
daily toil and depend upon no man for heir . ).
T hey would be good wives to young men with
small means, but who wish to establish happy
homes of - their own. This, however, should
not prevent young gentlemen who are in
search of a wife Com acting " upon "Audrey's"
excellent, suggestions, and we have. her assur
ance that there are not likely to be many re
Meals. Indeed, the anxiety of "Audrey" to
make proposals popular is so plain that it re:
calli . the old ballad:—
"If yOulhonld desire', for to marry, _ • ,
• And pity this sorrow and woe,
I desire you, young man, not 40 tarry."

TEE NEWEST STORY ABOUT HIS BURIAL;
After a lapse•of twelve years there are still
those Who doubt' Wilt John Wilkes Booth, the
assassin of Lincoln, suffered death for his great
crime, and to . "settle"- 'their no less than for
general information we publish the "following
story of Qaptain Oliver- P. Leslie, an old friena
of Lincoln and now a resident ofPittsburg,who
has told it to a reporter of that city:
Captain Leslie was one of the earliest friends
of Me. Lincoln's youth, and it so happened
that he was in' the vicinity of Ford's theatre on
the night when he received his death wound,
and was one of the few who :hed reached the
door when the president was brught 'out -on
bis litter and carried across the street to Ben
nett's, where he' died. Captain Leslie sagsl that
he had Often seen, Booth act , in'Cincinnati and
at other points and had boarded i with at the
Metropolitan hotel , e itt Waihiniton for weeks
before thS close of his career: In.the corridors
of the hoiel he trequOntly4im ',l3ooth put his
hands Into his , box-coat pocl;ets and pull them
• • ,
00, filled with gold, exclai ming , made
IMudred thousand :dollars in 'lle' specula-
tine and I will strike a' lead in less than a
month that will bring me in it,' ;Onion." .Thits
about ten dikys previous to the assassination
and Captain Leslie says his ,attention - was at=
tracted to the circumstance by its' repetition
,tind by subsequent events. From his previous
knowledge of the maws, p6rsOnal apPearance,
he is positive beyond doubt that the dead body
'of John' Wilkes Booth, which was bronghr
from - Abe scene of derith' by Colonel and Lieut.
Baker, was on the monitor Montauk ,at five
o'clock on the morning after he. was killed by
Boston Corbett, and
_that ,it ;remained there'
under gnard for about forty-two hGurs there
after. Atter the bpdy was plaCed on the bo t at,
a guard of six naval ()illegal of •Whorn Captain
Leslie was .one, was -sent to watch it.
Captain Leslie. and Captain Willough
by were in the same , relief. and served
two hours on. • and • fours off while
the body remained on board the monitor.
While these 'men were standing guard the
multitude was allowed to view the body, pass:
ing on to, the stern of the 'Montauk by a bridge
of scows. and off at the' ow in the same, man,-
ner; atter looking at the . *remains for a fe*
seconds. Among these were many persons who
had known Booth more or less intimately, in
eluding abaft three hundred actors. The cap
tain relates the instance of a large, fine looking
man, having the appearance of an army officer,
who, in passing. placed 'the palm ot his hand '
on the forehead of the dead assassin, and in ,
yoked the most,'liightftil imprecation ,on the
soul of the departed. ' ' . 1
During the time the * body lay on. the Mon.
tank several propositions were made for ;the
final disposition of the body, which were voted
upon by the five hundred or one_thousand offi
cers aboard. Of these Captain • Leslie remem
bers but two or three of the more. remarkable.
One was that two of the wildest 'steeds quit
could be obtained should be harnessed together
and chained to Booth's heels and
_taken (o tlie
Bladensburg dueling ground, and there tuirted
loose to run.until the body was dragged to
pieces. A gentleman who had the appearance
of a foreign officer proposed that a t4er
should be built from `three •hundred to five hun
dred feet high, and that therenpon should.[ be
placed a cauldron in which the body should 'lie
until it was washed away by the snit and stkin
and destroyed by the birds of the air. It was
also suggested that this.tower he left standing
for ages as a memorial of the infamous deed of
the murderer. These and other proposi ions
*ere rejecte , i, and it was - finally agreed tde-
I liver the body to the two Bakers who cap tnred
the traitor, to dispose of in such a Manner, as
they might be directed. The body, which
the end of the forty-two hours it had lain -on
board the Montauk was in an sdvanced state
of decomposition, was accordingly given into
the custody of the Bakers, who were: required
to take thcfollowing oath before taking it in
charge:. ' .
"You,gentlemen; being already sworn Officers
of-the United States, do further swear that you
will take the dead body of John -Wilkes Booth, r
and dispose of. it in a manner known only to
yourselves, and that you never will coniranni— I
sate to any . otb'ers the whereabouts, or drsposi:
tion ot the body; either by words, signs, hiero
glyphics, or in any other manner, and that you
will not talk ot it to yourselves, lest - you be
The oath having been administered by the,
proVost marshal, Captain Stone, addressing
the Bakers, - added, "and not desecrate loyal
soil:with his body!' The yemins were then_
taken away, and their disposition is of course
only , a matter of speculation; Captain .Leslik
