TRIMMING TREES— The present is the
proper time to attend to this work, before
the to ascend Iron the roots to
the trunk and limbs, and thus insure a plen
tiful growth of shoots and consequently an
abundant foliage, which, as every house
keeper knows, is a very desirable thing
around one's dwelling during the Millry
months of summer. This month and April
wdl do for preparing and planting out young
trees, but toe latter month is rather too
late for trimming. In this section too little
attention is. paid to a proper time for trim
ming, and too many prune their trees in the
latter part of April and in May when buds
are not only ready to burst, but even are
MUMMIES or THEBES. Messrs Ayer

loose breeches and flowing rohes. Not the
least part of their bulk is.cloth in which bod
ies were embalmed and wound for preservation
three thousand years ago They are now to be
made into paper for Ayer's Almanacs, and are

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NOT A- UNIT.
—We publish below th circular cd 1 U'O. S.
O. Pomeroy, chairman Of the Natiodtf"***-
cutive Committee, for the purpose of show
ing that the opposition to the Democracy are
not a unit in opposition to our time honored
principles. The circular is "strictly private,'
and intended for circulation among • few of
Mr. Chase's friends, yet it may be relied
upon as foreshadowing the opinion of a form
idable opposition to what .ha* been termed
the government. The Democracy have for
nearly three years made charges against Mr.
Lincoln and. his administration which his
own friends now admit to be true. And yet
every Democrat has been denounced with all
sorts of opproprious epithets for saying th e
same thing, and in some cases incarcerated
for months in a dungeon. Tho Republicans
through the chairman of their National
Executive Committee vindicate the .Demo
cracy in verv charge brought against the
administration. It is a timely document
and we hope it will be generally published
WASHINGTON, D. C., February, 1864.

1 hose in behalf of whom this communica
tion is made, have thoughtfully surveyed the

agamsi tie union of influences which wi.'l op

liberty and the dignity and honor ot the na
tion. suffer prnpurti mainly j while the war
may continue t languish during his whole
administration, till the public debt shall be
come a burden too great to be borne.
3- That the patronage of the Government,
through the necessities of the war, has been
so rapidly increased, an<T to such an en.-r
tin-a* extent and so loosely placed as to ren
der the application of the "one term princi
pie" absolutely essential to the er am safety
ot our Republican Institutions-
4. That we find uni ted in Hon. Salmon
P. Chase more of the qualities needed in a
President during the next four years, than
is combined in any other availuble candi
date ; his record, clear and unimpeachable,
showing hiin to be a statesman of rare ability,
and an administrator of the eery highest or
der, while his private charac'er lurnishes the
surest obtainable'giuranty of economy and
purity in the man igement of public affairs
5. That the discussion of the Presiden
tial question, alreay commenced by the
friends of Mr Lincoln, has developed a popu
larity and strength in Mr. Chase, unexpect
ed even to his warmest admirers; and while
we are aware that this strength is at pres
ent unorganized and in no condition to mani
fest its real magnitude, we are satisfied that
it only needs systematic and faithful effort—
to develope it to an extent sufficient to over
come all opposing obstae'es.
For these reasons, the friends of Mr.
Chase have determined on measures which
shall present hi> claims fairly at once to the
country. A central organization has been
effected, which already has its connections
in all the Slates and the object of wnich is
to enable his friends everywhere, most effect
ually to promote his elevi t'on to the Presi

the public are nut agreed, batf a* to* hlh emi
nent prowess as a champion of rogues," there|
is but one opinion. In a section of country
where successful trickery is rather admired
than otherwise, and where no quality i* *3
much valued as "smartness," it was unani
moasiy conceded that there we* none so per
fectly master of tha art* of chicanery and

the most brazen trickster felt himself safe
while the most intricate mazes and sinuosi
ties of rascality were but plain and familiar
paths when ha undertook to tread them. It
was but fair to infer that the experience ac
quired in such a schooling would be of u*k"
to one wh > wished ta indulge in hat specula

Orleans, or to regulate ,h °y #tr tr * le ° f
Norfolk; but on the other hand it couiu
hsrdlv have been expected that Le would
allude to it without reserve. With exquisite
simplicity, however, the hero of Big Bethel
confides to his Iriw.ids as if they were retain
ed by him as '"counsel for the defence,' and
while pleadu.p, quietly suggests how the
Scotch verdict <d "not proven" may be secur
ed. Such at lent seems to be the only fair
construction of a paragraph from a private
letter from hitn to a member of Congress—

Gen. McC lellan Among the Soldiers.
Gen. McC.ellan was present at the recep- j
tiun of the First New York cavalry on the!
18 : h ult., and was received by Ins old Com- I
rades-in-arms with the most lively demons j
tritions of respect and affections. After the
shouts of welcome hud somewhat* subsided
he addressed thetn as follows : * /
"A ty P>tends and Comrades:— l came!
here not to make a speech to you,'bin w
welcome you home ami express to you the
pride I hare always felt in watching jtfjlr

you hare been fighting battles under

you now, conscientioualy and truly, i am
pmud of you in every respect. There is-not
one page of your record—not a line of it—
of which you, your S?at# and your country
may n<>t be proud. I congratulate you on
the patriotism that ao many of you hare
evinced in your desire to re enter the ser
vice. I hope, I pray and I know that your
future career will He as glorious as your
past. I have one hope, and that it that we
may yet serve together some day again-."
At the conclusion of Gen McClellan'a
speech the enthus'tsm of the military pre
sent became very demonstrative. > 'They
crowded around him eagerly, endeavoring to
grasp hia hands,-and ta salute him, and only
by the utmost exertions of 'himself tfiifbf
some persoral friends, was he enabled to
depart from the scene.

rebel by ojjeis of assistance as soon as a
Southern army usa put in the Jield to as

aertion in earnest he is, or ought to be able
to substantiate it by pro toeing the names
and the facta or circutns'ancea going to es
tablish the guilt of the parties. Wa now

, - WHITE BLACK SOLDIERS.
Since it haa become known that the princi
cause of the failure of the Florida expedi
tion occured through the cowardice and bad
'conduct of the negro troop ? the Abolition
journals of New York and elsewhere are ma
king strenuous efforts to relieve them of this
charge, hence they hesitate not to 6ay, that
the negro troopa in endurance and courage
acted far superior to the white troops. They
even charge all manner of blame on Ren Sey
mour the commander of the expedition on
that occasion, all for the purpose of shielding
their black pets. It is enough to arouse the
blood in every white soldiers veins, to see the
efforts made by these radical presses to bo
little tbero, to shield a lot of cowardly, igno
rant and besotted darkies. First they contend
•d that the negro was the equal of the white
soldier, now they not only assert his superi
ority, but make the poor soldier a scape goat
