We cut the following from the Knicker
bocker. It is good for a laugh at any rate
The last stanzas we think especially rich.
" It is not that she bade me go,
And said I'd better stop my calling,
It is not that she answered " No,”
As loud as could be—short of bawling ;
It was not that she slammed the door,
And set her nasty lap-dog on me;
Oh no ; a greater, keaner grief
Weighs down my heart and preys upon me.
I cannot bear to see her go
And promenade with other fellers ;
I cannot bear to see her walk
On rainy days, 'neath their umbrellas,
To see such things a going on,
Excites my virtuous indignation ;
It makes me swear as one might say,
In vulgar phrase, "like all creation."
To see her seated in a chair,
With half a dozen fops about her;
And hear that fool Augustus swear
He " can't exist a day without her,"
'Tie this which makes my withered hopes
Fall thick and fast like leaves in Autumn,
And cause my poor heart to beat
Like a young bear when dogs have caught him.
What if her father is the Squire,
And Pm a briefless-laver-devil
She needn't cut me in the stieet—
It wouldn't hurt hei to be civil.
But ah I my heart-strings are a lute
On which her hand unfeeling lingers ;
Well be it so! the tune is sad,
But then 'Us played by Beauty's fingers.
Enough! enongh ! I've lost the maid,
My mind is bordering on distraction ;
Yes, yes—l'll leave this classic shade,
And seek a wilder field of action ;
Far in the distant Texan land,
In war's proud ranks I'll seek for glory,
And then perhaps in later years
My name will sound in verse and story.
I resign thee every token,
Which thou gave'st unto me;
• And the ties of love are broken
That once bound me unto thee ;
May no sorrow ne , er invade thee
For the changes thou hast wrought;
This fond heart will ue'er upraid thee
Though its ruin thou bast wrought.
I have cherished thee—thee only,
With a miser's doating care;
Now thou leav'st me sad and lonely
To a life of dark dispair.
Coulds't thou see me thus heartbroken;
Doom'd to sadness and to pain;
Thou would'st give me back each token
And return to me again.
Thou had'st riches—thou had'st beauty,
I know well how they are prized;
I had but my love and duty,
These thou coldly host dispised.
Yet how oft did'st thou assure me,
Worldly wealth was not thine aim;
And if fortune strove to lure thee
Thou would'st love me still the same.
Tho' thy feeble vows were shaken;
Tho' their power was lost o'er me,
And I feel that tho' forsaken,
I can love but only thee.
Leave me not then thus heartbroken,
Doona'd to madness and to pain;
Give me back each tender token—
And return to me again.
learn by . telegram from Washington,
that a Vermont Gentlemen addressed a
communication to the President of the
United States, announcing the advent
of three sons at one birth, and request
ing names for them. The President it
seems, was at a little loss to know which
Cabinet Minister to consult on the oc
casion, but finally referred the matter to
the Secretary of War, who 'promptly
forwarded the desired appellation. We
do not exactly see the propriety of this
reference to the War Department, un
less the boys are to receive the appoint
ment of cadets. If the Postmaster-Gen
eral was not just now too much occu
pied in superintending the safe delivery
of the mails, we should have supposed
his department the more natural chan
nel for such correspondence. The child
ren were named Abraham Lincoln,
Gideon Wells, and Simon Cameron.—

ear A son of Old Neptune enlisted in
the First Rhode Island Battery. He
was picked out as one of the riders, and
not long since his horse unseated him.
The commanding officer came up and
reprimanded him, and asked him sternly
if he did not know how to ride ? He un
hesitatingly said, " No." " What did
you then enlist for ?" asked .the Captain.
To which the sailor promptly replied,
"To shoot Secessionists, not to break
colts." The reply so amused the officer
that he rode off smiling.
fir " Is anybody waiting on you ?"
said a polite dry goods clerk to a girl
from the country, "Yes, sir," said the
blushing damsel, " that's my feller oat
side. He wouldn't come in."
-Cr Money and time have both their
value. He who makes bad use of the
one will never make good use of the

MRS, BATON.-Of Mrs. Eaton, the
widow of Gen. Eaton, Secretary of War
under Jackson, who figured so largely
in the Spring bf 1831, when the first
cabinet of Old Hickory was dissolved,
the Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Journal says : "This lady is
now residing in this city, having recent
ly married an Italian dancing master, of
the mature age of 26. The acquaintance
sprang up through his teaching her
grandchildren. The newly married
pair are represented on canvass, in their
parlor, her head reclining on his bosom
in a very loving attitude, and, as the
artist has given her "form and features,''
one would not suppose her to be over
thirty years of age. She is in affluent
circumstances. is very fond of company,
has fine conversational powers and dis
penses hospitality with a liberal hand."
York Commercial Advertiser c.)mpiles a
list of the losses on both sides since
the outbreak of the rebellion, commenc
ing with the attack of the Massachusetts
troops in Baltimore, and embracing the
numerous fights and skirmishes that
have since occurred, and the result is as
follows :—Federals—killed, 969; wound
ed, 2041; prisoners, 2374. Rebels—kill
ed, 4049 ; wrnnded, 1064 ; prisoners,
5088. These figures, however, do not

A PRECEDENT.—ShouId England pro
test against the overhauling of the steam
er Trent, having on board the' Rebel
Plenipotentiaries, it may be pertinent
to remind her of some quite recent pre
cedents in her own history. Here is
one : When Thomas Francis Meagher
escaped from a British penal colony, he
sought refuge, if our memory serves us,
on board an American vessel. The ves
sel was boarded by English officers, and
thoroughly searched, but fortunately the
search was unsuccessfnl. Our Govern
ment did not consider its flag insulted,
and demanded no redress for the"insult."
EXPORTS OF CHEESE.—One of the re
markable features 'of the large exports
of provisions now making from New
York, is the immense quantity of cheese
exported to England. There has already
been exported the first ten months of
this' year the enormous quantity of
twenty-six millions of • pounds. Two
millions of pounds of butter were ex
ported in 1859. The first ten months of
this year fifteen millions of pounds have
been exported.

Senator Simmons ,of Rhode Island, ac

Providence for that port laden with, salt

expects to exchange for Sea Island cot

SHARP'S THE WORD.—li is said that a
port of entry will be established, and a
town commenced, in case Beaufort is
unavailable ; that already frame houses
have been shipped, and shrewed business
men, with a sharp lookout for the valu
able trade of that region, are bn the
move thither, and we may soon . expect
to bear that town lots are bringing fab

few days since a wedding took place at
St. John's Church, Margate, Kent,

ed in that county, at a place
Fisherville. An old lady named Fisher,
was attempting to drive 'the cattle out
to a field, one of the lot, a young bull,
refused to follow the other cattle. Mrs.
Fisher took a stick in her hand and com
menced to strike the animal, whereupon
the bull turned and made at the old
lady, who ran towards the house. The
bull soon overtook the !tidy and com
menced to horn her. Mrs. Fisher was
soon oi‘erppwered, and struck senseless.
When she recovered her consciousness,
the bull had left her, but she was hor:
ribly mangled. She managed to get
into the house, and lay all alone in this
condition from nine o'clock in the morn-
big until night, when the rest of the
family, who had been from home all day,
returned. Medical attendance was at
once procured, but she expired in great
agony before the next morning. The
bull made another attempt the same day
on a female on the road, but she suc
ceeded in making her escape. The bull
was only 'about two peas old, and pre
vious to the above occurrence, never
attempted to harm any' person. '
Chester Times says, an immense con
course of people assembled at the house
of the Mother of Miss Debbie Hughes,
who was $1 by the railroad accident at
Charlestown, in that ecunty, to attend
her funeral. Theservices took place at
the &miss., and the precession moved
thence to the church cemetery, at
ering. Carriages extended for a full
mile along the road when approaching
the cemetery. An effecting incident
occurred on the arrival of friends at the
gate of the cemetery. A Miss Jacobs—
a fellow .medical student, and a very
intimate friend of the deceased, and who
resides about two miles from Pughtown,
hearing of the futieral too late to use
much time in looking up a conveyance,
started from home and walked nearly
seven miles, determined to see the face
of her friend once more. Unable to
reach the house in time, she, met the
procession at the gate and implored her
friends to allow her to look upon the
face of one she loved so much. Such
an earnest request could not be , resisted
and the coffin was taken into the little
church and opened. The scene there
could only be described by those skilled
in heart pictures.
GAS TOY BALLOONS.-GliM toy balloobs
inflated with gas are now largely manu
factured in Philadelphia. A city paper
They are made of robber, extremely
thin and charged with ordinary gas.—
Unfortunately the gas gradually escapes
from them. They possess greater buoy
ancy. ,
than air only for a few days. The
gas destroys the tissue of rubber, when
they become useless. As play-things
they are not altogether safe. An urch
in was yesterday r walking the street with
a lot of new balloons floating aboyehim,
secured to a slender string. A breeze
wafted them in the face of a gentleman
who was puffing a regalia. The deli Cate
rubber was burned through, and the gas
in the balloon went off with a bang that
singed off a fine pair of whiskers. The
accident might have destroyed the eyes
of the smoker, articles less easily replac
ed than the whiskers aforesaid. .
CAUGHT A TARTAR:-..-A. naval officer,
was so unfortunate, a day or two since,
While enjoying his dinner atllard's
Hotel, as to denounce what he was
pleased to term "Abolition movements,"
and to add that "tbUt Abolitionist
Henry Wilson is as bad as any of them."
To his surprise, a gentleman who had
been quietly dining at his side, said in
firm tones :--`Sir ! I ant Senator Wilson,
of Massachusetts, aid I will suggest
that you had perhaps better confine
yourself to your duties, instead of indul- .
ing in such 'personal criticisms, whiCh
are in bad taste." The rebuked officer

wait for the Senator in the hall,. and
humbly apologise for his remark.

Ter - rrle----02ao 13•11ar a Year..
—"The report of the City Inspector,"
says the New York Herald of the 9th
May, 1860,--to the Board of Health
which we published yesterday, reveals
an alarming state of affairs in the con
dition of the public health, showing not
only an increase of 1,819 deaths within
the past fear months over those of last
year, but a frightful increase of mortali-
ty *from scarlet feier, croup, bronchitia
and pneumonia—the increase Of deaths
from these diseasei forms one-fou'rth of
the total. This fact warns us of the
necessity existing for some means of pro
tection against unskilled and'half educat
ed Physicians. 'rho public are thus
constantly exposed to malpractise at the
hands of ignorant men, -who follow ifiC
profession merely as a means of making
money with the ambition or the qualifi
cations which pertain to the educated .
practitioner." How widely 'different
have been the results inthe above dis
orders from those who have used Hol
loway,s Pills and Ointment is manifeit
by the fact that. not a single' case' of
death occured wherever the PUG and
Ointment -had been taken in time.--
Thousands of mothers owe a debt of
gratitude to Dr. Hollo,way for being the
meting of saving the the lives of their
darlings. There is no idle theorY or
speculation in the use of these medicines.
The effect is invariably the same—sure
and certain—where - all the instructions
given are strictly fulfilled. The Pills
cool and purify the blood, while the
Ointment locally applied in scarlatina,
croup or bronchitis, allays the inflainina
tion and speedily restbresr thelittle ant!:
erer to the enjoyment of health. In
Europe, we learn that hundreds of lives
have been saved in cases of 'diptheria,
for which the Ointment is a certain cure,.
and for all diseases affecting the throat,
penetrating as it does, the affedted
glands, which no internal medicine
alone can reach—so effectually as'to
act with sufficient eelerity to save the
patient. This extraordinary Ointment
will give permanent relief to All asth
matic patient; and may therefore be
considered as a soverign remedy.
fir The largt;St army ever collected
was that with which Xerxes ; the Sing
of Persia; invaded Greece, in the year
580, before Christ. It is estimated to
have numbered 2,500,000 soldiers, with
as many more camp followers, making
the whole host 5,000;000 human beings.
They conquei ed Athens, but only 'a
small remnant of the army ever retarnad'
to Persia. On his way to Greace,
xes took twelva young girls ()Nile coun
