Falling in love is an old fashion, and
one that will yet endure. Cobbett, a
good, sound Englishman, twitted Mal
thus, the anti population writer, with
the fact that, do all he could, and all
that government conld—ay, all that
twenty thousand governments could—
he could not prevent courting and fall
ing in love. " Between fifteen and
twenty-two," said he, •"all people will
fall in love." Shakespeare pushes out
this season to the age of forty-five. Old
Burton, writing on love-melancholy;
gives us a still further extension of the
lease ; and certainly "there be old fools
as well as young fools." But no one
is absolutely free from the universal
passion. The Greek epigram on ' a stat
ue of Cupid, w hich Voltaire, amongst a
hundred of others, has happily produced,
is perfectly true :
" Whoe'er thou art. thy master see
Who was, or is, or is to be."
Probably no one escapes from the
passion. We find in trials and in crim
inal history, that the quaintest, quietest
of men, the most outwardly saintly,
cold, stone-like beings, have had their
moments of intense love madness.—
.Luckily, love is as lawful as eating,
when properly indulged in.
Cobbett tells us how an English yeo
man loved and courted, and how be was
loved in return ; and a prettier episode
does not exist in the English language.
Talk of private memoirs of courts—the
gossip of the cottage is worth them all.
Cohbett,'who was a sergeant-major in a
regiment of foot, fell in love with the
daughter of a sergeant of artillery, then
in the same province of New Bruns
wick. He had not passed more than
an hour in, when, noticing
her modesty, her quietude, and her so
briety, he said, "That is the girl for
me." The next morning he was up
early, and almost before it was light
passed the sergeant's house. There she
was on the snow scrubbing out a wash
ing tub. "That's the girl for me,"
again cried Cobbett, although she was
not more than fourteen, and he was
nearly twenty-one,
" From the day I first spoke to her,"
he writes, "I had no more thought of
her being the wife of any other man
than I had the thought of her becoming
a chest of drawers." lie paid every at
tention to her, and, young as she was,
treated her with all confidence. He
spoke to her as his friend. his second
self. But in six months the artillery
were ordered to England, and her father
with them. Here was indeed a blow.
Cobbett knew what Woolwich was, and
what temptation a young and pretty
girl would be sure to undergo. lie
therefore took to her his whole fortune,
one hundred and fifty guineas, the sa
vings of his pay and overwork, and
wrote to tell her that if she did not find
her place comfortable to take lodgings,
and put herself to school, and hot to
work too hard, for he would be home
in two years. "But," as he says, "as
the malignity of the devil would have
it, we were kept abroad two years long
er than our time, Mr, Pitt having
knocked up a dust with Spain about
Nootkit Sound. 0, how I cursed Noot

torical painters of our Royal Academy
give us scenes from English history of
intrigue and bloodshed. Why can they
not give us a scene of true English
courtship like that? Cobbett, who
knew how to write sterling Eaglish bet
ter than any man of his own day, and
most of ours,,does not forget to enlarge
upon the scene, and dearly he loved his
wife for her share of it ; but he does not
forget to add that with this love was

Louisville Journalisms
Lieut. Cul. Alston, of Alorgan's staff,
captured near Lebanon, says that the
rebels would sooner be swallowed by
an earthquake than acknowledge the
Federal authority. If an earthquake
were to swallow them, we doubt wheth
er- they would stay upon its stomach
half as long as Jonah did on the Whale's.
For nearly two years the Journal and
the Democrat went together for the
Union. They would have gone together
for it4to this day but for the Democrat's
discovery of the philosophical fact, that,
"if two ride the same horse, one mast
ride behind."
The Democrat says that "the rebellion
hangs suspended, as it were, on a single
thread." There's many a rebel leader
that ought to "hang suspended" in the
same way, only the " single thread"
should be a very strong one.
Mr. Wickliffe says he is 75 years old.
We don't know why he stays here so
long, unless because neither heaven nor
bell is willing to take him. And yet

Mr. Wickliffe said at the courthouse
that he wished his voice could "reach
every hamlet.aud corner in the- State."
We guess that a good many hamlets
and corners would rather be excused.—
.would prefer pleasanter noises.
Now that Vicksburg is a Federal
city, the rebels, if they choose, can go
and try to finish onr canals.and turn the
Mississippi off from• her. They'll proba

upon the grown!. Dig away, rebs.

France still talks about recognizing
the Southern Confederacy. Let her
recognize it if she will, but if she at
tempts any armed intervention, we guess
we shall whip her till she will hardly
be able to recognize herself.
We understand that Geo. W. Bich
ley, the father of the "Knights," will be
tried as a spy. Facts seem to leave no
room for a doubt of his guilt. Let him
be ready to eat brimstone-puddings with
the Devil.
The Lord rained upon the earth forty
days and forty nights. General Grant
rained upon Vicksburg forty-nine. And

--" Mother I they may kill the body, but
they cannot touch, the soul!" was the
language used by poor Abraham Frank
lin, as he was borne from the presence
of his mother by the barbarous mob on
the morning of the 14th ultimo. This
young man, aged twenty-three, had been
an iovalid for about two years, and was
a confirmed consumptive. When the
mob broke into the house they found
him in bed. They bore him into the
street, and there, although he had not
raised a finger against them, indeed was
not able tfi do so, they beat him to dean,
hanged him to a lamp post. cut his panta
loons off at the knees, cut bits of flesh out
of his legs, l 'and afterwards set fire to
him All this was done beneath the
eyes of his widowed mother. Such an
exhibition of bloodthirstiness is without
a parallel in the history of crime. Pat
rick Butler and George Glass, both
Irishmen, the latter fifty-three years of
age, have been arrested for the murder
of Mr. Franklin.--Angto African.
EXEMPTS.—One of the most notable
features of the draft is the large pro
portion of exemptions. to the whole
number of persons drawn.' Assuming
that this part of the work is fairly con
ducted, and that none, or but few, are
released from military duty except for
physical disability, and we are forced to
the conclusicin that the American peo
ple, of this day at least, are remarkably
sickly and infirm. The Newburyport
Herald, in referring to the circumstance,
says: "If it be true that the young men
from 20 to - 45 are so diseased and de-
bilitated as is reported, what is to be
the physical condition of the next gen
eration, of which these are to be fathers ?
This is a more fearful thought than even
the rebellion itself." -
GLUE. FOR READY UBE.—To any gnarl•
tity of glue add common whiskey instead
of water. Put both together in a bot
tle, cork it tight, and set it• away for
three or four days, when it will be fit for
use without the application of heat-
Glue thus prepared will keep for years,
and is at all times fit for use, except in
very cold weather, when it should be
set in warm water before using. To ob
viate the difficulty of the stopper get
ting tight by the glue drying in the•
month of the vessel, use a tin vessel
with the cover fitting tight on the out
side, to prevent the escape of the spirits
by evaporation. A strong solution of
isinglass, made in the same manner, is a
very excellent cement for leather.

WICKLIFFE : Prentice, of the Louis

Charles A. Wickliffe, the noisy border
state member of the last Congress from
Kentucky. The Journal at- one time
was quite a defender of Wickliffe's
course in Congress, but afterward took
grounds against him. We have never
read anything more severe. The Jour

a public nuisance. All the secretions
of his body are in his biliary ducts and
his gall-bladder. He is incapable either
of cherishing attachment or being the
object of it. Ile has no more genial
feeling than a hyena or a ghoul. His
soul is a spider that sucks poison from
all things alike. It would seem as if,
like Spencer's impersonation of Envy,
he were always chewing a toad, from the
manner in which venom is forever drip

to escape from it. He has felt at home

flowing with all the best and noblest
thoughts and affections of our nature,
enjoying happiness and diffusing it
around him, and giving up his great and
enthusiastic soul to the promotion of
the greatest good of his country and of
mankind and the other brooding ever
upon evil thoughts, vile antipathies, and
fell conspiracies, trusting nobody and
trusted by nobody, env3ing the good and
fearing the rivalry of the bad, holding
himself aloof from all the sweet and
gentle sympathies of his race like a
beast of prey, laying steadily up through
every year a store of bitterness for other
years, and finally, at his three score and
ten or three score and fifteen, preparing
for the close of his most unhappy life
by an attempt to betray his country into
the power of an accursed rebellion. The
thought of what he has been and must
be a coal of fire in his brain, and an en

think that he might well rejoice at grow
