We sing, we sing the story, The sweet, the sweet old story, How Jesus came from glory, And suffered for us all. Dear Saviour, grant thy blessing While we, our.wants confessing Before thee humbl, fall, 0, bless us in our praising, 0, help us in our praying, And let us hear the speaking Within these sacred walls.

MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 29, 1865. A Rich Story. A Parkersburg paper says that sever ' al members of the Legislature took care at Grafton late on the evenin; of the ltlth ult., for Wheeling, and among the number was Mr. G., of somewhat large proportions physically, and a Mr. D., of proportional undersize. Thep) two, the stalwart Mr. G., and the smoothed•faced little Mr. D., took a berth together, it seems, in a sleeping car. The little man laid behind, and the good-natured, waggish Mr. G., before. Mr. D., soon was snoring furiously. Mr. G., more restless under hie legislative burdens soon arose, and was sitting by the stove, when an elderly lady came aboard and desired a sleeping berth. "All right, madam," said Mr. G., "I took a berth with my son, and you can occupy my place in that berth where my little boy is sleeping..' Taking G., at, his word, the lady disrobed, and laid down with the "boy." After a quiet repose of some time, the boy, Mr. D., became restless from some cause, and began to kick around, to the great annoyance of the old lady. So in a maternal manner she patted the boy on the back and said, "Lie still, sonny; pa said I might sleep with you." "Who are yon,?" said , the Legislator, "I am no boy I lam a member of the West Virginia Legisla ture !" It is said the . old lady swooned. NEVER Too OLD TO LEARN.—Socrates, at an extrema age, learned to play on musical instruments. Cato, at eighty years of age, thought proper to learn the Greek language. Plutarch, when between seventy and eighty commenced the study of Latin. Boccaccio was thirty-five years of age when he commenced his studies in po lite literature ; yet be became one of the three great masters of the Tuscan dialeot,—Dante and Petrarch being the other two. Sir Henry Spelman neglected the sciences in his youth, but commenced the study of them when be was between fifty and sixty years old. After this time he became a learned antiquarian and iawyer. Colbert, the famous French Minister, at sixty years of age, returned• to his La tin and Law studies. Ludovico, at the great age of one hundred• and fifteen, wrote the memoirs 'of his own times. A singular exertion, noticed by Voltaire, who was himself one of the most remarkable instances of the progress of age in new studies. . Ogilby, the translator of Homer and Virgil, was unacquainted with Latin and Greek till he was past the age of fifty. Franklin did not fully comma nue philo sophical pursuits till he had reached hie fiftieth year. Accurso, a great lawyer, being asked why he commenced the study of law so late, answered that indeed he began it late, but he could; therefore, master it sooner. Dryden, in his sixtieth year, commen: oed the tranelation of the Iliad ; and his most pleasant productions were writ. ten in his old age. air The School Master follows the Yankee soldier in all his victories in the South. Immediately upon the occupa tion of a rebel stronghold by the Feder al forces, schools are opened, and free newspaper; circulated. These are the influences which will soon regenerate the South ; while the contemptible aris tocracies which have so long devoted the fairest portions of the Union to sla very, will find, it as bard to resist free schools and a free press, as to battle against the majesty of a free Govern ment. flir Three horses, of the respective and respectable ages of thirteen, seven teen and twenty years, were served up at a late Paris banquet, in the shape of soup and with cabbage, fillet de horse, hashed horse a la mode, roast horse. horse liver with ruffles. One hundred and twenty persons partook, who ex pressed their entire , approbation'of such hoss-pitable entertainment. An old Irishman who had witnes sed the effect of whiskey for many years past, said a barrel labelled 'whiskey' contained .a thousand Bongs and fifty fights, besides an unknown 'number of drunks. ar A weather prophet out west has prophesied that we are to have a wet spring;a damp ,summer and a dry fall and beautiful crops throughout the land. A canter will give you ruddy cheeks; a decanter will give you a ruddy nose: , sr T he worst organ-grinder . .--A hol low tooth that. plays the deuce. PIINISHNEIT ON THE INSTANT.-By one of our Illinois exchanges we learn that a few days since a soldier's wife, living in the south ' part of Macon county, came to De4atur for the purpose of re ceiving at the express office a package of $2OO sent her by her husband in the army. Being unable to furnish the proof of her identity, she was obliged to return without the money, and was sub sequently accompanied by her brother in-law, who furnished the required proof. 'On returning home she placed the money under her pillow. Some time daring the night a man, whom she supposed to be a negro, broke open the door and demanded the money. There being a fire in the fire-place sufficient to light the room, the woman threw the money on the floor, and as the ruffian stooped to pick it up, dealt him a blow with a poker that broke his neck. The neighbors were aroused, and on washing the dead man's face the robber proved to be 'her brother-in-law. A MASONIC FACT.—Dr. R. G. Scott, Past Grand Master, in an address de livered years ago, made the following statement. It is honorable to the Ma sonic Institution—and we presume the members of that ancient body- will . be pleased to read it and see it circulated "From sources of information on which I entirely rely, I state the fact that fifty at least of those who signed the Declaration of Independence were Masons, and' the same history informs us that every Major General of the Rev olutionary army was a Mason, save one —that one was Benedict Arnold. g i r The late Dr. William J.:Walker, of Newport, R. 1., left $220,000 to his midow, four daughters, one son, and the widow and children of another son; $40,- 000 in legacies of $l,OOO each to female acquaintances, and the remainder of his property, amounting to about $1,000,000 is divided equally between Amherst and Tufts Colleges, the Institute of Techno• logy, and the Boston Society of Natur al History, making to each of these in stitutions the munificent donation of $250,000. In addition to • these large sums left to be disposed of by the will, he gave $400,000 to various objects du: ring his life. e . In answer to a letter from the Chairman of the Twenty-second Ward Draft Relief Committee, Provost Mar shal Dodge, states that New York city will be positively required to fill her quota under the last call, and that so soon as any assistant provost marshal finds himself not fully occupied in re ceiving recruits, the draft will be re sumed. Maj. Dodge concludes : "Un less ordered to the contrary by the War Department, I shall exact from New York city every man of her quota, and the sooner the people make up their minds that the men must be furnished, the better it will be for all concerned.h ar A lady, going out from Vicks burg a few days since, excited the sus picion of an officer by the peculiarity of her manner, and upon being searched there'was found in her shoes'an accurate map of the fortifications of Vicksbtirg, location of arsenals, various headquart ers of generals, and a full description of the various commissary and other public stores. She was arrested, taken back to Vicksburg, and furnished with safe quarters. Gr An enthusiastic and philanthro pic young man, visiting a prison in Maine, inquired of some of the prisoners the cause of their beingthere. A! small girl's answer was that she had stolen a saw mill and went back after the pond, and was arrested. !Ear "I suppose," said a quack, while feeling the pulse of his patient, "that you think me a humbug." "Sir," re. plied the sick man, "I perceive you can discover a man's thoughts by his pulse.' ®' Uncomfortable.—To be seated at the table opposite a pretty girl, with a plate of hot Soup, on a hot day, a trouble some moustache, and no handkarchief. wir It is often a pretty good matrimo nial firm that consists of three quarters wife and one quarter hnshind.

Stratton, of Jamestown, Chau tauqua county, N. Y., called upon us on Monday. Mr. S. is but 18 years of age, though very tall and well shaped, and has been a soldier in Company G of the 147th New York Regiment, going to the seat of war in August, 1863. On the 18, of June, in the engagement before Pe tersburg, a.solid shot took off both his arms above the elbow, and although for a time a great sufferer, be has recovered from the wounds, but is left, of course, in a most unfortunate and dependent condition. Be is at present at the New Englansl Rooms, on Broadway, and would be glad to see his friends or those who are friendly toward him. Mr. S. states that there are four per sons known to hiM who have suffered during the war the loss of both their arms. They are: Plunkett of Massa• chusetts, Dunphy of Rochester, N. Y., John H. Beary of Ohio, and himself. He further states that there is one other man (if what is left of him may be call ed "a man") who is still more entitled to the commiseration and charity of mankind than either of the persons above referred to, he being a Pennsyl vania soldier, whose name is unknown to our informant, but who, to his positive knowledge, on the same day when be himself was wounded, suffered the loss of both arms and both legs and ONE• EYE, and is still alive to tell the story.—New Yo k Tribune. r MR. LINCOLN'S LATEST LETTER.—Last week General Van Alen, of New York, ' , rote to the President to ask him not to expose his life unnecessarily, as he had done at Richmond, and assuring him of the earnest desire of all his country -Men to close, the war he had so successfully, conducted. After acknowl- edging the receipt_ of the letter, the President replied, April 14th, the day of his death, and said : "I intend to adopt, the advice of .my Menus and use due precaution. * * * I thank you for the assurance you give me that I shall be supported by conser vative men like yourself, in the efforts I may make to restore the Union, so as. to make it, to Else your language, a Union of hearts and hands as well as of States." "Yours truly. . A. LINCOLN To General Van Alen." Gir A young woman in England, aged twenty-two, "born stone blind," was re cently restored to perfect vision in four days by a surgical operation. The ef fect of her new sense was most curious. She had at first no . idea whatever of perspective: She put her band to the window to *try to catch the trees on the other side of the street ; she was utterly ignorant also of a common thing e. g., what such things as a bunch of keys were, or a silver watch, or a common cup and saucer ; but when she shut her eyes and was allowed to touch them, (the educated sense), she told them at once. (',Henry Heyneman, who, at the commencement of the rebellion, made a vow that when our armies captured Richmond he would walk the whole dis tance from Boston to VV.ssbington, and carry an American flag, will start on his lengthy pedestrian touron Monday next, at eight o'clock, A. M., from the steps of the State House. A beautiful silk flag has been presented to him by Mayor Lincoln in behalf of the city. gar Gen. Pickett, who caused the ex ecution of 28 loyal North.

Or A singular phenomenon in the shape of a lake of water has made its appearance in Centre county, Pa., about three miles from a aro tll place called Horntown, on the Hublersburg road, covering about one hundred acres of land, and varying in depth according to the irregularities of the ground, from ten to thirty feet—some say fifty feet.

F. P. Rildreth, Assistant Sur geon or the 40th Massachusetts, has transmitted to Governor Andrew a raw bide used in whipping adults, and a strap and handle applied to younger people, at the public whipping post in Richmond. Whites as well as blacks were coerced with these instruments. The last person whipped with the cow hide was a colored woman on the 31st of March. ar The oldest enlisted man in the United States army is Sergeant John Mills, principal musician of the First U. S. infantry, on duty at New Orleans. Sergeant Mills belongs to Haverhill, Mass., and entered the United States military service in the year 1808. Lieut. General Winfield Scott entered our army the same year. g liir The artificial propagation of fish has been successfully pursued by Ages siz, in a bed room, with a wash-basin. where he raised trout and a number of other species of fish. One of the most curious natural studies is the propaga tion of fresh water snails, which will live for years in a washbasin half filled with sand, and will multiply rapidly. sr Louis XIV. was not the first French monarch to try his hand upon Julius Caesar ; he had been preceded by Henry IV. who translated the whole work, and did not give it up after the first book.
