MARIETTA. PA :
Raturday Morning, December N. 1866,
fir In his report upon the condition
of South Carolina, General Sickles re
lates that in one case, where a freedman
was murdered, the two men who killed
him sat upon the coroner's jury, and
united in the verdict that "the deceased
came to his death by causes ucknown."
'['here is a sort of savage humor in this,
which amuses while it makes one shud
der. When a criminal puts on the
robes of justice, and In her name decides
against his victim surely impudence can
go no farther.
ita - During the past year the War
Department have sold 104,474 horses
for $5,630,417,30, and 102,954 mules for
$7,685,225,96. Other animals have been
sold for $l4 953,432,19, making a total
of sales of animals, no longer needed for
military purposes, of $15,269,075,54.
The horses sold for an average of $53:85;
the mules of $74: 67. The highest price
fur a single horse was $280; the highest
price for a single mule, $325,
oar The Maine Farmer gives the Ag
ricultural Department at Washington a
sharp rap for publishing long scientific
directions, communicated to it by a
foreign professor with an unpronounca
bit* name, by which bones can be con.
varied into manure, as something new
and valuable, but which has been in
practice here for at least half a century,
and can be described in three or four
lines of plain English.

Does IN HOLLAND.—An American
traveler says, " In Holland dog power

They put their loads on a wheelbarrow

harnessed team of two, and even Your of

Chestnut 'street, Philadelphia, have just
issued a new book by Mrs. Emma D. E
N. Southworth, entitled " The Bride of
- Llewellyn," which will, beyond all doubt
_prove to be the most popular and Sue
cossful work that has ever been written
by her, for she is beyond all question
the most powerful female writer in
America, if not in the world. No one
ever read a chapter'of one of her works,
without wishing to read the whole book,
and none ever read one of her books
without admiring the rare genius of its
author, and wishing that she might soon
write another. Her scenes are life-pic
tures, her incidents are founded on facts,
and her sentiments are characterized by
a singular purity both - of conception and
- expression. She has the rare faculty of
saying what she means, and of saying it
in such a manner that her meaning can
not be misinterpreted. In short, she
possesses in an eminent degree those
qualifications which are the peculiar
prerogatives of a good writer ; and while
she delights the reader's imagination
with her descriptive beauty, she applies
home truths to his understanding with
the force of rational Conviction. The
" Bride of Llewellyn " will be welcomed
by all such readers especially ; and
those who have never read the works of
this gifted woman should not fail to
buy and read this new novel by this gift
ed American authoress. It is published
complete in one large duodecimo volume,
price $1:50 in paper ; or $2 in cloth.

A NN S. STEPH.r.:NS' NEW BOOK!
THE SOLDIER'S ORPHANS.
By Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, author of " Fash
ion and Famine," " The Gold Brick," "The
Old Homestead," "Silent Struggles," "Mary
Derwert," " Rejected Wife," " The Heir
ess," " The Wife's Secret," Etc.
This new book, by Mrs. Stephens, has been
pronounced by all to be by far the best and
most Interesting work ever written by her.—
It appeared in monthly instalments in " PE
TERSON'S MAGAZINE" during the last year,
having been completed in the December no.,
where it proved to be the most popular, pow
erful and successful novel that has ever ap
peared in that Magazine, and it is now pub
lished complete and unabridged, in one large
duodecimo volume, uniform with the "Gold
Brick," "Fashion and Famine," and other
works of Mts. Ann S. Stephens, published by
us. It will no doubt prove to be the most
popular and successful work that has ever
before been written by this talented Ameri
" Mrs Stephens has justly become a favor
ite with all American readers of prose fiction,
and the announcement of a new work from
her graceful pen is cheerful news to thousands
of readers. And there is a rare treat in stol
for them, for in " The Soldier's Orphans,"
Mts. Stephens has, if anythin4ectipsed all
her former efforts. There is less redundancy
of scene and action, but there is far more ar
tistic excellence, and an elaboration of causes
and effects, attainable only by practised wri
ters. The action of this new novel transpires
in Philadelphia, and beyond the limits of the
city the authoress does not permit herself to
stray. The time selected by Mrs. Stephens is
recent, the late war, and she pictures with
vivid distinctness the domestic suffering and
sacrifices entailed by, and made for, the grand
and heroic struggle for national unity. The
plot is one of absorbing interest, the charac
ters are graphic transcripts from real life,
strongly individualized, and the contrasts for
med by their individual peculiarities, mental
and physical, lend a rare charm to t.- is last
and most finished of Mrs. Stephens' books."
" The Soldier's Orphans." is published com
plete in one large duodecimo volume. Price,
$1:50 in paper; or, $2 in cloth.
