E'en thus it was in bygone days, when hopes

And thou hath seen thy homesteads laid in ashes

And of the rose cheeked happy band, of children

From house to house, to swell the crowd and
frolic in the snow.
But, what now are those happy homes the tower

Outstanding monuments of shame, amid the trade*
And’where, oh! where, that gleesome band? as

For one lone -grave we stood beside, in Autumn s

That hour,so fraught with loneliness, ere night
her curtains spread, ,
We laid our warrior down to rest, among the

Who, in that sacred burial ground, have filled

And though droud war and battle clang have rent

Thou still has slept, us sweetly on, as though no

And when the .quiet evening spreads its slilly
How sweet to linger out the day, upon the sa

To close tie- eyes to dying earth, and look be

The joyous hope of meeting there, robs death of

We visited numerous temples, busili

walked upon mosaic pavements showing

Incident in the Case us Witz.
A correspondent of the -Ndw Yolk
World, writing from Bichincml, makes
the following extraordinary statement :
It is perhaps not generally known that
during the incarceration of Witz and
Major Winder in tie) Capitol prison, they
occupied adjoining cells, and enjoyed
facilities of communication, one to the
other by words or writing, through an
aperture nut observed, doubtless, byjlie
jailor. Xu one wets permitted to see
either unless by special privilege from
the Secretary of War. On the night
previous to the execution of Wire three
men outerml his cell, of course by per
mission of ritunton, and proposed to him,
that if he would agave to implicate .Toss.
Davis itr the aliedgod conspiracy to
starve the Northern prisoners confined
at Andersonville his life would he spar
ed. Wirz replied that he would not save
his own life by sacrificing that, of anoth
er innocent man. The parties thereupon
left the cell, and Wirz immediately com
municated ull that transpired to Major
Winder. The Major Sometime after met
Mrs. Davis in New York, and revealed
to In r what is here stated, backing it up
by an affidavit, which lie gave her, and
which she now holds. The trial ofDavis
r '-mid involve revelations which would
shock humanity, ami test to its fullest
whatever sense of justice or feeling of
national pride is still left at the North.
It is not unreasonable to presume that
popular indignation would he aroused to
j. a pitch that would render it unsafe for
the eonooctors of the vile plans devised
to secure the sacrifice of Davis’ life, to
prolong their residence aiming a people
whose fame and character they so gross
Should not the names of the irio who
made this infamous proposition to Wirz
he traced out by some means If the
World would initiate some movement to
that end it is probable that some light
ini 111 tie obtained which would fix the
. identify of these vUliana. The time is
eminently auspicious for such an inquiry
now that, the rogues are aiviilg ng each
other’s iniquities. .It may bo that Major 1
Winder has some information which
would'give a clue to the names of the
parties. If he has, lie should he induced
to furnish it and then the wretches should
be held up to the" universal scorn and
contempt they so riclfiy merit.
Fcnxy Ixenm.vT—On the steamer In
diana, on one other trips down the Mis
sissippi, there happened to lie on hoar.!
a 1 lousier from the Wabash, who was
going to New Orleans, ami had provided
liimself with an old fiddle, fancying lie.
could fiddle as well as the next, mini, and
planting himself where lie could lit tract
notice, scraped away. The fellow couldn't
fWdle any more than a setting hen, and.
the horrible noise disturbed his fellow
passengers. A Frenchman of very deli
cate nerves and musical ear wan especial
ly annoyed, lie fluttered, he fidgeted,
I and swore at the fiddle. The passengers
tried various expedients to rid them
selves of the Iloosier and his fiddle,- but
it was no go; he swore he’d “musiek just
lus long as lie pleased.” At last a bjg
Kentuckian sprang from his seat, saying
“i'll fix him.” l'laciug liimself by ill -
fiddler, he commenced braving with all
his might. The effect of tins move w-as
Old Kentucky brayed so loud that lie
drowned the screeching of the fiddle, aud
amid the shouts < f the passengers the
discomfit ted Iloosier retreated leaving
the-Kentuckian, and his imitation of Ba
j luain’s friend. The delight nt the French
I mini knew no hounds, and quiet was
j restored. During the night the Ki ntnck
inn- left the boat. The next morning,
. bein'e breakfast, the passengers wee
i startled by the discordant sounds of the
tormentor. Iloosier had discovered the
i coast was clear and was bound to re
j venge jiimself on the passengers. Louder
and v oise tjian ever screamed the fiddle,

horse in health. Carrots and parsnips,
cooked or raw and given to horses are au
excellent alternative, and are protnotivo*
of digestion and- give tbne to the s'om
aoho. Bran mashes should be given
once or twice a week to all horses that
are kept up. They are made by using'
about five quarts of bran for each horse,
and pouring boiling water over it, and
putting in a bale salt and letting it
stand lib cool and then feeding to the
horse. (Kind bright hay and oats only

thus vigorously sums up the result of
the late war :
"To accomplish the i mancipation of
the negro we have hardened the nation
with a colossal debt, impoverished and'
beggared cue-half of' the country, We
have.deranged our currency, subverted
our Constitution corrupted, the public!
morals, clothed hundreds of thousand* of
families in mourning and maimed Luu
drcils of thousands of surviving citizens;
.we have created famine prices for food
have turned onr trading classes and bank
ing institutions into cliques of specula
tors wo have destroyed our shipping in
terest and worse than all have tilled the.
hearts of our poop c with" rancorus and
malignant passions aid poisoned the
whole social aud political atmosphere.
If the negro has been elevated the while
laborin' has boon, depressed halfway to'
meet him. For what is the essence of
slavery? What but' this, that, one man
works ntul smother takes from him the
fruit of his labor ? - iieloro the war all'
that the white labor earned was his own
now half of it is wrested from him by the
Governrficrif." It is with difficulty that’
he ran fetid nnd clothe his family ; but
food and clothing are what the Southern
slaves never wanted. The white labor
er's children go ragged and shoclesß to'
meet the cost of emancipating the ne
groes. The price must ho paid to tVic
: utmost farthing, and our politics must
tain for many years to come, on qnes
j lions connected with .the just distribution*
of the burden.”
A QfF.sTmv op Mm-XTAivs.-ifas Califor
! nia in- Oregon the highest mountain in
; lhe United States is a question which is
now occupying the attention of scientific
men of the coast. The question lies be
tween Mount flood in Oregon, and
Mount Whitney in California. The form
or. is 15,0(10 feet high, aud the latter, up’
;to last August lias been reputed to be
12,000. At that lime Prof’. Wood as celt-"
iled Mount I [pod and reported its heig'ht'
to lie 11,000 feet. The report has exei
! ted no little aston'sliment. The latitude^
, and longitude are easily ascertained, and
are probably correctly stated on the'
maps of the United States coast survey
It seems a little strange that if the molin'
tain was 17,000 feet high that it has not
been discovered before this and it is the
general opinion among scientific men
that l’rof. Wood has made a mistake.—
Prof U hitnoy made some remark* upon'
i this question at tlic February meeting
| of tin- California Academy of Natural 1
.Viouces and ho called attention to fWd’
fart that a correct calculation of Prof,
Wood’s observations would make Mount
llood not 17,000 feet, but 34,000 stet
high ! Dr. Ni u berry, who is considered 1
gmal authority, says that forest trees are"
not found more than 0,500 foot above the
i’a at Mount Hood, whereas Prof. Wood'
-ays they grow to 9,000 feet. An inves
t.pat ion to be made this summer witf 1
probably deprive Mount Ho and of the
honor ol beii-g the high mount aid in
> the United States.
