Girls I Pass Along! '
BY JOHN G. SAXE.
Bless me, what a rosy row*
Os girls at me their glaneess throw
As they gaily come and go,
The light.coquettish throng
Can t the darlings hear me sav :
“I have had my youthful day ;
Now, I put such things away?”
Girls, pass along.
Ah, my Zoe, pray desist
Sooth, I care not to be kissed ;
Ask vour moth.--- ' if T list
To Cupid's siren song ?
that is entre nous—
Know-s what Love and I can do;
Her advice you'd best pursue—
% Girls, pass along.
Laura, you would hardly guess
How your grandam use to press
Lips of mine—well—l confess—
We didn’t think it wrong;
Look I she’s coining. Tempt me not
In gay saloon or shady grot;
A jealous eye the dame has got;
Girls, pass along.
You smiling too. you naughty Bose
I wonder now if you suppose
I’m not aware what sort of beaux
Around.your beauty throng?
I know the husband-hunting crew,
And all the prettty tricks they do;
I’m old—but much too young for you.
Girls, pass along.
Away, away, you madcaps, fly;
Your roguish arts why will you try
To bind a graybeard such as I
With Cupid’s slender thong?
Yet, like a powder magazine,
My heart from flying sparks I screen,
The sparks that shoot from wanton e’en.
Girls, pass along.

Hurrah! hurrah ! for the old frost-king,
Who comes with snow and chill;
Hurrah ! hurrah! let your vocicas ring,
And cheer him with good will.
Hurrah—hurrah! once more,
Old Winter’s at our door.
His flowers are on the window pane,
Ilis carpet upon the earth ;

loudly, loudly cheer.
Old A'inter again is here.
What though he makes us shiver and shake,
Still hail to him, say I;
And let us strive if we cannot make
His reign pass rnorily.
So loud let us sing—
Old Winter is our king.
And o’er the frozen lake aH wo glide,
To him we’U gladly sing :
We’ll leave all thoughts of the cold aside,
And hail him as our king.
Yes, yes, merrily sing,
Old Winter is our king,
Yes quite a jolly old king is he,
Though his a frosty crown;
And he dearly loves to see our glee—
Should we, then, be cast down ?
No, no, we’ll gladly sing,
Ours is a jolly king!
An Otl(l Praetx-al .J01t,,.
A Swiss court has had before it a
case originating from a practical joke
of an equally daring and ridiculous nat
ure. A sapper, with a bushy head,
who was returning to his native village
from his military duty, staid a night in
the chiel town of the canton. He was
found drunk in a ditch on the roadside.
Two wags passing by, according to
Swiss Times, took the drunken man
first to the house of one of them, who
owned an old monk’s cowl and a ton
sure, shaved all thejhair off his face ; and
dressed him in the habit of a monk.—
They then too h him to the nearest con
vent, and said they had found him lying
drunk on the roadside, and brought
him there in order to avoid the scandal
which might ensue if he were found
outside. On awaking the sapper was
not a little astonished to find himself in
the cell of a convent, with a monk’s
cowl on, and that he had no hair left
on his face or on the crown of his head.
To his protestations, the fathers replied
that he must be still laboring under the
effects of drink, and advised him to go
to sleep once more. At length they
consented to send for the priest of the
parish where he said he resided, in
order to clear up the mystery. On the
priest arriving he recognized in the
psuedo monk his parishoner, whereupon
he was permitted to depart. Means
were found to discover the two wags,
and the sapper, thus extemporized into
a monk, as well as the brotherhood who
was so fooled, intend to bring an action
against them. As in religious matters,
the canton of Friburg is very strict,
and is not likely to see the point of the
joke, the two wags wiil probably get
the worst of it.
THOMSON, McDUFFIE COUNTY, GA., OCTOBER 9,1872.
Greeley at Newport.
Cincinnati, September 21.— When
Greeley arrived at Newport, Kentucky
he spoke as follows : Citizens of Slew
port —There was a time, and that not
many years ago, when I would not
have been welcomed to the soil ol Ken
tucky as I am to-day ; and there was a
time when Kentuckians did not think as
they do now, and I believed it was be
cause they did not understand so well
as they do now ; for in olden times I
was an humble but zealous friend of
Kentucky’s noblest statesman, Henry
Clay. I loved, I trusted and followed
that mao tV, i.,,.ny ye«ri, a.-; i sere v.S.s
my heart when the news came that our
fondest anticipations were blighced, and
he was not chosen President. But
what matters it ? The fame of Clay is
world wide and he is revered and loved
by millions of his countrymen and will
be for generations to come. What mat
ters it whether he filled one office or
another, or no office ? The office does
not make the man. It is men like
these who dignify and glorify the of
He concluded as follows: Many
times I was told fifteen or twenty years
ago you can come down South, and
nobody will hurt you. I said why
should any body huVt me V There
never was a moment he wished ill to
the South and I never sought to do them
harm. Why should you tell me I should
be protected in the South? 1 have
never been there because my duties did
not call me there. But I felt certain
always that no gentleman of the South
would lava hand on me, and I don’t
believe they would let blackguards do
it. They were talking as if it were but
charity to let me pass through.
That has passed away, fellow-citizens,
You may have been one of the most
effective Confederate soldiers of the late
struggle, and you may travel all over
this country, and I think—no one except
low, xulgar persons, will offer you any

giving nobody cause of offense, was
treated, perhaps, as I was, and his
person and property were just as sa
credly respected as mine were.
Now, then, we have opened anew
era in this country, but there was a time
wfien it was not so, that every Northern
man, whatever his principles, could not
travel through the South. Now they
can do so, and lam glad of it. Think
no more ol our triumphs in the late
struggle. Let us rejoice to-day, that
these triumphs have tended to produce
good to the whole American people.
There were actually men in the North,
who believed, when Lincoln was assas
sinated, that the Southern people, as a
people, rejoiced in that assassination.
1 am sure it was not so ; but here is a
black, bloody deed done, and a whole
people suffered lor it. It was for a long
time impossible to make a large portion
of that class believe that this assassina
tion was not the work of the whole
Confederate people. There was injus
tice done them through prejudice and
j through passion.
We must try to dispel that prejudice
I and that passion. We must try to
j make the whole people feel that the
| American name is dear to us ali: that
j even in our struggle we were friends,
and did not tear and rend each other—
we did not destroy. Prisoners were not
unjustly treated; but I really believe
the people on both sides meant to treat
them with humanity, so far a3 they
'could do so, and when cruelties took
! place they were not understood to be
! approved by the great body of people
j North or South.
Now, then, let us all resolve that we
shall be nearer to each other next year
than this [Applause.] lam demand

ple say there are only three or four

were only two hundred ? I object to

his astonishing but fool hardy feats.—

Although a high wind was blowing he
was daring enough to walk the rope

the whole by cooking an omelet while
poised on the middle of the rope.
The Panormo Murder.
New York, September 29.— The
i cruel murder of Professor Panormo, a
Brooklyn teacher of music, in the public
streets of that city ’n January last, will
be remembered. A man named Hig
gins has, it appears, turned informer;
and, according to his story, the crime
was committed by four thieves, an Eng
lishman named Kane, alias Cockney,
and three others, Cassidy, Seaty, and
.Michael O’Brien, all of New York.
Disappointed in an intended burglary,
and resolved not to return empty handed,
they laid for somebody to rob. Seeing
of the four
said ‘let’s go for tins man coming up
and see what he’s got about him.’
One of them grabbed him by the collar
and said in a-rough voice, ‘Whit have
you got about you ? Come, pony up,’
at the same time shaking Panormo. As
soon as he felt that he was grasped, he
cried out, or he made an attempt to
to cry out for help, and another one of
the four pulled out a large pistol,
jobbed him in the neck with the muzzle,
and said, ‘damn yo; r dirty soul, if you
yell out again, I’ll blow your brains
out.’ Feeling the muzzle of the pistol
at Ips neck, Panormo stopped, and a
third man proceeded to go through him,
and was just on the point of taking his
gold watch, when the man who pulled
the pistol on him, thinking Panormo
would not dare to-try out. replaced the
pistol in his pqAet. Seeing the pistol
disposed of PanOTmo agiiu cried out for
help, and that cry cost him his life, for,
with a terrible oath, O’Brien struck
him in the temple with a club, and as
the unfortunate victim was reeling
backward from the effects of the blow,
he again strung him with the club,
hitting him over the left eye and flat
along on the face to the upper lip, .and
this blow was the one which made the
terrible woijiid which was so fully
described at Ahe time. Only two blows
were struck, and the man who was rob
bing himofihis watch grabbed it, and,
seeing him relied and bleeding, they all
ran off and/-cached New York in differ

Guano YlepoPt op Paiur.— Harry
Meiggs. thcjgreut, railroad operator of
South Arn( l iv°a, has discovered, on the
main land of\tlie west of Peru, the most
immense depost of guano ever seen any
where. llnf- deposit is said to extend
for several fi\iles along the coast and
reach far inland. The Chinca Islands
have heretofore b on considered the
richest in guano production, but this
last discovery shows conclusively that
this is of much better quality and much
easier to handle than the former. Mil
lions upon millions of tons can be dug
cheaply and transporte 1 to all parts of
the world at a much lower figure than
heretofore. This valuable fertilizer will
no doubt be used much more extensive
ly in this country, as well as Europe, as
the price at which it can be furnished
will place it within the reach of all.
This discovery alone is worth more to
the Peruvian Government than all the
money they are to pay Mr. Meiggs for
Piercing this Andes. —The railroad
now constructing from Lima to Oroya,
piercing the Andes, will unquestionably
be, when completed, one ol the proud
est monuments of human power and
enterprise. The tunnel, which is
3,U0) feet long, is being executed at an
altitude of 15,000 feet above the level
of the sea, and with extraordinary ra
pidity. Numberless lives have already
been lost among the workmen by pe
culiar diseases brought on through the
effects of the climate, and the coolie In
dians are the only ones capable of being
employed upon the works, as it is found
that no other race can withstand pro
longed labor in the rarefied atmosphere
of those lofty regions.
MAtciius.—Although friction matches
are as common as nails, a very small
proportion of those who use them un
derstand the princip'e on which they
operate. It is, in fact a very simple
idiaif. The tip of the match is a com
bination of sulphur and phosphorus.—
The phosphorus ignites at the heat of
one hundred and twenty degrees, which
a slight friction will produce, and this
in tbrn ignites the sulphur, which re
quires four hundred and fifty or five
hu up red degrees. The flame of the sul
phi)t sets file to the pine wood, of
which the match is composed, and
which ignites at about six hundred de
grees. The combination is necessary,
because the phosphorus alone would
not kindle the match, while the sul
phur alone would not Lignite with the
Ex-Presiilent .Johnson and
A New York Herald Reporter had
the other day an interview with ex-
Presieeut Johnson,at Jonesboro,Tenn.,
in which the ex-President explains his
action in Mrs. Surratt’s case. Says the
Speaking to ex-President Johnson,
this evening after the meeting was over,
I asked him :
‘How do you intend to meet this
clamor in Western Tennessee about
jmiir action in Mr. Surratt's case V
‘I have no fear of that clamor ; if
there are people still so ignorant as
to believe I compassed or am in any
way responsible for the death of Mrs.
Surratt, I leave them where they are.’
‘What is the exact fact, Mr. Johnson,
about Annie Surratt’s attempt to reach
you at the White House, and being
repulsed, either through your order or
by the order of Preston King ?’
‘I never knew until after Mrs Surratt
had been executed that her daughter had
been seeking to see me. Preston King
had nothing to do vvi'h repulsing her.
There was a fellow named Muzzy (I
think he is in Washington still) tacked
himself on to me at the White House
in some way or other, and finding this
girl looking in a frantic way for me,
and unable very likely to understand
her, refused her admission. Os this I
knew nothing until some time after.
Now as (o the case of Mrs. Surratt, Mr.
Lincoln, asyou may know,'wasassassina
ted atatime when he was commander-in
chief of the armies and martial law pre
vai'ed in the District. The opinion of
the Attorney General was taken as to the
mode of trial for the conspirators, and lie
decided that tiiey were liable to the ju
risdiction of a Military commission.
They had a full and fair trial, and all
four were found guilty. How was Ito
know that Mrs. Surratt was innocent?
All I could do would be to pardon her.
Could I pardon her without pardoning
the rest, where there was nothing but
sympathy for hersex to justify it? As
for the Surratt clamor. I shall meet
and answer it whenever it conies up.’

An Indian chief of the
was taken prisoner by his enemies, the
Cherokee, and doomed to torture, but
fell so seriously it became neces
sary to wait for his restoration to health
before committing him to the fire.
And, as lie lay prostrated by disease in
the cabin of the Cherokee warrior, the
daughter of the latter, a young dark *
faced maid, was his nurse. She fell in
love with the young chieftain, and,
wishing to save his life, urged him to
escape. But he would not do so unless
•she would flee with him. She consent

pelled by soft regrets at leaving home,
she asked permission of her lover to re
turn for the purpose of bearing away
some memento of it. So, retracing
her footsteps, she broke a sprig from
tiie white rose which climbed up the
pole of her father’s tent, and preserving
it during her flight through the wilder
ness, planted it by the door of her new
home in the land of the Seminoles.

One op Grant's Pets. —Wm. T.
Clark, of Connecticut, who was so unani
mously kicked out of the present Con
gress, where he assumed to represent a
district in Texas, and who was imme
diately rewarded therefor by Grant with
the postmastership of Galveston, has
been obliged to retire from that position
by the pressure of outraged political
and public opinion. Grant turned out
an entirely worthy official, against
whom not a single objection had ever
been urged, solely to make room for
this chap. Such fellows are the spe
cial pets of of the Grant Government,
and we are surprised to learn that it has
had the decency to get rid of him. We
shall be very much surprised, however,
if Giant does not promptly heal his
wounds with the plaster of another
office even slitter than the Galveston P.

Poultry Keepiiifjjfoi' Woman.
There are many women who, espe
cially within the last half dozen years,
while the price of eggs has been so
high, ma/te money much faster by tend
ing poultry than by sewing. It is an
occupation especially suited to woman,
because it involves patience and con
stant attention to details rather than
strength. Then again, the hardest
thing for many men to learn, in handling
either poultry or bees, is gentleness,
ilow many times we have seen boys,
and men with no more sense than boys,
jerk hens roughly from their nests, en
ter the poultry houses abruptly and
frighten the occupants till they rush iti
a fluttering mass into the farthest cor
ner, and keep the poultry community
in constant agitation and distress. But
all domestic animals appreciate thff
manners of women attendants when
they are fortunate enough to be cared
for by them. Now that there are wo
men gardeners and florists, who by
commendable industry and business'
qualities have riseu to eminence in these
callings, and wiiiie one of the most suc
cessful bee-keepers in the wo-ild is a wo
man, we hope to see others give poultry
more attention than it has hitherto re
ceived. Aside from profit the keeping
of fine poultry for fancy is an elegant
pastime, very popular with English
ladies, and we see no reason why the
fashion should not be adopted beer.—
Hints about Flowers. —House plant?
ought to be stimulated gently once or
twice a week. Rain water, so refresh
ing to summer flowers, always contain
ammonia, which also abounds in all
liquid manures, if you take an ounce
ot pulverized carbonate o! ammonia, dis
solve! in one gallon of water, it wilt
make spring water even more stimula
ting to your plants th m rain water. If
you water your plants once in two woe/rs
with guano water (one tablespoonlul to
a pail of water) they will grow more
thrifty. Chicken manure dissolved in
water is excellent. Always keep the
soil in your flower pots loose. A cony
mon hair-pin used daily will stir the
esrth sufficiently. —Boston Journal *°f
