NKKK  Cincinnati, O'  [From tho Hamilton [Ohio] Telcfirfiidi )  What I sail} and heard at Cnlumhia  on the mh, llth, 18/7i and mh of Fchruary, 18G5.  On tho IGth of Fcdruary tlie army of GcnernI Sherman met on the right bank of tlio Congarco river, opposite Columbia. In uniting, the right cam§? into position on the left. The bridge over tlio Congarco and those over the Saluda and broad rivers, which unite and fol-m tho former about one mile above Columbia, had been burned.— (The latter streams arc about us large, and tho Ibrmcr perhaps twisc ar:i large, as tho Miami at thi.s point.) To facil-itato the crossing and to get into proper por^iton, the army of tho Cumberland marehcd, by tb.c left flank, to a position about fivG milcrf, and the 15tli army corps (army of Tennessee) up the Saluda about one mile from its junción with the broad.  Wishing for a "Good Excuse'^  Next morning in. company with thi.s same oiHccr, I started to visit the ruins. On our way we met crowds of soldiers, who were yelling, singing, waving gold watche,-i, handsful of gold, jewelry, and rolls ot rebel ehinplastcrs in the air, and boasting of having burned the town. One was staggering under tbo weight of iihugo basket iillcd with silver plato.  Tho 17th Army Corp.?, Army of Tennessee, went into camp on the banks of the Congarco within less than ono mile from the centre of the town. From our camp the whole city was in plain view. No troops, save a few skirmishers along the river, or citizcna, could be seen on the streets or about the town. I had never seen so much carelessness in exposing camps and troops, in plain view of a place occupied by rebels, and remarked to a captain of artillery tliat they could make us scatter by opening a battery on our camp, and the column of troops marching on the road within musket shot of the town. "So they could, and I hope they will fire at us. We wish  ibr a good excuso to blow tho town t,.o the devil, and will do so on the first provocation. They know better, however, and will not disturb our sleep to night." A few shots were exchanged between the pickets of tho two armies across the Congarco and Saluda.— Near our camp, and close by tho road on which the 15th Army Corps was marching, were the remains of Camp Sorghum, where Federal officers had been kept as prisoners of war.  Collimhla Foredoomcd.  The feeling of the Army of Tennessee is so well illustrated by a profano and ferocious doggerel, which was sung by hundreds of the 15th Army Corps :  their houses to mako more men in our division drunk than I ever saw. in two years bejfbro. About 10 p. m. fire began to spread over tho city, and a noiso from tho grand revel could be heard.  The Entire City in J<7amcs.  About midnight an intim'nto friend, who had been in the place from three o'clock in tho afternoon, returned to tho regiment and reported as follows . "The whole city is in flame.q, and tho wholo array is drunk." The place is swimming with liquor, brought from Savannah, Charleston and Wihningi ton by tho blockado runors, and uban-donecl. Tho citizens, in. thevr desire to please the soldiers, deluged them with it, and then women and children  there liy them, has boon burnirig over since, and rcaehed your house last night.!' "Well, wore you not in command of the army last night?" "I did not command my aVhiy last night, and cannot command my men Ayhen they aro drunk." "Will you allow us to go to Charleston "You have my full consent to go wherever you wish, but do not go there. If my army sliould go there, and it may do so, they will iiot leave ono stone on another in that city."  FANCY ARTICLES, ! Bryan, Hartridge & Co.,  Such as.

The doom of Columbia was dccidcd at Camp Sorghum, and neither Gen. Sherman nor any other man could have saved it from severe treatment. Tho 15th Army (iorps crossed the Saluda with but little opposition, and encamped on'^ the tongue of land between it and the IJroad Next morning (17) about' 8 a. m., loud and repeated explosions in the city were hea.d. At 9 a. m., an oxtenfiivo iirc was seen in thé neighborhood of tho Charlotte railroad depot. From this to 11 a. m„ cotton waii seen burning in streets. About this time brisk skirmishing was heard to the north of tho city, immediately a squad of soldiers from the 18th Iowa sprang into two small boats and paddled across the Congavee, On landing they started for tho State House, in order to have the honor of raising the flag of their regiment on tho building in advancc of "tho 15th Army Corps. White flags were now seen on most of the houses and in the hands of citizens on the streets..  The Fire to he ^een ichen Sherman^s Arviij Entered.  Just then the bugles of our division sounded strike tents, and wo were in a few minutes on tho route taken by tho 15th Auny Corps. As the route was cncumbered "With the trains of those troofs, and some fiv'o miles in length, wo did not reach Columbia until about 8 p. m. As wc marched throtigh the town there was no sign or appearanco of fire any where. Crowds of intoxicated soldiers wore on the streets crying ''Hero's your whisky ; here's your tobacco."  The Carnaval of Destruction Begins.  At 9 p. m. wo reached our camp on tho plantation of ex-Governor Adams, of slave trado notoriety. Scarcely had wc gone to camp, when almost every other man came in with a box of Madeira wine on his shoulder, and a ''high old timo" was inaugurated.  It was reported that there were 10,000 bottles of the article in the ex»» Governor's house, and a still larger (juantity in that of Secretary Trcnholm. As to the amount I cannot say, but there was winci cnougli nbtai'ticd from  were on the streetn, handing lifuors to every blue-coat that came a ong. Tho guards have been changed three times already. As fast as they are changod they get drunk.  Plunder Without Restraint. As we passed by the ijunatic Asy lum wo wero surrounded by hundreds of men, women and children, begging for protection. On the grounds attached to this building wero thousands whom tho fire had rendered houseless and homeless, congregated at the only place of .refuge loft in that quarter of the city. Near by a crowd of soldiers, accompanied by a performer seated by a piano, wore singing "Brown."  On Main street, for near ono mile, there was not a single hou.-^c standing, and on a spaco as largo as this city there were not twenty.  Terrible Eridenees of Their "Rage and Hate." The streets throughout this districE were covered with broken and burned remains of furniture ot every variety. Near the new State House a large bonfire of tobacco, near 200 feet long 50 feet wide and five feet high, was burning, and wasting its^TrSgrance on the air. A number of Jews weie standing by, weeping and exclaiming: "Mo poor, me starb, starb, starb.— Your mens conto in mine house, kicks me out, sets fire to mine house. Me carry mine topaccy out on tho streets. Your mens put wood on him and punrs all mine topaccy," Around the new State House, however, were stronger evidences of the rage and hato of tlio Boldiors toward cvei'^thin^ belonging to, or conncctcd with the State of South Carolina, than even tho gei-oral appearanco of the town. This building was unfinished. Most of the ornamental portion had not been removed from the boxes in which it had been brought there. There were tho remains of fluted columns, capitals, entablatures, friezes and cornices, of the finest Italian marble, that had been destroyed by fire, dcfaccd by blows from muskets, and mashed by axes and hammers-  Monument of the Gallant Dead Desecrated.  ■ Even tho monument erected by tho State to tho gallant dead of the l^al-metto Eegiment (1st South Carolina) in the Mexican war, had not been spared. It consisted of four iron columns, resting on a foundation of stone, and supporting an iron platform surmounted by a Paltiiotto tree of the game material, twenty feet high and painted green, a truo copy from nature. On brass panels, between the iron columns below, Avere inscribed the names, residenc, causo and date of death of all the dead of tho regiment. Ono of tho panels has boon batterc d to pieces  What icas done hi/ Northern Democrats.  At noon I returned to my regiment, engaged in destroying the railroad near the city. Close at hand was a vacant building containing a fine library belonging to the llhett, Barnwell, Hoywood and Middlcton families. It was fired and burned in tho presence, and without a word of remonstrance, of an officor commanding a brigade, who has sinco been a candidate on the Democratic State ticket in a Western State.  Columhia in Rxdns. On the 19th, hundreds of men were engaged in destroying the last vestige of everything that had been or could be used for military purposes. Houses that had been usett for that purpose were burned and battered down under tho superintendence of (ion. Sherman. Fires repeatedly occurred where houses were found to contain cotton, tar or turpentine.— The guards declared they wero cases cf "spontaneous combustion,'' the "heart of Iving Cotton, becoming fired at the sight of the stars and stripes." At 5 p. m. the large arsenal was blown up. Tho standing order on the march to the sea, to destroy government property "in a manner moro devilish than can bo dreamed of," was fully carried oat. Next mobbing our brigade, the last of Sherj^an's army, left tho ruins of what hail been a city of 30,000 inhabitants, y  Ihe Amhor. A lady asked Gen Sherman : "Why did you burn our town, or allow your army to do so?" "I did not burn your town nor did my army. Your brothers, sons, husbands and fathers set fire to every city, town and villiago in tho land when they fired on Fort i Sumter.

Blair, in a conservative Union spcooh at St. Louis, a few days ago, paid tho following compliment to tho Southern States:  They have ovinced courage and en-durcnco. iiy their gallantry and by their long sufTcriiig in this cause, so mistaken, and so erroneous, and so criminal, they have shown themselves to bo the equals of an equal number of any men upon God Almighty's globe. [Applause.] Those who have contended against them are those who aro readiest (o admit that they have shown themselves to be the equals of any other people in tho world. [Applause.] Not only have they shown thcniscLvc.s ready to admit that these men aro their equals, but they havo shown themselves the readiest to overlook the past, and forget what there is need of forgetting; and to receive those men back into the Government, with all their rights and dignity of their respective States unimpaired, simply requiring from them upon the pledge which they will give, tliatthey will renew their allegiance to the Government of the United States. [Ap-nlauso,] Cannot wo trust that pledge if these men will give it to us'{ Have wc not reason to believe that they arc men of sincerity '{ Can wo not confide in those brave menI say that wo can. [Applause.] I say that this is the only way in which they can be brought back into the Government and bound to it by links of gratitude, stronger than any links of steel that can bo wrought. [Applause]  And now I will ask, what foreign nation is there on earth that would not bo proud and happy to receive these people and give them all tho rights of citizenHhip enjoyed by any uf tliuli citizens ? [Applause] \Vould not Franco be eager to do it? Would not Great Britain bo too proud to extend her dominion over that proud country, sharing her Government with those gallant, noble men who have vindicated their right to manhood in this contest unparalleled in the history of war ? Would not any forcgn nation upon tho face of tho earth be willing to receive this people ? Not receive them on degrading tcrnis, but rcceive them in open arms upon an eq-jality with her other citizens.  who by bis aid arc to return to Palestine, resume their rank as a nation, and rebuild Jetuaalem. Napoleon is then to begin and carry on the persecution of Christians which answers to the pouring out of the vials. "Two years and six weeks" after the date of the covenant with tho Jews, "the ascontion of tho ono hundred and forty-four thousand wise virgins" is expceted to occur. Tho Jews are to be favored only for seven ycar;i and two and a half months, and then the great battle of Armageddon is to take place, in which Louis Napoleon, (the "great beast") is to be defeated and slain. This is a revelation more startling than any of iJr. Ciimmin^'s inventions.—Exehanisc  stock of iron c^c., on hand. Ho gets ten per cent, added to tho duly on wire iron, which ten per cent, is pliin-dored from the pockets of the people, to "represent" whom ho paid several thousand (^ollavs in election bribery ono Sunday morning. Boswcll Hart, from the iNIonroe district in tiiii^ State, is largely interested in tho salt workfi of Saginaw, i^lichigan, and probably also in the SyracuHc salt monopoly, and joins the ring of plunderers that ho too, may profit by tho plundering, ~N. Y. World.  How the Tciiiiossoc Tic^î8l»ti]vc wns Throttled.  The National Intelligencer explains the manner in which Parson Brownlow and his Jacobin clique in the Tennessee Legislature forced tho ratification of the last amendment to the United States Constitution through that body. The editor says :  It appears that fifty-six votes were requisite for a quorum of this rump Legislature. The vote upon the constitutional amendment was forty-three ayea and eleven nays, making only fifty-four members present and voting. Two other members were at tho timo in the custody ot the sergeant-at arms, under arrest, and refuning to participate in tho proceedings. Tbo quorum was thus constructively made ujv^ The wholo tifhur is a shameless juggle and fraud, which will bo repudiated by the people and pronounced illegal by the courts.  The following is the Parson's dispatch to his friend "Dead Duck" Forney, announcing his triumph  Nashville, July 19, 1800. Hon. J. W. Forney.  Secretary U.S. Senate, Washington :  Wo have fought the battle and won it. We have ratified the constitution-al' amendmont in the House—forty-three votes for it, eleven against it; two of Andrew Johnson's tools not voting. Give my respects to the dead dog of tho White House.  W. a. Brownlow.  WKiiii: wm.i.  The ¡La Crosso Democrat is brimful of editorials like tho following, in its last issue. It is well for "Buicic Po.m-lUlv' that he lives in so high a latitude. It would bo awful treason for any newspaper down this way to talk thus : Brother Democrats—there is work for us to do. We have ' a country to rcscue from ruin, iauatieisni. and the damnable grip of Now England intolerance, priestcraft and a favored sectionalism, begotten in ignoranco and nurtured v,'ith the hot blood of innocence.  Pray for pluck ! Be men—or cowards.  It you arc democrats and arc afraid to  own your faith, sit down and let the  vv^omen take your place.  Wc can succeed. We can save the  country or die in tho attempt. All wc  ask is this—  Ivpialityof the States or another wai! AMiite men to f^'overn white men-Ivinal ta.\ation or repudiation.  Here is our lianner, and those who like it aro asked to aid us in getting it before the people. We want old Ct>x-stiti'tion ; every State represented in Congress and tho right to rcgluate her cwn ailairs ; United States Bonds taxed or repudiated. It is a cowardly, tyrannical wrong to keep eleven States out of the temple they built in their own blood. It is an insult to Wasji-ixtrroN that niggers must govern white men. It is damnablo to New iilnglandizo the hot sweat of western men into cooling perfumes to regale tho nostrils of pampered abolition protected, Bond Holders !  And we say to the radical traitors in Congress and backcrs, equal not given the toiling whites and the many States of America, there soon will bo another Grand March fiom the Praries to the Sea, which will Sher-manize New hhigland forever and taint tho floors of the Capitol with the extermination of purltaiiical intoLn-anco ! And if you ask what we mean, you will find it in this paper and hear it on tho platform of tho poor white men—the decendantofllevolutionary stock—who never bowed his head to a tyrant or sold his honor for place or gain, and who dares not only write and talk what ho thinks, but dates face the.musij of every national air.  A TRTnt:-i'e 'ro thk Womhn Of THK St)t"rn.—Tho New York Ncwp, replying to one of i^rney'a editorial attacks upon our ladies, makes the following remarks •  "it never has been tho habit of the women ol thuouuth to attend political meetings, and wc have never hoard that they did so during the war. But the other charges brought against them are true—to their immortal honor be it said. The fervent love of country,tho devotion to princi)ilc, nnaficcted pictv, the generous scll'-Facrifice, tlie calm courage, the womanly tenderness, tlio unflinching fortiliido tlioy oxiiibifcd whenever circunistancos provoked their exercisc, whicli this taan Forney imputes a;i crimes to the women of tho South, will form their cyown of gl')iy in tho ages to come. And long after Forney shall have gone down  "To the vilcdu;;| fi-om whiidi ho cju-nn.i.'-,  Unwept, indioiiored. and inisunj;,"  pootry and art shall combine to do honor lo'tlio memory of that splendid sister-hood—the 'Women of tho South.'"  thoir  rights and fair play be  nigger-loving  The proportions of the human figure aro strictly mathematical. The wholo figure issix times tho length of tho foot. Whether tho form bo slender or plump tho rule holds good ; any deviation from it is a departure from the highest beauty of proportion. The Greeks made all their statues according to this rule. The face, from the highest point on the forehead, where the hair begins to tho chin, is one tenth of the wholo stature'. The hand, from tho vrrist to tho middle finger is tho same. From the top of the chest to the highest point in the forehead is a seventh. If the length of the faco,'from the rootrf of the hair to tho chin, bo divided into three equal parts tho first division  dotcvmincs tl\Q pluco wlioro the oye-  brows meet, and tho second tho placo of the nostrils. TIic height from tho feet to the top of the head is the samo di'iiance from the extremity of the finders when the arms are extended.  Coming Invents.—A literary curiosity has just appeared in London, under the title of "Louis Napoleon the destined Monarch of the "World," ctc., by the llov, M. Baxter, author of "The Coming Battle." It is said that twelve thousand copies have been sold, the book finding readers, notwithstanding its absurdity, on account of tho noteworthy names used by the author as authorities. Wo arc indebted to Mr. Baxter for tho cheerful news that tho world is to end in 1873, so that the people may set about their preparations for that event as soon as they like ; hut during .tho brief interval of six or seven years the Emperor of the Frcnch is to become sole monarch of the world, personally representing the Anti Christ of the latter day.
