Even South Carolina is not beyond hope, where if the Xationol laws are once more executed throughout her borders she will ever after remain true to the National Constitution and laws is our belief. Peace is in a nutshell just beyond the war cloud that thanks to a kind Providence and our brave soldiers, is growing less dark and portentious. A democrat is a union man. A copperhead is a rebel claiming to be a democrat. All democrats are by no means copperheads, but who ever heard of a copperhead who did not pro- fess to be a democrat?

Every night, for three years company with her afflicted girl has visited the locality of the tra- i gedy neither rain, snow, cold or heat, has ever yet interrupted this night y visit. They take one regular route up Fifth and South, up South to Ninth, and thence to Locust street, in an alley i mining from which street the murder committed. During the whole walk the girl talks incessant- ly to her mother, in a low tone of voice, and the mother, with bursting heart, listens patiently but hopelessly. She knows the fruitlessness of the nightly walk, but takes it that her un- fortunate child may to that extent be comforted. They walk to the alley where the sad event occurred, heeding no one, and steadily moving to the house where the murderous deed was done. They waii there for some minutes, some- times for as much as an hour. Then the girl says, iSTever mind, mother dear; lie won't come to-night! He will be here to morrow." And the poor creature returns hopefully, some- times even cheerfully, and nearly a thousand to-morrows have since trans- pired, yet each night the girl, with her devoted to the to retire in hope that the disappoint- ment of the night may be consumma- ted by better results in the next. So well is the history known down town, that even the vilest ruffian in Moyamcnsing passes the women by without an insult. Ihe girl is comely with a fresh complexion and fair shape but no man says aught to her, as with her sorrow-stricken mother she makes her nightly journey. The mother's steps are growing feeble. They are poor, and not many days hence the girl must do her journey alone. God help he-1- Xorth American. A secession minister comes into the store kept by a Quaker, and talks loud- ly against the country, until the Broad- brim, tells him he must stop or leave the store. The clerical brawler keeps on, till the Quaker tells him. he will put him out of the store if he does not go out. "What I" exclaimed the minister, "I thought you Quakers did not nght "The sanctified do not fight, but I have not been sanctified yet; and I will put thee out of the store in a minute The minister fled from before the wicked Quaker. A Bit of Pathos in Real Life- There are queer histories in the world. "Walking homeward a few nights ago, in a drenching rain, up Soutli.street, we overtook two females, composedly moving upward under the shelter of a wide spread umbrella. The parties were a mother and daughter. 1 he latter is about twenty-one years of age the former cannot be much short of sixty. In the Rogue's Gallery is the pic- ture of a man named Burkie. The original is still in the Eastern Peniten- tiary. He was sentenced three years ago for the murder, in a house of ill repute in Locust street, above Xinth. of a constable in the office of Alderman McMullin. The victim was named Johnson. Johnson was engaged to be mariied at the time of the murder to a young girl who then lived in a court near Fifth and Christian streets, and who lives there still. The young man ivas not worthy of such love as that entertained for him by the girl in question. A quarrel arose in the and a stab with a knife in the hands of Bur- kie took effect upon his breast, and he was killed. The females whom we met in the pouring shower, as above narrated, were the girl to whom the murdered man was affianced, and her mother. The death of her lover caus- ed the girl to become demented. She remains in that condition to this day. Her form of madness is melancholia. She believes, however, that at some time not definitely fixed, between the hours of one and two o'clock in the morning, by visiting the scene of the her betrothed will appear to Terms of Peace. Some journals talk about arranging terms of peace with the though, in order to a cessation of war, it was necessary to treat with the rebels, and thus acknowledge and recognize them as a power. But we are not at war with a nation, we are defending our national life against a set of insur- gents who took up arms and made war against our government and laws. The only way in which that war can cease is by the rebels throwing down their arms, returning to their homes, and submitting to the laws. "When they do that, hostilities stop at once. Under our system of government there is no occasion for treaties or arrange- ments for whenever the vinced of the hopelessness of their bad cause, are no longer willing Lo fight, cease to fight, and disband their armies, tliat moment the supreme law of the land will again be observed in the whole country, and peace will be re- stored. Xo doubt the rebels would be most happy to "treat" with us. Mr. Stephens and Mr. Quid were quite ready to come to Washington the other day. Their reception would have been the best recognition they could have, and this little ruse of Davis would, had it been successful, have entitled Napo- leon at once to "recognize the Southe n and justify the act by our own conduct. The i eply made to Mr. Stephens was eminently wise and pioper: 'The customary agents and channels are adequate for all needful military conimumuaaon and conference between the Unit-jd States forces and the Y. livening Post, July 9. low it Drink only when resting. Men, when heated, should not drink anything cold. Drink slowly half a tumbler of water will suffice the thirstiest man in the world, if he drinks by sips. In fact, it is almost impossi- ble to get down a full glass of water t iken in this way. OUR RECENT VICTOKIES. Thursday, August 6; Set Apart as a Day of National Thanksgiving. By the President of the United States. A PROCLAMATION'. It has pleased Almighty God to hearken to the supplications and prayers of an af-' flicted to vouchsafe to tho army and navy of the United States, on the land and on the sea, victories to signal and so effective as to furnish reas liable grounds for augmented con fidence that the union of these States will he maintained, their constitution preserved and their peace and prosperity permanently preserved. But these victories have been accorded not without sacrifice of life, limb nnd liberty incurred by brave, patriotic and oyal citizens. Dome-tic affliction in c fcry part of the country follows in the train of these fearful bereavements. It is meet and right to recognize and con- fess the presence of the Almighty Father, and the power of Big- hand equally in triumphs and these sorrows. Now, therefore, be it known, that I do set apart Thursday, the sixth day of Au- gust next, to be observed as a day for Na- tional Thanksgiving. Praise and Prayer, and I invite the people of the United States to assemble on that occasion in their customary places of worship, and in the forms approved by their own con- science, render the homage due to the Divine Majesty for the wonderful things He has done in the naiion's behalf, and invoke the influence of His Holy Spirit to subdue the anger which has produced and so long sustained a needless and cruel rebellion to change the hearts oi the to guide the counsels ol the government with wisdom adequate to so great a national emergency, and to v'sit with tender care and consolation throughout the length and breadth of our land all those who throughout the vi- cissitudes of marches, voyages, battles and sieges, have been brought to suflfer in 'mind, body or estate and family, to lea.l the whole nation through paths of repen- tance and submission to the Divine Will, back to the perfect enjoyment of Union and fraternal peace. In witness whereof I have hereunto my hand arid caused the seal of the United State? to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this loth day of July, in the year of our Lord one thousand eigLt hundred and sixty three, and of the independence of the United States of America the eighty- eighth. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. By the H. SEWAKD, Secretary of State. Rebel Invasion of ITew Hamp- shire General Pierce, with- force" ly estimated at from ten to twenty thousand persons, occupied Concord, N. H., on the 4th of July. In his ad- dress to his troops he sharply condemn- ed the "Lincoln1 and gave due honor to "that noble martyr to free speech, Vallaridigham." The ex- quisite timeliness of his assault on the gorernjoeiit of the country, at the very moment it was engaged in despeaate struggle for existence against an invad- ing enemy, and while the issue of the great battle was uncertain, must im- press every patriotic mind.

The most remarkable example of unblushing audacity and brazen impu- dence perhaps that has occurred since the war commenced, was the declara- tion of the Chicago Times proprietors in the handbill they issued the morning after their traitorous sheet had been suppressed by order of Gen. Burnsidc. They appealed to the public, and dec- lared that their paper, which had been suppressed, had "always been Dem- ocratic, and therefore always and therefore indeed! Why, the Richmond Enquir- er, has "always been Democratic." It has always been the leading Demo- cratic paper at the South. It still claims to be "Democratic and as to we doubt if there is much difference between it and the Chicago difference is only in op- portunity. The Memphis Appeal was always BO was the Louisville The Oth correspon- dent in the 10th Wisconsin, writinir J from Dechevd Station, Tenn., July 12th., says that that regiment is in the 1st Brigade, 1st Division, 14th Army Corps, commanded by Gen. Thomas, The writer, in speaking of the recent forward movement of the'army, says We have been pretty hard up for rations some of the time. In the two- days at the Gap our regiment sustain- ed no loss, though several were struck by spent balls. Our first day there, the enemy, from a hill about a mile in our front, shelled our al in the division were killed. Shell and shot whizzed freely over heads. The health of the regiments good.

To- make amends for this seeming neglect on our part I invite you to partake of the following, nopirig you wifl find them, to your taste "A worthy son of Erin, quite fresh from the Emerald Isle, having just arrived in Quebec, and wanting some article of clothing, inquired of the first man he met where he could find a cloth- ing store. The man. who happened be a French Canadian, told him, with much politeness, that he could get anything he wanted by going to L. and C. Grenier, in St. Peter Street. At this Pat flew into an awful passion, and pitched into poor Jean Baptiste with the greatest fury, to the most visible astonishment. A police- man, attracted by the row, took both parties into custody and brought them before the liecordcr. Jean made deposition and Pat was asked why he had behaved in such a brutal man- ner toward a man who had sought oblige him 'Oblige me, yer Honor faix an' it's I that's obliged him by not knocking his dirty head off.

He explained matters to him and warned him not to be so reudy with his fists in future. The Irishman, sorry for what he had done, invited Jean Baptiste to take a dhrop with him, and they both went out rejoic- inrr-
