Of course I know what it through tho pack and see if you can find it." The editor looks with the same eagle eye which ho would give to the seruiny of u cotemporary's leading editorial "It isn't I thought not. There's a gentleman at the other end of tlie room who seems cut out for a necromancer. I marked him -when ho came in this evening, and recognized a fraternal likeness in him. He has been watching you has evidently spirited that duece out of your pack." The young gentleman indicated blush- es deeply. If you ever noticed, connec- tion with n morning paper has something dowcy and rural about it, which greatly contributes to tho preservation of youth's roseate flusb. The young gentleman, furtbermoro, strenuously insists that he's the bonnet, rushes by her check. It is the one which sMould be there. All tha cards emerge from their proper place of concealment wiih the same certjiinty.

Hawkins, formerly a. citizen of Dnbuque, arrived here a few days ago from Lexing- ington. He has been living in that place for the last year. His house was sHuated midway between the pickets of the con- tending forces, and was completely rid- dled with bullets, especially tho top por- tion of it. His family escaped by lying on the floor. He was captured after the rebels drove in the pickets of the Federal troops, and discharged when they were lot off. lie relates an incident irs the fight com- ing under his own observation A Union soldier was crawling along the ground for a place of safety where he could shoot at the "Seseshs" without danger to himself.

In the case of the Sixth, the dissatisfaction seems to be gen- eral, starting probably in petty feeling of jealousy, and being engendered by tium and assistance. AN EDITOR RELEASED.--James A. Mc- Master, of the New York freeman's Journal, was released from Fort Lafay- ette Wednesday, after subscribing to the oath of allegiance. He protested against what he was pleased to call the indignity of hi? arrest and incarceration, and also against being required to take the oath of allegiance.

"WHAT TIIEV ROSE the- jester to Charles IX., once tried his mas- ter's nerve by rushing into his room one morning with the exclamation. Oh, sir, such thousand m-en have risen in the city I" cried the "startled king; "with what intention have they said Jean, placing his finger upon his nose, probably with the in- intention of laying dovrs again at bed- time." ANY OTHER common and popular term, has set originals at work for the purpose of ascertaining its- starting point. Being somewhat of .an eercheologist oursclf, and prone to search tho scriptures, we have discovered tho origin of the term. It can be found in the 17th verse of the 16th chapter of Judges, where Delilah was coaxing Samp- son for the secret of his great strength. He indulged as follows If I be shaven, then ray strength, will go from me, and I shall become and be like any other for Sampson! WHAT MR. ECSSKLL THINKS Mr. Russell, correspondent of the London T-imes, in a letter under date of Septem- ber loth, says: "It would be a curious, but not a grateful task, to cull the flowers of rhet- oric in the wide-spread garden of accusation and invective, that spring up. all over the States in reference to that, same retreat from Manassas. When tho stain is to be effaced it is not possible to- but I am disposed to think General McClellan will do it when he does if his troops are properly led by their re- gimental officers." I DON'T SKE Nelson was un- doubtedly the author of this popular slang phrase. At the celebrated' naval buttle of Copenhagen, Nelson was deter- mined to continue the fight, but whoso attention had been called to the of the commanding officer to cease ities, placed his hand over his good and pretended to look with his saying, "I don't see and at ouce or- dered a renewal of the engagement.
