As a matter of course he the 4 was a "good mateh." Mothers were fill v anxious for their daughters to make Nnr his acquaintance; but for some an- Ti known reason he constantly evaded thei them. He lived within himself; he In associated with but few, and they milli were mostly men. He was cold and TI reserved, never having much to say. have He was in the habit of going away 0 every summer, and remaning away wel for two or three months.

Little Ignoranoes, A few boys and girls acquire tihe art by some progress, which seems4nttuitive, and snell perlectly years before they can by p'ossibility have read half the words they are ultimately required to use. Printers all know how very little the spelling ever ti of even of the best educated is to be trust- ii ed, and we have reason to believe that if b English journalists were weeded by an ex amination in which etymological accuracy s was the sine quaa nou, the profession would fi lose some very, competent members. One a occasional contrihu'or to this journal, a man whose ed+cation has been of a singe- d larly perfect kind, aad who is a true scholar I in his way; never sends in a contribution 1 without half a dozen etymological errors, d and tnere are di,ub'e-firsts, who would rather trust themselves in Greek than t English without a pocket dictionary.

Military Justice SB-OalledP On, of the victims of the Military Com. - mission that lynched certain persons -c cased of murdering Mr. Lincoln, has made an appeal to the public. His name is Spanaler, a carpenter, who was employed a at Ford's theatre, and was there in his functions on the night of the assassinatiow. It He was pardoned by President Johnson, b upon the general belief of his innocence of the crime of which he was accused. We have already mentioned his statement a'd we recur to it, because its authenticity was impuned by the Prees of this city,in an ed itorial of Yesterday. If the narrative is not genuine, we will be glad "to belp in ex posing it, but the Press seems to base its a opinion on its opinion on the internal evi- t . dence of the facts stated in it by Mr Span- t gler. lst a telegramf from Washington, al~o published in the Press, very much t mnodified the editorial assertions in that pa per.

DECORATING THE GRBAVS OF THE DEAD. TriE BLUE AND THE GRAY--BY F. M. FINCH. By-the flow of the inland river, Whence the fleets of iron had fled, Where the blades of the brIve grass quiver, Asleep are the ranks of the dead Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day; Under the one the Blue Under the other the Gray. These in the robings of glory Those in the gloom of defeat; All with the battle blood gory, In the dust of eternity meet; Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day; Under the laurel the Blue Under the willow the Gray. From the silence of sorrowful hours, The desolate mourners go, Lovingly laden with flowers, Alike for the friend and the foe- Ul er the sod and the dew rWaiting the judgment day, Under the roses the Blue Under the lilies the Gray.
