We will not trifle with ' small casuisty so much as to question the equity and propriety of robbing Peter to pay Paul; for i the ease before us rises grandly above that— They who "do evil that good may come," have at least a pretence, however indecent, for their iniquity; but in the present busihess, the whole is evil, from the first to the last, from the root to the fruit.

- —="^^ If onderfsi Growth of a Child. | One of the most remarkable exhibitions of the age was witnessed at the Old Market veeterday jnortfing, iv the person of a child, it__d fifteen months, and weighing one hundred and eleven pounds. His name is Samuel Merritt Bishop son of Francis and Adeline Bishop, of Prince George county. He is the third child of his mother, who is the second wife of his father, and was born within about five miles of Fort. Powhatan. The parents oame up to market with fowls and farm produce to sell, and brought their infant with them, in order that he might have the benefit of their constant care. But his appearance at Market was a signal for general remarand astonishment. The report of his presence soon spread abroad, and the people rushed around to get a view of him. Edibles for the time were forgotten, and the entire square, except in tbe immediate vicinity of the wonderful baby, was deserted. As the almost incredible reports flew about, persons from the lo...

A Gallant Feat. The Atlanta Appeal has just learned the i particulars of the capture of a large lot of cat- j tie by some of Longstreet's men, reported i some weeks ago: • The drove had reached a point about nine miles from Knoxvill_, and was under the escort of three companies of tbe Indiana six months men. A party of General Longstreet's scouts, eleven in number, discovered the prize ; -and notwithstanding the disparity in numbers, at once determined to secure it if possible. Placing themselves in ambush at a favorable point, at the proper moment they delivered ii tire from their carbines, which disabled some eight or ten of the Yankees. Im- . mediately drawing their revolvers, they made ... a charge, firing as they ran. So dismayed .. were the Yankees that all broke and fled, except oiie captain and forty-three privates, wrho . urfendered without resistance. Tho /Captors immediately started for Gen. Martin's camp, twelve miles distant, which.they sue- „ ceeded in reaching with al...

Smoke Tor the Cure of Wounds. A correspondent of the Country Gentleman recommends smoke as a cure for wounds in men and animals. He says: I cut my foot with an axe. The lady of the house, seizing the foot while it was yet bleeding freely, held it over a pan containing smoking tag locks; in a few minutes the bleeding stopped, and the smoke was removed and a bandage applied to protect it from accidental blows. Tbe wound never suppurated, and consequently never pained me. I have seen the remedy tried in many similar cases, and always with the"'same results. Let the bear in mind that no liniment or salve, drawing or healing, should be applied. You have merely to smoke the wound well, and nature will do the rest. I suppose the smoke of burning wood would produce the same results, but it would not be so manageable. There is a principle in the smoke of wood, which, when applied to the flesh, coagulates the albumen, thus rendering it unsusceptible of putrefaction. The same principle stops b...
