Such, my dear hearers, reads a no tice I find on my sacred desk this morning, and I read it 111 hopes you will profit thereby.

I surely have myself behaved With meak spirit and mild As chi d of mother weaned, my soul Is like a weaned chili. All sing! oay.s t, "ouily: Nut 111 a bully spir it hut with a sort of puritanical mean ing, and concluded to go. 3lrs. Sniv eller—Mrs. Beacon Sniveller—lived in a large, white house, in a stone patch under the hill, down by her husband's button shop. Mrs. Sniveller was a ltadiig horse, *> onlled, in the team of benevolence at Buttonville. She had a little peaked red nose, about right to open dams with : a nervous jerk toiler head, spiral entieers, and a water-fall, the size of a plum pudding, hut filled with more ingredients. Deacon Sniv eller passed the plate Sabbaths and took the funds home to count. Mr. Sniveller always gave with liberality on the next Sunday! I wan tod to go. I borrowed hoop skirt.-, waterfall and etceteras I puff ed my front hair, slung my waterfall on my bump of obstinacy, hoisted an onion into the ridicule 1 carried on my left arm, shouldered a cotton umbrella, took a piece of red flannel to make a shirt for some little innocent hud on the tree of Abolitionism, and sailed forth as the Yankee struck two. Mrs. Snivil.er was in. The front parlor and the middle was full of noble women, whilethe best bed room was full of bonnets, green umbrellas and retscules, in which to carry home sweet cakes, tarts, biscuit, plum bits, apple cores, and little things slyly slipped from Mr. Sniviller's table. Mrs. Sniviller didn't know me. I told her I was little Sally Squiggles, as what lived there ten years afore, and had been South teaehin skule! "Lordy massy, so it is! Why, how natural you do look, now it all comes to me again! Bless me! Let me kiss my dear Sally who has escaped from the wretches!"— And angelic Mrs. Sniviller mine near putting,' my eye hors (lit combat with the end of her nose! i was introduced. Nineteen women were glad to see me and kissed their dear little Sally, til! my waterfall got skrewed clear round under my left ear and I began to feel a rising sensation in my throat from the hugging then and there given, or words to that ef fect. After I bad been so affectionately gone through, i went into tiie bed room to reconstruct. Gracious! My waterfall had got under my left ear, making me look as if some ugly man of sin had lifted me one with brass knuckles and forgot to take it home with him, while my beautiful front hair resembled a garden full of pea vines after a hurricane. But I retained my composure and went out and be came the centre of attraction. "My dear Sully!" "Precious Sally!" "Little Sally Squiggles, sure e nough!" "So glad you cum hum!" "Xeowdew tell us all about it!" Mrs. SniviJJer was made chairwo man. and the following resolutions were adopted: Jla.solvetl, That this shall bo called the Buttonville Benevolent Baby Associa tion. Resolved, That Mrs. Sniviller he, and hereby are, our President. Resolved, That our aim is to help the downtrodden and bed ridded daugh ters of Ham, now in the dutches of that vile people, and to this end every member of the B. B. 8., make one lit tle flannel shirt a week, and Sally Squiggles shall tell us the size. Resolved, That we open and close our Society with prayer. Resolved , That each one of the mem bers invitesome man to go home with her at night. fHere I was about to ob ject for fear of exposure, bit for fear of exposure 1 didn't object.-* After the Society was organized I was kept so busy answering questions that T canienear not finishing the baby envelope I was workingon, and should not, had T not taken lonf stitches as people do in Benevolent sowing. Mrs. Sniviller said : "Neow, Sally, ain't that ere South ern people the hatefulest, proud people the world ever did see? Cousin John, who went down as a sutler, brought home two trunksof the proudest silks, laces, jewelry that was real gold, and set with party stones that was real dia

monds, and worth a power of money. He found them in bureaus, trunks, closets and such places. The sneaking coward men had gone off to kill our good people, and the women were at work in the hospitalsandall John had to do was to whip a lot of little chil dren and help himself! I know them ere folks are a wicked, mean, ongrate ful set, and ought to be killed." Mrs. Puritan wanted to know if it was true that the people of the South actually cooked biled dinners on Sun day? If they did, she really hoped her cousin in Congress would pass a law that whenever a man in the South cooked a biled dinner on Sunday, he should be hung before dinner and his biled dinner sent North ! Mrs. Pinch back hoped the war would continncr to go on till there was no more end of nothing. For her part, it i was all st tiff about the people suffering j during the war. lier Josiah had a! contract and made two hundred thou sand dollars the tirst year, and when ] her brother, Rev. Peek nose Ranter, came back from the war where he had periled his precious lifeeating preserves so they would not hurt sick soldiers, he brought home more than fifty gold watches and the nicest gold clasp bible, which was now used every Sunday in i one of the Buttonville churches. Mrs. Squeak saiti the people of the South were nothing but murderers, for wiiou nei wroiuci, \nn. viJ, ro u • > was out in a lield, doln nothln, killin nobody but just seein how much cot ton an army team could drag, so he could tell if it was a good team, some cowardly gorilla shot a hole clear through him, and wouldn't even send his clothes home for Jedidiah to wear out! and she hoped if another war ev er did come, some (ft them sinful men of the West would go down and do it up for 'em agin, not as she cared so much for her brother, but she wanted them ere clothes for her Jedediah. Mrs. Cockeye said she hoped there would be a hull passel of wars, for her cousin, her dear good cousin Benjamin (the Beast) had made lofs of money in the late war, and had supplied nearly all her relations with spoons, watches silver ware, &c., and said it was right the war should go on, for her cousin was safer in the war than afore a court of justice even, and said it was a Christ ian duty to let all Christian wars be continnered as long as there was any body to continncr 'em. Mrs. Sniviiier here spoke again— "Well, I don't care no how. The South should be fought-! What right had they to have cotton picked by niggers without asking our consent ? And they were rich. And they had nice tilings. And we believe that a nigger baby is of more account than a white nauper in the North. And my husband, Deacon Suiviller, wants more! 1 tones to make buttons of. He'll sell the buttons to theSouth and West, and they will have to pay us New England j Christian- for the privilege of wiring . out their own bones. By this time tea was ready. Me had a good tea. Such curious silver j ware, old style, pure silver didn't taste brassy a bit, and all of us ladies tasted ; all the silver dishes to see! And such j a lot of spoons! Each one of us had I atour plate a spoon with our initials on. Mrs. Sniviller had a barrel of sil ver spoons, and hunted them over till she found our regular initials in regular order. Oh, it was so nice! And we j piled all the shirts up in a chair, and j put a bible rescued from the wicked South on the top of the pile, and then j Rev. Mr. Shimmer came up aud made j a prayer, and Mrs. Dawdler on a nice i rosewood piano played that patriotic ! piece of music, John Brown'sbody lies raonld'ring in the grnro. j After which the Buttonville B.

The Beechers are natural growths of Puritanism—fair samples of that intoleranceof belief, which finally loses itself in impracticableness and unchris tian ideas or rank infidelity. They have ceased to possess Christ's religion, and are full of Beecher religion, alto gether a different compound, a thing as changeable as the hues of a chamele on or'an Abolitionist's notion of What constitutes loyalty. Ward Beeeher's church has been for years little better than a Sunday ware house for the inculcation and dissemi nation of the blackest sort of Black Re publicanism. Throngs have been in weekly attendance to applaud and laugh on Sundays as they would hardly do on Week days, lie has grown popular —has proved a "paying card" for the trustees, who invested money in build ing the church in which lie holds forth —has received great salaries—purchas ed lands, and is one of a few ofthe cler ical,lights whose names figure in the income lists. He affects oddity, and takes real delight in startling old fash ioned christians with new notions of liberality toward worldly pleasures advocates billiards, occasionally "pun ches" a few himself, and drives as fast a horse as any jockey in Brooklyn. This Yankee christian has a sister, not "to fortune and fame unknown"— she has written books—books in which the "colored cusses" whose ancestral stock once worshipped fetishes in Afri ca, figure as heroes and heroines, and wherein men, of Southern birth and white faces are "no better than they should be," viewed from the imagina tive Beeeher's stand-point. The name of the female, since she ceased to be a Beecher, is Harriet B. Stowe. She had some peculiar notions, religiously which she has given to the world lately. Wri ting of Sunday schools, she says: "if the different churches of a city would erect a building where there should be a billiard table, one or two nine-pin alleys, a reading-room, garden and grounds for ball-playing, or inno cent lounging, they would do more to keep their young people from the ways of sin, than a Sunday School." How do some of our good Lacrosse admirorsof,and believersin, the Beech er stock like these recommendations? Which of the religious denominations in our city will take the necessary steps for the erection of such a building as Uncle Tom's Harriet recommends as a suitable auxilary establishment for a well conducted Sunday school? Under the progressive ideas of Puri tanism we may expect to hear some of our modern divines announce from the pulpit, after a fervent prayer, that at tlie &l?pennfeV<le'nl hflSumiay"' school', will play the deacons a four handed gameof billiards, of five hundred points, for a new Bible; or hear one minister challenge another to roll him a string of ten pins for a new contribution box! it will be a startling novelty for a lit tle time perhaps, to see a champion bat suspended over the pulpit of the relig- shop, boasting the best nine at base ball, among those who go to Ziou by the Beecher route. If this system of keeping "young people from the ways of sin" is to come into general use—if billiard rooms and nine-pin alleys are suitable adjuncts for the Sunday school, it certainly seems to us that a tirst class saloon should al so he thought of. After billiard and nine pins, "drinks all around" would be the thing, and afford a means for in culcating tine moral sentiments, relig ious toasts, and pious maxims. New converts should pay for the "celestial cock-tails," "evangelical juleps," or "angelic Tom and Jerry." Whenever a minister received a "raise of wages" he should "stand the whiskey"—and appropriations for benevolent purposes could be decided by rubbers at "peak nuckle," or "seven up." Is there any thing more improper or out of charac ter in these suggestions, than in the ideas advocated by Mrs. Stowe. The fiendish character ofthe religious precepts inculcated by New England fanatics has driven from Sunday schools and churches hundreds and thousands, and it is by such artifices as those sug gested above, that the bloorl-thirsty big ots seek to fill up their ranks and kindle a new interest In their pernicious sys tem, borrowing of their father, the dev il, some of his chief attractions. It is not at all out of character for New Eng land, hut will seem to those not living in the "brain of the Republic," (as the egotists term their narrow-minded sec tion,) a little out of character to yoke the temples ofthe Living God with bil liard rooms and nine-pin alleys. What will be the next freak of Beecher Chris tianity ? Lacrosse Democrat. PERT ANSWER. —Some years ago the best pilot belonging to Boston was nam ed James Tilley. In his youth lie had met with an accident which had caused him to become badly humpbacked. He wasagenialsortof a man, much liked, ad was always called upon to pilot ships-of-war out of the harbor. One day he took out a British frigate; and, as he was leaving the ship, a pompous officer on board called out,— "I say, old fellow, what have you got on your back?" "Bunker HiU!" replied Tilley. "Per haps you have heard of that place be fore." '•TOM, who did you say your friend B. married?" "Well,he married forty thousand dollars—l forgot her other name." VOL. 61.—WHOLE No. 5.374 TIIESVMjUT OF THE KOOKY HOFA TA IVS j A correspondent making a tourofthe j Rooky Mountains, speaking of the i beauty of the snow-flowers and the grandeur of the scenery, says: Another quarter of an hour, and the steeps fell back in front, leavingalove ly Alpine meadow, dotted with clumps of pine, the vivid green of its turf sprinkled with snowy star-floWeiw, and th creek of icy crystal winding through it. I was delighted when Mr. Byers gave the word to unsaddle. It was barely three quarters of a mile, he said, to the summit of the Pass. Whether we would cross was still a doubtful matter, and before attempting it both beasts and men mu.it be fed.—The former were turned loose to graze at will, with their long lariats dragging after them ; the latter unhooked the cups from their button-holes, opened theeoffee-bags, out the ham with hunting knives,and par took of the biscuits which were not sufficiently u sad." The water of the brook was so intensely cold that it al most made one scream. Yet immedi ately out of anl through it grew a flow er so purely beautiful that we all cried out with admiration on discovering it. Out of a ring of broadly ovate leaves (under the water) rosea straight stem, twelve to fifteen inches in height, crowned at the top with a cluster of dark crimson velvet flowers, about the size and with the rich mealy bloom of the polyanthus. It is called, here, the •Alpine primrose,' but Iknowofneith er cowslip or primrose that will com pare With it. The odor is very peculi ar, resembling that of Russian leather. Here is a treasure for our florists. While we took our lunch and rested our bones, Mr. Byers and White dis cussed the passage of the mountains. Directly in front of us a depression in the flr-clad ridge indicated the summit of the Pass, on eitherside ol' whiph bald, snowy peaks rose considerably above the timber line. White had crossed the range last week, with a drove of twenty-two Government horses; but lie had gone considerably to the north ward of the Pass, in order to avoid the snows. It was a question whether we should re-open the old trail, or follow his example and climb the frightful looking steep on our right to a point beyond the timber. Being a green hand, I said nothing but felt relieved when the Pass was selected, for the snows had been melting very rapidly, and I was convinced that we could fal sify the predictions of our friends. The horses were saddled, the mules repacked, and wo set out upon our un iT&rwrir w bM the meadow; and even where it had melted, the soil was elastic, treacherous hog, that we did not venture to ride. On all sides rills came rushing down, uprooted trees barred the way, or pools of black mud had collected. It was impossible to follow the trail, although we could trace it by tiie marks of the shovels. Slowly, in single tile, stoop ing every two minutes to lean upon our horses' necks and gasp for breath, spat tered with mud and wet with snow- I water, we climbed, through the forests, j taking heart with tiie knowledge that ■ this was our last hard pull. The trees j rapidly grew thinner, the roaring rills became noiseless threads of water, the : snow-drifts over-lapped each other and i must be waded, and then—the steep suddenly flattened and a keen wind swept over the summit of the Pass. It is a sharp crest, with not ten yards between the oppositedeclivities. I Tore there was an open space covered with bunch grass among the fields of snow. We were just at the limit of timber, a little more than 11,000 feet above the level. No general panorama of the range is visible, but there are inclosed views to the east and west. —Behind us a sweep of bleak, frosty summit, too near, (apparently) too hard and sharp ito be beautiful. Before us, far away I over the deeps of endless dark green i forest, a grand Alpine range, Lifting there A thousand shadow-penciled valleys And snowy dells in a golden air." i Still further, thirty or l'orty miles be : hind it,arose twogreat snowy pyramids, ! evidently beyond the North Peak, and not inferior to Mont Blanc. This view was superior iu ail elementswf simplic ity to anything I had ever seen since | entering the mountains. K lY?!o\i> PHOTOGRAPHS THE JAC- OlilAS. Henry J.Raymond, theeditorof the New York Time*, who liu-s been forced from his support of the President by the clamors of the Radicals, but a few | weeks ago published the following pen pictureof the Radical wing of the Re publican party. The fidelity of the > nicture is so striking, that no one can mistake the originals of the different! portraits. "And more powerful for mischief j than all of these combined, were com- j missioned officers whose official record was bad. * * With no higher views of patriotic duty while the great conflict was going on, than personal aggrandizement, they have no higher conception of honor and right as polit ical partisans now thai the the strife is over. Rut here is what Raymond says of the Itadiculs: "It has been the misfortune of the Republican party that so many of its I adherents have sought—as it were pur -1 posely—to make it appear in the ehar | acter of a sectional disunion organiza | lion. A class of cam p followers, thrown out of employment by the termination jof hostilities—men who suffered neither in purpose nor in property while the war lasted— have made themselves es pecially conspicuous as agents of dis cord and sectional malice during the past eighteen months. Some of them were unnecessary but unscrupulous at taches of Provost Marshals' offices; oth i t*rs were speculators in cotton and vari ! ous descriptions of loose Southern property; yet another set had a stock of Northern philanthropy, in which they dealt, wherever paying prices were to be had; and, more powerful for mischief than any or all these com bined, were COMMISSIONED OFFICERS WHOSE Ol'l'K 'I Ar, KF.COKD WAS HAD. The accession of of such men to any party could only be an in jury, and to the extent to which they might IK* able to mould its policy — A | CALAMITY. With no higher views of | patriotic duty While the great conflict i was going oh, higher conception of honor and of right as political parti sans now tliat the strife is over. And whatever error of judgement there may bochargableagainst the President or against Conservative Republicans who have given his policy an indepen dent support, there has been nothing in the whole record of the Republican party so fatal to its permanent influ ence and jMjtver as its association with the tribe of mischief-makers whose for tunes were, broken when the armies of the Confederacy surrendered to Urant. Their baneful influence has not only been felt hero in their native hauats, where they only preach malice and uneharitableness a f will, but it spreads itself all over the country, and is felt, to-dav, more than anywhere else, in the subjugated States ; stirring up strife between master and servant, and keep ing alive the flames of discord between sections and races." JOKE OA' ROII. Stephen C was a jovial soul, and hesitated not to play a trick on anyone. Among his acquaintances was a young man and a young lady, both of whom stammered very badly. They were unacquainted with each other. Bob F , the young man alluded to, was quite sensitive, and to think that any one was making fun of his defect made him frequently fly into a passion. It was Stephen's fortune to meet them at a party, and he soon de termined on a joke. "Miss Sue," said lie, approaching his lady friend, "may I have the pleasure of introducing to you one of my ac quaintances, a worthy young man?" ''Cer-cer-cer-cer-tainly, sir." Away he started for Bob F . "Bob, old fellow, here is a nice girl. I want to introduce you. Come on." "Does she taw-taw-talk?" "Yes —like blazes." So off they started and soon approach ed the side of the lady. Stephen intro duced them and immediately withdrew to one side that he might see how they would manage each other, when his ears were greeted with the following conversation : "How are you enjoy-joy-joying your 'VUi-VVLUJiir. mqrm ?" it is ra-ra-rather warm." Bob's brow contracted; but he re itrained his feelings and continued : "1 pre-r-r-presume you are acquaint ed with most of those pr-present." " Ye-ye-yes, sir, with all, be-be-be lieve," said she, smiling." But that smile ruined her forever in Bob's estimation, for, hastily rising, he exclaimed, "By th-th-thunder! ma-ma-dam, if that is the wa-wa-way you make f-f-fun of a f-f-fellow's infi-firmities, you may I go to gr-grass." Stephen laughed immoderately all : the time, and was subsequently called to account for the trick ; but his good j nature drove away all bad feelings. A WOMAN'S FIGHT WITH INDIANS. —The following is from the Tehama California, Observer: "L. Hessick, who runs a pack train between Red Bluff and May-fork of Trinity, gives the par ticulars of a daring exploit of a lady. Mrs. Sarah Douelson, formerly a resi dent of Red Bluff, is living in a log house on the trail, with her children and her father. A few days ago her father went out huntingstoek, and Mrs. Donelson was looking after her poultry a short distance from the house. Sud denly live Indians made their appear ance. Mrs. Donelson started for the house, and was intercepted bv two In | dians. Throwing them from her, a j third eaughther by the shoulder. She j knocked him down, and reaching the i house in safety, barred the door. The ; Indians rented one or more rifles on the window levelled at the woman, who I approached them, took down her fath i cr's rifle and returned the tire of the In . dians through the aperture.-, or 'chinks' jof the log house. On attempting to cock her gun Mrs. Donelson found that the thumb of her right hand had been shot away by an Indian bullet, but us ing her lefthandshe soon had the pleas are of knowing that her would-be mur derers had, retreated, whether with i whole hides or not she could not tell. Muscle, courage and self-possession won i a victory—one against five, and that | one a woman. We challenge the State ; to exhibit an instance in Indian tight | ing wherein a woman lias acquitted j herself more creditably." AN absent minded professor, in going out of the gateway of his college, ran against a cow. In the confusion of the moment, he raised his hat and exclaim ed, " I beg your pardon nnulame." Soon after he stumbled against a lady in the street; in sudden recollection of his for mer mishap, he called out, "Is that you again, you brute?" WHY is twice ten the same as twice eleven ? Because twice ten is twenty and twice eleven is twenty-two. WHEN is literary work like smoke? When it comes in volumes.
