One mUbt well stipiwse that this latter commander would imitate the reserve and silence ol his companion in misfortune, and not, ut toast, provoke any taunting re flections npon hta two abortive camnilnns. But this Is ? not Seymour's manner; it Is not prescribed In the school of taste in which he wis brought up and since his cap ttvlty he lias lost no opportunity ot creating ('Heel and tu iking an iinpregsloQ. It was the fortu e Of these two brlvud'Crs to be first marched into Orange Court House with about twelve hundred other prisoners. Ihoy were hnit.'d orpotite the railing which enclosed the Court House; but while Shaler stood lo a utli'tcnlly naturni manner, and with apparent unconcern, the other f urn shod ninn"' mei l to tho few spectators by bin stiidied attlttldes nnd highly etahorate glut ces. .-landing extremely erect, with one tnurnb muck in f.lar belt.Biul evidently lexardinK himself as an ob (>ct of in te> se interest in tlio yillage, lie tlrst looked up around tho windows to sue whether the women were peeping, and asking their own hearu who the proper young man in shoulder straps could be. Then looking down upon the sidewalk, where boim little boys, both white ami black, were (wo must con fess) ^nnuing. he tempered his t'amiliar smile with an sUHtero regard of control, and shot Inuignnnt Hashes from his dark eyes. This was apparantly all tbu notice he vouchsafed to go small a place as Oraugo. But now c uneS the absurd part of thealtalr. On arriving at t harlottesvllle, a larger town, able to turn out a greater crowd of spectators, this whipped brigadier bethought him of honoring the place so far as to i lilrosa his "l^llow citizens" at the railroad depot. The thing would seem Incredible, yet trustworthy gentle men avouch the fact that, by some uuaccountable but meet culpable connivance of the otlicer of tho guard, this creaturo was actually permitted to "make a speech" to the c Itiyens of Charlottesville. They even report tne substance of his stieech, which was to the following ef fect:? (ieneral Lee may possibly defeat General Crant and the federal army ; but wtiat of ttiaiT I trust that If he defe it biin he may follow np hhr succoss by taking Washington iDd burning it to the ground And let him net stop there; let bim capture and bum Itiltlmore, then advance on llllladnlphia nnd tnrrn that. Tlun, at (?w(, um ahiill have a united North , aavl ihaU begin to ih? to you what I tar is. This, from the ill starred brigadier who has nover done anything in the world but run away from Ftnnegan In Klorida and yield bimsell tft>, rescue or no rescue, at the tlrst veil of Ceorgiaus to the Wilderness. Wo Hud it bard to understand, first, why tho man w?? not "backed and gagged" bv toe guard -. and secondly, why he wax not hooted and pelted by the populace. The tr-ish that he uttered whs merely a sate piece of the most vu'.gar Yan kne braggadocio, virulent with all the spite which usually rankles in a mean nature. Yet we have heard Confeder ate citizens, apparently sane, absolutely compliment the "pluck" sud "dash"' of this miscreant's harangue Our i-eoftc, unhappily, have iu<b a diseased ap petite for oratory, aro so resolute to have every man "define his (Kisition," art to tan ft/ duped by the thnw of neri/thinfi spirited and piwky (in lavfjitaffri that they will eren /intern to the itnpmi-nt rant of a iteipicalU btinn like tint. If he canoot fight, he can at least talk His tongue is sharper than bis sword, if he cannot advance to the burning and plunder of Charlottesville, at the bead of his brigade, ho csn.at least, electrify toe cIMsens thereof by a small tirade ot delimit phraseology I On the whole, this whole scene is the acme of absurd Impropriety. The gnard who permitted it deserves pun iehment; and if tuch " tpeerhet " are to become a perma nent w't 'ii'ion, we do not see the use of buck and gag. More Prnyrrs Krqalrrd.
