In their depth, at a date not certainly known, but before historians had grown sharp and critical, there dwelt a covy named Borthold Zanringer.

His I -d wis a heap of pine leaves, and, during a part of the year, he fed like tho beasts and birds, upon fruits and nuts. But this utter want of culture was not without its modicum of good, in that it gave him fnl*y back nature. The sun, andjrind. and falling rain shapsd his form to teagnifi sent proportions and knit it to fir|rtjneas and strength.

To tiis trained ear the foliage of each different fee, rustling and tossing in the bmzo, prn )unced, with curious certainty, its name, age, and histoiy.

"Fortnne conies to him who ex pects as well as se«ks her," he thought. "T expect her always—I shall seek her when the hour comes." Meantime he was not idle, lie straightened the clay walls of the hovel, put on a new roof of leaves and boughs, and hoyght a new pot for the chimneyless hearth. This he kept also well supplied with game, saying the while, "Poverty is cunning it putwits even a fox." But when his father urged him to get a wife, he replied, "No! no! better alone than in bed company.

Tt of splendid possibilities, which fixed ils-Jf in the memory*, and haunted the fkney of all who beheld him. On the evening of the fourth day from that on which he set out, Berthold was a^ain In the mountain hut. "He who journeys sees for two—himself and the kinsmen at home," said the elder Zahringer. "Tell us about the great city." "There were plenty of fine houses crowd ing on every side," answered Berthold, "and a rush and roav of men, and the flaunting of banners, and trampling of-horses, and clash ing of steel, and braying of trumpets,—a great glare and dazzle yet I could see noth ing distinctly but the Emperor's daughter. £he rode her coal-black horse as if she and the animal were one, and her white robes lay over his glossy sides as the winter snow lies over the black crags of the Brinkersthl." "Pshaw!" muttered the old man. "To think of looking at a baby girl when one might see brave soldiers with their spears, and battle-axes, and shining swords." "I have seen soldiers and swords before," returned Berthold, ".but I never saw or dreattied of anything so beautiful as the maiden. I lived a whole life while she was passing by." "You speak like a lover," said tho old man with a sneer. "Possibly," replied the youth. "VPho knows I may yet marry a Princess." Thenceforth Bcithold dreamed much, but he wrought also. Through the whob dis trict there was no arm so strong as his to bring down the giant trees, no skill like his to build their great funeral pyres, to cover them with chips, and moss, and fine braise, to arrange the npertures, and to fire the heap, and none watched with equal fidelity for each change in the smoke or vapor, re cording upon the exterior of the mound the curious stories of its hidden processes. Suc cess awaited him —not the slow, small suc cess reaching to a better cabin and a warm er hearth—but such as gave his name and fame in the early history annals. Digging for earth to mix with the dust of former coal ings, he perceived some white stones which gleamed under the rays of the mid-day sun striking hotly down the forest opening.— His heart beat quickly. Were they—could they be—yes, they were certainly silver!— Berthold told no one of his discovery. He still labored at his trade, but less diligently, for much of his time was spent in collecting the ore and melting it into bars. These he concealed for Juture use, and continued to live as scantily and coarsely as before. Eight busy years had thus gone by, when the Emperor, flying before his rebellious vassals, took refuge in the Kaizerstuhl moun tain^ in the Breisgan. The little army he led th:ther was constantly diminished by de- offered his daughter's hand to the man who should effectually aid him. Berthold had already left his nook in the forest, saying, "The nobleman's calamity is the peasant's opportunity," and he soon heard of the proc lamation. lie immediately repaired to the Kaizerstuhl, obtained an interview with the Emperor, ar.d promised his whole fortune, if required, providing the Emperor would af ter learning his extraction, formally ratify the terms proposed in his proclamation. sersi n and death, while fortress after foit- -vyliicli was a thing they would never submit ress fell into the hands of his enemies. He chaf.nl at his compelled inaction, and, finally,! The Emperor hesitated, but utter ruin was close upon him, and n~ccssity conquer ed pride. "I had not anticipated this poss ibility," he said "but bring me tlir.^c hun dred bars of silver, such as you have des cribed, and your marriage with the Princcss shall be celebrated at once. In order, also, that you may from the first appear suitable at court, 1 here create you Duke of Znhring, and assign you the revenues of the province.' "When it shidl have been reconquered, Sire," replied Berthold, with a laugh so mer ry and hopeful that the Emperor could but join in his glee. "Who is that asked the Princcss Agnes, looking after Berthold as he left the camp. "A nobleman in disguise," replied the young Graf ofNordheim, who, however, only guessed as much from the ease with which the stranger obtained admission and the manner of his departure. "He has a finer person than any mm at court," said the Princess—"except yourself,' she added smilingly, seeing the Grafs coun tenance fall and thenceforward she watch ed only for the coming of Zahringer. In due time he appeared, without attend ants, but with several horses laden with ore, which he had led, for security, through for est paths known only to himself. Trusty hands soon placed the precious freight in safety. Then, clad in garments furnished by the Emperor from his own not overflow ing wardrobe, inatod his dusky face. His was! right hand, her hair in a golden net, hor ifawing Jr.'aut v, but the fascination neck and arms covered with choice pearls, -W'' W Berthold was publicly received with all the ceremony which the camp per mitted, was confirmed in his new rank, and formally betrothed to the Princess. Soon after the strangely assorted pair were united in marriage by the royal chaplain. Furnished with arms, Berthold soon learn ed to use them and, in spite of his inexpe rience, his genius was quickly felt by the 4orlorn band. His sagacity, coolncgs, and celerity were equally lauded. Liberal pay, rapidly filled his ranks with good troops successes, slight at first, but tily becoming more important, added to their numbers while bribes and promises effected them still more. In less than a year the Emperor had retrieved his losses, and sat upon his throne more securely than ever. And now, in the best armor of the period, which flashed daz zlingly above a suit crimson silk, his horse covered with nodding plumes and houslncs sprinkled with gold stars, Berthold passed over the same ground where, nine years be fore, he had watchod another gorgeous pro cession as a simple peasant, happy in his new suit of chamois leather, and strong in the heavy knife belted at his side. At his Ml miriiii W i ipg.|rfiMn n-|^ittffar• -nr V i V wmnnm and her white dress edged with rubies and emeralds, rode the maiden who had opened to his untutored fancy a new world of be wildering beauty. Then, she was so much above him that he scarcely dared to contem plate her loveliness. Now, a beloved and loving wife, she, ever and anon, looked into his face with a glance of merriment or weari ness as she was amused or bored by the de tails of the progress. He felt awed at the change. It was so entire, so wonderful, could it last Then a strange, dreamy mood crept over him. He felt as if under a magic spell. He half be lieved himself the sport of a malignant spirit, who p'ayed with his helplessness, and almost dreaded a hideous si-nal at which the whole pageant should vanish. Only thowarm touch of a little hand, which sent a thrill of joy to his inmost heart, a half-whispered word from lips whose accents were priceless, could as sure him that the events of the past months were genuine facts and not the material of a baseless vision. Good fortune continued to attend him.— From him sprang a powerful house, conspic uous in the annals of Germany. Ho built the castle of Zahringen and the city of Frei burg, and erected and endowed the monas teries of St. Ruprecht'and St. Peter. Yet, busy and brilliant as was the close of his career, the old chronicler hirfts tnat it was less happy than the care-free, gleeful life which he led beside his co^l mounds in the Dark Forest. [rrom the Atlantic Monthly.] Tfifi Front-Teeth and the Grind er*. Once on a time u mutiny arose among the teeth of a worthy man, in good health and blessed with a sound constitution, common ly known as Uncle Samuel. The catting teeth, or incisors,ant} the eye-teeth, or can ines though not nearly so many, all counted nor so large, nor so strong as the grinders, and by no means so white, but on the con trary, very much discolored, began to find fault with the grinders as not good enough company for them. The eyti-teeth, being very sharp and fitted for seizing and tearing and standing out tallar than the rest, claim ed to lead them. Presently, one of them complained that it ached very badly, and then another and another. Very soon the cutting teeth, which pretended they were supplied by the same nerve, and were proud of it, began to ache also. They all agreed that it was the fault of the grinders. About this time, Uncle Samuel, having used his old tooth-brush (which was never a good one, having no stiffness in the bris ties) for four years, took a new one, recom I mended to him by a great numbr of people I as a homely but useful article. Thereupon all the front-teeth, one after another declar ed that Uncle Samuel meant to scour them t0 though the whole civil'zed world was Cfilling on them to do s0 So they all ins s. ted on getting out of the sockets in which they had grown and stood for so many years. But 'he wisdom-teeth spoke up for the oth ers and said, "Nay, there be but twelve of yoq front t:eth, and there be twenty of grinders.— We are the strongest and a good deal near est the muscles and the joint, but we cannot spare you. We have put up with your black stains, your jumping aches, and your snap pish looks, and now we are not going to let you go, under the pretence that you are to be scrubbed white if you stay. You don't work half so hard as we do, but you can bite the food well enough, which we can grind so much better than you. We belong to each other. You must stay." Thereupon the front-teeth, first the cani nes or dog-teeth, next the incisors oi cutting- teeth, proceeded to declare themselves out of their sockets, and no longer belonging to the jaws of Uncle Samuel. Then Uncle Samuel arose in his wrath and shut his jaws tightly together, and swore that he would keep them shut till those aching and discolored teeth of his went to pieces in their sockets, if need were, rather than have them drawn, standing, as some of them did, at the very opening of hb threat and stomach. And now, if you wili please to observe, all those teeth are beginning to ache worse than ever, and to decay very fast, so that it will take a great deal of gold to stop the holes that are forming in them. But the great white grinders are as sound as ever, and will remain so until Uncle §amuel thinks the time has come for opening his mouth.— In the mean time they keep on grinding in a quiet way, though the others have had to stop biting for a long time. When Uncle Samnel opens his mouth, they will be as ready for work as evir but those poor dis colored teeth will be tender for a great while and never be so strong as they were before they foolishly declared themselves out of their sockets.

OTTUMWA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2,1861. Peace, Proposition* of and the Prow. From IHcklnson'* Speech in New York. "It Is not only the duty, but it ffrfvi lege of everv citizen, of every party, of every age and of both sexes, to take hold of this matter and exercise the strongest vigilance in attempting to put down this Rebellion. Bnt we arc told that war is dang TOUS Didn't we know it before [Laughter fiut the Rebellion must be put down nil the more —more readily, more thoroughly, and more energetically. A menagerie of wild beasts would be dangerous, let loose in your city. Tt would be dangerous to shoot them, but it would be still more dangerous to let them run at large. Yon might do mischief in shooting the animals you might injure some one, but you must not allow them to go on in their career if destruction for all time War is a dangerous and terrible thing, and particularly a civil war inaugurated under such ferocious circumstances as this. But it must be taken hold of all the nyire thor ouchly, And he who attempts to palter with it is doubly gniltv, for the very reason that it is dangerous. It is a rebellion that de mands the whole energy of the American ncople, and it should have it, in the name of the Government, hv the memories of the fa thers of the Revolution, bv all the great memories that cluster around our history, by the hope of a free government on earth, by the great principles of Liberty which have been achieved for us, and which have cone on conqueringand to conquer until they have wrung envy and admiration from the whole •civiliz world.

[Applanse.] And so it will be, except for that miscreant Peace par ty. Applause and hisses.] That partv that attempted to cry peace, peace, when there is no peace, and they know it. [Applause.]— That party that stimulates rebellion that party that apologises for and encourages re hellion, and ke&ps it on foot. Had it not States had it not been for treacherous and treasonable individuals in the loval States, this rebellion, in all human probability, would have been put down before this. But it has been encouraged by the hope that it was to have aid, comfort, and assistance in the loyal States. I has had every reason for suppo sing so. But when it sees its aids going down to Fort Lafayette and Fort McIIenrv to take lodsincrs, it will then entertain a differ ent kind of idea. know there are some who are opposed to war, although they do not take sides with the Rebels, and are for main taining the Union. Indeed the Pence party in this State is getting rather into that posi tion just now. It reminds me of the words of doggerel poet in a fable of the beasts and birds in terrible confVct. He says "The prudent bat joined neither oapsg, been for the treacherous press of the loyal •'dual credit, and you owe it to us now.— Among so many teeth and claws, Until in battle's thickest heat He thought he saw one side would beat And then he joined the strongest part. And fought with all his might and heart, At length it turned the other way And back he flew to win the day." Now the peace party are going to occupy just that position. They are going to fly back and forth. Wh'n th y think there is a prospect for this rebellion, then they will be great big peace men and talk large. When the}- see that the rebellion is about to be crushed, as thev will see, if they look on, [great applau-e] then thoy will sing sin til.

They tell you he has laid his hand upon the liberty of the press, and interfered with that, and thoy aje distressed upon the subject because they are gentlemen of prin ciple, not to say interest [laughter]—they arc distressed that in this great free Gov ernment the President of the United States should not permit an incendiary, treasona ble press to distil its venom through every channel of society. They tell you that he suspended the habeas corpus, and therein he has violated the great and cardinal principle of American liberty, and there he is con deinned. But they never find condemnation for the treacherous miscreants who are at tempting to destroy the Government. I will tell you where President Lincoln could have done good service not only in suspending the habeas carpus, not only in laying his hand upon a traitorous press, not only in arresting individuals and sending them to Fort Lafayette or Fort McIIenry, but in sus pending more of the parties to this treason. [Prolonged applause and waving of hats.— A VOICK—"It is not too late yet." Renewed applause.] No it is "better late than never.' The President has done just what he has a right to do—precisely what I commend him for and stand by him for. [Applause He had a perfect right to do it. It was his jt v and if he had not discharged it he would have deserved impeachment, to se'ze every treacherous spy, every wretch spotted and leprous, who was attempting to snp and mine his country's Constitution, and betray his Government. Printed treason has no immunity over spoken treason or written treason. The Press has a risjlit in ordinary times to discuss freely all th measures of the Government and that is what we mean by the liberty of the Press. It is something beyond a more parrot cry. Those who have been raising a parrot-cry of ''liberty of the press" when they mean the destruction of the Government, should le served as parrots —they should be put iu cages. [Applause and laughter.) But it is one thing to discuss the princi­ ples a Government, and another to tap and mine and betray and destroy the Gov ernment. A press has no more right to des troy the Government than I have. It ha« no more right to travel and send forth mis siles than I have. It is the same, except that it is more mischievous in proportion to its power of discrimination. And when a press attempts to undermine the Government to apologize for and moderate and aid re bellion, that press is guilty of treason, and it ris tho duty of the Executive of tho United Htates. acting as Commander in-Chief, for ^himself and for others, to put It down A Few Plaiiii Tin lis. Oov. Kitkwood, in a speech made at Des Moines, on the 4th inst., told a few plain and wholesome truths, which it is important the pu'dic should know, not only as a vindi cation of himself, but as an exhibit of what remains yet to be done by the peopTe of the State. We quote from the whatim report of the Register "It hr,s been Ssld that have not raised men fast enough. I have raised a"l that have been asked for. Iowa has poured forth her thousands as fast a* called for by the General Government It has been said that the Iowa volunteers have not been clothed as well and rapidly as they should have been clothed. That is your fault, not mine. I had not the money to do it. The clothes worn by the First, Second and Third Regiment^ t«-day have not been paid for Not a dollar has been paid for them. Three thousand men—among them your sons and brothers— are wearing cloths which are yet unpaid for. Much fault was found with me hccause your soldiers at Keokuk did not receive their poor pittance of pay, which they were to receive from the State for the period intervening be tween the t:mc of the eidistment in the ser vice of the State, and their acceptance into the service of th* United States. Thev were there without money to buy even tobacco or postage rlamps. You know as we'l as I that the Executive of this State had not a dollar to advancc to the soldiers. After they were mils'ered in at Keokuk, Ezekiel Clark, Iliram Price, of Davenport, and your speaker, bor rowed on their private credit the money, some thirty thousand dollars, which was re quired to pay them, and paid it, and the debt is unsatisfied to-day. T.he Executive of this State drew some $5,000 out of the State Treasury which he had no more right by law to take for that purpose than one of you the baUr.cc we borrowed on our indi- upon my return notices of protested paper of mine to the amount of $G,000 more and •lso not le?s than seven of those little tickets which bankers send out to give notice of notes falling due. Now it is not agreeable to a man who has hitherto kept his commer cial credit unimpaired thus to find it dis honored and it is still more displeasing when he is curscd all over the State for not doing what he was powerless to accomplish, and it is right you should know it But let us pass from this. It is not agre able to you nor to me. I only mention it because it is right you should know here that the clothes your oons and brothers are wearing to-day are not paid for, not because I am unwilling to pay them, but because I have not the means. It is right you should know that the mopey your boys had. did not come from your State Treasury, but was borrowed upon individual credit, and is not yet refunded. You should at least endeavor to help furnish the means to refund this money by subscribing for State bonds. I grev pathetic in a newspaper appeal a few days since, asking you to subscribe for State bonds. Now there is scarcely a man of you who, if life, limb or property were at stake, could not take $100 at least of Iowa State Bonds, and thus furnish the means to cam on this work, and have it done right And let me say to you plainly—though as a can didate I ought rot talk so to you—that in so doing you would be performing your duty as well as in carping and fault-finding. Now I am probably ma v inga mistake. I don't know. I ought perhaps make handsome vows, speak soft and honied wor *s, things I cannot do but I will tell y. u the truth as I understand and believe it, and if you don't like it, you have the remedy in your own hands, you know. But it is due to you for me to mention what Towa has already done in this war. She has sent into the field and now has in active service in Missouri, count ing the Iowa First—and every man in Iowa will always love to count the Iowa First— [Loud and long continued applause,] Seven thousand men 1 She has in camp at Keokuk, 1000 men under Col. Busscy. She has i i Burlington another full regiment of cavalry under Col. Warren. "She has in Towa City a regiment consisting of 900 men, waiting the arrival of another company of 100 men, to complete the regiment which was to have been under the command of Col. Bennett. And here let me say of Col. Bennett, he has proved himself to be the patriot as well as the soldier. He has acted the man. When he found that his appointment as Colonel would cause heart-burnings aud dissensions in the regiment, he said to me :—"Place me where you please, but have the regiment formed." [Applause.] This was what Col. Bennett did. At Davenport there is a full regiment of Infantry, commanded by Col. Hoffman, and a full regiment of cavalry whose regimental officers have not yet been appointed. W e have, I hope, to-day at Du buque, a full n^vment of infantry under Col Vandever." That is what Towa has done 1 It is what your State Authorities have done without money to do with, hyt I will not speak of that again for I am satisfied you would rather hear of something else." The Chicago Tribune says over sixteen thousand troops have been raised in that city, and the Congressional District, in which it is situated. Twvlve regiments of troop, went sent to the seat of war by New York in the fotf days ending Wednesday. pii'li, 1PUHV.I JiKiumi Another Rallying Cry From Thoina* Franri* l*Ieag licr.

And he drank liberty at his prison gates.-- wa5 a If there be a fault in this connection on whom does it rest I do not like to say these things, but justice to myself compels me to say them. The people of Iowa have not furnished their Executive with money for the expenditures which he was required by law to make, as they should have done. The bank of this city holds my protested notes for $fi,000, and have borrowed so much that I thought it was $12,000 until I called at the bank to-day and inquired.

A few years since there had been a Know Nothing party, the cardi nal principle'of which was the proscription of foreign born citizens, but had that party le gitimately elected a President he would have sustained him. [Cheers.] If such a doc trine were not assented to, then, instead of the American principle, which is that "the will of the majori.y through the ballot box, we substitute the desperate Mexican rule, which is that of revolution. Col. Meagher continued Now, I understand that there are some of my countrymen in this State who do not go in for this war. [Cries of "It is a mistake."] Well, I want to put tho me and said this "A certain Governor a few years since disbanded our Irish compa nies." [A voice—"That is so."]" That is not only so, but that is the fact. Is that a reason why you should give over your coun try, your honor, and your Government which has been vjlely insulted Bat your vengeance is not in holding aloof from the cause in which the flag is imperiled yourvcngeance is to prove that you are better than those that were native born. But no matter what may have happened in the little State Of Connecticut your duty has not been to Connecticut your duty has been to the Union. [Cheers.] When the Iris.U emi grant came here it was not to Connecticut, or New York, or Alabama, or any State, but to the United States. As that oath was ab solute, s~ should the object of it be com plete. Then I have heard it said, why not leave the American- to fight this battle for themselves Why should not we Irishmen just fold our arms, fill our pipe•» [laughter] and smoke away and leave them to their distress and to their disgrace? Very good, if we cculd afford to do so.— Very good, if this fight were notour fight.— I say that this fight is an Irish fight.— [Cheers.] And if Irishmen do not sustain the only government under which they have had reputation, fortune, and good name, thai any one who speakes to me of Irish liberty is a dreamer and driveller.— [Cheers.] This is our matter. Thousand." upon thousands of Irish emigrants have come here thousands upon thousands of Irish graves have been sunk in this Ameri can soil. With the Revolution, Irish names and fortunes are strongly identified. Go to New York and ride down Broad waj', and an obelisk rises and you see the name of Emmet on it. On the porch of that same church you sec the name of Richard Montgomery. In the times of Catholic emancipation there was no greater fi i:ty} to that cause than the United States. [Cheers.] I have merely to ask my countrymcn stand by this cause, to stand by the stars and the stripss, to stand by the government which has been legitimately elected. Is this to be a question of party If so, it were better that this country had never been nurtured into free dom. For my part, I care not what preju dice or counsels the administration may have had. It is enough for me that the men in power come and take possession of the seat of government under the credentials of the popular will and under the solomn sanction of the constitution. That being done I stand for it with all my heart, with all the vigor that is in my arm, with all the fire that is in my brain, with tnv life, if that is anything worth [Cheers. Many a time have 1 been taken by the hand, and asked by Irishmen,"why throw your life a way, why r'.sk it $ My answer is this, that if the United States does not as sert supremacy there is no hope for Ireland.

An abolitionist could not have locked up on this body of colored recruits of the South ern army without strongly suspecting that his intense sympathy for the "poor slave'11 was not appreciated, that it Was wasted, on an ungrateful subject. The arms of these colored warriors were rather mysterious. Could it be that tlioso gleaming axes were intended to drive into the thick skulls of abolitionists the truth, to which they are wilfully blind, that their ir terierence in behalf of Southern slaves '14 neither appreciated nor desired or that these shovels were intended to dig trench for the interment of their carcasses?
