We glean the following interesting in
cident of the late war from Phelp's Life
of Grant :
When the steamers ran into Vicks
burg after the capture -of that city by
our forces, for the purpose of carrying
the iurloughed soldiers hoiae, some of
the Captains took advautage of the sol
diers' eagerness to charge the most outra
geous rates. One of these heartless
money grabbers was brought to terms by
Grant in the following manner :
The steamer had its decks crowded
with soldiers. Grant asked a man stand
ing on the wheel-house and giving orders
"Are you the Captain of this boat?"
"How many soldiers have you on
"About twelve hundred and fifty."
"What have you charged for tare to
1 From ten to twenty-five dollars each,
"Ten to twenty-fiva dollars each ! Is
that all? Why that is too modorate ! It
is a pity that you should have to take the
boys for so small a sum. You had better
wait awhile." ?
Speaking to the officer on board, he
walked away. Then the steam whistled,
the bell rang, and the wheels began to
move slowly, but for somo reason she was
not cast off. The men could not under
stand it until, in a few moments, the or
der came for the guard to keen the
steamer until the Captain paid back all
over seven dollars taken for fare from
each officer and all over five dollars from
each soldier and the ordeT was obeyed.
The men knew that they had been
victimized, but felt helpless. When they
learned what the General had done, they
gave three cheers lor Grant with a will.

A Marriage Feast Singular Customs iu
A wedding dinner iu Normandy is a
seriou.9 affair to undertake, and demands
both time and patience on the part of a
novice. As for the futbttits, they seem
to enjoy it very highly. The company
sat down to eat at noon, and when we
left at noon the next day they had not
yet left the table, but proposed staying
another twenty-four hours. Although
there was occasionally some sleepiness
among the conviver, there was no lack of
gayety. Roguish old uncles detailed all
the old staple wedding jokes, more or less
indecent, which were laughed at as
heartily as if they had never been heard
of before, and teasing old aunts and
grand dames told or hinted all the old
scandal that might hector or bring the
blushes td the faces of any of the young
Incessantly the unfailing bottles pass
ed round from hand to hand, thcglasses
clicked together, and the health of every
body was toasted over and over airain.
During the festivities it is the duty of
the groomsman to sit by the bride and
see that she is" served with everj'thing
on the table; also, he must watch, or at
the moment when his eye3 are turned
away, or when he has left her pjace for
an instant, another will steal away the j
bride, take her to another seat and as
sume the honors of groomsman. This
causes a great many stratagems and fur
nishes from time to time a laughing
scene. The company would often leave
the table and walk in procession, two by
two, around the streets. The drink was
wine and that favorite of the Norman
countrymen apple brandy. The latter
is, undoubtedly, the most villainous
liquor in the world ; forty rod whisky is
nectar in comparison.
The farmers distill their own brandy,
and make it of a very high proof, from 7
to 10 per cent, higher than other bran
dies. Again, it is used when quite new,
and, in consequence, harsh. For any one
whose stomach is not already well cau
terized with drink, a single glass of
brandy is enough to make him sick for a
a week. How the people at the wed
ding were nble to do so, I cannot under
stand, but I know that for 24 hours they
continued to drink at short intervals of
this brandy, alternately with wine and
cider, yet nobody was seriously intoxi
cated, and I venture to say they contin
ued the operation for 24 hours more, yet
were able to go soberly enough to their
Wedding festivities, especially when
there is dancing, often lasts for three or
four days of a continual carouse, during
which nobody sleeps, unless it is to take
a nap in their chairs, at the table, or,
perhaps, lay down for a couple of hours.
The happy pair usually quit the . com-
fany at the end of" 24 hours or so, and
eave them to feast and frolic until fa
tigue compels them to go home.

Tobacco Dealers. Under the In
ternal Revenue Act of July 20, 1868, it
is provided that all taxes on tobacco and
snuffs shall be 'paid by stamps attached
to the paekages containing the same.
The following is an extract from Sec. 28 :
"After the first day of January, eighteen
hundred and sixty-nine, all smoking, fine
cut chewing tobacco or snuff shall be
taken and deemed as manufactured after
tho passage of this act, and shall not be
sold or offered for sale unless put up in
packages and stamped as prescribed by
this act and any persons who
shall sell or offer for sale, after the first
day of January, 1869, any smoking, fine
cut chewing tobacco or snuff not so put
up in packages and stamped, shall on con
viction be fined not less than five hun
dred dollars , , and imprison
ment not less than six months." Sec.
70 says, "The absence of the proper
, stamp on any package of manufactured
tobacco or snuff shall be notice to all per
sons that the tax has not been paid there
on and shall be prima facie evidence of
the non-payment thereof, and such to
bacco or snuff shall be forfeited to the
United States." - -
