A Ciivxct-:. L"t the men of honorable
military ambition be encouraged by the re-nu-mberaucu
of the fuct that the latu Major
Generul Sumner rose from the ranks, hav
ing entered the army us a private in 181!).
He died ripe in years, and his renown wns
Rksionation. Mr. James Kilgoro, late
ly appointed by tho Governor of this State
us Colonel of the first regiment in tlio first
brigade of militia of this State, wo are in
formed will resign his position. We regret
very much that his arrangements nro such
that he cannot accept. lie is well qualified
for the position, and would have made a
very efficient officer.
Acomiknt. A gentleman by the namo
of llorton was Kerlninly, if not mor
tally injured, on Monday last, a short dis
tance from this town, by having a wagon,
loaded with wood, fall upon him. He wns
driving on n sidling place, the ground was
vct nnd slippery, the wagon veered and up
set, and In the full his hands got caught in
the lines bringing him directly under the
Si'ORTixi) Itkm. Mr. A. J. Eiston,
owner of the celebrated Black Hawk stal
lion " David Hill," ha a ranch near Sun
Francisco, upon which he has made a race
track which is attracting considerable at
tention from Turfmen. The track is upon
marsh ground, drained by deep ditches,
nnd the course proper, which is heavily cov
ered with shells, is perfectly level, und is 44
feet wido. Tho track is very elastic, and
can be used without any dangor to the an
imals. For the Judges stand, Mr. Eusio'i hns
invented a revolving turret, by which the
officers of the race can observe the course
of tho horses without for un instant chang
ing position. Foul riding or any other
misconduct on tho part of the riders can
thus be easily detected. Coupled with this,
is the system of electric " starts " and
" stops." The hoof of each horse, at the
instant of crossing tho ecoie, strikes the
electric platform under their feet, and re
cord in tho stund tho relative positions by
stopping watches connected with tho dec
tic wire worked by the platform. As they
pas? by tho quarter poles a similar con
trivance drops a. flag at each quarter, so
that the time for tho quarters can be accu
rately marked at the turret, and at the out
come the same signal is given as at tho
start. If the legal profession go into the
business generally, something of this kind
wilt have to be adopted to secure fuirplay !
. To FotietflXKns. A bill ha8 been intro
duced into the rebel Congress to withdraw
all political privelegcs from foreigners, nnd
from native born white Americans who
were not In the Confederacy when the re
bellion commenced. 1st, We remark that
this bill slums thu door directly in the face of
the foreign cm'grnnt, who, long oppressed
nt home, seeks political enfranchisement on
American soil. He can enter the domains
of the Southern Confederacy, but must
ever exist there ns a " mud-sill." What
thinks German and Irish ndnpted citizens
of this ? Is it not Know Nothiiigism more
damnable and prescriptive than was ever
adopted before ? Let the military despo
tism of Jiff Davis prove a succcs, and in cv
cry foot of territory where wnves the Con
federate Hug, the foreigner, no matter what
his Intelligence, character or wealth may
be, will be held nnd treated ns ttn inferior,
nnd not worthy the association of a South
ern gentleman. Are our adopted citizens
prepared for this ?
2d, The sympathizers all over tho North
arc told in terms ns direct nnd positive ns
language can express it, that they can
never have nny political rights in the
Southern Confederacy. Their labors in
behalf of their southern masters nre to
avail them nnught. They nro not fit for
the companionship of Southern gentlemen.
They may fawn and npologize but can
never be recognized ns equals. Well
might tho Richmond Inquirer say, when it
beheld tho longings of theso men to meet
the Southrons once more in convention.
Assume nnv other shape but that." The
gallant nnd brave can have no other feel
ings than that of supreme contempt for
those who nre neither friends nor foes, but
nre a sort of n bastard go-between. All
remember the ridiculous position of Mr.
Beeson in the Roguo River Indian wars.
Ho wns a go-between abhorred by the
whites and despised by the Indians. He
said llint the whites were as much if not
more to blame than tho Indians, and he
would never volunteer, nor be drafted, to
fight the poor iiidinns. This is the song of
the sympathizers. 0, say they, tho North
is as much to blame ns the South, nnd I
will not volunteer or be drafted to fight the
dear South. It nimle no difference with
Bccson that the Indians hnd commenced
tho war, nnd were spreading devastation i
far and near, nor does it make any differ
ence witli the sympathizers that the rebels
lircd upon Fort Sumptcr, and trailed the
American Hug in the dust. How have the
IJeesons multiplied. No wonder thut the
rebels have passed a law forever disfran
chising such characters within the limits
of their domains.
Lost Illusions. What a singular pro
pensity men have of turning eveiy thinar
inside nut, of looking nt tho back ns well
U3 the front of a picture, ofennting the stat
ue from its pedestal to be sutsficd that it
is hollow and not to'n. The savngo who
Hist beholds his image in the mirror imme
diately darts behind the glass; thu child is
dissatisfied with its iiccoideou till it hits
ripped open the valve to see where the wind
anil the music come from. Man, savage,
and child mourn over their lost illusions, yet
persist in the processes by which they me
Wu arc not contented to sit before the
font-lights and witness tho pageant splen
dors that pass before our eyes; wu must go
behind the curtain, we must stand nt the
wings, we must guzo upon the black frame
work on which the canvass is street lied, we
must discover that the soft, rolling wnves
in the port of Cyprus nre nought but shak
en carpets, that Cherry and Fair Star car
ry their own galley about the stage, and
that Rosati instead of Hunting like a Sum
mer cloud to tin upper air, is null ud into
" ilirs" by a couple of stout mechanic '
worHing nt n block nnd pulley. 1- rout that
moment adieu to our pleasures, we nre no
longer in faiiy land, when we are witness
ing a fairy spectacle. Aladdin's palaces
smells of (ho lampnot the magic lamp
but thnt which is fed with whale oil or bus
baser lard. We no longer seo belbro ns airy
slyphides beings of another world but
Miss This or Miss Thnt, people are no lon
ger known by their theatrical mimes, but
Smiths, und Joneses, and Browns. It is
not the fairy Ardenello who glides over the
water in n car, drawn by swans, but Miss
Jemima Muggins, and her cur Is dirty paste
board, und her swans nro geese.
About four o'olock Thuumhiy, morning,
Edward Hill, alias Ilavis, made his escnpo
from tlio guard, at Camp linker. During
tho night lio, managed to saw off his shack
les, nnd under pretence- of tho necessity of
being taken to tho rear, was let out, and
whllo passing from tho guard house to tho
rear, ho made a break. Four shols wero
fired at him by tho guard, but unfortu'uiltoly
they nil missed their mark. Ho had been di'i
rested for murdering a soldier at tho Dulles

To JamksO'Mkaiia: As you, by the
publication of private letters, dishonorably
if not feloniously obtained by yon, seem to
invito nn investigation of personal matters,
I propose to relievo tho burden of your
more serious mental labors by u few bio
graphical sketches, the truthfulness nnd
beauty of which you cannot fail to rccoir
nizc. You once owned the Sr.NTiNKr. Of
fice, I believe. You sold thu same for a
valuable coieVdarntion to Messrs. Denllngcr
& Hand. You guuruntcd, in your bill of
sale, the correctness of your accounts ns
they stood upon the books. Is not this
correct ? Now, sir, ns to the sequel. A
large number of tho?c whom the books
showed to bo debtors had receipts in their
possession, which were subsequently present
ed by them, und allowed by the proprietors
of this paper. Sir, thero is a consistency,
unity and harmony in your character that
excites my admiration. You arc the prop
er person to publish a stolen letter, stolen
probably not by you, but by some one else,
but a letter which you full well knew that
you had no more right to the possession of,
than the felon who first took it from tlio
drawer of my office. It may be possible,
sir, that you have thu rest cf the stolen
property in your posession, and that we
will ere long be ustonislicd by some more
private revelations. Let every man keep n
lock upon his private correspondence, for
thu chivalry nnd their ngenls nre abroad !
