Sherman entered the city nt tlie head of

In their Imste, neglected to destroy. Two

Four small steamers and ono gunboat were
captured, which, with the canuon, und a

complete the victory of Sherman's army.
NnsliTllle, 27tb. Richmond papers say

Once In August, wet and dreary, sal
thts writer, weak and weary, pondering o'e't
a memorandum tinnlc of Items used bifore
(book Of "scrawling hradnolcf, -rnlher
Items, tnklng days to gnthcr Ihent lu hot
and sullry weather, using up mttuti time
nnd leather) pandered we those Items o'er.
While wo cotin'd them, slowly rocking,
(through our mind queer Ideas flocking)
came a quick and nervous knocking
knocking at llic smicluni door. "Sure,
Hint must bo Jcnks we niulterid "Jenks
that's knocking nt our door Jculcs, that
Ah, woll do we remind us, In the walls
which lliu confined us, the "exchanges"
lay behind us, uud beforo us, nnd iirnund lit,
uil scattered o'er tbo floor. Thought wo.
"Jenks wants to borrow tome newspojiers
till tomorrow, nnd 'twll be relief from sor
row to get rid of Jenks, the bore, by open-'
ing wide the door." Rtlll tho visitor kept
knocking knocking loudrr lliuti bsfere.
And tbo tcattercd pilta of papers cut
tome tnlhtr curious capers, IkIuk lifted by
Ihu bretzrs coming through another door
aud wo wiilied (llio wlah was evil, for onu
lUcmcd always civil) that Jenks was at tho
d I, lo stny there evcrmoru ; Ihctc to fiitM
his level- Jenks, the titrYounalriiiglitg bore)
llruulug up our patience firmvr, then!
without another murriar, "Mr. Jenks," will
we, "ynur pardon, jour forgiveness we tin
pturo. Hut tlie fact Is wc were riudiug of
some curious proceeding, und thus It nus,
uiihudiug your loud knocking there btloro
." Here wc opened wide tlie door. Hut
pliancy, my plicilinks for ll wasn't Jeuks,
tbc bore Jenks, nameless evermore 1
Hut the form that stood before us, cans
ed a trembling to come o'er us, and mtm'ry
quickly bore us back again to days of yore;
days when "items" were in pkuty, und
where'er this writer went be picked up In
teresting Hems by the score. Titus the
form of our "duvll," In an utitudo uncivil ;
and lie thrust hi- head within the open
door, with "The foreman's out o' topyi sir
nnd anys ho wnuts somo moro!" Yes,
like Alexander, wonted "more 1"
Now, llil "local" hud already walked
about till nenrly dead he had sauntered
through the city till his fid were very tore
wuikid through the street railed Uauph
lu, uud tho by-ways running off into the
portions of the city both public and ob
scurcj nud rxumlutd store and ostler, and
had qwlioutd every "feller" whom we
met from door to door, If anything was
stirring any accident occurring not pub
llshed heretofore; ond had nut with no
iiicccss; he would rather kinder guess he
felt a little wlckid nt that ugly littlo bore,
with bis mcstiige from the foriman that he
wanted "something more."
"Now, It's time you were departing,
you tcump 1" cried wc, upstarting, "get
you buck Into the ofllcc ofllco where j 011
were before; or the wotds that you have
tpoken will get your bones all broken,"
(and we seized a cudgel oaken that was ly
ing on the floor) "take your bauds out of
your pocked, and leave tbo sanctum door;
tell.the furunaii there's no copy, you ugly
little bore." Quoth our devil, 's:ud him
And our devil, never sitting, still Is flit
ting back and forth upon tho landing just
outside the sanctum doer. Tears ndown
tils cheeks are slrenmlng strange light
In his eyes Is beaming nod his voice is
heard, still screaming, "Sir, the foreman
wants some more 1" At.d our soul pierced
with that screaming, Is uwakcucd from Its
dreaming, and has lost the peaceful fceliug
bad before; for the fancy will come aVr us,
that each reader's face before us, bears the
horrid words "trs wuut a littlt moitl"
Words, 011 their foreheads glaring, "your
local column needs s little more,"

soldier at Des Moines is the mother of a
negro child. As her husband was fighting

crowned his expectations, nnd gives him

With all its horror for "abolition lies,"
tbc Eiprat has swallowed a sell from this
source without hesitation, Ihe above
