Those who witnessed tho exercises
at Moody's Hall on Friday evening
will admit that Dalles City is throng,
ed with youth of more than ordinary
mind and intelligence. The exercises
consisting of charades, proverbs, dec
lamations and orations, were very
creditablo to tbe scholars and display
ed much care and skill on the part of
the teachers. But we would suggest
that dialogues of Iove-maktag, elope
ments, &c, are not calculated to infuse
into tho minds of tbe young the' most
practical and useful ideas. The young
folks of this country certainly require
no incentive to that kind of thing.
Girls ofthirtoon or fourtoenyears will
loam soon enough when is the right
tuno to faint, and tho boys aro suffic
iently apt' in catching their graceful
forms without that being made a part
of tboir school education. We further
question the proprioty of selooting tho
most abusive political speeches for
declamation. Children should not bo
educated to bitterness and haired of
those who oppose them in political in.
Fire ALABM.-Thu alarm of fire
last evening was caused by the burn-
ng of one of the O. S. N. Co's build-
ings across, the creek. Tho firo origi
nated from sparks from a locomotive
which was In tho building. Fortu
nately thy fire was discovered beforo
any damago was done, and was spood
ily extinguished by Agont Dodgo and
a party of the employees. Jackson
Engine Company was promptly on tho
ground but thoir services not boing
required tbo "boys" housed thoir ma
chine. Wiiq Sacked Atlanta? Tho Richmond
papers have printed exciting accounts of tho
robbery and destruction of property in At
lanta by our troops; but the Augusta Cons
situtionul now confesses that tho sacking
was dono by Georgians themselves. It gives
this lively account of how. it was done : '
"Soon uftcr tho Yniikoes left, tho country
people flocked in by scores from 'all parts of
tho country, some coming over one hundred
miles. Kvcry description of vehicle, drawn
by mules, horses, stallions, jacks, jennies,
oxen, bullocks, etc., could "bo seen upon the
streets. Tho. sccno beggars description.
Iron, snlt, bacon, flour, sugar, coll'cc, hides,,
and everything else left by the Yankees were
unceremoniously deposited, in wagons and
carts and curried oil'. But our country cou
sins did not stop at that.. They entered tho
dwelling hous s of those absent nud gutted
them of nil their furniture. One lady, who
left her house for a few hours to- attend to
pressing business, wus astonished to find, on
her return, all of her furniture, uud wearing
apparel gone. Fully 150pianos were curried
oil' by the boosters, many of whom wero un
used to any 'concord of sweet sounds,' save
tlnw produced by a jewslmrp or a fiddle.
One of them, an illiterate backwoodsman,,
who resided in up humble but, ten by .twelve
was seen carrying out a magnificent piano in
a small cart drawn by a tw o year old bul
lock.' A venerable datno was observed try
ing to haul into lier cart a fine iiiuno by
Lnitutm of a riuie attached to its legs. When

Gov. Bbowk, of Georgia, denies indignant
ly, the statement recently made in the rebel
Congress that there was fifteen thousand ex
empts from military service in Georgia, lie
says that of that number of State- militia,
are in the service except 1,430 made up of
judges, sheriffs, tax collectors, 4c. r who are
absolutely necessary to the maintcuance of
the State Government, and a largo propor
tion of whom ore over fifty years of ago. He
says that the largest part of the militia, are
made up of boys between 16 and 17, and old
men. from 60 to 55. -Ho is quite angry that
J elf. Davis forbade the Georgia troops to
come home to. the defence of their native
State, and asks whether, while nearly fifty
regiments of Georgians are endeavoring to
defend Richmond, he ought to turn over also
his State officers, old men and boys. The
above facts, which aro embodied in a letter
from the Governor to Jlr. Staple, of Virginia,
are a sufficient refutation of the bonsts of
the Kichmoud Whig and other rebel journals,
thnt tho South Lms still a largo wbite force
not yet called into the field.
