Mr. IVnnypni'kor was tho very mush nnd milk of human kindness. Indeed, it was feared that he would never row to manhood so piotw and precocious was lie. Sunday-school was his delight nnd Hie works of Mis Kdjjeworth and Mrs. Stowe his especial joy. Not so his bad brother, Tomtnv. lieinjr offered tho veracious history of "Little Frank" as Sunday reading the child of wrath remarked: "I don't want nuy more of thu pious little devils. Gimme suinpin Ut to read." As a cloud of mystery hangs over lommy's subsequent career, it is very probable that ho was either gored by a mad bull or drowned while fishing on the Sabbath. Tobias Ponnypackcr meandered harmlessly through life until lie reach ed tho age of -10. when a relative died suddenly and bequeathed him a small plantation in the south. Tobias was delighted. He had rend fo much in the works of his favorite authors of the virtues of thu faithful negro, of his shining qualities of sin cerity and gratitude, that lie longed to livo among such a simple and kindly people. lleforo many weeks lie was established in his domain. One day as lie walked along tho public road lie came to a cab in outside of which two women were fighting, while a mulatto gentleman was seated calmly on tho fence and quite a little crowd was assembled to watch the fray. "Oli, shocking! shocking!" cried good Mr. Pennypackcr, and lie tried to interpose between the combatants with such moral axioms as "birds in their little nests agree." and "dogs delight to bark and bite." lint tho words of peace weru lost in tho tumult tho only result boing that the good Tobias received sundry stray thumps from tho excited ladies. Seeing that Mr. Pennypackcr was a stranger, tho man on the fonco decend cd, and volunteered an explanation. "Dat air's my wife 'n' liig Lize," ho remarked, "bavin' some little sorter scrimmage." "And what is tho cause tlicroof? "Well, you see, boss, Big Lizo is a mighty funny sorter lady, 'n' she comes 'long past here, 'n' sasses Alfaretty jes' fer nothing 't all. Jos' now she begins to call Alfaretty a one-eyed rcgilator, V a bio cow, 'n sieli; 'a' Betsy she what lives neighbor to us slio says: Alfarotty, is you gwino to tako dat cow oil' er her?' An' with dat Alfaret ty she hops over do fence, 'a' doy sot to." "But this is very unchristian con duct." said Tobias, severely. "Ain't it, boss? now, ain't it! Hit's might unchristian in Lizo to bo a-callin' of ole cows 'n' one-eyed regilators, if Gawil has seed lit to allliek Alfaretty witli ono eye. Why, she could tako dat ono eye o' hoi'n, 'n go right up lo heaven dis minnit now, caa't she. boss?" "Well iicm! not exactly at present, mv good man," said tho conscientious I'eiinypaeker. "You ought to exhort your wifo to peace and sobriety." "I does, boss! dat I does! 1 extorts Iter nios' every time I thinks about it, for I knows dat blessed is do peace makers, 'cause doy shall infest de earth." 'Hero is an elevated-Christian char acter, blossoming, ono might say, in Hie diM, 'mused Mr. Pennypacker, and lie placed a coin in the hand of l'rinco Hupert Veal for this was thu name of his colored friend. After this Mr. Pennypacker often 6auutcrod past the liumblo cabin and engaged Prince Ituport in conversation, being more- and more delighted witli his storing worth. "Bo 'awnes!' " was tho prince's bat tle-cry "dais what I says. Bo 'awnes,' if yo lias to die fer it." "Now, would it not boa capital idea," thought Mr. Pennypackor, "to show the world that virtuo can llourish in lowly ground? I will write tho history of liis life and publish it in tho form of a tract." So Mr. Pennypacker began to ques tion Prince Hupert as to ids past career. For instance, ho would say: "Did you not feel, Rupert, tho evil effects of slavery upon your moral nature?" Slavery, is it? Oh, mighty bad! mighty bad, boss!" would tho ingonious Hupert reply. "And did you not think of your lov ing father aud mother far away in Vir ginia?" "Dat I did, boss! Thought a mighty heap 'bout 'em." Aud out of meager details of aliko nature, Mr. Pennypacker built up quito a touching little biography of this ele vated Christian character. It struck Mr. Pennypacker that ho could not do hotter than to ongago Al faretty as his cook and Prince Rupert as general factotum, so he built them a neat little cottage on Iih ground. Prince Rupert ovcrllowed with ox-pre-sions of gratitude. He was not onlv tin very paragon of honesty, but he was alo obliging and skillful in the raising of chickens. Tiieso fowls were the joy of Mr. Pennypacker's heart, and Ills eyes sparkled with pride as lie watched his plump "Plymouth Rocks." or, as Prince Rupert called them. "Plym ' tie Rock," sauntering about the yard, lie built them a pala tial dwelling and surrounded them with every comfort. Even a Christina can see when iio is being robbed, and Mr. Pennypacker soon found that Alfaretly's honesty was not unquestionable. Prince Hupert grieved over his wife's infirmities, and said: "1 wrestles in sperit witli her, boss, hut my extortions ain't no 'count." "Meanwliilo ho was so faithful, so grateful, so humble! Thoro seemed to Ikj not a llaw or speck on his snow white soul. One night Mr. Penny packer awoke from a sound sleep and fancied lie heard muflled squawks pro ceeding from the fowl-house. He leaped out of bed in those "cus tomary suits of solemn wliite" peculiar to the night season, and seizing a bound volume of The Congressional liccord it was the only deadly weapon lie kept about the place lie rushed to tho fowl house. Tho moon shown brightly, and by its light O horror! horror! ho saw tho grateful negro hastily shilling a Ply mouth Hock into a bag. Don't shoot, boss! it's nic," said tho valiant prince. "Prince Hupert Veal, do I behold" began Mr. Pennypackor, in a terriblo voieo, dropping, in his agitation The Congressional liccord on his own feot. "Well hem! yes, boss. I ain't do nyin' dat dis is me; but do fao' is i'vo been suspicionin' dis good wliilo back dat do a'r o' dis place don't 'gtoo with deso yer Ply in 'o do Hooks, so I jes' thought I'd take 'em oil' fer awiiile, tell day got strong agen, 'a' givo you a lit tle sorter s'prise." "I am surprised, very much surpris ed," said Mr. Pennypackcr. Let us draw a veil over tho painful scene. "Thoro is, indeed, a grateful nogro," said Mr. Pennypackor, after mature do liberation; "but ho exists only on tho virtuous but misguided page of Mrs Stowc. New Orleans Timcs-Dcmocrat, Confederate Coats Rare. A gray coat lias been hung in a caso at the National museum near t ho col lection of relics of the confederacy, says uhc II fishing ton hear. This coat was a confederate oilieer's coat, and though such garments were worn by thousands of men less than twcnty-iivo years ago tlicy aro regarded as rare curiosities, What became of all tho old gray and butternut suits after Appomattox is ono of the mystories which tlioso only can explain who have made a deop study of tho average lifu and the final destiny o a suit of clothes. This coat was present ed to thu museum by O. W. Barron, of Danville, Va., formerly captain of com pany II, 2-ltli regiment Virginia infantry, It is the coat of a captain of infantry, and is in a fair state of preservation. Capt. Barron, in a nolo which lie sent with t lie coat, said: "I bought this coat early in tho year 1803 in Petersburg, Va. for $1!10 in confederate curronoy, and kept tho coat constantly in tho army with mo in Pickett's division until that command was nearly all captured at Five Forks, just a short time before tho final surrender, and my colored servant. who took care of my clothes, thinking I was killed, burned tho remainder of my baggage and carried this coat homo to my father in Henry county, this state, where I got it on my return from prison at Johnson's island, I soldon used tho coat except on occasions of dress parado and roviows, or wlien sit ting on courts-martial." Tho cloth, which is gray, Is not of a very lino texture. It is a frock coat, with cuffs and military collar faced witli blue, Tho sleeves aro embroidered witli gold braid, There aro no shoulder-straps, but instead thrco bars on tho collar in dicato tho rank of tiio wearer. Tho buttons aro similar to United States but tons, except there is no lettering upon them. They have embossed upon them tho American spread eagle, with tho union shield upon its breast, and sur rounded by a galaxy of Btars.
