Lou's iNfallibiliiy. H still lives, at thu ago of 7, on a Georgia farm. He is said to 1ms engaged on a hl-toty of his campaigns. Ambrose P. Hilt uuccnded Jackson.

Much of his snouess must have been deserved and well-catned, the natural result result of energy and sagseity, but sfinic of it, like Jackson's, was apfineotly garnered tlmmgh tho couspieuotts iii:4aciiy of his opponents. We observe that as ttw I'.-diji-.tl cavalry gained in ex jNM-ietiee, St tiait's glry began to wane. He gained no laurel of Phtasonton at llrandv Ktetion and Gettysburg. After Shetidnn's advent advent there was a complete change, and in the cavalry battle of Yellow Tavern, May 10. ItHM, the rebel cavalry was ONlfoegbt and whipped, and Gen. Stuart lost his life. The rebel Ieudor wa undeniably worsted iu the strategy of that short campaign, as well a' out general ed on th field of battle. When Sherman angrily said to Meade, " I oan go out aud whip Stuart, if you'll lot mo alone," ShcodaM evidently knew what he was about. Grant coolly remarked to Meade, who was out of humor: "Uettor lot him doit, hadn't we?" AKI Yl:M.OW TAVJCttX WAS THK KHtfUl.T. Jabal A.

TYmea.J Joo Mulhntton was in tho city yesterday. Mr. Mulhattou possosso? the nnjuaintaiico of cvory man, woman, aud child in tho city, nnd his famo as a renowned liar is vrorld-wido and proverbial. Tho gontlomau is 11 ficientltlc liar aud lies only for the pleasure thoro is in it. His latest is somewhat after this unique stylo: "Last week down in Misiippi, whore tho thermometer rogiHtered 7." above zero, Col. Stoddard's force of negroes wore busily engaged bousing a crop of pop-corn. On Saturday at noon tho Ust car was houiod aud the negroes wero given the rest of the day as a holiday. They loft the plantation and wont lo the small railway station near by to see tho evening tiain arrive. Whilu abaeut the crib in which tho year's imp-corn was stored caught fire and the heat from the burning timber caused every grain to 'pop.' Soon tho whoto plantation was covered with whito 'kernels,' aud a mule, 2S years of age, which was housed in an old barn near by, saw the ground covered with the whilu caps of the pop-corn, and while the thermometer thermometer registered 75 above z-ro. froz to death, because he imagined tho while grains of corn were snow flakes." Sherman and th Drummer Uor. r.Tokrafjc. Gen. Sherman never forgot that little drnm-mer drnm-mer boy who came to him iu tho hot fightat thu tear of Vicksburg, and when it came in his power ho had the youngster appointed to tho Naval Academy at Annapolis. Thu troops wero in the heat of tho engagement, whou Shermau hoard a shrill, childish voice calling ont to him that one of the rogi mania was out of ammunition, ammunition, and tkat the men would have to abandon their poniDon unless ho sent to their relief. Ho looked down, and there by the side of his horse was a mite of a boy, with the blood running running from a wound in his leg. " All right, my boy." said tho Genersl, " I'll fnd them all they need, but a3 you seem to bo badly hurt, you had better go and find a Surgeon Surgeon and lot him fir you up." The boy salated and started to the roar, while Sherman prepare! to give tho required order for the needed ammunition. Rut he on oe more heard tho piping voice shouting back at him: "General, caliber fifty-eight; caliber fifty-eight."
