Startling stories i f cruelty in the prison sou'h at Jtfterfonvllle were aloo related to the legislative oommUiee.- A dozen eonviota told tales of revolting treatment; some ettid that they had been chained in dungeons; others that they had been strung up by the thumbs; and gtill others that they bad been whipped almost to Inseoslbl'lty with the cat-o' nine-tails, A rlcld Inveatlgatlon will probably follow.

The aot was i » bold aa any commuted by tbe Jitmei battle, that there might be fulfillment of the golden promise for a perpetual peace. Tho cares and besctmcnts of the war were over, and at this meeting his heart was at peace with the whole world. He was cheerful and hopeful and was anxious that his happiness might be communicated to all of the people of the republic alike—those that had fought against as well as those who had fought for the flag. Within eight hours the assassin's bullet reached ,hc heart of the nation and the plans of ;he great president died r/ith him. Mr. Sumucr, who know him intimately and .oved him. declared that the purpose of absolute pardon for all was a subject very near to him, and one that would icrtainly ha.ve boon promptly carried out but for his assassination. Tho smilo that frequently played upou the face of the great emancipator was oue that came from a heart that was moved to appreciation of humor; >ut ho was never a jester and was as far removed from buffoonery as he was from disloyalty. Qe could tell a story well, and he did tell a number of them; but they were never his own. his originality not running in this direction. They were picked up by him in his frontier life, in his circuits as a lawyer and his campaign as a soldier; his prodigious memory bringing them up in most felicitous appropriateness, when ho would seek diversion ,fro'.a oppressing care, or desired to put off a persistent .placc-scckcr. Mr. Lincoln did possess humor of a very high order, but it was a humor that was touched of pathos, evoking a smile that at the same time reached tho heart, moving it with o sadness that was cot exactly pain. Mr. Lincoln's Spirit was brooded over by melancholy, born perhaps in large measure of his early struggles and environments. The high spirits that marked his conduct on the morning before the night of the assassination were followed by a sudden and uncontrollable cloud of gloom that settled about him so densely that Mrs. Lincoln, who was driving with him, observed the change and was filled with the most serious forebodings in consequence. So marked a trait was this ia Mr. Lincoln that many have thought he had some sort of premonition of the.terrible end that came to'him. When'Mr. Lincoln smiled and sent out to his bearers tho funny stories and light humor for which he was so famous, the' action was contagious. Those who heard him were charmed by his inimitable manner. As a fact, though, he was a reticent man, very modest and unaffected, being much given to solitude aud meditation. It always .demanded an effort for him to get outside of himself and mingle among others. When he did, there was a frankness in his speech, a seeming eon- : a striking face I bat :olu ut ion;; privation, thought, study. «.-lf-i-o:K;i!iv,! ".rid the highest intolkv'.ur.l ilcvi.'lo""!eut.

His i-ulion is like his handwriting, plain. I'-.'t olirj-arii and intelligible. Mr. Lincoln's memory has boon referred to. anil it may bo ikclaivd to have been u-s marked a faculty at, any other of his extraordinary brain. Every impression made upon his mind would seem to have been permanent; incidents, faces, names and dates were recalled after many years with marvelous circumstantiality of detail. This attribute was of greatest service to him in political life, and almost priceless while he was president, when the raul- j tiform duties of the ol'lce pressed upon j him. While in no sense neglecting the j civil duties of the oCice, which never | were more onerous than under his administration, he was compelled to follow tho details of military operations and to become acquainted with tho character and merit of those who held important trusts. This memory, never failed-him; once he met a man, he knew him forever afterward, and promises that were made or received were never forgotten. Men who knew him best were amazed at the intimate acquaintance he had with the writings of the great authors. Scarcely less remarkable were his powers of endurance. The endowment of strength was hereditary, and the thirteen years spent in the wilds of Indiana, supplemented with two subsequent years of arduous manual labor in Illinois, but added to tho measure of his physical powers. In the Boosier state, when a youth of nineteen, not only did his colossal stature (he was four inches above six feet in height), J)ut also his superior skill, strength, endurance and agility in all manly sports make him easily first among all his fellows, fie was victor in all running, wrestling, boxing and' other contests; while with the plow, or hoe. or ax, he was equally excellent and supreme. It may be mentioned that his fame as a rail splitter came of his labors after removing to Illinois, when ho and John Hanks cut and "mauled" a number of rails sufficient, to inclose his father's farm. His farm labors ended in the following year, 1831. when his father removed from Macon county. The rugged and rough life of his boyhood, youth and first dawu of manhood, with his inherited robust frame, endued Mm with excelling strength that enabled him to bear any burden, however great, [[is labors in the last four years of his life wcr«- unremitting and almost constant, yet he withstood them without abatement of vigor or loss of spirited energy, A man of strong moral convictions and koen sense of justice, he was acutely alive to his responsibility for personal acts, especially as their results might alTuct • others.

WILLIAM UOSSEB COEEE. EESTOEY OF ST. VALENTINE, The history of written almanacs dates back to the second century of the Christian era. The Alexandrian Greeks in the lime of Ptolemy, A. D. 100-100, used almanacs. Prior to the written almanacs of the Greeks there were calendars of primitive almanacs. The Roman fasti sacri were similar to modern almanacs. Knowledge of the calendar was at first confined to the priests, whom the people had to consult, not only about the dates of festivals, but also concerning the proper time for instituting various legal proceedings. About :!00 li. C. one Ccnius Klavius, the sccrcta'ry of Appius Claudius, learned the secret, cither by the stealthy use of the documents in his master's possession, or, according to Pliny, by repeatedly consulting the authorities and by collating the informa tiou he obtained. It was really pub lishing an almanac when, as L:vy re lates, he exhibited the fasti on whit tablets round the forum. From this time tablets containing the calendar the festivals, astronomical phenomena and sometimes historical notices seem to have been common. Research ha. brought to light numerous calendar., cut on stone. One was found at Pom peii, cut upon a square block of marble upon each side of which three months were registered in perpendicular col umns, each headed by the proper sign of the zodiac. "Whether the word 'almanac' be from al and manah, to count, or al and men, months, is not agreed; some authorities give it a Teutonic etymology, from the words al and mono, the.moon. Each of these conjectures .is plausible. Tables representing almanacs were used by the Arabs at an early date, mainly as astronomical guidcs,,and it is highly probable that both the thing and the name originated with them." tiuwor JAJtV TODT5 I.HsCOLX, THE PRESIDENTS WIFE. idencc and trust . that was as simple and guileless as that of a child. None who knew him well called Mr. Lincoln lomely. His face was plain, iinques- Many of our customs and holidays can be traced back hundreds of years ago. St. Valentine's day is no exception to this rule. Perhaps some of our young friends do not know that St. Valentine was a real personage. He was an Italian priest who suffered martyrdom at P.omc in 270. or at T.erni in 300, 'writes Florence Wilson in the Dome Journal, Historians differ as to the date. Legend amplifies, by dwelling on the virtues of his life and the manner of his death, and tells how he was brought before Emperor Claudius UL, who asked why be did not cultivate his friendship by honoring his gods. As Valentine pleaded the cause of the one true God earnestly, Calph-arnius, the priest, cried out that he was seducing the emperor, whereupon he was sent to Asterius to be judged. To him Valentine spoke of. Christ, the light of the world, and Asterins said: "If He Some funcy stories are told about the marriage, service. One of them relates how an old mn.n brought rather unwillingly to the altar could not be induced to repeat the responses. "My good man," at length exclaimed the clergyman, "I really cannot marry you unless you dj as you are told." But the man still remained silent. At this unexpected hitch the bride lost all patience with her future spouse and burst out with: "Go on^'you old toot 1 Say it after him. just the same as if you was mockin' him." The same difficulty occurred in another case. The clergyman. after explaining what was necessary and going- over the responses several tiroes without the smallest effect, stopped in dismay, whereupon the bridegroom encouraged him with: "Go ahead. "pass'n, go ahead! thon'rt doin' bravely." Upon another occasion it' was, strangely enough, the woman who could not be prevailed upon to speak. When the clergyman remonstrated with her, she indignantly re_plied: '-'-Your • father married me twice cess which attends the unwearied suit of one absorbing object. Universal influence and fascination still belong to' her, though in narrower range than or old, and the dancer of Tanjorc, who| concentrates the whole force of her genius upon the requirements of her' art, differs as much from the ordinary^ Nautch jju-1 of India as a mastcrpieco' of Raphael from the sign board which! swings before the rustic inn. Every; feature of the mobile face reflects the 1 passing sentiment of the moment in tho' drama delineated with consummate^ skill; the dark eyes flash with fury, fill with tcr.rs or melt with tenderness, ac-| cording to the exigencies of the vary>' ing situation, and in the nervous energy which throbs and palpitates through, every vein and fiber of the clastic and exquisitely proportioned frame, the lido of life scorns to glow through the veil of flesh iikc some mystic flame burning in a crystal lamp. The Nautch. girls form a d btinct caste and jcalous-j ly retain their immemorial rights and privileges. They exercise their own 1 laws and customs with the iudcpend-j ence of control gained by a wider erJ pericncc of life than that permitted td their Indian sisters.
