The Years, children of old father
Time—the maker and the finisher, the
creator ^ and destroyer — successively
spring into existence, run their brief
race, die, and are inurned with their
kindred dead in the grave of the mighty
Past. The Years die—Time lives, and
pursues his weary, but inevitable jour-
ney to eternity. Who shall attempt
to describe the giant events, the start-
ling scenes compassed in the little span
of life of the last four Years—-the throes
and convulsions of a nation in revolu-
tion, the terrible shock of the deadly
conflict and the mighty changes wrought
in consequence of battles lost and won ?
Who can foretell what will transpire in
the coming four years? None. But
all may learn some lesson of wisdom
from the history of the past, to guide
our course of aotion in the undeveloped,
uncertain future. Radical errors have
existed j let as in commencing life anew
as it were, correct or amend them. One
error, so universally practised as to have
almost become a governing principle
of society, is that wealth, not merit, has
been made the standard of fitness and
eligibility for position and distinction;
the magic wand to transform drivelling
idiots into men and women of eminent
ability and rare maidenly accomplish-
ments ; the " open sesame" to good so
ciety, and the infalible test of all
elegance and gentility. Modest, but
positive ability dwelliug among the
humbler classes of society, if not en-
tirely overlooked, has been too often!
set aside, in the " busy strife of life,"
to give place to' less merit, but more

Letter from Georgetown.
Georgetown, July 15, 1865.
Dear Intelligencer : Mr. Scrub be-
ing out of town, I haAe concluded to
write you this week. The latest item
of news at this writing, is the fact that
a large snake
A friend relate* the following adven-
ture to which he was an eye wituess, at
Brownsville: "As soon as Geo- Brow a,
the commander of the National forces,
took possession of the place, large num-
bers of enterprising speculators who
had emigrated to l&udeo, l^d were
broken up by the smash-up of the Con-
federacy, came to the GeMral, with
was caught last night.
We fancy we hear your readers all long and doleful tales of the pel ocution
exclaim at once " How ?" All in good ^e7 bad endured which caused them
time, my dear readers. I will here state 1 ^ ^ * " '
the facts : my hen's nests were continu-
ally being robbed by something, and, as I
conjectured, by asoake. Accordingly
I took an egg, broke the small end, in-
serted a fish-hook and rcplaoed it in
the nest. Next morning on going to
examine my hook, sure enough there
was his snakeship, hanging safely to it.
If you have anything in the way of news
that can beat this, I would be pleased
to hear it. We have been having
abundant rain all oyer the country.
Where the corn crops were not too far
advanced it will do infinite good. But
I fear in most cases the rain did not
come soon enough, though it will have
the effect of keeping the stalk green for
a much longer period, and enable the
farmer to save his fodder. The peo-
ple are busy now getting out their
wheat, and the yield, 1 believe, will
amount to an average. I hear great
oomplaint of the grass-hoppers destroy-
ing gardeus, in places almost entirely,
and damaging the corn to a considera-
ble extent. The prairies have since
the rain begun to doff their faded car-
pet jfor one of a brighter hue, and they
bid fair soon to look like early spring.
Yours truly, M113- SCRUB. .
Maximilian's Keturn to Kurope —
—For nearly two monjtbs we have, day
, after day assured our readers, stating
est" man of senser been torced to look j on the very best authority, that the
in pity or contempt, npon the supercil-1 Emperor Maximilian felt not only his

they, because their riches have depart-' standing as to the real stato of mat-
ed, accept the degrading proposition ' ters. We have now a confirmation of
that they are less respectable and con-
to emigrate." The General would hoar
their tales patiently, and would then
tell them "tnat his Government was un-
der no obligations to furnish Mexican
speculators transportation |o their
homes." One day, a rough looking chap
entered, and addressing the General,
said, "General Brown, I have been a
Confederate soldier, and have fought
you for the last four jeai and did my
best to overthrow the United States
Government, and now I am whipped,
aad want you to give me transport
tion to my home in Northern Texas.'1
The General arose from his seat, and
said, "give me your hand, my good fel-
low, you are the first man I havo met
to-day," and turning to bis Quarter-
master, ordered him to ñtrnish the man
transportation, and pay him ten dollars,
and oharge it to bis account. This is
a true fact.
What a Woman would do ik shk
Could.—Mrs. Caroline D. Hall writes
to the Boston Advertiser : "If 1 were
wealthy I would immediately establish
a school to teach poor rough women to
wash common elothes well, and to clcan
house without doing mischief, at fifty
cents a day and their lioard. At this
pricc, far better wages than these
women now earn, hundreds of me-
chanic's families in every large towu
would hire at least two days' work a
week. Then I would train a class of
girls to mend furniture, to repair
veneering, to put on bolts, locks, &c.,
to bang wiudows and st t glass. The

self-debasement they cannot. Are they
net now, morally and intellectu-
ally, the equals of themselves iu days
past, when fortune smiled and all wont
with them 41 merry as a marriage .bell ?
None dare deny it. Then let them, let
1 it from tho Times of yesterday. Our
cotcmporary says : "M, Eloin, the
special envoy of the Emperor Maxi-

Qualifications fob Matrimony.
The clergy of Iceland have the author-
ity conferred by law, to refuse to
marry a woman unless she car. read'
and write. The power is given upon
the sound principle, that a woman
must first be qualified ta inntruet her
offspring before aho be permitted to
marry. This principle, says au ex'

itcted on, would advance the wor
more rapidly in its carecr of improve-
ment than any other cause within the
range of possibility. Were all women

their capabilities, there wonld bo as
