ui extract below is from the pen of Hon. Jeorgc S. Hillard : I coufess that increasing yoara bring with the ui an ncreasing respect for men who do not succoed iu life, as tliose words are commonly used. Heaven is seiid to be i place for those who have not succeeded on earth ; and it is surely ;rue celestial srraces do not best thrive and bloom in the hot blaze of worldly Drospority. III succeas sometimos ïom a superahupd&nco oí qualiües, in ;hemselves good - from a conscience too sensitivo, a taste too fastidious, a selfforgetfulness too romantic, a modesty too retiiing. I will not 20 so far as to say, with a living poet, that " the world knows nothing of its greatest men," but there aru fonns of grcatness, or at least excellence, whieh '' die and make no sign ; " there nru inartyrs who miss the palm but not the stake ; héroes without the laurel, aud conquerors without tbe triuiaph. L2LT When Bragg was iu Augusta. Georgia, Jeff. Davis telegraphed to hitn - according to the Chronich - " to hold the State at all hazards, t-top up the roads, destroy suppliep, and orush Sherman."

To whieh General Bragg proinptly replied: " Five proclamations and one bngndes. '" Thu Parisiuss are very uneasy about tho cholera.
