st day of his life — and all that sort thing.
Where he is just now we don't know, and, to tell the truth, if he is on a speech-making expedition, don't care.
Charitable people will excuse him by saying he visited home to see his family.
It happens that his family had been living with him all summer at Fortress Monroe, in a nice yellow brick house, surrounded by pleasant trees.--Stringham, too, had a reception, and made a speech at Brooklyn.
Could not anybody less than a Commodore have served as an escort for the high-toned chivalry who were made prisoners at Hatteras?
We are glad to see that Stringham is again as far South as Fortress Monroe.
It is possible that he may reach Hatteras in time to prevent the rebels from retaking the position and mounting their ten-inch Columbiad.
The panic along the Southern coast is quieted by the assurance, which the Southern press is enabled to give, that there is no danger, as "Bombasts Butler" and "Old Stringham" are "off on a big spree."
