Beauregard. I. The most uniformly fortunate General of the late war was Beauregard. So marked was this circumstance, and so regularly did victory perch upon his standard, that Daniel, the trenchant and hardy critic of the Examiner, called him Beauregard Felix. Among the Romans that term signified happy, fortunate, favoured of the gods; and what is called good luck seemed to follow the Confederate leader to whom it was applied. Often he appeared to be outgeneralled, checkmated, and driven to the last ditch, but ever some fortunate circumstance intervened to change the whole situation. More than once the fortune of war seemed to go against him, but he always retrieved the day by some surprising movement. In the very beginning of his career, at the first great battle of Manassas, when his left was about to be driven to hopeless rout, his good genius sent thither Evans and Jackson, those stubborn obstacles, and the battle which was nearly lost terminated in a victory.

esus and his disciples, of Paul and the Apostles, had ere this been grievously corrupted and perverted. The subtleties of Greek speculation, the pomp and pride of imperial Rome, had already commenced drawing the Church insensibly further and further away from its divine source. A robed and mitered ecclesiasticism, treacherous to humanity and truckling to power, had usurped the place of that austere, intrepid spirit which openly rebuked the guilt of regal, voluptuous Herod, and made courtly Felix tremble. The prelates of the lately persecuted Church were the favored companions and counselors — too often, alas! the courtiers also — of Emperors and Caesars; but they seldom improved or risked their great opportunity to demand obedience, in all cases, to the dictates of the Golden Rule. The Church had become an estate above the people; and their just complaints of the oppressions and inhumanities of the powerful were not often breathed into its reluctant ears. White Slavery gradually

Epitaph. Humanitas maerent et maerebunt te, Sumner justitiae cultor eximius, justitia ob vitam purissima inter sordiores humanitas ut tibi nusquam aliena tu fine laborum immortalis initio gaudeas tali morte tale superstite nullo. Felix faustus fortunatus gloria resurgens ave. The following may be given as nearly a literal translation: Humanity and Justice mourn and will mourn thee, O Sumner, most renowned fosterer of justice! Justice on account on thy most pure life among the base; humanity in that she never was a stranger to thee. Thou rejoicest in the end of labors and the beginning of immortality. O happy, blessed and fortunate one, in such a death that none like thee bemains, rising to glory, hail!

is father, a mixed blood, like his neighbours, lived on a small farm called Los Felix, not far from Monterey. A poor school, kept by a drowsy priest, in Sleepy Holllero and fandango. The fandango was his favourite dance. The produce of Los Felix satisfied his father's wants; but the unhappy boy was fretting from a fever in me work — in future I would steal. A good Catholic, Vasquez set out for Los Felix, where his mother lived, to tell her of his purpose and invoke her blessing on ood. When he came out of jail, his cousin Leiva, and some other lads about Los Felix, preferring theft to labour, gathered at his heels and made him captain of thei by marriage of Sefiora Cantua, and a gossip of the whole Vasquez family at Los Felix. Love led her into sin and crime. Fidelity to wedded vows is not a virtue of at he intended to redeem his pledge. By staying at home, he might have put Los Felix into order; but the presence of his mistress in the neighbourhood unstrung his

ow to speak in fitting terms, in the brief space which is allotted to our editorial column, of the theoretical and practical infidelity of the present day. It certainly presents an entirely different phase from that which was witnessed in the days of Paine and Voltaire and their associates. Instead of the ribaldry, sensuality, and blasphemy of that day, it presents to us now seriousness, philanthropy, and religion. When Paul reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and a judgment to come, Felix trembled. When infidelity reasons of seriousness, philanthropy, and religion, the Felix of the day has a right to tremble. But how blind the writer must be! As if the Church of God was a place, and not a power! Why, when the news of this great experiment in the West Indies came to this country, as your preacher tells it, the infidels asked, Is the man temperate? Does he love his brother and not shed his blood? Does he respect his wife? Does he teach his children? and the Church asked
