Nexf'door to Court-hoH^. Convention of Women in Germany- On the 17th of this month the women of Get- many held a conference at Stutgard, but not for the purpose of discussing the question of suffrage. The points they intended to discuss they have brought together iu the following pro gramme: 1. To find out the best ways and meaas to teach young mothers bow best to r^alate the phjpstcal education of their children. i. The establishment of small museums of lit erature, art and industry. These museams would not merely contain the best works of lit^ eratare and art especially adapted for women, but they would principally be a kind of schdok or academies. Places for meetings, lectures and t^hc like, in which topics, such as the education of children and matters of domestic interest should be treated by competent women and men, if these can be prevailed upon to assist in the movement. There would also be Sunday schools for woiuea and girls of all classes, savings banks, supply aeeociations, offices for those that wanted places, &c. 3. The comuicncenient of a reform in dress, chiefly directed against the vagaries of fashion, and the best ways and nieanfi to carry out this reform effectually. As a basis for this rcforta the following points have been accepted; a. That nothing be declared “old fashioned” which has once found itself useful and appropri ate and becoming. b. That nothing new be adopted uuless it has proved itself to bo both to the purpose and an swering tlie demands of good taste. c. That all garments and objects of toilet that are hurtful to health be put away. d. To in(i|aire whether a large saving might not be eflfeoted in things of dress, so tlmtthe ex penses might be made more appropriate to the iiicoine. 4. 'J'he transformatioa of benevolent female in stitutions into "self-bupporting aud earning (bmale institutions,” 8*^ A workingman was appealetl to by a Radical, who was trying to persuade him it was for his personal interests to vote with that party. Laying down his hammer, and looking his ad viser in the face, he remarked: ‘‘Under a Dem ocratic administration, I could buy a barrel of flour for three days’ work—and now it takes five! If you can show it is for my interests to do that, 1 am w'illing to vote with you.” The Radical gave up the job. WHO WILL BE ELECTED?

Depar’t. of the South, > Atlanta, Georgia, October 8, 1868. j Whereas, by an act of Congresaof the Unit^ States, approved March 2d, 18C5, it is made the duty of the military authority to preserve the peace at the pools at any election that Biay be held in any of the States; and Whereat, this duty has become the more imperative, from theexitit- ing political ezcitcment in the public mind, from the recent organization of civil government, and from the fact that Congress has by statute pro hibited the organization of military forces in the several States of this Department, itk therefore, ordered. L Tliat the sereral District commanders will, as sooa as practicable, on the rtH;eipt of this or der, distribute the troops under their commandg as follows: In the District of North CaruJina, One company 40th Infantry, to Fayetteville, One company 40th Infantry, to Charlotte. One company 40th Infantry, to Saiisboiy. One company 40th Infantry, to Greensboro’. One company 40th Infantry to Weldon. One company 40th Infantry, to Plymouth. Two companies 40th lufantry, to Goldsboro’. Two companies 40tli Infantry, to Raleigh. A dctachmcnt of two commissioned officers and forty men of Company ‘ R, ’ 5th Artillery, to Wilmington. II. Detachments, when necessary, mtiy be made to points in the vicinity of each poet; but in no case, nor on any pretext whatever, will detach ments be sent without a commissioned officer, who will be fully instructed by his post com mander. \ 11[. District commanders will itwtrttrt poet commanders iu their duties, and the relative po sition of the civil and military powers. They will furnisli them with copies of the circulars from these lieadquarters, of August 25th, and October 1st ult., (the latter which was forward ed September I6th, to District Commanders) in which the instructions of the War Department are set forth in l ull. They will impress on post commanders that they are to act iu aid and co operation, and in subordination to the civil au- tlujritics; that they are to exercise discretion and judgment, unbias^ by political or other preju dices; that their object should be exclusively to preserve the peace and uphold law and order, and they must be satisfied .such is the object of the civil oflicer calling on them for aid, that they must ill all cases where time will permit, apply for instruction to superior authority, but they must at all hazards preserve the pcace, and not be restrained by technical points, when, in their conscientious judgment under the rules above set forth, it is their duty to act. Post Com- mandei-s on being notified of the proposed hold ing of political meetings, may send an officer, and if necessary a detHchment, to watch the proceedings and see that tho peace is preserved. IX. To the people of the several States com- piising the Department, the Mtijor General etmi- manding appeals that tliey will co-operate with him and the civil autluirities in sustaining law and order, in pre.serving the peace and in avoid ing those seenea of riot and bloodshed, and the wanton destruction of proptnty and life, which has already, in some instances, been enacted ui the Department. He urges, abstinence from all iuflammatoiy and incendiary appeal to th^ pas sions; dueountenancing the keeping open ol litjuor shops on days of political meetings and of election; the abstaining i'rom carrying arms, and asserting the individual right of construing laws by force of arms. No just cause is ever advan ced by resort to violence. Let their be charity and forbearance among political opj)onents, what ever may be the result; let each gji-d eitizcn de termine that all who, under the law. have the right to the ballot shall exercise it undisturbed. If there are disputed pjints of law, let them be referred to the courts, and let not mobs or politi cal clubs, or other irrespon.sible bodies, construe and undertake to execute the law. This appeal is made in the hope that the Major Gen eral t'ommnndiug can rely on thcgO(jd senscand corrcct judgment of the uia.«s of the people, and he will not be comjielied to resort to the exercise of the power with which he is intrusted, and which he wJl most rcluctautly employ.

What agony was on my mother’s fcce when all that she said and suffered failed to more ae t She rose to go home, and I fbllowed at a di»> tane«. She spoke to me no more till she rcaohed her own door. “It is school-time, now/’ she said. “Oo, mr son, and once more let me beieech you to think upon what I have aaid." “I ahan’t ge to sohooL,” aaid I. She looked astonished at my boldnoM, but rt* plied firmly. “Cartaiiily you will, Alfred! I command jtJtt.” will not!” said I; “you can’t get me up stairs,” “One of the two things you must do, Alfired —either to go to school this minute, or I will lock you up in your room, and keep yon there until you promise implicit obedience to my wishca in the future.'’ ‘•1 dare you to do it,” said I; “you can’t get me up stairs.” ‘•Alfred. rhoosc now,” said my mother, who laid her baud upon my arm. She trembled violently, and wat> deadly pale. “If you touch inc, i will kick you,” said I, In u fearful rage, (iod knows I knew not what I said! “Will you go. Alfred ?” “No!” I replied, but I qutiiled beneath her eye. ‘-'rhen follow me,” said she, as she grasped my arm firmly I raised my foot—“O, my bob, hear me”—I raised my foot and kicked her— my fluiated mother ! How my fcead reels, as the torment of memory rushes over me! I kicked my mother—a feeble womaa—my mother! She staggered back a icw steps and leaned against tho wtdl. She did not look at me. I saw her heart boat against her breast. ‘•O, Ileaveuljr Father!" she cried, ‘‘forgive him—he knows not what he docs!” The gardener just then paaaed the door, and soeiog my ntother was pale a«d almost unable io suj)port herself, aho beckoned him to conic iu. “Take this boy up stairs and lock him in his own room,” said .she, and turned off from me. It was a loijk of agouy, mingled with intennesfc love—it was the last umitterable pang from a heart that was broken. In a munient 1 found myself a prisoner in my own room. I thought for a moment I would fling lujH.If from the open window, but I felt afraid to die. I was not penitent. At times mj heart was subdued, but my stubbornness rose lo an instant, and bade me not yield yet. The pale face of niy mother liiainted me. I flung myself ou my bed and fell asleep. Just at twilight I heard a footstep approach my door. It was my uiater. “Wh:it sIkiII I tell laother fw you?” she aaid. ••Nothing,” I replied. ‘ O. Allred, fur niy sake and for all our sakes, say that you arc sorry. liCt me tell mother yon are sorry. She longs to forgive you.” 1 would not answer. I heard her footsteps slowly retreating, and again I flung myself ou the bed to piuss :i wretched aud fearfkl aifjLt. Another foot«tep, slower aud feebler than nj sister’s, disturbed me. “Alfred, my son, shall I come in ?” she asked. I cannot tell what influence, operating at that moment, made me s^teak adverse to my feelinga. The gentle voicc of my uiother, tjiat thrilled through me, melted the ioe iroiH my heart, and I longed to throw mytielf upon her neck ; but I did not. My words gave tho lie to my heart, when I B lid I was not s(»rry. I heard her with* draw. I heard her groau. 1 longed to call her back. Ltd 1 did nut., 1 was awakened from an uneasy slumber by hearing my name called loudly, and tny sister stood by my bedside. “Get up, Alfred. Don't wait a minuta. Got up and come with me. lIotlH'T is dying!” I thought 1 was yet dreaming, but I got up mechanically and followed my sister. Ou the bed, pale as marble, hiy my mother. She bad not undressed. She hud throwa herself upon the bed to rest; and rising to go again to m«, she was seized with a palpitation of the heart, and borne to her room. I cannot foil you my ngony asl looked upon lier—my was tenfold more bitter from the thought that she never would know it. I believed myself to be her murderer. I fell on the bed beside her. I could not weep. ' Mjr heart burned within my bosom—my brain was on fire. My aistcr tlirew her arms around me and wept in silence. Suddenly we saw a moti^w of mother’s hand ; her eyes luielowid. She h«4 recttvered consciousncss, but not her speeck. She Iwked at me and moved her lijw. I CouM not uiiderytand her wonls. ‘Mother! mother!” I shrieked, “say only aay tjjat you will for;rive nio.” She could not say it with her Ups, but her hand pressed iiiine. She smiled npon me, and lift«d her thin white hands; she clasped my own within them, and cast her eyes-upward. 8h« tnov«d her lips in prayer, and thus sbe died. J remained still kneeling b‘*side that dear form till my gentle sister removed me. The joy of youtJi had left me forever.
