Our Grave Yards Again. – We do not wish to be considered egotistical upon the subject of grave yards, but very much deplore the necessity of having to allude to the subject so often, and more especially with such little effect; but we do think that, inasmuch as there are no soldiers’ grave yard in our immediate borders to be cared for, we certainly ought to respect the bones and dust of our loved dead enough to keep their graves from extinction.  Propositions have been made, both by males and females, to fix our grave yards, to neither of which have we had the pleasure of publishing a response.  If a sense of pride and respect will not prompt us to this deed of humanity, we are at a loss to know what will.
