The following lines from Byron's Marino
Faliero aro suggestive ut the present time :
" They never fall who die
In a great cause ; the block may soak their core ;
Tbelr heads may soddon In the aun; their limbs
lie struog to city gates and castle walls
But still their spirits walk abroad. Though years
Elapse, and others share as dark a doom,
They but angment tho deep and sweeping thoughts
Which overpower all others, and conduct
The world at last to freedom."
Aiuiy Snois. The at my authorities oall for
froposali for furnishing 800,0uO pairs of shoes,
t is uuderatood that they will consider no pro
posals except for sewed shoes, made of oak
tanned leather, such being tho class of shoes
heretofore supplied and approved by the proper
authority. While tha number of shoes required
by the Government ,waj only enough to meet
tho wants of our small regular army, proposals
of this sort received little attention j but the
magnitude of tho present call has drawn to it
the notice of tho larger class of manufacturers,
and tha question aa to the sort of shoes to be
furnished has received a full discussion.
We are satisfied by the results of some pretty
close inquiries in well informed add disinter,
estcd quurters, that it is at least doubtful
whether the Government will not make a serious
inutako by adhering to its old pattern of sewed
hoes. It cnu probably obtain for $1. 25 per
pair a pegged shoo, as durable and every way
aa serviceable aa the sewed shoes for which it
p;a $2 or $2.20. At this time a saving of
$600,000 or mora In the supply of a single art!-1
elf U u matter of economy not to be passed
over. In fact, we findgood judges o'f both sorts
of work, who declare unhesitatingly that the
pegged shoes at the price named will be a bet
ter article and will last longer than the sewed
shoe. The largo manufactories In New England
now use steam power in pegging these heavy
shoes, and the work thu9 done is said not to be
surpassed for durability, while the same do-
E
reo 01 streugtfi in a sewed shoe is not to be
ad without a double solo, raising tho nrice far
auove wo fuuu vj wuieu urns are gcuerauycon
tined. It is also urged that the preference for
oak tanned leather raises the prico of the goods
called for, with no effect except to exclude
good cotind hemlock, by the introduction of
poorer leather, dressed so as to closely imitate
the oak tinned.
We apprehend that tho Department in this
matter has something to learn from the general
habits of our people. The use of pegged boots
and 'shoes is almost universal in this country.
Not one in ten of our soldiers, it is probable,
evr bought any cthprs for his own use ; and
among those classes of men, such as farmers,
miners, lumbermen, railroad builders and
others, whose need of durable and economical
ahoes for hard service is tho greatest and the
best guide to the wants of our troops, the use of
I
leggea shoes or boots is universal, ine feng
ibh army, bo beliovo, adhere to sewed shoes.
and so qo the liiiigliau people, ag mignt be (in
ferred from their characteristic reluctance to
change long standing habits. If proper inquiry
is made, however, lu this country, it will be
lbut.it that there is no point in which within the
prices named the pegged shoo is not quitq as
well adapted for military wear as the sewed.
The shoes called for by the Government are
all to be delivered within lour mouths. If
sewed Bhoes alone are called for, the number
of workmen is no limited that it is almost cor
tain that the Bhort time allowed will compel the
acceptance ot interior worir, at the samo time
materially raising tho range of prices. II
pegged shoes are called for, tho competition
will be open to all the leading manufacturers
in these State's, aud this will not only enable
the Government to call for superior work, but
will tend to call forth a lower average of bids.
We trust that the matter will be carefully and
fairly inquired into, and that this economy of
three quarters of a million will not ba lightly
thrown away, Boston Advertiser.
Jamaica Pbobocino Cottok. Tho British
Cotton Compauy have commenced operation,
with the very brightest proapeots of B'iccess.
The cotton shrubs planted in November last
are now yielding their first crop, and the agent
of tho Company reports highly favorably on a
point on which there wero many grave doubts,
namely, tbo command of labor. lie has not
only had willing rind continuous labor, but had
it cheap also ; therefore, Jamaica may now be
said to liao embarked fairly in tho enterprise
of supplying the British market with the raw
material, ot which she will surely be deprived
by the civil war in the United States.

CRIMINAL Error. A citizen of Buffalo went
to a drug etore recently to buy some Turkiih
rhubarb lor his child, but the attendant, in
mistake, gave him a package of arsenic. The
error was discovered, but the purchaser said ho
wood keep it for rats, nnd another package,
containing rhubarb, was given to him. Placing
both in his pocket, ho returned home, and ac
cidentally gnvo the child a dose of the arsenic,
which caused her death in a few hours. Two
other parties, to whom the supposed rhubarb
was given were made sick, but recovered.
