D)ANGERtS OF ELECTIONEEitING.
The Picayune rejoices it the possession
of a live Yankee. as a correspondent. who
having wandered as far south as Louisi.
aun. peddling notions, has settled down
mortu n% here in the Caddo country, or some
other uudiscovered region of that Statc,
and there concluded to run for Congress.
The rollowitng extract from a lener to the
'ditor of the Picayune. describing, one of
his electioneering tour<, is a specimen of
the luck he haI in the delighloful business,
--Wall, I put up %ith a firsirate gnoil
natured old feller. that I met with at a
billard rooim, and when we got to his hin-se
-twas just at dltisk. We weut in. and I
was intoduced to his %wife. a ine fat we)
maan, that looked as if she had got fal on
taMn. her face was so full of fun. Arter
a while. arter we'd talked 'hont ny little
gal, anda 'hnut the garden. nnd so on. in
co~me tihree or four children. latfin and
skipped along as merry as crickets. There
wartn't no candle lit, 1mut I cenuhl see they
was fine boakinig fellers, and I started fur
he ,adle bogs. ini w bich I had put a lot
oafagar candIy for the biahys as I went
along. '"Coom here," says I, ".yau littlo
ronag.--come along here' and tell me what
vitnr name ti." the oldest came upi to me,.
indl says he, "my name is Peter Smith.
".ind n hat's your name?" says!I to the
''lt Smith, Sir."
'The next said his name was BilISmiit,'
and the oiurth said his name was "Tum
my $mith."--Wall, I got 'ettn on my
knees, and kissed 'em over and over again,
and ginx'eta a lot of augar candy, and old
'lliss Smith was so tickled that she laffed
all the time. hMister Smith looked ott,
hut did'at say much. 'Why," says I,
*'3liss Smith, I would'nt take a good dIeal
for thenm four btoys if I had 'enm-theyr'o
so benutif'Jl and sprightly."
'-No." says she lallin, "I set a good deal
by 'em, l,ut we spile 'em tu mucht."
'"Oh no." says I, "they're rn'al well be
haved children; and, by grashus," vays I,
pretended to he started by a sudIden idea,
"what a strikin resemblance 'tween them
'.ioys andl their father!" aund I looked at 'aIr.
Smith --I never did see notbin equal in it."
says l--"your eyes mouth, forrad-a per
fect picter on yoo sir," says I, toppin the
oldest on the p ate. I that' Mliss Smith
would die laffin, at that;t her arms fell
down by her side, and head fell back, and
she shook the bull house laffin.
-'Du you think so. Curnel Joutes?" says
she, and she looked towards Mlister Smith,
and I tho'I she'd gone off in a 6it.
--Yes," says I, "I do ra'ally now."
"Ha, ha, haw-w-w !" Msay Mister
Smith, kinder half laffin, "you're tu hard
on me, Curnel, with your jokes,"
"I ant ajonkin at all, says I, "they're
handamim children, and they du look won
derfully like you.'
Just then a gal brought in a light, and
I'll be darn'd if the little brats did'ut turn
out to be mulatoes every one on 'em, and
their head as curly as the blackest niggers!
Mister and Miss Smiti: never had no
children, and they sort o' petted them lit
tIe niggers for playthings! I never felt so
streaked in my life as I did when I seed
how things stood. If I had'nt a kissed the
lit tle nasty things. I could a got over it, but
kissen on 'em showed Ihnt I was in earn
est. (though I was sort soapin on 'em as I
thought. all the time) and how to get out
of the scrape I did'nt know. Miss Smith
laIfed so when she seed how confused I
looked, that she most suffhcated. A little
while afterwards there was a bull fmtner
ly of relations arrived from the city. and
turned the mater off, but the next mnornim
I could see't Mister Smith didn': like the
remembrance on't at all. and I don't be

Distress among thr Farnrs of Ireland.
-An Anicricai editir in the Emerald Isle.
writes to the Philadelphia National Ga
zette as follows:
" For nany years pa.t, the sinndarl or
comfort among the farmers of Irelatid. has
been on the decline. When the old ka
ses expired, the landlords at onre raised
the rents up to the improved value of the
farm and the motle of cuhivation.
The talents and iidustry of the farmer
wvere tLis converted imnto capital far the
benefit of the haand owner, anid while the
labosr of the tenant was increa5.ed, his
meanis of subsistence were reduced until
pitatoes and milk have no.aw hecome his
only food ! Hie is now)% compelled to sell
all the luxuries and comforts he produces.
to meet the increased taxes anal the retits.
The landlord holdls the pulse of the tennt,
to watch the last drop of sweat he can
exact from him, without exhausting his
victim. Thes face of the country looks
beautiful, baut poverty and the police have
totally changed the character of the Irish
people. They exhibit a tameness and
air aof despair and resignation which, to
to tme is mnolancholy to conttemiplate."
Specie. ike water will .always find its

in the amount naturally requirced, it will be
filled by a natural current that will flow
from places where there exists a supe-ra
bundance. Of one thitig, however, every
one, we should think. must now lhe clear
ly satisfied ; anal that is, that specie w~ill
never circulate in company with deprec
iated bank paper. Two cerrenicies of
unequal value can never circulate togeth
er. T1hat whtich is the least valuable will
drive that which is the most so out of uise.
Thus it is that so long as the utotes of the
banks that do not redeem them on deanda
in specie, continues to circulare, the curre-n
ey in the places wvhere they sa' circiulame
will remain usounid, and specie will
cease to form a part of the currency.
