SIR-Allow me to pronounce' myself as

I will state to-the public my principles:
1. I am in favor of taking the tax off of
the cotton. 2. 1 am in favor to compu
terate the war debt. 3. I am in favor
of free trade with all nations. 4. I am
in favor of freeing all the colored people
in Cuba. 5. I am in favor of the sub
jection of Mexico. 6. I am in favor of
free trade and sailors' rights. 7. I am
in favor of every man .having a planta
tion when he works for it. I hope my
conumuerous friends will support me in
this undertaking, and clear this country
of the troubles it is now in. Your Friend,

. A Luxrsous IDEA.-One of the corres
pondents of the Cincinnati Commercial
is filled with an original idea so brilliant
that the editor makes haste to make
room for the communication in which he
embodies his discovery as follows ;
Ory (ht.Nors,) August 14, 1867T.
To THEs EDITORs OF THE COMMERCIAL :
--Herewith I enclose you a plan where
by Edwin M. Stanton may become Presi
dent of the United States. Such a bit of
justice would thrill the heart of every
loyal man throughout the land. Let
Cameron resign ; let the Governor of
Pennsylvaniau appoint Stanton to fill the
vacancy. Wade can resign his position
in the Senate. Elect Stanton- presiding
officer. Tbe -Rouse can present im
peachment papers against Johnson. Let
the Senate oust him-Stanton becomes
President, Cameron can be re-appointed,
and Wade re-elected as presiding officer
of the Senate. Justice is satisfied-the
A mean swindler in Philadelphia ad
vertised for peach pickers to go to Dela
ware City. About fifty poor Germans
responded, and met him, according to
direction, at the de pot, where he collec
ted $1.25 from each to pay their passage.
He tben decamped, but his poor victims
did not discover the swindle until they
had ridden several miles and were called
upon by the conductor to pay their fares,
and were obliged to gtet a the first
Al1 Kinds of Paragrapha.
Fifty Frenchmen have- sanctioned an
enterprise, the discovery of the North
Pole. M. Gustavo Lambert, formerly a
pupil at the Polytechnic, now in the
hydrographic department of the govern
ment, proposes to reach the open Polar
Sea and the Pole itself by'a route never
before tried. The project has been well
received, and a subscription has been
opened. As soon as - 600,000f. are ob
tained the enterprise will be carried out.
Among the fifty names appended to the
announcement are those of Elie de Beau
mont, Chasseloup Laubat, Michel Cheval
Jier, Drouyn de Lhuys, Guizot, Emile de
Girardin, De Quatrefages, Leonce de
Lavergne, Leon Say, Alfred Maury and
Milne Edwards. The Emperor Napoleon
has given his full approval to the project.
The people of Java. have rather a live
fy Aime of it.- According to the latest of
-fincial statistics contained in the Tidjs
ohrift vor Nederlandsch Java, the tiger
has, in one sirgle year, consumed exact
ly'one hundred and forty eight human
beings, and in another -year one hundred
and thirty-one.' The crocodiles cleared
an average of fifty people a year, while
serpents accounted for between twenty
two and forty three. But the Dutch
seem to accept their fate with character
istic equanimitj. The Governor Gene
ral, a tong while ago, offered as a prize
for every tiger that, was killed the mu
ni6centsem of twenty two gilders ($10).
His subjects .apparently prefer being
eaten by the tiger.

WAsHINGTON, September 1.--The re
cent order of Gen. Grant, that District'
Commanders will make no appointments
to civil ofiice of persons who have been
removed by theipselves or their prede
cessors, does not. make a new 'issue be
tween the President and Gen:- Grant.
There is good authority for asserting
that the rumors of a difficulty having
arisen on this subject are groundless.
The Reconstruction Act -vests in the
General Commanding thie same powers
that are conferred upon District Com
manders in regard to removals and ap
pointments, and therdfore the order of
Grant is merely considered as a notice,
in advance, that he would disapprove of
sneh appointments as he inditcates.

weighed three and a half pounds. Near
the stem, it was twelve inches in cir

She hung the c t the window
"If he goes by," she said,
'He will hear my robin singing,
And when he lifts his head
I shall be sitting here to sew,
And he will bow to me, I know."
The robin sang a love sweetson, -
The young man raised his hed
The maiden tamed away and blushed
"Ian a fool," she said,
And went on embroidering in silk
A pink eyed rabbit, white as milk.
The young man loitered slowly, -
By the house three times that day;
She took her bird from the window,
"He need not look this way."
She sat at her piano long.
And sigbed and played a death-sad song.
But when the day was done she said, -
"I wish that he would come!
Remember, Mary, If he calls
To-night, I'm not at home."
So when he rang, she went-the elff
She went and let him in herself.
They sang full long together,
Their love sweet,son death-ad;
The robin woke from aslumber,
And rang out,'clear and glad,
"Now go,- she coolly said, "'tis latey"
And follwedg.s lock thegate..
He took the rosebud from l^&,
While "you.shall not," she.sid;
He elned her hand within his own,
And while her tongue forbade,- ~
Hes will was darkened in eclipse
Of binding love upon his lips.
