M. EDIToR: On Saturday after
noon, 7th September, a party of us
left New York city for this place, en
route for poitits farther North. A
dense fog on tho river delayed our
arrival until near noon on Sunday
too late to mak'e connection %%ith the
'train going North. Shut up here the
remainder of the day, we determined
to. turn our detention to some purpose ;
so immediately after dinner, we went
in search of the Albaniy penitentiary,
where we knew some of our fell w.
citizens were confluted under foul as
well as fair pret xts. Arrivit.g at
the prison, we entered that portion
of these most, love and romantic
premises a ppopriated as a family
resideine for the Superintendent,
Gen. 1'1zLbury. We woe tuvt soeIi.

Sabbath mornit ing for the benefit of
the ininat es, and durinig the reht- of

and forthwith tic replied yi may bee

sulalteins to bring "qsiiro Brown"

we were privileged to talk with him
as we pleased. l'resently, Col. Brown

smilingly, and at the Fame time bow

not seen the Geneuii since his return

General ; '' but you know, Brown,
I can't see you all ill a dL.y. II)W

to us and sliiking us lheartily by the
hanid, recognizinig one or- two of the
piarty. lie had man 1y questions to

said they were most kindly treated
by the Superintendent, and heard
regularly from home. Their letters
alr t handed in every Suiday tmorning,

the State Executive Committee ofthe
Regular iepublican party to Presi.
dent Grant, representing in very fore
cible language the conduct of Majors
Merril and Brown, and District At,
torney Corbin, in taking part in local
elections, and asking the President to
issue an order at once commanding
that this interferenco on the part of
the military and civil officers of the
general government shall cease. In
the eveut of President Grant's refu
sal to comply with this reasonable and
proper request, it is not the purpose
of the Regulars, as we understand it,
to throw their strength in favor of
Greeley ; but simply to refuse to vote
for any electoral ticket at all, and
thereby give the State to Greeley by

Don't Depend on ''Father."
Stand up here, young man, and let
us talk to you-you have trusted
alone to the contents of "father's

Think you that "father'' has attained
to emninenice in his profesbioni, but by
unwearied industry ? or that he has
amnased a fortune honestly, without
energy or ativity? You should
know that the faculty requisite for
the acquiring of fame and for-tune, is
essential to, and inseparable from the
retaining of either of these. Sup.

lie allows you to idle away your time,
you'd better leave him, yes, run away,
sooner than be made an imbecile or a
