titled "?^rtrait 'of a Puseyite," to

An international scholastic eomp?ti

Public Instruction, recently took oc?
casion, while addressing the profes?

Emperor had determined that the
results of education .should have place
beside those, of art and industry
at thd^coming Universal Exhibi

of 18<">7," said'M. Dinny, "that your

Nat lonni Bank Note Rr.-kmpf to if.
The following plan of Nntioi?al
Bank note- redemption was presented}*
at. a meeting of the banks of New
York, Philadelphia and Boston, and'
embracing tho only system that has
been devised: j
1. The banks which are associated
in the clearing houses bf .the cities of
New York, Philadelphia and Boston,
shall receive on deposit at par the
bills of all the National Banks which
make provision for'the redemption of?
their bills at cither of thc above
named cities. .
2. Each of sard three Vi ties shall,
from time to time, notify the othei;
two (by tho clearing house or redeem-*
ing bank) of the names md location
of all the banks which redeem their,
bills in said city, and shall continue
to receive, for redemption the bills of
all such "banks until they have notified
such cities that they no longer re?
deem the bills'of any particular bank
designated iii such'' notice, . and 1 all
bills on hand, when said notice is
received, are to be redeemed.
3. The! redeeming bank or banks
in each of saiithree citied, shall send
to each of the other ?two cities the
bills of thev*thinks Xvhich provide %r
redemption in said cities respectively,
to be by them returned to the banks
which issued them
4. Not loss ?than forty days' notice
shall be given (which notice shall be
signed by the Committee of the As?
sociated Banks of the three cities) of
this pian of par redemption, and that
all bills shall be received at par on
deposit, in all the banks ox'.said three
cities, which arc redeemer! in either
of said cities, and that all bills
thus redeemed will be immediately
sent home for redemption according
'5. After the expiration of the time
allowed by the aforesaid notice, all
national currency which may, iii a:iy
manner, come into t^ie possession of
any bank in tut her city, for the re
deniption of which no provision shall
have been made, either in New York,
Philadelphia or Boston, shall be for?
warded to New York, and shall bo
sent home to its proper locality by
tho clearing or sorting house in New
I York, the expenses of each city, in
i sending to the other, to bo borne by
the city forwarding the bill?, and th3
expense in nrrjcl by New 'York tn
sending bills for non-redeeming banks
i to tiuar respective locality, to be
: charged by New York pro rula to the
banks o?' Philadelphia and Boston, m
far ns they may have sent such1 bills
to Mew York.

j Hon ger, a farmer in Tippecanoe
, Courty, indiana, has beea arraigned
: for giving cmuteyment to ?i negro in
violation of tue law. based upon?the
j 13th Arfci?lc'of the Constitution,
i which prohibits thc. emiglation o?
i negroes to thc Stale, after the 31st of
j October, 1851.
! The penalty IA .; fine of not less
than $10 ie,:- more thain ?&50. The
negro is also subject to prosecution,
bot in this case the action was brought
against the whiteman alone.
' The Boston P?s?says: thc General
Post OiBee hus abandoned tin- suit
, against the editor of the New York
I Tribune for defrauding the ri venue
. by sending a letter to the negroes of
I North Carolina without a postage
j stamp, upon the- ground thai thefet
! ter wasn't worth three cents.
We have recently, through the
kindness of a frieiul, beeii favorec?
-with the perusal of a most interest?
ing collection oi papers reciting toa
secret society ?in this city, whk'h was
org:inizcd for the laudable and praise?
worthy pnrpqsc of "ferreting out thc
antecedents of all persons that may
be pushed forward for ? place or
power." We Lave also the names of
all of "thc Ferrets," but as we are !
not awaiti of their having hunted j
down any of their, neighbors and ;
friends, wc do not deem the publica- '
tion of thc li*ri of members necessary j
at this time: j
The .following extract from thc j
minutes of a meeting of "the Fer- \
rots," held on the 15th day of April, j
18G5, will give some idea of the
character and designs of the secret ?
-"On motion of Mr.-, (we sup- ?
press the name, ) it was \
? " 'Resolved, That a committee be :
Appointed to ferret out all evil doers, I
fend prevent their further interference ?
with the administration of affairs, j
by giving to the powers tliat"rj0 all I
necessary information as to the ante- !
eedents of all persons . that may be i
pushed forward for that place ur
AnotSer resolution provides for tho
appointment of a committee of "fer- I
rets," and a publication of the names '
of said committee would produce
mach surprise and morrimenL At 1
this meeting, provision was also made ?
for ' .procuring thc haines of all per- !
sons who have been faithful to the
UnionJ and report theiirnam?s to the j
?roper authorities, that every facility I
may bc afforded of doing justice to j
From a hasty examination of the
list? of these "over-faithful Union i
men," Ave fear that :i$ alarming
sprinkling of secession "black sheep"
found their way into tho oompany of
the Union lambs, and shamefully de?
ceived the not over-vi gila nt "ferrets!"
The ventilation of the antecedents of
some of "the ferrets" would reveal
the fact that the descendants o"f the
Vicar of Bray greatly abound in this
city, and are A ery apt to turu up on j
tho winning side. As many of the \
aforesaid "ferrets," however, have !
been exceedingly kind to their seccs- ,:
pion friends, we hope the primary j
object of tho secret organization was ;
abandoned, aid that each "ferret," j
after getting a good slice of patron- j
age, became too fat ami lazy to hunt J
down any po.>r, half-starved seces- j
< sionis^. --/./(./'.<''</.(/ Times.
