To Mr. Arlcmtis Ward.
DEAR SIR: My wife wa? danger?

She was so weak that she could not
lift a tea-spoon to lier mouth. But,
in a fortunate moment, she com?

She got better at once. She gained
strength so rapidly that she lifted
thc cottage piano quite a distance
from tlie floor, and thou tipped it.

whom she had some little trouble.
We like your lectures very much.
Please send me a barrel of them. If
you should require any more recom?

each, the price ? charge for this one,
and I trust you may be ever happy.
I am, sir, Tours truly, and is my wife.
AN ENGLISH OPINION OF orr. MEX?
ICAN RELATIONS.-The London Times,
by last advices, had no doubt that
Maximilian had abdicated, and
looked forward to the intervention of
the Washington Government as the
next ste p. "That inters jtiou will
bc popular instead of unpopular, and
Cheap instead of costly. The Ameri?
cans, will enter the country as friends,
they will hunt its enemies down, and
thus render civilization possible, and
transform that community into a
civilized state. They will have the
advantage, too. They will seem less
liko invaders .than their ]Aredecessors.
This will preserve the name and
form of the Mexican Republic, and
will probably leave the native Mexi?
cans as its ostensible rulers."
TROUBLE ABOUT CONFISCATED PRO?
PERTY IN FLORIDA.-A despatch from
New Orleans states that official reports
from Florida indicate considerable ill
feeling between the citizens there,
arising from the possession of confis?
cated property, by parties who pur?
chased real estate at Confederate con -
fiscatiou sales refusing to relinquish
their claims to their refugee ?tyners.
Tho courts in some Counties sustained
the holders of such property, but
issued writs of ejectment against per?
sons holding property confiscated and
sold by the United States Govern?
ment. General Foster, commanding
the State, thinks that the troops can
not?be safely removed. "
Wno WILL PAY THEIR DEBTS,?
If the State Governments at the South
are abrogated; and the States are
converted into Territories, governed
by Congress, who will pay their pre?
sent State debts ? Some of them
owe, as States, from forty to fifty
millions; their obligations aro held in
Europe, and throughout the North
and East in this country. If the
States arc abolished by Congress, thc
debtor disappears by the act of Con?
gress, and the creditor is left minus
State bonds. This is Sumner's wis?
dom; Stevens' statesmanship; Bout
well's equity and Butler's sharpness.
ANOTHER SIGN.-The New York
"The French Government has
recently bought 10,000 barrels of
flour, and 1.500 barrels of beef and
pork in this market for its troops in
Mexico, with considerable grain to
feed the horses in use by them, and
in such need are these supplies that
steamers have been chartered to take
them to Vera Cruz."
Several buildings, including whole?
sale and retail business stores, in
