COLORED AMERICANS UT RUSH IV.-Tho
following dispatch from Cassius M. Clay,
our Minister to Russia, - to Secretary
Seward, will be interesting to our read?
ers, and instructive to the white popula?
tion of the Southern States:
LEOATXON QF THE UNITED STATES,
ST. PETEBSBCRO, RUSSIA, Feb. V, 1K69.
SIR: Captain T. Morris Chester, lute
of the United States Volunteer Army,
being iu St. Petersburg, coming well
i recommended by distinguished citizens
of the United States, and being also well
educated, and of good address, I called
upon the Minister of Foreign Allai rs, and
told him that I would not apply in the
usual way by note to have Captain Ches?
ter, n colored American citizen, presented
to his Imperial Majesty, ns there was no
precedent, and I did not know how bis
I Imperial Majesty would bo disposed to
act, but I desired that ho would approach
bis Imperial Majesty iu un informal way,
and ascertain his wishes in this regard.
Tho Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs,
I Mr. Do West mann, acquiesced in the
proposal, and ina few days wrote mo that
thc Emperor had given orders to have
Captain Chester's nam'o put upon the
list for the first presentation. To-day,
being the occasion of a grand review of
the Imperial Guard, tho Ein put ur sent
aa invitation to Captain Chester to assist
in the review, which hu did, riding
around with bis Imperial Majesty's staff,
and taking lunch at tho winter palace
with tho staff' officers, and a portion of
the Imperial family, who accompanied
tho Emperor nt tho lunch.
I have made theso facts known to you,
as I regard the affair of some importance.
We bavo'fonr millions of colored citizens;
they nre with us, and of us, for good ns
evil. I think it is tho duly of all good
citizens to try and elevate tho African
race in America, and inspiro them with
all possible self-respect, and prepare them
for that ultimate influence which they
must sooner or later have upon tho po?
litical und economical interests of the
United States. Theso are the views
which bavo influenced my action in this
case, which, not partisan in their char?
acter, I should hope would be satisfacto?
ry to all patriotic Americans.
Having, however, discharged my duty,
ns I ever do, without regard to personal
considerations, I submit my action
frankly to tho judgment of thc Depart?
lam, my dear sir,
Your obedient servant,
C. M. CLAY.

Twenty or thirty years ago, when mis?
sionary enterpriso was in its infancy
among tho islands of the South Seas,
Captain Summers anchored his sloop of
war off one of tho Marquesas. The next
morning bo saw nu American flag float?
ing from the beach, union down. This
excited bim fearfully, and be sent off a
boat at oncoto inquire into tho matter.
Presently the boat returned, and brought
a gravo looking missionary. Tho cap?
tain's anxiety ran high.
"What's tho trouble out there?" bo
"Well, I um grieved to say, sir," re?
plied the missionary, "that tho natives

been interrupting our sacerdotal exer?
"Mon them starboard guns! Stand by,
now, to give 'em the whole battery!" ex?
claimed the captain."
Tho astonished missionary hastened to
protest against such rigorous measures,
and finally succeeded in making the old

been breaking up a prayer meeting.
"Oh! is that all?" said be; "I thought

RADICAL RASCALITY.-Referring t.? the
late judicial election in Memphis, the
"All sorts of rascalities wero practicod
to defeat au honest, fair election, but
tho crowded condition of our columns

It is enongh to know that Commissioner
Williams appointed all tho election offi?

sued thousands of blank certificates of
registration in violation of his oath of
office; that hundreds and thousands of
theso fradulent certificates were freely
hawked about tho streets for a price;
that men living in Mississippi and Ar?
kansas, and also in Brownsville, and Fay
otto County, were brought into tho city,
and voted in these certificates thus fraud?
ulently issued; and, finally, that Com?
missioner Williams, who refused to reg?
ister white men that were entitled to cer?
tificates, granted thom wholesalo to tho
Smith faction, and now professes to have
done all that he did, not in tho interest
of the people, whose servant ho is, but
"for the best interest of the Republican
party." A man guilty of thus polluting
the ballot-box ought to be visited with
the severest penalties of the law, and it
is to bo hoped that he will yet bo nando
to suffer it as others, no moro guilty, aro
now doing in tho State prison."

A clerk ia ono of the French offices of
police Was, some years ago, appointed to
superintend the legal proceedings insti?
tuted against a fortune-teller. The in?
quiry furnished him with some curious
information concerning the general prin?
ciples on which the art ii founded; he
discovered that upon the whole it was
merely a calculation of probabilities,
which, if mun II ged adret ly, might be?
come subceptible of successful applica?
tion; and ho thought it would be an ex?
cellent thing to turu conjuror himself.
He begau by dividing the workable mat?
ter-namely, public credulity-iuto its
two sexes, its four ages, into married
and unmarried, masters and servants,
clergy and laity, nobles aud commoners,
&c. He then set down tho general acci?
dents commou to nil classes, the special
accidents moro commou in each, and,
finally, the moro rure and individual ac?
cidents. Ho thus acquired a mass of
about <1,000 of tho accidents of human
life which aro constantly occurring-it
must bo confessed, a tolerably good
foundation to tell fortunes on.
While he was thus studying thu theory
of the art, he devoted himself to the
practico of a branch ilo less important;
ho observed physiognomy, fixed names
iu his recollection, introduced himself
into parties of every description, endea?
vored to divo into the secrets of families,
and assumed every possible disguise;
finally, when he found himself sufficient?
ly rich iu materials und powerful iu
means, ho opened a necromancy office.
His success was prodigious; his door wai
besieged by females, noblemen, trades
men, ecclesiastics, and even high pre
late?, eagerly thronged io consult him
and with the exception of somo few mis
chances, our conjuror had no causo tc
regret the resignation of his post in th?
Fortune-telling appears to bnvo beet
long a lucrative profession in Paris. ?
correspondent gives the following anec
dote and description of a person win
was most successful iu carrying on tin
trade in the French metropolis:
"A little more than sixty years since, :
fortune-teller in Paris was roused fron
his bed at tho dead of night by a lom
knocking at his door. On opening it
ho perceived standing before bim a mai
muffled up in au, ample cloak, with ?
largo hat slouched over his fuce.
'What do j-ou want?' said the fortune
teller, somewhat alarmed.
The stranger answered sternly, 'If yoi
are what you profess to be, you can tel
'I can tell nothiug without my cards,
replied thc other.
Tho stranger walked iu, and tho foi
tune-teller, having shuffled bis cards um
laid them out, after a pause, observed
with a tono of deference:
'I perceive I am in the presence of a
'Yon ure right,' said tho strauger; 'an
now tell me what it is I wish to know?'
Tho fortune-teller, ugniu consulting hi
'You wish to know whether a certai
lady will have a son or n daughter.'
'Hight again,' suid tho stranger.
After another pause, tho fortune-tellt
pronounced that tho lady would huve
On which the stranger replied, 'If tin
prove true, you shall receive fifty piec<
of gold; if false, a good cudgelliug.'
"A few weeks after, about the san]
hour and in the same manner, til
stranger re-appeared, and before heconl
speak, tho fortune-teller exclaimed:
'You fiud I was right.'
'I do,' said the strauger; 'and I ai
como to keep my promise. '
So saying, he produced a purse of fifi
louis, and departed."
Tho stranger's mode of proceedir
seems to have been designed to put tl
fortune-teller's skill to the severest tea
The circumstances of his coming alon
and at such au hour, makes it probab
he had not communicated his inteutic
to any one; while his carefulness in coi
coaling his person and ince, and his c
treme caution to afford no clue to tho di
covery of himself or his object by co
versation, were admirably calculated
render imposition impossible. The hi
tory of tho case is this. I heard it abo
thirty years since from a gentleman
Paris, who learned it from Volney, tl
celebrated traveler in the East. Volm
had it from tho fortune-teller bimse
who applied to him for some Syriac c
pressions. On being asked for wh
purpose he wanted them, ho confess>
his trade; and Volney, finding him a 1
markably shrewd person, inquired of hi
the story of his life.
"He said that when ho was young
had a groat turn for expense, ve
slender means, and an inveterate repu
nance to anything like drudgery. Aft
long puzzling himself to discover soi
modo of life by which he could un
certain profit with continual amusemei
ho determined to set up as a fortui
teller. He commenced by taking a lodgi
in the obscure quarter of the Murais, a
practicing in a small way in that neif
borhood, where the blunders of a bogi
ncr would not be of much consequen
At the same time he never failed to

spured no pains to make himself famil
with tho personal appearance and privi
history of every person of thc least ni
After two years of practice among I
small, and of study among the great,
thought himself qualified to begin bi
ness on a grand scale, and having,
bribery of a servant, procured a pro]
customer, he tried his art in his ii
sphere with great success. His fur
and of courso his gains, increased rap
ly, and it was when he was in his zen
that tho adventure above related h
pened. Ho explained it thns: WI
shnilling his cards, ho purposely let <
or three fall, and in rising from pick
them up, he contrived ' catch a st
cient glimpse of the si. .igor's com
nance to discover that he was no lei
person than the Duke of Orleans, afl
wards Phillippe Egalit?, and the fat
ot tho late King of the French, who waa
actually the child in question. He took
not the least notice of the discovery he
had made, but pretended to ascertain the
fact from the contemplation of his cards.
Having overcome this difficulty, his prac?
ticed acuteness mode the rest easy to
him. It was publicly known that the
Duchess was near ber confinement, and
ho had heard tho Duke was anxious to
have a son; ho, therefore, confidently
guessed tho objeot of his visit, and after
the manner of bis tribe, hazarded tho
prediction which ho thought would en?
sure him the most liberal pay. He did
not expect tho proposed alternative,
which obliged bim to be on his guard,
and ho had actually only just returned
from learning the news at the palace, and
was scarcely in bed, when the Duke ar?
rived, whoso faith must have beeu con?
firmed by tho fortune-teller's anticipa?
tion of bis intelligence."

Wu EUE TOYS ABE MADE.-Ab tho
cheapest class of toys aro of foreign
make. Penny toys como from Germany;
they have their birth iu tho bluck pino
forests of Tburingia. Tho Dryads and
Hama-dryads are not dead, but sleeping.
Whut rou rs of laughter spring from
thoso old gloomy pine woods! The great
toy capital is Sonueburg, wbero men,
women and children aro employed upon
their production. The costs of toys at
the place of manufacture is infinitesimal?
ly small. The wood-tho oidy material
of which they aro made-is nothing,
twopence-halfpenny a tree. The labor
is scarcely moro valuable. Toys, in these
old forests, aro mado on the most
modern principio of division of labor.
Any toy wo may take up bas gone
through bnlf a dozen bands. Hy this
menus great rapidity is attained in their
manufacture, and tho primo cost ut
home is less than a third of a penny.
Thc transit along mountain roads, and
by water carriage to Rotterdam, whence
they nre conveyed by steam to Euglnnd,
costs more than their actual manufac?
ture, but yet there is a profit left to the
veudor. These aro thc trno smashing
toys; but the moro expensive, highly
finished and elaborate ones still come
from Gormauy or the adjacent countries.
Groat numbers como from Grunhein

remburg maintains its old monopoly for
metal work, even in the matter of to3*s.
All the tenden soldiers in boxes are Bold

mitive character and form come from
Biberach, iu Wurtembnrg. The cui?

A CHINESE FUMERAI?.-When carrying
the body to tho grave, a solemn-looking
individual scatters little slips of paper
with aphorisms from Confucius written
on them; at the liutels of the door-ways
are strips of red paper, on which are
marked similar wise sayings. Upon the
grave is placed a roast fowl, some rice,
and a bottle of "Chinese wine," after
which the mourners depart, never look?
ing behind them. There is, howover,
another class of gentlemen who aro con?
cealed near at hand. No sooner do they
seo the last pigtail of the retiring mourn?
ers disappear from view than they make
a grand rush for the edibles mid drinka?
bles left for tho benefit of Joss, and they
very soon make short work of them,
Joss, no doubt, getting the credit. After
lying somo months in the grave, the
bones are dug up and carefully polished
with brushes, then tied up, and each
put in little bundles, which are nicely
lubelled and stored away in a small tin
coffin in the particular bong or commer?
cial house which is responsible for them.
When a sufficient number of these in?
teresting mementoes have accumulated,
a ship is chartered, and the collins de?
spatched with their contents back to
Canton, for, according to Mongol theo?
logians, it will go hard with bim in the
future world unless they do repose on
STREET SCENE.-The other day, pass?
ing ulong Military street, in front of thc
court-house, we saw a one-armed ex-Con?
federate soldier standing by bis wagon
and ter m of oxen. All at once the maim?
ed rebel, with the fire of battle not en?
tirely gone from bis eye, straightened
himself up, assumed the military stiffness
of old Gen. Buggies when culling bis
courier for a pipe of tobacco, whirled bis
long whip gradually in the air, aud
shouted in the honrse voice of com?
Promptly with the word, tho six steers
rose from their recumbent attitude,
shook their dusky flanks, and took the
position of the soldier.
Again the clarion voice
"Forward-march!" And the trained ,
animals moved off, not with a great deal
of timo in keeping step, 'tis trim but un?
derstanding the command perfectly.
Then, not satisfied with a paco "at

"No enemy in front!"
And the veterans quickened up like
tho Old Guard nt Waterloo preparing for
the headlong charge.-Home Journal.
The waiters' strike bas ended disas?
trously for the men. Tho hotel proprie?

Only about twenty of tho ?551? have been

back were compelled to renounco alle?

ployment at the watering places.
"What is the meaning of lost in
French?" said a cab-driver to a foreign
gentleman. ''Perdu." "Well, then,
your trunk is perdu," said the cab-driver.
Two YANKEES.-The following story is
told of a Yankee captain and his mate.
Whenever there was a plum pudding
made, by the captain's orders all the
plums were put into ono end of it, and
that placed next the captain, who, after
helping himself, passed it to the mate,
who never found any plums in any part
After this gume had bcon played for
8omo time, tho mat? prevailed on the
steward to place tho plum end next to
the mnto. The captain no sooner per?
ceived the alteration, than picking up
the dish and turning it around, as if to
examino thochiuu, ho said:.,,..
"This cost me two shillings iu Liver?
Ho then put it down, as if without do
sign, with tho plum end next to himself.
"Is it possible?" said tho mate, taking
up tho dish. "I shouldn't suppose it
was worth moro than a shilling."
And, us if in perfect inuocouce, ho put
it down the contrary way.
Tho captain looked at tho mate, tho
mato looked ut the captain, and both

tho captain, "you've found mo out; so

The City of Worms is one of thc most
interesting places in Germany connected
with tho history of Lutheranism. The
great Protestant Congress which assem?
bled there on Monday appears to have
been thoroughly imbued with the spirit
of Luther, nod took tho samo stand
against tho Popo (Pius IX) which tho
great heretic himself took ngaiust tho
Pope (Leo X) wheu. 348 years ago, he
appeared before tho Diet of Worms, and
in tho brilliant presnuco of the Emperor,
tho princes and nobles, the church dig?
nitaries, and a great concourso of specta?
tors. As tho apostle of the Reformation,
Luther at that timo boldly challenged
the authority of tho Pope. So now,
after tho lapse of centuries, his followers
met to renew tho challeugo, and uphold
the spiritual independence which Luther
then asserted at tho peril of bis life. The
magnificent, monument of Luther which
stands in tho City of Worms is a less
worthy commemoration of his character
than the Congress which has just been
held to re-assert his principles.
PASHUNCE OF Jon.-Everybody iz in

At a late military dinner, one of the

It is related of a certain clergyman,
noted for his long sermous, with many

at length a resting-place in his discourse,
when, pausing to take breath, and asking
the question, "And what shall I say
