Under the ice the waters run; -
Under the ice our spirits lie;
The genial glow of the summer sun
Shall loosen their fetters by and by.
Moan and groan in thy prison cold,
' ' River of life-driver of love; '' -r
! The winter is growing worn and old,
- The frost is leaving the melting mold,
And the sun shines bright above., -,
Under the ice, under the snow, . J. ;;
Our lives are bound in a crystal ring; :
l-By-and by will the south "winds "blow,
And the roses bloom on the banks of spring.
Moan and groan in thy fetters strong,
River of life river of love.
The nights grow short, the days grow long,
Weaker and weaker the bonds of wrong,
And the sun shines bright above.
Under the ice our pouls are hid;
Under the ice our good deeds grow;
Men but credit (lis wrong we did,
Never the. motives that lay below.
Moan and groan in thy prison cold,
llivci' of life river of love;
The winter of life is growing old,
The frost, is leaving the melting mold,
And the sun shines warm above. .
Under the ice we hide our wrong
Under the ice that hus chilled us through:
Oh! that the friends that have known us long
Dare doubt that we are good and true!
Moan and groan in thy prison cold,
River of life river of love;
Winter is growing warm and old,
Roses stir in the melting mold; .
' We shall be known above. . ;

"All through the night ,.
The subtle frost hath plied its mystic art,
And in the day the golden sun hath wrought
True wonders: and the wings of morn and even
Have touched with magic breath the changing
AntHtow, as wanders the dilating eye - : '
Athwart the varied landscape circling far
What gorgeousness, what blazonry, what pomp
Of colors, burst upon the ravished sight!"
What a change has come over the face
of Nature! The waving forests, so lately
robed in deepest green, have assumed
the gorgeous coloring ot October

It would seem that they were entering
upon a new life, instead of being pushed
off the stage to make way for a new gen
eration. The year has culminated in field and
forest, and the farmer is gathering in
his harvests. The first frosts have come,
and you sec the small hoar crystals glit
tering in the morning sun upon the grass
and along the fences. " The pumpkin and
squash vines are the first to feel its
power, and the broad, leaves droop and
turn black, as tho sun conies up, leaving
tho yellow globes 'and crook-necks all
exposed. The farmer hardly knew how
rich he was until the f'rosjt cleared away
the luxuriant mass of foliage. - Now the
potato-patches and the edges of the corn
fields and the gardens are yellow with
the raw material of pumpkin' pies, and
Thanksgiving. : The orchards feel the
chill breath ot the frost, and you bear
the apples dropping under all the trees,
as it' seeking warmer quarters in the
thick grass deneath the branches. The
apples are abundant in almost all parts
ot the country; and the poorest families
can lay in their winter stores of. Green
ings, -P.ippins, and , Spitzenbergs. An
orchard loaded with fruit, and ripening
in the October sun, is one. of the finest
sights in the country. Here is a tree
blushing in every bough with the crim
son fruit,- and there they hang in long
yejlow bunches, waiting for the basket.
The winter fruits are not harmed by the
early frosts, and they will adhere to the
branches until it is time to remove them
by hand. '- The finishing touches to the
flavor of-. the 'l:ii e fruits are given in the
last few days of ihe season. - If plucked
too early, they -'shrivel; .uid'doi'not ripen
well- in the cellar or fruit room. This is
the reason why same, condemn . certain
very fine wiufr pburs. I a some cases,
the season is tb 'short for them to reach
maturity, ia others,, tl'.oy arc removed
from the. tree full twu m L c'. s bei'ore the
close of the season. luUat of the winter
varieties of pears and apples , are fur
nished with a thick foliage which ad
heres longer .than on the summer varie
ties, to afford protection to the fruit.
We have sometimes left the Glout Mor
ceau as Tate as the middle of November,
with' the - best results. ' The -picking,
storing, and ripening of winter fruit is
an art that cannot be learned in a single
season. - ; ; , .:
. .With the harvest moon, come apple
pearings, and huskings, words -full of
meaning to the old men, if not to the
boys. We see now the ample farmer's
kitchen, and the bushel baskets heaped
with apples, and the merry group of lads,
and lassies, seated for their work. . There
were at least a dozen of them gathered
from the neighbors to lend a helping
hand in preparing "the apple sass." ' It
is now called apple butter, and, by some
very proper people, "sauce." - A barrel,
at least, was to be prepared from the
green, or, rather, fresh-pared sweet ap
ples and large stores of dried apples
were to be laid up for winter use; - The
head of the household, as was meet, used
the paring machine with three-tined fork
and knife that cut the skill as thin as a
wafer. The pared apples fell with won
derful rap'idity into a large tub', and were
thence ; distributed ' among the young
folks, to bo halved, quartered, cored and
strung upon twino about two - yards in
length, for drying. The strings of ap
ples, as thev were finished, were put upon
hooks in the ceiling. Or upon poles ready
removed in the morning to the
sunny side o' the house,. where i hey jell'

of wasps and flies. With a huge pan ol
apples between a young couple, the work
went on merrily, if not rapidly; jokes
flew back and forth, sometimes empha
sized with apple seeds, and sometimes
with something softer, liustic awkward
ness in company was happily overcome,
for there was a place for the hands, and
the hands had something to do. The
tongues were unloosed, first about the
work and the company, and then about
something that might have been very
hard work, under other circumstances.
Wholes in the pan were halved, and dis
consolate halves, out of it, were eventu
ally made whole. Work and wooing
went together in those good old times,
when the kitchen was better known than
the parlor, and the presence of the "old
"folks at home" did not spoil the freedom
and frolics of their children.
The last apple being pared, and the
last festoon hung up duly in its place,
there was a resqxt to fortune telling.:
The rind of the apple being passed three
times round the head and dropped, inva
riably gave the first letter in the name of
the successful lover. As the coil of rind
almost always made an S, or something
that squinted that way, it was easy to
worm the secret out of the most bashful
swain, and point out to him his intended
Sarah or Sophia. These prophecies ; of
the farmer's fireside sometimes turned
outalarmingly correctand were followed
by wedding occasions and new homes.
Ihe huskings in the long evenings of
the harvest moon were larger gatherings.
and not usually cheered by the presence
ot tne tair until supper time. T y
"From many a brown old farm house, . ;
And hamlet without name,
Their milking and their home tasks done,
-: The merry huskers came. -
Swung o'er the heaped-up harvest
From pitchforks in the mow,
Shone dimly down the lanterns
On the pleasant scene below; ' . '
The growing pile of husks behind,
..She golden ears before,
And laughing eyes, and busy hands, ;
,- And brown cheeks glimmering o'er.
Half hidden in a quiet nook, ''
; Serene of look and heart,
Talking their old times over,
' The old men sat apart,- ' '
:iWhile up and down the unhusked pile,
Or nestling in its shade,
At ljidc-and-seek, with-laugh and shout,
t.: The happy children played." : .
In the warm frostlesa evenings, such
as we often have in this month, the scene
was not laid upon the barn-floor, but un
der the open sky, the full moon giving
plenty of light to the huskers. When
the work was done, the company ad
journed to the house, and tea, coffee,

dress and dazzling jewelry, which are too
often the regalia of idleness and vice
The "apple-paring." and the "husking
bee," are pleasant October memories with
us. With a little remodeling to adapt
them to the changing times, they ought
to be perpetuated among the cherished
institutions of farm life. With our
bountiful apple crop, and almost unpre
cedented yield of corn, in all the North
and East, we shall have ample material,
and joyful occasion "to show". up these
institutions. ' 1

Honor, among Kings ought to be as

counts of a little bit of sharp : practice
which the Ex-King of Naples lately at

peror of Austria.'. '.. .' ' ,' ;"'"'
Francis Joseph; himself a weak and
sometimes wicked sovereign, had so much
sympathy for Francis II., of Naples,
that, when it became pretty clear that
the Neapolitan tyrant would have to fly,
the Austrian fleet were ordered up from
the Gulf of Venice to the shore of the
Kingdom of Naples, in order, if heeds
be, to receive the fugitive King and his
family, and safely convey ; them to an
asylum in the Austrian dominions.
"".Of course, the King ' of Naples' was
greatly relieved and obliged by the in
timatiori that if as1 the event proved -he
could 'not trust his' own navy, he
might rely on the navy of Austria..1. But,
not especially anxious, to become an ex
ile, the Neapolitan ruler limited to Gari

his course upon Naple?, he (the King)
would lend him the Neapolitan navy,
with a military force, to take with him
lor hostile operations against Venetla.
incensed at this base perfidy,' Gari
baldi communicated it to the Emperor
of Austria, who immediately recalled his
fleet to Trieste, and ' abandoned his
treacherous cousin to his fate. So runs
the story, and it is too positively detailed
to leave much reasonable doubt of its
being founded on facts. ' '.. ;

when the occasion comes he may be equal
to the occasion.'.'. . The talent of success
is nothing more than the doing what you
can do well, without a thought of fame. I
If it comes at all, it will come because it
is - deserved, not. - because it is
sought after. It is a very indiscreet
and troublesome ambition which cares
so much about fame about what the
world says of us as to be always look
ing in the face of others for approval
to be always anxious about the effect of
what We do or say--fo.be always shout

therefore addressed every member of the

Genttcvien:': The report has been cur
tent abont here for'a long time that Mrl
Douglas' : course. -pon : the . Lecompton
Constitution was far from being such as
represented to the public eye. It seems
to me that if there has been duplicity or
intrigue on his part on this subject, the
fact should be known in this .Territory
and to citizens in our neighborhood- If
his conduct has been such as persistent
rumor avers it has been, it is due to the
Democratic party nay, to ' the whole
country; that his falseness should be
published to the world. . ! -.
Understanding that you are possessed
of some information touching this mat
ter, I beg that you will communicate to
me, as the President of the Democratic
Association of ! Leavenworth, such
knowledge as you may have relating
thereto. I have no hestation in saying
that my purpose in addressing -you is to
procure a more extende'd inquiry; if the
facts should warrant it, and trust that,
beannc this m mind, you wnl . aid me
all in your power to direct the inyestiga-

I'am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant, ' ;

IjZavem worth, Arg. CT, 1PC0.
' ,: In reply to your note of yester
day, I cheerfully lay before you such
information as I possess pertinent to the
inquiry you propose.
I was an . officer of the Lecompton
Convention from niy .position, neces
sarily, 'a watchful observer of its' pro
ceedings, and I became ' somewhat con
versant with tho influences brought to
bear to sway , its determinations touching
the questions of submission and non-submission
of the Constitution.
The Convention first met early in Sep
tember, 1857, and having elected officers
and appointed committees, adjourned to
the latter part of October. It was given
out that the object was to await tho re
! suit f the Territorial elections, which
were to take place'early in October, and
to shap the conduct of the Convention
accordingly, but the main purpose of
the recess was to allow time to ascertain
the views of Democrats holding influen
tial places in the councils of the country.
When the reasseinblage took place,
and the subject of the 'disposition of the
Constitution, intermediatlybetween the
Convention and Congress came up, it
was found that the body was divided
into three parties: one in favor of send
ing the instrument direct to Congress;
the second in favor of submission of the
whole instrument to the people; and the
third in favor of submitting the slavery
clause only. ...
It was understood that Governor Wal-
f ker and- Secretary Stanton were ittfaTorH
ot an entire submission; f ;it' was very
naturally supposed that: they ; represen
ted the views or wishes of theAdminis
tration. The partial submission party
was led by General Calhoun, the Presi
dent of the Convention, reported to be a
favorite of Mr. Douglas, possessed of
his confidence : and in correspondence
with hiini, and the scheme was generally
known as the "Douglas plan.". 1
After a protracted and acrimonious
debate, the question was put on the 5th
or bth of November, and the non-sub-missionists
triumphed by one or two
votes.. : By extraordmarv exertions a re
consideration was had on the 7th, the
day of final adjournment, and the plan
of submission, through which tbe Con
stitution went before Congress, was car
ried by a bare majority. ' .
Un the evening of the day on which
the non-submissionists were victorious,
Gen. Calhoun requested me to endeavor
to secure for his side a. member, since
dead, Mr. Swift of Jefferson County, who
had previously voted against submission,
and over whom it was supposed I could
exercise some influence. In the, course
of our conversation, Gen. Calhoun in
formed me that he had in his possession
a letter from Mr. Douglas, either sug
gesting the project of partial submission,
or giving assurance of his support to it,
I do not recollect which., . ...
Since the 'death of GenV Calhoun, I
have had several conversations with Mr.
Oliver Diefendorf, his brother-in-law
who maintained with him and his family
all the intimacy such a relationship be
speaks on the subject' of that letter,
and upon every occasion Mr.. Diefendorf
referred to the letter as being among the
papers of the deceased, in the possession
of his family. I have more than once
expressed my surprise that a man of
spirit, as I supposed Gen. Calhoun to
have been,, should have silently sub
mitted to the gross indignity put upon
him in the Senate by Mr. Douglas, and
3Ir -Dj efc
Itpfpnrmrt hna rhallp
spect for the deceased. by answering that
very few knew the nice sense of honor
he had: that he: considered, the corres
pondence private, and would have sub
mitted to anything rather than violate
that privacy. . .. r. ' ' ,
If a formal investigation of this affair
should be determined upon, permit me
to suggest that you address every mem
ber of the Convention, and particularly
those who voted with! Gen. Calhoun on
the submission issue. . , ':: v- ' ,:. -''!
. I, would also indicate, for. your, con
sideration, the propriety of communica
ting with Col. Andrew. J. Isaeks.,of this
city. Though' not a . member ; of the
Convention he was 'present during the
whole struggle on -submission; he zeal
ously labored with Gen. Calhounfor the
form adopted, and, like Jiini, was. an ar
dent friend of Mr. Douglas, putatively
representing his views. -

together in the Lecompton.struggle.,V I

six'yearaj and. having1 been a member of
three several 1 Legislatures in , Kainsas,
am somewhat conversant with the' his.
tory of politics therein. t u ' ' ' -' i '.''.
' Some time V before , the; Lecompton
Constitutional Convention ; assembled, at
its adjourned session 3Ir. Calhoun
showed me a letter, which.' he told'me
had been written by Hon. Stephen-A.
Douglas, and sent to hiin for " the V pur
pose of influencing members of the Con
vention to adopt a particular fornu. of
submitting the , . Constitution. In that
letter, Mr. Douglas advised a plan of
submission,, which . plan" was finally
adopted ' by the ' Convention!' And it
was further stated by Mr. Douglas in
the, letter before spoken of, that if the
plan , which he (Douglas) had advised
should be approved by ' the Convention,
that he (Douglas)' would pledge' its
passage through Congress. And, in
order that what little I could do toward
this plan about might be done
Mr, Calhoun invited my : co-operation,
but I did not go to Lecompton during
the sitting of the Convention. '
After the -Leeomptori Constitution
had been framed,: the' Democratic party
assembled in Convention; at Lecompton
for the purpose of nominating a State
ticket. During the sitting of that Con
vention; General' Calhoun, desiring mc,
against my wishes, to accept the nomina
tion for Lieutenant Governor, and, seenir
ing to supposo that my: indispositiou to
accept arose from , doubts as to ultimate
success, frequently and emphatically as
sured rue that Mr. Douglas would stand
by the Constitution" " in Congress, and
would in no event abandon , ;tcus"
Hence we made the canvass with strdng
hopes.1;1'" ''.'':' ' ' !
A' short time before the 'meeting of
the Charleston Convention. I saw . Mr.
Calhoun's eldest' son iii ' Leavenworth
City, and asked him whether his mother
was in possession of the letter referred
to, and lie replied that she was. I then
suggested to him my ' intention, of ad
dressing her a letter, requcsling it of

He said I could get it. . I did address a'
letter to Mrs. Calhoun, and in responso"
a letter was addressed to Oliver Dlefeh
dorf, Esq., of Leavenworth" City, by-onc
of her children.
This letter I saw and bad in'mv nwir
hands, and in substance it stated that
Mrs. Calhoun had already -been offered
the Sunt Of two thousand ilnllare. Can tViiv-
