CnAs or W. G. K XDALL.-After the com
mittal of the late Postmaster Kendall to ap
pear before the United States Circuit Court,
and answer the charge of embeznling a valu
able letter and appropriating its contents it
was ascertained thatJudge Campbell. before
leaving the city, had adjourned that court till
November next. The 98d being the day fixed
for Kendsll's appeareace, he appeared before
the United States District Court and entered
into recognisee in the same sum that had be
fore required of him ($19,000,) with Emile
La Sere and Dr. Hensley as his saretiee. The
grand jury which had been empanueled were
dismissed until Thursday next, when it is un
derstood Kendall's case will be laid before
THE CROPS-THE WEATHER.
'On Sunday last, says the Independent
of Catahoula we had light showers during the
greater part of the day, but not sufficiently
copious to wet the groundbelow the surface.
Still however, the rain was evidently of much
service. Crops look well, and, with timely
rains, the prospect of an abundant yield was
never greater. " Low and falling," in reference
to all the water courses, is still the cry.
I-The Houston Telegraph, of the 18th,
says:-Our exchanges from all parts of the
State, bring us the gratifying intelligence, that
the late rains were general throughout the
State, and the prospect is that the grain crop
will be fully equal to that of last year.
ItRAs Is EASTERn TExAs.-We hear of heavy
rains at Tyler, and in Upshur county, Texas,
on the 1st inst.
8 The Shreveport Democrat, of the 10th
inst, suys:-The weather is cloudy and cool;
some prospect of rain. The stand of cotton is
said not to be good, otherwise the crops is said
to be doing well, considering the drought.
The river is still receding. Small boats get
along with difficulty. On Wednesday night of
last week there was a heavy rain in several of
the eastern counties of Texas, extending as far
north as Hempstead county, Arkansas. On
Wednesday night last, there was another rain
in same direction, extending somewhat into
1 The Opelousas Patriot, of Saturday
last, says:-Since our last issue we had a very
general and refreshing rain, which did incalcu
lable beneft to the crops. The earth was so
dry, however, that itselffects have passed away
and we are experiencing the drought in all of
its severity. The progress of vegetation, there
fore, is very slow, and the prospects of the
planters still gloomy. As 'for navigation we
have none-large alligators even finding it
difficult to navigate the Courtableau in the
neighborhood of Washington.
8WThe Alexandria Democrat, of Wednes
day last, says:-Rain fell on Sunday last in
some portions of the parish. On Bayou Boeuf
we hear of a substantial shower of a pretty
general character. In the upper end of the par
ish ahd along the river, the benefit from this
source was meagre. But a few drops fell.
We want a steady, powerful rain of ten or
twelve hours duration to give us good hopes
for the crops. Nothing short of this will be
effectual. The river has fallen rapidly within
the last few days, and the water is receding.
We have now "regular-built" low water navi
gation, and shippers must have a bad time of
it in future.
No WoNDER.-The Know-Nothing press are
making much ado over a letter from the Rev.
Dr. Robert Breckenridge, of Kentucky, in fa
vor of.their party. Of course. Dr. Brecken
ridge hates slavery and approves any movement
that promised to extirpate the " evil." He is
an old and inveterate W hig; was a candidate
for the last Reform Conevbtion in Kentucky;
took ground In the canvass in favor of eman
cipating the slaves, and vas badly beaten upon
that issue. Now he is a Know-Nothing.
There is no inqoiusitency in his conduct. He
has only changed the mode of his warfare
against slavery, He is fighting now with a
more effective weapon.
Tus'Moswdxw have established a settlement
about thirty miles from Council Bluffs. It is
composed exclusively of families from the Wes
tern Reserve of Ohbo.

Georgla, sucoessirely; the ofBies of Judge
of the supreme court, member of Ooo

in each. But he was most at home on ,the
stump and in the courtroom. As a most'
popular orator, hebight justly be compared_
to Patrick Henry; playing un "thb hu mini

and tears at his will, as he paesed from

PA YYoua BILLS.-.4 inaanSew.--86me
yeats ago, a farmer in Frederek ceuats,
Md., owed a neighbof of his $O0, and as
soon as he could realize the sum he prompt.
ly paid it over. The morning he called to
pay it his friend appeared to be very thankful
remarking that he was also in debt to an
other person who needed' the money, ands
he would at once take it" to him. This
remark started a train of thought in the
mind of th 'first person, who said to him
self-why lere is $100 paid with $50. I
will at once follow up this matter and see
where it will end. He then followed up
payments of the debts by this one note of
50, until he traced it to the large amount
of $8,750 1 when it got out of his reach.=
Now here is the moral: A owes B a bill,
which if he pays promptly, will be paid by
B to C, and so on through the whole alpha
bet, and it will be surprising to every one,
what a small amount is necessary to pay
off hundreds of thousands by keeping the
"eagles on the wing." Now, when the
money market is so tight and the banks
are unable te discount all thepaper offered,
let persons begin to pay their bills, and by
so doing, they, themselves, will be paid
back in turn. It is a machine which feeds
itself, and propels, by its own offal, the
execution of great exploits. As a word
to the wise is ever sufficient, we think
it only necessary to give this hint to our
business men, who will be able, at once, to
see the vast amount of good the payment
of even a small bill will accomplish in the
