I couUl mention. bcores of Chicago men who own fnrniH In Illinois, Michigan, Indiana or 'Wisconsin, and, almost without'Oxecption, thoy scorn to tako more prldo in tlicir farms than in their business or profession. Judgo flrcshnm is not only fond of his farm, hut he is particulaily fond of pigs, and, being a nativo of that part of Indiana which projects Into tho laud dt tobarco, whisky, 811111108111035 and Minrp-noswi pigs, tho Judge's Ideal hog is ono whoso noso Js not too slioit nor his back too broad. The Judge was In Snrlngllcld liold ing court a few months ago, and tho genial Colonel Wiggins of tho i.e.land. took him out to sco tho famous I.cluud fm in.

Jmlgo Cireslinm cast such wistful oyes at these long-nosed fellows tliat Colonel Wiggins made up a box of them ai)d spnt them over to tho Indiana farm. You can no inoro wean a man born along tho Ohio lliver from his lovo for long-legged, tli in-backed nigs th.-tn you can tear out of him his lovo for noises, and if Colonel Wiggins dinps at the Whlto House next year ho ox pecU to sit down before a savory dHh of liver and bacon. One of tho most interesting features i of the "Walto funeral service observa ble from tho gallery of tho IIqusq of r.cpio?onta,tlvos tho other day, says the HWi Washington correspond ent, was tho way soino great men pray .and tho fact that some great men do not pray at all. When-tho prayer was announced the President net- tho examplo to his Cabinet by dropping his head until tho bridgo of his noso rested on tho brim of his silk hat, which bo liuld in his right hand.

Secre tary llaynrd, sittingon the President's left, covered his fnco with Ills black cloved left hand, his whole body-bent lonvard and his loft elbow resting on his knee. Seorotary tfairchild, who looked exceedingly short, placed be tween twoBUch tall men as llaynrd and Kndlcott, sat bolt upright, wJtli his eyes almost closed, but ho fol lowed tho service very closely aifil was ready with tho responses. Secre tary Endicott inclined, his, head slightly, raising his left ho,nd to support It. Secretary Whitnoy'n loft hand was raised to his Chin, but his head .was not inclined, and there was no cvideneothnt ho was participating in tho prayer. Mr. Garland raised his loft lfaiurto his face and played ncok-'ai-boo between tho lingers of his black cotton . gloves. Vilas nnd Dickinson reverently inclined their heads, and Mv. Vilas made an. ollort to follow- the service, but his tongue tripjied and ho finally stopped. Sen ator Tuvarts was nervous during tliO player, and his long, lean Angers played a tattooovor his faco. Senator Sheiroaiuestcd his face upqnhis right hand and maintained that position throughout tho prayer, Senator Allison was tho only ono of tho Con gressional eommittoo appointed to es rortthoremalnfl to Toledo who showed no interest In tlio service. lie sat boit upright, looking straight ahead of talmV Senator Kdmunds, sitting almost directly behind liim. his head covciod -with tlio little silk scull-cap which ho sometimes woais, hod plunged his face in his twobnml'j, which woro clasped in front of him op tho desk, senator lliscock, liko Senator Allison,' sat bolt upright. Senator Ttansom was uneasy, iro rested -his forehead first pn ono liand and then on the other and thonou bath hands. Senator 1'almor hod a little black-headed cane in his hand, and during tho. prayer he hold it up to his lieht eve as a sort of muto upolosy for his lack of devotion Senator i Cockrclt ami Senator lute loaned very devoutly forward and i-oycicd their faces with tliclrhaudi.

Tho way in which lie repelled ono of thq applicants on his generosity is something liko this: Across tho hotel table from tho Senator sat a sad-oyed woman boarder wliohadonco been in gdpcircuinslnncps, but, upon whom adversity had 'frowned of, Jfil.' "Sonator," said this ,etul-oyc(l lady, "you Southerners are so chivalrous, so ready to assist those in distress."

American History" devoted lo Washington, savs C'coil Hampden Cults Howard in the April number of J that monthly, serves to bring up an other incident in his cniccr which, though known tun general way, has a detail which Is new to most students Of histoiy. On the occasion of his visit to Ports mouth, K. H., in 1780, ho called, nmong other places, nt tho residence of Jlndam Lear, the mother of his private secretary. Before his call ho sent Madam Lear a nolo lequcsting that ho might sco all the: chlldicu. The occasion wns a gala one in every censo of the word, nnd every atten tion duo tho honored Father of our Country was shown to him, The good Madam Lear, after tho return of Washington, received from Martha Washington three china ornaments "fort lie chlldicn." They were tnkon fiom Washington's own mantel, nnd represented tespcctlvcly ti bird on n branch of n tree, a peasant with a boitnuct of (lowers, and n' girl with (lowers. For many years theso remained in the possession of Madam Lear and her family. They were destined to ho separated, however. The bird on the branch of n tree wns presented by Madam Lenr to Mrs. Kdward Cutts of 'Portsmouth, N. IL, who was jjiuj-fc?-her iiitlniate.trnTiT-mt''T)Cttt-een wliomjJsHs'wero icgularlyaud often 0X"-nangcd. Tho bird was then in excellent condition, without a crack in any patt. The gift was duly ap 'predated by the recipient nnd care fully guarded. Threcsi-oro years and ten have elapsed slnco it went into the hands of its third owner. Dining that time it lcmaincd tliiity years or uiorcin Portsmouth, N. II., an object of curiosity and delight to both young and old. In 18X1 when Mrs. Edward Cutts removed to the central part of tho State of Vermont, with her children and grandchildren, the bird wns btill chciislied and followed tho fam ily. Put fortv-fivo years havo sinco passed, and tho china is sadly-nicked ami marred sin'ee tho removal lo Yeimont. Tho spreading branch is gone, and only tho bird on n treo stump remains to show its former glory. From. Mrs, KtlwoTd Cutts It descended to tlio family of that lady's only son, tlio late lion. Hampden Cutts, and at present is in tho homo of tho writer, thq grandson, of Hon, Hampden Cutts. As a specimen of work in china of nn early dny It is unique, and, oven In Its present condition, roveals con siderable of the Original shapo and figure. Trifling In its intrinsic value, it has from association an unusual In terest, especially as it is difficult to tell its exact ngo.nnd earliest associa tions. Tho meio fact of Its having been in Washington's" possession gives it gieat interest, but, when wo dpubjo 'or treble thUt, ns ono inny by tho mon nnd things clustering about it in suc ceeding, generations, it has no com mon vnluo that man may cstlmatei ,i ' i ,, , , a Pllt.

Titr. r.NSVIMI CMPAI(I. Tho campaign w as vigorously fought dining the winter in Washington, Mr. Clay leading his forces in person and dliccting thu general managgment of tho canvass. The following ac count of otlior events in this memo rablo contest is from an interesting article on tlio subject contributed to thelloston Traveller: "clay's inp.vnt school." The Young Men's National Itcpub lican Convention met in Washington on Monday, Ufo 7th day of May, 1832. Nearly every .State in the Union wns represented, and theiowcic present "lOdclegates, among uhoimverc many who afterward becamo eminent in publiclife. William Cost Johnson of Maryland presided, nnd amont: the vice-presidents were Charles James Faulkner of Virginia, William Pitt Fcssenden of Maine and Gcorgo W. Burnett of Ohio. Tho most of tho tlmo of tho conven tion was spent in speech-making, and tho interest culminated on Friday when Mr. Clay was conducted to tho convention, and each momber was personally presented to him, A' strong platform was adopted declar ing for protection to American indus try, for a 11 ui form system of intoinat improvements, for .a fearloss and in dependent oxeiciso of tho constitu tional functions of tho United States Senate, nnd denouncing in vigorous, terras tlio course of tho administra tion, especially lit tho mutter of re movals from oilico and its conduct of affairs with foreign nations.

Of course Amos Kendall talked tho matter over witli Isaac Hill, and tho result wns a meeting of Ifi'.l members of tho Now Hampshiio Legislature the latter part of June, nt which it was recom mended that n general convention of Democratic-Republicans frioudlv to tho re-election of General Jackson, "to consist of delegates equal to tho number of electors of President in each Stato bo held In Paltimoro on tho third Monday of May, 1832, to nomiuato a candidato for Vico-Prosl-dont aud to tako. such other measures in support 0 tntj ro-olectlon of An drew Jackson as may be deemed ex pedient." This recommendation was indors'ed by tho Democrats of othor Stato Legislatures nnd constituted the formal call for the nnsT pr.Moci:.Tic con'vkn'tiox. Tho convention met at Italtimpro on tho 21st of May, 18:12, every State except Missouri being represented. Tho call.havlng, originated with Now Hampshire, tho convention was very properly Called to order by Mr. Sum ner of thnt State. General ltobort Lucas of Ohio waa ehosqn temporary chairman, and John A.

Ostensibly it was to furnish a inoro complete expression of.tho voto of tho people, but really it was tho scltin" up of n gigantic and inexorable machine. The famous add much-criticised two-thirds rulo which has become ono of tho unnltornblo laWB of Democratic conventions, has made it marc diulculf, fpr delogatcs from States hopelessly in tho control of the opposite party to unite and forco upon delegates representing Democratic States a candidato whom tho latter do not want, a danger that is frequently 11 threatening one In conventions where a baro majority voto is. all sufficient. Major Lewis and Amos Kendall wero shrewd poli ticians, but thoy buiUed bettor than they dreamed. - SENATORS' HOBBIES, Vni louft Tilings Over "WlilohOlmulicru or tlio Semite Aro u lilt Cranky. Nearly overy man in the United States SeuntOy says a Washington cor respondent, has a hobby. Senator Blair can talk about nothing but his Educational bill, and ho cafs, drinks, and thinkfl education, and sleeps with a Commissioner's repa.rt under his pil low. Sherman's hobby is finance, and he has rhlilcn it to somo purpose. Colquitt's is temperance, and Wilsqn of Iowa is nstrido of tlio prohibition Iiojsc, and ho believes thnt thcro will be a Prohibition Picsidont of ,tl;c United States by and by. Scnntjr Slewnit'fl hobby is silver.- Piddle borger's hobby is tho abolishing pf ex ecutive sessions, and Mat, UnnsohOs hobby is North Carolina and tho whiteness of his cults, Tom Palmer's hobbles are many. Tho chiof of them aio tho Porchoron horse, tho Jersey cow nnd .Marcus Aurolius An touiiius, tlie old lioman Kmpcror. Gcoigo Gruy's is. the law. Ho would lather piactico at the bar than beforo tho Senate. Arthur P. Gorinan's hobby is politics allied to tlio theory that to tho victors belong tbo spoils. Senator Brown has a very good hobby in tho Baptist Church, of which ho is one of tlio pillars, nnd Jonathan Cliaco, the Quaker, rid 03 tlio tariff hobbv horic ouitc frcnucntlv. Sena tor Cockrell's hobby is comniiftco work, and ho grinds away liko a Iforso in a treadmill nnd accepts nil the work thnt tho others put upon him. Cullom's hobby hns boon Interstate commerce. It is now tho postal tclo graph, and his resemblance to Lincoln, i nm told, pleases him. Hoar of Massachusetts has a number of hob bles, and nmong them are American history and bibliography. Hour knows all about books, and 1 vonturo to say ho can tell you just where cvciy 0110 of the descendents of tho families who camo over in tlie Mny llow'er live .to-day. Kenna of West Viiginia hns 11 hobby in amateur photography, llo hns photographed everything within reach in Wash ington, and lie has inado his left cyo actually soro fiom looking through thocamera. McPlicrsonof Now Jorsoy has a hobby in fine stock. ' EijU niilnds'fl hobby is parliamentary lav and the rules of tlio Senate, mid John J. Ingalis's hobby is tlie finding out of now words for Ills ideas, tlio result of which search appals 'the Senato liko an onslaught of genius. Allison's hobby is diplo macy, llo never lets tho loft hand know whnt tho right hand is doing, and Iugnllsouco said of him that ho could walkover tlio baro iloorofttlio Senate in wooden clogs aud make no more noiso tiiau a ity 011 tlie ceiling. Torn, Bow en's hobby begins withn P. and I leave tho loader to guess whether it is poker or politics. Frank Illscoek'fi hobby is lrauk lliscock. jieagan'fl sionuy is interstato com merce, and Leland Stanford's hobby is tho breeding and raising of fust tiolliughoiscs. OIiR SLIM. .1131.
