Richmond Whig, Dec. 21. A TONTlNat. Why etnnot the Congress make use of ton tiue to retire, say one hundred millions. Divide it into ten classes, according to the ages of the subscribers.- Make the shares one hundred thons auJoII;tra acU,and 'giving to each clas ten thousand shareholders. During the lifetime of all the shareholders each would receive six per cent upou his share, but, as in the large number of shares, some would die off each year, the annuity of the survivors is coutiuually increas ing. ' : ' -r i; . And as no man expects to be the first to die, but as every one thinks some of the other share holders piust pass away before him, fo though some must die, e tch man hopes and believes that his chance of survivorship is much better than at other of tie shareholders. . -.... ' ft Is w lottery of survivorship, with a good in-, terest darirg life, continually increasing, and - with the prospect to all, and the certainty to one, of at some time receiving an immense income. The Government, by ihetoütine. retires immedi ately on hundred millions, and pays; annually six uii I lions. It may, before the expiration of the tontine, pay very much more than one hund red millions; but its payments are extended through a long series of years. The preseut rCO-twlHoii of the ' currency would be relieved by the spetriy withdrawal ol the one hundred mil lions. There are but few who cannot spare $1,1)00. und all would, if they knew that by a certain day the currency feature of the notes would be, taken away that no matter in what property they may. change it, be try taxes would find it out and e tt it away.

The sun shone beauti fully ihe whole day, the company was exceedingly . select, and there was not the slightest appearance of interruption from the moment of landing to that ol departure, deutle and simple, and noble nnd plain, were pfesent in larjre numbers, over ' l.OUU. The appearance of that great audience' on one of the Sussex Hills as exponents and sup - of thorough tigl:su manly pluck aud bottom all over the world, brought back as if upon the stage of history the traditional clones of the sun lit days of the ting, glories which we trust lave not altogether departed, but which, judging from the well fought contest and well conducted business ot 1 hursdav, may agaiu shine "upon this "ycartihig : generation of our. On arrival at the station a tew minutes be fore fiv in the morning, w found the "rasping" division had dwindled uway to an insignificant few. Fact is, busy tongue of Madam Rumor had sent them so often to various stations on the Will-o' the-Wisp errand that they were complete ly tired out and after the lesson of Tuesday and Wednesday nights without unythiug turniug up they blew up the whole a Barr, and. quietly stayed at home. ' Never was a secret of such a kind, bet tar kept, and the wide awakes who "knew the exact spot to a yard," found theusclve neck deep in the mire after a. fashion they little calcu lated on. The train consisted ot thirty carriages, in each of which, to ose a theatrical phrase, there was no standing 100m We were "horsed" by two powerful engines, and about a quarter past six, glided out of the station, without least con fusion, and with greatest regularity in the world. After a pTeasaht trip", we at length drew up in a secluded and well selected spot, where we got out, vawued, stretched ourselves, and gulped in the sharp-imring air-moel -vociferously.- On account of the extreme softness of the ground, it was some tiw 'before a decent place cou'd be found. At thia hour, about qu-irter past nine o'clock, the sun shining out n raaguificently as on a fine Miy morning, and a9 we toiled some mile and a luill up steep craggy hill the "stuff" was takeu out of many. At length a chosen spot was taken possession of, and the ring pitched. King first tossed iu his caster, amid loud cheers immediately followed b lleenau, who was eim ilarly'ieceived. Colors were.umr unfolded on both sides, anU the combatants begun to dress Choice ot ground w on by Ileciuui, and theo came the referee; some wrr.nIiu took place in respect to that functiouary, during a hich, betting went on with offers of 4U to 2!, kc , on Ueenan, with out takers. Contusion now became the ruling element, wasting awa precious time, on the top of a hill, that could be Feen for twenty miles around. There were the men and seconds ready, while the relet ce was expected to come from the clouds. ' Three tjtiaiiers of a 11 hoar wa spent in this way before nnuers were finally closed, and the reterer? inrigttviHT proposed was ultimately agtced to. The men tLen began the important duty of the toilet, and -iu th h mds of their re spective valets the operation wjs soo.a completed. The ring vas then cleared, and the men thawed themselves for battle array.- Heetian was the first. to exhibit, amidst the loud cheers Of his ad miters, instantly followed bv King, for whom another silvo arose from the throats of his patty. Exactly at ten o'clock the men were delivered at the scratch, shook hands, nnd prepared to com mence v ' THK FIGHT. Round 1 Both trying to measure their dis tance. Heenan, ran in nnd rlose-l, grasping King by the nevk. and pnt on- the hJ-tashiorted- hug, continuing to hohl his man in such a way that the referee entered the riti and 'strictlv cautioned him not to repeat the operation in a similar man ner. : ' , Round 2 King made fighting as soon as be came to the scratch. There was some attempt at countering, by both, of the most homely de scription very wild, and very plain. Heenaii rushed on King, got the hug again, ant! threw him like a sick of wait on the crass. - the men being lifted, Heenan was found to be bleed ing from the mouth. First blood was claimed and allowed to King. Cheers Round 3 Alter some hard exchanges, Heenan again put ou the hug and threw King on the ropes with an awful spank. AU was iww going dead against Kiug but the first blood. Rouüd 4 King came up with a "mouse" rather visible ui.der his left eye' They went to work in a manner ibat showed the first indication for slashing, Ueenan 'again running in for the hug. It was obvious that he meant to fisjit nothing but a wrestling fight tiaia to be only very subordinate ageiits in ihe business. This called forth loud expressions of disapprobation. Round 5 Both men cime up smiling at one another, and alter feeling. King let fly a tretnend ous right-handed thunderbolt 'against Heoinu's ear thai was heard all over the ring. King fol lowed up his advantage and launched a fellow blow on lleen ni's temple Ueenan, iu despair, hufit;ed again, and threw his antagonist Round C The sledding business commenced at this round both men went in ding-don. Uee nan. finished by again putting on the hug what few hi;s were exchanged, were not of l.e slight est moment upon the issue of the contest Round 7 Give und take now became the or der of the day. A few seconds, then more him meiing, when Ueenan was obliged to fly to his favorite embrace. Caimht King and cross-but locked him fearfully. IVopIe actually held thrir breath a moment, und felt relieve ! when the nr;n aerecarried to their vomers. During this round King gave Heenan a rattliux s!edgc-ha turner 011 the nose with his tiht, and brought the blood down in a stream Cheers and counter cheers. J Round H On time being called, both were tip. recovering, or backing, or ducking, to get away. Some rapid countering took place lit ei.au went in. when the hugging was brought ii.to action, but this time failing woefully, for King turned the table and floored his antagonist. - Round 9 Both sharp to time.

A heavy fall fur King Notwithstanding all this throwing 11 J vantage, Heenan showed nearly as much di.-tret-s as King Round IS It was now plainly seen that the rate was telling powerfully on both men. Some swing raps on each side Ueenan rhot out his right, hand .wiih such terrific, effect that King reeled like a drunken man. ultimately falling in his corner. It was thought tlmt he aould not face the storm again. . That was the first genuine knockdown blow. , Round 16 Ueenan be,: an tot-how that fortune was gliding fast from him..

King went ahead In a perfect gallop, and on time being called for the twenty fi h round, the sponge was thrown up by Ueemii 'a seconds, in toktn of de feat. He was dreadfully punished, and should i.evtT have been permitted to pas beyond the twenty first round. Kin; presented no visible marks of punishment except the mouse on his eye.

Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tines.J WasarxoTOM, December 26. Sufficient evidence bis now reached here to show how the President's proclamation of pardon aud amnesty, aud Lis L'new and easy method" of restoring the TJuion, hare been received in the South. The people of the Southern St ites have seen and read his last message. They have bad time to consider it deliberately and to make up their minds about it, and thev have done so. The result is now before the world, in the shape of resolutions pissed at public meetings and by the. Legislatures of several of the States, editorial articles in leading southern journals, and the private accounts brought by persons direct from the South. All these agree; there is one tone pervadiug them all. It is the tone indicated in my letter of December 10. The people of the Southern States are not fools. They aie as in telligent as their fellow citizens of the North. They desire peace as much as we do. But they want it on honorable terms, and on terms which will secure them the rights which are guaranteed to them by the Constitution of the United States. Those rights Mr. Lincoln deliberately proposes to take away, and he offers to them peace on the monstrous terms that they roust acknowledge the justice of this robbery on bis part! These rights are u they ask, aud they are determined to nght until those rights are acknowledged. This is the great fact that stares us in the face, and only fools and knaves will pretend to ignore it. Look at the resolutions that have been passed by the Legislatures of the States of Virginia and Ala bama, and at the mass mediums in Georgia and North Carolina during the last ten days. It is idle to say, after this evidence, that the people of the Southern States are not unanimous iu their determination: nor can it be doubted that the editorials in the Southern newspapers, faitiful!y reflect, on this subject, the public sentimentof the öouth. It is sad to think how differently a Democratic Administration would deal with tha existing state of things There is no obstacle tu an im- mediate termination of the war on terms honora ble alike to both parlies, except thoe obstacles which are created and fostered bv Abraham Lin coln and his radical advisers. Mr Lincoln olfcis peace to the South. But it is on terms so de grading that lo acccot them would cover the Southern people, and their posteritv forever, with lasting ignomy and disgrace A Democratic President ( Mr. Lincoln's place) would offer peace to the S'juth; but he would offer it on terms so just ami honorable (for it would be sinrjly on the basis ol the Constitution) that the rebels would throw down their arms instantly; the relel armies would melt a waydike a summer morning's mist; the Southern Slates would at once send their Senators and Representatives to Congress, and would return to their allegiance; and the unity, the power, and the glory of the old Repub lic would at once be restored. VisiotM of such a consummation hive flitted across the minds of Mr. Lincoln and bis r.idic. advisers. Jl is just what tliey wouni avert. Mr. Lincoln wants no votes for President to be ca-t in the Southern States in lbf4. If the Southern Suites take part in the next President! I election, Mr. Lincoln is lost. He will be buried so deep, politically, that the future historian will ne er be able to find him He knows this. It is a 1e.1l Izing sense of this fact that induced him to isne his last proclnniation. And it is a fact whit h ought to cause every American to hang his head iu shame, that this cruel and unnecessary war is to be continue! a yetr longer, that thoustnds more lives are to be sacrit.ced, that anguish aud poverty are to be . brought to thoustnds more of our happy homes, merely iu ordor to serve the electioneering purposes of the Republican party. The matter of the exchange of prisoners has become greatly simplified. The negro s hi"eis .-ire in the wnv, nd they alone. They will u"t be i:i the way any longer. Intelligence b is been received here to the effect that the Confederate soldiers have received positive orders not to t ike any more negro prisoncis, but lo give no quarter to any negro soldiers found in arms, or the white officers commanding them. Is Mr. Lincoln K it isfied now with the calamities that he has brought upon ihese poor, deluded people? Four years ago they were happy, contented, comfortable, proiperoua, increasing in numbers, adding mil lions erery year to the wetltlt of the country; nf fectioi.ate servants to kind in isters, nnd nil of them in the homes which ther loved. Look at them now. See the thousinds of them that are wandering about, starving and freezing lo dth. Thousands every week die of small pox. The air here is almost infected by it And when they die hete. nt the North they nie sufTeie 1 to die like cattle. The 311.1)00 of them tint a. in the army will never survive the war. In eight years from now all the negroes who will be left alive will be those who have been fortunate enough not to have been enticed away from heir home-, by their false and pretended friends, the iibo Iilionists. I would like the readers of the the Times to ol jerve 'hat the abolitionists nrd beginning to show their haud in teifird to the next Presidential election. Their month piece, Greeley, s t. s, very cautiously nnd guardedly, that lie hopes we wiil h ire another Presidential election, but he don't know whether we will or not.-That is a feeler, pnt out to see how the idea will strike the people The tilt in meaning is, that the republicntis re so shaping mailers that, when the time comes to hold the next Presidential election, 11 proclaim lion will appear d claring, as "a military tieces- sitv," the election is postponed for the present. Let Ihe p ople watch and pray, for assuiedly they will be led into temptation. X. AN ASTOI'PI IHN tMIOPOS I I IO.w. Jeff Datvl Denounced ui u flctator. From the Richmond Examiner of Deccmlwr 15.
