"Cigars and Coguac."
Many years ago there was amoug the Secre
taries of Departmeats out) William 11. Chaw
roiiD, and wo believe l?is name may be still
found amoug the national records, if it is not
remembered by soijae of tlie patriarchs of the
present day.
On a certain occasion a Senator of the Uni
ted States called at the Department to sec this
Mr. CttAwroitD, and, taking u lighted cigar
from his mouth, requested the messenger to
conduct hiiu to the apartment of tho Secretary.
" Yes, sir," replied the messenger, " but first
throw your cigar into the stove." " 1 shall do
no such thing," exclaimed tho indiguant Sena
tor. " Then 1 cannot take you to the Secre
fnry'u roo?u," said tho messenger. The Sena
tor threw hi* cigar away, followed tLe messen
ger, entered tho apartment of the Secretary
in a towering passion, and made a serious
complaint to Mr. Ckawkoud, who replied that
(he messenger had not exceeded his duty ; and
that if he had acted otherwise than as he did it
would have cost him his place!
This was some time ago. Things have sadly
changed for tho worse. We believe there is
not a room connected with all the public offices
of the Government that is not at least occa
sionally fumigated with tobacco smoke. Dig
nity and politeness are banished, tho comfort
of many persons is disregarded, the safety of
these offices and their papers is jeoparded, and,
of course, tho labors of tho smokers are re
tarded?for, say what you will, a cigar between
tlio teeth or tingors does not facilitate the
labors of a clerk.
We are not at all in favor of placing gentle- ,
men under constraint, and would on no account
abridge any froedom or privilege that ?-omports ,
with what is right in fact and right in appear
ance ; but we cannot see how smoking tobaceo ,
can be justified on either ground; and as real J
gentlemen do not drink to excess, the right to ;
smoke cigars in a public office will include the n
less annoying practice of drinking whisky and
water at every desk. This practice would be
as likely to be tolerated in many a private
counting-room or office as that of smoking
cigars.
In the Treasury Department, the space above
which the great spiral stairway ascends ,has
been converted into one vast, noisome spittoon,
where the saliva of tobacco, the ends of cigars,
&c., accumulate in such manner as to almost
defy the sanatory efforts of tho careful laborers.
This is all so swaggering and ruffianly in ap
pearance, ho incompatible with the dignity, de
corum and agreenbleness that should prevail,
and so likely to impress every visiter with con
tempt, instead of respect for the places we have
named, that it should bo reformed by the au
thority of the President and Secretaries, if not
by the voluntary resolves of the many who
offend against tho laws of politeness and pro
priety. v
We have advocated the elevation of the clerks
in many particulars?equality between them
and tho officers placed above them?the restric
tion of the appointing and removing power?
ihe institution of a tenure of office, &c. We
shall therefore not be deemed disrespectful or
unkiud in intention when we urge the neces
sity of the correction of abuses practised by
themselves.
Tub Pampkho.?An extra from the office of
the Savaiiuuh Xtwt of Saturday last states that
the editor had learned, by the arrival of tin- St.
Matthew's, from Florida, of the safety of the
L'ampero, aud a number of the particulars of
the expedition of Gen. Lopez, from the time of
his departure from New Orleans to his landing
ut llahia Ilonda. " The l'ampero, having left
Sew Orleans, proceeded to Key We#t; near
there she remained screral days, for the pur
pose of evading tho vigilance of the Spanish
ships. Having learned from the Key Wet I
irreekera that (he inhabitant$ of (he district of Vu
clta Abajo (nearly opposite Key West) were up
in nrrnt, Gen. Lopez determined to avail himtelf
of this information to make hit landing among
lUetH. Steering for Pallia limda, his purpose
was to land at a small port called Morello.
When about eighteen leagues from Havana the
machinery of the Pampero got out of order, the
consequence of which was that she floated for
two hours along the currentin the Gulf stream,
approaching all the while towards the city of
Havana. Before the accident was repaired, she
was carried full in view of the Moro Castle; and
even in sight of, the soldiers on the water bat
tery. Getting up steam again, she bore away for
Pallia Honda, intercepting on the way a coast
ing vessel, from which Gen. Lopez took two pilots.
The l'ampero approached within fifty yards
of the coast, when a landing was made without
difficulty. General Lopez and his comrades
were received by the inhabitants (who congre
gruted iu great number*) with open arms, and
indeed, with every demonstration of favor. The
planters brought forth fruit and provisions of
all kinds, and soon a large part of Lopez's force
were mounted on horses, the voluntary offer
ings of the people. The Pampero remained all
night, aud left for Key West nelt morning,
nearly destitute of coal. Her want of fuel ac
counts for her not haviog boeu early heard
from."

Reading the Will of the Mercenary
Lover.
This morning I received a note from my
affianced bride, Constance Graham, requesting
me to attend at two o'clock that day at the
house of her late uncle in Ilarley street, for
the purpose of hearing his will read. I had
tho greatest pleasure in complying with this
invitation. Though Constance is the prettiest
and most amiable girl of niy acquaintance, 1
had determined never to marry her while her
uncle lived; he had frequently proclaimed her
bis heiress, but as frequently took offonoo at
something or at nothing in her behaviour, and
bequeathed his vroalth to a hospital, prison, or
lunatic asylum. 1 felt quite easy on the pre
pent occasion, for Mrs. Bates, Mr. Graham's
housekeeper, had given roe information that,
only an hour before her master s death, he had
told her ho had handsomely provided for Con
stance. I felt, however, that it was my policy
to appear ignorant of that circumstance, Con
stance being very romantic, and Constance ?
mother very suspicious.
At the appointed time I walked into the draw
ing-room in Utrley street; the very few rela
tive?" of tho old gentleman were assembled.
There was Constance, looking as Hebe might
hare looked, if ever Hebe had worn crape and
bombazine; Constance's mother looked very
stiff, cross, and uneasy; an elderly female cou
sin, and a stripling nephew of tho deceased. I
feared ncne of thorn. 1 knew that Mr. Graham
disliked his fine latly sister in-law, despised
the servility of Irs elderly cousin, and dreaded
[ the frolics of his stripling nppbfcw. I 'fated
myself by Constance, and in a soft tone hpgan
to protest my affeetibn and disinterestedness.
*' Knowing the caprice of your uncle, my be
I loved," 1 said, "1 have every reason to con
j olude that 1 thall hoar you disinherited; this
, however, will be of little moment to me ; I have
! enough for comfort, though not for luxnry, and
j m the long beautifijlly says?
"Btm'flx. / in piy Iienrt, 1* it nevei tbrurot
llwt Che wealth ot the cottage in lovo." '
" I fanoy, Mr. Chilton," t*id Constance's
mother, looking excessively sneering awlahrew
i?h, " that it is pretty well known that my
daughter i? the sole heiress of her male's wealth."
"Indeed, madam !" I replied, with a start of
surprise. " I was not aware that aiiy surmise
was hazarded couceruiug tlio contents of Mr
<?raham's will."
" I have heard a surmise hazarded," sharply
interrupted the elderly cousin, "that Mr. Gra
ham wae not in his souses when he made it."
1 he mind must be both base and weak,"
retorted Constance's mother, " which could
give credeuce to such a rumor." Aud forth
with a apart;ng dialogue took place between
the two ladies, during which I whispered to
Constance a page of Moore's poetry done into
j prose.
Temple now entered the room, the solicitor
and mtim<U? friend of the late Mr. Graham ;
he was a handsome young man, and hau pre
sumed at one time to lift his eyes to Constance;
iie opened the will, and we ail became mutely
attentive. Oli, what a disappointment' awaited
us. Ibreo thousand pouuds were bequeathed
to Constance, (this wus the old fellow's idea of
.1 handsome provision Five hundred pounds
to the elderly cousin, ditto to the stripling ne
phew, email legacies to the servants, and the
remainder of his wealth to found a cold*water
establishment tor the reception of those who
were not rich enough to pay a gratuity for bq
ing half drowned. Temple read the name of
the attesting witness, and then refreshed him
self with sherry and biscuits. As he was a
trieud of the family, his presence was no re
straint on conversation.
"That will ougbi to be disputed," said Con
stance's mother, looking very red ; " I do nQt
believe Mr. Graham was in his senses when he
uiude it."
"1 thought," said the elderly cousin, with a
anoer, " that the mind must be both base and
weak which could give credeuce to such a su*
mise."
I'ear mamma !" said Constance, " do not
be discomposed; I cm very well contented; I
shall not be a portionless bride." Constance
here held out her delicate white hand to moi
I affected not to s<ic it.
" My dear Miss Graham," 1 said, " do not
believe me so cruel and selfish as to wish to
plunge you into poverty."
" 1 thought you paid that your income was
i sufficient for every comfort 1" remarked the
j stripling nephew.
I did not condescend to answer him, but con
tinued : *' .No, Constance ; though it breaks my
heart to do so, I give you back your freedom,
saying, in the pathetic words of Hayncs Bay
ley, ' May your lot in life be happy, undis
turbed by thoughts of me!' " 1 was just making
to the door, leaving Constance looking more
like Niobe than Hebe, when Temple said, "J.
think the party had better remain till I have
read the codicil."
I reseuted myself in amaze, and Temple forth
with read, that the testator, being convinced
mat he had received no benefit from the colv}
water syBtem, revoked aud rescinded his legacy
to it, bequeathing the same to his beloved niece,
Constance Graham.
"Constance! dear Constance 1" I exclaimed,
in the softest of tones. But Constance looked
neither like Jlebc nor Niobe, but as stern and
severe as Medea. I then attacked Temple. " 7s
it legal1 said, " only to read part of a will 1"
" 1 read every word of the will," he replied,
" and, having greatly fatigued myself by ?o
doing, 1 trust that it was perfectly legal to re
fresh myself with u glass of sherry before I read
the codicil."
I was going to utter some further remarks,
when < oustance s mother said, " Good morning,
Mr. Chilton !" in a tone of voice which left me
no alternative but to ccho her leave-taking; and
1 descended the stairs, pursued by a smothered
laugh from the party in the drawing-room, re
turned home in very low spirits, and entered
my adventure, or rather misadventure, in my
diary, deducing from it this very valuable piece
of advice to gentlemen in search of fortune:
" Never belie - that a will is concluded till you
have inquired whether there is any codicil to
it." J
