A young New Yorker called on Secre tary Evarts the other day with a letter from a prominent citizen of N recommending him for a consulate. There were a number of persons present at the time. The Secretary read tiie letter and then glanced at the young man, who pre sented the appearance of one i glow of health. The Secretary said : "Well, really, I should like to oblige Mr.-, hut you do not seem delicate ; you do not look as if you netded to go abroad for your health. Ido pot like to see able-bodied young men go out of the country. There is such an inviting field here tor young men oi energy and says you are a civil eu York the full bition. Mr. giueer. That is a good profession aud oilers abundant opportunities tor distinc tion ; why not go to work at It." All this was said in a tone of Aoice sufficiently loud to be beard l»y every room. The young New Yorker showed very painful embarraasmeu.taud with his face covered with blushes, backed out of the room. He will not be apt to impor tune Mr. Evarts for that consulate. i in the SUNDAY'S BALLOTS IN FRANCE. LATER RETURNS SHOW A REPUBLICAN GAIN—THE CABINET CHANGES. Paris, November 6. — Returns received up to this hour show that 567 Republicans and 350 Conservatives have been elected to the Councils General. The Republi cans have gaiued 85 seats and 29 second ballots are necessary. Five hundred and sixty-eight districts still remain to b« heard from. It is not yet know how the Republican gains are distributed aud consequently how they affect the major in the various Councils General. This is an important point. It is expect ed that when the complete returns are in the Republican triumph will appear con siderably modified. The Republicans, however,claim large gain in the elections for Councils of Arrondissements which were held simultaneously with those of Councils General. OPOSSUMS PLENTY IN TEX 4 8. Oakville Tribune.

A COOL DEBTOR. BY SQUIB. Colonel Crocker of Mansfield, Ohio, was a lawyer and merchant In that place soins twenty-five yearssince. He was a tall, muscular mau,uoble and high-minri •ied in all ids transactions in life, fle purchased his goods In Pittsburgh, aud had occasion to repair to that place at a certain time and fork over, and purchase more goods. On his arrival at Pittsburgh he called his creditors together and told them lie would not be able to pay them but fifty cents oil the dollar, and if they would accept to that proposition, he was ready to do it; if not, they might dispose ot him as they pleased. They would not accept of his offer, but had him arrested and put him in prison. On arriving at the jail, he found three hearty looking men, who were confined for debt, sittiug on their blocks or stools iu rather a des ponding attitude. "Well," said the colonel, to .he one nearest him, "what are you here for?" "For debt, sir," replied the prisoner. "How much is it?" asked Colonel Crocker. "Three or tour dollars was the re ply. ( fhe sheriff being present), "How much is it Mr. Sheriff?" "Four dollar seventy-five." " Well," said the colonel, "here is the money, but don't let me catch you here again for that amount." The colonel addressing tile next one: "Well, sir, what are you here for?" "For debt, sir." "How much is it?" "Twenty-live dollars, or more. "Yess," said the sheriff, dollars aud seventy-live." "Well said the colonel, money, and now clear yourself, and let me not see you here agaiu." The colonel put the same question to the third one, and paid twenty- five dol lars for his liberation. "I have now," said the colonel, "va cated the coop and am cock of the walk. Now, Mr. sheriff, lock me in and go and engage me a good, trusty servant man at a good price. I've got the mouey to pay him ami you also tor your trouble, aud one with whom you can entrust the keys of the prison." ''Very well," said the sheriff, "I will do so." Accordingly the man appeared with the key of the prison In his hand. "Well," saiu the colonel, "you have come, 1 suppose, to work for me while I remain in this solitary abode of justice." "Yes, sir," was the reply. "Now," said the colonel, "get all the help you waut to renovate this room by whitewashing, etc., and, in the meantime purchase oue taole, six chairs, oue bed stead aud bediliug, one wash-bowl stand, a two-gallon jug of the best brandy in the city, loaf sugar, pitcher, tumbler, decant ers, and all that is convenient and com fortable lor a geutleman t. keep house with, and put them iu tweuty-tive here is the soon as the room is cleaned/' and the colonel furnished the necessary funds. All these requisitions being complied with, his hired man was employed from day to day iu attending to visiting gentle men, aud also to see the colonel furnished with all the luxuries and comforts of life. Gentlemen aud ladies aud creditors came to visit the colonel ; the latter were sur prised to see the expense incurred by fir ting up a room, furnishing it with such co.stly furniture. " Well," said the colonel to liis credi tors, "I was raised to live decently aud comfortably, and when you had conveyed me to this horrible place of justice, I found itiu a filthy, uncomfortable condi tion, and I was determined to make it e comfortable during my stay iu this unholy abode. And further," said the colonel, "call on me to-morrow at 3 p. m., and dine with me on a fine roast turkey ; and although my Conveniences to enter tain geutlemeu are not very good, as I am coufined to this room alone, I will en deavor to make you as comfortable as circumstances will permit." "Very well," said his creditors, "wo will dine wiih you on the morrow." At diuner, Colonel Crocker'« creditors said thej did not feel disposed to keep him in prison. If he could not pay but fifty cents on the dollar, they would take it and give him a discharge. "But," said the colonel, "I have incur red some necessary expenses that must be deducted out of that fifty cents." "What are they?" asked oue of his creditors. "One hundred and five dollars anil fifty cents," said Colonel Crocker, "for the liberation of three prisoners, which I conceived to be an act of charity and hu manity; and iLeu again my expenses in lilting up the prjsou room—a duty I ow ed to myseir—treating friends, hiring help, etc., and six days' imprisonment at ¥3 per day, will amount in all to $181, and 1 will pay the balance after deduct ing this." "Very well," said his creditors, "we will do it. * e don't want to see you ab sent from your family for the paltry sum of $4,000, when say, honestly,you are un able to pay the whole." "Very well," said the colonel, "I have told you what 1 would do, and I will do nothing else. Let us make out an esti mate of the amount you are to have." "All being done, v olonel Crocker pur chased a lot of goods, and returned to his residence in Mausfleld, Ohio.

From Vie N. Y. Sun. As the representative of a free country and the appointee of a political party whose chief glory is that it emancipated four millions of slaves, Mr, Welsh would not be warmly welcomed by the slavery bating British if it were known or belle v ee that he himself was a slave holder. We therefore command to the attention of the Senate the Oaceta de la Ilabana of the 18th of the past month of October. This journal, the official organ of the Spanish Government in Cuba, has been tor some weeks past publishing in tabu lated form the statisticts of the sugar es tates of the island.

Special to the Salto . Gazette. Washington, November 4 _ Mr. Willis, of New York, chairmau of the house committee on naval expendi tures, ealled yesterday on the Nacre tary of the Navy in company with his colleagues, to inform him that the committee intended to make a search ing investigation into the accounts of Ex Secretary Robeson, and more pecially into how the money appropri ated for the pay of the navy had beeu directed into other channels. They also said it was the desire of the commit tee to keep the naval expenses down to the smallest possible figare. The Secretary replied that such was his wish, and teat in this matter, as well as in the proposed investigation, would be pleased to cooperate and give the committee all the facilties at his command.

Mr. Editor_ Dear Sir.— Having road many editorials iu the different newspapers of the country, all comment ing on the grand Republican defeat lu their stronghold iu the State of Ohio. I have noticed that all have some shabby e reuse for their utter route, among their thousand and oue causes. They appear to rely upon a few more particular ones for the purpose of Intimidating the peo ple, viz.: That it was the Greenback paity; t liât it was the Labor party, the Temperance party, and also the dissatis fied Republicans, and all other kinds and uiauner of tricks and subterfuge ; aud now sir, why is it they do not come down to the botttom facts and let their people know the very cause aud the unfailing truth? First, that the people of these United States have refused to submit to the nefarious schemes and tricks of the late Republican administration. Second, that the Republican party for the last 16 years have had control of the govern ment, and have not kept their promises made and published to the world their platforms. Fourth, that the people are determiued to root ali aud every one who has ridden into power upon false representations. Fifth, that the people are satisfied that they fairly and constitu tionally elected, upon the 7th day of No vember 1878, Samuel J. Tilden Presi dent of these United States by an over whelming majority of their votes. Sixth, that the people were defrauded out oftheir choice by an uuoonstitutioual agreement, called the Electoral Commis sion, aud only submitted to by the lov ers of their country for the sake of peace and good will towards our own country men. These are some of the causes for the grand victory of the Democratic par ty, and should the same result be gained at the next election for President of the United States, the Democrats wil de mand their choice shall be seated in the Presidential chair, and will see him seat ed at any and all liazarJs. These Mr. Editor, are the real causes of their defeat; so will the people of the old Keystone state repudiate the Republican party on Tuesday, Nov. 6th, by electing the whole Democratic ticket. Pennsylvania will igiva the Republican party such a graud defeat, death and burial, on Tuesday No vember 8th, that there will be no resur rection. on Yours truly J. L. F. CONGRESS. Iu the U. S. H )use of Representatives yesterday ome hundred and ninety bills were introduced during the morning hour; Ac the expiration of the morning hour, the motion made by Mr. Bland, of Mzssourijoa Monday of last week, to sus pend the rules and pass the bill *'to authorize the free coin age of the stan dard silver dollar and restore its legal tender character," came up in order and passed by the necepsary two-thirds vote, the yeas being 163, and the nays 34.
