AyOTrnR LJTTELt. A citizen of Arkansas has recived the following letter from John Quincy Adams; Qrtnetr, Mass., June 5, 1871. Dr.tn Sam: I cannot ptass over, silently, a letter which gratifies nme as anubh as yours, which I received to-day; and yet I feel ashy of speak ing to you or any citizen of the; "subject States." I dislike to earn the retort-'Oh, it is very easy to preach; but suffer as we have and then tell us how you feel, and we will listen." I do try to take it home to myself; and Ido not doubt~ that., in aamilar- circnamstances, I should be to-Jay an "unrepentant rebel"-sore, angry, beaten and detinnt. And with me it would doubtless have been as it, has been with you, that "the tender mercies of ricoustruction had been harder to bear than all the horrors of in vautive war." I should have been gal'el by misgovernment, robbed by izapurtcd hcanvery, of the pit tance which the war had spared; eiaspcrated by willfnl and persia tent mlisreprcaentat.iot; cruelly con duzmned to hopeless impotence for the imputed guilt of cowardly e.-imes I abborreut I should banve biten condemnned, too, to hold my lxesnal liberty at the rnod of a mecenary carpet-baggor or the whim of a military entrap. . I ay that I four I stonid have been an! "irreconciliable." . n stuch a case II think I should 1e : a ky; butl know I sbould be siily if I yrielded to the feelhng. For, whence must my re iicf coase if my last estate isnot to .beequ~e .worse than thiek.e? IsI the "lost cause" can be regained ? By whom, then? If by the North, believe me that the experiment of Seoemsioa has matisfied us that no cause is worth a civil war. That war has confirmed, beyond a blmdow of a turning, the destiny which decreed that there shall be but one confederated people of the North American Union. No. 'Rebellions I might be; but weak enough to await the resurrection of Secession I do not think I could be. You and I and your friends and neigh bors and mint are of onr blood; we were once "fellow-citizens;" and the old-time kindness muxi; linger yet in spots. Our fathers were "breth ren," and that must count for some thing. The whole political problem of the future turns upon the answer to the question, "Shall we lire to gether as frictds or enemies ?'. Now, the whole internal policy of the present Administration says War. Reconstruction meant War, and the Ku-Klux bill declared War; This Union is now held together by force. Certainly, if this is to be permanent, it would have been letter to have parted at first. If the struggle to cast out Slavery ov rthrew the Constitution, what chance is there for a "free" Govern meat, if the North is to rnle the South? South Carolina is to-day tdo most smdmmzel s. parody on Re publican insiLdtlois ::inwe ltRub lican Rome bestrade all the nations of the ancient world, put the sword to their throats, stripped theon bare, r'nl then lacked words to land the the loveliness of liberty. You can not be subject, and we be long free. The untrammeled exercise of local self-government by the people of the States is the salt which preserves our whole system. Take that away and our frame of polity will rapidly rot into despotism. Therefore it is, that, not as a pmrtissn, hut wholly as a fellow-citizen, I trust that all the good citizenis of the seceded States will frankly and honestly accept the revolutionary changes; which have been forced upon the Constitution, and with them cheer fully adopt tha new relations of ami ty and politcal equality toward the em::nhip dtod class which the a' changts involve. And, theretore, I am glad when I sec the noble spirit of your letter prevading the South ern people as it does, despite the the malignity of a partisan press. while the sterling sense or Mr. Val landigham has reformed the North ern Democracy. And it matters not what man may be chosen to lead us So long as his heart is large enough to embrace a Confederate as a brother, and his platform wide enough for every American citizen to stand upon. To compass this end somnetiug of sacrifice is requir ed of us all; munch of self-control is demanded of the South. You and all I hear assure me that the at-j tempt will be made; and if made honestly and in earnest, it cannot fail. Again thanking you for your. letter, I ama, very respectfully, your obedient servant, 3. Q. An.1xs, To 3. T. Trezevant, Esq., Augusta, Ark. -N Y. Tribune. TUKUFT 0F TADT. What a wonderfal oil upon the machinery of human affairs tact is. To know just what to say; to know when to be silent, and when differ entially to listen, is a groat gifL No one can fully appreciate this quality who has not had the mist or of living with a blundering person who never speaks or moves a ithout unintentionally wounding or offend ing somebody. Contiguity with inuch a one is fearful to tae nerves, and temper too. We doubt wheth er tact, in any considerable degrees can be required- It is born with sme, and is as natoral to them as~ the color of their hair ea eycs. We have meen little children who were perfect in it, without the ulightest idea of courst of the diplomnacy they were mssaciag "I say, Jack, hbw did the get the cow up stairs dhe other night ? "*Twisted her ta."' "Well, how did they get 'her dakfmi' "Untwisted it" "O' INex C4ICLL -gAALE uMIT. "You knbw my opinion," amid John Randolph, "of female society. Without it we should degenerate into brutes." This observation ap plies with tenfold force to young men, and those who are is the prime of manhood. For after # cer tain time of life, the literary man may make a shift-a poor one, I grant-to do without the society of ladies. To a youth man nothing is so important as a spirit of devotion -next to his Creator-to some aim able woman, whose image may oc cupy his heart, and guard it from pollution, which besets it on all Rides. A man ought to choose his wife, as Mrs. Pimrose did her wed ding gown, for qualities that "wear I well." One thing at least is true, that if matrimony has its cares, celibacy has no pleasure. A New ton, or a mere scholar, may find employment in study; a man of lit erary taste can receive in books a powerful auxiliary; but a man must have a bosom-friend and children round him, to cherish and support the dreariness of old-age. LACK OF APPREGIATiII OF SAUlTRY UFI. People who live altogether in the country have very little appreciation of its advantages and pleasures. Why should they think ainything of fresh air? It is too commbn. They have it all the time. Everybody around them has it all the time.! And as a general thing, people esti mate very lightly blessings of which they have niever been deprived. It is only persons who are con fined a portion of the time in the city, who are really capable of a full appreciation of country life. Farmers, who wor: the land forI a living. soon come to regard all its 'products with a single eye to proft. There is something very narrowing in this influence. It closes the view to beauty, and the soul against all the poetical and etnobling sen titoents which a proper contempla tion of nature is so well ealculnted to awaken. The tendency with far mers is to become too exc'nsively uwere matter-of-fact machines. The clouds, the sunshine, the shade, the trees, the refreshing showers, the beautiful wild flowers-they see nothing in all these except so far as they may affect their potatoes and turnips and corn. We believe that one principal reason of the higher taste for rural life in England, is to be found in the fact that city pcople live so much more in the country there. The great increase of the facilities for travel is making our count-y rapidly more and more like England in this resp ect. 1PURIFICATION OF DRINKING-WATER. The best method of purifying water is by free'.ing. or distillation. By the cautious use of ice water, if not taken at a too low degree of tempereturs. es peciallr when the bodly is heated to perspfratiou, the dangerous influence of putrescent water on the const itution, producing fever and ague, is at once avoided. By filtration or agitation with coarsely-powdered freshburnt charcoal, either aimal or vegetable, not only will the suspended organic Imatter be mechanically removed, but also the caleareous and gaseous, impurieer, held in solution. The addition of alittie aqueous chlorine, or chlorine gas. to foul water, clean-, aes 'it immediately. This method has the advantage of the water be ing perfect1y freed from any excess jof the precipitant by heat. If eblo 'rated lime be used, a few drops of aupnipric acid will free the chlorine gas eompletely, to act upon the water, saudprecipitate the esuspended lime as gypemn; cooking the water is also Demmaary. An ounce of pow 'deredislum, dissolved and well ag itated inabogshead orimoreof foul water, will precipitato the SAli mat ter is the course of a few hours when the clear portion may be de canted. When the water is ver putrid a scruple *to a dmebhn may be employed to the g-illon, and any alum that may be left in solutima will be pseeipitsted by the addition ef anequivaleut pr~opoton et ar boamts of see&.-- Y.
