The Niggkr Mania its Rksults. A
Yankee paper has the following account
of a late nigger demonstration in the
" National Capital :
The negro eiimenta is growing very
strong and demonstrative in Washington.
Last week 'the Capital State" was treated
to a procession of the negro order of Odd
Fellows. The turn, out is said to have
been very fine, and Cuffy is said to have
dispor ed an immense quantity of gold
lace an tinsel. Negro delegations from
other cities joined in, and after parading,
with martial music, through the streets,
tbey repaited to a hall, where the enter
tainment was changed to speeches and
tongs. There was a great display of ora
torical talent, and there was no end to
tongs th performance closing with a
terrible abolition songs, set for the occa
sion, inwich the whole company joined.

Retaliation. The Opinion of Oliver
Cromwell.
The motives actuating Oliver Crom
well, in the earlier part of his career,
were resistance to tyrants, and the es
tablishment of true liberty. Successful
aa he was, it is well to consider bis con
victions in regard to retaliation, as af
fording instruction for the present time :
"He declared, therefore, in quarters
from which he was aware it would speed
ily be repeated in their places of chief
resort, be declared often and openly,
that in war it was necessary to return
upon any side all the violent things that
any of the one side did to the other.
This was done for preventing greater j
mischief, and for bringing men to fear I
war," &c -Foster's British Statesman : j

half bushel of China berries well picked
from the stems, put into a kettle, and
add three gallons of water; boil down to
one gallon, then strain the liquor, through
a sieve, from the seed and skins, and add
as much pine wood (the richer the bet
ter) soot as will make a good black and
it is ready for use ; a pint of good or a
quart of weak vinegar, (or take small
bear,) first mixed with the soot will make
it better, and if you add tbe white of an
egg to half a gallon of the liquor it will
be bett, and equal to any Yankee black

trouble and we have seen boots cleaned
with it inferior to none in gloat, and will
