The United States has never desired 'o remain a land owner. The reason usually given is that the Government realizes more from taxa tion on improved values than it could by retaining the laud for an advance, or bv becoming a landlord and managing its own estates; but it would be difficult to demonstrate this, and if the contrary were shown, the Government would not now change its policy. Indeed, a very large proportion ot our lanoiess citizens have come to regard the public domain . , nr., as the heritage t tne people, inei concede the legal title to be in the tiov ernmeut, but the lands are "public lands," held in trust for settlement. Any attempt to lock them up or reserve them for any" purpose, is considered an fn-fringemc-ut of the sovereign preroga tives os the settler. This feeling is so strong, that when it becomes necessary for the l resident to reserve oy r-ittu- lit... .ilar anv tlArt mil of tilt' nllbHc 1.1 It VIUV. - - J f - 1 domain from settlement, as for the tem- porary use ot a nomeiess inuiau inut, the act costs the Administration much popularity in the West. it mav be considered settled that no policv withdrawing or withholding per manently from entry any large portion of the public lands will ever be adopted in the United States. In consequence of the rapid development of the coun try, the lands have become much more valuable than thev were when this pol icy was inaugurated. By putting up alternate sections at auction, the tov ernment could have realized an immense revenue; vet the tendency has been to charge the settler less, rather than more, for the land he is permitted to enter. Ciider the homeatcad law, which better than anv other represents the spirit o our present land policy, the settler in most of the States and Territories where entries can be made pay to the Gov ernment eighteen dollars only for 1W) acres of land. ,. In the earlv history of our land policy, after the "Northwest Territory and "Louisiana" became the property of the nation, the lauds were offered at public auction aud freely old to all buyers This system, and that of the Royal grants imd charters which preceeded it, both lavored tne iorniauuu w.

He seems to have inherited it. But about the best story that was told on the whole trip was one of Col. John Mason Brown's. It was not a humorous story, but relate to a bit of secret war history that is exceedingly interesting. It is vouched for by Uol. Brown. The story runs as follows: It may be remembered that about 1860 and 1861, just as the great rebel lion was being inaugurated, there was great talk of the scarcity of ammuni tion ou the anion side. It was well known that the war would be a Titan tic straggle, the wrestle of giants, and the materials of war were not so plentiful as were necessary. One day the brother Of Mr. liedemont uuront, wnonow runs a great gunpowder manufactory in Dela ware, received a message from Mr. Sew ard, the minister of war, to come imme diately to Washington. The message was urgent, the time cityical and Mr. DnPont knew that it must be a grave matter; he hurried on to Washington, and Mr. Seward held a conversation with him immediately after he reached the city. "You know how tight we are for ar ticles of war," began the great minister; "now I want von to start immediately for England "and buy up all the salt petre in the European market. The government has implicit confidence in you. We know your knowledge of salt petre, and that you are able to buy bet ter aud cheaper than any agent we could send. Buy everything up-the gold will follow vou on the next steamer Mr. Da Pent hurried off to New lork and caught the first Liverpool steamer. When he arrived in England, he went to the banking house of Brown, Ship lev & Co., with whom he transacted all his business. He told them his object i.i coming there, and asked them to ad vance him 2,&00,000. The head of the firm was most polite; he bowed to the around, he smiled and rubbed his hand, but reallv the sum was so large, and really they could not afford to give it. They would like the best in the world Mr DnPont. etc.. etc. Mr. DuPont failed to get the money.- He posted over to see George Peabody, the millionaire banker.

The City. We reproduce the following excellent a avtaa- editorial from that excellent pupcr, Natchez Democrat. It shows that the rural districts are more favorable for the development of healthy minds in healthy bodies, and that the large cities make drafts upon the country for men to fill the most arduous and respoawDte pw tious: Studies ia the South. Several days ago while railroad work men were cutting through Bock Pass, they suddenly broke into a cavity. Near the centre of the place they found a skeleton under a large rock that had fallen from above.

No parent, no nurse, capable of alarming the voung, is fitted for her position. Children, as nearly as poam ble, should be trained not to know the sense of fear, which, above everything else, is to lie feared in their education, early and late.

When Fred. Douglass at 10 o'clock came into Leiderkranz Hall to deliver nis speecn, he found a verv large crowd in atten dance, many white people having come to hear his plea for his people. On the stage besides the leading colored meu sat ex-Attorney General James Speed, of Lincoln's cabinet; Gen. Jas. . Eakin. IX S. A., retired, and a num ber of other whites of prominence. Douglass spoke two hours, his speech being logical, often humorous, and al ways interesting. He sketched the his tory- ot his race since emaucinaiiuu, frequently and sarcastically severe on the government, and incidentally on the Republican party. He was listened to with interest, and received frequent and generous applause. Since the conclusion of his speech the convention has in vain labored to com plete it9 organization, too many ora : . .a nr. tha rtnnr nnd Green, tem porary chairman, who is. presiding while Douglass rests irom nis receui eAeinun, is unable to control tuem.

Sutw is among th? first in lurnisning from the several States the brain that governs the country. The commercial cities ot this country ium r, fewer of the men who mould and form political opinion, than any similar popu lation in the union. London is Eng land. Paris is France, but New l ork is not the United States. Xo occupant of the Presidential chair, with the excep tion of the present incumbent, who has succeeded to it by accident, has ever been taken from any of the great cities. The greatest statesmen iu the Senate and in the House have come from the rural districts. It is therefore a little arrogant on the r.art nf the inhabitants of the great cities to affect a contempt lor their "country cousins, and to assume airs ot superiority over them. Even in com morcial life we freuuentlv find the most .nmwfnl business men are poor boys whn have come from the country With thair hahita of industry and economy. and have bv their exercise achieved weaith and distinction in business cir cles.

A nut wathed ashore on some tropical beach is rolled up the tide. Then the rain rots the husk, and the winds bury it in the sand, and next year a cocoanut palm is springing from the arid ground.
