It, is a very coinuifn thing to hear people excuse their want of cultivation, of educa 'tion. of respectability, of refinement in fact. of all the qualities that give one social value and position by referring to the many great men who have risen from the lowest round ot the human ladder. They point to Saakcspeare, Claude Lorraine, Columbus. Napoleon, and other historically-famous in dividualsincluding Horace Greeley and trace them back to their earlv poverty and ignorance, as an excuse. They say, "If tlice men came from my class, it must be the best one." The matter lies in a nutshell. The lowest circle is an excellent one to get away from. The difference between Wil liam Shakespeare and John Smith is that William could not remain in an ignoble po sition, that eireunisrane s could not keep him there, while John cannot elevate him self above the surroundings in which he was originally placed. It is no disgrace to a man to have uscended from the lowest ami most degrading condition, but it is an overw helming shame it he remains in it w hrn he has suc.i brilliant examples be fore him. To say that a man "has had no advantages" is merely to say he has not ta ken advantage of circumstances. None of the great men in history, those whose names am) memories are like shining lamps, illu mining the presi nt through all the mists of the past, had 'advantages.'' They seized their circumstances w ith auiron grasp, and made them into advantages by their own strong w ills and superior talent. The same path lies open to all. The ladder is hard to climb, wearying to the feet and blistering to the hands, bat it has been climbed, and there are many now in the mire and misery ot the bottom round, who. mimiiulliil of blis ers or weariness, w ill attain the highest before they die. There has been quite too much said in the papers 'ihout those swords ol Gen. Twiggs, lor which suit Has been brought against Gen. Butler, and yet it U remarkable that the main fact has been lo-t sight of. The ille gality of the seizure by Gen. Butler, and the appropriation of the swords by the United S ales, grows out of the fact that Gen Twiggs was not at the time of the seizure in the service of the Con federate Stares he was entirely disabled from service, and hisswonls and plate were not prize of war, and could not he appropriated by Gen. Cutler or the I'niteJ Slates, without a judgment, execu tion and sale, by a court and its otlicers having jurisdiction thereof. liut then, as be United States approved and benefited by thi and similar illegal acts of appropriation of pr.'vaU' property by Gen. Butler, the lat ter wili probably call the Government in 'warranty U delend his acts therein. X. O Times. A Personal Ahgcm&xt. Counselor R , one of the foremost advocates of the bar of Central New York, was himself a collegian, and was naturally anxious that his eldest son should reap tne honors of his own Alma Mater. The counselor had been quite wild in his early years, and Master Will manifestly inherited a superabundance of what the philosophers of the Josh Billings fchool would call -pure eussednesg." Dur ing his first year at college, il! was sus pended for some flagrant breach ot discipline and arriving at home, he proceeded to re port the occurrence to his father. ""Sus pended, hey ?" the old lawyer remarked, laying dowu the volume of Reports that he as perusing, ant, looking reprovingly t Will over his spectacles. "A pretty begin ning you've made of it, I declare !" The culprit put his hands in his pantaloons pockets and said not a word. "Well, air !"' continued the parent, becoming angry at Will perfect nonchalance, what have you to say about it ?'' '-.Nothing, sir." "Xoth ing, "indeed! What did the president tell you when he suspended you?'' "He said 1 was the worst young man the college had ever held with oue exception.'' "Ah! did he sav wuo that was?" "Yes, sir." "Ah!" (A slight- pause.) "And who was it?" "My father, ir." As may be supposed, the last reply was a perfect hoi teqttitur. Dress in the Sandwich Islands.

Who has not seen the man full of myste ries and secrets ? He always has something confidential to say to you some secret of great importance to hint about and talk roundabout and perhaps h will volunteer to reveal it to you, (only you. because it is important that you should know it!) But when he gets through and swears you to se crecy, you are as much puzzled to know what it is all about as you were before he burdened you with the precious secret. He begins mysteriously and ends mysteriously t and if you were not already familiar with hi characteristics, you. would fel yourself mysteriously enveloped In mystery. As it is, you feel a little dreamy and foggy, and unconsciously walk cautiously along till you meet something to divert your atten tion and restore you to yourself again. The sanity of the mysterious man admit of s good deal of doubt. However, be is usually harmless, and, aside from the fact bt bis belonging to the genus button-holder, may be quite rational and agreeable. Tbougu a character one feels like shunning, still he is an object rather of pity than of condem nation. Hence it la difficult to shake htm off, as we cannot bear to treat him unkindly ; so we gently avoid and evade him. while we wonder why it Is that Providence allow us to be annoyed br bis presence, and whut great and good nee he serves in the scale or animatsa creation, since not rung is made la vain. . s... ...... r Better's quartermaster, as was expecttd, upholds the action of the Beast. ,1 WEE H 2.

Pl'RCHASI.NG P.iL'LlKV FOR THE TABLE. correspondent of Moore's Kural New Yorker olFers a few words about purchas ing poultry for the holidays, and we coni- irend his remarks to those who are not good judges of poultry. He savs : "Fowls are kil led and prepared lor market with much adroitness and care by some d alers, and many devices practiced to catch the eye ot the unsophisticated purchaser-the best side u tne poultry beinsr shown to the greatest dvantajje. Every sort ot fowl is killed. plucked and put on market about Thanks- givirg time, and if the purchaser buys an in- lenor article at an exhorbitant price, he has only hiin-r if to blame for so doing.

An old hen turkey has rough scales on the legs, callosi ties on the soles or bottom of the teet; and long, strong claws, while a young turkey has the reserve of the niaiks.

Use of Lime in Aokici ltukk. The ac- tiou of lime is two-fold: tirst, physical, aud second, chemical. As a mechanical asreiit it opens still" clays, rendering tlu-m friable, mellow, and more easily uorked; chemical ly, it acts upon the vegetable matter of the sou ana sets iree uiose ilores or valuable ubstances vhk-h, w ithout the action of this agent, must have remained inert and useless. It also enters directly into the composition t plants, and in many varieties forms a large proportion of the weight f their inorganic constituents. It neutralizes certain acids which are often present iu soils, rendering them useful to vegetation, instead of being positively injurious, which they are iu their original state. The existence of water in the soil, however, affects the action ot lime very considerably. If the land is wet and untrained, lime w ill not exert tin same in fluence which it would do in the case ol thoroughly drained laud. A greater quan tity of lime is necessary to produce a given effect, and thus the neglect ot thorough drainage entails a considerable greater ex penditure in liming than would have been necessary, if the land was either miturally or artilieially dry. Cameron's Chemistry oi Agriculture. Wade Ilsimplun on Ihe 1' reed men. There is a State Fair noyv in progress at Macon, Ga., and it appears to be attended with considerable success. The agricultur al and labor interests of the State are large ly represented there, and they are not merely confined to Georgi i. but extend over all the Southern States. Many ot these fairs have been held of late, ai.d the effect has been generally pood, predicting a large y iin proved condition of the whole South, aud snowing the advance made in material pro gress since the disastrous times of the civil war. Gen. Hampton, who has Irequently exhibited his wise appreciation of the exist ing condition of things, and has given many 82iisijle ideas concerning the new relations between the North and the South, expressed himself w ith some force on the question ol treating the fretdmen for the mutual bene fit of that claes and of the Southern States hIso. He urged tlae necessity of cultivating a patriarchal aud friendly feeling with the colored treedmen and the improvement of their moral and intellectual status. This is what the South requires. The Southern people know that tne freed men are there among them ; that they are there by law es tablished, eitlier as an incubus to be carried on the shoulders of Southern industry, or an element to be employed lor iu benefit. W ade Hampton evidently sees the matter iu this light, and he advises his people well upon this subject. The South is gradual ly relieviiag ilsell from the effects of the late war, aud pvrhaps there are no means which it cau employ better calculated to assist the issue than the jud.cious ue of the negro el ment as suggested by Wade Hampton.

At dinner Mrs. Madison always took the head of the table; It r. Madison the mid'He. oid one of his secretaries the bottom. Her neniory was so good that she never forgot a name, and would address each of her guests, though just introduced w ith twenty tl:ers as if she had known them for years. She was a magnificent looking woman in the draing-rooin. Her stately and Juno like figure towered above the rest of the la lies. When she found a timid, young girl -he would attend to her most assiduously, onduct her to the piano, and remain with her till she became more at ber ease. At one of her receptions a tall, dangling youth fresh from the backwoods, made his appear tnce and took his stand against a partition wall. He stood in that position like a fix ture for half an hour, and finally ventured to take a cupol coffee, which it was then 'he custom to baud around. Mrs. Madison's keen eye had noticed his embarrassment, ind sh wished to relieve it. She walked up and addressed him. The poor youth, as 'ounded. dropped the saucer on the floor, md unconsciously thrust th cup into his breeches ocket, toThe crowd is so great,'' -emarked the gentle lady, that no one can -tvoid being jostled. The servant will bring vou another cup of coffee. Pray, how did vou leave your excellent mother? I had nee the honor of knowing her. but I have not seen her for some years.' Thus she con tinued, till the poor youth felt as if he were in the company of an old acquaintance. He took care, secretly and soon, to dislodge the protuberance in his pocket.

Journal of Agricul ture. From the Mexico (Mo.) Ledger, Xnv. 21. I'orsern .. rreisted M laadllnjf on H Ijargp Scule. On the fifth day of March lar. two men bv the respective names of Bently and Henley, purchased ot the "Mexico Xational Exchange Bsnk" in this city, three several d rafts. on th: Stat.es Saving Institution"' in st. Loui. One of these drifts was pid. and returned canceled in a few days. The oth ers were not heard from until a few days dnce. It seems that tn-se parties were ac complished forgers and swindlers. They made th-ir way to lexa. nsrensimy rortlie purpose of buying Texas cattle. Tt ey bore a letter ol introduction to a Mr. Billion II. Odom ot Austin in that State, from a gen tleman w nti w hom he was acquainted, and in w hom he confided. They represented to Mr. Odom, that they were there tor the pur pose of buying cattle extensively, that their funds were in drafts that they desired to cash, and at their request, be introduced them to banking concerns to wnicn tney -old checks to the amount of some fifteen thousand dollars. In due time it transpired that these drafts were bogus. The banks informed Mr Odom of the fact, who imme diately started iu pursuit of the scamps. He was fortunate enough to overtake and arrest 'hem, and recovered all the money of w hich thy had robbed the banks, except about $600. He found in their possession a lrge number of bogus checks, and among them the two checks of the Mexico Xational Ex change Bank. One of those checks was tor 930. which they bad raised to$ 5O0 and the other for $1750 raised to $3500. Bently, we learn, was a tall fine looking man. welt dressed, of graceful and easy manners, and evidently a man of culture and refinement. There plan seems to have been well digested and arranged, but through the vigilance of Mr. Odom, their grand speculation was suddenly brought to an ignominious and profitless termination. Oxlt a Cent In closing the accounts of the National Broadway Bank, of Xew York City, there was a mistake of one cent. A draft was drawn by Treasurer Spinner for the balance in the bank, amounting to $18. 450 10. which wa honored, and in the letter ol transmittal the bank Cashier notified the Treasury that there waa tlll 'ue the Gov ernment the cum of onecent. An examina tion of the ledger and cash accounts was Instituted and the error was discovered The amount should hve been $18,450 11. Forthwith Treasurer Spinner notified the Cashier that he could forward a draft for that amount. A press copy of the letter wa made and a proper record of it kept In due time the bank responded, enclosing a draft for one cent. Tb Cashier, tn trans mitting tbe draft, add that be U happy to say taut the transfer wa made without dis turbing financial circle. The letter and draft were received. - the neoavcary record made in ball a dozen books, the proper in dorsement obtained, and tne money drawn and deposited to the credit, of the proper fund. . .' ....,- Prine Humbert, of Italy. kp on low. ing his wild oat, tatanpened with aoj camber of nam.'
