fcelisheo bt JOHN CATlWrlrT" THURSDAY IAY 12, 1873 How the World lVas. Tl;c I'at'OKS cl Husbandry in AUhama . number TOO granges, dth 29,000 mem bers. True bills bare been found against ovcra bcnJrcd members of Atlanta, Georgia, eo cicty for private gambling. The cattle trade of Texas is extending so rapidly that thcpr&ctice of killing for bides and tallow, it h thought, will soon be aban doned. The Chinese government have applied through tbe regular diplomatic channel for admission into the English navy of a num ber of Chinese cadetf. The war between the railroad lwrtwtcn Cincinnati and St. Louis having ended, the fare between those eities his lcen advanced from one I'ollar to nine dollars and fifty cents. It is estimated that thereare in the world steam engines aggregating the power of 14,400,000 horsey of which the United States owns one-third of the engines, or 4, 00,000 horses power. ' A copy of President Andrew Jackson' proclamation on the nullification act of Bouth-Carolina in 1831, ncatlv printed on fine heavy Bilk, was found recently among a quantity of old papers in a New Haven junk-box. The big clock and bell which will strike the dinner hour from the belfry of Indepen dence Hallon July 4, 1870, cost $20,000, and are inscribed with the words : "Presented to the City of Philadelphia for the belfry of Independence Hall, in the names of Adam and ilariah Sarah Sejbert, and Carolina, their daughter, by their son and brother. Henry Scjbert." Sir. Eeechcr, ia his sermon last Sunday, gave notice that one hundred new converts would join his church on the next Sabbath. He said that he would not have mentioned this except in praise of the Divine Master, and us an indication that through His fatherly care current events instead of driving off those desirous of coming in, bad eanctilied and strengthened the church. Ex-Governor Horatio Seymour is reported as having expressed the opinion that the Democratic nomination for the Presidency will hardly go outside a group of four gen tlemenSamuel J. Tildcn, Sanford E. Church, Thos. II. Henricks and Allen O. Thurman. Warm and intimate personal friend as ho is of Governor Tildcn's, he is not able to say whether that gentleman wants the nomination or not. ' Some time ago four ladies who passed the London University examination for women entered themselves into the chambers of well known barristers for the nurnoso of studying law. It was said at the time that their labor would be fruitless. It seems, however, that the ladies aro likely, as the result of their studies, to obtain profitable employment. One of them, whose term of study is closed, has been engsged by a firm of solicitors as a "consulting counsel." . At present there is a rage in England for old china, and the most extravagant prices are paid for a vase or an antique set. At a recent sale in London a set of three vases, seven and a half inches high, fetched f COO, and a pair of deep blue vases, with.SVatteau figures, tbreo and a half inches high, a few dollars more. A tiny Britannia enamel patch box, bearing a miniature of Peg Wof rington, sold for $70, two small vases in Chelsea ware 1000, and so on. At a pre vious sale a lord gave $35,000 for two vases of Sevres china, while a particularly fine set brought $30,000. The U nion Tabernacle congregation, coci poscd of a membership embracing those who have become dissatisfied with sects and denominations based on defined creeds, in stalled their pastor, ttev. S. Miller Hage man, formerly a Presbyterian minister, in their place of worship, at' Apollo Hall, in Fifth street, Brooklyn, New York, on Mon day evening. The pastor was installed bv Mr. Ives, one of the trustees, extending to lum the right hand of fellowship, "on the basis of Christianity, without bond of creed or sect except that which makes us one in C hriat Jesus," and pledging the co-opera nun oi me congregation in tue work in which they were mutually engaged. Of the coming marriage of Miss Greeley, a ISew lork letter says: "Tbe latest in social circles is the engagement of Miss Ida Greeley, daughter of the famous printer and statesman, to vol. mcnolaa Smith. Col. froiitn graduated with high honors from Iiufus Choate'a class at Cambridge, and is a promising young lawyer. In appearance ho greatly resembles Edwin Booth, and is of ten taken for that gentleman. One night cmcrcu a uox at me tueatrc, wnen he was immediately the object of all eyes. There is Edwin Booth.' thevall exclaimed. as they levelled their opera-glasses at what they supposed was the great actor. He was born at Shelbyville, Kentucky, where he spent his early ynars. He is now a resident of Leavenworth, Kansas. During the war no took grounds agninst slavery. He did not oppose it alone bv words, but. n an .r. ample ho freed all his slaves and paid their iru vo Kansas, jiias iua ureeler, accom panied by her sister Gabrielle and her aunt and cousins, tho Clevelands, will start for a i-uropcan lour about tho first of May.

In December, 1SCC, I met the celebrated Charles Carroll, of Carrollton. The Par tridge cadets wero passing through Bald isore pa their march from Middleton, Con necticut, to Washington City, when we were t,rawn up in lino before the door of "the la.-t signer of tho Declaration of Indepen dence.'' "These are my pupils," said Capt. Partridge. "And in them," replied Mr. tm!I, goo the defenders of my coun try." Ha was a little, old man, dressed in a brown surtout and appeared to be quito active for a person cf his age. Oa our arrival at Washington, wo were rsiarched to tho White House and introduce-.! t the President, John Quincy Ad uu3. Ho received ws ia tto parlor, and was Tery tjuict and sedate, ami no one COU..1 have imagined that he would subse quently f ash forth, in 1S44, as the most acnmouiou.i member of tlic 11,m f rc?entativcs.

He was the mast TvnuUT i.tos. his ccltbrad proclamation against tic South Carolina nuliificrs. Davs made a peech denouncing and ridiculing him, sav ing among other sarcastic remarks: "If the old gentleman must be amused, let us give him a te-to-tcm." The remarks en rsged Jackson, who said, "I will make a te-to-tum of his d 1 traitorous head." I once heard Gen. Itobert O. Hayne say, in 18S2, "that Jackson had recently written a letter to Calhoun this was after their quarrel and said that, as lie was preparing facts for history, Tic would request him to answer the scries of interrogatories enclosed with the letter. . "If any man foamed with rage," said Hayne, "it was Jackson when he received Calhoun's reply. It was so scathing and contemptuous." By the .way, the two fools, Partoa and Bancroft, have in their "Lives of Jackson." that h . North Carolinian, when Jackson himself oj in m tuuciamauon mat ne was a na tive of South Carolina, This statement will be found near the conclusion of that cclc- uratca aocument. Tbe inscription on the monument of Jack son at the Place D'Armes, in New Orleans, lausincauoa uy JJcast Butler. At the dinner given in Washington City on Jeffer son't biithday, in 1832, Jackson sent as a toast, .'The I cdcral Union, it mast be rre served." This was changed by the vulgar uiacKguaru to "ine rederal Unien, it must and shall be preserved." Gen. Jackson's famous letter announcing the victory of the "eighth of January" was written, it is said, by Col. Arthur Hajne; ami his proclamation of 1833, which did so much injury, was attributed to the pen of Edward Livingston. The recent death of the Irish patriot, John Mitch cl, remind mc that bis son was a captain In the Confederate army, and commanded at Fort Sumter, when the "boys in gray" beat oil the Federal troops with brick-bats. In the year 1820, I met the celebrated JohnlUndolphof Hoanoke. He was stand ing near a stove, on a steamboat, dressed in a white box coat, and took no more notice of the company around him than if it. was composed of blocks of wood. He was tall and thin, and had the most supercilious manner of any man that I have ever seen. In the year 171)9 he ran a race on the Wash ington Jtaco Course, at Charleston, with Sir John Nesbitb, each riding his own horse. Kandolph won the race. lien ntrCnlloch The Tcmjxranee Watcliman says: Never 6hall wc forget when first we saw his manly form and fr. He was then known to fame; and how great was our youthful dis appointment, when he was pointed out by one of his ardent friends, and we received an introduction to him so plain and un assuming. He was then a candidate for shcrill of Sacramento count r, California, in the spring of 1830. We had seen his hand bills before tho miners assembled at tho store of the bar, on which we worked on the Ilio Do Los Americanos to hear the speeches of the candidates for the Legisla ture and for sheriff. There were sixteen candidates for sheriff, notwithstanding the late sncnll had been killed m attempting an arrest. McCulloth's friend struck his handbills, which ran thus; "Major Ben McCulloch ; the Peorle's candidate fcr Sheriff; Captain of th Texas Rangers; the Border Chiertain ; tho Mier Spy ; the Hero of many hard fought battles, etc., etc., will address the people at Negro Bar, Mormon Island." The day of the speaking arrived and we were eager only to see the mighty Texan. His principal opponent was a gam bler with much money, who hired a Col. K. . . . to canvass for him who also prom ised to notice Ben favorably. He was a fine orator and extolled his candidate almost to the skits. We wero standing by the side of Ben, and he said to us: "The d d old scoundrel promised to put in a good word for me too; and if he don't doit, by G d I'll make him." The Colonel never spoke of Major McCulloch, and was returning from the speaker's stand, when Ben said to him: "Colonel, recollect your promise to me." He dared not go back on Ben, but stepped back and pronounced a glorious eulogy on the hero of Texas. Ben nodded his thanks to the Colonel. " At lust came Ben's turn to address the crowd. This was not his call ing. Ho was much embarrassed, but as cended the stand and said "Gentlemen. I am no speaker, but have merely come around to let you take a look at the nags, and see which will lo to bet on. Though tho last one on the track, he was a candi date only tbreo days before I expect to win the race. I am obliged to you, gentle men." The whole crowd shouted, "Hurrah for Ben McCulloch!" Soon the speaking came to a close; and thetraverns and bars were free for all the crowd, and we were all urged to eat and drink. But a crowd of us lingered long around Ben, intending to eat and drink at tho expenses of the man we in tended to vote for; 'whilst hundreds were getting glorious over tho whisky of the other candidates; and the drunker they got tho louder were the cries for McCulloch. Ben saw tho surroundings of his friends; divined our intentions to cat and drink with him, and said : "Gentlemen, I ought to ask you all to supper and to take a drink; but I tell you what's the fact, I've got no money and can't." We then took him in charge and liquored ; then went to supper with him. Took care of his mule and six shooter, aad carried him with us home to camp. Next morning was Sunday. We all went to electioneering for McCulloch. No other man was thought of. His opponents said he stood no show ; but Ben said, "Pll be d d if I don't be elected!" The election came and he won the contest by one vote; and held the second moneyed position at that time ia California. Jack llsvs was sheriff of San Francisco, and Ben McCulloch of Sacramento. After the election we received a letter from Ben; which "wound up by saying: "ir the time should ever come when you shall need a friend; I'll not be wanting." But we have survived he has fallen. His career was brief but glorious. We came Home - on our convalescence. It was our last meet. This part of his prophecy -was true. Through life, however, we were j warmly remembered. We loved that man. no was aoove money or want. A princu princes, io mm money naa no value, and, naturally, he outranked all ma- kind. e hope Texas shall one day do kin justice; and a proud monument will be erected to him, whoso deed?, however, will be more lasting than marble. .
