Wheat Going West.
[From the Albany Evening Journal
Wheat l.as already reached this
city from Now York and it will go
farther west aa soon as it can be
forwarded. A number of cargoes
have been recoiyed from California
by way of Liverpool and large
quantities are going west from Buf
falo
This anomalous fact ia the result
of the excessive shipments from the
west last autumn, stimulated by the
high prices of that period. It has
been aggravated, also, by the im
mense quantities of wheat injured
sincc the close of navigation at
several of the large western depots,
and by the additional fact that the
excessively wet weather, during
last September, groatly curtailed
the breadth of lind usually devoted
to the culture of winter wheat in
several of the vast wheat regions of
the west.
This "back action" of trade,
however, will be only to a very
limited extent, and for a very brief
period. It is the concurrent testi
mony of every one who has visited
the west within the past fortnight,
that the winter wheat never looked
more promising, and that the de
ficiency in the fall sowing has been
much more than made up this spring,
lu some parts of Michigan, where
"spring wheat" is seldom seen, it
will this year constitute more than
one half tho crop.
Besides, the snowy winter and
the cold backward spring, have been
juiit what was needed to put tho
wheat fields in the best possible
condition.
Tact and Talent.
Talent is something, but tact is
everything. Talent is serious, sob
er^ grave, and respectable tact is
all that, and more too. It is not a
seventh sense, but it is the life of
all the five. It is the open eye,
the quick ear, the judging taste,
the keen smell, and the lively touch
it is the interpreter of all riddles—
the surmouutcr of all difficulties—
the remover of all obstacle?. It is
useful in all places, and at all tiifles
it is useful in solitude, for it show
a man his way into the world it is
ufeful in society, for it shows him
his way through the world. Talent
IA power—tact is SKUI talent i:
weight—taet is momentum tuhnt
knows what to do—tact knows how
to do it: talent makes a man re
spectable—tact will make him re
spected talent is wealth^—taet is
ready money. For all the practical
purposes of life tact carries it
against talent—tut to one.
A Sister's Influence.
"That man has grown among kind
and affectionate sisters," I once
heard a lady of much observation
aud experience remark. "And win
do you think so V" said 1. "Be
cause of the rich development of all
the tenderer feelings of the heart,
which are so apparent iu every word."
A sister's influence is felt, even in
manhood's later years and the
heart of him who has grown cold
with its chilling lontaet with the
world will wanu and thrill with
puro enjoyment,, as some ineidcut
awakes within hitn tha soft tones
and glad melodic." of his lister's
voice. And ha will turn from pur
poses which a warped and false
philosophy has reasoned into ex
pediency, and weep fr the gentler
influence which moved him in his
earlier years.
Conofer and Ashley.
It is stated in a "Washington jour
nal that Conover, who is now con
fined in jail in that city instead of
serving out the ten years' imprison
ment at Albany, to which he was
sentenced, holds a daily levee for
the opponents of the President., and
receives long an confidential visits
from James M. Ashley, of Ohio, the
principal iinpeacher and inccndiary,
who hopes to ignite the Potomac.
Conovor has also been placed in
comfortable quarters, and furnished
with abundant writing materials.
It is suggested that Ashley and
Company are preparing him as a
leading witness in the impeachment
business but why not summon Unit
as a witness also, or more appropri
ately, as a tutor to Conover?-Cleve
land Plain Dealer.
Irrefragable Proof.
A Pheladclphia gentleman of fes
tive tastes, who took a "fair shake"
at all the obtuinablc pleasures of
the town, last week assisted at a
heavy dinner, took much potable,
and did not leave for homo until
ever-so-many o'clock. On reaching
his door steps and fishing up his night
key, he become satisfied that he was
essentially convivialized, and not
precisely in that condition which a
good husband should be to meet a
go6d wife. Cautiously entering the
hall he stopped, listened a moment,
heard
110
noise, congratulated him­
self that the family were asleep.—
Quietly he took off overcoat, drew
off boots, turned off hall light, slow
ly ascended stairs to family bed
room, hesitated at door, believed be
was reasonably right, stealthily
entered, found tho gas low, wife ap
parently asleep, thought she was
asleep, sat down, listened again, no
stir began to undress got coat,
vest, pants, drawers, stockings all
safely off was journeying carefully
toward couch wheu wife of his bosam
quietly a*ked:
"Cycling to bed, doarV"
"Yea, lovo."
"Well, dear, hadn't you better
take off your hat?"
RADICAL AKKlVKRtABT BEET
1KG«
The thirty-fourth anniversary of
the American Anti Slavery Society
was b«ld in New York on Tuesday.
The attendance was large. Wendell
Phillips, who presided, was the chief
speaker. Resolutions were adopted
that the nation owes to its self-re
spect, to justice, to the future secu
rity and the present safety of the
colored race, to impeach and remove
the traitor of the White House at
once. Every hour that Congress
delays that action, insults the na
tion, disgraces its laws, jeopardizes
its future, delays justice, and makes
more and more the innocent blood
cry to God to help us that we urge
on all the friends of freedom to keep
vigilant arid ceaseless watch on the
Supreme Court, and the present ef
fort of the rebels to make use of it
in order to block the wheels of the
Government that a large measure
of confiscation and the divitiou of
confiscated land among the negroes,
is an act of justice to them, aud tho
former rebel owner of the land, and
will bo a security to his other rights
and to the nation itself. Adjourned.
THE COST 0? CARRYING ON A
WAR.—The money and material ex
pended in carrying on a war, is a
dead loss to the world. The whole
thing tends to destruction—loss of
material and the loss of life. The
quantity of war material used in the
late rebellion by the union army
was cnoi 111 ous—almost beyond be
lief. There were, fur instance,
about eight thousand cannons and
eleven thousand gun carriages utter
ly used up in the course of the war.
Of iron projectiles, iu the shape of
shot and shell, the quantity used
was about 7,000,000 1L:?. weight
wniie rue amount of lead consumed
is set down in official reports at 00.
000,000 pounds. The consumption
of gunpowder was 20,000,000 pounds
Of muskets, rifles, and otbor small
arms no less than 3,400,000 were
destroyed or rendered useless in the
service while over 2,000,000 sets
of complete aceouteiniciits di,- appear
cd in the same way. Besides the
bulk of the gunpowder above men
tioned, about a thousand million
cartridges were consumed, and a
larger number of percussion caps.—
Theeo are but a few items in the
total expenses of conducting a large
war, and are estimates of the north
ern army only.
Tho purposes of Radicalism lo
concentrate all the power of Govern
ment in the hands of Congress is
being openly avowed. The follow
ing iivi.i that "loyal" sheet, the
Chicago Post, of a late datu speaks
for itself, and proves mo3t satisfac
torily that tho Constitution, and
Supreme Court, and the President,
are merely iblbalis iu the path of
iliuii'ja]!
1.1.
AT ER
FATOR. #t 50 PER ANNUM
The Post says:
The Judiciary Committee of the
House in whose hands rests the pros
ecution of the impeachment ques
tion, met yesterday in Washington.
We predict that the earnestness of
their investigation will depend much
011 the result of the injunction ques
tion now pending in the Supreme
Court. It remains with the Presi
dent and the Supremo Court to de
termine whether they will respect
tho law, or invite congress to step in
and relieve them both of their func
tions. All Congress desires is that,
the laws which they make shall be
enforced. One President is as good
as another but one who WILL do it
they will be sure to have.
INTEREST ON U. S. BONDS.—The
semi-annual interest on tho 5-20
bonds (mostly paid out in New York
and Philadelphia,) will require
about $24,000,000 in coin. On the
15th of Juno the interest on the
second series of the 7-30 bonds be
comes due, which is payable in cur
rcncy. On the 1st of July tho in
terest (payable in coin) on the loans
of 184s, *1800, lfeGl, and 1SC3,
Oregon war debt and the consolida
ted 5-20s of 1865 become due, an
about $18,000,000 will bo required
to pay the same.
The New Orleans Times, Crcscent
and Picayune have, it is reported,
received an admonition from Gen.
Sheridan not to indulge in denun
ciations of the Reconstruction law.
La Liberte and other French jour
nals often receive admonitions from
the Emperor Napoleon not to in
dulge in denuueiations of his gov
ernment or policy. What a striking
resemblance among despots tho
world ove».
Looking at the Bright Side.
Here is a letter from a wife in
Massachusetts to her husband in
California. She don't intend going
through tho world with the blues
"MY DEAR HUSBAND—As it is
now some time since you loft for
California, I suppose you would be
glad to Lear how we arc getting
along in your absence. I am happy
to Bay wo arc enjoying very good
health on the wbtde. Just at pre
sent two of the boys have got tho
small pox Amanda Jaoe has got
the typhus fcaver Samuel got
hooked by a coj» the other day, and
little Peter has just chopped cfl
three of his fingers with a hatohct.
It is a mercy he didn't chop them
all off. With these trifling excep
tions, we aro all well aud getting
along nicely.
"You needn't be at all anxious
about us. I almost forgot to say
that Matilda eloped last wock with
a tin pedlar. Poor girl She has
been waiting for a chancc, and I'm
glad she's married at last. She
needn't have taken the trouble to
elope though, for I'm sure I was
glad euough to have her go. She
was a great eater, and I find baked
beans don't go off near so fast as
they did. The way the girl could
dip into pork and beans was a cau
tion to tho rest of the family. The
oow took it into her head to run
away, which was very fortunate I
am sure, for the barn caught fire
last night and was consumed. I was
in hopes the house would go too, for
it's inconvenient but the wind was
the wrong way, so it did not receive
much injury. Some boys broke into
the orchard the other day and strip
ped all the fruit trees. I am very
glad of it, for if they hadn't, I pre
sume the children would have made

will be broken not in worldly pleas
ures—it will be gone not in worldly
connections—they cannot serve you
not in rank—in the grave there is
no distinction not in tho recollec
ollections of a life spent in giddy
conformity to the silly fashions of a
thoughtless and wicked world but
trust in a life spent soberly, right
eously and wisely, iu tho present
