An army correspondent of the J'.uffalo Kr press has made the following graphic sketch of the Maryland farmer, which is said to square with the experience of our ollicers : HIS I.MERAMTY. "When your camp is in the nejighbor- hood of his house he sends you presents of peaches, pies, aud worm-eaten apples lie cultivates your acquaintance and al lows his slaves to sell yon milk, and then in a little while he puts iu his bill for all his presents, and asks you a monstrous price; and when he charges you with gallons of milk where you had quarts, he coolly assumes that you shall pay for all ho sends by his negro, and not for the moiety which you receive. And then when you tell him to go where he is not due until he departs ibis life, ho comes down several pegs aud calls it a misun derstauding. HIS IIOSriTAI.ITV. "You ride up, hungry as a wolf, to his gate. 1 here is no tavern for miles. II informs vou with a princely and baroni al air, that ho has entertainod thousands and never took a picayune lrm any man; that no one was ever turned from his door, and says, '(ientlemen, won t you alight?' You go in, he gives you good coffee, greasy ham and water logged potatoes, (he is usually just out of but ter,) and when, like a northern mudsill you offer him pay, he says: "No sir; I can always givo a eiiilcinau a meal without pay; that s lor the women or niggers; 1 never take no pay myselt. Aud so you pay the women or niggers double price for a poor meal, and he takes the money away from tluni as quick as your back is turned. HOW UK I'KALS I.V KoltAiiK. "You pitch your camp in his neighbor hood, lie has a straw stack, half this tles and the rest weeds. You are in a hurry, and the quar'erniastcr is busy ; he wont sell anything, and you tako what you want, he suggesting that as the easiest course, and talking good na turedly while your men go oil' with the straw. The next day ho goes to I'alti inore, tills his own etory to (itncral Wool, and you get a reprimand for pi li ning. CoiiM-qiienee is, our Maryland farmer pels twenty dollars a ton for lour times as much straw as he ever had. This he thinks bitter for hiin th.iu hou est weight." Some atio!oer predicts that Dec. 2,'ith is the only Im.kv day for uiiir ryiiig this year. Mauiagcabht young pel sons h ill please make a botu of it. LATE NEWS. FonTPF.ss Monroe. Dec. 2. General Jones is in Richmond sick. There are but slight hopes of his recovery, A Conlcderate .States navy is now the leading idea among the rebel leaders of the South.

Lou. Journal, -lib. Large Deposit of Honey. A somewhat singular discovery was made in a house in St. Louis. The Argus gave the following account of tho story: Tho inmates of one of our largest up town mansion houses, a few days sirce, were surprised to lind a large number of bees flying about in two of the upper rooms. As tho liltlo fellows continued to occupy tho places, a beo naturalist was sent to investigate. On uttering the rooms, he exclaimed : "You have honey somewhere here," and proceeded to search for it. On removing the fire-boaid, he discovered that onu lluo of tho chimney was full of honey-comb, which was hanging down into I he fire-place, and tho honey dropping from it ; proceeding to the top of tho house to sound the chim ney, ho found it the same; one Hue of (ho chimney was full, and tin bees were in dustriously at work there also. These Hues of the chimney had never been used; they were plastered smooth inside, and v re. pi i lectly dark, a stono having been placed on the top of each Hue.
