Here ate letter from thousands of con cen con suiuueus men timing tlic last forty years. I see their faces as 1 lead their letters, and almost hear their accents as I ponder ever then- familiar calligraphy, ruatiirally enough, the first is the voluminous cor respondence of James Buchanan. There is mere than fifteen yca'rs of it, beginning almost with his aspirations for the presi dency, and closing vhen lie grasped the golden prize ; and yet new, as in the past, no line of his has ever been disclosed or will ever be disclosed by myself te his discredit. There is se much te his honor that may safely sea the light new, that 1 am sure such extracts as the following will be read with pleasure. I shall have further occassien te refer te this fountain of history, and I am sure a first glimpse into diplomatic society in England yi!l whet the general appetite for what is te come : Umtkii States l.iyi.vnex, Londen, t December 13, lSW. ' My Deak Sik : " Leng looked ler conic at last.' I have received your welcome letter en the 28th ultimo, and new feel the greatest anxiety le learn that you have been re-elected cieil:. I trust and believe we shall receive this gratifying intelli gence with the president's message en Monday next. My social position here will be, in fact is, all that I would have desired twenty years age when I was a younger man. Al though they say nobody is in town, I may dine out as often as I please at 8 o'clock iu the evening. Although they are jealous of us and experience a sort of undefined uneasiness at our rapid growth in com merce aud manufactures, yet, when an American minister mingle.'- among them, with any degree of tact and talent for con cen con 'versatieM, he cannot fail te find himself much at home. Ver my own part, I luive talked right out, with prudence but with freedom, as 1 would de at home. What is remarkable, 1 have net met any ether for eign minister at their tables, with tee ex ception of a dinner at Lord Palmerston's. When they speak te me of their friendship for our country, as they often de, and re fer te the mother and the daughter, I answer that their public journals, aud es pecially the Tiiiics,' never fail te give us "a rap ever the knuckles " when the occa sion offers, and that this is a strong evi dence of public opinion. On mere than one occasion Mrs. Stewc and her book en American Slttcry have become topics of conversation, and I find them mere reason able en this subject than Iliad anticipated. I have net yet met the Ditches.? of Suther land. They speak of the scven in Louden as wc speak of the season at Saratoga. TJiis , usually commences about "vaster, and ter inmates en the adjournment of Parliament in August. All the rest of the year it is net fashionable te be iu town, except for the members of thn cabinet and the ether officials. My Pecial relations may, and probably will, undergo a great change after the cmccn holds her first drawing room. They have talked se much about my costume, that I de no see hew it is possible for me te put en geld lace and embroidery. A court ratly asked me the ether day if our president (General Pierce) had net been a general'.' I replied certainly ; he had been a geed and brave general. "Well, then, said she, did he net wear the uniform at tached te his rank, and te distinguish him from ether inferior eiliecrs and privates. I answered of course he did. Well, then, she answered, why should net a foreign minister from your country de the same thing ; I gave her the reasons, which it is net necessary te repeat. I would send for Harriet (Miss Lane, new Mrs. Johnsten, of Baltimore) at once if I could feic-sec the issue of this affair. I would net care a button abiut being os tracized myself iu the immediate court cir cle, but should be very unwilling le place her iu this position. If I should pass through the mill unscathed in plain clothes I shall have te prcseut Americans at court in full court dress, because for them it is certain they will net relax the rule. James Buchanan. Mere than ouee I saw Mr. Buchanan's con it dress, which brcame his line form and striking face as if he had been born te the purple, The American ainiustcr al ways appears in an evening costume unless when the queen holds her court, when he dens the black silk stockings, low shoes with black buckles, an embroidered dress coat, a chapcau, and a black sword, the same that was worn by Mr. Buchanan. lliscnssiug the Paster. 41 It seems te me," the fat passenger re marked, "that the pastor had a great deal te de with business and politics in these days. It was the pastor who marshalled the men of Banford and their families, and settled Newark ; it was the pastor who drove the sharp bargains with the Indians and bought the land for a little money ; a few old clothes at ether times, and in some instances for the rum that cheers, but in toxicates. Xew-a-days the pastor doesn't interfere with these matters se much." "Ne," said the cress passenger, "he hasn't time. The church keeps him se busy he can't direct his Heck in their political and mercantile affairs. Twe ser mons every Sttuday, a lecture Wednesday evening, a prayer meeting Thursday even ing, church or covenant meeting Friday, missionary trustees, ceinmittec, aid so ciety, social circle, home mission, temper ance and ether meetings en the ether af ternoons and evenings of the week, pastor's meeting Monday morning, and then the Sunday school; and pastoral visits; and association work ; politics? If an active pastor gets time te find out who's nomin ated and when the election is, he thinks he has learned a great deal. "I knew a preacher," said the man en the weed box, "who is busier than that. He hardly gets home from his summer vacation before his fall and winter lecture season opens and he docs net have time even te attend te these ether things you enumerated." "Well," said the passenger with the sandy goatee, "why shouldn't the pastor take his old place as the political leader of his Heck? Didn't Moses lead his peo ple" " Yes," the tall, thin passenger said, but somehow history failed te assign Moses and Dc La Matyr seats iu the same row. Moses didn't stump the state for his positieni lie didn't seem te want it. Aud the preacher who gees te Congress new never seems te lead anybody. lie generally creeps upon the Greenback ticket and is led by the party that manipulates him mestwisely. It is true that De La Matyr isn't a fair sample of American pastors, because the best preachers in the country wouldn't leave their pulpits te be elected president and haven't the lightest ambi tion of stepping down into Congress. If the '-' Just then the brakemau came in and said Colonel Iugcrsell was en the train, and the subject of theology was hastily dropped, all the passengers pretending te be asleep. Reaming Rebert in Uaichejc. The Billing Passion. It was in 1842 a week-day appoint ment for a Methodist meeting at Autho Authe ny's Creek, Greenbrier county, Virginia. Urether J was te pi each. The larger game, bear, wolf, and even panther, were net uncommon thereabouts, auddcer were abundant. The preacher had some pulpit ability, and at times was impassion ed and eloquent. Though net young, he was unmarried, peculiar, aud seldom smiled. The congregation were mainly rude hunters and their rustic families; and the trusty rille, the faithful deg, tha picturesque limiting shirt, with ' brain tanned" moccasin, aud belt, and gleaming knife, were as sure te put iu their appear ance at "week day meeting" as the hun ter himself. The place of worship was at Father Perkins's double cabin, which had been built with as much reference te wor ship as te the comfort of his own family. This notable man of fourscore was quite distinguished for piety and his gifts both in prayer and as class leader, but net mere se than he had been for his supeiierity as a hunter. With him the ardor of the pas sien for the chase was unabated, though he was entirely disabled by the infirmities of age. The writer has, at the same sit ting, been entranced at narrations of the hazards of his hunter's life, and cditied by his deep, undoubted, child-like piety. It was a grand occasion for Brether J . With a crowded house, and Father P. in the Amen corner, and nothing te divert attention, unless it were the large number of rillcsaud guns, which as usual, were placed conveniently near against the fence of the yard, and outside the wall of the house itself. The opening service gave great premise of a ' geed meeting." Beth Brether J and Father Perkins were quite demonstrative iu their devotions. The congregation be came deeply inteicstcd. The preacher wanned with his subject, argument cul minated into poetic imagery, and the pathos and power of unstudied eloquence melted and overwhelmed the rude audi ence. But between the eloquent strains of the impassioned pi-nicher the trained cars of the- congregation detected the peculiar yelp of a well-known old hound. The sagacious brute was understood and. believed, and the congregation was electrified. Thia manifestation of intense interest invaded the rude pulpic aud reused Brether J te still higher strains, which were present ly interrupted by the thunder of the ap proach of a herd of deer closely pursued by the licet and faithful dogs. Simultan eously with the climax of the last burst of eloquence the entire congregation, pcll incll, broke for the deer. As the earnest preacher dropped his hands te the rude desk, with a comical tone of sadness and disappointment en his lips, and holy horror depicted en his face, with bitterness ofteiil he exclaimed : " Ii is no use '. It is no use '." Te which the piping voice of the iufinn and rheumatic old hunter and class leader responded, with great cariicstncss, "Yes, it is, Brether ,1 ; they'll catch 'cm certain sure." Editor's Bracer, in Harp ers Magazine for Becemher. Kxpulsieu from the Harden of JMcn. Old Judge Ciiistavus Swan, of Colum bus, Ohie, was a "character" of his day. One day a missionary called en him for a contribution. " New," said the judge, Til tell you what I'll de ; I will ask you a simple question in scripture, and if you will answer it correctly i will jrivc you twenty-five dollars ; if net, nothing." The clergyman brightened up at once and agreed te the preposition. "Well, new," said the judge, "can you tell mc why Ged drove Adam and Eve out of Paradise ?" "Certainly," said the clergyman, " that is a very simple question ; it was because they ate the forbidden fruit contrary te the command of Ged." "There," said the judge, "it is as I sup posed ; I have asked the question of a hundred dilfeicnt clergymen and never yet get the correct answer. I see you ai c no wiser than the rest. Yeu ought te give mc twenty-five dollars for being se ignor igner aut of the most important facts iu connec tion with the fall of man. But I will send you away with my simple blessing and the true answer te the question. If you will leek into your Bible, which you sccin te have read se carefully, you will sec it written : 'And the Lord Ged said, Beheld the man has become as one of us, te knew geed and evil ; and new, lest he put his hand and take also of the tree of life aud live forever, therefore the Lord Ged sent him forth from the garden of Eden te till tnc ground from which he was taken.' Think," added the judge, with a sly "twinkle iu his eye, " what a great mercy it was te drive them out, for suppose they had by some chance get held of the tree of life, and thus the race had been perpetu ated forever en this'carlh. Why, by this time we would have been piled mountains high upon each ether, and what an awful struggle there would have been for life and happiness." The clergyman departed a wiser if net a happier man. When I Titusvillc Herald, Hep, What has become of the premised biography of Thad. Stevens which Edward Mcl'lierseu was te write. The Old Com Com eoner's body has been meuldering iu the grave these many years ; Sumner, Chase and Seward have followed him te the tomb, and their memoirs were given te the coun try longajre. Stevens was equally illus trious. He was identified with public questions iu this commonwealth ; he was great in the forum; he was an Ajaxin' debate ; in Congress he had no peer for pitiless logic, dry humor and scathing sar casm. He had just the elements of life and the eccentricities that go te malec a character. Like Byren and Scott, he was deformed. He was a cynical old bachelor ; he had a colored woman for a housekeeper, if, indeed, she was nefcliis mistress ; he loved cards, and adored liberty. He be lieved iu hell, yet swore like a pirate. Uc was a champion of popular education, if net the father of the common school 'sys tem iu the commonwealth. He -was stern a- Cromwell, aud born ler revolutionary times. He was a geed Greek scholar : his nephew Thad was his darling, and much like him, but he was rusticated at Dart mouth .-college, which was the old man's almar mater, nis'last will showed net only his love, but his prudence also. If Thad would leave liquor alone, he was te inherit a fortune ; if net, net. The younger Thad made shipwreck f his life, aud the cstate gees te public charities. The old man's bones were laid in a cemetery, which is no respecter of persons, and where the slave could lie down with the master, the black with the white. Thad was one of the prophets of the Republican dispensa tien. The Uiraffe, as Seen bj Its Hunter. . " A little before the sun went down my driver remarked te me, ' I was just going te say, sir, that that old tree was a camcl camcl epard.' On looking where h pointed, I saw that the old tree was indeed a camelo camele pard, aud, en casting my eyes a little te thcri.-ht, I beheld a troop of them stand ing looking at us. their heads actually towering above the trees of the forest. "The giraffes steed looking at the wagons until I was within sixty yards of the'm, when, galloping round a thick bushy tree, under cover of which I had ridden, I suddenly beheld a sight, the most astounding that a sportsman's eye can encounter. Before me steed a troop of ten colossal giraffes, the majority of which were from seventeen te eighteen feet high. On beholding mc, they at once made off, twirling their long tails ever their backs, making a loud switching noise with them, and cautcred along at an easy pace. The sensations which I felt en this occasion were different from any thing that I had before experienced dur ing a long sporting career. My senses were se absorbed by the wondrous and beautiful sight before mc, that I rode along like cue entranced, aud felt inclined te dis believe that I was hunting living things of this world. The ground was firm aud fa vorable for riding. At every stride I gaiu cd upon the giraffes, aud after a short buiiit at a swinging gallop, I was iu the middle of them, and turned the finest cow eiil ei mc new "Once mere I brought her te a stand and dismounted from my horse. There we steed together, alone in the wild weed 1 gazed in wonder at her extreme beauty, while her soft, dark eye, with its silky fringe, looked down imploringly at mc, and I really felt a pang of sorrow, in this moment of triumph, for the bleed I was shedding. Ne pcu nor words can convey te a sportsman what it is te ride in the midst of a troop of gigantic giraffes : it must he experienced te be understood. They emitted a powerful perfume, which in the chase het in my face, reminding mc of the smell of a hive of heather honey in September." Five Years in Se. Africa by C'mitiing ! 'el. 1, p. 23. i)r. Cox's Eccentricities. The late Dr. S. II. Cox was world-noted for many eccentricities of matter and man ner. On one occasion, as moderator of a Presbyterian assembly, in the opening prayer he said f " O, Leitl Jescs Christ, Theu art the nc plus ultra of our desire, the sine tjttu non of our faith and the ultima thulc of our hope." In him it was easy, natural language, and excited no special remark. Anether story of him is repeated by Bishop Coxe as having once been told te-iiii!!, and which is se geed and se like his father's wit, that he thinks it is true. Seme one once asked the old doctor hew it happened that, out of his large family, half had left the Presbyterian church. "0!"'he replied, "it is a case of the ,the virgins of Scripture five were wise and iQ were Episcopalians !"
