JOHN WEBSTER. NASBY. The New Hampshire Election—The Preparations for a Procession Which did not take place. WASHINGTON, D. C., March 15, 1868. Probably the happiest party wich ever assembled in this wale of leers, wuz in the White House on the night uv tiie clekshnn in Xoo Ilaiupsheer. It wuz a gay and festive seen. Hilarity rained. 1 he president with a unwonted smile ou- to his face, his nose shinin with a super uateral brilliancy, his eyes sparklin with a lite that cood only come from a sole surcharged with joy and a skin tolerably full ov whiskey, walked up and down tlie room, rubbin his hands with glee that cood not bo repressed. "18 all prepared T asked Kandall, uv a humble lookin cuss that does a share uv his managin, (he wnz usually paid by Mrs. Cobb, but sense her untimely fail yoor in biznis, he is allowed the earnius uv one day in each month uv a whiskey inspector in Xoo York,) "is everything arranged ?" "It is your Egglency." (To these fel lers all the high oliieers are "Eggslencies." "Is the powder prokured lor one hun dred guns y" "It is yoor Eggslency." "is the rockets drawed from the Navy Department to be tired from the differ ent parts uv the city to show spontane ous eiithoosiaMii ?" "They is yoor Eggslency." "Ilev the Department clerks bin noti fied that it wood be well for em to glad ly fall into the percession wheu his Eggs lency the President is to be serenaded, ef they desire to keep their places ?" "1 bey liev." "Hev the transparencies biu painted with the proper inscriptions ' Did yoo see one inscribed 'Sinclair's lnnjurily 3,- OOq ! X oo llampsheer s protest agiu 1111- peuchment 1 r "Jhey hev, and 1 did. "Then," said Randall, "all is in readi ness, ine brass bauds 1 know are in wait- in. Stanberry writ the Presidents speech this moruiu, and he hez it tolerably well by heart, and the jullitk-ashen must go orf smooth and pleasant." At this moment the President ap proached : "Ha! sed he, "in one short hour Av sh- ington will be alive with joy, and the country will breathe tree. iN'oo Hainp- s iet-r hez spoken. In a hour we shel hev the glad intelligence that she hez bin t oo t t le eonstooshen ez I expound it that she hez rebooked Siiinner, and Ste vens, and W ade, ami sich, and sed in thunder tones to the impious wretches, who wood, in me, pnll down the piliers nv the government, 'stay yer fratnicidle hands.' The that overpowers me.. Let's take suiitlun." A half hour wuz spent in innocent hilarity. The President showed the the-, roughnis nv his reconversion to Dimocri- sy by takin hizzeu strate, with nothin in it, while tseward betrayed Ins orijin, and his eonsekeiit unreliability, by driukin some Kind uv a lite wine with no more body into it than wood be in watered ci der. "Confusion to Wade !" exclaimed the President, holding up his glass and watch in the beades rise to the surface with a pleased eye. roo llampsheer! sed Seward, "may Connecticut carry fora'rd the work she hez so gloriously begun. "Our Buses, sed Kandall, ".Long may we hold them." "Kentucky," 6ed I, "alius troo ; thoall other States may desert Dimocrisy, Ken tucky will be faithful mong the taithlis found. Her distilleries attest her stead fastness to her party obligashens." And in 6ucli toasts the 30 minutes wore away. A private sekretary entered. "A dispatch from A'oo llampsheer 1" "Ila!" said Randall, seezin it, "now tremble Ablishnisro ; quake Stevens for ver time is come I Exalt your horn. Dimocrisy for the reackshen is here !" lhe gentle ana trusllui secretary, opened it read a momeni, turned pale and fell a fainting on the floor. Seward glanced at it and gaspin "This is the end uv life " (wicli he nit enaea lor nis lasi words.) fell likewise prostrate. The Presi dent snatched it from Seward's hands and fainted across the rest uv em, and Wells seein the President faint, did it becoz the Presideut did, without readin Welles takes physic every time the President does. I snatched the dispatch and read it myself, ez followes : "lo the President: Its all up. i m dead duck. Harriinan is elected by about 3,000. The reacksheu got stuck m a notch uv the hue .Mountains. .Fray for us. "SINCLAIR.'' Utterin a stingin cuss at Dean and Burr, and them fellers who hed deceeved usiuto a beleef tLat Noo Hampshire wuz safe, I sot about biingin uv em to. The President wuz he longest a comin out uv the faint. Sadly they riz, one after riother, their deicckshun eontrastin with the hilarity uv a moment afore. Kingni a bell, Kantian sea to the clerk who aiisered it, ez follows : 'loo may inform the bands that it won t be necessary ior em to longer wait. The men attendin the artillery may.retire to tne onzums oi ineir iami flies, and those wantin to be formed into spontaneous processions may be dismiss ed. The President nas concluded not to be serenaded to-nite." . Jest tten a band wuz heerd approach- in. "Thunder !" sed Randall, "dare they play without orders." But we discovered that it was not the oftishal baud. A procession wnz soon passin afore the White Hodse heded by a trasparancy, onto which was a dead duck with a face wonderfully like his Eggslency's, aud the band bedind wuz a plavin ded marches and sich, with tnui- tled drums. Four times theso heartlis cusses passed up aud down afore the White House. "Is it not hidyns," sed the president. "Served you rite." sed I. "Yoo wood take matters iii your own hands yoo weed attempt the work uv a Statesman with the qualificashens uv a police court lawyer. Wretched man," sed 1 transfix in him with my piercenest gaze. "Why wood you attempt to eat fire whose mouth is only capable uv' Limbnrg cheese? With Grant at the head uv the armies, why did yoo attempt revo- loosheu ? hen yoo attempted to drive Stanton out, hedeirt yoo sence eiiurt to know that it made a direct lslioo atween voo and the Ablishnists from which they cood not escape, and that yoor death or theirn wuz inevitable loo made it necessary for em to slay yoo, and in trooth they have made a lively com meucement. Noo Hampshire is a fatal stab, impeechraent will toiler in 60 days, and then a long farewell to all our glory Good nile, your Eggsleucy, pleasant dreams. I ll to my chamber.

Practical Religion. From a Sermon on Rev. Mr. Frothingham, Pastor of the Unitarian Church at Buffalo. Whenoe, then, comes this recoil fron, taxes. From various causes ; some near, some remote. 1 suspect that one of the remote ones has far more power than most will allow. This is the very histo ry of the word "taxes." Its history has given the word an ill name. "Give a dog an ill name and hang him," the old saw says. Had the word "taxes" always stood for a noble, a beautiful thing, 1 know not why it should be less lovely than such words as "Right," "Duty," "Philantl.rophy," "Divine," "liberality," "l iety, "Z.eal" all Oi wlncn express what draw far more heavily on the pock et than taxes do ; yet they are held m honor and cherished with pride. lie who has expended thousands or millions in their service is held in honor ; is proud of it himself. But who s proud of his heavy tax bill, unless oue who will do anything for ostentation ; who honors or congratulates him on account of it i And yet the heavy tax payer who honorably renders every dollar due, does a service as real and needful, one as worthy of con gratulation and honor, as he whe fouuds a hospital or an asylum. I shall not insult your moral senses by pausing to characterize the arts by which the revenue is defrauded aud enormous sums diverted from the public treasury into private pockets. 1 do not wish to harshly blame those who no such things, knowing as I do how general is the old world notion of taxes, and how rare the true American nation, even here. I would rather turn to ourselves and ask wheth er these be not debts of houor as truly any other debts ; and whether, therefore, too often packing a trunk so that the customs officer shall not see its dutiable contents: or to wear a set of furs or new clothing, bought in Canada, to escape paying the proper duty, is not as really a violation of honor as to tier $80 in payment for $100. Through our agents we have established the tax and voted that is promised to paj it. Is it decent, not to say right, to break a right prom ise? Is not every dollar withheld from the country by such methods due her still ; nay, is it not due our own self re spect to pay it ? It is a poor evasion to say that it is the revenue afficer's busi ness to see we do not defraud. It is rath er our business to see mat u wt"r and collects the just taxes. He does it as our agent, not, as under a tyrrany, as our oppressor. Is it tire sge.u' business to!aet as a police over his employer. lo find out if we have cheated is rather the detective's business, and a detective im plies crime and a CTiminaL The report of special CommiKner Wells on the Internal Revene indicates that the department for the past fiscal year was defrauded to the extent of near ly one-third in the articles of whisky, to bacco, and cord oil alone perhaps a hun dred .millions of dollars ; and fur less dis honesty in regard to customs, and income taxes would increase the amount of fraud at least one half the amount of the reve nue.

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF "THE HAPPY COUHLE. BY A DISTANT RELATIVE. From the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser. . - A great many years ago long before it had entered into the miud of man to build the Tower of Babel, or lo lay out the city of Buffalo, or to do many other loolish andtviuked things there dwell in a distant la&I a genuemau called Ad am, whose surname was First Man, who became enamored f a beautiful young adv known as Eve B G tilled. His at tentions appeared to have been accepted and reciprocated by the young lady, and she became convinced that he was " the onlv man whom she could ever love, if we may judge by the following loram mentions which she made to John Mil ton, who followed the rather singular vo cation of advertising things " lost and found" upon her Father's estate. "Con firmed then I resolve Adam shall sbare with mo in bliss or woe : so dear I love him, that with him ail deaths i could en dure, without him live no lite." Ibis beinj equivalent to the modest declaration that the lady is willing1 that her lover should bemii to " pay her board," arrangements were immediately made to have the union consummated, and, in the absence of any fficiar clergy man, the ceremony was preformed in the most siraplo and unostentatious manner, in the beautiful garden of Eden. The auspicious moment having arrived, the groom took the while ana nine Dann or las bride, unadorned even oy a - piain gold ring," and, affectionately imprinting. upon it a kiss, reverently, said : .mis is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh, therefore "shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave unto Ins wife, and they shall be one flesli...-:Jo cards. Thus was ioiued in the noiy bonds of wedlock the first couple oi whieh we have any knowledge. There. was no "rotund, spectacled . latfier-iH. law, no interested nioiner-iu-iaw, witn her leirendary smelling-bottle, -and no dear unmarried auut, preseui. f Nor was the ubiquitous - Jenkins' there to "wriu up the - attaii:,'. so tne. readers of the Daily Ante-Diluvian could not take in, with their coffee and cakes next morning, a detailed account of what was dene, and sid,' sndr worn, .at the wedding, much to the regret, doubtless, of the jolly Post .Dfluvians. But Jen kins, had he; been there, . would have found it difficnltto get, -up a : sensation article, tor there was an entire absence of ail olst -usive display and reckless ex travagance upon the occasion, refreshing to coutemp'late. The outfit of the groom Was plain and simple, prehaps the most noticeable thing about it being' the ab sence of the " dress coat," prescribed for such occasions by our best society.' a lie Dnaai costume was marked by per fect simplicity and the absence of all ex pensive and extravagant adornment There must have been something very becoming in this costume, as certain la dies, in fashionable, life, at the present day, imitate it as closely as possible, when in "full dress." ' Dispensing with the practice, now so prevalent, of indulging in a wedding lour, aud not caring to publicly proclaim themselves as newly married . by the occupancy of the Bridal Chambers iu the hotels and. on steamboats, the . happy couple settled. quitely down to the joys and cares of married life id the Garden of Eden, and iwere noted for their plain and unpretending manner of liviug. Theykept.no carriage, hired no. .opera box, gave no costly -entertainments,. bnt contented themselves with the simple, inexpensives, and satisfactory pleasures and enjoyments incident to the ei renin stances and snrrouudings. Adam av.-m a good husband, he spent his evenings (aud a good many of his days) at home tie bad no business engagements 'Mowu street" after dark, nor did lie belong to a club. He spent his evenings at home with his wife, whom ' he never humili ated by coming home late o' nights with a " brick in his hat" and a very ambi guous dialect. He did not even "color a meerschaum," but retained in Ids cheeks the color which else had : trans mitted in deeper hue to the , - bowl of sx bipe.. :JIis u-p was undisturbed by the effects of dissipation or, the nightmares of the stock market ; hence was calm, and refreshing.

Aiiltou testifies ahut " grace, was in alt her steps, heaven iu her eye, in ev ery gesture dignity aud love." She de served, if any of her sex ever did, tlie credit for caring little for the . blandish-. meuts of dress. Her tastes ' and habits were eminently domestic, and for her in truth there was no place like homo. Her amusements were ft w ; be cared little for opera or ball, but she probably attended tne matinees of Nature's songs ters in the open air, where usher, prog ramme, and reserved seats were unknown aud it is not unlikely that she frequently accompanied Adam to see the menagerie, or collection of animals, in the ganU;, Wc kuow that Adam went, for Scripture tells us that upon one occasion ho called the animals names.

Oakes Smith re lates a story of a woman proposing to the wrong man, reminds me of an occur: renco that happened here 6ome twenty years since. A distinguished professor and divine from thiB neighborhood wa on a . visit to some friends east of the mountains, and was introduced to a very resectable family which had two accom plished daughters one of tbem very handsome, the other rather plain. After spending some weeks in the neighbor hood, and having frequent opportuni ties of meeting the ladies, he become enamored with the younger and prettier of the sisters. He however, returned home without show ing ' any preference. He was a man of very sedate and studi ous habits, and soou became absorbed iu his bouks, aud for a time he seemed to forget his new acquaintances.' But the image of one of them seemed to be con stantly before his mind.' Alter having maturely considered the matter he con eluded to commence a correspondence with the object of his affection. Unfor tunately, or fortunately, as ho afterwards stated, he addressed the wrong lady- He had eot the name transposed i i correspondence finally led lo an engage ment. Ibe day ,was n-vcii iur, me neu ding, and the grave and revenied D. D. enlcrred his appearance at the proper time . But what was his consternation to find he was going, to uiarrjr a lady he h.-id not courted. Bat being a sensible and au honorable man. he said nothing about it believing the hand of provi dence was in the, matter, and was actual ly married,' to. the sister of the girl b thought be bad bad won. . -Mine wore on ; she proved to be a most amiatuc, in telligent and affectionate w ife, lie nev er told the story until after the. younger sister was hapily married, lie never had reason to repent the mistake, and he to this day is firm iu the belief that God so ordered it for his happiness. , , in has Pittsburg Chronicle. .
