Butler's measure to pay the pensioner-, monthly through the money- order system oi the Postotnce Depart - menl meets wiin me opposiuuu ui a host of sharpers who have been in the habit of charging extortionate fees for preparing pension papers. It is said the plan of Buiier will deprive these worse than sharks of $100,000 annually in the city of New York alone. THE TBIBVNE LYING AGAIN. The Washington Chronicle (itself not very reliable) of Wednesday ave: Tile statement sent from this city to the New York Tribune, and published in that paper of yesterday, imputing c&rtain views and purpose on the Cuban question to the Presi dent, Mr. Fish, Secretary of State, and Senator Sumner, fa in all its assertions and inferences utterly without Ibuoda tioa. THE DARIEN CANAL. The President will submit to Con- gress on reassembling a special mes- sage on the Daneu snip uinai matter, accompanied by some important doc uments regarding operations under the treaty, the purport ot which is not known in detail, but, it is believed, re ler to some hitch in the proposed en terprise.

It is not unlikely, in view ot tne met that the insurants hold the Red River countrv, thatfthe British authorities will attempt to send troops over American soil to sub due them. COTTON AND TOBACCO. The Commissioner of Agriculture, in his annual re;rt, says the drouth on the Atlantic coast was less injuri- i ous to cotton than to corn. Every where the average planted was greater thin last year, but the product er acre on the sea coast was materially j less. The relative projo-tion of lint A seed from this cause was less than i 118'. Reports of three hundred i pounds of lint per acre, where good culture followed a carclul selection of seed, fa not unfrequent. Picking commenced earlier than usual, ami the late bolls ripened more thorough ly. The season for picking has been uniformly favorable, with com para- : tive freedom from trash and dirt, i And of tobacco he says : The latest re-1 turns indicate a reduction of one-third i in the production of V'njinia and Maryland; oue-sixth in Kentucky; 1 xt&pn ner cent, in Michigan, with a ght decrease in Indiana and illi nois. A lair summary indicates an aggregate reduction of twenty per sent, in production quality variable. VIRGINIA. A Radical correspondent says that during the recess ot Congress the statu- of Virginia in the Union is be ing discussed with much warmth on all fides, and by the time Congress reaassembles the various ideas will have b.-en matured, and the subject can be considered intelligently. It is the opinion ot many prominent Re publicans, including Jude Under wood, that the State should bo ad mitted; and, while they are not wholly satisfied, they believe that confidence would le restored in a great measure by the restoration of the 3'ate.

It is believed that the proper committee in both Houses are in favor of requiring the taking of the teal oath by the Cajfa lature, tinder the XlVih Auiyiid ment, audit is thought that thiscouts, would deprive the Legislature of a quorum.

A Banker s Romar1ce---Love Stronger Thaa Afibltlea. More than thirty years ago, in the far-famed school of that prince of teachers, John Kingsbury, was one of thetairsi of all the lair daughters ot Providence, celebrated far and nigh, as that city has ever len, tor its lovt Iv girls. "Her school education iln ished, she went to Europe, not, how ever, before having given her youth ful mlVM-tions to a vount: man whom hp h:iil met in a sister city. Uut li. fore marriage had consummated their happiness, wtversny came upon mm, j Mini In- found himseli in no sitUHtion to marry. He was not willing she should waste her youth and glorious beauty in waiting through long years for the dav to come when he could call her his own, so he released her horn her ovs, and they parted, she going, as 1 said before, to Europe, (here she mot (ieo. Peabody, then, oomiaratively speaking, a young man, but ono w ho was already mak ing bis mark, and wh se wealth was beginning to pour iu on every side. He saw her and was struck las who that ever .saw her was uot?j with her grace, her winning ways, her exceed ing loveliness, and. after awhile, he proposed. Her heart still clung to her loved one across tne wiue Atlan tic, but after some time she yielded, perhaps to the wishes of her lriends, perhaps to the promptings of worldly ambition, who can tell? Who can iathoni the heart of a young and beau tiful maiden? She became the af fianced wile of Mr. Peabody. After a little interval she came back to this country, and soon alter her arrival, met her tirst love, and alter events Justify me in saying, her "only love." At sight of him ail her former affec tion came back, if, indeed, it had ever left her. and Mr. Pesdxaiv. with his wealth and brilliant prospects, laiH-a away, aim sbe clung with loud aflec- tion to her American lover, und was willia; to share a moderate income with tbe chosen ot her heart. All was told to Mr. Peabody, and he, with that manliness that character izes his every action, gave her up, and in due time she was married aud nettled in a city not more than three hundred aailea from Providence. What she suffered in coming to a final conclusion was known to but few. Her lair cheeks lost their roundness, and new wan an. j pale her .lovely eves nau a wisiiuiness uiai loucneu every heart. Some blamed tier, others praised her. Those who were ambitious of worldly honors pro nounced her f mad," " foolish," to throw over a man like George Pea body, whose ever-increasing wealth would bestow every luxury upon her, and place her in a jiosition in London that would make her lot an envied one, to marry a man who might never have more thin a limited in- I come to live upon. Others, and shall 1 say the nobler part? just ilied her in thinking that love, true love, wa more to he desired than wealth or earthly fame. The painful conflict j was at length ended. Her true WO- ; manhood vindicated itself, and she i wavered no more. I well rememler ; when in Loudon, twenty-eight years ! ago, hearing all this talked over in a j chosen circle of American lriends, ad also, at a brilliant dinner pari given by Gen. Ca-s, at Versailles, it was thoroughly discussed in all its length and breadth. Whether, iu his i visit to this country, Mr. Peabody ever met his once affianced bride, 1 ( cannot say, neither do I know j whether, when she heard of his more j than princely wealth, her heart ever gave a sign at tne inougni, - an uhs might have been udue." Alter several years of wedded bliss, death took her husband from her side, when the glorious loveliness of her youth had ripened into the full luxuriance uf matronhood. Tvrl W A Woman Marries ;ves. A strange disclosure has Iwn ma'!? i at Eth rley, near Bishop Auckland, ! by the death of a woman who has ;;r the past fitly- years resided in that , ' neighborhood aud married two Wives. i It is said that she came from Scotland fifty years M in the guis -o:' a young ; : mau,and obtained employtnent at one j i of the collieries at which site WWked as one of the M foT some time, and j i paid her addresses to, and ultimately i marridl, a servant girl living at the! village inn.

Meeting of the New York Holders of Ten nessee Bonds The Plan Devised for the Protection of their Interests. A meeting of the holders of Tennes see State bonds was held on Monday afternoon at the office of Thomas Den ny & Co., New York city, at which it is estimated $1 2,000,000 of bonds were represented. Mr. J. J. Donaldson, President of the Bank of North Amer ica, presided, and Mr. A. W. Williams acted as sfc-cretary. The committee of five ajMaatated at a previous meeting to devise a plan for the protection or ti. interests of the bondholders, re ported a plan, as follows: 'ih-i; thu authorities ol thn State of Ten nessee shall appoint s cooiuiisaion of three, of which e suggest that the Gov ernor, Treasurer and Secretary of Slate shall be members, and that three be named by a majority or the assenting bondhold ers, and these shall elect the seventh. Tiiul this commission shall receive from the State a transferor a'l the indebtedness of all the various railroads except two, to be hercifter named, 10 the State, to be held in trust for the following purposes. Tbat they shall uollee.i promptly when dui, und in law:ul money, froui all solv ent roads, the amount, due the State as in terest, sinaing fund and principal. That the insolvent roads shall f oreclose and sell at aaction, and if the amount bid lor the road ii not equal to the amount due the State, the commission shall have power to purchase, and it shall be their duty to purchase said road for any amount BOt exceeding the amount due the State. Whenever the bondholders shall surren der their bonds to the commission, to bo ucid as property of the State, the bonds and coupons shall be entitled to receive from the commission a receipt and certifi cate stating that they have surrendered such bunds, and that they have an undi vided pru rata iuterest in the property held by the commission in the ratio that the bonds assented by them bear to the am unt ..i bi.ni.ls required to be assented to acquire the property. Aud until the amount of said bons as sented to said commission and purchased ly ..,'ul commission shall equal the amount said roads aro indebted to the Slate, the commission shall appropriate sueh Btoney as they shall receive from In terest, siAiii,- I Mini an i principal, to pur w ,Vi.hr .

"ttllin expressed his eoafldenee in the desire ot the State of Daaracsaee to pay its debts. He thoueht that it would be impracti.-.i-bie to obtain control ot tho roads by the plan ptopoMcL Mr. Duwaidaon, the Chairman, said that according to the best knowledge which the committee was enabled to obtain, there was a disposition in the State to adopt some such method of c : --;-ri utr off i he debt. This debt ua atsiut to"J,ntX!.iKj, of which nearly 98, OOOjMW was due toi.be railroat'.s. As au as could be judged, the authorities would gladly accept the plan. Mr. W'iliiatus remarked that the heavy debt of Tenne-see was equiva lent, so to sjjeak, to a mortgage on each piece of property within its lim iln. r'or hwtance, farms in Tennessee sold for twetuy-hve Kr cent, less than in Kentucky, all other things Mng equal. Naturally, therefore, Tennes see would lie grateful for any practical plan of getting rid of this horrible iu cubns. After much more discussion it was linaiiy resolved that the committee of five be eteipowered to appotet a sub committee of three to VLsit Tennessee, to confer with the State authorities an well as the railroad- men, w ith a view to devising a plan by which the State debt intere-t may be regularly paid, and the principal, when due, refunded to the lenders. The committee is bouud to no specific plan, but will be guided by the condition of affairs as they hud them. GHAND PROJECT. Norfolk, Va , hjej maJira Great Port. S mong tho projects now occupying .. thoughts of our great capitalists, is a through route from tho Atlantic to ti;e Pacific, having its termini at Nor folk aud San Francisco. The Rich mond Diipatch states that a powerful combination is being formed to carry out tills scheme, and that Mr. A. A. Low has subscribed 1,01)0,000 : Messrs. Flak 4 Hatch, i,i.sx,0jW; Mr. C. P. Huntington, 000,000; General Joseph It. Anderson, $1,000,000; and Meters, Bliss, Winslow, Wainwright and Stewart, 1,000,000 each towards it; that ten per eetit. of the money Subscribed is to paid on the first of January: mid that IjjwyOfk is to be completed v.ithifl two year. The design is to make a railway' from .Norfolk through Virginia and Western Virginia to the point where the Big Sandy river foils into the Ohio. The Washington Chronicle says '.hat the main object is to brjug freight from a point ou the Ohio which is navigable lor large steamers, arid as the Big Sandy runs iuto the Ohio one hundred and fifty miles further down than Parkersburg, the cmisiiig-place of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, it is believed that the greater portiou of the treigbt upon tue Ohio and its tributaries will be intercepted by the new route, and that by the time the CiH supeake and Oaio line reaches this point, u railway from the Junction will have been coustructed to Cincin nati, with a lateral branch to Lexing ton. The proposed liue will have a lighter grade than the Baltimore and Ohio line, over only oue mountain chain aud through a milder climate. Maidens Desiring Husbands. A Paris correspondent, speaking of the patron saint ot maidens desiring husbauds, aud the high regard which is paid to him in France, relates the loiiowing illustration of his powers: Some mouths since, a maiden in a village not tar irom Paris, finding years stealing away and no suitor for her hand appearing, bought a plaster statuette of St. Nicholas, placed it at the bead of her bed, and night and morning addressed supplications to it for a suitable helpmate. The other day her patience became exhausted. She lost all confidence in her saint. Taking the statuette by the nape of the neck, she threw It into the street, ejaculating, " Go to the devil!" As she threw out the statuette, a young man happened to be passing tbe window, lie was bareheaded. Tbe statuette fell on his poll, and not only stunned him, but as it broke to atoms, cut bis scalp severely. Blood poured profusely mrth. He straight way went to au attorney and brguuht suit against the person who had wounded him. He asked heavy dam ages. He did not see the defendant of tbe person and mien made a deep impres sion on him, and he asked leave to withdraw his suit. She, delighted by this termination of legal proceedings, which had looked threatening to her, was very gracious to him, and they walked home trrm the courthouse in com pany. He asked leave to visit her. He soon asked her hand, and thy were married without delay. TREASURE TROVE. Unearthing of a Large Amount of Burled Wealth. i Louisville Courier-Journal, December 2s. The gossips of the city were consid 1 erably excited yesterday by the re port that a targe amount of buried treasure had beeu unearthed and spir ited away in a mysterious maimer. The story readily gained currency, as it is known to many hvre tbat a num ber of jarties have searched for hnid .at treasures in the same locality at va rious times. About three weeks aco. a withered. queer-looking old man, who said that he was a physician, went to the man in charge of the limehouse belonging to the Bridge c.impauy, situated ou the south bank o: the canal, about one hundred feet above the eud of the : new bridge, and stated that he wished to make some chemical experiments, ! und would pay liberally lor the use of a certain portion or the house. The man refused to grant his request, and he left A few days after he was no ticed surveying in the vicinitv. and carefully noting its bearings. The next day fu; asked permission to use a portion of the ground near the taaai, and was told that the bridge company uau no control over it. ne then had building material brought to the spot , auu a sneti nve or six leet high and , aouu. iHtuve teei siitiaro ouut over :t point which ho designated. The j chinks were tightly closed and a I stout lock placed on the door. To the ' curious who asked the meaning of such singular actions, ho toid a plaan ible story, stating that he STianed to experiment with dye stulfs, and j succeeded in deceiviug them as j to ids real object. After the : building was completed he was seen to enter the- shed ia company with i the man who had buiit it ; a rough lookiug man, apparently a laborer, j carrying picks aud shovels. They re mained in the shed all day, only leav : ing it after nightfall, and then return ! ing again in a short time, aud until : late in the night gleams of light were I detected through the chiuks and cran- nies of the roughly-coustriabd hut. , About ten days ago, shortly alter I night had set in, the old doctor was i observed to come out, look carefully j in every direction, re-enter the slieu, I and then emerge iu a few ntiautes with j his companion, and bearing between , them a burden, the exact shape of i which couid not bo determined btu which appeari to be weighty, pbtce it in a wagon neai by, and drive rap ( idly away. the. ucxt u.ty, nor the next, the DijfsterioBs maple argrq not s-eu,aud on Sunday tiie curiosity ol j those who had observed their actions i overcame ail other cousideialious, and : an entrance was forced into tho hut. ! lu one corner pf ;lie nui was a hole in the earth Bva or six teet in daime . ter, and six or eight feet deep. At j one side of the pit was a pusi, the lop of which cameVithiu two feet of the ! surface ot" the earth, aad in the uper end of which was driven a singular i lookiug braso nail. The post was vety ' mu.li decayed, and had evidently I U-en in the ground for some time. The vicinity is sttoject to overflow in I timeot high water, and the earth on the post had evidently been deposited by tiie floods. The tools used in ex ! cavatiug were lying jusi as they had Us-n leu. The discovery at once brought to I memory of several residents of the vi- cinity Utc fact that about rifteeu yaars ; ago a mau who greatly resemnied the , iutie old man, ac'ompauied by two . other, spent several weeks iu search : ing the locality with a divining-rod aud other appliances used in disco ver i ing metaisand hi digging. They were ; uiiuece.s.ssS?, atid dually give up ia ; disgust, ileiore they uepartrd, how I ever, one of the men, while mioxicat I ed, boasted thai tbeiv was a large ; amount ui gidd and diamonds buried j somowhere in that vicinity, and thai I he would Und it if it loua a Uictime. He was plied with more liquor, anJ told the eager list.mers that u convict, vtho had died in prison iu aa eastern State, had eonlided to oue ot his com rades, who was also a prisoner at the time, that a wealthy and eccentric Cu ban had beea followed from Mew Or leans by the convict aud a comrade, and murdered oa the old road leading from Shippiugsport, where the boats all landed in those days, to Louisville, shortly after he left the steamer on which he came from New Orleans; a large sum of money in goid, and dia monds of an enormous value taken from his person, and the body stripped and thrown into the river. Surprised and aiarmeu at the euoirmous bootv they bad secured, they at Ihy dead of ' uight buried it, aud agreed to leave it untouched until all risk of detection 'had passed. As the Cuban wtis a-i et;- tire stranger,bis disappearance excited inimical legislation ; approving of tue no comment until some time after- j action ofCuUfress iu tho cat ? J.--or-ward, when all traces of him had been gia, and endorsing the resolution of lost. The druuken man toid how one of the murderers was shortly atierward ! killed in a drunken brawl in New Orleans, and the other recog j uized as sn old offender, arrested, tried, and sentenced to a long term in ! tbe peuitentiary, and on his death I bed revealed the secret of his fellow j convict: that when tho convict was released from prison he had entered j into an agreemeut with himself and : the doctor, tffee nrolossod to have an i . . -i .. ! infallible method of discoverm bur ied metals, but that the search so for had been fruitless. At this point du the story one of the treasure-seekers , came in and spoke roughly to hltu and ! I hurried him trom the house, aud they were set n no more. Several attempts to dieooyer the treasure were made by j those to whom he related this story, but always without success, and they i finally concluded that the story was , but the chimera of a drunken brain, j and that there never was any treasure i burled on the banks of the canal. The return of the old diictor; his j J mysterious actions, and the evident i accomplisbmeiit ot bis object, revived ; 1 the old story, and the discovery of tho ! ; hole iu the earth, and the tools which bad beeu used iu excavating, set the curious wild with excitement, and. i hundreds visited the spot yesterday. : As to what was found iu ihe hole, of, course is mure ppnjeetare, but that the i j hole was dug in the mysterious -i manner described is voucned for as j i tric!ly true. Such a firm conviction of the truth of thestory has seised the i minds of two well-known detectives I tii2t they have taken the matter iu j hand, aud will try to probe it to the ; bottom. We trust thev may succeed. Colenso Come Again. The last English ecclesiastical trial that of P.ev. Mr. Voysey differs trom the most of its predecessors iu the fact I that a conviction was procured ; but ' what strong facts it took to bring this about the record discloses. Mr. voy sey has said very frequently, and with ! great emphasis, that the doctrines of ; the atonement, the incarcerasjpn, and i others, as ordinarily underM, are not only wrong, but horribly blasphe-niou-; further, that though he does I not deny the truth of the d-ietriaes in some sense or other, he denies and has a right to deny, any sense ihat any- ; body has ever put upon tmmf; aud, i finally, that much ol the Bible is false : 1 and 'minora!, aud that in particular St. John's Gospel is so bad in its lin- i ! morality and inaccuracy that it cannot j I be genuine.
