How our State Politics Looks. Whittemore, a member of congress from South Carolina, and who was mixed op in the selling of cadctships resigning his scat to save being ex pelled by his virtuous associates has just been re-elected by 8,000 ma jority. What will the house of rep resentatives do now ? Will they send him home again ? Would it not be better to vote him " temporarily in sane ?" On Sunday tho Cth inst., one of the most terrible conflagrations in modern history occurred at Constantinople. It destroyed the residences of the American and British ministers, the consulates of several nations, thea tres, churches, mosques, stores, and thousands of houses were licked up by the flame?. Wo have seen no es timate of tho loss. Thirty persons were killed or injured by the falling walls. An accident occurred on the Rut land Railroad last Tuesday night, re sulting in the killing of three persons instantly, and wounding sixteen oth ers. A night train got off the rail near the Summit, when a relief train, consisting only of a smoking car, was sent from the Summit to take the pas sengers to Rutland. The accident was caused by the late rains which washed away a part of the road, and the train was precipitated into the gul- Letter from Kansas. Letter from Washington. KEEPING STOCK IN KANSAS. That portion of our country which lies south of the fortieth degree of north lati tude, and west of the eighteenth degree west longitude, and including Texas, In dian territory, Kansas, Arizona, New Mex ico and portions of Nevada, Utah, Califor nia and Colorado seems peculiarly adapted to stock raising, on account of its mild, short winters, and the unlimited range of pasture which it affords. In many of these States and territories, cattle need no feed ing during the entire year; and in none are they obliged to feed stock for more than three months ; and nntil our nation shall have fulfilled its destiny, and our country be crowded with people from ocean to ocean, this section must be its great pas ture, standing unrivaled in its capacity for the cheap production of beef and mut ton.

He is said to be a most excellent man, kind, gentlemanly, not " starched and stuck up," like somo Rovernors that Ver mont has had, but somewhat plebeian istic. We hope so and are ready to believe it. t or lieutenant governor wo have heard but ono name spoken of Geo. N. Dalo of Island fond, who seems to be the favorite, and most ex cellently will he grace tho position. He has our best wishes for his suc cess. The state ticket will be settled peaceably ; but in all three of the con grcssional districts we predict more or less of turmoil and adroit thimble rigging. In the first district Willard, who has not yet enjoyed quite one term of congressional sweets, is liable to havo trouble, though wo trust that his threatened opposition may not amount to much. There arc about a score of self-supposed intellectual giants in his district, mostly located in Rutland county, who will never die till they have first gono to congress. These cannot wait the customary pe riod of four years, and so we sec the political sky in that district overhung with clouds black and portentous to tho present member. A correspond ent of the last Middlcbury Register advocates tho claims of Henry Clark of Rutland, and speaks approvingly of W. M. Evarts and others that might bo moulded over into very fair oppo nents of Willard, but wc think ho will bo found to carry too much artillery for them. Ho has been a very active and efficient member, whom the first district cannot afford to swap off for one not so good. In tho second district, Judge Poland will doubtless bo returned. He has already served two terms and may meet with a stray lion or two who will attempt to obstruct his path, but we opine his opposition will be smothered with case, should any arise. The third district is very warm ; it will bo red hot in less than four weeks. Strango as it may seem there is found moro than ono man that is willing to have tho nomination forced upon him. We never saw the like ! Patriots are as thick as flics in an apothecary's ointment, and somo of them of about as much account ! Geo.

Dixon of St. Albans, assistant secretary. The first proposed amendment to the con stitution, prohibiting tho ercation of corporations and the increasing and diminishing of their powers by special laws, was rejected on Thursday by a vote of 63 to 168. On Friday the question of biennial sessions came up and that amendment adopted, 118 to 115. A vote to reconsider was car ried, and the question is to be tried again.

The fire started on the roof, and doubt less took from a spark falling from the chimney. Tho recent dry wcath er had made it like tinder and a light breeze at the time fanned it out of or dinary power. If a ladder and a few pails of water had been handy, the building could probably havo been saved. The alarm was made and the fire company soon oa the ground, but having no water they could do but little. Mr. Webb was absent in Westminster at the time, but his fam ily and the neighbors and citizens generally soon rallied and saved most of his goods in the house, and tho contents of the barn adjoining which was also burnt. His total lo?s must be more than $2,000, on which he was insured in the Home, rsew York, $1,000 on the house, and $250 on household furniture, tfce.

Where is there another field of action so free to all and so unlimit ed? At present there is as good a chance in Kansas as in any other State for one who wishes to engage in stock raising, and there probably will be for several years to come. The winters are longer chan in many parts of the southwest, (cattle need feeding three months) but the ready and steady market brought near, by railroads crossing the State in every direction, gives her a great advantage over remote sections. In sum mer there is a chance to herd stock on the prairies in all parts of the State, and espec ially in the middle and southern counties: in winter stock is kept in a "corral," (a piece of wood land fenced in) which serves to break the force of the winds. Stock will winter well here without other shelter than the woods, if they have plenty of hay or cornstalks, but a great share of the people here are naturally tired and some are too lazy to cut hay enough for, their stock, and the result is that during the winter one or two dozen carcasses are dumped into the creek, or drawn to the prairie. It is a common and villainous practice here to draw dead animals cither to the creek or out cm the prairie, and poisoned water and miasmal air is a natural consequence. There are two distinct breeds of cattle in Kansas, the Native and Texas. The Na tive cattle, which in part resemble the Durhams, are a superior breed. This may be partly owing to the fact hat, for nine months of the year they have all the grass they want (as good as poor feeding will in time alter the shape and appearance of any breed;) but 1 have certainly seen as fine looking cows of this Native breed as I ever saw of any, though they are inte rior to those of a dairy region for milk. These Native cows are worth from thirty to sixty dollars a head. The Texas cattle are of medium size. with very large horns and a wild, excita ble disposition. The saying that a newly arrived Texas steer can be salted down in his horns is not so far from the truth, and is partly a description of his condition, and part a compliment to his horns. They are a tough, hardy animal, and crossed with a larger and gentler breed, the Durhams for instance, would make a very good breed of cattle. But half blooded Texas cattle are rarely tamed, and when stampeding are hardly less dangerous than the buffalo. The cattle can be bought in Texas by taking a herd as they come, old andyoung, for from seven to twelve dollars a head. There is little risk in taking them from Texas to Kansas excepting from a class of men who lie in wait for herds coming up on the trail, and in the confusion which follows, manage to steal some of them. Texas cattle can be bought at the southern line of Kansas for four or five dollars a head more than they cost in Texas. There is a law of Kansas which forbids any one to take Texas cattle into the State excepting in the winter months. The rea son for this is, they are said to bring a dis ease with them which, though nearly harm less to themselves, is fatal to other cattle. The practice in regard to this law is to drive the cattle into the southern counties and herd them there until minter, and then drive them north, but a good allowance of false swearing will take them through with out all this ceremony. There has been some resistance to this law, and I believe it has been decided by the courts to be un constitutional. The cost of keeping these cattle is small. A newly arrived herd must be watched night and day at first, but "after a little" they will liequietly at night unless frightened. Two herders are re quired for any herd, and more for a large Oue. In some places there is unoccupied timber which a person can use for a " cor ral," and thus keep cattle the year round without owning land. Hay costs nothing but the trouble of cutting and stacking. Beef is rather high here considering the great number of cattle in the State. Grass fed Texas steers sell at from four to six cents per pound, live weight; and corn fed steers are worth a cent a pound more. Some persons, to my knowledge have doub led their money in a single year on these cattle, and many have failed of doing it, but as a general thing it is profitable business. his squaws) who is exciting the attention of the world by his warlike attitude.

He was an Englishman ; a gentleman of the old school. It seemed out of place to find him in a hennery ; but we might have tho't Cincinattus out of place at his plow, or Garabaldi in his factory. He had been a millionaire, and as pertaining; to his rank, he owned a seat in Parliament, just as he owned a house at tbe seaside. In a lucky hour, so he was pleased to say, he sunk all ing on them, and to tell the President that in a mining or manufacturing speculation, if he will make a treaty and keep it, that he can take all his braves away and set them to raising corn. The Indian terri torial bill for the civilized Indians is meet ing with strong opposition in and out of Congress. The ordinary quiet routine of the Indian department is now being agitated by the persistent determination of a North Caro lina Cherokee Indian woman, Martha A. Hall, who was compelled to come from a distant part of Kentucky, to receipt for a sum less than a hundred dollars. But when she arrived, under the impression that her money was ready, payment was refused on the ground that the agent (of the govern ment) had embezzled the funds belonging to the North Carolina Cherokees, and it for he never before knew independence.

Mr. Stewart introduced a bill to prohibit contracts for servile labor, which was reierred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Stewart explained that the bill intended to apply to Chinese immigration. He said in making the Coolie labor contracts, the Chinese contractors took advan tage of the peculiar religious views of the Chinese to provide for their re turn to their native land, dead or alive. These contracts were for four years, and the Chinese dared not break the contract for fear that in case of his death his body might not be returned to his own country. Tbe bill would break up this Coolie sys tern by prohibiting contracts for a longer period than six months, while it also provided for the return of the Chinese to their own country. This period would be long enough to ena ble immigrants to pay the expenses of their passage and not long enough to make their importation as a system a means of profit. Immediate action on the subject is necessary, in view of the reports that the agents are now endeavoring to in troduce this class of laborers into Massachusetts and other States. A joint resolution for the increase of the pay of Assistant Census Mar shals was amended and passed. .As amended, it provides that the increase shall not exceed 50 per cent, of the present compensation, nor shall the entire compensation be more than petition from Messrs.

Finally she was paid $35, in or der to get rid of her, saying that it was a donation, and she must get out of the city by the first train. Having the law on her side, which is very specific and clear, she refused to leave the city. On quotations from the law, she made her way to the White House. Here to his astonishment, the following morning, armed with a writ ten statement of her case, with ample proof, the official who had directed her to leave, found her ready to appeal to the President. She was asked if she had not been directed to leave, to which she replied affirmatively, notifying said official, that she did not in tend to leave until she got her rights. Af ter considerable filibustering on the part of the officials, she got her paper fairly be fore the President. The upshot of which was, that the President ordered the pay ment of her money according to law.

Cannot some more widows who have claims against the government, and have been illy treated by our officials appeal to Gen. Grant for justice? Treasury Spinner is sound to the last on financial question. In his last letter on the the national banks and funding of the debt, Mr. Spinner briefly shows that the only question for Congress to decide is whether the government shall issue its own notes to the amount of three hundred millions and save to the people the interest, which at 4 per cent, would amount to twelve millions of dollars, or allow the banks to have their own circulating notes secured by U. S. de posits, on which the governmena (the peo ple) is paying six per cent. From reliable authority we learn that this government can place four per cent bonds in Europe for all the money she wants, and thereby reduce our present taxation at least eigh teen millions of dollare per annum. A review of the work performed in the Bureau of Education last month shows that its duties are neither light nor unimportant. Until recently no record of correspondence has been kept.

Educational documents and information has been received from every State in the Union except Oregon.

A few who had friends in America or who had been there thenselves, took the right side. In private by conversation, and in public by lectures, it may be I was of some little assistance to them. We rode in Am erican stages and buggies, lived in houses built of American timber, sat on American chairs, used Quaker pails, and all sorts of Boston notions, had our bread made of Cal ifornia flour, read cheap reprints of Amer ican books, and the papers were filled with American news. Yet when the subject of allowing fees to ministers for officiating in marriage cameup in the Presbyterian Sy nod it was enough to defeat the whole measure that Aboc denounced it as" Yan kee notion." THE TILLAliE SCHOOLMASTER. Speaking of doiniues, leads me to give a sketch of Adam It., the pedasrogue. It would have required Goldsmith to describe him. Adam was a character' A Scotch man of course; I never knew an Adam that wasn't; whence I conclude that the original Adam was a Scotchman. It. was a bachelor, a good " master," and worthy man, though he had something of the "old Adam" about him. His pupils studied aloud, and he himself sometimes thought aloud. A man after Carlyle's own heart ; he believed in the virtues'of the birch, as if it were the tree of knowledge. He de spised " moral suasion" and all other new fangled notions. He evinced a sovereign contempt for women's rights, or, as my in formant expressed it, " He railed at the sect." He was even heard to say, (Oh, the beauty !) " That if no help meet had been Erovided for man we might all have now een in Eden. No wonder that the judg ment come upon him that drove him out of his Eden." It is some comfort to think upon it : though his Eden was only the United States troops within the States in rebellion during the war came up, and uiotioDS to postpone and recom mit having been rejected, a long dis cussion followed, which was partici pated in by Messrs. Howard, Wil liams, Edmunds, Rice and Fowler, but without a vote the Senate adjourned. HOUSE. Mr. Schenck of Ohio ha3 just re ported his funding bill.

The principal and interest to be exempt from all federal, State municipal or local taxation. The total . bonded debt is not to be increased, but the new bonds arc to be exchanged for the outstanding five-twenty bonds ai their par value, ine oui was re committed. Mr. Banks of Massachusetts called attention to the fact of the recent publication of what was purported to be the report of the Committee on Foreign Affairs on the subject of Cu ba. It was published, he said, with out the authority or knowledge of the committee, and he regretted exceed ingly its publication. It was an im perfect report of the statement read to the committee on the i th of March last, and had been kept confidential He asked that the majority and mi nontv reports mumt oe puoiisnea in with an amendment extendins its pro- house with 5 acres of landoext to the mill visions akso to Uommanacr John Li.

The way of it was , , , ' tributed through the several Southern States, and the demand for them is still in creasing. All this indicates that the north ern school "marms," as of yore, will not be troubled long to find employment in the South. This Bureau has just received from our Consul at Basle, Switzerland, some clip- I have seen hardly half a dozen flocks of ping8 from a Berne paper giving the Swiss sheep in Kansas, though 1 see no reason why keeping them should not be a profit able business. Unwashed wool is worth forty cents a pound, and mutton brings a good price. The most of the sheep that are kept around here are neither fed nor herded during the year, and they seem to do well. It is less trouble to herd them than cattle, and they need but little feed ing anywhere in this section. This spring, after being shorn, they were offered at one dollar and fifty cents a head. Hogs are plenty and run at large thro' the woods and streets. The native Kansas porker is a natural curiosity. He don't re semble any other animal that I ever saw, but looks very much as a Gar fish would on legs. His snout comes so near being half of him that he is about evenly balanc ed on his four legs, and he can take the third row of corn through a wire fence eay. Keeping hogs ought to pay here, as the expense is small, and pork is as high a in Vermont. They can be kept to the best advantage with fattening cattle, as they will take what would otherwise be wasted. There is a breed of White Chester hogs here which do well. In answer to some inquiries, I would say to any one who thinks of coming to Kan sas, come as soon as you are prepared to go into some business for yourself, or when you know before hand wheie you can get a paying job of work. There are plenty of Habitual constipation leads to tho following results : Inflamation of tho kidneys, sick and nervous headache, biliousness, dyspepsia, indigestion, piles, loss of appetite and strength ; all of which may bo avoided by be ing regular in your habits, and taking, sav one of Parsons' Purgative Pills nightly, for four or six weeks. this : The board wishing not to be so far " behind the times," decided to have a fe male as assistant teacher and some other improvements. A governess of uncertain age, by dint of canvassing, secured the place. She made herself at home. She soon showed herself the "master," and new modeled the school. She succeeded so well by mere assurance that Adam became fright ened. He began to fear that she had de signs on his home and heart. He thought it better to beat a hastv retreat with the loss of his baggage and munitions of war than to surrender at discretion. He was fairly driven off the field. It afforded a melancholy satisfaction to him even then that it fully confirmed his theory which he dignified by the name of a doctrine con cerning the reason which led Adam to leave paradise and the tree of knowledge. " Eh. inon." said mv trustv gossip " it was an unco sad sight to see the maister girnen and greetin with spite.

But I forbear as I have already written an unconscionably long article. I may at some luture time take the liberty of introducing to you aud your readers view of the much vexed question, whether ladies should be admitted to Universities in common with gentlemen, and especially whether they should be allowed to attend lectures on medicine and anatomy. It shows that for the past six years ladies have been in the habit of studying medi cine at the University of Zurich ; that in '67 a young Russian lady took the degree of Dr. of medicine, surgery and obstetrics ; that last winter the attendance of ladies at the anatomical and clinical lectures and experiments had never given rise to the least objections or disturbance.

After this one dilatory motion, the motion to reconsider was laid on the table and the amendment agreed to 139 to 43. Mr. Schenck then ofiered as an amendment the second section of his tariff bill, being the free list section. Mr. Holman of Indiana (xp rets 3d the hope that the previous question would not be seconded, in order that he might move to add to the free list tea, coffee, salt and coal.

Mr. Willard of Vermont argued that the bill did not cure the evil. It simply legalized it.

A bill to promote postal and com mercial intercourse between Cedar Keys.'Fla., aud Havana, Cuba, author izing a contract with John F. Patter son and associates for a weekly mail service at a cost not exceeding $70. 000 a year, was introduced aud re ferred. The House then proceeded with the consideration of the Ctrrency bill, Mr. Garfield of Ohio, Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Cur rency, taking the floor in cxplanatioL and advocacy of the measure. After discussing the general subject of dis tinction between coin and paper mon ey, he quoted from a recent publica-1 ticn "The Science of Finance," by j Robert H. Patterson of Scotland to show that the paper circulation of the United Xingdom had remained practically stationary for tie last twenty-five years, since 1841, when tbe great currency act of Sir Robert Peel iorbade the increase of paper money, except in a very limited way, and then under great restrictions, and yet within that time the Uuited Kingdom had trebled its wealth and quadrupled its trade. The great in strument of British trade wa3 neither coin nor paper, but the check, the commercial bill and the draft on the bank. This remarkable fact showed that the bank was to-day the great mechanism for facilitating trade rath er than coin or notes. He believed that the first great want of the coun try was a sound currency exchangea ble into coiu, but as that was impossi ble at present, and beyond his aspira tions, he would say that at the second great want of the country was increas ed facilities for making exchange, whether in firm paper, notes or bank ing credits. He replied to the argu ment as to the distribution of curren cy, arguing that no matter how dis tributed, it would flow in channels regulated by laws of trade, and could not be restricted by any absolute pro visions of statute law, He said it was not mere inequalitv in the distribution of currency ol which the complaint wa3 made, but it was of the inequality of the banking capi tai ana oanKing lacuities that was standing. This is a very large lodsre for so small a place and argues well for the cauf e ol temperance in Koxbury. John H. French, LL.
