The elder Adams left a moderate for tune at his death. Jefferson died compaiatively poor. If Congress had not purchased his li brary at a price far above its value ($20,000) he would with difficulty have kept ont of bankruptcy at the clese of his life. - . ' ' v ' Madison saved his money and was comparatively rich. - The fortune of his widow was increased by the purchas l cf his manuscript papers by Congress for $30,000. ,. James Monroe, the sixth President, died so poor that he was buried at the expense of his relatives in a cemetery between Second and Third streets, near the Bowery in New York City.. - John QniEcy Adams left about $50,- 000, the result of industry, prudence, and a small inheritance. He was me thodical and economical. Andrew Jackson left a valuable, es tate known as the Hermitage, about twelve miles from Nashville, Tenn. Martin Van Buren died rich. His es tate was estimated at nearly $300,000. James K Polk left about $150,000. James Tyler was a bankrupt when he became President. He husbanded his means while in office, and married a rich wife, and died wealthy in worldly fortune. Zachary Taylor left about $150,000 Millard Fillmore is a wealthy man. Franklin Pierce saved $50,000 dur- ing his term or service aa xicmucut . . . f. Tl n ! .1 t James Buchanan died a bachelor and left an estate valued at $200,00a at the least Abraham Lincoln left about $75,000. Johnson is said to be worth about $50,000. President Grant was poor before the ir. Bv a careful husbanding of his salary and through the generous gifts of frieuds before he became Presi dent, his fortune is a handsome compe tence. That last hit on Grant is very rich. An Intelligent Pakrot. The natural history editor of the Lexington, Ky., Press tells this : "A lady residing in a city not a nun dred miles from Lexington is the pos sessor of two pets a monkey and a parrot who are by no means congenial friends ; in fact, Mrs. C. was m the habit of locking up the monkey whenever she left the house, for fear of his belligerent qualities. One evening, alas ! she neg lected to do so, and the monkey coming in found the parrot ready for a fight, and a very desperate one ensued. The monkey ruthlessly pulled out every feather of the unhappy parrot, and broke ud the mantel ornaments, and smashed things generally. When Mrs. C. returned she found the moDkey chat tering on the mantelpiece, and out crept the parrot looking deeply injured, and ereeted her with, ' We've had a hell of a time.' The aupropi lateness of the remark caused shouts of laughter." Miss Nellie ' Grant's Debtjt. The Baltimore Sun of December 27th" says: Miss Nellie Grant made her society debut at a "German," given at Mosini's Hall, Washington, on Tuesday evening of last week. She was chaperoned by Mrs. Frelinghuysen, and a correspond entsaysof her: "She was looking ex ceedingly well, and wore a lovely dreSB f rl bine silk, with an overdress of Valenciennes lace. Like her mother, Miss Grant has beautiful arms, neck and hands, and she appears to . the greatest advantage in evening dress. The Cause. We notice in the Con gressional proceedings that the notorious Blanton Duncan has presentea a claim against the Government for property Bfiizpd diirinsr the war. This looks as .though Blanton js going to get his re ward now for the part he played in the lnt ProsiflfiTit.ial camoaizn. This will account, at least, for his activity in aid ing the re election of Grant. We shall watch and see whether this mountebank will be successful. "Roland," the charger on which the Earl of Cardigan led the charge of the Light Brigade. f'Noble Six , Hundred; has just died at the age of 30 four years after his master, This body did not undertake to equal ize the taxes for the present year, as taxes were being colleted in the various counties at the time the Board met. The fact also that the assessment rolls of only three or four counties gave the different species of personal property, rendered such equalization out of the question. We understand that the Board have prepared rules relating to the duties of Assessors, and likewise rules for the observance of the county Boards of Equalization. A new form of assessment roll has been gotten up, which will be bound in uniform style and furnished to each county in tripli cate. It is thought that the existing inequality of assessments will not occur hereafter to any great extent, should the the Assessors follow the suggestions and advice given them, and the county BoardB act in accord with the State Board. The equalization between coun ties will he rendered much easier and less expensive, if the rules and arrange ments of the Board are carried into effect. When all property is fairly as sessed under its appropriate head and the proper offsets allowed to appear up on the assessment rolls, there will be such a showing of taxable property as to occasion a reduction in the ratio of State as well as county tax. We learn that the State Board made a report to the Governor of the results of their de liberations. Me. Merriam has introduced in the House of Representatives a bill restrict ing -the publication . of the yearly ad- vertisements for proposals to carry the mails to one or more newspapers printed in the Congressional district or Territo ry where the routes begin, pass through or terminate. If this bill becomes law il will effect a much needed reform. At present columns and columns of proposals, for mail service are published at great expense in partisan newspapers where there is no possibility of their meeting the eye of probable bidders In this way a double purpose is effected. The owners of the partisan papers are rewarded for their subserviency by the patronage thus bestowed upon them, and the proposals for bids are concealed from the view of honest bidders, giving the favorites of the Post Office Ring great advantage over all competitors Gloomt Prospect for Insurance. The New York correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette says : There is increasing evidence of concealed plan for the destruction ol New York, and the authorities are ex- ercisinff the utmost vigilance. Extra men have'been engaged on the Fire De oartment. and additional engines are under contract. Many Communists, ex pelled from Paris after its last capture, are in New York, and their movements excite much suspicion. It is impossible to account for the origin of all the re cent fires excent on the theory that some of them were incendiary.
