I aoon secured myself n seat, und retnaiucd watching the proceedings for oino) time. The debates were very interest ing, nnd displujetl much vigor of thought hikI terseness of expression. Uy a wise rule Hilopte I early in the seuson, tacit speaker whs limite'l to ten minutest, which secured condensation in argument, while it added variety to the entertainment for an outsider like myself. The discussions wero chiefly curried' on by the whiles, whose intelligence und rrntlier discernment gave them a deci ded advnntflge. "Occasionally, however, ft colored tnem jier etsayed to ix press himself, w hich he did in his own original stylo; 1 do not mean common plnulation talk, hut in tolerably gootl gratnniHticnl language, remarkable chiefly fur the absence of nny regular me thod in its composition. The illustrations used in thu course of argument were often homely and occasioned merriment, but st-emed quite npropos to the points at issue. I might remark in passing that some ol these colored delegates have had no mean education, and possess, in addition the ad vantages nf a varied experience. All the members seemed impressed with tho impor tance of the wnrk ia which they were en gttged, and anxious to see it well done. There were men there whose gray hairs and self collected mien betokened a ripe expert nee and careful judgement. Otners there Acre in thu prime of life whose serious as pect, and yet noro restless manner, told of greater intellect mil vigor and more eager interest. The few young men of the assem bly kept themselves modestly in the back ground, and seldom spoke. "Tuke it all in all, us 1 have heard it fre quently remarked since my unival, a more sober ami orderly legislative body were never before assembled at the state capital. Drinking is very rare emoiig its members, anil those who remember the disgruceful scenes formerly so much in vogue, canuot nut draw a favorable comparison of tho pre sent state of affairs with them. As to the composition of the convention in other res peitls, I lind very erroneous ideas prevail abroad. "Instead of a confused mass of northern adventurers and negroes, of which many suppose it to bu made up, I letirn. upon care lul inquiry, that fully three fourths of the whites, to say nothing of the others, are old residents of good standing in their several communities. Many of them are lawyers ot known talent, and lew have worn the judi cial ermine. That they did not command a larger support from the whites is due in a greut measure to the tenor of public opinion, which kept numbers away from the polls. The combined efforts of the old secession element nnd the renegade Republicans who have scattered themselves everywhere in the South lor the purpose of stirring up strife, have succeeded lor the time being in de ptiving the people nf their senses on the question of reconstruction. But that truth will in the end p.evail I have no doutit. All that remains is fur Congress at act firmly and with moderation, and we shall soon see the States creeping back one by one into their former loyal status." Proposed ' tie of Cuba nntl Porto Etico. The New York Herald hat the following lespuicli from Uuvann : " VVe have further and authentic news from Madrid in relation to thu sale of the Spanish West Indian possess. on. It conveys the important information that the Spanish government has mudu a (urinal offer to the American Minister at Madrid, the Hon. John H. Hale, to sell the islands of Cuba and forto Kico to the United States for one hundred and fifty millions of dollars in gold The term ot sale are as f.illows: Fifty mil lion dollars in gold are to bu paid down iu i'hsIi on the signing of thu treaty nnd the formal delivery of thu island to the authori ties of the United States. A second fifty million dollar in gold to be paid one year thereulter. The third instalment nf fifty millions in gold to be paid at the end of six jeurs. The public heart is beating with anxiety at the announcement, and great ex citement prevails, as the extinguishment of slavery here will be one of the consequences ot ilns sale. It was hoped by some that Spain would abolish the institution in time to save her national pride. The acquistions made by the foiled States from Russia and Denmark, that of Louisiana from France, and of Florida from Spain herself, are now referred to as precedents that leave the national honor of Spain in this bargain un assailable. The sharp scent nf Yankee speculation is instanced by tho fact thut an American company lias already, on the strength of the above reports, purchased Gtiujaba island, near Uuevitas. They in tend to colonize it, and are about to put 80.0(10 acres of it under cultivation. Thus thu last hopes of the slave traders are gone."

Mi yurig friend, yu are about tew begin life, and nltho it may seem clrcdful impossi ble tew yu, nevertheless yu will be liable to inane sum mistakes while yu are scoring, or during the fust mile or two. Let me mix up a lUtlu advise for yu tew take till you git tew trotting stiddy. Yu will obt.erve that the advise it designed for young gentlemen who show sum signs of speed, and also that i reason right from tho shoulder. 1st. Treat the old man and the old wo man as yure equals; smile when they ex hort, and laff when they entreat, for no yung man kan hope for suckcess in the or tiumentot walks uv life w ho dont wear the belt at homo. 2. If yu kant raze a mustach, commit sui cide at once and begin agin j for it is better tew die than to suller disgrace. 8. Cultivate impudense impndense ia a good substitute for bravery only be a little kcertul tew pick yure customers when vu try it. 4. Keep a trotter and a fitcing rooster. Tbezc animals will let yu iuto the konBdense uv men w ho w ill watch over yure morals and no 88 pure genius. 5. Avoid the old fogys; they are a miser able set uv cowardly croakers, who, like a third rate dorg, have lurnt what little they kno about virtew bi simply being overmatch ed in a fair fight. 6. Suspekt buI femail virtew. This will give you an easy flow of ambiguous lan guage while in sosiety uv the ludys and enabel yu tew awaken confusion which yu kan kail sumthing else. 7. If yu git desperit, and must marry, marry for ducuts marrying for blud or for luv iz too sloppy for a man ov spirits. Luv iz a pashun, and iz desighned for 2 story houses on oue ov tho back streets, not for a brown stun front. 8. Bi aul means learn tu aware, nud smoke freely, and don't ever mistake rain water for milk punch, onless yu want a soft thing. 9. Call religion a stock jobber's pigeon to ketch Ilntts with ; say that virtew iz only the galvanized impotence ov cowards; that wisrJtiin iz but an egg that iz addled ; lad' at aul things that tire solemn, and sware that Buck us and Venus are the only two gods fit tow be worshipped. Young man, cultivate fill) the above graces, and add tew them what the ardor nf yure genious may inspire, nnd if tho hoss jockeys and pimps generally don't say yu are a cuss uv the brightest hew, and if the devil don't make yu sum flattering proposals, the days of chivalry are positively over, and pudditig and milk has got more glory in it than a brandy smash, a rum sour, or even a tbomas and jerry. Yung man (a fu words w ith yu in private,) let these cheerful remarks settle down into yu when yu git to rellektiug at 12 o'clock sum ruiny night. Dont make a phnol of yourself by trieing to jump 60 feet at one jump and laud among the Beruoys at. onst, but examine yure bild clussly and see if yu aiut better koustt ukted for sumthing honest. But if yu rind yu must go to dispair, then put on aul the steam yu kan carry, and either bust or git thare az soon az possibel. P. S. -When yu git thare, nud hev had enuffov it, just drop me a line and I will see what kan be did for yu. But don't for git one thing thut the road buck is 8 times az fur, and all the way up hill besides. lVhlnins; Woman. If there be anything in the wide world that w ill wear on the patienco of a man, and render him indifferent to his domestic fire side aud the society of his wife he hus pro mised to cherish, it is a whining wemnu. To bear day after day iu the morning when he sits down at thu breakfast table, and in the evening when returned from his wearisome days' labor, piteous complaints like these, uttered ia dolorous accents : "Oh, I have such a headache !'' or "my back aches so I can scarcely stuud," would require a virtue superior to that found in any being "made a little lower than the angels" to wilhstund them without flinch ing from the course of strict rectitude. The institution of marriage hus in view thu improvement f the eurthly condition nt those who respect it. No person, man or woman, contemplates murriage without ex pecting to better himsell or uersell. A mac who in a freak of fancy for a pair ol melting black eyes or pretty face, allies himself for Uto wmi a sickly wile, is certainly much to blame if he exhibit a coolness of manner toward her. He should have been more discreet in his choice. Rosy cheeks and dancing health are very attractive to the unmarried, and titer marriage constitute one of the strongest links that bind a hus band's love. Wheu a year or two of that close intimacy only found in wedded life, has dispelled' all the romance that either party entertained on thu threshold, and one realizes thut thu other is an invalid, bow much of bitterness is added to his or her cup of married existence, be other things ever so abuudunt and luxurious their palatial abode. It may be laid down as a maxim, that in no eurthly condition is health so uecessary a in the married relation. Young man, if you would bo happy in your home; if you would avoid a disposition to "whine,'' ami thus render jou permanently uncom fortable, tee to it that your wife is a healthy busoin latnie to whom headache and back aches are marvel of other folk's preten sions. Miss Muloch, in speaking of the inflm nre of woman in society, use the follow ing lan guage : "Oh I if 'gloomy' women did but know what comfort there is in a cheerful spirit- How the heart leaps to meet a sunshiny face, a merry tonge, an even temper, aud a "heart which, either naturally, or, what is better, conscientious principle, has learned to take all things on the bright side, believing that thu Giver of life being all perfect love, the tits t oueriDg we can nuke to turn is tn eniov to the full what he sends of good, and what he allows of evil like a child who, when once it believes in its father, believe in all his doing with it, whether it understands them or not." That huabaud who baa a prrpetnal sun shine in bis home io the shape nt a cheerful wife, should be one of th happiest of men, and if he is not, Providence hss been too kind to him. An exchange asks, "Why are women like churches I" Firstly, because there is no liv ing without one ; secondly, because there ia many a spire to them ; thirdly, because they re objecta of adoration, viei lastly, but by no means least, bectuse brv beVe IfW o'appsT in their upnri htt.
