Ia its issue of Monday, the 22d nit., the Indianapolis Sentinel, the leading organ of the Democracy of Indiana, plaees at the head of its columns the name of Thomas A. Hendricks as a candidate for President, "subject to the decision of the National Demoeratio Convention." Than this illustrious statesman there is no better Democrat, no nobler man, no nobler patriot. The Sentinel remarks, in submitting hi? claims for the nomination, that it takes no new departure in policy, but merely empha sizes the fact that tbo Indiana Democracy, with scarcely a dissenting voice, prefer Mr. Hendricks to any other distinguished Demo crat whoso name has been coupled with the high offioo in question. Our cotemporary undeniably reflects the overwhelming sentiment of the party in In diana. No citizen of that State ever sur passed Mr. Hendricks in personal popularity. None has been more highly regarded for his public or private virtues. If the possession of such qualities of heart and mind as he is acknowledged to have were to be the con trolling consideration iu the choice of a can didate, there is not one in the ranks of Demoeratio statesmen to-day who would stand a better chaoce to achievo the honors of a nomination. We welcome Indiana's favorite son to the field. The time has arrived to consider the relative strength and fitmss of candidates, and it is proper that ono who has been so long identified with Demoeratio success should early engage the thoughts of those who sinceroly believe that the future welfare of the country is dependent on the triumph of Jeffersoniau principles.

The public remembors that a man named Payne was involved with John \\ lilies Booth, in 18G5, in the asia-sination of Presi' j dent Lincoln, and the attempt upon the life of Seoret.ry William If Seward; nor does any one need to bo told of the height to which publio indignation reached in \\ o>h ington city at thai time. At this particular period Major W. F. Hallcuk, of the X_> 11 ited States sej-vice, having in charge two hun dred Confederate prisoners iu^ Washington city, was set upon by a iU'?b who demanded of him the body of one of thc-e, Gen Payne, of the Confederacy, who, it was believed l.y the populace, was the peisan who had stabbed Soward. Major Ilalleck's guard consisted of not more than fiity. lie ap pealed in vain to the mob, assuring it that the Payne who was then his prisoner was not the Payne who had stabbed the Secreta ry. He was not believed, and the lury of the crowd increased, and its determination to have the prisoner became manifest. Order? ing his men to load their jiuns, and prepare for work,Major Hallcek di-Gtntly proclaimed to the mob that those were his prisoners, and it was his purpose to die right thcro with them, before he would surrender one ol them iuto their hands. Ilis guard was pro pared to exccute his orders, and the orders were upon his lips, ready to Tie given the j moment the occasion arose.

In I lie evening cames of winter gather, ings ofyoung people, nod older ones, too, it olten bccjincs ncccssary to punish some, ou? or uiorc, ol tho company by imposing a "Forfeit." The pcuaneo should tic some* thing tliat either is not easy to follow out to tlie letter?that is, has some catch in itf or puts the person in n conspicuous unci amus ing light. In all cases a forleit should ha designed to auiuse the compauy as a whole, and never to offend tho person culled upon to pay it In order to illustrate our idea of a good forfeit, and also to furnish sugges tions to those who enjoy and take part in such pleasant amusements, we givo a few of tho forfeits that may ho imposed. (1) I'ut a uewspapcr upon the floor in such a way that two j crsons can stand on it and not ho able to touch each other with thoir hands 'I his'forleit has the honor of being old, but it was not our good fortuno to meet it until a shrtrt time ago, aud was forced to "give it up." l!.v putting the pspcr in a doorway, one-half inside and tho other half outside of the room, and closing tho door over it, tho two persons can easily stand upou it nod still be beyond each others reach. (2) To go out ot the room with two legs and come in with six. Not d ffieult if oue thinks to bring a chair along on the return. (3) To act the I'umb Servant. The-person who bus the forfeit to pay must act out the answers to the f|iiestions put t;y tho master of tho ceremonies; as. How do you rn.ke bread 7 How do you eat s .up? etc This forfeit will cause much merriment if proper question* sro put. (4) Put ono hand where the other cnnn.it toueh it. One can irct out of this difficulty by putting one hand on tho elbow or the other arm. (5) Place a pen. cil on the floor so that one cannot jump over it. May be done by putting it clone to tho wall of the room. (6 ) Put a cjuestiou that no one can answer with a NO! This is not hard if one thinks to ask. What doe* Y E S spell? (t ) Push a chair through a finger ring. This forfeit is made by putting the ring on the finger and pushing the chair any other object will do as well-with tho finger. Ibis last much resembles the next. (8) Put yourself through a key hole ? This was a creat puzzle to us for awhilo, but when n piece of paper was taken with tho word "yourself" written upon it arid pushed through the hole, it was all clear. There are many other of these amusing little trick.,but these given will suegest others, and help to make the social winter gatherings the en joyable times that they should be.

It bore tho bead of Washington on one side and thirteen links on the other. The French revolution soon created a rage for French ideas in America, which put on the cent instead of the head of Washington the bead of the Giddess of Lib erty,? a French Liberty, with neck thrust forward and flowing locks. The chain on the reverse side wss displaced by the olive wreath of peace ; but the French Liberty was short lived, and so was her portrait on our oent.^ The next head or figure that succeeded thin ? the staid classic dame with a fillet ar<und her hair?came into fashion about thirty ye?ts ago, and her finely chiselled Greoian features- have been but slightly altered by tba lapse of titn6. Treatment of F'rozbn Plants.?la times of severe cold, the m?Sr? tender plants in the window will sometimes be chilled sod frozen. Such plants should not be put near the stove, to be thawed out; but kept where the temperature is a trifle above tfce freezing point that the thawing may bo gradual, and in the dark, that deleterious chemical changes may not take place. If severely touched with the frost, it is best to remove the froz-n parts, that new stems may be forced out from the buda below.
