. Virus's Candidal r*. Ik , a -.F • ' jt $ Soon after the first in#muratioo efpov eruor Seward a* Chief Magistrate erf this Slate, Virus Smith, thee and for ma«y years afterward a potential man in the Whig party ef Onondaga County, wrote to Mr. thurlow Weed, requesting him to call upon the Governor, and ask bha to appoint a certain man as Indian Agent for the Onendaga tribe of Indians. The per son recommended by Mr. Smith wee well knows ta Mr Waed us oue of those Tussy, lueddleaomc, maladroit, pestilent fellows, nuisances to any party, whose only power is à power for miichiuf. He was there fore surprised at Mr. Smith's urging him fer the position, and thought it could only have been done through iguoranco of his character or miarepreaeatatioo en the part of others. Mr. Weed accordingly replied, expressing regret at Mr. Smith's request, in view of the objectionable character of th candidate, and begging him to suggest a moro acceptable name. Next day Mr. Weed mentioned the matter t( t'ie Gov ernor (Who was equally cognisant of the niau's chars :ter),an 1 remarked that he had answered the letter, and the action for the pr sent would be delayed. It was thought that this would bring Mr. Smith to Al bany to lock after tho matter, as it did. On arriving bo promptly called upon Mr. Waed, who expostulated with him as to tbè character of his candidate. "Nev4 theless," he said, "ifyou make it a point that he must have the place, why, have te. it he must." "Wall, Mr. W*«d, I ant very anxious about it ?" "Rut yoa know wlist a bad fellow ho is? "Can't holp it ; bo'* my man." Bat eaa't yoa giro some reason for your urgency ?" "No," replied Mr. Smith; "I do not care te do that." "But the Governor thinks badly of this fellow and oertaiuly some explanation is due to him. "Well, it's something I don't wish to talk about." ••Why?" "Do you really wish to know ?" "Certainly." "Then, if you insist upon it, I'll tell you. You know there are among the OnoBdagas two parties, the Christains and thaTagans ?" "I am aware of it." A ries One ica. are ed "Wall, my man is a Icctlc in f&var of th* Christians. Th* pagans bave found that out, and what is more, they bate agraed among themselves that the Moment he comas among them they'll kill him!" "Virus," ss he was popularly called in Onondaga, finally concluded, in the inter est of humanity, to withdraw his candi date, and there was no assaisination by the pagans *f Onondaga. -Editor's Draw er, in Harper s Magazine for February. Quoted in Full. Yon baas no doubt heard the story of the Chinaman who, in making a new pair af breeches for the American captain, with an old pair for a pattern, followed his copy ■o literally as to reproduoaa stitch rent and two patches. Bat the ludicrausness ef the imitation waa entirely thrown into the shade by the mistake of an hencst, literal ■errent who bad taken the job of finishing tha itoae work of a now church in Briers port. The presiding clergyman of the parish was chairman of the committee ornamentation, and it was decided that a ■uitable quotation ef Holy Writ be grav ened upon the capstone of the portal over the main entrance. In accordance there with the workman waa directed to carve upon tho stene the sentence—"My House aball be called the House of Prayer." The acknowledged hie literary deficiency, and in order that hd might make take, ha asked for an exact copy of what was wanted. ^ is ed OD roan do mie Tho clergyman being in somewhat of a burry, aid having a small pocket Testament with him, took it out, and opened to tke twenty-first chapter of Matthew, and pointing to the thirteenth ▼erie, he said :— "Thsre, my man, you hava it just as we want it." Tbs oraftsman took tho book, and tko clergyman went his way. The dedication af tha church was post poned a wtek to await the finishing of tho esp-stoae. It was done in time, and rais ed to its place, snd the consternation of the good minister and his torapaniomr of tke committee can be better imagined than described, upon beholding how literally with a vengeance the workman had oopied the text of Scripture. Commencing at thé point deaignated hy the olergyman, ho had reproduced the whole varia, ao that the jStoue bore upou its faac the startling sen teice ; "MjpHouie zhall-be called the Home of Prayer ; but ye have made it a Den of T hievet !" There was s further postponement of the dedioatory services, and in the end the lower half of the cap-stone was adorned with a net-work of ohiaclling and dipping not contemplated by the original plan.— Ledger. i §cricditak fOR 1874.
