AMUSING TuINGS.-It is highly amusing to
hear a man, who twenty years ago used to tie up
his apprentices in his cellar and horsewhi them
for some slight offence, now say the galows is
tcb good for the very best slaveholder in America.
It is amusing to hear a gray-headed old man,
who amassed his fortune in his younger days, by
keeing a tiggling shop, now say he would, had
he te power, imprison any manon whose premi
ses a drop of the poison could be found.
It is amusing to hear an old deacon, who has
the faculty to pile up his wood for the market so
that seven feetwill measure a cord, propose to
expel a young grocer because he sold him thirty
one ounces of sugar for two pounds.
It is amusing to hear a member of the church,
who, in youth, sowed his wild oats by the bushel,
propose that the church investigate the circum
stances under which Brother Jopes calls on Sis
ter Smith so often, innocently forgetting all-the
while that "it takes a rogue to catch a rogus."
It is amusing tohear a man who made his first
ten thousand by a mere accident in speculation,
now whine over the want of business tact in the
young men of the present day.
It is amusing to hear a hardened old politi
cian, whole litical conscience is so tough that
you can ma e no impression whatever upon it
with the sharpest axe of honor to be found, sigh.
with pious borror over the want of principle in
those who oppose hid political creed.
"it is amusing tohear a man, who has just brain
enough to believe his wisdom and intelligence is
actually needed to help society along, prate
about the weakness of woman's mind. You can
see at once how strong his own must be, but
cannot help wishing he had a little more power
Qf discernment, that would enable him "to see
bimsolf as others see him."
TEE EAJUAS IGIBLATURz-GOV. GEARY.
The Legislature of Kansas convened on the
12th inst. Gov. Geary pent in his mensage after
the Legislature was organized. We have not
seen a copy of it. TheSt. Louis News furnih.
es the following synopsis:
"The Governor calls the attention of the
Legislatfve Assenmbly to errors and omission in
tbeetatue.book, the result of hasty legislation,
and teommends that they be corrected. He
Insists on the right of the people to elect all
their offieers, instead of having them appointed
by the Legislature. The famons, or, rather in
famous, test tiath act, so odious to the free State
men of the Territory, is emphatically denonneed
by tihe Governor, and Its repeal recommended
Abolition of the viva t'oce system of voting, and
the adoption of the ballot plan, is urgently in.
aisted on. The present mode of selecting jurors
by the Marshal, Sheriff, and Constable, i., dimap.
yroved by his Excellency, and their selection by
lot recommended. The law in reference to " pa.
tress," levying a tax on all other property for
the especial protection of slave property, is ree
osamended 'for repeaL The establishment of a
thorough school system is suggested.
The scheme of a railroad running from the
Territory, southward, through the Indian ,Terri
tory and Texas, to the Gulf of Mexico, is sug
gested as the shortest and best route to the sea
board. The Governor says that he has suggeit
ed to Congress the jqstice of indemnifying the
- eitizens of the Territory for thme damages they
* sustained during the late troubles. He is in fa
vor of securing to every citizen a homestead ol
160 acres of land. The expediency of erecting
a penitenitiary has been brought before Congress.
* A petition to Congress for an appropriation
to improve the navigation of thme Kansais river ;
a geological survey of the Territory ; thme ec
tab.lishment of two more ad officees -to facili
tale the di~posal of the public domain; the spee
dy extinguishment of the Indian title to lands
In the Territory-are measures commended to
the consideration of Congress and the Territo
rial Legislature respectively.
..- A WAxNERNG Jrw IN Nsw YO~t.-A sensa
.tion was created in William street, New York,
on Tuesday morning, by the appearance of a
man on the pave with a long floating beard, and
dressed in loose pantaloons, with a turban on his
head. He carried in his hand a little manuscript
.Hebrew book, out of which he read to the crowd
thatgathered around him. Herepresented himself
as the veritable Wandering Jew ! Nobody knows
vho he is or where he came from. A learned
Jewish Rabbi was sent for to converse with him,
which they did in the Hebrew language, and the
stranger was foundto be perfect in hisiknowledge
of that most difficult tongue. The Rabbi tented
him in Aricl, in Phenician and in the Sanserit,
but soon found that the aged stranger far sur
passed him in intimacy with them alL. The
Rabbi invited him to ham house ;but, said die
stranger, "nay I cannot stop. The Crucified
one of Calvary has pronounced the edict, and I
may not rest. I must move on." He was last
aeon on Thursday, but to where he has departed
no one can telL.
CIUUNAVZGATING THU WoRLD.-Senators S.
ward of NeWr York, and Rusk of Texas, will, on
the expiration of the session, start on a nine
months' tour round the globe. They will pass
across the Isthmus by Nicaragua, thence to Cali
fornia, thence to die Sandwich Islands, (where
Senator Seward will deliver an agricultural ad
dress,) thence to China, and after passing through
India and Asia Minor, Egypt, and possibly South
ern Europe, will sail through the Straits of Gi
braltar to the United States so as to attend Con
gress in the early part of next session.
A GOOD ExcesE.-A man has declined being
a candidate for otliee in one of the new States
because he is not a legal citizen ; has never paid
a tax or any other debt ; owns no property; can't
read nor write; is blind ;has but one leg; has
lost four fingers from his left hand; has ten cil
dren, and can't leave home for fear they will
-abuse their mother.
DsarasiNG gUzcID .-A ltter from Jeffer
son, N. C., dated the 11th ultimo, says the Wil
ingjton Comerciat, states that Miss Selina
Hovell, aged 13, daughter of A mos Howell, of
that place, committed suicide by hanging herself
in the barn. She went out in her usual good hu
mor, and being asked where she was going, said,
" you will find out some time." Some time elni.
sing before her return, her parents went out to
hunt for her, and found Miss H., hung by the
neck to a beam in the barn, quite dead. No
casum. is given for this fatal act, committed by
one so young. __
A CURE FoR SCARLET Fuvaa.-A correspon
dent of the New York Evening Post says the fol
lowing is a very simple and efficacious remedy
for the terrible soreness and ulcerati-on of the
mouth and throat in-aggravated cases of scarlet
fever: " Take equal quantity of honey andsweet
oil-both should be pure-say one table spoonful
of each, or one tea-spoonful; heat it on a sheet
of glaced letter-papr over a spirit or fiuid lamp,
and give the ptent, as hot as it can be taken.
It can do no hrm, and has in somecases, where
the collection of mucus in the throat and mouth
salmost produced suffocation, saved the patient's
life."
RAnLRADaS.-The total number of miles of
railway now completed in the United States is
d,199!
THE MiRY REESIDE CASE It oCNGRES.-This
natter, Io which alusion has been frequently
unade recently, consists of a bill from the House
f Representatives for the relief of Mary Ree.
side. This bill proposes to pay Mrs. Reeside
Lbout $180,OO0, being the balance due from the
govervment-to her late husband for his services
in carrying the mails, with interest thereon from
December, 1841. The ease has been before
Congress for twelve or fifteen years, and the
bill. now before the Senate was reported by the
Court of Cl.iimm, and has received the sanction
of the Hi-ouse of Representstives. A long dis.
:ussion tok plawe in the U. S. Senate last week
on the claim, ir, which Messrs. Bigler, Fessen.
den, Hale, Adams, Rusk, Weller, Wade, and
others, contended that the amount was jnstly
due and ought to be paid; while Messrs. Hun.
ter, Toonbs. Bayard, Toucey and Stuart, denied
that the indebtedness of the government was
conclusively shown, and protested against im
plicitly relying on the decision of- the Court of
Claims. The bill was passed for giving the
grant without interest.-Sav. Geo. 20
A writerin the London Lancet says that if
ersons who are addicted to sprees will, when
they feel the periodical appetite coming on, take
half a drachin of ipecac and vomit, they will
lose the appetite for the time entirely; and if
they follow up the emetic plan will cure them
elves of the habit. When the intense desire for
alcoholic stimulants comes on, the stomach is at
fault; evacuate it, and the desire is removed.
Mrs. Nicholas Campbell, of the Notch, near
Paterson, New Jersey, who was bitten by a cat
ome three months since, died on Tuesday in a
horribly raving state, from hydrophobia. She
id not suffer any inconvenience till about a
month ago, since which she has endured much
agony. At times she has been sensible of her
condition, and at other times raving mad. During
the past four weeks she has eaten but a small
quantity of food, and even that was lapped up
s if by a cat.
Es:'oaassa A BANK Bj.T.-A gentleman
writes to the Hartford Courant that about a year
ago, while engaged in counting over money, he
carelessly put his name upon the back of a $20
bill. A son of Erin camne into his office ~a few
days since with the bill, and said lie had come
from East Hartford to get gold from the endor
er. The gentleman looked in the bank note
reporter and found the bank had suspended pay
ment, and was obliged to give the man a good
bill for it.

to their very complete and extensive Establishment in Augusta, Ga., for the accommodation
of NEGROES requiring SURGICAL OPERATIONS or TREATMENT IN CHRONIC
DISEASES.
The Building is siluated corner of Jackson and Fenwick Streets, between the Georgia and
the Savannah Rail Road Depots; and in sight of both. It is therefore convenient for the recep
tion of patienta from a distance. In its construction, throughout the entire plan, was kept in
view the special purpose to which it is applied; being rfurnished with everything which can
onduce to the CObFORT OF THE SICK. It is supplied with hot and cold baths and shower
baths-and has water-closets in each story to avoid fatigue and exposure to the patients. It is
also wel ventilated and lighted with gas. With the constant attendance of experienced male
and female nurses, tae patient will be saved much of the suffering which too often is the result
of unavoidable neglect in the treatment of NEGROES in ordinary private practice.
TERMS-For Board, Lodging and Nursing, per month, $10. For all NECESSARY Medical
attendance, Surgical Operations, &.c., the same as in ordinary city practice.
