Mr. Edward Singleton was one day seated in his roora, deeply ruminating upon the un fortunate position of bachelors in general, when a step was heard ascending the stairs and a niom?nt after some one rapped loudly at the door. "Come in." ... The door Bow open, and a young man has tily entered. " Good morning Ned," he cried, seating himself in a chair j "I stopped to inquire if you had received .a card of invitation to old Mowbray's party this evening." "I have/ (f And o? course you will attend." "No." - " Whatf exclaimed the young man in sur prise, " Ned Singleton, the gayest of the gay, refuse to - attend the most brilliant party of the season. Im possible Ned, you arc joking." " I am not." "But what is your motive for denying your self this pleasure." ' .. ? " To be frank with you Harry I have bad quite enough of parties for thc present-what 1 now want is a good wife." His friend gave yent to* hearty laughter, then said, "Tho very reason why you should go to night. ' I "dare bc sworn that among the bril liant throng of you'h and beauty that will be' present, you can readily Gnd one lovely being,' to whose care you would be willing to en trust the keeping of your heart." " True enough ; but whether that particular one could be induced to deliver hc.-s in re turn, over tu thc custody of Ned Singleton, is still a matter of great doubt." " But you would at least make a trial, and if a rcfu-al bc the rcsu't, no harm would be done." "But it would be extreraelv disagreeable, and if you will promise not to reveal it, I will entrust you with a secret." " I will swear it if necessary." 11 Then I have to inform you that during the last three months I have proposed and been refused b}' three dill'ereut ladies." .' Indeed I" exclaimed Harry, laughing in spite of himself, "and what reason did they assign in refusing your (.Uer." "More than 1 can enumerate, but the prin cipal one wasmy want of fortuno-and from that undoubtedly spring all thc rest." '* Then you are determined on staying from the party tonight?" said Harry as he arose io depart. " Most absolutely." K . " And serious in wishing-to obtain a wife?" " 1 never was more serious." .'And havo come tu a'.defiuitc conclusion as to bow j DU will proceed ?," ? No." " Then" replied his friend. ,: i would ad vise jou to advertise," and with a joyous laugh be left the room. - " And why not?" said Singleton, mentally as the sound of his friend's footsteps died a fray. " Why not, indeed ? It would bc an ex cellent plan-by Jove. I w?l." And straight way seating himself at his little table, Le suc ceeded ia a .'hort timo in producing the fal lowing: MATRIMONIAL -Tho advertiser, a young man of good moral chnractor and lino attainments, is do sirous of forming a matrimonial alliance with a lady betw. *n nineteen and twenty, four years fit age. .She must be bo.iutiful ?iud accomplished, and possess nn niniublo disposition. Addross E. S., No-, Crescent Place, Bjston. " Then-," soliloquized Neil, as he arose, " I think thaV will do, and sincerely do I hope it will be the means of securing mc'a charming pari ncr for life. For two years I have been ehdeavoring to obtain a wile, but the lack of fortune has been the main obstacle to the realization of ray wishes. True, I have gained access in the very best i society, and rendered myself agreeable to la dies of wealth and fashion; but to this extent j only have I proceeded. They know that I am not the inheritor of riches-that a petty custom house office is all I have-to rely upon. I havo hunted for wealth long enough. I will try and win a heart. And so" he added to his advertisement the following postscript: MOVETOF KO CONSEQUENCE. Our hero immediately sent a copy, to all the evening papers in the city, with direc tions to hnvc it inserted that day. About two r?clock next dayythe postman brought nearly a dozen notes directed to Mr. K. S3 ; ? Ned, who had been waiting with feveri?b impatience, hastened at once to his room, and . with a llutteiiog heart was. about to break one of the seals, when a servant informed him that a lady was below who requested an interview. This was most annoying at such a moment, and bc had at first harbored serious intentions of turning her off without an audience, but hisgallantry came to his aid before he bad given the order, and he accordingly told him to show her up. With a sigh be sank into a -seat, laying the unopened letters on thc table. Presently the servant returned, ushering in a lady who was closely veiled. Singleton of fered her a seat, and politely inquired the ob ject of her visit. " I believe"' she said, in a tone of singulai sweetness, " you are thc gentleman who ad vertised for a- wife." " I am," he replied. May I inquire if you have selected one?' " I have not, but have just received a num ber of communications in reply to the adver tisement," and he pointed at the pile of let tera before him. " Then I have arrived in time. I come tc offer you myself." Edward Singleton trembled violently at th? announcement. Ho had not anticipated sucl a summary modo of operation, nnd eonse quently he became greatly embarrassed. The form of his fair visitor struck him a graceful and faultless, and when in a momen after she raised her veil, be was literall struck dumb by her exceeding beauty. A pair of the brightest azure eyes beame on him from beneath, their loDg d?licat lashes, and a few stray, curls of silken hai fell upon either check as she leaned forwarc giving a bewitching appearance to her cout tetiance, while the perfect beauly of herfaci opon which he gazed with a look of open at miration, sent a thrill to his' heart that he he never before experienced. For a moment, t ! seemed as if entranced j but the truth ally broke upon him-ho waa in love. " And have you really- come to offe selij?' ;he exclaimed; "are you ij earnest?" '. Why should you doubt it?" she sai a captivating smile. Iinow not, but indeed Thad notes to have so lovely-" ''Stop, stop, sir-no flattery if you p '?'But I clo not flatter-I speak the when I say you are tho moat beautiful c sexi" ^Enough,5' she ?aid- with another wh?jh translated ?Med iuto the seventh h "d? I suit you?" ' .^Perfectly! and you will not hesit majry me?" ij Not fora moment, otherwise I shot have come." Ked Singleton sprang from hid seal thorite pf unopened letters and cast thor tbgilames. Then he caught her in hu ant?gave her a hearty kiss, and as Rho si inclined to favor the proceeding, he rej. it several times, till finally out of brea resabed his seat. *I presume you have a desire to leai name," she remarked as she handed card. " .. . M The idea had not entered my mind < to the matter of greater consequence," ri Ned laughing. 11 However, he took thi anj.read: 'Mrs. Grace Elwood.'" j Me turned pale, and glanced from the 'to'ihe lady. .jWhat is the matter-aro you ill?1 asl&d, half rising. ' fNo, not ill," ho said, "but what n thif?" ?nd he pointed lo the word 'Mrs. -^Pardon me fbr not explaining bei sheisaid, hnsiily ; " I had quit? forgos infirm you thai I iva* a widow."

Thc Radicals Furious. Our telegraphic news of yesterday says : *'* Gold closed steadily at forty. It is said that Secretary McCullough threw $:5,000.00O on the market to prevent a panic." This is the result of "Congressional action within five days. After the late elections jnthe North, it was .reasonable to expect, that moderation.woi?ld j.characterize thc proceedin/s of Congress on I its reassembling. But like the Bourbons, the Radicals *eem to learn nothing and to know nothing, from their adversities. They open Congress with a report from the Judiciary I Committee recommending an impeachment of I the President. , They follow this up,.with a bill providing for. his removal from his hij-li office, before bis conviction. No sign is given of receding from their reconstruction policy, whereby thc negro is to be given dominion in the South. On the contrary, Thaddeus Ste vens is busy cutting up Texas into four-States, to make votes for tho Radical party iu the approjching Presidential election, after being negroized. The peace and commerce of the country is thus unsettled . and distrust as to the future, is not allayed. . A good deal of this policy, may bo mere bravado. They wish to show an undivided front to the terrible political disasters which .have lately broken their power at the North ; but the great motive is, to divert tho atten tion of the peopl" from their unpopular evil doings to the more popular antagonism with thc President. At the late elections Messrs. Colfax, Logan and other Radical orators, filled the ears of the people with the misdeeds and treachery 'jf President Johnson. They tried to turn the elections in their favou:.-, by agitating hfs.impeachment, whilst, they avoid ed the despotism iht-y bad put over tho South, ami be war of races they were urging ? through ut the (Juued States, with-all the cou fusion and ruin lo commerce such a policy must produce. They tailed before t?e people to make this diversion successful ; but rhey are now. practicing it in Congress. The coun try wau ts repose. A hearty, real union i* its hope of salvation from financial and connncr cial convulsion. Yet here-'hey are. still agi tating and threatening' collision and viol ince 'in'the government. They would delight to morrow in an appeal to arms. War and blood are thc natural elements of their existence peace and order, their natural foes. But can such a policy-be sustained by "Con gress? It is difficult to anticipate any thing of such a party,-the heated dross ol' tho boiliug passions of the North. Bm the late election? carnot be mistaken in their ?Urnifi cancy. If this policy .stops short of. violence and revolution, when men may ba made drunk with strife-it must contribute to their ruin. Merely to keep the country unsettled and alarmed, and thus to add lei ihe.tremendous embarrassment?, they havo airead}* produced, caniiot arrest th? decline of their popularity. It will only bo .' heaping up wrath for I he day of wrath," alienation will become hate,-dis approbation, curses; And however popular.' iii himself, tbc-ir candidate for the Presidency may be, the interests of the country-th j life of the country, may make the personal popu larity of any.ma?, uf not a feather's weight, in -fettling iho-?cale^of-power. The course of things in the Southern States, will not al low them to keep in tho back ground, the groat principle on which they; have leen de teated-thal these Stutts sliall be nUtd by the whitt race. - . Their scheme of ruling them by negroes, is already disclo?ir.g it s. repulsive folly-or more repulsive dangers.' Even the negroes of South Carolina seem lo reject it; whilst the whole, white-race of tho South ararap?dly gathering, from race affinity, into one immovable mass of stern opposition. Unless they invent in Congress new tyrannies by new device?, to force the negro over the white man by the sword, their t?'c?qstructioa of the South will be au utter failure. Ai d can going on with nev;, tyrannies over the South help them ?

Jmi<.-c Agnow, in announcing eis decision, considered the rights of thc com pany ns a common carrier, the preferences of | the public, and thc lawH and customs of the Sia'.e, summing up as follows : '! lt. is clear, therefore, that under thc Con stitution and laws the white and black puces stand in a -separate relation to each other. We ii nd i be same differences- in the institu tions and custom's"'of the States. NeverTias lhere '>..e:n an intermixture of the two races, socially, religiously, civilly, or politically. By umi-lccrupted usage the blacks live apirt. visit and eoteuaic amone themselves, occupy dil ferent places <>i public worship and amuse ment, and Hil no ci vi I "or political sta'i >ns, not even sitting to decide their' own causes! In fact, there is notan institution of tho State in which they have, mingled indiscriminately with the whites. Even the common school law provides Tfor separate schools when their number is adequate. In thy military service,, als), il?:y were :iol.intcrmixcd with -yililasol diers, but were separated into companies and regiments ot color, and that not by wry of disparagement, but from motives of wisdom and prudence,' to avoid the antagonism' 'd'.va riant ?nd unmisable raes.

A colored family working o:i the same'plantation, snperior in force to tho above, made 20,bushels, corn, a ligbt'balt? cf cotton, 10 bushels rico, and other articles ot produce in proportion. .

Another' gentleman of the same section, who is one of our best practical planters, with 3 white laborers, and'one or two half hand? made a crop fully equal in every respect to that of. 30 colored working hands on tlc .sam? ground in former seasons. Another friend of ors, in another-part c f the Fork, with 3 plow hands and 3 hoehance -all white-made 500 pounds indigo,2 bales cotton, 550 bushels corn, 150 bushels ?efe, 50 bushels rice, S?0 gallons syrup, run agni", mill for the benefit of himself and neighbor.--, made pinners and potatoes in abundance, re alized ?100 from the sale of water melons, all on lands counted poor. We like this sys tem of agriculture; our people must no lon ger trust to making money out oj" one leading staple ; they must pay their attention to di versity of crop^ au<l make each co atributo its quota to the profits of thc year. This ia tho ot: ly system of planting that will pay iu these days on our average lands. ?--? ? *??- ? THE RIVALS OJ SOUTHERN COTTON.-Tlc editor of the Wilmington Star has had an op portunity to examine thc samples sent /rem New York of cotton grown in Peru, aiitltbc East and West Ibdiea. - That from the Weet indies was remarkably fine, the staple berre as fong, and the texture as fine, as our Amer ic?n Sea Island Cotton. Tho sample fe-ru Peru,'while not so good as the former,, wai superior to any Upland Cotton. Tho body was very superior, being very similar to woo.', 'both to the eye and touch ; the staple was net so long asthaSea Island, but combined grc.u strength and elasticity, and tho sample gave evidence of careful ginning. The specimens from thc East Indies were inferior to. ,tbo others, and much below our good America'! Uplands. The^ilor was not good, the sta ple nothing to boast of, and there vms an ab sence of the careful preparation observable in the Peruvian, the cotton being full of frag m'ents of leaves and the inner coating of the pods. There was a remarkable absence of sand or dust ia all the samples, but this wes possibly owing, to the frequent handling to which they have been subjected.
