He said he tried the rod in governing his own children, but uses the sugar plum with his grand-children. -Nine Oe rm ana were recently witnesses in a case in Poughkeepsie, N. Y., involving the in? toxicating properties of lager beer, all of whom testified to the constant use of it in quantities varying from twenty to sixty glasses in a day, and one taatified that he had drank eighty glasses without experiencing any intoxicating effect. -In a recent editorial, the London Times denounces the practico, prevalent in England, of adulterating cotton goods, and points out 1 ita disastrous effects upon English credit.

This brought ouithe money; but when the husband returned his ears were on his head, i he ques? tion is, where did the other ears come from ? -A body of one hundred and taonty-five men (Zouaves), enlisted for the defence of the Pope by the Catholics of Montreal, arrived in New York on Friday evening, preparatory to their departure for Europe on Saturday in the Bteamer St. Laurent. There is no truth in the report that Prince Yturbide is among them? Some of the Roman Catholics in New York telegraphed the Zouaves, before leaving Mon? treal, that they would give them a public re? ception if they would accept of it; but the re? ply was that as such a demonstration would be likely to provoke a counter-demonstration, they would prefer to dispense with it. A band of musio was then tendered them, but that, too, was politely declined. -AWashington correspondent says: "One of the younger members of the French Lega? tion has become noted for his gallant speeches and his exquisite compliments. A few eve? nings eince, at a 'german' at Governor Mor? gan's, he was introduced to a witty New York lady, who has an unmistakably ugly flat nose. The polite Frenchman discreetly compliment? ed her on her dancing, to which she archly re? plied : 'Ah I I have heard you are a flatterer; but you cannot find it in your heart to compli? ment me on my personal beauty, so you praise my dancing.' 'Madam,' was the reply, with a Parisian bow, 'you are an angel fallen from Heaven, but you fell on your nose.' The lady narrated this compliment with grout compla? cency, until it was naughtily insinuated that she was 'a fallen angel,' since when she is silent on the subject." -The New York Sun suggests the following i legislation aa a means of preventing railway accidents : For every engine, tender or car ] that shall run off the track im po a o a fine, say of five hundred dollars. For every misplacing 1 of a switch, five hundred dollars. For every ' car that shall upset, one thousand dollars. For < every collision of trains, two thousand dollars. ] For every bi caking through ol a bridge, two thousand dollars. For every person killed, i wo thousand dollars. For every broken hmb or bone, one thousand dollars. For every other injury to the person, not hazarding hfe or hmb, from two hundred and fifty to five hundred dollars. And so on for other accidents and in? juries; tho imposition of these fines not to pre? vent suits by individuals for injuries to theil perrons or property, nor criminal prosecu? tions in appropriate cases, but to be regarded as penalties inflicted on behalf of the public. CHARLESTON. TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 25. 1SG8. Thc First Step. The Rubicon has been crossed. By a strict party vote the House of Representa? tives has resolved to impeach the Presi? dent of high crimes and misdemeanors in office. Before the movement thus begun can be consummated, time must elapse two, three, six weeks, perhaps months. During this period public sentiment will react and make itself felt. Temporary ex? citement will give wny to "the sober, second thought." Representatives of the great oommercial and financial interests of the country will demand that those interests shall not be jeopardized by a political revolution wrought to secure party ends. The Radical wing of the Republican or? ganization may itself be weakened and de? moralized, and shrink from the responsi? bility of completing the task it has begun with so much apparent unanimity. The movements of the Executive have evi? dently not been hasty or ill-advised. Every step in tb? programme has no doubt b-een marked out and anticipated, and we shall bo surprised if the struggle on Mr. JOHN? SON'S part should prove other than a long and close one. The Aluin Question. Mr. PENDLETON, of Ohio, is day by day looming up more prominently before the people as a Presidential candidate, and in? dications are not wanting that the enthusi? astic support he receives in the West will soon be equalled by his popularity in the East. They who desire perennial strife and disoord will not give Mr. PENDLETON their support. They who are bondholders and not tax-payers will not join the green? back league But those who wish well to the whole country, whose pockets are being drained that the purses of the bond-lords may be filled until they burst,-the masses, in fact, as opposed to moneyed-aristoc? racy,-are eagerly watching for the prophet of relief and preparing to give him a warm and hearty welcome. The views cf Mr. PENDLETON on tho na? tional finances have already been noticed in this paper, but, in order that his green? back plan may be generally understood, we give a succinct statement of its principal points. Mr. PENDLETON is of opinion that the United States five-twenties should be paid at maturity, not in gold but in legal tender notes. Seventeen hundred millions of five twenties and bonds which bear interest in currency fall due within the next five years-that is they may then be paid eff at the option of the government, having run five years. To liquidate these bonds, by payment in greenbaokB, would, it might be urged, oause an immense inflation of the ' currency; but Mr. PENDLETON contends that the liquidation oan take place without inflating the currency beyond a safe and just point. Three hundred and thirty-eight millions 1 jf United States bonds lie in tbe Treasury i ns security for three hundred millions of [ national bank paper. This circulation, ac- i cording to Mr. PENDLETON, should be called . in, and the bonds redeemed by legal ten? ters which will take the place of the bank . circulation. This would reduce the inter- f ist bearing debt to fourteen hundred mil? lions, and would save the government , twenty millions of interest. ? The Secretary of the Treasury expects to save forty-eight millions out of current revenue. Add to this the twenty millions saved in interest, and there is a sum of - sixty-eight millions, which converted into . greenbacks at one hundred and forty would give one hundred millions, which sum, an? nually, as a sinking fund, would pay off the j whole debt in fifteen years, without adding one dollar to taxation or the circulating , medium. Thus, the five-twenties could be paid off in greenbacks without inflating the currency, and without touching the ordi? nary revenue or cutting down the enormous : expenditure growing out of Radical legis- 1 latios. But let the reformer be set to work, and the expenses of the government-indepen? dently of interest-be reduced to one hun? dred and fifty millions, and there would be, one hundred and fifty millions for current expenses, one hundred and thirty millions for public interest, and one hundred mil? lions for a sinking fund, making in all three hundred and eighty millions. This, de? ducted from a revenue equivalent to that of 1866, would leave a balance of one hundred and eighty millions, which might be added to the regular sinking fund of one hundred millions. There would then be an annual sinking fund of two hundred and eighty millions, which, in five years, would pay every cent of principal and interest of the public debt, without inflating the currency by one single dollar. After the five years one hundred and fifty millions can be taken off taxation, and there would still bo left the means of meeting the three hundred millions of bonds which fall due in 1874. Then taxation could be con? tracted two hundred millions more, the debt maturing in 1881 could be paid, the greenbacks called in, and the country go back to constitutional currency. This is the plan proposed by Mr. PEN? DLETON, and it is sustained by the great majority who do not hold United States ' bonds but who pay taxes. The debt of the United States is not in many hands. A few thousands of wealthy men are the creditors ? who hold the evidenoes of debt, and many [aillions are the debtors who are deter? mined that the debt shall be paid, but in heir own way and at their own time. The nany will overcome the few, and in the popular mind it is already resolved that Ibe bouda of the Uuitcd States shall be paid off in greenbacks, that (he national banks shall rio longer receive interest on bonds whioh form their basis of circulation, and that, if there must be paper money at all, the greenback is tho best form in which it can bc issued. gi Heit TO I IK N'T, A CO.tlFDKTABliE HOUSE, Ko. 4 Marv-street.
