Payn has just concluded the Usk of walking one hundred miles in twcnty-thre« hours, twenty-nino minutes and fifty-seven seconds. The Cincinnati Gazette, good and strong Republican authority, has at last discov ered that the Freedmen's Bureau is not so much a means of protection to the blacks as it haa been made a source of enormous plunder for the profit of indi viduals. The British Government has submitted olaims to onr Government, amounting to $45 .1)00,000, as an offset to our Alabama claims. These claims are made up of alleged damages sustained by British sub' jects at the South during the rebellion. Good authorities state that the prospects look favorable to a large business in the Wisconsin lumber woods this winter, hut not equal to that of last year. Prices paid to choppers are about the eaB»e. "Without actually held by the legs lifted up and down in the water three times—this makes picking easy. The feathers should be at once removed, pin feathers and all very cleanly, and without breaking the skin. It should next be 'plumped,' by being dipped about two seconds into water nearly or quite boiling hot, and then at once into cold water, about the same length of time. Most of the dressed poultry sold here is wet picked, and 6uch is generally preferred. But very fat, handsome turkeys, dry-picked, sell well at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Great care should be taken to avoid cut« ting or bruising the flesh or breaking the bones. It should be entirely cold, but not frozen, before being packed. This is a matter of importance for, if packed with the animal heat in it, it will be most sure to spoil. If it reaches the market sound without freezing, it will sell all the better. In packing, when practicable, use hand threshed dry straw be sure thnt it is clean, tree from dust of any kind and entirely dry. Place a layer of straw at the bottom, then alternate layers of poul try and straw, taking care to stow snugly, backs upward, legs under the body, filling vacancies with straw, and filling the pack ages 80 that the cover will draw down very snugly upon the contents, to prevent shifting or shucking on the way. The ob jection to barrels is that the fowls are apt to be much bent and twisted out of shape they answer better for chickens and ducks than for turkeys and geese. Straw should be between the poultry and the sides of the packages to keep them from freezing, though in very cold weather this cannot always be avoided. In packing large lots, it is best to put the different kinds in separate packages, and Kark the kind on the cover. Wild turkeys, wild ducks, and the smal ler birds should be packed in the natural state. Grouse or prairie chickens, wood cock and quail, when the weather is cool, reach us in better order and sell more rapidly when wrapped in paper, their feathers first being laid smoothly in their placcs. Grouse, when shot, should be hung up by their feet, so that the blood may run out at their mouth. If the weather is very cold, so as to freeze at once, it is better to 6troke the feathers down smoothly and hang the birds up by the nock. All animal heat should be out of them before packing press tiicm firm ly into the package: two hundred pounds may thus be packed into a common Hour barrel. The freight on trapped birds is no more than others, and those shot or otherwise mutilated, not only bring a low price, but arc apt to spoil, and by their more rapid decomposition cause the others to smell badly, thus injuring those they are packed with more than the value of the mutilated birds. If they are sent they should be put in separate packages. In warm weather ice must be used in tho package to insure the contents arriving sound." Spurgeon on Total Abstinence* At a recent meeting of Baptist ministers in England t» consider thesubjcct of total abstinence. Mr. Spurgeon expressed him self as follows on the subject: ''I may be allowed for a moment to be slightly egotistical, and say what is my position here. It may be the position of oae or two others. I may illustrate it from my brother's case. Some two j'ears ago he was avowed teetotaller some nine months he was consistent to his pledge, but again and again he found from time to time that he was literally failing, aud one day, so close was he to the verge of the grave, that I said: 'Young man, there was one who went to heaven in a chariot of fire, but there is no reason that you should go in one of water,' and I went myself and fetched a glass of wine whic enabled him to finish his day's work. He said, 'What more is to be done?' I said, 'I will tell you my own experience. I tried conscientiously to be a teetotaller for nine months myself, but I found I was obliged to give it up, at least I thought so, and determined to take what I did take in secret. 1 bought some wine and souie medicine glasses, and I think for a year I drank no wino but out of a medicine glass and with a locked door. But, of course, it leaked out, and I found that I was doing more harm than by open drinking. I found some had £Ot a habit of secret drinking. I found some had got a habit of secrect drinking who wero confirming themselves in what I was doing, so I put the medicine glass on one side, that no one should say I was ashamed of doing publicly what 1 did in private.'"

The first article provides for the settlement of all claims which have arisen Letween the two govt ernments since tho convention of 1853. The second article provides expressly for the settlement of what are known as the Alabama claims, and proposes the forma tion of a joint commission, cach govern' ment to appoint two members, who shall sit in Washington and determine the character, legality and amount of claims. Any question which is not decided unanU mously by the commissioners, is to be submitted to an arbitrator agreed upon by the two governments. This is a brifef outline of the proposition as submitted. It lis undoubted that it is not entirely satisfatory to Mr. Seward. A well-known wealthy Parisian has had himself paiuted, by an eminent artist, "as he was," "as ho is," and "as he wiil be." "As ho was," represents him at the age of twenty-five, a poor devil in ragged garments, with his toes peeping through holes in his shoes, slinking, half famished, by the side of a wall. "As he in,1' figures him lat and jolly as an alderman, well dressed, with gold chains decking his waist coat, and diamond rings blazing on his fingers. And, in "As he will be," ho is made a rotting, hideous corpse. Not tho least singular feature of such a singular freak, is the fact that he has the paintings hung in his drawing rocrn. OMAHA, Dec. 3.—The temporary bridge across the Missouri river at this place, constructed by the Union Pacific Railroad Company, was completed ou Tuesday eve ning, and 100 cars crossed over yesterday.

If the head be taken off first, t'.10 conspicious for vaccilation. Eight so-called greenback theory, and du- 1'nS presenting a repulsive feature. Most of recanted. If he is now about to propose he poultry sold here has the head on, and and advocate such a measure as that de Ibis is best when the process of the killing scribed in the telegram, bis renunciation has not injured the arrcarance of the head. When it is preferred to remove the head, it should be taken off at the throat, the •kin pealed back a little, and a portion of the Presidential canvass he publicly must have been a mere political dodge, a feigned surrender of his principles,—to promote the success of his party." In the first place, I do not intend to in- ireenbacks. No speech by me to that effect has been made. What 1 urged during the canvass was, that the first duty of the government was to return to specie payments, which, when accomplished, would" settle a'l questions as to this mode of pacing the bonds. I further urged that the government had no right to issue new legal-tender notes, and make them applicable to the pay ment of bonds, arguing that such notes could not be made to sustain the same re lations to the bonds in law or equity that was suitained by the existing notes, and that the further issue of such notes would irdefinitely postpone the return to specie payments. These propositions were fully stated in my speech, in the senate, last summer, in which I argued the legal right of the government to use the existing legal tender notes in the payment of the bonds. I also argued, at various times during the canvass that whatever might bo the law on the subject, the government could not pay the bonds, or any considerable portion of the coin, while the currency remained de preciated, aud that the improvement oftho currency, by bringing it up to par, was a necessary condition precedent to the pay ment of tho bonds in gold that if the goV ernment could not procure gold enough to redeem $305,000,000 of legal-tender notes, it was folly to talk about paying the bonds in gold, that the question of the mode of paying the bonds will become important «nly by the continuance of a depraved currency, without taking steps to improve it that to take the surplus gold in the treasury and apply it to the purchase of bonds in the market, which will not fall due for fourteen years, would not be pay ing the bondsj but shaving them, and would be an improper use of means by which the paper of the government, over-duo and dishonored, should be re deemed. These positions are inconsistent with anything said in the senate. I am| T«ry respectfully, Yours. O. P.

Tho Alabama Treaty. World con tains the following letter from Senator rass rocant :ard to the Moarox. CHITRCII SCANDAL.—It is ieported that a lady member of one of the New York churches, a littlo too gay to be satisfactory to her associates, was tried before the church and cut off for breach of covenant. The husband, feeling grieved, has com menced a suit in the court for libel and slander, and lays the damages at §5,000. This suggests to a New \rork correspond ent sundry questions: ''Can a church deciplinc its members without having the fear of the courts be fore its eyes? Can a church be sued for cutting members off for a breach of dis cipline? Is it sladder to turn a man or woman out of church Can parties who conduct a trial according to the customs of a denomination be compelled to disclose what was said or done in a church meet ing Are not such communications all privileged The terms of the protocol for the settlement of our claims against Great llntain, whieh was recently received by the i-tate Department at Washington, have at last transpired with sufficient definite— ness to enable us to understood the cbar* actor of the proposed treaty. It eonaivts of three articles, which are in substance a* follows Article first provides for the general settlement of nil claims between the two governments which have arisen since tho Conventiuu of 1*153. Artii-le teeond provides especially for the settlement of the claim against Great Britain by this Government, known in tho diplomatic correspondence of the last three years as the "Alabama olaims." Article third provides for the appoint ment of a Joint Commission of four persons, two to be selected by each Gov* ernment, tvho shall sit in Washington to decide upon the validity of these claims, a,nc^ ^H0 rr°videa that in case tho Commission does not unanimously agree on any of the questions submitted to it, such questions shall be referred to the af— biration of some potentate not specifically designated, except that he shall be friend ly, cr in other words, at peace with both England and the United States. Those who have watched the progress of the negotiations on this subject will bo surprised to observe that this protocol waives the question of England's respon sibility in recognizirg the Southern Con federacy as a lawful belligerent. It was precisely on this point thut Mr. Seward most insisted during bis entire correspon dence with Lord Stanly, and it was because the English Foreign Secretary refused to submit this question to adjudi cation thst no settlement was arrived at. That Mr. Reverdy Johnson should now subscribe to a treaty in which this rii&tiet is entirely ignored, is rather remarkable— though that venerablo and gastronomio gentleman has taken the edge off our sur» prise by many other actions quits as unaccountable. But quite as objectionable a feature in this protocol is the first article, which gives the precedence to any claims which tho British Government may produce against this country. The effect of this would simply be that if an English sub ject. lesiding in the South, and engaged, perhaps, in manufacturing munitions of war fur the rebels, id his establishment seized or destroyed by our scldiers, he could prove his damages, and collect tlia same of the Government—and this before the Alabama claims wero reached at all. It is stated that tho British Legation has been engaged for some time past in secur ing evidence of such chums, and has suc ceeded in making up a bill of about fifty millions of dollars, an amount which probably exceeds the aggregate of our demands for 1 ssos inflicted by English privateers. And to show nutre clearly how utterly absurd this would be, while we were thus reimbursing rebel sympa thizers—o*ir laws forbid the payment of the claims of loyal American citizens nt the South for their looses during the war. In short, this protocol is a legitimate sequence of Mr. Johnson's whole course in England, and shows that he should bo called home at once, before no has an opportunity to do further mischief. It is not to be supposed that the treaty will oven be accepted bv the State Department, and it certainly will not be ratified by tho Senate. IMPORTANT DECISIONS IN BANKRUPTCY.— Judge Swayne, in the United States Cir» cuit Court, northern district of Ohio, has dccided in the ease of John C. Neal, ia bankruptcy, as follows 1. l'rnpcrty fraudulently disposed of by a bankrupt in proceedings by or against him may be recovered by the assignee upon petition in the bankrupt court, pro ceedings upon whieb may be of a summary character. 2. The district judge may order issues of fact arising in such caecs to be tried by jury. 3. Suits mny be brought at common lotr or by bill iu equity for toe securing of property in such cases, but as they must be governed by the technical rules, and bo subject to the delays incident thereto, it jfl preferable to proceed by summary peti tion, auxiliary to the original proceedings in the court of bankruptcy, that being a cheaper, speedier and more simple mode. Another ease of considerable interest to bankrupts has just been decided in United States District Court of Indiana. Tho points are as follows: 1. A failure of fourteen uays to pay commercial paper is not an act of bank* ruptcy unless it is shown that the failure was with fraudulent intent. 2 When a debtor, knowing his estate to le insolvent, permits himself to be insolvent, permits himself to be sued, and knowing that a judgment in such suit will give that condition an advantage over others, he commits an act of bankruptcy, and is bound to seek relief of thr bank rupt act. Neglecting this, he may be ad judged a bankrupt on petition of credit ors. Up to the first day of January next, discharges by the bankrupt law will be, issued without regard to the amount of assets or property surrendered that is, a debtor having no property beyond what the law exempted and allowed him to retain, mi«iht still be relieved of his debts. Upon petitions filed after that date the debts will not be discharged unless at least 50 per cent, of the amount proved shall be paid, or a majority of the creditors giving their consent in writing.
