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,

Great care should be taken to avoid cut«

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

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

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
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 draft of the basis of a treaty for
the settlement of the Alabama claims,
agreed upon between Lord Stanley and
Minister Johnson, has been received at
the State Department. 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.

When it is preferred to remove the head,

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-
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,
srave matters aro engaging the attention
of the Tennessee Legislature, as may bo
judged from the character of some bills
introduced November 24th, and which
passed their first reading. One bill for
the benefit of Mrs. Granvillo Lindslay and
others, provides first, that said Mrs.
Lindslay shall receive seventy-five dol
lars annually in consideration of recently
giving birth to three children at one time,
and, secondly, providing for like annuity
to all Tennessee women who ohail iu

tains the following letter from Senator
:ard to the
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
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
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,
^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
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
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
2. The district judge may order issues
of fact arising in such caecs to be tried by
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
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.
