In a letter to John Jav, Jefferson thus describes the Prince of Wales, afterwards Ircorge I : s He has not a singld clement of mathe matics, of natural or moral philosophy, or of any other science on earth, nor bits the society he has kept been such as to supply the void of education. It lias been that of tho lowest, the most illiter ate and profligate person in the" kingdom, without choice of rank or mind, and with whom tho subject" of conversation arc only horses, drinking matches, bawdy-houses, and in terms the most vulgar. The young nobility who begin associating with him soon leave .him, disgusted by the insupportable! profligacy of his society; and Mr. Fox, who has been supposed his favorite, and not over-nice in the choice of ediripanv, would never keep his company habitu ally. In fact, he never associated with a man of sense. Ho has not a single idea ot justice, morality, religion, or of the rigms oi men, or any anxiety for the opinion oi me woriu. Jio carries that indifference for fame so far that he probably would not bo hurt if he were to lose his throne, provided ho could lie assured of having always meat, horses and women. Many years later he thus gives his im pressions ot the character ot tho reign' tnsr sovereigns of Kurone : While in Europe, I often amused my self in contemplating the then reigning sovereigns of Europe. Louis XVI. was a fool, of my own knowledge, and de spite oi the answers made for him at his trial. The king of Spain was a fool; and of Xaples the same. They passed their lives in hunting, and dispatched two couriers a thousand miles to let each know what game thcr had hilled the preceding days: The "King of Sardinia was a fool. "All these were Bourbons. The Queen of Portunal. a BniAtnr:i. was an idiot by nature: atid so was thd King oi ircninarK. neir sonsi as feirentii. exercised the nower of mirii,nmnt. The King of Prussia, successor" to the great Frederick, was a mere hog in body wen as in mind, bustavus of Sweden and Joseph of Austria were really crazy : and George of England, vou know was - -....,,. waisicoat. mere remains, then, none but old Catharine, who had been too lately picked up to have lost her common sense. In tl.la s,t u. pane lounu turope; and it was this state of its rulers which lost it with scarce a struggle. These aaiBiabj had become without mind and power low and so will every hereditary monarch be after a few generations. Alexander the grandson of Catherine, is yet an excep tion, lie is able to bold his own. Bat be is only the third generation. His race is not yet worn out. And so eadetfe the book of kings, from all of what the ty teat to Geo. Green totcn, only a mile or two T It this repttation .to good that ice can maUjhis count j UK-upon itself the enormous expense of a new election and removal, for the sole and only purpose of making h tin rich ? " Xo I for we nl read v begin to see that there is more selfish ness, more fraud and corruption in this removal of the county seat than we had at first suspected, and living up hero among tho jieoplc who were nt lir,t in favor of the removal, I have a chance to kuow the feelin- a-id I am frank to con fess that I have chamred mv ni-n.l :m.l would not vote fjr tho removal, and I know quite a number who h.ire rlianmt.i hko myself. We do not now think it would benefit the cnu-ity in the least to move the town to Lincoln Center. It would only encourage a s.n of bid men mp gi:i control oi me tmairs ot our coun ty, and for years after we would regret having aided in giving thenl influence and power to control the Cddtity. We are thankful that we had oar t'yes open ed before they had succeeded fit tlccom plishingtheir infamous designs. In justice to Mr. Potter I' will sav that Ire is not really a designedly bad' man, and am sorry to .-('cs" much said ;Hiust him; but siich was the case with " Poor Tray," who was so much abused for keep-' s u.m cviiipaay. roller lias been dup ed into this trouble by thos who are far more t6 blamo that fie. Before closing I would like to say that we will support none but good mJn for office in the election tliis rail. There are quito a number who live in this remote part of the county who arc fully resoly ed upon this, for we know the import ance ot having none but god officers, who will do what is right, and by so do ing it will greatly encourage goo.l, law abiding citizens to come and locale among us; then we shall have many social cn- joj menus win peacaoic ami prosperous times wnicu we can not have it lawless ness prevails. With such a class of peo ple settled with ns, and in control of the offices and influential places in our coun ty, we shall not feel tineasvaliotit our hors es when w; are akep at nigiit. Ve shall not tear any person violating the laws or creating disturbances that destroy the quiet and harmony ff any cu film unit v. Every day this fee'linir to 'let the countu seat alone is growing among the people of uie county, anu wnen it k permanently settled, you will see one of the nicest and best towns growing up in Western Kan sas ; and already we begin to reel that we are to be brothers, not enemies.

CIXCIXXATUS A Weaker ta ftemrr-Beeef m r a wosua I ftataaaj avaiuw an awca scaica M, Last June, a Mrs. Dieguan; living at 194 Carroll street,' Chicago, was assault ed by her divorced Uusbind with a. claw hammer. With one blow he felled her, and then, with a fiendishness almost in conceivable, ho struck her again and again on the head with the hammer, the blood and brains spattering tho floor at i even- blow. Tired at lenzth of t hi- h.. I threw aside the hammer, and with a itiik- of heavy wood broke the left arm ot the unconscious woman, and then strode away, convinced that his venircaiifm .-. glutted, and that he had killed her. Examination showed that the skull was fractured in two places. Tho first was on the left side and near the crown of tho head, where tho hammer had crushed i through, cutting the meningeal artery, scattering the brains o the floor, and leaving an ugly-shaped fissure, through which exuded the brain suUt.iue.. 4 1 about six inces below this uoints itist forward of tho UDDcr iolcofthe Ii-iY or- the hammer shatterim tin- t.tn....,-,i bone, had imbedded itvlf to the handlo in the brain, while littwecn the two wounds an irregular crock, tho result of tine or two blows, extended, ft, .- tIit t sit to these ghastly lracturs; tilt- - ad had been struck in four places by the ham mer, which, in each instance, 'penetrated the'tissues of tile scalp and laid ban fl... skull. Such were the injuries, together with a broken arm, and an ugly flesh wound on the neck, which had leen in flicted upon a slight delicate female whose chances for ever opening her eves again in this world airaiti. seemed, in tli judgment of the various physicians who 3aw the patient, tn be thu r-.itlv of about one in ten thousand. All that humanity could suggest was done for the woman in thu way of dressing her frightful wounds, but it was on the score of hu manity that the attending physician fore- oorc 10 sci inc uroe-en arm t-ira dav or two, She could not live he argmd,and it was needless to subject her to tin op eration. But she did life from hour to hour, from day to day, and, a her sv teni begau to show signs of rail;, iiig, lier medical attendant at once set about as sisting nature in the effort to recover from the shock. In onler to do this the rough edgm and angles of the skull were trimmed off, and the large pices of de tached bone which were imbedded in the brain were "fished out" with the forceps. In performing these operations the beat en track of sur-'erv was ab onioned to the extent of administering ether, it le- ing generally supposed that nmcsthosia cannot be safely or" judiciously produccl in ease of injury to the brain or skull. The plan proved to be eminently suc cessful, and by tho aid or aiucsthetie dressing with t-arbolicacid, the condition of Mrs. Dic'gan improved rapidly. She was attended 13 Dr. U. J. l.euis, who exerted himself to the utmost to assist her as soon as she showed signs of con valescing. She has so far improved that her medical attendant thinks she will in tune recover. There is a partial paraly sis, and an inability to use the vocal or gans, both of which troiilik's it is thought win bo cured in time, or greatly dimin ished. 'I he openings still remain in the skull, and are to be tilled with silver. The case is one of the mot remarkable on record. fMX tlW. Ttle TftlF la rm. Pxau, Oato, Aug. 7, 1871.

"All aliiga'tors have," replied Buck land, "the cayman peculiarly so. The iciiow 1 deserted this morning, and which you have just eaten " There was a general route of guests; every one turned pale. Half a dozen started from the table; two or three tan out of the room, and only those who had stout stomachs remained to tho close of an excellent entertainment. " See what imagination is," said Buck band. If I had told them it was turtle. or" tarrapin, or the gutten of a fish from the maw of a sea bird, they would have pronounced it excellent, and their diges tion would have been none the worse.

The Ohio Statesman has an account of the proceedings before the Probate court of Frankliil county, on an application to adiuitt to probate thu will of Joseph Caldwell, an eccentric Irtelielor. who owned a large amilunt of 11a! estate in Franklin and Belmont countie;, hi.-si.tes other, properly; the 'whole value at SI.iO, 000, or more.' Ho was one of four broth ers. Two years ago he received a sun stroke, which effected his mind, and ap plications was made to the court to ap point a guardian for him, but the physi cians refused to make the neeeeary certMcatv. He afterward went toMisouii 011 business, and thence wandered to New Orleans, where ItiJ was without means. It apcars that while ill New Orleans he made efforts to procure funds from Columbus with which to return home, but from some unaccountable rea son failed. He was arrested in New Orleans as a vagrant on the 26th ot Oc; tober, 1870, and taken before Recorder: Houghton, who ordered him to bo sent to a hospital. The hospital authorities refuted to receive him beciusehc was de ranged, and he was removed to an in- sano asylum, where ho died on the 2d of Uceembcr following. On the 3d ot De cember he was buried at the expense of ure city ui .tew unsanni One of the most curious wills ever made was by an Etulishman, at Mon golian, in 1622, thus quoted in once a Week : " It is my will that any one of ray relations who shall presume to shod tears at my funeral shall be disinherited.

Huron touuty has been visited with a stramrer .1 tnrnrwlo that has not frequented this vicinity for twenty-five years.

And yet another instance, where the shingles on one side or a house, were literally mm from tho roof boards. O110 cannot imagine the wholesale havoc that would have occurred had the storm continued for thirty minutes at the same velocity that it blew at that time, which did not exceed two minutes, every obstruction would have been leveled to the ground. I am pleased to learn that there will lu a tri-weeklv slairo line established between Sali.ia and Wichita (as stated in a letter published in The Journal of the 27th ult.,) via Lake View, a new town in the southern part of McPherson county. Kinu City will have a rival town. There h-is bujn a number of Kim; City hare's taken here, and tho demand is in creasing, It U tod true that McPherson county has received little or no attention from the press, and why is it thus? Is it a drawback that the county did not have a large portion qf.railro-id lands or state school lahds within its limits, as coun ties norili of the Kansas Pacific have been favored with (if favor it is?) As a natural consequence those having lands for sale in those counties north of Salina would necessarily avert the attention of Hransrers trom any other direction than from that in which they were personally interested. An article published in The Journal not long since, gavo Saline county credit for more tillable land than McPherson, which I beg leave to con tradict by a statement that the better critics will not deny. Perhaps the author of the articlo above mentioned was not personally acquainted with McPherson county, but will pardon me when I jog his memory with the follow ing figures, as they nay figures won't lie: McPhersrtn cdunty geographically is thir ty by thirty-six miles, which is co.ua! to one thousmd and eighty square miles, or ix hundred and nim-ty-onc thousmd two hundred acres, trhi'le on tho other hand Saline is twcntv-fotir bv thirtv miles, which is equal to seven 'hundred and twenty sqifare mi!e., or four hun dred and sitxy thousand eight hundred acres, which will leave a balance in favor of tho former county of three hundred and sixty square mile, or two hundred and thirty thousand four hundred acres. And further, I will venture that McPher son county has three hundred thousand acres more of tilhblc laud than Saline county has within its Jiniits. McPherson has no Smoky Hill Buttcs, no Iron Mound, no Soldier Cop, nor has it within its limits a North Pole Mouid, though such is the nature of some of the uplands of Saline county. Tho broken and mo-t uneven land in McPherson county is lying on the so-ith side of the Smoky, near and extending into .Ells worth county. The fertility of its soil is surpassed by none in the State. There is an abundance of lime and sand stone found; also -ome good specimens of coalj which have been pr.monnccd by good critics to Ui of a good quality. streams 01 tnc nnesi living water in the State are tound in 3IcPheron county. Besides thee the Smoky Hill and the Litlc Arkansas have their winding course through the northern and southern limits of the county, The Atchison, Topcka and Santa Fe Railroad, now under con struction, and daily irains running with in a few miles of the eastern line of the' county. And Ie than one j-ear' from this time the road will be completed to Fort Zarah, which is undoubtedly a fact. Tliis road, having duly ten niles'of land American man-of-war detailed tho. atrocities. Admiral Bell, then in com mand ot the Asiatic squadron, sent tho United States steamer Shenan.l.h t.. the Corean coast to inquire into the mat ter and demand redress. On approach ing the Corean coast the Shermandoah was tired on by shore batteries manned by large numbers of'Coreans, but as her commander had no onler lo rwtnri, il... tire, he left and rejtortcd the matter to .Aunurai uen.
