Infantile Disorders*
We admit without argument 'that we are Ss -3
liable to an injunction from any of the courts
of Cook County, for having stirred up tbe ***
juvenile FpitrstJf tlie Chicago Times, in the
profound measure indicated bv thai Ebect of
• *. . an<
yesterday. There certain oflcnces against gQ
public policy and good morals which may be
committed by proxy. In some States legtela-
tion has been directed to the end of reachiog th<
the ultimate cause of Euch injuries. The pr
Maine Liquor Law, for instance, seeks to pun- so
ish the vender of ardentsplrits,through whose pa
indirect agency society incurs wide-spread
disaster. Here the majesty of the law steps
l>etwccn the cool, calculating, remorselees.
dram-seller, and the uncontrollable passion of
Ilia victim. So also are provisions made in oc
certain cases, dividing the penalty between fo
the immediate actor and the provoker or pro-
carer. Especially is this done in the cases of xi
infants, imbeciles and who are legally or mor- tt
ally incapable of trangrosslon, but whom the vi
law nevertheless recognizes as " persons." A
These statutes are wise,humane and in keeping w
with the civilization of tho age. They ehel- tc
ter the innocent, the same time they lay "
liold on the deliberate though crafty male-
&ctor, who might otherwise escape the just
consequences of his misdoinga.
We admit the application of the foregoing tl
principles to ourselves, in their fullest force. *
It was a crime against the social fabric to so „
perturbate and discompose and stir up the ii
emotions of our neighbors. We should have r
remembered that their leelings arc not only t)
callow but precociously liable to irritation. *
l\'e Ehouldhave borne in mind that tbey have j
sot passed all the ailments of infancy, and £
that whether teething or laboring with early J
measles they would be preternaturally senM- i
live to external things,.and likely to be ruf- j
lied on little or no occasion. A prudent re- t
gard for the public weal would have taught t
us not to sport with the fantasies and fits of t
childhood, lor though irresponsible they i
yet have rights wliich white men are
Lound to respect. The sagacity which ,
should belong to the conductors of
an influential journal might have re- (
titrained ub from agitating the unlorined i
aud tender senses of the Times' person?, to {
that undue state of exasperation noticed in
its columns of Friday, the 18th iiist. But in j
an unthinking moment—our minds abstract- (
cd. our hearts guileless—we erred as afore
said, and the consequences are upon us. We
are liable to be enjoined at any moment, and
ioT tbe welfare of those young people, for
whom we have always felt the liveliest inter
est, we hereby waive all pur rights of repli
cation and . fljtld. WU of
complaint. 71 - u •*".*.'•*** /-
Yet while we arc thCyCobf(sslonal, we
cannot avoid giving a few< of counsel
to our neighbors, which fro. srill be ,
kiodiy taken. It will .
• When the muscles are hardened and the bones
well knit by coming mind will
acquire its proper balance und
ties in like manner with the physical frame, ,
l>ecome tough aud elastic. Then the. ; e sudden
spasms, which only distort the capacities of
the intellect and waste the tissues of the
body, at the eame time they but excite the
sympathy of the beholders, will pass off and
leave the beginnings of a useful citizen. Why
not then make an effort to take time by the
forelock, and anticipate by a few years or
jmoiitbf* tbe period of pound development and
liubstautial usefulness ? Bo not give way to
those Hidden of ill-will towards those
who only desire lo be your friends. It is a
mistake to suppose that rancor, however
lustily proclaimed, will answer the purposes
of common sense in the downright practical
affairs of life.
A New Bankiog Bnxis in Minnesota.
An issue of currency has been made to tbe
Kicollet County Bank, under the Minnesota
Disking law, upon a deposit of University
Monde. These Bonds are issued by the Regents
of the University, on a pledge of certain lands
donated by the general government. Tbe back,
ing law of Minnesota requires the deposit of
State Stocks as a basis for currency, and there
cm be no question tbat tbe issue to the Nicollet
County Bank of the University Bonds is indi
rect violation at least of the spirit of that law*
The State Auditor, however, places a different
construction on it,and his opinion is sustained by
the Attorney General of the State. It is not
probable, howerer, tbat with so loose and mani
festly unjust a construction of the law that the
issues of Minnesota Banks will obtain much of a
circulation outside of the State.
There are already doubts as to the security of
Icuk issues based upon Miunesota bonds for rail
road purposes. The State has made no provision
to pay the interest upon those bnnds, nor U it
likely that t'n> will be done, for the people would
not submit to the taxation requisite for that pur
pose. Nor is there any reason to suppose tbe rail
road companies will meet the interest as it falls
due. The only way in which it can pos-lbly ;bc
paid will be by an annual iasue of bonds by the
State for that purpose—a step which no legisla
ture will dare take. Bat one Tcsult can follow—
the constant depreciation of tbe bonds of the
State. These are fozuc of the difficulties which
Miuuesota Bauks have to contend with when seek
ing to give cotreucy to their issues abroad. The
new ruling of the Auditor, by which a still more
questionable basis Is accepted for bank issues will
probably give tbe coup de grace to any further
efforts of this character.

abouttwelve miles between Earvard and Spring

break through thick ice most of tbe time. She
reported tha Illinois river otherwise clear, but a

TheCmtral American Treaty—The Tariff" War
—A Bptdal iSution Forethadoirtd.
* ' Ufasn our own Correspondent.]
Wasbsoto*, Feb. H. 18®.
news from Central Aaerioa it* that the
Cass-Yrisassi treaty baa been ratified by Nica
ragua. Thia famous bugbear of diplomacy was tt
- negotiated and signed bar* in October,lss7. 1U ol
ratification has been delayed by the treachery
and imbecility of the American Administration, o
and the intrigues of the French and English in ct
Nicaragua for the space of fifteen months. It
has yet to be ratiGed by onr Senate, of which ?
there is but little proßpect this session. The I'
provisions and terms of the treaty are of 0
soch a nature as to require the agency of a com- \
pany to be carried out That company was des- 1
ignated in conformity with the treaty by Yrisas- 0
si, the minister, here, to be that of Joe White, j
Stebbins k Co. Joe is the well known eloquent
Whig orator and member of Congress from In
diana, fifteen years ago—a man of brains with- {
out cash or discretion. Bis company has died j
for wfent of cash, which to financial bodies is
the breath of life, and the want of it—death, j
The Senate may confirm the treaty, though es \
the time is snort, and as the treaty is rather fa- ■
yorable to the legitimate colonization ot Central
America by industrious and peaceable Northern |
men, it is more probable that it will not be
touched at this session. There larei however, 1
several other treaties in the same dilemma, and
it is likely that a special executive session will
be held to dispose of them.
Sir Gore Ooseley is now in Central America
attempting the negotiation of a treaty almost
; the duplicate of this one. If he succeeds, it
will establish a good understanding between
the British and American governments, which
* will end in giving Mr. Felix Belly his groel, and
i in expelling French influence lrom the Isthmus
, routes.
The President has been very active in drilling
r bis forces in the Senate, in order to pave the
way for an increase of the tariff Tbey consist
for the present of Mr. Bigler, and Mr. Bates of
' Maryland. Bat he has strong hopes of Kennedy,
1 a Maryland Know Nothing. Kennedy has prom
ised the Presidant that be will make a tariff
speculation his platform. As soon as these man
* ipulations shall have filed down the free trade
I majority in the Senate to a minority, the tariQ
Democrats will move in the House with a com
promise between the specific of Buchanan and
t the decimals of Cobb.
r At present the revennes show aslight decline,
most of the receipts beiog in Treasury notes,
f which of course don't pay for Democratic jobs.
Cobb has a mortal hatred for his own paper; in
fact if he had is own way he would never see it
again after first issuing it,
f An extra session is privately threatened, and
the President has notified Southern Democrats
'• of the probability, so that their State govero
(l ments may prepare to issue orders for special
_ ejections.
The Committee on Military Affairs of the
a House hatfe refused to report in favor of releas
n ing Russell, Majors & Co, but have directed
Col. Curtis to prepare a bill for the prevention
ofsucb jobs in future. Jtrsios.

Experiences of a Chicago Operator in

[Correspondence of the Preti and Tribune.]
1* Buna Dak. WU., Feb. 13,1859.
)f At this present writing half a dozen or more
farmers' sleds are trooping through the princi
•e street of Beaver Dam, loaded with a variety
L .] of truck. The forward team consists ol a span
q ortiOrses that look as though they bad been
with, or had lately been through
S * chancery.-? The ha&QB their lank bodies sticks
3S , gix'jaid a quarterways for Sunday, like the fur
II at -an e«ited cat's tail. The poor creatures,
li- perhaps, sever kieW the lixdry of shoes, and
p » their gait is as awkward as -a "pair of bars. A
2ii big sled surmounted by a ve- y
of hide they are dragging, the contents of which
[ic may be briefly enumerated thus: One tremen
lie dous fat European (female); one ditto, ditto,
d (male) f one ditto, dressed hog; one green hide;
1 one mink skin j two musk-rat skins; one tub of
butter; three skiny dr*6Ses chickens. £U of
iC which, as will appear, are " good things to have
or in the country."
A crowd of famished speculators gather in a
10 twinkling around the Faderiander's sled; and
sc " what ye got to sell?" breaks upon his iym
a pannm with the precision and simultaueousness
er of one of Jollien'sgrand openings,
es "0, ebry ting," is the comprehensive re
al spouse.* (
" You want to sell tblt hide ?" chorus half a
dozen at once.
"Yas. -Vat yon gif?"
" What d'y ask for them furs ?"
" liOOk here," says one of the crowd in a low
voice, button-holing the German, " drive your
118 team right over to my place. I'll give vou
ds more for your stuff than any other man in this
fc. town can give."
f 41 Veil, vat you gifs for de mink skin ?"
0 " Don't be bamboozled by that Yankee, uncle
r ® Hans," stags out another of the crowd; "here,
et what do you ask me for that skin ?"
i: " Noting! Noting! I tell you, rat you gift ?"
"Well, I'll give you two dollars and a half!"
•' No, no, dash ish too leetle; gif me tree tol

Us this little sleigh load of produce thus fally in or

purchase in these small towns any raw material
" c that happens to be in active demand, at any
la- thing like a remunerative rate. Green hides at
. at 22 cents apiece, and probably a commission
upon ton of that, will make somtboiy ache I

gling furs, and payiegfrom twenty to thirty per

>be Ed : lon Prea and Tribune:
,be I take the following extract from a letter pub
lat lulled in the Missouri Republican, and dated at
its Springfield, Feb. 14,1M9:
rty " It is said that the title to the valuable pieces
of land In Chicago and Galena, has not traveled
many thousands of miles from Springfield; indeed,
ea- it Is thooght that under the law governing trusts,
on- a strict examination would find these still among
the assets of the Bank."
ta- Justice to the living and the dead Impels me to
irift say that the insinuation of the letter writer is
lio « wholly and entirely incorrect. All the lots in this
Ir. «ity, and the land in this county, were sold under
my immediate direction, at public anction, to the
klr! highest Udder,and were purchased by divers indi
viduals residing here and elsewhere. None of it
was purchased by an officer of the Bank, cither
Q directly or indirectly, except the Batik building
and lot, purchased by an agent of Col. Mather,
o f. (who In this particular case, was the hlgQertbid
e(j -der,) and afterwards deeded it to a large creditor
of the Bank at an advanced price.
The property now owned by N. H. Uidgely,
Esq., in this city, was never owned by the Bank.
This purchase wai an Individual transaction by
J" g that gentleman, and Wm. L. May,now deceased,
ae- aid w.is made, I think, some years before the
C„ Bank went Into liquidation. W. fl. Brown*,

e Tbe Civil Appropriations bill will be made
s the rider for a measure anthorizisg the issue of
ifr Treasury Notes and a loan for the relief of the
Government. Such an amendment will endan
if ger the bill, and upon its fate will depend an
extra session.
0 The Army Appropriation bill amounts to near
il ly sixteen millions. It haa been submitted to
r- the Committee on Military Affairs, and tbey
it bvve cut down various items, ithe total reduc
ib tion being one million three hundred and forty
n one thousand dollars.
1 Cuba has consumed most of the time of the
i- Senate to-day, Mr. Crittenden occupying two
i, hours in a powerful speech ogainst the acquiai
tion of that island. Mr. Slidell proposes to bold
•r evening sessions in future to be devoted to the
e, debate on Cuba.
s, Mr. Wendell, publisher of the Union, was he
rn fore the Printing Investigating Committee yes
in terday, and maac some interesting develop
ments regarding distribution of large sums of
money made by bim for political purposes in
e past elections, especially since he had control of
the Public Printing. It appeara that he waa too
shrewd to iivest SI,OOO against Covodein Penn
sylvania, when a letter was banded him by Mr.
1)9 Buchanan requesting him to do so. Wendell
it said he knew better than to throw his.money
away fighting Covode.
„ Mr. Smith, not Lane, drew the short term as
Senator from Oregon. It will expire in 17 days.
I Lane's term will expire March 4,1961.
, Tbe House beld an evening session, snd Mr.
X Morris of Illinois, denounced the Buchanan Ad
ministration as false to the platform upon which
it was elevated to power. He said the Demo
'® cratic party could no more go into the fi ht of
is ISCO with the fetid and rotten carcass of tbat
is Administration and succeed than a man could
>r blow down the walla of the* Capital with his
breath. , ,
ie Mr. Ward of New York made an elaborate
i- speech on the subject of the iuterooeaaic canal
it via the Atrato and Truando Rivera. He atates
tbat the canal la to]be constructed without locks,
and estimates that itwill cost $73,000,000. Fred*
S erick S. Kelley of New York is the promoter of
r, tbe enterprise, and holder ol the grants from
t. New Granada. •
I have reason to belive that evidence extsts
>r which will c6nvict a Democratic Member of
Congress of having demanded S4OO of a claim
? ant before he would report a certain bill from
his Committee. The case will be investigated.
j Why Covet Cnba ?
' Let it nowhere be forgotten nor sbullled ont
of sight that Mr. Benjamio, of Louisiana, the
able and plausible advocate of the acquisition
L of Cuba, ns ot all other schemes tending to dif
fuse and eternize human slavery, deliberately
bases bis argument on the following proposi
tion: ,
* "Thefirst leading fact, which ought to be
- kept constantly in view by all who would form
jnst conceptions on this subject, is. that the
r. wealth and productiveness ot this island have
, been created; and their continuance ean only be
KCurtd lya tytUm of compuUory labor. It the
experience of mankind has solved a single in
dustrial problem, we may fairly assume as
grsnted that tropical productions can be main*
e, tained, on a scale to meet tbe requirements of
g civilized man, by compulsory labor alone."
K This is his fundamental, vital reason for wish-
II ing Cnba transferred to the Uaited States,
which he proceeds to simplify and fortiiy most
artfully. His whole argument runs in'these
grooves substantially:
*• 1. " Compulsery Labor"—that is, human sla
[° very—must be maintained in tropical America,
J especially in Cuba. *
i. It cannot and will not be, unless Cuba be.
.» comes a portion of our Union, owing to thegreat
18 preponderance of males among the Cuban
7 staves, the average shortness of their lives, and
. the impediments now offered to the prosecution
of the African slave trade.
l! » .3. Therefore, Cuba must speedily become a
' possession of the United States, or slavery in
a that island will perish, and slavery in all tropical
®» America receive thence a deadly wound.
10 Farmers and Mechanics of tbe free States 1
r ® One Ilundnd aud lifty Millions of Dollar» is
er the estimated cost of wresting Cuba from
Spain, aod your experience will assure you that
r J the cost of such jobs rarely falls below the
original estimate, aod generally transcends it
beavily. Bat suppose the cost not to exeeed
the estimate-Ooe Hundred Millions of tbe ag
gregate must be wrenched from your sweat and
toil—a sum of at least (30 for each family in
the free States. Are you willing to be thus
jf. taxed to prolong the life of tropical slavery for
another generation ? If yon are not, say so at

Information haa recently been received here
by letter from John R. Irrine and other.▼'»«,
that the cabio, packed in bundles, and drawn by
eifiht teama ot horata had started from G."i»
River. At Otter Tail Lake Mr. Irvine will meet
them, with three sleds loaded with hay from the
Shayenne, and drawn by oxen. It is proposed
that horses shall be used in transporting the
cabin, machinery and timber for building the
bull from the mouth of Gull River (on the Crow
Wing River) to Oiter Tail Like; while, west
ward to Red River, ox teams will be used. The
first portion of the route is over a beaten road,
while across the prairies aojacent to Red River,
oxen will make better progreas than horses.
The boat has been taken apart, and the cabin,
decks and machinery packed, under the
intendence of Augustus and Jesse Young. Botn
are capable engineera. Angustus helped build
the bost, and was lately Captain of I E. B.
Nash's steamer Enterprise. Jesse \oung en
gineered Northrup's boat last summer, during
the memorable trip 350 miles north of Crow
Wiog, to Sandy Lake and Fokegema talis.
These gentlemen will accompany the expedition
to Red River. _ . . . w ..
The energy and efficiency of Anson Northrop
has been soch, as to inspire confidence in the
consummation of the seheme.
He has obtained all the plank end timber
needed to build the new hull at Chapman's saw
mill on Gull River. He has engaged a Mr.
Morse, a practical boat-builder from Little r alls,
to superintend the construction of the hull and
pet on the cabin.
A'l the additional teams, necessary to deliver
the bo.-vt by the Or*t of March upon Red Uivar,
will join Mr. Northrop, on hU rtiiurn. Balywln
Olmstead hs* five yoke of oxen at Fort Ripley,
beside one four horse team and oue swgla span 01
horses. Olm^teshas also hired foor yoke or
oxen at Sauk BaplcUto go on immediately. Mr.
Lewis Stone, or Flatte River, started last Thuw

or oxen and a sled, to assist iu loading the nuu
expects to be nine days in getting over to Red
informed that the snow is aboat fourteen
inches deep In the timber, although leas on this
prairies west of Otter Tail Lake.
Arrived on tbe first of March, with cabin, ma
chinery and lumber for the hull, tbe engineers are
confident that the boat will be ready to be launch

Toe public will be satisfied If trips commence
by thefiret June. . .

B We have been furnished with the following
extract from a private letter, giving an account
of the successful efforts of Captain Levy, of the
t United States ship Macedonian, to relieve the
, British frigate Curacoa, which had grounded in
« the Bay ol Smyrna. It will be seen that Capt.
Levy accomplished a difficult job in a manner
which ejicited very hearty thanks from the Brit

We sailed from Spezzia, bound to the island
j of Candia in the Archipelago, where we arrived
' in good time. We sailed from thence to the
i city of Smyrna, in Asia Minor. On onr arrival
o we fpnnd orders for us to proceed to the coast
u of Syrja a? soon as possible: we only stopped to
take in wood andVflter &u4 were off for Beyrout,
i. Joppa, and Alexandria "in Egypt fon gciog out
e of the Bay of Smyrna we passed an fooglish
8 steam frigate, " Curacoa," hard and fast
aground. Capt. Levy sent a boat alongside,
a tendering the use of our ship and boats in get
ting h«r off. ffhiph was accepted. The steamer
d had the English Ambasaador for Constantinople
e on board. Lord Richard Stratford de Itadolitt'e
r and family- They had Russian steamers ?.nd
' Turkish boats a-tuggiog at iter, b*t ?ope pocld

ii We were the first to come alongside to assist
them and tbe last to leave; and did not leave
i. nntil we bad got her atloat dga»n f
. You should have been present to bear the cheer
t ing wheu she floated—lt would have doue jour
your heart good. We came to her on Suuday aud
, remained till Thursday. Great credit is doe Capt.

£ the work. He received veiy pojitp letters from

r* nesj rendered. The Curacoa was going nine
i< knots when she struck, and when she stopped she
" 7 , T w «rd and so# draw

eleven feet at first, and must necessarily settle

New Water Power In Kalamazoo*
I" Wc I earn that surveys have been made, (result

power in this village,made by conveying the
" waters of the Kalamazoo frem a point near Sim*
eon Knight's, through a race of a little evera mile
in length to a point near the old trading-post, iust
below tbe new bridge. It has been ascertained
that a fall of nearly nine feet can thus be obtained,
which, with the full tide of. the Kalamazoo, will
" be amply sufficient to carry a great amount of ma
a chlnery. A surrey has also been made upon tbe
4 sooth aide of the nver, and a fall of nearly eight
a feet can be obtained, and requiring a race of only
three -fourths of a mile in length. The latter itce
* would start from about the same point as the

Strange Story About a Spiritualist,
j A year and a half ago a gentleman named
Hume of respectable standing from Nunda,
> Livingston County, in this Slate, wua boarding
• in Rooiuson street, in this city, and a Mr. Mor
rill and his wife from Newburyport, Mass., were
5 -maies oilue samC The Massachusetts
• lady avera that the boarder* ju thia bouse were
much given to boldiog spiritual circlet, and
r that ahe waa induced to sit at tbe mystic boord,
Z and, through the agency of Mr. Home and
others, became entranced. While in this state,
she understood that she was a writ
l" ing medium, and alleges that when she awoke
she waa in ber bedroom, which was
9 on the same floor aa the parlor where
, e the circle was previously held, and that
l " the New Yorkers had taken advantage of ber
I helplessoesa to outrage her person. Sabae
quently a child was born, which her husband
® refuses to acknowledge. The allidavit implica
ting tbe accused was taken in June last, but the
e arrest, for various reasons, was delayed until
last week, when Detective Bennett was sent to
Nunda for the accused. Justice Quackenbusb,
• before whom he was taken on Friaay last, held
him to answer, and set down bis examination
for to-day. Mr. Hume asserts that he is not nor
' never was a spiritualist, and that he can prove
by most ample testimony that tbe charge is un
founded, and originated in the fancy of tbe ac
cuser and bia wife, who he says, were verv en
thusiastic on the subject of spiritualism.—«Y. J'.

A Newspaper Editor*
i A newspaper editor must, like the poet, be
s born to his calliog, as in the majority of instan
e ces no amount of training will fit a person lor
', such a post, unless he baa » natural taste and
0 aptitude for that description of literary labor;
Ii for although many persons are able to write
;• '• leaders" or " literary articlea'Mor a news
:, paper, few can be entrusted with ita editorial
% control, few can scent out the libel which Inrks
> in almost every communication, few can distin
e gaish tbe report intended to please tbe speaker
f instead of informing tbe nation and the lettera
written to serve private interesta instead of pub
-3 lie enda; still fewer who can tell at a glance the
t kind of literary or political material which will
promote the ctrcolation of the journal—in lact,
a a good editor's great difficulty is not as to what
s be should put in but what be should keep out ot
1 hia columns. Successful editors have not been
great authors, but men ot good common sense,
>- and their good common aense has taught them
9 to write but little themselves, but to read, judge,
» select, dictate, alter, and combine the writings
0 of others.—Chambers' Journal.
