Sir: I am under the painful necessity
of drawing your attention to a complaim
made to mo by my daughter,

I believe one of tha members of your
honorable body. The nature of 6aid
complaint is in substance ns follows:
First: By his addressing a uote to her,

Iu tbe second place by making improp
er advances toward her, and annoying
her by asking her to kiss him. such r
e
Huest being frequently made by him. and
as frequently refused by her. He has
threatened that if she will not kiss h.m.
she should be dead in the Seventh Ward,
and until she granted a", he asked she
need not expect promotion or advance of
, salary.
She also complains that said-
has
circulated evil reports to Miss F. Wester
velt and others saying she is not a fit per
son to leach childreu; that she had fre
quently asked him to let her kiss him;
also other reports all of which she de
clares to be untrue and detrimental to
her charecter and reputation as a teach
er in good standing.
I would ask to be favored by ft full and
fair investigation of the matter by i
Committee of your Honorable Uoard,

O, yes, I've read it there.
Thy noble heart doth ever glow
With generous feelings sway.

penned by a high officer of the depart

not answered your parpose." Had I

nnd her letter to the inso
olent olhcial to i
her father, who duly approved of her dis
cretion. The fascinated young Trustee tattled
about the school mistress told some
one that she had wanted to kiss him.
Of course this was a lie, for certainly no
lady ever wanted to kiss a man. The
scoundrel, too, had her called out of her
school room one day, nud they had an
interview, which, in her reported testi
mony, is thus described:"
He asked me how I dared to send him
so impertinent an answer to his note; ttf
which I replied I did not consider it im
perliuent, as his note justly demanded
such a reply, he asked me if I still held
tho note. 1 replied 1 did; he then a6ked
me if I had a copy of the answer I sent
him. I replied I had; he asked me to
destroy both of these, saying they were
of no use; I replied I was accustomed to
keep notes that I received aud copies of
my replies, he made a quotation asking
why I made the comparison, calling him
a, high officer of the department of which
I was so insignificant a member; he aaked
me again to destroy them and think no
more about it, and kiss and make friends;
I told bim I was not in the habit of kiss
ing gentlemen, and would not kiss him;
he asked for a reason; I told him it was
wrong, both that he should ask it or that
I should do it, and as far as possible I
kept myself (rom doing that that was
wrong, he again asked me to kiss
him; 1 replied, I will not; he asked me if
I dared to tell him I would not kisa him;
I told him I dared to do anything and all
that was right; he said he was displeased
and would remember that aud then left;
several times after this be came into
school without speaking to me; this as
during tbe latter part ot March; I then
met him at tbe Normal School at the ex
aminatien of my class; he beiug one of
the Committee, engaged himself during
the evening iu inspecting the written ex
ercises of different members of the class,
he asked me to show mine; I handed
them to him; after he had looked over
my papers he addressed himself lo me:

"After this she treated him coolly but

It was never knowu that any man grew

have become better by embracing it;
and we may defy any one to produce an
instance where any man became worse.

How the Old Chief was Astonished
by A Colt "The Governor had one of
Colt's pistols in bis belt, and one of bis
revolving rifles'always in his hand, and 1
had the old Minie, with whose power
you are somewhat acquainted. I had
let out the idea that tbe Governor's gun
could shoot all day without reloading,
which made an illustration necessary.
They were all anxious to see it 'set in
motion,' and I placed the door of our
tent, which was part of a cowskin stretch
ed on a hoop, at a distance of sixty or
seventy yards, with a bull's eye in the
centre. The whole village bad assem
bled, and the Governor took his position
and went off one! two! three! lour! üve!
six! I then stepped up and told him
that was enough, I presumed; and while
the oid Chef iwas assuring him that
they were all convinced, and it was n
pity to waste any more ammunition, the
Governor was slipping the empty cylinder
-off and another one on, wi'h six charges
more, without their observing what b
was doing he offered to proceod, but
all were satisfied that his gun would
bhoot all day without stopping, and this
report traveled ahead af us to all the
tribes we afterwards visited in that re
gion." m A

ine roots are long anu oi a pale rns

from 17 to 28 ounces the growth of a
single season.
As a number of persons have been cul
tivating this plant during the past som
mr, we shall soon be able to decide
wither it is as valuable as has been rep
resented. A lnrge cultivator writes to
us that "this root is destined to revolu
tionize the alimentarv basis of our coun
try." Wm. R Trince, of Flushing. N. Y., has
30,000 plants of this esculent under cul
tivation, and etitertains very sanguine
views respecting its prospective impor
tance in the United States, He asserts:
1st. That the Dioscorea Batatas is per
fectly hardy during our severest winters.
2d. That it is more nutritious than any
other esculent we cultivate. 3d. That
its culture is so easy and simple, and its
product so great, that it can be afforded
incomparably cheaper than any other nu
tritious vegetable, it having produced in
France at the rote of above 800 bushels
to the acre. 4tb. That the combination
of every useful property renders it the
greatest vegetable boon ever granted by
God to man, and that its introduction to
our country is even more important than
that of cotton, and that in twenty years
our national statistics will report the
value of the annual crop as greater than
the cotton crop.
Such reliance ia placed upon this root
in the Chinese empire, that, according to
Mr. Prince, one, half the population
would perish from famine if suddenly de
prived of it.
According to the 6ame authority, ft
will supersede every other potato, and
in a measure be substituted for Iudian
corn and wheat. It is said to make good
bread, and the roots propagate easily and
rapidly. The Reveu Horticole," pub
lished under the direction of the French
Institute, devotes twenty pages to this
subject, concluding as follows:
'This esculent has now been tested In
every Department of France, even to Its
more northern limits, the shores of the
Rhine, and it is to be deemed henceforth

The Rhode Island Greening Apple, so
called is a large, hrirapple, of a greenish
color, is ripe late in the fall, and is the
best apple perhaps of any in this conn
try. It has a pleasont aad agreeable
acid, and is aa excellent eating fruit,
from Christmas, as long as it can be
kept, which in some cases has been until
the summer following. It is now exten
sively cultivated in the Eastern and Mid
dle States, and, we believe, everywhere
bears tbe name of Rhode Island Greening.
Generally, it is not so perfect a fruit
anywhere else as on this island and its
vicinity, especially on the eastern
side of the bay.
This fruit was fust discovered on this
island, according to tradition, which we
bad from the family of Green. A man
named Green kept an inn, which stood
nearly where the house of Joseph I. Bai
ley now stands, in Middle town, just to
tbe northward of the bridge that crosses
tbe brook, soon after you enter what is
called the East Road. This inn, in tbe
early times of the colony, was a com
mon resort for pleasure parties from
Newport. At that place tbe aforesaid
apple was found; among the natural fruit
and aoon became well known for its su
periority, and was called Greeu'a Inn
Apple, by which name it continued tobe
called, until by a slight variation in
pronunciation the vulgar name of Green
ing Apple was substituted. This fruit
has ever since gone by the name of
Greening Apple, and wherever it is pro
daced, out of tbe Stite of Rhode Island,
it is uniformly called Rhode Island
Greening,
The "keeping qualities of this apple
depends upon the locality, soil, and cli
mate where grown. In New England,
especially iu the mountainous districts,
upon high, gravelly, and moderately rich
soil, it grows slowly, ripens late, and
keeps a long time even till the follow
ing spring or summer while those of
the same variety grown farther South, or
in the deep, rich soil of the West, or up
on the shores of the great lakes, are much
more tender and juicy, ripen earlier, aud
will not keep so long. R. I. Greenings
from tbe mountains are as different from
those grown in the lowlnds as are hardy
mountaineers different from effeminate
counter jumpers.

outstripped even Douglas. But Buch
anan was too deep for both of them, for
be offered to take F. Pierce's place in sus
taining tbe wishes of the South in Kan-
as, and also to get Cuba for the Soirth.
