McVEIGH From the Cincinnati Daily Gazette. “MY EXP£RIMENT—MY CURRENCY.” [A Fact.]—The Secretary of War, Lewis Cass, has ordered a quarter master of the ar i my, stationed at Cincinnati, Ohio, and neigh | borhood. to pay Indian annuities at Logans’ ! Port, Indiana. To place him in funds, the eco nomical Secretary, has ordered two wagons, loaded with specie, $91,000 from Philadelphia to Cincinnati!!! (Last war they transported tent i poles from Philadelphia to Buffalo—Oh hush!)— | and this too, under the special charge of a cap j tain in the army, who will receive compensation under the head ‘ Transportion,’ if he is not en j titled to the pay of a brevet Major, in command of a separate detachment on special duty. | $1820 Being 2 per cent.—the cheapest freight from Philadelphia to Cincinnati. 500 For transportation and forage of com » mander of detachment. $2320 For ‘my experiment.’ The pet bank here has 3 or 8100,000 of pub lic monies, to pay any debts due by Govern ! ment, to reimburse the Philadelphia pet, or mon ster, (no matter which,) in the course of a month or two. The Franklin will send, at an expense of 2 per cent, $91,000, to Philadelphia. $2320 more for a friend. ‘ So it works.’ Bet ter take a good ‘ resate,” as Major Downing says—it wont cost so much. It would have been too regular to have drawn the money at Cincinnati, and send it up to Lo- ! gans Port,—it would have saved $5120 to the government, on one Indian annuity. How you talk? CO AHEAD FOR STOKER, vs. THE GINERAL AND HIS 80N ROBERT. Preserx’pd Fish commenced life an appren- i tice to a blacksmith, and his next situation was i that of a seaman on board of a whaling ship.— j From being a h ind before the mast, he rose to be a mate, and finally commander, and in this hazardous pursuit amassed the foundation of his fortune. Saul Alley was bound when a small boy, ap prentice to a coachmaker. During his appren ticeship his father died, and left him totally de pendent on his own exertions. The very clothes he wore he was obliged to earn by toiling extra hours after the regular time of leaving off work had passed. The foundation of his fortune he acquired by the exercise of frugality and pru dence while a journeyman mechanic. Cornelius W. Lawrence, the present Mayor of New York, was a farmer’s boy, and worked many along day in sand and sunshine on Long Island. There were few lads within twenty miles ot him that could mow a wider swarth or turn a neater furrow. These men have been the architects of their own fortunes; they have earned them by the sweat of their brows; and their very wealth, be sides the other means of doing good to their fel low men, which it puts in their power, is, in it self, a perpetual stimulus to the Mechanic and artisan to earn a similar reward by similar fru gality, industry and perseverance.
