As to Hogs and Sansage Grind ing. To the Editor of Tbe Morristown Gazette : I'll never do so any more, Oh ! I'll never do so any more ; I've said damn too often, Their hearts now to soften, I'll never do so any more. I am in sack cloth and ashes "Claiborne" says I have profaned the toll gate. Thou father of David t Yesterday eve a committee ot our best citizens waited on me and told me with tears in their eyes that I was swearing too much. The holy Moses ! !

A. was Swiss, and I am Irish ; but tilt the odds. Concerning shibbolething," I ap peal to the readers of the Gazette, a large and an intelligent constitu ency. Twelve hogs, no more no less, did I kill thVs fall. Of the lard rendering and its unctuous incense I will not speak. Of sausage, scrap ple and spare-ribs, will I not ejacu late. Of back-bones, liver and feet, will I not murmur. With no one to love, none to caress, did I, for three days, grind sausage. That next year to that sausage mill will be at tached a hand organ dulcet, on "Sweet by and by" and "Thou art gone to the grave," I fully intend. That I watched the thing "squirt" sausage in interminable spirals, I need not say ; and, when the lovely mess coiled in the pan, of many things did I ponder. At least eso phagus, duodenum and peritoneum revolted, and I eaid, "I will arise and trn to mv friends." I dreamed of ZD crucified chicken, apple jelly, and pickle. Springing into the saddle, twelve heart friends did I visit. Each piesented ma with a complete set of back bones and spare-Tib3, and in the quiet of my chamber told me "they had ju9t killed hogs," as if I could not see the bristles upon the carving knife and smell the cracklings all ever the house. I considered this treatment "hoggish." I wished the toll gate stopped by the current of popular opinion, so I damfnied it. Ihe force or habit is strong, and in my back-bone agony I commenced to dam everything that I believed should be stopped. I had once a brother (in the good cause) with whom resignation had become a science. One night he started to leave a dark room. Ex tending both arms he wended. The door was half open, his arni3 went on either aide and his nose and the door collided. He bent a moment in 6ilent prayer, then exclaimed, "God bless my soul, I didn't know my nose was longer than my arms." That he said and nothing more. I have seen men bump their beads or mash their fingers putting on back-loga ; others sit on pins; anon those who seized, at supper the hot end of a dish. But this spare- rib business truly not !

Penn Yan, N. Y., Jan. 16. For many years Leon Lewis, of Penn Yan, was a story writer for the hew' York Ledger and other periodicals. His wife, Harriet Lewis, was also a popu lar story writer. They acquired con- siderable property in Penn Yan, and took rank in social life. Their home was one of the finest in the place. A year or so ago, Mrs. Lewis died, and some months later Leon Lewis announced that he intended to be gin the publication of a periodical in Perm Yan modeled after Robert Bonner's New York Ledger. ' He got a large subscription, and on the week before Christmas Tlie Mystery appeared. Believing that his wife was still with him in the spirit, and was interested in the enterprise as nuch as though she were liviDg, Lewis announced his dead wife as his co-editor and publisher. The initial number of Hie Mystery con tained the opening chapter of a story purporting to have been written by Harriet Lewis. Leon's introductory editorial article wa3 a feeling eulogy of his late wife. It declared that she was in constant spiritual com panionship with him, and that the "blessed hope of eventuall' enfold ing her in his arms in heaven" was all that reconciled him to her death. Only one number of, the Mystery was printed. Miss Julia Wheelock. a niece of Harriet Lewis", had be come a special favorite of Leon Lewis. On the Monday previous to Christinas Lewis and Miss Whee lock started from Penn Yan, with the understanding among their friends that they were going to Ro chester to do some Christmas shop ping. But the baggage masters checked nine trunks for them, and since their departure they have not been seen in Penn Yan. It has come out that Lewis and his sixteen-year-old companion ar rived in New York on the day pre vious to the sailing of the steamship Scythia, and that they took passage for Europe. Lewis owes $50,000 in Penn Yan. He leaves a property estimated to be worth $20,000. This is a library and the Mystery establish, ment. His real estate is mortgaged for more than its worth. It is said that he collected about $20,000 in subscriptions to the Mystery. A TRUE NEWSPAPER.

GOVERNOR MARKS' ADDRESS. Gentlemen of ihe Convention : The sovereign will of the people has cUi'heii us with the high trusts of our co ordinate offices. The trust9 imposed are sacred ; the honor conferred Is distinguished We are the accredited servants of i State; the peer of the grandest in the teccral Union. On the field her banners have been in the van; in council her voice has had the force of law ; on her statute book no law has a place nullifying the obligations of the constitution ol a common country; no law lending to irritate the people of her sister State?. She never asked the gen cral government for a law fostering her peculiar interests at the expense of the general welfare. In the late war in which our country was engag ed with a European power, after the capital of the Union had fallen, it was her son who, on the plains of New Orleans, snatched the palm o victory from a proud and arrogant foe and restored it to a grateful and admiring country. When monopoly had laid its with ering hands upon the people, it was her son who struck it down and gave equal laws, equal rights and equa trivilees to all. There has been war and desolation and blood shed but her garments are like snow. Though so rich !n desert yet you are called upon to legislate amid the ruins of her former prosperity Monopoly, the curse of the people again wears the crown, but I congra tulate you that while the body oT the old hero sleeps at the Hermitage, his spirit still walks the earth and the battle for freedom will go on un til monopoly U again dethroned and the crown of government restored to the head where it belongs in Tirlue of right divine. A grave responsibility presses up on us. Wisdom and patriotism alont may fill the measures of its demand. Let us remember that our action may have the force and efficacy of law only so far as it may formulate and give expression to the popular will, aud with justice aud honor for our guides, we may may walk firmly and confidently in the purpose aud effort promote the public welfare. lu hts presence and on this occa sion it is my cheerful duly to bear testimony to the worth of the dis tinguished retiring Governor. 1 knew him a Bayard ia the field; in social life the peer or the best; ou the bench an ornament, aud in his high office he has so borne him seif that he will carry with him into his retirement the love of his frieuds and the respect of his enemies. The oath of office was administer ed to Governor Marks by Chief Jus tice Deaderick. T II E New York Weekly for 1870. Now is the Time to Subscribe.
