Hplcj Colloquy In Congress Between Mr Mrs. Chlttcmlen and Mutter. (Pom the House Proceed, lug a.) Before Mr. Butler bad taken his seat, Mr. Chittenden ro&e to ask him nomo questions. Chittenden's tirnt question was, What would become of the poor men and women who owned 8500.000. 000 of savings-bank deposits when the United States bonds were returned from Europe, and when their price fell, as Butler desired them to fall, to 50 per cent, or their par Talnor Mr. Butler This will bo what will happen them: They will be just where they utv uuw, with their ut pouts not in C-per-cent. bonds, but in tumble-down real estate in New York that is not worth 15 cents on the dollar when the taxes are paid. Mr. Chittenden Does the gentleman mean by that that every savings bank iu Massachusetts and New York will bo bankrupted ? Mr. Butler They are, so far aa the United States bonds are concerned, bankrupt to-day. Thoy have not got them, they sold them. Mr. Chittenden That is not an an swer. Does tho gentleman mean that all the savings bank of Now York and Massachusetts will be and ought to bo bankrupted by tho return of these bonds ? Mr HutW Tlov e, on-lit not to be, bankrupt. They will be bank rupt because the vuluo of their securi ties in real estate, iu railroads, and in everything else but Government bonds has been sunk three times by their in fernal lust for gold. Mr. Chittenden (excitedly) I wish to hold the gentleman to tho point. Mr. Butler Well, I am content. Mr. Chittenden (with hi voice at the highest pitch) If you, as an advocate of the unlimited remonetization of sil ver, force back on this country the many hundred millions of bonds now held iu Germany, and thereby break down every savings bank in Massachusetts and New Y'ork, who wdl bo responsible? Will not you be fairly entitled to be hung to a lamp-post where you desired the Secretary of the Treasury to be hung ? Mr. Butlei I will take my chances with the rest when the lamp-posts come round. I have no fear on that subject. But it will not be tho return of bonds that will break the savings banks, be cause they are breaking ; they are rot ten, and aie tinkiug. Mr. Chittenden (without waitiug for Mr. Butler to come to a stop) I know a savings bank that has $10,000,000 of Government bonds, and if it shall be obliged to take $5,000,000 for them it will be ruined, and its i0,000 depositors with it the poor people for whom you profess to speak the laboring men and women. There axa 20,000 of them de positors in that one bank, and they will be sent to beggary forever. Mr. Butler And the directors should bo hung to a lamp-post and roasted after ward. Mr. Chittenden I am no joker. Mr. Butler I know that. Mr. Chittenden I believe that the gentleman from Massachusetts has mo ments of seriousness, and now I wish to appeal to his possibly serious temper. Mr. Butler I never was in a better temper in my life. Mr. Chittenden I wish to ask the gentlemau if ho thinks that thero will be aDy more prosperity in this country, prosperity to the laborer, to the farmer, to the man who works in the blacksmith shop, in the shoe-shop, until confidence is restored to capital V Will your ever lasting, irredeemable, miserable green backs restore that confidence ? Mr. Butler If the prosperity of .this country depends upon the 2 per cent, difference between gold and greenbacks, God help the couutry. Mr. Chittenden Now como right down to the work, my friend. If you have a house to build or a horse to buy you know what practical business is. I ask you to como up to the work. You have spoken disr spoctfnlly hero of hankers and brokers. Out of the 290 members of this hous 250 are lawyers. Mr. Butler (parentlct.callv) I wish fifty were. Mr. Chittenden Now I ask yon to doff your gown ami tell me whether, without confidence to capital, you can restore prosperity to this country ? Mr. Butler I should a great deal rather have a better basis of prosperity to this couutry than the confidence which has been to fully bestowed on capitalists that the country is ruined. Mr. Chittenden Then you think that the basis of eternal miserable green backs is better? Mr. Butler Yes, but not quite eter nal. I say again, and I want you to un derstand, that I look upon greenbacks (based on the strength, tho power and wealth of the country) as a great deal better basis than any one product of the country, whether wheat, corn, gold, sil ver or ccEfidcnce. Tight Boots. I had on new shoes. They were num ber seven when I started, but were no more than fives now, and still diminish ing. I walked two hours in those shoes after that before we reached home. Doubtless I could have the reader's sym pathy for the asking. Many people have never had tho headache or the toothache, and I nra one of those myself; but every body has worn tight shoes for two or threo hours, and know the luxury of taking them off in a retired place and seeing his feet swell up and obscure the firmament. Few of us will ever forget the exquisite hour wo were married. Once, when I was a callow, bashful cub, I took a plain, unsentimental girl to a comedy ono night. I had known her a day; she seemed divine; I wore my new loots. At the end of the first half hour she said, "Why do you fidget. so with your feet?" I said, "Do I?" Then I put my attention there and kept still. At the end of another half hour she said, "Why do you say, Yes, oh, yes,' and 4 Ho, ah, certainly, very true 1 to every thing I say, when half the time they are irrelevant answers ?" I blushed and ex plained that I had been a little absent minded. At the end of another half hour she said, Tlease, why do you gaze steadfastly at vacancy and yet look so pail?" I explained that I always did when I was reflecting. An hour passed, and then she turned and contemplated me with her earnest eyes, and said, ' Why do you cry all tho time ?" I ex plained that very fnnny comedies always made me cry. At last human nature surrendered, and I secretly slipped my boots off. This was a mistake; I was not able to get them on any more. It was a rainy night, then were no omnibuses going our way, ad as 1 walked homo, burning up with shame, with the girl on one arm and my boots under tuo other, 1 was an obiect worthy of some compas sion, especially in those moments of martyrdom when I had to pass through the glare that fell upon the pavement from street lamps. Finally this child of tho forest said, 1 'Where are your boots?" and, being token unprepared, I put a fitting finish to tho follies of the evening with tho stupid remark. "The higher classes do not wear thtiu to the theater." Mark Twain. Napoleon's Prophecies. The rapid march of events during the past year in Eastern Europo recalls to mind the prophecy of Napoleon, that in fifty years Europe would be Cossack or republican, and supplies some curious verification. The conversations which he held with the Englishman O'Meara, as ho paced back and forth in his re stricted quarters at St Helena, have been preserved by tho latter and record ed in book form. Wo cite a few of them, as showier how closely the great Emperor looked into futurity. Upon ono occasion he said to O'Meara : " In the course of a few years Russia will havH CoLfcbint,nnp(, the greatest Eart of Turkey, and all Greece. This I old to be as certain as if it had already taken place. Almost all the cajoling and flattering which Alexander practiced toward mo was to gain my consent to effect this object. I would not consent, seeing that the equilibrium of Europe would be destroyed. In the natural course of things, in a few years Turkey must fall to llussia. The greatest part of her population are Greeks who, you may say, aro Russians. Tho powers it would injure, and who could oppose it, aro England, France, Prussia and Austria. Now, as to Austria, it will be very easy for Russia to engage her as sistance by giving her Servia and other provinces bordering on the Austrian dominions, reaching near Constantino ple. The only hypothesis upon which England and Franco will ever form an alliance with sincerity will bo in order to prevent this. But even this alliance would not avail. France. England and Prussia united cannot prevent it. Rus sia and Austria can at any time effect it. Once mistre ss of Constantinople, Rus sia gets all the commerce of tho Medit erranean, becomes a great naval power, and God kiows what may happen. She quarrels with yon, marches off to India an army of 70,000 good soldiers, which is nothing, and 100,000 canaille, Cos sacks, and others, and England loses India." In another conversation O'Meara asked Napoleon if it was true that Alex ander once intended to seize Turkey, to which Napoleon replied : " All his thoughts ore directed to the conquest of lurkey. We have had many discussions about it. At first I was pleased with his proposals, because I thought it would enlighten the world to drive those brutes, the Turks, out of Europe. But, when I reflected upon the consequences and saw what a tremendous weight of power it would give to Russia, in consequence of the numbers of Greeks in the Turkish do minions, who would virtually join the Russians, I refused to consent to it, especially as Alexander wanted to g-.t Constantinople, which I would not al low, as it would have destroyed the equilibrium of power in Europe." Remarkable Phenomenon. About twelve years ago Mrs. Weis, an estimable lady aged about CO, died at her homo near this city, and her remains were interred on the tarm of a relative. Mr. Jacob Koopf, about two aud a half miles north of Foit Wayne. As the farm was about to pass out of tho hands of tho family, the body was yesterday tusinterred lor the purpose of being re moved to Lindenwood Cemetery. The coflin.which had bern wasting in a damp place, was found to bo well preserved. When opened the remains presented a most striking appearance. The feat ures were unchanged, having altered in no res2"ect since death. Tho body was completely petrified, every portion of it being as hard as a rock. When struck with the hand tho resulting sound was as loud as if a stone wall had been hit. Mrs. W. was a very large woman in her lifetime, and when she died weighed about 200 pounds. The weight . of tho body yesterday was so great that it taxed to tho utmost the strength of six large men to move it. The lines of the face were hardened, and tho entire body was as rigid as a bronze statue. The re mains were complete, with the excep tion of tho feet, which were gone, thero being only two small bones left, which were detached from the ankles. Tho body was brought to this city yesterday and reinterred in Lindenwood Cemetery. Mrs. Weis was th mother-in-law of John Vndermark, Esq. Fort Wayne (Ind.) Sentinel. I risk Bulls. Mr. D., an Irish gentleman, was in vited to dinner lately, by a well-known Scotch resident, at whoso generous table he met quite a number of the host's countrymen. The coiv versation turned on Irish bulls, of which one and another repeated several, until tho wholo company was in a roar of laugh ;er. Our Irish friend kept quiet until his patience was exhausted. Then ho blurted out: Stay, Mr. C, an do ye know what I think?" "Why, in deed, what do you think, Mr. D.?" "Shure, sir, and do ye know that I think, indade, that not more than one half these lien that they tell about the Irit-h are true.11 This may be mid to have " brought down" the table. One Way of Becoming Wealthy. John Rhodes, of Hounslow, England, dressed as a tramp, denied himself the necessaries of life, and took to the road. He lately died, and his fortune was found to be over 100,000. The man bequeathed it to various metropolitan charities. A similar instance of eccen tricity occurred in Marseilles. Tho ob ject of tho miser was to bxild an aque duct to convey water into the city free, and it was done. During the life of the Frenchman he was ridiculed, despised, and, like Stephen of old, came near be ing stoned on account of his rags and his raeannosr. IMPORTANT IKYEST1UATI0XS. Selling Citizens of Florida Into Slavery- Are the Cuban Patriots I'scllled? Several week ago, says a Washington telegram, tho President received a let ter from a reliable source stating that the writer was in possession of facts capa ble of direct proof to the efiVct that col- !Ai - T"M 1 1. J 1 oreu men, citizens oi x luriiin, iinu ui-eu kiduapped and transported across the Gnlf of Mexico to Cuba, and thero sold into slavery. The writer says members of the families of some of the enslaved citizens had received intelligence from Cuba, from their relatives, stating that they were held in bondage there, and the matter was communicated to tho Chief Executive of tho United States for such action in tho premises as might bo doemed best calculated to vindicate American dignity in view of a procedure bo grossly in violation of tho civilization of the times. The contents of the letter occa sioned much surprise to the President. With a view of ascertaining the truth of the statement, he concluded to dispatch a confidential agent to Cuba for that purpose. Such agent was found in Judge Leonard, Republican member from Louisiana in the House of Repre sentatives, a gentleman discreet and cour teous, and familiar with the Spanish lan guage. It was thought advisable to pur sue this d'screet course instead of mak ing the subject the basis of diplomatic r'nrrespoudcTifc. .Tiplrro Lotnrd, a few dnysago. obtained indefinite leave of ab senco from the' House, aud left New York for Havana on tke steamship Columbus on Wednes day last, carrying with him a letter from President nayes to the Cap tain General, and also one from Senor Mantilla, Spanish Minister, addressed to the same officer, to whom Judge Leonard wul make known the object of his mission. It id not doubted that tho Captain General will afford him every facility for tho accomplishment ot his mission, besides extending his own in vestigations in the samo direction. An other object of the mission is to ascertain the true condition of the insurgents, official accounts and those from insur rectionary sources being contradictory. hue one side represents a decline ot the insurroction, the other asserts to the contrary, and agents have been hero in behalf of the insurgent Cubans, witti a view to the recognition of their inde pendence by the United States. Tho Captain General will doubtless extend to Judge Leonard the necessary facili ties for vhitiug the insurrectionary dis trict, as Spain uniformly shows a dispo sition to preserve and strengthen friend ly relations between Spain and the United States, which have never been more amicable than they are now. Should it be found true that negroes ore kidnapped iu Florida, or any other Southern State, anil conveyed to Cuba and sold into slavery, immediate means will be adopted to prevent all such fu ture outrages on persons and violations of international law. The objects of the mission are mot publicly known, care having been taken to conceal them, but the above statement is confirmed in ouorters which leave no room for doubt. A Murderer's Confession. A man in the northern part of the province of Rio Janeiro haH confessed upon his deathbed that he was tho real author of the murder of a family of eight persons in 1852, for which a wealthy planter, by name Motta Coqueiro, and three of his slaves were executed in ISoG. The house in which tho victims lived was set on fire after the crime bad been com mitted. Suspicion having fixed itself on Motta Coqueiro, ho and three of his slaves were brought to trial. The evi dence was weak, but so strong was tho feelirg against the planter that tho jury tound him guilty, and tho Court t.f Re lation at Rio continued the sentence of death. He and his friends strenuously asserted his innocence, and, when it was found hopeless to obtain his acquitbd, every possiblo effort was made to induce tho Emperor to grant him a pardon. It is even said that sums amounting to $250,000 were promised to persons around the Empress to induce them to enlist her sympathies on be'half of the condemned man, aud thus, by means of her intercession with tho Emperor, to attain the object in view. All, however, was in vain. The Emperor was firm; the Empress declined to interfere; the Gov ernment sent a vessel of war to Macahe to prevent any attempt at rescue, and Motta Coqueiro and his threo slaves wrt executed lor a crime which it now turns out they never committed. Tho man who lately died acknowledged that he, assisted by sonio of his dependents, de liberately nurderod all the inmates of the house, which they afterward llrneil. The eloubts which arose as to thn uistico of Motta Coqueiro's fate and pi? those who suffered with him, aiteir tJhcir exe cution, are supposed to have Iraifced an uneasy leeling iu the Emperfty'4 mind, and he has since, it is stated! shown a great disinclination to allow mftitencs of itoc' th to be carried into effect Jl , Killed With a Base-UafjIRat. Kent McLin, a young son of S. B. McLin, formerly of Florida, died in this place on Sunday night from the effects of injuries received during tho game of base ball on Friday afternoon. A num ber of boys were playing a game of base ball, and young McLin and another young man named Dudley were on the same side. McLin claimed that it was his turn to go to tho bat, and Dudley said it was his, and walked up to McLin and took the bat from him. McLin be came angry and struck Dudley in tho stomach with his list. Dudley jumped back, and seeing McLin still approach ing him, as if to strike again, ho com menced waving the bat rapidly in front of his body and Walking backward. Mc Lin continued to approach, trying to ran in near enough to strike, holding his head forward and down. In this position he ran up too near to Dudley, and the bat struck him on tho temple jnst above the car, fracturing the skull. Tftomaaville (t7.) Entcrpisc.

In the postofllce in this city, as in most others throughout the country, th canceling of tho stamps on letters and the printing of the postmarks is done simultaneously.
