He proves it, how ever, by a short argument : "When one stocking is pulled off, there is another left on ; pulling off this is taking the left stocking off luBt." Old Mrs. Bumblebee says that "when she was a belle in the belfry of ttuld lang swino, the gals used to wear their bustles uuder tho canopy of their petty coats, directly opposite their aperns, but tho immortalised huwys ov the prsoeut generation, hist than to the top pertrast ef thoir erayurne, and the dear knows that if all the other euperfluxities of the feminine aparel rie in propor tion, the mpectablo portion of the im munity won't daro to leave the inclu sion of their own diuiiciles." Ws have a little revelation from Springfield, Maes. A lady, young, attractive, and just married, left her heme, in that city and went into the country accompanied by her hueband. Boon after her debut as Mrs. H , she attended a sewing society. After the usual subjects of conrersatien had received attention the lunar eclipse was alluded to. 'Mrs. H , did yoa sit up to see it, eh !" No, I did not," was the reply ; "Mr. H sat up. In Springfield, where I came from, they are such a bore we have them so often !" How Alb Strengthened Him. A student of one of our Stato colleges had a barrel of ale deposited in his room, contrary, ef course, to rule and usage. He received a summons te appear be fore the President who said : "Sir, I am informed that you have a barrel of ale in your room." "Yes sir." "Well, what explanation can you 1 u 'HIKO I "Why, the fact is, sir, my physician advised me to take a littlo eaon day as s tonie, and not wishing to stop at the various places where the beverage is re tailed, I concluded to havo a barrel ta ken te my room." 'Indeed. And have you derived any benefit from the use of it?" "Ah, yes sir. When tho barrel was first taken te my room, two days since, I eould scarcsly lift it. Now 1 can lift it with the greatest ease." We believe tho witty student was dis charged without a special reprimand. A Landlord Retaliatbd Upon. A gentleman well known to our merchants as a Now York drummer, named Frank W , stopped for supper at tho littlo town of Salem, Ohio, on the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad, a few weeks ago. Ho was hungry, and fifteen minutes was all the time allowed for refreshment. At last seven of the fifteen minutes had elapsed before Frank oould catch tho eyo of the Waiter, when he was furnished with a cup of coffee and a plato of beans, Tho beans were but half devoured, when tho land lord camo along qnd demanded a dollar. Frank protested, but the landlord was obstinate, and "all aboard" boing heard, our drummer friend was com Belled to shell out. Shortly afterward. being in Cincinnati, ho inquirod at the teleeranhio office if he could send a dol lar, dispatch to Salem, to be paid for at its destination. Tne clone told mm be oould, when the , following was sent, 0. 0. D, : '.'Cincinnati, Deo. 10, 1867. To E. M. Stone, Salem, Ohio : I still think the price of your beans too high. g' Frank W ."

Christ is the chlcfcst often thousand, and altogether lovely. Search the chron icles of antiquity, read tho rocords of .. . f 1 - .L , moucrn tiincs,ana wno among tuo migmy can bo compared with Him ? Can Au gustinoor Chryaoatom? Can Luther or Calvin Can Wesley or Whitcfield? Those, though deservedly fnmous, arc infinitoly oclipsod by Him. They were stars of the first magnitude, but Ho is n rofulgontsun. Tbey were rippling rills, but He is a vast ocean. He has obtained a name whteh is above every name It is most sweet, oven as tho pcrfumo of tho violet cr tho rose. It is an ointtrient poured fourth, and will fill the whole universo with its fragrance. It is a powerful magnet which is fast drawing the' nations to itself. Has Ho attracted you? Have you ever said to Him, "Draw mo, and I will run nfter Theu ?" You must lenvo all to follow Him. You muat forsoko tho ball-room, the card-table, andwhatsocver is in compatible with true religion, for his saKo. Christ is' God manifest in tho flesh. Ho is tho image of tho invisiblo God, tho first-born of every creature ; for by Him were all things created, that aro in heaven and that aro in earth, visible and invisiblo, whether they bo thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or pow; ere ; all things wero created by Him and for Him ; and Ho is before all things, and by Him all things consist. He built the arch of tho sky. He gar nished the heavens with splendors, and fashioned the ponderous globes of light. He painted the beautiful colors of the rainbow, and pencilled tho gorgeous tints of tho flowers. Ho made tho in sect that flutters in tho-sun-boams, and the miunow that plays in tho waterB. All things were mado by Him ; and without Him was not anything made that was mado. Do you worship Him? Do you give Him supreme affection ? Remember, all raon should honor the Son even as they honor tho Father. Christ is our Mediator. Wo havo re volted from God, and IIo has interpos ed for us, and brought tidings of peaco. God wao in Christ, reconciling tho world unto Himself. Ho repaired the breach; He bridged the gulf ; Ho broko down the towering wall of separation, and cast up a highway of salvation. He satisfied divino justice, fulfilled tho law, made a complcto ntonomont, and pro vided a spotless rightoousncss. Instead of displaying tho black flag of ven geance, He has unfurlod tho wbito ban ner of mercy. Will you lay down tho weapons of your rebellion? Will you take the oath of allcgianco ? Will you believe on tho Lord Jesus Christ ? On these terms you shall havo a full par don and complete restoration. Christ is an inexhaustible fountain of refreshment and delight. Wo havo been busily occupied in howing cisterns when a fountain is near. Wo havo been till ing them with water of tho world ; but it is impuro, unsatisfying, and cannot quench our thirst. Moreover, they aro broken cisterns, which can how no wa ter ; as fast as wo fill them thoy run out. Wo have been like travelers in tho dosort, deceivod by tho rairago pursuing tho moro imago of water, and never finding the cooling spring. But Christ is the Hying Fountain, and ho stands and cries, "If any man thirst, let him coiuo unto me and drink." Ho is not ft summer-day brook, which in your greatest need is dry. Ho is a per ennial spring, ever bubbling, ever flow ing, and sending forth its swoet stroams. "Ho, every ono that thirstoth, como ye to tho waters." Como with your empty pitchers, and fill them. Bring your thirsty hearts, and satisfy them, Drink freely, drink daily, from this overllow ing and everlasting supply. Here is no lack, and no limit. Though many are pressing forward, therois room for you Church Union. Mr. A. V. Temple recently drew up tho largest deed ever put on record in Winnebago county, Illinois. It is fif teen feet in length, and contains about nvo thousand words. Tub New York Mail says John G, Saxe's reputation as a wit and poet has been steadily deolining for the past ten years.

Tho following privnto letter has boen written to Mr. Johnson by an ox-Post-mastor of Kansas City. It is full of sympathy, and intonded to givo back bono to tho President : vNbar Tnu Post Office, ) Kansas Citv, Mo., Fob. 5i6, G8. $ (private.) To Andrew Johnson, President, ad interim : Sir : You will rcmomber mo as hav ing been ono of your r. m's. Knowing you well I havo thought proper to wnto you, I flee that the Rump which has fast ened itself to the verge of tho Govern ment, at the "other end of tho avenuo," is ondoavorinK to cot you into trouble If I understand it, tho object is to ro- movo you. This is unpleasant, as I havo had a Bump try the samo thins: on mo. and that successfully. You arc Btanuing up for principle so was I. Pcoplo said I was mistaken, and didn't know what I was doing. No body accuses you of being mistaken, or not knowing what you aro doing ! The conduct of such unprincipled men as Sheridan, Sickles, and Pope, shows you how men of thoir principles turn out, ana get turned out. Congress proposes to eivo you a trial this you never gavo mo. I had tho people on my sido, whilo you have'gbt them on your bock. Uongress hasn't cot much individual sense, and collectively aro half way traitorous thoy don't believe as you do that treason should bo made odious, and traitors offered a bask seat this, if nothing else shows thoir disloyal spirits. If Concress don't turn vou out. tho peoplo will stand by you if you turn them out o:ther of you will be justifi able in acting. xou have got some back-bono, which is more than can bo said for Congress. socially you and 1 are bully good fol lows ; politically we differ as to tho mi nor point, whether we aro to havo a gov ernment or not. I helped turn you into offico, and you holped turn mo out. Ono good turn do serves another, and Congress is trying to scrow its courogo up to givo you ono moro last turn. All kinds of bad stories will bo cir culated concerning you, but pay no at tention to thorn. Don't fret if tho Washington Cobb-mill is attributed with grinding out stories to tho effect as is stated when tho impeachment vote was taken, that "tho old man is eone up at last." Suoh statoments are un true as thero is no earthly or heavenly chanco of your overgoing up. As this will probably bo tho last swine you will over tako around tho circlo, would it bo out of place for me to sug gest the appointment of a custodian for tho Constitution and flag with thirty-six stars at least ad interm ? Think of this, eh ? Sympathizing with yon as I do, in this, your last trial, I am, feelingly yours, i , EX-P. M., ad interim. UVRIilNOTON. o following neat bit of satire, wo Bulii magn from the correspondence of the ington (WW ) Standard. Arlington ; chiefly notod for its magmheent Agricultural I'airs, and its unreasonably Democratic majorities. It is tho onWwiokodness (Democratio viotorics) inBrhich they oxcel. It was reported to ws whilo thore, that thero wV in that stronghold of domocracy a Dwooratio NiaaBR. Wo wero very anxious to see the creature, but was do med tho siiht, as mayor Cayton could not be fwnd, in whose keeping ho was suppose! to k3 lodged ; but we wero in formed w reliable Republicans that the JVager lotod tho straight democratio ticket, Ad that certain of tho domocra cy kissel him, though it was said to tho darkey'&iredit, that ho had to bo held during tm operation. We don't know whetherJrSk.jr4re sold in this nigger yarn or noyftXj tell it as it was told to us by bdRities. Wo don't oxpect to get thVwJR version of the matter until we hejjK from mayor Cayton himself, It waiflrtherptatodi to us that those DemoMts whefkissed thonogor, declar ed puKoly that thero was neither tasto or smjfll about him that was not com mon fimpg the white portion of the oountry. THE GARDEN OF GETIISE9IANE. A traveler in Palcstino writes as fol Ions regarding the cordon of Gethso- mane : It is located in the Yalloy of Jchoshaphnt, at the foot of tho Mount oi Ulivcs, and is an enclosure of per Haps 200 feet square, surrounded by n high stono wall, within which aro eight ollvo trcos, tho most aged wo havo seen, said to bo tho identical trees under which our Lord agonized. Tho old Franciscan Father, who has chargo of tho enclosure, cultivates a variety of hovers with which ho supplies visitors Sovcral times wo spent an hour or two in this placo of tendcrest interest to the Christian heart'. It is scarcely possiblo to visit it, oven with tho doubt which surrounds all tho sucred localities, with out experiencing tho most effecting emotions. Probably henoath somo of theso trees, or their prodocessors, our Lord wept and prayed in view of his great suffering, until in tho intonsity of his agony, "His sweat was as it wore great drops of blood falling down to tho ground." ibis earth sustained his pros trato form and received his bloody swoat and tears. Theso aged trees may havo heard his agonizing cry : "Father, if it bo possible let this cup pass from me," and that sublimity of resignation, "nevertheless not my will but tbino be dono." Theso very stones wero wit nesses of tho unparalleled treachery of Judas, when ho betrayed bis master, even with a kiss. Surely this !b holy ground, if thero be such in any land ! Thero is much probability tho present garden is at loast a portion of tho iden tical retiring placo of tho Savior. The trees aro exceedingly old, but aro not likely to havo lived in tho timo of lhnst, but they may havo succccueu thoso that did, and it is barcjy possiblo that they aro tho identical trees of His day. CASE IN POINT. Wo find, says tho Washington Chron ica, in Sir Waltor Scott's biography of tho lato Duko of York, tho following anecdote, which affords an excellent il lustration of tho case between General Grout and tho President rolativo to tho War Offico : At tho tablo of tho Commander-in-Chief, not many years since, a young officer entered into ajdisputo with Lieu tenant Colonel upon tho point to which military obodienco ought to be carried. Tho young gentleman was at tho timo of life when soldiers aro apt to carry a senso of military duty to on thusinsm. "If tho Commander-in Chief," said the young officor, liko a second aoiu, "should command mo to do a thing which I know to bo civilly illegal, I should not Bcruplo to oboy him, and consider myself as relieved from all responsibility by tho ordors of my military superior." "So would not I," returned the gallant and intelligent officer who maintained the opposito side of tho question ; "I should rather pro fer the risk of boing shot for dioobeJi enco by my commanding officer than hanged for transgressing tho laws and violating tho liborties of the country." "You havo answered liko yourself," said his Royal Highness, whoso atten tion had been attracted by the vivacity of the debate ; "and tho officor would deserve to be both shot and hanged that should act otherwise I trust all British officers would bo rs unwilling to execute an illegal command as I trust the Com-mander-in-Chiof is incapablo of issuing one. Scott's Proso Works, vol. 1, p. 204. INORBABED VEliOOITY OF STREAMS. Experienced navigators plying botweon New York, Key West, Havana and New Orleans, report tho current along the Florida reofs to havo increased from throe and a half miles per hour to five miles por hour almost drawing a stoam vessel upon tho reefs. Thoy report that novor has tho liko occurred before Previous to tho earthquake at St. Thomas and the partial submersion of tho Island of Tortala, thoy had no trouble in running by theso reofs ; but now it is with difficulty thoy can, run ning on the same latitudo and compass, keep their vessels from boing drawn in upon the reefs. An old stoamboat man, who has trav eled tho Ohio river for years, says that the current of that stream has recently increased wonderfully in swiftness. Tho lato freshet subsided moro rapidly than any previous ono. What have Neptune end the water deities to Bay in explana tion? A young woman's conundrum Who is our f ayorite Roman hero ? Marius.
