Senator Wade the Officer's Wire.
General Brisbln in The Phlladalp!ua rres. The ladies were never afraid ot Mr. Wade, in certain way. as they often were nt giihlic men. Wade's heart was :i pure as a spring of water, and they seemed to Instinctively under stand be was a good man One- of the brightest and must accomplised la dies in Washington one d.iy Heard lady friend of hers say: "What a rougti old lie ar of n man that Mr. Wnduis!' "Oh no! Olr no!" she exclaimed, holding up both her hands, "don't fay that ; ho is one ot the gentlest and best of men." And good reason had this charming woman to think so, as will presently appear. At the beginning of the War, nn army officer, serving in Texas, sent his resignation to a brother, to be used only la case his State secceded from the Union. The bi other, who was a strong Secessionist, at once sent In the resignation and it was accepted. His State dhl not go oat of the Union, but the officer wentont or the ar-.iy. Soon after forwarding his resigiiatlmi the officer niflde up his mind to stick to the Union come what mhjht. lie behaved with great gallantry, and saved some three hundred soldiers to the Union army when General Twiggs surrendered. With these he nude his way North, and inarched all the way to Fort Riley, Kansas. He was dnmb founded on reaching this place to learn he was no longer an officer, In tact bad been oat service over three months, and had not a cent of pay due him with which to get North. Borrowing some money be hastened to Washing ton and laid his case before the au thorities, but they could not. or would not, do anything for him. '" The Officer, aflervisltlng all the de pni tmeuts, gaydflBp despair, went home and tolillife they must starve, as he could uot go South and fight ngalrift the old flag. The good wife cheered him np, aud for "weeks she went about the Capital trying to get her husband's case reconsidered without success. The lady became discouraged, but she had n large fam ily of little ones, and for their sake she resolved to persevere and si-e what to do when a friend of hers said to her: "Why don't you go and see old Ben Wade of Ohio?" "Oh !" said, she, "they 6av he Is so rough; n terrible man indeed, and I am in dread ot going to him." "Never mind what they say," re plied the friend, "you go and see old Ben, and yon can tell U3 atterward about his peculiarities." The next day the lady did call at Mr. Wade's house, and learning he was in, tremblingly approached the dread presence. There was noth ing forbidden In Mr. Wade's looks, and she soon, under the most gentle encouragement, codBdedto bira every thing about her husband's ease. When she came to speak ot her child ran she quite broke down and sobbed aaost bitterly. Mr. Wade, who bas been listening to tier attentively, rose from his chair, banded her a glass of ater, and said kindly, "Pray do not 7, madam; come yourself; it may t be so bad t case as yon imagne, id you should not despond until I h ive tried what I can do about it." The lady looked at him through her cars, and, as the said afterwards, felt ike bugging him around the neck. Ills were, indeed, the first kind words sbehad beard for weeks from any one in power, and she naturally became at once deeply Impressed with Mr. .:de'8 kindness ot heart. She dried Lit eyes and told the old Senator all s Mint it. Mrs. Wade, who heard this ;.od lady's story, and was affected to i b bcsclf, and placing her arm t.jittit the distressed sister's waist.

Discrimination against the freedom of the press will arouse the entire conutry to ventilate this anti-re-pnhlican practice in Congress of giving bounties and privileges to favored clas ses andjdisci-iininatingjigainst and op pressing other 'classes, to huiliKup, the fortune of the favored few. No indus try deserves to live that has to he sup ported nnd sustained by taxing other people to build it up. Such a policy is in direct conflict with the principles of political equality on which our free in stitutions are organized. Whenever the Government is used to make money for certain classes, it eeasos to lie a repub lic aud will soon build up an odious ar istocracy to live from the labor of the great producing classes. Such legisla tion is going back to tho oppressive methods practised by the arbitrary Gov ernment of the Old World. It";is mak ing slaves of the masses and enabling the favored few to acquire fortunes from their lalor, to be spent In the extrava gance of debauchery and corruption. Let us look at the practical effect of this monopoly on paperrandjprinting material. The publisher is forced to lose money or advance the price of his paper to his subscribers. So we see at last that it is the subscriber or tho consumer of the paper who has to bear the heavy advance' that the manufacturers of the type nnd the paper arc extorting. These monopolies to the paper and tho typo manufacturers are repugnant to the spirit of the constitution guaranteeing the freedom ofjthe press. Wo see that Mr. Buckner, a member of Congress from Missouri, has introduced a bill to repearthis tax levied upon the dissemi nation of knowledge amongst the peo ple. If there ever was an age or a coun try where the spreading of knowledge amongst the people should be unrestrain ed, it is this. AUJthe methods of the past are giving way to a new dispensa tion, and the press of the United States has become the crucible lnwhich all new ideas, theories . and creeds arc tested. If tho papers of each Congressional District in tho West ;Would hold their representative in Congressjrcsponible for his vote upon this typo and paper monopoly, we would soon have this vestigo of oppression and tyranny repealed. In fact, if the entire protec tive system was repealed, the people woulget rid of aliqut. fifty thousand federal office holders- who are con suming their substance worse than the grasshoppers, or the locusts of Egypt. If it was provided that each State should furnish its prorata of the fed eral levcnue according to population its State officers could collect it and it would bo paid as cheerfully as taxes to support tho State Governments. We have too much government and too much politics in this country for the people to advance in freedom and de velop our free institutions as they were originally organized.

The late Khedive of Egypt made Gen. Sherman present of a necklace worth $200,000. To this amount every Feliah on the Nile, from its mouth to the cat aracts, contributed of his bloom and sweat. The General gave the neck lace to his daughter as a wedding pres ent, and Congress remitted tho SUO.OOO duties on the gems. But the daughter's husband, Lieut. Fitch, of tho navy, a citizen of St. Ixmis, could not afford to pay the tax the State levied on dia monds, so Gen. Sherman returned the necklace to the Khedive. But the latter being too much of a grand seigneur lo stand such nonsense, sent it back again, aud said it was Intended not fur ono. but for all of Gen. Sherman's daugh ters. So the gems in the necklace were mounted in four magnificent pendants, four pairs of solitaire car-rings and eight rings for the Ueneral's four daugh ters. It still remains a question, in ethics, however, whether the necklace does not really belong to the Khedive's creditors, he being n bankrupt.

Its ingredients arr bo skilfully oi bined, that the full alterative effect of each is assured, and while it is so ruild as to be hannlvss even to children, it is still so offectual as to purge oat from tht system those impurities and corruptions which develop into loathsome disease. Ths reputation it cHjoys is derircd freni its eures, aud the confidence which f minent physicians all orer Uie couu rejKise in it, prove their cxperiwicc its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues have accumulated, aud are constantly eiug received, and as many of these cases ar; pblicly known, they famish convincing evidence of the superiority of this Snr- e i? -v- i sapanua over every other alterative edicine.
