The Merchants' Exchange yesterday yettii iub mowing quotations ou cotton seed : heed, per nver, delivered at Mem phis, $8 per ton. seed, per railroad, delivered at Memphis, $9 per tou. Seed, per wagon, delivered at Mem- pnw, ?3 per ton. Gin seed, delivered at Memphis, $9 per ion. These figures tell a wonderful story to planters, and they also tell them that evpu on the present baii they will receive $100,000 less for this year's product tliau they did for that of last year, with the prospects of a much heavier lo3s if the nefarious Lard bill becomes a law. The millers, although they quote these prices, which are front 'i to $4 km than those ttiat have eovcrunl the market, have not lowered the prico of cotton seed. It is Congress that has forced the reduction, and the partisan National Legislative body is atone re spouii)le lor it.

In re.'sird t tiie catise-; that led to the present striugeney Mr. Win. loin said: 'I do uot attribute it to Wi'l street mauipuiatious though advan'ajc may have been tskea of the existing condi tions to iutcnaify the striugeuey. XeitUer do I attribute the couiiitiou of atl'airs to general speculation through out the country ; neither is it due to au Influx of money Iuto the treasury from customs due. nor internal revenue taxes, for a is shown by the published statetuent the outflow of money from tho Treasury iu pay incut of our boud ed debts iu the last year has exceeded by $11,000,000 Ihc entire receipts. M believe that this state of atl'airs is attributable to the remarkable activity iu btiMucss of all kinds, iu connection with the great advance in value, dur ing the last eighteen mouths. This increase Iu values requires a much larger amount of mouey to handle tho product's henco unequal demand from South and West. The demand may be found iu the largo iu erease of importations which requires tho shipment of gold abroad." In reply to the question as to what futuro measures he had decided to adopt in the present emergency, Mr. Wiudom said : H have named tho $ 16,000,000 as the amount of 4's to be purchased, because this, together with what will be re quired to pay iuterest on tho 6's, will consume the entire available surplus. I have scut a notice to Wai-hingtou to receive oilers for these bond at 12 o'clock next Wednesday, and have ordered the prepayment of iuterest on the 6 per ceut. bonds. I know of nothing else that tho Secretary can do. "There is no doubt but what this will bring full and satisfactory relief, If tho holders of theso bonds are dis posed to co-operato with the Treasury. I do not think there Is danger of serious tiuaucial trouble, but if it docs como it will not bo tho fault of the Treasury. This oiler is exceptional aud mado to meet exceptional condi tions, and is not to bo regarded as the policy of tho Administration."

Tlio followiug we do not publish to fill up, but to convey simple and use ful information to our readers. Such articles should bo cut out and pasted iu a scrap book of useful information. A littlo ammonia iu tepid water will soften and demise tho skin. Spirits of ammonia will often relievo a very severe headache Door plates should bo cleansed by rubbing with a cloth wet lu ammonia and water. If tho color has been taken out of silks by fruit stains, ammonia will usually restore tho color. To brighten carpets wipo them with warm water in which has been poured a few drops of ammonia. Ono or two tablospoonfuls of ammo nia adtled to a pail of w ater will clean windows better than sonp. A .few drops lu a cupiul f water, applied carefully, will removo spots from palutiugs and cliromos. Crease spots may bo taken out with woak ammonia in water, lay soft white papor over and iron with a hot iron. When acid ot any kind gets on clothing, spirits of ammonia will kill it. Apply chloroform to restore tho color. Keep nlcklo, silver ornaments and mounts bright by rubbing w ith woolen cloth saturated iu spirits of ammonia. Old brass may bo cleaned to look liko new by pouring strong ammonia on it mid scrubbing with a scrub brush ; rinse iu clear witter. A tublcHpoonl'ul of ammonia in a gallon of warm witter will often restore colors lu carpets; It will also removo whitewash from them. Yellow stains left by sewing machine oil, on white, tuny bo removed by rub bing tho spot with a cloth wet with ammonia, before washing with soap. Equal parts of ammonia ami tiirpeu tino will take paint out of clothing, eveu if it bo hard and dry. Saturate tho spot as necessary, and wash out In soapsuds Put a tcnspoonfitl of ammonia lu a quin t of wntnr, w ash your brushes and combs in this mid ull grease nud dirt will disappear. Uinsc, shako and dry lu Iho sun or by tho lire. If those who perspire freely would use a littlo ammonia in the water they halho in everyday, it would keep their Ilcsli clean and sweet, doiug away with any disogrccnblo odor. Flannels and blankets may bo soaked iu a pail of water containing one table spoonful of ammonia aud a littlo sttdn. Hub as littlo as possible, anil they will bo whito and clcau ami will .not shrink. Ono tea'poouftil of ammonia to a teaspoonful of water will clean gold or silver jewelry ; a few drops of clear aqua ammonia rubbed on tho under sldo of diamonds will clean them im mediately, making them very brilliant. The Old Adam. It is told of a good old fashioned parson in one of tho hill towns of western Massachusetts that ho gave the following advice to his son, who was about to como to New York to begin a business career: "My sou, of courso it is always wicked to light, and as a Christian minister I must warn you against it. Hut at the same time if you should ever lind yourself lu a fight -mind, I say. lind yourself in a light, with no way out always .on tiuii tlm rkht man is whinned." "But, father," replied the lad, "how shall I know who is tlio nulit man r "Tho other man, of course,'' said the old gentleman. "I" every crisisof life somctliitig must bo takcu for granted, and In a tight you must always assume Hiat the other fellow deserves to bo il.rntlir.l" 'I'lils advice, similar in spirit to that given by Shakr-spearo, indieates that there may tie a goon ileal of linregeiier.'tto human nntiire rven In k quiet country parent.

The speceh of lteprvseutattve Keunedy. of Ohio, atta.viu the Senate and Senator tusv, which ercated a sensation wie u delivered teu days ago, appeared iu tLe Congressional Iteeord litis morn ing after having beeu revised by Mr. Reui.edy. The .-vcli as it appears in the (ovcriiitictu's otlieiul publication of tLe prorci uiujjs of Congress differs from tho speech as origiually delivered, iu the elimination of certain passages which, it has been asserted, ner-j con trary to parliamentary rules and usages. The revised speech is hardly less severe thau as originally delivered, but it is believed by the Congressmen fiom Ohio to bo now iu couforuiily with the rules of the House governing criticisms iu debate of the other brauehes of the Legislature. The tirst part of the speech, which w as devoted to the Federal election bill is uu clmti'fcd. Coming dowu to the attack upon lite S 'tiate, uo eliauge i made in that part referring to the high charac ter and standing of Webster, Clay, Fessendeu aud Wade. Then after declaring that Ohio has twice within a decade been disgraced by Senators choseu "simply because tlioy w ere able to outbid other eon testauts," there Is this sentence: 'Surely the cloak of Senatorial sourtesy has been used to hide the in famy and tho corruption which has dishonored and disgrased a body ithich was ouco the proudest In the land." This is the outy refereuce to tho "cloak of Senatorial courtesy," all that part declaring that Senatorial courtesy had become a stench in the uostrlls of the people aud a cloak to cover up in famies beiug omitted. The ouly changes made so far as .Senator Quay is concerned cousUls lu tho elimination of the word "crimiual," where it occurs iu two places, aud the omission of all nicution of Senator Ouay by uamo. Whero it was suggested lu the original speech that Judas, when he hanged himself, had left "an example for the Matt Quays that Is worthy of their Imitation," there is substituted there for tho following: "Au example worthy of imitation.'' Tho scutenco: "Tho Itepubllcau party eauuot - atl'ord to follow tho lead of a branded criminal," is struck out altogether, and later ou wheu It was said : "lie stauds a convicted criminal before tho bar of public opinion," a chant; o is made so as to read : "lie stands conylcled before tho bar of public opinion.''
