A man of honor knows what letters to destroy, and he will without fail destroy or return them to the writer. We know that we are recommend ing what to an sffectionute person will teem like a sacrifice almost too great to be made. In this city this morn I ihg there is many a packiigo ol letters dearer to tho holder than untoid wealth letters which havo been read and re read until they aie known by heart which have soothed the sharp est of pains and have illuminated tin darkest hours which havo strength ened a wavering lailh or restored a lost one which were hungrily looked for and rapturously received, and upon every page of hieh is the record of unflinching fidelity and ol love kept bright and unwavering, though the praise of the world had changed to blame and its smile darkened to a down. Wo know that it would be hard to these tcar-bloltcd sheets but it may be best to do so. Think of them read by one lawyer and coma merited upon by another! Think, of the grave man of the bench ponder ing over them through his spectacles Or the gaping juryman trying to com prehend their meaning! Of the gloat ing galleryiug putting upon them its own prurient interpretation! Save them from such desecration by giving their secret to the keeping of tho ele ments.

Does not such tender frankness de mand even a nervous care and caution upon the other iide? A blow lor a kiss is bad enough. Ingratitude is the opprobrium of our nature. But what blow can be bitterer to a sensitive woman than to find confi dence misplaced, trust disregarded, and the sanctum Banctorum of her soul thrown wide open for the curi ous to stare at its hoarded and hal lowed treasure?

This is necessary for many nnd gtave reasons, the greatest being, the pres ence of ladies, who, thongfi appreci ating fully tho prncliral issues ol life nevertheless enjoy the social treat ufforded by the meetings of the grange, and desire, ami jus'ly merit, some time, in which to indulge them selves. And where the whole time ol tho grange is occupied with matters of busbies', there nini-t hp, at least upon the part of tho 'adics and young men, an indifference nnd weariness, which would not exist, was there more sociability, nnd results i:i the non-attendance ol members, especial-' ly lady members, this because the ladies love the grange more lor its social, qualities than nny other ot- tribute. Not that tho ladies lake no interest in the great battle which is to securo to the farmer, his rights and privileges, for our experience ha shown -the contrary. The success of tho grange depends largely upon its social nature and this rmiRt not be made rubveisive to business. The real merits of the grange, and the beneficial results arc not s.0 mnch in dollars and cents as in tho higher principles of intellectual and social improvement, which elevates the photo ol the farmer from mere physi cal labor to that of intelligent think ing men. The orinciples of the grange, is to timultto all legitimate business, by raying cash for whatever is bought, and encouraging homo manufacturing by patronizing them In preference to sending further ofT, and thus fully re alizing tho benefits of the discussions in the grange meetings, will greatly benefit farmers socially and intellect". ually, and as a result of this improve ment, there will le a financial benefit. The false impressions mado upon the minds ol many Patrons by ignorant and cchcmiiig men, particularly us re gards the business phase of the order has done more towards paralyzing the usefulness of the grange, than ony other cause, and the masters and lecturers of the several granges should at once disabuse the minds of the members upon this matter. They should post themsJves thoroughly upon the objects, aims ar.d purposes of tbe order, and then impress them upon the members of the gi ar.ge. C. K. B.

It is a compliment from the Ithedive of 1'igypt to I lie soldier who made ihc great march to the sea. Wc believe that Gen. Sherman cor hi not accept this present; but his daughter, as she holds no office of profit or trust under tin United Slates, may do so, although the fact t'ltit her husband is in the Federal service might, at least on somo old fashioned grounds, he held to pre clude In r from receiving such a very valuable gift from a foreign poten tate. But opart from this considera tion, the question presents itself, what will she do with it ? What does any lady, who docs not wear a ci own, or at leust a coronet, when LlC j jn full dress, do with such a stupendous ornament as this? She mnv it locked up, and on rare occasions feast her cyos by looking at it, or provoko the ervy of her dears est friends by exhibiting it to them. But think of tho anxiety accompany? ing such a possession ! A guard ought to bo set over it right and day. As to wearing it, Ihc owner would, .if she had any taste or sense of eongruiiy, bo utterly nt a loss to find any good reason for so doing. We have no occasions here when such ornaments are in place. Even in Europe they are worn very rarely only on slate occasions or at some very grand festivity. Tho notion that t lie noble won;cn the "lemalc markisses," and such like ol the old world go about blazing with dia monds, even in the evening, is as absurd and unfounded as the belief formerly entertained that Kings and Queens wore their crowns os other persons wore their l.ats. Diamonds or jowtds of ony kind, except a rcod-. cst brooch, a seal ring, or something of the kind, are scarcely ever seen upon ladies of rank in Europe, ex cept on full-dress occasions, and then they are not-a great deal, although what Ihcy do wear is sot to he of the very highest value and quality of its kind. But the diamonds or "fine jewels of any kind on other occa sions would be regarded among fucIi people as evidence of bad taste, and even inferior breeding. : Wahhinctos's Death.

At lust ho sum' moned resolution tobnak finally with the use of tobacco in any form, and after six years of abstinence, writes as follows: "It was for us the commencement of a veritable resurrection ot health, mind, and memory; our ideas have become more lucid, our imagination more vivid, our work easier, our pen quicker, and we have seen gradually return that army of words which had run away. Our memory, in a word, has recovered all its riches, oil its sens sibility. That tobacco, especially in the form of snuff, is a personal cue.ny of memory, which has destroyed, little by little, aud rometimes very prompt ly, cannot be doubted. Many persons with whom we are acquainted M.
