General Schenck's ideas of equalizing protection is to lug into the protected lists as much Western produce as he can. This would bo very well if he could only find some process thereby to enhance the price of our grt at staples, as wheat, corn, bacon, beef, &c. But as he can not, he goes as far as possible m that direction, and is fierce on flax, hemp, and as for jute- he is tremendous on jute. While getting up his bill and aggravating the real prohibi tionists as much ns we free-traders do for they pronounce bira bo ignorant as not to know that real practical protec tion means cheap labor and cheap mate rial I say while getting up his bill, he called upon the Hon. Oakes Ames to help him put the duty on jute. Amts positively declined. - This Oakes Ames is one or the mem bers of Congress who votes money di rectly into his own pockets, for he is at the head of one of the heaviest" iron manufactories in the United States. ,lle makes shovels, and while be votes with the other hungry hounds for a heavy duty; on the mamifactured shovel, he keeps down the duty on the raw mate rial, which raw material is scrap iron. "I want vou to help ine on jute, cried Sclienck j t ' , Now look here, Schenck," responded Ames, "don't yott see that if you go on protecting everything; you destroy pro tection ?" - "No, I don't," responded S. "Well, vou iust do. We must have cheap material and cheap labor, and if we don t get these, wc nave no protec tion. Nowj'ouput up material onus, am1 you put up labor by adding to the cost of living, don't you see ?" "I see," responded" the Chairman of Ways ana Means, "that, m your selfish greed, protection is a good thing so long as you make money by it, and not so good when any one else has a chance." "But that is not protection ; we want to' protect the manufacturer," roared Ames. "There is no sense in attempting to protect materiaL It is Bkilled labor that has to: be built tip. Now, how could I make the great American Shovel at a profit if scrap iron were pnt up on me?" - - "You will not help me on jute ?" ask ed Schenck. "No, I won't, because; " -"You will not?" "No, I won't!" "Then I'll be d d if I don't go for a duty on scrap iron !" "Schenck you re not serious r "Never more so, Okev. in my life ; I am going to stick you, Okey, on scrap iron : so look out for the Ureat Ameri can Shovel 1" And sure enough the new bill puts up scrap iron, and the Honorable Ames is standing on his head, which, by. the by, is about as natural and safe a position as old Shovels could assume.

' ' ' "Let nic sec, began Mr. Wortlen, in response to a request Id tell a story, while we were seated around the stove in Hill's Mrroom. OLe blustering nijiht last winter. "Let me see. Twenty-two years ago I entered the store of Day t Co. as clerk, and twenty-one years ago, on the nieht of the first of l-ebrnary, had an adventure which I shall never forget." We drew our benches nearer the stove and the retired merchant, wlid wc knew had a good stdry in stdre fdr tls. At my side, on the oaken settee, sat a man judging by his silvered hair of about five-and sixty. He was a traveler, and a stranger to our cutiee party, and during our conversation, previous to the mer chant's narrative, had been taciturn and moody. But when Worden began his story his eyes were fixed upon his face. "I was not seventeen," continued tUd narrator, "when I became a clerk, and it was a great event in my life. The firm told me I would have to sleep in the store. 1 felt proud of being allowed to do so ; it showed that they had great faith in my honesty. So a lounge was brought in and placed under the counter, and there, after locking the door.I would lie and dream till daylight. "During the first part of the winter of 43, our neighboring county (Herkimer) was infested with a gang of daring rob bers, whose depredations were both bold and alarming. f he good people became excited ; and well they might, for the villains scrupled not to take the life of any one who dared to defend his prop erty. . 'Vigilance committees "were formed and the gang broke" Up. Several of the villains were captured, amf their cases decided by Judge Lynch. Those who escaped the committee went into the neighboring counties, and ours received a few. During January several bold rob beries were committed in Dialton, which threw our citizens into the highest state of excitement ; but all efforts an 1 those made were strenuous ones to catch the robbers were unavailtug. "Day & Co., during the cxcitemont.saL back in their easy chairs laughing at the people's scare. They fancied their store sccure,and when I asked to be permitted to keep a gun at my bedside, twitted me at what they termed my cowardice. It was not cowardice, boys ; but I wanted to give the robbers a bold reception if they paid me a Visit. I thought they could not fail to do this, for my employ ers held in their hands miny sums of money belonging to other people; in short, they were the bankers ot tne vil lage. , The money was enclosed in a safe which 1 knew would not resist an expe rienced burglar. But Day & Co. thought their safe secure, and refused to grant my request. "I had made up my mind to arm my self let the firm call me what it wished. I lived in Montauk then, a few miles from Dialton, And one Sunday night, the last of January, when 1 returned from a visit home, I brought along an old saber, which my grandfather had used against Saraton, at Sanders' Creek. That Sabbath night, as I. well remember, I did not retire until near midnight, for.T sat up polishing the old blade. At last, when the light shining upon it, blinded me, I put it in the sheath and stood it against the head of the lounge and went to sleep, feeling that I could overcome a dozen of the fiercest robbers that ever made woman or child tremble at the mention of their deeds. "The following morning ushered in the last month of winter, and I forgot to stow the old arm away out of sight of the firm. When Dewecs, the junior partner, stepped behind the counter my preparations for defense met his gaze." "Well, John!" he said, seizing the Revolutionary relic, "what in the world are you going to do with this ?" "I intend to. defend myself and the safe against robbers," I answered blush ing. 1 "I believe you're crazy, John," lje said ; I would like to see you wield this clumsy old thing. Take it home, or sell it for trash. Day and I will have a hearty laugh at your expense." "I do not care for your laugh, Mr. Dewecs,' I answered ; "and as for the saber, it shall remain here." "Do as you please, John ; and, if j-ou say 80,1 shall purchase a dozen cemetery lots in which you can enter your dcai But, boy, look at the doors; suppose a robber should pick the locks, the strong bolts would remain, and ten men could never remove them." "True," I replied ; "but breaking bolts is not the work of an experienced rob ber. He would cut a hole tlirough the door and insert his bauds and push back the bolts." ' " "No use to talk to you, John," he said turning to rearrange some boxes on the shelves; "but if a robber should attempt to enter, I'll iucrcasc j-our wa ges." "The old weapon was replaced, and when Day entered, the firm had a hearty laugh at my fears. "When night came I built up a rousing fire, and sought my couch beneath the counter. Outside it was .vcrj- cold, and the snow was falling in blinding flakes. I assure you ,1 felt comfortable under the additional coverlets Mrs. Day had sent me that morning. Before I retired I had unsheathed the saber, so that in case of emergency, it would make no unnecessary noise. "It must have been near midnight when I awoke. The storm wrs still ra ging, and the room retained but a small degree of heat from the stove. I was about to rise to replenish the Arc, for we did not want our large stock of ink to freeze, when I heard a noise as though a rat was gnawing for dear life.. I listened, and soon discovered that the noise wa3 at the front and double door. I rose and cautiousby struck a light,and donned my pants and stockings. The lamp I turned low, and grasping the old saber approached the door. "Sure enough, the noise was on the Outside, and I knew the man was cutting a hole below the strong iron bar. The work accomplished, he could insert his hand, noiselessly remove the bar, and push the door open. With batei breath aud wildly beating heart I listenod to the sawing ; the saber was poised above my head aud alongside of the door. Plainer and plainer grew the noise, arid at last a circular piece of "the door was pushed a little inside. Then I saw two fingers grasp and draw it out "I waited for the insertion ol the hand, for I had determined to sever it with the saber. I heard no noise outside, and supposed, the robber was alone. Not long did I wait, however for the reap pearance of the hand. It was thrust in and the fingers moved toward the bar. I struck with all the strength of my right arm. The robber's hand fell at my fect.and the bleeding stuuip was quickly withdrawn. "Then above the war oT the storm, which seemed to increase at e'ver'y mo ment I heard words and the noise of a person forcing his way tlirotigli heavy drifts. ' "'I can never use my right hand again God! I heard the man groau. 'Oh, I might have known that that strippling was fully armed. Curse my folly!' "I picked up the severed member and cxaniined it at the light. It looked as if it belonged to a man in the meridian of life, and the little finger was encircled by a heavy gold ring, with a solitaire dia mond setting. It was a right hand and the tip of the tRumb was missing. I wrapped the hand in cotton.laid it in the desk, and replenishing the firo, watched the door uiitil,through the fatal opening, I saw limbs bending under their load of snow. . "I opened the door,but saw no tracks : it had snowed all night and covered up all traces ot the robber. When Dewees came he always readied the store half an hour before Day I showed him the nolo ana cue nana. Ut course he was ast'onisked. "By George; boy !" he exclaimed ; "ydiir fears were hot groundless. You mav keen that saber till it rusts : and from this moment your wages stand in creased" - "Of course, boys ; 1 was thaukful , be cause he had knocked under to me, and because my wages were increased. Great search was made for the robber, but he was not found, and I remained in possession of the rin? and the hand. Five year's later 1 left Dialton.whidh had not been disturbed bv robbers since that memorable night. I kept the robber's hand in spirits for near flftdeii years when, neglecting it, it spoiled, and I bu rled it in my lot." V But what did you do'with the ring r asked the traveler, when: Mr Worden concluded. I had noticed his agitation. "Kept it Nothing could have induced me to part with it." "Would you not return it to the own er?" "Perhaps he did not come by it hon estly he was a robber, you-know"?'" The traveler blushed. "He did, sir," he said. - r "What do you know about the ring and the robber?" said Mr. Worden .v- "A good deal. Look there!" and turning up his sleeve he displayed to our gaze a handless wrist. "The robber !" the ex-merchant and half a dozen of our party exclaimed. I for one, could not keep back the word "robber!" "Yes, ir," said the stranger ; "robber once, but one, thank God, no longer. The loss of my right hand reformed me. Oh,' never shall I forget that night the march through the drifts to my compan ions in the suburbs of Dialton ; how I was COtnpelled, to save rny life, to hold snow upon the stump. While my Com rades in crime were binding up the Woun ded member, I swore by my God to for sake my calling. I have kept my oath. I sought employment when tile wound had healed, and, learning to use my left hand, was successful. I have amassed wealth wealth enough to enable me to spend my remaining days in traveling for pleasure. And now, my reformer," he smiled, "I would ask you to. return my ring. Did I come by it dishonestly, I would not niake the request; but as there is a God, I did not. It is my mother's. Upon her death-bed,one year before I fell iuto bad company, she gave it to m and told me to wear it always. She placed it on my finger, and I wore it through all my burglarious operaMonsJ Give me the ring, sir, arid name your price." Mr. Worden raised his hat, and wc saw the ring. It was very beautiful, and must have cost not a small amonut of money. The merchant" 6lowly drew it from his finger, upon which it had glis tened for twenty years, and passed it over to its loiig4ost owner. The stran ger drew out a long roil of greenbacks. "Keep your money," said Mr. Wor den; "I have enough , of that The re turning of the ring is reparation for the injury I inflicted upon'3'.ou.v "I am sorrj", sir, that jou will not ac cept the money," returned the stranger. "I value this ring above riches. Come, let us bo friends. Excuse my left hand," and, laughing, the two men grasped hands in a hearty shake. "And now, gentlemen, step up to the bar and drink. Had I not abandoned tlhabit long ago. I would join you." We arose, approached the bar,' and in a bumper drank the health of the stran ger. "Now, landlord,'1 he said, "show me my room. I can enjoy sleep to night for once again I possess that dear old ring. Good night, gentlemen." I never learned his name. Diftsallsf action With Congress. Wasihxgtox, April 21. Tlic feeling throughout the country at the. dilatori ousui'ss of Congress in acting ou meas ures to reduce taxation and settle the financial question, is finding veut in nu merous letters to members. Yesterday one from a Massachusetts manufacturer to the member of his District read - in this wise: "I am at a loss what to do while the tariff agitation is going on. If I keep my mill a running, I shall lose moncj', for merchants aid consumers are holding off and refusing to buy." Another from a firm in Springfield, Illi nois, says: "Defeat the funding bill,je ducc taxation and give ns more currency, or the Democrats will carry tho State next faU." Senator Sprague thinks, says a Wash ington correspondent, that the effect of negro voting in Rhode Island woula ul timately be to make it a Democratic State by the irritation it naturally ere ates amoug th? white woikingmen.
