It was one of those clear bright winter nights known only to those who Lave visited the southern shores of Spain, that a merry party of young men sat alter dinner in tneir mess room In Gibraltar. ' They belonged to one of our most distinguished re gimenls, whose gallantry in the Held had won them a reputation they well aes?rv-ea. Spain at that time was infested bv targe ana poweriui Dana or high way robbers, their chief being the celebrated Jose Marit, whose trres- ence struck terror into the hearta'of all those who, either for pleasure or business had to travel through An- itaiusia. tfomors had lust reached Gibraltar of a daring ittack made bv Jose's band on the travelers in the diligence between Malffga and Gran ada, who, in spite of having a strong body of mounted carabineros to es con mem, naa iarea very uaulv in the encounter. ;. "I should be very sorry," said Ma jor Clarke, "to have to travel through upain at pre&ent; lor i am surehis troup of Jose Maria's .would sur round the whole of our regiment, and strip us 01 an we possess belore we could get through the mountain pas ses." "I would not attempt it for a thou- saud pounds," answered Captain Lei cester; "for I am certain that fellow Jose would hans you on the first tree if he found nothing to plunder; and if he discovered you were a Brit ish oiheer belonging to this garrison, would keep you a close prisoner till you were ransomed. Evry one present had his say: some thought they might escape the great chief; others were ready to bet any oaas against it. In the midst of all this conversa tion, one of the captains of the regi raent, who had as yet not given his opinion, quietly stated he would take short odds that he would start three days, should he be able to obtain leave of absence, and ride alone from Gibraltar to Madrid, with out being robbed, hanged, or other wise ill-treated by Jose Maria or his band. . ... . . . : . "Done!" says one voice; "Done!" says another; and so on, till my- old friend found himself beset all sides by youngsters anxious , to lay. him any odds. ; - . .i i -. "I thinkj Turner, you are very wrong, saia Alaior Clarke, "to un dertake so foolish and dangerous an expedition; for although you, can peak I" rench, you do not know a word of Spanish; and remember, your bet is to go alone, so you can not even have the advantage of a Rock scorpion" who understands English as your guide. My friend Mr. Powell, says jou will never ac complish it. All ej-es turned toward Mr. Powell, Gibraltar merchant, that evening a guest of Major Clarke, and whose ex perience made every one anxious to hear his opinion the subject. 1 "I should strongly recommend you, Captain Turner," said Mr. Pow "Not to undertake the Journey. The Major says you neither speak the language nor know the country; and at present, I am told, the whole AndaluSia ia infested by these robbers; therefore you are more than likely to fail into their hands, as Jose himself is in this neighbor hood. . Annul the bets at once, and lo not apply for leave. I am sure you will to morrow be heartily glad have taken my advice. 'rso, said the quiet Captain Tur ner; "when I once make up my mind a thing I like to carry it out- Be sides, we have always heard that the said. Jose Maria, is a fine noble fel low, who has in hia rough way done many generous acts, that I should not mind making his acquaintance, even at the risk of having to walk all the way home to Gibraltar, sup posing thev should take a fancy to my horse, which is not a very good one. I bought the animal a short time since at St lioque, and certain cave very little for hiin." Oners were maile scratch all bets ; but nothing would do, for Captain Turner had made up his mind to go, and "o he would. The rest of the evening was spent in the ante-room, some olficers play ing whist, others a round game. None were absent save the gallant Captain Turner, who went off to write his application for leave of ab sence, and make what little prepara- tions were necessary ; for a two month's journey in Spain, where a man's whole kit is stowed away in two saddle bags slung on each side of hia horse, ; , The following allter noon saw Captain Turner's name in garrison orders as having obtained leave of absence to visit Spain. The'next morning, a few minutes after gun-fire, Captain j Turner, and three brother officers anxious to give him a pass de conduitc, were seen riding; through the beautiful Almeda gardens, full even at that time of the year ot aweet-scentea geraniums. Their passing thro, the main street did not attract much notice at that : of he a in ; i a is of as the out of ing dle he out t8 the on ley, so till as early hour of the mourning; and with the exception of an occasional shouldering of arms by some sentry of their own regiment, the four horse men might have said they had left Gibraltar without meeting a human being. - When they had gone through all the gates, were fairly on the neutral ground, with the Queen of Spain's chair staring them n the face, the three friends again endeavored to dissuade Captain Turner from un dertaking the journey; bjit nothing, they said, had any affect, and after escorting him about two miles along the eastern coast, they parted, wish ing him all possible success and a happy return home. It would be needless to follow our enterprising traveler along that beautiful cost till he reached Malaga, at which place he arrived safely, having preferred that rout to the un!nown (to him at least) snort cut tnrougn the cork woods, , the mountain-passes ' of RoDda, and so on to cordova, . where you met the ' great ,:Camino Real," or Royal road, which goes fronl Se: tille to Madrid. Captain Turner having sufficient time efore him was not going to make a toil of pleasurej and there fore remained' en route wherever he pleased, and accordingly decided on spending two days in Malaga. ' ' v As I am not writing a, hand-book Spain, I sail leave our friend to all the sights of that old towa by himself. ' -" ' : ' ' On the second morning after his arrival Captain Turner started for Greneda; and after an early break fast and sundry inquiries from el inozo, or waiter, who could speak . o jitte English (of which he was' very Iiroud), as to .which gate he was to eave town by to get on the high road, to Grenada, he fairly got under way, and it was not long ere he found himself ascending the beautiful hill which you get the first glimpse of the Sierra Nevada. With the exception of a few lines mules laden with wood or sand, sur traveler encountered nothing to intimidate him, or cause him to re gret having left his comfortable quarters in Gibraltar. When he reached what was then called "Laventa Nueva," or New Inn, found sitting in the large kitchen group of very suspicious looking men. On his entrance they ceased talking and singing; and turning to examine the intruder from head to! foot, asking him several questions Spanish, which he was not able to' answer.' ' - . - - . j The landlord began laying a small white table-cloth at the end of the long table nearest the fire, and mak ing signs with his hands and mcuth soon understood that the new-comer would like something to cat. Cap tain Turner, with the aid of a voca bulary, informed his host that he not only wanted una comida (a dinner), uut una cama ( a bed ) as well. ' This piece of news seemed to give general satisfaction ; and the moment they found he could manage to say few words in Spanish, they sur rounded him, and a volley of ques tions ensued, as to where he came from, where he was going, etc. ' The dinner,' which in those small ' inns consists always of the olla podrida, ready at a moment s notice, never being moved from tho left hand side the large' chimney-piece, where, nothing but wood is burnt and ashes seldom taken away, it al ways retains degree of heat. The meal being over, curiosity of tlie au dience subsided, and the singing and abbcring recommenced. Captain Turner, lighting his cigar, strolled to see how his horse had fared; and after a short walk up the road to look at the beautiful valley on the right, in autumn the vines groan un der the weight of enormous bunches muscatel grapes, which in those daj's were often left to rot on the ground, he retraced his steps, and requesting to be called very early, retired to rest The following morn- j at sunrise our traveler was in sad once more; and as he had been informed in Malaga by the British Consul that the road from thence to Greneda, though the most piatures que, was by far the most dangerous, determined to keep a sharp look on all sides. No one was to be seen about that morning save a' few peasants going their work, and he began to be lieve that there was not word of i truth in all that was said about the dangers of the country; when reaching the splendid pass which leads you to the first view of the an cient city of Grenada on the oppo site mountain, with the beautiful valley,so truly called the Golden Val beneath you. he heard a shrill I whistle, and a noise above his head like the sound of men running over very uneven ; ground. .His very horse semeed to be awarejthat dan ger wa.!uear;for pricking up his ears, and turning his head towards that side of the mountain from whence came the sound, he started off of hia own accord into that sort o'f amble peculiar to his race. ' ' ';Be quiet, you old fool! what are you afraid ol" said his master; but stiil tlie animal increased his pace he had got through the pass and was begining to desend the moun tain, and not till then . was our friend able to get him into his usual walking pace. Captain Turner look ed on every side sud could see no one; but on reaching the' next turn ing down the road suddenly found if by magic, a remarkable hand some Spaniard long side of him,dres sed according to the fashion of the couutry, who Dr a few seconds seemed entirely engrossed by the sight of our lonely traveler and . his steed. After the usual morning sa lute, answered by Captain Turner with an unmistakable English accent the Spaniard rained up his horse, and with the usual '-Vaya vm. con Dios," turning to the right-about; but before going many yards sang! out at the top of his voice, "No vale nada." (Not worth anything). A few hours more found our friend in that long narrow street leading to the Pla3sa,wherc the prin ciple hotel in Granada was then sit uated; where, after resting himselt and ordering hia dinner, he strolled out to hear tho military band per lorm in front of the Governor's house. Grenada is much gayer than most Spanish towns .generally are, having several good caffea, a capital theater., and many other places of public amusement. The next day our friend found there no less than three English families in the hotel, besides sveral others residing in. the town. In what part of the globe can an Englshman go where he will not find some of his countrymen? Captain Turner very soon made tne acquaintance 01 two j-oung men staying in the same hotel; who, having been there for some time, volunteered to lionize him all over the place. They did it to perfection; show ing him all the principle rooms in the Alhambra, and, with the aid of an old map they had purchased, de scribed what that beautiful palace must have been before King Fredi nand thought fit to demolish part of it, and build stables for his horses. ' After a walk through the curious old gardens, and a good look at the tree under which the last of the Moorish kings was slain, the party descended into the town, and after duly inspecting all that was to be seen there, returned to the hotel.. ! Here again our friend wos advised not to undertake his rash journey ; for at the table-d'hotel, happening to be seated next to an English lady, the coversation turned on the state of the country, and when she heard of Captain Turner's intended trip to Madrid, she did all in her power to pursuade him not to go farther. , Having spent three very pleasant days in Grenada, where for the first time since he left Gibraltar he had heard his native language spoken, Captain Turner started for the mountainous but picturesque road that leads you to Ciudad Real, over the bridge called the Sierra Moren. It was on the seventeenth day of purfriend's departure from Gibraltar that, late in, the afternoon, we find him trotting up the above mountain, hoping to reach a small roadside inn ere the sun had disappeared behind some of the enormous rocks that surrounded him, when he was over taken by a Spaniard on horseback, i At first Captain Turner thought it was tne same person he had met before reaching Grenada; but on a second look he soon discovered that it was far a higher stamp of a man than tho one before described. I la dres3 both were much alike; but the appearance of the latter was so aristocratic, and the way he man aged his beautiful black horse, which seemed to understand every word his master said, so delighed Captain Turner, that for a time he was at 11 loss which to admire most, the man or the horse. Like most Spaniards, who delight in admira tion, our newcomer rode on for a few minutes without attening to any thing bub his horse; and after show ing the noble animal off to the great est advantage, he inquired of our friend where he was going, and find ing Spanish was not familiar to him, immediately began the conversa tion in French. "I suppose," said the Spaniard, "that you intend to spending the night at the little inn yonder, for )'ou would have a very long ride be fore you get to the next one; be sides, there so many roads branch ing off this, that you would not know which to take if you have not traveled this way before." On arriving at the inn Captain Turner remarked how attentive everybody was to his fellow-companion. It was evident that he was no stranger to them all. , "I will see that your horse is well cared for, senor; and if you have no objections, we will dine together." ! This being agreed upon, they both sat down to a very good meal, which, considering the wild part -of the country they were in, appeared very much as if some one of importance had been expected. After dinner the conversation turned on Madrid, and after inquiring where he was going, in a joking way, remarked that he had better look ont for Jose Maria and hia band, who were in great force in these parts. Captain Turner, either from feel ing3 of great confidence and liking for his new acquaintance, or from a, feeling of disgust at every one warning him against the bandit chief, began singing his praises as if he were his best friend; and after re peating' the same words he had made nse of in the mess-room on the memorable evening when the bets were made, cofiding to his compan ion all that had taken place in Gib raltar, and what had induced him to take this trip to Madrid. The Spaniard seemed greatly amused -by all this; and after a couple hours' chat, during which time a great many or Captain Tur ner's cigars had been smoked, they rose to retire to rest. "I shall be off very early in the morning," said our friend "and as you seem to like my cigars, pray al low me to offer you a bundle or. thsm. "Thank you," answered the Span iard; "they are certainly very good. And now let me offer you something in exchange; and drawing his large Spanish knife from his belt, he cut one of the silver buttons off his jacket. "There, said he "is a pass for you all through hpain. lo-mor-row, before you have gone many miles you will be stopped ; but the moment you see the men approach ing, show them this button, and not one of them will interfere with you, for I am Jose Maria." He then shook hands warmly with Captain Turner, and then retired. The latter could not sleep for sev eral hours, thinking over his strange adventure, and regretting he had not sooner discovered who the stran ger was. The following morning, ere he started, Capt. Turner looked every where, hoping to . see the great man again, but was forced to take his departure without doing so. A few miles from the inn he found himself overtaken by four men on horseback, who began talking to him in Spanish. Recollecting the button, he took it from his pocket he showed it to them. Tho effect was magical; three of them immedi ately took a path leading up tho side of the mountain and disappeared; the fourth fullback and accompanied the Captain, but at a respectable dis tance. The latter now considered himself safe, but soon found out his mistake; for on coming to a sharp turn in the road ho suddenly found himself surrounded, two men seized his reins, two laid hold of his saddle bags, while the others pointed their carbines at him. Luckily for him, tbefore he could get the button oat for he was- so taken by surprise that he lost hia presence of mind his mounted escort rode up at full gal lop.cry ing out at the top of h is voice : -uuiton, button r te has a button !" All hands were off at once, ad the men retired behind a rock to their hiding place. ; . . .- ; We must now follow Captain Tur ner to Madrid, the remainder of his journey having been performed with out, any lurther- adventure, his mounter! e9Cort never having left him till within five miles of the capital. A fortnight after . his arrrival in Madrid, Captain Turner was induced by some friends to go to a masked ball, it being Carnival timo Thv juou uuue supper, when s very handsome woman came up to the ta ble where they were sitting, leaning on the arm of a tall, fine-looking man! In a moment the Captain reono-niori Jose Maria for it was htv-and, jumping up, was going to meet him, when he was arrested in' his move ments by a warning gesture from the latter. Shortly after, . having conducted the lady to her seat, Jose approached Captain Turner, and said ia a low voice. ! "You were once in my power, I am now in yours. If you wish to win your bets, aad return, ia , safety to Gibraltar, be silent." ! After a pleasant stay in Madrid, Captain Turner thought it time to retrace his steps to Gibraltar, and had not proceeded many miles when he observed a mounted escort follow ing, which never lost sight of him till he waa safely landed in Gabral- AN INFAMOUS WAGER. An Invitation to Assassinate Grant. Scarcely had Abraham Lincoln taken his seat ia the Presidential chair before certain newspapers ia the North and and in the South be gan to hint vaguely that some cour ageous person would perform a pa triotic duty by taking away the life of a mm whom they were pleased to call a tyrant On crazy enthusiast in the south affiixed his own name to an advertisement offering a large reward to any villian that would un dertake the murderous work. But little attention was paid to these in famous threats. They were sup posed ' to proceed from cowardly scoundrels who who would shrink from the danger attending such an undertaking. Nevertheless they kept on with their proposals until at last one lunatic, possessing more daring than the rest, struck the fatal blow aad earned the promised reward, but perished miserably before he clntch'd the price of blood. , . , The same wretched scoundrels are reviving their old advertisements, w5' 'ntent to persuade some mad rr assassinate President Grant 1 e -iwasian, a disreptnable news p ye: published at Lexington, Mis scu.i, is the subsidized organ of tese cowardly conspiritars. In the issue of the 11th inst,' the first col umn of the editorial page is devoted to a double leaded article in which the duty of assassinating "tyrants" is enforced by examples cited from the Sacred Scriptures and from an cient history. ' We quote a few sen tences to show the spirit of the whole column of raving villainy. . The first is a blasphemous paraphrase of a passage from the new testament, "It is expedient that one man should die for the people,' and that the whole nation perish not" "A. Lincola---that ruthless embodiment of knavery vulgarity ana triumphant hate was made to bound the river Styx; so may his every criminal successor fall by the hand of a patriot assassin." "If tlie Roman Casar, surrounded by the glittering pomp and . circum stances of war, and mighty armies of obedient minions, could be reached and slain by the subtile blow, why not our Seizer yet feel the keen blade of an avenging hand?" .

" ; Silver has'been so' long out" of practical use as a circulating medium in this country that a great deal of wonder has been expressed that in the midst af: the recent panic, it should have been found so abundant and cheap. A few facts "conccrnin " the supply and consumption of silver will explain what seems to be re- i markable. It is a well known fact that India Is tho point of ultimate absorption for both gold and silver com. Tne vast population or tnat immense realm attracts aad absorbs a certain ' quantity of specie each . year, which, being reeoined, never : gets out into ihe circulation of tVe . world again. . Moneyed men in Eu- . rope understand the exact extent of this drain and provide for it Dur ing the pastvear Gcrmanv " rtpinc flooded with specie from the French indemnity payments, has demone tized silver, that is, deprived it of ' current value as German coin. This has thrown . into, market a great quantity of silver, more than enough to fill the demand of India, so that the ordidary drain upon the United States the usual source of supply for all the world i3 for this year at : least cut off. 1 At the same time the product of our mines has trebled, ;1- - ver bullion is piled up about .the mines of Utah, Colorado and Nevada , literally in .xords,where it.can be bought by the car . load at eighty cents currency per standard ounce, or about ninety-eight cents to the dollar, leaving two cents for the cost of transportation and coinage and still keeping the cost of a silver dol lar within the, par value of a greea- back one. At the same time Anieri-' cans have flocked to the mines of ' Mexico, and by their superior ener gy and enterprise and the use of im proved methods in mining aad refin ing have raised tha silver prodact of Mexico to $20,000,000 a year, more t than the production of the most prosperous years under the old Span- , isa proprietors. The consequence is, that the markets of this country are fairly glutted with silver, mostly ia the form of bullion. The arts and manufactures nse enormous quanti ties, but with all their activity they can use only about 20 per cent of the product, leaving 80 per ceat, to be stored or shipped in other coun tries. ' Now that the foreiga demand ha3 been suspended for a time, the treasury has only to set all the mints to work, and withia three moaths the couatry can have "hard money" to its heart's content , The amount now on hand, added to six moaths, product of the miaes, would, if coined, load dowa the pockets of the ' nation. But who wants silver when . they can get greenbacks? 1776. Centennial Exhibition. 1876. i This ' Exhibition ; is intended to show the great progress of our Re public during the first one- hundred years of its existence. We shall be' oa trial before the world, and there i should not be an American or adopt- . ed citizen withia our borders who will not do his part in thi3 great un dertaking.. Our resources, manufac- t tares and mechanical inventions have already, commanded the respect of the whole world. .In the various Great Exhibitions of Europe, Amer icans have invaribly secured the larg- ' est .number of prizes In' proportion to the number of Exhibitors. - This ; having been done at such great ex pense, how much more important it is. to secure a complete and exhaus tive representatioa at home? jThe buildings designed for the In ternational Exhibition at Fhiladel- ' poia, will cover some thirty or forty acres. They will be built of iron and glass. Imagine one large building covering more space than the Fair ground in Fremont, and in place of 8,000 or 10,000 people, over 100,000, and you will have some idea of the -grandeur of this Exhibition. Ia ad- 1 dition to what will be shown by our own citizens, all nations of the world have been lavited to contribute, and it is proposed by many of these to erect magnificent buildings at their J own expense, showing ' the ' style of architecture and manners and cus toms of each country. A grand mem- -orial buildings will also be erected at ' the expense of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia. .This building will be -. fire proof, and will contain all that is valuabe in the records of our nations. It will be surrounded by statues of ' the great mea of the early days of our country's trials, and will for all , time be a place of . visit for every , American citizen. J To carry out all the plans necessary to secure a per- J " feet m xev "the people will furnish' th? means, aad to give a proper op- pdrtcuity, certificates of stock arc now oiTered at $10 per share. These shares can be secured. by. the. pay ment of $2 down, and the balance in. quarterly payments. . No better gift can be made to our wives and chil dren than a share of Centennial stock. It will be handsomely engraved and made of . such a size that it caa be . framed and hung up. . . Rules for the Care of Canary Birds. 1. During the 'summer season you should have both drinking enp -and a bathing dish in the cage, and ... should wash them well twice a day and fill with fresh water. .The seed . , cup should be filled every morning. ' ' 2. Ihe room in which the bird is kept should never wanner thaa CO degrees. ' 3. , Feed plain food. Now and then a lump of sugar does no harm, hut as a general rale avoid sweets. Keep the cuttlefish dry and clean, ' and feed fresh and dry seed. : 4. Never place the' cage where a . draft can strike the bird. 5. Never smoke, or let any one smoke in a room where your bird is kept, as the odor of a cigar is fatal to canaries, ' - ; 6. As a general rule, never keep the bird in painted cage, for the bird t . will pock at the wires, aad it will lead to disease. ,;-..; - 7. When your bird: is shedding feathers, which is generally styled moulting, avoid drafts of air. . By obeying these simple direc- " tions you can keep your birds in ex cellent health for years.
