HENRY GENIUS, Corner Front and Tradeau Sts.. Natehitoohes, La. ' Jan. 17, 871.--1y., ,,.-- We will give :m o ~: iBani - pieUn· ret an ~or o~ U~g~O*O~, S4i. fr~i'% Arnold and Andre. [Chicago Tribmvoal The John Carter Brown Library, in Providence, RH. I., contains a "His tory of the Origin. Progress and Ter nuination of the American War," by Stedman, an officer in the English ar my. This particular copy of the book [ once belonged to Sir Henry Clinton, who conducted the negotiations with Benedict Arnold, and sent out Major Andre to confer with the traitor. His comment on Stedman's account of the attempt to betray West P.oint into the hands of the British is:.' Igno rance of the whole' transaction-too tender a subject to explain upon now." By the time he finished fling the book, however, he seqems t )ive de cided to record what ad to him a fair statement of thecase. The fly leaves at the end of the second vol nine contain this curious record, which hasjust been published for the 'first time: Arnold opened negotiations with Clinton in 1780. He said that the al liance with France had disgusted him, and that he would, on this ac count, go over to the British, provi ded he was guaranteed personal se curity and idemnity for any loss of property he might sustain. Sir Henry was "liberal" in his promises. He got from Arnold, on several occasions, "most material intelligence," and finally, at the latter's request, sent Andre to meet him on neutral ground. At this time Clinton was still ancer Stain whether his correspondent was really Major.Geheral Arnold. Sev ' eral meetings were planned, but each one was prevented by some enexpect ed circumstance. Finally, on Arnold's suggestion, Andre visited West Point . under a flag of truce. He had been charged by Clinton "not to change dress or name on any account," and to carry no suspicious papers." If this thmn had been carried out, An dre would have i"curred no risk what. ever. But Arnold, either for some .unknown reason, or because he lost his presence of mind for the moment, persuaded or compelled iis visitor to disguise himself aiudnpass through the Amnerican hilies with only a passport l and his wits to protect him. Both resources failed. Arnold, when he heard of Andre's arrest, fled to New' York, and carried the news to Cliin ton. The latter was grieved, but supposed that his friend would soon be exchanged. He was horrified when "Mr. Washington's" Council of War condemned Andre to death. His having landed under a flag of truce, at the request of Arnold, and his having assumed a disguise and taken a false passport at the instance of the latter, are urged in his curious docu ment as reasons why hds,li+c should have been spared. This is not very conclusive reasoning, butbetter could not be expected from such a warm friend as Clinton. He enis his note by saying that his heart will "never cease to bleed" at the thought of Andre's fate. Much as we may de plore the untimely death af a gallant I gentleman, whose judges grieved over the sentence they hid to pro- I aounce, it can scarcely te semionsty 'denied that the use of a flag of truce, Iqder the circumstance o, nly ag- i gravated thie guilt of the qpy 'wiho was I caught with the written 1hoofs of his crime concealed upon is person. IHe was a good man, idd a brave man, and a smart maim, but another spy of ithe Americps irevolution was gleat r or than .e. Andre, hungfor his share in a plot to.corrupt a soldier, can not be compared with Iathsu Hale, a legitinitte spy, whose work had noth. I t uog vile about it, and who went to the scaffold regtresting that. he could give onlhyone life for is soultry. ----.w.---J--- The South and the bentennial Oath., IFrom the New Orleans Piasyune. The publicati6n of (3v. Smith's letter to Secretary Fish his led to the , production of Secretary ish's reply. It appears from the Secretary's state I ment that there were.two kinds of oaths provided-one for tie north and one' for the bouth-anu arrangement ' admirably adapted :to 'discrioinate Ibetween the aeutions, sad to keep alive the. memories of an elade I 'which the subnmission o ode side and I the magnanimity of theother shoald have combined to:disaiss forever. Secretary Fish's explanation is thatI some of his clerks in the horry of the moiment edolosed in the 'ommissmons litended for Veconsitrueuel Georgia Sthe bath inteondied for theloyal' Nortih. In oftleritagtant explastiona he ad- I pips that distinctions' aldibeen 'o-. i served snd that the 'itheiou States 1 were to have been receivedlun terms I iadjusted wtha tiew .to illustrating the distinction in asrnarkcd and con- j spicuons a mnapguera posible. It i evident tlit the drangenoents is uin-. , pPers. totard the Soeth and un true t6 tbhe ostensible spirit of 'the Centennil' eelebration; and, whmith or theb exorpcffed by the Seretary spran. fiom 'a: aftertlo ila t ol eal j ly r6iretsditea an existing ttite of - things, the fact remuains that the South must go to . tSe Ceuteanial with a Ssenseu oftbdimg disriminated agiinst aend the khowledge that this dicrinm . ination is pa'aded to the world. It maybetrue that the movers in I the centennial concern are talking of Heon; L. Q. ;C. Ladde and Gen. Joseph I E. Johnston aspromiueit aeors in ceremonies of thpday, but we doubt whether they or any other Southern genotleaen carb lrnalde 'to' res pect apd· sp~oPve an affair so per' Bverfted to pasani ends as this has ii en in tli"'anttter' of the earth reteibed leor Commuliasioer.. We testr~e t;ko mg, thamwkItitsthe m a efrestirJ id.*iiflta Wd Itiled inth~ote.p gr h~ide~l .rh'!i perioql of the war. No eracan oaut er the sense of gladness and relief with which they recognized the ap proach of a better mutual understand ing and a better mutual esteem. No " words can describe the heartfelt pleasure with which they look for ward to the Centennial anniversary as the fittest and most auspicious time to celebrate the advent of the new union while they commemorated the glories of the old. But the spirit that crops out in this oath-the spirit manifested, first in prescribing any special oath at all, and secondly in framing it with such open purpose to insult and humiliate the South-that spirit is no answer to fraternal im pulses awakening in the Southern =heart. Mr. Lamar may consent to speak there and General Johnston may be asked to serve among the dignitaries; but we doubt if all this will offset the bitter disappointment it has given us to find that there remains at the North the wish to keep alive the ani mosities of fourteen years ago and to taunt us with the defeat we have I borne so patiently and bravely. The occasion will seem more an illustra tion of sectional differences than a memorial reunion of brothers, and Louisiana will imitate Georgia in holding it in sorrow and avoidance. Shyster. Some time ago a lawyer of Chicago sued the editor of one of the dailies of that city for libel beeause said pa per had called him .a "shyster." Not long afterwards one of the leading dailies of St. Louis was sued for the same reason. These suits have natu rally created a great deal of curiosity as to the true meaning of the word "shyster." The standard dictiona ries are silent upon the subject; but not so the famous Josh Billings, who supplies the great need now felt by a carious public. His definition of "shyster" is as follows: The shyster is a loose cross between the Jeremy Didler and the ded-beat, and is more partikularly known as a cheap lawyer who hangs around the arenas of justiss, a pest tow all who know him, and a downright misfortin tew those who don't. He is always on hand tow help the unfortunate out or one disaster into a wuss,one, and I don't hesitate tew take the last shil- I ling ennybody has got as pay for ser vices that he knows he kant render. I He is a vehement liar and prating cheat; all decent lawyers despise I him, and a judge dreds him as he dun a drove ov hungry dies in a hot I and fetid court-room. A shyster is a kind of yell. dog amtaug iumans, sneaking around the I korners for a bone. He knose just I enuuffabout law tow git a man into 1 its meshes, but never enuff tow git him out, and never got a fee yet that I hadn't the smell of hishonor in it. He never gits ltbuv a shabby gen. tility in his appearance, and would l make a very good walking advertise- I ment to parade in front or a second- I hand clothing cousarn. The shyster is always as poor as I he is dishonest, and when he gits old ari. fairly gone to seed, it takes all the kunning lie is master ov tow git his klam soup and his ockashuiual luxury or cheap whisky. Josh says I know several of this infamous breed of kritters; I kan kall up tow ni vishun at enny time tlheir shiny black suits, their nnlighted stuonps of cigars,, their koil glassy ey'es, their pinched cheeks, and their general hungryness. If i was in a tite spot, and must have help i had match rather meet a highwayman than one of theeo wretches. Highwaymen are often generous1 have been known tow be teender, sel dam are mean, but a shyster is cer tainly the moast bitter ov all.blister. A tree definition of what it takes to make a slyster.

Mr. Kelly was a strange char- I acter. He was a man ofconsiderable cultinre for one whose youth extended I back into tihe pioneer period of the country, and at that early day was actively engaged as a schlool-teacher. 1 lior many years he had lived the life of a hermit, occupying a honse en-I tirely alone, cooking his own victuals, I making his own clothing and practi cally demonstrating, as far as he was 1 able, that womamkmnd is a superfluity. He was best known through his re. I gion as a dentist, and, unlike the I generality of Ihiscraft ulways carried his office with him, and operated I upon Ihis patients at their homes.

The ecowd oined inwith a will, and had sung m o the ead of the second line, 'Ten lif thbusand fees rise,'", when a shrill Sfemale voice was heard, "Hold n ! o ye ve started it to high !"

I notice some inquitice in the Plan tation of the Chufas, its habits, cni ture, etc. Some twenty years ago i received five seed from the Pater=: Office, and have planted them ever since. They are a "grass nut," bma not a "nut grass." The nut grows tt, the size of a small goober, and I have frequently made a quart from a sin gle nut. I have never tried them oa very rich land, and do not know' how great a yield might be got frot themt ; but it would be enormous. On land that will make twenty bushels o" corn, one haudred bushels of ebhfas can be ra'ised easily, and one bushel of chufas is worth two of corn, as I ! will demonstrate. The clhtfas de light in a light sandy soil, but will grow in any soil. They may be planted any time from December to April, as they never rot in the groaun or are injured by cold or frost. I am now planting fire acres in theor (:(March 8). I plowed the land smooth. and laid open shallow furrows two feet apart, and in this furrow drop a single seed twelve inches apart, and cover with a board. The seed will vegetate the first warm weather, and soon show a green line along the row. As soon as the grass and weeds be gin to grow, run a sweep between the tows, the green spires begin to multi ply, and will eventually meet across the rows, each spire having a nut at the bottom in the ground. The nuts do not grow more thian two inches is tihe ground, and the hogs fatten on them in the winter when all other crops are in the jut or barn. This is a great advantage overall other crops -no digging or storing. Poultry are very fond of thema, and soon learn to scratch for them, and as they grow so near the surface, find no diffiaculty in getting them. It is said the pecu liar flavor of the canvas back duck, of the Chesapeake, is derived from the wild qelery they feed upon, but epicures can have no conception of delicious game or poultry unless they have eaten chickens fattened on chu. fan. The Spaniards express Oe juieo from the chutfas, which they cal, Or. gent; when clarified it is whte. like nilk, and is much used in flavoring brandies and wines--distilled, it makes a strong almond flavored bran dy. I have parched and ground them, and find them superior to choealate as a breakfast drink. When we take into consideration all good qualities, its fattening properties, its -easy cul ture, its handiness, and the fact that hogs will dig tlem as they want them without wasting them-it is the most " valuable seed the Patent Office has ever sent out, and is destined to prove a great boon to the South.-Cor. Plantation. (Blt we would caution our readeiS not to allow the cocoa grass not to be palmed off upon thetm for chuaf nuts.
