'Why do you wish to see him V I've brought him a present, all the way from Amcriky. I respect him considerable, and I want to get at him, to give it to him with my own hands.' Mr. Dalhis smiled, as he answered, It is sueli a common thing, my lad, to make cro vn cd heads a present, expecting something hand some in return, that I am afraid the emperor will consider this only a Yuukec trick. What have you brought !' 'An acorn.' 'An acorn I what tinder the sun induces you to bring the emperor of Russia an neom !' Why, jest before I sailed, mother and I went on to Washington to see about a pension; and when we was there, we thought we'd jest stjp over to Mount Vernon. I picked up this neom there; audi thought to myself, I'd bring it to tho emperor. Thinks says I, he imibt have heard coMilerablo deal about Gen eral Washington, and I expect he must admire our institutions. So now. vou see. I've brou"ht - o it, and I want to get at hint. 'My lad, it is not an easy matter fiira strang er to approach the emperor ; and I am afraid he will take no notice of your present. You had better keep it. 'I tell you I want to have a talk with him. I expect I can tell him a thing or two about Amerilty. I guess he'd like mighty well lo hear about our rail-roads and our free schools, and what a big swell our steamer cut. And when lie hears how well our people are get ting on, may be it will put hiin to doing some thing. The long and the short on't is, I shunt be easy until I get a talk w ith the emperor ; and I should like to see his wife and children. 1 want to see how such folks bring up a fami ly.' 'Well sir, since you are so determined upon it, I will do what I can fur yo'i ; but you must expect to be disapHiinted. Though it will be rather an unusual pricecding, I would ad vise you to call on the vice-chancelh.r, and state your wi.-hes ; he may possibly assist you.' 'Hell, that's all 1 want of you. I will call Hi:ain, and let you know how lot on.' In two or three days, he again appenred, and said. 'H ell I've seen tho emperor, and had a talk with him. He's a real gentleiiiun, I can tell you. H'licu I give- him the acorn, he said he should set a great store by it ; that there was no character in ancient or modern history he admired so much as he did our H';ishington ; lie said he'd plant it in his palace garden witii his own hand ; and he did it for I see him with my own eyes. He wanted to osk me so much about our schools and rail ro'ids, and one thing or another, that he inviti-d me to come again, and see his daughters ; for he said his wife could speak better Unolish than he could, So I went a gttin, yesterday ; and the' a fine, knowing woman, 1 tell you ; and liu daughters ate nice gaU' ll'lint did the empress say to you V ( Hi, she asked me a sijrhl o' questions, Don't )ou think, she thought wh had no servants in Ameriky I told her poor folks did their own work, hut rich folks h"'l plenty of servants 'Hut then, you don't call 'em servants !' rotd she ; 'you caH 'em help.'

And we are going to-morrow morning, Mr. Dallas. llliat do you think now ! And sure enough, the next morning the Yankee boy passed the ambassador's house in a splendid coach and four, waving his haudker- cluef.and slioutuig 'good bye ! good bve !'

Having recently discovered that my ancesttal name is" W'altmirc, to obviate all suspicion of having changed mv name through design, I submit the fol lowing brief narrative, accompanied with the statement of my brother. 1 was born in Switzerland, in the Canton of Argau, and left that country about the year 1810, migrating with my father's family, which consisted of father, mother, and sven children all sons. We arrived at Amsterdam, in Holland, at which we purposed to take shipping for Norh America. We were there detained awhile by llie difficulty of procuring shipping." The vessel in which we eventually secured a passage was so much crow' Jed with cmierant passengers, that previous to our suiting ! .. .. . . sail, a most dislruc.tivc pestilence broke out among the crew, to which llie grea ter portion of the passengers fell vic tims. Among the dead were my fa ther, mother, and three brothers ' nlso. an uncle and his whole family, who had travelled with us to that place. Thus four brothers of us, all in our childhood, left to pursue our journey under those unhappy circumstances, to a strange land, without a friend to direct or com fort us. After a tedious and distressing pas sage, we landed at Newcastle in the ,ta,c J -'laware. e then became SOp' n,,C(l' a,ltl Pl" '" "niong strangers, Xvl,0l! ,anCn.ce we could neither speak ""r understand, and had no knowledge 'I each other's place of residence.

As it regards myself, the first years of my residence in the United States were spent in tho lower part of Penn sylvania. From thence 1 went to Fred erick City, Maryland, where 1 learned the ftkin dressing and glove business. After remaing in Frederick about five years, went to I lagerstown, in the same Slate, where I exercised my trade of skindrcssing and gloving for about four years. While residing in Ha- I gcrstown I married Miss Christiana ! Criirlow, of Fi ederick. From HagiMstown 1 removed to the ; Stale of Ohio, liv inn six months in Day j ton. 1 went from thence to Columbus, i where I remained three years, during which time I studied Divinity under Professor Schmidt, of the Cerinan Se miliary.

I 1 tb-s manner, the name of mv uncle, who, with his whole family, died on board the vessel, as above stated, and who was my mother's brother, was R.iof. Those w ho took me and my brother John into their keeping, on our arrival in the country, may have seen that name on the ship's register of pa pcrs, and may have taken us to be" sur viving members of that family. Our extreme youth, and ignorance of the language, prevented ns from putting them right; My brother, who is. now hero, was older, and of sufficic.it age to preserve his fume. I aho team from him that lie has discoved and identified our youngest bro'.'ier.

I, Joseph Walimire, of lawful aj;e, of the county of Perry, Ohio, do certify and say that the foregoing statement of Joseph A. Roof, so far as it relates to the circumstances of our emigration to this country, the loss of our parent and other friends on the passage, and our separation on our landing, and our true name, is within my knowledge and re collection, and is substantially true. I further certify that I never obtained any certain know ledge oHum from the time of our said separation, until our nice ting on last Sabbath. Our recollection of certain incidents of our childhood, leaves no doubt on my mind that we are brothers. It nntrht seem a little ex traordinary that we both have the name of Joseph. My name was simply Jo seph. My brother was named Joseph Anthony, in memory of a cousin of that name, w ho was killed in Bonaparte'sar mv, and was called Anthony in our fam ily. JOSEPH WALTMIRE.

It will be remembered by almost ev ery one, that our blundering Fund Commissioners, some two years or more since, sold to Mr. J. Delafield, of New York, about five hundred thou sand dollars of Slate bonds on credit, and without security. Delafield failed to perform his contract, and Doctor Barret, who was appointed Fund Com- missioner in the winter ot lyj'J 10, proceeded to New York, lo sec to the interests of the State there, and, if pos sible, secure the Delafield debt.

The busi ness was then in a fair way for beinir adjusted. Dc'alield was in a situation to be compe'lotl to disclose the amount for which I. e sold the State bonds, if be had sold Uiem, to whom be sold them, and l.cre the renmitiing bonds were, if any remained unsold, specifying the number of the bonds in all cases. This was driving up Mr. Delafield into closer quarters than was pleasant. At this stage of the game, Dr. Barret was removed from ollice by the ap Kintmcnt of Mr. Whiteside as the mic cessor. Delafield, by arrangement w ith M r. Whiteside, had the injunction dis missed, the contract,) about which the Register boasted, was made, and the end of the chapter is, that Delafield has assigned his property for the benefit of his creditors. t.IaeiuL' Illinois in the third class, which means our State, we am.re- nend, will get nothing but some few shares in thc'Quiney House,' in w hich she can set up keeping tavern.
