A correspondent asks : "What do you think of Games of Skill, as Chets, Draught, or Checkers f Not under standing such games, our opinion may be of little worth ; but we think that human life is too short, its true work too large, and its real object too momentous, to be frittered away with such tom-foo'.eries. So much for the moral of the subject. As to the mental effects of such employments, they certainly promote habits of delibera tion and tboughtfulness, and very impor tant ebaracteristics are they, in this hurry skurry, helter-skelter, neck-or-notbing age. iiul far higher purposes would bo attained by an equal time spent in the demonstra tion of some of tbe problems of Euclid, because they compel the mind to atten tion, to tboughtfulness, and habits of le gitimate deductions, tbe want of which is one of the most radical defects of modern education, and one of the most couslant causes of making life a failure. As to the physical tendency of spending hours together bending over the table,with that insufficient and imperfect breathing which attends an interested mind, any one's common sense will give the answer, that such pastimes are full of mischief, are worse than useless.

G, 1859 Speech of Hon. John C. Kunkel. We copy from the Washington (!M the remarks reeently made in the House of Representatives by lion. John C. Kun kel, under the five minute rule, id the de bate on tbs bill granting pensioi.s tj tbe soldiers of the war of 1812. It will b seen that Mr. Kunkel takes strong ground in favor of the measure, and advocates it with characteristic zeal and ability :..Tel Mr. Kunkel, of Pennsylvania. I move to increase the amount one dollar. I move tbe amendment merely to give me opportunity to express my views iu tbe five minutes allowed ma upon upon this bill. I am not content that the debate in favor of tbe bill shall be sustained entirely by Keutucky aud Tennessee, l'ennsylvauia always has an arm for tbe battle, aud a voico for tbe soldier. The gentleman from Tennessee (Mr. Avery) characterized that State as the Voluuteur State. Sir, I dispute that title with him. I claim that honor for Pennsylvania. She is emphati cally the volunteer-soldier State of this I'nion. More than once has she tnudered more gallant soldiers to tbe Govern ment than would meet its requirements, and never has she turned her back upon the country's chieftains, or been unmind ful of their services. The military ardor of her people ban enstamped upon her several peculiarities. There are some three thiugs whioh no public man in Pennsylvania can do and live ; he can not vote against supplies to the Army when actually engaged in war with a foreign Power ; he can not vote against any fair and honorable acquisition of territory by the Government ; and, above all, he can not vote against that expression of the na lion's gratitude to its war-worn soldiers which is manifested by grants of peusions. Ou these subjects, my State has fixed seutimeuts aud opinions, and I aui most happy that my own agree entirely with he- i have no doubt of tbe justice of the principle of this bill, and none of the ex pediency of its passage even in the pres ent condition of tbe Treasury. With all respect to tbe gentleman from Alabama, (Mr. Curry,) and the geu lleman from Maryland, (Mr. Davis,) who have distinguished themselves in opposi tion to the bill, 1 have yet to bear the first valid argument against it. Tbe ar- gument of the gentleman trom .Maryland, (Mr. Davis,) has been and the same ar- i gument has been urged by others that, : inasmuch as it is the duty of tbe citizen to dclena his country wnea ctuta upon, the principle of compensation upon which all pension laws proceed, is wrung ; that the soldier is only discharging the duty of a citizen, and is, therefore, not entitled to be paid. Tbe duty is acknowledged and granted. It is a duty ; but it is tbe duty of all the citiz-jns alike. All, however, are not needed, aud all ran not sharo in ccssarily be discharged by a few of them. 11,11 fw mu8t eucouuter tho hardships, - privations, ana uangers oi tne camp, wuue the great body of the people pursue their i peaceful avocations at home. Tbe victo- rious peace which is won by the sacrifices and lives of the few, inures to the com mon benefit. Thus, those who remain at home in tinio of war, become debtors to the soldiers ; the generation wbieh pros pers in peace, to tbe generation that con quered tbe peace. Civil and military ser vices are upon the same footiug, and if tbe soldier is to be cuntcnl with tbe con sciousness of discharging a duty to his country, why should not the civilian ? I cau, indeed, imagine a Republic iu which all functionaries discharge their trusts from considerations of sheer patriotism and du ty ; tbe President, bib Secretaries and sub ordinates, the Legislature, Senate, and House, all discharging their several func tions without compensation, and only un der the inspiration of patriotic duty. In such a Government, you might say to tbe soldier he did only his duty. Hut such a Government is only imagination ; oertaiu ly it is not ours. But the argument used with most force against the bill, is based upon the exigen cies of the Treasury. It is said that this will involve au annual expenditure of tan or twelve million dollars. That is tlu es timate of the Commissioners of Peusions. My friend from Iowa, next me, (Mr. Cur tis,) who, from his labor and research, seems well qualifiod to judge, assures us the amount will not exceed (3,000,000. Doubtless the passage of this bill will re quire a large annual appropriation. lie it so. If economy is to bo exercised in this Government, let it begin somewhere else. Why, sir, bow shall we answer to these scarred and war-worn veterans ? Shall we say to them, " V.'e believe your elaim a just and honest one, and we would cheer fully vote yon something out of tbe na tional Treasury, but tbe Treasury is bank rupt, and we are not able to do it V Sir, would tbey not point out our immense grauts of land in the western Territories to Kailroad corporations ; tbe millions annually expended upon Fortifications; tbe millions wasted upon these Edifices, &o. ; and put us to shame ?

They can all be prepared at a very small ex pense. Take a quart of common olive oil, and heat it in a stoneware vessel, up to 212 degrees, then aid half an ouuee of sal-soda, and stir all for fifteen minutes. Allow tbe oil to cool, and a sediment will fall to tho bottom ; pour off the clear oil, and seeut it with any of tho essential oils, such as rosemary, bergamut, and lavender. One fourth of an ounce of essential oil will scent a quart of tbo prepared oil, which is very excellent for the bair, and equal to Rowland's celebrated Massacar oil, sold at such cxtravagint prices.

Dr. Murray, tf Elizabethtowo, writes thus of bis hrt visit to the Fulton Street prajer meeting : "As I glanced up .n the b'gh briik st 'res in Ann Sir. e, tbe n.eniories of ; '" ' rtherdavs rushed upon me. WLerelhoso . , .- bru-k stores unwrise.npwaidsof thirty ytar . . , ! ai! there stood souia wooden baiMings ot t I vcrv low y i rcten.-ious. In an upt er room J , of oue of them there dwelt an cid colored ,j 1 woman, th. n widely kuown ss Aunt lietsey, or Sarah which, I now forget.

It was that of one who is now one of the princely merchants of New York, but, in bis youth, be was one of the ! young men who met for prayer in the room j of Aunt Betsey, and bis wife was one cf the little girls, who as the ravens did to j Elijah, carried to her daily food !...One of them rote to emineoceae an accomplished writer and editor, and for years has served bis country, and the cause of Protestant ism, with distinction as a Minister at f. reign court. ..Another of them is an Ex Mayor of the City of New York, whose band has never been withheld from any work of religion or philanthropy.. .Anoth er is the honored partner of one of the largest publishing houses of tbe city of bis residence.. .Another of them has risen to eminence as a merchant, and is a pillar in one of the most imp rtant congregations in tbe British Isles... Another is also a well known merchant of New York who bas a heart for every good work. ..Another it a useful minister in the Western States, whose labors have been eminently blessed in turning many to righteousness... I was myself among tbe youngest of the compa ny, and when I was first invited to join tbe circle in the room of Aunt Betsey, was not a communicant of the Church." These statements were made in the prayer meeting, au 1 after Dr. Murray had sat down, a man rose in another part of the room, his tremulous accents showing the feelings that were within him. " I have," said be, " recently visited the pris- I ou at Sing iog. As I went from eil to ' cell, I met with an old man, who told me j a very different story from that just narra ' ttd. lie said that, wbeu young, be was one of a company who formed an infidel club, and who met once a week for talking iufidehty, gambling.and drinking, not very far from the upper room of Aunt Betsey. Aod I was shocked as he toll me of the end to which bis companions came. 'Oue,' said he, 'died by bis own band; another by the band of violence ; some in tbe State Prison ; some of delirium trem- .; and, as far as I know, I am tbe only I one of them surviving; and here am I, in : the garb, and daily at the work, of a felon."
