Wh»n you meet with one suspected Of nom« secret deed of shame, And for this by all rejected As » thlngof evil fame. Guard thine everv look and action, Speak no word ofheartless blame, For the slanderer's rile detraction Vet may soil thy goodly name. When you meet with one pursuing Ways the lost have wandered in, Workingottt his own undoing. With his recklessness and sin, Think, If placed in his condition. Would a kind word be in vain ? Or a look of cold suspicion Win thee back to truth again ? There are spot" that, bear no flowers, Not because the «oil is bad, But the Summer's genial showers Never mak« their bosoms glad, Better have an act that's kindly Treated sometimes with disdain, Than by judging others blindly, Doom the iunocent to paia. A Remuious Sensation in Eng land .—A sensation in the religious world—the consecration of the Ro man Catholic Cardinal, as Arch bishop of Westminster, (Cardinal Wiseman's successor)—elicits vari ous comments from the London jour nals.' The Morning Post (a Gov ernment organ) thinks : That any one should be consecra ted at all to such a See is significant of an amount of toleration and for bearance such as Roman Catholics enjoy nowhere else in the world. ' There is not a country in Europe, Romish or Protestant, where the Pope would be suffered to nominate an archbishop without the consent «f the Government. In France or Spain it would not be tolerated. In America, where there is 110 law to the contrary, a bishop or archbishop may hold a See, call himself after its fitle, and exercise his liberty as he pleases. 13ut even American tolera tion does not permit breaches of the law. English forbearance goes far beyond American, for it suffers its own Ecclesiastical Titles Act to be virtually broken with great pomp and ceremony, and makes no sign of concern and displeasure. The con secration of Dr. Manning was mor ally a violation of that Act, and ex pressed the contempt which Roman ists of the modern school have for the laws of the land when they interfere in any way with the progress of the Roman Church. • # # # m The appointment of an Archbishop of Westminster is an aggression, lie is altogether uunecessary to the fair «iiijoyment by Roman Catholics of the utmost stretch of religious lib erty,- but lie is necessary to the scheme of aggression and conversion by which the Roman Church hopes eventually to supersede and supplant the Church of England. Truly, the present generation of Romanists in England have fallen upon prosperous times. They build, they endow, they propagate their principles, and extend their agency to their heart's content, and no one says them nay. The late Archbishop Wiseman was by descent half Irish and half Spanish, and he was born a Roman Catholic. But Archbishop Manning is English born. He was once an English Churchman, a son of Ox ford, an archdeacon, a popular preacher, the head of a considerable following, the centre of a wide circle of admiring friends. His present position is, therefore, a greater tri umph to his Church than to himself. It was not a small thing to have won him at all. It is a far greater to have raised him to the highest posi tion which a Roman Catholic prelate can fill in England ; and that it should be so, is, indeed, significant of improved times for our Popish friends. There can be no doubt that the selection of Dr. Manning was de termined upon from the known zeal with which he had laid himself out to win over influential persons in tli« Established Church. He has always had' a long train of admiring ladies at his heels, and over them his influ ence is something remarkable. If the. history of many ladies of rank wiio have joined the Church of Rome within the last few years could be told, it would be seen that almost every one of them has been more or l«ss under the winning pastorate of Dr. Manning. Thr Fatk of Aaron Burr .—The case of Aaron Burr is a significant example in American history of the wisdom of a lenient policy. If ever there was a man dangerous from his talents, ambition and capacities of intrigue, it was Aaron Burr. But a free country, in ite> conscious strength, could afford to be humane even to Aaron Burr; and he went into an obscurity as profound as that of the grave—a living death, more terrible to a man of his spirit than the hor rors of the scaffold. His name, which might have been dignified by the in fliction of the extreme penalty of the law, could not survive the solitary life, cut off from all human sympa thies, «to which he was consigned, and which was finished by a death " unwept, unhouored and unsung." S avings of N wolbon F irst.— To a general officer not eminently distinguished, who solicited from the Emperor a Marshal's baton, he said : " It is not I that make Marshals ; it is victories." On hearing the first gun at Fried land he exclaimed : " Soldiers ! it is an auspicious day. It is the anni versary of Marengo." To a troop of artillery, which had failed in their duty, he said : "This flag which you have basely deserted shall be placed in the Temple of Mars, covered with crape. Your corps is disbanded." He presented Moreau, on one oc casion with a magnificent pair of pis tols as a cadeau. "I intended," said he, "to have got the names of your victories engraved upon them, but there was not room for them." A sentinel who allowed Gen. Jou bert to enter Napoleon's tent without giving the password, was brought before him : " Go," said he, " the mau who forced the Tyrol may well force a sentinel." On catching the first sight of the Mamelukes, drawn up in order of battle on the banks of the Nile, in view of the Pyramids, Bonaparte riding before the ranks, cried : "Sol diers ! from the summits of yonder Pyramids, forty generations are watching you." " Forty generations look down upon you" is the other and.better version. The 4th Regiment of the line on one occasion lost its eagle. "What have you done with your eagle?" asked Napoleon. "A regiment that loses its eagle has lost all. Yes ; but I see two standards that you have taken. 'Tis wel' " continued lie with a smile, "you shall have another eagle." On the field of Austerlitz, a young Russian officer, taken prisoner, was brought before him. "Sire," said he, "let me be shot. I have suffered my guns to be taken." "Young man," was the reply, "be consoled Those who are conquered by my soldiers may still have titles to glory." J3P "I am a broken man," said a poor poet. " So I should think," was the reply, " for I have seen your pieces." OFFICIAI,.

The following order of the President of the United States in relation to transfer of abandoned lands, funds and property set apart for the use of Freedmen, to the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Aban doned Lands, is published for the infor mation and guidance of all concerned : Executive Mansion, "i Washington, D. C., June 12, 1865. / Whereas, By an act of Congress, ap proved March 8, 1865, there was estab lished in the War Department a Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands and to wbieh, in accordance with the said act of Congress, is committed the super vision and management of all abandoned lands, and the control of all subjects re lating to refugees; and freedmen from re bel States, or from any district of country within the territory embraced in the oper ations of' the army, under such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the head of the bureau and approved by the President; and whereas, it appears that the management of abandoned lands, and sub jects relating to refugees and freedmen, as aforesaid, have been, and still are, by or ders based on military exigencies, or leg islation based on previous statutes, partly in the hands of military officers disconnec ted with said bureau, and partly in charge of officers of the Treasury Department; it is therefore Ordered, That all officers of the Treasury Department, all military of ficers, and all others in the service of the United States, turn over to the authorized officers of said bureau all abandoned lands and property contemplated in said act of Congress, approved March 3, 1865, estab lishing the Bureau of Refugees, Freçdmen and Abandoned Lands, that may now be under ur within their control. They will also turn over to such offices all funds collected by tax or otherwise for the bene fit of refugees or freedmen, or accruing from abandoned lauds or property set apart for their use, aud will transfer to them all official records connected with the administration of affairs which pertain to said bureau. Anubew Johnson. By order of the Secretary of W&r. E. D. T ownsenu , Asst. Adjt. Gen. Ucficiii]itloii of Mutilated Bank Notes. The following important circular has been issued by the Treasury Department : Treasury Department, Office of the Comptroller of Washington The following suggestions are offered relative to the redemption of mutilated circulating notes of national banks, and their return to this office : First—The notes are to be redeemed by the banks by which they are respectively issued, and should not bo returned to this office in sums less than five hundred dol lars, or in even multiples of that amount. Second—Mutilated notes which have been torn or defaced will be received, when presented by the bank that issued them, provided all the fragments are returned and the engraving or signatures are not so far obliterated that it cannot be deter mined by what bank the notes were issued. Third—Fragments should be redeemed by banks in full when accompanied by an affidavit stating the case and manner of mutilation, and that the missing part of the note is totally destroyed. The good character of the affiant should also be fully vouched for by the ofliccr before whom the affidavit is taken. These affidavits must be forwarded to this office, with the fragments to which they relate, in order that the banks pre senting such parts of notes may obtain credit for the same. Exceptional cases may occur in which no affidavit can be obtained, and where no reasonable doubts can exist in regard to the entire destruction or irreparable dam age to missing portions of notes—as by fire, acids, etc.—where evidence of identity is ample by the signature of one or both officers, or title or locality of the bank, aud the denomination of the note—where the integrity of the bill-holder is unexcep tionable, and where no question could arise in regard to afraudulent or improper use of missing parts ; in such instances judicious discrimination must necessarily be exercised by the officers of the banks. It is, however, advised that such notes be received at their full face value, a per fect note given therefor, a record being preserved of the fact, to be sent to this of fice with the mutilated note when returned for redemption by the bank, in which case full credit will be allowed in this depart ment. Fourth—When no satisfaction can be obtained in regard to the missing parts, and a possibility exists that any improper use can be made of the same, it is recom mended that a proportionate value only be ment, i ' Currency, > a, D. C. j allowed, estimating this !>y comparison of the proportion returned to the missing parts. A record should be kept of the amount allowed in all snch instances, and a voucher of the same rendered to this of fice, when the mutilated note or notes shall be returned for redemption. F.
