President Johnson and Senator
Sumner .—A cotempotary gives the
following repart of a conversation
which recently took place between
the President and Senator Sum
"Good evening, Mr. President,"
said Senator Sumner, last week,
upon entering the President's room
in the White House.
"Good evening, Mr. Senator,'' re
plied the President. "Please bo
seated for h moment, until I finish
a letter to an old friend."
The letter being finished, the
President turned to Mr. Sumner,
when the latter said :
"Mr. President, I called upon
you for the purpose of expressing
to you the view« of our people on
the subject of reconstruction."
'Well, sir," replied the Prési
Mr. Sumner, commenced by say
ing : "Sir, your North Carolina
Proclamation does uot meet the ap
probation of our people, and they
will not submit to have the great
results of the war thus thrown
"What people are you represent
ing, Sir?" asked the President.
"The whole Northern people,"
said Mr. Sumner.
"I apprehend you will find, you
but represent a small portion of the
Northern people,"replied Mr. John
■'Then," said Mr. Sumner, "we
must take your North Carolina pro
clamation as an indication of your
policy, are we?"
"Yes, sir," replied the President.
"Then, sir," said Sumner, "you
do not intend to enfranchise the
black man V
"I have nothing to do with the
subject ; that exclusively belongs
to the States. Yt.u certainly would
think it an usurpation on my part
if I attempted to interfere in fixing
the qualifications of electors iu
"But," replied Sumner, "Massa
' chu setts has always been a loyal
"That may be," replied the Presi
dent, "but the loyal men of the
" South have made untold sacrifices
for their IJniou sentiments, whil«
Massachusetts has made hundreds
of millions out of her loyalty, and it
would be a poor return for Southern
adherence to the Government, if the
latter should, in violation ot the
Constitution, thrust upon them
local laws in opposition to their
At this reply of the President,
Mr. Sumner, became impatient and
irritable, and rejoined by saying,
"1 am sorry to see you evincing so
little sympathy with that element
that placed you in power."
At this, the color Hashed to the
President's face, and he added, em
phatically: "You and 1 might as
well understand each other now as
any other time. You are aware sir,
1 have uo respect for a secessionist;
but, as much as I despise them, I
still have a greater detestation and
contempt for a fanatic."
"Good evening," said Sumner,
and left in a hulf.
« » -—
An Argument in Favor of Matiu*
mosy .—We never remember to have
Seen the field canvassed from the
point of view here chosen. We
present it for the sage consideration
of our fair readers :
No one will contend that there
are no crimes committed by mar
ried men, Facts would look such
an assertion out of couuteuanee.—
Put it may be said with truth, that
there are very few crimes commit
ted by married men compared with
the number committed by those who
are unmarried. Whatever faults
Voltaire, may have had, he certainly
showed himself a man of sense
when he said : "The more mauried
men you have the fewer crimes there
will be. Marriage renders a man
more virtuous and more wise."-—
An uumarried man is but half of a
perfect being, and it requires the
other half to make things right ;
and it cannot be expected that in
this imperfect slate he can keep
the straight path of rectitude any
more than a boat with one oar, or a
bird with one wing - can keep a
straight course. In nine causes out
of ten, where married men become
drunkards, or where they commit
crimes against the peace of the
community, the foundation of these
acts was laid while in a single
state, or where the wife is, as some
times the case, an unsuitable match.
Marriage changes the whole cur
rent of a man's feelings, and gives
him a centre for his thoughts, his
affections and his acts. Here is a
home for the entire man, and the
counsel, the affections, the example
and the interests of his ''better
half" keep him from erratic courses,
and from falling into'a thousand
temptations to which he would oth
erwise; be exposed. Therefore, the
friend to marriage is the friend to
society and to his country. And
we have no doubt but a similar ef
fect is produced by'marriage on the
woman ; though from the differ
ence in their labors and the greater
exposure to temptation on the part
of the men, we have no doubt but
man reaps a greater advantage
from the restraining influences of
marriage than woman does. But as
our Heavenly Father said at a very
early period in the existence of hu
man beings : "It is not good for
either to be alone.
writing .—Consider the materials
of writing. The first was stone.
Shells, plates of various materials,
ivory, bark, and leaves oi trees, have
been some of the early substitutes
for paper. Hesiod's works were
written on leadeu tables. Montlaucon
speaks of a book with eight leaden
leaves. The laws of the Cretans
were on bronze tables. The Romans
put their public records upon brass.
Copper plates have been dug up near
Bengal, dated a century before the
birth of Christ. Sometimes songs
have been found on strips of leather.
The Arabs took the shoulder-bones
of sheep, and carved remarkable
events upon them, and then hung!
them up ill their rabiiu'is. . in a Ii- 1
brary of Europe, there is a letter j
upon a piece of bark about t wo yards
long. In others are copies' of the
Bible written upon palm leaves. The
skins of animals anrl serpents were
also used. Wax was also used in
different forms, sometimes of itself
and sometimes on wooden tablets.
The Egyptian papyrus superseded
all former materials. This grew in
large quantities on the banks of the
Nile. After the eighth century, the
papyrus was superseded by parch
ment. Paper from cotton was made
as early as the ninth century ; from
linen in the thirteenth. The first !
paper-mill in England was erected j
by a German in 1Ô8S. Thomas [
Watkius brought the art of paper- j
making to perfection in 1715. The j
pens used in the translation of the
Bible were iron styles. The Romans
used ivory for writing. It was not
before the seventh century that quills
were used. We possess no ink in
beauty and color equal to that used
by the ancients. The manuscripts
written from the fifth to the twelfth
century are iri a better state of
preservation than those from the
fifteenth to the seventeenth century.

General Order* No. 84.
The following order of the President of
the United Stales in relation to transfer of
abandoned lands, funds und property set
apart for the use of Freednteu, to the
Bureau ot I'efugees, Freedmen and Aban
doned Land«, is published for the infor
mation and guidance of all concerned :
F.xKCimvr. Mansion, \
Washington, D. C., June 12, 1865. /
Whereat, IJy an act of Congress, ap
proved March S, 1865, there was estab
lished in the War Department a Dureauof
Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands
and to whieh, 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 tu refugees; and freoduaeu from re
bel States, or from any district of country
within the territory embraced in the oper
ations of tire army, under such rules and
regulations as may bo prescribed by the
head of the bureau nnd approved by the
President; and whereas, it appears that the
management of abandoned lands, and sub
jects relating to retugees 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 banda 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, aud all others iu the service of the
United States, tum over to the authorized
officers of said bureau all abandoned lands
and property contemplated iu said act of
Congress, approved March 3, 1865, estab
lishing the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen
and Abandoned Lauds, that may now bo
under or 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.

Uedem pt ton of Mutilated Hunk Notes.
The following important circular has
been issued by the Treasury Department :
Treasury Department, )
Office of the Comptt öfter, of Currency, V
Washiugton, I). C. j
The following suggestions are offered
relative .to the redemption of mutilated
circulating notes of national batiks, 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 be returned to this
office in sums less than five hundred dol
lars, or iu eveu multiples of that amount.
Second—Mutilated notes which have
beeu torn or defaced will be received, when
presented by the bauk that issued them,
provided all the fragments are returned
aud the engraving or signatures are not
so far obliterated that it cannot be deter
mined by what bank the uotes were issued.
Third—Fragments should be redeemed
by banks in full when accompanied by an
affidavit staging 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 officer before whom the
affidavit is taken.
These affidavits must be forwarded to
Ulis office, with the fragments to which
they relate, in order that the banks pre
senting such parts of notes may obtain
crédit for the saine.
Exceptional eases may occur in which
ua affidavit can be obtained, and where uo
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 conid
:i rise in regard to a fraudulent 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
Fourth—When uo satisfaction c&n 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
allowed, estimating this by comparison of
the propoition returned to the missing
parts. A record should be kept of the
amount allowed in all such instances, and
a voucher of the same reudered to this of
fice, when the mutilated note or notes shall
be returned for redemption.
