Then she replied, si she reach ed back the note I thank you for vnur generous kindness ; but he left hie honor in ay keeping, and I must maintain it spotless.

Once appointed, the candidate must run the gauntlet of the Senate, and if he hai boned so lor, at tbe other end of the avenue as to bare attracted attention, tometimes in a suJden bUTSt of indignation the Senate rejects him, particularly if he is found in the way cf sorce Senator's articular friend. In the whole matter, from first to last, the unrttion of fitness is one seldom asked. The President eltber appoints those, or for those who Hatter him ; those who fought nith him through last summer's campaign ; those trbo ran for office against IlepuUieans, and were uescaieii; inoae wao nave denounced impeach meat; those who. though llajicals. and obliged and were always undermining the Union party in private; those who swung around the circle; those who attempted to corrupt the army thess are tke classes from whicb, or for which, Mr Johnsoc selects when left to himself. If good, sound Union men are appointed, it is on some personal ground, because some conserva tive eoppotter asks it as a favor, or because none other eaa be confirmed: or it mar N the w iiuauj "1U1 limn, JC. IHIV1C IO Uti-IJ, result ot a bargain. TOE CIKIIMXISC. Ol nil tbe discrraeeful ottsratkmi humiiI with this Administration, this deliberate trad tog with Andrew Jehnaon for office is beyond all qaestion tbe moat eontmptmle. Instead of toe i nton members of the Senate, who can ceo Ira! the whole metier, saying (Wiherateiy to tbe President by their votes "you shall send good men her. or yonr offices shall remain untiled," many Senators and Representatives have enter ed into a regular agreement, that in ease they receive a certain share of the appointments, they will see (bat those the 1 "resident selects from bis friends, are cooflrmed. And this has been carried to each an extreme that in one dis trict, a man known to be a gambler, and other wise corrupt, and one note mm for tbe perni cloui influence he had exerted upon bis neigh borhood, was deliberately ron firmed through the indoence of a cert am &aator who had agreed that the thing shonM he done if a party friend received a certain other office in the sime district. And this is a key to what at gaiag on in tbe United States Senate chamber: in the de partments to which reference has been made, I and at tbe While lianas, I The cosntry has wondered Uw the confirma tion of certain men, who have gone to all the lengths which unadattersted Johnsonism re. inires, has been brought abont. and the answer !.. . I . . i m the above ; and many Senators who , ijcim mx ms nccp Ui iDe mire aa any ; yes, deeper, because tbeir conetitnente hate a right to expect better things of them. MaMSChaseus is an example of what Senators eaa do in tab matter. Keltber Mr. Sumner nor Mr Wifsoo have been near the President, tbey have endorsed each recommendations as tbey cheese, in a business way, and as the appoint ments came in tbey have rejected objectionable ItaBoerats and Johnson men as fast as sent in. until tbe result proves that nearly every office in tbe State is filled by Republicans Mr. Wade has nerer asked Johnson tor an office, and hat not a single man in office anywhere. !wt it is nseless te go over tke roll of States to show bow these things are managed. The connr ma lions already hefcre the country indicate most eleairy that no rules regulate tbe Senate in its aotioo, but that it depends in a large de gree upon personal considerations alone. Anil for this action, sooner or later, the UepuUieaa party will call its leaders to account ; or, failing to do so. and that entlorsina them, will torelv I be dctrojed tbrooch its own corruption. Thl Ri-.-u Trmtv is Knouum.. It eecms that all lartics in England do not agree with the London Wmrs in looking upon cur purchase of the IEueeian Possession;! with calm indifference. The Indon Mum ing Post, the Tory organ, regards the tran saction as boding ill to the British rule in North America. It adds: " There can be no mistake about this last move of the Yankees. Russian America might hate brought a better price if offered to our selves, wbo, as neatest neighbors, hid the first right to a hid. The transaction is one full of direct btstility, and the intention is to obvious that it cannot be ignored. It is the answer from Washington to the Confederation of our North American Province;. It it more than an answer it ie a challenge." IiiNTftKV. There arc now three full State tickets in nomination in Kentucky. Tho Republican ticket is beaded by Sidney M. Barnes, the Union Democratic ticket by Andrew Harding, and the Rebel Democratic ticket by John I.. Helm. The speeches ol the men who coinpxcd the recent Union Democratic Convention disclaimed all con nection and sympathy with such Northern Democrats as Yallandighcm, and character ized the returned rebels in Kentucky as more malignant now than when they were in arms against tlie Federal Government. It is to be legrcttcd that the opponents of rebel influences in Kentucky cannot unite this year upon .1 common platform. Thus united they would easily outvote those who hae bad the hardihood to form a State ticket almost exclusively of men who fought in the lelcl armies. The Dbenkex Sexators. Tho N. Y. Eve ning Gautte, in a despatch Trom Washing ton, toys that "Mrs. Sauls-bury appealed personally to Senators not to pro& the reso lution expelling her husband, promising to to tako bim homo to Delaware. No man could resist such an appeal. It is imposs: bio to think ol such an incident without emotion. Mr. Saulsbury is one of the ablest, most cogent and effective speakers in tbe Senate, of fine personal appearance, tall, erect, d -rk complexion, with piercing black eyes and jet black bair, courtly and imrree tiv: in his manner, and of noblo and gener ous impuke-g.

Hut to-day a smart westerly breeze is blow ing not so slrong as to disturb mnrh tbe large Tessels at author in deep water ; but strong enough to bting in a liiely surf and to make I the lighten which are moored thirty or forty roda out-dance on the waves like cockle shells. Walking out to enjoy tbe fresh breeae from the I ocean, it ts interesting to watch tbe fishing boats come in. These fishing boats are strong yawls ! fourteen to sixteen feet in length, with ! breadth and depth enough to make them good 1 sea boat?, and moved by either oars or seils.

A stranger who had prev coaly noticed tbe character of tbe shore would be ready to aay that tbe chance ef dashing tbe host to pieces was ten times as great as that cf bringing it in unburn eJ. For tbe whole shore is faced with a ragged rock, nowhere preuating any re rr high points but funning an uninterrupted jagged belt from ten tu thirty fret wide, looking as if had been deposited there a maw of half cooled lata, every where about as rough and aharp as the slags thrown ont of a smelting foraaar. Seaward of this l!t of reek is a bottom of sand, shelving off iwttty rapidly into deep wat, r. Landaard of it, a sandy beach runs np tor many fcrl, fjrming piles of sand, broken conch tbeU and r..lelh:ts of coral stone. In .juiet weather tbe waves, very small in site (for the tide here fc. hsrdly worth noticing) do not break over this craggy belt of reek, bat dsth up sgaiaet it. ami send the broken water through Its rifts o as to larelv wet the edge of the sand on the inner aide.

The oars are the only things that can ! trusted now. keeping jast at that distance from the shore which would enable the santaea to hold iheir boat under control, either for a darh forward if tbe right time had come, or tor a backward movement, the rowers work tbeir way slowly along shore to fiml the desired spot. tin the Sore '! a motley crowd of black and colored i.ien, women and children, seme mothers, wires or sitters of those on Nerd, others waiting for a chance to buy fish for their dinner, and others, like myself, meie lockers on. Many sturdy fishermen are 00 the alert to lend a helj iog hand when the moment comes that makts help pcssible, snd .1 troop of lively fisher Imvs are running this way and that way, excite I with the love of sport, and ready to do their part in tbe work. As the boat moves to tbe right or the left, the multitude sway one way or tbe other. Occasional shouts go forth and arms are brandished to signal those in the boat, and eaer discussions start up among the most experienced fishermen as to tbe saftst spot 1 wake a landing. A; toon as d is r..dcnt that a landing is to be attempted 2 half dozen or more naked fisher boys, seeming ly from twelve to fifteen years of age, dash into the surf and make for tbc boat, the boatmen meanwhile throwing over board the ballast slJ getting all ready for the start.

The section from Moatprlier to the Cvnneeti cut River is now being puhed, and iti construc tion is assured.

With a saving of fifti miles fnm Montpelier in reaching a good shipping port and over a road leased to one having so controlling an 1 influence as the Vermont Central, it is not diffi- 1 cult to see that Portland would soon heeo-ne tbe ' great port of entry sad shipment fcr the ra.t , rej:, 1 e on and brvend ibe rrtal lakes ' At a recent tailroad u,eetii.g m P tl,t 1 I Kx-Gov.
