A oosreapondtnre of the London FitiJ gives the following interesting narratrre : In June, 1854, Mr. Simmonds, a larmtr, Tending at Brooklacd Farm, Wej bridge, was drceiing in order to attend tbe rent audit at Wuburn House. Btforc potting onhk cat, be perceived from bis window n unusually larc swarm of bcee, Ellirg tbe air with their cloud and noise. It was, in fact, as he altcrward ascertained, two swarms that hed c mc oLt of two distinct hivee, and bad united in the air. lie run oat in bis shirt skcvi and without his hat, to see where tbey would alight. Tbe bees, after making some circies in tbe air, led him off to the bank oi Ue rim Wev. Thinking that tbc beef uiigiit cross the river, and perhaps escape, be adopted a plan net uncommon with btc-maeter?, namely, that cf throwing dust into the air among the bece . lhir often maltts them tel'Ac quick ly. Itiy did s-c'tlc quietly, snd t!ia more j to that- l.v cxrticd, lor in a thcrt time the whole of one uf tl.e largest hwarma he had ever srcn, tettlfl upn bia head, lace and Drcaat. They hung down in iront like a gieat beaid to tbe bottom of Lis waistcoat. Had be not tuen well accottomed to bees, and perftctly cvUected, bu eituati jn v oald nave been a very dangerous one , for, bad he at all irritated thin man of armed insects, be would no doch: bav. reciivcd a sufficient number of i-tingf to have placed bis life in peril. He was oMiged to clo-e bis eyes slowly, and to keep bis mouth shut. Ttun. in order to previ Lt tneir entering uie nos trils, which they i i.deavorcd tu d, he cljw lj thruoi one band tbuugh tie nmfr, and with bic two Kr -! it. mei.agtd to keep diawing Lti j l-Ii.u it.tm wiijr frm ii nastius as they tried to enter, nc brcathin all t.'ie while ae .-jftly a pMeible. This v as necessary, as been are generally irritated y being breathed upon. lie than began to c -insider what cotiix be should take, lie was some disianec Irom bis bouse, and no one near hua, or within call. His first thought was towalk si wlv into tbe Kiver Wey. and gently riik bis head under tbe water and then throw "Q tbe swarm. But a momint's considers?! die tusded him lr m that attempted leccdy. He could not have dt-engaged tbem .!!. lor many were between bis neckelotb ana bis skin and still more were crawling down bis back. He loui.d that if be walked be could not help distutbicg tbc bunging mass, and tbat every little a; itation, however slight, cauttd a bum t: J a 1.1.-6 Itom some thous ands. He then rtmemberxd the account given in TLuik jb work on bees cl a swarm settling on the lace and neck of a servant zcaid. who escaped unhurt by tbc Ci.re and advice of btr uisru-r ; he, without irritating tbe swarm, having hived it Irom oE her with a hive well smeared with honey. To avoid agitating tbe swaim, Mr. Sinunond -lowly knelt tiown on the grass and remain ed perfectly sti.l. lio then lound a number of bees we're gathering in a tease under tbc vaiMband of bis trousers, in tbe hollow of bis back, to which spot tbe others wire drawing, indicating tbat tlie queen tu tbcie. leasing, tberelore, that tbe tight ness of the waistband rendered tighter whenever be hrratned might crush, or at any rate irritate this part of the swarm, be sloaly un! otto-id tic front ci bis t routers. It is not easy to cjncene a more helpless condition than that to which Mr. Simmonde j was now reduced. He tbat was the master I ol 40 hivii-, iruiu which be could usually j levy what spoils he pleased, killing bis ! thousands at his pleasure with a brimstone ' ua , vac uvjit emuwvv;ij iu mjv v. or.c detachment of bis own army, nd was rtduceei to the mtst suppliant position, uiu to call lor help would have bein dan :us, as tbc bees near bis mouth would Liu Uen undoubtedly irritated, and would buvc irobabiy cntircdbis mouth.

Four weeks was tesnt ootice.if r cciaily ae all lie towns have cancuies to bold mean wl ile. for tbe appointment of deJiatis. The only reason ivm lor letting it socaily, viz. tat the Courts in evcial Coontns arc I eld in June, set las hardly a snfBrnct one. The portien ef tie prrrie Hi attrndanee e.n Courts is not so large but tbat they can tind tin e to bold tte caucuses, and men to serve as d legates, witb whom tbe I'eeaioo of tbe Courts would make no difference. Jlat it is not a matter oi immense const no (nee, so far as we ran see. There will be time enough probably, though none to spare, to secure a full and prop r it pri seniatiun uf tbe people, snd if so it will perbars be as well to have the State ticket lekctid snd in tbc field, rooner later. The determination ol tbe basis fur the ee lection cf delegates was left to the Com mittee, and it has been judiciously arranged by tbem. It was of course to tc expected that each town should have at least one de'igatc. Tbe addition ul one deb-gate fur every 150 votes for tbe Bcpubliean Candidate for Governor at tbe last election, will give I body of 3G1. which is as large as can t-e nc Oiuiinodated comfortably in Muntpclier. and large enough for all practical purposes. ne nerd not say that wc rrj'.iee to open our columns at hat to a call for a Jikgatt State Convention.

Previa1 eat Lincoln unc Ana Rutted gr. - From tbe Atlantic Monthly for April. Abraham lineoln, bom in tbe class of poorest emigrants, was trained to a far dif ferent life, in his early home, from tbat which tbe books describe. 1 do not think that it was upon slavery that Thomas Lin coln turned bis back wben be went to India na. It was upon a brawling reckless neigh borhood, that made life unendurable. Tbe pious care of good, poor parents, so touch mcly described in our books, only to be ri diculed in Illinois, Abraham certainly had. His step-mother a woman far supciior to any whom Thomas Lincoln could have h ( ci t w in in any state cf society but one which made a mm a necessary protector ot every woman secni to have lcn his fir-t and best friend. To lier he W4 alwavs gratelul. and tU Ust st. vl between he- and tr :!"

" 'Tm Abraham Lirtoolu holds the pen ; He uill be good, bat J-1 .Vsoics wf.m :" I am not ashamed of e tears that starred a 1 read, with instructed eyec. tbat lull despairing prayer. He never carried f r i'n biqua the " laughing face "' Cbarics Sumner once ascribed to him. His life had bcn sad ; there was nothing pleasant to remem ber in anything connected with the past many things he would have given tbe WotlJ to forget. ' 1 must make a name for my self." he began to think ; and. turning his back on tbe borne which be bad no desire tu see again, be went to Xew-Silcm, and open ed his life a a shop-keeper and surveyor. 11 ere he met with a womin more cultivated and refined tban cmld have been tipe'tcd ' 1 found among tbc pe-p!e I have d.-ciihed. Once about tbe time of bis arrival there he was wrestling, in Illinois stylo, with bia sister Sarah and some neighbors' girls. lie threw one of tie litter maghly, and his sister turned npon him with sharp words. " What do you ever expect io lie.'" she asked. " if yon treat women like thit ?' 'A sort of a shadow settled over I :m ; tl c exhilaration of the gymnast disappeucd, and nutting a band on each of ber shoulders, he answered seriously. " I am to be a great man, Sarah, and am to have a sad 1'estiny ." then turned and left her. Wheihrr tbis great, sad destiny" encompassed him even then whether those dark, s-id eyes tjld his story without word- or wbetlier, as waof natural, Mr. Lincoln told t the only girl he iver Lved a talc of sorrow, such as be aftir wards admitted to bis best friends among men, wc stall never know. It is enough ts know that tbe hearts of Ann Rutkdge and Abraham Lincoln drew together, and thit tbe key to bis whole life will one day to shown to lie in tbe facts ot this love, and those facts of his history which transpired before bis birth. Ann Rutledge was a lady one of tbc very few tbat bad penetrated to Illinois as early as lf.33. Of a family educated and aristo cratic, she was betrothed, beloro Mr. Lin coln ever saw her, to a Scotch merchant, la those days Illinois was ai far from New York as Ksmsohatka now is. They were soon to be mam d. wben the Scotchman wnt for business purposes to tbat city. For months, nothing was beard of him. It was supposed tbat be was deid, or bad wickedly deserted Acs. The truth m that be lay ill of a dcliii his fever, while Ado's mind ws tortured by su'-pense and disappointment. Mr. Lincoln went to ber father's house to board.

The Sew York T ri'june, very f.ulitbly, as we think, is endeavoring to read the VVims out of the Republican party, by represent ing it as "thoroughly alienated from tbe lb publicans, and intent on their def.ttt and prostration."

It also denies tbe suggestion of tbe Tribunt tbat it has at any time lust readers or purchasers, and claims to be in a Condition more pros perous tban ever be fore. It also states that it l as no purpose of leaving tbe Republican l-arty so long as tbat party is true to its own principles, and stops abort of those wild ex trt uics which some of its uu tubers now and then advocate. Washington Tiiibitoet. We are allowed to make extracts from a privr.te letter from a resident of Washington Territory, which will give information to many wb'j know very little of tbat far off corner of Uncle Sam's possessions. The writer lives on the Cbehalis river, which rises near the head of l'ugct's sound and empties into the Pacific north of tbe Columbia : There is a strip of lacd along the Chehalis from a mile to five miles wide that has seme prairies on it containing from section to three sections each ; they are mostly a sandy gravelly soil producing bunch grass. Immediately oa the bank of the river, are rich bottoms over flowed sometimes io the winter, covered witb a heavy growth of vine-maple, crab-apple and willow, with scattering large ash, maple and al der. Around the edges 01 the prairies are found scattering oaks. Back from the prairies arc tbe hills, covered with an immense growth of fir. spruce, heaeioek ac.l cedar.

There has been very little of this land cleared yet, though some of it is very good; tie lanl is mostly taken up along the river, ti. i.i there are some good claims back half a nule or a mi e.

The worst natural woed we have is fern, whkh .r.aa over tbc whole country, in some places as high as or feet : the roots run three or tear feet deep, and I have not seen much of it k.lled out yet Fruit-trees grow fine on these prairies for five 13 tight years, and bear heavy cr ps of apples f. r to young trees ; but then thev take what we ciil tbe tlaetc-irpot, and soon the whole tree dies. Orchards do bet ter near tbe salt water ani on lanl that has been cleared. The pra":es around the held of the Chehalis and tbe Cowlitz river ate different ; they are a deep rich day foil, producing 10 or 50 bushels of wheat to the acre, wben well cultivated. Most of the grain west of the Cascades in this Territory, is raised in this section of tbe coun try it has been a great deal of work to est this grain to market heretofore ; bnt bow there is a little steamer 00 tbe river, that will take freight down the Chehalis and up Black river to within 12 miles of Olympiv. Oar climate here h mild bat cool. We have about one month pretty warm, aad oae month cold weather ; the rest of the year is pretty equal, the thermometer ranging from 40 to 50 degrees in winter, and from 50 to CO degrees in summer. There is a good deal of blustering stormy weather in March and April, and there is not much summer weather till June. Corn and peach trees and vines will not do much, ex cept in a few fiivored localities. The prevailing S. W. winds in summer keep the air too cool for them ; but for apples, pears, plums &&. it can't be beat. Potatoes and all root crops grow fine here; we have never ha I potato rot yet There is a great deal of wet here in the winter the wind mostly from tbe S. E. ; when it gets E. and S. E , we hate our co'd weather. W'e have not bad frost enough tbis winter to f z quarter of as inch deep, thi ugh some winters the thermometer has gone down to near xero. Southern Oregon is a great dial w aimer tban here ; corn 4Sc., does well there.

Silks is on one of the coast island, and probably represents fairly tl temperature of the pan-handle portion of Bos iaa America, and alao the peninsula of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. This portion of tl territory, probably two or three times as Ion as Vt., lies in the same latitude as Ssotland Denmark, the touthern par s f Norwej and Sweden, aud the central parts of Kuatia ; sr. has about the same temperature. Six European Capitals, all large cities, Edinburgh, Copeab gen. Christiana, Stockho m, Mcscow and St IMersbdrgh lie in Ike same latitude ; the last is some three degrees north of Sitka, and has population of more tban half a million. Ac eording to Sir John Richardson, tbe iwau an naal temperature of the following places is Southern point of Greenland, Lai. 60 .oil Okak. Labrador. Ut. 57 e CO'. 27,86 ; Fort Churchill, west of Hudson's Bay. Ut. i'J 02' 18,19 ; Fort Chipewan, Athabasca Ukr.

Thus Sitka is t down as just equal to Baffilo in temperature, m! warmer than any other of the places named. Sir John ssys, "On the Island of Sitks.thoueh the fo-est,aour- ished by a comparatively fetch a.eaa tempos. tare aad a very moist atmcsher. & equal that ef the richest wood-lands ef the northern United States, vet corn dies not grow." He jays "some good crops of oats were raised on the river of tbe Mount aiim, and I believe also at Fcrt Simpson, and barley ripers well at Fort Norman on the Goth parallel." These places are on Mackenzie's River, marly opposite the centre of Russian America. And since the climate is so much warmer on tite Pacific Coast, all these facts seem to indicate that at least one third uf the tirritcry. cr a rtg'sc fiur times large as Scotland, is capable of icing made productive and as populous at. 1 ss wealthy as Scotland. Thongh tbr last to he civilized on this continent, as ScMlvnd cn tbe eastern, may it not also become, as Scotland is, tbe heme at a people distinguished for their love of industry. enterprise, learnior. religion and freedom? C. E. F. Tas Ueoigia Pktitio.v Tbc argument in the Supreme Court upon the -"rgiaretition was very skillful upon both sides. Tbe pUa of the Attorney-General was masterly. It was dear, concise, and c r.i-Iu-ive, and its simple reasoning is emprch i-ible by every body. The reply of Mr. li't.'or.r was adroit and able ; bat it diJ not dmy ti e conclusion of the Attorney Grntral t'.at tbc power claimed fur tbe Court is virti. illy tbc abso lute supreme power of the iiovi'mment. In deed Mr O 'Conor, although asserting tbc old dogma of the tbrre co ordinate branches of the Government, substantially denies it by claiming power for the Supreme Court to denounce in advance of its operation a law of Congress and to order the Pnsidmt not to obey it. Tbat he eall it an "set" of Congress instead of a law in of no impor ts nee unless be holds tbat no act of Coogres is to be considered it law until the Court certifies its constituti inality ilr. Stansbery's position is that the Geor gia petition eltirns for the Supn mo Court a veto superior to that ol the President ; a power to stay every law ol Congrcs before it proceeds to execution, and before any case baa arisen under it ; a rower which may be invoked whenever nominal parties cin be found to annul laws which the people consider whoksome and necessary .and which they instruct their representatives to pass. Moreover, it cuimi that the Supreme Court si. .11 settle tbc most vital oi ill our political questions ol the present titu-, whether the lite rebel States are still Statin in so entirely undisturbed relation to tie I'nion. Mr. O'Cotior rtpliid tl.it the Attorney General's argument conccdt d tbat Georgia is a State in tbe Union. But if it be such a Slate Congress has no more Constitutional power 1 1 regulate tbe suffrag.' in Georgia tian in Xew York or "proud M tssachusetts." Indred,much of the argument of Mr. 0 'Con or was merely a 'eprtition ol the Dem cratic spvecuTS in Congtess against the Military Bill.

' Like them be entirely omitted to state that Congress, wTiicb Is constituti mally euth..rix d to make war, can :!.,t.e cktirmii e wl in war is at an end, and what measures the security of tbe country demand Like tbem he omitted to state, th.tt as tbe surrende: l !t Georgia and tbe other States wilbout a civil Government, Congress is constitutionally outnor xed to guarantee such a gavrrnratnt tu all of tbem.

Tmt GaRDxni Will Casx which has been on trial io Riehnsonrl Cowatty, Staten Island, for tome lime past, has at length been deci ded against Mrs. Tyler. Mrs. tiaraner was tbc mother of Mrs. President Tyler. She was a lady of fortune. wh lived on States Island. After the death x-President Tyler, in Jan. 1862. Mrs. Tv'cr came Xortb. and ultimately made her me at her mother s noose, on statcn fiend, with her whole family. According to the testimony, she and her brother began to quarrel pretty soon after her arrival, mainly, it would seem, on account of her children, who be undertook to handle pretty roughly. He and bis wife were then living with Mrs Gardner, but soon left the house to Mrs. Tyler and ber family, who remained witb her mother to tbe time of Mrs. G.'s death. A short time before tbat event a new will was made, and tbe property, amounting to some two hundred thousand dollars, was all, or nearly all, given to Mrs. Tyltr. Ttui will was contested by tbc brother, -n tte ground that undue influence bad 'cm exerted, to induce tbe deceased to make a will so unequal in its provisions. And the jury, it seems, were uf this opinion, and lave decided against tbc validity of the will, leaving the estate to be divided equally between Mr. Tyler, her brother, and Henry 11 ekni .n. a grandson. Wc ,'--ervc a statement in sundry Demo cratic papers to the effect that Henry Ward Beceber ran " hundreds of votes" behind bis ticket. It is only just to say tbat tbis i- entirely untrue.
