Stedman has visited the old home of Daniel Webster at Marsh tield, and thus describes some of its fea tures in a letter to the Tribune: "The mansion a Ions, low, cross- roofed, wooden pile lias been so often pictured that I need only speak of it as owing its attractiveness to an appearance of having grown foot after foot, oy alter ation from some old building, and of not having been made bran-new and at once; ti the long piazzas, where roses and the Virginia creeper wander at will, to its ixqiked gables; lastly, to the indefinite feeling one derives from it, that here has been a sturdy presence of mannood in the past, now gone for ever, but leaving its latent lniuvidualitv stamped upon trie lei transitory inanimate objects which sur rounded it. ' We are what suns and wind .-i ml waters make us; ' but here nature is us Webster transformed it. The house grew with him; the trees, except the old white apple tree and the lauious elm, were planted by his hand; and the rolling acres, the unbroken lawn, are the impress and the reflection of the mi n himself. The elm, under which Mr. Wei - star used to place his chair, and was p iinted sitting in country farmer's garb, differs from any specimen of New Eng land's royal bee that I have ever seen. The trunk is of the largest, but the limbs shoot out not far above the ground, and, whether by art or nature, are trained to cover a circle 100 feet in diameter, droop ing low, so that the tree casts a shadow In yond that of any Windsor oak, and en liouses you like a banyan. Tha great limb has yielded to a lecent bl ist, and touches the ground with leaves still green n;n it. As if a servitor smitten in de fence of the mansion, had sunk his wound ed limb to the earth, the tree still holds its head proudly, and wards off the tem I?st's onset with its unharmed branches." Thb principal performers in the late musical jubilee at Boston have been paid for their services as follows: Strauss, 2,000 and all expenses of himself and .vife; lime. Peschka Leutner, $7,500; the English band, including expenses, !f 13, trnO; the lrussian band leader, 1.000 in gold, and each of his players 100, their traveling expenses and hotel bills; the French band received about 12,000 and their expenses; liendel received SI, 500 and his traveling expenses and his wife's; Welhi got $1,250; the Emperor's cornet quartet was paid 1,000; Gilinore, the projector of the jubilee, gets nothing, since the receipts are now ascertained to be less by 15o,000 than the expenditures. A Fosr or Ttpe. As a scrap of infor mation, we give the proportions in which the different letters are cast to a font of type, and in which they occur in print : Letter e, 1.500; t, 9H0; a. 830; n, o, s, i, 00; h, 640; r, 620; d, 440; 1, 400; u, 340; c, lu, 300; f. 250; w, y, 200; g, p, 170; b, W0: v, 120; k, 80; q. o3; j, x, 40; z, 20; Besides, there are the combined letters, n.

In those I takes the nrst" place, then T. then A and E, etc. The largely increased mails to be car ried from 'Chicago to New York, have inilnced the managers of railways to put on mail trains proper, each to consist of me locomotive and three mail cars, to be run through in twenty-four hours. Sev eral cars are now building for that pur-l-o. each fifty feet long and adapted for lust running. Ko stoppages are to be made except for coal and water, and it is intended that the distance miles) shall be accomplished in the time stated, w hich would be running r.t the rate of over fortv miles an hour. " I keep the best bread, " said a certain baker to a poor fellow who complained of the inferior quality of the article he had purchased of him the day before. " I don't doubt it," replied the customer. " Then why do you complain?" asked the baker. " Bjcause I would suggest tnat voa keep the bad and sell the best," was tiie reply. He went out, and safely iodged a bread tin. " Humph!" said an Englishman to a Srotclunan, as they were walking over the fields, ' oats are very well in their way, l.nt in England we feed them to oar horses, -.chile here they are food for men." " and j.tst see what fine horses there are in Eng land, and what fine men we have in Scotland." Wbxn Barnnm'a cannibals offered one of the spectators at the show in Louis viije $10 if he would give him his little boy on the half-shell for breakfast this morning. ' My boy is not for sale," re plied the fond parent, "but I've got a s rCI-fed mother-in-law yon can have for hnlf the money." BtfMKESS NOTICE.

' The Herjublican nartv of the United States. sombled in a National Convention, in the city of Philadelphia, on June S and 6, Is. 2, again He ctares its faith, appeals to its history, and an nounce its position upon the questions before tne country. 1. During eleven years of its supremacy, it has accepted, with grand courage, the solemn duties 01 tne tunes, it suppressed s gifjsnucreoeuion; emancipated 4,0u0,uuu of glares; decreed the equal citizenship of all, and established universsl suf frage. Exhibiting unparalleled magnanimity, it has criminally punished no man fur political of fenses, and warmly welcomed all who proved their loyalty by obeying the laws and dealing justly with their neighbors. It has steadily- de creased with a firm hand the resultant disorders of the great war, and initiated a wise policy to ward the Indians. The Pacific Railroad and sim ilar vast enterprises have been generously aided andViccessfully conducted; the public land free ly given to actual settlers; immigration encour aged and protected, and a full ai'kuowledgment of naturalized citizens' rights secured from uro-pt-an powers. A uniform national cuir-mcy has been provided, repudiation frowned down, the national credit sustained under the most extra ordinary burdens, and new bonds negotiste. st lower rates; tne revenues have been careiuiiy col lected and honestly applied. Despite the annual large reductions of rates of taxation, the public debt has been reduced during General Gram's Presidency at the rate of f lmi.UUO.UUO a year; a great financial encis has been avoided, ana peace and plenty prevail throughout the land. Men acing foreign diffiiculties have been peacefully and honorably compromised, and the honor and power of the nation kept in high respect through out the world. This glorious record of the past is the patty's bast pledge fur the future. We be lieve that the people will not entrust the Gov ernment to any party or combination of men composed of those who chiefly have resisted every step of this beniheial progress. 2. Complete liberty and exact equality in the the enjoyment of all civil, political and public rights should be established and effectually main tained throughout the I nion by efficient and ap propriate State and Federal legislation; neither law nor its administration should admit of any disi rimination in respect to citizens by reason i f race, creed, color, or previous condition of servi tude. a. The recent amendments to the National Con stitution should be cordially sustained because they are right, and not merely tolerated because they are law, and should be carried out according to their spirit by appropriate legislation, the en forcement of which can be safely trusted only to the party that secured those amendments. 4. The National Government should seek to maintain an honorable peace with all nations, protecting its citizens everywhere, and sympa tliyzing with all people who strive for greater liberty. 6. Any system of civil service under which the subordinate positions of the Government tre con sider rewards lor mere party zeal, is fat?.lly de moralizing, and we then fore favor a system by laws which shall acolish the evils of patronage, and make honesty, efficiency and fidelity essen tial qualifications for public position, without practically creating a lile tenure of omce. 6. We are opposed to further grants of public lands to corporations and monopolies, and de mand that the national domain be set apart for free homes for the people. 7. The annual revenue, after paying current debts, should furnish a moderate balance for the reduction of the principal; and revenue, except such as may be derived from a tax on tobacco and liquors, be raised by duties on importations. the duties on which should be so adjusted as to aid in securing remunerative wages to the la borer, and promote the industries, growth and pruspt rity of the whole country. 8. e hold in undying honor the soldiers and sailors whose valor saved the I'niou; their pen sions are a sacred debt of the nation, and the widows and orphans of those who died for their country are entitled to the care of a generous and grateful people. We favor such additional legislation as win extend the bounty of the Gov ernment to all our soldiers and sa,ljrs who were honorably discharged, and who in th ; line of dutv became disabled, without regard to length of service or cause of such discharge. 9. The dictrine of Great Britain and othr Euro pean powets concerning allegiance once a sub ject always a subject having at last, through the efforts of the Republican party, been aban doned, and the American idea of the individual's right to transfer his allegiance having been ac cepted by European nations, it is the duty of our Government to guard with jealous care the rights of our adopted citizens against the assumption of unauthorized claims by their former eovern inents. and we urge continual and carelul encour agement and protection to voluntary immigration. lu. The franking privilege ought to be abol ished, and the way prepared for a speedy reduc tion in the rates of postage. 11. Among the quaticn4 which press for atten tion, is that which concerns the relations of capital and labor, and the Republican party re cognize the duty of so shaping legislation as to secure full protection and the amplest field for capital; and for labor, the creator of capital, the largest opportunities and a just share of mutual profits ot thee two great servants 01 civilization. lz. We hold that Congress and the President have only fulfilled an imperative duty in their measures for the suppression of violent and trea sonable organizations in certain lately rebellious regions, and for the protection of the ballot box; and. therefore, they are entitled to the thanks of the nation. 13. We denounce the repudiation of the public debt in any form or disguise, as a national crime. We witness with pride the reduction of the prin cipal of the debt, and of the rates 01 interest on the balance, and confidently expect that our ex cellent national currency will be perfected by a speedy resumption of specie payments. 14. The Republican party is mindful of its ob ligations to the loyal women of 'America for their uoble devotion to the cause of freedom ; their admission to the wider fields of usefullness is re ceived with satisfaction, and the honest de mands, of any class of citizens for additional rights should" be treated with respectful consid t ration. l.i. We heartily approve of the action of Con gress in extending amnesty to those lately in re bellion, a 'Hi rejoice in the growth of peace and fraternal feeling throughout the land. 16. The Republican party propose to rcspeet the rights reserved by the people to themselves as carefully as the powers delegated by them to the State and to the Federal Government. It disapproves of the resort to unconstitutional laws for the purpose of removing evils by inter ference with the rights not surrendered by the people to neither the State or National Govern ment. 17. It is the dutv of the General Government to adopt such measures as will tend to encourage American commerce and shipbuilding. 18. We believe that the modest patriotism, the earnest purpose, sound judgment, practical wis. dom. incorruptible integrity and illustrious serv ices ot I rysses a. want nave commenaea aim to the hearts of the American people, and, with him at our head, we start to-day on a new march to victory.

UNION REPUBLICAN STATE CEN TRAL COMMITTEE AT A MEETING OF THE UNIOS RKPUB lican State Central Committee, held in this City on SATURDAY, July 27, 1872, the following business was transacted : Resolved, That a State Convention of the Union Republican party be held at Reno on Wednesday, the 25th of September next, at 12 o'clock v., to nominate three Presidential Electors, one Mem ber of Congress, one Justice of the Supreme Court, and one State Printer, and the transaction of such other business as shall properly come be fore said Convention. Retolred, That each county be entitled to onA delegate at large, one for each 100 votes, and one for each fraction over 50 votes cast for Alfred Helm, elected Clerk of the Supreme Court at the general election of 1870. Resolved, That in accordance with the resolu tion of the last Republican State Convention, the various County Central Committees, so far as the same may be practicable, be advised to cause the primary elections to be conducted as follows : First In each election precinct clubs shall be organized, the members of which shall vote at the headquarters of the club for delegates to the County and State Conventions. Second No person shall vote who is not a member of the club ; and in every precinct where there is a Registry Agent he shall also be a votr r registered for the ensuing election. Third That the test for club membership re. quired of voters shall be : Will you support the regular Republican ticket at the next election National, State and County and the Republican platform adopted at Philadelphia, and such fur ther test as the respective County Committees may prescribe ? Resolved, That it is the sense of this committee that a contest at the primary elections between the candidates for United States Senator should be avoided, and that in order to avoid such con test, a plan should be devised by which the voters at the general election may have an opportunity of expressing their preference for United Stat4-s Senator on their ballots, and that the member elected to the Legis'.tture shall be considered in structed in accordance with such preference, and we recommend this subject to the attention of the various County Central Committees.
