I have on various occasions seen learned disquisi ions on tvhat wou'.a have 1 eon the result if some great event which did happen had not hap pened: for instance, if Grouchy had ar rived aj Waterloo before Bluchei: or if the Athenians had cru3hp«i Sparta in the Fel ponn«3ian war. or if Hanni ble had taken Rome when he advanced to its gates. But there is a greater problem than any of these. What would have happened if Adaoi had re fused to eat the other half or the ap ple? Wwitld ho kavo remained in Par adise, and the hupfian race have en joyed unintcrupted happiness? What ever answer might be given to those que«tions, I take it fir grantei that he understood ail vhe conscquenccs of this act. The common principles of justice require that qo punishment shall be in flicted except in accordance with previ ous notifies lion for an offence expressly prohi'iited. If the amount of the punishment, is not fajrly stated, the offender car. com plain of deception. The Courts can not inflict a punishment greater than that stated in the law. And we read in Gcneeis that full notification was given to Adam. In the face of that notification without any unmanly scold ing, without delay or hesitation- with no attempt to dolge his inevitable fate —lie composedly took that great bit® whjch decided the fate of humanity through all age3.

The heroism of Cwdi us, Hutius, Scevola, and Arnold Winkelried sinks into insignificance &s compared rath that of the great fath er of the race. Human nature was a1ready prctiy well developed. Bet ter w:raan without paradise than para ad^se without woman. Those were Adam's sentiments. These are my sentiments. Those .ve the sentiments of every mil that-is a man. If Ad am's choice were offered to mo to-day I verily believe that I have enough of his blood in me to do a3 he did. I yrilleall my first boy "Adam," and when he gets big enough I will tell him why.

Travelers conveyed to all parts of the short netiee and reasonable! person exercising or carry ing on trade country on terms. fnfOvotf If you want te bay eroekery of any kiad cheap fo ie I IE, 4. S Gentlemen: Yoursof November 4th 4n relation to your license as lawyers, is received. I reply, that by section 79J lawyers are subject to pay $10.00 for each license. By section 74. every business or profession, for which license is required, must produce his license on dc.mand of any officer of Internal lieve COWAlf & nut, and unless he shall do so, may be taken and deemed to have no license. The penalty for not having license is imposed by section 73. In the case of lawyers, one of a firm of which, is often at Court, while the other remains at the ol&cfc, it seems peculiarly necessary that each have a license by him, in order to escapo the penalties of Section 73, resulting from any domnnd of a Revenue officer under Stetion 74. -Isi In as much at you have but ofre li cense between you, you will be re-asses sed under Section SQj ncces°arily, for the amount due under the new law. The tax is not $20. upona partnership of attorneys, but $10.00 upon each and every lawyer whether in partnership or not.—Davenport Democrat. A COOL TOPER.—,A good anecdote is told of a man named Bently, a con firmed drinker, would never drink with a friend or in pu blic, and always bitterly denied, when a little too steep ever tasting liquor. One day, some bad witnesses conccaled themselves in his room, and ylten t',-e liquor was running down his throat, seized him with his arm crooked and his mouth open, and holding him fast, asked, with an air of triutr.pli, "Ah Bently, have we caught you at last? You never drink eh?" No one would suppose but that Bently would have acknowl edged the fact. Not iie with the most grave and inexpressible face, he calm ly, and in a digr.ifcd manner said: "Qentleman, my name is not Bently!" ON PKTTICO ATS, Eiihu Burritt has been making cal culations about womana petticoats— qucor business for the learned Black smith—and says that more than 10,. 000 tons of steel arc put up into crino line in Christendom annually. Upcn this the Boston Traveler remarks: "Such is the magnitude of crinoline considered from a business point of view, and no y»ronder that the article takes up so much room in the world. Tv.*::,t-y iiiillion pounds of iron worked up yearly into petticoats and carried about by the delicate creatures! It roust be a far greater burden than their sins. But they get along very well with it, and thrive under its weight. Iron, according to Solon, is the most potent of all thing*, conquer ing even gold's owners and ladies find it a very useful article in making their conquests. Just now it rules, 'the court, Ui« camp, the groye,' and is po tential everywhere, from castle to cot tage. In every sense this is the Age of Iron, every woman acknowledging the rule of the government of metals a rule that literally encircles them. Those who would abolish the hoop must see that they have a great inter est to contend against, and that all good convcrgatives are boi^nd to oj^o^e them." THE EFFECT OF UlAltRI AGE, A late number of tho Frazer's Mag azine has the followiug: Doubtless you have remarked with satisfaction how the little oddities of men who marry rather late in life are pruned away speedily after their mar riage. You have found a man who uaed to be carelessly dressed, with a hugh shirt collar frayed at the edge, and a glaring yellow silk pocket hand kerchief, broken of those things—be come a pattern of neatness. You have seen a man whoso hair and whiskers were ridiculously cut, speedily become like other human beings. You have seen a clergyman who wore a long beard and in a lit tip while appear with out one. You have seen a man who used to sing ridiculous sentimental songs leave them off. You have seen a man who took snuff copiously, and who generally had his bosom covered with snuff, abandon the vile habit. A wife is a grand wieldcr of the mor al pruning knife. If Johnson's wife had lived, there would have been no hoarding up of bits of orange peel no toughing all the postf in walking along the streets no eating and drinking with a disgusting voracity. If ever Oliver Goldsmith had been married, he would never have «v©m that memorable and ridiculous coat. Whenever you find a man, whom you know little about, oddly dressed or talking ridicu lously, or exhibiting eccentricity of manner, you may ho tolerably sure it he is not a married man. For the it tie corncrs are rounded off, the lit tle Khoots are pruned away in married men. Wives, generally, have much more sense than their husbands, es pecially when their husbands are clov er men. The wife's advices are like the ballast that keeps the ship steady. These are wholesome though, painful shears, snipping off little growths of self conceit and folly. ..... mOjf i ——..ii THE PTAC'K I ISSUE, As so many arc now discussing the question of Peace, we commend the following rcmaiks from Sidney Smith. .—a good teacher in troubles among States and people. We shall hope for Peace when we see a disposition upon each side tc concede something of ex treme opinio:^ and ideas: "It is very difficult to make the race of aiankind believe that the state of things is over to be otherwise than they have been nccu3tomed to see it. I have very often heard oM people de scribe the impossibility of making any one believe that the American colonies could ever be separated from this country. It was always considered ns an idlp d^eain of discontented politic ians, good enough to fill up the periods of a speech, but which no practical man, devoid of the spirit of party, con sidered to be within the limits of pos sibility. There was a period when the slightest conccssion would have satis fied the Americans, but all the world was in hcroics. One set of gentlemen met at th? Lamb, and another at the Lion blood aifd treason men, breathing war, vengeance and contempt and in ejght years aftcrwards» an awkward '(.king gentleman, in plain clothes, walked up to the drawing room cf St. James, iri the midst of the gentlemen of the Lion and the Lamb, and was introduced ns the Ambassador from the United States yf America. We hope the spectacle hero painted may never happen to us, but the lesson is a wise one, and wise men will not loose the sight of it. If a slight con cession can restore the Union, let it bo made promptly, magnanimously, with out threats.—as proposed by Gen. Butler,—meaning Clio' best and ho ping for the best. Coleridge says that our experience is like a light in the stern of a ship, shining over her wake. Let us make better use tf our experience. Let it shine Lhead o.f us and instruct us for the future. RKCOGN1ZKD.—While G)V. Chi'se was walking along fourth street, yester day, an urehin stopped hirn and said '•Mister ain't you the man what has his picture on the greenback money." The Govcrner replied: Yes my boy, 1 believe you are correct and handing the boy some change, passed on.— :for Cin- cinatti Enquirer. —,—: h* The biography of Lieutenant Gener al Winfield Scott, prepared by himself produces an article on arbitrary arrests written by him and published in the Na tional Intelligencer, January 4, 18G3. In that article Gen. Scott condemns as "monstrous" the trial of any citizen not in the military by a court martial. Referring to the 5th and 6th amend ments i the constitution, he says: If these amendments do not express ly securo the citizen, not belonging to the army, from the possibility of being dragged beiore a council of war, or court martial for any crime, on any pre tense whatsoever, then there can be no security for any human right under hu man institutions. .Congress and the president could not, if they were unani mous, proclaim martial law over any portion of the United States without i im £100 PER ANNUM wtW1"N7T^I, first throwing these amendments ir.to the fire. It i3 vulgarly sup posed, particulaaiy by those who, •'dressed in the little brief authority,' and lust for more, that ihe sus pension of habeas corpus, lets ir* upon the citi»ens martial law. The suspension by Congress would, certain ly, for the time, enable power to hold any citizen incarcerated without cause and without trial l.ut, it brought to. trial, it must still e hefor^ one of the ordinary cotms of the land.—&ee Au tobiography of Scot I. vol. If. "b9. Gov* Seymour, of $ew York, issued a proclamation outhc 21st uTt., which clearly foreshadows another drufr.
