THE WONDERFUL CLOVER LEAF. STORY WITH A MORAL OR TWO. Blinking, coins' to school, saw something elitterlne liko a dew-drop, only much larger. Going tin to it he saw a little man asleep in a tulip. This little man was dressed lu silver armor, and his wings shone all over like the diamond spots in a dragon-fly's wing. Simkins felt sure this was a fairy, and he did not dare to touch liim ; but at his foot lay a little pack hup, furiously folded In a clover leaf, which he instantly seized. ." Do not touch me," said tho clover leaf. "I am a wish, and I bclon? to this fairv. Whoever wears me can always have his wish, but what ho has wished for before Will vanish." " Just the thing I want," said Simklns, putting tlie packet in his bosom, " what fun I will have ; only I wish I was not go ing to school to-day. As soon as he said that ho found him self climbing a high mountain, covered witli fruit trees and berries. " Jolly 1" shouted Simkins, eating as fast as he.could, " but it don't make a fellow fed like walking. I wish I was on an easy going pony." But then, you remember that, by wishing a second wish, ho would do away with his first wish. So Simkins, on tho hack of an easy-going pony, was no longer on the fruit-coTered mountain, but in the school-room. Just think what a clatter tho horso's hoofs made on tho floor I The boys all dropped their books and started, and the master pounded with his cane on tho floor and shouted : "Stop, sir I Get off, sir I Aren't you ashamed, sir ?" But Simkins couldn't get off. lie kicked and ho struggled, lie pulled on tho reins and screamed, but ho never onco 'remem bered to wish himself oft. Tho master ran after Simkins, and be gan to pound him. "I wish I were riding you," blubbered Simkins. The sumo instant tho pony van ished, and there was Simkins on tho mas ter's back I Tho master roared, and tho boys scream ed and danced about in their excitement. " Mercy 1" "If I was only home I" groaned Simkins. "While ho was yet speaking he whisked in through the window of his mother's sit ting room. "That is a very singular way ol enter ing the house," observed his mother. "I wish you could bo where I have been," said Simkins ; " you would come in the window, too." Simkins' mother vanished at onco, and, rushing out after her, Simkins saw her flying through the air liko mad ou a bee lino for the school-house. Simkins flew rather than ran. Ho knew very well what ho would find. Ho burst open tho door, ho tore up tho stairs, and rushed into tho schoolroom. Thcro was tho schoolmaster running up and down tho room, with Simkins' mother screaming on his back. " O, I wish you back again ! I wish you backl" screamed Simkins. And there was ho at homo again, and his mother whip ping him with all her might. " I will teach you to play ino such a trick," cried his mother, who was angry, and no wonder. When ho could mako himself heard, Simkins explained what had happened. " Foolish boy I" said tho mother ; why did you not wish for something splendid nt once f Wish that wo had a splendid new house." Simkins wished, and tho wholo family found themselves in such a fine great man sion thai? they were ready to burst with pride. "I wish neighbor Green's folks wero hero to see us," said Simkins. " They al ways put on such airs." The finrt -new house disappeared, and biinkins ana ins lunniy stoou out, in me street, with neighbor Green and his family staring at him. Simkins took tho clover-leaf package from his bosom in a rage, and threw it as fur ns ho could. " I wish I may never sec you again," ho said. And of course-ho got that wish, too.

Ono soft summer morning -a few years since, tho littlo village of Listou waked up with a sublime (or, at least, within a step of it) that something wonderful ht'.d hap pened. Tho bank had been broken open und robbed of all its treasure. A few weeks' beforo a traveling elocu tionist had entered tho 'village, accom panied by a couple of well dre9ed gentle men, who turned out to bo on a sporting excursion. The quiet villagers excited no improper suspicions among tho envious villagers, who wero usually quite willing to dissect every newcomer in tho most un merciful manner. Tho professor of elocution gave a series ot lectures, to tno marvelous cuincatton of incipient Ciceros and beau-loving indies ; ana men went on nis way rcioic- inc. But his companions remained, rambling about tho woods and river for several days altcrwards, wuen they sua denly departed to parts unknown. For several morninjis alter thair disap- pcaranco the gentleman who occupied apartments immediately over tho bank found his rooms in a slight state of diS' order. The chairs which, on leaving tho olllce at niglit, ho had arranged with eyt temntic care, appeared to have been per forming some marvelous feats of somnam bulism ; tho table in tho center of tho room had evidently been used as a medium of spiritual Tappings, and scleral articles seemed to have been executing some ex temporised polka in tho absence of their owner. After milking a few inquiries and a littlo unsuccessful investigation to ascertain the cause of theso unnatural phenomena, the matter was allowed to pass without fur ther notice. But tno robbery or tno nansc at onco nrouwd suspicion. In examining tho ottl.ee floor it was discovered that a large piece of tho flooring had been cut out with tho utmost nicety ; and the burglars had made an unsuccessful effort Jtjj break a largo stone that covered tho vuult, and thus ob tain access to tlie treasure. But, undaunted by their failure, they only waited for a favorable night to com uience operations in another quarter. tor several days alter Uio nrsi utiempi tho weather continued pleasant; but at last tho scowling skies gave token of the approach of a heavy storm of rain and thunder. As the deep, black night came down upon tho village, largo drops of rain pattered on the rool's and windows, and fitful gusts of wind shrieked around tho cotuers of the deserted streets, aud made tlie trees ghobtly with unearthly groan ing. Soon after midnight tho storm set in w ith all possible fury. Every unfastened casement and shutter trembled and clat tered ; through every loose splinter of tho fences tho wet; wind whistled; and tho rain dashed ugalnst the window, as II, indeed, "the windows of heaven wci'e opened."

By means of a plank, ono end which was placed upon the ground and other upon the casement, they quickly ascended to tho window, which was easily forced open. The particular manner In which the was performed 1 still a matter of much peculation; and it Is only definitely that when the morning dawned the and the safo had been most success opened, their contents stolen and the thieves were more than fifteen miles away t At eight Vclock in the morning tlie man ager of the bank entered the building; but discovered nothing unusual until hq at tempted to open the iron door of the vault, which was secured by a largo pad lock of such intricate construction that a year before, at the World's Fair in London, it had defied the skill of Hobbs, celebrated lock-picker. The burglars picked the lock, and locked it again with such ingenuity that it could not be opened. Alter various attempts to unfasten the door, a mason was sent for and a hole made in the side of a vault sufficiently large to admit a man's body. The bank officer still supposed the lock had been ac cidentally broken ; but as the manager enj tered the vault, a burnt match upon the floor aroused his suspicion. Immediately' beneath the safo ho discovered a qttanj of plaster, and, on turning the key, door swung open, and lol the safo entirely empty. Not a solitary penny left a a sign of the treasure it had so recently contained. The desperate fellows first unscrewed the brass doorplato bearing the niftne of the manufacturer, had then bored directly through the chilled iron platings and plaster a smooth, round hole about four inches in diameter, through which the specie and notes wero easily extracted. Officers were immediately dispatched throughout the country; but were all un able to ascertain even the course tho thieves had taken ; and despite the skill of detectives who wero employed to work the case, no traco of the fugitive vil lains could be discovered. As I entered the coach one morning I agreeably surprised to find that it con tained tho manager of the bank, who, like myself, was starting on a journey. Taking the train at Bilson, wo continued journey. As tho train stopped at Crewe two well dressed men came in, and took a scat im mediately in front of the one we occupied. a few moments one of them sliehtlv changed his position and rested his arm upon the back of the seat. His hand was strikingly white and delicate, and on the little finger gleamed a chased ring of pecu liar pattern and exquisite workmanship. I observed that my companion had watched them closely since they entered train; and as his eyes rested on the ring, face lit up witli an expression of nerv ous satisfaction. Whispering to mo that those fellows wero the bank burglars, he hurried to obtain assistance from tho guard, the strangers wero arrested without slightest resistance. Before returning homo with tho prison tho manager related tho manner of their detection. Beneath tho window, through which they had effected an en trance stood a largo table, upon which the dust had been allowed to accumulate find creeping across it, one of them had left, several places, a perfect impression of left hand and a chased ring, bearing the initials "D. P." which he wore upon tho littlo finger. Tho prints wero carefully reserved and on applying to them tho urglar's hand and rinjj, they wort found to exactly fit the ihipression. It is scarcely necessary to add that they proved to be tho identical companions of lecturer on elocution. In their baggage and upon their per 3ns were found full sets of burglars' in struments, and nearly a thousand pounds. JNo traco ot the traveling elocutionist yet been discovered, but the unfortu nate " D.

The most fallacious ideas prevail re specting leisure. People are always say ing to themselves, "I would do this, and I would do that, if I had leisure." Now there U no condition in which the chance doing any good is less than in tho con dition of leisure. The man fully employ ed may bo ablo to gratify his good dispo sitions by improving himself or his neigh or serving tho public in some useful way ; out tlio man who lias all bis time to dispose of as he pleases, has but a poor chance indeed of doing so. To do increas es tho capacity of doing, and it is far less difficult lor a man who is in a habitual course of exertion, to exert himself a littlo more for an extra purpose, than for a man who does little or nothing, to put himself into motion for the same end. 1 hero is reluctance In all things to be set agoing ; iui wncn mat is got over, men evcryming goes sweetly enough. Just so with the idle man. In losing the habit, he loses the power of doing. But a man who is ousy about some regular em ployment for a proper length of time every day, can very easily do something else uurmg mo remaining hours ; indeed, tho recreation of the weary man is apt to Dusier man the perpetual leisure ot the idle. As he walks through tho world, his hands hang unruffled by his side, and ho can sometimes do more by a single touch passing, than a vacant man is likely to in a twelve-month. Let no man ask for leisure in order to do anything. Let liim rather pray that he may never have iiisuio. jj. no realty wwues 10 UO any good thing, ho will always find timo for it, properly arranirinir his other cmnlov- incnt. Excluxnge A Love Story. Anot'T twenty miles from New York lives a rich man, who has a fine estate and an enterprising family, of which the eldest a beautiful young lady, her lather's pride and hope. Last year, while his elegant mansion was building, a young carpenter, who hod just finished his trade, and whose solo property consisted in a pair of large hands, a etout, good heart, aud habita of industry and soberness, came to work upon the premises. Very naturally tho young knight of the broad-ax soon fell In lovo with the. young lady ; and, not strange to say, the young lady fell equally in lovo with him. She spent considerable timo every day in watching tho progress of tho work, particularly that performed bv the young mechanic, and he found his greatest uiccuuvo unu joy m working under the wiiiiii oi uer loving eye. i no secret. However, soon lucamo an open one, and finally was broken to the young lady lather, llo heard the sad news without apparent concern, but. in few lulnuU's, set oil" for tho village, where ho made diligent iuquiry respecting the youug carpenter, w ho. he learned, was the only bon and support o.f a widow, but was an intelligent, capable, promising young man. The father returned home, and, calling his daughter to his room, asked her how the mutter stood between herself and the young carpenter. It was a critie.il moment to her, and for a moment her fear triumphed over all her other feelings, and sue burst into tears, tuo tears wero fol lowed by a confession of an attachment which had grown stronger evt ry day, even with the fear that it wai doomed to a u uel diiappoiiHuitut for tho object of It was Bothlog but a poor mechanic. ulixil love him with all my heart, and would give my itie ior mm, saiu me Honest gin. "Does ho reciprocate your affection f" nsked the father. " That he does, replied tho daughter. " But he knows that you would never con sent to his paying his addresses to me, and he has been very reserved about it. Ho talks of going away, because ho can't live here without swing mo, and thinks you would not be willing to have him visit tlio house." The latter sent for the voung carpenter, who camo to the room with the ttrc trepidation. He suspected what wiisin'li wind, and, anticipating an immediate dis missal, his heart was in his throat, when the father said to him, " Young man, how is it that you have dared to carry on a flirta tion with my daughter without my con sent t" "Thut is false, lr. utterly false, sir." the young man replied : "your daughter camo to the house where I was nt work, and I saw her and loved her. I could not keep my eyes from looking at her. She returned my look with Interest and asked mo questions. Almost every day she has been to the house, and her coming makes it seem a heaven to me, sir. But I knew I was only a poor mechanic, with a mother on my hands, and that you would not consent to my ottering nor any partic ular attention. So I have kept away. I'm Kolnir off. sir. as soon as tho lob Is done, fori cannot live without seeing her, and I would not do anything dishonorable, or that her father would disapprove. Tho young man turned his face toward tho window to hide a few stray tears which came to his eyes. Tho father looked stead ily nt the secretary, as If it contained some thing of unusual interest After a not un welcome silence, ho turned to the young man and snid : " You have acted perfect ly honorable in this matter. You shall see my daughter all you please. I hearj mat you are a worthy, industrious young man, and I prefer such a ono for my son to any desptcablo snob. I am sorry your education has been so neglected. But it is not too late to rfrmcdy that matter. I will pay your wages to your mother, and send you to school for a year or two. After you get a .good foundation laid, I will take you into my business, aud if you bear yourself in a worthy manner, one of theso days my daughter shall ho your wife." Our readers can imagine the scene and the joy that followed this speech of a wise and kind father, fur better than wo can now describe them. The young man has just finished a year's course at school, where he has made wonderlul progress. The father seems to bo as proud of him as ho well can be, and ho has found that life in his new and elegant mansion on the banks of the Hudson, with an accom plished daughter who cannot sufficiently express her gratitude, and tho occasional visits of a noblo minded young man who is working his way up in tho world, is only a sweet foretaste of elysium. If other rich fathers would follow his example, there would bo fewer elopements and less misery than nt present, and a great many happier hearts and happier homes. a J. 12 Cryptography. A tarty in New York sends us a cir cular announcing what ho calls his " new nieihoa of, key writing and secret tele graph correspondence," for which ho states, ho has secured a copyright. The circular says : "It is peculiarly adapted to tho necessities of commercial men, Buch as bankers, brokers, produce and commis sion merchants, in telegraphing the rise and fall of stocks, and instructions to cor respondents, etc. While thousands arc in possession of the same socret method, thero is no possiblo way in which any communication, telegraphic or otherwise, can bo deciphered except by tho- person to whom it is addressed. Every word that letters can form is a key, and any communication may bo written in as many different ways us there are words or sylla bles in any language. To open corres pondence it ' is only necessary to send to the person with whom you desire to cor respond a chart, and decide upon some word for a key, such as day, night, land, ocean, or any other word. Once in pos session of tho chart and key-word, your correspondence may go on indefinitely ...i.i. .. :i.!ii- i -i ii wruoui me possioiiiiy oi disclosure. In tho Democrat ot April 18, 1SG4, we published an original article on "Secret Writing," which was widely copied into exchanges, and in the course of which we described a method of correspondence by cypher, which is undoubtedly identical with the ono now claimed as new and original by tho party alluded to above. At nil events, it answers tho description which we have quoted, and will do nil that he claims for his. Wo transcribe the following directions from our articlo of four years ago : lake a square sheet ol paper, ot con venient size, say a foot square. Divide it by lines drawn nt right nngles into fivo hundred ana seventy -six squares, twenty six each way ; in tho upper horizontal row write tho alphabet in its natural order, one letter in each- square ; in the second hori zontal row write tho alphabet beginning with JJ. There will then bo ono square left at tho end of this row; into this put A. Fill the third row by beginning with (J and writing A and B after Z at the end. So on until tho whole sheetis filled. When completed, tho table, if correct, will pre sent mis appearance : in tno upper hori zontal row, tho alphabet in its natural order from left to right ; in tho left hand vertical row, tho same irom top to bot tom ; and the diagonal, from upper right to lower left hand corner, will bo a lino of Z's. Each party must have ouo of these tables. A key-word must be nLjo agreed upon, which may be any word in the Eng lish language, or from any other language. if it can be represented by English letters, or, indeed, it may even be a combination ot letters which spell nothing. Now, to send a message, first write tho message in plain Englisn. Over it writo tho key-word, letter over letter, repeating it as many times as are necessary to cover the messages. Tako a simple case as an illustration. Suppose tho key-word to be Urant, and the message Wo have Jtoe days jirovunonB. ji buouu. uo piaceu mus: urantgrantgrantgrantgrant Wehaveflvedavsprovisions.

STILES, UNITED STATES ARMY. As abstract of the report of the officer directed by Major General lleynolds, com manding, to investigate and report in re gard to the alleged outrages of tho Klu lvlux Klan in Texas, is as follows : " On tho 20th of May I proceeded to Waco, McLernan couuty, aud there found Mr. Benjamin Crouch, Mrs. Crouch, his wife, and Mrs. Dial, a widow. Mr. Crouch in formed me, under oath, that on or about tho night of April 15, IStW, tho mob or the Klu-Klux, as they are called in Bell county came into his house, and forced his wife to open tho door. Threo men Wm. Eritt, Wm. Prultt, and Joseph Webb searched the premises. They presented their pistols in Mr. Couch's face, and threatened to shoot him if he ever fed or harbored any of his friends, many of whom were lying out in fear of tho mob. After ordering Mr. Crouch to leave the county they left tho house, and Joined a band of a dozen men who waited outside. Fearing violenco Mr. Crouch left his house and moved to McLernau county. He afterward returned to his place for the purpose of getting his stock and some cot ton ho bad left in his night, but could find nothing. Ho was informed that tho prop erty was taken possession of by tho mob. no Ja'o brothers brothers-in-law to Mr. Crouch were lying out at the time, and thus escaped. They afterward tied to Ar kansas JHrs. Dial nceompnnied tho Lieu tenant as tar as Galesville in search of her ounger brother, who had been reported Ailed. On tho 21st Lieutenant Stiles pro ceeded to Perry, and took the statement of Mrs. Julia E. Eelington, us follows : That on tho night of the 23rd of April, at about o'clock, several men came to her house, about six miles above Moflittown, in Bell county, and ordered her husband to get up and mako a light, which ho did. He was then ordered to conio out of doors until they could search tho house. Mr. Eelington refusing to como out, they re tired for about thirty minutes, then return ing, two men went into the house. Mr. Eelington told his wife- to sit on his lap, which she did. At this moment one of tho men shot Mr. Eelington through tho head witn his gun. uu me night ot April 21. 1808. about 11 o'clock, a number of men came to tho house of Mrs. Mary Shackelford, at Perry, and insisted on entering. Mrs. Shackel ford's son George, a young man of twenty two, proceeded to open the door, when ho shot and instantly killed on tho threshold. A younger son, Albert Shack elford, seized a rifle, and firing into the crowd, caused them to ileo. At daylight in tho morning the body or Edward 8. Jackson, one of tho mob, was found near tho house. The body of tho man was taken away shortly after sunriso by John Bazzel, ex-rebel Captain, and said to bo a leader ot tno mob. Mr. A. Weatherford. under oath, said disloyal men in the county say they will not allow a Union man to live there, neither will they allow a loyal man to dis pose of his stock. After leaving Mofllit- town I proceeded to Gatesville, Coryell county, where Mrs. Erzenish Schoonover's statement was taken, on tho 24th of May, as ionows, viz: inai nt auout u o clock p. m., on the 23d of April, a crowd of men came to her father's house in Bell county, about three miles south of Perry, and called Mr. Benjamin Schoonovcr and his two sons. George and Peter out of tho house ; six men then entered nnd searched the place, after which they went out and urea several snots at tho Schoonovers. killing the old mnn and his son Gcorgo. reicr was nrea at, out escaped. On tho 25th of May the statement of Wm. v. Allen, Oounty Judge of Coryell county, was taken nt Gatesville, and is ns follows: That on tuo 1st ot May. L. II, Dial camo Into the town of Gatesville in search of his brother-in-law. W. H. Leo. Judge Allen says that he acted in a suspi cious manner and I locked him up. No complaint was entered against Mr. Dial, nor were mo proceedings or tho examina tion entered upon tho docket. His con finement was matlc in an informal and illegal manner. On tho same night the unfortunate man was taken out of jail and hung to a tree by a mob supposed to bo tho Ku-Klux. All tho information that could bo obtained in regard to W. II. Lee, was that he was seen about ten miles south of Gatesville on the day beforo Dial was arrested, and on the next day his horse and saddlo were found on tho Leon river. He was next seen about eight miles north of Gatesville in his shirt and drawers with his revolver in his hand. Sheriff Hammock had possession of Dial s and Leo s horses, d:c. , the Lieuten ant went to his house for tho purpose of recovering tno property lor jurs. uial, when the Sheriff said ho had sold Lee's horse for $15 currency, by order of Judgo & nen, and tnat jJiai s horse had strayed oil somewhere. It appeared from what tho Lieutenant could learn from tho freed man, that Leo was shot and murdered while on horseback, and that the Sheriff's son had gone to Kansas with Dial s hor.se. The following is the exact language of tho report : Judge Allen and Sheriff' Hammock were both very much alarmed at tho questiona 1 asked them, and tried every way to clear themselves It is my opinion that tho Judgo is a dupo and Hammock (whom I have known over a year and always con sidered a murderous villian), was a willing assistant in the murders in Coryell county He is a riotousrebel, and lied to mo several times while giving his statement. David Sessums was chased from the lower part of Bell county to Coryell coun ty, where he was killed and thrown over a precipico near James' Mills, on tho Leon river. The families of both these men have tied from that part of tho State, and no particulars could bo had. It was also re ported to mo that a man named Dullard had been killed, but, the family having felt, I could get nothing ilchnito. All ot tho men killed by tho mob arc charged with being horse thieves, but I could not find a man who could say a word against them or charge them with any un lawful acts. John Baz7.cl, said to be the leader of tho mob, was very loud in his denunciation ol tho murdered men, und tho only thing that he could say against them was thut they had killed his dog, which I after wards ascertained was pursuing tho par ties when killed, while on the other hand. Jackson, who was killed at Shrxkelford's house, was leading the horse stolen from Mr. Dial a few days before ; thU horse was afterwards branded in Jackson h brand and while iu Bell county 1 found Buzel riding him and wearing Jackson's revolv cr. Iulsn saw a revolver in the possession of one of tho Bnzel's sons answering the description of W. H. Lee's revolver, as given to mo by his Bister. It had tho initials W. II. Ii- cut on tho handle. Bazzel accounted for this, saying ha pur chased it of a man having those initials. There appears to bo a regularly organ ized band In Bell county for the opprcswion and extermination of tto Ui4on vkuitat. Bv referring to the statement of Judgo 1 Allen It will bo observed that thee words are erased, viz: "John Barr, tho ltevenue Collector, Informs mo that the friends of Jackson said that it would tako six o( theso horse-thieves to pay for Jackson." Tho Judgo is positive that this was said, but would not swear to it, or allow It to bo known that ho or Barr had mentioned the subject, for fear of being mobbed by tho parly ; and thus it was with everybody witli whom I conversed they ore in such dread of this mob that It was with the greatest difficulty that I could get any facts whatever. From all that I could learn, it Is very evident that the rebels in Bell county have determined to kill or drive every loyal Union man from tho county. This tlley arc doing every day, and nfter they get rid of the men, they seizo their stock, or whatever they can "lay their hands on, so that instead of killing horse thieves, they provo to bo thieves and murderers themselves. Impudence. Oct at Columbus, In Ohio, lives a littlo, weazen, dried up looking politician, named Joe G . Ho Is tho most insignificant looking specimen of humanity ono could meet in a month, but smart ns a steel-trap, and any one who takes him for a fool will find himself sadly deceived, lie is notori ous for fiirnisliiiiir the finest specimen of cool Impudence of any man in Ohio. Tlio following anecdote, illustrative of this trait of his character, Is told of him : Some years ago. being in Philadelphia, he received an introduction to a promi nent divine of that city. Tlio reverend gentleman invited Joe to attend his church on a certain Sunday, which invitation was accepted. 1 hey entered tho sacred editiee together. It was one of the first churches of" the city, and its members wero fashion able and aristocratic in the extreme. Tho minister put Joe into nn elaborately fur nished pew, well to tho front.

A Sharp Teller. The Syracuse (N. Y.) Courier gives tho following account of tho neat manner in which a bank teller ot that city so cured tho arrest of a counterfeit bond operator : Between the hours of 13 and 1 o'clock, Saturday afternoon, a stranger called at tho Salt Springs Bank, in this city, nnd presented a United States 7.30 bond (one thousand dollars) to the teller, Mr. John W. Truesdell and desired to exchange it for currency, and the premium which It was entitled to. JHr. Truesdell, as soon as ho saw it, knew it to bo a counterfeit, and thought ho would cause, a delay in the negotiation for tlio bond, and havo the scoundrel arrested. Thero was no ono present with the teller but a littlo boy, and to get linn to go altera ponce omcer with out exciting tho suspicion of his wary cus tomer, was a very delicate task, indeed, but, as the sequel will show, Mr. Truosdell's tactics worked admirably. Tho stranger wanted to know what tho bond was worth. The teller replied that ho " believed it was quoted at 110, which wouiu make mo bond worth eleven hundred dollars." Tho stranger seemed quite anxious to closo tho bargain, whereupon the teller remarked, "I'll look in the l'oxt and sec what 7.30s aro quoted at, at. the sanio timo turning to tho boy and inquired, " Where s tho rest, havo you seen any tiling of it?" and watching his opportu nity, ho whispered to tho lad, "go for a po liceman as quick as you can," aud then in a loud voice told tho boy to run out and get a iW. It was evident that tho stranger begun to think it was not all O. K. with him, for ho requested Mr. Truesdell to let him see tho bond again, as he wished to make a nolo of tho date of issue, etc This kind of nonsense wouldn't go down with tho teller, who knew that if ho got it iu his ihmuchmou again, ho would bo off iifttinter. So he very kindly examined the bond and gave liim the dale, as desired, und at the wine lime he took Irom the drawer a Urgu pile of bank notes, and said, "I'll give vou f 1,100 for tho bond, and take tho chances as to what the quotations may be iu the j ott. Ihis Kccined to have tlio desired effect, and tho stranger readily ugrml to the proposition. The reader can rest assured that Mr. Truesdell, for onco in his life, whs very slow while counting the money and placing it in $100 packages. About this timo a citizen c&nio into the baui winhiug to draw ott boh)u mnx-y ou Iti personal check. The teller Informed him "thut hU account with tho bank was In a bad shape, and ho would bo obliged to look It over before letting him have the money." Of courso the cltliren was highly Inflig nattt, and was Invited behind tho counter to examine account for himself, and while doing so Mr. Truesdell whispered to him not to leave the bank, ns ho was going to havo that stranger arrested for attempting to pass counterfeit United State bond. The citizen then saw through tho ruso adopted by the teller to keep him thero. Just then tho boy entered, not with the Post, but two healthy policemen, who took the stranger tn charge. He says his name Is George Camcrou, and hail from Windsor. Canada West, Cameron came here Friday night, and registered his name at the Globe Hotel as John Cameron. On searching him, 3,800 In good money was found in his possession, which the officers think is tho result of other ales made elsewhere. i all Grant and His Friends. QnxxT Is in nothing more acceptable than In his knowledge of character. No great military leader has ever had moro devoted friends among his associates and subor dinates. Thero aro no voluminous letters on file In the department of complaining, either of his civil superiors or military comrades. When ho had to coustiro or dismiss it was dono without passion or parade. Ho never stood on punctilio while commanding a strict and instant obedience. 1I parted from few of those with whom ho began his exanipled career. Tho friend of Governor Yates and Mr. E. B. ashburno at the beginning of war. he is their friend now. All his West Point companions speak well of him ; and those who served with him in Mexico remember him with respect. Though ho had hard ships to endure during the rebellion, and envies to encounter, aud enmities to sur mount, few words of recrimination havo fallen from him. Even the Blair family, who havo scolded everybody through four years of their bizarre polities, have not at tacked him. All his Generals gather around him like brothers ; and tliore Is not ono of the Corporal's guard of Brigadiers ho havo made a sort of commercial en gagement to vote against him, that does not mako a point to reserve a record of compliments to urant. Ut all tho public men in tlie country, tho only one that ever tried to get Grant into a personal quarrel, is Andrew Johnson, nnd this ho did after long nnd insidious effort to get him into his toils. But A. J. laded in this as com pletely as when ho undertook to restore the rebellion. Philadelphia iVfiw. m iu I High-Heeled Shoes. L AD1K8, do you remember how hard it was for you to becomo accustomed to wearing high-heeled shoes how they threw you forward, squeezing your poor toes down to the extreme ends of your shoes, making them acho horribly, and ensuring you a good crop of corns f Don't you remem ber that, after you had worn them nn hour or two, tho cords of your legs felt as though they wero stretched to their utmost tension, nnd thero was such a trembling weakness iu tho small of your back you could hardly stand that thcro was a luintness lelt, a sort ot an " all-gono-ncss " nt tho pit of tho stomach, nnd, last. but not least, a racking headache ? Did you nttributo all theso most distress ing symptoms to tlio wearing of high heelod shoes T I dare affirm you did not. Theso symptoms woro off after a while ; you became nccustgmod to tho allocs, and now they don't hurt you at all. They don't f You aro greatly mistaken, my dear friends. Tho evil is there Just tho saino, but Nature has ceased her efforts to teach you tho error of your ways. Your toes havo grown numb and insensible to pinching. Tho muscles aro stretched out, as they aro no longer painful, but are, nevertheless, unnatural; and, should tho high-heels go out of stylo, you will find it equally hard to wear shoes without heels, because Naturo must then mnko an effort to resume her normal conditions. Just consider for a moment tho obsurdi ty of the thing. Tho foot is so construct ed as to toucli tho floor from too to heel, except a nnrrow strip upon tho inner sido of it. Instead of making a shoe to fit tho foot, wo mako a shoo that compels tho foot to fit itself to it, at a fearful cost of good temper and even health iteelf. They arc dangerous, too. Havo you never no ticed how apt you are to trip at slight ob structions, and how easily your unklo is turned and sprained how frequently tlio heel of your boot is caught in the stair carpet, and you ore in imminent peril of falling front tho top to tho bottom of the stairs? All theso mishaps aro clearly at tributable to high-heeled shoes. I nm quite willing you should make martyrs of yourselves, if you choose j but I protest against tho cruelty and wicked ness of putting them upon our children, even upon babies of six months old, und compelling them to learn to wulk in them. Tho muscles of their little legs are never properly developed, thus tempting girls to resort to tho pitiful cheat of false calves. I JENNIE T. HAZEN. Uniform of the "Tanners." The Ogdcnsburg Journal says : ' ' Several Republican papers notico tho organization of tho 1 aimers in this city, but do not seem to comprehend exactly what sort of nu urgauizuuun it rcany is. i or the in formation of all, we would say that the 'Tanners, as organized here, is a Repub lican club, for tho purpose of greater effi ciency in the present campaign. It is similar to the old ' Wide Awakes ' of 1800. The uniform adopted is silver bronzed enameled cloth, capo and cap, leather apron and ' Wido Awike ' torch. Nearly i wo uunureu are already enrolled here. The name of "Tanners' has been adopted ns most appropriate, from tho fact that General Grant commenced his liio as a tanner, nnd that ho learned tho business so well that ho was ablo to tan uio wiioio oaten oi rebels who tdtik up arms to destroy tho country. A similar organization has been started at Chicago, and promises to bo immensely popular. Every good livo Ucpuhlicun community should havo an organization of tho 'Tan ners. m Anecdotes of Colfax.

It was the day but one beforo Colfax was to start on his Rocky Mountain trln. Colfax replied: "It la impossible, lr; niv timo is engaged," " What kind of a play is this American Cousin, Colfax?" nsked the President Mr. Colfax mild it was just the thing to anmwd with and niado forgetful of one h eiirew. "Then." said Lincoln, "hero is a littlo message i want you to carry to tho miners Let me read it to you." And while thev waited t tlm nniru. door, Lincoln read to Colfax his last com position In this world, and then placed It ins sine coat pocket "Goodbye!" said Lincoln. "I'll tolo graph you nt San Francisco." That night. Colfax, rolnr home from n visit to tlio l'ostinnster General, who lived, believe, In tho Speaker's present resi donee, passed by tho Metropolitan Hotel. Seeing a crowd there, he hurried by, as Is his wont when thero are indications of quarrel ; but a man cried : " Colfax !" Tho Speaker stopped. "Tho President has been murdered,' said the man. Th Speaker laughed In his face. " Why, I left hhn," ho said, " not moro than nn hour ngo." "Well, sir I I was In tho thoatro myscir, and saw him shot." At t ho word " theatre " Colfax saw It all. He hailed a cabman and was driven rapi idly to tho White House. Thero ho dis missed tho carriage. Ringing the bell, the potter said that thero was no doubt that tho President was murdered, but his body had not come home. Tho Speaker walked with Senator Conness down to tho littlo brick house where Mr. Lincoln lay dying, and being admitted, stood by tho martyr till daylight. Soon after, tho lii'o of Lin coln expired. Tills accident links Mr. Colfax to Lin coln as closely ns Grant, nnd both were prouaniy nearest tlio Emancipators thoughts when he received t he disappoint ed actor's bullet. Tom Taylor is a pleas ing but not extraordinary dramatist ; the American Cousin, however, by reason of its association wiHi Lincoln's dei.th, will probably keep the stage ns long as tho mock drama in Hamlet. It belongs to his tory now, nnd not to literature! When Colfax saw Lincoln so shortly beforo his murder, ho was nceompnnied, I believe, by Representative Howard. Tho topto ot conversation was Lincoln's ro- chiding ol his permission for tho Legisla ture ol Virginia to assemble. As recon struction is now being fully consummated, may refer to thl''.

They talked together till Stanton sweat through his sum, ami moistened ins pocket handkor- cuiei wuu mo perspiration of hishico, Lincoln, therefore, said to Colfax: "Stauton says I havo been behaving wrong, Colfax !

S. Grant I regard as ono of the most remarkable men of our country. Without nspirlng to bo a genius, or p- scssing those characteristics which iuv pres. ono forcibly at first sight, his sterllnff kgood sense, calm judgment and persisten of purpose more than rompensnto ior those dashing, brilliant qualities which aro apt to captivate at a first glanco. To know and appreciate General Grant fully, on ought to bn a member of his military family. Though possessing a remarkable reticence n far m military operation aro concerned, he is frank and affable, con vpmi wi'll nnd li!.q a iiccnlliirlv retentive memory. When not oppressed With the cares of his position, he is very fond of talking, telling anecdotes, etc. His purity character is unlinpoachaMe, nnd hi patriotism of tho most exalted klnd. llo generous to a fault, humane and true; mil a steadfast friend to those whom bo -deems worthy of his confidence, ho can bo relied upon in case of emergency.

A rapid thinker and a ready writer, fertile in his reourcc and untiring In his exertions, ho possesses those rliarnctnriNtli'S which forcibly im press you at first sight.

As ho wns ono day passing into tho house, ho was accosted by a very littlo boy, who asked him if ho wimted any sauce, meaning vegetables. Tho doctor Inquired If such a tiny thing was a market man. "No, sir, ray father is," was tho prompt answer. The doctor said " Bl'intr mo Boius Burnishes," and passedhito tl nouse. sent nog out tno uivrmco. mil io moments tlio child 'returned, bringino; back part of tho change. The doctor told him ho was welcome to it ; but tho child would not tako il back, saying bis father would blamohiin. Such strange manners in a child attracted his attention, and ho began to examine tho boy attentively. Ho was evidently poor ; his jacket wns pieced, nnd patched with every kind of cloth, and his trowsers darned with so many colors that it was difficult to tell tho original fabric, scrupulously neat and clean withal. Tho bov verv ouiellv endured tho BtTtitlnv of tho doctor, while bidding him nt nrm'a length uud examining his face. At last hu said : " You seem a nico littlo boy.

Tho first impulse of tlio doctor was to laugh immoderately ; but tho imperturba ble gravity of tlio littlo thing rather sobered him, as ho recalled, too, his former conversation, and he vowed he never felt so perplexed in his lile. At tno timo ho felt ho needed no addition to the family. "Did your father consent to your coin ing?" ho asked. " Yes sir. "What did ho sny?"
