Tub Omaha correspondent ot the Chi cago Republican, under dato of Juno 2(5, gives tlio following account of a Into ro mantic tilTtiir : Apropos of just nothing at all, I have a rich incident to relate, which lately tran spired in an Eastern city, though some of the parties are now hero. Mr. McL , resident In D , was a stockbroker of only moderate means His family consisted of himself and his daughter, a young lady of eighteen sum mers, itachcl was beautiful and accom plished, was gentle in her manners, com panionable al ways and unto all, and hence, had troops of friends. Every acquaintance was a friend. Hut there was one who was more than a friend to her friend, lover, brother, and all that one may be to another Hobert L , an accountaat in a shipping-house, and a very estiinablo young man, though not in accumulated dollars and cents. Having been frequently thrown into Rachel's society, he learned her true worth, and had in time come to appreciate her accordingly, which means to love and respect her with his whole heart. And Hubert's devotion was repaid by a full and free bestowal of tho young lady's ardent affections. And their troth was plighted in tho midst of surroundings which prog nosticated a prosperous and happy future for them. Yet among their first experiences an unexpected obstruction was encountered, which disturbed tho hitherto smooth How of tho course of true lovo. This obstacle was of no lesser magnitude than a father's stern disapprobation. Hubert had ap proached Mr. McL. in a manly way, and said, " I love your daughter, sir, and I be lieve she reciprocates my affection. And I have obtained permission to respectfully suo for your favor and benediction on our union." " And so you have her decision in your favor r And I know nothing of it I You arc a dishonest, plotting scamp, young man 1 You insult mo by this shallow pre tense of consulting my wishes," replied the old gentleman, with great warmth. " I beg your pardon, sir, for surely I meant no disrespect toward you. But I I could not approach you on tho subject until I had discovered tho state of tho young lady's mind " " Gammon 1 She docs not know what her mind is. Sho has no mind. But enough of this. The future of my daugh ter is properly provided for. And I warn you, that all you have to do is to go back to your desk, and como here no more until you arc well rid of that folly. My daugh ter shall never marry a tramping actor. And thus Hobert was dismissed. Had ho presented himself there with tho for tune equal to that of Howell G , the result of tho interview would have been very different. But Howell wiu rich and Hobert was not. Henco Rachel's father favored the former, and decided that his daughter should accept him. Time had been when she rather cn courged his attentions titan otherwise. But tiiat was before her acquaintance with Hobert, and it was all past, and forever past, now. This was the first difference that had ever occurred between Mr. McL and his daughter, yet it was a broad one. He remonstrated, argued, commanded. Robert was a worthless scamp, he held, and hav ing for several years devoted his life to the stage, he would not long be content to adhere to business. But arguments were unavailing. Rachel had unbounded confi dence in her lover. She conscientiously believed sho was justified in clinging unto him. Howell G was not her choice, and sho was determined not to accept his hand merely for the sake of the money which it grosped, in any event. The weeks went rapidly by. Rachel's father relaxed not one jot of his firmness of purpose His quick eye detected indi cations which led him to mstituto a close watch over his daughter's actions. And this vigilance was ere long rewarded by the discovery of an arrangement by which Rachel and Hobert hoped to put the ques tion which concerned them so deeply be yond tho reach of a doubt or a fear. Of course he defeated that plan in its incipi enoy. The anxious futhcr now saw tho neces sity of a closer watchfulness than it was possible for him to institute, " My dear," ho said to his daughter, ono morning at tho breakfast table, "I am thinking of sending for ono of your aunts to come and visit a few months with us. Don't you think it would make it pleasant cr for both o'f us T" "Indeed I know it will, and I am very glal you wish it. How soon shall you in vito her to coinef" Right away, if I do at all," replied tho parent, who thought he detected a deep interest in the question. " You did not say which of my aunts you would invite Perhaps it will be both." " No, one at a time. Which do you suggest." Rachel reflected a moment. It struck her fancy Unit in this matter ho would act us ho had douo in every other caso of late contrary to her suggestion, taking it for granted that she had a purposo in the sug gestion averse to his will, which he would then bo enabled to defeat Therefore sho answered. " Please invito aunt Margaret, father." " Well, well, I'll think of it, replied tho old gentlemen. That very samo day, to Rachel's extreme satisfaction, he wroto to her aunt Julia, with a pressing invitation to spend three months with them. Aunt Julia, she was sure, would espouse her cause, which aunt Margaret in all probability would not do. Her father as readily could have perceived tho samo fact, had he been acting on any other prin ciple than that of stem opposition. In duo course of timo aunt Julia came. Alter some w ecks had passed, Mr. McL began to ler that the lukowarmness which, in spito of the manifested in his cause, was indicative of a state oi aintirs oi wmcn ne was la iir 1..K. .1 .....I Yl.,1 iioruncu. iuuk jhitiuti auu Atotiurt wete iu close correspondence ho greatly feared.

" Mvdear." ho said to Rachel one morn ing, " 1 am going away on tho I): 10 train, on a short business tour to N. A. and L." Indeed ! How long shall you bo away, father t" Rachel asked. "I can't positively say. Until to-morrow right, at least, and possibly until the middle of the day after." " How very much I should liko to go wnn you. He reflected a luouw lit, then replied gravely: "Not this time, my dear ; w will make a trip soon for pleasure, and nothing else." A short time before the hour at which her father had said he was to depart, and when ha was supposed to be in Lis room, JUchol, much to Iter utoaMiment, eplod is all of the I ing at he at VOL.

She softly withdrew without being dis covered, and stored the st ran co event in her mind. Shortly after Mr. McL left tho house, with tho identical traveling bag wood and nape' ln nana, a communica tion passed from Rachel to Robert, and ere long they were together, comparing conclusions and laying plans. About v ociock oi mat same evening, the deep shadows of tho trees in Mr. 's garden, stood the solitary figure a man. For several hours he had been that position, and yet he moved not, nor manifested the least impatience. Sec ! At last he moves, bends forward to listen, peering eagerly through tho dark ness. Lie hears some person approaching from the rear of tho premises, not alone; the path which he is watching, but straight across the ground. As the person approaches nearer, there light enough outside the shadow of his retreat to show him that it is a man, a policeman! He trembles with fear now, whereas ho was overflowing with exulta tion a brief moment before. The guardian of the night, as if knowing alKiut this solitary watcher, walks straight to tho spot where he stands. "Hallo, here I you fellow I" says Mr. Policeman. ' What are you doing here, on these pro mises " tho other retorts. "That's for you to answer. Come out there, so that I can see who you arc." Saying which the officer took hold of watcher and pulled him out in the walk. A man in the garb of a laborer stood before him. " Who are yon, anyhow " he asked. "I'm Mr. McL 's gardener," was the trembling reply. " Well, why didn't you say so at first ? Whcro is Mr. McL " " He went to N. A. tins morning." " And what were you doing here, at this hour of tho night ?" " Watching for a young fellow, by mas ter's order." " What young fellow ? Robert L ?" " Yes. What do you know of him f" the pretended gardener inquired with sudden eagerness. " Oh, not much. 1 m after him lor lorg ing a marriage-license to-day." "For Gods sake! to marry my mv dau my master's daughter I" " w ny, you are greatly exencu obout it. Mayba you wanted to marry her," added the police oillcer snccringly. "Wo, no, but her lather will bo terribly put out about it. Whcro is tho lellow? Let me get hold of him." " You are sure ho hasn't come here since dark?" " Very sure." " Then I can find him. Come with me ; you can help me." " But I must go in and sec if my my young lady is here." " Well, I know she's here so como on, say," urged tho officer. Together they passed out on tho street, and walked two squares, whcro tho po lice officer paused. A hack was stand ing besido the curbstone, but no driver was near. " Get in hero." said tho oillcer. annroach- the vehicle, " and I will take the box outside and drive. Wo can't walk fast enough." The man hesitated somewhat, but on sec ond thought entered the hack, and tho oillcer closed tho doer. The latter then mounted the driver's seat, and drove rapidly away. After travcrsim? a counle of miles ho drew rein the end of an obscure alley and alighted. nun ucruauuui nvu uiiumca, uaiui como back," he said to the inside passen ger, then turned and disappeared in tho alley. Ho was cone, and Mr. McL . in the disguise of a laborer, had not recognized Robert L- in the disguise of a police officer. The old gentlemen waited vcrr im patiently. Five minutes passed, ten, fif teen minutes. Then, fear getting tho ad vantage, ho cot out on the navement to look about him. Scarcely had he alighted when a man hurriedly approached in com pany with a genuine police officer, and caused his arrest, accused of stealing the hack and team. In vain lie remonstrated, and told his improbablo story. Ho was niarcncu away to the station-houso (, m tupposed). Stung well nigh to distraction with mortification, he resolved to adhere to his disguise as long as possible, and with that view gave in his nane as Georgo Maginn. After being left alone in a small room which he believed to be a cell in the station-houso, a man who called himself a magistrate, camo to him bearing in one hand a lamp which gave a miserable flick er of light, and in the other a folded paper. " My dear sir," ho said to tho wretched an. " I have by a strange accident dis covered your real character, and know who you are. This is an unlortunate affair ; but if you wish to evade a keener mortification, Just sign this bond for your appearance if necessary, and I pledge you my nonor tnat me tiling snail never be looked into. Sign it for form's sake, and you shall never hero of it again, Mr. Mc L ." With trembling hand the old gentleman signed the paper without glanc ing at its contents. There was not light enougn to see tho woras. I ho paper was nothing but a certificate attached to a marriage contract between Mr. Robert ana miss uachel McL . The disguised stock-broker was set tit liberty, but he did not return to his home until the close of the following day, when presented himself as just returning from his Journey to N. A. Rachel wel comed him with unusual ardor, yet each naci a secret wnicn was closely guurded. She was no longer Miss Rachel, but Mrs. , Robert s wedded wile. That fact did not transpire, however. for a week thereafter. Then Mr. McL sensibly succumbed, the wedding was publiclyK-elebrated, and harmony reigned last. But not a word was said about tho events of thai night, when tho old gentleman was away at N. A. lie had his ideas on the subject, but did not give them utterance. Robert L was tho recipient of a handsome dividend at the hand of his father-in-law, and a few weeks since he re moved to this city with his bride, and here ho will engage in business. ' Josh Billings' Essa Onto Hogs. Hogs generally aro quadrupid. The extreme length of their antiquity has ne er been fully discovered j they ex isted a long timo beforo tho flood, and her existed sum timo since. There is a irreat deal uv internal revenue in a hog ; there ain't much more waste iu uiem than in an oyster. Even their tales can be worked up intew whissels. Hogs are giod, i.tiiet borders ; they al- wusealwliat is set beforo mi. and don't " iiioium questions. Ibey never her any diyuc but tho measles, and they never hev that but once once seems to satisfy 'em. ' There is a great menny breeds amongst them. Some are aclosecorporaslmn breed, and agin some are more apart, like a hemlock Slab. They Ubcd to he a breed in New Enir land a few years ago which they called the slripttd hog breed ; this breed was in high repute with the landlords; almost ev'ry Uvern keeper had one which ho used to bliow travelers, and brag on huu. tfuma are fuU la tho bee, liie a town clock, and some r.ro as long and lean as cow-catcher with a steel-pointed nose onto them. They kan all ruto well ; a hog which can't rutc woll lies been made In vain. Tlicy are a short lived animal, and generally die as soon as they get fat. The hog can be larnt a great rr.cnny cunning thing, such as hlsting tho front gate off from its hingen, tipping over the swill barrels, and finding a hole in the fence tew git into a cornfield ; but thar atnt cny length to their memory, it awful hard work for them to find the same hole tew git out at, cspeshallr if you arc anv ways anxious they should. llogs arc very contrary, and seldom drivo well the samo way you arc going; they drive most tho contrary way. This has never been fully explained, but speaks volumes for tho hog. How will the Soldiers Vote. TrrnoronorT tho war for tho Union, the party which received tho vote of every opponent of that war every ono who deemed it a war of invasion and agcrcs sion on the part of tho North stoutly claimed tho rank and file of our volunteer 'Boys in Blue," as recruited from its ranks, and devoted to its principles. A majority of tho officers, it asserted, might be upholders of tho " Lincoln despotism," but the men without shoulder-straps were Democrats, as their votes would prove. " Then," we suggested, " let us unite In so altering our laws, and our Constitutions, too, where that shall bo necessary, as to enable every citizen who, during the war, shall bo necessarily absent from home whether in camp or hospital, as a soldier of tho Union, to vote as thouirh he were at home." Not ono sinirlo Democratic Legislature cliwed with this proposition. New Jersey, iuuniua uim Illinois tuosu lsciuocrauc Legislatures in 18G2 ; so their soldiers were not allowed to vote for Presidunt in 1804. Nearly every Republican State, with Ken tucky and Maryland, then ruled by ear nest Unionists, enabled their soldiers to vote in the field. Gen. Mct'lcllan was the Democratic nominco for President He long commanded the largest of our armies, uud was for a timo General in-Chief j he studied to ingratiate himself with his sol diers, was kind to, and popular with, tbem. If he could not securo their votes, no other man ot nis party could. In this State tho soldiers' votes wcro so cast that no one could say how they voted in most States it was otherwise. Hero is the aggregate vote of the soldiers, in every State from which we havo returns : States. Lincoln. MeClellan. Malno lthode Island..

Missouri and Colorado soldiers voted at previous elections almost all Re publicanbut not distinctively for Presi dent in '04. The soldiers of Pennsylvania. Ohio. Iowa, California, and Wisconsin voted likewise in li'J, as did most of them m 03. with results substantially identical with tnose exuibitca in tno loregoing taulo of the vote cast in '04. Tho soldiers of several States who had not yet been mustered out of service when the elections for 1805 occurred, respect ively voted again, with results substan tially like the foregoing. In no year of the war was tho Republican vote loss than three-fourths of all that cast by volunteers in service. Such being tho recorded facts, wo sub mit that the pretense of getting up a Con vention of Union soldiers to oppose tho election of Grant and Colfax surpasses all recognized bounds of partisan imposture. Not that there are no good soldiers who dislike and oppose them we know there are such, but they aro scarce as white blackbirds. The bulk of tho soldier vote against Grant will be cast by Confederate, not Union soldiers by the men whom he defeated, captured, and paroled, and who have personal reasons or preturring such antagonists as Buell, Franklin, Fitz John r oner ana Mccieiian. If Robert E. Leo could bo induced to unite in the anti-Grant call and preside over the Convention when assembled, he would give it respectability and force ; but a Convention of Union soldiers to oppose Gen. Grant is too broad a Joke for the sea son. It was wise to hold it in this bounty- jumping city, where all sorts of meetings can be got up to order n me proper appli ances aro used ; but tho honorably dis charged Union volunteers aro almost solid for Grant, as tho returns of next Novem ber will prove. . A Convention in 1787 of Revolutionary soldiers to oppose tho elec tion of General Washington to the Presi dency, or of defenders of Now Orleans in 1838 to detcat tho election ot uid Hickory, would not have been more preposterous than is tho attempt in 1808 to muster an army of Union soldiers in opposition to tho election of General Grant. New York Tribune. mam How to Sleep in Church. Assuming that it is a duly, let us con sider the manner of performing it. Like all other Christian practices there ought to be uniformity in the manner. First It is an improper manner of performing this duty to nod, and for the plain reason that the worshiper attracts too much attention. We aro everywhere taught to avoid ostentatious display in our worship. Tho Pharisees wcro con demned for praying at corners of the street, that they might bo seen of men. On the !samc principle, the nodding wor shiper is condemned, for he is making too public a display of his devotions. Second Nor is it proper to snore iu tho performance of this duty partly for the foregoing reasons ; but mainly because it is a direct infraction of the golden rule. Suppose, for instance, that your next door neighbor in asleep j by your snoring he will be disturbed, urobahlv awakened. This is not doing unto others as you would they should do to you. Third It is wrong to injure one's health while offering worship ; and all Ehysicians admit that to sleep with the ead thrown back and the month wido open is liablo to produce sore throat and hoarseness. Besides, flics sometimes get into the mouth on such occasions and by their injurious explorations tickle the deli cate membranes and cause horrible ster nutations and coughing, which is very in jurious t ) health. Fourth To sleep w ith head resting on the arms of the worshiper, and the fuee buried up in the cuffs of the cout, is the most improper way of oll'ering a sleep worship. First, because it U also injuri ous to health, and, mainly, because it is'a direct violation of tho Scriptures which command us to let our light so shino that men may profit by our example. In this case it is impossible to know whether the ChrUtiuu worshiper is asleep or awake. It is a positive case of liikewarmness; neither the one thing nor the other. Ixiectcd.

WHAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS DONE DURING EIGHT YEARS OF WAR AND STRIFE TO PRESERVE THE UNION, MAINTAIN THE NATIONAL CREDIT, AND PAY THE DEBT WITHOUT EXCESSIVE TAXATION is ; to it, On tho 1st of July, in th House of Representatives, Mr. Blaino, of Maine, in a steoch on the- Appropriation bill, said : Wo havo entered, Mr. Chairman, non a new fiscal year, and the last appropria tion bill to provide for its expenditures has been reported and is now beforo the House. The occasion seems a fit ono for a brief survey of our financial situation and for a pertinent answer to the many misrepre sentations so Industriously set afloat in regard to governmental expenditures. A very labored attempt has been made throughout the country by certain parties and partisans to create the Impression that the expenditures of this Congress arc on a scale of heedless and reckless extrava gance. I proposo to show that such is not the fact, but that, on the contrary, tho ex penditures aro made with far more regard to economy than distinguished the last Democratic administration that was in power in this country. Tho ques tion is ono of figures and not of argu ment, and hence 1 proceed at once to the figures. It is important at tho outset, to a clear understanding and clear comparison of government expenditures at tho present time and tho period immediately preced ing the war, to distinguish .between t hose expenditures which were tho inevitable conscqucuco of tho rebellion, and there fore unavoidable, and those which may be to a certain extent controlled by tho dis cretion and fidelity of Congress. Of those expenditures which arc tho direct out growth of the rebellion, I count the inter est on tho war debt and tho pensions and bounties to soldiers and sailors. These are expenditures which arc not discretion ary, but arc imperatively demanded, unless tho nation is prepared on the one hand to defraud its creditors, or on tho other to turn its back on tho brave men who risked everything that the republic might sur vive. Tho annual interest on tho public debt amounts to one hundred and twenty-nino million six hundred and seventy-eight thousand seventy-eight dollars ond fifty cents. The pension-roll for tho year will be thirty million threo huudrcd and fifty thousand dollars, and the bounties due and payable will require about thirty million dollars. These three items, which are not discretionary, amount to tho largo aggre gate of nearly one hundred aud ninety million dollars, well nigh two-thirds of our total outlay for the fiscal year upon which we have just entered. The fact that so largo a proportion of our expendi ture is the result of tho war, and is una voidable unless wo rcpudiato our obli- fations to our public creditors and our eroic soldiers, cannot be too often re peated or too thoroughly impressed on the public mind ; for it is idle to denounce these expenditures as extravagant unless wo aro prepared to withhold them ; and wnocver proposes to wituiioiu mem pro poses thereby to put tho nation at tho samo time under the doubly disgraceful stigma of repudiation and ingratitude. If tho Democratic party chooses to assume that possition it is welcome to all tho glory oi it. For tho ordinary expenditures of Gov ernment for the fiscal year which has just begun the appropriations are as follows: Executive, lcivlntivu, judicial, cin . bracing all department nalurlui nnd expounds f 17, IxO.OtlO 00 For tho army ;,0S1 .Oia.00 For tho navy 17,5nO,(KKM'0 We.t rolnt Military Academy mn.tniO.OO Consular and diplomatic service.... 1,&KM'M.(0 Post Office department tl,W).ni0.0(l Indian Bureau, treaties, &c li, NX), (muni ltlvera and harbora 4.;iI.(k.I Collecting the rcvoniio V,MU9,UU0.U0 Sundry civil expenditure connected with the various departments 0,030,000.00 Miscellaneous expenses of all kindti, incoming cost 01 certain punnc buildings throughout the country, expenses of reconstrnetlon, ex uenxos of closing tip Freeduion's bureau. Ac 0.OU0.GO0.00 Dellinuucios of various kinds la tho different appropriations 2,5W,000.00 Making a total of tl0t),81S,447.00 I differ in some items from tho recent statement of tho Honorable Chairman of Ways and Means, for I think ho included in tho expenses of this year a deficiency of thirteen million dollars resulting from the Indian war of 1807, which amount was appropriated and spent lust year, and has no proper connection whatever with the expenditures of the current fiscal year. And he also includes, incorrectly, I think, some twenty-four million appropriations overlapping from tho year which has closed to tho present. I say incorrectly, because this amount will be offset by a similar amount which overlaps from this year to tho next, about tho same amount going over each year, and this from neces sity owing to me moae or disbursement. I have also inado the amount for bounties ten millions less than tho Chairman esti mates, because a large proportion which he includes in this year will necessarily be paid in tho ensuing year, when it is hoped the wholo matter will be closed, tho last soldier honorably paid off and the Treas ury relieved from further obligation in that direction. Adding together these ordinary expen ditures, us I have above, the sum total is found to be ono hundred and six million eight hundred and eighteen thousand four hundred and forty-seven dollars. If Con gress can be accused of extravagance, tho accusation must be made good on these figures, or clso abandoned, for the other expenditures, as I have already repeated, lie without tho pale of Congressiouul dis cretion or control. A clear estimuto oi tho character of these expenditures may be gathered by comparing them with tho outlays incurred under the last Democratic administration. For example, in 1 80 7-58 thejsamo class of expenses in Buchanan's administration were over seventy million dollars in gold, whereas tho one hundred and six million eight hundred and eighteen thousand four hundred and forty-seven dollars above named are in paper. It must be observed, moreover, that in 1857-88 the population of this country was under thirty millions, whereas to-day it is well nigh forty millions. Adding forty per cent, premium ou gold, to bring the expenditures of the last two eras to the same standard, and we find tho outlays of Buchanan were at the rate of over ninety eight millions in paper to-day. To this add one third fur increase of population, and we rind the Buchanau expenditures, adjusted to the scale of to-Juy, would amount to ono hundred and thirty mil lion dollars for the same items that we are paying less than oue hundred and seven millions. And in this calculation I have said nothing about tho increased military and naval force of tho present day, which adds immeusLly to tho account iu favor of present economy. This calculation, staled In these general terms, is fur more striking and suggestive when you como to examine details. Tho army, for instance, cost during tho four years of Buchanan's administration, by the official statement of the Treasury De partment, which I hold in my hand, the large aggregate of H(i,:i07,575.55, making an average of well nigh twenty-two mil lions each year in gold. And at that time the army confuted in all ol uineteen regi ments ; so that each regiment cost coutui erahly over a million each year in gold. The army at present contains sixty regi ments, aud yet the whole appropriation asked for by General Grant amouuts to little more than thirty tlin e millions, a trine more than half a million per regi ment each year in paper. In other words, the army under the pt-aco establishment ot a Democratic administration Immediately preceding tho war exist per regiment largely more in gold than the army now coats per rrgimont in paper under the peaco establishment as administered by General Grant. Tho samo sonic of ex penditure indulged in under tho adminis tration of Buchanan would make our present army cost over seventy millions In gold or a hundred millions In paper; and until the latter figure Is exceeded the Dem ocratic partisans of Buchanan can havo no ground to charge that army expenses aro extravagant. When wo look at "the actual amount spent for legitimate army expenses, we sec good ground for the high compliment bestowed by rrcoident John son, when, a few months since, ho pub licly pronouueed "General Grant's Judi cious economy as the direct cause of sav ing many millions to the Treasury." With General Grant's election to the Presidency and the final pacification of the Southern States, our army will at once bo reduced and the expenditures of tho War Depart ment will bo brought to a point so incon siderable as no longer to be felt ns a bur den to the tax pnyer. Tho comparison in regard to naval ex penditures at the two periods I havo named are equally sugirestive and striking. For the four years of Buchanan's admin istration the navy, by the official record, cost fifty-two millions six hundred and forty-five thousand nine hundred and ninety-eight dollars and elghty nlno cents, showing an average of more than thir teen millions ner annum in cold coin. With a much larger navy, and with the disadvantage ol paper money and high prices, our appropriations this year nro a tiille under eighteen millions. Taking tho difference in tho size of tho navy at the two periods, and tho disparity bet ween gold and paper, ami we should bo author ized, if we followed the Buchanan stand ard of expenditure, in appropriating well nigh forty millions for the year's service. These facts are certainly s'nggostivc and instructive. In our Post-Ofllco expenditures, as com pared with those of tho Democratic rrpimt, the difference is, if anything, more striking than ln the relativo expenses of tho army and navy. Besides using up all tho jiostal receipts, tho Post-Olllcc Department tor tho three last years of Buchanan's adminis tration made drafts on tho treasury to tho amount of over flvo millions a year, in ono year running up to nearly seven millions. During tho wholo time tho Republicans havo been in power, tho drafts on tho Treasury for tho support of the postal service have not averaged two million dol lars per annum, and witli this moderate expenditure wo havo been enabled to carry on the lmmenso mail service in tho interior of the continent and to the shores of tho Pacific, through all our remote Ter ritories and sparsely peopled sections, and havo also been ablo to maintain a superb line of mail Bteamcrs from San Francisco to Hong Kong, and from New York to Rio Janeiro, none of which extraordinary enterprises and expenditures were levied on the department during Buchanan's ad ministration. These comparisons might bo quite inde finitely continued, exhibiting in each item tho samo result, and demonstrating with mathematical certainty that when wo tako into account the vast incrcaso of popula tion and tho rapid and unprecedented de velopment of our country during the time tho Republican party has been in power, and when we take into further account tho fact that we have been all the whilo sub lectcd as a necessity of the war to tho dis advantage of high prices resulting from paper money ; taking, I say, these facts into account, I assert and defy contradic tion that largo as our expenditures havo necessarily been, they havo yet been on a scale 01 economy and ndeiuy quite un known during the last Democratic admin istration that afflicted tho country. And I assert further, and I call both political friend and foe to the witness stand in sup port 01 my declaration, tnat wnencver and wherever General Grant has been able to control governmental expenditure, econo my, integrity, fidelity, and rigid retrench ment and reduction havo been the unvary ing result. Considering further, Mr. Chairman, that whilo the Republican party has been pro viding the means for theso expenditures, they have been at the same timo effecting immense reductions in the public debt and continually and largely reducing taxation. Within the three years that have elapsed since tho war closed and tho army muster ed out, we have reduced tho public debt between two and three hundred million dollars, and at each session of Congress, whilo this reduction of the debt was going on, we have taken oil' millions upon mil lions of taxation from the productive in dustry of the nation. At tho first session of the Thirty-ninth Congress, the first that convened after tho close of the war, taxes wcro removed that had the preceding year yielded a revenue of sixty million dollars, und at tho second session of the same Congress forty-one millions more of taxes were promptly repealed. The For tieth Congress has not been behind tho Thirty-ninth in this respect, for wo have already repealed taxes that last year gavo us a reventio of ninety millions. Aud to day the taxes of tho Federal Government are so wisely adjusted, and collected from such few sources that no man feels them burdensome, oppressive or exacting. De magogues may misrepresent and partisans may assail, but the people know and feel that to-day the taxes levied by the Federal Government are not an oppression to tho individual and not a hindrance to the de velopment of tho Industrial resources of the land. The history of the Republican party, Mr. Chairman, is indeed a proud record. Inheriting a bankrupt Treasury, a dishon ored credit, and a gigantic rebellion from tho traitorous administration which pre ceded their advent to power in 1801, the Republicans heroically and successfully grappled with and conquered all these obstacles to tho life and progress of the nation. They replenished tho Treasury ; they redeemed our credit; they sulxlued the mightiest rebellion that ever confront ed civil power sinco governments were instituted among men; they struck tho shackles from four millions of human beings, and gavo them every civil right under tho Constitution and laws. And while accomplishing these herculean tasks, the Republican party administered the government so wisely that prosperity has been all the time abroad in the land great business enterprises have been under taken and successfully prosecuted ; facto ries have been built ; the forest subdued ; farms brought under cultivation ; naviga ble rivers improved ; thousands of miles of railway constructed ; tho continent spanned by telegraph wires; tho two oceans well nigh connected by a Mud of iron : the emigrants protected on the re motest frontier ; Territories carved out of the wilderness domain ; and new Stales of promise and power added to the national Union. What other party in the history of this country ever confronted such difficulties f What other party ever gained such victo ries ? But great as its achievements havo been, its work is not yet finished. Out of the fierce conflicts of Iho recent past, in deed still raging, order aud harmony, con ciliation and friendship, are yet to be evoked ; not, indeed, by unwise conces sion and timid compromise, but by that firm mliiy which is based on Right, and under tho eldership of one, who, so terri bly earnest iu war, is yet to day the em bodiment of peace, the conservator of publio jilctiae, the hope of the loyal million I nSTSee advertisement of J.

Mort of our renders will doubtless re member the f xplooion of the steamer Mag nolia, on tho Oliio river, somo ten miles abovo Cincinnati, in March last. Mention was made, at the tune, or ttie supposeu ia tal injuries received by Charles H. Lewis ("fcm yuad '), ex local 01 1110 lousing Vrooi-tul, who was on his way to accept a situation on the Mayville (Ky.) HtUlrJin. Being now, after a lapse of more than three months, partially ablo to resume his duties, ho thus writes up an account of his accident for tho icAjioiiiint .' "When I bought my ticket, I asked the clerk If the Magnolia was considered a safe boat. Ho looked at mo with a half sneer ing, half pitying expression, and replied by inquiring if I had ever traveled much. " ' Well, no not abovo tho average.' " ' Then you'll learn something by and by,' he continued. " I did. Wm seated In tho cabin, be tween an cx Colonel of a Georgia regiment and a Cincinnati pork dealer, and we were all talking over the Impeachment matter. My fellow passengers soou became heated aud angry. They were cursing Congress and the President across my head each one as he felt and I was looking for a muss. Their angry talk soon collected a crowd. I had Just got up from my chair to keep clear of tho coming fracas when I heard a yell of agony, and beforo you could have counted three, up through the cabin, and almost under our feet, came a huge, Jagged mass of Iron. For tin instant thereafter I was con scious of every thing going on. I saw the cabin roof lifted up," heard tho angry hiss of steam, tho crashing of timbers, and a cry from the injured and frightened pas sengers that will never bo forgotten. Then I was lifted from my feet; I felt an intense pain In tho back of my head, and a biting, stinging sensation over my entire body. Sixteen days afterward I awoko In tho Commercial Hospital, at Cincinnati. I knew that I was badly hurt, but could not remember how or when I was injured. "As afterward ascertained, I was blown out of the cabin into tho river. When tho explosion occurred, the steamer was lust rounding tho bend abovo California, hugging pretty closu to the Ohio shore to avoid tho heavy current. I must havo taken a jump of at least two hundred feet, as I was picked up close to the bank. Tho survivors were conveyed down to the city on a tug, and here comes tho only joke 1 can discover in tho wholo affair. " From some cause or other, my face was turned to as deep a black as any negro ever wore, and 1 was accordingly treated as one. A dead cart was sent down from tho hos pital, and sido by side with two wounded darkies, lying on a matrcBS, I was carried up. Tho mistukc was not discovered until the surgeons commenced shaving the hair oil' to get at my broken skull. I was sup- Iioscd, for the first two days, to be a deck land, but a telegram from my wife to tho editor of tho knquircr, who camo and hunted mo up, soon set tho matter right. " On awaking iu tho hospital, I inquired how badly I was hurt. Tho only answer I received was to keep still.' Consider ing that I could movo neither hand nor foot, I regarded this advice as entirely thrown away. But it did not tako mo long to find out that, first, thero was an uncoin fortublo 'air hole ' in tho back of my head ; second, the sight entirely gono from my left optic, and tho skin peeled off my faco and carB; third, that I had been 'steamed,' or rather cooked, from head to heel, including both arms ; and lastly, that tho doctors had lust pulled mo through a severo attack of pneumonia. Remained in tho hospital twenty-nino days, and then concluded to go home. Hud not yet been able to leave my lied, but, accompanied by my brother-in-law, C. 11. Rullison, Esq , who had nursed me from tho third day, I mado tho jouruey. "Getting homo my friends had been looking to sco mo como in a coffin my wounds had all filled up with ' proud flesh.' This, of course, had to bo burned out driving mo crazy for a night nnd a day and compelling mo to uso a solution of blue vitriol twico a day for forty days. So you can form a slight idea of the pain and suffering, and how much 'yo local can endure without becoming 'dead matter.' "Now, after a lapse of almost ono hun dred days, I find myself onco more about, but condemned to wear tho savago marks of tho steam-fiend to my gravo. A bald spot where tho iron missile crushed my skull, a 1 piebald' eye, a faco that resem bles a beet, and over my arms, body and limbs are scars that resemble great slices of fresh beef laid upon tho skin. But after all, I am yet alive and getting ready to once more pursue the ' itemizing' busi ness, which you know is vastly better than being fished out of tho Ohio some torpid day, with no Coroner handy for an in quest." a " A Match. TnrcitB is a story going tho rounds ot the boudoirs of Paris, about a handsome man about fifty years of age, but well f (reserved, and with only ono infirmity 10 had a gluss eyo. It was a misfortune ; but things are so well managed now-a-duys, that no one no ticed it. Ono evening, having no other engage ment, he accepted an invitation to a recep tion at Madame Saint Ildcfonsc do Piero vceville's. My hero went to tho ball, passed a charming evening, and devoted himself exclusively to a beautiful young blonde, who attracted tho attention of all the company. Shall I confess it? Ho full so in lovo with the young lady at first sight that he made her an offer on the spot. After a few inslants of reflection, and somo preliminaries relating to tho con tract, the marrisgo was arranged and cel ebrated in due time. When ho entered tho nuptial chamber he extinguished thu light. A glass of water was on the table by tho bedside ; ho dropped his eyo into it. Tho next morning as soon as it was light, our handsome bridegroom reached forth his arm, seized the cherished orb, and replaced it in its orbit. As soon as he was dressed ho went to see a friend in town. On seeing him, his friend gavo a cry of surprise. " Perhaps you find me changed, " said our friend. " It is my happiness. Think of it, my friend, I am married to tho most delicious blonde such hair I such eyes 1" " Blue eyes r" "Of course, as sho is blonde. If you could only see her eyes !" " I sco ono of them now, and if your memory fails you, you have only to look in tho glass to see her eye before you I" Tho bridegroom trembled. Ho rushed to thu mirror. O horrors ! his right eye was black and full of fire, but his left eyo was blue, lan guishing and lender In tho glass of water were two eyes, but they did not belong to tho same person. The newly married couple separated, without vilifying each other, but not without changing eyes. A Hint for Boys. Tub cashier c.f one of our leading banks resigned somo tiuiu since, aud the paying teller was immediately elected to till hi place. Ho was quite a young man, and was promoted over the heads of those who bad been in the bank many years in subordinate positions. Tho secret of tho promotion is well worth knowing. Tho new cashier lives aoiuo tulles out of tho City. Ho mitred, the ImuK when rtuilo young. Ho resolved to msko himself uso nil. Living farthest away, ho was the first at his post In tho morning. Having the farthest to go, ho was the last to leave. He never was afraid to work, and never hesitated to lend a hand when his own duties wet'o done. Others would go out to restaurants and hotels for their lunch. Ho brought his with him, aud ate it in a littlo closet. For his own pleasure he never left the bank during business hours. any of the clerks wanted to go away ho was always ready to take their place. Ho could always bo found, and was prompt at any call. 1 1 is snare time was devoted to an intelligent comprehension or ins ii.isiness. As paying-teller ho was very popular, lie was never snappish or unifciiticmanly. Growling, erumblinir. unreasonable customers could not irritate him. lie overstayed his timo to atvnm modulo men who were belated with their cheeks. As cashier, ho is tho same genial, agreeable, prompt ollh-er that ho was In subordinate life. Meu disappointed in their discounts take a refusal from the cashier with a better spirit than they do an accommodation from somo men. lie still keeps tip his habits of close attention to business, nnd takes his frugal lunch in his closet as he did when struggling for position. iV. )'. Ixtter. A Little Preaching, by Request. Wb have received from "Down Fast" a nolo from which wo make an extract. The writer says that thero is but little preaching" in his neighborhood, and that wnut there is relates rather to the meta physical quality of sin than tho actual forms which it usually takes. He there fore sends for a little hit of preaching the following: " My neighbor will not make his part of his fence sufficiently strong, ond his s'oek will therefore break over and damage my crops, lie heedlessly sets fire so that tho lire spreads and hums up my part of tho fence. He does not build the fenco so destroyed, as ho is lu duty bound to do ; yet lets his stock run iu tho opposito field, and they aro every now and then tres passtng'on my fields. Now tlio laws pro vide for a remedy by compelling him, if I bring suit, to make a legal feneo and re build the part lie so carelessly burnt. Now if I compel him, by suit at law, to do his duty, 1 mak an enemy. My property Is not safe, and in the end I would probably be the sull'ercr. I consider a dollar's worth of peace and good feeling with my ueiirh- bor worth a dollar, and a dollar's worth of justice obtained by compulsion, by and through the law, is generally dearly ob tained, costing two and often ten to get one, besides bad feelings, lasting sometimes through life. Is it my duty to bring suit for right when it will perhaps beget ma licious retaliation? What course does tho Scripture indicate? Oil, sir, you could not havo touched a topic that would thrill more hearts than this of ff ne?s! How simple tho topic seems I How littlo would an innocent stranger, riding through a rural district, lmagino fences arc instruments of injus tice, en gincs of oppressionr, causes of quar rel I l'Vuces not only separate estates, but divide families; they keep out cattle, but Introduco feuds, they protect land, but squander money in bitter litigations. To fill up tho wholo subject of fences with appropriate preaching, would retiulro a sermon as loug as an old-fashioned Puri tan discourse. In this particular case, wo do' not sco that much is left for us. The writer lias arirued his casu, and decided it rightly, reaee Is more precious than gold among neighbors. Don t yo to law, if you can nap tt. Somo men take medicine fr every pinch and qualm, ond aro never well. Somo mon take law for every littlo spito or right, and they never have any comfort of their lives. What I Shall a man irlvo un his richts? In a free country, a native-born Ameri can, and ho afraid to stand up for his rights? It is true, that men ought to ascertain clearly what are their rights; uud that they should see to it that, in tho main, they arc respected. But even this relates rather to such rights as involve a man's moral and civil standing. Cases may arise in which one should sacrifice his whole property, and his very life, rather thau yield a just and Important right. But In every such caso there must be a clear and unquestionable reason for such outlay. On the other hand, many of our rights aro not to be selllslily maintained they are to bo waived, yielded, given away, for the benefit of others. A man who keeps all his rights for his own uso is scliish and unlovely. Define and authenticate your rights and then, if you cau make men happier, uso them generously, and even forego them! A mother's whole life is made up of a series of giving up her rights for the heu cfit of her children. Is any other name more noble among men than that of mother? Yet, there may be cases in which a littlo Law will bo useful to a neighborhood. If somo strong and arrogant man domi neers until, by yielding to him, ho has come to think that ho can havo every thing his own way, it will be good for him und for tho whole neighborhood if some smart, stifl'-necked farmer will teach him lesson at law. If there be a mean and selfish naturo in a neighborhood, who makes it a rule to go Just as for ospeoplo will allow, and to filch and grasp whatever he can, it may bo a duly to put up a fence of tlio law around him. But, if a man is only careless aud slow, and negligent, and yet really does not in tend any harm, I think that I should mend tho fence myself beforo going to law. Coax him, talk to him as plainly as you write to me. It is difficult to vi'inrnjo a uiau who has the right ou his side; but where all tho right is on your side, you ought to be ublo to manage any liiua. Keep out of law ! It will squander more money than it will rave. It breaks down more fences than it puts in order. No better citizens live than lawyers. But. guiiuj to law Is next to going to a grog shop. hen a man begins, vou never know when ho will end. 11. W. Beechcr, If. Y. Le 'ijcr. m m Bridal Tests. How thankful our " well educated" young ladies of this day must feel that they do not livo among such a half-civil-, ied people as tho Nestorians must be, from the following account of one of their wedding customs : After the marriage ceremony has been performed, the wedding- party is taken in wagons from the church to tho house of tho bridegroom's parents. When the second wagon, iu which the bride is seated alone, reaches the gate opening into the yard in whidi the house is situated, it is halted, ami the bridegroom's mother comes to meet it, w ith u baby aud three suits of baby clothes in her arms. She throws the child and the clothes into the arms of the bride, who is required to undress and dress lhe baby three times in the presence of her mother in Kw, who watches every movement us nly a mother in law can watch a daughter in-law. If the newly made bride does not perform the operation to tho satisfaction of her severo judge, she is considered unlit for her new po.Mtion, tho wagon U 1 11 1 nt 1 around, aud the is t iki u back home for further instruction, ami the poor bridegroom b compelled to livo in single ble.v,eiliicHs until his wife hi educated up to thu proper standard.

T11 Washington correspondent of tho Cleveland fut.-r rcr-ntly called on i-x-Governor Yates, of Illinois, and rewired the following statement of Orant'a early military record : ' "Grant," said tho Governor, "camo down to Springfield dressed in common working clothes. Ho lookeo Tory much as he docs now, ordinary, taciturn, unpre tentious. When he presented himratlf to me, he said ; " Governor, the United Statet educated me; 1 want to be of uso to hef now that she Is ln dancer.'" Yates asked him what ho wished to havo. ' ' ' " Any place w hero I can bo nscrul," Bald Grant ; " it don't matter much." Tho system at that time was to commis sion only olllcors w ho had raised compa nies. Votes, hurried and overrun, tohl Grant to look in again. After a few daya Grant, whoso money hod nearly run out paving hou'l board, dropped in again, hat In hand, and asked Yates If anything had turned up. ' ' "Can yon write military orders?" asked the Governor. ' ' "Yes." " Well, I'll give you a desk in my office, and you'll find plenty to do." "there," said Yates, "Grant worked away satisfactorily, though my hands wcro full and even-thing was more or less dhv organised. I had no time to obserra him, and ho was never forward to spoak. Af tcrwurd I put him in the Adjutant Gen eral's olllce, and although we did not know it particularly at tho time, we havo fonml since that ho laid tho foundation thero of what Is now, probably, tho best Adjutant General's olllce iu tho United States. Be foro tho war it w;is nothing. During all this timo Grant was seldom ln my mind. I had too much to do lo keep personal watch over every oillcer In tho State, aud did not look out particularly fcr tho Com ing Man. But Grant made no mistakes, and I saw that his West Point knowledge was useful to us. , Near by Springfield thero was a largo camp, termed Camp Yates, containing twenty thousand, perhaps. It was z source of annoyance to mo. I could not find any body to keep the men subject and sco that they wero mado clean, properly fed, and taught the germs of organization. I sent Grant out there, and pretty soon complaint ceased. Then I sent him on a tour to various camps through the State, but still I had no command to givo him under the arbitrary system of giving only thoso places who had raised organizations. Ho wont away, at last, to visit Covington. Kentucky, where his father lived. , I did not like lo sec our Illinois boys enter tho service of another Commonwealth, and I found a chance directly to displace a Colonel, or rather to send him to a differ ent command, and then I telegraphed to Grant: " Will you tako command of tho til regiment V Answer. "RICHARD YATES." Grant replied : "1 will. Start immediately. "U. S. GRANT." He arrived promptly ond took tho posi-' lion. Still, I hud no exalted expectations of him. He was not a brisk, nervous, at tractive man. His faco and liguro wero not so striking that anybody could pick him out of a troop, liko Saul, and he did not say enough to interest mc. Out of $2 Colonels thai I commissioned I thought it as probable that 281 of them would be come famous as Grant. Ho did ouo thing, however. v lilch I havo since thought was significant of his future good sense and enterprise. Ilia regiment was tho most demoralized ono ihat wo luiu in Illinois. It had become insubordinate and allowed to go to seed. Grant started tno process ol breaking It la by com- Selling it to march across tho Stttto of lissouri, and ho was tho first of our Col onels who hod economy and pluck enough to save us tho delay and cxpeuso 01 railway transportation in this manner. In thiB march he stopped straggling and orchard-robbing by a device original, good humored and efl'eetivo. Ho mado every straggler carry a fence-rail in line, and ns tho march itself was tolerably laborious, tho fence rail did its work, lie mado a fine fighting regiment of thoso men. After speaking on many other trivial matters, Governor Yates said, in conclu sion : " Hero worshipers will be disappointed In Grant. I don t toko it to be any stolid licss of mine that failed to perceive genius in him. Nobody else did. His genius is not ostentatious nor dramatic. It ia the genius of accomplishment that he has. When his work is done, there it is, and there is tho man, except for the work, or dinary os before. I don't make up for this error of perception by visiting tho Gene ral twico as much now os before. But iu tho light of his achievement, I feel tho samo confidence and satisfaction in him that all tho people feel. Tho Democrats feel it, too. He has no enemies in the Stato but political ones, and one or two personal ones, like M'Clernand. Wo will elect him with ease." m The Prince Imperial. An American traveler, who lately saw the Prince Imperial of Franco, says that he is an extremely amiable and interesting looking boy, with a wonderful air of not exactly intelligence, perhaps, so much as precocious manliness of bearing for his oge the natural cllect of his bringing up, aud of the way in which, of lato especially' ho has been forced, as it were, iuto pub lic notice.
