HOW I CAME TO GIVE HER AWAY. I was eoine to write a tele. When I en tered my study for that purpose I knew no more man you do wnat tne taie was to be about, or what sort or a tale it was to be, or now mucn copy - n would De desira ble to compress or eke it out into. I had worked up all the plots or subjects on my list, and had no one to begin with. For all that, I took my scat at the accustomed place, and meant to write a tale. I had a very urgent reason for meaning to do so on this especial night. A trouble had sud denly fallen upon me: nothing could remedy it ; nothing could cure my heart ache. But trouble multiplies its piercing shafts to an idle man ; so I, wounded and maimed, so to speak, went to my study with the full purpose of forcing myself to write something. Goodness knows what I might have perpetrated, or how many sensational incidents floated in the atmo sphere of my room, and presented them selves insinuatingly, one by one, only to be rejected. They had all been done be fore, better than I could do them. I wasn't great at sensation ; moreover, I was not quite sure that it would be right to add ever so small and obscure a contribution to that rabid style of literature. I felt that I couldn't make a man marry his grand mother by mistake, or show forth the de licious horrors of "14 people poisoned by a young and beautiful girl." I was ruminating in this undecided sort of way when my eye chanced to fall upon a picture on the wall, and in a moment I knew what it was I should write. An In cident from real life my own life ; that is to say, an incident in which I was con cerned. One objection, however, occurred to me ; the hero of my story might proba bly recognize his portrait, and " cut up rough" about it ; for the thing was of re cent occurence ; but, alter all, if I changed the names, I did not see that it could mat ter to him, even if he chanced to see it. Some short time ago, then, you must understand, I left town to pay a visit to the paternal mansion I ought to say maternal since my mother was a widow. I had been summoned thither by an ur gent appeal, and on an occasion of the greatest importance. My youngest sister was going to be married. Of course it is very wicked to have a favorite sister, but I confess the wickedness on my own part. I had a favorite sister, and this was the youngest Letty of whom I had heard .. that she was About to commit matrimony. -In the first place, I felt a little injured on the subject. I had been building a castle, in which my pet sister reigned queen, by my own fireside; and now that was knocked to pieces. In the next place, my conscience reproached me. I began to think that I ought to have managed to be more at home, seeing that my sisters were orphans, and my mother was a widow. They wore not penniless j they might even, I thought, bo considered catches by adventurous wolves on the look-out for prey j and there were many such adventurers prowling about the world, Ought I not, therefore, to have kept a closer guard over the sheepfold Y And then, women are so easily taken in 1 All these reflections made me uneasy, and when I got out at the small country station and found no one to meet me, though I had specified my train, 1 was not in an araiablu frame of mind. The " Send up your portmanty, sir, presently," of tlie porter only elicited a nod instead of the expected gratuity, which, to be sure, he would get all the same when his errand was done ; but that didn't matter. I was injured. They ought to have sent to meet me. They were all too much taken up with this fool ish affair to think of anything else. A nice, comfortable sort of time I was going to have of it ! " Never to let me know the man's name, nor what he is, nor any thing 1" I grumbled to myself, lashing up my grievance. "Never to give me a hint of it till the thing is settled, and the day ac tually fixed not, perhaps, beyond recall, though. If I see that he " And here I found myself in the act of repulsing a very old friend, a black and tan retriever, named by a wonderful anomally, Shepherd. He jumped upon me with a vociferous welcome, flung his paws on my shoulders, and whisked his tail in my face, as though he thought it was the nicest thing he could offer me as I stooped to uudo the fastening at the gate. " Down, Shepherd !" I cried. " You old simpleton, be quiet I What was the use to give you such a name as that, eh? You are but a false shepherd. Wolves have got in, Shop. What have you been about 1 " But Shepherd didn't care. He licked his chops, and slobbered at mo as affec tionately as if I had been praising him, Then I went up the drive, and saw my dear old mother at the drawing-room win dow, looking out for me. The sight of that good old face, smiling, and a little agitated, ought to have dissipated my ill humor, but it didn't do anything of the sort. It rather gave ire an additional stab. Letty always used to come out to meet me, and why didn't she do so now f It was too bad ; too early to cast oif her old friends indifferently, simply because a wolf had got into the fold, and meant to devour her. She did come to meet me at the door, however ; she kissed me just as heartily as if I had not been feeling cross, and put out, and injured. "They're all in tho drawing room," said Letty. "Come." I hesitated. Did "all" mean that the wolf was there ? I hoped not. " Who are all, Letty " I asked. " Mamma, and Caroline, and Dick," she replied. Dick was a juvenile brother of mine, and a pickio all Dicks are pickles who made an immenso pretense of being ab sorbed in study when I went in. When the salutations were over, an un easy silence fell npon us, as was natural under the circumstances, and we were driven to exchange idea concerning the weather. " Well," I sold at last. ' when is it to be?" s It was unnecessary for me to be more explicit i there was but one "it" for those infatuated people lust then. " On Thursday, said my mother. " Thursday 1" said I. " Why, to-day la Thursday, and I am a whole week too soon." ' You don't mean to grudge us week, James?" said my mother. To this speech I made no Immediate answer. "I Huppose it's rather a sudden affair," saldj, "a I never heard anything of it before r" " No it is not sudden," replied my mother. " You know I did tell you, when you spoke of wauling Letty with you, that I djdu't thiuk she would be avail able.'" "Did you?" saldl. "But I never thought why. What Is he?"(meanlDgthe wolf.)

" Yes, James," said my mother, quietly. ' A tenant farmer," added Letty. What were mv presentiments and for. bodings to such a state of affairs a this ? My mother seeing my face, hastened, to speak first. " He Is very nice," she said, " very nleo Indeed. You must remember that there are different sorts of farmers, and that none of them are altogether what they used to be." " I have seen a few of them." I said drllv.

" You had better see him before forming an opinion." " He wears drab unmentionables, with buttons like cheese plates," said the pickle. And you won't see anything in town so clean as his Sunday go-to-meeting smock frock." " At least," I said, " he is respectable of course. " Quite respectable," said my mother. " Has he anv " I'm afraid I was co- Ing to say h's. Sir John Coleridge's theory of secondary education had not yet come into practical operation ; and, if it had, I believe his list excludes tenant farmers. I remembered, however, the dishonor I should be doing to Letty's taste, and change the word. "Has he any money," I asked. My mother answered me with a queer, deprecating sort of smile and a nod ; and Dick stuck his elbows on the table and pulled a face at me. " Well Jim, I'll be shot if I knew what thorough paced cockney snob you were." This was very grand, and of course in dicated in the pickle the presence of noble sentiments ; but still a little money, though we know it to be the root of all evil, does come useful to a man, especially to a man about to be married. I don't think mv temper had Improved since I entered the house. I was dissatis fied, and showed it; and when Letty had called me a "savage old Jim," laughing all the time like an exasperating monkey. Bhe was, and had left the room, I re turned to tne charge. "What s the mans name, mother?" I asked. " I can't think why vou speak like that. james," says sne. "Jtlis name is Scott." "Stephen Scott, Yeoman," added Richard the fearless. " Well, I don't like it," said I. " I can't help saying that I don't like it. I can't help feeling that I stand in some sort of my father's place toward the girls. I wish had done my duty bettor." I felt considerably important and digni fied in saying this ; it seemed to add at least five years' weight to my standing amongst them. " I think, too, that I might have been told earlier," I continued. Then my mother looked up from a bit work which she had taken in her hand, and said quietly, " You see, it is settled now, James. I think perhaps It would be better to say no more about it ; but wait until you have seen Mr. Scott" " Of course I must, as things are," I re plied. "I think I won't stay here the week. I could come down again, you know." Of course this was overruled, and I con sented to stay. There was only one thing more which I felt bound to say, feeling rather dubious as to its effect. " Mother," said I, " if I don't approve, if he seems to me not a fit person, you know, you must not ask me to give Letty away." ' Very well, James," said Bhe. -I believe I must have made myself churlishly disagreeable during that visit. know that it was the most uncomfortable week I ever spent I refused to talk about Mr. Scott, as of course Letty would have liked mo to do. I believe she coaxed me out for walks on purpose ; but I always kept away from the subject, until one day, we were passing the Mahor house, I stopped to look at a splendid bay mare which a groom was exercising. Then we looked at the smooth green lawn, the rhodo dendrons, and the newly-kept drive up to the house. "Ah, Letty," said I, "now that's the sort of place that I ehould have liked for you." "Well," retorted Letty, "that was a farm-house once." " Once," said I ; " yes, there's all the difference. I can't think of you as a farmer's wife, and I won't try." " I read up all about cheeseraaking the other day," said Letty, demurely, " but it was in a very old book indeed, and the presses are different now. I don't think my arms would be strong enough for tho old-fashioned ones. Ana I'm very fond of little pigs." " Little pigs, indeed I" I exclaimed. "Where is the the farm, Letty ?" " Over there," she replied, nodding to ward the west. "But it's within riding distance. Mr. Scott will be here on Tues day. I dare say he will ride over with you next dav, and show it to you," " Indeed he won't," said I. "Well, but, James, you can't mean that you are going to cost me off," said Letty, coaxingly. "No, Letty," I replied; "only I can't approve " There, hush about that ?" cried Letty. You don't know a bit what you are talk ing of; and I give you notice, I shall tell Stephen every word you say about him." " As you please," said I. " Now I think it, however, I shan't be here on Tues day." " Not here !" said Letty. " No," said L "I've got some business do." "Where, James?" she asked. "At Liverpool," I replied. Letty considered a little, and when she turned to me there was a look of mischief her face that I did not understand. " Liverpool," she repeated. " Well, but you will be back on Tuesday night." " I shall, if my business is done," said I. "But it will be done," said Letty. "It must be done. Promise me that you will hack on Tuesday night, James. "What makes you wish itso very much?'' asked. It la sufficient that I do wish It," re plied Letty. Promise. If you are go B V ,?ut me bX and by, isn't it natural that I should wUb. to be with you now ?"

' I did find it possiblo, aa I knew before hand I should, but we none of us dislike to hold back under entreaty to make the thing entreated for more important I got my business over and went down the landing stage, and from there oa board the packet for Birkenhead. There were a good many passengers, and either got a slight push trom one of them, or else my foot struck against something on the deck ; anyhow, I stumbled awkwardly. never shall forget the supreme indiffer ence, the lazy strength of the action, which saved me from falling outright The gen tleman who perpetrated this action was half-Bitting, half-lounging against the side of the steamer, and the only portion of his body that moved was his right arm, which he flung back Indolently to set me upright again, Just as he might have turn ed over a II y that hail got on its bark. I turned and looked at him a tall, broad shouldered, well built fellow, a little sun burnt, with fair hair and a darker beard, and the laziest blue eyes I had ever socn, most unmistakably a gentleman, and, as I thought, most unmistakably a lazy gen tleman. I expressed my thanks, raising my hat, npon which he raised his, and murmured something inaudible, for ho was too lazy to speak or even to remove the cigar from his lips. I retreated a little, but kept myeye upon him secretly. Then a lady's bonnet came between us, and looking at that with some impatience, I was attracted toward its owner by tho blind fatuity with which she corrected her son, a lad of fifteen or six teen, for leaning over the side of the pack et and flinging pebbles out of his pocket into the water. The young gentleman himself evidently resented the slight upon his manhood, for ho leaned over farther still, and grew more recklessly daring in his movements at every rehuke. I think we were about halfway across the Mersey when this young gentleman received his punishment There was a sudden, sharp cry of terror from the lady, a rush toward the side, and then a shout echoed from mouth to mouth of " A man overboard." Many men were amongst the throng that rushed to the spot where the mother stood, but they only looked with helpless eyes after the unlucky lud. They could not swim, perhaps ; or, if they could, they knew how next to Impossible it would be to save him, and how fearful a risk to themselves the attempt would be. I say nothing of my own sensations. I was no swimmer, to begin with, and before I knew thoroughly what had happened. and the boy's danger, I had again caught sight of the lazy gentleman lounging on the boat side, lie had taken off his coat, hardly standing upright to do it; and, as my eye fell upon him, he threw himself over the side as cool y and with tho same air of lazy grace with which he had flung out bis arm when I stumbled. The next time I saw him he was In the wake of the steamer, her engine being re versed for stoppage, and his one arm sup- Eorted tho boy's head above water while e swam with the other. He seemed to have no intention of exhausting his won derful strength ; the very strokes with which he supported himself in the water had a look of lazy comfort ; and, if he did feel a little anxious as to the progress of the boat which was nearing him, he took care that no ono should discover it. The whole thing occupied but a few minutes. Indeed, it appeared to me as if the alarm had only just been raised, when I saw the boy delivered, dripping and peni tent, to his mother, and the luzv gentle man lounging in his old place. Ills cigar was in his mouth when he dropped into the river after the lad, and it was in his mouth when he came back. I think he must have had an idea that it was still alight, for ho tried it it would draw, took it from his lips, looked at it, muttered "Psha I it's wet," and tossed it away. Pre suming on his service to myself, I offered him my case. He took a cigar from it, and said " Thanks." I felt a foolish enthusi asm, which, perhaps, English gentlemen often feel, but seldom give way to. On this occasion, however, I did give way to it "I should like very much to shake hands with you," I said. "Willingly," responded the stranger, and the ceremony was perfonnod. i Kept near to nun wnen no landed, walked behind him up the floating class- covered pier, and through the toll-gate. I could nave traced him up the pier by the drops of salt water that trickled from his clothes. At the toll gate I lost him, and conjectured that he had probably gone into the "Monksferry" with his portman teau, to change his dress, and that I had seen the last of him. I was mistaken. Before I had well seated myself in the train, and seen my luggage labeled, he was walking up the platform in a different dress, carrying his own portmanteau and swinging it about as if it had been a child's toy. He came straight up to my carriage and got in ; I never saw him look round; I could not tell whether ho had seen me or not He seemed to fall natu rally and at once into the laziest of loung ing postures, and go to sleep with his eyes open; and he never stirred, so far as I could judge, until tho tram stopped at tho station for which I was bound, and I got out. Then he got out, too, but he wasn't in any hurry about it While the train moved on, and he saw me looking about for a porter to move my package a pack age in which Letty was interested to a safer place, ho took one hand out of his pocket, after his leisurely fashion, and put it under the cord. " Shall I move it?" said the lazy gentle man. "Will it do here, beside mine? I suppose they'll send it up to the Grange." lie never waited for an answer, but lift ed it as though it had been a bandbox, and then led the way out of the station, an un easy misgiving having begun to creep over me. " How the deuce how on earth do you know who I am ?" said I. " Likeness to your sister partly," was the laconic reply. " And you are " said I. ' Stephen Scott, at your service," he re plied. We were coming to an old fashioned stile, high and clumsy, as he said this, and the words were hardly out of his mouth before he stood on the other side, having taken the leap with his hands in his pock ets, and after the easy fashion of his jump into the river. " Upon my word," I said, " you are the most wonderful fellow I ever sw." He started a little, and waited for me while I got over in the usual manner. "Oh, tho stile, you mean?" said Mr. Scott " Well, it's an awful bore to climb stiles, you know, and a taan looks awk ward at it" But I was thinking, not very comforta bly, of that week at home, of all my dis agreeable speeches about this man, and moreover of tenant farmers in general, and my own ideas respecting them. Such as my thoughts were, he must have known them by instinct, for he stopped all at ence, and broke Into a short laugh. " Well, so I am a tenant farmer," said he. " Where's the harm ? I am a youngor son, with a younger son's portion, and a good bit of practical farming about me ; so I have taken the manor house you know it?" . I should think I did, rather, seeing that it was the very place I had told Letty I could have wished her to have. I made a mental vow to torture her for this trick, thatshe had practiced upon me, forgetting that I bad brought it upon myself by my superciliousness. ' It's the jolliest life a fellow can lead, in my opinion, 'said Mr. Scott "And, if you'll come down toward September, I'll show you some turnips, and some birds too. My landlord happens to be a relation as well as a landlord, and I'm to do my own pre serving." " Mr. Scott," I began, " I beg of you to believe that is, to accept my warmest" "All right !" he broke iu. "Say 'Stephen' will your and I'll say Jim.' It's less trouble." And there was the drive gate, and the house, and Laity's pretty lace at the win dow looking npon my discomfiture with demure enjoyment And hy-and-by, when I was beginning to recover myself little, there was my mother, tuning, with quiet malice in her voice, upon me. "do, after all, James," said she, "you uan to give her away 1" A "Solemn Key." Wr have received the following note from Dayton, Ohio: "The t'lnclnnatl f bmwrcMbae report of the speech of Hon. I). W. Voorheee at Terra Uaute, Indiana. In which he tars of Mr. Heymonr: ' He saved the army of the t'nlon al Gettysburg, and for it recolrod the personal thanks of Abraham Lincoln and Edwin M Stanton. This recorded fact la the solemn key to hi. whole conduct dnrlna; the war,' How true the above Is will yon please Inform A ltireaucAN t" Mr. Seymour was exactly as loyal and faithful a Union man as Mr. Voorheca. They were both what was significantly called Copperheads ; and nothing is more amusing than the attempt of those who denounced the war as fratricidal and Infa mous to prove that their candidate, Mr. Seymour supported It Tho facts are bo coming very familiar, but it is useful to consider them. Mr. Seymour was always an apologist for slavery and a defender of the policy of tho slaveholders. Wrhen they seceded because of the result of the election In I860, in which they took part, Mr. Sey mour assailed the party which had elected Mr. Lincoln as responsible because it had not yielded to the threats of the slave holders and permitted their policy to pre vail. And he stated in tho form o'f a ques tion that "successful coercion by the North is no less revolutionary than suc cessful secession by the South." This was a repetition of Buchanan's doctrine, sup plied by Jeremiah Black, that the Govern ment could not rightfully "coerce" a State. Mr. Seymour's whole Influence was directed to secure a compromise with rebels ; but the loyal people insisted that the rebellion should be suppressed at every cost ; and when the rebels began tho war they did not shrink. On the 28th of October, 1801, Mr. Sey mour made a speech which was a virtual justification of tho rebellion and condem nation of the Government, and in which he said that the Union should be sacri ficed rather than slavery. In September, 1802, President Liucolu issued his prepar atory proclamation of emanclpallon. There were signs of a reaction of public sentiment ngainst the war ; and recalling his words of the year before, and the fact that he had never spoken one word of en couragement to the soldiers or of sympa thy with the Government, the Democratic party nominated Mr. Seymour for Gov ernor. At least seventy five thousand voters were absent from the State in the field, of whom a vast majority were op posed to him. But notwithstanding this advantage, his party managers were afraid of trusting him upon a platform of un conditional submission to rebellion, and Judge Stryker and others persuaded him to make a speech at Brooklyn, which was the same kind of war speech that Richard O'Gorman made in the great Union Square meeting after the tiring upon Sum ter. Mr. Seymour was elected Governor, by the vote of the city of Now York, over General Wadsworth, who had a mojority of the votes in tho rest of the State. It was the hope and expectation of his party that he would embarass the national au thorities by his official action, and his ap pointment of John A. Green, one of the most notorious Copperheads, to a high military position in the State, greatly en couraged the peace faction. But the work that was logically and justly expected of Mr. Seymour was nothing less than a counter-revolution. Uis message In Janu ary, 1803, showed tho willing spirit, but the flesh was weak. Instead of recalling the New York regiments or taking some decisive steps of open hostility, Governor Seymour chose tho sufo path of destroying confidence in the Government, and there by paralyzing the national arm. The dark summer of 1803 found Lee marching into Pennsylvania. On the 15th of June, Secretary Stanton asked aid of Governor Seymour "to repel this inva sion" of the States of Pennsylvania and Maryland. The Governor sent the troops. On the 27th of Juno Secretary Stanton thanked him for his " energy, activity, and patriotism," and President Lincoln also thanked him. The latter further told him, through Mr. Thurlow Weed, that if he would use all his power to crush the rebel lion, a grateful people would make him President Mr. Weed, in recording this fact, adds: "I gave tho message of an enlightened and patriotic President to a metaphysically-muddled Governor, whose Secession and Copperhead proclivities and associations brought deserved reproach and destruction upon himself and his party." The simple truth is, that when the demand of the Government for troops was made upon him, Governor Seymour was suddenly compelled either to begin the counter-revolution by refusal, or to send the regiments. But, as the soldiers were not to "invade the South," but to defend a State from invasion, he found an excuse for avoiding a responsibility which he did not dare to assume. That his action belied his words and wishes, and disap pointed the ardeut men of his own party, is indisputable ; and that the expressions of the Secretary of War revealed the in tensity of his anxiety lest Governor Sey mour should act as he had always spoken, is no less unquestionable. Had the loyalty of every Governor been what Mr. Sey mour's was, the result of the war may be conceived. Governor Seymour lost no time, how ever, in showing his party friends that they need not suspect him of loyalty, and in furnishing a bitter commentary upon the " patriotism" that Secretary Stanton mentioned. The Secretary's note was written on the 27th of June. On the 4th of July, when the event of the great bat tle, for which tho New York troops had been summoned, was yet unknown when it was the instinct of every loyal and gen erous heart to cheer public confidence, and encourage the soldiers in the field, Governor Symour came to the city of New York to make a speech. Not only was the moment as critical as any during the war from the actual military situation, but because the draft had been found in dispensable. This was the measure of the Government which excited the most seri ous and threatening hostility that was manifested during the war. Should the draft be forcibly resisted, there seemed to be no escape from a universal convulsion. The city of New York was full of the bitter enemies of the Government and its measures. Most of the organized militia had been sent away by the Governor upon the requisition of the national authorities. There were but a very few United States troops at the posts near the city. New York was virtually without a military force in any extremity ; and of this fact, and of the feeling and character of a vast part of the population, Governor Seymour was especially aware. Deep gloom among the loyal, eager and angry hate among the disloyal, was the time ana this the place of the Governor's speech. Imagine what a man would have said to whom the cause and the country were dear. Hemember what thoroughly loyal citizens everywhere in the country felt that day I Imagine what Governor John A. Andrew of Massa chusetts would have said in such an hour and under such circumstances I His words would have been inspirations of hope, and faith, and lofty cheer. All good men, whose hearts and prayers were with Grant and his men at Yicksburg, with Mead and his men at Gettysburg, would have felt, as they listened, that whatever the issue of the battle, the cause, while such leaders aa Andrew remained, was unconquerable. Governor Seymour's speech was a taunt and a sneer. As if to make abject repent ance for sending the soldiers ho began la a strain of bitter derision. We were Eromlsed victories for to-day, said he, and istead of them coins the midnight cry of help from Pennsylvania. He proceed ed to paint the situation as hopelessly as he could, and alluding to the draft, warned the Government that the bloody doctrine of public necessity could be proclaimed by a mob as well as by a government The mob heard and applauded. It knew that the soldiers were absent, and that the police were few, however brave. It was sure of the secret sympathy of the Gover tnta aa Mil a aa .tat n A llnnlni siitti' M I Kai seed on the 4th of July, the Uovcrnor.on the 11th, went out of the State into New Jersey, and on the 13th the mob rose. On the 14th the Governor returned and ad dressed the rioters dripping with Innocent blood, say ing to them. "Let me assure vou that I am your friend;" and adding, that, " as a test of my friendship," ho had sent to Washington "to have this draft sus pended and stopped." OnThursday night i he militia and United States troops be gan to arrive, and tho riots were suppress ed. On the 8d of August the Governor wrote to the President urging the suapen sion of the draft, saying, threateningly, as if to suggest another mob, " the temper the people to-day you can readily learn." Horatio Seymour bitterly denounced the war; palliated the rebellion; denied the right of the Government to " coerce States;" discouraged enlistments; pro nounced for slavery rather than Union sneered at the "promised" victories; in stigated the riots; threateningly urged the suspension of the draft ; presided over the Chicago Convention that called the war a failure, and demanded submission of the Government, and by his wholo con duct so satisfied the rebels and Copper heads that they prayed for his success when again a candidate for Governor in 1804, and they have made him their candi date for President In 1808. On tho other hand, when Lee invaded Pennsylvania In 1803, and the national authorities asked aid to repel him, Governor Seymour sent the State regiments and was thanked. Whether this is saving the army at Gettys burg, and is "the solemn key" to his con duct during the war, our correspondent may now decide. Whether it is the story of a loyal American citizen the country has long ago decided. tfarptr't ll" k'y. m .

HT Senator Wilson addressed a large meeting at Worcester, Mass., tho other night In his eloquent peroration the Senator said the cause was one which man could take into his closet, and with open Bible and on bended knees, invoke God's blessing upon it, and such a cause would be sure to triumph and bless the land. tSTThe National InttUigencer says no man in tho country " has performed so many somersaults as the Radical candidate for the Presidency."

No; I am a square out-and-out Uiram Simpson' man, and work and talk for him every chance I get I'm a Grant Democrat, and believe there are enough lust such in this country to elect the staunch little man to the position I know he will adorn as he lias all others in wnicn ne nas Deen piocea, from the tanyard upwards."

The full grown worm is from an Inch to an inch and a half in length, about the thickness of an ordinary clay pipe stem, aud striped with black or dark brown and yellow. A nkw method of dressing wounds has recently been adopted In Belgium. A sheet of lead, one-fifth of an inch thick, is applied to tho injured limb, and made by pressure to assume lis shape.

The family retired to rest, but before he went to sleep the man who had committed the theft, thinking to outwit tho priest, cunningly cut oft an inch from his stick, firmly believing that it would by this means attain tho length of the others by tho next morning. The sticks were returned, and by comparing them tho priest was instantly able to pitch upon the offender, to his great surprise ami uismay.

A marine monster, which was captured off East port, Maine, recently, is thus de scribed by tho St. Croix Courier: " After being towed ashore, ho was found to meas ure thirty-five feet in length and seven feet across. His head is shaped like a bull frog's, and his skin resembles the hide of an elephant. It possesses two legs or paddles about five feet from the tail. Soon after It was caught, it was seen by Rev. H. A. Philbrick, L. L. Wadsworth, Esq., and others. It is to bo stuffed and exhibited, so that the curious will have an opportuni ty of seeing tills wonderful creature. Of course there are various conjectures as to the nature of the nondescript. Some think it a species of the shark, but the shape of its head, and the size of its mouth are op posed to the theory. Others think it is a whale, but it does not seem to possess the breathing apparatus of that denizen of the deep." How Shall the Debt be Paid? Tu e question to be answered la not who created the Uubt ; nor how tho debt waa created. The debt exist ; that every one knowa. How aball the debt be paid 1 the proper answer to Ullsq "ca tion la what every one wanla to know. The Democratic party point out the way to pay the debt. The Republican party point out the way not to pay It. This la eiactly the dill ere nee bciween the two partiee oa the debt question. CAlryftTO 7i4t The Republican party in its plattorm points out the best and most feasible way to pay the national debt Section 5 says that the national debt, contracted for the preservation of the Union, should be ex tended over a fair period for redemption. and it is tho duty of Congress to reduce the rate or interest thereon whenever it can be honestly done. Section 6 says that tne best way to diminisb our burden ot debt is to so improve our credit Jhat cap italists will loan us money at lower rates of interest than we now pay. Section 7 says that the government should be ad ministered with the strictest economy, and that the corruptions fostered by An drew Johnson call for radioal reform. Section 9 denounces all forms of repudia tion as a national crime, and declares that the national honor requires the payment of the debt according to the letter and spirit of the laws under which it was con tracted. In the fuce of these plain declarations, It requires considerable hardihood on the part of the moot mendacious and untruth ful partisan Journal to make the assertion that " the Republican party points out no way to pay the debt." By reduclug the rute or interest from six per cent, down to four and a half, which the Republicans confidently expect to ef fect, Id the event of the election of Grant and Colfax, there will be a saving of thir ty millions a year in gold, and this large sum a Republican administration will do vote to purchasing and cancelling bonds. The Republican administration will also devote every dollar of surplus revenue derived from taxation to the same purpose. Suppose the latter sum shall be thirty millions a year, which, added to the saving of Interest aforesaid, will make fund of sixty millions to bo applied in liquidation of the debt. When sixty mil lions of debt Is paid off, there will be three millions less Interest to pay the next year, and, Uiis iwtvlng can also be appropriate... to the sinking rami. In few years the sixty millions of annual payment will .woll n nn. hnnHrnl millions frOlTI tflO saving of Interest end the debt will q"j'ck lv melt away and disappear, Just as did tbo debt of the Revolution and of the second war with England. This la the Jtepumi can plan or paying the national debt. Now, what Is the method propose, by the Democratic party? The Tim Bays ite party "points out away."

An answer to It, howover, would be : That the national debt was caused by a rebellion of the Southern Democrats, who sought to de stroy tho Union, and that it is twice aa large as It would have been If the North ern Copperheads had not opened a " fir in toe rear" upon the Unionists, wno were enifaired In sunnresslnir the revolt of the Democratic insurgents.

Chicago Tribune. Then and Now. From the Toledo Blade. Knifon Bi.Anrc: Sometime aeo vou no ticed a communication in a Democratic paper, from a laborer, contrasting the prices of certain thlnirs in 1850 and 1808. and showing their relation to prices of. lanor in those yearn. This Is all very welt, and airainst that kind of argument it is not necessary to offer any other answer than a few shots from the same locker. I, too, have a chapter of contrasts to offer, and I select, as one of my points of comparison, the years embracing the winter of 1838-9, and the other, this year 1H0S. I select tho year 1838-9 because u is a central point or a term or about forty years preceding the Democratic re bellion, and the price of labor that year was about an average of the price for the wholo period. And. besides, the Demo cratic party was In tho full tide of success. Musuca with victory, carrying everything before it with a hfirh hand, and putting into successful practice thofovorito dogma of the party, " To tho victors belong the spoils. Martin Van Burcn was in tho midst or his Presidential term ; Wilson Shannon, of odorous memory, had been elected Governor of Ohio, and everything, from Dan to Beershcba, was as intensely Democratic as the most radical of tuo "unterrllled" could wish. Then, the wages of a common Inborcr was seventy-five cents per day, he board ing himself or fifty cents per day, the employer furnlshine board and many a day hath this deponent swung the scythe, and wrought in tho hay aud harvest Hclil, from "esrly morn till dewy eve," for fifty cents a day. Mechanics, then, oa now, obtained a little higher wages about a dollar a day. In 1838-30, a laboring man could buy a barrel of superfine flour for the labor of twelve to thirteen days ; in 1809-it will cost him the wages of five or six days. Tusn, he could buy a barrel of nices pork for the labor of thirty days : note, it will cost him fourteen days' Ubor. Then a dressed hog of 200 lbs. would cost him 21 days' labor; now ho must expend the wages of ten days to purchnso the same article. Tun the laboring man could buy a dress pattern for his wife, of eight yards of Mcrrimoc prints, for the labor of three days : note, in order to procure a pattern of the same kind of goods, a little larger, it is true, (our wives have grown since then) say twelve or fourteen yards, ho finds it necessary to invest the proceeds of tho labor of one whole day. O I the taxes, tho taxes! the bloated bondholders, and all the tribe of cormorants who have fas tened themselves upon our vitals, and are sucking the very life blood from our veins who shall deliver us from their terrible fangs? But, in 1839, one day's work would procure five Rounds of irood brown sugar, now he must bo content with twelve pounds. Iu 1838, one day's labor would purchase four pounds of loaf or crushed sugar ; now It will only purchase eleven pounds. Then one day's labor would purchase four pounds of Rio coffee, now it will buy but seven. Then the laborer could buy a pouna ana a nun oi tea tor tne labor or one day, or if he was very fastidious in hiB taste, and must have the best, ono day's lubor would buy him half a pound ; now the day's wages will only procure one pound of the one or two pounds of the other. Then one day's labor would pur chaso throe to six pounds of butter ; now It will buy but seven or eight pounds. Then a reasonably good suit of clothes would cost the labor oi about lorty days; now such a suit will cost fifteen. Then the labor of four days would purchase a pair ot good, substantial thick boots; now it will require three days to accomplish a like result Then the labor of eight days would suffice to purchase a pair of fine calf sewed boots ; now it will require six days. Then the labor of twelve days would buy a keg of lOd nails ; now they will cost two days and a halt In 1838 the laboring man paid no taxes. unless he had taxable property. But how is it now 1 Will some " black Republican, Lincoln hireling " answer? ANOTHER LABORER. Sham Deafness.
