We extract the following politl cul Decalogue from tho mutchless speech of Mr. Cox, of Ohio, ift.flfi llouio of Representatives Dec. 15. We tire the people who have set you in high places. Thou sii alt have no other source of power before you.-' Thou ahalt not make unto thee any graven image of ebony, before which to bow thyself, nor serve it. Thou slialt not take the name of liberty in vain; for thou slmlt not be held guiltless for such sacrilege upon persoual and constitutional freedom. Remember the days ol October and .November to keep them holy. Honor the Constitution and the Uuiou, it you would have your days long in the land. Thou Bhalt not kill in vcam geauco and in vain. . Tbou slialt not degrade the whito race by such intciruixturei as em ancipation will 'Aring. 1 hou shalt not steal, nor sutler the money ot the people to be sto len by the army of jobbers and con tractors. Thou shalt not bear falsd witness against thy noighbors, charging them falsely with disloyalty. . I hou shalt not covet thy neigh bor's servants, neither his man ser vant, nor his maid servant, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's, nor tax the people for their deliverance THE PUBLIC DEBT. A correspondent draws our at tention to the mountain ot public debt trttt is accumulating upon us a debt unparalleled in the world s history; for while the gigantic debt of other nations are the accumulai tions of centuries ours is almost the work of a day. In reference lo the bill before Congress, to issue bonds to tlio amount ot ono thousand mil Hons of dollars, our correspondent asks if we have thought tor a mo ment of tho maimitude of these fie ures. Wo know what a minute is an hpura day. When we utter these figures, we do not. know that a thousaud millions of minutes have not elapsed since the-birth of our Savior! and that a dollar for evory minute of time since the commence ment of the Christian Era would not suffice to pay a debt of one thou sand millions of dollars! Such are ! the gigantic proportions of a debt which this war ii heaping, upon us and our posterity, to be met only by repudiation or by grinding, tax ation. Enquirer. An Incident of Battle. i ''-.C.olooel. Hugh McNeil,' of the famous Bucktail' regiment, who was killed nt tb Dattle of Antietam, ui wie q ti;9;f0sfr,ip-ctmpliBbecl officers tn tfii Fsdcral service. ' A soldier relatei an exploit of his at bouth Mountain, which w worth recording. During the battle of South Mountain, the rebels held a very strong position. They weropotted in the mountain pass, and bad in' fan try on the heights on every side. Our men were compelled to carry the place by storm. The position seemed impregnable; large craggy rocks protected tho enemy on every side, while our men were exposed to a galling lire. A baud of rebels occupied the ledge on the extreme right, as tho colonel approached with a lew ot his tneiu The unseen torce poured a volley upon them. McNeil, on the inatant, gave the command : '1'our your fire upon those rocks.' . The Bucktails hesitated ; it was not an order that they had been accustomed to receive; they had always picked their men. 'Firo !' thundered the colonel ; 'I tell you to fire at thosn rocks !'. The men obeyed. For sonic time an irregular fire was kept up; the Bucktails sheltering themselves as best they could behind rocks and trees. On a sudden, McNeil caught sightpf two rebels peering through an opening m the works to get n aim. The eyes of the men followed their commander, and half a dozen jfVifl$f were leveled in that direction, f 'Wait a minute,' said the colonel, 'I will try my hand. Ihere is nothing like killing two birds with one stone.' Tho two rftbcls were not in line, but one stood a little distance back ot the other, while just in front of the foremojt was a slanting rock. Colonel McNeil seized a rifle, raised it, glanced a moment along the polished barrel ; a report fol lowed, and both the rebels disap peared. At that moment a loud cheer a little distance beyond rent the uir. 'All is right now,' cried the colo nel ,' charge the rascals.' the men sprang up among the rocks in an instant. The afirighted rebels turned to run, but encount ered another body of the Bucktails, and were obliged to surrender. Every one saw the object of the colonel's order, to fire at random among the rocks. Ho had sent the party around to their rear, and meant this to attract their attention. It was a perfect success. Tlie two rebels, by the opening in the ledge, were found there stiff and cold. Colonel McNeil's bullet had struck the slauting rock in front of them, glanced, and passed through both their heads. There it lay beside the J, flattened. ggJust after tho seven pickets died from the cold, the Presiilnnt Is reported to have said; "If the half-clad rebels can stand it, our boys can." But it seems our boys can't. God help them! Tub Pxeumatio Post. We learn from the Loudon Times that the system of conveying parcels In air tubos,' will soon bo ii, operation lor tho public. A pipe, 2tt. 9 in. nidi ameter, ha been laid from the ecu tral station of the London and North western Railway to the General Post-omce a distauco ct halt mile and the mails are to be de livered through this tube between the post-ofHco and tho railway. No compassion 13 felt for the author who denies sleep to himself to give it to his readers. The groves and woods are the musical academies of the singing birds. . If a woman doer not speak her secrets with her lips, she is cure tell them in her letters.. Her pen is sure to split. Marwaoks is Fkcdal Timh.- The law . of England was not ' ex actly similar to this, although suf ficiently barbarous to deserve the execrations of all who respect "the firivileges of woman. It was a ucrative mode of extortion, even so far as down to the days ot Chatles I, both with the crown and the inferior nobility, to sell their wards in marriage. This most barbarous custom gave to the lord of the manor the right of tender ing a husbaud to his female wards, while under age, whom they could not reject without forfeiting the value ot the marriage; that is without forfeiting at much as any one chose to ofler the guardian for such an alliance. And the larger tho property of the ward, thelarger was tho value of the marriage. Thus, our fair readers will perceive that in thoHe days of chivalry and honor, ot knightly feeling, and ro mantic generosity; when lances were set in the rest to uphold the beauty of an eyebrow or maintain the perfection of an ankle ; when the Queen of Love and Beauty presided over the tournament held in honor of the ladies; in those chlvalric times they were bought and sold like cattle, and men made blanks and prizes of them in the lottery of life. The Contests of an Ostrich's Stomach. The Lyons journals state that a few days back some ruffians succeeded in getting hold of the ostrich kept in the Pare de" la Tete d'Or, with a view ot strip ping it of its feathers. The poor bird was shortly afterwards found Ivinir on the ground in a dying state, having had ita neck almost dislocated by the miscreants. After its death, it was dissected by M. Rey, professor of the veterinary school of the city, who found the following strange articles in its second stomach: three clay tobacco pipes, quite whole, but having be come green : a xnue ,wiin a uruss handle 20 centimeters in length; twentyifive brass buttons of differ ent infantry regiments ; a ten-sous Diece. thirty-two soua and centimes, on most of whioh the effigy had been worn oft; about hfty bits ot brass, reduced by corrosiou to small triangles; fragments of watch chains; various bits of other metals; six large whole walnuts, and several fragments of a hawthorn walking sticK ; lastly, a piece oi iron wire, ..i i .i . r ! : ten centimeters in length, which had pierced the sides of the gizzard, was found imbedded in the.abdo- . . i men, ana does not seem v navo caused the creature auy pain. Curious Epitaph near Warwick. a to While we retted u rselves on horizontal monument which was elevated just enough to be a con ventent seat, I observed tha t one of the gravestones lay very close to the church, so cnnu tiuit the droppings of the ftive would fall upon it. It scenvjd m it uij umutu of that grave bad desired to cre under the church wall. On closer inspection, we found n almost illegible epitiph on the stoio, and witli difficulty made oui this forlorn vomo : "Poorly li "Oil. And pon ty died, Poorly biiriej, And lio one criad." It would be hard to compress the story of a cold and luckless life, dcuth, and burial into fewer words. or more impressive ones; at least we found them impressive, perhaps because wo had to -recreate the inscription by scraping away the lichens from the faintly, traced letters. The grave wi s on the shady and damp side of the church, endwise towards it, the head. stone being within about three feet the fonndatiou wall; so that, unless the poor man was a dwarf, he must have been doubled up to fit him into his final roeting place. Ex. A LUCKY LOSER. L'Ete of Ems relates the follow ing story: MA gentleman on emtering the reading rmnn of the Kuraul Touni a louis at the foot of a chair. Ne man was in tho room at the time, and the gentleman said to himself : 'This coin belongs to chance, and let chauce do what he likes with it,' and so he went iuto the play room ami threw it on the table. In three minutes utter the piece of gold hud become a rouleau, which in the twinkling of au eye had become In its turn several bank notes. The gentleman took them up, and returning to the reading room suw another gentleman look ing for something on the floor. What have you lost!' asked tho first. 'Oh, nothing but a twenty franc piece, which I must have dropped somewhere here 'I found it, said the other, and without hesitation he handed to tbe other four notes of 1,000 francs each and some gold, adding, 'You say it was a twenty franc piece you lost ; it is not my fault if the tapis vert has changed it into paper; but if yon regret the transformation, the play room is open, and will soon retrans- form it into less than the gold piece !' The original owner of the iwcuiy iiauc piece um nut imjuiic much pressing to induce him to take the windfall so unexpectedly offered him." a ' of . . Henry Clay said twenty years a go of the Abolitionists "With" them the rights of property are no thing; the deficiency of the powers of the general government is no thing; thcacknowledged and incon tostiblo powers of the states are no-, thin; civil war, a dissolution of the Union, and the Overthrow of a gov ernment in which are concentrated the hopes oew civilized World, 'are nothing. A single idea has taken possession of their minds, nn on ward they pursue it, overlooking all barrieri, reckless and regardless of all consequences." Henry Cloy told the truth. WA correspondent of tho Phil, adelphia Sunday Diepatch makes the following astounding state ment: "There is not the shadow of a doubt that our iOfficers have- .been 'picked out' and shot by. their own men on tho battle field,' in number less instances. A- staff officer in a conversation with me on this very subject, stated tliut he had been iu sormed by a mirgemi wlio liiid gone om the battle field at Antietam, tliat "he found to his great horror ami Rui-prise thnt nearly nil the of. fleers killed were wounded from bo hind r rt.'aptfnC: F. Hall has just ben narrating before the Ameri can Geographical Society his recent Arctic experience while in Boarch of trace of the Franklin expedition, and tuokthe opportunity of intro ducing to the society the Esiui- maux man whom ho brought away with him a hardy hunter, who has been known to stand for three lays and nights motionless on the ice beside a seal-hole. Captain Hall heard of anjnstance in which a party ,of these intrepid hunters survived for thirty days without a morsel ot lood, although even their faithful and wonderful doge succumbed to tho pangsof hunger. The essence ot grcatnesi is tho perception that virtue is- enough. Poverty is its ornament.- Just thoughts often fail io pro duce just deeds, but just deeds never fail to create just thoughts. In disputes men take hold of thoughts by the wrong iMiuUles. . A vow that you will or wilfjnot do this or that, shows consoious weakness and makes yoa ride be, hind yourself.
