While the orthodox and Heretical are disputing about hell, we know of nothing more pertinent than the ex traordinary conduct of a minister, lately published in the East. The Rev. Mr. Huckly of Stamford. Conn., evidently regards tne telling ol lies as quite compatible with morality. Being arraigned before a criminal court on a charge of procuring, by way that are dark and tricks tliar are vain, the conviction of certain violators ol the excise laws, he cited the Scriptures in his defence, and declared that he could produce tweuty-five cases from the Old Testament and five cases fron the new Testament in which deception was used to further the ends jf God The inference be sought to draw from this fact was, that the ends justifiV.- the means, and that lying for a good purpose is not a sin, but a laudable virtue. The question raised by Mr. Buckley's argument is an old one, and has been fiercely debated by many em inent casuists of both ancient and modern times. Oddly enough tin warmest defenders of the liberty oi lying have been Christians, while heathen nations, like the old Romans, have furnished some of the most earn est sticklers for the duty of telling the truth. Mr. Buckley says, truly, that the Bible contains numerous instance in which falsehood has apjiareutly met with divine approval, and persons so disposed may easily fancy that these instances are related to guide our con duct on like occasions. But other dissent entirely from this conclusion, and regard the lies mentioned in the sacred record as they d the adulteries and murders of which it speaks, ll Jacob's deceit of his father was follow ed with useful results, so too they say were David's adultery with Bathsheba and his murder of Uriah. In both cases the sin of the individual was overruled to a furtherance of a divine purMjse. but it was none the less a siu. Rahab, the harlot, lied to pro tect the spies who took refuge in het house at Jericho, and was rewarded by Joshua for her conduct; but she was no less a harlot and a liar than Delilah was, when, by similar prac tices, she betrayed Sajnso:i to the Philistines. Jacob, again, cheated his father-in-law out of his property, and abetted the stealing of his jewels ; but. though he became the patriarch of the Hebrew nation, his conduct was in itself no whit more praisworthy than that of Gehazi. who was smitten with leprosy for a much smaller of fence of the same character. We confess to a sympathy with this in terpretation or the matter as the more robust and wholesale, and to a feeling that Mr. Buckley's doctrine is unsound in itself and dangerous to the public welfare. The exigencies of life require us continually to rely upon one auotherV truthfulness. Not only business, but ordinary social intercourse would be impossible, if we could not safely as sume that what people tell us repre sents the actual fact. A simple Yes or No is the foundation upon which contracts are made, property changes bands and arrangements are entered into involving the destinies of a life time. If we had to atop at every moment and verify the assertions made to us, no opportunity would oe left us for doing anything else; and even then, if we had no confidence in human testimony, we should never arrive at a settled conclusion upon any subject. Fortunately the unper verted instincts of mankind irojel them to tell the truth rather than to lie, and the general obedience to these instincts ha hegotten a habit of con idenee in men's words. It is only when some selfish interest intervenes that a deviation from the truth is liable to occur; 'and to check the in- flaence of such interests, religion de nounces lying as a sin, and human opinion brands it as a social offence, which, when sufficiently, aggravated, a crime. Men like Mr. Buckley, therefore, in practising and apologizing for lying, run counter both to divine and hasjaa laws, and t. ...

Mr. Buckley has succeeded in his immediate purpose, and he may convince a few people that he has done no wrong, but since he justifies lyinjr on religious principles, he ought not to be surprise! I if henceforth he is not believed even when he speaks the truth. A Female Hermit. We hear quite frequently of male hermits, hut female hermits' are more r.;re. Femininity is generally but an other name for sociability, and no livelv, talkative woman cares t de prive her.elf of the opportunity of mingling with the society of her kind. But away out in Nevada there ex ists a vpri table she-hermit, an eccen tric woman who has kept a goat and sheep ranch for the past ten or twelve vear. ft he lives alone in a small cab in, with her goats, sheep and fowls for her only companions, invariably avoid ing all intercourse with white people as long as she can. When her stock of the necessaries o" life is exhausted. he visits the nearest towns to sella few dozens of eggs and chickens, with the product of which she replenishes her store. She is. quite sociable to the Indians that wander in that di rection, and treats them kindly al ways, especially when they are ill. At such times he prepares from moun tain plants, with whose properties she is well acquainted, beveragei that the Piutes believe to be all potential in re- torinr them to health. Her near est white neighbor lives probablv fif- een miles away, but she not only does not regard her isolation, but she rather likes it. It is said that she once moved in good society, and that mat rimonial infelicities drove her to this wild life. To Drive Away Bam. A lady writer, in a New York journal discourses in the following lyle concerning her treatment of rats and mite. We cleaned our premises of these detestable vermin by making a whitewash yellow with copperas and covering the stones and rafters of the cellar with a thick coating of it. In every crevice where a rat might tread was put crystals of the copiieras and -mattered the same in the corners of the floor. The result was a perfect itampede of - rats and mice. Since that lime not a footfall of either rat or mouse has been heard about the house. Every spring a coat of the vellow wash is given to the cellar, as n purifier as well as a rat extermina tor and no typhoid, dysentery, or fever attacks the family. Many persons deliberately attract all the rats in tne neighborhood by leaving fruits and vegitables uncovered in. the cellar, and sometimes even soup scraps are left open for their regalement. Cover up everything eatable in the cellar and pantry and you will soon starve them ait. These precautions joined to the the service of a good cat will prove as .Mid a rat exterminator as a chemist can provide. We never would allow rats to be poisoned in our dwelling: they are so liable to die between the walls, and produce much annoyance. Language of the Hair. All our features have their lan irnage eyes, nose and mouth. And now some one discovers that even the hair has its own indications. Straight, lank, stringy-looking hair indicates weakness and cowan I ice. Curly h.ir denotes a quick tem per. Frizzy hair set on one's head as if each individual hair were ready to tight its neighbor, denotes 'coarseness. Black hair indicates persistent reso lution in accomplishing an object also a strung predisposition to revenge wrongs and insults, real or fancied. Brown hair denotes fondness for life, a friendly disposition, ambition, earnestness of purjaise, cajKicity for business, reliability in friendship, in pniMirtiou as the hair is fine. Very fine hair indicates an even dis liosiiion, readiness to forgive, with a desijre to add to the happiness of oth ers; Persons with fine light brown or au burn hair, inclined to curl or friz, are quick tempered, and are, giveu to re sentment and revenge. Light brown hair, inclined to red ness with a freckled skin, is a certaiu indication of deceit, treachery, and disposition to'do something mean by a friend who can no longer be used to advantage. All of which may be news to fortune-tellers. Wot Entirely Destitute. Bainhndge (Ga) Democrat.

Philips. The Bono Cse- We understand that Adama Exnrem Company, through it St. Louia officer have sent hither one of their most distin guished attorneys, the same being no less a personage than the Hon. Kara. Breckinridge, to resist the application ol John Reno for r lease from the penitentiary hy the habeas corpus act. Reno claim' hi liberty by virtae of a warrant of Governor Brown commuting the teim of his imprisonment fiom 25 lo 10 yean. This warrant was actually issued. It was duly aulhenliC4ted under the aeal nt the office ol the St-cretarv of State. It was duly recorded in the oSJce of the War den id the ienilenliary. But it has since been suppressed. So far aa the facta in the caae are concerned, it has been stolen ami ia held for the avowed purpose ot extorting money from the man it was issued to benefit. Does the stealing ami suppression ot this commutation change its legal effect? Ia it the business ol Judge Breckenridge, the Iawye of Adama Express Company here in the city, to convince the Suprc Court that it does? John Reno may have been a very bad man and deserved the im prisonment be has received. But that he is a prisoner in the iwnitentiary doe not take away bis right to the commutation of his term Grafs Brown granted him in the lawful exercise of hi power as Governor of the State. He has seived the full lerm of ten years, and in the eye of the law has atoned for his crime. The sense of justice in the mind of every impartial man at all conversant with the facts, will pronounce to allow the knavery of official knaves aSn thievery of their pliant leads to triumph over the expressed will of the executive commuting the prisoner' term by the theft or embezzleawat of the original evidence of it. General Earing was engaged yesterday in taking dentition proving the ommuta tion, the certainty of the granting of which is unquestioned, and the establishment id which to the satisfaction of the court it ia believed will secure the prisoner's discharge.

These barbarities a.re gen- it iiraciicen ouisiue oi acuooi noiirs, , - during recess or in yoing to or from the II . T I . I -t school. Consequently the teachers are pow erless to punish these young villains,and in raanv instances the little sufferers are afraid to give the names of their po"utnr. On Friday evening a little boy was knocked down and severely injured during recess. About the only remedy seems to be for the parents of these ill treated little ones to take the matter and a good hickory switch into their own hands. Two Tramps. Yesterdav forenoon Officer Smith saw a tramp acting rather suspicioudy in an alley between Lamine and MastachasetU and Third and Fourth streets. He arrested the fellow, and upon finding that his partner was sawing wood for Mr. Wieler, he also took h'm in, and locked them both up.

"Basis of peace and aruiitice were agreed to 'Ihursday and should have been signed that day, but no further information cn be obtained as to whether they were cou sumuiatt'd. UNRELIABLE. Little reliance can be placed upon ' SACKED AND BURNED by Circassians and other irregular Turkish troops, should the Russians advance to attack or i;cctipy that city. The object of this is to give excuse to Kliglatid to send her fleet up to Con stantinople, and unless the armistice is known to be sigued by the time the supplementary vote of credit for six million pounds is reached, it ia ex isted that the fleet will be ordered to Constantinople at once. ENGLAND AND AUSTRIA have taken exactly the same course with regard to peace conditions, though acting entirely independent of eai-h other, and Russia has therefore consented to refer all questions affect ing European interest to the great powers. Whether TUESE QUESTIONS will be settled by these powers through a Congress, or through sepa rate negotiations with each Cabinet, has not as yet been determined, but it is likely that a Congress will as semble iu Vienna or Berlin. Tue action of GREECE in beginning hostilities tend to compli cate the situation. Nearly all of the best informed poli ticians here believe that the signing of the armistice comes TOO LATE and that the greatest difficulty is yet to be met. Signing the Armistice. Constantinople,- 4:30 P. M. Czar has telegi-aphed to the tiuJtau promising to grant the armistice. Servier Pasha, foreign Minister and onu of the plenipotentiaries, tele graphed, yesterday, that the Russian Grand Duke Nicholas was ready to sign a protocol of peace preliminaries under reserve of ulterior negotiations. The Grand Vizier in reuiy to the Servier Pasha's dispatch, authorised ni in to sign tne armistice and peace preliminaries. All military movements and emi gration of Mussulmen have been stopped. Bad Prospects for Peace. London. Feb. 2. The Journal De S. JKrsbura saya if Turkey were civilized properly, caring for the inter ests of all her subjects, the present oc cupation of her provinces might com ll her to make a Casus belli but the case is otherwise. The conclusion of peace is hardly possible. Armistice Signed. Brussels, Feb. 2. The Journal de Jlruxr.lUn anounces that it has received a dispatch from Constantinople, say ing the armistice was signed yester day. Sorr, ndered. Havana, Feb. 2. Ninety-five men. seventy women and forty children of Insurgent-Chief Romrezo's baud, have surrendered. Abies. Abies evidently realises the situation. He is said to be gloomy, refuses food, and complains ol a severe nam ia his head. His physician has failed, so far, to discover any symptoms of sickness. The fesada tion is probably being laid for a plea of insanity, and no doubt before the fatal day rolls around John Abies will be a raving maniac, to all appearances at least. A stomach pump will be ased to furnish the old man food if he does not recover hia sppetite soon. Otrtkage Beamer. HOTSTa ARRIVALS. GARRISON HOUSE : : : : BsawsSPkaTT. lUaioa Depot.) J Chas Smith.
