To Faioieks a- Others.—Hon. Isaac i
Newton, Commissioner of Agriculture, '
requests us to state it is desirable that !
small packages of the finest samples ol
the best varieties of wheat, corn, ami other
cereals, in packages of two pounds or less,
be sent to him for the purpose of being
forwarded to the great J'aris Exhibition,
which opens in April. Our farmers, mil
lers, <xc., thus have an opportunity to be
represented by their products where visit
ors from all nation- in the world can see
them. Remember, no package mn.-t
weigh over two pounds. Put it, up se
curely, mark your name, township or bo
rough, county and State on the outside,
and add res- it "Hon. Isaac Newton.
Commissioner of Agriculture, Washing
ton, 1). C." Such packages can he sent
free from any post office.
The Johnson men and copperheads will
have to make another swing around the
circle it they want to keep pace with the
President, a- lie ha.- almost got hack to
negro suffrage! The Southern rebel legis
latures having committed themselves
against the moderate terms offered by
Congress in the Constitutional Amend
ments, have at last wakened up to the fact
that the next Congress might ileal less
leniently than the present, and we have
accordingly two new schemes offered, one
by Gov. Orr ot South Carolina, and the
other by Senator Dixon, who is understood
to represent Johnson's views. Both agree
with the congre--ioiial amendment basing
representation on the number of voters,
but propo-o to make a property qualifica
tion and ability to read and write to make
a negro a voter, but none for a white
which, considering that the sand-hiller*
and dirt-eaters of South Carolina and
Georgia are really more ignorant and
debased than the blacks, is rather far
fetched—and totally k unreal] idea of pre
venting the leading rebel- from holding
office. A- the nut hern fire-eaters say
they cannot act < pt the congressional pro
visions without dishonor, neither can
Congress accept theirs. The chivalry
must back down more than this before
the\ tan, will or ought to be admitted to
ter" The most infamous proceeding !
which has lately come to light is the cor- |
respondents between Mr. Seward and Mr.
Motlej, the historian, who is our minis
ter to Austria. Mr. Seward addressed a I
letter to Mr. M., stating that an American !
citizen traveling in Kuropo represented !
t he %VU!i " the hal.it of disparaging |
the administration and particularly Mr 1
Seward, to which Mr. Motley wrote a
firm reply, stating what his praetiee was
and deeming Mr. Reward's letter not only
mean hut insulting, resigned his office.
Congress got hold of the matter and not 011-
name of this lying spy, who proves to be
an Irish copperhead of New York named
O. \\ . MeCraekeii. It is evident that the
scum of the Johnston party is engaged in
all kinds of disreputable acts to induce the
administration to make room for unprin
cipled office-hunters, who, like the cow
boys of the revolution, are ready to plun
der any party. Johnson it will be re
membered nominated Mr. Cowan for the
post held by Mr. [Motley.
It is stated that besides a host of
persons convicted of other crimes who
have received the Kxeeutive pardon from
Johnson, it has been extended to nincii/
count erf (titers oj Government Currency"'
Is it not high time some check was put
upon this business?
In the Senate on Wednesday, a resolu
tion was offered requesting -the Speaker j
to appoint two additional members of the 1
Railroad Committee who were in favor of
a free railroad law. The proposition was,
after debate, amended so as to instruct the
Railroad Committee to report a free rail
road law on Wednesday next, and that
the same be made the special order of the
day, and every subsequent day until li- ;
na'lly dispose i'of. It was then agreed to.
A resolution was agreed to, directing the j
Finance Committee to inquire whether j
any foreign insurance tompanies, doing
business in Pennsylvania, had evaded the j
tax or license law. An act allowing col- j
oretl persons to ride in public conveyan- j
ces was passed.
The President has approved of the bill
punishing with heavy fine and imprison
ment the buying, selling, exchanging,
transferring, receiving and delivering any
false, forged, counterfeited or altered pub
lic securities or currency.
The printing thereon of any business or
professional card is prohibited, under pen
alty, while punishment is to be visited on
the persons having in their possession,
without authority from the United States,
any imprint, stamp or impression from
any material to be used for the above
The President has also approved of the
bill providing that the courts ot the 1 ni
ted States, and the judges thereof, shall
have power to grant writs of habeas cor
pus in all cases where any person may be
restrained of his or her liberty in violation
of the Constitution, or of any treaty or
law of the United States—the law not to
apply to the ease of any person who is. or
may*he held, in the custody of the milita
ry authorities of the United States charg
ed with any military offense, or with hav
ing aided or abetted rebellion against the
Government of the United States, from
the passage of this act.
It is understood that the bill reported
t • the House by Hon. fhuddeus Slovens,
from the Joint Committee on Reconstruc
tion, establishing military rule over the
1 ite insurgent States, is approved by all
the military commanders from General
Grant down, especially those who have
command of departments in that section,
such as Generals George 11. Thomas.
Sheridan, Sickles, Ord, and others. Tin
bill was agreed upon in committee almost
without debate. It is said to have been
drawn up at tlie suggestion of prominent
military men who have had experience in
the late insurgent districts.
Copperhead Attack on General Butler.
—Some two or three weeksagoadespatcli
was telegraphed from the West, all over
the country, stating that Major General
liutler had instituted a suit for libel against
" lJriek" Pomeroy, editor of an obscene
Copperhead sheet published in La Crosse,
Wisconsin, and called the Democrat. On
the heels of this despatch came a corres
pondence, copied from the Democrat, and
extensively circulated through the col
umns of the Copperhead press, which cor
respondence purported to have passed be
tween General Butlerand the said' Brick'
Pomeroy. It turns out that not only was
the letter a forgery, but the entire story in
regard to the suit was a sheer fabrication.
We learn from undoubted authority that
no libel suit has ever been instituted by
Gen. Butler against the paper in question.
The secret of the repeal of the law
providing for a new election in the city
of Baltimore has leaked out. It appears
that i.i the new franchise law, throwing
open suffrage to traitors, all citizens were
clothed with this right, and it was only
when the fact was pointed out thai under
this statute, and by the plain meaning ol
tin- civil-rights law. negroes were citizens,
and would therefore vote in the coming
election, that they found out their mis
take. Alarmed at the prospect of losing
everything, the Swannites hastily repeal
ed the law, and the present city govern
ment will continue, unless intermediate
ly dismantled, until November of W;,s.

A Lucky Mill.
Lee's Possessions at Prairie de Bocher, IU.
An exchange gives the following para
graph, which is worth reading, whether
it be true or not. It is given with an air
of certainty, which is strong evidence of
its veracity, or else that Lee wants to
sell his mill at a high price.
Some years ago a Frenchman, who was
working by the day or month in a mill,
in the town of Prairie de Rocher, 111., fell
heir to about $40,000 by the death of a rel
ative in France, since which time he has
been living on the interest of his money.
We believe the mill referred to is now
owned by Mr. A. 11. Lee.
On the 31st of July, 1865, there wassold
to a man named Julius Wangelin, who
was then working in a mill in Prairie de
Rocher, owned or conducted by A. H.
Lee, a lottery ticket, in one of Murray,
Eddv & Co.'s lotteries, which drew the
said Julius one-half of the grand capital
prize of $30,787.
On January 21st, 1867, the ticket in the
Crosby Opera House Lottery which drew
the Opera House itself, was found to be
long to the Mr. A. 11. Lee, mentioned
above, and who is proprietor of said mill.
A Strango Afluir.
The following is copied from the New
York correspondence of the Boston Jour
One of the vilest places in the Fourth
ward, and one of the most popular of the
class, is kept by a man of forty years of
age. He has been eleven years in the
business. He is very smart and talented,
and has amassed a fortune of $lOO,OOO.
He has built one of the most elegant and
complete tenement houses in the city. Ile
belongs to*one of the first families in the
State. His brother is an eminent minis
ter of the gospel. He was piously brought
up, received a collegiate education and
graduated at the Union Theological Sem
inary of the city of New York. He took
to this life and has followed it eleven years
without fiitiching. He keeps religious
books in his establishment, and when he
can get a chance talks religion amid the
dance, and the drunkennessand profanity
of his don. He has a genial wife who
tends the bar and superintends the Ajni
nine portions of the concern. He has ed
ucated two of his brother's children for
the ministry, and is said to be quite lib
eral in benevolent matters. Such a speci
men of intelligent recklessness and edu
cational depravity cannot probably be
paralleled on the continent. Havingseen
t'.iis man and talked with him, 1 know
what I write. He has changed his name
so us not to disgrace his family.
I&sp At this season of the year, when so
many of our peoplearesullering from colds
we call attention to Acer's Cherry Pecto
ral as a sure cure not only for coughs and
colds, but all afflictions of the lungs and
throat. Having used it in our family for
many years, we can speak from personal
knowledge of its efib-iency. There may
be other rome lies that are good, but in all
our experience this has proved to be by
far the best. Its qualities are uniform and
wholly reliable. It is pleasant to take,
and should be kept at command by every
family, as a protection against a class of
complaints which seem harmless in the
beginning, but 1 >econic afflicting and dan
gerous if neglected.—A'. 11. Begister.
