"Mr. Seward's dream is the Presidency.
He expects when the work of shame has
been accomplished, that the congenial or
ganizations defeated ILy_our armies in the

been hallucinations before, but none so for

THE WHEAT CROP.—The Indianapolis
correspondent of New Albany Ledger
says: "The reports generally from the
northern portion of the State in • regard to
the wheat crop are very unfavorable. In
the more northern counties the crop will be
almost a failure. We regret to say that
the accounts from the middle section of the
State are also discouraging, and in fact, we
may say this intelligence comes-from all
sections of the State. The wheat- tuirvest
lust year was very light, and we fear, from
present reports, that there will be a dimin
ished yield next harvest. We hope these
reports may turn out to be the fears of
croakers; but now there appears to .be too
much reality in them."

false pretenses, preferred respectively by

Lewis and John Sctz. It appears
that a day or two since hoentered the li
quor store of John Schnitz, In Allegheny,
and loft an order ( or three or four hundred
dollars worth of liquors, representing that he
wasithe third oweler of s certain (steamboat,
and wished to stock the bar. lie further re,
presented that the present stock had entirely
run out, and be would like lo take several
bottles of the purchase Just made for use un
til the other should be delivered, at which
time ho would settle the bill. The proprietor
gave him a number of bottles, but made '
ries before shipping the balance of the liquor
as to the truth of Duncan's statements, when
he thatovered that ho had been ImpoSed on by
a confidence man. •
The scene of Dmocaasecond expicnt in the

as an agent of Joseph S. Finch, on the same

that the clerk was not in, and he could not get
