EDITOR or Tittsoaartt:—Uoder the above
caption there appears an Article in your paper
or yesterday evening, signed John A., Fisher, in
which, speaking of the annual statement by
common council of the finances of the city he
says : "I noticed, to my great surprise, an item
of credit for expenditures, by council of paper
books and Attorney's fees, J. A. Fisher $189."
In his comment on this great surprise, he says:
"This is a gross mistake, if not a wilful error
and intended misrepregentation, as I never re
ceived that nor any other sum of money for the
items mentioned from the city tteasury, nor
for any other account during the years 1861-62.

This is the evidence on which the "annual

Mr. Fisher or any other person can make it a
"gross mistake," he certainly would have
better luck, than he had in framing the city

BILLY PAI3I3RD.—The following additional bills
have been signed by the Governor' since the
adjournment of the Legislature:
April - 9th —An act to repeal so much of the
13th section . of an act, entitled "A supplement
to the act consolidating the city of Philadel

widening of Fifth street, northward of York

also about erecting a handsome dwelling house

the property, of Mr. Cyrus J. Reese. We-also
observe workmen engaged tearing out the front:
of the three-story brick building owned by

rruE HILITAM GIOTIUS OF THE Noarn.-Since
the outbreak of this war, the military genius
of the North has shown itself in a thouiand'
different ways,. In, a moment we transformed
ourselves from a great army of laborers into a
great army of soldiers. Officers stepped out of
the ranks of our trades and professions, and a
railroad snperinturidnot bezel:go our.Coni madd
ing general, As the war progressed the inven
tive genius of the country became military, and
hundreds and thousands of inventions, from
patent army trunks to new kinds of artillery,
have added to the comforts and efficiency of our
soldiery.. On the sea the same process is evi
dent, and our Monitor has revolutionized all
naval warfare. Ia fact, every . class of the peo
ple has become military, and the military
genius of the country has infused itself into
almost every department of literature, trade,
commerce, manufacture and art.
Too LAZY TO Mouart.—We live heard of very
lazy people. Men too lazy to shell corn when
presented to them by charitable neighbors to
keep them from starving. Men "too lazy to
draw their last breath," consequently never
"kicked off the mortal coil." But the laziest
man we ever heard of resides In Albany. Here
le an item from an Albany paper :
"A well known milliner, on Washinsiton ave
nue, has gone off witliv a man not her husband.
It appears that she ; carried on a good business,
and made considerable money. Her husband
would, not wdrk at all, simply because his wife
was making a good living for herself and him
too. But the wife was not to be bamboossled
into any euoh arrangement as that. He was
well able to work, and had plenty to do, if ; he
would only do it, but he wouldn't. So the
other evening she wrote him a note that she
had found a man who would support her. Off
she went, and her husband, it is said, is so indo4
lent that he won't even mourn her loss. Very
lazy man, that."
A WORD IN Si.asoN.—A cotemporary very
pertinently wonders what those young men do,
who may be seen strolling through the streets
until the midnight hour. In commenting up.
on the subject, he says: "No doubt after im
bibing sundry glasses of lager, etc., they feel

sons of propriety,are wrapped in, their slumbers,
they can carry en their machinations with

young 'sparks' if they wpuld stay at home and

These remarks apply with the same force, to .
many of ova ydung men. Not content with '
stultifying themselves with intoxicating drinks,
many of them spend their evenings, aye, and
the "small hours," too, at places where they

SEWING MACISCEEEE.—We direct the attention
of our readers to the advertisement, in another
column, of Grover & Baker's Sewing Machines.
We have bad one of the machines made by
this firm in family use for the past two years,
and cto truly recommend it as one of the best
inventions of the age. It adapts itself to almost
every variety of sewing, and the evenness, beau
ty and durability of the stitch is worthy of all
POOR WHISTLING.—"Speaking of bores," says
a victim of one of the species, "I can scarcely
imagine one capable of inflicting more misery
than an intolerable whistler. I can stand a fife,
when all. the -nation is armed and equipped on
training day, and the dram, with its ‘flang,
flans,' serve to drown its.screame ; but to lis
ten to a poor air badly murdered by a poorer
pucker's I : irlifer in some easier, if ,not quicker
way. I always think of the French stagecoach
driver, who being very much annoyed by such a
bore, turned upon him: "Mine frien, vat for
you all de times vissel ? You loss your leetle
dog, eh ?" -
EARLY WALKING!—Walking, for young and
active people is by far the best exercise ; rid
ing is good for the elderly, the middle-aged
and invalids. The abuse of these exercises
consists It taking them when the system is ex
hausted more or less by previous fasting or by
mental labor. Some persons injudiciously at.
tempt a long walk before breakfast, under the
belief that it is conducive to health. Others
will get up-early to work three hours at some
abstruce mental toil. The effect -in -both in
stances is the same ; it substracts from the
powers of exertion in the after.part of the day.
A short saunter,-or some light reading before
this meal, is the hest indulgence of the kind,
otherwise the waste occasioned by labor must
be supplied by nourishment, and the breakfast
will necessarily become a heavy meal, and the
whole morning's cornfort sacrificed by a weight
at the chest from imperfect indigestion of food.
These observations apply especially to elderly
persons, who are prone to flatter themselves
into the persuasion that they can use their
mental or bodily powers in age as in youth.

We should judge from our own experience that

they would be, in the end, one of the cheapest
