Lions of electors for the most numerous branch of the State Legislatures," there was no distinction on account of color in those nine States. Connect ficut and Rhode Island, being under the old Roy al charters, could have had none. Even South Carolina, by its Constitution of ,1776, allowed ne gmes to vote : but in '7B it restricted the privi lege to "every white man," &e. - In Delaware, by actrof . February 3, 1786, em anc ip a t e d s laves and their issue were debarred "the privilege of voting at elections or being elected." And even this seems, like most of the laws oT slavery, a violation of the letter of the Constitution of that State. ' • It is well known among informed men, that the practice of admitting free persons of color to vote, obtained universally at first, under the general qualifications prescribed for electors, among all the original "Old Thirteen." In Virginia, negroes voted, side by side with white men, until 1850! In Louisiana, a few blacks exercised the franchise even later. BY M'CLURE & STONER an: Alining Qrampattp.

EATON:—DEAR SIR: The eample of ore that con left with me, marked 'Discovery E," gave by assay, in Silver $164 56-100 Silver per ton. Tours truly, Run-trEL.rimi, April,3, Pifil—The sample of silver ore from Montana Territory examired at your request, contains 172;4 ounces of Silver in WOO lbs. of ore value $2.Y' 1,4 Gold per ton. The above ore is said to come from the.Eatoo bode. =I Messrs. Adelberg and Raymond. mining Engineers, New York, say "We assume that the Lead ore FjII yield 815 io Silver to the-tou., and the Silver ores S.SXI. These Spares are moderate entyugh, since, according our assays, theBll - ores contain from $913 to $3310 specie value." - From the above assays, some Idea may be formed of the immense value of this property, and of the certainty of a large yield. Bnt even that idea will be merely approx isuative, without a due consideration of the following facts The celelirated Comeloth. Silver Lode, in Nevada, wor ked by the "(Innld and Carry," "Empire," "Yellow Jack et," "Ophir," "Crown Point," "Savage" and some other cumin - mire, sold on the Bth of April, 1865, at prices avers giag over Two Thourand Do:lors per foot. These mines yield an e5-ernge'of aboui $6 to the ton which include. , first, second and third Clasen OFores. Now, the everdge yield of the three elmsea of ore of the Eatnnarol Altrout Lodes trill certainly be more tlamt $65 per tau ; indeed, from the large number of amays thus far made, not only here, but In the actual workingx of the mine, it will probably reach en or FPO pen ton. The 2400 feet owned by the Company woad, therefore, be worth, at the price of the Corngtoek Lode,• nearly Five 3fillions of Dollars. The Company have sent, a mill of twenty-tour stamps to the mines, and crpert returns in /direr in September. This will boable to crush thirty tons of ore per day, at an ex pease for mining, crashing and smelting of ten dollars (810) per ten. Then, taking the yield at only 860 per ton, the result would be as follows 30 tone per day, at $6 O Coe, $lO per toa Net daily profit or $450,000 per annum, payable, not in coven cy, but In the coin itself. The property of the Company is amply sufficient for a dozen companies, and could not be exhausted to a lifetime Prospectors are also engaged by the Company, taking up other Lodes for them The operations at tee mines are under the saperinten• deuce of the Hon.

GREETINGS We have arranged a few examples in alphabet ical order. For instance, the Arabs are very ceremonious. If persons of distinction meet, they embrace, kiss each other's cheeks, and then kiss their own hands. Women and children kiss the beards of their husband: , and fathers. Their greetings are marked by a Ftrona religions character, such as "God grant thecliis favors," "If God wills, thy family enjoy good health," "Peace be with you," etc. Bengalese Call themselves the most humble slaves of those they desire to salute.

HOW TOM CORWIN ICID HIS SISTER OF AN OBNOXIOES LOVER Every one has heard of the eloquent, pathetic, and humorous stump orator of Ohio. He was pronounced by Mr. Clay (a most competent au thority,) to be the finest stump speaker Ife had ever heard; and in this opinion I moat heartily coincide, alter having heard Clay, Crittenden, Jones of Tennessee, Polk, Benjamin, Soule, Ran dall, Hunt, Tom Marshall, Gen. Lamar, Bates, Douglas and a host of others. • Well, this great orator carried his love of fun into every department of life. In the private cir cle, where he knew every person, and where ho unhosomed himself fully, he was the most delight ful conversationalist I ever listened to. I do not know that hallow, as age and infirmity are cropp ing on, indulges this proclivity to humor so mdch as he used to do. But some twenty years ago he used to tell with great gusto, the following story: "In early life—so early that I cannOtremember the removal—my father "pulled up stakes," and carrying with him the household goods, went from Bourbon county, Kentucky, where I was born, to Ohio. Notwithstanding a rough and tumble struggle with the world, he had a hard time to get on, owing to a numerous and rapidly increas ing family Well, family matters had not muclg improved when I had reached my thirteenth or fobrtcenth year.. ' "At this time there lived in the neighborhood a young man by the name of Pickering. He had inherited a well stocked , farm, was good-looking and made a strong profession of religion. This latter qualification caused him to find peculiar favor in the eyes of my father, who always was blinded by professions of extra piety. "This fellow had a strong hankering after one of my sisters, who• was a very pretty girL To her he was peculiarly distasteful. She seemed always annoyed at his presence. , Yet he was ever at her side. She dared not dismiss him en tirely, for fear of the paternal anger. Things went on this way a year,or two, and as I partook largely of my sister's hatred to him, I resolved to get rid of him in some way. I cast about for a plan Mr some time, but nothing occurred which gave me the slightest hope of being successful. At last returning home late one summer night from mill, I found the family at their nightly de r votions. Passing by the windows of the room in which tlby were assembled, I saw that Pickering was there, and pretty soon discovered that he was nodding, and finally his bead dropped. Now was my opportunity. I stole slily into the hill, and reaching the hall door, which was slightly ajar, and close by which Pickering was " un bend ed knee," I reached in, and- quickly pulling his chair from under him. liezrolled heavily, as a - sound sleeper would upon the floor. The nOise alarm ed all. The old gentleman stopped in the midst of his almost interminable prayer, and saw the position of Pickering. All the-fatally laughed oug right; even my mother smiled. " Pickering endeavored to pick himself up as rapidly as possible, but he had touched the old man upon his tenderest point. It was evident, from his ebbing his eyes, that he had slept under the old_ gentleman's ministrations ; and had not my father a reputation far and wide for the fer vency and strength of his ministrations,, and was not Pickering his professing brother? Slowly yet most dignifiedly did the old man approach him. " .Begone hypocrite!" ht. cried, in thunder ing tones. "Never eater m.y house again." "Pickering was thunderstruck. He felt that he could make no apology which would not add to insult. He had no suspicion of the extra force which had aided him in his fall. He at once found his hat, took up his line of march, and com pletely crest-fallen, passed by me as I stood grin ning in the shadow of the porch. "At a suitable time I entered, got my supper, was told`by a brother in hurried whispers, what had happened, and then I stole off to bed, affect ing ignorance, and laughing most heartily, as I ensconced myself in the sheets, at the complete success of my plan. - . . " Next day I cautiously imparted my secret to 'my sister. She was in her own room at the time, and she threw herself upon the bed and rolled in agonies and convulsions of laughter. She had been emancipated forever from the obnoxithis lover. The old gentleman did not hear the real state of the facts for full twenty years afterwards; but when lie did he laughed heartily." TM::-30'1 AND THE END OF TILE WAIL The greatest war of modern history has ended. in triumph. The country has demonstrated the vastness of its power. ire knew it was great; now all the world knows it. Our neighbors across the water,' who said our very greatness was our weakness—that we should never hold togetherr. that we must fall to pieces, and very small pieces at that—now take off theiclfats and beg to assure us of their "most distinguished consideration." Verily ! a young nation that can raise two millions of fighting mu and two thousand millions of mo ney, just for the asking, is worthy of being "con sidered." They told ns we could not carry on the war six months without begging for loans in European markets. We did carry on such awar as ,they never dreamed of, for four years, and never asked for a dollar; and they now wish to buy oun bonds at an advance of fifty per cent. over last year's prices. Government stoeks are quoted as brisk and in demand, and well they may be - , for the time will soon come wan no more will be offered. The national expenses will soon he down to a peace footing, and, instead of a Treasury budget of nine hundred millions, Secre tary McColloCh n ill ask us fur about a third of that sum. Mid how much easier it will be to raise this in peace than in war! The millions Of soldiers who have sd long made it a business to destroy life and property will return to pursuits of industry. and the now ravaged fields will whi ten with new, harvests. Instead of reading every morning that so many miles of railroad - have been destroyed,. it will be that "so many new avenues to material wealthint, ve been opened." The South itself will be 'compelled to bear its share of the burden it imposed on the country, and its cotton —so much greater than gold, and still so much less than king—will have no attribute of royalty but what it pays into the revenue. A tax on Southern cotton will be quite as easily collected al on Northern petroleum or manufgetures, and besides the article must be had—the world wants =lt would take but a fraction of our property-to pay our national debt .now ; but if we do not pay a dollar of the 'prnciple in ten years, that traction will be reduced one halt—by the development of the national resources. We shall doubtless wind up She War and square all accounts with a nation al debt of less than three thousand millions on about 16 per cent, of the present national wealth; but, according to its rate of increase (127 per cent.) from 1850 to 1860,—in 1875 this debt will beless than nine per cent. But our ability to pay the national debt needs no demonstration ; but as sonie - of us hair looked upon the dark side, we may as well have a glance at the sunshine. The national loans will soon be ont of the mar ket-,----but fur a short time the Government will need moneyto pay otf the army and settle up the expenses of the war. Only about two hundred millions more of the second .series of the 7410 I.odn'iemain to be taken, and when:it is finally witbdiiawn, there is no doubt that it will rise to a handsome premiutti, and at the rate -it is now going, some-time within the next sixty days will see tilt last of this series. Mr. Jay Cooke, the subscription agent, announced in February "that the first two hundred millions of 7430's will prob ably be taken in at par from three to for months" --but they were taken in less than two, So that parties who desire to_ invest at par in the U. S. Loan, bearing se - en and three-tenths annual in terest, and in three years couvertible into a 5-20 six per cent, gold interest bond should make their preparations accordingly.

At two-and-twenty, or thereabouts, we would have begun to pay attention to a girl with a father worth $2,000, and a spit earl on her forehead— a girl who always went to singidg school, and "set in the seats," and sung without opening her mouth —a , pretty girl any way.

VOL. 72,...,WH0LE NO, 3,707, A SECOND ROBINSON : ESOE. General Scott, in his interesting utobiography, gives an account of a Robinson a rusoe, a Mr. Pain, who lived a solitary lire of . any years on the Island of Cape Breton. 'He says - Mr. Pain sailed from Boston in a smack for the banks of Newfoundland and other fishing grounds 115 . 1774, before the outbreak of the Rev olution. Having made_ up the cargo in. the Gut of Canso, Pain begged his companions to let him 'remain till the return of the party the folloWirtg season. They assisted in building him abut, and left bins with a good supply of personal and bed clothes, some axes and other tools, a gun, with am munition, fishing tackle, and such other stores as could be spared, together with a Bible, "Paradise Lost," and the '• Pilgrim's Progress." Prayers were said at parting, and the smack , sailed for home. This was the last that our adventurer saw of "the human face divine" for nine or ten years. The Revolutionary war supervened. "-There was no mom tiering and curing of fish by Americans on those'shores—the Gut of Canso not being nav igated at that. period except by vessels driven in• to it by stress of weather. There was no road and no trail across the mountains to any settle ment whatever. For the first year, and, indeed, till his supplies began to fail him, Mr. Pain, then young, did not lament his condition. But when the second and third seasons Caine, and again and again there was no return of' his friends it seemed evident that they had abandoned him; his spirits drooped and he was in danger of being lost in despair. But man is the most flexible and phallic , of all animals According to his own account, Mr. Pain began soon to relish food without salt; the deer and fleece goat were abundant, furnishing him with both food and raiment, and which he contrived to entrap after his powder and shot were exhatisteit So, too, in respect to worn-out -books and lines; these were replaced by bones and slips of skin, so that there was no want of the "finny prey." By the fifth year he began to like the new life as well as at first. His books were more than a solace to him, and the autobiographer can testify that he could accurately recite from memory entire chapters of the Bible, and many of the books of "Paradise Lost." Finally, when at the end . of the war, his old master in a smack came in search of him or his remains, he had'become so attached to this mode of existence that he refused to return to his na tive soil. A good supply of, necessaries was left with him. His little property at home was in vested in cattle, with materials for a small house, some furniture, &c., all of which were sent out to him, with an old sister, a farm laborer and a lad —a relative. Before 1812 some new connections and laborers had joined him, and he had become a thrifty' armer. SPEECH OF A CONVERTED REBEL. At a meeting of Southern men M Memphis, ceutly, Colonel Grace, of Arkansas, spoke as Ml lot% s : ;FELLOW CITIZENS: I am the man who drew up the 'ordinance of Seccession in the Legislature of Arkansas. I have been ini the field fighting against the Union for nearly four years, but now lam a conquered and whipped man. [Laugh ter.] As I was gallant in going out to fight, I now propose to be gallant at surrendering and submitting to the arms of Me Government that we cannot whip. [Laughter-]. i.I have no con tempt for Federal authority nat , , if I ever had, I do not think there is a manly bosom in the South but that has' higher respect for Northern - gallantly than when wo went into the fight.— There may be some men in the North who may think that the South had a hand in the death of our lamented President, but Iknow that the peo ple of the South mourn over his death, and feel that they have lost a friend. The North have maintained this conflict nobly, and the South have nothing to be ashamed of. lam proud of the South—there is something in the very atmosphere that makes men great. So, I say that the South is not an insignificant:people ; and if so great peo ple as they are cannot whip the world, who can not come to the inevitable conclusion that the North is greater 1 [Laughter.] And lam not going to stultify myself by saying I have been whipped by somebody: Now it is our duty to re spect and go back to this great national church— repent, get absolution, and be baptized afresh. [Laughter.] I know we will receive honorable and just terms. When I bad an interview with the President, his heart seemed to be ever over flowing with love toward the Southern people. We first went out of the Union and threw down the gage of battle, and the North picked it up ; we fired the first gun and took the first fort—Fort Sumter—which was taken back a few days ago. [Laughter.] The North seemed tee be unwilling to fight; they did not think we would fight, and so we.thoutzht of them, but, to our sorrow, we have found out different; they seemed to spring up like mushrooms from all parts of the earth. &fore this War I never saw a Federal officer hardly. I never felt the slightest oppression of the Federal Government; in fact I nner thonght we:had one until I went out to fight; then I found we'did have a Government., EI<AE NEW PRESIDENT. 1 , The following is an extract Alma a. ‘ speech of the historian Bancroft, on the occasion of the re cent funeLl obsequies of the late President in New Tort: The du y of the hour is incomplete, our mourn. ing is insincere if, while we express unwavering trust in the great principles that underlie our gov ernment, we do not4illo give support to the man to whom ;the people( Save entrusted its adminis tration.

Then at the Capitol, when Senators, unrebuked .by the Government, sent word by telegram to seize forts - and arsenals, be alone from that South ern region toll them what the Government did not dare to tell them, that they were traitors and deserved' the punishment of treason. Undismay ed by a perpetual purpose of public enemies' to take - his life, bearing up against the still greater triarof the persecution of his wife and children, in due time he went back to his State, determin ed to restore it to the Union, or die with the -American flag for his winding sheet. And now, at the call of the United States, he has returned to Washington as a conqueror, with Tennessee as a free State for a trophy. It remains for him to cousumate the vindication of the Union. ANECDOTE OF PRF.SIDENT LINCOLN.-A woman in a faded shawl audlood, somewhat ad winced in life, was admitted in her turn, to the President. Her husband had been killed, and she hat. tome to ask the President to release to her` the oldest eon. Being satisfied of the truthfulness of her story, he said, " Certainly, if her prop was taken away she was justly entitled to one of her boys." He immediately wrote an order / tor the discharge of the young man. The poorlwoman thanked him very vatefully, and went away.— On reaching the army she found that this son had been in a recent engagement, was wounded, and was taken to a hospital. She found the hospital, but the boy was dead, or died while she was there. The surgeon in charge made a memoran dum of the facts upon the back of the President's order, and, almost broken-hearted the poor wo man found her way again into his presence. He was much effected by her appearance and story, and said, " I know what you wish me to do now, and shall do it without your asking: I shall re lease to you your second son." U pon . this he took up his pen and commenced writing theor der. 'While he was writing the poor woman stood by his side, the tearsrunning down her face, and passed her hand softly over his held, stroking his rough hair as I have seen a fond mother to do a son. By the time he had finished writing his own heart and eyes were full. He handed her the paper. " Now," said he, " you have one and I one of the other two left; that is no more than right." She took the paper, and reverently pla cing her band again ,upon" his head, the tears still upon her cheeks, said, " The Lord bless you Mr. „President. May you live a thousandyears, and may you always be the head of this great nation." A TOUCH of PETROLEUSI.--Close to the lands of the Centre Oil Company there lives an old chap worth a mint. -.lgnorant, of course, dumb luck has made him rich. His household pets consist of a terrier dog and stupid daughter, both of whom engage his attention. The former provided for, he determined to "accomplish" his daughter. To this end he came to the city. He bought opium.. a harp, a guitar, and a car load of music books. and so forth, winding up his business-by engaging a first-class intellectual and music tutor, with all of which he started for the "region." The docu ments were of course soon arranged fur business. The tutor set to work and toiled like a Trojan, but with no success. Despairing of ultimate tri umph, he went to the oil king and made a clean breast of it. "Why, what the world's the matter?" asked the father. "Well," answered the tutor, "Kitty has a piano, and guitar, and harp, and music, and books, and all that, but she wants capacity—that's all." "Well, by the Lorg Harry, cried the oil king, "if that's all, just buy it. I've got the stuff, and if money will get it she shall have capacity or any thing else."- THE REBEL WOMEN IN RIGHMOND.-A cor respondent of the Washington Chronicle says: Of the women in. Richmond I might write vol umes. They have much to answer for. They have been severely misled by..the piess and the pulpit. They have credited the falsehoods of the one and been - seduced by the religious glossesof the other. The Confederate cause got tobe iden tified with their domestic peace and their relig ious connections, and it is a rending of the heart strings to see it Dill They have lost•no'opportu nity to stimulate the 4 pride and flagging hopes of the sterner sex. 'I hate" the Yankees,' said ,a young girl amid her companions. 'lf I ever have any children, even though Lee is beaten, I will bring them up in eternal hatred of those who have subdued us.' Our hostility,' said another,'is ; I shall never do anything but hate those who have deprived us of our rights ; I should nev er have been willing toyield if it bad not been yield or starve, and life is sweet.' -But the most violent bear testimony to the good conduct of our troops, and the universal acknowledgement was that they could hardly believe their own eyes, the Yankees had behaved so much better than they expected."

Peculiarity in the Scottish people, says the Registrar General—theft fondness for marrying on tte last day of the year. There are more mar riages in Scotland on that - day than in any week of the year, excepting, of course, the week in which that day occurs. The detailed returns for 1861 have just been issued, and the-number of marriages in the eight principal towns would av erage some twenty-five a day—that is to say, a work day, for marrying is a thing not to be done in Scotland on Sunday—but the Registrar Gener al states that, in fact, there are betu een 400 and 500 marriages in those towns on the 31st of De cember By another curious usage, a large pro portion of these marriages are not registered un til January, making that appear a favorite month for marrying, which it is not A LADY dressed iu as litturious fabric as e;er fluttered from a•fairy form " before war's deadly blast was blown," with a sweeping trail behind" her on-the ground, of indefinite length, turned the corner at the Wayside Hospital the other day, and as she turned she cast a glance of anxious solicitude back to see if the aforesaid trail was all 0.
