'Wouldn't Take Twenty Doifarm.
Some waggish student at Yak College, a
few years since, were regaling themselves
one evening at the "Tontine," when an old
farmer from the countr, claims! the room
(taking it for the bar-mewl and inquired if
he could obtain lodging. The young chaps
immediately answered in the affirmative in
viting. him to take a glass of punch. The
old fellow, who was a shrewd Yankee, saw
at once that he was to be made the butt of
their jests, but quietly laying off his hat and
telling a worthless little dog he had with
hint to lie under the chair, he took a glvs
of the proffered beverage. The student , :

''You will not? Ilere, let us see if this

student, producing a small hag of half dol

the table, where the tamer sat with his hat
in his hand, apparently unconcerned.
"There, - added the student, "there are

The old farmer quietly 'skull his hat to
the edge of the table. and then as quick OF
thought soaped all the money into it except

Nineteen awl a half is as much us the dog

A tremendous laugh from his fellow

boring house, which she did. ft happened,
however, that from the window in his bed
room the emperor saw the whole affair.
In the assembly of his lords on the fol
lowing day, when Egirvard and his daugh
ter were present, he asked what ought
to be done to the matt who vompelled a kings
daughter to carry him oft her shoulders,
through frost and snow, in the middle of a

A WILD Won.m—On Monday evening
last, an old woman went to the farm house
of Mr. Caleb, in Elk Neck, and asked for
milk. Having drank freely, she left and

Caleb's cornfield, was attracted by the tum

There is a terrible sting in retributive
justice. When the judgments oLitiesion
and malevolence come back to be executed
upon those who fulminate them ; when the
insolent official is suddenly hurled from his
high place, and made to occupy the seat of
the criminal ; that is retributive justice I
It was Mr Wade,. if' we remember rightly,
who a few short weeks ego proclaimed that
no Democrat would, hereafter, be permitted
to take his seat in either [lowa) of Congress,
There was sufficient insolence in the declar
ation itself, but Mr. Wade is not a man to
leave unsaid anything to give point to his
speech. He declared the Democracy a
generation of vipers, and denounced them
as unfit for association, with Sumner, But
ler, Stevens, and the erudite Colfax. That
was putting the Democrats sufficiently low
down in the scale ; but to see the full form
of the speech we must remember that Mr.
Wade had set up the negroes of Ohio to
do the voting for the proscribed Democracy.
At length we have the result of the issue,
Mr. Wade himself is stricken down, and
all his negro constitueney has gone down
with him. What he denounced for others
has fallen upon his own devoted head. He
and the negroes are left out, and the De
manes' mane in. Sumner and Wade and
S evens and Ashley and Chandler and But
ler have all gone down together. What a
precious brood of martyrs the Radicals have
cast into the Republican graveyard. Now
let the humane and considerate Mr. Holt,
and the kind hearted Stanton, give us a
funend eulogy. The fernier should be con
fined to the diameter, services, and states

ative nature of' military over civil govern
ment, the supremacy of' Congress under

sneation showing that the rebellion hascom
meneed. We are Nei of light literature,
and really count on Brigadier-General Holt,
Judge Advocate-Gencial of the Cnitetl
States Army, to give us something wonder
rally like himself in this matter. The pee
plc are running astray—absolutely running
astray. It will not be five years at their
present rate of Spec'', before they will come
to the conclusion that taint by jury, a free
press, and free speech and civil government
are respectable and even essential elements
in our Democratic system. The Judge Ad
vocate-General, who is a sort of cross be
tween a lawyer and general --not mull of
either—might easily convince Congress that
we are in a state of war all this time, and it
might be well 14 Congress by special act to
make it perpetual. This would giveground
for restoring Mr. Stanton and putting out
the President, War would go far to justify
a total divegard of the Ohio elections, and
we doubt not Stanton might he induced to
annul them by proclamation--appoieting
Wade to his old place in the Senate. This
kind of work would be nothing new to Stan

prison, fled enabled his detectives to make
some of the most complete and profitable

Mug. LINcoLN's Exro::E.----The New
York Glizen takes this view of the sub
jeet of Mrs. Lincoln's sale
"The letters are all but a confession that
the political farms and places obtained and
given away by Mrs. Lincoln's influence with
her husband were regarded by that lady in
the light of personal perquisites, to be dis
posed of either lhr presents or flattery, as
the whim might seize her. She can now
only go one step farther. Let her take up
each present, state from whom received,
and, further, label it with a memorandum
of the probable profits in place, or on some
shoddy contract, or permit to buy cotton
which the presenter must have betted. in
this manner wo think it might be found
that the actual value returned by Mrs. Lin
coln's influence to a gentleman who pre
sented her with a carriage and a pair of
Iturses—cuiainly not molting over two
thousand dollars, all told—must have been
in the vicinity of ut least Four Hundred
Thousand,Dollars ; awl very likely a hind
lar exhibit. might show that every shawl,
and dress, and article of jewelry in her col
!action, must have been paid for (finally by
the country,) at the 8440 extravagant rate."

Crime la Cuba.
The Havanna correspondent of the New
Orleans Picayune gives a terrible libitum or
crime in Cuba. 110 says :
Mr. Chinehillu, Postmaster-General, has
had an awful tragedy enacted last Sunday
evening at his resideuce, which nearly cost
him the forfeit of his life. One of his sisters
in-law and her mother had been residing
with his family for some time ; the former,
a young widow, was about marrying a sec
ond time. She owned a mulatto about soy
euteen years of age, who had boon brought
up in the family, and was of a very prepo•
sensing appearance. His mistress took it
into her head to sell him off before marry
ing, for which turpose she placed him in
the hands or a nem broker, to try and sell
him to some planter. This, of course, was
not tasteful to the slave. Having acquired
city habits, and run away from said broker,
he C4lllO to his mistress determined to re
monstrate and demand, aucordiug to our
slave statute, a license fbr three days to find
a minister iu the city. She would not grant
this just demand, from some particular
reasons, and ordered hint out of her pros
ewe, wnen the mulatto, who had prepared
himself with a poinard, stabbed her over
the right shoulder blade, severing the main
artery and causing almost instant death.
The fiend then went to her mother, and
stabbed her three times; directly he made
straight to Mrs. Chinchilla's room with the
intent of killing her also, when Mr. Chin
chilla threw himself between the asaassin
and her, received a dangerous wound, there
by saving her life. His blood thirst being
satisfied, he run down stairs, and us the
doorkeeper tried to prevent his going out of
the house wounded him on the shoulder.
The alarm being given, he was chased and
caught, a short distance off, and taken to
jail where he oonfomod his guilt, awl ap
peared perfectly resolved to meet the worst
tine. All the other parties wounded are
doing well. It is the general impression
that he will not be condemned to death, as
there are good grounds for a smart lawyer
to plead. The following (Illy another holy

in the early part of lstlC, as follows :

studying law with Colonel Page ; knew you
when you were a vilent Jackson, anti-bank,
anti-Whig, anti-Clay, and a strong Calhoun
and pro-slavery man, of the most copper
head kind ; I knew you when you were one
of Fanny Wright's followers—an atheist of
the most "damnable kind ; 1 knew you
when you were leader of the Philadelphia
church burners in 1844—yourself and Lewis
C. Levin ; I knew you when you wanted to
burn down churches that your father wor
shipped at, and where you received your
name at the baptismal font. All this you
would have done, were it not for the gallant
few, General Patterson, General Cadwala

last, not least, Colonel DuSolle, all Protes

Where ! oh where I is joy for we?
Weeping, lonely, she has left me here ;
Weeping, louefy, for my mother dear,

Place it at my grave for toe."
Dearest mother, I am sighing,
On thy tomb I drop a tear,
For the little plant is dying ;
Now I feel so lonely here.

It is wonderful with what unanimity the
Radicals everywhere now agree upon the
necessity of nominating General Grant for
the Presidency. A month ago, and before
the •"Manhood Suffrage" party could be
made believe that their pet idea of negro
equality and suffrage would he repudiated
by the States of Ohio and Pennsylvania,
they were not prepared to take "a pig in a
poke," as they called it, but rather favored
the nomination of a thorough-bred Radical
like Stevens, or Kelley, or Sumner, or Wade
—drunken Ben. Wade, we wean—in order
to ()tunnel the people of the North, as well
as the South, to submit to negro rule. The
late elections have convinced the wire-pull
ers that they are on the wrong track, so they
gracefully veer around in the face of the
wind, and run off before it, with a certainty,
as they think, of making that haven towards
which all politicians turn their longing eyes,
success. In order to do so the more effect
ually, they make a ware-goat of, and bawl,
lustily for the man who, of all others, they
would not have chosen one month ago. If
anything more was requirid by the people o_
convince them that the Republican leaders
think more of power and patronage than
they do of the prosperity and elevation of
the country, this last dodge should be suffi
cient. Let the people take this matter of
l'ruaident•making out of the hands of such
miserable pettifogging politicians as Bill
Mann and others of his ilk in this city.—

On the evening of the late election, when
it wiei discovered that the people had re

fear was manifested by the denizens of the
Gin Palace and the proprietors of the Radi

scious of their deserts and naturally cow
ards, did not venture upon the public streets
unlve accompanied at a safe distance by a
police officer. The Arorth Auterkon, edited
by that ' 'good old man,' ' Mayor McMichael,
was protected by the energetic Goldey and a
squad of his officers, and it was amusing to
witness the "fear and trembling" of the
great American fisherman and his aids,
when they heard the triumphant mareh

an outraged people, on the principle that
"conscience makes cowards of us all ;" but
lie need not have feared, the men who qui

his foul sheet for six long years, could nut be
recompeneed by game so small. With
them, "the hour or victory was the hour of
magnanimity." Rut hew was it throe years
ago? Who ("AMC to the pr eectioa of the

custom has pieced upon liberal education,
such as it is to beeabtained only in the

seems to be a prevailing scepticism in the
minds of the majority of men respecting
the propriety and necessity of highly edu.

verses in Latin hexameters. At that time

The West, which often before has been
the pioneer in the march of social progress
has taken the initiatory step towards for-
warding the liberal educational interests in
regard to women. Mr. Childs, of the Muth

by presenting to that body a bill to establish
an institution of learning to be called the
Michigan reinale College. The government
of the school is to be vested in the Board
of Regents of the University. They are
empowered to receive proposals for the do.
nation of suitable lands with building, or
with the means of erecting buildings as
Lansing. The site ehall not contain less
than twenty acres, and the buildings, or
their equivalent in nione, shall amount in
value tutifty thousand dollars. The college
is to furnish the young women of that State
with the means of acquiring a thorough
knowledge of the various brunches of liter

ten dollars. Those from that State who de•
