.INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE; WO
extract thil following letter from the
New York Ledger, of October 20th,
LEDGER OFFICE, N. Y., Sept. 3,1860.
DEAR SIR. :—I. am about commencing
in the Ledger a series of sketches of em
inent statesmen. I wish to begin with
Mr. Lowndes, the distinguished South
Carolinian. I have been informed that
at the time you entered Congress, a young
man, in December, 1821, you became
very intimate with him. Will you be
kind enough to communicate for the ben
efit of the readers of the „Ledger your
recollections of thernan as you knew him
at that time ?
' : y respectfully yours,
WASIIINGYON, Bth Sept., 1860.
MY DEAR SIR :- . I have received your
favor of the 3d instant, and shall most
cheerfully comply with your request and
furnish you a sketh of the life of William
Lowndes, as soon as possible. He was
one of the greatest, wisest and purest
statesmen that have ever adorned our
country, and yet his memory has been
sadly neglected. The truth is that my
public duties occupy my whole time at
present. I had hoped "I might enjoy
some leisure after the adjournment of
Congress, but in this I have been dis
ppointed. If not before, I hope to foci
ish you the sketch soon after the 4th of
March. This from me will be a tribute
not only to justice but to gratitude.
`ours very respectfully,
JAMES BUCHANAN.. ,
ROBERT BONNER, Esquire.
A TOUCHING APPEAL. --P olieeman,
spare that dog, touch not a single hair;
he worries many a hog, from out his
muddy - lair. Oh, when he was a pup, so
frisky and so plump, he lapped his milk
from a cup, when hungry—at a jump,--
And then his funny tricks, so funny in
their place, so full of canine hells r upon
your hands and face. You will surely
let him live Oh, do not kill him—dead;

—not lead. Go, get thO muzzle now,
and put upon his mouth, and stop that
bow, bow, bow! and tendency to drouth.
He is your children's pet, companion of
their joy ; you will not kill him yet, and
thus their hopes destroy. No, police
man, spare that pup, touch not a single
hair; oh, put your pistol up, and go

BLcumnes LAST PERFORMANCE.—The
Buflhlo Commercial Advertiser thus de
scribes the last performance of the little
acrobat, at Niagara Falls: "In a few
minutes, the little man was seen coming
toward America, attached to a heavy,
lumbering chair. .When about a third
of the way out, he placed the chair upon
the 'rope and seated himself thereon,
cro• sed his legs, and gazed around with
apparent unconcern. Be then adjusted
two legs of the chair on the cable, and
again seated himself. Coming nearer to
the American shore, he again stopped
'and sat down ; and then got up and
stood in thechair:l When we consider
that this is done on a single cable stretch
at a height of more than 200 feet over

rents in the world, it seems absolutely
air Mrs. Hoey, the leading actress at
Wallack's theatre, New York, after ri
ding home on Friday night, left a jewel
case, containing $l5OO worth of articles,
in the carriage. The driver and his
friends got merry and distributed the
jewelry among their female relatives, but
on Saturday were compelled to resto re
it, and were locked up for theft.
A MATRIMONIAL SWINDLER.—The Sa
line Herald, published at Arrow Rock,
Mo., on the 25 of September, gives a de
tailed account of the " systematic
schemes of villainy" practiced upon a
widow lady of that place by a Baltimore
man named O'Chamberlain, a tailor by
trade. It appears from the statement
that about fifteen months ago Chamber
lain located in Arrow Rock, opened a
shop, and done a good business. He be
came acquainted with a very respectable
widow lady, and married her. Under
pretence of going to St. Louis to pur
chase an additional stock of goods, he
succeeded in getting about $3,000 from
his wife, in addition to other moneys be
fore obtained from the same source. He
departed,and has not been heard of since,
Chamberlain is about thirty-five years
old,,weighs about one hundred and eighty
pounds, inclined to corpulency—rather
" pursey "—about five feet eight inches
high, gray hair, blue eyes, deep set in
head, usually very neat and precise in his
dress, and is rather retired in his manner.
GOT OREATED.—The Aroostook Her
ald says : We heard a conversation the
other day between a Breckinridge man
and an old Democrat, who avowed his
intention of voting for Lincoln. "I've
always been a Democat, and I've been
reading and studying, and I have come to
the conclusion that the Democratic
party do'nt stand where it did 1850, and
I'm going to vote for 'Honest Old
" Yes, and get cheated," says the
" Well," coolly replied the other, "I
voted for Piei:ce and for Buchanan, and
got cheated both times, and I do'nt feel

Republicans, as all the time by the Dem

DEATH OF TWO BROTHERS AT THE SAM I
TlME.—Morris 'Holstead, the youngest
son of the late John P. Holstead, of Vi
enna, died in that town last Wednesday,
aged 22 years. A few hours after his
death, news were received by the rela
tives of the deceased, that his eldest
brother, Nelson , Holstead, died a few
hours previous, at his residence in Ma.
ison county, near New Boston. Nels..
H. was some 51 , years of age. The ~.
mains were brought to Vienna for int r
ment, and the funeral of both took place
at McConnelsville, Friday, at 2 P. .1 ~
and Was largely attended. It was a s 1.

FATAL INFLIJENCE.—The wife of the
Austrian General Enyatteu, who com

gigantic frauds during the late Italian
war, was lately sentenced to Wee years

of depredation. In consideration of her
children, her sentence was commuted to

PERFUMERY IN OffURCII.-A lady writes:
"I am sorry to be obliged to appeal to
the power of the press for the correction
of an evil so small. in the eyes—and in
the noses, too, of some—as 'church per :
fernery' But realiyi Mr. Editor, it makes

system too—l shall-haVe to quit-my pew.
Do speak to the ladie.son this spbjec't
before next Sunday ; remind them, and
some of ihe beaux, too; that of all smells
no smell is the best smell."
To CLEAN FRENCII KID Ow - vim—Put
the gloves on your hand and wash them,
as if you were washing your hands, in
some spirits of turpentine, until quite
clean ; then hang them np in a warm
,place, or where there is a current of air,
and all smell of the turpentine will be re.
moved. Or else wash them with soap
and water, then stretch them on wooden
hands, or pull them- into shape without
wringing them ; next rub them with pipe
clay, or yellow ochre, or a mixture of the
two in any required shade, made into
paste with beer ; let them dry gradually,
and, when about half dry, rub them well,
so as to smooth them and put them into
shape ; then dry them, brush out the su
perfluous color, corer them with paper,
and smooth with a warm iron. Other
colors may be employed to mix with the
pipe clay besides the yellow ochre. To
dry clean gloves, lay, them out flat; then
rub into them a mixture of finely.pow
dered fullers'-earth and alum ; sweep it
off with a brush, sprinkle them with dry
bran and whiting, lastly dust them well.
This will not do if they are very dirty.
How TO Al ARE SIIGAR ICING FOR CAKES.
—Beat one pound of refined sugar and
one ounce of fine starch, or arrowroot;
sift it together through a fine sieve.—
Then beat the whites of two full sized
eggs, or three small ones, till they are
perfectly fluid. Beat in the sugar a lit
tle at a time, and when it is all thus put
in, pound it well together for some time.
Then spread it evenly over your cake
with a broad flat knife. If
. yon put it on
the moment the cake comes out of the
oven, it will generally harden by the
time'the cake is cool. If you wish to ice
a cake already baked, it must be placed
for.a short time in the• oven.- For buns,
the tops of pies, tarts, &c., it will be suf
ficient to besmear them with beaten
white of egg, and sift a little tnely pow
dered sugar over them.
A 'roman ME:AL.—Daring the building
of the new State House, at Columbus,
S. C., General Jones had the letting of
the various contracts for the building,
and among the rest was one for heating
the building. Almost the first appli

"There is what is done, and you can
