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, ROBERT BONNER President BUCHANAN 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.. , t), 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; be wags his narrative, and prays for life —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 away from there 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 one of the most fearful chasms and tor rents in the world, it seems absolutely miraculous. 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 Abe.'" " Yes, and get cheated," says the Hunker " Well," coolly replied the other, "I voted for Piei:ce and for Buchanan, and got cheated both times, and I do'nt feel like being humbugged the third time.— I had as lief be cheated once by the Republicans, as all the time by the Dem ocrats." A few weeks ago a highly respected citizen of Sussex county, N.J. was at.. rested for an assault committed on a neighbor. The grand jury found a bill against him for an assault with an intent to kill, which so affected him, when he was informed of it, that he blew out his 'brains. THE SLAYS Or HER OWN Sox.—The following memorandum is . supplied to . the Census Office by Mr. Moreno, who took the census of a portion of Florida : Among the slave inhabitants enumerated 1 have found but one in my, district whose age exceeds one hundred years.— his person is a negress named Cornelia Leslie. She informs me that she is one hundred and twenty-five years of age.— She was born in the State of Georgia, at a place milled Silver Bluff; has a distinct recollection of the war of Revolution, and remembers the seige of Savannah in 1.778, when the city was taken by the British. This woman, althoutl so fa advanced in years, is remarkably hes thy and strong, and walks half a mil • regularly every'Sunday to attend•churc She is the slave of her own son, who i: a free negro. 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 t at McConnelsville, Friday, at 2 P. .1 ~ and Was largely attended. It was a s 1. emn and impressive scene. FATAL INFLIJENCE.—The wife of the Austrian General Enyatteu, who com mitted suicide upon the discovery of his gigantic frauds during the late Italian war, was lately sentenced to Wee years hard labor, her extravagent habits hav ing encouraged her husband in his 'acts of depredation. In consideration of her children, her sentence was commuted to .three months, imprisonment„ and the baroness, is now serving out her,impris onment. 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 me sick—it upseti inybrain and nervous 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 cant after it was known, was an old gen tleman, a thorough-bred Englisher, who addressed the General, while he was somewhat busily engaged with some areh- Recta as follows : "General, I hunderstand you 'aye the letting hof the contract for 'eating the State 'Ouse, and I desire to get the job." The Generalipointing to the building) answered, blandly, as follows : "There is what is done, and you can eat just as much as you want of it." The old gentleman never began the job. How TO Even NAMES ON BrEEL.—First cover the part. on which you wish to write with varnish, made by mixing lampblack with turpentine varnish.— When it is thoroughly dry, etch in your name with some pointed instrument; then place a wall of wax round the in scription, and pour on some diluted aqua fortis, which will " bite " the inscrip tion to a depth proportioned to the length of time the acid is - allowed to re main upon it. Remove it, wash the face with cold water, take off the walling, and L ea MIC! TO RENDER BOOTS AND BD • ' WATER-PROOF.--,-LinSee& oil, one pint yellow wax, quarter of a pound. Place these in an earthen crock, mid melt theni together with a gentle heat, then add a quarter of a pint of oil of terpen tine: When the boots or shoes are well cleaned make them thoroughly warm, warm the mixture also, and rub it well Into the leather before the fire. Let them -stand-by a few-days before you use them. t a y Last Sunday evening about 9 o'clock a young and lovely girt in Cincin nati, while sitting in her parlor convers ing with some acquaintanCes, suddenly fell from her' clidir, in consequence, as it soon appeared, of a heavy dose of lauds. num,which she bad taken.for the purpose of suicide, and sat down to await its ef fects among her friends I The cause was a recent quarrel with her lover, who had 'said in anger tharlie would never see 'her again. -A stomach` pump reliev ed her of thedoise, and slie was soon con valescent: or Governor AshbeL.P. Willard of Indiana died of consumption, at St. Paul;, Minnesota `on: the' 4th inst. - The Gov ernor was a warm friend of Mr.Pouglas,, and - will , he remembered as - the hrothi,6 in-law of John E Cook, who was 'natio ted r at Harpers reeryin i s an aliettar of Johirßkii, the insarrecti At'." A' • 4.. Terns, One 2Dicala,r a "Year_ How, ram G . aOW Itica=abe specu lations on the Pennsylvania Railroad have been more extensive than the offi cers of the Company are willing to mit, The probabiliti. of the investigation will . never be made public. It is said that one conductor disgorged $25,500 and another $15,000. The faro bank, however, has swallowed up most of the plunder. A•Pittsburg paper says, that, "during the investiga tion one man who is reported to have amassed a large fortune on the road, when asked by the committee bow, with a salary of but $6O a month, he lid con trived in a few years to accumulate $35,- 000, his answer "was that, as soon as the party who put the question, and who Is said to be worth $300,000 himself, would explain how he made his money, be would give a satisfactory reply. The question was not pressed further, and the conductor left the stand still master of his $35,000 secret. The whole num ber of delinquent conductors thus far discovered is twenty-one " HEBREW WOMEN.- Ile Hebrew wom an in her love for her kindred soars above her Christian sisters. The tender devotions which the daughters of I*A bestow upon their parents, especially on their fathers, ipfull of beauty and pathos. In the dark alleys of the World's ghetti, when the Hebrew man toddles home from his daily strife with prejudice and lucre, a wondrous change tranpforma his face as he crosses the thresh9ld . of his weather-beaten house. The furtfre expands, the crooked gait ,is made straight, the many wrinkles of Ilia brow are made smooth, the crouching form of the peddler'disaPpears; and the 91;1 man stands erect as if he were worthy 'of bet ter things ;.the smile loses its sinister grin, and is.clot bed with genial beauty. Rebecca Lai kissed.qwv the pglinpm,of the money changer, and to see him sit down at his table,after having sent up to Jehovah a prayer for good luck and a plenty of gain for the coming day,,and chat with iris daughter, who delights in humoring his jokes, is a treat for an artist in search for the picturesque, or for a poet in quest of the romantic. 'The health of an English having somewhat declined, he called in a medical man, who at once pat him on low diet. After a few visits, the doctor found his patient so far improved as to warrant his taking something more sub stantial, and he accordingly ordered him a little animal food once or twice a day. The wife said nothing; hot no sooner had the doctor departed than she bolted out of the house, and shouted to a neigh bor : "What do you think they've ordered for our John to eat now? Aniroakfood I" "A very good thing, too, replied the Leighbor. In a passion the tomer exclaimed : "Why, you're as bad as them. How it likely our John can eat 'hay and aw and such , like stuff. Besides, he s no teeth. NIGHT Aza.--Many people are afraid o night air. ilere is what Florence IS ghtingale says :, "An extraordinary I lacy is the dread of night ail'. What a' can we breathe at night but night a; ? The choice is between pure night air from within. Most people prefer the latter—an unaccountable preference.— What will they say if it is proved to be true that fully one•half of all the diseases we stiffer from are occasioned by 'persons 1 , -leeping with, their windows shut? An . 'en window most . nights in Ole year o never hurt any one. In great cities ht air is often the best and purest air , be found in the twenty-four hours.
