Previous to Saturday, however, the See. rotary of iho Treasury in reply to cot lain in. lerrogatorics, had sen, to Iho Committee a voluminous communication, accompanping which weic sundry letters from the Cashiers of liariks.&c. As I understand this eommu-j location, it is a labored argument to prove lhal a numerous class of agents tcsido at or visit Washington. Some" as land agents; somu uiiilcr tho French and other treaties; some, as pension agents, and Mr. Whitney as the agent of the deposile banks; that all these agents aro courteously eceived , and that it is doe lo them generally to say, thai llieir conduct is decorous and proper. There arc, however, exceptions referred to by ihe Sccietary among tho pension and land agents. Great frauds, ho says, have been commuted in these departments, and then ho enters into some particulars, for what rca. sou God only knows, unless it he to give un necessary pain lo llioso who were connected hy the most endearing lies with the perpetra tors of a portion of these crimes. Why ihoso details are introduced, or what connexion Ihey can havo with Mr 1 Whitney's case, I am unable to imagine. They may lend to be wilder, but they cannot enlighten a muddlo headed man.

All "proper officers" were not "engaged to keep order," tho audience taking the negative princi ple a a License created ns great disorder as possible, supplying tlie deficiency of an orchestra; and as Orpheus is said to have made trees dance to his melody, these gra tuitous performers caused ihe benches to wallz to theirs, making it difficult for a stranger to determine in what part of the I heal re ihe tragedy was being enacted, or what part, of the drama produced the most effect.

I have kept sheep for fifty years, and never knew oftho ailment, which for want nf a known name, I hove called the Stretch until the introduction of the Merino Sheep; since introducing thcni into my flock, I have had more or less sheep every winter troubled .villi that complaint. I he sheep so attacked stretch themselves to Iho utmost, he down and rise up otten. re fuse all food, and generally die in from four to eight days. The complaint h most fre quent in hard winters, when they are kept long from the ground, but never to mv knowledge) occurs in the season of grass hence I was led to think it was caused by the bowels no' being sufficiently open if so the remedy was at hand. '1 he lasl win ler, being long and severe. I bad a number attacked with the complaint. In every case 1 turned down them a lable. spoonful of Castor Oil, and in every instance ihev were well nnd eating their fodder in a few hours, nnd I lost not a single sheep. Thn winter I have had one attacked nnd applied llio remedy with tho like effect. Should others have sheep so attacked. T advise them to try tho remedy, and I doubt, not they will find tho like benefit. Ft.ocii Trade.
