A REMARKABLE STORY OF GARRK K. A Paris correspondent of the Boaton Travel ler writes as follows : The date of this letter ia enough to let yon know that Paris ia abandoned by the few thou sand people called '' everybody " All the beat writers of the press have flown with them The charming M. I.ugcne Gainot aend3 us weekly letters from one or another ??f the charming Tillages in the vicinity of Paris. In a letter from the Forest of Bondy he telU the following singular story, in exhibition of the wonderful pnwara of Garrick : The celebrated English actor. Garrick. made ? trip to Paris in 1757. when he was at the height of hia talents and fame. He did not, as many of oar artists do now, make the excur sion for th* purpose of speculation ; he did not coma to Paris to perform and make money Ha traveled for amusement, a mere tourist, anxious to visit a beautiful country which he might partly claim for his own. Tho family of tha English actor was of French origin ; they tied the country upon tha revocation of the edict of Nantes. In the uiail coach which bore him from London to Dover, Garrick found tor a fellow traveler Sir George Lewis, a gentleman he had met several times before in company, and had known for a constant frequenter at l>rury Lano Theatre. They took advantage of this casual encounter to improve their acquain tance ; each was delighted with tho other. Af ter crossing the channel togethor, they cama to Parii in the same vehicle, and when here they separated. Tho actor went to the houso of the fnands who were expectinghim. and Sir Ge<>rg? Lewis took up his lodgings in one of those splendid furnished houses of thet^uartier de la Ciiauss?o d'Antin. which then began to be a Tery fashionablo quarter of the town The two traveling companions had promised to s< e a great deal of each other during th?-ir stay in Paris, bu* the very different life cach of them led rendered it impossible for them to execute their resolutions. Sir George Lewis was a man l>etwoen forty-five and fifty years old. with a very singular face, whose irregular and prom inent features made his physiognomy most ec centric aud expressive. Daring the whole journey Garrick had ad luircd that countenance, thinking what an of lect it would produce on the stage Despite his ago?which should have cooled the ardor of his character, and have engaged him to abandon the follies of youth?Sir George Lewis lived in the midst of dissipation and pleasure. He had C'>uie to Paris to amuse himself by gaily spend ing a large legacy, unexpectedly bequeathed to him. lie was passionately fond of gaining, aud tha satisfaction of this passion led him into n very mixed oompany. as indeed are all c>m paaies where gambling is indulged, since these men are valued by the sum of money they are able or willing to stake on the cards?a test which allows many shaij>ers to slip in. The actor lived in a vory different sort of society, and during the four months of their stay in l'aria the two traveling companions scarcely met above two or three times. Just as he was about leaving for London. Garrick called ui"<0fl ?ir George Lewia, to bid him go ?d byo and in quire if ho had any commands for London To his horror he was informed that the unhappy gentleman had been assassinated the previous evening. His boly had been found that very morning in the Forest of Bondy, covered with wounds, and lying bathed in blood. De-ply touched, Garrick exerted himself to ascertain as much as possible of the details of this deplorable event He found that Sir George Lewis had been one of a party of pleasure to visit a chateau in the environs of Bondy, where a large company of sportsmen and gamblers were assembled. He intended to remain there some days. The first evening of his vieit he won a large sum of money at trie gaining table. In the afternoon of the second day he received a note from Paris, engaging him to a gallant rendezvous, and immediately on receipt of it, he bade adieu to the company. They tried to retain him, leas out of politeness, perhaps, than the desire of winning back the u?on?*y he had taken from them, and this dosire was so v?hc meiit as to carry them to the resolution of dis mounting his carriage. But Sir George Lewis was a man of will, and he determined to return to Paria on hor?-eback Ho leaped on his horse aud galloped away. Further than this Garrick eouid learn nothing The police ware inclined to believe the catastrophe one of the usual ad ventures then frequent in the forest of Bondy ; hut Garrick pointed out to them that Sir George 1 Lewis's pistols were found loaded and in his bolsters. and that while his purse had l?cen taken from hiui. his gold wuU-h. gold ouuff box, and diamond ring were found untouched. from which he concluded, firstly, that Sir G^.rge Lewis had not Lceu attacked by banditti, but by some acquaintance, who perfidiously took him off his guard . aud aoconulj, that the per sonal property lay untouched men-ly because the robber was afraid of compromising himseit Therefore the as.-as.ou wa? an acquaintance of Sir George Lewi*, and moved in tne social cir cle to which tho knight belonged, ihe soeicty assembled at the chateau was then secretly scanned by Garrick and the police, and sus picion alighted uj?"n an I taiian called the Chev alier Gaeian. Ihis Italian was proved to havo quitted the chateau shortly after Sir Gorge Lowis, and despite his explanation* he was ar rested ; but no direct evidence could be brought *gniii?t him. and the noble proprietor of the chateau, who was naturally very anxious that no such cloud a* a crimc should rest up?n hia ??friends,"' used every exertion to procure the liberation of the Italian. At the moment Garrick intervened. He bagged the police to allow him to make an ex periment which he declared was decisive. Gar rick. as every b <dy knows, was famous for his play of his feature ; he oould assume whatever countenance ho pleased Sir George Lewis had his portrait taken by Eaiour. and Garrick went to Latour s studio to study the portrait and " make up himself The police fetched the Italian from the jail and carried him. well es corted. to Sir Lewi* s rooms. I'neaav and per plexed at this move ;for he had been a visiter at Sir Georgo Lewis's house,) he questioned the police agent# what they were going to do with him No reply was made to his inquiries until they reached the de-eased s house, wheu the chief of the police taio: ?? Sir George Lewis i? not dead lie accuses you of attempting u> assassinate him 1 am going to Confront you both *' The Italian trembled, he could scarce ly ?peak. his confidence all forsook him He was carried into the room where Garrack stood; the great actor represented Sir George Lewis to the life ; he had his face, features, expres sion. gesture and it was in the very totie of the deceased knight Garrick exclaimed: '* You wreteh ' you assassin ! Do you dare deny your crime before me The Italian was thunder struck, and falling upon his knees, confessed hi? crime and prayed for mercy lie was hung National Pbodi i tio.ns.- Nations are char acterised not more by their people than by their other and inferior pro luctions.

We regard it as not seoond to any worldly purM,t, not second in dignity, in im portance and usefulness. Henoe we fee! that W u*SY0 a.r,?kt *? sPeak for farmer's sons. We sarin the outset that all people should l>c ?' aoatod. especially in a county like ours, where the people make the country, the law*, the customs, the states of society, and do every' thing that pertains to political government and social order, most especially should farmers' sons Reeducated. The times demands it; thecountry demands it. There are governmental abuses to reformed, there are questions of principle and political economy to settle. There are produ cing interests to be represented in the legisla tive nails. There are real estate laws, boundary laws, lhat affect almost wholly the farmer and his family. Then there are the great commer cial interests of the country and everything that relates to improvement in travel and trade, all of which vitally concern the farmer. There are tax laws, the school laws, the laws directing the p >ace and order of society ; there is the conduct i{ 'he State and county government. JIow shall these things bo rightly attended to so as not to jeopardize tho farmer's interests ' Professional politicians are dangerous. Wo do not need a horde of hungry politicians to g" around every office liko eagles around a carcass. We want the people educated in all the great dnties ot life.?educated to bo wise, jmicions, calm, high-minded-educated to lot 0 theoountry and honor it with virtuous and die nified lives?educated to believe as the first ar ticle ot theircreed, "that righteousness exaltoth a nation. A people educated will have a knowledge of politic* equal to any emergency ur fathers were not professional politicians, and they framod a government wiser than tho w .rid ever saw. They knew what they needed, it the people are wisely educated they will know enough of politics. Wo want to raise our presidents, governors, legislators, judges, and tore'go ministers on our tarms. We want to quality farmers1 sons for those p-sts ofdutv. \ c want at least to have the farmers completely represented in every legislature in the country. >> e want the whole governing p ower made up from tho whole producting classes. They are the soul and body ot thecountry. and farmers come in for a large ?'hare of representation We want speakers, writers, editors, thiukers. actors, polished, high soulod. gentlemanly men from the heartof the farmers family. Sh;?l! we have u farmers.

As it is. there is only here andthere one educationally qualified to Co or serve his country in any way. Let us have farmers sons educated and we can usher in a new order of things in the management of our government. But it is not for political objects only that wo would have farmers sons educated. It i.s for their own good, that they may conduct thoir business with the strength and wisdom of educa ted minds, rear their tHinilies intelligently, and surround them with tho comforts, opportunities, and excellencies of educated and refined soeic J' V'"7thlIJ? ln ?ur day calls for the educa tion of farmers sons.

It is become a necessity that the farmer should be a scientific man. and possess a cultivated, well-informed mind.

Good rou a It amy Lav ?Our friend Beard, o. Cincinnati, the artist, has invented a plan to s op tnat most inconvenient and unpunishable crime?umbrella thcfi: which we intend to ui.ike gublic. at the ri?k of violating ihe patent laws We will tell the s'ory at he related it. ?1 had just bought a hue silk umbrella, and started tor the Burnett House on a rainy day when I began to reflect upon my extravagance, and u> wonder, as I tripped along proudly under tts broad and safe cover, whether or not it would go the way of all umbrellas, and leave me to the ? pitiless peltings of the storm" before the day was over. True, I could keep it ?u my nan I but then I was occasionally so absent minded that I would be just as apt to set it down in a public bar-room, or oven to have it taken quietly out ot my hand by some adroit r/i vain , ,l uuhtUrte. I felt eoneerned. Sud denly an idea occurred I stepped into a hard ware _e tore and purchased a small padlock. On arriving at the hotel I closed my umbrftia, dipped the lock on to the wire spring which koepj it shut, and deposited it with perfect con fidence in the public rack. I wns not Ion-,- wait ing f ?r a customer. A splendid-looking fellow, with a goatee and mustache, (you see his like ness as Augustus Tomiinson when my picture of l'.iul Clifford is exhibited.) ?tep|>cd up with the most perfect tionrJutlaure and took mu nl'ntiml umbrella. I quietly sauntered to wards the door, giving a casual glance at tho weather; my hero endeavored, to spread tho sheltering silk; but alas* it was no go?again ' ??'" w"r-,e ^ hat the deuce was tne matter' Ho looked?saw the trap, and the fall in his countenance was exactly that step the sublime to the ridiculous I had so often heard of hut nev?r wpti before. .My umbrella was quietly deposited in its p!a-'c, and my gentleman meekly sauntered to w ?rds the reading room, and t k pped out of an other door umbrellaless. I was by no means satisfied with one experi ment. In a little while I saw one of tho most brazen appropriations of smnll things (he was especially hard on lunches and drinks?free) in all Cincinnati. " Now,' said I, 4* is my change." This customer had an article in his hand which might in courtesy be styled the " ghost of an umbrella," and cotton at that. With a grandiloquent air he deposited it right along side of mine, and went to the bar There ho picked Bp a treat (it was eloction time.) and eat crackers and eheese enormously. Thence to the reading-room, with my eye still on him, and in less than a minute, with a shrug, and buturning up his coat an extra button, he passed in a rapid business manner to the door, picking up my umbrella, with scarcely a clanco| as he went along. I was on hand. With a sudden movement he attempts to raise it; no go! Again! still a failure. With a decision |?*rfeetly Napoleonic, and worthy of tho occa sion, he was about to tear away the slight ob struction, when I stepped up and said : Don t do that ! J // Irttrf yon the /'cy Ah .Mr. Beard. Ha! ha! Strange mis t?ke7thouKht it was my own ; %good device; devilish good ' Think I'll adopt it." And with tho most perfect case he put my umbrella down, took bis own. and vamottd I was satisfied. I had found oat how to keen an umbrella, and now I am on my way to W ashing ton to get a patent for it. lHT A new coek every month is no nnnmial av erage for seven familie* out of ten In reply to oiu asking, on one occasion, why It was not ad verted that employers must bring reference* a llilierniaa replied?'
