Hi* interesting news Ixing acknowledged | with: "Dear Berkeley: livery dog has his: day. Dorset." Mr. Kendall, sometime l"n-j cle Sam's Postmaster tlencral, w anting some information nv to the source of a river, sent the following note to a village postmaster: su : J'his Department is desirous to know liow lilt tfir- 1 onihejhcc river runs up.?lie- ' pert fully. ynur?,&c." By return mail ramp: . "Sir: The Tnmbigbcr <i - nut run up at all; it runs il.uvn. Very respectfully, yours, I vVr." Kendall, not appreciating his subor- i ' dinale's humor, wrote again: "Sir: Your appointment as postmaster is revoked; vou will turn over tin- funds, ,y. e., pertaining to j vour oflice to \our surrrssor." Not at all 1 disturbed by ibis summary dismissal, the ' postmaster replied: "sit; 'flip revenues of , this olliee tor the nuaiter ending September .:?> have been ninety-live cents ; its expenditure, same period, for talloiv candles and twine, el.o",. | trn-t my successor is instructed to adjust the balance." llis superior olliecr was piohuldv as much disgusted witli his precise correspondence as the American editor, who, writing to a Connecticut brother: "Send full particulars of the flood"? meaning an inundation at that place received h>r reply: "Yon will tind them in ( enesis." A good -peeimen of Ynnkee 1 brevity is the order received by a commissariat otlicer named Brown from a Colonel Boyd, which could scarcely have been couched in fewer words than : "Brown?beef? Boyd;" the < oloiicl receiving bis supplies with a note running : "lioyd? beef?Brown." Talleyrand acknowledged a pathetic letter from a lady friend announcing Iter w idowhood, with a note of two words: "Ifclas! Madame!" And when the easily consoled dame wrote not very long afterwards soliciting bis influence on behalf of all officer she was about to marry,lie merely replied : "Ho! bo! Madame!" More satisfactory to the recipient was J.ord llldoii's note to his friend l)r. Fisher, of the Charter-bouse: "Dear Fisher: I cannot, to-day, give you .the preferment for which vou ask. Ycur sincere friend. ? Fldon. (7<u? , I gave it you yesterday." l'lca- at to all parties concerned wi- the corn- pomichcc between the Archbii j "1 York ati< 1 the Lisle>p ol Cork: "Ih-ar Cork l'lease orilaiu Stanho|ie.? York.4' "Hear York: Stanhope is ordaiucd.? I 'oi k." When a member of |.or?l North's Administration, I on one night took the liberty of tvalkiug into one lobby while his chief went into the other. As lie sat on the Ministerial bench the next evening one of the doorkeepers handed him a note. I'pon opening it the rebellious politician read: "Sir, his Majesty h is thought proper to order a now Commission of the Treasury, in which 1 do not tind the name of < hark s James Fox.? North." Not more agreeable to the recipient was Ilenry Dnuiiiuond's answer to a letter asking him to join the advocates of the Maine liquor law. "Sir, 1 think the Maine liquor law perfc. 11 \ detestable, and will do my best to prevent its being adopted here. Yours, II. lirummoiid." As a rule, a man | with it evaiu e is too proud of bis wrongs to be 1 a onie, but bore is all exeeption to the rule: "Sir, 1 was a Lieutenant with (ieueral Stanhope when In- look Minorca in 170*, for which lie was made a lord. I was a Lieutenant with tii lid a 1 lilakeney when he lost Minorca in IT.'el, for which he w as made a lord. I am a Lieutenant still." Surely such an api>eal ought to have proved resistless, almost a- resistless a- that of the dying dramatist. "Hear Hob, I have not anything to leave thee to pcipetualc in\ memory but two helplcs. gills. Look upon tliein sometimes, and think of linn that was to the last moments of his life thine. -<L Farquhar."? C/idhiUr*' Join nut. .1. G. IbRRIS. bis 1 *!r,d.

Advancing years, sick neas, care, disappointJMiBf ment, and hereditary j> predisposition, all turn the hair gray, and either :. ih-ws the growth, and always surely restores its color, when faded or gray. It s'imulates the nutritive organs to healthy activity, and preserves hoth the hair and its beauty. Thus brushy, weak, or sickly hair becomes glossy, pliable, and strengthened; lost hair regrows with lively expression ; falling hair is cheeked and established ; thin hair thickens ; and faded or gtay hair resume their original color. Its operation is sure and harmless. It cures dandrutf, heals all humors, and keeps the scalp cool, clean, and soft?under which conditions diseases of the scalp are impossible. As a dressing for ladiea' hair, the Vtooa is praised for it,-, grateful and agreeable perfume, and valued for the soft lustre and richness ol tone it impai Is. Prepared by Dr. J.

Fur many years connected with the Anti Slavery Office in 1'hiiadelphtA. and Chairman of the Acting V igilant Committee of the Philadelphia Branch of the Fnderground Railroad, illustrated with 70 fine Engravings by Bensell, Schell, and others, and Portraits from Photographs from Life.

No one probably has had equal opportunities with yourself of listening to ihe narratives of fugitive slaves. No one will repeat thern more truthfully, and no stories can be more fraught with interest than theirs. From J. V. Mr Kim : A book so unique in kind, so startling in in f terest, ami so trustworthy in its statements, cannot fail to command a large reading now, aud in generations yet to come. 1 i Fiom Hon. Henry Wilson, l ire President You have done a good work. This 9tory of the heroic conduct of fugitives of oppression, and of tlie devotion of their* friends, will he read with deep interest, especially by the old friends of the slave in the stem struggle through I which we have pass d. I hope your labors will be rewarded by a grateful public. From Hon. Charles Sumner: The Fndergr ?und Railroad has performed its part, but it must always be remembered grate country. 1 cannot think of it without a throb* bins heart. You do well to commemorate those associated with it by service or by benefit?the saviours and the saved. From Horace Greeley: For most of the years i have lived, the escape i of fugitives from slavery, and their efforts to bailie the human and other bloodhounds who ; tracked them, formed the romance of American History 1 hat romance is now ended, and our I grandchildren will hardly believe its leading i incidents except on irresistible testimony.

Tub I'kIBNE gives ample t * space and most impartial record. Whatever 1' parties may propose, whatever political leaders , 11 may say. whatever officers may do. is fairly set u down in its columns, whether this news helps or 1 hinders its own views. Its readers have the s right to an honest statement of the facts ; and Nv this they always get. Hut as to its own political principles, The Tribune is of course, hereafter ns heret -fore, the champion of F.qual Rights, irrespective of ,? Race, Nativity, or Color. It stands ii flexibly f, by the Amendments for the pennant nt aeeuiily t, i of those Rights, which have been solemn^r in ?j corporated by the People, in the Constitution i t n the Tinted States. Independent of all political ti parties, it endea^yrs to treat them all with judi n cial fairness. It labors to purify the adminis ,, tration of Government, National, State, and H Municipal, ami whenever those in authority, .| whether in National, State, or Municipal affairs. / take the leed in this work, it will therein give q them its cordial support, Hut it can never he p the lervitor of arty political party , norVili it t| surrender or even waive its right to criticise and condemn what is wrong, and commend what is right in the ac ion of any parties or of any pub i lie men. * { Now, as always, Tut Tatar** labors with all its heart for the promotion of the great ma terial interests ot the country J he progress Nl of Invention and of l<ahor Saving, the develop 11 ment of our resources, the preservation of our w Land for the Landless and its rapid subjuga- 11 lion to human wants, the utilisation of our vast underlying Ores, the extension of the facilities ' ! for bringing Producer and Consumer nearer to , 0 gether?whatever tends to swell the ratios, ini crease the knowledge and better the condition of those devoted to Productive Industry tiuds mention and encouragement in our columns. I Tut Weeei.y Tkiblsk, now more than thirty I years old, has endeavored to keep up with the progress of the age in improvement and in en terprise. It devotes a large share ot its col uuius to Agriculture as the most essential and c general of human pursuits. It employs the p ablest and most successful cultivators to ,,'t f, forth in brief, clear essays their practical views i of the Farmer's work. It reports public dis | cussions which elucidate that work , gathers . from every source agricultural news, the re- ! ports of the latest experiments, the stories of ' the latest successes and failures, and whatever I may tend at once to better Agriculture, and to y commend it as the iirst and most important of . progressive Arts, based on natural scieuce. 1 ?im Weeei.y Tkibixb appeals also to Teach I ers, Students, and persons of inquiring minds, by the character of its Literary contents, which include reviews of all the works proceeding from the master minds of the Old or New World, with liberal extracts from those of especial interest. Imaginative Literature also ^ : claims attention, but in a subordinate degree. I "Home Interests" are discussed weekly by a v lady specially qualified to instruct and interest i her own sex, and the younger portion of the I other. No column is more eagerly sought or <1 perused with greater advantage and profit than < hers. The News of the Pay, elucidated by <1 I brief comments, is ho condensed that no I : reader can deem it diffuse, while given sufficiently in detail to satisfy the wants of the average reader. Selections are regularly made from the extensive Correspondent.; of Tin: r Haii.t Tribone from every country, and its editorials of more permanent value are here ? reproduced. In short. The Weeei.y Tkimi m ' commends itself to Millions by miniitering to , their intellectual wants more fully than they are met by any other journal, while if* regular reports of the Cattle, Country Produce, an J other Markets, wiil of themselves save the *' farmer who regularly notes them far more than 1 his journal a price. For the family circle of flat educated farmer f or artisan, Tint Wkkkly Tkibp.yk has no su- ll perior, as is proved by the hundreds of thou j * sand.i who, having read it from childhood, still n cherish and enjoy it in the prime and on the J down hill of lite. We respectfully urjp* those who know its worth to commend Tiik Wkkki.y 1 Tkibcnf. to their friends and neighbors. an l w.; 2 proffer it to clubs at prices which barely pay the cost of paper and prasswork. / TERMS OF TIIK WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
