IVaxhy. (From the Toledo | The A tiniest a Proposition—The inhabitants of the Crass Knuds made the Victims of a Cruet mul Heartless Hoax. - Confkdkit X Hoads, I (wicli is iu the Stait uv Kentucky, > December 3, I860. ) 1 never was so elevated nor never so cast down ii my life ez larst uite, and the entire Korners wuz ditto. The circumstances of the kase wuz ez follers: Me and a party uv frends ivuzaplayiu draw poker with a Noo York ccuimershel traveller, 1 believe they a call ’em, so,—a feller w Itli a mushtash aud side whiskers, wick cotno South a talkin secesli aud a selliu goods. He made some inquiries about the staudiu of the deelers at tile Korners, and wuz alter Bed inquiries eggstremely ankslms to sell 'em goods for cash. They wauled ’em on ninety days’ lime, aud on this they split. He agreed with ’em iu principle—he drank to Jeff. Davis aud dammed Lincoln flouently hut on the cash question was inflexible aud immova ble. 'To while away the rosy hours, a knot uv choice spirits, him iuelooded, gathered ill the i*ost Ortis to eujoy a game of draw poker.— There wuz me aud Squire Oavitt, and the Noo York drummer. We plade til after the wacli ■ u hours uv 13 M., when graveyards \ awn and gliosis troop forth—when tile Noo Yorker suc ciimd. His innocent, unseasoned bowels hed not bin eddicated up to the standard uv Ken tucky whiskey, wicli new oz we drink it is p> r.eu to foreigners. The Deekiu and Elder grab bed the stages wieh wuz onto the table, aud rilled his pockets on the ’spisheu that lie wuz a Ablishnest, and rolled him out, and while iu the very act, Pollock, the JUiuoy store koeper, cum rushin in, askin et we’d heard the nUae. We answered yoouaunymuflly that we hed not. 1 in just from isuisvme, scout, lpsiruae over from the stashen. I.uisville is in a blaze ‘'^Vat/' set I, hez Sumner killed Thad Stev ens and immejitly kommitted sooicide?” “Nary,”sez he, “but Johnson and Congress hev cum together on the basis uv yoouiversal Amnesty, wich wuz proclaimed yesterday, to bo follered by yoouiversal suffrage ez soon ez the South ken konveniently do it. They hev met and embraced on Horace Greeley’s plan.” Deekin Pogram bugst into a historical hiff and in his joy handed me the proceeds uv his exploration uv the pockets uv tho New York er, and like a blessed old lunatyc broak lor the meeting house'. In a inomint or 2 the bell peeled forth its joyus notes, and in a minute more the half-dressed villagers were seen emerging ffum their respective domiciles in ail stiles uv attire. A lew uiinits sufficed to make them understand wat waz the occasion uv the uproar, and a more entliewsiastic populashun never woke the akboes. Afore five uiinits hed rolled off iutu eternity, there waz a bonfire blaziii on the north side uv the square, the sed bonfire being a nigger sknle house, wicli the ifreedmeu’s Coiuisbeu hed erected, and wicli out enthusiastic citizens in their delirium of joy set fire tu. It waz emblematic. The smoke as it rolled to the South metliawt assumed the shape uv a olive branch—the cry uv the nig ger children wich coodent escape, symbolized their deserted eondishen, and the smell uv ’em ez they roasted was like unto incense, grateful to our nostrils. A informal meetin waz to wuust organized by the lite uv the burning skule house, to wich Deekin Pugraiu addressed liisself. He remark ed that this waz a solemn oceashun, so solemn indeed that lie felt inadekate to express the feelins wich filled him. His mouth wuzu’thig enough to give vent to his sole, though ef he didn’t he’d bust. “What are we met tor to-uite, niv friends?” Bed he, “wat calls us together?— Wherefore these sounds uv joy—wherefore this fire, and wherefore is Bascom selling li quor at halt'price? Becoz wt are rehabilitat ed—that’s what we are. Becoz the North has gone iutu the olive branch bizness agin, we hev wuust more our rites. We are amnestied We kin vote—we kin go to Congress—we are agin oitizDiis uv the great republic—” Pollock, the lllinoy store-keeper, riz and begged permission to say a word. He protest ed agin these dolus. He understood akkordin to Horris Greeley’s plan, that yuniversal suf frage waz to follow yuniversal amnesty—why then this makin John Rodgerses uv the nig gers? Waz the South a goiu to act in good faith? Dcckiu Pogram replied—The South never yet broke plited faith save when they cood make suthiu by so dooiu. At tbis presuut jnnktoor uv affairs he presoomed the South would extend, uot precisely universal suffridge to the niggers, but the way wood he opened to them. Such a mass ov ignerance could never he trusted with the ballot without preparation, and to prepare them would lie aoverturniu the Kentucky theory tliet the uiggarisa heest, and tlie Northern Deiuokratic idea that the nigger was cust by Noar and doomed forever to lie a slave. Inc gentleman from illinoi wiJltowunst pur sue ve the phix we ar iu. Tlia ant phit for the ballot now, aud if we can make em so, it over turns our theory, which we kant do. Still we propose to be just to uni. We shel give sich ov em the ballot as are sufficiently intelligent, and we shel not put the standard too high nyther. We shell give every one of em the ballot who is able to reedtbe Greek testament fiooeutly and pass a kreditable examination in Latin, embro idery, French, German, English grammer and double-entry liook-keepiu. The path to the poles you see is open to em Uv koarse we kant be expected to tolerate school-bowses for em, koz that would raise em above their nor mal condition. A Iso there must be proper regulations con trolling ein, for, my deer sur. they are mere in fauts, and their totter in steps on the road to freedom need" directiu. Society is a compro mise in which every one resigns ez much uv his personal liberty as the good of the hul may demand. We count ourselves the hul, aud the resiguin uv persnel liberty must come from them. “That nigger,” said he, pinting to one whitcli the joyous citizens was stringing up to lluscom’s sign post, “that nigger is a-resinin his persnel freedom for the good of tfoe hull. No doubt in his heart he murmurs, and ef the kord which is cliokiu him cood be loosened he would repine. It is rough ou him, hut the su periority of the kawkassliun race must he—iuy God! it’s one of my uiggurs! Stop, Bascom, stop!” ejackulated the Deekin; hut it was too late. The nigger was already black in the face and had ceased to kick, aud the Deekin, heav in a sigh, perceeded. We shel scroopulously regard their rib's.— They shel hev the rite to buy land, and be in all respecks like us, ez soon ez they kin be trusted. Till then they will hev to lie restrain ed. There must be laws prohibiting em from receiving more thau $4.50 per month, that they may not become bloated aristocrats and pam pered sons of luxury-the pr »per development of this country—and likewise the payment of the Confedrtt debt requires manual label-, wich we were never edjucated to do, and therefore the good of the whole requires that they shel resine their persnel liberty so far iw to lie con fined to the plantashuns onto wich they hev en gaged to labor, that they may relijusly do it, wich is decry uessary, lor yoo see ef I hire a nigger in Janooary I must not he exposed to the chances of his quittiu me in July. But wat more kin they want? They are free to as grate a extent as the good of sosiety will permit. We shel give em qualified suffrage, fixin, of course, wich is just, the qualifications ourselves, and bein valyooable members of sosiety, hereafter we shel care fur em, so long ea they are healthy —good Lord, why will them cnasess persist in hangin up able-bodied niggers when there’s so many old ones around, good for nothin but to celebrate with,” and to save another wuu uv his former servants, the D< ekiu closed abrupt ly It is unnecessary to recount the further doins ov the nite. There wuz a school-house and church, recently erected, burned, with some wich wuz too young tube uv any yoose,save one girl, wich wuz uearly white and almost fifteen, wich ought to hev bin |re»kood, and five, ef I counted cori-ectly, able-bodied men and wimen wuz hung. Bascom sold out his stock entire ly, and by three A. M. the entire inhabitants uv the Corners wuz a layin around the square, in toons. There wuz a bitter awakeuin to this scene uv festivity. At a little after 7, while the Deekin, the Elder and myself, wuz in Bascom’s tryin to git an assuager, aud the best we cood do wuz to pour a quart ov water into a barrel which lied bin emptied, and roll it around and thus flavor it, Captin McPelter lute uv Morgan’s cavalry, cum in from Louisville. Eagerly we asked him the confirmation uv the tidings, when he informed us that it was a hoax—that no such thing had been done, not wuz Congress in any sich a nosheu. Pollock dropped iu and when 1 reproached him with his dooplicity, he answered that it wuz a hoax, but he hoped we’d excuse him.— He had a craving desire to see whether ef Am nesty and suffrage shood be adopted, how fur we’d go iu the latter direction. He wuz satis fied, and honestly, hoped we forgive him the pleasant jest. Hed made the Corners lively one nite anyhow. 1 wuz too profoundly dis * gusted to reply to the wretch. Petroleum V. Nasby, p. m., (which is Postmaste’r.) History of a Marshal of France. A shoeing-smith of Dijon, M. Vaillant, having written to the Marshal of France of the same name to know if they were not related, the latter has replied in an interesting letter, giv ing such particulars as he knows of his ances try , i n oruer to assist the writer in his research es. After referring to his deceased parents, the Marshal concludes thus: “I entered the Polytechnic School at sixteen, and on leaving it joined the corps of Engineers. The promo tion from which I experienced the greatest pleasure in the whole course of my career was that ol corporal at the school. 1 went through the Russian campaign and that of 1815. I was made prisoner at the end of 181:1. I was at Waterloo, and wounded in the defence of Par is in 1815. 1 had my leg laid open by a shell at Algiers in 1830. My superiors said they were well satisfied with me at the siege of Ant werp in 1830. The Emperor told me that he was pleased with me at that of Rome. Such, sir, is my history, nearly complete. Ifyou find in all that any community of origin between your family and mine, I shall he well pleased.” —A telegram recently received in London contained the following mystic announcement: “Nife has arrived Pith third Bulls on board all well hornet wriths last wing has been spoken at sea all well. It has since appeared that these words are to bo translated thus: “The Nile has arrived with 3d Buffs on board, all well. The llornet, with left wing, has been spoken at sea, all well.” I Couldn’t Do Himself Justice.—A colored man hud stuck to the rebel army of General Hood through thick aud thin, and was in high hopes of iieing able to march into Nashville aud pay liis respects to a lady who belonged to the upper crust of the colored society; and when lie discovered that the besieging army was retreating, he determined to break through the lines aud throw himself upon the mercy of the cruel Yankees. He presented liiinself to General Thomas, hat in hand, and standing very straight. ‘■Where are you from?" inquired the Gen eral. “I’se jest from ds army, sah.” “What army?” “Mr. Hood’s army, sah.” “Where is Mr. Hood now?” He's leavin’, sah; he’s leavin’.” ,, , . ‘Ah! I thought Mr. Hood, as you call him, was coming into Nashville,” “No. sah! Ur. Hood thinks he ran t do his self justice in Nashville." ’■<1111 IHAKUrTS. TELEGRAPHIC reports. . Financial.

THE AMERICAN PATENTED IMPROVEMENT TANNING COMPANY, of New York, owu the • exclusive right in the United States tor the manufac ture of an imperishable “EXTRACT” from Hemlock Bark for tanning purpose*. The Bark Extra*! is now extensively used among Tanners, and the de mand tor it rapidly increasing. It com mauds a ready sale in the Boston, New York and Philadelphia mar kets, at sixty cents per gallon. The appliances for manufacturing are simple and not expensive, costing but little more than the ordinary leaches used byTan ners. By this process, 1} cord* of Bark may be re duced so as to concentrate the entire strength into forty gallons of extract, without in the slightest de gree injuring its tanning qualities, and at a cost not exceeding one dollar per cord. The saving in freight alone, between the transportation of the Extract and the bark, will range from six to eight dollars per cord, so that any one who may get out but three hundred cords of bark per year, may save from two thousand to twenty-five hundred dollars in the difference in freight. The Company does not propose to sell Territorial rights, but will grant exclusive privilege to manufac ture in certain localities, charging a small royalty per gallon on the amount manufactured. The Company will send competent men to superin tend the construction of the works, where parties de sire to enter into the business, and to instruct in the manufacture of the Extract. As a guarantee of success to parties entering into* this business, the Company will contract to take all the Extract manufactured under their process at fifty cents par gallon, delivered iu Boston or New York Parties iu Maine desiring further information as to terms, Ac., may call upon or address CHARLES HALE, General Agent for Maine, 24 Maine street, Bangor, where models of the apparatus may l»e seen. novl3d3m S.
