However, there at lrtifrth reinaineil only one dollar—a sinjrle ilollar literally was wauling, after gathering nji every penny in the lior i-, even i utrein-hing oil the little savings ot I lie t-hiltlreii. Three o'cloi-k was rapidly ap proaehing, ami the ilreaileil protest! W hat imaginings of ruin crowded my lirain, cnining and going with each successive turn of even's ! 1 could have borrowed the lniserahle dollar from nnv one ol n multitudeol friends; Hut 1 didn't borrow money—that involves reciproc ities, magnified with Itoss's telescope; la sides, to ask a friend to lend me a dollar— to have to confess I needed a dollar so mu li I could not stand it! A ncighor hid owed me a dollar for a small book; it had been due a year; he had often told me *o send for it, lint I did not employ collectors, and to gi> mvself lo collect n dollar was infra dig. 1 could not stay in (lie House any 1-mg- er. Till! mind wanted rt lii'f. I went out info tin- sllri't :ts aimlessly as any loafing sanntercr that over disgraced manhood. Would you believe it, 1 met t'io very man who owed iiu'lli>- immensely-desired dollar, uml before ln> came within hailing di-tance, In* began to f.H-1 lor l'.is pocket-hook, anil with apologies for his remissness, he handed tlie amount! And what do you think I did? Whv, like many n—don't know what—before, I niude out as if it was of no sort of conso ijuence; that any other time would have done j, SW el!—in fact,"if it had never been |»:iid, it was of no moment whatever; and 110 actor 011 the stage eoe.ld have exceeded the inimitable indifference with which 1 put out my hand to receive the rag. Hut as soon as lie turned the corner, didn't 1 clutch that piper dollar! didn't 1 heel it down to Wall street at 10 —and'better,'by a baker's dozen? Didn't 1 take up that mite, and vow most religiously that I would never give a note in hand again the longest day I lived J Nor have I yet. Itut every time I think of it there is n sinking within my bosom, and an abasement at the remembrance that 1 was still full of poor, weak human nature, in that • I made believe' 1 did not care about that contemptible dollar." Header, there are multitudes of similar cases taking place in New York and other large cit ies and towns every day. If every subscri ber to a newspaper or magazine would but have the homsty to remit a due subscription the instant he lays down this paper—:iav, more, if every such person who has the amount iu his pocket, or at home, would do this at this juncture —an amount of depression, if not of ngonizingauxiety, would be removed from a large class of industrious, hard-work ing, indulgent, and honornMe publishers of n u .-papers, ot books, and of magazines, tint is ntterlv incalculable. mvrii •Mvinjr I'lt of liii»!orv is l lro::i l lie tJ.'j>rcu : " Tlw jM-njilr <>f the Smili rvjranl tin* iv luiltlifnn* n* iliwr nortiil I<MT. of thfir l.itt«r hostility lo thvir in- , i 11«*114*4" tiny an* n*i>»«*«l in to the imxfiit - ••nnn«*nt v Itii ll tiny r<-IM-IIWI, I>III nprfin*'- til)- ri'i'iililican imrty.

It is allied to his hope of immortality ; it is the ethereal part pari of his nature, which oppression cannot reach." hi the same debate, Mr. I'reston said " My old friend (Mr. Hruce) has told us that ilie \'iigini:i slave was h.-ippy and contented. Mr. Speaker, that is impossible. Happiness is incompatible with slavery. The love of liberty is the ruling passion in man, and he cannot be happy if deprived of it." hi the same debate, Mr. Gholson, of Virgin ia, said : "The love of freedom, and the prospect of obtaining it would inllame their hearts and in spire revolution." McCall, in his history of (Jeorgia. alluding to the slaves savs : " This elnss of people, wlio cannot he sup posed to ln> coiitfiiti'd ill slavery, wo ild jrrasp with avidity at tlie most desperate attempts that promised freedom." Tlic Krv. .T. I>. I'axton. of Virginia, who VIIS reared in thf midst of slavery, find had himself hccil a slaveholder, published a vol ume of Letters on Slavery, ill which lie thus Mates the result of his observation: " The slaves—man. woman and child—are tonkin;; for lreedoni." William T. Allen, son of a l'n■sbyforiaii clergyman ill lluntsville, Alabama, published a statement in I in which lt<» savs : " It is slavery itself, anil not the cruelties merely, that makes shivery unhappy. J'.ven those that are the most kindly treated are generally far from happy. The slaves in my lather's famiiy are ;;Inu.*t as kindly treated as slaves can he, but they pant for liberty." t V The body of F. M. Allpbiu, who was frozen last January while on the way from John Day to Des ('hutcs, was found on Wed nesday, April 2, by 51. J. Aliphiu, about i 1 miles from the crossing of John I'av, and some S2-I miles from the Den Chutes. The body was wrapped up in a soldier's coat, and to all appearance he laid down completely ex hausted, and in that condition sunk away. Deceased leaves a wife and two children. From the condition ot the remains, it was im possible to remove them. In the search for the remains, Mr Allphin was aided by John Irvin. The search was unremitting, and \v;:s continued for thirty-six days.— Adrucutc. ' «r When tin- l". S. Senate removed from their old to the new Chum her, several l'clii i:.-;- ling speeches were made, among which one by John ('. Breckinridge, who said : "Js there nil American who regrets the past !

In the House, the scene was equally enthu siastic. 1 Miring the reading of the brief but intensely exciting dispatch just snllicicntly long and fraught with tidings to stir the hearts of patriotic men, there was nil evident effort to restrain the feelings which at its its conclusion burst forth in a ringing cheer and claiming of hands such as were never heard in the hall before. For the first time the professional etiquette of the reporter's gallery was broken, and this at t:!I times or derly, amid the disorderly portion of the holt: .', echoed with the notes of joy which in lull volume rose from (loir to galleries. In vain the punctilious Speaker i truck his gavel to bring back the House to order. None could see the impropriety or infraction of rules in such an indulgence of patriotic feel ing, and the rejoicing went on uuconliued upon the floor. Members sprung frantically from their S"ats and rushed around Mr. Col tax as a common centre, he retreating to the open space outside the seats. Hero congrat ulations went on apacu as ihc dispatch went from baud to baud. Amid the throng the venerable member from Kentucky, Mr. Crit tenden, with his gray hairs, was most distin guishable; and for some minutes, wherever he moved he encountered the eutst retched hands of his compeers, who congratulated him on the glorious event which had cleared < 'id Kentucky of the rebels, who had so long held in thrall the I'liion people of his native State; and heartily, ;md with a beaming face, did the old patriot respond to the gener al I. , ling. The Speaker bad n busy time of it with his carping gavel, but for some time to no purpose, as i: was felt that there was no indecorum committed in such a demonstra tion of joyous and loyal feeling over the vic tories of the I'liion. •• • Ilictt WITIKII T MONRV.— Many a man is rich without money. Thousands of men with nothing in the pocket, and thousands without even n pocket, are rich. A man born with a M iod sound constitution, a good stomach, a good hettrt, and good limbs, and a pretty good head-piece, is rich. flood hones are better than gold—tough muscles, than silver; and nerves that flash lire and carry energy to eve ry function, are better than houses and lands. It is better than n landed estate to have the right kind of a littler and mother, (,'ood breeds and bad breeds exist among men as really n* among herds and horses. Education may* do much to check evil tendencies, or to develop good ones; but it is a great thing to inherit the right proportion of faculties to start with. Tint m:;:i is rich who lias a good disposi tion—u ho is naturally kind, patient, cheerful, hopeful, and who has a flavor of wit and fun in his com|M>sitioii. The hardest thing to get id, lie; wiih in this life is a man's own belf. A crot-s, seltiJi fellow i desponding and com pl lining fellow—n timid, care-burdened ninn —these are all deformed on the inside. Their feet m*iv not limp, but their thoughts do.

Alemiida, a rtrong for tress, had surrendered to the French, and Maeseiia, (lushed with victory, advanced three powerful columns upon Lisbon. On the night of the S.'fd of September, the light division of the Hritish army under cotnmr.nd of the brave < ieneral Crawford, were sleeping on their arms in n large wood, when, from some unaccount able cause, a pr.nic seized the soldiers, and the*.e veteran troops, who had never experien ced defeat fled like a flock of sheep from their bivouac—nor could they be iuduced by either threats or remonstrances, to reform their ranks, until u young staff officer cafised a cavalry charge to be souuded iu their frouts, and shout ing that the French dragoons were upon them, the panic-stricken men formed into squares and stood ready to receive their imaginary foes. This liirht division was during the Peninsular war, the dread of the French army and the pride of the British. In the month of July, but a year previous, these same troops who fled lite cowards, marched sixty miles in twen tv-six hours under a bunting sun, and cr< ss 'd tiie bloody field of Tulavera, leaving less than fiftv stragglers behind them.
