THE ATTORNKV A BLACKUUAKD.—Touch ing felicitous endings, a Western correspon dent supplies a legal incident that will be appreciated we know. Several years ago, when one of our present Justices of the Supreme Court was District Attorney of a neighboring county, lather n laughable incident occured as related by him self. Court week he used to occupy a bed room at Lewis' Hotel, the principal hotel at the county seat. He had his books and pa pers in his room. Here he drew his indict ments, and in important cases b« used to di rect the sheriff to bring the people's witnes ses for preliminary examination. It happened at one session that he had an important murder case coming on. The cel ebrated General ( now Judge ) Nye was coun sel for the defendant. He examined the wit nesses as usual and took careful minutes of what they W3uld state on the stand. He found that a lady was the most important witness for the people, and he also discovered I hit she was rather excitable and higlißtrung, and a fast talker. Apprehensive of trouble, he thought he'd •eiution her a little. So lie told her when she came on the stand not to talk. " Pay atten tion," says the District Attorney, "to my questions, and answer tbem, but don't talk; and when Nye cornea to examine you, you irnust be very careful and not get excited, for ilie's a great blackguard, and w.ill try to get you mad. Just pay attention to hiß questions -and answer them, no matter how often re peated, or how apparently silly, but don't allow him to get you off your balance." The District Attorney and the witness part ed for the night. The next day the ense cam* on. The District Attorney called his witness, and she went through Iter evidence ■on the part of the people with perfect ndmi -artiou, and he handed her over to Nye. He went along awhile very smoothly. Pretty soon he began to crowd her, and she began to " flare up;" he crowded her the more, and soon they had a regular breese. Finally having lost aelf-control, she broke out on him aa follows : " I won't answer any more of your con temptible question*; you're a nasty, dirty blackguard, and the District Attorney told me ee." After the laugh had partially subsided, Ny« said: . " What! the District AMorncy told you ? When and where Hid ho tell you ?" " He told me so last night in his bedroom." The scene that followed this answer may be readily imagined. Iu the midst of the shout, Nye told the witness that she might " pass." ' A BIT or BABCASX. — The Washington «cfarespondent of the New Yoik Evening Pott, gives the following: After the exciting debate in the House the other day, upon Kentucky politics, had sub aided, Mr. Thaddeus Stevens made one of his sarcastic remarks, which caused consider able laughter upon the floor, nnd since it was printed in the Globe , it has attracted atten tion ontside of Congress. I qnote the speech as it is very short-: " Mr. Chair mam: Ido not desire to cut off this interesting debate, and I trust nobody ■rill think that I have done so prematurely. I have been very willing to let Kentuckv ex pros* -her sentiments here. She is loyal. ■h?,;! hl, jpports the Administration in every wgmni. . .«'« Acres o ty voting for every measure for which "<Je Administration asks, unleu the deemt it HHconttitut ional. She did so in the last Con gress, and for some time she controlled the op erations of the war by having the ear of the White House. lam glad that this debate haa sprung up, so that the Executive may see how far the gentlemen of Kentucky ought to be consulted; and more particularly the loyal men of Kentucky, who ttick by their pledget. In order that we may have time to reflect upon the matter, I move that the committee do now rise.'* The sting of the remarks consists in the fact that theae Kentnck gentlemen who now make open war upon the Administration, and have already nominated Gen. McClellan for the Presidency, are the very men who a year ago were able to influence the Administra tion in reference to its policy towards the Bor der States. ty Fourteen hundred shipwrecks are stated to have taken place in the Mediterranean dur tag the first week in December. Letter from Washington. [From an Occasional Correspondent of the STANDABD.] WASHINGTON CITV, Feb. 16th, 1863. EDITOR STANDARD : lam keeping track of the windings of the astute Victor Smith. He is now engaged in getting out • series of pamphlets on the Port Angeles affair, the first of which I sent you some days ago, and aa he has a desk in the Treasury Department, has a point of influence which he would not have if he were not under Chase's wing. From his desk he sent to the Ch'onicle sever al articles puffing Port Angeles, which were stopped by Forney's learning from the White Houet that he hail been a victim of misplaced confidence. I think I sent you a slip from the Chronicle in which Smith says " that the President was so well pleased with his at tempt to increase the revenue that he had made him Surveyor General of Washington Territory." That was his last appearance in the Chronicle , and the next day that paper denounced liiin as an impostor. Smith is now trying to have Chief Justice Hewitt, of your Territory removed. He has several other schemes on hand, which arc not yet fully developed. I believe that Mc- Gilvry is working with him for the removal of Hewitt. Smith has the Treasury Depart ment with him iu all of his plans, and nothing can be done by this Congress against him. Cole is trying hard to get the Port of Entry removed back toTowusend, but the Com merce committee of the House will not bear him out in it, and he will not succeed. The sale of the l'ort Angeles town-lots should come off as advertised, but I do not believe it will, as there is no prospect that it would amount to anything at all, more especi ally as there is no prospect that the town will ever amount to much. The salt) will be delayed as long as Chase is in the Treasury, and when that Department changes hands, there will be an explosion of that and other of his humbugs. In the meantime, it seems to me the best policy is to let things tumble along as best they may, confident that all will come out right by-and-by. Secretary Chase is moving heaven and earth to secure the nomination, and as he has the whole machinery of the Treasury Department to work with, he has an immense influence. Tom Brown, the friend of Victor Smith, Is doing all in his power for Chnse, as Special Agent on the Pacific const, but Brown has lately done a very foolish thing in recom mending Beale, the Surveyo General for Cali fornia, to be General Commanding the De partment of the Pacific, in place of Wright. Brown forwarded with an endorsement, all the recommendations for Beale. Unfortunate ly Beale is about to be removed for notorious incompetency, and Brown's endorsement of him as sucessor to Wright is now on file at the White House. But I was speaking of Chnse. I had occasion to transact some business with the Treasury the other day, and being mistaken for a friend nf Mr. Chnse,. I was treated with marked attention, the Register inviting me into his private room to talk over matters connected with the succes sion ; how things were going for Mr. Chase, and hou> they could be nuide more to. (Of course I have a right to go into the enemies camp and get what information I can.) And so throughout the Department. All are on the allert to secure influence for Chase, and if they think a man is for bim, he can get almost any thing he wants. No one that knows me aoubts my being warmly for Lin coln's renomination, but somehow I was re garded on this occasion as one of Chase's friends, and it was very fortunate for me that it was so. While Chase's people are doing every thing, Lincoln himself is really doing nothing, lie is so conscientious that he will allow nothing to be done by any one connected with him, loohing towards* a recomination. The worst of it is he won't do what the pub lic good really demands that he should do, and that which would redound to his benefit and the country's also, is left undone. For instance, there is now an irrepressible conflict going on between Blair and Chase, and I think that the former while appearing to de fend Mr. Lincoln is iu reality trying to ruin him. Of course Chase likes that, and so the quarrel goes on, and the Treasury Depart ment being the object of Blair's persecutions and conspiracies, Chase makes more frieuds thereby, and Blair more enemies for himself and Lin :olti than he could in any other way. The President could ston all this, but he will not, and so the dixgrot-efil quarrel goes on, to the great scandal of the friends of the Administration. I repeat that Mr. Lincoln iB too regardless of his own interests. The President has just nominated Caleb Lyon of Lyonsdale, as Governor of Idaho. Conness and Harding are opposing his con firmation by the Semite. Conness had recom mended a man now in Idaho to thu President, and Harding a Mr. Baker from Massachu setts. Harding took him up because he saw that somebody would be nominated to the Senate before the arrival of Wallace, who wanta Payne to be his successor. The popu lar will is all with Mr. Lincoln. The politi cians are, of course generally against him, as tbey all want a band in renovating the Gov ernment, and in filling vacancies in office. Greeley and his crowd, are determined to kill him off, just aa they did Seward in '6O. On the whole, it is a very fair fight between the people and the politicians. If the former nave their own way, the nominee will be Lincoln. If not, t'len somebody else will be nominated. I have one hope in the matter, which is that the people will take the matter into their own hands, and by mass nominating conventions, and spontaneous movement* an- OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 9, 1864. I ticipatc the " strategy'' of Greeley & Co., and I thus have Mr. Lincoln been put before the Nation as the people's candidate) which he is in point of fact. Mcbride is doing very well indeed, as a Representative, and I really hope he will be renominated by the Union Convention, which meets 30th of March. He has been here long enough to become familiar with the modus operendi of affairs, aud he can be far more useful to the State than a new man. Ido not think Harding is a candidate for reelection. Conness, of California, is making his mark, and is radical enough for the most radical. He is disposed to support Mr. Lincoln for j next President, although he has been pro. voked by the slowness with which he actß in making the official changes which Conness asks for in California. You doubtless know bow reluctaut Mr. Lincoln is in such cases. I am very pleasantly situated here, and yet I feel a strong desire to exchange my pleits ant old home for a new one in your wild coun try, and you need not be surprised if I should break in upon you before many days. 1 have written you a very long letter, and yet have omitted much you and your readers would like to know, aud which I should have written, but you must wait for it till I write again. Please keep me posted in regard to your Territorial affairs, in which I take a great interest. Truly yours, " WANTED." —The Eastern correspondent of the S. F. Journal, gives the following : One day Inst week, the Herald contained an advertisement for an editor of a weekly news paper, to be devoted to securing the nomina tion of (J. 15. McClellan by The Democratic Convention. An ex-editor, who holds a clerkship in the Custoin-llouse, answered the advertisement. In some mysterious way, the fact that he had thus proffered his services be came known to his superiors, and he was called before his chief for examination, where the following conversation is said to have oc curred : "Mr. Blank," said the chief, " is it true that you offered to take charge editorially of a weekly newspaper designed to support Gener al McClellan for the next Presidency ?" » No, sir." "What do you mean, sir? I have here your letter in reply to au advertisement in the Herald, offering to accept the position. Is thiß letter yours ?" •' Yes, sir." " Then what do you mean by your denial t Are you not aslmmcd to receive the patron age of the Republican parly, while you are working for its opponents ?" " l'ardon me," said the ex-editor, " I think I can explain. The advertisement called for an editor to advocate the nomination of G. 1). McClellan for the Presidency. Ido not think I could better servo the Republicans than by securing that nominatiim." " Humph !" said the chief, " there is some thing in that " " If you will take the trouble," continued the ex-editor, " to examine the advertisement, you will find that nothing is said concerning the support of Gen. McClellan for the Presi liency. It was my intention to withdraw from the paper as soon as the nomination was made, and I don't think the Uuion party has any reason to complain of my conduct." " Well, sir," replied the chief. " I will con sider the matter." The ex-editor still holda his place; but he has not been chosen as the editor of the Mc- Clellan Weekly. In fact there are as yet no indications of the speedy appearance of that hebdomadal. ANEWWAV OK EXPRESSING CONTEMPT. —There must have been a remarkable change of opinion in Bradford county, Pennsylvania, within a few years. Not long ago, when the Bank of Pottstown issued its five dollar notes, James Buchanan was so popular there that his portrait was engraved upon one cor ner of the bill, and nobody thought of de facing it in the remarkable style that ha 9 prevailed sinpe the beginning of the war. A banker who is a curiosity hunter, has shown us a bundle of thirty-eight of these five dollar notes, in twenty of which the word " Traitor" is written across Buchanan's fore head ; in others, the letter "T " is branded; on one the following words appear : " Give him his deserts;" on another ia written, "Ye oulJ divil;" and still another bears this inscription: " False to hia country and his God, but true to the Democratic party." Some ingenious individuals, at a loss to ex press their contempt in words, resort to sym bols ; one has drawn a copperhead snake, wriggling in the mouth of Buchanan, anoth decorates the head with a cap and bells, and a third incloses the neck within a noose which it attached to a gibbet. These curious meth ods of indicating contempt are not of a very high order; but they show how Buchanan is now regarded in that part of Pennsylvania in which once he was so great a favorite.— New York Evening Pott. AN INVRTEKATE SMOKKR.—A gentleman who atudied under Boxhorne, in Holland, told me that the professor had the most ex traordinary passion for smoking and reading. In order to enjoy both at once, be had a hole made in the middle of the brim of hia hat, through which he used to atick his lighted pipe when he intended to read or compose. When it was empty, he refilled it, Btuck it into the hole, and amoked away without re quiring to put hia hand to it; and thia was bis occupation almost every hour of the day. An old maid is like an odd boot—of no use without a fellow. ADMINISTRATION. — -»•« The Reaion Why. In former times the men who worked with the Democratic party, understood the value of party organization, of party platforms, and of partisan policy. The opponents of the Democracy during the same periods, learned something of the disadvantages of being mere opponents of the party in power, and held to gether by bonds less rigid than those of party discipline. The one built up a dominant par ty and kept it in power for a long term of years, while the other party kept a numerically powerful party out of the administration of the Government. The natural tendency of strict party discipline was preserved till the corruption of Buchanan's Administration so thoroughly disgusted the more honest portion of the Democracy as to force them to brave the party lash and forsake forever an associa tion that had been almost as dear as the ties of consanguinity. From that time, political association began on a new basis. Those who loved the Government better than party ; who put the preservation of the Union and the honor of the National flag, before partisan ism, began naturally to mingle in political fel lowship ; they felt themselves drawn together by au attractive influence, before which the old lepugnances began to weaken, and when the storm of rebellion broke npon the country, they came together in patriotic embrace, like so many natural affinities. The new party thus made has thus far withstood the beating surges of rebellion, and prevailed against the mad factions by which it has been assailed at home. It now stands b/ the Administration and supports its measures for the suppression of rebellion : Ist. Because by far the greater portion of the Union men of the country believe them well adapted to the pnrposes for which they were offered. 2d. Because, if they do not thus support the Administration, it standa patent that no measures tor the suppression of the rebellion and the maintenance of the Government could he taken. .Id. Because by the constitutional organi zation of the Government, they acknowledge an obligation resting upon them to aupport the agenta through whom alone the power of the people can be exercised. 4th. Because in unity there ia strength; and the factioniats who propose repudiation of the Administration would divide the unity of the North and thus render the Government powerless against its adversaries. The Union men, then, swing that no means for the salvation of the Government exist, ex cept to unitedly and heartily support the Ad ministration, cheerfully yield that support. Whoever does less stands in a questionable attitude between the Government of the Uni ted States and the rebellion.— Ogn. States man. Tin: STOMACH QUESTION* IN RICHMOND. —'Die Richmond Examiner of the sth Feb ruary savs: '• The quantity of meats in tho market for some days past has not been sufficient to sup ply one-tenth the demand. The hotel pro prietors especially have been put to their * trumps' in their daily efforts to obtain enough to supply their tables. The anticipa ted passage, by the Legislature, of the bill to prevent the slaughter of sheep and lambs for food, has thrown a great deal of mutton upon the market, aa butchers possessing these animals are taking time by the forelock and preparing their meat for mnrkct before the measure can become a law. Hut ween the great scarcity of beef, the high price of pork, and the prohibition of mutton, the com munity is likely to enjoy a season of unhal lowed lent. Some of the heretofore leading cafes on Main street are about closing tfieir doors against meal boarders, because, as the proprietors allege, the price of every article of food is so high they cannot afford to feed them, with any profit to themselves, no mat ter how much they charge. We auspectthe real cause is a plethora of Confederate notes; they have as mauy as they can conveniently bale and pack away. The accommodation of the public is nothing with them." THE ART or BEINO POLITE. —First and foremost don't try to be polite. It will spoil all! If you keep overwhelming your quests with ostentatious entreaties to make them selves at home, they will very soon begin to wish they were there. Let them find out that you are happy to see them by your ac tions rather than your words. Always rememember to let bashful people alone at first. It is the only way to set them at their ease. Trying to draw them out has sometimes tho contrary effect of driving them—out of the house! Leading the conversation is a dangerous experiment. Better follow in its wake, and if you want to endear yourself to talkers, learn to listen well. Never make a fuss about anything—never talk about youraclf and always preserve perfect composure, no matter what solecisms or blunders others may commit. Remember that it is a very foolish proceeding to lament that you cannot offer to your guests a better house, or furni ture, or viands. It is fair to presume that their visit is to you, not to these surrounding. Oive people a pleasant impression of themselves, and they will be pretty sure to go away with a pleasant impression of your qualitlea. On juat such slender wheels as these the whole fabric of society tarns; it is our buaincss to keep them in perfect running order.

A singular case of a white man turning black has just come nnder the notice of the medical profession in this city, who, thus fkr, are unable to explain the cause of the won derful change. The subject is a German by birth, and has been in this country about fif teen years. He it a single mas, aged forty* five years, and extremely temperate in hit habits. His name is Gustavus Brett. For several years he worked in one of the cotton factories at Manayuk. In the autum of 1861, a little more than two years since, he was seized with a disease called "spotted fever," that was alarmingly prevalent, and fatal at that time. The physicians were at an entire loss in regard to the disease, and nearly nine cases out of every ten ended in death. The attention of the most learned and prominent members of the faculty was called to the singular affliction. Quite a large num ber of pott mortem examinations were made, but they did not seem to assist the doctors in their search of the primitive cause. Indeed, to this day, the " doctors disagree " as to the cause of spotted fever. Mr. Brest was cover ed with purple spots; there mnst have been a thousand on him, each spot being about the size of half a dime. People will perhaps remember this was an American coin, nearly a half inch in diameter. The spots began to fade and finally disappeard altogether. In August last, dark spots made their appear ance on the back of each hand aud on each instep. They gave bim no uneasiness what ever. The spots gradually increased in size until nearly the whole surface of the body was covered with a bronze skin. His nose is as decidedly dark as the skin of an Abyssinian, his cheeks are more ot a coffee color. The palms of his hands and the soles of his feet are as white as they ever were. His health is remarkably good ; it never was better. Within the past month a deeper shade has been added to the akin. . The attention of several members of the faculty has been called to the affair. Professor Johnson, of the School of Medicine, and Doctors Marks, Pen nypacker, and Oibson have made a critical examination of the skin, bnt the cause is be yound the power of their fertile examinations or learned experience. Mr. Brest himself was aa anxious to know the cause as any of the medical gentlemen, and he submitted himself to some experiment A small portion of the cnticule or acurf akin was removed without pain or inconvenience to the aubject of the operation. This mem brane was exceedingly pellucid, and not at all affected with discoloration. The small portion of blood that came from these parta was beautifully crimson, and the same that was drawn from a veiu on his left arm. The most powerful microscopes were brought into requisition, but their aid brought no relief to the searching minds of the doctors. They were astounded then, and atill remain in the same predicament. Mr. Brest bcara his change of color with remarkable philosophy, and even jokes about it. He consoles him self with the thought that he has still a split in the end of his nose, which he says a ne gro has not, and that by this unerring aign he can establish hia claim to being white, al though he has a dark akin.— Philadelphia Age, January 11.
