When the secessionists de clared that a State could secede from the I'nion, he saw that this would endanger the I'uion. It one Slate should he allowed to go out, then one hy one these States might withdraw from the Inion until there were no two Slates united. He had favored and supported the war measures, lie thought to allow it to he said that even one State had got out of the ion was a heresy which would destroy the Union. These were still his opinions. For this rea son, lie now opposed the reconstruc tion pi li y if ( ongie s. He said State sii'cido and State secession were synonymous. There were persons, who hid no legal nor constitutional right, so to do, who had attempted to withdraw from tiie Union. The country, by a bloody war, subdued this faction. Then a faction in the North arose, and attempted to carry out the idea that these men had suc ceeded and taken these States out. They threw in a little word called State suicide. Each faction, the se

cession disunion and the State sui cide Kadieal party, agree that States can and have taken themselves out oftheUuion. He said the practical meaning of the two definitions was the same. If one State can secede, another can secede ; if one State can commit State suicide another State can do the same. The secessionists, in attempting to take the States out by force, committed acts in contra vention of the constitutions and laws of the several States and of the Uni ted States, and wore revolutionary and treasonable. For the san.e rea son, tlio act of tho Radicals iu expel ling these States, are revolutionary and treasonable. Honest men may have believed that secession was right, and there are honest men who lx»iieve that sui« idal disunion is right. This opinion, in each is orroni on*.

Mr. L. could not see in what man ner the Congressional policy was to benefit the people of the loyal States. If the so-called disloyal {States wore to he reduced to the condition of Territories, if they were to have no voice in the General Government, if it was no longer considered necessa ry that their assent should be given to measures particularly alfecting them, it would undoubtedly bo nee essary to resort to coercion in order to make thetn bear their portion of the national burdens and render obe dience to laws that must be obnox ious to them. Standing armies would have to he maintained, the ex tra expense of which would have to come out of the country in some shape. The condition of the people thus governed would be deplorable in the last degroo. To them it would not bo a Union of free States, n gov ernment based upon the consent of the governed, but a tyranny of the most oppressive character. [M r. Langford argued the issues springing from the question of Res toration quite elaborately, upon three d liferent occasion J. WO regret that we have been unable to obtain more eiqii us notes of his speeches. As wo do not pretend to have presented all his arguments, it is perhaps un necessary to say that our report does not do him anything liko justice. Mr. Langford is a clear rcasoner, and addresses himself to the intelligence of his audience. 110 lias aptly de scribed the character of his argu ments in Uis allusion to tho seed, which is sure to spring up and boar lruit in tinie.—ED.] SMILES. —What sunshine is to flowers, smiles aro to humanity. They are but trifles, to bo sure, but scattered along life's pathway tho good they do is inconceivable. A smilo accompanied by a kind word, bus been known to reclaim a poor outcast, and change the whole cur rent of a human life. Of all life's blessing* nono arc cheaper, or more easily dispensed than smiles. Then let us not be too chary ot them, but scatter them freely as we go; fur lite i« too short to lie frowned away.

" Spiced vinegar," was the reply. Wal, s'pose yer 'bligo a feller by haiidiii't along." "Certainly," was the answer. The lloosier took tho bottle and commenced dosing into his soup; but as the sauce did not ftow very freely, ho took out the cork, ar.d at the same time observing to his friend: "Kinder close folks ycr stoppin' with, to put each a plaguy little hole iu that to prevent a feller takin much of tho stutt*. I 'spose it comes high, don't it ?" During that time lie poured nearly a wine glass full his soup, and taking his spoon he dipped it full, together with several peppers, and put it into his mouth. The next in stant ho spirted the contents of his spoon across the table into a French gentleman's bosom, and bawled out: "Waiter! water! Snakes and wild cats, give me some water! I'm all a fire!" "By gar, sair," cxcluimod tho Frenchmainln a rage, jumping up from -the t/ble, "you have spoiled my shirt, my vest, sair. Spoil every thing, snir. By gar I shall see about this, sair." In the meantime tho Hoosier had seized a pitcher containing water, and taken a tremendous draught. Setting down tho pitcher, lie eyed the Frenchman for a moment, and then yelled: "])od blast yer old shirt! 'Spose I was goin' to burn my inwards out for you or yer shirt ?—yer moan cuss V Come down to the boutaud I'll give you one of mine." It was with much difficulty that tho Iloosier's friend could allay tho Frenchman's anger, and set matters straight agaiu. But ever aftor u Spiced Vinegar" was a by-word, ami sufficient to set a whole table in a roar. " ■ ■ ———— THH COLAPSE OP CRINOLINE. —Tho Now York Times says; No one who promenades Broadway . now a-days will doubt that tho ioug foretold, long delayed " colapse of crinoline" has at last come to pass. It is visi ble to the most careless observer, and has proof iu our most fashionable ladies as they "march along."

Frank lin was soon behind the counter t when the lounger, with hook in hand, addressed him thus: " Mr. Franklin, what is the lowest you can take for this book?" "One dollar and a quarter," Was the quick answer. " One dollar jind a quarter ! Why, jour young man asked me only a dollar." "True," said Franklin, "and I could have better afforded to take a dollar than to have been taken out of* the office." The lounger seemed surprised, and wishing to end the parley of his own making, said— "Coine, Mr. Franklin, what is tbo lowest you can take for it?" " One dollar and a half." "A dollar and a half! Why,you offered it yourself for a dollar and a quarter." "Yes," answered Franklin, "and I had better have taken that price than a dollar and a half now." Tlio lounger paid the money, and went about his business — if lie had any—and Franklin returned into the printing-office. EASY METHOD OF SHARPENING EDO£ TOOLS. —The simplest method of sharpening :i razor or other odgetool, is to pl:icc tliu blade for about a half hour in water containing l-20th of its weight of sulphuric or muriatic add. Upon taking the razor out, wipe it off lightly on a piece of soft rag; and in a "few hours afterwards "set" it on a strop. The acid supplies the place of a whetstone, by corroding the entire surface uniformly, eo that nothiftg but a good polish ia af terwards needed. This process nev er injures good razors, whilst poor ones arc often improve by it.—Ex* change. EDUCATION.— I believe it is civen up that painting, and gracefulness, and oratory and poetry are natural endowments. Although educatiort does much to improve them yet, af ter all, education does not produce them. God makes them when he makes the man. For education ia to us what the broad-ax is to the tree. The broad-ax does not mako the tree because it shapes the log and fita it for the builder's use. And ado ca tion takes that which is coarae aud rough, andit its proper shape, and adapts it to the j>r> of llffc IJut prior to education there must be constituent fiwalij. 1 a^*lt»re~ra« !• writer -in <**••■* mrw wi.
