All went pleasantly enough until the reading of the second hymn, which was the familiar " Blow ye the trumpet, blow!" ete. Imagine the effect when, at the end of the lino' " lleturn ye ransnm'd .sinners home." the older of our heroes seized his hat, ami, with long strides toward the door, shouted: "Como along home, Bill! I knowed they'd be Hinging at lis if we came hero !" jßCy* General Houston wasas great a whittler as any Yankoo, as every one knows who ever saw him in tho Senate Chamber, where a quantity of soft pine and a waste-basket were always furnished him by tho atten dants. I was once present when a countryman from Guadalupo County colled upon him while ho was Gov ernor of this Stato. Country wanted to know if he could bring his wife into the office to see tho Governor. "Certainly, certainly!" exclaimed •» * V old Sam, with that pleasing grate of which lie was master; " by nil means invito the good lady in." The pair soon returned,and had a very pleasant chat with the old hero. .Inst as they started, old Sam presented her with a lot of silk-winders and other little mementos of his whittling. The old lady laughed very heartily, and said, " Well, Governor, Mrs. Henry M'Culloch told mo that you would he certain to give mo some silk-wind ers, and she told mo to ask you to make her a buttor-paddle!" At this the General and all of us roared. The next day I called upon him and found him "spreading himself" on tho butter-paddle. TICK SECUET or SUCCESS.— Tho ba sis of success in ull occupations which involves the relations of employer and employed is, that tho employer should have an accurate knowledge of tho work to bo done, what it con sists in, how to do it, and how long it should take. A man ot business who neglects this, places his interest entirely in tho keeping of irrespon sible agents, and, human nature be ing what it is, arrives in duo time at insolvency. This is why thcself-mado man,who has been sternly initiated into the whole mystery by having himself stood in the ranks of the employed,

outstrips those who seem to start so fair trorn the vantage ground of edu cation and capital, and build ■ for tune where tliune kick one down.

C., March 12, 1861. >1 Y DEAR CASE : I havo made some progress to-day about tho Surveyor ship of Colorado. In order to secure the Indiana delegation, and to operate on Smith, the Secretary of the Interior, I have promised that all the sub appointments shall bo made by us jointly, 1 giving them the first choice. You must write mo a letter immediately, authorizing mo to make that pledge for you. I want you to write immediately to all your friends, and lot them write letters endorsing you as a practical civil engineer and othorwiso, and direct to tho Secretary of tho Interior, but to mo on envelopo. I havo written to and twice on tho sub ject, to got you tho ondorsomont of the Legislature. I havo not got it yet. l'lcaso write them. Charley feels a delicacy iu pressing your claims, because ho expects to be a candidate for clerk of tho next House, and docs not want to run across the track of any one. What you do, do quickly. Now, Frank, this is the best office in my judgment in tho gift ot tho President, and I would resign to-day it I were sure I could keep it for four yzurs. If you get it, I want to unite with you as a full partner in all land speculations and town sites. I have worked earnestly and hard for you, and hope to succeed. You do not stand as much chance for tho Mar shulship as you do of being struck by lightning, and Kingsbury is not in licit better—a littlo. This is on the square. Truly yours, J. M. ASHLEY. WASHINGTON, 1). C., March 18,18G1. MY PEAK CASE: Everything hangs on a hair. You must uso tho tele graph to obtain letters, and have them forwarded to 1110 at ouce. Let tho writers scud them to mo instead of you. If I get this appointment, it wijl bo tho lirst of such importance where tho candidate has dono nothing. I have promised all tho sul»ordinatc places under you to got help, aud von 11 & write me fully, uuder vour own hard, to maxe this pwH.

Now, if I get this I want to bo full co-partner with you in the purchase of all the real estate that you may make in tliat Territory. I have spent ft good deal of time and sorno money to got this placo, and if I do got it I hopo you will cheerfully go with mo.

Let mo hoar from you by return mail, and hurry nlong any letters and telographs from men wiio can havo otiy influonco hero. In haste, yours truly, J. M. ASHLEY. Waa thcro ever a moro disgraceful exhibit than this of the uao of politi cal position for privato ends ? The Surveyorship of Colorado, " the best gift in" tho bauds of tho President," was by Ashley made a matter of har gaiu and sale", stipulated in writing. Its legitimate patronage was farmed out in advanco as the price of obtain- ing it. and an arrangement was on tcred into by which the chief solicit or and tho recipient were to corrupt ly uso its power in city and town lot speculations. " I," said Mr. Ashley, "will probably be chairman of the Committee on Territories, and then I will know in advance all tho pro posed expenditures in the Territories and post you. Write one lettor for me and tho other to slrow!" And Mr. Ashley was mado chairman of tho Coinmittco on Territories, in the last, as well as in the present Con gress ; Caso was appointed Surveyor General of Colorado} "my brother Eli" was mado Chief Clerk, and " my brother William" was given a snug berth; tho programme, was carried out in all its details; and now it would bo interesting to know much plunder the immaculato Representa tive Ashley has pockotod from this corrupt and scandalous uso of the power of his official position. With these facts before them, tho people will very naturally conclude that, however censurable the President might be, it is not for toch men M WiprcwMitative Ashley to frame his indictment, or such men M Sudoa Cameron to sit in jadgmeot ■poo him.— Rvrhtakr Umio*.

A teaspoonfdl to A tumbler of cold water, is the manuer of using it.— Grcr. Telegraph. Do INDIANS SWEAR ?—T?his is a ed rious question, and the answer bjr Mr. Schoolcraft, should pat the whito man to blush. This gentle man, who has for many years studied the characteristics of th'e race, says: " Many things the Indians maj be accused of, but the practice of swear ing they cannot. 1 have made many inquiries into the state of tboir vo cabulary, and nothing is moro bitter or reproachful than "mateh anno moosh," which simply indicates baa dog. They have ternis to indicate cheat, liar, thief, murderer, coward, fool, lazy, drunkard, babbler; but I never heard of an imprecation or oath. The genius of their languago docs not favor the formation of terms used in oaths cr for pilrposes df pro fanity. It is the result of the obser vation of other* as well as my own. to say (hat nil Indian cannot curse.'' They become proficients in thd "art," however, very soOn after sur rouuded by the elements of civilize* tiou. VALUE OP POULTRY MANURE.— There is no manuro made on the farm so valuable as that of poultry. One ounce of it properly diffused in a half pound of soil, and placed in a hilt of corn when planted, will bet* powerful a fertilizer AS ten times its weight in barnyard manure. Is France, as well as in oar coilntry. most eminent chemists have proved this by analysis.
