' (llct"the fiituro, the"T-Tirlft ana" oautToh of the people led thnm to lay something asldo which could not lose its purchasing power. Thoy hastened to lay hold of these coins, and secrete thorn whore they could bo found whon other means of eubslstonco fallod. Tho scarcity of those coins produced groat inconvenience In business. It became almost impossible to mako change In tho ordinary purchases from dealors and morchants. Shlnplastors began to mako their appearance to supply the deficiency. In the rebellious States these were not only ifisued hy individuals and private corporations, but by States, counties, cities, towns and all other municipal corporations. A collection of thoso rebel shinplaslers upon all kinds of pap.ir, from white writing to brown wrapping, would now ho an interesting memento of tho war, but in a pecuniary Hon so absolutely worthless. The credit of devising a lawful and adequate remedy for this inconvonlence belongs to General Krancis H. Spinnor, Trea.su rer of the United Statos. Ho found if. impossible (o facilitate as ho desired to do the payment of tbo soldiers and sailors and to conduct tho business of tho Treasury with tbo small coins at his command. Ho thcreforo arranged with the I'ost-Ofltco Department to redeem in unused stamps such post-ago-atamps as might be used fur currency. In a short time his department manufactured and introduced a new issue. All the denominations woro of uniform sl'/.e. A piece of paper with one stamp pasted on it was five cents; one with two stamps, ten cents; five stamps, twenty-five cents, and ton stamps, llfty cents. In this way, at the cost of a little labor, a considerable amount of small change was manufactured. This enrroncy became so popular that, instead of using stamps, plates were engraved for each denomination, in imitation of the manufactured notes, tbo Impressions from which had the same legal qualities and were used for the. same purposes. Those impressions were called tho "postage currency." Thoy were afterward authorized by tho act of July 17, 18*12, which dirocted tho Secretary to furnish to the Assistant Treasurers "the postage and other stamps of tbo United States to Jo exchanged by them on application for United States notes." Those stamps wero receivable in payment of all dues to the United States of less than five dollars, and could bo exchanged for United States notes when presented In sums of not less than fivo dollars. Tho samo act put an end to the further isauo of shfnplHsters by making the issue or circulation by private persons or corporations of notes or tokens for less than one dollar punishable by fine and imprisonment. The convenience of the postage currency was great, and tbo amount called for increased to an extent which became troublesome to the Post-Ofllce Department, and the Secretary decided to take it into the Treasury, where it legitimately belonged. Accordingly, an act was passed which suspended its further issue, and substituted in its place currency of another description.-h. E. Chittenden, in Harper's Magazine. LAZY WHITE FOLKS. Kach Kenueotahlo Family lu Nassau H�i About a l)or.�n KorvtinU, Oddly contrasted with tho happy-po-lucky life of the shiftless negroes in Nassau is tho indolent tlotw- far niente existence of tho well-to-do whites. Living in substantial stone houses with polished hard floors, big windows to lot in the air, and broad latticed "galleries' or verandas around the second story, they are freo from care aa if they were out of the world. Why should they labor when the faouso and tbo street are full of colored brethren who will do any thing for thorn for a sixpence? In a well-appointed NaBsau household there must be ton or a dozen servants, for the cook would not wash a dish any moro than the parlor maid would go upstairs, Tho cook is the most important person in a Nassau house. Let me introduce you to tho cook and send you off to the curious Nassau market with her. In the evening the larder of the best houso in Nassau ia as bare as tho negro home I have described. Thero ia then not a bite of any thing In the houso to oat All provisions are bought in the morning, and enough only to lass through tho'day, for in hot climates provisions spoil rapidly and ice is dear. The cook must attend to this, for no Nassau lady ovor goea to market Every morning tho cook is given so many shillings and with this she must feed the family for the day; if sho can save any thing it ia her own. Sho goes off to market with a big basket, and there she finds every thing laid out in little heaps; four sweet potatoes in one heap, three onions in another, and a third a "soup bunch," mado up of an onion, a small tomato, a potato, some thyme and p* rbapstwo or throe okras. Theso heaps cost from "a small copper" (one oont) to "a check" (three cents) each. There are oabbagos alio d into quarters like a pie, pigeon peas, guinea corn, yams, cassava, bird peppers and many other unfamiliar vegetables. Thoro are slices of green turtle sold like chops; small molons and delicious Avocado pears; fish by the thousand of all kinds, fresh out of tho water; but ff you want a Nassau delicacy you will buy only the head of a big fish, and have it sorvod w4th tho oyes glaring at you. At meal-time thero must be ico. but it must bo bought just as the meal is served, A boy is sent to the Government ice-house, and in his unmusical voico ho hurrldly demands: "Chock; Ice!"-throe cents' worth, one pound.

A volumo could bo Illjed with interesting narrativos of the fondness manifested by famous men and women for pots among dumb creatures.

Proutpotted chickens and John Wilson doted on tbo horse; James Hogg had always a dog with him and so did Hogarth and Reubens; Sam Johnson avowed a predilection for cats, so did Goldsmith and so did Lolgh Hunt; Ouida has a parrot, and Hannah More was as fond of her bullfinch as Harriot Martinoau was of her purring tabby. When ho was a tailor in Tennessee,-Andy Johnson mado much of a pot coon, and General Grant's favorite was a stanch saddle horso. Boechor loved canary birds; tho charming wife of ex-Presidont Cleveland became much attached to a marmoset; the same robin haa nested in Whittier'a orchard many years.

Ncvor was forest scenery moro exquisitely beautiful than on that morning as the day broko-for we had breakfasted at four o'clock, and started Immediately afterward, l&very-whoro tho view was falry-Uko. Thoro was not snow enough for snow-shooing. But the fresh fall of snow was immaculately white, and flocked the scene apparently from earth to sky, for thero was not a branch or twig or limb or spray of ovorgreun, or wart or fungous growth upon any tree, that did not bear Its separate burden of snow. It was a bridal dross, not a winding-shoot that Dame Nature was trying on that morning.

Suddenly wo camo to a queer sort of clearing dotted with protuberances liko the bubbles on molnases beginning to boll. It was a hoavor meadow. Tho bumps in tho snow oov-ored stumps of treos tho beavors had gnawed down. Tho Indiana wore looking at some trough-llko tracks in the snow, like the trail of a tired man who had dragged his heols. "Moose; going this way," said Alexandre, and we turned and walked in the tracks. Across the meadow and across a lako and up anothor mountain thoy led us. Tbon wo camo upon froshor prints. At each now track the Indians stooped, and making a Booop of one hand, brushed the now-fallen snow lightly, out of the indentations. Thua thoy road tho time at which the print was mado. "Las' week," "Day 'foro yesterday," thoy whispered. Presently thoy bent over again, tho light snow - flow, and ono whispered, "This morning." Stealthily Aloxandro swopt ahead; very carefully wo followed. Wo darod not break a twig, or speak, or slip, or stumble. As it was, tho breaking of tho crust was still far too audible. Wo followed a littlo stream, and approached a thick growth of tamarack. We had no means of knowing that a herd of mooso was lying in that thicket resting after fording. We know it afterward. Alexandre motionod to us to got our guns ready. Wo each throw a cartridge from the cylinder into tho bar rob making a "click, cllok" that was abominably loud. Alexandre forged aboad. In five minutes we beard him call aloud: "Mooso gone. "Wo los' him." Wo hastened to bis side. He pointed at some tracks in which the prints wero closer together than any we had seen. "Soo! ho trot," Alexandre explained. In anothor fivo minutes wo had. all but completed a circle, and were on the other aide of tho tamarack thicket And there wero tho prints of tbo bodies of tho groat beasts. "Wg could soo even the imprint of the hair of their coats. All around wore broken twigs and balsam needles.
