Fully sensible of the respon- sibility imposed upon the Executive by the act of Congress, to which public opinion is now called, and reluctant to call into exercise any of the cxtnioidinary powers there- by conferred upon me except in cases of imperative necessity, 1 do nevertheless deem it my duly to make known that. I not hesitate to exhaust tiie power thus vested in the Executive whenever and wherever it Hlxill become nacessarj' to do so for the purpose of secur- ing to all citizens of the United States the peaceful enjoyment of the rights giuu-anleed to them by the Constitution and laws. It is my earnest wish that peace and cheerful ohcditucc to the law may prevail throughout ihe land, and that all traces of our late unhappy civil strife may be speedily re- moved. Those enJ-i can lie easily ap- proached by acrjiiiesctMce in the results of the conilict now written in our Constitution and by due proper enforcement of equal, just and impartial laws in every part of our country- The failure ci local committees to such means for the attainment of results so earnestly desiied impose upon the National Government the duty of putii 10 forth all its IMU for the protection of its citizens ot every nice and color, and for the restoration uf pi-acc and order throughout the entire country. In testimony whereof I have here unto set my hand and caused the seal of the Unitod Slates to bu at'- fixud.

[From tin1 Sun's account of the of the Cuba murderer.] Judge Flippcn then spoke as follows: "Samuel H. Poston, this is one of the saddest events in my life. Our parents and their chil- dren knew each other. We grew up together, to the same school, the same church, and played on hill and valley the same innocent games in boyhood.

It is, therefore, the sentence of the court that you be remanded to the county jail of Shelby county, the from whence you came, to be there securely kept until Friday, the 20lh day of May next, when ynn will be taken by the Sheriff of Shelby county, between the hours 10 A. M and 3 p. M., hin one mile and a half of the court house of said county, und then to be handed by the neck until you are dead, and may God have uic-rcy on your soul." When Poston was called, both the Judye and Poston were vciy nuicli moved. Poston shook like an aspen leaf and had to grasp a chair for support. At the con- elusion of the sentence Judge Flippcn was in tears, as was also nearly all the crowd gathered there. It was a most affecting will ever be remembered by those witnessing it It was a surprise to all to know ths relation that had existed in early childhood between Judge FJippeu and Pos ton, and it must have indeed been a sad thing for Fiippen to consign to death a playmate of his early boyhood days. Mark Twain's Hotel. Having lately opened a hashery, 1 send you these my rules and reg- ulations This house shall be considered strictly inn-temperate. None but the brave deserve the fare. Persons owing bills for board will be bored for bills. Boarders who do not wish to pay in advance are requested to ad- vance and pay. Boarders are ex- pected to wait on the colored cooks for meals. Boarders arc requested to pull off their boots, it they can conveniently do so. Sheets will be rigidly changed ouce iu six months, or more if ne- cessary.

By it we understand (according to Worces- ter) that it is a person bound by indenture, for a certain time, to perform servisec for a master, and receiving in return instruction in his trade or occupation." The above dcGuitiod corresponds witli the usage of the present day witli but oue exception, viz. "that is a person bound by indenture." That ho latter, at the present time, is >c.irceiy ever carried out, is a fact to be deplored, being de- trimental to the; interests both of employer and apprentice. The apprentice who Las indentures agreed upon can only be dis- charged upon very great char- ges, wherens, the apprentice wlio lias not indenture is liable to be discharged on the slightest pre- text. The employer, too, may have an excclknt apprentice, who lias displayed an apt interest in the 'miriness to which he has been ap- prenticed, yet. on a sudden, he may take a notion to leave, assigning or giving no reason therefor, thus en- tangling considerable loss of time, etc., upon his employer. It is plain to be seen, then, that appren- tices should be indentured, it being to the interest of all concerned. I will suppose the apprentice, then, to be regularly indentured and commenced upon his duties, and will address my icmarks more par- ticularly to him. My you ever thought of the great responsibility resting upon yuitfxelf in learning your trade There are too many appren- tices who think think that the em- ployer must teach them every little point connected with the business, instead of endeavoring .to learu themselves. This is a mistaken idea. Do not wait for your employ- er to show you observe how the workman Hdo work, and thau strike boldly yourself, resolved that you will overcome all diflculties that may present themselves; with t'ie full determination that you will become a first class workman, so that your services may always be sought for, and that you may he able command the highest prices for your labor or market. Be obliging, and do any favor you can, and with a will. Be polite.and never forsict to apply the golden words, "Thank for any fa- vors that are shown you. Study your employer's interest, and do not waste a moment of his time.for you should remember thit you dis- tike to be kept at woik beyond the alloted time. It is well not to forget the golden rule, "Do unto others as you would them do to you." When business is pressing, do not be afraid to jiive your em- ployer a few extra minutes, for in- stead of it being a loss, it will ia the end prove a gain Ob- serve what is going on around you; think as well as act: and Un Jyour Icizure moments read good .books tiom which you'can learn the light literature the day. Study, educate your- >elf, learning something new froui' what you see iu [your daily lilo, resolve that at some will be a great man, and not'only resolve, but persevere and become one in "word, and Shut Your Mouth. This is rather a strong phrase, but analyzed it is'a very important one.

You may thereby think twice before you speak once, and often put a padlock upon an unruly tongue. When children were children, which is not often case was most valuable. HEKE is an Iowa post office'story. "Dan Lacy was postmaster, and a person asked the price of postage stamps. "Three says Dan, blnndlv. "But could you not af- ford to let me have them cheaper if I took four or five of them''" querries the customer. "We cannot replied the accommodating Dan "we could have done so un- til lately, but now the Governteeitf punches holes around each stamp for the convenience of the people. which, so increases the cost that wcv cannot afford to make any discount The satisned customer cheerfully paid three cents.
