How much we lose by not making the acquaintance of our cousins the brutes i say we courteously for 1 am not included in the class of persons who Are contumacious to dogs horses and other quadruped Al inhabitants of our planet. The fact is i am More interested in a Beaver than a Beau and a chained Bear who travels All his waking hours in a Circle and always turning a somersault Ata particular Point is much to me than a fashionable Young fellow doing very much the same thing. I was always very Odd. And i cannot Tell Ali ethos i or t liked William gumming for his horse Selim or for a himself fee tim was a wonderful fellow and had Cost a fabulous Price Jay ugh he had a bad no Ridden him but William Cumming and yet the first five minutes of our acquaintance made us friends. arched his Prond neck to kiss me and i patted his Glossy coat and smoothed Bis mane and put my Side Saddle on him with my own hands. At a you must not rider Najj said William. A what would be my portion if any Accident should befall Oil in your mothers a Enco if she Here to give her consent a in nonsense v i cried a my Mother is used to my ways and she is not a Coward. Selim and i Are friends you can a. A but he will try to be master and your hands Are not Iron my Little a never you fear a said i a i will turn him three ways at once if he insists on running away. Skill is better than Bard work in most affairs and especially in managing a a who taught you skill in managing a horse a said he. A common sense a i replied. A now let. Me a a common sense at thirteen a said William laughing and he took off the Side Saddle and replaced it with his own and then Rode away. I went tip to my room and cried bitterly. Girls and babies done to weep a they cry. When my eyes were red and Ray curls in a tangle 1 looked in the Glass. I was at a trying age my Collar boy Les were prominent and bad a Salt cellars a with dreadful shadows and my arms were skin and a Weaver would have said i was All Warp and no William camping was thirty Yelaca old. And Haa a a farm adjoining my fathers. He was a scholar and a gentleman and cultivated his own land and had the handsomest horses in the country. I had a great respect for him though i am afraid he was indebted to his four footed Friend for a portion of it. I have Baid that i was Odd. My sense had a sort of preternatural acuteness that seemed miraculous to others and i am not quite sure but i had a sense More than belonged to my acquaintance. William Cumming used to a Altmey a Little Witch a because i could Tell him what he was quite sure i knew nothing about and could not find out by any natural Means but he meant usual i think when he said natural. My ways of acquiring information were very simple and natural to me still As i had established a character for extraordinary a knowing Ness a i got credit when i did not deserve it. For instance when i said to my Little brother a How came you to. Go into the China closet and take mammals oranges t he answered redolent of the purloined fruit to sister How could you see me through the door when it was locked a and he went away convinced that i was something very much like a Witch. Older persons in a similar manner cheated themselves into the belief that my gifts were much Moro wonderful than they were. A Are you quite sure that you Are Nota Little Witch a said William camping. A Selim kissed you and Laid his nose on your shoulder the first five minutes of your i answered him with some impatience a i wish people had As much sense As horses. They know who mean Well by them while people Are always suspecting one. They suspect poor Little me of witching or the Black Art. Eve fun you Uncle William Are afraid i will cheat _ i was grieved perhaps a Little angry that 1 had not been trusted the rid Bim and now William had returned i wished to punish him. But to took no notice of my ill humor and said very pleasantly a Tell me by your Black Art where have i been the last half Quot he was standing by the door and i was at the opposite Side of the room but i was in the draught of air and i answered a you have been whisking the flies off Selim with a Bunch of Penny Royal and you have Beon Over to the Bank where the wild thyme grows and you have been among the wild roses on Ginger Hill. I know this though i have been Here the whole he walked Over to where i was standing and said �?~bow1 do you know All this r As he came beside to i said,.�?~and you saw Mary Stacy and Shook hands with her and you have something in you pocket from Luke a How do you know All this a said be wonder struck amp a he had been half a dozen Timea before. A no Spyglass could Tell you this for Mary was it Home at her fathers House beyond the Hill and thyme Bank is beyond that and hidden from every body and the roses and Penny Royal Are beyond the Hill and the whole is three Miles from Here. You could not have followed me unless you had been on the Back of another Selim and besides you say that you have been Here All the time. How do you know that i have something in my pocket from Luke Stacy and what is it v a it is a letter a said i a that a has brought you from some a even so. What you say is All True but How do you know it a a simply and Only a i replied a because 1 have a nose. When you came in i smelt Selim and Tho Penny Royal. The mingled doors told me that you had been brushing the flies off the horse with some sprigs of the Herb. The next odor i smelt was he thyme and the wild roses. The you came to this Side of the room i smelt the Verbena the Only perfume Mary Sta by uses. When you cup a Little nearer,.i smelt turkish Rocco and the seizing of paper and then i was sure von had some paper from Luke Stacy and the most probable idea was that it was a letter. Why i can smell Luke at the lower end of our Lane when i stand in the door. Now then you can see that i have fairly accounted for a except for the fast that you Are All nose a said William. A you Are a Cross Between a vulture and a Dove. But i must attend to Selim. I dare say he thinks he is he went out to see the horse but he was gone. He looked All around but did not find him. A he is stolen a said William much alarmed. A i saw an ill looking fellow watching me As i Rode along. The Gate is shut and there was no Way for him to disappear unless some one has taken a the Gate is shut a said i a but it is not the Gate was fastened by a pin which was put in a Hole bored in the Gate Post. When this pin was taken out the Gate swung open and if the wind were right it might be closed again. I examined the pin Selim a breath was warm on it. This was perfectly perceptible to me but not to William. A Selim done to know enough to take out that pin and then replace it a said he. He has More sense than a great Many men a i said As i passed into the Orchard when the crushed Clover blossoms gave me notice that the horse had passed but a few minutes previous. A if i find him Over the Bill Majl tido_mm.-Tjjicle-3sjll�6y�,?l-,-- a you will not find him a Heans Vor amp a. Iran to the top of the Hill. On the of ther Side Selim was trying to eat with his bit Between his i went to him and tried to unbuckle the bridle on the wrong Side. He quietly turned the other Side of his head to my awkward hands putting the right buckle per tenaciously before me till i unfastened it. We. Cum mpg came along greatly pleased but said that Selim should do the Gate trick again that to might see him. So he him Back and let him to himself in the Yard again. He Drew out the Gate pin with his Teeth and when the Gate was swung open he put the pin again in Tho Hole and went his Way again to feat upon the Sweet grass. A leave him to Nie a said i a i will take care of when William was gone and Selim was satisfied with the grass i called him by a Low whistle that his master used. He trotted up to me and Laid his nose upon my shoulder. 1 him to the door and saddled him with my own Side Saddle and then with vory Little preparation i started for a contraband ride. Stiim cantered away seemingly pro Ted of Bis Burden and i was rocked in the Cradle of an ecstatic de Light. There is in my opinion no terrestrial ecstasy to be compared with a Canter provided your horse be of the right kind and the atmosphere and scenery equally desirable. For myself i want no better company than my horse. I do not want to put my foot into the hand of any Cavalier but i want to Spring into my serial Cradle and skim Over Hill and Dale like a creature with wings once Only Selim tried my Metal but. When he found that i understood his Gate and swayed him first to one Side and then to the other and finally turned him completely round he made up his mind to go swiftly Forward and give me no More trouble. I patted Bis neck to let him know that i appreciate his Good manners and after a Canter of ten minutes i turned him homeward. On the Way i saw the same ill looking fellow watching the horse that William had observed. To compared descriptions and found that he was the same person. William was delighted to know that i had Ridden Selim without Accident or ii behaviour on the part of the horse. His partiality for the Orchard caused him to be left there in the Clover arid the next Day he was stolen. The Bill separated him from our sight and a breach was made in the Fence and be was taken away about mid Day. My father bad been to the Village three Miles Distant and was As he left the Village he came into a piece of Woody ground. Recent Rains had filled puddles into the Road that were miniature Ponds. As he entered the Wood he saw Selim approaching backed by a strange rider even the ill looking fellow who bad just succeeded in stealing the Middle of one of the largest pools of water Selim very deliberately Lay Down and rolled so As to 4ei Tach his rider he then Rose suddenly and galloped away As the top of his Speed. The fellow got up. He was a the Knight of the rueful countenance and rueful coat and All other Hab aliments when my father met him. A my horse has thrown me. Said he using some adjectives to Sehmi a discredited. A a whore did you get that horse a said my Nathenn a i bought him on a farm about three Miles from Here a How much did you give a asked my father. A a Twenty five founds and i la have Back my Money i will never keep such a brute. I. William camping had paid one undred and Twenty five and he valued the horse at double that sum. A a that Story clips to impose upon me said my father a Only two persons were Ever Onjo it horses Back Lefoi e and when up steal another horse you will do Ell to find out beforehand whether you can ride him. It is not Nice to be spilt in a mud puddle but you May congratulate your self that you Degeare he drove on leaving the Eres fallen villain dripping with dirty Wajer not Long after this we heard of the arrest and conviction of a horse thief and on inquiry we learn that he was the same pm Risoni a who had been treated so to a mud Bath by Selim. He was sentenced to the state prison for four years. Haring this time i Fel very secure about Selim and William used to Tell me that i thought there was Only one Rascal in the world. The Days flew by for my youth it was Happy. Four years fled and i was in my eighteenth year. William Chimming had been my instructor in a Many things and my Friend in All dhring this time. 1 always called him Uncle William and it never me that our relations could a amp changed. Pepple asked Why he did not marry. He said that his old Aba Cheloris was a chronic complaint and would prop Bly never be cured. I remember one night Asl Lay in bed the thought occurred to me what if William Cumming should marry ? it is surely no harm to speak of it now for he has been married a amp veral Yea Sand in but. I will not anticipate. The pretty widow mrs. Jameson had been staying a month with a Friend in our neighbourhood and William had often been very polite to her and what was worse than All he had promised that she should ride Selim. The next Day was appointed for her to ride and by a hot very strange coincidence i this night asked myself a Why cannot i be mar ser was he is old enough to be your father. The Beautiful mrs. Jameson was Lili Young but nearer Williams age than i was. My pulse beat fast and the Long Vista of Ray future life looked gloomy and terrible. After tor meeting myself till i thought i wanted to die i fell asleep. I awoke in a kind of shuddering horror. I had heard sounds the Ike of which l Lead never heard before they seemed compounded of the squeals of a horse and the groans and Erie sofa Hundri being. I was sure that i had heard these sounds that it was not Aslee Pinglau by but when if was fully awake i heard them no were. It was a warm night in the latter part of june and my windows were raised. I slept on the second floor and two Large windows of my room faced the half a mile in a direct line from these windows was a Post Road. 1 was sure that thesos ads i had heard came from the Road or its near i listened earnestly but All was still. Suddenly there floated in the room filling it As it were an Oder that 1 was perfectly sure was from human blood. I shrank Down into my bed and Shook with Horis or then with an Effort of my will i arose threw on a dressing gown arid hurried to my fathers room. A father father a i cried a come with me a a what is it Agnes dear a said my Mother a what has frightened you a a i thought i heard someone a said i evasively. I waited for my father to dress and Itse Eradean hours time though Only a few minutes that he was patting on his clothes. A when we were out of hearing of my Mother i told him of the sounds and of the smell of blood. He always believed me when 1 told him of anything that seemed i creditable for be had much experience of the truth of Tho testimony of senses. A father a said 1, a half a mile from Here close to the Post Road a human being is lying bleeding to death i am sure of a my father took a lantern and wont to William Cumming i dressed and when they came. I the Way to the spot where i was convinced we should find some one dead a or dying. The howling of the dog that proceeded us struck us All with a sad solemnity. As we Drew near the Edge of our Field which was bounded by the Road we saw a horse standing and As we came nearer we Baw it was Selim. Lying beside him was a Man. My father stooped to examine and said a i believe he is the Halter was buckled to his Arm and he was bitten horribly in his arms and legs and had bled to death. They raised him and Laid him on the Back of the now docile Selim thinking that perhaps he had Only they took him to our House but he was quite dead. He proved to be the thief who had stolen Selim before and who had been Only three Days out of prison. After necessary for realities the poor wretch was buried Selim never passed the place where he bad killed him without being seized with a Sevy re fit of shuddering. I was very ill from the shoes of this dreadful scene. I believe i was. Out of my sense and had a sort of brain fever which was very much aggravated when the widow Jame son called to see me. When i we recovering when i was very Well a amp to very weak. I was one Day alone with William Cumming i was looking at him. And thinking How Noble and bad some he was. And then i thought of the widow Jameson. And of her Beauty and i said a Uncle William has mrs. Jameson Rode Selira yet ? a Agnes dear he said almost impatiently. 1 wish you never would Call me Uncle William again and his forehead Bdl an to Fly inc amp Al on w which greatly marred its exceeding Beauty. ,. It i blushed Scarlet but said nothing a please Promise never to Call me Uncle again he said beseeching by. A Sweet thrill of happiness stole into my heart and said blushing and smiling a Why should i not Call you Uncle and mrs. Jameson aunt when she is your Quot a my wife said he vehemently a i shall never marry unless my Little Agnes will be my a you would not marry a Little Witch a i said. A and you would not marry Ari old Bachelor almost As old As your father a said he. I wanted to say a who said i would not but i did say 1 am so strange and unlike everybody else that Yon could never to willing to take me for your a willing a said William a i would give the wealth of the world to Call you my wife Little Witch As you Are. Will you leave off calling me Uncle William and be my Little wife Agnes m y hearts pet my Darling 1�?T i was sitting beside him in my weakness his Arm stole round my Waist my head sunk upon my bosom he clasped mein fervent embrace and said a mine forever a and i answered a mine Selim is eighteen years old to Day and my eldest daughter is ten. She is a Lovely girl and is More like her father than like me and to my great Joy she is no Way Peculiar unless be aug a great Romp and vory Brilliant and healthy in her complexion May be considered unusual in this Day of Prim schools and Pale girls. One thing is certain and it is a great Comfort to me that though she is a child of Good sense and Good capacity for moral and intellectual at inc act a kirov a "in,u3 the Man demurred to the idea. A sir a said the other a it is All i or. Astor but Little away. How the richest Man in n. Y. Spends his time. A correspondent of the Rochester Democrat sketches the richest Man in new York in this manner a i. Astor a office is in Prince Street near Broadway where he May be found daily Between the hours of a nine and three.�?�. built Man with course features stiff rough Sandy coloured hair arid a cast of countenance of a very Ordinary Type. He dresses plainly but neatly has a somewhat careworn look and appears to be fifty or sixty years of age. His private office is of moderate size and of Plain furniture. On a table Are a few books and on opening that one which appears most thumbed you perceive that it is a volume of maps of City property carefully and elegantly executed and As a Vitole embracing the sundries of an enormous estate estimated at Over $25,000,000. resides in Lafayette place in one of a Row dwellings which Twenty five years ago were the grandest in the City though now they Are distanced by the palaces of the fifth Avenue. Near by is the magnificent Library founded by his father to which be has added a fund nearly equal Sto the original endowment. Here he spends a Small part of Bis time the remainder being occupied by his duties Iri the Prince Street office where sundays excepted he does a full Days work every Day in the week. Thus the whole routine of life of the richest Man in America is a walk to and from Home of a half mile and close attention to business a a the care of or. A stuns estate is a vast Burden. He has several Hundred tenants of All grades from the $300 cottage to the $30,000 store. To relieve himself of this vexatious duty committed it for years to an agent who does the work Well. He collects rents and makes quarterly returns and thus pays Over a sum which would be almost incredible and which we May roughly estimate at $300,000 per annul. This Man employ is a Small array of painters and other mechanics in order to keep up repairs and superintend the whole of this department. As a Large part of or. Astor a property consists of vacant lots which Are in continual demand and which he will not sell he is much employed with architects and masters builders and generally has one or two Large blocks in course of erection at a time. This is a very serious Burden. His son John Jacobs quite a business Man and bears his share of the Load. In. Addition to these labors the attention to the collection of interest in Bond dividends &c., is a heavy item since in the Little Brick office which is of course fireproof there Are several millions of government and state his daily income is computed at $6,000. It is said that a certain person Felicitated or. A Star on his pointing to his piles of Bonds maps &.c., the capitalist replied a a Hove would you like to manage All these matters for your Board and clothes 7�?� Geof tie confiscation Bill by the House of rep resent Ati yes. On monday amidst the Echos of the guns of the enemy on the upper Poto Mac j the House of represent uves absurdly passed a confiscation Bill by a vote of eighty two against sixty two it is like Nero fiddling while Rome was burning. It is the diseji9si.on, bilis m Congress and of of generals. That Ham revived the sinking cause of tbe\r�j�j8 and brought them back�?~4ojg e in i fifty of Washington a fend Maryland the whole course of Congress sin e Xhu opening of these Sion has been Worth More than two Hundred thousand the insurgent leaders. But for the proceed Ings of the abolitionists in Congress and out of it to a in Bomus Wuriu Nave Long since died a natural their business appears to be to Heap fresh fuel on the expiring flame. The Best recruiting sergeants of the rebels Are the abolition demagogues cd the Halls of Congress. A Short time ago senator Wilson proposed to Stop enlistment and reduce the army by two Hundred thousand men. He now wants to add two Hundred thousand men to the seven Hundred thousand already raised making in All close upon a million of men organized for the War. Had it not been for the disc Ray a course of the abolitionists in play ing into the hands of the rebels fifty thousand men would have sufficed to restore the Union and peace. If they continue in their present course and Are not put Down by an indignant people he must be a very far seeing and profound philosopher who can predict the end of the War or measure the disastrous consequences to the american Republic and a he human race. Only two things were necessary to be done one was to whip the rebels in the Field and the other Wasto bup ply our army with the sinews of War. The first is not in the line of the brawling fanatics in Congress. They would prefer that the honest hard listed democracy should fight the rebels and be so killed off As to diminish their numbers at the ballot Box while the abolitionists should enjoy who spoils of office and revolutionize the government. But if the fanatics and fools in Congress Are very reluctant to fight at least the pow Otic army ready and willing to pour out its Bloodline water for the Union. Here again Congress is at fault. It will not pass Bills essential to the financial credit of the country and the ultimate Success of our arms while it wastes its time in discussing foolish Bills for confiscating the property of rebels of which we have riot Possession which is about equal in Wisdom to the project of emancipating the slaves before we Are in occupation of \ the territory where the slaves Are to be found. The proverb of chickens before they Are hatched is prudence compared action of Congress. It is not Only reckoning without its , but doing its worn to defeat the Calculi a tons of our Gay eras and their armies. Let the rebels be first subdued and the authority of the fed ral government established in the insurgent states and then the question of preventing a recurrence of rebellion is in order. Most certainly to hold out before hand a sweeping measure of confiscation making no distinction Between leaders and their deluded followers is not the Way to put Down the rebellion for there is no inducement left to the rebels to yield on the contrary every temptation is offered to them to resist to the last and this no doubt is the secret of the Bill now. Passed. The design is to prevent the restoration of the Union. But the spirit of the people is suddenly a roused by recent events. Let disloyal members of Congress even such donkeys As Andrew of Massachusetts already perceive the rising storm. It was but a mayor two ago that he threw cold water on the Callif a the government for additional troops. Now he in ready to sent it More than it wants. Let Congress take the hint. Let the Senate postpone the confiscation Bill to a More convenient season arid Jet it promptly pass the tax Bill containing a few articles of Universal consumption and not a Long list intended to beget a Host of collectors As destructive to the Peoples substance As an army of locusts.

The new York Atlas of saturday has the following pointed remarks �?1, the partiality of the Republican politicians for the coloured race is truly wonderful and their Benevolence towards old darkies and Nigger babies is extremely marvellous when we consider How Many poor White families Are suffering from penury and neglect while those upon whom they depend Are fighting the Battles of the Union. A contraband so a runaway no Groesz from All parts of Virginia and Maryland continue to p6ur into the City of Washington at the rate of 200 a Daj a most of them old and decrepit Siok lame and Blind All of whom Are welcomed fed Abd clothed by fhe government drawing without work Saab rations As Many it poor soldiers family would be glad to receive. If negroes Are thus fed from the pub he crib while leading a life of idleness the people naturally inquire Why poor White people cannot receive like favors. If government rations Are supplied to runaway negroes and veg Abond negro women and children Why n6t in like manner feed the women and children of those White soldiers who Are starving in new York a there Are now upwards of 3000 worthless negroes in Washington drawing rations which Cost the governmental cents each per Day and it is calculated that the number will be swelled to 20,000 within three months. To feed this array of Black vagrants at the rate of 31 cents a Day will Cost Over two and a half millions of dollars a year to say nothing of rent for lodgings bedding medicines attendance clothing Etc.

Isnit this a strange Freak for a White Many a government ? it is demonstrated that the Cost of the rations dispensed to Idle negroes at fortress Monroe port Royal and Washington City would soon nay it a w cd la air our soldiers and Supply their families with bread for months. Why not Stop this feeding of Lazy negroes and devote the Money now expended upon them to the feeding of poor soldiers wives and children ?
