Give ns back the dollar ot the past, wtj miv, ami iiiukp u nionev ; There are tew instances in the lerr inlation of th'w country which have done more to shake the faith of the people, in tho reliability of popular representation than the mysterious pitssaub of the Act, in 1873. which demonetized silver. Here was a bill, the most important, in its effects upon the people, which Congress could en tertain. It at one stroke wip d out of existence as a legal tender a melal which represented more than one half of the money wealth of the country, yet the till was put through Congress without discussion, and the country generally was not aware thnt tsnoh a measure was in existence uniil nearly two years alter us passage. We can only measure the infiimy of a letisla tion by the ohject to be effected by us success. Unto the tune of the jassaffe ot this lull i lie bonds ol the United States were payable both in gold and silver the latter ut the rate in weight legally set by congress. The previous year silver was deimrn- tizcil in (.lermaiiy. utter the utmost publicity, adding that con urv to Eng land and Holland, in which silver had no legal status as money. Thoallack upon silver, in Germany necessarily had the effect lo depreciate its value, ami lie Kiiiopeaii plutocrats were not slow to see that, it the United Slates could be .ie ailed upon to join tliH ami silver league they would, liy n coup (fe mum, increase their owii wealth to the extent of the deprecia tion. Had the Act introduced by looper been honestly placed on trial before the country it would ntvtr have become a law. The argument was entirely against it, The people would have letnsed to cripple their financial resources by aiming a de structive blow at one-halt the money wealth of the country nnd they would have objected In a voluntary increase of the public debt ny demonetizing one of the metals in which il could be legally paid. The passage of such a measure in a secret and oiandeHtn' manner gives convincing proof ',at corruiil'oii was getting in," when tl e Act ' ' kongres. p."'" parfifrVaplfi from the Hunker's magazino, for August, 1872, has re cently been unearthed, which shows conclusively how this measure camo toreciive. the care h rid attention il did in Congross. That paragraph is as follows: , . "Congressional Kecord, April 9th. Itnz, page,y,UJ4. Mr. Hopper Chair. nan of the commute on Coinage, in lis reports, says: Ernest Lloyd. of London, a distinguished writer and T . ' .. ! ... bullionist, who is now here and has given great attention to t.,e' m j ict of mints and coinage, afier examining the first draft ot this bill, made various suggesMons, . which, the cummttce adopted an embodied in the bill. In 1872, silver being demonetized in Germany, England and Holland.a cap ital of n0U,0U0 (fjOO.nOO) was raised, and . Emeu Lloyd, of London, was sent lo this country with this fund, as the agent nf the foreign bondholders and capitalists, to effect the same ob ject, wilier was successful."

A practical joke was played nearly thirty years ago at a cocking main in Havana, by some sailors belonging to an American man of war. The sail ors had been losing, day after day. at the cock pit which was the utnuse. nient that they most nlllcted, until they were left without a cent. They were in this plight when the vessel was oidered otl to San Francisco. A number of months afterward the ves sel returned to Havana 'and the Jack Tars had fully matured a scheme 'or vengeance. Drawing all tlieir pnv, and Ivorrowinur all they could in ad dition, ai llin first shore-leave they started for the cock pil, carrying with them tlieir gold and a bagihout which they preserved a great deal ol invsterv. S line of the ship's oflicers, surmising that something was in the wind, lol lowed, Inn not even to them was the secret divulged, Scarcely had they renCDOii tiie pit when nn excited Spall lanl sprang into the arena, where a battle had just ended. Under his left hi) carried a magnificent game cock; in his riL'ht hand he Hourihed a bag of doubloons, and ho yelled forth challenge on behalf of his bird against anything thai wore feathers. No lher challenge could have been halt so weiconiK lo the sailors, for du ring their former unhappy experience he had been their Act or, raking iu their gold pieces -almost as soon us they could tV. ibem. His verbose and grandeloqiicnt dofinrur promptly accepted, the money whs slaked, and the Americans shook t heir cha'iipion out of the mysterious hag, A nondescript creature it was, with a great, solid body roughly covered with cliickin feuilieri and tar, its vings aud tail clipped, its head broad and adorned willi a keen curved beak, iviili long sharp talons at the ends of toes, instead of gull's upon his legs, Do.oile its btrang hull disguise, the i thee rs recognized it at onuc as mi American eagle. Hut the 'Spaniards knew noihing about it. ami Dm " who had made lb" '"atofi was fin ions, deeming hi-''lt insulted by the put ling of si" a miserable looking crea ture -gainst his splendid fowl. The alcalde ordered, however, ina ' the tight should take place, according to the terms, of tho challenge, and the seiior tossod his bird into the pit. Il was rcnuyio tight, or course, for a game cock of good blood wouhi, not hesitate to attack a bird as big as the fabled roe,- So, the first, notice the "Aineii an ' giime chicken." ns il,. sailors had christened their bird, re ceived of tin 'presence of on enemy was a fierce attack. Ho calmly looked down upon he game cock strutting threateningly before him. Thesuilois were not without some anxiety lest the keen gaffs might settle their eagle before ho got warmed up to liVs work, but fear was quickly dispelled. (The amo cock dashed lorv aid twain. I.. less than a second tho Spaniards wit il'ssed ill' Astounding sight. The Xineiicin chicken" placidly stretch ed nut one great claw, seized his nu tagonist by the head, drew bin up, and, applying tho other claw to his body, tore his head off with a single pull. Then he proceeded lo eat him. A storm ol imprecations and shouiii of sstonismciit rent the air, but tin saiors were too well armed and too n merous for the Spaniards, and so th'Vg.il their moi.ev anil n-riirn,., aboard ship laden with moro gold than they ever had before, and carry ing their champion in triumph.' I.TIPAIItl.Ma TIIK OBLIfaATIO Of COiVl'H ACTS. There is a provision in our organic iaw providing against tiie impairment of the obligation of contracts. He- cent legislati. n, and department con "trucliou and iactices under !t. have .i ....ii i . . in iiiiiiiBiniieu now mis provision may be observed in the letter and utterly irud lenlunder foot in spirit and pur pose. The national debt was all cre ated previous l IsT.'J, -ami ihu obliga tions provided (except C per cent. Pauifiu Hailwsy bonds which Were payable in "lawful money") that they were to be paid in "gold and silver coin." Hut just prev ious lo aud dur ing 1873, cxlem-ive and rich silver mines were discovered, an I following this I he holders of onr public securi ties, seem- lhat it would enrich the in, demanded quietly, aud a quietly, ob tained, a revision of our coinage laws which destroyed the value of silyer for paying the nbliu obligations. Since the agitation began for a resto ration of the legal lender qualiiy of silver coin, another method wa sought and ba been adopted to avoid being compelled to receive silver cin iu payment of public sccuriiic, in cae silver should be renmnetized ; thai i by taking up the old bonds dated prior to 1873, fnd issuing new ones in their stead, of' a later'daie. In fact it is the same debt, but in law it would Kern to bo a new and later obligation.

Uue group took us for cavalrymen, with' and mebri alcd enptuiu, and one of tho party, de'iiihtud at the sight ot a man w.ho hud found whlskv enough to be drunk, sprang up from the fire and, brandish ing n roasting ear in his lund, leaped down into ihu road, aud seizing tho , tienerars horse, cried out, " I say, suv. old fullow.whcre did you gel your liquor?" in mi nistiini, as me uunerui awoue, the fellow saw his mistake; and ihea bounding from the road Le took tho fence nt n single leap, exclaiming. "Good God, it's old Jack 1" nnd dis appeared in the darkness, les, Gen. Jackson slept a great deal, but he was never caught napping. ' llu gave lo Vleep many hours which others would have given to conveisa- ion; Ho was esseninrly a silent man ; not morose, but quiet. He never told n joke, but did uot discour ago them iu othurs, and it one itruck' his funny he would smile in mild ap proval He did not live apart from his staff, but liked lo have them ' about him, and they wore nearly all ' very young mt u. Uuivetaally polite in maimer, he encouraged the liveli est conversation among them, al-, though he took little part in it. He was not a miiJi of words ; they seemed to embarrass him. When ho had 1 ideas he put them into action, not into language. His military dis- ; patches were us brief as if studied, like the one nlier the deltiil ot Mil v: "God blessed 'our arm with.1 victory at McDowell yesterday." 'He net er discussed Ids plans ; indeed he never told them. The next officer un linn never knew hi iin n-.-his nor bis object. He never volunteered ' his opinions to his superior, nor asked udviceofhis subordinates. He was i self elii nt ss he was sil nt, nnd ' believed " ho walks with speed who w.lk alone." Hews reticent log fault. " If mv coat knew what I in tended to do 'd take it off and throw it s way," wastne of his sayings. This reticence often led to embar rassmeut and complaint from the of tlcer next in commaud, aud might have led to disaster in easn of his death ; but he evidently thought it better to run that risk than the risk of having his plan discovered. One pound of green copperas, dis olvcd in one quart of water and poured downs water closet, will effectually 1 ooneenfrate and destroy the foulest smells. On boaid ships and steam- 1 bouts, about hotels ami other publio plaivr, there is noihing so men to purify the air. Simple green conner- - a, disiilve I in anything under (he bed. will render s hospital or other places for sick free from unplesant smells. In fish-markets, slaughter houes, sinks and wherever there are offensive gass- , dissolve copperas and sprinkle it ' about, sr.d ins few days the smell will pas sway. If a cat. rat or mouse dies about the hone and send lorth su offensive gas, place some disolved ' copperas iu an open vessel mar the plsce where tin' nnsianro is and it will purify ihe atmosphere.
