Suddenly there was a rushing through an oat field, ns il n mad bull were coming. We looked towards the house nml saw the farmer and bin two boys on the fence, the woman in the door and the bull dog coming towards tl. We saw it all we hud been dis covered.

Tige piopoeit to do that little thing nml keeping bis eye on us, seated him self under the tree. Then spike this ugly farmer man : ".lusl hold on that, stranger, till we get breakfast ;'theu we'll come ami see you. If you an in n hurry, how ever, vou cat! go now. Watch him, tige."" We siirinlcd trouble, quite much; for twice had Jiat man ol bull dogs and agrieull lire elegantly walloped In nocent tourists for licing seen on his suburban ircmic.

Ami a good luck would hatch, we had n nice sand wich mid a piece of Lolled com heel in our pocket. ' We called the dog pet names, hut he wasn't on it. Then wu tried to move down, when he'd mo e up, At last we trebled our bass line, fastened the great limeiick to ll, bailed with corn heel, tied I lie cud of the line to it limb and angled for n dog.

Thu comparutivo result lias been that Congiess, within thu two years ending Juno 30, 1807, has reduced in ternal taxation to tho extent ol 180, 000,000 per nunum; that tho ordinary expenditures of thu Government havo been reduced to $130,000,000, wliiuh, considering tho depreciation ol paper, is not lu excess of $00,000,000 in gold, which was tho amount in Hiiolinitnu'a administration before tho war. Tho increase in the production ol thu coun try will supply tho needed nenncs, nml probably warrant an niinii.il re duction ol the rnto ol tntntion equal to that which wns niadu in 1607, mid re peated in 1808. The suillelcnoy of thu revrnno for lPOf-0 is somewhat contingent upon the action of Congrei-i on tho Army bill. General Grant, while ucting Sec retary of Wnr, submitted u revised es timnto for the the supported thu mili tary establishment. The expenditures of the nnny nnder tho partial reduc tion tiiadu under existing laws, for tho years 1807-H, was IM.OOO.OOO. Tho revised estimnto predicated upon it re duction of the force, n consolidation of regiment", and mustering nut of unriii ployed ofltcers called for only 33,000, 000, and the appropriations aru made in anticipation ol such reduction. But tho expenses of that portion of the ar my on tho Western frontier are found to b greater than tho estimate ol the entire) military force, being in diet about lour millions per month, or 118, 000,000 per year. Air. Walla calls tho attention of Congress to tho fart that unless an important saving can bo cQ eetcd hero or elsewhere, thu expenses of the War Department will greatly exceed the appropriations, and till tho surplus revenue will be required to meet the deficiency, One of thu greatest difficulties tin derail government-! In the reduction ol armies nml navies, U to git rid of thu officers. The regiments may bo leduced to ten privates nml as many sergeants each, without a complaint, but thu moment the baud of retrench incut is extended lo Colonels, Majors, Captains ami Lieutenants, theie is a teliiblu outcry. Every olllccr lias n lmt of lelalivcs, male and leiuale, in and out ol Congress, ami these nit combine against the icducliou ol tho number of officers who arc performing imaginary services. Wu know that Congressmen find it hard to resist these appeals, but duty lo the couiitty lemauds that the pension list be not burdened with sine cures, either in civil or military sen ice. Congress has no right to expend any poitimi oi 110,000,000 per mouth lo keep up n military organization which is useless. Whatever can be shown to bu neces sary, either in repressing Indian ill- l in Imnccs or in maintaining order in the iiureconstiiicted States, the people will chcciiully pay, but nut one dollar should be expended for luucy duly or lrcba parade.
