Tom is a genuine specimen of the genus Piketus Oregoniauscs. He lived at the Dalles, Oregon, where he had re tired to enjoy city life, after having ac cumulated a competency by lucky spec ulations in cattle. Tom was no foo on the contrary rather sharper than the average of hi kind, in matters and things that he -knowed about." Oue morning Torn . walked up town, as was his wont, to see what was trout" on, and stopped in front of the "Mount Hood" saloon to exchange salutation? with his friends, Jim C. and Vie T., who occupied arm chairs near the door. dj. ining the ''Mount Hood" was a igar, fruit "and genuine meerschaum" pipe stand, and among the multitude of wares exposed for sale on the sidewalk, was a huge pije of cocounuts, arranged like cannon balls. Whats them asked Tom. Cocoa nuts4 replied Jim quietly. f'AVhat aro they fur?" asked Tom. To eat," you darned fool, said Jim ; didu't you ever see a coeoaout be fore?" 'IIow do you eat 'em?" continued Tom, waiving the . reflection upon hi ignorance Why, boil there," continued Jitu, with great immobility of face. So without further delay, Tom pur chased the largest one he couM find, paying six bits therefor, and made bee line for home. The evening Tom came up town, and entering the "Mount Hood," said to Vic. in a ouiet tone : The old woman has been a bilin . that cocoanut all day, and it 'pears like it ain't done yet every once in a while ahe makes a dive after it with a two prong'd fork, and it cavorts all round .the kettle. What do you think ? "Why," said Vic, "perhaps you did not put any saleratus in the water, fhat's it j go home aod put a handful of faleratns in it, and keep on boiling it; it may be an old one. The next morning Tom started up Jlaln j-treet, walking quite fast, with a yery excited air about him, and. going toward Vic and Jim, and pale, with half suppressed passion, exclaimed : ''You thiuk you are mighty smart, tJoo't yon, to tell a feller to go and bile a cocoanut? Here we've been a bilin and a bilin the cussed thing all day any all night, and the blamed thing ain't done yet. Now I'll just let you fellers know that I don't near believe that's the right way to cook a cocoanut no how."

Subscribe for tho IlEruBLiCAN. VVMUtVlVUI From the Sublime to the Rld'cutous. Old Judge Barlojr, of Virginia, af ter enjoying the highest honers and re tiring to private life, was prevailed on to be a candidate for a local office. The opposition trotted out an illiterate-rough-and-tumble polician named Hill Maples, against the old man. In ac cordance with the strict rules of con ducting a political campaign in those days, Governor Harbour had to take the stump with Maples. Uut Maples could always beat him in abusive har rangues. The final speech of the cam paign made by Maples was abusive be yond all preeedcut. The following is Harbour's reply, which we think is the most complete thing in its way we ever read. fc?aid the Governor : Ftltow Citizens; When I was a young man, now nearly forty years ago, your grandfathers sent me as their rep rescntative for four terms to the Hi. me of Delegates, and I was chosen Speak er of that body. At a subsequent pe rioJ I was twice elected Governor of Virginia. Afterwards aud for ten years I represented this renowned com monwealth in the Senate of the Uni ted States, where I may say I was the confidante and perhaps I may .ay the peer of Macon, King. Gaillard, I'ick ncy, Van Huren. Mr. John Quincy Adams subsequently conferred upon me a place in his Cabinet, and lor tluee years I shared his counsels in conjunc tion with Clay, Wirt and McLean. I was then appointed envoy extraor dinary and minister plenipotentiary to tho court of t. Janice, where it be came my duty to conduct negotiation? with the conqueror of Napoleon. Judge then, fellow-citizen, of the ineffable disgust I fe:l. after Mich a career, ,nd in my declining years, at finding my self here ti-iay engaged in a Io-( piti ful . county cnfei-t with s-ichaj : disagreeable little cuis as Hill Ma4.hs Farming Pno-rrcTs A year r.go, the balance of trade with European nations was about nincty-eiiiht trillions in gfld against us, all of which had to be drained from the country and sent to Europe to. pay for articles that would not yield a cent to us in return, j This state of things has changed for the bet ter. Last June the balance was two millions in our favor. They owe us, instead of our owing them. Now, this means that there are sixty millions which will be spent in Europe, much of it in matters which wiil reproduce itfdf. It is well known that the farm er feedeth all." and in whatever way this amount of money is-spent.' the per son spending; it must be led -by the farmer. He ultimately receives the money which they spend. The continued news from Europe is, that the wheat crop is injured by drought. The war, too, will cause a great additional demand for whw.t. Doubtless our firms are o be benefit ed by this state of things. Prices or wheat have advanced in all American markets, and will advance more. A Practical farmer informs us that he intends this season to try an expe riment in watermelon raising, which he has heard produces remarkable results: Uury a bottle at the stem of the melon ; place one end of a small string,' woolen is probably best, in the bottle and insert the other end into tho stem. Of course tho mouth of the bottlcshouldbe higher than the stem of the melon. As the water becomes exhausted a fresh snpply must be added. The melon iu this way is fed gradually by capillary attraction and grows to a size something less than that of a sugar hogshead. An Arkansas paper says: "The coming woman came yesterday. She arrived at the railroad station. She came alone all the way from Hoston. She met a stranger ai she alighted from the train, whom she had never seen before. The stranger was fasci nated by her. They were at once mar ried by a Justice of the Peace, and set out for home in an ox cart. Heaven bless them." The people will nit foil to notice that, on the passage of the bill : to. re duce National taxation, and so ease the taxpayers of their burden, all the votes cast against reducing taxation, were giv en by Democrats. Thirty-five Demo crafi ccoogressmen voted against the bill to diminish the taxes. i 1 .

Telegraphic Nummary. Paris. July 20. The following proclamation of the Emperor to the army, on assuming com maim m pvisuu, was "issued to the soldiers at Metz yes terday : "I come to take my place at your "head to defend the honor of the flag of our country. You go to eoa. bat against one of the best armed of European countries, but other c un triea as gallaut as this have not bceu able to resist your valor. It will be the same to-day. The war which now commences will bo long and hardly contested, for its theater will be places hedged in with obstacles and thick with fortresses, but nothing is beyond perseverance aud the efforts of the sol diers of Africa, Italy and Mexico. You will privo once more what t ho j French army is ab!e to accomplish Animated by a hmiso of duty, main j tamed by discipline, inilticncJ by love; of country, whatever road we may take across our frontiers, and we will show ourselves worthy of them.

The war panic at the Ex change continues. Six nuro failures have been announced. The rl vanee in the rate of inh rc?t at the Hank of England to ." per cent, was a precautionary measure rather than on indication of the scarcity of money. There hav ben thirty fail ures at the .Stock Exchange fdnce the beginning of the war, hence the de pression of the Liverpool markets is still very groat. , Coiunnf, July 20 A Iltlcna dis patch says the southern ftigo was stop ped by six highwaymen at a point fit tren miles south of Pleasant Valley. The passengers made a determined re sistance and succeeded in driving the robbers off. A passenger named Ch as.
