Jtoaps and <faris. The Governor- of IHinois recently vetoed forty-six legislative Acts in one batch. r? They have stylish parties in Boston at which no one worth less than $250,000 is admitted. There are "bogus conductors" out West, who, anticipating the real individuals, go through the trains in advance of them and collect the fares. The Knights of St. Crispin, a secret society of Shoemakers, is said to number one hundred thousand members in the United States. From almost all parts of Indiana reports are received showing that wheat is in unusaBy fine condition, and promises a large crop. Rev. A. G. Stacy, formerly President of a Female College at Charlotte, N. C., occupies a similar position in Missouri. Iowa has so extended her wheat acreage that she will raise 20,000,000 bushels more this year than last. By a new law in Arkansas, the County in which a murder is committed is liable to be tried and fiued $1,000 for committing the crime. Youncstown, Penn., the estimated population of which in 1860 was only about 500 souls, has 105 retail liquor dealers. In the Texas bond case, the Supreme court has decided the constitutionality of the reconstruction Acts. Judge Grier dissented, but only as to the merits of the case. The steamer Gettysburg has been ordered to take a line of soundings on the coast of Cuba and the neighboring islands. This is rather significant. The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal in the McCardle ease for want of jurisdiction. This case involved the question of the constitutionality of the reconstruction acts. In Washington, on Monday night last, the workingmen of the District serenaded Senator Sprague as a manifestation of their approval of his | recent political course. Industrious people of Richmond earn a living by gathering bullets, shells, &c., from the battle-fields around that city, and selling them for old metal. The slave trade, it seems, is not yet totally suppressed. A British frigate recently caught two slavers off Madap?scar with one hundred and fifteen negroes on board. -Winn, Maine, boasts the largest tannery in the United States. It turns out yearly 60,000 sides of sole leather, using 7,000 cords of hemlock bark to tan it The New York Tribune says: " we rear that the tendency to corruption about Congress is on the increase, and that improper influences affect votes more often than is generally understood." A colored couple were recently married in Richmond, Va., each of whom some years ago were compelled to have their legs amputated at the knees, owing to their having been severely frostbitten. What next? A Leavenworth paper thinks it "an evidence of the Westward March of Civilization" that the Kansas Legislature appropriated $1400 for tobacco for the penitentiary prisoners, and only $300 for preaching the gospel to them. A dispatch to the New York Tribune says:! "It is rumored by General Longstreet's friends that he will hold the place of Surveyor of the port of New Orleans for only a short time, and should Genera! Sickles decline the Mexican mission. Longs:reef will be nominated for that place." General Robert Anderson, the aero of Fort Sumter has been turned out in his old age, like a worn out horse, to die on the commons. We read that he has been compelled by his necessities to sell his library and go and live in Europe. It evidently don't pay to oe the hero of a mere fort . The boyish test of good steel or good tempered steel blades, made by breathing on the polished surface, and noting the time of the evaporation, has lately been claimed by a prominent English mechanic to be founded 011 correct principles. A novel tournament is to eome off in Chicago some time in May. The Chiraqo Butchers' Society offer a solid silver belt, with a buckle of solid gold, to the butcher who am kill ana aress an ox in the shortest time. The belt is a very handsome one, and costs five hundred dollars. A newly married man, who was naturally confused by the event, handed the railroad copductor his marriage certificate instead of the ticket. It was declined. '"What,'' exclaimed the astonished bridegroom, "isn't that good for a ride?" "No, sir," said the official, blandly, "not on this road." It is said that a shipwrecked Yankee was lately rescued from one of the Marquesas Islands, whose first question on being discovered was, "How did the Mexican war finally turn out?" He was a soldier who left Gen. Scott's army before the campaign closed, and furnishes a very good paralled to the Man without a Country. A dispatch from Providence, R. L, announces the death from apoplexy, on Thursday last, of General Burton. Colonel of the Fifth Artillery. General Burton is well known for his kind treat ment of ex-President Davis when a prisoner. He was afterwards commander of the post at Columbia. S. C. London has a sensation preacher in the person of Ned Wright, a converted burglar. His language is so striking and effective that Mr. Spurgeon stands no chance against hint with the female portion of the audience. lie has lately been preach-1 mg at the midnight mission houses in Jxmdon, and with such force that many women fell insensible, and had to be removed on stretchers. A writer in the Ohio Fanner says that after the horse is nine'years old a wrinkle conies on the eyelid, and every year thereafter he has an additional well defined wrinkle on the same spot If, for instance, a horse has three wrinkles, he is twelve, if four he is thirteen. Add the number of wrinkles to nine and you will always get the age. As a good many people have horses over nine, it is easily tried. -?The rapid immigration from the North and West is already changing the entire population in some sections of Spottsylvaniaand Caroline in Virginia. In the neighborhood of Spottsylvania C. H., a dozen Northern men have come in and are now actively at work. In the vicinity of Guiney's station, on the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, twelve miles from Fredericksburg, largo sales have been recently made. A short time ago the House of Representatives called upon the President, if not incompatible with the public interests, to furnish a list of vessels captured or destroyed during the late war by Confederate cruisers. This information was laid before the House on Saturday. The number of vessels given, with their names and value is nearly throe hundred, and the aggregate value more than $13,000,000. Some mischievous hoys in Natchez, Miss., & few ti'jht- since introduced a new feature into the festb'irie- of a oolnr.-d fair being held in that city. These odious wretches placed cayenne pepper upon the hot stove and sot all the du-ky damsels to sneezing to that extent that all the hooks and eyes were bursted off their dresses. They then, for the benefit of the dusky lords, introduced in the eggnog crotort oil as a lubricator, and possibly to equalize or neutralize the effects of the fusel oil already in the admixture. The fair did not prove a very eminent success. New York thieves have in training a number of dogs for summer operations. They are tauaht by repeated endeavors to rush into a room and seize from a counter a parcel and quickly bring ir to their master. Their counter is made so as to resemble thorn in banks, and the parcel is covered with yellow paper, and made to look like the packages of bank notes, that are exchanged from one bank to another. The design is to take or send by a confederate one of these dogs to the door of a bank or broker's office, where a parcel or package of hank notes is seen to be l.ving on the counter, and send him in. The trained animal darts in and seizes the valuables in his mouth, and rushes out to the place where he expects to find his master. The confirmation by the Senate of General James B. Longstreet as Surveyor of the port of New Orleans, was by a vote of 2*> to 10?but one more than a quorum. The South Carolina Senators were divided. Sawyer favoring and Robertson opposing. The majority of the Southern Senators favored Longstreet. When the vote was taken, it is stated, several Senators paired off, and it was lucky for Longstreet the vote was had at the time, as in a few minutes the Senate would have been left without a quorum, the Senators dropping out one by one. \et the vote for confirmation was a strong one, there being 15 majority, and would indicate. at least, that the Republicans are willing to reward Southern leaders who become members of their party and supporters of their policy. This ?and nothing more. Incorrect and incomplete lists have been published of the States which have acted upon the proposed Fifteenth amendment to the constitution. The following statement has been carefully prepared, and is believed to be correct: Kansas ratified the amendment February 27 ; Louisiana and Nevada,, March 1; Missouri, March 2; West Virginia, March 3; North Carolina, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, March 5; Maine and South Carolina, March 11; Massachusetts, March 12; Arkansas, March 15; and Pennsylvania Mardh 25. The Assembly of New York ratified the amendment March 17 ; it is yet to be acted upon by the Senate. The Legislatures of Missouri, Kansas and Nevada, in their haste to act uj>on the amendment previous to adjournment, ratified a telegraphic report of it, and, as there were errors in that copy, their action is declared to be incomplete. This being the case, the Legislatures of those States must again act upon the amendment at their next session. The Legislatures of Georgia and Delaware, on the 18th of March, rejected resolutions ratifying the amendment. The Legislature of Rhode Island postponed its consideration until May. Several Democratic members of the Indiana Legislature resigned their seats in that body to prevent, through lack of a quorum, the ratification of the amendment (?uquiw. YORKVILLE, S.

Having effected a satisfactory arrangement for procuring a larger sized Press, we offer for sale the one with which the Enquirer is at present printed. It is a "Guernsey Cylinder Press"? bed 31x44?in good order, and will be" sold at a bargain. Taking into consideration the rapidity with which it works, it can be bought for less than "a hand press" with the same sized bed. For further particulars, address L. M. Grist, Yorkville, a c. ; LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Oar friends throughout the county will confer a Bpecial favor on us and the readers of the Enquirer, by informing us of any matters of general interest which may transpire in their respective i neighborhoods. Furnish the facts in each case as briefly as possible, and we will put the information in a shape suitable for'publication. The names of persons giving U3 information must accompany their communications; not for publication, but as an evidence of good faith on the part of the writer, and for our own private use. ? -? SOUTHERN MANUFACTURES. Every day we discover new evidences of the rapid increase of the manufacturing interests of the South. To-day the Enquirer contains the card of Mr. P. P. Toale, of Charleston, an extensive manufaturer of sashes, blinds, doors, and bouse trimmings of every description. THE WEATHER. We have had a most tantalizing spell of weather in this section. First, a dry spell of two weeks, and then, just when it was the right time to plant ootton?cold, but at the same time?dry. The heavens are lowering, but full of rain, and the gound is almost baked. So far as we have learned, however, the fruit is uninjured, and unless we have an untimely frost, a good crop of peaches and apples may be expected in York county this year. AN EMPTY JAIL. That well known institution, "Glenn's Hotel," so-called, we learn, is at present without boarders, the last guest of the county having left the "hotel" more than a week ago. This is the first time since the war that the jail has been empty. The year of jubilee seems to have come, and we hope our worthy Sheriff will not be troubled with board1 TT- : ?1! ers lor a long time to come, xie i? ?iwt 01 an omious to entertain public guests; but if they will insist upon sojourning with him, he will take the very best care of them?they may rest assured of that. ? ? TOWNSHIP ELECTIONS. An election was held in Broad River Township, in this county, on the 7th instant, for three Selectmen, a Constable, a Clerk and a Surveyor. The balloting for Clerk resulted in a tie, which renders a new election necessary. For the other officers the following is the result: Selectmen.?J. A. Hope, D. C. McKinney, W. T. Hartness. Constable.?D. C. Crosby. Survey en-.?R. G. Whitesides. We learn that the elections in the York Township, which includes Yorkville, will be held on Friday, of next week, the 23d instant, and at Brattonsville, for Bcthesdn Township, on Monday next, 19th instant. BETHEL PRESBYTERY. This organization met on Thursday last at Unity Church, near Fort Mill, and was opened by a sermon from Rev. J. S. Bailey, Moderator of the last session. Rev. W. W. Ratchford was elected Moderator for the present session, and Rev. J. E. I White clerk. There was a full attendance both of visitors and members. The Presbytery declined to sanction the election of other than members of the Presbyterian church, in full communion with the same, as trustees of Davidson College. Mr. llobt Miller was received, as a candidate for the ministry, under the care of Presbytery. Mr. John L. Wilson, a student of theology at Columbia Seminary, was examined and having passed a satisfactory examination, was licensed to preach the gospel. The affairs of the Yorkville Female College werp entertained with more than usual interest. | and it was resolved that the debts of that institution be liquidated forthwith. The Presbytery adjourned to meet at Unionville, next October. THE MIRROR OF TYPOGRAPHY. We are pleased to acknowledge the reception of the "Mirror of Typography," a quarterly published in New York, by Thomas H. Senior & Co., devoted exclusively to matters pertaining to printing. Asa specimen of the ''black art," it, in our judgment, very nearly approaches perfection, and should be in the hands of every printer in the land who loves the art. It will be sent to printers who favor the publishers with their names and ad dress. Mr. Senior, one of the publishers, is now on a tour in the South for the purpose of acquainting the craft with the merits of the celebrated "Campbell Printing Presses," for which he is the general agent. He gave us a call a few days ago, when we incontinently "caved" and gave him an ordei for one of these incomparable machines, with which to increase the size of the Enquirer, itf beauty, and ice hope, its circulation! THE FENCE QUESTION. It is high time for our farmers to make up theii minds as to the propriety of a fence law. Accord. ing to our understanding of this matter, the question is simply as to whether they are to fence up their crops or their live stock. There is much tc be said on both sides of the question; but, we believe, there is no doubt as to the relative cost oi fencing. It seems to be a settled fact that it coste less to fence in the live stock of a country than its crops. The chief objection to a law requiring the stock to be fenced in is based on other considerations than expense. It is contended that owners of stock have not, in all cases, pasture and running water enough to warrant the shutting up of theii stock. It is, doubtless, more convenient to the majority of the people of this county to let their cattle run at large; but is it really more economical? Would > . . tbey not really have a less burden to bear, if they ( kept up a good pasture fence, and were freed from the trouble of keeping up a fence around all their crops? We aire no partizan of either side in.'thig : controversy; our sole object in bringing it up is to keep our readers posted as to the course of events. : From all we can learn, we are satisfied that an ef- } fort will be made to get a law from the next legislature, requiring stock to be fenced in and allowing 1 crops to lie out The farmers are the proper per- * sons to decide this question, and to them we leave e it *" " 1 OUR CONGRESSMAN. \ The committee on elections having reported Mr. Simpson ineligible, the only question to be decided t by Congress was whether or not Mr. Wallace is i entitled to the seat Congress has adjourned with- j out deciding this question; but a sub-committee was appointed, with power to send for persons and t papers, who are to sit during the recess of Con- [ gress, and to whom Mr. Wallaoe is to submit such \ evidence as he thinks will prove that he was elect- 1 ed. If this committee can see the point, they will < report him entitled to the seat. If they are not t convinced that he was elected, they will report the 6 seat vacant In either event, Congress must take t some action in the case, which cannot be done until next session. We will, therefore, be without t representation until next Deoeraber. After that ( time we will either have Mr. Wallace for our re- \ 1 presentative, or hold a new election to fill the va- t cancy, just as Congress may determine. ( ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS. ( Congress adjourned last Saturday, until Decern- r ber next, unless sooner called together by the President. The country will not lose anything by the departure of its legislators to their homes. On the ^ contrary, a sense of relief pervades all our exchanges in making the announcement. The laws of the f land will stand as they are for. nine months at least, t which is, of itself, no small benefit If ever a j country suffered from too much legislation, it is j ours. The constitution and laws have been so much tinkered that they are hard to recognize. So long as Congress remained in session, there was no telling what it would do next, and there was a ^ general feeling of uneasiness on this account, as it is well known that Congressional legislation is not j, done on any known principles but those of party or personal interest It is emphatically true that the best thing Congress has yet done was to adjourn. An extra session of the Senate, to begin last t *r 1? 1 Proclrlonf fn pnn. Jionuay, hum uceu uuicu uj iuv ^ firm nominations. That body will consequently . remain in Washington for a week or two longer. CONGRESSIONAL NEWS. i On the 6th, the Senate passed the bill to remove political disabilities, afteradding a number of names to the list contained in the bill. A resolution allowing compensation to Southern Senators from * the second session of the 40th Congress was tabled. This is the second effort made in behalf of recon- 1 ' structed Senators. They first wanted pay for the 1 whole term of that Congress; but as they were not r admitted until toward the close of the last session, the Senate would not grant them pay for services not rendered. The nomination of Charles M. Wilder, colored, as postmaster of Columbia, S. C., was confirmed. He is the first negro confirmed by the Senate. A bill to pay certain Southern revenue officers, who were unable to take the test , oath, was passed. The persons to whom it refers, } are those appointed by Secretary McCullough just . after the war, when he could not find "loyal" men competent to do the wofk. The passage of this bill is a simple act of justice to officials who could not have been paid for their services without it. ] In the House, a bill for taking the census of the United States in 1870 was passed. It includes < divorce statistics. The Senate Tndian appropria- ( tion bill was passed, with some amendments. It | goes back to the Senate for concurrence in the i amendments. ' On the 7th, the Senate passed a bill re-organizing < the Judiciary System of the United States, with < some amendments. It goes back to the House. 1 The Vice-President laid before the Senate a < message from the President, recommending that, < before adjourning, Congress shall provide for the ] ' submission of the Virginia constitution to the j people some time during May or June next, at j an election to be held under the direction of the < military commander of the district, with a view to i the submission of the constitution, as adopted by j the people, to Congress at the commencement of < the next session, and the early admission of the i State to representation in Congress. The message j makes a similar recommendation as to Mississippi. In the House, Butler called up his bill to provide a provisional government for the State of ( Georgia. It was the occasion of a long debate, j but was at length laid aside without action upon | it A committee of conference on the Indian ap- | propriation bill was appointed. The President's j message was read, but was not referred to any committee; the reconstruction'committee, to which it properly belongs, having already expressed itself ( in opposition to the views of the President. < On the 8th, a resolution was introduced in the 1 Senate, making the adoption of the loth (Univer- 1 sal Suffrage) amendment an essential precedent to J the admission of representatives from Virginia, Mississippi and Texas. The President's message < was discus, ed, but no action was taken with refer- t , ence to it. The Senate is in favor of postponing ] action in the premises until December. In the House, Hoge, the minority candidate l from the 3rd Congressional district of South Caro- ^ , lina, took his seat A bill authorizing the sub- j mission of the constitutions and the elections of s State officers and members of Congress, in Virginia, Mississippi and Texas, was passed by a vote of i 125 to 24. It authorizes the President to order 1 elections, at his discretion ; also authorizes him to ' submit the entire constitutions or separate provi- . sions, and forbids elections in Texas, until authori- t i zed by the President. The commanding general ( j may, with the approval of the President, suspend f | any existing State law in either of the three States c j deemed oppressive, until action by the Legisla- c | tures, which shall assemble on the fourth Thurs- . j day after ratification is promulgated by the com- ( I manding general. i j On the 9th, in the Senate, the bill authorizing ^ I elections to be held in Virginia, Mississippi and ' Texas was passed by a vote of 44 to 9, with several . amendments. The clause authorizing the Com- j manding Generals to suspend the laws in certain ( cases, was deemed oppressive, and stricken out. j An additional clause was adopted, declaring that ( the restoration of these States should not be regard- ! ed complete until Congress had approved their ? action. The amendment requiring the Mates i named in the bill to pass the l oth amendment was < adopted by a vote of 30 to 20. I In the House, the bill to remove the political i disabilities of parties therein named was read in 1 full and passed by a vote of 107 to 30. The Seni ate amendments to the bill providing for elections ' \ in Virginia, Mississippi and Texas were concurred 1 in by the same vote. Mr. Paine, of Wisconsin, from the committee ' on elections, reported a resolution that all persons 1 claiming seats in the House from the third and < fourth congressional districts of South Carolina, 1 except such as may be reported as ineligible by the ' i committee on elections, shall, on or before the 1 i 15th of April, file with the clerk of the House the ' grounds upon which they claim seats: and th<> 1 F committee on elections is authorized to appoint a 1 i sub committee, to sit during the recess, and take i testimony. Adopted. ! i The meaning of this is that Messrs. allnce and J Hoge are to furnish a sub-committee, during re- , ! cess, with the evidence on which they claim to be t ; elected. ' On the 10th, Congress adjourned at 12 o'clock, ( sine die. There was nothing of importance done ' by either House. The President signed the Vir- , ginia, Mississippi and Texas election bill, and it t . has become a law. i 30LUMBIA CONTRIBIITOMAL; MY J,"woOI) DAVIDSON.

Let him that wishes to escape the languor, the everish flush, and the actual disease incidental to his season, stop eating so much meat and butter; (at vegetables and fruits; drink no stimulants; valk slowly r never putt off-any clothes on coming leated into the house, until comfortably cool; and teep fires night and morning until June. Is all this too much trouble ? Is it less trouble o be sick ? Then, be sick; and enjoy all the luxuies of sickness. Agriculture.

That portion of our community that had the jood judgment to attend the Concert given by young )arri, on the 6th, enjoyed a rare musical treat. Although Mr. Koepper assisted with his mature lulture, and Mrs. Carri accompanied on the piano, he special charm of the evening was the Paganiniike skill and matchless art of the jtunc cleve, Ferdnand Carri. The most marvellous feat of the >ccasion was his rendering ofPaganini's Wtchex Dance upon the violin. Among the other pieces -taken from De Beriot, Crersey, Vieuxtemps, 3aur, Arditi and A slier?perhaps the 6 th Air Yarie of De Beriot won most general applause; rat there were those who liked best Vieuxtemps' Last Hose of Summer; and some, Paur's Cascade. Young Carri is soon to make a tour of concerts brough the State, and afterwards the South. We rust he will be received with that appreciation vhich his wonderful talents and culture, for one so Tftnncr. sn thnrouchlv entitle him. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

The following Bill was introduced in the United States Senate on the 6th inst., by Senator L J. Bobertson, of this State, It was read twice, eferred to the select Committee on Disabilities, ind ordered to be printed: Be it enacted hy the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress asscmUed, That any person laboring inder political disabilities as provided in the Foureenth Amendment to the Constitution of the Unied States, or from inability to take the oath of fuly 2d, 1862, is hereby released from the same on jouiplyinjr with the following conditions, that is to lay, provided such person shall make the following leclaration under oath before the clerk of any ;ourt of record establised at the place of domicil of inch party: 4'IV , of do declare hat I recognize the supremacy of the Constitution if the United States, and all laws made in pursuince thereof; that I will support and maintain the Union of the States against all enemies, domestic tnd foreign ; that I will not yield support to any iretended government, authority or power hostile hereto: that I will demean myself as a good citi* i .1 P" V.! _ . 1 :en, supporting good order, tolerance 01 political ipinions, and freedom of the elective franchise:" I'roruled, That a copy of said declaration, officially ertified by the clerk of the court before whom it is nade, shall first be filed for record in the office of ;he Secretary of State of the United States: And troridul further.

Closing Debate in Congress. Mr. Butler, of Massachusetts, has the high honor of attracting public attention oftener than uiy man in Congress; but it is in away peculiarly his own. Having a great taste for personalities, he can never participate in a debate without getting into a quarrel, and he usually gets the worst if all his quarrels. Still he cannot restrain his pugnacious propensities, and so frequent have been his encounters that Congress would not be Uongress without Ben. Butler. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun gives the following account of Butler's last appearance on the arena: During all the night session of the House on Friday night there was a little breeze between Gens. Butler and Schenck, a parting shot ot> each side, tvhich momentarily roused the House. The matter jrew out of the debate on the whiskey and tobacco :ax bill and insinuations heretofore made by Generll Butler, and repeated on Friday night In reply, jreneral Schenck used some very pointed and oit?r expressions. He said, among other things, that ie admired an open foe, for he knew then where :o find him and what course to pursue, but he had he utmost contempt for the dastard who would rot only deliberately lie, but who, by insinuating remarks, added cowardice to the falsehood, and h< thanked God that his disposition did not carry hin in that direction, and that he never engaged in thai sort of a contest. ' General Butler, who had been oo one of tw lounges on the democratic side of the House, hen appeared upon the scene, and coolly smoking hi cigar, walked over to his seat. Mr. Logan, wh< had also made much opposition to the bill, aske( Mr. Schenck if he alluded to him. Mr. S. replier negatively. Mr. Butler here desired to ask a ques tion, and everbody was on the qui vive to knov what was coming. The Massachusetts membe avoided the direct question, but asked Mr. Sehend if he had never read of the Pharisee who said hi thanked God that he was not as other men. Mr Schenck said he had, and added that the gentle man from Massachusetts was perfectly famHia with it, doubtless, because everything that smack ed of hypocrisy was familiar tp the gentleman however it might come. This created a moment ary sensation, but it soon passed off apparently, al though Gen.

The feeling in favor o doing away with fences, except for pastures, is grad ually increasing. These are a few of the advanta ges that would result from the change. Much la bor and timber would be saved. One-fifth of thi rails on any ordinary plantation would be sufficien for pastures. We would look to the improvemen of our stock when compelled to keep it enclosed Then we could cultivate much land that is now ly ing idle. In the old fields thrown out there ar many acres of good land, but being in small lots i will not pay to fence. And when destructive fire sweep across our country, the loss would be triflinj so far as fences are concerned. There would b no quarrelling amongst neighbors as to a lawfu fence. Any fence would be lawful that would se cure a man's own stock. We would like for th people to consider this question, for perhaps it wiJ come before them one of these election days. We have noticed a few licensed whiskey shop in our community. They are vulgarly called dog geries, but with great injustice to the dog. W> have heard of no negro taking out license. He i oithpr a hove it. mornllv. or not ud to it pecuniarily Hard to tell which. Viewing it from oar stand point, it does not work well. Men are often re ported drank and disorderly. A very strong temp tation is held out to the negro. He is weak jns there. The tavern-keepers generally have a ver; short and simple creed. Art. 1. Money, honestly Art. 2. Money. Art. 3. Money, any way. Wi would ask any and^very one in this business, wha he expects to gain. Money, according to his creed What! money?at the expense of character Money?at the sacrifice of manliness and virtue Money?every dollar of which will be a weigh dragging the owner of it downwards and devil wards. Away with such money?away with th dram-shops?away with their creed. In the country there is a want of society. Th material is here, but it connot be got togethei We need social gatherings of some kind, in orde that the people of the same neighborhoods, am even different ones, may be thrown together am spend a pleasant day. One only half lives whei he sits at home week after week, and holds n communion with his neighbors. The Spring tim is now on us, and we would suggest that fishin, parties, pic-nics, or anything else, be got up, s that the young and old may all have a little varia tion from the usual monotony of life. A little fu now and then is good for the old; it is absolute! necessary for the young. In thickly settled neigb borhoods tableaux, charades, or some similar am instructive amusement, might be prepared. D not sit with folded hands and permit the wine c life to evaporate, leaving only the dregs to b drunk. P. April 10, 1869. For the Yorkrille Enquirer. WHAT SHALL WE DO? Yes, that's the question; and it's not easily an swered, either. I and Sally have been talking th matter over, and we can't come to any conclusior One thing is very plain, that we are going to th dogs with the speed of one of those two-wheele machines called velocipedes. By '"we" I don' mean myself and Sally, for we don't expect to g alone; but I mean the country generally. Mi Sprague says, we, e. the country, are financial! going very fast, and he, being a good Republican is good authority. And then, we Southern pec flint it ia "nil pnl (Jic uavc 5U(. luii wivu.i iwiwtf uv %MMW .? 4W w, ton and no corn" with our farmers; and that wi bring us all into the great highway of going to th dogs. There is no mistake about it. The paper throughout the South tell us that the farmers ar planting cotton, without caring about corn, am this against the warnings of bitter experience. What shall we do ? Shall we continue to expos tulate and argue the folly of the plan, or shall w say nothing and let the consequences come upoi us? The question has been argued by able heads agriculturists and economists, but to no purpose so it seems to me that we must let the matter tak its course and abide by the consequences. Planters are busy now putting in the cotton, am I and Sally feel the effect very sensibly. Why bless your soul, they are so busy, they can't fini time to send in their surplus butter, eggs, chicken and other indispensable luxuries to people wh depend on buying such things. I and Sally hav not seen a pound of butter for sale for about si; weeks, and as for eggs, I have a faint remembranc of having seen some during cold weather. Per haps the cows have all gone dry, and the hens t< setting; but I think it is owiug to the fact tba everybody is planting cotton, and would rather le the butter and eggs spoil than to waste time ii sending them to market. Pity our sorrows, and tell us what we shall do emigrate, turn farmer and plant ootton, or "grii and bear it," and you will much oblige a constan reader and a MECHANIC. P. S.

The President ^ thinks this ought not to be done until some provi sion has been made to restore to the Union snch e unreconstructed States as arc still ont in the cold. 1 The message stirred up some bile in the grave and reverend assembly to which it was addressed. But 8 it lias had its effect Congress has passed just '* such a bill as he desired. The message is as fot e lows: s To the Senate and Ilowte of Repraentatica:? While I am aware that the time in which CongresB " proposes now to remain in session is very brief, K and that it Is its desire, as far as is consistent with " the public interest, to avoid entering upon the f general business of legislation, there is one sulyect y which concerns so deeply the welfare of the coon try, that I deem it my duty to bring it before you. e I have no doubt that you will concur with me in 4 the opinion that it is desirable to restore the States which were engaged in the rebellion to their pro' per relations to the Government and the country, ? at as early a period as the people of those States t shall become willing to become peaceful and order. Iy communities, and to adopt and maintain sucb e constitutions and laws as will effectually secure the civic and political rights of all persons within their borders.

The convention of thepeon pie of Virginia, which met in Richmond, on Tuesy day, December 3d, 1867, framed a Constitution for i- that State, which was adopted by the Convention j on the 17th of April, 1868, and I desire respctfally to call the attention of Congress to the propriety . oi providing by law, for the nolding of an election * in that State, at some time during the months of e May and June next, under the direction of the Military Commander of the District, at which the question of the adoption of that Constitution shall be submitted to the citizens of the State. And if this should seem desirable, I would recommend that a separate vote be taken upon such parts as may be thought expedient, and that at the same i- time and under the same authority, there shall be e an election held for officers provided under such ! Constitution, and that the Constitution or such parts thereof as shall have been adopted by the ? people, be submitted to Congress on the first Mond day of December next, for its consideration, so that t if the same is then approved, the necessary steps o will have been taken for the restoration of tne .
