The President replied as follows :
Washington, August 1. Dear Sir:
I haveead your letter with amazement
and indignation. There is but one
mittigation of the perfidy, which it dis
closes, and that is found in the fact
that you - confess your share in it. I

confession comes too late to be of an
immediate use to the public service, ani
I can only say that while this is not
the first time I have been deceived and
misled by lying and treacherous repre

has so frankly ownedrhis greivous fault.
If any comfort isto be extracted: from
this assurance you are welcome to it.
Tlie Dred Scott Case.
What Chief Justice Taney Decided.
From tble N. Y. Journal of Commerce.
Dred Scott, who was a slave in
Missouri, brought suit to recover his
freedom, and used the United States
Court on the ground of being a citi
zen of a different State from the one
in which the defendant lived. He
claimed his freedom because his mas
ter had taken him into territory made
free by the act of Congress in what
is known as the Missouri Compro
mise. The case, after decision in the
Circuit Court, was taken to the Su
preme Court, and the final opinion
affirmed by the Supreme Bench, only
two Jnstices dissenting, was written
by Chief Justice Taney. This decis
ion, given in 1857, declared that
Scott could not sue in a Federal court i
because ne was not a citizen, ducige i
Taney did uot state, as often quoted,
that in his opinion "the negro had no
rights the white man is bound to
respect"; but that more than a cen
tury previous to the declaration of
independence negroes, whether slave
or free, had been regarded "as beings
of an inferior order, and altogother
unfit to associate with the white race,
either in social or political relations;
and so far inferior that they had no
rights which the white man was
bound to respect." This was stated
as a matter of history, and not as
the opinion of the court or any mem
ber of it.
An exchange says : "It is worth re
membering that no newspaper is
printed especially for one person any
more than a hotel is built especially
to please one guest. People who be
come greatly displeased with some
thing they find in a newspaper should
remember that the very thing that
displeases them is exactly the thing
that will please somebody who has
just as much interest in the paper as
they have. This is for you, gentle
reader. Cut it out and past it in your
hat." A citizen, speaking about news
paper criticism, said he would not
have a paper in his house unless it
Xully agreed with his idea of things.
"Then," remarked his elbow neigh
bor, "I fear you are destitute of read
in in your family." Honest criticism
is alway in order, and from it comes
development and a nobler being.
The Coinage op the Silver
Dollar. It is confidently expected
by the opponents of the silver dollar
that its coinage will be stopped by
Congress. The recent loan of gold to
the treasury by the banks of this city
was made expressly upon the as
surance that the gold would be need
ed only until the meeting of Congress
in December nexj, and this is the gen
eral opinion of bankers and merchants
in this section of the country. It seems
to us that any proposition looking to
a stoppage of the coining of the silver
dollar will probajbly meet the fame
fate in the new JAouse.ot .tfepresenia

The Southern Colored Youth.
-4 True View at Length From Yan
(.Hartford (Conn.) Times, July 28.
A Connecticut man who has been
traveling for several months through
the Southern States and seeing all
parts of that section as well as all parte
of the population, has written from
California hw views of the colored
FSple a Ae 8outh- ? 18 R Prk,vate
letter and was never written with any
idea 0f publication. The writter, like
the eentleman to whom t a written.
(a Hartford man,) is a Republican.
It is to be hoped that he takes too
sombre a view of the young men and
w.omea fftg PeoPIe- Bttt we
give a part of his letter :
"My Southern trip took in all the
South except Texas and a portion of
North Carolina. I could give you
quires as to the status or the negro.
The fact is, in a few words, that the
negro of to-day who-has just arrived
manhood is the most worth less of God's
creatures. He only works when he can
not steal to live, and, with enough in
his pocket to subsist for three days,
he is rich. Education (what little

Preaclie are otten the worst of all ;
they teach the damsels, even such as
are not viciously inclined, the path of
I il ' .till.
kji course mere are exceptions
but what I here say is true of the
masses. Those who were formerly
slaves are not included in my con
demnation. They are generally so
ber, industrious and good citizens.
They were taught to wrk ; and very
many of them (now middle aged or
old men)own the houses they live in
and have mouey laid away. It is of
those who have come upon the stage
since the war that I write j he young
negroes, men and women, of 20 to 25.
Their character and condition and the
future that is involved, not only for
them but for the South for there are
millions of thempresent a grave
question, Which is occupying the anx
ioua thoughts of the wisest men of that
section. As to the feeling toward the
North that is entertained by Souther
ners, you cau find but one sentiment
A Gander Guide. In Germany, an
aged blind woman used to be led to
church everv Sunday by a gander. He
would take ner to the door of the pew
where she sat. As soon as she was in
her place he would walk quietly out of
church, and occupy himself in the
churchyard, feeding on the grass till
the service was over and he heard the
i oeoole comiriff out of church. Then he
would go to the pew of his old mistress
and lead her home asrain. One dav the
- . r-J . .
minister of the ehurch called to see this
person at her own home. He found
that she had gone out, and he express
ed his surprise to her daughter that
they should let her go out alone.
"Oh, sir," replied the daughter, "there
is nothing to fear. Mother is not alone;
the gander is with her.
Strange attachments often spring
up between two animals, and the bond
is apt to be stronger if either one hap
pens to be suffering from any misfor
tune. A gentleman once owned a
blind horse which occupied the same
pasture with a flock of geese. A gan
der, seeing the difficulty of the horse
in getting about, left his companions
and attached himself to his bund
friend. All day long they kept to
gethor, the gander cackling constant
ly to give signs of his presence. He
would lead the horse to the best pas
turage and to water, and would ac
company him to the stall where they
had their meals together, the horse
often dropping a mouthful of food for
his feathered friend. When the poor
blind creature died the gander seem
ed utterly lost ; he wandered round
disconsolately for a week, refused to
eat, and at the end of that time had
grieved himself to death.
If the reader thinks that only kind
words are heard at the North at this
hour of mourning for the South and
its leaders he is far from the fact. At
Hillsboro, III., last Sunday, a preach
er by thename, of Hoffman, let out
his venom and took the noble ex
President Davis for lijs theme. He
"What an inscrutable Providence
is that which, allows traitors to live
while heroes and patriots to die. It
humiliates one that Jefferson Davis
should 4ive to see the death of Grant.
It may be a mercy of God to lengthen
the life of the culprits to gie them
time for repentance. And if that! is
the ground upon which Davis isspar
then raav we expect that he will
yet live a thousand years, for 1,000
vears of repentance will not equal the
mnirmitv of his traitorous offense.

Ice Soup for Overheated Drinkers.
"The latest drink1 said a Chicago
"artist "is 'iced soup You know
that in winter time we had beef tea,
steak tea and other hot drink?, but
iced soup or bouiluon is having a
great run, artd I believe that it has
come to stay. The lemonafle trade
has fallen off greatly Since tlie advent
of the soup. Men who are accustom
ed to mint juleps, etc., etc,: take to
the iced soup 'like a duck to water.7"
"When was the newdiink brought
"About a week ago a well known
'doctor came to the propriotors and
said that he hud a scheme that would
take. The bosses laughed at him.
Finally he induced them to put down
their names for a gallon, and it was
brought into the place in a brown jug.
Keep in a cool pioej nir hak well
before taking were the instructions
on the card. This was a kind of
chestnut, but I was told to put the
jug on ice, and I did so. Then gayly
decorated cards were hung up in the
place, and by and by we had a call
tor a glass ot bouillon. I poured out
a glassful, and, after seasoning it with
salt and pepper, handed it to the cus
tomer. It seemed to havfc touched
the right spot, for he said It' was the
best drink he had taken for years."
"How many brands are there ?
"Well, you can get tdmato, vegeta

thing is a success he'll introduce tur

day returnmig from market. He was
on horseback and behind him was a va-
lise filled with money. The rain fell
with violence, and the good old man
was wet to the skin. At this he was
vexed and murmured because God had
gived him such bad weather for his

of a thick forest. What was his ter

a robber with leveled gun, aiming at
him and attempting to fire ! But the 1
powder being wet by the rain, the gun
did not go on, and the merchant, giv
ing his horse thepur, fortunately!, had
time to escape. As soon as he found
himself sate he said to himseli: "How
wrong was I not to endure the rain
patiently as sent by Providence 1 If the
weather had lx?en drv and fair I should
not, probably, have been alive at this
hour, and my little children would have 1
expected my return m vain. Ihe ram
which caused me to murmur came at
a fortunate moment to save my life
and preserve my property."' It is thus
with a multitude of our afflictions; by
causing us slight and short sufferings
they preserve us from others far greater,
and of longer duration.- Ex.
Novel Plan to Catch Moles. A
farmer, proposes the following novel
plan for catching moles: Take two old
old cow horns and place them point to
rpoint, turning the hollows outward in
the track or the mole, and tnen replace
the earth over them. The mole will
come along soon an crawl intothe horn
just as far as he can go, and remain
there trying to get through, as
he cannot turn around, and moles nev
er go backwards. Scratch up and ex
amine your horns occasionally and you
will soon have your mole.
