i(,iir;iiu> the usual advertisement for proposals to
, :in \ the mails in this State, i'or four years, from
Julv I't l>^-*)9 to July 1st The schedules
,t till' various routes from and near this place, in
\vhi(.'h this coiumunity is interested, are generally
iiiRiianged. The mail to R;Ueigh is to leave at o
r >1.. instead of 8 P. .^I., and that to High Point
It 1 P. M., instead of 12* P. M.; whilst the War-
siw mail is to be carried t'very day instead of six
times a week.
So far as we can see the contracts are to be made
without reference to tlie vehicle in which the
mails :*!*e to he carried. So that, if a person
liiiost's to take the yontraet on any present stace
line, he may carry the mail on horse-back if he
[ileases. This wiU probably work a very serious
iiimiivonience in many y>arts of the country, es-

.'^T.vTisTics.—An esteenjed correspondent sug-
the propriety of obtaining, in the Census
..II to be taken, more reliable statistics than we
have heretofore had on some j»oints. IFe thinks
that il tlie questions usually propjunded as t> ag-
riirulture were directed to tlu‘ ascertaiumeTit of the
- jihtu production, in^^tead of the total produc-
r.Mii. the intbrmation obtained would be more cer-
t:(iii and useful. Instead of asking a farmer liow
iiiMi li wheat he made, let him be a-sked how much
'iiid. So of corn, hay, cotton. \'c. The whole
luaiitity of corn produced is paraded in the (,'en-
-iiv SO is tbf pork. But that very corn was ooii-
'iiiiied by the lujg^ yielding the iKirk^and. thus ap-
ptar twice in the report, once as corn and agaiii
pork. Again, a j»rodigiou'J display of the hay
; ']! is made, but nin^tenths of that very hay is
■ii'unied upon the farm yielding it. and without
the next crop could not be made. It Is rus much
il fleiuent in farming as tht*lmplenients ued, and
• r> •npt;;r, like the pork from the corn, in tin
1 and horses fed upon it. All the world, sav^
■■>rn 'pondent. reali^^ that our people live web

Madder and Madder—theW ihuington Jour
nal. It wou t correct its untrue statements, either
the old ones or tin- new ones, but snaps and snarls
at the Ol'servi r and its Editors because
the y w ill not allow misrepresentations to gu unex-
jKjsed. 1 bis sort ol thing does ju;t hurt u.; we
have no reply to make to silly declamation. But
when the Journal makes another untrue statement
concerning us we shall expose it as usual. It would
be plea>ant tu hoj^e that the Journal would not
render thi.' necessary. But experience has shown
the folly of such a hupe. Everv now and then,
say once a week or siimething like that, the Jour
nal makes uj) its mind to ha\e nothing more to say
oJ' us or to us. But it comes ba«L-k to the charge
as regularly as clock work; we have to go through
the same process of exposing it, then have its a
buse and its "wun t notic*; us any more” to laugh
at, and by that time the thing is about ready to
i)‘gin again.
The Juurnal is always sure of one thing, happen

arrayed from its columns last Summer. It tells

Correction.—The New Haven Journal is re
quested to say, that a statemeut made in the
Hartford Times, and copied in other papers, re.s-
pecting the will of the Hon. H. L. Ellsworth, is
premature. The will has not been “approved,”
or oft'ered for probate. No direct legacy has
been made to Yale College. W’hatever of this
kind exists is resii!uury, and is contingent on the
settlement of au estate lying to a great extent in
wild lands. Hence no just estimate can be put
on the value, and the one given in the Times is
certainly a very great exaggeration.

Imagination in I)iseas>\—A good story is told
by a physician of Cincinnati about oneof his patients.
'I he sick man had rheumatic pains, which the
fJoctor thought would be relieved by nitrate oj
potash. The patient took the medicine for some
time, but was not much benefitted, and asked for
another remedy, which the Doctor prescribed.
A few days after he met him, and asked after his
health. “(Jh, I’m getting well. Doctor,” was the
reply, “but 'tain’t your medicine. I tried that
some time, till a neighbor told me of .something
he took fur his rheumatism, a very simple remedy.
I tried it, and it’s done me a great deal of good.”
“W'hat is it'/” said the Doctor.
“Oh, it’ s so simple I’m afraid you’ll laugh at
me if I tell you.”
T^‘ Doctor promised to control his risibles,
and the patient, after much urging, informed him
that it wa.s sahpetre!
The Doctor’t true to his promise. He
laughed quite heartily, and told the a^itonished
patient that nitrate of }>otash wa.s the chemical
name of the sub.stance known to commerce as
saltppfrd A pretty fair illustration, that, of the
influence of the imagination on
