It would lessen the burdens of many
who find it hard to maintain their plaoes in society,
it would lessen the foree of the temptation that often
had mon to barter their honor and honesty for display,
if there was lees strife in dress. At ohuroh people of
moderate oiroumstanoes would be more inclined to at-
tend. Universal moderation of dress at church, would
improve the worship of many wandering thoughts. It.
would enable all olasses of people to «ttend better in
unfavorable weather. It would lessen, on the part of
the rioh, the temptation of vanity. It would lessen,
on the part of the poor, the temptation to be envious
and malioious. It would save valuable time on the
Sabbath. It would relievo our means of a serious
pressure, and thus enable us to do'more good.

. An old rhymer says, "He who plants
pears plants for his heirs, referring to their Blow
growth, and at the same time hinting the selfish
idea that a man should plant for himself alono.
All solfish maxims are foolish. The man that
lants may reap. If ten years ago each farmer in
'exas had dovoted three days in the proper season
to setting out an orchard, how many would be en-
joying the fruit of their labors. Ten years from
to-day as many more will blame their present
want of forethought.

Wo may miss the fond looks that endeared us,
When wild, thoughtless boys, to our home,
But the many sweet voicos that checred us
Still follow us up as we roam.
Like the notes of a dove from the wildwood,
Whtírever our life-boat may glide,
The jf^es that 'raptured our childhood
Arewafted along o'er the tide.
Down the Ages these voices come, weighted
With mem'ries no cloud can o'er cast-
Rich argosies, heavily freighted
With wealth from the glorious past.
We may miss the soft eyes that were flowing
With tears, when we turned us from home*
But voices accompanied our going
Thai follow wherever we roam. /
A Warning to' Life Insurers.—A
policy of insurance waB taken out by James Mar-
tine in the International Life Assurance Company
of London, in 1851, for the benefit of his wife, in
the amount of $5000. The premium was regular-
ly paid to Start <fc Pearce, agents of the company
in North Carolina, until 1862, and from thy;
time to Pearce (Start having died,) until 1864,
when the death of Martine occurred. The wid-
ow then assigned the policy to Randolph B. Mar-
tine, who, on applying for payment, was retused,
and brought suit to recover. The defence main-
tained that the premium had not been paid since
1862, claiming that the firm of Start & Pearce
was their agent, and that at the death of one of
the partners the agency ccased. On trial a ver-
dict was obtained by plaintiff, from which an ap-
peal was taken and argued at the March sitting of
the State Supreme Court, General Term. Decis-
ion was rendered yesterday reversing the judg-
ment and ordering a new trial, on the ground of
error in the findings. Judge lngraham rendered
the opinion of the court, and held that the agency
ceased in the death of one of the firm.—N. Y. Tri-

Found Hanged.—A man by the
name of Thompson was hanged on Friday night
last, on the head waters of Clear Creek, in Mon-
tague county. Various rumors are afloat as to
the origin of the deed. One is that he was fol-
lowed by parties from Fannin county and hanged
by them because he assisted in hanging a man in
that county some time since. Another story is
that Thompson was hanged for stealing horses
and cattle. One thing is certain : Thompson
was found hanging by tho^pek, dead, to a limb of
a tree.—Gainsvillc Gazette.

The following we clip from Mr. Trum-
bull's speeoh delivered before the great meeting, held
in New York on the night of the 12th instant, to ad-
vance the Liberal Ropublioan policy of the approaoh-
ing Cincinnati Convention. It fully represents our
ideas of the so callcd Republicans in Texas of whom
Davis is the head :
Republicans oust be prepared to fnee and put down
the minions of a party, and the demagogues and hire-
lings and thieves and robbers who plunder the people
and who will excommunicato you from what tbey oall
the party, beoause they set themselves up to be the
No more liko the Republiean, are these plundorers
and thieves, a party of purity and honesty, than the
devil was like the angel Gabriel.
They will go on, not disoussing the issues of the
present day, no, but during the political campaign
these the same persons who engage in fighting over
again the battles of war, abolishing slavery, and put.
ting down the rebellion.
To your demand for an honest administration of the
Government, they will reply "you are a traitor to the
To your doraand for reform in the manner of ap«
pointing and removing from office, they will answer,
«We abolish slavery." To your demand for reform
they will answer, " We put down the rebellion."
With the living issues of the present they have no
oonoern further than to retain power in seeking to
resurreot those whioh are dead.

Clark was notified to appear before the
Election Committee this morning, to
show cause why he should be granted an
extension of time to take testimony, but
made an excuse to gain further postpone-
ment. It is certain his request will not
be granted. He has filed nothing but an
exAparte statement, while Giddings' case
is complete. An early decision in favor
of the latter is looked for.
Senate.—The Senate* adopted a reso-
lution declaring Abbott not entitled to
hie seat as Senator from North Carolina,
without division. • The Deficiency bill
wjis discussed, without finfitTiction.
House.—A number of bills granting
sions, removing political disabilities,
were introduced and referred to
committees. There was an animated de-
bite on the Goat Island bill, without
final action. The House is sitting to-
night on the Pension bill.
Matamoros, April 22.—Gen. Caval-
los and his command of 500 men and

reached here to-day. The General re-
lieved Gen. Palacios, whom he outranks,
and who has commanded here for the last
fdiur years, and inspected the defenses
and city immediately after his arrival.
Another steamer is expected herefrom
Yera Cruz to-morrow, with severa!hun-
dred more reinforcements, which will
place the city beyond the possibility of
capture by any force the revolutionists
can at present bring against it.
Rumors still prevail that Gen. Quiro-

ark the enemy were not within ten
miles of the city.

New York, April 8.—The London
News says Prince Bismarck is about to
summon to Berlin an international con-
gress to discuss present postal arrange-
ments of the world, and he has proposed
to lay before the members the following
proposals, as a basis for negotiation.
1. All the States of Europe, Russia in
Asia, Turkey in Asia, Canada, United
States, Algeria, otc., shall form one postal
2. That throughout "this union there
shall be adopted a uniform rate of pos-
tage of two pencc per half ounce.
3. That throughout the union newspa-
pers, printed matter, patterns, etcs, shall
be conveyed at the rate of a penny for
every two ounces.
4. That to all countries not included
in the postal union, double above rates
shall be charged.
5. The uniform registration fee for all
parts of the world shall be two pence.
The News thinks the scheme feasible
and that England should consent if other
nations concur. ""
