I'm a modest man?very-but IVe never lost a pica yune by it in my life ; because it's a scarce commodity among candidates : 1 thought I would mention it, for fear if I didn't you would never be lucky in find ing it out. Candidates are generally considered as nuisances, but they are not; they are the politest men in the world, shake you by the hand, and ask how's your familv, what's the prospect for crops, Ac. I'm the politest man in the State. I am not only the politest man, but the best elec tioneer?you ought to see me shaking hands with the variations?:he pump handle and the pendulum, the cross-cut and wiggle-waggle: I understand the science perfectly. If any of the country candidates wish instructions, let thern come to me. Fellow-citizens; I was born?if I had noi been I wouldn t have been a candi date?but was going to tell yoi where. It was not in the Mississippi, but 'was on the north side of the negro line ; yet that is not a compliment, as the negroes are mostly born on the same side. I started in the world as poor as a church mouse, vet I come honestly by my poverty, for I inherited it; and if \ did. start poor, no man can say but that I've held my own pretty well. Candidates generally ask you if you think they are qualified, &c. Now, I don't ask your thoughts-I ask you votes. Why, there's nothing to think of except to watch that JSwau's name is no* on your ticket: if it is. think to scratch it off and put mine on. I'm certair I m competent?for who ought to knov better than I do? Nobody. _ ^ wiH fcllow that Sv an is trie best au ditor?that is till I'm elected. Then pc?haps it is not proper for me to sav any thing mora, let, as an honest man I'm bound to say that it's a grievous air to hide any thing from my fellow-citizens. TLoretore I say ii s my private opiuion, publicly expressed, that Ml make the be.< t auditor ever in the United States. Tis not for honor I wish to be auditor for in my own county I was oflVred an office that was all honor, coroner; wbich I respectfully declined. The auditor 8 office is worth some $5,000 a year, and I am in lor it like a thousand of brick To show my goodness of heart, IJ1 make this offer to my competitor. I- am sure of being elected, and he will lose some thing by the canvass; therefore I am willing to divide equally with him, and make these two offers: I'll take the sal ary, and he may havo the honor; or he may have the honor, and I'll take the salary. In the way of honors, I have received enough to satisfy me for life. I v^Dt out to Mexico, eat pork and beans; slept in the rain and mud, and swallowed everything except live Mexicans. When 1 was ordered to "go," went; "charge," charged : "and break for th^ehaperell!" you had better believe I beat a quarter nag in doing my duty. My competitor, Swan, is a bird of golden plumage, who has been swimming for the last four years iu the auditor's pond at $5,000 a year. I am for rota* tion. I want to rotate him out, and to rotate myself in. There's plenty of room for him outside of that pond, there fore pop in your votes for me?I'll pop him out, and pop myself in. I am for a d vision of labor. Swan says he has to work all the time with his nose down upon the public grinding Jtone. Four years must have ground it to a pint. Poor fellow, the public ought not to insist on having the handle of his mug ground clean off. I have a large, full grown nose, and tough as sole leath jr. I rush to the post of duty. I offer it up as a sacrifice. I clap it on the Srindstoue. Fellow-citizens, grind away, Lill I holler enujf , and that'll be sometime first. Time's most out. Wall, I like to for got to tell you my name. It's Daniel? [for short, Dan ; not a handsome name, lor my parents were poor people, who ived where the quality appropriated all .he nice names; therefore they had to ;ake what was left and divide around unong us?but it's as handsome as I *m)?R. Russell. Remember, every one )f you, that it's not Swan. 1 am sure to be elected; so one and all, great and small, short and tall, when irou come down to Jackson, after the election, stop at the auditor's office?the atch-string always bangs out?enter without knocking, take off your things, md make yourself at home. Dr. Beaumont.?While this weli cnown Wesleyan preacher was giving >ut his second hymn, in Waltham street mlpit, Hull, ?ngland, on Sunday morn ng, he suddenly expired. lie was struck lown just as his lips had uttered the first ,wo lines of the following verse : "T< rr nli le the lis* archangel: jnga, lt<; bitirs Irt: laef b<liind ins wings: And rinks of shining throne* Around, Fall W'TkL ipping aiiu aU the ground.'' The effect upon the congregation who j witnessed this solemn scene, may be magined, but cannot be described. A general shViek interrupted the hymn; and .he dyiug preacher on being borne into .he vestry, was found to be dead. His expectant hearers slowly and sadly dis persed, save those who performed the melancholy place of bearing his lifeless x>dy to the Lome which he had so lately eft, a living man. Dr. Beaumont was, kfter the late Dr. Newton, the most pop llar man in the Methodist ministry. - ^ (?7* Iu Cuba, the practice in vogae in respect to interments is not to have the xjffln buried with the body, so that the >ame coffin may answer lor hundreds of unerals. In rural villages there is a >ublic coffin, as we have m our villages,. i public hearse. I < A Cottage on Runners?Travklkss to the West.?Last Saturday our atten tion was it traded to rather a strange looking vehicle for this part of Wisoon sin in 1865, where railroads are about to intersect each other. Quite a fair sized house was observed to be slowly raring through our streets, drawn by four pair of heavy, stout oxsn. It was, in feet, a pioneer's dwelling, with its furniture and group of inmates on a journey to some new place of residence?in some secluded wild wood, miles away from any other harran habitation. A pipe-chimney rose above the roof, out of which a volume of smoke was rolling. The interior was divided into rooms. Around the fire some half a dozen young heads were crowding, for it was pretty cold, while the wife was discharging her domestic duties, apparently engaged in getting dinner. The sturdy and adventurous hec.il of this emigrant establishment was attending to the out door business, walk* ?ng UsivL' his patient cattle, and urging them forward as fast as possible, seeming apprehensive that the sleighing might fail before he reached his destination.? [W aterto'sn (Wis ) J?em., 15. TnF.ni Naves.?A correspondent of the Troy Budget gives the following as the names of the Washington correspondents of some of the principal journals : Francis S. Grand, a German, of the Baltimore Sun and Philadelphia Ledger; K. T. Kingman, of the Baltimore Sun, Charleston Courier, and New York Jour nal of Commere; Edward Hartc, of the the New York Courier, Gazette and Phil adelphia North American : J. W. Situon tou, of the New York Times ; A. Li. Evans and ex Senator Wesoott, cl the New York Licra-d ; J. S Pike, and Ma jor Macrea, of N. 0., of the Tribune; Mr. Thayer, of the Evening Post, Na tha i Sargent, of the New Orleans Bee and Raleigh Register. Men of Rkflbctiox.?The following tho lght is profoundly true. It explains the failures of men of rtflectiou in a reg nla~ course or life of action; the great typ; of whom is llauilet the Lane: ?' Those who htvc the largest horizon cf thought, the most extended vision in re gard to the relation cf things, are not remarkable for self-reliance and ready judgment. A man who sees liroitedly and clearly is surer of himself, and more direct in his dealings with circumstances and with others, than a man whose many sided capacity embraces an immense ex tens of objects and objections; just as they say a horse with blinkers more surely chooses his path, and is lees likely to shy.?Mrs. Jamifson. Omaha City.?Cuiaha city, the present capital of the newly organized Territory of Nebraska, is described as containing from sixty to eighty houses, located on a rising ground on the banks of the Mis souri river. The government house, oc cupied by the Governor and Council, is a two-story brick, and the priucipal hotel s also two stories, with a wing, the rest if the houses being of all sorts and sizes. In August last, there was but one small tiut in this place, but now it contains taverns, stores, shops, dwellings, and a government fully organized in all its de partments. Nebraska seems to be get ling aloKg faster than Kansas, although much more silently. !?7*If you have great talents, indus try will improve them; it moderate abili ties, industry will supply their deficien :ies. Nothing is denied to well-directed abor: nothing is rver to be attained vithout it. Remember, a man's genius s always in the beginning of life as much inknown to himself as to others?and it s only after frequent trials, attended vith success, that he dares think himself ?qual to the undertakings in which those vno have succeeded, have fixed the ad niration of mankind. Death of the Righteous.?I met on the sea shore, said the esteemed poet Badi, a pious man who had been attack ed by a tiger and hortibly mutilated, lie tras dying, and suffering dreadful ago-^ lies. Nevertheless, his features were :alm and serene, and physical pain >eeined to be vanquished by the purity >f h'S soul. "Great God!" said he, "I hank thee that I am only -suffering rom the fangs of this tiger, and not of -emorse." Sextencrd to the Legislature.?H. Jratz Browne, Esq., editor of the St. xuis Democrat, whose seat as a mem >er of the Missouri House of Represent atives was contested by a Mr. Goodleti, las been sentenced to serve out the re nainderof the term. Editors are pro verbially unfortunate. On a Temperance Foundation.?The Detroit (Mich) Advertiser says, "the last levice of the rumsdlers which has come o light, is the establishment of a drink pg ptand on the ice midway across the )etroit river. Standing so near thu wundary the prohibitory law maf never Jose it, but it will be pretty sure ty move 'in the spring." P0LIT 108 AND CHARITT?SELDOM CO EXISTENT.?It is rather a singular fact hat among the varieties of parties that lave ruled in Massachusetts, within the ast ten years, none have been found to ripe from the statute the disgraceful law >f imprisonment for debt. XT Mountains are considerable up aad lown in Vermont.
