Early oue morniDg, Miv Jones was seen seated in liis buggy, driving a spirited lu>rso, in pursuit of a girl to do housework. This was the'fourth day of the campaign, and bid. fair to prove as I unsuccessful as tho former ones, yet bo drove on, hdping against' all past experience, till meeting a neighbor, he reined in his borso. "Good-morning, Mr. Mason; can you tell me where I canifind a girl to do housework ? My wife is sick, land I. wish to got one for a few weeks—I ain willing to pay any price 1" "Indeed, Mr. Jones, that's a hard question; there's girls enough to be sure, but they won't do houseujork. Neighbor •Hardpan, down in the. hoi ow there, has hfJ&k dozen, Jbut I don't suipposo that you could get one fpr love or money. I've tried thtei^Sima1 and ingahi,- but they won't go oat.". • \ "Thank yqu," said Mr."Tones; "there'6 nothing like; trying.",! So snj-jng, be stopped at the dpor of Mr. Hardpaii. Detestable Meanness; ■The trial '.of McCrea •' for the murt < Clark," was to take place before Judj;e L^j compte at Leavenworth, in the district." which commenced its session on 17th That day this Judgo Lecompte gave the Counsel of the Prisoner, Gen. Lam MaJEmery,jlheir :bption^to swear to port the; Kattsasjaws, or to quit the Coi irt.- They embraced tie last alternative. T ie~ty» rant Jiidgd began thus to show his claw s. . / Tho next step' was more daring and iet< .a ■ ' table. AVe copy it as stated by an , eye-witi I»E<ipan; I ness; j Forty-eight Grand Jurors wore pfesont and Chief Justice Lecompte was about to Bwear -and impanel sixteen of them/ when McOrea's ponnsel moved that, the accused be Br )ught from prison that he might object io the ner of choosing the Grand Jury, and to chal- lenge for cause. One of the _Grand. Jurors engaged with Clark in the attack on McCrea ivhen tho latter ishotibim., Notwithstanding this fact the Judge overruled every motion tor the defendant, and also refused to sign a bill of exceptions, or explain by what rule he selected tho sixteen Grand Jurors. This oc- curred Sept. 17"i rv * . Kane and Lecompte are on a leveL . The tyranny of bothi areialike; the Kansas i udge adds to his cheating and meanness. But he was not alone; he had a gootf Jury to deal with. Lawyers! might bo battled and brow- beaten; it was not 80 easy to battle or brow- beat it. So tho Court adjourned on Mon- day, after sixteen Grand Jurymen wera im- panneled. • An ej'o-witness continues: , Next morning Lecompte secretly added- three moro to the Jury. On Thursday after- noon the Grand Jliry came into Couri. for instructions in the McCrea case. ' Instead of publicly instructing them the Judge sent them back to their room, and delegated R.R. Rees7 tho Chairman of the ruffian mob that attacked Phillips, to instruct them in their duties. Being still divided thdy again forced their foreman ta lead them into Court. Tho foreman,- who is one .of the fire eaters under Stringfellow, Atchison. & Co.) wj.s ex- ceedingly angry at their obstinacy) alid as he came into Court exelaiiiied, " They can't agree; three are for a presentment for mur- der, five f^r manslaughter,and eleven against finding any bilk" This annouueemout pro- duced a great sensation in court, am. the Judge, without instructing the Jury, tlat in stich" arcase, tbeiy should return the bill* "ignored," sent them .back to their rooir, and cau?cd other business to bo brought t efore them. A majority of the Jury, bow ever, being in favoiv of ignoring the bill ag ainst and a Free Country'. 'When I lived in la belle France,sare,zey nsed to say to >ne; " You should1 golto Amerique.

Now, the Spelling Iteform proposes to set aside alljthese anomalies, incongruities, self-coatradic- tidins and attending difficulties, by the substitu- ;tion of a Phonetic alphabet. Instead of six liun- jireddifferont representatives for-forty sdiinds, Phoneticians would have only forty. Many per- sons get the impression that the advocates- of Phonetifi spelling Would increase the nuniber of letterain the alphabet, and thus increase: the dif- ficulty: of learning. ;It is true that in thle Pho- netic alphabet there ate. more Letters than in the present, but: ih practical spelling there ate fat less representatives of sound on the Phonetic plan.. Oa that plan, one representative only for- each sound is emplojyed,"instead 6£-fifteen as how. And each letter is used in one Bense Ortiy, instead of four or toore as now. By this method the labor of learning reading, aud spelling would he dotte in as many months as it now takes yeara.l Who will deny that.the simple facts already presented tfendef such a^ assertion justifiable.—Iowa Planeef, : «| .

Susan Sophia can stand_ it to dance till midnight, then read noVels till daylight!, sleep till eleven o'clock in the morn- ing, eat hot cakes, and drink strong coffee for breakfast; beef soup, butter gravies, mince pies, and fruit puddings for dinper; pound cake, lemon tarts and half a dozen cups of green tea for supper; with cloves, chalk, charcoal^ and slate pencils for a desert. Poor weak stomach 1 Amelia Angelina is a pale, slim, delicate creature, yet she "can stand it" with her breast-bone pressed against her heart by- a tight dress, so that it can scarcely, beat! No wonder is it at times obliged to make a terrible" effort to free itself of its surplus ; blood. Amelia Angeline, too, is stronf enough to carry six or eight pounds of cotton batting, and a'small "cut of,cloth" about, her hips, wear thin shoes, and go "bare armed" in the "w inter. „ What dor that sAjs should hajve palpitation heart 1 ^. Now is it any wonder that' young ladies, managed in this way, Jare not able and 'w:l- linf to do housework ? Their dress, manner of living, habits of thinking, all have a direct tendency to engender and confirm disease. Hence spinal complaint, dyspepsia, heart dis ease, consumption, etc.! aro the legitimate re-, suits. If we would; have our daughters healthy, let us see that these and kindred evils are corrected. ( Lel them lay aside tho straight-jacket and adopt a dress which allows the free motion ot every joint and muscle, and tho fujl -ex- pansion of the chest; exchange their :novels for histories, biography, poetry, etc., take at least half ah hour's exercise ih tho open air dailyi during pleasant weather; retire and rise' eiirly; exchange-the hot cakes and; coffee for cool bread and pure water; eat no rich dinners or late suppers; open the blinds-, and let the light shine in upon them, if you would not have them look like plants which grew in tho-cellar; take them into the( kitch- en, ar d instruct them in the various branch- es of house wifery; do not be afraid of soil- ing their Ws—they »re mufch more easily ■' i 1 . i. t • ti-L/ft '. a-n/i rlrtiAWinr* cleansed called McCrea, refused .to act upon any other busi- ;ere to ness until his case was finally'"dispfetid of, and a won- of the o.™uow.tban:their hearts.

Since his encouragement of the ruffians of this neighbourhood, by showing a disposi- tion to? frown down all charges brcjught- a"ainst them, tho citizens of th© town have foun'd it necessary to appoint a special police, and the greater part of tho citizens are obliged to cal-ry arms to defend themselves from outrage. • • •••?<$£(' P. S. The night after tho' Court adjourn- ed,-Hughes, the captain of the ruffians who mobbed MiyPhillips, was seen with a gun prowling around the house ot Mr. P. from midnight until -four in the morning.

Fr, gives the following bribiant description of a sub-fflariho explosion, to re- move impediments to. the St. Jdhns harbor,: As we -were passing Chain Rock Battery, we noticed thg boats of Mr. Huested anchor- ed over the Merlin Rock, the removal of which bad been Completed during our visit, fcjr. Huested hailed lis, saying he would give us a parting saltite., Nearly. all the passen- gers were gathered on; the hurricane-deck at the time, looking their la3t oh the receding harbor. There was a movement on Mr. Huested's boat ; a handling of wires; a touch—and then followed a dumb, heavy ex- plosion which shook our. steamer—then not fifty yards from the spot. In a second a cir- cle of water, forty or fifty feet in diameter, over the rock, was violently agitated;, a nan- tower cirblo was hurled into tlie air to the height of thirty feet; and from tho center a sheaf of silvery jets sprang- seventy or eight feet above the surface of the sea. The enor- mous masses of water curved outward as they' ascended, and stood for an instant like colos- sal plumes wavibg against the sub, Which shone through their, tops and blinded our eyes with the diamond lustre. It was a -Great Geyser of the sea—a, momentary but sublime picture which no volcanic jVell of the Iceland valleys can surpass. As it fell) the shower of airy spray drifted down upon us, drenching ourselves and the decks, but cre- ating a sudden rain bow over the paddle-boxes —an arch of promise which spaded our Cotlrse for an instant,"and melted into air with the sound of our parting cheers. - • Hints to Sank Customers. . f ist j" Keep a good deposit; it will not only assist youiiu getting discounts, but an unexr pected call will not then put you in anxious locomotioh to borrow from a friend"; so you will save your friend, your credit, and your shins. ' ; . , 2nd. Offer for discount good business paper rather than accommodation notes. 3rd. Always apply for: discount some ljttle time before you need the money, as such customers are preferred. 5 4th. Circulate the Bills of the Bank, j 5tli-. Never let a note lie over that has your name on it 6th. Bear in mind that a bank is often short of funds; and however desirous the proprietors may be to serve customers, there are times when they-are not able to do so. j ! 7th. If a-young voyager upon the uncer- tain sea'of trade and traffic, wishes Bank accommodation; it is for his: interest to give in a true statement of his pecuniaiy condi- tion. This will ensure'hiitt all the Bank facilities his circumstances will warrant; and a; lack of such definite information often causes loans to be' withhold from worthy applicants. j Pluck Of a Dog in the Crimea.- The following account of the exploits of a dog in*the Crimea, w'aich W6 transl?te from tlie Gazette of Trieste, surpasses everything heretofore recorded of the . devotion and bravery of this uoble animal: S A great sensation has been paused in the camp of the Allies, by tlie heroic deeds of a d6g belonging to Col. Metmann, of the 73d Raiment of the Line. On the 16th of Au- g^ist, during the battle of lho Tchernaya, the quadruped- broke his chain, fought. in the rahks of the arhiy; saved the life of a serf geant and a soldier, and took three Russian prisoners. A ball struck his foot, but the wound dnly embittered the animal the more. He threw himself upon & Ru^ian officer, fiung him to the ground,; and dragged him prisoned by his coat Collar to thfej French, physician has bound! up the wound and the foiir- footed hero is |convalescing.
