Just as often as yoa like,' was the re ply. " Where will you be driv sir V . 'Wrell, J rather guess a bath-house is the best place,' replied the other, half musing. '.'.. Before he had time hardly to think of it the carriage was rattling up Broadway and fit ally etopped opposite Baths. ' Here the youngster wa3,placed in charge of one of the assistants, for a wash, who soon returnedwrith him, saying to his patron, 'Why the boy is clean enough, sir; it is his clothes that's dirty.' 'So it is. Any bey's clothing store round here ?.' ' ' : ' ' ' ; Yes, sir,' saii.the bath-keeper, pock eting "a five dollar greenback, and for geting.to give change, 'just oterhere, in Broadway.

Driver, drive U :'a boy's clothing emporium'.' , . ; 'Any boy's cloihee to fit this Boy?' raid the operator, as he ftrode into a huge store.on the shelves of whicn were suits enough for any army of boye, with his charge timidly clinging to his hand. Yes, sir,' said a clerk, looking curi ously m the little- rrcbin, Jthis way sir.' And in s twinkling half a dozen different styles, at as many different prices, were thown. Suffice it to say, that the young ster was soon clad, to his infinite delight in a wajm, servicable suit including even an overcoat and cap, and was reahy a bright. , pretty-looking boy, when his prelector chanced to look down and dis covered his badly protected feet, .which had first attracted his attention -Got any boys' stockings ?' ' : '.At the other counter hosiery depart ment, sir, said the polite clerkand nice lov.g and warm stockings, such as Fifth Avenue mamas buy for their darlings for winter wear, were shown. Petrole um didn't ask ;J.-3 price, but fitted his charge to a pair, and in reply to the salesman who wished to know if he would iike as extra pair for a change, ?aid, yes, let's Lave a dcrzen.' They were expeditio usly done up, aryi taking tnm under his arm! he prepared to' leave the store, when the salesman brought forward the. cast-off wardrobe of the youngster, tied up in the cotton shawl that had enveloped his neck. ' 'No matter about those,' aaid Petroiia, ccmc along 'Oh, ti.o no !' urged the little fellow : 'mammy's shawl ! It is all she's got I want mammy's sl.awl ! It is all she's got I want mammy's shawl!' Th? shav.i was accordingly taken, and or. the way to a shoe etore. this "cold- blocdtd speculator" learned from his lit tle companion that "mammy" lived in a pjor m.-igl.borhced in,?, tenement house; that t.her" was a Utile- sister who had been sick a long time, so that mammy couldn't work ; that her large shawl was pawned, and the little one was all that was left; that the fifteen cents was the whole stock cf cash on hand, and he had brea despatched to buy a little meal and a loaf ci Lr.-ad, and oh, tioar ! it just came ever Lim that mammy would think he was lost ! Never you mind, we'll go and ee mammy soon. Drive to a dry goods shop driver !' . . It does not take long iu New York fcr a man to buy goods when he simply stales what he wants j and pays the , naon ey without cavil respecting the price. So, when "a' good, large, warm shawl" was ordered, it was to?sed into the car nage, and the change from a fifty dollar greenback returned, without the purchas er leaving his seat. Where next?' said . the now obsequi ous hack man. Let me see,' mused th3 - Petrolian. I-guess we'll spend that fifteen cent, for : meal ; drive to a tip-top grocery store.' The carriage stopped opposite an "es tablishment" m that line, looking with its plate-glass windows, massy counters and clean floors, almost too nice a place for t-uch as sugar, floor and molasses. 'Got any good tea V ( . 'Certainly, prime article, sir.' said the grocer," displaying a sample, 'a dollar and sixty a pourd.' ' Yes, well FH take a chin.' 'I'll take a chist. Got any flour?' Yes, tir, rer nice article,' said the grccer, 'fifteen doHai- a barrel, eight dollars a half-barrel.' I'll take a barrel.' All right, sir.' said'the grocer, brisk ly, seeing that his customer was not a man who did things by halves, 'any thing elsP, fir?' ... ' . - Yes ar-y s.fic'hr ?' 'Yes, ir, prime coffee .crushed twenty-five cents a pound.' " .... ."...'! All right; put in a barrel of that. Now, how much is your bill'? . -Let me sec tea sity-four, flour fif teen, sus:ar sixty-one, is one hundred and forty for the whole.' The purchaser took out three fifty dollar greenbacks, 'it's a pity, to- break them,' said he and ho looked about for something else, when he f el: his coat s'irt Ug:red aad.his little protege who had fotlowed him into the store said, Do take me home, for it is most dark and mammy's sick.' ' irarnmy; sick ' the suggestion deci ded the fate of the ten dollars. ; 'Got prime old part ?' . Yes, sir, excellent article, 1$20, worth ten dollars.' '. Well, put'in a bottle of that for the other urn.' '.' - .'Thank you, sir, wber shall we send the goods ?' said the grocer, reemrig the three fifties.' ' . . You needn't send ihVm, I'll take them Sir," saithe grocer, opening his eyes with amazement. I'll take them with me,' said the pur chaser. 'Do vou sec-that carriage at the door, well hoist the flour up in front of the driver's seat, strap the sujar on behind, and put the tea inside. I'll take the wint in iny pocket.' It is human nature to be furrrised at unusual proceedings, but no where is business conducted on the ask-no-ques- tion-stjle so much as in Now York. A purchaser in that city might buy ten bar rels of whiskey,, .and after paying for it, request the seller to pour it into the gut ter and it would be done, I almost without question; whereas, in Boston, a ! fierce discussion, and probably actual refusal' would be the result. , So, therefore, the. worthy grocer bade his men lift the merchandize to the position required by the purchaser, and turned to wait on another -customer. : ; ' - V" ' The hack driver, hbweverf "ifemurred at this proceeding on the part of the gro- cer s me; he was not 'going to have his carriage turned into a grocery cart ;' he wa?n't ' 'Look here, driver, pocket this and lend a hand there,' said Peirclia, The driver's fiingers closed over a ten dollar greenback, and in five minutes more the articles were hoisted into their places, and he. with his k-g.s over Jihe flour barrel, was driving his team at a rapid pace for the lower part of the city. , The unwonted s-iht of u handsome cargiage with a flour .in front and a su gar barrel behind, at the door of a tene ment house in a cheap neighborhood nat urally attracted some aittntion, and it was not difficult to obtain a couple cf stout fellows to carry up the barrels and tea chest to the widow's room for the re .ward of a dollar each. The. donor as cended, fcllowkig his little puide,v acd found the poor wor. an pale and anxb-us at she prolonged absence of her hoy and watching tha sick child.' What neod is there of telling the old story so familiar that with loss of hus band -and support, here in New York, far from home poverty, sickness and distress and thatih3 last penny was expended. Petroleum listended while the little fellow, whose acquaintance l a had made, capered about or struttdd i-o and fro in his new clothes.1 but he was on a pree. he couldn't wait. The widow's rate ul thanks , he laid down a green--back; she solicited his-name ; he han ded out a folded paper and h ft the hoose. The folded pr was tw.-ui.her gren Lack for a hundred doliaro. 'Drive to the Fifth Avenue Hotel, dri ver, or 1 chaii be h'.?- for dinner.' . Away spun thd carriage, and its occu cant. in a Quarter of an hour more dis. mounted at the hotel. There's your fares driver's, an other ten. Thank ye, sir ! Glad again, sir,' said coachy ; which wish, considering he bad been paid at the rate of .ten dollars an hour, was not at all remarkable. Petroleum met the friend he had par ted with a few hours previous, just go ing in to dinner. Ah?' said the latter, 'b.tck already V Yes, aldready for dinner. Had a glorious spree ! Spent four hundred and fifty in two hours !' Disgusting !' said a fashionably dress ed lady who overheard the last remark, to her companion, as they swept past, arrayed in all their glory. When, however, we learned the story y as it was learned by our informant from the little fellow, who sought cut, his benefactor some days afterwards, which ha. did by means of tha "hack-driver whem he hunted up near the. Park, and the poor little fellow wept bitterly in the hall of the great hotel that the oil prince was not there and was sent home iagain in a carriage, with the pet, tfvinea-pig he had brought as a present, we . were alo inclined to fay, What a glorieus ypree !

I will say that your letter came to my office in due time,- but ow'irg to my absence from heme, it cou'd not be an swered sooner "than the 'above' date From the contents of year letter, I sup pose that you will V-nie nctnore on af fairs of -r Ccur.'ry, and perhaps you bni rathrrT v.luld-say ncmorc ca it. r But I wili say duty' calls" upon me to re ply to your number two, and, .you will nodoubt tbink me severe, but when I write I wish. to be distinctly heard and understood, and I . am , willing for ary man to do the same towards .me, "so when you read this" it you, or any tf the connection; endorsing ,your political sentiments; can reply to it, let me hear it, in any. way you see fit, and ii wili ali be right, so far as, 1 am concerned' I think I have gced reasons for writing kharply to you. 1st. Because you have introduced the subject yourself, and 2d. I .thiol, your position needs a sharp reproof ; and I flatter myself that I shall give it one, be fore I close this letter. Now for it -You say if you are a Copperhead, so was Madison, Jefferson, Monroe, Jackacn, &.c. Ycu then speak. of being a consti tutional man &.c, r.ow in all candor let me lock at this ere moment, ycu are in every way, shape, and manner, eppesed to the present administration, and yet you' say you are, with, Jefferson, Madi son, Monroe', ccc' Do you know what Madison's poli cy was in the w ar of 12, and 13. Do you know what Jackson's policy was in the Blackhawk war. Do ycu .know what Polk's policy was in the Mexican war.' Can Mr . Cock go back to the his- tcries cf these policies, and tell me wherein the policy of the present ad ministration differs frcm them, I have the history of all those administrations and I know that E. II. Cook, conld not give the difference if he were to le hurg heels upwards for it, the enly way the policy could be rightfully distin guished lrom the former policies is; it is more full and complete than those were, and the reason of this, Mr. Lin coln has had a wicked rebellion to. con tend nghinst, and Jefferson, Madison, &.c, had no such troubles to encounter Those men were I think ail good, and truo, to the government, but Mr. Lin coln has. done more for our Country's salvation, than all of them together, as every sensible man knows, and as every honest man will admit- You next speak of being a constitu tional man, and you repeat this, 2 or 3 times, I suppose you think if you don't repeat it, it will hi hard to make the people believe it, and I must confess that I don't believe it yet. If you are a constitutional man at all. it must be to some clause of Jeff Davis' constitution it cannot . be the constitution of ; oui government. xou next r.ik is it constitutional to rcb a man of his private papers? send him away from his home ? imprison him To this I reply, it is owing to what kind of man he is, and what kind of pa pers he has. If he is a rebel like Mr. Vailandigham, captur h'm, send him cut cf the nation il possible, and bu:n his pa pers, this is constitutional, thU-ia accor ding to the Laws of our'gcvernment.and also according to the Law of God. No government should show any respect fcr Traitors ia any way whatever.but should serve them just as God did seme Reb els of old Num. 16. But your arguments cn the Constitu tion &.c , ccnvince'me very clearly that you don't know what the constitution is, your arguments evince to me that you have borrowed them form the Rebel School, and that you have read the con stitution through once, in your life. " " Now let me ask my good Rebel Brother-in-law a few questions. 1st. Is it con stitutional fcr men. who have taken a sol emn oath to defend the constituticn and j1 of. is " goTemmanti lo rebel! against it, because purged traitors ; and do all they can to destroy the veay country, they are solemnly sworn to de fend, like Jefferson Davis, Stephens, Floyed, Breckenridge, and all the other leaders of this wicked rebellion. Or 2d. Is it constitutional for a man who is liv iDg in the- north, and enjoying the free dom, and happiness, and blessings cf the best government the sun has ever shined upon ; to pick up his gun and go down south, and help those Godforsaken Vil Iians.ia their attempt to ruin this govern ment as I understand Mr. Cook kas done. Is this whit makes my gcod UreHher-in law.'E. H. Ccoksuch a strong :cnstitu tional man? . Is this the - way. Jefferson, Madison,', and Monroe dene ? . No bir. if these good men were. now alira they would blush to kno-.Y that a rcbeljCr reb el's deg, was left a live tp disgrace their future gece'ratio.Ti . 3Iy .fir.cere, edvico to you is, ..that ycu ge t down into, the dust and .cover yourself jn sackcloth, and ash es, and pray to almighty Gcd, to parden the awful crime ycu have ccmmitf.d against him, and also ask parden of the " government you.have so unjustly insul ted, that this foul stain may net reit up on your children, after ycu a're.de'ad.and gene., Vr 1 sincerity pray Cod that you may do" this. 'Again you. say if .yea aro to be a negro lover, inorder to be a re spective man you will never he. cne.that is, J'supposi ycu will rievpr ove a negro. Now let us. look one moment at this ana see who' are negro, lovers, according to Dr. Jay's report which is correct, 05 per cent of all slaves in America, are, mixed and 25 rcr cent have rncre while, than African blood " in them ; now. whether traitors love the negro cr net, this shows why they hang to the accursed institu tion cf human slavery with as mu"ch to nacity.? Iti3 to carry out their own hel lish designs. Thousands of those v hell hound traitors, have been guilty cf sel ling their own children into perpetual slavery, a crime unparallelled in the history- of humanity".' But you say, yea will never have 'any sympathy for' the' poor down trodden negro. 'Let rno earnestly tell you that if such a sentiment was ia my heart, I would pray almighty God to seal my lips that I might never give ut terance to tmch- a wicked tiought. I thank God to-day, that there is'a people in the government, ; who have a. nobler mind, and a purer a heart, than thin, a people who have soma sympathy for the poor slave.. i At the head of this, nobla people .-stand President Lincoln; twha has been an instrument in the fcand of God, in breaking off the fetters of the poor slave, and bringing them cut fr'ca under the whip, and lash, where they have been groaning, and rithing for 3-4 cf a century. This Blighting, and with ering curse cf the nation, is new blotted out of existance,' Slavery -is dead, dead, DEAD, yes dead forever.. .Glory be to God, even so let it be, ever., this most glorious victory.! The .shout of all the noble of the nation, assend to-day, to the'highest heaven, Amen, Halleiugtib. Can there be any thing short of a gloncus providence in all this. Just as certainly, as. God jaised Pharcahf up, to show hi3 power in the' earth. So sure did he raise up Abraham Lincoln, to free the p-)cr slaveV and thus rid the cation cf this dark gcd Blighting curse. If he never does any thing more, he will go 'to his grave blessed of all nations,' for what he has already done. New .con cerning the slaves of England, I will say if I were living near you. I would let you have tho history cf Ecglani to read so that the school boys, may not laugh at your knowledge of the Queen's Dominion.- . i I i . 1 lave promised to be at St. Louis next July at the American meeting, acd I had thought then cf coming cri op the River, to see seme cf, my good rebel re lations, but if I should not get in far up the river, perhaps the reasen, maybe found in 2cd Timothy.
