ON SWEARING. COWPER wrote some linea about swearing, which it would be worth while for every one to learn : "It chills my blood to hear the blest Supreme Rudely appealed to on each trifling '.berne ; Maintain your rauk vulgarity despise To swear is neither br. vc, polite, or irise. You would not swear upon a bed of death : Reflect ! Tour Maker may now stop your bres.th." Some who would not swear by the name of God. think nothing of swearing "Cy George," or "By jingo," or by something else ; others often cry out, -Good gracious !" or "Mercy on me !" and tho like. Tfcese are the beginnings of swear? ing. They are to profano swearing, a hat acorns are o the oak._ OL? COPARTNERSHIPS* Whisky-and Ignoranee. Whisky and Poverty. Whisky and Sensuality.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. WAS?INCTON, D. C., March 21,1871. -Ben. Butler is still on the rampage with bis Ku Klux bill, and is further from having it pawed than ever. Ile offered it yesterday for reference, but objection iras made to having it printed, which so infuriated tht cyclopean mem? ber from Essex that he objected to every bill which the Democrats desired to have printed. Butler is nut a beauty in bis sweetest mood, bat wheo he loses his temper his features are diabol? ically demotiisb. Yesterday the House amended the Senate res? olution fur a joint committee io investigate the condition ot tbe South, by increasing t?ic com? mittee from the Mouse to 14, and also directing that tlie committee report ai the cex' session. This was another bitter pill fur Butler, os it greatly reduce* his chance of having his Ku Klux bill even considered. There is no reasonable doubt but that the Semite will concur. Tho House yesterday, for the third time, show? ed its desire io delay until next se...
