JEIt3jl ^gi .. W0RI>i OF WISDOM AND Of REASON , - The jinti-sbivery men' of ' Hie ultra school have been at work a quarter of a century. Now, iq all that time, what good have they done? Where is ft to bo seen? They hare produced no good result for tho slave—they havo done nothing for the free black. On the contrary, wo have the evidence of aomo of too mort respected Southern statesmen that the slave has been injured, and wo have the facts before us in Constitutions of several of the States, to show that the free colored persons are worse off than they were. That is the case as to the colored races. .TVhat hive been the effects of slavery agitation in the country? It has arrayed ono)body of States against the others. It has created hostilities, heart-burnings, and nil manner of bad foeling amongst men who should live together as brothers. It has disturbed the general business of the country. And finally it has brought almost to the verge of destruction the best and wis...

ROYALTY EXPENSIVE There is something magnificent, to Borne people, in being liberal, and even profuse with money not their own. John Bull particularly rejoices in such a thing bs this. He seems to think that, having got a Hoyal Family, there is nothing more fitting than to take every opportunity of heaping gifts upon them. If John Bull himself does not do this, his Parliament does, which ought to be (but is not) all tho same. The annual allowance to Queen Victoria is close on $2,000,000, in hard cash. She has other advantages, such as being exempt from house-rent and taxes, having her different palaces kept in repair, and so on. She has the income of tho Duchy of Lancaster, which is about $ 160,000 more. She has appropriated to herself, since his birth, tho Prince of Wales's $125,000, from the rental of his Duchy of Cornwall estates. In a word, she is very well provided for, it inuBt be admitted. Her husband hasa Parliamentary life-dower of $150,000 per annum, and about as m...

We contlnuo, from the New York papers, of yesterday, tho most important of the evidence and incidents in this singular and astounding case. Shortly after three o'clock, yesterday afternoon, Miss Augusta Cunningham entered the court room, ond sat down in a corner, covering her face with her hands. She seemed overwhelmed with misery. To the few words of sympathy addressed to her she was unable to reply. Her sobs checked her utterance. It was pitiable indeed to witness the intensity of her sufforing.

Amrrlcan and English Agriculture. At the recent meeting of the Itoyal AgriculturalSoeiety, of England, Lord Portman United States, to the ' autoncer^ffftr'feficiiiwho w.ts well received, said his mission to England was principally agricultural, and ha had left Ida own country with that Yankee spirit of inquiry to spy out the land elsewhere. In two months he had observed carefully during that time the differences that were manifest in this country between its agriculture and that of America. Ho observed a more thorough, a more systematic course of agriculture, a bettor system, a more profitable, a more money-making system. That difference was the result of certain facts which ho would point out. The first was, that tend iu America was very cheap, it could be bought there for live shillings an acre. Land being so cheap was not so well cultivated, and was generally worked for present profit, and as soon as the present profit ceased it was left, and a new piece of land was procured....
