OueKsmxu Pianos. —Tho name of Cfeicker* ing has Iveu associated with tho manufacture of pianos for nearly fifty years. Jones Chick oring was one of tUo pioneers in the busiue-s, and his early success offered the first t fimctual check to the large importation of piano-fortes from Europe. At that period, and for mauy years after tho demand for pianos was very .limited, so that as oue after another manufac *fc;rer sprung up. following at a distance the )Mtd ot Chickering, it became possible to sup ply the home demand by homo manufacture, and the public at length, believing in the ster ling excellence of the American product,ceased to order from abroad, aud toe business of im porting pianos died out, it being impossible to pursue it with profit. For thirty years the house of Chickering A Sons was the foremost bouse m America, it business doubling that of any other maker, and throughout tlio whole length and breadth of tbe country tho name of “Chickering, Hoeton, was a talismau and a guaranty, which has penetrated into a thousand of American homes, and was then as much a household word in proportion ns it is this day, where its thirty thousand pianos are forever vocalizing the simple words ‘‘Chickering, Boston. To Chickering A Sms the modern piano D Indebted for its most important improvement. The entire iron frame v.ag first used by Chick criog A Fens, and was exhibited by thorn at the first great International Exhibition in Lou don, where it created a profound excitement, receiving the first medal ever awarded to au American piano-forte manufacturer, and the Approval ol all the eminent makers in Euro [re. who aitevwards adopted the principle ; thus giving rise to tho expression "mauniactured t»tter the American plan." Chickering « Sons uiet introduced the “cir cu'ar,” from which springs all tho present ox ceffenco of tho American piano. The adop tion of this f case, which the chkkerings gener ously left unpatented for the benefit of the ’whole trade, has given to the piano depth, power, and bauty of quality of ton •; in short, it! as op-ned tho way lor thetplendid qualities which distinguish tho piano of tOMiay'trom the pi .no cf fifteen years r>go. The immense buxines done by Chiekeriog £ Sons necessitated manufacturing facilities iu proportion, and led to the erection of thoir mo ld ext* nsivu and splendid manufactory in i ston, which is the largest in the world, and lice been imitated on a smaller scale by other manufacturers in this country ; although much of their wonderful labor-saving machines, the invention of the Chlckerlngs themselves, cannot be imitated, and arc therefore not to be found elsewhere. The house of Ohltkering k Sons fully main tain* its supremacy. Their manufactory ia still much the largest in the world, the num ber of pianos they turn out wack y in rrronds, tqiiares and uprights exceeds that of any rioglc manufacturer in America. Their pianos, when brought into close competition with those of any other maker, have always been prouounced superior, and their grind piano, which is .the instrument which stamps the supreme reputation of a manufacturer, is in ways chosen by tho world’s acknowledged groat pianists aa the only instrument in which thc7 can reveal in tho highest degree tht-ir skill, imagination and sentiment, and is consequently the loading concert piano In America Eurtbor, the two great points upon which bingo all tho present excellence of American pianos, viz-, the full iron frame and ti e “Circular Scale,” are duo to tho per sonal geni rs and skill of Cfcickoring x Sons keening Post.

Parties therefore are required to make affidavit that they have not the means of support or of getting bread enough to live upou without aid, and that they are unable by their own labor to obtain bread. Wo would advise those who cau not consistently take the oath to remain at home aud not to bothor and perplex the agent. Paper Collars. W’o saw it Mated iu a Boston paper, a few days ago, that o yotiug man in that city wad Buffering “muchly” from pustules on his neck The young man consulted a physician, who at once attributed them to paper cellars, which are now habitually worn. Upon inquiring among his fellow clerks, the afflicted man die covered that five or six oi them were troubled with the same eruption. The last number of tho “Round Table” makes this incident tho occasion of a warm protest against paper col lais, saying that arsenic is need in tho process of enameling them, aud that it is a deadly poison, however it may fiud its way iuto the system, whether hy absorption from coutnct with the skin or otherwise.

While the world yet riugs with tho narrative of a brave people's struggle tor independence, and while the story of the hardships so nobly endured for Liberty-a sake is yet a theme but hall exhausted, the counties graves of the myriads of heroes who spilled taeir noble blood in deforce of that glorious cause lie neglected, not alone unmarked by tablet or Bculpteied urn, but literally vanishing before the releutles? finger of Time. Within the past four weeks, there have been lOrmed, oy the Ladies ol Richmond, two associations, viz . The “Hollywood’’and the “Oakwood, having for their object the care and renovation of the soldiers’ graves in those Cemeteries. Goiemporaueously with the above, we, the Hebrew Ladies, formed a similar Association, with the view of caring for the graves of Jew ish soldiers; which, of course, would not be embraced in the work of either cf tha first named Societies. Iu our own Cemetery repose, alas! the sa cre ! remains of many a loved brother, son, and husband, to whose relatives, iu tha far Sunny South, it would boa solace to know that the [.ions duly of preserving from decay tha last resting place of their lost ono3j although de nied to them to perform, is yet sacredly ful filled by tho members of tho “Hebrew Ladies’ Memorial Association.” it is our intention to mound and turf each grave, and to plt.ee at the head of each a sio pie stoiio, inscribed with name, State, and time aud pi coos death; subsequently, to *earr a monument commemorative of their brave deeds. Iu order, however, to succtvwfully accom plish our object, we need some pecuniary as distance. Our scant and somewhat needy com munity, already so heavily taxed, has done well; but we find “this work is too great for us therefore, with a full confidence in the sympathy and co operation of our people olee& whore, wo make this appeal for aid, well know ing that as Israelites and true patriots, they will act refuse to assist in rearing a monument which shall save not ouiy to commemoruto tiro bravery of our dead, but the gratitude and admiration of tho living, for those who so nobly perished in what we deemed a just and righteous cause : and while as Israelites we inouru tho untimely loss of our loved ones, it will Ito’a graceful reflection that they suffered not their country to call in vain. \ in time to come, when our grief shall have become, in a m insure, silenced, and when tho malicious tongue of slander, ever so ready to assail Israel, shall.bo raised against us, then, with a fooling of mournful pride, will bo point to this monument and say, “There is our re pdy.” Mns.

Tha New Orleans Picayune feilis the follow ing Incident: During tho thickest of the fight at Resaca, he called aud said, “you look hungry, and I must divid? my lunch with you.” Someone had presented him with a box of guava jolly, and a bit of wheat bread, (rarities in those Confed erate times) and the prospect was tempting, “But,” said we, “wouldn’t itgoa little better if wo were in o safer place ?” The old gentle man laughed kindly nnd replied, “certainly it would.” And wo proceeded to find one. We had scarcely seated ourselves, however, - behind an oak tree at the bottom of the hill, when a schrapnel came tearing through the air, struck tho oak broadside about thirty feet above us, and precipitated both of us, lcmchjand ail, amid a mass oflimbs and fragments into a gully be low. “Hey»day !” cried tho General, picking himself out of tho rubbish. “You’re a pretty fellow for selecting covers! Come, we may a3 well take ourselves back to tbe front.” The same paper also gives an account of hia death. It says; The five weeks immediately preceding his fall, Gen. Polk passed in very active service. Ho had come from Mississippi with his army to join Gen. Johnstou, with whom he wae upon the most affectionate relations. We saw him for the last time on tha day before he was shot. He .was occupying a log cabin to the right of Lost Mountain, and appeared to be depressed about the situation. The next morning he sot out with a party of officers, including General Johnston, General Hardee and General Red Jackson, upon a tour of inspection. On Pine Knob they passed a long while id general con versation. Tho group was noticed from au op posite battery, and a ball was fired just over it. Tho gentlemen at once dispersed, General Polk stiff keeping, with his usual carelessness, the comb of .tho hill. A second shot was fired, and it struck him upon the right side, crushing his arm, and passing through aud through the body. Col. Gale, his son-in-law, ran to him as he fell, but life was quite extinct, without a sign of pain, and only a slight tremor of the nether lip. A REMARKABLE CASE. A ilfild Born with fine Arm Under Peculiar CirtnmAanec'. One of the most remarkable cases that has over conic under the observation of our medical fraternity, lias just transpired at tho residence of a young man name J Abriei, who resides on First s'rec’t, Arbor Hill. Mr. A. is a returned soldier. He lias been home something less than a year. When he came home he was suffering from a Minnie ball wound through the fleshy part of the bight arm. It became so bad that the attending physician talked seriously ot am putation. This worked seriously on the mind of his young wife (he had but a short time pre viously got married.) She cared for and dressed the arm regularly, and paid every attention to it, not wishing to see her husband with only one arm. This was some eight or nine months ago. Under the kind care of the wife, whose whole attention was absorbed in the thought of a one armed husband, the wound got well, and the arm was saved. Now for the sequel. All this transpired eigkt or nine months ago. The other day the wife of Mr. Abriei gave birth to a child who had one developed arm, hut the other was a stump, similar to one which the poor wife’s mind was impressed with at the time the surgeons were taking oif her husband’s. Am putation could in t have produced a more beau tiful stump, anil what is more, the sc.tr of the bullet-hole, so visible oil the father’s arm, was so visible on the child's arm at the base of tbe stump as it really indicted by a bail. This is the most remarkable case of “child-mark” ever known. It has attracted the attention of ail our leading physicians and surgeons. The child is a healthy and beautiful one, perfect in every respect, save the absence of the arm referred to. —Albany (IV. V.) Knickerbocker. M.

'tire Gypsies ia Their Country. i here are few who have not, at one time or another, felt a strong interest in those eccentric nomads who, unJer the name of Gypsies, have for centuries been encamped or journeyed among the civilized people of Europe and in this country. Who and what are they, what is their mode of life, and what are their peculiar notions, are subjects of which little is under stood. Mr. Burrow’s works have contributed something to our knowledge, and the book now before us, a “History of the Gypsies, by Walter SSiinson, ’ will add much more to our stock of in formation. The American edition—published by M. Doolady, 448 Broome .street— is edited by James Bimson, who estimates the number of Gypsies in the British isles alone at not less than 250,. 000, and says that in Europe and America there are 1,000,000 of these strange creatures. 7he editor corrects some popular notions in regard to the present habits of the Gypsies. I here are not now, in the main, the wanderers they used to be. Through intermarriage with other peoples, and from other causes, they have adopted more stationary modes of life, and have assimilated to the manners of the countries in which they live. Still this mixing of races does not diminish the old antipathy. The nearer the gypsy approaches the pure white race the more intensely does he feet the wall of separation, and the more pride does he feel in his ancient descent ond traditions. As the editor of this volume says : “They carry the language, the’ associations and the sympathies of their race, ami their peculiar feelings toward the commu nity with them ; and, as residents of towns, have greater facilities, from others of their race residing near them, for perpetuating their lan guage, than when strolling over the country.” The origin of the Gypsies is traced back to the time when the Jews were in captivity in Egypt. The theory is that they were a part of the “mixed multitude” mentioned in Exodus ; that while the Jews were merely in a state of serfdom, this “mixed multitude” were really slaves; that they separated from the Jews in their llight and went through the Persian desert into Northern Hindostan, where they formed the Gypsy caste, and, alter many centuries, spread themselves over the earth, speaking the language of Hindostan. On their exit from Egypt they had, as slaves, no notions of the rights of property, and during their travels were almost forced to rob and steal the means of sub. sistcnce. In Hindostan, they found their knowledge of horses and of working in metals, as well as of the less useful arid more occult sciences, ex ceedingly useful to them. The peculiarities of their language are somewhat accounted for on the ground that they were more or less isolated in Hindostan, and retained many of their old Egyptian words and phrases, while they adopt ed so much of the Hindostanee that a friend of the author assures him that five out of ten of thoir words belong to that language. Borrow even detects many words which show an un mistakable Greek origin. • The author says that several thousand Eng. fish Gypsies had arrived in this country within the last ten years preceding the writing of his book. They became horse dealers, peddlers, fortune tellers, ete., and are generally well to do. He says : AMERICAN GYPSIES. Perhaps the foundation of the American broom manufacture was laid by the British Gypsies, by whom it may be partly carried oh at the present day ; a business tlzey pretty much monopolise, in a rough way, in Great Britain. Wc will doubtless find among the fraternity some of those whittling, meddling Sam Slick peddlers so often described. I have seen some of those itinerant venders of knife-sharpeners, and such “Yankee notions,” with dark, glisten ing eyes, that would “pass for the article.” Some ot'them.would live by less legitimate business. I entertain no doubt, from the general fitness of things and the appearance of some of the men, that we will fine some of the descendants ot tho old British mixed Gypsies members of the various establishments of Messrs, Peter Funk & Company, of the eity of New York, as well as elsewhere. And I entertain as .little doubt that many of those American women who tell fortunes, and engage in those many curious bits of business that so often come up at trials, tire descendants of the British plantation stock of Gypsies. But there are doubtless many of these Gypsies in respectable spheres of life. It would be extremely unreasonable to say that the descendants ot the colonial Gypsies do not still exist as Gypsies, like their brethern in Great Britain, and other parts of the Old World. The English Gypsies in America en tertain no doubt of it; and more especially as they have encountered such Gypsies, of at least two descents. I have myself met with such a Gypsy, following a decidedly respectable calling, whom I found as much one of the tribe, barring the original habits, as perhaps any one in Eu- rope. There are many Hungarian and German Gypsies in America; some of them long settled -in Pennsylvania and Maryland, where they own farms. Some of them leave their farms in charge of hired hands during the summer, and proceed south with their tents. In the State of Pennsylvania there is a settlement of them on the J river, a little way above II , where they have saw-mills. About the Alleghany Mountains there are many of the tribe, following somewhat the original ways of the race. In the United States generally there are many Gypsy peddlers, British as well as continental. There are a good many Gypsies in New York— English, Irish, and continental—some of whom keep tin, crockery and basket stores ; but these are all mixed Gypsies, and many of them of fair complexion. The tin ware which they make is generally of a plain, coarse kind ; so much so that a Gypsy tin store is easily known. They frequently exhibit their tin. ware and baskets on the streets and carry them about the city. Almost all, if not all, of those itinerent cutlers and tinkers to be met with in New York, and other American cities, are Gypsies, princi pally German. Hungarian-and French. There are a good many Gypsy musicians in America. “What!” said I to an English Gypsy, “those organ-grinders !” ‘Nothing so low as that. Gypsies don’t grind their music, sir ; they make it.” But I found in his house, when occupied by other Gypsies, a hurdy-gurdy and tambou rine • so that Gypsies sometimes grind music, as well as make it. I know of a Hungarian Gyp sy who is leader of a negro musical band in the city of New York ; his brother drives one of the avenue cars. There are a number of Gypsy musicians in Baltimore, who play at parties, and on other occasions. Some of the fortune teUin"- Gypsy women about New \ ork will make as much as forty dollars a week in that line of business. They generally live a little uay out of the city, into which they ride in the morning, to their places of business. The financial troubles of Larniatine were lately brought to the notice of the Council of Ministers in Paris, and it is reported that M.

Cotton can no more stand taxation than corn or wheat, or any other pro duct of the soil. Labor, if Jett alone, will equal ize iueif, and engage in whatever is found to re turn tne best compensation. Cotton has been temporarily high, because its cultivation has been partially suspended bv the war, and by taxation impend by Southern Leg i-latures during tiie war. In this condition of thugs it IS obviously a matter of national im portance to send labor back to the cotton fields as ropully as possible, to reduce the price of cot ton by increased production, thereby furnishing au abundant and cheap supply at home, ami' senJmg it abroad at prices that will check the growing competition in the cultivation of this great staple in other countries. To tax cotton now because it bears a high price will be as un wise as it would be to tax corn when the price is rati up by a failure of crops, or to tax pork because the hog cholera may have reduced the number of hogs. 1 have said cotton cannot stand taxation— that ts, taxation will tujn labor from its produc non into other pursuits. The facts and reasons foch have led my mind to this conclusion are obvious. ihe average net-profit derived from, capital invested in the cultivation of cotton for a series ot years before the war was less than four per cent. Ihe apparent increase of the “so-called” Southern wealth was not trout rai ing cotton but from raising negroes. The negro girl, mar riec at iifteen years of age, would, by the time she was thirty years old, have children worth hvt or six thousand dollars, while tbe labor of herself and husband during this period would not do more than support themselves and family While the aggregate net profit from the labor of slaves of all classes engaged in the cultivation of cotton was under four per cent., perhaps not over three per cent., their increase was fully equal to ten per cent. It Yvas this increase, therefore, which made up much the largest portion of the apparent but delusive income of the South. A majority of planters did no more bv then crops than pay the annual expenses of their amilies and of their plantations. Some ever failed to do this much, and were forced to sell one ar more negroes every year to settle balances against them. And yet, by the rapid increase and growth of negroes, the convertible value of theirfestates, in most cases, was constantly ad vancing, These general estimates of the profits of cot ton-raising as compared with negro-raising must be varied according to localities and the character of the climate and soil. In the best cotton districts the profit on cotton-raising was of course much greater than the average here given, but then the climate was less healthy and less care was taken of negroes, especially the young ones, and but little profit made by the in crease and growth of slaves. So that tho ag gregate average income from the two sources cotton-raising aud negro-raising—was about as above stated. • It will be seen that these two sources of in come were very different and distinct, though strangely confounded together in the public mind. When a planter’s estate was supposed to have reached one hundred thousand dollars, he was said to have made it by raising cotton, and hence it was inferred that the business was very profitable; yet the matter being rightly understood, he made it by raising negroes. But we have now entered on anew condition of things, and the calculations of the cotton planter in regard to the future must be entirely changed. Slavery is abolished, and the increase and growth of negroes can never again be looked to as a part of his income. “King Cotton” must now stand alone. He has no slaves to come and go at his bidding, and must not rely on their increase as part of hi« revenue. This brings me to the direct question. What will be the profits of cotton-raising in this new condition of things l The following proposi tions to my mind are perfectly clear: First. During the existence of slavery the largest portion of the income of planters was from the increase and growth of slaves. Second. The actual profits made on raising cotton, when separated from the increase and growth of negroes, was not greater than the profits made on wheat, corn, mules, cattle, die., in the free States. Third. Slaveiy being abolished, the planter must rely for nis future income solely on the products of the soil. The soil in the South is being cultivated by free labor, and the products of the soil produced by free labor can no more bear taxation in the South than in the North. I am, as you are aware, the President ot the Mobile and Ohio railroad, which runs through Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky. It passes through more cotton-fields than any other road, and my duties in passing up and down it have brought me in contact and made me familiar with the workings of the popular mind. Before the present growing crop was planted, two questions were prominent before the peo ple ; First. Can the freedmen be induced to cultivate a crop ? Second. In view of the broken and postrate condition of the country, is it possible to raise the means necessary to bring from Kentucky,{lllinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio the mules, (arming utensils, corn, hay, meat, and other supplies necessary in raising a crop 1 Over these questions, on which the fate of the people, white and black, seemed to de pend, there hung clouds of doubt and fear almost driving the country to despair. Instead of receiving soothing and encouraging messages from abroad, we heard but little except the voice of wrath and vengeance. In this condition it was hard to bring the people up to the degree of confidence necessary to induce them’ to un dertake the planting of a crop. At last, pressed by the argument, they must do something, and gathering courage at the very point of despair, the planters engaged in trying once more to cultivate cotton. They suc ceeded in getting about one-haif the freedmen to go to work, promising in-some cases fixed wages, but in most instances agrSeing to give part of the crop. They mortgaged lands, and pledged all that remained to them on earth to raise means to pay for their supplies. White familfei that never labored before have gone into the fields to supply the places of that portion of the freedmen who refuse to work. No people ever struggled harder than that people are now slugging to raise themselves above want, and to restore to themselvos peace and comfort. W hat they are doing* I believe to be a fair type of the South generally. And now, is it not amazing that the product of the labor of a peo ple struggling against such fearful disadvant ages should be selected as the subject of peculiar and special taxation 1 From the commencement of the frovernment down to the abolition of slavery, while the white man owned the slave, his labor and his increase, no such tax was thought of. But now, when the white man and the freedmen for the first time enter the cotton field, jointly and mutually interested in the growing crop, this, tax is proposed. An engagement calls me away, and I must close. I may write you again. ■ In conclusion, I pray G>d that an .American Congress may never esablish the principle of imposing taxes on any tgricultural product received from the bosom cf our mother earth as the reward ot honest hbor. • Tnly yours, Milton Brown.

Evans. She Sew liorti bold Bourn. The spinted New Yotk correspondent of the Charleston News, in a late issue qf that ex cellent journal thus discauts on the Now York Gold Board : New York, June 19. —havingbean informed yesterday by the Secretary ot me Gold Board, that the gold mania had burst forth anew in all its pristime intensity, and knowiog from a former experience that the Gold Boom, at such time, presents a pretty fair future ot Pandemonium on a holiday occasion, if the imps of Satan and the children ot the Devil can bo supposed to have “a day we celebrate.” I took up my line of march down Broad street towards the scene of action. It was verily a scene ot ac tion—of action exaggerated to distraction hundreds of gentlemen bawling to the extent of their voice, and gesticulating with nil the trantic ardor ot confirmed lunatics—some of fering to buy gold, some to sell gold, some at one price, some at a higher figure, some at a lower figure, whilst high above the horrible diu and babel-like contusion, worse confound ed, arose the voice of an enthusiastic gentle man expressing his willingness to “borrow ten gold.” Mcultue not precisely understanding the financial technicalities of ths Gold Room, was on the point of signifying his readiness to accept a loan of a smaller amount, say even ol the trifling sum ot “live gold” (the word thousand always understood,) but checked himself in time to avoid an exposure of his innocence. As the Secretary of the Gold Board is a native of your city, and a particular friend of your innocent correspondent, I received much valuable information from him. He In formed me, in the first place, that at hardly auy time during the war had the fluctuation in the gold market been greater or the excitement more Intense. The interior of the Gold Room is a largo rotunda in which is crowded a dense mass ot speculators, each aud ail armed with a pencil and book, and eagerly bawliug out their bids and offers to the very utmost extent of their power of lung. In one corner of the room is placed a circular plate, like a dial, on which an attendant, as he receives from the Secretary the ever changing quotations, varying each >econd, founded on actual transactions, marks them on the dial, that all may perceive and know the amount at which the latest sale has been made. The Secretary pointed out to me a gentleman who had, in the course of the last hour, made ten thousand dollars clear; another who had, in the last ten days, lo6t over two hundred thousand; and many gentlemen were present who were destined to be ruined or en riched by the rise or fall of gold at this exist ing crisis. Gold opened at 158 J, fluctuated, and at one time sank to 156}, closing at half past five o'clock at 157£. Any speculator, therefore, who may have sold $200,000 in the morning and bought in the afternoon—and it is not unusual for such an amount to change hands—must have made a clear profit in a few hours of $24,500. 'E2ie KvcrFas-Uug?. In the interior of a railway carriage are seat ed a gentleman and a lady. The gentleman “s bronzed, apparently by long residence in a hot climate.

(Sent—“ Would you object to having the win dow up!

Your voice re called recollections of fifty years ago. It re minded me of one who in other times, but—no matter. Your features, too, are strangely like hers—only, if you will allow me to say so, the complexion is even more brilliant,” Lady—“Oh, might I ask her name !” Gent—“ Her name was Rose.” Lady—“lt is my own.” Gent—“ls it possible that I am speaking tp her daughter l” Lady—“ You are speaking to herself.” Gent—“Heavens'! Why,*no No, surely.” Lady—“ Yes, indeed.” Gent—“But that fresh—excuse my rudeness —that youthlul color 1” Lady—“ That raven hair!” Gent—“l’ll be candid with you. It is wig the gentleman’s real head of hair, or invisible peruke—warranted to defy detection.” Lady—“ Eustace, will return your confidence. I owe this bloom to the art of Madame Esther. Gent—“ Enameled love. My Rose, my own lost Rose found ! My. Rose unfaded 1” Lady—“ Your Rose will fade no more. She has been rendered beautiful .” Gent—“Oh, how beautiful ! Let me fold thee in my arms.” (They embrace as well as they can. The dye. of his whiskers blackens her face, and the paint of her.cheeks comes off on the end of his nose.)

The money market remains extremely easy, with the supply largely in excess of the do mand; National bank currency is very plenty and can be borrowed for five or ten days by returning legal tenders. Call loans range from 4 to 5 per cent. The Gold market became stronger as the day drew to a close, and the last sales were at 151§a154f. This upward turn is due in part to tue decreasing in the Banks here, and the prospect of the passage of the tariff bill. Thu Government securities were firm this after noon, but rather quiet.
