tte ! I have heard that hens too fat and well fed, do not lay so abundantly as lean ones; so I thought I would try the effect of giving my goat a smaller quantity of hay.--But it did not answer. She yielded still less milk, and I had the vexation of hearing her bleat half the day. It is now not worth while milking her twice a day; so I have waited till the evening, in order to get a little more. But she will hardly let me come near her. I have hurt her teat by pressing it too hard. February 8.--I will confess my weakness; I shed tears to-day when I tried in vain to milk Blanchette for the last time. When she saw that I gave up the task, she gazed at me distrustfully, as if putting herself on her guard against a fresh attempt. I pushed the basin on one side, and sat down by the poor creature. I threw my arms round her, and wept bitterly. She went on eating all the same, bleating occasionally, and looking at me affectionately.--They say that goats do not distinguish perso

Departure of Col. Hayne for South Carolina. Washington,Feb. 8.--Col. Hayne, South Carolina Commissioner, and Lieut. Hall, bearer of dispatches to Maj. Anderson, left this morning, carrying with them the President's ultimatum, which it is believed must prove unsatisfactory to South Carolina. The President will probably transmit his correspondence to Congress to-day. He has somewhat retreated from the position assumed of "protecting the public property," and now rejects the demand of South Carolina on the ground that the Federal Government has exclusive jurisdiction in Fort Sumter, which is incompatible with the right of eminent domain in South Carolina. As to selling Fort Sumter to the State of South Carolina, as suggested by Col. Hayne, the President says he would no more sell Fort Sumter to that State than he could sell the Capitol of the United States to the State of Maryland. He concludes his reply with the following emphatic declaration: "If, with all the m
From Washington. Washington,Feb.8.--Capt. Tilton, of Md., of the Navy, committed suicide by blowing his brains out with a pistol. He had been sometime depressed in mind, in consequence of the national difficulties. No apprehension is felt of an immediate attack on Fort Sumter, as the question will probably be placed in the hands of a Southern Confederacy. In the meantime, South Carolina authorizes her military to place stricter guard than ever on the coast, to prevent the possibility of Anderson being reinforced, and that domestic market supplies and postal facilities will be cut off.
