"Say, Haze !" said Bill Webber, as he broke in upon nic last 

" What now ? " asked I. 

" Why, 1 don't think you done prezactly the elcan thinp; wlicn 
you went find printed w hat I told you about me takin' dinner at 
the Planter's llmipio tavern, when I was at tfL Louis. What 1 
told you 1 intended to go no furder. You ort to a knowd thai. 
Jest SCO what's come of it You went and sent it to Young, and* 
hyd it printed in hin Spihit ok the South, and now, you see, it's 
in everybody's gab; yes, and not nnl" " its caused mo to 
b^ ^ nf jn, k i fi ^eto, mornin' as 1 

fent down on ont ?a goin 

upon t'other, ana mvhI .-u r.L'.ii .-i|t ue Ulack's 

darter, to say nothing of the old oquiK uimself, and several others, 
heard him, scz he to me : — 

" Capt'n, fetch me some omlet and rum, and don't be stingy of 
the rum." 

Geluciplierl how mad that made me. I jest biled all over, and 
if it hadn't a bin that I had my bestf clothes on, I'd a went over 
and a lickt him into kingdom come. 

Xow, Haze, you sec this is all your fault — you had no business 
to go and get that printed. I wouldn't a sarved you, nor no 
other wan sitch a mean trick. 15ut good sop ! I didn't tell you 
all that happened while I was in StiJ^uis, nor I won't niither." 

Just then I saw what my friend was driving at. lie had some- 
liiing more to tell me, and was not half so mad as he let on. In 
fact he was like some singers 1 know of — wanted to be " press- 
ed a little.'' Of course 1 " pressed " him, and very soon these dis- 
closures followed a dozen or two "now don't you let it go any 
furthers :" — 

" Arter I'd got out of .the eaten' room of the Planter's House 
tavern, the tavern keeper he presented a big book for me to write 
niy name in, and 1 let in and done it in the best style possible. 
M'hile I was a standin' a lookin' at the graceful twist I'd gin the 
'\y. and the tavern keeper, he was a takin' a siiuint at it too, as if 
he thought I'd used up a little too much paper, a woman all flirt- 
ed up iu silk li.ttns, come a glidin' by us. Now you know. Haze, 
I was allers a great feller to look at wimmin, so I turned around 
to hav« a chunk of a gaze at this one. A single glance struck me 
all into a pile, for I recognized in her Sal Slater from our parts 
out htre, who married a pill pedlar some two years ago, you 

" Wl:y, Sal, how do you como on ? ' sez I, a pokin' out inv hand 
for a siiake. 

Sho drew back, mortally astonished at first, but artcr .she'd 
took a'nother look, sez she: — 

"Bill Webber from Illinois, as I live!" 

" Pricisely, ' sez I a reachin' out my hand a little furder, and a 
tak'n' a peep at the tavern keeper, who stood with his eyes bug- 
gei.' out about a foot or a foot and a half 
Ob. yes, ' si'z she, " Mr. Webber!" 

' Precisely," sez I agin, for she didn't seem exactly certjvin it 
w;b me. Slio was soon convinced, however, and then come a per- 
fect shower of questions alnrnt our folks; about who was mar- 
rit and who warn't, and all sutch like. Finally I stopt her by 
gLKju fl hrre she was a drivin' to. 

" Oil, " sc/. slic, as perlitc as a basket of chips — she's larn't to 

put on the quality since she left Illinois — " 1 was only gum out 
in the city to do a little shoppin." 

" Exactly," sez 1, " and seein' as I hain't nothin particular to do, 
I don't mind if I take a little tromp out with you." 

First she gin a glance at my homespun clothes, then at the old 
tavern keeper, and finally in every which way to satisfy herself 
that the pill pedlar was not in sight, and then she nodded her 
head and we started. We hadn't got but a little distance afore sez 
she : — 

" Hadn't you better tiike a ' bus,' Mr. Webber?" 

Xow, I allers thought Sal Slater to be a jam up gal, therefore 
you'd better believe this little piece of boldness astonished me 
vastly. -\t first I didn't know what to say — finally I concluded 
to let on like I didn't hear her. It done no good, for purty soon 
sez she agin, fl.\in' her nice little mouth up with one of the sweet- 
est smiles you ever seed, sez she: — 

" Hadn't you better take a 'bus,' Mr. Webber ?" 

That was too much for my ^ffectionatg,Ji^^^f mind to stand, 
80 I gin in, and sez I : — 

" To tell you the rale truth, Sal, i haifn 1 7!^ least objections in 
the worlil ; but hadn't we better wait till ye get to some place 
what ain't so public'? Ever^'body would sec us here, and some of 
them mout go and tell your man, and then tfte devil would be to 
pay, you know." 

At first she turned as white as a rag, then she blushed up 
dreadfully — then she burst right out in one of her old fashioned 
lauglis, and sez she: — 

" Well 1 do know you are the beatenest fool I ever did see !" 
Then she made a motion to a feller who was a drivin' one of these 
little houses on wheels — you've seen 'em — and the feller he stopt. 
Then sez she to me: — 

" Come on ; if you won't call a 'bus,' I will" 

Oh I think sez I to myself, this is the way the city folks, as 
they call themselves, do when they want to go into the kissin' bus- 
iness — they go jnto these house-wagons to git out of sight. Did 
you ever I I rally expect that's jist what they're made for. 

AVe got in ; but to my no little embarrassment I found some 
four or five fellers in there already. Think sez I, we hain't better- 
ed ourselves very much arter all. Sal didn't seem to mind them 
a whit, but jist took her seat right by the side of me the same as 
if there warn't nobody within a mile of us. As she'd sed she'd 
order a 'bus' if I didn't, I concluded I'd jist let her have her 
own way about it — and if she was a mind to postpone it till a 
more favorable opportunity presented itself, I had no objections. 
Purty soon she lookt at me, turned red in the face, squeezed her 
perty lips together in the nicest shape imaginable, and swelled 
her cheeks out. The way my heart began to climb up and choke, 
me was a caution, for it struck me the bussing was about to begin. 
Yes, sir, she swelled out her cheeks jest like she was try in her 
best to hold in somethin', and so she was, for all to once it got the 
better of her, and outcome one oi the merriest little laughs ever 
hearn in St. Louis. Then sez she, a pointin' to the roof of the 
wagon : — 

That's what tee call a 'bus,' Mr. Webber." 

How do you reckon I felt jist then? Why, I could a crawled 
inter a pipe stem. 1 jest sot there 'thout sayin' a word, or scarce- 
ly knowin' anythin', and on went the wagon — the 'bus,' as she 
called it. 

At last Sal, she said she guessed we'ed got about to the right 
place to get out. Now you know. Haze, I was allers considered 
something of a gallent among wimmin about home, and of course 
I was about the same out there. Besides I wanted to do some- 

j thing to redeem my .self from the blunder that I had just made. 

. Yes sir-e-e, I did that, so up I jumpt and made for the door of tlie 

bus' in order that 1 mout open it and help Sal out I took holt 
of the door, but it was fastened. 1 pushed a right smart, but it 
wouldn't open. My dander riz to tliiuk the feller had gone and 
fastened us up in his 'bus'; so I gin a lunge agin it — somethin' 
broke and out I went on my head in the gutter. Niir was this 
all — there came roUin' down over the hind part of the 'bus' a lot 
of the queerest cussin you ever hearn in your life, cause the feller 
he was a kind of a Frenchman, or somethin'. 

I pickt m^-self outn the gutter and went around to the end 
where the bosses were hitched, a thinkin to pay the feller for our 
ride, and then if he didn't hold his jaw to lick him. What do 
you think? Why, when I got there I seed Sal a payin for botk 
our rides up through a hole. Gelucipher I but didn't that make 
me feel sheepish agin ! 1 jest went back to the hind end of the 
'bus,' and helpt Sal down the steps; and then I walked along 
with my head down, and not a sayin' a word. 

After I'd held my head down till I'd kinder got over the worst 
of my feelings, 1 son-.:r raised i*-, .and the first thing that caught 
my eyes was a shirt — oh, gelucipher I such a shirt as it was. I 
can't begin to d  scribe it 'Twas big enough to a bin worn by 
all creation at oi ct — so big they couldn't keep it in the house, so 
they had to stretch a rope acrost the street away high up, and 
hang it on it 

"Gelucipher!" sez I, "Sal, jest look a there what a whalin' 
big shirt I" 

Poor critter ! you ort to a seen her throw up her hands and 
turn pale. 'Pon my word it scart me almost inter a gcminy fit, 
for 1 thought she a was goin' to faint Sez I : — 

" Sal, what on yearth ails ye ?'•' 

" Oh, do hush !" sez she, and then she staggered and fell, but 
as good luck would have it she fell right atords me and 1 caught 

Think sez I to myself. Bill, this is some, ain't it? Way out 
here in a strange town, with a sick woman. Tlien sez I to Sal: — 

" Miss Sally" — you see, I spoke kinder nice, thinkin' it mout 
help to fetch her to herself — sez I, Miss Sally, are yon much 

" Oh, no!" sez she, " but please don't talk about such things to 
me enny more." 

That got mo wuss than ever ! I begun to see it all — Sal had 
got sc orfully stuck u)iwith St. Louis modesty, that she was about 
to faint because 1 said shirt to her. It don't seem possible that a 
couple of years could make such a dilTerence with enny critter. 
Why, when she lived out here in Illinois, you know, she ust to 
foUer makin' shirts, and she thought no more of talklii' about 
them than nothin'. 

But the big shirt had got my curiosity up, and when S;il stept 
into a store where they .sell bonnets and all kind of wimmin li.xins, 
I slipt back to take another look at it While 1 was a walkin 
around and a viev\-en it like a feller would a boss he was a goin' 
to buy, a purty clever lookin chap came along, and sez I to. 
him : — 

" What in the name of creation do they make sitch bi;; shirts 

" Made to be worn'by the man in the moon,"" sed the chap,aBd' 
on he went While I was a tryin to think whether or not it was 
all a fish story, the feller what keeps a store right there, came out 
and explained that it was merely a big 'concern he'd had tuafle 
and hung (mt for a sign. That was enough. 

When I got back where Sal was, I found she'd bought » whole 
lot of things ; some of them I know'il what was, and some 1 didn't 
Among them was a thing like a wire rat-trap, though it warn't a 
«ire rat-trap, cause it was twenty times bigger — yes fifty times 
bigger, and no bottom in it She called it a crinoline ; and arter 
thinking about it for some time I came to the conclusion that it 


must be a kind of a thin^ to set OTCr the cradle in the summer 
time, and spread curtains on to keep flics off" n the baby. Onct I 
thoui;ht I'd ask about it, but then, rccolloctins; \yhat a stcvr she'd 
got into about the shirt, I concluded I wouldn't. 

Purty soon Sal, she jrn! rcmly to go, and sez she to tho =toro 
keeper: — 

"Please send these thinj:s iuoiind to the Planter's House. ' 

"Ob, no," sez I, a grabbin' the orinoliue by the little end of it, 
and a fluppin' it over'n my shoulder like a.s if it had been a jireat 
basket, ''you needn't go to that trouble — T can carry them easily 
enoufrh, and I'd jest as leaves do it as not." 

Geluciphcr! the way Sal blushed and jirked it oD"n my shoul- 
der! I soon seed my sarvices warn't acceptable, and so I jist sed 
no more about it; but 'pon my word I couldn't understand Sal's 
queer way she'd pot to doin'. 

\Vc left the store, and the next thin ; what attracted my atten- 
tion was a sign in great big letters what said, "Steam Hying Es- 
tablishment." That put me to thinkin' agin. How could men 
be so honest 7 I know'd there was a steam dying establishment 
out here in Illinois — that is, I knowd there was a steam doctor 
here who killed nearly all ho tinkered witli ; but then, at the 
same time, 1 knowd you moiit as well try to fly as to get him to 
own it lie always sez hc'scurin' on them till they die, and then 
he sez the disease killed them. How could a man get ennytliing 
to do when the people know'd he was a goin' to steam them into 
eternity, and nothin' shorter '? That was a mystery — but finally 
1 came to the conclusion, that in a Mgtown like St. Ix)uis, a great 
many people wanted to commit suicide, and that these patronized 
the steam dying establishment, and went ofl'by steam, " What a 
wonderful thing this steam is gittingto be!" 1 sai^, right out loud 
afore I thought where I was. Of course this attracted Sal's atten- 
tion, and she pitched in with- her higbfalutins, and explained, fin- 
ally, that a steam dying establishment was merely a place where 
they colored things, 

Sal proposed that we take another 'bus' for the tavern. I de- 
clined. Kesult — Sal took a 'bus' and \ycnt it alone, while 1 foot- 
ed it along behind, keeping in sight in order that 1 mout not get 

Good evening Haze — pi. u c don't forget to keep this to your-

De.\r Si'init ; — We had quite a lively time here on Monday last, 
2Ist inst., at pigeons. The shooting took place at the Wedge 
House. First match, between James Shannon and D. Carr, at 20 
pair (double) birds, for $-50 a side, the usual distance and boun- 
dary, which resulted in favor of shannon. Mr. Carr finding that 
ho could not win, gave up the match after shoot at eleven pair of 
birds; the 8che lule below is net a good criterion of Mr. Carr's 
skill as a shot; he seemed out of fix on that day, but Ls considered 
an extraordinary good shooter.

can be cured in from five to twenty minutes. Come and try ; I will 
cliarge you nothing for it, as I want to show you the fact. Female 
diseases can be relieved in forty-eight hours, no matter how long stan- 
ding. Ladies I never examine — never ask but a few questions — never 
use any washes but water. Paralysis can be cured. 1 refer you to 
Mr. McKea, a lawyer in this city, who could not lift his right hand 
to his head, and was cured by me in less than twenty hours. This 
looks strange; but ho lives in the city. Fits can be cured. Come to 
my oiiicc and you can see the facts. Drojisy can be cured in from one 
to three weeks. Asthnui. no matter of how long slanding, can be cu-

My medicines are vegetable, mild and harmless. 

My chief practice is in female diseases, Dyspepsia, Coughs, tfrc. —

from this cause in eight weeks; and 1 never knew any one to gel well 
that used the inhaling tube. Cod liver oil is worse yet. 

I will now close, and in doing so, 1 invite all thealUictcd to give up

The Tchf. — Ilettinghas begun to spring a little tit last, with the 
opening of I'tirliament. Ilniglieda takes liis place at the hc;id of 
the Chester t'up betting ; while (iorsehill, a remarkably nice-look- 
ing hunter to all appearance, on short legs, and capitally in, con- 
sidering his six winnings histycar, is at 40 to 1. I'romfsed Land 
is restored to his Two Thousand position, for which, some are 
backing Marionette pretty I'rctdv as well. The Derby is more the 
Litter's game, as we can never fancy him a very (|uiok horse. To 
look at, (Inspard is much tlie siniirtcr liorse of the two I'or an \. 
F, distaijce; and, had he been in the 'IVo Thousand, we should 
have thought it pretty nearly a certainty, except Baron Kotlichild 
can turn up trumps with one of his pair. Ftir the Liverpool Stee- 
plechase, only lli out of 62 have declared forfeit: and Hurniblow, 
a somewhiit slow weight-carrier, heads the " contents " with 161 
lb. At Chester, 102 out or217 stand in : at N'urthampton, 44 out 
of 126 ; and at Vork, ^iO out of T.'i. Fisherniiin, Skirmisher, and 
.Saunturer head the weiglits at the three places. Tom Dawson 
has 61 horses in training, and Joe Dawson 47 ; but Blink Bonny 
has been put out of work altogether, and goes to Xewminstor. 
Ellerdale and Stockwoll (we blieve,) luiiierieuse and Warlock, 
Aphrodite and West Australian, and Mowerina and Kingston :ire 
the other distingtiished unfons announced. It seems that a filly, 
Mag Dods, was, after all, the first Fandango ; and the prowess of 
s fillies, last year, has nearly filled Teddington's list. Backbi- 

tSij. and about :i score ofctlio late Mr. !I. C'unbt's stud, come to 
the huioiner on Monday, at Sattersall's. iMitTlieNob is notamonfr 
tliem. The Sardinians arc in tlie horse-market, and a contract 
has t»cen tiiken to send them a hundred picked cavalry horses in 
the course of a month. Mr. Ten Croeck is still in America, but 
will come over a*;ain i'or tlie racinjj season. As a specimen of the 
handsome way in which he treats hisEnL'lish joe' evs, the t^nndaij

ITTr" In femahi ilisv^'astis especially, my medicines have no C(|u:il. Tliey ffive 
almost entire relief in forty-*?ijchl liours, ami cure in a very short time. They 
pive no inconvenience wlultever. i hey have been before the public for ten 
years, and have ffiveii uniiersal satisfaction wherever useti. Ladies, in writing 
lo me, will pleusi^ lo ilesciibe thc color of the hair and eyes, an l jfivo the ajce ; 
let me know if they an^ married ; how loiijr they have been siik, and the age 
•)f the youngest child, if any. I will then write baek tlie diseases in full and 
make them the jiultres in theirou n cases, badics who.«.e healfli has been injured 
from not havini; i-liildrcn, can have the ditbeulty removed by usinir the Xe Plus 
Ultra anil other medieines, as debility t.-vthu general eatisc. On the other band 
persons whose health may liave been injured from bavins too many tdiildren, 
can have the iliftb-ulty removed, without medieines or any meehunical means, 
by inclosing me Ave  lo1lars. 

These iliin;:s may apjiear very Mranjre, bnl try me in all thai 1 Htatc.nnd I will 
prove ibe fa ts in every ease; and, indeed, your own Jud{;menl^will run vi nee you 
when I explain to you the means. In using the means, you do not suffer an 'in- 
convenieme or injurv whatever I ! 

Dropsy, in any or a^l of its forms, can be relieved in a few hours, and cured in 
from one to three weeks. Gravel, no matter of liow lon^r stantUntr. can bo re 
lieved in twenty-four hours, and tlie pravel, if small, can all ., t ioved in that 
time. Fits can be cured, when desirable, from the llrst dose of medicine. Flux 
can be cureil In from (illcen to twenty minutes. 

The above statements may appear Ktran^c, but if any doubt Ihem, let 
them write to me: I will lake much pleasure in referring them to persons in al- 
inofil every section of the 1 uid.

How Hvep to Plant Seeds. 

The f|nesti m of how deep to phmt wheat, has been several times 
demonstrated in France by experiments, from hiying seed on the 
f-urface to a« great a depth as seven inches below, at intervals of 
half an ineli, and the results in each proved — premising, always, 
the extreme care in choosing the seed, depth of tillage, manure, 
A'c, itc. — wlieat was always, found to yield the largest and best 
crop when planted about one inch and a half deep. Barley and 
oats, from two inches, to two and one half Beets, peas, beans, 
corn and colzjv, one inch and a half Flax and ruta baga turnip, 
a half inch deep. Turnips and carrots, a half inch deep. The 
The seeds for meadows need hanlly covering. 

Xliriish in Ilorsex. 

Thrush, or, as .some call hj/nish, is a disease of the horse's 
hoof, very prevalent in tlic United States ; it is a disease so well 
known among horsemen tliat any description of it seems superflu- 
ous. Its diagnostic symtoms arc firtid odor, and morbid exuda- 
tion from the frog, occompjvnied with softening of tlie same. For 
a common thrush, which does not occasion lauienes.s, the remedy 
is cleanliness; let the foct be washed night and morning, and oc- 
casionally immersed in ssilt and water; tlie trouble will then dis- 
appear. In inveterate cases of this kind, our object must be to 
prevent decomposition — in the use of antiseptics: -a charcoal poulj 
tio ^nowand tlien, and the free use of pyroligneous acid and salt 
are tiie best means. A few doses of the comiwsitioH will also be 
needed: sassafras, sulphui-, salt, and charcoal, equal parts. Dose, 
one ounce daily. A dressing of fir balsam may be applied to the 
frog and sole, which is to be confine*! there in the usual manner. 
Thrush is often the result of morbid liabit in the system o! the 
liorse, giving rise to an excess of morbific products, which natur- 
ally gravitate to the feet, and there find an outlet; therefore we 
should not be in too much of a hurry tostiip such issue, for liv so 
doing the matter may be reabsorbed and produce sympathetic 
fever, swollen legs, etc. The safest way, therefore, is to treat the 
disease both locally and constitutionally.

NewM Summary. 

An alVuir known as the "Ilawsville Tragedy seems to he getting 
up more ncws[ apcr excitement than anything else just now. Jt 
seems that .some misunderstanding existed between a Mr. Lowe 
ef Hawsville, Ky., and a Mr. Maxwell, Commonwealth Attorney 
for the Third District. On Tuesday of last week Mr. Lowe pub- 
licly denounced Mr. Maxwell as a coward and a scounderal; and 
further declared {hat unless mot by Mr. Maxwell in half an hour 
from that time, he would publicly assault him. A mob of .Mr 
Maxwell's friends — some twenty or thirty in number — joined him, 
and at once set upon Mr. Lowe, with pistols and rilies. .Shots 
were fired rapidly, and Mr. Lowe was wounded in two or three 
places; after which he was taken and lodged in jail. On Wed- 
nesday morning following, Mr. Maxwell's friends formed them- 
selves once more into a mob, broke open the jail, and with rc- 
Tolvers, wliileMr. Lowe lie uiuirmedand exhausted from his wounds 
received the day previous, literally riddled his body. Jlr. Alrich, 
a friend of Lowe, was also shot dead in the street. 

Postmaster (leneral Ih'own died on the morning of the 8th inst. 
It is said his death occasioned the utmost sorrow among all classes 
of the community. 

Navigation is now fairly opened at Detroit. 

A riot took place at Kli/.abethtown, N. J. on last Tue.silay morn- 
ing, between a lot of strikers at the coal banks, and the Scran- 
ton party. Ouns, pistols and stones were freely used. Several 
were wounded. 

Mr. Bell, who was recently nominated for Governer, by the "op- 
position party" of Kentucky, has accepted the nomination. 

The Overland Mail from ("alifornia, arrived at St. Louis on last 
■Wednesday. No through passengers. News not very iinportiint. 

The t^uaker City passengers of the 28th January, failed to con- 
nect with the Golden Age, in consequence of the inability of the 
steamer to cross Coatzacoalcos Bar, on account of a heavy gale in 
the Gulf 

Some difficulty had occurred in the Oeliotscli sea. growing out 
of the efforts of the Russian brig Constantinc to prevent Ameri- 
can, French and other vessels from whaling. 

Johnson's Island was taken possession of by a force from San 
Francisco, acting for the Pacific Guano Company. Improvements 
are in progress with the view of shipping Guano. 

The passengers report new silver mines opened in Arizona. 
Lead, copper, iron, alum, gold and silver ore abound in the terri- 

The reports from the Gila mines continue unfavorable. 

With the exception that a battle was fought at Omeaica, on the 
18th ult., between the Reactionists and Liberals, we have noth- 
ing of interest from Mexico. The Reactionists were defeated 
The battle lasted three and a half hours Many were slain on 
both sides. 

The Arazona feves is raging in some parts of Texas, Indians 
.-are becoming troublesome near Fort Quitman. 
Nothing from Europe. 

Cock Fioiiting. — The great return match which oame off be 
I tween New York and Boston on Monday of last week, was won 
by the former. The main was for S-OOO a side, with $1(10 outside 
bet on the result of each fight Boston gained four tights out of 
nine, and New York the other five, thereby securing the general 
victory, and the stakes. The attendance was not very large, in 
consequence, probably, of the high price of admission. 

"A friend who tikes more intercut ia conundrums than wc 
io, has contributed the following : — 

Why is Morphy, the great Chess Charapion, supposed to be one 
of the most honest men in the world?

art of [iriuting, and lo! here ire are, the personal exponents of the 
events of the depravity of mankind, duplicity of womankind, and 
the general instability of human affairs; but being by "virtue of 
mine office " teachers of men, we must ever practice what we 

Printers, of all men, should be philosophers; which being in- 
terpreted, means a class of people wlio work for nothing and find 
themselves; who are expected to be shining examples of all the 
cardinal virtues, although daily victims of human vices; who, 
though being always called upon to aid their fellows, are expected 
to extract their own private wheel by the personal application ol 
their own particular shoulder; a class of beings with whom long 
sufl'ering, patience, and forbearance are supposed to he original 
elements of organization: all of which, it is devoutly to be hoped, 
mv dear '"Spirit," that we are meritorious examples. 

Cincinnati furnishes her share of Type-ical heroes you may be 
sure, the chances and changes whercunto appertaining, arc by 
far too numerous and rapid to be recorded. The latest is the 
rruption among the corps editorial of the Cincinnati Commercial, 
and the flying off of the largest fragment, Henry Reed, to form a 
nucleous for another and rival institution, the Vailif Penny 
Press; leaving the Commercial to the combined ministration of 
her history, business management, weak pens and vigorous scis- 
sors. Then the Sunday Dispatch is offered for sale with "great 
advantages, " which the self-denying proprietor is magnanimously 
willing to resign. The Bizarre died before it could be extricated 
from the shell. The intentions were excellent, the design admi- 
rable, b\it the execution weak and bad — even printers find difii- 
culty in making auger holes with gimlets. 

We are still progressing in morality. According to statistics, 
our police enjoy the personal acquaintance of only 1,000 lewed 
women, and they are supposed to know all. The number is ofli- 
cially set down so. Is not that moral enough for a city of 200,000 

Formerly we only reprimanded the most atrocious crimes — we 
h ive lately taken to hanging and penitentiarying everything like 
vice. Onr judges find it a popular dodge, especially in view of 

In politics we are rather (|uiet Our Legislature has kindly 
offered to take charge j)f iuir mjuiloljissi and ;„ about pass- 

ing a bill giving tlie appointment of five police commissioners to 
our Mayor, Police Judge, and Auditor, whose terms of oflice 
presently expire. Tlie benificence of the Legislative kindness 
will be seen, when it is considered that the Judge and Audior arc 
Democrats, and the commissioners hold office for five years; hav- 
ing during that time the appointment of the police. It will save 
the people the entire trouble of elections — capital idea — truly 
democratic, and very considerate. 

As for amusements, \vc have been well supplied with concerts, 
good, bad and iudifi'erent; lectures, do., do. Theatres have had 
a poor season. At present Mr. and Mr. Klsler, are at Woofl's in 
"Naid Queen," the lady a ji'dicions, little actress, and a charm- 
ing woman ; and Esler, in comic pantomime, shows off very well. 
Barry Sullivan, at the National, is drawing good houses — being at 
the National, the Gimmcnial critic extols him to the seventh 
heaven. Never saw such a rendition of Shakespeare before — 
greatest actor — grandest genius — most wonderful man! If he 
was at Wood's, the same critic would only sec tolerable houses, 
very good Richelieu, judicious Ilunilet, and on the whole a very 
excellent and promising scaond rate actor, which is about the 
state of the case. Inasmuch as we have no Kerns, Booths, &c.. 
just now on tlio boards, Mr. Sullivan makes proper use of the 
press, and unlike Mr. Kean, Buchanan, and Mrs. Mcltlahan, he 
has some tiilent to sustain any popularity he may thus obtain. 
The chief, only, and most exciting topic just now, is of course 
Pike's new Opera House, which is near its completion. The In- 
auguration Ball was a vary grand aff'uir, at which, notwithstand- 
ing the very aristocratic price charged for admission, all classes 
of the community were represented, ladies and lorettes, gallants 
and gailards, vied with each other in the display of jewelry and 
dry-goods; at least, so we were told. The price being a prohibi- 
tion to literary people, we were not among even the lookers on. 
Nevertheless, we are among the number of those who arc proud 
of the monument to taste, luxury, and advancing civilization 
erected by Mr. Pike. Whether it will pay or not, is no business 
of this age. It is there; a harbinger of coming things of an ac- 
quirement yet to be cultivated, and at once ii cause and evidence 
of our progress in the elegant arts. Pike's Opera House should 
be seen in all the splendor of its carving, gilding, painting, and 
stiUuary, to be appreciated; and when its thousand lights shine 
on its vast contours filled with beautiful women and elegant men, 
and its dome shall resound with the grand chorus of Donnivette, 
or the souls of Ijtcrary thousands are melted by the seraphic 
strains of Wilhorst or Coulson, then, only, can the benificence 
and grandeur of Mr. Pike's be fully appreciated. 

The erection of a temple to the muses, on the spot where 

scarcelj' half a century ago an almost unbroken forest reared its 
dreary and unmusical head, is an event worth noting; to posses; 
the money, the courage, or the whim — one or all — to expend 
half a million for the sake of becoming a pioneer and doubtless 
a martyr in the canse of human progress and refined civilization, 
is worthy of respect and admiration; and to have accomplished 
it in a manner that fulfills the requirements of the most cnlti- 
vated art, and the beyond most fastideous criticism, is to entitle 
one to a niche among the few men whom posterity rememberB 
with gratitude. Pike's Opera House is probably the chef drvore 
of architecture and artistic display on the continent Whilst in 
magnitude it equals any, in beauty of design and elaborateness 
of finish it surpasses all. Nothing that the most exquisite taste 
could suggest, art compass, or money buy, seems to have been 
omitted in the decorations. The magnificent dome is adorned 
with classic paintings, the fronts of the boxes with elaborate 
carvings of innumerable and suggestive bas relief, the prosceni- 
um ornamented ami finished by nine collossial statues of appro- 
priate subjects, and the whole completed by the most brilliant 
and artistic paintings and gildings. Damask cushioned scats for 
4,000, fill the house from the parquette to the gods' roost in the 
gallery Spacious lobbies, reception rooms, parlor and ladies' re- 
ception rooms, georgeously finished and furnished, complete the 
accommodation for the public; whilst for space and convenience, 
the arrangemements behind the curtain are no less complete. 
The plan is one of Mr. Pike's own. The builder and superin- 
tendent of the whole is Mr. Trumbull of New York, the builder 
of nearly all the finest buildings in America, and iinacnt — ^ 
owner of Laura Keenes. He says this is the most extensive »nd 
magnificent works upon which he has ever been engaged. 

Pike's Opera House will open in March with a collection of 
operatic celebrities by Maurie Starkosh, comprising the finest and 
most complete opera ever attempted in this country. Four Pri- 
ma Donnas, three Tenoes, three Basses, a fine orchestra, and a 
chorus of thirty, forming altogether a troupe of seventy-five per- 
sons, will enable us western people to judge of our opera, and 
establish a standard of taste among us, of the first order. The 
manager of Pike's is Mr. Chas. Bnnas, a gentleman well known to 
lilerature and the Drama. He has taste, force, knowledge and ex- 
perience The public may congratulate itself npon having an 
(q)era inaugurated under such auspices; and dramatic and opera 
perl'orniers will doulitless appreciate that at Pike's the profits are 
not oaten up by a horde of officious, ignorant and intermeddling 
stock holders. But we have grown tedious. Uf on the Opera 
House opening, wo Will keep your readers posted, that is, if the 
powers that be don't neglect the essentials.

tribute to Paul -Morphy, in its issue of Saturday last: 

 !r. Paul Morphy must now be dubbed the Chess Champiot oi 
the NS'orld, and his pre-eminence will probably be conceded bj 
all men — save our unfortunate countryman, Mr. Staunton. The 
steamer of the 1st inst brought intelligence that the last great 
contest for the laurels — the match played in Paris between Mr. 
Morphy and Prof Anderssen — had terminated in the young 
American's success. He has scored his seven games, two only 
being scored against him, and the same number being drawn. 
Difficult as it is for the European to divest himself of his natural 
leanings to the older hemisphere, we heartily congratulate Mr. 
Morpliy's fellow citizens on his triumph. He deserved it He 
has borne himself throughout — and under some difficult circum- 
stances — modestly and manfully. An ovation awaits him here on 
his return, and he will also be cordially greeted in England, we 
doubt not, if he passes over English ground again, ere he embark. 

W'e shall hiok to some claim, put in by French jourualists to a 
participation in the honor thus contemplated, Mr. .\lorphy, though 
Native- -American born, being liy blood connected with that fair 
land which produced a Phillidor and Labourdonnais. 

In the match between Mr. Morphy and Mr. Anderssen, says 
Galiynnni, the latter gentlemen, in the course of the last two or 
three days' play, won the additional game which escaped our no- 
tice, so that the final score was this: Mr. Morphy seven, Mr. An- 
dersen two. It is impossible not to dwell with unmixed satisfac- 
ion on the frank and loyal manner in which both the plavers 
commenced, continued, an l terinutated their contest I'hey 
agreed verbally to play according to the ordinary rules of the 
game, until one of the combatants was the victor in seven games; 
and after five minutes' conversation, down they sat and playitd on, 
day after day, until the match was brought to a conclusion. That 
was the way in which Labourdonnais and Macdonnell were ac- 
customed to enter on their brilliant encounters, and such is the 
i:rand principle on which all contests in the noble game of chesB 
ought to he conuctcd. 

In these latter years a different system has been in.sisted on, and 
we regret to say, the difficulties have proceeded from England. For 
the match between VIM. Staunton and St. Aumant, there was aB 
much preliminary negotiation as wouhl have sufficed for rtgula 
ting the government of a province, and when at last the games 
were played, two seconds were to be seen at each side, us if for a 
prize fight. It is to be hoped that for the future the match just 
played between MM. Morphy and Anderssen, will serve as a pre- 
cident, and that the masters of the game will consent to enter on 
their friendly combats for championship, without a multitude of 
conditicms, which are as humiliating as they are unnecessary. 
In conclusion we have to state that M. Anderssen returns in a day 
or two to his duties sis Professor of Mathematics at the College of 
Brussels carry ieg with him the esteem of all the Paris players, both 
for his great skill in the game and for his frank, straightforward

fairly take rank as the champion of the Old World as well as the 
New". No Englishman is found to do him battle, and every for-

Pele Sandem thinks he is qualified for the responsible station of 
Schoolmaster, and takes a school — Hoic it began and how it 
ended — A friend adtises him to extend his usefulness to the 
little rillaije of Louiscille, Illinois — He goes and sees the folks 
— A sniping adventure. 


Dear Dave : — Mebby you were surprised wten I left the Bend 
80 suddenly, and it mout be that I'd better kinder explain matters 
to you and the rest on 'em. You know the school I got up? well 
I couldn't make it go — not for want of qualification, or anything 
of that sort, for Squire Harris sez he thinks I'm well qualified — 
but because 1 couldn't manage the young 'uns. They're hard 
cases, them young I'apaw Benders; and what made 'cm wuss, 
you see, they'd allcrs know'd me, and they lookt on me as an 
equal If I'd a Itecn a stranger I could a managed 'em like a 
knife. For an illustration of how they treated me; When I 
went to the school house in the mornin — yo\x sec I'd only kept 
one day — I put little Bill Brown to his A B Cs and told him he 
had to larn em in double quick time. He went off and set down. 
In about half an hour I called him up; and, would you believe it, 
he didn't hnow a single one of 'em. 

Sez I to him, "You infernal young rascal, you, if you come 
up here agin 'thout a knowing every one of 'em, I'll lick you like 

" Y-e-s! " sez he to me, kinder scornful, and a pokin his finger 
atords mo, " y-o-u'd play thunder, Pete Sanders ! D'ye reckon I 
care for you, old IVte Sanders?" 

Kervim ! I fotch him on the side of his head, and out came a 
sqall. Then his big .brother, Tom Brown, bawled off bis coat 
and swore he'd lam me till I wouldn't know my granny. Then 
all the rest of the boys they stood up and hurraw'd for Tom ; and 
seein as how I stood no chance among them I jist loaped outen 
the bole over the writin board and made tracks atoards old Sad's 
wootls pisture. The boys didn't follow me, so when I got about 
a quarter of a mile from the school house I mounted a stump 
and dismissed the school, and that's the last I ever hearn of it 
Rather a bad beginnin that; but, as aunt Sally Scroggins sez, a 
bad beginnin allers has a good endin. 

That evcnin I met Bill Hatch, the pump peddlar, you know, and 
I told him all about my bad luck. He sed he nas mortal sorry 
to hear on it, still he thought I had talents and larnin enough to 
make a good schoolmaster; and then he let in to advisen me to 
go to some strange place and try my hand. I told him I didn't 
know nary place to go; and then he said Louisville, in Illinois, 
would suit mo to a hair, as they had no school, and that, if I'd 
go there, he'd give me a letter of introduction to Doctor Green. 

That pleased lay fancy, "  next mornin I put all my money 
in mv pocket, took leave of dad and mam and Betty ScranUm — 
Squire Scranton's" Betty; and then I footed it to Washington, where 
I mout take the kara for Louisville. 

I tell you what, Dave, this ridin on the kars is some, and kinder 
gets a feller what ain't exactly ust to it I know 1 felt mortal 
squimish, cause, you sec, it was ray first trip. But contrary to 
my expectations, and right agin what mam said — for she vowed 
I'd be killed if 1 went on 'era — we got clean to Flora, safe and 
sound 'thout an accident 

I got off at Flora and walked acrost to Louisville — seven miles 
— and here 1 am. I don't know precisely how to take the pros- 
pects for a school. I think sometimes they're tolerable good, and 
then agin 1 think they ain't I can't exactjy understand these 
Illinois folks. They call me "The Hoosier," cause I'm from In- 
diana, and seem to let on like thoy thiak I'm a little green, which 
you know ain't so, Dave. I'm up to snuff, as the editor of the 
•'White Kivor Valley Weekly Times" sez. It mout be that I 
take 'cm that way accause they're strange and have strange ways, 
and that they don't mean nothin ; still I can't exactly like a little 
affair what took place last night Let me tell you about it, and 
then see what you think. 

Thcy's a feller here named Bill Fenner, and him and mo, 
we've got party thickj that is, we war till last night. Well, last 
night Bill came up to me, and s?z he : — 

•'Oh Hoosier!" 

Sez I, " Wliat?" 

Sez he, " Did you ever go a snipin ? " 
Sez I " Xo— what is it ? " 

" I'll tell you," sez ho. " We take a bag or two jest artcr dark 
and goes over in the Little Wabash Bottom here, whar the snipes 
are mortal thick. Well, when we gets over there some on us sets 
down and holds open the bags, and smokes a big cigar, made on 
purpose, while the rest on us goes out and stirs up the snipes. 
Well, as I was sayin, they're mortal thick, and we soon get 'em 
stirred up in a dreadful flutter. They soon get kinder confused, 
some way, and as soon as that takes place they see the fire on 
the feller's cigar and makes for it until they runs kerflumix right 
into the bag'what he's a holdin open. Why, we catch a bag full 
in a little or no time." 

" Possible ! " sez I, " why I never hearn tell o' the like afore. 
It must 1)0 rich fun; " and I gin my hand a graceful swing, cause, 
you see, I wanted to act out the schoolmaster. 

" Fun I " sez he, " well, now you're a tjilkin ! They's nothin on 
top of yearth what can hold it a candle. Go-hokey ! a feller can't 
help a laugliin till he makes his sides sore for a week." 

" Well, now, that must be rich," sez I. 

" Rich I I reckon it tis," sez he ; " and we're a goin out to catch 

a bag full to-night How would you like to go along with us and 
see the fun ? " 

"Jam up," sez I, cause, you see, I was in for ennything, for I 
wanted to make myself popular, which, I know'd wouldn't make 
nothin agin my gettin a school. 

All was arranged. The big cigar was made, and jest artcr 
dusk we — some six or eight in number — took a bag and started. 
We went away down the river to the bridg}, and when we got 
over in the Bottom we went away up to the snipe range. 

When we got to the right place the boys sed, seemiu as how I 
didn't know the ground as w^ell as they did, mebby I had better 
hold the bag and let them drive. Of course I had no objections; 
so they fired the big cigar and I took the bag and set down, a i 
holdin it open and a smokin. The boj-s, they scattered off arter 
the snipes, and were soon clean out of sight and hearin. 

For about an hour I sot a puffin at the big cigar, and a holdin 
open the bag, and yit nary snipe had come, nor could I hear a 
stine of the boys. I began to think the matter over several ways, 
and sez 1 to myself, "Pete, this seems mortal queer! It shorcly 
ain't a good night for sniping. But whero's the b lys? Oh, seein 
as how it ain't a good night for snipes, I reckon they're had to go 
a good ways to find enny." Jest then I thought 1 hearn some- 
thin rustlin in the leaves, and I silenced down, cause I spected 
a snipe was comin. I waited, but nothin could I see of it I 
smoked still harder — same result Presently thinks sez I .to my- 
self, "Pete, mebby it's come and got in the bag, and you didn't 
see it;" so I got up and shook the bag; but nary snipe. 

I sot down and held the bag open another hour; and then not 
hearin anything of either the boys or the snipes, I begun to feel 
kinder one.ary. The thought struck me, it mout be possible 
they'd g it lost, and I fixed my mouth to holler; then I thought 
I'd better not, cause it mout get out a report that I was scart; 
and that mout go agin me in gettin a school. 

I toughed it out anoter hour, with the same success; and then 
I begun to get mortal oneasy and restless. To this I added an- 
other half hour, and then my cigar was used up. It was a gittin 
late in the night, and I know'd they must be somethin wrong. I 
hollered at a venture, but no one answered. They were all out'n 

Here was a fix to be in. Way up in a strange river-bottom, at 
the dead of night, all alone, 'thout knowin exactly the way out 
All the rest of the boys lost or drowned, or somethin of the kind. 
What was to be did ? I know'd it was no use a stayin there enny 
longer, so artcr hollcrin a few times more as loud as I could, 
and not hearin any response, I started back, a» near as possible, 
the way we had come. 

As l blundered along through the brush I got up a chat with 
myself, jist for pas-time — sez I, " Won't there be a dreadful stir 
in Louisville when I get in with the news that all them boys are 
lost in the bottom ! I guess they'll be more excitement than ever 
was at  /ia  place afore. It's a droudfui thing! I jist tell you, 
Pete Sanders, it's orful I and it mout be that you'd get in the 
same fix afore you get aut o' this. What if your mam and Betty 
Seranton ould see you here a pumbling about over logs aud one- 
thing-another — wouldn't they be in a dreadful figity fix? I can't 
bear the idea of — " ker-plug! I cum into a slough of water jist 
then, up to my arms. Of course my conversation was nipped in 
the bud, and as the water was most mortal cold, you ort to a 
hearn me give vent to my feelins. 1 know'd it was too late to 
back out, so I jist waded through and then blundered on. 

Away bout midnight I got to town — wet and tired. I hurried 
up to the tavern to spread the alarm about the boys what went 
out with me. When I got there what do you think I seed ? Why 
there sot all the infernal cusses, leaned back on their dignities, a 
smokin cigars and a sniggcrin about somethin. As soon as they 
cotch a glimpse of me, all \«et, with the bag over my shoulder, 
the jist roared out in a regular ha haw. 

Now, Dave Dawson, you know my temper; and so you can 
draw a purty good idea how mad I was; cause, you see, the truth 
flasht on me at once that they'd been playin a trick on me. I 
couldn't hardly .stand it Down went the bag, and off came my 
coat, and then up began to go my sleeves, preparatory to lickin a 
lot of 'cm — then I thought about my school, and know'd it 
wouldn't do. I held in the best I could and walked off 'thout 
sayin a word. 

You shall hear from me agin soon, but whether I'll be here or 
not depends on circumstances. Give my love to all the folks in 
the Bend ; but don't tell enny on 'em about this scrape — especially 
don't tell Betty Seranton., 

I remain yours, Pete Sander.s, S. M.

lIoRKri.i.B M.tssACRE OP A MISSIONARY Family. — The Rev. Mr. 
Klifman, a Methodist missionary who had been preaching to the 
Indians of Oregon since 1S38, was murdered with his family 
not long since, under singular and appalling circumstances. The 
small-pox having broken out among the savages, while the mis- 
sionary's family were not attacked, the former thought that this 
pestilence had been introduced by the whites with the intention 
of exterminatirg the red race. Acting upon this horrible sus- 
picion, their next step was revenge. A bold chief was selected 
for the deed, who stole into the chamber of the sleeping family, 
and buried his tomahawk into the brain of the missionary and 
that of his wife, and then other Indians rushed in, and helpless 
children, male and female employees were butchered, the house 
razed to the ground, fences destroyed, and every vestige of a once 
happy home destroyed.

and chaste upon its face — and this may be easily ascertained surpassing the powers of an effeminate, and worthy the muscles 
upon its first introduction — you may receive it into the family ; of a man. 

• We are about to change the style of our especial depart- 
ment of the '' Spirit," and in place of the " Central American," 
substitute a Literary Department; that, we trust, under the pres- 
ent, and for ought that we can discern, future aspects of affairs 
in regard to the country and question that led us to first establish 
and afterwards continue that paper, will make such a change 
•agreeable to our readers generally, and in nowise displease those 
who from the first encouraged us in our elibrts to regenerate and 
Anglo-Saxoni/.c that unfortunate country. Indeed there are many 
• if our readers, who are not familiar with the history of our 
struggles to impress upon the natives of Nicaragipa the advan- 
tages of a republican government, and the necessity of a general 
.system of education; who do not know that the "Central Ameri- 
can" was a distikct paper, and only became a portion of " Young's 
Spirit of the South " that its proprietors might, by furnishing a 
sheet three times its size, satisfy those « ho ha l subscribed to that 
alone and paid in advance. This obligation being fully discharged; 
and ourselves in no way pledged to any present organization to 
Americanize Central America or Nicaragua, we feel at perfect 
liberty to discard this feature of our paper, or continue it as we 
find most advantageus to our interest and agreeable to t!ie greatest 
number of our readers. We have suffered as nluch and held on 
as long as any one connected with the legitimate project of Amer- 
icanizing Nicaragua by peaceable cniigratiom. When neeesary 
we were consistent advocates of holding that country when it be- 
came ours by force of arms, but having been comidetely ousted 
and conquered by our friends, we have resolved to very patiently 
submit to our fate, and endeavor by a strict adherence to our old 
r.iotto, " Never say die," with an increased draft upon our ener- 
gies and preseverancc to secure a subsistance in a land where 
although blessed with a republican government, a liberal system 
of education, a religion to suit each and every one, there is yet 
room for individual action, and where perhaps a moral inflencc 
may not be wholly unprolitably e.xertcd. Indeed our own expe- 
rience and observations inclines us to the belief that there is no 
race of beings upon the face of the earth that so much needs an 
entire new school system as the Americans. All the experience 
(if travelers abroad, and that of persons thrown upon our fron- 
tiers in California, Texas, or Nicaragua, eorroberates the state- 
ments of almost every one who has been in either of the above 
regions, that an American is strictly a law-abiding individual, and 
that where there is no law a sense of moral duty seldom enters 
into his plan of operations — his course of action being entiVely 
. ontrolled by circumstances and the condition of his wardrobe 
T the state of his stomach— a dilapidation of one or a vaeauity 
.n the other being cogent reasons for a speedy replenishment, 
;i.nd the euggcstio\i of nature a brief constriction of the law of 
nature, " Self-prcs !rvation," to the dcstrueiion of all others and 
all else. This is a peculiarity of the American, remarkable 
above all races we have ever m'et, when the moral law was left 
alone to control the actions without fear of present retributive 
l)hysical force. Were there a different schocd for the education 
i:f the moral or gentlemanly nualitics of our youth, we should find 
more of those who are gentlemen in civilized society, wherejthe 
surroundings of virtue and honesty are constantly exerting theirl 
influence upon them, and the fear of punishment or exposition 
ever in full view — exhibiting a little more of the human quality 
divine, that so gloriously illumes mankind when properly devel- 
oped; when those restraints are ciist off and they are placed be- 
vond the pale of civilization. Nor is this want of fixed and 
moral principle alone wanting in men. Woman, the angel wom- 
an, needs more of the same schooling than many would be willing 
to admit. The half-breed Indian girl of Nicaragua, in her chaste 
conceptions of right and wrong, would shine out like a liriglit 
star in a ha^y atmosphere, placed beside one-half of the fashion- 
ably bred belles of our country; and the native woman of Cen- 
tral America, who nurses the infant .at her breast, and watches 
over the circle that surniunds her; who never heard a nuptial 
vow or saw a marriage ring, is truer to the man she claims and 
calls the father of her children than two-thirds of the wives of 
those devoted constant husbands who recognize the law but not 
the obligation of "husband rs. wife." A retrospective glance at 
the state of society of our late field of labors, and the condition 
of that which will probably command them for the future, has 
carried us partially away from the jtoint at which we were aim- 
ing when we commenced this article. Perhaps the impression 
made upon the mind by the many late terrible trngcdies reported 
in our exchanges, scarcely one of which has not more or less of 
them, has made uslnoro than usually repletive, and, pcrhap.s, 
unwarrantly distrustful of the present state of first-chiss society. 
There is certainly an error somewhere, and the man or woman 
who can devise a means to correct it, will confer a favor on hu- 
manity; and, perhaps, do more good by remaining at home than 
by going abroad on a foreign mission where peojilc have less ed- 
ucation and more virtue. Some great man has said or ought to 
have said, for we have the idea and do not claim it as original, 
that " Thero is much greater safety in books than in society." 
Of course we mean good books, for bad ones, like had associates, 
may and will most assuredly contaminate; but a good book is 
ever good, and there is no guile or deception in it if it is pure 

circle ; press it to your bosom ; become fascinated with its society; 
entertained by its eloquence, or subdued by its pathos, and be in 
no danger of being deceived in an unguarded hour by venomed 
fancy lurking in its folded leaves, or betrayed by a smooth and 
flattering tongue tuned expressly to enchant and then deceive. We 
would give our daughters books before beaux ; and when thorough- 
ly schooled by the one, we should deem them better prepared to 
understiind and appreciate the other. We would give them an 
education that should fit them for the trials and struggles that 
every woman is more or less subjected to before she passes the 
whole journey of this life, however blessed with this world's 
goods or bountifully supplied with friends. The reading should 
be of that nature that would more fit them for the real than the 
ideal future, that almost every young miss pictures to herself the 
only destiny she has to fulfill, the very destiny she alone is not to 
reach. IJe.side a sound moral obligation, we would urge upon 
teachers an i parents the neccsity of a thorough physical training, 
souiethiug that would fit the body to sustain the weight, either of 
mental culture that may be heaped upon it, or perhaps mental 
torture that it umy be subjected to. 

liow many frail, delicate students, like some of our most beau- 
tiful but too tender flowers, can scarce bear the weight of a heavy 
dew without drooping, and the first scorching sun withers them, 
or the slightest fVost fweeps them from the earth! We would not 
rear wives as mere pots or playthings for man's idle hours, but 
as a conipanion, au assistjint and friend to the husband in time of 
trouble, a moulder of the minds of them that are to fill the re- 
sponsible places of the earth. 

There are many opinions "regarding women and her proper 
sphere " that wo believe will soon be very much changed; and the 
extreme between the " weak " creature she is too often found, and 
tlie '' strong minded " that she never should be here, will be a 
happy medium that will insure to her more privileges and less

"The archers assembled, again will be seen, 

With their iiuivcrs and l)ow9, and their garments of green; 

Not to ileal out dcvt ruction, like archers of old, 

But their arrows to tix in the circle of gold, 

And to show to spectators what skill can devise, 

When ti-.loiifs eiignged, and when honor's the prize." 

The fair ladies of some of the eastern cities, having during the 
past winter enjoyed themselves in the practice of that healthy 
and exciting exercise, skating, are, now that the frost-king is 
about to be hurled from his icy throne, turning their attention to 
another equally graceful, healthful, and attractive pastime, to 
wit; archtry. 

Cannot some of the lovely dames and demoiselles and gallant 
cavillers of our own "Sunny South," take this matter in hand 
and organize societies for the promotion of knowledge relating to, 
and practice in this ancient and honorable sport 

To the fair daughters of the South, and especially of our own 
beloved Kentucky, we would say that, lovely as you are, the 
practice of archery would enhance your loveliness by promoting 
your health and developing your forms. A lady never appears 
^Bjore lovely and attractive than when clad in a tasteful archer's 
crress. ^ 'She stands erect; her little left foot thrown foward and 
peeping modestly from beneath her robes; her eyes, before so 
dangerously bright, now dazzingly brillant, and her checks 
fronr excitement as she draws her arrow to the head prepara- 
tory to sending it whiifzing to the maijc Ah! many an arrow 
of love from Cupid's quiver has shot from those "windows of the 
soul" straight to the heart of before-unconquerable gallants, 
while, seemingly, the fair archeress was intent only on aiming 
her arrow. 

To the gentlemen I would say — would you have your lady 
friends still more beautiful and fascinating? If so, encourage 
them in the practice of graceful and strengthening exercises and 
amusements. Than archery, no other pastime can be more ex- 
citing, and at tlie same time more bracing and invigorating. It 
does not devclope one organ or faculty at the expense of another; 
every faculty is called upon to act its part in the sport, every 
muscle brought into action. The chest is fully expanded and, as 
a natural consequence, respiration must be full and unconfined. 
The excitement, though in one sence the same as that attendant 
on games of chance, is a whole and purely natural cxhileration of 
both mind and body. The physical as well as the mental ijual- 
itles are brought into requisition, thus strengthening and at the 
same time refreshing and recreating the entire System. Every 
gesture or position made or assumed by the expert in archery, is 
an illustration of the poetry of motion or attitude, from tlie first 
taking the position, through all the preparatory movements un- 
til the speeding home of the shaft; and finally, to many, the most 
beautiful of all the positions belonging to this sport, is' the loan- 
ing foward to watch the course of the shaft — the eye and attitude 
indicating intense anxiety and expectation as to the result of the 

Some perhaps may consider archery an effeminate sport To 
all such we would say, take a good rosewood, yew or horn bow; 
practice till you can send an arrow over from three to four hun- 
dred yards, and then say whether you do not consider it a feat 

In "merrie England " there are many societies of archers; but 
America, as yet, I think, but one society. That is "The Uni- 
ted Bowmen of Philadelphia." The name in Jicates that gentle- 
men alone are members. Of the English societies many are 
composed of both ladies and gentlemen. The ladies costume of 
the "Royal Shcnvood Archers" was formerley a green silk dress, 
white chip hat, with a wreathe of acorns and oak leaves. As 
tliis costume did not show off all complexions to equal advan- 
tage, it was iifterwards altered to the following: A green silk 
scarf, fringed, looped and confined with gold. This was worn 
from the right shoulder, cnissiug the bosom, and pendant on the 
leftside. Other societies assume different costumes, and some 
wear nothing more than a single button bearing the initials of 
the society. 

As to whom we are indebted for the invention of archery, 
nothing defi litely is known. Suffice it to say that the first men- 
tion of it we find is in the ICth verse and twenty-first chapter of 
the Rook of Genesis, where a bow-shot is given as a measure of 
distance; also in the 20th verse of the same cWpter it is said of 
Ishmael, "And God was with the lad; and he grew and dwelt in 
the wilderncs, and became an archer." Frequently after, we 
find in the Scriptures, mention made of archery; also in profane 
history we have full and interesting accounts of mighty deeds 
achieved by arms of archers, ami so on. Until the invention of 
powder tlie bow was the most effecttial weapon posessed by our 
progenitors. , 

Will not some of our fair ladies press fiiward and induce some 
of their gentlemen friends to make amove in this matter? Chess 
c!ubs can be formed on every hand— why not establish clubs of 
archery, where the eye; the nerves; the body and the mind can 
be trained and educated. To excel in" archery the mind 
must aid the eye in judging as to distance and direction; the 
nerves must be steady and under control, while the muscles must 
possess the strength to carry into effect their promptings. 

We hope ere summer has far advanced to see clubs organized, 
bearing names suited to our American cars; and as to costume 
we know our Southern belies, with their exquisite taste, would 
surpass their sisters of old England in design. 

Be.\utiiful Illu-Stuation ok Life.— Bishop Ileber, upon de- 
parting for India, said in his farewell sermon: 

■'Life bears us on like the stream of a mighty river. Our boat 
at first goes down the mighty channel— tlirougli the playful mur- 
muring of the little brook, and the willows upon its glassy bor- 
ders. The trees shed their blossoms over our young heads, the 
fiowers on the brink seem to offer themselves to our hands ; we are 
happy in hoin!, and grasp eagerly at the beauties around us ; the 
stream hurries on and still our hands are empty. Our course in 
youth and manhood is a wider and deeper flood, and amid objects 
more striking and magnificent We are animated by the moving 
picture of enjoyment and industry passing us; we are exalted by 
our short-lived enjoyments. The stream beare us on, and joys 
and griefs are left behind us. We may be sliipreckcd, but we 
cannot be delayed; for, rough or smooth, the river hastens to- 
wards its home, till the roar of the ocean is in our ears, and the 
waves beneath our feet, and the floods are lifted up around us 
and we take our leave of earth and its inhabitants, until of our 
further voyage there is no witness save the Infinite and Eternal,

On an eve whilst I sat napping, 
Mouth ajar as if for trapping 
Flies, there came a rapping, lapping, 
SlappingJIgainst my outer door. 
"Come!" and soon a chap was standing 
In my room a scraping, bending, 
And a note was to me banding. 
Then he left me as before; 
This did he, and nothing more. 

Thinks I, "in the very nationi 
What in all the whole creation! 
AVedding — party — invitation! 

Or, perhaps, some statly visit! 
I, with wonder growing, stealing 
O'er me, turned it, thus revealing 
To my gaze around the sealing 

Printed, "What the devil is it?" 
Sure enough, thinks I, what is it? 

More surprise and greater wonder 
Led me to, with many a blunder, 
Rend the mystic seal asunder, 

Cast the wrapper to the floor. 
Peep'd I then within and "spunky" 
Waxed I — some infernal "llunky," 
Had been sending me a monkey — 

Coat on — buttoned down before. 
Like my own and nothing more. 

Oh, it was apokerisJt creature; 
Crooked legs and crooked feature; 
Sucking whisky from a pitcher 

With a straw — a hose design! 
On the page 'neath where 'twas sittin', 
There was something still morcgittiii" — 
111 a mo(lcf»t hand was written, 

"Take this for your Valentine; 

This shall be your Valentine."

Containing Important Legal Decisions for the Benefit of Counsel, and 
Humorous Judicial Incidents for the Amusement of the Judge, the 
Bar, and the Jury. 


Bums, convicted of the murder of Burke of Cincinnati, was 
sentenced by Judge Carter, to be Iiung on tlie 27tli of May. 

Charles Cook and Wm.,Seiter of Cincinnati, both convicted of j 
murder in the second degree, were sentenced to the penitentiary , 
for life. j 

A bill is before the Massachusetts Legislature wliich proposes I 
tore-organize the courts by erecting ten judges for the trial of all 
jury cases throughout the coinmouwealth. There are now six 
judges of the supreme, seven of the common pleas and four of 
the superior court 

A darky on trial recently, at Detroit, was called upon to prove 
his character. Old Jake, another darky, was introiluced, and swore 
point-blank to his good character. As a clincher on hi.*" testimony ; 
the Court asked him if he was sure the defendant wouldn't steal ] 
a chicken. He balkek and scratched his head. At last he an- 
swered with a grin: "Lord bress you, Massa, I dunno nuffin ■ 
bout de nigger; but I tell ye, if 1 was a chicken and knowd he 
was a comin, I'd get ciean up, sure." 

A legal friend, after writing us many clover things about how 
much he values the "Spirit," drops in the following: — j 

PrrniiiTT's Cocrt. — Col. Pritchettof Wcstport. Who has nev- 
er hoard ofCol. Pritchett of Wcstport? His name has become 
almost a household word; especially in that region of Illinois 
round about where he lives. Col. Pritchett is what we term a 
"hardy pioneer;" besides which he is a gentleman, a good judge 
of matters and things, and an oddity in his way. j 

Long ag'o; ere Yinccnnos had become a great city; ere the ! 
Wabash was spanned by a railroad bridge; ere cigars were spel- 
led seg.irs. Col. Pritchett was elected to the high and responsable j 
office of Justice of the Peace ; which office ho held with credit to 
himself and to [the entire satisfaction of^his friends. There was ; 
one thing certain, lie troiild have order, and he would maintain 
the  li'_Miity of bis Court. 

On one occasion it is said, that a fellow entered Col. Pritchctt's 
office and done something Avhich did not exactly please his honor. 
The Colonel was not a man to stand and look on silently at un- 
pleasant things, 80 his first act was to knock the fellow down, and 
his next was to tine him for contempt of court. The fellow seem- 
ed to regard this as a now kind of action, and one thatdid not en- 
tirely suit his ideas of justice, therefore he signitied bis intention 
of taking an ajipeal Col. Pritchett — then Squire Pritchett — look- 
ed at him steadily f' r a. nuiment, knit his brow, doubled his fists, 
and then exclaimed in a voice not altogether low and musical ; — 

" Appeal, h — 1 ! I'd like to know where you'd go to find a 
higher court than mine! My court is one from which no appeal 
can be taken, I'd have you know." 

The Colonel would grant no appeal, andsothe matter ended. 

Here is something about another Magistrate, which, through 
the kindness of a friend has found its way intoour Legal Column. 
If the " Squire " of whom it is told is still among the living, he 
must be a regular mummy, for the writer, in an appended note, 
states that when last he saw bim, many year'; wz \. he wti-; almost 
too thin to cast a shadow: — 

" Sf[uire Runtyng was a real living squire in his day ; the only 
bad thing about him was a very disagreeable stoppage in his 
speech. The Squire, like many persons of his day and locality, 
made use of an occasional cant phrase, as some would say. Sock- 
adoodle, was a great word with him. For instance, if he wastell- 
ing a friend that he intended to sue John Parnos,, he would say, 
" If John Barnes don't come up to taw I'll sock.adoodle him, sure." 

One day a lawyer was up before his honor, making a speech. 
He was rather an impudent kind of fellow in his way: so in the 
course of his remarks he tiKik the lilterty to tell the Court that he 
thought it was small potatoes. an l that he didn't regard its de- 
cisions as being altogether judicial ; that ho held it in contempt, 

All of a sudden his honor found himself growing very angry, 
for it occurred to him that this must be .a real genuine contempt 
of court So calling the " Wmh " to order he said : — 

"I f.f.f.f." 

Finding, in his excitement, he could not deliver himself of the 
word fine, he pau.sed a moment His feelings would not subside, 
however, and he tried it again : — 

" 1 f.f.f-f-f s-o-o-o-«-s-ocadoodlc you three dollars for contempt of 

Kvor aftcrwai-ds sockadoodle was a popular by-word in that re- 
gion of countrj'. 

Another SuRi'nisE Party. — The Worcester, Mass.j Transcript 
relates that a young lawyer of that city one evening last week 
called on a young lady to take her to a place of entertainment, 
when she went up stairs to "fix" for the occasion. Soon, hearing 
footsteps on the stairs, he stepped into the dark entry, and as the 
coming feet reached the last stairs he threw his arms around her 
waist and placed his lips in liangorous proximity with her cheeks. 
A push, a slap, ami a scream frightened him into one corner of 
the entry, when the advent ot the old folks with a lamp enlight'en- 
ed him to the fact that he had been kissing the " black but come- 
ly" Dinah, whose descending steps he had mistaken for those of 
his beloved. 

Cireat Wrestling match. 

One of the greatest wrestling matches known to the history of 
this country, says the Albany Kiiickerburker, came ofl" at Ireland's 
Corner's on Tuesday. 'J'hc parties were Dr, Frazer, of Troy, and 
Abram Harrington, of Watervliet The parties met at the cor- 
ners, at 9 A. M., for the purpose of trading horses. 'J'hey talked 
horse two hours, but could not trade, as each wished to "put a 
leak " into the other. At last Harrington lost his temper and 
proposed to give up horse-trading and go to wrestling for twenty 
dollars a side — the winner to pay the drinks. The Doctor agreed 
to this and put up the money without hesitating a moment The 
stakes were held by Elias Ireland. 

Hound 1. This was a side-hold. It lasted 45 minutes, during 
which time Harrington got the Doctor four times against theshed 
and once under a two-horse wagon. Towards the end of the round 
the Doctor lost his wind and went down on a broken bottle and a 
lot of bricks. Cheers for Harrington. Ten to five ofl'ered on 
Harrington — no takers. Bottle holders gave parties something 
wet out of a bottle and wiped their faces with a piece of oil- 

Rtmnd 2. This was a " square-hold flop." It lasted one hour 
and ten minutes. The Doctor tripped Harrington and stagirered 
him. Harrington made a spring and recovered his foot-hold. 
Cheers. The Doctor, now braced back, lifted Harrington from 
the ground, and undertook to fall in a mud hole with him. Cries 
of foul. Harrington touches the ground and gives the Doctor a 
yank that lifted him out of his boots. Tlio Doctor rallied, set his 
teeth and went in. Harrington exhausted, went down, cutting his 
chin with a tin pan. " First blood" for Frazer. Cheers. Twenty 
to five on the Doctor — no takers. 

Hound 3. This was a " back-hold." The round commenced 
at 50 minutes [ ast 12, and finished up 5 minuter past 3. Time 2 
hours and 15 minutes — the longest round (m record. During the 
round, they crossed the road 18 times, got into the cattle-yard 14 
times, brought up against the pig-pen 27 times, and upset a wag- 
on 4 times. The round finally ended in favor of Harrington, ow- 
ing to the Doctor tripping his foot against a piece of scantling and 
falling on Davis' dog, killing the animal instantly. 
The three rounds agreed upon, having been gone through with, 
Harrington was declared the victor, amid the shouts of a multi- 
tude, which amounted to near 200. Harrington smiled a smile, 
and askc'l Ireland for the stakes. 

" llavn't got them, all spent for drinks hour ago — in addition 
to which the bar-keeper has a balance against you of $4,36." 

This led to a fresh wrangle, the result of which was, that Har- 
rington has agreed to wrestle with Ireland and bar keeper, on 
Monday, for $,")0 a side. 

As a po3tsori|,t to all this, wo would state that Davie intends to 
sue Frazer for killing his dog. Ho lays the damages at $30. 

Mobile Si-ort— The Ai.bions.— The Spring mooting, under the 
new Jocky Club arrangement, commences, we believe, on the 'ilst 
inst., and the 3 year old stakes have filled magnificently, Socks, 
Planet, Fannie Washington, Sigma, (we believe, )and other names 
of highest renown make up the noble roll. The colt or filly which 
takes ofi" the prize, will have to do a deed of rare emprize. It is to 
be regretted that a faster course is not the theatre of competition; 
we believe that Mobile is quite sandy 

The Albions have run themselves into a tip-fop reputation. 
Col. Thomas (i. Bacon, ofS. C, is going to carry to New York in 
April, Bill Hearing, Bill Cheatham, his two-year-old that Conga- 
ree beat, at Charleston, by a head, in 1:50—1:50, and a two year 
old filly — all Albions and the last-named a full sister to Sea 
Breeze. Wo hope they will not steal the Colonel's negroes on the 
trip; but we think ho runs great risk in making the tour. 

By the way, speaking of Albions, we see that our friend Col. 
S.\M Hill, of Dallas, basso far overcome his repugnance to the 
stock, as to have entered a black filly, by Albion, in the Mobile 
Stakes. We hope she may convince the Colonol, by her speed 
and game, that it is a winning strain— and that not even he "can 
make a mark on the track when they will give in." 

There will be some very lively hotting on the race when Socks 
and Planet come together, for the third time. Virginia ardor is. 
no doubt a little cooled down, but there is yet enough left of the 
gay Planet to warrant considerable investment If they can beat 
Socks and will only invest on it, they can pocket the entire State 
of Tennessee. Why, they are even talking, up there, about nam- 
ing a county after the white-footed van(iuisbor of the immortal 

Let us all be there to see ! 

Put Through a Course of Sprouts.— A correspondent of the 
Norfolk Day Book, writing from on board the United States Ship 
Cyane, ofi'Cape Horn, gives the following amusing account of the 
manner in which boys on their first voyage to sea are "treated:" 

My two boys Jim, the 1st from Smithfield, and Jim the 2d, 
from Norfolk — were the first I believe that Old Neptune got his 
clutches on ; he lathered them well with tar, and shaved thera 
with an iron hdncl hoop. William Whitehead, from Norfolk, 
and William Lee, from Baltimore, came next — and were duly put 
through a course of "sprouts." Lee's whiskers made so close an 
acquaintance with the tar that it proved to be rain for Neptune's 
razor to do anything for them. The ship's barber, so fond of 
shaving himself, ran up to the mast-head, and swore lie would 
jump off before he would submit to be shaved. He was brought 
down, however, and went through the shaWng — ho was then ta- 
ken.under the pump and elegantly saturated, in fact, docentiv 
soused for five or six minutes, by that time he was pretty well 
cooled ofl'.

Mr. Fnmk Drew has renewed his engagement for a week 
lonircr, and "Our American Cousin" lias continued the "even 
tenor" of his successful run. Tlie name and fame of this pro- 
duction, more than any intrinsic merit of its own, has gained for 
it the popularity and success with which it met in New York. 
The Come ly is sketches, and in this we are disposed to Bud one 
cause of its popularity. In no country are ncw.^papcrs so uni- 
versally read, or paragraphists so general as in the United States, 
and as this comedy is of that sketchy style usual to newspapers, 
we think that it tints pleases the masses. It was evidently writ- 
ten hurridly, and for a specific sum of money, not an uncertain 
amount of fame. Mr. Taylor, like Mr. I'ouricaulf, is capable of 
stealing good thunder, but decidedly inca] ahle to originate his 
own article. His drama from the Fren.;h, " Still Water's run 
Deep," " Hetribution," " Helping Hand," "To I'arents and  Jura- 
dians,"  Vc., arc most excellent stage pieces, while his " Court and 
Stage" is dull and heavy. 

On Tuesday night, II. O. Tardey's Comedy of " Nationalities " 
was produced in excellent style. Jndced the manner in which 
the "Cousin" and this American Comedy have been placed upon 
this stage is much to be commended, and the taste displayed by 
t!ie management ii admirable indeed. The new comedy made 
i|uite as great a hit as its famous predecessor, and was played to 
a full house on Friday night, the occasion of Mr. Drew's second 

Mr. Barry Sullivan is underlined to appear on M(mdny. lie

reader and a distinguished iBCtor.

HiiOAUW.w. — The Miss Wcstern.s were at the Broadway last 
week, and were, to use a theatical phrase, a success. " Antony 
and Cleopatra " revised, which bids fair to be as successful as our 
" American Cousin, " is (m for this week. 

HoWBRY. — This establishment is reported not so successful for 
t'le past two weeks, as usual, though the result has not been such 
as to alarm the managers. This week Fox, Boniface and Fanny 
Herring have brouglit forth a counterirratant to public curiosity, 
iu the shape of an " ICnglish Cousin. Although it was advertised 
that Vox would be exceedingly funny; that Fanny would shake 
her ambrosial curls admirably, and that everything would be 
strictly original, the success was not such as might be termed 
" immense." 

The Boston papers come down on "Our American Cousiu" 
without mercy. They stylo it a "humbug, " a " thing," a "con- 
glomeration of froth," and a " Play of the syllabub style." 

The Miss Westerns play at the National this week. 

Ordway Hall is quite a centre of attraction this week — Warren 
White, the vocalist, is there.

"Ti;rkey3 used to be very plenty here in Indiana," said the 
M Major, " I've seen 'em so thick you couldn't hardly get about 
for 'cm. They kept the ground scratched up so mellcr that a fel- 
ler would sink knee-deep into it. You needn't to laugh, for lean 
prove every word of it. To let you know how thick they were, 
I'll just tell you what 1 did once. I started out one night to kill 
.some turkeys, but before I got very far I found that I had but one 
bullet with me, except the one in my gun. Thinks I this is a bad 
job, but I'll do the best I can with 'em. So 1 goes on, and 1 sees 
a great many fine looking turkeys, but they warn't fixed to suit 
me. At last 1 sees about fifty sittin' all along side by side on one 
.straight limb, so 1 slips along under 'em and scores away, and 
what do you think? " 

"Expect you killed two at one shot," said several of the lis- 

" No sir, I didn't shoot at em. 1 split the limb that they were 
a setting on, it opened, their legs slij.ped through, it slapped to- 
gether again, and 1 had 'em all trapped. I then loaded niy gun 
with the other bullet, blazed away and shot the limb off dose to 
the tree. Down they come a fiutterin' and a lloppin' and 1 shoul- 
dered the limb and carried 'em all home. ' 

A Co.sTi.Y l'"ui:ii;nT. — " I never was so purpri.sed in all my life 
as I was once at New Orleans," said Tom. " I seed two Hat-boats 
come in and land, and then I seed a heap, of fellers gather around 
cm. They all seemed to be powerfully surprised, and so I thought 
I'd go and Bee what was up. So I goes and looks into the boats, 
and I'll swear 1 never was so surprised in my life. The people 
they was all a gapin' and a cussin atui a swearin' it beat all crea- 
tion. At first I thought maby I was mistaken, so I goes and takes 
another good look, and upon my wor l and onor I was never so 
surprised in my life. Thfin two boats was loaded 2 Jwn down 
with nothing hut chicken's t/izzards. " 

them in every possible way and shape. Imagining that his listen- 
ers were all trembling at his narrow escapes, he concluded to give 
them a settler, and so commenced as follows : — 

" One evening late T was agoin' up a steep holler. Well it war 
a perfect cliff, on each side straight up and down over two hun- 
dred feet. As 1 war a goin' along I looked back and thar I sees 
more'n a hundred Injins a slippin along after me. There's no 
chance to run out to one side for the rocks war so steep and high, 
80 I jist commences padding it up the holler. They hooked it 
right after me, and we run more'n five miles. AtJast I cum to 
the end of tlicjholler right, up agin another wonderful high rock, 
and they had me hemmed in. I found they's no chance to get 
away, so 1 set too and shot two of 'em and — " 

Here the narrator paused to think, as if he had forgotten some 
part of his adventure. His eager li.stener asked how he came 

"Well, he continued, I set too and shot two of 'cm, and the 
rest all come runnin' at me a ycllin' and a scrcamin' like dcvilp, 
and — " 

Here followed another pause. 

■' What did they do ?" asked one who had become much inter- 

"Well, sir, they jist cum a swcepin' up like varmints, a making 
theverv ground ring with their yells — and — " 
" But what did they do'?" 

"Seeing he had got his story somewhat tangled up he exclaimed 
pettishly : — 

" They all rushed on me and killed me, of course — what in the
