Lovk, Forgert, and Suicide al Vienna. I
We have just received from our corres
pondent at Vienna the particulars of a ro
mance of real life so extraordinary, that were
it not for the respectability of the writer
we should be halt inclined to question the
probability of the occurrence.
luis Scotti, the head of a commercial
house in this capital, some time since de
camped, having previously commmitted a
forgery-to a considerable amount. It was
supposed that he had concealed himself at
Pesth, and a warrant for his apprehesion had
been despatched to that city, his property
in the meantime, seized by his crediotrs. and
his house taken possession of by a bailiff. Ear
ly in the morning 01 the 1 5th "bcotti suddenly
returned to Vienna, and knocked at his own
door, at the corner of the great market
square. The person in charge let him pass;
but immediately he had done so, hastened to
the first police station, to communicate the
circustances of Scotti's return. About break
of day the officer of justice arrived, and
finding the door open, rushed into the bed
room where Scotti lay. 'Not a step further,'
bawled out the culprit stretching forth from
the counterpane two pistols. 'The first
nho aoDroaches me is a dead man.' This
was SDoken in a note that showed the deter
mination to suit the action to the word.
The consequence was that the house was
soon cleared, and the retiring party heard
the hnhs and bars closed behind them. As
ther did not venture on forcible measure
it was resolved to starve out the lion in his
den. The fortress was therefore invested on
all sides, no one was allowed to come out,
and none of the besiegers had the courage to
The affair got wind; the street became
more and more crowded every hour. So
passed the morning. In the afte-noon, about
four o'clock Scotti's affianced bride, Losine
Aliio. the daughter of a great upholsicr,
voting and beautiful girl, co.ne to the police
office, promising, if they would allow her to
see Scotti, she wou'.a persuaae i.m to urreu
ler at discretion.

niVht did not separate ih-.v.i. At length,
about eleven o'clock, a shot was .e ird Loin
within; a minute later, anoiher, and then
some groans, and all was still as death. The
door was forced open. They found the first
room empty; in the second, two corpses.
Scotti had shot his mistress to the heart, and
then himself. On the table was Jjund an
empty campaign bottle, and the remnants of
n mirmer. proving that they lind resiled
tKimcAU-pi before the catastrophe. Two
hearses, accompandied by a vast multitude
of the citizens, bore the suicide to the hospital.
I give this relation without any glossary,
merely staling the bare lacis.
An Irishman was sent out to put a letter
;n ih rt-office directed to a ludv. He
brought it back.
Bad luck to them post-officers, ycr hon

The fnllnwin? admirable hits at a few of
the Whig absurdities of the present djy, are
from the Georgia Constitutionalist:
"The Whigs are consistent! They are no
hypocrites. The Whigs charge Mr. Van
TWeii with beinor oDoosed to the late war.
Ak them if thev would vote for Mr. Web
ster, in preference to Mr. Van Iiuren, and they
will answer, ves. Mr. Webster, it is notori
ous, was opposed to the war, as well as the
Hartford Convention. The Whigs charge
Mr. Van Karen with being a tariff man, an
internal improvement man, and even a Na
tional Bank man, notwithstanding his repeat-
A Honn!. Ask them if thev would vote
for Mr. Clav. in preference to Mr. Van Bu

Mr. Van Buren with being a proclamation

T.nn:fenrv. and no hvnocrisy! Further-

vmiee the first measure that will be adopte
under his administration, will be a Nationa

w higs, because he has declared such an insti
tution unconstitutional. In the West Mr.
Pay and bis Whig friends support the Gen
eral, because a national system of internal
improvements and a protective tariff will be
adopted. In the South the Whigs support
him tvtaiine he is onjK)sed to those Federal
m.,..,re. Tn the North and West Slade,
Granger, Tappan, and Stewart, support Gen
eral Hnrrwon. beruiuse the cause of Abolition
will be placed in a more commanding point
of view. In the South the W higs support
him r.ef.nnf he is no Abolitionist. How can
snch different views of the W higs be recon
ciled? The optics of tl e Whig must be
eak indeed and General IIarnon must have
been gifted to a high degree wun tne iacui

Negro Revolt in Louisiana The New
Orleans Picayuue, of the 1st. says Aboli
tion incenaiaries are creeping about among
us like moles in the ground, as blind, as diffi
cult to catch, and as mischievous. Four
hundred happy and peaceful slaves, having
been wrought upon by some of these sneak
ing pests to our well being, broke out in fu
rious revolt on the 25th ult. in the P.-rish of
Lafayette; but the poor misguided blacks
were soon taught their error, and lorty ol
them were placed in confinement, while
twenty were sentenced to be hung upon the
27th. Four white abolition rascals were de
tected, acting as leaders, in conjunction with
one yellow fellow, who is notorious for being
a great scoundrel. It is the white incendia
ries that ought to be hung, or, if the poor mis
led slave must suffer, double, treble should be
the punishment imposed upon these heartless
emissaries of a fanatic and reckless sect.

while he made some excuse for leaving a
