Thi Montreal Herald describes a horrible scene which was recently witnessed in Can- th ada- The court-house and prison at St. 0B Scholastique caught fire, the flames spread- iQ ing with great rapidity. The prison con- ^ tained six prisoners ^ three men and three ^ women. The men were with difficulty res^ cued. The women could not be reached. One of them appeared at a window and piteously implored ^Mow Dieu, suavez C1 nous! suavez nous ! ^ To relieve her was now beyond the power of man. Men, wo^ men, and children who were spectators of this scene fell on their knees, praying the Almighty to pity her.
On the topmost step of a fragile ladder were the feet of the Rev. Mr. Barnabe, with hands clasping the iron bars, implor^ ing the poor creature to prepare to meet her God. Here, at the risk of his life, he gave the dying creature the last consolation of his Church. Ere it was completed the black smoke became red, and in it the poor girl fell back to be neither heard nor seen again. Her mother and sister were vic^ tims with her, but neither of them were aeon or heard from the outside ; suffocation, no doubt, came early over them. These three women had been confined for destroy^ ing a newly-born infant.
. A Little Bit or 'History.^ By reference, says the Troy Times, to the Constitutions of New York, New Hampshire, Masaachu- T setts, New Jersey, Tirginia, Maryland, North Carolina, formed before the date of the Constitution of the United States and in force at its adoption, and also the Con^ stitutions of Georgia and Pennsylvania, formed soon afterwards, it appears that in respect to the qualification of the electors Q for the most numerous branches of the State Legislatures, there was no distinc^ tion on account of oolor in those ttine x States. Connecticut and Rhode Island, being under the old royal charters, could have none. South Carolina, by its Con^ stitution ol 1776, allowed negroes to vote, but in 1778 the privilage was restricted to - every ^white man,^ etc. In Delaware by ' / Act of February 3, 1787, emmancipated * slaves and their issue were debarred ^the privilage of voting at elections or being J elected f* and even this seems to have been a violation of the letter of the Con^ stitution of the State. It is well known, i among intelligent men, that the practice of J admitting free men of color to vote obtain- p ed universally at first among all of the orig^ inal ^old thirteen.^ In Virginia, negroes voted side by side with white men until 1830 !
Stkphen A. Douglas' Opinion.^ The fol^ lowing extract is from a speech delivered I T)y Stephen A. Douglas before the members I J of the Illinois Legislature a short time pri^ or to his death, and will show what he thought to be the duty of Democrats:
Now, permit me to say to the assembled Representatives and Senators of our belov- ft
, cd State, comprised of men of both politi- j I cal parties, in my opinion it is your duty ^ to lay aside for the time being your party creeds and party platforms ; to dispense with your party organizations and partisan , appeals ; to forget that you ever were divid^ ed, until you have rescued the Government ! and this country from their assailants. ] Winjnthis paramount duty -shall have been performed it will be proper for each of us to resume our respective political positions according to our own convictions of public j > duty. [Applause.] Give me a country -i first that my children may live- in peace; J then we will have a theatre for our party
-organizations to operate upon.
How much authors change their opinions ^ of their own works according to their time -, of life is illustrated by the following an- J eedote. Baron Ha Her was in his youth de- > voted to roetrv. His house was on fire, ] and to rescue his poems he rushed through i ? the flames ; he contrived to rescue his man- ' ,. uscripts, but tea years aft^jr he condemned : . to the flames the very poems which he had j ? risked his life to preserve.
The Old Style and the New. ^ The year used to be reckoned to contain 365 days 6 hours ; but strictly speaking, the year only contains 365 days, 48 minutes, 48 seconds. In 1752 there ^were eleven days Jover, and C?f by Act of Parli anient, the 3d was called the 13th, and tt ^ reckoning and the true woe motion made to agree. The new style is il or called the Gregorian style, because it was |J^W introduced by Pope Gregory, who, at Rome, introduced it as early as the year Can 1582, when the vernal equinox fell on the 11th instead of the 21st, and ten days were .__ dropped. The 'Rom ans added the day on leap-year on the 6th t>f the calends of March making two-sixths, or Mi sextux, and hence the expression Bissexti le year, or leap-year. A leap year is theyeai thV.t divides evenly by four, and consequently, the present r-pB year is a leap-year, when ;iny ladies feel A t so disposed have, according to an old say^ ing, the right to ^ pop t*ie question.^ In ! ATCj England, until 1752, we b ?gi-'-n the year at the vernal equinox, and to mako dates agree with those of other .nations, between January and Lady-Day, our writers used to put two dates thus, Febraar t 7, \'$ the Sal' bottom date being that f roi i January the l6t, and the upper from the rrevious Lady- Day. The Russians still adh ere to the old style.
The Episcopal Courch in Pens sylvania. ^ The Philadelphia Telegraph says :
The Episcopal Church of thi s f diocese has won new reverence and afl'ecv. ion from all denominations of Christians by tb obold and outspoken stand taken by her clergy, Grt with the vener.ible and much-loved Bishop Potter at her head. Since that manly stand we are glad to learn that the church an(j has been strengthened and increased in tar ppor- fluence arTd numbers, besides renewing the -p love and devotion of her members, who for - and years were made unhappy by her refut al to denounce in prop or terms our National
like sin and crime.
