IG-* Hon. Henry A. Livingston was on Wed?
nesday unanimously nominated for reelection a
Senator from the Second District by a Convention a:
Newburgh. No other name was presented. Tili?
emphatic testimonial was most richly deserved.
Mr. Livingston was elected iti the great tornado ol

devotion to tin- interests of bis constituents. Kirn,
in his principles, faithful to his convictions, but
courteous to bis opponents, be bus made mam

The institute Fair.?Sickness among our
force and a pressure of other dudes hare constrair
ed us to spend fewer hours so far. in the Great
Fair at Niblo s than wc de-ired and wncipated.
We hope for larger orrmorWn&ies hereafter. Last
evening the room.- were crowded?far more so
than at* any former time. Those who go to exa?
mine carefully the articles exhibited will do weil
, to go bv day or quite early in :be ni onring. Those
' who do not object to be seen as well as to see will
usually find tbe crowd densest from 3 to 'J P. M.
It was difficult last evening during that hour ex?
amine systematically. We took note- on a few
article* that arrested our attention.
Of Sioret, ther?" is an immense number and va?
riety. For Psrlors, we beiieve the ' Air-Tight
, Stove'of L. V. Badg'-r. -00 Water-st. deserving of
\ preference. By this stove, a room may be heated
; twenty-four hours without additional fuel or even
attention to the fire. With coaJ, we arc assured it
, wii! burn steadily for three days. The saving of
! health, lime, care, dust, Sec. as wuJl as cost, must
i of course lie very great. The principle hero ap] He:
j must be very generally adopted. 0; Cooking
j Stoves. Fisk's r.cw Cylinder Stove please.j us quite
; as well as any. It is a combination of Fisk's and
' Partnelee's patent?, Laving the revertible floe, a
J fine oven in the centre, and places for fjur boilers
'. on the top, a roaster ir. front, &c The savir g of
space, fuel, &c. is h'-re carried to very great per?
fection. A drum for heating the room or i.:ii.
above, just when and as much as is desirable.
I seems to carry the economy still further if desired,
i The Railway Cooking Stove, (H. Wicke-. 231
! Water-st.) offers some advantages. Toe Bailor
Stoves of Stanley V Co. commend themselves by
j the smoothness of lbs c.istinc and beauty of the
wurkmunsriip. There are oUiere. doubtless, equal
lp deserving of notice, but among the multitude
there presented we failed to note them.
Of Parlor Furniture, we think the quantity is
less than we have s<-en at former fairs, but ihe
quality is excellent. The ' Patsnt Extension So?
fa'of N.McGrow, -ITS Pearl-street, seemed to
defy improvement. It stands a large an] elegant
Parlor Sofa, but by a tou-h of the hand it becomes
a double bed, of unexceptionable quality, its back
forming one half; the pillows and clothes lying in
a box beneath. Ten cmn is restore the whole
an uasuspected Sofa nguin. Of luxurious Chairs,
fanary Tables, Sec. there is a satisfactory exhibit.
Of Hat?, there are some capita! specimen;
Those of Fish, 1157 Broadway, and Spencer, cot
ol Centre and Chambers-sts. seem t" leave nothing
to desire in re-pect cither of lightness elegance 1
form, or finish. F. Degen Ac Co. 1' <i >l,l-st. have
aUo a cood article.

veral of our eminent dentists?we could not in all
cases distinguish to whom credit is due. Those
>f Dr. J. G. Candce, 92 Broadway, are perfect ii
form, and possess advantages over those former!)
used in the ease of insertion and certainly ' ! re?
Oi Fire-Arms, there arc many varieties?oik
rille wc noticed of extraordinary beauty. Then
are several kinds of Pistols : the Self-Cocking und
Revolving one of J. G. Bolen is a general favor?
ite. It gives six discharges in the same lime thai
i pair of ordinary pistols could be fired.
Coehran S Revolving Cannon, on ftic same
principle, attracts very general attention. A
stream of balls or grape may be thrown from it
with all the force of ordinary cannon-shot, and ni
lca-t six times as last us from en old-fasl ioneel
gun. No sponging is needed : tic danger of burst
ing or accident is encountered : the gun may be
levelled and ranged where any connon can be?i
but a third henvier than an ordinary one of equal
calibre, while ii will do at least six time- fj.%<
CUtion. A fiigate aimed with heavy guns of this
construction would be a match tor two liners of'
the old school. Fewer men are required to work
them than the old guns.

A Duelist Baffled.?After this aSartive revo?
lution, no political event had agitated the North of
[taly, until tne unexpected occupation of Anoona
by the French. An occurrence which recently teok
place there wa* the occasion of much merriment,
it appears that among the French officers, was
i one who pri led himself greatly upon his *kili wi h

talent, he hid deliberately bullied nearly all b:s

priest who was quietly reading at a table. Mon?
sieur took a seat by bis side. The Priest soon after
called for a cup of cotTee, which the officer im
mediately took possession of. The latter not
doubting it was done through inadvertence, re?
newed the order; the Frenchman eagerly grasped
the second cup also. Without losing his patience
in the least, the Briest for tie- third lime repeated
bis demand, and again h:s tormentor unceremon?
iously appropriated the beverage to himself.
Bvthis time, the singular behavior of the duel- ]
ist, had attracted the attention of every one pre- :

turning to his tormentor, exclaimed, " How tin

The officer started to bis feet in a rare?" Priest

?At St. Petersburg, on the loih ult., says the
Post Ami Gazette, the audience at one of the
principal theatres perceiving a great light bebind
the curtair. anticipated some gtutui display of
fireworks, and began to express their delight b\
clapping und shouts of applause. Thi* delusive
joy was only increased instead of being converted
into terror, by the appearance in front of the stsge
of tin actor, vociferating the house was on tire;
for ihr people thought this wns a trick of the
scene, and continued their noisy acclamations. To
undeceive them the manager ordered the curtain
to be raised, ami expose to ihetn the dimes which

vens to take something along to drink, as st would
cost too such on bo irJ the boat: an 1 he assent?
ing, Scott and Franklin purchased, one of them
a pint of gin, and the other an ounce of arsenic,
which was put into the gin. and Stewart drank ot
it until he became very sick, and then drank more
to cure himself. This only increased his illness,
and when they arrived in New-York the o'd min
was so far gone as to be apparently near Iiis end.
Dr. Archer, the Coroner, was sent fi r, to hoi ! an

liquor and threw it overboard, ami the existence
of tbe poison in the gia, ami its effects on Stewart,
were proved by the testimony of Dr, Archer, the
object of these men, it appeared, was to destro)
the life of Stewart, that they might get entire pos?

guilty by the jury, and tbe Court sentenced Scott

T?k Plague of Nart.Es.?A fortnight had
' elapsed since Alfonso ofProcida lm.i lust trod tbe
streets of Naples : and vet, miserable as was tbe
aspect they then wore, how much was that misery
now increased I TVe have said that the town had
been divided up into districts un.l all itted to the
superintendence of different boards of health n-t.l
inspectors ; rut these could do little to arrest the
ravages of the plague?nothing towards providing
food for the famishing population. I'ay by day
the pestiienc.? had extended its ravages: day by
day had it appeared more hopeless to attempt to
contend wi h it. The army an.1 tt;>- Citizens alike
( fell beneath the scourge ; for no discipline was ot
sufficient force to restrain the brutal (.i. rmau
soldiers from intercourse with the Btllicted quarters
whenever they thought that pleasure or booty, or,
above all, wme, was to be thence obtained ; and
the Spanish troopers, long disorganized at Rome,
were in little better subjection. The whole city
i was one vast charnel-house.
Pity and honor contended in the bosom of AI
fonso of Proctda as he advanced ?long the open
streets. At the doors of tb.- churches, on tin
steps of ihe houses, the den.l lay in heap-. De?
spair, terror, and fainrness hud overcome even
natural feeling; and there appeared to be none
there who cared for them. A few pri.--:s ami
mediciuers only might be seen circulatii g rap dly
trom house to house, warding off, with a long car e,
whomsoever should appear to be coming in con?
tact with them. A few tumbrils or open carts
creaked along the tlirity pebbles, bearing awn>
their loads of dead, and attended by the lowest ol
the Neapolitan nibble, who had been bribed to act
the part of undertak.-os. Not Im I it been easy lo
find those w ho would for pay for. go the char ce id
booty which others obtained bj indiscriminate
robbery. ? ? ? - -
Discordant, however, as weir the sounds of
merriment which rent bis ear, they prepared noi
Alfonso for the sight which he witnessed, when,
turning round an angle, be entered ibis populous
street. Before the open doors of a half under?
ground cellar, st.>od a large wagon piled with tin
bodies of the dead, which were tossed one abo?

which produce more than some of the meadow* in
Sherbune. Mr. Aitsert Ware has extensive i
of them, and it is believed he has gathered up?
wards of two hundred bushels from a single acr-.
Such land is now valued higher than any whicn l

NAPOLEON'S EYE AN D CALCULATION.
By long experience, joined to great natural
quickness and precision of eye. he had acquired
. the power of judging with extraordinary accura?
cy both of the amount of the enemy's force opposed
to him in the field, and of the probable result of
movements, even the most complicated, goingfor
ward tn the oppo-ite armies. The rear of artille
' ry. the smoke and rattle of musketry, even the
falling of balls around him. were alike unnble to j
divert hts steady gar..-, or disturb his accurate
judgment. Never was he Unois-e. to i?? .mistaken
in the estimate which he formed 0:1 the distance or
approach of the tire of the enemy. Even on the
' farthest extremity of the horizon, if his telescope .
could reach the hostile columns, he observed every
movement, anticipated every necessity, and troni
the slightest indications drew correct conclusions |
as. to the designs which were in contemplation ?
No sooner had he ascended a heigVt from which
a whale tield of battle could be surveyed, than be
looked around hira for a few minutes w ith his te?
lescope, and immediately formed a e!--ar concep- |
tion of tbe position, forces and intentions ot the
whole hostile array. In this w ay he could, with
surprising accuracy*, calculate in a tew minates,
according to what he could see of theii formation
am! th -extent of ground which they occupied,
tlie numerical f#rce of armies of 60 or S I,000 <
mis: and if their troops were at all scattered, he
knew at once how long it would require for them
to concentrate, and how many hours must elapse
before they could make their attack. On one oc?
casion, in the autumn of 1313, some of Napoleon s
i mentis expressed an opinion that he might ex
pect on attack on the side m Bohemia. " From
what 1 can see," said he. calmly closing his teles?
cope, " the enemy have there two corps ot si.xly
thousand men, they will require more than one
day 10 concentrate and be ready te attack ; w ?
may pursue our march."
NAPOLEON'S II Mill's DURING A CAMPAIGN.
If in the course of a campaign be met a cou iei
on the road, he generally stopped, got out of b -
carriage, and called Bcrthier or Cauluincourt, who
sat down on the ground to write what ti e Emperor
dictated. Frequently then the officers around him
were s.-nt in different directions, so tr at hardly onj
remained in attendance on his person. When he
expected s>?nr.- intelligence from h . Generals, imil
: it was supposed that a battle was in contemplation,
tie was generally in tiie most anxious state of dis?
quietude; and not unfrequentiy in the middle of
'the night, called out aloud?"Call D'Albe. (his
principal Socretary,) let every one arise." tie
th-n began ta work at one or two in ihe morning :
having gone to bed the night before, according to
j his invariable custom, at nine o'clock, as soon us
ne had lined. Three or four hours' sleep was all
that he eithor allowed himself or required ; during
! he campaign of 1813, there was only one ni~lit?
! list when be rested at G iriitz, after the conclusion
of the urmisree, that be sb-pt ten hours without
1 .vakening. Often Cuulaiiicourt or Duroc were up
i with b m haul at work all night. On ?urh occa
sions his favorite, M ?meluke Rustun, brought him
frequently -innig coffee, and hs w alked about from
lark till sunrise, speaking and dictating without
intermission in hts apartment, which was always
well lighted, wrapped up in his nightgown, with a
-ilk handkerchief tied lik.- a tuibau round his h< n I.
liui. these stretches were onlv made under the
pressure of necessity : generally be retired to rest
at eight or uirie, und slept till two; then rose and
licated for u couple of hums; then rested, or more
? ii ently meditated, for two hours alone; afrei
eotch he dressed, and 11 warm bath pr pared h
ior ihe labors uf the succeeding diy.

ih ? smaller was for Bertbier, the larger, the lion's
share, b-r himself. The emperor could recline in
1 dormewe in front of his s.-at: bur no such sc
commodation was afforded to bis companion. In
ihe inter) ir ol the carriage were u number of
Ifawi rs, of which Napoleon had ihe key, in which
were place 1 despatch - not yet read, and a small
ibraiv of books. A large lamp behind him threw
i bright light in the interior, so that he could read
without intermission all night. He paid great at?
tention to his portable library, ant had prepared a
ist of duodecimo editions of ab >ve five bundled
vo umes, which he intended to be bis cons-ant
travelling companions; but the disasters of ihe
latter years of his reignprevented ibis design from
being carried into complete execution.
