The New York Herald thus concludes
an article headed "The Imperial Crown of
Germany—King William : "
"After a lapse of sixty-five years tbe
empire of Otho and Charlemango is re
vived ; but the new empire is not and will
not be in any seme Roman or holy. King
William has mado a very sensible piocla
. raatiou. Let us hopo that tbe German em
pire will piovo blissful to the German peo
ple ; and let us also hope that the German
people, ui.iUd, will be powerfully instru
mental in advancing tho great cause of
human civilization. They have yet an
unfinished task on their hands. The re
sult is net doubtful.- Privilege and respon
sibility are both groat with thorn. Ifivill
be well for them and well for humanity if,
in tho Imur of their triumph, they remem

"That Little Church Around thb
Corner."—The New York correspondent
of tbo Boston Journal, speaking of Roy.
Dr. Houghton, the rector ol that "little
church around the corner," says:
" Except the laborers at Five Points, he
is better acquainted with tho sorrowing
ones cf New York than anf other clergy
man. A distinguished organist took to
drink to such a degreo that he was unfit
for his position. Wheu everybody cast
him oil', Dr. Houghton took_im up and
triod to savo him. for several months
ho took care of him on Saturday nights,
that he might befit to play on Sunday and
not become a beggar. A clergyman of
very*brilliant talents, of fine family con
nections, became intemperate, and was
shunned and discarded by all. In his dis
tress and disgrace he called on tho benevo
lent clergyman, who took him in, fur
uished him with a comfortable room in the
tower of his church, gave him a chauco to
reform, and held on to him to the last.
Such a man would allow no human being
to want for tbo cousolation of religion

feelings of relatives however a man might

TnE Ni.w York Douule Marriage—
Cbo«», the Bigamist, Still Missing —
Tiio New York- World in referring to this
remarkable case of bigamy, noticed in tho
Journal, says that tbe story has "pro
duced a profound sonsation in the exten
sive circles of acquaintances of Mr. Calvin
11. Cross, tho principal actor in tho drama
which may already have proved a tragedy.
The utmost astonishment was expressed by
tho friends of tho young mau and bis
family, his business acquaintances, and his
employers. No tidings of his whereabouts
or his late have beeu received. He may
bo either in this city or its neighborhood,
or, as many ot his frionds appear to think,
he may havo taken passage on a
steamer for Europo. All, however,
is surmise It is said that Miss
Emma Luckey, or Mrs. Calvin R. Cross
tbo second, is living in retirement
in Brooklyn. Sho is said to be worth
about $100,000 in her own right, and to
be related to tho very wealthy Livingston
family. It appears that Cross came to
this city from Rhode Island when ho was
but eighteen years of age. It is asserted
that the present ia tho sixth marriage en
gagement fie has made since he was mar
ried to his first wife. After his arrival in
this city he went to .board in Union Square,
and it was here, two or three years subse
quently, that he became acquainted with
his first wife—then Miss Calvin, of Boston.
He was then employed by the dry goods
firm of 11. D. Campbell & Co. Upon the
organization of the Central Bank he took
a position a3 check cleik, and was soon
promoted to the position of book-koeper."
A Rich Story.—A Parkersburg (West
Va } paper says that several members of
tha Legislature took tbe cars at Grafton
late on tho evening of tho 16th ult., for
Wheeling, aud among tho number was a
Mr. G., of somewhat large proportions,
physically, and a Mr. D., of proportional
These two—the stalwart Mr. G., and the
smooth-faced little Mr. D.—took a berth
together, it seems, in a sleeping car. The
little man laid behind, and tho good-natur
ed, waggish Mr. G., before.
Mr. D. soon was sleeping and snoring
furiously. Mr. G , moro restless under
legislative burdens, soon rose and was sit
ting by tbe stove, when an elderly lady
cama aboird and desired a berth.
"All right, madam," said G. ; "I took a
berth with my son, aud you can occupy
my place in that borth where my little boy
Taking Mr. G. at his word, the lady dis
robed and lay down with the boy.
Aftor a quiet repuse of some time, the
boy, Mr. I)., became restless from some
cause, and bi'gan to kick around to the
annoyance of the old lady; so, in a maternal
manner, sho patted him on the back and
"Lie still, souny ; pa said I might sleep
along with you."
"Thunder and lightning I" cried the leg
islator ; "Who are you 7 I'm no boy; I
ara a member of the West Virginia Legis
It is said that tho old lady swooned, and
could not be brought to till D. promised
G. should bo impeached.
D. swears that the thing shall not rest
What action the Legislature will take
for the protection of its dignity, remains
to be seen.
The Starving Indians.—The President
bas directed that tho Indians near Forts
Laramie and Patterson, whose desperate
condition of need was reported by Gen.
Auger a short timo since, shall be subsisted
temporarily. One thousand head of cattlo
are to be sent forward for their use, aud
Capt. Sullivan,commissary of subsistence at
Sioux City, has been ordered to report for
the duty of supplying these Indians with
subsistence. Tho War Department has
also directed that a limited issue of ammu
nition, suitable for 'small game, bo issued
to the Indians near Fort Laramie.
Pius the Ninth, should he survive
until June of the present year, will have
completed tbo twenty-fifth year of his
pontificate, and have outnumbered the
years of auy of hid predecessors in the see
of St. Peter, unless it be true that St.
Peter himself hold that dignity for a quarter
of a century. Should the greatly desired
event be attained, the faithful of his flock
throughout tho world will make it the
occasion of high ctrcrao_ial,
Tho house of William Crown, ot Braid
wood, Illinois, was burned a few nights
since, snd William Reynolds and two of
Crown's children perished in tbe flames.
Ten other persons In the house wtre more
or le.s burned. Reynolds hat his life in
attempting to re»cue tbe children.
Father llyactnthe, in his recent dis
course in Lor.dcD on "France, Germany,
the War," revealed tlio toweringly great
man he is. To comprehend that greatness
we must sea Hyaointhe as a Frenchman,
looking upon once beautiful France, npon
once gay, bright Paris, as a lover looks
upon his sweetheart. Over there in Lon
don he could hear the wail of France, he
could bear tho tramp of invading hosts, he
could hear the screaming of the shall?, he
could see the dead in heaps, and the dying.
He heard and saw and felt it. all as he
looked down into the tearful eyes of the
immense throng arouud him, where were
so many of bis own countrymen sorrowful
and almost despondent. He felt their own
keen heart-pangs over the desolations of
France, he had the tenderest sympathy, but
he had not come to prophecy smooth things,
nor to tell tbe French that they were the
most injured people in the world, and
the Germans the most brutally tyrannical.
No. He even told hia audience things to
them unwelcome. As Moncnre D. Conway
reports him in tho Independent, "if he had
been brought thero to curse the hosts of
Germany, he did not do it. He paid a
high tribute to Germany—to its 'extra
ordinary, generous seeking for truth,' ita
vast contributions to learning and civili
zation ; and pronounced the German
universities, 'evon though he stood in
England,' tho best in the world.
He regarded with honor the aspirations
of Germany for unity, and launched a
bitter rebuke against that ' base envy'
which, conjoined with ignorance of Ger
many, had led France to a criminal ag
gression upon that country. He uttered
an impressive warning to Germany that,
if Bhe should now take up tbo role which
France had dropped ; if, with a similar
blindness and injustice, she should attempt
similarly to rebuild in Europe the fabric
of Caesarism which belonged to ancient
Rome, she would reach her Sedan also.
The passage excited loud cheers and cries
of bravo ; bnt tho orator did not proceed
to sympathise with all the prejudices of
his hearers in tbis matter, lie emphati
cally declared that the transfer ot Alsace
and Lorraine waa a secondary ques
tion. Ha confessed his own igno
rance about the condition and feeling of
those two provinces and that of hia coun
trymen ; and, whilo hoping that they
might remain French, protested against
tho theory that their loss would impair
the greatness or mar the future of France.
He recalled tho fact that once nearly every
Englishman thought that it was necessary
to bold Calais as a pistol at the head of
Franco; and Queon Mary said that when
she died the name of that town would bo
found engraved upon her heart. Yet
what Englishman now wished for Calais 7
Not only, he maintained, would the loss of
Lorraine and Alsaco not reduce Franco to
a secondary r.mk, but that loss could not
prevent tbe allianco botween the French
and German peoples which was inevitable.''
An Eventful Experience.—The pay
master, George 11. Reid, aud first assistant
engineer, John J. Ryan, of the wrecked
Saginaw, whose names were published
recently among tho list of officers of that
vessel left on Ocean Island, Pacific ocean,
in a destitute condition, are natives of
Philadelphia. Mr. Ryan has made four
eventful escapes from death since 1863, at
which time a companion was killed beside
him by a collision while returning from
tho defence of that State frun the Cbam
bersburg invasion. Afterwards, by the
bursting of a turret gun in a monitor, Mr.
Ryan only escaped out of three men work
ing it. This gentleman was one of the
survivors of the Patapsco, blown np by a
rebel torpedo in Charleston harbor. On
this occasion, though escaping death by
the explosion, he nearly met a watery
grave before being picked up by a boat
from another vessel, as when rescued he
was nearly exhausted. Had he retired to
bed immediately after bring relieved from
duty, he would have been lost, aa all who
were below met a sudden death.
An Accident and Fatal Result.—An
accident occurred last week to Mr. Thomas
B. Wood, living about three miles from
Winchester, on the Berryville pike, which
resulted fatally. It appears that he was
trying a new axe on a piece of wood, and.
while so doing, the axe glanced and struck
his leg about tho ankle joint, cutting it so
severely as to sever a» artery. Surgical
assistance was called, tho hemorrhage from
the artery stopped, and the wound dressed.
Other medical aid was consulted, who de
clared that amputation was necessary to
sava Mr. VV . life. Ho refused to let the
operation be performed, and in a few days
lockjaw set in, which killed him.— Clarke
A recent inquest in London affords a re
markable illustration of the lengths to
which vanity will carry a woman A do
mestic servant died suddenly. The doctor
could not account for death, and made a
post mortem examination, which showed
that the stomach had been reduced to the
size of a baby's, and the heart pushed out
of its proper piace, through tight lacing.
The coroner, a medical mau of great ex
perience, had never Been so aggravated a
case of the sort.
A story, attributed to Wendell Phillips,
is told to the effect that he went one Sun
day to a fashionable Gotham church in
company with a colored man. Several of
the pew-holders wished to eject tho Mela
nit.; in spite ot Phillips's assurance that he
was a gentleman by birth, breeding and
education. They wero all inexorable until
tho orator declared his companion to* be
worth $1,000,000, when all the New
Yorkers at once clamored for an introduc
On the battle-field of Champion Hill,
near Vicksburg, a remarkable peach tree is
growing. The leaves and fruit of this tree
are of a blood-red color. The causo of thia
phenomenon is romantically ascribed to
the fact that during the battle mentioned,
a General Tighlman was killed, and that
his blood drenched the soil upon which the
tree subsequently grew.
A woman at Oberlio, Ohio, collected
money for tho soldiers' orphans and used
it to buy a bonnet. Shu said orphans,

without bread, but women must have bon
