A special dispatch to the Boston Post desoribes
the case thus: "Messrs. EVAXS and CHAEFEE, who
have been here since last summer, as Senators
elect from Colorado, were examined before the Ju?
diciary Committee, a day or two ago, o'h the' im?
peachment question. They testified substantially
that af ber the Colorado admission bill had passed
both Houses last session, and while in the hands
of the President, that officer made overtures to
them with a view to ascertain whether, in the event
of his approval of the bill they would sustain his
restoration policy. Hon. EDMUND COOPER, then
acting Private Secretary of the President, was sub?
sequently called and examined with reference to
^ho matter sworn to by EVANS and CHAFFEE. He
produced an original letter written by those gentle?
men to the President, dated prior to the time of
' the all aged overtures, promising that if he would
sign the bill in question they would sustain his
policy As the President has twice vetoed the bill
the evidence of Mr. COOPER is unquestionable, and
proves that instead of the Executive having made
overtures to these Colorado Senators, they actually
made a most culpable proposition to him, which
he, of course, disregarded.'"
Prof. LOOMIS, of Yale College, .says that tho
averago temperature in the month of February
was seven degrees higher than the averasre of the
samo month for eighty years, and tVat it counter?
balanced tho unusual coldness of December and
January, so that tho Winter, on tho.whole, has
been an average ono, and Spring opens with no
back accounts to make up.
An unfortunate collision occurred on the Alaba?
ma and Florida Railroad on Monday last, resulting
in the death of au engineer (Mr. SCOTT), and a fire?
man. Mr. RICHARDSON, the firemen of the train,
was so complotoly destroyed by fire, that there
was scarcely any trace of him left.
ARE. THE JUDGMENTS OF THE COURTS RENDERED
DUBING THE LATE CONFEDERACY VALID?-The
Supreme Court of Louisiana having rendered a de?
cision on the 4th inst., declaring the acts of tho
Legislature of 1861, organized under the act of
secession of the State, illegal and void, it was pre?
sumed, upon tho same ground, that tho proceed?
ings of the courts of the State, during the same
period, were also null and void.
To test the question, Hon. Alfred Hennen yes?
terday made a motion before the Supreme Court to
reinstate a case upon the docket which had already
bcon docidod by tho Supremo Court of 1861. Tho
court took the motion under advisement.
li Mich a decision wero to bo maintained, it
would not only unsettle tho jurisprudence of our
-State, but there would be no titlo to millions and
millions of property which has been passed upon
by th-3 courts.
Wo aro enabled to state, however, extrajudicially,
that our people may not have any apprehensions on
this subject, that tho question bas already been
decided by the present Supreme Court, in the caso
of Cannon BS.White, afc the November term of 1865,
in which tho court then hold, that tho ordinance of
seces sion boing an absolute nullity, produced no le?
gal effect, and consequently the Supremo Court was
aiot affected or changed^ its passage. This deci?
sion ur?i :je found reported in full m another col?
umn, under the head of the Judiciary, and will bo
found of great interest at this time.-New Orleans

[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DAILY NE wal
TH? ARRIVING AND DEPARTING CONGRESS.
WASHINGTON, March 6.-The Thirty-ninth Con
gross has departed so silently and with so little
ado, that it is hard ?o believe that the Fortieth in
succession^ cot of the same personnel and infamy.
It is only the-fact that night sessions have sudden?
ly ceased, and that daily adjournments occur be?
fore nightfall in both Houses, that induces the
realization that there aro other and new hands at
the legislative bellows. Yes, there is one other
and very essential striking feature of the new
House-its physiognomy. On the Democratic-side
it is somewhat improved by the induction of such
men as JAS. BROOKS, FERNANDO WOOD and JNO.
MORRISSE?-for the latter gentleman, whatever
the sneers that have prevailed against him, is, qf
a verity, a credit to the physique of tho body repre?
sentative. He is by all odds the best observed
man in the Chamber, since his entree, and keeps
his acquaintances in constant requisition for his
identification with the fair sex.
MORRISSEY TN THE REPRESENTATIVE "MEX."
Inasmuch as Queen ANNE found "Richard" "a
marvellous proper man,! in spite of the^ fact that
he was cheated most foully of "dissembling na?
ture," it is not rema] kable that most of the fair
and fashionable dames of Washington discover in
the broad, rotund girth and compact limb of the
ex-hero of the prize ring much to admire and
study. Nay, more, if she be a maiden, to wish
that "Heaven had made her such a man." MOR?
RISSEY is garbed with unexceptional care to the
proprieties of his position. Always in'broadcloth
and finest linen, he comports himself both to and
from the representative chamber-aye, until his
lodgings at WILLARD'S free him from the gaping
eyes of tho crowd-like a dignified and trustful
guardian of the public weal, satisfied of the way
in which duty hos, and following it with an honest
intent to desorve well of his constituents. As he
stood forth with the New York delegation to take
the oath of membership, the ladies above and be?
low (by courtesy) on the floor and in the galleries,
marvelled greatly that the upraised hand, which
had "countered" on the "nob" of so many aspi?
rant for the "bott" with terrific execution, should
be so small and shapely. Indeed, every word and
gesture of the man is remarked and commented
upon by the gay leaders of the "ton," as though
he were still the god of the "ring," and not in re?
duce1' circumstances and membership of Congress.
FERNANDO WOOD ,
Next to his colleague above described is, the main
wonderment of Congressional lookers-on. Of sleek,
soft and sedate presence,'an unfathomable, imper?
turbable air; decidedly distingue in salutation and
converse, and the keeper of his own counsel, be?
yond all K^ndishments of those who may presume
to "puriTj,"--Mr. WOOD is pre-eminently a striking
figure, and engaging in manner and word. As if
by common consent, the judgment of spectators
was invariably biased and governed by a compari?
son of Mr. WOOD with BEN BUTLER, as thoy ap?
peared on the convocation of the Fortieth Con?
gress yesterday. The former, of an his Democratic
fellows, seemed singled out to do battle in all the
coming jousts incident to representative warfare
with his beastliness, BEN BUTLER. And common
consent, likewise, had to acknowledge that the
slim, vigilant and deliberate Now Yorker seemed
equal to his antagonist, and would piove more
than equal to the fray if allowed fair play, and the
privilege of matching brain against brain, with an
honest inclination upon the part of tho House to
Let the "best man win."
Fat, flabby and flustered, moved vain-gloriously
From one part of the chamber to another during
the* inaugural ceremonies of yesterday, with an
evident desire to display bis heroic person to the
view of even those most remote from a command?
ing view of the House.
Bald-headed, fussy, and with a certain appea?
rance of being cold and clammy to the touch, BUT?
LER remains pretty much the same detestable
thing Louisianians knew him to be at New Orleans,
?nd such as all honest, observing men know him
it present the country over. He relies upon a deal
jf.presumption and masterly iniquity to cany him
through whatever crisis he may choose to inaugu?
rate. His faith ia badly founded, and won't carry him
through the issues of the initiation of such emer?
gencies. The cunning that led to an attachment
}f a Lowell Factory wheel, in urging the claims of
m employee for some trifling amount-not as one
2volution of the water power in comparison with
?he amount in judgment,-will not suffice to carry
the high hand of impeachment, though evens
greater than the legist of Lowell stood in BEN BUT?
LER'S shoes. However, ho starts in good hopo,
md will do muoh ero tho expiration of the Fortieth
Congress to mark himself for a niche in history,
dbeit, tho biography will bo hideous, and -'.ho lifo
replete with ?'moral" for the youth of all time.
THE "SOUTHERN LOYALISTS,"
so called, have been looking unutterable things
;hese several days past, and probably relieved
?hemselves in a very considerable degree this af
arnoon by a caucus which they held in one of the
parlors of WILLARD'S. The council was atrictly
private,and is said to be pregnant, with vast issues
concerning the fate of the South, as viewed under
the passage of the late Bill for establishing mili?
tary government in that section. It is significant,
however, (bat the loyalists do not intend any overt
ict upon their own recognizance. ThiBis estab?
lished by the fact that MICHAEL HAHN, DURANT,
md others, who figured so extensively and hazard
jusly in the revolutionary convention of New Or?
leans last summer, declined upon this occasion to
have anything io do with actual movements in any
State of the South, under the present Militia Bill,
Dr any other that might be adopted by Congress.
HAHN declared for bis part that he had had quite
enough of conventions, and riots incident thereto,
and promised himself that he would forever hold
aloof from all scenes that looked to political con?
tention of a sanguinary character. Beyond this
the attitude of the canons could not be learned.
Our New York Letter.
[FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORE, March 6.-Your readers will, remem?
ber that, in a former letter, in which I gave an ac?
count of tho performance of the comedy of "Mar?
ried Life," by a company of amateurs composed
exclusively of Carolinians, I stated that it was in
contemplation to produce the piece in public for
the benefit of the Ladies' Southern Relief Fund in
this city; meanwhile a lotter has been received
from ono of the managers of the Ladies' Mutual
Aid Association of your city, in which is urged in
an eloquent appeal the advisability of getting up
the entertainment for the benefit of tho last named
sooiety, which ?B represented to be in great need
of fonds. This appeal to the hearts of Charles
tonians could not pass unheeded, and I am pleased
to record that, unless some unforeseen obstacle
should intorvono, tho play will bo performed in
about two weeks from this time, and tho proceeds
duly forwarded to tho President ot thc Charleston
LEONARD W. JEROME has kindly and generously
placed his private theatre at the disposal of tho
amateurs, which enables them to cany out their
praiseworthy and charitable undertaking without
subjecting themselves to the unpleasantness of
appearing in a public theatre or hall. JEROME'S
theatre ?B the moat tastefully constructed place of
tho kind in this country; yet, as it eau only seat
three hundred and fifty persons, it cannot be ex?
pected that tho receipts will bo as large as could
bo desired; nevertheless it is hoped, and confident?
ly expected, that a respectable sum will bo real?
ized; and bo it large or small, the ladies and gen?
tlemen are confident that the people of Charleston
will appreciate the motive that prompts them to
lend a helping hand in tho good canso.
A meeting of such of tho citizens of New York
as are interested in the 6uccessfur"passage of tho
bankrupt law was held at tho Astor House last
night, and a subscription hst was opened for tho
purpose of dofraying tho expenses attendant on
its passage-about five thousand dollars are still
unpaid, but it is probable that this amount will
soon be raised. It would seem that the law re?
quired to be greased considerably ero it could get
through, and that the grease has not all been paid
Tho unreasonable and unmerciful extortion prac?
ticed by tho legions of pawnbrokers who infest
this city, has increased so much of late that a
number of philanthropic gentlemen have inter?
ested themselves in the affair for the purpose of
I insuring legal interference. Tho law allows the
CHARLESTON, S. C
pawnbrokers to charge interest at the rate of
twenty-five per cent, per annum, but many of these
human leeches charge five hundred per cent., and
some of them at rates that would amount to ten
thousand per cent, per annum. A case has been
cited where a poor widow has been in tho habit of
pawning a dress every Monday morning, receiv?
ing two dollars and a half, and redeeming it on the
following Saturday, paying thirty cents interest;
that is about twelve per cent, tor five days, or
nearly one thousand per cent, per annum. To
make matters still worse, a regularly organized
band of sneak thieves hang around the pawnbro?
kers establishments and rob children of the petty
amounts received from the leeches, for ^oftentimes
are children sent by their mothers to pawn even
their wearing apparel and pieces of rude furniture
for a few pennies with which to purchase bread to
,save them from starvation, and these children are
robbed by the sneak thieves.
A Park is to be constructed in Brooklyn which,
it is said, will eclipse (?) the Central Park here in
beauty though not in dimensions. It is to be
called "Prospect Park," and will undoubtedly be a
magnificent pleasure ground. I doubt, however, if
there are good prospects of its successfully ex?
celling our great American Bois de Boulogne.
Twenty-five hundred workmen will be employed on
the new park in a few days, and will be kept at
work for a length of time. In the centre of the
grounds there will be a magnificent fountain
throwing a jet to the height of sixty feet, and it
will be kept playing constantly, and brilliantly
iUuminated at night.
The newspapers are again engaged in the dis?
cussion of the merits and demerits of the over?
ground, under-ground and on-the-ground railroad
tracks, what it is proposed to run over, under and
on Broadway. It is now urged that, as either the
over-ground or under-ground tracks will take a
very long time to construct, that we should first do
away with the stages entirely, and try the effects
of an on-the-ground track through the great
thoroughfare. It is then coolly suggested that if
it be found that the thing will not do, that the
track can then be taken up again, and one of -the
other planB be tried. This would certainly put
money in somebody's purse, should no other ad?
vantage accrue. In such job contracts, kissing
always goes by favors here, officials have to be
bribed heavy, and there is a vast quantity of
greenback greasing to be done; hence it is that
neither of tho three projects maybe carried out for
some time y?t.

Modern Languages in Charleston College.
Tethe Editor of die Daily News :
.Mpirit in favor of a chair of modern languages
having been awakened in the Charleston college,
or rather in those who have its care and manage?
ment in keeping, sufficient to induce on the port
of City Council considerations for an appropria?
tion to support it, we have deemed it pertinent to
that progressive and important end to ventilate
our views, especially in reference thereto. lu the
first place, it is to be sincerely hoped that that
appropriation will be made for the establishment
of chairs of modern languages instead of a
chair; for it must be apparent to every compre?
hensive and enlightened mind, unbiassed by
favoritism, or personal regard, that there is no in?
dividual, however eminent his attainments, who
possesses within himself all those requisites for
instilling two different tongues as they should be,
in accordance with those nice and philosophical
differences comprehended in their distinctive or?
Whore can bo found, unless in the^debna of fogy
ism, a mon who con instruct in the French and
Gorman tongues, capable of giving to the ear of
the student those nice distinctions in pronuncia?
tion, accent and intonation, which are the bases
upon which thoroughness rests. Shall we never,
in this community, be guided by the light of wis?
dom burning beyond our limits, where experience
has garnered facts that are indisputable? Shall
we always loan to defunct and narrow minded
mental economy, which "takes in at the spigot and
lets out at the bung?" Why not then, gentlemen
of the City Council, in making youAppropriation
for the support of modern languages, -have the
Bill providing therefor so constructed that each
branch, or language rather, BhoU have its tested
and competent head ? so that our sons, when they
return from tneir educational courses, will know
something definite about what they have been
We flattered ourself that in dividing the profes?
sorship of languages in the High School a prece?
dent hod been established, but our serious alarm
has been excited lest Council shall appropriate for
a Chair of Modern Languages in the College,'with
the ill-founded hope, if hope were ever entertained
in the particular, to find a universal genius to fill
it. Under a new regime of enlightenment, let ns
be very guarded in the education of our common
wards, and see that they have the advantages that
they have a right to expect, so distributed, so care?
fully administered, so as to be beyond any eflete
philosophy, sentiment of gratitude or meek ac?
quiescence of fitness.
Gentlemon of the City Council, we call upon you
as the custodians of an important matter, to do jus?
tice to the education of our children, and see that
when our finances are enlisted in any scheme of
progress, that they properly respond. Recollect
that the universal genius idea and ita accompany?
ing fungi are of tho past, if they ever were/which
we heartily dispute and deny. FR ANC AIS.
The Condition of thc Country.
To the Editor of Vie CJiarleslon News : %
The following letter was received fromjfe gfmt$?
man who passed some fifteen years oijhis early
fife in the Southern States, has had for many years
intimate relations ^fr t?p:South, is at this time a
large holder,of Southern securities, and fully iden?
tified with our prosperity.
From the circle in which he moves his means of
information are of the most reliable character, and
his ability to form proper conclusions, and his sin?
cerity in declaring them, beyond question.
I, however, think him in error as to those gen?
tlemen who are disfranchised by the constitutional
amendment opposing a settlement of the issue.
The unflinching integrity and devotion of the
representativo men of South Carolina can never be
impared by feelings of self-interest.
WM. S. HASTIE.
CHARLESTON, March 9th, 1867.
NEW TOBE, March 3,1867.
FRIEND HASTIE : The die is cast; the bill for the '
military government of ten Stated of this Union
hes become a law. A more arbitrary, unconstitu?
tional measuro has never before been enacted in j
thia republic, and will cause all pure patriots to
tremble for the future of their beloved country.
Insanity rules the hour both with the people and
their riders, to whom thoy have confided their in?
terests. No good will result by further opposition
to either. Fanaticism must run ita course, but in
timo I trust to the sober second thought of the
groat mass of tho voters of the country for the
remedy. This process is slow but sure-all we can
do is to acquiesce in tho lawa of the land until the
same process which mado will repeal .them.
The question now comos up, what will the South
do ? If they accept the amendment to the Consti?
tution they can at once resume their position in
tho Government, bo represented in both Houses of
Congress, aid in bringing about more conservative
legislation, and secure in time all the rights
to whioh they are entitled as free and independent
I laiow the terms are harsh and disagreeable to
tho people of the South, and their adoption will be
political death to the leaders, depriving them of
the power to hold office or P. unto vote. These
mon will oppose tho measure. Admit they do, are
there not thousands of men in the Southern States
who aro as honest, as trustworthy, as capable of
properly representing their section in Congress or
; elsewhere, us any who havo preceded them-men
t who, having hold no public office, no disability
j would attach, and in whom tho people ^ould have
Benito the prcsont requirements of TCongrees,
and whore are you?
You may think a military government preferable
to tho mortifying conditions demanded for repre?
sentation ; perhaps it is so, but a military govern?
ment it only the first step in tlicprogramm e. Unless
the signB of the times aro greatly misunderstood,
a failure to accept what is now offered, without de?
lay, will bo followed by further legislation, looking
toward confiscation of (so-called) rebel property,
going behind all the pardons and restorations
inado by thc President. How searching this may
be, cannot now be known, but there is no doubt
it will reach all who are now excepted in the Con?
stitutional Amendment-and the class who are
A, MONDAY MORNING-,
now only snap end ed during tthe pleasure of Con?
gress, will be forever deborredfrom taking part in
che Government. . .
South Carolina was the first to go off; I would
like to see her the first to return. Her people
wore among the first, to accept the condition of
events which followed the close of the war. She
attempted to destroy the Union, and failed. Now
as promptly let her accept the conditions for her
full return. Sooner or later il will have lo be done;
and the present is a better time than to await the
The parly in power wi? never go back, li not

I have written freely my thoughts as they oc?
curred to me after reading the proceedings of
Congress yesterday, and have stated what I be?
lieve will follow.
DISASTER ON BLACK EIVEB-We regret to learn
that Capt. J. F. Carraway, of this District," had the
misfortune to lose his boat and nearly all the
freight it contained on a recent trip from George?
town to Black Mingo. It appears that the boat
was in tide water, and a heavy blow coming up it
was capsized and sunk. We understand that a
large quantity of corn and merchandise was lost.
SALE DAY TN GREENVILLE.-Last Monday the
Sheriff sold several tracts of land at very low prices
-one tract, within a mile and a quarter of the
Court House, 240 acres, with dwelling and improve?
ments, sold for $2000, bought by the judgment
creditor; tract two miles distant from Court Houso,
160 acres, sold for $200; 28 acres, 13 miles from
town, and in wood, sold for $150. Mules and other
moveable property sold at fairer prices. When
more judgments accumulate over the people, there
will be still greater sacrifices of property enforced
by the State of South Carolina upon her ruined
THE FAIR FOB THE COLORED. PERSONS.-AA we
announced last week'the Ladies' Fair was opened
on Friday night for colored persons exclusively.
The room was crowded with an orderly and well
behaved throng, who enjoyed to the utmost the
privilege accorded. Tho receipts of tho evening
were over three hundred dollars, and we believe
that the Baptist Church has realized from the
series of Fairs a net amount of about seventeen
hundred dollars. Without raming or the usual
clo Bin g auction, the Btook remaining on hand at the
close was next to nothing. Perhaps no Fait was
ever before BO completely successful in disposing
of all its stock without resorting to questionable
methods for that purpose-Greenville Moun?
FUBMAN UNTVEBSIT?.-We have received from
some unknown friend a Catalogue of the Faculty,
Trustees and Students of the Funnan University.
The institution is in successful operation, having
for the year 1866, about 140 students, under a very
LUSUEI NATURS.-We have seen a curiosity at the
hat establishment of John M. Holbrook, on Whit >
hall s ti eet. We can only describe it as a monstros?
ity in the shape of a kid, bom with eight, legs,
three ears, one head and two eyes, and is neither
male nor fdmale. The skin is stuffed, and the
wonderful freak may bo seen at the above place
just as it appeared while living.-Atlanta Jmedi
FIRE" IN LAGBASOE.-From the Beporter, we
lSarn that a disastrous fire occurred in LaGrange,
on the morning of the 7th. That Journal, of the
We, this morning, have to record still another
fire, which occurred in this place on yesterday
morning between 5 and 6 o'clock, which consumed
two wooden buildings on the south side of the
square. One of them, the property of John L.
Sterling, was a large structure, formerly used as a
carriage repository, but which had not been used
since the war, except temporarily as a carpenter's
workshop. The other, aborning the Sims TI? .use,
was the property of Dr. Litttle, in which in?
ternal revenue office was kept, up stairs. The
lower story was ocoupied by Mrs. John F.Doug?

How NEWSPAPERS ARE CONFISCATED TN FRANCE,- I
"Under the role of Napoleon, newspapers have always
been regarded as bombshells that may blowup the
Empire. Accordingly, whenever a public journal
printed anything unpleasant to the Emperor, it
was seized, and the person to whom it was sent
and the agent who meant to sell it never saw a
copy of the offensive number. The Journal des
D?bats recently ventured to print', an exposure of
the systematic confiscation of English, Belgian
and German papers, which has been carried on un?
interruptedly in France for tho last fifteen years.
The Augsburg Gazette and the London Saturday
Beview nave been the chief Bufferers. The Ind??
pendance Beige has been excluded for whole
months at & time.
The Journal de Geneve, which is daily disM-'
buted at Lyons, is not suffered to reach its Paris
subscribers on an average more than once a week.
Punch is repeatedly deemed too strong for France,
and nine out of every ten numbers are confiscated,
and even the Illustrated London News'was kept
back for twenty-four hours m January onaccount
of an engraving of the night fete of the Skating
Club. A Spanish paper, written in French-La
BidasBoa-having been seized for several months'
runnirg, on account of its political summary, late?
ly replaced the ofi^nding article by a woodcut re?
presenting the good ship Bidassoa "in quarantine
before Bayonne." The American papers, when
they are not seized, are generally detained for
MEMOIRS OP MADAME BEOAMTER.-The Memoirs
and Correspondence of Madame Becamier, by her
niece, Madame Lenormant, published in Paris in
1859, have been translated for the first time and
are about to be published by a Boston house.
These memoirs record the history of a woman who
was in many ways remarkable, and whose career
is full of interest, both on account of her own
character and experiences and the eminent persons
who were her friends, admirers and lovers.
Madame Becamier held her undisputed and mar?
vellous sway over men and women afike, by her
exe- eding loveliness of person, her kindness of
heart, her good sense and exquisite" tact-a sway
that was recognized when she was' suffering from
reverses of fortune, as well AS when she was enjoy?
ing the greatest prosperity. Perhaps no biography
was ever written ni which there are anecdotes and
glimpses of so many and such widely differing
characters as in these memoirs. Covering a period
of more than half a century, full of rapid and
strange changes, Madamer'Becamier's "Ufe" has a
historic value, and the letters addressed to her
take us behind the scenes and enable us to under?
stand not a little of the intrigues that governed
and the actors who took part in the political
struggles of France and Europo. Tho chief value
of the volume will be found in its autobiographical
portions and its neb. and diversified correspond?
AN ETHNOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION.-Tho Moscow
committee for tho Ethnographic Exhibition, to be
held in the ancient capital of Russia next fall, is
actively engaged in collecting spbuimens of nation?
al dresses, implements and curiosities, not only
from allports of Bussia,.but also from neighbor
?ag countries. Tho exhibition is to .comprise all
he various tribes of Sclavonic descent, and, from
ar political point of view, .will: be no; leas Austrian
and Turkish than Russian. Even the Prussian
Sclavonians will not be forgotten, nor the few for?
lorn Yindians. the last remnant of the once numer?
ous aboriginals of Brandenburg and Saxony.
The Pall Mall Gazette says : "Our readers will
be rather startled to learn that a now edition of
Winklemann's 'Allegory of Art,' which was pub?
lished io 1766, is about to appear, prepared by the
author himself. The fact is chat his own largo pa?
per copy, covered with a vast number of correc?
tions, additions, &c. on almost every page, was
discovered sometime ago in the Albany Library, of
which he was keeper. He was, as will bo remem?
bered, murdered at Trieste, on hid way back to
Germany, for \he sake of some antique gold coins
he happened to have with him. His death pre?
vented his carrying this carefully prepared new
edition through the press, and its very existence
was unknown. The new eaitor, Dr. Cresset, of
Leipsio, intends to add several hitherto unprinted
and partly unknown letters by tho great archeeolo
gist, and an Italian one to Mongs, in Madrid, inclu?
ding several particulars (wanting tn Eoaefcti) re?
garding his last moments, which were obtained
from on eyewitness, and woro lately found among
the papers of the Avvocato Carlo Fea."
THE EIGHT INSTRUCTION FOR PEASANTS.-In
uno laBt M. Chanchard reported to the French
egislature upon the subject of primary instruction
in the departments of France. He directed atten?
tion to the fact that the law of 1850 had placed
agriculture upon the hst of primary studio?, ex?
plaining that by this wad intended simply instruc?
tion in tho most olbmentary, undoubted and prac?
tical facts of that science. But some doubts have
been entertained as to the propriety of this action.
The re can be none, thinks AL Chanchard, if for ag?
riculture wo substituto gardening. Almost every
peasant's cottage lias a tow acroaof ground around
it, which be calla his garden ; but it is commonly a
tangle of poor herbs, and poorer trees. Let lie
peaaant's children bo taught at the primary school
how to prepare the ground, how to sow, how to
raise good vegdfKbleB, how to plant and trim, and*
graft trees, and it is contended that the cottages
will become comfortable and pleasant homes,
where the peasants will be content to stay, instead
of crowding, as they now do, to the great towns.
THE BIBLE FOR CENTRAL AFRICA_Rev. Mr.
BobB", missionary of tho United Presbyterian
Church at Old Calabar, has translated tho Old
Testament into the Elik language; the New Tes?
tament had been previously translated by tho Bev.
Mr. Golding, a brothor miusionary. The National
Bible Society of Scotland has undertaken to have
the whole stereotyped, printed and bound. Great
care has been exercised in securing accuracy.
Blelock & Co., of Now York, publish a novel by
a Southern lady whose pseudonym is "Fadette,"
and tho title of her book "IngemiBOO." "Inge
misco" by "Fadette" con/cys no clear idea of tho
character of the work, and the mystery of misery
is deepened by the mournful dedication, which
reads thuB : "Will my kinsman, Bev. Dr. Palmer,
of Now Orleans, allow me gratefully to inscribe to
him a dream of travel and romance, dreamed in
tho rkght-watcbes of our country, when 'Ingc
misco,' not 'All's wollj' MRS the burden of -the
watchman's cry ?"
Sir Edwin Landseer's long expected lions have at
last been completed. Two of them have been
placed on their pedestal at the base of Nelson's
column in London. A boarding has been erected
for their temporary protection, aed they will not
be uncovered until all aro in their places.
MARCH M 1867.
OWLS.-There is a demand for well-trained (.'ani?
mals of this species in our city Tat thia time. The
remarkable facility which they have m turning
their heads round and round, so as to see on ah
sides nearly at the same time, would render them
very valuable in a certain branch of public service.
Br seating one in front and one in the rear o? each
of the street cars, there would be some guarantee
that when a passenger wanted to get on, he or she
would be seen by these big-eyed birds. The only
difficulty would be in training them BO that they
would peek tibe hand of the driver or conductor
whenever they saw a man or woman gesticulating,
or heard them shouting, as it is now necessary to
do in order to stop a car. We hope that this diffi?
culty would be overcome in the course of time, and
it might be as soon, perhaps, as that most incon?
venient and rigid stiffness which now seems to
exist in the necks of those gentlemen to whom the
pnblio are under so many obligations for polite
treatment when once yon have caught their eyes.
But they are now too prone to look straight for?
ward or straight backward, or in some other direc?
tion than the sides of the- streets and corners
where they might expect to see you. When we
have compared the far-seeing vision. and friendly
greetings with which the omnibus drivers, amid
tho chao s of Broadway, New York, welcome the
first symptoms of a desire to take a ride with the
cool mdinerence of these Southern gentlemen, our
feelings have been hurt, and we have wished thoir
necks were more pliable, that they might lavish on
us some of those prolinuuary attentions which are
so much needed in order to enjoy their company.
