SAN FRANCISCO, December 23.
' The city of San Francisco lies, as is known to
most of your readers, ou a succession of steep
hills, which circumstance, while it adonis a mag?
nificent view to those who approach the town
from thc east, across the bay, is of great incon?
venience to its inhabitants, as some of the streets,
especially In the northern portions of thc city,
are most inconvenient of access, both for pedes?
trians and vehicles, and will, owing to the denslty
or population, no doubt remain so, unless the
hopoof one of the city papers that a great Lon?
don fire would enable thc San Franciscans, one of
these days, to remove these uatnral obstacles, is
fulfilled. In some localities not yet so thickly set?
tled, the city authorities arc levelling the streets
by blasting thc rocks; they do this with a strange
disregard ef private property. If a house stands
in thc way, it luis to go ov tumble doini, without
regard to the loss of the owner. I was told that
Bishop Kip thus lost his former residence on Se?
cond street; his house tumbled down, but he got
no damages. There are J number of very hand?
some structures in th" chief business streets of
San Francisco, especially on California, Montgom?
ery, Sacramento and Bush streets, a few as fine
as the commercial f alaces on Broadway, New
York; bnt the dwelling-houses arc externally not
to be compared with thc elegant private resp
dence? of the Eastern cities. They are, for the
most part, of very ordinary size, and, as ipr as
my observation goes, cut up into a numbef^of
rather small rooms; but thoseorthe wealthy are
magnificently furnished. The streets in thc lower
MT businos3*portlon of the city arc, after a rain,
excessively dirty; while np town the winds in dry
weather raise clouds of dust, the like or which I
have never seen. But thc climate is, generally
speaking, very delightful, the thermometer hardly
varying in the shade from TO to 75 degrees, and
the atmosphere is in clear weather so transparent
that objects can bc distinctly seen at almost in?
Opposite to San -Francisco lies Oakland, thc
present land-terminus of the Western Pacific
Railroad, already quite an extensive suburb of
San Francisco, and destined, perhaps, to become
the chief depot of thc inland trade, lt owes its
name to the large number of live-oaks in which
it abounds, trees similar though not entirely like
onr low country live-oaks. v They are not as tall
as the oaks of South Carolina, aud have a smooth
bark somewhat like thc olive trees. Tlie new
University of California will be located at Berke?
ley, a place about three miles to the north of Oak?
land. The site of the university, embracing two
hundred acres of ground, is already handsomely
laid ?nt as a park, the material for thc buildings
is collected, and the chief structures will, it is
hoped, be erected within the next eighteen
months. The first two Carolinians whom I met
were the two Doctors LeContc. both professors,
and the elder, Dr. John LeConte, at thc same time
president of the university. They gave mc a very
warm welcome; their genial faces lit up with, I
believe, sincere pleasure, when they saw this en?
grafted chip of dear o'd South Caroliua stand
unexpectedly before them. Both thc professors,
as well as their families, look wonderfully im?
proved tn health and spirits since their removal
from Columbia and thc fostering care of Messrs.
Neagle ? Co. They live in a handsome house,
snrronnded by a beautiful garden, which they
have rented, furnished, until thc professors
houses at Berkeley will be ready for their recep?
tion. While still warmly attached to thttfiSld
home aud mends in Sonth Carolina, they yet re?
alize to Its full extent the happy change which
they have experienced by their removal to this
free, prosperous and liberal State. The university
contains at present only from forty to fifty grad?
uates; this ls due to the fact that thc faculty were
permitted to organize during this term only the
fourth, or, as wc call lt, tho Freshmen class, the
schools here not having been prepared to
furnish students for more advanced grades.
Higher education is anyhow as yet In
an undeveloped state in California; the only good
schools arc said to bc the Cosmopolitan schools,
which furnish merely a common school educa?
tion, such as the New England States have blessed
our country with. There ls a Latin Grammar
school for boys in San Francisco, kept at the pub?
lic expense, which ls said to be cftlc'.cut, but lt is
the only one of the kind except a few small pri?
vate schools, which g cow up and perish like
mushrooms. Thc people cf San Francisco, even
its wealthiest citizens, with very few exceptions
seem not to care as yet to give to their sons a
higher education than thc common schools af?
ford. They have made their money without
classics and mathematics, said to me a gentleman
of high standing, and they think their sons can
do likewise. Besides most of the richest men live
outside of San Francisco, and dislike to bring
their sons into contact with thc many tempta?
tions of the town. Thus San Francisco is not a
Dromising field Tor academical teachers.
Of other South Carolinians whom I have met
' herc I may mention Mr. J. Frledlandcr, thc grain
king, as he is sometimes called. Dis haudsorac
counting house is at the corner ol California and
Battery streets, par; of a fine block of buildings,
which, uo doubt, belongs to him. Though Mr_
Frledlandcr i3 of course very much occupied, for
thc papers report daily many thousands of sacks
or wheat "consigned to J. Friedlauder," he re?
ceived me and has since treated me with great
kindness, a quality which a stranger docs not
often meet with in a business man of his wealth
and eminence. Mr. Friedlander ls. of course, one
of the most influential men in San Francisco; he
owes this influence not only to his great wealth,
but also, and chiefly, to his unceasing devotlou
to the advancement of the prosperity of both city
and State. He has, however, lately withdrawn
altogether from public airairs, because he has an
insuperable aversion to appearing in public
prints. Another South Carolinian, who has
gathered in California a rich harvest of the golden
fruits of his indomitable energy and industry, is
Dr. H. H. Toland. I presented the letters which
kind friends had famished me with at his. oftlcc.
on Montgomery street. His oillce hours were not
quite closed when 1 called, so that I had an op
portuuity or witnessing how the Doctor does bu?
siness. Thc office occupies an entire floor, con?
tains an apothecary siiop, two waiting rooms
and the Doctor's two private office?. lu one sat
about twenty patients, mostly men, who, one ar?
ter the other, were admitted into the Doctor's
sanctum. After the necessary examination thc
Doctorstcppcd out, wrote a prescription, handed
it to thc patient to bc made up at thc apothe?
cary's, and another patient succeeded. This
went on without ceasing until half-past 5 r. M.,
new comers pouring iii to supply thc vacant seats.
Thc class of men thus attended to seemed to be, in
a great measure, charity patients. In fact, I have
been told that a great portion of the sixteen hours
which the Doctor devotes daily to his profession
is spent on those who need relief without having
thc meaus of paying for it. Dr. Toland inquired
after many of his rriends in his native State, es?
pecially after his distinguished confrere. Dr. Eli
Geddings, whose portrait hangs on the walls of
his study. Dr. Toland's residence, on Jackson
street, is. of course, handsome in every respect.
The Doctor, like many other physicians, is evi?
dently a lover of birds, beasts and reptiles. I ob?
served an aviary with many exotic birds, a beau?
tiful King Charles' spaniel of purest breed, and
-such horses ! six of the finest animals that
San Francisco cont?los stand lu his stables. I
have also had the pleasure of meeting Mr. James
Pringle, one or Mr. Wm. Bull Pringle's younger
sons. Mr. Pringle, who has married thc daugh?
ter of Mr. Butterworth, the president or the New Al
marten Quicksilver Mines, practices law in co
partcrship wiih Iiis elder brother, Edward, who
has long been one of the most esteemed citizens of
San Francisco. Our good old friend, Mr William
Whaler, had kindly furnished mc with a letter of
introduction to Judge Solomon Hcydeufeldt, a
gentleman who studied law with Mr. Whalcy in tho
otllcc of the late Mr. Henry DeSaussure. Judge
Heydenfeldt, also a very wealthy and Influential
gentleman, was once prominent In politics; but
having, ns ho told me, with a smile, "unfortu?
nately'' always cherished sentiments favorable to
the South, where he spent his earlier years, he
had during the war withdrawn from public life,
and never iutends to enter its arena again, but
devotes himself entirely to his extensive, and no
doubt, very remunerative practice. Judge Hey?
denfeldt has, some months ago, had the misfor?
tune of breaking one of his legs, and is therefore, at
present, compelled to use crutches. He spoke with
genial warmth of the pleasant days hespent with
Mr. Wha'.ey In the happy times ol' the past.
Colonel William Blanking, from Charleston, oc?
cupies a very handsome residence at Oakland. I
have not yet had thc pleasure of meeting him.
Mr. Robert Lucas lives at Stockton, between ban
Francisco and Sacramento, and has entered, as I
hear, successfully into the grain trade. Dr. Press
ley, of Williamsburg, practices his profession at
Sulsun, a town en thc Benlcia Road. These are
all thc South Carolinians whom I havo so far met
or heard from. They are all In prosperous cir?
cumstances, and, no doubt, they all deserve it.
But let the reader not con Mude, from the success
of these geutlemen, that all others who come here
will meet with a like good fortune. My opportu?
nities of observation have so far been, of course,
very limited, for I have been here not traite a month ;
but my impression note is, that San Francisco is
a vtry Ann? place to commence in, even with an
amount of means which would establish a busi?
ness man elsewhere. As to farming, there is, no
doubt, an immense amount of rich land never
yet opened by the plough, and which can be
bought at comparatively low prices-but the
means of transportai ion for thc produce, that
is the trouble. 1 read yesterday of a case In the
papers, which Illustrates the dnliculty which thc
farmer meets with in obtaining a fair price for
his produce. The owner of a vineyard and or?
chard, not very far from San Francisco, had sent
two tons of the Qnest grapes and one ton of good
"eating apples" by rall to San Francisco, and had
consigned them to a commission merchant for
sale. Thc latter sold the fruit at wholesale, and
returned to thc grower an account of sale
amounting to thirty-six dollars, from which thc
latter had to deduct twenty dollars for the ex.
pense of gathering, boxing and railroad charges;
realizing thus sixteen dollars net, while the lot
of fruit put into the commission merchant and
retailer's pockets the handsome sum of one hun?
dred and seventy dollars. Whether the profits from
grain culture and dairy produce arc better, I can?
not tell. A. S.
LATEST FROM DR. LIVIXGSTOXE.
Frolics of his Explorations.
The last foreign mail brings a letter from
Dr. Livingstone, dated ?JIJI, May 30, 1SC!?,
and received by Dr. Kirk, thc English Consul
at Zanzibar, on October 2d. It was published
in the Bombay Gazette of November 20th,
and thence transferred to thc English jour?
Dr. Livingstone complains that lie receives
lillie help from the natives of Ujiji, who, like
the Kllwa traders, arc "balersortho English."
The Zanzibar men, he says, ar* gentlemen,
and trade with honor, bul tho hordes of Kllwa
and Ujiji are engaged in slave-catching forays,
and dread exposure from Livingstone's letters.
Though he is openly on good terms with the
people where he resides, Livingslone can gel
no assistance in procuring carriers for his let?
ters, and when ne scuds out parties to the
coast, they are robbed ol' thc malls. Living?
stone has already failed to receive the differ?
ent cargoes of goods sent up to him from Zan?
zibar, as thc caravans have been stopped and
phi ink-red. It is feared that a mall containing
forty letters, written by him during his slow
recovery from illness, nave been taken from
the carrier. Livingstone says thai- ihe work
remaining to be accomplished by him is to
connect the sources of the Nile discovered by
himself and the Nile of Speke and Baker,
which is from 500 to 700 miles north or Ujiji.
The volume of water which flows north from
latitude 12 degrees is so large, that Living?
stone suspects he has discovered the sources
of thc Congo as well as of thc Nile. Ile has to
follow the eastern linc of drainage down lo
Baker's turning point. Tanganyika and Ba?
ker's Nyigc Chowambe are the saini; waler,
aud the head ol'it is ?100 miles BOUUl of Ujiji.
Thc western and central lines of drainage
converge into an unvisited luke, west or south?
west of Ujiji; and livingstone has to ascertain
whether Its overflow is to the Congo or the
Nile. Thc people of the region mentioned are
called Maiiyenia, and arc reported ro bc can?
nibals. Livingstone says if he coilas out un?
eaten, and is joined by the new mund from
Zanzibar, he will proceed in his explorations.
TU t: DEl'inS OF TUE SEA.
The general bellell' that the bed of the deep
ocean is as far bcueath the reach ol' direct
examination by scientific men as the substance
of the solid earth at the same depths, has been
dissipated by the success of some bohl Eng?
lish investigators in directly exploring thc
depths ol' the sea.
It appears that Professor Thompson and Dr.
Carpenter, with the aid of a now contrivance
for dredging, have succeeded in bringing np at
different times loads ol' nearly hall' a ton ol'
deposits from a depth of fourteen lliousand
feet (or two miles und two-1 birds) below Hie
surface. There are but three or four peaks in
Europe which are higher above tue sea level
tlian the sea level is above the depths Hms ex?
amined. Thc results of this examinai ion bare
not yet been finally embodied in the sciences
on which they bear, but enough has been pub?
lished of them to show that some of thc com?
mon doctrines of geologists ami physiologist
at least need revision. U is staled that al
depths where the pressure Of thc waler is moro
than four "hundred lons to euell square fool,
where thc cold is always below the freezing
point of water at the surface, and where not
one particle of light from the sun or air can

complexity of organization, and willi eyes as
perfect in every respect us those of thc
fishes and reptiles best known to us. An?
other striking discovery is tl Ult these crea?
tures, found in thc limestone mud of to-day,

by geologists iu tho limestone beds ol' Europe,

.'and the discovery that they may actually

Carpenter, -'has done no less ' than
strike al the very root ol' thc customary
assumptions with regard to geological Unie."
Thc New York Evening Post, commenting
upon the testimony thus brought up from the
depths of the sea, expresses the opinion that
this discovery alfords the strongest support to
Sir Charles " Lyell's theory, that thc past

Daddy Cain as a Peacemaker-A General
Burying of thc Hatchet.
EDOEFIELD, January 1.
The new year was ushered in to-day by n
meeting at the Courthouse or the Radical
party. This, of itseir, is certainly nothing new,
hut its general reatures differed materially irom
auy or thc kind heretofore held. The objector
thc meeting was to listen to a Bpeech from Daddy
Cain-senator from Charleston and editor ol the
Missionary Record. RA. Eichelberger presided as
chairman. A committee was appointed to walt
upon the orator of the day and bring him to the
He spoke from the Courthouse steps, for about
an hour and a half. The tone of his speech was
eminently practical and pacific, consisting main?
ly or sound advice to his colored brethren as to
what would subserve their best interest and pro?
mote their progress as good citizens.
He discussed briefly the proceedings er the
Legislature, and whilst he admitted that they
had not done well in some things, claimed that
generally they had done remarkably well under
thc circumstances. He lauded among other
things the homestead law, the land commission
and thc coin-interest law; alleged that lt
was his purpose, and he believe* the pur?
pose or the administration, to promote peace
and harmony in the State; said that he de?
sired that whites and blacks should live together
as rriends; that each had med or thc other, and
that nothing would promote the general welfare
so much as thepeacerul relations of the races.
lt was generally regarded as a good speech, and
calculated lo do thc freedmen more good than
any of the kind that has boen made here since the
war. If all the speakers of his party would speak
in thc same spirit that Cain spoke in here to-day,
lt would at once secure profound and perpetual
peace in the State.
At the conclusion or his speech a series or reso?
lutions declaring the desire or thc meeting to es?
tablish pcacerul relations in the county were
adopted; also resolutions to invite speakers of thc
Democratic party, who might be disposed to do
so, to address thc meeting. A commute was ap?
pointed to extend this invitation, and lu response
General M. C. Butler and General M. W. Gary
went and addressed the meeting. They pre?
mised by saying that they did not address thc
meeting In a political sense, but that they were
perfectly willing to meet the speaker from Charles?
ton in the same liberal spirit which he had ex?
hibited. None desired peace more than they, and
Hie white people generally. They desired to see
the colored race prosperous and happy-sur?
rounded by all the comforts of life, and their chil?
dren enjoying thc blessings of education.
Cain had said that he was willing and desirous
of burying the hatchet, and General Gary in re?
ply said thal he would announce on behalf of thc
white people of the county that they also were
willing to bury the hatchet, and that all men
should beprotectod In the enjoyment or peace and
the pursuit or happiness. The brier speeches or
these gentlemen were well rccclved.and when con?
cluded, on motion or Lawrence Culn, colored,
throe cheers were given ror thc first Democratic
speakers who had declared Tor peace.
THE FIJtST CUINESE.
Three Hundred Chinese Laborers Ar?
rive in St. Louis-Lively Scenes at thc
Depot-Chinese Wages for Working
The first instalment of Chinese laborers for
the south, numbering over three hundred, as al?
ready announced by telegraph, reached St. Louis
on Wednesday last. The Celestials were engaged
to work on the extension or the Houston, Texas,
Central Railroad, and will bc taken to Calvert
and placed on thc sections under construction.
The St. Louis Republican says:
The men are to receive thirty dollars in coin
per month and board themselves. They will get
the same as other railroad hands are getting.
Thc railroad has been paying thirty-nine*dullard
in coin, and even at that rate could not get a
supply, owing to thc scarcity of laborers. Thc
contractors pay for the transportation of the
Chinese to Texas, and all that it may cost them
over twenty dollars to return to San Francisco
after three years' service the contractors agree to
pay. The contract waa made by Colonel R. I'.
Boyce, of Texus, assigning to Geucral Walker
the charge of bringing them through rrom Cali?
fornia. A contract was also made with Headman
Chew Ah Ileung to serve as Interpreter under sal?
ary rrom the contractors. These men have been
several years in California, talk English tolera?
bly, and assisted to build thc Central 1'acillc Rail?
road. For working plantations In thc South as
many Chinese laborers as are needed can be had
from $10 to $12 per mouth, in thc currency of the
country. By contact with the Americans they
have abandoned their superstitious notion that
required their bodies at death to bo transported
to their native country. The party left San Fran?
cisco on Sunday, the 10th, at io o'clock A. M., 300
strong. On tho way about seven or the number
prow faint-hearted, and persuaded by some of
their friends, they remained behind, but the com?
plement was made up by thc addition of eighteen
others, who volunteered and joined thc emi?
gra ul s.
In expectation or seeing thc Celestials, n large
number of people went to thc depot, but, getting
11 red ol' waiting, they gradually dropped away
anti went home. Ampng those present most
anxious to see the visitors was Alla Lee. himself
a native Chinaman, who hus been a resident of
this city twelve years. He first came to Califor?
nia as interpreter for a missionary o' thc Episco?
pal Church among his countrymen. Lee was
horn nt Niugpoo, near Shanghai, can talk twelve
dialects, but since his residence in this city lias
been shorn or his pigtail and Riven up thc pagan?
ism nf his fothers. Ile appeared anxious lo meet his
countrv people und proffer them Borne sound ad?
vice. At a late hour they arrived at the depot,
and the Chinese thronged out on thc platform.
Thev appeared to bc quite small lu stature, their
uges being from twenty-five to thirty. They were
a tew quite young boys, and some three or four
men over forty years old. Most or them carried
long sticks, which arc used ror carrying their
baggage, thc stick being balanced on the should?
er, and thc buggsge being divided and suspended
In front and on thc rear. They have the queue sr
.'pigtail" appendage or twisted hair, in some
cases curled about their hats, and wore a loose
blouse, but with rew exceptions the whole attire
was like that worn by ordinary laborers. Bur.
thc dark almond-shaped eyes and olive-colored
countenance, a whitish hue, tinged with orange
and renulllion, showed the peculiar characteris?
tics of the Chinese race.
On thc platform commenced n violent clamor
when thc baggage was claimed, and the scene
almost beggars description. The confusion was
like Bedlam broke loose. The entire party clus?
tered about the door of the baggage-car, and
continued for a long time to pull, shove mid
squeeze euch other, and chattering, scolding anil
swearing lu broken English, making a din that
was heard several blocks away. It was like the
scramble of unruly children, or the quarrelling
among indians when dividing their nu ions.
The police hovered around, but when told that
this was thc manner of the Celestials, they
thought best not to Interfere. At length two of
the leading men with strong voices, ascended to
the top of the ear, and, commanding some sort
of attention, the baggage was shoved up to them
Hom the door, when they tossed it Into the
crowd, and after each package was tossed about
like a ball for some time, it ut leugth found un
owner. One of the men in charge said that a
similar scene occurred on thc route at each trans?
fer of baggage. He said that at Ogden, two
men had hold of a pan which each churned, and
they pulled and hauled until they torc lt to pieces.
The party were then marched down to the
steamer Mississippi, commanded by Captain Ned
Groen, where they went aboard. The steamer
will leave this evening for New Orleans.
OX BOARD TUE COAT.
A little before 12 o'clock these Chinamen, two
hundred and forty-seven all told, began to arrive
at Hie boat. In appearance, by torchlight, t heir
features seemed more or a cross between the In?
diau omi the Mexican than any thing else. Most
of them wore queues or pigtails, ami. with one
or two exceptions, they were wound around their
heads. Sonic of t deni wore common black Wool
hats, while others wore the regular Chinese straw
har, which very much resembles an old Hutch
straw bread basket. Each or them carried a
bundle-some or them two-in which were done
up their wearing apparel, bedding, kc. lt
ls not assuming too much to say that manv
of these bundles would weigh rrom l.'>0 tu
:;00 pounds; yet they trotted along under this
weight with more case than "barbarians" (us
they call ii?) would under twenty-five pounds.
Their bundles were all wrapt up "in a kind of
matting-the same kind as that which comes
around tea chests or cinnamon bales.- As soon
ns they arrived on board thc boat and were shown
.back to the quarters assigned them, they prepared
for sleep. Their bundles were unrolled, and thc
matting spread out for their beds. The Inner
part of the bundles, of whatever made np, served
as pillows, while coarse blankets and their coats
served as covering. Their rice kettles, or pots,
and what few other primitive utensils they pos?
sess or carry with them, were scattered around
promiscuously, and amid bales and boxes, and
barrels, and a hog or two, they disposed them?
selves to slumber, dreams and rest. All lu all,
t hey are a queer looking set of people-queer in
their ways, queer in their habits, queer in their
language, and may work a queer r?volution In
the labor of this country, the test of which is now
being made in thc West, and, with these two
hundred and forty-seven, 90on to bc tested in the
Attempt to Marder and Rob.
Thc Barnwell Sentinel says :
Thc most daring attempt to rob and murder
that we have ever been called upon to record, oc?
curred at the place of Mr. William Ashley, of this
/district, on thc night of the 2lst ult., the particu?
lars of which have been furnished us by Mr. Ash
Icy himself, who resides about seventeen miles
west of this place. It appears that a negro fellow
by the name of Edmund, formerly the property
of Mr. Ashley, and raised by him, had concocted
a plan to Arc one of his houses, ene and a half
miles from his residence, and then to strew the
lire In thc woods, in order to get him from bis
house, and if this did uot succeed, his intentions
were to go there, enter lt, and kill him and ev^ry
one in it. Luckily for Mr. Ashley, Edmii . "s
scheme was found ont and communicated to mm
by Mr. W. K. Darlington and Robert Dasei,
whereupon immedldate preparations were made
to stop him In his wild career, and for the better
protection of Mr. Ashley.
Six of his neighbors collected, some under the
house, and about 9 o'clock at night he (Edmund)
commenced by (iring the woods and fencing, ex?
pecting Mr. Ashley would call up the hands and
go to arrest the flumes. Mr. A. Bailey and Messrs.
P. S. and Raymond Owens secreted themselves
under the house. About one hour after thc alarm
was given, and when he thought all safe, Edmund
and one or two more came. Edmund then en?
tered thc house, armed with a club axe and flre
barrcl pistol. Mr. It. C. Ashley was sitting about
the middle of the house, and as he entered he
gave him the contents of one barrel of his gun,
containing fifteen buckshot, in his breast. He
run about one hundred and fifty yards and fell
dead, leaving his axe akeut fifty yards from where
he was shot, but held on to his pistol to thc last,
and a bag which ho had provided himself with for
thc purpose, ef carrying off Mr. Ashley's gold.
Edmundos accomplices made their escape, and lt
is much to be regretted, as they came with Ulm to
thc house, that each of them did not share the
same fate. The plan was to kill and rob Mr. wm.
Ashley first, then to kill Mike Sanders and Peyton
Ashley (colored men,) burn lt. C. Ashley's gin
house, and then leave for Southwestern Georgia.

-"Medora Leigh: A Diary and Autobiography"
is the title of a book to bc edited by Charles Mac?
kay and published by Bentley, of London. The
veteran publisher recently telegraphed to Mrs
Stowe an urgent request that she would postpone
the publication ot her book until she should have
had an opportunity of correcting her impression
aud of learning thc origin of thc slanderous
charge of Incest brought against Lord Byron and
lils half-sister, the Hon. Mrs. Leigh. Medora
Leigh was thc fourth daughter of Mrs. Leigh. At
thc agc of fifteen, while living with her eldest
sister, thc wife of "thc scoundrel" Trevanlon, she
was seduced by her sister's husband, who, arter
separating from his wire, carried Medora to the
south of France. There the seducer and his victim
lived together for several years before. In order
to retain his hold upon her, Trevanlon invented
and told her the horrible story that Lord Byron was
her father. This 6tory Medora communicated in
a reproachful letter to her mother, who never re?
plied to lt. Lady Byron subsequently heard or
thc story, hunted up Medora and brought her
home, but afterwards, In one of her freaks, sent
her away. Such, according to this "Diary and
Autobiography," which, brief and meagre as lt ls,
Mr. Bentley believes to be authentic, ls the story
which crazed Lady Byron and which, repeated by
Mi's. Stowe, has scandalized thc world. Perhaps
Mrs. Stowe will tell us something more about
Medora Leigh in her forthcoming volume.
-A curious cause has just been decided by the
Civil Tribunal of Orleans, France. A jeweller,
named dillon, sued the cx-Quceu Isabella, ol
Spain, thc French Minister of the Interior, and H.
R. H. i he Inranta Isabella Ferdinanda dc Bonrbon,
the Queen's sister-in-law, for the value of a set
of pearls and amethysts and other Jewels supplied
to thc last named princess, dillon declared
that if he had been induced to give her credit
lt was because, when she went to Orleans to
place her son at a seminary and her daughters in
a convent, the Prefect ot the Department, by or.
der or the Minister or thc Interior, lodged her in
his house, and introduced her to thc great loc;;:
runclionariea, who vied with each other in
giving balls and festivals in her honor. As
she could not go to these without jewels, and
had forgotten to bring her own, she ad?
dressed herself to M. Gillion. Part of the
jewels ordered were no: ready when her Royal
Highness left Orleans, and were forwarded to the
Spanish Consul at Bayonne, by whom they were
transmitted to thc Spanish Minister or Foreign
Affairs by that functionary's express order. Such
were thc grounds of the action brought against
tim cx-(?iiccn and thc French Minister of thc In?
terior. The tribunal, however, did not hold them
to he liable, mut non-suiled dillon with costs so
far as they Were concerned, on the other hand,
it condemned lier Royal Highness thc Infanta to
pay thc sum claimed, with Interest and costs.
But as (he said Infanta was declared, In thc course
of thc trial, to be perfectly insolvent and enor?
mously in debt, and possessed only ora yearly al
Iowa ?ice made n? her lu her capacity of a Spanish
Princess, ami which could not be attached, the
Orleans jeweller's chances of reimbursement ap?
pear tit be ol' the smallest, especially as lt must bc
considered inure than doubtful whether the new
Spanish government will continue to pav th : pen?
siona of thc ex-Koj'al family.

"pm- LET COMMON SENSE DECIDE.
What is the rational mode of procedure in cases of
general debility and nervous prostration ? Does
not reason tell us that Judicious stimulation is re?
quired 1 To resort to violent purgation in such a
case is as absurd as lt would be to bleed a starv?
ing man.. Yet lt ls done every day, Yes, this
stupid and unpliilosophical practice is continued
in the teeth or thc GREAT FACT that physical weak?
ness, with all the nervous disturbances that ac?
company it, is more certainly and rapidly relieved
by HOSTETTER'S STOMACH IIITTEKS than by
any other medicine at present known. It ls true
that general debility is often attended with tor?
pidity or irregularity of thc bowels, and that this
symptom must uot be overlooked. . But while the
discharge of thc waste matter of the system ls
expedited or regulated, its VIGOR MUST BE RE?
CRUITED. Thc Bitters do both. They combine
aperient and anti-bilious properties, with extraor?
dinary tonic power. Even while removing ob?
structions from thc bowels, they tone and invigo?
rate those organs. Through thc stomach, upon
which the great vegetable specific acts directly, it
jives a healthy and permanent Impetus to every
enfeebled function. Digestion ls facilitated, the
faltering circulation regulated, the blood rein?
forced with a new accession of the alimentary
principle, thc nerves braced, and all thc dormant
powers of the system roused into healthy action;
not spasmodically, as would be thc case if a mere
stimulant were administered, but for a contin?
uance. It is in this way that such extraordinary
changes are wrought In the condition of the fee?
ble, emaciated and nervous invalids by thc use of
this wonderful corrective, alterative and tonic.
