The following incident is said to
have rocen tly caused some amusement
in tho Loudon fashionable circles:
A Indy of distinct ion, the Marchion?
ess of Finsbury, lately spent more
than an hour in a music store in
Regent street, buying all the pieces
of munie with a sentimental title that
she could find. .When she had
finished her purchases, and vas
already on the threshold of the door,
she paused a moment with a hesi?
tating air. The clerk, who had
assiduously waited on so good n
oustomer, stepped forward and asked
t her if she wished fol; anything else.
', The marchioness made ah effort tc
collect .her. thoughts, and turned
back, .fixing her eyes on the face ol
tho clerk, who blushed to the ears.
"I had quite forgotten one thing,'
said she, in a voice that seemec
tremulous. "I don't know what ii
the matter with me to-day. I cam?
back to ask you if-"
She made a short pause, as if t<
summon np her courage. Mean wbib
the clerk, pulling np his false collar
leaned gracefully on the counter an<
?I came back," continued th
marchioness, "to ask if yon wonl<
be good enough to give me a leis
before parting ?"
"My lady ?" exclaimed the astonish
"I desire that you should give m
a lei?? before parting," repeated th
marchioness, with a deliberate ail
fixing her eyes on the clerk, wh
seemed turned into stone. Wi thou
betraying the least emotion, sh
repeated the request for the thir
time? saving, "if yon cannot give it t

The cl erl:, intoxicated with joy I
the hasty thought that the beantift
marchioness had taken a sudde
fancy for bini, did not wait foran
farther entreaties, but, apr in gin
over the counter, threw his arm
around the waist of his fair cus tomo
and impressed the asked-for kiss npo
her chook. To his surprise, his sol
response was a blow in the face froi
the parasol of the marchioness, wh
began to shriek wildly, and did m
cease until three policemen rushe
into the shop, and took the wonde;

[New York Herald.
THE NEW TAX BILL.-Aoooirdinfe to
the provisions of, the new tax bill,
passed in the House of Representa?
tives, whick now goes to the Senate
for concurrence, the tax on whiskey
is fixed at fifty cents for every proof
gallon, and all spirits in bonded
warehouses must bo withdrawn
within six months and pay a tax of
four dollars per barrel, in addition to
that of fifty cents per gallon. The
system of bonding is abolished, and
henceforth the tax is to be paid at
the distillery. Tho tax on tobacco is
fixed ab thirty-two cents for chewing
and snuff, five dollars per 1,000 for
segars, cigarettes, and cheroots, and
two dollars and a half per pound and
twenty-five per cent, ad valorem on
foreign segars, this latter being a
reduction from the present dnties.
Contrary to what was expected, the
bill is not devoted exclusively to
whiskey and tobacco. The tax on
banks is also regulated. This io
fixed at one per cent per annum on
private deposits, three per cent, per
annum on public deposits, and the
half of ono per cent, per annum on
the capital employed by banks and
I The retirement of Count Bismarck
from the control of the Prussian
Ministry, although ostensibly for
only the period of three months, is
regarded in Franco as likely to be
final. The Heroulean labors he has
undergone, united with his peculiar
irascibility of temper, doggedness,
and indomitable industry, have seri?
ously nndermined his health. Whe?
ther he returns to his position or
not, he has already made a mark in
history equal to that of Cavour.
Both statesmen have succeeded in
blotting out from their countries the !
petty divisions and dissensions of
centuries, and elevated them to
formidable powers. It now remains
to be seen whetbor their successors
will possess the ability to follow in
the track opened to them, or lose,
through error or supineness, the
brilliant achievements of their
There is very little sign of a satis?
factory arrangement between the
"boss" masons and their workmen.
Another meeting of the former was
held yesterday, at whioh a resolution
was reiterated not to employ any
brick-layer' connected with the
"Union," so long os they persist in
their demands. The bosses are re?
solved to go to work themselves and
complete the unfinished buildings
now on hand. The latter resolution
looks like business and determina?
tion. We should suppose the brick?
layers wonld soon find out that in
injuring tho building operations of
the city, they are also injuring them?
selves irretrievably, says the Times.
RAPE.-Derrick, a copper-colored
negro, living iu Hopewell neighbor?
hood, committed rape on his own
daughter, a week or so since. He
beat her very cruelly several times
before he succeeded. He is now out,
avoiding arrest, and we learn that
there is considerable excitement in
the neighborhood from the fear
many entertain of him. He is about
forty years of ago, copper-colored,
very powerful and a daring villain.
On yesterday, a party was in pursuit
of him, but we have not yet heard
whetbor they succeeded in capturing
