Jim BIu?*8o had a worthy disciple in
tbs engineer o! tbs burned Oily of New
London. Though he didn't hold her
nozzle agin the bank, (because he couldn't
get it there,) he did stiok to his post tili
avery hair on his face and head was
singed with the flames. Then he buckled
a life-preserver round him and went on
deck to help the passengers. They say
his voioe was cheery and his face as
bright os over, through all the heat and
glare of tho burning boat, and many a
man and woman owed their life that
night to Matt. Baker's vigorous arm.
The forward deok was tho last to go, and
high up near tho bows Matt, found a
helpless woman without support of friend
or plank. His face grew a little grave as
ho fastened his life-preserver round her
waist nnd lowered nor gently into the
water, bnt aleared again as bright aa ever
when bo turned to bid hi-s captain good?
bye. They were tho last souls to leave
the boat, and jumped together from the
gang-way. The captain, unharmed and
frosh, reached the shore in safety; but
Matt. Baker, burned and bruised, with
one eye blinded and one arm raw from
shoulder to wrist-Matt. Baker, with hie
quiet smile and his bravo heart, went
knowingly to his doath, oounting tho life
of a nameless woman better than his own.
The misunderstanding between Prus?
sia and Brazil Bourns to have had rather
an ignoble origin. A tavern brawl is a
trivial thing to canso trouble botweoc
two great nations, aud Buoh is said to
have been at the bottom of tho matter.
It appears that seven or eight Prussian
officers, being in a oofTeo house at Bio
de Janoiro, got into a quarrol with some
Brazilians. Hard words arose, a goneral
fight ensued, and the Prussians, having
ejected their opponents, wont to work
and smashed everything in tho house.
While this pastime wus in progress, tho
police arrived. Most unfortunately, the
Prussians resisted the officers of the law,
more fighting took place, wounds wore
givon on both Bides, and finally the bel?
ligerent foreignors were captured and
taken to prison. Among thom is said
to be n near relative of Prince Bismarck,
and the wholo business looks very disa?
greeable A diplomatic correspondence
has been exchanged, and tho prisoner
Imvo been sot nt liborty. But the reporl 1
from Hamburg, that n, German squadron
was under orders to fit out at Kiel ano
sail for Brazilian waters seems to bo con?
firmed, and it ia not impossiblo that se?
rious complications will arise from an
absurdly insignificant occasion.
TlIE Al?TAK AND THE TOMR-FATAL Ac
CIDENT.-A deplorable occurrence, re?
sulting in tho death of an aged matron,
and addiug another pregnant illustration
to the oft quoted truism, "in tho midst
of life wo uro in death," occurred last
night at tho house of Mr. Roy td Todd,
on Broad, between First aud Second
streets, in this city. At tho hour of ?
on that evening, preparations were pro?
gressing at Mr. Todd's for tho antici?
pated nuptials of ono of his daughters
that evouing, at Graco Street Baptist
Church. In assisting in preparing foi
this coming happy event, tho clothing
of Mrs. Eleanor Johnson, aged seventy
eight years, tho grand-mother of tho
bride, took firo from a grato, and was in
a momont in flames. Tho cries of the
unfortunate lady summoned immediate
aid, but boforo the firo could be extin?
guished the flames had dono their fatal
work. Sho lingered in great agony until
12 o'clock, when tho augcl of death kind?
ly put nn end to her sufferings. Thus
was tho boneo of joy tnrned into ono of
mourning, and tho inmates, by one foll
and untoward blow, prostrated with the
most poignant grief. Truly, "in thc
midst of lifo wo are in death."

Eighteen months ago Louis Napoleon
was the most potent ruler in Europe
His word was tho law. His voice mudo
nationB quake. Hundreds of thousands
of armed men marched and counter?
marched at his command. Now ho is a
refugee in n foreign land, nono so poor
as to do him reverence. Three months
ago Tweed, tho Tammany ruler, was all
powerful in New York-swaying tho des?
tinies and dictating the policy of the
great Democratic party of tho country
now he shrinks, shorn of power and in?
fluence, under tho surveillance of de?
tectives, standing a good chance of serv?
ing a term at Sing Sing. Grant, the
Radical President, might profit by these
examples. Hois a fur more fit subject
for fortune's freaks than either Napoleon
or Tweed. His elevation to tho Presi?
dency was ono of her strangest feats.
To pitch him again into the tan-yard, or
gutter, from whence ho sprang, would
delight a largo majority of the people
and convulso tho nations of thc earth

In another part of tbe gallery, our rural
friend notices a crowd of colored people
all to themselves. He is surprised at
this, for at tho headquarters of no dis?
tinction on account of race or oolor or
previous condition, he expected to see
the races mixod up in duo harmonious
mass, us an example for the wicked
Southern States. Ho is pained to see
colored people themselves, here even
under tho wings of the American eagle
and over tho bald heads of the Congress?
men who have talked so long nnd so
loudly about the beauty and advisability
of us all dwelling together as brethren,
without distinction of race or color. A
long distance away from his oolored
brothers, ho sees quite a collection of
ladies, aud he musters up courage to ask
of tho mau who sits next to him who
tkoso ladies aro. The man opens his
eyes and siys they aro mostly the wives
and daughters of Congressmen, who
como to look down upon their gigantic
protectors below, and see what part they
play in tho mighty war. Oar friend
answers, that if such bo tho case, he is
pained to notice a considerable distinc?
tion of color, and wonders why there
should bo so much difference botweon
theory sud praotico. His neighbor smiles
und replies, "Oh, these Congressmen
talk like philosophers and aot like men."
