The selection of Prince Leopold, of Ho
hcnzollern Sigmaringen, for King of Spain,
subject to his ratification by the .National
Cortes or Congress, has stirred up quite a
breeze in Enrope, the French Government
showing itself quite panicy and pugnacious.
The grounds for this are that the monarch
prospective is too closely related to Prussia.
The reigning house of Prussia is a branch of
the Hohenzollern family. About the year
800 of the Christian era, one Count ThiJasso
was famous in German affairs, and built a
castle on the heights of Zollcrn, near Hech
ingen, and thence hLs descendant derived
their name. The HoVensoIlerns, about the
middle of the twelfth century, divided into
two lines, the Suabian ami Franeonian,
and; in the year 157t, the former tt.is
again divided into the Branches of Hohftn
xollem Hechingen, and Hohenzdletn S
maringen. These two houses retained, untja

Hoficnzollem, a mountainous tract, contain
ing about four hundred and eight"? tspiarc

of Wurteniburg. In Ihe year last men
tioned Ihe revolutionary troubles proved too
much for Ihe petty princes, and they ccjrd
their rights and territiies to Pnis..ia, flic
royal family of which is descended from
Thilax). They retvivol, in return, liberal
salaries, and retained their private estntesand
their princely title. They are liom.m Catlio

II. without issue, in 1700, Louis XlV. of
France plungeil Kuroie into thirteen years of
war by making his grandson King of Spiin
under the title of Philip V. In 18lt Louis
Philip thought he had secured Spain for his
stin, the Duke of Montpcnsier, by marrvihg
him to Queen Isabella's sister, and uniting
the Queen to a man believed to lie little more
than a corpse. Isiliella, however, had child
ren, and kept her place until the recent revo
lution. Montiensicr's aspirations for the
succession have thus far lieen fruitless, and it

At a little station called Shunpike, on? Ihe
Duchess and Columbia railroad, a few days
since, occurred the scene we are about to re
late: As the 15:.T0 train was nearly due on
Thursday morning, 3rr. Frederick Case,
station agent at Shunpike, and living at a
short distance from the track, left his lionie
for tiic purpose of o'tiening the ticket office.
He had not liecn gone long when hi little
son, two years old, found his way through
tlic open gate lo the track, where he was at
tracted, no doubt, with the childish curi-o-ity
of his age. His sister, eleven
vears of age, bu-ying hen-elf alvnt hon.-ehold
duties, did not first notice hi als-cnec. Sud
denly hearing the shriek of the approaching
train, she looked for her little brother, ami,

Where Mr. IHckens was recounting
his own jier-onal experience-, there h noth
ing in his works that seems like a-cribing to
the ministry in general the peculiarit'c- by
which he has portrayed the Stiggines ami
the Chadband-. On the contrary, speaking
of Father Taylor of Boston in "American
Notes, 7 he expresses warm admiration. He
afterwards reviews his own sentiments of ad
m'ntinn. . and concludes: "It Ls possible,
however, that my favorable impression of him
may been greatly influenced and strength
ened,, first, by his irnpressing upon his hear
ers that the true observance of religion was
not inconsistent with a cheerful deportrnent
and an exact discharge of the duties of their
station, which, indeed, it scrupulously re
quired of them; and,.ecoridIy, by his cau
tioning them not to set'up any monopoly in
Paradiv and its merries. I never heard
these points so wisely touched (if indeed I
have ever heard it toucnea 31 aiii oy any
preacher of that kind before.'" At the pres

have fallen into the errors of Father Taylor's
flock, and Mr. Dickens is scarcely dead when
