The American Fast Woman.
The New York Tribune thus speaks of our
fast women :
Among the swarms of male and female d
tenturers who lead lives compact of subtlety
and recklc88ness, and are drawn to (rreat
cities by the love of luxury and by the surer
field there afforded for a campaign against
society at large, the roost subtle and danger
ous ot all would seem to be that arch adven
tures the modern fast woman, Her pro
totype existed ages' since, as long ago as
when Sampson bartered every thing for De
lilah; or, later, when "Thais, like another
Helen, fired another Troy." You can trace
her down to latter times, through all histori
cal fact and fiction, finding her likeness in
many a comedy of Moliere, in many a novel
of Fielding, or print of William Hogarth.
But it is in the exciting and fortune-making
modern American life that she has more fully
developed her operations, gaining, at pleas
ure, the entree to our changeful and not
over-scrupulous upper circles, and having her
own wiclied say about half of our real life
trngndy and farce.
It Is only now and then that the career and
terrible influence of the fast woman are
impressively set before the public. An act
of violence is committed, a bank forger ruins
his family and himself a broker comes to
grief, sua to the story of his wicked excesses,
there is the invariable fast woman accom
paniment. She does not share the criminal's
trial and conviction, however, and the
world's interest in ber soon passes by.
But she is everywhere and busily present

an. i.ook, tor a moment, at ner method and
The fast woman is by no means a common
harlot. In nine cases out of ten she has
never walked the streets, nor boarded in a
house of bad repute. - Only once in a while
one of the vulgar sisterhood rises, by superior
shrewdness and ecomplisbments, to the
ranks of the demi-ntomU. The fast woman
affects the private boarding-house. But the
hotel is the place to which she trains un
questioned access, where she lives, most at
her ease, and is enabled (in her own lan
guage) to bat; the. moat game -Ajd it k
owing, first of all, to the wretched, con
glomerate, American hotel system, that fast
women of late abound in such numbers, and
are so dangerous to society. , .
Monstrous Indian Superstition—A Chief

Sotde weeks since. twO men were sent from

Agricultural Richness of Florida.
A Florida correspondent of the Charleston
Couritr maintains that It is practicable to
cultivate in that State, all the tropical fruits
and staples by the side of those belonging to
northern climate. He says t-
All who tnay be skeuttcal on this sublcct
can be readily convinced bv a visit to the
Southern portion of the Peninsula, where
they can see the cocoa tree, the banana, the
fuantain, tne pine-apple, tno orange, the
emon. the lime, the arrow-root, the miava.
Ac., growing ss luxuriantly as they doln any
le West India Islands. There is certainly
no portion of the United States North,
South. East or West that can compare with
East Florida in the variety and the value of
its agricultural productions. It produces
well all the roots and the grain crops of the
jaortnern states, and an tne great staples ot
the Southern States, in addition to the still
more valuable productions which belontr ex
clusively to tropical productions. It is ow
ing to the latter productions that even the
interior lands in that Peninsula can be ren
dered much more valuable than the best
lands in any portion of the United States.
Oranges, lemons, pine-apples, cocoanuts, and
various other tiopicel fruits wi.l yield an
average of at least $1,000 per aero, per an
num. Sisal hemp, it is said by those Rest in
formed, will pay $2,000 to the acre. Indeed,
it would oe teaious to discuss tne great va
riety of tropical fruits and staples, the cul
tivation of which would render the common
pine lands of East Florida far more valuable
than the bttt nirricultnral lands in any other
portion of the United States. -

Extraordinary Railroad Accident.

the Hudson Kiver Railroad, that left New
York a day or two since, met with an acci
dent in the afternoon, as It neared the bridee

misplacement of a switch. The train was
composed of one passenger and three freight
cars, also a platform car. . When the train
left the track, the engineer and fireman each
supposed mere was no possiDie nope to pre
vent the whole train from going down an
embankment some twenty-five feet high.
Each "jumped from his position.' The train
kept on, cuttine through the sleepers and
plowing up the earth. After running thus
about one hundred feet, the platform and two
ot tne treignt cars Became oetocned trom trie

bankment Two of them -were smashed to
atoms, while the other was not badly dam
aged. The third freight car fell over, bnt did
not go down the embankment, and the pas

kept on its way till it reached the edge of the
abutment of the bridge. At this point it wab

ine accounts 1 believed in part, and the

As It was a year before last May that I
came to this country, I inquired of my friends
now soon tne snow would tan and water
freeze. I used to look through the windows
early in mornings to see if there was any
snow on the ground. In September I no
ticed something white spreading over the
ground. I rushed out In ecstacy, and told
my friends about it. Can you imagine my
disappointment when they said it was mere
frostl In Boston I saw the first snow. As
tonished, I stood to watch the flecks fall inn
from the sky. "Father," said I, "thus Thy
blessings fall upon us, abundantly and im
partially; upon the good and the evil alike.'
i wisnea very mucn tnat my Bengalee
friends could see such a sight; and fiadiug it
was impossible, thought of some way to send
them a little relic of the white mud. I made
a solid heavy snowball, which seemed so dur-

India by the first opportunity; took it to Mr.

Need I tell you the result? it is well known to
you all. In my letter to Bengal I described
tie leading feature ot tne American winters,
but could not write anything about freezing;
hoping to do it by and by, after I had some
experience of it.
My health is, on the whole, better in this
country. My friends tell me to eat meat,
even it it was a very little, and drink some
warm arinx, out i can not ao so. l never
ute any meat, or used any drink but that
which comes out of the bosom of our mothei
earth. Now and then I wish to be in India
to see the laud smile, the flowers bloom, nnd
the birds sing in these months.
On the late Christmas your churches were
decorated with leaves only there were
hardly any flowers there. In Calcutta you

A Flattering Picture of Boston.
Boston, according to the rather biased Opin
ion of the Pott, is to-day the second com
mercial city In the United states. Her im
ports in 1859 were $41,174,070; her exports
f l, 1 7H, no, and ner tunnage was jo,0ii tuns.
UOBton has nearly one-halt ot tne registered
tunnage of Now York, and these two cities
combined own more than one-half of the
entire shipping in this country that is engaged
in foreign trade i. e., i,:4t),ouu tuns, out oi
2,400,00Otunsof registered shipping. Boston
owns more than double the tuns of any port
save New York. The last was an unfavor
able year for her commerce, the amount of it
iieing less than during some preceding years.
This was owing, of course, to the financial
disasters of 1H57, the effects of which still
continue. The future increase of our com
merce can not be doubted. The present
year is to connect us with the Southeru
States by new and important lines of steam
ships. And the present and prospective fa
cilities for reaching the West and Northwest
will further stimulate our commerce. As a
city, the nearest to Europe of any of the great
cities of the land, with a fine harbor, and
being, perhaps, the most desirable residence
for a merchant of any city in the land, she
promises to maintain her present rank, and
greatly to increase her commercial powers.
John Morrisset in New York TheFanov
Excited. On ' Friday evening, John Morris
Bey, the noted pugilist, arrived in New York
from Boston, and no sooner was it known
than the "fancy" became terribly excited.
Rumors of a fight between Morrissey and the
friends of Heenan became current, and it was
not long before there were numerous inqui
ries of the damage done, at nearly every bar
room in the city. There was no fight, how
ever, and the returned muscleman visited the
Sporting-houses without meeting any enemies
desirous of awarding him the punishment
they had so often and so loudly vowed was
his just and certain due. At Keefc's saloon,
aear the Metropolitan Hotel, he was recog
nized by a large number of acquaintances,
some of whom were quite cool in their man
ner, but nothing was said of the part he
played in the late fistic combat on the shores
of Old England. It was very clear that Mor
rissey has Tost many friends among the sport
ing fraternity, but he does not seem to mind
it in the least. It was said, during the eve
ning, that he would challenge Heenan to
fight him, for from $5,000 to $20,000, and that
be intended to make a defense of his conduct
through the columns of a morning paper.
The police are apprehensive of a row should
he moke his appearance in any prominent
sporting house, and will, in consequence,
take every precaution to prevent trouble.
i The Temperance Cause in Massachu
setts. A letter from Haverhill, Mass., says:
One of the most striking movements of the
times in this vicinity is that existing in the
temperance cause. For more than eight
years no effort worthy the name of one, has
been mode here. A moral power has recently
been brought to bear for the revival of the
cause, and with the most gratifying success.
The effort was first commenced late in the
winter, by Mr. Adami, and the result thus
far has been the establishment of three large
and powerful organizations, embracing male,
female, and juvenile membership, which is
bringing back much of the spirit and enthu
siasm 01 tho oia WHsningraman movement.
Contributions to Heenan. American
worshippers of the pugilistic art, and of its
exemplar. John u. neenan, tne uenicia coy,
are determined not to be behind those who
bow down at the shrine of Sayers. The pro
posal lately made to present the Amer can
chamnion with a testimonial has met with
enthusiastic- approval. Already $600 or $700
hava been subscibed. and it is determined
not to cry enough until the turn of $9,000
snou oe reacneo.
Lithograph or the Prince or Wales.
A well-known print-seller in New York has
just published an elegant lithographio por
trait of the Prince of Wales. The face is
that of a youth of great personal beauty, who
wears the decorations of the order of the
Knight of the Bath.
The Double Education of Man.
Henry Word Beecher said in a late sermon:
There is a double education going on under
many circumstances. You will find that
many worldly and bad men worship a great
deal; and for this reason: that it is possible
for a man to worship and be a vilhan. A
man may educate his conscience and not be a
good man. There is no trouble in a man's
being very devout, and yetbeing a scoundrel.
A bandit will not hesitate to stiletto you and
rob you, who would not pass by a pool with
an image of the Virgin Mary besijle it, with
out stopping to cross himself. It is quite
possible for pride and selfishness and worldly
feelings to be developed along with con
science. But where conscience is so edu
cated that it teaches a man what is right
everywhere and under all circumstances,
where conscience is so educated that it eomes
to have a fine edge, where conscience be
comes operative in every part of a man's life,
then these lower tacumee cannot bear sway
in his mind.
Now a man that attempts to live by one
schedule of duty, on holy days, and by
another on secular days, is attempting to
serve two masters that are jealous of each
other and conflicting. I suppose this is the
reason of the leanness of many Christians.
They so demoralize themselves by the in
fluence of worldly things, that when they
go to church their moral nature, drugged and
trampled upon as it has been, can scarcely lilt
itself up; and when it does lift itself up, it
lifts itself up to warn and protest. And there
can be no growth of grace in a soul that is
attempting to carry an outward and an in
ward life ui at are in antagouism. We stock
our lives, by attempting to serve God and
Mammon, witn just those very enemies
which Christ was sent to overcome and set
us free from. . . -
Men lose that simplicity and luminous
peace which belong to Christian lifo, by at
tempting to carry forward their plans and
purposes under double and conflicting mo
tives. Where, for instance, the deep and
master springs of a man's courses are selfish.
and tho ostensible motives that impel him
are benevolent, he is dividing himself, and
developing the elements of a moral conflict.
Ail over tne suriace ot his selhsit courses mny
be bubbles of moral feelings, but they are
like bubbles that reflect for a moment the
colors of heaven, and then break. The cur
rent of his real being flows on deep, strong,
and unwrinkled even by these momentary
glimpses of right. Thus a purpose may arise
and grow strong in wrong feelings; but to
let it go under its own colors would be im
politic in business, and inconsistent with
one's character ana standing in society. And
so the heart beats one thing, and the tongue
ar o ner i tear there are lew men that would
dare sail under true colors. There are few
that carry their real purposes at their mast
head. There are few that cou d sav of the
things that they really mean. "I mean these
things for such and such reasons." There
are lew men that can avoid dressing up bud
motives in tne garments oi better ones.
Wendell Phillips on Wm. Lloyd Garrison.
Wendell Phillips thus writes In the last
number of the New York Independent; .
Who then is William Lloyd Garrison? The
most hated man in all America, upon whom
the malignant eyes of twenty millions of
people have been fastened for thirty years.
But, though living under such a scrutiny,
and while press and pulpit have vented with
out stint the grossest misrepresentation of his
purposes and creed, no lip has yet been found
reckless enough to breathe a doubt ef the
spotless purity of his private life; or to suspect
that he acts or refrains from acting, speaks
keeps silence, from fear of man, love of gain;
or desire of applause. Utter uprightness,
honest intention, transparent sincerity, fear
lessness in speaking his own thoughts, and
entire willingness that every other man's
should be heard; a life of ceaseless and unself
ish toil for others these have never been
denied him. And all this, so much to say
any man, seems bo inning ana negative
merit, side by side with bis eminent services
and brave life, that hardly any one takes note
The most familiar book to his litis is the
Bible, and the first suspicion of infidelity he
excites comes from his asserting that tho
"Book of books," as he calls it, docs not
sanction human bondage, while the whole
unurcn, urougn tne lips ot Anoover and
rnnceton, asserts tuat it does.
In all these pure and Christian labors he
seeks no aid agui nst slavery and intemperance
but that of enlightened reason and a Christian
conscience; appeals only to the highest mo
tives; attacks slavery as a sin, hateful to God,
and as such calls on men to quit it; holds the
standard of moral purity and rigid right so

fellow church-members; resigns bis vote and

careless ethics of the pulpit deem Quixotic.
Holding up tne most unpopular and mo
mentuous cause that our age has stirred,
instead of aid from organizations that call
themselves Christian, their opposition, re
buke, tlander and violence have dogged his
steps. The most Christ-like man of the age,
tested by his spirit and labors, engaged
those tasks which alone save our faith, here
and now, from the well-deserved scorn of the
unbeliever, will be truly known only when
history digs out his character from beneath
the lies with which professed Christians have
cumbered and blocked his path.
Timely Interruption of a Wedding Ceremony
—A Man With Five Wives.
A man calling himself G. W. Board, but
whose real name is supposed to be Thomas
Board, his aliatee being G. W. Boardman.
J. H. Board, and G. W. Brown, was arrested
a few days ago at Owensboro'. He had capti
vated a lady ot that city, and was about to
lead her to the hymeneal altar, the invited
guests having assembled to witness the nup
tials, when it leaked out tuat the gentleman
had gone through that ceremony oflencr
than the law allowed, in Texas and other
parts of the Union. He is a native of Jenkins
County, Va, where be has an interesting
family still living. He visited Richmond,
Texas, in the fall of 1858, and married a lady
by the name of Mason. He had previously
married a widow in, ooutu uaionno, out 00
coining tired of his prey he left and made for
Hannibal, Mo., where he married again. His
stay in that section of country was of short
duration, ana tne next wo iieard 01 mm wo.;
in Louisiana, where he again married a lady
of the Southern clime; but not being easily
satisfied he made his way up the Ohio River
aud tarried atOwensboro', where he succeeded
in making a great many acquaintances, being
largely in funds, and would have succeeded
in his designs had it not been for the timely
interference of some gentlemen as stated
above. He is a man oi engaging manners,
very dressy, and of wiuping ways. .

The narrow streets are entirely full of them.
All classes ride in them. They are the pecu

The hotel would make you laugh. The
rooms look out on a hollow square. They
have no windows, and iron gratings for
doors. Your bed is sacking, with a sheet
stretched over it. A table and a chair, and
posiibly a wardrobe, are the only furniture.
Everybody can look into your room, but
then you can make reprisals by looking into
all your neighbor's premises. These caves
are twenty feet high, and seemed quite
grotto-like when you have retreated to their
extreme recess. At tne same time, monsieur
Le Grand s eating-room and tables are really
sumptuous. The servants eat in the entrance

The streets of the city are very narrow,
and tho side-walks sufficient for one only.
A street twenty leet wide is quite an avenue
here. The awnings often stretch entirely
across the streets. The stores rarely bear
the names of the traders. 1 his one is called
the "Zephyr," the next the "Hope." Then
follow the "Queen," the "Granada," the
"Hope," the "Unique," ftc, fcc. The women
shop it mostly in the evening, by driving up
to the store doors. The attendants bring the

cheats. Everybody take all tney can get.
Give a waiter or a driver a piece of money,
and vou can get no change back. Two
young Americans the other night, belonging
to a ship bound to New Orleans, were left
on shore, and a landlord in the morning
charged them two dollars each tor lodging,
and kept the money. Forewarned, I in
formed myself what the legal charges were,
i pay and walk off, sometimes amid a shower
ot npanish oatos. .
The dwellings have no glass windows,
Projecting iron gratings only stand between
the crowd in the street and the family in the
parlor. The ladies often sit close up to the
gratings, and the public can see every article
iu the rooms.-". Occasionally an acquaintance
stops and chats at the gratings. In the even
ing the chairs are set in two rows at right
angles with the windows, and the family and
visitors sit face to face, the different sexes on
opposite sides, chatting with each other, re
gardless of the passing crowds who almost
brush them, and can look in upon them.
A Splendid Pistol Shot. There recently
resided in St. Louis a young man, Charles I).
Paul, whose extraordinvry feats at pistol
shooting have lately attracted much atten
tion. From a letter received from Atchison.
K. T-, we learn that on Monday last Mr. Paul
astonished the natives of that place by win
ning a match to pierce an apple with a pistol
ball three times out of five, at a distance of
three hundred feet. At two o'clock in the
afternoon, says the letter, the young man
mounted the board and fired. The apple re
mained stationary, and the crowd which had
assembled to witness the extraordinary fent
walked up to it, conscious that the mark had
been missed. They soon found, however,
that thev were mistaken. The ball had per
forated the apple, passed directly through the
center of it, and lodged in a tree behind it
The second shot struck the mark a little to
one side, splitting it into many pieces, while
the third scattered it in every direction.
Thus the match was won in three instead of
five shots, and our young friend hod two bul
lets to spare aiier acnieviug ui victory,

reached the highest pitch of refinement and
elegance. The great object of the Japanese
is to create an entire misconception in the
mind of the spectator as to the situation of
that important joint; bo wishes it to be sup

on his knees; but, finding that process at

which divides them with mathematical pre

this invention will be production increased
