HIGHLY INTERESTING FROM WASHINGTON.
HIGHLY INTERESTING FROM WASHINGTON. Detailed Account of the Plans for Dissolving
the Union—The South to be Betrayed into
Rebellion—The Co-operation of England
and France Expected—Louis Napoleon's
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Timet gives, on the 28th nit, the de
tails of the plot to overthrow the Union,
which he before mentioned in brief. He
The details afford unmistakable proof that
the contpiratort have no confidence in the
tympathy of the matte, even of the Ou(Statet.
Their plan is to betray the South into rebel
lion, by a repetition of the Lecompton fraud.
They dread the consequences of a direct ap
peal to the people on the question of dis
union. To elude this danger, the general
convention of the seceding States it to be
elected ly their teveral Igitlaturet, and upon
this body full and conclusive powers of di
tolvivg the Union, and of electing Breckin
ridge to the lretidcncy, are to be conferred!
The people are not to be consulted, cither
in the initintory process of electing the Con
vention, or in the ratification of its resolves.
The treasonable oligarchs, with character
istic contempt fof the rights and interests of
the people, are determined to take the re
sponsibility of proclaiming a Southern Con
federacy, and the masses will be dragooned
into acquiescence by fire and sword. All
who resist, or decline to aid the traitors,
are to suffer death and a confiscation of
It is expected by these miserable plotters
of treason that they will have the active co
operation of England and France, and par
ticularly the latter. The Southern Confed
eracy, in order to enlist the sympathies of
these foreign powers, will open their ports
to the free admission of their merchandize.
This policy would accord admirably with
the free-trade theories of the Gulf States,
but how it will comport with the mainten
ance of an independent Government; we are
It is, however, expected that, instead of
protecting themselves, they will be protected
by the great military and naval Powers of
Europe. Louit Aapoleon hat been contulted,
and hat given promise of any number of troopt,
whenever hit intervention thall become necet
tary. They even rely on the employment
of Northern mercenaries to defend them.
History is full of examples of warning to
Weak nationB against the danger of inviting
the protection of great Powers. The result
invariably is the conquest and enslavement
of the dependent State. I will not stop now
to enumerate these examples. The Disuuion
ists well understand that secession, under
British and French patronage, means noth
ing less than Colonial vassalage to those
Powers. They doubtless expect to find their
account in the betrayal of the liberties of
their country, but they well know that the
people would never sanction the base sur
render; and hence the cunning scheme for
precipitating rebellion, without referring the
action of the Convention to a popular vote.
uci vuuotiiia,uio, nitll lUCil UVOWCU pur-
pose of reviving the African slave-trade,
and their other absurd, wicked and imprac
ticable theories of slavery propagandlsm,
know that they can never again rule this
great, free country. Their lease of political
supremacy in the Union has run out, and
their only hope now of regaining the bliss
ful seat of power, is in overthrowing the
Federal Government. They wish to create a
new though limited Confederacy, in which
the Federal powers will be all their own:
and to secure this object they will consent
to a condition of real dependence on the
great Powers of Europe. To these consid
erations it Is not improbable that individual
vanity may whisper the suggestion of aug
mented personal and family dignity, deriv
able from foreign titles of nobility, as more
than compensating the favored few for the
enslavement of their country to a foreign
As an evidence of Mr. Cobb's success in
propagating his disunion theories at the
National Capital, I mention the fact that the
black cockade has been freely exhibited on
our streets by the subordinates connected
with the Government. Treason to the Union
from which they derive the means of sub
sistence is unblushingly avowed by scores of
these men, and it is said that the badge of
treason has been worn npon the breast in
our streets, in the broad face of day ! This is
the natural teaching of Mr. Cobb aud his
principal assistants. The Constitution is
trampled under foot, and the flag of our
country is insulted by the very men who
draw their monthly salaries from the Ti-eas-uryk
The Diplomatic Corps at Washington Ridicule
the Idea of Disunion—Mr. Breckinride
the Idea of Disunion—Mr. Breckinride Nearly Crazy About his Nomination.
A Washington dispatch. to the New York
Timet of the 29th ult. says:
One of the most prominent of the foreign
diplomatic corps closed his dispatches to
day, to his Government, in these words:
"There will be an election, but there will
be no disunion." The foreign diplomatists
here ridicule the idea of disunion, and ex
press every confidence in the perpetuity of
Government, while all classes of our own
people are apprehensive of serious danger.
. It is understood here that secession can
be accomplished peaceably, as the Adminis
tration is a unit in its opposition 'to any at
tempt to hold the Union together by force.
The peaceable secession of one or more
States, it is said, would not disturb the op
erations of the Federal Government, while
a single blow to prevent it would rend the
Union to atoms.
The confidence of several of the largest
bidders for the Government loan is giving
way, and considerable alarm is expressed. A
gentleman passed through here yesterday
with $25,000 in Virginia bonds, for the New
York market, and predicted that in ten days
$500,000 in Southern bonds would be offered
in W all-street, in exchange for gold.
We have a rumor from the West that Mr.
Breckinridge is nearly crazy at the ruin his
nomination has brought ou the Democratic
party, and charges that he was over-persuaded
to accept by President Buchanan and
Senator SJidell. .. .
Advices received to-day from New York

The Charleston (S. C.) Mercury of late date
The merchants of New York, under the
alarms of the New York Herald, are making
gigantic efforts to buy off. and frighten oft,
the people of the State from carrying out
their political views and sentimentsjust now,
in the election of Lincoln. William B.Astor,
we are informed, has contributed one mill
ion of dollars, and another million has been
raised from the first half-dozen merchants
that were applied to. This is but a sample
of what they are doing. These men really
suspect that the South or a small portion
of it at least, is in earnest about opposing
the election of the representative man of the
legal and constitutional majority. Are tho
moneyed men of Gotham given to panics,
that they should bleed themselves so freely,
and in so hopeless a task, as diverting, by
gold and gabble, the people of a great free
State from the vindication of their political
convictions? Are the people of New York
so timid and so profligate in political senti
ment, that an attempt bo uncomplimentary
to their integrity and intelligence should be
gravely attempted? It is, indeed, an argu
ment against their capacity for self-government
an insult to the cardinal principle of
republican government, and a horrid slur
upon the rural population of the great Em
pire State. In fact, we are astonished at the
audadify, not to speak of the immorality, of
We presume, however, that as fear is un
scrupulous, under the higher-law plea of
necessity, these bad practices are reconciled
to the consciences of terri fied merchants. To
their morbid apprehensions, as a matter of
policy, it seems better to contribute a largo
Bhare of what each is worth, than to iose the
greater part of their property in the depre
ciation and panic that must follow, at the
North, the dreadful dissolution of the Union.
But who is it that is cruelly terrifying
these Northern princes, and making them
come down to the work of defeating Lincoln?
Has the South got them by the pockets, that
they should display such zeal, and do they
know it ? Is it the disunion braggadocio at
the South that induces them at this late day
to make such Herculean exertions? We ask
for information. Maybe it was the disunion
ists . of the State-rights Democracy that
elected Mr. Buchanan in 1856, by pitting in
terest against inclination at the North. . In
this instance, however, we are sorry to be
lieve the New Yorkers may save themselves
the trouble. The city is not the State, and

which is worth a small premium. The
broker conceived the plan of attempting to
obtain change for 1,000-frano bills at the
bank of the Kursaal, and thus cunningly
avoid paying the customary discount. As
he could not personally carry this ingenious
project into effect without infringing the
ordinance above mentioned, he determined
to manage the affair by aid of some obliging
Selecting a very gentlemanly-looking
player, the broker called him aside, ex
plained his desire, and asked the gentlemanly-looking
player to procure a rouleau
of fifty Napoleons, in exchange for the 1,000
franc bill, to which the other readily as
sented. But it so happened that the gentlemanly-looking
player had, but a moment
before, lost bis sole remaining Louis, and,
as he approached the table, the demon of
hazard whispered in his ear that the chance
of making a 1,000 francs on a turn of the
cards, was not to be stupidly thrown away.
If he won, he would hand the rouleau to
the broker, and slip the bill into his own
pocket. If he lost, the demon suggested an
admirable mode of clearing his skirts of
blame or responsibilty. The demon tri
umphed, and the gentlemanly-looking player
made bis way through the crowd to the ta
ble, and tossed the bill upon it. A moment
afterward the 1,000-franc note was raked
away by the croupier. With the most per
fect coolness, the gentlemanly-looking player
turned around and exclaimed, in a loud
voice: "My poor unfortunate Mr. -(giving
the broker's name), your 1.000
francs are dished! It's your own fault! I
told you color would lose, but you were ob
stinately determined to bet on color, and

So the broker lost his 1,000 francs, and had
also incurred the penalty of a heavy fine for
.transgressing the laws.
SlNOTLAB ENCOtTKTER BETWEEN CoWS AND
Geese. We cut the following from the
West Highland (C. W.) Journal of late
date: , ,r
On Thursday afternoon, a flock of about
twenty geese, belonging to Mr. F. Hogg,
farmer, Blythe, wandered from the Links,
where they usually feed, into a field near
Crofton, where four cows were grazing. The
cows, on seeing them, bellowed furiously,
and presently setting themselves shoulder to
shoulder, like soldiers, they made a run at
the geese. This they repented several times,
when one of the geese, getting detached
from the flock, was run npon by the cows,
one of which caught upon its horns and
tossed it ap in the air. After it fell, the four
cows set upon and killed it. By this time
an alarm was given by some persons who
had witnessed the strange scene, and two
men went to the rescue with a dog. While
driving the geese out of the field, the cows
again gave chase after the dog, men and
geese, and it was with some diuiculty that
they got clear off.

wild oats, and became very deeply enamored
of the operatic heroine. But the yonng no
bleman had not yet come iuto possession of
his ancestral domains; and, indeed, a pa
rental relative still Btood in the way of his
prodigalities, placed him under judicial in
terdiction, and cut off the supplies com
pletely. The Viscount, true to the instincts
of all spendthrifts, discounted the future, at
a ruinous usury, to obtain means of carrying
on the orgies of the present that is to say,
the present of thirty years ago. He ac
cepted twenty-four thousand francs' worth
of bills of exchange, drawn in favor of
M'Ue P. Out of this sum 10,000 francs have
been paid, from time to time, between 1830
But Lucie now is on the shady side of fifty.
Her elegant morning-gown and Blippers
wore out, long ago. Iu the course of her
career she has been rich; but she has been
prodigal, and just now that little balance of
14,000 francs would be comfortable. The gay
young Viscount is no longer agayyeung
Viscount he is dead. Lucie presented her
remaining bills of exchange to her defunct
admirer's heirs, who prouounced them a
swindle, thought the deceased Viscount
"ought to have been ashamed of himself,"
and flatly refused to pay.
Lucie poured the story of her troubles
into the ears of a very distinguished lawyer,
("nothing like having a distinguished law
yer!" thought the cunning Lucie), and the
heirs of M. de L. employed an equally dis
tinguished lawyer ('nothing like pitting
one distinguished lawyer against another!"
though the heirs) to defend their determina
tion not to honor the acceptance of the de
ceased scapegrace. Both distinguished gen
tlemen did their best, and came out even.
This being the case, the Court could only
render judgment on the simple facts, and the
result was that the heirs have been con
demned to pay thelOOO francs.
The Prince of Wales at the New England
Colleges—How Albert Edward's Wishes
Some entertaining fragments of gossip
concerning the Prince's viBit to Cambridge
and Harvard Colleges come from an authen
tic source. All the collegians, with the ex
ception of twenty Freshmen, wore new hats.
The students were very anxious to have a
thoroughly good time with his Royal High
ness. The programme they proposed was as
follows: The entire flotilla or boats were to
go to the city, and on board of one of these
the Prince was to be taken and rowed to the
University; there a series of genuine college
"spreads" were to be given in the private
rooms, and the Baron was to go about in a
free-and-easy way; next was to occur a dance
on the green, and, in fine, "a roaring time"
was to be made. But the elders shook their
heads and paid no attention to the fact that
they were once young. His Royal Highness
remarked to one of tho students, who invited
him to out awoy for a quiet pipe, that he
would be glad to, but the old fogies wouldn't
let him up.
; At the collation In Harvard Hall, which,
like all college banquets, was conducted on
total-abstinence principles, the worthy Pres
ident said to the Prince, "Will you drink
tea or coffee?" "Neither, t thank you," re
plied the guest; "I will drink wine' "I am
sorry to say we have no wine." "Oh, never
mind, I will take ale." Here was an unfor
tunate fix. The quick wit of the President
did not desert him. He summoned a stu
dent and dispatched him to his mansion,
with a request that the proper person would
at once send over a dozen bottles of a certain
sherry. The student went, but his eye
mirthfully twinkled; the consequence was,
that the matron in charge of the wine-cellar
suspected a college prank, and would not
furnish liquor for a sophomore to drink. So
the Prince went dry, and the nervous anx
iety of the quondam Greek Professor, who
wondered why his prime Old Brown did not
Come, was curious to behold.
Tbk Province of Poetry and Fiction.
Mrs. Botta, in her Handbook of Literature,
defines, in the following extract, the appro
priate place of fiction and poetry in litera
ture: Fiction borders closely on the province of
history, which, in its broad and comprehen
sive outline, must necessarily leave unno
ticed many of the fine lights and shades of
human life, descriptions of motives, private
characters, and domestic scenes. To supply
these in the picture of humanity is the 'dis
tinct office or fiction, which, while free in
many respects, should be essentiallv true.
The poetry and fiction of the country should
be the worthy companion to its history.
While the historian describes events, and
the outward lives of men, the poet penetrates
into the inner life, and portrays the. spirit
that moves them. The historian records
facts; the poet records feelings, thoughts,
hopes, and desires; the historian keeps in
view the actual man; the poet the ideal man;
the historian tells us what man has done:
the poet reminds us, either in his dreams or
the past, or in his visions of the future,
what man can be; and the true poet, who
fulfills such a destiny, is as necessary to the
development of mankind as the historian.
Description of Trenton Falls. Bayard
Taylor, the world's traveler, writes from
Trenton Falls. He speaks of the originality
or uniguity of the place; the glen or crack
through which the water runs being three
miles long and about 200 feet deep, through
a bed of mica slate, in horizontal strata, con
stituting innumerable shelves or ledges, on
which grow flowers, shrubs, and sometimes
trees. The summits of the banks are cov
ered with evergreens, mingled with decid
uous trees. The color of the water he de
scribes as "amber," but running through all
tints, from topaz to the richest Vandyke
brown. Maria Lowell, in a poem, calls it
"fretted sherry." The waters did not appear
to rage; B. T. could think of nothing but a
mad Bacchanalian revel, and the resem
blance to wine strengthened the impression.
"The path leads along narrow ledges, on the
verge of whirlpools and cauldrons, so near
the falls that the rainbow surrounds you
like a dazzling gossamer, and its red aud
gold smite you in the eyes." This is one of
the most remarkable fulls in the world, and
it is almost at our own doors.
New Discovert through the Microscope.
Balbiani, the Italian microscopist has com
municated to the world a new chapter in the
history of the infusoria. After long obser
vation, be is enabled to demonstrae that
the method of reproduction among these
minute creatures is oviparous, and not, as
has been generally supposed,' viviparous.
One objection to this belief has been the
fact that numbers of individuals, supposed to
be the young have frequently been found in
the body of infusorial specimens. Balbiani
has discovered that these are not the, young
of the same race, but parasites belonging to
a totally different Bpecies. The last objec
tion to the oviparous theory, which has been
strenuously opposed by some of the German
microsoopists, thus disappears.

An Ungrateful Count and
Suit for Her Annuity.
The Paris correspondent of the New York
A suit has been instituted by Mademoiselle
Antoinette H., against the Count de M.; the
other by Mademoiselle Lucie P. against the
Viscount de L. Years ago, when Antoinette
was voung aud fair, she was a favorite actress
and has more than once appeared behind the
foot-lights in the company of no less a
celebrity tlian Rachel. She became devot
edly attached to a voting officer, who, at that
time, possessed little fortune save his sword.
To him the young actress sacrificed her
youth and professional prospects. He had
served in Africa, and returned to France
with shattered health and serious wounds.
In order to be near him, to watch over him,
to attend upon his bed-side, Antoinette left
the theater, and sold her stage wardrobe to
irocure the means of adding to her invalid
The voung soldier belonged to an aristo
cratic family, but his father, the Count de M,
had long since cast him off, in consequence
of this riat'ion with an actress. Under the
tender enre of his disinterested nurse, the
officer recovered his health; and, in the over
flow of his gratitude, spontaneously bouud
himself and his heirs topay her alife-annuity
of 4,000 francs. The old Countde M., touched
by Antoinette's (devotion, became recon
ciled to his Bon, and indorsed the paper which
provided for the psyment of the annuity.
Time passed on ; the once lovely Antoinette
faded, and a separation took place.
A project of marringe was set on foot be
tween Monsieur de M. and a lady of his own
rank ; and then the fnther and son set about
attempting to economise their $800 per an
num paid for the Bupport of the ex-actress.
Antoinette appealed to the tribunals, and ob
tained a full confirmation of her rights. In
addition to the loss of the suit, the Count de
M. has brought discredit upon a name trans
mitted to him untarnished by a long line of
ancestors, who, whatever their faults, would
have undoubtedly scorned the meanness of
endeavoring to escape from a debt ot grati
Strength and Ferocity of the
Extraordinary Species of ManFiends.
Dr. Du Chaillu is probably the first and
only white man who has dared to wage War
with gorillas. The apes of Borneo and
Sumatra are infants in comparison with
them. The far-famed Chimpanzee is a great
decile creature, which can never be named in
the Bame day with the gigantic savago of
Central Africa. Think of it I The gorilla is
six feet two inches in hicht. and three feet
between the shoulder-blades. The paw is
that of a giant three times the size of the
human hand. The finger measures six
inches in circumference at the base. There
is an immense ridge running perpendicular
over the cranium: this and the great jaws
are packed with muscle of prodigious
strength. The creature has huge arms, alto
gether disproportioned to the body. It is
covered with black hair, and has a matted
look onts head, which it has the power of
bringing over its face. It has almost the
sagacity of a man, and almost the ferocity
of a fiend. The male is terribly pugnacious;
the female always flies. When they make
their attack they beat their breasts with
their fists, making a sound which can be
beard a mile. Their cry which has a ter
rific resemblance to a human voice can be
heard three miles amid the reverberation of
As they approach their adversary, they
endeavor to intimidate him. One would
think this was easily done. That fearful
sound, those frantic eyes, glarinp; with the
intelligence and malignity of a demon, were
enough to shake nerves not easily disturbed
from their equipoise. Our hero lost five or
six men in these strange engagements. Think
of the tremendous strength that, with one
blow of the arm, could crush the ribs like
pipe-stems, and tear out a piece of tho side;
and that, with a single movement of the
jaw, could crush the barrel of a gun as if it
nad been a stick of candy I Another fact :
There are no lions in the beat of the gorilla.
Aaron Burr and Hxnry Clay The
Caute of Their Enmity. The Louisville
(Ky.) Journal says:
When Aaron Burr wag arrested in the
West for treason, he applied to Henry Clay,
then a young man, to defend him. Having
heard the leading circumstances from Clay
own lips, we can state them correctly. Mr.
C. loved his country too well to be willing
to undertake the defense of a man whom he
believed guilty of treason. Before he would
undertake Burr's case, he sought a private
interview with him, and appealed to him to
say confidentially and upon his honor
whether he was or was not guilty as charged.
Burr gave his most solemn assurance that he
was not, and Mr. Clay defended him and
procured bis acquittal. Afterward, how
ever, Mr. Clay became convinced from
various facts, and especially, as he said, from
seeing a letter of Burr, in cypher, that ho
had been deceived by B., and he afterward
refused to speak to him, and upon one occa
sion rejected bis preferred hand. Mr. Clay
was not able to read the latter in cypher,
but he was convinced that Burr was guilty
of projected treason by the fact of his resort
ing to such a covert mode of communicating
A Reading Bore Effectually Silenced.
The bore who is the greatest of all bores is
he that reads to you aloud. If he reads his
own composition he deserves death. A Par
isian gentleman, afflicted with the presence
of a young poet who was given to this trick,
shut his mouth forever, in the following
manner: The bore bad read a poem an hour
long. At its close he was overwhelmed
with compliments and felicitations, for there
is some remnant of lip-politeness yet extant
in Paris. But people looked into each other's
countenances with silent gloom. Was this a
precedent for future inflictions? If so, the
reunion might as well be broken up at once.
The host, a gentleman of exceeding tact!
divined what was passing in the minds of
his guests, and restored confidence by a
stroke worthy of a Talleyrand. Approach
ing the youthful poet, modestly awaiting
the anticipated tribute to his genius, the gen
tleman seized both his hands, and in a de
lighted tone exclaimed, "My dear sir I You
can not imagine how much I am pleased and
astonished! I thought you were a tenor,
when, in reality, your voice is a very line
baritone I" The incipient bard is not likely
to read any more verses in that house, as
may well be imagined. . j
