A Professorship of Homeopathy to be Established
in France—Interview Between
a Venerable Friend of Hahnemann and
the French Empress.
A Paris correspondent says: .
reriple of the United States wlirt Are Inter-
efted in the progress of homeopathv- will be
ginu iu ivnru vuni mere ie n piiiiittiiiuir link.
ft profcs?orthip of the STstora will be Buortly
established in the medical school at Lyons;
and this entering wedpe beinR once inserted,
the doctrines of Hahnemann will have a
chance of, being Bprcad through France.
While the Kmperor and Empress were in
Lyons, the Prefect of the Department pre
sented to them, a fine-looking old roan
nearly 100 yenrs of age, the Count de Guidi,
a person nl friend of Hahnoman and the
original introducer of his system into Franco.
The Empress, with her usual benerolenee
of disposition, extended her hand to the old
man, and said to him kin4ly, "Monsieur,
yon ha e rendered great service to human
ity." "Madame," he replied, "listen to the
prayer of in old man," and this prayer was
that a professorship of homeopathy should
be established in the city where he lived,
and in whicn ere long he expected to die;
"and that," said he, "I, who have but few
dnys to live I, who have devoted my life
to'tbe propagation of our doctrine I'll sny,
like Simeon, I have lived long enough."
The Empress promised her aid, and the
old man, encouraged by this, ftddreased a
petition to the snme effect to the Emperor,
and several of the library journals of France
demand ingthat,nol only a'Profeasorship'shall
be established at Lyons, bat also in the other
medical schools of France.
Sisoui.Att Eemo of tub Past A Won
derful Stone found in Louitutna. The Baton
Kouge (La.) Comet, of late date, says:
On digging to make a fence on a lot in
Boulevard-street, opposite the Capitol, sev
eral days ago, a very singular stone was
found, which was presented to the Historical
Society, nnd may now be -seen in the State
Library. It is a very hard conglomerate,
weighing about fifty pounds. Originally it
was an oblong square in form, from which
one end is broken off. On one side rises a
cone, about six inches in hight, which ap
pears to have been hewn out of the solid
rock; for what purpose, is the unanswered
question. Judge Carrignn, perhaps the best
archaeologist within our gates, has examined
his shelves to see if he can find in the an
tiquities of the North, or Central America,
any thing bearing its resemblance, gives up
the job and turns the nut over for antiqua
rians to crack.
We have no stone in this vicinity, and the
Aboricines. With whom we are so imper
fectly acquainted, had no tools save such as
they could make of gold and silver. To our
mind's eye, it looks like a dial the better
shaped counterpart of which we now find in
the shop windows an instrument to show
how the sun comes up and goes down again.
QrjF.Rit Victoria's Hiberniah Descent.
A correspondent of tlie Dublin Evening
On reading the address of Marshal Mc
Mahon, in which allusion is so pointedly
made to bis descent from the ancient mon
archs of Ireland, I find that the presenters
are unaware that our beloved sovereign is
Queen ef Ireland by virtue of her descent
from the family of Fergus, the Irish Prince,
among whose subjects were included the
General's ancestors, and other families which
subsequently attained royal dignity in the
country. Also, mai since r.uwaru i v iae

Peculiar English View of American Democracy
Peculiar English View of American Democracy —Public Opinion a Tyrant in the
The following we clip from an article in
the London Dispatch, which endeavors to
show that persons living under a Monarchy
are freer than those residing in a Republic:
In the United States the rights of the pri
vate subject are completely merged in the
interests of the community. He has no
rights as a private citizen. All the privileges
he possesses are concessions by the whole of
his millionth share of the common stock of
Sower. Lynch overrules law wherever law
iffers from Lynch. It is not enongh that a
jury finds a man innocent; he must be ac
quitted by public opinion, or certainly he
will be sentenced. It is not even enough
that the citizen holds property by tha most
certain- legal title. If the tenure be incon
venient to the majority, as in the case of
seigneurics of New York and Massachusetts,
the State Marshal will be shot down in de
fending hint in possession, and it will bo im
possible to induce a jury to pronounce a ver
dict against his assassins.
The most eternal truths, tho best settled
principles of virtue, must qualify themselves
to the taste of the many-beaded monster.
You must say nothing against slavery, else
you will be tabooed in the East, and tarred
and feathered in the South. You must say
nothing against the United States or against
renuhliranism. If yon would escane eeneral
proscription, the individual is nothing
society is all in all. Mankind are there re
duced to an uniform rank aud file that
merges the full private in his regiment
thnt tolerates no idiosyncracy that has no
charity for what is congenial. Every man
is drilled out of the awkward squad of pe
culiar mnnner, into discipline of the entire
mass of society. He is a cypher that has
value and denomination only when placed
beside the units ot society at large.

Just Definition cv the Term Splurge.
The Rev. Dr. Cox has given . the following,
which well defines the term by illustration:
The word ' splurge" is a coinage probably
not yet in any dictionary, yot meaning, as if
a grent rock of the mountain, disintegrated
fiom its Bummit, should rush and bound,
portentous and avalanched, into a sylvan
lake at its foot, there making an uproarious
splash, boring its momentous way through
through the parted and the frightened
waves, and after dashing the spray in all
directions, buryinir itself in forgotten repose.

cone forever from sieht, from thought, from
unncr air. and all the ways of men; thus
meaning the low aim of making a consider
able sensation at least onco in society.
Melancholy Condition op White La
borers in Slave States. Senator Ham
mond, in an address before the South Caro
lina Institute, once said:
Of the 300,000 white inhabitants of Sonth
Carolina, there are 60,000 whose industry,
such as it is, and compensated as it is, is not
adequate to procure them ihonestly such a
snpport as every white person is entitled to.
Some of them maintain a feeble and inju
rious competition with slave labor; some
can scarcely be said to work at all; they ob
tain a precarious subsistence by occasional
jobs, by hunting, by fishing, some times by
DlunderiDtt fields or folds, and too often by
what is in its effects far worse trading
with slaves, and seducing them to' plunder
for their benefit.
Liberal Relioious Bequests. Miss Eliza
Angell, of Providence (grand-daughter of
Commodore Hopkins), who died recently at
the age of seventy-seven years, left property
to the valuo of upward of $150,000, mainly
real estate, the balk of which sho devised to
religious objects. The homestead farm, and
other property to the value of $40,000, are
civen in trust to Rev. Drs. Wayland, Cas
well and Granger, for the erection of a Bap
tist church and parsonage-house in North
Providence, the church to be forever free.
A large share of the remainder is bequeathed
to the support of destitute Baptist clergy
men and the education of their children.

Wheat the Queen op King Cotton. The
New York Evening rott says in a late issue:
Cotton, it has been said, is king; and
one will dispute, who has observed the
course of politics for many years past, that
cotton is a potentate of tremendous power.
Rut another monarch of trade is risincr,

him, to some extent, the homage and love

The whole scene with "Desdemona," in the
fourth act, was grandly and BnMly

his suppoBed wrong, and tenderness for the

The Roman Advcrtirer, in an article com

some curious statistics of the compar itive
capacity of the most celebrated churches in
Europe. We add a column, exhibiting the
number of square yards:
Those who attended at Pt. Peter's during
the august ceremonies of Christmas day,
might have imagined that temple, in all
parts open to the public during the func

show the impossibility of St. Peter's being
ever crowded, we annex the foHowine sta

other great churches, allowing four persimj

An Immense and Curious Cannon—The
Largest Gun but one in the World.
A brass gun weighing 5,723 pounds, and
said to be the largest but one in the world,
has lntely arrived at New London, Conn. A
pnper of that town gives the following ac
count of it:
The ship Bowditch, which arrived at this
port on Wednesday last, brought from the
Sandwich Islands a large brass cannon, which
is a curiosity, on account of its aire and vari
ous inscriptions, and from its good preserva
tion and superior finish. How it ever reached
the fort at Honolulu, or Was landed there, we
can not say, but for many years it lay an in
cumbrance within the "inclosure, "having
been dismounted and spiked by the French
when they attempted the subjugation of the
Hawaiian Kingdom, years ago. Somo six
or seven years since a blacksmith attempted
to bore out the vent, and while performing
the work, the bit struck fire inside the gun
and blew out an old charge of powder that had
been in the gun for many yenrs. The explo
sion drove llio hit up from the vent, and it
passed through the workman's neck, inflict
ing a severe flesh wound.
The gun is believed to be of snperior
quality of nietn, and gives evidence in its
appearance mid workmutiship of the skill of
the founders. Being too large for use on tho
island, it was Eold by tho Government for

Inches; -vseight, 5,723 pounds. Each end is
adorned with elaborate fancy work, and on

origiually from France. The motto "The

a relic of the olden time, this venerable piece
of ordnance is an interesting object for the

sulted Tp.eaiment of the I'.vport ukate Coolies
A British colonist in Guiana has given tho
following evidence, published in a "blue
book." bv order of tho House of Commons,
respecting the treatment of the unfortunate
Coolies: "They are nil, both male and fe
male, indentured indiscriminate'.)- as agri
cultural laborers, with a liability to punish
ment by fine and imprisonment (free labor
ers!) tor not performing nve tnsKS oi tuirty-
two cents eacti, weekly, wiucn nicy are not
able to do. . I'nuscd to the rigid and labor
ious work required on sugar plantations, the
Coolie's diet, which consists wholly of rice,
unfits him for severe or continuous exer
tions. Besides this, the ordinance compels
the Coolie emigrant to work for fur loss
remuneration than he could obtain if he were
unshackled by an indenture. The returns
show that at present his earnings are scarcely
sufficient to' furnish him with the actual
necessaries of life.
The Happiness of Children. Hard be his

chance to love, to play, to exercise his im
agination and nfl'ectious, and he will bo
happy. Give him the conditions of health,
simple food, air, exercise, and a little variety
in his occupations, and he will be happy, aud

It is a good deal safer for him to invoke the

the former are not likely to take the trouble
