'It will be observed that it is proposed to
have three more wards, and that tho whole
city is divided without reference to old
boundaries and the numbers are entirely
changed, so as to render them as nearly as
poesible consecutive. The average nnmber
of votes will be about 1,400; in tbe Thir
teenth, however, there will be at least 1,800,
which will involve tbe necessity of a subdi
vision into election precincts. The Twen
tieth embraces all that part of Walnut Hills
within the corporation line, together with
that part of ionnt Auburn aastof Sycamore-street.
It will embrace a large terri
tory, but is sparsely populated, and contains
not more than 700 votes. It, likewise, lays
well for subdividing, when more densely
By this arrangement, twenty-three coun
cilmen must be elected nest Spring; and
should the members holding over, where two
are legislated into one ward, resign, there
will be several vacanties to fill.
With reference to the political complexion
of the new wards, it is impossible to form any
correct conjecture: but there certainly has
been no gerymaudering, as all parties as

lottery for tue beiiefit of the poor orphans.
The prize t j be drawn for is lion. William
Smith O'Brien's hat. A short sketch of the
old hat may not be uninteresting at this
Many of our readers will remember thtt
some eighteen months ago, the Irish patriot
paid our Queen City a short vi?it, and much
to the good taste ot air. u linen he very po
litely relumed to allow, of the least manifes
tation by tbe wwy of a pulilio reception.
While at tne uurnet tiouse .nr. ti linen
expressed a desire to provide himself with a
new hnt, and for that purpose, accompanied
by a friend, stepped across to Mr. Doild's
fashionable hat store, and, after, selecting one
to his taste, be requested Mr. Dodd, to "give
tho old one to the first poor, honest Irishman
who might couie in, as it was too good to
throw awny." But this hat, with the initials
" m. S. O'B," written with his own bnnd
en the linirg, was never destined to such an
uncertain fate. At this juncture one of his
escort, pot -wishing to sec that relic fall into
the hands that might perh-tps carelessly
throw it into the street, said: "Mr. O'Brien,
consider roc that poor, honest Irishman I
will take care of that hnt." This remark.
coming from the source it did, rather sur
prised Mr. O'B.; but the hat was handed over
as requested, aud tlio party returned 'o tne
hotel. In tho course of the day Mr. O'Brien
was introduced to very many of opt most
prominent citizen?, and had a drive through
tho principal streets of the city, over to
Mount Auburn and out to Clifton; had also
a pressing invitation 'rom Governor Chase to
visit the Sttto Capitol, aud on the return of
the party to tue city, witnessed with great
satisfaction the performance of one our best
Bteam bre engiues; at the close ot which,
Hon. P. Mallon delivered an appropriate ad
dress, and was responded to by tbe illustri
ous visitor in a most eloquent manner, and
giving his countrymen most excellent ad-
.t i r.o "linnim. that tlir.v wmilit nnti,iMA in
the future, as they have been in the past,
good American citizens."
But, while going to the depot, an Inquiry
was made if any thing remarkable had hap
peued to him during his ownership of the
old hat. "Oh, no, he replied, "nothing
worth rclatinc." but understood him to say
that he wore it during his last days at Vnn
Dieman'8 Land, and since that time has
traveled with me nearly round the world.
He then expressed a ded're to know "why
we took such a liking t hi3 old hat." He
was then told for the first time, and asked, if
he remembered while at Clifton that morn
ing of looking over Uillcreek Valley, and
being shown a large brick building and a
little church beside it, "that," said we, "is an
Orphan Asylum, containing nearly 400
orphans, who are clothed, fed and
educated by the contributions of the Cath
olics of this place, without any aid front
cither city, couuty or State." And when he
was told that he must not bo surprised to
read in the Irish papers before long, that big
old hut wa3 Bold in Cincinnati, at tho first
f.ir held for the benefit of the Orphans, for a
sum not less than $500, aud that such a re
sult wonld accomplish two good thing';
first, the money will help to feed and make
glad the hearts of the poor and fatherless;
and then it will be a satisfaction for those
English Lords, who would liked to have had
your head, to know how the people of
America valued your old hat. At tli.s re
mark, his moistened eyes could scarcely
prevent the tear. The hat is now on the
Sisteis' Table, and it is to be hoped that all
friends of the Orphan, and admirers of Mr.
O'Brien, will patronize the old hat.

Naturalized Chizens and Secession.
To Ids KMore of the Doi'p Prw ;
There is one view of tho secession subject
which stems to have escaped your keen and
vigilant pen; that is, the duty of naturalized
citizens residing in the Southern States.
Having sworn to support tho Constitution
and laws of tbe United Statee, it is very clear
they csn not copeistently follow the .Seces
sionists. On the contrary, it is their duty to
resist all attempts to subvert the lata of the
United States. But in doing this, they be
come amenable to the laws of the State in
which they resido, as 60on as sho makes her
exit from the I'nion.
In the event of secession, are naturalized
citizens residing in the seceding States ab
Folved from their obligations to the. L'uiteJ
States? If absolved from their oath, in what
condition are they? Can they look to tho
stursand stripes for protection, or do they
again become aliens nnd su'njucts of a foreign
power? If the compact bet-.veen the alien
and the Gotaernment is broken, and the
naturalized citizen is released from his obli
gations, in like manner is tbe Government
free from any duty to him. Ho can no
longer claim an "epistle'' from Secretary
Cnss; Lcnce be is without a country, with
out a government, without a protector, and
perhaps without any rights which other
white men are bound to respect.
These are questions in which yonr corre
spondent is interested, but in his brain they
are somewhat "muddled," nnd he appeals to
you for a lucid and intelligent solution ofthe
Artemus Ward's Criticism or Othello and
ArtcmuB Ward thus gives his views of
r-dwin forreat s acting (u Othello:
Presently Old Ed cum out. The play was
Otheller or More of Venise. Othcller was
was writ bv Wru. Shakspecr. The scene is
laid in Veniss. Otheller was a likely
man k was a gineral in the Veniss army.
He eloped with Desdemony. a darter of the
Hon Mister Brabantio, who represented ono
of the back districts in the veneshun
legislnter. Old Brobantio was ns mad as
thunder at this & tore round considerable,
but finally cooled down, tellin Otheler
however, that Desdemony come it over
her Per, & and that ho had better look out
or she'd come it over him likewise.
Mr. k Mrs. Otheller git along very com
fortable like for a spell. She is sweet-tempered
and luvin a nice, sensiblo female,
never gnin in for he-male conventions, green
cotton umbroHers and pickled beats. Othel
ler is a good provider, and thinks all the
world of b is wife. She has a lazy time of it,
the hired girl doinall thecookin and washin.
Desdemony, in fact, don't have to git the
water to wash ber own hands with. But
low cuss named Ingo, who I blecve wanted tn
git Otheller out of his snug government
birth, now goes to work and upsets the
Othcller family in the most outrujus stile.
Iago falls in with a branelees youth named
Roderigo, and wins nil his money at poker.
(Iago alicrs plays foul.) He thus got money
enurf to carry out bis onprincipled skteui.
Mike Cnssio, a Irishman, is selected os a tool
by Iago. Mike was a clever feller k orficer
in Otheller's army. He liked his tods too
well, howsever, k they floored him, as they
huvo .many oiuerpromisin young men. Iago
injuces Mike to driuk with him, Iago slyly
throwin his whisky over his Bhouldor. Mike
gets as drunk as abilcd owl k allows that
can lick a yard lull or tho Veneshun fancy
before breakfast, without swe:itin a hair.
He meets Hoderigo and "proceeds for to
smash him. A feller named Monlnno un
dertakes to slap Cassio, when that infat
ootnti rl per-oii runs his sword into him.
That niistu-ililo man, Iago, pretend to
vevv fjivv to fee. Mike conduck himeelf
this" v-uy. k undertakes to smooth tbe thing
over lo Oih- ili'.r, who rushes in with a drawn
.wont X w.tnu to know what s up. Iago
i runnii.ty tells his story, k Othrllcr tefls
Mike that he thinks a good deal of him, but
be can't train to more in his regiment.
Desdemony sympathizes with poor Mike,
and intercedes for him with Otheller. Iao
makes him bleeve she docs this because sue
thinks more of Mike than she does of hls
self. Otheller swallers logo's lyiu tail,
goes to niakin a noosenee of hisself giurally.
He worries poor Desdemony terrible by
vile insinuations, k finally smothers her
del with a piller. Mrs. Iago tonu s in just
as Otheller has finished the fowl deed
give himtits right k left, showin him lint
he has been orfully gulled by her miserable
cuss ot a husband. Iago cuius in, k his wife
commences rnkin him down also, when
stubs her, Oiheller jaws him a spell & then
cuts a small hole in his stummicl: vith
sword. Iago pints to Desdemoi 's deth
bed k goes orf with a sardonic suiile onto
bis countenance. Otheller tells the people
that be has dun the State sum service, aud
they know it: axes them to do so fair a thing
as they cau for him under the circumstances,
and Bills hisself with a fish-knife, which
tBe most sensible thing he can do. This is
bieef skednle of the synopsis of tbe play.
Edwin Forrest is a grate actor. I thort
saw Otheller before me all the time ho was
actin 4 and when the curtin fell I found
spectacles was still mistcned with salt water
which bad run from my eyes while poor
Desdemony was dyin. Betsy Jane Betsy
