, TII3 LOST BRE1STPIN.
1 a&t Week, s. lady op town or rather it
tu when tip town UvhI to be loet a v1
tulle breastpin, la vtla h mourned,
i a vain h husband offered a reward fur
the lost jewel. Tears or money, would not
liW it Uoi. It was lost. lost in the
treet the busy streets of this over crow
ded city, where it might be picked up
bj tome of the early chiffoniers or crushed
in the dirt by aome late traliipcr. It Was
a causa of grief, bat there ore deeper
'causes, as we ahull see by and by.
"Advertiso," said the business man.
"Who reads advertisements," said No
faith. "Try it," said slope, "somebody will,
and you may get back your lost Diam
ond" Hope was right Somebody does read
edvcrtwcuicnts No faith to the contrary
notwithstanding The 1I jewel had not
lwen trampled in the dust, and had not
fallen into the hands of the chiffonier. It
was in the hands of one willing to return
it to the owner, and anxious to learn whom
he could mako happyily restoring the lost
treasure. The offer of a reward had no
charms for him; he Was himself pure gold,
and not to bo charmed by golden offers.
The lost will be restored to its owner.
But another lost article, lost by another wo
man, near tho same place, will never be res
tored. About the same time that the breastpin
was lost in the street, a little boy, about
three years old, the last impression of the
imige of his lost father the fifth token to
his widowed mother, came up from his
plpyiu the street, to his cheerless garret
home, and sought for a mother's solace, for
he was siok. Vainly she strovo to put him
off, or keep him juiet, for to her now every
minuto was worth more than hours once
were she toiled to live and find food for
It was more than she could do, and when
the found her child was really sick, she
shuddered at the thought of timo lost. It
wss a jewel she never would find again. But
that was not the worst loss, the child was
lost. That insidious, loathsome disease,
sm illpox, that we are constantly importing,
among 0' her "uot dutiable" articles, had
seised upon that child; and in three days
he was not the sweet, fond, bright eyed
little boy, that every passer-by admired,
tut an object of pity. The mother bent
over him, until she could stand no
longer She was exhausted sick.
A friend wrote to the Secretary of a
benevolent institution, begging him to
"come and see this distressed American
widow's family the mother sick, and child
dying, and four others without food, fire, or
means to live."
Littlo conld the loss of a breastpin com
fan with such a loss as this, and much less
would tho offer of a reward bring back the
He could not go that day what had he
to give if he did go, but words his funds
were all gone; and the next morning another
messenger came and said:
Olyjlittle brother died last night, my moth
er it quite nnwel), and we have nothing in
the house to eat my mother has ju&t paid
out all the money brother earns, for rent,
and she does not know what she is to do;
she has no money to pay for burying the
child, and has sent me here to ask you to
assist her once more. She wants to bury
him by the side .of my father, in York Bay
"I am sorry, but you must tell your
mother that we are out of money, and still
have a great many living children to take
cure of, and I don't see any way but for
her to let the City pay the funeral ex pon
tes." There was a tear in that boy's eye, as
lie turned away; for he thought not only of
the dead brother, but of the living ones,
and bis mother, and he wondered how all
of them were to live. But he went away,
idly, to that desolate garret room, the
home of the dead and the living. The
toother was a sensible woman; she yielded
to necessity, and sent at once to the Aims-
House for help to bury her child.
The door bad hardly closed upon the
boy, as bo left the Secretary's office, when
a gentleman came in, pocket book in hand,
with these cheerful words on his tongue:
"I have come to leave you a little dona
tion. I bad the fortune to find a lost
breastpin, and the gentleman insisted upon
giving me tho reward, which I refused,
but finally told him I would take it for
tome of your poor American widows and
here is ?5."
The secretary started op and said, "Frank,
give nic my hat Sir, I thank you I
have a place for this I am glad that
somebody lost a breastpin, -with a stone in
it I wish somebody else would lose one
I wish everybody would lose a stone out
of their breast, or a pin out of their pnrse-
The owner of that pin is not half as
glad as I am. I was told last night to 'trust
in Providence. It is a prompt paymaster;
I thank yon."
. ' And away he went down Green st., and
along Spring, walking as though running
from Death instead of going towards it,
Up winding, narrow, crooked stairs, till his
head touched the bare roof boards, and
there was the sad scene. There lay the
corpse, til unlike the thing it was almost
unlike a human being.
, Reader! do yon know what happiness is?
Did you ever see a mother and children,
with a dead son and brother lying before
them, happy? We havel We have seen
them shed tears of joy not grief. Tears
that to the full heart are rood. Tears that
make those who shed them" as well as those
who see them shed, all happy. Tears that
would make you glad that somebody lost
a breastpin. Ar. Y. T
Fusion of Whigs and Democrat!.
Attempts are now being made, through
out the length and breadth of our land to
effect, if it can possibly be don, . a fusion
or union of the old parties. ' But how, we
ask, can this be effected 1 Will Whigs,
the admirers and supporters of Clay,
W fibster, Filmobg and others, be sedu
ced into it by syreq songs of their vilifi
ers, and aid in placing them in power to
the exclusion of a party who look upon these
statesmen as great and good men ? It is
to be hoped not, for Whigs have not yet
forgotted the old cries of Gnlpbinism, Pub
lie Plunder and old Federalists, which have
been hurled at them for years, by this same
party which now professes so much love
and attachment for them ; and who hare
so suddenly discovered that their party
was both honest and patriotic. A discov
ery nevor made until the American party
taught them that they were not, the only
available party in the country. They
found that unless they could form an alli
ance with the shattered remnant of the
Whig party they were inevitably doomed
to the lesser light in the political firma
ment of our couutry. This led them to
look abroad for aid, so as to increase their
rapidly decreasing numbers. To this end
they have not only formed alliances with
foreigners and catholics, but now call upon
intelligent thinking men to aid them in
defeating the American party, and for ought
wo know cause the overthrow of the Union.
They may for awhtlo succeed in decoying
a few of them into their net, bat when
they see what uses are being made of them,
they will desert the sinking ship.
We copy the following on the subject
from tho Philadelphia Ntiet :
The Democratic party, which struck
down ruthlessly the great Whig- leaders,
Clay and Webster, vituperated Fitt,
mors, and dishonored Ciayton, has be
come sensible of the deep ignominy of those
nets, and as the Arch Duke of Austria, af
ter, the treach erous murder of Ilichard
Coeur de Lion, met before tho walls of Al
giers the powers of France, to make amends
for his barbarity to the posterity of his
victm, by asserting the claims of Prince
Arthi'U, so the Locofoco press has come
to the aid of the Democratic Whig Execut
tivo Committee ! A late repentance is
better than lo die and make no sim !
But what a strange alliance ; stranger than
that of France and England at tho com
mand of Pope Innocence, of yore, or be
tween the same powers by the wi'es of
Louis Napoleon in these latter days!
The very papers which had the life of
lenry Clay printed in the shape of a bot
tle, and always intermingled their tirades
upon that great man with the rattle of the
dice box and the shuffle of the cards, which
openly pronounced Daniel Webster a lech
erous drunkard; Fillmore a miserable cheat,
and Clayton the weakest of stassman, now
nave the dithonerd remains of the Whig
party in their keeping, bottled up as snakes
and lizards are in apothecaries' shops, to
be uncorked whenever any particlar object
is to be attained! Instead of the old whig
mendacity, Galphiuism, publio plunder,
and dangerous Federalism, wo arc now told
by the Pennsylvanian of its bold enuncia
tion of truth, its admirable vindication of
Justice, and its ennobling morality! What
change has come over the spirit of our
neighbors dream; or does it accept the oth
er horn of the dilemma, and confess that
all its former tirades were libels, or will it
place itself upon the position, that since
the Democratic party allied itself to Whig'
cry, the weaker vessel is raised to the mnr
tial grade, and that the truth, justice and
morality of the Whigs aro reflected from
the known and acknowledged honesty of
the party which public sentiment is driving
from power in every nook and corner of
tills glorious Confederacy; which New Eng
land in a body has repudiated; whioh Vir
ginia we know is 'rebuking as we write;
from which the whole South and the bound
less West are falling!
And why this alliance? What are the
terms of the compact? With hat does
Democracy endow Whiggcry, and what
plights Whiggery to Democracy? Nothing
but a mutual hate; Nothing is brought to
the altar but a mutual vow to oppose Amer
ican Principles, as maintained in the Con
stitution of the United States, and endor
sed by Washington, Jefferson, Jack
son, and all the most illustrious of our he-
rocs and statesman. An union so unholy
must be wretched it carries its own seeds
of wrangling, embittered controversy, and
final divorce The American causo cannot
be ondangered by any such combination
It has, as Amalicar, the Carthagenian, used
to say, three lions to devour the power of
Rome, and theso are emblazoned on our
State shield, being "Virtue Liberty and
Independence." We neither fear thi
Democratic Whig alliance, nor all their mer
cenary foreign aids all.
All the movements of old parties suit us
exactly. 1 bey are showing their band
openly tbey take pride in their alliance,
aud rejoice in their fusion. We oan whip
the combination, as we did on the fint of
May, whenever the occasion offers, and
next fall we will show the newly married
couple that "false blood to false blood join
ed' begets nothing but abortions!
DESPERATE MURDER IN DELA
George Parker, a negro of desperate
character, living near Dover, Delaware, got
into a quarrel, on Wednesday week, with
bis wife, who w as sick, and became so en
raged that he seised a gun and fired at her
nurse, shattering her arm dreadfully. Sev
eral whito men, who hurried to the house,
were compelled to retreat to tho woods to
save their lives, as he attacked them with
savage ferooity. His subsequent conduct
is thus related by the Milford Beacon :
"This negro not being satisfied with his
evening's exploit, proceeded after night to
the house of Mr. George Sluughter, in the
same neighborhood knocked at the door,
and, on its be ing opened by Mr.
Slaughter himself, he raised a gun to fire,
and that gentleman only escaped with bis
lifoby slamming the door too in his face
and fastening it. Tho desperado being
thus disappoiu'ed, and a thirst for blood
still raging in his heart, went to his own
dwelling and set it on fire, the light of which
drew some of the neighbors to the scene ;
but, before any assistance could bo reuder
ed, he had actually cut tho throats of two
of his own children, one of whom ho had
threw into the Are, where it was consum
ed, and the other ho threw into the yard.
By this time a posse of men had arrived
from Dover to arrest the negrof who still
held posession of bis gun and amunition,
aud, after firing several ineffectual shots at
him, the villain, taking his turn, also fired,
but without effect ; one of the party, ta
king advantage of the opportunity, while
the negro's gun was unloaded, advanced
within a few paces of him and fired, near
ly the whole charge taking effect in the
negro's face and forehead, but without
bringing him to the ground, merely stag-
a m . t TT
goring nun tor tne moment,, rie was
however felled to the ground, secured and
taken to jail."
Advice to Parents. Bo ever gentle
.a . i i r i t . .
with the children uoa nns given you;
watch over them constantly; reprove them
earnestly but not in anger. In the forci
ble longuoge of Scripture, "Bo not bitter
against them.' Ycs they arc good boys
I onco heard a kind father sav, 'I talk to
them very much, but do not like to beat
my children the world will beat them.'-
It was a beautiful thought, though not el
egantly expressed. Yes, there is not one
child in the circle around the table, health
ful and happy as they look now, on whose
head, if longer spared, the storm will not
beat. Adversity may wither them sick
ness may fade them a cold world frown
on them, but amid all, let memory carry
them back to a home where the law of kind
ness reigned, where tho mother's reproving
eye moistened with a tear, and the father
frowned "more in sorrow than in anger.
Give your children fortune without edu
cation, and at least one half will go down
to the tomb of oblivion perhaps ruin.
Give them an education, and they will be
a fortune to themselves and their country.
It is an inheritance worth more than gold;
for it buys true honor they can never
spend nor loose it j and through life it ev
er proves a friend in death a consolation.
Secret Catholic Council! We learn
from our Baltimore exchanges that Arch
bishop Kenrick recently convoked in that
city a secret council of the Bishops of his
province where business of high impor
tance was transacted by the help of a doz
en of pro-consuls of his Holiness in the
Uuited States. We agree with a cotempO'
rary that as long as the high represents
tives of the Pope in America hold secret
meetings, no politician or editor has t
word iu condemnation, but when Amer
icans unite in private councils, loud are
the imprecations against them, and they
are called mid -night assassin, mur
derers, traitors, Christless, Godless, and
ruffians! We hope that the Catholic press
will have no more abuses for the Know
Nothings, as wa believe they have the
samo right as fonijn Bithopx to meet se
cretly in any part of their native soil.
