Tho people of Western PennHylvnnit'
continue to agitate the question of pris
on reform. At a meeting recently held
in Pittsburgh, and called for the dis
cussion of tho general subject, the lend
ing citizens of that section gave vent to
their several views and theories. The
main current of opinion, an exchange
pays, ran entirely against the solitary
or Pennsylvania system no v in vogue
iu that State. As tnis meeting was
called nt the instance and in compliance'
with the request of the commissioner ap
pointed by the Governor at the late ses
sion of the Legislature to vi.-it the pris
ons of the commonwealth and report to
the Legislature upon their condition,
with a view of ascertaining what chan
ges arc nccpssary.ln prison discipline,
its conclusion cannot fail of having
great weiglUand practical bearing.
A Singular Decision.
The Judge of Probate at North Provi
dence, It. I., cannot, it seems to us, be
overstocked cither with gjod common
senso or legal ability, judging from the
following case. A case came before his
Honor not long since, w'lcreln certain
parties,rciativcs6f the respond jnt, pray
ed that some suitable person m.ght be
appointed guardian over his estate. Ac
cording to tho Providence Bulletin the
respondent is an old gentleman who
is well known, and who, through a
long life of industry and self-denial, has
accumulated a large property, mostly in
real estate, ire is seventy-six years ol
age. The evidence of the petitioners
went to show that the respondent had,
at one time, demanded rent of a tenant
after it had been once pi.id ; that at an
other time he watered his hoiso in the
afternoon of a certain day; forgetting
that he had watered him in the uiorii-
inir of the same day: that at another
time, when he and his family were go
ing "down the river," ho forgot tho
time tho cars started ; at another time lie
gave one of his family S3 to pay for the
hire of a horse and carria e, and did
not ask foi tho change for nearly half an
hour afterward : at another time ho lei
his wife, (second wife) nave a burial lo.
for one of her childrca that had died
r-nd received for itonlySU, wlun it was
worth somothinj'more : at another time

struction ofa pair of steps ; that another
time he made out a a rent bill for
when it ought to have been $0,0), and
lost 60 cents. Tho respondent showed
that he had been careful of his proper
ty ; that tiie petitioners were the only
persons who had reduced its amount
in any material way, as it had been
spent for their education and establish
ment in business; and lie declared that
they ware hanging about him like vul
tures, determined to share his propsity--which
is considerable without waiting
for his death, and that the pending at
tempt to divest him of tho ca:e of his
affairs was caused by his refusal to turn
over that property lopctitio lers by d ed
of trust, or iu som; other manner. The
Court, greatly to tho public surprise, ap
pointed a guardian, but the matter will
go to the Supreme Court. The trial
ercat"d muc i public interest and sym
pathy for the old man.
EULOCUUS ON TlIADDEUS STEVENS.
Eulogies were pronounced in the House
of Representatives on Thursday upon
Tbaddevs Stevens. Mr. Dicker of Penn

death. Elaborate eulogies were then

says, is named Joshua Plumb. A few
days ago ho entered a restaurant in
Hudson, N. Y., and offered to cat all
that any one would pay for. The chal
lenge having been accepted, he dispos
ed of the following articles : Ten pieces
of apple pie, six con cakes, a quarter of
a pouud of crackers, six cups of peanuts,
thirty pickled clams ; four lemons, an
ounce of candy, and twj bowls of clam
soup. Ho then drank six tumblers of
water, and offered to eat a hundred raw
oysters. No one doubted his aLility to
accomplish tho feat, but no ono was
willing to pay for the oysters, and so ho
went off grumbling that he wa3n'thnlf

The politican p: lice of Paris consists
of 540 agents, from all CMintrie3 and o'"
both sexes. Many of then are Corsicaus,
the inhabitants of tuts .lttlo isle develop
ing a remarkable talent for intriguing
in politics. The cordial hatred which
every Parisian cherishes for this profes
sion makes it rather necessary that
foreigners alio jld he encouraged toentei
into it. Their chief is the Count de L.
Grange, who himself is subject to tho
orders of Pielre, a will , gracious and
treacherous man of the world, ofc jursc,
of immense value to the maintenance ol
any empire. Members ol tho c rps are
disseminated as thoroughly over the
globe's lace as the Jesuit? used to be,and
are as minute and faithful in the.r re
ports. They send in at regular inter
vals accounts of th jopinions and uoings
ofpolitic.il refugee 4, and of diplotni's,
north, sou h. easi and west. Jn P.ir.s
no limine;1 is wttho.it at least a dozen su

under the g isc of friendship, they often

Four o'clock in th morning is tae po
pular hour with those gentlemen for
their calls. They open your bed cur
tains, command you to put on your
uiolucj an go with them, and you may
have been louiccd up a month buioroyou
.mow that you wero arrested for some
trivial remark in a store or hotel. The
pay of tno saoalteriu is dlJJm a;!ily ia
&oid, either in France or abroad. When
the Emperor has decided tq on leaving
for any point oiusddc of Pans or his em
pire, a luitnb rof thesj agents are sent
anead to manufacture op.nion, and to
prej-are the way for demonstrations of
eiunits aain. In such cases, all tin ir ex
tra expenses are paid by the govern
ment. So it. is no wonder that alt t e
items of one of Napoleon's journeys foot
up a roanu sum.
About lifty of these mouchards arc
stationed tit New York and Was .ington
and some of them have access to the best
houses in the metropolis and the capital.
Pile Corsicaus are soi-disant Italian mu
sic teachers or linguistic prolessors. And
these intrude for their thievish purposes
almost eversvnore hey wish. They
usually have a wife in almostevery city
tney nave ninauiteu, and are as irre
deemably vicious us men can be. Now
and then one has entered the business
after a -ong course of crime in his own
country. France is the European re-
luge for all such rubbish, and turns it to
the best account.
When the Paris exhibition opened in
1807, about a dozen of these niouchards
were recaiieu liom jnow xorlt to watch
the Amcricausiu the French caplt d,and
to sometimes icinuiy warn th.in 11 they
expressed too louUly their opinions.
oNapoieon uiu not lancy arresting many
American sovereigns. But the poor
Prussians were often locked up without"
hardly tho slightest provocation. To
praise Bismark even, or malign the
French reputation for military bearing,
was to introduce one's seifto u Gallic
mouchard. One Prussian who cou.d not
speak a word of French was locked up
lor several days, simply because he jost
led a French army ollicer who would not
move oat of his way. He coi Id get no
interpreters near liini to make an ex
planation, an . his case scented hopeless,
until ho v as at last brought before court
and dismissed, because ' ho was so stu
pid as not to speak French."
1) tiring ono of tho visits of the Em
peror to the exhio.tlo.i, an agent ot a
foicigu linn had occasion to cxh.hit to
Napoleon, through the chief of the poli
ce de surete, M. Llroy, u Remington
shot cane. A few days later the few
sain. iles remaining on tlio show case
wore bought by M. Pietri, nn i one of
h.s special agents asked the foreigner io
order ono hundred and sixiy-llve of
them, with winch to arm the Empe

well as sina I paekot pistols, are proni

OF A aUHAT,
Some years .co a yountrman, respect
ably connected, and the t-olosupp rl ofa
widowed mo her and only sister, was
convicted of fogery,and tcnieuced to ex
piate his alleged crime in prison, lie
was a cleric in a dry goods store, and
was Ueiiuently called on to as.-lstthe
cashier in li.s duties. O o day a check
l'o i $40) was p e.-ented at the buik an I
c.sliel by t.n uukiunvn icrsm. lit.
was drawn in th j name of the linn tor
whom tlu licensed was working and
w s in his Handwriting.
Titer j could be no doubt of the fact.
He him&clf admitted that the cheek
was drawn by him; but. he could recol
lect nonooi the circumstances attending
it, tit d could otl'er no explanation of t lie
matter. The boolcs oi tho house show
ed no accountof it. Under these cir
cumstances he was arrested and convic
ted. Two persons, however, behoved
iu nis innocence his mother and sister
and only these two! Bowed down with
shame, and helpless to vindicate his
honor, he died shortly aiterwad. In
less than a y.ar tlio mother followed her
son: and th? sister, left aloue in the
world dos ned by former fii nds, f-hun-ned
by acquaintances, struggled bravety
in her toil lor subsistence. She became
a seamstress, and in this way supported
horse f. Every day for the last live
years she has been at work in an cstab
iishement on Canal street.
Wednesday afternoon tlio lawyer who
prosecuted the case was sent to write
the will of n man at the point of death,
in this will he bequeathed his property
to the sister, mid i-mbodicd in the in
strument a full confession of the forgery
committed eight ye ns ago. Ho was the
cashier ol the linn, now grown rich. It
was by his direction tne draft was pre
pared lie purposely omitted the entry
and availed ..imself of tiie proceeds.
Now aftet the lapse of eight years a
tardy reparation is attempted to be
made, But it will not restore life to the
dead, or extract the bitter stiner of sor
row and l rii f so long endured. It is
one ol the strange events which ma c
up the stoty ofa life. Stung by remorse
at the brink ol the crave, his last act in
life is to vindicate the memory of the
dead and give comfort to the living. It
may palliate his crime before the trlbu
ual which, instead of human justice,
will pass upon his crime. A'. O. Pic-
