Miss i :
A young lady living not overa dozen leagues
from Buffalo, when at home, but being edu
cated at a fashionable seminary east of ns,
last ween received a letter from Her mother
with the usual marks of mourning upon it
black, edged and sealed with black. She was
almost overcome, and fainted twice before she
could summon courage to diapel the fearful
suspense that waa brooding over her. Finally
she opened it, and therein written was the in
formation that ber brother a young man
about eighteen, bad died suddenly from an
attack of oholera-morbus she sunk down in
flood of tears, while her fair companions
grouped around, sadly endeavored to console
her, bat in vain. "Poor follow," said she,
with a succession of sobs, "my brother my
dear and blessed brother ob," said she, for
the first time raising her head since the sad
news arrived addressing the weeping and
sympathising girls around her "to think how
unfortunate and his mersohaum just begin
ning to oolor so beautifully 1" There wag no
consolation for such poignant woe as this, and
the girls left her alone to her sobs and the
teudor reoolleotion of her dear and only
brother, and this scarcely tinted tobacco

JfcSA very reprehensible praottoe prevails
among some of the banking-houses in this city
and elsewhere. We mean the stamping
the same and business of the firm on banknotes
which pass through their hands. A moment's
consideration wil 1 show the danger
the credit of houses indulging in the praotice,
and we wish to suggest that auoh bankera
may render themselves liable for ooun erfait
notes, by the imitation ef their stamp by
ooanterfeiters. The stamp is a simple stencil,
hastily marked on the note in such a way that
it would be perfeotly easy to imitate it so sue
esssfully that no witness before a jury eonld
tell the difference between it and the genuine.
We do not 'think thata prudent banker will
imagine that the notoriety given to his name
and business in this manner, should weigh
an instant against the risk which he ia oer
tainly running in placing such a stamp npon
aback note. Independent of this, It is a re
prehensible practioe, beoause it defaces the
note, whioh ahould not be done. Philadtlphia

A Richmond correspondent of tha Patara.
burg Exprtu says:
The Virginia Central brought down on its
train of yesterday afternoon a rare bird of
the eagle species. At the invitation of a
friend I visited this natural curiosity to-day.
it is oi enormous aizo, resembles tho common
grey eagle ao frequently caught in Virginia,
but is bicip'toua or doublo-headed and in
this its peculiarity consists. The two heads
are clearly defined, and seem to be perfect
in ell respects. It receives its food with the
same facility in either beak, and apparently
hears and sees alike through all ita eyes and
ears. It was captured when a mere fledgling,
near Luray, Page County, by Mr. Joannes
Schwartzberger, and has been carefully nur
tured and fed by himself and family ever
sinoe. Mr. 8. has disposed of this curious
bird to the Austrian Consul at New York,
who intends presenting it to tho Emperor
Francis Joseph. A more appropriate present
could not be made his Royal Highness, and
he will, doubtloss, prizo it highly. The
national emblem of his vast empire you
will recollect is a double-headed eagle, but
we will venture the assertion that this is the
first live specimen ever Been. It goes to New
York this afternoon by the Adams' Express,
and will be sent out thence by one of the
eorly out-going steamers.

to tht English Government on the subject of
maureatment oi American seamen by American
captains in English ports, brings also to the
Courrier rf.w talt Unit a copy of the Conrriir
ile la Girond, which relates an instance of sav
age eruelty on board of an American vessol at
Bordeaux, In France. The Amorican shin
Abby Blancliard bos recently been burnt at
that port. During the fire something like a
mutiny broke out on board, in the course of
whioh " tbe captain broke tbe riba of one sailor
with a bar or iron, while the mate struck
another sailor with an ax and cut off the toes
of his right foot." A French fireman, who re
monstrated against these brutal acts, waa also
attacked by these ruffians, but, thanks to his
eonrngo ana strength, saved nunsolf, and con
tributcd to their immediate arrest. The ulti
mate shame and harden of tuah infamous acts
aa this must fall. M Wn ho.VA ulramle .Vinain
on the ship owners and merobants who oommit
their vessels and property to the charge of vile
and incompetent persons, without one thought
of their own heavy responsibility for tbe treat
ment of American sailors, and for the honor of
tne American flag iVeio York Timet.

As her relations with Austria and Germany
grow daily more and more complicated, Prus
sia begins to find it important to put the su
preme authority of the State npon some basis
more durable and solid than a Regency. . Al
most the whole royal family of Prussia, or at
least tne Brothers and sisters of. King Frederick
William iv, erenow assembled at Jim to con
sult nnon the disnnaal nf lha nrnwn. Tha P.m.
press Dowager of Russia, the Grand Dachets of
Meeklenburg, the Princess Frederio of the
Netherlands the Prinoe Regent, and tht Prinoe
Cbarles or rrussia, made up tbe family party.
Tbe King's Physicians declare that though His
Majesty looks stouter and better than before
his journey to Italy, his malady has made ter
rible progress. Paralysis of several limbs ia
constantly looked for, and the celebrated oc
ulist, Dr. Graefe, has announced that there is
reason to fear that the King will shortly become
quit blind. It is a question, therefore, if im
mediate aianifioanse in the aspect of European
affairs, whether the Sovereignty of Prussia
shall pass at once into the keeping ef the
Prince Regent, or be transferred from bim to
bis son Frederiok William, the aon-in-law of

The Story of Quaker Dissensions.
An old correspondent, of Quaker descent,
writes to tbe New York Pott : "'
Much gratuitous sympathy, methlnki, is ef
late manifested by the press at the new divis
ion said to bave lately taken piece in the
Society of Friends, or Quakers. The division
created by the Hicksite, or Unitarian aohiam,
did not take place at all .In the New England
yearly meeting; and although the. hat been
tome secession from the Society,, there baa
been no division seriously toaffeot the two main
bodies Unitarian and Orthodox.' The Wil
borite secession was at first from tht New Eng
land yearly meeting not from any disagree
ment in dootrine, but only ia discipline. It is
these secoders small as they are in numbers
that have again divided, ahd it does cot at all
affect tbe main body of Orthodox Friends,
from whom they, as they themselves confess,
"came out." Iam told by a New York Quaker
who attended the Orthodox yearly meetings at
New York and Newport, that there was great
Christian love and unity In both, particularly
in the New England meeting, where the will
and conceits and wisdom of tbe creature bowed
to the spirit of that Gospel, so divinely taught
by Its great Author in tbe beginning, before its
simplicity was obscured by the forms and oere
raonics ef man's invention.
A Timely Suggestion.
A Southern journalist, who was once em
ployed in the arduous duties of taking the
cenBUfl, to avoid many of the inconveniences
attending npon that duty,' makes the follow
ing timely suggestions for I860;
Now, what we suggest is, that each farmer
this full, as he gathers his crops, shall keep
something liko an accurate account of the
quantity and value of the samej and, if he
will take the trouble to make out a statement
of the names and ogee of his family; the
number of acres of land, cleared and tim
bered; the number and ages of his servants:
the number and value of his horses and
mules; the number of bales of cotton, bar
rels ol corn, bushels of wheat, oats, rye, bar
ley, potatoes, Ac, and the value of each, and
leave it in some place where any member of
the family who may boat home when the
Deputy Marshal shall call, can readily get
hold of it, it will save time to all concerned,
and very greatly assist to make the census
returns perfect, complete and satisfactory.
A Finr Party. reople poured, in. Tho
rooms began to swarm. Tnero was a warm
odor of kid gloves, scent bags and heliotrope.
There was aa incessant fluttering of fans and
bobbing of heads. One hundred gentlemen
said, "ifov? warm it is!" One hundred ladies
of the highest fashion answered, "Very."
Fifty young rrei who all wore coats, collars
and waistcoats that seemed to have been
made in the lump, and all after tho same
pattern, stood speechless about the rooms,
wondering what under heaven to do with
their hands.' Fifty older married men, who
had solved that problem, folded their hands
behind their backs, aud . beamed vaguely
about, nodding their heads whenever thoy
recognized any other head, and saying, "Good
evening," ana then after a little more beam
ing, "How are yer?" Waiters pushed about
with trays covered with little glasses of lem
onade and port-sangaree, which offered favor
able openings to the unemployed young men
and the married gentlemen, who- crowded
along with a glass in each hand, frightening
all the ladicB, and begging everybody's par
don. ...

Happiness op CHatRBK. Children may
teach as one blessed, one enviable art tbt art
of being easily happy. Kind nature has given
to them that useful power of aocomroodotlon to
oironmatanoes which compensates for many
external disadvantages, and it is only by inju
dicious management that it ia lost. Give him
but a moderate portion of food and kindness,
and the peasant's ohild Is happier that the
auB.e s; tree rrom artinoiti wants, unsauatea ny
Indulgence, all nature ministers to his pleasure;
he oan carve out felicity from a bit of hasel
twig, or fish for it successfully in a puddle.' I
lore to hear tht boisterous joy of a troop of
ragged urohins, whose cheap playthings are
nothing more than mad, snow, sticks, or oyster
shells; or to watch the quiet enjoyment of a
half-clothed, half-washed fellow of four or fire
years old, who sits, with a large, rusty knife
and a lump of bread and baoon, at bis father's
door, and might move tbe envy of an alder

Judge Halibar ton has made his maiden
speech. When he arose the House: was
hushed in silence in a moment, but, hit speech
was not a success, and it is clear cow that
Mr. Haliburton, racy writer as he is, Is no
orator.- The characteristic of Mr. Halibur
ton' works ia rollicking fun and humor, but
there was nothing of this sort in hit speech.
It was just such a speech as any country
gentleman might have made. The appear
ance of Mr. Haliburton is that of a sturdy
old gentleman farmer, utterly unlike what
from reading his works you would imagine
him to be. He is, according to Don, only
sixty-three years old, but ha looks older.
We should, from his appearance, take him to
be at least soventy. ' ' "'.
, "j3TAn exchange gives the following ns
the origin of the use of the- thistle at the
national emblem of Scotland: ,
' When : the Danes from England invaded
Scotland, they availed themselves of the
pitch darkness of night to attack the Scottish
forces unawares. On approaching the Scot
tish cam pi unobserved, and marching bare
footed, to prevent their tramp being heard,
one of the -Danet trod upon a large prickly
thistle, and the sharp cry of pain which he
instinctively uttered, suddenly apprised the
Scots of their danger, who Immediately ran
to their arms and defeated the foe with Croat
slaughter.) The , thistle was .thenceforward
adopted i Ue aaUonaMnsigUia of Scotland,
