Thi Abmstronq Quits. The London Aihe-

3rFor some cause or other, weddings are

A Modern Jack Siikfpabd. The Worcester
(Mass.) Spy relates the criminal adventures of
a boy twelve years of age, whose precocious
rogueries and cunning escapes would form an
interesting obsraoter in the Old Bailey Chron
icle of the Police Gazette.' This young rogue,
Isiso B. Patch, bv name, commenced his
career in Worcester by stealing from his anele,
Mir. H. if. Towns, $250, with which lie went to
Boston. There be fell into the hands of a
police officer, and was sent home in eharge of
the conduotor. He eluded the vigilante of his
guardian, however, and left the trail at Groton
junction. After various hairbreadth : ttsespes
and wily straljgems, he stole a horse, wsgon
and harness, belonging to Isaae Gross of Aah
bnrnham, and made his way to Bellows Falls,
where, he was overtaken by the owner of the
team, and brought back to Fitchburg, and
committed for trial at the next Criminal Court
for Worcester County. - '.
A Round About Arrival. The Charleston
Courier announces a remarkable and noteworthy
arrival at that port, all the way from Blilwau
kle. The schooner Adria, Captain Chase, was
built at Milkauwie, and loaded at St. Joseph's
(opposite Milwaukie). She psased through
Lake Michigan, the Straits of Maokinao, Lake
Huron, the St. Clair River, and the Welland
Canal, and the lake route, into the St. Law 7
renoe River, and through the Gulf of St. Law
rence and Cut of Canso into the "Salt Pond,"
known as the Atlantic. She left St. Joseph's
on the 28th of May, and readied Providence,
Rhode Island, on the 12th of July, after a
route of three thousand two hundred miles.
From New York to Charleston she made eight
hundred miles, In all four thousand miles,
Cruelty to Sailors. For the three years,
ending August, 1858, says the New York r
prtu, an average of one hundred and fifty
oomplaints per day year have been made by
Bailors for cruel treatment at sea beforo the
United States Commissioner in this oity. Two,
thirds were made against mates, and one-third
against captains, for cruel and unusual pun
ishment. For the past year the number of
complaints nave been only fifty-one, and tak
ing the results of last year as a criterion out of
the hundreds of cases of maltreatment that 00
cur every year on American vessels trading to
this port, only forty got before the examining
magistrate, and but one in forty of the accuiod
was convicted.
A Disadvantage of Hoops. It is suggested
by an eastern medical journal that tbe use of
hoops in the dress of small g trie, by keeping
the body cooler tnan they had lormerly been
accustomed to, renders them more liable to
bowel disorders. Of this we of course know.
nothing, but we do know that in a majority of
cases the use of hoops ny little girls is abso
lutely promotive of indelicacy, as any mother
can easily convince herself of, who will notothe
almost universal habit little girls woo wear them
have fallon into, of striking the hoops so as to
make tbe clothing fly off from the body, or the
still worse habit of lifting the dress, whioh
they encourage. If grown people want to wear
hoops let them do it, but don't banish the na

Indiana Divorces AVobtr Nothing in New
York. The oase of Julia E. Clark against Al
vln B. Clark, whioh was tried before Judge Ba,
con, at the last term of tho Supreme Court, in
June last. In Lewis County, N. Y.. has been
decided in favor of the nlaintilf unon all the
issues of tho ense. rne action was brought
against the defendant on the ground of adult'
ery. The Uourt held tnat a divorce obtatnoa
in the state ot Indiana, When tne party goes
there for tbe purpose ot procuring suoh ut
vorce, and then returns to the State of New
York, is wholly inpoerativeand void.
Death of a Veteran of Tiro Wars. John
Lindsey, a soldier who fought in the war of
1812. and also in tbe jriorida war. died in
Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, on the 10th in
stant, at tne aavanoea age 01 seventy years,
lie was In the battle of Lundy's Lane, and re.
celved several wounds which disabled him from
service for a time. He also took part in the
Florida War, and was one of General Scott's
body-guard. He saw Black Hawk, Osceola,
anil a large number of the other famous Indian
Chiefs who figured conspicuously in that In
dian War. At the olose of the strife between
the whites and Indians in Florida, he returned
to Pennsylvania.
Testimony or a Dream. The Hon. A. U,
Banscom, a prominent politician of Miohigan
and Speaker of the Assembly of that State in
1847, died at Marquette, Lake Superior, on the
4th instant, of hemorrhage of tbe lungs. He
was one of the most genial men in the State,
and his death, in tho prime of manhood, will
cause very many heavy nearts. it is an
nounced, as a singular fact, that his wife (at
that time a long distanoe from blm) dreamed
during the night of his death, that he had died
and related the dream to her friends a day or
two before the intelligence of his death reached
them..
Street Railroads in Washington. As the
meeting of Congress is only a little over three
months distant, the subject of railroads on
Pennsylvania-avenue, in Washington, is again
beginning to excite attention. There will
doubtless be active competition, for the prize
is valuablo, and the Intelligencer has heard
stated that responsible persons are ready to
offer to oonstruot the Metropolitan Railroad,
from Georgetown to the Point of Rocks, in
consideration or tne grant ot a raiiroaa pnv
ilege through the two cities.
ANOTniit Yankee Settlement. In addition
to Eli Thayer's Yankee settlement in Virginia,
we now learn of another, in the mountain dis
tricts. The land purchased for the purpose
known as the Hollingeworth Survey, consists
of eighty-two thousand acres, and lies princi
pally In Highland, Randolph, and Pendleton
Counties. Tbe price paid was $60,000, or eighty
cents per aore.
Embszzlesirnt in England. We should
judgo from acoounta in the English papers, for
the laat aix months, that embezzlements by
petty officials are much more frequent than in
this country. The last oase noticed is that
a rate-oolleotor for the parish of St. Giles,
Camberwell, named Alfred Cooper, who has
been arrested and committed on a eharge
embezzling $5,000.
Grubs Killing the Grasshoppers. In the
eountiea of Hope, Cavan and Manvers,
Canada, a species of small grub, very similar
to the weevil, is found attacking the grasshop
pers, and the strength of their joints giving
away before the attack, In suoh a manner, that
the grasshoppers are dying in myriads.

Health or Charleston. The etty
Charleston, Sjutb? Carolina, must be unusually
healthy, as during the past week only one white
person died there. Nine oolored persons died,
and of thesi six were children.
Rroadcloth the Enemy of Health.
Professor Hamilton, la an able address on
hygiene to the graduates of Buffalo Medical
College, denounces broadcloth aa an enemy to
exeroise, and therefore to health. His remarks
are pointed and sensible. He says:
American gentlemen have adopted aa a na
tional costume, broadcloth a thin, tight fitting
black suit of broadcloth. To foreigners, we
seem always to be in mourning; we travel in
black, we write in blaok, and we work in black.
Tbe priest, the lawyer, the dootor, the literary
man, the meehanio, and even the day laborer,
cuoose aiwaya tne same unvarying, monoton
ous black broadcloth; a stylo and material
whioh never ought to v.ave been adopted out of
me drawing-room or me puipit; neoauie it is a
feeble and expensive fabric; because it is at the
North no suitable protection against the cold.
nor is it indeed any more suitable at theSouth.
It u to thin to be warm in winter, and too
black to be cool in ths summer; but especially
do we objcot to it because tbe wearer is always
afraid of soiling it by. exposure. Young gen
tlemen will not play ball, or pitch quoites, or
wrestle and tumble, or any other similar thing,
lest their broaaciottt should be onended. They
will not go ont in a storm, because the broad-
oloth will lose its lustre if rain falls upon it;
tney win not run Because tney nave no conn
denoe in the strength of the broadcloth; they
dare not mount a horse, or leap a fence, because
broadcloth, aa everybody knows, Is so faithless.
So these young men, and these older men,
merchants, mechanics, and all, learn to walk,
talk and think soberlyand carefully; they sel
dom venture to laugh to the full extent of their
slues.

A Faithful Wife. The Mareschal de
Mouchy, having beon conducted a prisoner
to the Luxemburg, had scarcely arrived
when his wife entered tho prison. The
jailor obscrvsjl to her that tho ordor for the
Maroschal's arrest made no mention of her.
She answered with mingled gayety and
sweetness, "Since my husband is a prisoner,
1 inn one, niso.
When ho was carried beforo the revolu
tionary Tribunal, he wits slill attended bv
his wife. The Public; Accusor having in
formed Madame tie Mouchy, that she was
not called upon to nppear, she replied,
"When my husband is called for, I am also
called."
In a word, when the fatal sentence of death
was pronounced upon tho Mareschal, his
faithful wife ascended the cart with him:
and when the executioner objected, because
she was not condemned to die, she answered,
"Since sentence is passed upon my husband,
11 is passed upon mo niso."

Funeral. A shocking murder occurred in
the town of Lloyd, Ulster County, N. Y.,
day or two ago. A man named James Van-
dervoort wont into the house of a Mr. Albert
son, in that village, in which was his daugh
ter, engaged in making a shroud for Mrs,
Albertson, who then lay dead in the house
at the time. He ordered his daughter to go
home immediately, and threatened to her
nersonal iniurv if she refused. Younir Al
dertson, who was in at the time, then inter
fered, and endeavored to reason tho matter
witlihim, wbenthoy got into a nuurrol, which
resulted in Vandorvowt stabbing him. The
murderer has since been arrested and lodged
in tne Kingston Jan.
Poking Fun at It. The Providence Journal
makes light of the New York "Croton panic,"
in tnis cruel way:
Some of the people are bringing water from
Brooklyn, and probably there will soon be as
muoh oheating in imported water as in imported
brandy, ine "importers ' will probably send
the Croton over to Brooklyn, and, without
landing it, bring it back as Brooklyn water
just as whisky goes to France and oomea baok
brandy. It is strange that It has not occurred
to some one to got out an "injunction ' on tbe
Croton. ThiB is the universal remedy in New
York.
3FIt is believed that tho new conical
balls used in war produce less dangerous
wounds than the ordinary spherical ones.
the former do not strike with the apex, they
deviate from their course, instead of smash
ing the bones. It appears from an examina
tion of the returning soldiers wounded
Italy that the conical balls travel in almost
every direction through the head, unlesBthcy
happen to stri ke with accuracy. The modern
philanthropists of Europe will have to con
sider this subject, and probobly return to the
old fogy method of killing men with round
balls.
Excitement in Portland Thi Mainr Law
Enforced. An extraordinary soene was wit
nessed at Portland, Maine, on the 17th inBt.,
that of the police entering the house of a citi
zen, and breaking open his private iron safe
suspicion that it contained liquors. The build
ing where this occurred was tho Exchange
Coffee-house, the proprietor, Jesse Annis. The
city marshal, notwithstanding Mr. Annis pro
tested against this violent Intrusion upon
premises, after considerable hard labo;, forced
open the safe, found nine bottles of liquor, and

A Citizen of Howard County, Maryland,
Among the Mormons.
The Patapsco (Ellicott's Mills) Enlerprut,
of Saturday, publishes an Interesting letter
from Mr.f John Ware, a native of that vicinity,
who, as a United States soldier, left Baltimore
for Utah, April 11, 1856. He describes affairs
in that quarter as follows:
The great Salt Lake City that yon hear 10
much about has throe or four respectable
looking houses, and tbe balance are of no ac
count. There is no fruit in this country of
any account. I have paid thirty-six conts for
an apple, and twelve for a peach, and very
hard to be got at that. From Salt Lake City
we oame here to this place, the world-renowned
Camp Floyd. It Is one of the dirtiest places
on the face of the earth. It is a valley of
dust surrounded by mountains. We built our
quarters bore in a very short time and settled
down for the winter. Our company was or
dered to a town called Springville, where I got
an insight to the wey the Mormons live.
l nave seen a dozen of women in our camp
with hardly clothing enough to cover their
nakedness, picking up the bacon that we threw
away. Tbe men told me that they had not
seen any money for five years beforo we came
bore, lnlaotthoy did not know a now cent
from a five dollar gold piece. I have seen
some of our boys buy a quart of whisky for a
new cent and get two dollars and a quarter In
change. Ths children are utterly ignorant;
there Is not one in a hundred that knows the
alphabet. As aoon as a male child is able to
work, he is sent into tbe mountains to herd
cattle. If a female child is born, before It is
three days old it is engaged to be married,
perhaps, to some man older than its parents.
Gold for Jewelry.
a
a
Ttiro gold is never required for jewelry,
and is usually alloyed by introducing a small
quantity of silver or copper. Silver renders
it lighter in color, and copper gives it n
deeper shade, inclining to a reddish hue.
The jeweler of the present lnv relies, in a
great measure, on dies for the form ho gives
the articles that come from his ha-uds. These
he has cut in steel with caro, and many of
them nre beautiful; aud often they aro very
intricate. The gold is rolled into strips, and
what is beheld is nil that it professes to lie
pure gold; but the proportion of tho metnl is
very small. A strip of gold not thicker than
a silver dollar is secured to a bar of brass of
corresponding sizo, but much thicker in pro
portion. A iiux is applied to unite the two,
and tho mass is subjected to tho action of the
fire. At the proper moment it is withdrawn,
and when cool the two metals are found
firmly united. The bar is then rolled be
tween cylinders, set in motion by steam
power, and this operation is continued till
the metal, in the form of a ribbon, is not
thicker than letter paper. It is then cut
into small pieces of the size required, and
the artisan so places them in succession that
the die falls upon each, in turn, giving to it
tne required lorm. as ine cue rises, tne
piece last struck is removed, and another
piece is placed over the socket ready to be
struck wnen the die comes down again. The
die is attached to a very heavy weight, which
gives force to the blow, and it is guided by a
giWYoa. irameworK.

in a late speech, liroderick denonnoed his col
league (Gwin) in unmeasured terms. He said
Gwin was " dripping with corruption no

as a traitor to bis State, sneers at bis attempts
to address publio meetings, and to the grave
charges of dishonesty, returns the flattest
denial. The drift of the discussions between
the two Senators, it is generally thought, will
lead to a hostile meeting. It is a matter of
regret that men holding suoh honorable sta

one another.

A Nsw Arch of Tbidiifr in Paris.
resolution has been passed for tbe erection
a triumphal arch to tbe army of Italy. This
monument, whioh will cost several millions,
will ostensibly be erected by subscription, bat
It is perfectly well understood whenoe the prin
cipal portion of the funds will be derived. It
will be a magnificent monument to be exe
cuted In stone, and to rival in elaborate work
and finish that of the Barricrtdel'Etoite. The
bass-reliefs are already distributed for execution
among the best sculptors in Paris, and the de
signs are to be sent in for approval, to the com
mittee, before the end of tbe month.
