A Nest of Three Hundred Desperadoes
in the iemillumvilte Echo of the 10th, of
.uaiayetio I'arisb, Louisiana, we find the fol
lowing; A stranger ooming into our town early last
Saturday morning would have been considera
bly surprised at seeing armed horsemen ooming
from all direotions, and hurriedly passing
through, taking a westerly direotion. There
was a fixed determination in the face of each
man as he harried by, which plainly told that
he had some serious objeot in view. The facts
aro simply these :
About ten days ago the Vigilance Committee
of this parish were informed that a powerful
and well-organiiedbandof desperadoes, headed
by John Jones or John Baptiste Chlasson,nd
supposed to number about three hundred men,
were within about twonty miles of this plaoe,
and prepared to give the Vigilants battle. The
Committee of St. Martin, Vermillion, St. Ban
dry and Calcasieu wore immediately apprised
of tbe fact, and on Saturday morning, tho
third inst, eaoh was promptly at the place
previously agreed upon as a rendezvous. After
the necessary arrangements had been made,
tho Vigilant!, numbering about five hundred
men, took up their line of inaroh for the place
whore it was known that the enemy would be
found. As they marched along, two or three
men were taken prisoners, all armed with
double-barreled guns, which, they said, they
carried with them to shoot birds, but on draw
ing the charges from their guns, they were
found to contain bullets Instead gf shot.
About ten o'clock, the Vigilants came la
sight of the house of one Emilien Lagrange,
where tho desperadoes had fortified themanlvna..
outtlng holes in the walls of the dwelling and
all the out-houses, through which thoy intended
to fire on their enomy. When tho oommittecs
got within a short distance of the fortifications
tbey halted and prepared to batter tho build
ings down, having with them a piece of cannon,
but just then thoy learned that there wore
several women and children in the dwelling
house, which caused them to hesitate about
firing, not wishing to harm them. As soon as
tho bolligorents saw tho caanon pointed toward
them, they became sreatlv eonfuaad. and ItiA
whole number left their forts and part of thorn
ran off into the woods, pursuod by a oompany
of Vigllants,who overtook andoaptured several
of them. The balance remained near the
houses, but made no show of raaiatannn- a
deputation of four men was sent to order their
instant surrender, which thoy promptly did,
each man coming and delivering up his arms.

that was lost.

Great Trial Between English and
There has beon a great trial of power be
tween the English and Amorican locomotives,
owned by the Government of Chill. The con
tost lasted four days. Below we furnish. the
result of the third aud fourth days :
The third day, July 21, tha English passen
ger engine, the Moult, (named after the Presi
dent,) was trotted out, and hooked on a train
of fifteen platform oars loadod with bar iron
total weight two hundred and eighty-eight
tuns. At the signal away she went, took her
train to the summit twelve miles in thirty
nine minutes, and to the seventh mile post in
forty-nine minutes ; returning, came in contact
with gradients of fifty-six foot per mile, and
reached the twelfth mile post in twenty-four
minutes, thence running down grado to her
home. Her performance was looked upon as
something iy Ji(co,(not to bo beat,)"hcxtra
ordlnary," A-o., &o., her baokers wore confi
dent, spirits rose, not from the vasty deep, but
in the hearts of vonorable John's children, and
from the counters of various saloons and grog
shops that night ; but how often is man
doomed to disappointment.
The morning of the fourth day dawned like
all tho proceeding clear, bright and beautiful.
The god of the winds had lulled them to sleep.
Tho American passenger engine, Santiago, was
walked on the course with all her splendid fit
tings and bright work, as neat and in as good
order as tho first day she ran two years since.
She was hooked to tho train of the day before,
and at the signal walked off at a speed which
soon showed no hope for her rival of the day
beforo. In twenty-seven minutes she gained
the summit, and left the twelfth mile post
behind her, and in thirty-four and a half min
utes she pulled up at the seventeenth mile,
running part of the distance beyond the sum
mit at the rate of sixty miles an hour. Re
turning, sho gainod the summit in twenty-one
and a half minutes, and thon quietly slid
down the grado to her own home winding up
the four days races without hurtlni. anv n.
and without doing any discredit to hor coun
try or countrymen.
A Nunnkrv. Dr. Buist, during his north
ern trip, communicatos his notos of travel,
short and pithy, to that excellent paper, the
Jjauronsvillo Merald. While at Montreal he
visited the establishment of the Gray Nuns,
A nunnery is somowhat different from what
I had supposed. Indeed. I have never mot
a book whioh gave me the least hint of its
true character. 1 had supposed it simply a
religious house for unmarried females: but
thoy are not so at all; thoy aro chiefly hospitals
for tho infirm, old, blind and sick, and
orphan asylums, where hundreds of ehildren
aro educated and taken core of. And the
nuns aro engaged in managing, superintend
ing, teaching, Bowing, and in every respect
controlling these large and charitable founda
tions. This feature in the nunnery is most
commendable, and makes them very popu
lar in Montreal. The nunneries, too, aro
very wealthy, and - havo great influence.
About soven hundred persons live in the os
establishment of ray Nuns, and but one
hundred and twenty are nuns, so you may
judge, how largely it is a charitable institution.
A Bit op Romance. That "truth is stranger
;han fiction," is fully illustrated in the follow
ing romantic story related by the Diaro of
Madrid, the government organ of Spain, if the
incidents be true:
A few years ago, an English nobleman, a
gran do of tbe first water, and an ecoentrieian
of the wildest school, honored New York with
his presence and money. He lived stiiotly in
cognito, and his sole amusement consisted in
wandering in the streets after nightfall, and in
relieving those of his fellow-creaiures who had
experienced the pains of poverty or the penal
ties of dissipation. While npon one of his hu
mane excursions, he encountered a female who
tenderly solicited alms. Inquiring, he found
her to be an orphan of suipassing beauty, and
an intelligent mind, and of an exoellent educa
tion, reduced to abject destitution by the death
of her father, shot in the Mexican Avar. The
titled Howard, wearied at his bachelor's exist
ence, and won by the romance of the beggar's
history, tendored to her his heart, his coronet,
and his hand. The sequel is, that at a reoont
ball given by the Russian Emperor, a duohess,
radiant with beauty, and sparkling with dia
monds, won the hearts of all observers.
The distinguished lady was the oldevant
mendioant of the New York streets.
Thr California Vinegar Plant. Dr. E. J.
Coxe hag favored us, says a California paper,
with a bottle of a beverage tasting like spruce
beer, made from a plant handed him by a lady
from Texas, and originally from California,
whore it is known as the "vinegar plant." By
mixing a certain quautity of water, molasses
or goldon syrup, with a small portion of the
plant, in a bottle well corked, in a few hours,
the beverage above mentioned is produced.
Allowed to sour, it booomes good vinegar. ' Its
strangost quality, however, is that it feeds on
tho syrup and water, and grows with such
rapidity as to furnish an inexhaustible supply.
Br. Coxe informs us, that from the small por
tion of the plant, handed him only a few weeks
ago, thousands of bottles of agreeable beverages
have been made, and used in many families.
and still the plant grows on its simple food in
such quantity as to furnish all who wish for it.
Dr. Loxe says it is harmless, and possesses no
intoxicating qualitios. We tasted the bevorage
last night; and if not otherwise informed, we
would have thought we were sipping the ordi
nary spruoe beer, familiar to cvory one.
Great Hail-Storm om Iakb Sltkrior, A
correspondent of the Detroit Advertiser, wri
ting from Minnosota Mine, under dnto of
September II, says:
Yesterday we hud a hail-storm horo thnt
for violence has rover been onualed. The
bail loll thick nnd hoavy for about twonty
minutes, Bomo of tho stones being soven
inches in circumference, ami woichine four
ouncos. Tho storm thon abated for a timo,
and those who had tho lights of glass in tho
windows of their houses brokon. proceeded
to replnco them by othors. but tlioir has!
availed them nothing, for a second storm
came on fiercer than the first. ltlnid tnr
about half au hour, nnd the glass that was
uu& uunioiisnca oy tno nrsi storm bad to suf
fer. One niece of ice was found thai. Tnit,.i
half a pound. The effects of the storms
were felt only within a small spaco, as in
places one milo distant from this no hail
stones fell. - ,.
DtJKLLiNO. When Jiiilco Thateher was.

by Mr. Blount, member frnm Wnr.h rvmiinn

justing his wig and revolutionary hat, said to
