first intimation received was that he had re
paired to Riohinond, Indiana, where hla sister-in-law
lived, and informed her husband that
he was on his way to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania,
to visit his mother-in-law. The wife concluded
that it would be a favorable time for her also
to visit her mother, and that she wonld go
with her brother-in-law. It would be such a
favorable timo, the husband consented, and the
parties prepared for their intended trip; but
instead of visiting Pittsburg they left for parts
unknown. These facts becoming fully known,
the wife despaired of evor seeing her husband,
brought suit for a divorce, and at the last Haroh
term of the Circuit Court of this county, was
divorced from her husband, Leroy Taylor. She

We anchored on the 4th of June, and found
the people of Fatnhiva, as usual, at war, that

If I give you flints you will use them to shoot

The Sornra oc thb Contest butwefh Si-ais
and thb Moors. Centa, the place of the recent
ngnt between tne (Spaniards and the Moors,
has been many times the scene of like combats
since it was held by Spain. It is a fortified
town of about fourteen thousand inhabitants,
including tne garrison, wnictt consists of about
five thousand men. The city is upon a penin
sula, or as it is usually oalled, an island,
the coast of Fez, which is one of the four prov
inces of Moroooo. It was the anoient Abyla,
one of the Pillars of Heroules. John I,
Portugal, first oaptured the post from
Africana, in 1415, and it fell into the hands
Spain when Portugal was conquered by Philip
II, in the year 1580. It is only seventeen
miles from Gibraltar, and resembles it in some
respects. Being the ohlef of the Spanish
stations on the African coast, it is the seat
a royal court, and the residence of a military
governor and other offioers. The Emperor
Morocoo, opposite whose dominions this post
situated, has just died, at the age of eighty
three, and it is rumored that aerioua complica
tions of affairs may arise in Africa. Should
this happen, it is not impossible that between
Moroooo, with its six millions of inhabitants,
and Spain, there may be something approach
ing a repetition of the old fights between
Saracens and the Christians.

After spending a couple of hours on the ship

after part of the vessel was a perfect machine'

Everybody was more or less shooked. about

of thunder, which was as sharp and quiok as

was no reverberation, no sullen or distant mut

distinot and terrible peal, which lasted only for
an Instant, and was followed by a dash of
lightning, which was as quickly gono as waa
tne peal wnion preceded it. This nasn ot tne
