A Strange Romance—A Father Finds
His Daughter after a Search of
Twenty-five Years.
. .
Years ago, a young man, Mr. T., resident of
this town, went to Albany to s &om,b friends,
nd while there made the 'aequafntance of a
jonog lady, a dress-maker in the . family he
was visiting. During his stay In tuatclty he
won the affections of the dress-maker, and
under the promise of marriage accomplished
her rntn; Mr. .T. Jaft for bis home after assur
ing the young lady that he would return and
fulfill his engagement; bat, alas, his promise"
was not ful fJllod- thoy never met again. After
months of anxiety; and telf-upbraidings, Mr.
1. returned to Albany to see the objeet of his
affections and marry her; he loved her, though
if bad so cruelly deceived her. The dress
maker had left the city, and no traces of her
could b found. " Her ascertained, however,
that she had given birth to a daughter, and,
after waiting months for bis return, had left
the city of her shame. After a fruitless effort

young man nas become a wealthy farmer and
Is surrounded by a happy and interesting
family. He has been blessed with everything
to make him happy, but the reeolleetioa of
that wronged one has embittered his existence
and made life most miserable, and year after
year he hu been untiring in his efforts to dis
cover her or the offspring of their unhallowed
love. ; . . . t
Tho mother, after leaving Albany, married, in
one of tha river cenntlos, a mechanic The
daughter remained with her mothor until she
had reached the age of fifteen, when, in con
sequence of the Ill-treatment of her step
father, she left her home and obtained a situ
ation as a servant in the family of Mr. B., of
Troy that gentleman having formerly been a
resident of this village. Soon after, the young
girl's mother died, and having no relatives to
whom she oould look for sympathy or aid, the
was persuaded to come to this villsge and
reside in . the family of Mr. B.'s father. She
accordingly arrived here about nine . years
since, and five years ago was married to a
young mun, a mason by trade. Last winter
tho lady's husband was employed to do some
work for Mr. T. After the work was com
pleted, .Mr. T. visited the mason's house
several times for tho purpose of carrying
produoe In payment of his labor. . Mr. T.
was impressed with the appearance of the
young man's wife, and on inquiry asaertalned
where she was from, what her. mother's name
was before she was married, Ac, (the daughter
had been christened the name of her step
father,) and, altera most thorough Investiga
tion, he became convinced that she was bis
long loitdavgkttr I T.'s wife bad never known
of his orlmiual love, and he dared notreyeal It
to her. For several months he wrapt the secret
in his own breast, till at last paternal affection
would no longer allow him to remain silent,
and he made himself known to his daughter,
told his wife all, who wisely forgave him, and
consented to, reoeive her as ono of the family.
The daughter is happy in the possession of a
father's; love, and will be joint heir of his
property. Truly, . v, . ;. ,;,

brought her to this place, and finally restored
her to a father's love, or was it that

1 tf&Vo have already announced the
death of the distinguished engineer, Isamy
bard Kingdom Brunei. His fathor, Mark
Isambard Brunei, came from the vicinity of
Rouen, And his architecural achievements
exist both in his native country and the
United States. In 1793 helled for political
reason) from France to New York, where he
undertook the exploration and surrey of
some lands for a French land company, and
in 1794 commenced the surrev of the Cham-
plain Canal. He sent in a design for the
nouses of Congress, and was much employed
as an engineer and Architect in Now York,
both by the State and by private individuals.
After a stay of a few years he returned to
Europe, and visited England. , In London,
the famous Thames Tunnel remains an en
during monument of his engineering skill.
The son appears to have inherited the genius
of his parent. Born at Portsmouth, Eng
land, and educated at Caen, in Normandy,
he early embraced his father's profession,
and when but little over twenty years of age,
was resident engineer of the Thames Tunnel.
Here he had several narrow escapes from
drowning, from the breaking in of the water.
After . the tunnel was - finished, "Brunei
planned the Great Western Railway of Eng
land, and superintended- its construction.
He also built the Great Western steamer,
which at one time created such a sensation,
though in every respect it was as far sur
passed by subsequently built steamers, as
they are by the builder's last work the
Grca Eaitern. Later, Mr. Brunei conducted
the works of tho Tuscan portion of the Sar
dinian railways, and other foreign railways,
and during tho Crimean war he nad the en
tire charge of the establishment and organ
izing tho Renkioi hospitals on the Dar
danelles. He was, at the time of his death,
Vico-Presidentof the Institution of Engineers
and of tho Society of Art, fellow and mem
ber of the Council of the Uoyal Society, and
member of many other learned ' societies.
He also received tho Cross of the Legion of
Honor from Louis Philippe
Northampton (Mass.) G untie thus records
the triumphs of its new caloric engine:
It goes "like a clock." Puffing and blow
ing, it tugs away at its work like a boy at his

it. "What makes it go?" asks one. "Where
is the watorf" asks another. "What the
deuce won't tho'y get up next?" And on it
go! "WhRt's that blowing off?" That is
tho escape of hot air. AVhou mora heat is
gonoratcd than is needed to drive tha press,
it is pnsscd oir through tho escape pipe. 1 No
water ia used. A lire is built in the little
furnace and the wheol set in motion, and
away it goes. It needs no attention any fur
ther than to keop the Are burniri2. Anybov
can manage it. And besides driving the
press, it gives an trio neat necessary to warm
the room in the coldest weather. It oan con
sume but little fuel, and therefore can not
cost much to run it. It is the cheapest power
in the world. , When first set up, the draft
was not good, and it lauea to snow its power,
but that difficult has been oTorcoine,'and
now it "goes like a top."t Three cheers for

Editing a Newspaper.
In the""6rawer" of that excellent porlodioal,
the Soulier Tpacher, yiy. ,the Coiuinbs('a:)
Sun, we find the following, ia which Is oonoen
trated volnme of truth ; j .,:
Editing a newspaper 1, a good deal like
making a fire. Everybody supposes that he
oan do it A little belter than anybody else. We
have heard people doubt their fitness forvarlous
employments; but In all our experience, we
have never met with that individual who did
not think be could double the circulation of
any paper in two months.
We might add that there are as many and
various opinio) concerning the' duties and
qualifications of the editor, as there are men
themselves, and perhaps no one error is more
prevalent than that with regard to original
and selected matter, i Some imagine that the
oolumns of a newspaper should be filled with
article's of the editor's own originating; while
few, a very few, concur -in opinion- that that
paper is best oonductod which oonstitutos a
faithful reflection or panorama of the world as
it is each day. Ia either caee, the oolumns of
a paper may reflect the views of the editor,
upon "matters and things" as they oocur.
- The experience of that Nestor of the Press,
the National Intelligencer, as well as others that
have bad a successful oareor, Is decidedly in
favor of the latter of the above methods. The
secret which all aoknowlsdge, but few practice,
is not knowing what to write, but in what not
to write. While many papers have proved
failure) becaubo of what has filled their col
umns, others have suoceedod on account of
what bos been excluded. The secret of succoss
then lies more in judicious selections; in for
rstting out news; in discovering what is rich
and valuable in tbe thoughts of others than in
distilled dullness of original articles, from the
pen of mere political essayists who preside over
the fortunes of a daily, or that lejs freqnent
hebdomadal, a weekly,. , Of. oourae these views
mast be modified according to tbe purpose for
whloh a paper mey be established, or the prin
ciples to whioh it may be dovotcd, in which
case it is better even then to exhibit by a happy
seleotion the oonourrent and corroborating
opinions of others to fortify a position than to
rely principally upon the power and force of a
single pen.'"
: Liko any other profession, we' oonfess, it is
easier by far to theorise upon the duties of the
editor, than to carry the conclusions of theory
into effect. '
Steam from Antwerp to Baltimore and
A Brussels correspondent of the New York
Herald, Bay):,,,.., ,. ;
I think I may now reporr, with certainty,
that the basis for the line of steamers between
Antwerp and tbe South is fully deoided upon
this side. . The steamer) will depart once a
week from Antwerp, with alternate arrivals at
Baltimore (or the Chesepeake) and Charleston,
South Carolina. Tbe line Is mostly intonded
for carrying freight. Falmouth, in England,
may be made a port of call going and coming.
There are some negotiations now going on to
that effect. The great railroad companies hav
ing a direct interest in this steam service are:
tbe London and South-western, England; the
Cologne and Antwerp, Belgium; the great
Luembourg, Belgium; the Baltimore and Ohio,
America, and ths Charleston and Memphis,
and Charleston and Tennessee Railroads,
America, rne Virginia railroad interest, con
centrating at Norfolk, would, of course, be
come (like Falmouth, in England,) a port of
call. It is believed on this side that in less
than two years this service will justify semi
weekly departures from Antwerp direct for
America, touching at Falmouth, England.
A Smii for a Bbdvellow, About two
weeks ago Mr. John Elder, of this town, had
an under-sack for a bed, filled with straw, at
"Keninore," by a negro man. It was brought
home and placed under a feather-bed which
was slept on by a daughter of Mr. E's. The
young lady complained on a number of occa
sions of having ner slumbers disturbed by dis
tinct thumps from' underneath, but examina
tions revealed nothing. On Thursday morning-
while Miss E. was sitting down stairs,
facing the steps wbioh led up to her room, she
was startled by a curious noise, and looking up
discovered a moccasin snake descending, blow
ing and hissing in a style peouliar to the rep
tile. An examination oi ine premises was
made at once, when a small hole was discovered
in the under-saoking, and on ripping the bed
open, the full longth of a snake was found at
the hole, whioh his snakeshlp bad shed before

Ravages op the Bears in Wisconsin. Our
Wisconsin exchanges continues, to be filled
with startling aooonnts of the ravages of the
bears. Tbe whole State appears to be swarm
ing with these - ferooious animals, and the
inhabitants are becoming alarmed for their
safety.. The bears no longer confine their
visits to iarmor's pig-pens, but boldly ap
proach their dwellings and apply for admit
tance at kitonen-aoors and bed-room windows.

RuHiBKAni.K Risccr. On Friday morning,
as the freight train on the Camden and Atlan
tic Railroad, bound east, was approaching
Hammonton, N. .T., an object was seen on the
track ahead, wbioh was soon ascertained to bo
a child. Tho brakes were instantly Rpplied
and the engine reversed, but the great mo
mentum of fourteen burthen cars it ww soon
evident would carry the train far beyond the
point where tbe little innocent had fallen
across the track, when the fireman, Edward
Mackey, a Ind of eighteen yoars, ran oat upon
the cow-catoher and lifting the child from the
very jaws of death soon placed it in safety,
amid the cheers of the spectators of his gallant
conduot. Tho child belonged to a Mr. Robin
son, a resident of Hammonton, and had rambled
upon the railroad track without the knowledge

' Elicteioitt ik Cats. The extraordinary
eleotrioal character of the cat is well-known.
On a cold, bright day, if a oat be stroked, the
eleotrioal spark) issue therefrom, acoomanied
by a slight eraokling. It appear), too, that the
animal may be so surcharged with eleotrioity,
that it will give a severe shook to the beholder,
Ia order to obtain this result, the cat should
be placed on the knees and one band applied
to the breast while the other is employed in
stroking its fur. Crackling and sparkles soon
make their appearanoe,-and, in a short time,
the party continues to stroke the animal, he
will reoeive a shary eleotrioal shock that may
be felt above the wrists. The eat seems to
gaffer as muoh as tha experimenter, for on giv
ing forth the shock, she springs to the ground
in terror, and seldom will permit a repetition
of the same proees).
