The Accident to the Quaker City.
Ax iMPAin Ovisboakd. While the passen
gers of the disabled steamer Quaker Oily
were, on the 7th instant, fifty miles south of
Cape Hatteras, being handed np the side of
the bark Dumbarton, a heavy test was running-,
and it was with the ulmoef-diiSoulty
that the ladies could be gotten on board.
This was finally effected, and then an inno
cent little nursling, whose mother had en
trusted it to the rough hands of the honest
tars, was handed up. Tbe little thing was too
light and tender for their hard palms uB(i
they sung out from the boat to those above to
catch the "little one," and the next moment
a score of arms was outstretched, as it, was
lifted crowing anoT kicking towards the gun
wale. Alas 1 all hands missed it, and it fell
back into the sea among the sharks every
eye was strained, the pulsations of the heart
were stopped, and for a moment all seemed
paralyzed ; but this lasted only for an instant,
the sturdy arm of one of the gallant boat's
crew had grasped the dear little one by the
leg, and as he lifted it aloft a cheer saluted
its appearance. The mother of the child now
went into strong oonvulsions, and the infant
was passed into the arms of Mrs. Davidson,
and while resting there a beautiful land bird
hovered for a moment over its little form, and
then, as if to assure itself that it lived, perched
upon its dress, and hopped and chirped in
concert with the crowing of the babe. The
bird then jumped to the shoulder of Mrs.
Davidson, thence to the shoulder of Mr. Da
vidson, who was near, and then took a final
farewell of the bark and her rescued passen
gers. Norfolk Day Book.

I intend to make a tour of the States and of

self, as an eye-witness, of the flourishing insti

transmit to the poor Irish at home a weekly
report of the condition of their relatives and
friends on the other side of the Atlantlo, and
to point out those parts of the Union where
labor is most rewarded, and where settlement
is most advantageous. My letters to Ireland
shall have no referenoe, direotly or indirectly,
to politics, International or domestic. I shall
be a mere Irish traveler, oheering my fellow
countrymen wherever I happen to meet them,
and conveying the thanks, the gratitude of
Ireland to Amerioa for the protection and her
matoMess hospitality to the wandering emi

through the towns and elties, I shall deliver

Two Claimants for a Chows. A elvll war
has followed the death of the late Emperor in
Morrocoo. There are two claimants for the
crown. The son of the Emperor has succeeded
to the "green turban," but his tight isdisputed
by bis eousin. It appears that when the Em
peror, Abder Rahman, died, many years ago,
hit brother, Muley Solelman, seized the throne
to the exclusion of the rightful heir, Abder, the
son of the Emperor. Abder did not make a
fuis abont it, but quietly submitted, and helped
hit uncle all that he oould in the government.
When tbe nnele died Abder suooeeded him

SOKOAT LAW lit Pitbbobq. The carriage
driver of Chief Justice Lowrie, of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania has been fined $25 at
Pittsburg, for driving his employer to church
on Sunday.' The offending driver, it appears,
was employed bv the Judtre to attend his
garden and drive his carriage, at a stipulated
price per month ; but the mayor decided that
driving to church on Sunday was a matter of
convenience, and sot a work of necessity or
charity, and therefore was a violation of the
law against worldly employment on Sunday,
which law excepts oases of necessity or chari
ty. The mayor's: decision deoidesi several

Personal Identity.
Many years ago, perhaps about the year
1790, there were two brothers of the name of
Harp, roaming about the barrens of Kentucky,
whose oocupation seemed to be to eommit atro
cious murders, and In many instances, appar
ently without any objeot, exoept, as the older
aeknowiedged, hatred of the human species.
In consequence of these atrocities, the Gov
eruor of the SUte offered a large reward for
theircapture. . To avenge the murder of a Mrs.
Btegal, a man of the name of Leiper raised a
party, and set out In pursuit of tbe murderers.
The elder Harp was arrested and killed, his
bead cut oSand carried before a justioe of the
peaoe, to claim the reward. The head was
then stuck en a tree at the fork oCthe roads,
which have ever Bince been known as Harp's
Bead Soad. , The younger brother escaped and
joined a party on the Mississippi Elver, headed
by a man of the name of Measure. They,
were river pirates and robbed boats goingdown
the river, or the parties ascending who might
have money, pleasantly observing that these
people took produce to maTket for them. Dur
ing the absense of the gang, young Harp cut
off Measure's head, which he packed in slay
for preservation, and carried it down the river
to Natohee, where Gov. Claiborne had offered
a reward of $1,000 for it. His claim was ad
mitted, as Meaiure's features were well known,
but unfortunately for him, he was reoognized
by a man from Kentuoky, and arrested and
put cn hit trial.
There was a good deal of contradictory evi
dence. Mr. Poindexter, afterward Governor,
was the United States Distrlot Attorney, and
informed the writer of this that though every
body was satisfied he was the man, yet there
was not a sufficiency of clear evidenoe to legally
eonviot, until as he was about to give the cane
to the jury for acquittal of the party a
stranger, from North Carolina, attracted by a
crowd, made his appearanoe. He was raised
in North Carolina, and knew the Harps whon
boys ; but years had elapsed, and he could not
oertainly identify the man. But he stated the
younger Harp had three toes growing together
on one of his feet, whioh, upon examination
proved to be the case with tbe prisoner, and he
was convioted. PkilacMphi North .American.

successive siaes in tne manufacture are very
Interesting. One machine (and they are all
light in their construction) outs the pen from
the steel strip, another stamps it with the man

splits the point, and scores of small, bussing
grindstones, from whioh, by oontaet with the
pen, streams of sparks are emitted, and grind
ing the pens at the point and along the baok,
to give them the spring whioh Is necessary.
This is considered the most important ope
ration, the one on whioh the value of the pen

unoffending boy of fourteen years was dread

newspaper accounts fail to give an adequate

English journals report that the receipts of
the ship from visitors range from three to eight

gratifies the publio and that the sight-seers
