PoBTioii Rs adihos. A large number of the

are already aware, have desired that poet

from bis own works, and he has consented to
do so, naming this evening and Smith &

carefully studied his subject for several
years, and his second lecture will doubtless
be as interesting as his first. He deserves, and
we hope he may' receive, an excellent audi

Boy Dbownsd. A boy named James L.
Gregg, whose parents reside on John-street,
near Court, was drowned yesterday morning
while playing in a skiff at the fool of Western

reaching over to eatoh it lost bis equilibrium
and fell into the river. Some persons saw the
accident, bat before they conld reader him any

although they made every effort to recover the
body, their exertions were without sucoets.

At their regular session yesterday morning,
the County Commissioners passed orders
amounting in the aggregate to $422 80; of
whioh $302 0 were paid to B. Clark, for
shingles used on tbe Harrison Bridge, and
$120 to John Medary and Cileries R.Smith,
for transcript from the records of the Polioe

was discharged from jail, not having the means
to pay the fines and costs oharged against

bow. Our readers probably remember the late
stabbing affray on Sausage-row, in whioh a
an named Jerry Sullivan was so severely
stabbed in the region of the heart that it was
thought he could not reoover. David MoOune,
who was the perpetrator of this cutting,' was
yesterday morning before Judge Lowe, and
held in the sum of $1,500 for hit appearance
at the next term of the Court of Common Pleas,
to answer the charge of stabbing with intent to
kill. : ;; ' .
Sullivan hi still at the Commercial Hospital
and In a very orltical condition, although his
pbyslolans think he will eventually reoover.
The wound is still dangerous, for there seems
to be an occasional hemorrhage, which at any

The moral atmosphere of Cincinnati teems
to be improving, and growing purer every
day. Indeed, it does not seem to us possible
that men should be bad during suoh glorious
weather ws are having now, and yet murders
are seldom committed on rainy days. But
when the sun looks down upon its crazy
child, the Earth, from soft and dreamy tkies,
like those Which overhung our beautiful oity
during the week just past, goodness seems the
more prevalent, and the nature of the man
partakes of the qualities of the air he breathes.
Still ihe paradox exists,and tbe thought that,
had the night been gloomy, lowering and
wet, instead of bright and beautiful and olear,
the late Plum-street "tragedy" would not
have taken place, will make it appear not al
together unreasonable. The weather may
have more to do, not only with the morals.
but the manners of society, than most of us
are aware; and in this we may find an evi
dence of the wisdom, manifested in making
the external world so lovely, while the misro
coera has been created full of woe. . , -
Bucolic Elopement and "Arcadian"
A rivers run to sets, maidens run to mar
riaga. After a certain age, somewhere be
tween fourteen and eighteen, the female sex
suffer from a kind of connubial fever, which
sooner or later carries them off. Wed they
will) wed they must; and if obstructions be
thrown in their way, they only arrive the
ooner at their object ' i : J- ."' , .'
Of this disposition and temperament were
a pair of elopers from Boone County; Ky.,
who arrived at the Spencer House a day or
two since, breathless from their anxiety to be
married. . They were a very odd-looking
pair, so undisciplined, so ardent, so entirely
unsophisticated. The girl was pretty, and
might have been charming, baa she been
reared in our metropolis; but her extremely
rural manners and unique costume made her
appear bisarre enough-. As to her lover, he
was a spectacle, with bis good-natured,
though extremely red face, his scattering,
nntrimmed locks, his seml-oivilised garb,
and hit ooarse boots, innocent of polish sinoe
the remote period of their creation. r -.-
"Look here, now, my friend," tali he to
Major Metealf, "we do Want to get married
awful bad. We've oome all the way from old
Kentaok to be married In this here tavern of
yourn." 1
The Major smiled when the elegant Spencer
was called a "tavern," but, amused by the fel
low's bluntness, told him he should be mar
ried as soon ss a preacher oould be procured.
"Be quiok, stranger, now; don't lots any time,
for I'm excited;" and here the Boonelte threw
off hit coat and walked up and down the cor
ridor with gigantic strides.
Meanwhile, "Jennie," the bride in prospect,
was standing with her bonnet half off, leaning
against s column, and gaxlng with partially
open month at every one who passed her. She
was awakened from her rapt astonishment
by "Davie," who told her If she "wanted to
get her things on, she'd better dolt soon."
Thus reminded, "Jennie" ran up stairs to
the first room she found open, and from a
carpet-sack she had in her hand she took out
a drest that had been originally white; tied
a crimson scarf around her waist; several green
and blue ribbons about her head; put on a
pair of yellow satin slippers, and descended
to the reception-room, radiant with smiles.
"Davie" met her as the went down, and
throwing his arms around her neck, gave her
a kiss that made even the servants start, and
horrified several high-bred loungers, attracted
by the novelty of the scene. ...
The minister or the "Bethel" arrived a few
minutes after "Jennie's" appearance In full
dress, and performed the oeremony; "Davie"
smoking a cigar and talking lovingly to his
companion all the while, At soon as the cere
mony wat ended, the new-made husband
caught np his bride in his arms, and waltzed
around the offloe with her for nearly a minute,
then set her down; paid hit bill; thook hands
with every one near, the porters and bell-boys
Included; and with a loud hurrah dragged
"Jennie" down the stab-way into a hack, and
disappeared, entirely insane, at was evident,
on tbe subject of marriage.
Meeting of the National
, The National Republloan Association met
last night for the purpose of discussing the
resolutions offered one week ago by Mr. Arm
strong., After soma debate, and several inef
fectual attempts to table the "subject, Mr.
Charlei R. Fosdlck offered the following sub
stitute, whioh, with the original resolutions,
were referred :. to" a committee consisting of
Messrs. Jordan, Fosdlck, Armstrong, Fisher
and Elliott:
Whibsas, The so-called Demooratto press,
both in this city and elsewhere, are endeavor
ing, by misrepresentation of facts and gross
falsehoods, to direct public attention from the
iniquitous conduot of the pretont Adminis
tration, and te implicate the Republican party
In the deplorable events that havs recently
ooourred.at Harper's Ferry, therefore, ' '
. ; Bttckttd,- That the Demooratla party are
morally guilty of the present outbreak, as the
legitimate fruit of the outrages perpetrated and
sanctioned by them on the freemen of Kansas,
i Jtolvtd, That while the Republican party
is and ever has been inflexibly opposed to the1
aggression or toe Slave power, whether dis
guised under the name of Democracy, or other
wise, we do most unequivocally condemn and
repudiate any interference with slavery in the
States where it exists. . .. , " -
Retolved, That we deprecate any appeal to
violence as derogatory to the dignity of Amer
ican cititens, believing that in the ballot-box
there Is peaoeful , and. legal remedy for all
political evils. , ; i ,
Bctolvad, That we regard the recent move
ments for the revival of the Afriosn slave
trade With abhorrence and detestation, con
demn the oonnivanoe of the General Govern
ment therewith, and hold the same to be ex
eorableand in violation of every sentiment of
Christianity and civilisation.
Rctolmd, That we repudiate at Infamons the
principles in the Dred Scott decision, and be
lieve that neither -the constitution nor the
spirit of the General Government, oonfer any
power on Congress or a Territorial Legislature
to give legal existenoe, or in any way sanation
the institution of slavery la any Territory of
the United States. .
Ruolved, That proclaiming ' our determina
tion to respect the constitutional obligations
imposed upon the States by the Federal Com
pact and maintaining the onion of the States
and the liberties of the people, we demand
the repeal of the Fugitive Slave Aot of I860,
as It is subversive of the Constitution and
spirit of our Government contrary to the
plainest duties of humanity and justice, and
abhorrent to the moral sense of the civilised
Baelvtd, That we claim for all oitUens,
both native and naturalised, the liberty' of
conscience, equality of rights and the free
exercise of snffrage; that we are in favor of
whatever legislative and administrative re
form sooessary to protect these rights, and
guard against their infringement or abuse,
and oppose any abridgment whatever of the
rights of naturalisation now secured, by law,
to emigrants, and all discrimination between
native and naturalized citizens.
Betolved, That the Administration of the
General Government, under the present Dem
ocratic rule, has beenunequaled for extrava
gance and faithlessness to the interests of
humanity and freedom, and false to the Con
stitution and laws of the community. :
Raolvtd, That having full assurance of the
justice and ultimate triumph of these princi
ples, and in fixed determination to adhere to
them through all opposition, we cordially in
vite all men to unite with us In an earnest
effort to restore ourGovernment to its original
purity. . r-
, Ssbiradi by Mirtsb's Babd. This morn
ing, at we were about putting a period to the
last page of manutoript we expected to write
for the present issue of car paper, we were sur
prised by hearing the clear tones of a cornet,
accompanied by several sax-horns, in front or
our offloe. . Mentor's Band was complimenting
us with a serenade, and their delicious muelo,
rising on the stillness of the' boor, was a de
lightful finale to our week's employment.
Menter is a prince of 'cornet-players, and his
notes this morning were many of them soft and
sweet as those of a flute. . For his kindness we
thank him, and also for the pleasant thoughts
the serenade suggested. ,

a Court of libancery to set it aside was contradictory
to the terms of the statute. A. cteditor taking this

such a conveyance to be absolutely void as to blraj

What Shall bb Donb Witi ths TJitvoBTusr
its? Father Herod, the keeper of the oity
poor-house, has the reputation, everywhere, of
feeding those under his charge on a much
higher diet than is usual in such institutions,
and the result Is, that all the paupers from
Pittsburg to St. Louis are anxious to place
themselves nnder his charge. Soarcely a day
elapses in whioh there are not one or more non
residents who apply for relief , from our . oity
authorities. What is to be done? Temporary
relief, at least, must be given, for no one must
be allowed to starve. This causes a heavy tax
upon our citlient, which they ought not, but are
of neceesity, compelled to pay. But there is
one olass cf non-resident paupers to whioh we
wish to call special attention. It consists of
females who nave no settled home, but reside
in the oity for a short time and then go to tbe
country as "help," where tbey become the vic
tim! of misplaced confidence, and are turned
loose upon tbe world homeless and friendless.
Ths country will not support them; they have
not gained a residence there; they fall back
upon the city, and it is obliged to reoelve them
or permit them to starve or steal. Several of
this olass are now in our poor-house, and an
other Is now humbly petitioning for admittance.
Shall the be rejected? ' Let the decision be
what it may, a hardship is Involved. It is not
so much the expense of a solitary individual
that is involved, but it establishes a precedence
whioh may be of incalculable mis ohief.
Vasbabts. There are a number of persons
in our oity who have no other home than the
Jail, and no sooner are they turned out than
they contrive to be sent back. Four of this
olass, Mary Bowman, Mary Smith, Jenny
Mclntyre and Bridget McMahan, ware sent
up a few days sinoe by Mayor Foley for
the period of twenty days. It is indeed la
mentable that no means can be found by
which these frail creatures can be leformed.
The Jail will not do it, and each incarcera
tion but adds to their degradation. A thor
ough change In our criminal code is needed,
a cnange mac win unite retormation with
discipline. - This subjeot ought to occupy the
teriout attention of our legislators. The ob
ject to be gained is of a magnitude whioh
ought to commend itself to the philanthro-
Sist everywhere.- It involves no less than
ie ultimate destiny of thousands of our race,
mate as wen as leruaie. 'ine first raise step
is not necessarily the fatal one, and thou
sands who have indulged in dissipation and
vice for years, might be reclaimed by proper
means. A career of vice is more frequently
the result of circumstances than free will;
and never is humanity so far sunk in deprav
ity but it has its hours of repentance, which.
if adroitly seized, could be made to work a
tnorougn retormauon.
Blavi Ihsvbbbotioh Excitihbkt id ths
Ibtbbiob. A few days since we saw a letter in
a Louisville paper, dated from Cynthiana,
Harrison County, In which it was asserted that
a slave insurrection, extending throughout the
whole interior of the State, was imminent, and
that measures had been taken to ferret out and
pnnish the leaders in the plot. Believing it to
be a canard, we took no notice of it; but yes
terday we taw tome of our old friends from
that section, who not only verified the state
ment of the anonymous writer, but also say
the plot is supposed to be even more extensive
than at first represented. ' Publio meetings
have been held and various measures adopted,
whioh are deemed necessary for the public
safety. . The exoitement Is intense , and
whether founded on a reality or not, will have
the effeot to Increase the already rapid exodus
of the blaok population toward the gulf States.

droves of hogs are constantly passing through

find ready purchasers. By the Assessor's re-
Eortfor 1859, it appears that the number of

sand greater than the previous year. This
has its effeot upon the trade, and as the pork
business promises to be brisk during the ooming
winter, packers are making arrangements ac

V Fatal ' Aooromti. A fatal accident oc
curred day before yesterday to a little boy
named George, son of B, J. Hooper. The
father and son were in ths woods hunting,
and while the former was in the act of cutting
down A tree, the little boy posted himself at a
thort distance off. The boy was unable to
eioape ths tree when it foil, and a limb struok
blm with inch violence that he died yesterday
from the effeots of the blow. 1 He was about
thirteen years of age, and an amiable lad.
His lots will be severely felt, not only by hit
5 Brents but by all who knew him; for among
ism all kt was great favorite.

was very creditable; being easy, graceful and correct,
though often leas Impassioned than they bould have
been, in our judgment.

benefit of Julia Dean waewbat Is somewhat inele

crowded with a fashionable and cultivated audience.
The fair beueflciare appeared In two of her very beat
parts "Madeleine" and "Constance;" in one moist,
enliig many an eye, and In ths other wreathing many
alio In smiles. '
We cannot think this lady plays generally with as
much flreandsplrlta she was wont; but in Knowlee's
comedy, whioh, by the by, we never much liked, ah
was all herself. There wa no mistaking her look,
her laugh, her tone, her jesture; she wa the "sweet
Julia Dean" of a few years ago, and her plailng
brought the departed lustrum to mind again.
We can not refrain from mentioning here the ex
cellent personation of "Lydia," by Mr. Vaaderen.
It wa natural, sympathetic and highly creditable
" e.see a future of prima for this deserving artist.

Thb Cobcsbt Last Night, The concert at
Smith Nixon's Ball last night by Slgnor Oorradl
Colllere wa wail attended, and the audience, which
was quite fashionable, seemed highly delighted. Mr.

a laurel to those he has already won.
Ms sweet-eyed daughter, Bertha, has Improved im
mensely since w heard her last, and her voice has
attained a line degree or cultivation. With such
teacher aa her father, and such taste and talent as
she possesses, It will be somewhat strange if a few
years do not make her a great singer.
The remainder of the performer were vehemently
applauded, and the concert wasasuocee in every
particular. - . .

There is very little business on the Stock Exchange,
though prices are rather higher to-day. At the first
board the market, though not active, advanced a
fraction; between the boards a further advance wan
caused by the bids of the street operators; in the af
ternoon prices were generally well maintained, and
the market cloned firm. The commission brokers
continue to assert that they have no orders to buy
from outside, and that the advance in Stocks is tbe
ork of street speculators exclusively. Against this
it Is but just to say that the business of tbe Western
roads Is leading to some quiet purchase of low priced
Stocks by parties who have faith in the reooveryof
that seotlou, -
There is no change in money to report. A very
few choice names, indorsed, at 60M days, go at 8H
first-class short paper geuerally at t; long paper, in
dorsed, first-class, and very choice single names, at
7; second-class paper, 810; single names, Inner
grades, at 10(5118, according to standing, Ac. Not
withstanding the cheapness of money, small houses,
not generally known, find as much difficulty as they
ever did lu obtaining discounts. Confidence is re
viving with a slowness which surprise people. - -
There is nothing doing in foreign exchange to-day.
The prospect is that tbe market will not open with
much strength for the Saturday's steamers.
