Attempt to Mob Wendell Phillips.
A correspondent' of the New' York Tribune,
writing from Port Richmond, Staton Island,.on
the 6th, says; . .
There was an attempt to create a disturb
ance here last evening, upon the occasion of a
leoture by Wendell Phillips. An incendiary
article appeared last week in the Kichnwnil
vouniif uazette directly inciting a mob, and to
that article the trouble is to be attributed.
The apprehension of trouble deterred great
numbers of people from attending, who were
very anxious to hear Mr. Phillips, and, upon
his arrival at the church, a crowd was assem
bled around the door, A large part of the
crowd was composed of the most respectable,
intelligent, and substantial oltizons, of all
parties, of the island, who were determined
that the rights of free speeoh should be re
speoted. A young man, evidently exoited
with liquor, cried oat as Mr. Phillips entered
the gate, "This is Mr. Wendell Phillips!" and
others exclaimed that he wonld not be allowed
to deliver his leoture. . The rioters confined
themselves to threats.
During the. evening a few window-panes
were broken by the boys outside, who also
groaned, and played a penny trumpet. Upon
retiring, a denso crowd surrounded the orator,
and .when ha had fairly driven off ' oat of
sight,' there1 were a few cries of 'Toll him

A Riot Thriatrnkti at ths Old Bowrrv
Thbateb. Monday's New York Tribune ob
serves : The Old Bowery Theater bills of
Saturday contained the following announce
ment : " For the first time, a peculiarity, in
cluding a grand tableau illustrative of the
life and death of the lion. D. C. Broderiok,
entitled Three Eras In the Life of a Fire
man."
This announcement displeased some of the
friends of the late Mr. Broderick, and several
of them on Saturday waited on tho managers
of the theater with a request to have the piece
withdrawn, but railing in this, tney withdrew.
Later in the day Capt. Dowling, of the Sixth
Precinct, received positive information that the
mends ol tne deceased gentloman, at all liai
arda, would prevent the play. Information
was forwarded to Police Headquarters, and
reserve lorce was ordered to bold themselves in
readiness at the Sixth, Fourteenth, and other
precincts. : Capt. Dowling then called upon tne
managers of the theater, and informed thorn of
the probable result, should they persist in
bringing out the piece, end they finally con
sented to withdraw it. At night the theater
was densely crowded from pit to gallery, and
even in the lobbies ; but other pieoes were sub
stituted, and everything passed off in an or
derly manner.
' Jobk Brown's Fair Bealid. Researches
into the obscure portion of Virginia law whioh
relates to the crime ol treason, nave brought to
light the fact that tho pardoning power in the
oases of John Brown and of Coppece, resides
not in the Governor, but in tho Legislature.
As tne Legislature only meets in the earlier
fort-night of January, as Brown's sentence
to be executed on the 2d of December, and as
there is no likelihood of an extra session being
summoned, the fate of the leading insurrection
ist may be regarded as sealed. A correspond
ent of the Boston Traveller, who was in
Charlostown last week, assures us that Brown
Is entirely reconciled to that fearful result. We
f;ive another Installment of documents portain
na to thebistoryof therebellion. The Boston
A It u and Bee publishes a letter wiitten by
Jirown to a uuakeress in Rhode island, from
whom he had received a sympathizing letter.
Brown attributes his defeat to a want of mili
tary skill and foresight, but insists that he
took up arms in a righteous cbubb, and expresses
his firm oonviotion that his motives were just.

A ARa Rkwabd Ofprrkd for Gidmnos's
IIrad. The following remarkable advertise
ment appears in the Richmond (Va.) Whig:
$10,000 Rrward. Joshua R. Uiddings hav
ing openly declared himself a traitor in
leoture at Philadelphia, on the 28th of Octo
ber, and there being no prooees, strange to
say, by which ha can be brought to justice,
propose to be one of one hundred to raise
$10,000 for his safe delivery in Richmond, or
$5,000 for the production of his head. I do
not regard this proposition, extraordinary as
it may first seem, either unjust or unmerciful.
The law of God and the Constitution of his
country both condemn him to death.
For satisfactory reasons I withhold my name
from the publio,but it is in hands of the editor
of the Richmond Vfhitj, There will be no
difficulty I am sure in raising the $10,000 upon
a reasonable prospect of getting the said Uid
dings to this oity.
Bqdinr Crmsus op thi World. The fol
lowing curious account is given In Appleton't
Cyclopaedia, of the number of horses in the
various parts of the world:
The general estimate has been eight to ten
horses in Europe for every hundred inhab
itants. Denmark has forty-five horses to every
hundred inhabitants, which is more than any
other European country.. .', Great Britain and
Ireland have 2,500,000 horses; France, 3,000,
000; Austrian Empire, exclusive of Italy, 2,600,
000; Russia, 3,500,000. t The United States
have 5,000,000, which is more than any Euro
pean country. The horses of the whole world
are estimated at 57,540,000.
A Kissing Kino. One of the letters
Arthur Lee, who was in London at the time
the ascension of George III, says :
The young King has committed but one
error. Instead of permitting ' the ladles
present to kiss his hand, hi salutes them him
self. Pleased with the royal touch, they flock
in such numbers to his court that he is like to
suffer for his gallantry in being kissed to
death. An effectual way this to win the hearts
of the ladies, and, consequently, of the men,
for who oan help loving suoh a polite, genteel,
geod-natured young King.
Oil Works Constjiird. The Resin Oil
Works, at Stamford, Conn., owned by Messrs.
Wadsworth, were destroyed by fire on Wed
nesday night, with their contents, including

the "man-hole" in one of the retorts or stills.
In an instant after the explosion the whole
interior of the building was a man of flames
and smoke. Several thousand gallons of oil,

. Miraculous Escapi from Dbath. A work
man in Roxbury, Mass., last week, after
having been in a well for some time, cleaning
it, started to ascend by means of the rocks
the sides. When he had olimbed about three
or'four feet the walls gave way, and he was
precipitated to the bottom, and the whole
mass of rocks oaved in on him to within a foot
or two of the top. Some six or eight men im
mediately set to work clearing out the stones
and dirt, and, after nine hour's steady work,
during whioh the voice of the buried man
oould be head eniploring them to hasten their
endeavors, he was reaohed,and delivered alive.
With the exception of a few bruises, be was
uninjured, the stones having fallen in suoh
manner as not to rest upon him.
Dkathop ah Aord Miristrr. Rev. Edward
Stout, the oldest member of the New Jersey
Annual Conference of the M. E. Church,
departed this life at his residence in Daddon
field, on the 3d inst. Though extremely
feeble for several years past, yet for the lost
few days he had seemed somewhat stronger
and more oheerfnl, so that on the morning
the day he died, he walked nearly a mile, and
conversed freely with his friends.- He sat
down with his family at the usual time
dine, when he was suddenly attacked with
paralysis, and immediately died without
struggle or a groan. He was in his seventy
fourth year, and had been in the ministry
forty-six years.
An Author's . Conhdiiial Disposal op His
Dauohtsa. An anecdote relative to the late
Prof. Wilson, (Kit North,) is just now circu
lating. When the suitor for the hand
Prof. Wilson's daughter had gained the
lady's approbation, he was, of course, re
ferred to papa. Having staled his probably
not unexpected case, the younger gentleman
was directed to desire the young lady to come
to her father, and doubtless her obedience
was prompt. Prof. Wilson had before him
for review, some work, on the fly leaf
which was duly inscribed : "With the au
thor's compliments." He tore this out,
pinned it to his daughter's dress, solemnly
led her to the young lover, and went back
his work. '

a long pointed snout; the eyes are small and

with five claws, which it uses with the facil

A Pseudo Saint—Ridiculous Fanaticism.
a
The Paris correspondent of the London Star
reports the following interesting. intelligence!
"The death of the Care d'Ars at Lyons has
caused the whole devout population of the rest
of the Empire to hurry in crowds to his tomb.
The Abbe Laoordaire, who has remained with
him for several months, was with him at hii
dying hour, and promises the most wondrous
revelations concerning the passage from life to'
death of the Saint, whose canonization already
occupies the authorities of the Churoh. : The
miracles already wroueht at the tomb of the
Cure d'Ars exceed, if any ono may believe the
iaio, Dotn in quantity and quality those once
enacted at the grave of the Diocre Paris. The
blind are made to see, th lame to walk, and
every human ill Is set at naught by a prayer
at the stone which covers the remains of the
Cure d'Ars. The Empress, who personally
declared the birth of the Prince Imperial to be
owing to this holy man's intercession, is said
to have been in dose correspondence with him
during the whole of the war. To show the
fanaticism inspired by the event of his death,
the omnibus service from Lyons to the village
whore he lived, and which was started to drive
straight to his door, has bean doubled since his
death, and drives nowhere bat to the cemetery
where bis corpse reposes. A nine days' virgil
is established for the different confrere)
throughout France, in order to facilitate the
transmission of miracles for the oonvenienoe
of those who oannot make the journey to
Lyons." . . , :

How Womrn Reoard a Nudb Pictdrb. A
writer in the New York Satnthy Preu thus
speaks of the manner of the women who visit
the Dusseldorf Gallery to see Page's Views :
I was much amused by the behavior of the
ladies with whom the Dusseldorf Gallery was
crowded on the ocoasion of my visit. Of course
they did not go there to see the Venus I Prob
ably it was the picturo of "Diana and her
Nymphs," that attraoted them all ; else why
should they have been crowded around it ?
will not be so malicious as to draw conclusions
from the faot that they admired that piature
through the backs of their heads, and that
was plaoed oxaotly opposite the Venus.
I watched the ladies, too, as they entered.
The younger ones gave it a furtive, not
indignant glance over their shoulders, as they
passed. The good-natured matrons trusted
themselves to look at it with one eye, while
others did penance for looking at it by gazing,
afterward, on tome strictly religious picture.
But your severe, antique maidens, whose age
and Spartan virtue might have been supposed
to put them beyond the danger of corrupting
thoughts, glared at the opposite side of the
room, with that slaughtering look in their eyes
that convinced me that they would have gladly
undertaken to stone Page with their own
hands, for the unpardonable sin of suggesting
mat a woman may oe younir. nandsome. and
seductive.
