A Child-Wise Letter.
Lydia Maria Child, who received a diplo
matic letter from Gov. Wise, whioh has caused
much comment here and general approval, we
believe, with most of her own sex, Is resolved
to have the last word and the longest talk.
She replies oharaoteristloally in the Tr6un,
through a column and a half against "Slave
Power," concluding as follows:
, ''The people of the North had a very strong
attachment to the Union; but, by your des
perate measures, you have weakened it beyond
all power of restoration. They are not your
enemies, as you suppose, but they cannot oon
sent to be your tools for any Ignoble task you
may choose to propose. You must not judge
of us by the crawling sinuosities of an Ev
erett; or by our magnificent hound, whom you
trained to hunt your poor cripples, and then
sent him sneaking in a corner to die not with
shame for the base purpose to which his
strength had been applied, but with vexation
became yen withheld from him the promised
bone. Not by such as these must you judge
the free enlightened yeomanry of New Eng
land. A majority of them would rejoice to
have the Slave States fulfill their oft-repeated
threat of withdrawal from the Union. It has
ceased to be a bugbear, for we begin to despair
of being able, by any other process, to give
the world the example of a real republic. The
moral sense of these States is outraged by
being aecomplioes in sustaining an institution
vioious in all its aspects; and it is now gen
erally understood that wo purchase our dis
grace at a great pecuniary expense. If you
would only make the offer of a separation in
serious earnest, you would hear the harty re
spose of millions. 'Go, rtntlemen, and
Htand not upon the oruer of your going,
liut go at once.'
Yours with all due respect,
L. MARIA CHILD."

Gkrrit Smith. A correspondent of the Syra
cuse Journal says that, previous to being eon
veyed to Utlca, "Mr. Smith had been quite
sick for some ten'days with 'brain fever,' and
for most of this time quite delirious; but think
ing he might soon recover, nothing was said
about it out of the family, but getting no bet
ter, and perhaps worse, some of bis most in
timate friends were called in to see him. The
great theme of conversation was Harper's
Ferry and the transaotions connected there
with. He recognized bis friends, grasped them
frantically by the hand, and told them they
saw him for the last time; that he was a poor
wretch, not fit to live; that he had not a friend
on earth or in heaven; that the next night he
should be In Baltimore and undergo the most
exoruoiating torments that it was possible for
human beings to inflict; that be had deeply
wronged his neighbors ia his ordinary deal
ings, Ac .
Now all who know Mr. Smith intimately,
know that in his ordinary transactions with
his neighbors no man has been more honorable
or more generous, and his uniform kindness to
the poor in his vioinity is proverbial. Whether
he had any more to do with the Harper's Ferry
insurreotlon than wih "wronging his neigh
bors," of course is not known, but one thing
is certain, personally, no man in, the country
Is more loved or respected.
The report that Mr. Smith has attempted
violence to his persn, so far as I hear, is
without foundation. ' '
Tub Catholic Statu op Eubopi. The
Catholic States of Europe and their colonial
dependencies are assessed to the amount of
$2,722,163 toward the support of the Papal
Oovernment. This is an addition to taxes
levied on imports, wines, lands, Sco., within
the Papal States. The income derived from
these sources, native and foreign, in 1789,
amounted to $5,843,073. The receipts in 1856
were $12,624,737, which did not quite equal
the expenditures. The Pope receives about
$800,000, out of whioh he has to provide for
the entertainment of the Cardinals, the main
tenance of the Swiss Guard, and pensions to
persons employed in the ohurohes, palaoes,
museums and other institutions. He takes
$4,000 for bis personal expenses and sacerdotal
vestments. The army costs about $2,000,000,
and consists of about $16,000 men.
A Sahouihaby VnxiGi. There are few
villages in the country, if any, says the Lou
isville Courier, where as many deeds of blood
have been perpetrated as at Bardstown, Hy.
Within a half scoreof years as many men have
met a violent death. Among these we re
member that Robert Logan Wicklifie shot Pat
Gray; that James Pottinger was killed by Geo.
Wilson; this was followed by a fight between
The. Wilson and Lud. and Monroe Able, in
which Wilson was killed. In less than a year
Lud. Able was killed by John Wilson, a
brother of the deceased. Wm. Hardin and
John Robertson had a street fight, in whioh
Hardin was mortally stabbed, and died in
few days. And last, as we have recorded,
John Talbott was slain by Thomas Hinds
Slaughter, in his own house.
Important Will Cabs Dkoidid. An im
portant and singular will oaso has been before
the Greene County (Ohio) Court of Common
Fleas, for two weeks past. Riohard Ran
dolph, a relative of the famoni John Ran
dolph, of Roanoke, died in Greene County last
year. By his will he bequeathed all his prop
erty, valued at about $75,000, to his exeoutor,
Wm. Knott,to be applied to purchasing the'free
dom of all the living slaves of tho Randolph
family, of Virginia. Viotor Randolph, a
brother of the deceased, living in Virginia, is
trying to break the will on the ground of the
alleged insanity of the deoeased. The case
was fully investigated, and the jury returned a
verdiot sustaining the will.
A CoifNicTicuT MvBTiar. The Bridgeport
(Conn.) Farmer, without giving name or dates,
tells a story of a beautiful lady of that oily
who was deceived into marrying scoundrel
from another State and who separated from
him and returned to Bridgeport, the fellow fol
lowing her and annoying her in all sorts of
ways. Last Saturday she visited friend in a
neighboring town and retired for the night.
The next morning she was , not to be found,
and it is supposed her husband got at her,
drugged her and earried her off. ' '
Irdiotio fob Sxditioh. The Grand Jury
of Norfolk, Va., have indicted S. Danenburg,
who keeps a olothlng and shoe store in Mar
ket Square, for seditious language circulated
to incite insurrection. The counts in the in
dictment eharge him with having used these
words: "John Brown was a good man, and
was fighting in a good cause, and did nothing
bnt what any honest man would do." Danen
burg left the city a few days ago, having an
intimation that he had got himself into
trouble. .
Tkirdti op Rbspsot tothslatiG. G. Porw
diitkr. The oitirens of Nashville assembled
on last Saturday for the purpose of paying a
publio tribute of respeot to the memory of the
late Geo. G. Poindexter, editor of the Chum
and Amtrtcbn. Suitable resolutions were
adopted, after which the meeting was addressed
in a few touohing and appropriate remarks by
Hon. W. H. Humphreys, Judge of the Federal
Court, by Hon. J. E. K. Ray, Swetary of
SUte, and by N. Y. Cayltt, of Weakley County.
Hkarts. We see it stated by some wise
acre, that the heart of man weighs about
nine ounces, that of a woman eight. As age
increases, a man's heart grows heavier, and a
woman's lighter, after thirty. Some girls lose
heirs at sixteen.
Diath or a Csntenarian Lonostitt or
Dibtihodishid Wouih. Mrs. Wilson, who
died at Wilson's Mills, Maino, the other day,
at the are of one hundred and four. leas four
months, was born a subject of George Ia, and
was neany live years old when that monarcn
left his earthly orown for, let us hope, a
heavenly one. She was almost a woman wk en
Napoleon was born, was in her twenty-first
year when Independence was declared, wat'
verging on middle life when Washington
became President, was nearly fifty-nine years
when Jackson beat the British, and was sixty
four when Maine beoame a State. Women
seem to wear better than men. There was
Terentia, Cicero's unruly spouse, who lived to
one hundred and three; and Junia Tertia, the
widow of Cassius, and sister of Brutus, who
completed her century, surviving her husband
some sixty-four years; and Lettice Knollys,
Leicester's last wife, andmotherof Elizabeth's
Essex, who died at ninety-five; and lady
Desmond, who got as far as one hundred and
forty, and then was cut off by imprudently
climbing a cherry tree, from whioh she got a
fall, bringing on a fever, the only fruit of her
exertions. Mrs. Hamilton, widow of Alex
ander Hamilton, lived for nearly a century;
and Mrs. Morris, who, as Mary Phillipse, is
said to have been Washington's first love,
died at ninety -six. .Boston Traveller, Nov. 20.

The fire at Atlanta, Ga., Wednesday night,
originated in a drag store near Shackelford's
auction rooms, and burnt to the Fulton Bank.
The Inttlligencer newspaper office is in ruins,
and two of the next blocks up Whitehall
street. The flames then spread from Markam
oorner up Alabama-street to Dunn's grocery,
and thence up Whitehall-street to Holbrook's
hat store. The principal property destroyed
was Miller Jc Co.'s printing office, Brown &
Miller's mnsio store, White k Co.'s dry goods
store, Brown's olothlng store, Wallace's hard
ware store, Lookhart's broker's office, Shackel
ford's auction rooms,Coleman's grocery, Jones's
book store, Deehoug's Daguerreotype gallery,
Frisbe's law office, Cutting's dry goods store,
several confectioneries, tailor and barber shops.
On Alabama-street two ohlldren were burnt to
death, and another is missing. The mother of
the children was awfully burnt, but still sur
vives. The loss is estimated 'at $300,000.
The entire Coleman oorner, down to Fulton
Bank, is in ruins.
Rowdixb Emplotbd at English Eliotions.
It appears, according to developoment. in re
gard to the reoent Parliamentary election In
England, that New York and Baltimore are
not alone in the employment of "roughs" as a
portion of the eleotion machinery. It was
testified to before a committee that the num
ber of "roughs" employed by the Contervativei
daring the Wakefield (England) election com
menced with eighteen and ended with six
hundred. The Liberals, it was slated, engagod
more men three to one. Each side set forth
that they hired the men to protect thoir friends,
but it is also stated that the house of every
Conservative was marked with a oross, and,
of course, scenes of violence followed. In this
borough a Bhoemaker and his son were offored
$800 for their votes
-. Naw Orakok Trade. Since the discovery
of gold in California, a large trade in orangoi
has sprung up between that country and the
Society Islands. About five million oranges
are annually exported, for which about $7 50
per thousand is paid, delivered on board ship.
The fruit grows luxuriantly In every direc
tion. The natives formerly made an intoxi
cating liquor, called orange rum, from it.
The orange season commences in February
and ends in September, during which time
the trees may be seen at once in the various
stages of blossoming, green and half yellow,
and ripe fruit.
Singular Ocular Affliction. A young
man named Alfred Walters, of Clearfield, has
lately become the subject of a most singular
and serious affliction, being a paralysis of
the eyelids, which refuse to obey the muscles,
whose office it is to raise the lids, and open
the eyes; and the consoquence is, he is una
ble to open the eyes except as he raises the
lids with his hand. This remarkable afllio
tion of the organs of sight came as sudden as
it was unexpected, and without apparent
cause, and was first felt after indulging in a
neavy yawn.
