lit Success ov Adelika Patti. Our read
ers doubtless remember little Patti, the child
like phenomenon, who delighted our concert
goers a few years ago, and r aware of her
successful debut in Now York as "Luoia," in
Donisetti't Opera. Monday's New York
Timet says of the fair Adelina :
M'lle Patti it probably the youngest prima
donna we have ever had on the American
lyrio stage, being scarcely yet sixteen. She
is extremely petit and pleasing in appear
ance ; a brunette of the warmest Southern
type, with flashing eyes and quick instincts.
Many of our readers will remember the lady;
the has been before the public as a child
vocalist for many years. Her proficiency in
tho art of singing has always been remarka
ble, and but for her diminutive stature, might
have made her theatrical debtu long ago. In
a debutante we do not look for the perfection
which we now find In Adelina Patti.
To a pure soprano voise ef rare flexibility
has been added a solid eduoation, based on the
grandest and best sohools of Italy. Henoe it
appens that at the present moment she Is a
finished artist, a most brilliant vocalist, better
in some respeots than any other in America,
Her powers of execution and ber voloe, both
in compass and quality, are of the first olass.
Donizetti's "Luoia" is so far the only opera In
which M'lle Patti has appeared. We have had
no better 'Lucia' slnoe the early days of Boslo,
Her sucoens was of the most pronounced kind t
ber performance almost freo from a fault. A
veritable sensation was the result, and it ii
clear that the fortunate managers have played
a trump card.
EVIDENCE OF INSANITY IN BROWN'S FAMILY.
The Boston Traveller of Saturday says:
"George H. Hoyt, Esq., of this city, counsel
for Capt, Brown, arrived home this morning.
He has procured at Akron and othor places in
Ohio, the affidavits of eighteen different indi
viduals, going to show in the clearest manner
that Brown's family on the mother's side had
exhibited insanity in many instanoes. His
grandmother was insane for six years before
her death, and died in that condition. Three
of her children were insane, and another of
her children had Insane children, cousins of
Capt. Brown. The only sister of Brown was
also liable to attacks of insanity. Several of
tbe witnesses, relatives or intimate acquaint
ances of Capt. Brown himself, testify to certain
facts which, In their opinion, go to showoloar
ly that the hereditary taint exists In htm.
Mr. Hoyt had an intervlow with Gov. Wise
on Wednesday, and placed In his hands these
affidavits. The Governor assured Mr. H. that
he wonld give them the most careful consider
ation. By a law of tbe State he has the power,
if satisfied that sufficient reasons exist there
for, on the ground of Insanity, to postpone the
execution aud have the faot of insanity passod
upon by a jury.
STBANOg SUICIDI OF A YoDNQ WlFI. MiSS
Raobel Morris, a daughter of a respectable
widow, residing at Springwater, N. I., was
lately married to a physioian named Lewis,
residing at St. Louis, and went to that oity to
veBide with her husband. A conple of weeks
slnoe she returned on a visit to her mother,
apparently in good health and spirits. Her
husband did not come with ber, but arrived on
Saturday last. On Taelday morning, Mrs.
Lewis entered her mother's room and said she
had taken a dose of arsenic, which wonld put
an end to her life. Medioal aid was imme
diately called, and the most energetic and
skillful means employed to put the deadly
poison from the system, but without success.
The unhappy lady died three hours after stt al
lowing the poison.

MlROHANNT WITH HEB HUSBAND'S CLEBK
Mrs. B., the wife of a merchant of New York
City, becoming enamored some time Bince of
a young and handsome clerk, employed
in the oonoern, received his attentions, and
finally eloped with him yesterday to parts un
known. The man, who, nnder the garb of
friendship, would seduce but d n the senti
ment, as Sir Peter Teazel would say. Tbe
hitherto apparently loving wife left a note be
hind, or rather a letter of oonsolation for her
husband.
Singular Hallucination. There is in San
Franoitoo a man of considerable ability, named
Norton, who in 1850 was one of the .wealthy
men of California, but who is now reduced to
poverty and Insanity. His hallucination is
quite harmless, however, and leads him to
imagine himself tha Bmperor of the United
Slates. Every few days he issues a manifesto
through the press, and tbe faot that none of
them are heeded by his subjects seems not to
discourage him In the least.
Elevating. Influence op Love or Wouin.
Mrs. Crowe says: "Thero is nothing so eleva
ting to a woman as the love of a truly great
and noble man. The worship she pays him,
whether it be that of friendship or of love,
exalts her mind, and fills her soul with a holv
joy ; there is nothing so degrading, so crush
ing to tne spirit, as to re me slave ot a cnuri."
Whatever effect the divino passion may have
upon the gentle, it often depresses and de
grades the stornor sex.
A Capital Shot. The bost shot we have
ever heard of in the way of duck shooting,
was made by M. A. Howell, of Ottawa,
Illinois, an Saturday, near Utica, N. Y.
With a single dlsoharge of one barrel hs killed
twenty-five teal ducks, twenty four of whloh
where bagged, and one could not be reoovered.
Two others were evidently wounded, but not
enough to prevent them from flying off.
Silvib Wedwno or Ex-Governor Hunt.
There was a large social gathering at the man
sion of Governor Hunt, in Lookport, N. Y,,
the other evening. The ocaasion was the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the matrimonial
alliance of the Governor and bis lady. The
guests comprised not only a large number of
personal friends at home, but also from various
sections of New York State.
Tub Gkntliuax. Thackeray asks: What is
it to be a gentleman? It is to be honest, to be
gentle, to be generous, to be brave, to be wise,
and possessing all these qualities, to exeroise
them in tht most graceful manner. Ought a
gentleman to be a loyal ton, a true husband
and an honest father? Ought hit life to be
decent, his bills paid, his tastes to be elevated
and elegant, his alms, in life lofty tnd noble?
A Just Movement. The clerks and book
keepers of Norfolk, Va., are making desper
ate efforts to procure a repeal of the act of
Assembly, which Imposes a heavy tax upon
their salaries; in many instances mere pittances.
They have held a publlo meeting, pasted reso
lutions and drawn up a memorial to be pre
sented to the next Legislature asking a repeal
of the obnoxious law.
An Unfortunate Family. S. D. Foss, of
West Alton, N. H., on Saturday was knooked
down by a hetfer, and had bis neok broken.
On tht same day, brother of Mr. Foss was
driving an ox team, when tbe oxen became
frightened, threw him down, and tha wheels
of the oart passing over bis body, fatally in
juring blm. Two othor brothers of the same
tamiiy aito lost tneir lives ny an accident.

Pbbbent A8pict or Akpaibs at Charlies
town, Va. The , military occupation of
Charleetown has had the effect of suspending
business, closing the churches, and depopu
lating the school-houses ; the latter having
been turned into barracks for the troops.
Preparations are going forward for the exe
cution of Brown. A general ordor, issued by
Gen. Taliaferro, announces that that officer
has assumed the supreme command ot tho
forces quartered in that town, and pays a
compliment to the military skill of Colonel
Davis, by way of compensation for depriving
him of his command. Our latest advices an
nounce a rapid and formidable concentration
of troops at Charlestown, to withstand an at
tempt at rescue, of which Gov. Wise and Mr.
Andrew Hunter profess themselves to be re
liably instructed.
The students of the Univorsity of Virginia,
eager to uphold tho honor of the Common
wealth have tendered their services to Gov
ernor Wise in a body; but his Exoollenoy has
not yet accepted the offer. Another sus
picions peddler has been arrested, and another
barn baa been fired by the toreh of tho Incen
diary. John Brown has been visited by the
notorious Henry Clay Palo, or Kansas, with
whom he had an instant quarrel; and a Metho
dist olorgyman, Rev. Mr. Maroh, who had
called to offer Brown leligious oonsolation, bo
came so shooked at his views on slavery that
he left him with a denunciation.
Particulars opthe Wreck opthk Stkamkr
Indian Twenty-seven Lives Lost. The
wreok of the steamship Indian proves to have
been a very serious disaster. Twenty-Beven
livos were lost; tbe victims being chiefly stoer
age passengers. All the oabln passengers are
saved. Five of the crew, who had taken
refuge in one of the boats, were picked up by
the British sohooner Wave, and taken into
Boston. Thcirstatemonts show that thesteamer
strnok while running at a speed of eight knots
per hour, and that the Captain was doooivod
by the soundings, having supposed himself to
be off Cape Sable.
The ship filled almost instantly, and in the
rush for the boats three were swamped. The
statements of the Captain and Purser confirm
the story of the seamen in all essential par
ticulars. Tho accounts agree in stating that
the morning was dark ami hazy at the time
of tho disaster, and thut tbe loss of lifo is at
tributable to tbe panio which prevailed among
the steerago passengers. The Gladiator and
hmperor, the vessels which rescued some of
the survivors, succeeded also in securing the
mails of tbe Indian, which will be forwarded
to Portland by the steamor Admiral.
Labge Arrest op Gamblers inNkwYhrk
Confusion Amonu the Fancy. On Saturday
afternoon a nest of gemblors, who have for
yoare ocoupiod a den over Clarke's exchango
office, corner of Chatham andChambeu-stroots,
was suddenly thrown into oonaternatlon by the
appearance of the police, led by Officer Bar
tholomew, of the City Hall squad. Some
twenty-five persons were found in the place,
half of whom were engaged in gambling, with
all the paraphernalia of their business on the
table before them. The officers seizod a por
tion of the apparatus. The dealing-box was
poeketed by one of the gamblers, and all at
tempted a precipitate flight, several of them
jumping out of the second-story windows on
the Chatham and Chambers-street side, while
the officers were trying to shut tbe windows,
others scampered pell-mell down stairs, tumb
ling over each other In their hasto to reash tbe
street. The police euooeededin nabbing eleven
persons, who were conducted before the Re
N. Y. Times, 28th.
Arrest or a Free-State Man in Viroinia.
It appears from the tone of a number of our
Southern exchanges that to be a native of a
free State is just now a crime the other side of
Mason and Dixon'sline. Hardly a day passes
that we do not read of persons being "ordered
to leave" or consigned to jail for no other of
fense. On Friday last a man named Rood,
who had been in Charlottesville a week or
two getting subscribers for the Electic Maya
sine, being made the object of a suspicion on
the part of some, that his designs wero not
entirely proper, was taken bofore Justice
Lobban for examination. Witnesses testified
as to his conduct, and papers found on his
person were examined, all of which, In the
opinion of the Justice, created a ground of
suspicion sufficient to warrant bim in com
mitting the party to jail.
Pkculiar and Interesting Suit. A suit of
a most novel character has been commoncel
in tho county of Macon, Ills. Tho action is
brought by Philip B. Shopherd against Mat
thow J. Ryan. The declaration avers "that
Matthew J. Ryan promised the plaintiff that
if said plaintiff would resign the office of post
master of Decatur, and procure the appoint
ment of John Ryan, father of the defendant,
that the defendant would pay to said Shep
herd five hundred dollars." Shephord re
signed and procured the appointment of said
John Ryan, thus fulfilling his portion of the
contract; but upon calling upon Matthow J,
Ryan for the p.tyment of the stipulated $500,
it wag refused.
More ShooTiNa and Cutting Appravb in
Mississippi. A shooting and cutting affair
took place recently at Raymond, between Dr.
Reynolds and Dr. R. E. Fullerton. Dr. R. re
ceived two shots in the breast, and Dr. F. was
badly cut. Fullerton is recovering, but it Is
thought Reynolds is beyond the reach of hu
man skill.
A difficulty also ooourred in Raymond tho
same afternoon bolween Mr. Gray, formerly
Mayor of the town, and Mr. Thomas Ford,
during whioh Gray shot Ford twioe, the balls
striking his head and glanoing off, inflicting a
dangorous wound.

NAPOLEON AND THE POPE.—The Florence
correspondent of the London Times, writing
under date of November 4, says:
The news we have from Rome bodes no good
to the speedy conoootion of tbe oontomplated
federative bolus which the French Emperor
would prescribe as the panacea for all Italian
disorders. A communication was made to the
Pope of the letter addressed to the King of
Sardinia by Naiwleon III that very letter
which weighs so heavily on tbe hearts of many
Italian patriots. The Pope, I have it from
good authority, was raised to tha highest pitch
of that sinful wrath which in his encyollcals
he usually styles "holy sorrow." He reoeived
the Duke de Gramont on tbe following day
without any show of that blandneaa and
courtesy whioh aro due to diplomatists under
even the greatest provocation, and of which
Pius IX is known to bo a most consummate
master. He said that, if that letter was a
Droofof tha Kmntrnr'i f. th.ll.itn ,u. it,-
Catholic Church had nothing more to bops
uigo, uu uiuei mereiora an me mort
firmly and fervently put ber trust in God. He
added that "for himsolf, ht was ready at any
time to take refuge in tbe catacombs, as so
many of bis very earliest predecessors had
done. (Mind well, this is a stereotyped
throat, a net phraso with the good Pontiff
whenever he is vexed.) He oonoloded by de
fying the Emperor, through his Embassador,
to do his worst, as be had to deal with a man
who would prove as willingly a martyr before
the nephew as Pius VII had been in prosonoe
of the uncle. ,
The Distance op a Star. Dr. Kruger hat
recently ascertained the distanoo of tho binary
star known as 70 Opbiuohus : This steris out
of a bright cluster in tho right shoulder of
the constellation Ophiuchus, and has long
been regarded with intorest by astronomers
on account of its being ono of tbo first-olasi

This star offered the samo inducement to
moasure its distanco, as the othor fow stars
whoso distance has bcon determined. Dr.
Kruger finds tho mass of the binary Bysteiti
to bo a litllo loss than throo times that of our
sun, and its distance from us to bo sbovo one
million two hundred thousand limes that of
the earth's mean distanco from the sun n.
distance that would require light nineteen
yoars to pass over, flying constantly at the

SUICIDE OF GAMESTER AT A GERMAN WATERING
PLACE.—A German correspondent of a
New York paper writes in a late letter:
reminds me of the fate
of a man who has played a oonspicuous part
during the pRst season at tho gaming tables of
Hombourg, and who was particularly noticed
lor his rash and ranklAan nia h. jn.ni.
the immense advantages whioh the proprietors
v. ,uBi.vuiuuuig aaiuuoB uom oui tpiaying tne
roulette with but a single O,) not only could
not win, but has lost during the eoason about
$200,000. This man's name was Garcia, the
son of a rich banker in Madrid, and having
played out all the money he could raise, ho
finished tbe game a few mornings since by
drowning himself in the waters of the Maine.
But the wheel continues turningat Baden and
Hombourg, and the little ivory ball, with its
death-like rattlo, seeks out the fated number,
and tbe excited players orowd the tables with
just as much eagerness as though poor Garoia
had not lost his fortune, and then thrown him
self after it.
A Stock-brokkr's Thanksoivino Sermon.
0a the morning of the day before Thanksgiv
ing a Boston broker delivered a short address
at the oponing of the morning session of tbe
Board, as follows :
"Fellow-laborers: We have met here at the
eleventh hour to do our business, and then to
go about our business. To-morrow sohool
don't keep. That day will, or ought to be, de
voted to thanks-paying, alms-giving, roast
turkey and plum-pudding. Let us be truly
thankful for existence, reason, spirituality,
health, happiness, property, commissions, shel
ter, raiment, food, books, newspapers, social
intercourse and loving helpmates. Let the
poor bo thankful that tbey are no poorer; let
tbe rich bs thankful that they are no richer;
the shorts that they are no shorter, and the
longs that tbey are no longer short.
"This is about the 'iong and short' of my
impromptu discourse a sort of grace before
meat. Let us now proceed to business, with
what eagerness we will; and may 'good diges
tion wait on appetite, and health on both.'"

A New Dinner Doboe. An avarioious fel
low in Brussels gave a large dinner recently.
.1 ust as the. guests sat down a piercing shriek
was board ia the court yard. The host hurried
out and returned pale, affrighted, and his hands
oovorod with blood. "What is Hi" was tbe
inquiry. "Alas I" he said, "a poor workman,
father of a largo family, has met with a terri
ble acoident. He was knooked down by a oart
and grievously wounded. Let us aid him."
A collection was taken up, and the guests con
tributed 1,200 francs. Generous souls 1 It was
the miser's ruse to make them pay for the din

followed by a erowd of men, beaten in-a hor
rible manner, and finally seized by them,
when one of the number stabbed him in tbe

stroying his life. Fortunately his cries of
distress were heard, and he was roscued.
