Extraordinary Idiosyncrasy—An Aristocratic
Hermit in England.
A correspondent ef the Wolverhampton
ChrcmicU says there Is a hermit living a few
miles from Stevenage, and within thirty of
the metropolis; and he thus describes a visit to
the hermit's retreat: -a.: '' i
At the termination of the road a mansion of
no ordinary slie met my view, but better and
happier times had reigned within; without all
was desolation and ruin. Time that destroyer
of all things had done its work here; every
inlet was barrioaded by the rude axe and ham
mer; its portals no living mortal had paased
for eleven long years; the interior, which was
once rich in design and comfort, is now moul
dering to decay; no cheering voice is heard
within its walls, only that of rats and vermin.
In tracing my steps to the scene of the hermit's
cell, whioh is situated at the baok of the
building, and looking through the wooden
bars of. a window devoid of glass, I perceived
a dismal, black, and dirty cellar, with an
earth floor, not one vestige of furniture except
a wooden bench and a few bottles, with the
remnant of a fire. ' .''.,.:--...
It was with difficulty,' by the faint rays of
light admitted into this loathsome den; that I
oould trace a human form, clothed only in a
horse rug, leaving his arms, legs and feet per
fectly bare; his hair was prodigiously long,
with a beard tangled and matted On my
addressing him he came forward with readi
ness. I found him a -gentleman by educa
tion end birth, and most courteous in hie man
ner. He anxiously Inquired after several
aristocratio families in Staffordshire and ad
joining counties. Itis evident he at one period
mixed in the first circles; but the secret of
his desolate retirement is, and probably ever
will remain, a mystery to his neighbors and
tenantry, by whom he Is supplied by food
(chiefly bread and milk.) . Already eleven
weary winters has he passed in this dreary
abode, his only bed being two sheepskins, and
his sole companions the rats, which may be seen
passing to and fro with all ease and perfect
safety. During the whole of his seclusion be
has strictly abstained from ablution, conse
quently his countenance is perfeotly black.
Binr Biografbt or Adiliha Path. Tbo
petite and pretty Fatti, the little phenomenon
of a few years ngo, Is thus briefly sketched in
a Now York journal:
Adolina Pattl was born at Madrid, Spain,
April 9, 1843. Her mother, Madame Barili
Pattl, was the prima donna of the Grand
Theater at Madrid, and on the evening pre
ceding the birth of Adellna, the youngest of a
large family, Madame had sung "Norma," in
whioh ro? she had a high reputation. Curi
ously enough, after the birth of Adeline,
Mme. Pattl lost her voice almost entirely, and
has always believed that it was given to the
ohild. Madame Pattl left Madrid .as soon as
possible after Adeline's birth, and returned to
Milan, the permanent residence of her family.
Here the impresario Strakosoh made the ac
quaintance of the new prima donna, then only
four months old.
Adelioawas what is called a precocious
ohild. Sbe oould sing almost before she could
speak. She caught up at the age of four all
the gems of the operas, and sang them cor
rectly. Her first publio appearance was made
at the age of nine years, when Mr. Strakosch,
Ole Bull and the infantile prima donna made
a tour in the provinoes, where Adeline sang
all the great pieces made familiar by Jenny
Lind, Sontag, Bosio and others. The little
lady created the greatest enthusiasm, and her
share of the profit amounted to twenty thou
sand dollars, which her father invested in a
country seat, the summer residence of the
family. '
At this time our prima donna received the
highest compliments from, Sontag, who told
her that she would be one of the greatest
singer in the world, and from Alboni, who
aid if the went to Pari she would make suoh
furor as is seldom seen there.

Twilvi ob Fotjbtikx Pkrsons Eillio. An
aooident recently ocourred atone of the pits be
longing to Earl Granville, at Stargreen, Han
ley Potteries, England, by which ten men
were Instantly killed, and ten others severely
injured. "A cage" containing fourteen men
was being drawn up the shaft of the "Big Pit,"
while another "cage," with six or seven men
in it, was going down at the same time. A
the asoending cage drew near the surface, the
signal bell in the engine-room sounded as
usual, in order that the engine might be at
onoe stopped. The engine-tender was, how
ever, too late in attending to his signal, and
the oonsenuence was thatone "cage" was drawn
up beyond its proper point, while the other
went to the bottom of the shaft with a heavy
shook. The asoending cage was drawn up till
it reached the wheel over whioh the rope at
taohed to it worked, and was being taken
round, when the whole fourteen men, with one
exception, were preolpitated beneath. Six fell
down the shaft and were dashed to pieces.
Three fell on the, pavement at the pit's month,
and one on the iron pavement and were killod
on the spot. Four who were thrown on the
ground received fearful injuries. The occu
pants of the descending "cage" were all more
or less injured by their fall, but none of them
were killed. Medioal assistance was soon pro
cured, and everything that oould be done for
the injured men was done without any loss of
time. The engine-tender, whose negligenee
led to the accident, has been taken into cus
tody, i ' - . : . : . ; .
Ait Amtikioos Pio. On the 20th of Sep

she oould not be found anywhere. On the
29th of October some of the men on the farm
began to cnt into a straw stack, when to their
astonishment they found the lost pig, im
bedded eight or nine feot in the straw, where
she had existed for thirty-three day without
food or water. When found she had lost sev
eral stone in weight, but otherwise seemed
perfeotly healthy.

Tbi Ihqdisition Rivivid in Austria Ex'
oumiti Hapsbuboian Tobttjbks. In 1687 tho
most noble persons, the men of highest reputa
tion, and the brave captains who had fought
in the war ef Independence, were led on to the
scaffold, either together or separately, with
victims of si lower class. Some were dragged
out and lengthened on ladders expressly mado
to dislocate the limbs; others baa their headx
bonnd with oords or fillet of metal, until
their eyes started from the sockets. They
were hanged by the hands to gibbets, and
enormous weight attaohed to their feet, while
the hangman burned their arm-pits with wax
tapers, or, shook over the unhappy men torches
of pitch and rosin, whioh bedowed them with
a liquid shower of fire. Thoywore tortured
with red-hot pincers, and steel blados or
nails, rained to a white heat, which wero
thrust between the nails ef their fingers and
tees. Many, half-roasted and half-lacerated,
died under the torture. Leopold's delegate
offered six hundred florins to any one who in
vented a new punishment, and one of those
tortures, the most atrocious of all those des
cribed by tbe historians, make our hair stand

Cowabdiok of tbb Wolf in a Tbap. When
the wolf is once within a trap, it booomos the
most cowardly of animals, end will permit
itself to be handled without showing the least
signs of animation, or attempting to resist tho
hand of Its destroyer. The sensation of im
prisonment appears to deprive it of all energy,
and it sometimes happens that a trapped
wolf is so entirely destitute of self-control,
that it has permitted the huntnr to drag it
from the trap nd to rnakae it lie pannival; by
his side,-' whilo he resets the trap for the
occupancy of another victim. On one
occasion, a pitfall trap con-tained two
occupants, one a wolf and the other a
poor old woman, who had unfortunately
fallen into the pit when returning from her
work. The wolf was so cowed by finding
himself entrapped, that it made no attompt
to injure its fellow-prisoner, but lay quietly
at the bottom of the pit, and was shot in tho
morning by a peasant.
$50,000 OrriRsr for thi Keleabi ok Old
Johit Broth. Here is another Virginiacanard.
A olgar dealer at Richmond, Va., who is "re
cently from Newburyport, Boston and other
Masaaahnsetts townB," has informed his south
em friend that $50,000 are pledged to any
party who will land John Brown safe and
sound in the oity of Boston. He says, too,
that secret meetings are being held In various
places, and the leaders are endeavoring to hire
men to go to Charlestown to effect the roloase
of Old John. He says that some of these
leaders went to a briok-yard, where a number
of Irishmen were employed, and offered them
liberal pay, besides a ehanoe in the division of
the $50,000, if they would join a band for the
purpose. The laborers, after hearing thoir
story, promptly replied that they oould not be
hired to fight negroes or for negroes; if they
(the leaders) wanted any thing of the kind
done, they had better do it themselves.
Dispirati Lbap er a Thiif froh a Rail
road Train. A few days ago a desperate
charaoter, known about Pittsburg as Loafer
Bell, was being transferred from that oity to
Ohio to be delivered to the authorities of that
State to answer to a oharge of robbery, and
when near CoBhoctou, Ohio, finding the door
of the car open, he dashed through it, both
hobbUd and handcuffed as he was. It was
pitch dark at the time, and the train going at
a high rate of speed, so that it seems almost
impossible to have taken such a step without
either being maimed for life or instantly
killed. Bell was neither maimed nor killed,

Asms fob Viroutia. We saw at Adams's
Express Office yesterday ten boxes of Sharpe's
rifles, six boxes of ammunition to match, four
oases of Colt' revolvers, and four easeB of oa
tridges, marked for Harper's Ferry. So it
seems that Virginians are not too prond to
nse Yankee-made rides and Yankee-made
powder and ball. We understand that these
arms were purchased by the State of Virginia,
and are nrobably intended to arm the vol
unteer militia of Charlestown. It looks as if
hasty preparations were making to receive that
large body of Ohio resouers who are expected
at Harper's Ferry on or before the 2d of De-

Cassel was referred to a committee. In Prus
