Bloody and Brutal Plot—John Brown
to be Rescued—The Secret of Prof.
Lowe's Delay—The Charlestown Officers
and Jail to be Carried off.
following fair burlesque we find in one
of our exchanges. By mere aooidentjwe have
obtained possession of the following bloody
and brutal plot, conoeived by a bloody and
brutal Blaok Republican of this State:
Professor Lowe, who is now engaged in inflat
ing his monster balloon, with which he intends
uhortly to sail for Europe, has been employed
to remain in New York with his balloon until
some Hark night, wben there shall be a strong
north wind, when he la to aacend in bis bal
loon with a dozen packs of fire crackers, and
steer bis aerial ship directly for Charlestown,
Va. When near that city he is to set fire to a
pack of eraokera and throw it overboard, leav
ing them to explode on their descent to the
ground, and then to prooeed In the same man
ner with the remaining eleven packs, by which
time, it is presumed, the people at Harper's
Ferry will all be frightened to death. The
balloonist is then to desoend direotly over the
jail, make fast to it, and, ascending again,
take up the jail, with Old Brown in it, and steer
direotly for England, where he will deliver
Old Brown to tho bloody and brutal abolition
ists in that oonntry, who, it is expected, will
liouizo the old sinner by exhibiting him at
Exeter Hall, thus robbing a Virginia gallows of
its victim, and Jefferson County of its jail.
N. B. It is expeotod that the audaoity
of the bloody and brutal ebela will not stop
even here. Some of the ungodly gang sug
gest tho expediency of taking up Governor
Wise, tho militia, the judge, jury, and wit
nesses on Old Brown's trial, to be used, as oc
casion may require, for gas or ballast.
Singular Fact Concebninq thb Naviga
tion or Laks Ontario. During tbe past
twelve years, says tbe Roohester union, more
than a doten vessels have gone ashore be
tween the mouth of Genesee River and a
point a doien miles west, and in every in
stance the disaster has been attributed to a
defect in the compasses by which the vessels
were steered. We have during the period
named recorded these disasters and have ob
served the peculiar phraseology used by tho
masters in the protests they entered. Nearly
all of them declare upon oath that they made
Sod us Light and then steered north-west, a
direction that would take them well over to
Toronto, and while on this course they ran
aahorejust west of the Genesee River.
The last cases we have of this singular way
of navigating occurred last week. The schooner
Andover went ashore at Braddook's Point, and
the master swears in hia protest that he tailed
oorth-weat from Sodus Light. While the
steam tug rage was at work at the Andover on
Thursday night, the aohooner B. L, Whitman
ran ashore near by. The tug went to her as
sistance before she got hard on, and she was
relieved and went on her voyage. We under
stand that tbe Whitman, too, waa sailed by the
compass, and bearing north-west from Sodua
Light.
This peculiarity In misfortune whioh has at
tended so many shipa sailing as we have de
scribed, can hardly be attributed to derange
ment of the compasses by local causes on ship
board. May there not be some influence on
shore in tbe yloinlty to which the vessels tend,
that effects the compass, and thus mis-lead
them ? The subjeot is worthy of investigation.
Piloriuagu to MicoA. A recent publica
tion of the Ministry of Algeria and the Colo
nies make some curious statements relating to
the pilgrimages to Meoca during the present
year. The ceremonies at Mecca terminated
on the 11th of last month in the presence of
about 60,000 pilgrims, of whom 17,850 had
come by sea, and 32,150 by land. In 1858
there were 160,000 pilgrims; in 1857, 140,000;
and in 1856, 120,000. This great deorease in
the number in 1859 is owing, the natives de
dare, tc the events of Djeddah lost year, and
also to the dread of the oholera, whioh made
extensive ravages in 1858. As soon as the
pilgrim sets foot on the soil of Mecca he must
put on two piooes of white cloth, one tied
around the loins with ends hanging down to
the middle of the leg, while the other ia
thrown over the shoulder so as to leave the
right free. He must go bareheaded and wear
sandals. As long as be wears this garment
he is bound to lead a pure and regular life.
A Qurbr Millionaire Ellas Howe, jr., the
lucky fellow who gets $200,000 a year royalty
on sewing machines, is one of the odditlos on
Broadway. He is the personage whom no

Quaker-cut coat, white oravat, and almost ex
tinguished under a gigantio hat, whioh might

reaching to the shoulder blades, and inviting
people behind to give It a pull an Invitation
whioh I have, with difficulty, resisted on many

DlATR BT LlAPIRO FROM THKCaRS. A little

' Matilda, Coustxss or Toscaxy. She was
one of the noblest of women, above and beyond
her age, except in the superstitions of a reli
gious faith to whioh she had been scrupulously
duoated, and her subservienoy to a priest
hood of whioh she saw the possible good and
forgot the real evil. Austere and self-torturing,
as her ghostly advisers required, she was
wisely munificent, embellishing Tuscany with
palaces and monuments, and improving it with
bridges, hospitals, and schools. She loved and
collected books, studied with persevering dili
gence, using the Latin, Italtan, French and
German languages with equal easo, and ex
hibiting in bor judioioua patronage of tbe
learned the result of her acquaintance with
these best of teachers. Just and energetic in
the council ohamber, brave and self-collected
in tbe camp, striving to shield the oppressed
and uplift the fallen, aho afforded an example
of moral grandeur such as was seldom seen in
her century. The splendor of her reign over
almost the whole of Northern Italy, and the
glowing patriotism which sought to free her
country from foreign domination, entitle her
to tbe highest regard ; but she is still better
known for her vigorous support of the Papaoy.
From the contempt into which the Vice
Regency of Heaven had fallen, Hildebrand,
become Gregory VII, determined to resoue it.
Intense in his bigotry, arrogance and ambi
tion, bold, sagacious and dexterous, be gave
to the tiara an exterior of greater decenoy,
but he organized a despotism from the atro
cities of which the mind and hoart turn with
horror. Matilda upheld the man And ap
proved the despotism, blinded by her dread
of Germany, and quieted by the fancied sanc
tity of ecclesiastical acquirement. Yet if ahe
did mistake a vast engine of opproaeion for
the beautiful freedom bequeathed to the world
by the great Examplar of the religion which
she professed, how many erred also with her.
Practical Juki by Habriht Hosmrb on an
Unpowtual Physician. Harriet Hosmer's
health having given her father some uneasi
ness, a physioian in large praotics was called
in to attend her. The rather uncertain visits
of tbil physician proved a souroe of great
annoyanoe and some real inconvenience to his
patient, inasmuoh as they interfered with her
rides and drives, shooting and boating ciour
siont. Having borne with the inoonvenlunoe
some time, she requested the gentleman, as a
great favor, to name an hour for his call, that
ahe might make her arrangements accordingly.
The physician agreed, but punctuality 1b not
always at the command of professional men.
Matters were as bad as ever. Sometimes the
twelve o'clook appointment did not oome off
till three In the afternoon.
One day, in particular, Dr. was somo
hours after the time. A playful quarrel took
plaoe between the physician and the patient,
and he rose to take his leave, and offered
another appointment; Miss Hosmer insisted
upon his giving bis word to keep it.
"If I am alive," said he, "I will be here,"
naming some time on a certain day.
"Then if you are not here," waa the reply,
"I am to conoluile that you are dead."
Thus they parted. The day and hour ar
rived, but no doctor made his appoarance.
That evening Miss Hosmer rode into Boston,
and next morning the papers announced the
decease of Dr. . Half of Boston and its
noighborhood rushod to the physician's house
to leave cards and messages of condolence for
the family, and to inquire into the cause of
the sudden and lamentable event.
A Dauqhtkb or 6obillir Alivi It will

universal homage paid to him, sot only by tbe
50,000,000 of his countrymen in Europe, but
by tbe wide-spread German race in British and
other colonies all over the world. In the Augs

every town and place, of ber father's memory,
that she may treasure up as a heirloom for her
children these titles of true nobility.
Bold Attbmpt to Bubs thb Wash ino ton
Penitentiary. A most daring attempt was
made on Saturday to burn the United States
Penitentiary at Washington, whioh was hap
pily frustrated. The plot was laid by George
Nelson, a discharged convict, whose term of
sentence expired on the 24th ult. He entrusted
bis plans to Kelly, and on Saturday night at
the hour named, appearod at the east wall and
attempted to get over and set the out-buildings
on fire. Kolley had previously divulged the
plan, and when it was attempted, Nolson and
an accomplice were taken, the former being
shot in the back during the scuffle that en
sued. .
A Devil ok a Doctob Phobphorvs and
Physic A German doctor, supposed to be a

was recently called upon by Mr. Peter
Reed to attend his daughter for sore throat.
The doctor attempted to apply phosphorus,
which ignited, set the girl's clothing on fire,
burnt her person severely, and also set the
house in flames. So dieguated was he with
his ill success with tbe phosphorus and his
great success with the fire that he attempted to
blow his brains out the next dav. and was
only prevented, it is supposed, by a lack of
sornotning to diow.
A Neobo Drowns Himself from Reuorsr.
The negro waiter who was guilty of the mean

below Hudson, N. Y., some persons were tan

suddenly gnasned bis teeth, hurriedly left

Sosed was struck by the wheel, stunned and
rowned.

The Phenomena of Honger Its BMiri-
oinoe and Malevolence. This clear and inter
esting statement ot the cause and phenomena
of hunger is taken from Mr. Lewet'sPAtio
of Common Life, a work in whioh the facta of
daily experience are presented in a very attract
ive style:
Hunger is one of the benificent and terrible
instinots. It is, indeed, the very fire of life,
underlying all impulses to labor, and moving
man to noble activities by its imperious
demands. Look where we mav. we see it as
the motive power which sets the vast array of
numan macninery in aotton. '
It is hunger whioh brings these stalwart
navies together in .orderly gangs to out paths
through mountains, to throw bridges across
rivers, to interseot the land with great iron
ways whioh bring city into communication with
city. Hanger is the invisble observer of tbe
men who are erecting palaces, prison houses,
barraoks and villas. Hunger sits at the loom,
which, with stealthy power, is weaving tbe
wondrous fabrlos of cotton and silk. Hunger
labors at the furnace and the plow, coercing
the native indolenoe of man into strenuous
and Inoeaaant activity.
Let the food be abundantand easy of access,
and civilization becomes impossible bo in
dissolutely dependant are our highera efforts
on our lower impulses. Nothing bat the ne
cessities of food will foroe man to that labor
which he hates, and will always avoid when
he can. And although this seems obvious
only when applied to the laboring classes, it is
equally though less obviously true when ap
plied to all other classes, for the money we all
labor to gain is nothing but food, and the
Burplus of food, whioh will buy other men's
labor.
Hungor, although beneficient,is no less ter
rible. When its progress is unohecked, it
beoomes a devouring flame, destroying all
that is noble in man. Hunger is a stimulus
to crime, no less than to honest labor. It
wanders through dark alleys, whispering
desperate thoughts into eager ears : and it
maddens the'shipwreckert crew till they cast
away all shame, all pity, all desire of respeot,
and perpetrate doeds which cannot be men
tioned without horror. Hunger subjugates
the humanity in man, and makes the brute
predominate. Impelled by thii ferocious in
stinct, men have eaten thoir companions, and
women have eaten their own children. Han
ger has thus a twofold character; beside the
picture of the activities it inspires, we must
also contemplate the picture of the ferocities
it evokes.
The All-bsrino Eye Thi Aoony or Cain.
Here is an extract from the Legend "La Con
science," by Victor Hugo :
"When, along with hia children, clothed In
the skins of wild beasts, distraught, wan, in
the midst of tempests, Cain fled from before
Jehovah, aa night was falling, the gloomy
man came to the foot of a mountain in a great
plain ; his weary wife and his panting chil
dren said to bim: 'Let us lie down on' the
ground and sleep.' Cain, not sleeping, sat
thinking at tho loot of the mountain. Rais
ing his head, he saw in the doptha of the fu
neral heavons an eye, wide open in the dark
ness, gazing fixedly on him through the night.
'1 am too near,' ho said, trembling. He
awakened his sleeping children, his weary
wife, and renewed his woful" journey, going
thirty day and thirty nights, Bllent, pale,
furtive, startled at every sound, not looking
behind him, without truoe, without rest, till he
reached the shore of tho sea.
" 'Let us rest here,' he said, 'for it ia a sure
asylum; we have reached the bounds of tho
world.' As he sits down, ho soes the oye in
the same plaoe In tho lurid horizon. And
blaok horror seises bim, and he Cries: 'Hide
me;' and Jubel, father of those who livettndor
tents in tbe desert, drew a tent about him; and
when ho sat encompassed by its thick folds,
little Tsilla, his son's child, fair as the morn
ing, asks: 'Yon no longer see anything?' and
Cain answers: 'I still seo the eye.' And Jnbal
built about him a wall of brass, but that eye
still gazed noon him. Then Tubal Cain anil
his brothers built a great city, with walls as
thick as mountains, and wrote upon the gate,
'God shall not enter,' and they placed Cain in
a great tower of stone within, and there the
eye looked steadfastly on the dreary, haggard
man. Then be said, 'Let me dwell under the
ground;' and Cain said, 'It is good.' Then he
went down into it, and when he was seated
there in tbe dark, and they had closed it up
with a great stone, 'the eye was in the tomb
and looked on Cain.' "
Wendell Phillips on the Negro Race and
John Brown. Wendell Phillips delivered a
leoture in Philadelphia on Monday evening,
and is thus reported:
He would endeavor to prove that this negro
race, Instead of being au objeot of contempt
and pity, is entitled, by its achievements, to
stand side by side with the Saxon in the cata
logue of nations. The speaker then aketobed
tho difference between the Saxons and the
African racos. There were two instanoes of
8 axon disinterestedness one when the phi-,
lanthropists of Britain emancipated anation in
the West India isles, upon whose face they
had never looked; the second was when that
old man of Connecticut went down to the bor
ders of Virginia and flung himself into the
bresoh of slavery, sacrificing his life for a prin
ciple that the ohurch had always despised, and
the Government trampled under foot.
Ho would solect Pbocion as the model of
Grecian glory; Cato as the noblest of Romana;
Lafayetto as the exemplar of Frenoh freedom;
Hampden aa the type of English liberty ;
Washington aa the representative of the primi
tive days of American splendor, and John
Brown, of Connecticut, as God's best and dear
est gift to this later generation. Then dip
ping bis pen in the elear sunlight of truth, he
would write above them all, in tho clear ceru
lean blue, tbe name of tbe hero of his race and
the martyr of freedom, Tounaint I'Ouverlurel
The Opinion or a Southern Man on the
Frekdom or the South. Tbe Rev. OhnrUs H
A. Bulkley, pastor of the Congregational
Church in Patterson, is a Southern man by
birth. In bis sermon on Thanksgiving Day
he took occasion lo contrast tbe effects of free
dom In the North with those of slavery in the
South, terminating with an allusion to Old John
Brown. In speaking of what had fallen un
der his own observation at the South, be said
that so despotic was the Institution of slavery,
lie oould not g to the spot where bis venerable
father's bones reposed, in South Carolina, and
over his grave offer op a prayer that the mis
sion of Christ might be accomplished, without
being treated to a ooat of tar and feathers, if
not stretched his full longth with no platform
beneath him I While praying to God that the
system might be brought to a peaceful termi
nation, tbe speaker declared his oonviotion
that tbe froe Northern men should "keep their
powdor dry" as well as "put their trutit in
God," and that, for his part, be was "ready to
do bis whole duty in destioying tbe aooursed
system, when the day of trial should oome.
