Lovib. The Pari correspondent of the New
York Exprut gives an account of a case which
occurred near Tours, France, in whloh ayoung
lady of high position contracted a culpable
connection with her mother' ooachman. The
mother, to conceal her daughter's shame,
strangled the new-born babe, and endeavored
by fire to destroy the last vestiges of its ex
istence. The correspondent lays:
The name of the principal aotress is Mad.
Lemoine de Chenon, and Mademoiselle Ange
lina de Chinon is the appellation of the young
girl whose fall has thus brought everlasting
disgrace on herself and her whole family.
There does not seem to be much sympathy for
Angelina, though apart from her first misstep,
Bhe is really more deserving of pity than
blame.
Madame de Chinon has hitherto occupied a
high social position, and was in the enjoy
ment of a handsome fortune. Angelina, her
daughter, is not yet eighteen years sf age,
has been brought up elegantly and aristocrat
ically, is described as very beautiful, and fell a
victim to the seductive wile of a ooachman.
In France, where caste is so jealously guarded,
in all the relations of sooial life, the thing Is
inoredlble. It is for this reason that nobody
sympathises with Angelina, it being perfectly
well known that without the most marked ad
vances on her part, no employe, no pooryouth,
however respectable mnoh less a vulgar serv
antwould think of raising hii eyea to her.
And granting such a fellow as this ooachman
to have free aooens to his young mistress'
presenoe, what could have been tho charm of
his conversation to a lady of her brooding and
education?

Longfellow, the poet, at a recent meeting In
Boston, to honor the memory of Irving, made
these remarks:
Every reader has his firrt book. I mean to
say one book among all others, whloh In early
youth fasolnates his imagination, and at once
exoltes and satisfies the desires of his mind.
To me this first book was the Sketch Book of
Washington Irving. I was a school-boy when
it was published, and read each succeeding
number with ever-increasing wonder and
delight; spell-bound by its pleasant humor,
its melanoholy tenderness, its atmosphere of
reverie, nay, even by its gray-brown covers,
the shaded letters of the titles, and the fair,
dear type, whloh seemed an outward symbol
of the style.
How many delightful books the same author
has given us, written before and sinoe; vol
umes of history and fiction, most of which
illustrate his native land, and some of which
illuminate it, and make the Hudson, I will not
say as classio, but as romantio as the Rhine 1
Yet still the charm of the Sketch Book remains
unbroken ; the old fascination still lingers
about it; and whenever I open its pages, I
open also that mysterious door which leads
back into the haunted chambers of youth I .
Many years afterward, I had the pleasure
of meeting Mr. Irving in Spain, and found
the author, whom I had loved, repeated in the
man.. The same playful humor, the same
touohes of sentiment, the same poetio atmos
phere, and what I admired still more, the
entire absence of all literary jealousy, of all
that mean avarioe of fame, whioh counts
what i given to another as so much taken
from one's self
"And rustling hears in every breeze,
The laurels of Miltiades."
Windill Phillips oh Jobs Brows Ohoi
Moss. Wendell Phillips leotnred last Sunday
in Boston, on "Puritan Principle," and among
other ultra things said: "What has John
Brown done for us ? The world doubted, over
the horrid word "insurrection," whether the
victim had a right to arrest the course of his
master, and even at any expense of blood, to
vindioate his rights; and Brown said to hi
neighbors in the old sohool-house at North
Elba, sitting among the snow where nothing
grows but men, wheat freezes "I oan go South
and show the world that he bas a right to rise,
and can rise." He went, girded about by his
household, carrying hi sons with him.
Proof of a life devoted to an idea I Not a
single spasmodic aot of greatness, coming out
with no baok-ground, but the flowering of
sixty years. 1
The proof of it, that every thing around him
grouped Itself harmoniously, like the olanets
around the central sun. He went down to
Virginia, took possession of a town, and held
it. He says "You thought this was strength;
I .demonstrate it is weakness. You thought
this was civil society; I show you it is a den
of pirates." Then he turned around in his
sublimity, with his Puritan devotional heart,
and saio! to the millions, "Learn!" And God
lifted a Million hearts to his gibbet, as the
Roman oroi'S lifted a million of hoarts to it, in
that divine sacrifice of two thousand years
saw. To-day, more than a statesman could
have taught itf seventy years, one act of a
week has taught these eighteen millions of
people. That is the Puritan principle."
Two Childbks Burst to Dsath is Niw
York. Mrs. Edgar Ackley, at Saugerties, N.
T., left a ohild alone in the room, a few days
since, and its clothes taking fire from the
grate, the little unfortunate was burnt to
death. A child of Robert Phelps, of North
east, in the same State, was so shockingly
burnt about the same time that it died the fol
lowing day. The mother, who had put her
babe to bed and left the room, discovered soon
after that the apartment was on , fire, caused
by the upsetting of a fluid lamp. - i

fall. The other night as a very respectable
gentleman of Franklin, lad., wsh returning
from churoh, he overtook a female, to whom
he paid but little attention, but on observing
him near her she began to run, and he followed
at a somewhat inoressed pace, merely for ouri
nsity, when she turned upon him and fired a
pistel at him, but without any serious effect.
The moral of this is, a man overtakes a
"strange" woman after night, and she runs,
he had better not follow within pistol range.

bta Hakdsoki Savios. The strange half
worship of Henri Jumpertz by th women of
Chicago, ean only be explained by the suppo
sition that he owes the deep interest he has
inspired to the fact of murderiug one of their
own sex, to whom he was bound by every tie
of honor and affeotion, in th most horrible
and brutal manner possible. The limn of
that city thus refers to the scene of his acquit
tal: As he entered the Court and beheld th
array of female faoes turned npon him, his
lips wore the lasoivious smile whloh the spec
tators have so frequently noticed. He glanoed
at the jurors, and then fixed his eyes upon the
clerk, to whom the verdict wiis handed by the
foreman. The room was hushed to perfest
sllenoe as the clerk read the verdiot which an
nounced his acquittal.
Then from the woman and the sympathi
sers, and friends of the prisoner generally,
rose up a burst of applause, which wag quickly
suppressed by the sheriff.
The prisoner leaped upon his feet and de
sired to make a speech to the Court and crowd.
He proceeded to say : "I thank the judge for
the attention he has paid the ease; but the
principle thing I have to say is, if there is
any thing in this oase I can dear up, I would
like to do it; If there is any doubt, I would
like to-olear it up."
The Court very properly Informed him that
it was not the place for him to make a speeoh.
He then, after shaking hands with his counsel,
the jurors and some others, a few of whom
congratulated him upon his narrow esoapa of
the halter, left the Court-room in company
with his counsel. The crowd followed him
ss they would have followed some curious
monster, the females manifesting the greatest
eagerness to get near him. To escape their
persistent attentions, he entered the jail, and
there took leave of his comrades in imprison
ment. ACobiocs Old Gsbiun Clock. The New
York Courier and Enquirer of late date says:
The artist Church, during his late expedition
to the North for the purpose of sketching ice
bergs, discovertd in the possession of a Dutoh
familv in Nova Sootia, an old German dock
whioh was made by Huygbens somewhere
about the year 1640. It has, sinoe his return,
been repaired and put in running order, by a
watchmaker in Hartford, and, though it has
not run for more than half a oentury, it is
now keeping good time, and may last another
two centuries. It has been handed down in
the same family, from father to son, for gen
erations. It is somewhat of a curiosity, from
the fact that it is one of the first docks mad
with a pendulum. The action of the pendu
lum on the wheel is not direct, by means of a
Eallet, as In our modern clocks, but operates
y a vertical vibrating bar with "Bnugs" on
it, catching into the teeth at each oscillation.

English Fcab or thb Invasion or Ibsland
bt thb Fbinch. Some of the Irish journals
are discussing the probability of a Frenoh in
vasion of Ireland. They think that in the
eventof Louis Napoleon doolaring war against
England, one of his first steps would be to land
a powerful force in Ireland and take possession
of the principal ports of the island. There
are few plaoes in Ireland fit to resist a strong
invading foroe; and a French expedition
would find many sympathisers there, Even
the English journals, in speculating upon a
rupture with France, express apprehensions
that the French Fmperor would, simulta
neously with an attack upon England, make
a diversion in Ireland, and avail himself of
the support of the dlsaifeoted portion of the
population. In view of this danger, the Brit
ish Government has directed its attention to
the fortification of the Irish coast; and orders

of detecting the thief, when on pulling the
drawer, entirely out. he found under the coun
ter a nest, oompoted entirely of bank-bills, in
whioh were four dead mice. The last one
stolen was on "The State B nk of Minnesota,"
badly gnawed. There was not enough vitality
in it to keep the mice alive, or there was a
polsonons ingredient in the bill that laid them
