Ai Orioihal Rap rELU An original Saf
faelte of the Hodonna and Child, is now on
exhibition atWiswell's Gallery on Fourth
street, and is visited by many connoisseurs.
Of its genuineness there is said to be no doubt,
and its value is estimated at $40,000. The
pletnre has some fine features, but as a whole
causes disappointment; tbs virgin resembling,
facially, a Isger-beer-selliog damsel, over the
Rhine, muoh more than the beautifully tad
and exeeedingly spiritual being we imagine
the mother of Jesus to have been.

Polios Cooet. The session of the Police
Court yesterday morning was quite short, only
nineteen cases, and they of the most ordinary

business was far less important than usual,
and not a single circumstance was developed
that would be deemed worthy of relation,

Ahothbb Case op Dkstiti'iion. A woman,
named Ellen Kelly, went to Lieutenant
Brocklngton, yesterday afternoon, stating
that she resided in an alley between Fifth and
Sixth and Sycamore and Main, and that sho
was suffering foi want of the neoeasarles of
life, having pawned tnelaBt piece of olothinir
the day before'. Her condition was such that
before many days she will need the atten
tion of a physician and nurse, and she was
therefore, referred to the member of the Poor
Committee for that Ward, who, we presume,
ha tent her to the Hospital.
House Neablt Drowsed. A wagon laden
with hogs ran against a lamn-nost veiterdav

Tie Populabitt of Books Depeeoeut crow
Political Kxoitb waNL-We have been informed
that for a couple of years past a Main-street
publisher has had his ahalves encumbered b
about five hundred copies of Hinton Rowan
Helper's Impending Oru,t none of which he
ever expected to sell, and thought seriously of
souuiog mom oaos to tne puoiisner. wnen
the dlscustion in regard to the book, however.
came np In Congress, it suddenly became pop
ular, ana ne soia on bis entire stock in lets
than two days, and had calls for at least a
thousand more. It has been proved that
politioal dlsoussion may make books popular,
and it is quite likely that the debate in Con
gress was merely a publisher's trick to get
their work Into notoriety, thus relioviog their
shelves, and at the same time swelling their
bank account.
Double Infatuation A Fatheb and Sob
Elofino at tbe Sahb Timb. In yesterday's
issue we published an aooount of a runaway
marriage that took place at the Burnet House
night before last, but were- not at that time
apprised ef the fact that the father of the
young man who so precipitately rushed into
matrimony there, was at the same time being
married at the Spencer House, to a female
with whom he also had eloped.
It appears that both father and son, neither1
aware that the other was upon the same train,
arrived in this oity in company with females
whom they intended to make wives, and took
rooms at different hotels. Marriage certifi
cates and ministers were procured, and about
the tame hour both the infatuated Individual
became Inhabitants of that mysterious realm
whioh Montainge says possesses the peculiarity
of giving all who reside there a desire to emi
grate, while all who are without its boundaries
seem desirous of beooming residents within
them. i' M i
They may return now to their homes in onr
sister State and plead forgiveness from the
parents whose daughters to use the sarcasm
of the world they have made happy, and we
hope they may receive it; but if the music of
their epithalamia Is ever disturbed by do
mestio disoords, tbe memory of the circum
stances under whioh they were married, may,
with aid of philosophy, make a bstter har
mony than Love and Hymen ever were known
to produoe.

He read from the compendium cf Helper' book to
show that it advisee that the Infernal question ol
slavery must be dlneosed of aud absolutely abolished
as tbe true policy of tbe South. .. . - -
Iu view of this kind of sentiments did not John
Brown bellevo that Mr. Snorniun and 01 hers would
stand by him? Was it expected that bia constituents
and th Statu of Louisiana should cousuut that thk
Union be control led by the ptrty which adviies the
slave, to rise In the South aud commit murder?

whoadvl.ed this thing have not had tbe nerve In tbe

whether he would consider the mere election of air.
Seward aaeulBcient cauaoto secede from the Union,
and auawerrd, certainly not; h aonid wait for
an overt act; but that overt act had been committed
and Seward is acce sjry. Before tlie-fact of John
Browna raid, for whicrr.ooftrre Sb8 And high heaven,
tlie Republicans are rosp nailile, hie ardent love for
the Union prompted him to hope that the bitter cup

Mr. Ftherlrtge snltl he anrl his friends had refined
to entertain the proposition for going over to tbe
D. mocrala, uuless they could show that by goine
over an election can beefferted. It was demonstrated
that the Democrats cannot uuite their voteaon any

votea. A week ago, he eai.l. the Southern opposition
could put one of tlieir nuiuber (Mr. Gilmer) iu a posi

Mr. Cobb I irust the object of barmonv Is ac

Much anxiety waa manifested to vote, but Hr.
Clarke, of, N. Y., rose, ayi ig that he proposed to

Mr. Adrian If you can bring about an organiza

Mr. Clarke, resuming, said he had been called a
Lecompton man, aud sometime accused of merce
