,'Tbi Yocno Bostoh Wok am. Some one,
who seems to speak by the eard, isyi of the
fashionable young woman of Boston:
Sbecondenses herself into a life-sized admi
ration point before worki of art, and goes into
silks, satin, eostaciei, kid and cologne when
the opera arrives. She has a decided pen
ohant for lectures, glories in the epigrams of
wmppie, me oaaities or mecner, ana tne
swelling periods of Cbepln. She thinks the
Muieum intensely fine, tbe State-house great,
the Boston theater the grandest on the con
tinent. She locks with honor on those of her
sex guilty of the slightest peccadillos, but
doesn't see the harm in having an arm around
her own waist at twilight, on the softest of
tofts, and is never offended at the most im
pressed ot klBiei not she, - She thinks "oar
minister" the greatest of preachers and the
best of men. Beston "sooiety" she knows is
tne onoicest, most cultivated, genteeleat of any
in ;the country. She, taking her own esti
mate, is intellectual or nothing. She is class
ical. She is Roman. She can talk like an
angel and entertain like a book. She
has full grown opinions on every subjeot,
known and unknown, possible and im
possible. The Boston girl or woman has
little or no heart, and consequently little
or no affection. She ii much show and
little substanoe. Her hand is warm and
to is her bosom, but not her heart, since
she has none, that is , such as women elsewhere
possess. She likes blue stockings not of
woolen or worsted, but of the intellect. She
believes in old maids, because destined to be
such. In short, she is a singularity, an ano
maly, a mi yentrit, a almost every thing
which the sex elsewhere is not.
Convknisnt Mode or Avoiding Ohi'sCbrd
itors. One of tbe "curiosities of debt" has
recently come to light in the English bank
ruptcy Courts. Tbe Scotch law, it appears,
affords as many facilities for fraudulent debt
ors as it once afforded to olandestine marriages,
so that by a few title-simple proceedings any
body who has been a resident in that ancient
Kingdom for forty days can wipe off all old
soores and begin the world anew. The place
which has been to gentlemen in difficulties
what Oretna Oreen used to be to ardent lovers,
is, it appears, the Western Isles off the coast.
English debtors run np to those latitudes,
take up their abode in the Isle of Mull or the
file of Skye, and remain there in seclusion for
forty (In j 8. That time-honored period having
elapsed, they notify their creditors in London
or Liverpool that "Brown, or Smith, of tbe
Isle of Mull," Is about to absolve himself of
nis liabilities before tbe proper Court on a
certain day.
. The creditor is quite satisfied that no "Brown
or Smith, of the Iise of Mull," owes him any
thing, probably never heard of such a person,
and takes no further notice of it ; and is as
tounded to find in a wek or two, that "Brown
of Mull," is the identical Brown of the Strand
Holborn, who was largely indebted to him for
goods sold and delivered, and his release under
the Act, he would certainly have vigorously
opposed. It is then, however, too late, and
he finds to his astonishment that when Brown,
after forty days, designates himself as of Mull
or Skye, he designates himself with pcrfeot
legal accuracy.
There bas lately, however, been an expose of
tne i praotice in tne case ot tne defaulting
banker, Stephens, which bids fair to consign
tnese pleasant retreats to tbe same nseless oh
scurity as old Gretna itself. .. .. . ;

Two Mux Kit, LSD BV AH Ei plosion. Two
mon were killed by the premature explosion
of a blast in the Bergan tunnel, near New
York, recently. The viotims ef the acoident
wore workmen, named Martin Rellly and Jas.
O'Donohue. The men were preparing a blast,
when Reilly, in his. anxiety to oomplete the
work, imprudently took a stool needle instead
of one of copper, such as is generally used,
with which to ram the charge. The steel
struck fire from the rook, and a premature
explosion was the result of the imprudence.
A Woman Robrid op $2,700. A woman,
Mrs, Winters, went to a bank in New York a
day or two ago, and drew tbe sum of $2,700
for the purpose of paying off a mortgage, and
on her return home placed the money in
bureau-drawer in the home. About nine
o'clock in the evening she had occasion to go
out for a short time, and on her return found
that the house bad been entered during her
absence and the money stolen. No slue to the
thief has been obtained.
A Bishop's Jest. A New Jersey man told
Bishop Odenheimer the other day, while con
versing about the ballotings that took place in
convention before the final choice was made,
that it was well for him he was eleoted when
he was, as, if he had not been on that ballot,
on the next day they would have elected the
Rev. Dr. Newton, of Bt. Paul's. , Now you
know Dr. Odenheimer was Rector of St. Pe
ter's. The Bishop immediately replied, "That
wonld have been robbing Peter to pay Paul."
Sohithino Novel in Lottieiks. The last
advices from Hayti state that lotteries have
been established with the permission of the
government. The drawing of "The Grand
Lottery of Divine Providence" took place on
the 3d of November at Jacmel, the aggregate
Value of the twenty prises amounting to $2,000.
An Insurance company, with a capital of
$3,000,000, had also been established under
the same irreverent title of "The Divine Prov
idence Insurance Company."

TlHRlBLB SnTgRINQ ExTRAORDlHABY CASK
or Rhruwatihi. A correspondent of tlio
Olean (N. Y.) American,; relates the following
in a late letter; I oalled to see and speak with
Henry Passer, who is and has been afflicted
with rheumatism as probably no other person
bas been sinoe tho world begun. He has
been confined to bis bed since tbe spring of
1834, has not helped himself from it since the
fall of the same year, now more than a quar
ter of a century. Most of tbis time he has
been as helpless as an infant, not being able
to urn himself in bed, or help himself to a
tuoKal of food. His knees have been out of
joint for many years, the chords and muscles
having contracted so as to draw thelowor
bone of the leg back under the femur or upper
bone, front one to three inches. His foot have
been drawn so as to bring his toes against tbe
shin bone or tibia, with such force ns to cause
painful aad offensive sores. His hands aro
drawn oat if their natural shape, and rendered,
with the entire arm, useless and almost mo
tionless. The nerves of his eyes have been to
affected as to destroy his eight. He has been
totally blind for nearly ten years.
His hoaringand speech are jet preserved;
and his appetite has been quite good most of
the time. Sis memory is surprisingly
good, and his power to reoognize those whoso
voice ho has heard is wonderful. His left leg
was amputated about a year and a half ago,
since which time I have not seen him until the
seventh iist., yet he reoogniied me at once
upon hearing mo apeak. HiB sufferings are
intense, especially when he is moved. At the
present time his remaining foot Is much swol
len, and mortification has already commenced,
and amputation is contemplated.
Thi Womrn or Utah. A writer in the
Valley Tan, the Gentile paper printed at Salt
Lake City, says:
"Tlere are thousands of women in Utah
Territory between the ages of fourteen and
twenty, who world gladly walk barefooted all
around the world to find some place to hide
from these hoary headed bishops, olders and
priests.
Birial Place or Ralkiuh. Sir Walter
ltaleigh was executed October 20, 1618, in
Old Palace Yard, Westminster. On tho same
day hia body was borne to St. Margaret's
Chureh, and there privately buried. Such
was the fata of a viotim of the imbecile
tyranny of King James I condemned for
