year ago I had a lovely kitten presented U
me. Her fur wis of a beautiful bine gray
color, marked with glossy black atrip) ac
cording, to ,tha most approved libra,, or tiger
fashion. She was so very pretty that she Was
named Pret, and was, without exception, the
wisest, most levins;, and dtinty pussy that ever
creased my path. When Pret was very young,
I fell ill with a nervous fever. She missed
me immediately In my acenatomed placet,
sought for me, and placed herself at my door
until she fonnd a ohance of getting into the
room, whlob she soon aooomplished, and began 1
at once to try hsr littl best to amuse me with
her little frisky kitten tricks and pussy-oat
attractions. But aoon finding that I was top
ill to play with her, she placed heraelf beside
me, and at once established herself as head
nurse. Iji,thiB capacity . few human , being
ooald have exceeded her in' watohfnlieis, or
manlfeitecTttiori affectionate regard." " I
It waa truly wonderful to note how soon she
learned to know the different hours at whioh I
ought to take medioloe or nourishment; and
during the night, if my attendant were asleep,
she would oallher, and If she eonld not awake
her without such extreme measures, she would
gently nibble the nose of the aleeper, which
means never failed to produce the desired
effect. Having thus achieved her purpose,
Mias Pret would watch attentively the pre
paration of whatever was needed, and then
oome, and with a gentle purr-purr announce
Its .advent to tne. The most marvelous part
of the matter was, her never being five miA
ntes wrong in hr calculations of the true timh,
even amid the stillness and darkness of night.
But who shall say by what means this little
being wag . enabled to measure the fleeting
moments, and by the aid of what power did
ahe connect the lapse of time with the needful
attentions of a nurse and her charge? Surely
we have here something more than reason .-j-&mtitijftf$

excitement for a time in the Aoademy in Philj

pioked up the bouquet. Thereupon there wap
a general hiss for Brignoli. When he apL
pwed.in.h .third act, hisses greeted him
from ill pertalhe bxlae, And fqr some time
the opera oould not go on. Hia friends rallied,
and aoon drowned the hissing with applause).
We knew no One who deeervea hissing more

AnraiCA--Mr. Smith O'Brien auted in hit
seoond leatnre on America that, although from
tbe rapidity of hit Journey be was not pre
pared to say how far the various allegation
against the ballot were wall founded, he was
sore that neither corruption nor intimidation
prevailed at all to the same) extent in America
as ia the United Kingdom; and he would add
that, though ha did not like sec rat voting, he
was compelled to say that If the ballot was
not aoon adopted in Ireland they would be re
turning to that state of things which existed
during the time of the 40a. freeholders, wheu
theiepresentatlon of the largest oountlea in
Ireland was regulated by the landed proprie
tors while sipping their alaret. He aald the
Interests of the working clasaes were more
studied and eared for in America than In this
country. It was impossible for any one not
to observe that, In Dublin, the streets inhabi
ted by the poor did not receive the same
amount of care as those Inhabited by the
wealthier nltlaena, while the oontrary waa
the casein New York. Aa to the aoaial qual
ities of the Ameriotpa, h aaid, in intercourse
with women their address was moat respeotful,
and in their Intercourse with each other they
were free and independent, bnt not obtrusive.
No man in America, no matter how large hi
-means, liked to be called a "loafer," that
was, an idler, while in this oountn tbe soa
efa poor country gentleman - would rather
Starve than engags in trade or commerce; and

A Run away Railway Tbaim. A day or
two ainoe, while the western freight train on
the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad waa as
cending the Alleghany Mountains, the hindf
moat car became detached, and being heavily
laden it ran back for the diatanoe of about
thirteen milea with a velocity which threw
completely in the ahade all the efforts of
ateam. By tbe daring exploit of a negro, who
jumped on to the ar and put down the brakes,
it waa brought to a halt in ita headlong course,
thua preventing a oollision with a passenger
train, that must have proved very disaatroa.

that aa Mr. weorge William Curtis had been
engaged to ; deliver a leoture before the Lite

Infidelity," in whioh he uttered the most rank
infldellc sentiments, he thought such a lecture
ought not to be delivered without a protest
from the Church. If- Mr. Curtis would not
change hia subject, or if the Aasoctation
would not throw Mr. Curtis overboard, then
the Society itself ahould be thrown overboard.

The President's Message.
Waiuxotox, December ST. The President,
after expressing gratitude to Almighty God for
tbe blessing throughout th year, refer to
th recent bloody oMurriDce at Harper's Firry.
These event, bad and cruel la themulvM,
derive their cheif importance from apprehen
sion; they are but the symptoms of an laoura
ble disease In th public mind, whioh -may
break out in still more dangerous outrage and
terminate at last in open war by the North to
Abolish slavery. While be himself haa ao such
apprehension, they ought to afford a aolemn
warning to ua all to beware of the approach of
He ay: "Let me implore my oonntrymen,
North and South, to cultivate the ancient feel
ings of mutual forbearance and good will
toward each other. Strive to allay the demon
-plrlt of sectional hatred and strife now ally
in tne land." .
He indulge in no gloomy foreboding, and,
thinks that the Harper' Ferry affair will b
tbe means ot allaying tbe exiiitieg excitement.
and preventing farther outbreaks. .
He cordially congratulates Congress on th
final settlement by the Supreme Court of thi
question ot slavery in tne Territories. Th
right ha been established for every eltiien t
take hia property el any kind, including ilaves
into tne Territories, and nave it protected then
UDdertne constitution. , .
Congress, Territorial Legislature nor an;
numan power can annul or impair this right
Thus baa the statutes of a Territory durin
the intermediate period from ita first settle
ment Until It haa become a State, been irre.
voeably fixed by th final deoision of, the 8u
p, -erne Court.
He then describes the mode of sdmissioi
of a Territory as a State Into the Union. It
may be admitted with or without alavery, as
ita Constitution may prescribe. I
.- Thia principle haa been recognised by alf
most the unanimous vote of both House of
the last Congress. -
All lawful meana at hia command has be
and will continue to be employed againat th
slave trade. Our history proves that thjs
father of the Republio, in advanoe of au
other nation, condemned the slave trade.
The Chinese treaty ratification have beiji
exchanged. Two supplemental Convention
are pending, relative to the rights of American
in China andtraniit duties. I
The Paraguay difficulties have keen satis

perhaps excepted, continue most friendly..

emerged from hisTell, accompanied by the
officers and his- spiritual advisers, who were
joined by. the jurors and apeotatora, and tbe
procession moved down the yard to the icar
fold..' HuMnger ascended the ttept with con
siderable firmness, and was followed by Rev.

ing hand with several gentlemen, he main
tained an unwonted degree of firmness, and
distinctly uttered the words "good-by'' to
each.' At nine minutes after eleven o'clock.
Sheriff Eyster, having adjusted the rope and
pulled the sap over the prisoner's fitoe, shook
hands with him and descended from, the' plat
form, when the apri og of the trap wa touehed,
the drop fell, and the soul of Henry Hulsin

even, did not disoolor it, nor turn up a tingle

whioh the ship' path had been marked for
