ayii Mr. Gurney is the son of Joteph John
Gurney, th distinguished Quaker preacher
and philanthropist, will known by his exten

for the purpose of visiting the meetings of the
sooiety to whioh he belonged. The latter was
a brotier of the well known banker, Samuel
Gurney; his lister was the celebrated Elizabeth
Fry, and his widow is a native of Pennsyl

The lugitive wife was the only child of
Richard Gaerney, M. P., a oousin of Joseph
John, and was married to the husband she has
abandoned when she was only fifteen yean
old. She is now twenty-eight, and has two
children. Her father, at his death, loft a for
tune of $5,000,000 one-half to her children,
and the income of the other half to her dur
ing hor life the principal, at her death, to go
alio to her children. In addition to this
abundance, her husband is also very wealthy,
a Member of Parliament, and maintains a
spledidoity establishment and several ornntry
seats. As a man, a citizen, a husband and a
father, perhaps all England does not oontaln a
better or brighter character. He married for
love, and was passionately attached to his wife,
lavishing on her every attention and indulg
ence which an overflowing fortune and affec
tion could inggest aa likely to contribute to
her happiness, without, for a moment inspect
ing that her loyalty to him had been alienated,
until he heard the bluting intelligence from
her own lips.

Cvttiro thr Hub or a Status. The Naples
correspondent of the London Newi lays in a
late letters
The municipality went down to the Church
of the Madonna del Carmine in their carriages,
to cut the hair of a celebrated statue of Jesus
Christ, said and believed to now every year.
With the crowd I got in also. Their worships
were at man, and the body of the building
wu erowded with people. Undoubtedly the
general impression was that the hair of the
figure on the oroas grew and wu nnt yearly,
though one man told me that it was not done
now, and that it was only an idle report. O n
arriving in tbe church the first thing which
the municipal body did was to draw uide the
curtain which conceals the miraculous oruoifii
from public view, when upward of a thousand
laces were turned toward i witn an expres
sion of tbe most intense devotion. Mass bay

custom formerly, I saw no hair cut on th

Americas Piculiabitim Burlesqved or ths
Paribus Staob. Th Paris correspondent of
the New York Timet writes as follows:
New Year's day this year his been produc
tive in Americanisms. In the annual revie.vs
at the theaters we some in for more than our
ordinary share of criticism. Ia the review of
tbe Varieties, for example, we have Blondin
and his cord, Barnum, and the balloon "City
of New Yorok," (spelled with an extra o.)
Between each acin the stage manager oomei
forward, holding in hii hand a copy of the
quadruple ConttelUtion or the Courier dei Etals
Unit, bows politely and obsequiously to the
audienoe, and reads first from one paper and
then from the other, contradicting and affirm
ing the existence of Blondin, then contradlot
ing and affirming his feats on the rope, and
then ditto the story ef his death. This "saw"
continued through a greater part of the piece,
and intended to show th agonies of the public
of France a each steamer arrived from Amer
ica with the affirmation or contradiction of
Blondin and his feats, is decidedly the hit of
the piece.
But finally Barnum arrives and offer to the
gentleman who is io worried about Blondin
the whole list of his wares, from the woolly
horse and Joyce Heth down to Tom Thumb;
but he is asked only about Blondin; "Tell us
the truth about Blondin!" is the burden of the
song. "Certainly," says Barnum, "he is not
only a reality, but I will show him to you."
Whereupon the man under the trap jerks the
outside covering from Barnum and reveals
Blondin in flesh and blood. At the same Urns
a drop-scene' disappear and Teveals Niagara
with a cord stretched across the abyai. Blon
din mount his cord, and as he marches
steadily along olouds of canard appear! iu the
air behind him, before him, above and below
him, while the ballet girls, to give effective
ness to the soene, perhapi to suggest Its appli
cation, wave triumphantly numerous star
spangled banners of which, unfortunately,
some are made with the stripes running the
wrong way. That, however, is only a detail.
' Arotheb Opirior or Maoaulay's Corybb
iatios. The London correspondent of the
Manchester Guardian hu the following:
Maoaulay's conversation, more than that of
any man I have ever met, impressed me with
the notion of a memory of peirless aocuraoy,
the stores of whioh were uitd with an unfail
ing and disciplined energy of mind, mani
fested especially in the force and finish of the
speaker's langtage. All of Macaulay'i con
versation would admit of being put in print,
just as it was spoken. Thore wai nothing un
finished, slipshod, hesitatingly, or half-expressed.
The sentences wore flung bofore you
with aa irrepreasible buoyanoy and forceful
nets of utterance, complete, clear cut, well
rounded and well-linked to each other; and
yet there was nothing Johnsonian, nothing
pompous, sesquipedalian or pedantic In the
phraseology; and as th manner ao wu the
matter pleasant, interesting, amusing, but
never prosy, boring or over ambitious for the
company or the time, see Maoaulay
monologised, only because he had so much
ready to flow forth on most subjects, that it
took a long time even to pump off even his
surface water; bat, in company with people
who had something to say and oould any it,
Maoaulay did not habitually take up more
than bis fair share of the conversation. Sid
ney Smith used to complain of Maoaulay be
cause he wu a rival, and a worse monopo
list, and oould not bear to see the attention of
the table distracted from his own rampant and
Italrelalfian fun.
Thr Gallant Footmar that Bar Away
with Mrs. Gubbky. A correspondent gives
'the particulars of the footman whom Mrs.
Gurney loved not wisely but too well: A young
man whose name is Taylor, had been highly
recommended to Mr. Gurney as a groom or
footman, to take oharge of Mrs. Gurney's
horses, u ahe wu excessively fond of eques
trian exeroise, and was acootdingly employed
in that cipaoity. - Taylor wu an eduoated
man, of fine appearance and pleuing man
ners, and three or four years younger than bit
mistress. Tbui thrown often together, she
oonoeived a passion for her servant, of which
her husband did not entertain the remotest
idea until she openly avowed it to him, de
claring that, although the latter had been
faultless as a husband, and only too indulgent,
yet the had oeased to love him; that her heart
wu with Taylor, and that she had determined
to abandon the husband for him. The
tenderest remonstrance and intercession
availed nothing to lessen her infatuation.
Friends and relatives who were called in to
plead with her made no stronger impression;
