According to this paper, the train
which left era Cruz for Orizaba under

tacked by a band of guerrillas, 400 in
:umber, Col. Biscoe's command scarcely
exceeding eighty.- An express was sent

AMERICAN 4ND -ENGLISH WOMEN.
The A merican girl at eighteen is one of
the most beautiful of living beings, but at
thirty she is passe. At forty the English
woman is in her prime. Whence comes
the diffrence-from their respective bab
its of living. The A merican woman lives
in hot jhouses aupd takes very little exer
cise abroad, and when she doce, she is ill
protected agairst the weather. T4he En.
glisly woman rides, wvalkS, praptioes arch
ory and other exercises in the open air,
and is always properly clad to meet, the
exigencies of the 'welther. Hence her
beauty is a perennial bloom. One is a
hot house plant that withers qn exposure,
the other a hardy tree that flourishes in
every phase of weather.

conduct. and their firm conviction that his
elevation to the bench would reallie the
truest hopes of his friends and those who
desired it. Ije alluded to the considera.
tion that the poweor.of the State finally
resides in the judiciary department as the
expositors of the laws, and in. whose con
