Morumeet to Webster. Th New Eng
land. Society had a meeting at the Astor
House, New Yorkin Thursday, to talk over
Tailing money to build a monument to Web
ster. Some of the gentlemen (among them
.Mr. Fresseudcn) bitterly opposed the move
ment, on the ground of Webster advocacy
of the compromise measure. However, a
ComtnJttrt w appointed to take ' trp ub
Cchiositim or Tbade. Among the im.
portotlon into this country ,1s a certain class
of articles, embracing an almost endless vs
riety, which are called "non-enumerated.
Some of (heat cost mere, trifle and are lit
tie psed; others equally cheap, aro of such
general nse that their aggregate value - is
considerable, Few persons know that these
artioles enter into commercial transactions.
A friend somewhat curious in such matter
give th following item relative to those
importations into New York: V
Dming the year ending June 30th, 1853,
th value of slate pencils imported was $3,
733; of sausage skins, $934; little , night ta

Riot is Ciiicinsati. We copy the fol
lowing from the Sun of Monday last:
It was understood for a few davs oast, bv
the new Captain of police, who shows con
siderable activity and teal, that there was a
move on foot among those (chiefly Ger
mans,) who were bitterly opposed, for polit
ical reasons, to Mons. Bendinl, the Pope'
nuncio, at present on a visit to Archbishop
Purcell, to show towards him their public
disapprobation. As Captain Luken antici
pated, the thing happeoed. Last night, be
tween eleven and twelve o'clock, a large
crowd, numbering between six and eight
hundred, marched in processions, beating
drums &c,,and carry ny an illuminated sign,
having on it in large letters, "Down with
Behdihi!" and drew up. on the west ground
fronting the Cathedre),' when they made
preparations to burn the Nuncio in effigy.
Capt Luken hearing the ahouts of the
crowd, and knowing the purport.ordered the
police to disperse them. Proceeding to ex
ecute Captain Luken's command, the ' offi
cers were violently opposed and fired upon
by the excited crowd. One officer named
Carroll was shot in the leg, and two or
three others more or less injured. A num
ber of the rioters was arrested (about fifty,)
their names we could Hot learn, but we
onderstand they are principally Germans,
and belong to the Freemen and Turner's
vv nil so to br forgives. i nere is a
good story told of a young lay, who not
more than a thousand year ago was smit
ten with the eloping epidemio that was
then raging in ber native city, but who in
her haste neglected to take all her clothing
with her; Indeed aha 'took little more than
what she stood in. As soon as the knot
had been fairly and irrecoverably tied, she
wrote a letter to her guardian, infornvng
him of the fact, and imploring him to send
her, by the night express, "his forgivness
and her trunk especially the latter.
ftSr The French papers speak of the new
Parisian dish, fried rattlesnakes, as a nov
elty of their own Invention.. It is not. In
the old Florida war, "our men" discovered
that rattlesnakes were good to est, snd used
to Cook them ss ' a pleasant change after
! salt-horse and hard-biscuit. We have been
assured by one who served ih that war,
that the fleh of the rattlesnake Is delicious
1 sm nungry." And "by the by," when the
whit lids of the sufferer were closed in
sleep, I saw her bend orerbim with a bless
ingfn her hesrt. And sow laid the remnants
of the feast carefully by, and. eat her bread
an moistened. ...
I started from my reverie the grocer's
hard eye was upon mo. V

Ohl I wanted to tell . bim how poverty
and persecution contempt and scorn, could
not dim the heart's Ine gold, purified
by many a trial; and that woman with her
little wants and holy sacrifice, waa better
in the sight of God than many a trumpet
tongued Dives, who gave that lis might be
known of men. Olive Branch.
A Female Bigamist. Gertrude Kohter
has been committed . to the Albsny jail for
indulging in the luxury of three 'live lords.'
To the first she was married fir years ago,
to the second two ytars ago, and to the
third quite recently. They all met a few
days since at Albany, where they agreed to
decidetheir respeciv claims to the fair deme,
by a three handed gamo of 'seven up.' The
first husband won, but Gertrude refused to
abide the hazsard of the cards, and clung to
her latest acquisiton, whereupon recourse
was had to the law, and she was taken be
fore the Police Court for, bigamy. When
asked what induced her to prefer the last
husband to the other two, she said they were
'niche goot' and that the last was 'wort a
bout six hundred of such dirts rascals. I
try dem all,' said she, and 'tskest the best
est; and if be nr goot, I tries blenty more,
till I finds a Dutchman suits just right.'

without any of the element of a lion of the

er protested against it, until pressed to leave
by the American Legation in Turkey, as
yon will see, for there as here while under

anist in the world, has withdrawn himself
from public life for a year or two past.
"Spiridion," the entertaining Paris corres
pondent of the Boston Atlas, says his retire
ment was caused by dissatisfaction with the
piano it would no longer accomplish bis
desires. lie has sccordingly devoted all
energies to the production of a new instru
ment, and tho best piano-makers of Ger
many and Russia were employed in the
task. The work is said to be accomplished,
and "Spiridion," writes; " 1

An anecdote will illustrate my answer.-
Once upon a time an old lady sent her
grandson out to set a turkey. On his re
turn, the following dialogue took placet
. 'Sammy, hav you, set ber!'
'Fixed the nest all np nicely'

I bor their Iannis in silence, bat I now
know why it was so. It was not because I
feered them; but "still water run deep,"
and the dsrk currents of my heart wer not
yet sufficiently stirrsd. One day the crisis
came. A gentleman wbos nam 1 have
forgotton, wa conversing with my guar
dian, and I was plsying with sn old sword
I had found, in on corner of th room.
From th lips of th stranger, fell that mag
ical word, sad h pronounced it with such s
full, clear emphasis, though in alow, deep
voice, that my heart throbbed, wholly igno
rant as I wss of its mesniog.
"Power!" I repeated to myself, aa I bran
dished the ruaty sabre. "1 wonder what it
is! Will I ever know J" A loud insult
ing laugh Stopped me, and turning, I saw
Georgine Hammond, the oldest daughter of
my guardian, and my pet abhorrence.
"Power," aid he, with s praly liep, (for
she was a "young lady'' just from boarding
school,) "is What you will oever hate, brown
eipa. . la mr case, it is different ; but you
ar awkward and uninteresting, and what is
worso than all, a." She leaned over
me, and whispered the cruel, insulting word
io my ear.
Young as I was, I hnew too well that it
signified shame and disgrace, and my blood 1
b illed like molten lava. I was besido my-j
self with fury I turned while in the face
and gasped lor breath and then, as I heard j
the mucking laugh of my lormenter, I sprang
forward, and with one powerful blow laid
her senseless at my feet. My guardian and
bis guest sprang lawsrds us, and raised her
up ; and I did I bang my head and feel sn
alarmed penitence for my fault 1 No. far
from it ! I danced a war-dnncc around the
room ; with that heavy sabre again in my
grasp. I leaped I gambolled I could liaVe
cried for joy !
Yet it was not so much that my enemy
would dare to iasull me no more, though the
knowledge of this was plessant to me, but
that I bsd learned the definition of that won
derful ward Power ! Now, indued, I need
not ask ; by the action of a moment I had
broken my accursed thraldom, snd fsll how
Strang a thing it might b. I whom they
had all dispised whom the, a moment before
had ridiculed possessed tb divine thing
andevsraerf I was intoxicated with do-
light. ' But I suppose they thought I wss mad
through. fsar of lbs consequences of what I
had done, for wben the proud ttaorgine was
duly csred for, my guardian addressed no
word of reproach to m, but put Ins arm
around my waist, snd with kind snd sooth
ing words, drew me up stair to the lulls
room I wss allowed to call mine. I went
without resistance, not that 1 feared punish
ment, for in my new mood, I braved, snd al
most desired it, but I wanted to be alone,
that I might analyze my strsnge thoughts
aad feelings. H left me then, sad return
ed to the drawing-room sod ss I hesrd his
footsteps fsinter snd fainter, I danced again.
There wer two pictures en th wall,
which I cosxed Ermine, th sister next to
Georgine, to give me, and when she did so,
with what a proud bsarl I hung them ihsro,
taking car that a full light should full upon
th aoble brow of Napoleon, snd thst the
Angel should bsag in a little alcove where
tb soft shadows clustered around il like
troops of kindred spirits. -
"I have found it i I know now what power j
is !" hontd I, making paesea at the "Little
Corporal" with my rusty weapon, till his
stern features; seemed to relax into a amna
of grim satisfaction. Ptower! Power! it is
min, snd t can fesl it I" and l turneu io
look upon tb Angel io the alcove. - What
waa thar in those calm, holy eyes that
pierced to my very heart of hearts, so that I
dropped ths sabre, and the half-uttered words j
died on my lips I know not I cannot define
that mysterious look, but under its influence
I knelt in swe strcuk reverence, snd warm
tears feel quirk and fsst upon th floor. . A
gain t felt the meaning of the word I had so
proudly ottered, but now I saw bow differ

mood, that wild craving still remained, that
of the fruit I hd plucked and eaten might
be my food and sustenance through life.
