,' Romahce in Real Life. Sirs. Gwin,
wife of Senator Gwin, California, it is stat
ed, lias just come Into pof session of not less
than 60,000 acres, and probably as much as
100,000 acres of land, iii Texas, advanUige
QOsly located, covered wilh settlers, and
worth from $2 to 830 per acre. The pro
perty formerly belonged to her first husband,
:Mr. Logan, a wealthy citizen of Texaa.who,
some years since, died suddenly, without a
will, but it has for several years been in
the hands of administrates. Rarently,
however, a case instituted by gome of Mr.
Logan's heirs against the administiator, in
the Supreme Court of Texas, was decided,
and Mrs. Gwin declared to be entitled to the
Whole estate. Mrs. Gwin.it is also said.knew
nothing of the decision until Dr Gwin, re
ceived a letter signed "Justice," calling his
; attention to it, and sebsequen'ly received
confirmation of the intelligence from Sena
tor Rusk. The New York Times, from
whichwo condense tho foregaing, says:
Upon inquiry, Dr. Gwin became satisfied
that the author of the anonymous letter
illing his attention to the right ol his wile
to this estate, was Richard P. Robinson, of
Helen Jewett memory, who, as is well
known to manv Dersotis. aettled in lexas
years ago, where he is a respectable and
wealthy farmer, enjoying the confidence and
respect of the community where he resides.
He insists upon it that, many years ago,
when he was on outcast from the world,
which pursued him with scoffings and de
nunciations, Dr. Gwin, then resid.ng in
Mississippi, took him, by the' hand, and by
his counsel and aid, taught h'un'to hope.
By a singular coincidence, the lady who is
now Mr. Robinson's wife, was also indebt
ed to Mrs. Gwin for kindness manifested
towards her, when in trouble, years ago.
Resistimo U. S. Officers. A number
of persons in McDonald county,' Mo., have
been for sever. I mou'hs engaged in culling
all the valuable timber on the public, ' lands
of the United States in that csunty. A few
days ago Major Bryant, U. S. Marshal, pro-
oeeded thither lo serve writs upon tho .of
fenders, but the latter, with their fr.cnds, to
ihe number of 150, collected together, and
forced the marshal and his deputies not on
jy to leave the county, but the 8tate also.
The Marshal was, at last accounts, at the
hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas, with seven
teen, of the law-resisting party around the
hotel, demanding of tho landlord that the

Trouble Ahead. A private letter from
a'highly respectablo source in Washington,
"remarks the Baltimore Sun, says: "There

in the United States Senate, on the 10th

Douglas in favor ef slavery extension, Hon.
Trumab Smith, of Connecticut, gave the
Illinois demagogue the following broadside.
It is pretty severe, but the sentiment it per
fectly right: ' ; -
''I hate a Northern anti-slavery dema-
(rogue, and I hate a Southern pro-slavery

but of all the mean reptiles which God, for

Free Negroes in Missouri. A case was
recently brought before one of the Superior
Courts of Missouri, in which it was sought to
j . expel a mulatto from the State under a sta
tute of 1847, which declares that no free
negro or mulatto shall come to that Slate
under any pretext whatever. It was con
tended in reply that this statute was uncon
stitutional, and that Missouri, was bound by
her solemn compact and agreement, by
which aha had pledged herself never to pass
any law prohibiting any citizen' of one of
the States of this Union from emigrating
' to Missouri, and enjoying all the privileges
of citizen! of tike class ia that State. The
' ceurt sustained the motion and dismissed the
proceedings, declaring that the Legislature
of that State had no right to disregard and
violate the solemn compact entered into by'
Missouri in order to be admitted as a State

The preference is natural enough. The

Deputation or Friends in St, Peters
burg. The English deputation of the
Friends' Peaco Society, which recently
went to St. Petersburg, to induce the Czar
to avoid a war, was admitted to an audionce
of the Enipeior, which lasted nearly half an
hour. . The Emperor received them most
graciously .and expressed himself much pleas
ed with the object ol their visit, and the mo
tives which induced them to make so long a
journey. The Emperor nllordod them every
opportunity to express their views, and stat
ed to them ut great length what he thought
of the present state 6f affairs.' He said they
should not leave without being introduced
to the Empress, and on the Empress enter
ing the room, tho Emporor expluined Ihe ob
ject of their journey. On tikiug their leave,
the Emperor shook them heartily by the
hand, and on quilting the pluco they were
much struck by the cordial reception given
to three plain, humble, simple men of peace.
Although it was the wish of'Hhe Friends"
to be as quiet as possible during their slay

learn from him precisely how the award
was originally divided that is, if ho knows
anything concerning what went with any
portion of the money, other than that which
he received from Gardiner's attorneys, for
the advances made them ere thft award was
made. It Is well known in .Washington,
continues the Star, that his connexion with

that the boy should take it, and so let it re- 1
This continued temptation, was too much
for the lad's resistance. The d me was tak

was purchased with it. lint, while return
ing home to gladden her heart, his own was
m ide heivy by being arrested for theft! a
crime, the nature ol which ho little knew.
These circumstances were sustained by
several of his employer's workmen, who
were also parties to the plot. An attorney
urged upon the jury the necessity of making
the little rogue an extmple to others, by
punishment. His address had great effect
upon all who heard it. Before I could see
many tears of sympathy for the lad, his
widowed mother and laithful sister. But
their eyes were all dry now, and none look
ed as if they cared for, or expected, aught
but conviction. 1 he accuser sat in a con
spicuous place, smiling like as if in fiend
like exultation over the misery
brought upon that poor, but once happy'
trio. We felt that there was but little hope
for the boy; and the youthful appearance of
the attorney who had volunteered in his de-
fenre. crave no nemirsirerrieni. r wf. enm.

his first address, lie appeured greatly
coiilused, und reached to n ilenk ne.ir him,
from which he took the Bible that had been
used to . solemnize the testimony. This
movement was received with general laugh
ter and taunting remarks among which we
heard a harsh fellow cloc by u cry oHt
He forgets where heis. Thinking to
take hold of some ponderous law book he

The remark made Ihe attorney flush with
anger, and turning his flashing eye upon the
audience, he convinced them it was no mis
take, saying, 'Justice wants no other book.'
His confusion was gone, and int-mtly he
was as calm as the sober JuJje o l the
The Bible was opened, and- every eye
was upon him as he quietly and leisurely
turned over ihe leaves. Amidst a breath
less silence he read lo the jury this sen
tence: 'LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION.'
We fell our hearts throb nt the sound of
those words. The an hence lo ked at each
