Correspondence ef the Sentinel. LETTERS TROM SWITZERLAND AND OEHMANY. TSi. 7. Cologne, October, 9th, 1856. ilr Dtxa N : I told jou In my lajt letter that we hid arrived at Mayence ; but our stay thera waa io short and so fully oocup'ed with light- 'ales that I ha no timo to describo ta you that ancient and beautiful city. It is the moit important town in the dominions of tha Grand Daka of Hesse Darmstadt, and oca of tha strongest fortifications of the Ger man Confederation. It is garrisoned by eight thousand Ruiiiaii and Austrian troops, and commanded by a governor, elected alternate ly from thesa nations for a term of fire year. To tha antiquarian, who has tima to seek among tha dust and ahadowa of the Fast for the footprint of the dead ages, it is one of tha most interei'Jug places in Germany, for it was a fortifisd Raman camp thirty-oight years befora Christ. Twenty-four years later, Drussus, the son-la-law of Augustus, laid the foundations of what is now Mayence, by the erection of the Castle, called Castellum Mojantiaaam ; which was the most Impreg nable and important of the Roman fortifica tions on the Rhine. The foundations of its strong towers and tha remains of the aque duct which aupplied it with water, and which waa once supported by Ere hundred pillars, are mute witnesses, to this day, of the geni us, the industry and the power of that won derful people who came from aunny Italy and planted their eagles amidst the Vandal hordes in the forest and fastnesses of this northern land. Oar first risit was paid to the Cathedral, an imposing pile, but more interesting on ac count ef its groat age and the.strange ricissi- tudes through which it has passed, than for its architectral beauty. Its construction was commenced in 978, by bishop Willigla. Six times it was more or less damaged by fire, and each time restored and enlarged in the style of tha epoch, so that at present it is an illustrated history of the architecture which prevailed in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. In 1793 it was bom barded and burnt by the Prussians, later it waa used as a hay magazine by tha French ; and, in, 1804, restored again to its proper uses. After the retreat of the French, at at Leipsic, six thousand soldiers were lodged in it, who buret the chairs, tables and erery- thing that was combustible, to warm them seWes. During the seige of 1811 it was con Terted into a slaughterhouse for the garrison, and afterwards into a storehouse for salt .nd grain. It was restored in 1820 to its present form, and no one who looks at its rich stones, elaborate carving and gorgeous gildteg would ever imagine the dangers through which its strong old walls have passed. It is 356 feet long. 110 feet high and iU vault is support ed on 56 columns. These columns and the walls are all ornamented with monuments of the Electors, Archbishops, and canons of Mayence, in stone, in marble and in bronze. Some are adorned with crowns, wreaths and heraldic quartering? ; others with beautiful female figures weeping bitterly, and little, fat angel holding scrolls bearing the name, titles and deeds of the dead. A few are well de signed and finely executed, but the greater number overlaid with meaningless ornaments and strained allegorical representations. We foand several groups of wretched look inz women in different parts of this old minster, on their knees, scrubbing the mar ble floors. They raised their hollow eye with a cold, hard look as we passed, and then betook themselves to their labcr again, crawl ing over the wet floor with their reaking , brushes and trailing their tatters behind them. I loeked at their wasted forms and hungry faces and wondered if the money expeaded on the tombs of these princes and prelates might not have been better invested in the endowment of some sort of institution for the benefit of the poor. What avails it that tt : men were rich and fared sumptuously fffj J j ; they have gone the way of all . ' iarih. What avails it that millions of S:r:v vent to purchase rich marbles to cov r the? senseless dust, and long epitaphs to cf-.m n6?torata their names and their virtues. The marbles are only regarded as church or- 3 i. . i na neDtB, ana me epitapns are never or rare ly ead: But the poor have lived, suffered and died in their ignorance, bequeathing their degraded condition to their children and to their children's children, and the conse quences, like a dark, -wave in the ocean of life, will roll on to the shores of eternity. For hours we wandered through the long aisles and over the storied pavements of the adjoining cloisters ; now looking at the bra sen baptismal font behind the eastern altar, which bears the date of 1323, then trying to decipher an ancient edict engraven on the bronze doors which confers certain privileges on the town as a recompense for the fidelity and ralor displayed by its citi zens m the rescue of the Archbishop, Adalbert First, from the captivity in which he was held by the Emperor, Henry Fifth ; it is dated 1135. In the galleries leading to the cloisters, we found the tomb of the last of the Minnesingers, Heinrich von Meissin, called Frauenlob "Praise the women." lie died in 1318, and his bier was borne by the fair hands of eight noble ladies, who poured libations of wine on his grave, while hundreds of others covered it with flowers and watered it with their tears. There are two monuments to his memory now. The one in gres-rouge, which bears his portrait in baa relief, and the date of 1783 was modeled after the original, which was broken some three centuries after his death; the other was erected by the ladies of Mayence in 1842. It was executed by Schwanthaler, in white marble, and represents inbas relief the coffin of the poet, ornamented with three crowns, one of oak, one of ivy, and one of laurel, with a woman weeping at the head. I think the inscription, which is in German, might have been a little longer and a little less pro saic 2s ot far from this there is a grey stone, in the wall, inscribed to the memory of Fras trada, third wife of Charlemagne, who died at Frankfort in tha year 793. She was buried in the Church of St. Alban, and when that was destroyed by Albert, of Brandenburg, three hundred years ago, mis stone was brought here. I looked at the quaint letters on the old grey stone, and my thoughts went back, through the long gone years, to the fair, young girl in her father's halls ; to the beau tiful bride wooed and won by the greates man of many ages; to the crowned Queen, glittering with diamonds, on one of the proudest thrones that the world ever saw ; to the sad hearts and tearful eyes that gathered round her death-bed ; to the jewel-woven pall and golden canopy that hung over the pale form when the cold hands were folded over the still heart, and the soft eyes were closed forever ; to the richly wrought coffin with its golden plate, bearing a sounding in scription ; to the silken shroud, the fair flow era, the shaded lamps, the sable plumes, the music, the banners, the steel-clad knights and the pageantry of a great Queen's burial : But the world in which she lived is de d. and the spot where thoy laid her is a waste, and this old, grey stone is all that remains to remind us of Fras trad a. From the Cathedral we went to the ancient palace, which contains the Picture Gallery, the Hall of Roman antiquities and the town library. Among the paintings that corer the walls of nine or ten rooms are the works of Titian, Manila, Carracci, Domeaichina, Ru bens, Ilolbein, Albert Durer, and a great num ber by the best modern painters. None of them are of remarkable merit, but many are very interesting, and afforded us all tho more pica sure, because we found them unexpectedly. I remember one little nameless thing, in a side room, that pleased me very much. It was the interior of a rustic home, seen by the strong, red light of a winter fire. The posi tions of the feeble, old grand-parents, the grouping of the hearty, hale father and mo ther and little children, and the sweet face of the young daughter, whose lover was just en tering the door, are all very true and vsry beautiful. Then there are four lovely land scapes, copied from Claude Lorrain, that seemed to me as fine as those shown us, in the Doria callerr. as originals. I mentioned this to the intendant, a person of much intel ligence, who told me that the originals are in St.; Petersburg. So much for the truth of those who pretend to know the history and homes of the works of the old masters. From the gallery we went to the library, which con tains 100,000 volumes, filled with the treas ures of knowledge woa from all lands, all ages, and expressed in all languages. What interested us most were some of tho first works of Guttenburg, Faust and Schocffer, tho first impressions of the first printing presses. Lit tie did they dream, who looked with pride and pleasure on these infant efforts of the glorious art, of the wonders it would work, or the perfection at which it would arrive. Those old letters, quaint and curious as they are, were the first faint, struggling rays of that sublime light which e over the hori zon of Time and shone into the hearts and homes of men, till the world is full of its glo- and when we thank God for the fruits of earth which nourish the body, we should not forget to thank him for the fruits of the print ing press which nourish the immortal mind. Mayence was the birth place and home of John Gensfleisch, called Guttenburg, the in ventor of moveable types, and it is ornament ed by a fine statue of him in bronze, which waa modeled by Thorwaldsen, and bears on one side, a Latin inscription, which might be translated thus : T Jkn Genijleiick, f Ontenburp, patrician tf Mayence,tke citiiem ef tki city, by mean ef tk tub teriptient ptd in all Europe, kave erected tkit men- (, in 1837. The inscription on the other side is too fine to be spoiled by any translation I could make of it, bo I send it in the original : Jtrttm fumt Gruff tmtuit latmitqut Latino t, Qtmani t oiler e eztudit ingtnium. JWtt yuidquid vetoree tapivnt tapiuuty ut recent It, Jf on tibi, ted popnlit omnibus id tapiunt. Our last hour at the palace was spent in the Ilall of Roman antiquities. Most of these were dug up during the last centnry in the neighborhood, and some of them are very interesting. Here are mutilated statues which once adornod the halls of some lordly patrician;- rude household altars, carved witn uncouth gods that some poor plebeian worshipped ; marble tablets, bearing the names of Roman Legiors, stationed on this spot two thousand years ago; broken columns inscribed with the names of re nowned generals, and the dates of glorious victories, and votive offerings commemorating great dangers and thanking the god for mi raculous escapes. In the midst of things like these, I always fall to dreaming dreaming of the scenes they have witnessed, of the stories they could tell, if they had tongues to speak ; stories of trusting love, of bitter partings, of broken hearts, of desolate homes, of lonely watchings,of agonizing prayers, of pomp and pride, of poverty and toil, of mourning and of revelry; for human life was then, as now, made up of smiles and tears, of sunshine and of shadows.' Man loved and labored, suffered and endured, rejoiced and mourned, from the cradle to tho grave, when the world was young, even a now, when it is growing old ; but the way was darker and the end more uncertain to the generations who worshipped the Unknown God, than to those who walk to-day in the broad .light of Christianity. A pleasant walk brought us to the Pub lic Gardens, called Neue Anlagen. They are beyond the fortifications, on the spot which was once occupied by the Pleasure Palace of the Electors, called M The Favorite ;' mem orable as the place where all the German princes assembled, after the coronation of the Emperor Francis First, to consider the mani fest of the Duke of Brunswick to the French. From the terrace there is a beautiful view of the jmnction of the Maine with the Rhine ; of the fine old town, with its pretty red and yellow houses, grey fortifications and lofty towers; of the pleasure boats, with their white sails dancing on the blue waters; of the Taunus Mountains, hiding themselves away in the dim distance, and of the fruitful valley of Reingan, which poured its wealth into the cellars of the Archbishops of Mayence, when they returned, in answer to the Pope's re proof of their luxurious habits, "We have more wine than is needed for the mass, and not eaough to turn our mills with." The Austrian and Prussian military bands play here alternately every fine evening, and as the soft, south wind whispers through the old trees, and the sweet music floats away over the broad river, and the throng of prom enadera pass with their happy faces and gay dresses, one almost forgets that there is sin or sorrow in a world which seems so beauti ful; but the last sunbeam said Good niht" to the fair Rhine, and wa followed ifa example. When we returned to our hotel we were very tired, but a good supper quite restored us, and we slept till we were awakened by the roll of the reveille at the garrison. While we made our toilet and ate our breakfast, sev eral thousand soldiers passed our windows on their way to the parade ground. Their uni forms were very pretty and their weapons gleamed and sparkled in the mornin" sun shine, and their feet kept time to the thrilling music of the bands ; but their faces had a dull, dogged expression, like that of men who were compelled to do what wax sorely against their will- an expression which seemed to say, " We have nothing, we pect nothing, and we love nothing;" all the soldiers we saw in Germany had that same look poor fellows, no doubt it was reflected from their hearts, for their profession is a sad waste of the little three-score years of man's allotted life. Training, training, training through boyhood, 'hrough manhood, always training; learning .V hold their heads up, their shoulders straight, their arms at a par ticular angle, their feet in the prescribed po sitions ; but, above all, to have no individual existence, no home but the garrison, no will but that of their superiors. I never see them parading, and we meet them everywhere, but what I think of the greit minds ar.d noble hearts that may have been crushed down aud subdued into the automatons who comtoe hose shining ranks. And then to thick of their numbers to think that the little city of Maycnco, with a population of 36,000, gar risons as many soldiers as ompose the stand ing army of the United States, with its innu merable miles of territory and its millions cf inhabitants.

On motion of Mr. Doilse, a res. olutionwas adopted calling on the Secretary of War for copies of all letter addressed to that department or to Wilson bhannon, late Governor of Kansas, by Colonel Sumner, rel ative to Kansas affairs, which have not here tofore been communicated. Mr. Brown gave notice of bis intention to ntroducc a bill providing for the construc tion of a Railroad Telegraphic communica tion between the Atlantic and Tacific coast, and for other purposes. Sir. Wilson Introduced a but amendatory to the act to organize territories of Nebraska and Kansa. Referred to the Comraittoe on Territories. On motion of Mr. Rusk, a joint resolution granting further time to the creditors of Texas to present their claims and other purpose, was taken up. Mr. uusk explained and ad vocated the resolution which extends the time to January 1st, 1858, and repeals tho proviso in the former net for the distribution pro fata of the residue to those who havo filed their releases. Benjamin thought tho resolution ought not to pass, and moved its reference to tho Com mittee on Finance, in order for a thorough in vestigation. Negatived. No final action was taken. Fesscnden introduced a bill in addition to theact,noro effectually to provide for the Banishment of certain crimes against the Fnited Statos. Referred to tho Judiciary Committee. Fessenden explained that it was intended to remedy certain defects in the criminal law. It has been found that for the crime of man slaughter, when committed on tho high seas, but the person not dTinrr until ho arrived on shore, there is no punishment. Instances have occurred where tho individual commit ting such crime has escaped on this ground. Otis' bill Dronosed to remedv that defect. There was also an omission of a similar na ture, with reference to a case of poisoning ta king place at sea, and in which the person does not die till he comes on shore. For this crime there is no punishment provided in ex istlng law. lie alluded to the singular an omaly in law that an assault with dangerous weapons, where death sloes not ensue, is now punishable with three years' imprisonment at hard labor; but the same offence, when death ensues, is punished by three years' imprison ment without hard labor, which seems very inconsistent with justice. Adjourned. UorjsE. Mr. Whitfield introduced a bill providing for the assessment of damages sus tained by loss and destruction of property be longing to citizens of Kansas, during the re cent disturbances in said Territory; also a bil establishing a District Court in Leavenworth City and other places in Kansas, also a bil establishing two additional Land Offices in Kansas. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, from the Commit tee on Ways and Means, reported various In dian, Civil and Army appropriation bills which were referred to the Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, reported a bill amending the 28th section of the tariff act of Aug. 1812, so as to prohibit the importation of indecent and obscure prints, transparen cies, statues, &c, the parties offending to bo proceeded against in due form of law and the article destroyed. Passed. On motion of Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, the bill reducing the duties on imports and for other purposes, reported last session, was postponed till the first Tuesday in January. Debate on the President's annual Message was then resumed. Nicholas contended that notwithstanding the assertions of the President, the agitation of the Slavery question was a legitimate con sequence of the repeal of the Missouri Com promise. It ill became the Executive in the face ot the policy endorsed by the latter, to make use of such language as he had in con dtranation of those who differed from him. It is said that those who oppose the policy of the administration are abolitionists. He held in the broadest sense that Congress may gov ern the territories and exclude Slavery or any other institution it may deem injurious to their prosperity. If this made him an aboli tionist he was one. His object was to supply some pages in political history which had been omitted by the Democrats. lie referred to the speeches of Douglas and others in '18, articles iu newspapers and the proceedings of the Democratic Conventions and. Legislatures to show that in the Demo cratic party there is much difference of opin ion relative to the slavery question, a large portion of them advocating the exclusion of slavery from the Territories. Notwithstand ing this, those who, as a party, hold similar opinions are denounced in offensive terms by the President, who has added insult to injury in his remarks. lie stated that during the Presidential eletcion, it being necessary to conciliate popular sentiment in the Free States, the very men who opposed the elec tion of Fremout charged his friends with hos tility to the prevention of slavery in the Ter ritories. As to the threats of disunion ia the event of Fremont's election made by the Democrats, such fears existed only in the heated and disordered braina of politicians and not in the hearts of the people. Crawford approved of every word in the President's Message. lie believed, notwith standing their denials, that the Republicans were prepared to interfere with the institu tions in the Slave States, refusing to come forward bold and manfully, meeting their po litical adversaries face to face, to attack sla very in the outposts and destroy the institu tion in the States by breaking down the guar antees of the Constitution which secure to the slave holder his property. The project of the Republicans, he contended, was revolu tionary, and he proceeded to show from events in the recent canvass and the history of the past that those who are absolutely in favor of excluding slavery fro-,,. the territo ries, arsenal, and the District of Columbia, eta, aro likewise in favor of interfering with the institution in the slave States. Jones of Tennessee, argued that there was no express power delegated to Congress to es tablish a territorial government, but holding a large extent of soil, the Constitution gives authority for the application of rules under which the country shall be settled and the public lands sold. Then in accordance with this first great principle the law organizing Nebraska and Kansas derived ts vitality from the implied consent of the free men who settle tha country. They could be al lowed the right to frame their own institu tions. The power of Territorial assemblage extended to all rightful subjects of Legisla tion consistent with the Constitution of the United States, and the principles of the or ganic act The Republican party so far from carrying out the principles true to Republi canism, would play the part of despotism un der the cry of liberty and freedom, by claim ing and exercising power to govern the peo ple of the territories. Adjourned. Stags Stkuck. The New York Mirror says : The fact has been mentioned that a mar ried lady, living in elegant stylo in the vi cinity of Madison square, had become so smitten with the stage that no arguments could restrain her from appearing befora the "foot lights," and that she was about to make her debut in the city of Buffalo. This lady is the wife of a lawyer in this city, and tier origin, history and education are somewhat romantic She is said to possess dramatic powers, which have beeu well cul tivated, and her friends predict her triumph ant success. We don't know that there is any harm iu stating that the name of this new aspirant for histrionic honors is Mrs. MacMahon. which wo do not deny. A fine, magnificent specimen of tho sex, full f life and health, a rij red creek, nnd nasning eyo, is, some-- hing th;it docs one good to jook at as sue illuminates tho humdrum sidewalks, and every day streets. A North River steaiaer under full headway, with colors flying is rather a pretty sflit rather stirring and in- sririnc : and we pull up our tired nn to see icr pass, and admire tno swen sno cuts. Comparatively, however, tho ste mi ;r sinks into tnfeiguificance, or some other very deep water, by the Hide of a well kept, well dress ed woman. There is no rubbing it out ; wo men aro tho ornament, charm, blessing, beau ty and bliss of life (men's life, we meun.of coursj). Any means that can bo devised for preserving them should io publicly maao known. They aro different from any other kind of fruit. You cannot pickle them. You cannot do them up in sugar and set them in a cold room, with a paper soaked in brandy over ihcir mouths. You cannot put them up in cans and Bcal them up air tight, without injuring their lorm a.id navor. Now, as men aro so dependont upon women for life's choicest blessings, a proper modo of preserving them becomes of groat moment, and wo are sure that the public will thank us for an infallible receipt. Havo the feet well protected, then pay tho next attention to tho chest. 1 ho chest is the rejiository of the vital organs. There abide the heart and lunirs. It is from the impressions made upon these organs through tho skin, that the shiver comes. It is na ture's quako tho alarm boll at the onnct of danger. A woman never shivers irora tno effect of cold upon her limtH, or hands, or head, but let the cold htrike!throuih her clo thing on her client, and oif go her teeth into chatter, and tho whole organism is in i commotion. One sudden and severe impress ion of cold upon tho c lest has slain its tens of thousands. Therefore, while the feet aro well looked after, nover forget the chest. These points attended to, the natural connec tions of the dress will supply the rest, and the woman is readv for tho air. Now let her . . ... . . visit her neighbors, go chopping, call upon the poor, and walk for tho good of it, for tho fun of it. Keep away from tho stove or register. Air that ia dry or burnt, moro or less charged with gasses evolved by the luei, is poi3on. uo up stairs and make the bod: with mittens on. ... ... 1 IM . 1 J iM.i- D ly around tno nouso use maa, anu vcmuaie the rooms. Don't sit pent up in a single room wilh double windows. Fruit will not retain its full form and flavor in air-tight cans; neither will women. They need air. If the shiver comes on during these operations, go directly and put on something more about the chest Again, do not live in dark rooms. Light fades the carpet, but it feeds tho flower. . No living animal or vegetable can enjoy health in darkness. Xiight is almost a3 necessary as air, and a brown tan is far preferable, even as a matter of beauty, to a sickly paleness of complexion. Thus much in regard to tho physical means for preservation. There are moral means no less important. Every woman should be married to an excellent man. Marriago.it is true, brings care and wear, but it is the ring that is worn that keeps bright, and tho watch that lies still and unwound that nets out of order. The sweet sympathies evolved in the relations of the family, tho new energies de veloped by new responsibilities, the new compensation for all outlays of strength, brings about a delightful jjlay of the heart and intellect, which, in their re action upon the body, produces an effect that is nothing less than preservation. Then there is a high er moral power than this ono which we speak of soberly and honestly. No one is completely armed againot tho encroaching ills of life, who has in the heart no place for re ligion. The calmness, the patience, and the joy and hope that are iu possession of that woman whose heart is right in its highest re lation can never fail to preserve and heighten every personal power and charm that she porsesses. There I you have tho receipt. Some of it is in sportive form, but it is not the less so ber truth. It han within it the cure of many a disease the preventive for more. It might bo made longer; but , when wo sea its pre scriptions universally adopted, it will lw time to bring forward the remainder. States Senators.

There ari two to be elected by tho present Lohlaturc; Mr. Bright's present term expiring on the 4 h of March next, and the other teat having been vacant for two years.

We have been told that when John Bigler, late Governor of the State of California, waa a member of tho State Legislature, Mrs. B., his wife, absolutely washed the clothes of some of the honorable gentlemen for bo much a dozen. At the time of his election Bigler was very poor, and his per diem woj hardly enough for himself and wife to live on in these prodigal times. To make both ends m ect, and save something agaiDst a rainy day, Madame Bigler put her shoulder to the wheel, as above related. Now, won't this be rather startling to the pale faced, attenuated damsels of the East, who scream and faint at tho sight of a wash tub or cob web? Think of it. Tho wife of an ex-govcrnor, with her sleeves and gown tucked up, bending over the wash tub, while her husband, with his clean dicky standing upright, chafing his ears, ro-o to a question of privilege, "Mr. Speaker! Mr. S-p-e-a-k-e r!" And then think of the ex-washerwoman-being feted, three years after, as the wife of the Governor of the State of California, worth one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ! enough money to make tho heads of univer sal snobdom duck and dive like an affright ed waterfowl in a thunder storm. Good for the Pennsylvania Dutch girl ! Five hundred years henco, when the histo rian lifts the veil from the catacombs of the past, and writes tho history. of the unforgot ten dead, he may, perhaps, append this little episode to the history of ono of California's Governors ; and the little ragged girls that then go down to dip water from the Uio Sac ramento, may think better of their mothers who have to labor, because a long time ago Mrs. John Bigler, the Governor's wife, filled her wash tub from the same noblo river. These are the pioneer women of Califor nia ; there are many such, as strong willed and as true, who quail cot at their own foot steps in the woods, whose hearts &well with hope at The banking of tho hammer, And creaking of tho cane. ll Three times as an elector, twico ai a candidate for Cjngress, Dr. Fitch has borne our stand ard gallantly and victoriously. Then comes tho question of locality. Mr. Bright resides in the extreme South of the State. In selec tions for Stato officers, Senators, and all places of marked influence, the North has been overlooked since the first organization of the party. In this manner we have been de prived of all the advantages consequent up on such influences, and yet expected to ac complish as much without such helps as tha more favored localities. Liko Northern Illinois, from accident of emigration, we are somewhat difforcntly con 6tituted. Fanaticism upon the question of slavery has found among us more susceptible material for its operations. The last election, however, bears witness to tho labor and fidelity of the Northern Domocracy, that should command the atten tion of the party everywhere. Throughout the entire northern districts we reduced the majorities of the opposition with marked re sults ; the ' boasts of our enemies and tho fears of our friends were dissipated by mu tual disappointment, whilst the southern dis trict did no more than was anticipated of them, if so much. ' If the Democracy of the State, then, wish the northern Democracy, strengthened and encouraged, while at the same time they would be doing the entire party credit," adding fresh vigor, talent, and influence to our already national reputation in the Ssnato of the United States, give us Graham N. Fitch, as tho colleague of Mr. Bright. We ask no sacrifice from the party. We only ask, while it does itself honor, that it do us justice, and place the party in a po sition of integrity to itself, which will secure us in the future from all possibility of over throw. ... Will not our southern friends reflect ono moment upon these suggestions, and say if we are not right ia our position and reason able iu our expectations and demands. Laporte Itrpub. Timts. A LuDiotocs Mistake. Tho Springfield correspondent of the Missouri Republican re lates the following incident in the murder trial in that city last week. . A ludicrous mistake occurred upon the part of Gen. Linder, during his argument. He unfortunately took a young lawyer whose seat had always been beside the pris oner, Theodore Anderson to be the prison er himself. This vouns lawyer, like most others, was in the habit of whispering to the bystander, consulting tho books frequently, sticking his feet upon the desks, and looking wise generally ; all these things did not es cape tho notice of Gen. Linder, who sonsid ered it queer conduct for one being tried for his life. Said Gen. Linder, ''Gentlemen of the Ju ry, notico the conduct of the prisoner," here he pointed to the young lawyer, who was just at that time a conspicuous object, "no tice, I say his conduct; here he is atone mo ment reading the books, at another whisper ing to the members of the bar, at another " here ho was interrupted by the aforesaid young lawyer, who politely informed the General that he was not the prisoner. The General looked somewhat astonished at this piece of information; after recovering himself he said, "Well, sir, I beg your pardon, but I have taken you to bo the prisoner during the whole trial." It is hardly ncccessary to 6ay that the gravity of the Court was completely upset; the Judge, Jury, and everybody else roared with laughter, but Gen. Linder; evon the young lawyer thought it a good joke. We have heard of lawyers being taken for criminals, before, but this is the first time we ever witnessed it. cnaaLta tianit, ACBi'nre a iincm., uanar chi ll IIAIIN, SCIINULL & CO., PROPRIETORS Or TIIK MKW YORK CLOTHING STORE. 17 EaatWaahluictou-Bt, oppoaite tho Capitol Houae.

The Pittsburgh Gazette of Monday says : Tho wind blew alon the wharf on Sab bath tremendously. A middlo aged woman was blown across Smithfield street at the cor ner of Water, alighting upon her head in the gutter. Her forehead Wits mocu cut. Tho Monongahela bridge was severely tried, rassencrs had to tako hold of the wires to keep themselves from being thown down. Whether crinoline had anything to do with the catastrophe that btfel the lady in the case, the Gazette is not so inconsiderate as to say. 07" The following paragraph is cut from tho New York Express. Tho action of the Captain will be considered cool, even for this season of the year : A mercantile firm of this city received last week a letter from tho captain of one of the brigs they chartered, dated Barbadoes, in which ho informs them that ho believes the United States are about going to eternal smash, he ha9 sold ship and cargo and pock eted the money, which he don't thins they will ever see again. lie concludes with some complimentary allusions to our countrymen, and wishes he bad never seen any of them. The vessel is the brig Boston. Canal Trustee. An Indianapolis corres pondent of the Evansville Enquirer, names the following gentlemen as candidates for Canal Trustee, viz. : Mr. Edsall, of Allen county ; S. J. Anthony, of Porter ; J. Ris tine, of Fountain; Benj. Wolfe, of Sullivan; Houston Miller, of Crawford ; D. Hanfatet ter, of Orange; G. F. Gookerly, ef Vigo ; Dr. Graff, of Gibson ; Mr. Fuller and Mr. J. Woodson Hughes, of Vanderburg. To this number he might have added the name of the present incumbent, A. M. Puett, of Rock ville. The Enquirer concurs in a sugzestion of the Washington Bee, that all the candi dates from the Southern part of tho State get together and agree upon a man to receive the entire Southern support in the Legisla ture. Wo do not think the suggestion will be heeded. But we shall see. La.Amer. Ikland Shipment or Coin The Adams Express Company have received or jeri from tho Treasury Department for tho transfer of $500,000 gold coin from St. Louis to New Orleans, and $1,000,000 in silver coin and bullion from the latter city to Philadelphia. Within the last four years this Company has transferred for the United States Government $83,000,000 in coin, and never yet have sus tained the loss of one dime in the operation; on the contrary, they have a credit for excess of weight on amounts delivered. Railhoad Accieent. A shocking acci dent occured on the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne & Chicago K. U. on Friday night lait, near Lima, Dliio. Bv the breakinz of an axle, one of the passenger cars was precipitated down an embankment some 15 or 20 feet high, and one of the passengers, an elderly lady from Iowa, was killed. Another lady had her thigh broken, and eome eight or ten others were severely injured. We have not learned the names of the sufferers. (T Mra. Dr. Harriet K. Hunt has written her anuu3l letter to Mr. F. U. Tracy, the city treasurer, protesting against being taxed without the right to vote. The perseverance of the lady is commendable. Boston Post.
