C, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1861. No. 59. II Li- PRICE ONE CENT. A FIRESIDE CASE OF SECESSION. Mr. L. 1 Stillinger is h Southern gentleman married to a Northern lady, and residing in Cincinnati, being employed as a book-keeper in 0110 of the mercantile, houses ol this city. Mr. Stillinger, like some of his compatriots, is of rather a gasconading disposition, cspti iully on Saturday evenings, when ho receives his weekly salary, and devotes a portion of it to potions of exciting beverages. Mrs. Stillinger excels her husband considerably, both in phy sical and intellectual development, and gener ally contrives to keep him in pretty good train ing. The secession turore has made the heroic element in Mr. Stilliuger's composition more ungovernable than ever j and on returning homo, last Saturday evening, just " tight "enough to bo valiant, he confronted Mrs. S., with what he believed to be an awe inspiring air. "Madam," he exclaimed," the injuries which you and all jour tribo of Northern miscreants have inflicted on myself and the rest ol the Southern chivalry, can no longer be endured, and the breaking up of this old worn out Na tional Confederacy must of course bo attended with a dissolution of tho union between you and me." " So you may think just now," disdainfully answered the lady, " but you will be of a difler ent opinion after a while. " Nevcrl," was the stout rejoinder. "From this moment I renounce, disclaim, and resolve not to touch nuybody of Northern birth and everj thing of Northern manufacture. I'll dnuk to the complete independence and the aover eientv of tho South." lie was aboui to take a bottle of domestic champagne from a closet, when he was inter rupted by a derisive laugh from his wife, who inquired : "And are you going to drink to thnt senti ment in Longworth's Cincinnati made Ci tawba?" "No I forgot'lwns that stuff," said lie, hastily putting back tho bottle. " Hut get out my shirts and stockings, and pick theiu up, so that 1 may secede at once, mid join the noble army of South Oaroliunjialriots." " But jou have renounced all yourBhirts and Blockings," coolly answered Mrs. S., for they ure articles of Northern munulacturc." " None of your treachcrousgummon," shouted Stillinger, " nil my shirts, except tho collars and wristbands, are made of pure Southern cot ton." " Yes, but tho cotton was woven into muslin at the Lowell mills, and made into shirts by a Yankee sewing machine," replied Mrs. Stillin ger. "This is the way the North adds insult to injury," exclaimed Mr. S., much enraged. " I think, witli Governor Brown, of Georgia, that instead of seceding from the Union ourselves, the best plan is to drivo the Northerners out of it ; and so, madam, instead of going out of the house myself, I'll turn you out. With these words, he seized the astonished lady by the arm?, and shoved her into the entry. Here there stood a large tub of water, which was about to be used for scrubbing ; and Mrs. Stillinger (who, as wo have said, was more than a match for her husband in all respects) grasped mm by the collar, Hung bun into the tun, aim rolled him over three or four times before she released him. Soured, and shivering, and so bered, Mr. Stillinger crept up stairs to change his clothes, whining forth: '' Why, Jane, I only wnntid to see if I could frighten you. 1 m not such a blamed fool as to try secession in earnest. Only send me up a glass ot hot toddy, and I'll not ask for any other concession." And so Mr. Stillinger did not secede. Cin cinnati Gazette. A Sleut Passexulii. Somo timo ago, Mons. M., a merchant of Liege, took passage in a railway car on the route between that city and Paris. lie bought u ticket for a first-class Elace and entered tbe train, which left Liege at alf past two o'clock P. M. He appealing to bo the only person in that car, ana feeling fa tigued, be wrapped himself up in his clonk and stretched himsetlat length upon the comiortable seat for a nap, and wus soon sound asleep. After some time he did not know how long he awoke, and found that the train hud stopped, and that night had now commenced to full. " Wo are at one ol tho stations," thought he, and lay down again. After a second nap, he again woka at a stand still. " It seems there are a great many stopping places on this road," said Mr. M. Then once more stretching himself, he was soou in the arms of tho drowsy god. In the morning, the rujsof the sun penetrat ing in the car window, roused the, sleeper, who, after shaking himself, rose and looked forth. The train, he supposed, had again stopped. Wishing to know how far ho might ba Irum Paris, he poked his head out of tho window and culled to n workman wearing tho uniform of the railway company, and asked il the train would "start soon." "Start I" exclaimed tho workman, with n look of astonishment. " Why, sir, vou have got two hours to wait et 1 " " Two hours I What tho devil do you mean? Is this tho sort of way the "fust train" travels? What is tho name of this station?" " Liege," replied tho other. The astonished merchant, now wide awake, sprang from the car, and soon found thnt his informant was quite conect. 'lhe conductor of tho train, the previous day, haling fuuud that he had one car more than was necessary, had detached the 0110 occupied by Mr. M., and left it standing in tho deput. Having knocked at the door, receiving 110 answei liom tho sleeping traveller, it was naturally supposed that tho car was empty. Mr. M. took a " fresh start " two hours after wards, but slept no more until ho arrived in Paris. Tho fashionnblo world of St. Petersburgu is much exercised just now by tho aniiouuceiuei.t that threo elderly princesses ot the most illus trious families aro about to marry quite voung and obscure men, their respective medical at tendants. A meteoric stone fell at Uelvidere, Illinois, on Friday, which is supposed to hnvo weighed over a ton ; it shook the earth, with a sound like henvy thunder; the ground round where it fell, for a considerable distance, was strewn as with cinders. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Three ladies fell 011 the slippery sidewalk at New Haven, Connecticut, last week, and broke their legs. American sewing machines, contained in richly ornamented cases, have bpen among the most fashionable of the New Year's gills in Paris this season. A bill has been introduced into the Legisla ture of Illinois, which provides that all the real and personal property of a woman, on marry ing, shall remain her own, and subject to her own disposing, tic. Tho Buffalo Commercial learns from a gen tleman who professes lo be " posted," that tho Clifton House, at Niagara Falls, has recently been leased for a few months to somo promi nent citizens nf Charleston, S. C, for tue ac commodation of their families. St. Paul's Cathedral, London, one of the must magnificent structures in the world, was erected under the superintendence of 0110 bish op, one architect, and ono master mason, al though the time occupied in building it was thirty five years. 1 he cost of the entire edifice wis $4,0011,000. Tho Troy Times relates a case of spiritualism in that city, where the interrogator as to the muider of Horace B. Sergeant had his own name spelt out by the spirits. There is a beggar detective in Philadelphia, appointed by law, and paid a certain sura to intercept the would-be needy and those who ask utms. San Francisco has recently been visited by a great flood, washing down such quantities of sand that sump of the tewers have caved in, mid the others are so clogged up that they are, for the time, quite useless. A brick wall in front ol n house in Stockton street, above Greenwich, fell with a great crash, but lortunutely injured t a one. Father Griffon, n Catholic priest, whoc horse died under him on the great morass plains, British Columbia, and who lay freezing and UmUhing for five dajs before ho was found and conveyed to n place of safety, has since had one of his legs nmputntcd below tho kucc, but is now rapidly recovering. Why is it that the secessionists seize only tho empty forts ? Why don't they make a dash at ihajuu ones I An Excellent Uventiov. Tho Rochester Exiireii suvs that n irentltman residiui: in Sen- aca Fulls has invented a contrivance by which those who travel on railroads can be answered a question with which conductors are much bored, viz : " What is the next station ? " The invention consists of a table constructed 011 rollers in same manner as a counting-house calendar, and the conductor, by turning tho rollers, places tho name of the station before the eyes of the passengers in the car. Oue of these useful invention is now used 011 the Cen tral road. When the Emperor of Russia was on his wny to Poland, for the famous Warsaw interview with his brother of Austria, General Operman, Governor ot lladom, nearly fell victim to a hoax. Whilo awaiting the arrival of tho Emperor, the General received an order to change the uni form of his police and put them in the Gari- buldian red shirt. He executed tho order, and only learned that it was a hoax barely in timo to save him from receiving the Emperor at the bead of a Garibaldian band, n sight which, us suredly, would have been anything but pleasing to the autocrat. Qui ex Victoria's Pkumkie. Tho London correspondent of the New York Sun savs: " I was told an anecdoto of the Queen, which illustrates her good sense and real desire to pro mote the welfare of her subjects. She had agreed to have her photograph taken for tho gratification of Rueh of her subjects as might desire fo possess the counterfeit presentment of their ruler. She presented herself in n plain black silk without a particle of ornament. Tho photogiupher ventured to suggest that she should send for somu jewels. ' No,' said the Queen,, 'this photograph is to go among my people, and I wish to do all in my power to dis courage extravagance.' It is such little ancc dotes us these that have secured the Queen a high place in the regard of the people." DtscRit'Tiov in' Chaulfstov. Charlesfon is an old-fashioned city, still preserving much of the aspect of colonial times. The houses 8utS anxious to put on as ancient a look as possible, as if in delcrence to the uiiprogrcsivespiiitot the place ; and in tho moro aristocratic quar ter they are geneiully built apart, surrounded by gardens or walks, walla 1 111 from curious eyes. A peep insido reveals glimpses of old brick mansions with stono dressings, mid broad stone steps lending up lo a central door. Liter additions, built 111 accordance with modern ideas, seem strangely incongruous. As inch private house uf any pretension endeavors to difler in appeaianco with its neighbor, thev hnvo a diversified aspect by no means classical. Ihu churches are the most costly and solid looking of any in the Atlantic Slates. Tho business parts of tho city remind one of paral lei locahcies in New York, though now, unfor tunately, tho signs of business lire but few. The houses aro of every tmt, and the individuality of the owners is impiesstd upon wood, brick nod imitation iiinrblc A bank, Imilt like a Doric temple, has for its next 111 ighbor a rival in tho shape of a miniature Moorish palace.
