WASHINGTON, D. 0., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1861. No. GO. ,- (, :(liE 3yifl!l R PRICE ONE CENT. Too Lotto a Name. Many (rood things oc cur which are never known outside of the little community in which they occur. Wo have just heard of one that is certainly too good to be lost. We will give it, but will not be repon eible for buttons broken off by its perusal, In a neighboring county lives a gentlcmnn who, notwithstanding he is good looking ntid a very clever man, and would doubtless make a good husband if married has lived a little beyond the years of rnnturi y without any fair lady to bear his name in other words, ho is an old bachelor. Well, in the village where he resides, on a recent occasion, on a Sunday night, it was announced in a company of gen tlemen, of whom ourliero was ono, there would be preaching that night. Hereupon it was agreed that each gentleman should escort a lady to church. Each one was appointed to escort a lady, and our hero was told he must accom pany a certain young lady. He replied that he was not acquainted with the young lady herself, but was acquainted with her father. He was told that the lady's father would certainly be at home, and introduce him. He consented, and dressing in his best clothes, started to the lady's house. On arriving there, ho found sev eral ladies seated in the parlor, but the gentle man was absent. Ho was in a fix, and now to get out of it was the question. Making up bis mind in a moment what to do, summoning all his bachelor courage, 'which, by the way, is not very great, he selected the youngest lady of the group, and thus addressed her: "Miss , lam very sorry your father is not hero to introduce me. A number of gen tlemen were appointed to take a lady to church, and I was appointed to escort you. s your father is not here to introduce me, I will have to do it myself. I am Mr. , late of the State of , but now a resident of this place, attorney at law nnd solicitor in chance ry and proctor in admiralty, will practice in this and adjoining counties. All business in trusted to me will bo promptly attended to. Collections made throughout the State. 1 11m at your service, Miss." Tho young lady, in a style of the sweetest simplicity, declined bis proposed kindness, saying she couldn't go to church with a man who had such n long name. We tiro glad to say our hero still lives, and is ready to practice as aforesaid. A knavish hack driver, at Chicago, having to drive an old lady about a mile, to tho house of her friend, persuaded her that it was four miles, as he had to take n circuit to avoid a broken bridge. Driving her about tho city for an hour, he set her down at the house ot her friend, who, being informed of the charge he had made, got him to carry the luggage into a dark room, locked him in, and kept him there till ho had refunded $2.20, by slipping the cash under the door. King Victor Emanuel has sent a present to Teresita, Garibaldi's daughter, who is now re siding with her father at Cuprera. It is a dia mond necklace, with earrings to match, and was to havo been presented to her on New Year's day, but that the stormy sea prevented its being received in time. Mr. Cobden, writing from Algiers on tho 28th of December, says, "the weather here is a com plete contrast to what you are experiencing. On Christmas day, the English residents met at church, and on coming away, every one re marked, 'How warm it is 1 ' We have green peas every day fordinucr, and ripe strawberries, and beautiful roses and flowers in the gardens. With good British steamers to Marseilles, we ought to be only seventy-two hours from Lon don. It is a wonderful change of climate with iu so short a time and distance." TnE Batteby a Failure. The Philadel phia, l'l ess's correspondent at Charleston , says : " Tho cotton battery is said to be a failure, which, I presume, will account for tho no small denying all knowledge of- it. When it was nearly completed some one discovered that it could not float. I saw this extraordinary work of art, and can vouch for its existence ; and, nlthough the Mercury's correspondent at Wash ington seems to have been ignorant of its where abouts, the Mercury's editor was thoroughly posted, and was silent." Illumikation ix New Orleans. The Com mon Council of New Orleans havo passed a recommendation to have all the builJings in the city illuminated on tho night of tho Cth of February, in houor of the independent Repub lic of Louisiana. PiiErAnATtoNH i-o n the Haik and Skin. It is a fault, both of taste and judgment, with many ladies, that they allow questions of Macas bar, pomatum, rouge, etc., to run too busily in their heads. There can he no universal quick cner of curls or thickener of braids, because it is not possible to make such an article that is, ono that will absolutely supply the place of na ture in those respects. To make trees grow in different Boils, different composts are required. Even rouge is many-colored. And it should be further borne in mind that there is positive dan ger in tampering with many of the nostrums that are put forth especially those for whiten ing the skin. There can be no infallible bleach nil, without tho compound possessing chemical properties so strong that prudence and safety require that it should bo let alone. This remark applies generally to most cosmetics professed to he adapted for ull temperaments and complex ions. In tho violent days of our grandmothers of old, when they willingly suffered any amount ol tight-lacing, head-powdering, nnd other cruel ties, in the cause of fashion and beauty, Myra consented to bo tied by her hands to the bed post for hours together, nnd Cbloe submitted to any amount of bleediug, in search of white hands, but it is to be hoped that the ladies of the present generation havo become wiser nnd less barbarous. It is also to be remembered that nil artificial fairness in a lady's nppearance has n gha8tliuess and unreality infinitely more stri king than tho blemishes combalted with ; and general caro of the health, maintained as a duty, not as a pretext for hypochondriac and self treasuring finicality, will, in nine cases out of ten, suffice for the preservation of female beauty, far more unfailingly than vitriols, or fluids, or oils. Vitriol should in no case bo used, or any compound of which it forms an ingredient. Now nnd then a fluid, or an oil of an innocent character, maybe used, us serving a temporary use. VHISOELEANEOUS ITEMS. Th,3t.

The' discovery was made by the unexpected meeting of ai u of the drd-Benedictsat1iffVetMCncer T A Yorkshireman having occasion to visit France, was dumb-founded to find, on reaching Calais, that men, women, nnd children, all spoke French. In tho height of tho perplexity which this occasioned, he retreated to bed, and was awakened in the morning by the cock crow ing, whereupon he burst into a wild exclama tion of astonishment and delight, and exclaimed, " Thank goodness, there's English at last 1 " A parly of fishermen caught, in the Delaware river, near Point Pleasant, at a single haul, five thousand five hundred suckers, as plump, fat, and juicy, ns ever graced n table, on Thurs day.

Great fun has been created in Turin by tho piscovery that a golden crown, representing oak and laurel leaves, which somo enthusiasts firesented to Victor Emanuel, was purchased rom a Jew for six thousand crowns : the Jew having purchased it at tho sale of the effects of 1' anny r.lsler, tne dancing woman, whose name and the date of its presentation to her in Lon don are engraved inside, and have only just now been discovered. HoRitiiiLE. At the entrance to Milford Haven, England on Christmas eve, a gunner named Burke, with a rope fastened to his waist, plunged into a heavy sea to recover a small boat that had been carried from its fastenings. The rone nrovinir too short, another was added. which broke at the joining, a- d left the man, hampered, to be carried out to seu, amid tho cries of his wife and children. A comrade named Kay, a powerful swimmer, plunged in to rescue him, but was dashed back senseless by a huge wave, thirty feet high upon the rocks. In a little whilo tho body of the drowned man roso to the surface, and a sea gull perched on its head, and, in sight of nil on shore, com menced picking at it until the ebbing sen bore the corpse .and its wretched freight out of sight. Two days afterwards the terror stricken widow gavo birth to another child. A skater of thirty years experience, who has taught his children iu a fortnight, writes tho following directions : "Begin by walking on tho ice, crossing the feet at each step, and they should practice it also who can only run forwards on the insido edgo, if they wish to become proficient. Walk any ten paces forwards, crossing the one foot over tho other at overy pace, and then walk the same lino backwards, crossing the one foot be hind tho other at every pace. You will get a fall or two at first, but in a few lessons you will find that you can do it without them. As soon ns this is accomplished with moderate facility, still adhering to the mossing the feet, which is tho whole secret, let the foot follow the ekate, and you will find that you are, insensibly as it were, rollini! both backwards and forwards on tho outside edge. It is a simple truth, and is a mechanical certainty, ns, tho leg once crossed, the skate on each foot can only rest on the out side edge and the balance of the body iu that positiou has been learnt." A smart wlfo cleared fivo hundred dollars, a now suit of clothes, and two new trunks, from an amorous bachelor, under tho plea of eloping with him. Elisha Griffith induced the Grunts to emigrate to Jordan City, Minn., and take charge of a saw-mill ; times went hard, nnd Griffith presented the Grants with eighty acres cfland; the mill was burnt down; and return ing from Minneapolis one night, Griffith gave Mrs. Grant $500 in gold, on condition of her eloping with him j sho told her husband, nnd obtaining an outfit from her lover, was to meet him at La Crosse ; sho went to Chicago instcod, and was arrested by telegraph on Monday, for stealing tho $500 ; Griffith came on, and tho caso was heard on Tuesday, resulting iu a ver dict in favor of Mrs. Grant. PROSPECTUS OP THE WEEKLY NATIONAL REPUBLICAN. Washington, D. O., December, 1880. The undersigned have commenced the publica tion, In this city, of a weekly newspaper, called the National Republican. It Is printed ona large sheet, 27 by 42 Inches, and is furnished at the low prices stated below. It will contain all the original matter of the daily National Republican, with the exception of local news not Interesting to country subscribers. It will give full reports of the proceedings of Congreit, and of the other departments of tho National Government. It will contain all the news of the day, foreign and domestic, markets, 4e., 4c, as well as an original correspondence from all parts of the country. The miscellaneous department will re ceive special attention, and, la all respects, the effort will be made to establish the cbaracterof the National Republican as a , FAMILY NEWSPAPER. In politics, the paper will be Republican, sus taining the Incoming Administration of Mr. Lin coin, but disclaiming, however, any pretension to be the organ of the President elect. There Is no other Republican paper In tho District of Columbia, or In the vicinity of it, and It Is believed that recent events have opened to such a paper an Important sphere of useful ef fort. The time has come, when the actual ad ministration of the Government upon Republican principles will explode, tho misrepresentations which have made those principles so distasteful to the .-'outh. But li Is not only here, and In this vicinity, that the projectors of the National Republican hope to make It useful. To the whole country they offer a journal which will discuss nallonal politics from a national standpoint, nnd which will never be swerved from patriotic duty by any overpowering pressure of local Interest.
