The License Question.
Nearly every prominent city in Indiana
went against license at the recent election.
'EransTille went for license. Well, we shall
hate a fine opportunity here of testing the
tjirm'tive workings of the new law. It may
.not be amiss to try the experiment one year,
of gmi.g licenses, free of cost, to every one
who desires keep ng a coffee house and can
procure the proper bonds. If the evil of
liquor retailing appear to increase in our
midst during that term, under the experi
ment, the remedy will be at hand next April.
- We hare a large number of coffee houses in
this city, but truly we do -net Enow another
place in which such establishments are per
mitted, where they receire so small a sup-
'port.1 The Aome patronage is small Our

of any other city in Indiana. Wc do not
xeept the young men of those cities where
..drinking establishments sre prohibited our
remark is of general application, and its
ttutb cannot be ajccesaf J y refuted. Where
young men or old men want to drink, there is
oerer much difficulty iu readily obtaining the
liquor. There la probably as much tempta
tion in the prohibition of that to which they
are inclined, ts in its free proffer.

finely-there is already sufficient of the su

Thx New Silver Coinage. Tbe officers
of the mint st Philadelphia are now closely
engaged in coinirg the new silver piecea o
the denomination of three, ten, and twenty'
fire cents. In order to meet the public wants
for small silver change, tbe work at the mint
now goes on both at night and by day. The
new quarter of a dollar weighs precisely
four pennyweights, and is 7 grains less than
the ,' former piece. As compared with the
current Spanish quarterage new coin is de
eidedly heavier and somewhat finer. None
of the neT dimes or half dimes have yet

Destructive Fire
We notice in the Louisville papers of the
11th an account of a terrible conflagration,
which burned up Tower's Stable, a Cabinet
maker shop, a Coffee house; a Smoke house
and Ice house, and confectionary in connection
with the stable were destroyed. The aggre
gate amount of damage sustained, will not
exceed 87000. Partially insured.

Repeated experiments among farmers,
prove that not one grain in twenty of last

net fully mature before the frosts of last
Antumn. This is a matter worth looking at.
OCrThe excellent Louisville ai.d Erans-

fXA destructive fire occurred at Rush-
ville, Ind., on Moodsy the 23th ult., which
consumed tbe f oaey House, and all the
houses attached to it, together with several
other buildings, store rooms, dec. Two horses
and one cow were burnt in - one of the
stables. The Republican ears that the loss
will reach 810,000. The fire originated in
the hay mow of the Posey House stable, by
some unknown process. ; .
Destiuctite Fire in Cihcihjtati. On
Saturday night the Wm. Tell Coffee house,
the Phoenix Restaurat, and five or six build

and the Phoenix, a new house, was said to be
a most magnificent concern.
fC Renewed efforts were made last Fri
day to clear the steamer G. W. Kendall from

- OCyDaniel Dowrey, a Scotchman by birth
and a blacksmith by trade,' left Cincinnati
early in January 1852, to go South by the
river. He quitted the steamer on which he
embarked near Evanaville, since which time
his brother, residing nesr Madison, hss had
no news of him whatever. Any information
respecting him is requested to be transmitted

Mass., on Friday week, it was stated by the
principal, Mr. AMen, that one of his pupils
had been connected with the school fire years,
during which time he had not once been ab-

of imitation.

The Maghoha. The Louisville Courier
makes the following notice of the danger of
the Magnolia in a late storm, and of the
narrow escape of Capt.' Thomasson from
drowning :
The Magnolia encountered a terrific storm
at Natchez, but tbe boat was happily landed
before she receded the force of it. and no
damage waa done. Many passengers, how
ever, were terribly frightened, aa the fire
from tbe furnace blazed out on the decks, and
set the wood on the guards on fire.
Capt. Thomason, who was on the lower
deck, and in the act of stepping out on the
guard fell .overboard, and had a most pro
vidential escape from drow ning. It was very
dark, and amid thecoulusion and noise ol the
storm he was not I 'en to fall, and had to de
pend solely upon binuelf for rescue. Ahhough
burthened with an overcoat, and heavy boots,
he managed tj swim, and first grasped a fen
der, but not being able to retain his grasp, he
was swept away under the wheel but came
up alongside the guard, and finally reached the
rudder at the stern, and clambered up to the
deck, which be gained in safety, although
much exhausted. His presence of mind
never deserted him for a moment, and to that
no doubt Is owing his safety.
A letter from Havana describes a religious
procession in that city:
First, says the writer, came four negroes,
filsying the violi n, bass viol, flute and flageo
et, rolling their eyes and grining, as if it
were a supreme joke. Then boys and men
canning candles, and shoving every body
aside. Then a hang-dog looking friar in
white, wilh cowl thrown back, carelessly
swinging a huge censer, and glancing up
wards from aide to aide at the balconies full of
fair Habaneras, as he lounged along. Then
four men, carrying a gilded canopy, in front
of which paraded a boy in white, and a priest
in white and gold, bearing the shining Host,
and followed by another preist resplendent in
a gold-laced, yellow robe. Then "the srmy
incog.? black, white and yellow. An omni
bus got in their way. Livid with rage, tbe
center man, more incensed than ever I saw a
monk before, rushed up, swore at the driver,
stopped the horses, and turned out the passen
gers. The driver, a good-looking young
Spaniard, shrugged his shoulders, and winked
at the spectators. Tbe passengers humbly
gave up, except a gray-haired American in
spectacles, who fought the priest through the
window, and waa only dislodged by the joint
and furious swearing of tbe holy man and five
or six soldiers who came to his aid.
EcxrriAS Ruzixeks. Mr Bryant, in a let
ter to tbe Evening Post, thus describes the
wsy in which he effected a landing at Alex
andria: On the landing we were at once surroun
ded by a mob of fellows in white turbans or
fez i aps and blue cotton shirts tied round the
waisi by a suing, offering us their donkeys
with loud shouts, thrusting each other aside
to get at us, and blocking our way so that
we could not get forward a single step. As
there was apparency ou alternative, I toos
the one who stood immediately before rr.e by
the throat, shoved him out of the way, and
then attacked the next one in like manner
till I made my escape out of the crowd.
The good natured Musselmana smiled at find
ing themselves tbu unceremoniously han
dled bran infidel, and I jumped upon one of
the best looking animsls, and trotted off
through the streets swimming with 'white
mud to a hotel, followed by a donkey driver,
who brnndished his long stick which he oc
casionally brought down on the quadruped's
flanks to encourage his speed.

Miss Ursutesrad BTr. Thackeray.
A report for some time prevailed in London
that the authoress of "Jane Eyre" was once
a governess in the family of Mr. Thackeray,
and that the character of Rochester was sug
gested to her by contemplating that of the
author of Vanity Fair." This story, we
perceive, by the papers, has made its way
across the Atlantic. We have reason to be
lieve, however, that it is quite destitute of
truth, and that Miss Bronte never saw Mr.
Thackeray till after MJane Eyre" bad been
published, and become famous. Another
story of the two celebrities, which hay been
circulated by gossips, is probably nearer tbe
truth. Miss Broute, it appears, before her
appearance as a first-rate lioo in- London
society, had cherished for Mr. Thackeray a
sentiment of cordial admiration, and was par
ticularly desirous of becoming acquainted
with him. They net; it was at a dinner
party; and they were seated directly opposite
to each other. The most casuil reader of
"Jane Eyre," "Shir ley,' and-Viltetter" meat
be aware that one of the qualifications- of a
hero, in the estimation of Currer Bell, is mo
deration in eating and drinking. The cha
racters she likes (herself included) are. repre
sented to be indifferent to be pleasures of the
tabid, while the people she detests have usu
ally something of the cormorant in their dis
position. Now, it happened that at the time
of this critical first meeting, Mr. Thackery
was recovering from a long and severe ill
ness. He had been bled and he had been
physicked, to within an inch of his life,
and his appetite was consequently thit of a
Sioux Indian, who, titer forty-eight hours
fast, sits down to a broiled buffalo hump.
The repast began, and the eyes of the favor
ito and distipguished author were fastened to
his plate. With silent fury he devoured.
Insatiable seemed tbe much-consuming man.
Not a word did he address to the wondering
Jane, whose largo eyes grew larger as the
meal went on. Satisfied, at length, he lean
ed back in his chair, stupified and slumbe
rous. .Miss . Bronte was disenchanted.
Whether she ever recovered from the shock,
whether she's till regards Mr. Thackeray with
horror and disgust, or whether an explanation
was ever vouch-safed her, gossip has emitted
to mention. Jome Journal.
Monks on their way to Ixdtaita. The
Warhe'tts Freund, of St. Gall, Switzerland,
publishes the following details upon the de
parture of two brothers from the abbey of
On Monday the 20th of December, two
religious ruouks of tbe chapter of the Bene
dictines of Notre Dame d'Einsiedlen took
leave of their felljw-brothers, and being pro
vided with passports sanctioned by the Fed
eral Council, they began their journey over
the seas. A very grand plan has been con
ceived; it consists of the foundation, in
North America,' of this old and celebrated
abbev, in order to diffuse the benefits of relir
ion and Christian civilization in those coun
tries, which, till now, were deprived of these
divine consolations. The barbarity of the
Jesiman vandals, who, by an act of violence
have deprived the convent of its home and.
its mission at Belliozone. has at length matur
that plan. Kev. Abbot Henry caused it to be
submitted to the approbation of the Holy See
by Ins envoy, toe Kev. ball Morel; and the
Holy Father, his heart filled with joy, gave
his consent and his apostolic benediction to
that noble and fine undertaking. The new
world of true liberty will then open its arms
and cordially receive those apostolic men of
M. Cenedtct, whom the degenerate children
of Switzerland endeavor to banish from
their scene of action, and eren deprive of
their means of existence. ..
From several parts of America, most bril
liant efforts were made to revive the celebra
ted abbey; but the prelate who governs it
contents himself for the present with sending
two members of his order, especially for the
mission, in the Indian State; and to entrust
them vt ith the care of preparing the estab
lishment of a convent of women. These
two religious monks are the Rev. Father
Ulric Christen, from Stanz, and Beda Conner
from London. They will be soon followed,
perhaps, by other members of. the mother
house, who will remember the advice of
their master.

OCT A correspondent of the New York Ob
server writes as follows on a subject which,
ought to be of natioual interest:
"To reach Gen. Taylor's grave you must
wind about through by. ways, and finally
stop before a small enclosure on the top a hill
in an open field, surrounded by a rude stone
wall; and just on the other siJe of that, wall
you will see a very plain vault, with a front
of limestone rocks, roughly hewn and an
iron door, and that you will be told is the
tomb of the once famous General Zachary
Taylor, President of the United Spates of
America. No monument has been erected to
his memory. His name has not even been
inscribed on his vault! In the center of the
small grave yard there is a monument erected
to the memory of his father, Col. Richard
Tsjlor, a . revolutionary soldier. Five years
ago Gen. Taylor was the idol of the nation!

Woman. ' ' ' j
The following extract from a speech, de
livered in the California Senate by Mr. Senile,
is touching! beautiful. The subject was a
bill authorizing women to act as sole traders.
There aro married men out of California as
well as in it, who may look in the glass and
see themselves! :
When I reflect upon the conduct of many
married men in California their faithless
ness to every vow which they make at the
altar how completely they fail in the per
formance of their duties how virtuous and
industrious, faithful and patient wi men are
imposed upon by worthless brutes of husbands,
as great tyrants at home, as drunkards and
debauchees at road, my respect tor tne sex
prompts me to do all within my power, to pro
tect her rights and secure her happiness.
I lovcwoman, I have loved her all my life,
and dying hopo to be faithful to the same nign
and inspiring sentiment. For amid all tie
varied scenes, temptations, struggles and
and hopes of existence, oue star, brighter than
all otHr?, has lighted and guided me onward;
if I ever bad any high and noble ambition, the
exciting energy has been in the approving
smile coming from the eye of woman. And I
judge her influence is thus upon others. Gen
tle in her affections, yet mighty through her
influence her medium rule is as powerful as
the ballot-box, and she only meets the, projec
tion of law agiinst those who have no law in
their habits and propensities. She has ruled
me from my boyhood with the soft and win
aing influence ot her virtues and beauty
I remember my first love; my baby affec
tions at four years of age. 1 have been in
love learly every month since save the dark
rayless days und years which succeeded the
desolate hearth and made the heart too deso
late. And never, sir, while I remember my
mother, long! ince iu her grave I remember
the night wuen 6bedied never whrle I recol
lect my sister, and the abuses that might have
been theirs never while I hold in memory
one other and her memory is all that is left
me shall I refuse to give my voice and my
mnuence, anl my vote, for any measure ne
cessary to protect and cherish the weaker and
better portion ot creation against the oppres
sion, neglect or abuse of my own sex. I hope
the bill may pass.
Singular Miesi aces. The Dundee Re
cord notices a singular marriage which took
place at Weston, Steuben county, New York
on the 21st ult. The parties are John P.
Emmerson und. Mary Jane Bennert. The
Record says: "The bridegroom is about 24
years of age, a brother of a Mrs. Hoover,
carrying on an extensive business as a tail
ores at Wefctou. He has been at sea most
the time for some ten or twelve years past,
and alter an absence of about nve years, had
just called up to see his sister. Finding that
she had in her employ bo nie sixteen young
women learning the trade, he strolled into
the room in a free anJ easy manner, and told
the girls that if there was any one who want
ed to marry him right off, to say the word.
The bride ubove named forthwith dropped
her work, and declared herself ready for the
nuptials. Within an hour from that time the
parties were spliced. A jolly wedding took
Lplace, and the next day he left his charming
b-ide for a voyage on the briny ocean."
Miss Sushi Denin, one of the most pro
mising young actresses of the time and the
country, became .Mr a. F. Woodard, of Syra
cuse, rather suddenly, the other day, at Buf
falo. It appears tin I Mr. tW., who is a
gentleman well-to do in the world, has, for a
year or more, been quite in love with Miss
Denin, and has followed her from place to
place, has written her letter after letter,
but was never received.it seems by the young
lady, dee day, it is reported, Miss Denin
had some diiagieement with her step-father
an J guardian. He gave a domestic $50 to
carry a note to Miss Denin, during her guar
dian's temporary absence.- The colored gen
leman proved a faithful Ganymede, and de
livered the missive. Miss Denin sent for
the writer she had never seen him. He ar
rived at her room door, when she met him.
"Do you . want to marry me! Are yon in
earnest!" was her salutation. "I do, and
will." "Send for a priest." The Rev. Mr.
Shelden answered the summons. Mr. War
ren and his lady and some other friends were
present, and the ceremony was performed.
The party passed through Syracuse on the
29th ult., on their way to New York, accom
panied by the mother of the bride-groom.
