II The Marseillaise was inspired by genius, i patriotism, youth, beauty and champaigne. j llouget de Lisle was an officer of the garri- j son at Strasburg, and a native of Mount ' Jura. He was an unknown )0t and com-! poser. He had a pea;int friend, named i Dietriek. whose wife and daughter were the ; only critics and admirers of tiie soldier po et's song. One night he was at supper with his friend's family, and they had only I coarse bread and slices of ham. Dietriek j looking sorrowfully at De-Lisle, said : ; " Plenty is not our feast, but we have j the courage of a soldier's heart: I have j still one lx.ttle left in the cellar hring it. j my daughter, aud let ns driuk to liberty i and our country !" The young girl brought - the bottle : it I was soon exhausted, and PeLisIe went sta-1 geriug to bed; he could not sleep for the cold, tut his heart was warm and full of the beating of genius and patriotism. He took a small c-liricord and tried to compose a song; sometimes the words were first sometimes the air. Directly he fell asleep over the instrument, and waking at daylight, wrote down what he had conceived in the delerium of the night. Then he waked the family, and sang his pro.Jui.nion ; at first, the women turned pale, and then wept, then burst in a cry ot enthusiasm. It was the song of the nation anJot terror, t Two months afterwards, Dietriek went i t) the scaffold, listening to the self same j music, composed under his own rof, and j under the inspirations of the last bottle of j wino. The people sang it everywhere ; it j flew from city to city, to every public or chestra. Marseille adopted the song at the opening and cl ?e f its cluls hence the name, "Hymn of the Marseillaise;" tLen it sd all over Trar.ee. They sung it in their houses, in public assemblies, and in the stormy strt-et convocation. DeLisle's mother, hearing it, said to her son, " What is this revolutionary hymn, sung by bri-gand-s, with which your name is mingled ?"' DviJsle heard it, and shuddered as it soun-d.-d through the streets of 1'aris, rung from the Alpine passes, while L a royalist, fled fr ni tho infuriated people, frenzied by his own word-i. I'rance was a great n'npithea tre of anarchy and bhd, and 1'elJsIe's Kng was the battle cry. There is no national air that will com pare with the Marseillase in sublimity and power; it embraces the soft cadences full of the peasant's home, and the stormy clan gor of silver and Steele when the empire is overthrown ; it endears the memory of the vine dresser's cottage, and makes the Frenchman, in his exile, cry " La l.ei'e I'rance!" forgetful of the torch and sword, and guillotine, which have made his coun try a spectre of blood in the eyes of ra tions. Nor can the fort iguers listen to it, sung by a company f exile, or executed by a band of musicians, without fueling that it is the approach of battle and war. Something too Fastiijiois. A very worthy gentleman at Kouen is at present receiving a fortune which came to him with the drawing of a cork, in the following cu rious manner. Obliged by the state of bis health, last summer, to change the air, he went to the sea shore at Villers-surmcr, near Trouville, and walking on the beach, he noticed that a lad, who also promenading there with his father, had found a sealed little among the sea-weed. The father bade his child to "throw down the dirty thing, aad not be soiling his finsers;" upon which the invalid picked up the castaway bottle and took it with him to his lodgings. The cork drawn, tho bottle was found to contain a written document, properly sign ed, and dated on board a vessel which had sprung aleak and was about to sink. It ran thus : " About to perish, I commend my soul to God. I hereby constitute the tinder f this will, enclosed in a bottle, my s.ul h-ir. My fortune, laboriously acquired, amount to near three hundred and lifty thousand francs and the small house in which 1 have resided at Valparaiso. This tenement I wish converted into a chapel, and that a mass may be there said once a month f-r the repose of my soul. The fortune will be fiund deposited with M , notary, f of Paris, to whom, from time to time, it has been transmitted. Pray forme! Sign-' cd .M Soiled fingers should not always be avoided. ! Attempted Scicide on the Steps of of the Union Clcb House. On Monday ; night, between 10 and 11 o'clock, a gentle-' man residing in Fifth avenue, observed a young lady, dressed in mourning and of re- spectable appearance, leaning ujwn the rail-! ing of the Union Club House, on the corner of Twenty-first street and Fifth avenue, ap parently ill. Upon questioning her, she confessed that she ha 1 taken laudnum for the purpose of self-destruction, having been deserted by her husband and lost her young child, and that she had now no object in life. She appeared very much distressed in mind and btdy, aud produced the vial a two ounce vial which she had emptied of its contents. She stated that owing to the interference of her husband's friend, he had deserted her last Wednesday, ."ih ; March, since which time she had eaten no f. M id, and sought relief from her misery only in death. She was immediately carried to a druggist's store, and a powerful emetic administered, which relieved the stomach of a quantity ot fluid, but not one particle of food ! The hysician in attendance sta ted that she had not eaten certainly in four days. Oue of the gentlemen present went for her husband, a last youth of the fancy ; order, who came in with an air of noncha!-; ance. ami asked her coolly what was the matter. He also stated that her sister had told him that day that his wife had eaten nothing since he left her. After the dan ger from the poison was passed, the two were left together. Her only desire in living is to possess the affections of her hus band, who is evidently unworthy of her love, a he himself admitted she had done nothing to forfeit it. At his re.pjest. and for the sake of his wife, their names are . withheld from publication. Kxprtss. An Aged Warriok. Old Tarmahhah, ; (One-Kye) the well-known Indian chief and I warrior, was in AYabashaw, Miunesota, last j week. He is supposed to have been born about the year 17.X), according to the H a bashaw Herald, which would make him , 104 years of age. He was a chief.saysthat paper.of one of lied Viug's b itels of Sioux and in the war cf 1SPJ fought nobly and callantly with the Americans against the Uritish. He was al. on the side of the American in the Mack Hawk war, and has rendered the whites valuable service at other times. The Herald gives a copy of the commission given him by tlov. Clark. of Missouri, in 1S1V O.d Tarmahhah takes great priue in showing this Commis sion, and also demauds a vitsh yep tlr a s ght cf it. The marks of extreme old age are visible in his countenance. He is ebi! dish and imbecile, and is but a wreck of the once mighty warrior who led his braves to battle and to victory. "Pitt the Sorrows," Ac.

An incident occurred, on tie Little ."I ami Railroad yesterday morning. The fact are about these : A lady, somewhat ! cd that period of life which the v.r!d wo'd term "young" although she might u :::'. r with them was on ber way t tLi- city, for purposes connected with active iuda-try. At a jjint on the road, a traveler took the traiu, who happened to enter the ear in which the young lady occuj-ied a seat. After walking up and down between the seats the gentleman found no unoccupied seat, excep t the one-half of that upon which the lady had deposited her precious self ar. I crinoline the latter very modestly expan sive. Making a virtue of necessity a "stand te" berth or a little self-assurance he modestly inquired if the lady had a fellow-traveler, and took a s-st. As the train flew a!oi g with express spaced the stranger entered into a czy con versation, and mutual explanations. Th" gentleman was pleased, ard the lady cer tainly d:d not pout. After ..th..r subj ets had been discussed, and worn thread-bare, the lady made inquiries as to the p rice of a sewing machine, and where such au article could be purchased in this city. The gen tleman ventured the opinion that she had "better secure a husband first." This op-en-ed the way for another branch of conversa tion, and the brokeu field was indu-triouly cultivated. Ry the time the train arrived at the d p ot iu this city, the gentleman had propos ed and been accepted, (although the lady aftci wards declared she regarded it a a good joke.) The p-arty separated : the gen tleman, ail in pood earnest, started for a li cense, and the lady made her way to a boarding house on Broadway, alje Third, for a dinner. At two o'clock the gentle man returned with a license and a Justice, to the great astonishment of the fair one, and after a few tears and half-remonstrative expression, she submitted with becoming modesty, and the Squire performed tho lit tle ceremony in a twinkling. Last evening the happy con pin departed for Louisville, f ti rout'' for New Orleans and California. If this is not a fast country, a search war rant would not succeed in fiuding oiif.

Mr. Leonard Vv Jer.'V.i" of New York has been bargaining for the purchase of the yacht America, the conqueror of the Inhi bition at Loudon in lol. Thi yacht wa Imught from Mr. Stephen of I IoUilcn, her builder, by Lord De Bhquieie, who n, her to Lord To'.np.Iotowii, who in turn sold her to the Me-rs. Priehard, ship-builders at North Fleet.on the Thames, two miles above Iravessend. Lord Tempdetown sunk the yacht by accident near the yard of the Meers. Pritchard, and it was only after she had lain in that condition for some time that she was lought by the...' gentlem-Mi. It is probable that the sum paid for her wa iusignitleant, but Lord Tempietown ha asked for and obtained the first promise fr purchase after she has again bv.-n j.ut in repair. Mr. Jerome, who is spending the Winter in Paris, lately visited the yard of the Metsr. Pritchard, in order to in.-peet the boat, and he found her on the stock, in the workmen' hands, undergoing ceiup-lete repair from t. p to b.tom. More than half the timbers of her k-l were found to b rotten, and are Icing replaced; but tle v are restoring her exactly up- n th original mode! not a line of her bvl i- to be changed. Wh- n tini.-hed and rigged, she is to stand preci-ely a she did the di. of her great race. If L-.rd I'cmpletown d-jt s not insist up-on the repureha-e of the boar, and it is thought he will not, the Mes.-rs Pritc hard will accept the terms off red r v Mr. Jerome.

A singular arT.ir is said to have occurred in Pcn-aeola a few diy ago Mis Susan , daughter of one of the most distinguished jurists and politician of 1'loriJ.i, entertained a most violent pas-ion for Mr. ., Major ..f Per.sacol.a. who had paid lc-r s-me attentions previous to hi marriage with another laJy. She took no great pain to conceal from Mr. r. the na ture of her feeling, and had on s-.-veral oc casions conducted herself i:i rather an ex travagant and startling manner, but he probably sup posed nothing seriou would come of it. Oae day recently, however, she went to his house and called for Mr i., and, when that laiy came to the dr, drew a pistol, ready cockled, from the f -lis of her dre-s. and fired it her rivpl.

Before the entrance to the tent the . proprietor was l-oa.-ting of the innumerable wonders to be seen for a shilling, to a con-! iderable crowd. While in the midst of a j speech overflowing with large words, he j was somewhat summarily interrupted by ! the following examination from a man near him. who had a boy with him : 'I'll bet you a 'five' that you cannot let me see that lion . 'Done,' said the showman eagerly. 'Put up our money.' The man placed a five-dollar bill in hands of a by-.-fsnder, and the showman counting o:it the change, did tho sune.

A gentlrinau from Indiana, named Fox, came to this city a few day ago for the pur pose of negotiating for the sale if a large quantity of Western school lands Si on after he was waited ujon by a man named H'rris, doing busine.-s at No. Nas.m street, with whom he had a p revious slight acquaintance, and who proposed t- ex change a hundred g.

Repentance ami Remoksi: ketween a Father am hi I ai outers A day r two since, Stephen J. Mcdroarty, Esq., eoiin-il of ,K.hn Kain, now in prisou awaiting a new trial for kil ling Singleton, the seducer f his daugh ters, succeeded in ctfeet ing a reconciliation between the father and his two girls, also in jail charged with larceny to whom their parent had not sp .ken since the domestic, tragedy, more than two years ago. By the kindness cf the jailor the daugh ters were allowed to visit their father in his cell, when a most affecting interview t.n.k place; the girls falling ou his neck and: weep.ing like children, when from the eyes of the stern, strong man who had slain the . vile destroyer of his child's honor, and had ' known her to fall step by step to degrada tion and despair, the great tears ran like rain the agony of a heart wrung by uiiii.' tion and agonized by terrible suffering to a i woman's tenderness. For come minutes no one of that trio spoke. S.bs choked their utterance, and ' the memory of the fearful past awed them ; into silence. Their sorrow melted them to j sympathy, and love and grief, remorse and ! repentance filled their hearts to bursting. . In that moment that moment they were pu-! rifled ; in that hour their errors were blotted ; out by the tears of deepest contrition, and : atonement made to Nature and themselves. At last one of the girls, the dishonored and avenged, fell at her father's feet, ami j said, with still strengthening eye : "O, father, dearest fa' her, can yu for give me .'" "Yes, yes, my child, with all my heart," was the solemn and impres-ive answer, "a I hop' to be forgiven'."' Then both bis daughters knelt and re eeived his blessing, and a moment afu-r be was by their side ottering up. a prayer f..r strength to resist temptation and avoid evil in the future. The father embrae. d th. m tenderly again and again, and assured ti.eiu of his entire forgiveness, while they r-.m-ised amendment and reform, and icxun-d to seek comfort and suppoit iu the faith ; their parent recently had sought. The scene as witnessed was extremely p athetic, and such as our plain p-encil can-: not paint. Several who witnessed the roc-, onciliation were, in spite of themselves, melted to tears, and left the cell with a bet ter opinion of that human nature which, however it may err, is always held by a golden though invisible thread to its rative heaven.

We met Judge L , the other day, at the American House, in St. Johns, who related to us the particulars of an incident which will do to put in print. The Judge left his home last Tuesday morning, and took the cars at Ionia for St. Johns As he entered the cars ho observed an unusual cumber of Irishmen "aboard," but did not at first comprehend the reason.

It took p.laee at Wilmington, Delaware, on the i!Jd March. The editor says : " According to the Call, the first Mission of the Convention commenced in tho City Hall, at ten A. M. Rev. Nicholas Patter son, of Wilmington, Yiee President of the National Compensated Emancipation Soei ty, for Deleaware, was called to the chair, and Dr. Bulloch was appointed Secretary." The r solutions adop ted are long and ar gumentative, but, in substance, they de clare that Slavery is a great moral and so cial evil ; that the North as well ai the South is responsible for its existence ; and that the proceeds of the public lands khould c appropriated, as suggested by Rufus King and approved by Mr. Webster, to the extinction of the evil, by compensating the owners of tlaves. The cigth rcsoulution declares : " That the fraternal and benevolent dis positions which this act of brotherly copart nership would inspire and diffuse through out the entire nation, wo il l e of vast and vital importance to the shut s themselves, both before and aftrr their emancipation, leading to those ameliorations -f their con ditions, which would greatly enhance their moral elevation and bap-pint Wisconsin Another Repeelican Ti.it mph 1 It now a ears that the elec tion f,r Justice of the Sup.rcmo Court iu Wisconsin, has resulted in the choice of By ron Paine, the Republican nominee, by a majority of over ."i.'MM.

Jour. "Sinking the Slavery Agitation." We bad occasion lately to exp ress the opin ion, which we honestly entertain, that "sinking the Slavery agitation North and South' was not only an impoHMhi!ity, but that it was a grave question for wise patri ism, whether 'sinking' was desirable. " Peace retireon the sections of the Un ion is indeed the greatest good within the reach of man, but when we say peace, we do net mean a 'sinking' or cassation of hos tilities, but p.. rmanerit peace ; not a tmre, during which each party shall increase the means of warfare, and after a time renew hostilities with greater zeal and more dead ly fffeet.
