A Bedced W'rf assasues ts Murder 1eer Hew&ane -The Bdºlee Eater. Her Ow heart-T.e Be rayed Hssiead to As 2ide/br MHrder. (From the aashltle Unto antd American.] In this city, many year ago. you could have seen over a humbTa one atory frame tenement the asign of a toot and shoe. Walkiog into the house you beheld a hale, hearty Ger man at his bedch. stitching or peg ging away for very dear life; while hisquick. brisk little wife busied her self with domeatic duties, and their little children played with scrape of leather, and prattled sometimes in German ad e sometimes in English. Late at night and early in the morn ing the rap of the hammer was heard. The fatlher's life seemled only an al ternation of toil and repnse-his on ly recreation silently drinking his beer before eating, or quietly amok ing his pipe after meals. Thus smoothly time glided on, adding a few gray hairs to the heads of the parents and esottly shading the sunny locksof their children. The war broke out. The father was seized with an earnest desire to serve the country of his adoption. and, though nearly ft years of age, lee volun teered. fearing himself from the embraceof bis wife and unknitting the arms of hie chlildren from about his neck, he joined his reg meut and left Nashrill to return no more until the close of the war. When peace was restored, hr hastened to the city, at.sehed to his hubc.i-alacs. the de stroyer had been there! 'lThat wile who clung to him Fo loudly net] whose heart beast as though it would break at his departure. had learnled to love another, and even tlhen, in thie verv house with those- dear chliildren. was living in open and cot-rious lewd ness with her siduct-r. To a lawyer bie relatedi tlt- sacd sto ry of his wrongs. A bill of dlivorce was filed. lhf- re the trial the wife seeCmed peniten-t. dicrmi:+ied her lover, and promised re-feirInatinic and ficutur tidelity.

"*will sirely comCe t griefe" - Missouri Demoeora The Morals of New fork "Socliety." An indignant Frenchman, stirred thereto by a stricture in the New York Times upon Parisi.n vice, do clares that the morals of New York, especially in " goed society," are much worse than those of Paris. He says: Let any foreigner pass through Broadway at night, and observe t le signs and transparencies which indi eate the entrances to the dens of vice and infamy, which everywhere abound on that street. and tell me if we have anything to boast of over Paris. Such infamous institutions would not be permitted in that city. or, at all events. such "indecent dia. play" of them wrnuld net be permit. ted. I know of nothing in which we are behind Paris in these things. i We have our public restaurants fit ted up with " private apartments for ladies and gentlemen" We have places oa. public amusement whicht are notorious rendezvous for imprnp er persons-assignation places ulder the disguisea of places of amusement -picture galleries used for the same: puposoe. p ouses o fili-repute everywhere abound, and are w"11 patronized. Hotels in which persons notoriously reside in the most shameful illicit relations-anatomical musieumb too disgusting to be visited by any de-; cent person-are kept open on our, most public street, and rendered very. attractive by a gorgeous display of gas lights,. and into which all comers are admitted. regardless of age. sex or condition. The vice of intemper ancc, too. is infiniteily greater in the ctty, and in this country. ttan in Paris or France. Every Aumerican who has b'-en abroad kniow, this to bt true.

With awe and wonder the party gazed u on the works of an extinct race. Trees, hundreds of years old were growing among the ruins, show I ing that the city had been abandoned before the days of Cortes,. and the architecture of the buildings is of an order before unknown on thib conti nent. Some few houses are in a tol erable state of preservation, and still habitable, while their walls are adorned with paintings of rare beau ty and merit. Carved doorways and images abound in every street, evinc ing in their former inhabitants a knowledge of the fine arts not found among the most civilized aboriginal races. Most remarkable of all is, snorme of this sculpture indicates among the people the existence of the Christian religion. Places of worship are said to be numerous, and upon the reverse of a statuette of a man is carefully carved that emblem of Christianity, the cross.

The Political Mstaken. Washington,. May 1 I.-The gteat veto yesterday in favor of the report of the lReconsatruction Committee re ceived the support of every Republi. can who has been classed among Johnson's friends, aid baa brought the Union party together like a band of brothers. They are once more a solid wall in favor of the principles which triumph over treason. Al ready the Copperhead batteries have been opened upon Mr. Raymond, of the New York l'imes, for yielding to the truth and to the appeals of his friends. This spectacle shows not only the intolerance of the sympathisers with treason, but the danger of even a ter:. - porary as.ociation with such. conta gious infldences. Would that An drew Johnson had long ago been similarly admnonished! He cannow see, from the manner in which the men who have been sustaining him have been controlled by the logic of the case and by the earnest invocas tiots of their constituents. the extent of the calamity be haa inflifpted upon his country, and the injury done to hiisenlf. lThe effect of the action of the House has been most salutary in the Senuate. I learned this morning that Senator Lane, of Kansas, indicated to a senator his purpose to sustain the report of the committee. The third section. in regard to which a good deal of doubt was at first cuter tained, proves to be the strongest part of thte new article. Nothing. hnwever,. strengthened it more than the minner in which it has been at tack. d by the " reconstructed " reb els. Every patriot must see that any plan that brings such men, or the r.presenta:ivee of such men, icto the Natiotal councils, is defeated f.om the start. lThe programme of the comm;ttee must not be sacrificed by its enemies. It the revels are jut mediatelv admitted, they will sim l'ly etnnbarnss I gislatiun. poison the Izimids of the peupe, and put off in tertniitably the whole subject of re constretion. Fortunately fir the co'untrv anid thiemolves, they see the I nctSszty of precisely such a gear wener by the daily proofs of their uudying treasont and savage cruelty. As I said at the tirmt, the ripurt is a nobl fighting Iplatformn, and wll add th.uz-.uiis of voteS to ien.t Geary's columnt in thIn coming election. I SpecI Cur.
