A Few Drops ok Human Blood.— Up
to the present time, we are unable to break
fast our readers on any bloody repast, fur
ther than a small entree of a fow drops shed
early yesterday morning. William Walsh,
reci ntly special patrolman detailed for duty
in the office of Administrator Lewis, failed
to understand the meaning of certain acts
of William Campbell, who deals in coal and
wood on Basin street. In fact, the two Wil
liam* were sweet on the same bit of femin
inity. so it is said, and she, unwilling to part
with cither, kept the pot boiling furiously
until Walsh could no longer bear the pres
sure. He. Friday night, tried a cane on
Campbell, and yesterday morning dosed
him with a leaden pill, tho bullet entering
the fleshy portion of his thigh, quietly pass
ing through, and gently falling to the ban
quette. A second shot sent a ball whizzing
through the hat of a disinterested person,
whs just at that time skipped off a few
pace, without being ordered to. Walsh was
was arrested, but soon afterward released
on bonds. If Mr. Campbell chooses to prose
cute. the examination will take place before
Recorder Houghton in a few days.
While riding on St. Charles street. Satur

Wesley's Power as n Preacher.
Wesley's own temperament was rather
cold, and he had probably from that cold
and calm nature, and the great self-control
and presence of mind which he possessed,
the power to awe. subdue, and thrill an
audience. While Wbitelield on many occa
sions preached dissolved iu tears, and so
moved vast numbers, the strong and de
termined will of Wesley was almost elec
trical in its influence and even frightful in
its effects on the assemblages ho preached
before. Frequently, when he had con
cluded liis discourse, the whole of his con
gregation appeared to be riveted to the
ground, and not a person moved till lie had
retired. We have perhaps the best proof
of Wesley's power over an audience, and
the extraordinary effect of his preaching, in
an incident he himself records in his jour
nal. The account of it is rather comical to
read. On one occasion a long wall, built of
loose stones, on which many of his hearers
wore seated, suddenly gave way and fell
down; it did not produce any interruption
of his discourse, or divert the attention of
his audience. "None of those who had
fallen," he observes, "screamed: and. none
being hurt, they appeared sitting at the
bottom just as they had sat at the top."
It was evidently more the manner than
the matter of his sermons that moved and
agitated his hearers. "His own tempta
tions were those of a cold temperament, and
he never considered any other. His charac
teristic word of approval was 'lively;' aud
a congregation iu a satisfactory state was a
•lively congregation,' " says the biographer.
Judging from the descriptions of the scenes
attending his preaching, we should use much
stronger language than "lively" to describe
it for" we read of people struck down as with
a sudden blow, and writhing on the ground
in convulsions and paroxysms ot the most
violent and distressing kind; and only \\ es
ley himself, with the same eloquence which
caused these manifest itions of awful excite
ment. could soothe and quiet the victims ot
the attacks. _____
Virginia papers mention the recent death
ol' mTss Cornelia Jefferson Randolph, a
<rrauddaughter ol' Thomas Jefferson, at the
age of seventy-three. She was the fourth
ot the Randolph family who have died
within a few weeks. In this connection it
is recorded that the late Governor Ran
dolph and his wife Martha, daughter of
Thomas Jefferson, reared eleven children,
six daughters anil five sons, all of whom
lived to a mature age. James. Lewis, Dr.
Benjamin Franklin, late a Virginia State
Senator; George Washington. Secretary id
War in the Southern Confederacy; Mrs.
Bankhead and Cornelia are deceased: one
son Colonel Thomas Jefferson, now in his
seventy-ninth year; Mrs. Coolidge, ot Bos
ton: Mrs. N. 1'. Trist anil Miss Mary, of
Alexandria, anu Mrs. Meikleham, formerly
of New York, hut now of Virginia, are still
living; an instance of remarkable longevity

The moustache has hitherto recoiled
homage from inventors# in the shape ot
spoons and cups so made as to transfer
liuuids to the mouth without the soiling ot
the hairy labial ornament. This has lately
been outdone, however, by a device brought
out in England, and which required the
ireniusof two inventors to develop and
patent it. It is described as a moustache
supporter, anil consists, essentially, ot a
comb curved or bent into the term ot the
upper lip, anil a narrow plate connected to
the back or unperforated part ol the comb,
and situated at right angles to the comb.
When the comb is placed under the mous
tache and pressed upward, it attaches itselt
to the moustache, the narrow plate being
situated in a horizontal plane, and consti
tuting a small screen or guard, on which
the moustache is supported in the required
position.

Hibernian Association Anniversary.
The various Hibernian Benevolent and
Mutual Aid Associations of New Orleans,
with those invited to assist iu the celebra
tion of their second anniversary, will assem
ble on Canal street, at half-past nine
o'clock, on the morning of the seventeenth
instant, and inarch in procession through
tho principal streets of the city.
The route of the procession, the names of
the Grand Marshal and Aids, and other
details, may be- found in the advertisement
which appears in another part of this paper.
We may remark that no celebrations arc
conducted with more propriety anil attract
more attention than the processions of the
Irish associations of New Orleans. They
leave nothing undone that can give credit
to their nationality, anil no expense is
spared iu preparations required to uiakt
a grand atnl pleasing demonstration.
Thus will St. Patrick's Day bo celebrated
by a portion of our citizens of Irish
descent. .
The Horrors of Shipbonrd.
The continuation of tho examination in
the case of Captain Grindle, of the ship Old
Colony, reveals a shocking story of bar
barity. < >uo of the victims yesterday testi
fied in his own behalf that he was hauled
up into the rigging, and then let down sud
denly on deck, badly injuring him; lie was
bound, chained and gagged, and kicked in
tlie face by the captain, having two of bis
back teeth broken out; lie was lashed to the
anchor, which was hanging over tho bow of
the vessel, and kept there, with the sea
breaking over him, for three hours; lie was
confined, being hound anil chained, in a
small room, during fifteen days, being kept
on a pound of biscuit a day, anil having
nothing to drink but water: be was brought
on deck, dressed in a fantastical manner,
and made by the captain to drill like a sol
dier tor the captain's amusement.
His testimony was corroborated by the
cook, aud the 'surgeon who attended him
upon his arrival here testified to his deplor
able condition. If this is the kind of men
who command ships, we are not surprised
at the great difficulty experienced in secur
ing crews.— Seir York Stnr.
Spring Goods. —Such of our lady readers
as would like to get bargains iu spring dress

of the latest things out in the way of ladies'
wear, corsets, hosiery, ribbons, laces, etc.
This is an opportunity which should not he

Grenadines, Japanese Niles and Lin

goods, which they are just opening, at very
moderate prices indeed. We have never

ese silks and grenadines, and the linens are

to go and see them.
"Naekitocli Bluff" is reported to he the

German rogues are not the dullest of
rogues. Recently a youth, seemingly a bak
er's apprentice, presented at the counter of
a bank in Vienna, a slip which was to all
appearances the ticket which had drawn
the first prize ($67,500) iu the Brunswick
lottery. The officers of the bank held a con
sultation. and sunt the ticket to the princi
pal luanager of the lottery; the presenter,
all tins time, keeping up the appearance of
the coolest unconcern, even inviting one of
the hank clerks out to lunch witli him while
waiting the return of the messenger. The
ticket was certified by the manager, and the
uiouev was paid to the supposititious baker's
bov. He departed-forthwith, bearing his
treasure; forty-eight hours later it avus as
certained that the ticket was a counterfeit;
an exact fac simile of a genuine one which
had been cashed only a few hours before at
Darmstadt. How the impostor obtained
cognizance of this ticket can not yet he
known, as he is among the missing.
It is related of a family in Dorchester,
Massachusetts, that every dark-eyed mem
ber of it. for tho past fifty years, has be
come blind at the age of twenty to twenty
five years. Those with blue eyes escape
the terrible affliction. The local gossips
tell a romantic story, how. some sixty years
ago, a beautiful black-eyeil girl, reduced by
blindness to beggary, was led astray by
two Jjoys of this family, and left by them
iu a swamp, and who, when she found her
self deserted among the tangled under
brush, turned her prayer, that they would
extricate her, into a dying curse, praying
that their children, for seven generations,
might be lis helpless as she was.
Robert Toombs was one of the speakers
at a firemen's celebration ot \\ asliiugton s
