Opening of Parliament Financial Condition of the Country The Wlitve Question Speech o( the Kmprror. Rio Janeiro, May 12. Parliament opened on the 6th lntst., with the usual pomp and cere mony. At one o'clock in the afternoon his Ma jesty took his seat, and after bowing to tho Senators and Deputies, read the following ad dress to the representatives of the nation: With a feeling of the most lively pleasure at find ing myself surrounded by the national representa tion, I render thanks to the All-Powerful, and I con gratulate myself and you on the happy and glorious termination of the war we have sustained during live years, always with honor to our arms, against the ex-President of the republic of Paraguay. The well-grounded hopes which I manifested at the opening ol the last legislative session have neen realized, of seeing our valiant soldiers led to a dual victory under the command of my much-loved and valued son-in-law, Army Marshal the Cointe d'Eu. The trust which I reposed In the Brazilian llrmness and patriotism has been amply justified, and history will bear witness in all time that the present generation snowed Itself constant and un Hhaken In the unanimous Intent to avenge tne honor of Brazil. The rejoicing of the whole population of the empire over the glorious events which have placed an end to sacrifices so noble, the enthusiasm with which it has shown its gratitude to the volun teers, the national guard, the army and the navy, are Its due homage to heroism and the merited re ward of their proved devotion to the national cause. The valuable and legal co-operation of our brave allies co-operated greatly to the results obtained lu the long, stubborn struggle in which we were engaged ugust and Most Worthy Representatives of the Option: If Brazil laments the loss or many of her gallant children there remains to her the memory or .ucir deeds, illustrious examples or clvlsm and bravery. The Government is engaged in realizing with the republic or Paraguay, in accordance with the treaty of alliance of May 1, 1SG5, and the proto cols flnm xed to It, the necessary agreements for assuring the permanence and advantages of peace. Tue puoiic tranquillity continues unaltered. We maintain relations of the most perfect friendship with all rations. The progressive Increase of the pjbllc revenues, an evident proot of the viilue of the productive powers of Brazil, enables the Government to present to you a budget In which the expenditures do not ex eend the ordinary receipts of the treasury. The moral and material development of the empire depends essentially on the diii'usion of education through all tho classes of society, on facilities of communication, and on giving the aid of free h bor to our agriculture, our principal fountain of wealth. 1 trust that you will give careful atten tion to these matters and also to electoral reform, to the improvement of the administration of Justl !e, mi the municipal orgaul.atlon and that or the na tional guard, to the providing of means to carry into ertect the census of the whole empire, to the law of recruiting, and to the military penal and process code. August and Most Worthy Representatives of the Nation: If your devoted and patriotic coadju- vancy with the Government supplied it with the ex traordinary means exacted by the war. vour intelli gence and love of your country will give a vigorous impulse to all the internal Improvements promised us by tne new era or peace. The session Is opened. Yesterday the Minister of Flnanee submitted his report, from which it appears that the total deficit of revenues from the outbreak of the war with Paraguay to the present time aggregates $385 330,149. The revenue meanwhile has sleadilv increased from $(54,770,843 in 1806 to $84,1)37,127 in 1808 and $90,000,000 the. present Year. 1 he receipts for tho years 1870-1 he estl mates at $04,000,000 and those of 1871-2 at the same figures, with an estimated expenditure of 10,U00,000 less eacu year, mis surplus will. of course, be applied to the reduction of the national debt. The case of the sun wanting to get out of the Ajuda convent is going on, and the first exami nation tinder the ecclesiastical process has taken place. The nun is said to have been forced by her friends to take the veil. It would seem by decrees issued at various times that tne general doctrine of the Government has been that it is competent to allow monks and nuns to return to secular life without regard to the ecclesiasti cal power, and that keeping nuns or monks In convents against their free will is contrary to the spirit oi me constitution. The town deluge of deputations to the Comte d'Eu continues, and that from the coun try is beginning to come. The Jockey Club have given him a handsome white horse and a set of void-mounted harness, and the schools hare begun to drop in upon him with the obvious Intent of advertising them well. The admirers of Caxlas are about to present him with the jewelled Grand Cross of the Order of Peter the First, and those of Ozorlo are preparing great doings for the 24th of May, the anniver sary of the great battle of 1806, in which it is tatd tne Pavaeuavans lost VJ.vw men. Bank bills on London have dropped to 23,'d. to the milrels, and sovereigns have risen to iui.ouu. THE AGE OF LIGHTNING. A Ttlrsraph Cable Laid Between Tennessee ana Amanitas Bucceealul Uucrallon. The Memphis Avalanc he of the 8th Inst, sais: The new cable of the Western Union line was suc cessfully dropped into the bottom of the Mississippi river yesterday, by Mr. I C. Baker, Superintendent of the Arkansas line. This cable weighed seven tons, and cost over five thousand dollars. Forty live hundred feet of cable were used yesterday m connecting Tennessee and Arkansas. The new cable was three Independent wires, well insulated, and the whole is covered with twisted wire, making the cable nearly two luches in dumeter. Mr. Baker had the cable coiled within an immense drum, to which wan attached the neces sary breaking apparatus for the purpose of checking toe velocity while paying out. The machinery was placed upon a llatooat, and with a steam tug and tow boat Little Alps, the boats steamed down the river to a point on the Arkansas shore opposite Port Pickering. I'pon making fast one end or the cable to Arkansas, at a o'clock P. M.. the paying out commenced, and the cable was successfully laid iu thirty minute. The strain ou the drum when tha boats arrived at the point where the water was deepest was very great, out the breaking gear was equal to the emergency and regulated the paying out satisfactorily to all parties. The new cable will Le connected with the lines to-day, and its utility aiid power properly tested. MOKE LIGHTNING.

Last Tuesday, the 7th Inst., will remain a memorable day to ail of us, as the day of the ter rible thunder storm. On Wednesday evening an other electric storm visited us, but it seemed leas violent, and the lightning less vivid ; but the electric fluid on that evening did Its full share of execution, and played one of the strangest pranks we have been caned on to record. Dr. G. W. Spencer, the well-known dentist in our city, started at about It o'clock with his wife, from a rehearsal of the cantata rsociety wnicu with, spen cer hail been attending. Tne doctor aDi nis iaay were In a buck wagon, drawn by a pair of valuable bosses owned by the gentleman. Shortly after pass- iiifr Notio. on the wav to incir norae in uaKiauu, ine storm broke furiously, and the doctor drove at top sneed.

The lightning entered the window of the bath room, tore a large hole in the bottom or the bath tub, and passed down through the floor without doing further damage, except to tear up the flooring to some extent. It is thought that the. fluid was attracted to the window by the metal plug of the tub, lying on the window sill. AMERICAN BISHOPS IN ROME. Bishop Lynch on the ConnclP-IIU Address in ine unaricston tiiunearai. The Roman Catholic Bishorj ULharleston, S. C, preached at the CatheflL -.that city last Sunday for the first time sine" return from Rome. He spoke at length about the tJ-.cumeni- cal Council, declaring that not one thing in a hundred said by the newspapers was true, lie added: "There has been discussion In that council at which 1 have had the happiness to have been pre sent for live months There was discussion by men qua lined to discuss the issues presented, by men coming irom every part or tne world, lined witn an the knowledge and experience of the world. They are chosen men cnosen because in their studies und in their ministry they have become possessed of those abilities which redound to the benefit or their episcopacy men who have been in the1 ministry ten, twenty, thirty, and some or them over fifty years, and who bring a life-long experience. What Is there of religion that they cannot rreely discuss? They come witn pure ana earnest nearts. Tney come in the rear or God to speak or Christ, of God, and to speak their conscientious convictions, to consult with their brethren, to compare, and in earnest prayer and purpose come to that result, to those words which they shall pronounce, which It Is pleas ing to tne iioiv unost mat tney snail utter and de fine. And when the decision is given, all will re ceive and adhere to it, because all know and believe that the Church Is the work or God that the Uuly Ghost has been promised to the Church that the spirit or truth abides in the Church, and that we will receive the clear and unmistakable declaration or the faith which was in the possession or the Church from the beginning. "It has been my glory, my pride, to have been privileged to be present. Elsewhere aud at home I have believed in the unity aud catholicity or the Church. But wheti I saw that assembly, the sove reign Pontiir himself, the cardinals and aged patri archs from the churches of the Kast, in their bright robes and in long array ; when 1 saw those lines of prelates, archbishops, bishops, and mitred abbots, extending down that vast transept or St. Peter's; when the sovereign Pontiir himself arose and mude the declaration of his faith, followed by the aged cardinals and the long lines of archbishops and bishops as they came ud and placed their hands on the Holy Gospel and said, 'I so believe,' every one saying the same words of faith, the same promise of duty to the Church and the cause ot God, and the admission made in the various languages of the East, then, Indeed, I felt more than ever the unity, the cataollcity of the Church. From China to California, rrom Lapland to the Cape or Good Hope, from Hudson's Buy to Chill, from every quarter, there was beard one faith, one baptism, one church of Christ there assembled in her majesty, and there about to declare the faith of Christ to the world." LOVE AND STAMPS. An I'nromantle iindln of an Affair of the Heart. St. Louis has been considerably excited In the past few days on account of the sudden disappear- ance or a yontnrui coupie. Tne cause or tne sudden flitting, as told by gossips, Is as follows : The young man had for some time past been very devoted to the young lady, and had succeeded In winning her affections. Her father, however, objected to the marriage of the parties, and an elopement was de termined upon. About tne time appointed ror tne nignt. tne young man, through some misconduct, lost his situation in the estauitsument wnere ne worked, itecoguizing the fact that money was necessary to a successful elopement, he told the young lady that he had been ottered a lucrative position in umcago, ana mat ne bad accepted It, and that, as soon as he had earned a little money he would send for her aud they would be married, ue expressed great serrow at tne cruel fate which compelled him to leave his loved one behind, and said that if he could by any means raise money enough to take them to Chicago, he would not leave without her. The young lady signified her willingness to go, and gave mm no. an me money sue nau, ana toia mm to purchase the necessary tickets, and she would accompany mm. it :was agreeu mat tney wouia reave the next oay, ana ne ieit to make me neces sary arrangements. The sudden accumulation of so much wealth, however, turned his brain, and, after counting it several times, he re marked to a friend that It was too much money to spend upon one woman, and that he was growing to see life with it, and one day last week he disappeared. When the young lady learned of the shabby trick he had put upon her, she very naturally was indignant, and said mat she would follow Dim up aud compel him to disgorge his 111- gotten gains. A gentleman friend volunteered to assist in the search, and the two left for Cincinnati, where it was supposed the faithless lover had gone. The lady evidently means busluess, aud. If she suc ceeds lu finding the object of her search, there is a probability mat a nrst-ciass tragedy will be enacted. PANIC IN 'A PUBLIC HALL. 900 Terror Mtrlckea People Make a Ituah for I lie Muur-rrianiiui xcuneii. About five hundred people, says the Louisville Journal of Wednesday, attended the coucert of Pro fessor Wat. Lurton. at Masonic Temple, last even lug. The affair was Indeed a pleasant one, and everythicg passed off quietly until aijout twenty minutes after ten, when there occurred a scene ot excitement that nevT can be forgotten by any who chanced to witness It, A little girl, named Llna Parkhurst. who was silting in the audience with her parents, about midway between the entrance and stage, was complaining of feeling faint all during the early part of the evening, and, at the time above mentioned, unable longer to resist the In clluation to faint, and realizing her situation, she arose from her seat and started for the door, but when only about two steps rrom the door sue fen Immediately alter she struck the floor Mr. William Lindsay picked her up and carried her out for resto ration ; but In the meanwhile the audience became excited, and a terrible scene of confusion ensued. The young ladles upon the stage were in a semi circle, crowning the Queen, aud they, too, were stricken with panic. Everybody started lor the door, men, women, and children screaming and rushing pell-mell, without ,uce thinking of the terrible consequences that arise frequently from such liable on such occasions. The young ladles and little girls ou the stage leti u lookir for a soft place to leap ou tho floor, that they too might escape through the front entrance and save themselves thereby. Alter tho excitement had reached the highest point, a large. robust gentleman in the audience, with great pre sence oif mind, arose and, In stentorian tones, an nounced that there was no danger, and not even a cause for the excitement. This seemed to lessen the desire of the people to get out. and Professor Lurton, on the stage, by his cool, calm actions, pre vented the young ladies from leaving the stage, and In a few moments everything was quiet, although a large number or nervous people were compelled to retire to recover from the excitement. DICKENS. How Lnst Kvenlna's Prnyer .fleeting wo, pent at t'lvmoutii 'Uhurrn. The New York Sun of this morning says: Last night was tl.e weekly prayer meeting of Ply. mouth C hurch. There was a large audience. Mrs. btowewas among the auditors. Mr. Beecher in vited any one to speak or ask any question. A member alluded to the death of Mr. Dickens, the news of which had just been received. Mr. Beecher took occasion to make some remarks on the life and character of Mr. Dickens. He said: The ideath of Charles Dickens has been referred to, and I suppose will produce more nearly the feel ing or personal loss tnan mat oi any one mat naa died since Walter Scott. Ho Is a housenold man. He was a manor the most genial sympathies, the most humane feelings, of any man that 19 a niter in our day. lie took hold of what may be called the great middle class of feelings in the human mind. Whether he was personally and cx- ferimentally a Christian man God knows, I don't, know, indeed, very little about his personal pri vate lire, 'l nere is one ciass or men wnom we be lieve to be Christians, They are producers of spiritual Influences. We have no doubt about them. There Is another class that we are as positive have pro duced malign influence. And there is a great ciass between these, and It is always difficult to say whether they are a little nearer one side or the other. Mr. Dickens did not always work In the highest spi ritual element. That was not the work given him. But he was not, on the other hand, a producer of morbid feeling. He did not generate sellishness or pride, and certainly n j tendencies towards licen tiousness or dissipation, ah ms writings brace up manhood in truth and honor, and purity and virtue. Throughout they are noble. There may be exagge rations In caricature, but the generic influence or his writing Is to make manhood purer and liner, aud to make tne intercourse or men witn their reiiow men more genial and more human; to make the household purer and finer and sweeter. There can be no question that this is the general tendency of his writings. I do not believe that there is to be a line found which either by design or in fact will pro duce licentiousness or laxity. There can be no question that ho has been a bene factor to his race, although he has not worked in the highest sphere In the spiritual element. And when the ameliorations In the procedure or society are traced back to their Bources, it will bo found thut God raised him up, and employed him in no mean degree to produce reformation and elevation in the middle elements oi mini an weirare. we can not but be grateful for the fact that he was raised up in a lower sphere to do a great deal ot needed work. lie did it wen ana passed on tne stage, lie has gone at the full of life. One moment til the full enjoy ment of his faculties, the next moment gone. Years must have let down tne tone or his mind and his work. He has died at the right time for himself and for the world. Mr. Beecher said he didn t believe in the petition or the Episcopal PrayercBook, "Deliver us rrom sudden death." lie still clung to that heresy. He should never pray that God would deliver him rrom sudden death. He did not want to be like an old harness tied up with tow-string aud always break ing, and always up ror repairs, and always good ror nothing, lie died at tue rigut time. For one he thanked God tor the lire and work of Charles Dick ens, although he did not regard him as of the highest. But it is not necessary that a ran a should work at me nignest in oruer to be reckoned among the noblest and best of men. An appropriate and impressive hymn was then sung, and the congrega tion dismissed. Ills Separation from hi Vlfe-IIN Letter upon me Miioiect. Early In life just after the publication of "Pick wick" Mr. Dickens married the daughter of Mr. George Hogarth, the author and critic. He sepa rated rrom her in 1858, and as the event called forth a great deal or ill-natured comment, the following letter was written lor tne purpose or being shown to the public: My Dkar : Mrs. Dickons and I have lived unhappily together for many years. Hardly any ono who has known us intimately cun tail to have known t hat we are, in all ro spects of character and temperament, wonderfully uu- buited to each otlior. i suppose that no two people, not vicious in themselves, ever were joined together, wiio bad greater ditiiculty in understanding one another, or who uaa less in common. An attacuea woman servant (more friend to both of us than a servant), who lived with us sixteen years, and is now married, and who was, and still is, in jvirs. inekeiiB- connuence ana mine, wno naa tne closest familiar experience of thiB unhuppiness in London, year after year, mouth alter month, week after week, day alter uvy, win uear teniiiuony to tuis. nothing has, on many occasions, stooa Between us ana a separation, but Mrs. Dickens' sister, (ieorgine Hogarth. Irom the age of fifteen she has devoted herself to our house and children. Liho has been their playmate, nurse, instructress, friend, protectress, adviser, and companion. In the manly consideration towards Mrs. Dickens which I owe to my wife. 1 will merely remark of her that the pecu liarity oi tier ciiaracter lias thrown all the careoi tue children on someone else. I do not kaow I cannot by any stretch of fancy imagine what would have become of thrm but for this aunt who has grown up with them, to whom they are devoted, and who has saoriticed the best part ot her youth and life to them, bhe bas remonstrated, reasoned, suffered, and toiled. and come again to nrevont a ssnaration between Mrs. Dickens and ma. Mrs. Dickens has olten expressed to her her sense of ber affectionate care and devotion in the house never more strongly than in the last twolva months, hot some years oast Mrs. Dickens has been in the babit of representing to ma tliat it would be better lor ber to go away and live apart : that her always increasing estrange ment niace a mental disorder under wnion sue sometimes labors ; more, that she felt herself unfit for the life she had to lead as my wife, and tuat she would be far better away. I have uniformly replied that she must bear our misfor tune and tight the tight out to the end ; that tho children were the first consideration, and that I faared they must bum ns together in appearance." At length, within these three weeks, it was suggested tome by r orator, that even for their sakes. it would surely be better to reconstruct and rearrange the unhappy hove. I empowered biin to treat with Mrs. Dickens as the friend of both of us for one and twenty years Mrs. Dickens wished to add. on her Part. Mark Lemon, and did so. On htturday last Lemon wrote to Forster that Mrs. Dickens "arratefullv and thankfully accented the terms 1 proposed to her. Of the pecuniary part of them, I will only say that I believe they are as generous as if Mrs. Dickens were a lady of distinction and I a man ot fart unit. 1 he remaining parts of them are easily described : my eldest boy to live with Mrs. Dickens, and to take cure of ber; my eldest girl to keep mi boose : both my girls and all my children but the eldest son to live with me in con tinued companionship of their Aunt Georgiue, for whom they bave all the tenderest aQectiona that I have ever seen among yeting people, and who bas a higher claim (as I hava often declared for many years) upon my affection, respect, and gratitude than anybody in tlus wnria. I hope that no one who may become acquainted with what 1 write bore can possibly be so cruel and unjust as to put any misconstruction on our separation so far. My elder children all understand it perfectly, and all accept it us inevitable. There is not a shadow of doubt or concealment among ns. My eldest son and 1 are one as to it all. Two wicked persona, who should bava spoken vary dif ferent of me, in consideration of earned respect and grati tude, bave (aa I am told, and indeed to my personal knowledge) coupled with tho separation the name of a young lady for whom I bavi a groat attachment and re gard. 1 win not reoeat tne name I nonor it too uiucu. l'pon my soul and honor, there is not on tiiis earth more virtuous and spotless creature than that yoang lady. I know htr to be innocent and pure, and as goad as my own oaught'is. lurther. I am quite sura that Mrs. Dickens, having re ceived this assurance from tne, must now believe it, iu the rt)iect I know ber to bave for me, and in the perfect con fidence 1 know her, in ber better moments, to repose in my truthfulness. Ou this hand, again, there is not a shadow of doubt or concealment between my children and me. All is opan and plain among us, as though we were brothers and sisters. They are perfectly certain that I would not de ceive them, and tba conhdeuca among ua is without a fear. O. D. A Fly-r.eat la the Hook of Dickens' Life. Shortly after bis return to Kngland, he penned the following, which, read In the light of his sudden death, Is very touching aud suggestive: Once upon a time (no matter when) I waa engaged in a pursuit (no matter what) which could be transacted by myself alone; in which I could bave no belp ; which im posed a constant at rain on the attention, memory, obser vation, and physical powers: and which involved an almost fabulous amount of change of place and rapid railway travelling. I bad followed this pur suit tbrouab an exceptionally trying winter, in an always trying climate, and hd re sumed it in Kiigiand alter bet a brief repose. Thus it cams to be prolonged until at length and, us it seemed, all oi a sudden it ao wore ma out that I could not rely, with uiy ubual cheerful confidence, upon myself to achieve the constantly recurring task, and began to feel (for the first time in uiy life) giddy, jarred, onsen, tsint, uncur tain of voice aud sight, and tiead and touch, aud dull of spirit. My first odd experience was of the remarkable coinci deuce between m ca-, in thetenoral mind, and ot M r. Merdle's, as 1 hud it recorded la a work of fiction called "Little Dornt." To be sure, Mr. Merdle was a swindler, forger, and thief, and uiy calling bad beeu of a less harm ful (aud lets rtuiuiierulive) ualure ; but it was all one for ' Here is Mr. Mcrdle's cms: "At first, ha wasdeadnf ,11 the diHM that over wer. known, and of several brand-new maliiDien Invented with the speed of light to men! the demand of the ocoasion.

Faying; the Intereat en the Public Debt How ine worn is none at tne nuo-ireanory. Few persons, savs the N. Y. Jiuenina Pont, have any conception of the labor that is required on the Cart of tnose employed Dy tne t government to uis urse the Interest on the public debt, and do it promptly and without error. When the Interest becomes due the otllclals at the Sub-Treasury have as much as they can do to pay the coupons or regis tered Interest as presented, and orten are required to work until late at nignt. Dciore tneir task is ac complished. A lew uetatis oi tne process or paying tne money will prove or interest. Previous to the date of pay ment the assistant treasurer notifies holders or coupons, In sums or thirty dollars and upwards, to fend In schedules tor examination. This notifica tion is complied with, and tho coupons are at tached to the schedules, which bear the numbers and denominations or the coupons. Iioth tre examined carefully, the latter to see that they are genuine and tor the purpose or assorting them, and the former to see that the numbers aud denominations correspond. This done, a check upon the cashier for the total amount Is given. on tne first a ay on wnicn interest is paiu noiaers of bonds come forward with their coupons singly or in lots under thirty dollars, and receive payment. The evidences of debt are examined with the same care as In the previous instance, aud are then passed over to clerks for assorting aud packing previous to transshipment to Washington. Each denomination and date are packed separately in bundles or one hum'red, a paper band is fastened around them, and upon it the tlerk marks nis initials, the date or ex- nmlnatlon nnsl tlin rlaiifiritlnatlrtn ond f Vinn nnnriAld the whole by punching a hole through the bundle. These packages are tnen passed over to Mr. Howne, who packs them lu parcels of one thousand coupons each, and In this form they are shipped to Washington. On arriving there the coupons are again examined, and if any error is iound tne Dtireau in jncw onus caned to account. So perfect is the system that It an error occurs it can be traced to the clerk through whose hunds the particular coupon passed, provided the paper strap is returned with the bundle. Thus, it win ne observed, tne coupons are examined ana counted four or rive times In tho bureau here and again in Washington, and every coupon paid may be said to pass through the hands ot Mr. Bowne. w nen it is remembered mat coupons, nniike bank or Treasury notes, are very small, and mat tne date Is printed In small characters, as Indeed is all the letterliu about the coupons, the labor or examining and assorting will be readily understood. The force employed in tne coupon bureau consists or nine clerks and a messenger, besides the chief. Errors are very rarely discovered, and the business Is con ducted with the utmost despatch and regularity. Those persons who have been disposed to grumble because they found it almost Im possible to stop the payment or a stolen coupon bond, or trace It by means of the coupon. will see what remote chances there are for aiding them in this particular. Notices are sent to the Sub-Treasury whenever coupon bonds are stolen. and the numbers are posted in front of the examin ing clerks, and It sometimes happens that payment Is stunned, but the Instances are quite rare. In the bureau lor the payment of Interest on regis tered bonds, the labor of disbursement is more simple, for the reason that each creditor of the Gov ernment, or his or her attorney, 1h recorded, and'no payment Is made unless the party demanding It Is known or identified. The various acts under which bonds have been Issued by the Government bear the following Uate8:-June 14, lsss; June 22, I860; February 8, 1861; March 2, 1801 (the Oregon war debt); July IT, 1861; August 6, 1801: February 25, lsoa(8-20s); March 3,1863 (10-408); March 8, 1864 (10-408); June B0, 1864 (0-21)6) ; Mar CD 3, 18G5 (o-2US) ; IHdrcU 8, I860, (to convert raua into consonaaiea ueut).

Madame Demorest, the Soroslan and queen fash- ionlst, lias formed a copartnership with a lady whose name (not yet permitted to be made public) Is a synonvm for practical good sense and success in large financial operations. She, like the Madame, is enthusiastic In her desire to establish a mammoth woman's importing and wholesale business, employ ing women in all ltsoitlcesand branches. She brings into tne enterprise an immense capital ana un funded business experience, acquired by personal attention to her previous financial operations all over the United States. When the combined talent of these two enterpris- inir ladles shall be brought to bear upon tne tea trade and the interests of their sex, results of marked character may be expected. They will era- bark in company at an early day for London, via Liverpool. Madame Demorest will remain In Lon don until she hears from her colleague, who will proceed direct to Canton. Here she will take up her residence among the Celestials, and become celes- tlalized as far as Dossible. She will purchase real estate In the city, and a "chop" or tea plantation In the country, and thus identify ner interests witn tne worsmppcrs 01 tou Indus. The teas will be shipped from Canton under her superintendence, assisted by her lady oillctals. She will doubtless permit the rougher and sterner sex to lade the vessels tnat transport tne precious cargoes, and man and command them. Madame Demorest Is to be the receiver at this port, and the chief of the two large warehouses, one ud and the other down town, where the teas are to be stored. She will bring her Immense business exoerience and acnualutauce to bear upon the busi ness In America. She will direct the hundreds of young ladles who will act as canvassers and agents . . 1 . .. - 1 1 .

Kx parte Sutherland 17 Am. I. R., 9, It Is useless to argue that the national legislature have legislated upon the whole subject ooveredT by our Insol vent laws, for here is a case purposely eioepted ; the U. 8. Courts bave neither the right to interfere with the judg ments of State courts founded upon fraud, nor oan they discharge from imnnsonmnt those against whom thau. judgments bava been obtained and whose persons are held ID execution. It ia not denied that Congressional legislation upon the subject of debt suspends the operation of btate law upon the sme snlijeot, and so also if the law extends tbe juris diction of tbe United States Courts over tbe person of the debtor ; but where, as in this instance a clanse in tbe act expressly excepts an indicated class of cases, it surely murt have been the intention of tbe national legislators not to interfere in the specified class of cases with tho laws of the several Stater. To give any other construction to the act of Congress would be to leave tbe petitioner without redress, and to dncliira that imprisonment for debt had not only been re vived in the United States, but was also to be a perpetual incarceration of the debtor, wno, whatever tuny have been his conduct, is not to be punished with such severity. Let petitioner give bond in the sum of $15,000 condi tioned ss is provided by tbe insolvent laws of the State of lreuuylvauia. DUELISTIC. An Affair that IIIht Hava Recn Highly Hhork- in itut wasn't.

Ills suit did not prosper, owing to "another feller's" attentions to the fair one. Thinking to end his difficulties and rival at the same time, our railroad hero challenged the man that was trying to steal away the Idol of his heart. The chal lenge was accepted promptly, ana tne two sanguinary youths repaired to the appointed place, attended by the seconds, a carriage, etc. Tossing for choice or position, It was won by tho railroadist, and the distance being properly paced oir, at the words "One, two. three Are!" they wheeled and blazed away. Each tired two shots at h's opponent, none taking enect. At mis juncture, while they were meditating the propriety or settling the matter In a hand-to-hand encounter, the sheriff or the county was descried coming over the Univer sity Hill. The rightists deeming "discretion the better part of valor," as against an officer of the law, beat a nasty retreat from the "Held of honor."
