The Oleriealiet sought to induce France to break with the Italian revolution. Olericalism was an enemy. (The last statement was greeted with prolonged ap. plisse by the Left.)

The Chicago papers announce the death of r that much respected citizen John V. Ayor, so well known and highly nteoemed in this cornm munity, as well as in Chicago. For some years past, ever since the war, Col. Ayer has spent his winiters in this city and on his plantation on the Teche for the benefit of his health, which was greatly imlaired by the severe winters of the North. For many years he had been a victim of the gout, in its sever tet form, and on the occaimon of his last visit to our oty, which was only a few weeks ago, his only klomnmotion was effected in a chair. Hlis love of company and genial spirit would lever endure the seclusion of his cham ber, and he could Ie soon every evening in the $t. Charles rotunda, rolling around anld chatting pheasantly and cheerfully to his old friends, of whom, perhaps, no man over had a larger number, Impatient, however, to rejoln his family, hts wife being an invalid, he anti cipated his customary return to Chicago, and thus lost the benllit of our milder clime, ag gravatei his disease alnd hastened the fatal terminution theri of. Ic was a most estimalble, kindly and hos pitable gentlneman, and endeared himself to a large circle of friends in the Mouth by the strong proofs he always gave of his warm sympathies ill all our sorrows and troubles, and hsl strong nttaincments to our institu tions ndl even to our custoll s. These attach ments to New Orleans and Louisiana were formed thirty years ago, and they survived his long residence in Chicago, and even his partial allenations of the war. An ceccurtrenl of it lsingularly ronTantle charactur hadl no doubt contributed to strengthen the tie by which Col. Ayer always iregiardedl himself as strongly bound to anid intimately associated with our city. In early life he had emigrated from one of the New England States and settled in this city, engaging in the shoe bushioes. For some years his business was prosperous and his prosp.crt. very encouraging, He regarded his circulustances to be sufficiently easy and assured to justify his marriage. Im pressed by the beauty, the intelligence and muany charms of a very attractive blonde, a native of this city, of highly cultiva ted tastes uand no little ambition, lie sought her hand and was married to her. For some time the marriage was a happy one, as the husibanrd was a prosperous nler chant, and able to gratify the ambitious tastes of his handsome wife. But, alas ! Mis fortlunes suddenly carnm upon the young couplle. T'h hlustbanwl failed In his business, lost everything, andl was iceduced to very straiteiwlid ilrcu!i!tanicels, to which hirs culti vatdl and somewhat spirited young wife found it very difficult to become reconciled. Not improbably she nmurmured over her hard lot and indulged in reproaches of her unfor tunat.r husband. But Mr, Ayer was not the man to surrender to the first rebuffof fortune. He was disgusted with the surroundings of his mnlshlap and disaster, and determinln to seek another held of enterprise and adl vellture. lie therefore propose, to try his fortunes in the then remote arnd small village of Chicago, away up on Lake Michigan. The wife re belled violrently against so will an idea, Leave her family and friends, and dear New Orleans, with all itsgaioties and ref Inel pleas ures, and trust her ilncompllxion, soft hands and beautiful golden locks to the rude windrl which sweep from Lake Michigan, ablanldon the luxuries of ieIm countufort!able homeii it takei up a residence In a wretched niud hole and con solrt withth the rude setoftlers of a w hal! f-Indian village oni the borders if civilization I No, never! ulit the stout New Englander was firm in his purposo and would nlot change it for airy woimuan. So they qpuarrelledi and separated. The youlng wife went honme to) her nolthler whilst Ayer hurried off to Lake Miclhigan, and there jolred the en terprising Ildy or settlers who laid the founladtions of tihe now grand and solid city of Chicago, the nlarvel of the cointinelit and the nohl lst mlon ument of Amnerican enterprise which hLas ever lieno oreeted. Shortly after the separation, the wife gave birthl to a lfine son, who was named Herbert. This separation was a final one. The hus band engaged in active and ablsoring busi ness, and the wife formenl now assuLciations; ach determilned to forgot the other, and to banish all idea of ever resu inrig their con nubial relAtilons. With the progress of years this allenation bwecame complete, so as to en title both parties to a legal separation, which was grantted. And not long after the decreo of the court had dissolved their old marriage tie, both formed new ones and entered upon new careers. The widow Ayer, with her beautiful boy, lbecame the much-loved and honored wife of a highly respected merchant and bank cashier, and the enterprisilng emi grant from New Orleans, who had repaired his fortunes in the distant town of Chic(ago, chose a most estimable lady of that town for his second venture in matrimony. Their second marriages proved very happy ones. Several children blessed both, and as time passed on these childred grew up to adulthood. The son of Mr. Ayer became a fine, handsome, manly, spirited and intel ligent youth; but adopted the name of his stepfather and secured a good position in a mercantile house. Then there were half-sis ters, charming and accomplished young la dies, upon whom the mother lavished every care in their instruction and training. At Iast our civil war camrre on and prModuced the many sorrows and afflictions which in volved nearly all families in this city. Among others who had a large share of these afflictions was the former wife of J. V. Ayer. Her husband became reduced in circuinstan ces, and fell into a condition of wretched health and Incapacity for business; the high. spirited Herbert was among the first to vol unteer for the war, and, joining the Washing ton Artillery, was soon involved in the severe and perilous service of that famous corps. And then the higher qualities and energies of the once pampered and spoilt little wife were developed in all their womanly beauty and strength. Assuming whole charge of her family of young daughters and invalid hus band, she engaged in teaching school, and with the fruits of her toil managed to sup port them in comparativo comfort. She was thus employed when New Orleans was .apted qld occuped by the Federals in '1go. Mouta monl i after this event, when the d Mississippi had been open through its whole A length, hJohn V. Ayer descrndedl the river, t and took up quarters at the Mt. Charieo HoteL I He had been here but a few days before he met an old acquaintance in Our eclebrated sur geon, Dr. Wari Stone, he mdle inquirlies reepecting Ills mnmer wife and son. The Doe bor gave him full information on the subject, I His former wife was in trat.ttned circunm stances, his ron, It noble young man, was engaged In battling for his native State, and his sisters were emnployed as governeesses. The heart of Ayer, a warm and true one, was greatly moved by this recital, and he so llrited the counsel and aid of the kind-hearted I Doctor to enable hini, In a judicnoue and r proper manner, to alleviate the dlstreesed and straitened conditlon of his formner wife and her chlhlren. Tlher Was need for great dell eacy and diseretion hi thearrangemnent of this alfair, but Dr. Stone cheerfully accepted the mission. The 1,g alienated Psrtlre were. brought together in his presence, and the con- 1 ditions .ordially accepted and agreed upon be tween them, Thorm were no exljnioatfions, rio discue.siosl or referenwc s to the past, but I with cotlnsidrate and dtlllate kindness, Colt. Ayer proffered to his forrmer wife who, by her own a'l,, had prohit.wl the separation, which hIul led hrt to his esronod marriage, a tittlenment for herse'lf Itnd daughter for life, which would secure her eurNlfort anti re('ut her from the tail andl drudgery of her present life. ''There' wasi (nIe condition Ire demiandtd, This was the restoration of his mon to his law ful nanme, anid t., Iles proper positilon, ns the son of John G. Ayer, ats his successor In his large business and ile heir to the inheritable portion of his estate. To'iwiM(mplish this the mnothier must proceed into the C(onfederay, and obtain the discharge of the son from tire s.evice and return with him to the father with an honorable discharge alnd passport. Thn mother proceded on this mission. It was at far more difficult one than she ever imagined. The perils and hardships of travel through the dlsolated, war stricken country she was compelled to traverse were but little trials and obsttacles. The most serlous ones were encounter ed when she retu:.led the camp of Gen. Bragg's army, in Tennessee. There she found her lovedw Hetrl,rt, a, cant, nanuni eating to himn all the elreumtsteineiim of her in terview with her father, concludled by pray ing him to nmrke applliatlon for lls discharge, which shei would undertake to secure from (in. Bragg. Ktr n was her eorrow, thohgh not unmixed with pride in her boy, when, In the most em phatic mannelllr, hel responded to her entreaty: "Never! never! will I dishonor myself by Sasking rele.mse from the post of duty and honor foit' such conhlderrtioris. (o ho(rnie. and tell my father that." But, the energetic little woman dhtl not re linquish her intlert4kilng at this rebuff. She held interviews with the ofilcers and privates of his company and obtained the signatures of every one of them to an application to (Gen. Bragg for the reolease of Private Hrlbert C fromr further service, setting forth the reasons therefor, andl bearing testimony to his go odt chararter as a )brave soldler. This appllication was pre'sntlil to (len. Brargg, and that stern soldier, to the great grief of the mother, refused to grant the discharge without the application of Her tort hlnmleif. Nor would his high sense of patriotic duty recognize asr valid or proper the grounds on which that application was bated. Here was another dllshetlrtening re buff. Then it occurrdxl ti t te thoughtful and Ingeinious mrother, to continue her woemaitne, Journey to the (onfet derate capital and lay the ease before her kind friend, President Davis. This resolution she c(itrrid out, and lWt%'tsul Ft Ing to Richmond repaired immtediately to the Presid.entm residtnce, Atnd with a few lo quntl, words qulckly obtained from the ever generous and kind hearted man the dis charge of her son. Hurrying westwardlly. she safely reach(ed the headquarters of Gint. Bragg, sought Herbert, and then, with tears and all the irrtistlible influences of a loving mother, persurdued htini to avail ,lrseRlf ot f the honrorablle dischargeogranted by the President. With the aiffctionate rtulinus of his fellow-sol dlier and the kindly regrets and go.fl wIshes of his iass:ociats In tire Army of the Tennes ' see, Herbert and his inother left the Conform crate caimp and protntiedd on the long and tedious journey to the Mississippl. The town -of B]aytu Hara had been agreed on as the place where ils father would await him. Passing through the Confederate lines he reached in safety that town, and wias con ductedh to his firther, then on Iboard of a Fted eoral gunxoat. There wras i joyful antI affee tionate embrace of the fattler and son, who hadL never before seem each other. And now Hebrt Ayer succeedns lile father in his large business in Chicago, and is re garded as one of the most promising young merchants of that city, is happily married to a lbeautiful and elogant lady, and will ever, we feel assured, maintain the honorable pei tion to which, by htis father's death, he is called. And tte true and devoid mother now resides with her hdaughters in New York in the enjoyment of every comfort, includingr that peace o(f mind that passes all understand ing which proceeds from a seonse of duty per formied, an error repaired, air folly explated. OUR BOOK TABLE. PE.nt; on, INCIDlNTS Or TnAVEL AND EXPLOA-. TTON Ix THE LAND OF THE INtuA. IBy E. Georg,, 8qui r. Harper Broshere, New York ; A. P. Harrington, 118 Canal street. Mr. 8quier is no new traveler; he has given us halt a d( z"n books already that arc standard authorities on tle countries he has visited and described. In this story he seems to be com pleting the same great work, for it comes as a sort of sequel to his " Nicaragut" and "Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley," and com' pletees he story he has to tell of the relies of the ancient Iodian civilization of this country and the decay and ruin into which these races have fallen. On this point this book is invaluable. Mr. Squier proved indeed a 8chleiman in Peru, having un earthed and investigated all the pre-Columbus buildings, palaces, etc., of the Andes. On this point alone, the bock is invaluable, and necessary assistant and geography to Prescott; but Mr. tquier does not aonfine himself alone to the past, but gives us the Pera of to-day, in all its picturesqueness; its wild mountain life; its still barbarous Indians; its monwain wonders; the stones of the sacred islands of Titicaca. In dred, Peru from the Pasfide to the summit of the I Andes; and hnally, to make it stall more valuablr, the book is qpleedidly illustrated with the moss graphic picturee of Peru mountain n enery.

Oside has always been a popular,fvorite; het libels on women have been accepted and ap. pleaded by both men and women, but the insatiate desire she displays of being "naughty" takes V sway mueh of the chaorm from her stories. Mrs. Forrester, in "Mignon," is very Onidaeeque in all I but this. The story is of the same hear ties area tire that Onida so often paints, oaring nothing for her husband, willing even to saoroifoe hersel f and her honor toa man for whom she cares nothing, from a obstinate, selfish and cruael disposition. 'eb story is so muoh like OWida that one natar yexpeno the herfol l's fal, that always comes, sad hurriee on for the grand oatastrophe, when Mignon to fly from her home with her lover, Bat. Mr g to say, It newer omes. To the sat. pWt'l nay, astonisement of the reader the hero inse repent, reforms, and the story winds up with as pioturesque and as pretty a ploture of domes. tic happlaess as one could wish. Nor is this sp parently unnatural end forced or exaggerated but instead it strikes the reader as happy, appro. priate and true. 2 he story throughout is as lively, epigrammatic and entertakIing as Onida's, without all that sombreness and miusatrophy Miss de Ia Raine likes to throw into her story. Tn , MersTsa: A Love Story. By Mrs. Henry Wood, T. B. Peterson a Brothers, PuiledeI phbi, publishers. J. 0. Eyrich, 180 Oanal street, New Orleans. Mrs. Wood can write good stories and is able to build up excellent plote that defy the ingenuity of the oldest novel reader to unravel, but as thoroughly as Bald's conundrum. The present "mystery" Is not one of these, In fact no mystery at Ill. At the end of the story one is tempted to ask the reason of its sensational titles and want to know where "'he mystery" comes in; for save a orasy woman and amen who changes his name on account of a murder he has committed, there is none. The whole story is rambling, disjointed and far from showing that onnection and sequene that a story which depends for its encses prinoi pelly upon its plot should display. There are murders, conspiracies, ete., in it, but they are not "dove'tailed," ae it were, into the story, and consequently lose all the effIat they would other wise produce. A Monsaw MzsrtsT.sPrn. rS. "o Narme" se rtes. Rabprts Bro., Boston; B. CL Eyrich, 180 Canal street, "A Modern Mephistopheles" reads like a I modern adaptation of that very old story; its hero is indeed, the same character as his anoient namesake, and yet with all the eharacter;stics of a gentleman. The story is the same--a young I man's life wrecked - its very air the same, I gloomy and funereal, Altogether, it is too weird to seem pleaeible or natural, tad while the story ie interesting, it st*ikes one at the aSme time al lunch like the Arabian Night., Vathex or Frank. enstein-a little out of the way. Couotar QOA.cTB. By the Countess of Bless ington. 1'. B. Peterson & Drue., Philedelphia; B. G. B. yric, 180 Canal street,. The noble writer of this story has followed closely in the footsteps of Miss Edgeworth In more ways than one. Not only does she choose the same scene, so often obhosen by the author of the "Absentee"-Ireland-but the style and char acter of her story is much the same, with that same pleasant, hom.l hke quiet, and that same moral expressed, but not too openly. The novel is simply what it pretends to be-- story of simple country quarters, no less and no more. "T.la CARDInAL's DAo u'ran," a sequel to "Ferne Fleming." Byi Mrs. Osaherine A. Warfield. For sale at l yrich's book-store, No. 10 Canal street. This Is a new work by the talented author of "Ferne Fleming," the "Household of Bouverie" and many other works that have acquired de served reputation. It has all the qualities that can be demanded of a first clau novel, smooth. ness of style, life in the dialogue, variety of In oldents and a continuity of interest joined to the distingubshing marks of originality and thought fulness. It is a very neatly bound duodecimo volume, and we commend it to our readers. --· ***-·- --- --- Against Time. Yesterday the compositors on the D 0xoc~aT engaged in a banter about setting type against time. OS,,ol them, Mr. 8. D. Pool, took the dare, a.d in one hour's time actually set up eighteen hundred and twenty-one ems in brevier type, doing gcod work at that. Some com. positor, whose name is not mentioned, in the annals of type-setting may have done more, but this Is we believe the greatest number of ems on record ever set in brevier type. We think that here it an occasioa for a competitive match between the printers in the city. There is a good deal more in it than in buse ball, and we are willing to put up something for a prize.
