[From our latent European 111m.] The scarcity ot dwell ings in Vienna is so great, that at this nsmw of removal (snys the Aus trian Gasette) a number of families are abso lutely without shelter More than .KM), in three tnuhourgs. arc in this condition. and some have obtainea a temporary lodgment in the prisons snd uno?'unied public buildings. It was ru mored that barracks were to be constructed in the city moats. * The Marshal Castellan took a fancy, not long since, on a very hot day. to hare a representa tion of a battle on a plain near the city of Ly ons. While the firing was its height, hechanmd to perceive a couple of grenadiers who, tired out with exercise and the heat, had betaken rh-mselves to a shady spot, and were comforta bly stretohed on the grass. The Marshal put, his horse to his speed, and galloped straight to the delinquents. '' R*scals, he exclaimed, ti what are you doing here* While your comrades are lighting, von are lying here asleep! What mcam this neglect of duty?" Pirdon, Marshal' replied one of the sol diers, ? we are personating the dead bodte*.'1 The Marshal laughed, and turning his horse, galloped away. Le Sietle publishes the following advertise ment ; A notary, aged 32, without property, wishes to marry, and is desirous of finding a ladv suitable in every respect, of good family, and worth uot less than .'WO.OOO francs in her own right Such a one may address (post paid) * Chiteacroux (Indre), to the initials J B A. A. F. . P?in< E Albert is to preside in an educa tional conference, to be held for three days in Loudon, commencing June 22. to consider the why the working classes withdraw their children prematurely from school, and the ex pedient* by which that great obstruction to edu cation can be overcome. An educational museum is to be opened at the same time, and an exhibition of maps, globes, books, paint b?.xes, and other instruments of study. The debate will throw light on the subject of educa tion among the very poorest. Conviction OF the Innocent.?A petition has been presented to the House of Lords, for some remedy for the evil that arises when a Ensoner is convicted and afterwards proved to e altogether innocent. All that at present ran be done is to grant a pardon; but a tribu nal should be established, by which the matter might be investigated and the judgment re versed, while the injured party should receive compensation. The Great Handel Festival.?The pre liminary arrangements for this musical solem nity have been progressing in a satisfactory manner. The London department of the cho rus has long been in a state of completeness, as the trials at Exeter Hall, with 1.100 singers, under Mr. Costa's direction, of the choruses in | the Messiah. Israel in Egypt, and Judas Mac cabteus, have proved. Ladt Bi l*er?whose silly and unreadable novel has been puffed into notoriety by the ef forts made by her enemies to suppress it?ha? managed to catch the public car upon another matter connected with ner wrongs. She sent a . packet of manuscript to Lord Lyndhurat. which, ' being written in too small a character for that gallant champion of distressed ladies to rend, ; was laid by. She requested its return after a time ; but it was somehow lost. The lady then write# a letter, hinting at some dark fraud or t conspiracy by which the papers have got into l the wrong hand*; ind Lyndhurst has had to ext lain at the Hou<*e of Lords that he has made no improper use of them. She has also accused the press of conspiring to abuse her book. Xbal Dow has been welcomed In a temper- ' ance meeting at Exeter Hall, and addressed the assemblage He said the suppression of the 1 liquor traffic would effect a saving of 75,000.000 Kinds, in addition to an equal saving in Lime. ; e destruction of the national habit of drink- | ing would preserve 6O.IX1O lives a year, now slain by the grog shops; would rescue 000,000 : women from starvation, and a million children from vice and crime. The speech was greeted with enthusiasm. Charlotte Bronte and Mr. Wilson.?Mr. ' II Shepbeard. late Fellow and Tutor of Orial College. Oxford, Incumbent of Casterton. and Chaplain and Secretary of the Clergy Daugh- ? ters Seb??ol. writes a long letter to the London ( Times, to repel the chargos of cruelty and spiritual pride, brought by the late Charlotte Bp>nte in Jane Eyre, and repeated by Mrs Ga?kell in herlife of the novelist, against Mr. ? arus Wilson in connection with the Cowen Bridge or Casterton School. Mr*. Ga.ikkll freem* to have got into sev eral scrams by her life of Charlotte Bronte. The aged father feci* deeply her remarks con cerning his treatment of his children, and she has been compelleiTfos^nd an apology, through a solicitor, to a lady who has been grievously injured by the imputation cast upon ner by the ! reference to an alleged private fact in the un- I happy career of Bramwell Bronte. It is Rcwored that Prince Albert's speeches are about to be collected and published under the auspices of the Society of Arts. Goesip connect* the name of Dr. Plavfair with the ed iting of these splendid exercitation*. The Memorials of Andrew Cii'Kse?the Electrician?have just been published in one volume He stood among the foremost of the natural philosophers of tne present century, and is held in respectful, admiring remem brance by that inner circle of science which gives laws to the outer world, that can but re ceive the acquisitions of higher and more gifted minds. Andrew Crosse was one of Sydney Smith's friends and used to relate how the Dean of St. Paul's once commenced a charity sermon as follows; A never sees B in distress without wi?hing C U> relieve him " Crosse discovered a simple means of purifying sea-water, and making it fit W> drink through the agency of electrieity. This discovery has since been pat ented by a company. A CrElom Work just published, is ' The Constitution of the Animal Creation, as ex pressed in Structural Appendagest" by (J. Cul- ; vert Holland. The author's new theory is, that the hair is not bestowed for ornament or protec tion from atmospheric influences alone, but is the result of the escape of the different super fluous elements of the system which are used up in the production of hair in man. and hair, tushes, horns, Ac., Ao., in the lower animals The Poem * of T B. Read, E. H Stoddard, and II. T. Tuekerman. are praised in the Crit ic, while the laudation bestowed by American critics on Walt Whitman's " Leaves of Grass.'' is justly repudiated.

It is a romance of over whelming interest. The Comet?A pleasint satire with this ti tle has been published in J^ondon. supposed to be describing the June days before the Comet came, thirty years after the great event. The -New Sotiett of Female Artists opened its exhibition on the 1st June. The work of female artists are here collected. The Ureat Eastern is expected to be launched in August.

In * ranee and Germany they gon f y engrave ?H the figures on a copper plate, have copies made by the ordinary hand engra ving-press, and place them at the end of the L i?f' 7. c?8t of engraving on copper is much lesd than that of making a wood cut, es pecially for simple figures without shadings, since in engraving only the lines have to be cut out about 1 64 of an inch deep, while in wood ? cutting the whole surface of tho block, excep ting the spiwo ooenpied by the lines, must be dug out 1-Jrtof an inch, so as to leave the figure in relief. The reverse is the case with the cost oi press-work, copies from R copper plate being mueh more expensive than printing from a wf*>d I cut, hU| m superiority of finish the engravings are greatly to be preferred. The expense of press-work m in proportion to the number of copies; the expenso of making the plate is the lime in all eases; for these reasons in r ranee, where the average edition of a scientific work is SOOcopios, publishers use copper plates, the saving on the original cost paying for the expense of printing, while they have the ad vantage of a better article. In the United Mates, where wo print for the million, and where, besides, skilled hand-labor is very high, the luxury of copper plate engraving has hith erto been out of the question; but we hope that the new prec>s will work achange in this respoct. Hi*ts for Horse-Deai.ers. ? Tompkins bought a fine horse?paid $300 for him. The horse, after a few months, proved to be lame in the right shoulder. Tompkins was distressed a bo at it; tried all sorts of remedies?embroca tions. liniments. Mustang included?under the advice of tho very best vetcrinarics; still the lameness w?.s obstinate and grew rather worse, tie became d?*?|ierato. and hit upon this device to sell the horse: He drove an ugly tenponnv nail plump into the right fore-foot, and left i"t there for ten days; when he led the tortured animal limping to a neighboring black-mith to , be shod The blacksmith was a dealer in horses. ' and quite a jockey in his way. After a while. Tompkins called at the shop for his horse , In*t * a splendid gelding of vours. Mr Tomp kins. pity he is so lame." savs the blacksmith. ?

The blacksmith began to chaffer. First he of fered fjO, then $100. and at last $200, for the anirnar Tompkins was persuaded, and accept ed the last offer.

The blacksmith produced the nail, and assured Tompkins, with great apparent satisfaction, that while paring down the hor-e's hoofs he had found that infer nal long piece of iron, and drawn it oat of the frog of the near fore-foot." 44 Is that all you know about it'" Tompkins asked, very quietly.

About 11 o'clock two young ladies entered thc water closet, when the floor gave way, and one of them, named Margaret L-ggett. fell through, tho other es caping, she knows not bow. The vault is walled up round like a well, is thirty-five feet deep, and contains fifteen feet of water. The ladv o feared gave the alarm instantly, and ft was discovered that the floor had fallen in one m<le The neighborhood was aroused by the agonizing shrieks of those first on the spot Tho poor girl was called again and again, but no response came up from the dismal vault, pie silence of death wa* there. Lights were lowered, but they were put out long before reaching the water by the carbonic acid gas which had accumulated in the place. Water was thrown down to disturb this, and a wind a*} was brought to the spot and rigged, and long poles with books procured. The timc passed away dismally, and attempt after at tempt was made m vain to raise the body. n the gas was driven out ef the vault a man went down to the surface of the water, and after repeated attempts, succeeded, with a pole and h.>oh, in bringing the body to the. surface and attaching a rope to it, when it was drawn up. This was between tho hours of three and f>ur o clock yesterday morning, the poor girl having been in the abyss of death for more than four hours. The victim of this woeful occur rence was a member of the Presbyterian church, and was very much esteemed.

"Ft will thus be seen that the strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result of ?, short supply and active demand ; but when it is con sidered that we mr.y hear at any moment of the en tire suspension ol shipments at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as s?>on as a sufficient force from England nrrivosat. the seat of war. all hve ports of entry in China, will prolwibly lie placed under strict blockade, it would not be surprising to see Teas at a much higher figure thau they have yet attained."
