Adventurers. persons who luck the necessary discipline and balance ot mind to submit them selves to the laws of society, while at the same tiaae the^r *re devoured bj the ambition of dis tinguishing themselves, of making a fortune or ? a sensation They stand in the same relation ?o, the ch*v.iher d* Industrie as the pirate to pickpocket, while to men of genuine ambition they compare a? a cox'omb to a man ot the world, or a poacher to a sportsman. Adventurers are rarely without a redeeming love of glory, and, if they are successful, thev become heroes like Napoleon. On the other hand, they seldom listen to the appeals of con science; and, if they are successful, they become scamps like Cogliostro. In the historical rec ords of men of brilliant fame, we find as many adventurers as persons of infamous repute in the police returns They are to be found d uly in the walks of private life, as well as in the realms of fiction. M wawber, in David Coppor lield. would hay* Seen a groat advetuurer, if he had Dot iltf9tindd to b^ColQ6 thd grc&t Macawber. lie was al.rayg waiting for sotne tliiug to - turn up."' This peculiar *tate of expectation is, in fact, the normal state of inind of an adventurer. As long as this state of sus pend last*, he keeps wisely in the background, ransacking earth and heaven, his brain aching with thought, his heart swelling with hope, his very soul bunting with ambition; but. as all the while his pocket is empty, and as he does not perform any honest labor for the purpose of filling it. his life is that of an outlaw. His name, nay bis very existence, is utterly un known, except to bis unfortunate family and his miserable creditors. But ot a sudden his corroding ambition is gratified, the dreams of his life are realized .Something uat turned up. He jumps into s..mrt conspicuous or notorious position. The tact of his existence is like a new revelation to mankind. His name falls like a bomb upon the public ear. - Who in the world is he ask a thousand voices, and echo answers; "An Adventurer." If he is a person of military turn, he be comes a filibuster, like I/ipci or Walker. If ot an cncr^etic, souii-intriguing nature, he be comes a rajah, like .Sir Jam** Brook <?if Sara wak. It bis predilections are of the financial order, he become* a railway king like Hudson, or a colossal swindler like Law If of a reli gious disposition, he becomes a prophet, like J i'unof Lcyden or Joe Smith. The word adventurer is derived from the Itfttin adcemre. The knight-errauts were adventurers, and the poets of the middle exalt the " Dame Avcniuire," as she was ?ailed, to the diguify of a goddess, and repre sent iier as a woman of angelic beauty, pos sessed. like tJyges, of the power of making herself invisible by putting on a mysterious ring, which enables her to travel incog, all over the world, and to observe, without bein^ observed, the doings of in:inkiud. lu order to make her divine I'aul Pry mission uiore com fortable. she carries a staff in her hand, which has the magic power of helping her over land and sea. ? * * * Female adventurers are also pretty numer ous Nell <Jwynne, Lady Hamilton, Madame de Pompadour, Lola Montez. all come more or 4ess under the category ot adventurers. lu Italy, female adventurers abound among the ^ybMcesses and highest nobility. In Europe and America they occasionally make their ap as governesses and teachers of foreign JaHMM?Am. Cyciuyatlia. **' :< "^^ABOLISUISG women. ^Tjlfc^^arriott K. Hunt is, much to her own M|^Ba? ? woman. She is by profession a phy tieian and resides in Boston. Dr. Huut is one of the dozen women in the Lnited States who pine \>ccau*e Naturo did not make them meu. This unfortunate cir cumstance is the standing grievance of their lives. What avail the privileges, immunities attentions, and advantages accorded to them by the gallantry of the rougher sex, so long as they m&y not go to Congress enlist in the militia, be watchmen and constables, wear pantaloon*, or even vote? Impressed with an indignant sense of these disabilities, Mrs. Dr. Huut is seeking legisla tive relief I nlike her compatriot, Lucy Stone, she doe? not despise the power of the State, or altogether rctuse to piy her taxes. She brings tier case before the Leg stature of Massachu setts. That body has appjinted a joint Select Committee to consider i<nd report whether or no Dr. Harriott and the rest of womankind shall be admitted to the ballot-box. This Com mittee. we learn from the Boston papers, has held a public hearing in the State House, whsre Dr. Hunt "expressed her disgust at the freedom allowed to men to vote, wh.le women are debarred the privilege." In this "disgust1" she was ably sustained by lion. Samuel ? bewail and Wendell Phillips. The Committee listened patiently, and appointed another day toheti it will listen still more. Mi*. Dr. Hunt mistakes the best way to ap proach the oljeet she has in view Instead of demanding the pri\ilege of suffrage, which she would not care tor after she had it. she should go at once to the root of the matter. Let her demand the passage of a hill in the following words: ?' Hr 11 euaetetl, That all women shall become men ; this act to take effect immediately." Nothing short of such a comprcheusive and thorough proceeding will answer the expecta tions of Dr. Hunt and her small band of female nf ?ruiep. verthelcs* we will not promise to support .Ml'NMVtaure. To eonfe** th? truth, we do not liiikltM women abolished. We would rather frVMA-'ut them. If they were all like Dr ILucy Stoue we might think differ But the softer sex. we ure free to say Pto us worth preserving as it is. We call up.n the Massachusetts Legis re to exercise a judicious conservatism it would become of us if there were uu w^men '?JV. 1".

Their fuuds were quite ex hausted. and how to '-raise the wind' had for some time bceu a matter of discussion. Two of the party, in .re feeling than the rest, pro posed to set the man upon a stoop, and accord ingly laid hold of him with that intent, when the proceeding was put a stop to by another proposition, which was to bag the drunken loafer and sell him to the doctors at a medical college. This idea struck all bands very fa vorably. A big w,*s pricured. the inebriate slipped into the sack and borne upon the shoulders of the party to the college. The doctor answered the summons at the hell and demanded what w.-ts wanted, when the sp>kes urin said, " Doct<?r, we have got a 'stiff* for y.?u." 1 he doctor asked but lew questions, ami paid $J for the "Stiff, that being the sum required '1 lie sack, with its contents, was deposited in tb* ball, and the fellow* had taken their de parture, when the loafer, who had been thrown in rather an uncomfortable position, attracted tb* doctor's attention just as he was about closing the door. He at once perceived thai the man was alive, and again opening the door halloed to the young fellows, who lingered ot the walk, telling them that the man was alire " All right," said the spokesman ; "you've go him now. and you can kill him wheu you wan Li.u " The doctor saw that he had been *old and pocketed the joke ; but unfortunately thcr was a bole in his pocket, and the joke leakei out.?iV.

Dkital Cojinrcr or a Mob.?Yeaterday af ternoon our oily was the theatre of a most dis graceful proceeding, hut one in which, to the credit of our people b? it said, cone but the vury dregu ol the population were engaged. The bodies of the Mi*Keenport murderers, after l.eing cut down, were placed in coffins provided for the purpose, and placed in a furniture w?gon with a view to their removal to the grave yard for interment. The kister of Charlotte, with an affection, however wicked or abandon ed its object may have been, should secure for her the sympathy of the crowd, took a seat on one ot the coffins, and the wagon inured on to its destination. Toe crowd at this time was immense and the conduct of many of the loafers who formed it dmgusting. As the vehicle neared the grave yard, however, it became much woim, and the scenes "hich followed were disgraceful to hu minity. 1 he unfortunate woman seated on the coffin of her sister, and filled with grief for her untimely end, was booted and abused, and called all kinds of names and flnaUy pelted her with stones until her Ids was almost put in jeopardy. Foremost in the brutal aff.lr were a number of abandoned negroes who did every thing that their brutal instinct* oould taggesl to annoy the woman, and but *hat they wew prevented, we believe they would have laid violent hands upon them. A few respeetabh men. who saw the transaction, however, inter fered and succeeded in getting the uaob to de sist, and the wafpm proceeded on its way - ritt*6prg Chromcl* of Saturday.
