The two on the-rope immediately began to pot themselves in dancing position ; they were both in the full dress of the period, with lace raf fles, bag wig3, and swords. The eyes of the whole house were fixed on them. Signor Sarfuico was still grand, bat in beginning the dance of friend ship, he seemed to have some difficulty with his feet. Perote had perceived this, and made some remark,, which.nobody else could hear; but it aroused the Italian’s anger. He raised Ms band as if to strike him ; the same instant, Perote’s rapier was drawn, and before the audience could comprehend that they had actually quar relled, Sarfuico’s hanger was out also, and they thrusting at each other on thetight rope. A pin might have been heard falling in the crowded house, where everybody sat still in his place, ga zing np at the two fighting in the air. How they kept their footing, the genius of mischief . only knows. The concentrated hatred and mal ice of their faces was fearful to see up there in the flickering lamplight. Pass after pa3S, lunge after Innge, they made at each other with the < rapidity of lightning. Both were good swords men, but Perote was the best of the two ; he warded off the Italian’s thrusts with bis small < rapier, aud positively seemed more certain of ! his footing than before the quarrel began ; till i Sarfuico, making one desperate 1 inge, received a i back-stroke which threw him off his balance, ] and at the same moment attempted to grapple i with his enemy. Down he went.and down went i Perote. A cry of horror rose from the specta- ] tors ; but some power had interfered in their be- ’ half, fur there was the Italian hanging to the rope by his feet, and the Frenchman holding on - to it with both his hands. “ Look, ladies and gen- 1 tleinen,” he cried, with a face of triumph suffi- i cieut for having saved* Christendom ;“ behold I how I have perilled my life, and still more my j fame, to uumask deceat and vindicate scienc* ! Look at the straps attached to his shoe-soles, i and passed over the rope, whose great-grand father performed before Henri Quatre. I guess- i ed it—I knew it, through the inspiration of my 1 science; and I die happy, since the villain is uu- i masked." i Monsieur Perote did not die happy or other wise on that occasion. Before Ills parting speech was done, the spectators had recovered ] their senses sufficiently to give the alarm, and ! rush to the rescue with ladders, fire-escapes, and I feather-beds to be fallen upon. He was got safe ly down : so with Sarfuico, though it proved a i more difficult business, and tlie doctors never ( could understand why he did not die of apoplexy 1 From that evening however his glory had de parted—-a fact of which the the last of the bo- l ble Florentine family was so sensible that he , departed also without sound of trumpet, and to i the regret of several tradesmen. His now sue- t cessful rival made a longer stay and a good deal J of noise about the unmasking ; but the whole scene cured the Dublin world of fashion of it3 ' fancy for such performances. One knows not ( not what Blondon may effect, but the like have t never been popular among the play-goers of the royal city.since they happened to wl tuesa a duel 1 on the tight rope. 1 HOW MR. Bl’EClIKlfu)ST HIS BOOTS. ! The following is in Henry Ward Beecher's ! best- vein : The difference between 7 and 8 is not very ; great; only a single unit. And yet that differ- i ence has power over a man's whole temper, con-' ’ venieneo and dignity. Thus, at Buffalo, my boots I were set out at night to be blacked. In the 1 morning no boots were there, though all the • neighboring room3 had been served. I rang. I rung twice. “ A pretty hotel—nearly eight 1 o'clock, going out at nine, breakfast to be eaten, < and no boots yet." 't he waiter came. *ook my * somewhat emphatic order, and left. Every min- 1 ute was an hour. It always is when you are out 1 of temper. A man in his stocking feet, in the 1 third story of a hotel. fiml3 Jiimaelf restricted in 1 locomotion. I went to the'door, looked up and down the hall, saw frowsy chambermaids ; saw < afar off the master of the coal scuttle ; saw gen tlemen walking in bright boots, unconscious of 1 the privileges they enjoyed, but did not see any * one coming with my boots. < A German servant at length came, round and '■ rnddy-faeed, very kind and good natured, honest 1 and stupid. He informed me that a gentleman ‘ had already taken boots No 78 (mv number.)— I He would hunt him up ; thought he was break fasting. Here was a new vexation. Who was I the man who had taken my number and gone ' for my boots? Somebody had them on, warm < and nice, ancj was enjoying his coffee, while I 1 walked up and down, with less and less patience, who had none too much at first. No servant 1 returned. I rang again, and sent energetic and ’ stoccato messages to the office. Some water had been spilled on the floor. I stepped in it, 1 of course. In winter, cold water feels as if it 1 burned yon. Unpacked my valise for new stock- 1 ings. Time was speeding. It was quarter past eight; train at nine, no boots, and no breakfast. | I slipped on a pair of sandal rubbers, too large '< by inches for my naked foot, and while I shuf fled along the hall they played upland down on i my feet. First, one shot off; that secured, the other dropped oa the stairs ; people that I met, looked as if they thought that 1 -was not well I over last night's spree. < It was very annoying. Reached the office ' and expressed my mind. First, the clerk rang the bell three times furiously, then ran forth 1 himself, met the German boots, who had boots 79 in his hand, narrow and long, thinking, per- i haps. I could wear them. Who knows but 79 « had mv boots? Some curiosity was bee-inning to be felt among the bystanders. It was likely I that I should have half the hotel inquiring after s my boots I abhor a scene. Retreated to my I room. On the way thought that I would look < at room No. 77's boots. Behold they were 1 mine! j’liere was the broken pull straps ; the patch on the right side, and the very shape of i my toes—infallible signs ! The fellow had mark ed them 77, and not 78. And all this hour’s tu mult arose just from the difference between 7 1 and 8. I I lost my boots, lost the train, lost my temp | er, and of course, lost my good manners.

N. SANDERS IN NASHVILLE. The following amusing accouut of the last ap pearance of the redoubtable Geo. N. Sander* and theProvisional Government of Kentucky, is from the Louisville Democrat, said by that paper to be derived, as to fan and facts, frotn Wm. H. Polk, of Tennessee: George N. Sanders, Wm. H. Poi.k, or Ten nessee, and the Provisional Government or Kentucky.—There is no one better known in the country as a scholar, politician, and wit, than Wu». H. Polk, of Tennessee. He has a planta tion some forty miles from Nashville, lives com fortably, and is, with all, a resolute man in his ipinions. He was the opponent of the eranes :ent Harris, who has mysteriously disappeared, md was voted for by the co-operationists in the sieption for Governor of that State. Abont a nouth ago notice came to him that he must eave the State—a notice which, however, he lid pot obey. His description of the terror of he rebels on the taking of Nashville, is said to ie supremely rich. Among other incidents, is me of peculiar interest to us Kentuckians, con lefning the fate of the late Provisional Govern nent. Colonel Polk, a few days before the arrival of mr army at Nashville, and, indeed, before he leard of the fall of Port Donelson, in going town the road from his farm, discovered a fat, agged, bushy-headed, tangled moustached, dila lidated looking creature (something like an lt ilian organ-grinder in distress), so disguised in nud as to be scarcely recognizable. What was iis surprise on a nearer approach to see that it fas the redoubtable George N. Sanders. George has met the enemy, and he was theirs —not in person, not in feeling. His heart was ost, his breeches were ragged, and his boots howed a set of fat, gouty toes protruding from hem. The better part of him was gone, and ;one it good distance. ‘ In the name of God, George, is that you ?' aid the ex-Oougressman. • Me !’ said the immortal George, 11 wish it lasn’t; I wish I was anything but me. But rhat is the news here—is there any one run ling ? They are all running back there,’ poiut ng over his shoulder with his thumb. ‘ No,’ said Mr Polk ; ‘ not that I know of.— fou needn’t mind pulling up the seat of your lantaloons. I’m not noticing. What in the i — l are you doing here, looking like a muddy jizarus in the painted cloth ?’ ‘B. II,'said George to the Tennesseean, confi entially, and his tone would have moved a heart f stone, ‘ Bill, you always was a friend of mine. knowed you a long while ago, and honored you -cuss me it 1 didn t. I said you was a man ound to rise. I told Jimmy Polk so ; me and" imuiy was familiar friends. I intended to get p a biographical notice of you in the Democra ic Review, but that damned Corry stopped it.— ’in glad to see you ; I’ll swear I am.’ ‘ Of course, old fellow,’ said the charitable ’ennessean, more in pity of his tones than even f the fluttering eloquence, * but what is the mat er ?’ * Matter' said George ‘ the d—d Lincolnites rave seized Bowling Green, Fort Donelson, and lave, by this time, taken Nashville. Why,’ con inued he, in a burst of confidence, ‘ when I left, lacks was worth a hundred dollars an hour, and ’o!k, (in a whisper) I didn’t have a d—d cent.’ The touching pathos of this last remark was dded to by the sincere vehemence with which t was uttered, aud the mute eloquence with phich he lifted up a ragged flap in the rear of lis person that some envious rail or briar had oru from the position of covering a glorious re reat. ‘ Not a d—d cent.’ repeated lia. ‘ and, Polk, I ralked that hard-hearted town up and down, all :ay, with bomb shells dropping on the street of very lamp post—I'll swear I did, trying to.bor ow some money, and, Polk, do you think there Hasn't a scoundrel there would lend me anything, iot eveu. Harris, and he got the money out of he bunks, too V ‘ No !’ said Polk, who dropped in a word oc asionally as a sort of encouruger. ‘ Bill.' repeated Sanders, • Bill, I said you was i friend of mine—and a taleuted man—always aid so, Bill. I didn't have a red. and I’ve walk 'd forty five miles in the last day by the mile tone. and I haven’t had auythiug to bay a bit o eat,’ he added with impassioned eloquence, what’s a cursed sight worse, not a single drop 0 drink.’ This is complete. It is unnecessary to tell low the gallant and clever Tennesseean took the rayfarer home, gave him numerous if not innum iruble drinks, and filled him with fruits of field ind flesh of flocks. When George was filled, however, he signified >y numerous sigii3, and finally by words, that he risbed the servants to leave the room. * Bill.’ suid-he, ‘ I know you were a man with • heart in your bosom ; I told ’em so. 1 said do tetter man than Bill Polk could be found. 1 old ’em so.’ ‘Told who toV asked Mr. Polk, rather our irised at the sudden* and mysterious language, iccompanied by the removal of the servants. ‘ Mr. Polk, I want your horse and carriage for 1 time,’ said Sanders. * Certainly, .Mr. Sanders, if you want them.’ ‘ Mr. Polk,’ said George, ‘ I do not appear be ore you in any ordinary character to-day. I am lothed with higher authority ; I am an Emissa y-’ The tone aud manner indicated something earful—perhaps the arrest'of his host. 11 am an emissary,’ repeated Mr. Sanders, peaking iu very large capitals, ‘ from This State >f Kentucky, and hope to be received as such, ['be fact is,’ continued he, coming down to the r*voI ftf familv rorenflfm • T luff fha Pn\ri. ional Government of Kentucky a mile or so lack, on foot, finding its way southwardly, and I lemand your horses and carriage in the name of hat noble State.’ Of course the carriage was harnessed up at ince, and Mr. Sanders proceeded to bring the provisional Government to Mr. Polk’s house. How shall we describe this party ? The Hon. Jeorge W. Johnson, as much of a Clay man as he sacred soil of Kentucky could afford, bat still ireserving his. light and active step ; McKee, ate of the Courier, following; Walter N. flald rman, with all his industry and perseverance, rying to keep np with his associate; and Willis i. Machen, a vigorous, active, slightly sullen. >ut in earnest, with eveiy boot he drew oat of he snowy, muddy soil, giving a groan of fatigue, magine them safely ensconced at Mr. Folk’s, on heir road South. ‘ Mr. Sanders,’ said the Governor, with digni ied sauvity, after the walnuts and wine ‘claimed o be an acquaintance of yours, and we were very ;lad to send him forward.’ The Hon. Governor maintained throughout hut easy, self possessed manner which charac ■erizes the gentleman. The Emissary—for he onght to be known—1 shortly after suggested to the Provisional Gov srnraent that he was “ broke,” and wished to re present the Seventh Congressional District of Kentucky—that is, the Louisville District, ‘ for,’ laid he, in bis persuasive, confidential tones, that is the poly way I know of a man without money to get to Richmond.’ A session was at once held of the State Conn si), and It is oar pleasure to record that Mr. Sad lers is now authorized by the Provisional Gov ernment to proceed to Richmond and represent pur interest in the rebel Congress, vice H. W. Brace, removed orresigned. 'Mr. Polk at this time addressed the new Con pressman, saying that he had a particular favor to ask- ‘ Bill,’ said George to his host, speaking pat of a fall heart and a full chest, ‘ Bill, yon are » boy after my own heart; whatever request you make I grant.’ * It is only a trifle,’ said Mr. Polk, ‘ which you can easily grant, and which will please yon.’ 1 It is granted,’ interrupted the grateful Sanders ‘ I may be arrested,’ contin ued Mr. Polk, within a few minutes, for disagree ing with some measures which Governor Harris has nrged upon the people.’ * Never mind that,’ said the impetuous Sanders, ‘ I’ll sthnd by you.’ * All I want,’ continued Mr. Polk, ‘ is for you to return to Nashville as a hostage for my xcife and family.' ‘Bill Polk,’ said George, gravely-but firmly, • yon are a man I love ; I love you, and I love your wife and family; but if ever I go back to Nashville, may 1 be d—d.' Of conrse there was ao reply to this and the redoubtable George and the Provisional Gov ernment soon went their way rejoicing. Sick Hbidachi—Is sickness at stomach, n tendency to vomit, combined with pain in aomn part of the bead, generally in the left side. It is cansed by there being too mnch bile in the system, from the fact that this bile is manufac tured too rapidly, or is not worked out of the system fast enough by steady, active exercise.— Hence sedentary persons, those who do not walk about a great deal, but are seated iu the house nearly all the time, are almost exclusively, the victims of this distressing malady. It usually begins soon after waking up in the morning, and lasts a day or two, or more. There are mauy causes; the most frequent is, derangement of the stomach by late and hearty suppers; by eat ing too much after a regular meal, (five hours should, at least, intervene ;) eaticg after one iB conscious of having had enough ; eating too mnch of any favorite dish ; eating something which the stomach cannot digest, or sour the stomach. Any of these things may induce sick head ache ; all of them cau be avoided. Over fatigue, or great mental emotion of any kind, or severe meutul application, have brought on sick head ache, of the most distressing character, in an hour ; it is caused by indulgence in spiritous liquors. When a person has the headache, there is no appetite ; the very sight of food is hateful; the tongue is furred; the feet and bands are cold, and there is a feeling of universal discomfort* with an utter indisposition to do any thing what ever. A glass of warm water, iuto which has been rapidly stirred a tea spoon each of salt and kitchen mustard, by causing instantaneous vom iting, empties the stomach of the bile or undi gested sour food, and a grateful relief is often experienced on the spot; and rest, with a few Ilnill'O f uillllirl KofnAnkinn, nlnnn ik* i _-7 --O , VV...J7.V.VU cure, especially if the principal part of the next day or two is spent in mental diversion and out door exercises, not eating an atom of food (but drinking freely of c.old water or hot teas) until you I'eel as if a piece of plain, cold bread and butter would “ taste really good.” Nine times in ten the cause of sick headache is in the fact, that the stomach was not able to digest the food last introduced into it, either from its having been unsuitable, or excessive in quantity. When the stomach is weak, a spoonful of the mildest, blandest food would cause an attack of sick head ache, when ten times the amount might have been taken in health, not only with impunity but with positive advantage. Those who are “ subject to sick headache” eat too much and exercise too little, and have cold feet and constipation. A diet of cold bread and butter, and ripe fruit or berries, with moderate continuous exercise in the open air, sufficient io keep up a very gentle perspiration, would, of themselves, cure almost every case within thirty six hours.—Dr. Hall. ___ A Good Story.—A very good story is told at the expense of Col. J. K. Comstock, who for many years was widely known as the “ prince of landlords”— and proprietor of the Olean House, Clean, New York. Many years ago Comstock was “ legally served” for violating the liceuse law. The trial was had at Portville, and the justice, after hearing the proofs, entered up a judgement against the “ host” of the Olean House. Of course John was “ hopping mad.”— He would carry it up and blow judgement to “-?” Hon. Benj. Chamberlin was the first Judge of the county—and shortly after the events above partially narrated, the Judge put up for a night with Col. Comstock. After sup per John unburdened himself to Judge Cham berlain, relating very minutely, the circumstan ces attending his conviction at Portville, &c.— The J udge blandly, But strongly urged John to carry the suit up to tbo Common Pleas—“ there you are pretty sure to have justice done ye!”— Having satisfied himself that Judge Chamber lain would do him justice, Col. Comstock direc ted his Attorney to appeal the case to the Com mon Pleas of the County. In due time the case was called, Judge Chamberlain presiding, who, upon hearing the proofs, arguments, allegations, &c., promptly affirmed the judgment of- the Jus tice’s Court, to the utter confounding of Col. Comstock’s attorney, who had anticipated an easy victory for hid client. Not long after this, J udge Chamberlain called again at the Olean House, and Col. Comstock was, of course, glad to see him. In the evening, “ mine host,” three or four times sought to bring up his liquor case, but the Judge evaded it, until Comstock bolted right on to it thus : Judge, you remember my liquor suit?" “ Oh yes, John, very well,” replied the Judge. “ You advised me to carry it up to your Court, didn't you, Judge? ” said Comstock. “ Yes, I did, John,” said the Judge, “ for I wanted to see you fairly dealt with.” “ The deuce you did 1 but you beat me though didn’t you ?” inquired Comstock in his peculiar ijr ocui^uiii” mail urn. “Yes, John,” said the Judge, looking Com stock very seriously in the face, “ The fact is, John, your liquor for the past year has been so confoundedly poor that I had'nt the courage to reverse the judgment I” John was silently satisfied, and has never car ried np any more liquor suits.

At the recent meeting at Nashville, at ^ich Andy Johnson made a speech, Parson Brownlow spoke. We give his speech in foil >— Gentlemen : I am in a sad plight .to ,M* much of interest—too thoroughly incapacitated to do justice to you or myself. My throat has been disordered for the past three yhars, and I have been compelled to almost abandon public speaking. Last December I was thrust tritoim uncomfortable and disagreeable jail—for whatT treason / Treason to the bogus Confederacy*; and the proofs of that treason wen articles which appeared in the Knoxville Whig in May Inst, when the State of Tennessee was a member of the imperishable Unioa. At the expiration of four weeks, I became a victim of the typhoid fever, and was removed to. a room in a ament dwelling, and a guard of seven men left’ me company. I subsequently became so week AM I could not turn over in my bed, and the guaed was increased to twelve men, for fear t should suddenly recover and run away to Ksatao||y. Becoming convalescent in a measure, I was to moved to my former place of confinement. One day I was visited by some Confederate officer*, who remarked, “ Brownlow, you should not be here. Take the oath of allegiance to the Con federate Government, which will not only entitle you to a speedy release, but ensure your protec tion.” “ Sir!” said I, “ before I would take the oath to support such a hell-forsaken institution, I would suffer myself to rot or die with old age.’’ Why, my friends, these demagogues actually boast that the Lord is upon their side, and de clare that God Almighty is assisting them in the furtherance of the nefarious project. In Knox ville and surrounding localities a short time since, daily prayer meetings were held; wherein the Almighty was beseeched to raise Lincoln’s block adk, and to hnrl destruction against the Burn side Expedition. Their prayers were partly an swered. The blockade at Roanoke Island was most effectually raised, a reciprocal of their sa crilege divinely tendered. Gentlemen, I am no Abolitionist; I applaud no sectional doctrines. I am a Southern man, and all my relatives and interests are thoroughly identified with the South and Southern institu tions. I was born in the Old Dominion, my pa rents were born in Virginia, and they and their antecedents were all slaveholders. Let me as sure you that the South has suffered no infringe ment upon her institutions. The slavery ques uon was actually uo pretext tor this unholy, un righteous conflict. Twelve Senators from the Cotton States, who had sworn to preserve invio late the Constitution framed by our forefathers, plotted treason at night, a fit time for such a crime, and telegraphed to their States dispatches advising them to pass ordinances for secession. Yes, gentlemen, twelve Senators swore ailbfti ante in the day-time, and unswore it at night. A short time since, I was called upon by a little Jew, who, I believe, is the Secretary of Wa^of the bogus Confederacy. lie threatened to hang me, and I expected ilo more mercy from him than was shown by his illustrious predecessors toward Jesus Christ. I entered into a long cor* respondence with this specimen of expiring hu manity; but, from mercy or forgetfulness on their part, I was permitted to depart with all my documents in my little valise, which I hope to publish at no distant day. Gentlemen, when I started on my perilous journey, I was tore distressed in mind, and exceedingly so in body; but the moment my eyes encountered the pick ets of the Union army, my depression decreased, and returning health seemed suddenly to invigo rate my physical constitution. Gentlemen, secession is played out; the dog is dead ; the child is born, and his name is Jefl.

Taylor ys. Masox.—The elegant Miss Ma son, daughter of a former President of tho Chem ical Bank in- who had made a splendid fortune as an enterprising draper and tailor, ap penred at a magnificent entertainment in royal apparel. With that fastidious exclusiveness for which the latest comers into fashionable cir cles are the most remarkable, she refused va rious offers of introduction, as she did not wish to extend the inumber of her acquaintances— her friends were few and very select.” The beautiful Miss Taylor, radiant withgood natured smiles, and once well acquainted with Miss Mason when they went to the public school in William street together, noticed the hauteur of her ancient friend who was determined not to recognize one who only reminded her of hor former Tow estate. Bat Miss Taylor, the rogue, as clever as she was pretty, determined to bring her with a short turn, and not anbmit to baing snubbed by ono whose ancestral associations were no better than her own. Watching bar chance when the haughty lady waa in the midel of her set, Misa Taylor walked op, and with smiles of winning sweetness, remarked :— " I have been thinking, my dear Mian Mason that we onght to exchange names.” “ Why, indeed!” “ Because my name is Taylor, and my father was a mason and your name is Maaon, hut yoar father was a tailor.” There was a scene then, bnt there was no help for it.

Bonner, we have an account of re markable power possessed by the eagle of in stantaneously arresifhg himself while dropping through the air, at a certain spot, with folded wings, even when descending from a height of three or four thousand feet “ When circling ao high up that he shows hot as n dot, he will sud denly close both wings, and falling like an mv lite, pass through the intervening space in a few seconds’ time. With a burst his broad pin ions are again unfolded; his downward progress is arrested, and he sweeps away horizontally, smoothly and without effort. He baa been seen to do this when carrying a sheep of twenty-six pounds weight in his talons, and Rom ao giidye height that both the eagle and his booty were not larger than a sparrow. It wu directly over a well of rock in which the eyrie was built: and while the speck hi the clouds was being examin ed, and doubts being entertained as to tho par. sibihty of its being an eagle, down ha came headlong, every instant increasing in size, when, in passing the precipice, oat flew bis mighty wings i the sheep was fligig into the nest, and on the magnificent creature moved, calmly and unflurried, as a bark sails gently down the stream of theriTer. . * i m W ■ — Powder Mancfactoet.—A powder manufac tory is to be started in California by a company which has jnst been incorporated with a capital w stock of #100,000.
