H" Some man, from a considerable way down East, has invented what he calls the "Patent Never-failing Garden-Preserver, or Hi-n-Wnlker." The Invention consists of a small instrument, something like a spur, only considerably longer, which is attached to the bind part of the hen's leg, pointing at the angle of lorty-five degrees towards the ground. When the hen, with this instru ment on her legs, enters the garden in the effing alter the seeds and puts her foot for vard tOKcrntch, the "walker" catches in the ground snd forces her forward; snd thus she la walked In her efforts to scratch, entirely out of the garden.

We observe that certain ol ourcotempora ries have taken up, in a humorous way, the assumption of the possibility which some of our friends advanced a week ago, that in time to come, the non-appearance of the great Comet, Charlea V. would lead to the aettled conviction that the prophecy of certain crazy mvana of Europe that the comet would strike the earth on the I3th of June last, or there about, had been verfied by the singular phe nomena witnessed in this and the middle States, snd, to a eeitain extent, all over the cuontry. We think the comet struck, according to prediction, and did its work unseen, except by comparatively few individuals. And the unparalleled tornadoes, or whatever else you please to call them, In this and other States, together with the singular weather which haa Hvvii4 for many daya paat,luiwiaf dis turbed state of tlie electric current, are eve drnce to support our theory. If, as is generally admitted, enmeta are visi ble holding; or If, ss more minutely stated by Herschel, who gives his reasons for the faith that waa in him, some comets are solid bodiea, others nebulous, and others still only most rarely gaseous in which latter e-'tegnry Charles V would come there is no palpable reason why, coming head on instead of tail foremost, we should notVrive at the con- cluaion that we have been hit, "fair and square," by thia celestial vngrsnt, whose head is "nothing "and in so much whose tail is bis head, and of course nothing also. The phenomena, and the effects of the phenomena in thia State on the I3th instant, have no parallel in the annala of atmospheric curiosities and powers, as manifest in the singular luminous appearance of the cloud, and in the fact of a child being stripped of its clothing without being injured, and at a time when there was no appearance of electrical actions, together with s thousand other mar vels of the occasion, entirely unaccountable except upon the assumption of the furious action of elements lighter than the atmos phere, pliable as nothing at all in contact with solids, but swift as lightning." , Cuming upon us in daytime, at the rate of hundreds of thousands of miles in an hour, sn sggregste of bankrupt elements many times lighter than our atmosphere, only luminous by borrowing the raya of the sun, which are so many times more vivid in our atmosphere than in its elements, there is no rational rena. on why it might not have crossed the earth's orbit snd. waated its lury Upon our innocent planet without our having marked ila ap proach except in ita meterological effect. mat approach, however, oy aia-.uroing me current of our system, would have produced remarkable effects for the lime and aeaaon. We hnve had those lemsrkable effects, as everybody knowa. Depend upon it, the comet haa struck. This decides one bet. Before we can decide another, we must wait a cou ple of centuries or ao to aee whether it will strike again. N. Y. Times. fcjgrThe "retired physician," who adver tises himself in the papers ss Dr. H.

The days of Salem witchcraft are not yet reached there, but almost, and the very Spiritualism prospers, nnd all other isms, among our New England population, which seems to indicate a return of the Salem scenes, and the oays of Mrs. Hutchinson & Co. What's to be done with such a brain, pop py-like, all running to seed? When it de velopes itself upon matter and machinery, that mind becomes genius, hut when it runs upon "epirit," "eocial" or "mind,' it is as near infidelity in everything as anything can well be that is not really infidel. Suc cessful In turning a lath, or making useful a waterfall, omnipotent over wood, and brass, snd iron, it fancie- itaelf to be just ss om nipotent over mind ss over matter, and hence, in New England, faith is failing, rev erence is gone, precedents are little or noth ing, experience is a mockery. Lven the Deity is doubted, if Deity s scriptures comport not with Yankee definitions.

The Washington correspondent of the "New Orlesna Delta" a paper which certain ly cannot be accused of the smallest symputhy with the American Party furnishea the fol lowing succinct snd apparently candid account of the recent Riot in Waahing'on ss detailed under oath, before the inquest on the bodies of the killed held by the City Coroner. We invite the close attention of oor neighbor of the "Intelligencer'' and all other readers, who prefer Truth to Prejudice and mere . Party Triumphs, to this statement of the "Delta's" Correspondent ; Washington, June 11 .1857. Editors of the Delta: The rumore and re ports and newspaper statements here about our election riot have been so various and conflicting, and deeming truth in such to be an important thing to lay before the puhlic, I would not send my letter until the best evi dence had heen given under oath before the Coroner s inquests. From that testimony, it turns out to have been pretty much a family affair. The sub stance, of the testinvny is this: At the uipei precinct of Fourth Ward, while the voters were standing in a line one behind another to take turns at the ballot box, juat at the en trance of the narrow plank passage, which admitted one person only to move up to the box, some persons no one knows who be gan to iiuah others. This led to resistance, of course, and in a minute the line waa broken and a general row was r ging between Know. Nothings nnd Anti Know Nothing. Brick bats and atones were thrown,, some pistols were fired, snd one man is said to have been wounded, the board passage to the ballot-box was torn away, and one of the election judges, it is said, was struck in the wrist with a pistol ball. This was about ten o'clock. In about twenty minutes all was quiet and the voting going on as orderly as it was before the dis turbance began. , At the commencement of this disturbance some one ran for the Mayor nboui half a mile who wrote a letter to the President Baking for a force of United States troops. This was diapntched to the President n mile and a half-w ho sent for the Secretary of the Navy, and after ror.ultation an order was made out for a detachment of marines from the Barracks at the Nnvv Yard, three miles from the President's house. By this time the disturbance was at an end. On receiving this order carried by the Mayor, or fent, to Col, Henderson a hundred and ten men were sent from the Marine Barracks to the scene of difficulty, nnder the control of the Mayor. When they reached that place they found the people voting quietly; the disturbance having subsided about two hours before their arrival They learned, how ever, that near to that place at the east end of the Northern Liberties' Market House a number of persons were assembled with a little swivel, all in full view. The Marines wefe ordered to charge them with bayonets and take the pieoe. (It was now 1 o'clock.) They did ao; they who had possessed it abandoning It on tne aj- the piece they returned to the position whence lhe moved In the charge and formed into a hollow aqnare. Then it was that they were ordered to fire. Four itnesaes in the first inquest iirore positively that they heard the Mayor give the order, nnd fourteen that it teas after tht taking of the little gun.d I hat th. re bad been no firing and no disturbance what ever for two hours preceding that action; that, between the taking of the little gun and tne firing by the Marines, mere wamn provocation whatever civen. The ndvocntes of the Mayor deny thia; not on oath, it is true; but they affirm that the Marines were assailed, nhuxed, fired upon, and wounded one or two by the ruffians, violators of lw and order, and thnt they only returned the file of those scoundrels "P'ng Uglies.'" die, nnd that no good ritizen C'in regret the chastisi'nient they received, awful ns it was aome seven or eight having been killed on the spot .and more than twenty wounded, some ol whom hnve died since. But there is one circumstance which they do not tell, and which none of our city pa Ders has disclosed. It is thi: with one single exception, every one of those killed and wound ed hv the firing of the murines was ol the Ami-Knnw Nothine pnrrv. and all but one citizens nl Washington ! One Know Nothing was badly wounded in the arm. It was his place of voting, and he was standing near the marines, not drerming of danger unarmed, ouiet near his place of business, and not J . 1 . .L . . I J' having taken any pari wnnu ver m inenisiur. bance. He is a mnn of good character and rpectihility. It in. indeed, remarkable that the Mnilnes should bava poured Iheir volleys into the ranks of "Plug Uglies" and "rnflv'n Know- Nothings," and hit none of them; hut. on the contrary, should have a n ana wounaca or.ly the ewmt'e of those they supposed they were shooting. ' Our citv papers alleagen inn, a oann or "ruffians" from Baltimore, calling themselves "Plug Ujliea!" came here and were the nil- thors of the diatnrnance ano mm u wna uiejr who assailed the Marines snd received so se vere s rhsstisement for thir villainy.' If thia statement were true. It would make these "Ping Uglies" the moat extraordinary people that ever existeo, ior our -nir my r-olioe was nnahle to e dehor even to aee die tlnetly a aingle one of them; and they seem to have had the power, on being shot, of trsnsforming themselves Into well known citizens of Washington ana -Ann-ivnow- Nolblngs." For. I state emphatically una positively thst, according to the best evidence, one Baltimorean only, Mr. Dlrymi'le, was shot by the marinea,and he Is admitted on all anda to have bean a Democrat, au ine others were well known citizens or wasn- ington. ' . . This statement ia made from the boat evl dence that has been given. And aa some may think anch a statement annum o on tne r..n.,n.iliilitv of a proper name, I have to re- qneat thst vou will give my proper name to anv one who shall aak it of ymi. I would snv, in addition to tne loregomg, thai the reaaon why an impartial "I1'".""' has not appeared In any Pper published in this city (si that twrv one of them is devoir to the "Anti.Knowrfolhina" paV- a w,n ""' publish avything that reflects upon thnt parly; and an impartial statement of those occurrences must necessarily do so. Neither would a re n...u. r . .'f ihna naners tpriM down th testimony which wss given under oath before the Coroner, either of Know-Nothings or of Anti-Know-Nothinga. The lime swiroi bronghtto the market house by J gang of young men snd bov at the Navy Yard who, eeelnr the marines torn out, ran to ine ore engine house and dragged It out and came along the way in company with the marines whether Know.Nothings or Anti-Know. Nothings I am nnahle to say, ss no d. finite testimony has been given on that point; but, from the fact that they were paased on the road by the Miirkes, snd came along after wards in their rett sithnut motest-itinn, and those killed sndfovnded by the Marinee in connection with lie (ircutnatance of the cap ture of that tittle gun proving to be Anti Know Nothing,it would seem thst they must have belnnied .o that party. I will only add that threfe no stronger proof in support of the twy that a gang of "Plug Uglies" were ben Rom Baltimore, man mere is in enppor' of Ve other report that a band of "rnffi .ns," callag; themaelvea the "Bmpire Club," eme here frm the Eighth Ward In Baltimore, for the prpose of interrupting the election in our Fourb. Ward, which had be fore given a smal n'jorily for the American p irlv, in the hope, terehy, of preventing the election of an AmeC'n Alderman for that Ward, end eonsequntly securing for the "Anti Know-Notliins" s majority in that branch of the f Jity If gialature. But, really, there is no reliable ividence in support or eiiher. J Important Wfuknt in Regard to Central America The New York Tri bune of Wednesday tontains the following paragraph, which iaoflheuimportant-if-true" order: A European officer, apparently of a very superior military eduntion, is now actively engaged in different Sates of the Union in enlisting office rs for time unknown military purpose. Only nflfcei) of artillery snd engi neers ble to direct tht construction of for tiflcntions are wanttd. These enlistments are ninHn wild the osletsilla desirrn of forminr a standing srmy in Central America and Putin? that countrr in an ethclent stale nl defense against any fut re attack offillibua terera. According to statements made in connection with thrsa proceedings, the five repub ics or Central Am-ica are to be trans formed into one mtnatvky. The plan is to be earned out with the id of a political party in Mexico, anl the lan&ng of a milita ry force to be effected in one of the polls on the Mexican count south of Coatzocoal cos. The whole intrigue may e in connec tion with the movements 'of Santa Anns, though it would appear that tht immediate ilmution of the otticera to be enlisted is really Central America, and as it is known that the individual who is enlisiiof them has ately made a tour through tha state ol Guatemala. Decease or A Bkilliant Genius. Dr. Jno. Dunn, son of the lute Hon. George H. Dunn ol Indiana, died in New Orleans on the 9th instant. - Dr. Dunn Mas a man of more than ordinary ability. The New Albany Tribune says: "As a poet, as s painter, as physician, or as a man of science, he could have acquired a brilliant name in the world if he hud not wrecked his early prospects in the 'flowing bowl.' And vet, strange to say, no man has ever written more strongly against the use of intoxicating honors tlinii l)r.

"AN UNDIVIDED SOUTHr - Day dawns. The curtnin of night, with its solemn mysteries, is being slowly drswn, and the plot and characters of the future po litical drama aro beginning to be revealed and exhibited. . As yet that pint and these characters come before us in anch a "ouei lionable shape thst it is difficult to say wheth er their "intents art wicked or charitable." Time, the great arbiter of truth, can only tell whether the play will be Farce, Comedy or Tragedy whether the actors will be hissed or applauded on the stage, and whether the lust eventful scene that will end this strange hiatory is to be concluded by a sermon or a song. - The plot thickens. The prophetic, omin ous figures 1860, are being deciphered end the cabulistia words "An undivided South" is breaking opon the vision of the uninitiated into something like form, color and substance. Uncle Tom's Cabin Is to form the great attraction of the season and Cuff.-e, and Cuf fee only, is to figure in each swelling scene. CnfTee is to be the Hamlet of Hamlets. He Is to be the great political Emma Stan ley. He is to ssume every conceivable shape. The Black Republican snd his for eign free laborer, will represent him clothed in nakedness, fed only on cotton seed, steep ed in the mire of moral turpitude and mental degradation and driven to the field by the crack of the whip, and there overwnrked by aome merciless overseer. The Southern Fire-eater will of course, rush to the rescue and will inaist that Cuflee shall appear in an entire new character and dress. Cuflee im mediately steps out, better clothed, better fed nnd better housed than one half of those who have shed tears of bitterness over his fallen snd servile condition. Poor Cuflee stands aghast in the mean time, rolling around Ihe white of bis eyes and wondering why all this bother about one, who is happy nnd contented, free from prAsent care and fu ture anxiety aa to sickness and infirmi ties of age. Disguise it as they may, there are certain leadora, North and Houlh, who are anxious for party purposes, to force the country into a sectional issue, and thereby prepare the minds of the people for a dissolution of the Union on the slavery question. If such was not the fuct, w hy this constant appeal by the extreme Suuth-sacers about "an undivided Soul h?" One would suppose thst these sub limated Patriots, who are alone blessed with intellects to appreciate Democracy, are pur auing the very policy to weaken the Soutli and strengthen the Black Republicans on thia question. The last Presidential elec- 1 li fcaWU.jM. l hibit the comparative weakness of the South, without such Southern "aid and comfort." In one breath they directly intimate to these Black Republicans, that the South is divided on this question (which they know is I nine) and in the next, they advocate a policy which empties thej'iils and poor houses of Europe of s hulf million annually of their inmates, to swell the ranks of theae very Black Repub licans. We sak any man of common sense, of common love for his native Soutli, if this is either just, wise or patriotic. And to still further expose their rottenneas, they wish to ignore the great questions which lead direct ly to such diaaaters to the South, and talk continually of anch unmeaning sounds as 1860 "j4i undivided South," If the Sonth need saving, would it not be belter for theae Solon to tell us the source of the danger and the best way to avoid or meet thnt dangert Columbus Eng. Solemn and I'hagio Death. During the night of the storm on Sunday evenings scene occurred si a house in Green street of a character to render It ituiellihle upon the mind of a spectator. The morn! that it tenches is fearlul. A family was arnted around a table engaged in ordinary conver sation when a dispute among some of the childrei and young people took place. Word grew high, and the mother attempted to quell the diturlance. In turn, she was much- the oject of their anger, and while the heated blood was finding vent in words Ihe parent an se frnm her neat and once more in terposed. It w as of no avail, nnd the par ties nearly came to blows.

Consider this, then, my eon; snd look well to her ways whom thou wouldat love; for little will all else avail thee, if thou choos est not wisely the companion of thy bosom See yonder the maidens of Tinge. They deck themselves with the gems of Golconda and the rose of Kaahmire themselves more brilliant und beautiful; but uli! take not them to thy bosom; for the gem will grow dim, and the rose wither and naught remain to thee of all thou didat woo and win. Neither turn thyself to the proud one who vaunts herself on having scanned the piges of Vedas, snd fathomed the myateries of the holy temple. Woman was not born to w ield the sceptre, or direct the counsel; to reveal the mandates of Brains, or expound the sacred verses of Menu. ' Rather be it hers to support thee in grief and sooth thee in sickness; to rejoice in thy prosperity, nnd cling to thee In adversity. Reflect then my son, ere you ehooaest, nnd look to her ways whom thou wouldst make the wife of thy bosom. A wife! what a sacred name! what a re sponsible office! she must be tho unspotted sanctuary to which wearied man may flee from the crimes of the world, and feel that no sin dure enter there. A wife! she must he as pure ns the spirits around the Ever lasting Throne, thnl man may kneel to her, even in the adoration, and fuel nn nbiaenient. A wife! she must be the guardian angel of his footsteps on esrth, asd guide them to heaven; so firm in virtue Hint should he for n moment waver, she can yield him support, and replace him upon its firm foundation; no happy in conscious innocence, that when from the perplexities of the world be turns to his home, be may never find s frown where he sought a smile. Such my son, thou seekest in a wife; and reflect well ere tlmu chonsest. Open not thy bosom to the triRc; repose lint thy head on the brenat which nursetll envy and folly, and vanity. Hope not for obedi ence where the 'passions are untamed; nnd Tnaol not hunnr frnm har who hnnoretll not (he God that made her. Though thy place be next to the throne of princes, and the countenance of royalty beam upon thee though thy riches be s the perals of Omar, nnd thy name be honored from the east to the west little will it avail thee, if darkness and disappointment snd strife be in thine own habitation. There muit be passed thine hours of solitude or sickness and there thou must die. Reflect then, my son, ere thou choosest, nnd look well to her ways w hom thou wouldat love; for though thou be wise in other things little will It avail thee, if thou choosest not wisely the wife of thy bosom.

We think the umbrella can be taken as a very good test ot persona character. , The man who always takes an umbrella out with him is a csutioua fellow, who slmtaina from all aecolation, ia pretty sure to die rich. Tb man who is always leaving his umbrella be hind him Is one generslly Who makes no provision for the morrow. He la reck lea, thoughtless, always late for the train, leaves the street door open when he comes home late at night, and absent to such a degree to sesk ill of a baby In the presence of Ita mamma.! The men who Is always losing hia umbrella ia an unlucky dog, whose bills ar always protested, whose boot split, whoa gloves ersck, whose buttons are always com ing off, w.hose 'change' is sure to have some bad money in it. Be cautious how you lend s thousand pounds to such a man 1 The mao who is perpetually expressing a nervous anxiety shout hia umbrella, and wondering If it ia afe, Is full of meanness end low suspi cion, with whom it is best not to piny at cards nor drink a bottle of w me. He ia aura to suspect you are cheating him, or that you are drinking more than your share. Let hint be ever so rich, give not your daughter to him; he will undoubtedly take more care of his umbrella than of his wife. The uum wilh a cotton umbrella is either a philosopher or an economist. He defies the world and all ita fashionable prejudices, or else he does it be cause ilia cheaper to lose than a silk one. The man who goes to the horticultural fete without nn umbrella ia simply a fool, who richly deserves the ducking he gets. ( A Midnight ArrAnmoN.

Occurring ut the time when the fierce storm, wilh its heavy thunder and lurid lightening, was prevailing, the event assumed to many minds a supernatural chancier, nnd (hum were those even who loug'd for the day to come w ith trembling heata, lor all must bo aware that superstition and credulity are not yet banished from Ihe earlh. It was just ihe night for such a thing to happen, accor ding to all the established rules laid down for ghosts and demons to indu ge their fearful revels. In the morning, a locomotive containing an engineer and conductor came quietly by, und Hie people learned thai the ears they had seen were nothing more nor less than runaways They had been standing on the track at Knrtville; the high wind had atarted tnein, u iliey were-on a rlnwn grade,- all nt tempt to stop them after they hurl gut under wny, was useless; und so they went rushing along the incliid rails with gradually tie Ctlernting speed, till several miles distant coming upon a level, the force of their for ward motion wns exhausted, nnd they bought up at Alton, where the conductor found them uninjured. A very good ghott atory wus thus spoiled. ETEnNiTV. "Eternity has na grey hairs!"
