Senatokb. Of the members of the Senate during the Inst Congress, no less tlmn five have panned away since the first session commenced, to wit Messrs.

The Cashier of the Bunk of Charleston any it uluioat defies detection. Look out for it." (W As to the other' oppoaitinn member defeated in the South, and the general route of the whole Know Nothing party of that avction, the result ia to be rejoiced over. Such ia the language in which the Aboli tion correspondent of the New York Tribune announces the result of the recent elections in the South. It only confirms what we have all along maintained that the Free Boilers are anxious for the consolidation of all parlies in tho South into one. In thnt event the North would range itself into a grand opposition party, and the fitla of the South would be sealed. The evidences of this thicken all around us. On no other ground can we explain the delight with which Black Republicanism chuckles over Democratic victories in the South. Prolonged Absence No leave for a Second Marriage. It ia a vulgar and very dangerous error to suppose that any term of absence of one of two persons married will, while that parly is living, permit or We oilier msrryloH again. Thia misconception, but too fatally prevalent among the lower classes, has arisen from a clause in the statute relating to biga my, the 9 Geo. IV. c. 31, a. 22, which provide that no punishment therein enacted shall ex tend to any person marrying a second tilnt , whose husband or wife shall have been con tinually absent from such person for the spice of seven years then Inst past, and ahall not hnve been known by such person to be living within that time. Thus the party mar rying under these circumstances ia by thia clause certainly protected from a conviction for bigamy, and it consequent pains and penalties, but that ia all. The second mar riage will neverthelesa be absolutely void should the party absent turn out at any time, however long, to have beeu alive when it was contracted. Nothing but death or a divorce a vinculo matrimonii can sever a marriage once legally performed. What is Northern Democracy? H. B. Pavne, the Democratic candidate for Gover nor of Ohio, in accepting the Domination ia reported to have said: , "Under Mr. Buchanan's administration, Kansas, protected alike from New England and the South, is working out the peaceable fruila of righteousness. At a dav noi dis. taut or doubtful, as from the beginning has been predicted. Kansas will bs admitted into the galaxy of Slate with a Free Statu con stitution by the voles of her own puople, abolishing lorever slavery in her midst, thus furnishing an application of practical Demo emtio doctrines. This is a specimen of a Northern Demo crat who in an national, and whom Southern men are exhorted to rely upon. (I. B. Pavne ia as much the friend of the South aa any uinn in the North.

ATHENS, ELOQUENT EXTRACT THE UNION OF THE ATLANTIC WITH THE PA CIFIC, The magnificent project of uniting the At lantic Ocean with the Pacific, by railroad con nection, and of accomplishing in a few hours a journey across the breadth of the continent of North America, which formerly required months to effect, and of causing the commerce of the East to flow through the gates of our principal cities, is well calculated, although utilitarian scheme, to give the hue of poetry and romance to the speculations of those who are engaged in forwarding the great work. The idea ia so splendiiLaud great that even our most sober and sedate statesmen, who in general confine themselves to prosaic facts and figures, will insensibly, in their allusions to it, use the most oratorical and splendid il lustrations. When we contemplate the nd vantages and results thnt would flow from it, the changes that it would produce in all the great enterprises of life, it is not remarkable that it is a fine theme for forensic displaya. The classic and eloquent Keitt, a member of Conuress from South Carolina, in a late speech at Charleston, at a railroad celebration, handle.) the subject aa ably and beautifully as we have ever seen it dune. Hesuid: "The march of the States is onward and onward still nor can it pause until the sum is right over our heads; nor will the edict of Dunliny be met until the people of these re gions are bidden to a marriage feast grander than any spread upon the records of time. 'I he Pacific, vexed by storms, nnd restless upon his lonely, bachelor bed, for unrooted centuries, has sobbed to the rock bound coast the story of his baffled love; but American genius and American energy, like carrier pigeons, nre now bearins? the suitor's gentle plea over plain anil muuntain, over forest and city, and they soon will carry back the plighted njaiieu's vow of the blushing At lantic. Much have you, of the South and West, already done, but much still remains for you to do. The lordly Pacific, like an awakened giant, is stepping forth to demand and web come the bride he has already wooed and won, nnd it is for you to solemnize the mag nificent Hymen of the oceans with a claim of iron witnesses. When you have done this, you will have laid your hands upon the gates of the East, nnd the long procession of the trades will follow in your trackway to seize and hold the golden keys. The splendid commerce, which erstwhile enriched I uelies and Palmyra, Venice, Genoa and Holland, and which now plants the ureal commercial nerve of the world on the Exchange in London, will come to you a bidden guest. "Tho use of tropical productions is fast becoming n test of civilization, and they are rapidly elaborating themselves into the very elements of national grralnessand power.

Tho new projectile ia about tiie aize ol the Minnie hall; its penetrat iiiL' force is equal to the common ball. Ar rived in the animal's body it explodes like a bomb, and, of course, causes the sudden death of the animal. If shot into the lungs of an elephant for example, the ball in ex ploding disengages carbonic acid gas, and the an i Dial, which from it size might other wise survive for a short time, will suddenly fall asphyxiated. A few days ngo a pany of gentlemen accompanied M. Devisme to a horse slaughter-house in the environs of the city. There the new projectile was tried on live horses who were standing tied to a fence waiting to be shot. They were each shot in the lungs, the ball exploded, and the nn iiiial fell dead. The experiment was com. pletely satisfactory. Strange Infatuation. There is an in dividual residing in the neighborhood of Maple Root, New Jersey, by the name of Smith, who imagines thnt he ia two hun dred year old, although he does not yet number two score years. Yet every effort to disabuse his mind of this singulur lancy has thus far proved unavailing. Smith has main tained his present notion for three years, nnd talks of events, which he says he witnessed, which occurred long before he was born. Upon every other subject he is perfectly ra. tional, nnd in his business relations he is un commonly smart, lie says he will uut taste death, but is destined to live on until the end of time. -gr"On Saturday quite a scene occurred at the New York Hotel, a gentleman resid ing in the neighborhood being discovered by n wealthy down-town merchant on terms of loo great intimacy with his wife.

A person accustomed to a life of study, longs for ease and retirement; and when he has accomplished thi purpose, he find him- self wretched. We are acquainted with indi vidun's w hose early lives were passed in aclite business pursuits, and w ho, nt the age of forty, having acquired a competence, have re tired from business with the intention or passing the remainder of their days in leisure. For awhile everything Beemed pleasant, and they flattered themselves that they could now enioy life and be happy. But they had deceived themselves; their minds soon became restless and there was a vaat amount of time w hich they could "not occupy, and they hnve said that their happiest days were passed in business. The pleasure of relaxation can be known only to those who have regular and interest, ing occupation, and on this account continued relaxation becomes s weariness, and the mind become weary of being inactive, and on this ground we maintain that the greatest degree of real happiness nnd enjoyment is not realiz ed by the luxurious men of wealth, nor by the listless votary of fashion, but by the mid dle classes of society "ho along with the comforts of life have constnnt occupation, which m itself proves one of their many sources of happiness. From these facts we draw the following conclusion: That in order to be happy the mind must have some employment, but we would observe that it is not necessary for any person to make their occupation the aole end of their existence, and pursue it with sucn enemy as to shorten their live, but we be lieve thut occupation, with proper seasons of relaxation is conducive to nnd actually neces sary for the happiness and welfare of every human being, nod without it no one cau en joy life. tff Fun should be cultivated ns a fine art, for it is altogether a fine thing.

' Nice Honey in Glass Jars. Mr. B. A. Manchester, of Western New York, has probably the most accommodating family ot bees that nre known in this vicinity.

The New York Hur .UUiys: "If K ins is is admitted as n slave Suite right or wrong, the Northern Democracy will disappear from tho earth like a vapor; if alio is admitted as a free Stale, justly or unjustly, the result will be a split of the Southern Democracy und the organ ization of the secession wing as the nucleus of a rabid Southern sectional party. We lake it for granted that Kansas will cotne in us a free State, nnd the Southern sectional party indicated w ill be the first consequence. Thus, perhaps, as early n next summer we hall have a Southern sectional party, on the platform of the secessionists, bmnuht out up. on the course, while our Northern anti-slavery forces will unquestionably gather conli denco nnd boldness from the true Stale so lution of the Kansas test question." lt7The rule by which diamonds are val ued, is to multiply the square of the weight in carats, by forly dollars.

Riuht Ihere-away lay Bethany, and I could think it the radiance of the bursting tomb of Martha's brother. But the flush be came a clenm, a glow, nn opening heaven of deep, strong light that did not dnzzle nor bewilder.
