KMCkEKBOCKEREANA
We select the following from the Editor's
iu the June number of the Knicker
bocker :
Happening to gel a peep at a half written
book tiy our fiieitd Pvnnhuret, whose "Wan
.-ieriiiga and Ways of Thinking" are becoming
<■0 popular, we "conveyed" the following : ' 1
ri ni-iiiher to have been sent by my mother,
i ;i mission of consolation to Mia. Beddles,
ulio had just lost her husband,our farmer.—
U'l.at 1 beet r-member about her belote this
;:c«sion i*, tliut she had quantities of ducks,
~1 which she was very proud. She evidently
believed that no oilier birds knew what moult
meant; she thought her ducks, and they
aioi)'', committed this action. "Yes, Master
Hugh," sha used to say, "yes; Sir," wiih a
-iKiiis emphasis on the "Sir," "them ducks as
M u °ee tiiete, which the one that his tail turns
up is the drake ; well, them ducks changes
ih.-ir foliage regular every spring." Well,
beinj sent, when nine or ten years old, to cor;-
dole with »Uis. liedUles, 1 did not know exact
iv what to do. ' Mrs. Beddles," I said, "Main*
,*iu me down to sny how sorry she is that
Mr. Heddles is dead." "Oh, ho! yes, my
•Jear Master Hugh ; your mar is so good ; she,
:00, have lost a good husban', but nobody
leiii't know what 1 lost, he was sitch a good
purwider." I felt like laughing and crying at
;i;e same time, hs 1 said : "Yes, I know lie
wus a good provider, but (hat makes you glad
to think of now, don't it 1" "Yea, my dear;
•j! when one is all lonely so,and no particular
tiusiness for to toiler, one can't help a cryin'
.'ur liieui as is went to their long 'oraes, and as
sitch a good purwiders. And now he luys
;i,ere into the back kitchen, in his clean shirt
-lid drawers, and they ain't nobody to purwide
no more." Wfcen I had gone a little way, I
/i*li as if 1 had not done enough, and began to
ihiiik that il any body 1 loved was dead, 1
should besoiry to have them buried very soon;
Hid that suggesting another topic of consola*
lion, 1 went back, half opened the door, and
said: "Mrs. Beddles, don't you bury Mr.
Buddies so soon, i know that Mamma would
<ike to keep him with you as long as possible."
"lVs, Master Hugh," she answered,"! would
keep him, but it is sitch warm weather that
I'm afearil he'll spile !"
A friend gives us an amusing idea of "a
itaicii Judge" in the following sketcn :
"He was about to sentence a prisoner, and
mi looking around lor him, found him playing
chequers with his custodian, while the fore
•iiau of the jury was fast asleep. Replenishing
(lie ample judicial chuir with his broadcast
person, lie thus addressed the jury : 'Mister
voretnan and t'oder jurymans : Der brisoner,
Hans Vleckier, is vinished his game mit der
sheiifl', and has peat hiiu, but 1 shall dake
ijare he don't peat me. Hans has peen tried
Air murder pefore you, and you must pring in a
vardick, but il must pe 'cordin to de law. De
;;ian he kill't wasn kill't at all, as it was broved
he id in der jail at Morristown, lor sheep-steal
mg. i'ut dat is no madder. Der law says
»en dere ish a lout you give 'em to der bris
'iier ; put here der ish uo tout; you see der
prisoner ish guilty. Besides, he ish a great
iouler. 1 hut know'd him vifty year, and he
aatliu't tone a s'ditch of vork in all dat times ;
ind deie ish no oue debeuding upou him for
ieir liviu', and he ish no use to no pody. 1
'link ii would pe goot plans to hang him for de
example. I dink, Mr. Voremans, dat he petter
I pe hung next Fourt o'July, ns der militia ish
lodiaiu iu anoder gounty.and der would
pe no vun goiu' ou here !"
Ii shouiu be edded, to the credit of the jury,
ihat in spite of this "learned and impartial
:liarge," they acquitted the "brisoner," tind
ng him M Not46ll ilty, if he would leave the
•Siute."'
Sunn was in Bhiladelphia, on his first visit.
Consequently he hud rather a verdant look,
sud strolled down Chesnut street, wild as one
; ust caught. 0;i his devious route he was ac
costed by an exquisite of the first wuter, w ho,
!i <lding out a regalia, requested Sam to "be
kind enough to afford him a light."' Sam drew
itusell up to his full height, looked supercil
iously down upon his interrogator, and finally
implied : "Certainly,l sir, tobacco levels all
distinctions; light your cigar, sir!" and took
t hasty leave. So writes a friend, from whom
"more auon."
IMNGEK OK h.:\i.kH.NG to Ladies.—Oue of
!ie drollest occurrences in the annuls of gul
jutrv is related of (iibbon, the historian, who
was short 111 stature, and very fat. One day
oeing alone with tho beautiful Madame de
Crouzas, he dropped on his knee before her,
iuiJ made a declaration of love in the most
passionate terms. The astonished lady reject
"'l Ins suit, and requested hiui to rise. The
J washed hisioiian remained on his knees.—
'time, Mr. Gibbon, I beseech you, rise." Mr.
'jiiibon still kept his posture. "Mr. Gibbon
* v ill you have the goodness to get up ?" "Alas
madam," faltered the unlucky lover, "I can
"ol." He was too fat to regain his feet with
ui assistance. Madame de Crouzas rang the
'fil, and said to her servant, "Lift up Mr.
•jibbon."
'-"ekphayeu Himdelk.—During the preva
.cuce of the epidemic in Virginia, in 1849, the
negroes 011 the different plantations became
ireudlully alarmed, and thought they would
'■ertainly die with it. Among others, in one
•it ilif upper counties, w is a negro boy, who,
•''bwug beard his lather say that the cholera
w ;uld soon be along their way, left his work

THE DAILY DISPATCH?
The Phi Beta Kappa.—We perceive by
following, from the Norfolk Beacon, that
this ancient society has been revived in Wil
liam and Mary College:
The night before the commencement was
marked bv an event of much interest, the revi"
val of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. It was first
instituted in the College on the" sixth day of
December, 1776, and its branches have been
established in five other Colleges and Universi
ties, viz: Cambridge, Yale, Brown, Dartmouth
and Lnion. Its members at present exceed
one thousand, and its catalogue contains
the names of the most distinguished men of
this and other States. During the troubles of
the times in 1781, when it was apprehended
that the College would be dissolved, the Parent
Society held its last meeting, sealed up its
pers, and gave them in safe keeping to be pre
served for future use. In 1849, Mr. Short of
Philadelphia, the last President, and only sur
viving member, commissioned Professors Tot
ten and Smecd, now ot William and Mary,
but Alumni of Union College, and members
of the branch there established, to re-orga
nize the present society. They accordingly
procured the papers alluded to, and on the first
ot July, after a suspension of threescore yeurs
and ten, the Phi Beta Kappa was once more
in session. The sealed papers contained this
inscription:
44 The members present at the last meeting
of the Society thinking it advisable that the
papers should not be removed, determined to
deliver them into the hands of the College Stew
ard, to remain with him until the desired event
of the Society*B resurrection; and this deposit
they make, in the sure and certain hope that
the fraternity will one day rise to life everlast
ing and glory immortal."
May ihis hoped for day which has thus
dawned, brighten into all the splendor autici
pated by those literary seers, and renew and
prolong the salutary radiance which ripened
them for eminence and usefulness.
Mrs. Clay.—A correspondent at Wash
ington writes:—
"When Mr. Clay became Secretary of State,
Mrs. Clay resided here, and was universally
aJmiied for kindness and affability, and her
evening parties were rendered as agreeable by
her pleasing manners as by her brilliancy and
spirit. I remember an incident that occurred
when he had the duel with John Randolph.—
Aa he was returning from the ground, he ask
ed, anxiously, whether Mrs Clay knew what
had happened. He had informed her that he
was going out, and had kept it a seciet. Just
before his return, she heard it from a servant,
and, meeting him in the passage, threw her
arms aiound him, exclaiming, 'O, Harry! how
could you go without letting me know?' I
mention these circumstances in consequence
of the widely circulated statements, lately
made in letters from Washington, that Mrs
Clay never was in this city—where her illus
trious husband passed a iar|?e portion of his
lite, and established a name that is honored by
the whole civilized world."
Gabriel Villere, an esteemed citizen of
Louisiana, died in the Parish of St. Bernard
on the 6th. The Delta says:
To Major Yillere's devotion and intrepidity
New Orleans is largely indebted for its ulti"
mate safety, when, on the 23d December, 1814*
he was surprised in iiis own house by the Brit
ish vanguard, he leaped through a window of
the second story, madegood his escape through
a shower of bullets, and was the first man who
announced the enemy's presence to General
Jackson, who, on that same evening, with his
gallant bund, met and conquered the foe.
It is said that when the announcement was
made to General Jackson, he immediately
cried out, in a loud voice, to hia negro boy—
"Boh! bring me my boots. By the Eternal!
I''l fight them to-night."
The following, Irom the N. O. Fica
yune, represents a depth of depravity seldom
exceeded. No punishment is too bad for such
wretches.
Robbing the Bodies.—The bodies of the
uufurtunate victims of the explosion had been
nearly all rifled before they were received tin
board the Mobile yesterday. The pockets of
all were turned inside out. Human vultures
have been hovering round the scene of the
disaster, and the presence of death, and the
consciousness of the affliction of families to
whom each little memorial of the lost ones
would be as a mine of wealth, did not prevent
thein from plundering. The exccrable wreteh
es should be lashed out of society. We trust
that they may be discovered.
To make Mus<iijiToEs Leave.—Tie a piece
offhintiel or sponge to a thread made fast to
the top of the bedstead, wet the flannel or
sponge with camphorated spirits, and the mus
quitoes will leave the room-
Don't know whether the above is effectual
or not, but it is worth tryiug. We believe
however, that if the vile insects once get a taste
of human blood, all the camphor in the world
won't drive them away.
The valuable tract of land belonging to
the estate of the late Judge Douglass, near
Ciiarlestown, Virginia, was sold last week for
the sum of $58 55 per acre. Purchased by
Mr. F. W. Drew.
[jp Nothing could exceed the delight with
which the growing com in this vicinity re
ceived the late showers of ruin, it appears
to us that the season has been favorable, thus
far, to the growth of crops of every descrip
tion. Btiople are always complaining, how
ever, either of heal or cold. Can't help pity
ing them.
fcjjf Three persons were arrested in Cincin
nati on the 7th for manufacturing bogus
money. A considerable quantity of counter
feit dies, nnd some excellent moulds were
found in their possession.
The Whigs of Buffalo are making ar
rangements for a graud gathering at Niagara,
Falls, on the 27th of this month, the anniver
sary of the battle of Lundy's Lane.
kF* Daniel A. Quackenboss, a clerk in the
Merchant's Bank, Wall street, New York, has
been arrested and commuted to prison, for forg
ing a draft.
£3*° John S. Thrasher was complimented
by a public dinner, ill New Orleans, on Mon
day.
|y The Lynchburg Virginian is to be is
sued daily, early in August.
Another Nokth Carolina Diamond.—
We saw, a day or two ago, a diamond of the
first water, weighing four grains, found by Mr.
J. W. Arwood, of McDowell county, whilst
working a gold mine, about five and a half
miles west of Charlotte, on what is called the
l odd Branch. —Charlotte Whig.
RICHMOND, THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 15,1852.
Southside Railroad.—The following res
olution was passed at a meeting of the stock*
holders of this road, in Petersburg, on Tues
day:
Revolted, That the President und Directors,
(a majority of the whole BoarJ concurring)
be authorized to borrow for and on behalf of
this Company, for the purpose of completing
the road to Lynchburg, a sum not exceeding
$800,000. upon such terms, and payable, prin
cipal and interest, at such times, and at such
places, as to them may seem best, —and that
they be authorised to issue the bonds of the
companv for thesum so borrowed,with coupons
attached, signed by the President, and sealed
with the seal of this Company; and, as a secu
rity for the prompt and faithful payment of the
interest and principal of said bonds, they be
authorised to execute, in due and legal form, a
mortgage on all the property, works, &.C., of
the said Company.
A man lately started on a truck from the
foot of Plane No. 1, on »he Portage (Pa.)
Railroad, to go to Johnstown, followed closely
by a section boat. He seated himself on a keg
of powder, and let his truck run at a pietty
good gait. A mile or two below the plane, a
wagon loaded with wood, in hastening across
the track, dropped a cord wood piece, which
threw the truck off, and the man and powder
on thp track side—the powder bursting open
by the fall. The section boat passed over him,
literally crushing him to death; at the same
time, in striking, the truck, by some means or
other, ignited the powder, and the man was
completely blown up!
Revolutionary Relics.—The Ohio Elyri
an Courier says the indentical gun used bv
tilhan Allen, during his services in the revolu
tioiiarv war, is now in possession of N. H.Un
deihill. of that village. Also the gun used bv
(Jen. Wayne, and with which he made himself
so notorious in picking Indians from the tops
of trees, is now in a gun shop in that village to
be repaired.
Strong Attachment.—We heard lately re
peated the grounds of a strong attachment.—
A young and beautiful, but poor widow, was
about to marry a rich old widower. Her friends
wished to know what she was about to marry
hiin for. She feelingly replied: "Pure love,
I love the ground (meaning the farm probably)
on which he walks, and the very house in
which he lives."
Naval.—Orders have been received to fit
out with dispatch, the Razee independence,
the sloop-of-war Marion. and the schooner Dol
phin, all of which vessels are now lying at the
Navy Yard at New York.
It is supposed that the Independence is in
tended for the flag ship of thn Home Squadron;
the Marion (or the exploration of the River Am
azon, and the Dolphin for the Coast of Alrica.
—N. Y. Journal of Commerce.
The celebrated comedian, John Reeve, was
once accosted by an elderly female, with a bot
tle of gin in her hand. " Pray, sir, I beg your
pardon, is this the way to the work house?"—
John gave her a look of clerical dignity, and
pointing to the bottle said: 41 No, madam, but
that is!"
41 So there's another rupture of Mount Voci
ferous," said Mrs. Partington, as.she put up her
specs, 41 the paper tells us about the burning
lather running down the mountain, but it don't
tell how it got a fire."
Thunder Storm.—A severe thunder storm
occurred at Charlestown, Va., on Sunday.—
The Episcopal Church was struck by light
ning and slightly injured.
Mrs. Mowatt is playing, with great success,
at Louis* ille, Ky., showing that she is entirely
recovered from her late injuries.

For several month* I *u so Car
could not attend to my business. I berame 10 »e*k
that I was not able to sit up for more than «
hour at a time, when ( would be compelled to lie
down to gain strength I tried a dozen different
a deles, recommender to me as cuaec, bot received
no relief from any of them. My cough and weak
ness increased, and, in fact, 1 waa to tar gone, that
I seriously thought 1 should die, when I heard of
your valuable medicin', the Cedar Tar. I tried it,
and I had taken it but a few days before 1 found
freat relief. My appetite became so good that
could eat every thing waa put before me. I
would commend it to all afflicted like myself, as a
certain cure, tor I consider myself now pertectiy
well. Youra, respectfully,
