WOOD-LAWN RETREAT.
rpil K eubscriberinvites the attention ol the pub
-1 lie !o this place ol entertainment. It is de
sigsej solely tor ladies and gentlemen, and no
ajr..»-?tnentsare practiced there, which are unfit tor
tie ob«erva ion ot ladies. It does not become him
to »ueak of the dinners which he can furnish at the
sr. notice, ihougb he has at all times, all the
luxuries that the Richmond market and the country
round tae city can afford; nor of his wines, though
he challenges comparison with any cellar in Vir
gin. h ; nor of the recreations and amusements which
t;s guetts wi:l find there, though they areasnumer
cus »s they are innocent; nor of the accommoda
tions, natural and artificial, which the Retreat af
fords. Ail he wishes is, that the public will come
arid »ee, and if they do not say, that it is the very
place the town has always wanted, and situated at
the very distance at which it ought to be situated,
he be willing to acknowledge that he has de
ceived himseif, and thereby cheated others. It is
at the proper distHiice, tor it is three miles from
towr.; it is in the proper situation, for it is on the
Kri oke Turnpike, a fine carriage road, it is proper
ly fixed, tor the rooms are on the most approved
ni dern scalc for convenience, and fitted with a
luxury almost unknown ;n the country. But my
description can satisfy no body. Come and see for
yourselves.

Rumor begins to point to the approaching
fete, on the 15th of August, wilh the same
omen it did to the 10th of May, as a day on
which some great coup d'etat may be attempt
ed. Gen. Schramm, former Minister of War,
Gen.Gastelluue, Commander in Chief at Lyons,
Gen. St. Arnaud and Gen. Mograu are spoken
ol as likely, on that day, to be appointed
Marshals of France. A report is also in cir
culation that a certain number of the repre
sentatives, who were exiled alter the events of
2d ol December, will be allowed to return to
France on the same occasion. Amongst
others spoken of is Victor Hugo. It is also
said that several more members of the Moun
tain party are prepared to become supporters
of the preseut Government.
The President has pardoned or commuted
the punishment of ninety-one political prison
ers, sentenced in the mixed commission in the
leraull.
The Government has exempted the clergy
from taking the usual oath of ullegiance.
A rumor that Government was about to seize
the estates ot Arc and Chateuuvillain, belong
ing to the Prince de Joiuwlle, is contradicted
by the Echo du Feuple of Chaumoat. The
properties of Joinville and Saint Dizier are,
however, to betaken possesion of. M. Bocher,
administrator of the Orleans property, who
was condemned lo a fine of 500 francs and a
month's imprisonment for circulating docu
ments having reference to ihe confiscation

the public forests, a measure which the people
determined to prevent. The matter ended in

both sides. Reinforcements of soldiers soon
arrived from Savona, and quiet was restored.

"But ye can't Vote."—Great was the
amazement and dismay among the Irish labor
ers when the steam .shovels were first »>ut into
operation on a certain section of the Vermont
Central Railroad, and one of the sturdier of the
Hibernians, after gazing at his huge rival for a
few moments, thus apostrophised the enemy:
'• Well, faith, ye are a big divil of a baste, and
mighty stroug* 111 the arrjins; may be, now,ye
think yersell as (nod SS au Irishman, but
(with a look of iueliable contemptjd n
your sow I, ye can't vote!"—Botton rost.

this, Sons and Daughters of Virginia n!?7,
cannot have been told yo„, for^£ wil £ o 'j
would have roused your feelings into M, io £
and we should have been spared this ,£££
cboly announcement.
In passing through Fredericksburg, a few
days past, 1 learnt that the Monument gen
erously dedicated to this interesting individual
by fiurrowsof New York, has not yet receiv
ed its capstone, which is Iving near it, and ap
pears deserted and left to full into ruin.
The individual who generously commenced
an<l carried on the work so far, I un lerstand,
failed in his pecuniary means to complete the
work, and we may presume that he received
no friendly aid to overcome the difficulty.—
Where is the chivalry of Virginia, that will
not come to the rescue? Is there no one to tak«
up the subject, and spare Virginia the melan
choly reflection of the neglect ol .her sons and
daughters, in fulfilling a sacred trust? Let
the stranger, as he passes by the scene of thia
Monument, not have to mourn the ingratitude
of the Stat .
1 appeal loyou, Messrs. Editors, to bring
this subject to the attention of Virginia's sons
and daughters—the latter especially, for
the subject comes home to their finer feel
ings; and it will be lo their Honor to
capstone on this Monument, and complete
the work commenced by a generous New
Yorker, whose admiration of this daughter of
Virginia, induced him to undertake the rearing
and dedicating of this Monument to her. The
appeal, then, is to the daughters of Virgi
nia, and with you, Messrs. Editors, I leave
the subject, trusting that you will recommend
it to their attention; and induce immediate ac
tion in the premises.
Accomplished at last.—lt is well known
that there is no word iu the English language
to rhyme with "mouth." Confident of this, a
gentleman recently asserted among several
of his friends, that with all their boasted in
genuity, there was not one of them who could
produce a ryhme to "month." A grave indi
vidual present, immediately drew Forth a pen
cil, and wrote the following, which, on being
read publicly, brought down the house, and
the grave individual returned his pencil amidst
a cloud of dust.

Devoured by a Shark.—The other night
one of the men oil bourd the U.S. ship Penn
sylvania attempted to make his escape from
the service by plunging overboard in expecta
tion of reaching the shore in safety. The poor
fellow hud scarcely, however, touched the wa«
ter, when he was sniz°<l by a large Shark and
speedily dispatched. His cries for help are re_
presented as being piteous in the extreme, but
before the boats could get to his assistance he
wus destroyed by the voracious monster of the
deep. It is said thut a number of these fish are
in our waters, having followed the Cyane when
she came in trom sea, with several men upon
her sick list—their instinct, when there is dis„
ease on shipboard, prompting them to pursue
in the wake in hopes of prey. Sfuch sagacity is
truly wonderful.—Norfolk At gut.
Merit and Good Fortune.—A modest
youth started one morning early to crosn the
great valley of human life for the temple of
fame. He was alone. The path was at first
green, easy, and no difficulties : but he had not
gone far till a thousand thickets and bushes
intervened. He lost his way sometimes in a
wood, and at other limes was beguiled by the I
carolling of singing birds. Modesty at first
fell in wiih Merit by ihe way, but they couJd
pot get on together. Every obstacle started
Modesty, and mode him give up in despair.
A pert young fellow came up to Merit, and
whispered to him—"Modesty is a fool—he'll
lead you astray; I'll go with you." "What is
your name?" asked Merit. "Some call me
Impudence, but 1 was christened Assurance."
Merit went on remarkably well for a few hours,
but he soon found that the company he got in
to was very low, noisy and disagreeable. At
last, Impudence became very saucy, and abus
ed Merit. Merit quitted the fellow, and wan
dered a long time in a wild wood without
knowing where he was. A middle-aged lady
callrd Good Fortune, saw Merit,look him by
he hand, and in a few hours, conducted him
o the great temple of fame.
Ccba.—By the last arrival from Cuba, we
rrceivfd a small {Hinted sheet, entitled "La
Vujs del Pueblo, Organ de lndependencia." It
id full of revolutionary sentiments, and we are
told tliat in spite of all the efforts of the go
vernment and police, copies of it are scattered
everywhere in town and country, find their
way to the public «.tikes, and even to the pri
vate residence of the Captaio General. The
government has offered a reward of $3000 for
the apprehension of uuy one connected with
the printing or circulation of this sheet, (two
numbers of which have been issued) hut with
out success. This shows that there is either
a reiunrkable tact on the part of the publish
ers and their agents in conducting theirbusi
ness, or else thut there is a prevalent sentiment
in the hearts of the people adverse to the be
trayal of the parlies implicated. If the latter
supposition be correct, the end is not yet.—iV.

Military Moteme.nts on the Plains.—
The Independence (Mo.) Messenger says:
"We learn that our apprehensions with re
gard to the conduct ol some of the Indian tribes
near Fort Atkinson (the Apaches particularly)
are not illjounded. An express reached Fort
Leavenworth a week or so since which caused
a diversion of the troops from their intended
couise. The rifles and one or two companies
of dragoons have been taken from the Fort
Lnratnii' route, and ordered to Fort Atkinson,
and points beyond, it necessary, at once, the
Indians, it seems, in consequence of some mis
understanding, have threatened to destroy the
Fost on the Arkansas, and commit other ecu
of a hostile nature. By the manner in which
the troops are hurrying on, we thiok they will
reach the plains at the desired time, and do
sincerely trust that their presence may do
■owe good. Our Santa Fe mail men have some
time since told us of the threatening bearing of
the Indians, but we never placed much reli
ance on the repot ts, thinking that it arose from
some little trouble that would aoon be re
uiored.*'
