" touching picture from the last ' lUeak House," is not limited in r, ' n . on to the latitude of London. — T ', 3 , ,rr many mothers in this city, (ray* 5 ' :f y York* Times) whose feelings and ln# " would not be unlike those herein language ' •\ij who have we got here to night?" says M-'rV-*el, opening another door, and glar ' his bull's eye. "Two drunken and two women? The men are " r i enough," turning back each sleeper's .' fo !r. his face to look at him. "Are these your ;"od men, niv dears ?" ' VfF sir," returns one of the women.— "They are our husbands." •Brickitiakers, eh?" ••\Vhat arevou doing here? You don't be :nff lo Lou joo. ••No sr. belong to Hertfordshire.' • Whereabouts in Hertfordshire ?" •St. Aibans." "Come up on the tramp?" •We waiked up yesterday. There's no wor ii iio»n with ua at present; but we have done no good by coming here, aud shall do tone I expect." • Thai's not the way to do much good, s *\s Mr. Bucket, turning his bead in the direction of the unconscious figures on the ground. It an'?, indeed," replies the woman with a sigh. ' Jenny and me knows it full well." "The room, though two or three feet higher than the door, is so low that the head of the tallen of the visitors would touch the black ened ceiling it" lie stood upright. It is offen ce to ciery sense; even the gross candle burns pale and sickly in the polluted air.— Th're ate a couple cf benches, and a higher bench by »ay of table. The men lie asleep where tney stumbled down, but the women sit bv the candle. Lying in the arms cf the wo nian who has spoken is a very young child. "Why, what age do you call that little creature?'' .'ays Bucket. "It looks as if it was born \esitrdnv." He is not at all rough about it; aulas he turns his light gently on the in tan'. Mr. Snugshy is strangely reminded of another infant, encircled with light that he has seen in pictures. He is not three weeks old yet, sir," says the woman. "Is lie vour child ?" "Mine." The other woman, who was bending over it • hen they came in, stoops down again, and, ki->~es i: as it lies asleep. • Vou seem a? fond of it as if you were the :;,oshi r youi.self,'" says Mr. Bucket. "I was the mother of one like it, master, and it died." Ah, Jenny, Jenny !" says the other woman to her; "uetK r so: much better to think of dead tiifcn ithve, Jenny! Much belter!" "Why,you an I !such an unnatural woman, 1 hope," returns Bucket, sternly, "as to wish your o» n child dead V ' God knows you are right, master," she re turns. "I am not. I'd stand between it and death, with my own life, if I could, as true as anv pretty lady." ' Then don't talk in that wrong manner," says Wr. Bucket, mollified again. "Whydoyoudo it?" • It's brought into my head, master," returns the woman, her eyes filling with tear?, "when 1 look down at the child lying so. If it was never to wake no more, you'd think me mad, I should take on so. i know that very well. I was with Jenny when she lost her's—warn't I Jennv?—and 1 know how she grieved. But look round you, at this place; look at them:" glancing at the sleepers on the ground. ''Look at the boy you're waiting for, who's gone out to do me u good turn. Think of the| children that yoiir business lays with often and often, and that you see grow up!" "Well, well," Hays Mr. Bucket, "you train him respectable, and he'll be a comfort to you, and look after you in your old age, you know." "1 mean to iry hard," she answers, wiping her ejfs. ' ilut I've been a thinking, being o»er ined to-night, and not well with the ague, c: all the many things that 11 coine in his way. My master will be against it, and he'll be beat, and made to f-ar his home, ant!, perhaps, to stray wild, if I work for him ever so much, and ever so hard, there's no one to help me: and if he should be turned bad. 'spite rf all I could do, and the time should come when I shouldsit by him in his sleep made hard and changed, an't it likely I should think of him as he lies in mv lap now, and wish he had died as Jenny's child died." "I'here, there!" says Jenny. "Liz, you're tired and ill. Let me take him." In doing so she displaces the mother's dress, but quickly re-adjusis it over the wounded and brui»ed bosom where the baby has been lying. "It's ray dead child," says Jenny, walking up and down as she nurse.", "that makes me love this child so dear, and it's my dead child that makes her love it so dear, too, as even to think ot iis being taken awey froin her now. While she thinks that, I think what fortune would I give to huve my darling back. But we mean the same thing, if we knew how to say if, us two mothers do< sin our poor hearts!" Mr. Snagsby blows his nose, and coughs his cough tf sympathy. The Fakir of Siva. —The following amusing occurrence is related by an up-river paper: We were standing at the counter of a bank ing-house in this city, the other morning, when n genteel little man entered and inquir ed of :he gedate teller if he received cash on deposit. "O, ye*," he replied. ''Well. I've got a small amount that I desire to deposit. ' The siiunger now counted out twenty ea gle?, and gure them into the teller's hand. "llolJ oti to 'em," says the stranger. The teller turned again to the counter, his face pallid with Tear and blank with astonishment —looked up, (iown, around—his eyes sticking out, his mouth wide open, "What's the mattei?" said the stranger, coolly; "are you sick?" "The m-o-u-e-y-'a c-o-n-e!*' he gasped, trem lline. "<«one!" shouted the stranger, "where, in the name of lieelgebub, is it gone? this gentle man saw me give it to you." "I duJo-don't know'," he stammered. '•Well, you'd better know," replied the stranger, "you're responsible for it." "He's got it in his pocket," said a grufl voice under the counter; "I seed him hide it." Con sternation and despair now spread over the face of the teller. "(iive rue back the money," said the stran ger; "i'li iind .some safer plate tJian this." "I've not got it," the teller replied. -He lies!" again shouted the voice beneath the counter; "make him pull out his handker chief." The teller did so and down rolled the twenty eagles on the floor. Gathering them -up, he iiandod litem to lite straoger, who quiet ' ly disappeared through the aow congregated THE DAILY DISPATCH. crowd The mystery was now solved, as one of the bystanders burst into a loud laugh, and informed us that the stranger was no other than the"Fakir of Bi\a," the conjuror and ventrilo quist.— A*. O. Crescent. A Quanuary.—A man returned to this city last Monday, after an absence of four years, expecting again to taste the joyaof home and wedded life, and found, to his surprise and horror, his beloved had become anothtr'a wife. In this instance, the lady had not proved frail, but had been deceived by reports of the death of her absent lord, when it appeared that somebody else of the same name had been put under the sod cf the cold regions. This case is strictly true, and presents a fine field for legal argument as to the proper ownership of the female, which will, however, be obviated by the expressed willingness of the present in cumbent to cede all claim to the returned hus band.—Cincinnati Commercial. Indian Treaty.—The Minnesota Demo crat says the Sioux chiefs have signed the treaty as amended, after considerable persuaj sion, and thus averted threatened difficulties.— The Sioux ars to have temporary possession of the reservation, and will probably remain there for some yeors.

One stream of lava had flowed towards Zafiaroni, fifteen miles from the crater, and, another towards the ftjila, devastating the vineyards in both directions.

Getting better of thi*, la*t November I took a deep cold, which ied to what my physician told me wa* bil ious pleurisy, which left me with a constant, deep ly-seated, and painful cough, having no re*t day or night, and constantly throwing up from my lung* a thick matter. I became much emaciated, grow ing weaker every day, and keeping my bed the greater part of the time. My friends thought I had the consumption, and at time* I wa* also of the same opinion. At this stage of my di*ease,after hav ing tried many and various remedies, without suc cess a friend advi*ed me to try Dr Hampten'sVeget able Tincture, and I procured me a bottle, which I now pronounce the greatest medicine 1 ever took. Before I bad taken half the eontents of one bottle, I felt much improved; aad now, having taken but two bottles, my cough »nd pains have entirely left me, and lam enabled to attend to business. I can truly say that, with th- blessing of God, I have been restored to the health 1 now enjoy by the use of this most invaluable medicine. Your*, WESLEY ROCK, Schroeder.fnear Saratoga street.
