Union. On Saturday evening, March 19th, a diabolical attempt was made to assassinate half a dozen persons by means of powder. The explosion w as intended to destroy the residence of Emil Grizar, the Belgian Consul at San Franeisco. Wo condense the aunexed account from the Bulletin of March 21st: Mr. Grisaris absent from the city on a visit to Europe, and is expended to return in a few days. During his absenco his residence has been occupied by six of his friends, who have employed their own servants and kept a bach elor's home, eating and sleeping in the build ing. Tlwit names are: Svlvian Cahu, of the house of Lazard Frcres, Eugene Dewey, Theo dore Leroy, and the three brothers, and Rap hael, Sylvian and Henry Weil. In additionto the main building, there is a two-story frame building standing in the rear of the lot, some 50 or 60 faet from the kitchen, and entirely disconnected from it. lathis building there are a sitting "room and two or thrc-o lodging rooms. Therelwe employed about tho hou?. a French woman as chief cook and house keeper, a young Chinaman as her assistant, and a white man who has charge of the rooms in tho rear building. At about, a qnniter io S o'clock a terrific explosion took place under the house. The six gentluman had just tinif-h-e'd their dinner and left the dining table, aud were in the rooms ot the rear building. Hie woman and Chinaman were standing together at a 6inall table in the kitchen, and the white servant, or porter was in ihe rear building All fortunately were out of the reach of dan ger. The explosion is believud to have been produced by the ignition of a can of powder. In the immediate vicinity the shock was so great as to arouse the entire neighbooihoed, and at once draw an immense crowd to tho damaged building. At the distance of a block or two the report was supposed to be that of a cannon fired from some steamer off North Beach. The French woman and Chiuaman in the kitchen stood about 24 feet from the ex plosive centre with their faces towards it. Theyjsay the floor seemed to be suddenly raised in front of them with such force as to throw them backward nearly off their feet. The ex plosive material had been placed near the rear of the parlor floor and within a foot or two of lhn front end of the dining room. The con cussion lifted up and shattered tha floors of both rooms, making a complete wr?ck of many of the timbers and nearly all the furniture in ; that part of the house. The floor directly over the powder was badly shattered; the door between the two rooms was torn entirely from its hinges ; the top of tho door frame and tho dides were split and broken; the washboards, 15 fet off were torn away, and one-half the floor of the parlor was raised from its position. In front of the building wag a porch about five fret wide and 18 feet long. This, although 20 feet distant from the powder, was a more com plete wreck than any portion of the floor within the building. A strset car happened to boarly opposite the house when the explo sion occurred. One of the lamps in the car wa3 extinguished by the shock. Ab the earth 'was jarrd at a considerable distance and buildings ihaken, the first impression on the minds of many was that an earthquake had occurred. Of the six gentlemen whose name have been given, neither has any idea that he has an. enemy in the world who would seek to take h'i3 life, and the entire affairs is wrapped in mystery Love at Eirst Sight. TT.sliington Cor. X, Y. Herald. Here is a sprightly bit of fashionable gossip. Pierre Bonaparte has become liinoufj for mar rying a saddlers daughter and shooting an offensive editor. Tha first act was regarded as a noble piec of heroism on his part. A certain young foreign gentleman, residing in thir chy, has furnished almost a parallel to Pierre Bona parte's honorable conduct towards a saddler's i tleman wa walking downPnsylvaniaAveuae about three or four week ag j, enjoyinga pleas ant promenade along onr Kahi ngton Bioad way, when his attention we psudden 'y attracted by a very pretty girl standing in the doorway of a shoeatore. Our hero was iasciuated in stantaneously. It was literally love at first sight. On pretence of making some purchase in the leather line he entered the store, engaged in courersation with the mciden aud. discovered she was the daughter of the proprietor. Our hero found excuses fer making many subse quent visits to the storeapd' finally the parents of the girl, noticing thia marked attention to their daughter, and thinking the disparity in rank was too great to aumit of proper a J dresies, politely informed him that they would prefer him to discontinue his calls. The young gentleman with an unexpected manliness aud evident sincerity, told ihft pa rants that his ia- teiitioiu were honorablu to the lasc degree ; that he loved their daughter devote and that though their respective stations differed widely an i rangement could be made which, he hoped would prove satisfactory to both sides. He told tho fa-her that his child was yet young enough to be thoroughly educated and fitted fin any station in life, and that if he would con sent, he, the young gentleman, would have the girl sent to one of the best academies in the country, there to be instructed in all the ac quirements desirable. Tho young gentleman also offered to give a solemn pledge that he would nerer visit ths yemttg lady at the acad emy, and that at the end of ths- educational course, if she still entertained a feeling of af fec:ion for him, he would lay at her feet his hand and keart. I am informed that fhe gen erous proposal has been accepted, and that the younjf lady is new at a female academy in a neghboring city. The whole thing is looked upon here as highly creditable to all parties cnuceriied. Tho young man occupies a very hijh officiol position. The Ios37of the Onetds New? comes hy talegraph, of the suspension of Captain Eyre, the commander of the British steamer Bombay which ran down and sunk the Oneida. Suspension may mean hanging and if justice were done would so in the present instance. To suspend Capt. Eyre, and not to hang him, is an outrage as well ns a paradox. Morally, he is guilty oi the murder of one hun dred and twenty men, for there appears to be no qut3tioi that ifghe stopped his ship he could have saved every soul of them without the slightest difficulty. The weather was calm and clear, and the lightest boat could have lived. B it thi3 man coolly went on his way, and left the ship he had cut in two, to sink with the crew. The onlydisasterapproaching this in character, that we remember, wes the sinking of the )Cn glish ship Charles Bartlett, by the American steamer Europa, June 1S49. The event occur red, however, in a dense fog. The Europa struck tho ship between the fore and mainmast, and literally cut hor in two, she herself receiv ing no damage. The steamer at once stop ped and lowered her boats, but the ship sank almost instantaneously, and out of a hundred and seventy persons, thirty-two alone weru saved That, however, was an unavoidable accident, happening on high seas, in a heavy fog, and whon the ship would he displaying no no lights. Tht captain moreover stopped his vessel at once, unlike the captain of the Bom bay, and saved all that coald bo saved. Be yond the similarity in tho catnstropho itself, there is, therefore, no parallel between these cases. Record. Captain Hall. The Chicago Pott speaks as follows regard ing another meditated voyago to the North Polo; For the Io7e of Heaven and the salvation-o the' country, let some one put a straight jacket on Captuia Hall, theArctic explorer, and build a solid wall of masonry around him and seal him up. He says that if Congress will give him a hundred thousand dollers he will ti the United States' flag to the North Pole and make na monarch of all he surveys. Now, in the name of icebergs and icicles, which ars ch eap enough already, we protest. Ia the name of our present hyperborean possessions, which are already to ranch for us, we implore. In the name of science, as affording too much of a good thing, we pray. The very augpestion makes us faint- Here is another government to be set up, more offices to be filled, more troops to be isntout. more reveuue to bo col lected at ten-fold coat ; moro speeches by Ch. r.ca Sumner setting forth by abuadtet stat istics the mineral resources, tha fishing "capa city, the agricultural riches, the balmy climate, the wonderful superiority of the inhabitants, , the necessity for a coaling station in those parts, and other wonderful matters too tsuui erouo to mention, all cf which has been known to the honorable Charles and to nobody else ever sinco ths creation of the world .' Will nt t somebody cairn- to the rescue ? Must we have a North Tele among ns ? The local editor of a Western journal visheJ a bull in tho very far West where he hud tbu glory of dancing with some of the most extra ordinary girls cf the pericd. He thus describes tho dresses worn by three of the principal ladies present : Miss A.was everlastingly scrumptious in an underskitt of red calico, flounced with blue muslin, surmounted with an ovarskirt of linsey. hooped in the rear en taddlebags with yellow bows.

Waist of yellow flannel, slashed with strips of buffalo hide. She carried a big sunflower, and danced with great luceness. Terrifically magnificent. An exchange tells thr following tough one: There is living at Otfipee, N. H., a man named Joshua Kennod, who, according to the best information, is 160 years old. He served in tht! old French war and also in the Revo-iuticiiBi-y war, an5 his recollections of that event are very distinct. He has used tobac co all his life, "thinks it has injured him and daughter. The story ia this : The young gn- I its use will shorten his life several years.
