' OUR FASSOOER It was a lovely Antnmn afternoon. toward the close ot September, when we weighed anchor and sailed out of the river Mersey, bound for Melbourne. We had a euou ship Janet's Prido loaded with miscellaneous articles. On board were fourteen nasscneers. and. take them all in all a pleasanter lot I never steered across the stormy sea.- - There were Uiree oia genucmcn wno were coinir ont to share their fortunes. come what might, and which, poor old souls, they secniea to tninK iasuionea in tbe brightest colors, long uciore uio z.ne lish Channel was out of sicht. Then there was a solitary old gentle man, who. iudrinir from the tone of his conversation, was BceKing tue new wuriu for the ostensible purpose or nnumg lauit with it. There were two young married couples, all full of hope and activity, bent upon making a new home far away from their native land. There were also a very jolly elderly brother and sister, neither of whom had ever entered into the bonds of matrimony, bat instead had Bluet to eacli ouier through life. There were three old Australian settlers who had been over to have a peep at the old country, and who were now returning tn tlm land which to them, throuirh lone communion, had become the dearest of all others, home, sweet nome Lastly, thoueh not least, there was a solitary passenger, who soon became the pet or all on oaaru. lie was a man oi about 28 years of ace. possessing a very clear complexion, a very handsome, long, flowing beant ana a very siucy. mous tache, j liia name was Reginald Moore. 11 is given reason lor taking tins sea voyage wss the delicate state of his health. There was not the least doubt that the poor fel low's chest ' was -affected, for his -voice, though charmingly sweet, was one of the weakest 1 ever remeinDcr nearing;ana it had a certain hallowness in-its sound that in my mind is invariably associated with tbat terrible disease commonly termed consumption. He always wore a thick muffler round jus neck to protect nis throat and chest. In all my experience and it has been a pretty wide -one I never knew any one to win so many friends, and such undi vided esteem, in so short a time, as Reg inald Moore. There was not, I believe, a sailor on board who did not entertain the warmest possible liking for him. As for the passenircTS. they never seemed so happy as when likening to his amusing anecdotes, of which he seemed to possess an inexhaustible store. And this delicate young English paragon of passengers had made this conquest over all our hearts be fore we had been three weeks at sea. He was too, such a clever fellow with his hands. He could cut and shape you anything ont of a piece of .wood, from an oyster to an elephant, and, at making models of ships, he never met his equal. He was. besides, sucn a kina ana consia- erate fellow towards fellow-passengers. When the three elderly gentlemen, wno imagined their fortunes made, were afflic ud with, aea-sicknesa. be was the first to come forward and help them about while they slowly recovered. lie would insist upon their taking his arm, weak as he was himself, and he would lead them about on deck with a firmness that spoke volumes in favor of his "sea legs." I do not remember any voyage ever najuinir so oukklv as the one when the pleasant psssenger was on board. I could; with infinite pleasure, make a long pause at this junction in the thread of aty story, to dwell upon the pleasant memories I still retain of Reginald Moore. We were within a week's saw oi aiei bourne. Reginald Moore had all but com- Elcted a model of the Janet's Pride, which e proposed presenting tome the night before we landed. Now he worked at this model prtnci- Eolly on deck, and, strangely enough, he ad chosen for a work-table the top of one of the empty water-casks that stood on deck, abaft and under the shel ter of the bulwarks. .. . While he worked through Uie day yon were sure to see him surrounded by some of the passengers or sailors. The amount of industry displayed was truly wonder ful, for he was tnvanaDiy at wore, m iuc : lwtfam anw nf the other passengers dreamed of turning out of their snug berths. Aa I have already said, we were but six day's sail from Melbourne. For the first . J 1 - r 1.1m tli. ilr,na time in our cxpericutw u " ant passenger appeared at the dlnner.toble with a solemn, downcast expression of the face, and a silent tongue. Before dinner was over I asked him what troubled his mind and caused this unhappy cnange in his wonted cheerful manner. At tint hi triM to evade my queries py replying it "was nothing in particular;" but I pressed him persistently until I won from him an explanation. " ' i ' "Peruana, after alL" lie said, "it is only fair that I should explain matters. The fact of the matter is, my watch has been stolen." "Stolen !" we exclaimed in a breatn. "Undoabtedlv. he answered, "but I pray you, Captain" hero he turned to me "I pray yu say not one word about it. The only thing that renders the loss of consequence to me is the fact that it once belonged to my poor mouicr. un uiai ac count alone I would not have lost it for any amount of money. However, it can not be helped, and, therefore, it is nseless to cry over spilt milk, as the old adage has it. My only request in the matter is, my dear Captain, that you will leave the matter entirely in my hands, and I think it ia very probable that I may recover it This request I am sore you will oblige me 7"Oertaiufy, my dear sir," I replied; hnt " - - - ' "Exactly." he interrupted, with one of his pleasant smiles, "yon would like to take the matter in hand, and investigate it to the utmost of your power; l know that, my dear Crptain, fall well ; but I can trust you to keep your promise, and leave the case entirely in my hands." How could 1 deny mm nis requen r You will readily Imagine what conster nation this event gave rise to among the other passengers. The three old gentle man instantly preceded to explain that they possessed Jewelry to the value of at least 3UU, wnicn mcy usually kept iockeu UD in a brown' -leather writing-case; but unfortunately at the present time the lock was out of order. . Reginald Moore suggested a safer de posit for their valuables. The young married couples announced the fact of their own ing at least 250 worth of jewelry: and they, too, consulted Sir. Moore as to the safest plan for secreting it. The kind-hearted brother and sister had, it appeared, more valuables in the way oi ewelry than anyone on board, since 1, 500 had never purchased what they pos sessed. The whole of tbat evening was occupied in speculating as to the probable perpe trator of the theft, and in condoling with Reginald Moore on his great loss. Every one turned in that night in an uneasy state of mind, and it was with as- tnnixhment mat ttiev round inemseives. ln the morning, still in full possession of all their worldly goods, lhis improved condition of affairs seemed to reassure our passengers, who at once began to look cheerful and at ease. Reginald Moore's pleasant face wore its wonted smile, and.as heretofore, he enliven ed and charmed us with his vivacity and anecdote. All- through he worked on the model of the Janet's Pride, still using the top of the empty water-cask -for a work table. , " : . That night we returned to rest with minds far more at ease than the previous one. Alas! what a sense or anger and distress came with the morning 1 Every passenger on board possessing jewelry had been robbed during the nigut. The three old gentlemen, the young married couple and tne kind nearted brother and sister, found themsclvrs min us every article or jewelry the had pos sessed. Even the grumbling old gentle man hod lost his gold snuff-box. There was no keeping matters quiet this time. The tbier must be traced and brought to justice. What was the wisest method cf procedure t What would Mr.- Moore suggest? "I would suggest," though most reluct antly," said Mr. Moore, "that every sailor and every sailor's luggage be carefully searched." To this proposition we unanimously agreed, "This" he continncd, "must be most hu miliating to the feelings of .-your crew, Captain, and, therefore, in common fair ness to them as our fellowmen, let me also suggest that every passenger and every passengers' luggage be also thoroughly searched." A little hesitation on the part of one or two of the passengers was demonstrat ed before acceding to this last proposal, but our pleasant passenger soon contrived to bring those who at first demurred to his side of thinking. -Of course," he said "there is not a pas senger on board who is not abo picion, yet, injustice to the feelings of the crew, it is in my humble opinion, the best we can do." This delicacy of fueling and this thoughtfulness on the port of Reginald Moore rendered him, if possible, more ad mirable and praiseworthy in our eyes than ever. ... Many of the crew objected strongly to this mode of proccedure, but all were com pelled to submit. The old boatswain was furious with indignation, and vowed if it cost him his life he would trace the thief j who had caused him to be searched like a common pickpocket. Even tbe pleasant passenger foiled lo soothe his sense of in- JuEy-.. . ... : well, a thorough search was maaa uy mvself. in company with tbe kindhearted old gentleman and his sister. Every one's traps were ransacked from top to bottom uritnont success. 1 j- - Farther search was useless. What was to be done ? That night, all having been made snug and the passengers having turned in," none of them, as you may imagine, in very bril liant spirits, I went on deck, it being what we call at sea "the captain's watch." I turned in about 4 o'clock a. m the second officer then Doming on duty. My cabin was amidships and on- deck, -. and from a window therein I could command a view of the after-deck of the ship- , Somehow or other, I could not rest one atom; so, dressing myself, I determined upon sitting up aad smoking. I drew aside the blind of the window 1 have men tioned and looked out :i It was just the gray light of early morn ing, and there was a stitnsh breeze blow ing. To my surprise 1 beheld Reginald Moore on deck. I was about to open my cabin door and invite him to loin me in my restlessness, when the peculiar nature of bis proceed-1 ings riveted my attention, lie looked around on all sides, aa il afraid of attract ing observation. . ' Then, suddenly, as if assured the coast was clear, be made rapidly toward the empty water cask, on which he was ac customed to manufacture his model of the Janet's Pride. Once more glancing cau tiously about him, he then applied his hands to the top of the cask, and with a rapid movement lifted half of the top bodi ly off. ; My astonishment and my excitement Vere intense. Another hasty glance round, and he plunged his hand down into the cask, thun quickly withdrew it, holding in his grasp a small bag which he rapidly concealed in the breast of his coat. Again he took a hasty survey, and was about making another dive into this strange receptacle for hidden goods, when he suddenly withdrew, having, with aston ishing rapidity, replaced the top of the cask. In another moment the cause of his alarm was made apparent, as a couple of sailors passed him on their way to relieve the man at the wheel. When all was again quiet for an instant he seemed determined tu at once return to the cask and no doubt withdraw something mora that the interruption had prevented him withdrawing in the first instance. But suddenly changing bis mind, be went down the stairs that led from the deck to the saloon and sleeping cabins. Scarcely had he disappeared when an other figure, stealthy crossing the deck. met my anxious OJaervotiou, it was tne boatswain. I saw him glance toward the stairs down which Reginald Moore bad taken, his de parture. Ha then made direct for the water-cask. It was now obvious to me that the old boatswain had been watching the pleasant passenger. - ' Just as he reached the water-cask a heavy green sea struck the ship to wind ward, necessitating the boatswain to hold on by the ropes sa as to keep his footing. and precisely at tne same moment iteginaiu Moore appeared at the top of the cabin stairs.' I shall neyer forget the scene. The Instant the ship bad steadied her self the boatswain commenced bis exam ination of the water-cask.. For a moment only, Moore stood looking at him with as evil an expression- on his lace as I ever beheld. ' ' With one bound he was upon the boit, swain before he could turn to protect him self. L waited no longer, but flung open the door of my cabin in an instant, and in another I was to tne rescue, mnu ui a few momenta we bad our pleasant pas senger in irons. .-.. . . ao, you see, ne was tne uu mui ti, hiding his knavery under the pleasantest exterior I ever knew a man to possess, The manner in which be had manufac tured the top of that water-cask was tbe most finished and ingenious piece of car peutry I have ever beheld. . t In the interior of the side of the- cask, he had driven several nails, about two feet from tbe top, on which be bad sus pended, in wash-leather bags, the jew elry he hail stolen. You may easily imagine the surprise evinced by our passengers on discovering that the tuict was tne man tor wnom cacu and every one entertained such regard and even affection. At the expiration of three days from the date of the pleasant passenger's detection we landed in Melbourne, where duty compelled me to hand bim over to the police : but t.8 no one eared to remain in that town for the purpose of prosecuting bim, he was summarily dealt witn. ine presiding magistrate sentenced him to six months' imprisonment with hard labor. Cremation of Sir XL Coomsra Swauny. Over a thousand persons, representing every class of the inhabitants ot joiombo, assembled in the unconsecrated portion of the liorclla Uciactcry on Monday, to wit ness the cremation of the remains of the Hon. Sir M. Ooomara Swamy, the Tamil representative in the Legislative Council, who, as we announced in our last issue, died on Sunday morning, at his residence at Colpctty. This was the first time, we believe, that a cremation has taken place in the cemetery, which prob ably accounted for the presence of many persons who were merely attracted bv curiosity; and as it may seem somewhat strange that the ceremony which we are about to describe should take place with in a few hundred yards of the consecrated portion of the cemetery -we-may explain that the government agest gave the neces sary pennUnioo on Jhe; principle . that a cemetery was for common use, and that the portion ot it not consecrated could not be denied to any applicants, whatevet their religious faith and whatever their luncrai rites migut tie. ine .necessary site was, therefore, furnished for the fun eral pyre of the deceased Knight; and was Indicated ' by " somewhat novel con- struction. Four plantain trees heavily laden with fruit were placed in such a position that they formed the corners ot a kind of altar composed ot gfinxlal wood. The skies of the altar were crccrieTt witb white cloth, and the cover ings were corn ied of the came material. native fruits being profusely used to give it an attractive appearance. Near at hand was a large supply of sandal wood, to be it ea alter tne body nad been deposited on the pyre, and the presence of two tins of keroseno. of sever- chatties containing ghee and other inflammable material, in dicated that every precaution had been taken to reduce the body to ashes as quickly as possible. '1 ne cortege was announced to leave the residence ot the deceased at seven o'clock precisely, but owing to the roundabout way the procession took, it was consider, ably past eight before it arrived on. the ground. The body, which was in a coflln covered by a crimson pall with gold fringe, was conveyed to the cemetery on a hearse surmounted by a pa(jQdahftped construe tion oi wuue linen, reiievea wiui uiack, and studded with a large number of. min- ature flags, also of white linen. ' As the I hearse was slowly drawn by its two horses coalics placed long strips of cloth in iront ot it, so that all the way lrom Colpctty to Borella the horses' feel rarely touched tbe surface of the road. Behind the hearse was a siring of nearly a hun dred carriages, among the occupants of which were Captain Nevll Uayne, A. L. C representing II. F. the governor. Chief- Justice Phear, Mr. Justice! Stewart and many other prominent citizens, together with an Influential representation of other classes of the community. - wnen the pyre was reached tne ncarsc was drawn round it three times, and the coflln was then borne from the hearse to the pyre by Chief-Justice Phear, Mr. Jus tice Scwart, pie Hon.

A number of natives, men and wotrten.'Jk'gan to pile over the coflln huge logs of sandalwood, and seemed to re gard the labor as one of a most ordinary character, for they chatted and shouted and pushed to and fro just as if they were unloading a -boat in the harbor. -Log upon log was piLud apart tha caflia, until at last it was altogether concealed from view. and then .two tins of kerosene were poured over' the pile, -white' caU phor-and other ingredients (haf. baye a pleasant pdor when, burnt were, liberally employed, to gether with the ghee in the chatties al- 1 . I a rcuuy menuuoeu.' -t i At lost when the patience of the Euro peans, exposed many of them for nearly two hours, to the. : heat, of the sub, was nearly exhausted, the Coolies who had so assiduouslyi piled oa - the scandlcwood were told to desist from their work. By tliis time the pile over the coflln had reach ed the canopy, some of the timber consis ting of wood that had apparently at one lima limned, the . pillars of a dwelling, bouse, and that took two men to carry. Tben'Mr. Tamblah, who took an active part in directing the operations, requested tbe crowd to retire foe a lew yards. This request was willlnirlr acceded to, and two natives who were attired as Coolies, but who, we were told, were "Priests," blew a melancholy wail for a few - moments on conch-shells. As - they, did . so, the pyre was fired by means of. a torch, and in a second or two was a mass of flames, the heat from which was unendurable.

A lady writer in one ot our exchanges furnishes some of the reasons why Eve did not keep a hired girl. She says: There has been a great deal said about the faults of women, and why they need so much waiting on. borne one, (a man of course), bas 140 presumption to ask "Why, when Eve was manufactured of a spare rib, a servant was not made at the same time to wait upon her, V She didnt need my. A bright writer has said that Adan) never Came whining to Eve with a ragged stocking to be darned, buttons to be sewed on, gloves to oe- mended, rtgut away quick now!" because be never read th newspapers until the sun - went down behind the palm trees, and he, stretching himself, yawned out: "Isn't supper ready my dear."

Brown Eyea aad ttreen, aad Eyes of Heavenly Blue. " Human eyes, and particularly the eves of tine women and great men, are always Interesting things; and so we or.ote here what Prof. Seelcy.in his "Life and Times of ptcin," takes from .one of Arndt's works respecting the eyes of two great men. "Be it hero said once for all," observes' Arndt, "in answer to those who always come out with the finest white skin and the blxcst silver-clear eyes as the genuine mark of nouicness anu genius in a man, that the two greatest Germans of the nineteenth century Goethe and Stein observed the world from brown eyes ; though there was this difference, that the Goethean eye, broad and open, looked rather down for the most part with such radiance upon all around, and upon people, while Stein's eye, smaller and keener, rather gleamed tnan snone, and at times very fiercely flashed. Usually it expressed friendliness and honesty, but when he was in serious or positive angry mood it was capable of Hashing in a formidable manner. The most misciiievious eyes in women are- brown, according to experts. They are all powerful, are the eves of women, whatever tueir coior ume, or uiack, or brown, or hazel, or chestnut, or grey or green. Becky suarp nau green eyes, and tney did im mense execution. Velvety violet eves arc singularly beautiful, but His said they do not wear well. ' and wash badly. Eyes snouid wasn wen, considering now much they have to do with tears. Yellow eyes are not more common than yellow d iamonds, and they rank among diamonds. They are more numerous among men than among women, and novelists give them to peculiar descriptions of their villiana the lazy, dreamy sort of villiana, who, how ever, can nre up on occasion, and become the veriest devils of destruction. They are often given to the snake, but we have seen eyes in snakes that were anything but yellow, and snaky eyes in human heads that were ot the deepest block. ' White eyes are dead eyes, so far as expression goes, and Tcroind the observer of fish at the market; but In moments or passion they become quite as expressive as eyes ever should be. Commonly, they convey the expression of blindness, as well as of moral feebleness. Touching the color of the eves it should be born in mind that the same word has different meanings at different periods. One of the heaviest and therefore . the most accurate, of the bhakespearian com- mentators lor it is the rule with many that no brilliant man can be accurate, and no accurate man brilliant assures us that "what we now call blue eyes were in Shakespeare's time called gray, and were considered as . eminently beautiful." Heavenly blue we assume to be meant. the real azure or true blue, upon which the celestials are supposed to have the strongest claim in return. Cooper, in one of his novels, when describing two young momen, observes, "One peculiar charm was common to both ; and it is a Charm. though the strongest instance I ever saw of it in my me was in Italy, that may be said to belong almost exclusively to the Anglo-Saxon race; I mean that expression of the countenance which so eminently be tokens feminine purity and. femjnijie ten derness united the look which artists love to impart to the faces of acgels. Each of th ij girls hod much of this; and I suppose it C as principally owing to their heavenly blue eyes. I doubt if any wo man with black or hazle eyes, notwith standing all the brilliancy of their beauty, ever possessed this charm Ha the higher degree." The lower animals often have most expressive eyes tnat are intensely beautiful, being of a beauty that endures. perhaps, because they do not suffer frum the moral wear and tear WiUe passions and the appetites ; and yet those animals suffer much front the persecutions and cruelties of man. Fear and fierceness be long to such eyes in perfection : fear be cause the lives of the feebler animals are passed In almost constant terror, and fierceness because tlio bolder animals are ever on guard against attack, or are search ing for food. . What can be more pathetic than the appealing look of a timid spaniel that is ill-used, or that is looking for its lost lord ? What fiercer than the eyes of a fighting animal at bay? i v The theory is becoming common that, in itself, thp eye is nothing, and that what we call its expression comes entirely from its surroundings, its setting,- as w0 may say. We wet inclined tQ lngb ftt this When first wo heard of it ; but having read the arguments made in its support, it strikes us as being a shrewd view of the eye, and Its position and purpose. What is meant by the surroundings ot the eye is best explained by a passage in Haw thorne's Italian "Note-Books." In which he mentions a conversation he bad with Powers, the sculptor. "S.peaVjng qf hu man eves, be observed that they did not depend for their expression upon color. nor upon any fight f the epnl beaming through them, nqr any glow of thp eye: ball, nor upon anything but tbe form and action or uio surrouuuing muaeiea. xte Illustrates it by saying that if the eye of a wolf or ot whatever fiercer animal, could be placed in another setting, it would be found capable of the utmost gentleness of expression. " I ou yourself,' said he, 'have a very bright and sharp look sometimes but it is not In the eye itself.' His owt eyes, fts 4 pouw nave awqrn,wer flowing all the tme he spoke ; and. remembering how many times i nave seemed to see eyes glow and blaze and flash and sparkle and melt and soften, and how all .poetry is illu minated with tne igut Ri ladies' eyes, and hqw many r.oqplo hitVP been smitten by the lightning or an eye, whether lu love or anger, it was ditncull to allow that all this subtlest and keenest fire Is Illusive, not even phosphorescent, and that any other jelly in the same socket would serve as well as the brightest eye. .nevertheless, he must be right; of course he must and I am rather ashamed ever to have thought otherwise. Where should, the light cqiue from I lias a lnan a flauie inside of- his bcadt lioesji'is spirit mdnifiest itself in the semblance of flame t Tbe moment we think of it the absurdity becomes evident. am not quite sure, noweyer, that tne outer surface pf t,bp eyp m&y not reflect mow light tn some siatea ot iceiing than others; the state of health certainly has an influence ot this kind." Hawthorne some where says of Webster, "If bis eyes had not been in such deep caves, nre would not have looked as bright." Boston Tr&vPlefi . . . - - The Now AnntMla,tar." Bright and early yesterday morning be. fore one tenth of tue citiaens . of Detroit had shaken of the effects of the glorious Fourth, Prof. James 1C- P- Burlingame made his appearance on several - streets In Detroit almost at tbe same moment. Vou would have known him to be a professor. even if you bad seen him tangled up with the wheels of a butcher cart. The tall plug hat, carrying the stains of years that linen duster girted at the waist bis long hair hanging down to keep his shoulders warm was a dead give away on his title. The professor came here to dispose of individual rights to use his "Fly Annihi lator," and be didn't let thoughts of the neat presidential election act him down on a bench. His piccolo voice inquired of a woman at the front door of a bouse on Con gress street cast : "Madame, have you ten seconds to spare this morning?" ' I- : "No, sir I" was her prompt reply. "Very well, then you will miss seeing my Fly Aanihilator,"be remarked as he walked off. "Thousands have missed it to their everlasting sorrow thousands have accepted it and been made bappy ftor life." "It's some kind of pizen!" she called after him down tbe street.-- - . ' -j "Warranted freo from all drugs and chemicals dangerous to the human ex tern, and recommended to people troubled with sleeplessness," he called eut as he briskly retraced his steps. "I've got screens in every window, and yet the flies get in," she continued as be opened his satchel on the steps. "Of course they do of course. 'A fly is like a human being. Bar hi at out and he is seized wilk : a desire to get it at any .price. Tell him that he can't and be will or break his neck. Fling away your screens ana uepeno entirely on my annihi- ior, warraoiea to kill on sight, and can be worked by a child of four years. This is the application." He took from his satchel an eight ounce boUle-fllled with a dork liquid and pro- mcu mui a auitui ucusii, anu noiuiDg it up continued: . "One 23 cent bottle does for twenty doors. ana t. give you directions now to make all yon want. No poison here nothing in mis bottle to trot the children np to the cemetery." Why, you don't put it on the flics, do you t" she asked. - - "Not altogether, madam. Any child can use it, as I said before., Just watch me a moment". He swung the front door oncn. and with the brush applied the mixture to the back edge, giving it a thin coat from top to uottom. Now. then." he said, as he swung the door back, "Flics like sweet. The mixture is sweet. The fly alights on the door, and yon 8 wing it shut and he is jammed against the casing and crushed in an instant ' Every door is capable of killing 1,000 flies per dav. If von have twelve doors your aggregate of dead flies will be exactly 13,000. When you have crushed about 2,000 on a door take an old knife ana scrape tiiem oft and - begin over again." . , "Do vou suppose !" began the in. dignont woman, but he interrupted ber nun ; "Dbnt suppose anything about it, ex cept that it will mash hies and never miss. All you have to do is to open every door, apply the mixture, and then shut them in succession. If you have twelve doors and twelve children, you can leave it all to the children. And only twenty- nvc cents per uotuc." "Do vou think I want all my doors daubed up with flies and molasses f" she shouted, as 'she made a cuff at the bottle. "Just as you prefer, madam." he onictlv replied. "Some do and some don't. Some do and soxe don't. Some won't have it at any price, and others even set np extra doors in the back yard in order to use lots oi it. I'll warrant this liquid, to draw 'em. if you'll only open and shut the doors." ... "I won't buy it I won't have it !" she shouted, as she jammed the broom against tne aoor. Vtry well, madam very well. If you prefer a fly on vaur nose to one on the door I can raise no objections.. Remem ber, however, that this is is my farewell tour pievious to appearing before the crowned heads of Europe, and you will not have another chance to secure the anmhilator.

A Woman with Two Hoakaadn, For several days sensational accounts of the marriages, qi the three parties named below have been going tbe rounds of the press. We have been at some pains to se cure the facts in the case, and they are as follows: Nellie Delaven, a daughter of John ueiaven, ot uanton village, came to Ogdensburg about the close or the war, and entered one of the milliner shops as an apprentice. She was good-looking and of prepossessing manner. Shortly after her arrival she made the acquaintance ot Frank W. Richards, a young man then re siding here. He was a Protestant and she a Catholic. Thev were married here without the consent or knowledge of her parents, and moved at once to uanton. Her parents could certainly., have made no. opposition to the mar. riage before it occurred, and they now say that it fM flevor unsatisfactory to them. fox tnree years the parties lived pieasanuy together at Canton. ' Richards then de termined to better his situation, and went West alone. He secured a place as brake- man on a Wisconsin railroad, and intend ed, as soon as he could, to send for his wife. Before that time came, however, an accident occurred by whli-h he was seriously inlured. Dispatches were sent to bis wife to come to his dying bedside, and the papers placed nis name among those fatally injured. As was tq be ex pected, -Mrs. 'wiaraa qeiroa ia go to aim, hut Deing in straitened circumstances, and believing that she could do him no good, did not Hearing no further from her husband, she gave him up as dead. After working at the milincry business in Can ton for some three years, she went to Os wego and opened a millinery store in that city. There some six or seven veftrs ago she was married to, Jphn Tuio, with whom She has lived' since. Their life has been a happy one, and one child, less than a year old, has been born to them.

The story that she - was on her way to see a sister in the East seems to be a myth. . Richards was at Canton for several days teaching the boya bow to play billiards and visiting old acquaint ances. He was known by some aa "Texas Jack," though why he should bear tbat name tt would perhaps be hard ,ta . ten. On the 15th Inst, he left Canton, saying tbat be was going to Massachusetts. It is also understood at Canton that he left New York on the 16th far Topcka, Kan. His wife left Canton the 9th of this month, and ber friends at Canton understood that she was to return to ber husband No. 2 at Oswego, and would continue to live with him. The Oswego papers and a dispatch to the Sun both indicate that she bad a tearful separation from husband No. 2 at Oswego, and that she has gone west with Mr. Richards.

The dialect of Pennsvrvania is mafnlT Scotch-Irish. This is the mora remarks. ble when we remember that the settlers of Pennsylvania were largely of the cIasa nf .angusn Quakers, and that subsequently tho Germans have come in almost over whelming force. . From Eastern Pennsyl vania the Scotch-Irish spread abroad, go ing np the Cumberland Valley into Vir ginia, and crossing the Alleghentes both iu r-ennsyivania ana Virginia. Their dia lect fa broadly defined, both against the people of New York on the north and the people of old Virginia on the south aad west No one at all acquainted with the Scotch-Irish dialect would be at a loss to identify tbe mam peculiarities of speech exhibited in all the region indicated. Penn ey Ivan i an says "strenth" and "lenth" for strength and length. lie says "cannle" and "hannle" and "bunnle" for candle and handle aud bundle. He says "I want out", and "I want down" for "I want to get out" and "I want to get down." He says ne win wait on you when he says he will wait "for yoa." If a person has had a -slight sickness, and has speedily gotten over it. the Pennsylvaniaa will say that "he took sick," but it was only a "brash " and he soon got "onite better" The Pennsylvania!! often uses "nor" for man alter a comparative adjective. ' One thing is "more nor another," or "better nor anotner." ao "tin" is often substituted for to" in tbe Pennsylvania dialect The horse comes till the stable, or a boy till the sohoolhouse. The word "into" is much used for "in" in Pennsylvania. A horse will be said to have a while soot into its forehead, or a field to have a fine spring of water into it The.Pennsyl. vanians use the word "whenever" to sig nify as soon as. Thus it will be said "whenever the carriage came, the lady got in." In Pennsylvania they "lift a col lection" and "take up a church." ' and ride to town "in a machine." with a ''horse beast" drawing the machine. Moreover. if the horse is a lively animal, what some call "skittish" be will be called in Penn sylvania "a wild beast! Now, all these peculiarities are evidently of Scotch-Irish origin, and by means of them, and others like them, we can trace in our country the movement, of the influence of this element of population. . . . . In all tbe South conversation is more cul tivated among educated people than at the North. It is a noteworthy fact that conversation considered aa accomplishment, scarcely exists at ait in our Northern States. Scarcely one educated person in a hundred is as skillful and practical a talker in gen eral society. This is all the more remark able when we remember that the whole nation is given to publio 'talking. Let almost any man who In a parlor is wholly quiet, or who speaks only in an awkward or embarrased way, once mount a stump, ana ne win narrangue a crowd by the hour. Bui at the South almost every edu. cated person of either sex will converse in mixed company with freedom, tact and intelligence. Conversation is cultivated. There is an ambition to excel in it From this, no doubt, in part, it has come to pass that pronunciation at the South is more old-fashioned than at the North. Conver sation at the South has given tbe law to pronunciation, while at the North we have followed books and have changed the pro nunciation to suit tbe spelling. Thus at the South it ia common, if not universal, to hear clerk pronounced dark, and James Jeemes, and keer for care, and skeer for scare, rigiment and siminary for regiment and seminary. And not only do old-fash-ioncd pronunciations prevail at the South, but also old-fashioned phrases and expres sions. A young man attaining bis majority be- comes "one-and-twenty" instead of twenty- one, insteaa oi a in ing witn a iriena, or taking tea.they "eat a meal's victuals" with him. . Perhaps a sufficient number of illustrat tions has been given to the connection of our modes of speech, yet it would hardly answer to dismiss the subject without some reference to Westernismof life and speech. Such words as "olearlngs" and "diggins" and "openings" point out sufficiently the character of the Western country. mere is mat, nowever, in western fan. guage which is yet more ' significant of peculiarity in Western life.- Western peo ple are much in the habit of using words in odd and unexpected ways, and of in. stltuting grotesque comparisons, and of in dulging in picturesqu expressions. They indulge in a sort ol wild freedom of speech which seems very truly to harmonize with the freedom of life belonging to a new country. For example, they prefer to call whisky "corn Inloe," because therein is the conception of the "make" of the article. And when they go further and call it "chain lightning," they very vividly set forth the style f its working. : They say of a man whose pretensions have been ex posed or who has egrcgiously failed in carrying out bis plans, that has ""flatted out" Then a man of staunch character is not only "there," but further, and especial ly, he is ao sate that "he . will do to lie to," A Western man when traveling, when he happens to see - a church, and desires to know who is its pastor, will ask the question, "who runs me concern f" It ta common everywhere to hear - tne word badly" used for "much" or - greatly." Thus a man caught in a shower will, say be wants an umbrella very "badly." Hut see the emphasis which the Western man obtains by a little twisting of the expres. sion. He says, "I want an - umbrella the worstkind." ,f -. - r ; .
