This Latr Mystkrious T)k ATft. ?.,rnnoi
Cnrcy held an inquest, on Saturday morning,
upon the body of the unfortunate man whom
we mentioned as having died very suddenly,
nt Cutter's stablo, on Sixth-street, near Vine.
The testimony, however, threw little light
upon his history, although, from a naturali
sation paper found upon his person, his name
was supposed to have been James McCune.
The jury were unable to discover the causo
of his death, and rendered a verdict accord
ingly. e have been informed thnt the Co.-onor
was so ill when informed of the death, that
he was unable to leave his bed, thus causing
tho delay, in holding the inquest, that we
mentioned in our last issue. We are pleased
to learn, however, that he is now entirely re
covered, and make this statement in justice
both to Mr. Carey and oursclf.
Arrkst or am Alleged Homic.i.k. A man
named Samuel Brurt was arrested, evening
before lost, by Officers Smith and Wigcrs, at
it house on the corner of Buckeye and Poplar
streets, upon a charge of having killed another
named illiom Smith, a few days ago, in St.
Louis. From what wo were able to learn in
regard to the matter, it appears that the two
men left this city together, with the intention
of purchasing some land in Missouri, and
upon their arrival in St. Lonis stopped at tho
same hotel. A, week ago last Saturday they
went a short distance into the country, and
upon their return retired together to their
room. The next morning Smith was discov
ered dead in his bed, with his throat cut from
ear to car while Brust was no where to be
found. 1 he alleged homicide was committed
to the Hammond-street Station-house, to
await a requisition from the Governor of
Missouri, Ution examination his trunk ru
found to contain two knives, one of which
was siainea witn blood, two pistols and a con.
siderable purse of money.
OdadRI-CenTENMAL ANN.VEnmnv nr the
V. M. M. L. Association. A meeting of the
Committee of one hundred, appointed to
make the necessary arrangements fnr Hi !.
ebrntion of the coming anniversary of the
Vnimrr Afnii'a Uaiwnnlll.T M I
was held ninht before last, at the Merchants'
Exchange. Reports were read from a few of
me committees, trom which it appears that
mo caoiuiscs win consist oi an anniversary
address, to be delivered by William Hooper;
dramatic readings, by J. E. Murdoch, and a
poem by W. W. Fosdick. The Chairman of
tne uommittee on Music stated that the or-
etiestra ot tne Upera-house could be secured
for the occasion. The price of the ticket, has
been fixed at five dollars, admitting a lady
and' gentleman each additional lady two
dollars. The invited guests, we believe, are
to be admitted free of charge, but the number
wii iiuuiou w aixir.
The President Btuted that it was expected
the invitations should not be. confined to
tue members ot the Association. They should,
however, be granted under the careful super
vision of the Executive Committee; and he
uupeu oucu invitations woum tena to increase
the interest of the citizens in the progress- of
the Association, and would induce many to
become members thereof.
The meeting then adjourned, to meet next
Saturday evening.
Mkchanics' and Manufacturers' Ex

well together for fermentation; turn it over
about twice in eight or ten day, at which
time it will be fit for nee. This mixture will
heat more uniformly and retain its warmth
longer than manure alone. Make the bed
about eighteen inches deep and one foot
wider than the frame on all sides. Put

but two days to bring op the heat; then
spread on eight or ten inches of good mold.
1 he temperature of such a bed will answer
all the purposes after the middle of February.
It will do for lettuce, radishes, pepper-grass,
cucumbers, melons, notatoca and nnarairiia
and for cabbage, cauliflower, tomato, egg,
pepper and sweet potatnc plants. Care must
be taken to cover up well at night, and during
the day to give air, if not freezing on warm
days freely. If snow Tails in the night so as
to cover the beds, let them remain so, for the
plants will tnke no harm for several davs. as
snow is a natural covering.

Dr. Wnrdcr did not think that cold Blone

iuuiiu iiv experiment.
On the Subject Of dotlbln-wnrlclno- BiiiJoa
Dr. Moshcr stated a fact in connection with
the Yellow Bclltieur. This tree is known to
ne a sny bearer and unproductive. Mr. By
ron, of Kenton county, Ky., many years ago
planted five Yellow iicllfliiers and one hun
dred liowl.e t Janets. For many years the
latter bore proftisely: the former very spar
ingly. Thinking he had too great a propor
tion Of the Janets, he trrilftpfl anmn nf his
jancts witn gratis trom tho Bellneurs. The
ettect ot this was, these double-worked Bcll
fleurs produced more fruit than all the nriiri-
nal Bellfleur trees, and continued to bear
aDunaantiy, while the original trees boro as
sparcely as ever.
Mr. Petticolag corroborates this by stating
that he had double worked the Black Apple
with the Yellow Bellfleuer and Golden
Kussot, which bad greatly increased in frait
ftilness. Mr. Howarth observed that bo l.nit anon
that ringing the bark of the Quince had
maae 11 proattctive when It only produced
blossoms before.
With regnrd to the destruction of the borer
on apple trees, Mr. Pctticoliu stated that it
naa been very destructive with him on Bell
tleuers headed high, but on those trees
headed low, with side branches nearer the
ground, it had censed its ravages.
Celerration op St. Patrick's Day. The
anniversary of tho birth-day of St. Patrick
was Observed, day before yesterday, by the
members of the Koman Catholic Irish Benev
olent Society, in an appropriate manner.
They met at the Cathedral in the morning,
where Ilieh Mass was celebrated, and nn en-
logy pronounced upon the patron Saint of
me tmera.u isic. A procession, headed by a
magnificent silk banner, and accompanied by
three bands ot music, was then formed, ana,
after marching through the' principal streets
of the city, returned to the Cathedral, where
mass was again sung and the Society dis
missed. In the evening, the United Irish Society
partook of a banquet at the Verandah, over
which Judge Million presided. After the

were read and responded to, nfter which the

Melancholy Attempt a SHi.r-DESTRPction.
A Yot'Nfl Girl SwAlow Poison at
th Door-step or her BEinAYsn. To per
son, who are given to introspection, there is
very little in life to make death hateful; and
to those who, from their own experience, can
form art Idea of the capacity of the human
mind arid heart to i.ifTcr, no efbrt which any
one may make to escape from tho ills of this
planet, can be at all sufprlsinr. On the con
trary, existence, at least, so fnr as regards the
present, when we think how it begins, passes
and ends, seems so utterly toor and mean,
and worthless, that tha wondV. if an v, would
be that a single individual could bo found to
prize it.
Sclf-destnictinn, therefore, would seem to
be much more melancholy and sad from the
circumstances which lead to it, than from tho
act itself. It is not that a soul has passed
from this to another life, but that life has ta
ken the place of death. There is no sun
shine for the hearts, no stars for the mentnl
vision; and from immortality the soul goes
back to chaos.
Much more than this is silfrpested by a cir
cumstance, of which the following aro the
particulars: Nearly a year ajro, a young mnn
who is doing business at a first-class Fourth
street dry goods liouie became acquainted
with a young girl, residing on the same thor
oughfare, who is beloved by all who know
her for her amiable disposition and agroeablo
manners. How acquaintances ripen into
love is too well known to b discribed here;
but tlironirh the ordinary nntli nfnttontinn
on the one hand and a flattered vanity on the
other, the bud, in this case, becomes, at least
to the girl, a beauteous flower.
Unfortunately tho man was not honorable,
and through his determined ellbrta he so be
clouded the mind of her whom he pretended
to love, that, unsuspectingly, sho gave into
his kcct.incr that nrirelt'RS inwel in u. irntnnn'a
uowcr, ner nonor. i ne result may he ens.ly
imagined. She awoke to the reality of the
error into which she had fallen and ran to
her lover for sympathy. About to become n
mother the vision of shame that arose In her
mind, haunted her daily, and the very per
son who should, At such a time, have been a
support for her tottering spirit deserted her.
Dny after day sho sought, and with tenrs
Implored him, by the love he hnd' sworn, to
save her from the abyss into which, in tho
eves of her companions, sho was was about to
fall. Her reputation was endangered, her
peace of mind destroyed, her honor wounded,
the only person who could minister success
fully to her breaking heart refused his assist
ance, and nothing was lcfl to her but death.
Yesterday morning, early, she repaired to
the home of her lover, and lying down nt his
door, swallowed almost an ounce of laudanum.
When the fumily arose aliout six o'clock, they
were horrified at the sight of a woman with
bared bosom and dishevelled hair, half dead
at tho door step. Coroner Carey was imme
diately called, and in his capacity of phys
ician, by the well-directed application of
proper remedies, saved tho life which must
hereafter be a burthen too heavy to bo con
tentedly borne.
Later last evening, she lay nt the house of
her betrayer, partially recovered from the
immediate effects of the narcotic', but still in
danger from congestion of tho brain. How
this much too melancholy affair will termin
ate, wo can not imagine; but if the mnn,
whose name, if he do not tho justice in his
fiowcr, should, and probably will, bo pun
ished to the world, lie not lost to every hon

breast, he wll certainly, by a life of repent
ance and devotion, repair tho injury he has
Lir in the Metropolis A Glance at a
Single Square. There arc few persons, even
among those who have long resided in a me
tropolis, who have even a slight idea of Hie
variety to be found within its limits. Life is
not always what it seems; and where thou
sands of persons are congregated in a circlo
whose radius does not measure even more
than a mile or two, the stateliest piles are
often made tho almdcs of guilt, and what is
admirable when gazed upon from without is
sometimes soul-sickening when the interior
is soen.
Any imagination enn picture a great city,
with its liroad and fashionable street's,
crowded with men and women whom busi
ness and pleasure hurry along its sidewalks;
its parks elegantly laid out, beautifully plan
ned and adorned with trees, and fountains
and flowers; its splendid mansions, vi-here
luxury, ease and content seem to find Para
disaical dwelling-places; its filthy alleys,
where penury, criino and wretchedness find
homes; its splendid churches and brilliantly
lighted brothels; its stores and saloons;
hotels and amusements; but, nfter nil, this is
but an outline and the reality will disappoint
even the faintest imaginings.
Pain and pleasure, wealth and poverty,
virtue and vice, youth and age, intellect mid
idiocy, beauty anil ugliness, health and dis
ease, life and death, walk side by side in the
same thoroughfare, jostle each other in tho
same crowa, snaKe hands in the same drawing-room,
and yet the observer has seen but

A glance at a single squaro in this city

most notorious bagnios in tho city, (hen an
Italian confectionary establishment, then tlio

then a few mote dwellings,noxt to
these the office of a daily paper, and lastly,
one of the finest private mansions in the city.
Within this little space are congregated
Christians and Israelites, Caucasians and ne

not the least pleasant in the city, and the

Row on Wateii-hiuket Man's Skill
Baply Fractured. A parly of men became
involved in a difficulty, yesterday afternoon,
a (lri.iking-hoi.se, on Water-street between
Waluiit and Main, and one of tlioin named
James Tracy was so severely injured that it
thought ho can not recover. Although the
row seemed general, it appears that lie and
another named Jeffries hail a personal ren
counter, during which the latter struck tho
former with a slung-shot, sevoicly fracturing
his skull. Tracy was removed to his residence
Ltidlow-street, where every attention was
paid him by his medical attendant, Dr. Beck,
but late last night he was in such a condition
to render his ultimate recovery very doubt
ful. Some doubt existed as to who had commit
ted the act, until Jeffries was heard to boast
it; but for the present he seems to have
escaped the. vigilance of tlio police, and as
yet no arrests have been made.

Attemped Abduction or an Orphan
Girl Exploits or a Cincinnati Courtesan.
One of tlio chiefest peculiarities of woman is
her intensity. Her loves, her hates, her joys,
her griefs, are all marked by it, to an extent
not known among the sterner sex. Amid
every species of adversity 8he clings to the
object of her affection, eve though she rc
ccivo in return scorn and contempt. Nor is
it alone in the domestic circlo, that her qual
ities shine with a pre-eminent lustre. Sho is
moved with compassion at the sight of
wretchedness wherever found, and ehe per
forms the office of a ministering angel, in a
thousand instances, where men, like Priests
and Lcvitcs, would have "passed by on the
other side." How many or the opposite sex
have been reclaimed, after havinir run a course
of vice and folly, by the little kindnesses
and gentle admonition of their female friends.
It was a woman that rescued, from a drunk
ard's grave, one of the brightest stars in the
galaxy of American literati and statesmen
ii iitium irt and to her constancy was be

iiuiciMcu ior uib success aim lame.
Such is woman's character, as exhibited
among the virtuous masse, of females. But
when once sho has fallen from the path of
rcctituac, when sno has thrown ott the re
straints ol morality and virtue, her degrada
tion is in proportion to her former elevation.
There is no scheme so complicated, or in
famous, in which she may not engage, for,
Protean-like, she assumes nn hundred forms,
and, to accomplish her purpose, leaves no
effort tinnttempted. A circumstance, illus
trating her power for evil, occurred in this
city last wcok, which had well nigh com
passed the ruin of a beautiful girl of sixteen
years, the protego of a highly respected and
well-known widow, residing on Third-street.
A short time since, a female came to the
house of the lady to whom-we have alluded.
and desired a situation as cook. She was
young, rather neat in her appearance, and
dressed in a habit which indicated that she
was what she represented herself to he. She
stated that Bhe was from Cleveland, and
hrought letters of recommendation from par
tics in whose employ she pretended to have
Relying on these guarantees, the lady gavo
her employment. Her oxeeedinir affability
soon won ine esteem oi jicr employers, and
within a few days she managed to gain, en
tirely, tho confidence of the girl, to whom
sho particularly addressed herself. To her
she disclosed the fact that she was not what
she had represented herself; but, on the
otner liana, was a wealthy lady from Cin.
on. .at., resided with an aunt in that place,
and moved in the fushionnhlo circle, or that
city. "I have often observed you while
passing here, she said, "and was struck with
your appearance. I have adopted this guise
mat i may release you irom your guardian.
Go with me, and you shall visit theaters,
concerts, and operas; you shall be introduced
to tho most refined circles of the metropolis.
i i:e . . ' . '
tuiu. your uio win u3 one oi constant enjoy
ment:" Fascinated by the charming picture which
the destroyor knew but too well how to
paint, tho giddy girl hastily consented to
leave a protector that had been to her pa
ternal, and trust herself to an untried com
It was arranged that, in Order to avoid sus
picion, tho girl Bhould assume the habit of a
forvant, go and seek employment where sho
was unknown, until Monday night last, when
the two were to meet at a place indicated
and cross the river in disguise.
Accordingly, on Friday night of last week,
she left home, mid calling at the house of a
man on tlarrard-strcct, represented herself as
an orphan in search of employment by which
to pay her hoard until she could secure a
home. Her honest apieariince and the ap
parent artlcssncss of her story which her
victimizer had taught her at once secured
her the favor sho desired.
Soon after her departure became known,
Officer Francis was called in and his advice
asked. He immediately commenced pursuit,
and on Sunday night tho lost girl was found.
She immediately related all that had been
told her concerning the brilliant career of
fashion to which sho was to havo been intro
duced, nnd detailed all the wily arts that
had been used to induce her to ihe step she
had taken.
Tlio courtesan for such she proved to be
was at once taken into custody, but rattier
than iiniH'.'co the heart burnings incident to
a trial of this kind in a court of Justice, the
guardian of the girl refused to appear against
the woman who had well-nigh ruined the
peace of both hor and her ward. Tho too
confiding girl was received again iuto the
arms of her protectress, and. it is to be
hoped, has learned a lesson ot wisdom that
may fortify her against all the machinations
which may in future be used to iusnare her.

The movements in Dry floods since our lt review
hulicate very little change, if wo except the desire
on the part of holders to close out foreign fahrica in
the auction ns.ni. This process is the only alterna
tive with a large clasa ot importers, ami tho losses
which have Immiu incident to the policy have been
enormous; and it will operate ne the most sure cor
rective of excesslvo importations.
The large profile of Inst year induced many jobbers
to Increase their importations ; ami this, in addition
to the business of the regular Importers, as well as
large auiounts sent forward on owners' account, has
contributed to swell the Imtsirts tna large aggi-egnte,

occurred yesterday afternoon at Jefferson
City, between Jas. Hughes, Deputy-Warden
of the Penitentiary, and Mr. Dozier, formerly
a guard in the prison, resulting in the almost
death of both. The cause is assigned to an
oltl grudge, aggravated by recent political

Dramatic Conduct or Pio Novo. Pio
Nono has been unusually lavish of his pres
ence to the public of late, showing himself
uiicii uu uiui. in nome, aim on me most tre
quentcd promenades. While walking in tlio
Villa Borghcsc, the other dny, the Pope's at
tension was called, by Monsignor Talbot, to
tho children of Mrs. Ross, of Bladonsburg,
whose account of fhc capture of Perugia was
considered so favorable to the conduct of the
Swiss troops, that her descriptive letter of
Ihe affair, written during her summer's resi
lience in n villa near Perugia, was recently
Published ill the official journal of Home,
'io Nono, desirous of showing his iipnret ia-
titm of .Miss Ross's testimonials iu behalf of
the Papal cause, had her children conducted
before him, and solemnly conferred the Apos-
.uii.; uvneiiiciioii upon mem, oi wnicn pro
ceeding the delighted children did not fail to
give a glowing account to their parents ou
returning home.
Golden Wedpino or a Venerarlk Pair.
Captain Jeremiah Holmes, the renowned
gunner of Stonnington, who perilled his life
to save tho place from pillage and fire, and
his courageous wife who fired the first gun
at the news of peace, on the east branch of
Mystic River, recently celebrated their golden
wedding at Mystic Bridgo, Conn. The first
table was surrounded with more than a score
of venerable persons, the average age of each
of whom waa seventy-one years. The ven
erable couple were made the recipents of
numerous and valuable presents.
Terrible Cause or Divorce. The Louis
ville (Ky.) papers say the most singular di
vorce case for the most disgusting offense a '
human could perpetrate was before Judge
Logan, of the Chancery Court, a few days
since. A husband praved a divorce from His
young wife, alleging that she preferred the
tendor embraces of a dog to those of her hus
band; and that she was habitually guilty of
this horrible practice.
Cause or the Removal or the Governor
or Ve.vetia. It is said that the late Gov
ernor of Venetia, Count Bissingen, was ap
pointed because it was supposed that he could
exercise some social influeuce on the leading
families of Venice. But, being able to at
tract to his palace no Italian who wag not a
Government officer, and not a single Vene
tian lady, he was removed.
The Danville, Kentucky, papers, if they are
reliable, say that 1,600 new buildings will bo''
erected there during the present year.
At this point the Ohio-has been gradually,
though stea.tllv, declining since our last issue, and
