The New York Tribune thus speaks of our fast women : Among the swarms of male and female d tenturers who lead lives compact of subtlety and recklc88ness, and are drawn to (rreat cities by the love of luxury and by the surer field there afforded for a campaign against society at large, the roost subtle and danger ous ot all would seem to be that arch adven tures the modern fast woman, Her pro totype existed ages' since, as long ago as when Sampson bartered every thing for De lilah; or, later, when "Thais, like another Helen, fired another Troy." You can trace her down to latter times, through all histori cal fact and fiction, finding her likeness in many a comedy of Moliere, in many a novel of Fielding, or print of William Hogarth. But it is in the exciting and fortune-making modern American life that she has more fully developed her operations, gaining, at pleas ure, the entree to our changeful and not over-scrupulous upper circles, and having her own wiclied say about half of our real life trngndy and farce. It Is only now and then that the career and terrible influence of the fast woman are impressively set before the public. An act of violence is committed, a bank forger ruins his family and himself a broker comes to grief, sua to the story of his wicked excesses, there is the invariable fast woman accom paniment. She does not share the criminal's trial and conviction, however, and the world's interest in ber soon passes by. But she is everywhere and busily present in American citits, and in Mew York most of an. i.ook, tor a moment, at ner method and apnenrauce. The fast woman is by no means a common harlot. In nine cases out of ten she has never walked the streets, nor boarded in a house of bad repute. - Only once in a while one of the vulgar sisterhood rises, by superior shrewdness and ecomplisbments, to the ranks of the demi-ntomU. The fast woman affects the private boarding-house. But the hotel is the place to which she trains un questioned access, where she lives, most at her ease, and is enabled (in her own lan guage) to bat; the. moat game -Ajd it k owing, first of all, to the wretched, con glomerate, American hotel system, that fast women of late abound in such numbers, and are so dangerous to society. , . Monstrous Indian Superstition—A Chief Kills his Grandson and Burns his Body! Sotde weeks since. twO men were sent from Lower Fort Garry to the west side of the lake, on a fur expedition. In the vicinity of 'Jack Heads ' they fell in with Mr. John visited "Thick Foot's" camp, and there learned mat " t nicK r oot s Drotner naa Kiitea nis grandson, a boy of ten or twelve years of age, peing apprehensive tnat said Doy was Decom inir a vt uioieoo. w e may tniorm our un itiated readers that according to an Indian tradition, that if this youth had once tasted human flesh he would have become as inr penetrable to lead or ttel as ever Archilles was, after emerging from the river Styx. It was to obviate so aire a calamity, that the Indian patriarch, with all due solemnity and ceremony, perpetrated ine tragical deed, cy burying his ax in the skull or his grandson! Not satisfied with crushing his head to atoms. his superstitiousurcr impelled him to cut up tne remains and ourn toem to cinders, in order thoroughly to extinguish any latent vital spark i which h b might, by any possibility, a ,iWindieoo.ft Tradition germinate into a "Windigoo. also taught, that when any body had fairly commenced eating human flesh, nis heart be came a solid mass of ice, and hence we are told, as a matter of great moment, that the young heart burned like every otner heart, presenting no symptoms ot guctjuaoont An Experiment Touching Sap in Tries.

A Florida correspondent of the Charleston Couritr maintains that It is practicable to cultivate in that State, all the tropical fruits and staples by the side of those belonging to northern climate. He says t- All who tnay be skeuttcal on this sublcct can be readily convinced bv a visit to the Southern portion of the Peninsula, where they can see the cocoa tree, the banana, the fuantain, tne pine-apple, tno orange, the emon. the lime, the arrow-root, the miava. Ac., growing ss luxuriantly as they doln any le West India Islands. There is certainly no portion of the United States North, South. East or West that can compare with East Florida in the variety and the value of its agricultural productions. It produces well all the roots and the grain crops of the jaortnern states, and an tne great staples ot the Southern States, in addition to the still more valuable productions which belontr ex clusively to tropical productions. It is ow ing to the latter productions that even the interior lands in that Peninsula can be ren dered much more valuable than the best lands in any portion of the United States. Oranges, lemons, pine-apples, cocoanuts, and various other tiopicel fruits wi.l yield an average of at least $1,000 per aero, per an num. Sisal hemp, it is said by those Rest in formed, will pay $2,000 to the acre. Indeed, it would oe teaious to discuss tne great va riety of tropical fruits and staples, the cul tivation of which would render the common pine lands of East Florida far more valuable than the bttt nirricultnral lands in any other portion of the United States. - New Portrait of Irving. Powell's portrait of Woshinirton Irvini the same recently exhibited in an unfinished state at the Irving Testimonial it the Acad emy or music says the flew York evening Port, has been completed by the artist, and is now on exhibition at Knoedler's trailer v. corner of Broadway mid Ninth-street. Mr. Irving is represented as seated by an open window in his library at Sunnyside, bis head resting on his right hand, while on the table before him is a half-written page. To the left of the picture are several shelves filled with books, prominent among which are two huge old tomes marked "Chronica de Es- pana," wnue tue tomuiar names ot Milton andShakspeare ore on other volumes near by. Through the open window are seen the waters or tne nuoson, gilded with tne rays of the setting sun, which shoots its gorgeous light through rich summer clouds before de scending behind the. Palisades. Mr. Irving is seated in an easy position, and appears to be momentarily resting from his literary labors. His countenance betokens quiet thought. In the adiolnine room Mr. Knccdler ex hibits some exquisite water-color paintings by various artists. The subjects aro varied, including fancy figure sketches, views of old castles and ruins, bits of English and Welsh scenery, and little composition landscapes. In the show-window of the establishment charming little oil-painting, by Jerome Thompson, attracts considerable attention. It represents an old New England farm house, half-covered with moss, with moun tains in the distance, and few figures in the foreground to enliven .the scene. : Extraordinary Railroad Accident. The way possebirer and freight train, on the Hudson Kiver Railroad, that left New York a day or two since, met with an acci dent in the afternoon, as It neared the bridee wbtch erosses tne Wed Jllll UreeK, back of ureennush. The accident was caused By the misplacement of a switch. The train was composed of one passenger and three freight cars, also a platform car. . When the train left the track, the engineer and fireman each supposed mere was no possiDie nope to pre vent the whole train from going down an embankment some twenty-five feet high. Each "jumped from his position.' The train kept on, cuttine through the sleepers and plowing up the earth. After running thus about one hundred feet, the platform and two ot tne treignt cars Became oetocned trom trie tender, toppled over and went down the em bankment Two of them -were smashed to atoms, while the other was not badly dam aged. The third freight car fell over, bnt did not go down the embankment, and the pas senger cor kept the track. Tne locomotive kept on its way till it reached the edge of the abutment of the bridge. At this point it wab stopped, by the wheels digging so deeply into to eartn mat tne cowcatcoer came in contact with the stone work. . Here the loco motive rested.

A Hindoo1 Idea of an American Winter. Mr. J. C. Gangooly, the converted Brah min, now studying theology in Massachu setts, gives, in the Trantcript, the interesting account of his experience of snow and cold weather ! Wherever I go the first thing I am asked is my impression of the winter. "How do you bear our New England winter, sir." uoes not tue weutner etlect your nenun: Ac, are the inquiries of my friends. In nn- swer, I would sny, I bear the cold as well as anybody, and like the American winter, it Is so full of new and amusing scenes to ine. ueiore coming to tne western country i nan read about the western winter of water frozen so hard that heavy teams easily pass over it of the ground covered with snow several feet deep. ine accounts 1 believed in part, and the rest sounded to me like a grandmother s story. Of course I saw ice in Calcutta im ported trom Hoslon, but was puzzled to Know how water could be so hard by freezing. This was a very natural perplexity, because I naa no iara ot tne tiling at an. vv nen l tout the ladies here that the Hindoos boil simple milk so hard thut they make dolls, flowers, Sc., out of it to adorn their tables, they naraiy oeueved it, until i did tne experiment before their eyes. They, by their own hands, made flowers of different shape and size, which, by half an hour, became as bard as a rock. As It was a year before last May that I came to this country, I inquired of my friends now soon tne snow would tan and water freeze. I used to look through the windows early in mornings to see if there was any snow on the ground. In September I no ticed something white spreading over the ground. I rushed out In ecstacy, and told my friends about it. Can you imagine my disappointment when they said it was mere frostl In Boston I saw the first snow. As tonished, I stood to watch the flecks fall inn from the sky. "Father," said I, "thus Thy blessings fall upon us, abundantly and im partially; upon the good and the evil alike.' i wisnea very mucn tnat my Bengalee friends could see such a sight; and fiadiug it was impossible, thought of some way to send them a little relic of the white mud. I made a solid heavy snowball, which seemed so dur- nDie in tue open air tnat i nopeo to send it to India by the first opportunity; took it to Mr. .u. s ano careiuuy put it on tne mantei-piece. Need I tell you the result? it is well known to you all. In my letter to Bengal I described tie leading feature ot tne American winters, but could not write anything about freezing; hoping to do it by and by, after I had some experience of it. My health is, on the whole, better in this country. My friends tell me to eat meat, even it it was a very little, and drink some warm arinx, out i can not ao so. l never ute any meat, or used any drink but that which comes out of the bosom of our mothei earth. Now and then I wish to be in India to see the laud smile, the flowers bloom, nnd the birds sing in these months. On the late Christmas your churches were decorated with leaves only there were hardly any flowers there. In Calcutta you could cover the church yard with a few dol lars' worth of flowers, you could entertain a party of twenty ladies and gentlemen, for in stance, with fourteen kinds of fruit, at the ex pense ot two dollars, contrasts line these create a bit of home-sick in me, but I cover it up with the garments ot duty, and go on my way rejoicing, singing and giving glory to the Most High. A Flattering Picture of Boston. Boston, according to the rather biased Opin ion of the Pott, is to-day the second com mercial city In the United states. Her im ports in 1859 were $41,174,070; her exports f l, 1 7H, no, and ner tunnage was jo,0ii tuns. UOBton has nearly one-halt ot tne registered tunnage of Now York, and these two cities combined own more than one-half of the entire shipping in this country that is engaged in foreign trade i. e., i,:4t),ouu tuns, out oi 2,400,00Otunsof registered shipping. Boston owns more than double the tuns of any port save New York. The last was an unfavor able year for her commerce, the amount of it iieing less than during some preceding years. This was owing, of course, to the financial disasters of 1H57, the effects of which still continue. The future increase of our com merce can not be doubted. The present year is to connect us with the Southeru States by new and important lines of steam ships. And the present and prospective fa cilities for reaching the West and Northwest will further stimulate our commerce. As a city, the nearest to Europe of any of the great cities of the land, with a fine harbor, and being, perhaps, the most desirable residence for a merchant of any city in the land, she promises to maintain her present rank, and greatly to increase her commercial powers. John Morrisset in New York TheFanov Excited. On ' Friday evening, John Morris Bey, the noted pugilist, arrived in New York from Boston, and no sooner was it known than the "fancy" became terribly excited. Rumors of a fight between Morrissey and the friends of Heenan became current, and it was not long before there were numerous inqui ries of the damage done, at nearly every bar room in the city. There was no fight, how ever, and the returned muscleman visited the Sporting-houses without meeting any enemies desirous of awarding him the punishment they had so often and so loudly vowed was his just and certain due. At Keefc's saloon, aear the Metropolitan Hotel, he was recog nized by a large number of acquaintances, some of whom were quite cool in their man ner, but nothing was said of the part he played in the late fistic combat on the shores of Old England. It was very clear that Mor rissey has Tost many friends among the sport ing fraternity, but he does not seem to mind it in the least. It was said, during the eve ning, that he would challenge Heenan to fight him, for from $5,000 to $20,000, and that be intended to make a defense of his conduct through the columns of a morning paper. The police are apprehensive of a row should he moke his appearance in any prominent sporting house, and will, in consequence, take every precaution to prevent trouble. i The Temperance Cause in Massachu setts. A letter from Haverhill, Mass., says: One of the most striking movements of the times in this vicinity is that existing in the temperance cause. For more than eight years no effort worthy the name of one, has been mode here. A moral power has recently been brought to bear for the revival of the cause, and with the most gratifying success. The effort was first commenced late in the winter, by Mr. Adami, and the result thus far has been the establishment of three large and powerful organizations, embracing male, female, and juvenile membership, which is bringing back much of the spirit and enthu siasm 01 tho oia WHsningraman movement.

A well-known print-seller in New York has just published an elegant lithographio por trait of the Prince of Wales. The face is that of a youth of great personal beauty, who wears the decorations of the order of the Knight of the Bath. The Double Education of Man. Henry Word Beecher said in a late sermon: There is a double education going on under many circumstances. You will find that many worldly and bad men worship a great deal; and for this reason: that it is possible for a man to worship and be a vilhan. A man may educate his conscience and not be a good man. There is no trouble in a man's being very devout, and yetbeing a scoundrel. A bandit will not hesitate to stiletto you and rob you, who would not pass by a pool with an image of the Virgin Mary besijle it, with out stopping to cross himself. It is quite possible for pride and selfishness and worldly feelings to be developed along with con science. But where conscience is so edu cated that it teaches a man what is right everywhere and under all circumstances, where conscience is so educated that it eomes to have a fine edge, where conscience be comes operative in every part of a man's life, then these lower tacumee cannot bear sway in his mind. Now a man that attempts to live by one schedule of duty, on holy days, and by another on secular days, is attempting to serve two masters that are jealous of each other and conflicting. I suppose this is the reason of the leanness of many Christians. They so demoralize themselves by the in fluence of worldly things, that when they go to church their moral nature, drugged and trampled upon as it has been, can scarcely lilt itself up; and when it does lift itself up, it lifts itself up to warn and protest. And there can be no growth of grace in a soul that is attempting to carry an outward and an in ward life ui at are in antagouism. We stock our lives, by attempting to serve God and Mammon, witn just those very enemies which Christ was sent to overcome and set us free from. . . - Men lose that simplicity and luminous peace which belong to Christian lifo, by at tempting to carry forward their plans and purposes under double and conflicting mo tives. Where, for instance, the deep and master springs of a man's courses are selfish. and tho ostensible motives that impel him are benevolent, he is dividing himself, and developing the elements of a moral conflict. Ail over tne suriace ot his selhsit courses mny be bubbles of moral feelings, but they are like bubbles that reflect for a moment the colors of heaven, and then break. The cur rent of his real being flows on deep, strong, and unwrinkled even by these momentary glimpses of right. Thus a purpose may arise and grow strong in wrong feelings; but to let it go under its own colors would be im politic in business, and inconsistent with one's character ana standing in society. And so the heart beats one thing, and the tongue ar o ner i tear there are lew men that would dare sail under true colors. There are few that carry their real purposes at their mast head. There are few that cou d sav of the things that they really mean. "I mean these things for such and such reasons." There are lew men that can avoid dressing up bud motives in tne garments oi better ones. Wendell Phillips on Wm. Lloyd Garrison. Wendell Phillips thus writes In the last number of the New York Independent; . Who then is William Lloyd Garrison? The most hated man in all America, upon whom the malignant eyes of twenty millions of people have been fastened for thirty years. But, though living under such a scrutiny, and while press and pulpit have vented with out stint the grossest misrepresentation of his purposes and creed, no lip has yet been found reckless enough to breathe a doubt ef the spotless purity of his private life; or to suspect that he acts or refrains from acting, speaks keeps silence, from fear of man, love of gain; or desire of applause. Utter uprightness, honest intention, transparent sincerity, fear lessness in speaking his own thoughts, and entire willingness that every other man's should be heard; a life of ceaseless and unself ish toil for others these have never been denied him. And all this, so much to say any man, seems bo inning ana negative merit, side by side with bis eminent services and brave life, that hardly any one takes note 01 11. The most familiar book to his litis is the Bible, and the first suspicion of infidelity he excites comes from his asserting that tho "Book of books," as he calls it, docs not sanction human bondage, while the whole unurcn, urougn tne lips ot Anoover and rnnceton, asserts tuat it does. In all these pure and Christian labors he seeks no aid agui nst slavery and intemperance but that of enlightened reason and a Christian conscience; appeals only to the highest mo tives; attacks slavery as a sin, hateful to God, and as such calls on men to quit it; holds the standard of moral purity and rigid right so l. : . .1- a l. .

Holding up tne most unpopular and mo mentuous cause that our age has stirred, instead of aid from organizations that call themselves Christian, their opposition, re buke, tlander and violence have dogged his steps. The most Christ-like man of the age, tested by his spirit and labors, engaged those tasks which alone save our faith, here and now, from the well-deserved scorn of the unbeliever, will be truly known only when history digs out his character from beneath the lies with which professed Christians have cumbered and blocked his path. Timely Interruption of a Wedding Ceremony —A Man With Five Wives. A man calling himself G. W. Board, but whose real name is supposed to be Thomas Board, his aliatee being G. W. Boardman. J. H. Board, and G. W. Brown, was arrested a few days ago at Owensboro'. He had capti vated a lady ot that city, and was about to lead her to the hymeneal altar, the invited guests having assembled to witness the nup tials, when it leaked out tuat the gentleman had gone through that ceremony oflencr than the law allowed, in Texas and other parts of the Union. He is a native of Jenkins County, Va, where be has an interesting family still living. He visited Richmond, Texas, in the fall of 1858, and married a lady by the name of Mason. He had previously married a widow in, ooutu uaionno, out 00 coining tired of his prey he left and made for Hannibal, Mo., where he married again. His stay in that section of country was of short duration, ana tne next wo iieard 01 mm wo.; in Louisiana, where he again married a lady of the Southern clime; but not being easily satisfied he made his way up the Ohio River aud tarried atOwensboro', where he succeeded in making a great many acquaintances, being largely in funds, and would have succeeded in his designs had it not been for the timely interference of some gentlemen as stated above. He is a man oi engaging manners, very dressy, and of wiuping ways. . The Great Eastern Once More. Cant. Vinehall has been appointed commander of the Ureal t,attern.

The narrow streets are entirely full of them. All classes ride in them. They are the pecu liar institution in Havana. The hotel would make you laugh. The rooms look out on a hollow square. They have no windows, and iron gratings for doors. Your bed is sacking, with a sheet stretched over it. A table and a chair, and posiibly a wardrobe, are the only furniture. Everybody can look into your room, but then you can make reprisals by looking into all your neighbor's premises. These caves are twenty feet high, and seemed quite grotto-like when you have retreated to their extreme recess. At tne same time, monsieur Le Grand s eating-room and tables are really sumptuous. The servants eat in the entrance ball, not twenty ieci irom tne street. The streets of the city are very narrow, and tho side-walks sufficient for one only. A street twenty leet wide is quite an avenue here. The awnings often stretch entirely across the streets. The stores rarely bear the names of the traders. 1 his one is called the "Zephyr," the next the "Hope." Then follow the "Queen," the "Granada," the "Hope," the "Unique," ftc, fcc.

Forewarned, I in formed myself what the legal charges were, i pay and walk off, sometimes amid a shower ot npanish oatos. . The dwellings have no glass windows, Projecting iron gratings only stand between the crowd in the street and the family in the parlor. The ladies often sit close up to the gratings, and the public can see every article iu the rooms.-". Occasionally an acquaintance stops and chats at the gratings. In the even ing the chairs are set in two rows at right angles with the windows, and the family and visitors sit face to face, the different sexes on opposite sides, chatting with each other, re gardless of the passing crowds who almost brush them, and can look in upon them. or of a A Splendid Pistol Shot. There recently resided in St. Louis a young man, Charles I). Paul, whose extraordinvry feats at pistol shooting have lately attracted much atten tion. From a letter received from Atchison. K. T-, we learn that on Monday last Mr. Paul astonished the natives of that place by win ning a match to pierce an apple with a pistol ball three times out of five, at a distance of three hundred feet. At two o'clock in the afternoon, says the letter, the young man mounted the board and fired. The apple re mained stationary, and the crowd which had assembled to witness the extraordinary fent walked up to it, conscious that the mark had been missed. They soon found, however, that thev were mistaken. The ball had per forated the apple, passed directly through the center of it, and lodged in a tree behind it The second shot struck the mark a little to one side, splitting it into many pieces, while the third scattered it in every direction. Thus the match was won in three instead of five shots, and our young friend hod two bul lets to spare aiier acnieviug ui victory, 11 Singularity or Japanese Trowsers.

A machine has been invented by M. Combarieu and submit ted to the English Goverment, for making type. At present, the characters are moulded one by one, and are finished up afterward, passing through two or three hands. M. Combarieu, by his machine, produces 10,000 of these characters at one stroke. Each let ter is then separated by a mechanical saw, which divides them with mathematical pre cision and regularity. The consequence of this invention will be production increased per cent.; exactitude and regularity hitherto unattainable; the use of harder metal, which Will AVU1U 1UQ IIV4UCUI icu.nai ut (.iuk:,, material, and the redaction by one half of the outlay.

There was a regular tutsel,. which frightened half tile women out doors, soreaming; but Adams ext'icated himself, and Bruin was harnessed up, so that he can inaici no runner injury to anyone, Five years ego Mr. Adams lost the urjuer Dart of bis skull in conflict with a fierce Rocky Mountain grizzly bear, and has suffered iiuu. uio 1TUU1114 aru oiuv.
