We learn from the officers of the steamer Priorttt that quite an exciting affair took place, night before last, at Aurora, Ind.. in regard to a couplo of negroes who had escaped from Hamilton, Kentucky, and crossed the river at the former place, where they remained secreted until detected by their masters, who, as soon us the exodus had been discovered, started in pursuit. The par ties belonged to a couple of men named Ar nold and Connor, and when they had been ferretted out and an endeavor made to return them, a desperate effort was made by their friends to secure their final escape, but being overpowered, the runaways were finally ta ken buck to Kentucky. Clubs, bowlders and even pistols were freely used in the encounter, but, so far as we were able to learn, no one was seriously injured. A Jdvenili Fatalist. We know a little boy, not more than five years of age, who, apparently, believes in the doctrine or fatal ism as firmly as did the Stoics. To him all things are subject to fate, and take place by an iuvincible necessity, which exists in the things themselves. He proclaims his peculiar ideas in a manner wholly his own, and takes advantage of every opportunity to promul gate them. A day or two ago. aa most boys are in the habit of doing, when he had no fear of detection, he went to the cupboard, and was helping himself to some sweet-meats and preserves, when an aur t, of whom he is qnite fond, entered the room, and detected him in the indulgence of his appetite. " Oh, you little pilferer," said she, "don't you know that it is naughty to steal?" "No, aunty," replied he, "is it wrong?" "Yes," said his aunt, thinking she had an opportunity to teach him a great moral les son, "God dislikes little boys who take things thai don't belong to them ; and if your play mates should discover it they would call you a thief, and von wouldn't like that, would you?" "Well, Aunt AUIe," Raid the heteroclitic little reasoner, "didn't God make mo ?" "Yea," she replied, half-amused and half divining what he was about to say, " and he will be very angry if you do so again." "Well, then,'' be answered, V I am a thief it's God's fault, aud I can't help it I" . This reply effectually closed the argument, and the unorthodox juvenile scampered off, to fly his kite, and find another evidence, if Sosslble, In favor of bis somewhat reasonable leory.

Mr. Ellsler's benefit last night was not attended so well aa It ahonld have been, although the audience was vary fair. The perform ance was quite an agreeable one, and, to Judge from the applauae, passed off to the entire eetlefectlon of all who were present. Mr. Kllsler Is an excellent manager and a good actor, la hla managerial career he haa been eminently anoooesful, and, In cones.

[To be read seriously—the "laughing part'' will appear next week.] The "golden mean" of which people talk so much is now discovered to be money. Unless offense be noble, why did Shaks peare say "th1 offense is rank." Any woman that loves you will die for you when there is no need of sacrifice. An infallible method of finding happi ness turn to Webster's Dictionary. Patience, like children, becomes strong by exercise. An aphorism of the Gymnosophists, not generally known, was: "No mannas reason to curse his fate who is not married." Lexicographers are the best reformers, for by their aid we can altv ays find peace, love, power, and all desirable things. Few men of intelligence and character but understand women; while hardly any woman, since creation, ever comprehended man. Why was Pryor's recent decline to fight Potter with Bowie-knives a great natural curiosity 1 Because it was a mammoth cave. The reason persons lose their aimiability by an accidental fall is because they are al ways off-ended. There must bo an intoxicating influence in hanging, as ail culprits at the gallows hare a drop too much. It is often said that women are ruled only through their affections, which fact may ac count for their being so ungovernable. A man. It would anne.ar. is fre.nnantlv called versatile because he can show himself a tool in various ways. If a young woman does not wish to harden her lover's heart, why does she aiei&i in The distinction between death and mar riage is, that in the former, one's misery is over; in the latter, it has only begun. Many persons, it is said, are enemies be cause they do not know each other. They are oftener such, because they do. A maxim forgotten by Rochfoucault : When a woman comptetely understands her lover, his reign over her heart is foreverat an end. The heart has but one language, and that is universal. Who understands it is our brother or sister, though strangers born in different zones. The kisses women give each other are a compromise between their modesty and de sire. They are forms only; their spirit is in tended for the opposite sex. Our commercial exchanges complain of mo luoicuco iuuuu m cuiton. w e nope me don't allude to the many matrimonially anxious Misses of our country. Women once dressed, they now undress, to receive company. How a belle of the E resent day, at an evening party, woulci lush to be caught with all her clothes onl A gentleman remarked after hearing a young lady execute a fantasia on the piano : "She promises well." "Yes," replied an other; like all her sex, she promises well ; but her performance is very poor." LAW REPORT. SUPERIOR COURT. Usury. Caroline M. Reed vi. C. E. Wood ruff. Judge Hoadley held in this case that when a party sues to recover back usurious interest paid, tbe action can not be main tained unless the claim comes within the ex ceptional case provided for by the statute namely, that the note has been assigned. Right or Lessees to Removi Buildings. Price vs. Gelvin. Motion to dissolve an in junction restraining lessees from removing frame tenements, on Front and Plum-streets. Judge Hoadley held that the rule of the com mon law had been much relaxed in favor of tenants; and where it appeared that the struc tures could be removed without material in jury to the soil, and had been erected with out any intention of making them a part of the freehold, they couid be removed.

Murderous Assault Upon a Woman. A man named Peter Brouhy, night before last, visited the house at No. til Vine-street, and during a dispute with a woman named Nealy, drew a knife and stabbed her in the right side, wounding her quite badly, although not dangerously. The knife struck a rib and glanced off, otherwise it would probably have been fatal. Bropby was before the Police Court yesterday morning and com mitted in default of-bail in tbe sum of $1,000 for his appearance next Friday, to answer the charge of stabbing with intent to kill.

LATEST BY TELEGRAPH. XXXVIth CONGRESS—FIRST SESSION. WASHINGTON, May 8. SEN ATE A communication was received from the Postmaster-General relative to dead letters, and referred to the Committee on Postoflices. Several unimportant memorials. Ac. were presented. Mr. Pearce offered a resolution to provide for the observat'on of the total eclipse of the sun on the 16th of July next. It authorizes the employment of a vessel to transport not more than five astronomers to some point where the eclipse can be best observed. Mr. Pearce made some remarks in support of the resolution. Mr. Brown expressed the anprehenslon that it would cost too much. A similar expedi tion was fitted out before to determine the paral'si of the sun, and instead of $5,000, it cost $50,000. Mr. Iverson Delieved that the Uovernment had no such power as that contemplated in the resolution, it was an on-shot of old WhiB-irerv. Mr. Pearce said that if the Senator meant to say he was an off-Bhot of old Wbitrcrerv. be was correct. He adhered to that party as long as existea. ne wouia adhere to tne Democratic party with equal fidelity so long as it remained what it now was, the only conservative party in the country. If the Senator meant more, he was mistaken. The Coast Survey, to which this matter belonged, was established before the Whig party existed. After further debate the resolution was agreed to. Mr. Brown presented a bill for deepening the channels of rivers emptying into tne vxuu oi mexico, ana auinonsing cer tain States to levy tunnage dues. Referred. Mr. Davis's territorial resolution came un. Mr. Clingman finished his remarks com menced on Monday, arguing at length In fa vor of Congressional non-intervention, and the propriety of loaving the matter to the decision of the courts and against putting a canainnte tor rresiaency on a platform on which he could not be elected. In the course of his remarks he referred to Douglas, Hun ter, Johnson and others, as equally good Democrats whom he would be happy to sup port. Mr. Benjamin followed. Ife suoke at some length, asserting that the Cincinnati Plat- nirm, properly construed, was sufficient. Under what circumstances was that Platform offered at Charleston? It was with the un derstanding that it had two interpretations, Mr. Pueh denied this. Mr. Benjamin replied that it was admitted time and again in the Convention. It was avowed, also, that if the Convention nut unon it that the citizens of the South hnd a right to nolo, property in tne Territories, and the Legislature nad no right to affect that right, that not a single Northern State could be carried. That was a fraud upon tbe good faith and honor of the Democratic party. It was unworthy of the Democracy to go into the canvass on a platform wearing two aspects. He would enter into the contest on no such platform. Let their principles be oinzenea in letters oi ugntupon their Banner, anu upon mem let mem siouu or rail. Mr. Clinprman contended that the Cincin nati platform embraced all the principles re quisite for a candidate. Mr. Douglas proposed to reply to Mr. Davis on Thursday. Mr. Wade gave notice that he should press tne nomesteaa diu to-morrow, unless over ruled by a majority of the Senate. Mr. Douglas thoucrht it would have been better to nave pressed it before he was at tacked than alterward. Mr. Davis said he bad not attacked Mr. Douglas. He had only advocated certain principles. He desired a vote not an inter minable debate. Mr. Douglas was willing to speak then ii me senate preier. After a further debate in Executive session, the Senate adjourned. HOUSE.

Bishop Baker announced that in accord- fl.np.ft with e- rnanliitinn nf thai HnnfaMn.. Bishop Morris would deliver a funeral ad dress on the late Bishop Waugh, at half-pact bon c iiuuy uiuriiiug. Upon resuming the order of business, an tncneciuai attempt was made to reter all peti. tions and memorials without readinir. A petition was presented from Baltimore asking that all in the church discipline re lating to the Subject of slavery be stricken out, and the whole subject be referred to the Annual uonterence. A memorial from the Black River Confer- ence, asking that probation preachers be au thorized to solemnise marriatres. and one from the Cincinnati Conference in favor of the admission ot children to full membership, were referred to the Committee on Revivals. The committee which was ordered to prepare a plan for a Court of Appeals, and report to day, made the following: The Court of Ap peals shall be a Standing Committee com posed ot the BiBhops and one member from each delegation elected bv the respective delegations. The right of challenge for cause snail oe awarded to both parties. The tourt may excuse members for sickness, interest or other sufficient reasons. At least two-thirds of the whole Court shall hear tbe case, a maiontv of whom shall be sufficient to determine it. An amend ment to allow fifteen members of the Com' mittee to render a verdict was rejected. After an hours debate tile report was adopted, the Conference deciding that the question of the admission of an appeal should be settled by the Court itself. The previous action of the Conference in appointing special Courts of Appeal was rescinded. A resolution was ot tered and referred to the Committee on Re vivals in favor of amending the discipline so as to allow of the election of Presiding Elders instead of their appointment by theBisheps.
