Fearful Adventure in the Highlands of
Scotland—Narrow Escape of Three Tourists.
The Manchester (Eng.) Guardian, received
by the last steamer, observes :
Three tourists have narrowly escaped a
terrible fate in the Highlands. The other
morning they left Ballachulish. intending to
reach Fort William that night, but in at
tempting a short cut, were misled by the
false direction of a peasant. "On, on we
walked," writes one of them, " till darkncs3
was around us, and we became fully sensible
that the mists were gradually rolling down
the hills like gigantic snowflakes, into the
valley; and to add to our troubles, one of
the party began to break down. It was
now, for the first time, we became seriously
alarmed ; nnd, dragging our weary compan
ion along with us, wo hurried on in the
vain hope of finding the shepherd's hut.
Alas, we were told that no such hut had
ever existed in that direction, nor ever was
likely so to do, nor was there ever any road
or a trace of one. The mists were now clos
ing in upon us. Not a sound save our own
hushed voices was to be beard. It was close
upon nine o'clock, and nearly dark. Our land
mark had long since disappeared, and we
were at length impressed with the idea
that we were lost.
Now, indeed, we began to be seriously
alarmed. Ye were all hungry, and soaking
wet, butfnot exhausted. Our last drop of
whisky had been drank, and a little oaten
cake was all we had with us. At last we
saw below us what seemed to be an immense
sheet of mist; but, after somo half hour's
descent, we found it to be a lake, which we
afterwards supposed must have been Loch
Treig. Hope whispered that here there
must be a humnn dwelling of some sort, so
we kept close round the borders of the lake
till we came to a stream, which we followed
iu its course over a scries of water-falls, the
noiEe of which, at that hour, in that vast
solitude, and with our nerves unstrung, was
somewhat appalling. Aronnd us all was
mist and darkness; below us, some 100 feet
or more, we could hear the stream surging
and bellowing, although we could only just
discern the thin, white line which marked
-its course, n e dared not proceed, lest we
should fall over into the chasm beneath, and
we determined to rest where we were till
morning again dawned upon us. It was
now approaching to midnight. AVe undid
our knapsacks, divested ourselves of our wet
garments and put on dry ones, tied handker
chiefs about our loins and heads, enveloped
ourselves in our plaids, and, thrusting our
feet into our knapsacks, commendeif our
selves to that watchful Providence in whom
in this hour of distress and difficulty wo
placed our hope.
When the dreary night had at length
FiiFseu, huh unyuKut succeeaea 10 aaritness,
discovered that the tree against which I
had supported myself projected from the
rock, and had I slept and swerved a little
either to the right hand or to the left, I must
uave ueeu iirvcipiuiivu miu lue aoyss oeiow,
100 feet down, and most likely da3hed
to pieces. About seven o'clock in the morn
ing the mist had sufficiently cleared to al
low us to resume our wanderings. We di
vided our oaten-cake into two portions; one
half we saved lest we should have to be ont
another night, and the other half we divided
into three equal shares, and this about two
ounces each with .sonie water, constituted
our morning's repast.
After traversing the stream wo had fol
lowed the previous night, we struck back
into the highlands, and after wandering about
four hours and a half we again heard the
sound of running water, which we continued
to follow, until, joy of joys! we came upon
the hoof-print of a pony. No red Indian
ever tracked the footsteps of his enemy with
more intense satisfaction than we followed
this mark of a living animal along the side
of the stream and through a most beautiful
glen. We then came upon a sheep-pen, a
bridge of poles, a gate, and other indications
of humanity; and now the joyous fecliugs
rushed upon us that we were saved.
Extenbivb Robbery in London Thirty
Thousand Dollari Worth of Jewelry Stolen
and Jitcovered. The London Examiner, of
late date, says:
On Tuesday morning an extensive robbery
of jewelry, of the most costly description,
was found to have been committed at Ilaw
ley & Co.'s, a large portion of the most valu
able part of the stock having been carried
off. An inquiry soon led to the discovery
that the plunder had been effected by v.
Giles, a youth of eighteen, employed as
messenger to the establishment, and in whom
groat confidence was reposed. It seems that
Giles left the premises very early in the
morning with two carpet-bags filled with
diamond rings, gold chains and bracelets,
find a large quantity of miscellaneousjewelry,
and, being met by some acquaintances with a
man carrying the bags, on which was the
name of Osborne, he told them he was tak
ing bis master's luggage to the railway sta
tion. Some of the most expert officers in
the detective force were at once set to track
the delinquent, and a full description of his
person was sent to all the metropolitan and
Drovincial nohce stations, and 500 reward
off ered for his capture. The precise value of
the property stolen nas not yet been ascer
tained; it is, however, estimated at between
5,000 and 6,000. Giles has since been cap
tured in Paris, and will be brought before
the magistrates in London in due course.
The whole of the valuable property has been

A Jealou Wfe Violently Assault) the Sen
sational Artist. On Sunday night, in New
York, the jealous wife of a reporter of the
New York Herald visited Adah Isaacs Men
ken's lodgings, and finding her husband
there in conference with the fair actress,
burst into the room, and, seizing her,
scratched ber pretty face and tore her lux
uriant tresses, until Adah cried murder vo
ciferously; whereupon several persons rushed
in and interfered in time to prevent further
injury to the ex-wife of the Benicia Boy.
The reporter, with his wife and Adah,
was then taken to tlie Police Office, where
the journalist declared he had gone to Mrs.
Menken s apartments only to take down
short-hand report. This the wife denied in
dignantly, intimating very naughty things
of her consort and Adah. The matter was
arranged, however, at last, and the parties

Tom Hood's Pathos—An Analysis of his
A writer in the November number of the
Atlantic Monthly thus speaks of the pathetic
writings of Tom Hood :
Hood's pathos culminates in "The Song of
the Shirt," '-The Lay of tho Laborer," and
'Tlie Bridge of Sighs." These are marvellous
lyrics. In spirit and in form they are sin
gular and remarkable. We can not think of
any poems which more show the mystic
enchantment of genius. How else was a
ragged seamstress in a squalid garret made
immortal; nay, made universal; made to
stand for an entire sisterhood of wretched
ness? Here is the direst poverty, blear-eyed
sorrow, dim and dismal sullering nothing of
the romantic. A stern picture it is, which
even the softer touches render sterner; still
there is nought in it that revolts or shocks;
it is deeply poetic, calls into passionate ac
tion the feelings of reverence and pity, and
has all the diguity of tragedy.
Even more wonderful is the transforma
tion that a rustic hind undergoes in "The
Lay of the Laborer," in which a peasant out
of work personifies, with eloquent impres
sions, the claims and calamities of toiling
manhood. But an clement of the sublime is
added in "The Bridge of Sighs." In that
we have the truly tragic: for we have in it
the union of guilt, grief, despair and death.
An angel from Heaven, we think, could not
sing a more gentle dirge or one more pure;
yet the ordinary associations suggested by
the corpse of the poor, ruined, self-murdered
girl are such as to the prudish and fastidious
would not allow her to be mentioned, much
less bring her into song. But in the pity
almost divine with which Hood sings her
fate there, is not only a spotless deUcacv,
there is also a morality as elevated as tlie
heavenly mercy which the lyrist breathes.
The pure can afford to be pitiful; and the
life of Hood was so exemplary that he had
no !ear to hinder him from being charitable.
The cowardice of couscience is one of the
saddest penalties of sin; and to avert suspi
cion from one's self by severity to others is.
indeed, the . most miserable expediency of
self-condemnation. The temper of charity
nnd compassion seems natural to men of
letters ana of art. They are emotional and
sensitive, and by the necessity of their vo
cation have to hold much communion with
the inmost consciousness of our nuture; they
thus learn the weakness of man, and the al
lowances that he needs; they are conversant
with a broad and diversified humanity, and
thence they are seldom narrow, intolerant
or self-righteous; feeling, too, their full
full share of moral and mortal imperfection,
they refuse to be inquisitors or the un
fortunate, but rather choese to be their ad
vocates and .helpers.
No man ever had more of this temper than
Hood; and out of it came these jmmortal
lyrics upon which we have been comment
ing. For such a temper the writing- of these
lyrics was exceoding great reward; not only
because they made the author an everlasting
benefactor to the poor, but also because they
became an interpretation of his own deeper
genius, nnd revealed a nobler meaning in
bis works than had ever before been dis
cerned. Henceforth, he was more thought
of ns a profound poet than as the greatest of
mimes, jesterR and punsters. Tho lyrics of
the poor saved him from imminent injus
tice. .

Important Decision fob Government
Clerks. The Attorney-General has just
made a very important decision, which will
be highly welcome to Government clerks.
Mr. Hunter, Chief Clerk of the State De
partment, having served under Secretary
Marcy as acting secretary in the absence of
the latter, has for a long time claimed extra
salary for bis services thus performed. The
Attorney-General has now decided that he
is entitled to it, and that any Government
employe, if he perform services which do not
strictly pertain to his office, is authorized to
draw tor the pay of that office the duties of
which he has been fulfilling. This decision
will cost Uncle Sam a great deal of money.
It is customary, if the heads of Department
leave town for a short time, for tlie assistant
secretaries or chief clerks to take their places
in their absence The latter will now re
ceive, in such cases, the Balary of their head
officers, and these, it is presumable, will not
forget to draw their pay also. There is,
however, nothing about that part of it in the
Melancholy Case or Hydrophobia in
France. A little boy, twelve years of age,
son of a couple residing at the village of
Oreteil, near Paris, on the 27th ult., sud
denly rushed from their house with his eyes
filed and glaring, and with foam on his lips,
and he ran alunt; the stseet attacking aud
attemptiig to bite almost every person he
met. A gendarme at last secured him,
though not without difficulty, as, notwith
standing his youth, he made a considerable
resistance. A medical man, having exam
ined the boy, declared that ne was laboring
under hydrophobia, and he was sent to a
hospital at Paris. It appears that in April
last he was bitten by a dog belonging to his
father, and that, by way of precaution, the
wound was cauterized, and the animal killed.
The wound healed promptly, and no ill
effects were apprehended, but no tioubt can
now be entertained that the animal was mad
at the time.

A Satirical Sketch of a Worthless King—
A Satirical Sketch of a Worthless King— Thackeray's Pen-portrait of George IV.
The October number of the Cornhill Maga
zine says:
To make a portrait of him at first seemed
a matter of small difficulty. There is his
coat, his star, his wi, his countenance sim
pering under it: with a slate nnd piece of
chalk, I could at this very desk perform a
recognizable likeness of him. And yet,
after reading of him in scores of volumes,
hunting him through old magazines ana
newspapers, having Iiira here at a ball, there
at a public dinner, there at races, and so
forth, you find you have nothing nothing
but a coat and wig nnd a mask smiling be
low it nothing but a great simulacrum.
His sire and gTandsires were men. One
knows whatthey were like; what they would
do in given circumstances; that on occasion
they fought and demeaned themselves like
tough pood soldiers. They had friends whom
they liked according to their natures; ene
mies whom they hated fiercely; passions,
and actions, and individualities of their own.
The sailor-king who came after George
was a man: the Duke of York was A man,
big, burly, loud, jolly, cursing, courageous.
But this George, what was lie? I look
through all his life, and recognize but a bow
and grin. I try and take him to pieces, and
find silk stockings, paddings, stays, a coat
with frogs and a fur collar, a star and blue
ribbon, a pocket-handkerchief prodigiously
scented, one of Truefitts best nutty brown
wigs reeking with oil, a set of teeth and a
huge black stock, undcrwaistcoats, more
undcrwaistcoats, and then nothing. I know
of no sentiment that he ever distinctly ut
ttred. Documents are published under his name,
but people wrote them private letters, but
people spelt them. He put a great George
P. or George R. at the bottom of the page,
nnd fancied he had written the paper; some
bookseller's clerk, some poor author, some
man did the work; saw to the spelling;
cleaned up the slovenly sentences, and gave
uie lax mauaiin sup-siop a son oi consist
ency. He must have had an individuality;
the dancing-master whom he emulated, nay,
surpassed the wig-maker who curled his
toupee for him the tailor who cut his coats,
had that. But, about George, one con get
at nothing actual. That outside, I am cer
tain, is pad and tailor's work; there may be
something behind, but what? We can not
get at the character; no doubt never shall.
Will men of the future have nothing better
to do than to unswathe and interpret that
royal old mummy? I own I once used to
think it would be good sport to pursue him,
fasten on him, and pull him down. But now
1 am ashamed to mount and lay good dogs
on, to summon a full field, and theu to hunt
the poor game. ;
Remarkable Scandal in Havana Two
Free-Love Ladies the Cause of their Hus
bands' Prefermetit. A correspondent of the
New Y'ork Times writes from Havana:
Some two or three years ago there was an
exquisite piece of scandal in circulation in
this city, in which the names of two married
ladieB of great beauty, the Senoras M and
J, were represented to have hada regular
"pitched battle'' respecting the favors that
both were said to have granted a certain
General, then in high authority in this island.
The affair took place in a summer-house in
the garden of the country residence of the
General, near Puentcs Grades, and has been
recently called to public recollection by the
circumstance of the husband of one of the
ladiesk Senor R M , having returned
from Spain, with his wife and family of seven
children, with an appointment to an office
quite new in this island, viz : "Inspector
General of Banks," with a salary of $1,000
Jer month attached to it, while Don J. S.
. the husband of the other lady, whose
uanie was so freely handled in connection
with the scandal, and who at the time was
an Alderman of this city, and was an ad in
terim Judge of the Heal Audencia (Supreme
Court), and who aUo, with his wife, has gone
to Spain has been appointed I'irfor (Judge)
of the firal Audencia of Burgos, in Spain.
These two appointments have created auite
a sensation in certain circles in this city," and
1 heard an employe of the Government, at a
large evening party at which I was present
htt week, Bay : "There is little chance ot my
advancement just at present I had not a
pretty wife when Gen. was here."
A Brutal Prize Kioht Stopped by a
Sister op one of the Combatants. The
Troy (N. Y.) Times, of late date, says:
A difficulty occurred at a ball given on
Wednesday night, between two men named
J. Wheeler and Jack Braun, which culmi
nated in a challenge to a fistic combat, in ac
cordance with the rules of the London prize
ring. Yesterday, about two o'clock, the
parties left in carriages, accompaniod by a
numDer ot menus, tor tne scene ot coniiict,
which had been chosen on the Poestenkill
plank-road, about three miles from the city.
The fight was begun in regular and approved
fashion, and had progressed , to the sixth
round, when an unexpected interruption oc
curred, in the arrival of a sister of Brann,
who came in a carriage, rushed between the
combatants, and, throwing her arms around
her brother, put a stop to the melee. The
bruisers, shamefaced by the arrival of the
woman, scattered and left the field. So far
as the fight progressed, Wheeler was the worst
sufferer. One of his eyes was closed, and he
was otherwise badly bruised about the head
and face.
Destructive Fire in Havana Lou Sixty
In Eighty Thousand Dollars. A recent letter
from II avana says :
A large fire took place at the Plaza del
CiUto (a market place), in this city, between
the hours of one and two o'clock A. M., on
the 10th inst. Several liquor-stores and gro
ceries were destroyed, as also property vari
ously estimated at from $00,0o0 to $30,000
value. The bomberos (firemen) excited my
laughter; they brought the water in iron
buckets, emptying them into a large square or
oblong water-cart, whence agaiu it was con
veyed by the buckets to the fire-engines,
wliii h threw streams of water through inch
nozzles almost fifty feet high. The idea of
at once emptying the water into the fire
engines, or a suction-hose, never appears to
have entered into their heads. It is ludeed a
great blessing that fires are of so rare occur
rence in this city, and that the houses are built
of not very inflammable material, for as to the
engines extinguishing a fire, the thought is
simply ridiculous.
Stories of Lord Renfrew's munificence
abound. It would be curious to know exactly
bow much he has spent in largesses during
his tour. It is stated on good authority that
before he left the White House he drew his
check for $500, to be distributed among the
President's servants. In return Mr. Bu
chanan addressed an autograph letter filled
with the warmest expressions of regard to the
Q icen-mother, Victoria, in which he spoke
in terms of studied, yet sincere compliment
of her son, the future monarch ef Great
Britain, and declared his satisfaction at his
visit. If Lord Renfrew has exercised his
generosity on this scale all through his tour,
it is easy to credit the report that the ex
penses of his party, since landing in Canada,
nave been a couple ot millions.

Bacchanalian Orgies of Princes and Dukes
An Old Nobleman Made Beastly Drunk.
The Cornhill Magatine, in its October is
iue, relates an anecdote, in which "the finest
gentleman in Europe," as it was the fashion
to coll the last of the Georges, does not
figure very creditably :
And now I have one more story of the
bacchanalian sort, in which Clarence nnd
York, and the very highest personage of the
realm, the great Prince Regent, all play
parts. The feast took place at the Pavilion,
at Brighton, and was described to mo by a
fentleman who was present at the scene,
n Gilray's caricatures, and among Fox's
jolly associates, there figures a great noble
man, the Duke of Norfolk, called Jockey of
Norfolk in bis time, and celebrated for his
table exploits. He had quarreled with the
Prince, like the rest of the Whigs; but a sort
of reconciliation had taken place, and now,
being a very old man, the Prinre invited
him to dine and sleep at the Pavilion, and
the old duke drove over from his Castle of
Arundel, with his famous eqnipasre of gray
horses, still remembered in Sussex.
The Prince of Wales had concocted with
his royal brothers a notable scheme for
making the old man drunk. Every person
st the table was enjoined to drink wine
with the Duke a challenge which the old
toper did not refuse. He soon began to see
that there was a conspiracy against him; he
drank glass for g!a33; he overthrew many of
the brave. At last" the first gentleman of
Europe proposed bumpers of brandy. One
of the royal brothers tilled a great glass for
the Duke. He stood up and tossed off the
drink. "Now." says he, "I will have my car
riage and go home." The Prince urged' upon
him his previous promise to sleep under the
roof where he had been so generously enter
tained. "No," he said, "he had had'enough
of such hospitality.''' A trap had beeu set
for him; he would leave the place at once
and never enter its doors more.
The carriage was called and came; but, in
the half-hour s interval the liquor had proved
too potent for the old man; his host s gen
erous purpose was answered, and the Duke's
old gray head lay stupefied on the table.
Nevertheless, when his post-chaise was an
nounced, he staggered to it ns well as he
could, and, stumbling in, bnde the postilions
drive to Arundel. They drove hira for half
an hour round aud round the Pavilion-lawn;
the poor old man fanciedhe was going home.
When he awoke that morning he was in
bed at the Prince's hideous house at Brigh
ton. You may see the place now for six
pence; they have ndalers there every dav;
and sometimes buffoons and mountebanks
hire the Hiding House and do their tricks
and tumbling there. The trees are still
there, and the gravel-walks around which
the poor old sinner was trotted. I can fancy
me uusneu laceg oi uie itoyni rnnces as
they support themselves at tlie portico-pil-larB,
and look on at old Norfolk a disgrace;
but I can't fancy how the man who perpe
trated it continued to be called a geutleman.
The Pbieb-ring Another Mill on the
Tapis. A match has been made between
Aaron Jones, the English pugilist, and
George King, of Cleveland. The New York
A'eusaf late date says:
Last evening a couple of the friends of
Aaron Jones, the well-known English boxer,
accidentally encountering a warm admirer
of George King, one of the heroes of "Vil
lett's Point," at a public drinking saloon in
the Bowery, nn excited nrgument took place
as to the relative fighting qualities of the
two men. After variou? propositions had
been offered and rejected by the respective
friends of the principals, it was finally
agreed upon that a match should be made
for $1,000 to settle the question of superi
ority, and $50 was po3ted on the spot. By
the terms of the agreement, $200 more is to
be put up on Wednesday, nnd the fight to
take place in four months from the signing
of articles.
It appears that King is very much dis
satisfied with the result of his recent exploit
with John Wood?, of Boston, and the oppro
brium which was heaped upou him in con
sequence, and he has, it is said, been keeping
very quiet ever since, awaiting nn oppor
tunity to prove his prowess. King is an
Englishman by birth, but has lived in Bos
ton for many years. In this affair with
Woods it was generally thought, and he was
openly accused of acting, cowardly. This
match will give new zeal to talk in sporting
circles, ana uiu winier win yet auoru some
excitement to admirers of ring tactics.
Picture or a Household Drudoe An
Over-Conscientious H'omoii. The author of
"Mrs Gilbert's Career" says:
The story of the late Mrs. Dr. Gilbert is the
story of many another woman; "Bhe was
asleep she was resting. She had been asleep
for two years. She had rested quietly in the
Crampton graveyard during all this time,
- ninaing up lost Bleep. one nau Deen Hur
ried through life, and hurried out of life.
She had bent every energy to realize ta Dr.
till be rt his idea ot a woman ana a wile. She
had ambitiously striven to match hiu in
industry to keep at his side in all the enter
prises he undertook; but her stock of strength
failed her in mid-passage, and she had fallen
by the way. She had known no rest no re
pose. 1 here was not a room nor a piece of
furniture in her house that did not give
evidence of her tireless care. Her Sabbath
was no day of rest tq her. She taught: she
visited tne jioor, sne managed. tne village
sewing-circle, she circulated subscription pa-
fieri lor cnarities, sne auenaea au tne re
igious meetings In sunshine and storm: and
what with maternal associations, and watch
ing with tne sick, and mithtul care of ber
own family, she wore herself quite away, and
faded cut from Dr. Gilbert's home, and from
tne sigiuor tier cnuuren.
Everybody mourned when good Mrs. Gil
bert died, but everybody drew a long breath
of satisfaction, as if it were pleasant, after all,
to think that she was resting, and that no
body could wake her.
The "Cope or Honor" in the South Des
perate and Fatal Duel in Louisiana. A des
perate ana latai duel was lougni in Bt. ban
dry Parish, a few days since, near Opelousas,
between Alphonse Bienvenue, Deputy
Sheriff', and Girard Fournet, which ended in
the almost Immediate death ot r ournet.
The particulars of the fight are enough
make us shudder, when we recollect that two
? gentlemen consented to go upon the field
lonor, with such conditions as made
necessary for one, or beth of them, there to
lose their lives. However, iu the present
instance death alone could end the rencoun
ter. Each of the combatants went upon the
field, armed with two revolvers and a Bowie
knife; they were stationed twenty paces
apart, with instructions, at the word, to fire
and advance at will, the fight to end with
the death of one or both the parties. At the
second fire, Mr. Fournet, having been struck,
staggered and fell, but not without retaining
both strength and courage enough to fire
twice more upon his adversary, but without
effect. We know not the cause of the diffi
culty. Thev were both brave and true men,
and behaved gallantly to the last.
A KNocKiso-orr-llAT Mania. A citizen
of Berlin, Prussia, a man in comfortable
circumstances, is periodically attacked with
a desire to knock off hats. He afterward
makes up the loss to the astonished victim
of this strange fancy by the payment
three thalers. According to the calculation,
of his family, in the part year be has been
obliged to make good the loss of 267
hats. At a recent musical festival fifty
three tiats were sacriiied to this curious
frenzy, and for the evening's euterlkiuuieut,
