The Recent Disastrous Gale at Buenos Ayres—Particulars of the Storm. The telegraph has informed us of the heavy gale, with loss of life, at Buenos Ayres, on the 20th and 80th ult., and the mails give these particulars: During the gale, the water ef the river rose so high that there were three feet water in the lower stories of the new Custom house, doing great damage to the goods stored in them. There were a great many valuable goods stored therein, such as fine hardware, and German and French goods, some of them intended for export up the river, and totally unfit for the Buenos Ayres market; consequently a total loss to the owners, as the government has denied any responsibility for the loss. T lie sea washed away the north and south walls of the gas-works, and inundated the whole of the interior, doing great damage to the works; in consequence of which the City is without light at night. A new fort, which was Duilt north of the gas-works, was likewise destroyed by the sea. About two miles of the Sati Fernando Railroad track, which was ready for laying the rails, was completely rubbed out. The station-house, which was commenced, was washed down, and the wrecks of two Whnle-boats were landed on the site. All the lower buildings fronting the river, on the north side of the Clemada, were some of them completely washed down and others putted the fronts and insides destroyed. The low buildings south of the Custom-house also suffered very much. The whole of the town at the Boco had to be deserted, the families being taken out in boats and carts. On the whole, this has been the most de structive gale they have had in Buenos Ayres for a great number of years. The wind auring tuts gate was wen to tue eastward, throwing a very heavy sea on thecity, which was the cause of the damage. -- The Tribuna of the 1st September says: It is impossible to state at present the ex tent o the loss. The shore Is covered with the fragments of wrecks, and of houses blown down, the gas-houses destroyed, the railway to San Fernando impassable, warehouses flooded in short, a really great catastrophe is the present storm. Proper Instruction the Young—Mode of Educating. The Scientific American, referring to the fact that children are overtasked with school Studies, says: A New York school commissioner, with leather lungs and Cast-iron head, may insist that a child who has been boxed up six hours in a school shall spend the next tour hours in study; but it is impossible to develop the child's intellect in this way. The laws of nature are inexorable. Byadint of great and painful labor, the child may succeed in re peating a lot of words, like a parrot, but, With the power of its brain ittl exhausted, it is out of the question for it to really master and comprehend its lessons. The effect of the sjsteui is to enfeeble the Intellect even more than the body.

In Boston the system of studying out of school has been prohibited in relation to the, girls, and we should be rejoiced to see ill is city take the lead in extending this prohibi bition to all the scholars. We are very glad to see that the time for gymnastic exercises is to be taken from the study honrs, and not from those given to play "Experience hav ing shown," says the superintendent, 'that the scholars learn more when a portion of the time is given to these exercises than when all is devoted to study.1' i Painful Tbaokdy in Illinois A Jealous Lover Stabi a 1'hytician Fatally, and then Commit! Smcide. On Tuesday night of last week, Dr. Bacbman of Rock Grove, 111., was stabbed by one Conrad Baker, it is thought fatally, under the following circumstance: Baker had been working the farm belonging to Widow Spangler,anawas living, it seems, upon terms of improper intimacy with the widow. He had for some time had suspi cions and jealousies of a certain neighbor, who paid, lie thought, too much attention to the widow. On Tuesday night last, Baker, who slept np stairs, heard some one down Btairs with the widow, and supposing it to be the person alluded to, rushed dawn, and finding a man with her in a position which admitted of no explanation, at once commenced an attack. The person attacked, who proved to be Dr. Bachman, defended himself with a chair, but Baker Btabbed him in several places, one of the stabs levering one of his kidneys. Baker was arrested and lodged in jail, and on Thursday night, tore up one of the sheets to his bed and hung himself from the grat ings over his cell door. He was found dead in the morning. ' ' Tbi Most Bhactiftl Women in tbi Wobld A Paradise or Lover. The wo men of Aries, a French provincial town, are said to be the most beautiful in the world. It is not uncommon to meet there three types, the Greek, Roman and Saracen, in all their purity. In personal appearance, char acter, grace, liveliness and conversational power, as a community, they exceed all others. The people of other adjacent places say, "We don t Bpeak as well as they do at Aries." The narrator bought in a shop there a dainty pair of Chinese slippers, in tending to give them to the Cinderella whom they thould fit, when he found her. "You will not have fur to. go," said a sweet voice behind him, aud sure enough, the shop girl put them on, and, though bought and paid for, the owner redeemed his word, and left them in possession. The Aries women dress archly, wear the shortest petticoats, and delight in lace, silks, Moorish bracelets, Maltese crosses and gold ear-rings.

A correspondent of the New York Timet, writing from Havana, October 18, gives the following striking picture of the activity of the slave-trade: , Certainly not within the last decade of years has the African slave-trade been in so active and Drosperous a state as it has been in during the present year. Up to the 30th ultimo there had been at least 30,000 Af ricans, including those taken to Key West and Nassau, landed On this island. There is scarcely a town of any size in Cuba in which th'ere is not a joint-stock African Slave-trade Company, and although the chief slave-traders are very well known to us in this city, yet so canninnlv do they mnnnge their affairs, that it would, be a mat ter of great difficulty to convict any one of them, or an v of their fellow-shareholders, in a court of jus'.ice. I have, however, heard the names of nnny of these latter, who move in respectable circles of society in your city, in Boston, Portland, and in Europe. I for bear sending you any of these names, be cause it would be possibly a matter of some little difficulty to sustain a ploa of justifi cation were an action for libel brought in consequence of their publication. It is com monly reported here that the steamship Granada will arrive here shortlr trom the coast of AfricA with a cargo of Africans. , The slave-traders have various deposits for Africans in the numerous islands in the Ba hamas, whence the Africans are brought to this island, a few at a time, in the mnny coasting vessels trading to every port in Cuba, and these buzaleslas the new Africans are termed) all having the papers requisite for them to possess, and having been taught a few words of Spanish, it is difficult to de tect them from Africans landed a "long time ago." DKCRfPTION OP THB CAFES OF PARIS- Absinthe Drinkers. A Paris correspondent of the New York Albion, thus writes of the cafes: Yet while waiting to find a suitable nest wherein to shelter my muse, I am never weary of lounging along the Boulevards. And still marvelous in truth is the sight; for there one learns to appreciate Paris and to criticize its manners. From the Rue Mont martre to the Madeleine, there may be seen daily, after noon, a most curious and ani mated spectacle. All the elegances and all the vices of Paris are there disnlaved. You are struck, in the first plsa?e, with the innumera ble multitude of cafes. There, to a late hone in tne evening, are seated men and women, before small reund tables, sipping their enp of coffee, their glass of beer, or their sherbet. Cast your eyes on the articles consumed, and you may eenerallT determine the class of society to which the consumer apper tains. . Remark especially." at all hours of the dav. certain connoisseurs devoting themselves to a delicate operation; the right hand armed with a decanter of freshwater, thov let it fall drop by drop into a glass, at the bottom of .which ia povn u iuici liqueur, uuu Decomeg modified and paler in color as drop after arop zaiis in. isaitre l aosmlne is the term given to this performance; and when the treacherous and stupefying drink assumes the tint of a young parrot's plumage, a smile creeps over the lips of the connoisseur, and the poisoned cup is forthwith carrried to them. Drinkinor absinthe is called, in the slang of these gentlemen, tiouffer des pnro gvtts. Poor Alfred de Musset. It was In this miserable practice that he lost his reason ana his Jiie Death or a Danish Dramatist. Johan Ludvig Heiberg, a well-known Danish dramatist and physician, born in Cophcnha- gen, December 14, ivji, died in Kingater, August 25, 13G0. . His father, Peter Andreas Heiberg, was an eminent Danish dramatist and political writer, and his mother wrote a series ot aamiraDie novels on uanian society. He studied the drama at Paris and philoso phy at Berlin, where he became a disciple of Hegel, wrote a number of philosophical, poetical and dramatic works, which have won him a place among the most distin guished literary men of Denmark. Ameng his most remarkable productions are his lyrical poems and his comedies and dramas, which latter have been translated into Ger man. His wife, Johanna Luisi Patger, sur vives him. Previous to her marriage she was an actress a profession which in Denmark is generally filled by ladies of good family, ana which is not considered as derogatory to the dignity of a lady as it is in some other countries. Singular Litebabt Fact Irving' Work Uncalled for During Five Tears. The term of Mr. Irving's contract with his Philadelphia publishers, says Gee. P. Putnam, expired in 1843, and, for five years, his works remained in ttatu gyo, no American publisher appear ing to think them of sufficient importance to propose .definitely for a new edition. Sur prising as this fact appears now, it is actually true that Mr. Irving began to think his works had "rusted out" and were "defunct," for no body offered to reproduce them. Be ing, in 1848, again settled in New York, and apparently able to render suitable business attention to the enterprise, I ambitiously proposed an arrangement to publish Irving Work. My suggestion was made in a brief note, written on the impulse of the moment; but (what was more remarkable) it waa promptly accepted without the change of single figure or a single stipulation. It is sufficient to remark, that the number of vol umes since printed of these works (including the later ones) amount to about 800,000. Allsosd Soctbkkn Inbobrectionists Sin tenckd to bi Hanqid. From Cheraw, South Carolina, we learn that the two Hitchings, concerning whose arrest and trail as abolition -incendiaries an account bos been published, had been duly convicted and sentenced to be hung on Friday next. Additional and crushing evidence had been adduced to prove their complicity in an in surrectionary plot, and this sealed their doom. At last accounts, "Minute-men" were actively forming in Cheraw and the vi cinity. .' ' ' Ahothib StbausC Sunk. On Thursday, the steamer Arrow, of the Norfolk and Eliuti beth City (N. 0.) line, struck against a rock near the first locks, about four miles south of the former city, and sustained such in juries that she went down in a short time after the occurrence. A number of passen gers and a very large quantity of freight were on board, though no loss of lite en sued, and but one package of goods is missing. . PlCKFOCKITS IN TBI TRAIN OF THB PbWCC Upward of $1000 was obtained from the pockets of different persons who followed Lord Renfrew from New York, to West Point. Ladies were the principal suffurers.

Before the Prince embarked, he shook hands cordially with Lord Lyons, the Mayor, the British Consul and others. As the royal barge left the wharf, the British squadron all fired a royal salute of twenty-one guns, and similar salutes were bred trom tne city and from rort I'reble. The harbor was full of steamers, sail boats, barges, tVc, which accompanied the royal barge from the wharf, the latter being surrounded by boats from the royal squad ron, mied witu liritisn otneers. mere was a fresh easterly breeze blowing, and the water ia the harbor was quite rough, so that the boats rowed quite slowly. As the flotilla neared the roval squadron1 the yards were manned, and ttiis, with the strings of bunting and flags flying from every point of the fleet, formed a mag-nifi-cent spectacle, which was witnessed by an immense concourse of people, assembled on Munjoy, the various piers, and every accessi ble place of observation. As the royal party passed the various vessels of the squadron the Prince, was re- ceivsa witn repealed cneers, Rna wnen ne reached the Hero, at ten minutes before four, the royal standard was run up to the "main, and another salute fired by all the fleet. The rigging of each vessel was instantly stripped of its bunting, and the sailors dis appeared from aloft. At nan-past tour tne squadron sailed. steering out of the harbor, the Hero leading, followed Dy the Aite, Ariadne, t lying Fish, and the Styx, saluting and being saluted by the fort as they passed. Some of the military companies came from a distance of fifty riitles to join in the reception, all the military being volunteer corps. Every thing went off finely. The sqnadron will steam only long enough to clear the land, and the remainder of the voyage will be made under sail. The iWie and Styx will leave the squadron off Halifax. Portland. The Semi-annual Miracle of the Liquefaction of the Blood of St. Janarius at Naples. A foreign correspondent of tho New York Herald says in a recent letter: The first liquefaction commences on the first Saturday in May, and is repeated dur ing the seven following days. The second is from the 19th to the 26th of September. It is impossible to give an idea of the anx iety with which the miracle was expected on this occasion. . The church was crowded and the streets leading to it full at an early hour in the morning, the people repeating Aves and Paternosters for the promised miracle. No gem of fabulous value could be guarded with more jealous care than is be stowed upon this. As the priest held the phial up to sight a suppressed exclamation of awe and veneration waa heard from the whole multitude. At first it had the ap pearance of a hard, dry substance, like clot ted blood or aay thing else. It was moved slowly backward and forward, and re peatedly set on the altar those persons who were so supremely happy as to be near, kiss ing the phial with the greatest fervor. At last, after about two hours of masses and genuflexions without number, the sub stance inside appeared to have changed its nature, swelling up into a pasty material. Loud cries of joy resounded from all sides, and a few moments later, when it seemed to boil, changing its color to a bright red fluid, the miracle was complete, and loud acclama tions filled the air from all quarters, among which could be occasionally distinguished, "Viva Garibaldi!" Immediately afterward the cannon from the forts commenced firing, and for the rest of the day it was a regular Fourth of July, winding up with an illumi nation of the whole city. The liquefaction for the remaining six days has proceeded regularly, so there is no doubt that Saint Januarius is quite as well satisfied with Gar ibaldi as the Bourbon: indeed, the priests Bay better, the blood being livelier this time than last May, when the King witnessed it. a i k i Particulars or tub Murder op Dr. Ros cbib.

Raschid, who was absent at the moment, escaped while the murderers were in pursuit of the other servant. He reached Nipassa, and from Sultan Makaka (whose capital Dr. Roscher had just left, after six months' stay,) procured a guard of fifty armed men, and returned and seized the mur derers, four of whom were executed. A Bockcyi Gibl Plays "Akin a" in Un dress. A strange instance of somnambulism occurred a night or two since in Cleveland, in this State. A young girl, often subject to wanderings in her sleep, arose from her bed during the night, put on her night clothes, and went ont into the rear yard. There she divested herself of one article of dress after another, hanging them on a clothes-line, nntil every piece was thus disposed of. Whea the victim of this singular freak awoke, she was endeavoring to tie a pieee of the line to ber ankle, as if te a poet. The girl had been washing clothes the day before, which fact probably accounts for the strange vagaries of her dream. i The Latb Earthquake in Canada The earthquake last week was severely felt at Quebec. In the frame buildings of the sub urbs, especially St. Roch, along St. Vallier street and by St. Sauveur, the shock was very severe, men, women and children rush ing from their dwelling, half dressed, with terror depicted in their countenances, ask ing one another incoherent questions, and receiving equally incoherent replies. In oue instance, a farmer from the country, residing with a friend on Cote d' Abraham, was oa his knees at morning prayer, when be felt the building tottering aud trembling beneath him. . : Arrival or a Savaoi Pbincb in Califor nia, The Hawaian yacht, Emma Roake. ar rived at San Francisco on the 4th, from Honolulu tta Victoria, bringing Prince Lot Kamehameha and party.

Tom Hood's Novel of Tyiney Hall. is well to be always suspicious when the critics pronounce as decidedly a failure any work of a man of genius, which eemed out of his usual routine of thought, fir the im putation put upon such one is usually ad judged from the greater success of his peculiar talont. It is refreshing also to come upon an oluvnre work of a well-known author, and ns we road, see him almost anew. When Tom Hood wrote bis Tylnry Hall, it was for a generation that is fast going by, and the new reader has had too much novelty of late years to research old cata logues for it, or Beck it on the shelves of long-established circulating libraries. It had disappeared from the stores of the book sellers, and few remembered that the genial and comic poet and the laughing wit had ever contrived a thoroughly orgauized novel. In spite of the slurs of contemporary criti cism upon it, our present house thought it worth while, recently, to give it the advant ages of a good modern dress, and I recentlr sat down to read it with all the test that eould be awakened in prospect of seeing the favorite Hood in a new light. It must be confessed that ITood was too much of a wit for the best of continuous composition, and a book of several hundred pages brings him out at variance with artistio propriety m many chapters. And yet Tyl ney Hall is very pleasant reading, for how could it be otherwise, and own the author ship of such a man? Take the volume and sit down to enjoy yourself, aud if you have a liking for llooditm, you can not fail to be pleased. There is pathos in it, not un worthy of him who wrote the Bridge of Sighs. There is humor and a sparkling wit, that reminds one of his best comic verses. There are pithy sentences that come amazingly near the finest sententiousness. There are apt illustrations that go the poiut, in a manner to gratify the lover of such things: and he who has a relish for the grotesque and whimsical, will find, at odd turns, just the humor he likes to encounter. One can even pardon the sly twistings when a pnn enticed him from artistic rectitude, for Hood's mind, ever on the stretch for like surprises, had the happy faculty of selecting, a trouble that most inveterate punsters are not prone to take. Tylney Hull should never ds ignored oy tue mend of Thomas Hood. Desperate Street Fioht in Washinoton. An Estimable Gentltman Shot Dead. iom W Grist, of Washington, D.

Grist was wounded fevcral places. Several people on the street were struck. Grist received a mortal wound in the abdomen, the ball passing entirely through him. Jennt Lind'b Return to Exoland. Jenny Lind Goldschmidt has just returned to England from a visit of somo weeks to her native city of Stockholm, where she was cor dially received by her friends, from whom she had been absent for some years. Her successor upon the musical stage of Sweden, Louise Michal, whom the Swedish critics agree in considering little, if any, inferior, bas lately been married to her cousin, and, in imitation of her predecessor, now signs her name Louise Micnnl Michneli. A Mechanical - Reporter , A Machine for Begisterivg Sounds. The Abbe Laborde has invented an apparatus for registering sounds much less costly than any hitherto made. The invention is interesting, since it is a step toward the invention of machines which shall trad nally advance from register ing sounds to registering syllables and words. As soon as the wit of man has Invented a machine as delicate as the human ear, we shall have reporting machines. The idea is certainly far less astonishing than that of the Daguerreotype before its invention. . Disappearance of a Locomotive in an Ibish Boo. The Irish bogs have to be filled to a great depth before the railroad trains can run over them, and a short time since an engine ran off the track, on the Northwest ern Railway, and instantly sank out of sight.
