Extraordinary Dream of a Bank Teller Extraordinary Dream of a Bank Teller —An Omitted Payment Revealed in Sleep. A gentleman connected with one of the principal banks in Glasgow, Scotland, was at his place at the teller's table where money is paid, wlum a person entered, demanding pavment of a sum of 6. there were several persons waiting, who were in turn entitled to be served before him; but he wns extremely impatient and rather noisy, and, being besides a remarkable stammerer," he became so annoying that an other gentleman requested my friend to pay him his money and get rid of Liin. llediil so, accordingly, but with an expression of im patience at being obliged to it end to him be fore bis turn; and he thought no more of tho transaction. At the end of the rear, which wns eight or nine months after, tho books of the bank could not oe made to Daiance tne deficiency being exactly 6. Several days and nights had been spent in endeavoring to discover the error, Dut without success; when at last mv friend returned home much fatigued and went to bed. He dreamed of being at his place in the bank, and the whole transaction with tho stammerer, aa now de tailed, passed before mm, in all its panics lnrs. He awoke under a full impression that the dream was to lead him to the discovery of what he was so anxiously in search oft and, on lnvestiuation, ne soon discovered that tbe sum paid to this person in the man ner now mentioned, had been neglected to be inserted in the book of interests, and that it exactly accounted for the error in the balance. Commenting on this case, Abercrombio says : "The fact upon which the importance of" the case rested, was not his having paid the money, but having neglected to insert the payment. Now, of tbis there was no impression made upon his minn at tne time, and we can scarcely conceive upon what principle it could ce recalled. The de ficiency being 6, we may indeed sup pose the gentleman endeavoring to recol lect whether there could have been a pay ment of this sum made in any irregular man ner, that might hare led to an omission or an error; but in the transactions of an extens ive bank in a great commercial city, a pay ment of 6, at a distance of eight or nine months, could have made but a very faint impression. And, upon the whole, tbe ease I resents, perhaps, one of the most remarkable mental phenomena connected with this cu Terrible Railway Accident in England— Eight Persons Killed and Many More Wounded. A late London letter says: A terrible railway accident has just oc curred. Eight poor fellows, chiefly cattle drovers, with the fireman of the mail-train, were killed and many injured. The Duke and Onchess ot Montrose, who were in one of the carriages, and your fellow-conntryman, G. F. Train, escaped. It was a collision between a mail anu a cattle-train, at Atner He must have fancied himself back in i America for a time. He writes: "The first two shocks, as we were running rtnnA mi the Trent Vnllnv I.inA. 102 milpH ( from London.

A Modern St. Peter in California—Walking on the Water a Success. The San Francisto (Cal.) Alia California of late date observes: Last evening, Henry R. Roland accom plished the remarkable feat of walking half a mile out into the bay, from North Beach, with his newly-invented and curious water shoes, and will to-morrow repeat the experi ment. These shoes consist of a couple of boat like looking affairs, decked over, and sharp at each end, like asurf or whale-boisj. They are about eight feet long, by eighteen inches in width, and about six inches deep. Near tbe center of each is a hole, as for a mast, lorge enough for a man's foot and leg to enter, and with a canvass booUe extending upwards. Tbe place for the feet below, through these holes, is like any tuodernte sized shoe or boot. The two shoes are placed parallel to each other, and are connected by sliding runners, which travel along the edges or gunwales of the shoes, ttius allow ing them to slip back and forth pist each other, but always in a perfect parallel line, the two being about six inches apart. It is easy to see that without some contrivanoe beneath the water to prevent the backward motion of one foot as the other Was being advanced, the walker would make no pro gress at all, any more than a company would In "marking time." To obviate this difficulty, Mr. Roland has invented a new series of "paddles," or rather "feathers," as he calls them, like the blades of an oar, which can be dropped or fathered up like a duck's legs, at pleasure, hu.o, when the right foot is being siided forward, those feathers are snugly gathered up under the bottom of the shoe, whiletbose of the left foot drop like center-boards placed athwartships, and prevent that foot from slipping backward. Then when tbe left foot is to be advanced, the walker holds water with bis right, and so an. His progress is about at the rale of four miles an hour, and the motion is not only regular, but per fectly secure. ' Each shoe has a little rudder, of which the tiller-ropea pnss up to the hands of the walker, thus enabling him to go in any di rection be may choose. Out of the center of each shoe rises an iron stancheon, between which stretches a light wooden seat, used when in a fair wind; and if the water walker wishes to change leg-power for that of yEolus, he hoists a sail about eight feet "square" (or wide), and about three feet hich. Mr. Roland is indifferent as to the kind of weather in which his experiments are made. He can walk in ever so high a sea, and make good headway. All he wants is plenty of sea-room, and not a very bod surf, so as break over and wash him off his pins. He intends soon to cross over from North Beach to Alcatraz Island, and. being quite a sports man, he will henceforth walk about the bay, from place to plate, in search of his game.' Unfavorable Opinion of Slavery in France. J. are a re markably and it all is in wue hav ing of lard rutui, vic tim, in to been in creased the An Joseph home just ner, told oi days had silk is a As a specimen of convictions which seem to be general, says tbe New York Evening Pott, we translate from a speech of M. Guyho, made on the 3d of November before the Court of Cassation, in which he consid ered "the relations of that court to the de velopment of great social principles." After dwelling upon its other merits, he spoke of its effects on the slavery question, as one of its most glorious movements. He said: We may safely sny that if this old plague of slavery, which the ancient world had be queathed to the modern, has now disap peared from the French possessions, it is in a great part owing to the liberal spirit of your decrees. Indeed, gentlemen, it is a curious spectacle which your jurisprudence offers in this respect. Slavery is assuredly something monstrous. It violates both Di vine and human laws. Nature, religion, morality and philosophy condemn it. But when it bos existed for centuries, and has become a part of tbe customs, feelings and civil transactions of numerous generations, and it involves multiplied interests, anti quity appears to impart to it an appearance of right, which opposes its immediate sup pression, and often maes even justice aud n hi nntnronv ncsnaie. It will be readily understood, therefore, that legislation, in arriving at the annihila tion of the great iniquity, has nevertheless proceeded with slowness, and by measures partial and successive; not like those ignor ant empirics who kill the patient in extract ing abruptly a bullet from the body: but like the skillful and prudent surgeon who oper ates with care so as to hurt no organ essen tial to life. The mission of the Court of Cassation, al though parallel to that of a legislator, diners in its nature and object. Limited by a law which it bas not made and can not modify, it must confine itself to mollifying severity, by a generous interpretation. It was to this limited but beautiful task that it has devoted itself with admirable perseverance as long as slavery had a legal existence. Let any one read its decrees during that period and he will there see how it has known to har monize obedience to the law with profound respect for man as reviewed by Christianity: and with what ingenious sagacity it sought in natural law, in the Roman law and old French laws, liberal maxims, by the of which it threw a few gleams of the light of humanity among the dark shadows of that frightful CodcNoir the very name of which suggests some thing sinister. Cctting-Akt of Texas and Its Dwelling. The cutting-ant of Texas builds subterranean habitations, consisting of cells, sometimes filling an area of ground twenty-five square, to the depth of sixteen feet. Their cells are from six to twelve inches in hight, and are connected by passages from one three or four inches in diameter. From these caverns, where they dwell in myriads, they have been known to dig a passage under a stream in order to get at a garden the opposite side. Their food is both animal and vegetable, consisting of insects, berries, grain and the leaves of trees. They sometimes entirely strip a tree in a Btngle night. In Western and Central Texas, they are regarded as a terrible scourge, and many efforts have been made to exterminate them, but their immense number has made it Thev anpear to be divided classes, some building and repairing cells, some proeurine food, same tending sick aud all having peculiar duties to per form.

The Corpse the Late Czarina of Russia Lying in State—Anecdote of the Emperor Nicholas's Love for his Wife. A London correspondent writes to the New York Timet: Yonder, in the.

Then come in the grand Duchesses and ladies in "black mourning dresses, with double veils flowing to their feet," copachs of the guard, crimson imperial soldiers, the archprieBt with a printing of a saint lowered from a pole, the hearse and eight horses, and all the concomitants living and dead of a procession which would do good to the heart of a Bond-street undertaker all this moves through flakes of falling snow seven miles across a wintry lnndscnpe to the Church of St. Nicholas, at Tcnesme. Kneeling sens or Monjicks line the road. Then there are prayers all night, and watching and praying for I don't how many other nights and days, and mourning, first all block as a raven for so many weeks, and then magpie-like for so many more, and then gray; and at last all will be finished, and one more empress fairly buried and dis posed of in this world. Of this lady a pretty anecdote is told, which would furniish a nice story for Rey nold iliecellany or the Family Herald. When very young, she had a governess, Madame Wildermott, who gave her a ring. The Grand Duke Nicholas came courting the young beauty, and asked her for this ring at the Royal dinner table of Russia. She gave it to him in a niece of bread. In it, it is said, he found tho inscription, in French, of "Empress of Russia." lie wore it all his Hie, &c, &c, and doubtless had it on when he received the news of the burning of Cir cassian villages, ana massacre ot an tne women and children. He must have dan tried that charming tor from his watch- guard when the nuns of Minsk were flogged, and when the news arrived of the news of the sinking of his fleet at Sebastopol. Vandalism in Europe—Devastation of the Tombs of Mighty Monarchs. the feet A correspondent writes tbus of the search among the tombs ef the Abbey in centuries gone by: And now they come upon a corpse in remarkable state of preservation, the body of that mad king for whose recreation, during his insanity, cards are said to have been invented, the celebrated Charles tbe Sixth. This was the same king who held his bacchanel revels in honor of his eleva tion to the throne, so close to the vaults the Royal dead, that the merry feet of the dancers beat time to the music on the mar ble floor of the Abbey Church itself; and as the old Chronicler most quaintly says it: "When tbe night come, it was a true per vigilium veneris, a waker of venus, where many a damsel forgot herself, and many husband suffered." It was certainly a mad revel, and could some of the devout abbots, pious monks and kings have been aroused from the depths of their sepulchral vaults the uproar ot the testival, tney would nave been dazzled certainly, but as cruelly sur prised. The superstition of the times very naturally attributed the insanity of the king to his profanation of this holy place: but the sad story of his endless and varied debaucheries is enough to' ietount for this weakness of the braiu. Now, after centu ries of silence, be lays exposed to an age mad as he was, and whose madmen are hold ing a different kind of revel, though not whit less sacrilegious than that with which he desecrated the sacred pile. As they gazed on the quiet face, whose features the' art of the embalmer had so well preserved, one of the workmen declared that he saw one of tbe eyes open and wink at him, which was the signal to tear it from its resting place of centuries, and hurl among the ghastly rows that were piled all around them. At tbe dead of night, and by the light myriads of torches, the sacrilcgous searchers Btumbled on the Bealed stone-vault, which had for centuries walled in the founder the church, the Solomon of the Franks, mighty Dagobert. It was strange that, in the German legend concerning Charle magne, so here the corpse of the buried monarch hod not started from his cofUned sleep, and rebuked the sacrilegious wretches with the living majesty of his presence. he seemed to nave brooked the intrusion, and they made no longer pause what remained over the body of the church's founder, thsn such ns was required to make the ghastly neap ot corpses stui nigner, the addition of his own.

The Governors of Virginia and Kentucky are arranging for Commissions to South Carolina, to urge de lav. Secretary Floyd has written a letter, for publication, defending secession and joint action of the Southern States. It is now said that Philip R. Clayton will succeed Secretary Cobb. Tribune Correspondence,! The Government is well-informed of the design of the Secessionists to take Fort M oultrie, at Charleston, by a eoup-de-main, as soon as secession is accomplished. THK rSELlNQ IN RICHMOND SECRETARY FLOTD. Richmond, Va., December 6. Secretary Floyd writes to the Inquirer, holding the right of secession, but he would not exercise it until every means had been employed to preserve the Union. He favors a State Con vention. At the banquet last night, strong speeches were made in favor of the Union, and gen erally favoring a Convention of the border States. Mr. Botts opposed the right of secession, and advocated force if the las could not be upheld without. This view was opposed by two speakers. Secretary rioyds letter was written in response to a request of Nathan Tyler. The Inquirer has the following ia regard to the letter: "Mr. Floyd's letter derives additional in terest from the fact that he is a member of the Cabinet from whose head bas just ema nated the most remarkable and mischiovious message ever sent by a President to Con gress. In speaking of slavery agitation he says: 'The agitation of the slavery question. which has been so long and wantonly per- a of of a as a it up of of the as But over Dy neap em- poor What the and day, lua Mr. calm by a hair Bisted in by Northern men, has produced the sectional alienation which is about to find its natural result in tbe destruction of a Confederacy that was voluntary in its origin, and can only be perpetuated by the voluntary assent of its members.' Again, in speaking of the rights of States to secede, he says: 'The States of the South have the right to secede, not only from the very nature of the Federal compact, but by an express reservation on the part of some of them at the time of entering into the Con f'deracy. 'The great danger of the present crisis exists in the fact that in our country all political action is by a popular movement, and all popular movements during the period of angry excitement are from the na ture of things ultra and extreme. The difficulties of the two sections, while the present nnimoisities continue are, therefore, almost insurmountable. The election of Mr. Lincoln is the result of tbe extra and violent Eopular feeling of the North against the outh.'" On discussion, he says: "I am not for seces sion as long as any honorable effort can be made to preserve the Union on a Constitu tional basis, guaranteeing equality, justice and protection of the negro property of the South. 'I believe, however, that the great national interests of the country demands a reconcili ation of the sections, and the preservation of the Union, and I rely upon the slow but certain, the silent but potential influences this great agency to nnng about a settlement of our present troubles. The main struggle of all should be to prevent a collision be tween the sections, anu most especially tne shedding of the first drop of blood. If we can succeed in averting those calamities the great practical business interests ot the country may, perchance, sooner or later brine about a reconstruction of tbe Union and the restoration of harmony between the sections. After this shall be done, who can doubt that a returning sense of confidence will be felt by the injured and exasperated South, and that peace and the Union will restored.' Mr. Floyd says, in record to the Empire City and England: 'Twenty-five years more of union and harmony will coucentrate the commercial power ot tne world in tne waters ot aew York; then the decline of England becomes as certain as was that ot Alexandria Venice, and for the same cause; instead the first, she becomes a third-rate European power. But let disunion take place; let civil war and discord distract this country, England well knows that the Bhips of North must rot at their wharves, and busy bum of tbe manufactories cease for- evtr. I lien, indeed, would England again that she was misties3 of tho seas with out a rival, secure in a commerce which power could ever shake. "t ne ooutn can never count npon friendship of England, the tolerating not her own. Once whhin the reach of power, she will fix upon us the badge of which we are now ready to If we destroy the Union to sacrifice the interests of a class, or even to starve death a few hundred thousand of her sub jects in the laudable task, it will constitute a very ain&u ousuicio in uer policy, it ia fatal error to suppose that tne interests V. aland would prompt her to foster flaunting interests of the South."
