One day, a good many years - ago, voting woman knocked at the door of little cottage' in the suburbs of a little town of Ncwcas'e-upon-Tyne. The knock was immediately responded to by the open ing of the door within. An aged women neatly dressed and who had evidently risen from iier wheel, was sole inmate of the little cot. "Bless your heart, girl," said the dame, as she entered with her v'sitor, and sat down to the wheel again, '.'there roust sure ly be somethiug particular to-day, for you did not use to knock. "I was afraid some one might be with you, mother, said the girl, who had taken a seat opposite the spiuner. "And though a neighbor had been here, replied the dame, "this, surely, would not have frightened you awny. oat the truth is, you have something to say to me, Cath arine, continued the speaker, kindly : "out with it, my dear, and depend on the best counsel old Hannah can give. The young woman blushed deeply, and did not speak. 'Has William Hutton asked you to be' come his wife, Catharine f said the dame, who easily and rightly anticipated the mat ter that iras in the thoughts of ber youth ful visitor. "He has, mother," was the reply. "Well my dear, said she after a short pause, "is not this what you have long ex pected, aye, and wished ? He has your heart, and, I suppose, it needs no witch to tell what will be the end on't." This might be very true, but there was something on Catharine's mind which struggled to be out, and out it came. "Dear Hannah, said she, seating herself close by the dame, and taking hold of her hand, you have been a kind friend a pa rent to me since my poor mother died, and I would not until I had spoken to you, more especially as something as yon once said" "What did I say, Catharine !" interrup ted the old woman ; "nothing against the man yon lore surely. He is, from all I have seen and heard, kind-hearted, indus trious, and every way well-behaved." "Yea, Hannah, replied the woman ; "but you once said, after I bad brought him to see you, that you did not like those those sort of low tats that sometimes fell upon him, even while in your company. I have often noticed them since, Hannah," contin ued Catharine with a sigh. "Plague on my thoughtless tongue for saying ssch a thing to vex you, my . dear child 1 He was s soldier, you know, a good many years ago, betors be was twenty and fought for his country. Perhaps he may bave seen sight then that made cim grieve to think upon, without blaming him self. - But, whatever it, may be, 1 meant not, Catharine, that yon should take such passing word to heart.". If he has some little cares, you will easily soothe him and make him happy. ... As the worthy dame spoke, ber visitor s brow gradually cleared, and, after some fur ther conversation, she left the cottage, ightened at heart with the thought that her old friend approved of her following the course to which her inclination led her. Catharine Smith was indeed well enti tled to pay respect to the counsels of Han nab. The latter had never married, and bad spent the greater part of her life in the service of a wealthy family at Mor peth. When she was there, the' widowed mother of Catharine had died at Newcas tle; and, on learning of the circumstances, Hannah, thongh a friend merely, and no relation, bad sent for the orphan girl ten years of age, and had taken care of her until she grew fit to maintain herself by service. On finding herself nnable to con tinue a working life longer, Hannah retired to Newcastle, and Catharine immediately entered into sen ice there Hannab and Catharine bad been two years in these respective situations, when the dialogue wnicn nas just oeeu rocurutu look piace. On the succeeding expiration of ner term of service, Catharine was married to the young man whose name bas been stated as beine William Hutton. He was a joiner by trade, and bore, as Hannah had said, an excellent character. The first visit paid by the new married pair was to the cottage of the old woman, who gazed on them with a truly maternal pride, thinking she bad never seen so handsome a couple. The few years spent by Hutton in the army had given to his naturally good figure an erect manliness, which looked as well in one of his sex as the light graceful figure, and fair engenuous countenance of Cath arine was calculated to adorn one of woman kind. Something of this kind, at least, was in the thoughts of Hannah. when Catharine and her husband visited the dame's dwelling. Many a future visit was paid by the same parties to Hannah, and on each successive occasion the old woman looked narrowly, though asjunobtrusively as possible, into the slate of the wife's feelings, with a mother ly anxiety to know if she was happy. For though Hannah, seeing Catharine's affec tion deeply engaged, had made light of her own early remark upon the strange and roost unpleasing gloom occasionally, if not frequently, observable in the look and man ner of William Hun ton, the old woman was never able to rid her own mind alto gether of misgivings on the subject. For many month atler uatnanne s marnge, however, Hannah could never discover any thing but open unalloyed happiness in the air and conversation of the youthful wife. But at length Hannah s anxious eye did perceive something like a change. (Jath anne seemed sometimes to fall when vis iting the cottage, into fits of abstraction, not unlike those which had been observed in her husband. The aged dame had felt greatly distressed at the thought of her dear Catharine being unhappy, but for long time she had held her peace upon the subject, trusting that the cloud might be a temporary one, and would disappear. It was not so, unfortunately. 1 hough in their manner to each other, when togetL er, nothing but the most cordial affection was observable, Catharine, when she came alone to see Hannah, seemed a prey to some unesiness, which all her efforts could not conceal from her old friend. Even when sbebecame for the first time a mother, and with all the beautiful pride of a young mothers love, presented ber babe to Han nah, the latter could see a secret grief imprinted on Uatbanno s brow. Hoping by her counsel to bring relief, Hannah took an opportunity to tell .the vouncr wife what she bad observed, and earnestlv besought her confidence. At this, Catharine stammered forth hurried assurance that she was perfectly happy, and in a few seconds belied her words by bursting into tears, and owning that she was verv unhappy. "But 1 cannot, Hannah, she exclaimed, "I cannot tell the cause even to you 'Don't say so, my poor Catharine," re plied Hannah; "it is not curiosity that prompts me to interfere. J, no, Hannab, replied tne young wife; "I know you speak for love to rue. "Well then continced the dame, "open your heart to me. Age is a good adviser." (Jalbanne was silent. "Is yuor husband harsh to you f " asked Hannah. 'No," cried the wife; "man could not be kinder to woman than he is to me." "Perhaps he indulges in drink; in,' "Hannah, you mistake altogether," was Catharine's reply; my husband is free from II such faults as ever man was. My dear cm la, said tuo old women, almost smiling as the idea entered ber head, "yon are not suspicious not jealous ! "1 never bad a moments cause, Hannah, answered Catharine. "No, my griefs are not of that nature. He is one of best and dearest husbands." Old Hannah was puzzled at these re plies, as she was distressed at the open avowal of Catharine's having some cause of sorrow; but, seeing that ber young friend could not make up her mind to a disclosure at this lime, the aged dame gave up her inquiries, and told Catharine to think seriously of the property of con fiding all to her ' ' Hannah conceived that on mature con sideration, Catharine would come to the resolution of seeking counsel at the cottage. And she was not wrong. In a few days after their late conversation, the young wife came to visit Hannah again, and after little embarrassed talk, entered upon the ubject which was uppermost in the minds of both. "Hannab," said Catharine, "I fear vou can serve me nothing; I fear no living be ing can serve me. U, Hannab, gcod as my husband appears to be good as he is there is some dreadful weight pressing upon his mind, which destroys his peace and mine, too. Alas the gloomy bts, hich vou, as well as I, have noticed in him, are not, I fear, without cause." Catharine wept in silence a moment, and then continued : "All that I know of this cause arises from his expressions his dreadful expressions while he is asleep at my side. Hannah, he speaks in broken language of murder, Hannah! Perhaps a woman deceived and killed by him." As Catharine said this, she shuddered and buried her face in that of her babe, which she carried in her arms. Hannah was shocked to hear this, but her good sense led her to suggest for the poor wife, that it was impossible for her husband to consider himself a murderer in is sleep, and speak of it, without the ightest reality in the whole affair. "Ah, Hannah, said Catharine, sadly, these dreadful sayings are not the result of one night-mare slumber. They occur often too often. Besides when I heard iin mutter in his sleep, these horrible things, I mentioned the matter to him in the morning at our breakfast, and he laugh ed at it; but he grew agitated and telling me to pay no attention to such things, as be sometimes talked nonsense, he knew, in his sleep, be arose and went away, leav ing his meal unbnisbed indeed, scarcely touched. I am sure he does not know how often he speaks in his slaep, for I have never mentioned the subject again, though my lest is destroyed by it. And then his fits of sadness at ordinary mo ments! Hannah, Hannah, there is some mystery some terrible mystery under it. "Yes," continued the young wife, "he is so good, so kind, so dutiful to God and to Man. He has too much tenderness and feeling to harm a fly. Hannah, what am to do, for 1 am wretched at present." It was long ere the old dame replied to this question. She mused greatly on what had been told her, and iu the end said to Catharine, "My poor child, T cannot believe that William is guilty of what these cir cumstances lay seemingly at hie door. But if the worst be true, it is better for you to know it than to be in this killing suspense forever. Go, and gain his confidence, Cath anne; tell him all that has come to your ear, and sav that vou did so by advice, Hannah continued to use persuasion of th same kind for some time longer, and. r length sent Catharine home, firmly resolved to follow the counsel eiven her. On the following day, Catharine once more presented herself at the abode of Han nah, and as she entered, exclaimed, "Dear mother, I have told him all ! He will be here soon to explain everything to ns both. The old woman did not exacly compre hend this. "Has he not," sho said, "given any explanation to you f "No Hannah," said Catharine; "but, 0, ho is not guilty. When I bad spoken as you desired roe, he was silent a long time, and he then took me in his arms, Hannah and kissed me saying. "My darling Calh- aune. I ought to have confided in you Ion before. I have been unfortunate, not guilty, Go to kind Hannah s and I will soon fol low you, and set your mind at ease, as far as it can be done, had I known how much you have been suffering, I would bave done this long before. These are his words, Han nah. O, he may be unfortunate, but not guilty. Hannah and Catharine said little to each other until William came to the cottage. He sat down gravely by the side of his wife, and kindly enquiring for the old woman, at once commenced to tell his sto "The reason of my unhappy exclama tions in my sleep, which have weighed so much upon my mind, dear Catharine, may be very soon told. 1 hey arose from cir cumstances which has embittered my own peace, but which I hope is to be regarded as a sad calamity rather than a crime. When I entered the army, which 1 did at the age of nineteen, the recruiting party to which I attached myself was sent to Scot land, where we remained but a few days, being ordered again to the continent. One unhappy morning, as we were pass ing out of the town where we bad rested on our march southward, my companions and I chanced to see a girl apparently about fifteen years of age, washing - clothes in a tub. Being the most light-hearted, 1 took up a large stone, with the intention ot splashing the water against the girl. She stooped hastily, and shocking to tell, when threw the stone it struck ber on the bead, and she fell to the ground, with, I fear, her skull fractured, stupefied at what 1 bad done, I stood gazing on the stream of blood gushing from my poor victim's head, when my compapions, observing that no one bad seen us, for it was then early in the room ing, hurried me off. We were not pursued, and we were in a few weeks on the conti nent. But the image of the bleeding girl followed me everywhere; and since I have come home, I have never dared to inquire the result, lest 1 should be bung for mur der. For I fear from the dreadful nature of the blow, that the death of that poor creature lies at roy door r While Hutton was relating bis story, he had turned his eyes to the window; but what was his astonishment, as he was con cluding, to hear old Hannah cry aloud, "JLbank God ! while bis wife broke out in? to a hysterical passion of tears and smiles, and threw beself mto his arms. My dear husband," cried she, as soon as her voice found utterance, "that town was Morpeth ?" "It was, said he. "Dear William," the wife cried, "I am that girl!" "You, Catharine!" cried the amazed aud enraptured husband, as he pressed her to his breast. "Yes," said old Hannah, from whose eyes tears were fast dropping, "that girl whom you unfortunately struck, was she who is now the wife of your bosom. But your fears had magnified the blow. Catharine was found by myself soon after the acci dent; and though she lost a little blood, aud was stunned for a lime, she soon rous ed again. Praised be Heaven for bring ing about this blessed explantion P "Amen ! cried Catharine and ber bus- band. Peace and happiness, as much as usually falls to the lot of mortals, were the lot of Catharine and her husband, from this time forward, their great source of disquietude being thus taken away. The wife even loved the husband more, from the discov ery that the circumstances which had caus ed her-distress were but a proof of his ex treme tenderness of heart and conscience; and William was attached the more strong ly to Catharine, after finding ber to be the person whom he unwittingly injured. A new tie, as it were, bad been formed be tween them. Chamber's Journal. Wirt and Corwin. said that Tom Corwin was once trying a case in which he was opposed to the late Mr. Wirt, when the latter tried a somewhat novel mode of . discrediting Corwin's principal witness, on whose ac curacy and discrimination everything turn ed, by showing that he was a person of as- lonisning creauiuv.

Letter from Washington. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 23, 1860. will not weary yon with a Japanese letter. I rue, this city is Japaned all over. It s "Japanese on ev ery lip. Next door to my abode is a 'Ja panese" fan shop. Every breeze blows these unseemly fans with their pictured oddities as they hang all around the door. The grocery at the foot of Fourteenth street has "Japanese punch." The ladies are wearing Japanese dresses. From the time the Japanese first came, to the pres ent, tins street lias been alive with ' and old, male and female, looking in at the Japanese. Ihe Big Panjardrum and his two aids do not appear, except on state occasions. But the artists doctors, men- at-arms, scullions, scribes, and other "fel lers," have their shaved heads out of their windows all the lime. Women hold up their babies to be kissed a la "Japanese." Girls smile on thorn, and in return get confectionary and Japanese -coin ; and pilch up their names and cards. Carnages stop in the street and their inmates look in at the simple Japanese, who enjoy the pa geant. Ou Sunday last, Willard's darkies got out their hose to water the street. All the little urchins, black and white, of the city, were on bend. At every squirt of the "merchine" they whooped and hurrah ed until all Japan looked, and in gleeful amazement enjoyed the Sunday sport. The next day Monday the Japanese went to a Sunday school celebration to see how well behaved the Christian Amer ican youth are. You have already had accounts of the entrance of the .Embassy here, of their strange manners, of their dresses, baggy breeches and shaved heads. You have heard of their reception at the White House and of the precession I hither from Willard's. It beat the sons of Malta. I never belonged to the "Sons," but I have a keen appreciation of some of their hu morous points. I think they may be traced to Japan. When the cortege reach ed the White House, I was on band to see them come in. Each one of the Great Princes had a carriage to himself. His re tainers ran along side. They carried poles with symbols on them, and other emble matic oddities. When the Princes got out of their carnages, the retainers suddenly became weak in the knees. They ducked. If you had hit each of their shaven polls with an instantaneous whcnic-k, tut" couldn't bobbed down with more celerity Out came the Princes. They had on great bead pieces shaped like large shoes, curious ly contrived of black stamped leather and fixed on by ribbons. Their sallow faces wore au unusually solemn appearance. Generally they look quite blithe. They look as innocent as sheep. They are as simple as rabbits. They go popping around Willards, in and out. here and there, with a childish curiosity and elasti city, that is wonderful, considering they have traveled so far aud are so far from ome. I was over nl Willard's the other night, and tried to have "Tommy" show me how it was they twisted down so quick without apparently bending the knees. He went down to show me with a facility that would do justice to a member of Con gress under a sudden call of the "previous question." When they all went down in front of Mr. Buchanan s residence, it was remarked by outsiders, that a christian na- ;cn might learn to practice genuflexions with advantage from such devoted heath ens. Inside of the White House there was a great jam to receive them. Army and Na vy officers were there in full bedizenment. General Scott loomed up like a giant among Lilliputians. Ihe diplomatic people and the Cabinet were also on hand. A hollow square was formed. The Army and Navy were in front; Congressmen and females in the rear. Ladies were in plenty. Er ery elevated point of the East room was filled. I had an embarrassing situation. Mrs. Chanticleer was bound to see. She had to stand on the rounds of a venerable and rickelty chair. An unknown lady asked permission to stand on the top of the back of the chair, lhat called fur a support from my arm. It was delicately painful; and as she was good looking and Mrs. Chanticleer very near by; and as the crowd swayed tne latter ladv was com pelled to cling for support to the nearest gentleman I perspired freely. Directly the folding doors opened and I saw the lofty head pieces of the Embassy. They approached the President and Cabinet. I saw a perceptible timidity as tbey passed (J Id Uerro Gordo! ihey went through the forms of the opening and presentation of the treaty ; tbey bowed, and talked, and their talk was translated ; and then amid buzz and flutter and noise and crowds of soldiers and people, thev went back to Willards; with a rush of enthusiasm and brazen clang of music! It was a great old piece of comedy. Still it has its uses suppose. I rather like these people.

Before I go to bed at midnieht. see them by the gas light, through their windows, shaving each other's heads.trreas- ing their black hair, and twisting that hard, black, ropy, stubby horn of hair on the top of the cranium. That's a curious looking concern, that stubby horn ! It is turned at right angles, through a rinar. and sticks out in f.ont like a round plug of to bacco. Their Tartar faces, with high cheek bones, and almond shaped eyes, black and bearded with their expansive trowserloons and loose Turkish jackets and curious little swords, make up a tout tn- temble that is at once Oriental and comi cal. I cannot make any belter picture of them than this. Thev will not hold still. Thev are always on the go. They will learn all that is about thorn. Vices too. They al ready take down a braudy smash, or a glass of Milium, with a relish. They smoke rather awkwardly.

The Sumter (S. C.) Watchman fextnrt contains the sad particulars of the drown ing of twenty-seven persons, mostly fe males, while on a picnic and fishing party, nine runes ironi uamaen, is. u. xt ap pears that the early part of the day was spent, by a large company in unalloyed enjoyment, but in the afternoon about thir ty ladies, with a few gentlemen, embarked on a large flat-boat for the purpose of pass ing around a large pond. In this manner they enjoyed themselves for some time, and until the boat, while in the middle of the pond, unfortunately struck a snag, held fast and began to leak. The Watchman describes the scene that then ensued as follows: "The wildest excitement and fear seem ed to seize every heart, and but few if any were sufficiently collected to enable them to employ their efforts for rescue advantage ously. In a few moments now, she sank, when the scene may be better imagined than described. Piercing cries and shrieks, and calls for help, both from those on shore, and those on the unfortunate boat filled the air. Sisters and brothers, parents and children, relatives and friends, whose hearts were bound together by the nearest and dearest ties, and animated by the warmest and most tender anection, were there some ou the sinking boat and some shore. "The boat seems to have committed them to the bosom of the water, huddled together, mainly, in a mass. The water is supposed to have been about twenty feel in depth. Thus thown together, one clinging to the other, with that grasp which belongs only to those in a drowning condition, there was little opportunity for the males in the company to rescue the ladies, or even to save themselves. snorts to rescue the bodies of tbe un fortunate drowned were immediately em ployed. Some were taken from the water, others could not be found. "Mr. S. S. Richburg lost his life in en deavoring to save the lives of the females. On Sunday tbe bodies of eight of the fe males were cmveyed to tbe Methodist lipis- copal (Jhtircb at feumter, where their fd nerals took place, in the presence of a large congregation.

Tbe Colo "went in" to a little game cf poker, (now we're certain,) and "went through," and soon crept on to bed.

Goddard, whose ar rest in Boston on a requisition from Gov. Morgan we bare already noticed : Miss G's career is a somewhat remarkable one. Possessed of fine intellectual- characteris tics, she became an authoress of some ce lebrity, contributing to several magazines and newspapers, and publishing two or three volumes herself, among which were the "Trojan Sketch Book" and "Glean ings." She was also at one time a large contributor to the local press of this city, over the signature of Kate. She kept a female seminary in this city, and was highly successful as a teacher, having at one time several assistants, and hosts ef friends. But "Kate" got into speculations, bought brick houses, kept a bank account, got notes discounted, got "short," borrowed. shinned and financierered, ,and eventually passed through the stages of the bold and dashing operator, "from grave to gay, from lively to severe." Many staid and respectable citizens endorsed her paper, or loaned their names for thousands, but the pay day, more certain then "death or tax es," at length came, and with it ruin for tbe mtellecual and brilliant "Kate. It u avered that in her career here she ont only swindled but forged. How this may be we cannot tell, but certain it is that she has now been arrested and brought to this city, for changing the amount of a note for $150 to $1,500, which was given by a Mr. Wetmore, which note was discounted by one of our city banks, "Kate" obtaining the mcney upon iu Some months since Miss Goddard was np before the Boston Courts on a criminal charge (obtaining money under false pretenses, we believe,) id through tbe fiery ordeal of lanes and courts in that city. Her trial excited considerable attention here, especially among those who acknowledged themselves as her victims. She is now in jail in this city, and it is quite likely her trial will en gross a large degree of public interest. A Convict Shot in the Maryland Penitentiary. A convict named Wm. Leech was shot in the Maryland penitentiary at Baltimore, Monday. He had been confined with a ball and chain for refractory conduct, and when ordered from his cell to go to work, would not obey ; but attacked the officers with the ball, when two shots were fired at him, one inflicting a mortal wonnd. Leech was a hardened villain. At the age of 14 was convicted for arson and sentenced for 14 years in the Cherry Hill Pa, Pris on. After serving his sentence he spent years in Sing Sing for robbery.. He went to New Orleans, committed a mur der, and was sentenced to be hung, after wards commuted to sentence for life in v Penitentiary. He was pardoned ia 4 years by the Governor, when he went to Balti more, married, became jealous, and stabbed his wife This was the crime for which he was imprisoned at Baltimore when he was shot. His wife recovered. For a time af ter entering the prison he behaved himself tolerably well, but about a year ago feigned insanity and refused to work. He was then taken up and punished, after which he told tbe warden he would kill him, as he feared neither God, man nor deviL He subse quently drew a knife and threatenec? tbe ' life of the Warden, and oh one occasion when his wife called to see him, while standing at tbe gate, in the presence of an officer tried to induce her to shake hands with him.
