Before you bow to a lady in the street, per mit her to decide whether you may do so or not, by at least a look of recognition. '■Excuse my gloves," is an unnecessary apology, for the gloves should not be with drawn to shake hands. When your companion bows to a lady, you should do so also. When a gentleman bows to a lady In your company, always bow to him in return. A letter must be answered, unless you wish to intimate to the writer that lie or his subject are beneath your notice. A visit must be returned in like manner, even though no intimacy is intended. A smiling countenance is pleasant, but ex cess of laughter should be avoided, especially when it is possible for any one to suppose himself derided by it. Whisperingin company is always offensive, and often for the reason that persons present suspect that they are the object of it. ------- m .< ►. — — UnCorgoHcn Infamy. The Paris Rappel relates that the famous Hungarian General Ueorgey (who in 1849 gave the death-blow to the hopes of Hungary in surrendering witli 40,000 men to a Russian force of much inferior numbers) was recently recognized by the populace while passing through the city of Torda, in Lower Hun gary. Immediately a crowd assembled, cry ing out, "Down with the traitor! Down with the coward ! " Georgey was compelled to seek refuge in a barracks among some sol diers, where he remained until nightfall, and then made his escape in disguise. This is the first time since 1849 that he has shown himself in that part of the country which he had betrayed. —----- ma •< — ----- Charles Prancis Adams.— The Cincinnati Commercial, one of the most prominent in dependent journals of the West, says: Grant cannot be beaten save by a cundidate to whose character there is found an unqualified as surance of devotion to the public safety . 4 ., , * , » liu?.

A candidate against Grant must not be erratic or sentationnl, radical or aggressive ; or, if he is, he must miserably fall. It seems to us that Charles Francis Adams Is the man whose name is a platform ; whose character gives guarantees that the republic would t offer no determent if he were chosen chief magistrate; and that the essential thing is to present him to the people with the slightest possible in cumbrance in the way of platform literature. ■--- in* « 1 — I »I -- MaSSACHTSETTS AND THE TF.LEORAI>n.— The New York Mail, in its notice of Professor Morse, says ; It is a singular fact that Mas sachusetts can claim as her sons the three men who have done the most to " harness the lightning," and make it the servant of man kind. Of course we mean Franklin, Morse and Field. What other triumvirate will be so long honored by mankind or associated with such boundless additions to the sum of human happiness, and with such contribu ions to the subjugation of the earth to hu man uses? Oana'i Doom. From the Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch, May 5. One of the most notorious and persistent newseaper libelers in the land has come to sudden but merited grief. We refer, of course, to "Cesspool" Dana, of the New York Sun, whose office it has been, and is, to slander every one who is not in accord with his venal purposes. In connection with the Evans case, Dana naturally assailed ex-State Treasurer Kemble, and, of course, unjustly held him up to public ridicule and contempt. For this offense he was arrested and held for trial. Fixing his own time—for the case was not a persecution but a prosecution to subserve the ends of public as well as private justice— Dana, yesterday, on being called for trial, forfeited his bail and fled, like a board-yard cur, from deserved punishment. The pro ceedings in the case are elsewhere detailed in full, and we direct attention to the report of the same, with regret only, that his insolent lawyer was not committed to the cell that Dana ought to occupy. When the culprit in this case was arrested, a month ago, we stated our opinion of Dana in explicit terms. Since then he was indicted by our grand jury. By courtesy he has had a sufficiency of the law's delay, and yesterday, on his promise that no further postponement would be expected on his part, was set for his trial. During the week, General McCandless, his attorney, was busy to prevent his trial by a juiy, and, not succeeding, on Friday, Dana himself took charge of the machine, endeav oring to persuade Messrs. Mann and Cassidy, who represent the prosecution, to let him off. Acting strictly in accord with the views of their client, Dana was informed that the case must be tried, whereupon his New York Tombs lawyer associated with him, Wra. L. Hirst, Esq., who, fully cognizant of all the facts in the case, yesterday appeared for him. But Dana was not there, and Bartlett, his Tombs lawer, believing himself to be in the polluted purlieus of Gotham, sought to serve bis client by abusing the grand jury, the pros ecution and the sitting judge, much as Dana abuses everybody who is not in strict accord with him. Judge Allison, with the courtesy toward strangers that is proverbial in our courts, instead of sending Bartlett to prison for contempt, simply seated him, and thus insolece as well as impudence was simply re buked. Meanwhile Dana's bail ($5,000) was forfeited, the culprit being a frightened fugi tive from justice, and, more than that, a re creant to his bondsman, who kept him from the corridors of our county prison. Now one thing is certain, Dana will hence forth never dare to set his foot on Pennsylva nia soil. False to the friends who served and saved him, and bailed him and kept him out of jail ; a lying libeler, who has no defence save that which depend* noon persistence in wrong ; a coward who skulks from the results of the injuries he has unjustly inflicted on others; a whelp without a history and a hound without honor—we are glad to know that Philadelphia will hereafter be free from his pestilential presence, though we had hoped that Messrs. Mann and Cassidy would, as they should, have consigned him to the confines of Moyamensing orison. Had Dana been a just man he would have vindicated the gen tleman he assailed. Being a blackguard, he is only fitted for a jail, and there we hope to find him. Bead Etiquette. Perhaps there is good reason in despising some of the rules of etiquette imposed by fashionable society. If a man wishes to eat his mashed potatoes with his knife, or prefers to pour his hot coffee into a saucer rather than bum his throat, we are willing he should have his liberty. But there are some things that no man has a right to do, and that no well-bred man will wish to do. No man will wish to put his fork into another man's plate, or drink from another person's cup. If two men sleep in the same bed, and one of them crowds the other to the wall, lie is called a hog. 1 Now, there are certain rules of good breed ing that apply to the road as well as the table or the fireside. We are not talking now about any laws In regard to the road other than the laws of common sense and good breeding. When two teams meet, good breeding requires that each give half the road. Yet we often meet teamsters who re fuse to obey this simple rule, because they have the advantage at the time. A man with a heavy lumber wagon has no more right to crowd a light carriage into the ruts or bushes than a burly lubber would have to force his weaker bed-fellow to sleep on the mil. If some peculiarity in bis load requires him to keep the track, he can stop his team, and politely ask for it, and thank the other for giving* it. When one teamster wishes to pass another on a dusty road, he should ask the privilege of doing so, especially if there is a lady in the forward wagon. When the forward team finds that his own team travels slower than ituua mai ui« unu tiaui uavcis »itMU.1 uiiui ! ** le °th er » he should hold his horses to their slowest pace till the other passes. Aman has no more right, under these circumstances, to whip up his slow team just enough to keep the other in the rear, than he has to build a fence across the road, or do any other ill mannered, vulgar thing. We think a little attention on the part of teamsters to the simple rules of good breed ing, will do as much to prevent accidents and secure comfort and good feeling on the road as any set of laws that cou ld be enacted. A novel document, originating in the New York Stock Exchange, is in circulation, ad dressed to "sensibly practicable temperance B le," and is in the form of the following çe: * "We, the undersigned, deprecating the growing evil of intemperance, and believing that it is in great degree induced by a mistaken idea of sociability and politeness, therefore, with a view of mitigating this evil in a prac tical way, we hereby pledge ourselved to pay only for the liquor which we ourselves drink, and to abstain from drinking any liquors which others pay for." a LEAP-YEAR ROMANCE. A Wealthy Widow Captures a Young New Yorker, From the New York Sun; April 18. A romantic marriage was solemnized in St. Paul's Church, in East One Hundred and Seventeenth street, last night, the couple being Mr. Thomas Fagan and Mrs. J. Read. It was the climax of a case of love at first sight, and the raising of a poor young man to affluence. Mr. Thomas Fagan is the son of the late Jas. P. Fagan, who was Superintendent of Ward's Island. Young Fagan led a lively and fast life prior to his father's death, and thus naturally incurred the old gentleman's displeasure. He was cut off with a shilling. Thomas then sensibly went to work to earn an honest living. Being young, of prepos sessing address, he soon obtained employ ment with Patrick Martin, a house-painter in Harlem. About this time he was sent by his employer to brighten up the interior of the lonely dwelling of the buxum widow of the late Joseph Read, a gentleman who had acquired a large fortune in Washington market. The widow was decidedly taken with young Eagan on his first appearance in the house, and and watched his woTk with an apparently deep interest. In fact she followed him from room to room, scarcely leaving him alone for a minute. This made Thomas a little nervous and being rather sensitive he imagined thfc widow suspected him of dishonesty. The longer Thomas remained in the widow's domicile the closer she watched him. Finally ft made him so uncomfortable that he resolved to stand it no longer. He informed his employer of this state of affairs, and another man was sent in his place-. This did not suit the widow, and when the new painter made his appearance she bade him retnrn to the shop . and send Fagan to do the work, saying that she wanted him and none other to work for her. Fagan was accordingly sent to finish the job. While Fagan was busily at work Mrs. Reed stepped up to him and asked him whether he was married. On being answered in the negative, she said : "Then I am going to take advan tage of Leap Year and make you a proposi tion of marriage." "But, my dear madam," said the young man, blushing to the roots of his hair, " you surely must be joking ; we are strangers, and I am sure you do not mean what you say." "If you think that I am joking and do not mean what F say, just put on your coat and go with me to my lawyer's and I will make over to you $50,000 worth of property," said the bouncing widow. Young Fagan, convinced by her manner that she was in earnest, straightway accom panied lier to the lawyer, and a deed was drawn up giving Fagan $50,000 worth of property, which be was to become possessed of on the day of the marriage. Fagan, after the engagement had been made, gave up his Work. He can be seen daily riding through the city behind a fast horse, which draws a stylish turnout, and he is one of the best dressed men to be seen on the 6 treet. When ever he meets any of his old chums he hails him and says, "Well, boys, this is better than painting, eh?" Can a Woman Keep a Secret I From the Nineteenth Century. Men say women can't keep a secret. It is just the reverse; women can, men amt. Women carry with them to their graves secrets that would kill any man. Woman never tells; man always does.* The woman suffers nnd dies ; man blabs and lives. Man cannot keep a secret; woman cannot make it known. What is spoil to the man is death to the wo man. Adam was a sneak. Eve would have kept the apple a secret. Who ever heard a woman talk about her love fiascos? Every l«Hly has heard a man gossip. Man delights in telling of bis illicit conquests; woman would cut her tohgue out first. Men are «»arse in their club room talk ; women arc re fined in their parlor conversation. Who ever heard of a woman telling of her lovers? Who lias not listened to the dissipation of the men ? Men boast, women don't. Women never tell tales out of school; men are always babbling. 80 down with another old adage. Woman can keep a secret, nnd her ability to do so is proved by the conduct of a St. John's (New Foundland) gfirl, who did not tell her lover she was worth $4,000,000 in her own right until after marriage. Ax Amiable Wife.— Jackson W. Frank lin, of St. Louis, lias sued for a divorce from his wife. He states that they were married in Bedford County, Virginia. February 4th, 1849, and lived together until April 1, 1872. That she treated him in such a manner as to render his condition intolerable; used obscene and abusive language to him, telling him that "if bell was raked his match could not be found;" that he was misery in her sight, and she wished lie would take his clothes and be gone. He further says she endangered his life by making an assault upon him at the breakfast table, striking him on the head with a iarge stick «if wood; she also struck him on the hand and lacerated the tlesh; also stabbing him three times witli a butcher knife. All this without any provocation on his part, except that he refused to vote as she desired. On the 10th of March, 1872, she cut him on the hand with a large knife. That on the first of April, while attending a funeral, she came to him in the presence of the dead body and the people assembled, and seized him by the throat, striking and beating him with her fi it. He made no resistance, and did not try to prevent her striking and beating bine He says he lias submitted to her treatment as Ion as it was possible for a human being to stan abuse and ill-treatment, and only consented to commence this action when he became sat isfied his life was not safe in company of de fendant Henry Winter Dart*' Ora ter). Correspondence of the Boston Globe. It will be remembered that a Maryland Representative, Harris, uttered words in eulogy of Jeff. Davis and the Confederacy, which showed a condition of mental treason at least. A motion for expulsion was offered, wild excitement followed, Mr. Colfax left the chair in order to sustain it, and did so in a speech of marked and impetuous power. By the way, Mr. Colfax is known to reportorial memories as the most rapid speaker of his time. Beck, of Kentucky, is their present bete noire in this respect. The motion to expel failed to obtain, by a few, the necessary two-thirds vote. Then came one to censure. On this, debate proceeded for nearly a week. The whole subject of free speech, and whether it bad or not any limitations, passed under review With the progress of the de bate mens' minds became confused. At last one day, just as the morning hour expired. Henry Winter Davis came In. Taking his seat, In a few moments his clear, firm "Mr. Speaker" thrilled though the House, and at once hushed oil the turbulent ham. As de scribed to me by a master of the picturesque, who both heard and participated, the scene that followed must have been a striking one. A few swift sentences stated the various po sitions assumed by preceding speakers. In a clear and striking manner he arraigned and summed them up, and then proceeded to an alyze the offense of which Mr. Harris had been guilty, showing how freedom and license diverged, and that disloyal utterances like his were as treasonable in their degree as the act of war, the raising of rebellion, and the marshalling of armies. As the orator proceeded the House gathered about, in front and all around him. The Senate Chamber was emptied; the galleries above were dark with the throngs that lennded down with breathless attention. There was no sound heard but the music of the speaker's voice, for the hushed breath of the great audience seemed silence before those tones. His col league, the one whose offense was under con sideration, a Southerner even to Quixotism, stood close to the orator, nay, almost in front of him, leaning on some friendly shoulder, while his face became a wrapt study, show ing evident unconsciousness of how much he had to do with the occasion, in the intellec tual delight the display gave him. At the most caustic part of Davis' argument when everybody was listening with an in tenseness almost painful, Harris was heard hy the orator and those about him to say in excited tones, almost audible to the galleries, ! "By G—! old Maryland is ahead yet!" Could - - — - State pride go further ? There is' no one now in the House able to so electrify a friend, let alone an antagonist. A mystery Solved. About once in four or five years the ques tion, "Was Morgan murdered by the Free masons ?" comes up in the newspapers and is discussed with as much fervor as if the transaction it refers to wusja matter of yes terday. It will sadden those who delight in mystery to know, on so good authority as that of Morgan's son, that the supposed vic tim of the mystic tie was neither tied to a stone and sunk, had his throat cut, nor was torn asunder, according to the general custom in such cases. On the contrary he lived until nearly thirty years after his abduction, and finally ended his days in corpulence and con tentment at Hobardtown, Van Dieman's Land where he for some years published a news paper, the Advertiser, which is still in exis tence. According to the statement of the son referred to, Morgan was released on condition of his leaving the country forever. He was accompanied to Qnebeck, where he entered the British navy, and was placed on a ship which left soon after for England. Later he accompanied a government vessel to Australia, and his period of service being ended, lie chose to take up Lis residence in that quarter of the world.

If the saying is true that " he who causes two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before is a public benefactor," how much more is be who discovers a remedy for one of the most distressing diseases that poor human nature is heir to? Having been afflicted for many years with neuralgic head- ache, and after trying all the remedies I could hear of without any benefit, I had given up all hopes of a cure, having bad an elder brother die of the disease, and being told by the doctors there was no cure for it. I hap- pily thought of trying salt, and m a short time was delighted to see it had the best re- sults. It is now about two months since I tried the experiment, and I have not been troubled with it since. Now I want to let " tlie whole world and the rest of mankind " know the remedy, and it is so simple any one can use it. Take a pinch cf salt, and snuff it up your nostrils until you can taste the salt in your throat. Do not blow your nose for a considerable time, but, as the water runs, snuff It up until you can spit it out of your moutli. In changeable weather, or if you feel any returns of it, repeat the remedy. ----— » « * •• •—--- Pickled Egos. —At tlie season of the year when the stock of eggs is plentiful, cause some four or six dozen to be boiled in a ca pacious saucepan until they become quite hard.
