We have frequently noticed that the staitk'St oll maids have- the most liberal notions of kissing. Frederika Bremer, with a simplicity and geniality emi nently Christian, has ever a gentle I word for the impulsive lover, if his I heart is honest. We find this little story in her Inst book: In the University of Upsala, in lived a young student—a lonely youth, wi a great love for studies, but without means for pursu ing them, lie was poor without con nections. Still he studied, living in great poverty, but keeping a cheerful heart and trying not to look at thestudiedJ.00 future which looked so grimly at him. His good humor and good qualities made him beloved by his young com rades. Once he was standing with some of them in the great square of Upsala, prating away an hour of leis ure, when the attention of the young men became arrested by a very young and elegant lady, who at the side of an elderly one, walked slowly over the place* It was the daughter of the Governor of Upland, living in the city, and the lady with her was her govern ess. She was generally known for her beauty and for her goodness and gen tleness of character and was looked upon with great admiration by thehad students. As the young men now stood silently looking, gazing at her,the as she passed on like a graceful vision, one of them exclaimed:—Well, it would be worth something to have a kiss from such a mouth!' The poor young student, the hero of our story, who was looking intently on that pure and angelc face, exclaimed, as if bythe inspiration, 'Well, I think I could have it.' 'What!' cried his friends in chorus, 'are you crazy Do you know her fcc. 'Not at all,1 he answered but I think she woul 1 kiss me, just now, if I asked her.* 'What, in this place, be fore all our eyes 'In this place, be youreyes.' 'Freely?7 'Freely.' Well, if she will give you a kiss in that man ner, I will give you a thousand dollars!' exclaimed one of the parly. 'And TH E RE WIN SENTINEL •Minnesota Forever! RED WING, GOODHUE COUNTY, MINN., SATURDAY. JULY 1859. conversation was so pleased with him, that he offered him to dine at his table during his studies at Upsala. "Our young student now pursued his studies in a manner which soon made him regarded as the most prom ising scholar at the university. Three years were now passed after the day of the first kiss, when the young man was allowed to give a second one to theclares lovely daughter of the Governor as to his .intended bride. "He became, later, one of the great est scholars hi Sweden, and much res pected for his character. His works will endure forever among ..the works of science, and from his h~py union sprung a faintly well known in Sweden in the present day, and whose wealth of fortune and high position in society are regarded as small things, compared with thewealth of goodness and love." W O PICTURES Mrs. Swishelm, of the St. Cloud Democrat, and J. A. Wheelock, who writes silly "stuff" to the Pioneer and Democrat, have been amusing them selves in drawing pen and ink sketches of each other. Mrs. Swishelm is thus sketched by Wheelock, in a letter to the Pioneer from Saint Cloud:— "Among other objects of use andwas ornament, in this city, is the famous Mrs. Swishelm, whon I did myself the honor to call and see, and who, by the' way, proved to be a very agreeable, chatty person, not at all demoniac or elfish in her general appearance—a woman of small stature, with a brow of really line contour in the wide arch and Grecian sweep of the perceptive and ideal organs with large, unsteady, rebellious eyes too, that look as if they could flash, whether they could melt or not and with lips to back the eye's assertion—a piquant, spicy little body, done up, for the nonce, in an affecta tion of Quaker hideousuess of costume, just such a little woiriar-, for all thehead world, as it refreshes one's soul to quarreW with." Here is what Mrs. S. says, in the last number of her paper:— "Mr. Wheelock, our one persevering enemy, in the editorial corps of Min nesota is with the party, (Col. Nobles.) and intends going to Rod lliver. He is in search of health, laboring with a bad bronchial disease. He is a gentle pleasant looking man with remarkably fine eyes and a head which bespeaks an undue development of the mental powers. We should judge he had hard when a child and that extreme nervous sensibility cre ates his tendency to sarcasm." We shall expect a further description of "Joe" when Mrs.«Swishelm*s "rebel lious eyes" light upon the first para graph. From the New York Mercury, June 13. E NE W JERSI' I I E I E S E I TIME E N E I!'as And I!' cried three or four others, for it so happened that several rich young men were in the groop, and bets ran high on so improbable an event, and the challenge was made and received in less time than we take to relate it. "Our hero—my authority tells us not whether he was handsome or plain —I haveraypeculiar reacons for be lieveing that lie was rather plain, but singularly goodlooking—our hero walk ed to meet the young lady. He bow ed to her and said, 'My lady, my for tune is in your hand.1 She looked at him in astonishment, but arrested her steps. "He proceeded to state his name and condition, his aspirations, and related truly and simply what had just passed between him and his companions.— The young lady listened atentively, and when he had ceased to speak, she said blushing, but with great sweet ness 'If by so little a thing so much can be effected, it would be foolish in me to refuse your request,' and she kissed the young man publicly in the open square. "Next day the young student was aent for by the Governor. He wanted to see the young man who dared to ask a kiss of his daughter in that way and whom she had consented to kiss so. He received him with a severe and senrtiniring Brow, but after an hour's Yesterday was the utmost limit fixed by the Second Adventists of this city for the continuance of all earthly things. At the meeting of these delu ded people at Union Hall in the morn ing, one of the speakers said that it been announced in the newspa pers that if this day did not witness end of the world, they would give up their belief, and cease to hold their meetings. This was an error. They intended nothing of the kind. If the world did not come to an end now, and he doubted somewhat that it would, it would come "sometime," and meetings would be continued to the end, that they might all be pre pared when the long expected event should take place. He counseled his hearers to be in no wise cast down, but to hold up iheir heads, and to look the world square in the eyes. He firmly believed that according to thePhysicians Scriptures, time was up." He had no prophetic vision, and there might be some error in the calculation, butYesterday far as he could see, it was high time for the consummation of all things in gener J, and every thing in particular. The speaker said that probably the next steamer from Europe will bring some intelligence favorable to their views, and enlightened them upon some points which were heretofore ve ry dubious. The speaker compared the present position of those who were "rooted and grounded" in the peculiar belief of the Second Adventists to the condi tion of the children of Israel, on coin ing, in their journeyings, to the Red Sea. There appears to be no avenue of escape, but God opened a way forFrank them, and he would now relieve them from their present condition of doubt and uncertainty, through some puch miraculous agency. Much of this kind of argument was used, but it appa rently afforded the leading disciples present but little satisfaction, and they appeared as though they would have much rather experienced the crisis at this time. Hope deferred mnketh the heart sick," was literally true in their case. The majority, 'however, seemed to find great satisfaction iu the fact that the "end was not yet," andconsecutive were perfectly willing to "wait a little longer." ROSSINI A N E W A QUESTION. The Paris correspondent of the Na tional Intelligencer relates the xollow ing anecdote about Rossini: Appropos of popular sentiment in the Romagna, you may not quarrel, perhaps( with an anecdote about Ros sini, a native of this part of the Papal territory. The veteran maestro de that his fellow countrymen are unchanged at heart since the gay days of his youth, when he was happy to play a good trick upon an Austrian general. The adventure, related by himself a few evenings ago at his house in Paris, is given to you second-hand, but yon may rest quite assured of there being no betrayal of confidence. The conversation had turned upon the war, and, as usual, many an eld battle was fought over again. Rossini's achieve ment was bloodless, but none the less victorious. The Austrians, soon after the fatal attempt of Murat, in 1815, oc cupied Bologna. Rossini had emigra ted thither from his native village of Pesaro, in the adjoining legation, and had been at work in his new abode upon the "Barber of Seville." Some time before the arrival of the Austri ans he had won the people's heart by a superb national song. The author wise enough in his generation to know that, agreeable as he was to hisrative fellow-countrymen in consequence of this performance, it was the circum stance*of all others to render him ob-from noxious to their "protectors" from the other side of the Po. He was con vinced, therefore, of the necessity toplace leave the country. But to do this was now impossible without an Austrian passport, which at the moment, in Rossini's predicament, could only be hoped for through some lucky strata gem. The author of Largo al facto tum can have felt no great want of self reliance in such proceedings. He presented himself, therefore, at thedischarged quarters of the Austrian com mander, and made his request. The officer looked at him askant "Your name and calling?" he asked. "My name," replied Rossini, "is Ioacchino, aud I ama composer of music not, however," he added, "like that mad fellow Rossini, who writes revolution ary songs. My/orte i9 military music aud by the way, your excellency, I have taken the liberty to compose a march in honor of the new garrison, which I humbly solicit may be honored by your excellency's band." So saying, he took a manuscript from his pocket, and opening it at a piano which stood by, played an in spiring martial air, not, however, from "Py™""^ before this tribunal on thn m«».,c/».. T».e«commander the manuscript. Th wasI enchanted. He summoned the band master, and handing him the music, ordered the march for the next day's review: The composer had been dis missed, meanwhile, with passport and remuneration. The supposed new march was to be performed the fol lowing evening upon the public square. Certain well known and spirit-stirring notes seemed to electrify the people. A mighty chorus resounded as with one accord throughout the city, and to the inexpressible confusion of the com mander, his own garrison band was upholding a thousand revolutionary voices in the Bolognee of Rossini.— "Luckily for my shoulders added the veteran composer, with a sly grimace, "I was by that time half way to Genoa." A FEOG IX THE STOMACH THRICE YEARS.~A son of Mr. Charles Davis, residing in Gould's Court,leading from Montgomery, near Light street, has caused the family great uneasiness for three years past in consequence of his being subject at times, for hours to gether, to spasms and terrible fits.— were consulted, but all their investigations failed to reveal the causes that produced the malady. afternoon, about 3 o'clock, when entering the house, the lad was seized with symptoms of his malady, and, in a fit of wretching, threw up upon the floor alive frog, about two inches in length. The frog hopped gaily about the floor, until secured by tlie family. Instant relief was experi enced by the lad. His name is Wm. Davis, and he is about ten years of age. He has no recollection of theelection time the frog was taken into his stom ach, but his father thinks it was swal lowed with his drink about three years ago, when he was first afflicted with fits.—Baltimore Sun, \0th. 2 The Janesville Times says Parker, formerly of Milwaukee, whose friends lately published a chal lenge to any person in the State, made a run" of five thousand one hundred and seventy points on Saturday, June 5th, on the Hyatt House tables. It was made while playing an ordinary full game, and the' first twenty-one points were made round the table," after which the two red balls and the cue ball being about eighteen inches from the cushion, he played them so skillfully and carefully as to make one thousand seven hundred and sixteen caroms,raaking in all 5,170 points! This is said to be the largest run which has ever been accomplished by iiuy player.

GARIBALDI' S W I E Some of the most interesting passa ges in Garibaldi's life relate to his wife. He married a lady of extraordinary qualities, a native of one of the States of South America. She was trained to horsemanship and the most athletic habits prevail among the females of those countries. Though like him, no ble-hearted, affectionate and disinte rested, she also possesses a similar de gree of personal courage and fortitude which have seldom been displayed, and still more rarely depicted by anydo authentic pen. After her marriage she accompanied him in his battles by sea and land and although usually un armed and keeping at his side only as his companion, she sometimes aided in his most desperate conflicts, by deal ing out powder, loading guns, and even firing them at the enemy. The suffer ings which she endured among the mountains in times of adversity and seasons of tempests, were severe and almost incredible. The short account of her escape from a Brazilian guard after capture in an 'engagement, and her journey of several days and nights on horseback, and alone through wild forests, swimming swollen torrents by holding to the mane or the tail other horse, is exceeded only by the sad nar of her death "in 1849 on theindividual banks of the Po, when, after resolutely accompanying Garibaldi on his retreat Rome, she landed with him in one of the boats in which he was seek ing to reach Venice, then the only in Italy which held out against the enemy.—N. V. Courier and En-promises quirer. NORLY SAID In the case cf the convicted and sentenced Oberlin slave rescuers, whom the Abolitionists hoped to have from imprisonment, by thethe Supreme Court of Ohio, on habeas cor pus, Judge Swan thus nobly concludes the opinion of the Court: As a citizen I would not deliberate ly violate the constitution or law bysubject interference with fugitives from jus tice. But if a weary, frightened slave would appeal to me to protect him from his pursuers, it is possible I might mo mentarily forget my allegiance to thethe law and constitution and give him a covert from those who were on hisviving track—there are, no doubl, many slaveholders who would thus follow the instincts of sympathy. And if I did it, and was prosecuted, condemn ed and imprisoned, and brought by 1.. ~~A' habeas corpus, and was then permittedterations, to pronounce judgment in my ownwill case, I trust I should have the moral courage to say before God and the country, as I am now compelled to say, under the solemn duties of a judge,OF bound by official oath to sustain the supremacy of the constitution and the law: The prisoners must be remand ed." Judge Swan was elected by the Re publican party, and a few days after he delivered the above sentiments his party met in State convention to nom inate a Judge of theSupreme Court, and selected another man to take his place. SI l» £3F* TJF° Scotch gentlemen went to Ireland to make a tour and to see the natives. One of them one drizzly day bet the other the price of their dinner and a bottle of wine that the first Pat they found would be too ranch for thern.^ A diminutive fellow, with an old frieze coat, and a piece of a hat,merchant was trying to plough with a pony un der the shelter of a row of trees." "Pat," said our friend. "Yes, yer honor," he replied. "If the devil were to come just now. which one of us would he take "Sure he'd take me, yer honor!" "But why, Pat?" "Cause he'd be sure of yer honor at any time." DEATHS FROM JOY.—The English papers report the death of Mrs. Young, a lady of high social position, who died under the excitement produced by re ceiving the joyful intelligence of thethe of her nephew to the Honse ot Commons. The wife of a sea-captain in Eng land lately died from Joy, in conse quence of the return of her husband after an absence of-seven vears. A RARE SHOT.—On the 6th nit., Dr. Irwin, United States' army, of Fort Buchanan, killed two antelopes at a single shot with a Colt's carbine, the distance being over three hundred yards. The ball passed throngh the heart of one animal and the liver of the other. A case of this sort is very rare in the annals of sporting. I a I PLIUIXXINA.—Lai'.y—"Resign your situation!

A DisAfPoiNTBD DARKEY.—An old darkey Whom Captain Jim Francis knows very Well} Went out one day td catch cat-fish. After taking two or three small fry, he hooked a fine pike. Some gentlemen who were fishing near him, were about to offer their congratulations at his success. Before they could do so, however, the darkey had detached the quivering beauty from his hook, and flung hfifl again" into the water. Why,'what under the situ did yoU that for?" he was asked. Why, marser," was the reply, come a cattin', an' when I goea a cat tin', I wants catfish and not pike." A VTRONG POSITION. The Lynchburg Republican, on: of the ablest and the most influential ot the Virginia Democratic journals, an nounces its position as follows: We are gratified to observe that our position in favor of non-intervention with slavery in the Territories is likely to be sustained by the unanimous dem ocratic sentiment of the country. In* tervention has but few advocates, and they cannot long hold out against the almost unbroken opinions of the Na tional Democracy. A few extreme men in the South, tenacious of their opinions, may continue to cling to their peculiar and extreme views upon this subject, but the whole question will receive a quietus in the Charleston convention. The National Democracy will again plant itself upon the Cincinnati platform and the com of our country, without the emasculation or addition of any plank. The Richmond Enquirer, which is supposed to represent the views of Senator Hunter, is equally emphatic with its Lynchbuagh contemporary in defining its position: Were we to insist upon forcing upon Democratic party the doctrines of the duty and power of intervention by Congress for protection of slave prop' crty in the Territories, we should abandon the old practice of our party, ourselves to the mortification of defeat in the democratic convention, and, if successful, drive off the masses of the North, paralyze our party in the free states, ana yield the Presidency to black republicans and all this we would encounter for the purpose of re an issue which has been prac tically adjudicated, and which has ceased to be a living and practical question. All signs indicate tfiat the Charles ton convention will reaffirm the Cin cinnati platform without essential al and that the Democracy go into the Presidential contest still pledged to "NON-INTRRFKRBJTCB BY CONGRESS WITH SLAVERY IN STATE AND TERRITORY OR IN THE DISTRICT COLUMBIA." TONNAGE OF THE WORLD.—An English paper says: At present it may interest our read ers to know the extent of the merchant marine, from which may be estimated the real maritime power. The ton nage of the world is about fifteen mil lions, the United States being first, United Kingdom second, France third and British colonies fourth but if we take Great Britain and her colonies together they amount to a trifle over that of the Great Republic. This is a sad change from that of 1813, when all the European ports were blockaded by us, not an enemy's ship appearing on the ocean, except those of our cousins, with whom, as well as the great Na poleon, we were then at war. Our marine far exceeded the rest of the world. Now we only stand as one to three! When Parliamcat meets British shipping should in all respects be placed on an equality with foreign by reciprocity.
