One of the most interest ing of these cases occurred in Paris in 1776. In that year a young girl of very prepossessing appearance from one of the interior provinces of France, was placed in the service of a man de-plays praved by all the vices of that mctrop olis. Smitten by her charms he attempted her ruin, but was unsuccess ful. Incensed at his defeat, he deter mined oil revenge, and in furtherance of his design, secretly placed in her trunk articles belonging to him and marked with his name. He then de nounced her to a magistrate who caused her to be arrested, and the missing articles being found in her possesssion, she was brought to trial. In her defence she could only assert her ignorance of the manner in which the articles came in her trunk and pro test her ignorance. She was found guilty and the sentence of death was pronounced upon her. The hangman's office was inefficiently performed, it being the first attempt of the execu tioner's son. The body was delivered into the hands of the surgeon, by whom it had been purchased. He immedi ately conveyed it home, and was pro ceeding to dissect it when he perceived a slight warmth about the heart. By the prompt use of proper remedies, he restored the suspended animation. In tho meantime he sent for a trustworthy priest, and when the unfortunate girl opened her eyes she supposed herself "in another world," and addressing the priest, (who was a man of marked and majestic countenance,) exclaimed: "Eternal Father, you know my inno cence have pity on me." In her simplicity believing she beheld her Maker, she continued to sue for mercy, and it was sometime before she real ized that she was still in the land*of the living. The surgeon and priest being convinced of her innocence, she retired to a villiage far from the scene of her unjust punishment. The com munity subsequently became acquaint ed with her sfcory, £.&d the author of her misery became an object of re proach and contempt, though it does not appear that any attempt was made to bring him to justice. !^,» NOT IN THE BILLS.—The amusing scene which occurred in Portland dur ing the performance of tho "Octoroon," which was published on Saturday, reminds us of an anecdote of the great tragedian, Junius Brutus Booth. We believe it has never been printed. Manchester, New Hampshire, is celebrated for its button factories. Im mense quantities of buttons arc annu ally turned out in Manchester.

ZW In the last number of the Mac a-Chcck Press, Mr. «-Fuz," gives one more personal reminiscence. He fees a waiter and forthwith ever since feels disconsolate. It is not the waste of money but the principle of the thing The snobbish fashion some noodles have of privately feeing the waiters, is driving all comfort from our hotels. It is a mean, sneaking purchase of a low distinction. The poor devil in dulging in it, thinks he buys the ad miration ot a nigger. But he is swin dled out of this, for the darkey's in sticls after all tell him that the mon eyed man is a snob. Poor human nature. Franklin taught us a lesson long before Fuz was thought of, but the lesson fell on Fuz, in vain. As Franklin paid out his last coin without an adequate consideration rather than appear mean, so your cor respondent Fuz sought to elevate him self in the eyes ot a colored man. I must say iu mitigation of this weak ness that he was a tall dignified look ing darkey, altogether a very impres sive nigger. It happened in this wise: I was laid up in the Hotel at Balti more. Now 1 had nothing in the way of luggage but a carpet bag, and as the 'bus would carry me from the ho tel to the station house on the river for six cents, it was quite unneccessa to pay a hack fifty cents. I saw dif ficulty iu the way. I knew it would require some diplomacy to get through the army of waiters, travelling bag in hand, but I undertook the task and succeeded in getting by all as I tho't, when the tallest of the lot said in his very politest manner as he seized my bag, "Sfiuse me sah, what stage will you take sal:? There was no escape and I quietly submitted. He stopped the omnibus and while tumbling in I hastily searched tor a quarter. Un fortunately 1 found only 3 fiftv cput piece and this I handed* him. He put me in the wrong omnibus, so I was forced to take another, costing an ad ditional six cents. I had the blue devils. My reflections were gloomy and humiliating. I was no true gen tleman—I was a weak hearted snob. Through this weakness I lost ten good Lynn, Mass., is a shoemaker except the min- cigars, or say ten drinks—such as lag ister, and we b?lieve he does his own jer beer or tine Catawba juleps, and for mendifr.

OCTOBER 31, ISfiO. CAUGHT From the Philadelphia Press we learn that the Prince of Wales be haved like a good boy while in that city, writing A long letter—it took him two hours to finish it—to his mother, while ho was in the quaker city. He has also kept a private jour nal during his tour. But he is only mortal after all. Speaking of his at-of tendance at the Philadelphia Academy of Music, the Ityess says: Vague stories have been told of the young Baron's attachments in this country,the latest of these finds its scene in this city. Why the Prince moved from his magnificent' quarters in the private box to the balcony cen ter was.not understood. It- was inby fact speculated upon to a considerable extent as a singular and somewhat erratic whim. It is now said thei'o was a lady in the ease as follows: Miss S., siipprbly attired and very beautiful came in and took a balcony seat not fur distant from the center of the tier. When Albert Edward came fchc was the first one to rise to the third of Patti, in which she sang "God save the Queen," and scavcelj had the chorus sunk and the curtain fell, before her eye glass was levelled at his young Highness. So continued indeed were her atlen tentions that the Prince was attracted and to be attracted towards Miss S. was to to be infatuated. Thenceforth in every pause of "Nartha," the glass of the Prince was leveled at Miss S. The Duke of Newcastle to whom such frailties on Albert Edward's part had become things of ordinary occur rence suggested that seats had been provided for the royal party in the centre of the tier. Then at Albert Edward's request, the Duke and suite removed. It is said that the Prince visited Miss S., on the night in ques tion at the invitation of her father a leading citizen. It is moreover said that Mr. and Miss S., are the only Philadclphiaus besides the Mayor, who have been honored by the Royal hand and that after a delightful half hour passed in the lady's companyk 'the Prince left with her a jewelled focket and expressed his choicest terms of admiration. Is this all fiction. So Ave have heard the tale. ELECTION OP A POPE.—M. About, thus describes the final ballot for Pope Pius IX. The quaestors who were to open the voting tickets were Cardinals Mastai, Vannicelli and Fieschi. Th« opening of the inclosures commenced. Cardi nal Fieschi read each name in a loud voice. Not a breath disturbed the silence. The eyes of the fifty one voters were riveted on the lips of the read er. The name of Cardinal Mastai began to resound. No attention was paid for the first few votes, but when the same name recurred for the tenth time, when it was heard for the twelfth time and for the fifteenth—accompa nied by a smile from Cardinal Fieschi and the joyous looks of the reforming Cardinals—all eyes turned towards that man, who pale as a London day, and trembling, opened the tickets and passed them ou to Cardinal Fies chi. The name of Mastai resounded •rom the twentieth time theu twenty live arc counted then thirty, Mastai spoke no more. He stood motionless. The thirtieth time he sat down and and begged cardinal Fieschi to cease speaking. Mastai feared he might be overtaken with an attack of epilepsy] But the cardinal on the contrary con tinued to raise his voice with more and more solemnity, more and more emphasis. At the thirty-third vote Mastai Feretti sank down in a swoon. It was the number of votes required for the election of Pope. The count ing went on however, to thirty-six. Mastai had sweoued upon the tiari! A A S STKLC'K IL.LV The following story of the coal ex citement in Alleghany Co.,Penn., is as like to nature as if true, as it possi bly is, for that matter: "In a neighborhood on the creek lived and labored a son of Vulcan, who with his limited means, had bearly enough to secure a piece of laud and to obtain scanty living for his family. The ideas of his children had been taught to shoot but little in any direction toward learning or knowl edge or refinement, and ho little ex pected to bceomc anything more than the village blacksmith. But when the oil fever broke out, learning of the success of his neighbors in find? ing oil, he thought that he might while away his spare hours in drilling a hole upon his own homestead lot and having the tools convenient, he went to work, and after a few weeks of patient industry, was successful in obtaining a good show for oil It was soon noised about the village, and the blacksmith was somebody at once. He had a daughter also, who blossomed into maidenhood almost unnoticed and unknown, but now be came more an object of interest to the few young men in that small commu nity. It became a qustion how to break the ice of former indifference, to secure a favorable acquaint ance with the heiress of the oil £wtdl. wsmmam "r^' WHOLE NUMBER 222.

Imagine his chargrin when she, turning upon him a look ot lofty independence that would have done honor to a Broadway.belle, re plied in language more severe than chast! "Nonsense! you can't come that! Dad has struck He."" A GOOD STORY. A good story is told of a Washing ton county man, who on hU way ,toirregularly Cincinnati became somewhat elevated sundry "drinks," but as good luck would have it, found a boat at the wharf and was quickly on his way. Soon after leaving the wharf," a man came around for his fare, llor rall handed out a five dollar bill, and received four dollars and ninety-five cents in change- He rammed it into his pocket book with greaVoagernessj supposing that the clerk had made a mistake. That done he leaned back into his chair and fell asleep. A little while and he was plucked awake by the same man who again demanded his fare. "Discovered the mistake," thought he, holding out a haudfuU of change. The man, as before,* took only five pents," and Horrall again went into a sleep. Ere ha, had got fairly to dreaming of l)Qir}e and the friends fur away, around came the collector again, $ud thus it went on for along time. At last Horrall thought it very in convenient and concluded to vote the conductor a nuisance, and give a bit of advice besids so said ha— "Is [hie) this a da-n-ger [hie] ous ho [hie] boat?" "By no means," said tho man.— Bran new:" "Then why do [hie) don't you col lect all your fare at once—not bother a fel [hie] heller for it every, mile as it [hie] comes due ''Really," said the man, "where do you think you are going?" "Ciucm [hie] hinnati," said Horrall. "Cincinnati," said the polite con ductor "why you must be sadly out of your reckoning. This is the ferry boat, and all this afternoon yon have been riding to and fro between New Albany and Portland." That night Horrall staid at Louis ville. A HUHT1.NG A Col. Dawson, of Louisana, and a party of friends left St. Cloud about the middle of last month, for the Red river, on a Buffalo hunt. They ar rived at St. Cloud on their return, on the 2d inst. The party bagged four teen buffalo, a colored servant named Fielding having killed four, and Col. Dawson three, the next highest re member. They brought with them the following receipt for stalking buffalOjWhich we find in a narrative of their exploits in the St. Cloud Demo crat: The hunter, discovering a herd of buffalo creeps in the grass to the lee ward of the herd, aud keeping watch advances while the l.eader-who cau easily be distingiishcd frdin the others by his manner—is feeding, but when he quits feeding and looks around he must remain perfectly quiet, and thus continue advancing and stopping until he gets withing gun shut, when he mnat raise himself just sufficiently to be able to shoot, then fire, and immediately fall flat upon the ground and remain motionless for several min utes. If he has wounded the buffalo mortally, he will make two or three springs and then fall if hot he would be walking around iu an angry, rest less manner, while the rest of the herd will be feeding, most likely not more than a rod from where they were. The hunter can thcu advance, shoot again, and so continue until he will have killed all he may wish, or the herd takes flight. A E W QUESTIONS.

VANIT E O N E TOMB A correspondent of a London nauer says: I have seen thousands of Egyptian mummies and the catacombs of ChiofT, the holy city of Russia, where the bod ies of saints are laid in rows, in coffins, clothed in their best apparel, and adorned with gold and jewels and iu that extraordinary burial-place I have seen a range of small glasses in a dead stone wall, where wild and desperate fanatics had made their own tombs, with their own hands, building them selves In an upright position ggainst the walls, leaving a small hole open in front by which to recive their bread and water and when they died tho small opening was closed with a piece of glass, and the body of the saint was left thus buried. I have seen the cataeombs of the Capuchia Convent in Syracuse, whero the bodies of the monks are dried and laid in open coffins, or fixed in niches in the walls with their nams labelled on their breasts and in the vault of the Convent of Palermo, I have seen the bodies of nobles and ladies tho men arranged upright along the walls, dressed as in life, with canes in their hands and swords by their sides and the noble ladies of Palermo lyin" in state, their withered bodies clothed in silks and satins, and adorned with gold and jewels. And I remember bn» among them who, if then living, would have been but twenty, who, two years betbro had shone in the bright" con stellation of Sicilljan beauty, and lovtlv as a light from heaven, had led the dance in the royal palace I saw her iu the same white dress, which sho had worn at the ball, complgle even to the white s'.ijipers, the belt around bar waist, and the jeweled mockery of watch hanging at her side as if she ha A not dono with time forever, the iea was bare, the skin was dry, black and shriveled like burned paper, the cheeks sunken, therosv cheek, like a piece of discolored parchment, the teeth ftor rjbh/ projecting, tho. nose .gone, a wreath of roses around her head, .and a long tress of hair curling in each hollow eve, A N AGED NEGKESS.—The following Memorandum is supplied to tho Cei^ sus office by Mr. Moreno, wlio took the census of a portion of Florida.
