A Woman Masbiid, Divomcio Vtou axo
Rswsddbo to raa Sau Husbaro. A mar
riage, under rather singular eireamstances,
according to the Cleveland Htratd, took place
at Liverpool, Medina County, in this Stat,
reoently. In,' November, i860, Mr. Brasttta
Salsbury was married to Miss Helen Prltchard.
The marriage took place in Liverpool, and the
parties lived happily together for about a year
and half, when the husband set out to "make
his pile" in California. Years rolled on; the
husband toiled in the mines, and the wife re
mained at home waiting anxiously for his
return. By and by rumors reached her of his
infidelity, and after waiting a weary period
the apparently deserted wife obtained a di
vorce on the around of wilful neglect, and
Mrs. Erastus Salsbury again became Miss
Helen Pritchard. The divoroe was obtained
about a year sinoe. Not very long after the
wife waa again made a "spinster," the hus
band returned from California, and was aston
ished to find himself onoe more a baohelor.
An explanation was at length obtained. The
bachelor-husband declared to the unmarried
wife that the story of his Infidelity was untrue.
He commenced an active courtship, and the
happy ooupls were fe-nnited at the same place
where the nuptial bond was first tied, just nine
years before. .v ., . . ,: ,

TcairiD Hccmtib. Not thirty years ago
there ooutd be seen in the markst of Mobile,
Ala., a sturdy, coarsely-droned old French
man, of Intelligent and strongly-marked coun
tenance, whose manners, even while chaffering
for the price of a cabbage or a string of gar
lick, betrayed the man of eduoation, who had
onoe moved in brilliant and distinguished cir
cles. His occupation was that of a vegetable
vender not that of the huoksters who fore
stall the market by baying from tbe pro
ducers, and by combination among themselves
settling tbe prioes to be paid by the oity con
sumers but that of the honest seller of the
produoti of his own Industry the yield of
little gardes, upon which he had established
himself In the neighborhood of the oity. A
few years afterward this vegetable seller might
have been seen at tbe head of the armies of
Louis Phillippe, of France, and in the Gov
ernorship of Algeria. He had previously
filled tho higher position of one of Napoleon's
most trustworthy Marshals. Such was the

MoCarty. As a natural oon sequence a fight
soon ensued, and while that was in progress a
notorious fellow, named Patrick Cosgrove,
alias "Patssy Cockroach," was stabbed, re
ceiving injuries from whioh he died about
five months sinoe. The whole party were ar
rested at the time of the ooeurrenoe, but were
discharged, .the wounded man refusing to
make a complaint. On Saturday morning

time ago in All tht Ytar Sound, wrote to Mr.
DIokens on the tubjeot. Mr. Dickons, in re
ply, denied that tbe complaint was reasona
ble, declared that he never "pandered to any
acrimonious or Intolerant feeling" against the
Roman Cathollo Chnroh, and added the fol
lowing well-raerited thrust: "Let me, In all
good humor, recommend you to observe
whether its (the Church) accredited organs are
as considerate toward Protestants, and to give
your judgment of me the benefit of the com
parison." A Sensation Scit in Pabis. Leonie Chereau
has been tried in a Parts Court for stealing a
child in the Tulleries Gardens. The ease ex
cited great interest in fashionable circles. The
facts briefly were these: Leonie was seduced
in Orleans under promise of marriage. In
order to seoure this, she assented that she had
iven birth to a child. She was asked to pro
ne it, and then oonceived the plan, the ex
ecution cf which was tbe cause of her aDDoar-
ance in Court. Having Ingratiated herself
wits a simple-minded country nurse in the
Tuileriss Gardens, she stole the baby she had
in charge while her baok was turned, and with
it deceived all her friends.' The jury found
her Not Guilty, and she was Immediately set
at liberty. ,i .

Ossawatomie Brown's Last Conversations.
Th Obarlestown correspondent of the Balti
more SxeKcmgt says in Into issue :
A few daye since John Moore, Esq., a vary
wealthy and estimable' gentleman, visited
Brown. Shortly after entering, Brown intro
duced the subjeot'Of slavery, but Mr. Moore
told him that he had no disposition to dlsouss
it. Brown asked him how many slaves he
owned, when Mr. M. replied he did not know
the number, but he was sure he had one, s
woman eighty years'of age, whose eyesight, he
was sorry to say, had failed. He had a few
days before given an eminent physician $100
for operating oq thorn, and If it was possible
to restore her eight he wonld give $5,000.
Brown asked bim what he would take for the
old servant, when Mr. Moore replied that all
the Abolitionists in tha North were too poor to
bay her. Th conversation here ended.
Brown, in conversation with tbe jailer, said
that if he did not see his wife before he was
executed, he would like to express his desires
relative to th disposition of his body. Gov.
Wise has assured him that it would be at tbe
disposal of bis friends, and accordingly the
jailer was requested to say to Mrs. Brown, or
whoever csm for it, that he did not desire
to have it' removed North, but wanted it
placed uport a pyre and burut, and the ashes
urned. He 'also requested that the bodies of
his tons, who were killed at the Ferry, might
be disinterred and disposed of in the same
manner, , The last part of the request could
not have been complied with, as the physi
cians of Winchester had used their bodies in
the dissecting-nxfm.
" Yesterday morning (Deo. ij Brown was
more than .ordinarily cheerful. The jailer
remarked that he hoped bis fine flow of spirits
would continue on to-day. Brown replied
that he "knew the community expeoted that
he would 'jBbow foar, but they would find
themselves disappointed. They did not un
derstand (he quality of material of which he
was made," After this remark, he took a
hearty laugh.
SiNdDLiB Social Cokdition in Pabis. Th
Paris correspondent of the Boston TnvtlUr
writes in a reoent letter: Social changes take
plitoe more rapidly here than elsewhere, be
oause thtiie Is no such thing as sooiety hore.
There are so many avalanches of foreigners
oonstantly falling on Paris, from every direc
tion, t whole soil is oonstantly shifting or
ploughed up, while the very essence of soeiety
(a stability, which alone enables those perma
nent relations to be formed which engender
eonfldene and ease, and that shadow of affno
tion and sympathy, begotten by loug-contin-ued
familiar acquaintance and commerce. The
absence of everything liko personal dignity,
and all sense of that ilelioaoy of morals found
in the : Frenob, joined with their inordinate
love of pleasure s'ud excitement, makes them
eagerly receive tho hospitalities of everybody,
without stopping to enquire whether they (the
latter) have anything iu their favor more than
wealth.' This is one secret of the success
which Paris enjoys. There Is sot a man of
money in all Europe ignorant of the truth
that the gold he commands will enable him
to collect nearly "all Paris" under his ball
room chandelier or dining-room lamp, if the
whim should strike him to forget home
slights in foreign aduhtions.
Things have at last some to suoh a pass thnt
It is not vtn considered neoessary for xa in
troduction to herald invitations to balls, eon
certs, 'or even dinners. The stranger sends
his eafd,nand the Invitation, to the person he
wishes to see in his honse; the latter accepts
or rejects it as it suits with his faumnr. There
are noble families who maintain thomselves
and many off their daughters, by patronising
wealthy foreigners; that is, they bring their
visiting, Dan, ana dinner lists by their influ
ence to tho foreigner's house, and at the
foreigner's table and ball, liquidate, as it
were, by attorney, their own sooial debts. It
Is even whispered these noble families do not
always disdain levying a commission on tho
pnrchaoes made from tradesmen by the wealthy
foreigners; and marriages and doaths have
been known to fill empty pockets with pin
money for a year.
Lack op Ebucaxion Asioko Tin AQHiceMu
baL Cuss is in England. It is a very singu
lar fast that England, whioh has the advantage
over moat other oountries, in the degree of
politioal liberty enjoyed by her Inhabitants,
should be so far behindhand as she Is In the
matter of general eduoation. While a liberal
provision had long ago boon made in her
Universities and Colleges for instructing the
nobility and gentiy of the kingdom in the
anoient classlos, and in such ' branches of
knowledge as it was thought most desirable
that they should become acquaintod with, it is
only quite lately that institutions hare been
established for toaohing to the working olas.es
of the eemmunity anything beyond the veriest
rudiments and the agricultural (population
have been allowed to remain to this day in a
state of lamentable ignorance. .
! The Rev. Mr. Pilkington, Chaplain to Wal
singham Bridewell, in the County of Norfolk,
draws a gloomy picture of "the awful, almost
Ineredible, ignorance of the agricultural classes
in this district of Norfolk," and there is no
evidence that the condition of ..things in this
respect is any worse there than In other parts
of the oountry.
It is stated by Mr. Pilkington that during
the past year two hundred and forty prisoners
were committed to Bridewell, and of these one
hundred and twenty-one oould not read a
letter in a book, one hundred and fifty-seven
could not write their names, fifty-seven oould
not say a word of the Lord's Prayer, and
eighty-four oould say it but imperfectly; sixty
one oould not tell who Jesus Christ was, or
mention how or for what purpose he died, and
were to all Intents and purposes heathens. -
Ralph Waldo Emsrson on John Brown
Onus Mors. A John Brown mooting was
held at Musical Hall in Boston last Sunday,
at which R. W. Emerson delivered an address
on "Morals." The tenor of thought running
through the discourse was that a high stand
ard of morality faithfully adhered to, gives to
man his noblest flights and Inspires his grand
est and best deeds. "Morals"heoharacterized
as "A soience of substanoe, not of shows." in
treating of the power which attachment to a
great Idea or principle will accomplish in the
individual, and out in society and tha world,
ho alluded to the recent events in ths life of
John Brown.'.' Th determination of giving
freedom to those who were In bondago of es
tablishing a moral, intellectual governmental
equality such had lifted an obsoura Connec
ticut farmer Into the regions of the great man;
and mad all others appear Inferior men. It
was hard, he said, to find in all his life but
one so noble a man as this who had dared to
saorifioe life to principle. A few such men,
the speaker asserted, bad done more for tbe

Aess or tbi English Prxrr. It is sot a
little singular that of the score or so of Peers
who hive died since the commencement of the
year, there are sixteen whose united ages
amount to bo less than 1,239 years, giving an
average of seventy-six-and a-half years to
each, and setting at naught the dictum of
David as to "three score years and ten." .
A Obild-likh MoTstaa. An Italian girl,
Marguerite Faello, only thirteen years of ago,
arrived at St Louis from New Orleans, re
cently, with a ohild in her arm, to which she
had recently given birth. Her husband is
twenty-live years old, and living in New

Sr. Louis, December 7. A dispatoh from
?bn Francisco, on the 14th alt, dated at 0
o'clock P. M., via Gilroy, says that the Bull
tin of that evening contained the following ed
itorial remarks: ' f i
"We learn from a retlablo source that Gen
eral Scott, urwn bia recent arrival in thevi
otnlty of British Columbia, dispatched a letter
to the authorities of Vancouver's Island, an
nouncing bia arrival and indicating his read
iness to confer with the British authorities,
with the view of a peaceful solution of the
San Juan difficulty." :
At the last aoeounta, Col. Lay, bearer of
Scott's latter, had not returned; therefore
nothing was known as to the spirit in whioh
the General's communication was received. .
Should Uov. Donglass act In a spirit of
frankness and moderation, there is reason to
believe that an arrangement will be mad for
tbe entire withdrawal of Harney's force, and
a restoration of the same condition of affairs
at San Juan as existed prorious to the occu
pation. ,
It is not at all probable, however, that Scott
will assent to make an apology for Harney's
act, or arrange for the joint occupation of the
Island. If ha withdraws the troops at all, it
will be done distinctly as a concession to Brit
ish Bonsibility, with a clear understanding
that such withdrawal is not to be considered
as implying doubt to the American title to the
disputed Territory, but that its sole objeot is
to restore matters to such a position that
England may with honor to hersslf, resume
active negotiations for the settlement of tbe
boundary question by treaty.

Ths Splendor or Damascus. Damasouo Is
the oldest city in the world. Tyre and Sydon
have orumbled on the Bhorej Baalbee Is a ruin;
Palmyra Is buried In the sands of the desert;
Ninevah and Babylon have disappeared from
the Tigris and Euphrates; Damascus remains
what It was before the days of Abraham a
neuter of trade and travel an island of verdure
iu a desert "a predestined capital,", with
martial and sacred associations extending
through more tban thirty centurion. It was
"near Damasous" that Saul of Tarsus saw
tbe "light from Heaven above the brightness
of the site;" the street which is called Strait,
in which it was said "he prayeth, ' still runs
through tbe city.. Tho caravan comes and
goes as it did a thousand years ago; there are
still tho sheik, the ass and the water-wheel;
the merchant of the Euphrates and of the
Mediterranean still "occupy" these "with
the multitude of their waters." Thecity which
Mahomet surveyed from a neighboring hliilit,
and was afraid to enter, because it is given to
man to have but one Piiradise, and lor his part
ho was resolved not to have it in this world, is
to this day, what J alian called "the eye of the
East," as it was in the time of Isaiah, "the
head of Syria." From Damascus oame the
damson, our bluo plum, and the delicious apri
cot of Portugal, called daruosoo; damask, our
beautiful fabrio of ootton and silk, with vines
and flowers raised upon a smooth bright ground;
the damask rose, introduced into England in
time of Henry the VIII; the Damasous blade,
so famous the world over for its keen edge and
wonncriui elasticity, tne secret ot whose man
ufacture was lost when Tamerlane carried off
the arts into Persia; and that beautiful art of
inlnjirg wood nnd steel with silver and geld,
a kiud of Mosaio entrraving and sculpture
unitedcalled Damaskeening, with whioh
boxes and bureaus, and swords, and guns are
ornamented. It is still a city of flowers and
bright waters; the streams from Lebanon, the
"rivers of Damascus," the "rivers of gold,"
still murmur and sparkle in tbe wilderness of
"Syrian gardone." . . i
Staff and Crook. The staff which was used
by his Lordship, Bishop Do Charbonnel, at the
consecration of the Coadjutor Bishop of To
ronto, was composed of an old staff of the late
lamented Bishop McDonnell, and the crook
wits that used by the Abbot of St. Fillan to
bless the Scottish army at tha battle of Ban
nookburn. It is of solid silver with some reiio
enolcsed upon a white stone, and the work
manship conclusively proves its antiquity. It
is probable that suoh an Interesting staff was
never held on a similar occasion by any oon
scorator outside of the eity of Borne. It was
while kneeling before the Abbot, holding this
blessed staff in his hand, that the English
monarch remarked that the Scots were suing
for mercy. He found his mistake, however,
Schamyl'b , Arrival at his Residence.
The Journal d St. Petertbourg announces tbe
arrival of Sohatayl at Ealonga, the tows se
lected for his residenoe; He was attended by
his son and three murides, and alighted at tbe
principal hotel of the place. , The next day he
paid a visit to the Governor, And afterward
went to see the house Intended for him. He
was particularly struck by the block marble
busts of two Qreek philosophers in one of
the rooms, and after many questions respect
ing the persons they represented, he requested
to have them removed, as his wives would be
frightened at the dark faoes. He expressed
himself perfectly satisfied with tbe house and
locality in which it was situated.
An Ultra Anti-Slaveft Papib. A new
paper, entitled Brown't Grimi, has been started
at Painesville, Ohio, by Jno. B. French, for
merly of the Painesville Telegraph. He ac
counts for ths title by saying : "This is the
designation whioh a largo proportion of the
press apply to the con flic t at Harper's Ferry.
W protest against suoh abuse of language. Is
It not enough that the brave veteran who
dared to strike for liberty is struck down by
the hirollDgs of slavery, and now lies wounded
and helpless In the prison of malignant and
cruel foes, doomed to a speedy death?" '
A Ti'SMBLg Accident ibom Hoops. The
fashion of hoops has been the means of a terri
ble accident at Salem, Oregon. ; Miss Ellen
Umphlot was riding on horseback, when, losing
her balance, she fell backward, and her hoops
caught upon tbe horn of the saddle. ; The
horse became frightened and ran with ber along
a fonee for several hundred yards, when the
point of a rail caught in her month, tearing
the whole side of ber face out and breaking
ber jaw in two plswes the oononssion stripping
the clothes entirely from her, and thus freeing
hr from the horse. . i ,
Anrcdotr or Colebidsb. Coleridge waa a
remarkably awkward horseman, to much so
as generally to attract attention. He was one
day riding on the turnpike road in the country
of Durham, when a wsg approaching him,
r.otised his peculiarity, and mistaking his
man, thought the rider a fine subject for a
little sport, and as he drew near he thnt ac
costed Mr. Celiridge: "I say, young' man,
did you meet a tailor on the road 7" "Yes,"
replied Coleridge, who was never at a loss for
a rejoinder, "I did,1 and he told me if I went
a little further I should meet a goose I" "
