W. Curtis delivered a lecture last Saoday, In
Bostofi, on the "Present Aspoct of Slavery,"
and li thus reported In the papers of Monday i
The speaker .believed that many at the
8outhheld to opinions like thoso in Helper's
work, but who dare not to altar their State
Constitutions. Slavery, he asserted with em
phasis, had no real rights. He would not say
that every slaveholder is a bad man, for he
knew many who were not; but to rob a man of
liberty is no leas a crime because it is hemmed
about by law. If, the slave power, said Mr.
Curtis, will stand where our fathers stood, and
ask for mutual all and oounsel how beat to do
away with the great evil, there was not an
honest man anywhere whose heart would not
tremble with joy. But such, unfortunately,
is not the case with the South, They do not
stand where 'Jefferson, and Madison, and
Washington stood. Passing on, he said that
when tha Whig1 party In 1850 dodged the
slavery quest loD. it went down. Then it was
that rose up that anti-slavery party which
will exist in strength and power till the great
question of tht lation is settled. There can
be, he remarked, buttwo partiesjin the country,
one asserting that slavery is right, the other
that it is a moral wrong and a political blunder.
There remains for usi he' continued, but one
course, vis : to1 absolutely - exclude ' slavery
where we have the power, and show to the
slaveholders, what is the truth, that it Is for
their interest to favor emancipation. The
equality of human rights, said Mr. Curtis, is
not bounded by latitude or longitude. aa

The New Orleans correspondent of the Charles

this traitorous attempt of Brown and his vil
lainous confederates reached here, an old
French planter, who formerly held a high
official position in the Stato, and is noted for
his bonhomu, integrity and atraightfoward
manner, at once went ip to his plantation on
the river, called all his negroes up, and read
to them from the newspapers everything con
nected with the insurrection, concluding by
pointing out to his listeners the folly of the
whole affair, calling their attention specially
to the refueal of the Virginia negroes to join
Brown, and the speedy suppression of the
The old gentleman had an object in this.

he confided in their fidelity one attachment,
and his calculation was correct, for they were
delighted with "old matter's apeesh," and
horrified at Brown's blood-shedding attempt.
If John Brown had heard, as I have and

threaten a disobedient negro to send him to
the North or Canada, among the Abolitionists,

prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Young, of
Burlington, Vt, who with Mr. L. G. Bigelow

PEN AND SCISSORS. A Domitian-like Husband--Extraordinary
Cruelty to a Young and Handsome
The following sad story was told in the Dt-1
voroe Court of Great Britain on the 21st of
November: In 1351 Miss Theresa Caroline
Bishop was Introduced to the Hon. Hugh
Rowley, a sen of the late Lord Langford, an
Irish peer, at Ryde. in the Isle ot Wight.
Shortly afterward he proposed and was ac
cepted, and they were married at Paddlngton
In January, 18S2. They went Immediately
after the marriage to Paris, and remained
there for three weeks. According to tbe evi.
denoe of Mrs. Rowley', her husband soon be
gan to treat her with great harshness, and on
one ooeasion, about three weeks after the mar
riage, looked her up in a sitting room from
seven o'olook In the evening until four the fol
lowing morning, without fire or candles. They
went from Paris to Calais for a few days, and
there ho beat her. They next visited Brus
sels. During their stay they visited Waterloo,
and on their journey home ho tore the bonnet
from her bead and threw H into the road, and
forced his hat over her eyes.
f rom .Brussels they went to Fraukfort.
traveling in a compartment of a railway car
riage by themselves. He kept kicking her
during tbe journey because, as he said, some
one had looked at her at the station. When
she arrived at Frankfort she fainted, and was
taken to a hotel. She asked for a glass of
water on coming to her senses, and he forced
a spoonful of salt down hsr throat. They af
terward returned to Paris and traveled by
diligence from Strasbourg, The Journey occu
pied twenty hours, and he did not allow her
to get out of the oarriece all tbe time. She
mentioned various other acta of ill-usage. In
maron, moi, wnnetney were at Boulogne, he
cut off her hair, aaying he did ao became she
priiea it. About the same time he pulled her
out of bed when she was ill. and threatened to
strike her with a meat chopper. He also re
fused to let a doctor attend her, and she sent
for one without his knowledge.
in January, 1833, liiey were at Dunda k. In
Ireland, where a regiment In whioh he held a
commission, tue sixteenth Lancers, was quar
tered. Among other modes of ill treatment
whioh he thero practiced, be never allowed
her to leave the house. He told her that the
officers of his regiment had held a sham court
martial upon him bees use be had boasted of
Beating hit wire. Tho result was that in tha
following May he left the army. They after
ward lived together at Brussols for thirteen
months, but he was In the constant habit of
going away and leaving her for a week at a
time. During a part or tne years ibod and
1855, she lived with her mother and with Mr.
and Mrs. Gye, who ore friends of her family,
Mr. Rowley made frequent prom isosot amend
ment, and at thebtglnnlng of 185S they again
lived together in lodgings, In Upper Berkeley
street, ' i
. On ths 24th of May, I860, ha went away,
saying he would return in a few days and
take her abroad, and leaving an addreHs to
whioh she could write. She did write several
letters, but received no answer, and never
saw nor heard anything of him until a few
months ago. .She laid he had never given her
as taueh as a sixpence from the time of tbelr
marriage. She prayed for a decree on the
ground of adultery, desertion and cruelty. It
was proved by other witneaset that Mr. Row
ley, after leaving his wife, had gone to live
with a Mrs. Green, a widow, at the bouso of
her mother,, in Edinburgh, andlhtt from May,
1858, until April, he and Mrs. Green cohabited
as man aad wife at Ipplepen, in Devonshire.
In ApriL 1859, Mrs. Green died, and he left
the place. A dissolution of marriage waB

patent for making plaits and curls' for head
dresses and other head ornaments, and employs
Russian or American hemp, dyed to the ex
aet ibade desired, and glossed up with arom
atlo grease, and curled to adorn the head of
some happy fair one, either with flowing au
burn or raven locks, as may be desired. When
it is taken into consideration that long brown
hair, for making ladles' artificial curls, costs
from $10 to $12 per pound, Mr. S. may be
considered a sort of benefactor to all those in
dividuals deficient in natural cranial orna
mentation, although we think this invention
will rather spite the girls In Normandy, who
cultivate their, hair expressly for our wig-
Scientific Americans.

The (burner det Elatt Unit publiahes the fol
lowing: "Mr. Milliard Fillmore, Ex-President
of the United States, has just addressed a
letter to M. Rollin Oormain, asking him to ex
plain at a jiublio meeting the principles on
whioh this ingenlns inventor believes he oan
build a steamahip which will make one hun
dred miles an hour, and whose strength will
reaiat the fury of tbe ocean and even the
shock of collision with other vessels. When
this steamer Is laden with passengers, freight,
provision, and coal for a voyage round the
world, she will only draw at most twenty-two
feet of water, and a singular fact Indeed the
expense of the voyage will only be about one
fifth what it would be in the steamers now
afloat. ; lor thirteen years M. Rollin Germain
has been study ing his new system of mechan
ism and buildiag, and eminent engineers In
the United States have assured blm that his
disoovery is destined to make an epoch in the
history of steam navigation."
