The London Ifewt, received by the Bohemian,
obearvei: "One of the leading provisions of
the Constitution is that all territory within the
republic shall always be equally open to the
eitisena of all the States, but the constitutional
liberty has long been virtually lost; . g. Dr.
Charming, one of the most honored divines in
the whole nation, could not, so long as five-and-twenty
years ago, set his foot in half the
States without imperilling his life; but the
Constitution eould never be expressly set
aside; and there Ii now less reAson than ever
lor such a violation of Republican principles.
It would be a marvel that any oitizen oould
dream of it, if if were not notorious that the
inhabitants of the slave States have by degrees
parted with all tbelr highest liberties, io as to
have lost the sentiment of freedom. By their
censorship of the press they have forfeited the
privileges of gettoral literature; and the igno
rance and narrowness of the oommunity concur
with political passion to reduce the ohances of
any accommodation with the majority who de
mand the emancipation of labor. -'
A Rich Historic Yiab, This year promises
to be rich io histories. There are now forth
coming two new volumes of Fronde's History
of England, treating of the reigns of Edward
VI and Queen Mary; Mr. Buckle's second
volume of the History of Civilisation, at last
announced to be in press; a new volume of
Mr. Crowe's History of France, and a similar
sample of Mr. Maesey's History of England,
during the reign of George III; Mr. Banoroft's
new volume of the American Revolution; be
side which there is a chance of a fresh portion
of Lord Maoaulay's History, completing the
career of his hero, William III. Mr. Carlyle
has sent one of the volumes of his Life of
Frederiok the 6reat to press; another will
shortly follow, and both will be published
early in the coming spring, bringing the his
tory of his hero down to the end of the Seven
Years' War. To these the forthcoming third
volume of Baron Bunson's Egypt's Place In
the World's History, may be added.
Tbb Ewot of Public Scandal ir Fraci.
A letter from Tours Bays that Binoe her ac
quittal M'lle Angelina Lemolne, whose trial
with that of her mother for destroying the for
mer's infant, we have mentioned, has received
several offers of marriage; she will, however,
be delivered over to the oustody of her father,
who Intends to place her in a convent during
her minority. Fetis, the coachman, received
a doucew of 100f., while the trial waa going on,
for going to a photographer's to sit for his
portrait. The house ot Chinon, whioh Mdme.
and M'lle. Lemolne inhabited, is advertised
for sale, and orowds of people go every day to
look at it. On the chimney-piece In the draw
ing room, there are two porcelain vases, In the
ityle ,of ,the empire, representing subjects
which have a atrange bearing on the doings
that went on in the autumn of 1858, and led
to suoh a tragical conclusion.
Minis. The London papers contain accounts
of the annual meetings of the shareholders of
a large nnmber of copper companies. Six of
them made dividends, but as the amount only
of the dividend Is given and not the rate per
cent, and the paid up capital is not reported,
we cannot judge how profitable has been the
working. Eleven companies show a profit,
but make no dividend, and several of them
have made new assessments. Seven others
are reported, with the balance on the wrong
side of the profit and loss aooount.
RiMOiotra Ihtolxbaitci iwSwidik. A reso
lution has been submitted to the Swedish Diet
by a olergyman named Jansen, enacting that
the entire Swedish clergy shall henoefortb
have complete control over all printed papers
or pamphlets circulated by the hawkers, end
that, moreover, severe punishments shall be
inJicted on all laymen who Bhall diaouss reli
gious subjects without first having been ex
amined and authorised by a Protestant olergy
man, 1 The proposition was unanimously
adopted, and some members proposed even
more stringent measures.
An Absconding Swindlib. A person named
Hinka has absconded from Birmingham, Eng
land, leaving it to be discovered that he has,
to an enormous extent, robbed various socie
ties with whioh he was conneoted. The
amount la not yet clearly ascertained, but it Is
certainly not less than 10,000, and the moat
distressing feature in the matter ia the fact
that -the greater part of this money was. the
oara carnea savings or tne working classea.
It ia supposed tt-at Hinka hag made for
America. .
' Rimrdt roB Hydrophobia, A freeze up
like the present is always dangerous on so
count of dogs. They can get no drink, and
become mad. Every person owning a dog
should be careful to supply the : animal
mal with water, daily, as the best preventive
against hydrophobia. Frequent oases of this
terrible disease occur in sevore winter weather,
simply because the poor dogs find it Impossi
ble to supply themsolves with water. Ice and
snow only aggravate the thirst they must
have water. ,

There was no fine sand in his composition,
cleeky and ignomlnioasly sliding through the
hour-glass ot life. Ho was an angular bit of
granite that kept its place on the shore of
events though all the surges of the sea beat
ugalnat it. Ue was a gnarled oak, unbending
bofore the tempest. : In this place, nor at this
time, we neither discuss bis aims nor his con
flict; neither its wisdom nnr its consequences;
we have to do to-day with a stern, single
minded, God-fearing Puritan, who baa died
fi r an idea, and that a disinterested and gen
erous one. We will not allow any opinion
upon his prinoiulen to jar with the rightful
estimate of his personal qualities, i We do not
treat him as a martyr, but aa a man; The

"Malakoff" writes to the New York Timet.-
The condemnation of Mme. Lemoine to
twenty years hard labor in the Penitentiary,
und the acquittal of the daughter, la a judg
ment which, if not generally approved, is cer
tainly not far from justioe. ' The punishment
is two removes below that demanded by the
indictment-that , is to say, the guillotine.
The duughter was acquitted on account of her
oxtreme youth, and the loose manner in which
her religious education was eondnotrd. Her
lavorito reading waa the Coufurioiu of Marion
Dtlorme, or those of Jean Jacqua Routtcau.
She evidently acted without discernment.
She has been brought to Paris by her rela
tives, aud placed under the charge of the
SiBtera of Charity.
A aingul ar incident conneoted with the crime
of Mme, Lemoino shows how it is possible td
mingle poetry with crime a sentiment of re
ligious piety with an act of cruel barbarity.
The magistrate charged with the examination
of the house of Mme, Lemoine, found in the
ashes of the chimney mingled with the re
mains of the burnt child, aomo flowers a
jasmin and a rose placed there as upon a
grave. ,
Tng Widow op Balzac a "Modri" Wipb.
I'be New York Borne Journal of last week, In
giving the story of the widow of Balzao, who
recently bestowed her hand and fortune upon
an artist, on the condition that she should re
tain the name of her dead husband, said that
she had married "dlgnoux the pointer." Aa
thoro happens to bo but one artist cf that
name, the friends of our landscape painter
may be rather atart'ed at the announcement.
The right man ia Qigoux, the historical painter,
and the announcement of hia marriage to
Madame Balzac, "who gave to crt what gold
could never buy," conveya to uh for the first
time the knowledge of the death of Gigonx'a
flirt wife, who was the celebnted model,
Marietta, renowned for her beamy, and whose
lovely presence is known to the" world, from
her having served aa the model for Delaroohe's
figure of Fame In the famons picture of the
"Hemicyle des Beaux Arte," ooples of whioh
decorate innumerable parlors in this New
World. Glgoux married her partly for love,
and partly that he might monopolize her for
hia own piotures.
