Arches and festoons were to be seen over a
number of the streets; and portraits of "Wash

from the windows in different parts of the
olty. The shouts of the messes, the smiles of
the women, and the waving of handkerchiefs,
attested the enthusiasm whioh existed among
the entire populace of the Queen City.

Doil. A hostile meeting took place on the
28th ult., in New Orleans, between Ernest
uanonge and Mr. Victor (ierodlas; the former
gentleman being, we believe, the manager of
the Theater D 'Orleans, and former musical
critis ef the Delta, In which capacity he killed
his antagonist in a duel, some months elnoe,
in a difficulty growing out of the merits or de
merits of Plscolomini. Of the recent affair
the Delta says: - The weapons u.ed were
double-barrel guns, loaded with ball, and the
distance forty paces. According to the ar
rangements, tne parties had a right to Ore be
tween the words "fire" and "three." The
principals having token their position, the
word was given for tbe first fire, and both guns
were discharged at the word fire, almost simul
taneously. -Neither ot the parties being
touohed, the gun were loaded a seoond time
and the word given. The weapons were again
discharged nearly at the tame moment at the
word fire, Mr. Gerodlaa receiving his antago
nist's ball in the left knee. He made an ef
fort to stand, but fell. The wound is a very
serious one, tnd tbe opinion of the physician
is that he can never recover the use of the
left leg, and possibly may have to lose it.

Jbtiebsoh's' Vibw or Disunion. The views
of Jefferson, on almost every subject, are
looked upon with great favor by tbe Democ
racy, and the following is bit view of the dis
union question. In a letter written to John
Taylor, of Caroline, dated June 1, 1798, Jef
ferson said: "If, on the temporary superior
ity of the one party, the other is to resort to a
scission ef the Union, no Federal Government
can ever exist. If. to rid ourselves of the
present rule of Massachusetts and Connecti
cut, we break the Union, will the evil
stop here? Suppose the New England States
alone be out off. will our nature be sbanged T
Are we not men still to the South of that, and
wun an tne passions of men 7 immediately
we shall see a Pennsylvania and a Virginia
party arise on the residuary Confederacy, and
the public mind will be distraoted with the
same party spirit. ' Whtt a game, too,
will one party have in their bands, by
eternally threatening the other that, unless
they do so and so, they will join their Northern
neighbors! If we reduce our Union to Virginia
ana norm uarouns, immediately the conflict
will be established between the representatives
of tbe two States, and they will end by break
ing up in their simple unit. Beeing, there
fore, that an association of men who will not
quarrel with ene another is l thing wbioh
never yet existed, from the greatest confed
eracy of nations down to a town meeting or a
vestry ; seeing that we mutt have somebody
to quarrel with, I had rather keep our New
England associate for that purpose, than to
see our biokerings transferred to others.
Who ean tay what would be the evils of a
eoliiion, and when and where they would
end? Better keep together as we are;
haul off from Europe at soon at we can, and
from all attachments to all portions of it; and,
if they show their power, just sufficiently to
hoop us together, it will be the happiest situa
tion in which we oan exist. If the game was
sometimes against us tt home, we must have
patience till Inok turns, and then we shall
have an opportunity to win baok the princi
ple we have lost."
Alleged Ihcohbibtbhot or ah Ahti-Slavbbt
Clibthih. A New York correspondent of a
New Orleans paper makes this assertion :
Quite a sensation was created in Parson
Cheever's Churoh of the Puritans, by the ad
vent of an English party attended by a servant
la livery, who, upon seating himself near his
master, (I beg his pardon,) employer, was or
dered to the gallery, the consistent Cheever
itas not approving tbit dole proximity of one
of their cherished pets. The party conse
quently left the churoh in high dudgeon, and
proceeded to a eolored chapel, where they
were received with due impreuement... This
story has been contradicted and denied; never
theless it it abeolutely true, and everybody does
not know that the Engllih gentleman is a
cousin of Prince Albert, satisfied probably by
thl tlmethat Amerioans are not quite so re
publican at he was led to suppose; and al
though it is easy for Friar Oheever to send fe
male emissaries to Exeter Hall on begging ex
peditions for Imaginary negroes, yet when one
of tbe speoies appear among them, they re
fuse to reoogntze his existence or tolerate his
presence. This is just at true as the faot I
onoe before mentioned to you of Mr. Cheever's
preaching an Abolition sermon and afterward
apologizing for it to one of the most influen
tial of his congregation, who has long since
seceded from the Puritan Churoh. "Consist
ency, tho;i art a jewel," rare enough.

proves, in glowing terms, the letter recently
addressed by the Rev. Robert J. Breckinridge,
of Kentuoky, to hit nephew, John C. Breck

and lays:
It is a comprehensive and exhaustive re

as well as the whole Southern States, would
be gainers in the end to msintain their rights,
if needs be, by force of arms, and amid the
horrors of a civil war, terrible at these latter
always are, than to resort to the last and direst
alternative of destroying the constitutional
structure or tbe Uovernment of these United
States, and dissolving the Union that contains
them, because such a struggle would pass away,
leaving its true, it mournful wrecks, to show
how the devastations had raged for the time
being; and then the people, learning by sad
experience the evils of an internecine struggle,
would find the strong timbers and the founda
tions of the great structures whioh their fath
ers erected still remaining, and they oould re
invest them with the attributes, and cover
them with the gorgeous adornments of, and

Excellent Mod of Filliko ah Ice-House.
The Winstead (Conn.) Herald gives the follow'
ing account of the manner In which Mr.
Goodwin, of New Hartford, fills his loe-house :
Mr. uoodwln is supplied with excellent water
from a spring, at a considerable elevation
above his house. Connected with the pipe
which supplies the latter, is a branch pipe
leading to the loe-house. across which tt is
extended. Within the ice-house thispipe.it
pleroed by twenty or thirty small holes, from
which as many fine jets of water rise to the
roof, falling baok in drops over the whole bot
tom surface of the houie. These jots are only
let on when the weather is cold, and the doors
and ventilators being opened . the water freezes
a it fall, and in a few day, or week at
farthest, the house is filled with a single block
of perfeotly pure, transparent ice. Mr. Good
win' Ice keeps through the entire season with
much let watte than tost packed in the or
dinary way. It costs him nearly nothing.

thb DcMifl A Pari correspondent relate
the following: Mon. Alex. Dumas, the
younger, la seriously annoyed by the publioity
his father gives to every detail of their per
sonal history; for hi father has few secrets
from the public. He gave some time ago long
details of hi son's amour la the publio pa
pers. His son hat remonstrated again and
again with him; but when he begint to ser
monize the father look at his ton and laughs
so heartily at what appear to him a droll
sight, the son is soon obliged to give up in
despair. Sometimes his father makes him so
very angry, a harsh speech -will escape him,
and If It be witty none laugh louder or more
heartily than bis father. He said one day,
after a most giddy revelation had been made
by his father, "Really, my father ha so muoh
vanity he is capable of riding behind his own
carriage, to make the people in tbe street be
lieve he owns a negro waiter." Toung Mons.
Dumas was dining one day with some young
literary men, when one of them told a most
amusing story of oreditor life: how a creditor
got rid of a most Importunate debtor as Don
Juan freed himself from Monsieur DImanoh.
Young Mons. Duma roared with laughter.
"Don't you know your father is the hero?"
whispered one of the guests in his ear. "'Taint
possible! Father the hero? Lai man, if he
were, he'd Have told It in his memoirs."
His father for a long time held that the son
was to methodioal even to be a man of talent,
and was fond of saying that ene day he got
up in the morning and could not find a single
pair of boots, but upon looking into, his ton't
wardrobe, he discovered no less than twelve
pairs on a shelf. "That lad will never be a
man of genius!" One day, Mons. Alex. Du
mas, tbe father, was boasting of his pedigree
and asserting his right (which it unques
tioned) to the title of Marquis de la Paills
terie, until the company began to gape with
fatigue. The son exolaimed "Peace, peace,
we all know your armorial bearings; you show
them often enough. They are muoh jaw on
little gold." I may join to this series of anec
dotes two other whioh exhibit the character
of father and son in a striking light. - Young
Mons. Duma perceived on thi eve of the
maturity of several bills that he lacked about
on hundred francs of their total amount. He
went to bis father and asked him to lend him
a hundred francs. "I can't, to save my life
and soul," replied the father. "I was going
around to you to borrow fifty, and fifty franc
I must have." Young Damns left his father
fifty franes poorer than when he entered, and
found himself obliged to borrow a hundred
anumty iranos.
A religious exchange, in reviewing Miss Cath
erine E. Batcher's "Appeal to the People in
behalf of their Rights, aa authorized Interpre
ters of the Bible,", sayt:
"It has been jocosely said that the Beecher
family constitute a distinct olass and division
of the human race, but it is equally obriuus
that they are as unlike to each other as they
are to the 'rest of mankind.' ; Dr. Ed. Beecher,
in his Concord of Agee, just published, starts
with tbe assertion that all the evils and con
flicts in the religions world oome of wrong
ideas of God, and sets out to reform all theol
ogies In this regard, and bring the disjointed
world into ooncord by putting all on the right
track. His lister Catherine, in tbe book be
fore us, thinks that the Augustinian theory of
the 'origin of evil,' I not only the apple of
discord, but really the mlsohievous heresy so
fruitful of evil, that all the misery and sin of
the world may be traced to it; and to make
men believe that they are not naturally
sinners - at all, 1 the only way to cure
them of this commonly prevailing ' mal
ady. Tbe plan of talvatlon that the pro
poses has but slight resemblance to the one
instituted by the Redeemer of men. If theo
logical dogmas are propagated like 'original
sin the venerable lather of this notable fam
ily has a progeny of strangely diverse and
anomalous heresies and isms to father.
