Since the commencement of the riots the
Police Commissioners have pursued a praise
worthy course in the subsistence of the forces
fcoth police and military, which it became ne
cessary to use for the protection of ihe eitv
against the rioters. J
Sergeant John Young of the Detective Police
was made chief of the Commissary Department,
Ser g e ant Lefferts and
T ‘- ! ieMnwin" is a statement of
The eatables used, since Monday *
2,930 loaves of bread.
1,000 lbs. of beef.
1,200 lbs. ham.
728 lbs. of cheese.
600 lbs. of butter.
1,200 lbs. of crackers.
5.000 gallons coffee.
The liberal supply of coffee was the means, to
a very large extent, of preventing the
looking for drink in the saloons about the city.
The coffee was provided from Baker's Eating
House in Grand Street, and the Revere House.
Eveiy time the police or soldiers returned
from duty, they were served with rations to
whatever extent they felt they needed.
There are 65 patients on beds at Bellevue Hos
pital (these patients are the fruits of the riot),
and there are 85 slightly wounded. Among tho
patients are several policemen, also Austin Bul
ger, aged 36 years, machinist, 309 East Thirty
fourth street, from said number—gunshot wound
of left arm. Ellen Clyne, aged 28 years, domes
tic, 496 First avenue, from said number—injury
of head. Michael Sullivan,
er, 226 First avenue, from said number—gunshot
wound of breast and left shoulder. Francis
McLarkey, aged 50 years, laborer, 185 West
Forty-first street, from said number —gunshot
wound of left hand.
Sympathy, alike the food of souls and the ter
ror of sore eyes, has fully expressed itself among
the disaffected in the suburbs, whose hearts
throb responsive to the rioters in the Metropolis.
No sooner was the fact of resistance to the con
scription announced, than a fellow feeling was
aroused, and even after the outbreak had de
generated into a carnival of plunder and perse
cution, it did not wholly subside. No fitter ter
ritory exists anywhere for laising the standard
of revolt than in the Twelfth Ward of Brooklyn,
which includes Red Hook and Atlantic Basin.
The first intimations there expressed themselves
on Tuesday against the colored people, who,
thoroughly frightened and unable to protect
themselves from the arousing fury of the Irish
element, made such escape as they could, or
rushed in flocks to the various station-houses.
Even here their tenure of life was by no means
certain, as a large proportion ot the force wero
absent on extraordinary duty in New York. As
they could, therefore, they escaped to the coun
try and are still lurking in the neighboring
woods fearful of returning to Brooklyn. Pink
Row, in Canton street, a negro settlement, is
without a tenant, and other localities are also
Simultaneously with the announcement of
trouble, the Navy Yard was nut on a war footing,
and since that time it has bristled with cannon,
and been in every way ready for a raid from the
rioters. The large number of vessels were
hauled into the stream, and every possible pre
caution taken. From the Marine Barracks and
the North Carolina about 1,000 sailors and ma
rines were sent to New York for active service.
To supply their places over 1,500 citizens enrolled
themselves at the armories in Raymond street,
Henry street, and at Musical Hall on Fulton
street, for special service. These men are still
engaged in drilling nightly, and patrols are out
Notwithstanding all these measures for good
order, on Wednesday night the grain shovellers
of South Brooklyn became so excited as to fire
two large elevators at the Atlantic Basin, which
were soon destroyed, involving a loss of over
The lurid glare of these burning buildings
awoke such of our citizens as had not previously
realized the danger, to a sense of the spirit
around and at work in the midst of the city.
The Mayor and Sheriff of the county issued proc
lamations, the police were strengthened, and a
large number of special policemen sworn in for
duty. During the night of Wednesday a num
ber of negro tenements were visited and some
colored people considerably injured, but no lives
■were lost.
Among the places threatened was Plymouth
elxnroL (liov. 11. W. Booch-or’s), ailtl
since Tuesday last, not less than 300 men have
been in readiness there with Minia rifles to give
them a warm reception. Fortunately for them
selves they did not put in an appearance, and
therefore no lead was put into them.
In the City Hall a reserve force of policemen
were quartered for any emergency, but beyond
a trip t o Atlantic Basin, they were not required.
They however participated in the charge on the
miscreants who attacked the Tribane office, and
were of essential muscular and locust service.
Up to Friday the feeling of the city was of the
most feverish character, and all expected that an
attack on some point would communicate to the
evident feeling of discontent, and bring upon
Brooklyn a repetition of the destruction which
had visited New York. During all the time, only
one arrest was made, and that for boisterous ac
tion, for which the rowdy—. John Tracy by name,
received 20 days in jail.
This section of Brooklyn was fully as wild as
Brookly n proper. In the Fourteenth Ward as
well as tho Seventeenth there are any quantity
of the material from which riots can be easily
manufactured, and at no time during last week
has the feeling been that of safety. The work
men and unemployed congregated in large num
bers and held a meeting on Tuesday evening at
which they were addressed by a Col. Edmund
Taylor who recommended that tho draft be re
sisted, but that before any open measures were
taken the action of Governor Seymour be made
known and his example followed. The next
night a large crowd met at the corner of North
Ninth and Third streets when the question of
conscription was discussed in knots of from
three to fifty, and the ,most bitter feeling of op
position expressed. It was even said that a list
of places to be first destroyed were shown
among which were the office of the Brooklyn
Daily Times. The Post-office, the Wall Hotel,
property of Hon. Wm. Wall, the residence of
Dr. North, Assistant Provost Marshal, and some
four cr five ship-yards where vessels are in prog
ress of building.
Immediately a guard was formed, and Hon.
Wm. Wall gave $5,000 for the necessary equip
ments and muskets. Since then over 500 men
have been formed into companies, and drilling
and night patrolling goes on constantly. The
Goxzxami* ItJtU Wffl’Cl RISO acted
promptly, securing a battalion of more than
1,000 men, who are aimed and ready for any
“.popular tumult.” On Thursday evening, a
young man who has the unenviable notoriety of
being a detected thief, was arrested for attempt
ing to incite riotous proceedings in the 14th
Ward. He was armed, and when taken into cus
tody was endeavoring to prevail on a combusti
ble crowd to aid in the demolition of some negro
habitations in the vicinity. It would have taken
only his vigorous example to have had a crowd
at his back, and once begun, no one could have
told where the affair would have terminated.
Fortunately, he was discovered in time, and on
the succeeding morning dispatched to the Peni
tentiary for six months. His name is Bogers,
and although only 17, hue already served two
terms in the institution where he is now incar
It was?necessary for the police to constantly be
on the alert, and the fact that a large force had
been ordered to New York, did not increase the
feeling of security,, but the feeling was very
strong and determined; men seized muskets
who rarely handled them nreviously, and ball
cartridges and night duty became as familiar as
the matters of ordinary business.
Greenpoint—the Seventeenth. Ward ot the city
of Brooklyn— contains a large proportion of me
chanics engaged on monitors, etc., and it was
for a time feared that a spark of discontent from
.the New York side might kindle them into a
blaze. Particularly was this feared at the Con
tinental Works of Messrs. Bowland, where some
700 men are employed. A vessel was stationed
at the works, and the display of a blue light was
agreed upon as a signal m case of danger. The
week dragged by, however, andnothing occurred.
At Hunter’s Point, just opposite Greenpoint,
there are congregated several hundred laborers,
having little local interest, engaged in the glass
factories, etc., from whom a visit was nightly
expected by the people of Greenpoint. A watch
was kept, but no unwelcome presence appeared.
On Thursday night, however, a policeman shot a
man who was rather suspicious i* his move
ments. He refused to tell why lie was out at two
o’clock in the morning in a dangerous locality,
and while attempting to draw a pistol, was shot
through the leg. His name is Joseph Cozzens,
of Huron street.
Dr. Acheson, of Williamsburgh, had a son
wounded in New York while fighting the rioters.
He belonged to the Seventh Begiment reserve,
and is not much injured.
Major-General Dix immediately after his ar
rival here yesterday afternoon, held a consulta
tion with General Wool and Canby. •
Cornelius Murphy, who rendered such valuable
aid to Captain Putnam’s detachment on Thurs
day, and who was wounded by a shot from a
rioter, has been promoted from a special to a
regular policeman. He belongs to Hose Co. No.
56. He has left the hospital, and is doing well.
The 11th and 13th Regiments N. Y. N. G., now
a battery of the sth U. S. Artillery arrived on
Friday night in the city from Harrisburg.
The37th Regiment N. Y. N. G., Colonel Roome
arrived here last evening. This regiment has
seen service at Sporting Hill skirmish, .where
two officers and three privates were wounded •
and at the bombardment of Carlisle, where one
corporal was killed, one officer and ten privates
wounded, and seven privates paroled who had
been captured by rebel cavalry.
The Eight Regulars now at the Park Barracks
number about seven hundred men. They are
commanded by Captain E. W. Reed. They have
been the Provost Marshall guard of the Potomac.
There are other Regulars and Marines here.
Tho 152nd Regiment New York Volunteers are
quartered in the coloured church* opposite the
Police head quarters. The 69th and two other
regiments were expected to arrive here late last
night or early this morning.
A detachment of the Fourteenth Cavalry under
Lieut.-Col. Cropsey is quartered in tents on the
square on East Twenty-first street between the
Third and Fourth avenues.
The Police protected by the Seventh Regiment
have recover cd three hundred muskets that
were stolen by the rioters at the time of tho at
tack on the Union Steam Works corner of East
Twenty-second street and Second avenue.
(Odds and
An experiment has just been made
on the Seine, at Paris, with an instrument, called a locho
metre, for measuring the speed of vessels. This instru
ment, which is intended to supersede the fog now in use,
is composed of a metal syphon, of which the extremities
are immersed in the water. A small screw is fitted to the
top and to the interior of the instrument, on which the
water acts as soon as the ship or boat moves, by constant
ly entering one end of the syphon and running out at the
other. Some clock work is attached to the screw, the
functions of which are to mark on a dial-plate by hands
the distance in yards performed by the vessel, commenc
ing with one unit, and extending to hundreds of miles.
The experiment was tried on board the steamboat Pa
risicn, which carries passengers between Paris and St.
Cloud. The distance was accurately marked on the dial
plate by the movement of the hands.
The new memorial to Good Prince
Albert—a title which the world accords him—has been
inaugurated at Kensington, in the presence of tiie Queen
and royal family. The form of the memoiial is that of a
temple, with projecting bases at four equal distances, of
sufficient size to carry seated figures of eight feet high.
The entire height of the memorial, exclusive of the un
der work with arches, is forty-two feet; the width across
the angles of the granite, eighteen feet. The statue of the
Oueen. as personifying “ Peace,” was intended originally
to have been the crowning figure, uui ffaSbeeu tsxuiiaugca
for that of the Prince, by express desire of her Majesty.
There has been published a pretty
romance regarding the naming of the gunboat Winona
for the daughter of a New Hampshire Indian chief, loved
and married by a white man, who left her to die of grief
while he went back to busy life, coming back after many
years to die ou Winona's grave. Very pretty ; but the St-
Paul Press knocks all the romance out of it by showing
that Winona means the “first daughter,” in the Indian
tongue, and half the squaws of a tribe arc Winonas. It
seems the name was given in compliment to Minnesota.
This is the way the Golden Era
speaks of the discovery of a tin mine in Missouri: “A
kitchen-furniture mine—material in the raw, of course—
of remarkable richness, has recently been discovered in
the famous land of Pike. This will afford a 1 right smart
chance’ for the introduction of metallic polish, and will do
away with the classic squash-gourd ware of the Joe Bow
ers' pattern.”
The Emperor and Empress had a
visit to the exhibition, of flowers at Fontainebleau. A
new variety of rose, presented by an amateur, re
ceived on this ocasiou the name of “ Puebla.” The flower
which most struck the attention of the august visitors was
the “ Gracilis Bonapartea,” brought from America by
Prince Napoleon.
The Andaman Islands must afford
groat attractions to those disposed to settle down to a sim

which is put on regularly every evening, to protect them
against the bites of mosquitoes, ticks and other tor
A farmer in Ottawa County, Michi
gan, put $205 in greenbacks in a kettle with his dinner,
depositing the kettle in his wagon. An ox took a fancy
to it on account of its greenness, and ate it as salad with
ttrtdhtner. The ftirmcr, guess!ng where the money had
gone, had the purloiner killed, and the Blunder was found
in his stomach.
The late decision of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, upon the Girard case, against the
claim of the heirs, establishes the will in favor of Phila
delphia. They show by their decision that whatever ob
jection might be urged against the manner of administer
ing the bequest, it could not vitiate the gift, which was a
commendable and beneficial one.
The Annual I’ic-nic and Cotillon
Excursion of the Van Cott Association is to come off at
Dudleys Grove, on Tuesday next. A commodious steam
er and barge have been engaged for the occasion. From
the character of the parties who have charge of this af
fair wc have no doubt it will prove a success, and secure
to all a rich day's pleasure.
A handsome marble slab monument
has just been erected in Hucknall Church, Notts, (where
the noble bard himself reposes.) in memory of the only

They have what the papers call an
excellent substitute for tea in Tioga county, Pa., so like
real China that merchants mix it with their imported

Those in the woods at this season
liable to be poisoned by our native ivy, may be glad to
learn a cure for it. Plunge the part affected in hot water
—as hot as can be borne—holding it there some time. The
unpleasant itching and burning sensation will be removed
and two or three applications arc a sure cure.

Alexandra’s Second Drawing-Room.
The Princess of Wales held her second Drawing Room
at St. James's Palace. The Court was not very fully at
tended, but the interest excited among the public was
unusually great, and the park and all the principal tho
roughfares leading to the Palace were thronged with
spectators from an early hour. The Princess of Wales re
ceived an ovation in her progress from Marlborough
House, which her Royal Highness acknowledged with
much grace and feeling.
The presentations of ladies amounted to two hundred
and twenty three, and presentations to her Royal High
ness at this Court are considered as equivalent to presen
tations to her Majesty. 1

Intellectual Capabilities of Wo-
MAK.—We find the following interesting item in the Cleve
land Post “ A writer in a foreign review, in au article
on the tong disputed point whether the mental powers ot
a woman are equal to those of a man, quotes what jhas
been said by controversalists. Women, say the defenders
of the present system of things, have opened no vistas in
the realms of thought; with a few brilliant exceptions they

whatever its original force and vigor. In both these ar
guments there is a certain degree of plausibility. Per

Mysteries of the Kitchen.—A west
ern editor descanting upon this important subject, intro
duces this extract from a work upon “ Courtship and Mar
riage;” “ I know that I run no small risk of being ac
cused of Spartan barbarism when I assert that a knowl
edge of the ars culinaria should form a part of every young
lady's education. Half a century hath hardly elaps. d
since the cook-shop was as regularly visited, even by the
daughters of the higher class of gentry, as the music
academy—and I am free to assert that the march of re
finement in this instance hath been rather retogradish and
crab-like. No female can be injured, and many may Ims
essentially benefited by the study. An officer's'wife? for
instance, who hath accompanied her husband to the scene
of war, may greatly add to their mutual comfort in the
absence of domestics. In a mercantile community, how
many a man by a reverse of fortune is compelled, as an
emigrant, to seek his fortune in some new and unpeopled
country, and who will assert that his wife would be the
worse of being able to dress the wild fowl or venison
which her husband's rifle had supplied ? In the back
woods of Canada a saucepan is worth a dozen pianosand
a whole legion of guitars ” Modern young ladies read
these or similar excellent hints time and again, yet turn
up their pretty noses at them, as “ behind the age.” How
many husbands, who while suitors “for the maiden hand
they scarcely dared to kiss,’’ had no thought but for the
angelic, have sincerely wished alter the wooed was won,
she would lend an attentive ear to these facts. But madam
has been told so often of her seraphic qualities; she has no
mind to associate them with anything so intensely sublu
nary as the kitchen.
Ladies’ Broad Co-lars.—“ Jenny
June” says that the shape and size of .collars seem
to be not at all decided this season. In place of the
narrow standing or turn down collar, an effort is being
made to revive the immensely wide and unbecoming col
lars of a former period, and in Paris it is quite successful.
For dinner dress they are made of old guipure, which is
now successfully imitated by hand, but for morning wear
they are made of fine linen, worked In the deep corners
with black, and edged with wide Valenciennes lace. No
thing can be conceived more unbecoming than this ex
panse of white linen. It is more trying to the complexion
than tne most injurious color, and would make Hebe her
self look aged and ghastly. We hope sincerely that it will
be a long time before the pretty ruches and small colors,
with their delicate embroidery, are set aside for. these
frightful which have only their present
novelty to recommend them.
A New Way of Popping the Ques
tion.—An exchange testifies to having been a witness tq
the following amusing incident: Scene—Broad wav, cor
ner of Ann street. Time-2:30 P. M. “Sally,” said a
green youth, in a venerable white Irat and gray pants,
through which his legs projected half a foot, “ Sally, be
fore you get into this ’.ere Museum, to see the enchanted
horse, I want to ask you something.” “ Well, Ichabod
what is it?” “ Why, you see this ’ere business is gwiue to
cost a hull quarter of a dollar apiece, and 1 can’t afford to
spend so much tor nothin’. Now, ef you’ll sav you'll have
me, darned if I don't pay the hull oif’t mvseif.” “I will ”
Probably the above may suggest an idea to Young Amer
ica, who is wont to indulge so liberally in bouquets and
opera tickets, in the end to find Ills rival preferred io him
self by the fickle fair one ot his o'er f ond heart.
A Warning to Mothers.—A lady
wjiohad boasted highly at a dinner party of the good
manners of her little darling, addressed him thus :
“Charlie, my dear, won't you have some beans?”
“No,” was the ill mannered reply of the petulant
“No!” exclaimed the astonished mother, “No what?”
“No beans,” said the child.
Hoops.—Sonfe adventurous mascu
line, identity unknown, recently' asserted to a party of
congenial spirits that “ Woman has found her true ‘ sphere’
at last; it is about twenty-seven feet round, made of
A. K. J.—“ An old subscriber de
sires to know whether a slave owner in the Southern
states was or was not entitled to a vote in the House of
Representatives for each five slaves he owned ? Decide,
as there is a bet made upon it ” It is very' evident that
the disputants in this case, as hundreds of thousands are
in many other questions, lamentably ignorant cf the fun
damental law of the land. If there was a more general
knowledge of the Constitution of the United Scatesamong
the people, demagogues would not have the opportunity
of inciting the unreflecting or ignorant among them
to riot, as they have done recently. The Consti
tution of the Republic declares: “Clause 3, Represen
tatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the
several staffs which may be included within this Union,
according to their respective numbers, which shall be
determined by adding to the whole number oi free per
sons, including those bound to survive for a term of years,
and excluding Indians not taxed three fifths of aU'other
persons.” Tnis clause simply gives to the slave states the
privilege ot counting every five slaves equal to three
white men In their enumeration of representative popu
lation- If this concession baa not been made to the south
over the north, their representation in the House of Rep
resentatives, compared with that of tlie free states, would
have been comparatively Insignificant. This clause does
not give permission to a representative from a slave state
a vote for each five slaves counted.
Interest.—“ I am a deserter from the
rebel army. Am I liable to the Conscription Law? If I
am dratted what course must I pursue to get out of it?”
You are certainly liable'to the draft. We sunpose, on
proper representation being made to the Provost-Marshal
General, he will excuse you because of the peril in which
you would be placed in consequence of your “detention
from the rebel army.”
A Volunteer's Wife. — Wo suggest
that you call on the Alderman of the Ward in which you

for you the instrument which the physician say’s is neces

Voracity of Rats.—The Abeille Gau
chaise records the following instance of the vo- p
racity of rats, which it declares has just occurred
at a farm near- Yvetot (Seine-Inferieure): The C
proprietor of the farm, M. Panchout, had a pig
so exceedingly fat that it could scarcely move
and was nearly always asleep. Three nights
since ho was awakened by hearing the squeals of
the animal, and on going to the sty found that a 11
number of rats had attacked it and eaten their
way into its fat four inches. The pig was so
much injured that it was found necessary to kill
it immediately. The Journal de Douen, after
giving the above account, mentions a circum
stance which occurred to a gentleman of that
town not long since : On returning from a resi- h
dcnce in the tropics ho wished to bring back a w
serpent about six feet long. Hr, accorkingly put g,
it iu a large box, and along with it a number' of ri
live rats for it to kill and eat when so disposed. 'S
On opening the box, however, he found that n
during the passage the rats had not only eaterr ' 1
all the food enclosed for them, but had also de
voured the serpent itself.”

A True Wife.—Someone indulging |
in a homily upon matrimony, remarks: “.With a true c
wife a husband’s faults should be sacred. A woman for U
gets what is due to herself when she condescends to that
refuge of weakness—a female con/idanfe. A wife’s bosom I
should be the tomb of her husband’s failings, and his h
character far more valuable in her estimation than his
life. If this be not the case, she pollutes her marriage
vow.” We may add, that, about two-thirds of the diffi
culties and heart-burnings of wedded life arise from a
disregard of these truths Confid-int's are ycry apt to make . F
Irreparable mischief. c
:• From the persons who found and buried the
, members of the Dustin family, whose murder we
a chronicled in Friday’s Press, we learn some par
i- tieulars of the scone, which shows the barbarities
of last Summer are being re-enacted. The fam
ily were traveling in an open lumber box-wtfgon,
i and were attacked on Monday, the 29th ult? It
y was not until the Wednesday following that they
were found, and the sight of their decomposed
l- and mangled bodies was trulv awful. Amos
e Dustin, the father, was sitting in the front part
of the wagon, dead, with an arrow sticking in his
body, and a deep wound in his breast, probably
r made by a tomahawk or war-club. His left hand
had been cut off and carried away by the Indians.
Beneath his seat crouched a little child of six
years, who had concealed herself there when the
- attack was made. The life-blood of her father
, had streamed down, covering her face and
• clothes, and her shoes were literally filled with
the blood that had trickled from the mangled
’. body. She says that the Indians saw her, and
looked quite sharply at her, but did not offer
’ violence. It is probable that she is mistaken
about this, as she is the only member of the fam-
• ily uninjured, and, from the displays we have
had of savage ferocity, we should not infer that
they would knowingly spare a victim iu their
power. In another part of the wagon lav the
, corpse of Mrs. Dustin, the grandmother of the
children. An arrow was in her body, also, and
her head was hanging over the side of the wag
on, her long hair dishevelled and streaming in
the air, filled with the clotted blood that had
flowed from her wounds. The mother and a
child twelve years of age were in the wagon, still
alive, but so badly wounded that no hopes are
entertained of their recovery. For two days they
had lain and suffered beside the dead bodies of
their friends, unable to procure sustenance or
assistance. Indian camp-fires were seen in sev
eral places in Hennepin county, last week, and
•n Friday a prrty of seven Indians was discov
ered at Madison Lake, eight miles from Minnea
polis. They were first seen by a farmer and his
son, and as soon as they saw they were discov
, ered, they dropped in the brush and concealed,
i themselves. The farmer fled, and, collecting
twelve or fifteen of his neighbors, they returned
to the place where the Indians had been seen,
and followed the trail, which led around the lake,
until within six miles of Minneapolis, where, los-
■ ing the trail, search was abandoned. We have
, not learned whether it was afterward resumed.
Previous to these late murders and discoveries,
Adj’t-Gen. Mahnros had sent out Gen. Munch,
who started on the 15th of May, to inspect the
frontier counties and ascertain their wants. As
the result of his tour, the militia companies were
aimed and supplied with ammunition, in the
, western part of Faribault county, in the whole of
i Blue Earth, in the western township of Nicollet,
- in the whole of Brown, in part of Sibley, in the
, whole of McLeod, in the westerm company dis
i tricts of Carver and Wright, in the whole of
Meeker, in nearly all of Stearns, and in the town
of Sauk Rapids, in Benton countyforming a
I like of defences from Sauk Rapids to the lowa
line. Anns for companies in these localities
■ were issued previous to these late disturbances,
s though a portion had not reached then- destina
< tion at that time. In order that the people
; might be amply protected from savage foes, the
; State authorities did not wait for the companies
to be mustered and uniformed, as required by
• law, and the wisdom of this course is now mani
fest. An order from Adj’t-Gen. Mahnros will be
found elsewhere in our columns this morning,
calling for volunteer scouts to enlist for sixty
days, unless sooner discharged. They are de-
? signed to scour the Big Woods from Sauk Centre
■ to the northern line of Sibley county. It is pro
i posed to have one captain to every forty or sixty
> men, wlio will divide then- force into squads of
not less than five. Each man is to arm. equip
. and subsist himself, and will receive for compen-
■ sation one dollar and fifty cents a day. In addi
: tion to this, the Adjutant-General offers a reward
( of §25 for each scalp ot' a male Sioux delivered at
his office. This order is dated on the Ith inst.,
and the bounty was claimed in one instance yes
terday. It seems that on the 4th a citizen was
out hunting, about twelve miles beyond Hutehin
' son, and discovered three Indians. He succeeded
in killing one and making his escape, though not
| without a severe wound from the gun of a red
skin. When the news reached Glencoe, a party
of soldiers went out and secured the scalp. Mr.
. Bates, the Sheriff of McLeod comity, brought the
trophy to the city yesterday, and, ascertaining
'■ that a bounty was ottered, handed ovey the prize
and obtained the money St. Paul. Press,

■ It is a vulgar notion, that some names are ne
cessarily noble and romantic, while others are ne
cessarily mean and base. Names are beautiful
only in their associations. Worth, valor, genius,
learning have converted syllables into poems,
and words into histories. Look the British Peer
age through, and in that bright fist there is, per
haps, not one which does not seem to the eye
and the imagination picturesque. Yet in their
: mout i ;o .a m scnxud
or spelling that could be considered glorious.
Howard is a Hogward; Seymour is a tailor;
, Leicester is a weaver ; Percy is a gross fellow j
Butler is a cellar-man; Stewart is a domestic i
servant. Vane, Vere, Hyde and Pole, sound the ’
reverse of heroic. . Hay is not intrinsically nobler i
, than straw. How is it, then, that Hay has come ;
to represent the pink of aristocracy. ‘Straw, the i
lowest of vulgar Cheats ? Simply by association. |
Would the complainants like tohave been origin
ally called Blunt, Craven, or Gore? There is
nothing in Grey more attracting than Brown, as
to either sound or letters ; indeed Greyisashade
I or so lees vigorous than its rival Brown. Would
any one like to have been known as Roper or
Touchet if these family names had never been
immortalized by worthy deeds? We do not
know that Gimlet has a more familiar look than
Bacon, Petty, Peel and Pitt. Yet these have be
come by association some of the most reverential
and gracious of English nnmes. Milton, Sack
ville, and Shelley are not necessarily aristocratic
and poetical. Had they not been glorified by
genius and by rank, they would perhaps have
been included in Mr. Buggey’s list. Churchill,
Fuller, Kidd, Quarles, Donne, Bowles, Savage,
Quincy and Dickens, now household words, borne
by some of the choicest of our national poets and
humorists, would certainly have been so. Not i
much better as to sound are Cowper. Lamb and
-Bulwer. People used to and joke at Cecil.
Talbot and Taimarsh would be considered vul
gar. Every one considers Raleigh a very roman
tic name, but in Sir Walter’s time it was open to
very bad puns. The same with Drake.
Coke, too, would be thought low had it never |
been illuminated by the author of the“lusti- I
tutes,” and the owner of Hoikham. In the ab- I
sence of Sir Christopher, would Mr. Tigg like to I
have been called "Wren ? Had there been no I
erudite giant of that nanip, would not Cheeke :
have been voted intolerable ? In truth, scarcely I
anythijw depends on the letter, everything on th? '
connection of ideas. Solomon was "the wisest of
men, and his name is one of the noblest in liter
ature ; yet no pnident father, unless he were a
Jew, would give it to his child, because in the
present generation it happens to be ludicrously
associated with old clothes. In its Saracenic
form of Solyman it would still be considered
magnificent. A cun-ent jest Will destroy the pic
turesque beauty of most famous names: a Ilyin"
Pompev would be set down as a ntgger, a liviuS
Coesar treated as a dog. Cymon is a name which
would attract the female eye, and perhaps even
reconcile it to the adjunct Smyth. Mrs. Cymon
Smyth would have an air upon a card. But the
fine feminine instinct would recoil from Simon.
And why the difference ? Is it not because Cy
mon is associated with Iphigenia, and Simon with
the simpleton—who met a pieman coming from
a fair ? One of the objectionable names, to re
move which from the face of the earth all gods
and men are called to aid, is Vilain. Yet the
Hogwards and Stywards were all villains; and
one of the proudest houses of Europe, that of
Count Vilain the Fourteenth, rejoiced in the ob
noxious name Athenceum.
