He ad mitted that he was guilty of purjury, for gery, and fraud : having forged deeds of gift and a will by which he had ob tained possession of the enormous estate of his late father, and raised £30u,000 ; upon them, all of which he had exhaust ed. Mr. lloupell voluntarily returned to England and made these confessions. He was committed for trial. The case excited great interest. The London Times, commenting on the case, says; “Mr. William lloupell went to Mug geridg, gave him £5, purporting to come from Mrs. lloupell for mourning, and asked for a receipt. The receipt sup plied him with a specimen of Muggera dge’s signifure, and this, with some dffficulty, he succeeded in imitating. ‘I wrote my father’s signiturc with my ownppean —a short quill pen —and also that of Muggerdige. My own I wrote with ray gold pen, and as lightly as I could, to make the contrast as strong as possible with the others’. Paul Fcr roll docs not relate more circumstanti ally how he killed his wife, or why. One docs some times find such confessions in the last chapter of a novel, when the actor is dead, and his deeds are des cribed by himself in a memoir conveni ently brought to light, but yvc think were never uttered before in a witness box by ‘a gentlemanly looking man,’ speaking‘in a tone serious and grave, and as though quite sensible of the effect and result of what he was saying.’” The Toothache. —“My dear friend,” said H , I can cure your toothache in ten minutes.” “How? How?” I inquired. Do it in pity.” “Instantly,” said he. “Have you any alum?” “Yes.” “Bring it, with some common salt.” They were produced. My friend pulverized them, and mixed them in equal quantities, then wet a small piece of cotton, causing the mixed powders | to adhere, and placed it in my hollow*; tooth. “There,” said he, “if that does not cure you, I will forfeit my head. \ou may tell this to every one and publish | it everywhere. The remedy is infal-l hble. . . It was as he predicted. On intro- ■ duetion of the mixed alum and salt, I experienced a sensation of coldness, w ? hich gradually subsided and with it the alum and salt. It cured the tor ments of the toothache. Ex. Just before Gen. Stevens’ death, his son and Aid, Hazard, on receiving a wound, exclaimed, “Father, lam wounded 1” Gen. Stevens replied, “Well, son, I have no time to take care of you now, and turning to a soldier he said, “Corporal, see to my boy.” In another moment the brave father was himself a corpse. Fortune’s wings are made of :ime’s features, which stay not whilst one may measure them. Retribution. The correspondent of the Boston Journal writes from Greeneastle (Pa.) on the IGth; You remember that John Brown had an accomplice by the name of Cook, who was captured among the Pennsylvania mountains and delivered over to Gover nor Wise, and suffered death. The man who arrested him was Fitz Hugh Miller, of Chambersburg, Yesterday I saw seventy-four rebel prisoners march ed into that town, guarded by United States troops. At the head of the party marched a man with downcast eye, sun burned, dusty, dressed in a suit of gray, with a feather in his hut—the same Fitz Hugh Miller, captain in the rebel army. The Dutch blood of the citizens, usually as calm and steady in its flow as the rivers of their Father-land, came up with a rush. “Hang him ! Down with the traitor ! Kill him !” mingled with words not recommended by the moral law, were uttered. The excitement be came wild. Men, women and children pushed to obtain a view of the fellow — to obtain possession of him. The guards quickly put down the demonstration by charging bayonets: that alone saved the fellow from dang ling by the neck from one of the trees in the square. Miller evidently thought that the hour of retribution had come. He cowed before the demonstration, and showed himself an arrogant coward. I would not give two cents for his chance of continuing this life if released to-night and left to the mercies of the populace. A great change has taken place in the ft “ 1 opinions of men in this section. I hey have had a big scare, have felt a little of secession, of slavery, have lost a few hundred horses, passed sleepless nights, through fear been forced to flee. They are waking to the realities of war, and are ready to put down secession and slavery also, without caring much about the manner of doing it. The public pulse beats not as it did in the days of John Brown. The Revenue Stamp Act. —This act is now in force.—Section 04 providing for the use of stamps on all notes for all sums over 820, and on all deeds, mortgages, bonds, contracts, &c., was to have gone into effect on the Ist of October. But by a subsequent act, approved J vdy 14th, the whole act, except as to the appointment of collectors, was made to take effect on the first of September. So the whole act is now in full force. All instruments in writ ing, as enumerated partly above, to be le gal, must have attached the proper stamps provided for the purpose. To prevent any gi’cat confusion growing out of an entire change in the system < 1 doing bus iness, and incidental loss to innocent per sons, the act provides that such instru ments made after the Ist of September and before January next, shall not bo absolutely void for want of such stamps, or for any failure to put thereon stamps at the date of executing such papers, but that the same shall not be admitted as evidence in any court untill tho party claiming under the same shall prove pay ment for such stamps, and pay an addi tional sum of 85,00 to the United States collector for each unstamped instrument. It Pays to take the Papers.—A capital story is told us of an old farmer in the northern part of tho country, who had been “saving up” to take up a mort gage of 82,000 held by a man near the seashore. The farmer had saved up all the money in gold, fearing to trust the banks in these war times. Week before last he lugged down his gold and paid it over, when the following colloquy was held : ‘■Why you don't mean to give me 82- GOO in gold, do you?” said the lender. “Yes, certainly,” said the farmer. “I was afraid of the pesky banks, so I vc been saving up the money, in yellow boys, for you this long time. “All right,” responded the lender, only I thought you didn't take the pa pers, that’s all.” “Take the papers! No, sir, net I. They have gone-on so since the war s been agoing that I won t have one of th e (jJ Hsh things about. But tho money is all right, isn't it?” i Jonah not a Tobacco-Cue wep..—A preacher, whose text led him to speak of the prophet Jonah, remarked incident ally ; “I am of the opinion that Jonah was an old man, neither smoking nor chewing, from the fact the fish retained him so long in his stomach. If the fish had swallowed the house we are worship in" in, he would, no doubt, have puked himself to death.” jggy-The first draft in this country since the war of 1812 took place in Hart ford. Conn, on Wednesday last. One of the selectmen of the city, with a hand kerchief over his eyes, drew from the box the names of two hundred men who are to serve in the army for nine months. One Alderman and one policeman were among the conscripts. stop a “Raid.”—Be arrayed your self." The Sea a Preserver. And besides this mechanical process of drainage, by which the decay of the contents is continually washed from the lands and swept into the caverns of the deep, there is another important proc ess by which the sea itself, in its own domain, is perpetually working for the health of the world. It is set to purify the atmosphere; and so the winds, whose wings are heavy and whose breath is sick with the malaria of the lands over which they blow, are sent out to range over those mighty pastures of the deep, to plunge and play with its rolling billows, and dip their pinions over and over in is healing waters. There they rest when tiiey are weary, cradled into sleep on that vast swinging couch of the ocean. There they rouse themselves when they are refreshed, and, lifting its waves upon their shoulders, they dash it into spray with their hands, and hurl it backwards and forwards through a thousand leagues of sky, untill their w’hole substance being drenched, and bathed, and washed and winnowed, and sifted through and through by this glorious baptism, they fill their mighty lungs once more with the sweet breath of the ocean, and strik ing their wfings for the shore, go breath ing health and vigor along all the faint ing hosts that wait for them in mountain and forest and valley and plain, till the whole drooping continent lifts up its re joicing face and mingles its laughter with the sea that has waked from its fevered sleep and poured such tides of returning life through all its shrivelled arteries. — liev. Leonard Swain. IK D. A Good Word for a Little Fel low. —A Frenchman was being terribly beaten by a brawny sailor, who bold bis victim to the earth while he severely thrashed him. The unfortunate fellow kept yelling out with all his might, “Hurrah! I say, hurrah!” but a man who was passing saw his predicament, and told him to cry “enough.” “Enough! enough!” shouted the he flogged foreign- by gar zafc is do word I try to think of dis several minutes gone.” The sail or let him get up, when the Frenchmen rubbed his hands with delight, and cried, “Enough! by gar, ’tis very mooch good word for a little fellow to remember.” How to Tell. —Away down East a wealthy old gentleman who was especi ally fond of a glass of brandy had es tablished a bank, and liking his own face better than any one’s else, had the frankness to confess it by placing it on both cuds of his bank bills. One eve ning a bill of this description was offer ed at the village hotel, and was thought to be counterfeit. “Put a glass of bran dy to the pictur,” interposed a wag, “and if his mouth opens you may bo shure it is one of old Vinter’s.” A WmrrKU in.— A clergyman in u village not one hundred miles from Dum fermline has been much annoyed, for sometime past, by a number of his con gregation falling asleep during the ser mon. The Reverend gentlemen had tried several times to reason with his sleepy hearers, but all to no purpose. So one Sabbath he stopped in the middle of his discourse and said, “If I had a coach- whip, I think I could use it with advantage on some of those near me.” Nobody. —One of the most telling descriptions of “forlornity” we have hoard was that of a boy who asked a Boston police officer for shelter ia the station house: “Sec, Cap’n, first, my father died, and my mother married again, and then my mother died, and my father married again, an’ somehow or other I don’t sc?m to have no parents at all, nor no home, nor no noth’n ! ” A Dutchman was relating that he had wonderfully escaped the danger of being drowned at a time when thir teen of bis companions had perished by the upseting of a boat in which they were seated. “And how,” he was asked, “did you escape the fate of your com panions?” “Why,” he replied, “I was in another boat!” jjttrgr-Thc amount of treasure lost by the burning of the steamer Golden Gate was of which $273,000 was for England. The ship was valued at $250,000, and was not insured. The mails, containing 38 bags of newspapers, 13,087 letters, of which 132 were regis tered, or valuable, were also a total loss. fijay-A native of Bcyrout, who had seen in the streets of that city, two New England ladies, attired in accordance with the fashion prevailing here, report ed to his friends that the strangers, “wore umbrellas under their clothes.” young doctor in anew settle ment, on being asked to contribute tow ards inclosing and ornamenting the vil lage cemetry, very cooly replied that if he filled it he thought he should do his part.
