After a long search, a gendarme noticed some freshly picked chicken bones in a ditch. Presently an artificial hedge was detected, so as to conceal the entrance of a cavern. The hedge overthrown, a stentorian voice was heard. " Fate lar go!" it cried "Stand back!" "Sur render, or you are dead," .retorted the lieutenant. "Save this woman I" It was Bianchi, who wanted to save Gene roRS, probably intendibg afterwards to defend himself desperately. But De An gelis left him no time. No sooner had the woman passed out than he rushed in with his men, and seized the bandit be fore be could defend himself. Seeiag escape impossible, Bianchi dashed hit revolver to tbe ground and resigned him self to bis fate. Tbe cave was spacious within; a lamp was burning before an image of the Madonna. Generosa's prayer book was there, the places marked with bills given for ransom. The bri gand was provided with abundant am munition, a double barreled gun and a revolver. In a corner was a bed of blankets and a good store of wine, cheese, bread and sausage ; also a little pastry, supplied by the manutengolo of Colosi mo's house. On Bianchi were fousd a gold hunting watch and a considerable sum in gold and silver coin. On part ing from his mistress, he-threw himself into her arms and kisied ber. Thence forward he did not utter a word, his eyes lost all their expression and assumed a fflassy look. Thia was tbe end of Pietro Bianchi, afier he had for seven years stained tbe district of Kiastro with blood. A Good One. Louis Gsylord Clark, tbe correspon dent of the New York Sunday Mercury, relates the following good story of one of the Harper Brothers, the celebrated pub lishers. of New York. James Harper, at that time, was Mayor: , ! Some yews ago. wben the l"."' nene'e excitement was at iU bight, and the Maine liquor law was tha social ques tion of the day, I called with Oorno W, Kendall, of the Nw Orleans iVy.'H. at theoflica oC the Harpers, then in Cliff street. Kendall a runuinu his new book on Mexico through their presses at the time, and having benn acqaaiuWd with, the broltars previously, was, of course, on the most intimate terms with all of them. , , James, the Mayor, was at that tima a leading apostle in tha tcmperaoca cause, and used occasionally to rally Kendall opon what he thought to be aa undue bibulous propensity. " Your face looks rather reJJuh this mommc, George, I'm ail-aid you ind!ze." Which Ken dall certiij- fjid, but alwsys in modern lion ; never to auf ;r- " After sitting a few moiweiiU, 'ieorge said to the younger brother; ' t'latca...-. wbrd Is U;e Mayor r I want to see him.

"Come jn," -was the answer of the Mayor.-.., Kendall opened tbe door slowly, aa if In hesitation, glanced askance at the eight or ten old ladies, winked knowingly to tbe Mayor, and then said with an in imitable maudlin Jemmy Twitcher air. "Ji-i-m, let's . go and get another drink!" i It is not often that any one can fluster James Harper; but you better believe he was flustered on this occasion. He looked .horror-stricken at the 'very idea, as he returnad tbe astoniahed gaze of tbe old ladiei. ' " Another drink I "as if they bad already had one together, early as it was in the morning ! , Last summer I saw Kendall on his re turn from Europe.

Sing-song- Preaching and Spitting. , From tha Jacktoa Methodist. Mr. Ehitob; We mean no offense to any, but only wish to express1 our dis approval of this blending of two separate and distinct exercises, and the conse quent jumbling them up so as to destroy tbe harmony and effect of both. You have, no doubt, listened to tbe kind of preaching alluded to, and are, therefore, prepared to pass upon the merits of the case. Do you approve of the moduiop erandil or do you not think that either wonld be better without the other that is, one at a time, omitting the. spitting altogether? Why, sir, while listening to both at once, you cannot comprehend either, v At least this is our experience in regard to the matter and we have had a pretty extensive one, too, and not ao distant ia time, either, as to render our impressions dreamy or indistinct Only a short time aiaoe, we attended an ex hibition of this sort, that is, where the three, singing or whining, preaching and spitting, were most t'n-harraonioBBly blended.

EAUtiEST CITY CIRCEEATIOS. Whig, of yesterday, eomes out with some gpeuitio charge against Cob John Bax ter. Brownlow say of that gentleman : " He was once a candidate for tbe rebel Congress in this District, and was shame fully defeated by a brother rebel" Now, if our info:mation .i correct (and w challenge Brownlow to deny it), Col John Baxter was a candidate for the rebel Congress, and .we charge further that Col. Baxter was a candidate at the tarnett lolicitalion, and by the adrict of William O. Jtrotrntote, ko, at that time, pledged himteff to tupport tht Southern Confederacy at aa early an opportunity as he could do to without disaraeina himself in the eueiofboth n.trtifi and we nharce. further, that William G. Brownlow, in two issues of September, 1861, did take grounds to support tha Southern Confederacy, and had.it not have been for the coldness shown Brownlow by the rebels, and the earnest pleadings of Judge Trigg and Col. John William to prevent him join in tha rebel caase. Brownlow would have done as be contemplated at that time, and joined the ooumern toniea. raev. These are tbines that lime and again have been represented to us a true and undeniable. The facts are beyond our knowledge, but our authority we believe reliable, and we believe all these charges will be sustained. Citizens of East Ten nessee, is not this man Brownlow a choice spirit to call Emerson Etheridge a rebel candidate for Governor ? Was there ever such inconsistency known to mortal man? We think there are some glass houses to be broken ere long. Anox villi Commercial, 'Id inst, . 1: ' The Iron Heel. ' : " ' If there is one Americas -citizen who can read the letter of General Pope to Governor Jenkins, of Georgia, ot Gen Sickles to General Clitz, and the warn ing of General Schofield to the Richmond Timet, and yet not feel his blood boil in every artery, be is more to be pitied than any citizen of the prostrate, helpless South. 11 is more aegrauea to oe in sen Bible than to snffer. -'Despotism has its logics as well as liberty. : Pope, Sickles and Schofield make no false steps in theirs. It is not inconsistent with the military despotism established by tbe Reconstruction act of the late Coneress it is in perfect accord ance with that DartiEan, vindictive, and law defying enactment that General Pone uses the " iron heel" to convince tbe Governor of Georgia that he may not await a decision of the supreme Court of the United States in a pending litiga tion before advising his people what their duties are on tbe gravest of all questions that can concern them ; it is quite in ao cordance. too. witb that military des potism established by Rump law that General Sickles shonld with his "iron heel" desecrate tbe American flag, the sv mbol of our freedom and national pride, by making it a Gesler's cap for every Charleston fireman to salute, will they, will they; it is the natural consequence of that particular act of Congress also, destined never to cease to be infamous in our annals, that General Schofield should turn his "iron heel" on the printing presses of Richmond, a free city of Jree. men, in areeotate orare government ot thirty millions ot jreemen. Aew Xorle World. . , Marriage of aa Indian Chief to a White i:.. v ; . . Woman. -From tha SL Paul Pioneer. Hole in the Day, the celebrated Indian chief, has taken a Hew wife, thiB timo varying the programme by selecting a white woman as his mate. Mr. and Airs. Hole-in the Day are at present stopping at tbe Merchants Jiotel Mrs. H.. we understand, was a domes tic employed in tbe laundry department at the hotel in Washington, where Hole- in-the-Dsy and bis suite were putting np during tbe recent treaty conference. His Chippewa Highness saw tbe young lady in Question, wbo was comely in person, and bethought himself she would make a fine accession to his barem. bo be pro- nosed, and without much ado or formal ity was married after the manner of Christians. Mrs. Uole-in-the-Day is a young lady of modest and intelligent appearance. Her royal husband, we understand, does not design to take ber to Crow Wing, to his barem ot ban a dozen or mere Indian wives. That would not be very pleasant for the last Mrs. H. He designs living at St Cloud, in tbe style and manner of " white folks. He is abundantly nil to do this, as he is a man of great wealth having a large income as annuities from Government, and a- large 'farm well stocked with horses, cows, etc.'besideshis reservation of a mile sauare at Crow Wing.
