A few veari aao there wai an orsanigt 10 the prand Temple of the Mormon!, at Salt Lake Cut, whom, ai be i atill ariig, we will call Fred DeStael. ' Young as ha wai, haing yet scarcely twenty-three, he wai justly accounted one of the most talented and skillful musicians in this country or any other, for the matter of that. Especially did be excel at an or ganist. Halting briefly in the "City of the Saints," on an oy.rland journey from San Francisco to New York, he was attracted by the great wealth of the Mor mon Church and the grandeur of their new place of worship the magnificent Temple which had cost them to many years of hard labor. Being young and romantic, these and other peculiarities took a powerful hold on his mind, so that the promise of a princely salary for his services induced him to tarry still, and become one of tbem a new-fledged Saint. DeStael was as attractive in person as he was talented, and very soon became a favorite among the " chosen." As earn est of the sincerity of his conversion, he married two wives, both daughters of Eiders is high st&sdicg ia the church, and sufficiently charming te attract just such a romantic young man. Meantime, the main wing of the grand temple was completed, and it was decided to furnish it with a great organ, that should be in keeping with the edifice itself. Sixteen thousand dollars was voted and subscribed for this purpose. Two noted artisans were engaged in the an cient city of Munich to undertake the construction of the great instrument, after the pattern of one built by them ia a church in their own city. ' Every arrangement was made satis factorily, and the fands so liberally sob scribed were paid in with equal prompt ness. This money, as fast as collected, went into the hands of yoong DeStael, who had the sole direction and manage ment of the affair. Bat, alas I "how uncertain is the white man !" The highly-favored organist, abont this time, went on visit of a few days to a neigh boring town, and forgot to return, di recting his horse's head toward the States instead. It was also discovered that five or six thousand dollars of the organ fnnd in his possession had accom panied him on this sodden and unex pected leave of absence. Very ferocions were the " saints " in consequence of this defalcation. A party of mounted men, well armed, were at once despatched in pursuit of the fugi tive, and it certainly did seem impossi ble that be should escape them, ia cross ing the thirteen hundred miles of wilder ness and desert that intervened between them and oiviliration. At the same lime these events were transpiring beyond the great mountains, a party of thirteen of as were hunting buffalo on the "Old California Road," ia the then Territory of Dakota. The Cheyenne Indians were in a state of more determined hoaiilily than usual that season, and for better protection we kept under the wing of Colonel Cole's command, which was marcbinf aeainst the sense", noder the leadership of General Connor. These troops, waiting for supplies, were encamped on the back of the North Platte, almost under the walls of Fort Williams. Oar little party had their tenu pitched on the high ground, less than a quarter of a mile away. While tarrying here, enlivsning the time by occasional scouts across the prairie ia pursuit of buffaloes, one after noon a stranger rods into eep trom the west, accompanied by the notorious THE FOLLOWING CASE GOODS NOW BEING OPENED ! NEW SHADES; FOR SAMPLE PIECES WELLS & COLL, No. 267 Main hunter, Bill Topley, or "Old Mountain Top," as be was called by the frontiers men. This stranger was Fred DeStael. Quite fortunately for himself, ho came first into our camp, for amoog the of ficers of the military command he would not have been so readily assisted. As it was, however, he gave an aeoonnt of his adventurous escape from persecution, which moved the boys to do anything in their power to aid him. They were far west man, most of them, and had little love for the Mot moo sect. DeStael was compelled to tarry through the remainder of that day and the com ing night, in order to increase his stock of provision, and allow his horse to re cruit his strength. 1. He was kept out of sight, secreted in one ot onr small tents, and his wants were well supplied. But the arrival of the two men had been ob served by some of the soldiers ia camp, and about eight o clock ia the evening Colonel Cole sent down an adjutant to question them concerning the indications of Indians along the line to westward. DeStael was alarmed. He was de termined to avoid the military iom- mander, if possible, knowing that, i a all probability, he wonld be detained, in case hie situation was snspected. But he was equal to the emergency, a and succeeded in so working on the mind of the Lien- tenant that the latter was induced to sec ond the plan by which DeStael hoped to escape obsecration. 1 : : . 1 Bill Topley, the hunter, was prevailed upon, by the offer of a liberal reward, to mount his pony and ride on that same night to Brice's Rancbe, thirteen miles below. The Adjutant, no doubt moved by the same inducements, returned to the quarters of the commander and reported that the two trappers, as ha styled them, had set out for Fort Laramie several hours earlier iu the evening. At aoent the same time a pursuing party of Mormons, accompanied by four Arapahoe Indians, arrived at toe Fort. Finding themselves go close npon the heels of the fugitive, they had pressed forward with all possible speed; in ad vance of the main party, hoping to over take him at the Fort. Finding themselves disappointed in this expectation, however, they camped there for the night, and before the light of day appeared, were once more on the road toward Brice's Ranche. The Adju tant managed to communicate to DeStael intelligence of these events, and thus put him on his gusrd. ; It seemed now like escape was impos sible. The young man dared not renew bis journey, and to remain there was scarcely less perilous. - But money in this instance, as in many another, proved all powerful. DeStael remained in our little tent until the following night when be was removed to the safer establish ment of the brigade sntler, where he tarried in security for four days. At the expiration of that time, under cover of darkness and accompanied by an ex perienced guide, be once more set out for the States, and in dne time arrived in safety at Omaha, having successfully traded the vigilant pursuit ot the avenging- "Saints-" But the ssddest part of our story re mains to be told. DeStael, while living in the Mormon capital, had won the affections of a beautiful and accomplished young lady Miss Arment whose bouse was in Fillmore City. To her he repre sented himself as being nnmarried, and gave her the happy assurance that she should be his only wife, regardless of the peculiar institution of polygamy. When the intelligence of DeStael's defalcation reached the ear of this young lady, she, true to the love S3 solemnly plighted, and knowing also, too well, the persistence and severity of Mormon per secution, believed in the honesty aod good faith of her lover, and had no doobt that he had unhappily incurred the dis pleasure of the Elders of the Church; and that the story ot his crime bad been coined to stimulate the revengeful "Saints" to more determined pursuit of the object of their hatred. The lioe of her duty seemed clearly defined. As soon as the family had re tired at night, she hastily collected to gether a few necessary articles, and stealing softly out of the house, took ane of her father's horses and set ont for Fort Bridger, on her way to the States, to join her banished lover. ' Poor girl) She had no idea of the perils that awaited her on the long, weary, and almost pathless route that lay before her. What physical suffering she endured ; whst mental agony, none ever knew, nor indeed much else of her brief adventurous career. The father of the rath girl assembled a small company of his friends, and has tened in pursuit of his daughter, swear ing vengeance on DeStael, whom h. be lieved to have enticed her awny from her home. At Fort Bridger he discovered the first trace of her a single trace, that was a!!. ' He continued his course through the passes of ths great mountains, and out o the boundless plaina toward the east Bat the pursuit and search, though con tinued even down to the junction of the two Plattes, was wholly unsuccessful, and the sorrowing parent was compelled to return to his home with no intelligence 1 of his child. Several weeks later it was ascertained, tbreueh some adveotorous hunters- 00 the plains, that Miss Arment had been captured by a band of Cheyenne Indians at Cottenwood Springs, after havieg safely tr5 versed more than five hundred miles of her long, weary j urney. . From LARQE8T CITY CIHCULATIOIH. 3UIT8; ON DISPLAY. them she had made her escape, after a few days' detention, and then all trace of ber wandering ceased. Two months had passed, when a de tachment of soldiers of the Seventeenth regiment, returning from the campaign to Fort Connor, found the remains of the poor girl in the entrance to a cavern, about twelve miles from Kearney City, on the Platte river. There, alone among the barren hills of the "Bad Lands," she had died of starvation. And this, was the sorrowful fruit of a crime begotten in an inordinate craving for lucre. Aitch. There was a regular polyglot debate in the Lower HouBe yesterday, no leas than foar languages being spoken in the course of it The subject which elicited such a multiplicity ot tongues Was n bill " pro viding for the observance of the Holy Sabbath," which bad been introduced by a " culled " person a dayjpr two previous. After considerable pro and con had beun said, Mr. Guigonet, from Avoyelles par ish, asked permission to address the House in French, which being granted, he proceeded to deliver a Gailio dis course, utterly and entirely opposing the measure. The wild boy of Lafourche, known to the world as Murrell, then took the floor, and in his simple and nntaoght eloquence advocated in the Ashantee dialect, varied occasionally with choice extracts from Congo and Abyssinian writers on the subject, the passage of the bill. Up to this time the House was filled with shouts of laughter, for not withstanding the seriousness of the sub ject, the discussion which it evoked was too sublimely ludicrous not to excite mirth. Bat then Mr. Rengatorff of Or leans, rose, and first, by request, speak ing; a short time in German, his native tongne, and then in English, delivered a Bhort, pointed and ettecuve speecu, op posing, on general principles, any law which would endeavor to create a con science for every man, and then force him to obey Us dictates declaring, as the result of a long experience as a min ister of the a'C-spel, his belief that all such enactments vere unnecessary and hurt ful. The bill "s killed perfectly dead by 42 to 23. A7. O. Oreteent, litn. " . Military Arrests.

The physioiaos who attended Mr, Charles H. Sudlam, whose death from lydrophobia eccnrred Monday, have or bered bis son, six years old, to be locked up, aod every preeaation taken to guard against bis doing irjury to himself or others. As already stated, Mr. Sudlam was bitten a few weeks since by his dog, which had become rabid, and, after suf fering tbe most intense agony, died. When seized with the first spasm he knew he was afflicted with that ter rible malady, hydrophobia, and warned everybody to keep away from him. Drs. Fennoyer, Hutching and Good win were called in, and did all in their power for the unfortunate man. They were compelled to tie him upon the bed stead with sheets, but his agony was so great at times that he tore the sheets like ribbons, and broke the bedstead to which he was tied. There were six men with him constantly, nntil death relieved him of his terrible sufferings. It appears his little boy was first bitten by the dog, and Mr. Sudlam hearing bim cry, weut out to ascertain the cause, when the dog sprang at him and bit him in the hand. He im mediately killed tbe animal, but it ap pears did not comprehend the great dan ger he was in or the fearful result. A certain fashionable lady residing on Fifth avenue, Nsw York, recently dis covered, on going to her chamber te dress for a party, that ner diamonds, valued at half a million or thereabouts, bad disap peared from a safe in her dressing-room. She applied to Tiffany for aid, and he recommended the offer of a large reward and no questions asked. Five thousand dollars was advertised for the return of the brilliants, and the next day came a note stating that they would be delivered at such a time, in the presence of the lady and ber husband only. The lady sent for a professional diamond mer chant to test tbe stones, but instead of their being returned there came another note, upbraiding ber with lack of faith in the honor of the thief, and stating that the stones would now be re'urued only in a vacant lot near-Central Paik. There a servant was sent tbe next day, and the diamonds returned.

FT N L MOTH PROPR" II a rAcWt H3 IES 3ES THB ABOVE COt REPRESENTS THE FINLEY BEE HIVE, 'WITH THE UPPER portion partially elevated, showing the position of th. Honey Botes. Th. lower section is rhown with the door open 1 thus showing th. position of ths tubes. Th. abov. cut shows that ths nly entrance to th Hivs is through ths tubas, the lower ends of which rest npon the bot tom board of th Hive, while the upper ends are in th center, as seen in the out. The Hive Is also provide! with a Perforated Ventilator in such a manner as to ventilate it and at th same tims prevent moths or other insects from entering it. It will b seen from thepoltlon f th tubes that the moth, or miller, will have to pass throuch th very heart of th family of bees tefore admittance would be gained within tbe Hive ; and, from the known habits of the moth, will never be don ; and if it were attempted, it would only Insure its certain destruction. l having two or more Honey Boxes In the upper section, honey can be taken at sny time without distarbing the bees or breaking th oom. This Hive is so arranged that th honey is always free from young bees, bee-bread or other impurities. Th advantages of this Hiv over all , others, ar at once apparent, and wherever it has been tested it has rendered universal satis faction.' Among th advantages are the following, to-wit : 1. It is th oily moth-proof Be Hiv in existence, which of itself gives it pre eminence over a'l others, as th? moth is the greatest imiedim.nt to successful bee oalturc. 2. It is the CHEAPEST of all Hive, as th principle ein bs applied to any kind of Hive, from the common sweet-gum to th courtliest palace, at a cost of not more than on dollar, which is quit an item these bard times. 3. Honey oan be taken at any time, without disturbing the brood or th boas, and when taken is free from all imparities. , 4. Th lower section of this Hiv is so eenstructed that th bees invariably build straight, regular brood-combs, and fan build no other, as th bars ar s uniform distanoe apart, and the ' bees MUST build to the bars. 5. This hiv can b managed by any on of ordinary intelligence, and does not require any mors skill than th ordinary hive. . . t. With this hive you are not linbl to over rob your bees, as th lower section of th hiv ' is never disturbed. DIRECTIONS FOR TBE MANAGEMENT Of TI1K FINLEf BKE 1IIVK : 1. Remove the honey boxes from th upper section ; then tike a piece of new domestic and tack It over th top of th lower section of th hivs in such a manner as to prevent the bees from entering th upper section. .2. Remove th ventilator from th bottm of th hiv, when th bees can b hived the same as in th "old gum " hive. After your bee ar hived, be lure to leave the honey boxes out, which will insure, invariably, straight, regular brood-combs (which il always essential to ucoessful be culture), as the bees can boild give way whenever they attempt to fasten combs S. After th lower section of th hiv Is filled with comb within two, inches of th bottom toard, remove th oloth entirely from th hiveby sliding a piece of tin or thin plank, cut to fit th hiv, undar th eloth to keep the bees de n plaoe your h.oney bxes la the hive and slip th tin ont (to tako honey, nse th tin the same way, and you caa remove th honey boxes without any trouble), and you will haw all surplus honey free from Impurities. 4. Place th hiv under shelter, where morning sun. Partially remove the ventilator every few days, about noon, to permit th bees to remove any dead beei from the hive, but be sure to close It before evenitg or yon will let the miller or moth in. 5. Th winter management th same as th old Hiv. 6. At the approach of winter remove th Hive to a warm place ; partially remove th Ven tilator, occasionally, on warm days, for purpose!
