Th'l trell. lhitor is this. llSome of olr cruiisers had captured an eiuneltliv's translrt, laden with llritishl uiiil's ins, which were used in clothing soldiersl. In general they were died blue before distribution, but a feiw had been served out iL their orig1inal color to troops eltca:iped in the Highlands, conl uianded by Genleral George Clinton. The lifghlantd forts were taken on the titlh of October, lT7., by Sir lHenry Clin ton, and oil the sth he dispatched a let ter, dated at Fort Molltgunlcery, to Gen cral Ilurgo'yne, announcing its capture. The bearer of this letter, on the next day, fill in with a picket guard of George Clintoun's fortes, clothed in red coats, and being deceived by their uni forms, applroachled and asked the name of their 'onitunander. The answer was, "Genelral ('linton." Thinking that the British General had shifted his quarters, he asked to be conducted to him, and upon discovering his mistake, lie imme diately swallowed the silver ball which contained the dispatch. He was dis _overed in the act, by the administra of cinetics, was forced to disgorge Samre adsi.miui.. lie was hung in sight il of ua W Visiting the menagerie, we were amused to listen to the following speech about the South American anaconda; the keeper wearing him around his neck, and introducing him thus: "Ladies and gentlemen, this is the great South Amer ican anaconda, of vast size and growing into a warnm climate. lie feeds on rab bits, as well as birds of that nature, be sides whatever lie can git, if they fall in his way, as is very liable, especially in those climates, which are very healthy for invalids, especially consumptives. His skill, its you see, is speckledl on the back and on the belly-either one-it mnakes no difference which. He will fast three weeks, but sometimes I have knownIt him to do it three months with iout eating anything, or rather two rab bits, which takes him n verel days. That there is poison in the fork of his tongue, is a vulgar error; for his mus cular power is at the end of his tail, which he swings with great energy, and crushes his victim. lie is of greater or less longevity, but as he never ceases to grow as long as lie lives, there is no criterion for his life." I.,A baop arrested for stealing pork, made the following defense : "From my youth upward 1 have loved baked beans. I have a passion for that substantial dish that bafles all description. With out beans I am miserable : with beans I am happy. Beans I want for break fast-beans I want for dinner-and cold beans for supper. A few days since my pork barrel was empty. What was Ito do ? 1 had plenty of beans but not a pound of pork. I was in despair and inew nlot what to do. If I missed my pork and beans I should die, and while in this frame of mind I wandered through the streets until my eyes fell upon '"clear mess," and I have made a mess of it by taking it. If I had gone clear, I should have had pork enough for my beans for six months. This is my defense-this is my weakness. Dwlnr av rnx Exacr Azs or Own Hox naIE Yzus.-A person named qBager Largos has recently died at Paris, atihe age of 100, precisely, day for day -al even hour for hour. It was at one o' clock in the afternoon of the 10th of De cember, 1159, that he was born, and at one o'clock, in the afternoon of the leth of December, 1859, that he died. He was a very remarkable personage, hav ing excelled as a painter, engraver, poet iand musican; and yet he was totally unknown to the public, because he would never consent to exhibit or publish any of his productions. qThe Cardinal Vicar of Rome has issued an edict forbidding ladies to go to church in criaoline. The confessor is to forbid them to present themselves at the alter to take the sacruament, unless Sthey are dressed in a aiuae ,awer. From the Li4 owrad EzMaiqcr. "1W IA T DOES VIRGINII MEAN TO DO) ?" . ,inme of our Southern exchanges pro fess to be at a loste to understand the true attitude of Virginia, at this tinmi, and are asking for light. We c''lUmend to the consideration of those whl tre seeking iufor:uation upon this subject, the spet.cIw-s of our con gressi,,nal delegation, the resolutions of more than one huLdrel primary meet ings of the people ia al! ectiions of the State, and the bold, manly language of the late message of Gov. Letcher. They will discover from the perusal of the speeches of our Seators and members of the House of Representatives at \Washington, as well as from the resolu tions of the primary meetings and the message of the present Executive of Virginia, that there exists the most per fect unanimity of sentiment in the State :oa to the course which Virginia will pursue in the event of the election of any endorser of the "irrepressible con flict" to the Presidency. When Gov. IeAtcher declares that Virginia will not allow any Sewardlitc in sentiment to get the command of tl Army and Navy of the United States, hc exresses the de termination of the people of Virginia without distinction of party. The editors of our Southern exchan ges cannot have failed to observe the tenor of the resolutions with which the people of Virginia have filled the papers of this city for months past. They all advocate resistance to the election of an "irrepressible conflict" candidate for the Presidency, and solicit at the hands of the Legislature, a speedy organizatioir of the militia, and liberal appropriations for the purchase of improved fire-arms,. and are clamorous for commercial inde pendence of the North, and the encour agement of direct trade and domestic manufactures. To accomplish these desirable results, they have declared' their willingness to bear an increase of taxation. The fact that our Legislature has jpr mitted forty days, near onehbafef t session, to elapse, with -' upon any of su t tn si w w have 'dada llfM1ui evhme that they ms e~ldr L~be*ar or uliorenat to the msaits wishes of the p.sp of the State. Legislative bodies am pro verbially slow, and the Ia isure of Virgiaia~titutesn o ex piU with a large nmber of the members of both branches of the Legislature au thorizes us to state that there will be elfTcient legislation upon those matters of importance to which we have alladed' in a short time. We regret, most deep ly, that the "Arms and Armory Bill," as it is called, was not acted upon earlier in the session; but we do not dream of any serious opposition to that measure, since the people of Virginia and the Ex ecutive have alike urged immediate ap propriations for furnishing the volun teer companies with arms.
