It the editor of the Courier had been covered &U ever with ulcohol, and a lighted match had then becii applied te him, he could hardly have blazed up more fiercely than he has this week, ou the subject of temperance. He cuts more awkward antics over it than a bear in a dunce. He first tells us he cannot sympathise with the sentiments of the resolutions adopted at the Bap tist Church last Monday night, "any more than Greeley did with the Baltimore Whig platform." Greeley, it will be remembered, wanted to "spit on the Whig platform," and has since formally abandoned the Whig party. Yet in another col umn our consistent neighbors quote with a flour ish an article from the Washington Union, in which it is charged that the Mafcie Liquor Law is a new plank in the Whig platform, and Gree ley's advocacy alehe pointed to as evidence ! In their anniety to intimute delicately that they would like, to spd on the temperance plaljorm, our neighbors have shown themselves aware of their own inconsistency. They commend the Wash ington Union fer saying "We have no business with it as Democrats, one way or ike other," and then broadly tell us that the Maine Liquor Law Will be defeated by the Democracy whenever it is brought before the people, and intimate that The following letter was written to a gentle man of this city, who permits us to publish it.

Late on Tuesday evening, a man by thn name of Christian Auman, living in tho eastern part of the city, was arrested on a charge of murder ing his wife.

This yarn is too absurd to talk about. There is no such thing in the law i but suppese the Maine Legislators had been such consummate donkeys as to insert such a provision in their law, does it follow that the Missouri legislators must be fools enough to follow them ? But the Maine Liquor Law or a Missouri State prohibitory law is not now the question before the people of Ilannibid. The question solely is whether this city shall be rid of the trafiiic in ardent spirits, by the exercise of pow ers already granted by the Legislature. This is the utmost boundary of the question to be dis cussed before the coming city election. Returned. Mr. Edward C. McDonald re turned yesterday frera California.

Upon a eertairf occasion a man oalled in him with a due bill for twenty dollars against ad estate he had beet) employed to settle. Frienel Hopper put it a Way, saying he Would examine it and atend Is) it as soon as he had leisure. The rfaah called again a short lime after, and etsted that he had need of six dollars, and was willing to give a, receipt for the whole if that sum were advanced. This proposition excited Suspicion', arid the ad ministrator decided in his own mind that ha would pay nothing till he had examined the pa pers of the deceased. Searching carefully among these he found a receipt for the none' mentioning the identical items, date and circum stances if the transabtien; stating that a due bill had been given and lost, and was to be restored by the creditor wheri found. When the mall called again for payment, lsaao said te him, in e quiet way, " Friend Jones, I understand thott hast become pious, lately. lie replied in a solemn tenet "Yes; thanks to the Lord Jesds; I have fodhd out the way ef salvation." "And thou hast been dipped. I hear." con tinued the Quaker. " Dost thou know JUbmI Aunter?" Mr. Jones answered in the affirmative. ' .'.

This island is situated id about 45 deg. south latitude, aud abeut sidway' between the Cape of Good Hope and Cap' Horn. In the year 1811 the British frigate Pundora struck on a ledge ef rocks near thie island, on her return home from Bengal, ladeit with troops. One of their number; Sergeant Glass, while the troops were being landed, pre paralory to getting tne ship off the rocks, toott advantage of the confusion attendant thereon; and secreted himsell on the island, and the ship sailed without him. Glass remained here three! years, subsisting in the meantime on the flesh of goats, which here abound, and also on shell fish and roots, liy the expiration w una time he had succeeded in constructing a beat frees! drift timber, and other materials; and proceeded with a cargo of s-oat skins to the Cape ef Good ; Hope, some i.buu miles distant. Tne time which he selected for his departure in this frail craft, was during the prevalence of the westerly winds. He accomplished his perilous voyage in safety. After a short residence at Cape Town, be married the widow of a soldier who had died at tha Cape J and with his wife and a negro man, returned to his solitary Island again; taking with him various implements, seeds, arms . and ammunition, together with other necessaries) which were liberally furnished him by the mer chants sf Cape Town.
