The featr of being exposed, and an entire ignorance of the laws of Eng L land, made Mir. Herby imunedi.tely submit to gratify the avarice of the old man, who stipulated for a life annuity for himself, his wife, and his daugltter. T'his adventure unfortu nately transpiring, through the jeal ousy, tuneasiness, and discontent of " his other wives, Mr.. Herby, to quiet 0 those tiears, which now interrupted his domestic happiness, compromised matters in a pecuniary way with the relations of his other wives; so that now he had twelve wives and all their relations to provide for. The tranquility of his little seraglio be ing thus restored, he pursued his usual course of life for some time, without any appearance of fiuture mo lestatioti. But on the 5th of May, 1734, one hof ta varlets going into his lmaster's chamber aat his usual hour of rising, Sfound in his bed only a bloody car ("lse, withollut a head; anal one of t 1's wives lay murdered by his side, w with a rumnier of wound(Is, which ap Sp1arel d to be the stabs otf a poignarld. 'The screamls of thile varlet soon -brought the other women and (dones into the apartment, whose ihorricd con sternationi cannot he l.:zressed. Two of the Turkish (domestics w-ere miss ing, and never heard of afterwards; all the cabinets were fotlund brokei open, and the treasures carried away, inot so much as a je-wel being left but what was in the woo iti's apart mnents, and had been long since given to them. As soon as the oiclers of justice arrived, the followintg ci remnustances were given in evidence to tiht jury \who sat on the bodies, lIv thel Turks who cane with tlheir late manster to England.

We heard, a night or two since a . tolerable good story of a couple of raftsmen T'he event occurred durine the late big blow on the Mississippi. at which time so many rafts were swamped, and so many steamboats losttheir rky-riggings. A raft was just emerging from Lake l.'epin as the Ssqualll came.· In an instant thle rnft was pitchitig and writhing as if sud denly dropped into Charpbdis, while the waves broke over with tremedous uproar, and expecting instant des tri ctiion, the raftsmran dropped upon his knees and commencedl praying with a vim equal to thlet emergency Ia ppening to open his eves an in. stant h' obldservedl his companion not engaged in prayer, but puishing a pole into the water at the sitle of the rtft. "What's that yer doin', Mike 2" said he ; " getf down on yer knees, now for there isn't a niinit between us and Purgatory !" "lie asy, Pat," said the other, as lIe coolly continued to pnnch the wa ter with his pole ; "be asy iow ! irhat'.s the use of praqing whken. a feller can te/c/i fottoem wit/ a paol ?

She was late flag ship of the Pacific squadron, is in good con dition, and could be fitted out in a f few days. The Plymouth was last employed as school ship for midshipmen, "0ld4 Ironside" relieving her. She is not. under immediate orders for service. SHer tonnage is 989 tons., She carrica S22 guns, and was built at Charleston in 1842. It would take six weeks to make her seaworthy. The Germantown is in good order and a slight overhauling will suffice to make her ready for commission. She is 93% tons burden, carries 22 guns, and was built at Philadelphia in 1846. She cruised on the coast of Brazil, in command of Capt. Lynch of exploration notoriety, from 1854 to 1857, and subsepuently in the China seas. The Columbus (Miss,) Republic says that within thirty-six hours after Gov. Pettus issued his proclamation for volunteers, thirteen companies responded and in less than five days fifty would doubtless report them selves ready for service. The hardest thing to hold in this world is an unruly tongue. It beats a hot smoothing iron and a kicking horse considerhly. Gans for North Carolisa.-A large number of the guns which recently did such good work in Charleston harbor, have been shipped to the forts in 'North (arolina, in compliance with special request. Capt. IH. B. Favro.-We under stand that our honored and respec ted friend and fellow citizen Capt. II. B. Favrot, is at work mustering into service the free colored men of the city, and has already about thirty of them enrolled. We count on them as a host in any emergen cy; their lives and property; the laws ulnder which they live and re ceive protection from tyrany and despotism, are all in jeopardy in this perilous hour. The recollec tionlls, of the 8th of January 1812, and their comIportant part. bravely andl honorably maintained in that action, nerves them now to emu late the heroes of the iolden timue.
