Tbe yonngludios at Long Branch are especially addicted to croquet Evident ly they follow the ndvice of the old song which says, "If you ve got a pretty foot show it," and a short dress and a game of croquet won't allow thorn that opportu nity, there is no use in looking for it else where. The New York Commercial Adverti ser, in alluding to the recent story pub liihoJ about Jefferson Davis, says: " "No sonsible person credited the outrageous yarn. Mr. Davis moral character is as much above reproach as was tliat of Cn sar's wife, aud he sacrifice his dignity in descending to notico such an emana tion from a western editorial slum." The news from Paris is that justice is to bo tempered with mercy, and the Communist leaders who were sentenced to be shot are probably to have their sentences commuted to imprisonment Nothing is said of tho chief of Farisan mobocracy, Itochefort, and there would seem to be a strong reluctance on the part oftho Government to bring him to trial The story that he was too 411 to undergo that process is generally dis credited. The Connecticut Senuto has passed a bill which renders null and void all bus iness dealings for liquors; enables the purchaser even of a glass of whisky to recover tho ten cents he pays for it; de clares null and void all sales, transfers, contracts, iuit claims, mortgages, at tachments and hens, made in considera tion (part or whole) of the sale of any spirituous liquor; makes null nnd void all leases of premises if liquor is sold on them; punmhos by fine of $100 or a month in jail (or both) the sale of liq uor to any minor under eighteen years of age; makes the person who sells re sponsible for all damages dono by drunk en men, and permits any tax-payer to Hiio such seller whenever tho drinker ibuses his family. Other stringent pro visions follow. Tho most touching illustration of rad ical love for the man nudbrother has been recently afforded in Mississippi, as 'iveu to the world by the Oxford corres pondent of the Memphis Appeal A certain earpet-baggor runs a low grog sdop, frequented exclusively by negroes. In the fullness of his affection lor the dusky race he insured a strong, healthy fifteenth amendments life for $'2,000. Cuffee was then strictly sober in his hab its and implicity believed that tho policy would operate to prolong bis life to what ever length he wished. Tho carpet bnggor next took him into bis employment and gave him unrestrcitcd access to a barrel of tho vilest "bust haul" ever compounded in Cincinnati. Result Coffee was dead iu about two weeks and his benefactor pocketed tho 2,000. Tho vindictcd feeling which exists in the hearts of the irreligious Homans and of the Communists of Borne against the Pone and tho catholic faith is comment ed upon in the recent letter of a corres pondent writing from that city. Young Italy, it is said lull of wrath and not blood, has ropliod to the provocations offered by the lower members of the Church party in the following strain : "If wo are obligod to abandon Rome by tho intervention of Henrv v., (Count de Chambord), or any other sovereign we will first Lurn the Vat ican, .St. Peter s, and every other church, bang the Pope, and massacre every priest and Jesuit in the city." This is a sad com mentary on the charactor and purposes of what is known as the party of Italian unity, to wh:c l Victor JMnmanuel pander ed when ho occupied tho Holy City with his troops. Tennessee Orphan Asylum. The Board of Managers of the Tenncs- 8oe Orphan Asylum, having determined to continue their efforts to obtain informa tion, in regard to the number who will yot apply for admission into this institution, therefore request all poisons wno W;Su to make applications for such children, or who have knowledge of any for whom ap plication will be made for, to write innnc- .hately to Mrs A. It. Mudford, beerotary of tho Bunrd at Clarksvillo, Tennessee, u on the subject All newspapers friondly to tne cause m the State, respectfully requested to give this notice several insertions in their columns, as we are exceedingly anxious to have full information by September 1, 1871. Renpoctfully, Mas. V. G. Fnae President Board of Managers. Don't Do It. No, young man, don't do it Don't marry dimples, nor anklos, nor eyes, nor mouths, nor hair, nor necks, nor chins, nor toeth, nor simpers. These bits and scraps of feminity are mighty poor things to tie to. Marry tho true thing. Look after congeniality, kindred sympathies, disposition, education, and if these be joined with social position, or even filthy lucre, why. don't let them stand in your way. Get a woman not one of thoso parlor lay figuros one of those parlor automata that sit down just so, thuinp a piano and dote on a whisker. Living statues are poor things to call into con sultation. Tho poor littlo mind that can scarcely fathom tho depth of a dress trimming, can't be a help-mate on any account Don't throw away your tinio upon such trifling things. Arto-nus Ward says in Mllii Book." "A female woman is one of tbe greatest institutions of which the land can boast. It is imposiblo to do without her. Ob wo man! woman! vou are an anoel when you behave your self; but wheu you take oft your proper apparel, and (metiforioally speaking) get iuto pantaloons, and under take to play man, you play tne aerti, ana are an cniplnmo uuisaoco. A MOUNTAIN OF SILVER. Mineral Wealth in Colorado-Discovery of Immense Ddposlts. A correspondent of the Denver News says that the mountain village of George town is still wild with excitement over the discovery. Leavenworth Mountain is within a mile and a half of the Placer diggings. On iU sides silver was dis covered by the In graham brothers, two export Miners, some time in December last They were in tho employ of the Equator company, and were drifting when they canio across large quantities of mineral imbedded in the "slides," both above 'aud below the main vein. Aftor concluding their work for the Equator, they went quietly to work for themselves, and in the course of three weeks had taken out from $1,000 to $1, 500 worth. One solid chunk weighed sevon hundred and sixty-six pounds, and from it they realized over $300. The work, however could not long re main a secret, and the "Silver Patch Diggings" became the rage. The ex citement spread, and soon Leavenworth Mountain was a scene of business ac tivity seldom witnessed. At a distance the mountain resembled a mammoth ant hill, so thickly was it beset with amateur and professional miners. The scene was an amusing and interesting one. Many would "pitch iu" and dig a hole large enough to contain a largo cat, and failing to "strike it," would wend their way down tho mountuin. Those "hav ing the sand" bent themselves to their work, and such never failed in being well rewarded. "I've struck it," was tho prevailing ex pression, and whon an unusually large piece was taken out, there was a rush to examine it and congratulate the lucky finder. The largest solid piece that has yet been found turned tho scalo at four hundred and thirty-two pounds. We saw several pieces of pure mineral aver aging from two hundred to three hun dred pounds each, which, when essayed, gave a returu of from 1,500, to 2,000 ounces per ton. Wirt and Webster's Wit Daniel AVebstor was once engaged in the trial of a case in ouo of the Virginia court;, and tho opposing counsel was William AVirt, author of the "Lifo of Patrick Henry," which had been criti cised as a brilliant romance. In the progress of the case, Mr. AVebster pro duced a highly respectablo witness, whose testimony (unless disapproved or im peached settled the case uud annihilated Mr. Wirt's client After getting through the testimony, he informed Mr. AVirt, with a significant expression, that he was at his service. Mr. AVirt rose to commence the cross-examination, but seemed for a moment quite perplexed how to proceed, but quickly as&uming a manner expressive of his incredulity as to tho facts elicited, and coolly eyeing the witness a moment, he said: "Mr. K , allow me to ask you if you have cvir road a work called the 'Baron Munchausen ?' " Before the witness had time to reply, Mr. AVebstor quickly rose to his feet, and said: "I beg your pardon, Mr. Wirt, for the interruption ; but there was one quostiou I forgot to ask the witness, and if you will allow me that favor I promise not to interrupt you again." Mr. AVirt, in tho blandest manner, re plied: "Yes, most certainly; when Mr. Av eb- ster in the most deliberate and solumn manner, stud : "Sir, have you ever read Wirt's Patrick Henry?" Iheeflectwas irrcsistiole, and even the Judge could not control his rigid features. Mr. Wirt himself joined in tho momontary laugh, and, turning to Mr. Avobster, said: "Suppose we submit this case to the jury without summing np," which was assented to, and Mr. AVebstor s cheut won the suit Bench and Bar, by L. J. Bigelow. Buried ileauty. Iu the city of Rome there formerly stood an linage with its right hand ex tended and on its forefinger the words "strike here." Many wise men puzzled in vain over the meaning of the inscrip tion; but at last a certain priest obsorved that whenever the sun shono on the fig nro the shadow of the finger was dis cernible on tho ground at a little distance from the statue. Having marked the spot he waited until midnight, and then began to dig. At lost his spade struck upon something hard. It was a trap door, below which a flight of morblo steps descended into a spacious hall, whero many men were sitting in solumn silence amid piles of gold and diamonds and long rows of enameled vasca ,23c yond this he found another rooui, a gymnasium filled With beautiful women reclining on richly embroidered sofas; yet, here too, was profound silence. A superb banqueting hall next met his as tonished gaze; then granaries loaded with forage; then a stable crowded with motiouless horses. The whole place was brilliantly lighted by a carbuncle which was suspended in one corner of tho ro ception room ; and opposite stood an ar cher with his bow and arrow raised, in tho act of taking aim at tho jewel As the priest passed bRtk through this hull he saw a diamond-hilted knife lying on the tablo; and, wishing to carry away something wherewith to accredit his story, he reached out his hand to take it; but no sooner had he touched it than all was dark. Tho archer had shot his arrow, the bright jewel was shivered into a thousand pieces, the staircase had fled, and tho priest found himself buried alive. "I forgot s great many things which happenod last year," said s little girl, while tears ran down her cheeks, "but I ean't forget the angry words I spoke to niv dear mother who is now dead." Yauderbilt'g Beginning iulift. The newspaper often contain an ac count of Vauderbilt's beginning. M't of these) acuounts are apochrypual His own statement of his first real success is this: He was a young man on Stalen Island. He was master of rowing. IU was ath letic, strong and daring. One night stranger cams to the landing and wanted to be rowed serosa to uowainns. The night was dark and stormy, and the wind blew a gale. Not s boatman could be fonnd who would leave. Tho land lord said, "There is nobody who can row ou over bnt Uonu Vandcrbut for so ie was called. It was doubtful he said. whether he would da it Vsuderbilt was found snd in answor to the request, replied: "It's pretty rough, but if youH give ins $10, lie down in my boat, and not stir, or do just what I lid you, I'll try it" He rowed the man over and b.ick in safety. As soon as he landed on btatcn Island, the stramror said: Young man, how would you like to run an opposition steamboat V "Nothing would suit me better." was the reply. "Have yon pluck cnondi to obev or- dors?" stid the stranger. "1 nave, was tho response. "Suppose I was to tell tou to run into a steamboat, wlmt would you do t" "llun into Her, by ." The bnr- gnin was soaled amid the storm that night on the Island, and Vanderbilt soon began his well-known career as a steam-bottt-man. Stuten Island Leader. An old story contains a lesson which many married collides have not vet learned. When Jonathan Trumbull was Governor of Connecticut, a gentleman called at his houso one day requesting a private interview. Ha saiil: 'T called npon a very unpleasant errand, sir, ana want your advice. My wifo and I do not live happily tosrethor. and I am thinking of getting a divorce. AVhut do yo j advise, sir ?" llie Uovernor sat a few moments in thought; then tumim to his visitor. said, "How did you treat Mrs. AV wuen you were courting her, and how did you fool towards hor ut the time of your marriage? ' faquiro Av replied. "I treated her as kindly as 1 could, for I loved her dearly at that time." " V elL sir. ' said tho Governor. "ra homo and court hor now just as you did tuen, aim love nrr as when you married. Do this in the foar of God for ono year, and then tell me the result" The Governor then said "Let usnrnv." They bowod in prayer and separated. VY mm a year bad passed away Squire W cidled again to see the Governor, and said, '! have called to thank you ior tno good auvico you gave me, aud to tell you that my wife and I are happy as wheu first married. I cannot he grateful enough for your good counsel." "I am glad to hear it Mr. Wr ," said tho Governor, "and hone vou will . , y continue to court your wife as lone as you live." The Newspaper. "The Newspaper," as the Courier- Journal truly observes, has done "a no ble shore in bringing the world np to the sublime attitude it now occupies." It adds: "The fact that its columns are the converging focus of tho olectric fluid as it flashos tho news of all nations arouud tho world renders the live news paper an article in unusual demand. In addition to this the local and domestic news is reflected daily in its pages. The statesman and the cross-road politician must have it The merchant prince and the peddler are ill at oase until they have scanned its columns. The professor and the student, the opulent planter counting his acres by hundreds and the small farmer who bares his brow to tho noonday sun, evince an anxiety to hear from the great world that can only be satisfied by the columns of tho daily newspaper. Bad Fix for a Lover. The Wythcvillo Dispatch relates the following: Not far from ns a young lady attempt ed to leave the parental mansion, at dead of night, by lowering herself from her chamber by means of a pulley and rope fastened to her window. She had just reached the ground, where her lover awaitod, seized the young man, fastened the hook to his pants, and raised him skywards, loaving him dangling in the air until morning. Tho elopement was indefinitely post poned. A Woman's Outfit. Says the Woman's Journal. "The amount of over-skirts, undcr-skirts, pan iers, 6ash.es, sucques, basques, ' paletots, polonaises, shawls, pun's, ruffles, flounces, flntings, fhilings, over-sloeves, cravats, collars, caffs, hats, bonnets, chignons, etc., etc., which invariably find their way to s woman's wardrobe, even when she seeks emancipation from this burden some toggery, and economy in clothes, is frightful to contemplate." ' 1 An Omaha paper advises the people not to make such a fuss aboat the shooting of one constable, as there are over forty candidates for the position. Somebody bas written a book entitled "what shall my son bs V Upon which tome one replies: "If the boy is as bad as the book, the chasees ars that he will be hanged.". ' : Truth is the boud of anion, snd the bs sis of human happiness. , Without this virtue, there it no reliance on language, no eoufidenoe in friendship, no security in promises and oaths. Be truthful snd you will be happy. There is a difference between character and reputation the first being what a man realy is, the other What people thkik Vm to be, snd these nay be at opposite as the poles.
