" We left Montreal yesterday for this
place, at:d as we entered the car and to..k

The face we speak of is one which once seen

Il was Jtfi'. Davis with bis wife and two
irieuds on their way to attend tue com
mencement of the seminary at Lennox

dren are being educated.
Mr. Davis appeared to be in the b'st
spirits ; jn lact we fancied the presence of
that smiik of satisfaction which a male
factor may well we r when he has out
witted the minister of justice and escaped
their toils. Bat lifle notice was t..k -n of
this notorious personage until our arrival
at Sherkrooke, a station a few miles west
of Lennoxville. Tnere the news of his
approaching advent had been heralded
days before. Ae we reached the station,
crowds of men. in white shoe, with fie y

A Remarkable Cask In Clinton, 111.,
a young woman orer two years ago, after
washing windows, was repUcing them
when she struck her hand through the
gl 8S, running several long pieces into
hrhand. After several days a physician
was called, and as was supposed the g'ass
all extracted. But it appears not to have
been the ease, as a large quan ity was
left in the band, which soon made its ap-
pearanre under the skin on her arm, and
wa- cut ut by her surgeon. It contin
ued spreading until it has extended to
all parts of her body, It has been ex
traded from her eyes, head, arms a d
fett.and in fact from all parts of her body.
Six months ago it c-insed the lockj iw,

Question What do you think, sir, of
the condition of the republican party in
New York State?
Mr. Stevens I think ynu will be killed
by conservatism in New Y-rk. Your re
publicans are what the Indian would cll
' mighty uncertain.' They have no bold-nca-i
or settled principle. Your last year's
platform was of the most ahsurd and cow
ardly that cou'd be adopted in a country

I suppose he will be for a still rao-e de

are not reliable. T look upon Laffia as
an entirely demoralized man. Most of
the others are no better than he. Conk-,
ling has hiiherto been true, and I hope he
will continue so in his new position. I
believe New York will be lost this year

Mr. Sevens-I fear that we shall lose

mat all the honest j-eople in the State are
diseartenened and d.sgusted.

In answer to questions he s'ated that
Raymond had been the worst failure he
had seen in Congrcs. He had a pret'y
style of talking and a certain soit of smart
ness in debate, but it was of the school"
boy, sopbotnorical style, and could not
sund an instant udder tbe test of earnest
principle. In the midst of his most elab

rangut-s, a few words of sound common
sense would knock him fiat upen his buck

' At fin-t,' said Mr. Stevens, t had look

He is at once supeificijl, weak and im

Upon the subject of the next Presidn
cy Old. Thad is not disposed to be comma
iiicative. He regard Gen. Grant as a
great soldier, who has the best position
an y man can ever occupy in tbe United
States, and does not beleive he would b&
foolitth enough to look for any other. He
thinks a success as a general" may be a
failure aa a President. Chase he regards
as a negative man, by oo means popular
or powerful. Butler is a humbug. Old
Beu Wade has pla)ed hims. If out. Jn

believes in the inmost recesses of hia heart
that if, in the course of human events,
the country should look to Lancaster icr
