The records of the ast iiirnish us with half a dozen hisfcrical characters that seem to have hada myserious ex istence after the publi hae been in formed of their tragiital deaths. To such an extent has tie belief of a post-existence been carud that one could say, with great propriety, in the language of Sir Willha Jones : "The block may soak tJeir gore, Their heads may soddta in the nun, their limbs Be strong to city gates ;nd castle walls ; But st ill their spirit w4ks abroad." i And these spirits seni generally to be eucased in tangible earthly bodies. if we may credit the tales of travels lers. This young epublic has not been slciw id Waking i startling htsto ry, and one that has Si the romantic pages of century-oil Europe. For have we not ! J. WILKES BOOTH, : ' . who, like that phanbm ship, the Fly ing Dutchman, is, frjni time to time, reported to have befi seen in propria jycrsona in ; various prts of the world ; the latest story beig that he now is the captain of a piate Vc?sel and the terror of the Chios seas. At intervals the press informs he public that some reliable corresponieuts have seen the notorious assassic in Europe. One time he has beenscea playing rovye ct noir at Baden Baten ; another at the op era in Vienna. 0o positively swears that he saw him during in the Bois de Boulogne at Yiis. And another is equally confident" fcat he beheld him visiting St. Peter's at Rome. One fact is certain in re;ard to the disposal of the corpse of BcDth, that its resting ! place is known to hit few, and the pub- j Jiu at iargu are in uiuui aa tu wnuuiur i it now moulders in a secluded and un known grave, or whether the dark wa ters of the Potomtf received his man gled remains.

I wish I may never hear of the United Staies again." These words shocked the Revolutionary officers that formed the Court-martial, and Nolan was coudemnci to be sent on board a vessel, where ae was never ; aSaiQ to hear the words United States, ! and the instructions received were as ' follows : " Washington,'' (with the date, which must have been late in 1867.) "Sir : You" will receive from Lieu tenant Neale the person of Philip No lan, late a lieutenant in the United States army. " This person on his trial by court martial expressed with an oath the wish that he might 'nevei hear of the United States again " The Court sentenced him to have his wish fulfilled. ' i " For the present, the execution of the order is intrusted by the President to this department. "You will take the prisoner onboard your ship, and keep him there with such precautions as shall prevent his escape. " You will provide him with such quarters, rations, and clothing as would be proper for an officer of his late rank, if he were a passenger on your vessel on the business of his Government. " The gentlemen on board will make any arrangements agreeable to them selves regarding his society. He is to be exposed to no indignity of any kind, nor is he ever unnecessarily to be re minded that he is a prisoner. "Bat under no circumstances is he ever to hear of his country or to see any information regardiug it j and you will specially cautiou all the officers under your command to take care, that in the various indulgences which may be granted, this rule, in which iis punishment is involved, shall not be broken. " It is the intention of the Govern ment that he shall never again sec the country which he has disowned. Be T7 . -J COUNTRY." fore the cnclof your cruise you will re ceive orders which will give effect to this intention. "Respectfully yours, W. SOUTHARD, " For the Secretary of tho Navy." Nolan seems ; to have been passed from vessel to vessel, and to have re. mained a prisoner for over sixty years, and was made the subject of innumer able traditions, and - palpable Anyths. He was strictly guarded, and the name of the United States never mentioned to him." It is generally supposed, how ever, that, this myth was originated du ring the recent war by some highly imaginative individual who desired to institute comparison and similes be tween Nolan and the rebel leaders. Of course, Nolatit repented of his folly, and died deeply regretting the? incau tious words that condemned him to a life of imprisonment, which was pro bably more paicful, as it prevented him from interfering in the politics of the country. MAN IS TITK IRON MASK. Within the walls of the Bastile du ring the reign of Louis XIV., was enacted the inexplicable mystery, which has coutinued a mystery to this day, of the Man in the Iron Mask. When first heard of, he was confined in the Marguerite Islands, in the Mediterra nean, whence he was removed by De Saint Mars, who was his private gov ernor, and answerable, it is supposed, for his safety with his own life, to the Bastile, where he died, on November 19, 1703, and wa3 buried on the 20th, in the cemetery of St. Paul, under the name ofMachiati. No man, except the governor, so far as is known, ever saw b.13 face, or heard his voice : two persons, . to whom he had conveyed written words, in one case marked up on a linen shirt, in the other engraved uu a suvei piute, uiui, niuiuuu auuai- ent cause, immediately atterwards. During'his conveyance from the Mar guerite Lies, De Saint Mars dined at the same table, and slept in the same chamber with him, with pistols ever at hand ready to destroy him, in the case of an attempt on his part to reveal himself. In theBasfcile he was waited on, at table and at Jiioilet, by the governor, who took charge f and de stroyed all the linen he "once used. He was never seen but with a mask of black vebj?tt, fastened behind his head . . , ... t ..... i i 1.- i. witn steet spriugs : anu wnen ne went , i r i i to hear mass, the invalids, who were in , ,. , .' , . j i . charge of lum with m iskcts and light- ed matches, were insL acted tG tire ' . . on him instantly in case or his peaking ur suuhiu" ma iatu. hundred con- ! . 1.

THE LAST OF THE STUARTS. Henrv Benedict Maria Clement Stu art, Cardinal York, the last male rep resentative of the Stu-.irt family, was jfcforn in Rome in ISlio, died in Venice : in 1807. lie was the younger brother of the Pretender, Charles Edward, (the Prince Charley of Scottish song) whom he wa3 preparing to ail with a body of French troops assembled at Dunkirk, when the overthrow of the Jacobites at Culloden ruined the Stuart cause in Britain. lie subsequently took orders in the Roman Catholic Church, and in 1747 was appointed by Benedict XIV . a Cardinal. On the death of his bro ther, in 1788, he assumed the title of King of England as Henry IX., gratia Dei, non voluntate hominum, as tiie medal which ho caused to be struck of the occasion declared. He was subse quently obliged to take refuge from xrench invasion in Venice, and during the last years ot his life was dependent upon the British Court for means of subsistence. He was the last male ot the Stuart family, and with his death the line became extinct. Its chief branches in the female line are the houses of Savoy and Orleans and the Duke of Modena, all descended from Henrietta Maria, daughter of Charles I., of which king the present Duke of Moaena is the lineal representative, being thus, but for the act of settle ment, heir to the crown of England. There are two families of the name of Stuart on this continent that claim! falsely to he the descendants of tho Stuarts, and if they be the descendants they cannot be the legitimate lineal re- presentatives, because tne last male ot the line died a priest, and was never changed' their names. One of these j o .i females resides in Jackson, Mo., and ,the other in Lenoxyille, Canada. 71 4 AJJli NO. 39. Erg. Caudle's Lectures. Airs. Caudle has leen to see her dear mother. Caudle, on the "joyful occa. sion," has given a party, and issued ''the suhjoined card of invitation. K " WHEN THE CAT'S AWAY THE MICE WILL PLAY." Mr. CAUDLES compliments to M.r HENRY PRETTYMAN, and expects to have the honor of his company on this joyful occasion, at halfpast Eight o'clock. lt is hard, I think, Mr. Caudle, that I can't leave home for a day or two, but the house must be turned into a tavern: a tavern ? a pothouse? Yes, I thought you were very anxious that I should go; I thought you wanted to get rid of me for somethings, or you would not have insisted on my staying at dear mother's all night. You were afraid I should get cold coming home, were you? Oh yes, you can be very tender, you can, Mr. Caudle, when .-'it suits your own purpose. Yes! and the world thinks what a good husbandyou are ! I only wish the world knew you as well as I do, that's all; but it shall, some day, I'm determined. "I'm sure the house will not be sweet for a month. All the curtains are poisoned with smoke; and, what's more, with the filthiest smoke I ever knew. Take 'em dotcn, thc?i? Yes, it's all very well for you to say, take 'em down; but they were only cleaned and put up a month ago; but a careful wife's lost upon you, Mr. Caudle. You ought to have married somebody who'd have let your house go to wreck and ruin, as I will for the future. People who don't care for their fami lies are better thought of than those who do; I've long found out that. "Aud what a condition the carpet's in! They've taken five pounds out of it, if a farthing, with their filthy boots, and I don t know what besides. And then the smoke in the hearth-rug, and a large ciuder-hole burnt in it! I nev er saw such a house in my life! If you wanted to have a few friends, why couldn't you invite 'cm when your wife's at home, like any other man? not have 'em sueaking in, likeajstt of housebreakers, directly a woman turns her back. They must be pretty gen tlemen, they must; mean fellows, that are afraid to face a woman! Ila ! dnd you call yourselves the lords of the creatiou! 1 should only like to See what would be come of the creation, if you were left to yourselves! A pretty pick le creation would be in very soon! " You must all have been in a nice condition? What do you say? You took nothing? Took nothing, didn't yon? I'm sure there's such a regiment of empty bottles, I haven't had the heart to couat 'cm. And punch, too! you must have punch! There's a hundred half-lemons in the kitchen, if there's one; for Susan, like a good girl, kept 'em to show 'em me. No, sir; Susan shan't leave the houscl What do you say? She hasno right to tell talcs and you WILL be master of your oicn house? Will you? If you doQ t alter, Mr. Cau dle, you'll soon have no house to be master of. A whole loaf of sugar did I leave in the cupboard, and now there isn't as much as would fill a tea-cup. Do you suppose I'm to find sugar for punch for fifty men? What da you siy? There wasn't fifty? That's no matter; the more shame for 'em, sir. I'm sure they drunk enough fo'r fifty. Do you suppose out of my housekeep ing money JL'em to find sugar for punch for all the world? Yon don't ash me? Don't you ask me? You do; you know you do: for if I only want a shilling extra, the house is in a blaze. And yet a whole loaf of sugar can you throw away upon No, 1 won t be still; and I won't let you go to sleep. If you'd got to bed at a proper hour last night, you wouldn't have been so sleepy now. ou can sit up iialf the night with a pack of people who don't carej for you, and your poor wife can't get in a word! "And here s that China image that I had when I was married I wouldn't have taken any sum of money for it, and you know it and how do I find it? With its procious head knocked off! And what was more mean, more contemptible than all besides, it was put on again, a3 if nothing had haps pencd. You knew nothing about ' it? Now, how can you lie there, in your Christian bed.

Let any farmer make the experiment, and he will find it as interesting as it is useful, and both interesting and use ful to kuow from year to year the actual produce of his farm. Let everything, therefore, that can be measured and weighed, be measured and Weighed; arid let that which can not be brought to an exact standard be estimated as if he himself were about to sell or purchase it. Let him likewise, as near as possible, measure the ground on which hd plants,- the quantity of seed which he uses, and the manure which he applies. The labor of doing this is nothing compared with tho satisfaction of having done it, and the benefits' which must arise from it. Conjecture in, these cases, is perfectly wild and uncertain, varying often, with differ cut individuals, almost a hundred per cent. Exactness enables a man to form conclusions which may most essentially, and in innumerable ways, avail to hi3 advantage. It is that a.lnnft 'nrhirdi nan ;:c4M.y4JluQ .iot-iifsi- experiencc;ut is that which will make his experience thesure basis of improve ment; it will put it in his power to give safe counsels to his friends, and it is the only ground on which he cari securely place confidence in himself. Wearing of Artificial II air. ' There is nothing new under the sun, else would not Clement of A lexandria," who lived in the beginning of third century, have written as follows con cerning chignons: "Additions of other people's hair are entirely to be rejec ted, aud it is a mos't sacrilegious thing for spurious hair to"shade the Kiead, covering the skull with dead locks. For ou whom does the Presbyter lay his hands? Whom does he bless? Not the woman decked out, but anX other's hair, aud through them an other head. And if the man is head of the woman, and God of the man, how is it not impious thatr they should fall into double sins? For "they de ceive tha mea by the excessive quantity of their hair; and shame the Lord as far as in them lies, by adorning themselves meretriciously, in order to dissemble the truth. And they de fame the head, which is truly beau tiful." " m m Til i! Dead Lady Brought to Life. An interesting dnd astonishing event transpired on the 22d ult., at the house of Mr. George Chandler, a farmer living near the Lowell road, be tween Nashua and Tyngsboro, Mass. A physician, Dr. Stroinski, stopped oct the afternoon of the day mentioned at Mr. C.'s house to feed his horse. On entering the house, Mrs. Chandler in formed tho doctor that. her daughter Sunau died on Saturday, and that the b'odv had been placed in a coffin for in terment on Sunday. The doctor, ori looking into the coinn, remarked that the girl was not dead, but only ia afit; He ordered the removal of the' tody and placed it in a warm bath. After a long struggle, the girl was brought to life. After leaving some medicine the doctor took his departure. Oa the fol lowing day the one assigned for the' funeral the resuscitated lady voided a tape worm measuring twenty-eight feet in length ; and msteadot burying Aiiss SuSan Chandler, the parents interred the cauuse of all her troubles. -o . m Beautiful. When the summer of youth is slowly wasting away into uightfall of age, and the shadow of the pact year grows deeper and deeper, and life wears to its close, it is pleasant to' look back through the vista of iima upon the sorrows and felicities of 6ur early years'. If we have a homef W shelter us, and hearts to rejoice itH us, acd friends gather together around firesides, then the rough places of otff wayfaring will h'ave been worn' and smoothed away in the twilight of life; while the suuny spots kwe have pass ed through will grow brighter and nvore beautiful.
