Norwich, December, 1349. E.
From the eu York Hermld, lltk.
On Saturday evening the steamship Herman, captaiu
Crabtree, arrived iu our port from Bremen-haven iu Germa
ny, Raving on board General Couut Ujhazy, the late civil
governor of Comorn ; Mine Apolenia Jagello, aud other dis
tinguished refugees from Hungary. We weut early on board,
J esterdsy, morning, to meet ihem and accompany them to
e Irving and Astor Houses, where they had been invited to
take up their quarters.
Here we were introduced to the noble refugees and had the
pleasure of ttking tliem by the hand. The Governor, La
dislas Ujhasy (pronounced Wehazy,) is a venerable looking
Id man, apreully about 60 years of age. He wears a
long flowing grey beard, and has a singular striking- aud vene
rable appearance. His manners are simple, unaffected and
unostentatious ; yet he is a nobleman by birth, and was the
possessor of a large hereditary fortune, ihe greater part of
which has been siesed upon and confiscated by the Austriau
government. His lady and daughters are like himself in
meaner simple and nnpreleuding tho' belonging, by birth,
habits and education, to the highest class of European aris
We were much pleased with the personal appearance and
manners of Mis Apolonis, the Hungarian heroiue, who, as
rumor reports, has fought iu many a battle for the liberties of
Hungary. She is at the Irving House. She is a fine, bloom
ing, handsome young lady, about twenty-four or twenty-five
years ef age, of pleasiug address aud manners, with a fine
color on her cheeks, and quite femeuine and lady-like in her
manners. No one would suspect on seeing her, that those
'tlicaie hands, enshrouded in delicate white kid jjlovea,
anv-ifam slender form, had ever been seen dashing among the
crow,r combatants on ihe field of battle, mounted as a hus
sar ou h..back, and dealing out wounds and death to the
enemy with flushing; sword in hand. She seemed herself
quite unwilling - admit the fact, or speak upon it, yet she
showed us her har jacket. iu which she was attired.
She would not, hower te, U8 how many men she had kill
ed. We learned from otnr sources, however, that her
chief participation in the Hungarian war had been at the
hetd ef one of the military wiepitals, where, with her own
hands, she had waited upon and wounded, and had
nursed and taken care of litem wJ, all a woman's tender
ness. We also learut that she had ou:-fol)rht when driven
by necessity, on tne approach ol the enenv to the citv of
renin, auu uiou sue urru upou inem i rum we window, and
en several occasions mounted on horse-back and Moisted to
drive them from the place. She together with her fellow
refugees, on stopping at Southampton, in England, was
much noticed, as we were informed, by the gentry of the
place ; and the ladies of the town of Southampton vied with
each other in showing honor and respect to them all, inviting
tnem to tnetr nouses. Where is there a geneious people who
have not felt eymp-tthy and admiration for the brave Hunga
rians ' aud the ttuglish are unquestionably among the for-iut-of
gr-nerees-peopter - . . ,-
The Governor ef Comorn whs accompanied by his lady,
two dauirhters and four sons. Of his family, three were
mere cdildren, of unripe years, not yet able fully "io appre
ciate the loss of country, home, fortune, title, connections
all lost to them. We were much interested with the appear
ance, manner and behaviour cf the whole family; and es
pecially the unconscious children attracted our sympathies,
for they seemed rather to enjoy the excitement of the nov
elty of their situation, and their advent into a new world.
To these poor little creatures all the change, vicissitude and
adversities of their family, were, in their innocence and igno
rance, good fun," and we doubt not they enjoyed it bet
ter thau they would have done had they remained at home,
to go to school, and live in the regular monotony of daily life,
uninterrupted by the shock of empires, the collisions of mighty
armies, the revolutions of nations. Happy innocence ! happy
ignorance of youth ! happy carelessness ! Our troubles com
mence soon enough ; let us, then, protract, as loug as we
can, ihe days of simplicity and enjoyment. We addressed
these interesting children in Latin, as that was formerly the
language of Hungary, which all their youth were educated to
speak, and which was s(okeii iu their legislative halls and
courts of justice ; but the mother answered for them, and said
they did not understand it. Kossuth, among the many re
forms of which he has beeu the iustigator, has also succeeded
in causing the use of the Latin language to be abandoned,
and the guttural Magyar tongue, as more national, to be sub
stituted iu its place. The Governor conversed a good deal in
Magyar, the genuine Hungarian language, and we could
perceive it was a tongue not destitute of harmony and force,
from the ease and richness with which it flowed from the lips
of thoee who spoke it. Meautime the two little ones, uncon
scious ef their parents' and their country's disasters, played
about the grand saloon of the Hotel, smiling, laughing aud
admiring the crowd of visiters and spectators the beginning
of new world and second life to them iu a new hemisphere.
We were much, interested with the accounts we heard of
the siege of Comorn, in which the gallant Governor, the brave
Klapka, the gallant Pragay figured so largely before Europe
and the world. They bravely held out a long time against
the combined forces of Austria and Russia, with all their im
posing artillery, and only yielded at last on houorable terms
terms which were strongly expressive of the bravery of the
besieged and the fears of their enemies. At one time, to
wards the close of the siegn, the famine raged severely a
rnong these last aud bravest relics of Hungarian indepen
dence. The price of a goose, at this period, rose to the in-
cradihlq sum qf.fort vA msriran
ed chicken sold for fifteen doll
XM.re iu . m.lh.lf-.l.r..
tteen dollars. Jb.ven rats and mice had
their value, and sold for considerable sums, so great was the
want of food in the besieged place. They were more happy
who parted with their money to obtain a mouthful of food,
i than thoee who filled their purses with the high price. We
were told of a man, rich and fond of money, who sold the
last mouthful he had for sn immense sum, and perished for
rant in the midst of his treasures, wishing, wheu it wss too
late, to have parted with all his wealth, for only oue day's
mere existence so far more valuable is life thau money, and
90 incapable is money of prolonging life.
We heard with horror of the numerous cruelties and atro
cities of which the triumphant Austrians were guilty over
the conquered fo conquered, not by Austrian bravery ; no
nor yet even conquered by the overwhelming force of the Rus
sians, but conquered, sold, betrayed by the base and sordid
mind of the traitor Georgey, who, for tho sake ol personal
wealth end abundance of gold, sold to the enemy the army
which had been confided to him, and the people who had
placed confidence in hie integrity. We read iu the Bible of
- the croelty of Herod, and, as we read it, are tempted to
believe such atrocity impossible. Little did we think that, in
the nineteenth century in the heart of civilized Europe In
what is called a Chriatiau country, and by those who call
them selves a Christian- people worse and more wanton era
elties and atrocities have been perpetrated. We were told
ot 300 infants in one Hungarian city, on the borders of
Wallackia. who were taken and butchered by the Austrian
soldiers. They took them from their mother's arms, and put
them to death in the most wsnton manner, holding the little
innocents by the feet, and dashing their brains out against the
walla ef their parents' houses, and in some eases throwing
them into holes in heaps alive, aud burying them alive. The
Russians, it eaid, were not half so brutal and cruel as the
Auetnene, after or before their treacherous conquest.
The following is the nomenclature ef our amiable and dis
tinguished guests:
Ladielaa Ujhazy, late Civil Governor of Comorn.
Theresa Uthazv, his lady.
Clara and Ilka Ujhasy, their two daughters, Clara about
twenty-five. Ilka eleven years of a ere.
Wolfang, Theodore und Ladislas, their three sons, the two
former grown up tine young men, captains in tne Hungarian
service, the latter a child ten years or age.
Anolouia Jagelio, ev Polish lady by birth, who has been
devoted to the Hungarian cause, having waited upon the dy-
nsr and wounded iu the hospitals, and tired at the enemy
when she had a chauce, aud pursued them on horseback,
sword in ha id, when she.had an opportunity.

The Senators have wisely concluded not to wait for
the organization of the House. They have gone to work
upon Executive business. Nominations, treaties, &c.,
are now before them, and the prospect is that they will
have an abundance of tune for the dispatch of all the
business of this kind before the House is organized.
The House is in a most deplorable condition. I here is
no crospect of its immediate organization, akhousrh more
than two weeks have been spent in balloting, debating
and righting. The only real progress that has yet been
made was the vote of Thursday last, that cut on all de
bate. It is to be regretted that this resolution had not
passed in the beginning, that, for the sake of our national
character, we might have been spared the debate of
Thursday last, and the scenes that grew out of it. It
was utterly disgraceful from beginning to end. The
threats of the Southern members to withdraw from the
House, and leave it without a quorum for the transaction
f business, in the event of the passage of the Wilmot
Proviso, will undoubtedly be carried into execution.
The end is not vet. Aurora.
To keep a Stove as bright as a Coach-body, bt
two Applications a Year. Make a weak alum water,
and mix your ' British Lustre" with it, perhaps two
teaspoons to a gill of alum-water: let the stove be cold,
brush it with the mixture, then take a dry brush and
dry lustre, and rub the stove till it is perfectly dry.
Should any part, before polishing, become so dry as to
look grey, moisten it with a wet brush and proceed as
Ixjafers at the Mines Honestt. Theie is a set of
loafers constantly going round with pans and pickaxes'
on thier backs, "prospeoing," as they call it. but in real-
ity pretending to look for gold and praying to the Lord
that they may not find it. On due deliberation, my
party cf four started out "prospecting," too, and luckily
stumbled on a little El Dorado, where we easily took
out two ounces per day, and where I should now be, but
for a giant in the shape of dysen'.ery. which has brought
nie here again and laughs at my longings for the dura
illia messarurn of old Horace, or a fresh supply of Mrs.
Kidder's cordial. Two things I have learned at the
mines one to rock a cradle, and the ot'ier to be a capital
grave digger, for I have dug holes half way to New Zea
land. Every man able and willing to work, can get an
ample- remuneration for his labor but to feather bed
miners it is hard work. One thing at the mines struck
me as strange, viz. the great order and honesty that pre
vails. A pickaxe, or spade in a hole secures it to the
owner as much as a title deed, and I heard of but one
act of dishonesty during a stay of some weeks.

" Elopement from Massachusetts" Love and Dishones
ty. Officers Edwards and Smith, of the Third district po
lice, arrested, yesterday, a mau of genteel appearance, by the
name ot Allen ts. t -lough, ou a charge of being a fugitive
from Lynn, Massachusetts, where he stands charged with
having embezzled, from Atkiu Pierer aud Thomas, managers
of the New En. I nid Protective Union, Divisiou No. 46, the
sum of 1,200 in money, a check on the Bank of Lynn for
6C0 and iwo promissory notes, one for $13, and one for
iyjX!. in ihis society dough was the chief clerk and book
keeper, and was thought well of by the firm, who owned a
large country store. The accused was doiug well, aud re
sided happily with his wife and child, until within a few
months past, and would probably have continued to do so, but
tor the visit of Clough 's first cousin, a s'out, healthy-looking
young woman, of shout seventeen years of age, of good pro
portions and wt-ll-favo eJ. The visit was net of !ong duration
before an intimacy took place betweeu them of a very iru
proper character.
This secret attachment continued between them until
the 2eth of October, when Clough, prompted by the tempta
tions held out by his cousin, consented to elope w m her, and
abandon h s own wife. He did so, and in order to support
themselves in the evil passious of their hearts, Clough em
bezzled the sums of money, as above sta'ed. They left
Lynn together, went to Boston, passing for man and wife,
and from Boston they came to New York, arriving in this
city aboot the Zbth of October. On their arrival in this
city, they put up at Isaac's Hotel, iu Greenwich street, and
from there they went to board at 5UJ Orteuwich street.
Shortly after, Clough weut into business, by opening a bowl
ing saloon at No. 385 Washington street, and from that time,
he and his cousin paramour have boen sporting about from
one place of amusement to another, as man and wife, under
the names of Mr. and Mrs. Allen. A few days since, a let
ter was intercepted in Lynn, sent from this city by Clough,
to a friend, wishing to know all the news respecting his dis
appearance, and to direct a letter back to New York, under
the name of Llhan Allen. 1 he letter was sent accordingly,
and the above officers notified to watch tbe Post Office, in
order to arrest Clough when he called for the letter; bat by
some misunderstanding respecting the time, Clough called
tor and obtained the letter in the absence of the officers.
However, next day (yesterday) the officers, haying been
furnished with a daguerreotype likeness of Clough, espied
the gentleman in Broadway from the resemblance of the
likeness, and at once took him into custody. Ou information
beinsr given to the prisoner's cousin, or paramour, she im
mediately flew to the prison in ord-'r to shre a portion of
his troubles and incarceration, absolutely refusing to leave
the prison, and, ou permiaaioa of the magistrate, she was al
lowed to remain in the same cell with her 'beloved cousin.
she termetrutiii m .L .the miaou yesterday evening,
end there beheld this female locked in the arms or eiuuk,
and at the appearance of a stranger, she appeared to cling
firmer to his person, fearing that every moment he might be
torn trom her side. 1 his young woman states that she al
ways loved her cousin, and will now and forever remain
with him, notwithstanding the misfortune that has befallen
him. Justice Osborne committed the accused to prison to a
wait a requisition from the Governor of Massachusetts. N.

from New York, now in Washington City, proposes to con

carried on between these remote points with as much fidelity
as if the dinerent parties were in the a me room.

The tendency to migration is a powerful
instinct in many animals. Button says that
young quails, kept in cages almost from
birth, and which, could consequently neither
know nor regret liberty, experienced regu
larly, twice in a year, lor lour years, a sin
gular agitation and anxiety, at the custom
ary times of migration, that is in the months
of April and September. This uneasiness
lasted about thirty days each time, and re
commenced every day at ari hour before sun
set. The great Sphynx of Egypt represents
the head of a man, with the body of a lion,
carved out of one solid rock, it is one
hundred feet long and forty feet wide. The
head is twenty-six feet high, thirty-five feet
round, and fifteen feet from the ear to the
chin, the fore legs are fifty-seven feet long
from the breast to the extremity of the paws,
which are eight feet high, and the summit
of the head is sixty-five feet from the base.
The power of draught decreases as speed
increases, thus, if when moving at the rate
of two miles per hour, the force of a horse is
represented by the number one hundred; at
three miles per hour it will be eighty-one, at
four miles sixty-lour, at nve miles lorty-nine.
and at six miles thirty-six.
The plant called " Four o'clock" opens its
flowers every day at that hour. .
Starch, sugar, gum and lignum, or the
fibre of wood, are all composed of the same
elements, (carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen) uni

in their properties being due according to
chemists, to the different arrangement of their
atomic elements.
A negro, having purchased a hat, was oh
served to take it from his head, on the fall of
a shower of rain, and to manifest considera

being remonstrated with for his supposed stu

wittily observed, Hat belongs to me, head
