W. J. SLATTER. "Pledged to no pirty'a irbltrery awiy, ' we follow truth where'er ihe leads the we y." WINCHESTER: FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 15, 1857. A locomotive between St. Louis and Springfield, a day or two ago, got attached to the wire of the telegraph line which a storm of wind had thrown down, and away it went on its course, teaiing down the poles for a distance of two miles, iand keeping up a most tremendous crash (and clatter, as one after another camo tumbling down end were added to the queer retinue of the train. The Iocomo tive arrived in town in good time, and the engineer then first discovered that he had tho lightning line behind him. JJaF" What more precious offering can be laid upon the altar of a man's heart th8n tho first love of a pure, earnest, and affectionate girl, with an undivided inter est in eight corner lots, and fourteen three story houses?" EST The following advertisement ap peared in a New York paper: $100,000.-1 being old, will give my son, a fine young man, aged twenty-four, $100,000, provided some respectable man will give his daughter, a sensible lady, to him in wedlock with $25,000. Mu tual affection of course. This is a sincere proposal. His property can be made worth $700,000 Address Junius, Herald office, for explanation. Good reason. The late springs produce tlift great est plenty. Ex. If that bp. true, what a plentiful sea son we'll have this year ! fi" The Milton Chronicle (N. C) observes, Speaking of "Yankee Doo dle," reminds us that wo would like to see the man who could vote for disunion with a dean face, under tho sound of this tune, when well played by a brass band. We second that. Nor do we believe such can be found in the length end breadth of this and that is, in n same slate of mind! When men arc together, they listen to one another, but women and girls look at one. anot her. Ex. And when men and women are to gether, they bolh look at and listen to one another. The Paris Moniteur Florget gives the details of the arrest and interrogatories of the Chinese baker who was executed for poisoning bread at Hong Kong. He sta ted that he acted agreeably to tho orders of the Viceroy, brought him by a satellite of the mandarins. The orders informe Allum, the baker, that the English having declared war, it was his duty to assist in their destruction; that the soldiers usect ..... i fire and sword to fight them, and he was to use poison. If he disobeyed these or Aa U'ta farm lv At Canton would be uciae thrown into prison and his property con fiscated. He made two kinds of bread, one poisoned for the English, which was unintentionally given to other loreigners and another kind only for the Chinese. 4 Wht is it? More property is destroy' ed by fire every year in the United States than in all the rot of tho world. QS The London Times acknowledges that there is a better hotel in Chicago, 111., than iii London. The operatives or the United State. The condition ol the employ ecrs of this country is so different from that of those in Europe, in many re spects, that they appear a different class in reputation and dignity. Among the best organized are those professing the "Art of Arts" the Printers. t The organization of the Typographical Society stands pre-eminent among its fellow trades. Though now in its infancy- some five or six years old it is firmly establish ed as a national body, and holds reg ularly its annual conventions, at which the most friendly relations Are ex changed between the delegates from every State, and harmonious action on cverv subject is the consonance. We hhould be glad to see the ppera tives, generally, hold this independent and dignified position as trades throughout the Union. Union is strength, and unless tho working classes unite to protect themselves in every legitimate and laudable endeav or for tho benefit and elevation of their respective callings, they cannot expect to rcalizo that independence which is their inalienable birthright. Prooress of Religion. The "Presby terian Critic" has an article from the Rev. Dr. Stuart Robinson, in which it is sta ted that "after a careful comparison and summing up of the religious statistics of the various denominations, the Evangeli cal bodies of tho United States now num ber thirty thousand ministers, four mil lions of church members, sixteen million and a half connected by education and sympathy with them, seventy millions an nually raised for the support of ordinan ces ot home, four millions for the spread of the church abroad, and twelve mil lions of sittings in their houses of worship. In this cstimateno account is taken of the many millions of dollars invested in schools, colleges and seminaries, under the control of Evangelical denominations. Thus it appears that, out of a population estimated at twenty six and a half milions, nearly two thirds of the whole are mem bers in full communion or under the dirert influence of Evangelical churches. The Printer. The Belfast Mercury gives the following in relation to prin tcrs: From high to low, they are the same careless, lighthearted, clever, well-in formed, reckless fellows, knowing how lo act better than they do nothing at times everything tl the nt taKes them. No sooner are they comforta ble in one town than thevmake tracks for another, even though they travel on "hair space" means. And lo what will they not turn their hands? Yv have seen, says an American editor, one and ihe same individual of the craft a minister in California, a law yerin Missouri, a sheriff in Ohio, a boatman on a Western Canal, sailing privateer, an auctioneer in New York, and a pressman in a large print ing office. Nor are -they characters confined to any one country they are everywhere the same. We have met them as lecturers, actors, trave.ing preachers, ventriloquists in fact ev erything. We have met on tramp in this country members of this roving profession from all parts of the globe -Frenchmen, Spaniards, Portuguese Germans and Swedes and all appar ently as much at home as in their own country. Ardent lovers of liberty king-craft and priest find but little in their eyes. They are always with the people. When the Chartist excite ment was raging in England, the most eloquent leaders in the. movement wen? printers. When barricades m were raised in Paris in '48, the com positors cast their type into bullets and fired them at the royalist troops. When the Americans were at war with Mexico, Gen. Taylor had a regi ment composed almost entirely of prin ters, and they were the bravest of his troops. James Buchanan, the newly elected President, and a large number of the leading men of the Union, are printers. Dr. L. F. W. Andrews, editor of the Georgia Citizen, has been sued for libel to the tune ot 20,000 lor publishing the name of a subscribe! who had moved off without paying his subscription dues. jjgf The wise man does not speak of all he does, but he does nothing that can not be spoken of. An Jsferewce. An editor speaking of a steamboat says: She had twelve berths in ber ladies' cabin. "Oh life of me!" exclaimed Mrs. Partington, upon reading this, "what a quailing there must have been!" Col. Forhet. It is stated that Col. Forney hai purchased one-fourth of n . . l. I.

A DOLLAR OR TWO. If there are any who would deny the poetry of the following "bit," there can be no ono to discredit its truth. As it is not old, we insert it for the benefit of those who have not seen it: As with cautious steps, we travel our way thro' This intricate world, as other folks do, May wo allonouriourneybeabletoview, The benevolent lace ol a dollar or two.

A Beautiful Extract. Thero lies in tho depths of every heart that dream of our j'outh, and the chastened wish of manhood, which neither cares nor honors can ever extinguish, the hope of one day resting from the pursuit which absorb us; of interposing be tween our old age and the tomb some tranquil interval of reflection, when with feelings not subdued but soften ed, with passion not exhausted but mellowed, we may look calmly on the past without regret, and on the future without apprehension. But io the tu mult of the world, this vision forever recedes as we approach it; the pas sions which have agitated our life dia tnrb our latM hMirs; and wr gdomi to the tomb, like the sun in th ocean, with no gentle and gradual withdraw-) in of tho lieht of life back to the source which gave it, but sullen in its!'"an who as not th? 80ul ftf honor. beamlcss descent, with all its fiery glow, long after it has lost it' power and its splendor. The Power of a Comma. In tha ptt -ory of Rumessa, thero dwelt a prior who was very liberal, and who caused those lines to bo written over his door: "He open ewrmort, 0 thou my door, Ta none be ibut, to honent or to poor." But afterhis death another succeeded him, whose name was Raynhard, as.jreedy and covetous as the other was bountiful and liberal, who kept tho same linos there still changing nothing therein but one point, which made them run after this manner, "Be open evermore, 0 thou my door, To none, be ehut to honest or to poor." Afterwards, being driven from thence for hia extreme niggardliness, it grew into a proverb, that for one point Raynhard lost his priory. THE TRUE WOMAN. The true- woman, for whose ambi tion a husband's love and her chil dren's adoration are sufficient, who applies her military instincts to the discipline of her household, and whos:; legislative faculties exercise them selves in making laws for her nur sery: whose intellect has field enough for her in communion with her hus band, and whose heart asks no other honors than his love and admiration; a woman does not think it a weakness to attend to her toilet, and who does not disdain to be beautiful; who be lieves in the virtue of glossy hair, and well fitting gown?, and eschews rents and raveled edges, slipshod shoes, and audacious make-ups; a woman who speaks low and does not speak much; who is patient and gentle, intellectual and industrious, who loves more than she reasons, and yet does not love blindly; who never scolds, and rarely argues; but who adjusts with a smile; a woman who is the wife wo have all dreamed of in our lives, and who is the mother we still worship in the backward distance of the past; such a woman as this does more for human n 1 nature and more tor woman s cause than all the captains, barristers, judges and members f the parliament put. together God given, God blessed as she is DickF-ifr, N 1 . - JJ" A deaf person, by watching the motion of a speaker's lips, can under stand what one is saying. We heard of s Quaker woman who was deaf, who used logo regularly to meeting, and, without hearing a single word, could repeat what was said. One day she came homo without being able to piva anv account of the discourse. Her o- - - - vision was injured; and, when asked in relation to the exercise, she replied. "I can't tell anything about it, I went to meeting and forgot my spectacles." Hazel-Eyed Girls. Major Noah said that "a hazel eye inspires at first a platonic sentiment, which gradual ly but Burely expands info love as se curelv founded as the rock of Gibral- rf . tarl" 4 A woman with a hazel eye never slopes from her husband, never chats scandal, never sacrifices her hus band's comfort to her own, never finds fault, never talks too much or two lit tle, always is an entertaining, intel lectual, agreeable and lovely creature.

BASHFUL MEN. uv mrs. ph rmso':;. Wo never yet saw a genuinely bashful Though such may blush and stammer, end shrug their shoulders awkwardly, un able to throw forth with ease the thoughts that they would express, yet commend them to us for friends. There are fins touches in their charac ters that timo will mellow and bring out preceptiona as delicate as the faintest tint is to tho unfolding rose; and their thoughts oro nono tho less icfined and beautiful, although they do not flow with the impetuosity of the shallow streamlet. We aro astonished that such men are not appreciated; that ladies with really good hearts and cultivated intellects will reward the gallant Sir Mustachio Brain less with smiles and attention.becausehe end fold a shawl gracefuly and bandy com pliments with Parisian elegance, while they will not condecend to look upon the worthless man who feels for them' a rev erence so great that every mute glance ie wo'ship. The man who is bashful in the presence of ladies is their defender when the loose tongue of ulander would defame her; it is' not ho who boosts of conquest, or dares to talk glibly of failings that exUt in hia imagination alone; his cheek will blush with resentment, his eye flash with angr, to hear tho name of woman coupled wtih a coarse oath; and yet he who would die to defend them is least honored by the majority of our sex. Who ever heard of a bashful libertine? The anomally was neverseen. Easo and elegance are his requisites; upon his lips sits flattery, ready to pay court alike to blue eyes and black; he is never a nonplus, he never blushes. For a glance he is in raptures; for a word he would professed ly lay down his life. Yet it is ho who fills our vile city dens with wrecks of female purity; it is ho who profanes the holy name ofmother; desol ates tho shrine where domestic happiness is throned; ruins the heart that trusts in him; pollutes tho very air he breathes, all under the mask of a gentleman. Ladies, a word in your ear; have you lovers, and would you possess a worthy hrraband? Choose him' whose delicacy of deportment, xvhose ense of your worth leads him to stand aloof, while other crowd around you. If he blushes, stam mers oven at your approach, consider them so many signs of exalted opinion of your sex. If he is retiring and modest, let not a thousand fortunes weigh him down in tha balance, for depend upon it with him your life will bo" happier with poverty than with many another surrounded by splendor of palaces.
