Summer Travel. — T he Philadelphia North 
Aflurvra.n contains a sensible article upon the 
subject of Summer travel. The advice which it 
con'ams is as well fitted for the meridian of 
Louisville as for that of Philadelphia. Those 
who leave our city for Summer absence, for the 
most part belong to the commercial classes, and 
the place* which they select to visit are chiefly 
seaboard watering places. 'Would it not be well 
to visit places nearer home, and to become ac- 
quainted with the local beauties of our State, and 
thus become familiar with people from whom we 
draw in a great part of our real business ! There 
are many pleasant places in Kentucky, Ohio, 
and Indiana, where the Summer weeks would 
paas away pleasantly, and at the same time im- 
portant acquaintances might be formed among 
the merchant* of the interior, which would re- 
sult in bringing to our city new customers, and 
in adding greatly to our material wealth

America and Europe. 

It is singular to observe how entirely the tone 
of the British press is changed toward America. 
Within the memory of the youngest man among 
us. the magaaincs. reviews and newspapers of 
that country were filled with abuse, denuncia- 
tions or ridicule of America and the American*. 
But recently the whole to ie of their rem .rks 
about this country is altered, and now there 
are not to be found terms strong enough to 
express John Bull's admiration for Brother Jona- 
than. This country, whether considered in 
reference to its topography or its geography, 
whether its inhabitants, its customs or its laws 
are referred to, receives the warmest approbation 
and applause of the English reviewers Even 
old Kit North before his death, had ceased to 
make fun of us. and was beginning to veer round 
toward the popular aide of the American ques- 
tion. The last number of the W'ttimxnttcr 
Renew contains an article on the Administrative 
example of the United States, which illustrates 
what we have said above. That article is very 
ably written and displays a knowledge of our 
institutions and an independence in comparing 
them with those of the mother country, which is 
alike creditable and remarkable. The imbecility 
of the present English administration is made 
the subject of comment, not only in the article 
referred to, but in many others of greater or less 
value and influen'e. Keeping up with the pro- 
gress of the age. the people of England have 
begun to think for themselves. They have refused I 
longer to give their adherence to governmental 
abuses because they are sanctioned by long 
custom. They have seen the inefficiency of the 
government, and they are beginning to enquire 
into the causes and seeking to find the cure for 
this defect. It is to this sober and sensible 
deliberation of the masses of the people that 
the friends of true republicanism look with 
earnestness and with hope. The doubt which 
once existed in the minds of many as to whether 
a nation is capable of self-government, has been 
forever eet at rest by the Americans. And the 
people of other countries look with interest at the 
spectacle afforded by this nation, and wonder if it 
would not be possible to enjoy such privileges a* 
are afforded to us. Every nation in Europe if wc ex- 
cept perhaps Turkey, has become more free and en- 
lightened since the American Republic was found- 
ed The people better understand their rights and 
interests, and are becoming more resolved to se- 
cure them when opportunity offers. Despotism 
can only exiet in'Europe now by the employment 
of a military force so large and expensive as to 
render despots bankrupt. Our prosperity as a 
nation, our exemption from heavy taxation, the 
credit of our government, our freedom and intel- 
ligence. arc teaching the masses of Europe a 
lesson dangerous to despotic rulers. America is 
the birthplace of those liberal ideas and free 
principles that are spreading slowly but suiely 
over the world, and yet will triumph over ancient 
error* and wrong and oppression. 

This affords us reason to congratulate ourselves 
upon what we have achieved, but it is far from 
being . ny cause for vainglorious boastfulness. It 
is a stimulus to exertion but not s cause for 
idle vanity. Ijet us refer to some i f the means 
by which we have attracted toward us the atten- 
tion of European nations The United States 
was the first nation to resist the tribute on Medi- 
terranean commerce imposed by the Corsairs of 
Barbary. In that resistance some few of our 
vessels were seized and plundered, and this out- 
rage was repaired by sending forward a naval 
‘ores which not only destroyed the ships of the 
Corsairs, but b nsbarded one of their chief cities. 
Since th n American vessels having passed free of 
tribute, and other nations followed our example, 
the Corsairs have entirely disappeared. 

Formerly, according to the laws of nations, the 
ships of neutral nations in time of war could be 
stopped and s 'arched anywhere on the high seas; 
and if found carrying the goods of a belligerent 
nation, could be seized aud confiscated. The 
United State* was the first nation to demand an 
amendment of international law in this respect. 
She demanded that “free ships should make free 
goods." Russia seconded the demand, and now 
the United States, Russia, Naples. Sardinia and 
Prussia agree upon the question, and England 
and F ranee have practically conceded it for the 
present war. 

The opening to commerce of the ports of 
Japan is another great movement of American 
energy which will result to the good of the 
whole civilised world. The right of an indi- 
vidual to transfer his allegiance from one country 
to another has also been gained by the United 
States. Europe has never insisted on the old 
rule, “ once a citizen always a citizen," since 
the protest made by America. She has also 
formally protested against a time honored c ustom 
existing in the Baltic Sea All merchant vessels 
entering the Baltic Sea are compelled to come to 
anchor under the guna of a Danish fort that 
commands the whole channel, and there be 
examined and taxed according to the value of her 
cargo. This tax must be paid or the ship cannot 
proceed. 

The Prussian government has immediately 
followed the lead of the United States in this 
matter. The Prussians declare it no better than 
the tribute levied of old by the Algerine pirates. 
England and France will doublets take the same 
side of the question, and, if so, it will be abolished, 
and thus another reform in the old world be ef- 
fected by the more liberal and just ideas of the 
American republic. 

These are a lew of the most prominent examples 
which we have given to the world of the power 
of a free people. Our complete success has ex- 
cited the attention of thinking men all over the 
world, and has led to the correction of many 
abuses and to the advancement of many prin 
ciples of good and truth. The writer in the 
Westminster Review spoken of above, com- 
plains of his government and institutes some 
comparisons between the plan of action there 
and in the United States which will be of interest 
to our readers. 

In speaking of the improper treatment of Eng- 
land to her colonies, this writer says : 

American emigrants subdue the wilderness, es- 
tablish theT own municipal institutions, coale see 
into a “Territory, rece.ve judges from the central 
executive, and dually, when their numbers reach the 
requisite point, can demand to be accepted into the 
Union as a constituent “State,” on submitting to a 
few broad ar.d nece-s&ry principles, notorious and 
universal. This point deserves the more attentior, 
because English Whigs throw dust into our eyes, by 
ascribing the superior well-being (which they cannot 
deny) of the American millions, to the abundance 
of unoccupied land. Why ’ in Canada and in Aus- 
tralia there is as little lack of land as in the Uni- 
te! States; but onr aristocratic cabinets at first 
jobbed it away in vast grants to favorites or to the 
church— so as to keep it wild and obstructive — and 
now either let it in wide tracts and refuse to sell, or 
sell it so arbitrarily that it is no resource to our 
poor. In this whole matter, it is by fairness, by 
publicity, by broad unchanging and judicious prin- 
ciple, tbst the Unite i States have produced so great 
results, aud Canada has begun to thrive, just in pro- 
portion as she has become emancipated from Eng- 
lish control. The cardinal point is, that the Amer- 
ican system promotes freehold cultivators, while 



our Colonial Office struggles to keep up rich land- 
lords, and indignant peasants or shepherds; work- 
ing for wages — that is the secret of the whole; onr 
nuers do not wish the lower classes to be indepen- 
dent. But thirdly, the Moral Movements in the 
United States are carried on with an energy 
to which there is no parallel in England. 
The very fanaticism which mixes itself np with 
the Abolitionists, te-tifies to the earnestness of their 
struggle. The war against intoxicating drinks 
( whatevermay he our auguries as to its final success,) 
is an evidem-e of the t iorougb -going doteraivation 
to strike at the root of mural mischeits, and lop off 
relentlessly even darling vices. The efforts of the 
Free States for National Education (about which we 
talk much aad do little) are unparalleled in all the 
world, and hold out a cheering hope of American fu- 
turity, in spite of the dark shadow which slavery 
casts. The courage with which all ridicule is de- 
spised. in the effort to open employments to females 
and qualify females for employments, deserves all 
honour; it will sustain the morality of the sex, and 
(except so far as foreign immigrmtioa mt rferes) pre- 
vent the formation or that curse of “Christian” Eu- 
rope— Parian castes in the great cities. Even now, 
the jails of the Fr e States have hardly any native 
born Americans as their inmates. Orphanhood of 
course mast exist; but orphans are adopted into 
families with a freedom rivalled, we believe, only in 
Turkey. These are specimens of moral energy in a 
community, which augur for it a splendid future. 

If this is the attitude which wc present to the 
world; if wc are to be the great moral instructors 
of mankind, the dispensers of the blessings of 
liberty, how carefully and zealously should we 
watch our own course; how earnestly should 
we endeavor to deserve the position which is be- 
ing awarded us, and how faithfully should we 
seek to avoid those petty contentions and bicker- 
ings which may lead to our ultimate destruction. 
Let us deserve to be an example to all the nation* 
of the globe, and firmly and manfully, with an 
unbroken front, push on the great work of re- 
forming a world. In view of such a destiny, 
how insignificant do our petty sectional and po- 
litical difficulties become.

The Lexiugton Races. 

The Spring meeting over the Association 
course, near Lexington, commenced Monday 

Our attentive “Bourbon” correspondent writes 
us that the race* opened with mile heats and re- 
peats for untried three year old*. Nine etarted 
The first heat was taken by Wat field’s filly, by 
th* dam of Lexington. John M. Clay’s Yorkshire 
colt won th* second and third heats, and conse- 
quently the race Time— 1 48*— 1 -46i— 1 49*. 

The attendance was good, and the week * sport 
promises to be very interesting. 

Another F ht Rack — Best Two Milks Ever 
Ron in Kentccrt. — Judging by the feats accom- 
plished on the turf at Lexington during the 
present meeting of the Jockey Association, we 
surmise that the day of fast horses and grand 
sport is returning to Kentucky. Our correspond- 
ent furnishes us with the following notice of yes- 
terday’s rrce. It will be seen that Harper’s 
■ 1 F rankfort has made the best two mile rat e 
ever accomplished in Kentucky, if our recollec- 
tion is correct : 

The race to-day was two-mile heats, purse 
8250, for all ages. There were four entered, and 
three started, Harper's “ Frankfort" winning the 
race in two heats — time, 3.43*, 3.39* — “Perrett,” 
the horse that made the fastest mile on record at 
New Orleans, strongly contending, and only beat 
a half length. W’arfield’s horse, out of “ Lex- 
ington’s” dam, was the other nag. 

A - ood crowd and a number of ladies were in 
attendance. 

tyThe Academy of Sciences in Paris have 
been investigating the causes which almost inva- 
riably make the west end of a city grow more and 
become more fashionable than the east. “It 
arises from the atmospheric pressure," answers 
the Academy of Science. The wind which 
causes the greatest ascension of the barometric 
column is that of the east, and that which lowers 
it most is the west. When the latter blows, it 
has the convenience of carrying with it to the 
eastern parts of a town all the deleterious gases 
which it meets in its passage over the western 
parts, and the inhabitants of the eastern part of 
a town have to support not only their own smoke 
and miasma, but those of the western part of the 
town, brought to them by the west winds. When, 
on the contrary, the cast wind blows, it purifies 
the air by causing to ascend the pernicious ema- 
nations which it cannot drive to the west. The 
deduction from this law is that the western part 
of a city is the best place of residence for persons 
of delicate health, and that all establishments 
from which emanate pernicious vapors and gases 
should be placed to the east. There seems to be 
good philosophy in these conclusions. 

Mr. Robert Wickliffe Wooley’s Speech 
— This young gentleman, who is the anti- 
American candidate for Attorney General, dis- 
coursed a large and miscellaneous audience at 
the Cour’.-house last evening. We had thought 
the character of the weather yesterday exceed- 
inglv firery, but it was in no wise comparable to 
the intemperate passion and heat with which 
Mr. W. denounced the principles of the Ameri- 
can party. In the matter of his speech there 
was nothing remarkable nor novel. Its argu- 
ments, if they can lie so designated, we have the 
misfortune to meet daily in scores of anti-Amer- 
ican exchanges. Their repetition upon the 
plat form by public speakers is little better there- 
fore than causing a nuisance. Yet so it is, that 
stump orators niU6t after all seek in the news- 
papers the bases for all their tremendous efforts 
during political canvasses 

Ststr Bank or Indiana. — The Commission- 
ers appointed by the last Indiana Legislature to 
organize a new State bank, were in session in 
Indianapolis last week. They located branches 
at the following, among other places: 

Indianapolis, New Albany, Fort Wayne, Mad- 
ison, Connersville. Bedford, Lima, I^fayette, and 
Laporte. 

The amount to be subscribed at each Branch, 
for the purpose of its organization is 8100,000. 
After a sufficient number of branches are orga- 
nized, each appoints a member of the board of 
directors to manage the affairs of the whole. 

Each branch is mutually responsible for the li- 
biiities of all others and the stockholders are also 
individually responsible for the liabilities of all the 
branches. 

After the central board of directors is organized, 
that board will authorize an increase of the capi- 
tal of each branch to such an amount as may be 
deemed appropriate, wtthin the limit prescribed by 
the charter, which authorizes an aggregate capi- 
tal not exceeding 86,000,000 for all the branches. 

The Virginia Election. — On Thursday next 
the great political contest in Virginia will be 
brough*. to a close. On that day the voters of 
the “ Old Dominion ’’ will be called upon to make 
choice of a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, At- 
torney General, Commissioner of Public Works, 
members of Congress, and members of both 
branches of the State Legislature. At the last 
Governor's election, in 1851. when 127,713 votes 
were polled, the Democratic majority in the State 
was 7,141, and at the Presidential election, in 
the succeeding year, when the aggregate vote 
reached 129,545, the Democratic majority went 
up to 15,281. At the latter election, the Whig 
vote was 3,154 less than at the Governor's elec- 
tion, while the Democratic vote was 4.966 more. 
The probability is that at the election on Thurs- 
day next the vote of the State will be larger 
than on any previous occasion. 

Tzmperakcr in Indiana. — The eighth annual 
session of the Indiana Grand Temple of Honor 
has just been held in Indiana. The attendance 
was unusually large, and we are informed that the

tion of the order. The following are the officers 
elected for the ensuing year:

Breadstuffs from California. — A cargo of 
wheat and flour ia about to be shipped from San 
Francisco to New York. The clipper ship Char- 
mer is up at San Francieeo, for New York; 9,000 
tons of wheat and flour have been engaged at 
$16 per ton, at which rate she will probably fill 
up. A San Francisco letter says: 

Some of the holders of Chili flour offered to 
sell the balance of their stock at $4 per barrel, 
to any party who would engi.ge to ship it out 
of the country. The whole stock of Chili flour 
is now about 70,000 barrels (in sacks;) of all other 
kinds 130,000, or its equivalent in wheat. Total 
of present available stock, 200,000 barrels of 
wheat and flour.

River News. 

The Rives was at a stand yesterday, with five 
feet five inches water in the canal by the maik last 
evening. On the falls there were 3* feet water in 
the pas?. Daring the 24 hours the riser bad risen 
an inch, ihe weather again yesterday was unu- 
sually warm, the thermometer in the shads ranging 
high up in the eighty *. 

The water in the upper Ohio Is scant, with le«* 
than aix feet at Pittsburg. A portion of the fleet 
of coa; boats that started out. in tow of steamers, 
had reached Cincinnati, and it ia to be hoped that 
the Jas. Guthrie , destined for this port. Will arrive 
without delay . She has some 60,000 bushels In to>w. 

Along the lower Ohio navigation continues unres- 
trieted, and oar large packets are enabled to pass 
along without jumping the sand bars. 

The Foreign New*. 

M e publish this morning the lull details of the 
news by the Baltic. Probably the most impor- 
tant news is the attempted assassination of the 
Emperor of France. Pianori, the assassin, has 
contributed almost as much to the new greatness 
of Napoleon as \ ictoria. Sevastopol is yet in 
“ statu quo." The ammunition of the allies is 
exhausted! The French have taken some unim- 
portant Kussian outworks. If there has been any 
change in the state of the combatants, that 
change is in favor of Russia. The allies are as 
badly off as ever. The bombardment has accom- 
plished nothing. In view of all this, Napoleon 
has determined to defer his visit to the Crimea, 
and has gone twice to the Opera instead. Lard 
John Russell has returned and told the history of 
the \ ienna Congress. It is rumored that there 
will be a new congress. Popular excitement 
runs high in England against the ministry. Meet- 
ings are being held and resolutions passed against 
the aristocratic system and condemnatory of the 
imbecile ministry. 

In view of the news by the Baltic, it is quite 
safe to :epeat the prophecy mace by the New 
5 ork Tribune , on the advent of the last steamer, 
that the seige at Sevastopol will be raised. 

A Xu* for Abolitionists. • 

A few weeks since two negro slaves, the pro- 
perty of Jas. Shawhan, of Harrison county, 
escaped from their master, and took passage by 
the underground railroad for the North. After 
being in Canada a short time, they wrote Mr. 
Shawhan imploring him to send them money that 
they might return to the “old Kentucky home.” 
Their lot in that reputed place of liberty was 
reputed as being one of the greatest poverty and 
degradation. Their master immediately set out 
after them, found hia men in Canada, very anx- 
ioua to return. But the Abolitionist* got wind of 
the affair. It would not do, so they thought, to 
allow living witnesses to go South and testify to 
the abject condition of the free negro at the 
North. A mob was therefore gathered and the 
slaves compelled to remain. 

Wc especially commend this nut to the Aboli- 
tion writer* of the New York Tribune. 

The Great Floorina Mill on tbe Falls— New 
Lowell. 

We wish t* invite general attention to tlic 
great flouring mill erected at the lteadof the 
Falla, by the enterprise of Messrs. Smith &. 
Smyaer, of thia city. A brief visit to the es- 
tablishment will fully convince every one that it 
is the most substantial, thorough, complete, and 
unique flour mill in the United States. In point 
of size, as well as durability, it also stands un- 
rivalled. It is founded on the solid rock, the bed 
of the river, and towers up on the river aide to 
the height of 100 feet. Its walls are built of the 
most solid masonry, the stone and brick work all 
cemented with the best water lime cement, which 
defies the ac'ion of the water as well as time. 
This unequalled mill, to be brief, required eighteen 
months in its construction, at a cost of $65,000, 
and on the first of January, of the present year, 
it first commenced operations, with a single pair 
of stones, but when in full operation five pair 
will be used, with a daily demand for fifteen 
hundred bushels of wheat to keep it in operation. 

The motive power of this mill is the water of 
the falls of the Ohio, just where it daahea with 
irresistable force through the Indiana chute. The 
mill race was excavated at an immense cost of 
time, labor, and money, from the solid limestone 
that forms the bed of the rapida. The wheels are 
on an entire new principle, being similar to the sub- 
merged propellers used in war steamers, working 
an immense upright shaft, the base of which is 
sunk fifteen feet through the solid rock. The 
entire machinery of the mill ia worked or 
revolved by this shaft, which axtonJs its power 
from the bed of the river to the very roof of the 
building, the whole moving with the evenness and 
regularity of clock-work, and with irresistablc 
and untiring power. As long as the waters of 
the Ohio roll onward to the Gulf so mill the ma- 
chinery of the great mill perpetuate its action, 
and be an enduring monument of the energy, 
talent and enterprise of its builders. 

We arc not sufficiently versed in mechanics to 
to give a description of the machinery of Ntw 
Low ill, the name contemplated to be given to the 
mill site, but are well assured that in all its de- 
partments it is unexcelled anywhere by any mill 
in the country. All th' useful improvements of 
the age have been adopted in making it the most 
thorough manufactory of flour in the West. The 
proprietors are practical millers, who have devi- 
led their time and means to the fullest extent in 
perfecting the establishment, and no one who 
visiles the mill and sees it in operation, can doubt 
the result. The wheat is taken in at the base- 
ment, and by means of “elevators" is carried up- 
ward to the sixth story, where it is received in a 
vast reservoir. From thenci it is passed through 
the cleaning process, by which the wheat is com- 
pletely separated from the chaff, the machine 
used being Child’s Separator; not a grain other 
than good, sound, and perfect wheat being re- 
tained. which is then, by a process similar to 
that used in elevating, taken down to the grind- 
ing stones, through a round tube, instead of the old 
fashioned hopper. The lower portion of the tube, 
or receiver, is made of glass, through which the 
wheat is seen just before it passes between the 
stones. 

The flour as it comes from the mil! is worked 
through a trough, and from thence by means of 
elevators taken up to the upper story of the mill, 
where it is bolted or sifted through twelve bolting 
reels, and then it finds its way down to the sec- 
ond story', the bran, shorts, ship-stuff, and mid- 
iings all being separated and piled in different 
and distinct piles on the floor above, by an inge- 
nious process that must be seen to be fully ap- 
preciated. The pure superfine flour is neit 
forced into or through a self-regulating and act- 
ing packer, a new invention that winds and un- 
winds itself, and is capable of packing accurate- 
ly and neatly forty barrels flour per hour. All 
that is necessary to be done is to have one man 
to attend the machine, whose sole business is to 
place the barrel under the packer to receive the 
flour and then to replace it with another. By 
this plan 500 barrels of flour can be packed in a 
day without spilling a handful. 

Messrs. Smith &. Smyser’s flour store i* on 
Market street, above First, where they have a 
constant supply of their superior flour as well as 
all the differen' kinds of offal of the mill. They 
have been in operation since the 1st of January, 
and during the past week were making flour from 
wheat from Chicago, that cost them $2,00 per 
bushel. They will always be m the market buy- 
ing wheat, for which the farmers throughout 
Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio are informed that 
they pay the highest cash price for a good article, 
having a daily demand for fully fifteen hundred 
bushels to feed their mammoth mill. 

Mournful Catr or Suicide— Love. Intemperance 
and SaU'-Muruer. 

The Lafayette (lad.) American, of yesterday, hsg 
tbe following; 

Distressing Suicide in Looansport. — IVe are 
indebted to Ex -May or O'Brian, just returned from 
Logansport, for the following: On Friday evening 
last, a out dusk, Spencer Davis, a young man about 
twenty-five years old, nephew of the late Genera! 
Tipton, blew his brains out with a pistol, loaded with 
seven buckshot, under the following circumstances: 
He was a printer, and worked in the office of the 
Pharos, had for s me time past been addicted to hard 
drinking. He had b-en endeavoring to pay his ad- 
dresses to a young ladv named Baldwin, who resides 
on the island in tbe Waba9h,by whom his suit was 
rejected. On Friday evening he went to the gate of 
the house and called the young ladv, saying he 
wished to bid her good-bye, as he was going away. 
Upon coming ont, she perceived a pistol in his hand, 
which he was attempting to conceal behind him. 
She immediately ran into the house in great alarm, 
fastened the door, and sent a boy through a back 
window for her father, who soon arrived, and found 
Davis sitting upon the porch. As heentered the gate, 
Davis rose up, aud Mr. Baldwin perceiving a pistol 
in hia hand which he was in the act of raising, 
said to him, “ Davis, don’t hurt me.” Davis replied, 

“ No, Baldwin, I winldn't harm a hair of yonr 
head,” and immediately discharged the pistol into 
his own right temple. He fell, bleeding copionslv, 
with z horrid wound in the head, out of which 
the brains immediately oozed, but, nevertheless, he 
lived for several hours 

Young Davis has always been considered an 
amiable, harmless and good-hearted young man, 
and his funeral was attended by a large concourse 
of sympathizing friends.

Boston. Mat 23, P. M — There vra£ a prize fight 
between Biockwood and Macfc&y at daylight this 
morning, near Island Pond, Vermont. Mackny was 
winner. Blackwood U not expected to recover from 
the braises he received. 

In the Supreme Court this morning, Chief Justice 
Shaw delivered an opinion in the case of Joseph 
Hiss asking to be released from arrest for debt. The 
decision of the Court was that the House of Repre- 
sentatives, of which Hi** was a member, had the 
inherent light to expel Hiss, a-d, using that right. 
Hiss could not claim any privilege of exception, he 
was therefore remanded' to the custody of the jailor. 
I t The Board of Aldermen have appointed nine 
agents to sell liquor under the new law — two of 
them are grocers, and the rest are apothec .tries. 

Au examination of the first case under the new 
law is now going on in the Police Court. 

Tne Asia sailed at noon, with 181 passengers, for 
Liverpool, and §939,000 in specie. 

The account of the prize fight needs confimation. 
A despatch from Portland says that the pugilists 
passed through that city this morning on their way 
home, the authorities having prevented the fight. 



•n news of true Americanism The gentlemen 
wiioec names an signed to the document forget 
to te.i ns where they reside We have spent 
nearly a day in looking over our subscription books, 
v h.ot contain the names of more than ten thou- 
sand subscribers to the Conner, in the vain effort 
to ascertain their locality, and as we have no 
more leisure to devote to such purpose, we must 
ask them to furnish the required information 
So soon as they do so their request shall be com- 
put'd with, and as they arc gentlemen of such 
unquestionably liberal principles, we will take 
p .ensure in handing over to the Protestant Or* 
phan Asylums, in this city any sum that may be 
found to be due them. 

rbcir silly communication ti not worthy of a 
reply. It carries us own refutation si ith it. But 
that they may better be able to judge of the 
M ruons:rous propositions" of the American par- 
ty . we copy in another column this morning the 
platform of principles of the new party, to which 
we beg to direct their attention. They evidently 
arc so blindeu by prejudice, that they don't know 
wliai they are about . The gentlemen feel shaky 
ajout the knees, and seem to dread annihilation 
They need not feel uneasy in the slightest de- 
gree So far as they are concerned, we have to 
disposition to attempt "sarcasm" or “satire." 
They have a perfect right to discontinue their 
subscriptions to the Conner, although they have 
no right, while doing so, to misrepresent us . 
When reason resumes iu swsy with them, we 
are confi dent they will br luortihed at what they 
have done, and when they find by experience 
how much they miss by failing to receive the 
usual weekly visits of the Courier, they will not 
be * tiling to remain long without it. 

(Fromth* Louisville Democrat] 

To W. X. Ha demon, Editor Low. trill e Courier: 

Silt — The undersigned, subscribers to the paper 
poblishe.1 by you. desire its immediate discontinu- 
ance. The amount of mon y. whatever it may be, 
which the discontinuance of your paper will place 
to our credit an your books, you are at liberty to 
apply to some charitable purpose; but we protest 
ftga.n** the application of one -ingie cent to the dis- 
semination of the principles of the new oath -bound 
political organization yclipt “Know -Not iagism." 
which, like some hydra-headed monster, loom* 
gloomily from out midnight shadows and from out 
subterranean receaacs. in various portions of our 
heretofore happy confederacy, threatening the 
ps .ee, happiae s. and pro6perit*y of its people 

Ysu have become the facile organ of this party, 
while yoa *u«' know (tor you can’t shut your eye* 
to the fket. ) that iu aim conflicts with the guaran- 
ties of the federal compact and srith the plain let- 
ter of the constitution of Kentucky. Before you 
can proscribe a man for n-ligion’s sake .by statutory 
regulations or political edicts, or betcre you can 
withdraw from a S,ct< the privilege of regulating 
the tight of suffrage within its limits, you must re- 
model. not only the constitution of" the United 
States, but also the constitution of the various 
Slates wliidi compose the Union, or cine disreg rd 
their provisions. 

As Kentuckians, we desire to maintain the integ- 
rity of our State constitution We are satisfied 
with it as it is. We are specially pleased with that 
clause which accords perfect freedom of conscience, 
and with that provision which reqi.i.ea five years' 
probation and a ceod character from all foreign- 
born citizen*, before they can become entitled to 
the right of suff rage. Ve are opposed to the im- 
position of any religious test or disability whatever; 
and wbiie our emigrant population in Kentucky 
remain as orderly, intelligent, industrious, and as 
attached to the land of their adoption as they are 
at present . we do not wish to prolong their period 
of probation Above all, we wish no sacrilegious 
hand to be laid on the firdeial compact — that link 
which bolds as In the bonds of brotherhood with 
the integral portions of this powerful confederacy. 
Snc'i aa it is, h las conducted us. among the nations 
of the earth, to the summit of prosperity, gran- 
deur, and power, and we want no political tinkering 
with it now. 

We cannot recognise the exbttenoe of the last 
necessity to alter or amend the organic laws in 
force in the Commonwealth of Kentucky in regard 
to aliens, and iu regard to the right of suffrage. 
We have only one hundred foreign born voter? to 
thirty -five hundred native born voters. We make 
a compliance with tbe requisitions of the United 
States nat avalization laws a condition to the right 
of voting. 

An applicant for the rights of citizenship and 
suffrage in Kentncky must not only revoke all al- 
legiance to any foreign prince, potentate, or power 
whatsoever, and take au oath to maintain the con- 
stitution aud laws of tbe Plate in which he seeks 
citizenship, but he must also produce two respon- 
sible ir line tees to bear testimony to hit previous 
food character. 

Can't you see. then, the lolly of talking so glibly 
as you do about the political infinence (at least in 
Kentucky) of “foreign paupers" and '‘foreign jail- 
birds," as you politely characterize a portion of our

brilliant meteor passing over that place on Mon- 
day night week It passed in a northerly di- 
rection. about 20 degress above the horizon. It 
appeared at first with a bright, clear light then 
piarted in two large bodies attended with several 
smaller ones; a deep dea l light dropped from the 
mass, and fell into myriad fragments like living 
coals of fire, while a clear, bluish flame shot fur- 
w; rd and faded out aa it approached the horizoji, 
at a small angle, say f.om 10 to 15 deg ees. 

Buffalo is vet blockaded by the ice. On 

Thursday it was cloeely packed for ten miles or 
more, and in the Lake “floating islands" were 
scattered here and there for twenty miles. There 
is an ice-house feeling about the lower end of the 
Lake, and furs have not yet been snuffed or 
packed for summer The steamer Western

through the ice into Buffalo* and lost one hand 
overboard. 

A shrub has been discovered near San 

Antonio, Texas called guisachi. which bids fair 
to equal or supersede the Osage orange or Chero- 
kee rose for hedges in the South. The spines or 
thorns are more numerous and formidable than 
those of the Osage orange, which is a great de- 
sideratum in the formation of live fences. This 
subject is worthy of experiment bv all those who 
are situated near regions where tfiis plant can he 
obtained, and if successful it should be made 
known to the public.

An Important Rumor-Alleged Mediation of 
the United .Suttee in Enropo. 

Nfcrnl Correspondence of thi Buffalo Daily Republic. 

Wxshin'utox, Wednesday, May 16, 1845. 

I hasten to send you an important diplomatic se- 
cret which has just transpired, leaked out, in fort, 
very slyly, the particulars of which, however, art 
sti 1 confided to the limited circle of Cabinet and 
miai-terial council. The fact was hinted to me by a 

reliable friend, one w hose position in the De- 

partmeut renders his knowledge of the affair con- 
clusive. 

You will recollect that early during the last ses- 
sion of Congress, a memorial was presented from 
the Xew .York Chamber of Commerce requesting 
onr Government to offer its mediation to the belli- 
gerent poirers of Europe. The resolution was in* 
troduced by Mr Pawner in the Senate, on the 21s- 
of December, and by Mr. Clingman in tbe House, a 
few Jays before. Much discussion was elice'.ed, 
©socially in the House, b jt the matter was finally 
disposed of in a manner very unsatisfactory to the 
Senate, where it was secretly favored. The Presi- 
dent was also much in favor of tbe scheme, and it 
is said received assurances from the English, 
French, and even Russian ministers, that In case 
the different European conferences, from which se 
much was expected, should fail to establish a suita- 
ble basis for peace, the proposed mediation of the 
United States, if made at the proper time and in 
Ike proper manner, would be received with favor. 
Yon will also recollect that during the discussion of 
this measure it was proposed to appoint as com- 
missioners of arbitrators Ex-Presidents Van Bnren- 
Tyler and Fillmore, all gentlemen of large ex, 
perieuce and of decided ability in affairs of State. 

Previous to the adjournment of Congress the 
Senate held an Executive session, during which the 
matter was discussed at considerable length, and 
the President finally advised, if in his judgment the 
proper time should arrive during the vacation of 
Congress, to offer tbe proposed mediation, and re- 
quest the gentlemen above named to bold themselves 
in readiness to proceed to London, Paris or Vienna 
at short notice, to undertake the grave responsibili- 
ty. In pursuance of the arrangement, Mr. Van 
Bnren, who had previously been sojourning in Italy, 1 
repaired to London in order to be in readiness to 
meet his confreres, and on his passage thither, 
while resting a few hours in Paris, was unceremo- 
niously ('ailed into the presence of Louis Xapolean, 
in hi /traveling dress, and a long consultation had 
upon a subject of very great importance, the purtic 
nlars of which have not transpired. 

Oa the breaking up of the Vienna Conference, 
which shattered the last hopes of the peace party, 
Mr. Fillmore very suddenly took his departure for 
Europe, and it is understood to be Mr. Tyler'g in- 
tention to leave in the next steamer for the same 
destination. Now these mysterious movements are 
very significant facts, which can hardly be account- 
ed for upon any other hypothesis. It >s understood 
that the Emperor Nicholas, previous to bis death, 
in view of the successful defence of Sevastopol, had 
become adverse to the project, deeming the “ tick 
man's" effects as almost within his grasp; hat 
Alexander is not as BangniDe on this point, and is 
quite willing to adopt the proposed method of set- 
tling the difficulty. The Court of St. James is very 
much in favor of it, and so anxious are the Palmer- 
ston Ministry to secure peace before the popular 
indignation takes the form ofrevolution in England, 
that strong hints have been given by tbe filibusters, 
and partially endorsed by the London Tiroes, that no 
further notice will be taken of any Cuban demon- 
stration which may hereafter be made, in case the 
said commissioners should succeed in bringing about 
a firm peace. In fact it is said that both England 
snd France will use their influence with Bp in for 
the transfer of Cuba by purchase to tbe United 
States fora reasonable compensation. 

The Commissioners will meet, it is expected, 
somewhere on the continent, and deliberate in 
secret. Meanwhile the war will go on, as the A1 
lies will consent to no armistice or suspension of 
hostilities until the result is annnounced. It was 
intended, nay insisted upon hs one of the conditions 
of this arrangement — iu order to overreach Aust ria 
and Prussia, and prevent their meddling — that the 
whole affair should be kept a profound diplomatic 
secret; .but as you Brc aware, modern diplomatic 
sc-crete are, of all others, the most difficult to retain, 
and I entertain no doubt but that the semi-official 
organs here will deny tn tolo \\ hat I assure yon, be- 
yond all question, is a positive fact. I will advise 
yon further in a few davs, but must at present draw 
to a close. Yours, Ac. M

OR THE 

HISTORY OF MYSTERY! 

[cokthtcei) 1 

Wr< urn f*r ike LonlsriUe C#irier. 

CHAPTER X. 

Though Said wu in himself a mystery of the 
New World, yet was he not the only clouded 
force to which these portentious times gave birth, 
which was to become his foe and alike the terror 
of the old world as well as the new. 

Yes, a terrible mystery — the mvetery of spirit- 
ual annihilation — the mystery of ‘walking 
corpses 9 of humioitv deinoiuted to the greater 
glory of God. 9 

Moxentou* years were those (1537 and 1620) 
which gave birth to the order of Jesuits and to 
Sam Memorable forever will they be in the 
record of human struggle. Strange that out 
of the mighty travail of the Pro'estant Rev- 
olution of the sixteenth century in Europe should 
hsve sprung these two births, the one so event- 
ful to the death, the other to the tile of hojie 
for humanity' that to the smiting of the powerful 
wands of Luther and Calvin, upon the ahadowy 
turmoil these giant foes stept forth, the one be- 
neath the sun of day. the other beneath the um- 
brage of deep night. 

But as we have looked upon the birth of Sam. 
see n so met hing of the stormy contrasts and op- 
posing traits which constituted the majestic ele- 
ments of the formative period of his career; have 
in u word, regarded his prodigious infancy at the 
North sud at the South, in the early Puritan 
and cavalier, we may now turn our eyes on the 
same period in the coming of his arch and most 
deadly enemy 

The sixteenth century was, indeed, a period of 
ferment in the world's history! Absolutism had 
attained the climax of prerogative throughout the 
Christian world. Europe was divided between 
three masters. Henry VII, of England, Francis I, 
of France, and Charles V, of Spain, who held 
it in as many fields, and were fighting a triangu- 
lar battle for the poaaession of the whole, with 
the aid of mercenary arm es; for the feudal sys- 
teor trampled in the dust was no longer rampant 
for the setting up and pulling down oi kings. 

The gold of the newly discovered Western 
World of Sam had now become a puissant arbi- 
trator in these kingly quarrels, and soon the 
old tune chimera sf the ‘balance of power' 
seemed likely to come home to roost beneath the 
roof-tree of Charles V, of Spain 

Henry VIII. who. between the divorcing and 
beheading his wives, plundering the monasteries 
and keeping in check beneath his heel the dying 
throes of the ‘king-making’ turbulence, the 
‘W'arwick' blood of his nobility found sufficient 
employment at home a ‘ter the issue of the elec- 
toral Congress of Frankfort to retire upon from 
this contest and leave France and Spain to fight 
it out. Their wars continued to redden the fields 
of Europe with but little avail. 

Meanwhile, as a compensation for these evils, 
the human mind, casting off the prejudices and 
ignorance of the Middle Ages, marches to regen- 
eration Italy becomes for the second time the 
centre from whence the light of genius and learn- 
ing shines forth over Europe Leonardo da Vin- 
ci, Tiziano, Michael Angelo, are the sublime, the 
moat divine interpreters of art. Puki, Ariosto 
Pohzisno. give a new and creative impulse t> lit- 
erature, and are the worthy descendants of Dan- 
te. Scholasticism with its subtle argumenta- 
tions, vague reasonings, and illogical deductions, 
is superseded by the practisal philosophy of Lo- 
renzo and Machiavelli, and by the irresistible and 
eloquent logic of the virtuous but unfortunate 
Savonarola Men who for the last three centu- 
ries had been satisfied with what had been taught 
and said by Aristotle and his followers — who. as 
the last and incontrovertible argument, ha l been 
accustomed to exclaim, i par dual, now begin to 
think for themselves, and dare to doubt and dis- 
cuss what had hitherto been considered sacred 
and unassailable truths. The newly-awakened 
human intellect eagerly enters upon the new 
path, and becomes argumentative and inquiring, 
to the great dismay of those who deprecated di- 
versity of faith; and the Court of Rome, depend- 
ing on the Mind obedience of the credulous, ana- 
thematising every disputer of the Papal infalli- 
bility, views with especial concern this rising I 
aptrit of inquiry, and has to trouble for its 
usurped power 

Luther, the dogged monk, with the yearnings 
of an enslaved end trampled world, writhing like 
vexed serpents in his brawny breast, had been 
treated with comtu tely in his first humble ap- 
peal to his spiritual father, the Pope, for the solu- 
tion of the conscientious doubts which had over- 
taken him in his too earnest study of the ‘Holy 
Book.' threw himself suddenly back upon his own I 
obdurate and self-reliant will, and hurling his 
d e fia nce back against his late master, in answer 
to the Bull of Excommunication with which he 
bad been favored, stood cap a pic in the breach 
which he had already made to battle to the death 
for his doctrines 

1 he ait of printing came opportunely to his 
aid, wieliing its magic, marvellous to tell, this 
burly champion proved mete to encounter, visor 
Up and single hand, the serried chivalry of Europe 

and the wrong 

The German princes, partly persuaded of the 
truth of Luther's doctrines, partly desirous to 
escape the exacting tyranny of Rome which 
drained their subject's pocket*, supported the Re- 
former They protested at Spires, and at Smil- 
kaden made preparation* to maintain their protest 
by arms In a few years, without armed vio- 
lence, but simply by the persuasive force of 
truth, the greater part of Germany became con- 
verted to the Reformed faith. The honest indig- 
nation of Zuinghus in Switzerland, and, conspi- 
ring with the diffusion of the truth, the unbridled 
passions of Henry VIII in England, alike rescued 
a considerable portion of their respective coun- 
tries from the Romish yoke. In France and in 
Navarre the new doctrines found many warm 
adherents, whilst m Italy itself, at Brescia. Pisa. 
Florence, nay even at Rome and at Faenza, there 
were many who more or less openly embraced 
the principles of the reformation. . Thus, in a 
abort tune, the Roman religion, founded in an- 
cient and deep-rooted prejudices, supported by 
the two greatest powers in the workl, the Pope 
and the Emperor, defended by all the bishops ar 1 
priests who lived luxuriously by it, was over- 
turned throughout a great part of Europe 

Now was the time, when gloom had settled 
upon the cupola of St Peter s, when the thun- 
ders of the Vatican were tamed, and the de- 
bauched and hoary despotism of Rome tottered 
on a throne of straw — now was the time 
which was to add terror to terror, crime to crime, 
which, in a new birth of darkness, was to peo- 
ple earth with incarnate ghosts more drear and 
powerful of evil than the creatures of a supernal 
bell 

The period had come when, in the dulcet lan- 
guage of the Fathers of the Church, it was declared 
that, as rom time to ti me new heresies have in- 
flated the Church of God, so He has raised up 
holv men to combit them, and as be had raised 
up St. Dominic against the Albigenses and Yau- 
dois. so He sent Loyola and lus disciples against 
the Lutherans and Calvinists ‘f 
| It is of this new mystery,' recording to such 
authority, ‘raised up by God.' to resist those 
elements oat of which ths birth of Sam came, 
that we would now proceed to narrate 

Inigo, or, as commonly called, Ignatius Loyola, 
the youngest of eleven children of a noble and 
ancient family, was born in the year 1491. in his 
lather's castle of Loyola at Guipuscoa in Spain. 
He was of middle stature and rather dark com- 
plexion. had deep -set, piercing eyes, and a hand- 
some and noble countenance. While yet young 
be bad become bald, which gave him an expression 
ef dignity, that was no* impaired by a lamenet s 
ariaing from a severe wound His father, a 
worldly man, as his biographer says, instead of 
sanding him to some holy community to be in- 
atructod in religion and piety, placed him as a 
F*T •* court af Ferdinand V. But Igna- 
tius, naturally of a bold and aspiring disposition.

soon .ound that no glory was to be reaped in the 
antechambers of the Catholic King; and de- 
lighting in military exercises, he became a sol- 
dier — and a brave one he proved. His histo- 
rians, to make his subsequent conversion appear 
more wonderful and miraculous, have represented 
him as a perfect monster of iniquity; but. in 
truth he was merely a gay soldier, fond of plea- 
sure. no doubt, yet not more debauched than the 
generality of his brother officers His profligacy, 
whatever it was, did rot prevent him from being 
a man of strict honor, nsver backward in time of 
danger 

At the defence of Pampeluna against the 
French, in 1521, Ignatius, while bravely perform- 
ing his duty on the walls, was struck down by a 
ball, which disabled both his legs. With him 
fell the courage of the beseiged. They yielded, 
and the victors en'ering the town, found the 
wounded officer, and kindly sent him to his 
father's castle, which was not far distant. Here 
he endured all the agonies which generally at- 
tend gunshot wounds, and an inflammatory fever 
which supervened brought him to the verge of 
the grave— when, ‘oh, miracle !’ exclaims his 
biographer, *it being the eve of the feast of the 
glorious saints Peter and Paul, the prince of the 
apostles appeared to him in a vision, and touched 
him. whereby he was, if not immediately restored 
to health, at least put in a fair way of recovery.’ 
Now the feet is, that the patient uttered not a 
syllable regarding his vision at the time; never- 
theless we are gravely assured that the miracle 
was not the less a fact. Be this, hswever, as it 
may, Ignatius undoubtedly recovered, though 
slowly. During his long convalescence, he 
sought to beguile the tedious hours of irksome 
inactivity passed in the sick chamber by reading 
all the books of knight-errantry which could be 
procured The chivalrous exploits of the Ro- 
lands and Ammdises made a deep impression upon 
his imagination, which, rendered morbidly sensi- 
tive by a long illness, may well be supposed to 
have been by no means improved by such a course 
of study. When these books were exhausted, 
some pious friend brought him the Lives of the 
Saints This work, however, not suiting his taste, 
Ignatius at first flung it aside in disgust, but af- 
terwards, from sheer lack of better amusement, 
he began to read it. It presented to him a new 
phase of the romantic and marvellous, in which 
he so much delighted. He soon became deeply 
interested, and read it over and over again. I he 
strange adventures of these nr ints — the praise, 
the adoration. the glorious renown which they ac- 
quired. so fired his mind, that he almost forgot 
his favorite paladins. His ardent ambition saw 
here a new career opened up to it. He longed to 
become a saint. 

Yet the military life had not lost its attractions 
tor him. It did not require the painful prepara- 
tions necessary to earn a saintly reputation, and 
was, moreover, more in accordance with his edu- 
cation and tastes. He long hesitated which 
course to adopt — wT ether he should win the lau- 
rels of a hero or earn the crown of a saint. 
Had he perfectly recovered from the effects of his 
wound, there is little doubt but that he would 
have chosen the laurels. But this was not to be. 
Although he was restored to health, his leg re- 
mained hopelessly deformed — he was a cripple 
for life. It appeared that his restorer, St. Peter, 
although upon the whole a tolerably good physi- 
cian, was by no means an expert surgeon. The 
broken bone of his leg had not been properly 
set; part of It protruded through the skin below 
the knee, and the limb was short Sorely, but 
vainly, did Ignatius strive to remove these imped- 
iments to a military career, which his unskilful 
though saintly surgeon had permitted to remain. 
He had the projecting piece of bone sawn off, 
and his shortened leg painfully extended by me- 
chanical appliances, in the hope of restoring it to 
its original fine proportions The attempt failed; 
so he found himself, at the age of thirty-two, 
with a shrunken limb, with little or no renown, 
and by his incurable lameness, rendered tut 
slightly capable of acquiring military glory. 
Nothing then remained for him but to become a 
saint. 

Saint ship being thus, as it were, forced upon 
him. he at once set about the tast of achieving 
It. with all that ardour which he brought to bear 
upon every pursuit. He became daily absorbed 
in the moat profound meditations, and made a 
full ronfessisn of all his past sins, which was so 
often interrupted by his passionate outbursts of 
penitent weeping, that it lasted three days.t To 
stimulate his devotion, he lacerated his flesh with 
the scourge, and abjuring his past life, he hung 
up his sword beside the altar in the church of the 
convent of Monserrat. Meeting a beggar on the 
public road, he exchanged clothes with him, and, 
thus habited in the loathsome rags of the mendi- 
cant. retired to a cave near Menreze, where he 
nearly starved himself. When he next reap- 
peared in public, he found his hopes almost re- 
alised. His fame had spread far and wide; the 
people flocked from all quarters to see him — visited 
his cave with feelings of reverent curiosity — and 
nothing was talked of but the holy man and his 
severe penances. But now the Evil spirit began 
to assail him. The tender conscience cf Igna- 
tius began to torment him with the fear that all 
this public notice had made him proud; that, 
while he had almost begun to consider himsel f a 
saint, he was, in reality, by reason of that very 
'belief itself, the most heinous of sinners. So 
embittered did his life become in consequence of 
these thoughts, that he went well nigh dis- 
tracted. But God supported him; and the 
Tempter, baffled in his attempts, fled. Ignatius 
fasted for seven days, neither eating nor drinking; 
went again to the confessional; and, receiving 
absolution, was not only delivered from the 
stings of his own conscience, but obtained the 
gi ft of healing the troubled consciences of othcrs.% 
This miraculous gift Ignatius is believed to have 
transm tted to his successors, and it is in a great 
measure to this belief that the enormous influ- 
ence ef the Company of Jesus is to be attributed, 
as we shall see hereafter. 

Now that Ignatius could endure his saintship 
without being overwhelmed by a feeling of sin- 
fulness. he pursued his course with renewed alac- 
rity. Yet it was in itself by no means an attrac- 
tive one. In order to be a peifect Catholic saint, 
a man must become a sort of misanthrope— cast 
aside wholesome and cleanly apparel, go about 
clothed in filthy rags, wearing hair-cloth next 
his skin — and, renouncing the world and its in- 
habitants, must retire to some noisome den, there 
.to live in solitary meditation, with wild roots and 
water for food, daily applying the scourge to 
expiate his sins— of which, according to one of 
the disheartening doctrines of the Catholic 
Church, even the just commit at least seren a 
day The saint must enter into open rebellion 
against the laws and instincts of human nature, 
and consequently against the will ol the Creator. 
And although it cannot be denied that some of 
the founders of monastic orders conscientiously 
believed that their rules were conducive to holi- 
ness and eternal beatitude, nevertheless, we 
may with justice charge them with overlooking 
the fee*, that, as the transgression of the laws of 
nature invariably brings along with it its own pun- 
ishment — a certain evidence of the Divine dis- 
pleasure — true holiness cannot consist in disre- 
garding and opposing them. 

Ignatius, however, continued his life of penance, 
made to the Virgin Mary a solemn vow of per- 
petual chastity, begged for bread, often scourged 
himself, and spent many hours a day in prayer 
and meditalion. What he meditated upon, God 
only knows. After a few months of this ascetic 
life, he published a little book which much in- 
creased his fame for sanctity. It is a small octavo 
volume, and bears the title of Spiritual Exerci- 
se* .* As this work, the only one he has left, is 
the acknowledged standard of the Jesuit's reli- 
gious practice, and is by them extolled to the 
skies, we must say some few words about it. 

First of all, we shall relate the supem rtural 
origin assigned to it by the disciples and pane- 
gyrists of its author. 

He (Ignatius ) had already done much for 
God's sake, and God now rendered it back to him 
with usury. A courtier, a man of pleasure, and 
a soldier, he had neither the time nor the will to 
gather knowledge from books. But the knowl- 
edge of man, the most difficult of all. was divine- 
ly revealed to him. The master who was to form 
so many masters, was himself formed by divine 
illumination. He composed the Spiritual Exer- 
cises, a work which had a most important place 
iu his life, and is powerfully reflected in the his- 
tory of his disciples.

This quotation is from Crotineau Joly (vol. i. p. 
18.) an author who professes not to belong to 
the society, but whose book was published under 
the patronage of the Jesuits, who, he says, 
opened to him all the depositories of unpublished 
letters and manuscripts in their principal convent, 
the Gesu at Rome; he wrote also a virulent 
pamphlet against the great Pontiff Clement XIV., 
the suppressor of the Jesuits. Hence we con- 
sider ourselves fairly entitled to rank the few 
quotations we shall make from him as amrng 
those emanating from the writers that belong to 
the order; and we are confident that no Jesuit 
would ever think of repudiating Cretineau Joly. 
This author proceeds to state that in the manu- 
script in which Father Jouvency narrates in ele- 
gant Latin those strange events, it is said — this 
light shed by the divine will upon Ignatius 
shewed him openly and without veil the mystery 
of the adorable Trinity and other arcana of reli- 
gion. He remained for eight days as if deprived 
of life. What he witnessed during this ecstatic 
trance, as well as in many other visions which 
he had during life, no one knows. He had in- 
deed committed these celestial visions to paper, 
but shortly before his death he burned the book 
containing them, lest it should fall into unworthy 
hands. A few pages, however, escaped his pre- 
cautions, and from them one can easily conjec- 
ture that he must have been from day to day 
loaded with still greater favors. Chiefly was he 
sweetly ravished in contemplating the dignity of 
Christ the Lord, and his inconceivable charity 
towards the human race. As the mind of Ig- 
natius was filled with military ideas, he figured 
to himself Christ as a general fighting for the 
divine glory, and calling on a!l men to gather 
under his standard. Hence sprang his desire to 
form an army of which Jesus should be the chief 
and commander, the standard inscribed — ‘■Ad ma- 
jorem Die Glonam. * 

With deference to M. Joly, we think that a 
more mundane origin may be found for the'Exer- 
cises,’ in the feverish dreams of a heate imagi- 
nation. Be this as iCmay, however, we shall pro- 
ceed to lay before our readers a short analysis of 
it, extracted from Cardinal Wiseman's preface to 
the Iasi edition. He says — ‘This is a practical, 
not a theoretical work. It is not a treatise on 
sin or on virtae; it is not a method of Christian 
perfection, but it contains the entire practice of 
perfection, by making us at once conquer sin and 
acquire the highest virtue. The person who goes 
through the Exercises is not instructed, but is 
made to act; and this book will not be intelligible 
apart from this view.’ 

The reader will observe that it is divided into 
Four Weeks; and each of these has a specific 
obje ct, to advance the exercitant an additional 
step towards perfect virtue. If the work of each 
week be thoroughly done, this is actually accom- 
plished .* 

‘The first week has for its aim the cleansing of 
the conscience from past sin, and of the affections 
from their future dangers. For this purpose, the 
soul is made to convince itself deeply of the true 
end of its being — to serve God and be saved, and 
of the real worth of all else. This consideration 
has been justly called by St. Ignatius the princi- 
ple or foundation of the entire system.’ The Car- 
dinal assures us that the certain result of this 
first week's exercises is, that ‘sin is abandoned, 
hated, loathed 

‘!n the second, the life of Christ is made our 
model, by a series of contemplations of it we be- 
come familiar with his virtues, enamored of his 
perfections; we learn, by copying him, to be obe- 
dient to God and man; meek, humble, affection- 
ate; zealous, charitable and forgiving; men of 
only one wish and one thought — that of doing ever 
God's holy will alone; discreet, devout, observant 
of every law, scrupulous performers of every 
duty. Every meditation on these subjects shews 
us how to do all this; in fact makes us really 

do it. A The third week brings us to 

this. Having desired and tried to be like Christ 
in action, we are brought to wish and to endeavor 
to be like unto him in suffering. For this propose 
his sacred passion becomes the engrossing subject 

of the Exercises But she (the soul) 

must be convinced and feel, that if she suffers, she 
also shall be glorified with him; and hence the 
fourth and concluding week raises the sonl to the 
consideration of those glories which crowned the 
humiliations and suffering of our Lord.’ Then after 
a highly figurative culogium upon the efficacy of 
the Exercises ‘duly performed,’ the reverend pre- 
late proceeds to shew that the one ‘essential ele- 
ment of a spiritual retreat’ (for so the Exercises 
reduced to action are properly called) ‘is dire'/- 
t%on .’ In the Catholic Church no one is ever 
allowed to trust himself in spiritual matters. The 
sovereign pontiff is obliged to submit himself to 
the direction of another in whatever concerns 
his own soul. The life of a good retreat is a 
good director of it. This director modifies (ac- 
cording to certain written rales) the c rder of the 
Exercises, to adapt them to the peculiar char- 
acter of the exercitant; regulates the time em- 
ployed in them, watches their effects, and like a 
physician prescribing fora patient, varies the treat- 
ment according to the symptoms exhibited, en- 
couraging those which seem favorable, and sup- 
presing those which arc detrimental to the desired 
result. ‘Let no one,’ says the Cardinal, ‘think 
of undertaking these holy Exercises without 
the guidance of a prudent and experiened di- 
rector.’ 

It will be seen that the weeks of the Exercises 
do not mean necessarily a period of seven days. 
The original period of their performance was cer- 
tainly a month; but even so, more or less time 
was allotted to each week's work according to 
the discretion of the director. Now, except in 
very particular circumstances, the entire period is 
abridged to ten days; sometimes it is still further 
reduced. 

It will be observed from the above extracts 
that the Cardinal, ignoring the fact that the sin- 
ner's conversion must be effected entirely by the 
operat ion of the Holy Spirit, seems to regard the 
unregenerate human soul merely as a peice of 
raw material, wnich the ‘director' may, as it were, 
manufacture into a saint, simply by subjecting it 
to the process prescribed in the Exercises. 

In regard to the merits of the book, I C'nnot 
agree either with Wiseman or a very brilliant 
Protestant writer, t who, speaking of the appro- 
bation bestowed on it by Pope Paul III., says — 
‘Yet on this subject the chair of Knox, if now 
filled by himself, would not be very widely at va- 
riance with the throne of St. Peter.’ The book 
certainly does does not deserve this high eulo- 
giuzu. However, it cannot be denied that, amidst 
many recommendations of many absurd and su- 
perstitious practices proper to the Popish re- 
ligion, the little volume does contain some very 
g od maxims and precepts. For instance, here 
are two passages to which I am sure that not 
even the most anti-Catholic Protestant could rea- 
sonably object. At page 16 it is said: 

‘Man was created for this end, that he might 
praise and reverence the Lord his God, and, 
serving him, at length be saved.* But the other 
things which are placed on the earth were 
created for man's sake, that they might assist 
him in pursuing the end of creation, whence it 
follows, that they are to be used or abstained from 
in proportion as they benefit or hinder him in 
pursuing that end. Wherefore we ought to be 
indifferent towards all created things (in so far 
as they are subject to the liberty of our will, and 
not prohibited), so that (to the best of our power) 
we seek not health more than sickness, nor prefer 
riches to poverty, honour to contempt, a longlife 
toashortone. But it is fitting, out of all, to 
choose and desire those things only which lead 
to the end.’ And again, at page 33, the third 
(article for meditation) is, to consider myself; who 
or oi what kind I am, adding comparisons which 
may bring me to a greater contempt of myself; 
as, if I reflect how little I am when compared 
with all men then, what the whole multitude of 
mortals is, as compared with the angels and al] 
the blessed; after these things I must consider 
what, in fact, all the creation is in comparison 
with God the Creator himself; what now can I, 
one mere human being, be! Lastly, let me look 
at the corruption of my whole self, the wicked- 
ness of my soul, and the pollution of my body, and 
account myself to be a kind of ulcer or boil, from 
which so great and foul a fl>od of sins, so great 
a pestilence of vices has flown down. 

The fourth is, to consider what God is, whom 
I have thus offended, collecting the perfections 
which are God’s peculiar attributes and compar- 
ing them with my opposite vices and defects; 
comparing, that is to say, his supreme power, 
wisdom, goodness, and justice, with my extreme 
weakness, ignorance, wickedness, and iniquity.

THE VMETARD, 

The Cultivation o* the Grape and the Prepara- 
tion of Wine. 

BY J. A. CORNEAU. 

SUCTION TEN — THE VINTAGE 

There is probably no return which Earth gives 
to her children so filled with all the elements of 
graceful and rational happiness, and, at the same 
time, with substantial advantage to the producer, 
as the vintage. It is true that the “harvest home” 
in Old England is always regarded by her people 
as a period of unqualified enjoyment and satis- 
faction, and its recurrence an occasion when plea- 
sure mingles deep ly with thankfulness, for the 
blessing secured and its prospective advantages. 
The same may be said of most parts of the world 
where wheat and corn are cultivated; the golden 
sheaves, heavy with the precious grain, can but 
inspire sentiments of thankfulness and joy to their 
possessor, whose labors have been rewarded and 
whose hopes have not been doomed to disappoint- 
ment. But the vintage carries with it everywhere 
not only tiie sentiments and feelings which prevail 
in connection with other products of the earth 
but those of poetry, romance, gaiety and joy. It 
is looked forward to with feelings of the most in- 
tense interest by all classes; old and young— the 
noble and the peasant— the father and the children — 
the lover and his pride— all regard the vintage 
as a sort of Saturnalia , when a hearty adieu is 
bid to care, and mirth and happiness usurp the 
places of sadness and sorrow. Tne vintage is the 
principal act i.i the great Drama of Nature — The 
Seasons — and is usually performed with great 
eclat. 

In the earliest recorded history of mankind, we 
have proofs of the i xistence and cultivation of the 
grape, and the planting of vineyards. In Gen. ix; 
20 , we find it written that Noah planted a vine- 
yard; and of the great value attached to this culture, 
*we may form some idea, when) we reflect that 
amongst the laws promulgated from Monnt Sinai, 
are many whose provisions are designed for the 
protection of the vineyards of the Israelites. Many 
•f these were of cnosiderable extent, and were rented 
out to “keepers;” ev ry one for the fruit thereof 
was to bring 1000 pieces of silver. 

The sacred scriptures abound with illustra'ions 
drawn from the vine, and the culture of the vine- 
yard; wh ch go to show the high estimation in 
which they were held, and the prominent position 
they invariably occupied in the minds of the pro- 
phets and lava givers of the earliest ages of the 
world. The proper culture aud care of the vine- 
yard, iu opposition to a neglectful couise is referred 
to iu Prov. xxiv: 30, 31. In Isaiah v: 2, we find that 
the removal of stones from the vineyard, and the 
construction of wine presses, was a matter quite 
familiar to the Prophet. In xxxvi: 16, we find that 
the emissary of the Assyrian king held out as 
among the strongest inducements to the people to 
revolt, the promise that each man should enjoy 
the fruit of his own vine and fig tree, and drink 
of the waters of his own cistern. In Leviticus 
xx v: 3, 4, 5, 11, we find it commanded that the 
fruit of the vine shall only be gathered for six con- 
secutive years, and that the seventh shall be a year 
of “rest unto the land, a Sabbath for the Lord ” 
when the vine shall not be pruned ; nor its fruit 
gathered-, after seven times seven periods have 
elapsed, the sncceeding fiftieth year shall in like 
manner be observed as “a year of jubilee,” when 
they shall “proclaim liberty throughout all the 
land, unto all the inhabitants thereof.” 

It is evident from the writings of the sacred 
authors that the use of wine was not only reccog- 
nized and approved, bnt that itconstitnted a most 
prominent drink; while its excessive use, or abuse, 
was as severely reprobated and denounced as in 
these more elightened days, when we are blessed 
and favored with the opinions, acts and laws of 
our great modern rejormers before whose gi- 
gantic intellects and superior judgment, the pro- 
phets of old must hide their diminished heads. 
Have wc not “Tee-totalers,” “Washingtonians,” 
“Sons and Daughters of Temperance,” “Temples 
of Honor,” “Carson Leagues,” “Maine Laws,” &e , 
and their advocates? and behold the wonderful ad- 
vancement of our people in the paths of temperance’ 
Alas that Neal Dote and his compeers were born 
so late' how much good they might hare done in 
those “olden times;” setting an example to us 
moderns like a great shining light, illnmining the 
past with the effulgence of their greatness, and 
lending a brilliancy to the future by their efforts, 
which we fear will not in these degenerate days 
be appreciated or found to possess the merits 
claimed for them. Besides the frequent reference 
to the vine and vineyards in the Old Testament, 
we find them to be continual objects of reference 
and illustration in the New, as in St. Mott., XX, 
1,15, and many other places; while the Marriage 
in Cana and the last supper of Christ with his 
disciples, give a sanction to the use of icine (pure 
wine) which is paramount to all argument or 
reasoning against its use. 

That the cultivation of the Grape and the produc- 
tion and use of pure unadulterated wine is sanctioned 
by every known principle of doctrine of morality 
and religion, there can be no question, by any re- 
flecting, rational and truly comprehensive mind. 
Like the cultivation of the soil for the production of 
grain, grass and the other fruits of the earth, for the 
comfort and sustenance of mankind and the animals 
subservient to his use, we rogartfthe cultivation of 
the grape os an occupation most admirably adapted 
to awaken in the breast of man a feeling of greatful- 
ness mingled with admiration of the evidences of a 
superior power and wisdom, and having a tendency 
to make him realize the many blessings he enjoi s, 
and look ever for a continuance of them “from na- 
ture up to nature’s God.’’ 

A distinguished English writer says: “Important 
as are many of the already enumerated purposes to 
which the fruit of the vine is applied, yet are they 
as nothing when compared to its value for the wine 
press. We are no disciples of Dr. Whitaker, but we 
are equally far from being proselytes of Father 
Mathew, and although the use of wine, like all other 
good gifts, maybe abused, yet wc never saw sufficient 
cause for concluding David was wrong when he gave 
thanks to God for “wine which maketh glad the 
heart of man"— or that St. Paul was erring when he 
bade bis fellow workman “to take a little wine” to 
strengthen him under his infirmities.'’ 

The doctrines of Dr. Whitake, mentioned above, 
were, that by the judicious use of various wines 
life may be prolonged from infancy to old age with- 
out disease. 

The time for commencing the vintage is an oft de- 
bated point — never settled; except in some parts of 
France — when the day is fixed by the civil authori- 
ties; the manifest injustice of such a law, to say 
nothing of its absurdity, must be recognised at once. 
1 1 is considered in Europe a test of the ripeness and 
fitness of the grape for wine making, when the 
stems which support the berries arc found to be 
dried and of a dark color. The test has been re- 
commended and advised here; but it is far from being 
a correct one; in a majority of cases our grapes are 
ripe for wine making while the stems are quite green. 
It is essential, however, that the grape should be 
fully ripe, and some means are necessary to enable 
the vigneron to determine when that moment ar- 
rives. Our rule has been to be guided chcifly by 
the color and softness of the grape, and when the 
berry parts from the stem with ease. Another rule 
has been to delay the Vintage for days and even 
weeks after being reminded repeatedly by our Ger- 
man Vineyard hands that it was “time to pick 
grapes.” They are a little too eager to get through 
with the Vintage — hence the importance and neces- 
sity of not being hurried by the importunities or 
judgment of others; — be sure that your fruit is fully 
ripe before commencing. Having finally deter- 
mined upon the day, you should then proceed regu- 
larly and s eadily, until thewhole iscompleted, pick- 
ing the fiuest and most perfect fruit first; a clear, 
bright day is to be preferred- never pick grapes iu 
damp or cloudy weather. The clipping may be done 
with a knife or scissors, and the bunches should be 
carefully handled — disposing them in a regular man- 
ner in the baskets, or hods, used for carrying them 
from the Vineyard vo the Wine House. The Wine 
House should be a clean, well ventilated room, pro- 
vided with a press, (of which there are different forms 
of construction' together with the simple, yet indis- 
pensable utensils and conveniences for handling the 
grapes and wine. 

The proctss ol wine making is exceeding simple, 
and yet it requires care, ntatness and good judg- 
ment — and above all the most scrupulous regard to 
cleanliness in the press, casks and other appurte- 
nances connected with the manufacture. 

In our next article we will detail the process of 
Wine making, as pursued in our own establishment, 
and which will serve as a description of the methods 
pursued by most persons in this vicinity, with some 
exceptions, which we will ment on as we proceed. —

The Late Fro»t.— Advantaees ofL'nilerdraiuinB. 

Since the recent frost we visited the vineyard ef 
Mr. Gabriel Sleath, in Delhi township, about four 
miles west of this city. His grapes have not suf- 
fered by the frost. A few of the leaves were 
nipped and are curled, but none of the buds in- 
jured. The vines arc vigorous and thrifty, most 
of the shoots giving promise of three to four 
large bunches of grapes. Mr. Sleath anticipates 
an abundant crop this year, should the season 
henceforth be an ordinary one. He attributes the 
escape of his grapes from the effects of frost, to 
his system of underdrawing. Hr now has a drain 
to every four rows of grapes, and is so thoroughly 
convinced of its utility that he intends to construct 
a drain between every two rows. The under- 
draining, he says, increases the temperature of 
the ground from fifteen to twenty degrees; and 
with him has proved a complete preventive of 
mildew. He has lost no grapes by mildew or rot, 
since under-draining; while the loss of fruit from 
this cause has been great in vineyards without 
that precaution. Mr. S. is confidentthat an acre 
of ground, well unc for-drained, will jroduce a lar- 
ger crop of any kind, than can be grown on an 
acre and a-half not so prepared. As this is his 
experience, it is well worthy of the attention of 
agriculturalists and horticultpralists. Mr. Sleath 
has about fifteen acres in grapes, the whole ot 
which is carefully worked like a garden — not a 
weed or a spear of grass to be seen — nothing hut 
the finely pulverized soil and the vines, and those 
drained in the best manner. Some persons, we 
learn, have a prejudice against under-draining, 
fearing that the effect would be to make the ground 
too dry; but this appears altogether erroneous. 
Every good iarmer knows that by deep plowing be- 
fore planting, and stirring the soil in dry weather, 
com suffers less than it would do were the ground 
not worked. — Cin. Com. 

Tlic Crops . 

The Corydon (Harrison county, Ind.) Argus 
says that late rains made a made a most benefi- 
cial change in the vegetable world. The wheat 
now promises a heavy harvest, ai d fruit of all 
kinds looks excellent. 

Col. Anderson, of Calloway county, informed 
the Boonville (Mo.) Observer that a young man 
in h*s employ, pruning apple trees, was severely 
injured by hail stones, about a fortnight since. 
Some of the hailstones, he said, were solid ice, 
about the size of a man's fist, which remained 
on the ground from the afternoon of one day 
until next morning. Much damage was done to 
fruit and vegetation generally. Col. Anderson 
had several lambs destroyed by the hail. 

Ohio papers repudiate the idea that there is to 
be a short crop of wheat in that State, from 
present appearances, and declare that the wheat 
fields are in as admirable growth as could be de- 
sired.

A CURIOUS CASE!! 



P. T. BARNUM IN A NEW CHARACTER ! 

The Tribulations of a Millionaire. 

The “great American Showiran” seems to hare 
a remarkable proclivity for keeping his name be- 
fore the public. We extract the following account 
of his last success in that line, in the New York 
papers of Thursday: 

P. T. Barnum was yesterday arraigned before 
Justice Osborne, to answer to the charge of vio- 
lating the person of Mrs. Anna Hessing, the 
wife of one of his bill distributors. Mrs. Hes- 
sing was sworn. She stated that on the 18th of 
April, about 4 1-2 P. M., Mr. Barnum came to her 
house to see her husband, who was not at home. 
Mr. B. then asked liberty to kiss her, which she 
refus’d; he then seized her forcibly, kissed her, 
and afterward violated her person; that she w as 
too much frightened to make any outcry; when 
her husband came home, at 7 P. M., she was too 
afraid of him to tell him; she informed him that 
Mr. Barnum had been there and waited to see 
him; he went away in about fifteen minutes, but 
returned to tea about 11 P. M.; she then told him 
Barnum had kissed her; he accused her of having 
had more connexion with Barnum, which she. 
through fear, denied; her husband then went to 
see Barnum, but did not find him; she did not tell 
any one of the rape until three weeks after, 
when, through the urgent request of her husband, 
she went to the Mayor’s office and made the 
statement to Mr. Sender, of Mr ] Barnum’s con- 
duct to her. 

This statement had been made in consequence 
of her husband's repeated and urgent desires 
that she should make further disclosures, as he 
believed that something more than kissing had 
taken place 

Her husband lived with her until she made the 
complaint, since which he has refused to support 
her. Mr. Wolff, one of her boarders, was sitting 
on her bed at the time Barnum entered the house, 
hut he afterward went up to his room and left 
Barnum alone with her. 

Mr. Wolff was then sworn. He refused to 
answer for what purpose he was sitting on Mrs. 
Hessi rig's bed when Barnum came. He ac- 
knowledges having written a letter to Mr. D. D. 
Howard, threatening to sue Mr Barnum, or publish 
him in the newspapers, if he did not pay Hessing 
money. He had advised Hessing and wile to go 
to law. He refused, repeatedly, to state what ne 
was doing in Mrs. Hessing’s room, as he said he 
was a lawyer and did not feel bound to answer. 

Coroner King, of the Mayor’s office, was next 
sworn. He testified that Mr. Hessing haul called 
on liim to make complaint against his wife, and 
was very strenuous in his charge against her, 
and wanted Barnum locked up immediately. He 
tried to appease him, as he thought that perhaps 
Barnum hail gone there and kissed Mrs. H., for 
she was a good looking woman, but he did not 
believe the affair was anything more than a frivo- 
lous one. 

Mr. Sender was next sworn. He testified as 
to Mrs. Hessing" s first statement to him, being 
only a charge of kissing against Mr. Barnum. but 
that after being urged by her husband, she had 
made the criminal charge which was in her sec- 
ond, and not in her first affidavit. He tried to 
dissuade her from prosecuting the matter, but she 
persisted. As her husband had refused to sup- 
port her after the complaint, he (Sender) had, at 
the suggestion of Justice Osbome, provided for 
her, as she was about to be confined. 

Mr. Henry Hessing. the husband, was then 
sworn. He was very bitter in his denunciation 
of Barnum, and asserted that immense sums had 
been offered him to settle the matter — among 
them one of 85,000, through Mr. Howard — hut 
he refused; he had taken no measures for sepera- 
tion from his wife, and had lived with her since 
his knowledge of the rape. He said that Sender 
had offered to kiss his wife, who he thought wa- 
a great favorite with both the American and Ger- 
man gentlemen. 

Mr. D. D. Howard was then sworn. He tes- 
tified that he had introduaed complainant to Mr. 
Barnum, who had provided him with a situation; 
complainant had come to him with hia charges 
against Mr. B. and was very violent, and wanted 
Mr. B. to go witn him to Castle Garden, each to 
take a pistol and shoot at the other like gentle- 
men. Mr. Barnum declined; after which, Hessing 
swore, that if Barnum did not pay him 825.0(H) 
in one hour, he would kill him, complain of him 
at the Police Court, the Mayor's office, and pub- 
lish him in the newspapers, and various other 
desperate measures. Mr. Howard then saw that 
his object was to extort money from Mr. B., who 
refused to have anything more to say to him. 
Hessing, finding that Mr. Barnum did not give 
h : m 825,000 subsequently went to Mr. Howard 
and said that he was sorry for what he had done 
and wished to be reinstated in Mr. B.’s employ. 
The testimony here clofrd. 

Judge Osborne brieliy summed up the case 
according to the facts, and in consideration of the 
woman’s not having made any outcry, or spoken 
of the alleged violence until three weeks after it 
was said to have occurred, and the husband hav- 
ing offered to settle it for money, dismissed the 
complaint. 

Mr. Barnum then rose and said: Gentlemen 
Reporters — I have known innocent gentlemen to 
pay from one to two thousand dollars in the course 
of two or three years because conspiracies had 
been made against them. Now, I always said 
that if one was ever made against me I would be 
annihilated before I would pay a single farthing. 
During the twenty years that I have been in the 
city of New York, t have at various times receiv- 
ed letters attempting to inveigle me into houses 
of ill-fame, but no man or woman can say that I 
have ever during that time been within such 
places. I have known within the last year anil a 
half, a highly respectable clergyman to be in- 
veigled into such a house by a lady desiring to see 
him for some charitable purpose. He did not 
kuow anything about the house, but when he 
got there, he found it was a house of ili-fame, and 
was surrounded by ruffians who threatened to 
expose him and ruin his character as a man and a 
clergyman, unless he would pay them 8500. 

The gentleman told me that although he felt 
that the letter was a sufficient justification of his 
presence in the house, he nevertheless paid 8250. 
I told him he was a fool and an css, that I had 
seen too much of the world — and I think I have 
— to he caught in a similar predicament; and 
when this man wanted to settle this matter for 
825, I would have cut my right arm off before I 
would have paid him more than I owed him. I 
owed him 821, and Howard paid him 84 more 
without my knowledge. This man, Hessing, 
threatened to send me to prison, unless I would 
pay his passage to Europe. Mr. Howard will 
tell you I said I never would do it, although 8130, 
or evon a few thousands for that matter, is no 
object to me ; but I would ra'her “ face the music” 
in public — although I know the envy of the world 
and that I have enemies — and make an example 
of these conspirators. I am told that I can now 
arrest these men and this woman and have them 
bound over in 820,000 to answer for conspiracy. 

I do not doit; at present I say let them gD — 
the world is large enough for them and me; hut I 
am ready, I repeat, to “face the music.” I have 
seen too much of the world to be swindled by 
extortioners and conspirators. It would, perhaps, 
have been more pleasant to have kept this matter 
out of the papers, and to have s. ttled it for 8100, 
hut I felt it my duty to pursue this course, and 
for once, at least, I have done my duty to the 
public. 

Mr. Hessing then said that he protested against 
the whole of the proceedings, and should adopt 
other measures for redress. The parties then 
left the Mayor's office accompanied by their 
friends. 

Various Item*. 

Nlw Yoke, May 16. — The Fire Marshal's inves- 
tigation into the recent attempt at arson in the St 
Louis Hotel, in this city, has developed some suspi- 
cious circumstances against Chas. A. Haskins, pro- 
prietor of the hotel, who was yesterday arrested 
and held to bail in the sum of 85,000. 

The statement that the friends of Gen. Echinique 
are organizing a fillibastering expedition in this 
city, against Peru, is denied in a card from Senor 
Lai unuga, of the Peruvian army, and a friend of the 
General. 

In the Supreme Court yesterday, a new trial was 
granted in the notorious Peverilla atson case, on 
account of the technical meaning of the words 
“ adjoit ing premises.” 

Great excitement attended the announcement of 
Baker’s capture and return, and we are this morning 
favored w.th minute details of all the atte-ndant 
circumstances, but they present nothing of striking 
importance. 

Baker's arrest was effected without difficulty on 
board the Isabella Jewett, whe.e he was passing 
under the assumed name of Browne. He stated 
that his intention was to go to Constantinople, and 
take part in the war in the Crimea. 

The prisoner was transferred iu the harbor to a 
tow boat, aud quiet v conveyed to the Tombs, thus 
escaping a scene of excitement that attended the 
arrival of the Grave Shot at her dock. 

The annual address of the President of the State 
Council of Know-Nothings of this State, is publish- 
ed this A. M., and sets forth that since February 
there has been an increase of 200 Councils in the 
State, making the present number 1160, and em- 
bracing, according to the most reliable estimate, 
about 170,000 members. 

The Sax Niehl Nomination*. 

Speculation is afloat in relation to what ti Yet, if 
any, the Sag Xichts nominated in the recent con- 
clave at Columbus. Some assert very roundly that 
they united upon ex-Senator Chase for Governor, 
and adopted the rest of the Democratic ticket ; 
while others say that the whole Democratic ticket 
was swallowed without winking. As we understand 
it, the Sag Niclit organization, as first started, laid 
down about the following principles : 

1st. Hostility to Slavery in every shape, and 
especially toward its extension. 

2d. To receive and welcome all foreigners to tlic 
immediate enjoyment of all the rights of American 
citizens, except Catholics. 

3d. To support the so-called Democratic party. 

There is no doubt that the big fish at the bottom 
of this series of resolutions, has swallowed the little 
ones above, and that the free-sotl and anti-Catholic 
wing of the faction has found itself overshadowed 
by the greater numbers of the opposition. In fact, 
the Sag Nichts arc now but the whippers-iu for the 
Hunkers or Foreign party, and will be used as cats’ 
paw, for pu'Iing their chestnuts out of the fire. 
The idea of their nominating any but the old line 
ticket is ridiculous, to any oae who has kept an eye 
upon their movements . — Cincinnati Columbian. 

L«r”The American party seems to be sweeping 
everything before it in this State. We leam from 
a gentleman, who we have reason to believe 
speaks “by the card,” that the party already num- 
bers in this State a majority of twenty thousand 
voters, ami the increase still goes on. From 
present indications the anties will scarcely make 
a respectable show at the August election.

The News. 

The London Morning Post was very great 

during the late imperial visit, upon matters of 
dress, and is regarded as high authority upon all 
questions c innected with that important subject. 
The journal says: “In regard to the much-mooted 
question as to whether a bonnet should be worn 
on the head or off it, it may not be amiss to take 
advantage of ths actual presence of her impsnal 
Majesty, who is said to have introduced this popu- 
lar feminine eccentricity, to place on record that, 
although the bonnit of the Empress Eugenie 
displays fully her face and hair, it does not con- 
vey to the beholder the idea of its bein'/ likely to 
fall from the bead behind, but rather seems to 
cling to and support the hair in that position. 
This gives a lightness and grace ot carriage to 
the head totally distinct from that boldness and 
bareiacedness which have characterised the Eng- 
lish adoption of the French Imperial fashion." 

A New York letter writer says, recently 

about every fourth individual you meet to-day 
in the devout parts of the city wears a white 
cravat or a buff petticoat — the latter in many 
cases only reaching a small bit below the knees, 
and then the pants going the rest of the way. 
Hut 'tis anniversary week, and that explains all. 
The first bloomer for the season made her appear- 
ance in the Park about ten o’clock on Saturday ; 
and how the little urchins did ran to see what an 
excellent fit was — her breeches ! But the novelty 
has since worn away, for bloomers were as num- 
erous in Broadway last evening as — lamp posts. 
And it is thought that not more than half the 
“strong-minded” have arrived yet. Lucy Stone 
is to come to-morrow, and is to be accompanied 
by Mr. Stone, her spouse — whilom Henry B. 
Blackwell. 

Some six years ago it was found necessa 

ry to depose the Patriarch of the Greek Church 
at Constantinople, in consequence of his corrupt 
practices, and the Sultan caused a letter to t e 
addressed to his successor, in which the monarch 
appeared to regard the ht ndling of much money 
as rather dangerous for bishops in his fominions, 
and suggested, as a* remedy for the disorders 
complained ofi that the secular affairs of the 
church be left with the laity for the most part. 
It is not a little singular that this letter of the 
Mahomedan monarch is now being published by 
papers in this country, in evidence of the neces- 
sity of some more stringent stale laws in regard 
to the tenure of ecclesiastical property. 

The pay of the French soldier is one cent 

per day. Out of that munificent endowment he 
must provide himself with thread, needles, Ac.,

place all things lost or spoiled, while in his pos- 
session, from the arrnv stores; he is furnished 
with one pair of pantaloons and one pair of shoes 
per year, and one coat every two years. On leav- 
ing the service, at the end of seven years, the 
gun, sabre and coat are taken from him, and what- 
ever is left he is entitled to. 

The Washington correspondent of the 

Philadelphia Inquirer states that within the past 
few days the University of*Yirginia has been the 
scone of incidents hardly creditable to the chivalry 
of the Old Dominion. Miss Beecher, an able and 
accomplished lady, the sister of Rev. Henry 
W ard Beecher anil of Mrs. Stowe, visited the vi- 
cinity ot that institution. Her presence was 
soon known, and she was treated to a mock sere- 
nade, and Mrs. Stowe was burnt in effigy. 

Some enterprising news-boys, burrowing 

in the old building on the southeast comer ofNas-

on a large (and evidently old)drposit of semi-bo- 
gus Spanish pistarcens. Afterthe boys had filled 
their hats and pockets the police got about half-a- 
bushel. The coin, said to contain a six-pence 
worth ofsilverto the pistareen, was originally in 
canvass bags — perhaps 100,000 pieces; but when 
buried and by whom, can only be conjectured. 
The room under which it was found was former-

an eloquent advocate at the bar, as a gifted popu-

A correspondent in answer to an inquiry 

in the Express, a day or two since, as to how 
many of the Bishops recently sitting in Provin-

There is scarcely a statesman of eminence, an

Mr. Jones, after having spent an evening

An able article in the last number of the

and Governments of the various countries of the 
earth, says that “it is no longer England, but the

sion to come from an English source. 

A law has just been enacted by the Span- 
ish Cortes, ordering all the lands and dwellings 
belonging to the clergy, to religious fraternities, 
and to pious and sacred works, to be sold and

tions of ecclesiastical property, ar.d stripping the 
Church of its immense possessions.

said his lordship, “ If one side of the horse goes, 
the other can't stand still.” 

A new clock has been invented in Maine 

for the use of persons who have been deprived 
of Iheir accustomed beverage by the Maine Law. 
Upon the dial the figures indicating eleven and

of the accustomed hours of refreshment, forgets 
that he is dry !

Capture or the .Murderer tf Poole. 

Arrival sf the Grapeshet- Raker Brass hi Hsme 
In Iran*. 

About 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon news was 
received in the city that the famous clipper Grape 
shot was coming np tbs Bay. having on board 
Lewis Baker, the murderer of Bill Poole The news 
created an unwonted excitement, and was the lead 
ing theme of conversation and congratulation In 
every part of the town. 

Tne Grapeshot went from this port on the 18th 
of March, in search, and arrived at Palmas on the 
7th of April, and lay off and on the port until the 
17th. when the brig Isabella Jewett hence hove in 
sight, and the police officers went on board and ar- 
rested Efeker without difficulty He now appear* 
quite reconciled, and is in the best health. 

The above brief announcement wm sent up hy 
our ship-news reporters. From other sources we 
hsve gathered the fol! owing details: 

The Grape* hot having the fugitive on board, was 
towed np to the Battery by a Ream-tug, ami Bak. r. 
with the deputation of police who had been sent 
in search of him, 1 unfed and took an omnibus direct 
for the Fifth Ward Station- House in Leonard at, 
which they reached without attracting particular 
attention. The feet of the arrival, however, soon 
became generally known, and in the eourse of * 
very short time thousands had collected in front 
of the Station-House, anxious to get a sight of the 
fugitive. The crowd continuing to increase, Capt. 
Carpenter deemed it proper for tne greater security 
of his prisoner, to send him to vhe Torahs, per 
ticularly as some of Baker’s friends bad hinted a 
design to mob the Station-House and release th* 
prisoner. A carriage was accordingly procured, 
end Baker, escorted by several officers, was con- 
veyed to the Tombs and locked op. As be was 
passing to his cell he met Jim Turner, bis old 
friend and accomplice, and during n brief interview 
between them, was observed to shed tears. 

Tire captain of the Isabella Jewett ^attempted to 
defend Baker, and for some time resisted the officers. 
He said that the man .Baker) was a passenger, and 
that his asms nan Smith, bnt open the officers 
showing their authority and proving Baker to he 
the person whom they wanted, the captain gsv- 
him up. 

Baker was then transferred to the Grapeshot and 
kept in irons shout twenty -four hours, when be was 
allowed the privilege or the ship, hot under close 
surveillance. 

The prisoner appeared very mack composed du- 
ring the trip home, but was not allowed to convene 
with every one on board. 

Tnz Parisian Fashions.— A writer in the Cam -

fashions aa follow* “Parisian ladies have just given 
a striking example of the influence reason exerts 
upon their minds, and hsve laid aside all ridiculous

By general consent, they have * greed in future to 
use only seventy yanfe of material in one dress, to 
reduce the number of flounces to nine, and to wear 
only six petticoats. These reforms are considered 
necessary to a return to the proportions of Gre- 
cian Art. 

It was remarked that the robes and toilette* ware 
furnished with a thousand adjustments and orna- 
ments. They have laid these aside. Henceforth Pa- 
risian ladies will content themselves with tare, ve- 
lart, heads, ribbons, and a aeries of minor decora-

A few hats have appeared, which seemed a little 
eccentric. It was difficult to determine what pine*

Smill Brstxtss von a GaxtT Max — The 
Hon. Secretary Guthrie is disseminating Demo- 
cratic doctrines about the Lake*, by clipping off 
the heat’s of humble Light-house keepers. The 
Administration vetoes all appropriations for 
harbor and river improvements, hut when sosne 
party toady appiie for his reward for political 
purposes, even if it he nothing more than to trim 
the Light-house lamps, the Secretary of the 
Treasury applies his ax* with gusto. The most 
recent instances are the removal ot Mr. Laehhy. 
at W augoechance, near Mackinac, and the ap- 
pointment of Mr. Todd; anil Mr. Omaliey at 
Bois Blanc, to be succeeded by Mr. Grainger 

The parties had no intimation that the great 
Secretary contemplated the “fell swoop.” and 
consequently had no opportunity to deny or re- 
fute the charges, if any, that were brought 
against them by the spoil-seekers. Mr. Guthrie's 
death-warrants are as brief and curt ae the fa- 
mous epistle of Gen. Caaa to the Chicago Con- 
vention. and the Secretary makes the laughable 
mistake of addressing one to Mr*, instead of Mr 
Omaliey Even a supposed “fair neck” could 
not stay the uplifted party axe ! — Cleveland Har-
