I I'll Just tell you how I got caught. I was
| always the .darndest, most tee-custard bash
• fill fellow you ever did see ; it was kin-
I dor in my line to be taken with the shakes
every time I saw a pretty gal approaching
me, and I’d cross the street any time rath
dr titan face one. ’Twash’t because I didn’t
like the critters, for if I was behind a fence'
looking through a knot-hole, X couldn’t
look at one long enough. Well, my sister
Lib gave a party one night, and I stayed
% away from home because 1 was too bashful
Ito face the music. I hung around the
i house whistling . “ Old Dan Tucker,” dan
j cing to keep my feet warm, watching the
r heads bobbing up and down behind the
[ window curtains, and 'wishing the thun
| dering party would break up so I could get
fto my room.; I smoked up a bunch of ci
; gars, and as. it was getting late and mighty
I concluded to shin up the
! door-post. No sooner Said than done—
and 1 soon found myself snug in bed.—
s “ Now !” says I, “ let her rip I Dance till
your wind gives out !” And cuddling un
der quilts, Morpheus grabbed me. 1 was
dreaming of soft shell crabs and stewed
tripe, .and was having a good time, when
somebody knocked at the door and waked
me Up. “ Rap” again. I laid low. “ Rap,
rap, rap, I” Then I heard a whispering,
cud I knew there was a whole raft ofgiris
outside. {‘ Rap, rap!” Then Lib sings out,!
Jack, are you in there “ Yes/’ says I.
Then came a roar of laughter." ‘‘ Let us
in,” says she. “ I won’t,” says I, “ can’t
[ you let a fellow alone!” “Are you abed?”
says she. “ I am,” says I. Then came
another laugh. By thunder! I began to
; get riled. “ (let out, you petticoated scare
crows 1” I cried; “ can’t you get a bead
!: without hauling a fellow out of bed ? X
l won’t go home with you-—/won’t—so you
[J may clear out !” And, throwing a hoot at
'i the door, I felt better. But presently, oh!
| mortal-buttons! I heard a still, small voice,
! very much like sister Lib’s, and' it said:
1 ; “ Jack you’ll have to get up, for all the
girls’ things are in there I” Oh, Lord, what
a pickle! Think of me in bed, all covered
with shawls, muds, bonnets and cloaks,
and twenty girls outside (<he door waiting
to get in! If I bad stopped to think 1
should have papeaked on the spot. As it
was, I rolled put among the bonnet-wire
and.ribbons in a huny. “ Smash !” went
the millinery in every direction. I had to
d?ess in the dark —for there was a - c'rack
in the door,,and the girls will peep—and
.the way I.fumbled about was death on
straw hats. The critical moment came. I
.opened the door, and found myself right
[among the women. “ Oh, my Leghorn !”
cries one. “ My, dear, dear, darling win
er velvet!” cries another; and they pitch
d in—ibey pulled me this way and that,
zed my ears; and one bright-eyed little
|piepe-rBal-— ——hpr name was—put her
arms right around my neck and 'kissed me
smack on the lips. Human nature couldn’t
•stand that, and I give her as good as she
seat. It was the first time 1 ever got a
[ taste, and it was powerful good. I believe
[ coaid haye kissed that gal from Julius
to fourth of July. ‘ ‘ Jack,” said she,
‘yre are sorry to disturb you, but won’tyou
see me home i” “ Yes/' said I, t: I will.”
[ d|d do it, and had another smack at the
gate!, too. After that we took a kinder,
tußtle-doving after each other, both of us
dghing like & barrel of new cider when we
svera away from each other.

was tight, and he kissed her till I jumped

and pulling my shirt thro’ the hole in my

jumping up I displayed to the admiring

more muslin than was pleasant. The wo
men giggled, the men roared, and I got

all my troubles ended. Good night.

Field-Marshal Radetzky.
\ The commander of the army in Italy, died
at his palace in Milan, on the morning of
the sth of January, 1858, in his ninety
second year. ‘Count Joseph Kadetzky was
born at Trebnitzy in- Bohemia, in 1700
His predilection for military adventures
was early devclopui, jjouiinenced
his military career on the Ist oF’’ August,
1781, as a cadet in a cavalry regiment.—
He was called to take part in the long
struggle with Napoleon, and in 1786 be
came an ensign, and twelve months after
ward lieutenant. In 1793 he was made
captain; and in 1796 major. In 1860 he
•obtained the colonelcjPof the Albert cuir
assiers j and in 1801 the rank of major
general. In the battles of 1813, 1814 and
1815, lie gained honorable laurels, inas
much as he defended the independence of
his country; and at Kulju, Leipsic and
Briene iexhibited great bravery. He has
since bequ nothing more than the able ex
ecutioner of a soul-crushing tyrrany. He
encountered on various fields Napoleon,
LanneS, Oudinot, Davoust, Molifor and
Massena. The most important events of
his life, however, transpired in Italy
throughout the revolution of 18-47 and
1848. : •
Toward the close of 1847, the inhabi
tants of Milan, disaffected to the lust de
gree to me Austrian government,- winch
they regarded as the sign of foreign dom
ination, resolved to injure the revenue of'
their'oppressors by abstaining from the
use of tobacco, and the use of cigarsbyaa
Italian'thus became - the sign of an anti
patriotic feeling. To bring this cigar,
question to some kind of issue, on the
3d of January, 1843, a supply of cigars
was furnished to the soldiers of the Milan
barracks, that they might smoke them in
the streets. As was doubtless expected,
the people resented this affront, and fre
quent collisions between ” them and the
military took place during the day. The
soldiers Usedth eir arms; many were wound
ed : and| some killed. In February the Em
peror announced, in a letter to Archduke
Rainer, that he, would make no further
concessions to the Lombard provinces.—
The French revolution was heard of at
Milan,; and the people, excited as they
were, remained unmoved. But, when the
of the revolution at Vienna Came,
the guard at the government house was
attacked and overpowered. r JTwo days af
terwards, on the 26th of - March, the Aus
trian cannon swept the streets of Milan;
hut the people got the advantage in many l
points,' Radetzky determined on a bom
bardment. .The people had taken posses
sion of the palace of the Victory, and plan
ted an immense Italian tri-color flag on
the top of the cathedral. By means of
balloons, the surrounding population were
summoned to come to the help of the Mi
lionse, to destroy all the roads and
bridg|e| By which aitUleiry: could be brought
to Badetzky. On the 23d, ajmed peasants
from liecco took the Gome and TOsagates,
the citadel was evacuated, and the Aus
trians retired in two eolumfis on Verona
and Mantua.
On. the 17th of March (1848) the news
of the events at Vienna reached Milan-
On the next morning barricades were er
ected, ijti every street of Milan: the revo-\
lution had commenQcd. After three days’
fighting lladetzky retired in good order to
Verona. The number of Austrian troops
at Iladetzky’s command at this period was
about 75,p(j0 mon< This includes the gar

meats. Charles Albert declared himself,
and on the 25th of March a Sardinian ar
my crossed the Ticino in two columns. —
On the Bth of April he advanced against
Radetzky. Skirmishing commenced on
-the flth -with the Austrian . at
Goito, about six miles from‘Mantua. Af
ter some severe fighting Charles Albert
forced the passage, and. Radetzky fell back,
first \m Mantua, then on Verona. The
Italians were elated with' success; rein
forcements poured' in from Tuscany, Rome
and Naples, Radetzky concentrated his
main force at Verona, leaving a strong di
vision at Pastrengo to keep jppen his com
munications with the Tyrol. Charles Al
bert resolved to attack this division. On
the 23d he carried the heights, and tbe
Austrians fell back beyond the Etscb.—
The Piedmontese monarch then gave bat
tle. His army was about 45,000 strong;
that of Radetzky 30,000, with Verona to
fallback upon. On the 6th of May, Charles
Albert gave orders to advance, and a gen
eral battle ensued. The Austrians were
driven from St. Lucia. The resistance
was, however, so firm that the Sardinians
had to fall back to the position they held
in the morning. The present Emperor
of Austria aud his brother, the Archduke
Albrecht, were present at this engage
ment. The Lombards became alarmed.—
They had' fancied that they could drive
everything before , them. A panic seized
upon them. In vain did Charles Albert
exhort them to be firm. A retreat was
resolved upon. The retreat became a
flight. Cremona fell on tlfe 31st. A mis
erable attempt was made tbrdefend the Ad
da. On the 3d of August Radetzky was
at Lodi, close on their heels. On the Bth
he was before Milan. Charles Albert en
deavored to defend the city. He met with
no support. The town surrendered, and
Radetzky entered in triumph on the 6th.
The campaign ended with the defeat of
Charles Albert at Novara, on the 23d
March, who abdicated the same night in
favor of Victor Emanuel, the presentkim*
Honors pressed in from -garters on
Radetzky. , TJ~young Emperor, Francis
. Jvsepnj sent the Archduke William of
Austria expressly to Milan to thank Ra
detzky and present him with the order of
the Golden Fleece. All the sovereigns of
Europe showered orders upon him. Ve
nice still held out, but the news of Gor
gey’s submission in Hungary, and the treaty
of peace ‘ with Sardinia concluded on, the
14th of August, made the proud Queen of
the Adriatic submit. On the 30th of
August Radetzky made his solemn entry
into the city of the Dogs. An attempt at
insurrection was made at Milan in Febru
ary, 1853. Radetzky put it down with a
hand of iron, and confiscated the property
of those Lombards who had become Sar
dinian subjects. This nearly led to a new
outbreak with Sardinian subjects. All
diplomatic relations between the two coun
tries were -interrupted. This obnoxious
decree has at length been revoked by the
young Emperor in his recent visit to Lom
The Police Gazette publishes a list of
26 murders which have been committed iu
New York city since January Ist, 1857.
But one execution has tiiken place, that of
the colored man, Dorsey. Three persons
convicted of capital crimes are now under
sentence of death —Michael Oancemi, for
the murder of Policeman Anderson; Jas.
Rogers," for the number of John Swanscy;
and James Shepherd, for arson in the first
A remarkable feature in this appalling
list of crime is the : fact that in a large ma
jority of cases no circumstances have poin
ted with certainty to the criminal. Sus
picions have, indeed,' rested upon parties
in most eases; but these have been in some
instances unfounded, and in others too
vague to warrant the finding of an indict
ment ; and up to the present moment there
is a long catalogue shrouded in mystery.
The Bond street tragedy created more
excitement than any other in the list.—
The horrible dgtaila, of the assassination ;
the arrest and trial if Mrs. Cunningham;
the various phases the case assumed, are
fresh in the public memory.
The murder of Policeman Anderson,
while in the discharge of hia duties, next
to the Burdcll numder, attracted most at
tention. ' A great funeral procession, in
which marched .the entire police force of
the city and an immense retinue of citi
zens, attested the interest which the event
excited. The Jtalin, Ganceini, has. been
twice tried for the murder. The jury.disa
greed oh the fifst trial; He was convicted
on the second, and sehtcnced by Judge:
but his counsel have carried the
case to the Court of Appeals on a writ of
error. : '•'■■■-* ,; -

iljj-te te in 1851.
The paost alariaiing feature in these ca
scs is Apparent absence of any motive for
assassination. Many murders have seem
ingly been committed for thd mere love of
killing. Thus, a colored man j named Fran
cis Salters, was deliberately shot in Thom
as street, without the slightest provocation
or any motive of cupidity . The assassins,
upon committing the deed, jumped into
their carriage and*drove off, probably'with
out even knowing the name of their-victim,

powerful in France, and . invigorated be

the long contest, which did not end till the
subjection of the nobility, through the (cen

of the commons. It entered Holland, in

enthusiasm; enfranchising'' and uniting
provinces, and making burghers, and weav
ers, and artisans, victors over the highest
orders of Spanish chivalry, over the power
of the Inquisition, and the pretended ma
jesty of kings. Itpenethited Scotland; and
while it whirled along bore persuasion
among the glens and mountains; it shrunk
from no danger, and hesitated at no ambi

It infused itself into England, and pla

dissent; longing to introduce the rcigu of

Imprisoned, maimed, oppressed at home;
its, independent converts in Great Britain
looked beyond the Atlantic fori a better
world. Their energetic passions were nur-r
tured by trust in the Divine protection,
their power of will was safely entrenched
in their own vigorous creed ; and * under
the banner of the Gospel, with the fervent
and enduring love of the myraids who in
Europe adopted the stern simplicity of the
discipline of Calvin, They sailed for the wil

from hereditary power, from the sovereign

of both. The measure: of fame, for both,
was full and. overflowing. And yet, after
both have rested for more thamhalf a cen

rises up a defamer of Washington. Gen

and sternest to rebuke this sacrilege. But

The Hon. James A. Hamilton, a son wor

intimate friend, says that he is very much
grieved by that part of Ms- brother’s book,
the History of the Republic, which
he attributes all or most of Washington's
letters to his father ; and requests that
friend to take every proper occasion to say
that he, disapproves of the. not well-fbun

&e settlement of an ac
count with neighbor, found
it impossible to xnake changer within three
cents. Some days after, while the Judge
was on the Bench, in the midst of 'a very
important cas£,. the avaricious man whose
brains could not rest while three cents were
absent from his pocket; appeared .in the
court room and unceremoniously desired
the Judge to grant him an interview. The
Judge arrested the progress of the case,
and addressing the counsel, said apologeti
cally, “ St4top a f-f-few moments, n-p
-please, till ! speak to my neighbor p-p-P.”
He therefore descended from' the
and accompanied P. to a; private room,
where, as he expected, he received a de
mand for t|re delinquent three cents. He
paid it,. de|aa4ded a. receipt, and returned
to the court room, convulsing every one
present remark: “ Th-they s-sis-say
that at th-Hie m-mpment any one .d-dies
another is b-b-borh, and th-the soul ofth
the one th-that d-dies go-go-goes into th
