brains to keep "the run" of these new parties, but we

they do, we'll publish it.

hope the fusion sentiment will precail, and that the nu

into one party, as much as it can be done by the mighty
leaders. It surely cannot be impassible to force "Ameri-
Cans" to kiss the lips of the niggers. It was tried last fall,
and with a little more exertion, it might succeed. The

"not less than six eminent barristers in as many mouth: , ."

his remarks, and gave the company grace: " For this and

geP'ELMIRA A FAST -TOWN-A GARROTING
C.i.su.—We live in a fast age, and as th e in
habitants of Elmira are as " fast" as any
people we wot of b etween hero and sun
down, as a matter of course all the follies
and. vices of the age—we'll say nothing
about the virtues of the world here or else
where—are imitated here in the Queen City
of the Southern Tier, that is, on a small
scale.. We have our drinking saloons, our
gambling establishments, our houses of ques
tionable character; we have our loafers, cur
rowdies, our thieves, our vagrants, our burg
lars, our highway robbers; we have our
watchmen, our watch-house, our Police *Jus
tice; we have a jail that is kept filled with
''Who bare nothing else to do
But just to walk about."
We pay heavy taxes. live fashionably, and
enjoy the world hugely ; we have railroads,
and canals, and gas lights; we have three
daily papers, a number of churches, and a
Female College. In fact, we have every
thing that is useful and useless—morality
and immorality—riches and poverty—min
gled, in as heterogeneous a mass as it is
in the largest of the Atlantic cities. If we
have nll these things, it will not surprise
anybody. to learn that we have our garroters
also.—A few nights since, as we were re
turning home, we were compelled to be the
witness of an attempt to garotte a woman

...the man put his left arm around her neck;
and before she had time to call for help,
another Patlander stepped up froth behind,
and threw his right arm also around the

roting; and we would have gone immediately
to the rescue of the almost strangled woman;
called the watch, or done something else
equally astonishing, bad We not learned,
years ago, " that discretion is the better part
of valor." We stopped a moment—vainly
endeavoring to calm our "angry passions,"
all the while—when the desperadoes seem
ingly relaXed their embrace of the woman's
neck, and the next moment, the dulcet notes
of the garroted female greeted our ears:
"Don't, Hughy, dear! ,Don't Patrick, me

a struggle made she ; and 'dropping her head
alternately to the right and the left ; in • close
proximity to the bushy whiskers of Hughy
and Patrick, she seemed perfectly resigned
to her fate. We started instanter on our
winding way for home, and would not have
stopped again had a dozen attempts been
made, on our route, to garotte any number
of good and lawful citizens of our embryo

In Trivia, The Secret of Power, the authoress
has excelled herself. Vivia, the heroine, is a
beautiful, gifted and inspiring maiden, whose
presence is a life-giving 'power to all within her
sphere : whose influence, like magic or rather
like grace, develops the better nature of all with
whom she is brought in.contact---so redeeming,
elevating and inspiring is her benignant influ
ence upon the dreaming girl-artist Theodora,
and the poor, but gifted and inspiring peasant
boy, Wakefield. Her "Secret Power" consists
in her realizing FAITH in goodness, wisdom and
efficiency, latent in every human - creature, made
in the likeness of the Creator; in her sympa
thetic CHARITY that leads her to seek and draw
forth these bidden treasures in all souls: and
her animating- HOPE that assures her of victory.
With these spiritual agencies of Faith, Charity
and Hope. she overcomes in herself and in oth
ers, the fearful powers of the World, - the Flesh
and the Devil. Like her Divine Master, she
comes to bring light to the darkened, hope to
the despairing, and strength to the weak. When
ever in the narrative she appears, it is as if a
sun-burst lighted up the scene. It - would be
impossible within this short limit to give a fair
idea of the character of this work. In the first
chapter the interest of the reader is powerfully
aroused, and is kept keenly alive to the close of
the volume. The story opens with the descrip
tion of a snow storm on the Alleghanies, through
which the bright and beautiful orphan, alone or
attended by her dog, wanders down the fearful
passes towards the valley, endeavoring to reach
the mansion where her grandfather, Colonel
Malmaison, (who had ten years before, discard
ed her father,) - lies dying and penitent, and
praying to see his orphan grand-daughter. But
in the two-fold darkness of night and storm,
the wandering child loses her way, and chances
to reach a lone convent, where she seeks refuge
and is kindly received and comforted by the
TER Bonnrn ROVER. By Emerson Bennett,
author of "Clara Moreland," "The Prairie
Flower," "Lehi Leoti," &c., &c.—
Complete in two large duodecimo volumes,
neatly bound in paper cover. Price One
Perhaps it is enough to say of the Border
Rover, that it is one of Emerson Bennett's best
productions, and will be sure to delight all our
readers who are pleased - with the Prairie Flower
and Clara Moreland; to which it may, be con
sidered a companion—the scenes and the inci
dents being something similar, and yet the story
totally unlike either of the others. The scene
of the Border Rover is in the Territory of Kan
sas, beginning at Independence, Missouri; and
extending all over the plains or prairies to the
Rocky Mountains. It is full of adventure and
hair breadth escapes, love, romance and humor,
and the characters are trappers, traders, hun
ters, travelers, guides, Indians, &c. Further
more, the scenes are geographically cOrrect,the
incidents of actual occurrence, and those who
wish to see Kansas as it was,a few years since,
will find in this most exciting story some very
accurate and valuable information.
Of Mr. Bcmactt, personally, we know nothing;
having never seen him, or even heard a person
speak of him who has been honored with his ac
quaintance. But his reputation is the common
property of all lovers of the noble maxims which
ho inculcates, the morality which he teaches,
and the virtue which he adorns, in a style at
onee the purest and most fascinating. Under
his glowing pen, vice is stripped of its gaudy
coloring and held up for abhorrence in all its
haggard deformity ; while virtue, humble and
lowly, clothed in rags, is won from its timid
retreat, and brought forth that the good in
heart may do it homage.
Let those who have never yet been familiar
with his writings read, and they can judge for
themselves whether we have over estimated the
abilities of Emerson Bennett as a writer.
Both of these works are in press and:will be
published by T. B. PETERSON, No. 102 Chestnut
street, Phila., on the 7th and I4th of March.—
Copies of either will be sent to any one to any

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE GLOBE.
HARRISBUTLG, March 7, 1857.
MR. EDITOR thought a short ac
count of a week's sojourn in this city, might
interest some of your readers. I have there
fore, taken my porcupine in hand, to spin
you out something in the shape of a commu
nication. I left Huntingdon county, where
I had spent a pleasant winter, in a small
town, on the bank of the Juniata, and arrived
here on Monday morning at eight Cclock.—
The city was quite brisk ; that being the day
_Convention met. Politicians
and every body else, seemed interested in its
proceedings ; all seeming ,to realize that the
next Governor was to be chosen that day. I
stopped at the United States Hotel. It is a,
good house—gets up big, dinners—big prices
also. ,On Tuesday, the city was nearly de
serted—the Legislature having adjourned un
til the 9th inst., and many of the citizens
went to attend., the inauguration. Wednes
day evening I visited the reading room of the
Young Mens' Christian Association. They
have quite an extensive library of useful
books, and their tables aro covered with late
newspapers, magazines, &e. This is a laud
able enterprise, and the originators and.man
agers of it, deserve credit for thus providing
a place where young men may pleasantly
and beneficially pass their evenings, instead
of in saloons and grog shops. John D. Gough,
the popular temperance lecturer, is to address
this association next Thursday etening.—
There will be a "shaking among the dry bones
and rum bottles."
I met with my esteemed friend, Max.
GREENE. He is about establishing a month
ly periodical, to be called the Pennsylvania
Magazine, in this place. Any one acquain-.
ted with him, need not be told that it will
be ably conducted. I visited, in company,
with him, most of the places worthy of note,
in this vicinity. The cemetery, one mile
north-west of Harrisburg 4 Here, I noticed
the names of many persons . who have figured
in the past history of this State. Many beau
tiful monuments are here erected in memory
of the dead. The grave of 'Harris, the foun
der of Harrisburg, on the bank of ,the Sus
quehanna, a short distance below the bridge,
is surrounded by a high iron railing, and en
closed is the trunk of the tree, some eight or
ten feet, high, to which the Indians had him
tied. We visited the State Capitol. The
Legislature -not being in session, we, for
awhile, took their place. Had the pleasure
of, taking a seat on the chair on which John
Hancock sat, when Congress passed the Dec
laration of Independence. It is
. now the
Speaker's chair in the House of Representa
tives, being brought from Independence Hall,
in Philadelphia. The view from the cupola
of the Capitol, is beautiful. The country on
the one side, as far as the eye can reach, is
covered with fertile farms; the buildings in
the distance, seem mere white specks. On
the other side, the placid waters of the Sus

to a close, and if you think such scribbling

Execution of Louis XVI.
At ten minutes past ten they reached the
foot of the scaffold. It had been erected in
front of the palace of the Tuileries, in the
square called after Louis XIV, and near the
spot where stood the statue of the most im
pure of kings—a king who died tranquilly
in his bed. The condemned man was three
minutes descending from the . carriage.—
Upon quitting the Temple he had refused
the riding coat which Clery had offered to
him and now appeared in a brown coat,
white waistcoat, gray breeches and white
stockings. His hair was not disordered,
nor was any change perceptible in his coun
tenance. The Abbe Firmont was dressed in
black. A large open space-had been kept
round the scaffold, with cannon ranged on
all sides, while beyond, as far as the eye
could reach, stood an unarmed multitude.—
The executioner had opened the door of the
coach, and descending, Louis fixed his- eyes
upon the soldiers who surrounded him, and,
with a terrible - voice, cried, "Silence 1" The
drums ceased to beat, but at a signal from
the officer the drummers again went on
" What treason is this?" he shouted. "I
am lost! lam lost!" For it was evident
that, up to this moment, he had been cling
ing to hope. The executioners now ap
proached to take' off a part of his clothes ;
he repulsed them fiercely, and himself re
moved the collar from his neck. But all the
blood in his body seemed to be turned into
fire when they sought to tie his hands.
" Tie my hands I" he shrieked., A struggle
was inevitable—it came.—lt is indisputable,
that Louis fought with his ex
ecutioners. The Abbe Edgeworth stood by,
perplexed, horrified, speechless. At last as
his master seemed to look inquiringly at
him, he said, "Sir,, in this additional outrage
I only see a last trait of the resemblance
between your majesty and the God who will
give you your reward."
At these words, the indignation of -the
man gave way to the humility of the Chris
tian, and Louis said to the executioners, "I
will drain the cup to the dregs." They tied
his hands, they cut off his hair, and then,
leaning on the arm of his confessor, he began
with a slow tread and sinking demeanor, to
mount the steps, then very steep, of the guil
lotine. Upon the last step, however, he
seemed suddenly to rouse, and walked rapid
ly across to the other side of the scaffold ;
when, by a signal commanding silence, he
exclaimed, "I die innocent of the crimes im
puted to me." His face was now very red,
and, according to the narrative of his confes
sor, his voice was so. loud that it could be
heard through the streets as far as the Point
Tournament. Some other expressions were
distinctly heard: I pardon the authors of my
death ; and I pray heaven that the blood
you are about to shed may never be visited
upon France." He was about to continue,
when his voice was drowned by the renewed
rolling of-the drums, at a signal which it is
affirmed, was given by the comedian Dugay
on in anticipation of the orders of Saterre.—
" Silence! be silent!" cried. Louis XVI,
losing all self-control, and stamping violent
ly with his foot. Richard, one of the execu
tioners, then seized a pistol, and took aim at
the King. It was necessary to drag him
along by force. With difficulty fastened to
the fatal plank, he continued to utter horri
ble cries only interrupted by the fall of the
knife, which instantly struck off his head.
Samson raised it aloft, and showed it to the
people. And the people shouted, "Long
live the Republic I"—Louis Blanc's history
of the French Revolution.-

From the earliest period to the present time, the history
of every nation, ancient and modern, being separately
given. By S. G. GOODIMii, author of several worksof
tory, •Peter Parley's Tales,' &c.
It is believed that the above work will be very acceptar
ble to the American public. It is the result of years of
toil and labor, assisted in his researches by several scholars
of known ability, and has been got up at a great expense
by the proprietors. No pains have been spared in the ex
ecution of the Illustrations and Maps, which are prepared
expressly for this work. Indeed, all the other historical
writing of Mr. Goodrich, sink into insignificance, when
compared to this, the result of.his riper and matnrer years.
It is admitted that one hundred dollars could not purchase
the same matter in any other shape, and the publishers
confidently expect, in consideration of the great literary
value of the work, the large sum expended in preparing
it for the press, and the exceedingly moderate price at
which it is offered, that it will be favorably received by
every lover of good books. Many of our first scholars, di
vines and gentlemen, who ]rave examined the work, have
_given it their unqualified approbation and commendation,
which it richly deserves.
