Court ,f that Stato, and uvailed him sill'ol the fine library of that eminent jurist. Aliliouirli n nulivo of tho State of Maine, Prentiss had none of the pro juilii es uf his people, and readily adapt ed himself lo Southern customs and institutions. In 1S20 ho was admitted to the liar. Mr. l'miiis. was tmull in stulnro, nut living over five feet eifht inehes in height, and was deformed hy liis right foot being smaller than tho left olio, and which turned under so thai he Ured a eano in walking.

In 1844 Mr. Prentiss moved lo New Orleans (whore the writer had precod cd him; and lorniea a partnership wnn his old confrere. (Jenerul Huston. In January, 1848, ho was employed In n suit against Jnmes Irwin, Ihe aon-in-law of llonrv Clay, to set usido certain deeds of trust made by James Irwin lo hi brother Andrew, who lived in l en ni'ssee. on the irruund of fruud. liun dull Hunt, one of Ihe ablest advocates ol the bar. was retained to delend Mr. Irwin. Tho caso occupied threo days in luking tho testimony, and creuled ncneral intereal. On the leHlimony be ing closed the court adjourned, until the next day, for tho uignment ol the case. There was a great ileal ol" leel ing on both sides, til d no little clash ing and spurring beiwo n the counsel. As Ihey were going duwn tho Court House steps, the writer being behind ilium, ll'inl observed, with a pninpnii", conflilenl ait, i Well, Prenlisa, 1 ralhur think you have, got on alliguior case lo handle." "Yes," replied I'reiiliss, with his hissing lisp, "it ia an ulhgutor aso, Hunt, uml I'm going to skin him lo-moriow. Anil In) Kept ins woru. Tho next day the court room Was crowded to its nltio-t cupucitr, Mr. I'rentias, in annulling up and eoinuivnt- iug upon the evidence before tho jury dealt in burula ol acuthiiig, wilhetiiig rtmctions on tho ctuiductol I tin do lohdant. "Why, gentlemen," said he, the evidence before Von nliowa that thin man, James Irwin, in robbing his uredilont, has not shown even the com mon honesty, of the high wa man, much h hiiccuraa, (or the highway man. In lakinif spoil dor il at tho risk of his life, while bo wan never known lo stoop ao low aa to poo me poor. Hore Mr. Prentiss mado a deep pause, and, at il reflecting on tho severity of the laniuauo bo had used, ho turned from the jury and tbua addreased the Court: ' Muy it pleano the Court, on reflection. I deem It my duty, in the presence of ihia vast assemblage, to tunoer an apology mr in ianu.w i have lust permitted to escape from my hps; (profound avnsation) for in the oldun (Jays of chivalry when knight er rantry prevailed, there a nobility. a generosity and magnanimity in the soul ot tho chivalrous nignwsyman never nosaeaaed by the defendant in this rase." The Court and counsel for tho defendant looked conloondotl, while n bust of irropreasihlo applause broke liinh from Him audience, mr. i remiss continued: 'I ihoniforn, feel compelled 10 do juslico to tho memory ol tho knightly honor ot the highwayman for having connected his namo with that ut a man so degraded and disgratwd, and mako my apology to theCvartlor the wrong I have commuted. i nen, rwlnrninn- in the IlirV. lie Said I "A more flilinir and appropriate comparf son, gentlemen, would be lo aaaocialc tbo namo of James Irwin Willi that ol ihnati-alLhv.liL'ht flncered nick poclwt, who robs you whilo uol kriowing that yo are robbed." T lis effect was blast ins and nain fullr wltheiinff, and which no effort of the genius and eloquence CLEARFIELD, PA., nf Ruiidull Hunt could obliterate. TriMi. tiss had skinned the alligator. The result wus that young Henry l Iny lrwin.lhooldoslson of Mr. Irwin.aspiri ted young mun only 22 Yea is old, sent by tho hands of hia second, Mr. Hubert Johnson, of Kentucky, a peremptory challenge to Prentiss. Tho friends of Mr. Prentiss. Kuillio Peyton, the Unit: ed Stales District Attorney, and the lute Alex. C. Bullitt, editor of the Pi cayune, advised him to declino tho chal lenge on the ground that lio was not responsible lor lunguatro used profes sionally, and that Mr. James Irwin on ly had the right to demand satisfaction, which was done to save ynung Ir win, as they felt the duel would move fulitl to him. lint Prentiss mid the challenge stated that young Irwin's father was unablo to attend lo sucn mutters, and if ho declined it would only lead to aUvel tight i that lit ad mired Ihe spirit ol the gallant boy und appreciated his noble feelings, and ihere being no alternative, ho wus compelled to L'ivo him satisfaction. Tho chal lengo was consequently accepted, and time given lo Mr. Prentiss to ariangu his ull'uirs. In the meanwhile (icncrul Huston wus called in consultation. Ho advised that if it was possible lo cfl'ect n reconciliation, it should he done, as tho result in any alternative would prove fatally disastrous to the families of both parties, the aunt of young Ir win being the wife of John Bell, ot Tennessee, who was the great friend of Prentiss. (Jen. Huston suggested that II. (J. Hurney and U. F. Morse be selected to act us umpires, and accom pany ihe parlies to the ground. Tho principals and seconds met ut Puss Chrisliunin February, 181K The weap ons chosen were pistols, ut ten puces It wus then proposed to Mr. Irwin's seconds that Harney and Morse bo call ed in us umpires before tho principals were placed, w hich wus finally agreed In, subject to bo accepted or rejected. Alter coiisnlluiuiii Harney unit Morse drew up the billowing : "Tho difficulty between Mr. Irwin and Mr. Prentiss having been referred to lis by their respective tiiends, wo are of tho npininn that Mr. I'routiss liuveleil nut ol llio recnr,l in uie use oi the offensive expressions coinpluincd ol, which it is Hieivtoi'c Ihoniuy oi .nr. I'reiiliss cbeei fully, frankly, und fully to relruet. This wus accepted by tho friends of the conihutiihls, and Prentiss, nccoid ingly, with his characteristic cordial and innnaninions feelings, mniio the umeiidu Ironnrublo lo the great joy ot the Irieiids and families of both parlies. For several dnys, however, telcgrnph c rumors tilled thu country that n hos lilo meeting bud tuken pluce. and that l'niitias was ki ed. .Mr Uuv alter wurd wrote Prentiss tt letter id thuiiTis and gratitude for his noblu conduct. lboseqnullo Ins happy recolicina lion finally ended in a terrible tragedy. luiing Irwin luiiigol a ensinvc, higu toned until iv, could mil easily banish Irom his mind the stuin that he con eeived had been fixud upon his lather's) honor. Jiotwithstiinding tho fullest retruction that Prentiss bud made, wub expressions ot llio deepest regret, and beanies writing a nolo to iiuncn. jon.i son honoring and appreciating the gal lantly of young li win, and agum muK intf tho most generous concessions, young Irwin writhed under tho sting ot condcmniilion wnnn ne ten puuiic opinion had pionounccd tigumst his father. In vain be struggled to free himself from this hideous phantom which haunted him day and night. He- sorting lo dissipation to drive away its memories, ho indulged to excess, and in his delirium, alter being up ull night, hu retired tu his room ut thu St. Charles Hotel ubcul 4 o'clock in the morning, when soon afterw ard a pistol shot w as heard, and the proud spirit ot young Henry Clny Irwin was loiind to have tukeu its flight to another world. THE VALVE OE VOXDJMEXTS. By condiments wo moan substances like sugar, spices, vinegar and others that are employed to impart flavor and piquancy to tho staple lootls They are usually regurded as nou es senlisl, and some writers on dietetics have gono so fur as to condemn their use, unless in ruro instunces mid in the most infinitesimal proportions. J, ike all good things they aro liable to ho abused, but when properly used they aro vuluitble elements inourduily food. Prof. Voit, of Munich, limn whom there is no higher uuthority on such a subject, considers that their impor- tunco has not been sufficiently recog nixed. It is not enough that tood should ooniam uhmont iry principles in proper quantity ; lo render it really nutritious there must also he a supply ol condiment. These huvo been coin pured to oil in u niucliinu. which nei ther Inukea good Ibu watu of material nor supplies motive power, yet causes it to work bettor they render csseu Hal scivicu in thu processes id nutri Hon though Ihey n re not ol themselves uhlo lo prevent the waste ol any part of the body. "A dietary deprived of condiments, a mere mixture ot ulilneii lary principles without tostu or smell, is unendiiruble, and causes, nausea und vomiting." Il is not until condiments aro added to aliment that it really be comes tood. Kxireinu hunger muy en able us to dispense with them, as it muy compel us lo duvour w hut at other limes would be disgusting, but under ordinary circumstances ihey are uu esseutiui part of our diet. Condiments bavo au important in flueiice upon thu process ui digestion and nutrition. The mere sight or thought of a savory dish "makes the mouth water, --that is, II makes the salivury glands pour out their secre tion copiously, which is an important stage in digestion, especially lor cer tain article of food. Experiments made upon dogs show that a similar effect is produced upon the gastric se cretion, and lb us the work ol digestion is further promoted, The loss ol thu sense of lusle would be not merely a lists of enjoyment, but a positive inju ry to tho digestive system. The very smell ot food muy do ui good, just as certain odor will restore a person who has fronted. . It does -not follow because Condi mcnis are uselul, that we may not have too much ot them; on the con trarv. their beat ell'ocl depends upon llieir being used in moderation. 1 lie more decided tho flavor ot any article ol tuod, the sooner does It pull upon Ibe appetite. Jl is una ol the peculiar merits of French cookery thai flavors are so delicately blended ; no one is specially prominent, and yet by their different comhiiialions a wonderlul va riety of appetising effects is produced We Yankees, like the English, are apt to use condiments in a cotrso, reckless way, and thus miss their liner and more exquisite effects, boeidca losing much ot ilia henent that might be do privod Irom them. By a nicer cars in their employment, iho plaiuesl and simplest diet might bo mado at once more) delicious and more digestible. Journal o! CArmofry. IHft'.REPU PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN.

Thomas Ewing Sherman, son ol tho General, who wus curulully educated for the bur, according lo thu desiro ol his tulhur, prefers the Church and is about to go to Europe to lit himself for the priesthood. This fact is one of more than ordinary interest. Young Sherman incurs the displeasure of bis lulher opposes his wUhus with evident regret in thus turning Irom tho puth murked out for him by his fond parent and retiring from thu world to under take the arduous and pecuniarily un profitable labors of a clerical life in the order ot Jesuits. To most peop.e this chok e of a profession will seem a sacri fice, and many will pronounce it lool ish. This young man hud a brilliutil and promising f uture before him. The favorite son ot the (icncrul of llio Army, whose tumo us a soldier is world-wide ; connected on ull sides by alliance in social life tho most powerful and re spocluble ; carefully educated and pre pared for tho legal profession nothing seemed wanting but his own ambition lur him to enter upun a lite radiant with prom iso und lull of assurances ol success and worldly happiness. Prob ably no young man in tins country ever had more powernu reasons lor adopt ing the courso ol life murked out for him hy bis lather. General Sherman had evidently set great store by the young man, and entertained high hopes ol bis success in mo. lie nau sent nun to Georgetown College, wbero ho took iho full course of classics and mathe matics. Yule instructed him in the natural sciences and modern languages, and the St. Louis Law School uf tho Washington University graduated him but a few weeks ago. Tbo stem Gen eral hud probably cast the horoscope of his son with bright visions of a pub lic life at the Bur, on the llench, in the Nutionul Councils and Cabinet, and, perhaps, in even a higher position And theso wero all within reuch and reason, it the young man bud fairly de veloped the Sherman Ewing character us exempnnud c-y his kinsmen on ooiu sides of bis houso. But this young scion of 'the Sherman slock decided otherwise, and as is evident from his published letter to his kinsman, Pofes sor Ruber, not without a painful strug gle between his natural affections und religious convictions, a fact which docs credit to him as a worthy son, solicit ous to render the blow to hi stern but kind lutber as light as possible. He s.tys that ho takes the lull responsibil ity of tho step as, indeed, he alono must and without his luther "ap. proval or consent" to whom the young mini's choice must indued have ap peared "startling and strange." The occurrence is notable as an act of inde pendence, in view of the surroundings, of a choice hy a young man with every thing to bind him to the world of u calling and profession, which, in our tune and country, is not surrounded by attractions fur pride or ambition. Young Sherman is now in liis twenty- third year. His term of probation ol seven years, according lo the rigorous discipline ot the Jesuits, will expire with his thirtieth your tho youngest ago if we may use the term allowed or oidliialion by this order. 1 ueti he will bo fairly and fully launched upon his new cureer 8 celibate lulher in the Church of liome. Should he prove pulpit man of a high order, great possibilities await him, lor the Old Church, as history shows, is ever politic and utilizes brains and position in the shrewdest and most tolling manner, it is not dillicult to imagine, if young Sherman possesses a tube of the quail- tic of a Mussillon, a Iloiirdulone or a Chateaubriand, that In return to his native land would creulo a decided sonsulion. Indued, it may be thai the name of Sherman, already fumihar to the public ear in connection with a General, a Cabinet Minister, a Senator and a Judge, In say nothing of old Roger of the Revolution, will yet ho associated with the now dignity of an American Card'nal.

In storing potatoes for seed or culuiury purposes, the muin object In viow is lo prevent I their germination, so that it may not bo necessary to pick out the Dunning eyes, a process wnicn invariant)' in duces a rupid deterioration in quality and strengiii. lo prevent iius, me store places should be wholesome, dry. and frerltj ventilated. I n extremely cold weather the lomporuturo must he rais ed hy artificial means, hut an excess ol warmth is to be curctuiiy guarded against ; it is sufllcient lo keep the tem perature just ahovo Ireezing point, tho arrival of which may bo proved, in the absence of a thermometer, by the ap peuianco of ico on a sliullow pan ol water purposely kept in tbo store placo. These measures suffice in tho case of potatoes intended for planting out, but where they nro required lor domestio consumption the tutther pre caution must hu liiken of shielding them from the action uf light. If this bo not done, tho tubers are apt to turn green, a change which is nothing to their detriment for seeding purposes, but which is attended by chemical al terations that give them a bitter taste, and quite spoils them for domestic use.

No sooner bud this been done than the pet bounced him and begun ' to "chaw'1 on his throat. Tho crowd thought that this wus only some part of the show, and looked on wilh . in creased interest. Thopoormon yelled ; but as ho was in the huhit of yelling and making a great noise when he Was exhibiting tho bear, no attention was paid to them. Presently the blocd rushed out und Borniehi fell. Some one then rushed lo his assistance, und found thai ha wus dead. The hour hud taken a large pieco ol flesh out (r bis noeli and devoured it, and in a few minutes the showman was dead. Il then dashed across tho minds of the lookers on what had hap pened. Tho struggles of tho man with llio bloody monster was terrible. Tho bear was shot, and Borniehi was buried in the town cemetery. Thoro aro many profound remarks of Lord Bucon upon the philosophy of religion strangely overlooked by Hur bert Spencer, Huxley, Tyndull and others, who glory in being his disciples within tho spheru of the inductive phikisophy in its application to the fuels und phenomena of nature. Thus, for example, thoir great master has said that a little philosophy inclinclh man's mind to utbeiein, but depth in philosophy bringolb men's minds about lo religion ; for while the mind of mun lookeih upon socond cause scattered, it may sometimes rest in them and go no further j but when it Uholdeth the chain of them confederate and linked together, it must needs fly lo Provi dence und Deity. And with direct re- to re nee to tho function and limits of thu human understanding, he further says, "tho prerogative of (Ju l oxtond- elh as well lo the reason os to ino in ot man, so that wo arc to obey If is law, though wo find a reluctnlion in our reason."

''To morrow morning I will go and draw that deposit out of the bank," says the wakeful merchant, whoso suspicions have been aroused as to its safety. But tbo true believer can lio down and sleep serenely. His deposit for eternity is secure. Good old Bishop Aylmer, one day looking upon bis drowsy flock, com menced and read them a chapter from iho Hebrew Bible, to which of course they listened with open-mouthed as tonishment, only to be reproved by tho good man for sleeping when he was preaching what ihey could understand, and waking up when be was reading something ihey could not.

This shows a mindful fondness which wonts occasion in which to express it self. And llio smaller tho occasion seized upun, the moro intensely aft'eo- . donate is Ibe attention paid. A young Parisian, noted forhisgraco and readiness a a second in many duels, was asked by a friend to accom- . puny him to tho mayor sotuce to utnx his signattiro ns a witness to the mat rimonial registry.

Ho who hears the Word and doc not do il is a monster in religion. Ue is all bead and ears, having noilher hands to work with nor foot to wlk with. Thore is a disease to which children are Bubjcct, callod tho rickets, wherein their heads swell as large as two beads, and their legs are crooked, which binders their going. We have many rickety Christians; they hear much and iheir heads swell with emp ty notions and undigested opinions, but their walking is pcivorso. Every such person is a mocker ot God, a de ceiver of himself, a discouragor ot min isters, a barren soil, a bad servant, a beholder ol his natural face in a glass, a builder of bis houso upon the sand.

You must measure strength of man by Ihe power of tholcelings he subdues, not hy tho power of those which sub duo bim. And hence, composure i very often Iho bighost result of strength. Did wo never eeo a man receive a fla grant insult, and only grow a lilllo pulo, and then reply quietly? That was a man spiritually strong. Or did we never see a man in anguish stand a ii carved outof solid rock, mastering bim sell f or ono bearing a hopeless daily trial remain silent, and never toll the wot Id what it was that cankorod his borne peace? That is strength.
