whom she was pretty sure to meet whenever
.she ventured—never without a watehlnl at
tendant — beyond the chateau grounds They
had always a very respectful, yet, as it were,
kindly familiar, greeting for her ; and hand
some Paul—it was impossible that .Mademoi
selle Benudesert, slightly impressionable as she
was in that direction, could help remarking
that lie was a very handsome young fellow
bad often a fresh hoquet to present, whatever
was the season of the year. These rencontres
do not appear to have be*i> reported to Mad
ame de Vautpre or the Abbe Morlaix, or what
they might, and justly, have deetrred the imper
tinent audacity of t lie JMperhs, would, there
ran be little doubt, have been summarily re
But it wa3 not such love as that with which
Paul Delpech had the vanity to believe he lmd
inspired the girl-heiress, that, by the time she
touched upon her sixteenth birth-day, had ban
ished evi-ry tinge of color from the drooping
maiden's chock, light from her lyes, wasted
Tier finely rounded form, and still burned in her
veins with the fever of a consuming passion.—
'Adrienne Beandesert, child or girl of exquisite
sensibility was, be it remembered, morally iso
lated in her relative's magnificent abode, with
po one to love, aud beloved bv none ; the ach
ing void thus created becoming, vvitli every
passing day, more completely monopolized, fill
ed to bursting by the imaged memories of her
mother and sister ; of that tender mother, that
sweet sister, who so fully reciprocated her
gushing, passionate love ; but whom she was
only permitted to sre once in each dreary year,
and in the constraining presence of Madame
la Baron lie ; to correspond with only at .stated
intervals, and under the same chilling supervis
ion. Adricnne's heart beat wildly, rebellious
)y, against those cruel, unnatural restraints ;
and who at. all conversant with poor human
nature, will feel surprise chat, finding her aunt
inexorable, callous, deaf to her tears, entreat
ies, prayers, the indignant girl began to listen
with kindling eyes and glowing cheeks to re
marks upon Madame de Vautpre's fast-failing
health, haling herself the while, as she after
wards declared, for the involuntary feeling re
vealed in those keenly marked, tell tale sighs
that in moments of great irritation, words of
the like significance, eagerly caught up, repeat
ed, exaggerated, distorted, escaped her lips;
or that, after a last, supreme effort, preceded
by sets of prayers, gone through as if they were
so many incantations —votive garlands, suspen
ded upon statues of the Virgin and saints—to
shake .Madame de Vautpre's fixed resolve, had
failed, the girl with much less excuse, because
with more deliberation, poured forth her pas
sionate feelings to her mother in writing ?
This letter she thought to have sent off sur
reptitiously, but the treachery of the servant to
whom it was intrusted, placed in the hands of
M. Morlaix—all the griefs, resentments, hopes,
and anticipations by which her mind was di
tracted ! The abbe was profoundly disturbed
upon reading the intercepted letter ; and im
mediately sending for Mademoiselle Beaudes
ert, sternly upbraided her with the black in
gratitude displayed iu the sinful effusion she
had dared to pen ; dwelt especially upon the
heinous crime of but imagining the death of
her kind relative and benefactress ; concluding
with a solemn warning that one of God's heav
iest judgments was to curse the wicked with
the fulfilment of their own evil wishes.
Adrienne Beandesert, was rebuked, humbled,
terrified —but not softened or subdued, as she
would have been to tears of deepest contrition,
had but a few words of kindness or compas
sion mingled with the abbe's stern homily.—
The strong consciousness that whatever seem
ing color or justification, her wild, lsaty ex
pressions might give to the abbe's inju
rious denunciations, her heart had never for
one moment harbored the dreadful thoughts
to which those denunciations pointed, helped
to sustain her yielding, flexile nature dining
the terrible interview ; and not till escaped to
the privacy of her own chamber, did she sink
upon the floor, crushed, convulsed by the rend
ing agony of humiliated pride, degrading ac
cusation, and bitter self reproach.
Xo doubt, too, she felt, as the tumult ot con
flicting passions calmed somewhat, that M.
Morlaix would deem it his duty to place the
letter, blackened with his own comments, be
fore Madame de Vautpre ; and then farewell
forever to the visions of future independence
and grandeur in which she had, it seemed, not
thoughtlessly only, but wickedly indulged.—
Not that Adrienne Beaudesert, child-thought
ed girl, valued present or prospective splendor
very highly, but her mother did—as we, re
membering how impatiently Madame Beaudes
ert bore the evanishment of her own dream of
youthful grandeur, can easily believe—and at
her yearly visits, talked privately of the little
else than the coming, though it might be dis
tant, time, which was to compensate a thous
andfold for the bitter past, the halting, unsat
isfactory present. Here was a new grief, but,
as it proved, an imaginary one only ; as the
abbe, whether wisely or not the sequel will
show, did not communicate or mention the con
tents of the letter to Madame de Vautpre. Du
ring these painful passages in Mademoiselle
Beaudesert's girl-life, and indeed almost from
flie first day, of her domiciliation at the Chat
eau d'Km, Jules Delpech had contrived to keep
himself acquainted with all that passed there;
and with the blind infatuation of a foregone
conclusion, persisted ia persuading himself, or
trying to do so, that the change in Adriennne's
personal appearance, her reported fits of moody
melancholy, were solely attributable to a grow
ing and invincible attachment to his son—an
attachment that would perhaps be openly avow- ■,
ed when the tomb closed over Madame de '
Vautpre—an event which, he believed, would
not long be waited for. Xor was this sinister
belief or trust unfounded.

REPUBLICAN COUNTY CONVENTION.
The call of the County Committee for a
Republican Convention, and the Committee*
of Vigilance for the election districts, are giv
en this week. We propose to embrace the
present opportunity by throwing out some sug
gestions, (in accordance with a promise made
soon after the last Convention) which we be
lieve it would be of advantage to the Repub
lican party to adopt.
The Delegate system, as practiced by all
parties iu this County, for years past, seems to
be the only feasible method of making party
nominations. It is open, no doubt, to many
serious objections, and liable to grrss abuse,
but on the whole, after long trial, proves to
be as practicable as any which has been sug
gested. The manner of holding County Con
ventions, might, however, be improved by a
little more care and system We suggest that
the Republicans of the County, consider the
following suggestions, and so instruct their
delegates to the coining Convention, that they
may be prepared to act, if thought advisable.
i. The Time, of Holding /he Convention.—
Heretofore our Conventions have met in the
evening, and oftentimes have not adjourned
until midnight; as a consequence, the business
lias been despatched in great haste, and with
out that deliberation which it should receive.
Many of the members are anxious not to be
detained over night, and it is not unusual for
a large number to leave as soon as the nomi
nees for the more important offices are select
ed. When there are contested seats and a
large number of offices to be filled, there is
not time enough in a single short evening to
do the business properly. But if the Conven
tion could be called in the afternoon, say at 3
or 4 o'clock, allowing time for organization
and the transaction of any preliminary busi
ness, theu adjourning, to meet iu the evening,
for the purpose of making nominations, ample
time would be had for care and deliberation.
11. Manner of Transacting Business. —The
experience of the last Convention must have
satisfied every one who has given it thought,
that the manner in which the business of the
Convention is conducted is calculated to give
rise to mistakes and to serious difficulty.—
More system should be used, and more care,
to avoid the danger of dissatisfaction. It has
been the custom in making nominations, to
take the election districts alphabetically, and
call the Durnes of delegates. Their votes are
then scored opposite the nameof thecaudidate
voted for. It' a mistake occurs ;n tallying,
there is no way to correct it, except by calling
the roll anew, as it is impossible to tell how
each delegate voted. Iu the case of a tie vote
as occurred last fall, wheu the clerks did not
agree in their tally, it gives an opportunity for
much dissatisfaction. This might all be obvi
ated, if there could be printed lists of the dele
gates, alphabetically arranged, which, would
show how every one voted, and by which any
mistake on the part of the clerks could be
detected and corrected. If the Convention
was called at the hour we have suggested,
such lists might be provided. This is the
maimer of voting in State Conventions. Every
one will see the convenience and safety of this
This slight change in the time and manner
of conducting the business of Conventions,
would obviate many difficulties which have
hitherto been in the way. If the suggestions
we have made ore thought of sufficient import
ance to merit notice, the coming Convention
could take such action as would authorize the
next County Committee to call the Convention
iu the afternoon.
AST- The Erie Railroad is finally at the
i bankrupt point. Saturday the shares sold at
5 per cent. It is understood that a tempore
i ry receivership will be appointed m a day or
two. which will at once relieve the road of a
large part of the expensive machinery of ad
ministration under which it is at present con
ducted, besides opening the way to an unem
barrassed change of policy in October. The
immediate eause for the appointment of a tem
porary receiver is that on Thursday last a judg
ment was recovered against the company for
$55,000, on sinking fund bonds, and an execu
tion issued the same day. Other suits were
pending in which the same questions were in
volved, and it became plain that if the boud
holders wished to protect the property of the
corporation, and hold it together for a re-or
ganization, some steps must be taken at once
A requisition by holders of nearly a milliou of
fourth mortgage bonds was made upon the trus
tees of the fourth and fifth mortgages, to pro
ceed immediately for a foreclosure and the ap
pointment of a receiver.
The Directors have also cut down the sala
ry of the President from $25,000 to $B,OOO.
It is presumed that an entirely new orgauiza.
tion of the mauageineut of the road will take
THE AUGUST ELECTIONS.
KENTUCKY. — The latest returns indicate that
the ten Representatives in Congress to which
the state is entitled, will be about equally di
vided between the Democrats and the Opposi
tion. The Democrats have about thirty or forty
majority on joint ballot in the Legislature,and
j they have elected their candidates for Cover-
I nor and other State officers by seven or eight
i thousand majority.
NORTH CAROLINA. —In the First Congres
! sional district, SMITH, the Opposition candidate
'is elected, being a gain. The other districts
i are in donbt.
TENNESSEE. — As far ns heard from twenty
| six counties, there is uu Opposition gain of up
wards of 2.000. It is thought probable that
j they have gained three Congressmen.
TEXAS —At New Orleans, on Saturday, it
was thought that Gen. SAM IIorsTON, inde
pendent, hud been elected Governor of Texas
by a majority of from two to five thousand.
FOREIGN NEWS. —The steamship Nora <Sco
tim, from Liverpool on the 27th ult., with
four days' Inter European advices, passed
Further Point, Sunday, on her way to Quebec.
Her advices arc interesting. Nothing definite
had transpired with reference to the expected
Pence Conference, nor was it yet known with
certainly whether Sardinia would take part in
i\ but it was expected that the representatives
of the three Powers would meet at the end of
July. It was reported that England had giv
en assurances of her adhesion to the Congress,
on condition that a general disarmament of all
the Powers should immediately take place, and
it was believed that this important step would
jbe taken. Meantime the French fleet had
: sailed from Lussino, and the army was report
; od as having commenced its homeward move
ment. The London Times ' Paris correspon
dent reports that Count Walewski had drawn
up a plan for the Italian Confederation, by
which it was to consist of seven States, under
the nominal Presidency of the Pope, but real
ly under the Government of the King of Sar
dinia and Naples alternately. Some other de
tails of the plan arc given. The relations of
France and England were occupying attention
on both sides of the channel. An arlicle had
appeared in the Paris Moniteur comparing the
armaments of the two nations, and disproving
the assertion that the causes of the English
national burdens were to be found in the ne
cessity for increasing the national defences to
keep pace with the warlike pieparations of
France. There seems to be every disposition
on the part of France to assure the English
Government and people that the Emperor con
siders the Anglo-French Alliance now as ever
necessary to the peace of Europe. The night
mare of French invasion, however, had again
seized upon the British Parliament, this time
through the long range of the rifled cannon
with which the Emperor is alleged to be arm
ing his Navy. In the LivL'rpool Cotton market
increased firmness is noted, with a slight ad
vance in some qualities. Breadstuff* and Pro
visions continued dull.
DEATH OK HON. HORACE MANN. —A tele
gram from Cincinnati announces the death of
the Hon. Horace Mann, President of Antioch
College. He died at Yellow Springs Tuesday
morning at 4 o'clock. Mr. Mann has occupi
ed a very prominent position before the pub
lie, as a writer and a lecturer on education,
and as a politician. He was born in Frank
lin, Mass. on the 4th of May, 1796, and was
consequently in his sixty-fourth year. He was
educated at Brown University, and practiced
law with great success in his native State un
til he accepted the post of Secretary of the
Board of Education for Massachusetts, in
which position he devoted himself with singu
lar zeal to his duties. In 1839 lie was elected
to the Senate in Massachusetts from Boston,
and on the death of John Quiiicy Adams he
was elected as his successor in Congress in
1848. In 1853 he accepted the post of Pres
ident of Antioch College. Mr. Mann's per
manent place in the annals of American biog
raphy will be high among those who have de
voted themselves to the task, of leaving the
world be tter than they found. He had all the
faults of a vigorous, passionate, emphatic char
acter, and with those faults its virtues too. It
is to him more than any single person that
the primary school organization of the United
States owes its best features ; and to him that
we are indebted most largely for the triumph
ant naturalization in America of the invalua
ble system of Normal Academies for the train
ing of teachers.
THE STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. —TIie State
Central Committee of the People's party inctat
the St Lawrence Hotel, on Thursday last, for
the purpose of organizing. Mr. Levi Kline,
the President, was in the chair, and the mem
bers from Allegheny and Carbon were chosen
as secretaries. There was but little business
done, the session having been devoted mainly
conventional debate, on abstract propositions,
which were informally presented. A Commit
tee of Finance was appointed, consisting of the
following gentlemen R. 0. Smith, Henry E.
Wallace, George W. Pomroy, Win. B. Thom
as, B. Rush Petrikeu and Levi Kline, Presi
dent. The Committee adjourned to meet again
in Philadelphia during the present month.
JFCG- It is stated that Judge DOUGLAS has
written a letter to a gentleman in Virginia, in
opposition to the re-opening of the African
slave trade. He takes the ground, that its pro
hibition, after a certain date, was one of the
compromises of the Constitution, which secur
ed the acceptance of that instrument, and
therefore should be held sacred.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
CON VENTION.- The Republican
County Committee having met on
the (ith lost., it wa* resolved to call a Republican County
Convention to lc composed of two delegates from each
Election District, to tie held in the Court House, at To
wanda. on MONDAY EVEN I NO, SEPTEMBER 5. 1*59,
for the purpose of nominating a Republican Co. Ticket.
'I hey have also appointed a Vigilance Committee in
each election District, whose duty it shall le to call pri
mary meetings of the Republican electors in each elec
tion dis'rict, for the purpose of electing delegates to said
County Convention. The Committees of Vigilance are
requested to confer together and call the primary meet

Fall Term of the Institution opens with an entire new
programme. Prof. 0. S. DEAN takes charge of the Insti
tute, assisted by his brother, Prof. W. H. DEAN, ami sup
ported by a corps of experienced and able Teachers.—
Arrangements have been made to make the school second
to none in the country, in point of the advantages it will
offer to the student. Prof. DEAN'S well known ability,
experience and energy arc a sufficient guarantee that
order and discipline will be maintained, at the same time
that such a course will be pursued as is likely most to
benefit those placed under his charge. His brother brings
with him a high reputation as a scholar and experienced
Mrs. KLLLOGG, the Preceptress, comes highly recom

has had much experience in teaching, and gives up two
Other desirable calls, to accept a place in the Institute.—
Miss AI.LEN, teacher of Music, is highly recommended
by Prof. SHERWOOD, Principal of the Syracuse Musical
Academy, and is an aoeompli.-hed Pianist, The arrange
ment tinder which Musical Instruction's now given at
the Institute, has proved very satisfactory, as it secures
to the pupil, a care and attention which was not enjoyed
when Music was connected with the Institute.
Those designing to prepare themselves as Teachers of
Common Schools will find the Normal Department of the
Institute to offer superior advantages. Under Prot. Co-
BI RNS' guidance, it could not but be of utility.
The friends of the Institute may rely upon it, that un
der the arrangements which have been made, the reputa
tion of the school in its best days will be more than sus
tained, as no pains will be spared by the Faculty and
Trustees to make the Institution worthy of the patronage
of the public.
HARD SHOWER. —At a late hour night be
fore last the " pores of heaven were opened, and the
rains allowed to flow out. At first they dropped in driz
zly sprays, but soon the skies began to heave up their
rushing thunders and throw out their vivid light, which
flashed from cloud to cloud in quick succession, then the
rain leaped forth in prodigotis masses and was caught up
by the wind and hurled vehemently to the ground. As
it dashed wildly against the covering which shielded us
Iroin the mad torrents, it made a noise more like that of
falling bricks than rain drops. The storm lasted for some
time, raging furiously all the while.
#*" The local column of the last It'avrrly Advocate
I contains the above specimen of hifalutin. We suggest to
the loeal man that for keeping the " pores " open, there
is nothing like M'Allister's Magnetic Ointment. Is he
sure that the "falling bricks" were not from his own hat?

i tuahr A terrible accident occurred on the
Northern Railroad, near Schaghticoke.oc Tues-;
day iiievht. The down train, due in Albany at j
7:25 P. M., while passing over the bridge which
spans the Tombanuock, was precipitated into
the creek below, a distance of twenty to twen
ty-five feet. The water was about six to eight
feet deep. Over thirteen persons n*e reported j
to have been killed. The accident took place
about one mile from the village of Schaghti-,
! coke. The moment the train struck the bridge
; the structure gave way. The locomotive, how
j ever, got across, and became detcched from
i the tender, which went down, and the bag
gage and two passenger cars followed. The
lirst passenger car went down on the tender,
and the second passenger car ran into and
turned it over. Most of the dead and wotind
l ed were brought to Albany, and a Corouer's
j inquest was immediately commenced, at which
it transpired, in the evidence of the engineer
1 and others, that the bridge has for some time ;
been considered an unsafe structure.
A NEW RAILROAD PROJECT. —It is proposed
to tap the Sunbury & Erie R. R. at or near
the mouth of Youngwoman's creek in Clinton
county, follow the course of that stream fo its :
| headwaters in Stewardson township, Potter
| county, strike the waters of Kettle creek near
Olean, follow the main stream to its head
waters, cross lo the south branch of Pine Creek,
which will be followed to the mouth of its west
branch, and along the course of that stream
I and its northern tributaries into Sweden town
-1 ship, where it will cross the summit and strike
the waters of Mill creek, and, following that
1 stream to Coudersport, strike the Allegheny
River, and, following that, tap the New York
& Erie R. R. at Olean. It is said that this
j route is not only feasible, but that it will be a
moderate grade and of easy construction, with
the exception of a couple of miles at and near
the summit which divides the waters of A lie
gheny and Susquehanna The entire length
of tiie road will he ab:ut 90 miles.

GOLDEN GRAVES. —No little excitement has
been produced in Panama and adjacent places
by the announcement of the discovery of num- I
bers of golden images and ornaments in the
Indian Cheriqui, Peru. Already the
sack of the graves lias begun, and fabulous !
tales are told of the amount of gold which
lias been found, one man having, it is said
' taken out 75!bs in a short time. Thousands
of graves are to be found in the neighborhood
of Cheriqui, and it is certain the Peruvians
were in the habit of burying with their dead
earthen vessels and articles of use and orna-1
ment but whether gold can be found there to
any amount is very doubtful. The tombs are
mounds of great extent, containing hundreds '
I ot bodies, and it was by the fall of a Inrue
tree, growing out of the top of one of the '
inouuds that the deposits were first discovered. ;

The Collegiate year is divided into three term* of H

i Instrumental Music will not.as heretofore, be taught ia
the Institution, but by special arrangement—a class will
j be taught in a hall adjoining the grounds of the Institute
| by the Teacher ot Vocal Music.
This arrangement lias been adopted for the pat term
! and experience has proved it to be eminently superior to
j the plan pursued in former years. Special pains will bo
j taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
: take lessons in this branch. Terms will be as heretofore:

Pupils boarding in the Hall will furnish their own tow
els. Ac., and the table silver a. their option. It is desirs
ble that they also furnish their own bed and bedding
j w hen it is convenient, but when otherwise, these wilit*
furnished at a slight charge.
It is strongly recommended that students front abroad
-hould board in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement in study are thereby secured.
.Xormal Department —Special exercises are arrangi-4
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prot.C.B COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schooh
in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tt-a
j eher s class, and direct the course to lie pursued.
He will also be present to conduct its exercises as ofltn
as practicable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
| Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
: connected with Normal training.
' Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
i tozbe present during the Fall term.
