In the meantime, the'danger of Agrippina
was noised abroad,' but ’only as an accident ;
and the people, as they heard of it* hurried to
the shore.- Some - got Upon the mole, others
jnto the nearest boatssomei.wadod into the
s«* .M faros they could -, and . some’ stretched
out'their hands; the whole, coast- was, filled
with the ories, the prayera, the shouts, of peoi
pie asking various questions or giving’ uncer
tain answers.:'i A'■’ great: multitude crowded
thither with iights , and, when it was generally
known that Agrippina was safe, they wore, pre
paring to give her their congratulations, when
they were dispersed by the threats of a body
Of .armed, men; ■ ■ .. ir„<
Anicetus:posted men about Agrippina’s villa,
and,: bursting open the. door, he seized the
•slaves, whom he met before he . reached the
door of the chamber.' A few slaves were stand
ing there- the reat had been frightened away
,by the soldiers breaking in. In the chamber
there was;a'feeme : light and : a single female'
slave; Agrippina was growing more and more
uneasy that no messenger Came from her son;
that even Agerinus did not return. The free
of the shore' was now 'changed; there were’
solitude and sudden noises, and the indications
of - some extreme calamity. Ai her slave was.
going away; Agrippina cried out,“Do you too
leave me I” and seeing Xnicetus; accompanied
by Herculeus, a. eaptaifi of a trireme, , and
OloriataSj a centurion in the floet, she said, “if
.he hadepmo her, he must tell Hero that
she was -recovered; if he had come to commit,
a crime, she would not believe that her son was
privy to, it; be would'not command the mur
der of his mother:" The assasslns surroundcd
the bed,-and the commander of the trireme
waa tho first to strike,her on the head with a
club. As the centurion was drawing Ms sword
to kill her, she presented her womb, and said
•‘Strike hereand she was despatched with
many wounds. So far nil agree. As to Hero
coming to See. the body of bis mother, and
praising 1 the'beauty of her person, there are
some authorities that hare so Stated, and there
are some that deny it. She was burnt the same
night, on a banqueting couch, and with the
'Meanest ceremonial $ nor, OO long qs Hero was
in possession of power, was the earth piled'up,
or coyered over,’
.By the ' bare "of;her domestics a' slight
tumulus was afterwards. raised on the, place,
near the road to Misenum and the villa of the
Dictator Qsesar, which, stands on -the highest
spot of ground, and ’ commands a prospect of
the bay: below. .When the funeral pile was
lighted, a freodman of Agrippina, named
Mnester, stabbed' 1 himself; 'it is doubtftil
whether through affection, to.his.mistress, or.
through fear of being put to death. Many
years before’Agrippina had believed that this
would;be her Olid,; aud i she braved it. For,
whenslie wiscommlting the Chatclteans about
Nero, they 1 told hey that \Nero would be em
peror, and would kjll his mother: she replied,

interesting tp see Father Taylor inh|s polpit
vrfth the sons of the Son around Him. ’Hedoes
not attempt a regularly constructed discourse,
or indulge in doctrinal points or theological
abstractions. He knows'better 'than that:and
understands better the measure of,hi? I ,hearers.
But" he adopts-a CoHoquial style, lie talks
with them in familiar language! A sailor fcim
selfi he knows rthat’Bailors want,'and hovv to
touch their feelings. We have said that Fa
ther Taylor’s eloquence is rough, by;which wo
mean unpolished. - But there are occasions in
which he Hses'to sublimity. He identifies
him seif with his people,Hbeir sorrows and suf
ferings,' their joys apd pleasures. Hence, as
Mrs. Gilman some years ago noticed, when a
hole, asking prayers fora widow-’whose ;hus
batid had, been drowned' the preceding Week
had,been, read by hini,'he descended'from the
pulpit, called the woman to the altar, and lay

The Baltimore American tints alludes to the
subject of wlne-growlng in» Missouri, which is
fhst getting to be a'matter of oonsiderahlo im
portance in’tliat State. ; .
' WXwftie''company hasireen recently formed
in Missouri- for the manufacture of wine from
the grape vineyards of the region, and the pro
duct of this manufacture appears in the market
this year for the,(first'.time;' The enterprise
promlses.completa success, as good profits are
fcaUzed, and experienced connoisseurs do not
hesitate to declare the’American wine superior
to many of the choice foreign brands. Missouri
seems peculiarly well adapted to grape' culture';
for while hlasting ond.mildew are said to have
befelien the grape crop in Ohio, tho vineyards
in Missouri are free from blight, and now
promise a' rich'harvesf. The zealous cultiva
tors expect to’displaoe all foreign brands, among
discriminating judges of, the artiole. The St.
Louis Republican describes at much length the
works Of the' Missouri Wino Company, the
process of manufacture, &c. Tho main build
ing is' very wide and one hundred and fifty feet
in depth, having three cellars beneath it, hewn
out of solid rack,•the’lowcstof which is thirty
three feet below the siirftce of tho earth, for
the purpose of Securing a low temperature.
The Catawba grape is’ almost the only one .cul
tlvated for wiue, though good success has been
had in making sparkling wine from the wild
grape,whiphbrihgss9pef dozen. Thechoicer
varieties of Catawba rate at $l2 to $lB per
dozen. Tho Republican Says:
«‘ Iff tho year 18S0. the company manufac
tured GO,OOO bottles, or 18,000 gallons, of the
three forms of Cgtawba. The present year
the' amount will not exceed 80,000 bottles.
The fhllure of tho' crops last fall advanced the
price of the manufactured article twenty-five
per" cent,, besides limiting the quantity, so
that the Missouri Wine Company contracted
their operations.
, “‘ Wo understand (hat the business of wine
growing is profitable. An acre of Vines' pro
perly attended will yield 400 gallons of wine,
which, at $1 per gallon, the üßual rate, will
yield $4OO or $350 nett, as it costs not more
than $5O per acre to' cultivate the grape and
press out the wine. The first cost of procuring
the vines and preparing the ground, we did
not learn. But the. cost-subsequently is not
above the figures stated—sso per acre.’ ’’
Wine-Making in America.
We see it stated that an order has been sent
from Washington to Southern Hungary for
some cuttings of'the vine of the genuine To
kay grape, with a view to introduce the culti
vation of that famous grape as an experiment
in this country, in the . hope that wo too may
be able 'to' produce the Tokay wine. Wo pre
dict that the trial will prove a failure. It will,
unless this grape behaves very differently in
our soil and,climate from other imported varie
ties, which have uniformly failed, so far as we
are inibrmed, in every case where outdoor or
vineyard cultivation has been attempted. Wo
hope, however, tho experiment will bo tried.
In Europe, where there were no native grapes,
imported kinds were introduced and nourished;
here, we have several varieties of native grapSs,
and the foreign sorts dwindle and die out after
a few years,-as often as their cultivation is at
An enormous' cask-passed up State street
yesterday, on its way to the wine-cellar of
Messrs. K. Page & Co., under ' the reservoir
in Derne street. . Its capacity is 2,400 gallons,
probably the largest cask in this country ex
cept one or two in the cellars of Nicholas
Longworth, in. Cincinnati. Messrs. Page &
Co. have recently leased several arches under
the reservoir, .and fitted them up for tho pur
poso of making their wines from native fruit.
. This makes the finest cellar in the country.—
One of the arches, in which there are three
Btorics, is 180 feet by 40.. The wine which
this firm makes received a medal at the last
Mechanics’ Fair, and is the purest wine that
can bo possibly made. Dr. Hayes has an
alyzed It, and found that itcontains but 12 or 14
per cent, of alcoholic spirits.— Boston Post.
In Connecticut tho making of wino from na
tive grapes is getting to be a considerable busi
ness, and is found to be profitable—especially
When'the wine iswell made.. The abhndant
growth of native grapes in Tolland, Glaston
bury, Stafford, and. other towns, is being tamed
to some account, and we hope more attention
will hs pajd to (he business. Wine from these
grapes sells readily, at'prices varying from
$1 25 to $2 60 per gallon,. according to age.
One gentleman in Stafford, has for many yosrs
filled his cellar with wine ,of his own making,
and he sells alt he can make. , Gen. Case, of
.Canton, also makes a good article. Specimens
of wino from the white native grape of this
vicinity wo hare found to jbe excellent.
In Portland, opposite Middletown, there are
sections vvliare tile'.'wild'fox grape grows in
such.abundance, that people living in that vi.
cjnity mlght avail tkomsolvea of it to make
wine to advantage. At. our last State Fair! In
’Hartford,; there were one of two specimens' of
improved portable wine presses, and quito a
variety of different kinds of wine made in this
State. Several persons in this city and neigh
borhood are now in the habit of making their
own .wine, and they fancy It to be equal to any
imparted article—-certainly better than the
stuff sold under thq name of wine, in most
places,— Hartford Pimu.
and Wine CuitueU in the TThmeo,States.—
The Commissioner of Patents has set apart a
Sortion of the fonds last appropriated by
ongreaa for, agricultural purposes, for obtain
ing cuttings Of all the native wild grape vines
of the United Statos, to be placed in the hands
of practical cultivators, with a view of testing
their adaptation to tho soil and climate of the
other sections of the Union, and determining
their value for table use, and for making wine.
Major H. C. Williams, of Fairfax county, Va.,
has been chosen to select the cuttings of the
vines of Arkansas and Texas; slid tho neigh
boring Territories, and obtain certain Informa
tion connected with their growth and locality,
whichoro to bo‘ employed in carrying out said
experiment., Considering the extent of, terri.
tory over which the' vino culture may be ad
vantageously diffused in this -country, it is
surprising that this Important measure has
never been attempted; by our Government
WJio has not noticed the difference between
the first and Second fiddler of an' orchestra 1
One is all life,' spirit,' energy. ’ Now waving
the bow in the air, ho silently guides the har
mony;—now rapidly tapping on the rest-board,
he buYries its*movement) or, again, bringing
tho violin to his shoulder, he takes the lead
ing melody; and high, above tho crash of
sound, the wild cOncord'of a hundred instru
ments, , you, hoar shrieking along the shrill
notes of the first fiddle. He is an enthusiast j
he'stamps his foot, wags his head, beats timo
,with>mad;energy, enters;heart and soul into
the -music— and all because ho is the leader,
and plays the first fiddle.
, Seated, by his.side, but.npon a lower chair
with a lower music-rest before him, la a patient
man, who saws meekly on the cat-gut. He
never glances Wildly heavenward like the lead
er,never allows his facile hand to run off in
roulades of melody, never wags his head nor
stamps his foot, but steadily'and honestly ho
pours an undercurrent of harmony into the mus
ic,which no one hears or cares for,no one credits
to him, without which the orchestra would bo
lame indeed. With iiis eye fixed on the notes,
he draws the bow with diligence and not with
enthusiasm, he sees before, him not tho inspi
ration of a master, but with eSch quaver, he
earns so much bread-and-butter for his family.
Perhaps he sometimes ciphers up what fraction
of a mill a singlo noth may bring him.’
And vet it is possible that this same man,
now so tame and spir|tless, so yery like an au
tomaton in his place, may have all the genius
and fire of the leader—but alas, he plays se
cond fiddle. '
All this bit of moralising passed through
onr mind, and partly through onr lips, the’
other night, while listening to an orchestra en
gaged in the performance of a Strauss quad
rille. But human nature acts on principles
which do not vary,with.each particular, occu
pation, and no man can folly develop his pow.

for notoriety, for reputation of talent,'skill,
genius, wealth. The soul whose light is hid
beneath a bushel ,Kta powers cramped by Infe
rior position,; living in a constant conscious
ness of second-rate iihportanccy is but half it
self. It loses the'flre'of sympathy with look
ers-on, feels that. it is irresponsible for the
■grand result | and settling to the axiom “act
well your part," loses all hope of acting In the
future a better and nobler part. But with this
feeling of inferiority comes the consolation of
a sense of justice j. all cannot’ be first fiddles,
there Is no equality in this varying world H a workTof stupid sameness If It wore

|FrWth*hew YorfcTftfclet. V ' v 1 /
At Mr. Clancy’s, at Charievllle, Mr. O’Con
nell talked away, lor the amusement of the
party who had assembled to meet him. •< I
was once,’? - said he, « counsel for .a cow
stealer, who was clearly convicted; the sen.
tenoe was transportation for fourteon years.
At the pud of that time hp returned, and hap
pening to meet me, he began to talk about the
trial. I asked him how he always managed to
steal tho fat cows, to which he gravely an
swered; ‘Why, then, I’ll tell your honor the
whole secret of that, sir. WAentoer your honor
goer to steal a cow, always go on tho worst
night you can, for if the weather Is very bad
the chances are that nobody will be up to see
your honor. The way you’ll always know the
fat cattle in tho dark is by this,token—that the
fat cows always stand out In the more exposed
places; but the 4ean ones always go into the
ditch for shelter.’ So, (continued O’Oonneli )
I got that lesson in cow-stealing, gratis, from
my wo - thy client.”
We spoke of the recent political meetings'-'
and, a certain orator, I observed’
that when a speaker averred with much ear
nestness, that his speech was unpremeditated
I never , felt Inclined to believo him, Mr’
O’Connell laughed. “I remember,” said he',
“a young barrister named B once came
to. consult me on a; case in which he was re
tained, and begged my permission to read for
me the draft of a speech ho intended to de
liver at the trial, which was to come off in
about a fortnight. I assented; wherpupon he
began to read, ‘Gentlemen of the Jury, I pledge
you my honor as a gentleman that l did not
know'until this moment 1 should have to address
you in this case.’ ‘Oh I ,that’s enough,’ cried
I; ‘ consult Bomebody else—that specimen is
quite enough for me I”’
On our rpad to Charleville to Limerick, we
passed through the barony of Connelloe
which the Liberator told me had formerly be
longed to bis ancestors. As we came in view
of Chief Baron o‘Grady’s seat, Mr. O’Con
nell conversed about the proprietor. In 1813,
some person having remarked to O’Grady that
Lord Castlereagh, by his ministerial manage
ment, “had made a great character for him
self,”—“has he ?” said O’Grady; “faith if he
has, he’s just the hoy to Upend it like a gentle
man I”
After O’Grady had retired from the Bench,
some person placed a large'' stuffed owl on the
sofa beside him. The bird was of enormous’
size, and had been as a great curiosity
from the tropics'. .O’Grady looked at‘ the owl
for a moment, and then said, with a gesture
of peevish impatience, “Take away that owl!
take away that owl I If you don’t I shall fancy
lam seated again on tho Exchequer Bench
beside Baron Foster.” Those who have soen
Baron Foster on the Bench can best appre
ciate the felicitous resemblance traced by his
venerable brother judge between his lordship
and an old stuffed owl.
■ Among the Liberator's professional reminis
cences was the following unique instance of a
client’s gratitude. He had obtained an ac
quittal; and the fellow, in tho ecstacy of his
joy, exclaimed, “Ogh, Counsellor! I’ve no way
here to show your honor my gratitude! but I
wisht I saw you knocked down .in mv own
parish, and maybe I wouldn’t bring a faction to
the rescue I”
A tattered looking stroller recognized O’Con
nell at some place where we stoppod for a few
minutes, and asked him for money, pleading a
personal acquaintance in aid of hia claim. “ I
don’t know you at all, my,” Said
O’Connell,«l never saw you before.” “ That’s
not what your honor’s son would say to me, I ',
returned the applicant, “ for he got me a good
placo in Glasnevin Cemetery, only I hadn’t the
luck to keep, it.” « Then, indeed, you were
strangely unlucky,” rejoined O’Connell, « for
those who have places in cemeteries generally
keep them-”
tYo slept at Maryborough, in the Queen’s
County. Ere we retired to bed, something led
to the subject ol trial by jury. lasked him if
it was not absurd to require unanimity in a
jury ?—ifthoplan of tho old Scotch criminal
juries—namely, that of deciding by the major
ity—was not the more rational mode ?
“ In theory it is,” he answered; « but there
are great practical advantages in the plan that
requires unanimity. To be snre there -is
this disadvantage—that one obstinate fellow
may knock up a verdict in spite of eleven
clear-headed jurors— but that does not happen
once in a hundred cases. And the' necessity
for a unanimous verdict may be a vast protec.
tion for a person unjustly charged with an of
“ I remember a case in which eleven jurors
found a man guilty of murder, while the twelfth
—a gawky fellow, who had, never before been
on a jury—said he thought the deceased died
by a fell from his horse. The dissident juror
persisted; the case was accordingly held over
till the next assizes, and in the meantime evi
dence came out that most clearly confirmed
tho surmise of the gawky juror. Here, then,
if the majority,ot jurors hod been aide to re
turn a verdict, an innocent man hod suffered
death.” . • A . . ,
O’Connell hod strong convictions against the
law of punishment by death. His own pro
fessional experience fornished him with a mul
titude of reasons for its abolition. He told mo
an instanco whero'an innocent life was ail but
lost; the prosecutrix (a woman whose house
had been attacked) having erroneously sworh
to the identity of a prisoner who was totally
guiltless of the Offence. The Man Was found
guilty and sentenced to death on her evidence.
He bore a considerable personal resemblance
to the real criminal. The latter having been
arrested and confronted with tho prosecutrix,
s lie feinted with horror at her mistake, which
hod been so nearly fetal in. its consequences.
By tho prompt interference of Judge, .Burton
(thon at tho bar) and O’Conne.', tho govern
ment were induced to discharge the unoffend
ing individual, who had tho narrowest possible
escape of a rope.
But a far worse caso than this was recorded
by O’Oonneil. I give the narrative in his own
words, extracted from a speech he delivered
at a meeting held in London;—“l myself,”
said ho, “defended three brothers of the’namo
of Cremin. They were indicted for murder.
Tho evidence was most unsatisfactory. Tho
judge had a loaning in favor of the crown pro
secution, and ho almost compelled tho jury to
convict them. I sat at my window as they
passed by after sentence of death bad been
pronounced; there was a large military guard
taking them back to goal, positively forbidden
to allow any communication with the three un
fortunate youths. But their mother was there;
and she, armed in the strength of her affec
tion, broke through tho guard. I saw her clasp
her eldest son, who was but twenty-two years
of ago; I saw her hang on the second, who
was not twenty; I saw her feint when she
clung to the youngest hoy, who was but eigh
teen—and I ask, what recompense ‘could ho
rnado for such agony? They were executed,
and they were innocent!” TV’, j; D.

Novel in all its elements, and extraordinary
in Us whole career, Mormonlsm has sCemod to
be a problem beyond thp sagacity of the great
est and purest of our statesmen. Ingeniously
surrounded by those who lead in its
with metaphysical assertions of the. abstract
right of self-government, every remedial sug
gestion was abandoned in detail, until the pres
ent Administration came into pother. The
remedy which all men seem to agree upon is i
that which the Federal Exeoutlvewlttaonbtless!
put into operation. The poisoned fVuit has ri
pened, and Is about to tall j and at this moment
an evil of the most gigantic proportions prom
ises to subdue before the resolute purpose oftho
President, and the determined co-operation
which will attend the execution of thatpuipo'so.
The'same energy which rebuked the Know
Nothingism excesses in Washington,—the
saiho statesmanship which has been applied to
Kansas)—will; wo predict, provo to be equally
successful in Utah, If or wUI the principal of
popular sovereignty be violated in-order to
bring abont a consummation so devoutly to be
wished. Troops will be sent there, nbt to wage
war againßt the deluded hordes in that tar-off
Territory, bntto sustain the laws, and encour
age those who, sick and disgusted with: the
horrid bestialities which there prevail, reduiro
the strong,-sheltering arm of. the government,
to protect them. And if it should happen that
in carrying out this design, the bold; bad f mon
who have reigned so long over their abject
slaves should be summarily and effectually pun
ished, we ore free to say that public opinion'
will approve, and public gratitude' acknowl
edge, the patriotic energy of the Administration
in performing its whole duty. -We confess our
surprise when we see tho governmept waiting
for the man to complete this great and indis
pensable work.' It is a field for tho noblest
ambition. It is a field for tbe statesman and
theCbristian. Some such man shonft be imme
diately instrumental In giving success to tbe
policy o t the Administration, and Would thus
win a crown richer than that «the Bourbon
