ployment in the agricultural districts, and
food, generally, is cheap. It is asserted that
in any ordinary tunes, under such a state of
things as prevails there, money would soon
be in demand at high rates of usance, but
lite extraordinary caution of the moneyed

Paris correspondent of the Nottk American
fays, in thai gay oily, w hero fashions origi
nate, "the most fashionable bonnets are
made of terry velvet, with a scarf and trim
mings of plain velvet, anil decorated with
birds or feathers. We also see bonnets
composed of white crape, covered with
bh ck tulle and lace, and of bright colored
velvet. I'he crown is of crape; the curtain
and front of the bonnet ol velvet. Crape is
not certainly an appropriate material for
the month of January, excepting in a ball
room, and yet it is now worn, even in walk
ing, as a morning bonnet. Day dresses are
still made with a deep flounce, l eaded with
a pulling, or with several narrow flounces
Waists are generally round, with a wide
scarf sash, bordered with lace or with fringe,
or else a waistband, without ends, fastened
by a gold, or silver or steel buckle. Very
email lappets are still in vogue; they are
cut in points, and bordered with lace. Sat
in, both black and colored, is inuch used
again as a materia) for robes. Two skirts,
richly trimmed with fringe or lace, is the
usual style ol these dresses. The corsage
sometimes open, with a plastron of tulle
puffings and lace trimmings.
Horrible Murder in Philadelphia.
About 10i o'clock, on last Sunday evening,
a brutal and shocking murder was commit
ted in the Nineteenth ward in Philadelphia,
and lias caused much excitement there.
It appears that a difficulty occurred at a
tavern at lite northeast corner of Second and
Oxford street, between the proprietor of the
j place, John Alexander, and a man named
I John Sloan, but they did notenme to blows,
j Soon after litis Sloan, went out of tho tav-
I cm and stood upon tho steps conversing
with some one near, when Alexander, came
to lite door and deliberately tired both loads
of a double barreled pistol at Sloan. The
balls passed through his cap and into the
left side of his head, shattering and crush
ing his skull, and strewing his brains upon
the pavement.
The accused was at once arrested, hut re
sisted the officers violently, but is now
lodged in the cells of the Seventeenth Ward
Station House, awaiting the result of the
Coroner's Jury.
Sloan, the deceased, was about 22 years
of age. His remains were conveyed to the
Seventeenth Ward Station House. His fath
er came to the Station House soon after the
body was brought there, when a most ag
onizing scene took place, 'l he Coroner was
to investigate the case on Tuesday, and we
have no doubt but it resulted in the convic
tion of Alexander.
Loltl Attempt nl Bobbery.
On Wednesday night last, says the Dan
ville Intelligencer injlween lite hours of 8 and
9 o'clock, while our Sheriff, Mr. Edward!
Voting, was crossing the Washington hills, j
on his way to Danville, his horse became
unmanageable, having become friglite.icil
at sotne object, near the road--do. While lite
Sheriff was endeavoring to pacify the ani
mal, a man sprang GI., from behind a tree,
and seized '.he njins by the horse's head.—
Ihe Sriil very coolly inquired his busi
ness, when the would-be-robber demanded
liis money, stilling that lie was poor and
stood ill need of it. The Sheriff very indif
ferently stated that if that was his object, lie
would be gl. d to accommodate him, and
proceeded forthwith to put his supposed to j
be benevolent designs into execution. But i
instead of money, he presented a "Six- !
Shooter," which he had wisely loaded and I
secreted, and aiming it at the rascal's head,
pulled the trigger, but it unfortunately miss
ed fire, n heu the scamp, supposing it to be j
harmless, proceeded to cut the reins, and i
had nearly succeeded in his efforts, when '
the Sheriff fired a second time, discharging I
the contents, bin with what effect he is un- 1
able to tell, as the villi,'in took to his heels, j
and scampered off through lite woods.
The reins were nearly severed in two or
three places but the Sheriff wis ignorant of
the fact until he arrived at homo, when
on examination he first made the discovery.
The rascal unduubtly intended, by thus
succeeding in rendering the animal power
less in the hands of the Sheriff, to accom
plish his designs. The person is supposed
to tie an Irishman, by hi.-language, although
the Sherill lured to recognize him. This is
itiO MMlontl olitiuupt ol ilia Lin. l ill unr t.oitcU i

perintendent. Mr. I'i'T.NAM, was attacked in
a similar manner a short time since. We
trust prompt measures will betaken to fer
ret out the rascals, and have justice meted
utit to ilium.
WE learn that i'rof. Curtis of Levvisburg,
received a telegraphic dispatch stating that
his lather, Rev. Mr. Curtis, ol South Caroli
na. bad been lost by the burning ol a steam
er, and subsequent reports confirm it. Mr
[Curtis was oil his w try to visit his son at

I him that a sun's child of Ids had died, ami

1 There were 80 persons on board, and all
! lite pasengers saved except Mr. Curtis. He
[ was upwards of eighty years old, and the
lire occurring after night, when all had re
tired, it is supposed that lie did not awaken
until the flames were all around him cutting
off ail hope of escape. Mr. Curtis was ex
pected to preach for his son last Sunday in
the B.qiti-t Church in this place, hut these

dication of that progress in puWic sentiment
which the people will never permit to go
backward in its movements, and of that sta

which surround us.

specimen of tiio o; eration of divorce laws in
Indiana, demonstrated in the person of one
not quite a "model wife, - ' and att outraged
In the discussion on amendments to the
divorce law in the Senate, a case was dis
covered in which a gentleman in Leaven
worth, Kansas, had furnished his wife wi h
money to visit her friends in the east, and
to travel for the benefit ot her health. On
arriving at Indianapolis, she concluded to
take advantage ol the Indiana divorce law.
and procure a nullification of her marriage.
She then went to Kokomo, where she made
an afiidavit that she was a bene fi.'e resident
ol the State of Indiana, and filed a com
plaint in the Howard circuit court against
her husband for a divorce, a notice of which
was publi.-hed iorthe benefit of iter husband
who was a non-resident of the Stato. la the
meantime, Iter husband thought she was in
dm cast, us lie received letters trom her
postmarked first at Cleveland and alter
wards at lioston.
While still under the impression that she
was at Boston, the husband received a copv
of the Howard Tribune, containing notice of
the filing ol the complaint against him. He
immediately left Leavenworth and arrived
at Indianapolis, reaching the city on Satur
day. the 20th ol November. Tho Howard
circuit commenced its session on the follow
ing Monday, the 22d, and to reach Kokomo
in time to answer tho complaint against
him, he had to hire a locomotive oa the
Peru and Indianapolis railroad, to take him
to Kokomo, in order to be in court at the
proper iiour.
The reason stated for the defence made
in the case was that the wife had been in
duced to ask for a divorce under improper
influences. Site had been, for some time,
half crazed by spiritualism, and the husband
thought if tie could place her beyond those
influences, she would abandon the suit.—
The case is still pending.

ItcmarktiMc Funeral iu OineiiinaH.
Josephine Ellison, the young girl of aban
doned character, who was burned to death
at a house ot ill-fame in Cincinnati, was
not even allowed to rest in her grave. Some
medical students had her "resurrected,' but
tho police recovered the body, winch was
handed over to the undertakers for the pur
pose of re-burial—The frail sisters of the
poor unfortunate contributed liberally to
purchase an .expensive coffin, and to pay
the funeral charges. They applied to sov
oral clergymen to allow the funeral to take
place in one of their churches, but all refus
ed, until finally tho Rev. Mr. Plunders, (for
merly of Baltimore,) of the First Universal
is! Church, was applied to. He readily con
sented, and preached an impressive dis
course to a largo assemblage in the church,
whither the body had been conveyed. Near
ly one hundred courtezans were present,
and those who resided in tho house where
the girl met her death where dressed iu deep
mourning, and seemed to appreciate the
solemnity of the occasion. The Cincinnati
Times says:
At the ciose of the address, Rev. Mr. Flan
ders addressed the Throne of grace, appeal
ing especially in behalf of the parents of Jo
sephiue Ellison, 'lhat closed the services.
The undertaker then lifted the lid of the
coffin and invited alt who wished to view
the corpse. There was quite a rush toward
j it. The courtezans, however, remained in
, their seats until the rest of the congregation
| were gratified. They then approached the
, corpse. All wept over it, some ot them
bitterly. It was a strange scene that. To
behold these abandoned women, outcasts
| train society, victims of vice, weeping anil
j sobbing over the remains of one of their
! kind, upon the altar ol a church, was a sight
. never belore witness in tins city. It was
j touching, too and draw tears from the eyes
of many of the spectators.
. A lady writes to the Commercial:
"1 knew the young girl, Josephine Ellison.
I warned her to 'tlee from destruction
and go home.' She was a ripe scholar and
of good patronage. Thousands are going
this day the same road, and tiie moral por
tion of the comu.iily stand by and permit

she came to this city her object was to leach

in whom she trusted betrayed her."
JUVENILE PRECOCITY.—A little child of this
city was holding a very animated conversa
tion with one of about its own years, a few
days since. A portion of it was overhead,
and it appeared to be a dispute as to what
their "mothers could do." After naming
over various meritorious act of which their
tnateruals were capable, the one in ques
tion put an end to the dispute by exclaim
ing : "Well, there's one thing my mother
