BY D. A. BIIBEILBR. VOLUME XXVII. HOOPS. BY A. COOPER. Hoops on barrels, kegs and pails, Hoops on boxes, tubs and bales, Are'artieles But hoops as they putout woman's dress, Making the woman seem much less, Are things most indefensible. Hoops when their sturdy . clasp confines, In brown old casks tho richest wines, Are objects of admiration— But hoops , as part of woman's baggage, Aro like the whoops of a painted savage, , vile abomination. • Hoops make useful, pretty toys, For active little girls and boys, But hoops on 'woman gentle Are things to sneer at and to scoff, And like the vrhooP of a whooping-cough, Neither useful nor ornamental. For while dear woman bones her skirts, And !yid' a skeleton flaunts and flirts, She had so much to carry, Man finds it hard with her to talk, And harder still to sit or walk, But hardest of all to marry. For when a smitten wretch has seen, Among the lost in olinoline, The one his heart holds dearer, Oh what a chill to ardent passion To feel that through this hollow fa:hion He never can bOnearer I That instead of timidly drawing near, And pouring into the thrining ear, The flood or his soul's devotion, He Inuit s tand and bellow in thunder tone; Aeross a half acre of skirts and bones, As if lulling a ship on the ocean I And if by chance the maid of his choke, Shall faintly hear her lover's 'voice, And smile her condescension— Why he captures 14 mass or hoops and rings, Skeletons, bones, and other things, Tuo horrible to mention. Thus lovely woman hoops to folly,' And drives poor man - to melancholy, By her groat frigid zones ; Thowlet her hear a warning voice Between her hoops and hopes uakol ch oico, And give do dogs her hones. TOUCHING AArD BEAUTIFUL— The following from the pen and heartof Mr: Chester, of the Courier, is beautiful : "ONLY ONE 'flies() aro the •werdsof a mother who has lately followed to the grave a little form that was taro precious than herself; a. form that Death envied and so changed into unable. We know how grovious a thing it is to hide our jewels in . the dust.

But if we would remember that they aro merely loaned to us, how much easier would it be to part with them.

Think of that neces sity in a free country! But an error ap peatlngin it, it was scut back for correo •tion, and owing to tho delay which fel. lowed, it , was not prepared in time for pub lication. In Virginia many Fromop votes were cast,. al though but• few are as yet re ported: ilnieutuoky, Missouri, and Ton new!, the germ of a Republican party urns manifested. - 1119,4rentic e sage President ,Pierce, in a letter to the.

He will have a chance to go' to 'raising potatoes after the fourth of March, :end, even 'though he may be as min. .arable a farmer as be is a President, we .don't beliive he will ever be able to raise as mill a potatoe as himself. DANIEL 177gBrZ y• Rig , COR#ESPON- Little, Brown & 00., of Boston, are a bout to publish Daniel Webster's corre spondence. A few of the letters have been furnished to tho press in advance of the book. Those possess peculiar interest. In 1824 Mr. Webster vial* Thomas Jefferson at his home In Virginia. He wrote at the flirt° a description of the ox- President, and kept notes of his ionver. sation, of which we give the following specimens : MOMS JEFFERSON DESCRIBED BY WEB 'Mr. Jefferson jimmy between eighty-one and eighty-two, aboVe six feat high, of an ample, long frame, rather thin and spare. His head, whiob is not !mealier in its shape, is set rather for ward on his shoulders, and his nook being Ibug, there is, when he is walking or conversing, au habitual pro trusion of it. It is still well covered with hair, which, having been once red, and now turning grey, is of an indistinct sandy color. ,His eyes are small, very light, and now neither brilliant nor striking. His chin is rather long, but not pointed. His nose is small, regular in its outline, and the nos trils a little elevated. His mouth is well formed, and still filled with teeth; it is strongly compressed, bearing the entree- Moo of contentment and benevolence. His complexion, formerly light and freckled, now hears the marks of age and cutaneous affection. His limbs arc uncommonly long: hit hands 'and feet very large, and his wrists of an extraordinary size. His walk is not precise animilitary, but easy and swinging. He stoops a little, not so much from age as from natural formation. When sitting he appears short, partly from a rather lounging habit of sitting and partly from the disproportionate length of 1 1 his limbs. His dress, when in the house, is -a grey surtout coat, kerseyinere stuff waistcoat : with an under ono faced with some rial of a dingy red. Vie pantaloons aro very long and loose, an a of the seine color of his coat. and [ stockings are woolen, ei ther white or grey; and his shoes of the kind that bear His name. His whole dress is very much neglected, but not slovenly. He wears a common round hat. His dress wheu on horseback, ilia grey straight bod ied coat, and a spencer of the same mate rial, both fastened with large pearl but tons. When we first saw him, ho was ri ding and, in addition to the above article of apparel, wore round his throat a knit white woolen tippet, in the place of a cra vat, and black velvet gaiters under his paw mimic's. His general appearance indicates au extrabrdinary,llegree of health, vivacity and spirit. His sight is still good, for he needs glasses only' in the evening. His hearing i.l generally good, but a number of voices in animated conversation confuse it. Mr. Jefferson rises in the morning as soon as he can see the bands of his clock, which is directly opposite his bed, and ex amines his thermometer immediately, as he keeps a regular meteorological diary. He employs himself chiefly in writing till breakfast, ,which Is at nine. From that time till dinner he is in his library, except ing that iu fair weather ho rides on horse back from seven to fourteen miles. Dines at four, returns to the drawing room at six, when coffee is brought in, and passes tho evening till uiuo in conversation.— His habit of retiring at that hour is so strong that it has become essential to his health and comfort. ,His diet is simple, but he seems restrained only by his taste. His breakfast is tea and coffee, bread al ways fresh from the oven, of which he does not seam afraid, with sometimes a slight accompaniment of cold moat.' He enjoys his dinner well, taking with his weal of large proportion of vegetables. He has a strong preference for the wines of the Continent, of which he lila many sorts of excellent quality, having been more than commonly successful in his modb of importing and preserving them.,- Among others we found the following, which aro very rare in this country, and apparently not at all injured by, transportation : Edam', Muscat, Samian and Banchetto de ,Limoux. Dinner is served in half Vir ginian, half French style, in good taste and abundance. No wine is put on the ta ble till the cloth is iomoved. In conversation, Mr. Jefferson is easy and natural, and apparently not ambitious; it is not loud, as challenging general at tention, but usually addressed to the per son next to him. The topics, when not se looted to suit the o' iFirrieleffiand feeling of his auditors, are those subjects with which ' his mind seems , particularly occupied ;"and these, at present, may bo said to be science and letters, and especially the University of Virginia, which lemming into existence, almost entirely from his exertions, and will rise, it is to lie hoped, to usefulness and credit under his continued care.— When we were with him, his favored sub jects were Greek and Anglo-Saxon, his torical recollections of the dumb and events of the Revolution, and of hit residence in Franco from 1783—'4 to 1789. BM. LJEFFEILSON'S ACCOUNT Or PATRICK RENIT,Y. Patriok Henry was originally a bar keeper. He married very 'young ) ,arid go ing into same business, on his own no 'Count; was a bankrupt before the year was out. When I was about the age of 15, I left the school here to go to the college of Willatosburg. I stopped a few days .st a friend's in the county of Louisa. There 'I first saw and became accquaieted with Patrick Henry. Having spent the Christ mas holidays there, I proceeded to Will amsburg. Some question arose about my admission, as my preparatory studies bad been pursued at the school connected with., that institution. This delayed tay admis- ' 'don about a fortnight, at 'which time Hon GETTYSBURG, PA., FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 12, 1856. ry appeared in Willantaburg, and applied for a license to practice law, having com menced the study of it at or subsequently to the time of my meeting him in Louisa. There wore tour examiners—Wythe, Pen dletoe, Peyton Iti4olph and John Ran dolph. Wythe and Pendleton at once re jected his application. The two Randolphs, by his importunity, wore prevmled upon to sign the license ; and having obtained their signatures, he applied again to Pen dleton, and after much entreaty and many promises of future study, succeeded in ob taining his. Ho then turned out for a• practicing lawyer. The first case which brought him into notice was a couteOted election, in which he appeared as counsel before a committee of the Houk' of Bur gesses. His second wag the Parsons' cause, already well known. - These and similar' efforts soon obtained for him so much reputation that he was elected a member of the Legislature. Ho was as well suited to the times as any man ever was. and it is not now easy to say what wo should have done without Patrick Hen ry. He was far before all in maintaining the spirit of the Revolution. His influ ence was most extensive with the mem berm from the upper counties, and his boldness and their votes overawed and con trolled the more cool or the more timid aristocratio gentlemen of the lower part of the State. His eloquence was peculiar„if, indeed it should be called eloquence • for it was imprassive and sublime beyond what can be imagined. Although it was diffeculo when he had spoken to tell what, ho had said, yet, while ho was speaking, it always seemed directly to the point.— When he •had spoken in opposition to my opinion, had produced s great effect, and I myself been highly delighted and moved, I have asked myself, when he ceased, "What the devil has he said 1 1 " I could , never , answer the inquiry. His person was of full size, and his manner and voice , free and manly. His utterance neither I very fast nor very slow. His speeches generally short, from a quarter to a half as hour. His pronunciation was vulgar _and vicious, but it was forgotten while he was speaking. Ho was a man of very little knowledge of any sort ; he' read nothing and had no books. Returning one November from Albemarle court he borrowed - of me Hume's Essays, in two volumes, saying he should have leisure in the winter for reading. In the spring he returned them. and declared ho ha& nut been able to go further than twenty or thirty pages in the first volume. He wrote almost nothing—he could not write. sfhe resolutions of '75, which have been ascribed to him, have by many been supposed to have been written by Mr. Johnson, who acted as his second on that occasion ; but if they were written by e Henry himself, they are not such as to, prove any power of composition. Neither, in politics nor in his profession was he a man of business ; he was a man for debate only. His biographer says that he read Plutarch every year. I doubt whether he ever read a volume of it in his life. His temper was' excellent, and he generally 'ob. served decorum in debate. On ono or two occasions I have seen him angry, and his anger was terrible; those who witness ed it were not disposed to rouse it again. In his opinions ho with yielding and practi cable, and not disposed to differ from his friends. ID private conversation he was agreea ble and facetious, and, while in genteel so ciety, he appeared to understand all. the decencies and proprieties of it ; but in his ,heart lib preferred low society, - and soughs it as often as possible. He would hunt in the pine woods of Fluvanna with overseers and people of that description, firing •in a camp for a fortnight at a time without a change otraiment. I have often Wen as. tonished at his command of proper lan guage ; how he attained a knowledge of it I never could find out, as be read so little and conversed little with educated men.— After all, it must be allowed he was our leader in the measures of the revolution is Virginia. In that respect more was due to him than to any other person. If we had not had him we should probably have got on pretty well, as you did, by a num ber of men of nearly equal talents, bat he left us all far behind. His biographer sent the sheets of his work to me as they were printed, and at the end asked for my opin ion. I told him it would be a- question hereafter whether hi , s work should be pla ced on the shelf of history or of panegyric. It is a poor book, written in bad taste, and gives so imperfect idea of Piitritlk Henry that it seems intended to shqw o t e wri ter more than the subject of the work. THE PAVEMENT OF Lor:to:v.—The pavement in London is one'of the greatest marvels of our time. It covers nearly 8000 acres, two thirds whereof consists of what may be called mosaic work, done in plain style, and the other third of smooth flagging. Such a series of works far transcends in quantity. as it excels in quality, the Appian way, which was the wonder of ancient Rome. and which cut but a poor figure as connoted with one of our commonest streets. The ancient consular way wits but fifteen feet wide in the main, and was filled in with blocks of all shapes and sizes, jointed together and planed only on the surface ; the length of its devious course. from north to south of 101, was under 300 miles. The paved streets of London number over 5000, and exceed 2000 miles in length ! CONGLOMERATION OE HORRORS.-A ' letter from Morgan county, Illiuois. to the St. Louis (Mo.) News, says that a little girl, daughter of a widow, named Ironmon ger. was killed and partly eaten by a via cious sow, near Jacksonville. The shock of the horrible spectacle killed the moth er also, and on the next evening a emu phone lamp .exploded, whereby one child was burned . to death and another so dread fully injured that its recovery ii despaired of. "FEARLESS AND FREE." A MO WING DOG. A. shepherd once; to prove . ,the quick mess of his dog which was lying before the fire in , the house where we were talking, said to me, in the middleof a sentence con cerning something else: " I'm thinking, air that the cow is in the , potatoes. ,Though he laid no stress on these words, and said them in a quiet uncon cerned tone of voice, the,dog who appear ed to be asleep, immediltely jumped up and leaping through the open window, scrambled up to the turf roof of the house from which he could see ,the potato field. He then , not seeing the, cow there ran in to the barn where she was', and finding all right came back to the house and resumed hie place beside the fire. - After a abort time the phepherci said the same words again, and the dog repeated his kook out, but , on the false alarm being given at the thirdtime, the dog got up and wagging his tail, looked his master in the face with a comical expreision of interro gation, and I could not helP laughing, aloud to him, on which, with a/slight growl, he laid himself down in his' corner with an offended air as it determined not to be made a fool of again. ' ERRORS ABOUT Ting HONEY 8811.--•• The following remarks fiinn the Albany p play:dor, may correct dome eronneous notions about the ,modeoo erandi of the ' at - -s -industrious bee : v• '.s ' .4lany suppose that thk bee culls lion. ey from the Lectar of flowers, and Simply carries it to his cell in the hive. This is not correct. The nectar be collects from the _flowers is a Ramon of its food or drink ; die honey' it depodits in its cell is a secretion front its melifie, or honay.se. crating glands ; analogous to the - milk secreting glands of the cow and other an imals. If they were the mere collectors and transporters of honey from the flow ers to the honev-cOmb, doh we hhould have the comb - frequently. , filled with mo lasses, whenever the bee have fed at a molasses hogshead.. Th h oney-bag. in .I t the bee performs the sa lunctions as ° the cow's bag or udder — rely receives the honey from the secret g glands, and retains it till aproperoppo unity presents for its being deposited • appropriate store houses—the honey-e4b. 'Another error is that dui bee collects pollen from the flowers accidentally while it is 'in the search of honeg. Quite Con trary is the fact. 'Toe lilie,*- - "virhtro in. search of nectar; or , honey.• as it iv im properly called, does not collect pollen.— It goes in search of pollen specially, and also for nectar... When the' pollen of the flower is ripe and fit lot the use of the bee there is no nectar in the lower., It is generally supposed, also. that the bee gathers the wax 'from which it ~ con structs its comb from such vegetable sub: stances. This is also at error. The wax is a secretion from its body, as tlie , honey is ; and it makes its appearance in email scales or flakes under the rings of the belly, and is takeetietice by oilier bee; rendered plastic by mixture of the saliva of the bee's mouth, and laid on the walla of the cell with the tongue, very much in the way a plasterer uses his trowel." A WRINKLE ABOUT OR OF, HORSES. ---,A few days ago we met a gentleman from Alabama, who gave us a piece of in formation in regard to , ascertaining the age la a horse, after he or. she has passed the ninth year, which was new co us, and will be, we are sure. to - most of our readers. It was this : after the horse, is nineyears old, a wrinkle comes on his eyelid at the upper end of the lower lid, and every year thereafter be has one well.defined wrinkle for every year after nine. If, for instance. a horse..has three , wrinkles, he4itt twelve : if four, he is thirteen. Add th number of wrinkles to dine, and you will always get it. So says the gentleman, and he is confident it will never fail. As a good many people have horses over nibs it is easily tried. If true the horse. dentist must give up his wide.—Southern Plan ter. gia. A gentleman repeated the follow: ing beautifid thought in the presence of a young lady, who was the personification of the thought expressed•: YOUNG WOMANHOOD, -...-The sweet moon on the horizon's verge—a thought matured but not uttered—a conception warm and glowing, not yet ernbodied—the rich halo which precedes the tieing ',oa— th° rpay dawn that bespeaks the ripening peach— "A flower which is not quite a flower, Yet is no more a bud." 'Or rather,' replied the young lady, ism my mother &aye of me, "A girl that is too young for beaux, And yet too old to play hoop: , , (![)'A runaway couple from Water ville, Me., one , day last week, went to Fartnibgton and were married. Their enjoyment of the honey:noon was inter rupted after a day or two by the arrival of the young lady's father, who took for cible possession of his , daughter and was about to carry her home. The affair get ting noised about, however, the villagers assembled about the hotel and insisted that the man should have his wife, giving the father five minutes to surrender her or they would take her out of his hands. The old gentleman was obliged to give in and the runaway couple were restored to each other's arms in the presence and a midst the huzzahs of the crowd. The old gentleman finally came round, as fath ers always do io such eases, and an ami cable adjustment of dffieulties occurred. ae`The vote at "Sprinkel's Store " pre cinct, Rockingham county, Va., stood : Buchanan 188, Fillmore 1. The . Rich mond Whig proposes that the Americans of that city give the "lone star" itcompli tnentary dinner. FACTS AND FIGt7iES-4,I I O*ER OF TILE SOUTH. There are four Soathern States whiph. combined, cast 35 electoral votes, just the number to which the State of Now York is entitled. These States are Alibama, Louisiana, North Carolina and Georgia. We bait, now 'he official votes from all of these States ; and •we append them for the purpose of showing the peculiar power of the South in this confederacy.. Thus : 1,4 Buch'n. E, Vote.

New York 594,906 It will thus be aeon that New York, polling 594,900 votes. it only entitled to 35. electoral vides' in Mamie° of a Presi dent ; while tour Southern States, num bering but 290,280 men in the South, have as much• power in deciding a Presi dential election as, 594,980 men in the North ; in other words, one southern vot er wields double,the power of a northern voter.. This is what is called 4 fequality" by slaveholders and doughfaces. But let not the comparison stop here.-- Buchanan. in these four Southern States, gets 170,104 votes from the people, which entitles him to 35 electoral votes.; while Fremont gets in New York 275,440 ioiee or more than 100,000 majority over the 6 vote given- to his compitt I ultLym the States named. and yet gets but 35 electoral votes. With the advantage of over 100,000 ma jority of the popular vote he has no advent age whatever in the electoral vote. COMMONTHINGS. • The grandeur of man's nature turns to insignificance all outward distinctions. --4 His power of intellect, of consciende , of love,' of kn wicg bud ,, of perceiving the beautiful, f acting on hileown mind, on I outward nature, and on hie tellow area tures—these ,are :glorious 'prerogatives. Through the Alger error of undervaluing what is common, we are apt, indeed; to pass these by as of no little worth. But as in the outward creation, so in the soul, the common is the must precious. Sci ence and art may invent splendid modes' of illuminating thelpartments of the opu lent ; but these are - all poor and worthless, coelpirei-with the common :.1%l .whieh the sun sends into all 'our windows, which he pours freely, impartially over hill and valley, which kindles daily the eastern and western sky , ; and so the common lights, of reason and conscience, and love. are of more worth and dignity than the rare endowments which give celebrity to a few.—Channing.

The boudoir is to be hung- with cloth of gold looped with silver cord. It seems that the Sultan has destined this unique specimen of oriental recklessness of expense to be his favorite retreat in the garden of the scrag. lio ' whence every ray of daylight is always to he excluded, and where he intends to retire for the repose and solitude be cannot enjoy in the palace. FRERDOII OF— WORSHIP IN SWEDEN...... The King of Sweden's speech on the opening of the Diet, on the 23 ult.; con tains thefollowing important paragraphs : "An er.l ightened toleration for the faith of others based upon the love of one's neigh bor. and inspired by an inoomitable con e vie:ion. constitutes the essence of the ()og meg of the Protestant Church. The an? cieni laws which impede the . freedom worship must therefore give way, so 1111 the community may be in harmony wi h the Constitution." • , .

An en dowment is also in progress for a• Training School for Clergymen in Pennsylvania. Just before President Pierce's election, a New Hampshire clergyman published a certificate of his good moral and religious character. Soon after the inauguration, Pierce appointed the certificate-maker' chaplain or purser in the navy. Another preacher has taken the hint, says the Lo uisville Journakand published a certificate of.

[From the Pitteharg Gazette.] . Our readers may not have been aware— indeed we did not know • it ourselves until yesterday—that the dull smoky city of Pittsburg has been honored for two weeks past with the presence of distinguished no bility from England, blooded gentlemen, and of course exceedingly wealthy. Not. withstanding the general ignorance of the community on this point, a few of the fast young rueu of the city, and some of the staid England residents became posted and 'have paid the distinguished guests due honor; we are sorry to see, however, a desire manifested now to deny having paid these honors, which arises probably from excessive modesty. , Lord Arthur John, Hudson and Sir Charlet! Miller 1 Their position did not ear• ry them away, 'and instead of sporting it at the Monongahela, they contented them selves with the more humble accommoda tion to be procured at the Fulton House. This moderation was charming. They wore communicative too, and their admi. rem were oonfidentiallyinfortned that they had 410,000 sterling deposited with S. Jones & Co., bankers. Drinking, eating and riding were the order of the day.— Money flowed like water; every body was urged to participate with them in the good things .of this life, and every body was urged to. participate with them in the good things of this life, sodomy body ac. cepted the invitation. Sir Charles owned a 'sand batik in MIA= sours, sod such scud for making glass 1 "Demme, sir," said Sir Charles, exhibit. iug a goblet, "did you over see ettch*gless; my sand-bank will ink° the fortune of any wan ?" His &bakers never did see such I glasa, 'of course and' the glass merchants of I the city, gave es:teusive Orders for this map Inificent sand, dettirmined to excel the world Fin the matter of sand. Then Sir Charles dealt in patents;and disposed of a right for setting saws to a druggist in this city, and got the money . for it.- Lord Arthur John was nOt ouppd in sand or patent rights ; his views were more in' the agricultural hoe. Ile doubt less saw in' the distance a large advance in real estate in this vicinity, and determined shrewdly to be in ,a ctondition to, realise i be anticipated •profit. So he visited the well knoWn farm of Mr. Peter Perelnent, Wilkins township, and. was posted as to terms : examined , the grounds, the horses, the ;gallons implements, &0., and condo. ded to purchase at 15,000 for the farm and 2,000 for the stock. My Lord would give Mr. Perehuseut a check for the amount on his bankers, S. Jones & Co., who bad I 2 418,000 sterling on deposit, when the, ~deed was made out. In the meantime, Mr. P. must give up hit, coal contracts, for•the horses could not be used, and Mr. P. did so at a loss of about $4OOO. • His Lordshipo and Sir Charles frequent.' ly visited the farm. A. pig would - please their fancy, and to town porker would go ; now a fat turkey excited his lordship's de sire and to town' it went ;a pair of elegant blankets followed suit ; and any number of bottles of real' old Irish whisky - were also sent to the city.. Things went on t swimmingly. My lord and Sir Charles al so cultivated the acquaintance of Mr. Mc- Laughlin, shoemaker, Fourth street.— Mr. MuL. has the htinor stow of being their creditor for goods and cash lent to the amount of $45. We believe the trans. action originated in this wise. Lard Ar thur John and Sir Charles dropped in to buy a pair of shoes ; his lordship pulled off a pair of tolerable boots, when his aris tocratic eyes behold in the toe of hisstock iug—a hole. A half reproachful-sigh es caped hie Lordship, and he said, "it is a d--. 4 shame for a Hudson to wear a stocking like that !" This attracted the attention 'of Mr. MeL. A pair of shoes , soon fitted the feet of his Lordship, and hid from his mortified vision thereat hose. "What is the brassr' said' his Lordship running' his hand into his pocket. Sir Charles said, "My, lord, my lord, this will not do, charge Allis to any account, Mr. McLaughlin.' And it was charged. - I ffis lordship told his friend that Judge McClure advised bite to remove his do. posits from Messrs, Jone.s & C 0.,, as they were not safe ; he reeommended iu ;their place. the old Bank of Pittsburg. But his lordship was fearful, the old Bank could' not receive it at ail, so he bought .oh ars count at Burke & Barnes, an iron, safe, whims is now in his room at the Fulton House, to hold at least his doily spending money. The safe is worth $l5O, ' ~ , On the whole these representatives of Euglaod's nobility met with an exceeding ly smut reception: Their acquaintances were only too proud to accommodate them with small sums of money—fives und.teus, aud they wore not too proud to wept such coacomsdations. They had no pride to', talk of. For instance, Lord Arthur Joint, instead of allying himself to some' noble daughter of a noble and ancient house in his own, land, plighted hisuttelf to au inter esting youug lady, the deughter of, his lordship's landford of the Fulton House. Aud the marriage ceremony was to have taken place last night. ." 1 .If we were disposed to moralise at this point, we might choose two Subjects--the importance of "blood" in frep America, and the marvellous facility with which free Americans can distinguish that' saute "blood" in noble visitors. Alas for them, however—but the sequel will explain. Yesterday Mr. Perchment's Lawyer fin ished the deeds, and Mr. P., documents in hand, waited upon his lordship, for the cheek npon Messrs. Jones A Co., for Si 7,- 000. But his lordship was out of funds, and could not pay him. So Mr. Perch merit waited • upon Moms. Jones fk Co', and found they bad never a cent of his i noble lordship's Money. In the space of 1 a talon half hour, what 'a change; that farm was not sold, but he was ! Mr. Perch. ment,accordingly brought suit before the' Mayor, against Lord Arthur John for ] TWO DOLLARS , PER ANNUL NUMBER 40. swindling, and the warrants for '6lB'ol.ost wera placed in the hands of the officers. Unfortunately, his lordship had hind a buggy from Mr. Jacob Gardner, to go to Brownstown, to return io titue for the wedding. Ho did not return, and it is supposed he slued the opportunity to reach tome country railway depot and leave the vicinity. We sin cerely sympathise with the bride and herparents. The guests were invited, the minister was in the parlor, the supper was laid—Lougarey, who had-advanced his lordship $lBO in jewelry, was to act as his groomsmen, and he was' there. The police officers were there also, to watch the arrival of his lordship. But his lordship disappointed all. We presume we have not named half the persons who have been victimised by this precious scamp. A man named Broad head, a brakestnatt on the Central Road, and an Euglistnan, was induced to loan him $lOO and go to Philadelphia to lift £ll,OOO sterling, which he alleged wait lying there for him. Mr. B. was to be home tit two o'clock this morning. • His' lordship induced a simple Englishman to act as his servant and take care of his hound—he had one. , Notwithstanding - the seriousness of one or two Phaips of this oceurrence, it , is as a whole the moat laughable affair we Lave, ever hoard of transpiring in this city.-- The money losers have not the least sym pathy, and they will be targets for "roes mg" for six months. . His lordship's atter ney was also (Waived,' but rather had Ma eyes open towards the last. . We have the pleasure of recording the arrest of the titled, gentlemen by officer* Hamilton and Wray, about half past ten o'cJock last night. They reached the sta ble at that hour, and as soon as they saw thu police they mu, but they were so glori ously druuk—drunk as lords—that they were soon overtaken. , Wben taken to the ( layor'a office, $5O and a gold watch were found on Lord Arthur John. Both were committed for a hearing to-day. In the pence office they still retained their hantiur. , My Lord said dictatorially,"hand me* chair." The officer replied, "you • are 'old enough to help . yourself." • so . he did help kip self." HEALT.tt OF Mr. Sunman: The tele: graph informs us , thafMr. Sumner's phy. filiCiallS imperatively forbid him to Mom, liis . seat in the senate.. The following ei tract from. the correspondence: of et Springfield Republican will be read with painful interest ' WAsuimarozi, Pee, 1, 1856: There hi no knowing 'when Mr. ' Sum ner will be back here. He is impaties, to once more resume lie seat, and raise,. his voice, in the Senate chamber; and during the long and weary , weakness of his uneven prostration has even been're hearsing the speech he desires to makes when again in the National Capitol. He undergoes a severe discipline with cheer fulness, riding on horseback several hours each day, and living and exercising with : self-restraint in order to bring back the needed strength and tone to his nervous System. But there are many friends who shake their heads in sad doubt, fearing that he will never be more than a shatlow of his fbrmer self; that it only hope and courage that keep him from sinking under the ter.! Tilde effects of the wicked blows he re calved ; and that as these resources t can not last forever, under unsatisfying Ie• sults, he will ere long be obliged is con fess his body and his mind mastered for this world. His condition is uneven ; some days he appears vigorons, fresh. standing strong and erect, and on others be is bent with weakness and pain. and appears like a young. old man. But at dumb, whether on the good or ill days. the weight of an others hand upon his head sends a pain ful thrill through his entire spinal ealttinni. This shows whtve the trouble lies, and that it is no trifling matter: A. Calmat Jona-1n /11innis a 'short time since, the, Democracy advertised : 1 grand barbecue, to take place' on A Fri dal:. The thing was advertised. and prep. arations on a large scale made, when the committee where utterly taken aback by: visit from the Democratic Irish, a leader. among whom said to them, "An' shure, didn't ye know better than to have a bar becue on Friday, whin two.tbirds of die Dimmycratic party can't ate mate 1" icr Cassius M. Clay, in a Wealth at Oliicago, a few clays since, declared, from his own observation, that white men can and du labor in the fields, and that in Ter . as there is a German settlement, where they produce one-third more from an acre or cotton than the slaves do. - lismolous RE•ticrioN AIIBTRII4.-• The Vienna correspondent of the Indent's. dance Beige says it is beyond doubt that since the , publication of the concordat, nu amnia° persons in Silesia; Moravia, and Mohemia have embraced the reformed re ligion.
