has commenced her regular trips for the
fall season. On Tuesday, the 9ih inst.,he
left,, this place for Pittston, and returned
the next day freighted with coal, iron, and

power and speed, and we are gratified in

herself to the satisfaction of all who have
taken an interest in her success. We un

The AlxJuctel Boy.
The recovery of Mr. B irt's young son,
after being lost three years, from Albany,
under circumstances sufficiently mysterious
and romantic to furnish matter for a good
story, very naturally attracts much public
notice. As the cast is to undergo a legal
examination, it is wrong to prejudge it es
pecially by a perversion of known facts.
The by has lived, from near lire time of
bis abduction, to within two or three weeks
of the time ol bis recovery by his parents,
in the family of Mr Guulding, in this city,
by whom he wa sent to a school,md pro
bably well treated, and for aught appears,
they may have become innocently and
honestly by the child. It is assumed, in
some of the accounts that the child was
abducted by Mrs. Uuulding, but the facts
disclosed by no means justify such an as
Her account of the manner in which she
came by the boy is corroborated by all the
facts and circumstances which have yet
come to light. Mrs. Goulding received the
boy from a lady, who, we understand, was
indicted two years ago for abducting him.
and who, according to the circumstances,
yet known, was probably the abductress.
Mrs. Goulding has mw living with her, a
little girl, said to have been received from
the same lady, who may have also boen
abducted. This little girl, and Mr. Burt's
boy, were understood, in this city, to be or
phan children of some relative ofMrs.Gjul
ding, iu England. There is a profound
mystery hanging over the matter, which
very naturally invests it with all the inter,
est of a well conduced plot in an ingenious
romance ; but let us do no injustice by
giving currency to criminal charges not
warranted by facts. It is a well established
rule of law, that persons charged with cri
minal offences are to be held innocent un
til proved guilty. Let public opinion be' as
lenient, as the law, when no legal proceed
ings have been instituted. Tde little girl is

About three years since a little girl, the
daughter of a German named Henry Ball
mer, was stolen from Iloboken, where h'r
parents resided ; and although the. fa 'her
traveled over a great part of the Union, no
trace of her eould be obtained. It was sta
ted by some of the neighbors that they saw
a respectable looking woman talking to the
child, and the fact of her having been sto
len was considered pretty well established.
Hoboken was more thronged than usual on
that day, for if we mistake not, it was the
occasion of the depailure of the renowned
General George Washington Dixon on his
great Yucatau expedition, and an ox was
roasted whole, partly in honor of his de
parture, but more with the view of benefit
ting certain groceries in the neighborhood
nf the fete. The girl was out with her
mother.and berime separated in the crowd.
A few days since, the newspapers con
tained an account of the discovery of a lit
tle boy who had been stolen from Albany,
and that the persons at Owego,with whom
he had been living, also had a little girl,
who they stated to be his twin sister. Mr.
Baumer immediately started for Oswego,
and recognized in this reputed "twin sister"
of the boy his own child. When he first
saw her, he spoke to her in German, and
she replied in G rman although she had
been three years from home. The father
is now in Albany, waiting the return of
the Governor, to obtain a requisition for

Rather PakticdAr. Some years ago,
a young man.from just across the Connec

academy, became sadly infested with the
notion that all our maidens were in love
with him. While in this state of mind, it
fell to his lot one evening to see Miss H.
safely to her father's domicil On arriving
at the door the lady invited him to enter.
He did so. After a few moments' conversa
tion he arose to leave, and as Miss H. was
showing him to the door, she, innocently
enough, remarked' that they would be plea
scd to see him again. Here was an occa
sion for the exercise of Jonathan's courage

-Exercise Air Health.

and so largely insisted upon in England ;

Chance of War.
In a recent leiter from Paris to the (Tour
rier di s Ktats Cnis, by M. Gaiilardet, up
on the probability of a war between Russia
and Turkey, the view is taken that Russia
is too wise to engage in such a contest, the
perils of which she can not but appreciate.
Hungary," he say, "is not yet powerless,
notwithstanding the surrender of Comoro ;
at the first rally ing united cry from France
aud Englaud, the Magyars wou'd throw off
a yoke not yet ino'lsoluhly fastened upon
them. Poland and Limhardy would rise
in revolt, and Piedmont would not f. t slip
so fine an opportunity to avenge hersell
for the defeat of Njvaria. G;rm ioy woufJ

canoe of Democracy, whose career is cov

There would be a supreiruj crisis, in which
the destinies of all Ruropa would be invol
ved. Austria and Russia will not provoke
this crisis, and on their side E.igtand and
Fianre will avert it if th -y can. A com
mon interest summons all to bring about a
common reconciliation." This view seems
to be not only reasmiaMe, but altogether
Employ your Pen." This counsel,
i far from being superfluous. There
is a marvelous power in writing down
what we know. It fixes the thoughts :
reveals our ignorance ; methodizes oor
knowledge ; aids our memory ; and insures

more knowledge," says Bishop Jewell " by
frequent exercising of their pens, than by
the reading ot many books.'
