Danville' situated upon the Dan river is a
place of considerable importance, and in an
ticipation of .its being the terminus of the
Richmond and Danville railroad, is becoming
quite a brisk business' town. Within a few
years a large number of beautiful structures
have been erected, displaying great energy in
the citizens. Ouo,part of the town is inhabi
ted by Jews, and very approp - riately called
Jerusalem. Their houses are characterized by
taste, neatness and siniplicity. Upon the
suburbs aro several cottages comparing very
favorably with those which surround our cities.
This place possesses superior advantages for
becoming a manufacturing city of importance.
The Dan river is three hundred yards wide,
and as it has a very rapid descent would af
ford sufficient motive power for a large num
ber of mills.. The prineirial_bueiness is man
ufacturing tobacco. There ,are several large
establishmentry engaged in this occupation, but
as. the price of tobacco is very low but one
factory wad in operation. The manner of
preparing it for market is a curiosity to one
who has never witnessed it. In the factory
which I visited there were between thirty and
forty nogroes nt work; about one, half were
' females. Some were stemming, others roll
ing, some pressing and others packing. One
can roll as fast as two can stem.' The tobacco
is first cleansed from any. dirt which may ad
here to it, by shaking, then thrown into a pile,
and if it is intended to bo sweetened; sugar or
licorice is scattered over it in the evening and
in the morning it is considered fit for use.-
- The darkiesacquire:great'skill in stripping the
leaf and in forming the plug. Much of the
tobacco being manufactured was the quality
usually sold as I:L./engross or Cavendish in'tlie
North, which is thud() Of what they mill trash
tobacco, being the refuse .of better qualities.
It would bo sufficient to curo any one of to
bacco chewing to observe the manner in which
the darkies handle it, for Path certain that it
does not • merit the reputation of being the
cleanest morsel a moo may take into his mouth.
The odor wad very disagreeable and impressed
me with the idea that it must be an unhealthy
occupation. lint should man cease to gratify
his appetite if it does cost the life of a few
slaves ? As Virginia does not possess the ad
vantages of internal improvements, her rivers
have bumf() the highways for the transporta.
Lion of freight. Boats called batteaux aro
used; they are long and narrow and capable
of carrying about two tons. These are man
aged by negroes, and it is remarked that free
‘darkies' are the most skilful and successful
bone-men. Very tow cargoes enti usted to their
care are lost or injured, and the loss of lite is
infittitelyamaller than in the case of slaves.—
"Why it is so was not accounted for, but per
haps the ilcason might ho discovered. With
Danville I wilt bid farewell to the 'Old Domin
ion' for the present.

pie from the sleep of ages and excite them to
activity. About four miles distant is the bat
tle ground of Guilford Cc urt house. No tra
ces of the battle are perceivable; now and then
cannon balls are ploughed np. We passed by
,the position where the engagement commenc
ed, but had not time to pass over and examine
I the ground.
Our next stop was made at Salem, the far
fumed Moravian settlement. All the inhabi
tants of this place are Germans, end adhere
strictly to the manners and customs of their
fathers: A. Pennsylvanian feels somewhat et
horno here, for many things remind piin, of the
industry, neatness and comfort of our villages.
No one is permitted to become a settler unless
1)e is willing to become a member of 'ttte Mo
ravian Church and to conform to their cus
toms. With' all their strictness it is said that
many of their young folks will go beyond the
precincts of Church government,. and like the
young Qualteresses will bear the anathema ?f .
excommunication in order to unite their des
tinies with outside barbarians. The Female
Seminary at present. has nearly three hundred
pupils. , Music, the national characteristic of
the Germans, is' taught very .successfully.—
The place has the appearance of antiquity and
seems to . he losing ground. Such exclusive
communities do not accord with the spirit of
young Ainericanisn3, and will not be able to
withstand the influences of civil, political and
religious progress. Their regularity is pro
verbial, and there are many things connected
with the association which it would be advan-
tageous to copy. Stokes county is rich in
minerals, Marble, limestone and coal are
abundant; within a few miles of Germenta, the
former county seat, there is a natur.il curios
ity styled a petrified forest. Many of the spe-
Milieus era beautiful petrifactions of the fern
and other trees. Germanta is noted for• an
Institution, which has a reputation second to
none of its kind in the southern States, under
the patronage of the Masons, and bids fair to
become a seat of learning worthy the liberali
ty of its founders, and the extensive patronage
of its friends.

TUE FOND WIFE;
or, Firmness of the Female Sex
,From the Diary of a Physician
I had for several months been in - Constant, at
tendance on Mrs. St—, a young married la
dy,of cousiderable fortuneand family; who was'
the victiin of the terrible scourge of the female
sex, a cancer To groat personal attritotions
she added uncommon sweetness of disposition;
and the fortitude with which she submitted to
the fearful inroads, of her malady, together
with her ardent expressions of gratitude for
such temporary alleviations as her anxious
medical attendants could supply, contributed
to inspire me with a lively interest in her fate'.
I can conscientiousl2 l say, that during the pe
riod of my attendance, I never heard a word
of complaint fall froni her, nor witnessed any
indications of impatience or irritability. . lq
found her one morning stretched on her crim:
son sofa in the drawing roemi. v ird though her
palid features and gently corrugated eyebrows
evidenced the intense agony she was suffering,
on my inquiring what sort of a night she had
passed, she replied in a calm and tremulous
tone, ooh, Doctor, have had a dreadful eight, -
but I am glad Captain St— wasn't with' me
for it would have made him .very wyefichecfr-
At that moment a' fine flaxen hatred little
boy, her first and only child, cams runnmg in
to the room ; hls blue, laughing eyes glistened
with innocent merriment: I took him on my
knee and amused him with my watch, in order
that he might not disturb his mother. The
poor eufferer,,after gazing on him with an air
of fondness for some moments, suddenly cov
ered her Oyes hand with her hand, (how slender!
how,snovvy I how almost transparent was that
hdnd!) and I presently saw tehrs trickling
down her fingers, but she uttered hot a word.
There was the mother., The aggravated ma
lignity of the disease rendered an operation at
length inevitable. The eminent surgeon who,
jointly with myself, was in regular 'attendance
on her, feelingly communicated the intelli
gence, and asked whether she had fortitude
enough to submit to an operation. She as
sured him with a quiet smile of resignation,
that she had for some time been suspecting as
much and bad mode up her mind to it, but on
two conditions—that her husband, (who was
then at sea) should not be informed of it, 'and
that she should not in any wise be bound or'
Her calm and docilely° manner convinced me
that remonstrance would bo uselvq: -
looked at me with 6 - doubtful air. She observ
ed it, and said, 'I see what you are thinking
of, Sir ; but I hope to show you that a
woman has more courage than you are willing
to give her credit for.'
In short, after the surgeon had acquiesced
in the latter condition—to which be had nape
daily demurred—a day was fixed for the ope
ration, subject of course, to Mrs. St. 's
state of health. When tho Wednesday arriv
ed, it was with some agitation that I entered
Sir '8 carriage in company with himself
and his senior pupil7lr. —. I could scarce
ly avoid a certain nervous tremor—unprofes
sional as it may seem—when I saw the opera
ting case on the seat of the carriage.
'Aro you sure you have everything ready,
Mr. —?' inquired Sir , with a busi
ness like air which somewhat irritated me.—
On being assured of the affirmative, and after
cautiously casting his eyes'O'ver the instrut
moats to make assurance doubly sure, we
drove off. We arrived at who resi
ded a few miles from town, about two o'clock
in the afternoon, and were immediately' ush
ered into the room in which th'e operation was
to be performed—a book parlor, the window
of which looked into a beautiful garden: P.
shall never be pardoned, I fear, for acknowl
edging that tho glimpse I caught of the pale
and disordered countenance of the servant us
he retired, after showing us into the room
somewhat *disconcerted me; for in addition to
k.. 0 deep interest I felt in the fate of the love
"•,,suffortir, „I had always an abhorrence for
the: operative, part of the profession, which
many__years of practice failed to remove:
The ruloessary arrangements being at length
coMpletod—consisting of a hateful array of
instruments, clothe, warm water, &o. &
I message was sent to Mrs., St---, to inform
her that all was ready.
Sir— was reaiting a jocular and not very
well timed allusion to my agitated air, when
the door was opened, and Mrs. St— entered,
followed by her two attendante. Her step
was firm her air composed, and her pale fea
tures irradiated with a Smile, sad, however, as
'the cold twilight of October.

on the corner side of the chair, with her left
arm thrown over the back of it, and her face
looking over her right shoulder. She gave me,
her right hand, and with My left I endeavored
to hold Capt: St.—'s letter as she had desi
red; she smiled sweetly, and as if to insure
me of her fortitude; and there was something
so indescribably affecting in the expression of
her deep blue eyes, that it almost broke my
heart, I shallneverforget that smile as long as
I live. Half closing her eyes, she fixed them on
the letter I hold and did not once movethem
until all was over. Nothing could'Consoln me
at this trying moment, but a conviction of the
consummate skill of Sir—, who now with a
calm eye and steadyhancl, cornmencedthe op

her fame quivered with a convulsive shudder
and her cheek became ashy pale. She - prayed
inwardly that sho'inight faint, so that the ear
lier stage of the operation might be got over
while - shi - wds in a stilt° of insensibility. It
was not the case, however; her eyes continued
riveted in ono long, burning gaze of fondness
on the beloved hand-writing of her husband ;
she moved.not a limb, nor uttered 'more than
an occasional .sigh, ,during tho whole of: the
protracted and painful operation. When the
last bandage had been applied, she whispered
almost inarticulately, "is it all over doctor ?"
- "Yes, madam," lrepliod, "and we are go
ing to carry you to bed." -
"No, no—l think I can walk—l-will try,'
said she, endeavoring to rise, but on
assuring her that the motion might perhaps
induce fatal consequences, she desisted and wo
carried her sitting in the ohair up to bed.—
The instant we laid her down,
and continued so long insensible t h at Sir—

limes commits the error of attempting a report
after giving but five minutes' attendance in the
lecture room! The critic should never bo

from an innate law of his being I The cause
has been attributid; to disease, or.,insanity,

is capable of holding but half a ledture, and ho
naturally pug out when his mind is full. The
man who goes -to sleep, at first ,nods to his

audience grows weary, the best remedy is to
tell a story. As listeners, the ladies are the
best, for they are always disposed to kindness.
The lecturer here paid a high tribute to wo
man. He closed witd some praotical sugges

During the delivery of the above lecture

AN ABDUCTION INDEED
We oopy a passage from a paper read before
the American Geographical Society by Capt.
Gibson, lately returned from the East Indies,
and bringing with him some new facts as to
tie tribes of Ourahg-outongs inhabiting the
deserts of that part of the world. Ho says :
"My statement of the extraordinary peculi-
arities of these apparently semi-human beings
has led to the expression of so much cu iota
ty to know more of them by some, and of kdp
ticista as to the fact of their existence on t
part of otherti, that' have deenied it dud to
myself and to public curiosity to give some
additional 'acts along with all the corrobora
tive evidence that has fallen unddr my ;Cheer- .

I heard ninny remarkable stories of the agility,
audacity, and especially of the superhuman
ourang-outang. I willtrehpaes upon your at

Thie Savage version of the anssio story of
Pluto and Proserpina is well authenticated,
and the girl, now a grown up woman, is living
at Ambenya, in the Mob:ices." ,
A corrospandent of tho Cincinnati Gazette,
writing from Paris, gossips as follows :
In a late letter to the Gcrietfe I took Qom.
sion to describe a reception'and a ball at the
Tuilleries, in which mins mentioned the intro
duction to the Emperor of a beautiful young
'English girl. Since that time this lady's name
has become the talk cif Paris. After the war
news, the neat question is, have you seen Miss
S? The Emperor, to see her closer, invited
her to the.Tuilleries to dine with him. This
circumstance has given rise to a groat deal of
scandal in "upper tendom," . which. need not`
be repeated, and which is no doubt , without
foundation. Sympathetic ladips oven went so
far as to pity poor Eugenia. The Emperor,
said to Miss S., at his introduction, and with,
more than his usual brusqueness, "lilademol
selle, you aro the handsomest woman I ever
saw in my life." Considering that the Empe
ror piques . himself on his knowledge of women,
horses and dogs, this is regarded as a lingo
compliment. Miss S. is, without doubt, the
handsomest woman who has been seen at the
Frpnoh court-in a hundred years; she:unites
all those attributes of beauty which one reads
about in novels and never sees. I have seen
her three times at the court balls, and-she is
constantly surrounded by a crowd of the:cnri
ous, which keeps her in motion from place to
place, to avoid the annoyance. Whether tit
the Tuilleries, the Hotel do Ville or the Ope
ra, in going from one group of talkers to
anotherohetsubjeotis always NUBS Smead. ,A
German Princess, who is certainly very beau:
UM, found her partisans at the last ball; but
they soon sank _into a misoroscope minority
before the overwhelming preponderance in fa
vor of the English beauty.
Amongst other stories told of this lady, it is
said that already a young FrenchtSan, a vis
count and rich, offered her his hand in mar
riage. The match was every way eligible, and
was accepted by the young lady and her friends.
She has travelled a great deal, and desires to
travel still more. The eve of the day fixed
for the signing of the contract, Miss S. said to
her future husband,
'Before taking the pen in my hand, I wish
to demand a question.'
Let us remark, in passing, that a Parisian
lady would-never have dared to say '1 wish,'
the eve her marriage.
'Speak,' repliolthe future husband.
'Will you agree to accompany me to Con
'flow V replied the young man atupified.
'Miss S. repeated the question.
I ask if you will engage Yourself to make
with ihb a voyage to the Orient?'
'As soon as wo are rnqrried.'
'But you do not think'of that.'
' 'On the contilary I have thought much of it
for a long time.'
'But recollect that that country is the thee
tro bf war.'
1t is precisely the war I wish to 0/JO!'
jAnd there arellangors of all sorts for tra-

phrases, but the 'refusal was none`the less pos.

The marriage was broken of irrevocably.
'Never,' said Mrs. S. 'will I marry a lazy
husband, a . man who-is afraid of the cold or
battles—a Man Who refuses, on the eve of mac
rings, to gratify a reasonable fantasy.'
