The Rev. Wm. Hays. Paster of the Middle-
Spring Church near Shippensburg, delivered
by invitation in Harrisburg, on Wednesday
the 27th tilt., a lecture beforelhe-young ladies
of Mrs Le Conte's. Female Seminary and
citizens of Harrisburg, on "Woman's high rind
responsib'e mission and her consequent befitt
ing education." The lecture seas distinguished
by just and node sentiments al propriltely
and often beautifully expressed and delivered
with animation and eloquence. -The Rev
Lecturer gave to woman a high position and
showed that Providence had placed her in her
noble sphere fur the most impor tint and beni
ficent purpose , s—that man from his earliest
infancy, through all the stages of his existence
and in the highest spheres of human life felt
the influence of woman and that to her lie was
indebted for his noblest as' irations and by her
excited to the greatest achievementk .Ile
gathered from the history of-the - world and
especially our own country both the proofs
and the illustrations of his position. In pas
sing he paid a just tribute of praise to the
niotl ers. the wives and sisters of our rev o lu
tionftry heroes, and expressed his talk(' that
under Providence we were as much huh) '
to the influence of the former as to the tel
riotism and valor of the latter, that, in ,("" ",`
these would not have existed butlor th
nt in
With such views of woman's high and re
sponsible mission be urged the necessity of a
befitting education—an education which mine
ed the powers of the mind and led to n proper
development of each faculty, which laid the
foundation fur future usefulness in solid acqui
sitions and did not overleap theta for that
which merely adorns. But while he urged
the first as the most important, fie expressed
his hope that out-fern:l'e schools would unite
with these acquisitions all the real accomplidi
moats that adorn the female character blended
however with the pure and gen'al influence..
of our holy religion, as be considered such an
education the pioneer in our advancing civili

ladies of the Seminary Mt the advantages they

in the country and the proof they had given
of their• improvement of these advantages in

that their future lives, both in usefulness and
happiness, would realize the fond hopes of

The audience highly appreciated the effort
of the Rev. gentleman. Ile was listen , il to

We were glad to hear Mr. 11. say that the

Porrneitsie Com.uon.—At the time of
the opening of this institution in our city,
nearly two years ego, we alluded to the im
portant position it seemed destined to assume
among the educational establishments of the
country. We infqrvd this fact that;' while
common schools and literary colleges bad
here attained a ripo development, little or
nothing had been done for industrial education
—that education which contbinls practice and
science, and which is so. eminently adapted to
the American mind and to American necessi
ties. The Polytechnic College has grown up
out of the demands of the times. Its plan of

ins:ruetion wa's adopted by a hrghly in'elligent
Board of Trustees, atter one of their number
had visited the industrial Colleges of—Europe,
and after the 'systems employed there had t cen
carefully compared with those of this country.
The plan includes a school of engineering, of
mechanics, of chemistry and of mines. The
deparlmeta of chemistry was first opened,
then those of engineering and mechanics, and
efforts are now making to place the school of
mines on an equally liberal foundation. lit
furtherance of these efforts, the College has
recently been provided with one of the choiceA
and best selected cabinets of minerals ever
imported into this country. The collection
was brought together in Europe by the labor
of years, and without regard to cost, and is
especially valuable in its new position, became
of its adaptedness to the purposes of instruc
tion. While so much is being done by the
establishment of lyceums, institutes and free
lectures, to diffuse knowledge among the mas
ses, of both sexes, it is gratifying to the
friends of education to know that our Indus
trial College, in which young men are profes
sionally educated. in the applied sciences, is
receiving that encouragement and support to
which it is so justly entitled.—Leduer.
I Frightful Snake Story.
The following incident was related to us
the other day by one whose veracity is on
questioned, and who was an eye witness of
the fact. It is more alipalling than any WO
recollect to have ever read in the history of
these reptiles:
Some time last summer the inhabitants of
Manchester, Mississippi, gave a barbacue,
'MIMI was attended by most of the beauty
and tlishion of the town and surrounding
country. It happened that among the guests
there was a young lady, Miss M., recently
from one of the eastern cities, who was on ;
a visit to her relations in the neighborhood
of the town.
Miss M. was a gay and extremely fashion
able young lady, and withal possessed an
uncommon share of spirit and courage, ex
cept in a matter of snakes, and of those she
had so great dread that she scarcely dared
to walk anywhere, except in the most fre
quented places, for fear of encountering
them. Every effort was used, but without
avail, to rid her of her childish fears. They
haunted her continually, until at last it be
came the settled conviction of her mind
that ti he was lest hod to fall a victim to the
fangs of a rattlesnake. The sequel will
show how 80011 het, terriblu presentiment
was fulfilled.
Towards the close of the day, while scores
of the fairy feet were ki•eping time in the
dance to the mostc, and the whole compa
ny were in the full tide of enjoyment,
scream was heard from Miss M., followed
la themost agonizing cries for hel'. The
crowd gathered round her instantly, and
in)teld her standing the perfect image of
aleintir, with her hands grasping a portion
of her dress with all the tenacity of a vice.
It was sometime herone she omit(' be ren
dered sufficiently calm to tell the muse or
her alarm ; anal then they gathered from
her broken exclamation that she wits grasp
ing the head of a snake :among the totals ad
her dress, and feared to let go her hold for
fear of receiving the fatal blow. This in
telligenee caused many to shrink from her,
but most of' the ladies, for their honor be it
told, determined not to leave her in her
direful extremity.
They lueought her not to relax her hold,
as safety itepended upon it, until some one
could be found with courage enough to
seize anal remove the terrible animal.—
There were none of the ladies, however to
perform the act, anal the situation of Miss
M. was becoming more anal more critical
every moment. It was evident that her
strength was failing fast, and that she could
not maintain her hold many minutes lon
A hasty consultation among the calmest
of the ladies was held, when it was deter
mined that Mr. Tisun, who was ,present,
should be called to their assistance. Ile
was • quickly on the spot, and Icing a man
Of MICOIIIIIIOTI COOrage, he was not many
minutes within the circle of half fainting
females, until he caught the tail of the
snake and wonndit tound.his hand to make
sure of his hold. •
He then told Miss M. that she must let
go at the moment he jerked it away; and
to make the act as instantaneous as possi
ble, he would pronounce the words one,
two, throe, and at that moment he pro
nounced the last word, she must let go Iter
hold, and be doubted not he could with
draw the snake, before it would have time
to strike. All stood in breathless horror,
awaiting the act of life or death, and at the
moment the word three was pronounced;
the doctor_jerked out the largest an most
diabolical looking bustle that was over seen
in• Mississippi. The
_tvltele afThir was then
explained. The fastenings of the machine
had become loose
.during dancing, and it
had shifted its position in such a way that
it dangled about the lady's limbs, and in
duced the belief that it was a snake With an
enormous heart.

at four th,usand men, but the report is be

ce that he has received information that the
English troops attacked the Redan and the
French the Malakoff Towers, at dtiodight on
the morning of rite 18th, without the success
which has hitherto attended our efforts. Both
the French and ourseives.havo suffered con

have' fallen will be forwarded immediately,
but it will be impassible to receive' complete
returns of all the casualties before the 30th

The Moniteur announces that the govern

his allies, and that-thy Turks and Chasseurs

The next day, at daybreak. the French, and

The second despatch dated the 18th, annodn
ces that the attack had failed, and that, ad+

ardor, and had gained a footing in the Mala

In spite of all th9.-etiorts, nhich the en
emy have made, oTaii'''bulwarks stititil as List'
as ever. Long before the bombardment
began the journals or the West informed us
th,i't our walls and forts were speedily to be
put to a new proof. This made as to re
double our precautions, and we boi'e more
firmly the truly murderous fire which threat
ened :all nth destruction. Nevertheless.
thousands were devoted to death, and it
made one shudder to see the Elborns (the
steamboat) pass every two hours during the
honabardment from the south to the north
with so man 3 wounded that she could scarce
ly carry them. While standing in Bastion
No. 4—the bastion which suffered most of
all—l forgot tho' danger to which I was ex
posy(' in Admiration of the cool and stoi
cal conduct of our sailors. They fell and,
expired without a cry, though racked_with
the most fearful agonies.
The southern side of our town has suf
fered most severely and is hardly to be rec
ognized. Five hundred houses have been
totally destroyed, and grass is growing on
their ruins. The beautiful theatre no lore
gar exists. Though the upper districts of
the town are not so Much damaged, yet
there is not a single house to be seen whicji
does not bear manifest traces of the bom
bardment. The streets are everywhere
Plowed up by shot, and the pavements is
totally destroyed, while at every center
stand whole pyramids of the enemy's can
non balls and exploded shells, which 'tvere
daily collected before the opening of the
lire. In many streets live or six such pyra
mids are to be seen, each of them from
eight feet to ten feet high. Nevertheless,
business is continued, and booths are o
pened for the sale of goods. Prices, how
ever, are enormously raised, and sugar costs
one silver rouble (25.) per pound. The
supply of meat is more than abundant, but
bread is exceedingly scarce.. The streets
are tilled with peOple, and crowds - Of chil
dren run to and fro, assisting at the •con
struction •of barricades and pelting each
otht3r with balls of clay.
