Klect iourcrlng Anecdote.
Few must have ever possessed a greater know
lege of human nature, and greater skill in elec
tioneering than Jf on. R. P. Letcher, of Kentuc
ky, the present Minister to Mexico. Such was
his success in this line that all the traditionary
tales of stump speeches, all instances of uncom
mon adroitness, have by common consent been
fathered upon him.
It is said, that in one canvass for the Legisla
ture, about the commencement of his career,
he had a very shrewd opponent a man by no
means his equal in eloquence, but possessed of
winning ways with the people. Letcher's friends
t j! I him with evident apprehension of his com
petitor's immense success in the outskirts of
the country, how that by treating, logrolling,
Mattering the women and kissing all the child
ren, lie was carrying all before him. By chance
the two candidates met at the house of a very
iatiaeutial fanner whose support each felt would
le almost certain to decide the election. Doth
desired therefore to get into his good graces.
As frequently happens, "the gray mare was the
letter horse," and the would-be legislators saw
tlutt the wife must be won. After supper they
were assiduous in their endeavors to amuse their
Wt and hostess; both exerted themselves to
the utmost, and as far as appearances went,
neither seemed to have any decided advantage.
The children, cattle, sheep, cows, &c, were all
talked of, and the pride of the farmer and hi3
ife duly flattered.
Hod time came, and the candidates went to
led in different apartments. Letcher's oppon
ent secretly determined to assist the good wom
an in her morning's milking. That he thought
wmiM i, a politic stroke, for Letcher, a lazy
lawyer as he supposed, would sleep soundly till
Ireakfast. lie arose in pretty good season and
went to the yard, feliciting himself on his shrewd
ness, when the first glance at the state of of af
fairs gave him an electric shock, and tumbling
his air castle iuto ruin over his head. There
were two paiis already filled with foaming milk,
and the last cow was undergoing the operation ;
as she had a young calf, and was rather restive,
Letcher was making himself useful by holding
away the calf with one hand while with the oth
er he prevented the cow's bushy tail from swee
ping the good woman's face ! The late candi
date saw that he was a "goner," and after a
few spirtless observations Baddled his horse, un
der a plea of urgent business, and rode off be
fore breakfast. It is needless to add that Letch
r camc off victorious. jf&fr
On another occasion, his claims to office were
contested by a man, who in addition to various
other qualifications, was an accomplished fiddler.
There was a social gathering among the hills,
and dancing, whiskey, and some quisi-amatory
episodes among the younger people, were the
principal amusements. Letcher could dance,
toll a story, to perfection, or flatter a mountain
Idle to the complexion of a boiled lobstert but
to could not fiddle ; but his rival's really excel
lent muse was so glorious in contrast with the
scratching of ground fiddles and strumming of
tanjoe, that the hill tigers were hugelj deligh

BY MBS. AN" I. 'A MARIA FERGUSON.
Sister, when the shades are falling
Hoar and silvery o'er the sea,
Cares, through day my soul enthralling,
Leaves it then to fancy free :
Through its fairy regions wandering,
Heed I not the solemn chime
Of life's rushing stream meandering
O'er the sullen shores of time.
TVhere Lethe's wave is dimly flowing
Through the valley of the past,
Ever on its banks upthrowing
Treasures from its bosom vast ;
Forms to its embraces given
That my spirit loved to well,
For whose loss in vain I've striven
Ail its maddening thoughts to quell.
Looks, and words, and tones endearing,
Once too lightly cast aside,
Watch I for their re-apptcariug
As men watch a golden tide ;
Now with eager hand I'm grasping
Wrecks upon the breakers tost.
Till, oh joy ! aga:a I'm clasping
To my breast the loved and lost.
Bitter thoughts cease to oppose me,
While those long lost ones are'near;
Listening to the tones that bless me,
('older ones reach not my ear,
While those orbs, so truthful beaming,
Look so fondly into mine,
I forget the baleful gleaming
Which in other eyes doth shine.
Feelings trampled, bruised and broken,
Rise up in their strength and pride ;
Bearing not impress or token
Of the firey ordeal tried;
Earth's vile faith now loathing scorning,
Break 1 from its stern control,
Ah, these moments steal like mourning
O'er the midnight of my soul.
In this world, pure, bright ideal,
To the winds away I tiing
The fears that in the world real
Bound my heart like vipers cling;
Wakes my lute the sweet lays olden,
Which in brighter days it knew,
When hope, vith its visions golden,
O'er its chords a glory threw.
Sister ! in these hours dreaming,
Which so much to me restore,
On the breeze thy ringlets streaming,
Thou art with rue as of yore
Hark ? e'en novr thy voice is ringing,
Through the chambers of my brain,
And thy gentle hand is flinging
Flowers in my path again.
In the stranger's land no longer
Aliens, orphans, wander w e,
Where no pulse for us beats stronger,
Where no tie binds thee or me:
Save the precious ashes sleeping
In the churchyard's mouldering fane,
Over which, like willows weeping,
Evermore our heart3 must lean.
But away, far o'er the oceaD,
In our beauteous sea girt isle,
Who though tars have been her potion
Ever through-those tears doth smile,
Roam we aj we roamed in childhood,
O'er the daisy-studded vale,
Down the glen, and through the wildwood,
Heeding net the sun or gale.

By a dark and murmuring stream,
Skies above it bVt-3 and holy,
Fields around of emerald gleam ;
Bound whose porch the wild rose fragrant
Through the hawthorn blossoms peep,
And the woodbine, straying vagrant,
O'er the caves and casements creep :
Then, when night tin day entraces,
Gathered by the bright hearth's blaze,
Read we tales and old romances,
Filled with lore of by-gone days;
There, with dark locks meekly braided
Round her thoughtful brow and fair.
Sits our-mother, face unshaded
With one trace of grief or care.
And our gentle father smiling
(hi the group that helm him round ;
Ah. those little ones beguiling
Round them are his heart-strings wound.
But alas, soon comes the waking,
Parent, home and friends are flown.
And with bnw and lsom aching
Go I forth once more alone.
Even thou, whose quiet teaching.
Though the younger of the two.
To my inmost feeling reaching.
Could tach impul.-e wild subdue:
Thou, whose prayers so oft ascended
To the Throne of grace fur me,
Thou, whose thoughts with mine were blended
In the bond of pympathy:
Thou who through the long night dreary,
I'aticnt watched my couch beside,
Murmuring not though faint and weary
Thou, whose love all change defied:
Sister ! thou art gone forever,
Broke thy hand the silver chain;
We may meet on earth, but never
Shall iU links unite again.
On our blessed faith.s pure altar
Thou hast offered up thy heart.
And I would not have the falter
Though forever wre must part,
Lost to earth, but wed to Heaven,
Thou hast chosen wisely, well ;
Though that choice our paths hath men,
'Gainst it will I ne'er rebel.
But I know the bright band scattered,
Sometimes will remembered be,
And the household idols scattered,
Oft Bhall ri6C 'tween Heaven and thee:
And, though impious be the feeing
Which can make we wish it so,
Thou wilt pardon its revealing,
Though thy cheek with shame should glow
Thou who knowest best of any
Every secret of my breast,
Will not judge as may judge many
Of its strange end sad unrest ;
Thou, the causes well divining,
Wilt not coldly turn away,
Wilt not chide Kie for repining,
But with joy greet this sad lay.

Einjular Ulicsrtrr of a Roliber.
A great deal of excitement has recently been
created in the higher classes of the Austrian
capital, by the remarkable tni somewhat ro
mantic developements of numerous heavy rob
beries, which for years pr.st, hz.T3 been commit
ted in and near the metropolis, by or;e or more
malefactors, whose whereabouts it was impossi
ble to trace out. In order to give a thorough
insight into the ruatler, we must begin at a pe
riod when the existence of this gang was proved
by their actions.
Towards the close of October, 1818, during a
fine and clear autumnal night, the travelling car-
riage of Mr. Edward C. Brooks, a wealthy mer-T
chant of London, ho then ras on his way back
to Vienna, from a long tour in Tpper Italy and
the Lombardic provinces, --as stopped within j
three miles of Vienna, in the most populous part
of the country. One man only r resented him-
self at the coach window, and courteously, but 1
firmly, demanded the eurrender of whatever bo' of oncers, the leader of whom thereupon j buying lots of cotton to ship to his branch in

stant, the coachman was lathed to his seat, aud
the highwaymen prepared to avenge the death
of their kuder, who lay, apparently inanimate
on the ground.
The doors of thc e ah-she were tern open, but
the epectacle which there presented itself, was
such as to make the robbers pause before they
launched out upon the mission of revenge.
Miss Perry, the wounded lady, lay in the arms
of her sister, trhose rpeechlcss agony proved
the horror which she felt at the occurrence.
Mr. Brooks, still ignorant that it was he who
inflicted thc injury, had nevertheless abandon
ed all ideas of resistance, and was vainly en
deavoring to staunch the blood, which flowed in
torrents from the ghastly wound. For some
minutes the highwaymen looked upon this
niounrful scene, until a low moan from their
leader, reminded them ef the necessity of giving
him that attention which his condition peremp
torially called for. A few minutes sufficed to
prove that he was not dangerously wounded ;
the bullet, after fracturing the slender arm of
Miss Perry, had spent itself against his chest,
causing what the German call a 1'nllschi.sii, and
though it did not penetrate the flesh, had still
force enough to break a bone or two without
any other outward sign than small black spot
ou the place where the leaden messenger struck.
Thc chief soon recovered, and w as able to ri le
ofT, while he had left his followers in charge of
the carriage, giving strict orders n.t to plunder
the Englibhman and his family, but to give them
every assistance to enable theni to reach Vienna
as early a pt.sib!e, that the young lady tuiI.t
obtaiu medical aid. The orders w-re executed
to the letter ; Mr. Brooks saw hlshuros put tu
the carriage by his late assailants, who exhibi
ted the most respectful bearing toward hiiu,
and seemed rather to wih him gxl than eil.
So much indeed was he taken by the conduct of
the men, that on parting he give diuiond ring
of great value to him who had bven left in com
mand by the chief, with orders to hand it over
to his master, as a token of Lis gratitude for
tLe consideration which had been extended to
the suffering lady.
The occurrence caused an extraordinary sen
sation nt Vienna. Apart from the boldness of
the act, thc standing of Mr. Brooks and his en
ergetic action, the result of the encounter, so
far as Miss Perry was concerned, gave sufficient
interest to the matter for it to remain the stand
ing topic for many weeks. As to the injured
lady, she suffered greatly from the severe wound,
but recovered without the loss of her arm,
which at first it seemed impossible to save.
Though Mr. Brooks discountenanced all efforts
to trace out the individual who stopped his car
riage, the police nevertheless caused the most
minute inquiries to be made, but without the
A month or two passed quietly away, when
the news of another attack on the highway, this
time accompanied with a robbery to heavy a
mount, startled the police from their apathy, to
which they had abandoned themselves since they
aw their efforts to point out the perpetrat'rs of the
previous robbery fruitless. Attack followed at
tack at four or 6ix weeks interval, and they were
directed only against the most wealthy, with a
sagacity and prudence which defied every pre
caution on the part of the authorities. Years
thus passed without the least success against
these depredators ; and, late in the Fall of 1851,
three robberies were committed during one night
not one f which led to a discovery, though the
booty consisted of such articles as could not
have ben disposed of in the Austrian empire
withont establishing suspicion against the sel
ler. In th? month of January, Miss Terry, who
since receiving the wound from the pistol-shot
of her brother-in-law, had been married to a
Welsh gentleman named Trewyth, arrived at
Vienna with her husband, where her former ad
venture was by no means forgotten, and was
frequently spoken about in company. Among
those who seemed to take the deepest interest
in the matter was Baron Tregli, a Lombardic
nobleman, who for the last ten years had stayed i
at Vienna, and apparently enjoying unbounded
wealth ; he became an admirer of Mrs. Tre
wyth and her constant attendant. Rumor was
soon started, and the question was asked, why
tbe husband allowed so close an intimacy as
was exhibited in their frequent rides and walks,
one however, pretended to prognosticate the
rcsult of tll5s intimacy.

A Fast Lothario.
Some weeks Rgo our cotton and fashionable
circles were greatly edified, illuminated and
electrified, by the dashing operations, magnifi
cent air, and graceful address of a gentleman,
who came to our city with numerous letters, and
testimonials of "his high Btanding," "dislin
guished family," "influential connections," etc.
His name was "B. J. Hayne," or "Dr. Hayne,"
as he styled himself, and was recently from Phi
ladelphia, though related to the distinguished
nayne family of South Carolina. His manners
and appearance were certainly those of a gen
tleman, and might well have imposed upon the
most prudent and observing. Without being
vulgarly ostentatious, his large resources and
designs justified a generous and liberal display
of his mean3. Accordingly, he rented a large
office on one of our principal streets, where cot-
toa dealer3 "most do congregate," and furnish-
ed it in the most costly and elegant style with
deep-cushioned chairs, mahogany desks, iron
To defray these necessary expenses, as well
as to meet his personal wants, a few small loans
were negotiated, chiefly upon the assurance of
the borrower, of a return in a few days, and, in
some cases, by the exhibition of a letter of cred
it for 100,000. Thus furnished, Dr. II. pro
ceeded to launch boldly into the cotton market,
! The graceful and facinatmg stranger needed
as few facilities in this as he did m thc sperc of
his cotton operation. He soon became a leader
of the beau monJe a prominent actor in all gay
most magnificent brocade silks at WoodUefs. .

These queries naturally provoked a great dea
of indignation, an 1 le I to an extensive plan cf
operations among some of our fashionable fair
to lasso the elegant Doctor, and involve him in
hymeneal toil a, from which no Virginia girl
could extricate him. A formidable enginery of
feminine art and attraction was opened upon
him. Nor waa the Doctor of that stern stuff
that could long resist euch influences. He was
rapidly sinking in his resolves aud more than
one buxom widow or fair damsel had received
indirect intimations of his disposition to fly the
track, when alas ! suddenly by mail, telegraph
or other "cursed mode" of communication, some
information reached here which rendered it ne
cessary that the Doctor should depart hastily
from our unfortunate city. Thc next day the
numerous business friends of the Doctor were
started by reading the following advertisement
in the Picayune (of "the 18th February last :)
"Notice. Whereas, one B. J. Hayne, holding
himself forth as my commercial partner, has is
sued various obligations and signed ns by the
firm of Hayne & Eyre; and made other contrrcts
ia that name, I hereby give notice that no part
nership exists or ever has existed between said
Ilayue and myself ; nor has said Hayne ever
been authorized to use or sign my name in any
manner whatever. MANUEL EYRE."
This was quite a satisfactory assurance to a
host of accommodating gentlemen, that they
had been badly "sold." In justice to them it
should be stated that they bore their fate with
commendable, fortitude, and some were so frank
as to admit, in a quiet way, that it served them
right. The female friends of the dashing Doc-
tor were not 60 easily satisfied. The Faubourg
St. Mary was in tears for hia departure.
On the wings of steam flew the Doctor, west
ward. Stopping at Memphis, the Ultima Thule
of the cotton trade, the Doctor thought he would
take a flirt at cotton, by way of a final wind-up
of that department of his business. According
ly he purchased $5,C00 worth, to be shipped to
his house in New Orleans, and negotiated Lis
bills on the same. This arrangement greatly
improved the finances of the Doctor.
From Memphis, he proceeded to Cincinnati ;
there he fell in with a widow lady of respectable
connections and some property, who was soon
captivated by his irresistible attractions, and
after an acquaintance of a few days, married
him. In a day or two after the mrrriage, the
Doctor having obtained from a relation of th
widow the pretty sum of $10, 000 as a loan for
few weeks, announced to hia weeping wife that
he was compelled on business to proceed to Pa
ducah, but in a short time he would return to
her loved arms. Accordingly, after an affecting
parting, he departed in one of the large steam
ers. On board there happened to be a charm
ing young lady, just budding into womauhood,
who, attracting the attention of the Doctor, be
came in a short time the object cf his ardent and
admiring gaze. Ascertaining who she was, th
Doctor introduced Limself, and being of un
doubted family and of the most unexceptionable
manners, soon rendered himself agreeable to the
inexperienced and unsophisticated young lady.
So rapidly did his suit advance, that before th
boat arrived at Paducah, he was the affianced
lover of the young lady, who lived at that place.
Accordingly, shortly after their arrival at Ta
ducah, their marriage wa3 duly celebrated. Th
day after, the Doctor announced to his young
bride a prcssingneccssity, of a business charac
ter, for his proceeding to Clarksviile, Tennessee.
On his arrival at this place, he soon succeeding
in introducing himself into the best society
and had actually proposed to one of the most
interesting ladies in the village when her pa
rents asked for a delay to make inquiries as to
his position. During this delay, alas ! for th
further hymeneal asd other speculations of th
enterprising Lothario, the telegraph broght in
telligence to Clarksviile, the result of which waa
thus announced in the Picayune, of the ICth
An ArrttL The police of this city arrested
this evening a man calling himself Dr. C. Hayne,
on a charge of bigamy. It seems that there are
strong grounds to believe that he has other wive
living besides the one whom he at present ac
knowledges. She is a lovely young lady of Pa
ducah, Ky., whom he induced to marry him.
He in a short time afterwards started for Nash
ville. He was apprehended here through the
instrumentality of Morse's telegraph, and hue
been committed for examination.
And such, for the present, is the extent of our
information in regard to the operation; of Dr.
