Evans, who is now ten years of age, has
been for the last eight years a cripple, caus
ed by falling from a chair when he was two
years old, and wrenching his spine. From
the time of the occurrence, we have tried
every means to restore him to his natural
Shape, but all without avail. We took hint
to New York and placed him under the
tare of a physician of skill, and after re•
rosining there some time, we brought him
home no better than when we took him
there. For several days at times he was
so helpless that he mid only walk by plac
ing his hands upon his knees for support,
giving him the appearance of a deformed
hunchback. Ile:was also taken to Newburg

THE Eximoiiioil or porn
Foreign Correspondence of the toston Atids.
Rome, June ID, 1840.
The nine days' funeral honors rendered to the
deemed Pope were concluded on the lath by a
Latin eulogy, delivered by 13ishop Rosani. Tour
days previous, the body had been removed to thii
vaults, and a magnificent temporary mausoleum
erected in the centre of St. Peters directly under
the dome. It was at least forty feet high, and en
difTernnt gradations were scores of lighted wax can
dles, paintings representing the principal events of
his life, and statues emblematical of what it should
have been, for Temperance and Justice had promi
nent places. On the sides were Latin inscriptions,
that towards the door reading thus:
I.APEATI. ry nuco
ISTA . rwsznitA .
Meanwhile a large body of workmen had put up
a board fence, at least fifteen feet high, around the
apartments in the Quirinal Palace, to be occupied
by the Electoral College of Cardinals, and built up
the outside windows with bricks and mortar, su as to
effectually prevent all communication. The 14th
was cold and rainy, yet a large concourse assembled
at the church of St. Sylvester to see fifty-one Car
dinals start in proem Bien, proceeded by the papal
crucifix, and escorted by a large military force, all
the clergy chanting the anthem Vent, Creator.
After they had taken possession of the apartments
destined to be their prison until after the election
was consummated, the diplomatic corps were ad
mitted to make their foul communications. and it
is trait! that Count Rossi declared, in the name of
his master Louis Philippe, that the French Gov
ernment would in no care use their veto, for they
were powerful enough not to require it; but at the
same than he impressed upon the minds of the
Cardinals the troubled elate of Italy, and warned
them that an unwise choice tnight call in the Aus
trian and French troops. At ten o'clock a bell
was rung as a signal of departure; at half past ten
the muster of ceremonies walked through the corri
dors, warning all of who remained, with atm
omnes, and at eleven the door was closed, the keys
being in the possession of the meridian of the con
clave, commanding a guard of 2,000 men.
The provisions of the imprisoned Elector. were
carried to the door, end passed in by a revolving

candidate's clothes, that his pontifical robes might
be prepared. Now, as all the Cardinals wore the
same dress, the only clue was the size; the shoo
was very small—it was recollected that Cardinal
Gizzi had a tiny foot, and in an hour all Rome knew
that be was Pope, while couriers left to carry the
news to his family.
But there were other Cardinale who had small
feet, and one of them, the Bishop of Imola, had re
received a majority, after several ballottinge. The
heads of the various orders went to hie seat, and the

1792, at Sinigalik hear Ancona. where he was
christened Johan Maria Mani Ferretti. Inheriting
the title of Count With a handsome fortune, he was
one of the most fashionable young men at Rome;
but, when about twenty-one, was disappointed In
a love affair and took orders. He was placed over
the Tata Giovanni, a charitable hospital folinded
by a master mason fee the.tlestitute members of his
craft, and in the reign of Pius VII. sent on auditor
of the Papal Legation to Chili, being the only Car
dinal living who has been on the American conti
nent. Roaming, he was placed at the head of the
largest hospital in Rome, in 18'..7, received the mi
tre, and in 1832 was transferred to the 13ishoprie of
Imola. He was named Cardinal in 1840, and I
must say that I haVe not heard a whisper against
his character.
Ott the morning of the 16th the piaci

him two attendants, carrying the fiabelli, or pee•
cockt.feather fans. When he had arrived at the
front of the balcony, he rose up, stretched both his
arms, which until then were crossed upon his breast,
and uttered a prayer, of which the billowing trans
lotion was made by an American prelate:
a May the holy apostles Petet and Paul, in whose
power and authority we place confidence, intercede
for us with the Lord. We ask, through the pray•
era and merits of the blessed Mary, ever virgin, of
the blessed John the Baptist, of the blessed altos=
ties, and all the saints, that the Almighty God may
have mercy upon you, and that, all your stns being
forgiven, Jesus Christ would bring you to eternal
life. May the almighty and merciful Lord bestow
upon you indulgence, absolution, and remission of
all your sins, opportunity of true and faithful re
pentance, hearts ever penitent and amendment of
life, grace, and consolation of the Holy Ghost, and
final perseverance of good works."
a He then extended his right hand in front and
on either side, making the sign of the cross, after
the mention of each of the Trinity, as he continued
a And may the blessing of Almighty God, Father,
t Son. j - and Holy Ghost, t descend upon you and
remain forever. Amen."
The kneeling crowd received this benediction
with a reverential awe that actually imparted itself
to the spectators, and, take it altogether, it was as
solemn a sight as I recollect to have witnessed.

in Reeves' place, as they would not have him to

night. This remark was not nonce& and last

MATAMORAS, June 13, 1846.
Ravi nags may be found among the Texas Vol
uuteers, yet the funniest fellow of all is a happy
go-lucky chap named Bill Dean, one of Cheavel•
liar's spy company, and said to be one of the best
"seven up players . ' in all Texas. While at Cor
pus Christi, a lot of us were sitting out in the stoop
of the Kinney House, early one morning, whoa
along carne Bill Dean. He did not know a single
soul in the crowd, although he knew we were all
bound for the Rio Grande: yet the fact that the
regular formalities of an introduction had not been
gone through with. did not prevent his slopping
slicirt in his walk and accosting us. His speech or
harrangce, or ivhatevcr it may bo termed, will lose
much in the telling, yet I will endeavor to put it
upon paper in as good shape as possible. "Oh,
yes," said he, With a knowing leer of the eye, "oh

the critter by shootin' hint, and that was all, for in
three minutes longer he would have died a natural

long to cut off some chunks of meat and stick 'cm

high and dry, and sot it on fire, but it flashed up
like powder and went as quick.

Why, the fire caught the high grass close by
and the wind carried the flames streaking across
the prairie. I followed up the fire holding my
chunk of meat directly ovet the hottest part of the
blaze, and the way we went it was a caution to any
thing short of a locomotive's (loin's. Once in a

"'r he exercises at the grove closed at abunt three
o'clock and we then thought that the people would
be content to rest till the time for the display of fire
works should arrive. Not so, however, far Some
lovers of fur. had a dvertised that a greased pig
would be let into a ring on Franklin Square, and
that if any man would catch the pig, shoulder him,
and carry him from the ring he should have the
porker, and the thanks of a generous community
for his pains. Of course we went to the pig race,
and found the Square densely crowded with people,
and every window commanding a view of the street
was filled with rosy faces. In a few urinates the
pig was led forth--not a young, sticking pig, as we
in our ignorance had supposed, but an ancient hog
of the feminine gender, apparently "the mother of
many children." Many attempted to shoulder her
hat nearly all gave up the attempt after being well
covered with grease. Piggy trotted round in tri
umph for an hour or so, but at last a man making
a desperate effort, shouldered her anti left the ring

of the National Intelligencer, speaking of the effect
of Gen. Taylor's victories, soya:
" Before the end of the sitting of the Depteie4
en the 17th inst., two eminent members of the
Chamber (of the opposition.) went to Versailles,
whore I then was, to congratulate me on the Rio
Grande occurrences, and to describe the effect of
the intelligence on the Chamber. Lively satisfac

of the colleagues, and a few of his party, the near
est and most devoted, were alone ehap.fallen; their
disconcertion served to amuse the rest. It was ad
ded by my visitors that should war between the U.
States and I:lngle:id ensue, twenty thousand French
volunteers, under the command of experienced
officers, would at once endeavor to reach your
shores for the purpose of joining in the inters., ion
of Canada. This does not pass from no en an in
citement to war, which I deprecate as much as any,
under the proper reservco of honor and right; but
it is meant as evidence of the disposition of the
French in general. They are far from being rec

prepare what is called a slick of buds by
cuttin g elf a few of the imperfect I4da at
the lower, and as miy yet bc too soft
at the upper ends, leavilig . only smooth
well-developed single 1.'0,13; double bus 6
being fruit buds. Cut off the leaves allow
ing about half an inch of the foot-stalks to
remain for conveniently inserting the buds.
Some strands of bass matting
_about tSI or
1-i inches Log, previously soaked in water
to render them stilt and pliable, (or its the
absence of these ion woollen yatn.) must
also be at hand for tying the buds.
Shield or 1' budding is the most ipproi•
ed mode in all countries. A new variety
of this method now generally practiced its

American Shield Budding.--1 - laying
your stick of buds ready, choose a,smootb
portion of the stock. When the latter is
small, let it be near the ground, and if
equally convenient, select also. the north
side of the stock, as less exposed.. to the
sun. Make an uptight incision in the bark
from ar, inch to an inch and a halt Jong,
and at the top of this make a cross cut, so
that the whole shall form aT. From the
Stick of buds, your knife being very ,sharp,
cut a thin, smooth slice of wood and bark
cCutatoir, a bud. With.the ivory halt
. 4)1
your bud ding knife now raise the bark on
each side of the incision just wide enough
to admit easily the prepared bud. Taking
hold of the toot stalk of the leaf, insert
the bud under the bark, pushing it gentiS,
down to the bottom of the incision. , If the
upper portion of the bud projects above
the horizontal part of the T. cut it stnooth
ly 011 now so that it may completely fit.—
A bandage of the soft matting is now tied
pretty firmly over the whole wound, cora;
mericing at the bottom. and leaving, the
bud and the loot stalk of the leaf only ex
posed to the light and air.
After treatment.--In two tiveks alter
the operation you will be able,e wheth
er the bud has taken by its plumpnesi and
freshness. 1f it has failed„you may, it
the batk parts readily, make another
trial; a clever budder will not loose over
six or eight per cent. If it has succeeded . ,
after a fortnight or more has elapsed the
bandage must be loosened, or if the stock
has swelled much, it
,should be re moved
altogether. When budding has been per
formed very late, we have occasionally
found, it an advantage to leave the band•
age on during the winter.
