    An Heroic Wile
Throe men of bully reputation went into the
house of a gentleman in Paris, Ky., and asked his
%ifs where he was, avowing their business to be to
tie him up and whip him for slapping the child of
one of their chums. She replied that he was in
bls shop. They went off, and she followed them
into the shop unperceived, and picked up a mallet
and chisel. One of the men drew a knife and pis
tol and advanced to the husband, who cornered,
calling murder. The lady, however, advanced
with necessary speed, and dealt the assailant a blow
with the mallet upon the shoulder, dislocated it
and silenced him. The second was met by the wo
man, and a blow with the same instrument, dealt
with such force on the forehead as to break the
skull, put hint hors de combat. The heroine turn
ed to her husband, and Mond him tussling with the
third on the floor. She went to work upon this
third gentleman's head as delibeately as circum
stances allowed, and soon succeeded in relieving
her husband from all fear of "murder', at his hands.
All the gentlemen assailants had to be packed!
Going to Bed Sober.
The last number of the Knickerbocker has a
good anecdote of a man who rarely failed to go to
bed intoxicated, and disturbing his wife during the
whole night. Upon its being charged by a friend
that he never went to bed sober, he indignantly
denied the impeachment, and gave the incidents of
one particular night in proof:
"Pretty soon after I got into my bed, my wife
said, "Why, husband, what is the matter with
you? You act strangely!" "There's nothing
the matter with me," said I, "nothing at all."—
"I'm sure there is," said she, "you don't act natu
ral at all. Shan't I get up and•get somothing•for
you I" And up she got, lighted a candle, and
came to the bedside to look at me, shading the
light with her hand. "I KNEW there Was some
thing strange about you," she said, "why, roe
"Now, this is a fact, and my wife will swear to
it; so don't you slander me any more by saying
that I haven't been to bed sober in six months—
'cause I have !"
—The Greensburg Argus gives full particulars of
the late grand battle at "Packsaddle Valley," be
tween-the 'Far Ups' and 'Far Downs.' It appears
that the party of one side went from the neighbor
hood of Greensburg, and met an equal number of
the other side front Johnstown. They encounter
ed in the "Packsaddle Valley," and after firing
one or two rounds, with their guns and pistols "got
mixed up," as the paper states, and then used the
butts oftheir guns. Several were killed and wound
ed on both sides. The Johnstown party retreated.
The Argus says, "Judge Knox gave the case to
the Grand Jury, at the opening of the COUrt on
Monday last, but we are not au-are that anything
has come to the konwledge of the officers of tke law
to warrant ar rests."
This is rather curious, certainly. Persons kill
ed and wounded on boils sides, and yet the officers
can find nothing to warrant arrests. They should
purchase bettor spectacles, then, for justice's sake..
—Pittsburg Disyatch.
The following excellent advice we take from the
columns of a valuable cotemporary. It is good,
and worthy of being treasured up by our young
men who aro engaged in learning trades, in order
to make themselvs useful in utter life, ornaments
to society, and good citizens:
"Many of the apprentices of the present day arc
serving out their times as a mere task, without
aiming at proficiency in their trade. Tens of thou
sands a c only living—staying—with their masters
satified with doing as little as possible to advance
his interests. In this age of competition, it is ne
cessary for every mechanic to be a good workman,
in order to get along well in the world. But bow
few seem sumulated with a suitable ambition to
lead them to success. Bow few spend any oftheir
spare time in considering the difficulties to be sur
mounted in their vocation—in studying the science
of their calling, &in le.,rning the wants aud peculi
arities of the world with which they will soon have
to mingle. How few seek to improve their mor
als, and extend the measure of mental comprehen
sion, by reading good books t Bow many ever
stop to think, as they loaf away their spare time in
shops, stores, on the streets and other customary
places of resort, that education—mind—is the most
certain passport to success its business, respect in
society, and usefulness in their country? Boys
apprentices, young journeymen, do you ever reflect
on these things :"
front the Miners' Jotrnal that a shocking tragedy
was enacted in the borough of Schuylkill Haven,
on Thursday of last week. It occurred in open
day light ; thout 12 o'clock. A man named Pifer
stabbed his wife with a . knife in the left breast caus
ing almost instant death. Ile then placed her in
bed with their two children and left the house.—
The lifeless woman was afterwards discovered by
some of the reighbors at rated by the crying of the
children. Pifer has not been heard of since. In
toxication is said to have been the cause of the hoc-.
rible deed. The woman was young and generally
respected. Tho case has produced much excite
ment among the citizens.
tir The census of the city of Cincinnati has
been completed. The entire population is now
116,078. In 1840 it was 46,382, showing an in
crease of 64,697 in the last ten years. This is cer
tainly a very extraordinary increase, and ono that
has but few parallels in the Union. The Chroni
cle says that the population of Cincinnati exceeds
that of St. Louis by 36,000, and falls but 25,000
below that of New Orleans.
