A named Lamont, residing in the
unity of 'Rhinebeck, during the past winter
misplayed an Irishman, who came to their
honsomm day for assistance, to attend to the
general outdoor business of the hone'. The
!tunny thought he was an honest and industri•
one man, mail a few days ago, whoa he went
to Mrs. Lissom and desired some money, say
log he was going away, Mrs. Lamont, not
having the change with her, told hiM to go to
the village and see her husband, who was theta
on business, and he would give it to him. lie
According's , did so, and obtained tho money he
wanted. The nest morning, when Mr. La
mont got up to make the ire, he found the
windows and doors all open, and all the knives,
forks, chairs, dfc., lying around the dining
He immediately called Isis wife, who, an soon
as possible, come down, and on going. into the
room where the man slept, she found him in
beds She then began to look about for her
things, and found almost all her silk dresses
missing, together with her gold rings and chain,
and n lumber of ocher very valuable articles.
tinspieion immediately rested upon the Irish•
mar., who was arrested, and on his being
brae& before a jantico, confessed hia-guilt,
and was sent to prison for twenty days. In his
room were found the ring and chain, and in a
place called the Hallow, near the house, were
found all the silk dresses, which ho had taken
to the villa "o , to sell, hut finding no ono to buy
them, hid them in that plaice.
Two or three days after the occurrence, while
Mrs. Lamont was in the house all alone, she
thought she heard footsteps in the parlor, and
on going up into the room, she perceived a tall
rawboned Irishman in the room, and just about
to enter into her bedroom, with a big thick
stick, about three feet long. She demanded
what business he had in her house when he in
formed her that it was his house, and that if
she did not go out of it he would soon make
her, that they had sent one of his countrymen
to jail, and he was going to have revenge.
Finding she could not get him out, she went
into an adjoining rm., whore her husband had
a loaded musket, and cocking it, went hack
int the parlor, and bringing the musket up
level with his head, told him to depart; that if
lie did not she would blow his braise out.—
The fellow, not liking the looks of the instru
ment, began to more off; and as he went she
followed with the musket up to his head for a
distance of nearly a quarter of a ['tile, when
she was met by some men who took him into
Cheap Shirt Making in New York.
A. legal investigation now going on in New
York, discloses some curious facts touching
the manner in which the seamstresses, of that
city, are imposed upon. The matter under in.
vestigation has special reference to shirt ma•
kers, of which there seems to be a very large
ntonber there, and their condition may be fudg
ed of by the miserable price paid for their la
bor. The standard price is twelve and a half
cents per piece, and the garments must he well
made, as it has to undergo a thorough insp..
Lion, with bosom and collars—bringing from
one dollar twelve and a half cents to one dollar
twenty-five cents at retail. The material in
these shirts cost probably about thirty-seven
and a half cents, so that the total coil. is fifty
cents which leaves a clear profit to the employ
er of one-half at least fur the purchase of the
material, the cutting, and the sale. Two of
these garments are, no doubt, a full day's work
making the extent of the weekly earnings 0110
dollar and a half. With this miserable pit
tance, many of them have to feed small fami•
lies, pay house rent,and clothe themselves and
children. It is needless to say that it cannot
be done, and the consequeuce is a larger a
mount of misery and destitution. Their pill
able condition is taken advantage of by many
in business, whose duty it is to assist attd tilag
cur rather than oppress. In the case noticed
in the New York papers, two dollars wore re
quired to be deposited as security for the ex•
ecution of the work, and the prompt return of
the garments. Upon their return, fault was
found with them, and an offer was made to sell
them to the maker, but the two dollars dopes•
ited were not returned. We have but litte
doubt that a similar practice prevails in this
city, among the grasping and heartless.—Duity
A New Potato.
A. B. Gray, Esq., dada. , his recent explora
tions across the Continent ' , for the purpose of
ascertaining the practicability of constructing a
railway to the Pacific, discovered a remarkable
plant at the head of the Gulf of Culitbrnia, it
being found its abundance through a range of
naked sand hills skirting "Adair Bay." It is
described as a parasite with a large and fleshy
root, and has been called "Aminabroma Son
orte,' signaling Sand Food of Sonora. The
fresh plant is cooked by roasting on hot coals
and re.fembles the sweet potato its taste, hav
ing touch saccharine matter about it. It is
likewise dried and mixed with less palitable
kinds of food, such as inusquit, beaus, &c.—
It is represented to be a very delicious yogi
table, and could it be transplanted, Mr. Gray
believes that it would constitute an important
acquisition to the table, probably .t second in
demand to the sweet potato or asparagus. It
is said that the Tannye, or Sandwich Island po
tato has beets introduced into cultivation in
several of the Southern States. It is descri
bed as a "delicious vegitable," and the, plant
is very productive. i 9 editor of the San
Antonio Texan says that a gentleman in that
vicinity raised six bushels of the article upon
41 piece of ground fifteen feet square.
The California Senator.
The Senatorial contest in California is an
exciting one. The San Francisco Journal (In.
dependant) has no hope of the election of Dr.
Gwin.—The Journal advocates a fusion of the
Northern Whigs and Democrats upon a Friend
of Free Labor, and to sink party. This
would settle this triangular contest ono way or
the other, and show the true sentiment of the
California Legislature on the repeal of the
Missouri Compromise and Slavery Aggression.
George C. Bates Esq., formerly an influential
Whig politician in Michigan writes that the
present prospect is that the Whigs will unite
with the anti Gwin Democrats and elect an in.
dependent Northern Democrat, probably Dav:l
Broderiek—opposed to to the Administration
and the Nebraska bill.
re— A law is about to he enacted by the
Legislature of this State, which will affect, to a
,considerable extent, the existing legal relation
between husband and wife, and parents and
children. The first section provides that the
power of any married woman to bequeath or
device her property by will shall be restricted
as regards the husband, to the same extent as
the husband's power so to dispose of his prop.
erty is restricted us regards the wife, namely,
so that any surviving husbaed may, against
her will, elect to take such share and interest
in her real and personal estate as she can, when
surviving, elect to take against his estates, or
otherwise to take only her real estate as tenant
by the courtesy.
GREAT HUNTINU.—A party of Sioux Indi•
ans who recently went on a hunt along the
east side of the Mississippi river and in the
neighborhood of Rice Lake, Minnesota territo
ry, killed in one month five hundred deer, and
a very large number of smaller game. This
was not on the proper hunting ground of the
Sioux, but they asked and received permission
to hunt there from Governor Gorman. During
the hunt they encountered a party of their in
veterate enemies, the Chippewas, and had a

Tim Chicago Press of Feb. 24th has been
furnished, by a gentleman from Latfaiette, Ind.,
with the details of a rumor current in that city
which save, on the Saturday preceeding the
memvarde storm of-the 21st of January, two
families, vumbering ten persons, moving from
Southern Luba. to Northern Illinois, arrived
at Oxford, the county seat of Benton county,
Ind., about forty miles northwest of Lafayette
with two ox teams, and well provided with ne•
cessaries for the road. They remained there
through the storm, and on Monday mor•

five miles from Hartford, came upon u sight
which filled him with horror. . .

viscera had been removed, lay upon the ground,
Inside of one of them were the frozen bodies
of four children, and in the other the frozen

to save their lives. Not far from this spot was
found the body of the other woman of the par.

one of the men. The two other men had not
been found. . . .
It is probable that fhe party became intoxi
cably involved in the snow drifts on the bleak
prairie and lost their presence of mind. After
horning up their wagons it would seem that
the men had killed two of their oxen for a
shelter to those found in them, and then, ac
companied by ono woman, vainly endeavored
to reach the town they had left, and procure
aid to rescue their companions. The two other
oxen had wandered Mt There was nothing.

has so long been in dispute between the North
and the South, has been finally arranged ami•

The Book Concern is to pay the Methodist

and the blilatice in cash—sls,ooo down, the

QUEER MAT:toteNut FREAE.—A letter from
a citizen of Livingston county, Kentucky, to
the Danville Tribune, relates the following bit
of family history in that neighborhood :
"A 1 widow laity took an orphan boy to raise,
quite small, and when arrived at the ago of
eighteen she married him, she then being in
her fiftieth year. They lived many years to•
gether happy as any couple. Ten years ago
they took an orphan girl to raise. This tall
the old lady died, being niaetysix years of age,
and in seven weeks after the old man married
the girl they had raised, he being sixty.eight
and she eighteen."
An lowa paper says that the people there
have added another measure to their arithme•
tics. It is called "drunkard's weight of Inca.
It is as follows
2 glasses make I dram.
8 drams make 1 drunkard.
