The Victory of the American Mare
Our exchanges give a detailed account of
the victory of the American Mare "Prioress"
in England against a field of thirty-four horses
many of which have the reputation of being
among the best horses ever Great Britain pro.
duced. The race in`which the American mare
acquitted herself so handsomely, was establish.
ed in 1845, the year when the late Emperor
Nicholas 1. visited England. Bo gave an an
nual donation $2,500, in the form of a work of
art, to be run for yearly, at Ascot; and the
race fur title prize, until the breaking out of
the Russian war, was alwaye regarded as one
of the most important at "Royal Ascot." The
Cesarewitch and the Grand Duke Michael
Stakes were instituted at Newmarket, in honor
of the visits of the two royal scions of Russia
to the cocoa held at that metropolis of the En
glish turf. The Make is reported to have been
worth from $lO,OOO to $14,000, and it is raid
Mr. 'a en Brooch has won its bets nearly a quat ,
ter of a million of dollars. "Prioress," since
the event, occupies the proud position of first

worth about $lO.OOO, In his match with Bab.

Fnuret, Junauci,.—The Ilollidayslmrg
Standard of a late date rays:—"Gar some
days pal there hot been a singular story afloat
in this community. Whmher true or not we
are not prepared to soy, but the infortnatiou
comes fleet such tt reliable source that we ore
free to soy there must he something in it.' It
appears that one day last week it men in the
Lekhborhoed of Mount Union, Huntingdon
county, while cleaning grain, suddenly discov
ered that the weevil had destroyed the greater
port of it. This so exasperated him that he
blasphemed the Saviour in such a wilful, ma-
Helot. and wicked manner, that will not bear
putting in print. He left the balm and A, eta
to thu house. where bo seated himself in a
chair, where he had remained but . a few min.
utes befiire he tutted to his, wife, and asked
her what she said. She replied dint she had
not spoken. "I thought," said he, "that I
heard somebody say that I must sit here till
the judgment day." It is now alleged that
he is still silting in the chair, unable to rise
or :peak, with his eyes ',Mug, and totally in.
eat ab oof moving his body. His family, it is
said, has left the house, where lie still remaim
ed, seated in the chair of Saturday last!—
What n terrible warning to blasphemers who
setter their passions to overgway their judg.
