. A WOMAN WOES A Womitiv.—At the
County Hall, Northampton, England, a
female was recently brought up named
Catharine ,Coorne, a married .woman i
who for the last fire months has been
dressing in male attire, passing herself
off as a man and the son of her husband,
and who has been received as •the accept
ed suitor of a young woman. 'The fol
lowing are the facts of the case: About
seven years ago, a girl sixteen years of
age, named Catharine..Coome, married
her first cousin, a painter, of the same
name, at Cheltenham. After some time
they came to reside at Bedford, where
the wife assumed the male attire, and
the name of Fred, and passed as the son
of her husband, working with him at his
trade. In the same house lodged with
them a Miss Smith, a straw-bat:met mak
er, who fell in love with Fred, and Fred
reciprocated the affection, and passed
himself off and was received as -Miss
Smith's sweetheart, The intimacy has
now lasted between them five months,
Fred sleeping every night with the paint
er, and Miss Smith entertaining no doubt
whatever that her lover was a man.—
Three weeks ago they all came to reside
at Moulton, whither they were followed
by Miss Smith's father, who received 'a
letter from Cheltenham, stating than hiS
daughter was keeping company, not with
a male, but with a female, and that the
supposed father of the latter was in 're :
ality her husband. Fred, on being tax
ed with the deception, admitted the
truth of the charge, to the no small sur
prise of poor Miss Smith.

Four of the latter were from-France, one

[There is a deal of good sense as well
as'humo in the following :]
"BeiodFe of dogs."--Phillipplans iv. 2.
The Apostle well knew the mischiev
ous and :meddlesome spirit of dogs.—
Hence hls caution against them.
1. They excite fears of hydrophobia.
2. Tl.ey worry and destroy sheep.
3. .7fify disturb our slumber.—Howl
lag in hl*rid concert under our window,
simultaneously baying the moon.
4. They frighten us when out at night.
—A snap or growl at a neighbor's gate,
or wheu .lirning down a dark alley,. has
a wondeffully nervous tendency. •
5. They are too familliar. Will sleep
on the front gallery, scatter fleas, come
into the dining-roomy and 'prior, and go
to church on, Sunflay mornings.
From these, and other considerations;
I observe;•
1. To- prevent their depredations.—
Killing beighbors' .. cats,..tearing pants,
scaring school children, and going mad.
2. To' correct their bad manners:-'-
Teach tliUm they are only dogs, and not
quite eqiial to'"white folks."
3. Keep them in their places.—Wher
ever else they belong, I question as to
the propliety be their getting between
the sheefs with gentlemen, or using the
church as a dog kennel.
'Have you a dog? 'Then keep him in
a dog's place and watch him. If yon
admit him to undue familiarity, don't for
get that other folks will still think him
to be but a. dog. .If he has a shaggy
coat and 4urn-up "narrative," these will
not entigt bim to theprivilege of follow
ing you io c acc 'and - dal:03111T the
worship of the entire congregation.
Though he may be as nice and sensi his fond master or foolish mistress,
it is not very probable the preaching Will
do him any good. The intelligent fellow
might be allowed the, pleasure of trotting
across the floor and 'barking his appro
bation at the occasional flights' of the
preacher's eloquence, were a dog's grat
ification more important than the peo
ple's edification.
Hence, in conclusion, I would say, be
ware of dogs 1 and what I say to one I
say to all, beware of dogs !
Finally, to the sexton, or that good
brother who raises the tunes, I would
say, with emphasis, Beware of dogs ! and
if those canine interlopers persist'in com
ing to the place of worship, just take
them oat and cat off their tails close to
the ears.—Texas Christian Advocate.
murder was committed a short time since
at Senailly, near Dijon, by a young wo
man named Lucie Migniot, on the person
of her father. It appears from the con
fession of the murderess, who is barely
twenty years of age, that she and her
father had quarrelled on the , previous
night, 'respecting her projected marriage
with a man of whom.her father altogether
disapproved. Irritated by this opposi
tion to her wishes, she came to the des
perate resolution of murdering her father;
and accordingly, having waited tiir he
was in bed and fast asleep. she took a
chopper and struch him repeatedly on '
the head ; then, suddenly relenting, she
drew her victim out of bed to the top of
the stairs, near an open window, but find
ing no signs of life, she removed • the
body back again to the bed and screamed
for help. When the neighbors came,
she acknowledged her guilt, and was
taken into custody: On the following
day she contrived to elude the vigilance
of the gendarme:who had her in charge,
and threw herself into a well. She was,
however, got out almost unhurt, and af
erwards lodged in the prison
A Jusr LAW.—The last liegislature of
New York passed a law that no person
having a husband, wife, child or parent
shall„by will give more than half his
property to any .:benevolent, cbaratable,
literary, scientific, religious, or missions,
ry society, association or corporation, in
trust or.otherwise.", Any gift .of more
than one-half is void as to the p`xcess
above one-half.
European Times tells us that "the, Rev.
Henry Grattan,Guinness is to be married
on the 2d pf October, at Bath, to. Miss
Fitzgerald, a near relation of Lord Fitz
gerald, and Vesey, and of ?;the .Marcliio
ness of Ailsa. He intendeto complete
his mission inAnierica, and. is to sailtry
the G-reaVEastern, on - the- lith-of Oct.,
with his wife."
The Count de St.. Croix, says the Coa
rier de Etats Unis, belonging to one of
the noblest and wealthiest families in
France, became engaged, after a long
and assiduous courtship, to -•a lady, his
equal in position and fortune i and famous
for her beauty. Shortly afterthe happy
day was appointed, which was to render
two loving hearts one, theCoUnt was or

Pened that his boantifulfiance contracted
the small-pot and after hovering bet'ween
life and death for many days, recovered
her health, to• find her beauty hopelessly
lost.—The disease had _assumed in her
case, the most, virulent character, and
left her not only disfigured, but seamed,
and scarred to such a horrible extent
that she became hideous to herself, and
resolve to pass the remainder of her life
in the strictest seclusion.
A year passed away, when one day.the
Count, immediately• upon his •return to
France, accompanied by his valet, pre
sented himself at the residence of his
betrothed, and solicited an interview.
This was refused. He, hoWever, with
the persistence of a lover, presied his
suit, and finally the lady made tier ap
pearance, closely muffled in a double
veil. At the sound of her voice the
Count rushed' forward to embrace her,
but stepping aside she tremblingly told
him the story of her sorrows, and burst
into tears. A heavenly smile broke over.

14th inst.:—
"Mr. Preiident Bechanan daily re
news his threats not,to return to Penn
sylvania, the large majority in Lancaster
county for-Curtin and the Republican
ticket having deepened his disgust for
his old home. I have it from good- au

country seat twelve miles from . Wash

"Batchelor's jmir dye," and that he has
paid it several visits in order to induce
the owner to sell out at the lowest figure.

ring for his forth-coming work, "The

Charles. Napier, so distinguished tor 'his
military services in India, on receiving
dispatches from the English government
making him governor of Scinde with ad
ditional pay, and ordering a triumphal
column to be cast from the guns he had
captured, wrote, " I wish - the government
would let me go back to my wife and
girls ; it would be more to me than pay,
glory and honor. This is glory, is it ?
Yes : nine princes have surrenderd tbeir

MINECESEVAT TORTyltg.-•• Facts for the
incredulous. The agony suffered by the
limping-pilgrim.*ho' neglected to /mil
the peas he carried in his Ales as a pen
ace, was nothing to the horrible twinges,
the racking tortures which rheumatic
patients suffer. We pity the obstinacy,
or the ignorance, or the , prejudice, which
ever it may be, which has thus far pre
vented them from resorting to those
great specifics for rheumatism, Hplio
wars Ointment and Ping, It is curious,
in • a country where almost all can and
do read the newspapers, that facts of
the utmost importance to the health of
thousand's should be overlooked or dis
regarded by any of the suffering class
whom they immediately concern. Yet,
so-it is. Almost daily we see persone
moving painfully through the streets,
with.contracted limbs and joints render
ed rigid by disease, to whom the pene
trating and laxative unguent invented by
Professor Holloway"would be 'worth
its weight in diamond dust. In the Rus
sian , hespitals, in has Superseded every
other external remedy for rheumatism.
Nothing else, say the French surgeons
employed- ia those institutions, seems to
have the slightest'effect on the' terrible
forms of the malady which exist in that
inhospitable climate. The results of its
use in this country are, we are assured,
no less satisfactory. Warm foments.:
tions should in, all cases, precede its ap
plication, as by this means the peres . of
the skin are opened; and the process of
absorption greatly facilitated. The ra-,
pidity with which the Ointment disap
pears under the hand . whilebeing rubbed
in, is ststonishihg. The inflamed flesh,
or indurated [minks seem to drink in.
the cooling, soothing, relaxing unguent,
as swiftly as the desert sands imbibe the
genial rain. As an auxiliary to the Oint
ment-in rheumatic eases, the' Pills are
said to be invaluable, and we can readi
ly believe it. All external: dmordersi
more or less interfere with the functions
of the internal organs, and the presence
of disease on the surface always involves
a bad condition of the secretions and
the blood. It is by the correction of
these functional derangements, we pre,
sume, the Pills assist the cure, Suchisl
