Fifty Needles Extracted from the Breast of a
One of the most wonderful surgical
operations that has yet come to the ear's
of the scientific world, was'accomplished
in this city a few days since. It was no
less a startling feat in the line of surgery
than the extracting of fifty needles, in a
good state of preservation, from the
breast of a woman, and that, too, without
the eid , of chloroform. 'Add what is,
perhaps, still more wonderful, the opera.
tion;was actually performed by the wo
man herself, unassisted by a physician,
and she is now, we learn, gaining strength
add likely to recover without suffering
any very serious effects from it.
The ease is at once so strange and
startling that it is receiving the atten
tion of our medical den, and will proba
bly be reported to the medical journals,
where it will create much wonder, and
form the basis of '
among the eminent surgeons of our coun
try. As we are unacquainted with the
medical terms we must report it in a
plain statement, which will be readily
understood by all.
'The'subject was a young lady engaged
as a sewing girl in one of the cloak man
ufacturing establishments on East Weter
street. For a long' time past, quantities
of needles had been missing from her
"pin cushion," and the exciting object of
discussion was, not "what became of the
pins," but "what became of the needles."
Paper after paper disappeared at a much
more rapid rate than is usual by ordi
nary use, and all search was entirely
unavailing. The other day the sub
ject was engaged in her customary voca
tion, when she became conscious of a
prickling sensation in the left breast,
which grew more and more painful.—
The attack increased in severity, until
she 'was led to an examination, when she
discovered the point of a needle protru
ding from the dress at almost the precise
locality of the pain. This led to further
investigation, and the lady in a few min
utes had, with many blushes, taken from
one breast over thirty needles, and from
the other nearly twenty ! Their pres
ence there was accounted for from the
'fact that the lady had of late• contracted
the habit of sticking needles upon her
dress when she had finished using them,
which, in a short time, had "worked in"
—to cotton, we presume, or she would
have felt them, wouldn't she, reader ?
CASEOF THE MORTARA BOY.-Oar read
ers will be gratified to see the following
letter from Victor Emanuel's Premier to
the Secretary of the Universal Israelitish
Alliance, of London
:—I have received the letter
which you have addressed , to me, in the
name of the Society of the Universal
Israelitish Alliance, so liciting the aid of
the King's Government in' the steps
which the father of the young Mortara is
taking in order to recover his child from
tB. convent in which he is at present re
tained.. Persuaded of the justice of M.
Mortara's demands, I have the honor to
assure you, sir, that the King's Govern
ment will do all in its power that this
child, in whom the public opinion is so
strongly interested, may be returned to
his family. Be good enough, I beg you,
to acquaint the members of the Jewish
Society of these intentions of the Gov
eisment of the King, and receive, &c.
The Mortara case will be readily re- I
called as one of the most abominable
outrages ever perpetrated on an oppress.
ed people, as well as the most bigoted
defiance of the free spirit of the age.—
The Mortara boy was the son of Jewish
parents,and the Roman Catholic Church
got possession of him some two years
ago, by .fraud, and have since held him,
in order that he might be hrought up in
the true faith, and saved from the deadly
heresies of Jewry. The child, wished to
return to his parents ; they were almost
distracted at his separation from them ;
but neither their intercession nor that of
all liberal European Courts, availedtany
thing. At last, it appears, the glorious
revolution which encircles Rome like a
wall °titre, will smoke oat the monkish
child-stealers,' and restore this poor
boy to his iarents. Vive Garibaldi !

A Rica SECESSION CASE.—Every New
Yorker knows Coney Island. It is a
barren island of sand contiguous to the
city, and sufficiently distant to command
a view of the ocean. It le exclusively
patronized by excursion parties 'during
the summer. ANew York correspon
dent says :
One immediate effect of the election
of Lincoln, and a serious result it is, you
will admit, is the secession of Coney Is
land. Governor Davis, the ruler of that
extensive and fertile province, made his
appearance in the office of the Evening
Post,, and then and there fulminated his
proclamation. The Governor says he
will resist all encroachments upon his
domain, and will submit to no dictation.
By the kind assistance of the editorial
staff of the POST, (not being himself a
"Schallard,") he was enabled to express
his views upon the important question,
in a document of which the following is
a peroration :
"I further order all bridges connecting
these free dominions with the territory
of the United States to be cut down and
destroyed; and I forbid any of my sub
jects, under penalty of death, to trade,
deal or barter with the inhabitants of
the United States. And I further de
clare, that all laws and statutes of the
United States are null and• void in these
dominions of free and independent Co
ney Island. The sons of Coney island
will stand upon their arms, and vindicate
in blood, if they must, their natural and
constitutional rights. Let our .watch
words be : `No more clam-bakes for the
benefit of the insolent foreigners ; no
more promiscuous bathing on the beach
in the summer season ; the Papal Alli
ance and Coney Island forever !'
Given under the hand and seal of
"P. S. Hereafter the standard of the
new empire will consist of two clam
shells, rampant on a vast expanse of sea
HANNIBAL FLoamm.—Ho n. W. S. Lind
say, who is now in this country as the
representative of the British shipping
interest, paid the following deserved
tribute to Mr. Hamlin, in his speech, be
fore the Philadelphia Board of Trade :
"He said , he had met most of the gov
ernors of the States through which he
had passed, and had enjoyed interviews
with a very large number of prominent
men of the'country, in, particular Hon.
Hannibal Hamlin of Maine. He spent
an afternoon at the quiet residence of
this gentleman, and felt bound to say
that for comprehensive knowledge of
those commercial and * maritime. ques
tions in which both nations are interest
ed, he had met with no gentleman so
ftillf versed as the gentleman ust elected
Vice-President of the United States."

How TO SELECT FLOUR. First, look at
the color ; if it is white, with a slight
yellowish or, strawcolored tint; buy it.—
If it is very white, with a bluish cast or
with black specks in it, refuse it. Sec
ond,, examine its adhesiveness; : wet and
knead a little of it between your fingers;
lif it works soft and sticky, it is , poor,—
Third, throw a little lump of thy flower
I against a dry smooth, perpendicular stir
face; if it falls like powder, it is bad.—
' Fourth, Knack° some of the flour in your
',hand ; if it' retains the shape given by
the pressure, that, too, is a - good sign.
Floor that will stand all these tests it is
safe to buy. These modes are given by
old flour dealers, and they pertain to a
I matter that concerns' everybody, namely,
the staff of life. •
THE PLANNING of Es.—The London
Builder says that a spider's web furnishes
.a better plan, for the, laying out of new
cities, than any. which Jim yet been de
vised by surveyors and engineers: Any
one who tan find a distinct and complete
web unbroken, will see how beautifully
regular it is, and hbw perfectly adapted
for the qaicliest passage from any one
, point to another. The concentric rings
are not circles, btit polygoni, the radio.-
ties exquisitely. regular and straight.
How TO TELL GOOD COAL.-A writer
gives the following instructions to con
sumers of coal in making their purchases:
" Almost all coal has ' bone' in it.—
That is it has hard lumps that cannot be•
burned, heap them in as long as you may ;
and in bad coal the proportion of hone '
is very large. Here is a great waste
that somebody'has to bear the expense
of. How shall consumers avoid•it ?
Attention to the following rale will in a
great measure ensure a good article of
coal—and the best is always the cheap
. proportion as coal has broad
flat pieces of a dull, coal-dust look, it is
bonny' and 'worthless. If the lumps
are smooth and of a shinny black color,
and of a shape approaching a square,that
coal is the sort to buy even if it does
cost a little more. We will add in addi
tion that if burnins, a good article of coal
the fire should happen to go out, if the
lumps are taken out and washed they will
burn mach more readily from this treat
inent. With the hard 'honey' coal spok
en of abovehowever this treatment will
not avail; it cannot be made biirn again,
Examine the coal you buy."
A WHITE WOMAN AMONG AFRICANS.—
A Sierra Leone paper states that a white
woman, who accompanied her husband,
a missionary, up the Cavalla river last.
May, excited the greatest curiosity and
admiration among the sable dwellers of
that benighted region, where a white wo
man had never been seen. All wanted
to touch her, and great surprise was ex
prssed on feeling her hair. The king pf
the Nyinemo tribe called her " very fine,"
and complimented her husband greatly
for selecting her. And when she 'told
him that he might see other white women
who would surpass her, he said that ei
ther would never be, or else a very long
time. Owing to her presence, the at
tenthince on preaching was extraordi
nary large. During her visit at the Mis
sion station hundreds went to see her,
who said they could feel satisfied to die
now that they had seen such a wonderful
being as a white woman.
THE PRESS vs. THE PULPIT.—Henry
Ward Beecher, on a recent occasion,
said i "The articles of the press go fur
ther than the sermon, and carry with
them really more weight, certainly where
one hears three, which is an abomination
before God and man. No preacher who
is fit to preach a sermon, is fit to preach
more than one a day ; and no man is fit
to hear more; or, if he does, he is not
fit for much else. Sermons are like boys'
pop guns , however many wads you put
in, its the last wad that drives the others
PRACTICAL AMALGAMATION IN OHIO.-
Miss Georgiette Tucker, a highly accom
plished white girl, a graduate of Oberlin
College, Ohio, and a successful lecturer
on literary subjects, eloped recently, from
Toledo, in that State, with a colored bar
ber, and went to Detroit, Mich., where
they were married, to the infinite disgust
of the girl's father, who is said to be
nearly crazy from this redaction of prin
ciples to practice.

GAMEALDI'S TOLEAATION.—As an Ital
ian, Garibaldi is a Roman Catholic—a
fact which many have doubted from his
patronage, at` Naples, of that impadent
brawler, the ex-monk Gavazzi. It is
known that, in most of the, Catholic
countries in Southern Europe, and par
ticularly in Spain and. Naples.,ttiere, is
no toleration of any worship outside of
the Church of Rome. A few days before
Victor Emmanuel entered ,Naples, the
English community there sent a memo
rial to Garibaldi, praying him to grant
them permission to purchase a site, in
that city, for a Protestant, Church.—
Garibaldi's reply tan thus
" Grateful for the efficacious and gen
erous sympathy of the English, the Dic
tator thinks that this is a very small re
turn to make 'for so many services re
ceived from them in support of the noble
cause of the Italians. Not only is per
mission granted to erect a church within
the limits of the capital to persons who
warship the same God as the Italians,
but the English are requested to accept,
as a uatioual gift, the small spot of
ground required for the proposed project
for which they desire to use it.

A CANDIDATE FOR THE GALLOWS.-A
boy of thirteen, in Memphis, Tenn., had
been in - the habit of stealing from his
father's pockets, by slipping into his
room at night. The servants were sus
pected, charged with the offence, and
one after another sold off, yet the young
rascal continued his crimes. His sister
at length detected him, and silenced her
by threatening to stab her if she told his
father. She promised silence if he would
quit stealing, but he continued his hab
its, and finally the sister finding that she
herself was at last suspected, told the
whole story. The boy instantly drew a
large knife, and rushed on his sister, ex
claiming, `J told you if you told father
I'd stick." • The girl ran from him ; the
father caught his son, who kicked and hit
him, and was only; mastered by main
force. He was at last accounts locked
in a room, in which his chief passtime
was swearing vengeance on his sister.

twenty-four hundred. The American
Colonization Society have a contract
with the U. S. Government under the
law of the last session, to take charge of
all those Africans for one year for the
compensation of $lOO a head ; but the
Liberian Government refuses permission
for the negroes to remain in this terri

however, that the couple were taking

toilet, and rather than risk her ebanceii
she concluded to go as she was. The
boat came up the river, and the groom,
after selecting an elderly gentleman on

office and endorse for him as the father
of the girl, procured the neceliery li
