Those men had scuttled the gallant old Whig ship—they had bor<*d holes in her bottom and sunk her, when he thought slie w as tit to take another voyage.

Dr. Bryant, ol Philadelphia, one of the noble volunteers now at Norfolk, in a letter to tiie Pennsylvania Inquirer, alter referring to the scenes of sorrow and distress caused bv the ep idemic, adds : "Party strife is rampant through the land and While politicians are fulminating their a nathemas abroad, h-re, in the city of pestilence, Catholics and Protestants, men of the North and men ot the South ; peacefully and harmo niously tinile in all the olfices of brotheilv love and self-sacrificing kindness.

Before partisan stril* has taken its pbreitsied hold upon our* and severe?! the ties vv'hich bind us as a people, let us learn these impor tant lessons from the present afflictive dispen sation of Providence—namely, that we ail mu aiiaily love our common country : that, what ever religion we may profess, we should make it the chief aim of our being lo exercise towards, each other that charity which, in the Divine Scriptures, is said lo fie a greater virtue than faith and hope." We respond to the noble sentiments of Dr. Bkvant, with all our heart, and urge tfiem up on that prescriptive party, winch seeks to dis franchise a fellow-citizen, because of his birth place, or the forms, of his religion. What a galling rebuke has been administered to the fanaticism of the Secret Order, by tlie self-sac rificing charitv of the Sisterhood of ihe Catho lic Church, amid the pestilence of Norfolk.— To them, death has had no terrors, w hen it stood in the way of th**ir duly. Bound to Christianity by chords which reached to Heav en, no persecution could sever them —no at tempted ignominy weaken thfi'r • strength.— Prompted by the workings of that gentle spirit,, which is ever ready to succor those iwdistre.-s, they dew to the assistance of-suffering mortals,- and with woman's fortitude grappled with tlie monster disease, indifferent as k>-their own f.\,te, so that humanity could be vindicated.

One ol the old men came tui war'l upon tiie gravelled and bard trodded avenue h-ading with turn a woman, lie made tiie woman kneel down tied her arms behind her, and bhnUiolded inr eyes. Then bringing a gieat bagin-t made open with meshes oi rope, he put it over the woman and laced up Hie mouth, fastening with knotted intertwining cords in such away tiiat it seemed an impossi bility lor iier to extricate lieise.i Irom it. I tie man tiii-n took a closely-:woven wicker basket that narrowed at the top, lifted ttie woman in tiie net Irom the ground, and placed her lit it, though it was not without some exertion that he could crowd tier through the narrow mouth. Having succeeded in getting her into the bas ket in wii4rh, Jioiii its suiuii sizw as m-cessa rily a damped position, tie put the cover upon it, and threw over it aw ide strip ol Cutleii c.otti hiding it completely, in a moment pla cing his hand under tne cloth tie drew out the net quite united and disentangled, ile took a long straight sharp sword, muttered s nne words to lumseii, w hilt- he sprinkled the dust upon the cioth, and put some upon livs loreheau, then pulled uli and threw the covering, and plunged tiie sword suddenly into the basket prepared as in some degree we were lor this and knowing that it was only a deception it was yet impossi ble to see it vi ithuut a cold creeping horror.— The quiet and energy with which tie repeated his sirokts driving the sword through and through tlie basket, while the other jugglers look on apparently as much interested as our selves, were very dramatic and effective.— Slopjung alter he had riddled the basket, he again si attuned dust upon its lop, lilted its ltd, took up the basket from the ground, showed it to us empty and threw it away. At the same moment we saw tlie woman approaching us from a clump ol trees, at a distance ol at least 50 or 60 feet.

H.Stephens, of Georgia, in an address at a meeting in Alexandria, for tr.t benefit of the Orphan Assvlumarid Free school, of that city, related the following anecdote. "A poor little hoy in a cold night, with nc home or roof to shelter his head, no paternal or maternal guardian or guide to protect or direcl him on his way, reached at nightfall the tioust .of a rich planter, who took him in, ted, lodged, and sent him on his way with a blessing. Tho.-t kind attentions cheered his heart and inspired him with fresh courage to battle with the ob stacles of life. Years rolled rouna : Provide net led him on, ana he had reached the legal profes sion ; his host had died the cormorants thai prey on the substance of man had formed a con spiracy to get from the widow her estates.

The X. Y. Day Rook has the following para graph in regard to a very interesting question A tnong other profound subjects discussed by the association for the advancement of science, ! at Providence, Rhode Island, was the question whether a man may marry his cousin.— Some fearful examples in the deformity of pos terity were cited fo prove that such near rela tions should not intermarry. Instances of blind ness, clubfeet, &.C., tvere mentioned. ..The/Ro man Catholic and Episcopal Churches both-ifor i hid such marriages: but in the face of srfen tific and ecclesiastical authority we ask what will the objectors to the marriage of cousins d with (hose cases where children the result ol such marriages are more than usually beautiiu ' arid .intelligent; We explain the matter in this ; way.; Children sometimes inherit their menta awf physical organization frcyjjufijeir mothers, and sometimes fraTfi their fathers.' If two cou sin*, w4*i ijfttiv-iw'j-it their- roustitultons fru/r same side, unite in matrimony, the conse quences v. -.it i u , mpst disastrous: hut if cousins marry who are entirely ilisirhiiar, one. ha vine inherited a consitntion from tile father and othei j from Ilie mother, no such result will follow. I is the uniting of similar organizations, no mat ter whether first or second cousins, that cause; the injury to offspring, and not Lire simple tact ■ of legal relationship. iloc !(> I)(t litippj. I will give vou two or three good rule: which rre.v help vou to become happier than anv one would be without knowing th-m ; hut as to being completely happy, that you can , never he til! you get to Heaven. Tlip first is "try your best to make others happy." "1 never was happy," said a cer i tain icing, "till I began to take pleasure in the welfare of iiiv beople : but ever since then, in { the darkest day, I have had sunshine in my heart." I My second rule is. "Re content vitb little." There are maiiv good reasons for this rule.— We deserve but little, we require but little, and "better is little, with the tear ojGod, than • great treasures and trouble therew ijh." Two men were determined to be rich, Cut they set about it in riiiierent ways, for the one strove to raise up Iris means to his desirrs while the other did his best to bring down Aiis desires to iiis means. The result was, the one who cov eted much was always repining, while he who desired hut little was always coftented. Mv third rule is, "Look on t/e sunny side ol ! things." | I.ook up with hopeful eyes, Though all things seem f/lorn: i The sun ttiat sets to-night fill roe Again to-morrow morn.

Ladies com plain that gentlemen pass them by in the streets unnoticed, when, in fact, the fault arises from their own breach of politeness. It is their duty to do the amiably first, for its a privilege which ladies enjoy of choosing their own associates or acquaintances. No gentleman likes to risk the being cut in the streets by a lady through a premature salute. Too many ladies, it would seem "don't know their trade' of politeness.— Meeting ladies in the streets whom one has oc casionally met in company, they seldom bow un less he bow 3 first, and when a gentleman never departs from the rule of good-breedirig, except occasionally byway of experiment, his acquain tances do uot multiply, but he stands probably charged with rudeness. The rule is plain. A ladv must be civil toa gentleman in whose corn company she is causualiy brought; but a gentle man is not upon this to presume ujion acqain tanceship the first time he afterwards meets her in the street. If it be her will,she gives some token of recognition, when the gentleman may bow: otherwise, he must pass on, and consider himself a stranger. . No lady need hesitate to bow to a gentleman, for he will promptly and politely answer even if he has forgotton his fair saluto. None but a brute can do otherwise— should he pass on rudely, his character id declar ed, and there is a cheap riddance. Politeness, or good-breeding, is like law—"the reason of things. JrsT ONE SHADE GREENER.—A lady of this city—whin young, a great belle —shopping one iky, callei for aoute st'lc m piece was produced—that would not do : another, anoth .-, vi nit y#t another, was bronglit for til by the salesman, but of no avail ; none there among the ample pile that suited the fastidious lady's taste. >• "A deep, very deep and dark green is what I wish," said the fair customer. The shelves were then again ransacked bv the attentive attendant—deeper and still deeper glowed the green, until it emerged into a dark sea tint, but none had been displayed suiting the lady's fancy. At length, fairly out of pa tience with his customer, the irritated salesman exclaimed. "Madam, I do declare, and verily believe, that v MI uo not know what shade of green you want yourself." "1 t:o, sir, right well," returned the fair, fas tidious. and witty one : "select a pattern just one shade greener than yourself, and I'll take it at once." often are we disappointed in our hopes of having sweet hams during the sum mer ? After carefully cuiing and smoking, and then sowing them up in bags, and white washing them, we find that either the flv has commenced a family in our hains, or that the choice paits round the bone are lained, and the whole spoiled. Now, this can be easily avoided bv packing them in pulverized charcoal. No matter how hot the weather, nor how thick the llies, hams will keep sweet. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS.—We were shown a day or two since three counterfeit notes, of the denomination of two dollars, on the Far mers' Bank of Delaware, at Wilmington.—The plates are so exceedingly well executed, and exactly like the genuine, that it would take a keen eve to detect the fraud. But those who take the trouble to examine may guard against Joss by observing the name of the teller. It is "C. C. Torbert" on the counterfeit, whereas thegenuine bears the signature of our friend W. W. Torbert, who resigned the situationof teller in the bank some time since. The signa ture oj D. C. \\ ilson is also distinguishable from that of the counterfeit. These fraudulent notes are dated March 1, ISSI, while we are informed the Bank issued no $2 notes in March of 1851. The counterfeits we saw were de tected by R. R. Robinson & Co., in a large package of notes he had received fiom Phila delphia. It will be well for all to examine the 5>2 notes on ttiis Bank for several months to come, as we doubt not there are many of them in circulation at a distance, and some of them will gradually find their way to this city, to be edeetned before the fraud is detected.—R. D. Hicks, Esq., Cashier of the Farmers' Bank says n a published card they were presented at the counter on Saturday morning.— Wilmington Journul.
