The exhibi tion was highly praiseworthy, and r--fleets credit upon teacher and pupils. '1 he manner of de livery, the coib'ctedness and en:: - .wire with • which the various pieces were performed, would have been credible to some of cur higher institutions of learning.

The particulars of a most romantic case of su icide by poison, in consequence of disappoint ment m love, came to light yesterday afternoon, idie victim a young (1- nnan woman 22 years of ag , residing at No. 21 Rivirigton street, had j b-en deserted bv her lover, ui. se name s!.e j would not reveal, but had endeavored to b ar up ; against the misfortune with true heroi.-m. Car- I oline Jeulich—for such was the name of the un fortunate woman—was beloved bv a voting (Mr | man named Edward Sinister, who proflereci his j hand in marriage, but the recollection of her | la he lover was so firmly impressed upon her 1 mind, that although she received the attentions of Sinister, ami signified a Willingness to h- c-wr.e his bride, still in Secret she pined at the loss of the a: sent lover, and secretly contemplated seli • destriH-t ion. According to Shunter's story h.e has been in | the United States about six tn >nth<, and lad -carcely known the deceased f>r tluee weeks, being a machinist by occupation, he put sn ad , vi-rlisement in one oi the morning papers asking ; Isr a situation. The mc- a.-ui answered to and requested him to call on her. He did so, when she stated that she had been deserted by her lover, who was a machinist also, and that think ing it was him who inserted the advertisement asking for the situation, she was impelled to . answer it '-villi the vague hope of being restored Ito his amis once more. Fiom that time an in- I timacv sprang up between the pair. Sinister declares he loved her at first sight, and ever af ter up to the day of her death.

This is certainly an erroneous idea, and not only er roneous, but injurious and disgraceful. In the incorporation of tanks, f r instance, ! I and p-r- nal interests are alone consulted. There are points in Pennsylvania, where the business ami enterprise of the people require .ing ;i stiloti >ris. These localities are rare, while scores of iher institutions of this kind are asked for mere spechlative purposes.
