LIFE IN MEXICO. Description of an Amateur Bull Figlit at the Capital. Amusements of the Elite of 153x1- can Society. Thrilling Comlalwilh Eight Bulls in the Arena. (From the Mexican Times, January IS.] The great amateur bull light has come off. On tbe 13th instant eight fine ‘mils were suc cessively brought within The ring, and tbo flower of tbe yonth of Mexico displayed their skill and courage before an admiring and fashionable audience. It Is well known ihst the idea of this amateur ball-fight orig inated with Mr. Barron for the l&ndablc pur pose of replenishing tbe coffers of the not pUal dt Pobre*. The attendance was largo and fashionable, for there were at least4,ooo people present, and the elite of Mexican so ciety filled the boxes, presenting a galaxy of beauty and fashion” such as has not been witnessed at the opera during the whole of the season. The performances were an nounced to commence at 3:30 p. m., but as tbe spectators did not begin to assemble un til that hour, It was just lour o’clock when the first boll was let Into the arena. At five minutes to four, the young ladles selected to preside over the performances entered the Alcalde's box, when they were immediately greeted by a spontaneous and Lestev burst ol cheers. First entered Seno rita Concepcion Vlrcarrs, followed by Se noritas Juana Rivas, Antonia B&randlamn, Concepcion del .Moral, Rundero, Luisa Gar cia Conde, and Senor&s Caralh.a Barron dc Escandou and Cayctana Uobio. As soon as these fair ones had taken their seats, the trumpet was sounded from their box, and immediately the performers entered the arena—a gay and picturesque mixture of colors, red cashes, while trowsers. blue lack ers, tufted sombreros, and maolltlas of all the brilliant colors. Gaily walking across the arena, the procession halted In front of the ladies—the “ Queers of the Amphitheatre,” whose vlusomc smiles and graceful bows cheered them on to the sport and gave keen ness to their rivalry. Flist lu the procession came the Estadas or Maladorcs. and the Chnlos, dressed in tight fitting white trow s«rs with blue trimmings, icd sashes, blue jackets and little black caps, and bearing In llu-ir bunds the guv-colured mautlllas that were to lure the bulls upon the sword point; then the plcsdotcs, riding jauntily in their cbajiarreras, fur jackets uud wide spreading sombreros, and carrying lu their hand* the sharp pointed lances that were to defend them and their horses as the bulls rushed madly to the combat, the doomed steels be ing covered wlih Kathcr trapping*; then the gentlemen of the lazn and tnc cola mounted on high mettled prancing Meeds, in all their various costumes; and lastly followed four magnificent chestnut colored horses from •f. c stables of Mr. Banoti, harnessed two abicast, and almost enveloped in a mass of gay housings and the folds of the Mexican dugs which waved from stalls attached to the harness, and mounted by two English Jockeys in the service of Mr. Barron. Checis which descended in a joyous up roaiious flood Irom the crowded tombra and I the well-filled boxes told the satisfaction of 1 the spectators and their anticipation of ex citing sport. At a signal trom'the Queeus, the tiumpctcr behind them blew his hum. the ptcadorr* stationed themselves nrmtuil the arena, with lance poised and foot firm in the stirrup, awaiting the outset. A man drew the bolt from the door, abutting him self behind It as it opened, unit fium the dark passage, tuns opened, the bull rushed forth, springing out with Lead creel and defiant, with tail oulsti etched, looking round fiercely upon the cay chnlos and jaunty picadurcs, ana bounding round nt bis utmost epeed In every direction. Then pausing for u moment, us It to select his ene my, and drawing back a stop or two as be delinatly plowed up the earth with bis feet, flercelv* and with his .full force be rusbed headlong at Luis Rivas, whose lance, firmly grasped, steadily. poised, fell heavily into bis thouldci. A momentary struggle— the cool horseman throwing hi* whole weight and three on to Ins lance—the infuriated bull dashing and charging at the horse wilh might and main—the brule is turned aside and rushes past! Without stepping he made straight fit another pica dorc, asit hoULhl'tO would bury the lull length ot his horm deep into the hoise. But Joa quin Obregou's lance with a steady aim cime down upon him, and again the now fast maddening bull was turned aside. Nothing damned, and as If anxious to measure his strength with each of his enemies, h 6 chaigedQ with apparently irresistible im- | petes at Alberto Rlv&s. But again the lunccanda steady strong aim turned him aside. Then wuh a toss ot his herd, he rushed at the chulos, whose blood-red man tillas attracted Him from the boiscs. Now furiously he ran at this one, then at that,— theu at another, —then at a fourth, keeping Ihe whole menu on the more. Fussing Luis Rivas, he suddenly turned, pawed the cuttii, —then with head down and tall up. made straight at the hold plcadoe, who. standing thinly in his stirrups, grasping lightly his lance, received the furious charge of the brute. Just us ULs horns were about to pierce the doomed horse, the rider onco moieplunged hfs lance (airly Into the shoul der ofhns struggling and lira?** enemy; horse man and steed were saved amid uproarious cheers which rose fium every seal in the spacious amphitheatre. At this moment the trumpet sounded from the box where the Queens looked down upon the mad fury of the bull and the cool courage of the pica dot cs; it was the signal for the bandeiillas to take the field. While his comrades at tracted the hull with the biood red cloths, Buchcll took up his position with the many colored bandcrillas in his lined*, watching the favorable moment to plunge them Into the brute. The opportunity soon came. The bull turned to rush at a red cloth, Bu cbell ran at him obliquely, and placed the himdcrillus firmly in ms neex, os he savage ly tossed his bend and made a dash at the daring joulh; but belbrc he could touch Bucheli. the agony caused by the bandcrillas suddenly brought the maddened beast to a stand. Alter scvcial more had been as smartly placed in his shoulders, again the trumpet sotmdea—to give the signal lor the maladoc to advance, in a moment Corcoles confronted his enemy. He waved his red cloak—the hull rusbed at him; ho jumped aside, passing the cloth over the bull's head, who turned and rushed at him again. As the bull brought his head to the dusk. Corcoles made a lunge at him with bis swoid. It struck too high. The bull rushed off unhurt. A second and third time the encounter was resumed; still the bull was unhurt, though bleeding. The fourth time he rushed upon the matador, tnc sword plunged deep into his shoulder—lt had readied his heart I Staggering and struggling across the arena, as though bewildered at the deafen ing shouts that greeted his slayer, he fell to the ground. The butcher, cla.i in a suit of sombre black, stuck his knife behind the horns, and the first bull was dead. Again the trumpet sounded, and the four gaily caparisoned steeds came prancing in under the lead two English jockeys, the Meric in flags *how unfolding to the breeze as If* la acknowledg ment of the triumph of the bull fighters. Quickly hooking on the dead hull, they dragged him out amidst deafening applause. Then the gentler. cn lighted their cigars and cigarettes, and raised their hats to lady—ac quaintances in the boxes. The ladies smiled and hewed, animated by the same spirit, charmed by tbc same sports, a I looked hap py. joyous and gay. We have not space to describe the fight with each successive bull. Suffice it to say that alt who were in the arena distinguished themselves by their boldness, their coolno s and their skill. Mr- Barron, la the most dashing style, put the banderlllos Into the fifth bull. Luis Rivas killed the second j most skilfully, bringing the bull to the 1 earth, dead on the very spot where he struck him. For this he was awarded the bull's car, which was cut olf and duly presented to him In tbc arena. Feliciano Rodrigucx and Joaqnin Adalld. showed great skill both in tbc lazo and In the cola. Najera distin guished himself with tbc seventh ball in the must gallant style, as also with the lazo and the eota. Lozano mounted tbc fifth bull, de fying all the frantic efforts of the infuriated beast to throw him. The pctformances closed at 0 p. tn., with tbc usual loro cm balado. Tbc whole amphitheatre wus gaily decorated with Mexican Hags and festoons and leaves, and two bauds from opjKisitc divisions of the arena dispensed music to tbc joyous concourse and the infuriated bulls. It was to the liveliest of tunes that the btntcs ended their careers beneath the sword of their conquerors. THE MICHIGAN SOUTHERN RAIL ROAD. Action or the Detroit Board or Trade upon Alleged Oppressive *«atc*—Lrgla latlon Aalccd For. [From the Detroit Advertiser and Tribune, Febru ary 21) 1 At a meeting of the Board of Trade this morning, Mr. F. Lambic offered a beries of resolutions, which were adopted, setting forth that the Board, iu its endeavors to se cure a fair and equitable tariff on the Michi gan Southern & Northern Indiana Railroad, bad constantly met with relusal, neglect or evasion. All other im-atis having been ex hausted to Induce the Directors o? that cor iKirution to give them equal rates with Toledo, as promised to * the stock holders In this city, and granted for seme lime alter the opening of the rout; that the prosperity ofluu city and the into cals of the state have lon-* suffered from the discrimination In favor of Toledo thereby cutting oif our trade with Southern Michigan, and subjecting our tanners, mer chants and grain dealers to such oppressive -rules as to require counter legislation of euch character as to give Immediate relief • and concluding with a request that the orig inal committee apj>olntcd bj the Board re port at once on the subject, so that a bill tuay be pafsed at the presenu session ol tim Legislature that will serve to remove these abuses so long and patiently endured. The committee referred to was appointed several months since, and confuted of Messrs. Moses W. Field. M. Johnson, ¥. I.ambio and £. M. Clark. In ac cordance with the rcqncst made In the resolution, they reported that they had con ferred with the President and Directors of the Southern Railroad with a view to obtain a lair reduction In their tariff upon both inward aud outward bound freigut. They say ttal the tariff rf the Southern Road shows a large discrimination in lavor of Toledo. On every dcsc-lpilon of freight, and on some articles the rates from Detroit ate so high as to prohibit trade entirely with the southern portion of the State. The com mittee therefore Hid that the Board liave just grounds for complaint, ss the exorbitant rates fixed by the Southern Koad have bad the effect to diminhh intercourse aud check traffic with the southern tier of counties discouraging trade and affecting Injurious! ly the business interests of this ciij, os well as the merchants and citizens generally on the line of the road, as they, by the IMberul policy of the Directors in auopTog said tariff have been practically shut out irom thiaciiy) with all the benefits and advantages of a competing market with Toledo and other points. Tire committee say farther that they urg cd a reduction of too tariff as directed by the Board, but failed to obtain any modlu- cation or reduction, either guaemllv or ou specific articles; and although the Directors eould not deny that pledges were made by llio agents of the Board when the stock in the *• Detroit Branch” was taken by the citi zens, that Detroit should in every particular be placed on a fooling equally favorable with iolcao, yet those assurances and pledges have not been ftilfllled. and the tariff to-day shows a large discrimination in favor of the latter terminus, amounting to forty per cent and lilty per cent at several points on all classes or f. eight. With sneu an unequal, unjust and prohibition tariff, onr citizens cannot enjoy the benefit of fair and hcaUhy competition with other points, and it Is im possible, with snch obstacles, for manntac* turers and merchants to extend trade with some of tbc wealthiest and most prosperous portions of tbe Stale. Falling to obtain from the Directors the re dress so Justly and so confidently expected by tbs Board, the committee recommend that a petition bo prepared by the President, setting forth the complaints referred to, and that the same be furnished to Senator Sheley, at Lansing, with a view to obtain snch legis lation as may be necessary to correct exist ing wrongs. ENGLISH MISERY. Horrible Revelation*—A Female Riser Starves Herself to Death. [From tbe London Star, January 29.) During the past week great excitement has ircvailcd in the neighborhood of New Cut, .ambclh, Inconsequence of a well-known ec centric female having been discovered lying dead In a state of Dually in a most wretched, apartment in Harriet street. Lower Marsh, Lambeth. From her singular and penurious habits, notwithstanding the apparent desti tution, she was supposed to have been pos sessed of property; and accordingly Mr. Shep pard, the Coroner’s officer, with a police sergeant, proceeded to search. Tbe body was on a board laid out, but quite naked, merely having a piece of an old nightgown thrown over her. Three black cats belonging to de ceased were at tbe time lying on the body. There was no wearing auparel or furniture m the room, which was In a most filthy and wretched condition, but it appears that the body bad been stripped (robbed) and tbe things sold at a rag shop, from the produce of which, and money believed to have been abstracted from her sta>s. the whole of the inmates of the house, including the landla dy, were supposed to have become in the frightful state ot intoxication in which they were found. With some ditllculty possession was obtained of a book, showing that she was a depositor In the Southwark Savings* Burnt for upwards of £IOO. The deceased wav well known in the southern districts of the mctiopolis, and from her singular attire, cuifclsting of an Immensely large beaver bon* net, ample antiquated cloak, &c., formed during her rounds with a basket containing small tin articles, tapes, &c., an object of smut for gangs of rough boys from whom she had gained the soubriquet of “Jenny the Cuttkluuer,” and by these juveniles she was frequently mobbed aud assailed, which she has sometimes resented with stones with such seventy as to bring her before a police magistrate. She was, however, about eight or nice years since sent to goal lor three months for felony, having been detected in stealing clothing Ircm children. On that occasion a cotsidcrublcsum was found in her slays, a poitlon of which was applied to her support in prison, and the balance banded to tier up* on her discharge, To such extremes did she carry her penurious habits (although a dc; poMtor in the savings’bank for years;, that she bos frequently not only begged for and accepted scraps of food from various parti hut has been known to cat cal’s meat and even scraps she pic edunfromtbe streets. • On Saturday last, Mr. W. Carter, the Coro* •uci for Hast Surrey, held un inquest at the Duke of Sussex, Gibson street, 1-ambctb, on the body of the above deceased, who bore the name of Hannah Henson, stated to be aged seventy-five. Mr. Walter Monday, of Kcnnlnglon road, fiingenu, saw deceased on the Wednesday after her death. Had some previous know!- idgeof her, having received an order from the parish to attend her on Saturday. De cember Ist. Her person was in a very dirty condition, and so was her room. Had made a poriunorfrm examination. Her hair and body were swarming with vermin. He should say the Immediate cause of berdcath was exhaustion arising from want of proper nourishment. OBITUARY.

A correspondent of the AWton says: “ The small remnant of the l ast generation of Ber lin mm ofthc town read lately tho announce ment of the death of Herr Kranzlcr. whose cafe, during the quarter century preceding 1850, was their rendezvous. Situated iu the most frtouented pait of “Untcr den Lin den,’* ana protected, by the standing of its customers, from ail intrusion of lewd fel lows ol the baser sort, Kranzicr’s conditorel was even as fur back us 1820, the favorite re sort of the beaux and wltsof tbe city. Whllo they sipped tbeir coffee or chocolate after dinner, outside Iu summer and behind tbe windows in winter, they discussed till 1830 tbe merits and demerits ol 'Roman Catholic ism and Protestantism. About 1830 literary matters began to supply them absorbing themes ; then a new opera, a new play, or even a new song, or a new ballet dancer, was sufficient to arouse them all. About 1837 it became a la mode to talk of Hegel, and to puzzle one another with ques lions suggested by bis subtle theories. Kranzlcr’s friends hod become weary of this unsubstantial pabulum when ’+B cvtnew.Th its queries and suggestions. After the up "rising in 1848, political discussions were ta booed in open places, so the pleasant corner was resigned to the olllccrs of the guard,who have passed it over to bankers and mer chants. Every now and then some old gen tleman revisits the place, and, as he comes away, speaks with a sneer of the conversa tions be now hears of stock companies and of inventions, of which the old habitues never spoke or knew. Those pleasant re unions arc things of yore, and though many could be found willing to take tbe mantle of him who did so much to make them pleasant, none could wear it now.” MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.

[From tbe Nashville Piers and Times, Februa ry 20. J A telegram was received by Governor Biownlow, yesterday, from Tullahoma, In regard to rebel outrages upon Union citizens in that region. It was presented iu the House of Representatives, and appei rs in our Leg islative proceedings this morning. Since the receipt of this, wc have teamed additional paiticulars of the affair, from the most trust- worthy source, which shows that a very bad state of tilings exists in Franklin and por tions of Lincoln aud Coffee counties. Mr. W. O. Rickman, who sent the despatch from Tiillahomu, is u Union man who has lived for y ears, up to last January,iu Bedford County. At that time be became possessed of some property in Franklin Countv, ami went to live upon a farm there. In this and portions of tho adjoining counties, there are regularly organized bands of rebels, who sw ear that they will drive out all Union men, ] whip the loyal militia, etc. Night before ; lasi a number of them went to Mr. Hickman's Louse ami demanded admittance. Upon bis opening the door, they commenced firing upon Llm with their revolvers. Having a Henry rifle, however, and being a man of the coolest courage, he returned the fire, and. It Is supposed, wounded at least one of the party. They rctrcJfttd. but sooa returned with a reinforcement, ami attempt ed the same thing once more, but finding the fire of the rifle too bot.thcy fell back to the smoke-house, and taking cover behind it, continued to fire at the windows. Soon they set the smoke-house on flic, with the inten tion to bum the dwelling. This, however, cid not succeed, and they finally went off swearing to kill Rickman and others. The Union men ol the neighborhood got togeth er and proceeded to Tullahoma for safety, where they still remain. The evidence is unmistakable that Ibis blood} band of outlaws is scattered over a large extent of country lu the counties named, and that they aic determined to let no Union man live in that section of the State, os no cause in the world exists for this fiendish spirit toward Mr. Rickman and others, except that they are loyal to their couutiy and Us flag. A IDao tlancerouMly Scabbed by a Woman. {From *he Utica (N. Y,i Ue>ald, February 10.] Schuyler Corners, Herkimer County, was the scene, yesterday morning, of an attempt at murder, so cool and daring that not only actual witnesses to the cool*blooded deed, but to all whom it has been related, shudder and recoil. The names of the principals In the affair, we understand to be, Asaph Mather and the wile of Mr. Hiram Sherman. It appears that a difficulty of lung standing has existed be tween Mather ana Sherman. Indeed, Sher man once endeavored, although unsuccess fully, to procure the Indictment ot Mather tot alleged Improper intimacy with bis (Sherman's) wife. Indignities, also, have been from time to time heaped upon Mather. Although we do not understand that ho affirmed what be thought as to their source, still be bad his suspicions. The 111 frelrng between the parties culminated yesterday morning In Mather's being seriously wounded byaplstolshol fired by Mrs. Sherman.- The tragic affair occurred between 11 and 13 a. m. At that time Mather was standing upon tbc sidewalk, opposite the hotel of the place, engaged in conversation with a man who stood Tn a store door. While he was thus talking, Mrs. Sherman was seen to come out of tbc hotel, cross the road, ad vance to within two or three feet of Mather, whose back was turned to her, draw a pistol from beneath her cloak, and, taking deliber ate aim, to lire—the shot taking effect in Mather's back, between the shoulder blades. Mather uttered no cry, but threw up his arms and started os II to go away. Without warning, and before the Infuriated woman could bo seized, she fired another shot, but the ball fortunately missed its mark. The noise, of course, brought oat the people in force. The woman, and her husband who watched the operations from the hotel steps, were arrested. When arrested the woman, evidently referring to her husband, repeated several times, 44 Ho told mo to do it." A Neat Satire. Old General Crandsll, In his paper, tho Champaign Union, gets off the following nest satire on the personal controversies of some of the newspapers of his neighborhood: Our readers arc aware that a discussion has been going on for the post month bo tween our paper and tho 2loming Grade on the subject of the weather In Jauuary. As we ate now about to bring It to a conclusion, we will, with our usual Impartiality, present a brief summary of tho arguments on both sides. On Monday last tho OraeU came out with this extraordinary assertion: “The 1 weather la generally cold In January!” 1 Whether this egregious falsehood originated In tho preposterous Ignrvianco of tho booby who mis conducts the Orade t or In his noto rious contempt of veracltv, we leave it to our readers to determine. Be that as It may, we Immediately set the Grade right In our paper of Tuesday, by stating the tael that the weather la uldom cold In January. The Ororfe, with Its usual Intemperate vio lence, zesponded that the weather Ift dwayt cold in January 1 To which we, of cournc, replied that the weather la never cold la Jau uary. Will our readers beUevt It! Ycilcr day, stubbornly resisting all conviction, and purging deeper and deeper In the mire of ignorance and duplicity, the Oracle had the assurance to allege that the weather U as cold os u cucumber In January I We have omitted the iier-onallUcs and vi tuperations with which tbe Oracle has loaded us In the course of this controversy. We dis dain to recriminate. We consider all person alities beneath a gentleman ; and wrapt up in silence, we only smile at the abuse of this imbecile idiot, this sneak ing buffoon, this thilce sodden dunce, this demon In human shape—we mean In a shape Intended to be human— this red balrcd, blear-eyed, hump-backed, bandy-legged, bottle-nosed, long-eared don key : Ibis channtlng cherub, this Slug Sing singing-bird, this bank hireling, this kitchen cabinet scullion, this shirt less ruffian, this drinking, lying, swear ing, gambling, thieving, libidinous, murdering son of a gun, this walking corruption, this thrico-cowsklnned-and-nlno ty-ninc-times-kicked poltroon, this bought and sold Judas Iscariot—this—ln short—tola editor of tbe Oracle. Once for all, to pat an end to the controversy, we assure the Oracle point blank, and to his niter confusion, that the weather In January la as hot as Vesu vius. fflilwankee, LaCitxw anil Worth west ern Commerce, [From the LaCrosee (Wia ) Republican, Feb. 19.] The little ciiy of La Crosse Is carrying on a wsr In tbe LegleUtore similar to tbe peanut war waged by Erie a lew yv**a since. It will be re membered that Erie desired all the railroad pas sengers between the West and New York to change cars there and refresh themselves at the peanut at.d candy stands erected for their accommodation.

Some of ourMilwankc.- friends seem to be extremely sensitive about ”tbe peanut trade;” and, for the sake of harmony, wo I doubt not LaCrosee would be willing to sur- I rendi r the entire monopoly of the “ peanut” I business to Milwaukee, provided that the “Metropolis” can develop the business com fortable, without requiring the Legislature of Wisconsin lo donate a subsidy or a land grant, and mlssppropriatlug aid by { u&ing it to boleier up the Milwaukee and Grand Haven Ferry, or obstructing the navi- I gallon of the Mississippi by too many rail- road bridges.

The policy ol Ml'waukeo seem*|to de mand the interruption of tuc great natural commercial highway for the benefit of the less cllieient and more expen sive artificial avenues of commerce; Mil waukee has made war upon neatly every prominent Interest in the Slate, lor the ben efit of a few greedy sharks who would sacri fice that city, in order to carry out the huge schemes that have been concocted to burden the Industry and commerce of the North west by a monopoly in railroads and eleva tors. Every farmer In Western Wisconsin and Minnesota und Northern lowa, knows U at the Illinois Central Railroad and the C hicago Galena Railroad, and the Kuciuo & Mississippi Railroad have been the chief barriers against cruel extortion and unlair discrimination iu regard to freights between the Upper Mississippi and the three great mnikels ol Chicago us head centre, St. Louis at tbc South, und Milwaukee at the North. To close up and exterminate this relief to the pepule ol the Northwest seems to be the object of the railroad und grain elevator sharks who arc now attempting to override the Legislature of Wisconsin hy means of a powerful, hut mercenary lobby, from the city of Milwaukee. Be assured, gentlemen, there is a larger interest at slake than the ” pea nut trade.” Death of tbc Last ilcTolatlouary Pen* klvncr. Samuel Downing, tbc last Revolutionary soldier who had u p ace on the {tension rolls ol the nation in exact conformity with the statute, died at Edinburgh, Saratoga County, j N. Y., on Monday. Hu was a native of Now Hampshire, and wc believe, about 107 years I of age. Pensions have recently been granted | to two vcLcrablc men who were in the service I during the war for Independence, one of whom is a resident of Ohio. Neither of them, however, came under the strict letter of the law, being either incapable of proving their enlistment or having served less than the period which entitled them to aid from the Government. Congress, nevertheless, very projurly Interfered, a short time since, to i tovirte support lor (heir closing days. At the outbreak of tbc rebellion there weicu few pensioners living at the South, of whom nothing has since been beard. One or two ol these may possibly survive, though it Is hardly probable. A blind veteran uf 110, who has never bccu pensioned, is said to be yet I’ning with his descendants on Prince Edward’s Island, m lint British Provinces. ILc story, however, needs vui Ideation. It may be pretty safely arsumed, tncrcforc, that ail the genuine soldiers of the Revolution sleep in i heir graves. Indeed, searcclyjooc who bad done much flgnllng in the eight ytars* struggle was permittecd to sec the close of the greater struggle through which the country bus just passed. Nor was this surpiislug. The wonder is that so many of the veterans reached such advanced age. Onr independence was ac knowledged hy great Britain in ITS3—eighty* foui years ag<». There had been very little fighting for eighteen mouths previous; tbc sunender of Cornwallis in October ITSI, being the virtual end ol the war. A boy of sixteen, who witnessed the fall of Torktown, would, il now living, be shout 103 years old, and iu 17T5, when the nattle of Bunker Hill was Icvgbl, would have been a child of ten. If the dtscetidanis of the Revolutionary heroes attrln tic average longevity of their valiant grandfathers, America will be a pro fitable held lor life insurance companies. The *‘la*t war,” or the ‘Mate war with Great Biiiain,” us the contest oflSßMahos hem popularly called, has many suivlvbig combatants. But it, too, is fast receding lo r o tbc distant past. Fifty-two years have elapsed since rhe closing tattle ol New Or leans. In a little mere than nine years, free America will complete the first century of her existence ; and, amid the peace and pr s perity which, we trust, will reign through out her territory, will the deeds of the soldicis ol our three great wars be gratefully remembered.

It is now some twenty years since, after spending my Christmas Holidays with the old folks down In Jfortbshlre, I found myself one fine mon.lng In early January at pur nearest railway station waiting the arrival of the train that was to bear me back to don and business. Soon It came In sigh Land the cheery face of our old servant, Bob. transformed-through the influence of my father (who was a large shareholder In the liue)into chief guard, was thrust out of the window of the break carriage, giving me an assurance of having a pleasant companion during my journey to town. The train became “express” after passing our sta tion, so nothing occurred to disturb Bob and myself, as we sat In his box smoking, until the whistle called my companion to his break as we neared Klrton Bridge, some thirty miles on the. road. Here two ladies were waiting our ‘arrival. The younger, a lively girl of seventeen, was, with many cautious and solemn injunctions on the part oi her elderly companion, consigned to Bob’s special care and keeping for delivery in due course to whomsoever might be in walling to receive ber at Htxton, a station twenty miles nearer London. Bob was well known on tnc lino as a steady, civil fellow, to whom dam ageable articles, whether in brown paper or pcltico&ts, might be safely entrusted; and the balt-crowu slipped into his all-uncon scious palm, noticed by no one but myself and the hungry, jcalous-eyed porter, who had hoped for, but did not receive, ft ** tip” tor his assistance, wonld not be lost on an old serving man if his fidelity ever came to be put to the test. Up to this moment the sky had been clear, the air crisp and Invig orating, and nothing had indicated any untoward incident on our southward course, though It puzzled Bob to account for the non appearance of the London down train, that should have passed us soon oftcr wc had quitted Klrton Bridge. Lookin'; out to dis cover any signs of Its approach, Bob drew his head lu again, with “Change in the weather. Master Arthur (he had alwavs call- ed me Matter Arthur, and would now, poor fellow, 1 suppose, If he could cull me any* thing.) Snow yonder, sir,” he said, po'nt* Ing to the hills* in a wcsteily direction, that were rapidly bid from us by the coming storm. Hardly had be spoken when the sun disappeared behind the driving clouds, and first slowly, then faster and faster, the snow was nnun us in right earnest. “ Kcrainuß me, Boh, of school days,” I said, looking out at the wintrv sight, “when the mail was snowed up, and wc got an extra fortnight at home Inconsequence.” “Ah, Master Arthur, there’s no extra holidays for snow now,” he said, shaking his held os though he suspected me of wishing that trains were ns amenable to weather as stage couches. “Slow pace this,” ho added, rising aud looking out; “not abort of water surely ? Why, 1 declare. Master Arthur, ’/« fAr snow after all, my late say* hi}; notwithstanding. I'm blessed if It ain’t thick, and drilling, too, across this open to the westward as though ’twould bury you and me, and tralu and ail, before we reach Bortou, let alone llcxton, whcic we stop In good-rights, Master Ar thur.” It was evident that the snow had commenced falling in these regions long be* fore we bud encountered it: litre it was, in deed, fulling and drifting with pitiless sever ity, and though our engine putted and pant ed and labored, ourprocrcss become slower ami slower until Just wilhiu sight of tho lit-' tie shanty dignified with tho title of Bortou Station, we finally stuck fast. The second i class passengers—the young lady I i have, mentioned was the only occu pant of the first-class carriage—became Loth alarmed and Impatient- Bob, the sec ond cuord. myself, and the engine men were assailed on all hands with inquiries as to the cause of the stoppage aud the probability ut overcoming It, the uproar ending at last m the whole of tha company quitting the train and making pell-mell for shelter into the little station. “ Hadn't we better look after tho young lady. Bob, before she's quite burled?” I said, as my fncud rejoined me after assuring the excited crowd at the station that some how from somewhere a mythical “pilot” would come to thiii rescue, and that they would escape with a few hours’ detention at the m> st. Bob, dapped bis hand to his bead, as though a sudden sense of responsibility bad perplexed h>m. and then we two commenced wilding through the rapidly deepening snow to the train again. When we reached the coni| artnu-nt iu which Bob’s fair charge was seated, wo found her lookloga littleanxlous. I) perhaps out of the window, but scarcely coiscious of the real state of affairs. Being alone, she had not been influenced by the panic that had seized the other passengers. “Snowed up, Miss; sorry to say can’t go no further. Miss,” said Bob, as he opened the door. The young girl started and seemed for a moment hardly to realize the condition of matters, whilst she waited for further instructions from the guard. Bob hesitated what to suggest, and as If to gain time, introduced me as 1 stood rapidly turn ing into a snow-man on the line. “Master Arthur, miss p old master’s son, mbs,” said Bob. and the young lady bowed graciously, whilst I en deavored to look gentlemanly and digni fied, and failed utterly. I saw, however, that our young friend conlo discern the iudt crous side of the situation as well as its grav ity. as with a pleasant smile she inquired, “Well, guard, what am Ito do then?” ad dressing us both at oucc by ber look, as though in many couuicllors she might And safelv. “Suppose we were to carry you, Miss, tLis wise,” said Bob, taking a cushion off the scat and placmg his arms crossways, while he made a feint ol clasping mine in tike fashion. The Improvised chair was soon ad justed, the yonnp lady seated between us, and as well protected as circumstances would admit, was duly conveyed to the station. The sight that there presented itself, how ever, .was altogether the reverse of reas surirg. and I saw the young girl shrink back as she was suddenly introduced into the strange company. The sta tion itself was a mere hut, where but one train each way stopped daily to accom modate any chance passenger to and from the scattered hamlets that surrounded it. The only other buildings in sight were a couple of single-roomed cottages of the pooicst class—the one inhabited by the rail wav porter who had charge of the station, and his wife; the other by a laborer’s family. Already some attempts to ameliorate the hardships of their lot had been made by the snow-bound passengers. A store of firewood had oecn ransacked, and In spite of the protests of its owner, a bonfitc had been lighted immediately in the rear of the station, round which a group of male passengers stood, essaying to warm their frost-bitten extremities; while as many as could had crammed them selves Into the cottages, and stood drinking, at pilces worthy of a Swindon Teslannsieur y a dirty-colored liquid that passed for tea, of which several quarts bad been brewed from the modest store of groceries laid in by the venders. In the station were seated the : more provident of the company imbibing strong spirits from physic bottles, dissecting and devoitsiiigpork-uics—the fumes of tobac co everywhere mingling with their indigesti ble diet. For the most part they were decent sort of folk enough, hut disposed—as the manner is—somewhat too readily to disre gard conventionalities when placed in novel and exceptional situations. To rongh it for anight would to one’s self be but a small mnttcr:but to sec a wtli born, delicate girl subjected to its annoyances and inconveni* cnees, aggravated os they were by the too

liberal potations of one or two of the passen gers. was quite another affair. “ You were going to Hexton, miss, I think,” said the guard, civilly touching his cap. The young ladv tr« going to Hexton. Her mamma livc*d at Borlon-ereen, six miles from Hexton by the turnpike road, but not more than half that dis tance from Barton station : the pony chaise was to meet her at Hexton, as the express stopped there. Was It likely the “pilot’’ she bad heard the passengers speaking about would soon arrive to take them forward? 1 signalled to Bob to tell her the real truth, feeling ashamed to play false with the inno cent, guileless young crerturc: so Bob, with drawing her to a short distance, told her that no effective aid could come for many hours, and there was no help for it but to remain all night in our present comfortless location. I shall not soon forget the look of deter mination that came over her face as she said “Mamma expect me; mamma will be un happy ; I must go to her.” Bob and I look ed at each other, bnt neither face indicated a reasonable method by which the feat of walking three miles through such a storm was to be performed by so young and tender a pedestrian. “J can walk.” she said, “the lane Is shel tered ; I know the road well.” “Can you not go with me?” she said to Bob appealing ly. "Mamma will pay you handsomely for your trouble.” But Bob, true to his post, shock his head with, “Can’t leave the train and passengers, miss; not for no money nor any other consideration either, miss,” he added, with a not ungraceful salute as if to Imply a gallant desire to serve her Irrespec tive of the promised reward. I had felt some hesitation In offering myself as her escort, for I feared to alarm the young girl by a too ready proffer of attention on the part of so hap hazard an acquaintance. When at last I placed my humble services at her disposal, I saw her take a quiet survey , of my face through her veil, os'll to read my I character with her shrewd womanly glance. Then turning to Bob, whose official position gave him a great advantage over roe, “ You said vou knew this gentleman, I think, guard',” she said ; “ may I trust myself to hla care *” “ Lor’ bless you, miss,” said Bob. as though the question was almost an Insult. “ know him ? know Master Arthur? A\e. from his cradle, miss; and if I may say III” he added. “ without offence, we’ve been friends all our lives—leastwise, his life—for that mailer, miss; and if you trust Master Arthur vou trust Bob Martin; and If von trust Bob Martin, you trust* Master Arthur’s father, the very boat master ever I servant had in all NorthahUe» by whose fa- ▼or, in llie manner ol speaking, said Bob hnld» hU pretcnl rrsponslblosllualion.mlsa.” This long speech seemed to satisfy, as It certainly eouicwhalßmazed.tboyonngladjr; bo, timllngln the good faith of guard, pas* eenger, and passenger’s father thus incorpo rated in mv person, she began to prepare herself h r the walk, and wo started Just as the doll light ofa winter’s allcroooa was De- Idc extinguished in darkness. Here and there 1 saw the enoir bad been deposited In the lane In hngo drifts, and In one or two places It wus all but Impassable, so' I began to fear, os the wind rose, and the enow flakes fell again, that whilst our retreat mlcht be cut off' by one drift, our ad-; Tancc might be stopped by another—the lane thus loaning a treacherous cul*ife*sac< Into which wc were to be lured to d^struc- lion. I was grieved to alarm my company ion, bat was obliged at last to point oat the . possible danger of the road. Resting for a moment Iq a sheltered make; we held a council of war. We would atop, one mute attempt to use -the lane, but if that were no longer safe, we must scale the back, ard seek the church-path that ran across the fields nearly parallel with it. It would be tearfully rough travelling upon those open fields, but os a sailor would tar rather encounter the tempest out at sea than upon a lee shore, so It would be wiser for us to be buffeted and beaten rather than run the risk of being bnried alive. Our resolution had soon to be acted on. Just as we approached one hnce drift, and were seeking to circum navigate it, the snow seemed to come down faster thun ever, and a blast of wind catch ing a heap that had been hitherto stayed by some shrubs, hurled it into the lane. Seiz ing my companion's arm, I fairly dragged her up the sloping bank, and pressed on, knee-deep in snow, In the drcctiouof the path. We fortunately found It, and as It ran well above the level of the field, the snow bad left it partially clear, so that our walking was less difficult than we had expected. But as If to prevent our gaining any advantage from this cause, the wind and snow assailed us with redoubled funr. More than once did I doubt the possibility of my frail companion holding out against It. Oar whole strength could hardly prevent us be ing driven off the narrow causeway, while now and then a fiercer whirl would fairly spin us round, and all but carry us off our feet. Way of escape there was none; no shelter nearer than our destination; no choice but to battle It out with the blinding snow and furious wind, or sink down and perish miserably. But It was a biave girl who clung to my arm, and for two mortal hours struggled so steadfastly; not a demonstrative, gushing maiden, made all for flowers and sunshine ; not one, perhaps, who would attract notice in the crowded ball room and be especially noticed for her beauty or her bearing, but ope that would trudge miles to succor a sick child, or It might be one day, watch with peaceful suffcnng patience by a husband's couch of agony. 1 was well pleased, even amidst the real dangers of our position, that Bob's sense of duty had kept him by the train. “ This Is the * lone elm,'” she said at last, as wc passed a solitary tree. “ 'Tis not lar now. atd then” but her voice was duiwned by a hurricane that burst upon us, aud for some moments we bad to cling together without advancing a step. The “ lone elm” swayed to and fro tearfully, now bend’ng almost to the earth, now rising like a struggling giant wrestling with the blast. Suddenly there came a fear lul cras-b, and a huge limb, torn from the trunk, fell not a dozen yards behind us. I instinctively caught my companion In my arms, and then, plunging forward, almost ran Itll the wlud caught us again and whirled us about at Its pleasure. Suddenly, however, a light glimmered from a window at little distance. "0, see the light, 'tis home! homcl" my companion cried. The sight cave ns fresh courage, we gained the gate, dashed np the drive, without cere mony or warning opened the door, aud rushed into the hull. From a parlor came sounds of pleasant voice*, ami odors ol viands hot and cheer* iug to the storm-beaten travellers. My com*, panion crossed the hall rapidly, and In a mo* incut, all st ow-clad as she was, was closed her mother's arms. Two boys, homo from school apparently, and two girls younger than their sitter, came forward to join in greeting “Polly,” for that was the name by which' one and all welcomed her. For a few moments the delight of seeing her sale amongst them aualn—and thclrsurprise, too, fur through some misunderstanding she was not expected till the morrow' — prevented any reference to tho meant by which her arrival had been accomplished, or the nature of her escort. The first greet ing over, Polly remembered her guide, and motioning towaxds the door, discovered me to the assembled group standing awaiting Ibclr recognition. I saw that the lady of the house was at once surprised and not a little tickled at my appearance. As she bowed on Polly’s in troduction, 1 would fain have responded, but us 1 lifted my baud to my hat, It clutched a band of snow, even now thawing under the Influence of a warmer temperature, nud I dreaded Ust I should, by acpartlng one degree from the perpendicular, deposit n portion of it on the handsome carpet. From Polly’s appearance, I knew my own must be remarkable enough, aud I saw that the good manners of the whole party were sorely tested by the strange flguro I cut and the awkwardness of rny poslion. “ Pray enter,” the lady said, at the same time hcrseirstcppu.2 forward to relieve mo ol my snow-welted hat, and directing her eldest son to deposit my cape In the hall. Meantime Miss Polly was sent off with her sisters to charge her wet garments, and as if lo put roc at case, the lady proceeded to ex emme me as tu our adventure. When, as briefly as I could, 1 told her what hud befallen her child, I saw how ha-dly she restrained her emo tion. Then •Polly came in lo be embraced once more, and, in common with the rest of the company, t 5 mil to work with most unronmnlic appetite on the hot cakes and attendant luxuiics needed to restore ani nel vigor to our exhausted systems. So long as 1 bid fair to be but a passing guest, the good lady troubled little about my be longings, but when the suow beating against the windows told that it was likely torea dor rny early departure, however desirable, an impossibility, the can-flit mother began skilfully to investigate the character of ihe stranger thus suddenly thrown upon her hospitality for an indeflaito pe riod. It was not long before she had a v fair knowledge of my family con nections, business, and general mode of life; and then, apparently satisfied, she began to talk on Indiflcrent subjects until bedtime. With many sage reflections on the course of the day’s events, some kindly thoughts of poor Bob passing the night in charge of his train and its troublesome company, and some by no means unkindly ones of the bright eyed, brave-hearted cause of my detention at Borlon-grccn, I fell asleep, to be awak ened at intervals by the fearful howling of the wind and the Coaling ol the stUl falling tnow. All the next day, and the next, and the next, the roads were lm 1-assafcle, and Borlon-grccn was no nearer to {exton for any useful purpose than it would have been It at the Antipodes. Meantime I did my best to bh agreeable. The boys, con fined to the house, were delighted to have an older boy than themselves to share In such anius. ments as could be enjoyed in doors, whilst Polly, with frank simplicity, admitted the pleasure she felt at returning the obligation my services had, as she said, imposed upon her. At length, however* the farmers of the neighborhood being seriously inconvenienced for want of communication with their market town, set their laborers to work to clear the Hex ton road, by which means my captivity was terminated, and I was able to depart. As Hooked back on the events of the past few days, aud reflected on the strange chance that had thus Introduced me so unexpectedly to new and pleasant asso ciations, I could not help wondering whether It was all to end here. Was I to go away and te forgotten by Polly and her mother, and the boys, and the cheerful group with whose pursuits and home-life I had been so closely,though briefly Identified? Of this, at least, 1 was sure, that my discreet hostess would cry quits when I was cnee fairly under way again, and that I need look for no re newal of our friendship on her invitation. But it seemed that to her good nature the debt for services rendered was’ not yet •fully paid. My sister must accept vicari ously the payment of the obligation to me— she must visit Borton-green in'thc spring,and allow them to show their gratitude for my kindness to Polly. Need I say that as soon as I reached Loudon I wrote to my sister a full, true, and particular acconnt of the w hole affair, or that Jenny entered with a girl’s love of romance into the spirit of the adventure—that she accepted the invitation, was charmed with Polly, with Polly’s mam ma, and everybody at Borton-green ; and, shall I say it, most artfully contrived to be Invited again at Christmas, when, of course, alter Polly’s experience, an escort was necessary, and what escort so suitable as her biother t So the ice once broken, the two families were placed on terms ol friendship. and 1 mid many a visit to Borton-green, till its kind and hospitable mistress left that part of the country ; and then,—"But who was the young lady, papa? what was her name ? what became of her ?'* asks by eldest girl, to whom I have been telilrg the story; “where Is she now, papa 7” “ Ask mamma, Polly.” Tlic RioatiUictien or Ucnry IV. (Pant Correspondence of the New Yotk Nation.] The Inhumation of Cardinal Richelieu’s head at the Sorbonnc has not only afforded material fbra great outpouring of penny-a llnc-ing, but has been the occasion of a deal of discussion. In regard to the authenticity, or otherwise, of a pair of moustaches, popu larly believed to be those of Henry IV., and carefully prisoned In a* class case .by an | inhabitant of the highest part of the capital, Montmartre. The researches set on foot for the eluci dation of this question of authenticity has brought to light the curlou* fact that the whiskers of the murdered Klug were really cm olf, just after his burial, by a person who contrived to get access to the crypt of the Cathedral of St. Denis, and were preserved by bis descendants until a very recent pe riod as an heir-loom; that the last of these descendants, a woman, who bad Inherited them ftom her lather, had put them away, folded in a piece of paper, on the top shelf of a press behind a pile of linen; that this woman died a short time ago, and that one of her nephews living In Paris, and who knew of the existence of the famous mous taches, which he had formerly seen In his auul’s possesion, having written to the provincial town where she had resided to ascertain what had become of them, learned that the woman’s heirs, on taking possession of her effects after her death, finding a pack et o) hair stowed away behind the linen, and supposing it to be a *• tender souvenir” of some long defunct ammurtlteol their deceased relative, had piously thrown the sentimental looking packet into the flic- Another HlMorlcai Fable Exploded. Wtll&m Tell Las received his passport —rfcrti by Mr. fi. Darius Gould, il A.— and has pone to loin the penile Pocahontas in the rcploos of historical fable. Mr. Gould, an English antiquarian scholar, who wrote his “Curious Myths of the Middle Ages” to perform “the painful duty.” as he terms it, of dispelling the popular belie! in the stirring slorj of William Tell, Is the man -who pricks the popular bubble. Mr. Gould, utterly disregardful of the proprltiks oi historic tradition* declares that the story of Tell has been repeated, with variations, ever since the eleventh cen tury. The original Tell was a Norso hero, he was a myth of the Faroe Islands, be was an English, a FlnnUn, and a Persian person; la abort, the legendary Swiss Is only a fclat ec- copy. Persia, Iceland, Switzerland and Dm mark put in the strongest claims; and on these different Terslons of the same story. In countries so remote, os well as antecedent m »ate, Mr. Gonld rest# hla theory that Wil liam Tell Is not a historical character. Tlicre*e oud Cora Pearl. [London Correspondence of Uie. Boston Adrer* tl-cr.] Mdlle. Thercse. tbc somewhat pauee singer woo has achieved great popularity by stuping tongs in Paris calcs which other women dislike, complain* in her autobiogra phy that she Is sometimes called “The lUgolboche ol the cafes. 1 ’ Bat Rigolbocho is lorpottcn. Where Is she now? Probably the slave of a procurers—perhaps dead more likely jet In a hospital. The career of these women Is short In all countries. “Laura Bell” caught a young guardsman, became converted, and now, In an exquisite dress, bat with faded beauty and angular features, preaches to men and women with eager con* corn. Yet more, she who was onco the talk of the clubs and the plaything of the boar with one rich sinner after another, has had a greater success even than preaching, for she gets good society to her dinner parties, and talks over human depravity with earls and marquises, and kisses pious countesses on the cheek. And Mrs. Wind* ham, the notorious “Miss‘Willoughby,” has in her way got for the time off the steep do •cline that leads her class to material ruin ; but these are the exceptions. Where will I “Cora Pearl” be five years hence? The I flower ot Louis Napoleon’s aristocracy go to see her as an actress, —though she has not a single requisite for her parts,—hut this will not last. Even a succession of Cora Pearls would not satisfy the kind of curiosity which she has excited, and which grows by what it is fed upon. The flgnra which she so wantonly displays cannot stand the riot of her life, rd she has nothing bat her person that can attract. Look at Mrs. Wiadham now. Cora Pearl, though English in birth, is said to have a good deal of wit, but she is eminently aj! lie du marbre t and is dead to sentiments of shame, pity and remorse. What is to be said of the paternal Government which fos ters such displays, while it rctases to allow a dozen people to meet together for politi cal discussion ? Imperialism conld only live in an atmosphere like this. Vice is its best friend. Cora Pearl and her kind keep men irom thinking, and in the present unbridled licentiousness oi French society we see bat the natural consequences ol a system which starves the mind but ieflaracs the appetites. Ad Inaect that U “Not Particular.” While cockroaches partake largely of tho common articles of diet in the ship's stores, they also rather like books, clothes, boots, soap and corks. They arc also partial to In cilcr matches, and consider the edges of ra zors and amputating knives delicate eating. As to drink these auitnals exhibit the same impartiality. Probably they do prefer wines and spirits, bnt they can, nevertheless, dr.nk beer with relish, aud even suit them selves to circumstances, aud Imbibe water, either pure or mixed with soap ; and if they cannot obtain wine they find la ink a very good substitute. Cockroaches are by no means exempt from the numerous ills that flesh is heir to, and must at times, like hu man epicures and gourmands, suffer dread fully from rheums aud dyspepsia, fur to what else can be attributed their extreme partial itv for medicine ? *“ Every man his own doctor,” seems to bo | • tbelr motto; and lliey appear to attacn no ( more meaning to the word “surgeon” than simply something to cat.

An Irishman’s Wish.—Patrick McQulnn was a baggage master on oue of our rail roads, and attentive to h!s business. A few evenings since, while at his posP, he was ac costed by an excited rcvercud, who, In a rude and boisterous manner, demanded to know the whereabouts of his trunk? Pat, after several times replying to the interroga tory, lost patience, and thus put an ena to the stianger’s troublesome questioning: “ Ocli ! misthcr. I wish, by my sowl, yon were the elephant Instead of the jackass, for thiu yon would always have your trunk underyereye!” The reverend didn’t ask for UU trnnk ft Second time. In the Tear ISC3 a meeting was held In Lebanon, Indiana, ibr the purpose of getting up a supper and lair for the sick and wound ed soldiers. Judge B , being loyal all over, was very active in such matters, and was appointed chairman of the meeting. There was quite a number ofladies present. The business progressed rapidly, and as most of the articles for tho supper were to be donated, the Judge called, la his ludi crous manner, on these present, to know how much they could coutributc. Almost enough was given to complete the arrange ments, when some one suggested that It wonld be necessary to have some milk. “Oh yrs,” said the Judge, rising with great dig nify, "aU 1/oh Indict who give milk will pUa*e rite," It is sufficient to say that there was no tisinc done. A person who was recently called Into coart for the purpose of proving the c ness of a doctor’s hill, was asked by the law yer whether “The doctor did not make sev cial visits after the patient was outoi dan ger?” “No,” replied the witness, “Icon sidered the patient in danger as long as the doctor continued his visits.” A real water cure—Tho chaplaincy on board of a man-of-war.
