[Special Despatch to tbe Chicago Tribune.] TVasiusqtok, D. C., March ~ ACTUAL RECONSTRUCTION INAUGURATED. The scene attending the passage of the Reconstruction Bill In the House was of the most impressive character. It came in at half-past one, and daring its reading the House, which was crowded, and the galleries packed, paid the closest attention to the reading- Mr. Stevens moved Its immediate consideration, when Mr- Eldridge, from the Democratic side, announced that the mem bers on his side wereawarethat the majority could suspend all rules, else he and those around him would expend their whole strength in defeating the measure. Threats from Democrats were frequent to filibuster, but all attempts were firmly put down by the Speaker, after the House had suspended all the rules, as can be done the last three days of the session. The Par liamentary fight was sharp and decisive, and Attracted more attention than anything ol the kind which has transpired in this Con gross. Upon the final rote only Hale, Still well, and Kuykendall, of those elected as Republicans, voted No. Df THE SENATE. The veto was taken np in the Senate at nine o’.clock, when Reverdy Johnson took strong grounds against the President, his speech creating a great sensation. Bucka lew’s reply elicited a second speech from Johnson still stronger in its character, which was received u ith murmurs of satisfaction on all sides. At half-past ten Garrett Davis rose to make a lew remarks, which fact will sufficiently indicate the position of affairs at toat time. To the infinite surprise of every one Garrett Davis spoke but twenty minutes, when the Question was taken, at 10.45, the bill passing .—3B to 10, when Mr- Foster declared it u law u ithout the signature of the President. ANOTHER VETO SttUriED. The veto of the bill regulating the Presi dent’s power of appointment and removal w as taken up In the Senate at half past two, *cd in the House at nine this evening. Ac tion, by each branch, was taken without de bate or opposition. The vote ol the Senate -cn’the measure was S 5 to 11; of the House, 121 _S7." xhc announcement of the passage over the veto was received with applause and ex citement. THE DANHBUPT DILL, as agreed upon in the Conference Commil ,ec—being the Senate hill, with the excep tions heretofore noted, in tne S7th section— •n-as agreed to In tie Honse, at midnight, hy TO to 2L and in the Senate, at noon to-day, hy 21 to 20 The hill went to the President for his signature about dark this evening, mu. roh THE fpsdiso OF comfocsd is TEBEST NOTES. The bill for funding the compound inter .cst notes as agreed to by the Conference Committee and passed by both houses of Congress to-dav, provides for the issue of fifty millions of* temporary loan certificates bearing three per cent interest, principal and interest paynblein lawful money, which may he held by Sational Banks as part of their re-erve: Provided, That two-flfilis of said r'=crve shall at all times be lawful money. TUT TABirr HILL, massed bv tbe Senate this morning, is simply the Wool and Woollen Bill passed by tbe House two days before the close of tbe last session. No action upon It w« required of -tbe House now, and the bill will be laid be ifore the President for bis approval some time to-nlpbt. ETA-TU OF BUSINESS IN CONGRES=. The general business of the session has ad -tanced very rapidly during the last two days but It la probable that both Houses t-ill 'sit ail night- Most of the really im -portant hills will be finished before Monday noon.

Wasiiikotos, March 2. SENATE. The report of the Conference Committee on the hut fixing the rlchtfl of rolunteera in the army of the United States was agreed 1 The hill, as passed, computes the term of scrrice of regular army oUicers from the time they entered the volunteer service.

HOUSE. Turner M. Marquette, mcnber from the State ofNebiasku, took the »ath. Mr. MILLER asked leave to present reso lotions that no State dccUatag to ratify the Constitutional Amendment saonld[have rep. resentailon in Congress ; that the doetrii eeof nniTersal amnesty ought to be discarded by were made to the reso lutions being offered, and . Hr. LeBLOND suggested that they should be made to ap ulv to Massachusetts. ■ , ~ * The SPEAKER stated tbat/tho resolutions involved a question of representation, which required them to bo referred to the Commit tee on Reconstruction. _ „ _ Thcreport of the Committee of Conference on the Indian Appropriation BUI was agreed to. The appropriations are thereby made for the support of the Indian tribes not as a matter of treaty, but as a matter de* pendent altogether on the will ot Congress. The Committee ofConfercccc on the Leg islative Appropriation BUI made a report. The committee agrees on nearly all points in , discussion. A question. arose |s .lo the regu larlty of such a report, the SPEAKER mui tioning one or two precedents, bat the House disagreed to the report, and asked a new Committee of Conference, The House refused to suspend the rules to allow Mr. ALLEY' to Introduce a joint reso lution repealing that clause of tho Tariff Bill which taxes lasting., cloth for shoes, etc., ten per cent. ~ Mr. nfrvrvfi from the Military Com mittee, reported a joint reaolution allowing the contract price of artificial limbs to he paid for disabled Midlers. Passed. Mr. HUBBARD, of Conoecticnt, offered a resolution declaring that if an, officer or contractor shall hereafter make expendi tures in anticipation of appropriations, the Government will not assume the responsi bility therefor. Referred. Mr. DAWES, from the Committee on Elec lions, made ft verbal report In the case of Arnell, of Tennessee, and the committee was discharged from its farther considera tion, as a decision by them or the House could have no practical effect now. He also ollered ft resolution to pay Mr. Thomas, the contestant, SI,OOO pay and mUeage, which was adopted. Mr. ELDRIDGE, in the name of the minor ity, said that he was conscious that no effor t of theirs can prevent, h, the passage of this bill, as they think, a dlsaChutiwu c* Union. They only, la the name of the Re- of all they hold dear, protest against s action of Congress. Mr. STEVENS asked If the gentlemen on the other side were willing that a vote be taken without further delay. Messrs. BOYER and ANCONA“denied that there was any such understanding. The Secretary of the Senate announced the passage of the Honse bill of last session in reference to the tariff on wool. It taxes the best grades 12 cents and the lower erodes 10, with 10 per cent ad valorem. The hill was passed without amendment and goes to live President. The President’s Private Secretary delivered a message in writing, which proved to be a veto of the Military Bill. Tiro 3&ESBAQE. To the Home of Bqiretentatleet: I have examined the bill to provide for a more efficient government of thelate rebel Stales with the care and anxiety which its transcendent Im portance is calculated to awaken- 1 am nnable to give it my assent for reasons eo grav.* lha'l hope the statement of them may have some in fluence on the minds of the patno’le and enlight ened, with whom the decision mast ultimately rest. The bill places all the people of the ten States therein named under the aosolatc donum- I tlon of military rnlcrs, grd the preamble evi dently is lo give the reasons npon which it is Jos tided. it declares that there exists in those States no legal government and adequate protection to life or property, and asserts tnc neces-Jty ol en forcing peace and good order within their limits. It is true, os a matter of tact, and it is not denied, that the States In question have each of them an actual Government, with allthe powers. Executive, Judicial and Legislative, which properly belong to a free Stale. They are organized like the other States of the Union, and Use them they make, ad minister and execute the laws which concern their domestic affaire. An existing de facto Govern ment exercising such functions as the taw of Stare? upon all matters within its juris diction. To prononoce the supreme law-making power of an established State illegal, is to say that law itself is unlawful. The provisions which there Governments have made for the preserva tion of order, the suppression of cri-ne, and the redress ol private injuries, are in substance and principle the same as those which prevail mine Northern States, and In other civilized countries. Tbeycortainlyhave not succeeded In preventing the commission of all crime, nor has this beio accomplished anywhere In the world. There, as Wf 11 sa elsewhere, oSenders sometimes escape forwent ol vigorous prosecution, and occasion ally, perhaps, by the inefficiency of courts or the prejudice of jurors. It Is undonotcdly true tba». these evils have been much aggravated in the South by tue demoralizing influences of civil war, and by file rancorous poisons which ihe contest has engendered* bet, that these people are main taining local governments lor themselves, which habitually defeat the object of all government and render life and property insecure, is in Itself utter ly Improbable, and the averment of the bill to that duct is not supported by any evidence which has come to ray knowledge. All the Infor mation 1 have on the subject convinces me that the races of the southern people and those who control their acts, while they entertain diverse views on onesUonsSof Federal policy, are com pletely united In the effort to reorganize thotf society on tbe basis of peace and restore material orcepeiity as rapidly and completely asilhcir cir cumEtanw>« jwnnti. The bid w°oid. h owo*or, seem to show upon its face mac the establishment of peace and good oreer Is not Its real object. The fifth section aedarcs that the preceding sec tions shall cease to operate in any State where certain events have happened. These are: First. The selection ol delegates to a State Con vention, at an election m which negroes shall be J of a State Constitution bylbe Convention eo formed. , Third, Tbe Insertion into such Constitution of t provision which will secure the i right of vo lag a «li elections ot all negroes, and such while mei may not be disfranchised by rebellion or M ° r &nrtS. The submtolon d Us ratification to nejjroee and 'whites not msrrsn The submission of the Constitution to Copffreee for examination and actual appro' a. of the Constitution by the Legislature elected by adoption of eald amendment by a Efficient number ot other State' to mike it a rart olibc Constitution of the United Stales. r Tu ti!c a e proTh-mns must be filled bciore any ol tbese States can be treed irom the bondaee of miUlairdominion.

The ten States nsmed are divided ten dja trlcts* for each district an officer not be-ow the rank of Brigadier General is to be appointed to mie over the neople. and he is to be supported with sufficient military to enable hjm to perform h!« duties and that authority, as deduct! by the section of the bill, is to protect all persons In Sri?

If be J*es Uivm a trial before be Inflicts the punishment, he gives of his grace and mercy, not because he'ts commanded so to do. seek To a casual reader of the bill. It might seen that some kind of Inal was secured to persons ac\ cased of crime, bat such Is not the case. Thei of\ fleer may locate civil tribunals to try offenders. t*nt of course thla does not require that he phali do so if any State or Federal Court |presam«i: to exercise its legal jurisdiction by trial of n male factor without nla special permission, he can break it up and pnnleh the indges ,and inrors as hung themselves malefactors. He c BT ’ save bis Irtenda from , Jus- i tice and despoil bis enemies, contrary to joitice. Ills also provided that he shall have power to organize military commissions ortribu- j nals Bnt this power Is not commanded to do it, it Is merely a permission, and is to be used only when In bis judgment It may be necessary for the trial o! offenders. Even U sentence pi a com mission were made a prerequisite to Oie mait of a party. It would be scarcely the euebtest check upon the officer who has anlborltyroor canlzeltashe pleases, to appoint its members from his own subordinates, prescribe Hjc rules and revise all Ha decisions. Icsteod of mitiga ting the harshness of his single rale, such* tri banal would be used much more probitriJ to divide the reaponslblllty of making ft »CT®crn?i or unjust. Several provisions dlcmtedby the humanity Of Congress, have been te the bill apparently to restrain the power or the com mftndJng officer, bat It seems to me that they are of no avail for that purpose. Ibe fourth section provides ; 1. That tm’s shall not he unneccfsanly de layed; bnt I think I have shown lh« the power isgiven to pumah without trial, and if so, this provision Is ccureiy Inoperative.

The French Convention armed : Its Deputies with this power, and sent them to the Southern departments of the Republic. Tne massacres, mnrdcrs and ether atrocities which they committed show what the passions of the ablest men In the most civilized society will at tempt to do when wholly unrestrained by law. The men of onr race in every age ha\e • struggled to tic no the bands of their Goyernmen a MdVetp them within the law, because toclrowa experience of all mankind tsnebt them that rtlcn could not be relied on to concede those rigbta which they were not legally bound to The head* of a great TJmplro baa sometimes governed with a rotld and paternal sway, bat So kindness of an Irresponsible rntcr ( ncjcr yields what the law does not j C 3 such s master and people subjugated to his do minion. there can bo nothing ““**“*"**•«% ponhhes them if they reslrt his authority, and u they submit to it he hales them for their scr- T *l txmenow to a question which is, If possible, still more important: Dave we the P°wer to es tablish and carry iDto eiecnUon a meMnrc like this? I answer,certainly not.lf we derive onr authority from the Constitution, and if we ate bound by the llroltatloda which it imposes. This proposition is perfectly clear, ttial no Department of the Federal Government—Executive, Deg'-sla m e or Judicial—ever can have any power except that which it gets under the organized law of the Colon. Outside we have no more than private citizens, and to It wc have only so much as that in etrnment give! ns. The broad principle limits .i> «.>-nr/.iMPiifin We have no right to do in one SSroStSSta MO'-holftmt which thcCon -1 stliuiion says wo shall not do at all. Ki there- I lore, the bontbem States were in truth out of 1 ihia Onion, we could not-treat their people Ito a manner which the fundamental I law forbids. Some person assumes that the sac- I ceesofonrnnns in cmehtog the opposition which was mane ir some States to the cxecation of Fed eral laßfl, reduced these btales and the people, | the innocent as well as the guilty, to a condition 1 of vasaalagc, and gives ns a power over them I which the constitution does not bestow ordeflne I or Limit. No lallacy can be more transparent than ’ this. Onr vlctotles subjected the insurgents to : legal obedience; not to the yoke of any arbitrary despotism. VVTien ao absolute sovereign I reduces his rebellions subjects, be may deal with 1 them according to We pleasure, because he had I ibatpower before; bnt when a limited monarch ‘ put* down a rebellion, be must govern according j fo taw. If an insurrection should take place In 1 our States against the authority of the State Gov- I ermnentanffendin the overthrow of those who 1 planned it, would it lake away the rights of all 1 the people of the countries where is was favored - by a part or a majority of the population? could ■ they for ench a reason bo wholly outlawed and L deprived of their represemaf on In * 1 the legislature? I have always contended that ' the Government of the United Plates was sove r reicn within its consUtntlonsl sphere—that It cxe -1 1 cured its Jaws like the States themselves, by ap * 1 plying Us coercive power directly to Individuals, ' and that It could put down insurrection tbe same ' as a State, and In no other way. Tbe opposite 3 I doctrine is the worst heresy of those who advo -9 care secession, and cannot be agreed to without l * admitting that heresy to be rfgnt. Invasion, in i' I snmcilon. rebellion and domestic vto -1 leccc, were anticipated when toe Govern- Q ment was trained. ana the means of i I repelling and suppressing Ibem were wisely pro ' 1 viced for In the Constitution. But It wan not r I thought necessary to declare that the States In * I which they might occur should be expelled from r I tbo Union. Rebellions, which were invariably suppressed, occmrcd prior to that oat of which I these questions crow, bat the State condoned to I exist, and the Union remaired unbroken. In Massachusetts, in Pennsylvania,!» Rhode Island. I and in New York, at different periods In onr history, violent and armed opposi tion to the United States was carried on l>nt tho relations of those Slates with the Federal Government werenot supposed to be interrupted or chanced after the rebehiems portions of their population were defeated and pat down. It Is true that In these earlier ciaes there was no formal expression of* detcrmlna -1 tion to withdraw from the Union, but 11 is also I true that in tbe Somhern States the ordinances of I secession were treated by all the friends of the Onion aa mere nnllifiee, end are to" _ eckno.l- I tchred to be so by tbe States I tbemrelves. If we admit that Ihey had mv force or validity, or I that they cflrt In met, take tie Stalea in which I they were passed out of the Union,weswep from I under onr feet all the grounds on which we aland, 1 In inslifvtng tbe use of a Federal force to main tain ibe'inu?;TTlty of the United Stales. Thus, a bib Is passed by Congress in lime of ncace. There is not in any one of the plates I brought under lla operation either war or Insnr- I teetton. Tbe laws »f the State and of the Federal I Covernmcst are in undisturbed and harmonious oneraUcm. Tlie Courts. State and Federal, are I oocn ard in the fall exercise of the In- I proper authority. Over every State comprised in I the five military districts, life, liberty and proper* tv are secured bv State laws and Federal laws, and the National IConstitntlon is every- I where in force, everywhere obeyed, I erf What, then. Is tbe gronrd on which this bill I proceeds r Tbe title of the bfll announces that it Is Intended for tbe efflciet.t government of these I states. It is recited by way of preamble that no I legal governments or adequate protection exist In 1 these Mates, and that peace and good ordershotud 1 . _ * i.a Amt itiincr arrests attention ho enforced. 'lheflrelthiag mat arrests aueuuim ; in these recitals, which prepare the way for martial m ,hu—thut the only foundation on which Tnfl Alai law can exist under onr form of govern i meni is not stated orsoronbb aspretendert. Aclu- M war forelen invasion, domestic Insurrections, I none o*t these aC’ Ct and none of these In fact ex -ISf 11« Ml eren redted Ihrt »J sort ct' "-or or Inrorrection is ircßtcncd. 1 Let ns naose here to consider upon this qnes- I tlon of constitutional la*, and the power of con " ns, iSnte secret decision ot the Snoren, C tort of the United Sates la <x parte MllHigii. I i will first quote from the opinion of the majority I of tbe Court; “Martial law cannot arise Irom thre.teoed Invasion. Ttte necessity must fie ac- I tual and Dieicni; the Invasion teal, tnch as to close the conru and depose the civil amhorittls" VTc see that martial law comes In only when actual war closes ihc courts, and drt>oseßCl'll authority. But thU I bill. In time of peace, makes martial law °P«nlc a- tbouchwe were In actual war, and becomes the cause Instead of the couseqnence of the ab rogation of civil authority. One more qnallflca i Son. It foil owe from wbat < bas been said_on this anhiecL that there are occasions when martial law can be properly applied, if in foreign invasion, or SJ SJra* a™ actnadyclosed, and Ills Im- DOK-inleto administer justice according to law, tten, on the theatre of military operations, where I war realiv prevails, there la a _ nec-9- l ?ltv to furnish a substitute for tbe civil authority thus overthrown, to preserve thr Bafetv I of tbe army and society, and as no power is left I hut the military, It Is allowed to govern by mar- I tl*l rule until laws can have their free course. ‘ I i now quote from tho opinion of ibe minority of the Cbu?L delivered by Chief Justice Chase: k 1 We bv no means assert that ConcrcßS tan cstoh -1 iuh and apply the laws of war where no war has 1 I fiuen declared or axiats. Where peace i.fio I laws of peace most prevail.” 3 b’s is sn* 1 ficlentlv explicit. Peace exists in all the * 1 territory to which this bill applies 8 i li asserts a power in Congress in time of peace to ? let aside tS? laire of peace and auhaiW 1 I in vs of war. The minority, concurring with the 1 1 mulorltv. declares that Congress doesXnot possess c I iknower. Again, and 'lf possible more era- Q pnatically, the Chief Justice, with remarkable 9 1 clearness and condensation, sums op 0 1 matter as lollowa; “There are nndcr the Constl ,r 1 milon three kinds of military Jurisdiction,— one l * to bo exci clsed both in peace and in war; another r® I to bo exercised In time o! foreign war. without I the boundaries of tbe Untied States, or m ime oi rebellion and civil war within the fetaicfl of the district occupied by rebels treated os belligerents, and a third, to be exercised in tlmo of invasion or • ?Bsnrewtlon w-ilhln the llmlls of ihe.

Tae Parlla "ippl of England, exerdalng the omnipotence 3!,, £ -Wmed, was accustomed to pass bUls of . that Is to say it would convict men o» and oth er crimes by legtelauvM enactment.' The person accused bad a bearing -amc Hows a patient, fair one, but generally party prevailed, Instead of justice. It often became ne cessary for parliament to acknowledge It* error and reveras its own action. The lathers of onr country determined that no soch thing should occur bere. They withheld the p:.wcr from Con crcss.andthnslorbadclta exercise bythatbody, and they provided In the Constitution that no Slate should paaa any bill of attainder. It Is, therefore. Impossible tor any person In this connlrr to be constlmt lonally convicted or punish ed lot any crime by a lozUltttve proccedlnr of any sort. Nevertheless here is a bill of at tainder against nine millions of people. It is | passed npon an accusation so vague as to be scarcely intelligible, and found to bo true upon no credible evidence. Not one of the nine mil lions was heard in his own defence. The repre sentatives of the doomed parties were excluded from all participation In the trial. The conviction is to be followed by tho most Ignominious pun ishment ever Inflicted on large masses of men. It disfranchises them by hundreds of thousands and degrades them all, even those who are ad mitted to be guilty, from the rank of freemen to the condition of sieves. _ „ •. _ , The pnrpose and object of the bill, the general Intent »Wch prevails from beginning to end. is to change the entire structure and character of the State Governments, and compel them by force to the adoption of organic laws and[regulations which thev aro unwilling to adopt If left to them telves. The neprtKß have not asked for thi prm lece of voting. The vast majority of them hive S Idea of what it means. This bill not only thrusts it Into their hands, but compels (hem, as well as whites, to nsc it In a particular wy. if they do not form a constitution with prescribed articles in it, and afterwards elect a ■ Legislature which will act upon certain measures I m a prescribed way, neither blacks uot; whites can be relieved from the slavery which the bill Im poses upon them. ~ .. ,i - Without pausing bere to consider tho policy or Impolicy of Africanizing the southern part of our territory, X would simply ask the attention of Congress to that roan-fest, well-known ta u uni versally acknowledeadruleof constitutions! law widen declares that tho Federal Government has no jurisdiction, authority or power to regulate sdchanblecisforanySlate. To forcetbe right of sn&sco out of the bands of tho white people and into the hands of negroes is an arbitrary violation ofthls principle. This bill Imposes martial law at once, and its operation will begin ,«o soon as the General and hla troops tan be plated. The dread alternative between Its harsh rule and com pliance with the terms ofthls measure Is not atw trended, nor aro thepeople aflorded any time for free deliberation. The bill eays w them ; “Take martial law first, then deliberate,” and when they have done al? that this measure reqnlres them to do. Other conditions and contingencies over which they have no control yet remain to be tnimied befotc they cau be relieved from martial law. Another Cnncrc-a must first approve the fonstltuttou made In conformity with the will of this Congress, and must declare these States en titled to representation In both Houses. The whole question remains open and unsettled, and must occupy the attention of Congress, and In the meantime the agitation which now prevails will continue to disturb all portions of the people. The bill also denies tbe legality of the Governments of ten Stt'eu which participated la the ratification of the amendment to the Federal Constitution abolish ing riavery forever within the Jurisdiction of the United Slates, and practically excludes them from to? SSIoS IT tbl* Msumplfou of the bill be cor red. their concurrence cannot be considered as hariog been legally given, and too Important fact la mane to appearthattbeconsentof tnreo-foiirlhs of the States, the requisite number, ha» not been constitutionally obtained to the ratification of that amendment, thus leaving the question of slavery where It stood before the amendment was official ly declared to have become a part of the Coneti ,n¥bai the measure proposed by this j the Constltnilon m the particular mentioned, and , in many other ways, is too clear lo admtofthe least donut. It only remains to consider whether the injunctions of tbe Instrument ought to be obeyed or not- 1 think they ought to be obeyed for reasons which 1 will proceed to give a* briefly I aB /n°thefl«tplace,U Is tho only system of free Government which we can hope to have as a na tion. When It ceases to be the rule of onr con duct, we may perhaps take onr choice between complete anarchy, a consolidated monarchy and a total dissolution of toe Union, tint national lib erty, regulated bv law, will have passed beyond onr reach.

Her head was completely enveloped In her dress, and she could not he token away without taking at the same time much of the Ico in which she lav encrasted.lnlcnsc excitement was created by the discovery of the body. Thencws spread like wildflre. “Frank b found!” “Frank is found!” was the cry heard in all dircc lions. and the gratitude of her relatives and tbc gratification of her friends cannot be ex pressed In the “ poor common words of cour tesy.” Strenuous efforts had been made for the recovery of the body. Hundreds of men have worked patiently from day to day. Thousands oftousofice have been cut Into fragments, and moved about by Mud ; and it seems almost miraculous that the body wasdiscovcred.‘‘Mediums” were consnlled, but they failed to designate the place where the body lay. Inferior agencies proved more successful. On Friday morning, after a light fall of enow, some persons discovered, near where the body was found, numerous tracks of cats, and on Investigation it was found that three cats had come to said place Irom three different directions. This obser vation Induced the belief that these cats had scented the body and were In search of it. Suffice it to say that the body was subse quently found within a, few feet of where the rats met, and we shall in the i futurei ftel safer in trusting to the instincts oi felines ihan to the unreliable dictation of spirits of obtuse sensibility and imperfect faculty of tight.

About a. jear non ho received n telegram from the ladJ a confessor, telling him it he wlaheii to see her once more no must not delay, ns she was i» tdremi*. All agree that Victor is kind-hearted, so ho took ft special train for Turin, entered the chamber Ailed with nil the paraphernalia of death, confessor Included— found the lady scarcely able to speak, bnl who contrived to whisper she could not die happv until she made her peace with heaven. This meant marriage. The good-natured king, in know ing that she was dying, consented. They were married. Ue returned to Florence, mourning the loss of the fair Ros sini. In a week after the lady arrived in Florence, blooming In health and beauty, to take her place at the king’s table in the Pittl palace. Here waa u coup d'etat not looked for, but of course, tb at comd not be; so she lives a short distance from the city, in great state. The Caprice of Kortnoe. (Paris Correspondence of the London Star.] I bad neither time nor space yesterday evening to give you the Allowing anecdote, related in La-Pairie, of Lord Gray of Gray, ■whose death has caused so moch regret in the English society of this capital; Lord Gray ■was one evening returning from his when ho perceived the loss of his pocket book containing forty bank notes otl.OOOf. each (1,60«.) Lord Gray searched the pockets of his great coat, but In vain. Ho qnletly returned home. Next. mornwg his servant I went to his room at an e*rlv nour, and In -1 onned him that a lady in deep mourning wished to speatto him. Lord Gray desired that she should be shown In to his dra wing room. “My lord,” said Hls TUltor, “yon diopped your pocket-book comamins 40.00 W; 'I Mae It back to you,” TheyoiM was sweet and low, but so closely was the lady vailed it was impossible to guess her age or appearance. • “Madam,” replied Lord Qrayf “ you have rendered me a service for which. I heartily thank you. Allow me to ask If I may venture to offer you some remembrance of my gratitude. The lady then hesitatingly confessed that she had recently lost her husbatd, ■whose death had left her the charge of three little children, and that so utter was her destitution shehad actually been templed to keep tbe pocket book. Lord Gray returned it to her, merely saying, “You are my creditor—you or your children will repay me later.” Lord Gray received a visitor five years after this scene occurred, who appeared a total stranger to him. It was a lady. She handed him a velvet portmonnaVe, on which his cypher and coronet were embroidered in gold; within lay forty notes of I.OOOf- each. You will allow me to retain the old purse in memory of your munificent generosity, ehe remarked. A Dart* Gift Scheme. The lottery mania ha* extended to the South, and wc now have the announcement of “A Grand Tombola, a scheme by -which Rich and Poor can aid in raising a Fnnd for the aid of Mr. Davis’ Family.” The circular says, among other things: •* We would only ask are you willing be (Davis) should pain fully linger out his days in prison without the consolation of knowing that his family are irovided for ? We are all poor, bnt his *ain ly ig ours. They belong to the whole coun try equally, to tnerich and to the poor, the laborer and the man of ease.” It then pro ceeds to ask for donations of “calico, rib bons, pickles, preserves, toys, mittens, flow ers,” Ac., &c., all to be drawn in a gift scheme. Mias Evans, the authoress of Beu lah, is announced as the Mobile agent. The project is the work of Southern ladies. A Juicy Advertisement. (From the Princeton (Hy.) Democrat] BOABDEBS WANTED. Wanted—two or three boarders of a decent strips, such as go to bed at nine o clock, without a pipe or cigar In their mouth. I wish them to rise in lime to wash their faces and comb their heads before brsakfaat. When they pnt on their boots to draw down their pants over them, and not have , them ramufed about their knees, which Is a sure eign'ofa rowdy. When they sit down to Test or worm by the Are, not to put their feet on the mantel-piece or bureau, nor spit in the bread tray. And to pay their board weekly, monthly or quarterly—as may be agreed upon—with a smile upon their faces, and they will find me os pleasant as an opossum up a persimmon tree. 1 Odd McCalua, New York Town Elections.
