I Dion ConereMlonal Convention In the Sixtli district—Nomination ofColouel TV. S. Kaukln. The Cincinnati Gazette of the 12th con tains the proceedings of the Republican Union Congressional Convention of the Sixth Kentucky District, held at Covington on the day previous. The Convention was a large and enthusiastic one, every county in tbc District being represented. Colonel M, M. Benton, of Kenton, presided with a goodly number of Vice Presidents and Secretaries. Colonel Benton on taking the chair made an able speech. In speaking of the traitor Breckinridge, he said, ‘'Benedict Arnold had more excuse for turning traitor compared with Breckinridge, for he expected promo tion and Immediate advantage therefrom, but this modern traitor had been favored and fostered all his Ilto by his native State. And now, though an alien and a traitor, a fugitive from his own land—a double traitor, a trai tor against the Government of the United States and against his own State. And yet he has now more power in tbc Democratic party of the State than any other man in it; and though he dure not show bis face in the country, though not permitted to pollute its soil with his pesti lential presence, bis name Is still to be rung throughout the land, and be glorified in your midst; was there ever greater audacity or outrage? Docs it not make every man 4 ? blood run hot to hear such a man applauded, a man who Is responsible for the murder of thousands ot our citizens—a work that has not yet entirely ceased, for over in Bovlc and other counties a Union man dare not open hi? mouth for fear some assassin will murder him. Although thev undertake to glorify and make the rebellion respectable, the time is fast coming when the names ol Breckinridge and others like him, will be linked together with those of Arnold and Judas Iscariot. ibe Committee on Resolutions reported as fol lows : The Convention of Union men of the Sixth Con* gresstonal District of Kentucky— 1. Do hereby ratify and approve the resolutions adopted at the CoovecUon which assembled In Frankfort on the 26th of February, ISu?, and also the nominations made thereby, and pledge our selves to use all honorable m* ans within our pow er to promote the principles enunciated in loose resolutions, and the election of the candidates sdecied as our standard-bearers in this State. 2. Wo declare our lull accord and sympathy with the organization of the great Union Repub lican party ol Ibe country, and we propose to la bor for the promotion aad success of the princi ples, men and mi as arts of that organization, rvcognizing it as embracing tbe true and patriotic men of tbe country, who npbcld and sustained the Government against tbe struggles ol rebels for its overthrow, and who alone can save it from the still more msluious machinations of the nnregen erate Democracy ol the present time, having the same ved in view which they Called to accomplish by force of arms 3. We folly and heartily endorse and approve the measures and policy of the Thirty-ulnto Con gress, believing tbe same to be wise. Just, hu mane and patriotic, and in our opinion congress could not have done less and discharged its doty. These resolutions were adopted, speeches were made by Colonel Nison, M. V. Dally, J. W. Reed and Colonel Finnel. A ballot was then bad for a candidate for Congress, which resulted as follows : Col onel W. S. Rankin, 96; Oliver W. Root, 32. Colonel Rankin was declared unanimously nominated. Cok-nel Rankin returned thanks in an elo quent speech. He said whether the canvass will result in victory or defeat, the future alone can develop; and whether successful or otherwise at the polls, we know our prln ciples si 0 right. Of them I need snot speak: you have announced them for me In ad vance; the Unlcn party of the Stale of Ken tucky announced them In Frankfort, in ad vance ; and the Thirty-ninth Congress has announced them for me lu advance. [Cheer-.] On that platform I stand. If I had the mak ing of the law, I should have made It some what different, but none the more conserva tive, and not leas radical. Ido not mean to say that all who call themselves Conserva- fives arc disloyal, or enemies to tbe Union. There are good men in that party ; they mean well; hut unfortunately they arc be hind the times, fighting dead issues. It is to be hoped they will finally get loose, and catch up. The Chicago) Burlington Sc Quincy Car Shop*. On Tuesday last the people who make up the pretty Utile city of Aurora were thrown into a tip-top state of excitement over a re port that the Chicago. Burlington «fc Qalncy Kallroad Company proposed to remove their car shop* from that place to Chicago. Col onel llawkius had received a letter from Su perintendent Harris, desiring him not to purchase any more land at Aurora for the proposed enlargement of the shop*, a* the company had In view removal. On the following morning a meeting was called nt the Court House, and after several ad dresses, a committee of ten, consisting of Amo* T. Hall, Daniel Volmtlnc, R. C. Mix, E. U. Alien, Geo. W.

Waterman, was appointed lo proceed to Chicago to confer with the company In relation to retaining the railroad shop* In Aurora. The committee visited Chicago on Tuesday and had an interview with the out ccra of the toad. On their return they made no report, but intimated that Messrs. Harris and Walker speak favorably ol the retention of tbe works at Aurora, if they can obtain a suitable amount ofland adjacent their-pres ent property, at reasonable rates, w bile they do not come a* beggars, they will not. on the other hard, submit to the exaction of anything hut a f«lr, .-very «,»-VPri? c for the lands.

COURTSHIP. How ic )n Done lu Germany* Berlin Correfpomlence of the Boston Saturday _ Gazette.) Oh I you American lovers rejoicing in your secret walks, your lonely rides, your escorts *« ,xr evening prayer meetings, those wcll- Cciabiisred rendezvous for lovers: you can indulge in secret sighs, billet dous atd poc try; little do you realize the inconvenience with which a modem German courtship is carried on. There arc no secret Interviews and smuggled letters to msuire the heart ot an amorous German. If he has any thing to say, he says It before any body and everybody who happens to be in the room. If he calls npou the mistress of his sffec'ions, he beholds her quietly' hutting a stocking in the midst of the family circle; und with all this array of spectators must he unbosom his heart and who his bride. By unbosoming his heart, I don’t mean proposing. Unless he can watch a second behind a door in a ball-room, or dude lor an instant the watchful care of the young lady’s guardians, that momentous question, “Will you have me?’* aud its delicious answer, *• Yes, dearest,” will never be whispered between them at all. He must go to palerfdmtl!>u t or some married friend whose affections are doubtless as withered as her features, ai.d make them the mediators. When ail la arranged, the engagement announced, and the romance entirely over, then he can see the lady alone, take her occaslonatlv to the theatre (when he wished to do this before the engagement he must invite also the mother or the aforementioned pitheied relation), and Indulge in a walk once a week. This extreme reserve seems at first glance the moiounnatural, from the fact that Ger mans arc essentially a romantic and poetical people; their literature, their love of music and worship of art show this, no less than the mistaken and romantic attempts at chivalry among the students, and the tender ness and kindness one meets with every where ; their politeness, rough though It sometimes is, and the interest, almost curi osity, which is taken in your affaire. But Germans have to look beyoud mere flirta* tion and love-making. They arc' usually poor, aud must choose a wife as the Vicar of^Wakefield did, “for wear.*’ A flashy, brilliant girl who lacked the usual domestic instruction would never do for them, and a lady who should throw of her reserve and openly accept the attention of gentlemen* would, 11 she succeeded in keeping her character, never win a husband. German meu arc not easily canght by appearances. There arc some sad stories connected with German engagements owing to the excessive poverty of the men, and the necessity for al most every une to work his way from the bottom on be ladder. Frau Dr. S. told me with tears In her eyes, of on elderly lady liv ing near here who has been engaged fltty years. At no time has her lover earned enough t« marry upon, and now both are gray-haired and approaching the grave, and though their hopes ‘of manriage In this life are now over, they keep their vows sacred for another world. There are many such cases, doubtless, where a whole lifetime is one continued struggle between hope and despair, a slruggleonlycndedwith death. The struggle is not always on the part oftte bridegrooms, for there is a custom here appalling to a man with several daugh ters and a small income. In America if a lady consents to deliver np her own precious sell, the sacriflce is considered by the enraptured lover quite snfli efent, hot here, the lady must bring as a dowry, all the furniture, linen and house hold utcneils—in fact, everything necessary to housekeeping. The absolute dismay Of an honest German with eight charming daughters and flve hundred thalers income can easily be conceived where such a cus tom Is in vogue. Perhaps there la one rea son why the mothers do not spend their lives like the English dowagers in constant endeavors to knock their daughters off to the lowest bidder (I fear that the “ lowest bidder” will not be understood by the speculative Yankees); I mean to the man who will take the smallest amount of money with them, for Englishmen never think of taking the Incumbrance of a wife without the jointure. German girls arc not so anxious to get married as ladles are popularly supposed to be. While they live at homo they have comparatively an easy life, and, except in matters of cookery, do little work. But let them once marry, and now aeons change tout ceta. The couple take two small rooms, the lady dees all the work, and the probabilities are that a large Increase of family comes be tore any increase of the income, and conse quently it is a melancholy fact that the whole country impresses one with the idea that the angel or demon (whicheverlt Is) of poverty is hovering over every house,

frightening each family out of Its wits lest It should take it Into its head to drop down upon them in particular. Yon have doubtless heard that a young lady must never take a gentleman’s arm or pass any more time with him than is abso lutely necessary, and can imagine that such reserve tends to produce such constraint and awkwardness on both sides that, when the two sexes are brought together, as at a ball, the effect Is Irresistibly ludicrous. I never passed such a miserable evening In my life as at my first and lost ball in this country. There seemed to be a dumb show of a battle going on, In which the youth ful maidens were surrounded by a body-guard of old maids and aants, who stood ready to repel the attack of the sterner sex. The sterner sex, howaver, seemed by no means inclined to commence au attack, but kept together, solemn and stately, in an opposite corner. When the music began, there was a feeble rush toward the female phalanx, and a few of the boldest * penetrated the lines and bore off a prize. Bat even this seeming success only added to my amusement, for they would come forth one by one, at arm’s length from each other and just touching with the- Ups of the Ungers, os if each one was mortally afraid of catching the measles by contact with his companion. The instant the dance is over the lady must be led back to her mamma and deposited there like a pair of gloves or a piece of furniture. The incon veniences which 1 have herein described are applicable chiefly to a man In love. To one who Is not they become merely national idlosyncraclcs which arcsoon got over. The ladies of Germany I like exceedingly. They are always so ladydlkc and modest, so foil of deep, strong feel ings, so soundly educated, and so intimately kind and considerate. In fact these last qualities are common, so far as I know, to all ladles of th's land, young or old, rich or poor. Politeness ot a peculiar kind and genial nature is an Instinct, and not a for mal ceremony; a real sentiment, and not merely an outward ornament. Tncy actu ally labor to promote one’s happiness, go out of their way to do a favor, and pay yon such continual' and delicate attentions that (such Is man’s depravity) you begin to be annoyed, and wish they would allow yon, even'll you suffer thereby, to rest in peace. The Sbkkipeare .tlonmnent in Central Park* New lork. f From the New York Time?, March 19.1 It will be remembered that on th<y2od of April, two years ago, the corner-stone of a monument to Shakspcarc was laid in the Central Park. At the same time commit tees were appointed to collect subscriptions and select a suitable design for the monu ment. The subscription list, aided by the Krocccdsof theatrical representations given y Mr. Edwin Booth and other artists, now amounts to $20,000 On Saturday evening the committee appointed to select a design met at the house of Ur. Sheppard Gandy. Judge Dalv, Chairman of the committee, presided, and’after the merits of the several designs presented had been fully canvassed, that of Mr. J. Q. A. Ward was selected as the best. The committee will therefore report to that effect at the next meeting of the subscribers to the monument fued. The design of Mr. Ward represents Shaks* pcare la amcditatlveatlitnde. the expression of the face being remarkably line. The Qgurc is about ten feet high, and is replete with vigor in every detail. The design for Ihe monument Itself is very beautiful, but It is not improbable that some portions of it may be altered. It will be executed in bronre. If the subscribers to the fund adopt the committee's report, and will probably be ready in a year from the present date. The site selected for It in the Park is at the south end of the Mall, and is one of tbs finest and most conspicuous positions that coaid have been chosen. The foundation for the monument Las been laid and covered over. htrange Scene in a Theatre# A etrange scene took place on Tuesday night at the HarrUlmrgU (Va.) Theatre dur ing the perfoimancc of the “ Long Strike.’ The audience were cpell bound when It came to the court-scene, and the Judge asked the question, gnillv or not guilty ?
