Yesterday afternoon, as one of the Union Line omnibuses was eoming down the hill leading to the Bridge street bridge, an acci dent occurred, which resulted in Mrs Bibb, wife of Judge Bibb, being seriously injnrei. It appears that some portion of the running gear of the ooach gave way, when one of Uie wheels ome off, and thi whol e weight of the front part of the vehiole coming upon the horses, caused them to descend the bill at qui.e a rap.d gait. Mrs. Bibb beo ame fright ened and imprudently attempted to ju mp out of the coach In doing so, she was thrown violently upon the pavement, and received a severe cut upon her chin, one over the left eve, one of her cheeks badly bruited, and one arm dislocated. Mrs. B. wu immediately taken into the house of Mr Sciivener, and medical assistance sent for. Drs. Bchrer aud Meccall, jr., were soon in attendance, and dressed her wounds; after which she was taken home in a hack ller injurior, though severe, are not considered dangerous. An accident befell the packet boat Con gress, while on her downward trip yesterday evening, which will detain her from making her regular trips for several days. While passing through one of the canal locks she was carelessly ran into by a scow, whioh so seriously damaged her bows as to cause her to si k. She was soon raised again, however, and taken (this morning) to the ship yard of Mr. hasby to be lepaired. She will to ready to resume her regular trips again on Monday next It is suppo ed that the accident was pu*ely the result of carelessness or design upon tbo part of those in charge rf the scow There was a largo number of passengers on board the packet at the time. Th* Sabbath school excursion, returned last evening about 7 o'olock. Not the slightest accident of any kind happened duriDg the day, and all returned highly pleased with the day's exercises, and anxious to make another excursion on boarl the good steamer George Page, Capt Ryther.

Corn, $1 06a$1.08 Spectator. Excha.voixg Wives?Remark ibi.e Trans action at THE Socth ?A late number of the Extern Clarion, published at Paulding. Miss., gives an account of a ?wap negotiated in that vicinity by two of its subscribers, and vouches tor the truth of the story. The chattels which changed owners wore nothing less than the wives of the parties, who were on the eve of emigrating, as tho eventually did, the one tc Al ibama and tho other to Texas The Cla rion refrains from giving the real names of the faithless Benedicts, and calls them '? Oba diah'' and ''Dick," but records the circum stances of the transaction?how they went into the weeds, sat down on a log, and entered upon the business; how they came near spoil ing the trade beciu3eObe's wife was a'young er critter by a dozen year?;'' and how. after much chaffering, the difference was finally equalised by the generous proposal of Dick tj give, in the way of boot, "a eow and calf, two goats, an old gun. and an ox-bell " The respective children of the two mothers re j mained with their respective fathers, and wih their strangely-acquired stepmothers, followed them to the States of their adoption. R >p.birg a Robber?A short time since a stranger in tho ^ity ?as approached by a man cf gtu'.tel appearance who soon made his ac quaintance, and after showing him around the city, introduced him to a company where the bah game was p)aye*1 In a little while the stranger found himself minus about three hundred dollars. Being left without funds he made complaint before a magistrate, and the parties engaged in the game were brought up The desoyer was summoned as a witness, but nothing could be obtained from him to in culpate tho parties While giving his testi mony < ne of his f riends adroitly robbed him of one hundred dollars, bis share of the plun der from tho etranger, notwith&t inding his testimony exculpated them from all guilt It is now said he charges the robbery upon one of his l'riends. and threatens to expose the whole party if bis loss is not made good. It is to be hoped the whole gang will be exposed, so that the proper mear s may be used in bringing them to justice, and break up the disgraceful proceedings ?Bait. Amtriean Massachusetts?Looe at IIer !?The Leg isl&ture which has outraged and dishonored the Old Bay State, once t?s patriotic as any other in the Uni^n, by cettingher in open op position to 'he National Cocs i'ution, is thus spoken of by the Boston Courier : "We basard this opinion, that history will show the Legislature which has just adjourned to have been the most extravagant, the mcst drunken, the most impious, and the most lecherous?arid yet oneof its champions claims for it a ?egiee of purity never before claimed for a Massachusetts Leg s ature, which, until now, has besn above the suspicion of itnpuri cy, under extravagance, and small spreeing at 'he public expense." Is there asv Forgettiho '?Dr. Ruth tells us that when he was called upon to attend on a^ed Swedes on their death-bedg, who for forty, fitly or sixty years hud lost the use of their native tongue, the long-suspended fae u!ty would be recalled in approaching death, and they would ta'k. pray, and sing in Swed ish Dr Johnson, aUo, when it came to bis turn to die. spoke not in the march of his own msjwtic rhetoric?passed by even the cadence of those Latin hymns ia which he once had so much loved to dwell?but was heard, with bn sinking voice, murmuring a child's prayer which he had learned on his mother's knee Strange, indeed, is the providence, and yet so wisely illustrative of the absence of time ss an clement in the divine economy, which thus brings together in mystical association the two extreme points of human history?birth and death ! Episcopal Bishop ?It is said that the first eff rt to procure the consecration of an Epis copal Bishop for New England was made in 1638, cut the scheme was thwarted by the out break of troubles in Scotland. In the revo lution which soon followed the matter was ap parently forgotten. Soon aft-r the restora tion, however, in 1660, the subjact of an Amer ican Bishop was revived, and a patent was ac tualy made out, constituting Dr Alexander Murphy Bishop of Virginia, with a general chargs over the provinces and colonies. This project was defeated by the accession to pow er of the Cabot ministry. WAt Paris, a singular marriage was cele brated in the chapel of the Hotel des Inva lides?that of a Z juave, who lost both feet and hands in the siege of Sebaftopol, with a young woman of some property. The couple were engaged to be married before the Zouave left for Sebastopol; and when be came baok u gloriously mutilated the betrothed declared she wouli keep her word. The marriage was at tended by the governor of the hotel and his suff, and by all the invalids After the cere mony the cross of the legion of honor was presented to the hero, in the name of the em peror, and a valuable present to the bride in the name of the empress. The Zouave has, besides, been admitted to the Hotel des Inva lides, and promoted to the rank of sub lieu tenant. taTThe Bakers of Paris, since flour has be come so dear, mix one part of rice to five parts of flour, and the eeonomy effected reaches the very considerable figure of cne sou in a two pound loaf The government hat had the brea i examined by eompetent persons, and has authorised the sale of it, at a les* rate than fixed by the police In this part of the world this is oothing new.
