We I like the wooing to be done by the mas-1! culine gender, and we must admit that our sense of propriety was somewhat shocks on Saturday at the hearing of ? 1, case before Aid. Ilibbard, in which itl was ciearly proven that a beautiful young J female, not only 44 popped the question. 1 but attempted to supplant a wife in the I affections of her husband The facts of the case are as follows: I It is alleged that a young man, daguer reotypist, recently travelled through I Pennsylvania with his mother and two I sisters, the eldest sister about twenty I years of age, and quite beautiful, and the I youn..est about nine years. Their way I led to a public house in a small village I, in Jefferson couaty, Pennsylvania, kepi I by a very worthy gentleman, the hus-1 baud of a fine looking wom%n, and theL father of an interesting little daughter. I A few days after their arrival, the wit^ I of the travellers were set to work, it is I alleged, to appropriate the snug quarters 11 to themselves, and during several dajTs" absence of the landlord from his home. I the mother of the daguerreotvpist, it is I alleged, by some means or other, induced I the wife of the landlord to elope withl her son. The guilty party, having withl them the child of the faithless wite, hied I to New York, and subsequently cime on I to this city. I The landlord, on his return home, was I greatly alarmed and uneasy at the ab-1 seuce of his wife, the alleged conspirators I having told him that she had merely I' taken a ride with the young man. In 11 the meantime every effort was made by I the mother and daughter to induce thel forsaken husband to forget his wife, and I' cling to the 44 girl left behind her;" but 1 he refused their entreaties, though, at I the same time, he acknowledged that hi I' [only wanted his child, and that thi I mother should never bt; clasped to his I bosom again. The mother and daughter I | finding their schemes unprosperous, made I tracks for this city, and on their arrival. I | sought out the runaways, and stoppe.i I ; at the same hotel with them. The dis-1 consulate husband also came on, and af I ter a diligent search, discovered their I whereabouts. | The wife,; caring of the arrival of tiei I another hotel, and thus saved herself! from arrest at the time the others were I J taken in charge. She was, however, dis-1 i covticd on > aturuay, and taken to thel I alderman's office, and she was about tol be committed to prison, when thp hus I I band requested the officer to take her to I the hotel, and sue tha she was kept in I close confinement. This was done, anal the husband slept in an adjoining room I with the officer, who used his best en-1 deavors to obtain the wife's forgiveness. I He at last relented, ard the same day he I returned to his home with her who haul caused him such anguish and disquietude I The other parties were held to bail for I their appearance whenever wanted, thel landlord of the house at which they art I now residing giving security for them.l notwithsuueiiug iheir indebtedness to I him if quite a laige amount. The whole I case according to the allegation*, exhib-| its one of the coolest efforts to obtain a I gcod home that we have ever seen on 1 ?j^conl : and also shows that this travel-1 family are as devoid of feeling as I KW are of principle.?Phila.

It occurred in St. Lawrencel county, in this State, and is given on I the authority 44 of a gentleman of un-| doubted veracity 44 A young man addicted to intemper-1 ate habits, during one of his periodical I 4 sprees,' took a sudden notion to pay a I visit to his 4 sweetheart.' On the even-1 ing allude! to, the young lady and a| female associate were the only occupants I of the house where she resided. i 44 About ten o'cle>ck in the evening the j*oung man arrived at the house, consid ei ably worse from the use of 4 bever-1 ages.' His strange manner in approach ing the door excited the suspicion of tha young ladies, who supposed the houte was attacked by robbers. He knocked I at the door, and demanded admission ; I bat his voice not being recognized, from I the thickness of his tongue, the ladies I refused to comply with his demand. 44 Determined to force an entrance, he commenced a series of assaults upon the barred and bolted door by kicking and pounding. After a number of desperate kicks the panel of the door gave way, and the leg of the besieger went through the aperture, and was immediately seized by one of the ladies and firmly held, while the other, armed with a saw, com menced the work of amputation ! 44 The grasp was firmly maintained, and the saw vigorously plied, until the leg was completely severed from the body ! 44 With the loss of his leg the intoxi cated wretch fell upon his back, and in that condition lay the remainder of the night. 44 In the mean time the ladies were frightened almost to death. With the dawn of morning the revelation was made that one of the ladies had partici pated in the amputation of the leg of her lover! 44 The wretched man was still alive. His friends were immediately sent for, ; and he was conveyed to his home, where, with proper treatment, he gradually and miraculously recovered, and is now alive and well. 44 We hardly credited," says the editor of th? journal from which we quote, THE WEEKLY STAR I ? ?"**?* vwMr of s?b k* fond In any oftor?to puUidMd am S???e copy, par tan am to curs a. nre copies. w ** Trn do.

" a work of neces si - \ or chanty. The judges were all of .he same opinion. The decision was first, that shaving on Sunday was a work both of necessity and charity. "If shaving, by a barber, or another person on Sunday, said the justices, "is not a work of necessity or charity, then is a person who shaves himself liable, and i ven the cooking of food upon that day is illegal. 1 he exchange of ministers, the celebration of the marriage rite, or the performance of the funeral ceremony might be held as an infringement of the [aw. On the second point, that of seeping open a shop on Sunday for sha ring. the justices decided that the Legis lature never intended to bring such cases before the scope of the law m regard to me infringement of i^unday. One of the justices had some doubts on this last d,nii bur hu gave a Sunday beard the benefit of the doubt, and coincided with his brethren. The barber artist was therefore, discharged, invested with the right of free labor, with razor and sheers seven days in the week.
