Pcnn., n jolly publican. who contributes a good deal to the t'fe of that plea?nnt. hot sometimes very obrti nate borough. One morning, a traveling phrenologist arrived at his iun. and took lodg logs. The next day in the village newspaper appeared an advertisement stating that Prof. I>?? had arrived in Erie, and would make, " for a collide ration." examination of the heads of citizens, and accompany the same with accuratc, reliable charts of character. For two ?>r three days the calls were ?]iane; but on tin* tilth day. there was a rush of five or six to the apartments of the Professor. One morning a countryman entered the inn where the phrenologist had his rooms, and said to our 1>i ml lord aforesaid : 44 Is this the placo where the phrenologist ' hold? out," who can tell a man's karactcr by tlie 1?limps onto his skull ?"

There were tour or live niorniug-loungers in toe tavern, who checked a laugh, as the coun tryman to -l? his seat, having first, as request ed, removed his coat; vest, and neck-cloth.

The Murder and S uicide at St. Louis. An iaei lout oi a most painful and interest ing character has just been brought to light, the murder of a sister by the hands of her own brother, and subsequently his ewn self-destruc tion. it will be remembered that oa M Mid ay morning wo noticed the fact that a youug man by the name i'. F. Blessing, was found doud iu his room at King's Hotel. Aler circum stances that led conclusively to the belief that he had Committed suicide. .Such, indued, turned out to be the fact, and the circumstan ces connected with it and the murder which preceded, are of a nature intensely interesting. 'i'ne name of the unfortunate fcirl was Emily Blessing, who having no parents, was left to the guardiaushipof lier brother and a married :-i.?ter who lives in this citj*. We do not pro fess to be strictly accurate, but arc informed that site was placed in a c invent in this city, from which place .-he frequently escaped, and gave such evidences of a dissolute life as to render her relatives exceedingly unhappy.? Young Blessing, her brother, was particularly alloc ted by her behaviour, and for some time previous to liie dreadful occurrence, seemed at times low spirited On the aftern??ou of the fatal day. he got a buggy and proceeded t-? a house ou Fourth street, well known for its bad repute, and there ?.iw his s.hter, whom he pre vailed upon to take a ride with him. Ui-< manner is represented as having beeu quiet aod exhibiting no sign of the terrible resolu tion he had evidently coucealed in his heart. The brother and sister left tllat house to gether. It is known that he went up the Bell elbntaino road with and returned without her lie came back to his hotel near du>k. where he was j >iued, we arc told, by his brother anil brother-in-law, with whom ho spent the even ing in his own room, they little dreaming of the dieadful act he had committed. Mis con duct. in fact, appeared mthergay, ni.d ho sent for a, bottle of champagne, which w is drank in the meantime he occupied himself in writ ing a letter. After an hour or so thus spent, they left, and in the morning, as before re corded, he was found a corpse The fact o;' his having takea his sister on with him and returning without her, and his well known sensitive nature, created a suspi cion that he ha i killed her as well as himseii and accordingly search wa?< made in tie direc tion which they hod gone, and yesterday morniag tho body of Emily Blessing, his sie t.-r, was found ne:?r the Wa'kins read.

Louts, Krpnb/icaH, July 11. 'Blood Tub*" and "Buffer* The streets were the scene on Saturday night of as disgraceful an exhibition as has been witnessed in them for a long time. A gang of young rowdies, calling themselves "Copper heads," that have been disgracing the city abroad, returned home on Saturday night and were received at the wharves l?y several kind red organizations. The participants, who were generally boys from sixteen to twenty {?ears of age, w#re dressed in the most ridicu ously fantastical custom. Some were opeuly armed with swords and axes, while the great majority were doubtless provided with pistol*, knives and slungshot The deviees exhibited abundantly testified the character ami objects of the clubs. The lanterns bore such names as ''Rugs.-' -Buffers." "Bloud-tuba" ani ?'Copper-heads/' \\ c never saw a worse looking set of young1 cut-throats than took pnrt in this masquerade: their faces sufficiently indicated their brutal instincts, while their conduct left no room t-> doubt their real character. Most of the row dies were drunk, and a* they reeled blaaphu ming through the street- decent people shrunk away in disgust. The police picked off indi viduals from the line at different print-*, but* there was no general and coirbined i ff >rt mad?* to scatter the blackguards, though they para ded the .-treefe during the entire evening. As might have been expected, outrage and violence resulted from ibis exhibition. As ono of the clubs was pn??ing down Eighth street, below bhippee. juei. belore 10 o'clock, a mu latto, about the age of twenty-five year-, nam*l William Mauley, was stabbed in the right gr<.in and stomach, with a dirk, by somn person not yet identified The wound in dieted was about ;m inch an 1 a quarter iu length Manley in.raediatelv cried out that he wan stabbed, un l fell b.icK.

They were taken to tho Hospital, to ee if Manley ootid reeogni?o either of thein ; but the sufferer could not <ay positively as to their juilt. Tliey were com mitted f->r a hearing Manley was following the club.

C Bmiface, a ineml?er of the theatrical profession, aud at one time a resident of this city, was arretted iu Cleveland, on Friday night, on a charge ot aedncticm. It appears that Mr Boniface *n-l Muss tteddeck. aged about fourteen, being enamored of eaeh other, adopted a plan tj se cure a clandestine interview, which, though after the mo.-t approved plans of getting up a ?? scene" on the .-tAge, was not exactly c; ?so nant with the rules of society, or with tho girl 's mother1* idea of propriety The young lady, whether aided by her lover or not doe* not appear, disguised herself in citizen J dress, ?o as to appear like a:i actor who was well known at her mother's dwelling and during the evening passed out oi' the hou-o without attracting any attention. and pro ceeded to meet the expected rwain ?t the ap pointed place. About one o'clock the mother \fx< apprised of the absence of the daughter, and making inquiry and patting this and that together, arrived at the conclusion that alio had. under disguise, gono to enjoy the com pany of Mr. Boniface, if not to leave tho city with him. She immediately waited on the Mayor and had a warrant issued for Mr. B.'s arrest. The girl was found during the night hy tho police, fa?t asleep in h carriage .-landing ? rt the bank at the foot of Senesa street, and ac counted for her pre.-ence there iu the following way: '"She had returned home in her man s attire at 2 o'cloeh and reached her rtJom with ont being seen, an I bting aware of the grief of her mother. re-drc:-ed herself in her own clothes, and made her escape by the ba^k do>>r, and reached the foot of the street near tlio Lake, intending to drown herself, l ut think ing it a m::tter worthy of a second considera tion. had i-tepped into the carriage, aad being overcome by the arduous duties of acting a Juliet s part in a Borneo's attire, had falleu asleep.''
