PASSAGE FROM TIE DIARY OP A SOCIETY MAN. Thought the parties were over; was mie. taken. On nay return from Philadelphia found an invitation from Mrs. Bobtell to ? sort Gf evening fete chsmpctro. Bobtellslive at lliah Bridge. Thought what a lark ii would bo to ride out on horseback and come home rather jay in the morning. A large party wcregoin* from the Blimmin* in an omnibus they bad chartered. Mrs. Blimmins told me she would be very happy to give me a seat; said I was zoing out on horseback ; said she was afraid I d find it fatiguing;- replied in a nonchalant sort of way that I thought nothing of ridir? to High Bridge ; that I was devoto'l to riding. &c , and reflected with what satisfaction I d .enjoy passing the Blimmins's old omnibus, in a cavalier, knightly sort of manner, on a high mettled steed. Jim Brown made me the tempting offer to take me in his bugzy, but aihering to my first determination, 1 walked up to Dicker's to procure a horse.

" Oh that's the naturo of the beast?she don't mean nuth m by that; it's only a trifle playful, ye see? and she s always a lcetle excited when she sees gents ; but there arn't a kinderer chickcn !?W ., ? ?

The saddle was very uncomfortable ; didn't seem to have any stuffing. Got along pretty de oently till 1 reached the reservoir, where three little boys called out something, which I didn t distinctly understand ; think they said something about a "millishee dragoon;" sup posed it was well meant; thought I'd make triends with them, and asked if the Avenue was closed beyond?there, pointing to where there seemed to be a rough fence. ?' Guess it are," says one "They don't let Shamrhais with mustachers through," says another " Ain t you a nice looking duck, a ridin' that broomstick," says the third. Felt outraged and swore a little at the trio; one of the in re plied by throwing a clamshell, which cut Eu pheemy upon the nose, and off she went like a sky rocket. There wa* no holding her in ; she ran two miles at least; managed to keep her clear of everything; everybody looked at me; passed the Blimmins party in the omni bus ; the men all called out to me; the young ladies looked out of the windows and laughed; passed a great many I knew, and laughed ; no one pitied me, for I was really in danger, though no one knew it; both f'oet clear of the stirrups; I only kept my seat by sitting side ways and holding on before and behind to the saddle ; in that graceful position rode till Eu pheemy showed signs of giving out, and at length, after shaking my vitals well, and ta king my gasping breath away by a hard trot that followed the run, she tapered off into a walk, her side glowing with the heat, (the two mile heat, I mean ) The perspiration was rolling dowa ray face ; my collar was thawed out; tho dignity of starch was gone ; cravat undone and hanging loose ; three vest buttons snapped off; shirt bosom open; a beautiful enameled stud gone; both panta loons straps burst; pantaloons reefed up close to my knees; an isthmus of linen between the pantaloons and vest, former having taken an informal leave of the latter; hair topped about; back disjointed, spinal column coming through ! In this condition, feeling myself the most miserably wretched and dislocated of mortals, in tho bitterness of despair, what should I hear but the wheels of the hateful Blimmins's omnibus overtaking mo; hadn't tho strength to whip up and keop ahead of them ; felt myself oompletely run down, and coolly waited for them to drive up, which they very soon did ; and Mrs Blimmins cried out to know if I was hurt, and wonder whether I hadn't better get down and ride with them "I fear you can 't hold that horo, Mr. " says Mr. B , ?? he looks vicious." In my ex hausted state I could hardly reply, particu larly as just then Eupheemy had got back into her horrid jog-trot, and was bouncing me up and down like an India rubber ball. In vain I jerked out spasmodically that I was " having a ve-ve-r-y n-i-i-ce time " I f?it what a ridiculous object I must be, and that Mrs Blimmins and her whole party wore laughing at me in their sleeves. ^ Reports are current that the Emperor of the French is in a reaUy critical state of lealth.

We fled the following description of La* Island in the N 0 Picayune of tfc* 17th ?it The terrible calamity which bw already been chronicled, will reader a doscrif tion of it a matter of deep Interest to onr reader* : ?? No such calamity, in wide-spread and sodden destruction of life, hat ever been known in this region before. An island, twenty fire mile* in length, and from a halt to three-fourths of a mile in width, paopled by several hundred' of the best clans of Louisiana socialy, has been literally washod away by the raging waters, and more than half the in habitants engulied by the pitiless waves, or bra'sed and crashed to death amidst the frag ment" of mined habitations, totting in the ?id Whirlp001 which destroyed the te i ? >air?<ii^nt may not know where Lnst Island is, which has been the soene of these horrors It is the most westerly, and therefore termed the <? Last," of a chain of islands extending from the month of the Mis sissippi, westward, a few miles from the main land It* direction from New Orleans is a few degrees west of south, and the air-lino would not be over seventy-five miles, as we estimate, on the map. It may be reached by the way of the river, bat since the building of the Opelou'is Railroad, access has been very much facilitated by tfeat route. Travel ers took the railroad to Bayou B.euf, thence by steamboat down the Atchafalaya river into the gulf, by the bay, or through ooa of the bayous From the city to Bayou Bceuf is ? :vcnty-three miles, and it is about thirty miles to the month of the bay. '? Last Islaud iies some eignteen or twenty miles in the gulf, east of the Capet of Atcha falaya Bay, and five or six miles from the nearest shore, it was in a wild place?a sac t bank, in fact?covered with very scanty veg elation, but so open to the cooling breete of the gulf, and with sush a fine beach, and abounding with fish and oysters, that it be came at first an occasional resort for fi?hing *ud pis nic parties, and of late years grew to be a pleasant summering place for planter* and their families from the Attakapas and Lafourche parisbe- Several of them h?*i built cottages, and some building* had been erected of quite adorable deacriptioo. Tho railroad oflered such facilities of communica tion that the island was frequently visited fr>tn this city, and grew so much in favor th*t a plan was suggested, and had met with very liberal countenance, for making a summering p!a;c there on an extended scale, by the erw tion rf a very large hotel, under the charge rf Hall k tiildreth, of the St. Charles Hotel Tha designs and elevations were shown to us some months ago, and it was thought the en terprise might be complete and in operation for the next season This simmer, a hotel was kept there by Mr John Alaggah. which hr>s hud a very considerable support, and the i. land has had a large number ? f visitor* " The list of the Ic*t and the saved will show anybody acquainted with this State that there was gathering upon this little spot in the gulf, at the time of the storm, a large rep resentation of the wealth and inteHig?nee of the btjfct clashes of the population of Louisiana They made the barren sand bank the ssat of refinement and hospitality, wh^re in a single day. almort within a single hour, death oame in his most hideous form and .-wept one half of them into a nameless grave, and made the whole place desolate forever. The me.wory of this storm, which has carried mourning l^lo every ravish in South Louisiana, for the un timely fate of kindred or dear frienda. will, for many a year to come, repel with a shudder all thought of L ?t island for a dwelling place Every murmur of the cooling surf in its quiet est mood, and every sigh of the summer breeze in it* balmiest breathings, will be a sadden ing memento of the time when a happy crowd were gathered there f >r innocent enjoyment, and the storm came suddenly and heaped the waters upon them. The tea and the wind* will seem to chaat an eternal dirge for the dead Why Bodies Torn in Coffins?Adipocere A pap?r, read by Dr. Coffin, fTrail Green's,) on so called Human Petrifications, before thu Scientific Convention, has a good deal of pop ular interest It ig a sort of commeot upon a story extracted from the correspondence of the Rushviile (Iowa^ Republican, about the body of a boy who died at seven years of ago and was buried On being disinterred, sai i the story, the skin and muscles were found in a good state of preservation, but changed to store. The bones were unaltered, and th<*e of the arms were movable in their stony en casements. The substance of the brain wa? fouud little altered. Ac. The paper of Mr. Green presumed that this was a popular way of describing a case of the human body changed to adipocere. The pres ent removal of bodies from city to country church yards has brought to light many case< of this sort. The properties of adipocere are well known it is defined as that fatty and spermaceti-like substance into which muscle ii converted by long immersion in water or spirit, or by burial in moist earth The reader exhibited a largo spocimen of it, and pro ceedo I to give its history. It was taken from a cotfia that had been buried in a very damp c'ayey soil, through which the water could not soak. In the same ground another body, in similar condition, was found seven years after buria" ?the body floating fn water. In one of these cases the lower limbs were crossed at the thighs The specimen exhibited was part of tho body of a woman who died over seventy years of age. aud had been interred seven t;en years The sperific gravity of adipoc ri is frooi 762 to b58 thousandths. Hence it will float in water, and if a oofiin is filled with water the whole corpse floats; and settles ag.iin as the water leaks out in a position that will bo determined by the weight of its differ ent portions. This doubtless acoounts for the imagined turning of bodies in their coffins, and ha? lei to the popular belief that burb.l before death is not uncommon. The escape of gases was formerly the theory to account for such turuings , but he did not think it so sat isfactory. The knowledge of this fact will prevent the oocurr?nce of the fresh and unne cessary grief often caused by the discovery of these 44 turnings." The conclusion of Qibbs who experimented in 17V4-5 u to the forma tion of adipocere. was that it is formed from fi brine. Dr. Steiner reported the case of a body changed into whit seemed to be adipocere which was found, in a Washington city Vave' yard, after twenty-five years burial, but the only organ that coald be satisfactorily identi fied was the liver Here was a gland, not a fibrinous structure, undergoing this remarka be change. Possibly it was a case of fatty degeneration. The graveyard wax very low gfpUn?' ^ the P"*? were full of watar.
