W a had a strange scene here yetterdav in the ladies parlor. Protestor Hare is here and mad as a March liar* on the Ufaject of hIii'Tw'h' ll* ,ectarc(1 at Metropolitan ?Wednesday evemng epon what he fans tbe evidences of immortality and I saw among tbe audience Mr Joseph GriaLell and Gen. \V ebb evidently listening attentively and yet laughing at the exhibition 1 esterday afternoon the Professor, who is scventy-f veyears cf ago, and has, all his life, been mi open and avowed skeptic, ridiculing and batthng against all religion and revela tion, proposed to give a lecture on spiritual ism m the ladies parlor. Nobody objected : and old and young?christian and atheist? ? t down to listen. The age and high stand ing of the Professor, and respect for his pa*t i character, commanded the respect of all pres ent; and when he solemnly assured ihe au dience that be embarked in the investigation of the subject simply to expos? and destroy wba* ho considered an absurdity, but that the spirits ef his father, brother, sister and friends . a entreated him to listen to them whilo thoy gave him evidence of its trutb. he evidently made a deep impression upon all present, especially the youthful and those wh? did not know that he is, and ever has been the open scoffer at all revealed religion. At this stage of tho proceeding, lien. Webb arose acd inquired of the Profossor, whether la his lecture the evening previous, in his pub.isned booK, and his conversations on the piazza of the hotel, he had not proclaimed, that spiritualism as understood by nim, neces sarily involved a renunciation of all hclief in tnc lit hie and in revealed Rihgion ' At this the Professor flow into a passion, declared the interruption impertinent, and said ho would not be catechized (Jen. Webb aid that in his own lecture-room on tho prcceain,; evening, ho bad not presumed to interrupt him ; but that here, in tho par'or of a joit l common to all, it was his right so to do, and to put the unsuspecting and tho youDg per sons present upon their guard. The Professor was very angry, but finally promised that when through with his lecture he would an ucstions Gen. Webb replied, that as tho Professor had proclaimed it to be the duty of every honest man, to inquiro after and elicit truth, eo in his judgment, was it tho duty of every Christian man, to exp'-*o and correct error ; and that having given tho cau tion, he was content to wait until the Proles sor had finished. Upon tho Professor's closing, (ion. Webb xo5o, when immediately the Professor insisted that he should not be heard because he had interrupted him but finally was compelled to be quiet Gen. Webb then said?d<? not intend to a.-k any qucetionsof Pr<>fe.sor Hare, whoso ago and position eutitlehim to our pro found respect; but I desire t'> make a st it? inent to you 1 heard tho Professor lecture l ist night. On that occasion, on tho piazxt ot this llotcl. and in bis book now lying on that tablo, he has proclaimed on the author ity of the spirits of Washington, Franklir, Adams, Chalmers, Clay, Jackson, his own lather and a host of others, that there i3 not <?no particle of truth in the Bible or revealed Religion ; but that the whole fabric of Chris tianity is an imp'.-ition upon the credulity of mankind It I misrepresent tfao Protestor 1 hopo ho will correct mo." The Professor rdm ply bowed. Gen. Webb then contiuael, " Early in life I was in tho same law office with Judge Edmonds, who is the head and Iront of this offending " Profes>or Hare?I deny that Gen Wkbb?I yield the point My brother married Judge Edmond s sister, and i have known and respected him from boyhood I mention these facts to show that I speak ad visedly when I siy that Judge Edmonds, who is at least an older convert to Spiritualism than 1 rofessor llare, and who is considered by the public as the chief of the sect, has always assured his friends and relations that be too has consulted the spirits of Washington' rranklin, Clay, Kent, and, in short, all tho worthies named by Professor Hare, and thnt they, one and all, assure hint that there is nothing in Spiritualism which conflict- di rectly or indirectly, with ike religion oj ike hihle. Now, I have the gre.ite-t possible respect for the veracity of both Judge Ed monds and Professor Hare, but, -when I ficd them differing so widely in regard to what the opiritd declare, I have no alternative but to believe them acting under some strange delu sion or to supposo them guilty of falsehood and deception, or to assume that the spirits with whom they commune are lying spirits whose testimony is not to be relied on, and' more particularly, when all their teachings aro at war with the teachings of the Saviour oj the world. I have nothing more to say and leave the Professor to make any exnl mo tion he pleases * Professor Hare then proceeded to explain that the spirits with which Edmonds cc.nversos' are lying spirits ; and that they had tried to deceive him also, but that he was too much lor tLem He had told Edmonds so, and tried to convince him that Spiritualism proved the falsehood of what we call revelation ! Duelling.?The South Side Democrat has some sensible reflections ia regard to " public sentiment in Virginia on the subject of duel ing. The inconsistencies of that public sen timent are happily pointed out. If. for exam pie, a challenge is declined, it is regarded as evidence of want of courage, no matter whether the party challenged has the imperi 3us claims of family pressing upon him, and an acceptance would wring the devoted heart* of loved ones dependant upon him for subsistence md happiness. If the challenge is accepted and the parties figtit, but do not wouud or kill' the public considers itself swindled; if one falls, the survivor is eternally damned aj a murderer. The wuger of battle in theso dayj is about is reasonable as the old modeof trying witches The accused was thrown into a pond, and if she sunk she was innocent; if the came to the top, she was guilty, and forthwith hung If wen decline to fight, or fight and do not kill Lhey are pronounced guilty or oowardico ; it Lhoy kill, guilty of murder. Woman.?Tho obstinato woman goes to sea in a band-box. The patient woman roasts an ox with u burning glass. The curious woman would like to turn a rainbow over, to see what thero was on tho jther side The vulgar woman is a spider attempting to spin milk. The cautious woman writes hor rromisc: on i slate The envious woman kills herself in endea voring to lace tighter than her neighbors. The extravagant woman burns a wax can dle in looking for a lucifer match. Tho foolish woman loves golden dress better than sparkling diamonds of the heart.

It was a plain case , the row had oocurred in the public street, in open day, and there were fifty witnes.-es to the whole transaction. S> the ?wn delinquents pleaded guilty, by the alvico of their counsel, and threw themselves on the mercy of the court They were then brought up for sentenoe separately " You are guilty of an affray," growled the Judge. "res. your Honor," whined the offender, thoroughly frightened. ' i>runk, I suppose," granted the Judge. " Yes, your Honor." murmured the priso ner, with some faint hope that having been drunk would mitigate the punishment. " Drunk on rye whisky, too, I'll warrant," roared the Judge in a voice of thun-ler " Ye?, your Honor, drunk on rye whisky." il Mr. Clerk, record a fine of fifty dollars against this man," cried the Judge, "send him to jail for sixty days. I shall fine the next one who is guilty under such aggravating circumstances, a hundred dollars, and send him to jail for six months '' This was poor comfort for the unfortunate fellow who was waiting his turn, and now came forward with fear and trembling. As he passed along by his lawyer, that thought ful gentleman whimpered in his ear : *? When the Judge asks you what you got drank on, tell him on peach and honey " He took his stand. "You, too, are up here for an affray," growled the old Judge, gnashing his teeth, as if he would like to bite tne culprit at the bar. '? Yes, your Honor " " Drunk, too, 1 suppose." " Yes, your Honor; sorry to say it?drank? very drunk." " Drunk on rye whisky, too, I suppose?" 44 Oh, no, your Honor , 1 never drink whis ky. Ig ot drunk on peach and honey " The Judge's featuros relaxed in an instant. Leaning forward and raising his spectacles, he contemplated the offender with interest, and then with something like tendernoss. "Ah! sir," siid the Judge, blandly; " peach and honey, eh ! that's a gentlemanly drink, sir The oourt sympathises with you, sir, and does not rogard your offenoe as very serious. Mr. Clerk," he continued in a soft ening tone, " enter a fine of one dollar against this gentleman, and discharge him on pay ment of cost." ty* The following quotation from De Wuin cey e " Literary Reminiscences," miy admit of a moral signifisation : "The native Dale<man. well aware of the fury with which the wind gathers and eddies abwut any eminence, however trifling its ele? vation, never thinks of planting his hou*e there ; whereas, the stranger, singly solicit oni about tho prospcct or the range of lake which his gilt saloons are to command, chooees his site too often upon points better fitted for a temple of EMn? thsn a human dwelling plaoe; and he belts his house with balconies and verandas that a mountain gale often tears aw ay in mockery." The King of Naples has become &o strict with regard to outward signs of rerubli. can ism. that he will not allow the ladies of that city to wear plaid with red, white atd blue stripes, nor ribbons ot the same colors; and he has even ordered all the turkeys, bens, and chickens, which have trio? lo red feathers, to beaaiaad and slaughtered."
