The Albany Kui?kerbocker telle a rich 'tory growing out of a correspondence between Senator Uptam. of the New York State Legis ture, and H irding, the celebrated portrait painter. Hording, it soema, had been paint ing in Mr Upham's family, iie wrote to the . Senator, and addressed him thus : " Hon A. S. Upham, Senate Chamber, Albany." For | tome reason, the Senator did not return aa answer. In due time, he reoaived another from the same artist, with a much more lacon ic superscription. It read : " A. S Upham, wagon makor, Aibany." Thia putthegalf to the Senator, who replied without further da lay. addressing his correspondent as follows : " (Jen Harding, Sign and Chair Painter, Buf falo." The joke being mutual between tbem, we have a right to infer that honorable men love the reminiscences of youth. ? ...The Independence Beige, of the 2d inst., says: "The departure of Horace Yer net for New York ia announced. Several pie turea have been taken of him, and ;h?a en itflgement will probably detain him in the United States aoout aix months We do not know if Horace Vernet baa accepted the en gagement, but a story is circulated in the dif ferent ateliers of eminent artists that he will not resist the tempting offer of $200,000. If Yercet should execute several pictures in the United States, he would undoubtedly realise an immense fortune." We see that some of our contemporaries take exception to the engagement of Veraet to paint a picture for the Capitol, and claim that all ita worka of art should be executed by American artists Why not, with the tame propriety, demand that all the booka in the Cengremonal Libray be written by American authora ? The Humbug of Spiritualism. Four years ago a young boy, aged 12 years, hung himself at Nassau, near Iroy. it was thought that he had committed suicide, and no inquest waa held. Recently?we condense from * two-columned stbtement in tbs Troy Times?at a spiritual cirole at Nassau, soma person, who folt a curiosity to teat tbe matter, inquired if the spirit of the boy Phillips could be made to appear? An xffirmative response wad immediately given. It was then asked if he Lad committed suicide, as waa generally supposed ? The answer was in the negative. Upon being asked how he came to his death, the spirit replied that he had been murdered, and gave the f-cts, substantially as follows : He was acquainted with a woman who lived in the same neighborhood as himsalf,who had always been friendly towarda him. Oa one unlucky day, however, be became cognisant of the fact that she waa holding illicit inter, course witn a man, whose name was given. Tbe guilty party learned of this discovery, and fearing the exposure by him of one crime, averted it by adding another- While he tlept, a nc.il was driven into his head, in a portion whence no blood flowed, and he awoke in the spirit world. Hia body was then taken to the ia:m, and bung by the neck to one of the raf teia, in the manner in which it waa when found. An immense turmoil thereupon ensaed in Nassau. The remains were disinterred ia the presence of a large concourse of spectators; an icque$t was held; but the skull was unbroken and there was no evidence of death by fcul means. It appeared from the evidence that on ihe.dsy preceding hia death the boy Levi had attended a circus, and was considerably excited by the daring feats performed there. There was to be a busking at the barn that evening, and from the cir'umstancea it would appear that he had attached the rope to the rafters, and was practicing gymnastic exercises npon it, detigning to astonish his friends with souio daring feats. While practising thus, he was probably caught by the neck, and, there being no assistance at hand, hanged until he was aead. Ihe coroner a jury, of coarse, re turned a verdict of accidental death The worst remains to be told. The woman accused of the murder was the b^y'a mother, a lady of excellent character, and devotedly attached to her sen She ia now seriously ill from the effects of tbe painful rumors which have been in circulation. The *'medium ' waa a Mr Reynolds, formerly of Nassau, and cogniunt of the boy't death, bat who subse quently removed to Illinois, and became a first-class spiritualiit ?N. Y. Mirror. HP* An "enterprising" church member, full of good deeda, and abounding in go< d words, but aa apt aa other folka to apeak hit his mind 44 let out" a little a fow days since, his disappointment at finding hia aupp>er table not eo well provided at hit huagry ttomach desired:?44 Nothing fit to eat; might at well give it up without sitting down," Ac , Ao. All this did n0t interfere with tbe usual preli minaries. A few intimate frienda were pres ent, and all were coca seated, heads boabed dowa, and grace commenced. 41 We thank thee, 0 Lord, for this boantiful provision." That was enough for the friends The loud laugh came forth unrestrained; the *4 head of the table" even joined in, declaring, how ever, that it was too bad to laugh, but guess in - he should take care in future how he found fault with hia good wife's proviaioat. ry While the citiiena of New York are beiog "garoted," and those of Baltimore are nightly ia danger of being shot la the street, gangs of rowdies are disgracing Albany by assaultirg and outraging females whoventara out after nightfall. Tbe New Orleans Picayane tsyt thst the guns used in that oity on the 23d of He eember last, in the national salute, at neon, were distinctly heard in Marionoonaty, Miss., a distance ia an air line of not lest thaa 80 or 90 miles.
