EVENING STAK. Home, Sweet Home. Though the trite old song, " Home, Sweet Home,*' hu been sang within the home circle of almost every household, yet how few per son! of nil who have heard its tweet strain*, know who was the author of those beautiful words? "Mid pleasure* and palaces, though we may roam, Be it ever Fobamble, there's no place like heme " It perhaps has neTer occurred to the mind of any one unacquainted wi h the circum stances, that the writer of a soog which ha* found an esho in so many hearts, could be other than one who had ezperienoed ail tbe pleasures of a happy home ; but sad as is the refleotion, it is nevertheless true, that John Howard Payne, the author of " Home, sweet Home," though he has oontributed to the bap iness of many homes, never had a home oi is own. We olip the article below, suggesting that a monument be erected to the memorvof Payne, from the Boston Olive Branch, and givo it a place in our oolumns, believing that it will find a response in the hearts of our readers : Th* Author or "Sw**t Ho**."?A? I sit sit In my garret herein Washington, watching the course of great men, and the destiny of party, I meet often with strange contradic tions in this eventful life. The most remark able was that of John Howard Payne, anther of " Sweet Home." I knew him personally He occupied the rooms under me for some time, and his conversation was so captivating that I often spent whole days in hu epart mcnts He was an applicant fcr office at the time?coutul at Tunis?from which he had been removed. What a sad thing it ws to see tbe poet subjected to all the humiliati' n of t Sice seeking ! Of an evening we would walk along tbe street. Once in a while wt would see some family circle so happy, and forming to .beautiful a group, that we would stop, and then pass silently on. On such occasions be would give a historj of hid wandering, bis trials, and all his caret incident to his sensitive nature and poverty " How often," said he orce, " have I been in the heart of Paris, Berlin, and London, or some otber city, and heard persons singing, cr tbe hand-organ playing " fcweet Homo," with out a shilling to buy the next meal, or a place to lay my head. Ibe world literally sung my song, until every heart is familiar with its melody. Yet I have been a wanderer from my boyhood. My country has turned me ruthless from office ; and in old age I have to submit to humiliation for bread." Thus he would complain of his hapless lot. His only wish was to die in a foreign land, to be buried by ttrangers, and sleep in obscurity. I met birn one day looking unusually sad. " Have you got your consulate ?" said I "Yes, and leave in a week for Tunis; I shall never return " The last expression was not a political faith Far from it Poor Payne! bis wish was real ised ; he died at Tunis. Whether his re mains have been brought to thU country, I know cot They should be; and if none others would do it, let the homeless through out tbe world give a penny for a monument to Payne I knew him, and will give my penny for an inscription like the following : BSKR LIES J. HOWARD PAYNE, The Author of ' Sweet HonuV A wanderer in life; he whose songs were sung in every tongue and found an echo in every heart, NEVER HAD A HOME. hi Dixn In a Foreign Land. Idl6Wild, the Residence of N P. Willis. Mr Vaux, in his book on "Villages and Cottages," gives a description of Idlewild, from which we extract the following : " The position selected, while it command; a full view of Newburg bay, is on the edge of a wood, and on the verge of a plateau that almost overhangs a deep ravine. The rockj sides of this gorge are clothed with sturdy pines and hemlocks, and thua often shut out from the eye, but never from the ear. a tur bulent mountain stream that roars through the long, narrow pass, and falls some two hun dred feet in a scries of rapid, successive leaps, within a short distance of the house. There is also a quieter brook that winds its whj through the property, and yet another smaller rivulet, both of which, after fraternising with their more noisy and energetic companion, dow into Moodna Creek, which, almost at th. same point, empties itself into tho Hudson The site for the house is therefore very pic turesque, and is peculiar in many respects overlooking, as it does, tha Hudson and three or four of its tributaries. These latter, with the ravine and inland scenery, lie far down on one side. Beautiful views of the bay and Highlands are gained from the south and ea:t fronts and a thick pine wood encircles and protects the remainder. "When tbe building had been entirely erected on paper, and before the foundations were laid, all the lines of the plan were set out under the special direction of Mr Willia, who seemed to take more interest in accom modating tho house to the fancies of tbe ge nius of tbe place than in any other part of the arrangement And tbe whole de ign was to fitted among the evergreens, and adopted to every peculiarity of the site, that it appeals to be almost surrounded by tall, flourishing trees ; although broad stretches of distance in every direction, and extensive views of the river and mountain scenery, are gained from the various window?, each view being a *ef a rate picture set in a frame of unfading foliage. The advantageous result arrived at by this careful study of the exact position for such a house, although more negative than positive, is incalculable. The new house T7as made to look not new, points of view were not sacri ficed, and time was not lost in waiting for young trees to grow in place of old ones that would have had to be removed for the sake of a prospect, if less foresight bad been exer cised at starting. In suob cases it is the foot or two one way or the other thkt makes or mars, and when onoe tbe contractor is fairly at work, alteration is next to impossible. "Mr. Willis's house looked like an old fa miliar settler almost before tbe roof was on, and it can easily be understood that, under such circumstances, every subsequent stroke in the way of improvement will yield its full est value. " From the upper approach road on the level of the plateau and principal entrance the house appears to be, what in actual fact it is, a plain, roomy cottage residence, comfort, ably sheltered among the trees ; but from the lower road along tbe river bank, at the mouth of the gorge, its situation gives it a less ordi nary effect. High up among the trees, and apparently on the very edge of a precipitous ascent, it seems to peer over the topmost branches of the dark pines, and to oommand the whole valley below. The position is ex actly such a one as a medieval knight would have selected for his stronghold, and a little imagination may eisily transmute the simple domestio cottage into the turreted and battle mented castle tdf The fastest time on record is said to have been made by the mare Lady Kate, in a trotting match on the ice at Chicago, 111., the other day, she having completed the last mHein2 20. ty A young man was killed in Roehester, K.

Ae Miss H. was walking Wathingteu street one of the pleasantest days last week, imagine ber suprise in pawing a large and masculine 1 oking woman, dressed in the height of fW?h ion, with hoops and crinoline, and bavin upon ker head the very identical velvet hat Whit^XA^ J0*", V1" WM to * <*??? ? What ooald be done* Every step was takin* ? he bonnet further from its owner, who was alone and a stranger in the city. It did sot take her long to decide. She started in the same direction, and was soon alongside of the velvet hat " Where do you retide, madam?" " In Court," was the reply. " Are you going home ?" S " I am" " Go on, and don t let me hinder you " And onward they walked, now to tba right aD'i dow to the left. At leftgth they entered a dark alley, and after passing several dismal abodes they hslted at a door. " Do you live here ?" 411 do?upon the second floor." ^ Go up then fori have business with you." They entered. After gnng up two flights >f stairs tkey reached a room in which tt>?y found five women They entered the room, and^bere our heroine made known her busi ness Porting henelf by the door, with a calm but defiaot look, she demanded of the woman to kpow where she obtained the velret hat *hc ?bawl, and the La* que upon her person I bought them." was the reply, " No, you did not; they were stolea, and now take them off immediately." Had a bombshell exploded in the room, the confusion could not Lave been greater. But *reat as it was, it did not in'imidata the owner of the velvet hat in the least degree. It only changed the happy and faacinating look of a most beautiful face to the unconquered look cf a Cromwell. "Now be quiet and own up, and bring for ward the stolen goods, for it wil> be better >r you Now I have found the goods, aud thief, no doubt, 1 am going for an officer Sea that none of you leave the room or disturb an article while I am gone " While descending the stairs our heroine es pied a doctor on his way to visit the sick, and tsked his assistance. *' I have," said she, '? found fome stoleu property, and have it ee' care in this house ; will you call an effioer to .mist main removing it?" The doctor readily ?assented, and while he sought for policemen, ?he still guarded her trust. At lengtb the doctor, with four policemen, arrived, when ??ur her,me transferred the custody of both oersons and property to the officers of the law. The remainder of thestolen property wassooa found, and the lady relieved of her borrowed plumage was provided with rooms at the Cam bridge street jail, where she still remains, waiting the sentence of the law. Dueling In Albany?An Xxciting Tragedy The Albany Times gives the following ac count of a tragic affair which came off in that eity on Friday. Of course there was a "woman in it " It appears that J. T. was smitten with a young lady, and feeling that J. J ?a young man much "on his good looks"?was trasdirg ?m his corns, and surreptitiously endeavoring to cut him out, bitterness ensued, and ar rangements for a duel was the result. Wea pons pistols; place, Buttermilk Falls; dis tance, ten paces. An unheard of arrangement was made, to the effect that if "J T " on the first fire did not succeed in bitting MJ J ," he was to retire, and T Ji , his saoond, assu ming his place, was to pop away at J J , and thus tbo latter was to be alternate'" popped at. Powder, however, smelt to bim I ke ecu de cologne, and he was eager for the fray. At 10 a m. the parties were on the ground ?T. J and T. L on the one side, J. J?, with J. J , Jr , his second, on the other, and Sur {eon ? W. The preliminaries were speadily arrsuged, and the principals took their posi tion to ?? do or die " The seconds received the '? last dying words and declarations," and retired, leaving the two fiercely face to face, and awaiting the fatal word ''One !" '?two!" "three !" were given, at the word "three" the pistol* beirg discharged simultaneously By standers at onoe saw that neither of the twain were hurt, but several minutes were consumed ere the principals were satisfied to this effect, each involuntarily spplying his hands to dif ferent portions of his person, in search of tba wound. Being satisfied on this point, they resolutely repelled all attempts by the sec onds to reconcile matters, and insisted on an * other sUet. Accordingly, and in keeping with the strange conditions, T L took the position of J. T as principal, and J. J again faced the music, to a fresh chsrge, with ?* nary a quail." Toe spectators awaited the result with anx iety Both gentlemen, it was known, had hit bam doors at a further distance, and hence the danger. The word was given, the report was heard, &nd J J staggered, reeled aiid fell into the arms of his second, who "in a second." was beside him. Surgeon ?. W at once attended to the wound, and, on taking tff his coat, blood in spots revealed itself " T L." the "shooter," hastened to bis side, but "J T ," the " first principal," seeing the blood, and realiring what had been dec*, straightway took to his heels, and fled with rapidity toward the city Soon after, tha rest of the party followed with "J. J " Hi? wound is not serious owing mainly to the fact that no balls were in the pistols, and as for the blood which created so much consterca* tion, it had been procured at a butcher's sev eral hours before! Thus ended the trage dy, in which one of the parties was awfally hoaxed. The Glasgow (Ky.) Journal says that the peach crop in that region has been entire ly destroyed by the last frost. 17" A Seuthern Episcopal University is about to be established, xhe location will probably be in Cleveland, Tenn.
