A Remarkable Case op SriRiT Rkvklatio* A circumstance fully as remarkable as anj recorded, occurred at OdeflM in the year 1342 An old blind man named Michel had for man.* years been accustomed to get his living by seat ing himself every morning on a beam in one of the timber yards, with a woxlen bowl at his feet, into which the passengers cast their aims^ This long-continued practice had made i well-known to the inhabitants, and, as e believed to have been formerly a sol blindness was attributed to the nu wounds he had received in battle. ^ part, he spoke little, and never contradicted thUnePni<ht. Michel by *>me accident, fell in with a little girl ten years old, named Powles *a, who was friendless, and on the verge of perishing with cold and hunger. The old man took her home and adopted her; and, from that time, instead of sitting in the timber yard, he went about the streets in her company, ask ing alms at the doors of the houses. The child called him "father," and they were ex tremely happv together But when they had pursued this mode of life for about five years, misfortune betel them. A theft having been committed in a house which they had visited in the morning. Powleska was suspected and ar rested. and the blind man was left once more alone But instead of resuming his former habits, he now disappeared altogether; and this circumstance causing the suspicion to ex tend to him. the girl was brought before the magistrate to be interrogated in regard to his probable place of concealment. ?4 Do you know where Michel is?" said the magistrate. ?? lie is dead'." replied she, shedding a tor rent of tears. As the girl had been shut up for three days, without any means of obtaining information fn>tn without, this answer, together with her unfeigned distress, naturally excited consider able surprise. ?? Who told you he was dead'" they inquired. 44 Nobody!** *? Then how can you know it." 441 saw him killed!" 44 But you hare not been out of the prison? '? I saw it, nevertheless!" ?? But how was that possible' Explain what you mean!" ?? I cannot. All I can say is. that I saw him killed." " When was he killed and how!" *? It was the night I was arrested." "That can not be; he was alivo when you were seized!" ?' Yes. be was; he was killed an hour after that; they stabbed him with a knife." 44 Where were you then'" 44 I can't tell; but I saw it." The eonfi lence with which the girl asserted what 9?emed to her hearer* impossible and ab surd, disposed them to imagine that *he was either really insane, or pretending to be so. leaving Michel a*ide, they proceeded to in terrogate her about the robbery, asking her if she was guilty. -Oh. no!" she answered. '? Then bow came the property to be found about you?" " I don't know; I saw nothing but the mur der " ?* But there are no grounds for supposing Michel is dead; his body has not been found '' ?? It is in the aqueduct." 44 And do you know who slew him!" 44 Yes?it is a woman Michel was walking v?-ry slowly, after I wa-? taken from him. A w un in came behind with a large kitchen-knife; but he heard her and turned round; and the woman flung a piece of gray stuff over his head, and struck him repeatedly with the knife; the cray stuff was much stained with the blood. Michel tell at the eighth blow, and the woman ?tragged the body to the aqueduct and let it fall in without ever lifting the stuff which stuck to his f?ee."' 44 As it was easy to verify these latter asser tions. they despatched people to the spot; and there the body was found, with a piece of stuff ??ver his head, exactly as she had described. But when they asked her how she knew all this, she couli only answer ?' I don't know." " But you know who killed him ?" '* Not exactly ; it is the same woman that put f ut his wjm, but. perhaps, he will tell me her i.am. to-night; and if he does, I will tell it to you." During the whole of the following night, with out allowing her to suspect their intention, they waurhed her. and it was observed that she never lay down, but sat upon the bed in a sort of leth argic slumber. Her body was quite motionless, except at intervals, when this repose was inter rupted by violent nervous *h<>cks which i>er vaded her whole frame. On the ensuing ilay. the m duent she was brought before the judge, she declared that she was now able to tell them the name of the assassin. ??But. stay." said the magistrate; "did Michel never tell you when he wa? alive, how he lost his sight '" "No?but the morning before I was arrested he promise 1 me to do so; and that was the cause of his death.'' " How could that be?" " Last night Michel camc to me, and he pointed to the man hidden behind the scaffo'.d ing on which ho and 1 had been sitting He uhowed me the man listening to us, wlien he ?ai I, ? I 11 tell yon all about that to-night;' and then the man " Do you know the name of this man ?" It is Luri. 1J.. wont afterward to a broad street that leads down to the harbor, and he entered the third house on the right " U hatis the name of the street?" I don t know; but the house is one story Ttr than the adjoining ones Luck told Cath arine what he had heard and she proposed to hua to assassinate Michel; but he refused, say ing. _ It was bad enough to have burnt out his s fifteen years before, while he was asleep nt your door and to have kidnapped him into the eoontry. Then I went in to ask charity, ^?Katharine put a pie:e of plate into my j"".kc,t that I might be arrested; then she hid But, since you saw all thi., why did you keep the plate-why did ut you give informa "But I didn't sec it then Michel showed it to me last night thi-^1 *hiU eh"al11 in,1ace Catharine to do ,,w her husb*?* and she had for raken him to erne to Odessa and marry aga.n 'iiemght fifteen years ago. -he saw MU hel, who had come to seek her She slipped hastily nt.. her house, .nd Michel, who thought she 'ut l /u f'" Uy J"Wn at to watch ; tyj Jn! then burnt out his - **? and carried hun to a distance " ] And is it Michel who has told vou this?" blood* ftn'l covered with me lii ,r i wk me ,y the hanJ showed ?*e an Wlth hw fin(?er}t? ed Si h winCk an<1- Ca,tharine Were arrest ThI, ?',bV 10 ""J*" I?l?. at but Howle^ka ijrf., 1 th" confessed the criB< Wh? ,1 7 sub3*<l??*ntly the circumstance ,k communicated and people all ar -ui..! .wp " 1.vKreat ?l ioU thee, I" r?.l li-twwn tlw 'f*n r"mplo .'.(iitjuny a, MriKtwm of two n.-w ' 'or the? on * M Railway with t?^ ?*>??

The poultry kept in the State of New York alone is probably about f3.000.0U0; the city of New York expends j no less than 92.000,000 per year for eggs. If every individual in this city alone would abstain from the use of eggs directly and indirectly for the space of one year, and t"hose eggs were at once ?nt under the hens and hatched, not far from %^,(MO,000 would lie added to the poultry value of those localities which send eggs to this vast city. Think of that ye gourmands who ask for rich pastry and cake. If you who merely visit, and you who reside in the city of New York, and order the eggs you consume to be placed in the hatching condition, this great addition to the wealth of the country would result. One egg dealer in Philadelphia sends 100 bar rels of eggs daily to the New York market. The sales in and about Quincy market, Boston, andbv the merchants throughout the city, in 1*48, were over SI,000.000. The consumption of eggs in Paris is equal to 140 j?er year to each individual; but in New York the average is about 70 to each person. At this rate of consumption it would take nearly 173,(>00,000 of eggs to supply the city of London for a single year. We have alluded to the great poulterer of Paris. M de Sord, in a late number oithis journal. His yards furnish about 40,000 dozens of eggs per week. His hens are never allowed to set; the eggs are hatched by steam, and every morning a swarm of chickens is ushered into the world of the vast feathered tribes on his premises. The Chinese are prosecuting this hatching by steam, or artificial heat, at Shanghai. The process they adopt ik very simple but efficacious, and the heat employed is rarely over 90 deg. At the principal establishment the proprietor?according to the work of an Englishman, Mr. Sirr?affirms that he frequently hatches 5.000 e*'gs per day. For some reason this artificial egg-natching has never succeeded in this country orTn England. Egg testing is an important branch of egg pro ducing. and the duty the dealer ow?*s to the pub lic should make him an adept in distinguishing a good egg from a p?>or one. There is no difficulty in discovering good or poor eggs. Take therii into a moderately dark room and hold them be tween the eye and a lighted candle. If the egg lie good, the light will shine through with a red dish glow; if otherwise, the color will be opaque or dark. Pickled eggs are excellent eating ; they are prepared by first boiling hard, then divested of their shells, placed in earthen jars, and scald ed vinegar poured upon them, seasoned with whole pepper, alsnice, ginger and cloves. When ; the pickle is cold the jars are closed, and the eggs are in capital eating order in a month after, and will keep for a year or more. The farm-house cpicyres hold this dish in high esteem. The egg comes into market in another shape also, in England at this moment. It is called ''condensed egg." It consists of the entire substance of the ! egg very delicately and finely granulated by pat ent process, after the watery property which the egg contains has been completely exhausted and withdrawn, without any change in its remaining character. All the nutrition of the egg is retained, and in this state it is very valuable to ship own ers, emigrants, and others. A single ounce of this preparation is equal to three eggs. The Chemistry of Common Life, by Professor John son. gives an analysis of the composition of the egg. Hence we learn that the carbonate of lime of the shell is one-tenth of its weight, the white J six-tenths, and the yolk three-tenths. The egg ' loses three-fourths of its weight by the evapora | tion of its watery particles. That this department of rural economy is capable of extension far be i yond Its present limits, and may be exerted to a | wide and profitable range, increasing wealth ! without any appreciable cost, is self-evident, and whether conducted on a large or small scale, the profits are considerable, and the risk and trouble comparatively small. C.esvr's Opinion or His Lttrirss in Wor sted Work.?In a review of -The Apocatasta sis," a work against spiritualism, published in 1-S5I, at Burlington, Vt., the Boston Daily Adver tiser tells the following story : i -'A most respectable, though not very cultiva ted lady, onc? invited us to a private exhibition of rapping* and scratchings. by which she be lieved that she held converse with her own de I ceased friends, as well as with many |?eople who had been illustrious in their day ami generation As we were looking about her simply furnished parlor, our eyes fell upon a screcn whereon an his torical scene?the passage of the Rubicon we will call it?was depicted in worsted work. Now. any one familiar with the specimens of this art, which are sold at our country fairs, will agree that, however interesting they may lieas monu ments of human |>atieuce and human eyesight, they do not jnwsess the additional interest of greatly resembling any terrestrial object., with which we are acquainted. The visage of Ca;sar on the screen was no exception to the rule; square patches of red were driven in to represent the flush upon his cheeks, black triangles, consisting of three stitches, did duty as his eyebrows, while his eyes were glass beads. that stared in different directions. As this screen was evidently the or nament of the house, we hazarded the observa tion that it must have taken a Ion i time to work it?or something of that sort. 4 Yes,' replied our hostess, ? but that is the least part of its interest; for Julius Ctrmr rame kere the other ectntng and told *3 it was a rnpital likeness!' " Fcll Length Painting Prevented.?The new invention of Steele frame for ladies' jupons to rest upon, is of such great weight for the bins that it is not likely to become general; yet for those who are liable to faint, it has a certain ad vantage. There is uo possibility of falling. Here is a case in point taken from a Paris paper: At one of the most elegant balls of the season in Rue St. Ilonore, there was a great alarm among the guests occassioned by the falling of a chan delier in the reception room. Fortunately no one was immediately under it at the moment, but some screaming with the surprise of the crush, a general laugh followed the discovery that no one was hurt. But. an instant after, an exclama tion drew all eyes to a corner of the apartment, and there stood the stout Baroness tie - her head fallen back and her arms hanging nerveless at her side*, but otherwise apparently on her feet. The steel petticoat sustained her as complete as the semi-pumpkin sustains the candle on the husk ing-floor. She had fainted, but only in bust. 1E7" Some fifteen or twenty custom-house em ployees, in the Boston custom-house, have le celved notice that their services would no longer be required. f?7"Speaking of eagles, says the Herald, the philosopher and patriot, Benjamin Franklin, warmly oppwed the adoption of that fieree and rapacious hird as our national emblem. Franklin stigmatized the eagle as a thief and a coward. CI7* Lord Napier and his secretary, Mr. Rus s?lf7 have accepted an invitation of the St. George's Society, of this city, and will dine with them on the *23d Inst., the anniversary of Eng land's patron saint. The day is to be celebrated on an unusually extensive scale by the society. [jy Miss Madelaine Smith, aged '21 years, daughter of a respectable architect in Glasgow, has been arrested for murdering a young Frei?ch man, Pierre Emile L'Angelier, to whom she was engaged, by giving him arsenic, which she was known to have purchased in more than one shop. Tb- motive for the crime is found in the fact that Miss Smith had another suitor in a more promis ing position of life than L'Angelier, who was a cleric. (P* An ingenious gentleman of Mobile, Mr. Leirner, has invented a register, which, when at tached to the car, indicates the speed at which the train Is going. Not oulycan the conductor, passenger or any one on the'train, see at a glance at what rate they are traveling, but the superin tendent at the end of the road, on examination, can ascertain what speed the train has made at any and every part of trip.

Theiired Scott resolutions, de nouncing the decision of the Supreme Court of the In i ted States, were passed. The Broadway Relief bill, which failed in the Senate, and the Trinity Church bill, which died in the House, were the only matters of importance which were defeated The bill to amend the banking laws so as to prevent the accumulation of bills of country banks was passed. \rr The newspapers In various parts of the country are publishing a story, originated by the Waterville (N. Y.) Times, detailing the discov ery of a singular sulrterranean passage in the vicinity of that village, in which were also found a quantity of ancient blunderbusses, much-bat tered swords, iron saucepans and goblets, and a ! helmet of brass and iron, the front piec-e of which bore the following letters in Roman characters: " D.
