ITT SINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. A HEN NUNNERY. The subjoined on the "Patent Back iMuve nient Sell-acting Hen Persuader"' id good. Friend Brown, of Philadelphia, thinks of pur chasing some eggs of a comely female huckster, in order to test the egg-hatching machine: " Of all friend Brown's friends, none was so earnest a friend as friend Smith especially in the matter of this egg-hatching machine: he would run in several times per diem to note I rogresa, and finally when completed, natur ally recommended friend Brown to go at once to the comely female huckster in Jersey market, and procure a plentiful supply of those fresh white eggs. Friend Brown went, secured all the huckster had, and obtained the refusal of a few dosen more. Friend Smith was. to use an expression of my daughter Sally, who asso ciates with world a people, "perfectly charmed'' on hearing this; he assisted friend Brown in placing the eggs carefully in the machine; he watchwi the thermometer assiduously; day after day paying repeated visits. One morning, on coming up from the cellar, there was acloud on his brow: friend Brown noted it. " Why. Jacob !" said friend Brown to him; ' what is the matter with thee' Thee looks discontented." .44 Ah ' James,' answered friend Smith, "I hogin to have doubts *' "What >/'*.% thea doubt*" inquired friend Brown. " The ability of the egg-hatcher ! Five days have I watched the e^gs, and I do not note any Fjmptoius of the chickens coming into the world " " Thee is impatient, Jacob; thee suroly knows that eggs woni't hatch in fivo days." " Ves, yes!" answered friend Smith. " But there should be symptoms. I tell the candidly, I have no faith in thy egg-hatcher " Then speaking out earnestly. 44 I don't believe one ot t?e will hatch, not one ! I am sure of it, so *ure that?I see thoe needs a new hat?well, I will give thre a new hat if one of those eggs hatch, on condition thee gives wr one if they do not. Dues theo comprehend ?" " 1 do. Jacob." said friend Brown; li and I foresee that thee will have togive me a new hat I foresee it " '? Friend Smith agreed lo wait until a cer tain time, so as to give the eggs a fair chanee, and went his way rejoicing; feeling so elevated at the thought of obtaining a new hat, that lie already had determined to give his old ono to the rx.rter in his store. 4' ?' hy was he so certain? 41 A few weeks before friend Brown came to a crisis with the egg-hatching machine, friend >inith had learned from the comely huckster in the market that in order to insure her hens laving eggs regularly, she penned up the hons Ay thtmstl?*.%, andfriond Smith knew enough about hens to know that though they would lay eggs under these circumstances, yet that these eggs, needing the vital principle, never would hatch! and being fond ot fun, as well as greedy of having a new hat, he had laid a long train solely to attiin this end; he appeared interest ed in the egg-hatcher, tended it. recommended iriend Brown to buy these particular eggs, and ?now he wio waiting for the hat. jBut the excellence of the joke seemed so great in his eyes that he could not forbear telling friend Simms all the particulars, by a great oversight neglecting to enjoin secresy of friend Sirnms, who was so much rejoiced by this latter, that he went at once to friend Brown of the egg hatcher. and told him the whole story. Friend Brown laughed very hard, but toward evening might have been seen baying eggs of a country man, who wasn't acquainted with the ?' occlu sive system." These eggs friend Brown sub stituted for the ones purchased from the female huckster, and said nothing. *? Friend Smith waited for the appointed time, ani then claimed the hat: friend Brown begged for three days' grace, which was granted very cheerfully. At the expiration of the three days, he called agaiu. Friend Brown invited hiin to come down in the cellar: down he went, hearing all the way certain "pseep, peep-ings ' that he didn't like at all, and at last saw tour new-hatched chickens. 4' Friend Brown," said he. 4- thee can take the hat!" And at onoe handed over a five dollar bill walked up stairs, and as he passed the female huckster in the market, on the way to his store, muttered?"Thee is a humbug with thy hen nunnery!" A Womsn'? Revenge ! IFrom the New Orleans Cresreut, April -JO.] .**t Charles street. in the aristocrattc and fa>h i?,table neighborhood of Canal, is becoming fa mous for scene* of startling in^ortancc This iit<>rning we are again called upon to notice a ?tabbing rase, which only wanted a change of time from day to night, and the total annihilation ft the victim, to equal the celebrated Burdell tr-i'-dy The first question of an eercntric friend of ours, I whenever he hears of a diffl ulty, row. or any- I approa< hing the tragic, invariably Is H ho'? the wonun?" always taking for granted a woman must beat the bottom of such things. Its appropriateness was illustrated in the tragedy m Charl?*s street, yesterday, for a woman?

Andrews is a y xing artist of lofty aspira ? ?*n.and Byronic exterior, and as he some two vears ago took rooms at the establishment of the >>eautiful and fascinating widow, It may. wiibout ?uurh stretch of imagination be snppocn/d that a unity of sentiment soon sprung up between two a* u eongrnial spirits They lovtd. but did not get married?they pro ?r?*sed on tue mutual confidence plan for nearly two years, when their honeymoon Wgau to wane, ?>r perhap? became obscured by the overshadow *ng influence of the comet, which is now whisk '"g bis ponderous tail over our planet, killing the ? ally blossom* and destroying, not only one fruit *.rop throughout the Union, but the sugar crop of "Jr own beloved Louisiana Andrews abandoned 'ne ideal, gave up all thoughts of ever reaching 'be round of the artistic ladder, when his admi nsg countrymen would concede to him the un questioned right of wearing the unappropriated jutnt.eof a Michael Angelo or a Rubens. He became practical. The charming widow was flush of the '? sordid lucre, and with true Jarksonianeuergy and will ??.? laid his plans for a transfer of the deposits, which he soon accomplished, and instead ot erecting a villa on the bunks of the Lake of Como with the widow's funds, he established two d i g iter rent ype naloons?one ?t 3 g{ Charles street, and the other one at No. 10, a few doors from tbe True Delta establishment. This was not all?the cun of the charming widow's misery was not yet fall?the last drop that overflows the golden goblet, like the last ounce that breaks the < amel ?lark, was poured in when the unfaithful Andrews deserted her, which he did a short time ago. and married a Miss Hotfner. We have now stated the case as it was yistsr day morning, and will give the sequel in as frw w-jfds as possible. Mrs. Charles, it seeius. mad up her mind to wrmlt her vengeance on her faith '"** "wain by assaulting him. and then end life's 'roubles l?y killing herself. She procured a beau tiful pearf-handled danger, we believe at Gulon's, and crossed the street towards the entrance of So.

As he turned and relied she inflicted two more wounds on his left a-ui, and before the by.standers that thronged the sidewalk, at the time, could interfere, she gave b in another stab in the thigh, when the dagger dropped t orn her band. \v ith tbe utmost cool ne?s she then forced her way through the crowd, no one tn it attempting to interfere with her, and pro^?ed-d to a carriage in waiting at the next rorn?r and was driven rapidly to her home.

On his cross examination, the defendant said he used to take Miss Walcott to concert;; went once to hear Jenny hind, and another time to near the Hutchinsons. The young ladv'.s next scheme toenlist the sus ceptibilities of the uniinpresaible Snow, was a regular coup d'etat. ?Daring the summer she came to my office andaskrd meto^otoa lecture with her; I thought it would not look well for us to commence going mil agreeing to quit; she said piopl" would not talk any more about us than they had (tone ; that she had no one to go with and she would like to go; told her I did not wish to go with her any more ; did not wish to mislead inv friends any more,as I had no intention of getting married ; she said she loved me, and she thought I had seen the time 1 loved her; she thought I would be sorry; said I, Miss W. would you mar ry a person wbodid not want von ' said she would not; <1 id not attend her to any place of worship or amusement; at no time except that mentioned about her loving me. &c., did we ever have any conversation about love nor did I ever tell her that 1 loved1 her; no words equivalent had ever passed; told her in presence of Mrs. Whticber, that if 1 ever got married I would marry a lady who cou d sing and play ; Miss Walcott does not Play or sine ; spoke also at Mr. Whitcher'* about long courtship; remarked 1 did not believe in long courtship; that if 1 ever married 1 would not court over six months."

"Tom Hand Acaiii.?In the Mayor's Office at Philadelphia, on Tuesday, an affecting scene occurred illustrative of woman's truth and con stancy under wrong and long suffering. The accuser in the case was a M r* Nhuster.wife or Jacob Sinister, who, under the alias of Tom Hand, was some years since convictcd of stcalin" the Government jewels from the Patent Office in a*hington. It will be rememliercd that among the stolen property was a tlask of ottar of ros**! pre*ente?l to the I nited States (government by the ? ultan of Turkey,L,and that the exquisite taste which led the robber to profusely perfume his person with the rifled o./or, furnished the clue to hi# ultimate conviction. Subsequently to his re lease M.uster went to New York, where he was convicted of issuing counterfeit money, and sen lenccd to ten year* imprisonment in Sing Sing. During the entire period of his incarceration. h!s wite. supported her family, consisting of hers-lf and her two daughters, at times by keeping a store, and also by taking boarders. During the first term of his imprisonment, she travelled re peatedly to Washington, and brought every in fluent e to liear upon the President to obtain a par don, but without success. When he was confined at Slug Sing, she renewed her efforts with unre mitting diligence ; and, at length, moved by her importunity and her t?*ars. Gov Clark relented and signed the pardon Thanksgiving dayShus ter returned to his family in Philadelphia Vc cording to the affidavit of Mrs. S., whose utter ance was choked with tears, a short time after his release from prison, he wrote to her that a certain sum of money must be sent to hiin by a given date, or he would sell a burial lot containing the rjruains of their two children, and have them thrown out wherever the purchaser might direct Subsequently she gave him S50 on a promise to leave her forever, but he returned, dismissed most of her boarder*, treated her badly, threatened to ?ell her furniture, turn her daughter out of doors and injure herself. The two daughters of these parties were at the Mayor's office, the younger clinging lo the father and charging the mother with perjury, the elder (lb years of age) confirm ing the statement of the mother.
