Paris ij always?a* Pliny said of Africa of old?firing birth to soma extraordinary novel ty; and one of the most extraordinary we have ever met with is given In a late number of the Courrier des Etats I'nis. in which we axe in formed that a young ladj hu chosen a most singular occupation. She has turned newspa per?something, as the Courrier romarks, after the fashion in which barbers were the newspa pers of the Middle Ages. Figaro, as he de ecribes himself, is a general retailer of informa tion. one setting forth all *he news of tho day? dealing in "matrimonial* '?useful to all class es. Something of this order is the Female News paper in question. Every afternoon (continues our authority) a young woman of 21 years, tall, and of exquisite figure, attractive even at a distance, slightly pitted with small pox, yet with eyes and mouth which have uot lost a whit of expression?such a young lady may be found every afternoon, gli ding from cafo t<> caio in that peculiar part of Paris principally inhabited by students and thorn connected with them?known as tho Latin Quarter Everybody knows the girl, and every body speaks to her. She is brilliant in conver sation?in rcpartoc?in salutations. Sho enters a cafe, passes from one tablo to another, and without eeremony begins at once to give the news of the day. She has all the gossip of the aehooln of law and medicine, the scandals or small talk relative to tho students and their " flames"?the marriages and divorccs. And, while communicating all this in a most amusing aud fascinating manner?her eyes and ears are open?ahe picks up news from the guests. and thus renews her stock in trade of gossip. But how does she make it profitable' This M the most lingular part of her most singular business. Everybody who has been in Fiance knows the five lumps of sugar which are brought with every cup of coffee?throe for the cup. and two extra ones, which are either put into the f;laaa of water or carried away by Frenchmen, n the pocket. On concluding her gossip, the fair female journal takes these two lump*; they are her perquisites. Jeanne (or Jenny) is the name of the living jonrnai; the students call her Jeanne aux Canards We are sorry to say that Jenny Humbng is tho nearest translation we can give of the name, though it must be admitted that, as Dolly Fudgo says ot" French abuse, in Moore's poem, it is not so bad in the original. However this may be. whenever Jenny Humbug enters a rafe there is a general demand for her. Everybody wants Jenny ; sho is pulled from table to table, there is a general uproar at her extraordinary " local items," ' editorials," and "telegraphs," to say nothing of the *-ndvers " Jenny never leaves a cafe, after a short visit, without bearing with her one or two pounds of sugar, collected lump by lump. Jenny lives by sugar. Tho Cafe de 1'Odm buys it all of her, and she ia growing rich. Of course there is a storr connected with her. Jcany Lind. with all her talent, had to have a story; they all have a rigmarole yarn now-a-days. and of course Jenny Humbng, with such a name must have one. She is a virtuous and spotless scion of something or other, and is collecting a dowry wherewitn to marry a lover to whom she is pas sionately attached, a young salesman in Paris, and who is to wed her when she shall have col lected five thousand pounds?not sterling?but of sugar. It is fortunate for the editorial craft thafcsuch newspapers are not started on a grand scale in this country Wo should soon have to shut up shop if they were. The press, as the Bni. kumville Flag St.dFonce remarked, "is a mighty Indian?it corrects vicc, vindicates the Consti tution, and inserts advertisements"?but it eoald never resist such opposition as that of pretty women turning themselves into prome nading newspapers, dinging forth paragraphs from ro*y lips, dating editorials from sparkling eyes, and doing up "notices" in a style of ami Hole coquettish preference. Long may it be before paper thus comes into opj?osing interests with the muiltu! We have always warmly advocated extending the sphere of women's ac tion, but as we said before?and we didn't mean to?there are certain fields not as yet ap propriate t? her. and that of journalism in per s-u and by word of mouth, is one of them. La dies. if y?u have any gratitude let it aione !? Philadelphia Hull* tut. ? . ? j [ VcGKTAki.c Cellars.?It is difficult to un derstand on what principle so innny m.irket gardeners endeavor to carry on their business without the necessary convenience of a Vegeta ble cellar. Without this, even in the summer, he most of necessity be very much at the mercy of trurksters, who, too laxy to cultivate for them selves. manage to pick up a smart living on the industry of others. With the keenest judg ment, it will frequently hapnen that a gardener gets a large quantity of produce together, with the expectation of a quick sale, and finds to bis mortification that everybody else had. like him, bought a great load, aud the consequence is, that he must sell at any price, or spoil his goods for want of storage for a night or two. In the fall again he must sell out; there is no help for it, aud that at 2o per cent, below actual prices, and 60. and often 100 per cent, below winter prices. His produce once disposed of, then he has nothing to do for four or six months, but squan der what he toiled so hard for. and all for the want of an occupation, which the selling of his own produce would give him, supposing he had a cellar to store it in during winter. For a market gardener, we consider a good warm cellar as necessary a part of hu conve nience* as a horse and wagon. The following method of preserving vegeta bles in winter by the Russians is given in an early number of Loudon's Gardeners' Maga zine. and may not be ill-timed at this season. We have kaown cellars of the best description built under ground, the roof arched with brick work, and covered with at least three feet of ?oil: " Cabbages are preserved in the gardens (set clo** together to save room) by building a root over them ot' old boards, covering them with the old dnng of the hot-beds. or trie cleanings of ibe garden, aud the shovellingover of all the earth from the adjacent beds. If the grjO!:d is dry. and it is possible to dig downwards, the house (if it may be so called) will be warmer; bat the best situation is the brow of a hillock Two tubes or chimneys are erected to let out the confined air when it thaws, or towards spring Leeks, celery, in short all similar reg^ etables may be preserved in the same way. The chimney must be stuffed up when it freezes.'

A gentleman writes from India the following acoount of his escape from Delhi: When the alarm was first given that the troops in Delhi had mutined, I was enjoying my meal, but from the atrocities that a friend of mine came in and told me had been committed, I left my eating, and, looking out. saw seven or eight men dragging a female down the street by the hair of her head, which was long and black. I could cot look upon that without a feeling of horror, not of what would become of rnysoll?I was a man?but for tho other poor women who were iu Delhi at the time. I went into the house, and soon returned with a rifle, intending to indict punishment on one, at least, of the miscreant*; but I no sooner appeared at the ?erandah than I was shot at by a black ; but he missed me, and for which kind consideration i I shot him through the heart. About a dozen ruffians now made an attack upon my house, and began battering at tho door. I called my friend who had given me the news and giving him a revolving pistol, to gether with my two servants, each armed with a gun. and myself armed with a revolving pis tol in one hand and a sword in the other, (these wore the arms of poor Harry,) I walked boldly down to the door and let tbein in ; as I opened the door I retreated behind it. Tho blacks came rushing in pell mell. and were rushing up tho passage, when my friend and two servants came from their ooncoalment and fired at them steadily, which brought threo of them down, then clubbing their guns they rushed on tho surprised blacks. At the momont the attack was wade by my roup Ue main. 1 stepped out from my hiding-place behind the door, and shot tho hindmost villain down with my pistol, and then with all the iury of ten thousand devils. I went to work with my sword, wounding here, killing tboro, and shoot ing those that stabbed at me. At last tboro were but five blacks loft, and they forced by mo and gained tho street I, following close behind them, shut the door violently, thereby shutting them out. I wont back aud found that all three of my assistants had been so mortally wounded that I despaired of their lives, and my fears wore quickly dispelled by two of them dying shortly after in the most frightful agony?the other?my dear friend Hancock?dying shortly after. After our killings*) many of their men I knew that the house would bo attackod and no mercy shown ; so I discolored my faoe. aud assumed the garb of one of the dead blanks, and as I could speak their languago I thought I should ass for a black. I got out by a back way and egan hallooing and hooting, and running and going about where the other blacks were, so by theso means avoided suspicion, incurring tho greatest)danger of being recongnised. I met two or three times with a single black in a lone ly place, and such was my hatred of them that I could not restrain myself from killing them. ? >ue time, after I h id killed a rasn and was looking over him, a body of blacks came up and would have struck iuo to tho earth, had I not called out fiercely in their language that I would avenge him, and, suddenly starting from my landing-place, callod out to au imaginary fellow to stop, swearing ho was the murderer. I bounded away. the others with mo, but failed to catch the fellow. When tho blacks made a sortie I smuggled myself in with them, and came over to the side of my friends, where I was warmly recoived. I got woundod in tho engagement, but revenged myself upon them, for I fought with all tho desperation of mad ness. There i t such a place as Oshkosh.

Norwegian Milk.?Bayard Taylor tolls the following anecdote of a "Landlady" in Nor way : My friend wanted a glass of wine, but tho old woman said she had nothing but milk. Wo were sitting on the step* with our pipes, short ly afterward, when she said : 44 Why don't you go int?? the house V 44 It smells too strongly of paint,'' I answered. t4 But you had better go in." said she, and shuffled off. When we en tered. behold' there were three glasses of very good Maosala on tho table. 4,IIow do you sell your milk 1 asked her. 4aThat kind is three shillings a dram." she answered Tbe secret probably was that she bad nolioense to sell wine. I wa< romii d >d of an incident which occurred tome in Maine, during the prevalence of the prohibitory law. I was staying at a hotel in a certain town, and jestingly a*ked the landlord : 4-Where is tho Maine Law ? I should liko to tee it." 44 Why," said ho, 441 have it here in the house," aud he unlocked a back room and astonished me with tho tight of a private bar, studded with full decanters.

He said he had been a soldier in bis native country, and had seen a great deal of hardship, but wedded life was more than he could bear, aud he declared If he could not get rid of his " frau" that he would drown himself. The wife of the German professed to foci a roinautic attachment for him at home, mid even followed him across the sea. Touched by bur devotion, and convinced of her sincerity, he married her here some six months ago, and has since led the lito, to use his own language, of a 44 icetle b>g mit to tin pail to him all de times."
