The goods are genuine lours, Xormand Birr. The second "package of g?<ods"' received by our friend contained the following note of in troduction : Sir: The bearer of this, with the enclosed document, was consigned to me by somo one as yet unknown; still, as everything seems to be all right, I have thought best to assist him in reaching Rochester, and trust you are a friend to suffering humanity sufficient to aid him in consummating his plans, i. e. of reaching Can ada. For reference of my integrity in such a cause 1 would refer you to the Hon. Wm.

Everybody kisses every body, since the anti-fastidious days when the old woman saluted her cow. such a time of promiscuous and inordinate lip-service was never known. The sign and seal ot a ' strange intelligence' has become a hissing aud by-word ; the plaything of witlings ; the tool of satyrs; the lost jewel o: the elect. Zenobia's kiss is the "long and silent*' throb of her iminostsoul?unexpressed and inexpressi ble. save to those divinely akin ; but thecnances to be one in the indiscriminate circle, and, as each member drops off. must bend her stately head to the puppet performance?the kiss nil round?which would be most appropriately accompanied by the eiegant air of " Pop! goes the Weasel." Penelope herself is obliged to look sharply to the dew on her lips, or ten to one it will be spirited away on some graceless mousfueJu. The malady grows, and is becoming epidemic aud chronic. That last evening at the W s, the last stout woman in the file of leave-takers well nigh finished me. Zeus and Juno! what an ex pressionless. cavernous mouth yawned over mine ! Nectar and ambrosia ! what a moist ex plosion " For the next six weeks I will not kiss a friend. In the meantime the uews of heaven, the milk-fed lips of babies, and my heart s best prayers will perhaps bring back the*ravished privilege. A ki?s should be one of the holiest demon stration* of the soul; it should have a voiceless eloquence, ait electric tranquility, an electric reserve. It has no such thing. It pops a good morning, it sputters a good evening ; whizzes and fizzles on the right hand, on the left, here, there and everywhere. We are kept constantly on the defensive. At last, marked, cornered, and set upon, we Dlaat our teeth bard, and abide the sh jck as best we can. It is a high handed sacrilege, and I will enter my pro test r A kiss is no more an unconsidered trifle, to be rudely filched?torn warm and beating from its nestling place, and fritted from mouth to mouth^than is the purest prayer i offer, which God keep still inviolate' If we would preserve this gift a sweet and holy token, beautiful and sanctified to the beloved, we must use it wisely, with a noble chariness ??V.

[From the Cincinnati Gazette ] A fashionable young lady, residing on street, who has been affianced daring the past year to a gentleman in whom she professed to recognise her ideal in every respect, and who is really rery handsome, polished, refined, intel lectual, and generous?owing to one of those ?disseusions proceeding from slight cause, whioh the poet chronicles as prone to estrange " hearts that lore,"?compelled her betrothed, in order to preserve his pride and self-respect, to withdraw from the proposed alliance. Such a denouement was not dreamed of by our fair Belgravian ; like most women, she did not think that her lover oould leave her, even after she bad given him, or any man of spirit, abundant cause to do so; and when her mam ma heard how the currents of their affections had gone away, she feared for her daughter's heart, health, and happiness, knowing how deeply " Lucie'! had declared her trust. A note was placed in the hands of mamma, which she waa aware must contain the exegesis and adieu of the offended lover. llow could the foud parent break the sad news to her wayward but devoted child ; how prepare her for the sudden shock ; how cast the thunderbolt at her feet? The lady could devise no moans by which she oould avoid it, and was racking her ingenuity in vain, when one morning she discovered Lucy sitting list lessly and lovely in her boudoir, tearing a beautiful bouquet to piecos, because hr did not come, and relieving ner wounded vanity by half-tearful oompl&ints of his cruel neglect and inexcusable delay, and dropped the billet triste ?much resembling in style, and which we half snxpcct was an adaption from Armand's note to Marguerite Gauthier?into her daughter's lap. Lucie snatched it up. rocognizing the address at once, and ran her eye ovor the few expros sivo and bitter lines, then lot the delicate pa per fall upon the velvet carpet amid the scat tered leaves at her feet. Down dropped the toft white lids of her bril liant eyes, and the long lashes upon her satin cheek, while tho tears fell like summer rain upon her jeweled hands and the laceratcd flow ers ; profound sighs, as if they ront her heart, trembling through her lovely being; but all in wordless silcnce?profound and painful. "O, my darling,implored mamma, as she east herself weeping before her daughter, 4i do not so distress yourself. Forget him, dearest, he is unworthy of your love." " But then, mamma," (sobbing hysterically,) " but then?M 44 What, my precious one ?" 4' My new? 44 Never fear as to my new gallants?you will find enough. We will say you discarded him for his presumption." 44 You?do?not understand?it is moro than ?that?(with great effort, and speaking rap idly, as if to relieve her overcharged soul at once.) " my new dresses are all light, and I can't wear them now, so late in the season! Tn Fmxv Law Suit?The following ac count is given of the law suit which was noticed in the Philadelphia Bulletin some time ago : A novel law suit came off at Media a few days since. Wm. McMullen sued George Barrett, a barber, for malicious mischief for cutting his halrclnse to the scalp in the44 New York fighting style,"' the former claiming 8'J1) damage* The defendant proved by two or three witnesses that the Lair was rut according to order, whereupon the plaintiff with violence asserted that the evi dence was not true. The Squire upon this told the plaintiff that he was liable to action for perju ry lor such flat contradiction. Acting on this hint, the outraged witness at once insisted on sat isfaction, and the litigious plaintiff got scared ? turned defendant?and plead for mercy ! The Squire dismissed the suit with costs, and the bar to *r laughs over bis first experimental cutting hair in the '? New York lighting style.:} Bot Smothkkkd to Likath i* a Wheat Bi*. John Stubbs. jr., a lad about 14 years of age, son <>f John Stubbs, sr., of Wyanet, wa* smothered to death In a wheat bin, at the freight-house in tliat place, on Saturday last. He and other boys were playing In the bin while grain was running out or the bin into the cars, and running in froin abever. He sunk down into the cavity formed by the running out of the grain, and was immedi ately covered by that coming in from al?ove Every effort possible was made by Mr. Nichols and others to save him, but they were unable to get him out until * >me fifteen minutes had elapsed, when life was extinct. Owing to the quantity of grain in the the bin it was found to be Impossi ble to shovel it bark, and a hole was. therefore, cut through the weatherb a~dir.g auts'd \ through which the wheat was got ?ut, oat not in time to save the boy.?Princeton (III.) Democrat, Sept. 3. Thk Qrkat Forthcoming Rack ?The inter est in the forthcoming meeting of the renowned racers(Nichola* First and Charleston) on the 20th instant, over the Fashion Course, in a race of four mile heats, continues to increase throughout the country; and there Is but little doubt that the dav named for the contest will see a larger number of anxious human beings on the Fashion track than ha* ever been seen at a race since racing was known in this country. The previous exploits and history of the two horses?the fact that they are so owned and "entered"?that they represent the two great rival sections of the country, and the very general belief among experienced turf men that wither of them is much superior to any of the horses which Mr. Ten Broeck ha* in tand?combine to *urround the coming event with a peculiar interest. F.XTRAORDINARY SCIKMTIFIC KxPEHIMKNT.? The Reporter of the Boston Traveler, wMlo on his way to the Scientific. Convention at Montreal, witnessed an experiment bv one of thf learned members of that body, whlcn be describes thus: "We had a large body of 'savans' on the train; learned men, who, though modest, could not cover the scientific habit beneath any cloak of Smalltalk. I saw one large, red-fared, burly gentleman perform an adroit experiment at White river junction. He filled a tumbler half full of water, and by discharging a pocket pistol into the same, changed its color into a brand v l.u*. After holding the lirntid to the light, he deliberately drank It! I understand the exj>eriment is quite a CciniMlO. SlXcOLAB Kk?clt or a Kiss.?An English piper informs us that a girl of seventeen, resid ing at Bridgeport, Glasgow, named Catharine Burt, was brought to the central police office of that city, having had he neck fractured in a struggle aiising from a young man having at tempted to kiss her. No extra violence, It wa* said, had been used. Dr. M'Gill was in attend ance, aiid reported that the Injury sustained ap peared to be partial dislocation of one of the vertebrie of the neck, causing great difficulty in respiration and swallowing?he presumed, from p essure on the re?plratory nerve. She was or dered to the Infirmary, but her friends prefe r d tilting her home, where she now lie* in a dai - gvrou* state. Steps are being taken to have the young man apprehended. The Hoo Cholma.?The hog cholera is *aid to be very destructive In part* of Kentucky. A farmer at Millersburg has lost J) out of 40 hogs, and others in the vicinity over one hundred. Tne l.ving herds were pushed on to Covington as fast as possible, for the Cincinnati market. The hog 4- crop" will be very large In spite of the desea*e ?-eturn* to the State Auditor, fr^m each county, adding up 15o,<iUi more than last year. The sick ness is not seueral. It has api>eared also iu vari ous parts of Indiana The manifestations of the disease are very slmular to those In the human >>ody. Diarrhaa, loss of appetite, prostration and rapid siuking.
