[From the Galvt-ston News.

July 29 1 Frr?m Dallas we learn that one or two white men hare been hang From Waxshachie we haTa seen a letter written by a merchant to his corresDondent in this citj, which gives some of the details of a conspiracy there to iL. ? 1 J J a 4L ~ a _ ujurucr iuo pvopio xin<i awintj iqo iowu, in a mtnner similar to that of Dallas. The plot ?rw to have been carried oat last Sunday. It was discovered, however, and two white men, wh->se names are not given, were hung on Saturday last, the 21 st inst. Some twenty odd negroes were to be hung next week. Mr. Cruder, who is just down from the upper country, confirms the accounts we have received from I>r. Pryor. lie states that in Dallas they have eight or ten negroes, who appeared to be ringleaders, in confinement. They will probably be hung la Waxahachie the discovery wa.<< made through the voluntary confession of negro woman belonging to Mr Marchbank* Throughout the whole region, embracing Dallas. Earns, Tarrant, and Dentoa counties, the testimony of the negroes haa been the same. They have all agreed in saying that they were to burn the houses and murder the women on the first Monday in August. They were then to attack the people at the polls, aided by the reinforcement of the expected abolition band, ar.d having got possession of arms, previsions, etc , fi^ht their way to Mexico. At n axahachie, as appeared by the confession of the negroes, h negro was detailed to 11king mwna 10 miuij mmsen 01 tut tutborship, resolved to inflict summary punishment While pacing along the street yesterday afternoon, in a buggy, he discovered the supposed author of the letters in a store, and alighting (from his wagon, he walked iu and oommenoed aa attack by firing at him with a revolver The individual attacked attempted to escape, and succeeded in so far avoiding his assailant m to dodge all but one shot, which took effect ia the shoulder, inflicting a severe but not a dangerous wound. The interference of other pnrues present put an end to the affair for the time being. ? Much excitement existed throughout the city, all the parties to the scandal being among the m'<st prominent and well-known citixens For reatons which will suggest themselves, we ^ forbear giving names, whicn may, perhaps, be made public through an investigation Tkmpfratthe or Water at a Depth op 2 Febt?The Columbus (<>.)

" i' L I*' 1 i Exciting Arrwn at Uamiltu*, Ohio.? Shooting of a Citizen by a Prominent lsiicye. ? The Cincinnati Gazette of August 4. *ay? , We learn by pa^engers on the train over the Cincinnati. Hamilton and Dayton Road Ia*t evening, that an exciting shooting affair took place in the city of Hamilton yesterday afternoon. The history of it, with the preceding circumstance, are about as follows : A minister over one of the religions congregations of ?ne ciry received several anonymous ?ommu'iications through the postoffice. in which the aufh?r professed a de.-ire to join his church, but did not wi<h to become associated with such persons as certain ladies of his congregation These letter.-* were finally shown to the husband of one of the ladies, a prominent merchant, who thought he recoguiaed the handwriting of another citizen, and subsequently charged him with being the author of the slanderous communication, and a rencounter followed This-occurred several days ago The IC finally camo to the knowledge of one of the most prominent lawyers of Hamilton. that the -aun anonymous calumniator had attacked his wife in the same contemptible way. and 4 a_t_; a- *- * ? * * principally of mature age and those allowed by their owners a good deal of liberty. The young one? were not allowed to participate in the plot; and many were not trusted with the secret at all Tbeir idea wag to bum all the stores where arms and ammunition were kept; ?.nd on elecfi.in lint ? f h a It f Y\ (if A ncriiftt wh^n tha were away from their farms and houses?the negroes were to ride, seize on all the arms, and headed by their white leaden, to attack the houses here and there, murder defenseless women, burn and destroy, and, finally, it is presumed, march off in a body toward Kansas Waxahachie was to hare been set fire to on the 6th?the same day Dallas and so many other places were fired; but an accidental fire in the town, that day, aroused the citizens.and the negro appointed to the deed became alarmed. and left, lie was to hare returned and repeated the attempt last Sunday, bad not the plot be?n discovered. A letter from Austin states that sereral attempts at incendiarism hare recently been made in that city. and that, in consequence, there is great excitement, and the citizens are patrolling erery night. at work all last week investigating tbe whole affair No one but those immediately interested knows who compose the committees, nor whera or when they meet, or wbat they are doing. The chief object is to ascertain what whites are at the bottom of the plot. No one else interferes in the investigation. r _ mi a* *. i i in tins, me county couri nas organized pa I trolson an extensive and well managed system The negroes' confessions?made apart and at great distance*?concur in the leadiDg points ; and all aver white men originated the plot ana directed their movements. They promised the negroes their liberty and their master's goods, etc., and to lead them to Kansas; the negroes were told also that the next President would be a Northern man, who would free them all. The ne?r<>es concerned in Ellis countv were ftrfiaing Effect* of Slckarii. Many of oar greatest geniuses have been person* of some remarkable physical weakness at some period of theirlives Kirke White always was. Coleridge was nearly all his life. Walter Scott wa.< a cripple, and both he and Lord Byron bad one. if indeed the latter had not two", club feet. Robert Hall was a martyr to a series of complicated disorders through life?a diseased spine?making him suffer the Agonies of a thousand deaths. It would seem, then, th-it suffering gives a peculiar soDsitivenesi to the whole nervous system, or is in some way connected with it, and that it is in this acute and sensitive state of mind that all the highest works and efforts of genius are produced In private life, as in public, the same is observable Who cannot call to mind some member of a family always ailing, always sick, and yet the most exemplary and influential member of the family oircle? In the roughest families in the backwoods such a child will grow up with tastes so pure and simple, habita so neat and so refined, and affections so elevated, ae to give all the highest results of a most finished education without going through any of the fashionable forms of city instruction She may be the weakest of (ho whole, and yet her wor<ls of love and gentleness light up the^ whole family circle, and rule and regulate and refine the whole. Or in the hnmbler walks of city life one such weak and sickly child will contrive to establish habits of neatness and cleanliness and refinement in an attic or a cottage, such as are ofton vainly sought in palaces and splendor. If she dies, her memory is fragrant. the whole family circle, perhaps the neighborhood, are really elevated by the memory of the plans and habits she first established, and of the atmosphere she breathed. But if she recover, then she carries up into life and vigor the neatness, order and quiet elevation first conceived through the refining processes of sufforing and of sorrow Our bear writers, our most ingenious inventors. our most acute metaphysicians, clearest thinkers and ablest discoverers, can generally trace some sharpening of the intellect and refining of the nervous system to a sickness or enfeeblement at some period or other of life. And thus it is that the sickness which weakens and wearies for the time, and incapacitates for exertion afterward, capacitates for a tenfold and higher excellence and usefulness So long as the depressing eflects of sickness lasted, it was wasting and hindering, but these soon pass away and leave a permanent elevation and improvement on every side. Nearly all sorrow has in it the same tendenr.V Whilft it l?<ti it flonraatna J . ? -- ? ?

It is said that in nature, but for the occasional seasons of drought the best lands would soon degenerate, but these seasons cause the lands t) suck up froui the currents beneath, with the moisture, also those mineral manures that restore and fertilize the soil above. It is thus with sickness and with sorrow, once surmounted, tbey fertilite the character and develop from the deep fountains of the human heart a joy and fruitfalness not otherwise attainable. Even error, though while it lasts, sickening, deadly,and destructive to the individual.when seen to be erroneous, and forsaken and rejected, produces a moral sensitiveness against error moat beneficial to anniatv Th? ? ? ? *-j *MV i vuv mvu from tyranny begets the highest, purest and best defended and defined form* of liberty, and from the depths of sin and degradation the returning prodigal rises to a higher place in oar esteem, than the elder brother who never transgressed the commandment, and the recovered sheep gives more joy than the ninety and nine that went not estray Thus it ha? been that the greatest event in history ha* been the advent of iiim who came to seek and to save that which was lost.?thil. Ledsrer. O " Ixkleoajcics or Speech.?The following hints from the i\l ere ere burg Review, in an article on Extempore Preaching, are worth attending to :?Urent care must be taken to acquire a habit of asing good language. The UiBn who goes slip-shod six days in the week, will not walk with ease and grace on the seventh in new shoes If the language of every day life is not well chosen and correct, it will be in vain to attempt to speak well in the pulpit, or even to write well in the study. This will partly explain why solecisms, vulgar phrases, and idioms, common-places and caut expressions. Ac.so abouuU in tne public efforts of some men.

What conduce* greatly to form thw faculty, is the frequenting good uipany?tbat U, as Mr. Hautain observes,the jociety most distinguished fur elegance of language and fine manners. There one learns to speak with correctness and grace, almost without stody, by the mere force of habi*. But as the young preacher, for various reasons, may not always be able to do this, he can in a great degree supply the place of it by cultivating the society of the masters of his language in books This company is always accessible, and always voM/ltr /> urvAalr' OA n >a to ???-? ? ? | t vxvi j iv rpvna, or/ IUV10 IO UU OAOU9C 1UI UC* gleet in this particular. The perusal of the beit authors serves directly to supply the speaker with a copious fund of words, apt and elegant, aud. moreover, indirectly, by the elevation of the thoughts, the march of the sentences, and the majestic flow of the ideas, furnishes an fJflirtuM, or divine glow, which prepares the orator for his intellectual labor, no matter how foreign may be the subject read from that about to be handled by the speaker ?n addition to this, we would reoommend storing the memory with the rhtf* d'auvrt of the best writers, the poets especially, to be recited mentally or aloud, daring the daily walk or ride, by which one beoomee habituated to the niceties of the language, and, as it were, mnlr ai thflm Kit nwn- nor miu* ara f/\i*a aK. serve that no practice will more rapidly cultivate the tastes and refine the whole man." School Hocks akd Exercise ? Mr. Edwin Ch&dwick, who was appointed by the English Government to inquire into the excessive labor of young persona in cotton factories, has gone further, and the results he obtained led him to propose measures, which were in part executed, ror redncing the working time of children under 13 years of age to six hours a day, and for insuring their attendance at school the residue of the time?say three hours. The children under this provision are called "half timers;" and it turns out, according to Mr. Chadwick's i investigations, that in well-eonduoted schools their attainments are quite equal to those of the "full timers," who attend school six hours daily; while in aptitude tor the application of their knowledge they are said to be superior. As they rain in bodily condition by the reduction of physical labor, so they do in mental condition by the reduction of tne time devoted t > mental labor. The remedies recommended by this gentleman are the reduction of the ordinary school hours by one-half, and the devotion of them either to manual labor or gymnasties. lL/~ A Virginia Census taker writes: "I have | eiied i,WU to S.50U gates, let down 1,500 to 1,800 pairs of bars, and any number of fences; have got otl aud on my horse from 50 to HO times a day, done any amount of talking in tbe way of eiplanation. made couatleM calculations, 4c., Ac Tbns far I have not had an unpleasant word with a human belug, but my patients and temper have been severely tried " 1?7" A Philadelphia correspondent aaya: "The visit of the Ch-cago Zouaves, and the exhibition of their proficiency in the regular manual, a* well a In their own peculiar drill, hat arouaed the spirit of the military of our city Already ate} * are being taken to form a company, to be compna-d of young men. willing to carry out th? rulea and regulatlona aa adopud by our vUitoia.'
