THE PARISIAN "PISfH" ON MASON t^n si iiikM.. [Prom Le Charivari.] i A dense crowd blcoks up the pier at Southampton. A Teasel seems to be expected, for all eyes are turned towards the horison. Telo copes are lent for a pound sterling apiece, and a mere opera glass at three shillings. If a comet or an eclipse of the sun were to be looked at, optical instrument* would not be lent dever And still, there is neither a comet nor an eclipse of the sun to be looked at, but simply MM. Slidell and Mason, deputies from the South, set at liberty by the English Government and sent to England. " Ah ! I see the ship," said one English* BIB. " Where, where7" asked several voices. ' There, vonder?where mv finder roints." ' That's it!'' they all oriel. A load hurrah saluted tha appearance of the vessel. Halt an hour afterwards the remel entered the port. Everybody pushed to get forward, and many were nouriy stid^d.. When Mason and Slidell saw th* crowd, they were uuite stupified " How glad tbej are to see us!" eaid Slidell to hia companion in mkf>>rtana. ,-><1 tWa*,"*' replied Mason, "that this would be a favorable moment to ?aj a few words in season " lie was iust iteUim: ready to ocen his uumli. when a L^rribie hu-sicg prevented him from e?yin< a single word. What is me matter with them **' said Mason. ' They look dissatiefied." " But. no. the? are fcurrahini?-" As soon as they had landed, the crowd followed them. loading them with abuse. The reception was certainly not the thing they might have desired. The travelers at last took refuge in a hotel. " Dash me Mid Mr. Mason when they at length found themselves in safety, 41 they do not seem to reli?h us much " "Oh' there must be some mistake," said Slidell, ' they t9ke us for somebody else." At that moment a knock was heard at the door. " Come in." said Mr. Slidell. " I itn a correspondent of the Times," said the new comer, shutting the door behind him. ti XT-11 .L.a r J - / i en. n uat cui x au wr juu, nr: ' " I am in a great rage with yon." Wbj?" The Times imagined that we should hare war with America, and it wad delighted, because. ad I w*j appointed to follow the expedition, I could have sent them important communications. ?7 coming back to England jou deprive the English papers of all interest. "We are very aorrv. Mr. Corresnondant " replied Mr. Slidell, "to be disagreeable to you; but, as we were given our liberty, we were forced to accept it." u Nevertheless, yoa may make up your mind to be soundly rated by the London papers. ' 4. t>-? ?n xjui, sir . ' Yes, sir; you may expect it, I tell yeu." The Times' correspondent then withdrew, shaking his fist at the deputies. Hardly had he g;ne out, when a jreat fat tradesman came in like a madman. "Where are the Southern deputies?" he ajked. <t *rv.< j. ?i ? i? << uai u-j juu w?ui wua as : " Yoa want to ruin England !" " We never thought of such a thing." " You don't know, then, I suppose, that yoa hive made U3 lay out millions of pounds for nothing!'7 " We don't understand what you mean." Thinking that you would not be given up, we e- ke preparation for war to attack the northern States." 4 W a ipa c?rr mn/?K aKI I /??/!

If, instead of arming Teasels and raising seamen, we had employed those five millions in fortifying oar coasts, it would have been a hundred times better." ' Still, we wuuld remark that" " I want no remark.*. I have no patience with yoa." Nor I, either," said a sailor, who entered frithnnt Slkincr r Armiuinfi " Wh*t have y<?u got to ?ay against us?" asked Mr. Slidell. " I am an old sailor, and I gave up a place I bad in a manufactory to enter the service again, supposing that we should come to blows with the Yankees. But, confound yoa, here you are, an 1 everybody is hugging each other. What the devil were yea given up for?" " la not peace the beet thing in the world ?" 411 don't knjw. but I like war. What will become of ma now ? The Admiralty will discharge me, so that I "hall be out of place, and it will be all your fault. You ought to pay me damages, that you ought!" " And England also," said the tradesman And then both of them left, overwhelming MM Slidell and M?on wilh maledictions. " Well, what do you think of this, my friend Midell?" " I am i^aite confounded; bat I hop? at leut iney win let us ileep quietly " A moment after an individual entered, dreseed in a most singular manner, and addressed them very politely. *- <i?ntlemen,,: said he, " as all the English are longing to see you, I have come to ask you if you will make my fortune and yours ?" " How?'' " I want to carry 70a through the street, nd let yoa be <?eu for a certain suui Bui don't be frightened?yoa shall bare half." The deputies were dumbfounded, and they bad tome reason, we think. Ex-Govsrxor Pt*5i.m0t0.v'g Diath ? f>ime painful and distorted rumors having gained currency?to the effect that Gov. Pennington s death was caused by poison?it is proper to explain what was at first intended not to mention. Daring kis last momenta sulphate of quinine was prescribed in frequent doses It waa sent for, but the effect was so contrary te what was intended, that inauiriea war* immediately made at the druggists, remitting in a frank oomemion by the clerk, that he had through mistake, substituted morphine for quinine! Of course efforts were made to coiniteract the effect, bnt they were all nn ir i I i n* anrl Ik A n. i -?

It was to thi* cause that the nrofoand and insensidle stupor into which ne was thrown was due, and the incident should serve as a fearful warning to druggist*, in their delicate duty of preparing prescriptions. It ij needless to add that the clerk is greatly distressed by hit thoughtless blander, and is probably at (his moment suffering as severe a punishment from his own conscience as any one eould wish him to endure?iYivarX' Advertiser, Peb. 18. ir-^ jj j in more and Ohio railroad has been recpeeed by the United State* troops, under Geo. l ander from Cumberland to Hancock; and p.Mender trains are now running dally between those two points, connecting at Hancock with hff w u ?r H?"*rmto?r an<4 froj\ (hence by rail ta Baltimore, carrying tLe rolled mail Ths reopening of tbe above portioa of the road leave* bat ii miles of the line iuift the coetro! of the Confederate military authorities.

I fur it lied Ita iridrt however, wltb a three i *>1(10111 report of tb? tffair taken fiom tbo northern papaaa . m The Sax Francisco gossips, at lut dates, were greatly exercised over certain peculiar circumstances attending upon the rather sudden departure of the well known actress Miss Joey Gougenheim, for Australia. A correspondent of the Times tells the story thus: Her last engagement was not very profitable, and the oonaeqaence who she got in debt?that is, her agent Mr. Eddy, did. all the same?and his creditors learning that he intended to give them the slip, got oat warrants for his arrest, but being too old a bird to be caught in that way, a little plan was laid to frustrato their kind intentions, wbich was as follows: Miss .Joey embarked on board a Dutch ship bound to Australia, to sail next morning Mr. Eddy, with all tho baggage and funds secreted him self on board the clipper ship Carrier Dove, also bound out next morning for Cork?the Captain of which was to put Eldy aboard the Dutch ship outside the Bar Both ships sailed with the ebb tide, but on getting outside the ship# stood on different tacks, and were separated some miles. The Captain of the Carrier Dore, old sailor like, thought more of a mile gained to windward than all the actors and actr?Mec he ever saw, and instead of putting Mr. add j oa board tbc Dutch ship squared away with a cracking breeze, wbicn proceeding at hrft produced a look of wonder and openmouthed astonishment on tha part of Mr. Eddy, who demanded a compliance with the terms of the agreement, to which he received a short answer, and it was not till he became -juyiu'.'cu 111:11 ae was not in a very lttir way to see Miss Joey, that he guve away to rage indignation and despair. lie stormed up and down deck, swearing entreating and raving, but it was useless?" t? Cork and a market ' wa? the only alternative, and to Cork he has gone sure. On the deck of the Dutch ship a similar sceno was being enacted. When Miss Joey saw the state of affairs, and the truth flashed upon her that her ?rarrln>hn her ninnpv A - ~ ~ ~ ~ and her manager were heading fur Cork and she fur Australia, she let hersolf loo^e an went off into a touch beyond any thing she had ever given the public on the stage. iShe raved and stormed, and tore her beautiful hair, screamed and cried and offered unheard of sams to be put on board the Carrier Djve, but tbe Captain smoked his short Dutch pipe very complacently, and when the pilot left tbe deck Misa Joey had gone off in a tragic faint in the cook's arms, upsetting his teapot and playing the deuce with the Captain's breakfast, and is now probably a hundred miles on her voyage minus money, minus wardrobe, and minus lover?agent, I mean. Gen. Lave Explains His Position ? The Leavenworth (Kan.)

Archbishop II codes asd Slavery.?Archbishop Hughes has written a letter to the Journal des Debats of Paris, in which he says that he is not responsible for the article inTbe Metropolitan Record of New York reviewing M Cochin's book on slavery, which was translated into the French journal as his. and the pro-siavery tendencies of which drew upon him condemnations from all sides. But while ho declares that he is not the advocate of slavery, and has never written or said a word in favor of it, he is decidedly opposed to American abolition. Slavery is the ''sick man" of the United States.
