Foreign Newi. The steamship Cambria, with one week'a later HtwB liuiu i^ui may i/c t Aj'ct ?vu iv aiinc civ this port hourly. We shall learn by her of the fate of the city of Vienna, which was at the last accounts surrounded by a hostile army, and of the prospects of republicanism in Austria generally. Clkurcb Speculation, Church Spoliation? WUi'.rc are the Revenues? We found it necessary, a few days since, to give publication to a few simple and uadeuiable truths concerning " his lordship," as he was recently called in Halifax, John, Bishop ot New York, or, in common parlance, our old friend. Bishop Hughes. We doubt not that those truths were unpalatable to him, and we would not be much surprised if he were 01 opinion that a mine was sprung under his leet when we gave to the public the sententious expressions which he used to the assembled clergy of his diocese, when i was intimated to him that they desired him to lay bt fore the Convocation of the Catholic Church, which is to assemble in Baltimore soon, their wish that canon law, the only safe-guard of the inferior rlerav iiom the oereecution of the bishoii. would be introduced into the diocese of New York. We do not mean, on this occasion, to re cur to that particular mutter, although we may do bo at an early day, in order to show, more con clusively, the tyrannical, despotic, arbitrary, and we might Bay, barbaroui, manner in which the pious, amiable, and eloquent John, Bishop of New York, exercises lus spiritual authori ty in his diocese. Our object, at the present time, is to seek information on one or two points connected with the administration of the Catholic religion in this diocese, especially in the city of New Y ork, and to a lew matters connected therewith. In the first place, we would like to know in what manner the income arising from St Patrick's Cathedral, in Prince street in this city, is disposed of? l?e|^>rt says, and, we believe, with a good deal of truth, that it cxceeds the large sum of thirty thousand dollars per annum. This iscertiinlv a verv handsome revenue, and we have no doubt it might be increased a few thousand more, if the numerous shillings and sixpences that are showered into the collecting boxes on each Sabbath were added. What becomes of this vast annual cflenng of the faithful T The other Catholic Churches in the city do not receive a cent of it, by way of donation, loan, or otherwise. Many if not most of them are up to their heads in debt: indeed, we are credibly informed that poor people who, on the faith of the Catholic Church in this diocese, have lent every dollar they possessed in the world to church' s in this city, have, in consequence of not being repaid, been obliged to seek bhelier in t^e almshouse and become almonees of the county for their daily bread ; and this, too, wl lie the revenue of St. Patrick's Cathedral is upwards of thirty thonftand dollars per annum, exclusive of the pickings thrown in the collection boxes on the Sabbath. We have no doubt that many of those poor j>eople would like Johu, Itishop of New York, to inform them, in his wisdom, when they are to be paid back the earnings of years < f hard toil and deprivation which they Lave invested in this manner. Will he not be as explicit with them us he was with the sixty assembled inferior cleigy of the diocese of Ntw York, when he informed them that he was entnely independent of any man for the commission which he holds ; that he derived it directly from God; that he would have no canon law, and that he " would w ced his diocese of all w ho wished to have it introduced." There is another point on which we, and no doubt the public likwise, desire a little information. It is in respect to th* burial ground in Lletenth street A large plot of land was purchased by Bishop Hughes in that section ot the city as a burial place for the dead of his church. It was purchased at a time when property in that region was far less valuable than it is now, say about ten years since. We will not be particular as to a year or so, but it spears to us that it was at or about that tune that th*t piece of land was purchased as a cemetery. A friend of ours buried a relative in that ground, and a* it was consecrated fit his holiness. liiKtion I1nr/hr? flip friflrncr K irn of eleven dollar* wag d< niand< d ior the privilege of interment. So fur go good. About three years alterwards he returned from a distant part ol the country, and degired to t rect a tombstone to the iiurnory of his departed relative. On visiting the place ngaln. mighty changes and revolution? hart evidently t?k*n place during his absence. Although he had particularly taken the mirks and bearings of the particular grave, he fould not find it. At length he inquired of the grave-digger. *' bha* your honor," said he, in reply to the inquiry a?ld et-wd to Inm, ?? -ure there have been three or four more bodies tinned over him atnoc tiwn and aw?y he went, prodding tbeground, be re and there, w;th a long ran rod, to find x plot of six fed by two that had not beea very recently excavated for the receptacle, temporary to be sure, of a body, at a charge of eleven dollars. Now, when we take into consideration the large area comprised within the limits of this burial ground in Kleventli street, and the positive and undeniable fact that two-thirds of it has l>een used lor burying purposes, not once, but twice and three times, the inquiry arises, what becomes of the tremendously large revenue which this burial ground has turnifhtd to John, Bishop of : New York 1 How many pluelds for Ireland's , defence, at five hundred dollars each, would it furnish 1 The expenses attending this ground have j been little or nothing. It has always been exempti ed from city assessments, and the poor priest who, in summer's sues and winter's srows, had to per1 form the regular burial service, was paid only ihree hundred dollars a year. What, we would , ask, has become of the tremendously large sums of money which John, llishop of New York, has j ! received from this source alone, throwing aside the princely revenue of thirty thousand dollars a year from the Cathedral ? We thn k the Catholics of New York should demand an answer to those questions from the Bishop of New York. They 6heuld demand information of (lie manner in which this annual revenue of the Cathedral, and the proceeds of the Eltventh street speculation, have been disposed of, when the other churches are bankrupt, and the lenders of money to them forced,on accountofaonpayment, to seek refuge in the almshouse. If all is fair and honest, there will be no hesitation in i answering. | Ihf Condition or tlie lliitlsh West India Islands. We have received a mass of very interesting and valuable information from numerous correspondents in the British West Indies, relative to the present condition and prospects of these highly important islands. Accompanying the letters of our correspondents, are several files of West India papers, by an examination of which we derive considerable light thrown upon the allaira of the i>. itish colonies. This part of the world possesses, at the present moment, a considerable portion of intercut, in an historical, moral and political point of view. To up, in the United States, the contemplation of the prospects and progress of these sugar colonies, i.*, under many aspects, of singular and special interest. These islands have been for seme time past, the arena of a doub'ful experiment, entered into by the British government and nation, ! in relation to the best policy to be pursued towards (hat [ ortion of the African race which, from a state of death, servitude and misery in their native land, are given up by the barbarous rulers to \thom they aie subjugated, to be carried by Europeans from their own n&tive fifld of slaughter to the field of West Indian labor ana subjection. It 's an escape to them from death, or rather an exchange of servitude, as fielH and domestic servants, in lieu of being brutally massacred, or moro brutally ill-treated on their native shores by their own colored oppressors. Thus transported, and under such a state of things, to the fields of the sugar plantations of the western world, they have be" ci-me an object of serious consideration and great political agitation to the white race, among whom they have, as above shown, been for centuries past, in the manner and from the causes above men. tioned, introduced. It is still a question, we may say, with the world at large, whether the policy pursued by the British Parliament towards this race of men, is the bea1 I and wisest which could have been pursued. It may J be said to be purely a question of facts, and that | question is, whether the complete emancipation | of a rude, ignorant, barbarous, and uncivilized I race, is good for ,'theni ??whether they have been benefitted or not by the emancipation which the 1 British Parliament has bestowed upon them!? j whether giving them, on this continent, the liber* ties which their race enjoys in Africa, will not I lend to convert every place on this continent i where they may be found, into the same sort of 1 chuinel house, into the same scene ot brutality, | anarchy, and barbarity as is seen in their own { country, wheie they are let loose and uncurbed! We are not attempting to settle or decide this | important question : we content ourselves with ' i s*) iug, that it is stillfa prob lem which yet awaits solution. One tflect of the policy of the British Parliament is, we believe, clearly seen and admit, led on all hands?and that is, the ruin of the formerly thriving and prosperous people settled in the various islands. If, in the scales which the British Parliament held suspended from its hand, that stale containing the black man has gone up, and the other, in which the white race were weighed, has miserably gone down, it might be made a question whether any good can ever be said to be done, where, in the doing of it, an equal amount of injury and evil is produced. It may possibly have comported with the views and interests of a great and powerful party in the Parliament and nation which has eflected this double deed,?of kindness on one side to the black, and ruin, on (he other side, to the white?to have brought auout mis nciiruuea resuu ine Dniisn West India islands, formed by their rich products, a&d the skill, industry, and capital of their inhabitants, a powerful rival to the great and increasing interests of the British in the feast Indies. When we conjoin the fact that it was the interest of the East India trade to crush that of the West Indies, with the other fact, that the latter have been, by the course of British legislation, effectually crushed, it is impossible to avoid an inclination towards the conclusion that the effect produced was the result of design, with the view to a certain object. In this view of the case, the pretensions to religion, morality, philanthrophy, and so forth, by which the deed was pretended to be motived, and by which the simple mass was led, or rather driven, to its support, vanish before the uncovered misk of interested trading motives and party selfishness* into the thin air where such kind of pretensions mostly belong. It appears by the intelligence of our correspondent?. and the accounts we meet with in the papers published on the spot, that a miss of indescribable misery, destitution, and want of em. ploy men t eiists in these colonies. This misery ch;tfly reigns among the immigrant laborers, of i Coolies, who have been introduced in the islands to supply the place of negro labor. We perceive that a league, which takes the title of "The Loyal Weit li die I^esgue," has been formed in the island of Trinidad, especially witli a view to devise means for the remedy of these augmenting evils. We find in a prospectus published by the League, the following significant language, which helps to give an idea of the object of its f< filiation i? What is here proponed in the prenent unemployed rendition of the Indian and African tinmlf(rant(. and rrt ole laborer*, is toe?tabli*h. in convenient parts of tb< colony. relfmipportlnB farms, to be formed out of n.< i in cleared laud, mm aeyium*. nospimm, mnran prison*, police *tatlona. and conrta. attached ll ititdj and to be worked by the unemployed laborer* and convict* Such a project wtoi* not only feasible, tut in opt deMrable; aod If carried oat with vigor, will raw the Immigrant* and other mentioned, from d< tnnrall/ution. ard ha productive, fcet-lde*, of vail gem ml jood hve?y Mipgeetion in *ueh a direction, u>u*t uo? oone mort opportunely Immigration Into i urban impoverished colony a* Trinidad, can only he eff< rtl?f with other auxiliary tnea*ur?* for mooring roiitinuoji employment and food to it* laboring population li> Die pre-Kurti o( untoward oirouro?tanca*. the Wert Irdla plan.n* are being daily bronght down to the leTe! of pauper*; and in oome<|uenca of tha gen?r?l depre**ion of all buelne**.

Sn pu!hr!y f notiffb, and with an oh?tinacr charactriiitic of Ilntiah arietocratic rule, the gow inmrnt of the island, with I.orii Harris the | Governor, at ita head, ha?, we are inlormed, act itj t-'-'f in decided opposition to this movement, and i done all :n tc power to thwart, defeat, and obstruct i 'he < ;ierationa and object* it aima to produce. Ia 1 j ir?ai>nee of thi* ob,*c?, we have heard hi<(h com plaints made against the Governor for his treat meat of a Mr. Horatio Nelson Iluggins, said to be and old, efficient, and praiseworthy magistrate in the island oi Tnnidad. Quite a party excitement seems now to be raging in Trinidad on this suhiect: und Mr. llucrcins. who for twenty years | has been respected and h fjlily honored tor the uptightness ar.d integrity of his conduct as an unpiid magistrate, has, it is said, been driven Iron the post he so ably filled without reward, in consequence of his connection with the league above mentioned, which has excited the special wrath oi his high-mightiness, the Governor. We could not enter, with our correspondents, into the details of this purely local affair, nor participate in the embittered feelings which such local quarrels create between the opposite parties. We advert, however, to this fact, as a proof, among otheis, of the position we begin with assuming, ftamely, that the goodness of the policy pursued by the British towurds the West India colonies, remains yet to be discovered. We also incline to the belief, from all we see before us, as well as frcm our private sources of intelligence, that in, perhaps, co shot t space of time, the commotions and struggles between the people and aristocracy which are now shaking Europe with convulsion to the very centre, will, if a very difler-n' course of conduct be not pursued by Great Britain, extend to the excitable elements of the West India population. The British sitellites sent out to rule and reign over these islands, appear to ua too much inclined to play the part of Horn an pro-consuls or Turkish bashaws, and exhibit too much of that family pride and aristo cratic hauteur which so prominently character* lze the great and rich in England. Sooner or later thii English pride must be subdued and humiliated; sooner or later it must meet with a full, and that a terrific one?for the adage that pride and ruin, hauteur and humiliation, are inseparably associated together and accompany each other, is a truth consecrated bythejustice which baa ever reigned over men and nations in all ages?demonstrated by the ultimate issue of all huir.an events, and mathematically proved by the invariable fate and fall of the proud?it mattered no{ however high they were, or unassailable their 1 power may have appeared to be. Haii.road to tuk Pacific.?Mr. Whitney is out with another long letter, which appears to be intended as a message to Congress in support of his project and route for a railroad to the Pacific. From Lake Michigan to the mouth of the Columbia river, the route proposed would include aline of three thousand miles. The first eight hundred miles would run through a fertile country?the rest of the route is through a desert. The slice of soil sixty miles wide, or the alternate parcels of five miles by sixty, for the lirst eight hundred miles, are intended, therefore, to piy the entire costs of the road. What would the road cost ! At the minimum of $20,(XX) a mile, the first eight hundred miles Mould require an outlay of sixteen millious. But after j>enetrating the great prairie, or American desert, which stretches eastwardly near a thousand miles futni the llocky Mountains, the cost of every mile to the Pacific would be increased, so that before striking the llocky Mountains, the timber for the su|ierstructure, the I iron rails, and the provisions, and all the supplies [ for the men, except buffalo beef, would be sub jected to the costs or an ovenana transportation 01 a thousand miles by the finished road. The difficulties, however, after descending the western slope of the South Pass, would just commence, in entering a labyrinth of mountains and sand plains of a thousand miles extent. The grading of the mountains, the opening of the gorges, halt filled with volcanic debris, the bridging of deep chasms, and the transportation of supplies, would augment the expenditures to at least $100,000 per mile. The road would have to be finished as it progressed westward, for the purpose of procuring materials and supplies from Missouri. What length of time would be required to complete the work under all these disadvantiges, its progress depending upon the gradual salt* of the lands east of the great desert 1 With a fund of fifty or sixty millions on deposite, any amount of force might be employed; but depending upon the land sales, it is not probable that at the maximum any greater progress could be made in the work than fifty miles per annum, under the most favorable operation of the scheme. At this average it would require a period of sixty years to open the way for a locomotive from Chicago to Astoria. Such is a mere glance at the more prominent impediments to this enterprise. We wantacominunication with our vast territorial possessions on the Pacific; but the construction of a railroad througli a region of two thousand miles of empty spacc, without population, without timber, without resources of any kind, except the salt of the Great Salt Lake, is not the thing for the settlement and developement of the territories of California and Oregon. A railroad or ship canal across th.j isthmus at Panama, Nicaraugua, or Iluasacualco; i or a line of Arabian camels and dromedaries irom .St. Louis, via Santa Fe and the Gila, to Monterey ' or San Francisco, would far better subserve the greut primary object of colonizing the coasts of the Pacific, than any railroad project like that of Mr. Whitney. When we shall have admitted into the Union half a dozen thriving States from the west of the liocky Mountains, a continental railroad of seme three thousand miles long may be undertaken with some prospect of its completion; but our present want is the facilities for emigration, which can only be afforded by steamers and a railroad i portage over the isthmus, or by a line of dromej danes from the valley of the Mississippi to the basin of the Sacramento.

' Bowtav Tucatnc.?There was a real holiday audience at this house last evening, aa it was orowded ia every part at a very early hour in the evening, and the utmoat hilarity and good feeling prevailed. The interesting domeatio drama af the " Maid and the Mapp!e" coamenced the entertainments, and the admirable acting of Miss Wemyss, as Annette, was applauded by all This drama it always a favorite one. the ttery is so interesting, and wit and humor are ain.irably blended with the more pathetic portion* of it Stevens aa the old farmer, Wiuans in the oomio cha racter and tbe otLer performers, were much applauded Tbefaroe of "Crimson Crimes" was next ple)?d In tbla piece Mr. Winans. as Kunk. created a vnst dtal of fun ; the danolng of Mr. Smith, and tbe Grand National Allegory were the next entertainment*. We must arcord the greatest praise to Mr. Stevens. the ipdefatigable stage manager, for th? manner in which thil allegory was produced. It was a beautiful thing, and deservedly applauded.

Broadway Theatbk.?Mr. Murdoch played thepart of young Mirabel, is the " inconstant," last night, to a highly respectable and select audience; and exhibited, to a remarkable degree, that peculiar talent and high histrionio ability which be posEesses. Vaobe, as old Mirabel, played admirably ; while Miss Wallack and the beautiful and magnificent Mrs. Abbott, both delighted the andlence by the sweetness, felloity and gracefulness of their representation. Mr. Maoarthy, the great Irish comedian, afterwards appeared as McShane in the " Nervous Man." and acquitted himself extremely well In this difficult character. The song cf " Darby Kelly" was well received and loudly encored. Mr. Murdoch appears again this evening, when a fresh opportunity will be afforded of eeeing aud patronizing a great American actor.

Is bailed with the usual annlause a ! but, though he la down on tbe machine, the patron* of the National will not aoon let him off from running , with them every evening. Now that Yankee Hill is , alto performing at tbe National, an evening spent; there la wt-11 cacu.ated to afford much tun, aa f between tbe eccentricities of the Down-eaater and tbe doings and sayings of the New York B'hoy, the entertainmenta are trne delineations of two moat prominent American characters. Chanfraa keeps up the National to tbe high standard whicq

hia tact and enterprise have gained for it. His company ia composed of excellent performers, who are capable of playing any piece moat thoroughly. Dawea, McFarland, Tilton, Burke, Mrs. Chapman, Miss Mess- ! tsyer. Miss Miles, are among the more prominent members, and. with Chanfrau at their head, they are bound to go on with their present success. For this evening, an excellent bill is presented. Burton's Tiieatrk.?This elegant place of amuse, ment was well attended last evening to witness the i celebrated comedy, in two acts, called the 'Good Old , Knglish Gentleman." Squire Broadland, taken by Mr. ' Burton, was a piece of exoellent aoting, bringing down ! tbe general approbation of the delighted audience. Mrs. Vernon, as Temperance, the Squire's housekeeper, was to the life. Miss Chapman, as Fanny Maikbam. was exceed!ugly good. In theoourseof the piece a "Morris Dance" is introduced, which is something new, and very prettily executed. The "Musical Arrivals, or tbe Manager in a Mess," was repeated last evening, for the third time, and was received with the greet.eel delight. Thia piece is a laughable burlesque, and should be seen by all who love fun. The whole it the performances concluded with an ab?urdity on the bigh prefmre principle, called ''Tom and Jerry ia America or Life in theOld World." This piece kept tha audience in one continued roar of laughter from tha many very droll characters, especially that taken by Mr. 1 Burton, called James Wall Trollope Dickens Fuller Grten. who represents himself to be on a tour of observation, making a book on America. Tbe wit Is good, 1 ad takes, decidedly, with the public. To-night an xcellent bill is presented. Tryok and Thommos'i Circus, Broadway.?Tha classic groupings and acrobatie exercises here, last evtniag. as well as the general performance of the ; company, were received with marked enthusiasm, by a densely crowded house. The entertainments were more than usually attractive, in consequence of the general disposition of our citizens to enjoy the festivities which IivuIiUt icnomn&nv a. > thinVinlilna day;" and, accordingly, the entire strength of the trovpt was put forth, displaying their high add varied talents. Tbe extraordinary feats of equestrianism, particularly by Mr Carroll, were greeted with rou ads of applause, and tbe precocious abilities of the juvenile portion of the performers were vehemently applauded. The bouse was crowded to excess in every available place of accommodation. Sands, Lh?t and Comumt. (Nihi.o's.) ? A densely crowded assemblage of tbe admirers of the gifted percenters who nightly exhibit at this popular circus, enjoyed a rich treat during the entertainment last evening. Mayfly delighted his many admirers, and danced his part, going through tbe various evolutions, to tbe delight of all present, who bestowed upon this beautiful animal a just tribute of applause. The sckccwledgrd talents of the company have earned for ! them a deserved popularity, and the full houres that sre invariably to be leuod here ia the best commentary that can be bestowed upon the superiority and excellence of tbeir general qualifications and ability.

That kite of beasts, the lion occupies a commanding position amcng the subjects who surround birn; ana tbe elephant, white benr. tiger, together with almost every 1 variety of beast of the desert, and numerous specimens ot the feathered creation, are to be seen here in their belt possible condition; aud neither would seem to " pine in their prisons.'' The exhibition la well worthy ot a visit.

'-Three more cheers" wore Riven for Macready; alter which affairs settled down quietly, and the persons composing the audience either withdrew or waited for the afterpiece, [Ktorn the Fannsyivanlan, Mot. lli ] The excitement growing out of the difficulty between Messrs. Korrest and Maoready, even apart from the merits of the question itself, is perhaps a natural oon equence of the insufferable arrogance with which, in tco many inatanoes, American oili/. 'na are treated in K.ngiand We may offend the fahbionable taste in certain ciroles here, probably, by alluding to this feel, ing at present; but even at the hazard of doing to, we cannot forbear giving an instance of British liberality, which is almost without a parallel. In February, ot 1846, when Mr. Korrest visited England, be was desirous of producing Bulwer'* great plays of " Iticbelleu," and the ''Lady of Lyons." He accordingly addressed to that gentleman the following letter 27fi Rkg>:\t St., Lo.xnon.

But Mr. Bulwer, by whom intluenoed we will not even iiuspeot, accompanies the statement of hie extraordinary prioe for the,right asked for by Mr. Forrest, by suoh tyrannical conditions, as to render it Impossible for the latter t? act in the plays alluded to.

Yesterday morning, at tbe return of the watch prisoner*, officer Bodine, of ! Vlf?h m&rd. hmnorht hufora tha nniirt a criminal i looking little couple, whom the officer said he arretted for being disorderly, and the hnaband threatening the life of his better half The wont half of the two, which ia, of course, always understood to be the man, was a fanny looking little Irishman, standing about four feet six inches high, and a waiter by profession, who gave his name as Barney McQowan. His wifj, Biddy, stood about four feet, with a short, thin nose, very sharp at the end, thin, pale faoe, light sandy hair, aad a pair of eyes whioh opened and shut like a young owl against sunshine. 8uch is a description of this little pair.

It appears, Biddy, that you and your hmband would agree better apart. Hare you any children ? Biddt?No, Judge, and how should I, when I am only married six months? This answer she gave with very pert look, plaoisg her hands on her hips, with a degree of self confide tice Maciithhi;?Weil, Biddy, it don't always follow that a woman should be married to hare a family.? Well. Barney, what is the reason you iU treat and beat joui wlfrT Such a nice little woman as this, yon ought to take to your arms apd protect, instead of abuting her ? Barmy?Judge, I doesn't abuse her nor bate her ; the way the muss eome, she has a dress belonging to her sister, and 1 told her te glre it baok, and if she didn't. I said I wonld burn it; the says I bate her; I nerer did bate her Judge; I'll tell you just how it was ; she and me were lji bed together, and we had some few words about the dress and her brother, when I gare her a bit of a push in the taek with my knee, and, by my oonsoienee, that's all I did to her. Biddt- Oh ! Judge, he did bate me about three weeks sgo; he did it, and I am afraid of my life ; I won't lire with him from this dar nerer. I can gs to a good place and keep myself ffithout him. Mai.htsath?The best thing you ean do is to separate if you oannet lire together In peace, and you, Barney.it you promise me not to abuse rour wife or trouble her, i will let you go ; but If not I shall hare to lock you up. "And indeed," said Barney, "you may be sure I won't touch her any more. I don't want to go near her if she don't want me." "That will be the best way. You ean go?both of you-and don't let me see either of you before me again." And of! they both started out of court, apparently muoh better satisfied than when they came in. kobbtd on the Fire Pointi.?A kind of green Irishman. by the name of Kranols Handly, a workman on the New Y ork and Albany liailroad, came to town yetterday, for the purpose of buylug some olothing, together with other little notions he wanted; and in so doing, he strolled amorgst the damsels of the Kire Peints, and was soon entrapped by Catharine Ryan, or mere commonly called mg K&ie, mio one 01 me thicTing dance cellars located in that vicinity.

Information was then given (o (fflcers Gardner anil Sweeny, of the 6th ward who, after considerable search amongst the various dans or prostitution found Kate in a gross state of intoxication. She was taken into custody and conveyed to the station bouse, where her person was searched, but no gold ner paper money was found about her. However, the Captain ordered her back in one of the cells. She was at this time very drunk, and acarcely able to walk without rupport. On officer Sweeuey taking her to the cell, the said to blm,Look'e here, old fellow, by J?a I most have romethiog to drink before I'm locked up. and d?n the consequences !" "Well," said the officer, " 1 will get you something to drink, but I have no money to get it with *' " Oh !" said she, forgetting the charge she was under, "by J?a, I've plenty of money," and very ooolly stooped down, pulled off one of her shoes, and from the heel took out four $6 gold pieces and one 20s. piece, making $22 50. " There," taid she, " take that, you old , and bring me somethlrg to drink, and aay nothing about I*." Thia waa a pcitlon of the stolen money overlooked by the officer who searched her clothing, but omitted to look in her thoes. Thus the woman exposed herself by her overanxiety to prooure more drink.

She was the daughter of a Hebrew, bat had wandered in the wilderness, and fell a prey te the demons of destruction. Many of tbo*e of ner own sex who passed her, betrayed an emotion of sorrow ; while others, with proud and haughty step showed the ourl ot rcorn upon the lip? she was a wanderer, and unworthy of notioe, even would the closely bound systems of respeotabiltty admit of an effort to rescue and restore her to the happier scenes of her early life.

The patient was a lad, named Daniel Burchill, aged about fourteen yeara. Ha waa attacked on Tuetilay, when he oomplalned of stiffness in the neck, shortness of breath and pain in tha I shoulder. A phjaiclan waa immediately sent for, who found the tongue slightly coated and allmy, and tha manner of the patient wild and hurried. He alminlsterad a dace of ealomel and Ipecacuanha, with direction! to give frequent dosaa of tha latter, that what saemsd to be spasms ef tha glottis might be overcome, by keeping the stomach nauseated. On Wednesday morning hla manner waa more wild and harried, aad the aptearanoe of liquid would producespaimi, though be frequently called for drink. It waa than asoartained that abont three montha before, he had bean bitten en the wrlat and ahoulder by a rabid dog, bat the wounds quickly healing, little was thought of It at that time. Aa soon as it waa ascertained, beyond doubt, to bs a oase of hydrophobia, chloroform waa administered, which aeemed to have such good effect that more waa procured, and by Ita application the spaams were entireJy relieved. At six o'clock In the evening, ha waieaay, hla pulse tegular, and he drank flax seed tea without > he slightest repugnance. He remained In that condition until ten o'clock at night, when ha died, having been free from spasms for neatly seven hours. Thia is, Indeed a singular case ; that the chloroform should ro fpeedily relievo the spaams, and yet the patient rhoul d die while apparently perfectly easy.
