Tu tkf Editor of the t'reao : Workmen are engaged iu removing the deb ris of the Catholic nunnery which was burnt by a mob at Charlestown some thirty years since. The site is the most commanding one iu the vicinity of Boston. It has about twen ty acres of laud. The ruins have been a dis grace to the city. The rapid accumulation of greenbacks by the society, which are not available to them iu any oilier country, has led them to commence improving the lands. It bids fair t) be one of the most attractive situations on the continent. The Charlestown Water Works have been iu course of construction about one year. Ill luck lias been theirs. A New Vork contrac tor, with a plenty of cheek, worked a time, but that would not pay always. Next ou the course was a Herman Superiutemlant, under the control of the Water Commissioners, who now have suspended on account of a strike amongst the laborers, who demand <M) per day iustead of * I ..‘.a, which they haii been re ceiving. But most of them have left for oth er parts. Most of the prize goods sold by order of the government, in this market, having been seized iu attempting to run the blockade, have been shop-worn and unsalable. Keceut develupeiuenls bring to light that oue whose piety is resplendent, ami who has been honored by a seat iu the Judiciary of your State, lias lieeu taken in by one of the frail sisters of Ibis city, and that considerable hush money has lieeu used. The supply of vegetables is short in Ibis market. Ansi.. A Remark able Story. M AUKI A(,K OX snonr ACQUAINTANCE. A letter from l’almyra, N. Y., to the Rochester Expresr, tells this curious story: A remarkable (leap year) courtship and marriage came oil iu our quiet village last week, resulting disastrously to all the parties concerned. The whole case is uot so fully developed as to enable one to give a full re lation. It seems that a Miss C. M., a highly respected young lady of twenty years, had been holding a eorreapoudeuce with a young o til cur iu a military caiup in New Jersey, who had scut her au introductory letter vouching for his respectability. Said letter was written by au acquaintance of hers, who also was an officer. Several letters passed, lie sending his photograph, aud a request lhr her photograph. Ail this was very pleasant aud honorable. On Monday of last week a young and rath er prepossessing man of about twenty-five years, dressed iu military clothes, arrived here and called on the lady, aud announced himself as her dear correS|H>udeut. He was cordially received as such by Miss <J. M., not withstanding the parties failed to discover any similarity of likeness between him aud the photograph, hut that he explained to her satisfaction by saving it was takcu before ho went into the service three years ago. Mon day and Tuesday things wcut on lovingly, and he visited the moruiug prayer meetings, saug and spoke, and all were greatly ediC ed thereby. The accouut he gave ot himself was that he had resigned about four months previous, w-as now a deputy provost-marshal, was at Vicksburg when taken prisoner, au inmate of Libby eight mouths, and was at thu Gettysburg tight. On Tuesday night, much against the wish es of parents and friends, they were married. The next day he began to look after some workmen to paint and paper his father-in-law's house. IIi8 bargaiu with the painters was fair, showing plenty of greenbacks, and offer ing to pay down on the fuilillmeut of the con tract. lie looked at a number of llue resi dences, hut failed to strike a bargain. In conversation with the clergyman who married them, he slated that he had lost, on Main street, foOO, hut being a stranger, aud having already gained some notoriety, lie would not advertise it, “he did uot care lor the money." He claimed to be the owner of a farm of two hundred acres, near Elmira. Friday after noon, Mr. Officer, who had already assumed two or three names, procured a carriage and horses of Mr. Sweeney, of the Eagle, aud drove out, but did not, it seems, return as per agreement. In the moruiug, a letter arrived lor the bride, which was opened by the pa IVIltB Mltll (Vklltkli (A Isas fnun I. a_ . . poiuleut, the owner of the photograph. This document resulted iu sending Officers Clark ami Howe iu pursuit of the team and deluded bride. At Canandaigua he was ar rested, honed, aud placed in durance vile. The eyes ol the late Miss C. M. being opened, she upbraided him fur his deceit, and declared she would return home, which she did. The young scamp had to be knocked down before be would yield. To officer Clark lie confess ed he was a deserter from the army, aud wished him to call the provost-marshal, pre ferring to fall into his hands. Officer Clark, deeming it proper to notify the provost, did so. During the few minutes absence the prisoner had wrenched off' his irons and burned sucb papers in his possession as he thought proper. He is certainly a most ac complished villain. The affair has caused much excitement. It is due to tire parents of the misguided young lady to 9ay that they were opposed to the hasty marriage, and in sisted on a week's time, but the couple were determined, and threatened going somewhere else to have the ceremony consummated, and fearing that would make the affair more ridic ulous, they reluctantly and fearfully consent ed. Stock Oj-kkatioxh —Wall street, at pres ent, continues to be the only center of excite ment aud attraction in New York. The great menagerie of hulls and bears is the dailjT ga ziug stock of “capitalists.” All other busi ness is now tame compared with fortuue-liun tiug iu fancy stocks. The crowd of'dabblers,” old aud young, is immense. Brokers who do not make a thousand dollars tier day, iu com missions, are classed as old fogies. Specula tors who do not secure a snug little fortune iu a mouth are ranked as “feeble.” Money is easy, now, with hanks, hankers, brokers, mer chants—-everybody. Speculators are there fore multiplying rapidly. To be an “operator” now is only to he "in the fashion.” Why not, grandfather, says the young fop, witli his cane and cigar, make a “bold operation,” “go iu deep,” aud secure a fortune iu a year, rather thau be a whole age aboutit as you have been ? These boys are as thick in ami around Wall struct, now, as mosquitoes are in Comnmni paw Hay, and a great deal holder. Mauy ancient gentlemen are also among them, spec tacled and gray haired. What the end of this fortune limiting, we will not now stop to discuss. One thing, however, is plain; “cra zy people” and “fanatics,” are found in other places iieside pulpits and praying circles.— The wildest excitements ever witnessed by Whitfield, Xettleton, or Kinney were a dead calm compared witli the daily brain-snapping, lung-splitting, soul-absorbing zeal of Wall street. One visit to the Stock Kxchauge will satisfy anybody, divested of grave-clothes, that the devotees of Mammon or Mhylock are more crazy and fanatical than any other two legged animals in the universe. Now is the time to contract for lunatic-asylums, homes lor inebriates, hospitals and poor-houses.— Send In your plans and specifications. “Of fice hours from 10 to ;i.”—N. Y. Independent.
