The Late N. P. Willis. Nathaniel Parker Willis, whose death was announced by telegraph yesterday, was bom in this city on the 20th of January, 1807. The Willis family removed to Boston in or about the year 1813, and the future poet received bis early educatiou in the schools of that place, whence he was sent to Phillips Academy at Andover. He became a student of Yale Col lege, New Haven, and was graduated in 1827. His life in college afforded indications ot his future eminence, and his writings at that time brought him considerable reputation and some profit. The publisher of The Album having offered a prize of fifty dollars for a poem, Mr, Willis was one of the competitors and took the prize. While an under-graduate he wrote a number of religious poems, which were pub lished under the signature of Roy. After leaving college, Mr. Willis was employ ed on the Legendary and the Token, two of many publications conducted by Mr. 8. G. Goodrich. He established the American Month ly Magazine in 1828, and carried it on for more than two years, when it was united with the New York Mirror, then conducted by General George P. Morris. Mr. Willis went to Europe and wrote for the Mirror his “Pencilings by the Way,” which were extensively copied into other journals. Ho not only visited the continent of Europe before travelling in England, contrary to the usual course, but he extended his tour to some parts of the East. After an extended tour, during which he visited France, Italy, Greeco, Turkey and Asia Minor, he proceeded to England, where ho mot with a very flatter ing reception. His letters irom London and Edinburgh were freely written, and their pub lication caused some mischief. Some of his expressions concerning Capt. Marryat's sea stories, of a contemptuous character, led to a retort from their author, and also to a hostile meeting. In 1835 his “Pencilings" were pub lished collectedly, in throe volumes, and were severely reviewed by some of the English crit ical magazines. His “Inklings of Adventure” appeared in London, in throe volumes. This was a collection of pieoes which he had con tributed to the London New Monthly Maga zine. Both works were republished in Ameri ca, and proved successful. Mr. Willis returned home in 1837, and lived as a country gentleman at a place to which he gave tho name of Glenmary, in the valley of the Susquchannah, and on the banks of that famous river. There he wrote his “Letters from under a Bridge.” In 1839 he became as sociated with Dr. Porter, in tho publication of the Corsair, a weekly journal of much note.— He visited England t > make arrangements for the foreign correspondence of his new paper, and among the correspondents ho engaged was no less a man than Mr. Thackeray, then young and unknown to fame. In 1844 he established the Evening Mirror, a doily journal, his old partner, Gen. Morris, as sociating with him in the enterprise. The fail ure ot his health caused him to abandon dail.i journalism, as a task too severe for him, and he made his third visit to Europe. His “Dashes at Life with a Free Pencil,” was published in London in 1845, in three volumes. After bis return to America he associated himself with Gen. Morris for the publication of the Home Journal, which soon became one of the most successful weekly publications in the country. He took up his residence at Idle wild, a country seat near Newburg, ou the Hud son river, one of the most delightful places in America. Many of Mr. Willis’ works were published after be began his residence at Idlewild.— Among them are “Uural Letters and other Rec ords of Thought and Leisure,” in 1849; “Peo ple I have Met,” and Life Here and There,” in 1830; “Hurrygraphs,” and “Memoranda of a Life of Jenny Lind," in 1851; “Fun Jottings: or, Laughs I have taken a Pen to,” “A Health Trip to the Tropics,” and “A Summer Cruise in tho Mediterranean in a United States Frig ate,” in 1853; “Famous Persons and Places,” and “Out-Doors at Idlewild,” in 1854; “The Rag Bag,” in 1855; “Paul Fane,” in 1856; and ‘‘The Convalescent,” in 1860. A collected edi tion of his prose writings was published in 1846; and liis poems were also published in a collect ed iorrn, with illustrations by Leutze. A new and enlarged edition of his works appeared much later. They are great favorites with the reading public. Mr. Willis was twice married. When in Euglaud, in 1836, he married Miss Mary Leigh ton Stace, daughter of Commissary General William Stace, who waB at that time in com mand of the arsenal at Woolwich, and who had distinguished himself at Waterlooaud on other occasions. This lady, from whom Glenmary was named, died early, leaving one child, a daughter. In 1845 Mr. Willis married Miss Cornelia Grinnell, only daughter of the Hon. Joseph Grinnell, of New Bedford. Several children were born ot this marriage. For nearly a dozen years past Mr. Willis’ health had been feeble, and his demise, espec ially during a recent severe attack of his com plaint, was expected. However, about a week ago he wrote a brief letter to the Home Jour nal in such a cheerful strain that his friends had hope of a partial recovery. _ But it was otherwise decreed. The Chicago Collcrf. Tho Boston Advertiser's special dispatch gives the following account of the drawing of the great Opera House Lottery, briefly announ cd by telegraph yesterday The great event has conic to pass. Tho Ope ra House in Chicago has been drawu in a lot tery, the price of the tickets being live dollars. The number is known, but not as yet the name of tiie owner of it. The number is 58,000. At an early hour the various entrances to the Op era House were infested with a crowd impa tient to secure good seats to witness the draw ing. At n a. m. the building was thrown open t > tho public, the balcony being reserved for ladies, in a short time me building was more than comfortably filled, and at 12 o’clock the members of the committee appeared upon the stage, preceded by the wheels of fortune, and having with them the numbers, which had been carclully counted several times. The manner of drawing was as follows: Two wheels about two and four feet in diameter, respectively, octagonal in shape; into the larger tiie committee placed, in the presence oi tiie audience, tickets numbering from 1 to 210, 000; into tiie smaller wheel 302 tickets Inscrib ed with the names of the premiums, to wit: the Opera House, the bust of Lincoln, and l hree Hundred paintings. A number was to be drawn from the larger wheel, and then a prize from the smaller; so that the principal prize, the Opera House, might not be drawn until most of the other prizes were. As it was, the 113th number took prize No. 1, tho Opera House. Mr. David Fulsifer of Bostou was sta tioned by the committee at one wheel, and Mr. J. C. Dure ol this city at the other. 'Ihc draw ing was then conducted as above described, un til the whole number of prizes were drawu. Tiie following are the first niue prizes, with the corresponding tickets: 58,600 drew prize No. 1, ihc Opera House, valued at 8000,000; 61,833 drew prize No. 2, BierstadtV’ Vosemitu Valley." valued at $20,000; 170,187 drew prize No. 3, Cropsey’s ‘‘American Autumn,” valued at $0000 : 72,305 drew prize No. 4, Schussele’s ‘‘Washington Irving and his Friends,” valued at $5000 ; 35,400 drew prize No. 5, Mart’s ‘‘ Autumn,” valued at $5000; 21,990 drew prize No. 6, Mayer’s “Recognition,” val ued at $5000: 61,952 drew prize No, 7., Beard’s “Deer on the Frairies,” valued at $4000; 56,960 drew prize No. 8, Gignoux’s “Alpine Scenery,’’ valued at $3000; 1612154 drew prize No. 9, bust of Mr. Lincoln, valued at $2000. The drawing occupied three hours' A great inauy rumors fill the city as to the holder ol the first prize, bat as yet nothing is known def initely except the number. The books are still iu the bands of the committee. Everybody seems satisfied with the manner in which the drawing has been conducted. Everybody seems relieved that the thing is over, and the excite ment now is to know the uame of the new owner of the Opera House. Women Living for Months in a Hollow Tree.—The Louisville Courier tells the follow ing pitiful story: A philanthropic gentleman was on his way out in the country yesterday afternoon, during the driving snow storm, when he discovered a woman crossing the fence into a wood pasture just outside the city limits. She was thinly clad, shivering in the cruel blast, and gave ev idence of severe destitution and hard living — Not seeing any house near, he wondered to himself where the woman was going, and call ing her, questioned her as to the cause of her being out in the storm. She replied by eva sive answers, but upon his questioning her more closely, she told him that she lived with another woman in an old hollow tree in the pasture, and had been staying there for over four months past The gentleman hitched his horse and proceeded to where the woman, les lgnated lier miserable retreat to be, and there wrapped up in somo old army biankets he discovered the other woman,-sleepiuir it. ’eilo hollow of the tree, sheltered by some old nieces of board and bark. The women said they were from Cross Keys, near Atlanta, Ga., and hid oouio up to the city some months ago seeking honorable employment, but had failed in their efforts, and had been since that earning a live lihood by gathering shucks, doing washing Sic., meeting misfortune with a heroism wor thy of the noblest of women. The gentleman who found them soon made their case known to the people of that vicinity, and In a few hours the poor women were taken from their uncomfortable refuge and well pro vided for. This is but one instance lllustratiuc of the suffering among the poorer classes.

BEFORE JUDGE FOX. Tuesday .—The case of United States V. mare Nel lie W. Locke was called up. This horse, it will be remembered, was brought from Canada and entered at a low value, and was seized for fraudulent entry. At a former sitting of the Court appraisers were ap pointed and bonds given by the claimants to prose cute their claim. This morning claimants withdrew, and the mare was decreed forfeited. SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT. JANUARY TERM.—BARROWS J, PRESIDING. Tuesday.—No. 135 —Sarah A. B. Collagan, exec utrix, appellant from decree of Judge of Probate, v. Ilenry S, Burns & als. This is the Collagan will case which was tried at the October term, andjn which the jury failed to agree. The will was executed at Boston, Feb. 2f.tb, 1853, and by it Capt. C. gave all his property to his wife. The heirs at law contest it on the ground that it was subsequently revoked by Capt. C., who tore the will in pieces, as they allege. Tho case comes up by appeal, from the Probate Court, the Judge of which declined to admit the will to probate. Mr. Webb opened the case to the jury in an able and elaborate maimer for the appellant, and called a number of witnesses, who were sworn. At the ad* Joumment of the Court Mrs. Harding was on the stand. She testified that she mutilated or tore the will when Capt. Collagan was not present, though lie knew it soon afterwards, and then affirmed the instru ment to be be his last will and testament. The case will occupy the whole week, and Judge Barrows dismissed the second jury until next Mon day. Messrs. James F. Pickering, of Boston, and Dcblois & Webb, of this city, appear for Mrs. Collagan, and Messrs. Davis & Drummond and H. P. Deane for the heirs at law. The “Park," ncniu. It seems a misnomer to call this seven by nine patch of territory, a Park; it is nothing more than a Square, anil should be so styled. A Park in its original signification was an inclosure of pasture or woodland connected with a country residence and used for purposes of recreation, but chiefly for the support of a herd of deer.— It was subsequently applied to large enclosures in cities adorned by trees, carriage drives, &c., as Hyde P..rk and Regent's Park in London, and Central Park in New York. Hyde Park, for instance, contains 400 acres, in which are fine carriage drives and the famous $erpentine river. Regent’s Park covers an area of more than 420 acres, one side of which is half a mile long, another three quarters of a mile, and con tains a beautiful lake; either of these Parks is considerably more than double the extent of the district burnt over in the fire of July 4th and one third part as large as the whole prom ontory on which Portland is built. I would, therefore, call the tract set apart for public use, a Square, whose definition as given by Worces ter precisely meets the .case, viz,, “an open area in a town or city formed by the junction or crossing of two or more streets." This cor responds with the reserved and moderate sized areas in Philadelphia, New York and Boston, which have received their appropriate titles. Our square is less than two acres. Let us not make ourselves ridiculous by the misapplica tion of terms. And I would suggest as a name, “Ligonia Square." Ligonia was the name of a Province 40 miles square, extending from Cape Porpus to Casco Bay, granted in 1030 to certain adven turers to the New World, by the Grand Council of Plymouth in England. The first adventur ers made one voyage to Saco river in 1631, but not being satisfied with the appearance of the country and also finding it occupied under a prior grant, they continued on to Boston, and abandoned their enterprise. They afterwards transferred their rights to Alexander ltigby, who being an ardent republican, and a mem ber of Parliament, had sufficient influence, un der the revolutionary government, to give a character to his grant. Our first settler, George Cleeves, being in England at that time. 1613, having succeeded in being appointed by Rigby his deputy, returned in that year, and pro claimed his commission in Casco, now Port land, and held his courts in that place. Cleeves, took the title of Deputy President, held a gen eral assembly and other courts, made grants of land, and ruled over the Province until Massa chusetts, with a strung hand, extended her ju risdiction in 1658 over all the inhabitants as far east as Casco Bay. This name is therefore commended for its euphonious sound, as well as for its historical association. Indeed so important and interest ing was this association, that one of the emin ent members of the Convention of Maine, which prepared the Constitution of our State, and who was one of the committee which drafted that instrument, proposed in the convention, that the name of the new State should be Ligonia, and sustained his proposition by an able and interesting speech. But the present name, be ing more familiar to the people prevailed. We should not, I think, permit the ancient name to pass into oblivion, especially in the town, which was dignified as the capital of that early republican government, and the residence of its chief magistrate, the founder of our town. W. Missing — Singular Family Fatality.— The bark Oraina, Capt. Hiram Smith, Bailed from Key West for Liverpool the 15th of last March, sinoe which time nothing has been heard of the vessel or those on board. Captain Smith had sailed from this port for a number of years, and was respected by a Large circle of friends. He bad with him on this fatal voyage his wife, three children and his brother, Chas Smith, who was mate of the bark. The latter leaves a wife and two children. He was a young man of execllentfqualities. This sad loss of so many from one family is doubly sad in that several other members of the same family have perished at sea. A broth er, Collingwood Smith, and a brother-in-law' were among the victims of the. murdering mu tineers on board the brig Albion Cooper 1857> and in December 1804 another brother, Capt. Woodbury Smith, sailed irom Halifax, N. S., having with him his wife. They were never heard from. The mother of this family now resides in this city. Store Breaking.—Monday night some per sons passing by a store on Spring street dis covered that one of the windows was broken.— After passing by, it occurred to one o( them that some mischief might be going on, and the party turned back. As they approached tho store a fellow bolted out of it and made off.— «He took nothing by bis movements, as he was iu too much of a hurry to escape, and vacated the premises as soon as he heard the men re turning to examine the store.

Mr. Robie however, was able to parry the thrusts of the knife, and to frustrate the efforts of tlio other scoundrel who was trying to rob him, The robber finding Mr R’s re sistance so persistent aud powerful, suddenly tore Sir. R’s cap and fur collar from his bead and neck, and escaped. The other also made off and Sir. Robie on reaching his house found that ho had been stabbed in two places, but providentially the wounds were only in his coat. One thrust on his back had been so directed that it only ent throngh two coats, and his vest, and there the knife bit a pocket comb which stopped its farther progress, The ruffians were young men from 18 to 22 yearF. as Sir, Robie judges, one of them very robust, the other not so heavy, and neither very tall.

The action was for damages for alleged personal injuries, brought by Nathaniel W. Morse against Mar tin D. Ward, Esq., aud thirteen others, citizens ef Skowhegan. It appeared from the evidence that Morse was a notorious copperhead during the rebellion, and, upon bearing of the assassi nation of President Lincoln, said be was glad of it—applauded the act of Booth and made himself particularly odious. The defendants went iu a body to his house for the purpose of compelling him to take back his words. Morse saw them coming and attempted to take to the woods, but was overtaken, brought back, and compelled to recant what he had said, and to take the flag of the United States in his hands and cheer it. For this, be brought an action of trespass. The trial occupied about three days. After a clear and very ablo charge by Danforth, J., who told the jury that the amount of damages was exclusively for them to decide the jury retired, and promptly returned a verdict for the plaintiff for one cent, which was immediately paid by deposit of ono copper cent with the clerk.

Schools in the District of t'olutnbin. The examination to be made by the Senate District committee into the school affairs of Washington and Georgetown will show that up to 1862 no colored school was allowed here, though the property of colored men was tax ed ten per cent, for school purposes. Congress, however, took hold of the matter on the 1st of May, 1862, and passed a bill directing that the amount of school tax paid by colored people be expended for the benefit of colored sebools. Not a cent was paid over under this law for two years; and then, when a committee of in vestigation bad been ordered, some $600 was delivered up. On the 25tli of June, 1864, a law was passed requiring the municipal authori ties to set apart caeh year, from the fund ap plicable to purposes of public education, sucli a proportionate part thereof as the number of colored children between the ages of six ami seventeen bear to the whole number of child ren, while in a subsequent p rt of the same a -t is found the proviso that the funds thus obtain ed “shall he applied to the education of both white and colored children in the proportion of the numbers of each between the ages of six and sixteen.” The mayor of Georgetown car ried out this provision by dividing the school fund iu proportion to the numbers of white and black children between these ages; bnt the mayor of Washington interpreted the law to read so that the money to he applied to colored schools should he as the number of black child ren belweeu six and seventeen is to the whole number of white children under twenty-one, added to the number of blacks under six and over sixteen. Tbc census shows the number of black children of the age to lie sent to suhool to be over twenty per cent, of the whole num ber in tbe city, while this mean and forced con struction of the law reduced them to less than ten per cent, and cheated them out of about $16,006. The mayor’s law gives the colored schools $19,293 72 for the per cent&gc since May 1,1862, while the law ot Congress gives them $35,000. A suit is now pending for the difference between these figures.—Dispatch to Boston Advertiser. Rather Dry.—A curious Christinas festival given at Blennerhasset, Cumberland, Eng land, by Mr. William Lawson, is reported in the English papers. Mr. Lawson is a vegeta rian, and gave an entertainment accordingly: About 1000 people attended. The farm buildings were decorated, and in the largo rooms singing and dancing and lecturing on phrenology, co-operation, vegetarianism and physiology went forward at intervals during the day. At noon a moal of grain, fruit and vegetables was given, which rather surprised some of the beel-oating peasantry who had as sembled to take part in the festival. There were raw turnips, boiled cabbages, boiled wheat, boiled barley, shelled peas (half a ton of the three last named); oat meal gruel, with chopped carrots, turnips, and cabbage in it;boil ed horse beans, boiled potntoes: salads, mode of chopped carrots, turnips, cabbages, parsley, &c., over which was poured linseed boiled to a Jel ly. As there were no condiments of any kind, oither upon the extraordinary messes or the ta ble, and all being cold except the potatoes, it may be imagined the guests did not sit down with much relish to their vegetarian fares.— Each had an apple and a biscuit presented on rising from the table. A Tobacco Stoby.—A Berlin correspondent writes: “Two years agoa society was establish ed in Berlin, the members of which agreed to preserve all the points of their cigars, instead of biting them oil' and throwing them away. These ends are collected, and then sold in large quantities, cither for the manufacture of snuff or smoking in pipes. The sum thus raised is applied t‘> the maintenance and education of orphans; and some idea of the extent of the so ciety and the intensity of its alfection for the weed may he gained from the fact that the ci gar-ends of two years’saving have brought in a sufficient sum for the maintenace of twenty two children. Wno’a The Foot,?—Some merchants went to an Eastern Sovereign, and exhibited for sale several very fine horses. Till1 King admired them and bought them; he moreover, gave the merchants a lac of rupees to purchase more horses for him. The King one day in a sportive humor, ordered the vizier to make out a list of all the loots in Ills dominions. He did so and put las Majesty's name at the head of them. The King asked why. He|replied “Because you entrusted a lac ot rupees to men you don’t know, and who will never come hack.’ ’ Ay, but suppose they should come back—“Then I shall erase your name aud Insert theirs,” The Auburn Mnrdor. JOHNSON, THE SUSPECTED HAN, PBOVES AN Alibi. Johnson, the laborer arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the murder of the two wo men at Auburn, appears to have had no con nection w ith the aflair. He averred his inno cence from the first, and gave a clear account of his whereabouts during the week in wliich the deed was committed. His statement, given in the Lewiston Journal, is as follows: “Left Nathaniel Maybury’s in Turner, Mon day morning. Came to Widow Millet's m Au burn. Got there when the sun was about half an hour high at night. Stopped all night Mon day. Left after breakfast, Tuesday A. M. at 8 or li o’clock. Went to Packard's .store at Au burn Hill. Staid there till noon; got dinucr at Austin Kingsley’s; then went to Auburn Hollow (N. Auburn); from there to Turner, to a new house near' Sylvester llrudiordjs. Staid all night there. ® Lett Wednesday morning before the murder. Came ba 'k to the “Four Corners,” (just on the edge of Turner above North Auburn). Got there at 10 or 11 o’clock. Sawed wood in the afternoon lor a shoemaker, and staid with him all night Wednesday. Left Thursday morning at 9 o’clock. Went to a tavern at Auburn Hollow (two miles from where the murder was committed.) Wanted to stop, but said they were full. Then went to Air. Briggs’s (Bun ker’s?) brick bouse and stayed ail night Thurs day. Left Friday morning and took dinner with Henry Smith. Then went to Air. Leav itt’s (near the Poor Farm) where 1 was arrest ed.” The first thing to bo done, of course, was to verify the prisoner’s statement, if it would ad mit of it. Accordingly Deputy Littlefield aft or talcing down the prisoner’s statement in writing from his own lips, as published above, at once proceeded to the localities named, or to those essentially concerned, in order to dis cover the movements of Johnson during Wed nesday, Wednesday night, Thursday and Thursday night Deputy L. accordingly proceed ed to the house of a Mr. Wheaton, a shoemak er, about three miles from where the murder was committed, in the direction of Turner. Mr. Wheaton states that Wednesday after noon Johnson sawed wood for him; that Wednesday evening there was a Singing School near by and Johnson was there during the evening; that Johnson remained at his house all night; that ho went to bed at the usual bed time; that ho ate breakfast then and went away about nine o’clock Thursday morning. This account given by Mr. Wheaton is con firmed by Wheaton s wife. That Johnson saw ed wood at Wheaton’s Wednesday P. Al., is stated by twenty witnesses, many of whom al so saw him during the evening. This testimo ny seems to be conclusive that Johusou was not in a situation to commit the murder, at the time it was probably committed, jjis expla nations of Ins movements on Thursday and subsequently during the week seem to he equally and clearly in his favor. The conclu sion seems to he irresistible that he cannot ho the guilty man. —The price of admission to the Paris Exhi bition in the Champ do Mars lias long been discussed..
