PADDY AND THE LOVERS.
A few monlh8 eince a son of Erin, about
eight o'clock one evening, called at a country
inn in the western part of Pennsylvania, and
demanded lodgings for the night. It was
evident from his appearence and actions
that he and liquor had been jolly companions
throughout the day. The landlord was
a lazy, good natured soul, and had imbibed
rather freely that day himself.
"If I give you a light and tell you where
the room is, you can find the place ?" said
"Och and it's myself that can do that
most illigantly. Just show me the way,
and I. will find it as aisy as the Holy Virgin
showers down blessings upon the sinful,"
The directions were given him and also
a candle. He was directed to go to a room
on Ihe second floor in the house. By the
time ho had reached the top of the stairs,
his light had become extinguished and he
had forgotten in what direction he was to go.
Seeing rays of light issuing from a room, the
door of which stood slightly ajar, he reconnoiterea
the inside of the room and found it
to contain a bed, in which lay a man, and a
stand with a small lighted lamp upon it.
Feeling disinclined to make any further
search for the room to which he had been
directed, he divested himself of his clothing
and quietly crept into bed. He had been
in but a few moments, wlicn a young
iady and gentleman entered the room. The
Irishman eyed them closely. They seated
themselves on the chairs, in close proximity
to each other, and after chatting merrily for
~ a 3hort time the young man threw his arm
around her waist in a very cousinly manner,
and imprinted a kiss upon her tempting
lips. There was a witchery in it which demanded
a repetition. The scene amused
the Irishman vastly, and being free from
selfishness, he concluded that his sleeping
oompanion should be a participant with him
in the enjoyment of the scene, nudged him,
but his companion stirred not. He put his
band upou him, and found that he was
tightly locked in the embrace of death.?
Synonymous with his discovery, he bounded
qijt qf hed, exclaiming :
"Hurther ! murther! Howly Saints of
Hiven protect me!"
He had scarcely touched the floor with his
feet before the young lady and gentleman
were making rapid strides towards the stair.
way, terror beiDg depicted on their countent
ances. They had just reached the top of the
stairs when the Irishman came dashing
along, as though the fiends of Erebus were
closioug at his heels, intent on making him
their prey, and the whole three went tumbling
down the stairs, and it is hard to determined
which reached the foot of the stairs
first. The landlord stood aghast as the IrishWVA?1

between him and nudity but a garment vulgarly
styled a shirt, the hair on his head
standing upon end, his "eyeballs ready to
leap from their sockets, and he gasped for
breath. It was a sight which would have
made a man laugh who had worn a vinegar
face from the day of his birth. Nothing
co.i\ld iuduce him to seek a bed that night
When the young lady and gentleman
found that it was not the corp?c that had so
unceremoniously bounded from the bed, they
returned to the room, (they being the watchers
for the night,) and doubtless commenced
courting at the point where it had so suddenly
Give iiim Justice.?Last fall, in Boston
a man detecting an unlawful intimacy between
his wife and a neighbor, entered a complaint
against them, upon which they were
held to bail, which they readily found. The
injured husband was aiso bound over as principal
witness, and, being unable' to cot bail,
was, of course, placed iu jail to await the
trial. The other day the case came up before
Judge Abbott; it was found, however,
that the husbuud could not be a witness against
his wife, and so the parties wore all
dismissed. Thereupon the injured husband,
"move in sorrow than iu auger," addressed
the court as follows :
"Your honor, is this whatthey call justice?
Here, six months ago, I eumplaiued against
this man for crimiual intercourse with my
wife ; thereupon I was locked up cut of the
way, and he has lived with her ever since.
Now you say I can t testify, and there's no
case against him. Why-couldn't you tell
rue last fall, without keeping me in jail all
winter, and leaving the parties to go on half
a year longer, making a sad matter worse,
without me to trouble 'em. Darn such justice."
Nothing like a good companion.
SCENE IN A POLICE OFFICE.
The prisoner in this case, whose name was
Dicky Swivel, alias "stove pipe Pete," was
placed at the bar, and questioned by tlie
Judge to the following effect:
Judge.?Bring the prisoner into court.
Pete.?Here I am bound to blaze, as the
spirits of Turpentine said when he was all
We will take a little of the fire out of you.
How do you live ?
I ain't particular, as the oy3ter was, when
they asked him if he'd be roasted or fried.

said, or the spirits of Turpentine either.?
What do you follow?

locomotive said when he run over a little
Don't care anything about the locomotive.
What is your business ?
That 's various, as the cat said when she
stole the chicken off the table.
That comes nearer to the line, I suppose.
Altogether in my line as the rope said
when it was choking the pirate.
If I hear any more absurd comparisons,
I will give you twelve months.
I'm done, as the beefstake said to the

No more of your stupid nonsense. Hovt

Sometimes on my legs, and sometimes or

How do you keep yourself alive ?

I order you to answer this question, correctly.
How do you do ?
Pretty well, I thank you Judge. IIow dc

I shall have to commit you.
Well, you've committed yourself first,
that's some consolation.
A witty correspondent sends us the
following notice of a brief street colloquy
recently held between a maiden lady of little
beyond a certain age and a new married
"So you are going to keep house are
you?" said the elderly maiden.
"Yes," was the reply.
"Going to have a girl, I suppose ?" was
The newly made wife colored, and then
quietly responded that:
"She really didn't know whether it would
be a boy or a girl."
jfcaf* In a shirl-store window, in New York
the notice "Hands wanted on bosoms," was
displayed This attracted the ..ttention of a
wag, who coolly walked in and with an air
of affected simplicity inquired of the lady
in the store whose bosoms she wanted hands
on ? "Jane," cried the lady, "bnug me
the broom, and be quick !"
'Remember, sir," said a tavern-keeper
to a gentleman who was about leaving his
house without paying his bill, "remember,

pull it out here."
MAN OF MARK.
Count Walewski, the French plenipotentiary
at the Peace Conference, is about fifty
years of age. The upper part of his face
down to about half the nose is excessively
spirtual; the lower portions not so much so.
Though comparatively young in years, he is
an old diplomatist- Twenty-five years ago,
he represented in Paris and London the
provisional government of Poland, then in
insurrection against the Russians. In 1849
he accomplished a mission to Mehemet Ali,
confided to him by 31. Theirs. Later, 31.
Guizot despatched him to the province ol
La Plata. He was also Minister Plenipotentiary
of France to the Court of Tuscany,
and in'the same year to that of Naples. In
i 1852, he was appointed Ambassador to the
j Court of St. .Tames. "The origin of Count
Walewski," says the Delat?, "is most illusJ
trious, and this is always an advantage in a
I diplomatic assembly. He proceeds from a
j branch of the Italian Colonna family, which
i has given many cardinals and a Pope to the
J church, besides many generals and diplomatists
to the Courts of Rome, France and
Spain." This may. in fact, be the Count's
origin, legitimately speaking; but, as the
whole world knows, and as his features
I graphically attest, the Count is the son of the
I great, Napoleon, and now acts as president
of a Congress, one of whose duties will be
to efface the record made forty years ago, by
a similar assembly at Vienna, that no one ol
the name and lineage have ever tried, and I
) shall only ask for it a careful trial, and il
success docs not crown the efforts of the one
; trying it, he had better sell his land and emi|
grate. A Rustic.
? ? ?? ??
An Ingenious Rocj e.? Perhaps for in
i genuity, the following trick, played by a Rus
: sinu in Moscow, could not be surpassed ir
I Gotham. A respectable looking man fel
: senseless in the street in an epileptic fit, vlier
a person in the crowd started forward, am
exclaimed, "Oh, my master ! my poor mas
iter!" He now very coolly transferred tin
' contents of the unfortunate gentleman's pock
j ets iuto his owu, not. forgetting his watch
! and then, with all the concern imaginable
requested the persons near him, to watch hi
poor master while he ran to procure an equip
acre toeonvev him home. On beine observer
i . .
to pass a coach stand without stopping, thi
cheat was detected; but he contrived toge
! clear off with his booty.
A Soft Voice.?We agree with that oh
; poet, who said that a low, soft voice was ai
excellent thing in a woman. Indeed we fee
j inclined to go much further than he has 01
i the subject, and call it one of her crownin;
J charms. No matter what other attraetioi
i she may have; she may be as fair as the Tro
jan Helen, and as learned as the famous Hy
patia of ancient times, she may have all tin
accomplishment considered requisite at tin
present day, and every advantage that wealtl
! cau procure, and yet if she lack a low swee
voice, she cau never be really fascinating.
How often the spell of beauty is rudeb
; broken by coarse, loud talking! How oftei
you are irresistibly drawn to a plain unassu
ming woman, whoso soft silvery tones yende
her positively attractive! Besides we fancy
we can judge of the character by the voice;
the studied, fawning tone seems to us to betoken
deceit and hypocrisy, as the musical
subdued tones indicate genuine refinement.
In the social circle, how pleasant it is to
hear the sex talk in that low key which always
characterizes the true lady ! In the
sanctuary of home, how much a voice soothes
the fretful child and cheers the weary husbaud.
How sweetly its cadences float
i through the sick chamber, and round the
dying bed, with what solemn melody do they
breathe a prayer for the departing soul ??
Ah yes! a low soft voice is certainly 'an excellent
thing in a woman.'
The Devil has a wonderful penchant foi
rebuking sin. Eyes which are full of beams,
have an unaccountable clearness of vision in
, detecting motes in other eyes. Some people
are brought into the world to accomplish
a marvelous mission, and that mission is tc
ferret out obliquities in others. Of course
it is not expected that these apostles have
any business with themselves; their mission
is violent, and does not admit of time tc
, scrutinize their own position. What profits
is it that they should pause to consider theii
own peccadilloes, when the enormities ol
their neighbors loom up like mountains?
I So goes the world over. Everybody mind.?
everybody's business, but everybody neglects
> his own. What sort of a world would thii
be, if we were without each other to feec
. upon ? Men have eyes and ears for some
purpose, and what else could they find foi
them to do, if not to see and hear of eacl
- ? ? i I?.*; x?
ottier s iamngs, aereucuons, erryro, uu.ua
, grcssions, enormities ? They have tongue!
which must lie uselessly idle, if not employee
t in giving currency to such delinquencies.?
i So it is with man. The obliquities of hi?
offended brother furnish the chief staple o:
conversational interest. Human error is th<
current coin of social intercourse, and to(
often the coin comes from the mint of the
( speaker's brain.

THE FLORENCE TRAGEDY.
Glennville, Ala., June 3, 18f>6.?
Messrs. Editors : Our community wasthrowr
into a state of great excitement yesterday
evening by the receipt of intelligence of t
most bloody assault made by a party of met
-? .1 ? i_i i i . p T :
! residing in tnc neignoornoou or uermgim or
i a number of citizens who were passing fron
Florence, Gn., to their homes in this county
The facts concerning this horrible outrage
as nearly as we have been able to ascertair
them, are about these :
For some years, Matthew Averett, sr., ha:
been keeping a ferry at Florence, on th<
Chatlahooche river, without a charter fron
the State of Georgia. In 1853, A. W. Hill
Esq., of Florence, Ga., applied for and ob
tained a charier from Georgia, for a ferry a
that place, and opened a road on his owr
land on this side of the river, leading iut<
the old Florence road, and stopped the roac
leading from Averett's ferry on the Georgit
, side, whereupon Averett erected a toll gat<
across the Florence road on the Alabama side
and demanded and collected the same toll a;
he would have received at the ferry.
The authority upon which Averett claim;
the right to do this, is an order of the Com
missioner's Court of Barbour County, Ala
bama, granted to him in 1848, to erect a tol
gate at the terminus of the Florence roac
on the West side of the Chattahooche river,
I and collect toll thereat, and forbids any per
j son to interfere with said gate within on<
! half mile on either side up and down th<
j river. lie has erected under this order 2
! gate several hundred yards back from th<
river, just at the point where Hill's road in
tersects the old road. Many persons hav<
paid a toll and many have refused to do so
but have removed the obstruction and passed
The matter has been*agitated for sometime
and the citizens on both sides of the rive;
have become very much excited, and hav<
"i 4 r\ ,
' repeatedly torn down tne gate, un yester
day several of Averett's relatives and hi;
! overseer armed themselves with double bar
' rel guns and proceeded to the gate to guarc
j it, and prevent persons from passing withoul
; paying toll. The names of said Iunderstanc
I to be Win. Cliatt, Jno. McClendon, Win

I themselves behind a fence in the adjoining
I field. Soon after they arrived there, Na
: thaniel "Roach, with his little son five year
- old, Robert Warlick, Samuel Triggers an<
i ' a man named Sylccs, arrived at the gate an<
1 were about to pass through, when the mei
i t fired on them from their place of conceal
1 j rnent. At the first fire Mr. Roach's littl
1 boy was wounded in the neck and bod}'?

c Triggers was the only man in the attaclcei
t I parly armed, and iiis gun would not go oi
' until too late to do any good.
I You can better imagine, thau we can de?
3 ' cribe, the excitement which prevails afte
i | such a shocking outrage. The officer," witi

i ticipates some trouble in arresting them.?

t' P. S. Glennville, June 3, 11 o'clock, a
m. A letter has just been received by J
I' | M. White, Esq., from Florence, Ga., statin;
a ! that five more men on arriving at Hill's ferr
got into the flat to cross the river. ?>ooi

they were fired upon by some persons concealed
in the bushes on the bank, and were
severely wounded. We have not learned the
names of the persons shot, or extent of their
injuries. The persons shot were some geni

to escort Mr. Koach, with his w'ottndcd child
i home, and were attacked on their return.

i me xeiegrapnic wire 01 tins morning gives
startling news from the scene of excitement
i in Kansas. Whatever be the truth there
> can be no doubt that war is commenced, and
! that men and means are necessary to sup:
port the cause of the South. When Ameri
ican soil was invaded by the Mexicans, elev>
en hundred of the sons of our Palmetto
) State volunteered to protect it, and anxious
ly followed the gallant Butler to the battlcf
field of American rights. Now, when Southern
rights, and the existence of the instituJ
tion which constitutes the framework of
) Southern society, civilization, and our very
i existence as a people, are invaded, does it
I not become them, with increased obligation,
i to come forward and do service in the cause
r which affects our very homes ?
i We find in the Newberry Mirror of yes
terday an article which suits the occasion,
3 and saves our writing out the same sentil
ments as are there expressed.
The suggestion is a good one for a conven3
tion?but if it is to be done, no time is to
f be lost:
3 Kansas?Can Nothing farther be
) Done ??The news from Kansas is of a most
i exciting character. It is Buch as to call for
redoubled efforts to save the Territory from
the grasp of the Abolitionist. The South
r must send more men, or we fear those alrea5
dy sent will be driven out by the Abolitionists.
The two parties are infuriated against
each other, blood has been spilt, and a de
cision by the sword seems inevitable.
Mr. Wilkes, one of the Anderson Compa
' ny who went out a short time since, returned
to get further aid. "We also see from our
5 Georgia exchanges that two of Buford's
! Company liave returned for the same pur
pose. There is a necessity for action, immediate
action. In the North strong efforts are
making to flood the territory with Northern
3 emigrants. The movement must be met by
the South or the Territory is gone.
? South Carolina has done a good deal, but
not all that she can or ought to do. She can
do ten times as much and not feel it. Let
the people arouse themselves to the magni;
tude of the crisis that is upon them.
Heretofore each District has acted separately.
Would not a Convention of all the
Associations in the State be expedient??
i Would it not bring the attention of the people
more thoroughly to the subject? Would
it not be the means of exciting a combined
effort in this great cause ?
We call the attention of editors to this
suggestion. If not this, some other plan
must be adopted to keep the ball in motion.
If Kansas is lost the South may surrender.
It will give an impulse and audacity
to abolition that nothing can arrest. Hence
I it is a question of life and death to the South.
Every district in South Carolina ought tc
address itself at once to the matter, and subscribe
at least an amount equal to the annual
tax. Let Newberry lead and the rest will
The War in Kansas.?If the new?

Inasmuch as application for patronage will be
node to the reading portion, of the community in
his and the adjoining Districts, justice alike to.the
interprise and to those who are asked to favor it,,
lemands that some account be given of its characer.
It is the work of a Divine of acknowledged^; '
nt and scholarship, of piety and success in,the
Ministry; of one who devoted himself to the std? s
ly of the Scriptures, and the preaching of the'
3ospel for upwards offorfy^years, withinasudn-?t
ty so intense, as to preclude him almost entirely,
rom the secular cares and purrnits, common t o
nany in "the sacred office.- The voluminous prOr
tactions of his pen that now lie in manuscript, be?
rides his Lectures on the New Testament, Heet
testimony to the Zealand industry with which he
prosecuted his Theological researches. until , "l
n a few years of his death. In the Lectures-.
ivliich wo here recommend to the favorable regard
?f the public,"the reader is presented with .a bar? '
mony of the Four Gospels, a .clear and consistent .
exposition of the Jeered Text; and a .large number
of Critical Notes and observe tionson obscure '
and difficult passages, and on important points in'
doctrinal Divinity. The .graild design of the author
evidently is, to assist his reader to acquire ? .
a sound and accurate understanding of the Mind
of the Spirit, imparted in" the Sacred Oracles,
whatever sacrifice of hiB own prepossessions, or
the prejudices of others, it may h&ve cost him. The
style of the work is purely didactic?site'pie
and Inornate?seeking rather to instruct, than
to please the taste. Much, however, will be found
in the perusal of the Commentary, to delight the
earnest student of the Scriptures; but that pleasure
will result, chiefly, from the unexpected and
wonderful manifestations which are tarnished,, of
the perfect harmony of oil the parts in the grand
scheme of salvation; their tadissolublecMmection, and
their intimate dependency upon each other,
from the eternal foundation, to the topmost stone
in the imperishable edifice." The writer of this
brief notice has given some portion of his time-to
the study of the Bible, and to the perusalofjJommentaries^ond
writings on Divinity, and heiScOtH
strained to acknowledge, that he feels' ranch indebted,
under God, to these Leotures, for the comfort
and satisfaction with which he is enabled to
read the New Testament Scriptures, especially the.
Epistolary portions of them. Persuaded that
others may be equally profited, he takes -pleasure
in recommending the work to the favorabte-lrbtiee *
of his fellow Christianseverywhete, and particular?
ly to that of Ministers of the Gosnel, and Students
in Divinity. While the plain and humble lover of
the Bible will be furnished with a safe and familiar
assistant to a correct knowledge of the pre
jious part of Divine Revelation, on which those
Lectures are written, and will find himself instructed,
encouraged, and comforted in Christ, the
Public Teacher of religious Truth will find in these
volumes a treasure, from which he may draw largely,
to the increase of his own spiritual wealth, lira
edification of the Church, apd the. salvation of

With this -view he eschews all thd senseless twiddle,

the matter of the SPECTATOR, to that which will

and the Executive Departmental the

inventions, including a weekly list of patents 1bsued
from the Patent Office; articles on education;
on agriculture, business and dojpestio economy;
and candid essays upon the leading topics of the
Though entertaining for themselves decided
views on questions of political'eoOnomy and relig-.
ions belief, the editors do not purpose to give to
the paper a partizan or a sectarian' character.?^ '
The discussion of these subjects they leave ^papers
established for such purpose. At the sanetime
they reserve to thejnselve the right to expose
hypocrisy, and to oppose bigotry and fanaticism
in all forms; and. of offering, when they deem occasion
to require it, their opiiilons and reasons
therefor on seperate questions involving the interests
and vested rights of tho people among whom
we are located, without thereby subjecting themselves
to a charge of vitiating any pledge.

Southern Literary Messenger,
FOR THE TEAR 1866.
IN issuing the Prospectus of the twenty-secood *
volume of the SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER,
the Proprietors rely solely on the encouraging
letters and promises of the friends of
the Messenger to aid them in extending its circulation,
and they beg to assure the^ public that
no exertions will be remitted on their poft to maintain
the high character of the work, and to challenge
the patriotism of all who value sterling litery
merit. For Twenty-one years the Messenger
has endeavored to reflect faithfully the Southern
mind, while disdaining all narrow and sectional
views, and bos been alone among the monthly periodicals
of America in defence of the peculiar
Institutions of the Southern States. To this- office
it will still be devoted, and will be promptto
repel assaults upon the South, whether they come
under the specious garb of fiction, or in the direct
form of anti-slavery pamphlets. At this critical
juncture, while our enemies are employing literature
as their most potent weapohs of attack, the
Southern people will surely ityt withhold their
encouragement from a work whose aim it'sball he
to strike blows in their defence;
The Messenger will, as heretofore, present its
readers with Reviews, Historical and Biographical
Sketches, Novels, Tales, Travels, Essays, Poems,
Critiques, and Papers on the Army, Navy, and
other National Subjects.
