An unfortunate Family.
The man that don't take the newspaper
was in town yesterday, lie brougnt tne
whole family in a two-horse wagon. lie
still belived that General Taylor was
President, and wanted to know if the
Kamtschatkians had taken Cuba, and, if
so where they had taken it. He had sold
his corn for twenty-five cents the price
being thirty-one but upon goin. to de
posit the money, they told him it was
mostly counterfeit. The only hard mon
ey he had was some three-cent pieces,
and those some sharper had "run on him,;
for half dimes. His old lady smoked a
"cob pipe," and would not beli re that any
thing else could be used. One of the
boys went to the Blacksmith's shop to be
measured for a pair of shoes, and another
mistook the market-house for a church.
After hanging his hat on a meat-hook he
piously took his seat on a butcher's stall
and listened to an auctioneer, whom he
took to be a preacher. He left before
'meetin' was out," and hud no great opin

One of the girls took a lot of seed-onions
to the Postoltice to trade them for a
letter. She had a baby, which she carri

to rock it on the side-walk. When it
cried she stuffed its mouth with an old
stocking and sung "Barbara Allen."

that Heaven was the only atmosphere

his departure seems to bring his spiritual

tender grief whicu sootaes, like an opiate

The world to her is no longer filled with
human love and hope in the future, so
glorious with heavenly love and joy; she
has treasures of happiness which the
worldly, unehastened heart never con
ceived. The bright fresh flowers with

apartment where her infant died, are
mementoes of the far brighter litres now

Influence of Females on Society.
From an accurate account of the condi
tion of women in any country, it would
not be difficult to infer the whole state of
society. So great is the influence they
exercise on the character of men, that the
latter will be elevated or degraded accord
ing to the situation cf the weaker sex.
Where women are slaves, as in Turkej',
the men will be the same; where they are
treated as moral beings where their
minds are cultivated, and they are con
sidered equals the state of society must
be high, and the character of the men en
ergetic and noble. There is so much
quickness of comprehension, so much sus
ceptibility of pure and generous emotion
in women, that they constantly stimulate
men to exertion, and have, at the same
time, a most powerful agency in soothing
the angry feelings, and in mitigating the
harsh and narrow propensities which are
generated in the strife of the passions.
The advantages of giving a superior
education to women are not confined to
themselves, but have a salutary influence
on our sex. The fear that increased in
struction will render them incompetent or
neglectful in domestic life, is absurd in
theory, and completely destroyed by facts.
AN omen, as well as nu n, when once es
tablished in life, know that there is an end
of trilling; its solicitudes and duties mul
tiply upon them equally fast; the former
are apt to feel them much more keenly,
and too frequently abandon all previous
meet them from shame, if not from sym-'
pathy. If a man finds that his wife is not
a mere nurse or a housekeeper; that she
can, when the occupations of the day are
over, enliven a winter's evening; that she
can converse on the usual topics of litera
ture, and enjoy the pleasures of superior
conversation, or the reading of a valuable
book, he must have a perverted taste, in
deed, if it does not make home still dear
er, and prevent him from resorting to
taverns for recreation. The benefits to
her children need not be mentioned; in
struction and cultivated taste in a mother
enchances their respect and alfection for
her and their love of home, and throw a
charm over the whole seen'1 of a domestic
An Italian Heroine.
Onorata Iludianl wielded at once the
painter's pencil and the warrior's sword.
She is quite a personage of romance, and
we are surprised that she has never figur
ed in novel or poetry. In her twenty-third
ye'ir, she had already attained so great a
reputation for artistic skill that Gabrino
Fondulo, tyrant of Cremono, committed
to her care the adornment of his palace.
Onorata would willingly have declined
this equivocal honor, but the Marquis
would listen to no refusal, and to excite
the anger of a man at once so vindictive

Onorata was not destined to labor long
in the service of Fondola. One day, whib
occupied in painting the

his disipated : ahits, entered the room,:'
, anj oli,,rtj so;ae nniustihed liberties.
The young artist indignantly repulsed
him, and on his returning to the charge,
she seized a dagger which she always
wore concealed in her bod dice, and stab
bed him to the heart. Then rushing from
the palace disguised herself in man's at
tire and fled 'o the mountains, declaring
she would rather perish in exile and a
wanderer, but pure and untainted, than
enjoy splendor and dishonor at home.
The Marquis was furious; and sent sol
diers in every direction in pursuit, with
orders to bring her back, alive or dead;
but, unable to discover the place of her
retreat, and finding no one ai le to com
plete her labors, he promised full and
entire pardon on condition of her instant
return. Onorata, ho vever, had effected
her escape from his dominions. Retain
ing her disguise she obtained admittance
into one of the companies of Condottieri
then investing Italy, and, ly her courage
and conduct, soon rose to the post of Cap
tain. Her warlike spirit delighted in the
independence and excitement of her new
career; she refused to abandon it, and
continued to fight and paint alternately
for thirty years. In 1472 her native
town, Casteliione, was beseiged by the
Venetians. Onorata, at the head of her
company, flow to its-relief, she forced the
army to raise the seige, but was mortally
wounded, and died in the conflict a few

A perusal af Russell's India letters to
the London Times will satisfy any one that
the reconquest of the country is far from
being accomplished, if it is not actually j

settling down into a guerilla warfare of
interminable duration. The extent of
territory is so great, so many real soldiers
are occupied in watching others nominal
ly in the ranks, the climate is so destruct
ive and enervating, and the enemy's for
ces are so fragmentary and scattered,
that scarcely any signs of progress are
perceptible. A good sized detachment of
British troops, cf course, carries all before
it but then, likely enough, it can turn
about and return over the same ground,
encountering the show of opposition, re
peating the process till weary of it. By
the last return the British army in India
presented a total of 4S,-571 officers and
men of whom 4,0-57, were on the sick list.
The artillery numbered three hundred
and fifty-five effective pieces. We are
surprised to learn also that the grand to
tal of native troops mustard no less than
121,000 non-commissioned officers and
men, being in the proportion of about
three to one of the European troops; but
there is a still more striking item in the
strength of the allied force, under the
head of disarmed native troops of all
ranks; there being a return of 20,227 men;
these men receiving pay, and, more than
that, paralyzing the action of a very large
proportion of the British solders. With
out reckoning the troops employed in the
various field forces and moveable Col-
umns, there h no less than 107 military
posts and stations in tlv Presidency of
