The queenly Mra. L. B. was attractively attired in

her troops of admirers desired no greater happiness
tiian to get on the scent of her Sozodont-aweetened
sigh*, and track. her through the sinuous course
among the gay and restless multitude. ^
Mill B. P,, with that- repugnance to ostentation in
dress which is no peculiar to her sex, waa attired in a
simple white lace collar, fastened with a neat pearl
button solitaire. The contrast between the sparkling
vivacity of .her natural optic and the steadfast atten
tiveness of her placid glass eyes, was the subject of
general and enthusiastic remark.
The radiant and sylph dike Mrs. T., late of your
State, wore hoops. She showed to good advantage,
and created a sensation wherever she appeared.
Miss C. L. B. had her nose elegantly enameled, and
the eaey grace with which she blew it from time to
time, marked her aa a cultivated and accomplished
woman of the world; ita exquisitely modulated tone
excited the admiration of all who had the happiness to
bear it, etc.
There la an old saying that “ You may lead a horse
to.water, but you cannot foroe him to drink.” It is a
homely but truthful illustration of the complete help
lessness of recognized force when contending against
that impalpable thing we are accustomed to style pas
sive resistance. Hungary taught the world a lesson,
wnen, for eighteen years, she remained quiet and im
movable, yielding neither to menaces nor blandish
ments, but standing simply on her rights, and await
ing calmly their recognition. There waa in this ex
pectant attitude an aver present sense of danger, from
which Austria has finally been compelled to relieve
herself by conceding to Hungary all, or nearly all, that
she has ever demanded.
The signal success which has thus been aohlsved by
the Hungarians, has incited the people at Yenetta to
follow their example. They silently submit to the
presence of Austrian troop# in their midst, but as
carefully avoid all social contact with them. They
pey, without u murmur, such taxes as are imposed
upon them. They indulge In no threats; they obey no
order* other than those that can l^ally be enforced.
They are oontent. simply, to endure and " bid* their
time.” But a few months ago Austria issued a proc
lamation of amnesty to such Venetians aa left the prov
ince and joined the army of Italy during the war which
closed with the treaty of Villa Trance. But the
Venetian patriots had no confidence in Austrian
promises and prudently kept aloof. On the approach
of the recent Carnival season, which was ushered In
with feasting, dancing and masquerading at Home,
Venice waa almdet literally "the silent city by the
” The few Venetian families of eminence who
still reside there shnt themselves up in their houses,
and none of the preparations that custom sanc
tioned In other eities ware made by the municipality
to provide for the enjoyment of the populace. There
was to be no dancing for the Veneciana in the pres
ence of the hated Tedeachi. Austria, however, de
termined otherwise. It would be an affront to her
paternal role If the gay season warn marked by sol
emn visages. The people mnet be amused, and to the
end that there might, at least, be the semblance of
enjoyment, the Imperial authorities demanded of the
municlpality-of. Venice % subsidy to he appropriated
to the getting up a grand mask ball at the San Bene
detto Theatre- The mUhifipaUty met, talked over tbs
matter, and in the name of their Podeeta’ or Chief
Magiitrate, Count Bern bo, refuted to Tote a single
florin. General Toggenburg, the Imperial Comman
dant, reported the refusal to Vienna. An order cams
beck directing, him to Insist, on obedience. Count
Bembo Was forthwith summoned to appear before the
Imperial Lieutenant. In the Interview that auo-
oeeded, tbe Podesta waa enjoined to cause the
municipality to provide at one* tba sum
of six thousand florins for the uses of the thea
tre, under the threat that if this waa not done all fur
ther collection of the municipal tax on wine and oil
would be prohibited. Count Bembo quietly reaffirm
ed the refusal of the municipality to grant the subsi
dy. Toggenburg grew hasted and charged the Podes
ta and the members of the municipality with being
factious; whereupon the Podesta retired, and, at a
late hour on the .same day, wrote the following letter
Sir—I called on you to-day with a view of proposing
aoma mode of arranging this vexatious case of the
theatre. The duties of my position forced me tb do
*0. Your Excellency chose to carry the disouaskm
Into quite different grounds, and permitted yourself
to us* words SO exasperating that neither my
honor,, my character, nor my education oould endure
it. I beg to resign into your hand* my commission
as Podestto* Venice. Bimbo.
Accompanying ths letter was another oonveying the
resignation of the entire municipality. At Padua/ths
second city of importance In Venetia, the same orders
were reasived ana were followed by the same results.
At tbe last advices Toggenburg had two cl ties with
out municipal governments on his hands, and was
searching In vain for respectable Italians to take the
place* of those who had resigned, well knowing that
to fill them with Austrian protogea would only make
ths matter worse. What has happened since, of
course, we do not know. If the San Benedetto theatre
was thrown open and the grand masked hail came off,
It moat have beet* solely under Austrian management,

Dlionkr in Memphis.
The Memphis Argus has the following: On the 20th
of February Charles Heard, Joaiah Foster and a Mr.
Basham, citizens of Crawford County, Arkansas, were
murdered about six mile* from Johnson’s Station, in
Choctaw Nation.. It appears, from what could bees-
certained, that Heard and Basham were klHad while
asleep, their skull* being split open with an axe, in
the tent, as they were found lying on their beds.
Foster, it appears, was awakened, and attempted to
make his escape, when he waa knocked down and
killed. I^ie tent waa set fire to and burned down over
the bodies of Heard, and Basham. They had consid
erable money with them on their way to Texas, and
had two negroes .with them. It it supposed they war*
the perpetrators. They were seen toe next day not
far from ths place, with Mr. Heard’s buggy,
their way towards Texas.
A correspondent from New Madrid to the Memphis
Argus says that the recent difficulty originated In the
fact that an «x-FaderaI soldier killed a negro, with
whom.be hed some difficulty. The negroes inst ead
fanned*company to massacre all the white j
tion. The citizens got word of the
pared for the went On Sunday night the nqgfoes
commenced by firing several shots Into a house, one
ball narrowly missing a young girl in the act of pray
ing. The dtUens, two bandied in number, upon the
first signs of an outbreak, charged upon the negroes
and captured three of the leaders, two of whom they
shot, and hung the other. At a negro doggery, on the
comer of De Soto and Beale streets, 1 y, a. m., a negro
named fke Campbell waa shot, and soon died. An
other whs shot in the same house yesterday.

The oration was worthy of ■ Elijah Pogrom.

stitutions. What the tenure of land in Great Britian
or the occupation ot Asiatic forts by this country have'
to do with President Lincoln's birthday it ia not easy
to understand, nor dees there seam to be much room
far comparison between Lord Palmerston, who for up
wards ef fifty years was concerned in all the chief af
fair* of Europe and America, and President Lincoln,
Who happened to hold' office during four years in a
domestic war.' But these matters were dragged in
that the speaker might have an opportunity to rail at
and vilify .the country whose language he waa speak-
frig and Whose authors he had in former times done
his best to imitate. The taste which could invite an
English minister and his ■**(T in order to Inflict upon

Mr. Bancroft probably know* enough of England to

discussion of toe coming reform bill unaffected by his
declaration tost it is to “bury toe dead,” to “remove
the'won* out government of a-elass," and “to confide
right/ulpowerto the people.” It ia not the effect
here, but the effect in America that is of importance.
Can this mischievous old man believe that any, pur

and are sufficiently watchful in maintaining them;
they do not require to beconstantiy bounded on

of public affairs if .they are made to believe that Eng
land is a country where the mass of the people is pow

about four miles from this city, Mrs. O’Brien and her
son, Edwin, were stopped by three negro men dressed
in citizens' clothes. One of the negroes inquired the
way to Washington city. Mrs. O’Brien informed him
of toe direction. As the carriage moved on again, two
of to* negroes cried out “Halt.” One of them, pre
senting his pistol at the head of Edwin, without warn
ing, fired, toe ball taking effect in the right side of his
neck. Tbe negroes then proceeded to rob the person
of Edwin of his purse, and rifled tbe carriage of ita con
tents of goods, Ac., threatening aH the time to kill Mrs.
O’B- if she made the slightest alarm or resistance. At
this juncture toe negroes saw Error six men approach
ing, and made hastily off with -their' booty. No clue
has since been obtained of thefr whereabouts. Dr. J. B.
Johnson was carfStf'To examine the case, and found
that toe ball had penetrated the right side of the neck
of young Mr. O’Brien, inflicting a severe and dan-
gerous wound, leaving the patient in an exceedingly
critical condition.—Alexandria Gazette.

The Southern Dead. j
A Colombo*! lady tends ns toe following from to*
Enquirer of that city, with the request to use our in
fluence in the furtherance of toe object pro;
posed. We can do this no more effectually than by
copying the communications she encloses:
THE GRAVES OF THE SOLDIERS.
Editor Enquirer : The ladies are now and hava
been for several days, engaged in the sad but pleasant
duty of ornamenting and improving that portion of
the city cemetery sacred to the memory of our gallant
Confederate dead; but we feel it an unfinished work
unless a day be set apart annually for ita es
pecial attention. We cannot raise monumental shaft*
and inscribe thereon their many deeds of heroism,
but we can keep alive the memory of toe debt we
owe them by dedicating at least one day in each year
to embellishing their bumble graves with flowers.—
Therefore,-w* beg the - assistance of the . press, and
the ladies throughout toe sooth, to aid u*
In our efforts to set apart a certain day, to
be observed from toe - Potomac to toe Rio
Grande, and be handed down through time, aa a re
ligions custom of the country, to wreathe the grave*
of our martyred dead with flowers. (We would pro
pose toe 6th of April, as at that time our land might be
truly called “the laad of flowers.”) Let every city,
town and village join in the pleasant duty. Let all be
alike remembered, from toe heroes of Menus*, to
toooe who expired amid toe death throe* of oar hal
lowed cause. We’ll crows alike tbe honored resting
places of to* Immortal Jackson, in Virginia, Johnston
of Shiloh, Cleburne, In Tennessee, and toe boat at
gallant private* Who adorned our ranks. All did their
duty, and to all we owe our gratitude.
“ Let toe soldiers’ graves, for that day at least, be
the southern Mecca, to whose shrine her sorrowing
women, like pilgrims, may annually bring their
grateful hearts sad floral offerings. And when wn
remember the thousands who were buried ” with
their martial cloaks around them," without Christian
ceremony of interment for toair beloved bodies, wo
would invoke the aid of toe most thrilling elo
quence throughout the land to inaugurate this
custom, by delivering on toe appointed day,
thia year, an eulogy on toe nnbnrled dead of our glo
rious southern army. They died for their country 1
Whatoer toair country had, or had not, th* right to
demand toe sacrifice, la no longer a question of dis
cussion with us. We leave that for future nations to
decide. That It waa demanded—^that they nobly re
sponded and fell holy sacrifice* on their country’s al
tar, and are thoreby entitled to their country’s grati
tude—none will deny. The proud banner under which
they rallied in defence of toe nobleat cans* for which
' is rose and fought, or trusting woman prayed hae
>een furled forever, the country for which they suf
fered and died has now no name or place among the
nations of the earth. Legislature enactments may not
now be made to do honor to their memories, but tbs
veriest radical that aver traced his genealogy back to
toe deck of toe May Flower could not deny ns to* eim-
llege of paying honor to those who died de
toe life-honor and happiness of the .
