A Touching Scexe. —The New York Tribune records the following beautiful incident connec toJ with the attentions of the Hungarian refu gees: —“On Monday morning, three Germany evidently workingmen, went to the Astor House and asked to sec the Hungarians. They were immediately introduced, and remained some timo in conversation with Gov. Ujhazy and family. Finally twoof them withdrew and left llie third, who continued to talk but seemed to have something tu say which he could not get out. At last, addressing Mile. Clara, the daugh ter of Mr. Ujhazy, he said that as exiles who w ere remote from their country and friends and whose property had been confiscated in conse quence of their devotion to freedom and people's rights, they must be in an embarrassed condi tion. Then drawing from his pocket a bank note he said, “Fraulein, this is but little, for I am poor man, and have only what I can earn, hut I could not refrain from giving the tribute of my mite to you. Receive this, I beg you as the heart ottering of a workman to the defenders of liberty.’ Mile. Ujhazy, who had not expec ted anything of this kind, and was rather em barrassed, replied in a tone of emotion, that she was deeply grateful for such kindness, but that they were not in a condition to ask it, when her father said : “Take it, my daughter, and feel thyself and us all more honored than if a mon arch had bestowed millions upon thee !” at the same time warmly pressing the hand of the no ble laborer, and assuring him that they could nevef forget him. Wo leave our r caders to im agine the scene.’ Melancholy Affair. — We learn (says the IS. O. I’icayune of Monday) from a passenger on the steamer Antics Crocker, from Red River this morning, that an affair of honor took place at Shreveport on or about the 20lli ull., between the Hon. D Hester, formerly a Representative of Ca Ido parish, and Ur. Green, of Shreveport, ill which both parties lost their lives. Abundance of Gold. —Nearly sixteen mill ions of gold is lying in the coffers of the Back of England, unemployed. The heavy receipts of this commodity from Russia and California, excited much interest among the political econo mists of England; and causes the future effects of such a plethora upon the currency of the country to become a fruitful topic of discussion. A Nation of Convicts. —The English Gov ernment is in want of anew convict land- Australia, so long a depot for outcasts, lias be come so strong and aristocratic, that she refuses to receive more convicts. The same feeling ex ists at the Cape of Good Hope, so that Britain must hunt up some corner of the Globe, for a new penal colony. Australia not only refuses to receive convicts, hut, with her nearly three million inhabitants, begins to talk about inde pendence from the mother country. It would be a phenomenon to see the transported vaga bonds of England rise into a competing and rival empire. A Monster Ox —There is an ox in Cam bridge, Mass-, which now weighs 3,700 pounds, and it is thought by good judges that iu less than three months time he will weigh nearly if not quite 5,000. His owner, Justin Marey, Esq , states that the animal never has been stall-fed, and that he intended to fatten him during the present winter. He was raised in Stanstead, Canada, by Lewis E. Rose, Esq., and measures eleven feet frotn the nose to the rump, six feet in height, and nine feet six inches in girth, and is but seven years old. Methodists in England.— lt is stated that the members of the Wesleyan Society, in Great Britain, number 348,274, and estimating tbo numbe.r of attendants and hearers at two-thirds more, the whole number of persons of this per suasion is about 900,000, besides which there are 100,000 Methodists of other classes. The significant facts are stated that the Government, as administered by Sir Robert Peel, had owned itself defeated in a favorite measure solclv by the Wesleyan Methodists' opposition ; that the I Wesleyan Missionary Society takes the lead in I the matter of income, while no other denomina- I turn has attempted anything like its centenary fund—about <gt 1 ,"300,000. Nicaraguan Affairs.— We find the follow* | mg paragraph in the United Service Gazette : j “ We have heard, from good authority, that Lord Palmerston is determined to allow of no Arneri- I tan interference in Nicaraguan affairs, and that, at all events, British interests shall not be menaced either on the West Indies’ side or the Pacific side of Nicaragua. llis Lordship, we are informed, has acted most promptly in the matter, and that, in order to forward despatches to the Commander in Chief in the Pacific on the subject, the West India packet was detained lor sumo hours at Southampton. Rear Admiral Hornby, it is said, is ordered up with his squad ton to cruise in the neighborhood of Panama, and to he within call of the British Charge d'Affairs ®t Nicaragua." ______________ " ,lv Course of Trade.—Among tho impor. ■ by the Empire City are several casks of I China ware, chests of tea, and several packages 1 silks, direct from China, and consigned by I Jvnn and Livingston, San Francisco to I I-i' ington, Wells and Go., of Now York. These I ne the first direct importations from China to I this city by way of the Isthmus, the forerunner Ia valuable trade. ■ , " AMS -—The Southern Cultivator notices some ■ lls exhibited at the Georgia State Fair, which ■ y l . rt) "ae, two, three, and four years old.

We have concluded to drop you a line on the prospects of the Cotton crop, as we perceive you are getting up estimates in your city. Piices here continue firm, notwithstanding the late de cline per “Europa,” as the general belief in the undoubted shortness of the crop is gaining ground daily. The late advices from the prin cipal shipping ports on the rivers, report that two-thirds of the Cotton is in, and that the fall ing off in the receipts at this port will be very evident in January. The writer (J. W.) having lived some fifteen years in the interior, has ample means of infor mation on the subject, and were we to alter our first estimate of the crop (2,200,000,) we would reduce rather than increase that figure. It is a great mistake you seem to be falling into in New York, that the fine weather for “ picking'' would naturally increase the crop. In ordinary years it would no doubt do good, and it has, we pre sume been beneficial in Georgia, where they had much rain, but in this State, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, where heavy rains con tinued up to a late period, the fine weather lias done no good in making new Cotton, the new formations having rotted and been destroyed by the worms together. We are getting accounts now daily from the interior, that there is great disappointment on the part of the planters, as to the yield, and vie have but little doubt ourselves, that the great hulk of the crop will be at the ports in Februa ry, as it is now, in fact, all gathered. Thu good roads and high piices have induced planters to forward to market, and this will account to you for the heavy receipts. Several rivers also have been navigable (Tennessee and Tombigbee,) owing to the continued rains in August; so tha l we havo received some 40,000 bales from North Alabama and Tennessee already, never before received till after January. The same case at Mobile, as regards the Tombigbee river. We therefore repeat that we consider 2.200,000 bales a high estimate of the crop.’ American Tf.a. — The New Y r ork Journal of Commerce publishes a letter from Ur. Junius Smith, dated at Greenville, S. C., by which it appears that he still entertains sanguine hopes of being able to compete successfully with the Chinese in the cultivation of tea. Ur. Smith says that his expectations are fully realized, and gives an interesting history of Ins first experi ment in the culture. He at first limited himself to one acre, and having obtained satisfactory results from this, his plantation was cp.l; irl , e( j and lie now states that he expects r.ey't Spring to plant out forty acres. In a Pamphlet published in 1848, on the subject of tea, Dr. Smith esti mates that 547 pounds may be grown upon an acre, and that at this rate it would require only 20,109 acres to supply the total consumption in the United States. Experiment has proved that thoplant will stand cold weather without injury. A Painful Incident. — A correspondent of the New York Evening I’ost comments upon the scene of the House presented when the dupli city of Mr. W.J. Brown was first discovered, and details an incident which carries with it a moral that should not he lost. “One of the most painful incidents in this whole scene I have not yet mentioned. It was taken fnrgranted on all hands, before the House met, that lirown would be elected on the first or second ballot. He had prepared his installa tion speech, and his poor wife had gone with him to tiic House to share his triumph She was in the gallery of the House when his pros pects were so ignominiously blasted Had that fact been generally known to the members, it is probable that she would have been spared much of the agony which the scene before her must have occasioned " Naturalization of Females. —Many women, says the New York Tribune, who come from Europe and intend residing perrnaneiilly in cite United States, think, as they cannot expect to vote, there is no use of their becoming natural ized ; hut this is a very serious mistake. By the law, the property escheats to the State, and it is the duty of the Attorney General to see that estates, which would descend to the wife, if she was a citizen, arc taken by the State. Previous to the year 1845, public informers could draw the one-eighth of property informed of thus seized, but by change of the law this is no lon ger the case. It is now lefttn the power of per sons who are at enmity with a widow thus to inform and have her all taken away. Os course, cases of this kind are few ; the widow is usually allowed to enjoy property unmolested, hut she cannot make a title to it, and if she attempts to sell, or when she dies and ln-r heirs dispose of her estate, litigation almost certainly ensues, and on examination he State seizes the property in dispute. Gases of this kind are constantly occurring; thousands of dollars are thus lost annually. and all women not naturalized should become so at once. Indiana Colleges, &c.—We learn from Gov. Dunning’s annual message to the Legisla ture of Indiana, that there are five universities and colleges in that State ; Indiana Asbury Uni versity, which presents a catalogue of 295 stu dents ; Indiana Uni\ ersity, which numbers 197 ; Hanover College, 183; Wabash College, 148, with a library of 6000 volumes and a rich geo logical cabinet, and Franklin College numbers 145, making an aggregate of 968 scholars receiv ing collegiate instruction. Cruf.l Haste of Accusation.— A young girl, at service, in a wealthy family in New York, was accused of stealing two wine-coolers which hadbeen missed. She was committed to prison, where she contracted a sickness which caused her death. Recently, the family being about to repair to Europe, commenced packing their plate, when tho wine-coolers were found undis turbed. A Swindler. —Public notice has been given from Princeton, N. J , warning Southern parents against an impostor who has been levying money at the South, chiefly in Alabama and Mississippi. Ho is described as representing himself at some places as a student from Princeton College, at others as one from Yale ; sometimes going under the name of Simpson, and at other times assum ing tho names of young men atone and other of the above colleges. In this way he lias been entrusted by the parents or guardians of students with sums of money, etc., to bring on to them. Several of the students at Princeton have been thus swindled to a considerable amount. To prevent such mishaps in future, this notice is given. He is about five feet six or seven inches in height, thick set, with sandy hair, and has one of his eye teeth considerably decayed and dis figured. There is an oak on the domain of the Grand Duke of llesso Darmstadt, which is believed to he a thousand years old ; its trunk measure* I thirty-six feet in circumference. 4< istlieolnfcsl I rce in Germany. ITEMS. Mr. Mappin, of Sheffield, has invented a razo r possessing the keenness of the lancet point, while it retains the temper and lasting qualities of the steel. St. Petersburg is to be lighted with electricity, by order of the Etnperor, if practicable. Expe riments on n large scale arc being made in vaii. ous parts of the city for the purpose. Several of the Indian Chiefs concerned in the late disturbances on Lake Superior, have been examined at Toronto, and discharged from arrest, at least for the present. The general feeling at Toronto is that the Indians have been shame, fully treated by the whites. It is estimated that there are in London 28,577 needle-women, under twenty years of age, the average earnings of each being four pence half penny a day. By a typographical error in one of our exchan ges, we learn that two cows were cut into calves by the railroad train. Two daughters of Dr. Bathurst, late Bishop of Norwich, England, have lately been received into the Roman Catholic Church. A young German Catholic Priest, named Au gustus Schmidt, committed suicide in Baltimore on Sunday last, by hanging himself in the loft of an out-house. A child of Philip Mordecai, between four and five years old, was burned to death at Norfolk, on Friday, by setting fire to its clothes, while playing with lucifer matches. It had been lef t alone only five minutes. Henry Rex Browne, the negro that escaped from Richmond, Va., last summer, by being pac ked in a box and shipped xs merchandise, is now getting up a panorama of “The Slave Trade and Life on a Plantation.” A lady recently died at Berlin, after inha ling ether to deaden her nerves while a tooth was drawn. The New Y'ork sun speaks ot persons in that city, moving in fashionable society, who are nothing but spies supported by foreign govern ments to watch the actions of private individuals and public men, and especially their uv/n gouir trymen, to report to their governments. We learn from the Floridian that ten thousand dollars hf.vts Direr,.ly been subscri bed towards tl'.e establishment ofa acotton fac tory in that place, Sunday, the 16th of December, was the anni versary of the destruction of the tea in Boston harbor, which took place in 1773, seventy-six years ago. A sailor, convicted of striking a superior offi' ccr, recently reccived2s lasheson his bare hack, witli the cat-o’-nine-tails. The punishment was inflicted on board the U. S. sloop of war Ger mantown at Norfolk. In France the political excitement has taken the form of individual duels. Half a dozen have occurred, and all with bloodless results M. Pierre Bonaparte figure in no less than three or four. During the performance of’Romeo and Juliet,' at the Sheffield Theatre, England, lately, Mrs. Saville, who enacted the part of Romeo, attack ed Tybalt under such stage excitement, that she actually stabbed him in the side. The near ly murdered Tybalt (Mr. Ualfc) is recovering. The President of France, and several other benevolent persons, have raised a capital of of above $20,000 for building loading houses for the working classes. It is said that General Haynnu, in reply to a lady who besought pardon for her husband, sla ted that an armistice would bo issued on the first of January, JBSO. An influential and wealthy German, Mr. Hol zcndorll Viermannsdoff, proposes to form a soci ety for the emancipation of'tlie people in Europe, to commence with preparing the way by their moral improvement. W. 11. Prescott is said to he. engaged upon a “Life of Philip the Second of Spain,” which will bo published during the coining vear. The annual arrests in London for criminal offences are said to he 8,500, and the number of known thieves and pickpockets 116,538 ! A gentleman largely engaged in hog-slaugh tering this se.ason, says the Cincinnati Commer cial, estimated that the number of hogs to be slaughtered this year will exceed 400,000. Up to Saturday week, about 250,000 had been killed and packed. Tiie London papers speak highly of anew invention by a Mr. Hall, by which ’lie combus tion of coal in steam furnaces is rendered as per fect as possible. The floor of the furnace con sists of long bars inclined at a considerable an gle, and slowly moved backwards and forwards in a certain order by means oferentrics working on the small axle, which act upon teeth, with which the bars are supplied.—The machinery is said to bo simple and effective. It is said that gutla perclm can be used for large printing letters, and that impressions from metal types. The whole number of Indians in Florida does not exceed 822, and only 137 of these are war riors,— the rest wonen and children. It is strange that such a handful of people are so frequently capable of disturbing the public peace. The Lake Trade of New York and Boston for the year IB4T it is estimated. \vjl| amount to nearly $75,000,000 in value. This commerce is said to double itselfevery four years. In 1844 it was more than $84,000,000. The Convention of the. State of Kentucky has decided to incorporate in anew Constitution, a clause excluding anyone who has fought a duel, or sent a challenge, from office in the Common, wealth. The Cuban revolutionists have revived tho schemes, und opened an office at Washington, as the head quarters af the leaders and promo ters of tho enterprise. Attached to the various religious denomina tions in the United States, there are over 30,000 bishops, ministers, priests, or clergy. It is recorded in Chinese history that in the reign of King Ti, (A. D. 555,) “the people be gan to sit with their legs hanging down ;" i. 0., they used chairs ! The foundation or content must spring up in a man’s own mind ; and lie who has so little knowl edge of human nature ns to seek liapincss by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts, and multiply the griefs which he purposes to remove. A London paper says that portraits in oil of any size, are now taken by a photngrophic pro. cess in sitting nfaltalf a minute. The process is ea I led ph o t o-prosopon. It is estimated that not less than twenty-two millions of pounds sterling offoreign capital have been invested in English securities, in conse quence of the disturbed state of Europe during t he last eighteen months. A government expedition has been sent out to explore the Pimienta, a part of the mountain chan of the Cordilleras, with a view of ascer taining whether there exists in that region a city, and a people, with whom no communication has as yet been established. It is stated that the hangman of the Mannings will probably realize £l5O by the sale of the clothes of the wretched culprits. He received seventy guineas from Madame Tussaud, for the suit in which Rush was executed ; anil she is reported to have made £ISOO by the exhibition of her wax model of Rush, in her famous gallery. Dr. Scoresby in a recent address nt Whitby, Yorkshire, expressed his confident belief in the safety of Sir John Franklin and his upon the supposition that had there been any catastrophe, some few of the one hundred and forty scientific and hardy voyagers would cer tainly make their way to some fishing station. A meeting was recently held in London, ad vocating the abolition of capital punishment Several judges, Mr. Cobden, Mr. Ewart, and other members of Parliament were present. The question is to be brought before Govern ment speedily. At Stockton-upon-Tees, a theatrical piece has been produced called “Rush ; or, the Stanfield Hall Murder,'* in which all the shocking inci dents of that horrible affair aic represented, not omitting the distinguishing exhibition of the ex ecution. A post runner at Orkney,near Berwick, whose daily travel on foot was thirty-two miles, with about eight miles of additional offerries—lately died. He hud been thus occupied during a peri od of twenty-nine years, and consequently had traversed in all 117,000 miles by land on foot, and 1,000 miles by sea across ferries, making a total of 130,000 miles. A copy of “Doomsday Book" has lately been presented to Dr. Shepherd’s library at Preston, by Mr. Pender, the Mayor of the town. Mr- T. P. Lewis, son of the Celebrated come dian, has bequeathed £lu,ooo to the National Gallery of London, with the request that his father s por'Taiimny be there exhibited. Ur. B'jckland, the geologist, proposes a plan f°r supplying London with freshwater in any quantity, by means of an open canal, which should receive the rain water from an area of some 2,500 square miles, which now flows into the Thames, near Henley. It is remarked that on the recent observance of the public thanksgiving day in England, there was nota single instance of police interference or arrest in London—a fact unparalleled even on a Sabbath. On that day £4OOO was collec ted at the various churches in contributions for the poor. Her Majesty’s ship Pandora arrived at Ports mouth from the Pacific a few weeks ago, with gold dust to the value of £IOO,OOO on freight. Mr. D’lsraeli has stated that the lands of Bri tain are mortgaged for an amount twothirdsas great as the national debt. And the interest on these mortagages, and the interest on the nation al debt, and the support of the whole govern ing aristocracy, comes upon the back of the la borer. The Roman Catholics observed a day of pub lic thanksgiving in their churches, on the 25th of November, as none of the Catholic clergy, in London, had died of cholera. A splendid cxibition of French industry, in cluding superb furniture, tapestry, jewelry &c., wasrecently opened to the British public at 13 George street, Hanover Square. Among other curious works of art, were a magnificent missal, made for the Queen of Spain, and some splen didly carved liine-ivood book covers. The last British Navy List states that there are 671 vessels, large and small, in the British navy. Numerically, this is the largest naval force in the world, but the list includes various craft to a great extent useless. An invention of novel character has been madein Paris. By a simple yet ingenious me chanism, the foldingof the newspaper, which has hitherto been performed by the hand, is now effected by a peculiar machine. With the assistance afone person to attend to it, ibis nia. chine will fold 2000 newspapers an hour. During the performances of divine service in the Episcopal church at Honesdale, N. J. on Christinas eve, part of the plastering of the ceil ing became detached, and fell to the floor, a dis- : tance of twenty feet. The church was crowded in every pari, except exactly where the plarter ing fell, directly in front of the pulpit, yet no lives were lost. Dr. King, the American Missionary in Greece, is now assisted in various educational labors at Athens, by Professor Sophocles, a 1 Greek. For several years he was connected I with Harvyard College, in Massachusetts. Prot. ' 8. is untiring in his eflorts to reform and enligh- j ten his country men, and regai dless of the former I popular out cry against I)r King, and the perse- | secution he has suffered. Sophocles stands reso lutely by him. When water freezes it forms itself into crys tals with interstices, and expands : hence, ice swims, and is eight parts in one hundred ligh ter than water. Some metals and sulphur also expand when crystallizing, while other bodies contract. Salt water docs not freeze till four degrees lower. Combustible bodies will not burn if dipped in a solution of potash, or phosphate of lime, or muriate, sulphate, and phosphate of ammonia, with borax. The alkaline substances arrest the hydrogen, or prevent its combination with uxy gen. A Warning for the Parkman Case. —Some months past, a gentleman named Giles, a native of VV'ales, and once a wealthy merchant of Bris tol, England, who boarded at a respectable house in Chamber street, Now York, disappeared. At the time, every inquiry was made to ascertain his whereabouts. A body answering tho do scriptinn stated was discovered in the North River, and his friends recognized tho remains of the missing man. A day or two past the miss ing gentleman turned up at Ward’s Island. Ho became ill, where Jic remained ever since his seclusion. Headley’s Miscellanies. —Mr. Headley has published a card, disclaiming all responsibility fur the two volumes of miscellanies, made up of fugitive pieces which he has written, at vari ous times, for tho magazines and newspapers. The book is übnut to be published by JohnS. Taylor. Mr Headley furthor says that ho in tends to publish such of hi* fugitive pieces as may seem to him of sufficient value and interest for such preservation, in a form at once authen tic, and more acceptable to the public than the work issuedby Mr. Taylor. In the Wrong Box. —A verdant juror at the Philadelphia Criminal Court, lately, went into court and took bis scat in the prisoner’s dork. After a little while ho discovered ho was in the wrong box sontehow, and was leaving bis scat, when he was collared by an officious officer and brought back. With some difficulty he defined his position, and amidst much merriment was transferred to the other box. The Largest Yet.— The sales of Cotton in our market Monday, says the last New Orleans Weekly Crescent, were fifteen thousand bales, the largest business of any one day since the season commenced. Prices have not only .re covered the decline which ensued after the un favorable news by the last Liverpool steamer, hut are an eighth to a quarter of a cent higher than immediately before its receipt.
