Lombardy and Venice, until in 1848, the revolutionary government of France gained again a foothold in Rome, thereby renewing the old quarrel which now threatens the peace of Europe Austria, in anticipation of the present state of things, and to strengthen her hands in Italy against France, the policy of which is the sub version of the temporal power of the Pope, granted a few years ago by a Concordat most extraordinary temporal rights to the latter not alone in her Italian bnt also German domin ions. This was done with a view to concilia ting the Roman Catholic world with the Aus trian rule in Italy, and to engage the Italian clergy and their influence upon its side, it was about the same time that Count favour, probably inspired from the Tulleries, pro posed as the means to save Italy, the separa tion of tho temporal and spiritual power of the l’opc, and that n brochure appeared in Paris from the pen of the Abbe Michon advocating the same cause, and maintaiuing that only party at Rome were interested in the present organization, bnt that there was even there a large number of superior men, who held that the two principles of power are irreconcilable. The learned Abbe boldly proposed the trans- for of the scat of Papal authority to Jerusa lem, the original place of its existence, as the best arrangement possible to meet the compli cations of the times. A conflict between France and Sardinia on the one side, and Austria and Rome ou the other seems inevitable. Even if Austria could be iuduced to yield certain points under the heavy pressure put upon her by France and Sardinia, sustained by Russia, it would only defer the grand catastrophe, which sooner or later must decide the'fate of Italy. The Vienna Cabinet convinced of this, seem unwilling to prolong for an indefinite time an armed peace, which could only reduce their means to meet a way from which they see no escape. 1'lic Hospital System of France. A general description of Hotel Dieu wilt an swer for others of the same character in Paris. It is situated on the island in the Seine, near the Cathedra] of “Notre Dame." AU humanitary and religious institutions are exempt from taxes and duties, and receive annual revenues from the city, whicli arc raised by taxes and special appropriations. AU the theatres and other pub lic places of amusement are obliged to pay one- tenth of their receipts for the support ofpiiblic institutions of a humane character. The re ceipts from this source last year was over *|200, 000. The hospitals own much real estate which has fallen to them by bequest; these they cul tivate or rent; thus realizing regular revenues. Any person of any nation can enter the Paris hospitals, provided they are sufficiently ill to require it if they are residents of Paris, a person is sent to examine if the patient is able to pay; if they are, forty cents a <lay is required. If the per son lives out of Paris, or Ls a foreigner, the word of the patient mast lie taken as to his ability to nay. If the patient is poor, lie is received ami kept until well, unless he desires to leave. I have known many to stay two and three years; but generally these chronic cases are sent to hospitals for incurable diseases, where they re ceive their patients for a life time. Paying ami non-paying patients receive the same attention, unless they |>ay above the regular prices. As a genera) tiling, tho hospital receives all cases of emergency. Rut thcro are hospitals for spe cial diseases? The wards of Hotel Dicu arc like those of all other hospitals. About filly patients arc in each room, tho beds being on cadi side, with a space of about six feet between each. These beds are iron, with high iron frames for the curtains, which arc white linen. Tints, each •aticut can shut himself up from the view of lis neighbor. Many a time have I been pass ing from one ward to another, and hearing groans or suspicious breathing, have looked within the dosed curtains of the bed and seen the poor in valid struggling witli the great enemy, with no hand of his kindred to press, and none of their voices to console him. Hut almost always a faithful “Sister of Charity" was near at hand to occasionlly moisten his lips, and utter a last word of hope and prayer. Hut i am sorry to add that some of these “angelic Sisters” look and act very much like “White Devils,” as I have heard them profanely called. The new ones are generally very kind, but the old and harden ed look blank and heartless. I have seen them look on the dying and the dead with as little care as the old dissector, and they heat and hand the cautery, all glowing at a white heat, to the Doctor, with a sort of fiendish pride that it ia hot enough. The wards of all the hospitals arc well ligh ted and heated, but are very poorly ventila ted- This is not because they cannot be. but because the whole nation is afraid of fresh air. Their public buildings arc not much worse ventilated than too many of ours in America. Rut our private houses arc beyond compari son witli those of the French. The floors of the hospitals arc of oak or tile, which are well waxed and kept perfectly clean. Hotel Dieu has forty Sisters of Charity, mostly Roman Catholic; but there arc Protestant Sisters of Charity, for the attendance of those patients who prefer them. A chapel is attached to each hospital, where priests are iu constant atten dance to visit the sick and the dying. Pro testant ministers can attend those patients who desire them. When a patient dies a short Mass is sung in the chapel. If a patient dies and his body is not claimed by his friends, which they very often fail to do, as thus the heavy expense of burial is avoided, it finds its way to the Schools of Anatomy.

TIIORPK* The time was, when a visit to Washiugt City presented a field of intellectual interest there were men in our National councils alike remarkable for mental power and physical pe culiarity. In the Senate were Clay, Webster and Calhoun; in the House, Randolph, Bur gess, Crockett, and other giants in their way. who, once seen, afforded life long reminiscen ces. At present our Congressmen have, with very few exceptions, become cotnonplace, and in no way distinguishable from the vulgar mul titude which throng the drinking saloons mid naked streets of our nation’s capita!. Mr. Stephens, of Georgia, one of the oldest mem hers of the House of Representatives, is the most prominent man, intellectually, and the most remarkable man, physically, of the few remaining celebrities. From bis infancy lie hat been an invalid, and the fearful effect of suffering is shown in his singularly delicate frame, in his pale attenuated face, and in his feeble walk. A first introduction to Mr. Steph ens fairly startles you, and it is utterly impos. sible to realise that there stands before you man deservedly famous for his triumphs, alike at the bar and tho forum ; that one so frail could, by his mental ability, give character to the legislation of a great people; bat a few moments’ conversation, however, are only nc cessary to impress you with the feeling that you are iu the presence of a remarkable man there is the simplicity of a child iu his man ners, yet his rich and varied experience crowds upon you. in anecdote and incident, in the state ment of broad principle, and philosophic re flections, and carries yon away with the gen tlcness and the power of a deep and irresistible stream. His reminiscences of great men are charming beyond expression, and be seems particularly fond of dwelling upon the mental characteristics of such inen as Crawford, Clny, Webster, and their compeers, analysing with singular perception their peculiarities; and by happy flashes of illustration, giving you a key to their characters—crystalising them, indeed, until you could see through and through them and understand them as if you bad a new sense of mental perception. The grandfather of the Hon. Alex. H. Steph ens, of Georgia, and the founder of his family in America, was an Englishman by birth, and a strong Jacobite, and therefore by nature an enemy to George HI.; he came to this conn try witli General Braddock. After that sold ier’s defeat he joined the American army, took an active part in the Revolution, and' at the close of service settled iu Pennsylvania. In the year 1702 he settled in the South, first in L'IKam# f'nimft* flmrt If! Willrno An K’lif tJn Tho averago mortality, in Hotel Dicu, is said to be 1 In 18, but judging from what I have seen, I should say it is greater. The wards arc managed much the same as in A- mcrica. There is a greater nbu ndance of clean linen. The curtains, sheets, pillow cases, ban dages, are all linen, bnt it is coarse and heavy. The Chief of the Pharmacy is obliged to be a graduate of the College of Pharmacy—and this is no farce. They must pass three years itudy, and undergo several examinations in Chemistry, Botany, Natural History and Mineralogy. There arc uinc physicians, three surgeons and a great number of "interns," or resident or "house physicians.” The surgeons and physicians make their morning visit from 7 toll, and give their lectures and operate from H to 10. They often require a candle to see their patients during their examinations or op erations. Their vistta are thus early, so that their private practice shall not be interfered with. It also gives tbo students who attend hospitals, an opporlunity to dissect or hear other lectures during tho day. The doctors arc generally very careful in their examination of patienta.’ They interrogate loud enough for nil the students to hear, and frequently ask the opinions of the latter concerning the case in baud. After the doctor has passed to another patient, one can examine the preced ing patient at leisure, ami thus make up Ins mind ns tothe case, so that when the proles sor lecture* he can compare his views with those given by the lecturer and see wherein lie erred. If the student is attentive, he can learn immensely. The greatest advantage onelias in the French hospital is the tuition ho receives in the dis tinguishing of diseases, or as the doctors say, in Diagnosis. It is really more important to know the cxnet nature of the disease than to know precisely what will cure it. There can be but few specific remedies on account of their be ing but few spedfht diseases. If we know whether the disease is curable or not. we do not torture the patient with uncertain treat ment. If we cannot recognize the disease, we must necessarily give remedies blindly, hoping they may hit the disease; hut it we i til the misapplied remedies and the disease arc both work mg death, or these remedies may increase the disease or put the patient beyond the reach of proper treatment. If American Doctors were good Chemists, Anatomists and Physiologists, they would be the best physicians iu the world; th “ reason that the American mmd works the hart- Elbert County, then in Wilkes, on Kettle Creek, where he remained until 1803, when he removed again into that part of Wilkes which was eventually cut off to form Taliaferro. The father and grandfather of Alexander H Steph ens died upon the place. Here it was that Alexander was born on the 11th of February. 1812; his mother dying when be was an in fant. His father, who was a man of limited means, of great industry, and of unusual probi ty, maintained a high standing in the neigh borhood ; his death occurred when Alexander was fourteen years of age. Left an oipban in bis childhood, his paternal home sold for die tribution, the portion of each child being only four hundred and forty-four dollars, he was dependant almost entirely upon his own cxer tions; tho future gave promise that the sickly emaciated boy would in time make himself heard in the council* of the nation, and by bis wisdom and energy give tone to the affairs of the world. Before hi* father’s death he had been a regular attendant at the “neighborhood" school, and by the kindness of nn uncle he continued his limited studies. Possessed of an ambition to oxcel, he finally conceived the idea of securing a classical education, but was without the pecuniary means to accomplish bis wishes. Fortunately, friends came to the res cue, and furnished the funds, which he would only accept as a loan, and with this encourage ment, he set himself to work, and without the assistance ot a tutor, in nine months’ study, commencing with the rudiments of the plainest English education, he fitted himself for the Freshman Class, and witli considerable eclat entered the Georgia University. After the usual course of study for four years, he gradu ated with the highest honors, the record of which is shown with pride by the present officers of the institution. Inspired with a high degree of personid independence, lie immedi ately offered his services as a teacher, and for fifteen months toiled in that illy-appreciated but honorable occupation, earning money enough in that time to pay the obligations be contracted while pursuing his studies. By this timo bis close application had entirely worn what little vitality one possessed who had been an incalid from his birth, and, utterly prostrat ed, he had to quit all active duties, and seek relief in travel. With some little improve meat of his physical frame be returned to la bor, chose the law as a profession, commenc ing its study in the month of May, 1834. Hi; first fee after he commenced the practice of the law was consumed in the purchase of a pocket book to keep his papers in. On his otfer to purchase the trifle, his ability to do so was cal led in question. He, however, paid the money, got the book, which lie has carried about his person ever since, nn incident which Mr.Steph ens now alludes to with singular pleasure.— Without any legal advice, he shut himself in bis room with no companions but his text books, and in ninety days presented himself for admission. He was examined before the Hon. Win. II. Crawford by the present Chief Justice Lumpkin, and from these learned ju rists received the compliment of sustaining i better examination than they had ever before heard in their long experience as members of the legal profession. YoungStephens’ success at the law was char acteristic of his antecedents, ami as an evi dence how naturally great minds turn small things to a good account, one of his first cs says became celebrated as the “great trunk case.” It seems that “ Alek ” left this useful article, containing a few books and some cloth- in-'. with a rather independent and overbearing piibticno, who allowed it, while in his posses sion, to be stolen. The suit was commenced for a recovery of damages. The landlord, at first, outraged at "the boy’s” impudence, final? h- retained an able lawyer, and to tbe amuse ment of the bar, proceedings were commenced. In the course of the trial. “Alek” displayed so much promptness, pertinacity, and aoility, that wba' was intended as an amusing legal interlude, became a -harp contest of legal acu men Young Stephens’ gained bis case—the landlord, exasperated, appealed, but fared no better in the higher court, the verdict still be ing against him. Within ten days after his admission to prac tice, lie was employed in a case of great re sponsibility. a wealthy man was guurdian of his grandchild, its mother having married to a second husband. In course of time the moth er desired possession of the child, which was resisted hv the grandfather, who claimed it as legal guardian- The step-father, desiriug to please his wife, came to young Stephens and engaged him as counsel to set aside the guard ianship, older lawyers declining on the score of the hopelessness of the case, and perhaps a fear to encounter the learned array of counsel ea- g aged on the opposite side. The trial came off before five judges, no jury being called.—Ow ing to the respectability of the parties, and the novel scene of a sickly boy. without any legal experience, opposed to the most veteran lawyer at the bar. the case attracted unusual atten tion. The result was, that the guardianship was set aside, the child was restored to the pos session of its mother, and young Stephens at once took a prominent place at the bar, from that time being retained on one side or the oth er of every important case that was tridc in the county. The rising genius of young Stephens was cordially acknowledged, aud every possible in ducement was held out in different parts of the State to determine the place where lie would settle. Now it was that he displayed one of the finest traits that can adorn the human heart. Attached to the friends of his youth, and hi- father’s friends, lie rejected all offers, and aus nounced, to their great satisfaction, that he would remain among them, and as soon as lie was able purchase back the old homestead on which be was born, and there live and end his days. In 183(5, against his wishes, he was run by his friends for the legislature. On the Wed nesday before the election he made his first stump speech—this was followed by another at the polls on election day. He was triumph antly returned against a hitter opposition.— He signalised his appearance as a legislator in defence of the bill which proposed “that Geor gia should lauuch out in certain internal im provements,” aud in spite of the formidable opposition, iiis speech probably saved the bill, and thus inaugurated the commencement of the present prosperity of the “ Empire State of the South.” In tbe six years which he re mained in the legislature he took a most prom inent part in ail important matters, particular- Making ii I wouderif any little girl who may read this, ever thought how many people are all the time at work in making the things which she every day uses. T( hat can be more common, and, yoi may think it more simple than a needle ? Yet, if you do not know it, I can tell you that it takes aigreat many persons to make a needle, and a great deal of time, too. Let us take a peep into the needle manufac tory. In going over the premises, we must pass hither and thither, and walk into the next street and back again, and take a drive to a mill, in order to see the whole process. We find one chamber of the shop is lmng around with coils of bright wire of ail thicknesses, from the stout kind used for codfish hoops, to that of the finest cambric needle. In a room below, bits of wire, the length of two needles, are cut by a v ast pair of shears fixed in tlie wall. A bundle lias been cut off; the bits need straightening, for they justcamo off from the coils. The bundle is thrown into a red hot furnace, and then taken out and rolled backward and forward on a table till the wires are straight. This process is called “ rubbing straight."— We go down into the basement and find a needle pointer seated on his bench. He takes up two dozen or so of the wires and rolls them between his thumb and fingers with their ends on a grindstone, first one end and then the other. We have now the wires straight, and pointed at both ends. .XexFis a machine which flattens and gutters the head of ten thousuud needles au hour. Observe the little gutters at the head of your needle. Next comes the punching of the eye, and the boy who docs it punches eight thousand an hour, and lie does it so fast your eyes can hardly keep pace with him. The splitting follows, which is running ly the one which proposed a change iu the Con- a fine wire through a dozen, perhaps, of these stitution.

They islature at iwo consecutive sessions. The dif- are now complete needles, bnt rough and rus- ficulty seemed insurmountable, if opposition ty, and what is worse, they easily bend. A to a change existed in either branch of the leg- poor needle, you will say. But the hardening islature, and the opponents of tlie bill appear- comes next They are heated in a furnace, ed to be impregnable. Stephens took tho | and when red hot are thrown into a pan of ground that when tbe Constitution is silent up on the mode of its amendment, then the legis lature can cay a convention; that when a Con stitution points a particular mode in which it may be amended, without excluding other modes, then the legislature may adopt some other mode than that pointed out; but when a constitution provides a mode for its amendment, and prohibits all other modes, then that mode only can be taken which is provided for. Jen kins, Crawford, Howard, aud others, took the opposite side, opposed the bill, and voted for a convention; the universal opinion was that tbe convention could be called, and the con vention was called with an overwhelming ma jority which passed the proper amendments, but they were never ratified by the people. As a member of tho legislature lie opposed the organization of the Court of Errors, be tiering that the judiciary as established was tbe best in the world, and that tlie change would only multiply difficulties, without gain ing any additional certainty to the administra tion of the law; the bill was. not passed while •Mr. Stephens was in the legislature. In 1842 he went to the State Senate, oppos- sed the Central Back, and took an active part in the questions of internal improvements and districting the State, which then divided par ties. In 1843 he was nominated for Congress, on a general ticket, and commenced the canvas with a majority o£two thousand rotes against him, and came out of the contest with thirty- five hundred majority; and os he discussed on the stump matters entirely relating to local interests, his eloquence and power undoubted ly carried the State. His entry into Congress was signalised by extraordinary circumstan ces ; his right to a seat was denied. Stephens, in the discussion that ensued, made a speech iu favor of tho power of Congress to district the States; though he was elected in defiance of the law on a general ticket, and then left the House to decide upon his claims ; he was permitted to take his seat. Up to this timo Mr. Stephens was a prominent Whig, bavingbeen bred in that school ofStates rights men of the South who sustained Harri son in 1640, but upon the question of annexe-, tion of Texas coming up he favored that bill, and for the first time affiliated with the Democ racy. In the contest between Taylor and Cass, he supported Taylor. On the compro mises of 1850 he was wilting to support any measure that did away with Congressional re striction, leaving the Territories to come into the Union with or without slavery. In the Mexican war he stood beside Mr.- Calhoun, and held that troops should not be advanced; but after tbe war commenced, he sustained it with vigor. The guarantee that four slave States should be carved out of the Teritory of Texas was secured mainly by Mr. Stephens’ untiring labor and foresight. In 1854 he advocated the Kansas bill, which declared null and void the Missouri restriction, for the purpose of carry ing out the principle of 1S5U advanced in the Utah and New Mexican bills. The year 1855 was the most interesting and critical period of bis life, which he spent fighting the Know Nothing organization, in the commencement of which lie found all his early friends and as sociates for the first time opposed to him. In the Month of May of this year he wrote his celebrated letter against the order, addressed to Col. Thomas \Y. Thomas. The effect of it was overwhelming, not only in his own State, but in Yirginia and the adjoiuing States. His positiou wus sustained, and commencing with three thousand majority against him iu his own district, he came out of the contest with near ly three thousand majority. When Mr. Stephens rises to speak, there is sort of electric communication among the au dience, as if something was about to be utter ed that was worth listening to. The loungers take tbeir seats, and the talkers become silent, thus paying an involuntary compliment to Mr. Stephens’ talents and high claims ns a gentle man. At first his voice is scarcely distinguish able, but in a few moments yon arc surprised at its volume, and you are soon convinced that his lungs are in perfect order, and as the ideas flow, you arc not surprised at the wrapt atten tion it commands. His style of speaking is singularly polished, but he conceals his art, and appears, to the supperficial observer, to be eloquent by inspiration. The leading char acteristic of his mind is great practical good sense, for his argument- are always of the most solid and logical kind ; hence his perma nent influence as a statesman, while his bright scintillations of wit, and profuse adornment, securing him constant popularity as an orator. I’osscsseii of a mind too great to be restrained by mere partisan influence, he has therefore the widest possible field of action, at one time heading a forlon hope aud leading it to victory, another giving grace and character to a tri umphant majority. Common as it is to im pugn the motives of many of our public scr- aud charge them directly with corrup tion -Mr. Stephens has escaped without even the taint of suspicion ; an inflexible honesty of purpose on his part, as a governing principle, awarded to linn by his veriest political foe. The report that Mr. .Stephens will retire from Congress at the end of the present session remains uucontradicted, yet we indulge the hope that lie only seeks temporary repose be cold water. Next they must be tempered, and this is done by rolling them backward and forward on a metalic plate. The polishing still remains to be done. On a very coarse cloth, needles are spread to the number of for ty or fifty thousand. Emery dust is strewed over them, oil is sprinkled, aud soft soap is dashed in spoonfuls over the cloth; the cloth is then rolled up with several others of the same kiud, thrown into the wash pot, to roll to aud fro for twelve hours or more. They come out dirty enough, but after a rinsing, in clean hot water, and a tossing in sawdust, they look as bright as can be, and arc ready to be sorted and put up for sale. But the sorting and do ing up in papers is, you can' imagine, quite a work by itself. Discovery of Mysterious Vaults iu OHIO. Jackson, Ohio, Feb. 21, 1659. Our village is full of wonder and excitement. Martin Marker, J. IV. Hughes and Washing ton Long, in digging a grave in the cemetery near this village, about 10 o’clock this morn ing, came to a large flat stone about four feet below the surface, which stopped their further progress until they procured assistance and removed the stone from its resting-place of a ges, when it was found to have closed the en trance to a subterranean vault.

SPARKS sep 7 proved unsuccessful on account of the foul air nSSfSS &T fSSgtStSSS^SSS^ with which it is filled. By means of a rake, human bones of gigantic size have been raised, aud a small chain of silver, with coins attach ed to each cud. The coins, though much de faced by time, have the appearance of those iu use among the Romans in the days of Cicero Africanus, though there were evident traces of hieroglyphic devices that cannot be dcci phered. The men at the cemetery have, by means of burning straw, made light in the vault, and though none have the courage to enter fnrthc than the entrance, it has been discovered that there is immediately to the west of the open ing a chamber of about ten feet square, with steps quite dilapidated down its eastern side. Three other chambers branch out of this—one to the north, one to the west and the other to tbe south. We aro all curious, of course, to know when and by whom these vaults were made and fill ed. The Rev. Mr. Hunter and 3Jr. Armstrong and Dr. Knouff have examined them as well as they could without going down into them also the bones raked out and the chain and coins, aud all give it ns their opinion that these vaults were made by the same people who built tbe mounds in the southern part of the State. These questions present themselves to every one. Who made these vaults and filled them ‘ Was our country once the home of giants ? GEORGE DAVENPORT. P. S. Four aud a half P. M.—W. Long, af ter the straw had burned in the first vault for some time, ventured down to make an cxaml nation, but the atmosphere was so impure that he could remain there but a few minutes though long enough to discover that the walls of the vaults were substantially built of smooth well-shaped stones, and that there were large numbers of bones in them. Persons will nr rive here from Sidney and Greenville to-mor row, and every exertion will be made for a thorough examination of this "house of the dead” as soon as possible. G. D. Lynch Law uinl its lCctribiilion In San Francisco Judge Hoffman has made adccrce of no small importance to the vigilance committees of that and other cities, because it shows how far pecuniary damages may be ob tained from all who have property and engage in such deeds as taking the law into tbeir own bands. It is to be hoped that the example in Maryland of six men now under sentence of death for murders committed in the same spir it, though under more aggravated circum stances, may tend to bring this reign of row dyism to a close and prevent its recurrence. In California the case was this: Martin Gallagher was supposed and pretty well known to be a ballot box stuffier, a shoulder-hitter at elections, and a pretty hard case generally. So the viligance committee, during their "reign of terror,” to evil-doers at least, instead of hanging him, (which it seems might have saved them some lawsuits and actions for damages) put him on beard a ship for Honolulu, and re quested to see his face no more. The captain of tbe vessel, the passage money being paid, regarded him simply as so much live freight, and carried him against his will, it seeins.— He, in return, brings an action against the captain for twenty thousand dollars damages in tbe United States Court, it having jurisdic tion in all cases of otlences on the high seas. The charge of the judge is sirong and clear. He considers it a ease for “ exemplary dam ages." It is of the last importance that masters ami agents of ships should learn that whatever be the power that, in mo ments of popular excitement.
