Bennett made his escape into Arkansas, where he remained two years. His whereabouts was dis- C'vered he was arrested, brought back, indicted, tried, convicted of murder, and executed. Bond, who was then Goven-or of Illinois, was incessantly besieged by the friends of Bennett and the advocates of the “ gentleman's code,*’ who prayed for his pardon. But the Gov-cnor turned a deaf ear to all their clam-orings, and the majesty of the offended law u-as vindicated Bennett was probably hung, and duelling in Illinois was crushed out. This may account for Senator Douglas’ reluctance to be shot Drowvkd Himsklf.—T he cobred waiter who was guilty of the mean and despicable act, of stdling life-pn-servers to passengers on the New World when she was sunk was transfercd to the Hendrick Hudson, < >n Saturday night during the down trip of the vessel, and when a short distance below Hudson, some persons were tantalizing the fellow for his meanness,vvhen he suddenly gnashed his teeth, hurriedly left them, ran to the guards, and jumped overboard. He was not seen to rise, and it is stipposed was struck by the wheel, stunned, and drowned. The suicide belonged in this citv. and his baggage was sent up to his family yesterday. The body has not been recovered. [Troy Times. Th<-! W in d a M u s ic ia n . The wind is a musician at birth.— We extend a silken thread iu the crevice of a window, and the wind finds it and sings over it. and goes up and down the scale upon it, and poor Paganini mtist go somewhere else for honor, tor, Jo! the wind is preforming upon a sing le string! It tries almost everything upon earth to see if there is music in it; it persuades a tone out of the great bell in the tower, when tlie sexton is at home and asleep: it makes a mournful harp of the giant pines, and it does not disdain to try what sort ot a whistle can be made of the humblest chimney in the world.- How it can play upon a great tree, till every leaf thrills with the note in it, and wind up the river that runs at its base, for a sort of murmuring accompaniment. And what a melody it sings when it gives a concert with a full choir of the waves of the sea, and forms an anthem between the two worlds, that goes up. perhaps, to the stars that love music the most and sang it firs^. Then how fondly it hatmts <>ld houses; moaning under the eavi*s. singing in the halls opening old doors without fingers and singing a measure of some sad old song around the fireless and deserted hearth. In the goo I old days when Gen. -Tack-son was President, he was making a tour to visit the northern portion of his dominion, and was received at ever}' city and every village by a ceremonious welcome Committees were appointed and every man had a little speech of his own to make. • It happened that in the city of New Vork. the arrangement was to have the committee of the city gov erment go to Amboy, and meet the gen- ■ ral on board the steamboat, and escorf him to the city. The chairman of the committee was an alderman distinguished for more soundness in the Democratic faith than for shining talents as industriously engaged, when the weather would permit, in digging over a small plot of ground near his dwelling,and carrying dirt and stones to a pile. He has thus labored, taking 'one stone or a little dirt at a time, until the mound has reached a height of thirty or forty feet, and is much larger than his house. He gives as a reason for his labors, that he is searching for a sixpence he once lost iu the garden. A Ri<^h 'Vdvertisement. An Irish advertisemeut says: “ A reward of $5 is offered for the apprehension of Patrick 0 Flaherty, who last week stole a jackass which same had on a pair of corduroy breeches with blue eyes, and smokes a short pipe; much given to squinting aud likewise his shoes let down at the heel. The Rights of Soil ddI Teiohers. In the case of Henry C. Bailey vs. Alonzo A. Palmer, tried before the Superior Court, in Norwich, last week, certain questions with regard to the rights of teachers in establishing school dicipline were iil-olved, and Judge Sanford, in his ciiarge to the jury, gave the constructions of the law upon these points. 1. That the teacher of a public school has the right to e<tablish rules and regulations for the government of his school provided that the same are reasonable, and necessary for the maint-nance of discipline, the preservation of order, and the enforcement of proper subordination in his school. 2. That he is clothed with povver to usi- all means that are reasonable to enforce thoso rules and regulations that are proper and neccssary for the good government and well being of his school. 3. That in ca.se of open insubordination, and refusal to obey hi.s lawful commands he may exercise all reasonable force that is necessary to suppress such lawful commands. 4. That whether the rules of the school were reasonable, and necesary f'>r its proper government; whether the plaintiff violated those rules: and whether the means resorted toby the teacher to subject the pupil were improper, and the force he used unreasonable ai d greater than the exigencies of the case demanded were questions offered for the jury, who after a brief deliberation, rendered a ver diet for the defendant. T o h a c co The price of Connecticut seed leaf has ranged from 14 to 25 cents. There may have been a small business done in very select qualities at 30. Fillers have been quiet at 5 and 6 and the sales have been small. Ohio, New York aud Pennsylvania, have been very low, as have been all inferior grades. There is a very large stock of Conn. seed leaf and sales and prices must be moderate, except for the very finest qua'ities The Northampton Gazette says that farmers in that region expect to get not more than 14c. for average wrappers. A C a t 's r r tinning. The family of Capt. W.— of Salem had a cat that was a great favorite, and was much potted by them. Puss was allowed to spend much of her time in the parlor, and was always uneasy when shut out. One day ihe parlor door opened and the servant entered and enquired if anything was wanted, as the bell was rung; the mistress replied that she had not rung the bell. Not many days after this was repeated to the no small sur prise and bewilderment of all concerned The bell would ring, the servants would enter the parlor, but no oni> there would know anything of the matter. Here was a mystery which no one could solve Was the house haunted? Was the witch time coming again? At L ngth the lady of the house resolved on discovering the bell-ringer; and a fortunate observation finaly led to the detection of the rogue. The lady had remarke I that on more than one occasion Pws.s' had come into the room with the servant who was so mysteriously called; and she began to suspect that her pet had some connection with the unaccountable bell-ringing. She therefore directed the servant to put the cat out of the room and to wat h her move- Old J o h n B r o w n ’s E x e c u t io n . Gooa fo r a D a r k e y . Of this personage the N. Y.

Pete replied that he would like to assistants, and Avia, the jailor with a military escort. There were no religious ceremonies, either in the jail or on the scaffold, the prisoner having declined such consolations. Brown maintained his composure to the last. Mounting the scaffold with a firm step, he quietly j surveyed the multitude a moment.— j ^^ave him do a little busine.ss^ for him. Then, after a brief silence, be spoke a and that was to sell a four shilling ac* few words of farewell to Capt.

Although death was almost immedi itely, the body was allowed to hang a little over half an hour. Mrs. Brown, who had be»^n awaiting the event at Harper’s Ferry, was received early in the morning at Charlestown, by thi- entire military force with full honors, and “ after remaining four hours with her husband” was escorted back to the Ferry, whi.re his remains reached her at dusk. Throughout the Northern States there were manifold expressions of sympathy during the day. Beside the ample accounts furnished by our reporters "f religious observances of the event in the City churchcs, we have intelligence of kindred demonstrations elsewhere. A large meeting was held iu Philadelphia at which the last letters of Brown to his wife were read, and speeches delivered by Rev Dr. Furness, Mr. Theodore Tilton, of the Indrpendevt, Lucretia IMott and others. Great disorder attended these proceedings. In Boston there was a <-olored council of condolence, outward tokens of grief were displayed in the streets, in both branches of the Massachusetts Legislature adjournment for the day was proposftd^ and in the g e n ing there was a grand Abolition rally, at which ]\Iessrs W. L. Garrison and S L Se«-all were the chief orators. At Manchester, N. H., great excitement for a time prevailed by reason of an in-terferance of the Mayor with the tolling of the State House bell. There was a dense assemblage of people in the City Hall, Syracuse, to hear speeches, put forth resolutions, and take moneys fbr the relief of Brown's family. The City Hall bell was tolled sixty-three times, in correspondence with the years of Brown’s life. The remains of John Brown arr.S'ed at Philadelphia at noon on >^aturday, in custody of Mrs Brown and Messrs. Tindall and McKinn, of Philadelphia, and a reception Committee, at the head of which was Rev. Dr. Furniss, was in waiting at the depot A large police f -rce was detailed to preserve order A considerable crowd, chiefly composed of color d persons, had assembled to witness the arrival of the train. The depot having been cleared of all e-xcept the policemen and reporters, th'* body was removed at 2 o'clock to the Walnut street wharf, to await shipment to New York A large crowd followed the wagon in which the corpse was conveyed from the depot to the wharf. The evening line for this City brought the remains hither, where they were only detained until morning, and a departing train carrie I them forward to Boston. Mrs. Brown came on from Philadelphia by the New-Jersey Railroad ^he remained over night with friends and proceeded to Boston with her husband’s relics The demonstrations of sympathy with the aims and the end of Brown continue to be reported from all parts of the North, and from Canada Meetings have bei-n held at Cleveland and Rochester, formidable in numbers, and unmitigated in tone; while through New England hardly a town of note has failed to have its utterance To correct the impression these Abolition manifestations will naturally make upon the South, a movement is on foot in this City to hold a meeting expressive of Northern sympathy with the holders of slaves The call, it is presumed, will find numerous signatures. Rev. Antoinette Brown Blackwell preached last evening, with “Old John Brown” as a subject, She considered Brown and his followers as heroes and martyrs in the cause of freedom, but advocated moral suasion as necessary to the work of Auti-Sla>ery. Discourses were also delivered Sunday by Rev. Dr Chapin and Rev. Dr. Cheever, both touching upon the fate of Brown—the former expressing conservative and the latter, as usual, radical views The audience were in a roar of laughter, and Pete having made fun enough, drew his bunch of wool into the crowd* as a turtle would draw his black hedd into his shell, and the auctioii sale was resumed. D:^ Billy P., was making a journey in a stage coach over the hilly roads ia the VVestern part of Massachusetts, and amused himself on the road by freqttent resorts to the comforts of a mysterious black bottle which he had with him.— Suddenly the coach came in contact with a large stone which, without doing him any other damage, deprived Billy of his equilibrium, and down he rolled on the ground. ‘ Wot’n thunder are yer doiu’?’ said Billy; ‘how came you to tip the stage over?’ The driver informed him that the s‘age had not been overturned at all, and the passengers assured Billy that Jehu was right. Billy approached the vehicle again, and remounted slowly to his former seat outside. ‘ Did not upset, d'ye say ?’ ‘ Not at all,’ replied the driver. ‘ Well if I ’d a known that,’ said Billy, ‘I would’nt have got off.’ <^hief Justice Taney, of th(*?u-preme Court of the United States, is in the 83rd year of his age, and all his eight associate Justices, except one, are over seventy ycars» Or ig in o f t h e T e rm ‘‘Old d o m i n io n .” Few things are so well calculated to awaken.in the mind of the proud Virgin* ian, when wandering in foreign lands, touching reminiscences ofhome and kindred. as the simple mention of the ‘ Old Dominion” And yet there are comparatively few who are aware of the origin of the term which has so long and generally been applied to Virginia. I t or iginated thus: During the Protectorate of Cromwell, the colony of Virginia refused to acknowledge his authority, and declared itself independent. Shortly after, when Cromwell threatened to send a fleet and army to reduce Virsinia to subjection, the alarmed Virginians sent a messenger to Charles I I . who was then an exile in Flanders, inviting him to return in the ship with the messenger, and be King of Virginia. <. harles accepted the invitation, and waso : the eve of embarkation, when he was called to the throne of England. As soon as he was fairly seated on his throne, in gratitude for the loyalty of Virginia, he caused her coat of arms to be quartered with those of England, Ireland and Scotland, as an in* dependent member of the empire, a distinct portion of the ‘ Old Dominion.”— Hence amse the origin of the term. Copper coins of Virginia were iisued as lats as the reign of George III., which bore on one side the coat of arms of England, Ireland, Scotland and Virginia. T h e P a o ’fic M a l l l*lne. It is stated that Commodore Vander* bilt has bought out the Pacific mail -steamship company, paying $2,000,000 therefor, and will hereafter control the California passenger traffic. The sale was concluded on Saturday. The Com* modore will now, probably, with his largely augmented force of vessels, mak* the service a weekly one. deriving nee-esarily an immense profit from the moa-oply. Grumhlera. If you find a man disposed to complain of the coldness of the world be sure ^ou will find that he has never brought anything into the world to warm it. but is a personal lump of ice set in the midst of it. If you find a man who complains • hat the world is all base and hollow tap him and he will probably sound base hollow. And so. in the other way, a kind man will pmbably find kindneM all about him The mefcimi min.'a^ a general thing, will obtain mercy, lie who. has always hacl a kind excuse for others, who has looked at the brightest side of the case ; he who has pardoiied his help whenever he co-ild has never brought his fellow-man into any strait by reason of not helping him, will find that the mercy which he has bestowed, flows back upon him in full and sponta* neous spring. He will make a merciful world b r the mercy he himself •bovrs.

I ’ve seen your (}as Bag, Mist r Lowe,
And pi»id a quarter for the show.

Sence Blondm come bis circus-feat.
Inside th"t fence you’ve got a thing
That’s made the ’varscl country ring!
Silk b’iled in oil, they say ; all new ;
And cost a thousand dollars, tew!
Y o u ’ve b’en some years a-buildin’ it :
How did you make the pi*-ce.s fit 7
Who cut ’em out? who scwef’ ’em in?

Onc**-t fairly up, prepared lo go it.
You’ll snub vhe moon before you know i t !

Why hang around the solar system ?

Are waiting for your flying visi^ .•

Perhaps yon dread y >ur trip romantic,
