"Well, Pll teli you what it is. They snv you are Col. ————, but ! toll them it's no such thing.  Do you think I'd have Col.--in my house?  —No, that's »hatI would'nt. IM turn him out of doorn quicker than you could snap your finger." Here the old lady gave her tìnger a very signifìcunt snap, intimating thereby, (hat she would put her threat into execution, were it necfcssury. The'Col cnrelcssly remarked, that he did not think he bore any great resemblance to the noted character^^en-tione«!. "Thttt'd what I think too, and .so I fold the folks; "for," says I, "do you think a iimn that would risk himself in a burning house, to save a!poor dear child that vvnrnt his own, would lie guilty of so mean  a trick, as killing Gen.--? No; thc> need-  'nt tell iiie any of their stories; for I know Ijetter.'" Tlio Col. turned upon his licei, smiling at ,tlic;' sim |>licity of his hosteM; and in less thnn uii hour, he left tlio place. For many yenrs, dilif;ent inouiiy wns made, for the name of the indiv idual who' had performed the noble act we have recorded, but without success. The character of Col.--, ha ;  appeared liefore the public, in no very enviahh form, "and none therewtt.s, so mean as to do hm rovcrence." The idea, if it ever existed had lon^ since vanished, that this singular individual, wii-the personage who snatched the cliild from the tlarncs.  In 1827, Lt. Hunter, a distinguiscd r.iTiccr of iIk iiavY, and one who shared the laurels with. Pcn v ihat were won on Lake Erie,introduced his sisicr. in New York (then a beautiTil young lady) to Col liurr. The Col. inquired if she was not once rescued, when an infant, from a fire in Newport by strunger. She replied in the affirmuiive, and the idea immediately flashed across her mind, that Col Burr was her deliverer—having heaid his name iiienlioned, in connexion with the tiaiisaclion. It i--needless to remark, that such was tliti fact, and ihat he over after found at least one friend, in this ac-eoiiiplished lady, who con"idei cd this noble and dis-inlciestod act a counterballance against the thousand vices his enemies have uiuibu fd lo him.  ties ni'Mia: M'iiii;i;hMi." üm )iu-e to pi. 11 ; M'T.a, k iMr I -■II-: I ;i:-;e at'  a !l:c II  (ilM-l 11,  ;uice nil I'll!.';:;.

TR.\GEDy IN REAL LIFE.  The following occurrence has recently exeind much interest in Vienna:—A young genileman, M. le Baron de Humboldt,a lieutenant of liussnr», of high family and connexions, hud become ((es|t;,aie-Iv enamoured of Khefftntnr Jc chambre of his mother. She was n yoiing Sieili.Ill, very beaiiiii'ul and well educated. He employ «-d every ni(!nns in his power to induee h(!r lo become his mistress; Inil noi successful in this altempf, Ik; nt lengih oir-it il her his hond and fortune. Mie still remained ine.xn.a ble,and would lisu^n to none of his proposaU. ho-lieving him not to be sincere in his professions ol love. He soloiniily swore that lie would never break his mariisgc' vow, and producing a poigiiaid, ileelarcd that hu would plunge it "nto his bean .mli-1 r tlian Ix.; unfuilhful to her, if she would L-onsent lo lieeoitie his wife. The vehenieneo of his dcclaru-tion touched the Ik nrtof Elii-a, (sneh was her iiaine,) and she conscnted to liecomc his xv ifi?. Their iiiar-I iiige to(.;k place in Febniary, « ¡¡li every jiossible oiitwni'i (icinonstra'.icn of rejnii-i tug; and tho relatives of M. de Huniboldi, although not approving of the man itigc. did every thing lo celehinre ihu e-vcni ecfa/. In ihe l>eginning of May the oflicer followed his regin.eni to Milan.— His wii'e, who 10-nininnd at Vienna, took menus lo have all lii-^, movements walclied, m d she sijon learned that he hud formed u connexion witli a young wid>i\v, the Murquis du Louvain; and I'loiii that iiioment siie ic-solvet) upon a deathly levenge. In the rage of her jealousy she nt first deiermined to go to \lilnn I'ck the pur|)ose. She wns conieniplating this step, when her husband unexpectedly reiurned to Vienna with dispatchcs.—Th« inwtnnt he « niered the house, maddened with rage, and frantic with excited feelings of jealously, she dew at him like a tiger, and plunged the fatal dagger, (ly w hieh be had sworn, into his bo<ly. The husband fell, weltering in bis blood, and was taken tu the hospital, where lie recoveiing. The unhappy wile was given up lo justice, and is at present resigned to her situation, but not regretting her crime.  ihe door, and looking out, said, "It's so daik, ;Ma, I can't see nothing' but lightnen; I sec another cloud just behind."

"Fine weather. Miss Polly." "Oh, no, Mr. Bucket, it's too rainy." "Well,« don't know but the rain does make il worse," says 1, and by this time 1 got my hand on'lier Sshoulder. "One word brings on another," says I. "Siinie-times,'says she. "La, Mr. Bucket, what^an'fugly night for a wedding!" There, thriiight 1, ncw's my time. So says I, "Miss I'olly, Mother say« yoi -'ve got my /»»er." "Oh no, ftfr. nneket, it inny be your heart " This stump'd me,.v^if I eoulUlhave'goi my hai, I believe I would have left ofl'1 hen, but I kept alkiiig on, full of life, hut 1 could'iil l'org«!t the liver —so I told her I would come agin beforOj long,jni!i! -he said shedid'nt care if I did; so I got my hat at.d s ailed home, after the usuni good night, and all the way home kept thinkin about, the liver,f,but I thought nobody would know it, and it would lub off. Hut Polly told I'll the gals of it, till mother^got hold i:i'l,and I guess as how I got a genteel scoldin— 'lUt the people all luffed at 1110 so much aliout it, that 1 got right mad with Polly, and han'i|spokcu lo her since; und every time I see a young feller without jxperience after the galls, I think of the fine weather arid the liver.  AN IMPORT.iNT DISCOVERY—THE TKETil.  Waldie, of I'hiiaiUdphia, uoiiciis a discovery • of no little iniportanee to such as arc troubled with bad eeth. He says:  "Sometime since, Doctor Calwell, now a practicing dentist at No. C8South Sixth street, had a favorite horse w liieh became incapable of eating his o:its, and on the investigation a curious too'h indicated the difficulty to result probably^from tooih ache. Extraelion was the remedy of course—ihe poor horse was tripped up, by tying his feet togcilier, as  Jiunpe of Gmi. Jt«cksoa, "ilie >oi>ld »ever witnessed baser perfidy and treacltery 4hnn they lot^-have  been^uiliy of towards the banks!  But to the qualification cf thfl Globe.—*^WU1uml anjthandonmenl of any of tk*\f.Tindfle» to wkieh it ■Handt pted^ed.'^'' That is the point—the sub-Treac-ury. Every intelligent man knows, that so Img as that destructive end odious measure of the Executive WKa suspended over thonr, tho banks could not resume, without in tl»e event of its pasting through Congress, being liable to suspcndy|«gain any mo* ment hereafter that it might suit the view$ and feelings of the Government toaingle fhem oat, one after the other, ns its victims for immolation. This is what the sub-Treasury destructives sought for. Not ¿until this iiixiininable scheme had been put down by ihe lepre^ntatives of the people ¡•every shape iti'whic'h it was five limes brought forward, did the banks or cold tfiey have ffsunicd. As soon as thenbar.ks saw that th» goreroment were thus rendered powerless, and without the ability to per-secuie or harm tfiem, they then resumed apecie payments, ,in »pite of the Administration and its ■supporters, and of'lairientationsjiere ur elsewhere.'  'I'he^AdministrationSwere not desirous that the banks should resume, ir the sub-Treasury bill did not pa.ss. I' ihnl was defeated, the Administration hoped the 'banks would not resume—The ¡«site ihey were desirous of nuking before the people, was upon non- resumption of payments by the banks of their obligations in specie.  I'p to nearly the last moment every thing was resorted to thai could bethought of to excite the public mind againsi the banks. Tho'Monster' was singled out, under the belief that ifitcouid be proe-tratcd, tho others would fall an easy prey.  In the Globe of May last, nearly three columns were cxjcupied wiih the stalcment of (he condition of the Bank I'. S., the month previous, and the effort to prove that the bank could not resunte—in other words, ihut it was bankrupt. Following ill these figures at^d facts, the Globe aaid:|'The question of resumpiion depends on immediate meant dc  custom p;0scnl)cs, his gum was lanccd as wo poor fosumpiion depeni  humnn uniti' v liave loo often witnes.scd, and n pair li'abiliiies.

EDWARD Bi;CKEr'S COI K TSHIP.  Old Mr. Posey, the father of Policy Posey, used to live close to our house, and Polley usui to come right often: she was a real puny gal, and I used to have some niighiy queer feelings uhoiit her. At last one day my iiioihei says, "Ned, v^hy don'l you court Polly?" "Oh," said I, "mammy, 1 do want to, but I don'l know what to say to her." "V\ hy, Ne(l,"snys_Khe, just go, and the fir»t good chance you got, ssy fino weather, .Miss Polly,and ilial will bea beginning,and that worif brings on anolher, and if she likes you, you can soon lell it; and when you get in a goinl way of chut,jiisi say. Miss Polly, you've got my heart,.and if »fit likes that pretty well, Ko then i»i|> the question." So one Sunday inuitiing I toUi mother I thought it was a good time to go and'sec Polly—she said so did she. So 1 fixed up, out on n»y best clothes, and combed my hair, and ax d mother if she thoughi I'd do. "Oh vea," says she, "I'll call you ihe dean thinf; now.'' 80 off I starts, and soon found myself at Mr. Poaey's door. "Who\ ihair saya Mis. Poaey. "Edward Bucket," Miys I. "Walk in Mi.

"Oh, Mr. Bucket,"says »he, "nothing, I believe, only I hear you arc about to get nmiried," There, ibouglu I, the subject's l>io«clietl nlieady. t»Uh no," says I, "Mi* Polly only wants to be." About this timo night came on, and it begun to rain dreadfully; in run the 6IJ man. "How aie you Mr. Bucketr—"Well, I ihank you."

MENDACITY OF THE OFFICl.^L ORGAN— RESUMPTION OF SPECIE PAYMENTS— THE BOASTED VICTORY. The oflicirti organ of last Tuesday night said, "Every intelligent man has known from the beitiii-ning of our iulu troubin, rliat tha administration could lend no aid lo ihe banks." "Tho banks have resumed without any oid from the Governineui, as all knew they must if they resumed at all."  rpon these positions of ibe oAicial organ of the (»ov ernmeiii, we now charge the Secretary of the 'Pieusury and the ojficial alao, with having been guilty of dissimulation towauls ihe banks—of deavoring to deceive and cajole iheni. ilcr<j is the proof of the allegation.  On the 9ih day of April la*t the Secretary of ihe Treasury wrote a letter to tho President of ilie Bank of America, and enclo.sed a copy of one he had written to sonre other peracn pievir.usly, da'ed tho 18th March, for the purpose of having it .shov\ n at the convenlion of banks about to assen ble. to consider and discusa the measure of rcsnming s| «■-cie payments.

Now let us show what the ofliciul organ iicrii said.
