From the fair hands ol these he (Strong Wind) received, unobserved, many pre- cions and sly gifts, nnd amongst them several little billets of tho most sentimental nature, con- taining enclosures of beautiful liiilo stanzas, and cords of address, this group of inveterate gazers was always, though most coy nnd least inoticed, the sweet Itttlo block-eyed maiden, who kissed her hand and throw boquets of flowers to tho Sfrory Wind, from the back window of her fa- Iher's house on Georgo st. The whole soul of Ihe Strong Wind, which, unli! now, had been unchained and free as Ihe mountain breeze, was cotnplclely enveloped in the soft and tilketi web which the languishing black eyes, the cherry and palpy lips and rosy cheoks of this devouring little maid had spun and entwined about He trembled when he straightened his tall and el- egant figure above the platform, not that he was before the gazing world, but because her soil black eyes were upon him, A marriage was accordingly brought about, and il had been carefully rumored that the wed- ding was to take place at St. Martin's being the mosrcenterly situated al Charing cross, where the cavalcade would attract the greatest atlenlion from the passengers in the crowded thoroughfare, and witness the "novel spectacle of a beautiful London girl married to an Indian from tho wilds of America." To create o great excitement on tho occasion, several coaches nnd ornnibusscs were engaged, lhat containing tha Indian Cadotle, or as he had been tanned, "Strong wilh hia bride, was drawn by four horses all decorated with garlands, ribands, accompanied by the oth- er with colon flying, music playing, through tho moat crowded sinwta of London, lo tho church, whcro 1110 ceremony wna to bo performed. Here was the key to this most disgusting get up an exciloment, that the greater number of shillings might fall into the pocket of iho manager, for it was immediately announced in nil the London journals, after the marriago was solemnised, that "hereafter the beautiful and interesting bride of Strong Wind will make her appearance on the plat- form u-ith tho Indians, nnd preside ot the pia- no." Tho London public saw through this transac- tion and rolused to countenance tlie Indian ex- hibition, while tho whole press denounced it as a shameful affair, and tho speculation was n loos- ing one lo ihe projector. The sequel is known. Tho "prelty and interesting girl" followed her husband to his parent too tale! pined day by day in tho rude lodge ol her Indian lord, far away from her own happy isle, until death divorced her from her unhnppr bonds, Y.

A fatal storm had wrecked Ihe vessel in which he had embarked, and even- soul on board it was supposed had perished.-- The young widow, though surrounded by ad- mirers, observed very scrupulously tho rules of decorum; at length, however, the persua- sions of her friends had effect, and she once more threw open her doors to receive compa- ny. Madame St. A mere hud one foible, she loved play to this foible alone threatened to involve her in much trouble. On the evening of her first fete, a tall, graceful figure masked, followed her, paying her innumerable silent at- tentions. To rid herself ot his importunities she sat down at the card lable.ind'woa successful or about on hour. The mask who had fixed himself behind her ihair, then aolicited the honor of playing wilh ler, which she granted, and renewed the game .vitli fresh spirits, though not wilh equal good brtnne. Madame was piqued nt the superior skill of tho impertinent mash, and staked to nn immense amount. Still the stranger was tri- umplwnt, and pulling from tiis pocket a large ncn havc been rather ge< purse of gold, tauntingly dared her to risk ihe i and what do y like amount.

For some time ihe game was doubtful; at length tho malignant deity decided against her, and tho rash widow found her fortune destroyed; by ono night's fol- ly. Her anguish could not be concealed, she rose abruptly from the card table, when tho mask man insinuating lone of voice, hinted to her that she need not put herself to any inconvenience to makeup this debt of honor, as ho coulJ wait her leisure, or compromise it, in seme other way, wilh more pleasure lo himself, and less embar- rassment lo her.

With these words, he removed his musk, when madame uttered a shriek ol joyful surprise, anil fainted in his arms. The company crowded round her; they were chielly immediately recognized iho Chevalier St. Amerc.

Sicw Direction ut Trade. It was only a day or two since that wo ventu- red the speculation thnl the British freight anil passenger trade wilh China, would at an early day be directed in part across the Isthmus of Pa- nama. 'JTre. Africa brings intelligence of yet a moro immediate, if not more important movement in this direction. Aastrailiaand London aro tu be connected over the Pnnama Railway. MrCun- ard is about to establish a line of steamers to pinwall, on the AtfarKic side, to run wilh his lonir establisod Englishand New York 1 ine.incontem- plation ol another line of steamships on the Pa- cific side lo Australia. His expectation is to secure Ihe English Mail Servioc to New South Wales and New Zealand, and application will bo made to ihe French Government for a contract to Tahiti. This is a grand scheme, and not the leu ac- cessible to the commercial world because of the announcement lhat "itlwill tend to ihe greater en- couragement of British enterprise and Ihe better Dillahanty of Tennessee: "Secure lo each family whoao labor mny ac- qnirc ft Jittle spot of free earth that it can call.its it will be an asylum in times of ad-: versily, from which the mother and children, old ago and infancy, can still draw sustenance and cl.iim protection, though misfortune may rob them ol all else ond then feel that ihoy Dje still free still entitled to walk on the greon earth, and breathe the free air of Heaven, in defiance of tho power and potency of accumulated wealth and tlio domineering of ihe pretending and ambitious.

Bui the Democratic party did not own him, and he was not bound lo follow its dictates, right or wrong. When, how- ever, he could omploy this agem to promote the great ends of humanity and justice, then and then only would he act with it. Tho Democratic Convention of Baltimore, composed of chosen delegates from the whole country, was doubtless only authorized to select men lo be their stand- ard-bearers in the approaching contest. It w'ag also authorized to proclaim to iho world lha sen- timents of the Democratic party.

AA E.NCOUSTCK WITH A Mason, in his recently published svork, 'Pictures in Mex- relates the following circumstance which occurred wilh him while loitering nlong a shady path in the stepped aside for a mo- ment lo admire n rice lufl of purple flowers, my mule having plodded along about eight or ten yards ahead, when, as I turned from the flowers lownnfs tho path, a hensalion ns of a flash of lightning struck my sight and I saw a brilliant and powerful snaka winding its coils round the head nnd body of the poor mule. U was a large and magnificent boa, of a black and yellow col- or, nnd it hail entwined the poor beast so firmly in its folds that ere he had time to utter more than ono feeble cry he was crushed and Tho perspintion broke out on my forehead as I thought of my narrow escape; and only re- maining a mo'mcnl to view the movemenls of ihe monster as he began to uncoil himself, I rushed through ihe nnd o'id not con- sider myself f a.'e until I entuely Iree ol the Free Democracy lo disband and unite wilh Iho old parties, at this lime, would bo as unwise and wicked, as it would have been for iho American army lo have surrendered to their enemies, before the battle of Vorklown.

A GAMBLER'S DRVICE. An ingenious inven- tion, ono of the latest improvements in the gam- bling profession, has been seized by one of tho police of New York, showing how easily the poor victim of the passion for making money by chance, instead of by induslry, is duped and rob- bsd. The invention is a teo-io-lum. It is made of ivory, has eight sides, a shaft of tho same ma- terial running through and projecting at each end, Ihe shorter or lower projection forming a pin like that of a boys top, and ihe upper or long- er a handle by which it is set in motion. Each side is marked with different numbers of spots, like dice. At first, of course, the dupe wins, but when the bets beermcs largo enough lo be interesting, the shaft of the tee-lo-tum, which movable to the initiated, is shifted so that the rel- ative position of ihe ends of the toy are reversed, and that which was the top thus becomes the bottom, and vice versa. The lee-to-tum being hollow, and tho shaft loaded, the change of its set of per- position brings up in every instance a s numbers different from ihose on which the son has won. If the latter changes his "lucky number, "his entertainer readily and without pos- sibiliiy of detection, charges his ley and thus never fails to skin hia victim. Colemnn of the A-slor House, once told a vo- racious boarder that ne was going to raise the price of board to three dollars per day. said ihe fellow, "don't do it. I shall die if you do it. Ii nearly kills ma now to eat worth, raisa the price to three dollars, I and if yo shall die m Uro days. Do net do il if you tended to humbug those who chose to bo hum- bugged by it.

IMPERIAL TRAVELLING is Km- peror and Empress of Russia arrived at War- saw on Ihe 2d day of the month of Mny. Extraordinary preparations were made on the road from St. Petersburgh lo fnr ihe journey lo the Empress and her numerous suiie. When the Emperor travels alone he generally does so in n more simple manner. The road I'or 400 English miles was repaired and swept by hand, every alone being removed, and at eve- ry post awtion 175 horses were kept ready harnessed. The arrival of the Emporor was announced by the increased severity of lha po- lice inspections of travelers, at the railway sta- tions. are informed by a gentleman acquainted with the tacts, lhatrj boy residing al Altaian, named Nelson Hawks, after some al- tercation, slabbed a German boy in tho left side with a knife. It penetrated to the region of the heart, and ut the time of the occurrence it was thought it would prove faint. The act was corn- milled on the 12lh. The boy, Hawks, was ar- rested on the 14th, and examined. The magis- trate found the evidence sufficient lo commit him to jail. The recovery of the boy stabbed is con- sidered doubtful.
