The Paris correspondent of the Cincinnati
Gazette writessvhat indeed was foreseen as
the inevitable result of his negotiations that
Mr Soulehas no longer any hopes of an amica
ble settlement of the Cuban question. The
correspondent says he derives his facts and
conclusions from Mr Soule himself, and that
they are, therefore, worthy of entire confidence.
These facts and conclusions are to the following
effect, viz : that the responses and general cou
duct of the Spanish Cabinet have been so uni
formjoiu ,tbc day on which his fi ne tlcmand was
made, that he has become convinced that their
minds were made up in advance as to what line
of conduct they intended to pursue.
"No turn which he could give to the negotia
tions has succeeded in changing the uniformity
of their replies, or the obstinacy with which they
seem determined to cling to a settled line of policy
This couduct on their part is based on two
hypotheses which possess their entire confidence;
one of which is, that England and France will
lend her their assistance iu cases of emergency,
while tiie otheir is, that the demands of the
government of the United States are mere de
magogical threats, made to subserve political
ends, and not based on the true sentiment of the
United States. No treaty has been concluded
between France, England and Spain on the
subject; but conferences have been held, from
which Spaiu has gathered suflicient assurances
to give her confidence in their ultimate support
in case of actual war. The only question which
Spain believes divides the parties is the question
of slavery in Cuba, and upon this question,
when it comes to the poiut, she will give in to
her allies, so as to secure their support."
Sunday in Pari-.
Air James Brooks of the New York Express,
gives the following sketch of Sunday in Ban's:
Strange I'arisI It is Sabbath, and the
workmen on a new building just opposite my
hotel on the Boulevards are at work as hard as
ever! They waked me up at C A. M., counting
brick, "uu," "deux," "trois," etc. and they
kept on counting and brick-laying all the day.
The Sabbath of Paris differs as vet only from a
week day, in the more brilliant exhibition of
equipages, and the greater devotion to pleasure.
I reasoned a little on this subject with a French
lady, who defended the custom with &o much
volubility, that her French, if not her logic, con
fouuded me. She defended it all, however,
with the greatest zeal and .energy. Some of
the newspapers in Paris, just now, are urging,
purely as a question of political economy, that
men cannot work as well seven days in the
weiik as iu-sav tb..t tW burn -f uuturc rt'qtMro
the Sabbath for rest and relaxation, anil taut,
therefore, Sabbath work, Sabbath shop-keeping, j the West?
Opium Latins: on the lleal:h.
The effect of habitual opium taking on health
and longevity, has been a subject of legal con
sideration. A remarkable trial took place in
relation to some assurances effected by the late
Earl of Mar, iu the Edinburg Life Assurance
Company. The Company discovered, on the
death of the Earl that he had been iu the habit
of taking opinio to a large amount and on that
ground, refused to pay the insurance. The
case was decided against the Company on the
prcsumptiou that they had not been sufficiently
careful in their preliminary inquiries as to his
habits. Dr. Christison, who was concerned us a
medical witness in this case, was led, in the
course of his investigation to some interesting
data, both in respect to the freqtiencyof this
habit, and its effect on the duration of life.
It must be confessed that, from these in
quiries, opium does not seem so destructive as
might be supposed; but there is no revelation
made as to the misery in which life was passed;
and, in all probability, a vast number of fatal
cases have been in more than one sense buried
in oblivion. However, Dr. Christison's cases
are replete with interest, and will be read by
those who are concerned innuiilar inquiries with
the greatest advantage. He gives a .short state
ment of the ages of the opium xaters and the
quantity taken. It would appear that many
reached advanced periods of life, such as fifty
or sixty, after fifteen, twenty, or thirty years of
this lamentable practice. One old woman, who
died at Leith, at the age of SO, had taken half
an ounce of laudanum daily for nearly forty
years, and enjoyed tolerably good health all
Another, who died at seventy-six, had taken
about the same quantity, and for the same time.
Very many such statements arc made, but I
conceive they arc exceptions from a general
rule, and that the health was by no means so
good as represented, for iu some instances these
persons are stated to have given tip the opium
for intervals, which thev would scarcely have
done if it had contributed to pleasure without
impairing the health. Dr. Christison must be
himself aware that a long list of drunkards might
be uiade who hud escaped tin; evils consequent
on their habits, and who died at an advanced
age. Such statements, however, are interesting
chiefly as matters of curiosity; and the exam
ple, as the poet says, "more honored iu the
breach than the observance."
An Englishman who was travelling on the
Mississippi Biver, told some rather tough stories
about London thieves. A Cincinnati chap,
named Case, heard these narratives, with silent
but expressive humphsl and then remarked
that he thought the" Western thieves beat the
London operators' all hollow.
A burl In lite U'vcr.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati Time,:,
writing from Helena, Arkansas, describes
quarrel which arose there, and the manner of
its settlement, lo wit:
One of the coldest nights last w inter, tu
prominent citizen's of this plat e, who for v ar '
had been intimate friend, met at the bar-toot. t
of one of the taverns, and soon became merrv
over a little of the sparkling juice. From
humor they got into argument, from apMiim-nt
they got into hard word, and fiom ban! word,
to abusive language. Indeed, it mhmi br m m :i
evident that, under the code of Southern chiv
alry, a "meeting" between the two was cut v it
able, to sati-fy the honor of euo or both. In
tho midt of tlie cA'ciffiu.rif, however, out , a-..

etc., ought not be. Tlie Government, I think, is
favoring this reformation, and so are the clergy,
who are publicly urging a better observance 'of
the Sabbath. The appeals have closed some
few shops on the Sabbath, and the number is
said to be increasing. Indeed, the shop-keepers
themselves, in order to have the Sabbath as a
holiday, are combining, and one is agreeing to
shut up if another will. If, however, the com
bination succeeds, the ouly result for the nouee I
will be a greater thronging iu the Hois of
IJoulogue, the Elysian Fields, the theatres, the
cafes, and such like places. Versailles, now, is
thronged on Sundays. Indeed, that is the only
day when its galleries and little palaces are all
open. And so is the Park of St. Cloud. The
magnificent jets d'eaux were this afternoon in
full display, and thousands upon thousand were
witnesses of the spectacle. The Versailles
water-works play on some Sundays, and the St.
Cloud waters upon others. This water-works'
play seems to me to be peculiarly

Medical Testimony c-astiiot be Coutroverted
One of the most startling cases is narrated of Pr.
Mc Lane's Vermifuge by Dr. John Uutler, of Lowell,
Trumbull Co. Ohio. The case was that of a young
lady who had been very sick for eight years, and had
consulted a number of physicians, who had treated it
as one of Prolapsus Uteri. Dr. Butler was then called
iu. and for a time believed with his predecessors that
it wa? a ease of Prolapsus. He, w ag. however, eotm
forced to the conclusion that his patient was sufteriug
from worms, uud after much persuasion, prevailed upon
her to take two doesof Dr. Mc'Lanes Vermifuge. Th!
medicine had the effect of removing from her a count
less uuinbcr of the largest size. After she passed them,
her health immediately returned. She is since married,
and continues toenjov excellent health.

Celebrated Vermifuge, aud take none else.

"Arkansas Girls. The Memphis Express
tells the following story of a friend of the edi

attend a "break-down," that is, a dance.

were dressed in homespun clothes, und none but

'Lumbering had a savv-m',11.'
'And they stole his lumber';'
'Yes, and his saw-logs too.'
'Yes. Whole dozens of fine black walnut
logs were carried off in a single night. True,
upon my honor, sir. He tried every way to
hired men to watch his logs; but
it was all no use. lliey l wnip 'tin away as
if there had been no one there. They'd steal
'cm out of the river, out of the cove, and even
. out of the mill-ways.'
'Just to give you an idea how they can steal
out there,' continued Case, sending a. sly wink
to the listening company, 'just to give you an
idea did you ever work in a saw-mill?'
'Well, my brother, one dav, bought an all-
tug the evening, sweet potatoes of an enormous j tired fine black walnut log four feet three at
size, roasted in the ashes, were handed round j the butt, and not a knot in it. He was deter-
to the company, together with a handful of salt
for each guest. A beautiful young iau soon
became smitten with ourfrieud, (perhaps with
his magnificent moustaches,) and rcso'ved to
dance with him. She thereupon turned Jo a
friend, and addressed her iu these words
"Sal, hold my tater while I trot round with
that nice boss what's, got on store clothes."
Our friend was clinched accordingly ; he could
net extricate himself from the grip of the rustic
beauty, and was obliged to "trot round' alter
her for one long mortal hour before he could
obtain a respite from his labors. He made his
escape the first opportunity, resolving that he
would never again go to an Arkansas break

understandable illustration of the heat on a

kecrds, just to keep awake, you see. 'Twas a
monstrous big log bark two inches thick.
Well, as 1 was saying, they played keerds and
drank whiskey all night and as it began to
grow light they went to sleep a-straddle the
log. About a minute afterdaylight my brother
went over to the mill to see how they rot on,
and the log was gone!'
'And they sitting on it?'
'Sitting on the bark. The thieve had drove
an iron wedge into the butt end which poiutetl

pulled it right out, leaving the shell and Scotch

The Englishman here rose, dropped his cigar

The inhabit tints, instead of following agriculture,
