_igiT Carlyle says nine-tenths of the miseries and vices of manhood proceed from idleness ; with men of quick minds, to whom it is aspecially pernicious, this habit is commonly the fruit of many disappointments and schemes not baffled : and men fail in their schemes not so much from want of strength, as from a_^ ill-direction of it. The weakest living creature, by contracting his powers upon a single object, can accomplish something ; the strongest, by dispersing his over many, may fail to accomplish anythiDg.

Desperate and Fatal Duel : A desperate and fatal duel was fought in St. Landry parish, near Opelousas, La., on' the 6th inst., between Messrs. Alphouse Bienvenue, deputy sheriff, and Girard' Fournet, which ended in the almost immediate death of Mr. Fournet.5 From the Courier of that town we takethe following particulars ; Each of the combatants went upon tbe field armed with two revolvers and. a bowie-knife; they were stationed twenty paces apart, with instructions, at the word, to fire and advance at will—the fi'ght to end with the death of one 0* both the parties. At the second fire, Mr. _Fournet having been struck, staggered and fell, but not without retaining both strength and courage enough to fire twice more upon his adversary, but without effect. They were both brave and true men, and behaved gallantly to tbe last. . .

NEWS IN BRIEF The wife of one of the wealthiest merchant princes of New York wore a dress at the great Academy of Music Ball, the three flounces of which alone cost a thousand dollars each. The lace used upon the dress was only two and fifty dollars a yard. A man named Coville, who recently eloped from Columbus, Ohio, with a young woman of bad reputation, leaving a wife and two children, was sentenced to thirty days' imprisonment in a dungeon, ordered to be fed on bread and water, and mulcted in a fine of one hundred dollars. The Poughkeepsie, New York, Wide-Awakes got into trouble the other night, for parading a banner with a device representing Erastus Brooks smashing Bishop Hughes with an axe. The Catholics gathered in force, and a general row ensued. The banner was withdrawn, and quiet restored. The Prince having taken a fancy to the alligatorakin boot, had a pair made for him in Boston, whereby the size of his foot was discovered to be No. 7. Andrew B. Hutchinson, aso...

SECESSION ITEMS. Governor Corwin reached Washington city a few days since, and is looking remarkably well. He believe's Lincoln's Administration will be highly national and conservative ; but yet thinks a little fear will be the best nostrum which can in the mean time be administered to the Southern extremists. He doe? not think it advisable for Mr. Lincoln to give any expression to his views until after the Electoral College shall have met, as such ac expression would only be constructed into an evidence of alarm on his part, and would do no good." We have intelligence that the Georgia Legislature will certainly enact laws restricting commercial intercourse with those Northern States which have nulli fied that constitutional provision which has been truly called the corner-stone of the Constitution. This measure will bo effectual, and is probably intended as a substitute for secession. Tennessee is decidedly against the Secession movement. Indeed, some of the writers there ...

The firm referred to, wrote to the reverend Doctor "respectfully demanding" his authority for the statement in order that they might ".publicly deny it."

l_^- Fred Douglass, the well-known and talented mulatto fugitive from Maryland, a few days ago received a letter from an individual calling himself Charles Happ, and describing himself as a " whight man," stating that he had been informed that Douglass " had an onely daughter," and was willing " to give $15, 000 or $20,000 to any respectable _. whight man' who would marry her and cherish life;" and concludes by declaring his willingness to make himself" agreeable " on " those conditions. To this Fred responds that Happ is a stranger _. and gives no referance for his character and responsibility ; that his letter is dated Auburn, without stating the street he lives in, and that he may, therefore, be an inmate of the penitentiary at that place ; that he (Douglass) has not got $15,000 ; that he has no objection to Happ's complexion, but that his, " grammer and spelling are so bad that he is not fit to associate with Miss Douglass in any capacity ¦whatever." _, g^* Samuel Gladding...

Mrs. Lincoln.—A. correspondent of The World who evidently sees the future mistress of the White House in the most favorable point of view, writes of her as follows: "She is yet apparently upon the advantageous side of forty, with a face upon which dignity and sweetness are blended, and an air of cultivation and refinement to which familiarity with the courtly drawing-rooms of London, or the aristocratic saloons of Paris, would hardly lend an added grace. She is admirably calculated to preside over our republican court. If one were permitted so far to describe her personal appearance as to meet half way the respectful curiosity which is generally felt upon the subject, the description would be that she is slightly above the medium stature, with brown eyes, clearly cut features, delicate, mobile, expressive ; rather distinguished in appearance than beautiful, conveying to the mind generally an impression of self-possession, stateliness and elegance. I distrust my own opinion upon ...
