Among tho domestic incidents we note that the world has now heard, it is to bo hoped, the last of the sordid and savage murderer, Troppman, whose un exampled crime, in September last, has ever since occupied the pens and pencils of tho French journalists. It will be remembered that he slaughtered an entire family, including tho mother and some very young children, whom ho decoyed into a lonely placo for the purpose, and his object was to possess himself of some property belonging to tho poor creatures. So detestable a villain has not been known in our time,- and the world is well rid of him. He was executed in Paris on tho morning of tho 19th at seven. Ho made no revelations. His last hours were made miser able enough, for, though condemned three weeks ago, he never knew till near the dawn of his death-day, when he was to die ; and; in the moan time, ho had been subject to tho physical torturo of the strait waistcoat, in addition to the mental ...

He had little difficulty in.cloaring the ship, andas her ballast was. all stowed, and the few stores she noeded taken on board, there was nothing to delay the sailing, if the wind blew fair. And as luck had it, a fight breeze sprang up about four in the afternoon from tho north-west. It was then that the Yankee communicated his design to tho skipper of tho Monarch. Up to this time ho had kept his own counsel, wisoly judging that it would bo better to say nothing concerning tho real object of his voyage, until it became absolutely neces sary to do so. Ho discovered, however, that tho cap tain was in no wiso surprised. " I have thought there was something in tho wind, Rath," he said, " for some time. Howsoever, it wasn't any business of mine.

Mark was lifted into the stern sheets, tho others stepped in, and with a vigorous «hove tho fisherman sent the boat into deep water, jumping into her as he did so. With a strong sweep hor head was sent seaward, and the oarsmen bent to their work.

I., to see a gentleman who has gained no little reputation of lato by a novel species of charity-that of giving strawberry festi vals in tho Summer, and roast turkey dinners in tboir season to thousands of prisoners in different parts of tbo country. This singular generosity he has practiced a number of years past, until it has become, ono might almost say, his ruling passion. He began, half a dozen years ago or moro, by giving 500 dollars to tho State Prison of his own State (a small institution), the interest of which is to bo forever used in tho purohase of a roast dinner to be eaten on his birthday-the 31st of January. Two years ago he made a similar gift to the Connecticut Stale Prison, the sum given in this oaso being 1666 dollars, on which the State has agreed to pay 100 dollars interest in perpétuant, and to expend ...

TELEGRAMS. NEWCASTLE. TERRIFIC GALE AND FLOODS. Sunday night. A terrific gale has been blowing all day, with violent rain squalls. The ketch Ino is wrecked on the North Shore; her crew, consisting of four men were saved by the lifeboat, which, in the absence of Hickey, was taken out by Jackson. The rescue was a gallant one. The gale is worse than when the ill-fated Cawarra was lost. A brick house at Honeysuckle Point has been blown down, and other damage has been done. The railway to Maitland is under water in several places. Communication is only practicable with Waratah. Hexham is all under water, and more than twenty families resident in that locality are flooded-out.   From near Waratah to Weakley's Swamp, the country appears to have been transformed into an inland sea. The chain of the Hexham punt broke, and the     punt has drifted down the river.   The lighter Highlander, which was waiting a turn   at the wharf,...

The Roman Catholic Orphan School at Parramatta. , The Inspector of Public Charities has issued a very unfavourable report of the state of the Roman Catholic Orphan School at Parramatta. Mr. King calls attention, in the first instance, to the faot that there do not appear to be any printed rules and regula tions for the guidance of the officers in the fulfilment of their respective dutieB, and he refers to a letter of his predecessor (Mr. Walker), submitting regula tions for approval, which appear to have been lost sight of. The inconvenience and irregularity which is caused by the want of such rules is painfully obviouB from the present report. The most salient features of the report, which bears date 8th February last, are as under: Mr. King found the building in a wretched state of repair; the walls and ceilings had not been whitewashed or the wood work painted for more than two years, and consequently the aspect of the wards, dormitories, and school rooms, is most forlorn.
