His unhappy daughter had scarcely power to continue her narative: her breathing! became short, and the damps of death already hung on her brow.

She threatened to expose me :?more than my life was in her power and finding her inexorable to my prayers. I snatched a knife that lay on the table, i and stabbed her to the hiart. The knife was marked with the name of the unfor- j tunate Grandier, and, added to his being v_ found on the spot, went far on his trial to condemn him.

EVENING STAR. LOCAL AFFAIRS. Wa'ch-hoiise R'port."?The ediforial Squire stems determined to provoke us into collision with him. It was our in tint ion to have treated him as others do, and let his venom go unnoticed, but as this is the only paper in which the po lice reports are published, we feel called upon to make a few remarks upon his in si-nations in last Sa'urday's paper. He says that "while we have no disposition to call in question the rii ht, we fed our stives justifu d in objecting to the practice adopted by some of our cotemporaries, of publishing the names of those persons who are brought to the watch houses in this city, or lined by the police magis trates for small offences which are" of every day occurrence and which, it seems to us, are beneath the character and standing of a local reporter to notice." No one will pretend to doubt the Squire's honesty in this. He has had pool reason to object to both watch and work house reports. Again, he says, "what o-'r practice ...

The gran lour of that scene cannot be compassed in one glance, lie stood amid a grove and prudent body of men, conscious indeed of the wrongs of the country, but relying upon modest petition fir redress. They had never let their im agination ramble into visions of upright and chanless Independence. A thousand things f>rbalethe idea.

EVENING STAR. ? ? WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. MAY 1?. 1853. Rise of I*lar? Property. The steady increase in the value of real estate in "Washington is a matter of gen eral remark and congratulation. AVe sincerely rejoice at it, and can only hope that it may not be a speculative and tem porary affair. It is well known that the fictitious value set on certain houses and lands on the Island, several years ago, so inflated the ideas of property holders there that they ran wild with an artificial excitement, and the most lamentable results ensued. We would fain hope that this state of things is not to occur again. Nor do we think it will. The people, generally speak ing, have learned a valuable lesson by the past, which will renderthem more cautious for the future. Real estate is advancing on the Island, especially in the vicinity of 4^ street and GreenleafV Point. The recent purchases made there, by Mr. Mills, the artist, and by the gentlemen who bought the property recently s...

TH3 FAST ?GE. It is a common remark, that we are living in a fast age. Fast discoveries of gold have led to fast annexations, fast emigrations, last steamers, fast railroad cars, fast clippers, fast horses, fast men, fast women, and fast children. A fast time, generally, all around the board! But our object this evening was to al lude to one of the most alarming indica tions of fastness in this very fast age: .that is, the rapidity with which the public crimes and popular calamities of our country are passed over and forgot ten. Was there ever any thing like it in tlie his-ory of the world? We hope not. The fast works began their worst by Mowing up steamboats on our western waters. At first the people really appear ...

The woman drew the curtain asid<% and William, fixing his eyes on Mrs. Smith, pointed silently to the body of his wife, shrouded in the cerements of death, and lying with the pale uncovered face up turned to that heaven for which her pure life had been a fitting preparation.

So it is in regard to la bor; they like to see others work aikl toil for their daily bread, but do not like to do it themselves, nor even have the praise of working for a living. These are the drones?the dust that floats upon the air of labor, and shifted by their own worthlessness from one place to another, until their gaudy glitter?-borrowed from the reflection of their own wealth?be comes the means whereby they are hurled from existence, and even from memory itself.
