STOLEN CHILD RECOVERED Some two years since a little girl about eig ht years of age was stolen from her parents in New York, and so effectually concealed were the arrangements of the abductors that all efforts to reclaim the missing child proved abortive. Recently, however, suspicion was excited that the girl had been stolon by parlies in this city, who were bringing her up as their own ; nnd accordingly, in compiny with a friend, ihe mother yest»'r<Mv came hiiliPr, nnd commenced n search for the lost one, hnving first obtained thu nid of n mnle friend, well acquainted with Ihe circumstances. The firsl Iliin^ to be discovered was the residence of the kidnappers, and this after p ntipnt and protracted search and inquiry, being found out, the moiher at once proceeded to the premises, nnd knocking nt the door it was opened by her own daughter, between whom and the moiher there was a mutual recognition. The woman of the house, however, persisted in claiming tho child as h...

ATMOSPHERIC TELEGRAPH. Some lime ago considerable attention was directed lo an ingenious invention fbjr the conveyance of packages through a tube, of any length, by the force of atmospheric pressure. At the present session of Congress the inventor, a Mr. Iihiel S. Richardson, presented a petition asking an appropriation to construct a line between Washington and Baltimore, lo test (he value of the invention. A special committee on the subject was appointed by the Senate, which, after due investigation, has reported a bill authorising the construction of a line of this telegraph between (he cities named, under the supervision of the Postmaster, General. It is now so late in the session, and ihere is so much other very important business, befor Congress, that it is doubtful wheth¬ er this bill can meet the consideration which it deserves ; but the experiment is well worth trying, as (he plan has been examined by scientific men and pronounced feasible. The electro-magnelic tele...

Matt Ward arrived in Louisville one day last week. The next day The Courier chronicled the following incident: Whipping a School AKstrets.—-A, very esiimable lady, a teacher in one of the city schools, was attacked by a woman with a club, yesterday evening, in the neighborhood of Xick.son and Gray-sis. It appears that ihe woman felt liprseff aggrieved because the leacher had found it necessary to correct, in a gontle mnnner, a refrnctory child of tho pugnacious woman, who- had been sent to learn something besides warfare, as she could doubiless have learned the savage arts at home. Thanks to a gentleman who interfered at the lime, the insulted teacher was not seriously injured. We hand the name of ihis heroic woman (Mrs. Adkins) ' down to posteriiy as a name well worthy to ba classed among those whose bantlings are superior to the rules of school disci pline.

Parson B., was trul y "" a pious man, and at the long graces which always followed the meals, he and the whole famil y knelt except the parson's brother, who being o 'er much fat, usually stood with his back to the table and overlooking the garden. One day, it was summer-time, the parson being unusually favored, not appearing to notice the fidgeity movemenlsiof his brother, who kept twisting about until finding no end to his thanks, ho broke in with—" Cut it short, Parson, cut it short; the cows are in the garden playing h-~li with the cabbages." A phrson bavins the misfortune to admit as a lodger into his house an individual of bad reputation named .Bell, turned him out the other day with Ihe remark, that he would never keep a bell in his house that wanted' hanging. .

The mission of New Tbilisi. 8ome quaint writer, (we cannot just now recall Ilia name,) terms Nature " The most perfect calculator in creation." This Is probably true, though oddly enough expressed, for however much shortsightedness may be apparent in Human economy there is none discoverable in the Divine. Nature is kept in balance by antagonistic forces. There are no exceptions to the laws of gravitation, attraction and repulsion. Everything in her domain is subject to fixed Uws, working harmoniously and uninterruptedly. The nice adaptation of means to ends is everywhere perceivable, and the recognition of this adaptedness is what inspires men to wait hopefully fur the " good time coming." The law of Moses was peculiarly adapted to the wonts of the people to whom it was given. Humanity, as defined by modern philanthropists, was not a leading characteristic of the Mosaic code. A retaliatory spirit, rather than a spirit of Lore, seems to vitalize it It did not aim at the refor...

Tbe Primitive fflaa. I hold it morally impossible for God to have created, in tbe beginning, such men and women as we find the human race, in their physical condition, now to be. Examine the book of Genesis, which contains the earliest annals of the human family. As is commonly supposed, it comprises the first 2,369 years of human history. With a child-like simplicity, thia book describes the infancy of mankind. Unlike modern histories, it details the minutest circumstances of social and individual life. Indeed it is rather a series of biographies than a history. The false delicacy of modern times did not forbid the mention of whatever was done or suffered. And'yet, over all that expanse of time—for moro than one-third part of the duration of the human race—not a single instance is recorded of a child born blind, or deaf, or dumb, or idiotic, or malformed in any way I During the whole period, not a single case of of natural death in infancy, or childhood, is to be found. Not one...

Agricultural Fair sit Tioga. The first Agricultural Fair in this county was held at Tioga on tbe 4th and 5th inst., and, was said, by persons booked up in such matters, to compare well with similar exhibitions in older districts, and where Agricultural Societies have been long, in operation. Independent of all comparisons, there was a fine display of Fruits, Domestic Manufactures, Fancy Articles, Cattle, Horses, &c, &c, well calculated to surprise the natives. People of both sexes, from all parts of the county, were in attendance on both days, crowding the hall, and never tired with feasting their eyes on the beauty of the various articles there exhibited. On the forenoon of the 6th, a plowing match took place between Simon Prutzman and Isaac Aspinwall, of Tioga township, with horse teams, and somebody else with an ox team.' The ox team, for some reason, was soon withdrawn, and the strife proceeded between the other parties, until each had p lowed his allotted gr...

A Chance for Antl • Slavery Men The. Virginia colonizalionista notice the fact that the heirs of a gentleman of Virginian, lately deceased, wish, in compliunee with the wishes of their testator, to send 48 negroes to Liberia in November. These people will not be freed except money for tbeir transportation can be raised from private donations. They are appraised at S35.000. Here is a rare chance for philanthropists.—Exchange. Ok, indeed! such a rare chance for the exercise of philanthropy—such an astonishing chance to embalm 825,000 worth of immortal souls in the milkand-water of human kindness! 935,000 worth of souls and bodies—put up like so many working oxen! Shade of Howard'. What is the argument? Ob, we enslaved their grandfathers and grandmothers, after kidnapping and forcing them away from their native shores. We bought, sold and flogged their fathers and mothers, gave them in marriage one to another, separated them—wife from husband—parents from children—brothers from sis...

From Kansas. Kansas Aug. 28. 1654. To the Editor of the National Era : Those who intend to come, and feel an interest in tho success of freedom in Kansas, cannot come too soon. They should be here before the choosing of ^ tne first Legislative Council, as upon that Council much will depend ; for, if it be Pro-Slavery, it will pass a law permitting Slavery in the Territory—and once established, it will be hard to erad¬ icate. My main object now is to warn emigrants against the impositions of Slavery propagandists, who are in the practice of telling persons from the free State all manner of lying stories about Kansas, to deter them from coming here. As an instance i may mention that a.gentleman came here a few days ago from Pennsylvania, aud falling in with a prominent slaveholder, he was told that it was of no use to go further, for- the country was all claimed, and the emigrants were fig hting over il ; that the country was very sickly, so that the people could scarcely live, wi...

Her keel has been laid down, and several of her' bulkheads or compartments are raised, and the works are proceeding with energy and expedition. A railroad has been laid down the entire length of her way, to facilitate the conveyance of the materials from the factory » the different parts of the vessel. The exact dimension ' s of the ship are as follows: Tunnage, builderV measurment, 23,000 tuns ; lunnage burthen, 10,000 tuns ; extreme length, 680 feet ; extreme breadth, 83 feet) ; extreme depth, 58 feet; power of engines, (screw and paddle,) 2600 horse.

Women. Theodore Parker, in a recent " sermon, " Uttered the following, touching women : There are three classes of women-First, domestic drudges, who are wholly taken up in the material details of their housekeeping and childkeeping. Their'housekeeping is a trade and no more ; and afler they nave done that, there is no more which they «an do. Io New England it is a small «lasa, getiing leu every year. Next there are domestic dolls, wholy taker np with the voin show which delights the eye and ear. They are ornaments of estate. Similar toys, I suppose, will one dny be more cheaply manufactured at Paris, Nuremberg, at Prankfart-on-t he-Main, and other toynhops in Europe, out of w« or papier mache, >nd sold is Boston at the haberdasher' s by lbs down.
