SONG OF THE HOOPS Sailing down the crowded strett,-Scraping every one they meet, * With a rushing whirlwind Mood,. Muffled belles around abound. Hoop! hoop! hoop f What a vast, expansive swoop ! Hoops of whalebone, short and crisp, Hoops of wirethia as a wisp; Hoops of brass, thirteen yards long. Hoops of steelconfirm'd and strong; Hoops of rubber, soft and slick. Hoops ofrepingj bundling thick ; Hoops of lampwick, cordand leather Hoopj that languish in wet weather ; Hoops that spread out Bilken siirU, Hanging off froajiWj flirts. Sweeping off the publio lands, Turning over apple-stands; felling children to the ground. As they flaunt and whirl around. Hoop! hoop! hoop! What a vast expansive snoop! Jolly hoops, that wriggle round, Sober hoops, that away profound; Springy hoops, that shake and wag. Broken hoops, that droop and drag; Moniter hoops, all overgrown, Junior hoops, of smaller bone; Hoops that ravuh lover'a eyes, Hoops that rand their breasts with size; Hoops that sh...

As there Is probably no spot within the wide domain of our good old Keystone, moro worthy of occupying & column in the first number of The Press, than this Iron Metropolis of Western Pennsylvania. I shull endeavor to givo you a hurried sketch of my first impressions of the location, oxtent, and appearance of Pittsburgh as a city, and the enterprise, wealth, and general character of its population. Pittsburgh—tho site of old Fort Duquesne, together with her environs, Allegheny City, Manchester, and Birmingham, occupies within her densely built portion alone, an area of over two thousand aores, and more than twice that extent if ne include her less populous suberbs. Surrounded on all sides with exhaustions mountains of minerals, and having within it the confluence of two navigable rivers—tho Allegheny and Monongahela, whiob at this point unite in forming the Ohio, thus placing tho head of tho...

CAUSES OP XH£ HINDOO HE VOLT. Various reasons have been assigned—all but the true ones—why Hindostan should have broken into insurrection; why fho beaten slaves should, at last, have turned pn their oppressors. There are over 100,000,000 people in India subject to British sway. They have been kept in order by an army of 282,000 men—of whom only one-seventh are Europeans. The i-emuining 240,000 soldiers are natives, largely but not wholly officered by Europeans. , These native troops, again, are sectionally divided by castes.-—thoy consist of Rajpoots, Brahmins, inferior castes of Hindoos, Mohammedans, and a. few Christian converts. The native trqops are bravo in battle and faithful at all times, provided their officers are Europeans, who can keep up their discipline. One casto of Sepoy? dislike, distrust, and. will endeavor to disobey native officers of another enste. Of late, iiativo officers have greatly preponderated in the native regiments. The remedy would be to have none but...

A crowd gathered abont Third and Chestnut streets, which was worth seeing, a portiion of which looked as if it had been ughting all its life, except when drinking. A dispatch gained currency that the fight had lasted un hour and eleven minutes; that forty-two rounds were fought, during which Bradley was defeated, after having his jaw broken.
