MIDNIGHT ELOPEMENT FROM A RECTORY,—The inhabitants of an usually quiet village near Stoney Stanton, Leicestershire, were thrown into intense excitement on Wednesday mornine by learning that in the course of the night Miss B-, who was under the care of the venerable rector of the parish, had eloped with a stocking-maker or frame-work knitter. It was discovered that they bad taken a conveyance to Leicester, where a license was obtained, and by eight o'clock they were married at the office of the registrar. They were pursued and captured, and by the mail train taken to the village from whence they had flown, the young lady being again safely lodged under the roof of her Venerable guardian. It is ex- pected that the youth will be prosecuted for having made false statements before the regitras-.—Leeds Evening Express. THE FFNIAN O'FARRELL.—A correspondent of an Irish paper states that O'Farrell, whose parents were so independent as to be almost accounted wealthy, was educated for the legal profession, and that at the age of about 22 he expressed a desire to take holy orders. Tl is inclination seeming to be real and sincere, he was sent by his friends to this country, where he remained for some time, and received minor orders, but at this period the growing disease of the brain seems to have commenced to develope itself, and he suddenly disappeared from the college without making any commvnication to the Superior, and unexpectedly made his appearance again in Australia. The idea of entering the church was abandoned, and O'Farrell soon after went into business, but his eecentricities having been increased by tendency to intemperate habits, produced, as a natural con- sequence, failure in business. From this period he was under particular supervision, when the full development of the madness took place in the terrible attempt made on the life of the Prince. Go AND Do LIKEWISE.—A teachable woman, with bright eyes, who 'improves each shining hour,' not only has many chances in the year of finding a suitable husband, but has many years to do it in. She grows old so much more slowly than the flirt; her mind brightens as her complexion fades. Indeed the power of mind over matter will go farther than this. I have known girls who were positively plain at twenty grow comparatively good looking at thirty; but then they had been making themselves agreeable in the very best fashion alt their lives. I have in my memory especially one dear contemporary of mine, whom I had the wit to love and value, though not the wisdom to imitate. She was almost ugly in her youth; more- over, she was shy and awkward. She had a painful consciousness of her plainness, which she got over as she ceased to think or care about her looks; for nature had gifted her with a mind and heart as beau- tiful as her features were plain, By the time that I was become an angular old maid, her inner woman had so got the better of her out ward that she was really an attractive woman and I have heard an eminent painter say that her face was almost the loveliest he had seen. She married a man of con- siderable distinction when she was near forty, and I am convinced they wert! as happy ever afterward" as any prince and princess in a fairy tale. Hundreds of people loved her—men', and women as wpjl. Women did not resent her popularity with men, fpr for it was an attraction perfectly clear of all personal vanity and conscious flattery. She was as modest as Burns's daisy.' I never saw her make an eye' in my life, I believe firmly that she enjoyed more happiness in one of her least happy years than I did in ten of my best. But she deserved happiness, ar.d I didn't. My dear, I hope you will follow her example and not mine. She was a virgin and I was a silly flirt.—St. /'aid's.' COLLISION IN THE CHANNEL.—Theiron-bulltscrew steamers Gibralter, Harris, master, from London,boiand to Lisbon and Gibralter, with a cargo of Government stores and private merchandise, and the Blonde, Catmur, master, fiom Ibiail and Falmouth, bound to Antwerp, with a cargo of grain, arrived in Portsmouth harbour on Monday morning with each of their bows smashed in from collision with each other on the previous evening, in the channel. Both vessels had a hole in their bows near the stem piece large enough for a good-sized boat to go through, the iron plates round the apertures being bent and twisted in all kinds of eccentric forms. The figurehead and buU warks forward of the Gibraltar appeared to have sustained but little injury, but below the level of the upper deck her forebody was utterly destroyed. The Blonde's damage was exhibited more in the upper part of the fore body. The remains of her bowsprit; lay thrown back on the forecastle, and a V piece of the Gibralter's fore body remained sticking up through her upper deck from the gap below in her bows, where it must have broken off at the time of the separation of the vessels after the collision. From the reports made by the masters of both vessels it appears that the collision occurred about 10 30 p.m. on Saturday, during a thick fog, off Selsea Bill, the Owers Lightship bearing at the time N.N.E. from the vessels, at a distance of ten miles. The speed of each vessel at the time of collision has been differently estimated, but it has been stated to have been seven knots, and that it cannot have been much less than this is evident from the tremendous effects produced upon each vessel. They met nearly as possible stein to stem, the Gihralter's stem entering t'^e Blonde's port bow, 2ft. fiom the stem edge of the latter. Being the higher vessel of the two, the Gibraltar's bows, or rather their wreck, after entering those of the Blonde, rode over the latter, and the two thus became interlocked in a tangled mass of iron plates and framing. Luckily, the sea was perfectly smooth, with no wind, and both vessels had good sound water-tight compartments about 20 ffet inboard from their stems, but for five-and-a-half hours they lal thus grappled and grinding each other in the grim solitude of a still foggy night at sea. As the fore compartments filled with water, the Gibraltar settled down still firmer upon the Blonde, and nothing then remained but to throw overboard the cargo, which was chiefly beer, from the forehold of the former vessel. This was at length accomplished, and then the vessels were separated, and remained afloat. The water flowed freely in and out of the bows of each vessel through the huge gaps, but the fore compart- ments held out, the sea continued in its most amiable mood, and the two disabled ships, with their pumps going, commenced their course along the land in company for the harbour of Portsmouth, where they arrived soon after 9 a.m. on Monday morning, No lives were lost, and only one man was injured by the collison. He was one of the crew of the Blonde, and suffered a slight injury to the shoulder joint. The escape of the crew of each vessel from any further injury at the moment of the collision is something extraordinary, as the sleeping berths in each vessel were in the part smashed ia.
