Somebody, said to be a Russian noble ruined by emancipation,

on the 16th inst. tried to assassinate Czar Alexander. He fired a pistorat him as he entered his carriage. s One Oasip Ivan.hof, said to be a peasant or sub-agent of pollee, threw up the assassin's arm, thereby saving the Emperor. He was of course ennobled, an honour which, we beliaye,_exempte him from the stick, and will, let us- trust, obtain more substantial, favours. The death of Alexander at the hands of an angry slaveholdar could be of no use either to Russia or the-world.
