foundling in opulence by leaving it with 
John Jacob Astor recently. The authors 
of the infant's being will be disappointetl 
to learn that it was given to the police.

which resulted in the death of two men, 
and severe wounding of five others. The

Pa. ; and Frank Truei of Ehnira, N. Y. 

—A man in New York rode from one 
end of the city railroad lines to the other 
without paying fare, and won fifty flollars 
thereby. He would get on to a car, and 
when the conductor came round would 
discover he had taken the wrong one, and 
get off ; he pursued this method to the end 
of the route. 

— The New York Post suggests that the 
ashes and garbage of that city be saved 
separately, the ashes to be sold far filling 
in waste places, and the garbage for fatten- 
ing hogs. It estimates that each of 40,000 
lamiles in the city throw away garbage 
enough to keep a hog, and that 40,000 hogs 
so supported would produce 40,000 bbls. of 
pork, annually. 

— Grasshoppers are thick in Iowa. A 
train on the Northwestern recently was 
80 delayed by millions ot these insects on 
the track as to require one hour and ten 
minutes' time to run ten miles. The dri- 
ving wheels of the engine became perfectly 
clogged with the mashed mass of grasshop- 
pers, so much so as to almost entirely re- 
tard their revolution. 

— The St. Louis and Illinois Bridge Co. 
has accepted the proposals of James An- 
drews, of Pittsburgh, for the entire stone 
work of their bridge. The contract will 
amount to over three-quarters of a million

cember of 1869. It should be stated that 
this is the bridge at Washington avenue, 
and not the one contemplated by Chicago 
parties owning another charter. 

— The enlargement of Boston by the an- 
nexation of its nearest suburbs is now an 
almost assured fact. Already the people 
of the lower part of Dorchester are con- 
sidering this subject favorably, and regard, 
it as only a question of time when Nepon- 
set river shadl be one of the limits of Bos- 
ton. The act under which Roxbury has 
come in, applies to "any citv or town

— Stephen Hickox, of Williamston 
Massachusetts, who will be ninety years 
old next month, in riding from Bee Hill to 
church, recently, was greatly annoyed by 
the jolting he received from the stones in 
the road, and on the next morning he com- 
menced to remove them. This he accom- 
plished thoroughly t^s far as the village, a

the 13th. She, with three children and 
another woman, name unknown, were rid-

when the tug unhooked, the tongue drop- 
ped and the horses ran down the road at a 
r^id rate. All were thrown out, and Mrs. 
Harding's head was fearfully crushed in

houses in Brussels and other German cities, 
by means of which the lady inmates are

—There is not in the whole of Switzer- 
land a toll gate^ The government forbids 
by law anjrthing which may tend to inter- 
rupt or interfere with travel in or between 

the different cantons. The magnificient 
public roads which one finds everywhere 
throughout tha country are kept in order 
at the expense of the cantons through 
which they run, the federal authorities 
having each paid, however, at the construc- 
tion, one half of the expense. 

— The French rival our town country- 
men in the novelties to which inventive 
genius is applied. Among a late list ofpa- 
tents granted at Paris, is one for " comns 
with bells {cercueilH a sannettes) for cases of 
premature burial." This device must be 
an inexpressible consolation to those peo- 
ple chief anxiety is lest they should 
be buried alive. But the great question is 
how the merits of the invention were test- 
ed. Did some ardent devotee of science 
allow hiui^elf to Ihj prematurely coffined 
and sealed up for some minutes, until the 
bells could be heard above ground ? It 
strikes one that the chances of anybody 
being conveniently within hearing at the 
time the bells were tinkled, even could they 
be heard, must be so slight as to Ix; hardly 
worth counting on.

employ he has been for some thirty years, 
was on duty one night on the platform 
he is still stationed, when the London train 
came in. Among the passengers was one 
gentleman who misseu his tooting at the 
carriage door, just as the train was about 
to start, and fell between platform and 
wheels. At that instant the train moved on. 
Another moment and all would have been 
ever, but a strong hand seized him and 
twiched him on the platform, so, with no 
worse injury than a fright and a shaking, 
the passenger went on his way. Had that 
ticket-collector not been there, or had he 
been less ready, the history of the world 
would have read, no man can say how dlf 
ferently . for the traveler was Louis Napo- 

— A London correspondent of the Man- 
chester Examiner eays : " It is understood 
that the Que«n will, shortly lose the per- 
sonal services of her faithful hiahland gil-

ty's chosen attendant in her rides and 
drives ever since the death of the Prince 
Consort— who had a special liking for and 
trust in him— transferred him to her ser- 
vice. He was included, as it may be re- 
membered, in the striking picture by Sir. 
Edward Land^eer, of the Queen at Osbom," 
in this year's Academy Exhibition, and no 
photograph could have given a more per- 
fect lac simile of his personal appearance 
and respectful bearing. It appears that, 
despite the confidential post assigned him 
in the royal household, ne is desirous to re- 
deem the troth long ago plighted to a young 
Scotch woman of his own grade, ana it is 
understood that a residence in one of the

— A correspondent of the Glasgow Uer- 
aid who recently visited the Island of Lew- 
is, in the Hebrides, says : The women do 
all the heavy work. They dig, delve and 
hoe ; they carry heavy loads of manure to 
the fields, and in the peat season you may 
see them all day, carrying cretlsful of peat 
from the bog. You will often see a man 
trudging along the road beside a woman, 
but tne creel is always on the woman's back. 
If thev come to a river or ford, the woman 
crosses first, deposits her creel on the other 
side, and then returns to carry the man 
across. The woman in the rural districts 
here is, in fiict, a beast of burden, and men 
in looking out for wives, look largelv to 
mu.scular development. In the middle of 
one peat season, when labor was much in 
demand, a man who was supposed to be a 
confirmed old bachelor, suddenly married. 
A friend met him some days after. " What 
for did you take a woman like that ?" said 
the friend. " Did you not hear," replied 
the man, " that my horse was dead v" 

— Dr. Bellows speaks, under date of Nu 
rembur^, of the precautions which are ta- 
ken against premature bunal. He says 
that in the cemetery there is a house, 
pleasantly arranged amid flower-beds and 
shrubs, to which all the dead arc at once 
carried after being laid out, and there 
placed on beds, each with a bell-ptill so 
connected with the hand that the least mo- 
tion of the supposed 'corpse on reviving 
must arouse the attendant and bring in- 
stant attention. All this humane precau- 
tion has never yet been rewarded with a 
single call upon its watchfulness. Once, 
however, in a case where the deceased had 
died with dropsy, the subsidence of water 
caused a fall of the arm— the bell rang, and 
the attendant who had watched for years 
for the sound, when it came was so fright- 
ened that he ran from his post and alarmed 
the neighbors, who afler sometime rallied 
and discovered the cause of the alarm. 
This method of guarding against prema- 
ture burial is quite common on the Conti- 
nent, but he thinks it not worth adopting 
in America— though we commonly bury 
much too early for decency.

by fire is, after St. Mark, the most im-

Venetian dialect it is called Zaniopolo. It 
was commenced in 1240, and finished in 
1430. It is the Westminster Abbey of the 
ancient republican city. The northern 
side h:i8 sustained the greatest damage, and, 
unfortunately, a painting by Titian, the 
martyrdom of St. Peter in the forest, has 
been destroyed. The church contains 
paintings by other celebratal painters, one 
of them by Paul Veronese, and these have 
been savea.

through iron tubes three and a half inches 
in diameter, laid down not very far under

ervoir of water compressing by its weight 
a reservoir of air beneath it. The tele- 
grams are placed In a cylinder fitting the 
tube air tight ; the compressed air is turned 
on, and the cylinder with its roll of des- 
patches is shot through to the next station, 
or, if by any chance it sticks fast at any 

Eoint, the water from the reservoir is let

of stoppage is marked. The system is as 
simple as It is economical. 

— M. Heurtebise communicates to a late 
number of I Invention a plan for produc- 
ing and economically employing hydrogen 
gas. which is both new and valuable. He 
places charcoal in a retort and raises it to 
a red heat, then pasbing a stream of car- 
bonic acid over it, eacn molecule of the 
acid absorbs two atoms of carbon forming 
two molecules of oxyde of carbon. In an- 
other retort heated red hot he passes two 
currents, one thus obtained and another of 
superheated ateam, when two atoms of car- 
bonic acid and two equivalents of hydro 
gen gas result. The carbonic acid gas is 
again passed over the heated charcoal and 
four equivalents of hydrogen are obtained. 
A continuous action is thus kept up, with 
a steady supply of hydrogen. 

—Mr. Crookes, says the Alaliail Times 
has shown that the favorite disinfectant, 
chloride of lime, is about the least eflScient 
of any of those substances reputed to pos- 
sess disinfectant qualities. Cnlorine itse!f 
is very little better, for if used in large 
enough quantities it will in time destroy 
the virus, but as it acts by way of oxyda- 
tion, and is living virus resisted this longer 
than dead oxydizable matter, before the 
gas can attack a virus everything else that 
it can oxydizc will be oxydized first.^^nd 
if when pure, chlorine Is so slow of acting, 
when adulterated with eighty per cent of 
lime, its value is proportionally less. In 
sulphurous and carbonic acid, on the other 
hand, there are sut>stance3 absolutely de- 
structive of every kind of living thing of 
low organization, such as cattle plague vi- 
rus is supposed to be. These substances, 
besides destroying the virus, attack it at 
once, and arrest all putrefying tendency. 

— When two locomotives having equal 
speed on a railroad track, meet from oppo- 
site directions, the shock actually destroys 
the momentum of both, and, therefore, 
makes a dead halt. The force of the shock, 
say the philosojjhers, will be equal to the 
shock which either, being at rest, would 
sustain if struck by theotlior moving with 
double the velocity. Action and reaction 
being e«iual, both bodies will be as much 
moved by reaction as by action. 
Should two railroad trains, running to- 
ward each other at the rate of 20 miles an 
hour colude, the shock would be precisely 
the same as though one had been at Kst 
and eben struck by a train moving at the 
rate of forty miles an hour. Where two 
steamboats run directly together, head on 
— one going 12 and the other 15 miles an 
hour, the concussion or shock each would 
suffer would be the same as though struck 
by the other at a speed of 27 miles an hour. 
Without stopping to philosophize upon the 
cause, boxers and pugilists know, by dear 
bought experience that the worst blows 
they ever receive in their combats are 
when a fist strikes a fist, because the force 
suflered by both parties is equal to the sum 
of the forces exerted t»y either arm. The 
adroit fighters, therefore, avoid encounters 
of that kind if possible. 

JL Story Abont ** False Hair.** 

Among the really interesting curiosities 
of the Paris Exhibition, every traveler tells 
us, are the picturesquely attired girls who 
are to be seen in front of the far eastern 
and northern department, and remarkably 
those who represent the national Scandi- 
navian peasantry. lo front of the Swedish 
restaurant, a real child of the north, ar- 
rayed in silver-braided skirts, and covered 
with filagree ornaments, has attracted a 
good deal of admiration. A thick plait of 
toir hair is wound round her muslin turban. 
Some days ago, two loungers in the Swed- 
ish Department of the Exhibition building 
were discui^ing vivaciously the merits of 
blonde Swedish girls. One gentleman 
maintained that the solid plait which fast- 
ened her coiffure was of her own hair, 
while his companion .pronounctni it Ut be 
false. They made a bet about it, and finally 
the girl was called, and one of the disput- 
ants addreased her: "Is that all your 
own hair?" asked he. "Why, whose 
should it beV" asked the fair Swede naive- 
ly. "It might have been bought; such 
things are often done," said her <iuestionor. 
" In our own country we often sell our 
hair," was the reply, "but we never buy 
it — why do you alsk me such a question ? ' 
" Because my friend here declares that it 
is false," After such an assertion there 
vras nothing left for her but to undo her 
plait, which fell in magnificent profusion 
at her feet. She did not appear at all sur- 
prised at the proceedings until the winner 
of the bet gave her the twenty francs he 
had won. Then she was fairly astonished. 
That was a hapipy day for her, and she 
counted on the recurrence ot the incident, 
and built an airy castle with the money 
her hair was going to bring her during the 
Exhibition, ohe would buy a fishing boat 
and nets with the money she had made, 
and then what a crowd of devoted admir- 
ers she would have round her when she 
returned to her Swedish home ! But hu- 
man curiosity has it^ bounds, and she had 
no further invitation to loosen her massive

While Ireland has sent us more emigrants 
than any other covmtry in the aggregates 
of the last twenty years, and nearly half 
of all, Germany is now sending us nearly 
twice as many, and almost halt of all who 
are coming. For this year, to date, the to- 
tal number of emigrants at New York is 
103,059, of whom 77,000 came from Ger- 
many, and 46,000 from Ireland. England 
IS coming up in the proportion, also ; her 
share of this year's emigration is nearly 
half of Ireland's, or over 20,000. 


I>ls]iom«aty in Trade. 

A man brings a pearl into your shop, 
and, holding it up, says : " I was fishing 
down on the bank, and I found this thing. 
I don't know wh«ther it is worth any 
thing or not, but they told me I could get 
a doUar for it." It is worth five hundred 
dollars ! " Oh yes," you say, " I guess it 
is worth that. I will give you a dol ar for 
It." And you take the pearl and give him 
the dollar. And you chucle over it, and 
boast of it. You not only do not think 
that you have done that which is dishonest, 
but you go to your partner, and hold up 
the pearl, and exul ingly say, "I baught it 
for a dollar." And when you go home at 
night you rub your hands, and say, " My 
dear, I had a rare stroke of luck to-day. * 
"Whst was it?" asks the wife. "Why, 
an ignorant fisherman came into the shop 
with a magnificent pearl, and I gave him 
a dollar for it ; and he went away as tick- 
led as any man could be — and I g^ess I was 
another man that was quite as happy as 
he was !" Oh, that the woman could use 
a woman's oflice ! Oh, that she could give 
expression to her moral Judgment! Oh, 
that she could flush and say, " I am asham- 
ed of you." Oh', that th«re could be in 
every household a faithful companion to 
rebuke those tendencies to cheating !— for 
I call it nothing less than cheating. 

I suppose this is tliat which we feel when 
we hunt out old picture stores and grope 
round for ancient and blackened canvasses, 
hoping that that which we buy for a mere 
song, on being washed and rubbe I and re 
stortnl, win prove to be a Raphael, a Titian, 
or something of that kind. A hereditary 
property, after being handed down from 
generation to generation, at last comes into 
the hands of some poor, uneducated wo- 
man ; and with other things that she does 
not understand the value of, there is an 
old black-faced picture. A man goes and 
looks at it, and says to himself, "I 8h<'uld 
not be surprised if that was a magnificent 
Vlurillo." He sees that the woman is un- 
conscious ol its value, and he takes care 
not to have her discover that he ouspects 
it to be valuable. But whenever he can 
get a ctiance without being obscived, he 
goes to it, and begins to work at one cor- 
ner of it, rubbing and scraping it. He 
aX^aia in at difi'ercnt times and continues 
the rubbing and scraping, using various 
turpentines and varnishes. 

And by an by he begins to see the end 
of a figure — a foot ; and he says, " No- 
body painted that foot that was not a mas- 
ter painter." But he aflects ignorance, 
and takes the woman at an advantage, and 
buys it. And he is anxious to get it home 
a.<i (luickly as possible, lie takes it, and 
fairly runs down the street for fear the wo- 
man may call him back. He succeeds in 
getting it away without awakening any 
suspicion, and is delighted. He at once 
puts it into the hands of a restorer, and it 
turns out to be a picture worth fifteen hun- 
dred dollars And all his life he boasts of 
how he got it, and in relating the circum- 
stance says "It cost me a ridiculous sum ; 
I paid next to nothing for it." It is among 
the great events of his history. He is so 
unconscious of the simple law of honor 
and right, that, as long as he lives he sits 
on this fault and crows his own shame ! —

The mosquito. 


It is unscientific to say that mosauitoes 
bite, for they liave no teeth; ana they 
have no need of teeth to seize upon or pre- 
pare their food, for tbey are dainty ; and 
take food only m the liquid form — spoon 
victuals. They are a chivalric race, and 
attack their enemies with a sort of sword 
or lance; no doubt they consider biting 
and gouging quite vulgar. The lance of 
the mosquito is a very beautiful and per- 
fect piece of work ; it is smoother than 
burmshc-d steel, and its point is so fine and 

Serfect that the most powerful microscope 
oes not discover a flaw in it. As the most 
delicate cambric needle is to the crowbar, 
so is the mosquito's lance to the Damascus 
blade. The lance is worn In a scabbard or 
sheath, which, in every respect, is worthy 
of it ; it is often ornamented with plumes. 
Man carries his sword at his side, and the 
mosquito on his head. The latter arrange- 
ment has manifest and wonderful advan- 
tages — the weapon la always en garde, and 
does not impede locomotion by getting en- 
tangled with the legs. The lance and its 
sheath being on the head, and being some- 
what flexible, is often called a proboscis. 
This view of the case is strengthened by 
the fact that the scabbard is a suction pipe 
through which the mosquito drinks his 
food. As Moses struck the rock with his 
8tafl[' so the mosquito, with a thrust of his 
lance pierces the foimtain, and the nectar, 
gushing into the scabbard, finds its way 
to the more sensitive and vital parts. But 
is not this calling the lance and scabbard 
a proboscis, thus likening the delicate mos- 
QUito to the monstrous elephant, a little 
Ukr-fetchod ? 

The mosquito is the most orderly of all 

animals. There is no bird which sings so 

much. He never tires of his simple song. 

I How happy he must be, singing cheerily 

far Into the night. What a volume of 
melody from so slight a creature ! If a 
man had a voice so loud proportionate to 
his weight, he might hold conversation 
across the Atlantic, and there would be no 
need of a telegraph. Linnaus, out of com- 
pliment to the musical powers of the mos- 
quito, named it Culex Pipiens. But there 
are those who say the mosquito has no vo 
cal organs, and that his notes are not mu- 
sic, but the sotinds produced by the 
fiapping of the wings, or by some other 
similar and purely mechanical movement. 
Have those detractors music in their 
souls y 

The mo6<iuito might bt classed among 
our domestic animals, may wc not say 
among the household pets V They are the 
almost cx)nstant companions of man in 
town and countr\' during the holiday sea- 
son of summer.' No home without the 
mosquito. What att'ection! How they 
stick to us, closer than brothers! They 
often come a great way — hundreds of miles 
— to be with us. 

Most of those who greet us in this city 
have left their distant homes in Jersey and 
have made the perilous journey across a 
wide river. They also love their own 
society, and travel in companies which 
sometimes comprise millions of Individ 
uals — in swarms which obscure the sun. 
But the commonplace detractors say 
that mosquitoes are bred In unwhole- 
some swamps, and that it is only the wind 
which bears them, as It does feathers and 
malaria, wherever it listeth. Let us in- 
quire about the earliest beginning of the 
mosquito ; let us take him in the egg. The 
mother mosquito has notions of naval 
•rchitecturo, and out of the eggs she lays 
constructs a well-modeled boat, with ele- 
vated prow and stem, and well-propoi- 
tioned midship. For the boat she employs 
250 to lioO eggs, building it up piecemeal, 
somewhat after the manner of men, binding 
together the individual eggs by means of a 
powerful water-proof cement into a substanj 
tial and complete structure. Unfortuntely 
we are unable to give a receipt for the 
water-proof cement. jThere are many who 
would like to have it. The boat is built 
on the water, abandoned to the mercy of 
the wind and the wave. Thanks to the 
water-proof cement, she can neither be 
broken, wetted or sunk ; she is safer than if 
she were copper-bottomed. The httle 
craft it must be remembered, is freighted 
with life— each of its 250 or aOO little state- 
rooms has its tenant. After a few days 
cruising the occupants of the shells come 
forth, and the ship is destroyed. But those 
little creatures are surely not mosquitoes ; 
they appear more like fish, or serpents, or 
little at&gOTtA. On closer examination they 
proveto DC what everyone knows under 
the name of " wigglers," they are the larvae 
of the mosquito. They wiggle about in 
the well-known way for a week or two, 
and. after changmg their skins two or three 
times, they assume quite a new form and 
movement. They are now what the boys 
call " tumblers." and are the pupse of the 
mosquito. In about a week it the weath- 
er, etc., be favorable, sonething of the form 
of a mosquito may be seen through the 
transparent skin of the tumbler. Shortly 
the prisoner escapes from^iis confinement 
as a full fiedged and bold mosquito, and 
soars away In search of food and pleasure.

The Bachelors ot the Country. 


A prominent New Yerk Sunday paper 
is publishing descriptive sketches of prom- 
inent bachelors in the leading cities. It is 
wrong to confide these interesting pen-pic- 
tures of masculine singularity to the cities. 
Give the country a chance. Here are a few 
sketches of bachelors in the country which

Beth Stringer is a bachelor, divorced by 
an Indiana court. He is thirty-eight 
years old in his stocking feet, and so much 
addicted to horses that he is in jail half the 
time. I copy a description of him taken 
from a handbill I found, which was 
headed " ilorse Stolen !— Fifty Dollars Re

Tony Blinkers Is a fat jolly old bach, of 
Bungtown, weighing about three hundred 
pounds beer measure. A "fat take " for 
somebody. Tony is rich, and several 
scheming widows have tried to get around 
him, but you see it is so far a round ! He is 
a great feeder. When asked what science 
he considered it most essential for a woman 
to study, he replied, " science of cookery." 
He eats fourteen times a day, and as to his 
hcJtnts, they are necessarily loose as well as 
large. ' 

Tom Phoolorlc is a very young bachelor, 
who sports a dyed moustache, and &ncies 
the girls are all dying about it. He loafis 
about the tavern, while his old father is 
pounding out a living for him in his 
blachsmith shop. He speaks with disdain 
of "them country fellers" who work 
about farms, and who dont live in the " vil- 
lage," and he is an a'ry young bachelor 
toward the country girls who come in to a 
Bungtown ball. Tt)m isn't much of a 
catch for any sensible woman, nor are 
any of the Phoolorlc family, as a general 

Jeff. Rogers is sixty -eight, and excessive- 
ly unmarried. He was so from a boy. 
His mother thought that he would outgrow 
it, but he never has. She says : " I don't 
know where on alrth he ever got it. Not 
f>om me, I'me sure for fus father was my 
fourth husband." He lives by himself, his 
only companion being an old tom cat that 
he 18 trying to rear in the way he should 
go. He does his own washing and mend- 
ing ; otherwise he is a good neighbor, a 
kind member of the School Board, an af- 
fectionate politician, a devoted euchre 
player, a fervent bUlLardist, a pains taking 
quoit pitcher, and never neglects his grog. 


Bill Simpklns is the oldest bachelor in 
Mud Hollar, being one hundred and eleven 
years of age. His teeth are gone, and Bill 
IS rapidly going after them. He is well off 
— probably better ofl' than any where else. 
He has had several ofl'ers of marriage, but 
declined them all. He says he don't be- 
lieve in early marriages. Besides, he don't 
want to leave his mother. 

Pete Miggins is a spruce bachelor of 
thirty, or toirty-fivc, or forty eight, or 
thereabouts. He is always scrupulously 
dressed in liis shirt sleeves, spectacles and a 
wooden leg. He chews tobacco, but prom-

Jim PlunkiOB keeps the tavern at the 
Hollar. He is a bachelor m the second de- 
gree, his wife being dead. He drives a 
quart of whisky, and drinks about a pair 
of gray mares every day. He is gray ex- 
cept the top of his head, and that is red 
and shiny. He likes to take the women 
around— ne took his old mother around to 
the poor-house the other day. 

Ike Cann was bom a bachelor— his fa- 
ther being a bachelor before him. So Ike 
wasn't to blame for it. He drives the fast 
est horse in town, in a butcher's cart ; has 
had the mumps twice, and reads a good 
runnmg hand as tar as fractions. He has 
made several attempts to marry, but, as he 
says, " though Ike Cann do some things, 
Ike can't do that" 


Silas Loam, better known as " Old Slle." 

Is a bachelor of seventy-four summers. He 

is blind in one eye, and at the time I saw 

I him the othei eye bad gone to the wash. 

I asked him how much he was worth. He 
replied, " Not much, I reckon, at my age." 
He is a little shy of the ladies as he had an 
innocent and confiding brother of ninety- 
two winters (and very little spring) in- 
veigled by a promise ot marriage, result- 
ing in his filling an early grave. 

Johnny Phlllup, called for short, Johnny

C'iin. a 3iame b« SSfrned Twice 

A very interesting will case is now going 
on in "Ma.ssachueetts. Miss Robinson 
claims, under a bequest, the property of 
her aunt. Miss Howland, valued at several 
huiidred thousand dollars, and produces a 
will, and a subsequent declaration confirm 
ing and explaining the will. This declara- 
tion bears signatures exactly similar to the 
will, and the defence claim tliat they were 
traced from the undoulited signature to the 
will, aud that they are too exactly like that 
signature to be genuine. This is the sworn 
opinion of several experts. Some of them 
testify to having discovered signs that the 
doubtful signatures were first written with 
lead pencil and afterwards with pen and 
ink. Professor Agassiz swears that he is 
unable to delect such signs with a micro- 
scope ; other experts testify that such close 
resemblances between signatures of the 
same person written at dlilerent times are 
not impossible or navel, and that it is pre- 
cisely in such a cramped hand-writing as 
Miss Howland's that they are lo be looked 
for. Professor Pierce was called in as au- 
thority upon the doctrine of chances. He 

" In the case of Sylvia Ann Howland, 
this phenemenou — the exact coincidence of 
signatures — could only occur once in the 
number of times expressed in the thirtieth 
power of five or more— exactly, it is once 
in two thousand six hundred and sixty-six 
millions of millions of millions of times or 
2,666,0000,000,000,000,000. This number 
far transcends human experience. So vast 
an improbability is practically an impossi- 
bility. Such evanescent shadows of pro- 
bability cannot belong to an actual life. 
They are unimaginably less than the least 
things which the law cares not for. The 
coincidence which is presented to us in this 
case cannot therefore be regarded as having 
occurred in the ordinary course ot signing 
a name. Under a solemn sense of the re- 
sponsibility involved in the assertion, I de- 
clare that the coincidence which has here 
occurred must have had its origin In an in 
lention to produce it." 

This view is strengthened by the fact 
that the signatures to the will and to the 
declaration were not written on ruled lines, 
which makes an exact coincidence still 
more improbable. 

A minor, but important question related 
to the comparative excellence of the Globe 
and Voigtlander lenses. The principal ex- 
pert on one side used one, the expert on 
the other side used the other. 

A Leaf of History. 

Pollard, the Southern historian, gives 
the following account of the manner by 
which General McClellan became aware of 
the intended movements of Gteneral Lee. 
When he moved to Boonsborough and Ha- 
gerstown, to await Jackson's operations, 
there curiously fell into his hands a 
cony of the order which General Lee had 
prepared at Frederick, detailing, with ex- 
actitude, the proposed movements of the 
several portions of his army. The paper 
had been conveyed lo General D. H. Hill, 
who, from some cause of dissatisfaction, 
and in a characteristic fit of impatience, 
tossed it to the ground, and, lying there 
forgotten, was picked up by a soldier of 
the Federal army and forwarded at once 
to McClellan, who thus became possessed 
of the exact detail of his adversary's plan 
of operations. 

— Mr. Weber, one of the samns of Zu- 
rich, Switzerland recently examined the 
stomachs of a number of moles caught in 
different localities, but failed to discover 
therein the slightest vestage of plants or 
roots ; whereas they were filled by the re- 
mains of earth worms. He shut up sever- 
al of these animals in a box containing 
earth and sod with growing grass and a 
smaller case of grub or earth worms. In 
nine days two moles devoured 341 white 
worms, 193 earth worms, 25 caterpillars, 
aud a dead mouse. Fed with a mixed diet 
of raw meat and vegetables, the moles ate 
the meat and left the plants; and when 
vegetables exclusively were dealt out to 
them, in twenty-foiu: hours ,both died of

Tisit to a Pork-PackiBK Honte. 

In his very readable article on Cincin 
nati, published in the Atlantic Monthly, 
James Parton gives tlie following account 
of a visit to one of the great pork-packing 
establishments of that city — 

Every one thinks of pork in connection 
with Cincinnati. In " The Banner Slaugh- 
ter and Pork- Packing House," vrliicb con- 
tains all the improved apparatwa, hogs 
weighing five or six hundred pounds arc 
killed, scraped, dressed, cut up, sailed, and 
packed in a barrel, in twenty seconds, on 
an average ; and at this rate the work is 
done, ten hours a day, during the season of 
four months. 

It is a large, clean, new brick building, 
with extensive yards adjoining it, filled 
with hogs from the forests and farms of 
Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. From these 
yards to the third story of the house there 
is an inclined plane, up which a procession 
of animals march slowly lo their doom 
from morning until evening. Here is the 
first economy. The thing lo be done is to 
transfer the pigs from those yards to the 
basement of the building, and on the way 
convert them into salt pork. They walk 
to the scene of the massacre at the top of 
the building, and the descent to the cellar 
accomplishes itself by the natural law 
which causes every thing to seek the centei 
of the earth. Arrived at the summit, the 
fifteen foremost find themselves " in a tight 
place" — squeezed into a pen in which they 
must remain standing from lack of room to 
lie down. There are two of these pens, 
and two pen men, so that the moment one 
is empty there is another ready filled, and 
the work thus goes on without interrup- 
tion. The fifteen animals which stand 
compressed, with their Leads thrust up- 
ward, awaiting the stroke of fate, express 
their emotions in the language natural to 
them, and the noise is great. The execu- 
tioner, armed with a long-handled, slender 
hammer, and sitting astride of the fence, 
gives to each of these yelling creatures his 
quietus by a blow upon the head. The pig 
does not fall when he is struck ; he cannot ; 
he only stares and becomes silent. When 
silence within the pen announces the sur- 
render of its ocrupants, a door is open- 
ed, and the oenselcss pigs are laid ia a row 
up an inclined plane, at the bottom of 
which is a long trough of hot water. 

One of the artists, called " the sticker," 
now appears, provided with a long, thin, 
pointea knife, and approaches the pig near 
est the steaming trough, gently Ufts its fore 
leg, and gives it one easy, delicate, graceful 
thrust in tic throat Along the trough, on 
each side of it, is a row of men, each with 
an instrument in his hand, waiting to be- 
gin ; and apart from them stands the head 
scalder, who ranks stcond in the corps, 
having the task of all the greatest difficulty 
to perform Scald a pig ten seconds too 
long, or in water twenty degrees too hot, 
aud he comes out as red as a lobster ; let 
the water be loo cool, or keep the animal in 
it too short a time, and the labor of scrap- 
ing it is trebled. Into the hot water the 
hogs are soused at intervals of twenty sec- 
onds, and the ecalder elands, watching the 
clock and occasionally trying the tempera- 
ture of the water witli his finger, or the ad 
herence of the hair of the creatuie first to 
bo handled. "Number one," he says at 
length. By a machine- for the purpose 
number one is turned over on a long, de- 
clining table, where he lies smoking. At 
the same time two men pull out his valua- 
ble bristles and put them in a barrel, and 
two other men scrape one side of him with 
scrapers. In a few seconds these turn him 
over and pass him on to two other scrap- 
ers, who ecrape the other side, and then 
slide him along to four other men, who trim 
and finisii him, leaving not a hair on his 
s<"tft and quivering body. Then he falls 
into the hands of two "gamblemen," who 
insert a stick to keep the hind legs apart, 
and, by the aid of a machine, Lang him up 
with his head downward. Next, the am 
mal is consigned to the greatest artist of 
all, who periorms the operation so much in 
favor among the nobility of Japan This 
artist, weregrct l«9»y,\)UlwiU laotfconce&l 
from a loo tastidious public, is called " the 
gutter." One long, swift cut down the 
whole length of the body, two or three 
rapid in-and-out cuts in the inside, and the 
entire respiratory and digsstive apparatus 
lies smokiLg upon a table, under the hands 
of men who are removing from it the ma- 
terial for lard. This operation, here per- 
formed in twenty seconds, and which is 
frequently done by the saaie man fifieeu 
hundred times a day, lakes an ordinary 
butcher ten minutes. This man earns six 
dollars and a half a day, while no one else 
receives more than lour ; and if he is ab- 
sent from his post, his substitute, who has 
seen the thing done for years, can only 
perform it one-fifth as fast, and the 
day's work of the house is reduced to one- 
fifth of its ordinary pnxluction. 

The long room, in which the creatures 
are put to death, £culded and japanned, 
presents, as may be imagined, a most hor- 
rible scene of massacre and blood— of steam- 
ing water, and flabby, caked, quivering 
hogs — of men in oilskin suits, all shining 
with wet and grease. The rest of the es- 
tablishment is perfectly clean and agree- 
able. The moment the body of the animal 
Is emptied, a boy inundates it with a hose, 
and then another boy pushes il along the 
wire from which il hangs on a wheel, and 
takes it to its plact; in the coohng room, 
where it hangs all night. This cooling 
is a curious spectacle. It contains two 
regiments of suspended hogs, arranged in 
long, regular rows— one regiment the re- 
sult of to day's operations, the other of 

The cutting up of these huge carcasses 
is accomplished with the same easy and 
wonderful rapidity. The first that we 
chanced to see cut to pieces was an enor- 
mous fellow of six hundred pounds, and it 
was done in just one-third of a minute. 
Two men tumbled him over upon a wagon, 
wheeled him to the scales, where his weight 
was instantly ascertained aud recorded. 
Near by was the cutting table, upon which 
he was immediately flopped. "Two simul- 
taneous blows with a cleaver severed his 
head and his hind quarters from the tmnk, 
and the subdivibion of these was accom- 
plished by three or four cuts with the same 
instrument. Near the table are the open 
mouths of as many large woodsn pipes as 
there are kinds of pieces in a hog, and 
these lead to the various apartments be- 
low, where the several pieces arc further 
dealt with. Gently down the<r well- 
greased pipe slip the hams to the smoking 
department ; away glide the sailing pieces 
to the cellar ; the lard-leaves slide softly 
down to the trying-room ; the trimmings 
of the hams vanish silently d<iwn their 
pipes to the sausage- room ; the tongue, the 
feet, and every atom of flesh start on their 
journey to the places where they are want- 
ed ; and thus, in the twenty seconds, the 
six-hundred-pounder has been cut to pieces 
and distributed all over the extensive 

The deliver} of three finished hogs a 
minute requires the following force of men : 
two pen-men, one knocker-down, one 
sticker, two bristle-snatchers, four scrapers, 
six shavers, (who remove the hair from 
parts not reached by the scrapers,) two 
gamble men, one gutter, one hose-boy, one 
slide- boy, one splitter, (who fastens the 
animal open to facilitate cooling,) two at- 
tendants upon the cutters, one weigher 
two cleaver men, four knife-men, one ham- 
trimmer, one shoulder-trimmer, one packer, 
six ham-salters, one weigher and brander, 
one lard -man, one book-keeper, seven por- 
ters and laborers — in all, fifty men. The 
system, therefore, enables one man to con- 
vert into pork, thirty hogs a day. The 
proprietors of these packing-houses pay 
the owners of tne animals sUty cents each 
for the privilege of killing them, and de- 
rive their profits from the refuse. The 
bristles of a hog are worth seventeen cents, 
his tongue five cents,— the hair and the fat 
of the intestines pay the entire cost cf kill- 
ing, dressing and packing.

Arctic adventure, notwithstanding its 
grim monotony, seems lo be the only kind 
ol travel of which neither tulventurera 
nor readers ^\cary. The same men who 
have already dared tne " pack" and the 
iceberg, the sunless dark and cruel cold, 
are always tasclnated by the scene of their 
perils and suUerings, and return to it, if 
possible, once and again. Perhaps it is 
that there is an attraction for resolute 
spirits in solitudes which only a few— and 
olten none— of their fellow-creatures have 
visited before , but it is certainly curious 
that so many expeditions should have been 
un'lertaken, not only voluntarily, but en- 
thusiastically, to so desolate and arid a 
region. While any hope of finding a prac- 
ticable north-west passage existed, any 
possibility of their being th^ first to bear 
their country's Hag athwart the North, and 
to part the waters of the Pacitic at its head 
with their patient keel, one could Imagine 
the charm of such an enterprise ; but now 
that the feasibility ol penetrating the world 
in that direction has been utterly disproved 
it is curious indeed, that the North Pole 
should have almost the same attraction for 
many hardy and intelligent men as it has 
for needles. 

With regard to the leaders of such ex- 
peditlcvnB, who thoitmgWy underatand the 
scientific objects to be attained, and reap 
their reward in attaining them ; who call 
gigantic clltls, and capes, and bays by their 
own names, it is not so strange But how 
the rank and file can be so easily induced 
to accompany their captains, and fight 
against such terrible Iws for a cause of 
which they know nothing, is really re- 
markable. Science. Indeea, may in this 
case boast of as faith fhl and salf-abnegatlve 
votariis as Superstition herself. She has 
only, it seems, to exhibit a''unlfllar mag- 
netometer," a " Wurdeman compass," and 
a lew box and pocket chronometers, and 
Half the able-bodied seamen in New York 
or Liverpool are prepared to plant her 

standard on the uttermost Ice-fields of the 
North. The " reflecting circle," which is 
also included in her outfit, finds no paral- 
lel in fA^w; with an unquestioning obedi- 
ence, they cheerfully set forth to do her 
unknown behests, and only too often perish 
ia accomplishing them. 

What would appear lo be a discourage- 
mtiul itsell amounting to repal?ion, is the 
necessity of passing the long arctic night 
before anything can be done at all : the 
invariable procedure being to set oni in 
autumn, push northwards as fcir as the ice- 
pack will permit, and then go into winter 
quarters, in preparation for the only time 
for action, the brief arctic spring. It is 
indeed a strange and dreadful sort of en- 
terprise, this invasion of King Winter's 
proper realm, and strange Is tbe panoply 
employed. The ship, however small, must 
needs be armor- plated at the bows, sheathed 
with thick planking, and crossed with 
heavy beams, for warfare with the solid 
sea— I. e. the " pack " through which it 
must be pushed, and not those slow-mov- 
ing, pale-green mountains, with their heads 
above the mast, to strike against which is 
instant destruction. The store of pro- 
visions, too, which are of an unusual kind, 
ia immense, since no one knows whether 
the voyage will last for one year, or for two 
or three; nay, whether those uprisen 
waves, made rigid ere their anger can b« 
bpent, as knights of old by magician's evil 
spell, may not forbid escape and keep them 
Winter's prisoners for life. It ia essential, 
during that long depressing night which 
knows no dawn, that no creature-comfort 
shall at least be wanting, and therefore the 
items of supply, even of the humblest ex- 
peditions of this nature, read more like 
ihosfi of a fashionable pic-nlc partv, than 
the provision-list of a schooner, "f he ship 
UiiUed Staia, in which Dr. Hayes sailed 
from Boston, in July 1S60, to ascertain for 
certain the existence of an Open Polar 
tiea, was a vessel of this kind. His crew 
consisted of bnt fourteen men, all told, and 
he had only one scientific associate among 
them, Mr. Bonntag, fated to leave his 
bones in that inhospitable clime. This 
little party was, however, as 1 have hinted, 
well "found " in all things necessary, and, 
indeed, they had rather an embarrassment 
of such riches. The ship was so loaded, 
that "standing in the gangway, you could 
at any time lean over the monkey- rail, and 
toucn the sea with your fingers." During 
some " rough liandling" in the strait called 
Davis'— but which might be called any- 
body's who has ever experienced it — the 
captain's cabin (six feet by ten) was fio<xi- 
ed a dozen times a day, and the sailors 
were literally drowned out of the forecaa- 
tla. Yet this was but as summer-yachting 
ip the Solent, lo their subsec^uent rubs 
with icebergs. For daye, the Greenland 
fog concealed these giant foes, but at last it 
lifted, and berg after ber^ burst into view, 
" like castles in a fairy taie." 

The sudden change to sunlight, and what 
it showed, was something marvelous. "The 
bergs had wholly lost their chilly aspect, 
and glittering in the blaze of the brilliant 
heavens, seemed, in the distance, like 
inasses of burnished metal or solid flame. 
Kearer at hand, they were huge blocka ol 
Parian marble, Inlaltjl with mammoth gems 
of pearl and opal ; one in particular, ex- 
hibited the oerfection of the grand. Its 
torm was not nnlike tbat ot the Oolifieam, 

and it lay so far away that half ita height 
waa buried beneath the line of 
blood-red waters. The sun, slowly roll- 
ing along the horizon, passed behind it, 
and it seemed as If the old Roman ruin 
had suddenly taken fire. In the shadows 
of the bergs, the water was a rich green, 
and nothing could be more soft and tender 
than the gradations of color made by the 
sea, shoaling on the sloping tongue of a 
berg close beside us. The tint increased 
in intensity where the ice overhung the 
water, and a deep cavern, near by, exhibit- 
ed the solid color of the malachite, mingled 
vrith the transparency of the emerald; 
while, in strange contrast, a broad streak 
of cobalt blue ran diagonally through its 
body." These beautiful miracles of nature 
are sometimes of an incredible size. In 
Tcpsnissak Bay there was one which had 
been gronndcil, the natives said, for two 
vears, and which, being almost square-sided 
above the sea, must have borne the same 
shape beneath it, so that its contents could 
be approximated to , the wall which faced 
thediore was more than three hundred 
feet high, and a tiuarter of a mile long, so 
that Dr. Hayes estimated it to weigh some 
thing like two thousand millions ol tons. 
It had stranded in a depth of half a nule. 

Once only, the well-steered vessel fell 
foul of one of these floating monsters. 
"The schooner struck on the starboard 
quarter, and the shock, slight though it 
was, disengaged some fragments of ice thai 
were large enough to have crushed the ves- 
sel, had they struck her, and also many Ut- 
tlo lumps which rattled about us— but, for- 
tunately, no person was hit. The «|uarter- 
deck was quickly cleared, and all hands, 
crowding forward, anxiously watched the 
boat. The berg now began lo revolve, and 
was settling slowly over us; the little 
lumps fell thicker and faster upon the after- 
deck, and the forecaello waa the only place 
where there was the least chance of safely. 
At length, the berg itself saved us from de- 
struction , an immense mass broke oft from 
that part which was beneath the surface 
of the sea, and this, a dozen times larger 
than the schooner, came rushing up with- 
in a lew yarelfi of us, sending a vast volume 
of foam and water flying from its sides. 
This rupture arrested the revolution, and 
the berg began to settle in the opposite di 
rection. And now came another daiiger 
A long tongue was protruding immediate- 
ly underneath the schooner ; already, the 
keel was slipping and grinding upon it, 
and it seemea probable tnat we should be 
knocked up into the air like a football, or 
at least capsized." But once more the berg 
itself came to their relief, for ita opposite 
side began to split, piece by piece, and sent 
tho huge mass revolving bacx again. The 
reports tollowed in such quick succession 
that " the whole air seemed a reservoir of 
Irighllul sound," but the hard words 
broke no bones, and the Utile schooner es- 
caped from its terrible foe—" still rocking 
and rolling like a thing of life," and emit- 
ing great cascades from its split sides into 
the foaming sea— with life, though without 
a mainboom. For five hours this Titan 
tumbling and crashing continued, and then 
from the mass " a piece about a mile long, 
and a hundred feet high, came oil, with a 
report which could not have been exceed- 
ed by a thousand pieces of artillery simul- 
taneously discharged," which concluded 
the display (as it well might), except that 
that the two fragments kept wallowing in 
the sea for hours afterwards. 

These iceberg troubles assailed our voy- 
agers in Baflln's Bay; but when tHfey 
reached Smith's Sound, and endeavored 
to make their way so far as Cape Hather 
ton, intending there to winter, came the 
worse dangers of the pack-ice. Owing to 
tlie great audacity of its captain, the little 
Bchoemer was actually beset in mid chan- 
nel. The Ice came so rapidly down the 
Sound that it nipped and held the ship. 
The dreadful change from comparatively 
open water to " pack" was marvellously 
sudden. The scene around us was aa im- 
posiag as it was marxelloua. Except the 
earthquake and volcano, there is not in 
nature an exhibition ot force comparable 
with that of the Ice-fielda of the Arctic acas. 
They close together, when driven by the 
wind or by currents against the land or 
other resisting object, with the pressure of 
millions of moving tons, and the crash, 
and noise, and confusion arc truly terrific. 
We were now in the midst of one of the 
most thrilling of these exhibitions of polar 
dynamics, and we became uncomfortably 
conscious that the schooner was to become 
a sort of dynamometer. Vast ridges were 
thrown up wherever the floes came to- 
gether, to be submerged again when the 
pressure was exerted in a oother quarter ; 
and over the sea aroun 1 us these pulsating 
lines ot uplift, which in some cases reached 
an altitude of sixty feet — higher than our 
mast-head— told of the strength and power 
of the enemy which was threatening us. 
At length the ice actually touched the 
schooner, and as if with the elevating 
power of a thousand jack-screws, we found 
ourselves going up into the air. Thus in- 
voluntary exdted, they remained for a 
very anxious eight hours ; but fortunately, 
the monster floes changed their course lo 
the westward, and causing the one upon 
which the schooner hung to revolve, set 
the United States free, though sorely dam- 
aged , the hold filled with water, the rud- 
der split, the sternpost started, and the 
whole ship rendered notjonly longer no Ice- 
proof but unse^worthy. 

With extreme diflacully, they got Into a 
bay. they christened Port Foulke (alter the 
chief promoter of the expe<litlon) and 
there determined lo winter. Everybody 
is acquainted with the manner of taking 
things snug in an Arctic harbor : the roof- 
ing in of the deck ; the clearing out ot the 
hold (as being the warmest place for the 
men lo live in) . and the conveying {of the 
cargo on shore. The peculiarity ol the 
present case was the extraordinary number 
of live-stock in the bhape of some Es 
quimaux do,^s, there were no less than 
thirty of these magnificent ■« ild beasts on 
board (purchased at a great price — on ac- 
count of a canine disease then prevalent, 
which made them scarce — at various na- 
tive stations along the coast"), and It may 
be imagined how pleasant it|wa8 lo house 
them in the snow- wall built round the ship, 
and get their room instead of their compa- 
The expedition thus possessed no less 


than three first rate " teams." Dr. Hayes 
himself had what he justly entitles " a re- 
spectable turn out" — twelve dogs and a 
fine sledge. The animals are in most ex- 
cellent condition, every one of them strong 
and healthy ; and they are very fleet. 
They whirl my Greenl^d sledge over the 
Ice with a celerity not calculated for weak 
nerves. I have acttudly ridden behind 
them over sixteen measured miles in twen- 
ty-eight minutes : and without stopping to 
blow the team, have relumed in thirty- 
three. Sontag and I had a race, and I beat 
him by four minutes. I should like to have 
some of my friends of Saratoga and Point 
Breeze up here, to show them a new style 
of speeding animals. Our racers do not 
require any blanketing alter the heats, or 
sponging cither We harness them each 
with a single trace, and tnese traces are of 
a length to suit the driver— the longer the 
better, for they are then not so easily tan- 
gled, the draft of the outside dogs Is more 
direct ; and if the team comes upon thin 
ice, and breaks through, your chance of 
escape fi-om immmersioa are in proportion 
to lh'3ir distance from you. The traces are 
all the sanie length, and hence the dogs run 
side by side, and when property harnessed 
their heads are in a line. My trace* are so 
measured that the shoulders of the dogs are 
just twenty feet from the forward part of 
the runners. The team is guided solely by 
the whip and voice. The strongest clogs 
are placed on the outside, and the whole 
team is swayed lo right and left according 
as the whip falls on the snow to the one 
side or the other, or as it touches the lead- 
ing dogs as It la sure to do if they do not 
obey the gentle hint with sufficient alac- 
rity. The voice aids the whip, but in all 
emergenaes the whip is the only real reli' 

ance. Your control oyer the team ia in 
exact proportion to your skill in the use of 
it. The lash Is about four feel longer than 
tiie traces, and Is tipped .vllh a "cracker" 
of hard sinew, with which a skilful driver 
can draw blood 11 so inclined ; and he can 
touch any one of his animals on any par- 
ticular spot that may suit his purpose. 
Jensen had to-day a young refractory dog 
in the team, and having had his patience 
quite exhausted, he resolved upon extreme 
measures. " You see dat beast ?" said he. 
" I takes a piece out of his car ;" and sure 
enough crack went the whip; the hard 
sinew wound roimd the tip of the ear, and 
nipped it ott as nicely as with a knife." 

It waa absolutely necessary to resort to 
these extreme measures These dogs are 
as wild as wolves, and even more raven- 
ous. They will eat anything, including 
their own harness, if, as usual, made of 
skin. The ferocity with which (hey tear 
their food is something terrible to witness. 
Even the lashings of the sledge are not 
safe from ihem, and have to be buried out 
of sight at camplDg-timc. During one ex- 
pedition, they ate up their drivers' extra 
boolB, together with their fur stock- 
ings, ami even a m«crbchaum pipe which 
happened lo have a seal skin cover. On 
another occasion, one ol their fellows be- 
ing'unablr cither to pull or follow, had to 
bo s'hot As soon as the bullet struck the 
animal, wounding him but slightly, and 
causing him to set up a terrible cry, his 
companions in the team flow upon him, 
and tore him to pieces in an Instant ; and 
those who were lucky enough lo get a 
fragment of him, were tearing his flesh 
from his bones almost before the echo of 
his last howl had died away in the solitude. 
Nay, Dr Hayes, who is very fond and 
proud of them, is obliged to confess that 
" the wretches would eat us up if we gave 
them the least chance. Knox stumoled 
among the pack yesterday while feeding 
them, and had not M'Donald pounced up 
on them on the instant, I believe Ihcy 
would have made a meal of him before he 
could rise " Yet when, as happened, these 
animals were all attacked by the unknown 
disease above alluded to, our author be- 
wailed their loss with reason, for without 
them Arctic exploration is almost impossi- 
ble. The symptoms were something akin 
to hydrophobia, and it may be imagined 
what those dogs did under such aggrava- 
ting circumstances. 

Life on board went on as usual in those 
latitudes , every effort was made to be jolly 
notwithslandiug the darknc^ss and the cola, 
every man's birthday was kept , every fes- 
tival of the church was honored with a 
banquet; the Port Foulke Weekly News 
was started ; and, thanks to the general 
cheerfXilness, Dr. Hayes's benignant rule, 
and, above all, to a large stock of pre 
served vegetables, that scourge of Arctic 
travel, scurvy, was wholly avoided. Their 
chief physical trouble was frozen limbs, 
the cure for which was lo place the limb 
in ice-cold water, the temperature of which 
was slowly increased from hour to hour un- 
til the flesh was thawed out ; but it was 
considered lo be a green trick to get frozen, 
and the disaster was generally tept con- 
cealed , just as at home, boys say nothing 
about having had " a spill out hunting. 
Curiously enough, the cold— so used they 
got to it at last— caused them less inconve- 
nience than one or two unexampled and 
indeed inexplicable thaws. In November, 
under the i*ole Star, the temperature once 
went up to thirty-two degrees, causing ev- 
erything to drip, and making our friends 
open not only their eyes, but their win- 
dows ; th»n, as suddenly as it rose, it sunk 
back lo ita normal position of fltleen de- 
grees below zero. Upon Dr. Hayes' sub- 
sequent expedition In tho spring, it Was 
thirty-one degrees below zero in their 
snow- huts where they slept at night, and 
in the open air, at sixty-eight and a half 
below zero, or one hunared and a half de- 
grees below the freezing-point of water. 
Well might Dr. Hayes (who had been out 
with Dr. Kane In the same region) declare 
this to be unexampled in his exjperience ; 
and, indeed, only one traveler, NiveroflT, in 
Siberia, has ever chronicled a lower tem- 

The coming on of winter darkness is no- 
ted in quite a solemn manner. Our author 
knew that that would be the tryhig time 
for his poor fellows. On November 13, 
he writes : " The darkness is not yet quite 
absolute. With some difficulty. 1 can still 
see to read ordinary print at noon." As 
November ended, the last gleam of twilight 
fades, but the stars shine at all hours with 
great brilliancy, and the moon gives some 
relleL From its rising to its selling, it 
shines continually, circling round the hori- 
zon, and running uninterruptedly Its ten 
days' course of brightness, and shining 
with a brilliancy— thanks lo the whiteness 
of the landscape and the general clearness 
of the atmosphere— unknown elsewhere. 
Nothing in nature is more impressive, nay, 
more ghastly, than Arctic scenery under 
this weird aspect. 

The coming of the sun, on the 'ther 
hand, is watched for with eager impatience, 
and hailed with an almost delirious joy by 
these poor prisoners, " bleached m tho 
long-continued lamplight, and colorless as 
potato-sprouts in a dark cellar." Every- 
body haptens, on the day appointed by the 
Nautical Almanac, to the spot he thinks 
will command the best view of the wel- 
come stranger. "We awaiteel the ap- 
proaching moment with much eagerness. 
Presently a ray of light burst through the 
soft mist clouds whicn lay off to the right 
of us opposite the cape, blending them Into 
a purple sea, and glistening upon the sil- 
very sununits of the tall Tcebergs, which 
pierced the vapory cloak, as 11 to catch the 
coming warmth. The ray approached us 
nearer and nearer, the purple sea widened, 
the glittering spires multiplied, as one af- 
ter another they burst in quick succession 
mto the blaze of day , and as this marvel- 
lous change came over the fiice of the sea, 
we felt that the shadow of the cape was 
tho shadow of the night, and that the night 
waa passing away. Soon the dark red 
clifls behind us glowed with a warm color- 
ing, the hills and the mountains stood forth 
in their new robes of resplendent bright- 
ness, and the tumbling waves melted away 
from their angry harshness, and laughed 
in the sunshine ; and now the line of the 
shadow waa in sight. " There it is upon 
the point," cried Jensen. "There it is 
upon the ice-foot," cried Dodge. There at 
our feet lay a sheet of sparkling gems, and 
the sun burst broadly in our faces. Off 
went our caps with a simultaneous Impulse, 
and we hailed this long lost wanderer of 
the heavens with loud demonstrations of 
joy." He had been absent one hundred 
and twenty-six day8,'and the ghastly moon- 
light, and the occasional glares of the Au- 
rora Borealis, had been but poor subeti- 
tues for him. 

And now the time was at hand when 
the great object of the expedition must be 
attempted, if at all. The dogs, save half- 
a-dozen or so, were dead ; and with that 
inadequate remnant it was necessary that 
Dr. Hayes and his men should endeavour 
to work their way across the hummocks of 
Smith's Sound to Grinnell Land. It was 
a terrible journey, and although under- 

Then leaving two of them behind, one be- 
ing dhabled, he pushed on towards the Pole, 
with only a single human companion. 

No such journey was ever laken by mor- 
tal man. It was scarcely probat)lo they 
would return alive; and the other lao had 
orders to wait for them in their wretched 
snow-hole only for five days, and then to 
make haste for 'home*— the schooner, be- 
tween which and themselves nearly five 
hundred miles of rou^h ice already lay. 
Provisions were fast failing them, although 
they had " cached" some at one or two 
places, in preparation for the return-jour- 
ney. Dr. Hayes and Knok (his compan- 
ion ) were indeed "making their last throw !" 
On and on they pushefl, till at last they 
stood upon the shore of that Open Polar 
Soa in search of which they had endured 
such unptrallcled privations. " Standing 
against the dark sky at the north, there 
was seen in dim outline the white sloping 
summit of a noble headland, the most nor 
them known land upon the globe. I judged 
it lo be in latitude Hi deg. 'M inin , or four 
hunderd and fifty miles from the North 
Pole. Nearer another bold cane bUxkI 
forth , and nearer still the headland, for 
which I had been steering my course the 
day before, rose majestically from the sea, 
as if pushing up to the very skies, a lofly 
mountain peak, upon which the winter had 
dropped its diadem of snows. There was 
no laud visible except the coast upon 
which 1 Blood." The sea al their feet was 
a mottled sheet ol white and dark patches, 
decaying ice and water, and in ihe distance 
one unilorm dark blue, betokening ocean. 
Within a month that unknown sea would 
be as free from ice aa Baffin's Bay. 

With his poor battered ship, the task of 
pushing on was utterly hopeless ; but Dr. 
Hayes is satisfied that during three months 
in the year al least, he could navigate a 
steamer (and means, one day, to do it) 
through Smith's Sound and Kennedy Chan- 
nel into the open Polar Sea. Without in 
the least envying his position, we can ap- 
preciate our author's feeUnge as he set up 
his caira, and fixed his flags, in that hither- 
to unvislled solitude. It was with no ordi- 
nary sensations," says he, with pardonable 
pride, "that I contemplate my situation 
with one solitary companion in that hither 
to imtroddeu desert ; while my nearness to 
the earth's axis, the consciousness of stand 
ing upon land far beyond the limits of pre 
vious observation, the reflections which 
crossed my mind respecting the vaist ocean 
which lay spread out before me, the 
thought that thepe ice girdled waters might 
lash the shores of distant islands where 
dwell human beings of an unknown race, 
were circnmstances calculated to Infest tho 
very air with mystery, to deepen the curi- 
osity, and to strengthen the resolutidn to 
preserve in my determination to sail upon 
this sea, and to explore ita furthest limits ; 
and as I recall the struggles which had 
been made to reach this sea— through the 
ice and across the ice— by generations of 
brave men, it seemed as if the spirits of 
these old worthies came to encourage me, 
as their experience had already guided me; 
I felt that I had within my grasp " the

Autumnal Diiiea«es. 

These are chiefly diarrhea, dysenteiy, 
and various grades of fevers from slight 
"creeps" to congestive chills, for fever is 
the reaction of coldness, ijut when there is 
not power enough in the system lo react 
from the cold stage, death la certain, as in 
congestive chill, in which the blood be- 
comes so cold, so thick, and so impure that 
it ceases to circulate, becomes stagnate, 
and the mrchinery of life stops forever. 
Hundreds of thousands die every autumn 
of the three forms of disease mentioned, 
but not one need die, they are avoidable 
dlsoascs, their causes being kno vn and all 
that is required is to bring a very moderate 
amount ot intelligence lo bear in avoiding 
those causes. A baby will avoid putting 
its finger in the candle a second time ; it 
remains only to grown-up stupids to ex- 
pose themselves to the causes of disease 
year after year and thus letklessly imperil 
health and even life Itself. 

The cause of autumnal diseases is an em- 
anation from the surface of the earth in 
those localities whore are found in combi- 
nation heat, moisture and vegetable matter, 
such as leaves, wcod, etc., for the heat of 
eighty degrees combined with moisture in- 
duces decay, and from this decaying eub- 
stance something arises which, if breathed 
or otherwise taken into the system, indu- 
ces the dlsetisc mentioned sooner or later. 

What this emanation is, has hitherto 
been merely a conjecture, because it was 
Impalpable, so thin like air, that the at- 
mosphere which contained it when sub- 
jected to chemical analysis yielded nothing 
beyond the constilucnta of pure air But 
within a year or two it has becfa ascertain- 
ed that if^a quantity of air of a miasmatic 
locality Is bottled up and is conveyed to a 
sleeping apartment, the person who 
breathes it will, in a short time, have more 
or lesa decided symptoms of fiever and 
ague ; and on examining his saliva or the 
inside of his mouth a living, moving thinp 
is clearly visible with imcroscopic aid. 
Observation and experiment have shown 
incontrovortibly that there are two ways 
of escaolng the ill effects of having these 
living things introduced in the system, 
persons must avoid living in localities 
wheie the land is rich, flat and moint, or 
they must drain those lands ; but it is pos- 
sible to live in such places, and have rea- 
sonably good health simply by keeolng in 
the house of mornings, with a brisk "blazing 
fire until breakfast is eaten, and take supper 
at sundown, because it has been found that 
theeo emanations are more poisonous at 
simnse and sunset, and that If the stomach 
is excited to action by the process of di- 
gestion the emanation is rendered innocu- 
ous, perhaps from tho fact, in part, that 
the juices of the stomach at the time of 
digestion are of a character to destroy the 
life of these living things , but the fact re- 
mains the same whether this supposition is 
true or not. 

A practical use may be made of this sub- 
ject in the light of these facta, in reference 
to breathing night air. Very many advo- 
cate the raising of windows in a sleeping 
apartment summer and winter all the year 
round ; the theory seems a good one, but 
experience will not corroberate it. Per 
sons living on water courses where the 
"bottom lands," as they are called, are 
rich, luxuriant, Eind damp will save health 
and life itself by keeping all outside doors 
and windows opening into chambers closed 
from sundown lo suurlso during the three 
autumnal months, in fever and ague or in- 
termittent lociUities.— jHa5'« Journal of

Thc following beautiful tribute to the 
followers of the " stick and rule," is from 
the pen of B. F. Taylor, of the Chicago 
Evening Journal. 

The printer is the adjutant ot thought, 
and this explains the mystery of the won- 
derful word that can kindle a hope aa no 
song can, that can warm a heart as no 
hope can, that word "we" with hand-in 
hand warmth in it— for the author and 
printers are engineers together. Engi- 
neers indeed ! When the Coreicau bom- 
barded Cadiz, at the distance of five miles, 
it was deemed the very triumph of engi- 
neering. But what is that range to this, 
whereby they bombaid tho ages yet to be V 

There at the " case" he stands and mar 
shals into line the forces armed with truth, 
clothed in immortality and English. And 
what can be nobler than the equipment of 
a thought in sterling Saxon- Saxon with 
n spear or shield therein, and that commis- 
sioning it when we are doad, ^o move 
gr§njjly on to " the latest syllabic of re- 
corded time." This is to win a victory 
from death, for this has n* dying in it. 

The printer is called a laborer, and the 
office he performs is toll. Oh, it is not 
work, but a sublime life he Is performing, 
when he thus cites the engine that is to 
fling a worded truth in grander curve than 
missile e'er before described ; fling it into 
the bosom of an age. He throws oft' his 
coal indeed, but we wonder the rather that 
he does not put his shoes from oft' his feet, 
for the place where he stands is ho^y 

A little song was uttered somewhere 
long ago; it wandered through ihe twi- 
light feebler than a star ; it died upon the 
ear. But the printer takes it up where it 
was lying there in the silence like a 
wounded bird, and he sends it forth from 
tho ark that had preserved it, and it flies 
on into the future with the olive branch of 
peace, and around the world with melo- 
dy, like the dawning of a spring morn- 

*'Cliawln' Gum.*" 

As the practice of '• chawin' gum " is in 
dulgcd in by many of our ladies, and oc 
caslonally by tho male gender, wo append 
for their especial information the following 
brief but interesting dissertation on the 
habit by " Kringle " of the Schenectady 

As to ware and how gum chawin' fUst 
originated history don't 8a,but then i shood 
Judg that it was fust intrewduced to the 
publick thru the mejum of a rooral gurl 
boo kontracted theldisordcr frum the kows. 
It looks ruther plesent and comfortable 
like to see a kow quietly chewin ov hur 
kud on a Gtill da, and a woming loox just 
at the same reckreashen. gum is made ov 
diflerent ingredients and is put up in pen- 
ny packages. Ita a very cheap reckrea- 
shen bekause a sent's worth will last, pro- 
vidin' it ain't transferable, a munth, and a 

f;ood old fashioned hemlock wad will last 
onger than an ordinary brace ov jaws. 
Ware kin a more interestin site l:>e wit- 
nessed than to see a groop ov blushin vir- 
gins diakussin the favnt subjeck (the un- 
married male populasbun) and chawin 
gum ? Eliza, my wife, chaws gum. — The 
childera, too, have caught the infeckshun, 
and sugar coated gum is a konspikuous ar- 
ticle on my market book. Seeled around 
mi domestic cirkle engaged it mi littery 
mi wife scttin direckly opposite rcadin tho 
Noo York ledger, and sweetly chawin 
while okkashunally she removes her kud, 
and fondly gazes onto it study in the pekool- 
yer build ov her back teeth, i am happy. 
The children beleevin variety is the spice 
ov life change kuds all around okkashun- 

EllZy, when she retires sticks her gum 
on the bed bord of our kouch. Its a time 
honored practiss ov hurs. On several ok- 
kashuus i hev diskuvered that mi auburn 
ringlets was fast in the aforesaid kud, and 
then i have inwardly kussed the practiss. 
Wun nite I waited till she snored magnifi- 
sently, and then I made her kud 2 parts ov 
asserfidity to one ov gum, and waited with 
ono eye out ov the bed kloes for results. 
Thare was a demon lack smile precep table 
on mi face az she sputtered and skoured 
hur mouth with her nite kap. I'm eorry 
to sa that okkurrence failed to kure hur ov 
the habit, but i| efieckshually kured me ov 
that style ov pracktikal joax". I woodenl 
like to sa that Elizy pounded me with the 
mop-handle, but then she hit pretty near 
ware she thort I wus rolled under the bed 
klose and I give her credit fur guessing 
painfully korrect. Yes, it failed to kure; 
even now she sits peasefully a chawin.

-The Working Farmer recommends 
sawdust, as bedding for cows and as a mulch 
for trees. 

—About 10,000 W(X)d's reapers and mow-

which employs about 400 men, 

—A stalk of millet over six feet high 
hHS been left at the office of the Herald,

—A Kansas farmer has raised this year 
on 110 acres of land 0,400 bushels of com, 
000 bushels of wheat, and 3,500 bushels of 
potatoes — all of the value of f 5,535. 

—Asparagus is a very healthful article 
of diet, for the reason that it is nutritious, 
easily digested, and contains no properties 
which are injurious to the human organ- 

—In the vicinity of St Louis, Mo., a far- 
mer ia said to have laised 565 bushels of 
Boughton wheat from fotuteen bushels of 
He*xl— a littlo over forty bushels from one. 
This wheat is well spoken ot for rich land. 

—The Ildnois Central, in August, made 
$40,000 clear upon peaches alone. Its fruit 
business is large, and increasing rapidly. 
No road covers so many varieties of cli- 
mate, and nowhere arc they more prompt- 
ly taken advantage of. 

—The great Canada Cheese manulac- 
tWTzd about one year ago at a factory near 
IngcrsoU, is still in a good state of preser- 
vation, and Is suspended on pivots in the 
factor>' so as to be easily swung over for the 
gratification of visitors. Thirty five tuiis 
of milk were uslhI in manufacturing this 
cheese, which weighs 7,000 poimds. 

—Mr. Jeremiah Duncan, near Paris, Ky., 
recently sold from his herd of Short-Horns 
ten bulls, and 39 ciws, heifers and young 
calves. The prices were quite high — 
ll.'.'lOand 11,275 being the highest, while 
but a single animal sold for less than |1(K). 
The list of prices as published, foots up 
114,306 or an average ot $290.53 for each 
animal sold. 

— For reclaiming black land that has be- 
come stifl" and waxy by improper farming, 
(for it will not become so by proper usage), 
use 50 to 75 bushels of leached ashes per 
acre, or 16 to 25 bushels unleached— the 
leached ashes contains no potash, and 
can have little else than a mechanical ef- 
fect, to loosen and mellow the soil when 
thoroughly mixed. 

—Mr. B. F. Cutter, of Pelham, N. H., 
tells a story in the Mirror and Farmer, o{ a 
hog, which though well fed and apparent- 
ly health, " did not grow one atom.'' Boon 
Jd'ter feeding him one day, the owner hap- 
pened to Iftok into his pen, and found the 
trough oompletely filled with rats, which 
at once accounted for the lean condition of 
his starving hog. 

—The Sacremento Bee asserts that m 
the Alameda and Santa Clara valleys the 
farmers have actually been driven by 
ground squirrels from some of their best 
lands ; that their settlements, like that of 
the prairie-dog extend for miles, each bur- 
row sbclteiing from one to six inmates ; 
and that it would hardly be an exaggera-

lIo^T to Take Impressions 


The advantage of being able to take ac- 
curate impressions of plants without much 
labor need not be pointed out to those who 
can appreciate what ia useful. It is not 
brougnt forward ab a subsUtutlon for dried 
specimens, where these can be obtained 
and attended to ; but as being less cumber- 
some it deserves notice, as a means of re- 
freshing the memory, in very many instan- 
ces, in a manner equally satisfactory as 
when specimens are employed . It has, fur- 
ther than this, no claim to novelty, but 
simply to usefulness. 

The materials required are fe^v, and these 
not expensive. One pennyworth of lamp- 
blacK and one pennyworth of sweet oU are 
all that will be required besides the paper. 
A large sheet of paper should be provided, 
and this should be prepared by rubbing it 
evenly all over with a piece of flannel 
moistened with the oil ; this must be done 
thoroughly, and when the paper is well 
moistened, but not in a wet state with the 
oil, a small quantity of lampblack should 
be laid evenly over it, also using flannel for 
this part of the operation. If this prepa- 
ration can be made a day before using the 
paper, it will be so mucn the better. The 
next process requires great care. Having 
the prepared sheet in readiness, place on it 
evenl}'' and flatly the plant, flower, or leaf 
of which an impression is required ; then 
place over this a dry sheet of paper, and, 
with a handkerchief or cloth, press firmly 
over every i)art, that it may equally and 
regularly receive the black preparation. 
Tho paper intended to receive the impres- 
sion should now be in readiness, and the 
specimen must be carefully removed and 
placed on it, and great care must be taken 
that its position is not changed ; tnis, too, 
must be again evenly and firmly pressed as 
before, and the impression will be com- 
plete, and must be laid carefully aside to 
become dry. A specimen or two can be 
tried on a spare sheet, in order to ascertain 
whether the blackened sheet Is In a proper 
state of preparation before it is attempted 
to take a very careful impression. This is 
particularly valuable In preserving sketch- 
es of the leaves of rare and valuable plants.

The Cuuard Royal Mail Line has now 
been twenty-seven years in existence. I 
chronicle its great prosperity in the hope 
that our people, particularly those of Phil- 
adelphia, will accept the fact as the best 
argument for the c<immencement of a thor- 
ough competition for that priceless trade 
which should be controlled, as it is mainly 
contributed to, by Americans. The Cun- 
ard Company bought four ships to start 
with, and they are now the owners of 
twculy-four splendid ocean steamers, built 
out of their large profits, after paying 
splendid dividends to the stockholders. As 
a specimen of their prosperity, take the 
present cargo. We have on board two 
hundred and eighteen first-class passengers, 
who pay one hundred and fifty five dollars 
apeice, making a total $33,790 in gold. The 
freight 18 estimated at nearly $10,000. In 
addition, they receive some $9,(X)0 for carry- 
ing the mail (whichjis included in their 
annual subsidy from the British Gk)vem- 
ment). Their expenses are about $15,000 
the single trip— not more. These figtires, 
nearly exact, foot up a very large profit 
for the single trip. It is only necessary to 
add that at least two hundred of our two 
hundred and eighteen passengers are 
Americans, to show whence these gains 
are derived. — From a Forney Letter.

— A singular explosion case is reported 
by the engineers of the Manchester Boiler 
Association. An earthenware bottle of 
about a quart capacity was used, when fhll 
of hot water as a bed warmer. After fill- 
ing it on a previous occasion, the cork was 
tied down with a waxed end. When the 
bottle was next brought into reauisition, 
instead of being emptied of its cold water 
and refilled with hot, it was put all tightly 
corked, into the oven of a kitchen range, 
to be heated up entire. In a short time a 
violent explosion took plaee, the bottle was 
burst and pieces of the oven door were 
thrown into the room with such violenoe

Far restoring hair npon bald head 
(from whatever cause it may have fallen 
out) and forcing a growtii of hair upon 
the face, it luis no eqnal. It will force 
the beard to grow upon the smoothest 
face in from five to eight weeks, or hair 
upon bald heads in from two to thrCP 
month?. A few ignorant practitioners 
ha\ c asserted that there is nothing that 
will force or hasten the growth of the

as thousands of living (fiom 
their own experience) can bear witness. 
But many will say, how are we to distin- 
guish the' genuine from the spurious ? It 
certainly is diflicnlt, as nine-tenths of the 
diflerent ['reparations advertised for tho 
hair and beard are entirely worthless, and 
you may have already thrown away large 
amouii'is ill their purchase. To such we 
would say, try the Repnrator Capilli ; it 
will cost you nothing uiiles.s it fully comes 
up with' our representations. If your 
Druggist <locs not keep it, pend us one

A SERior.i Accident — An aeciiknt of a 
verv nnusual desorip'i.jn happ >neil in t'li^' 
citv yestenlay. On the tressle work which 
supports the "track of tlle^'t, Paul ami Paeitic 
road over t!ic lowlands jnsi beluw the city, is 
a short bridge over which I'ae trains pas-s as 
they arrive in the city or depart therefrom. 
Asa train was approaching the 'jridge yester- 
day, Mr. Patrick .McMahon, who is employed 
by Messrs Cook k Webb, as ticket agent for 
the onmibas line, endeavord to p i>3 around 
the baggage car on jhc railinj,' of the same. 
i Between the car ! nd the inside of the briege 
there is not nom enough f n- a man of o.di- 
rary size to pass. Jn-t as .McMahon stepped 
npon the platform, the baggiige car entered 
the bridge. The result was that he was roll- 
ed between Ihe bri<lge and the car the whole 
length of the latter. As .soon as the car had 
cleared tho bridge he jumped down, n dist- 
ance of i.bout sixteen feet, and was picked 
up by friends wlio took him to a jilace ol 
stafetV. Dr. Miirjihy was called, who made 
a careful c.\':on, but lound that no 
bones had been broken. The most serious 
injury the Doctor found waa that caused by 
the left shoulder blade be;n;r pressed ia. Of 
course ilie suffei-er is liiore or iesi bruised in 
nearlv all parts of the i>o ly, and it is net 
iikelv that he will be out again tor a week or 
itore. U"d he been a largernfian, he wnild 
have been so cruslod uikI mulilate<l by the 
accident tha\ he could not have lived. His 
binall fraim saved him.— /'iwnftr 2d i»«/.

public, as one ftotfle irill ticcom- 
plish more and last lonyer than 
three bolllcs of any other prepara- 

It is recommended and used by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The wonderful results produced 
hif our Sicilian Hair Itenewer 
have indured many to manufac- 
tare preparations for the Hair, 
under various names : and iu 
order to induce the trade and the 
public to purchase their corn- 
pounds, they have resorted to false- 
hoods, btj ' claiminy they were 
former partners, or had some con- 
nection with our 3Ir. Hall, and 
their preparation was similar to 
ours. Do not be deceived by them! 
rurchasc the original: it has 
never been equalled. Our Treatise

IiOa2 AGAm. 

Tlavin-' rcmrncd from the East after a 
tjree months' absence,— the first in ten 
rears,— I desire to express my tlianks to 
those w!;o have so well and faithfully attend- 
el to my interests in my absence. 

During my absence Mr. E. L. W^rigUt 
Ims had er.tirc charge of tlio business and 
mechanical departments of tlie Av.avr,, as 
>w'.l as of the editorial department. I am 
gratified to acknowledge that in all respects 
ho has given entire satisfaction, and has 
jittended to my interests with industry and 

Li. v.- IS D. Dent, Esq , having had charge 
of my law ofiice and hiw business, has been 
prompt in his atteniiou to my business and 
interest, and has ac«juitted himself as an 
able and faithful lawyt-r. To take char;.'c 
of another's law pnutiec for three niunilis 
-.H a very difti( nit underiakiiig, and I am 
tnrpnscii, as well .is gratified at the success 
vilh which Mr Dkxt' has managed my hiw 
busines:*. 1 take pleasure in rocoiumen'liug 
him to the business community as an abh-, 
lailhfal and industrious advocate. 

Mr. Joux Ekkkt having had charge of 
my tenement liouse-, will r.ccept my thanks 
l*jr tliC (althfnl manner in which he has 
attended to my interests in that regiud. 


We piiUibh this iTtek the ticket put In the 
fioid by the ScoU County Democratic Cor- 
vjiuion. V/iLUAM IIiiNuv, of lii:lle IMaine, 
is the nominee for Representative. He is 
our present Judge of Probate and Superin- 
t42adent of Schools. Judge Henry has long 
been a citizen of this county, and is gener- 
ally and well known as a gentleman of 
ability. He has in the past proved himself 
faithful to his friends and f^iithful in the 
discharge of his odicial duties. There is no 
«loubt but he will make a faithful represcn- 
t itive and acquit himself with credit, and 
be faithful to the interest of the people.— 

We are rrjultcd that Stott County has the 

rro.=^pcct of being represented in the House 
by an honest man, instead of a tradi:ig 

Joux Enir.T, our present worthy County 

Treasurer, has agniu received the nomine- 

tion for re-election. Mr. Edert has been a 

citizen of this county since 18jC., and has 

been clectcU County Treasurer four terms, 

and is now faithfully serviiig the people in 

that responsible olliic. During the time he 

Las been County Treasurer, witlier friend 

pr fpc has ever claimed that he has not, in 

C^XTV instance, been Ihilhl'ul and honest .n 

lis oaicc. He has collected onr taxes with- 
out oppression to any one. He has kept 

the public moneys safely- and paid them out 

so that not one dollar has ever been lost. — 

Such aa officer cannot be retained in oflice 

too long. His party, by his re-nominalioc, 

lias said " well done, thou good and faithful 

a^rvant," and the people will give him 

almost a unanimous election. 

Frank McGaADE, formerly of Shakopee, 

row of Jordan, has the nouiinalion for 

llc"-istcr of Deeds, He was formerly well [ the Auditor of Stale, he had audited 

known as ShcriST of this county, and for 

several years piTlormed his ofiicial duties 

faithfully. During tl>c war he served two 

vcars in the army as Lieutenant. Mr. 

ilcGrade's officiul conduct has been well 

fii.'d, and no ofliccr ever stood higher in 

the estimatiiu of lh« people than Wherifif 

Jacob TnoMA.?, our present SheriST, has 
received a renomination. This is treating 
him just as he deserves. The duties of that 
cffice are laborious, and Mr- Thomas has 
bocn diligent and faithful in the discharge 
oT his otBcial duties. Mr. Thomas has given 
satisfaclicn in the past and will undoubtedly 
continue to do so in the future. 

Hon. L. R. Hawkins, of Spring Lake, 
fcas received the nomination for Judge of 
Probate. He represented this county in 
the Legislature ii. 13o8. Alihoug^Ji an old 
citizen, he has not held any county office. 
He is a ijcutleman of fine social qnalilies, a 
trac Democrat of tbe old iichool and a good 

H. 11. Struxk, of Shakopee, has received 
the nominatiot, for Coroner. In Scott 
county this oflice is not of much im]>ortancc, 
but occasionally theie are important duties 

tion to serve the iaiarcst of the people or to 
improve our county finances, but merely 
and solely for the purpose of deceiving the 
people by misrepresenting the 
connection which the Auors holds to our 
county. Vv'e shall, as occasion offers, rc.'er 
to some of the statements of the Spectator 
concerning the sums we have received from 
the county. 

The Spc:lator says we received $700 for 
publishing the tax list. So we did, and this 
sum is just what the law, made b^v ;i Repub- 
lican Legislature, provided we should have. 
The law gives us twenty cents for each 
dcatiipl'ion of lauds and lots coutaiuei in 
the tax list. \Vc pubiisiied ^500 tracts of 
land and town lot^, and tins number at 
twenty cents cuch maizes just $100.00. — 
Ibis is just twice as much as the old law 
would have given us, but just what we were 
entitled to under the new law. The old law 
gave only ten ctuts tor publishing each 
tract in the tax list, but last winter the Re- 
publican Legisluluro, for the benefit of 
Rtpublicau editcre, amended the law so as 
to give twenty cents instead of ten. We 
sec no rea.son why a Democratic p.".per 
should not be bcueUtied by the new law as 
well as Republican p:i[>*'rs. iJut no matter 
how much is paid for the publication of the 
tax list, whether ten cents, as formerly, or 
twenty cents as now, or thirty cent.s, as it 
ought to be, the county loses nothing at all, 
because it is not the county, but the non 
resident speculator a::d others who do not 
pay tht-ir laxe^, thai ha.-i uiliniaU'ly to pay 
for printing the tax list. The county loses 
notliing. The $700 which we received fur 
publishing the tax li.-'t wus paid into the 
county treasury by the purchaser at the lax 
sale and by the owner of the land who re- 
deemed before a sale, for the very purpose 
of paying for advertising the tax list. As 
the county had rcccJve<l that sum from the 
owners of the land and from the purchas^^r 
at the tax sale, it of course was rigiil luai 
it should all be paid to us, anu our county 
losses nothing by its beuig paid over to us. 

But the Spectator .says that tlie County 
Auditor " with immoderate haste, au- 
dited, allowed and issued orders for this 
sum." Jiut the fact is, the tax list was luUy 
published early in May, and we wcri; entitled 
to immediate payment. Rut our worthy 
County Auditor, with unusual delay, ne- 
glected to audit 0U1: bill. Although it was 
his duty to audit our bill immediately, he 
did not do so for three mouths, and not 
until we took an appeal to the Republican 
State Auditor, and he ordered our County 
Auditor to audit our bill and pay us the 
sum ho found due us. Our County Auditor 
then, under the orders of the Republican 
State Auditor, counted the number of tracts 
in the lax list and paid us tweuli" cents for 
each tract in the list, and no more. The 
only fault to find with the county auditor is 
that he neglected for two months to jiay a 
domocralic editor, and delayed to do so 
until orucred by a republican State au'litor 
to do so. 

The Spectator says that wc afterw.trds 
presented the .>ame bill to the county coui- 
luissioners and that ihey also allo\veJ us the 
same amount. Rut the fact is wu did not, 
at any time, present a bill to the commis- 
sioners for printrng the tax list, iind the 
commissioueis did not at any time allow or 
pay us any sum for priuti:ig the tax liaL — 
iiut the county auditor reported to the ebm- 
niissioners the fact that, under the orders of 

bill, and asked their approval of what he done. The commissioners examintd 
into the matter and approved of what the 
auditor had done. We did not present any 
bill to them and they only assented to what 
had l;€eu done. Our only regret i.i that the 
law did not give us thirty cenUi for each 
tract in the tax list instead of twenty. 

The Spectator s?;ys single descriptions of 
lands have been divided into several parcels, 
and thus the number of descriptions iu- 
oreasetl. But such is not the case. The 
same descriptions of land and town lots 
exist in this county now that have existed 
for the last ten years, ami neither the coun- 
ty auditor or the county printer, or any one 
else has changed or has any right to change 
the descriptions contained in the tax list. — 
The tax list is copied from the public records 
and must be copied and printed just as it 
appears in the records. The descri^>tions of 
lands and lots are made and determined by 
the assessors. Every piece of land which 

Etery family in the United States now 

pays upon an average about $200 a year 

for taxc?, to pay the interest on the public 

Th* Spectator says we will receive some ] debt and support of the government. The 

four hundred dollars a year for publishing ; taxes are direct and indir»'ct, and there is 

the proceedinga of the commissioners, at ! no escape from them. The man who rents 

seventy-five cents a folio, and that the a house pays a part of it in his increased 

i Spectator will publish the proceedings for i rent, and in hl;'hcr prices for evervthiiig he 

DUSinCSS j I or ^ <-• 

' one third of what wc are getting. One , eats, drinks and wears, 
third of four hundred dollars is one hundred ! -^. -♦- -^ 

and thirty thriee doUais and a third cents. — I Ono of the Jenkinses, writing of n recent 

' hop at Saratoga, says: "A very pretty girl 

Of course you wouM, Mr. .^'peotalur! for 
that would give yqa more than we would 
receive at seventy-five cents a folio. And 
we are willing to coutract with the commis- 
sioners to their proceedings in the 
Argus a year for less thau that sum, and 
long ago off«»red to make such a contract 
with the county. V>hiic^ we are not v.iliing 
to publish the proceedings of the county 
commiysioaers fur twenty-fiyc cents a folio, 
while the law gives the printer seventy-fi\e 
cents a folio fur all legal publications, "ne 
are willing to publish those proceedings for 
less than one third of four hui:dred dollars a 
year. The law ^jives the printer seventy-five 
cents a folio for all legal publication fitr the 
first Heck. And this is what the Argus 
receives from ])rivate persons. The trouble 
with the i.ipectator is, not that we arc gc • 
tiug too much, but that a Domoeratie papir 
ought not to gel any patronage Iimiu a 
Dciuocratic county. Rut we would i.dvi c 
the Spectator not to over do his falsehoods 
30 much. A sinnll nii.sstatemcnt might 
deceive the people, but the Spectator gulls 
only can swuUow so large a dose.

The IJashionablc part of London, known 
AS Belgravia, is owned by the Marquis of 
Westminster, who has an income of £1,000 
a day. With the ordinary rise in value, 
Lord Belgrave, his grandson, aged twelve, 
will be the richest man in the worll. A 
nice thing to think of. 

A Trafaloak ITeuo, Robert Christie, 
has just died at Alloa, at the age of ninty- 
eight. He was engaged in nearly forty bat- 
tles and skirmishep, and nover received a 
wound ; he retired in 1820 on a pension of 
twenty poiinds, which he received till Lis 

CilAni.ES Djckens writes to a friend in 
Boston: "I notice that about onco in 
every seven years I become the victim of 
a paragraph disease. It breaks out in Eng- 
land, travels to India by the overland 
route, gets to America per Cunard line, 
strikes the base of the Rocky Mountains, 
and, rebounding back to Europe, mostlj' 
perishes on the steppee of Russia from In- 
anition and extreme cold." 

The Southern authoress. Miss Evans is 
described by a correspondent of the New 
Orleans Picayvne as a blonde of thirty, 
with a well developed bust, bmall waist, 
and weighing about one hundred and fif- 
teen pounds, lie continues: "Her hands 
are small and tidy, but they arc not dim- 
pled. There never was a painter, poet, 
musician or any ingenious, industrious or 
useful woman with dimpled hands." 

Mr.a. General Tom Thumc may often 
bo seen promenading Broadway on a fine 
afternoon. Sho goes Just as any other 
lady is supposed to do. Sqe dresaes very 
neatly, wearing a black filk dress and bas- 
que, jocky hat and dark kid gloves. Mrs. 
Stration is never unaccompanied in public. 
When walking by tie side of her attendant, 
she looks like a mere child, and attracts 
little attention, excepting from those who 
happen to recognize her, and rudely stare 
at and notice the goodlooking and well de- 
veloped little lady. 

The Duchess de 3Iouchy, who Lj at- 
tracting attention at Baden-Baden by the 
elegance of her toilettes, was, prior to her 
marriage, the princess Anna Murat. She 
IS cousin to the emperor, and many of our 
fashionable American ladies went to school 
to her mother at Baliimore. She is a blonde 
beauty of decided emhonpinnt, very artless 
and linaflected, and a great pet of Eugenic, 
who tried hard but unsuccessibily to get 
her a husband with royal blood In his veins. 
The duke do Mouchy is one of the richest 
noblemen in France. 

A Story is told about the late ^V. Hope, 
the banker of Amsterdam, that he had 
bought a picture as a Rembradt, and given 
2,000 guineas for it. Finding that it did 
not fit the frame, he, sent for a carpenter 
to ease it a little. Whilst wdtchiug the 
operation, he remarked how wonderfully 
the picture was preserved, considering 
that it was nearly two hundjed years old. 
" That is impossible," said the carpenter. 
" This wood is mahogany, and mahogany 
had not been Introduced into Europe at 
that time." Mr. Hope burnt the picture. 

New Youk letter- writers tell of Horace 
Greeley that, upon the arrival in tliis 
country of Mrs. Yelverton, with whom he 
had been in correspondencis Mr. Greeley 
sent her a note requesting hu Interview, 
and simply signed himself " H. G." No 
answer coming, he wrote again with no 
better success, and in a fit of indignant 
curiosity he jerked his La* on the tack of 
his head and rushed for the Albemarle 
Hotel. The lady was delighted to receive 
the editor of the Trdxune, and mutual ex- 
planations followed. She had mistaken 
the simple initials, " H. G.," for the ligures 
109, and didn't know what to miike of it 
aU. Persons familiar with Mr. Greeley's 
slgxiature can very well understand Low 
such a mistake could occur. 

The f )llowing pen picture of Spurgeon 
is given by a correspondent of a Southern 

Eaper : " Spurgeon is a common looking 
ttle chunk of a man, with a rather large 
heal, higher in front than behind, brown 
hair, straight and not short, blue eyes, 
thick lips large white teeth, course though 
not decided features and face, including up- 

Ser lip, covered with closely trimmed 
eard of light color. His neck is short and 
thick, and he is so round shouldered as to 
look somewhat humpbacked. His arms 
are short and his hands fat and chubby. 
The angle of his face Is bad and its expres- 
sion is neither rcflncd nor intcllectuul. He 
cannot be more than five feet six inches 
high, and weighs at least a hundred and 
sixty pounds. Hia style of ppeaking is 
conversational and perfectly natural ; he 
makes but ibw gestures, and those not 
graceful ; looks directly before him for the 
most part, leaning upon the raiHng of the

— The Boston Pod says; "The reason 
why travelling with ladies costs twice as 
much as with me is, that they commonly 
take twice as much room, waut twice as 
much waiting upon, are twice as fussy, 
and are twice as hard to please. Every 
woman is a sort of double, and when she 
id out with her trunks is twice that figure.

thing else they please."

their wires as fast as enterprise can do it, 
and wherever they open, inaugurate a re- 
duction of rates. 

— A S:iU Lake city letter says : " Polyg- 
amy id not generally practised, but seems 
to be indulged in according to a man's 
means as a rule, though many wealthy 
men in the city have but one wile. In the 
country, one caa.alwsys tell, bv the build 
of the house, how many a man has. If he 
has but one, his house, if one story in 
height, Is nearly square ; should he have 
two, he builds an addition to one end of 
the original house, which is an exact coun 
terpart of if, having an outside door and 
windows like the first, and diflerlng from 
it only In newness of build. In short, he 
ballds such an addition each time that he 
takes to himself a wife, so that frequently 
one may see a half dozen thus growing out 
of each other, and presenting, with an 
array of ftont doors, a singular appear- 
ance. 1 think that over half of the men 
have but one wife ; a great many have tw» 
or three : numbers have from lour to six; 
I and lew have over ten.

Africa. In removing it fYom the vessel to 
the Museum, the animal became greatly 
enraged at the Jarring It was fubjoted to. 
In order to securely remove him ttom the 
box in which ho was placed to his cage, a 
rope was inserted and fastened to hia cJiain, 
But the gorilla seized it and pulled it away 
from several men who grasped It. He got 
It in the cage, untied it from the chain and 
dropped it through a hole. A huge 
wrought iron bar was then inserted, an 
inch and three quarters thick, for the pur- 
pose of bringing out the chain. The go- 
rilla seized the oar, pulled it away from 
two men noted for their muscular strength, 
and then bent the bar double, the two 
ends actually meeting. Ho was finally se- 
cured, however,. His lurious hpwls exci- 
ted all the animtils, women fainted and 
children cried. Au immense chain, with 
resistant force of t-is thousand pounds, is 
attached to him. He is five and a half feet 
high, with an eye like a human being, and 
ft tace more reaembling man than monkey, 
and of color like an elephant. His hand 
is as delicate as a woman's. When irrita- 
I ble he is quieted by a few cloves or nut-

while, if each be perfectly healthy, the 
fact of consanguinity counts for nothing.

Indian Aeentw. 

Tho Louisville Journal has along ai'acle 
on the Indian question, fiom which wo 
mi.kti an extract : 

We had tho pleasure of an hour's oon- 
vorsation, a few days ago, with the foster 
brother of the celebrated Seminole Chief, 
Billy Bowlegs. His reminiscences of tho 
Florida war are exceedingly interesting. 
He was ouo of the moderate party In the 
triljc, tho party friendly to the whites. 
When the tribft finally split upon the tub 
Ject, he was with those who petitioned 
General Zachary Taylor to tiansfer them 
beyond Arkansas. At no time during his 
life had he been hostile to the whites, 
although, of course, ho fought with his 
tribe so long as general warfare was kept 

He says that ho dues not remember a 
single instance In thirty years in which tho 
whites have religiously kept an engage- 
ment with the Indians, lie never has 
known a trcuty which, carried into effect, 
wa^ not Ki^meliow di.slortexl to the preju- 
dice of the Indian. lie has known but one 
or two Indian ugcnta who were honest 
men. The rest are all scoundrels, and in- 
variably cheat tho Indians out of seven- 
eighls ot Ihoir annuities, or of llioir money, 
in trade. He draws a very striking 
piclurw of the payment of annuities ; one 
such scene, lie f-ays, will represt.nt the 

Tha Indian a^^ent makes Lis appearance 
at a certain pomt to distribute tho annui- 
ties. Tho IndiatLS of tho tribe, having been 
previ iusly notiflctl, are present. A young 
warrior, in tho first flush rf manhood, am- 
bitloue, inexperienced, comes up to re- 
ceive, '3AY, ouo hundred and forty dollars, 
which is duo him as the Fon of a chief. 
The first thinj that attracts hl<« attention is 
a beautiful blanket, a red Mah-kce-nah. 
perhaps, which tho artful agoat has placet! 
in a promlnout poslt'on for the very pur- 
po.!c. He must havo thai blanket. Very 
well; tho agent Is willing that ho shoula; 
it id just tho samo as money. A roll is 
prepared iu blank (but the ignorant lu- 
diuu docs not know it.) He makes his 
mark. Then the blank is filled by the 
agent with as many blankets as ho deems 
prudent. Our Seminole has known of in- 
stances v,hero tho blank has been filled 
with forty blankets, while only one was 
actually received by the Indian receipting. 

There are hutcLiCT knives, a very nice 
ar:iole. Au Indian who wishes ouo is 
charged $40 for it. If ho gets drunk and 
W:?he3 to return it and get something else, 
he is the same day permitted to return it, 
and Is credited with $1.25. 

Presently the agent, flndtng that his re- 
ceipts will cover the whole annuity to the 
tribe, suddenly closes hia books, and im- 
nouuces to the crett-iallcn Indians that 
there Is no more to come. But he \m* 
still on Laud a few blaukots and other tri- 
fles forwh chhc will dicker. If an Indian 
would like an old French musket, lor 
which tho agent has paid $3, he can have 
it for $45 in cash, or furs, at tho owest 
price. So the shamekts trade goes on. 
At night the agent has full icceipts for his 
goods or cash, uuJ has seven-eighths of the 
whole safe in his pocket or under guard. 
Perhaps ho wdl havo large portions of it 
exposed for sale on the frontier, shortly 
afterward. Perhaps he will have it taleiy 
burled at his encampment. " 

Now, if he can get all the Indians drunk 
he can probably steal back the greiter 
portion of tke one-eighth attributed to 
them. Next day he will swear they traded 
with him lor whisky. So he rolls out a 
dozen kegs of whisky, knocks out the 
heads, and winds up the day with the big- 
gest spree he can get up. 

This is the model Indian agent, painted 
from life. 

A Hoo Stohy.— Mr. Eliiha Atwatcr, 
of Munson, informs us that on icturniue 
from an absence of a few vreeks, last June, 
he lound that astraw stack had tipped over, 
and it was thought that some hogs that 
were in the habit of frequenting the stack 
might have been buried beneath it. Noth- 
ing, however, was done with it until a 
week or two ago, when the straw was re- 
moved to release some poles that had been 
covered by the fall of the stack. When 
near the bottom a hog was heard to grunt 
underneath, and the straw was quickly re- 
moved from the place Indicated, when a 
live hog was found, imprisonrd in the space 
beside a pole, giving just sufficient room 
for Vie animal to stand on its knees and to 
move forward and backward about half its 
length. The hog had been under that 
straw more than three months, with no 
drink, no food but rye straw, and not even 
room to stand up ! Tho animal was taken 
out and let go, when it ran a few steps and 
fell down It appeared blinded by the 
light, was ver>' thin and weak, and was 
bleached as white as snow. It made no 
attempt to eat, and appeared to know no 
use for food or drink. It was attacked by 
the other hogs, and had to be removed to 
a seperatc enclosure, where it rcmainc-d in 
a sort of imbecile condition fur about a 
week, eating nothing whatever. Mr. At- 
water then poured some milk down its 
throat, after which it began to revive, and 
finally com menc^ to nibble corn. It is 
now thriving, with as bright prospects of 
filling a pork barrel as any other hog. —

A Ball FJeht at Cadlx. 

An officer on board the United States 
ship Shamrock, in a letter from Lisbon, 
dated August 22d, 18ti7, gives the follow- 
ing account of a bull fight which he at- 
tended a few days before, at Cadiz : 
" While here we went to sec a regular bull 
fight. It was the first real one I had seen, 
as at this place the bulls are not killed, 
and besides, their horns being covered 
with thick leather, the horses cannot be 
seriously injured. In Cadiz the building 
is a very large one, and on the occasion 
when we were there there were about six 
or eight thousand people present. The 
ring is surrounded by a heavy fencp, with 
two gates — one to admit the live bulls the 
other to drag out the dead ones. On the 
inside there arc a lew places surrounded 
by boards, where the men can take shelter 
if chased by the bull, and have not time to 
escape over the fence, which is made of 
thick boards, and sufficiently strong to re- 
sist any attack of the bull. Tho ladies 
present occupied the boxes, and were in 
mil dress ; in fact, a bull fight is the grand 
occasion for the sex to snow their good 
clothes. The torturing and tormenting 
which the bull has to go through is, to use 
an English expression, "beastly." The 
worst of the whole affair is allowing the 
horses to be gored until they can no lon- 
ger stand. The picadores, or horsemen, 
have no means ot defence except a small 
lance, witu a pike an inch long in the end, 
and, when the bull starts for them, they 
are seldom able to check him in the least, 
and. In consequence, the poor blindfolded 
horse gets tho bulls horns into his side, 
g«nerally ripping him open frightfully. 
But lift e eflbrt is made to keep tho horses 
out of the bull's way, and the legs of the 
picidores being encased in iron, it makes 
but little difference to them whether the 
horse is knocked down or not At the 
close of the contest the maiadore takes a 
sword and after playing with tho bull for 
some time with a flag, when the incensed 
beast rushes at him he runs the swt^rd Into 
t ae bull's neck between the shoulders. Of 
course he has to be dexterous and quick in 
the movement or the bull would otherwise 
probably kill him. If the thrust Is well 
made the bull dies in a low minutes. These 
men will sit calmly In a chair and not 
move until hey can first touch the shoul- 
ders of tho animal with the sword, and 
then make a single lunge. It is dangerous 
work, but not so much so as the tormenting 
of the bull, when short darts, about eigh- 
teen inches long, with barbed points, arc 
run into the buU's neck aud allowed to re- 
main there, being decorated with ribbons, 
&c., to look *' pretty." These things are 
nut done when the bull is quiet, but when 
he is furioush' rushing at the man, who 
thrusts the darts in, and then with gr«at 
celerity gets out of the way. It is a W)rt 
of touch-and-go business as, when the Hdit 
is performed, there are seldom more than 
six inches space between the man and the 
horas of the animal. In these contests 
many persons are often injured, and occa- 
sionally some are killed. There were six 
bulls killed at this expoJitlon, and twenty 
seven horses either killed or badly gored. 
•Vltogelher it was a very good fight of the 
kind, and about as disgusting and degrad- 
ing iu its cfi'ects on the public mind as any 
amusement that can possibly be lound. Of 
course, therefore, it is just suited to give 
amusement to the Spanish race, who, Irom 
tho Ruecn and nobility dow to the lowest 
subject, all go on Sunday atlernoon and 
sometimes during the week to see bulls and 
horses tortured and killed, and who are es- 
pecially delighted when fireworks are ap- 
plied to tho bull to make him savage and 

The Kaniie>—.4. IVew Soutlieru 

From the Norfolk (Va.) Joarnal. 
We have been shovrn a specimen of this 
new Southern staple, which is said to be 
6uporit)r iu productiveness to cotton, and 
to both cotton and flax as a textile. It was 
introduced into America from the Island of 
Java by Don Benito Roezl, the Austro- 
Belgian botanist, and brought by him to 

Havana and New Orleans in 1867. The 
flbre of the plant is purely wldte, and ol 
a silky appearance — finer than any cottrn 
or flax linen, and stronger. In -a warm 
latitudo the plant is hardy and vigorous. 
The crops are bikcn, like those of cane, by 
cutting it at the ground. From the rat- 
toons spring new growth, more vigorous, 
it is said, than the former. In Louisiana, 
Middle and Lower Mlssiesipp', Alabama, 
Texas, OL-<jrgia, Florida, and South Caro- 
lina, three or four cuttings may be ob- 
taineil during the year. It is best adapted 
to rich, sandy growth, and is planted by 
cuttings of roots or stalks, or by layers. 
When well rooted it will yield about 800 
pounds of the fibre to the acre, and has 
been sold in England at sixiy-flve cents a 
pound. Experiments of French botanists 
have evoiveJ the followiug advantageous 
points : 

1. The ramie is slrongci' than European 

2. It ii fifty per cent, stronger than the 
best Belgian flaxen or linen fibre. 

3. The flbre may bo spun as fi))e as that 
of flax, and will prove twice as durable. 

4. It is a vigorous grower, and will pro- 
duce tho greatest amount of textile flbre of 
any plant known. 

5. It will produce, in the belt in which it 
flourishes, from three to five annual crops, 
each equal to ihc bi-st gathered from hemp. 

The machinery invented b)- Mr. R'xzl 
for cleansing it may be obtained at a mod- 
erate cost, and it is simple in construction, 
and light. In 1865 he sent flftv tierces, or 
5,000 Spanish pounds, to England, where 
it sold at doublo the price of the quality ol 

A FrencU Wonder. 

At first the public and then the press 
have been for some time heralding the 
miraculous cures performed by an obscure 
Zouave, who has only to pronounce the 
famous " take up thy bed and walk" to 
restore sight to the blind, strMigth to the 
invalid, and healthy vigor to the paralytic. 
This new Messiah,' if wo are to credit daily 
reports, is astonishing doctors, philoso- 
phers, and the Parisians fencrsUy, with 
cures which have defied all medical skill 
His house is literally besieged with suffer- 
ing humanity. His saloons, bed-room, 
dining-room, and kitchen, are encumbered 
with the lame, blind and paralytic, who 
arrive from all quarters, attracted by the 
rumors of his wonderful cures ; hundreds 
are waiting outside for their turn, and 
many would try, as in tho olden time, en- 
trance by the rool^ did not the lormidablc 
conetructlon of tho building preclude the 
possibility of success iu that quarter. He 
is said to employ no medicaments, make 
no prescriptions, accept no remuneration, 
but simply look upon the suflerer, com- 
mand him to throw aside his crutches and 
walk, aud the cure is performed. He says 
he does this by a certain magnetic influ- 
ence, and can succeed in nearly every case 
where the afflicted organs are not entirely 
destroyed. His reputation is hourly In- 
creasing. The papers are registering the 
declarations of persons, who, at thu simple 
sight of the Zouave, have been able to 
throw away their crutches, and dance as 
if they ha«l never been deprived of the use 
of their legs. Packages of letters and 
cuds from directors of hospitals, from 
physicians and priests, arrive in abund- 
ance from all quarters, praying the Zouate 
ijuerisseur to accord them an interview. 
Tho most astounding cure yet performed 
was that of a high personage, whom no 
one could accuse of a complicity with th^ 
Zouave ; that person was no other than 
Marshal Forey, who, as everybody knew, 
had been confined to his bed for the last 
five or six months by a hcmipUgi*^ and to- 
tally unable to walk. The treatment em- 
ployed was the same in this circtunstance 
u in the others. 

Hasbands at Home. 


Mr?. " Pat.iy Spangle," a charming cor- 
respondent of the Louisville Courier, ad- 
dresses the following to Mr. " Yub a dam." 
There are many ladies, we dare say, who 
think with Mrs. Spangle, if they do not 
speak out. To them this letter will be a 
great treat : 

I first met Spangle et a country fair. 
We were introduced to each other about 10 
o'clock in the morning, and, if you will 
behove me, I did not get a chance to speak 
to any other gentleman that day. I never 
saw a fellow so struck at first sight. I 
don't think he saw a horse, or in fact any 
thing that was on exhibition that day but 
me, although there were present many of 
the most beautiful and accomplished young 
ladles of that section of tho countrj'. As 
he was extremely good looking, of good 
family, and of unexceptionable habits and 
character, I, of course, lelt flattered by his 
marked preference. I had to take him to 
uinncr, and introduce him to pa and ma 
and the whole family. Ho made a very 
good impression. In fact Spangle can 
shine when he tries. I remember the fact 
with pride. Well, it is the old story. Ho 
became infatuated, and obtained my per- 
mission to visit me at my home and spend 
a day there in Just two weeks from the 
day we met. During these two weeks I 
received daily long letters from Simon, 
closely written and cross-written. (I wish 
I had kept them.) At length tho day of his 
visit arrived, aud lo and behold, the ser 
vant girl awoke me in the morning with 
the pleasant information that Spangle was 
waiting for me in the parlor. Here was a 
lover for yen ! 

Well, well ! As I faid before, it was the 
old story ever recurring, ever sweetly told, 
and ever listened to by willin"; curs. Suf- 
fice it to say that from that day I saw no 
Eeace until I became Mrs. Spangle. Our 
oneymoon was, I suppose, liiie all honey- 
moons, short and dchcious. 

And then came the realities of life. It 
is my belief that this is the most trying 
period of woman's life. However kind 
and attentive her husband may bo, a young 
wifie when she enters upon the actualities 
of life, has disclof ed to her a state of facts 
of which she has little or no conception 
before marriage. When sho leaves au at- 
mosphere of romance and adulation and 
enters upon the realities of life, it is like 
stepping out of a garden of summer flow- 
ers into the regions of perpetual winter, 
and unless she brings all of her good seme 
and philosophy to her aid, her affections 
will become chilled, and she will regard 
herself a disappointed, if not a deceived, 
woman for the balance of her life. It is 
the hope that our experience may be of 
benellt to young wives that induces me to 
reveal some of the domestic incidents and 
infelicities of twelve years of married life. 

After our brict holiday. Spangle — to use 
his own cxprcEsion — took a lilt at tlie 
world, determined to wrest from it not only 
a competence but a fortune, that would 
place mo in the most beatific attitude tu be 
obtained by opulence. 

The dear fellow did work hard, and il 
he met with obstacles, and difficulties, and 
trials, the world never knew it. Ho re- 
served them lor his fireside, and, although 
he did not accuse me as the cau=e, yet he 
recounted them in a tone and manner so 
different from the joyous and buoyant Ian 
guage of courtship, that I could but feel I 
was some way or other accountable for his 
troubles. Although I never seriously 
doubted his lovo for me, yet he certainly 
permitted many excellent opportunities for 
manifesting it to pass uniniprovod. Be- 
fore we were married, he seemed to havo 
a perfect mania for holding my hand, and 
I used to wonder if ho would ever give me 
an opportunity to do any needle work 
after marriage. But, bless your soul! 
after marriage, when opportunities for 
indulging in that dehclous pastime were 
abundant, il Eecmed to have lost its charm. 
Poor, foolish me ! I was often aggrieved 
at his apparent coolness, and would ask 
him twenty times a day If he did not love 
mo. " Why, certainly I do, mv dear iittle 
puss ; I thought you knew iL" Yte, ho 
tUought I knew it ! Perhaps I did I ah o 
knew that we had plenty of fiour and 
bacon in the pantry, but tha*. knowledge 
did not satisfy my hunger. 

It is true that this aflection manlfe&ltd 
Itsell spasmodically with all tho warmth and 
ardor of the old days, but these ebullitions 
were the exceptions. Tlie rule was, " I 
thought you knew it." Yes, girls, when 
you get husbands they will expect you to 
know it, and my advice to you is, that j ou 
got all the courting you want befaro you 
are married, for after that event what httlo 
courting is done in the family will have to 
be done by tho wife. 

We havo six children, all beautiful and 

f;ood. Spangle takes great prido in them, 
oves them, and growls at them like a dear 
old bear. You must not think that Span- 
gle regards the " new comers " as burtlens. 
Quite tho reverse. He goes into ecfct.icies 
over each one; dilates upon its beauties 
and perfections for five minutes, and then 
seems to think it ought to be laid away to 
grow up, and be no further trouble to him 
until they want to marry. If one of them 
has the bellyache and cries at night. Span- 
gle thinks that the pain is a special hard- 
ship to him, because it keeps him awake a 
few minutes. The fact is undeniable tlut 
■ he best men are selfish brutes £o far as ba- 
bies are concerned. 

I will siy, though, that of all tha chil- 
dren I have. Spangle is the biggest baby. 
Tis true ho was ihrougii most of the 
aUments I havo enumerated belore I got 
him, but in a thousand other respects he 
sliil is, and always will remain in that 
chronic state of babyhood which ever at- 
tends over indulged and spoiled husband?. 
When we were first married my old baby 
would almost break his back lo pick up 
my fan, and he would kiU a fly in a minute 
if the fiy manifested a disposition to alight 
on my nose. 

Now I have to almost literally dress him 
in tho mroning. I have to get his boots 
together, one of which he generally kicks 
under the bureau, the other under the bed. 
I always have to find his cravat. If I go 
to bed first, iu the morning I find Lis 
clothes scattered over the room as only a 
man c&n scatter clothes. He would never 
put on a clean shirt if it were not spread 
out on a chair before him. His sleeve 
buttons are taken out and put in by me. 
when taktu out and put in at all. I do not 
beiicvo he has combed his own head since 
we were married. He can't even wash his 
fiice properly without being told, like any 
other child. If I did not wash him, liis 
ears and the back of hia neck would be a 
sight to behold. 

Albeit he has no patience for others who 
have pains and aches, yet you ought to 
see him when anything is the matt-jr with 
him. He tears, and groans, and grunts 
over a shght attack of colic in a manner to 
keep every one awake in the house. At 
such times he always believes he is going 
to die, and will not suffer me to leave him 
for a moment 

Yet with all his faults I— wei J, you know 

the quotation. I believe he is thu best m;in 

living, and I would not give him for a ten 

acre lot lull of men like the scapegrace of 

a husband which your foolish, credulous 

correspondent " Dolly Dash," is so silly

CoBir AND Hogs— The N. Y. Inde- 
pendent says, from carefully conducted ex- 
periments by different persons, it has been 
ascertained that one bushel of corn will 
make a little over lUi.^ pounds of pork- 
gross. Taking the result as a basis, the 
following deductions are made which all 
our farmers would do well to lay by for a 
convenient reference — that: 

When com sells for 12}4 cents per 
bushel, pork costs "[% cents per pound. 

When com costs l7 cents per bushel, 
pork costs 2 cents per pound. 

When corn costs 25 cents per bushel, 
pork costs 3 cents per pound. 

When* corn costs Sti cents per bushrf, 
pork costs 4 cents per pound. 

When corn costs 50 cents per bushel, 
pork costs 5 cents per pound. 

Value of Gkass L.vnd.— Tho time 
has not yet come when farmers appreciate, 
as they should, the value of grass. Every

Black Leg in Cattle.— The Amcri- 
can Stock Journal recommends the follow- 
ing remedies for this fearful diecafc w hidi 
carried off' some of the stock In this State 
last spring. 

' This disease is said io result sometimes 
from sudden change in the quality of the 
food. Overfed young animals, and those 
iu very low condition are most frequently' 
attacked. We would recommend the fol- 
lowing trealmenl : Mix 4 drachms epirits 
of haitshorn, and one quart of tar a atcr, 
to this add one ounce tincture of bicodrttol, 
and give as a drench. Four hours ttftcr, 
give a mixture of liquid tsr 1 02., glycerine 
4 oz., thin gruel one quart. If the animal 
shows lameness in thehack or hindquarters, 
apply oil of cedar 2 oz , cadliver oil, oz., 
sulphuric ether 2 oz., linctuie ol capsicum 
1 oz. First mix the two oils, than add the 
ether, shake them thoroughly, laell)' add 
the tiucluie. It should be well rul/Gcd in 
on the paili affected."

Tired witTi our long trdmp after game — 
for the day had been very warm — we 
threw ouisclvee upon a bare spot of ground 
on the prairif, where a low ridje gave 
shelter from the rays of the declining sun. 
Suabcs were abundant hereabouts, and 
Iherelorc it was that we selected a clear 
ppacc lor our bivouac, lest we might sit 
down upon a nctt of them unawares. 

" How bleak and dismal a country looks 
without trees ! " cxoluiLatd one of the 
party. " Even otio solitary tree would be 
a cainliirt now. Think how cozily wc 
could stretch ourselves and smoke our 
pinro under the shade ol a spreading 
oak I" 

•' 1 used to think a good deal of trees," 
drjly remarked Major Holster— a man 
A ho had traveled over most countriea ol 
the world. " 1 used to love trees, in fact," 
co:;tinue<l he ; " but I somehow lost confl- 
dcucc in them long a^o. it's very pleas- 
ant to lie nndcr a tree when you know 
what's in it ; but suppose you don't ? " 

There was a vague mvsiery, if not hor- 
ror, Ln the suggestion thrown out by the 
major, and the rest of the party, with one 
voicv, called upon him to «p!ain. 

" Well," began ho, •' I never was abso- 
lutely treed but once ifl my life, and here's 
the wav it happened : I had fixed mysolf 
up for hunting among the high ridges in a 
central country ol South 'America, and 
there I lived in clover, I tell you, for 
many weeks, game of all sorts balng plen- 
tj', and the climate, most of the time, very 
ealubrious and pleasant. One day, tired 
of the sport I had long been enloying on 
the high grounds, I made myself up for a 
day after the wild ducks, which wore very 
numerous among the dykes and ponds of a 
large tract ol meadow land that lay Just 
below where I had built my shanty. It 
w as early in the morning when 1 started 
on my Luut, alone, and all went very 
sniouiiiiy with mo till near noon, my cblel 
Uiriiculty hciRg to carry the ducks, with 
A\"titch my ^fame-bag was soon so stulfed 
that I was obliged to string the next com- 
ers from my buttonholes, and even about 
my ueck. I must havo locked much like 
one ol those Itinerant poulterers one sorae- 
times meets with iu the cities. 

" In the latitudes to which I refer, thun- 
der-storms are sudden and violent. The 
air is perfectly clear and pleaeant, and the 
sky of an intense blue, when, all at once, 
you will Eie a small black cloud rising up 
lo ihowcatward, maybe, and, before you 
have time to say ' thunder,' the dusky 
vapor goes surjjing and spiring out on 
every Sido, uulil darkness overspreads 
everything, aiid then the lightning seems 
to fan vour cheek with its flashing pin- 
ions; the thunder smashes and craalies 
close above and around you, and the rain 
coraesdowDjUOt in drops, as wc are ac- 
customed to see il m this feeble and un- 
mteretting climate, but in great cylinders, 
as if the bottoms had come out of the wa- 
tering-pots overhead, and the article was 
coming down with a looseness. Well, this 
was what happoiicii in a jidy, so lo speak, 
ji;si as 1 was preparing to cat a bit ol 
lunch I had brought with mc. There was 
no use in my turning to run for home. 
The thing was so sudden that, on looking 
toward the ridge, 1 could see the streams 
that had lately been mere threads raging 
and tumbling down among the rocks in 
cascades, currying stones and trees and 
great raxjsea of earth along with them. 
The high grounds v/ere at least a mile 
away, and yet I made instinctively to- 
ward them, but had not gone a hundred 
yards when I was aware of water plashing 
beneath my leet in a vvay ia which it had 
cot plasheti during the morning's tramp. 
Immediatbly it wasup to my ankles, and 
I haidly had made up my mind as to what 
I had best do when 1 found the ripples of 
it poanngover the tops ol my boots. The 
whole meadow was one great lake in less 
than a quarter of an hour, with the tops 
of the tallest reeds fait disappearing be- 
neath the domineering element. Cropping 
prou ily out of the water, at about one 
hundred yards from whore I stood, I could 
Just disiinguish a sfjlitary tree, the only 
one to be seen for miles around. For this 
1 made, and the water was nearly up to 
my arm-pitb when I reached it. It was a 
huge mora tree, the gnarled limbs of which 
stood out within reach from the ground, so 
that I had no difficulty in climoiag into 
1* ; ai)d once there I climbed np liUo the 
branches abore any possible high-water 
mark; aad, seating myself firmly, in a co- 
modious crotch, 1 pulled my cap over my 
eyes and resigned myself to late. 

•' Thick as the foliage of the tree was, it 
formed but a poor shield against th» driv- 
ing torrent, and bo wet was f , and chilled, 
that 1 should certainly have descended 
from my perch, and stiuck out for the 
high lands but for two reasons ; the first of 
which was that 1 cannot swim, and the 
second, that the alligators from the swamps, 
as I was well aware, go prowling around 
when these suddon freshets take place, to 
look after such stray creatures as may 
have been washed down from the settle- 
ments and sent adrift in the fl(xxl. The 
rain was abating now, and on looking 
down to see Isow high up my tree the water 
hid reached, 1 noticed that it was pour- 
ing in at a large knot-hole in the hollow 
trunk, which hole was at a distance of 
a»)oat twelve feet from the ground, and 
nearly as far below where I was sitting 
The vwra tree, when old, is apt to be hol- 
lo v not only in the trunk, but in all iu 
principal branches— and my tree was no 
exception to the general rule, as you shall 

" While I was looking eagerly out upon 
the waters, to see whether any reappear- 
ing top* of reetls mijihl give a hope that 
the flood was falling, I felt a powerful jerk 
at the breast of my coat — so powerful, in 
fact, that it nearly tugged me out of my 
seat. When I had recovered from my as- 
tonishment at this, I ventured to look 
down, and there, to my extreme horror, I 
Saw an immense serpent, of the boa kind, 
coiUtl among the branches a few feet below 

mc. The reptile had evidently been driv- 
en by the water from its lodging in the 
hollow of the tree, and had crawled out 
through one of the numerous knot-holes. 
Attracted by the ducks that were attached 
with a lerthern thong to the upper button- 
hole of my coat, it l.ud just swallowed the 
lowermost of them, and was struggjing 
hard with the next when I was attracted 
by its movements. Of course, I lost no 
time in severing my connetion with this 
horrible creature, by cutting the string ; 
had I not done which promptly, 1 think it 
quite probable that 1 should have been 
sucked iu when my turn cimc. which 
would have been atier tbo thitd duck, for 
the reptile was big enough and ugly 
enough to have held us all fjur. Then, as 
I scrambled up among the brauchcs in 
search of a fafer atylum, what was my 
horror to find them interwoven and hlts- 
ing with serpents of all sorts and slzc.^, 
each and every one of whicli cvidcully 
looked upon mc us au interloper and intru- 
der upon their pruatf- premises! Tijo 
snakes were of a sn:allei kind as I contin- 
ued lo ascend the lice, and 1 thought at 
first there might bu some advantage in 
that, and kept going up But, ughT just 
as I was about to grasp a branch, for the 
purpose of swinging myself into a crolcb, 
I saw lying stretched out upon il a yellow, 
vicious looKing snake, which 1 at once re 
cognized as a specimen of tho deadly tizit- 
frcta, or sulphur-viper, one totch from the 
fangs of which, and m half au hour I 
should have beeu a livid corpse! Now I 
knew that 1 had got up into the leglju of 
poiatmous reptiles, and wished myself back 
with the boas ; but on consideration I touk 
a middle course, and lowcnng myself down 
to the branches among which I had no- 
ticed the. smaller constrictors, I unslung 
my gun, intending to fire a shot from it 
every now an then, to keep tho noxious 
creatures at bay. It would not go olf, 
however, being thoroughly saturated with 
water ; and 88 night was coming on now, I 
lashed myself to a branch with my belts, 
as well as I could, and strove to shut out 
from my mind the prospect of a weary 
and horrible night. 

"The rain was over and tbe thunder 
could be heard rolling far, far away ; but 
the night was still a dark one, and I know 
that il would yet be many hours before 
the waters had fallen pufBcienlly f>)r int.* to 
make my escape. 

" 1 tried for a wnilc lo combat the ap- 
pioach of Bleep, but at last 1 could resist 
il iufiuencc* no longer; my weary eyelids 
clofed and I lell into a heavy slumber. 
How long I had been asleep I cannot say, 
bat I know thai I was startled into wide 
wakefulness some lime in the night by one 
of tho most frii^utful uproars it ever 
been my fortune lo hear. 

" For a moment I iioiagined I had faheu 
asleep in a menagerie, and that the keep- 
ers were poking at mo with their long 
poles to rouse me. Some creature- -and it. 
wasn't a very light one, I cau tell you— 
wont scrambling up my body lo gain tho 
higher brauches of the tree, leaving bs 
hind it deep traces of Us claws on my flesh. 
Glaring eyeballs were to be seen every- 
where I turned, and the tree was trans 
formed into a wdd and hideous orchestra, 
with screams of leopards and other beasts 
of prey, mingled with the hissing of 
enakfs and tho rapping of their scalc3 as 
they struggled with one another in the tur- 
moil of the night 

" From the lower part of tho tree came 
up, over and anon, the grunting and growl- 
ing of the large beasts, such as bears that 
had sought refuge there by swimming 
from the neighboring jungle. 

" Nothing that 1 had ever read concern- 
ing Pandemonium was comparable for 
horror to the tumult by which I was sur- 
roundetl on that memorable mght. Years 
appeared to have pa»-;ed over my head be- 
fore morning began in dawn, and then, in 
the first gray twilight, I had glimpses here 
and there ol the rreaiuies among whom I 
had passed the night. There were cou- 
gars, and spoiled leopards, and flercc-eyed 
cats of all sorts and sizes glaring at me 
from tho nooks and knot holes of the tree ; 
but I did not notice a single serpent now, 
and as 1 could see In thu increasing ligh: 
that tho waters had nearly subsided, 1 sup- 
posed that the reptiles had betaken them- 
selves to their haunt* amid the roots and 
hollows of the tree, 

" Two huge brown bears leaped from 
tho lower branenes and scuttled away for 
the jungle as I mtdo my way down the 
tree, from which I dropped on the soft, 
plashy ground with a thankful heart, and 
an inward resolve not to bo caught in a 
rainstorm in those regions again— not if 1 
knew it. 

"About a week after this adventure, 
when everything had become as dry as 
tmder under the buraing sun, I went down 
with my Indians, all armed with spears and 
torches, and wo kindled a great tire round 
the roots of the old lone nuvi tree. Il was 
nearly b:ire of leaves now fiom the rain 
and wind, and we could see the terrible 
t-quirming that took place among its wide- 
spreading branches as the flames went 
whirling and licking around its trunk, 

" Monstrous serpents reared themsrlvea 
out of the knot-holes and sped like forked 
lightning up iato the higher branches, 
which, in some cases, were unable to sup 
port their weight, and the knotted reptiles 
came whirling to the ground, where they 
were quickly dispatched by the spears ol 
the Indians. 

"Many small snakes— some of which 
were of the most dangerous kinds — otme 
gliding away from tho burning roots of the 
tree; but wo suffered none of them to 

" How I could h^vc stocked a museum 
with magnificent specimens of live boas 
had I only possessed ihe nleaua of IraLS- 
porting them to somo seaport town ! for 
the Indians with me would have lassoed 
any of them at my bidding. 

" A fter burning for an hour, the mighty 
tree sank down into its ashes, a confused 
massofguar'ed, blackened limbs, seething 
and throbbing with the half charred bodies 
of serpents. We killed eighty-four snakes 
of many varieties and all sizes on this 
occasion, and it is probable that quite as 
many more were destroyed by the flames. 

" After this adventure, I don't feel quite 
a3 much coafldence in trees as I used to. 
Has anybody else got a story to tell ? " 

Nobody eiso had.

Edward A. Pollard contributea to the 
So'Jthern Bme Journal, a new literary 
paper, just started at Baltimore, an ar- 
ticle on tho " Last CouncilBoard of the 
Southern Confederacy," from Which we 
select the following . 

The fall of Richmond was the fatal event 
of tho Conlvxlcracy. The black banner 
which the smoke from its conflagration set 
in the sky, signalled from the Potomac to 
tho MisaLssippi the end of the war, the 
despair and submission of the South. It 
was under that sign thai tlic army of Gen- 
eral lico commenced its toilsome retreat, 
and the train of officials set out to find 
somo theatre of the war beyond Virginia, 
some remnant of a government, tho nnni- 
hilation of which they had not yet fully 
realized. Wo have said that iu these last 

Eaiuful days of the Confederacy t hero was 
ut liiUo of dramatic scene lo heighten 
aud adorn the last act of tho tragedy. No 
grand catastrophe mounted tho stage. A 
tattered and traveled stained army moved 
through the woods aud on blind roads, 
with straggling, distressed trains, its march 
dotted with dead and famished soldiers, 
until broken down by toil and hunger, it 
quietly surrendered, and, with a mere in- 
siru.nent of writing, laid down ilri arms at 
Appomattox Court 1 louse. Ilichmoud had 
beeu deserted without a ccnferenco ; there 
had been no final ?cenc at the council- 
boaid, no high debate, no official speech or 
inspiration that coidd properly mark the 
great historical interest of the event. It 
was a vulgar tumult to which the Conted- 
erate cai)ilol had beon abandoned. Tame 
and unworthy were the last ^days of an 
empire whose prowess had once challenged 
the admiration of Iho woild, whose arms 
had twice peuvlralcd the emmy's country, 
whoso two hundred cannon had b^lowed 
for peace on the heights of Gettysburg, 
whu&e caiup-fires had more than once been 
lighted in the very foreground of Wash- 

But in this poverty of scenery and inci- 
dent iu which the Southern Confedercy 
perished, there was yet one remarkable in- 
terview or council which has heretofore 
been lost to the currcut and popular his- 
tories of the war— a scono which though 
taking place in a small and obscure thea- 
tre, vailed fron public knowledge, is ol 
Lnlease dramatic iutercit, and is likely yet 
to fiirnliih the last illuminated page to some 
artistic hittorian of tho war, who like 
Macaulay shall produce this very images of 
tho past along with the record of events. 
It was the last interview, the last coafer- 
cnce of JelTerison Davis and his officers. 
It took place in a little town in South 
Cai-olina ; it was known only to the lew 
men who assembled there with their fugi- 
tive chief; yet it was properly the last 
scene of the war's great drama. It had 
a dignity that had not yet appeared in tho 
finalchaplcr of misfortune, and it is mem- 
orable alike for its artiytic effects and its 
historical Importance. 

The e.K-Presidenl of the Confederacy had 
issued at UauvsUe, Virginia, au ingenious 
and sanguine proclamation, which possibly 
might have aroused his countrymen to fur- 
ther eflbrts in the war, had not the effusion 
bfcn checked by the news of General Lee's 
surrender. This event appeared to deter- 
mine the last hopes of the Southern people, 
to convince them that further prosecution 
of the war was uselcie, and even criminal in 
a fruitless consumption of human life. Not 
so with Mr. Davi^. He was remarkable for 
a sanguine temperament ; he had that dis- 
position, at once imperious and weak, 
wtiich, demanding that all things must bo 
as it wishes, believes them so ; and what 
the world thought the swollen boasts of a 
desperate and falling leador were really the 
biucero illusions of a proud man who never, 
Indeed, fully rea'l/ed the extremity of his 
cause until "tho iron onl^irod his soul " in 
the casemates of Fortress Monroe. In his 
strangely deliberate and leisurely retreat 
through the Carolinas, he had not ap- 
peared lor a moment to realize that be was 
a fugitive, and he looked with complacency 
upon the dissolved fragments of the army 
that had gathered on the lino of his flight, 
and that pursued it with a vague aud un- 
certain design. Aa officer who was con- 
stantly in his compan}' in what might be 
thought davs of anguish and despair to the 
fallen chief testifies : " Mi-. Davis was ap- 
parently untouched by any ol thu do- 
moral-zition which prevailed— ho was 
affable, diguiflcd, aud looked the very per- 
sonification of high aud undaunted 
courage " He yet persisted that the cause 
was not lobl, although Leo had surrendered 
although Johnston had furled his banners 
without a battle, and although all that was 
visible of the great armies that had stootl 
from Richmond to Augusta, on the doai- 
inanl lines of the war, were the less than 
<mo thousand soldiers, fragments of brig- 
ades that a.ssembled around him at Abbe- 
ville, South Carolina, when ho paused 
there for a final couacil with his Generals 
There is somethlag curious, even pain- 
ful, in this delusion, yet admirable and 
sublime. The ex-President refused to read 
the word "failure," which tho public had 
pronounced agaln-'t hint, and which he 
might have seen written in the face,"* ol the 
slouched and dispirited soldiers who yet 
attended him. His glittering eye was not 
yet quenched ; his slackened nerves were 
struug up with a new resolution and hope , 
he was practising that most difficult art of 
life, which maintains even manners in 
sudden adversity, and with the trained 

fjambler's steady challenge, coolly and de- 
iberately tries the last resuurce of fortune. 
But even that last resource was denied 
him. Fortune liad no more stakes for 
him ; aad with the sharp pain ol the game- 
ster, who prepares for the last chance, and 
then finds he has miscounted, and has not 
means even to try that, tho man who had 
bargained lor empire, and played with the 
destinies of whole communities suddenly 
found himself without a single soldier at 
his command, and a bunted f jgltive in 
perdof his life! 

In the little town of Abbeville .^r. 
Davis summoned his officers lo council; he 
was determined to try their resolution, and 
anxious to ascertain the spirit of their incn. 
The only full Generals who yet attended 
him were Bragg, his "ralUtary adviser," 
and Breckinri(^e, lately Secretary of War. 
There were nVc brigade commanders 
present at the conference. To this small 
but important audience Mr. Davis ad- 
dressed himself with all the powers of his 
wonderful an^ subtile inlelletl. The old, 
imperious looK was yet in his worn face ; 
tho eye, transfixed witli neuralgic pain, 
with its deep reccsa of light, shone 
steady and defiant; the thin visage was 
illumlnated by the active mind and 
shone with tho animated discourse. He 
spoke In the even, silvery tones of his ac- 
customed eloquenee ; one of tho greatest 
orators of modern times, excelling in tho 
powers of etateimnt or narration, ingenious 
even to sopbistrv, joining winnng manner 
to words cuUid from the choicest resources 
of language, he now tried all his powers 
in this critical opportunity. Ho declared 
that the country was only euflering from 
violent surprises and an exagg«rated alarm; 
its resolution would soon be erect again ; 
the present condition was that of panic, 
and patriotism would soon be aroused 
when it heard tho commRnding and reas- 
suring tones of authority. He insisted 
that the war was not hopeless. The armies 
could be re asH-mbled, and there would be 
new calls for enlistments and new in- 
centives to the countr>''s service. He said 
that even the few hundred men he yet 
counted arotmd him were enough to pro- 
long the war until the panic had passed 
away, and they would then be a nucleus 
for thousands more. He urged his officers 
to accept his views, and animate their men 
to stand to the good cause-, whose honor 
they had so long maintained, and whose 
last hopes they now carried on their bay- 

His auditors were silent. At length 
they spoke, one by one, each brigade com- 
minder stating thu condition and temper 
of his men, and declaring hia views of the 
situation. It was a tjlain, unanimous 
judgment : the war coulu not succeed and 
should not be prolonged ; they could not 
ask their men lo struggle against a fate 
which was inevitable, and forfeit all hopes 
of restoration to their homes and friends ; 
but they would insist that their honor was 
involved in securing the escape of Mr. 
Davis, and for the accomplishment of this 
object they would risk battle and put off 
submission to the last moment. 

" No, no ! " exclaimed the unhappy chief, 
iu passionate accents. " I will hear of no 
plan which has for its object only my safe- 
ty." Then speaking slowly and bitterly, 
with a dee]) and leariul change settling on 
his (tjuntenanco, he said : " All hope Is 
gone! Alas, that I should see the day 
when all the friends of the South are pre 
pared to consent lo her degradation." He 
laltored, and eat down iu silence; every 
one in the rfjfin respected him too much to 

Presently, without even a gesture of 
courteous retirement, without any ac- 
knowledgment of the company whatever, 
he rosoto leave the room ; aud It was ob- 
served that he had lost his erect carriage 
and defiant port. A v\eiglil of yiars ap- 
peared to have suddenly fallen on the 
htrieken sufferer. The eyes wore uneasy 
iu the pale, pinched fice ; aud «o uncer- 
tain aud tottering was his step thai Gen- 
eral BrecUiaridge moved to his side, and, 
giving him his arm, supported him from 
the room. Not a word was spoken. 

It is a true and delicate philosopher, 
whf>, exploring a scene of despair, says : 
" The sentiment that attends the sudden 
levelatlon that all j.i fo«n8 silently gath- 
ered up into the heart. Il is too deep lor 
gestures or for words. The voice perishes, 
thogesturas aro frozen, and the spirit of 
man flics back upon its own centre."

I have at kit, after several months' ex- 
perience, made up my mind that il is a 
splendid desert— a domed ana steepled soli- 
tude, where the stranger is lonely in tho 
niidsl of a million of his race, A man 
walks his tedious miles through the same 
interminable streets every dav, elbowing 
his way through a buzzing ruultitudc of 
men, yet never seeing a familiar luce, and 
never sociug a strange one the second 
tioie. He viMtMi friend once— it is aday's 
journey— and then stays away from that 
iimo lorwaid till that fiicud cools to a mere 
acquamtanco and fin illy to a stranger. So 
there ia little &<.>ciabilii3', .lud, consequently 
there .s little cordhillly. Every man seems 
to feel that ho has got the duties of two 
lifetimes to perform in one, and so ho 
rushes, rushes, rusheti, and Kever nas limo 
to bo companionable— never hus any time 
to fuul away on matlcrs which do not in- 
volve dollars and duty and businee.'?. 

All this has a tendency to make the ei^y- 
bred man impatient of interruj^liou, sus 
picioiis of strangers, aud fearlul of being 
bored, aud his bUbiaess interfered with, 
the natural resuU id, that the sinking want 
of heartiness observable here, sometimes

towards strangers. A large party of Cali-

lieve there was any genuine fellow-fcelim?

were polite there, exasperatiagly pulito, 
just as they are outside. One cf them 
prayed for the stranger within his gates-

he didu't mean his petition to bo taken in

he didu't know me, but would recommend

geratiuu, but I thought it was a pretty fair 
satire upon the sereuo indifference of the 
New Yorker to every thing without the

There is something about this ceaseless 
buzz, and hurry, and bustle, that keeps a 
stranger in a state of unholesome excite- 
ment ail tha time, and makes hhn restless 
and vmeajy, and saps from him all capacity 
to enjoy anything or take a strong inierest 
In auv matter whatever — a something 
which Impels him lo try to do everything, 
and yet permits him to do nothing. He is 
a boy In a candy shop— could choose quick- 
ly if there were but one kind of candy, 
but la hopelesaly undetermined In the 
midst of a hundred kinds. A stranger feels 
unsatisfied hero a good part of tho time. 
He starts to a library ; and changes, moves 
forward to a theatre^; changes agaiu and 
thiuks he will visit a friend ; goes within a 
biscuit-toss of a picture-gallery a billiard- 
room, a beer-cellar, and a circus, In succos 
sion, and finally drifu home and to bed 
without having really gone anywhere. He 
don't go aaywhero because ho can't go 
everywhere, I suppose. This fidgetty, 
feverish restlessness will driveamancraiy

to get out of it. 

There is one thing very sure— I can't 
keep my temper in New York. Tte cars

way just as I want to cross a street and if 
there is anything that can make a man 
soar into flights of sublimity in the matter 
of profanity It is that. You know that 
yourself. However I must be acurate— I 
must speak the truth and soy that there is 
one thing more annoying. T;.at is to go

A scientific writer In the Chicago Tri- 
bune says on this subject : 

The discussion which lias been prc^ress- 
ing for a few years past, havmg for its ob- 
ject the determination of the sun's distance 
Irom the oarth, seems to bo in a fair way 
of approximate solution. The recent ob- 
servations on the parallax of the planet 
Mars, summarized by Professor New- 
combe, point with singular unanimity to 
a reduction of the mean distance as com- 
monly received, by rIkjuI two aud a half 
millions of miles, or from 93,000,000 to 
9^,310,000, a correction of a little leas than 
thre^ per cent. 

It needs but a sUght acquaiutauce with 
theoretical astronomy to perceive that the 
determination of this quanlily is of vast 
con.sequence to the study of the science. 
The earth's radius vetlor is ia reality the 
incasuring rod, which is Uken us the' uuit 
in all calculatioai of absolute distance or

di-duced the distances of tho heavenly bod- 
ies from tho sun, their diameters, the mag- 
nitude of tho orbits of tho planetary sate- 
litea, tho approximate diameter of the gulf 
which separates the solar system frora^thc 
fixed stars, and tho velocity of light. An

the most densely populated town of the 
four. From these data it appears that the 
increase of New York is equal to that of 
three other cities, taken together— a cir- 
cumstance owing of course to the stream 
of emigration constantly flowing in that 
direction. In 1790 the population of New 
York was 38,131, acd it has since teen four 
times doubled. With regard to the other 
towns, Dr. Vachar attributes their increase 
to the tendency of the country people to 
migrate to tho largo centres of population, 
for the mere excess of births over deaths 
cannot account for this increase. Paris 
has doubled in the course of 82 years, Lon- 
don in the course of 40, and Vienna in the 
course of 44. Yet tho excess of births 
over deaths in Paris was only 41,984 from 
1838 to 1856, while the increase of poula- 
tlon, during the same period was 805,908 
In London, from 1S41 to 1861, the excess 
ol. births over deaths was 821,180; the in-

It may seem strange that such 
versily of opinion has existed iu 
of a quantity which is coufeesodly tho 
eubject of calculation. But tho mystery 
vaaishes when wo consider the way iu 
which the results have been arrived at. 
Tlie one quantity on which tho solution of 
the problem turns is the aaglo formed at 
the sua by two lines, which at tho earth 
are subtcndetl by her semi diameter. This 
known, the rest is but a simple question in 
piano trigonometry, the value of the 
eailh's semi-diameter being known lo a 
nicety. The equation I3 as the hue of this 
(the parallactic) angle is lo tbe earth's 
bcml-diameter, so is tlio cosine of the B.ame 
angle lo the earth's distance, or the cotan- 
gent of tho parallax multiplied into tho 
semi diameter, is equal to the distance. 

The great dilflculty ues in the smallness 
of the parallactic angle. The value said to 
have been deduced by Eucke Is but 8.5886 
seconds, aud that deduced by Newcombe 
from the cbservdlious on Mars, is but 8 85 
seconds; yet that little dillerence of twen- 
ty-eight one-hundred Ihs of a second of 
space, a quantity so small as to be inap- 
preciable by any but tho best instruments, 
involves a difference in the mean distance 
of mure than two and a half millions of 

The minute difference between these 
two quantities will be belter appreciated 
when it is stated as a little less than the 
space apparently passed over by a fixed 
star la Ihe heavens in one fiftieth part of 
a second of time, and that tho whole par- 
allactic angle is but about equal to that 
described by the same star in one-half 
second of time. 

With this fact in mind, the wonder is 
rather that the distance can ever be 
known with greater accuracy than that 
obtained by the old rule of guessing at the 
square root of tho quantity, and multiply- 
ing that number into Itselr 

The problem is, however, solved— po- 
tentially, if not actually. There is very 
little doubt that the concltisions announced 
by Professor Newcomb are within a small 
fraction of the truth, and now that the 
eyes of astronomers are opened, and their 
instruments perfected, there is very little 
doubt that the approaching transits of 
Venus over the solar disc in December of 
the years 1874 and 1883 will be watched 
with such accuracy that the parallax will 
be deduced to within two or three thou- 
sandth part of a second of space, giving 
the diaiance of the earth from tho sun 
true to tho fifth figure from the decimal 
point, instead of the eighth, as now.

whom had been inveterate drinkers, and 
that their liquor was taken from them the

A Dangerous Season. 

An almost unparalleled quantity of raUi baa fall- 
en during the Summer. Vegetation has been 
wonderfully thick and rank, and, ae 11 decays, an 
unusual amount of sickness may be expected «n- 
J08S proper means are taken to prevent It. 

Fever and ague aud bllloua remlttenta already 
prevaU to an alarming extent, md aa the Fall 
advances and the malarious night foga become 
heavier, the sick list la likely to Increase both In 
hi the city and tbe country. It la, therefore, only 
an act of common prndence to keep tbo vital forces 
in full vigor, so that they may resist tho unhealthy 
influences of the season. Re-lnforced by the tonic 
operauon of HOSTErTEli'S BTOM.\.CU BIT- 
TERS, tbe system, however weak and susceptible 
naturally, will in nine cases out of ten, euccceefully 
combat every species of atmospheric poison by 
which eiddemics are produced. 

During the monihs of Septombci-, October and 
November, the difference in temperature between 
day and night Is very great, and tho cbiiling dews 
and mists of the eeaaon are the prolific causes of 
Indigestion, cbolera-morbus, diarrhea, and dyeen- 
tci7. Bearing thie In mind, remember, also, that 
tbe BITTEBS not only mvlgorrte the stomach and 
brace the nerves, but act speclQcaily upon tbe 
bowels and the liver, Imparting to those important 
organs regularity and tone. It Is not reaconable 
to expect immunity from prevalent complaints If 
CO precautions aro taken to escape them. 

HOSTETTER'S CITrERS are at onco pleasant 
to the taste, and the most certain of all sau^gnardB 
against ffbrllc ailments.

Oillnic tHe . ca. 

Au eiptrienced sea captain says he 
has been at sea for twenty-eight years, and 
master of a vessel for the last ten years, 
and during that time he twice saved the 
vessel under his command by "oiling the 
sea." He says : "When the master of a 
ship cannot get out of a storm— that is, 
when a ship is disabled, and he has to take 
the heft of the gale— if he has oil on 
board, start two or three gallons over the 
side of the ship. This will give the ship 
smooth water to the windward, and then 
the oil allowed to nm drop by drop is all 
that is required ; for as soon as the sea 
comes in contact with the oil it breaks, 
and tho ship is in smooth water as long as 
the oU is allowed to run. In 1804, in the 
heaviest gale of wind I ever saw, 1 lost all 
my sails, ihen the rudder, and 1 know the 
vessel could not have ridden the sea for 
an hour if 1 liad not had oil on board. 
Five gallons of oil lasted me fifty-six 
hours, and this saved the vessel, cargo and

Town and County Matters. ! 

A CiRiors SiusTANCE. — We saw vester- 
d.i7 at the Chamber of Commerce, a curious 
hubatanoe broujrht down by some one from 
the Siiiik Valley. It rcserables a sheet of 
. cnrae felt, aad'is said to cover the giound 
for miles. It appears to be the residum of 
the flood last spring, but whether it i.s of 
vexet^'j'- orij^in, or what it is, we cannot 
.«av. It has a fibrous appearance, and has 
kcl some to suppose that it might be useful 
..^ an article of manufacture. Whether it 
-^n be put to any practical use or not, re- 
• '.ains to be seen, v^onie of it has been 
sent to the paper mill at t>t. Anthony, and 
if it .should turn out that paper can be made 
of it. the supply is inexbaustable, and u 
will prove a discovery of imporianco. At 
least we hope the matter will be investiga- 
ted, so r.s ta see whether the substance has 
any real valua or not.— Pioneer, ilk tnsl. 

Tns Winona Democrat acknowledges the 
receipt of some apples, raised by Thos. 
I'rell, about a mile and a half from that 
city. The apples were of -rood size, very 
Round and of hue flavor. Mr. Urcll thinks 
Lo will have on his orchard this yeai , at 
least, twenty-five barrel;^ of fniit, and had it i 
not b.-enfor the wind blowing "if l''^' "ppl<^- 
prematurely, he believes he would have 
?ftiherod forty bairels. The Dfmocr.Uca 
timates the a'pplo crop in Winona county 
the peesent year at not less than six hun- 
drci bushels. 

Thk Jefferson Hou=!P, at Monticello. was 
turned on Sunday morning aiiout three 
o'clock. It is suj.i)Osed that the fire ongin- 
nted in the sitting room and brforc it was 
discovered had made such progress that no 
human aid nouM extinguish tiio liames, and 
in less than half an hour this sjilendid hotel 
was in ashes. The supposed loss is $.>,000, 
insured in the Winiushiek Company lur 
S* 000 Notwithstanding the loss is very 
•cvere. Mr. Moore will rc-buil<l the same as 
Kocu as possible.— -bV. Cloud Timei. 

DuowXED.— Mr. Russell Parker, brother 
of I.. 1). Parker, was drowned in the canal 
Yesterday ,uhder the following circumstances: 
He was en"aged, with a number of others, 
ill putting" in a rack a few feet above the 
bead gates of the canal, and in getting 
down from the platform near Xol)le & \A al- 
ker's mill, lost his lootiii* and fell into the 
-waUtr. The mills below were ail in opera- 
tion, and the current was very swift and 
Btrougat the gate, drawing him under in an 
instant, before he could make an (.ffort in 
bis own behalf, or assistance could reach 
him. He was seen to rise but once aittr 
passing the gate. The body was found, 
after- au hour's search, lodged against a 
trestle work about two rods belou- the gate. 
Mr. Parker was in the employ of his bro- 
ther, and had been in the city but ton days. 
He leaves a wife and four children, m

CiiEAri:sT Route Eastwahd —Passengers 
for New York, Boston and New England 
cities, will be glad to learn tha- the Erie 
Railway Company is yet issuing First-Class 
Tickets to New York at S2.T0 less than 
rival Lines. The pre.sent authorized rates 
of the Company are: from Dunkirk to New 
York. $8.00 ; DufTalo to New York, $a.T5 ; 
and Salamanca to New York, §7.23. To 
secure the bcnclits of these reduced rates, 
passengers should obtain tickots to Dunkirk, 
I'.ufialo or Salamanca, in.slead of purchasing 
through coupon tickets to New Vork ; and 
when at Dunkirk, Rulfalo or Salamanca, 
procure a ticket for the remainder of their 
journey, at the Erie Railway Company's 
unices, which are always open on the arri- 
val of the trains of all Western and and 
Southern Lines. The comfort and pleasure 
to be derived from a trip in one of those 
lu.xurious rolling i)alace3 of the Erie Kail- 
way, aside from the astonisliiuL' low ratos ol 
f.irv', shoultl induce our merchants and others 
to take this route when going to New \ork 
or New England, in preference to all others.

tfe|8lat)le Sicilian Hair Mm] 

Ilfifi stood the test of seven years 
trial by the public : and no prepa- 
ration for the hair yet discovered 
will produce the same bene/icial 
results. It is a new scientijic dis- 
covery, combining the most jwwer- 
fiil and restorative agents in the 
FUL COLOR. It mahcs the scalp 
white and clean; cures dandruff 
and humors, and falling out of th« 
haip ; and will make it yrow upon 
bald hcatls, except in very aged 
persons, as it furnishes the nutri- 
tive principle by which the hair 
is nourished and supported. It 
makes the hair moist, soft, and 
fllos'ty. and is unsurpassed as a 
HAIR DRESSING. It is the cheapest 
preparation ever offered to the 
public, as one bottle will accom- 
plish more and Ifist longer than 
three bottles of any other prepara- 

It is recommended and vsed by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The wonderful results prod u ceil 
by our Sicilian Hair Ilencwer 
have induced many to manufac- 
ture preparations for the Hair, 
under various names; aud in 
order to induce the trade and the 
public to purchase their com- 
pounds, thf y have resorted to false- 
hoods, by claiming they were 
former parfuers, or had some con- 
nection with our Mr. Hall, and 
their preparation was similar to 
ones. Do not be deceived by them.' 
Vurchasc the original : it has 
never been equalled. Onr Treatise 
on thr Hair, with cei'tiflcates, sent 
free by mail. See that each bottle 
has our private Itevenne Stamp 
over the top of the bottle. All oth- 
ers are itnitatious.

' l;e knownolliiiigisni of the Spectator 
crops oat Inst week in an attack on the 
J iries of Scott County. The Spectator in 
€fr. ct alleges that for tlic last ten ycurs our 
Jurjea have almost without exception, con- 
sisted of the most igiiomnt and ^jnqr.aliSed 
men iu the county,— men who could neither 
read or write their own name?. A moaner 
or more nnfouu(fcd slandtrwas never uttered. 
"VVe arc astonished that even a knownolhing 
ran be so false to truth and dc'-oniy.— so de- 
based as to slan<ler every man in Scott coun- 
t ; lor during the lost ten years, almost 
«^very man in Scott county has been on the li.<t. 15ut the fact is, the verdicts of 
Scot', county Juries have alwiiy,* stood high 
in the estimation of the court and of all lion- 
c t people. Not one of their vcnlicts lias 
ever b<xn set aside on the ground of h;iviiig

Our Jurie.s &5 the law re(|uir?s,arc composed

lionest men, and men of ability. Of course 
<h if Midlct wiil not suit that flock »f 
knownolhing buzzard.s that hover around our 
cjmniunity. Uut the trouble with the 
tij)0'.-tator Is that our Juries are composed 
largely of our foreign In rn citirciis, instead 
of native lorn m-grocs and knowr.oUiing 
buzzards. The pr.pulati jn of this county 
la also comi^oscd largely of foreign born- 
citizeiLs. Oi«c half of the towns iu this

of O'jr forz-ign born citizen.'-; and ccrtaiiily 
no county is blessed with a n or» indas rious, 
more hoJiest, or a more iutciligent population 
than ours. Nine tenths of the business ajcn 
in this county are funign born, and nine

Of course the " Hon.- Deacon Fudge was | ^.^^,j.i ^.^^.^, ,,,^,j ^,^ |,„y ;,• ,,;, ^^^,^^^ ^^Q^^^^ 
not interested in this SH-indle, for he was 
county attorney, and gave it as his legal

publishing a bogus financial stiticiuent. He 
had no itching in the palm uf tl'.e liand th:il 
Wlier.ti/n's Itch Ointment would i.vt ^uvv. 
Of course the Spectator man knew he was 
not eulilled to one cent from the county.— 
Last spring the Argus published the best, 
fullest and most complete financiiil state- 
ment that ever was published in tliis or any 
other county, and of course was entilUd to 
the pay the law provides- Don't be uneasy, 
Mr. Sjwctator, the Hon. Dt-acon Fudge is 
not our agent or friend, and there is no 
danger of the Argus getting any more than 
the law allows wliile he is countv altornev.

Lor numerous fiimlly of falsehoods, attempts 
to save her c.-edit, by calling her Republican 
Htale Auditor a '' fool," for haying instructed

The Spectator woman also denies that ^c

to U3 by the County Auditor, and that the 
County Auditor matlc it out just as it was 
prepared by the Assessors two years r.go — 
just as the descriptions have been niado by

— A. A. Low, the aeronaut, thinks ho 
has found out a way to manufacture ice. 
His procQBS is simply this ; It is a well- 
known fact that the process of evaporating 
condensed carbonic acid gas absorbs au 
immense amount of heat and prodmces a 
corresponding degree of cold. Quick.sllv«r 
is speedily frozen bv this process, and the 
thermometer is said to show 27-5 degrees 
below zero. Mr Low has invented a ma- 
chine which is said to make this agency 
available for the manufacture of ico or tho 
production of cold, and that, too, at a very 
iittlo expense. He thinks ho can mauufar- • 
ture ice at three dollars a ton in any part 
of the world. The machine is ."o arranged 
that it economizes tho material and uses 
the same gas, with veiy little waste, over 
and over again.

— There is a curious story in Houston, 
Texas, of an hidlEjnaut individual who 
kicked the cover off the coffin tho other 
dav, as they were ou the way to the " dis-

enough to suppose that ho wasn't quite

was touchingly developed recently in this 
wise : A loving father of a dutiful son died 
in one of our Western cities, and his body 
was brought East for interment. The son,

that cholera is not contagions, but is emi-

individuals are collected under bad hygie- 
nic or climateric conditions. It is trans- 
ported aionj^ great maritime, fluvial, or 
land ways ot communication by the trav- 
ellers who frequent thorn. Crowding is 
the principal cause of cholera and of al- 
most all epodcmics, and ventcllation is the 
best moans of preventing and stopping 
pueh maladies. To herd them together 
like beasts is to kill them as a matter of 
certainly. Individuals in an infected dis- 
trict must therefore be scattered, and them- 
selves and their clothes disinfected as soon 
as possible.

A Little Bill ot'KxpenacM. 

A writer In Spain has exhumed from 
thu old records a little bill of war expenses 
rendered by the Spani^'h General Gon^-ales 
do Cordova to King FerdinHn<l, afler the 
famous battle of Corigui>la. The writer 
says : 

Tho " Great Captain" wan perhaps not 
much of a book-keeper, and thought the 
kingdom he had just gained for his sove- 
reign ought lo make up for any slight in- 
accuracies in his "entries." fjesides, he, 
like General Narvacz, was an Andalusiun. 
and tho Andalusiuns are regarded as the 
Gascons of Spain. Accordingly, twenty- 
four hours afterward, he prescnte^l the 
King with tho following little bill, which 
is a singular contrast to the motlcst account 
of his own personal expenditure handed 
in by George Washington to tho young 
Congress of America, after the conejusion 
of the struggle for independence, buccoss- 
fuUy maintained by the British Colonics 
against Goorgo III.. The famous "Cuen- 
tasdoGran Captain" is much celebrated 
in Spain, and may be profitably studied at 
the present moment. It runs as follows : 

Two hundred thousand scvcji hundred 
and thirty six ducats given to friars, nuns, 
and poor mendicants, that they might 
pray for the success of the Spanish arm?. 

One hundred million dur;it.s apenl on 
pickaxes, spades and hoes. 

Ten thousand ducats for perfumed gloves 
to preserve the troops from bad odors aris 
ing from the multitude of the enemy loft 
ilcad on the field. 

Ono hundred and seventy thousand du- 
cats lor renewing church bells destroyed 
in ringinc: peals. 

Fifty thousand ducat."* for brandy dis- 
tributed to the army on the day of the 

One million ducats for thanksgiving 

Three million ducats for masses for the 

Eight hundred thoiwand ducats for spies. 

And, lastly, one hundretl million ducats 
in compensation for my patience in listen- 
ing to a cheese-paring king, who demands 
accounta from a man who ban presentcfl 
him with a kingdom. 

The Bei) of the Oce.vk.— It is stated 
that soundings have been made in the 
North Atlantic to so great an extent that 
it is now possible to map out its be«l ciuite 
accurately. This ocean is a long trough 
of varying depth, extending, probably 
from pole to pole. Its bed follows the gen- 
eral structure of the land. Here anil there 
rocky peaks, like that of Tencrifle, or huge 
mountains of sand, such as the grand 
banks of Newfoundland, reach up to or be- 
yond tho surface. Between Ireland and 
Newfoundland there exists a remarkable 
plain, known as the telegraphic plateau, 
which is evidently a continuation of the 
great watershed which, betwe< n latitudes 
40deg., north and south, surrounds the 
earth, and divides the waters flowing north 
from those flowing south.

.1 correspondent in " Science Ciossip" 
describes his practice as follows : " When 
botany was my hobby, I adopted a plan 
for drying my specimens, which was both 
rapid and very cfleclual in preserving 
colors. I borrowed a tin dripping pan 
from the cook, which was just the size of 
my sheets of blotting paper. In this I laid 
the produce of the day s excursion between 
sheets of blotting paper, in the usual way, 
and, when tho piio was complete, I covered 
it over with a layer of common Kcouring 
sand half an inch thick, so that the tin 
dish appeared to be simply lull of sand. I 
then placed it on the kitchen fender, or on 
the hob, or in the oven, if it was not too 
hot, and in three or four hoars the whole 
batch of sDCcimens were perfectly dried. 
It required a little care to take them out 
at the right moment, when they were 
baked just enough, and not too much ; 
but thi.s care being given, tho success of 
the plain was pcrtcct. Many tpecimens 
still m my herbarium bear witness to the 
superiority of such rapid drying over the 
old method." 

Scalps and Cow-latcliors. 

Tho wliihtle of our locomotives, sound- 
ing daily towards the sunset, has been 
echoed by the war-whoop of the savage ; 
and after cenlurios of talking, cheating, 
and flghling.^e are brought lace to face 
with our ancient enemy, never so desperate 
and dangerous as now. ll is useless to 
discuss tho history of our dealings with 
the Indians, for tho mere purpose of phi- 
lanthropic declamation or recrimination. 
The question of to day is staring at us. 
How shall we answer it y Unless it be 
permanently settled, the postponement of 
It will only bring it up again in slill more 
troublesome form Once the Indians 
fought us w^ith bows and arrows only. 
Now, they have fire-arms as well , but our 
repeating rilles give us a great advantage. 
Shall we find them less Ibrmidable il', ten 
years from now, they declare 'war again, 
furnished 'with weapons equal to otirs '/ 
We do not presume to be wiser than oth- 
ers, ^nor to know any plan which will re- 
lievo us from our present embarrassment. 
But we think tho matter may bo simpli- 
fied by the plain statement of a few points 
which are fi.\ed, beyond doubt ; since many 
suggestions arc daily made, which a mo- 
ments consideration would .show to be im- 

1. The Pacific Uoad must and will be 
finished. Whatever may bt; tho wTongsof 
the Indian, it is not one of his rights to In- 
terfere with such a work as this. The 
nation is resolved ui>ou it ; and philanthro- 
pists, will, sooner or later, find reasons 
enough to justify all measures which may 
be found necessary in the exct'ution of this 

2. Tho usual routes of travel across the 
plains, including the new niilway, must 
and will be protected. 

;j. Merc reprisals upon tbo Indians, as a 
hostile foreign power, are not an efl'tclivo 
protection. They arc accustomed to such 
measures in their own fciuls, and consider 
them merely the mciJents of war When 
wckill ono Indian for the crimes of anoth- 
er, they retort with the murder of innocent 
wliite men ; and the bloody argument goes 
on, without possibility of decision. 

•1. Extermination of tho hostile Indians 
is a pure impossibility. They number 
about 1,000,000; and it isi !«aid that lied 
Cloud, the priiuipAl chief, can bring into 
tlio field ;{0,(X)0 warriors at once, of 
them mounted and well-armed. Before

very great. 

(». Treaties seem to be worj>e than use-

foreign nations f This fiction of independ- 
ence must bo l?jken away from them, in 
order tbat we imiy ftive them real security 
and liberty. For their sakte, as well a.s 
ours, Iho Indiana must become citizens of 
the United States. The West must be re- 
•ronstructcd, like the South. The protci- 
tion which the Frecdman's Bureau has 
given to the negro must also l)e jirovided 
lor the Indian. The crimes oflndias.'; must

It is related that Rufus Choate, having 
answered an invitation from a young men's 
association in an Eastern city to lecture 
before them, tho committee were actually 
at a loss to make out whether tho letter 
was an acceptance or a refu.9al. Afler 
much discussion over this dilemma, it was 
dcLcrmitKd to light the hall and proceed 
on the suppoiiitftm of an acceptance. For- 
tunately, Choato's presence on time proved 
that they had guessed correctly. The 
handwriting of the late Rev. Dr. Belbune, 
also, though remarkable for its neatness 
and uniformity, was nevertheless so pccu 
liar as to bo very difficult to read by one 
who was not fkmlliar with it. A lady who 
had lo8. a fiavoritc child once remarked 
that she had rectlved " a sweet letter of 
condolence from the doctor," adding the 
naive confession, " I hwto it must be beau- 
tiful, but 1 cannot read a word of it." 

A 4'llinate -where CoaBamptlres

tain Keller. 

Did It occur lo the companv which pro- 
poses to run a regular line of steamers up 
the Amazon from Para, for a distance of 
2,500 miles from Its mouth, that it will be 
able to transport passengers direct into 
the inland vallev ot Jauja, where the con- 
sumptive will obtain restoration ol health 
aiid a cure of a too generally incurable 
disease ': The voyage, though long, may 
be made almost without changing vessels, 
and will be found neither tedious nor de- 
bilitating. It will introduce travelers into 
some of the most magnificent scenery in 
tho world. It has been known to the na- 
tives from time immemorial, that a remov- 
al of consumptive patients, even in tho 
stage of well-marked ulceration and cavi- 
ties in the lungs, to tho valley of Juaja, at 
a height ol ten thousand feel above the 
sea, was followed by an almost invariable 
suspcn.sion of tho disease. This fact is 
corroborated by the experience of the 
physicians of Peru at the present time. 
From the statistics of Lima, published in 
1S5H, it appears that nearly eighty per 
cent, of the cases of consumption sent to 
tho Jauja valley arc cured. 

So forcibly has this fact been bnnight 
before the Peruvian Government that it 
has established in Ihw valley a militai-y 
hospital for consumptive patients, and cs 
pccially for native Indian soldiers, who, in 
the capital (Lima), are singularly prone to Of tho whole annual mortality 
of that city, no less than nearly twenty- 
lour per cent, is attributed to consumption. 
On the sea coast of Peru, as cm that of the 
Gulf of Mexico, incipient tubercular con- 
sumption is one of the commonest of 
pulmonary diseases. A share of the cur- 
ative power of Jauja valley may bo at- 
tributed to tho influence exerted on tho 
mind and nervous system generally by iUs 
scenery and a.ssocialions ; but, after mak- 
ing all allowances for these CJiuscs, the rc- 
.sults, as reported, are truly wonderful. 
Rain of four months in tho year makes up 
for the dry season of eight months in tho 
year, and serves to fertilize the land and 
yields tho happy inhabitants more food 
than they require. An influx of German, 
English and American visitors and settlers 
would drive those people to do something 
more than give up the eight dry months 
to amuseioents and feasting.— Philarldphia 



The Viiliiircni in the llitnalaya«. 

Dr. Andrew Leilh Adams, iu Iris '^Wan- 
dcnngs of a Naturalist in India," writes as 
follows of the vultures and other rapacious 
birds in tho Himalayas ; 

Amid all the grandeur of the Himalayas 
it is a most attractive sight to the natural 
if.t lo behold the vultures and other rapa- 
cious birds Bt)aring over the vast ravines 
and around tho tojta of tho migtity moun- 
tains. Let him chose a summer evening, 
with that clear sky almost characteristic ot 
the Himalayas, and just as the sun casts 
his last rays on the snow-clad mountains — 
when the quiet i.^ only broken by the cry 
of the eagle, tho bleal of the goal, or tho 
shrill pipo of the partridge— then tho vul- 
tures, kites and jackdaws may bo seen 
wheeling in vast circlea ; some are gliding 
along, apparently without an effort ; others 
appetir suspended motionless in the vast 
canopy of heaven ; while, careering in his 
majesty, the lammcrgcyer gathers up his 
great wings and 9woop.s downward, may- 
hap lo rifo again and join the medley he 
has ju-st left, or stretching forth his pin- 
ions lo their fullest extent, he sails along 
the mountain brow to the piojecting cliil 
on which his cyrio stands safe, for there 
who dare assail him ! 

After a bear or other large animal is 
killed, the hunter soon flnds himself sur- 
rounded by rapacious birds, where none 
were seen before ; they are observed dash- 
ing down the glenr*, and sailing in circles 
around his (iu>irry. Some sweep within a 
few yard,! of Inm, others arc soaring at 
higher elevations, and even at such vast 
altitudes Ihat the huge bearded vulture 
appears only as a Binali .speck in the blue 
sky, but gradually it become more distinct 
asits witfe gj'rations increase. 

It may gather itself up and close its 
wings, or dash in ono fell swoop hundreds 
of feel, and the next instant is seen 
pcrch'^^d ou the jutting rock beside him. 
Such, then, are tiio usual appearances ob- 
served soon afler the death of h large ani- 
mal, and tho hunter wonders whence all 
these great vultures and carrion-crows 
have come ; but if, immediately alter his 
noblo ibex has rolled down the crag, ho 
directs his eyes heavenward, he will ob- 
serve carrion crows or vultures, at various 
distances and elevations, sailing leisurely 
about, while the one nearest to him, ob- 
serving tho death of his quarry, instantly 
commences to descend ; then ono follows 
tho other until tho valley resounds with 
tho hoarse croaking of the crows, and tho 
air feels alive with them. Il is surprising 
the numbers that arc sometimes observed 
lo congregate on occasions ; 1 have 
pocn no less than sixty vultures and crows 
on and around the of a newly- 
kill'd benr.

iTIarrlage on the Cars. 

'1 Jic monottmy of railroad traveling was 
Komowhat relieved to thoKo on board a 
Grand Trunk train bound east onMonday- 
by a romantic episode, namely a wedding 
on tho cars! The lueliminary circum- 
slanccs are similar to those of thou.^ands 
of other matrimonial adventures, in which 
stern and unrelenting parents forbid the 
nuptials, and so drive the lovc-strickeu 
pair to the necessity of eloping. Tho par- 
ties to the j>re.^ent allair lesiflo about four 
miles back ol Colboruc, a small fetation on 
the Grand Trunk,|between Port Hope and 
King.ston, and to which place the runaway 
pair made their way on Sunday night with 
the intention of being marrial. The mar- 
riage license was, however, only received, 
when they were informed that the parents 
were in pursuit ; and being pushci for a 
resource lo escape, until the nuptual knot 
was tied, went on board the passing train, 
taking up a clorgj-man on the way, who 
being aware of a strong attachment on the 
part of the pair, sealed their bliss. The 
station was barely left, when Mr. Hunt, 
<onductor on the train was informed by 
the man of black cloth that it was his in- 
tention to celebrate a marriage on ]>oard, 
and pointing to the couple lobe made one, 
asked his assistance in obtaining lor them 
quarters together on tho crowded train. 
The gentlemanly conductor acquiesced, 
and tho ceremony was performed while 
the train dashed along at the rale of forty 
rniles an hour, tho pa&sengcrs forming a 
bridal party oi no small dimensions and 
certainly novel appearance ! In a short 
time the train reached Belleville, where 
the happy couple Ictl unid the hcarly con-

If^h at Breaks DownTouuBrlfiren. 

It is a commonly received notion that 
liard study is the unhealthy element of 
college life. But from tables of the mor- 
tality of Harvard University, collected by 
Professor Pierce from the last triennial 
catalogue, it is clearly demonstrated that 
the excess of deaths lor the first ten years 
after graduation is found In that portion of 
each class inferior in scholarship. Every 
one who haa been through the curriculum 
knows that where .Esctiuylus and political 
economy injure one, late hours snd rum 
punches use upVi dozen ; and that the two 
little fingers of Morpheus are heavier than 
the loins of Euclid. Dissapation is a swifX 
and sure destroyer, and every young man 
who follows it is as tho early flower ex- 

Kosed to untimely frost. Those v;ho have 
eon inveigled in the path of vice a'-c 
named " Legion," for they are many — 
enough to convince every novitiate that 
ho has no security that be shall escape a 
similar fate. A low hours of sleep each 
night, high living and plenty of "s.uashes" 
make war upon every function of the hu- 
man body. The brains, the heart, the 
lungs, the liver, tho spine, tho limbs, the 
bones, tho flesh— every part and faculty — 
are overtasked, worn and|wcakened by the 
teriffic energy of passion and appetite 
loosed from restraint, until, hke a dillapi- 
dalcd mansion, tho " earthly house of this 
tabernacle " falls into raiuous decay. Fast 
young men, right about! 

i»cB»Ity or Population. 

Even iu our most populous cities much 
more space is allotted to each individual 
than is ordinarily believed. Over-crowded 
London allows one square acre of land to 
every forty of its inhabitants. New York 
averages fifty-six persons per square acre, 
Philadelphia only seven. Boston, previous 
to its lalo enlargement, was the most 
crowded city in the United States, but 
every fitly-ninc of its inhabitants possessed 
on an average one square acre of land. 
Taking the area of ali the Stales, and ap- 
portioning it out to tho population there- 
of, it api>cars that every seventeen inhabi- 
tants have one square mile at their dispo- 
sal, while in the Territories there are four 
square miles to each inhabitant. In the 
year 186r», Belgium, England and Wales, 
and France, had three hundred and ninety- 
seven, threw hundred and sixty-seven, and 
one hundred and scvonty-six inhabitants 
the square mile respectively. If the Uni- 
Ictl States Wfis as densely populated as the 
former of these three countries, its inhabi- 
tants would number $1,100,000,000, which 
is a Iittlo cliflcrencc ol one hundred and 
eleven millions of people above the entire 
population of tho world.

Mrs. Stanley laid down iter sewing, and 
surveyed her pcice wiih an intense, half- 
mournful expiession. 

" Helen, do you tell nie that you arc ful- 
ly convinced that Mr. Burtield cherishes 
no hope— iii> fmcy— lliat you will ever bo 

his wife?" , , 

The scixior^ tl.'ished jafddly around thp

The elder hvly shook her head. 
" And I s.-^v, my dear Ilelen, thai, as a 
friend, you ought not now to receive his 
visits i at least, not to accept his attentions." 
Helen Allen star) el, and her fair face 
fio^ied a little. 

" Wliat, not vvhen we pertectly under- 
stand each other ?" 

" If 1 comprehend your reply, Mr. Lur- 
fleld has ])roposed to you?" eaid Mrs. Stan- 
ley, avoiding a direct reply to her neicc. 
" Yes," she replied. 

"And you have refused him ?" observed 
her aunt. 
" Yes," was the reply. 
" Y'ou think him, howovoi, au estimable 
young man— one whom it would be wrong 
in anywise to tritlc with ?" said Mrs. Stan- 

•' Most certainly I (.o.aunt. Johu Bur 
field is a good, a uobU; fellow; honorablo 
and generous- heal ted; intelligent and 
agreeable, too, as you have seen. I do not 
love him ; ho does not realise my ideal <tf 
the man I could marry ; but I esteem him 
vcrv much." 

"'Well, then, Helen, I have ouly to re 
peat my remark— you have no right to 
receive his attentions, because it is doing 
him a wrong." 
"I don't rcc how, aunt, observed 

Helen. ,. . ^. 

•' Because it is (miy keeping alive m nis 
heart a hope which can never be realised," 
said her aunt. " You know, I know, every- 
body who had IheJ slightest penetration, 
and saw you tosether for half an hour, 
would perceive that this young man was 
enamoured of you ; and it is wrong to in- 
dulge him with vonr s^)ciety when it only 
stimulates an aiVe-jlion which, by your 
own showing, vo>i cannot reciprocate It 
is only weaving about his hi art those 
chains which may cost him, you know not 
how much of 8urt'ering and agony to 

hearts are Hot 80 easily ^JToken or tht^r 
lives blighted as you imagine." 

"But they are sometimes, said Mrs. 
Stanley ; " and it is very shallow logic to 
excuse one's own faults because of other 
people's." , , .V . T 

" I know it, aunt, and I am sorry that i 
accepted Mr. Burfield's Invitation to ride 
out with him this afternoon." 

" Let it be the last time, Helen \o\x 
owe it to yourself and to him to make this 
separation entire." , x u »„ 

" But I should not like to lose. John as 
a friend, aunt," said Helen. " I like his 
society, and its dreadful didl here some- 

^''^Tam sorry," said Mrs. Stanley ; "but I 
should not be a very desirable aunt were 
I to counsel my niece to do wrong because 
it was plcasanter." •« u„ 

it was a smile, sweet and touchmg m Its 
solicitous tenderness, which was nowllttea 
to the face of Helen Allen. She was very 
fon.; of her aunt, generous and »mp"lfiive 
withal, and she sprang forward and threw 
her small white arms about the lady s neck, 
exclaiming, "Well, aunt, your niece would 
be a very unworthy one. if, with such a 
counsellor, she did n<.t do what was right ; 

*"At^liiat' moment Dr. Allen, Helen's 
father, entered the room to tell his sister 
and daughter that the roses for which they 
liad bet'u watching for several days had 
opened after the last night a rain ; the 
ladies hurried out to see the blossoms, ana 
the subject of their last half hour's conver- 
sation was dismisecd. 

Helen Allen was an intelligent and un- 
usually interesting girl, in her twenly- 
tomth year. If she had not positive 
beauty, she had grace and expression, 
which were far more attractive. Her fiice 
was a bright, sweet one, and her conversa- 
tional p6v.'ers, her natural sprightliness 
and adaptation made her a singular favor- 
ite with gentlemen. 

She vas aware of all this, but the knowl- 
edge had not spoiled her. Heart, con- 
science, principles-all these she pos- 
sessed ; but she had a great sense of ap- 
and was too fond ol admira- 

probation, •< 

'Ticlcn was an only child ; lor ten years 
her father hatl been a widower, and he 
never saw a fault in her, and indulged her 
lightest whim. No one can be surrounded 
constantly with an atmosphere of admira- 
tion anil ilatlcry without some moral ener- 
vation following, as the necessary result, 
and Helen Allen had not escaped the in- 
tluonces of such a nurture. . . , . 

btill her instincts for truth and right 
were very strong, and her father's sister, 
who exchanged a visit with her every 
year, exerted a most healthful influence 
over the opening years of her niece s life. 

Mr^ Stanley, left childless and a widow, 
was a noble Christian woman— a woman 
who in daily Idc strove to realise her 
hi"'hc3t ideals; one whose nature sorrow 
had exalted and clarified. She had passed 
the meridian of her life, but even in old 
ago she possessed the fresh Uowmg sym- 
pathies of her youth. 

Mrs Stanley had never met the young 
merchant, John Burfleld, until that morn- 
ing; for though he had been lor two years 
a visitor at her brother's, it happened that 
he was absent from home when the lady 
was with her niece the previous year. 

He was a young man of most pleasing 
address, a favorite with all who knew h m ; 
generous, confiding, Avilh deoo and cndur 
ing afTcclions. . 

It never entered the heart or mind ol 
Helen Allen that she was in anywise re- 
anoufible because these aflections had been 
lavished on her. She was just the stvle of 
woman to suit John Burfleld, and she 
could not help being pleased with his 

Still, she always felt a lack of strength 

and-torce in his character, which excluded 

any deep regard on her part, for Helen 

was one of those women whose heart de- 

Ihese in the man she should 


husband must, to her Imagination, 

yon, tWnkiiq? probably it would gratify 
vou • so I accepted the invitaUon, and 
here' I am. Wtat makes you look so 
sober, Helen r" , „ 

"Nothing that I can tell you, Isabel, 
she replied. "Somehow I don^t care about 
taking this ride." , ^ . . , 

"Don't like taking it!" said Isabel 
" What will Mr. Burfleld say ? You will 
break his heart." , 

"Don't say that, Isabel! Mr. Burfleld 
and I are only friends;" and the look of 
seriousness deepened into pain. 

" Well, all I've got to say, Helen, is, that 
it is not John Burfield's fault if he is only 
your friend," said Isabel, watching Helen 
narrowly, as she arranged her thtck brown 
plaits of hair. ... , , 

To Helen Allen's honor be it recorded 
that she preserved inviolate the secret ot 
John Burfield's aflection for her, and that 
her friend had only suspcctea it frr)m the 
young man's manner. 

" Well, granting what you say is true, 
Isabel, it is not right to encourage his at- 
tentions," said Helen, speakmg more to 
herself than to her auditor. 

" Yes. it is right enough to receive him. 
If he knows your real feelings towards him, 
vou absurd little puss !" said Isabel. " A 
woman may make a friend of her lover 
without doing any harm I'm sure. ' 

" But may i)e it is doing wrong to hmi— 
wrong if in anywise he indulges a hope 
which must end in bitterness and disap 
pointment ?" 

Helen's tones placed an interrogation at 
the end of her sentence. 

" Nonsense !" exclaimed her guest, with 
her light. «iuick, heartless laugh. "\ou 
are so squeamish, Helen. Men,B hearts 
are tougher than you suspect, and they 11 
bear a little pressure just like India-rubber. 
Rest assured that your lovers will not shoot 
or drown themselves, because you refuse 
them ; and the best way generally is to 
smooth the denial as much as possible, and 
keep it out of sight in general. You don t 
know much about men, Helen." 

These words sank into the young girl s 
heart, and Helen Allen asked herself if, af- 
ter all, her friend's eentimcnts were not 
very near the truth. r t i . 

Of course her aunt wa.<» one of the best 
and noblest of women- everybody knew 
that ; but then, her ideas of life and con- 
duct were all so refined and exalted that it 
was almost impossible to carry them out in 
every day practical life. 

She wasn't going to disturb herself any 
more about the matter. John Burfield 
knew his position with regard to her, and 
if he chose to visit her it was his own fault. 
Men's hearts were not so easily broken at 
ter all. 

Helen Allen's thoughts ran on after this 
fashion as she arranged her shawl and hat 
before the glass, for her friend had excused 
herself, and had gone down stairs to enter- 
tain the young merchant until Helen pre- 
sented herself. , , , „ 

The two girls had been school-fellows , 
and the intimacy commenced when they 
were children, had never been suspended. 
Isabel Eyre was a brilliant, dashing ^irl. 
with no high ideals of standards of hfe; 
thoroughly worldly in all her pursuits and 
aims. She was accomplished after the 
fashionable standard ; she had grace, wit, 
and tact, but of heart or high principles 
very little. 

Helen Allen was vastly her superior in 
all the moral ranpe of feeling and pur- 
pose; but the influenc- of a companion 
like Isabel Eyre over a young, impressible 
nature could be only iuiurious, (H|-Hicially 
when its whole force was hroughl to bear 
on IJie weakest side of Helen's chaiHCter; 
and this was a sense "f approbation, 
and love of admiration. 

Mrs. Stanley letX her neicc in a few days 
after the conversation which we have re- 
corded, and the subject was not renewed 
by the ladies— indeed, Helen avoided it. 

John Burfield continued his visits as be- 
fore, and they grew more frctiuent ; lor the 
year was falling into Winter, and Helen 
fouad her country home a little dull, for it 
was not always convenient ^to visit town, 

opening blossoms, and of all the ^oy of 
the year's awakening. 

The young man looked worn and pale, 
as though he had gone through some sharp

" Break of!' this acquaintance at tmce, 
replied Mrs. Stanley ; " for, disguise it, my 
dear child, to yourself with what petty 
sophistries you may, lovt^ of admiration is 
at the bottom of all tht.s. You smile upon 
this young man, vou receive his alien- 
tions, you talk and jest with him ; he looks 
in your face, and feeds anew the love with 
whicb he regards you. It is not enough 
to say that nc understands your true senti- 
ments ; while y(m treat him as you did this 
morning, the man will h^ivo.hope, and the 
truer and nobler he is, the harder at last 
will it be to surrender you." 

" I never looked at it in ttiil Irght be 
lore," said Helen. 

She spoke half to herself, this lime, 
slowly revolving the sci.ssors sronivl her 

" I dare say not," somewhat !»a<ily sub- 
joiaed Mrs. Stanley, resuming her sewing, 
and stitching rapidiy for a few moments ; 
then dropping her work, she continued, 
with an earnestness that flushed her laded 
cheeks, and lent a strange charm to her 
grave, gentle face, "I cannot understand 
how It is that so many of my sex are so 
culpably U> blame in their social relations 
with men. They talk and jest, and, what 
is a thousand times worse, they act as if a 
man's heart was a thing made chiefly for 
their amusement. I have f^ccn women,

at fault, m this one. Do you know, 
Helen, that it is a serious thing, and one 
for which we shall be held accountable, to 
trifle with another's aflections?" 

" I am not trifling with John Burfield," 
asseverated Helen, with strong feeling in 
every word she uttered. " I should scorn, 
aunt, to carry on a flirtation with any 

man." . , 

" Call things by their right names, my 
child," said her aunt. " Be honest with

high, just after your own pattern. Their 

or any 
had broken a 

eracelUl person and pleasing social gif^ 
would never be. But Helen was too kind- 
hearted, and really thoueht loo much of 
the vovmg man, to wound him more than 
was' necessary , and her sympathies were 
greatly stirred when she .«aw the agony 
her refusal cost him. 

It was u. very gentle, yet, to do her jus 
lice, a decided refusal ; but she made an 
egregi<ni3 mistake when she desired him 
lo visit her at all times as a friend, a privi- 
lege of which he was only too glad to avail 
himself; so she and the lover she had re- 
fused were thrown constantly together on 
terms of greater intimacy than ever. 

He brought her flowers, and books, and 
fruit ; he took her to ride and to walk ; he 
was her usual attendant at a sail, or party, 
or pic nic ; she sang for him her sweetest 
songs, and there was no week in which 
John Burfield did not visit her ; and as 
Helen's home was a few miles from town, 
the young merchant's horse always re- 
mained for several hours at the front gate 
of the doctor's pleasant cottage ; and yet 
all these things were done in the name of 
friendship; and Helen Allen made herself 
believe that these relations were altogether 
hHrml'-ss— that John Burfleld under8to«xt 
her feeliugs, and there was nothing that 
«hould prevent his being her friend. 

Of course there was not ; but Helen 
Allen knew very well that it was a moral 
iinpo.=sihility for John Burfield to be more 
than this. She read the utter refutation 
ot her pretty, plausible sophistry in every 
tone ot his voice, and every glance of his 
eyes, and she knew perfectly well that his 
heart still clung to the idol of his worship; 
but Helen was wilfully blind. She would 
not see that the indtdgence of her society 
was doing to him the most cruel wrong 
that a woman could do to a true and sin- 
cere man ; and she did not look down into 
the silent chambers of her own heart, and 
see how vanity and love of admiration 
were warping her judgment, and sUmula- 
ling her to a course of action which the 
better part of her nature must have risen 
un and condemned. For the admiration 
of John Burfield was very pleasant to her. 
She knew very well the smiles and tones, 
the words and gknces, which kept him 
at her side ; and she knew, too, that his 
heart could never bo attracted toward any 
other woman, so long as she held her old 
influence otct him ; and yet, because his 
adoration was so gratifying to her s«lf- 
lovc, she permitted her victim to continue 
in her toils. . . ^^, 

But Mrs. Stanley's plain, straightfor 
ward questions and arguments liad aroused 
her niece's conscience, and it was with a 
pang of remorse she dressed herself for 
the ride she had promised to take with the 
young merchant that afternoon. 

She heard a carriage stop at the gate as 
fchc stowl before her mirror, her head rest- 
ing on her hand, and her conduct for the 
last year rising up before her in its real 
features, and appalling her with re- 

The moment after the carriage wheels 
had stopped, a young lady sprang up the 
stairs and bounded into the room where 
Ilelen stowl before her mirror. She was 
a brilliant, haughty -looking girl, abotit 
Helen's age, dressed in that elaborate stvle 
which iKist suited bcr. She had a face 
which you might have admired, but not 


" Why, Isalwl !" exclaimed Helen, lifting 
her head from her hand. 

"Are you not glad to see me, Helen . 
she asked. 

" Very," was the cordial response. 

" I met Mr. Burfield this morning whem 
I was out on a shopping tour," said the 
fair, haughty lady, throwing herself into 
a chair, and fanning herself with a rare 
sandal-wood fan ; " and I availed myself of 
the opportunity to make all the inquiries 
about you that I could. The young gen- 
tleman informed mo that he had made an 
engagement to ride out with you this af- 
ternoon, and invited me to accompany 

field became a sort of necessity. In the ab- 
sence of any one who eclipsed him. Helen s 
conscience was not however always at ease. 
There were glances and pressures of the 
hand at meeting and parting, which she 
could not misinterpret ; and there were 
times when the shadow of John Burfield's 
foreheail, and the involuntary sighs that 
crept up from his heart, told his hostess, as 
no words could have done, of the doubt 
and pain that wrung it. 

But, on the whole the y^iug lover was 
usually cheerful, or fidl of high spirits in 
the presence of his enchantress. How 
could he help living on the hope which all 
her actions kept alive, no matter what her 
words said ? But at last, the end came. 
Late in the Winter, Helen Allen met, on a 
brief visit to town, a young lawyer, in 
whom she at once became interestod. 

The attraction was mutual, and in the 
spring the young gentleman was a very fre- 
quent guest at her father's. John Burfield 
had been absent about a month, and it so 
happened that he did not see the young 
lawyer, or suspect the true state of things, 
for some time. But one evening the two 
gentlemen met at the residence of Doctor 
Allen. Love has singular acuteness, and, 
though his hostess was polite as ever, still 
John Burfleld felt there was an indescriba- 
ble change i* her manner, and that ho was 
not, as heretofore, the most favored guest. 
He left early, but before his departure he 
said to her, when alone in the conservatory 
— " You know we made an engagement last 
week, to gel up a small pic nic party. Are 
you engaged next Friday Helen ? " 

" Yes John," ehe replied with a little 
fluttering in her check ; " I have promised 
Mr. Paulding to join a similar party on 
that day, so I am afraid we must defer 
ours tor another week."—" As you lik«, 
said Mr. Burfleld. 

There was something hoarse and hard 
in the monosylables, which made Helen 
look up to his face It was very pale ; 
and about the mouth, and in the eyes, there 
was a look of terrible suflfering. 

" What is the matter, John ? ' exclaimed 
the lady, in real alarm. . 

" Oh Helen, you don't know!— you don t 
know ! " said he ; and then, as if afraid to 
trust himself ferther, he hurried away. 
But Helen caught that last wild, ahoQost 
frantic glance, that his ryes shot on her as 
they parted. 

8h« could not misunderstand that and a 
sharp pang smote her heart and her fair 
face was uneasy and troubled as she re- 
turned to the drawing-room. 

" What is the matter?" asked the young 
lawyer, as he roee up, and took the small 
hands of his hostess, and looked nernestly 
and fondly in her face. 

«• Nothing— at least, nothing that 1 can 
tell you, Mr. Paulding," she replied, and a 
bright smile chased the gloom from her 
brown eyes, 

conflict during the last two days ; but he 
said, with his old manner-" I have come 
to take you to a picnic, arranged by my 
sister, and this lime I can have no excuse, 

"You must, Mr. Burfield, for I am ex- 
pecting company." 

Helen said this very relutanlly : but 
there was no help for it ; and Mr. Pauld- 
ing had assured her he shauld be with her 
before two o'clock. . 

" Helen, are you expecting Mr. Paulding 
this afternoon V" 

Her face made answer before her lips 
did—" I think he may be here." 
" And are you going to marry that man ; 
" It is too bad to question mc in this way, 
Mr. Burfield," said Helen, hiding her face, 
burning with blushes. 

John Burfield did not heed her words; 
ho seized both her hands, and fairly crush- 
ed them in his own. 

" Oh Helen Allen !" he groaned, lu a 
voice that would have melted to pity a 
heart far harder than hishsteners, 1 
had not su.spcctcd this!— I cannot believe 
it I" 

" Why John, you distress me," she said. 
" Don't act so. You know I told you long 
ago that there was no hope.'' 

" But I did hope, Helen Allen, 
Burfield. " How could it, with yo 
face, that I was reafty to fall down and 
worship, before me every few days, and 
your lips full of smiles, as your voice was 
full of welcomes. I was a looi, perhaps; 
but I couldn't help it, so long as you al- 
lowed me the blessed sight of you; and 
now— oh Ilelen ! I'm a proud man, and lis 
hard that you should see me like this ; but 
it would have been belter if I had died- 
better if I had died." 

With those words he gave her one wild 
look, threw his arms about her, and kissed 
her forehead over and over, and then he 
was gone, and Helen sat all alone, weeping 
the bitterest tears of her life. 

John Burfleld mounted his horse and 
dashed swiftly homeward. Alas ! in that 
bitterest agony of his life, he had no faitli 
in the great love that would have healed 
his broken si«int; he had made to himself 
an earthly idol, and when it was broken 
he fell that in all the world there was no 
rest for his soul. 

Madness had tired hi'* heart and brain, 
and on his way homo his glance just graz- 
ed the still deep river, its bright waters 
asleep »)etwoen the fringes of swamp wd- 
lows and with that glance his purpose 
was taken ! He hurried to his oflice, wrote 
a brief note to his widowed mother, and 
rode back to the banks of the river. There 
was a heavy plunge, and may Heaven have 
mercy upon the soul of John Burfield ! 

The news came lo Helen Allen as she sat 
with her lover that night in the same roona 
where she and John Burfield had passed 
so many pleasant hours together. I 

It was a terrible blow to her ; still, the 
circumstances were not very accurately re- 
nortcd, and Helen believed that the young 
man had accidentally fallen into the river, 
and been drowned; but slie passed a sleep- 
less night, thinking of their last interview 
on earth. The next day she received a 
message from Mrs. Burfield, the mother of 
the dead man, requesting that she would 
call on her before ntght. 

Helen had only met the lady once, but 
she knew that John had often spoken of 
her to his mother, and she suppos^ lliat 
it war. on this account that the afllicted 
woman desired to see her, and receive her 
sympathy; and, with a sad heart, the 
young giri rotleover to the house ol mourn- 

"Come with mc," said the stricken moth- 
er, alter she liad looked sternly a moment 
in Helen's face; and she led her into the 
next room, where he lay, as if in slumber, 
the dark locks clustering about his fore- 
head and the features settled into such 
pale peacefulness, that it did not seem his 
1 young manhood had been thus suddenly 
"stricken out of him. 

" He was all that I had in the world— 
my precious boy, and I loved him belter 
than my own life ; and you have laid him 
there. Miss Allen," continued Mrs. Bur 
field. " There, don't start and look at me

for 'tis tofi late ; but if it hadn't been for 
you, his poor mother wouldn't be looking 
this day upon his dead countenance. \ ou 
broke his heart with your pretty face and 
\ our bright winning way. 1 was afraid ol 
U for a whole year ; for I saw that ho wor- 
shiiiped you, though he never said much 
about It, and I used to hint it sometimes 
but there would always come a lo«jk into 
his face that J couldn't bear to see, and he 
would say, * Don't say that, mother : Hel 
en Allen wotdd never let me visit her so, 
and treat mo as she does, it she did not 
care for me, no matter what she may say. 
But there he lies now, and I want you to 
feel that you've kUlcd my.son, and broken 
his mother's heart. " 

Mrs Burfield was an old woman, and 
John was the youngest of the four boys 
over whom her mother heart had poured 
the old cry of Rachel, of Ramah. Helen 
Allen uttered no word while standing be- 
fore the dead man ; but her face was pale 
as his She went silently out of the house, 
but before she reached the carriage where 
her father waited for her, she fell in -k swoon 
on the pavement. 

For days afterwards they trembled for 
her reason. Her aunt was sent for, and 
dav and night she comforted the remorse- 
stricken girl, and listened to her ( caselcss 
self upbraidings. . ., u 

"You told me what to do, aunt, she 
said ; " but 1 loved his admiration, and I 
knew it was this all the time, although I 
wculdn't admit it to myself, which made 
me keep him at my side ; and now I must 
carry through life the thought that I am 
his murderer !" , • u 

Mrs. Stanley did all that it wm in her 
power to do. She went to Mrs. Burfleld, 
and painted her niece's agony m such 
words, that the mourning mother s heart 
was melted, and she went to Helen, and 
told her she forgave her for the wrong she 
had done her son. , . , « 

At last Mrs. Stanley's counsels took root 
in the heart of her mece, and repentance 
look the place of remorse, and she rose up 
from her sick bed a wiser and a better wo-

Seneca Nation of Indians look place at 
New Lawn, on thc Cattaraugus Reserva-

has been kept up by the Indians from time 
immemorial, and h decidedly unique in its 
features. Thc Dunkirk Journal gives the 
following description of the "CireCQ Corn 
Dance," which may be interesting to eomc 
of ciur readers -. - , • . i 

The men and women form a circle, in lac 
middle of which thc musicians arc seated. 
Thc musical instruments generally coneist 
of a Email keg (in modern times oyster 
kegs have been made available for the 
purpose) minus one head, with a woou- 
chuck skin stretched over thc open end, 
and a small turtle shell with a handle at- 
tached, and a woodchuck skm extended 
from edge to edge on the concave side. 
The former being n sort of drum, is thUE^.p- 
cd with a single sUck, and dried peas arc 
put in to give the latter a rattlin? nou'c. 

The music moves slowly at first, and thc 
dancers only walk. Presently the meas- 
ure grows more lively and the Indians be- 
gin to dance, alternatively hopping twice 
upon one foot and swing from side to i,idc, 
while the women all facing outward, 
manage by moving their toes outward 
and inward, to move around in thc reviv- 
ing circle >vithout lifting their feet from

ever looking demurely to thc floor, ami 
with their arms hanging motionless by 
their sides, still glide onward, as if borne 
along by some niieans independent of their 
own powers of loconioiiou. At latt when 
the dancing bas become as \h cly as possi- 
ble, and even Indian nerves and muscles 
are jaded by intense action, at a given sig-

•* WilTyou tell me whether this Mr. Bur- 
fleld is a triend, or more thah this ?" he 
asked; for the young lawyer was ill at 
ease on witnessing the evident familiarity 
of the lady and her guest. 

" Oh, he is only a fnend," she repUed. 
" We have known each other intimately 
lor years, and of course he feels quite at 
home here." 

The lover was satisfied, and a little later 
Helen listened to words which were the 
gwoeteet her ear had ever caught, and 
which had filled her heart, like the jubi- 
lant chime ot marriage bells ; and in the 
first joy of her betroihal, there stole across 
her no memory of the true love sue had 
wroMed. or the heart that her carelessness 
and ^ity had broken. But that night in 
her dreams, the pale agonised face ot John 
MflH appeared before her ; and witn a 
start she woke up ; and. in the darkness, 
her pillow was wot with tears of sorrow 
and self-reproach. 

Two days later thc young merchant caU- 
ed on Helen again. It was an afternoon 
ia the early June, full of fragrance, of 


Mie acquainted her lovur with all the 
circumstances of her intimacy with John 
Burfleld, but he tried to soften her seli- 
uobraidings, and his love never permitted 
him to see that she did not falsely accuse 
herself. They were married, and Ilelen 
Paulding was happy with thc husband ot 
her youth ; but there was one memory 
which threw a dark shadow over many of 
the hours of her life. . . 

She was an earnest. Christian woman, a 
loving wife, a devoted mother ; for in that 
long, bitter season of remorse she had 
learaed that the only healing for the sin- 
ner and the sufferer is in the Toice of the 
Master, flowing sweetly and tenderly 
down through its long path of centuries, 
" Thy faith hath saved thee ; go m peace. 

" Yes, 

sire." , , 

•' Well, sir, yes. I am glad to sec you. 
Perhaps yoo wo«xi like U) hav a rume and 
wash yo bans befo yu eat dinner ana ar- 
range yo klasscs." 

I told him I wood. 

"Tojnsun," he savs lo the gentlemau 
that brot me up, " be kino cnuf to assine 
this yung man to a rume." And then 
turnin to mo he says. " Mr. , what is 

yo naim, sur V" „ 

"Ward," Ireplied—" Artemus >\ard. 
"Yes. Well, Mr. Ward, make yoselt 
ctinifu liable in yo rume, plceze, until about 
f.xM-lock this artcrnoon. Then yoo wdl 
bo kaulcd to dinna, arter which I will as 
sine yoo yo klasscs, an yoo can go to wcrk 
at wimce." 

I thanked him, and then Mr. Tomsun, 
cxchaingin a pleasant smile with Mr. l ail, 
led me ofl" to a rume in a distant portiou 
ov the bildiu. Opinin the do and Icedin 
me in he sais, " Hear, I truit, yoo will 
fine every thing convccnicnt to maik yoo 
cumfutablc. Hear is a sofa, warter and 
towels. Hear is a razor and strop. And

He then bowed very lo and withdroo.

lutable retreet. So, pulUn oil mi boots and 
80X and kotc and vcss, and lain them aroun 
on diflVTcnt cheers, I took a shaiv and then 
awash. I then drunk some wine, and lit 
asiggai, and tret chin out onto mi betl, 1 
begun to reflcc on the value ov Iccrnin all 
the goodnese ov Mr. Yail. Fmdin the 
wine pretty good, I put scvril bottles oy it 
ou a cheer necr the bed, so I could get it 
easy, and then I drunk and smouked at mi 
Ic/ure. Finally, I fell to .sleep, and arller 
a protracted knap I rose, feebng sum un-

wuz pultinon a clecn shurt, which, the

But takin me roodly by the throte, he 
choked mi utterance, and in a few mo-

a policeman, 1 appealed to him for redress. 
" Yes," sais he, " you need redressm. Cum

In the discussion of thc In.stilutc t ar- 
mers Club, of New York, thc question of 
pasturing and soiling cattle was remarked 
upon with reference to their coit and ad- 
vantages. .1 . C. Brctshneils, of Erie Co., 
New York, said where land is worth $1U0 
per acre pasturing will not pay. If worth 
only $;i5 or $40 per acre noiling will not 
pay as well as pasturing. 

PoTATOKs should never bo dug until the 
skin i^ linn, and if thowing any H-n ol 
rot, let them rciu-.iiu in the soil as late iis 
possible, as it is scarcely worth while to 
dig out those thtt will decay when put in 
bins. Dig only in dry weather, leaving 
the tubers in the eun lon^ enough to get 
completely dried before picking them uji. 
Bruise as little as possible in handling, and 
store only in dry bins. 

Fi.ouK Makino.— The qutstiou huw 
much wheat does it take to make a barrel 
of Hour is oflen asked, and the answer is 
of a general character, " fivo bushels arc 
allowed." At the annual Fair of thc Du- 
biKiue county (Iowa) Agricultural Society 
in 18C6, a premium of ^.i was oflered for 
the best barrel of flour made from winter 
wheat, and also the same made from spring 
wheat. A firm entered one barrel each, 
accompanied with thc statement that si.v- 
Iccu bushels of winter wheat yielded three 
barrels and one hundred and i luce pounds 
of flour— at thc rate of four bushels and 
flfleen pounds of w beat to tho|barrcl. Of 
spring wheat, fitty bushels yicMod eleven 
barrels of flour, being four bushels and 
thirty-two pounds lo the barrel. Thc 
wheat was a fnir quality and no more. 

Soii.iNG Cows v.s. Pasxukiko.— An ex- 
periment was made by a member of thc 
Royal Academy of ApriouUure, of Prus- 
Bia, extending iarough fccven years, to test 
the comparative merits of soiling (stable 
feeding) and jiasiuring. Thc pasturing 
averaged 1,580 quarts per cow, lor the 
whole seven years; and thc average ot 
the soiling nlan for Ihe pamo time was 
8,442 quarts per cow— the cows in both 
cases being about thc same in natural pro- 
duction of milk. Thi.", of course, docs 
not prove that such a great diflercnce, 
coull result from soiling generally. The 
quality of pai^lurcs, «r the feed, care and 
treatment of the animals when subjected 
to stable fee<liag would produce dillcrcnt 
results ; but il is a well established fact that 
a good deal more milk can be obtained by 
soiling than by pasturing, and at consider- 
able less expense, taking the value of ma- 
nure saved, use of land for pasture?, etc., 
into consideration.

is reached, and then a reservoir ot loose 
stone and water lune mortar, about four 
feet deep, is made in thc bottom, so mor- 
tared up on the sides as to prevent the 
possibility of dirt or quicksand getting m. 
The well consists of large tile, commonly 
used for sewers, put down within six 
inches of tho bottom, and the earth filled 
in. This leaves plenty of room lor the 
pump, and the ton wants closing up care- 
fully. This kind of well never needs 
cleaning, because, if properly made, no dirt 
can ever get in. Thc «ost is considerably 
less than that of ordinury wells, and a well 
can bo put down a great deal gu irkcr.

Far restoring hair upon bald hcnd 
(from whatever cause it may have fallen 
out) and forcing a growth of hair upon 
tlie face, it has no eiiual. It will force 
the btard to grow uivon the smoothest 
face in from five to eight weeks, or hair 
upon bald heads la from two to three 
inonth.^. A few ignorant practitioners 
iaea.sserted that there is nothing t'.iat 
will force or hasten the growth of the 
hair or beard. Tlieir as.«ertioiis are false, 
:l8 thousands of living witnesses (from 
their ow^n experience) can bear witness. 
But tiiany will sny. Iiow are we to distin- 
rjuish the genuine from the spurious? It 
oi-rtain'y is diniculr, o.'^ nine-tenths of the 
different I'rcparation.s advertised for the

you may have already thrown away large 
amounts in their purchase. To such we 
would say, try the Ueparator Capilli ; it 
will you nothing unless it fully comes

Hegelabls Sicilian Haii fisnewei 

ITdn stood the test of seven years 
trial by the public ; and no prepa- 
ration for the hair yet disrorercd 
will produce the same bcncjicuil 
rcsultii. It is a new scientific dis- 
coi'crij, combininu the most power- 
fal and res^oratire agents in the 
FUL COLOR. It makes the scalp 
tvltitcand clean; cares tlandruff 
and humors, aud falUng out of th| 
hair; and will mahe it yrowupon 
bald heads, except in very aged 
persons, as it furnishes the nutri- 
tive principle by which the hair 
is nourished and supported. It 
inalces the hair moist, soft, and 
glos-af, and is unsurpassed as a 
HAIR* DRESSING. It is the cheapest 
preparation ever offered to the 
public, as one bottle tvill acconi' 
plish more and last longer than 
three bottles of any other prepara^ 

tion. , ^ , 

If is recommended and itsea by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The wonderful results produced 
by our Sicilian .Hair lienewer 
have iudured many to manufac- 
ture preparations for the JTair, 
under various names ; and in 
order to induce the trade and the 
public to purchase their com- 
pounds, the)/ hare resorted to false- 
hoods, bi/ claiming th^-y were 
former partners, or had some con- 
nection with our Mr. JIall, and 
their preparation was similar to 
ours. Do not de deceived by them! 
rurchaso the original : it has 
never been equalled. Our Treatise 
on the Hair, with certificates, sent 
free bi/ mail. See that each bottle 
hfis our private Itevenue Stamp 
over the fop of the bottle. All oth- 
ers are intit<itions.

The Hoard of County Comniissioners 
Insured ! 1 1 



L;f«i insurance is considered \r some to 
if a line thing. Uut we have always eoi.- 
widered if an iusnrance eomimny «»n make 
money by life insurance after pacing great 
expenses, tl*e fcrnon hiiuself could save 
■uioaey aud save the expenses too by insur- 
ing himself. But -of <-«u?s« this is not tlie 
*;(;« wh«re one person gets injured and 
ttuolher person pays fix it. 

The Board of County Commisjioners have 
teen insured for $y.OOO, aud we presume 
thoy will make uionc-y at it, as the county 
cf Scott has paid the expeiJses. The *'Hoa. ' 
Deacon Fudge is county auorney aud also 
uD agent fur several iusur^i.-ue eonipiiiiies.^ 
^2 county attorney, he adv\«e*'tLe bi>anl oi 
-connty commissioners that it in legal lor 
ihem to be insured and Ibr Scott county to 
jjay lh« expenses. Aii insurance sigeiit, he 
ii/^ei several pulieies of insurance to the 
board of couuiy cojumissioncrs of ii*:ua 
county to the sf.m of §y,OUO, at au.expeuse 
of f.'l^l. But who pays ibis expense ? The 
board of commissioners are i..surtd, but the 
county of Scott it culled upon by the county 
•ttorcey for the $231, and the people's 
UiWcy is actually paid to him. This is an 
outrage that ought uol tj be submitted to. 
ScoU coiiniy cert* iidy has no moBey 
epare fopiuauiing the board of county com- 
iniscioners, even if it is paid upon liie ad- 
-. ice cf a presumntuou*" fool. Upon lentuing. 
that so much money had been p^id f»r such 

of the Oytinty auditor tyi-the reason why 
' It appears "that at a luctnl naeelv.:g et the 
board of county cfmniissiouecs, J. L. 
Mac Donald, who is county- attorney and 
»l30 an insurance agent, apjvised the com- 
miaaioner.n to have the Clpurt House insured. 
It also appears that t'.i.^ Court House had 
been insured fwr two" or three' Tears and that 
the time does net expire v.uiil ui,">iovember- 
Tbere theu was, yy need of the Court House 
being insured until ihat time was up. Ihe 
commissioners directed the Court House to 
bt insured, but ciirtaiuly did not expew-t to 
have a double insurance at the same time. 
But this J. iL. AiacI>onald. «e»inj{ as iniur- 
• nce agent, prepares polick* *'f inburaiiee 
on the Court House, commencing on the 
bjnt of October, whereby he in&ures *'The 

some oversight forgot to mcntioa his mas- 
terly leap from the cars whdc under full 
headway. Taking such an advantage of a 
sleeping sheriff could hardly h.ive been ex- 
pected, but the hacking ol those vile bonds 
from his limbs was certainly commendable. 
Miss ^pectator darkly alludes to boffns 
county orders, but we suppose she refers to 
for^'cd notes. The $oOO reward she men- 
tions, we Ulicve is the exact sum offered 
for his Sivfe return ta >iew Hampshire, the 
c.iuutry he- "left for his country's good i"" 
l)ut the amount of thiit recognizance, for 
which leg U»il was substituted, was a much 
larijer sum. 

Now, Miss .Spectator, since you have 
commenceH telling family secrets, you wiil 
not mind telling who stole the Court House 
himber. You need not tell who stole and 

eat widow M 's i*ig, for that is generally 

known. If jou please, however, you may 
tvU ns about .selline that land to the poor 

> be vaa 
^*be satr- 

The Spectator says the connty paid us 
$100 for 2,000 Asse.ssor blanks. Now, 
Mios Spectator, yon are slightly mistaken. 
We furnished the county 2,0'Jl) .issessor 
blanks, which were worth $150, but the 
county has not paid ns anything far them. 
These blanks arc just four timos as large as 
the Treasure, "s nceipts, but they contain 
aboHt twenty times ns many printed words. 
This was about the first 'y>h we furnished 
the county. We knew but liiil^ abmt the 
valueof piinted matter, !>i>t in vde our b w 
gain with the County Auditor to fmui. h 
that job for the same rates the county had 
been paying Russell & McDonald duriiiij 
the winter fur county printing. W'he;» t^.is 
job was delivered, lh» retonls (.f the eouii'v 
were Pxnmine<l and it was found that lluf- 
sell & McDonald hud charged the county 
$12.50 a thousand for the Treasurer's n • 
ccipts. The Assessors" blanks were four 
times as large and contained twenty timet

County a^ainsl loss or damage ^<y fire on 
their three story brick baildin^, ^'v*'<^ and 
occupied by Vitni as a Court ilouae." No*v 
ih«; absurdity and fraudulent of tti^s 
insurance will be manliest when we consid. 
cr that the Court House is ihfe iiroperty of 
Scott county, and not of llw idurd of com- 
tnissiouers. Scott county i* a public corpo- 
ration, and as such is the owsier of 1t»e 
Court House, and is capable of conlr;-.i;Ling 
end being insured. But itsa t^rr: coininis- 
aioneis that are*»«iTcd, not th«s County.— 
The coDCHSsioners have no moie ti^le to 
the Court House than any other tax payers. 
If the Court Hcuse burn;;, the county caii"" 
cot recover undtr these policies, becausj 
Scott county is not injured. Insurance 
companies will not pay -.-'J.OOD when they 
' can avoid it. Scott ccanty could not sue 
the insurance cfunpunies, because .^cott 
.county is not insured. This all-wise, the 
♦*Eon." Deacon Tud^o, of course knew ihi.-. 
Tbo fraud of this maUer is *vldcnt, when 
we consider that be was actiuij for the in- 
iurance companies. Insurance companica 
would rather iasue bad policies than good 
once, then the) are sure to have nothing to 
pay. The uU-wise— llifi •' Hon:' Deacon 
Fudge— of course will not plead ignorance. 
He has taxeu $231 from the tax ridden 
pe'oplc upon a bo^us insurance. He knew 
be wua doing this. Of course the insurance 
companies pay hiin well for looking to their 
inlercEt. But the fraud will appear more 
manifest when it la considt-red that the 
inaurancte will be void also, becansc 
there is a previous insurance on th» eauie 
property. This fact, by the very terms of 
the new poHcifS, makes the new insurance 
void. The Coitft Uouse is described as a; 
three story brick building ; but it is Hot a 
ihrea atory brick building. The maiq 
building has two aloriea of brick and a 
Blone baaemeut story, and the wings whcra 
t'le Treasurer'* office aud oflice of iiegiater 
of Deeds are, are onlr on» atory, with a 
b.iseuent. Tbi«i would render the insurance

cr.i« *b«re one periou gets insured and

The Board of County Commissioners have 
l-ecn i.isurcd for $y,000, and we presume 
luoy will make mu:uy at it, as ihe touniy 
vf ^JCCtt has paid the expeJiscs. The "Hoa. 
D::acon Fudge is county altorney and aUo 
».n r-^trit for several insurance companies. 
^2 county attorney, lie advises' tJie board ol 
ccnnty commissioners thai it is legal lor 
them to be insured and for Scott county to 
Y&y th« expenses. As insuranec agent, he 
iastiei sover-ii policies of insurance to the 
fcoarJ of couLly tommi-i^ioncri ot Scoit 
sounty to the aum of $t),000, at an e.\peuse

His judgment may be relied on, as he hai , sure 
tried both and neither was able to control j 
bis morements. She speaks of his retreat 
toW.iTds the east in the cars, but through 
some oversight forgot to mcntloa his mas- 
terly leap from the cars whde under full

sleeping sheriff could hardly have been ex- 
pected, but tlie hacki:i-r of those vile bonds 
from his limbs was certainly commendable.

Now, Miss .Spectator, since you have 
commenced tilling family secrets, you will 
not Hiind telling wlio stole the Court House

The Spectator says thu county paid us 
$100 for 2,000 Asse.ssor blanks. Now, 
Mi.,s Spectator, yon are slightly mistaken. 
We furnished the county l',0:)0 assessor 
blanks, which were worth $150, but the 
county has not paid us anything for them. 
These' blanks arc just four times ai large as 
ihe Treusurei's r. ceipt.<, but thoy contain 
about twenty times as many printed words. 
Thi.s was .I'bout the first job we furnished 
the county. We knew but liiil.! a!) )at Ihe 
value of printed matter, but inideourbtr'

ibe absurdity and fraudulent purpose of this 
insurance will be manifest when we consid- 
er that the Court House is the projierty of 
Scott county, and not of die Jjoard of com- 
Tcisaiouers. Scolt county is a public corpo- 
ration, and as such is the o«ncr of the 
Court House, and is capable of coulr.'.cu^;,'

The conciissioners have no moie l^^le to 
the Court House than any other tax payers.

Scott county is not insured. Insurance 
companies will not pay .'J.OOO vihen they

— John Howe once observed two men 
in a violent passion. Their mutual curs-

Therefore, during the seven weeks, or 
nearly so, which the Exhibition is still to 
remain open, a million and a half of franca

of nine millions required to cover the ex- 
penditure. Tliat this result will be ob-

further inducements are held out to them 
of short and disphanua C(^tumc3, and 
that the most deserving among them (read 
the prettiest) will be grouped on the front 
of the stage. This is a new style of recruit-

tone of morale of the present day. 

— A mendicant living alone in a wretch 
cd hut at Courbevoie, near Paris, in the 
midst of the most abject misery and intol- 
erable privations, was lately found dead on 
the floor of his filthy hovel, through an 
aperture in which he would occasionally 
protrude his arm to receive the food chari- 
tably offered him by some neighbors who 
commisserated his forlorn condition. A 
medical examination proved that the man 
had died of starvation. A sum of 30f in 
copper coin having been accidentally found 
in the abode of human misery, a further 
search was made, and immediately under 
thereof was discovered, carefully wrapped 
up in many folds of dirty rags, no less than 
18,000fin gold (£720). 

The Paris Pairie, of the 26th of August, 
contained the following : The preliminary 
soundings, commenceil four months ago, 
are complete. The cable will be laid from 
Brest to St. Pierre Miquelon, it having 
been ascertained that the bottom of the 
ocean along that line is favorable. From 
St. Pierre it will go along the coast of New 
Brunswick and the shores of Maine, New 
Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecti- 
cut. A direct lino from Brest to New 
York would offer many difficulties, owing 
to the tremendous depth of some parts of 
the ocean, where soundings have not been 
found. The immersion of the cabl^%ow 
making in London is to begin next May, 
and the Great Eastern is to be employed 
to lay it. It is hoped that a month will 
suffice for the work, and that in July, 1888, 
at the farthest, France and the European 
continent will be in direct telegraphic 
communication with America.

sharply, " I declare, it is really too bad 
that the conductor will not call the police.

from the car and shot down street like an

A. Hlameme Execution. 

The Baiigkok Monitor gives the follow- 
ing account of an execution at the Siamese 
capital : " At the time of our arrival a 
number of Buddha's priests were in the 
act of praying over the swords of the exe- 
cutioners, with lights burning on an altar 
erected immediately in the rear of the ex- 
ecution. After vairious doleful chants by 
the priests, accompanied by several pieces 
of colored cloths, knotted together, being 

[>ut into the hands of the condemned and 
ed to the hands of the priests, the execu- 
tioners, who were employed during this 
time driving stakes and arranging tbe cords 
in proper position, now commenced to 
take the ladder-shaped bend by which each 
prisoner was confined from hia hands and 
neck, and led each severally to his stake, 
w. ere his arms and legs were bound with 
strong withes, and a bamboo spear erected 
in front of each to receive the head after 
execution. Another chant, and then the 
prisoners received mouthtuls of fruits and 
preserves, and some pungent scented liquor 
from a bottle. Their executioners com- 
posed their heads In an upright position, 
and placed small joss lights before them ; 
and to all scemiag recommended them to 
pray, which they did fervently ; but their 
executioners crawling, catlike, from the 
covered walks behind, pinched and nudged 
the backs of their heads, to see if their 
presence of mind would allow them to re- 
ceive the fatal blows without moving their 
hCAds. This being ascertained, their ears 
were immediately filled with mud. and a 
mark made on the neck of each convert 
with the same material, .to guide the com- 
ing stroke, including a repetition of the 
nudging and pinching. All being now 
ready, the cxecuti< ncrs again stole from 
the covered walk int 'le rear, each flourish} 
ing his sword ; and ^ ow tbe blows began 
to fall. One old hano • c well performed 
his duty that his victim!:. I'lead rolled at his 
feet the first stroke, but all the rest took 
an amount of chopping and sawing which 
had thecfl'ect of oisgusting away most ot 
the white spectators who came to witness 
the horrifying spectacle. The heads of 
the condemned were now erected on 
spears. One old man's, we noticed, kept 
its ensanguined jaws open and moving 
several seconds after death. The chains 
were now removed from their legs by 
chopping off the heel ends of each lifeless 
trunk, and we came away with disgusted 
and enervated feelings from this sanguina- 
ry scene."

Woman Carries "Woman. 

ISFIED, what's the difference. 
A person was brought before the Police 
Court at Syracuse the other day, on a 
charge of wearing male apparel while 
being a female, of making love to the Sy- 
racuse belles "on false pretenses," and 
marrying a woman, etc. There is no 
doubt of her femininity, though her coun- 
terfeit of a man is said to have been per- 
fect. She is English, is supposed to be 
about forty years of age, went under the 
name of Alfred Clark, and received re- 
mittances from England, part of which 
goes to the support of a sister in Syracuse. 
In reply to the question, " Are you a male 
or female ? " she answered : " Your officers 
can tell you," or " have told you." She 
refused to give any more direct answer to 
the inquiry in relation to her sex, and was 
committed for further examination. 

▲ few weeks since she assumed the garb 
of a man, and made the acquaintance of a 
young lady named Miss Lewis. After a 
brief courtship they were married, and the 

Earties have since resided together as hus- 
and and wife. The marriage ceremony 
was performed about three weeks since, 
and the bride's father, suspecting there 
was something wrong about his new son- 
in-law, obtained a private interview, and 
informed her of his suspicion that she was 
not what she pretended to be. At first she 
claimed that she was a man, but on closer 

?[ue8tionlng finally admitted that she was a 
emale. She has marked features, promi- 
nent nose, high cheek bones, bUu^ hair, 
worn long (for a man) and curling at the 
end, and apparently brushed and oiled 
with care. She wears a glazed cap, blue 
coat, blue shirt, dark vest, snuff-colored 
pants, gaiter boots, and a shawl over her 
shoulders, speaks with considerable confi- 
dence, but is not very communicative. 

It is understood that when this eccentric 
woman first came to the house of the 
bnde's father she was dressed in female 
apparel, and her clothing was changed to 
man's attire with the Knowledge of the 
fisunily. The probability is that the family 
supposed her woman's dress was a disguise, 
and that she was assuming the proper ha- 
biliments of her sex. The lady's £ather 
was averse to the match, but the bride 
clings to her woman husband, and claims 
that the arrest is a conspiracy against 
them. They were allowed to meet in one 
of the ante-rooms ot the police office, and 
embraced each other with the greatest 
marks of affection.

A Horse Car Incident. 

The horse car is the witness of varied 
life and incident, which are often not only 
interestmg, but worthy the compUment of 
a little printer's ink. An incident occurred 
in Boston on Saturday, which is deserrhig 
of a paragraph. A lady passen^ discov- 
ered that her pooket had been picked of its 
portemonnaie and contents, induding a 
generous supply of cash for shopping and 
some other pleasant possessicms. On 
learning this disagreeable fishct, she said, 

The correspondent of the St. Louis 
DenuKrat was one of the invited guests at 
a dog feast given by tho Indian chief 
" Spotted Tail." He thus c^cscribcs the 
svmposium : 

" As the occasion was one which prom- 
ised novelty we readily accepted. On our 
arrival we found the supplies of Indian 
delicacies commensurate with the quality 
of the guests. The cooking was simple 
enough, without salt or condiment. We 
all squatted ourselves on the ground, and 
the old and young squaws acted as servi- 
tors for the occasion . 

" Before proceeding, the great calumet 
ot peace was passed around. Whenever 
this calumet is brought forth it is a token of 
great respect, adorned as it is with brass 
tacks, blue and golden feathers, beads of 
coral, and carved in the most unique man- 
ner. After the pipe had been passed 
around the circle, the chief commenced the 
feast by eating, regardless of any of us. 

" There was all kinds ot wild meat spread 
out, and the most delicious of them all was 
the dog meat. In huge dishes of wotxl 
might bo seen a juicy lump of buffalo, a 
hindqtiarterof an antelope, elk meat, veni- 
son, wild duckp, geese, and turkeys, sur- 
rounded by dishes of wild beans, Indian 
corn, wild rice, and some strange herbs, 
which appeared to be very palatable. 
These various vegetables were boiled 
separately with a sprinkling of buffato 
grease, giving the whole an extremely 
unctlous, yet savory appearance 

" In the centre of the circle were two 
dogs, of a dropsical apparance, the hair 
merely cut close, and roasted entire, intcs 
tines and all Over this excellent, delicate 
food was poured the gravy — dog's grease. 
This exquisite dripping had been collected 
in bone dishes. The dogs appeared plump 
and yotmg, and all seemed to pay especial 
attention to the three young pups, which 
was to them what dessert is to the civil- 
ized whites. For the sake of appearing 
satisfied with our surroundings, we par- 
took of a very small piece, merely out of 
curiosity, and could we but conquer our 
prejudicee, we might have made a very 
hearty meal ; as It was, we were satisfied. 

" "Hie meat appeared to be of a brown- 
ish color, somewhat lesembling porpoise 
meat. If we might judge by the oily 
streaks about the capacious mouths of the 
chiefs, and the pleasure which sparkled in 
their eyes, we would [pronounce dog meat 

" After the feast was over there were 
three canine skeletons left on their respec- 
tive dishes, forlcm looking remnants of 
dogs that once barked. Tomahawks, an- 
swering the purpose of pipes, as well as 
instruments of bloody deeds, were handed 
to us, and as this was an important epoch 
in Spotted Tail's life, he caused them to be 
fiUea with the leaf of nicotiang quadrival- 
vis. Generally, the tobacco they use is 
composed of the dried leaves of the saka- 
koml plant (arbutus ovaursi), or kinikin- 
nlck, a willow bark. Till a late hour we 
smoked a tomahawk that was once steep- 
ed in gory brains, and under the soothing 
influence of the tobacco, wove bright In- 
dian legends." 

The Laugh of Womex. — A woman has 
no natural gift more bewitching than a 
sweet laugh. It is like the sound of flutes 
on the water. It leaps Ttoto. her in a clear, 
sparkling rill ; and the heart that hears it 
fuels as If bathod in the cool, exhilarating 
spring. Have vou ever pursued an unseen 
fugitive through the trees, led on by a fairy 
laugh, now here, now there, now lost, now 
found? We have; and we are pursuing 
that wandering voice to this day. Some- 
times It comes to us in the midst of care, 
or sorrow, or irksome business, and then 
we turn away and listen, and here it ring- 
ing away the evil spirits of mind. How 
much we owe to that sweet laugh ! It turns 
prose ;o poetry \ it flings flowers to sun- 
shine over the darkness of the wood in 
which we are traveling ; it touches with 
light even our sleep, which is bo matt 
than the image of death, but is consumed 
with dreams that are the shadows of Im-

A SEK^ Ol^XNXERaBTXJib EXrE^t^CBitls. 

While cholera \an riiging iii Esgland 
last year, tlfe medi^ia offlcer of tfte Privy 
Councfi, ia^view df the uncertainty pre. 
vailing e«|tsfeany joints connected with the 
disease, and the principles on which it 
ought to be treated, obtained the sanction 
of the Privy Council to orgamze methodi- 
cal attempts, " by the researches and ob- 
servations of skilled persons, to narrow. If 
possible, tbe limits of those large un- 
certainties." One of these branches of in- 
quiry was "the veriflcation of alleged ex- 
perimentia prooft of the commnnkmility 
of cholera,''^ and it was intrusted to Dr. 
Btndon Sbmderson, whose report thereon 
is appended to the ninth annual report of 
the medical officer of the Privy Council 
recently published. 

Dr. Sanderson has just made his report, 
which includes the results of some inter- 
esting experiments upon animalp, following 
the course adopted In 1854 by Dr. Thiersch. 
Strips of filter paper were steeped In the 
cholera matter at certain intervals after its 
removal from the body during life, or after 
death, and from these papers (when dry) 
the quantity of solid matter taken up by 
each strip was determined by the dif- 
ference in weight before and after immer- 
sion. The material was thus obtained in 
every stage of decomposition, and in a 
form for administration in extremely small 
quantities. The animals selected tor ex- 
periment were white mice. 

Altogether 148 mice were operated upon, 
and of these 53 were more or less affected 
and 31 died. Dr. Sanderson thinks that 
although the Infective power of the poison 
was greatest in the third stage of Its de- 
composition, yet in some instances its foil 
virulence was manifest on the second day, 
notably in the experiments for testing the 
communicability of the disease from one 
animal to another, wherein out of 27 ani- 
mals operated upon, 14 became ill and 13 
died. The material used in these oases was 
administered within 48 hours of the death 
of the animal from which it was taken. 

The cholera matter having killed one 
series of mice, it was found that the bodies 
of these animals, when devoured by a sec- 
ond series, communicated the original form 
of disease in undiminished lurulcnce, the 
mortality raging as high as fifty-seven per 
cent. Carrying on tbe experiment to a third 
series, a mortality of fifty per cent, re- 
sulted. "We have, therefore," says Dr. 
Sanderson, "evidence that the disease pro- 
duced in mice by the administration of 
cholera material in small doses, can be 
readily communicated from the affected 
animals toothers of the same species, and 
that when so communicated it la quite as 
fatal as when received primarily. 

As regards tho phenoraera of choltra 
infliction In mice during life, the most con- 
stant indication that an animal was under 
tho Influence of the poison was tho loss of 
mobility and excitability. 

" At first the animal remains quiet, as if 
listless or drowsy, but it can be easily 
roused into activity ; subsec^uently all re- 
action ceases. Whenever this condition of 
collapse exists in a well marked degree, it 
13 found that tbe temperature ot the body 
i:^ correspondingly diminished. Thus in 
animals so affected, readings of the ther- 
mometer were obtained as much as twenty 
degrees below the natural standard. So 
extraordinary a loss of temperature seemed 
at first so Incredible that I was inclined to 
believe that some error of observation had 
been committed, but repeated measure- 
ments confirmed the accuracy of the re- 
sults. In general a very low temperature 
was a certain precursor of death, but In two 
remarkable instances recovery took place 
after the animals had remained motionless 
and apparently lifeless, with a temperature 
below 80 degrees for more than a day." 

Dr. Sanderson's experiments with f;uinea 
pigs, hedgehogs, pigeons, and dog?, do not 
appear to have pelded any important sum of 
results. But Mr. Simon, In a comment on 
the report remarks : 

" The Importance of the agent as against 
one sort of animal is no disproof of Its 
virulence against other sorts. The positive 
result of Tniersch's original experiments 
on mice, and of the experiments of Drs. 
Sanderson and Thirsch, would retain 
their full value in regard to the animals ex- 
perimented on, even if all other animals 
should prove unsusceptible of the influence; 
and that value, in explanation of the facts 
of human infection, is, in my opmion, con- 
clusive. ^. ^ _

enaployment of females : 

The women, by the way, do nearly all 
the trading in Ireland. At our hotel a 
woman shows you to your room, you p<iy 
your bill to a woman, and you are politely 
bowed out of the house by the housekeep- 
er. It is rare to find a retail store in Cork 
where a female is not seen behinc the 
counter. We are told that the same thing 
prevails throughout the British provinces. 
The reason given for employing them is 
that theii foUles are not only less numer- 
ous, but much lower priced. Females 
may sport fifty-dollar mantles, but they 
never go on fifty dollar " busts." Females 
never spend a whole week's wages on bil- 
liard tables. Girls never " put the party 
through," kick up a row, ani get dragged 
to the station house. Fast horses they 
avoid, and roulette tables and game cocks. 
Who ever saw a female hanging round a 
gambling table, or betting her last five 
dollars that she can tell where the " little 
joker" is? Whoever saw a female clerk, 
after the store was shut, rambling up 
Broadway, " raising thunder," and break- 
ing things? Whoever saw a respectable 
girl knocking over dry goods boxes and 
standing "SI. P.'s" on their heads? No 
one, and yet respectable young men do 
these things nightly. When was a female 
clerk ever arrested for having a " suspi- 
cious character " locked up in the store 
with her after midnight ? In view of all 
these facts, is it any wonder that the mer- 
chants on this side run to female clerks t

Kinc Dacobert** EflTVa* 

The Paris correspondent of ihi^Natwn, 
states that the guests of the Abbe Dehis, 
curate ot the parish of St. Eloi, in the 
Faubourg St. Antonie dined a few days ago 
on fowls whose immediate ancestor? fig- 
ured, he says, on the table of the great 
Prankish King Dagobert. When the Abbe 
Denis laid the first stone of the church and 
presbytery he had built by his own exer- 
tions, on the site of the old chateau and 
gardens of Dagobert, a hen's nest full of 
eggs was discovered beneath the ruins ot 
the ancient building. These eggs, more 
than twelve hundred years old, were about 
to be thrown away by the laborers, when 
the Abbe, lemembering that wheat has 
been grown from grain found in Egypt, in 
mummies, dating back from the time of 
the Pharaohs, bethought him that possibly 
there might still be life in these eggs. A 
savant of the institute, coosaltcd at once 
in reference to these precious reUra of an 
age when there was, as yet, no France to 
detest " Perfidious Albion" or to be jeal- 
ous of Prussia and needle guas, advised 
their being forthwith confided to a hen of 
approved success in the material capacity. 
This advice having been acted upon, the 
good cure and his friends had the delight 
of witnessing, twenty-one days afterward, 
the hatching of a fine brood of chickens, the 
direct progeny of the denizens of King 
Dagobert's bam yard. The fcwls thus ob- 
Uined have been carefully kept from any 
misalliance with their congeners of less 
ancient blood ; and tiie Abbe has now a 
yard so well repknSshed with " King Dago- 
bert fowls" tut he not only suppUes his 
own larder with poultry of this iDustnous

I approach you in a timid frame of mind 
to day, with a few hesitating words on the 
subject of hotel clerks. 

And I appMl to you, O omniscience, Is 
there a greater person on earth than the 
hotel clerk? 

I have come to the conclusion there is 


Earthly p<5lehtate8, ^Moiophers, warri- 
ors and poets dwarf in compa^-iso:;. 

My eyes are open to the enormity of my 
ignorannce and I freely own that I did 
wrong in asking that young man, with the 
nice hair and stunning vest, if he would 
gfve me a room on the second floor. I do 
not blame him that he looked at me 
through hM eye-glasses, with a tooth-pick 
in hia mouth, for ten minutes: that he 
then said be would be bade in a minute 
and went ofl" to play billiards ; that he was 

fonc half an hour and came back and read 
alf a dozen notes ftom widows In the 
house ; that he then looked up and asked 
me what I wanted ; and that he sent me 
to the flfth story. All this 1 ought to have 

But the look he gave me was cruel. The 
glance which commenced at the top of my 
hat and went to the toe of my boot, was too 
much. Was it not enough to evinee his 
superiority by ordering me to the fifth 
story ? Why cxi)Ose me to that cbllllne 
look ? I know that I should have begged 
that nice young man's pardon for speaking 
to him, but one cannot ajways remember 
hotel etiquette. 

And I went up to my den in the fifth 
story thoroughly convinced that I had no 
rights a hoteTclerk was bound to respect, 
and I did not care to look at him after that, 
and 1 paid my bill through the proxy ol a 
man and a brother who knew the hotel 
clerk better than I did. 

Next to being Chan oi Tartary, or Ty- 
coon of Japan,! would be a hotel clerk. 
He is an object of interest only second to 
Barnum's gorilla— a being so far elevated 
above the petty strifes and cares ot the 
world that he can look down from his alti- 
tude upon us all and smilingly consign us 
to the devil if it so please him— a com- 
pound of arrogance, self-complacency, 
don't-care-a-cuasativeness, and utter disre- 
gard of ordinary human beings, so strong- 
ly compounded that it becomes sublime. 

And I always revere sublimity of this 
description, when he sent me to the fifth 
story with a carpet bag in each hand, I 
did not complain. I kissed the hand that 

All that he does is done with an air of 
superiority. Do you desire to ascertain 
what time the train departs ? He refers 
you to the office of the company, and don't 
know where it is. Do you want to know 
where Bangs & Co. do business? He 
waves you to a directory of some other city 
and replaces his whole mind on his tooth- 
pick. Ask him for some tickets to an eve- 
ning's performance at the theatre, and he 
will crush you with a glance, as much as 
to say, do I look like a man in a box- 

He is master ot all he surveys, absolute 
in his sway, wonderful in his make up, 
express and admirable in his functions. 
He knows everybody, and has a front seat 
at the opera. When he puts his whole 
mind on a carpet bag he can tell at a 
glance whether it contains a shirt and a 
toothbrush or a flrst-class trousseau, and 
he can grade men into their rooms by 
their cx)at buttons with the utmost ease. 

Ordinary impudence usually gets snub- 
bod, but there does not live a man with 
courage enough to snub the hotel clerk. 
His impudence is allied to genius. It has 
taken him years to reach It, and the pain- 
ful hours of study he has given to the 
characteristics of the tooth-pick arc some- 
thing wonderful to think of. 

When I retire from the pomps and vani- 
ties of this world. O Tnburu, and have no 
further interest in sublunary matters, I 
hope to be a hotel clerk. I can conceive 
of no epitaph more impressive than the 
touching words — " He was a hotey;lerk."

From tho New York Sun, Oct. 10. 
Throughout the day, yesterday, the es- 
tablishment of Mr. Brady, 609 Broadway, 
was thronged with visitors, the most of 
whom, as on former days, had been at- 
tracted thither in order to gratify their 
curiosity by an inspection of the dresses 
and other articles belonging to Mrs. Lin- 
coln, which are there exhibited for sale. 
Ind(!ed, the 'crowd which called at the 
rooms yesterday greatly exceeded in num- 
ber that of any former day since the re- 
ceipt of the goods, the spacious exhibition 
rooms being packed to suffocation, especi- 
ally during the afternoon, when no less 
than one thousand visitors were in constant 
attendance at the apartments. The visitors 
are confined to no particular class of the 
community, well-dressed exquisites and 
fashionably-attired females ot Fifth and 
Madison avenues mingling with the plain 
ly.clad mechanic and unpretending shop 
girl, all of whom arc allowed an equal 
privilege ot handhng, tossing and mixing 
the shawls and dresses — a privilege which 
they have not been slow to improve, as is 
testified by the crumpled appearance of 
some of the articles. Among the visitors 
who called at the rooms yesterday after- 
noon, were Baron Von Kusseron, of the 
Prussian Legation, Hon. Daniel E. Sickles, 
Mile. Guiscp'pina Morlacchi, tho danseuse, 
and other notables. With the exception 
of one or two of the cheapest dresses, two 
shawls, including one camel's hair, and a 
few minor pieces of jewelry, none of the 
articles have as yet been disposed of, the 
valuable shawls still occupying their posi- 
tions across the back of the chairs ; the five 
silk and satin dresses still lying wnnkled 
with constant handling, upon the sofa ; the 
cheipcr dresses lying In a promiscuous 
heap upon the piano, and which the com- 
bined eflbrts of the two female attendants 
are insufficient to keep in order ; and the 
valuable point lace sbunwls, diamonds and 
furs, still remain untouched in the show 
cases. During a conversation between Mr. 
Brady and a Sun reporter yesterday, the 
former stated that he had despaired of ever 
selling the goods at private sale, attribut- 
ing the dilitoriness to the high figures at 
which the articles had been priced by ilrs. 
Lincoln, who doubtless had calculated 
more upon the historical interest attached 
to the goods, than their real value for 
wearing purposes. Regarding the second 
invoice of goods, which Mrs.lancoln had 
contemplated sending to Mr. Brady from 
Chicago, the gentleman stated that, owing 
to the difficulty experienced in disposing 
of the lot at present on hand, no further 
consignments would be made. 

signed to run Dciween vievcnmu and Chi- 
cago, and called respectively " The Forest 
City" and "Tbe Garden City." The for- 
mer of these being on exhibition at Al- 
bany, on Thursday, Sept. 19, we availed 
ourselves of an opportunity to examine 
the Chariot Palace. Glancing at the ex- 
terior, we remark on each side five plate- 
fjlass windows, each a single pane nearly 
OUT feet square, and sixteen smaller ones, 
arranged beneath as so many ventilators. 
Entering, we find the interior arrange- 
ment very ingenious. From the door at 
each end of the car runs an aisle termina- 
ting in a grand, central saloon, ten feet 
square, carpeted with an exquisite Axmin- 
ster rug, and furnished with consummate 
elegance and taste. The prevailinc color 
is blue ; the wood-work rosewood, with 
costly inlayings. Two settees, with four 
easy chairs of curious design, four mir- 
rors, inlaid paper- racks, semicircular 
marble brackets, surmounted by miniature 
etagcres, and a rich center table, complete 
the furniture of the room. We notice, 
also, bronze medallions, monograms 
wrought in various woods, and an inlaid 
ceiling of white holly wood, gilded chande- 
lier, sliver water-pitcher, &c., &c. On one 
side of this central saloon is a room cush- 
ioned in sliver leather, and in a corres- 
ponding position opposite, another in 
green, but similar in arrangement. Each 
apariment has two settees and two easy 
chairs, with a center table. In the silver 
room the wood-work is of rosewood, black 
walnut, curled maple, and satin wood ; in 
the green room, birdseye maple, .ralnut, 
and rosewood. Beyond these apartments 
stand on one end of the car the golden 
room, and on the other the purple room. 
Each has settees, so adjusted that by de- 
taching the cuds, a party may surround a 
table, which, made with elaborate inlaid 
work, may be rolled into the center of the 
room and unfolded. Here are mirrors set 
in bronze frames, bronze racks for light 
baggage, and every convenience which can 
promote a traveler's comfort and case. 
Both these superb cars are nothing less 
than palaces on wheels, and In every way 
are deserving the high distinction of 
bringing near together the metropolis of 
the West and the most beautiful city of 
the Union. — New York Tribune.

Desperation of an Office (>iceker. 

A patriotic citizen anxious to serve his 
country, has for a long time been trying to 
get some one to help him to a place in the 
Boston Custom House. He made numer- 
ous applications, t)ut the right influence 
could not be obtained. At last a friend 
told him that a letter from a well-known 
dentist would " fix him all right." The 
office seeker and dentist had been acquain- 
tances, but had not met for many years. 
Our hero took a station near the office of 
the operator, intending to intenept him in 
his passage in or out. After a few days 
the "waits" l>crame tedious, and the pro- 
prietor had not been seen, neither was 
there among his patrons any one who 
could be approached. At last, m a fit of 
desperation, and seeing no alternative, he 
resolved to part with a tooth and secure 
his letter. "The magnitude of his sacrifice 
may be inferred from the fact that his 
stock of grinders was limited to five. He 
had the molar extracted, and then made 
known his errand. The demist gave him 
a letter to the Collector, which he deliver- 
ed. He was met with the cheering infor- 
mation that tbe applicants were several 
hundreds and m* po'-ltions open. His feel- 
ings at finding that the vacancy in his jaw 
haA failed to give him an opportunity to 
ffil a vacancy at the receipt of customs 
may be imagined but cannot be described. 
An excruciating toothache would have 
been ecstacy in comparison.

. : .1 more than a child. Ever since I 
ct.'uld remcuQber, Aunt Katharine, with 
her dark dreaa, smooth hair, and gentle 
-. had taken care ot me ; and wnen I 
grew iut<5 a tall girl of fifteen, old enough 
to go to kissing parties and have young

ed through the hall into the road. Halt 
way to the school house I met my teacher, 
Mr. Charles Devereux. 

" Good morning, Mis« Addle. Recila 
tionsall ready?" 

" Yes, sir," I answertd, and ho passed 
on ah«ad. 1 sauntered on slowly, think- 
ing of my aunt Katharine. I thought it 
would be a nice plan lor her to be mar- 
rid. The next thounht was, who would 
ghe marry V 

There were only half a dozen unmarriotl 
nxi d men in the village. Aunt 

Ka. wastwenty-scvcn, and of course 

ahe would't marr>' a very young man. 1 
rapidly enumerated the half dozen eligible 
ouM and their suitability for my plan. 
Lawyer Hyde, thirty, rich, aristocratic and 
stingy. Mr. Leighton, thirtyhve, hand- 
some, good, well-off but a widower ; and 
I've heard aunl Katharine say she did not 
like widowers. Mr, Picrson, twenty eight, 
handsome, wealthy, but too last ; she 
would not like him. Dr. Jarvis, thirty -six, 
small, crabbed, miserable, and unbearable 
generally. Mr. Howe, tco homely to be 
Ihought'of ; and Captain Haynes, with his 

Jellow, bushy whiskers, and nine thousand 
ollars worth of mortgaged property, which 
he is always talking about, worse yet. 
Rither a sorry array. 

Just then the 8oh>xl-bell rang, and 1 
went In to my books and Mr. Charles Dev- 
ereux— a^a-d twenty-eight, handsome, intel- 
ligent, wuu-educated and unmarried. The 
cwss in intellectual philosophy was called 
tiist, and I thought.I had carefully commit 
led my lesson to memory the evening be- 
fore, my late thoughts had quite driven all 
remembrance of it from my head, and rny 
1 :. was imperfect. Mr. Uevereux 

.rprisedly at me, but said nothing. 
In French grammar my performance wa.s 
btill worse. 

" Miss Addle," said Mr. Devereux, as I 
passed by him on my way to my seat. " do 
you have any trouble with those Frenc'n 
verbs in learning vour lesson r" 
"Yes, a little,' I replied. 
" You want a little reviewing, 1 think. 
if I have time, I will call in at your house 
this evenine and help you a little while 
yoM are studying." 

Mr Dt^ert'ux knew that 1 always studied 
: ng, and bad several times called 
■ aa hour in assisting me with 
a parliculariy difficult task designed for 
liic next day's recitation. So 1 was not 
surprised lo hear him make this offer, 
though a little a.shamed of the cause of it, 
as my failure ha<i resulted from my willful 
inattention and carelessness 1 thanked 
him, however, with a Hushed face, and 
went to my seal, liul it was not entirely 
shame that flushed ray lace. 

As I expected, Mr. Devereux came in the 
■ ; to explain my French lesson. But 
'ni find me alone. Aunt Katharine 
sal 'Able sewing, and looked even 

har •■ than in the morning. My 

heart gave a flutter of impatient anticipa- 
tion every time Mr. Devereux looked at 
her. and after the lessons were through I 
dil my best to make her talk to please him. 
My aunt always ta.ked well, but she quite 
excelled herself in conversation that night. 
1 saw that Mr. Devereux was interested, 
aad I was delighted with the success of my 
secret plan. 
In the course of the evening, John Aft- 

hrey, my Iovlt, came i;; 
clainiC'! .'olra a? my l.ivci 

g mat 
and I a mero rhila of a 
teen, he had bcauxod rrif to parlies and 
concerts all one wint r, and told me a 
dozen timefl that 1 wat; the sweetest, pret- 
tiest, most lovely girl in all Hartford. .So 
that when John came in, I went and sat 
down by him in a cosy corner, and left 
Aunt Katharine to entertain Mr. Dcvercu.v 
—a plan which I thought at tirat secmetl 
to suit all around. 

But after a little time I saw John casting 
uncasv glances toward the place where 
Mr. D>evereux, looking superbly liandsomo, 
sat talking with my aunt. 

"You needn't be jealous of him, John," 
I said; "he's only my teacher." 

John started and leaned back in his seal 
without saying a word. 

Neither of the gentlemen ilaycd very 
late, John going away directly alter Mr. 
Devereux, and I went to my n)om elated 
with my prosperity, or rather ihe proa- 
peri tv of my plans. 

I d"id not need assistance in my studies 
before Mr. Duvereux came again, and after 
a short time it came to bo a regular thing 
fur him to spend an evening once or twice 
a week with us. W' ith us, 1 say, because I 
could see that, though he admired my aunl 
Katharine very much, he had too gorxl 
taste to monopolize her company entirely, 
to the exclusion of ramc. I enjoyed those 
evenings very much. It seemed to me 
that ilr. Devereux grew remarkably agree- 
able very fast, bometiraea John would 
come in, but John seemed to have grown 
strange and moody of late. I thought it 
was Mr. Devereux was at our 
houae so much, and endeavored to please 
him by extra attention when he did spend 
an evening with us, but it didn't seem to 
be of much use. I resented his silence 
and inattention to me one night, and after 
that he didn't come to us f(T nearly a 
month. But we seemed to get along just 
a.s well without him— at least I did, though 
aunl Katharine asked me a number of 
times about the cause of his absence. 

"He is sulky, I suppose. Don't fret 
about me. aunt Katherinc ; it don't trouble 
me at all," I said. 

A few evening alter, John made his ap- 
pearance, and entered the parlor where 
Mr. Devereux and I sal playing chess, 
while my aunt was writing a letter at a side 
table. 1 thought it woulJ be rather awk- 
ward for him at first, but he came f(.)rwar<l 
easily, and after speaking lo Mr. Devereux 
and myselt, crossed the room and seateil 
himself by my aunt. Pleased with this 
arrangement, 1 devoted myself to my 
game, and did not look around for some 
half an hour afterward, when my alien 
lion wa.'i attracted by the sound of John 
Aubrey's voice, which though low, was re- 
markably earnest and emphatic I turned 
my head and. gazed in wonder. My aunt's 
cheeks were flushed crimson, and Johu'.s 
face, aa seen by rae for an instnnt, wus pale 
and agitated. 1 turned to Mr. Devereux 
in a.3toni8hment, but he only smiled slight 
ly, made a move, and then waited for me 
to do the same. But I coull not play from 
excitement caused by the scene I had ob- 
served a moment before, and lost the game 
through inattention.

I shook my head, and he replaced the 
pieces in a box, and then look up a book 
The next moment John arose, and my aunt 
went with him to the door, rihe did not 
come back for some time, and when she 
did, Mr. Devereux was preparing to go. 
He looked up quickly at her entrance, and 
then asked her laughingly, if it wa? ami- 
cably settled, and if he might congraUilate 
her? She blushed, but said, "Yea, al 
some other time," and bade him good-night 
I had stood by in ritundcycd wonder and 

When the dor.r closed on liim my aunt 

looked steailily nt. me tor a moment, then 

tlnally burst into hysteric

about me. 

"Addie, are you sure you didn't like 
John?" she asked. 

" I believe I did a little last winter, but T 
don't at all now." 
" Are you sure?" 

" Quite sure," I leplial ; " he is so sul- 

" Wait !— do you know w ho you are talk-

" What do you mean, aunl Katharine ? ' 
" I am John Aubrey's betroth«x\ wife, 
Addie!" and she laughed and then cried 

I stood mutely staring at her. Al last I 
found words to say : 

'* Why, aunt Katharine, I thought H was 
1 whom John was in love with !" 
She shook her head. 

" And I thought Mr. Devereux was in 
love with you 1" 

" You must ask him alxjut that," she 
said smiling through her tears. 

And I did a.-;k him the next evening 
while wc stood by an open window, and 
my aunt Katharine sat bv John Aubrey 
in the cosey corner where I used to sit willi 

" Is it possible that you haven't been 
courting aunt Katharine all this time, Mr 
Devereux'/" I said. 
How he laughed! 

" Is it possible that you Jnn't know t|iat

" Mr. Devereux !" 1 exclaimed. 
But he wasn't jesting— and neither was 
I, when I promised a year later to " Love,

killing animals with the least possible suf

w'hich necessarily inflict the most frightful 
t irture on the unfortunate victims ol our 
carniverous propensities. The idea occur- 
red to an eminent physiologist Ihat Ihe 
section of the spine would produce more 
instant death. This however nas not been 
demon-il rated. An ox thus kilkxl lived 
tor twelve minulcs, and endured during 
thai time the most horrible sufferings. De- 
capitation was then tried, with the follow- 
ing curious result ; A calf was hung up 
and decapitated in the space of a quarter 
of a minute. Its head was then placed on 
a table. In six minutes two ounces and a 
half of blood was lost. During the first 
minute the face was frightfully convulsed, 
the mouth opened and shut as though the 
animal was catii-ir, and, strange t<> say, on 
putting the hand againsi the mouth and 
nostril, it was easy'to feel the respiration 
continuing. Thirty animals were thus 
killed, and the result ol the observations 
taken was that the committee decided that 
the old pr iclice of killing by means of 
blows from a hammer should be continued.

Repair of 


—A common house fly almost invarial)ly 
rests with its head downward, and howev- 
er It may alight, works its way aioiintl 
until this position is a.ssumed. The biting 
liics on the coniraay, a.3 universally rest 
with their heads pointing upwards, acting 
in this respect, precisely like the mosquito, 
equally blood thirsty with itself. This ob 
servation m as lirst made by a Hussiau serf. 
The brother of an eminent foreign ento- 
mologist, now residing in the United 
States, observed the man in question kill- 
ing some of the tlies on the wall of his hut, 
without disturbing others. anJ, on being 
que&tione<l, he gave as a reasiDn tbs* those 
with the head up were " biters," out the 
others were not. A careful examination 
of the facta by the etomologist himself, 
proved the accuracy of the generalization 
thus madi« by an ignorant hut observant 

of one or two shanties sold rtad.ily for a 
hundred dollars. Wags proposed an aot 
of Congress reserving some land tor larm 
tng purposes before the whole tcrrilor>' 
shoulil be divided into city lota. Town.s 
enough were started for a Slate contain 
ing four millions c>f people. 


Weston, Misa)uri, was once a Icadmg 
and thriving town. Now the erratic 
stream had made deposits in front until 
large buildings formerly on its bank were 
one-third of a mile inland. At St losii)!;, 
forty miles above, and upon umlerlying 
quicksands, the river was fa-st culling into 
the city. Several acres had disappeiired 
m a single year. Brick warehmises on the 
levee were "now deserted, and their outer 
walls falling. A family in the lower part 
of the town were at dinner, when the 
I ground beneath them began to tr*'mble. 
At first they thought it an earthquake, bul 
' it proved a water quake. They lied to a 
safe distance, and saw house, garden and 
an acre of land slide into the encroaching 
element. One might contract to sell lots 
here and d«liver them in 8t. Louis! It

"Yes, I raised a power of it. I have 
fed a heap to my cattle, and got a right 
smart chance left." 

Uural Missounans never carried bur-

Among other provincialisms

Mark Twfdn, the California humorist, 
Vvho accompanied the (Quaker City excur- 
sionists, went ashore al Civita Vecchia, to 
take a little tour in the I'opc's dominions, 
and thus describes what he saw and expe- 
rienced, in a letter to the Trihiau : 

This 16 the vilest nest of dirt, vermin 
and ignorance we have got into yet, ex- 
cept that African perdition They call the 
Tangier, which is just like it. The people 
hcrc'live in alleys two yards wide. It is 
lucky the alleys are not wider, because 
thty hold as much smell now as a person 
can stand, and, of course, if they were 
wider Ihey would hold more, a-xl then the 
people would die. These alleys are paved 
with stone, (*nd carpeted with slush and 
decayed rags, and decomposed vegetable 
tops, and reinnants ot old boots, all 8<mked 
with dish-water, and the people sit around 
on stools and enjoy it. They arc indolent, 
as a general thing, and yet have few pas- 
times. They work Two or three hours at a 
time, but no't hard, and then they knock 
oil and catch fleas. This does not require 
talent, they only have to grab— if 
they don't get the one they, are after, they 
get another. 1 1 is all the same to them. 
They are not particular. 1 hey have no 
partialities. Whichever one they get is 
the one they want. They have other kinds 
of insects, bul it does not make them ax- 
rogant They arc very quiet, unpretend- 
ing people. They have nn.ire of this than 
oilier commodities, bul they do not brag. 
They arc vury uncleanly, these jieople, in 
face, in person and dress. ^Yhen they see 
anybody with a clean shirt on, it arouses 
their scorn. The women wash clothes 
half the d.ay at the public fountains, but 
they are probably somebody's else ; or, 
uiAy be, they keep one suit to wear and 
another to wash, because they never wear 
any that have ever been washed. When 
thi;y gel done washing they sit in the 
1 alleys and nurse their cubs. All the wo- 
men m Civita Vecchia have large families. 
They nurse one at a time, and the others 
scratch their backs against the d<X)r-po8ts 
and are happy. All the people scratch — 
il is their delight. There is a rusty shrine 
here and there along the streets, where the 
people can watch and praj ; but they don't 
do that; they scratch and pray— they like 
it belter. All this country is presided over 
by the Fope. They do not appear to have 
any schfwjls here, and only one billiard 
table. Their education is at a very low 
stage. One portion of the men go into the 
u-ulitar>', another into the priejjjhwd, a 
third into the shoemaking busmess, and 
the balance " lay around." They keep up 
the passport system yet, but so they do in 
Turkey. This shows that Turkey is not a 
whil more enlightened than the Papacy, 
whatever malignant villains may say to 
the contrarv.

to Lewis D. Dent, Esq., was poiso.ied. Mr. 
Dent was attending the Democratif' meeting 
at the Court House at tbe^ime, and the 
horse left liitchct-' at a post. Poison mixed 
with bran waa fed to the horse. The horse 
died in about an hour afterwards. Mr. 
Dent tiavinc loit his house and household

The Democratic State Committse In 
their State address to the people, says : 
" The record for the year as far as it 
has been made up, shows no diversity 
nor chiini'C" in tiie coiis'-aiu course o' 
public sentiment. In Connecticut the 
radical party was beaten, and Democrat- 
ic State officers elected. In Kentucky 
the Deinovratic majority was 4U,00(>. — 
In Caliloriii.i. which gave over 22,00 J 
Uepublitan inajorily a year *^io, the 
lieuiberatic in;ijurity this year is 8.000. 
Moiitaua, Colorado aud New Mexico 
have %kll elected Democratic delegates 
to Congress. The Radical majority wl 
'27,000 in Maine has beeu reduced to 
lJ,Odv), Tile Kadical mnjoriiy in Ohio 
uf 4'<:,G00 has been oblileraied, and a 
Legislature Las beeu elected tnat svill 
choose a Democratic Senator to succeed 
Ben Wade, tbe ablest, boldest, and mosi 
datiiierous Kadical statesman in the 
United States Sei.aie. ii^eun»}lvania^ 
which gave 17,000 Radical majority 
last year, gives a Democratic majoriy 
of 1,200 this year. The Radical majori- 
ty in Iowa is reduced from 35,00J to 
15,000. The majority iu Indiana instead 
of being 15,000 Republican, is 10,000 
Democratic. There was a gain of sev 
erul thousand even in Vermont. These 
glorious gains aioount in the aggregate 
10 not less than IlO.OdO voles, i\nd the

Vsjelable Sicilian Hair Renewei 

Itaa Ktood the test of seven yeara 
trial bfi the public ; and «/> pnpn- 
ration for the hair yet discovered 
ivill produce th^ txinic henc/laal 
results. It is a new scientific diS' 
cover!/, conihininii the most power- 
ful and ri-st'trative agents in the 
FUL COLOR. it makes the srain 
white and dean; cures tlat.draff 
and humors, and failing out of th| 
hair ; and will make it grow nj}on 
bald headSf enocept in very aged 
persons, as it famishes the nntrl- 
live priuciple bif which th^ hair 
is u^nirished and supported. It 
tnakes the hair moist, soft, and 
glos*!/^ aud is unsnrjHissed as a 
HAIR DRESSING. Jt is the cheapett 
pri' pa cation ever offered to tlie 
public, as one bottle will accom- 
plish more and last longer than 
three bottles of any other prepara- 

Jt is reeom mended and used by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The wondirful results produced 
hi/ our Sicilian Jlair Jiencwer 
have ituluced many to manufac- 
ture preparations for the IJatrp 
linden' various names ; and in 
ord^r to induce the trade and tJt^ 
public to purchase their com- 
poutuls, they have resorted to false- 
hoods, by claiming they were 
former partners, or /tad some con- 
nection with our 3Ir. JIall. and 
their preparation was similar to 
ours, J>o not be deceived by them! 
J*ui'oJtase the original: it has 
nevntr been equalled. Our Treatise 
on tlu? Hair with certificated, sent 
free by mail. See tluit each bottle 
has our private Jievenue Stamp 
ovs_r tlie top of the bottle. All otli- 
ers are itnitations.

\ifMi Sicilian Haii Renewei 

U(i>* stood the test of seven if ears 
trifif htf the ptthlie ; ami no pn-pa- 
rntiint for the hnir ipf tliseovrred 
iriff pro(fiue th*- Htaiie heiie/leial 
retnfts. It is <t uetr scientifir, dis- 
coreri/, eovihininr/ t/w tmtst power- 
fiil and rest'nyttire iigeitts in the 
FUL COLOR. It mahes the sea/p 
inJiife and dean f enres daiidriifj 
aud humors, and falling out of th| 
hair; and will make it g row upon 
hold heads, eir*ept in very aqcd 
persons, as it famishes the nutri- 
tive pritieiple bjf whieh the hair 
is nourished and supported. It 
makes the hair nioisf, soft, anU 
f/fos-'i/. and is ansnrpassed as a 
HAIR DRESSING. It is the cheapest 
prrpuratiitn ever offered to the 
pnfpfir, as one bottle iviU aeeom- 
pdsh more and last lonf/er than 
three bottles of any other prepara- 

It is reeow mended and used by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The H'ondi rfitl results produced 
/>»/ our Sicilian Hair Jteneuer 
have imlured many to iuannfae- 
i tare preparations for the Hair, 
I under various names ; and in 
\ order to induee the trade and the 
pul/lie to pnrehase their com- 
pounds, they have resorted to false- 
hoods, by claiming they were 
former partners, or Jmd some con- 
nection vHth our 3Ir. Hall, and 
their preparation was similar to 
ours. Ho not be deceived by them! 
rurchase the original : it has 
n^'vetr been equalled. Our Treatise 
on tlt^e Haif with certificatesr, sent 
free by mail. See that each bottle 
lt4ts our private Jtevenue Stamp 
ov§r tlie top of the bottle. All Oliv- 
ers are Unitaiions.

llaa stood the test of .leren years

ratiou fi>r the hair yet discovered 
iri ft prod ace th*; name Itencflciat 
resufts. If is <t neiv scientific dis- 
coreri/, rtnnhiniiif/ ihe most poa'cr- 
fn! and vesf'tcotire ofjents in the 
FUL COLOR. It mahes the scalp 
Kfhifc (toil clean: cares ilni. draff 
nnd humors, nnti failing out of tha 
haip; and wilt mahc it (/roiv upon 
hahl heads, earrept iu very af/cd 
persojis. as it famishes the nutri- 
tive principle by which- the hair 
is tatarished and sapporfed. Jt 
inahes the hair moist, soft, and 
yl<>s*if. and is unsurpassed fis a 
HAIR DRESSING. Jt is the cheapest 
prrjHirati^ni ever offered to the 
pahlic, as one bottle will accom- 
plish more and last lonf/er than 
three bottles of any other jtreparu- 

If is recommended and used by 
the First Medical Authority. 

The wond'-rfal results produced 
hif our Sicilian, JIair Jiencirer 
have induced many to viannfae- 
ture preparatitniH for the JIair, 
under various names ; and in 
order to induce the trade and the 
public to purchase their com- 
pounds, Ihey have resorted tofalse- 
JuhhIs, by claiminff they were 
former partners, or Jiad some con- 
nection with our 31 r. JTall. and 
Iheir preparation was similar to 
ours. Do not Oe deceived by them! 
J*urehase the original : it has 
never been equalled. Our Treatise 
on the JIai>- with cert ifleates, sent 
free by mail. Sec that each bottle 
has our private Jievenuc Stamp 
ov^r tlie top of the bottle. All otli- 
ers are imitations.

Democratic Meeting. 

•On Monday evening last a large meeting 
assembled at Beiv. Eiulreh's Hall, to hear 
Hon. Aures Oggswell. Tkc hall was crowd- 
ed and Mr. Coggswell spoke over two hours. 
His speech was coiifiued to the living issues 
of the present time. Tbe railroad bond 
swindle, the negro amcudmcat to the Con- 
glitution, and the bank amendment were all 
considered br the speaker, and handled with 
a master's skill. He then took up natioual 
taxation matters. The rich man's high 
««riff and the poor man's tax-, tli« lich 
tnan'a bonds and the ioot man's coflF«.'e, re- 
ceived his attention, aud the fraudulent log 
islation concerning them was condemned, 
juid remedies proposed and exj)laiiie«i. Mr. 
Cloggswell's speech was listened to by Dem- 
ocr.its and Republicans aud created a mark- 
ed impression. It was a telling speech, and 
we wish it could have been listened to by 
<very man in the State. 

On Saturday evening another large meet- 
ing aasembled «1 the same place to listen to 
Mr, Co.x, of St. Peter. His addrtss was an 
able and «k>quent appeal to the history of 
ihc country for the proof of the loyalty of 
the Democratic party. I 

•m ^ ^ 

Early last spring a pauper named Peter 
Bush was discharged from the poor house 
«B able ♦a support himself. He is a very 
cross and disagreeable person, and very 
«lirty in his habits. He is able to do about 
half a man's work, but is so disagreeable 
that most persons will not have him about. 
iJut this is not a good reason why the coun- 
ty should support him. He Lad been away 
from the poor house about two months, but 
the day after Mr. Hinds left the county one 
cf the C-ommissioners sends this same Peter 
Hush back to the poor house. He had tak- 
en him to his own house and kept him a 
week before he sent him in, and charges the 
<ouuty $3.50, and gets it. He hires a con- 
veyance to take this able-bodied pauper from 
Credit River back to the poor house, and 
the county pays $5.00 for it. He cliarges 
Ihe-connty $9-00 for three visits to a pauper 
»nd gets it. In a sorry condition would tke 
county be if all the Commissioners were 
I'.ke unto hiiu, 

Under this Commissioner's direction, this 
I'c-ter Bush has remained at the poor house 
all summer. In Mr Hinds' absence, J. L. 
MeDoaa^d, our wise county attorney, writes 
to ibe deputy poor master that he h.ns no 
riglit to require paupers to work. So this 
Peter Bush remained at the poor house all 
•uramer in utter idleness, but as soon as Mr. 
Hinds returned home, he was sot at work 
tor wages. Artd although he is to have what 
ho earns, it is to be us«d in clothing himself 
for the winter. If his time had becti im- 
proved during the summer, he might have 
^.arned enough to support himself during 
l«e winter. The course adopted by these 
men *w5 by lb« Great Political Trader, has 
been productive of idleness on the part of 
paupers, and needless expense to the county. 


DEMOCR.WS ! Do you wish to have 
Scott County represented in the Legislature 
by a knownothing? If not, you will not 
wish to defeat William Henry. .ludge 
Henry has held a responsible otfice for two 
years, and has been true to his ofiiciul 
duties. He has always been true to his 
party and deserves the support of even 
those who desired the nomination of other 
ETS. We understand bogus Democratic 
tickets have been printed with R. M. 
Wright's name in place of William Henry's. 
We are told that split tickets have been 
distributed in New Market and other towns. 
Look out for them. There is no doubt but 
Judge Henry will make an able and faith- 
ful Representative, and he is entitled to the 

full support of the party. 

^. .«. ..^ 

County Trsa.surer. 

Tax Paters^ do you wish an honest and 
capable man to collect and keep the public 
moneys ? Do you wi:;'.i a man whom you 
have trusted, who has always been true to 
your interest, whom you have tried and 
know will account fur every dollar of your 
money? Then go and vote for John Kdort 
for County Treasurer. 

Judge cI Probate. 

Hon. L. R- Hawkins is the nominee for 
Judge of Probate. Mr. Hawkins is an old 
and well known citizen. He is a gentleman 
of learning, a good companion, liberal in 
his opinions, and jrossesses fine social quali- 
ties. He is the only person on the ticket 
from the southeastern part of the county. — 
There is no opposition to him^ and of course 
his election is certain.

"FosTtR iJapTUEE.'' — Hov easy some 
people full into mistakes. Some people 
eNndentlv think ft foster brother is a bloqd 
relation, but such is not the fact. Web? 
eter says a foster brother is "a male nursed

A little better familiarity with Webster's

from making awkward blunders. 

Last winter our Legislature seem to have 
spent their time in devising means to bene- 
fit the rich at the expense of the poor. — 
They got up a Constitutior.jvl amendment 
for a vnijorin taxation of the stock ii: 
Banks. County and town taxes vary in 
amount in different counties and town.s. — 
In some counties they are high, in other 
lower. There is no uuituruiity in the rate 
of county and town taxes in the difierent 
counties. Each county determines for 
itself what rale of couuty taxes they will 

As no tax can be uniform throughout the 
State except a State tax, it will bo seen 
that that tricky Ix-gislature (inclmling our 
Senator) intended to exempt Bank stock 
from all county and town taxes. The peo- 
ple, therefore, should vote NO upon that 
amendment. But that tricky Legislature, 
fearing that the trick would be discovered 
before election, undertake to defeat the will 
of the people by providing that the ballots 
on this Bank amendment shall be separate 
from the rest of the ticket. Of course a 
separate ballot box must be provided in 
which to deposit this Bank ticket. Such 
trickery in legislation does not look well, 
but the people must furnish a remedy by 
sending better and smarter men to the

-An engagement is announced between 
a Hartford (Ct ) gentleman of considerable

nlain eold, in which i.-^ set a single diamond 
of remarkable brilliancy and great value. 
The setting is said to be entirely new in 
design, and the engraving on the inside 
very beautifully executed. The wording is 
novel. It is as follows :

—We learn from a new English volume 
on mining, that in 1SU5 the principal min- 
eral-producing countries of the world 
yielded 559,287 pounds of gold, and 4,000,- 
000 pounds of silver. Of gold, Cahfornia 
and the adjoining mineral districts pro- 
duced 210,000 pounds; Australia and New 
Zealand, 191,000; Russia, 69,500; South 
America, ^M.OOO; Southern Asia. 26.000 
Of silver, Mexico produced 1.700,000 
pounds ; the United States, 1,000,000 ; Peru 
and Chili, 598,000 ; and the rest Of Europe, 
including the British isle, 526,000. Esti- 
mating the value of these metals at present 
market values, the yield of gold for the 
vcar was not far from $125,000,000, and of 
silver, $75,000,000. 

-The convicts in the Massachusetts 
State Prison, at Charlestown, are bringing 
in large returns to the treasury of that in- 
stitution, by manufacturing ornamental 
bronze iron work, gas fixtures and iron 
bedsteads. As the Slate receives $1 a day 
for the labor of the prisoners, it can easi- 
ly be seen that the contractors, by paymc 
much less than the regular wages, are mak- 
ing money by the operation. Articles 
coming out of the shops were sent to the 
French Exposition, and attracted great at-^ 
tention, the Emperor and the King of 
Prussia giving large orders for similar 
goods. Two bundrtnl and fifty out of the 
five hundred and thirty inmates are em- 
ployed on this fine work. The average 
yearly earnings of the entire number em- 
ployed in the prison are |371 per man.

are defrayed by the labor of the prisoners,

the best animal for man. They do more 
fur man than grownd hogs or koons or 
even goats. Goats smell. The end. 

—An agitatiim has been going on for 
some time in the Dutch Reformed Church 
of New York, in regard to dropping the 
word "Dutch," as rather a shade of t 
name than possessed of any vital meaning. 
At a late meeting of the New York Clas- 
sis the subject came up, and was the 
occasion of much discussion. The vote on 
the motion that thcClassis consent to [the 
proposition submitted by the General Syn- 
od for the charge of the name from Re- 
formed Dutch Church to Reformed Church 
was taken with the following result— yeas, 
IS • navs, 20. The result of this vote was 
f'oliowe'd by the adoption of a resolution 
that the General Synod has no more right 
to change its name and title than to change 
its doctrines and form of government.

she supposcil to be her prayer book and 
started for church. Her seal was at the 
chancel end of the gallery. The organ 
ceased playing. The minister said : " Ihe 
Lord is in his holy temple, let all the earth 
keep silence before him." In the eflort to 
open her supposed prayer book, she sti.rt- 
ed the spring of the music box, which she 
had taken instead. It began to play— In

—A circular has been issued by the 
Russian Ministry of Finance prohibiting 
the trade in two-copek pieces. The facts 
connectetl with this circular are rather sin- 
gular In 1863 a large (luautily of gold 
was missed from the mint in St Peters- 
burg, and no tnicc of it could be found. 
Now however, it appears that a workman 
had stolen the gold, and suspicion having 
fallen on him h.; was not able to dispose of 
it He, therefore, in order to rid himself 
of the corpus <hlirtie, threw it into a smelt- 
ing caldron filled with copper for the mak- 
ing of two copek pieces. Some sharp spe- 
culators having found out this fact, iHstant- 
ly set about buying up the whole l»bo 
two copek coinage at twice and thrice its 
ordinary value. This remunerative trade 
is now to be stopped, and the golden cop- 
pers are to go back to the government.

all other great ones, is simple. A centre 
rail, like a stair banister, is placed on strong 
supports, fourteen inches above the other 
rails. The engine is providctl with four 
horizontally-placed wheels, which are con- 
nected with the cylinders, and may be 
made to "bite" the centre rail. Ihese

The Ureat Orffan at I.iiiernc. 

The J^ibcral Cfiridian has Dr. Bellows' 
letter from Switzeriand, which gives the 
following account of the great organ in 
the cathedral at Lucerne : 

Il is played twice every day for one hour, 
and furnishes a favorite resort for travelers. 
I stumbled into the church first at the very 
hour the organ was being exhibited, and 
with no knowledge of ils met its, and of 
course without any special expectations. 
But the hush of the little audience showed 
that something unusual was going on, and 
it required only a few minutes to bring me 
wholly under the sped of the most magi- 
cal stops that I had ever listened to. Tlie 
player, 1 found after a second hearing, was 
not a very great one, but the organ itself 
was wonderful, and he understood per 
fectly how to exhibit it, undertaking only 
what he could do with entire success. The 
power of the full organ was immense and 
as sweet as it was powerful. I could com- 
pare it only to the eflect ot a great park (jf 
artillery heard at a distance sufficient to 
mellow the thunder. But the vox humaun 
wiwlhc speeiitlty of this organ, and cer- 
tainly luuhing more successful in the way 
of linitation was ever done. At first, after 
a bold intrixluction of the lull orgjin, we 
heard a choir of children's voices, singing 
apparently in a neighboring cloister ; then 
a choius of men's voices took up the 
strain, and came nearer and nearer, as it 
one and then another door between us and 
them had been opened. I could not per 
suade myself for a Ions lime that a choir 
was not concealed in some adjoining apart- 
ment ; but it was finally clear that no choir 
could keep such time and agree together 
in such expression. Nothing by tones 
more human or more angelic was ever per- 
mitted t>i visit my ears; at times the 
mighty instrument was subdued to the gen- 
tleness of an infant's breathing, and we all 
held our breath not to lose the least sigh 
of its decaying harmony. It seemed as if 
a choir of seraphs hail strayed out of liea- 
vcn, and were overheard by chance as they 
flew by. 

Luuicuots Attempt kt St kiok.— The 
Oakland (Cal ) AVir* says tlic following 

The Invalidc Jiusu of September 27, re- 
cords a case of peculiarly horrible charac- 
ter which has just been heard before the 
eriminal tribunal of Vladimir. Russia. A 
man named Kursin, a member of an""^" 
ou<: and fanatical Russian sect called the 
Savior lately killed his own s(m and offered 
him as'a sacrifice to God. The narrative 
in the Russian journal is as follows : 

The doctrine of this sect consists m an 
absolute negation of all earthly property. 
An adherent possesses nothing whatever, 
and according to his notions everything 
around him is evil personified. Such 
ideas naturally prompt these unhappy men 
to acts of frightful despair. They believe 
it is necessary to constantly implore the 
mercy of the Savior by every means, for 
it is He alone who can save them. The ac- 
cused person, who was twenty-seven years 
of age, killed his son, a little boy of seven, 
in tne conviction that the act would be 
agreeable to the Savior. His own account 
of the crime is as follows : " One night 
I fell so strongly that the human race 
must soon perish that I could not get a 
moment's sleep. I rose and lighted all the 
lamps before the images of the saints, and 
throwing myself on my knees I fervently 
prayed God to save mo and my family. 
Suddenly the idea came to me of saving 
my son Irom eternal damnation, for as this 
only chdd was a beautiful boy, and finer 
than most boys of his age, I feared that he 
would become, after my death, a prey of 
hell, and I determined lu sacrifice him to 
the Lord. 

"Filled with this idea I continued to 
pray I said to myself that if during my 
prayer the thought of Eacrificing my son 
to God came to rac from the right side 1 
would execute it. If on the contrary, it 
came fron the left, I would give it up ; tor. 
according to our religious teachings, the 
tboughl which comes from the right is from 
our good angel, and that from the lett is 
the instigation of the devil. After a long 
pmyer, the thought came to me from the 
ri-^ht side, and I returned full ot joy to the 
room where my son slept by the side of 
my wife. Knowing that she would oppose 
the sacrifice which 1 desired to ofler to God, 
I sent her to the market to purchase provi- 
sions. When she had gone I awoke my 
child and said to him. " Gel up, my son, 
and put ou thy white shirt, that 1 may ad- 
mire thee." When he had done this 1 laid 
him on the bcncli, and slabbed him several 
times in the Bk>mach." 

The child in struggling fell Ireiiucntly 
upon the knife, and when found was cov- 
ered with woundn. The father, it seems, 
intending to end the lad's sullering.s, cut 
the stomach open from top to bottom ; 
hut even then he lingered for a little while. 
This frightful scene occurred just before 
sunrise. Kursin soys that just as the 
child had breatheil his last, the first rays of 
the sun shone through the window, and 
in a moment of ecslacy he fell on his knees 
and implored God> mercifully receive this 
sacrifice. Kursin continued tus narrative 
in these terms: "Just as I had thrown 
myself before the holy images, and as my 
son was lying in his blood, the door opened 
and mv wife came In. She instantly saw 
what had happeneil, and, .seized with hor- 
ror, she fell senseless to the ground. I 
raised her, and I said, 'Go Uj the Mayor 
and tell him all. 1 am going to give a. Jtte 
to the saints.'" 

Kursin, after he hail been sent to prison, 
resolutely refused all kinds of nourisliment, 
and died of sUrv .ition before the senlenne 
iqnn him could be executed. 

him away by yelling " Get out." Small 
birds chase each other about in play ; but, 
perhaps, the condacl of the crane and the 
trumpeter is the most extraordinary. The 
latter stands on one leg, hops about in the 
most eccentric manner, and throws somer- 
saults. All animals pretending violence 
in their play stop short in exercising it. 
The dog takes the greatest precaution not 
to injure by his bite, a nd tlie orang-outang, 
in wrestling with his keeper, pretends to 
throw him, and makes feints of biting 


Some animals carry out m their play 
the semblance of catching their prey; 
young cats, for instance, leap after every 
small and moving object, even to the 
leaves strewed by the autumn wind ; they 
crouch and steal forward, ready for the 
spring, the body quivering, and the tail 
vibraiing with emotion, they bound on 
the moving leaf, and again spring forward 
to another. Bengcr saw young jaguars 
and cougars playing with round substan- 
ces, like kittens. Birds of the magpie kind 
are full of mischief. There is a story oi a 
tame magpie that was seen m a garden 
gathering pebbles, and with much solemn- 
ity and a sludicd air buried them in a hole 
made to receive a post. After dropping 
each stone it cried " currack !" triumphant- 
ly, and set out lor another. On examining 
the spot a poor toad was found in the hole, 
which the magpie was stoning for his 
amusement. There is fun in animals and 
birds. Indeed there is.

unlimited card-playing in tUatsame house, 
my traditions were decidedly Jarred. I do 
not imply that my observances were belter 
or worse than my host's, but that they 
were different. 

" Having breakfasted, I began to ran- 
sack the city for work, and in my toUl 
i"norance, traversed many stj^ets where 
none could possibly be found. -In ihe 
course of thai day and the next, iiqwever, 
I must have visited fully two-thirds of the 
printing offices on Manhattan Island, with- 
out a gleam of succcfis. It was midsum- 
mer, when business in New York -is habit- 
ually dull; and my youth and unques- 
tionable air of country greenness must 
have told against me. Wlien I called at 
the Journal of Commerre, its editor, Mr. 
David Hale, bluntly told me I was a run- 
away apprentice from some country office; 
which was a very natural, though mis- 
taken, presumption. 1 returned to my 
lodgings on Saturday evening, tiioroughly 
weary, dishearteued and disgusted with 
New York, and resolved to shake its dust 
from my feet next morning, while I could 
still leave with money in my pocket, and 
before its alms house could foreclose upon

afternoon and evening several young 
Irishmen caUed at Mr. McGolncks, m 
their holiday saunterings about town, and, 
being told that I was a young printer in 
quest of work, interesied themselves in my 
eflort with the spontaneous kindness of 
their race. One among them happened to 
know a place where printers were wanted, 
and gave the requisite directions, .so that, 
on visiting the designated spolnext morn 
ing, I readily found employment; and 
thus, when barely three day.i a resident, I 
found an anchorage in New \ork."

ludicrous scene was recently witnesserl by

Avoungman and still more youthful

that the younc lady had placed her aflec- 
tions on the y"buth, who wouldn t talk the 
kind ot turkey in return that she desired. 
"Henry, honey! do, O, do say that you 
love me, or IU do a rash acU ' said the 
infatuated damsel. Henry didn t elo it, for 
in a moment out jumped the lady into the 
blue, tenacious mud, sinking quite up te 
her knees. She tried to make her way to 
the deep water, but to save her neck she 
couldn't do it. No sooner did she try to 
raise one leg, than down went tjie "iher 
still further. Henry (tlic scamp) looked 
on perfectly unconcerned ; she kept smit- 
ing in the mud until she was submerged as 
far as her crinoline would allow, when she 
concluded that there might possibly be an 
easier way of shuffling off this mortal coil 
She callcxl loudly on her stony-hearteil

The full •■rca.Mjn has fairly tcl in, and we 
find the matrimonial market buoyant in 
our city, hundreds of W!;<«-guidcd young 
men rushing into the h(dy estate. A more 
than usual number of wedding tourists are 
noticed by travelers and conductors on the 
diflerent railroads. 

Of course, it is not on account of being 
ashamed of each other that they try to dis- 
guise their situation, but simply to avoid 
l)eing criticised and remarked upon by pro- 
fane strangers. Thus they lay the fond 
unction to their souls that they aie trav- 
eling in mj. But, good gracious, how 
badly fooled they arc. It is one of the 
easiest things in the world to the careful 
eye to tell precisely how many days, or 
cveu hours, they have been "spliced." 
They can sometimes be detected by the 
great pains they take to appear either like 
old married people or cousins as they pro- 
menade the deck of a steamer, or sit .so de- 
murely in the cars In many ca.9cs their 
dreaa, in part, exposes them. It is so 
apropos to the occasion, being neat, sym- 
metrical, and bran new. In cases where 
the parties have good taste, there is no 
gaudiness or " flubdubbing" about their 
attire. All glitter and display are thrown 
a.'^ide, and the city belie appears more like 
a Quakeress in her simple traveling dre^s 
of drab or mouse color. 

Sometimes the youthful culprits engage 
in playing at lovers or aflect a flirtation, 
but it is always a stupendous failure. 
Their eyes betray too much happiness for 
wit and repartee ; there is such a peculiar 
softness and tenderness in their confiden- 
tial whispers, and such a pride in the pos- 
.session of each other, that none around 
them are deceived. It is generally the 
case that the bridegroom makes the 
discovery fiist, and throws his arm c.ire- 
les.«ly around the shoulders of his wile, as 
much as to .say, defiantly to the cnviou", 
" Who's afraid V Who know;s but that we 
have been married many years." Not 
know? . , ,, , 

The guilty slyness m the way that arm 
steals re und, first on the seal liack and then 
gradually closer, while the bride evinces a 
silent pleasure as she aceiuiesces in a very 
unperceiviug way. Indued, il is she who 
" lets the cat out of the big" most ciuickly. 
The narrow guage seats an- most prefera- 
ble to the broad guage, and if you sit ou 
the seat back of them you will observe at 
first that the lady's shoulders are not even 
—they incline just a little to her partner. 
After traveling in this po.sition a few hours, 
her neck gets as limber as a washed paper 
c<jllar, and her head gravitates to the broad 
shoulders of her husband, and there it 
nestles, innocently and confidingly m the 
repose of honest, pure and truthful love. 
At times, in spite of all precautions, a tress 
or two of her golden locks will get loose, 
and drop on her shoulder. But il almost 
seems that there is order and neatness in 
their very disorder and abandon. 

So they go, fancying themselves lost in 
the crowd— unnoticed, unknown, with 
their secret locked up in their own palpi- 
tating bosoms. Poor youug people!—

The following are Agassiz's estimates of 
the formation and age of the Florida reefs 
on the Florida coast : 

These reefs are built up by an insect 
that begins to work on the ground in wa- 
ter of twelve or fifteen fathoms deep, and 
he cannot live unless ho has the constant 
action of the open sea upon him, so that he 
stops at the height of high tide. By nu- 
merous experiments il has been ascertain- 
ed that the coral liuildcr constructs at 
about the rate of half an inch in a century, 
but in order to err, if at all, on the safe 
side, Agassiz doubles his estimate in his 
calculations, making il an inch in a cen- 
tury. Now outside of the Florida Keys 
there is a long reel with an average height 
of seventv feet, which, therefore, must have 
begun 7,000 years ago, or 1,000 years before 
Adam. Secondly, the keys themselves are 
nothing but an inner reception of the very 
same sort of coral reefs, of at least 
the same average height ; and the builders 
must have finished them before they began 
the outside reef, as appears from the ne- 
cessity of having the open sea, and from 
the fad that there are none outside of the 
one we have mentioned above. The keys, 
therefore, swell the record tx> 14.000 years. 
Next we have the shore bluflofthc mam 
land, which is also oi the same coral con- 
struction, and which carries the earth's 
record above 20,000 years. Moreover, 
there are, as you go inland, seven well de- 
fined and, of course, successive rows of 
coral reefs, which, added to the foregoing, 
would make the work 70.000 years old 
And Professor Agassi/, regards this as a 
very mtxlcrate estimate.

his sagacity m pursuing crhnmals. The

called into requisition, and, after making a 
circuit of the burning buildings, sooii

On a recent Sunday evening, a young

we will call John, went to visit the girl 
whom he would call his own. The fair 
one resides near the canal. During the 
evening the young man of the name 
John wiis unable to conceal the

his desire that the young lady should con-

The ardent John still pressed her further, 
declaring that, if she would not accept him 
he would then and there drown himself in 
the briry waters of the canal. As this 
threat did not eUecl the desired purpose, 
he proceeded to carry it out. He plunged 
fearlessly in the murky flood, and waded 
out until the chilly water reached over his 
shoulders. It will be remembered that the 
evening on which this occurred was none 
of the warmest. Retreating before finally 
carrying out nis purpose, John cried out, 
shivering with cold : ^_ 

" W-w-will you marry me now ? 
"No!" , , 

In he plunged again, this time until the 
water reached his neck, and again he halt- 
ed before ihe plunge. 
" W-w will you marry me now V " 

Again he went in, this lime going fairly 
under water, .so fur that only the lop of his 
head could l>c discovered aliove the sur- 
face, but he emerged and sLaggered out of 
Ihc canal, and, shivering worse than ever, 
sputtered out ; 
"N-now w-w will you m marry me? 

"Well I don't caie a d darn whether 
you'll marry me or not. You won't gel me 
into that canal again ! " 

Nor did he again essay his fortunes in 
the uucerlain deep. Shivering and chat- 
tering with his teeth, he quickly departed 
and returned to his home a sadder, and, let 
us hope, a wiser va&n.—T'olcdo Blade.

r<»oni]KO»v s HAtt. 

Y(»u have doubtlcsa heard of that famous 
carptt-hag which was associated with the 
Waterloo Bridge mystery. Well, I am 
about to tell you a much more dreadful 
story (or one which seems to vie to be so) 
about another carpet-bag, the owner of 
which the much vaunted sagacity of the 
police has also failed to discover. la both 
cases, however, as though in revenge for 
their own incapacity, they have not hesi- 
tated to cast a slur upon innocent individu- 
als. My ntighber B. and myself were re- 
turning, one November atternoon, from our 
club, wiiere 1 had looked in as usual, just 
to get a glimpse of the evening paper, m 
order t« take the last telegraphic intelli- 
gence to my wife at home, when, finding 
ourselves late for our respective dinners, 
we hailed a hansom, and got into it ; it be- 
ing arranged that I should drop B within 
a street's length of his own house. 

" Hullo !" cried my companion, directly 
we had started oti'; " why, here's a carpet- 
bag which somebody has left behind him." 
"Halves!" cxclaime<i 1, with a sudden 
and uncontrollable impulse, the springs of 
which lay far enough,awp.y in those days of 
Iwyhood when the rights of properly arc 
so imperfectly understood. 

" Xo, no," replied B, severely ; "it is not 
yours, my fiicnd. You know it icm lUuit 
found it.' 

" Really, my dear B," returned I, " You 
quite surprise me. Y'ou must be aware 
that it belongs, to neither of us, bat to the 
unfortunate person who hatl engaged this 

*' Very true," assented B, but a little re- 
gretfully, as 1 thought, at the view I had 
"deeniod it right to take ; for however 
Divines may preach, and (which is worse) 
the law may dictate, when one has found 
a thing, one does seem to have some sort of 
a claim to it. If I were asked to point out 
what is pnr exreUem-e the law of nature, I 
snould answer, It is that which is called on 
land " the Kight ol Trover," and on the 
seashore that of " Flotsam and Jetsam." 
Here was a carpet-1)ag left by the tide ol 
humanity,— or at least by one csreless 
wave of it, — and here were We, its liiulers, 
— for it is ridiculous that B should have a 
priority of claim, just because he happened 
to plump down (without hurting himself) 
upon the property in tiucstion, which 
might just a;i well have been on my side 
of the hansom as his. The (luestion arose 
then, How were we to deal with it 'i 

" It will never do to give it up to the 
cabman, eh '/" observed B, tentatively : "b^; 
will keep it for himself to a certainty." 

" Quite out of the ([uestion," assented I. 
" The fello^v who lost it would never have 
a chance of recovering it." 

" I liiink 1 had belter take it home and 
advertise it in the Times," suggested my 

" No, my dear fellow," said I, firmly : 
" you shall never be troubled to walk with 
that great black leather-bag" (it was an 
uncommonly large one,) "through the 
streets. The cab takes mc, you know, to 
my own door, so I'll take it to rui/ house." 
" Very well," said B, slowly handing 
over the property into my charge, with the 
air of a co-trustee, who, while executing 
some undoubtedly lawful deed, yet cannot 
help regretting that the person who acts 
with him should happen to be an attorney. 
" Yf^u'll take great care of it, won't you '?" 
" Of course 1 will," returned I, indig- 
nantly. " I shall either advertise it in the 
Times, or take it to the police office the first 
thing in the morning." 

"Just so," said B, who had now arrived 
at hia journey's end. " 1 should n't at all 
wonder if we saw a reward oflercd for it 
to-morrow in the second column. If we 
were poor people, this might be quite a 
god-send, might it not f" 

" You shall have halves," said I, " what- 
ever it is." 

And so we parted with another shout ol 
merriment. But when 1 glanced through 
the little window, I sjiw B lo<jkinK afiei 
me with an intensity of expression, which, 
although we are always sorry to wish each 
oihc go<xl by, I never noticed in his friend- 
ly countenance before. 

It may be asked, perhaps, how it was 
that the cabman, seeing mc enter his vehi- 
cle without luggage, and emerge from it 
with the property in question, did not at 
once question my right to the same ; for it 
is scarcely to be supposed that he was met- 
aphysician enough to allow that I could 
have evolved not only the idea of a carpet- 
bag, but a carpet-bag itself, out of my in- 
ner consciousness. 

The reply to this apparent difficulty is, 
that it wa.? dark. Moreover, I won't swear 
that I did not hold the carpet-bag rather 
behind me, so as to shield it from observa- 
tion, while I paid the man his full fare and 
sixpence over, for which, as usual, he did 
not stay to thank me, but drove swiftly 

My wife was exceedingly interested in 
this carpetbag~a black one, evidently 
Divided within into compartments — and 
punched it vigorously, with the object of 
discovering, from the nature of the resist- 
ance otlered, what was the character of its 
contents. " If we could open it," argued 
she, " we should surely learn from internal 
evidence the name and address of the 
owner, and l)C able to forward it to him 

Bat when all the little keys in our pos- 
session had been tried without effect upon 
lis patent lock, we decided that it could 
not possibly contain anything beyond a 
change of ^clothes— probably some poor 


gentleman's evening suit, — and a couple 'o 
hair brushes. There was no doubt about 
UuiM, for I could feel their bristles througli 
the leather. Under these circumstances, 
the expenditure of Bcven-aud sixpence in 
an advertisement in the Tmiea was not to 
1)6 dre^eil of, and I made up my mind to 
"communicate with the police.'* There 
was also something authoritative, and 
which seerned to confer importance upon 
one, in such an act. People who are des- 
cribed as " taking that very pr»>per course," 
in the newspaper, always strike one in the 
light of public benefactors. Moreover, 
although nothing was really ever further 
from my thoughts (and I think I may add 
even from B's) than to appropriate that 
carpet-bag or its contents to my own uses, 
yet there was a certain sense of self-sacri- 
fice in the action, or, at all events, of the 
most heroic honesty. AiisUdes himself 
could not have behavwl more justly : it was 
a proceeding that even Draco would have 
spoken of ti'om the bench, 1 thought, in 
terms of the highest praise. At all events, 
1 should be looked upon by the police au- 
thorities— accustomed to deal witn persons 
actuated by such very dillerent sentiments 
— with something more than cold respect. 
In a word, I don't remember to luve ever 
felt more selfcomplacent than when I took 
my way, after luncheon, the next day (a 
Saturday), to the nearest police station, 
with the intention of supplying the Inspec- 
tor with that mysterious mental aliment 
which Sir Richard Maync calls " informa- 
tion received," 

Having reached the office, and being told 
by the policeman on duty in the ante- 
chamber to " pass on" — as though 1 were 
an apple-woman obstructing the pavement 
—I soon found myself in the presence t>f 
his superior, and undergoing the minutest 
inspection from that sagacious person. 
His eye measured me, as though he had 
been my tailor, from my head to my knees, 
and doubtless would have gone further, 
and literally " taken the length of my foot," 
but for a great counter which intervenetl 
between him and me, and curtailed his in- 
vestigations, although by no means his 
curiosity . I never was so looked at before 
in all my life ; and it was at this moment I 
bej,an to feel regret tliat I had so enjoyed 
the misfortunes of those three victims to 
the P division at the Crystal Palace. 

" I have found a carpet-bag," said I, m a 
hesitating tone. 

' L mph !" returned the Inspector, turn- 
ing over the leaves of a great ledger, and 
looking as though he was about to mention 
that it was his duty to warn me that any 
admission that 1 might make would be 
use»l against me. "Linph!" repeated he, 
still more severely; " that is a very odd 
tiling to ^nd, sir, indccii." 

Now, really, I put it to any one, teas this 
fair? Why should he have said that':' 
We were in London, a populous city, where 
almost everybody who possesses a change 
of raiment also owns a carpet-bag, and is 
liable to lose it. It the celcbratetl New 
Zealander had arrived, and was, with his 
scantily-attired nation, solely in the occu- 
pation of the metropolis, such an innuendo 
could have been hardly justified ; but as it 
was, it seemed to me quite insulting. 

" Sir," said I, (turning, 1 have no doubt, 
very red), "I found it in a hansom." 

" Ah !" returned the Inspe<jtor, with the 
fierce exultation of a wild animal who fan- 
cies he scents blood, " you found it in a 

" Yes," observed I, with irritation ; "I've 
got it now. I don't want it. You may 
send for it if you like." 

" Be good enough to—" No, that's just 
what he did not say. Gratitude I had 
ceased to expect fr<jm this person, but I 
did expect common civility, and I wasdis 

" St«.tc the circumslances," was all he 
said ; and he took un his pen and wrote 
them down with malignant deliberation. 
At this point 1 began in my mind's eye to 
sec the court in the (.Hd Bailey, not from 
the grand-jury box, whcrefrom I had be- 
held it in the flesh, but from the point ot 
view enjoyed by the prisoner in the d»«:k. 
Suapicion, arrest, conviction, (for all I 
knew) penal servitude for life, was what I 
now expected, instead of that autograph 
letter from the Home Secretary compli 
menting me upon my sagacity and recti 
tude, with the receipt of which my ima- 
ginalion had flattered mc as I came along. 
" Now, sir," said he, gloomily, when I 
had quite finisluHl, "you have done very 
wrong, and something entirely unjusti 

Dear mc, dear me I how 1 wished I 
had let B carry home that carpetbag, as 
he had so prcssingly oflcred to do, instead 
of nic. How I wished I had put it behind 
the fire. How I wished I was going to sail 
for Ulaga that evening, per clipper ship 
Swiftture, whose departure I had seen ad- 
vertised on the wall of the police-station as 
I came in. Every detail of what I had re- 
marked coming along the streets crowded 
before my eyes, just as the novelists des- 
cribe them to do in the cases ol condemned 
or moribund persons. The Inspector's 
accents smote upon my car like the strokes 
ot a passing bell. 

" Your manifest duly, sir, was to inform 
the cabman that the property in question, 
— very liliely documents of priceless 

"No," interrupted I, hastily; "hair- 
brushes." The next moment, by the ex- 
pression of his face, I felt that I had made 
a great mistake. 

" Hair-brushes !" said he, slowly, suiting 
the action to the word by slowly stroking 
one of his mutton chop whiskcrr. : " then 
you've opened it, have you?" 

" No, no,'' said 1, imploringly ; " none of 
our keys would fit the lock." Here 1 eaw 
that I had made another unfortunate mis- 

" (), indeed !" was all the Inspector said, 
but he looked volumes, — the whole four 
volumes of the Newgate Calendar. 

" Your obvious duty, m the Jird in- 
stance," returned he, with meaning, " was 
to have given up the property to the cab- 
man in order that it might have been at 
once conveyed t<j the Lost-Parcels' Of- 

" Dear me," cried I, with sudden vehem- 
ence, " so I ought, of course ! I quite for- 
got about the Lost Parcels' Office. " 

"Ah, you knew of it, then, but you for- 
got it," returned the Inspector in a tone of 
sarcasm that I have heard my brother-in- 
law, who is a country magistrate, use to 
poachers found with partriogo nets in their 
accidental possession. " You will be g<KHl 
enough to favor mc with your address." 

I gave it him, of course. I would have 
made him a present of the lease ol my 
house, if it would have mollified him at 
that moment. 

" More than twenty-four hours will have 
elapsed l>efore this carpet bag can be sent 
to ita proper dcsUnation," pursued he; 
" therefore the owner will probably have 
called at the Lost Parcels' Office, and not 
finding it there, will conclude — and indeed 
. the authorities will tell him so— that all 
further search is vain. Cabmen are bound 
to return articles so discovered within 
twelve hours, and if they do not do so, it 
is liecausc they arc thieves." 

" Exactly so," urged I, despairingly ; 
" that is why I deemed it safer to take this 
home with me; I thought the cabman 
might not be trustworthy." 

"You could have taken his number I 
suppose," remarked the Inspector cynical- 
ly. " It is too late to forward the article 
to Scotland-yard to night ; you had better 
bring it hither yourself on Monday. 
Good morning." 

He did not say " GtH)d morning" like a 
parting salutation at all. It secmeil to ex- 
press, •' Y'ou may go now, but on your per- 
sonal recognizances to re appear here with-

with you, nor anything like it. I hare 
got my eye upon you; my myrmidons 
shall have their orders. A man that can 
sec hair-brushes through the leather of a 
carpet-bag, and yet forgets the existence of 
a Lost-Parcels' Office, is not likely to come 

to good ; I shall sec you again. Good 

^_;)^ lu^rmcdiaU JSaUtath waa^ by uo- 
means a day of rest to me. BHck Care 
that sits t^ehind the horseman, seemed al- 
ways to be sitting in front of me in the 
form of a leathern carpet-bag. If an in- 
cubus ever took that form, I pity those of 
lay anceslres.scs who were witches. My whom I had communicated my ap- 
prehensions, pictured her beloved hus- 
band with a mask en (as beheld in Never 
too late to ^U«?7Mi at the Princess's Theatre), 
shorn of his name, and answering to a 
number with four figures in it. We were 
about to retire to rest upon that Simday 
night at leu-thirty, as usual, when the par- 
lor-maid came up to the drawing-room 
Willi a very pale face, to say that there 
was a couple uf policemen in the hall who 
wanted to speak with me. 

" They shall never part us !" exclaimed 
my wife, with a shriek of agony. "O 
Walter, SValter, why did you laugh at 
those pobr people at the Crystal Palace 
who were falsely accused of picking pock- 

I unbatred the shutters and looked out 
into our crescent. Y'cs, as I had suspected, 
there wetc two other policemen watching 
the house from outside. 

" Heavfcn bless you, Polly," said I with 
pathos ; '' you at least will know that I am 
innocent." Then taking advantage of the 
temporary unconsciousness induced by hys- 
terics I tore myself away from her side. 

In our little hall there stood the largest 
policeman I ever saw out of a pantomime, 
and one almost as big was standing behind 
him. Each had a dark lantern stuck in 
hia belt, which gave them an awful ap- 
pearance ; and the cook and the kitchen- 
maiil were regarding them as though they 
were a couple of Guy Fa wkcscs, with un- 
feigned amazement. It was not the 
"amazement" spoken of iu the marriage- 
service; liowtcvr, between them and those 
policemen there was, for once, no tender 
bond of sympathy, I feel certain ; they 
were almost as frightened as their master. 
" Here I am," said I, holding my hand 
before me, as I had seen all heroic crimi- 
nals do upon the stage, when " the game is 
up," and " the darbicb" must be put on, 
and why not with a good grace V 

" Yes, fir," returned the giant, respect- 
fully; "I'm sorry to trouble you, but the 
fact is we susncct there's somebody m that 
empty house (he was Irish, of course) 
"next door: we have been directed to 
watch it, and a certain mark which we set 
upon it has l)een removed, whereby we 
know that some person has entered who 
has no right to be there. The owner is 
out of town, 8{) if you will kindly let us 
get out of your garret window and on to 
the roof—" 

" Gentlemen," crietl I, in a rapture, "the 
whole house is at your sci vice. I respect 
the law above all things. What would 
you take to drink ?" 

The revulsion of feeling was almost too 
much for me. It is unnecessary to describe 
how enthusiastically I seconded the efforts 
of " the force," accompanying them to the 
very roof-top, and only leaving them when 
they made their burglarious entry into the 
next door, and the possibility arose of a 
contest with robbers. They almost fri<'ht- 
ened my eldest child into a tit as they 
trampwl by her apartment, but I assured 
llieiu that she was used to fily, and that il 
w>i.s of no consequence.

in the suppression of "burglaries with vio-

anybo«ly in that uninhabited house or not; 
and I don't care. 

The next morning 1 once more betook 
myself, c)\rpet bag fn Jiand, t<j the police 
station. There was another Inspector 
hitting at the receipt of rascaldom, and I 
had to tell all my story over again. 

" When did you furnish this informa- 
tion .•"" a.skcd this terrible ofilcial, who was 
twice as ferocious as the other. 
" Yesterday," said I. 
" Ycslerday," returned he in an awful 
voice ; "why, 1 was here all day yesterday.

"Slop!" cried I; "I forgot; it was

can arise out of it further?" 

" It's impossililc to say," returned the

" Haju>g " IN Yale CotLEOE.- The 
Yale College " hazing " has begun again. 
The Yale Courant says ; We had hoped 
thai this disgraceful practice had fallen in- 
to such disrepute among us, that we at 
least, while in college, would not be called 
upon to record its occurrence. The mem- 
bers of the senior class will doubtless re- 
member an instande of it which took 
place in their freshman year. The perpe- 
trators were severely punished, not only 
by the action of the faculty, but also by 
the contempt in which the affair was held 
by the students. Since then nothing of 
the sort has come to our notice until a few 
days since. 

One evening last week, just after sun- 
set, a hack drove up to a door of a house 
on Cnttvn street, where a member of '71 
was rooming. What professed tn be an 

old man alightcxl, and informed Mr. 

that some one in the hack wished to sec 
him. Advancing to the door of the hack 
he was forced into it, his mouth stopped, 
and the hack driven to " East Ilock." 
The Sophs (four or five in number), 

who had kidnapped Mr. , then cut 

the hair from the top of bis head, and 
after various other insults, drove away, 
leaving him to make his way back as best 
he could. We have no words to express 
our contempt for such a dastardly sncak- 
ODg performance. 

Clerical T<rblc-Talk. 

Jii. Uilly related tlxc following anecdote, 
WKich was told by "ft" Well-known Irish 
character, Thaddeus Connolly, who used 
to spend much of hia time in wandering 
through Ireland and instructing the lower 
classes in their native language : " 1 \yent," 
.said he, "one Sunday into a church to 
which a new. incumbent had been lately 
appointed. The co'.igregation did not 
exceed half a dozen, but the preacher de- 
livered himself with as much energy and 
allection as if he was addressing a crowd- 
ed liudicuce. After the service I expressed 
to the clergyman my wonder that he 
should preach so fervently to such a small 
number of people. ' Were there but one,' 
said the rector, ' my anxiety for his im 
provemcut would make me equally ener 
getic.' " 

The following year Connolly went into 
the same church ; the conurcgation was 
multiplied seventy fold. The third year 
he found the church full. 

The following has been going the rounds 
of the newspapers. Men seem to forget 
that the distinctions of clean and unclean 
beast were expressly abolished in the vision 
of St. Peter on the house-top of Simon, 
the tanner, just before he was called to 
Cornelius, the centurion : 

Dr. Adam Clark, who liad a strong 
aversion to pork, was called upon to say 
a grace at dinner where the principal 
dish was a roast pig. He is reported to 
have said : " O Lord, if Thou canst bless 
under the Gospel what Thou didst curFc 
under the law, bless this pig." 

When Howland Hill was, some 
ago, in Scotland, he was introduced to an 
aged minister, somewhat resembling him 
self in piety and eccentricity. The old 
man looked at him lor some lime very 
earncetly, and at length said : " Weel, I 
have lieen looking for some teem at the 
leens of your face." " And what do you 
think of it ?" said Mu HUl. " Why, 1 am 
thinking that, if the grace of God hiul na 
changeetyour heart, you would ha' been 
a most 'tremendous rogue." Mr. Hill 
laughed heartily and said ; Well, you have 
just hit the nail on the head. 

Let clergymen beware how they attempt 
to speak in a stilted style to children, or 
ask them questions. Somewhere we saw 
the following story : 

A clergyman, on a Sunday School occa 
sion, was speaking to a large audience ot 
children, when he saw tiiat he must do 
something to arouse their attention. Just 
then he had spoken of Peler, so he i)au8ed, 
and asked if any one of the children could 
tell him anything alwut Peter ? but their 
mouths were all closed. He appealed t«> 
the older scholars— younger scholars, and 
then at last he came to the youngest, and 
he said, "comenow, little ones, shame your 
ciders, and tell me sometlung about Pe- 

" I can," exclaimed a liltle four-year old. 

" Can you ? That is a got)d girl. Well 
come right up here, and tell us all you 
know about Peler." 

The little girl was passed forward to the 

"Now," said the speaker, " let us hear 
what you know about Peter. Speak right 

The little girl spoke : 

"I'eter, Peter, 
Pumpkin cater," etc. 

Oh, dreadful fall. Had the speaker 
spoken nf St. Peter, perhaps the litUc girl 
might have done Ixjltcr. But let those 
who address children beware how they 
trust little minds, lor no one knows 
what associations he may wake nj) 

An American once allenipting to ad- 
dress a Parisian audience in French, ex- 
temporaneously, earnestly exhorted them

A writer iu the Lond«m Mcchnnirs' }fiig 
I nine says : 

It is supposed by some that the mel;il3 
were formed or deposited in sonic past age 
of the world by the agency cither of heat 
or water, during some great convulsions 
of Nature, such as have not been wit- 
nessed in the period embraced by written 
history or tradition. There are reasons 
for doubting the reliability of this r>pin- 
ion. That various mineral substances are 
now in process of formation or develop- 
ment is certain. For instance, the forma- 
tion of stone is as apparent as its disin- 
tegration. On the beach at Lynn, Mass., 
(says the TSrientific Americcn), may be 
seen a conglomeration o" clay and sili- 
cioussand impregnated with ferrcous oxide, 
in all stages, from the separated particles 
to the layers of hardened rock. These 
rocks are merely the particles of sand, co- 
gered and aglutinated by means of the 
clay and the oxide of ir«n, the salt water 
acting as a solvent of the softer particles, 
and the sun's rays compacting and baking 
altogether In one mass. So, also, wc know 
that coal is being formed from peat. The 
intermediate stage is lignite or " brown 
coal," which, in turn, b«;omes coal. 

It is morally certain that gold, silver, 
copper, and some other metals arc now 
in process of lormation or deposition. 
Abandoned silver mines in Peru have 
been found rich in aborcscent deposits of 
the metals on the walls of galleries un- 
used for years. A gold-bearing region 
after having been cleaned of the precious 
metal gives pood results alter the lapse of 
a few years. St> wilh copper. In the Si- 
berian mines not only the precious carbon- 
ate known as malachite, but the metal 
itself, in a state of almost absolute purity, 
is deposited on the walls, roofs, and floors 
of the galleries run under the earth's sur- 
face, fn some places il appears in masses, 
and m others as tree-like formations, with 
trunk and branches similar to a delicate 
moss. What becomes of all the gold and 
silver unav«)idab!y wasted in the process 
of manufacture and the wear of trans- 
mission from hand to hand currency ? It 
is well known that wilh all the care exer- 
cised in the manufacture of these precious 
metals, and notwithstanding their specific 
gravity, an appreciable portion of them is 
utterly wasted ; at least so distributed as 
to be incapable of being collected and used 
again. Is il annihilated ? The teachings 
of science prove this to be ijuMo&sible. 
Nothing is ever wasted. If the particles 
are thrown into the atmosphere, they must 
in time seek the earth's surface. Arc they 
attracted by some miknown power to cer- 
tain localiUes, and if not why should not 
the streets of a busy city bc( omc in time de- 
posits of the precious metals ? Perhaps, 
after all, the old achtmists had an inspi- 
ration of what may yet become un fait 
ac^mpli. When wc understand the won- 
derful process of Nature's laboratory, we 
may possibly imitate her and grow our 
own metals as we now do our own vege- 
tabl(;s; or we may find the philoso- 
pher's stone, and actually collect the parti- 
cles of metals, if we caimot transmute a 
base mineral into one of the precious mct-

An Absurd ^luerj-. 

The following " how is it ?" from a news- 
paper, is of course an absurdity, but it 
gives rise to reflection : 

" Suppose a man and a girl were to get 
married — the man thirty-five years old, 
and the girl five years, this makes the man 
seven times as old as the girl ; they live 
together until the girl is ten years old ; 
this makes the man fi^rty years old, and 
four times as old as the girl]: and they still 
live until she is fifteen, the man would be 
forty-five, this makes the man three times 
as old, and they still live until she is thirty 
years old, this ;:.ake3 the man sixty, only 
twice as old, and soon. Now how long 
would they have t > live to make the girl 
as old as the man':" 

This is as absurd as the girl ot twenty, 
who was about to marry a man of forty, 
and who wept to think that when she 
would be fifty and still vigorous, he would 
be a hundred years old ! It is curious, how- 
ever, when we reflect how su we grow old- 
er, we gain on our elders ; how the man ot 
thirty, whom we looked up to at twenty, 
becomes nearer our own age as we move 
along in years.

Paris papers reveal a new style of thefl 
by which jewelers arc victimized. The 
professor of the ingenious device presents 
himself iu the shop (jf a dealer in dia- 
monds and pearls, and asks to see some 
small unset stones. He is well dressed, 
and wears colored ppcclacles. The stones 
arc laid before him, spread on paper. 
Being very nearsighted, as his glasses 
prove, he is obliged to bring hia eye so near 
to the gems that he can pick them up with 
the tip of his tongue, and he keeps them 
in his mouth until out of the shop. It he 
fears detection, which seldom occurs, he 
swallows his treasure— whence the slang 
name ol " S?.'allow-il-raw," given this class 
of artists by tne thieves' fraternity. One 
of them was caught recently. The dia- 
mond merchant, put upon his guard by a 
victim, said he had no small st<^)ue6, but 
would have a large supply the nc.\t day. 
A policeman was in waiting ; the dia- 
monds were laid out uj>on paper previous- 
ly impregnated with an extremely bitter 
drug, which, when the thief gave his lick, 
acted BO violently on his sense of taste, 
that he was fain to reject what he hatl just 
taken. The policeman appeared, and the 
"Swallow-it-raw " was taken iu the act. 

BuKNS.— In regard to the treatment ot 
burns there is a great diversity of opinion, 
scarcely any two surgeons agreeing as to 
the remedies. All of them are doubtless 
valuable, but there is one which has a 
great reputation— carbon oil, liraewatcr, 
and linseed oil. The great objection to it 
is it* oflensive (xlor, rendering an entire 
ward disagreeable. When the burn ia very 
superficial, simply inUaming or vesicating 
the part, covering it up with flour, and 
then placing a layer of cotlou over it so as 
to exclude the air, makes a very comforta- 
ble dressing. Another method consists in 
applying cold water, and another, warm 
water covered with oiled silk and a band- 
age. Lanl, deprived of salt, and simple 
cerate make plca.sant applications. The 
profession is indebted to l^rof. Gross for 
the introduction of white lead anil linseed 
oil in the treatment of burns. It is one ol 
the very best applications whicii am be 
used, efl'ectualiy excluding tlic air, ami 
being always grateful to the patient. In 
all cases, no matter whether merely the 
skin, or the deeper strut^turesarc involved, 
white lead rubbed up with linseed oil to 
the consistence of paste or paint, and 
placed on with a brush, will be found pro- 
ductive of great relief. There dfxis not 
appear to be any risk from the constitu- 
tional influence of the lead, though it has 
been suggested, to counteract any tenden- 
cy of this kintl, that the patient should 
take occasionally a little sulphate ol mag- 
nesia. — Medical and Surgical Jiejiorter. 

Haviso it Out. — A gentleman riding 
through the country, a few days since, ap- 
proached a fence corner, when his cars 
were greeted by exclamations of anger, ac- 
companied by vigorous thwacks on some 
object that, judging from the dust arising 
from the locality, was anything but patient 
under the affliction. Approaching the 
spot, our informant beheld a tow-headed 
urchin of twelve summers, belaboring, 
with all the strength he was master of, 
what seemed to be a most stubborn speci- 
men of the //en?/, mule. The operation did 
not apparently discommode the beast fur- 
ther than to arouse its " mulishness," and 
to which It gave vent by a series of kicks 
that would do honor to Castello's circus 
ring. At this Juncture, our infomoant 
ventured to remonstrate, when the follow- 
ing explanation was vouchsafed : " Dad

sis, (whack— kick,) and sis, (gratuitous 
kicks,) darn her, bealn me, an' I'm going to

pick the cucumbers with the butt of the 
stem on, and wipe and put them into the 
vessel. When it is full, place a cloth over 
the cucumbers, and a board, nicely fitted, 
over the cloth ; a stone should be placed on 
the board to keep the cucumbers under

A Lesson fou Fak.meks.— Mr. John 
Tucker, of Franklin, N. Y., twelve years 
ago planted apple seeds, from which he 
has raised an orchard of 7:3 trees. He was 
U'3 years of age at ihe time he planted the 
seed. From these trees he last fall gath- 
ered one hundred bushels of fine apples, 
and his orchard has been bearing for the 
past five years. This fact should be an 
example to all young farmers to do like- 
wise. At the time he planted his orchard 
the probabilities were that he -would not 
live long enough to derive any benefit 
therefrom; and very few men would have 
done its he did. 

Keep tue Calves Turifty.— A call 
kept winter and summer in thrifty growth, 
at two years old will make as much, more,

year-old ; yet the owner of the latter has 
pursued liis system, if Rvstem it can be 
called, with the idea he was saving money. 
Keep the thrifty animal two years longer 
in the same w^ay, and sometliing very

Open the mouth ot the chicken, having its 
neck drawn straight, and, as the windpipe 
is opened for breath, put in the instrument, 
and, running it carefully down the full 
length of the w iiidpipe, turn it around aud 
draw it uj<, whea one or more small red 
wornifc, an inch in length, will bo caught in 
the barbs. Wc have taken out four worms 
at one in.scrtion. Two <jr three operations 
are often necessary, but if faitfully per- 
formed, the remedy is sure. As a prevent- 
ive, mix a small (|Uantity of pepper and sul-

Excessive Manuring of Fruit Trees. 
— As the recent animated discussions in 
regard to the deterioration of fruit trees 
have led to tiic pretty general conclusion 
that among other caascs, poverty of soil is 
to be included, there* is danger that the 
opposite will i)revail with some cultivators. 
A fruit tree may be surfeited as -well as 
starved, and no little care is necessary to 
guard against extremes in cither directiim. 
It generally results iu excessive and un- 
natural growth, which is always secured 
at the expense of the (piantity and quality 
of fruit. There is a happy medium wlUch 
the prudent cultivator will adopt. Dry 
soil for fair quality, well worked, and mod- 
erately manured, will be found to answer 
best. For smaller fruits, as strawberries, 
raspberries, blackberries, <kc., a rich soil is 
required. — Uammonton CulturiU.

surements are correctly taken, as the difler- 
ence of an inch will tcil considerably 
on the result. My impression is, that up- 
on a calculation which would be quite cor- 
rect for farmer's ordinary fat stock, an al- 
lowance must be made for extra fat ani- 
mals, and the same deduction when the 
beasts are not ([uitc up to the mark. The 
proportion to be added is usually slated at 

Poin.TRY that have had the range of 
grain fields are in geod condition for early 
fattening for market. Confine aud feed 
them liberally and allow plenty of water 
with ashes or dust to wallow in. Feed 
well while the warm weather cimtiuues, as 
they will fatten much faster and eat less 
grain than when it. becomes cold. Pro- 
mote the laying of hens that are shut up, 
by feeding with scraps of refuse meal. 
Fowls eat a variety of food : all kinds of 
grain and seeds, and preparations made for 
them ; akio most sorts of vegetables, raw 
or cooked, and they are fond of a certain 
quantity of animal food : insects, worms, 
grubs and maggots they search for witii 
avidity. Potatoes form one of the most 
economical articles of food ; but it is essen- 
tial not only that these should be boiled 
or steamed, but tliat they should be given 
warm, as hens do not relish " col 1 taters." 
In most houses there arc many well known 
scraps and refuse that will serve fowls, 
such as crumbs of bread, fragments of pies 
and puddings, and even bits of moat and 
fish. — American Stock Journal.

that the cattle fair at M.akopee will be kept 
up during the whole year— winters as well 
as summers. The fair will be held on the 
first Monday of each month during the win- 
ter. Farmeis have more leisure in winter 
than in summer, and it is presumed the 
winter fairs will be more lar<:ely attended 
than the summer fairs. Buyers are always 
on hand whenever iheie is stock for sale.— 
We see i.o reason why the attendance at 
the winter lulrs may not be larger than 
during the summer. The next fair is on 
Monday next and let there be a gentral 
notice given that the iairs* ill be kept up 
all winter.

Tho Democratic State Committse in 
their Stato address to the people, says : 
'* The record for the year as far as it 
has been made up, shows no diversity 
nor change in the cons'.aui, course of 
public sentiment. In Connecticut the 
radical party was beaten, and Democrat- 
ic State olEcers elected. In Kentucky 
the Democratic majority was -10,000. — 
In California, which gave over 22,000 
Republican majority a year ago, the 
Democratic majority this year is 8,000. 
Moutana, Colorado and New Mexico 
have all elected Democratic delegates 
to Congress. The Radical majority of 
27,000 in Maine has been reduced to 
10,000, The Radical majority in Ohio 
of -12,000 has been obliterated, and a 
Legislature has been elected that will 
choose a Democratic Senator to succeed 
Ben Wade, the ablest, boldest, and most 
dangerous Radical statesman iu the 
United States Senate. Pcnnsjlvania, 
which gave 17,000 Radical majority 
last year, gives a Democratic majority 
of 1,200 this year. The Radical majori- 
ty in Iowa is reduced from o5,000 to 
15,000. The majority iu Indiana instead 
of being 15,000 Republicin. is 10,000 
Democratic. There was a gain of sev 
eral thousand even in Ver.uout. These 
glorious gains amount in the aggregate 
to not less than 110,000 votes, and the
