—The “relic” fever has caused con -idera
ble damage to portions of Ford’s theatre in
Washington, where Booth killed Mr.Lincoln.
That portion of the stage carpet upon whi.h
Booth leaped from the President's box has
been cut away for a diameter of four feet.
The latest “manifestation” of the relic fever
is that of a visitor who went into the saloon
attached to the theatre, and a-ked the bar
tender : “Have you the same bottle on hand
out of which Booth drank on the night of
the assassinatiog ?" “Yes, sir.” “And the
same braudy 41. it ?” “Yes, sir.” Can I
have a drink or the snme brandy out of the
same bottle?" “Ye 9, sir." “Let’s have it.’*
The victor tastes the brandy, makes s wiy
face, and continues :—“And that a the same
brandy that Booth drank?” “Ye9,-sir.’’—
“Well I don’t wonder that he killed the
President. A drink of that brandy would
make a man kill his grandmother.” r
—A German thus describedfian accident:
“Vonce, a long vile ago, I went iutos mine

some peaches to make mine vrow a plum

branch, I vail irom the lowermost limb, mit
von leg on both sides of the fence, and Mkh
to stove mine outside in.”
Equally lucid was Aiynheer Yan Dunk’s
account of his ascent of the Alleghenies.
Said he: “I vas going up der mountain mit
myself, ven my foot sblipped himself on der
ice, and I coomed down der mountain, on
der proad of mine pack, mit mine face stickla
in der mut, and dare I stbood all der times.”
—On Tuesday of last week a large black
bear, belonging to the Agricultural Museum
of the State Normal Schools at Ypsilauti,
Mich., broke loose, and in the attempt tore
capture him one ot the students was attack
ed and horrible mangled before assistance
could reach him. The bear could easily
have been killed, but it was desired to keep
him as a specimen in the Zoological Depart
ment of the State Museum. Ue showed
great ferocity to the whole human family,
and for a long time refused to go to his quar
ters, but finally followed a tame “grizzly”
into an icehouse.
Asa precedent for the rapidity with which
execuiion followed sentence, in the Conspi
racy Tiiaf, the case of Bellingham, the mur
derer ot Mr. Percival, is cited. He commit
ted the crime late in the afternoon, Monday,
May 11th, 1812. His trial was on at the Old
Bailey on Friday, the 15lh ; be was at once
found guilty, and was executed at 8 o'clock
on the morning of Monday the 18th—a full

we have,” replied theyouDggentleman, face
tiously, “but can’t you sharpen wits ?"
“Yes, if you’ve got any,” was the prompt re
tort, leaving the interrogator rather at a lost
to produce the article.
—While some of the oil enthusiasts were
prospecting in Venango county, they discov
ered the foundation of a house which must
have been built there some years ago by the
French. Over the walls stood tbs stump of
a chesnut tree, two feet in diameter. Near
the bouse was a kettle cut out of a solid
rock, which evidently had been used for
smelting metals, either lead or silver, which
is supposed to abound iu that neighborhood.
—Another plesiosrurus has been discover
ed in Dorsetshire, England. This fossil,
though not so perfect as ihe magnificent one
acquired by the British Museum last year, is
yet a remarkably fine specimen, aud, being
m stone, is in good preservation. Portions
of the skeleton have been submitted to Prof.
Owen, who has pronounced them to belong
to an undescribed and unnamed species.
—President Lincoln gave bis opinion of tbs
•Fremont party last fal, by turning to Ist
