Hill, vale and wood and stream were dyed In the pale glory of thy beams, As we wondered side by side Once more to tell love s burning t^esms. My loud arm was her living home, My haul within her hand was preeeed, And lore was in each earnest tone, And raptured in each bearing breast. And many a high and fervent row Was breathed from her full heart and mine, While thy calm light was on her brow Like pure religion’s seal and sign. We knew, alas! that we must part, We knew vro must be severed long. Yet joy was in each throbbing heart. For lore Was deep, and faith was strong. A thousand memories of the past. Were busy in each glowing breast, And hope upon the future cast Her rainbow lines—and we were blest. I craved a boon—Oh 1 in that boon There was a wild, delirious bliss— And, didst thou erir gaze, sweet moon. Upon a more impassioned kiss ? The parting came—one moment brief Her dim and fainting form I viewed— Twaa gone—aud there I stood in grief Amid life s awful solitude. Tell me, sweet moon, for thou can st toll, If passion still unchanged Is lier’s Do thoughts of me her heart still swell Among herjnany worshipers ? Say, does *ho sometimes wander now. At eve beneath thy flame, To raise to heaven her angel brow And breathe her absent lover's name ? Ob, when the gentle lids are wet, | |I pray thee, mark each falling gem. And tell mo if my image yet Is pictured tremblingly iu them! Aye, tell me, does her bosom thrill As widely as of yore for me— Does her young heart adore me still, Or is that young heart changed like the Oh let thy beams, that soft If still my love to her is desr.

If he is not a working man, bnt one of those loafers who sit around from day to day, clipping items with shears, intent only on living from the spoils of office he is unworthy of support. Bat if he is a live man, and takes care to present all the items of news that transpire in his vicinity, then giving so much time as ho can to to the world beyond him, he is a credit to the profession, a benefit to the place where his paper is published, and one of the greatest helps and promoters of enter prises the country can produce. It is the duty of those interested in building up cities and towns to patron ize and support their local newspapers first Iu almost every county in the country there is a newspaper published, and it is the duty of the farmers, mechan ics, merchants and property holders there to support the paper, if it be live. At tention will be called to their town.— People will be attracted there. The pa per and its place of pnblication become known. When we see a liyo newspaper we at once think it is printed in a live town, by a live man, for live men do not long remain in dead places. If wo see a sickly looking, half edited and badly printed paper, we nt once conclude that it is published by some ragged, lazy, shiftless, half'Starved, individual, who corresponds exactly, to this respect, with the community surrounding him. Meanwhile, let the country editors do all they can to make their papers inter esting, and then let those immediately surrounding these papers do all they can to support the same, taking care to sub scribe for their home papers, and then, if they have money left or wish papers from abroad to read, let them sultscribe for such os suit tbeir fancy. But let no man who has the interest of his immedi ate section nt heart subscribe for our pa per, or any other published out of the town or county whore ho resides, till he has first subscribed for his home paper.— Pomeroy $ Democrat. There lived ou street, pretending establishment, surrounded by trees and flowers, a young lady who was celebrated for her beauty and accom plishments. She was a blonde, with blue eyes, white teeth, and a heavenly smile—had the prettiest hand and foot that ever were seen—and was tall, lithe and elegant Her wit was delicate, point ed and sparkling, and her mind as supe rior as her person was lovely. The town was at her feet and her suitors were as importunate, ifjnot us Penelope’s, like whom she was continually wooed and yet never won. Iu the midst of her successes came the war, the end of which found her family impoverished, and her self reduced to want for the necessaries of life. But ine still was the prottnd, imperious mistress of hearts as before, and she re fused in quick succession the many offers f marriage that were mode to her. She hap no thought of matrimony as n re source, but had other and totally differ ent prospects in view. She proposed, iu fact, to teace school. A fellow-townsman, a gentleman of wealth and position, and a bachelor, had long been a worshiper ut her shrine. He had houses and lands—estates in country and lots in the city- stocks, interests and investments wher ever they would pay, aud his private establishment on street was simply dial. Seeing how the case stood with whom he loved with his whole soul, ho resolved, after many self-commnn- ings and much reflection, to ask her to be his wife. “Sir,” said sho in answers to his pro posal, “I do not love you, and I cannot marry you.” “Think tho matter over, my dear," said he, “and iu one week from to-day give me your answer.” Upon his return, on the day set, she said to him : ‘Sir, you have wealth, aud I am poor; yon live in a palace, and I, os you see, in a cottage ; and I would like very much to be rich.

To well edit a country newspaper is one of the most difficult undertakings im aginable. It is harder work to well edit a first rate loon! country newspaper than to edit a daily iu a large city, and require more versatility of talent The country editor is a peculiar institution. He has an ardorous time of it If his paper is worth a farthing lie mast make it so by work. It will not do for him to sit down with a pile of exchanges beside him or u his lap, aud, with a pair of shears, cut ■ut this story, that piece of poetry, this bit of war news, that caso of murder, this terrible railway accident, and this piece of personal abuse concerning some po litical opponent—to make up the variety usually fouud iu country newspapers.— It will not do for him to rely upon the scissors nlone to furnish copy by the col- half-column, third-colnmn, or stick- full, as the case may be, with no other ilea than to have it easy for the foreman to make up tho paper. Tho country editor who makes a good paper does it by labor and application. He carefully reads the exchanges.— Keeps himself posted as to what is going He must know something of poli tics, financies, religion, commerce, agri culture, mechanics, fine arts, science, medicine, fashions, and local gossip. He must present to his readers a vari ety ; a little proso nnd a little poetry; something that is humorous, and some thing sentimental. Ho must be ngly, kind, polite, bitter, pleasant—everything by turns and nothing long—or the read ers of the paper will say there is a sumo- to it. If he confines himself to one- thing, they will say he is an old fogy and ambition. If he writes of many things, he has no consistency, and has other desire than to make money and cater to a depraved taste. Ho must visit all the machine shops and prominent enterprises. Ho must write puffs for every store, grocery, shoe- shop, oyster saloon, Ac., in such ner that the proprietor of each will think a finer puff than his neighbors. If he stays in the office all the time, he will know nothing of what is going on out* sike. If he runs about town and is not the office, people will say he is shift less. If lie spends all hia time in read ing, he cannot become conversant with what is going on iu the neighborhood. If he devotee ranch time to local matters, it is not expected that he will be posted os regards national affairs or things far- reaching outside of his sanctum. IIo mast see that his paper goes to press nt u certain time, and that it is filled. He must see to tho collection of money, sod paying out of the same; must pay lor his blank paper, his em ployes, rent, and household expenses. If ho dresses well, )>eople will say that be ia making money, and refuse to pay their subscriptions j for, as a general thing, people do not like to see others getting along iu the world. If he does not dress well, the community at once says he is a poor, shabby devil, unable to support himself—therefore tumble to advise others. It is expected that he will puff every candidate for office, publish everything good concerning him, and keep back everything that is bad. In this respect, he must make black white and white black, stopping not to consider the wear and tear upon conscience, or to think that so soon as the man whose character needa so much bolstering shall bo elected, the editor will be turned upon, forgotten or abased. Many of our country papers would be better than they are, if the people inter ested in tbeir publication would give them a belter support. The country editor has t. hard time of it at best. If the editor is • workingman, and Think of tho Poor. How much of true religion is with the poor! Christ seems to have taken them under his special charge. His Gospel preached to the poor, and this was of the signs that was sent to John tho Baptist in prison. With his own blessed hands he fed the poor by a crea- tivo act, having compassion on thorn when they fainted. His miracles, we have reason to think, were, in tho large majority of the instances, wrought npon tho poor, ami “the common people hard him gladly.” The Apostles at Jerusalem were always anxious that Paul should rememl>er the poor. And when Christ shall sit on his throne of judgment he will make inquest concern ing all we have done, or failed so to do, regard to the hungry, the nuked, the stranger, tho prisoner, and the sick, and will regard ns as having done, or failed to do, ull this to himself. There nre powerful motives to muke ns think of the poor. When it is well with us we should remember them. When we hear the storm beating upon our habitations, nnd yet are securely sheltered, warmed and fed, sitting over our books or among our children, we should think of the poor. iomtkehiiptper interesting, lioisvor- UMEjuinoBomedictna MoUmtocbirt. ■argtun 'It is," said he. And thereupon they pledged to each other their words to bide the hazard. arranged that but three persons should be let into the secret; that should select a friend, and that tho two selected friends were to choose tho third. Miss named tho Hon. Mr. , a prominent member of tho bar, os her friend ; Mr. chose the Rev. Mr. —-—; pastor of the fashionable church on street, as his; aud these two made choice of Dr. , an eminent professor in the Medical College, as the friend of both parties. By these gentle- ineu the preliminaries wore arranged, and the programme was this : The Doctor was to give a party at his house, on a certain splendid Friday evening, at which were to be present 11 the Ifest people of Louisville *’ Evil Friendships. There is nothing in which the young need more caution than in the formation of their friendship. If you form an evil acquaintanceship, yon will surely get snare to your soul. It is so much easier to go wrong than to go right, that he will drag yon downward instead of your being able to lift him np. A friendship founded npon any thing but sound, tuous principles, is not strouger than in the flames. It will not survive self-interests. As soou us the rulers had made Judas their miserable tool iu traying Christ, tliey cured no more him. “What is that to ns ? See thou to that,” was tbeir sneering reply, when he came back, tortured with remorse nt the consequence of his deed. Those who have been your foremost flatterers in the shine, utterly desert you when the dark hours come, no matter what bene fits you have heaped npon him. An Incident iu Calaveras. One day in 1849, an honest miner Calaveras bit himself with a small snake, of the garter variety, aud, either ns a pos sible antidote, or with the determination to enjoy the brief remnant of n wasted life, he applied a brimming jug of whisky to his lips, and kept it there until, like repleted leech—which it iu no other r spect resembled—it fell off. The next day, while the body lay in stato upon a pine slab, and the bereaved partner of the deceased was unbending in a gome of seven-up with a friendly Chinaman, the game was interrupted by a friendly voice, which seemed to proceed from the jaws of the corpse: l say—Jim!" Bereaved partner play ed tho king of spades, claimed “high, and then, looking over his shoulder at the melancholy remains, replied: “Well, what is it, Dave? . I’m busy." “I say— Jim!" repeated the corpse in the same measured tone. With a look of intense annoyance, and muttering something abont “people that could never stay dead more’n a minute,” the bereaved partner rose and stood over the body with his cards in his hand. “Jim,” continued the mighty dead, “how fur’s this thing gone?” “I’ve paid the Chinaman two and a half to dig the grave," responded the bereaved. “Did he strike anything ?” Tho Chi naman looked up ; “Me strikes pay UMIWU 1UUXOU U|J , iuu auiira dolt; me uo belly dead ‘Melicau’ in grave. Me keep ’em claim." The corpse aatuprigidly; “Jim, get my revolver and chose that pig-tail off. Jump his damn sepulchre, and tax his camp five dollars each for prospectin’ on the pub- lie domain.

Aly wife will Dear me, Sister So-and-so wears such a thing, and I want to look as well as 'sho does; and ybn have plenty of means, Brigham; oh” yes, you have plen ty of mean-, ami yon cun buy it as well as not” Well, all that I have said, and my general reply is: “If lam pressed to tho necessity of indulging my family mother wore mother before her wore, and wo until the day of her death, when occasion to wear a cloak; and when she left tliis place for the next apartment, she was forty-nine years old, nnd they went to her daughter. I do not know what has become of them. Sho did not take a cloak worth $25, $30, $40, or $50, il sit down in it with a child with a piece of meat in each hand to grease it haps, whilo wearing it, take up that lias a piece of chicken iu one hand and a piece of pork in the other, or a cup of milk to drink, and as likely as not sorno of it is spilled on her .dress, aud then the/ say, “well, I declare my dress spoiled.” I recollect very well, and ■ do others iu this room, when our fathers and mothers raised the flax and the wool, and when it was carded with hand-cards, spun on hand-wheels, and woven into' cloth on hand-looms; and in this way the wants of the family had to g> without. But now every woman wants a sewing machine. What for?— To do her sow ng. Well, but sho can do a hundred times as much sewing with a machine us she could by hand, aud she ;loes not need a machine more than one day iu two or three weeks. “Ob, yes,” says she, “I want my sewing machine every day in my life.” “What are you going to do with it?” *' I atu goiug to sew,” and when the sowing machine is procured they want a hundred times as much cloth as they used to have. Now, they want a hired girl for every child, and a hired man to every cow in the yard. A Frenchman who has Killed his Forty-third Sentinel. In looking over my files of journals, 1 find mention in September of a young named Hoff, who boasted of having killed eight German sentinel. The next Hon. Mr. who was to have a li cense in blank, ready to be filled nt a moment’s warning, and was to hold Mr. —’s check for $100,000; and the Rev. Mr. x form tho marriage ceremony, if callei so to do. The dice were to be thrown ii Hon. Mr. ’s study, whence tho quintette were to proceed to the party, whore, if Miss — lost, they were to celebrate the wedding, and, if she won, thev were to mingle with the guests without remark. At precisely 9 o’clock on tho eventful evening, the players and their friends met in the Hon. Mr. —'h study. By agreement of the parties themselves, they were to throw poker dice, and to cut cards for the first throw. The gen tleman cut a queen and the lady a jack, and now came the tug of war. He was cool, calm and pale ; alio was statuesque, imperious aud collected. Hia lips were compressed; hers were formed into an extended arch spanning the whole mouth and completing the Ihjw. The Iwaiu sat on opposite sides of a small table, and the umpires stood overlooking them. The dice-box being set before him; Mr. placed his finger over the top, and with the thumb clasping the side, he gave it a shake and threw two fours and two deuces. Putting asido the fours he threw again, nnd threw another four. Then throwing tho two remaining dice. ho threw two Jives, no hud throw therefore, n full—three fours and two fives. And now came Miss ’s turn. was a thrilling moment, aud the result of her silk dress in tho stillness of that room sounded like the tree tops wiuu. She began by drawing off her right glove, exposing a hand of exqaisite beauty and delicacy, on the fore-finger of which sparkled a diamond. Then, taking up the box quickly, she gave it a long shake in the air, und turning it down npon the table she threw—noth ing 1 A cloud thereupon passed over her faco, and the arch of her lips assumed a still more bow-like curvature. But noth ing dannted, she at once retook the box and threw again—this time turning np four deuces! and the fifth dice cocked ! Terrible mischance! Miserable luck Again she threw, and threw two deuces and two trays. Putting all the dice back into the box, she had but one oth er nnd the last throw, upon which now rested her only chance. For tho first time since she set down she spoke, ask- then, all of a sudden, riie snatched np the dice box and shook it vehemently, and threw three fours and two sixes, and icon! And did she take the money, you ask I answer most emphatically, she did Here endeth my second lesson. tQT The Chicago girl whose “going*! on" are described below, exposes one of the reasons why divorces ore so popular in that city: The other day a dashing girl of some what fast proclivities was walking np Dearborn street with her lover, when an express team, driven at a rather rapid rate approached. The girl is an excellent horse-woman, and a littlo laughing doubt expressed on the part of tho young gen tleman aa to her equestrian abilities in duced her to push forward at full speed, grasp the hone by the rein and jump npon bis back, much to the horror of the astonished expressman, who found the office of driver so summarily and extraor dinarily taken out of his hands. After riding for a couple of blocks likea female John Gilpin, the young lady reined in her steed, descended from her elevation, aud with a nod to the expressman rejoined her diacomfitted lover, who will never again express doubt of her spirit or her horsemanship.

Hint to Young Journalists.—The Courier^Journal, in the course of a long article on journalism, has the following paragraph which young aspirants to edi- toriul fame may take to heart: Wonderful Work of 8argery. manufacture of a human face. The Canton (Illinois) Register of a late date hod this account of a wonderful sur gical operation: “ There lives in this city a young lady name Lizzie Twineham. Some: years ago, when she was but a young girl, she waa attacked with an ulceration of the face, which entirely destroyed her nose, upper lip and nearly all • the adjacent bones. By the time the ravages of the disease-were arrested, she was the moat hideous-looking being that was ever gazed upon. Her eyes and forehead and mouth there was nothing but a Urge unsightly hole, in which the raw and purple flesh was visible away into the throat. None could look upon her with out taming away in horror. Her parents were poor, and sho was compelled to leave home. She sought work, but her presenoe was so disagreeable on aooount of her terrible affliction, that she oould not obtain a situation. About four yean ago ahe found herself out oi employment, and with no home. She was advraed to go to the poor house. Despair and wretch ednoss seemed to be her lot Shunned she was by society, and abandoned by all, her sensitive nature was racked with torment she seriously contemplated sui cide. Just at this time, a friend sug gested that probably Dr. Wright of this city, might be able to remedy deformity and improved*) appearance of her face. With tears in her eyes and with hut faint hope, she called upon him. At first the doctor thought it was a hopeless case, but the despondent and despairing con dition of the gixl’a mind induced him to take the cose under serious consideration. He oonsnlted with Dr. J. H. Rainey, dentist, in regard to the feasibility of supplying teeth and the upper jaw, which had been entirely eaten away.— After examination. Dr. Rainey thought he would be able to supply the deficien cy. Dr. Wright then determined to en ter upon the work of making a new face for the young woman. “ The first business \ upper lip. This was Journalism does not come like reading id writing, altogether by nature, albeit nature 1ms much to do with it; and so there is lmrdly a more useless appendage in a newspaper office than a youth of culture aud ambition, who has a turn for kid glovos and a nice sense of the glory of a silk hut But there is always room for a go-ahead chap, with a man’s heart in hintf and a skull full of brains stuck on to it, a chap who dosen’j mind crashing his head gear down over his eyes, aud wadding his breeches in his boots and starting after a rumor like a Scotch terrier after a rat, pursuing it through all tho subterraneous alleys and holes, the highways and the by-ways, the tdnms and dens of town and country, to'supply au „ n exceedingly diffiicult and delicate operation. The disease had not only destroyed the lip, but it had resulted in the healing pro cess. iu connecting the flesh of each cheek to the stub of the upper jaw bone in an unnatural manner.

Beast Butler tor Phesidknt.—Gen eral Butler, on his way to Washington, spent a day iu New York. An intelligent correspondent says: closeted the greater part of the day with a number of prominent politi cians, with reference, it is understood, to such future arrangements as will bring him before the country as a Presidential candidate on the Alabama claims plat form, strengthened by a Canoda-nnncxa- tion plank, nnd possibly by another favoring the absorption of Mexico. As I wrote a few days ago, this idea will tuke form aud at u public meeting to be held hero its soou ns the gentleman from Massachusetts names tho time. To tho above it may bo added that steps have been taken iu tho South to give certain States to General Butler ijn the next national Convention, and his friends profess that they are receiving much encouragement.—Pittefatrg Com• dal fi^y-The New York Day Book, out of patience with trimmers, third party men, bolters el id omne genus, thus moralizes “ What need has tho Democratic party to make any sacrifice of principle or character with the insignificant number of mongrel .discontents ? We have al ready in our hands States enough to make a good majority in the Presidential Electoral College. All these we are now to keep, besides gaining two or three more—that is, if we do not bargain away our strength, aud sell ourselves to the devil and tho negroes.” The Press of Georgia*—There ninety-one newspapers published Georgia. Of these fourteen are issued daily, seven try-weekly, five semi-weekly, one semi-monthly, and one bi-monthly. Seventy-one are devoted to politics and general news, four to religion, five to literature nnd education, two to temper ance and ten to agriculture. re^Not long ago the body of a deceas ed native was carried, down to the banka of the Jumna, at Etowah, In- India'to be burned. The pile was made and the wood was. lighted, and, while waiting so as to give some little time for a good blaze, the men moved off to a lit tle distance, squatting themcslves down to have a smoke. . A huge crocodile,- seemingly, watching their movements, rushed out of tho water at this point of the ceremony, seized the corpse end doub led back, making tremendous headway into the river with the body between lua i : if he is a scholar, and, in either event both, is not likely to bo damaged iu I morals by his contact with crime.

At all events, tho ... perience is essential, and he who thinks himself above it had l>cst leave jour nalism to supply itself, as it surely will, with more ardent nnd more active upon the inside. After this was done, aud the wounds healed, a picco of flesh was taken from the bock part of the cheek and transplanted to form a lijy— This was a most extraordinary operation, b was completely successful. ‘ This lip being formed, the next step was to supply a nose. This required several operations. A piece of flesh was taken from the forehead in such a man ner as to scarcely leavo a scar, and brought down and made to grow where the nose should be. Other pieces were taken from each cheek, and applied in the same manner. “It was necessary that mouths should intervene between each operation, that the parts might become perfectly healed. I he different operations were eminently successful, and the work is now com plete. Dr. Rainey has supplied the teeth aud a biid?e for the nose, which holds it a the natural manner. A stranger meeting her would never imagine that sho was once without a nose or up per lip. Sho would pass in company without special observation on account of any deformity. Georgia. Hurrah for old Georgia I Hurrah for the wliito Democracy of Georgia I She lias been true to her instinctive love of liberty and right, and to her traditional renown for intelligence and bravery, and has fought her enemy and whipped him. The victory is recorded in n large majori ty in tho Legislature, aud five out of the seven Congressmen of the State. Gov ernor Bullock has to be tolerated anoth- r . for he was not in the field to be hoisted as a trophy of justice on tho spear of tlio Georgia Democracy. We heartily congratulate the noble old State on her triumph, the news of which will send u thrill of joy from ond to end through this wide land of States. Grant’s Attorney General was sent to Georgia to lick an election law, into a sliajMi to make the Radical victory wire, Three thousand Federal bayonets failed of tho purpose for which they were nnlawfnlly sent, and Georgia fol lows np North Carolina, Now Y'ork and Alabama, to enforce the lesson upon that would be military tyrant, that tho spirit of Democracy is not yet so far crushed that it dares not to vote its convictions, its principles and its judgments in the presence of American soldiers. Grunt lias made many stnpid blunders ; but his grandest Jiasco in political tactics is his new bayonet exercise. If a sensible idea can get into his head, he must, by this time, have learned that tho people ave not yet prepared for the yoke of his imperial government. Georgia counts one more Btate in the column of Demo cratic States for 1872. Hurrah for Georgia 1 As one of her sons, we would hug her for her manly fight and splen did victory.—Mobile Register. Georgia Senators. The Chicago Tribune (Rad.) thus pre sents the merits of the Georgia Senatorial squabble in a nut shell: ‘The real question for the Senate to determine is whether a State Legislature, after having once performed its constitu tional duty of electing Senators, can ihange its mind and elect others to the tame places. If it can do so, then there s no longer any certainty as to who are Senators and who are not. We do not believe that the Senate can afford to tablish such a precedent as would bo __ toblished by the admission of Messrs. Farrow and Whiteley to seats for which Messrs. Hill and Miller had been pre viously chosen by a Legislature at that time unobjectionable.” A Nick Man Fob a Pulpit.—Chicago, Dec. 11.—Rev. S. A. Holt, a Universal- ist clergyman, residing in Belvidere, HI, was arrested at the Railroad depot in Aurora yesterday for an outrageous ex- poseure of his person in the ladies wait ing-room when it was well filled with persons of both sexes.

Sound Advice.—The December num ber of the Southern Cultivator, just re ceived, closes its ‘Thoughts for the Month with the following sound and sensible advice: With tho experience of the closing year, fresh in mind, the farmer should now devote himself to maturing his plans for another year and ■ readers will pardon us—we will take the liberty of offering one little piece of advice: Make your arrange ments to use still less labor than ever be fore. Do this either by planting more largely of crops which require compara tively little labor, or by substituting ma chines for human labor. Just there, in judgment, lies the solution of the much-vexed labor question. Instead of renting your lands to negroes, who make little or nothing on it, and work it jast enough to prevent it from recuperating, and thus benefit neither yon nor them selves, sow it down in small grain, grass es and clover—these require little labor and yield handsome returns, and will, moreover, be the most efficient means for stopping gullies and restoring (what most of our lands need so badly,) a good supply of vegetable matter to the soil. A Living Head on a Dead Body.— George Wittlcs, a sailor, fell dowo- the hatchway of the steamer Brazil on the 28th of October, and his neck was bro ken. His body was paralyzed. He gmdnally wasted away and died yester day at the Centre StreeT ” Street Hospital. Wit- ties presented the remarkable spectacle of a living head on a dead body for forty- nine days. His case naturally attracted the attention of all the medical men of this and other cities.—N. Y. Sun. uMr. Krupp, the proprietor of the famous foundry at Essden, Prussia, has perfected a new cannon for the aerial warefare against balloons.* It is a rifled steel gun of five feet in length and throws a ball of one and a half inches in diame ter. It is attached to a perpendicular shaft, andean easily by turned in any re quired direction. This ingenious gun has been forwarded to Versailles to be tried against the balloons by which the Parisians carry their Greencastle, Franklin county, Pennsylvania, has a colored man who has doable orgaization, and can change his heart in.fonr different positions, while his bowels revolve around like a ball with great rapidity, backward and forward, and when their motion ceases an extra set of ribs slide down and cover the entire abdomen. He says he does not suffer in them^sl from this curious freak of nature. ■w^> writer in Paris intimates that the Prussian celebrities hid better not be prodigal of their persons if-they ever expected to get into that city, as there are plenty of French would-be Wilkes Booths ready to make short work of King, Prince, 1 or Bismarck, or, for that matter, “ the whole bilin* of ’em,” If they can but get a chance. 5* ■»■■■ - - • -- £
