It the first plaee make your friends welcome; but do not make a fussy parade or show' in doing it. It you can possibly do So avoid cooking on their account; it makes a person feel uncomfortable to find themselves the occasion of extra trouble. Better by lar give them without comment the best the house alrords ready prepar ed, and spend the time of the visit in tbeir society. It is generally sup posed our friends are not obliged to make viisils to supply the deficiencies at home; and we are to take their visit as a desire for our socidty rath er than the costly viands with which We may load our table. When friends come to see you from a distance, be particularly careful not to have them imagine their visit ill-timed ; do not complain of poor servants, or want of room to make them feel as comfortable as you would wish. If you have a good room give jt to them; if on the other band your : accomn»odalions are not such as you would desire, on their account and your own, make no apology, do not-let them see your mortification, bdt act as though you felt satisfied with youself and the world. If you have aH yon i*eed and your friends*lfeVe hardly aS much of this world as would be for their comfort, be careful not to wound their feelings by an ostentalious show of the com forts you happen to be blessed >viih, but appear as though friends were accustomed to everjp luxury, and these trifles were only a matter of course. When a friend arrives it is expect ed they need refreshment both of toilet and table; as sooh as congrat* ulations are over and their luggage arried, show them to iheir rooms. Be sure that every article ntfeded is there before you' go up. Do not be obliged to call for water, towels, etc., but let them think the room was in order for company before their arrival. A bit of meat relishes well after a journey, if it can beobtainad with out too much trouble. Do not hurry your guests at their toilet, but be ready as soon as they havd finished their toilet to serve refreshments. Allow them to propose retiring at night, instead of saying yourself, “Our friends must be fatigued with their jemrcey, and we will fattre early on their account.” If convenient, their room should be put in order white breakfast is serving, if not, as soon as possible after. Do not allow a gudat ever to feel that you aw potting yourself'td trouble on their account. If you trfakg changes, do it: quietly,- that it not be noticed.

Saxe, says : “Mr. Saxe brought down the house by hie anecdotes of French wii and vivacity. As illustrative of the formers Several gentleman, not long gince, a Frenchman among the number, were discussing Gen. Ben. Butler, each expressing his own views of that illustrious personage. Said one, an admirer of tbe man, ‘You may say what you please of Gen. Butler, be. did one good thing while at New Orleans iby bis wise and sanitary measures he raved that city from the plague of yellow fever during his reign there.* ‘My good fellow,’ responded the Frenchman, ‘do you not believe in God ? How can you talk so ? Do you thiuk tbe Almighty would suffer one city to be cursed the same time by two such plagues as Ben Butler and the yw low fever ? No! no I C’est imposts, ble! C’est impossible !* [Prolong ed laughter and applause.]” “ Wmen do you think the merriest place in existence f* “That immediately above the atmosphere which surrounds the earth. ’ “Why so ? ’.* “Because there all bodies lose their gravity Diligence va Hatdteantea. Two boys were apprenticed ina carpenter’s shop. One determined to make himself a thorough work man ; the other “didn’t care.” One read and studied, and got books to help him understand the principles of his trade. He spent his evenings at home reading. The other liked tuu best. He often went with other boys to have “a good time.” “Come,” he often said to his shop mate, “leave your books; go with us. W bat’s the use of all this read ing?” “If I waste these golden moments,” was, the boy’s answer, “I shall lose what I can never make up.” While the boys were sttil appren deed, an offer of 22,000 appeared in the newspapers for tbe best plan of a Stale House, to be both in one of the Eastern Stales. Tbe studious boy saw the advertisment, and de tsrmined to try for it. After careful study, he drew out his plans and sent them to the committee. We suppose he did not really expect to giin the prize ; bill, still he thought, “ there is notbiqg like trying.” In about a week afterward a gentleman arrived at the carpenter’s shop and asked an architect by tbe name of, Washington Wilberforce lived there. “No,” said the architect, “but I havd an apprentice by that name.” “Let’s see him,” said the geqtle» man.' “j, The young lad was summoned, and informed that his plan was ac, cepted, and that the $9,000 Were his. The gentlemen then said the boy must put up the building, and his employer was so proud of bis suc cess that he willingly gave him his time and let him go. This studious young carpenter became one of first architects of the country. He made a fortune, and stands bigjk in the es teem of every body, 1 while his lellow appreniicecan hardly earn food for himself and family by hid daily la bor.

Street Car Improvement.—A nove mechanical device has recently been patented by an inventor of New Or leans, La., Mr. Chas. B. Broadwell, for replacing street-cars on the track in case of running off, and also to enable the cars to be moved on curves more easily than when made in the usuual manner. In order to do ibis the inventor provides a fifth or supplemental wheel centrally at tbe front of the car. This wheel is pivoted upon a vertical arbor, which may be elevated or depressed by a screw and hand-wheel on the arbor, which latter has at iu upper end a crank or horizontal lever. By fore ing down the arbor, the front wheels of tbe car are lifted, the whole weight resting on the rear pair of wheels and on the fifth wheel. By turning the latter in any direction, the front of the car may be swung iu a corres ponding direction to bting the frout wheels over the traek, which done 1 they ate lowered thereon. In turn ing curves, the front wheels are lift, ed from the track in tbe same man tier; the direction of the fifth or guiding wheel being, preferably, made to run on a central grooved rail, laid for it to run upon. The same apparatus is designed to be used in running cars from one track to another, dispensing with the ne cessity of switches. Mr. Broadwell has assigned a one-half interest in his invention to Mr. Ignatius Caulfield, also of New Orleans. [N. O Pica yune. Os late the science of war has u surped the place of all other sciences in talk and discussion; and while in one quarter lectures on tactics have bees given to officers, in an other a committee has been appoint ed to try whether balloons can real ly be made useful for military pur poses. The old question of breech loaders versus muzzle-loaders is still being argued, and therewith is mix ed the question as to the best gun for shipboard, and the best for use in the field. In some cases, the gon that would send tbe heavyest shot to the greatest distance would be the favorite; and trials have been made at Woolwich of a gun which weighs thirtyfive tons and throws a sevea hundred-pound shot, Its range has not yet been tried ; but far defensive purposes there can be no doubt of its formidable character. With all this is mixed up the important question of gun powder, which was settled last year by an “Explosion Commit tee,” who decided in favor of a kind which, from its shape, is named “pebble-powder." More execolion can be done with this at a thousand yards’ distance, and with less strain and injury to the guo, than could have been done at ten yards with the powder formerly to use. Mach ingenuity has also bora «xp«steted in discussing tbe appliance for hospital use in the field, and for the commis sariat ; and although in these things there is much to adinire, there is at the same time much which confirms a reflective mind in its impression, that of all the ways of trying to set tle a dispute, war is the very stupid est, — Chamber's Journal. A happy life is made up of happy thoughts, and man should be a very miser in hoarding conscientiously every mill of tbe true coin. It is another’s fault if he be un grateful, but it is mine if I do not give. To find one thankful man, I will oblige many that are not so.— Seneca.

That Ring of Saturn. The Astronomische Nachricten says Prof. Siruve, of Pultowa, has been for years watching the rings of Sat urn ; and the inner one of the three rings, an obscure, partly transparent mass of what appeared to be vapor has been seen (o approach the body of the planet, and to widen it dis lance from the other rings, which seemed to be fluid in character, or perhaps made up of myriads ol small bodies, moving together like the streams of meteors which supply tbe meteoric showers. But during several months past this inner ling has fallen more rapidly, and finally the attraction ofSaturn entirely over came the centrifugal force, and it closed upon the body of the planet, forming a belt, which was gradual ly diffused over its surface, so that there is now no traces of the ring left. Is this to be the fate of the other rings? or will they ultimately gather into satellites ? HP" A well known banker oflowa City has just returned from Europe. On being askeci what he thought of Pompeii, be said “that it was an elegant place, but a good deal out of repair.” “Sambo, did you ever see the Catskill Mountains ?” “No, sah ; but I’ve seen ’em kill mice.” An Irish magistrate, censuring some boys for loitering in the street, argued, “If everybody were to stand in the street, bow oould anybody get by?” A gentleman, evidently not of the period, declares that he can tell whenever he crosses the border of Massachusetts, because all the wo men begin to have “views.” An auctioneer selling books, being asked by a suspicious customer, "Is that binding calf? ” replied : “Come up, my good sir; put your hands on it, and see it there is any fellow-feel ing.” • : j ;• " ’ Anxious Traveler—“ Hullo, there !
