The beat uv tbo crenin, or the str'njth

Metb-iwt I wuz in some kind uv a temple;
and in a sort uv a court in (be centre, on a
couch, ther lay the form uv a expirin giint.
Tis giant wux a exceedinly hefty one the
largest I bed ever seen, even in dretm..
He wuz parshelly clad in armor, indikntin

a strong box lnfffull uv tresbcr. Sttndin
over him and fnnnin him anxiously, vuz a
fcmile dressed in anteek coDtonm, wich I
recognized to-wunst cz tbe Goddess uv Lib

I found mvseU ther, confrontin this fern tie.
"Madam!" scd I.'"who is this gallant
"It is my second son, Republilinisra,"
"In a bad way," I remarkt, notiein bow

"Alas, sir!" retorted she, "he i. Iltn

piz we didn't put him in the front. Cbnse
utabbed him vihuly; tho tbat didn't hurt
liim much, coz the "old man hed wnstid hi

"But these didn't bring bim to bis pres

J'Jfot altogether. He hed Trend wich

and brothers, and uncles, nnd brothers-in-law,
and nephews, into places wher tbey

yatid, snpposin tbey wuz grate, turned out
to bejery small, nnd them wich bed binbis

Ther wax locebe wich took his name and
snekt the peerjlf, and the peepte turned op

and spare bim, out they wuz infuriated and
woodent listen. Thit sore, (she pintid to

it struck ia.. Good bcb. wich djdcni toe,
that these same leeches, ef tbey lived, and
tbese same cussid disease, ef not cured,
wood fasten onto whoever cum into power,
the same ez they did onto my son, assault

bim be wood live longer to take off less to-

'I want it all off afore I die,' wuz bis con

than they bed ought to. Then, in nddisbun
to tbe diseases be ketcbed from ihe rotten
cusses who got close to bim, he bed his en

At this pint the giint giv n convulsive

throat, his bands reined, ind with a groin
b-tiied. The (to IdsBiirei'ked and fell on

In my dreem, my visbun extended ez far ez

Career Of the Grcarlnpoator aad
In 1836 Louis Bompirte, an unknown
and not particularly respectable refugee, en
tered Strasbourg in a quii t manner, took a
small room at one of the hotels, and pro
claimed himelf Emperor of the Fiienchnnd
heir of the hero of Austerlitz. One regi
ment of the garrison, through tbe influence
of their colonel, accepted bim, and shouted

and placed it on the standard. Then he
imrchcd to tbe barracks and appealed to
the otner troops, but they shut tbo gates

J unfortunate pretender, dragged dripping
nnd dishonored from tbe waves tbrouzh
which he was trying to esc ipe, was once

Having now made bimself ridiculous, it

ing ridic lous about tint; so Louis Bona-
pirt'bccvneEmprrorNipoleon III. Upon
tuts found mon 01 cmi- be Duilt up cue
worst system of despotism which modern
Europe baa y.et hid to endure. He crushed
the French nation with nn iron hand ; and,
emulous of his uncle's ambition, hut with
out a particle of his uncle's military gi mux,
he made bimself an international nuianc-,
tbe enemy of every good government in Eu
rope, tor soms inscrutable reason per
haps as a punishm-nt for sin Heaven h is
permitted bim for nearly twenty years to
keep the world in a turmoil. At last the
end seems near, and the huge fabrio of
fraud is breaking up.
Two weeks ngo he ret out for tbc Rhine,
very much as in 1836 he set out for Stras
bourg. His object in tbe earlier adven
ture was to march triumphnt upon Paris.
His object in the litter w is to ride in glory
to Berlin. In both cases he was well nup"
plied with proclamations, hut rather insuf
ficiently provided with everything else, and
in both cases history will have to record an
ignomininns failure. King William has
driven I im out of tbe Pilitinate ns easily
as Col. T lillaudier put him the gu ird hi'us'e
at Strasbourg or Puvgcllier drove bim inta
the water at Bouligne. The soundinz
speech, with which he began his campaign,
the carefully arranged tbeat-ical effects,
the tinsel, the rouge, the lime-lights, and
the tableaux, what are they now but the
dismal ornaments of an unsuccessful spec
tide? What imagination is strong enough
to imigfnc tbe empire of Napoleon HI. ever
regaining tbe delusive glory which belong
ed to it twnweeksago? The edifice which
h declared had been crowned by the frcu
dulent vote of the 8th of May is filling to
peieea Iilco a house of cirds. A victory in
the fHd. if it come at once, msv postpone
the finil overthrow; but for Nipuh-on there
i no longer the chance of ealvition. No
glory which may hereafter crown th French
standards will be refl-cted upon bim. He
will never share tbe liurels of bis legions.
he will have no part in their possible tri
umpns, and their battles henceforth will
notbe fousht for the support of his throne.
A sinjle conflict on the Rhine frontier has
been his ruin. Tha noise of a single canon
ade has amused France from her twenty
years' sle-p; she rubs her eywi, and discov
ers that she hvs been submitting to a sham
hero, who cannot help her in hr hour of

considerable interest, the progress of the
Chartist party in London, day by day grow

oe auraniageous to nim in that future of
which be neverdespaired. II -nee be wander

in 1848, waa occasioning tb: English gov
ernment no little uneasiness and trouble.
When the Chartist party mustered in that
year, nnd announced their intention to
march to Hyde Park fifty thousand strong,
rumors of violence and riot stirred the
heart of tho great lit v.
"Tho Bank of England, to which every
Englishman looked with solemn awe and
respect, was to bo attacked and pillaged
the law was to be trampled under foot, if
tbe demands of tbe party were not consid
ered. "When that day came London surged and
heaved, and the Tory loyalixts mustered to
the defence of law nnd order in great num
bers, nnd became, for the time being, sworn
officers to pregprve the peace.
"An old gentleman, now nn assistant
assessor of internal revenue in this city,
was then the head teacher of n parochial
school in the hamlet of Ratcliffi Stepney,
in the eastern pirt of London. His school,
with others, was di'missed for tbe day, and
a magistrate swore in the teachers, and
everr man in tbe neighborhood who would
volunteer, as special constable, to nssist
in preserving law and order. Scores of
volunteers were mustered, ordered to ren
dezvous in the school building of our old
friend, who was directed to assume com
mand of the specials. Among the men un
der bim that day was one Louis Napoleon,
then a reputed lounger or loafer about
London, now the Emperor of France, ne

disnifi-d bearing attracted tbe attention of
his fellow-specials, who were not accouiin
ted with his persin. His dreams of future
greatness were so unreal then that few re-
carded him more than thorimmltitcrratber
worthless, nephew of tbc-great Bonaparte.
"Fortunately the setvics or the specials
under command of oilr old friend were not
required that day, nnd at six o'clock, when
all possible danger had passed, the trus
tee, ordered a lunch of bread and cheese
and porter for the whole command. Na

France, on its eastern frontier. It is sun-
posed to bare been founded by tbe Romans,
who erected it as a barrier against the in
cursions of the Germans, who, however,
ultimately made themselves master of it,
and retained possession till the reign of
uiovis, woo again drove tbem back bcyood
the Rhine. In the sixth century it changed
its ancient name of Arger.torntum for that
of Strasburg, and in the b'ginning of tbe
tenin century became subject to the Em
peror of Germany. In 1681 it became per
manently united to France. Strasburg is
the birthplace of Marshal Kellerman, Gen.
Klicber, and of Pierro Scboeffer. The for
tified city is of triangular form, inclosed by
bastioncd ramparts, strengthened bv nume
rous outworks nnd entered by seven gates.
At its" eastern 'extremity is a strong pent i
gonal citadel, built by Vauban, nnd, by
means of sluices, tbe adtacent country mav
be laid under water. Outside of the waifs
nresever.al suburbs, n large artillery ground,
a hippodrome, numerous gardens and pla
ces of public resort. The vas'. cathedral,
founded A. D. S04, and Jhochoir built .bj
Charlemagne, is cbteSy n modern edifice,
begun in the tenth, but not finished till the
nineteenth century, with n spire 466 feet
in height. The buildine has a remarks-
bio astronomical clock. Tbere are, also,
many otner important public buildings.
Strasburg is a Bishop's See, tbe seat of a
chamber of commerce, societies of agricul
ture nnd arts, faculties of law, medicine,
pharmacy, ic. It has a very extensive
transit trndo by its connections with Ger
many, Switzerland, North Italy, and all
west of continental Europe. Its manufac
tures are in great variety. A railroad to
Paris has been completed. Steamers ply
between Strasburg and Basle, Rotterdam
nnd London. It is now tbe capital of the
Dcpirtment of tbe Bas Rhine, as it formerly
was of tbe Ueparttnent or Alsace. It is on
the west bank of the III, near the left bank
of the Rhine, to which its glacis extends,
and across which its communicates with
Kcbl (in Baden) bv a bridge of boats. Pop

While the war is progressing in Europe,
the attention of every one is drawn to the
geography of tbe locality of present opera
tions. Maps of tbe region are eiven in
many journals, and particular towns arc
often mentioned. But confusion in regard
to these is quite likely to arise, from the
fart that the same place is often mentioned
under a aiiferent name, or, more frequent
ly, a different orthography English. Ger
man, or French, according as tbe map of
information has been drawn from one or
the other of tbese sources. Take an exam
plo or two: Cologne (English), Colon
(French), Koln or i olon (German); Mentx
(English), Mayence f French), Mainz (Ger
man). So also with rgard to Coblcnx,
rrantiort, ana many otners.
Then, too, perplexity may arise from an
other source. Tbere is often more than
one town of the same name, distinguishable
usually by a so Six or descriptive phrase.
but this suffix is sometimes omitted. Thus
in France are Chalons-sur Marne, (Cha
lons upon tha rirer Marne), Chalons-sur-Loire,
and others. The first of these is
nearest the scene of aotivo operatioua, and
now usually referred to. Tbis mode of dis
tinguishing places of the same name is
common in Europe. Tbus, in England, we
have -Sew-cajlle-upon-Xyne, etc.
There are several places commencinc
with Sanr, spoken of, Soarbruck Saarburg,
Soar Louis, etc. Tbese are so called from
being on tbe river Saar. Tbe final syllable
of these and many other German towns bas
an etymological signification, a knowledge
of which often aids to a better understand
ing of tha situation of the place, or tbe rea
son of its original designation. Tbus,
bruck means bridge; burg, a castle, or for
tified town; Saar Louis was founded by
Louis XIV; brunn, or broun, means a well
or fountain; baeb, a brook or rivlet; berg,
a hill or mountain.
"Tbe phrase in Napoleon's dispatch to tho
Empress about their son, which was ren
dered in English, "Tbe soldiers wept at bis
tranquillity," appears thus in tbe original :
"Son calm a profondtmenl emu he taU

A New Wat to Drt Peaches. Dr. Jo

new directions for pearing pacbes for dry

time for the eppronching season :
"Never pare peaches to dry. Let them
get mellow enough to be in cood eatinc
condition, put them in boilins water for a
moment or two, and the skins will come off

is to throw your dogs and cats into a decoc

cheerful subject of snake bites, which
came off on the Avenue yesterday, a med

Toe Rural world says: "If yon desire
delicious, fresh grapes in winter, or even
up to the next spring, tbey can be had by a
very little care and expense, l'tck tbe
bunches only on a dry, warm day, and place
tbem in a cool, shady place for at least three
days; then commence to pack tbem in paper
boxes tbat will bold about ten pounds.
Between each layer of grapes place a single
thi.'kness of newspaper; the boxes should
not contain more than three layers in thick

not in a cellar, for tbe natural dampness

cheaper method of preparing corn to be
used in winter in a fresh state, than that of
canning it: Wben the corn is past tbe
tenaerest roasting-ear state, pull it; take
off one thickness of the husk down at the
silk end in a close and tight manner; place
them in a elean cask or barrel compactly
toeether. and not on a brine to cover tbe

eyed the Northerner with no little interest.

"Did anything pass you after taking it?"
