It may seem queer to some that
o should pen iu article with th's
title in other words tlmt we a:o
cceentrio in thus dealing with other
people's pccu''nritics. However,
tlmt shall not deter us fiom sujlng
the little we lmve to Bay on the sub
ject. What may be icgardcd as ccccu
tiic? "Who is the Judge? What
'nrc the laws Unit jjuido him? Is ho
( assisted by a juryorhoisUiosolcnnd
Until arbiter? It will be found on
examination, that the answers to
these questions t're simple, so simple
that it is haully worth while to laiso
them. Eccentricity is that which
differ, from the majority cither in
deed, word, or thought. It is n'iko
ccccntiic to bo a genius as to bo a
pokcr-sliarp. It is as equally ccccn
.tric to believe in the native honor of
muuli-maiigucd human nature, as it
is to go about the sheets clad in
nature's own lobe, or to pcrsistent-
ly break tlmt unwiittcn code of
human society wb'ch wo " social
1 As to the Judge, ho is simply tho
llrst who pronounces the matter in
question to be eccentric by that
simple stigma it is sentenced ; and
tho jury who pronounce tho verd'et
arc those who hear and do not
" immediately dissent from the finding.
The code of laws is never definite,
it varies very much from year to
year, and is so clastic that each
person makes the laM' to suit other
people and not himself.
A century ago it was ccccntiic for
ti M-cll bred man to stiller his face to
wear the hirsute covering nature had
provided for him. To-day, it is
eccentric to speak of religious
matters iu a social company. It
was once eccentric not to wear a
wig, now, it is equally eccentric for
a man to profess a belief in tho
general honesty of mankind. Wo
could bo exceedingly personal in
pointing out the ecccutricitics of our
fellow-citizens, but wc have indi
cated enough to show that the dis
position to call a man eccentric lies
on a mistaken foundation, and, as a
rule, creates inorccronks with a lovo
of notoriety, than it destroys tho
disposition to become annoyingly
erratic to people in general.
Mr. Horace Crabbc loft yester
day at our oillco what may bo de
scribed as a freak of nature. There
is a species of banana hero, known
as the "twin banana," or main ma
hoe. Ordinari'y this produces, as
its name implies, two bunches of
bnnnnas on one main stem. Tho
specimen before us is, what would,
under ordinary circumstances, have
been ono of the twin bunches. Rut
Native lias, in this case, abundantly
blessed it by causing it to bo, instead
of one, two. So that it may be call
ed a twin of a lw n. Unfortunately
tho wind cut it down in its early
days, so that wc nro unable to form
any idea whether the mother plant
could have suppoitcd three fi 'y
developed bunches or not.
