WNHT IS A MILLION DOLLARS ?
L People say, "The steamer took
awny a million dollars," just as
complacently as though a million
,1ollaa rould be picked up like dirt.
An anonymous writer rentrks that
but few people have any more idea
what millions, billions and trillions
are than they have of the brogans
worn by the cobblers who inhabit
the moon. A million of silver dol
lars possess a vastness that is rather
stafftliug to a man who has never
faced such a pile. To count this t
sum at the rate of one thousand
five hundred dollars an hour, and
eight hours a day, would require a
man nearly three months. If the 1
`aid dollars were laid side by aide,
they would-reach one hundred and
thirty-six miles, while their tran
sportation would require fourteen
wagons carrying two tons each. If '
millions become thus overpowering
in their magnitude, what shall we
do with larger sums? The seconds
in nil thousand years seom al
most incalculable, anti yet they
amount, to less titan one-ffth i
of a trillion. A quadrillion of t
leaves of paper, each the two hun- I
dredtli part of an inch in thick- 1
ness, would form a pile, the e
height of which would be three t
luncred and thirty times the moon's E
Jistance from the earth. A cannon t
ball dies swiftly; Iut if one were I
fired at the mnoment that qae of our 1
national President. takes his seat a
in the White House, mnd were it to T
coutinue with unabated velqygity of 1
twelve hundred feet a second during e
his whole term of office, it would )
not travel three milliona of miles. C
We never hear of tMe Wandering t
Jew, but we mentally inquire what I
was the sentence of his punishment.
Perhaps he was told to walk the f
earth until he counted a trillion. C
Suppose a man to count one in 1
every second of time, day and night, t
without stopping to rest, eat or i
sleep, it would take him thirty-two e
years to count a billion, or thizty c
thousand years to count a trillion, I
even as the French understand that a
term. As we said before, what a t
limited ialea men have of the imh- t
memntity of numbers! r

A correspondent in speaking of
the absurd custom of drinking
healths, says, with a good deal of
force:
"How in the name of common
sense and reason do I show an af
fectionate regard for .my friend by
dtinking into my own stomach that
which oppresses. and distresses na
ture, and which nature does at t
watjt; or what sense is there in
drinking his health while I am des
troying my own. Drink his health!
Why the very wordas are silly upon
the Thee of themnif a ma wil but
stop to consider their meaning
llow can I poBAibly drink another
man's health? I may wish him
health, or pray for his health; but
that has no rational connection with
my drinking. I might as well dance
his health, or wrestle his health, for
any real equaectipms between the
means and the sad.
SOMETHING WORTH tADINO.

Speaker Blame, who was recently E
serenaded at Saratoga, and who
responded in a speech reviewing
the political situation, is an accom
plished speaker and a statesman of i
no ordinary ability. His remarks
at Saratoga have such a ring in

one is frightened. We give again
the comparison instituted by Mr.
Blaine, mentioned above. He said:

look at New York dwring the
same period. Its bonded debt is
increased to scnh a mammoth ex
tent that the authorities dare not
confess the actual amount. Tax
levies are all the while heaped up
beyond the imagination of honest
men, and a scale of corrupt expend
itures maintained that challenges
the credulity even of those who are
beat acquainted with the audneity
of Tammany HalL"
dtill Drusaain'.
The Boston lrasrsvi-.pd, a firm
sopporter of the administration,
gives the following opinion of the
disgraceful transactions of the New
Orleans office-holders: "The outrage
at New Orleans, whereby United
States troope were employed against
the delegates favoring' Governor
Warmoth, dwserves the prompt at
tention of the administration, and
the summary punishment of all the
federal oficials responsible for the
disgraceful transaction. Casey, PaFk
and and the rest merit immediate
suspension from their offices for so
deceiring and imposing upon (rn.
Reymxilda, then in Texas, that he
lent the military for the use of these 1
intriguers. The administration can- 1
not afford to lose its well-earned 1
fame for moderation and peace by
allowing ituelf to be compromised
by an implied or never so remote a
endorsement of this altogether un- I
justifiable act. ILet every federal !
officer at New Orleans conerned in
it be given notice to quit, and fill s
their places, not with tools of Gfov-o
arnor Warmoth, but with honest '
and discreet men. -N. Y. Ete» i ng I

Advantage of Crynag. a
A French physician is out in a
long dissertation on the advantages l
of groaning and crying in general, s
and especially during surgi. al ope
rations. Ho contends that groan- A
ing and crying are two grand ope- a
rations by which nature allays an a
guish; that those patients who give a
way to their natural feelings more s
speedily recover from accidents and 1
operations than those u ho suppose t
in unworthy a man to betray such c
symptoms of cowardjip as either to i
groan or cry. He tells of a man t
who reduced his pulse from one 6
hundred and twenty-six to sixty, a
in the course of a few hours, by it
-giving full vent to his emotions. If a
people are. at all unhappy about *
anything let them go into their a
rooms-and comfort themselves with o
a loud boo-boo, and they will feel a a
hundred per cent, better afterward. k
In accordance with thq above the h
crying of children should not be too 0
greatly discouraged. If it is eye
tematic5lly repressed the result may
be St. Vitus's dqnee, epiletic fits, or P
some other disease of the nervous
systemn.-What is natural is nearly a
always *egu; and nothing can be a
more matoral than the crying when Ii
anything occurs to give them either d
physical or mental pain.- -C/nod d
Hoalg/h. fI
Ignorant people are very apt to a
use phrases with double meanings P
without intending to do so. Among a
the advertisements we mar some- i
times read that a respectable young g
woman wants washing. The pro
prietor of a bone-mill adveitises 0
that parties sending their own bones a
to grnad will be attended toe
with y anddispatch. It was
once related in a city paper how, 0
