JONES. The Sons of Ham.
But tliouffli the iio";ro is an African,
all Airicaim aio not iicgi'ous. Tlicro are
the same varieties to bo obscrvetl in
Ham as in those of Slicni anil Japhctb.
All nre distinctly African; but the rc
troatiiir forebcad, prominent jaws, and
ill-formed body by which the negro is
generally credited, are not common. It
is only tne Maiiyemv, of whom we have
lately beard from Dr. Livingstone, who
are beautilul 111 torni and leature; tor 1
have met with their counterparts iu
regions less unknown. Iu South Afri
ca there is a leuiarkable illustration of
the iibvsieal and mental differences
which may exist iu tribes that are al
most contiguous. The Rojesinen are
dwarfed 111 body, and stunted 111 mind,
'l beir language in its utterance seems to
be not lar removed lrom the unitelhgi
blegibberitigs of the npe. Their habits
are those ol wild beasts rather than of
human beings. They occupy about the
lowest position in the scale of humani
ty. Yet we look in vain for liner spec
imens of the gents homo and tho Zulu
Kafirs. They are tall in stature, manly
in bearing, and graceful in movement.
'1 heir language is pleasant to the ear
and callable of expressing almost any
thought the human mind is capable of
conceiving. Ihey are logical 111 reason
ing, patient in argument, and acute in
observation. Ihey are war like, tortney
are pastoral 111 their pursuits, and, since
the davsof the Uyksos, the old shep
herd kings who Mere the terror of
Eevpt, tho lovers of floc ks and herd
have been fond of righting. When their
blood is 1111. their iintrer races uncheck
ed by the tender regard of the claims of
uitv: out thev tlo not urooci over ineir
wrontrs. and thev readily forget and
foririve. "Thev fouirht us like men, and
diirintr a truce they behaved themselves
like gentlemen," was said by a friend of
mine, who bad been engaued 111 a war
against them. In times of peace they are
courteous to strangers, liberal 111 hosin
tality, and to the trust reposed in them
they respond with an Arab-like liuciuy.
When once the host lias kissed tho hand
of his guest, there needs neither guards
nor weapons, tor his lilo ana properly
are perfectly secure. It is quite true
that they in common with, all Africans
are black, or nearly so; yet you cannot
be with them, or w ith other of the high
er races of Africa, long without feeling
that the affinity between them and tho
fair-skmned man is pencci in every
material Doiut: and the sympathies of
cointnnii nature soon bridtre over tho
chasm w hich at first seems to exsist bo
twern ourselves and them on account
of the difference of color.
The Corn Hill Magazine.
A Gallowstone ladv recently request
ed her husband to go to tho dress-maker
and inform her that she (bis wife) had
changed her mind, and would have the
watered silk made up instead of the
poplin, and that if "she thinks
would look better with bias flounces
without puffing, and box plated beyond
the equator, which should bo gathered

A Cai.ipounia WoNDF.rt. The San
Francisco Jlulletin any", that an import
ant clinngo has taken place recently in 1
the Geysers. Obi residents say that,
there is now a greater display of bent
steam, and Plutonic fury in them at
present, than has been known since 18
41). I have been there twice before, but
never saw such general activity as a
present. Whether this is the result
of increased demand for fire in the re
gion where the antipodes of happiness
and comfort are supposed to reign I
cannot say. A real geyser is now shot
up from the Witches Cauldron to a
height of about forty-two feet above the
surface. It would rise much higher but
that tho overhanging banks of decom
posed rocks against which it shoots up
prevent it. A portion of this bank is to
bo removed, and as this is to be a work
of some danger, owing to the steam from
the terrific heat of tbe black water in
the cauldron (its temperature is 202 de
grees Fahreheit that is 80 degrees
above the boiling point) it is proposed
for a short time to turn the cold stream
which flows down the Cievser canvon
into the cauldron, with the hope that its
terrific heat may be sufficiently mitiga

of rocks mentioned. The largo sti earn

slits the ear when close to a locomotive

A Practical Test.
A Danbury man named Reubens re
cently saw u statement that counting
one Hundred when tempted to speak
an angry word would save a man a
great deal of trouble, lhis statement
sounded a little singular at first, but the
more lie read it over the more favorably
he became impressed with it and final
ly concluded to adopt it. Next door
to Reubens lives a man who has made
five distinct attempts in the past fort
night to secure a dinner of green peas
by the first of July, and every time he
has been retarded by Reubin's hens.
Tho next morning after' Reu Lens made
bis resolution this man found his fifth at
tempt to have miscarried. 1 hen he call
ed Reubens, lie said;
"What in thunder do you mean by
letting your hens tear up my garden?''
Reubens was tempted to call him a
mud-shoot, a new name just coming in
to general use, but he remembered his
resolution, put down his boiling rage,
and meekly observed:
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
Then the mad neighbor, who had been
eying this answer with a great deal of
suspicion broke, in again:
"Why don't you answer my question,
Rut still Reubens maintained his equa
nimity, and went on with the test.
"Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen,
fourteen, fifteen, sixteen "
The mad neighbor stared harder than
"Seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twen
ty, twenty-one "
"You are a mean skunk," said the
mad neighbor, backing towards the
Reubens' face flushed at the charge,
but he only said:
"Twenty-two, thenty-three, twenty
four, twenty-five, twenty-six "
At this point the neighbor got up on
the teuce 111 some haste, but suddenly
tliinkintr of his peas, he opened his

cents 1 could knock your cracked head
over a barn, and would "

rupted Reubens, "twenty-nine, thirty,
thny-one, thirty-two, thirty-three "
Here the neitnioor broke lor tne house
and enterinsr it, violently slammed the
door, behind him; but Reubens dared
not let up on the enumeration, and so
stood out there alone in his own yard
and kept on counting, while his burning
cheeks and flashing eyes eloquently
aniriiied his judgment. hen ho got
into the eighties his wuo came to the
door in some alarm.
Why, Reubens, man, what is tho
matter, with youi" she said. "Do

Rut he didn't let up. She came out
to him, and clung trembling to him, but
he only looked into her eyes and said:
"Ninety-three, liiuety-iour, lunty-nve,
ninety-six, neinety-seven, ninety-eiglit,

of manufacturing false teeth is very
crude. The plates are made of wood,
and the teeth consist of tacks driven up
from the under side. A piece of wax is
heated and pressed into the roof of he
mouth. It is then taken out and har
dened by putting it into cold water.
Another piece of heated wax is applied
to the impression, and after being
pressed into shape, is hardened. A
piece of wood is thenroughly cut into
the desired form, and the model, having
been smeared with red paint, it is ap
plied to it. Where they touch each
other, a mark is left by the paint. This
is cut away till they touch evenly all

Uncle Daniel Drew's opinion of Jay
Uncle Daniel Drew, the survivor of
more Wall street mortality than any oth
er man living, thus gives his testimony
about his young friend Jay Gould: "Xow
Jay's a kind o' sharp boy. He's been to
the synagogue, and they gets their eye
teeth cut there afore they's out uv their
bibs and tuckers. Yes he's sharp, but
he's a rvs'iiu things a lejtle to fast, lie
can't buck agin the whole street; he
ought to know he couldn't do anything
o' the sort. There's been chaps as smart
us Jay what's tried it, and tliey got
scooped all in a heap like. They'll ketch
Jay all on a turn one of these fine moru
in's, and away he'll go like a kite. Mind
my word, boys! I've saw lots of boys
busted, and there is going to be some
more uv 'em busted right soou. Maik
me, if there ain't."

The Washinton Star has the following:
"On Friday afternoon, before leaving
for Long Lranch, the President took a
s. roll along II steeet and dropped iu to
see a friend who is a well known citizen
of Washington. Duiinghis stay the
daughter of the gentleman referred to

pleasant thing about him. Tho Presi
dent inquired to what she referred. ' 1
have been told by an officer who served
with you in the army,' said she, 'that he

circumstances, and that in no tingle in

Destruction of Terrapin Tower.
The Niagara Falls Gazette thus
notices the destruction of "Terrapin
Tower" long one of llio most conspicu
ous objects around the falls: During the
past fitly years millions ot people from
exet y iithsibilable part of the glube have
seen the round, weather-beaten lower,
built upon tho narrow ledge of rocks
upon the extreme bank of the Horse
shoe Fall, and have enjoyed from its
summit the m.'iguirieeut view which it al
lot del of the 'umuliuous rapids above
11 11. 1 the mighty rush of waters below.
Thev will learn with sincere regret that
the venerable mass of masonry has been
lestroyed. The lower was built in 1323,
by Judge Porter, was 43 feet iu height
and 12 feet iu diameter ut its base. The
masonry was massive and its hardness
aud durability many have thought lo
have been ubiindauily demonstrated.
But standing in such an extremely ex
posed position, subject at all limes to
the action ot the spray and the fierce,
healing winds, aud in the winter months
ice-bound and frost-bitten, the wood and
stone have been gradually yielding to tl e
elements, and the structure was pro
nounced unsafe last fall, and has been
closed to the publio ever since. Last
week preparations were made lo rennve
the concern, in order to make room for a
new iron tower. Largo fissures were
found to have opened in the masonry
aud iho mast in 1 lie center ot the pile
was found to be only a shell, the core
having almost disappeared from a dry
rot. The first attempt to blow up the
tower was made Saturday noon, bill
proved abor'ive, the twenty-five pounds

An Interesting Discovery.
The Important urci-e in Archaeo
logical resenreh in Paltstinp, Jerusalem '
the Island of Cypress and the ruins ot
Nineveh, have been recently supplement
ed by the discovery in Brstil of a stone
or slab on which U engraved in unmis
takably Phoenician characters, an so
cour t cf a t Nil made to that country
filher in tho linmof Ilir.im, Kinif of
Tyre, the fricrd and ally of Solomon the
great King 1 f Isrnet, or in the time ot a
later mor-arch of that name, who lived
between five and tx centuries before
tho Christian era, The inscription sets
forth, as at present deciphered, and that
a number of "Csna-ite," as they
term theinxt-lvi., tnnlw and female, em
barked in their veaaaels at Azion Giber,
a Port on of the Red Sen, and sailed for
twelve months along the coast of
Africa. Whether tly were refugees
or banished persona, or explorers in
(arch of new countri-, it would seem
that they must have doubled the Cape
of Good Hope, and thence sailing north
ward they were probably driven by
winds into the equitorial current and
drifting with that same at length to
the shores ot Brazil without (as sugges
ted by the learned Renor, Lodisian Net
lo, pirector of the Rio, museum, who
made the rough translation) being a war-
that they had paaed an '"'ean or landed
upon a new continent. Tim stouo or a
facismil r.f if, is to be sent to the great
linguist of Europe, nnd it U probablu
that w hen the ineription is fuly deci
phered it may prove a key to unlock
the mjttery of the ancient settlement of
the American rontitient, and the origin
aud hisioty of the vast ruins of ancient
cities which are the wonders of Central
America, and of which no record ha
hitherto been obtainable.
We have long been of the opinion
that this great continent was known .
to the hisluiio nations of remote antiqui
ty and that voyages were made to and
lrom the ports of Phoenicia, and per
haps to those of other inaritino people.
We know that the Phoenicians were ex
tremely jealous of their commerce and
knowledge ot navigation, and would not
communicate it, so guarded were they to
the localities they visited that an an
cient writer afilrius the captain ot a
Phoenician vessel finding ho was follow
ed by a Roman galley, evideatiy with a
view of discovering the port to which
Le was bound, ran his vessel upon tbe
rock, sooner than show the way to his
pursuers and that on his return he was
rewarded by his countrymen as having
performed an act ot patriotism and pub
lic service. These Phoenicians thought
ncthing of passing the Pillars of Hercules
as ihey termed the straits of Gibraltar,
and being once upon the ocean it is pre
sumed that they pushed westward as
well as sniiihwaid mid the recently dis
covered tablet may be merely the record
ot an ordinary voyage safely acomplish
ed, not to an unknown but the kuowu
aud previously visited country. The
minds ot ancient geographers and his
torians were full of "terra incognita" or
unknown land, which is either conjured
up the fabled Atlantis, or else such an
Island existed and was lost sight of in
the darkness of the ages which followed,
and thus the story ot its sudden disap
pearance in anight gained credence and
bec.itns a wondi r to be related by the sto-ry-iellcrs
of Athens or the superslicious
scribes of Italy and Asia. Au early ge
ographer of Alexandria in Egypt two
hundred years before Christ conjectured
that there existed continents and Islands
which could be reached by sailing west
ward. Strabo and Ptolemy tavor tho
same idea; the Northmen it is now known
discovered it and voyaged hiiherward,
and it was centuries, betore their discov
eries became known to the rest of Eu
rope. Columbus did not in our opinion,
sail upon a theory, but was cognizant
of facts which have riot come into the
possession ot his biographers, wjilcn
brought him to the shores 01 What
was lo the then existing nation a "new
world," but had been known 10 at least
some ot the nations 01 1110 eartn two
thousand years before.
We are vet without information to
the exact locality and circumstance ot
the finding of this valuable contribution
to American aniiquite. The director
of the Rio Museum has no doubt of its
ulhenticii y and the learned aud sci
entific world will look with deep inter
est tor a full exposition of its meaning,
which may open the pool and indicatti
the origin of the pre-historie nations,
who built aud occupied the cities as well
as those mourn! builders whose traces are
scattered throughout the great west and
the .Mississippi valley.
