The Old Canoe.
Ing before the war the aiinded simple hul charm.
Ing verses appeared In a short-lived paper at Little
Rock, Ark., wlthont signature or address. As they
have a tone and sentiment in keeping wilh I be last of
the sum met snosiths. their present revival Is at least
seasonable! and It la possible Ihst their restoration in
current print may slielt some tardy sign from ths un
known bard who need never have felt ashamed to own
himself the singer. PiUtburgh VhrmtcU.
Where the rocks are gray Slid the shors Is steep,
And the waters below look dark and deep,
Where the rugged pine In its lonely pride, ,
Leans glooiuf ly over the murky tide ;
Where the reeds and rushes are long and rank,
And the weeda grow thick on the winding bei k .
Where the ehsuow Is hesry all the dny through,
j ucib una ai us moorings mi oiu canoe.
Ths useless paddles are Idly dropped,
i.ise a sea oira e wing tnat ire storm use lop ea,
And crossed on the rslllng, one o'er oiis.
Use the folded bsnds when the work la done)
While hnsllv hei-lt and forth hetwsen
The spider stretches his silvery screen.
And the solemn owl, wtth Its dill! "inohoo,"
Settles down on tbe sides of IJhe oldcauoe.
The stern half sunk In the slimy wars,
Hots slowly sway in Ma livlujg grave,
And the green moss creens o'er the tomb flower,
Or the ivy that mantles a falling tower ;
While msny a blossom of loveliest hue,
Springs up o'er ths sisrn of tbe old canoe.
The currentless waters are dead and still-
But tbe light wind plays wilh the boat al will,
And Isslly In and out again -It
float,, the length of the rusted chain :
Like the wears march ef the hands of time.
That meet and iiart at the noontide chime.
Ana tne nore is Kiesea at eacn turning anew
By the dripping how of the old canoe.
Oh. many A time, wtth S careluss hand.
I,have pushed it away rrom tne peiiniy strand.
And paddled It down where tbe stream ran nnick,
Where the whirls are wild and Hie eddies thick, -,
And laughed as 1 leaned o'er the ris-.king side, r, , t
And looked below oa tbe broken tide, ; , : i
To tee that the faces and boats were two
That were mirrored back from the old canoe.
But now, as 1 lean o'er the crumbling side,
And look below on the sluggish tide,
Tbe face that I see there Is graver grown.
And the Isugh that I beard had a soberer tone t
And the hands that lent to the light skiff wings.
Has grown familiar with sternet things.
But I love to think of the hours that sped ' '
As I rocki-d where the whirls their while spray shed,
Ere the blossom waved or the green grass grew
O'er the mouldering stern of the old canoe.
How Yale "Scientists" Killed a Grizzly
, A. letter from the .Marsh expetlition
puplislit'a in tne xevtert JSews ot ohh
Lnke City gives rii account of the fight
the Yale boys bad with a grizzly:
Early dawn was just rendering things
material indistinctly visible on the morn
ing of hat ui dnv, August 28, as the little
hunting party were started from their
warm rolls of blankets, as they slept, In
dian fashion, with their feet towards the
fire, by the rapid shooting, sounding
from the direction (Jlieuing and JJewing
had taken earlier iu the morning to stalk
deer near the Little Mountain Lake, tSam
Smith, the guide, was the first to wake
up to the situation. lie remarked in a
cool, mountain style "The boys must
have corralled the herd of elk; let us go
and see the fun." With feverish basic
the party rallied forth to the scene of act
ion, some with one shoe on, some with
none, batless and coatless, but all ore
pared for a general massacre, when sud
denly Cheney appeared recklessly smash
iiiK throuuh the bushes, waving a oistol
in one hand and the double-barrelled
shot-gun, which was to have killed the
deer in the close under-wood, iu the
other. He told us, in broken accents, as
soon a" hi wind Would let him, that in
going through a dense willow thicket
they hud unexpectedly come right on
an immense grizzly, eating wild berries,
and that on the impulse of the moment
he had given it one load of buck-shot
ritflit in the nose, and Dewing a rillc bul
let in the hi'. The bear, with a terrible
growl, went for them. The place being
very miry, tney Kepi ineir oisiance, ior
how long they did not know, for on
looking round .four or five minutes be
fore seeing us, neither Dewing nor the
bear Was in sitrht, and we had intercept
ed him in looking for them. With many
misgivings and much more caution the
part v ' continued the hunt, but under
Sam's directions spread out like scouts,
sois to cover the whole willow thicket
from the edge of the lake to thn pine for
est beyond. After a short march hi this
fashion a "hallo! there he is," tame from
Huntington; aud there, sure enough, in
a small Cottonwood tree, was Dowing.
being rocked to and fro as if several hur
ricanes were after him at once, and at
the same time, with futile zeal attempt
ing to aim his' revolver at the bear, hid
den from us in the bushes below. Hunt
ington advanced rapidly to a little glade,
where a fair shot at the bear couJd ho
hail, and going down on ono knee took
a good aud deliberate aim, aud tiring,
hit it iu the shoulder. '1 he bear let go
the tree, which was most fortunate, as
Dewing, exhausted, must have fallen in
another moment, slopped an instant, and
seeing Huntington, whom he had already
smelt, the wind being favorable, rushed
towards him. -.Huntington, with perfect
coolness, fired again, but without effect,
aud seeiug the danger ol waiting any
longer, ran to the lake margin, where
there were no bushes. But the bear gain
ed rapidly on him, and when he reached
the open ground to the horror of all tho
bear was only a few , feet behind, and
seemed about to, strike and tear, him at
i I l i v l ,
uvery; BU-pi J ( I . ' . .' ,
At that moment Av ai ring, hidden in
the bushes, fired three times wilh his
Winchester, tbe third shot taking effect.
The bear tumbled, and Huntingdon
lumped into the lake up to his neck.
llie bear rising, one eye imuuuu oy
Cheney's shot, and the other with rage,
did not see him. Meantime, Wicks, who
had remained behiud to saddle hid horse,
so as to ride him into the supposed elks,
herd, coming at full gallop through the
bushes, rode within twenty or thirty feet
of the grizzly, when his horse seeing it,
stopped with a jerk, trembling all over.
Wicks fired, apparently with effect, and
had just drawn auother ' bead when the
bear, making a rush towards hiin, tbe
horse reared ; and threw up his head,
knocking the gun out of Wick's hand,
and then gave three fearful bucks. . iiut
Wicks, though thrown clear off the sad
dle on the horse's back, kept on until
late that night. Oakes, Kinney and Sain
were now all within fifty, feet of the
grizzly, which seemed dazed, aud stood
lookiug with an uucertaiu ir towards
them. Oakes having the least under
wood between hiniseli and the bear, aud
having therefore the best shot, took a
good aim and fired. The grimly stag
gered forward aud fell into a clump ol
bushes in the morass. "Dead, by than
derl" ' yelled ' fciani, who with Kinney
rushed . forward to . give him a sort of
cotf l grace. -;; But when within abont,
ton feet -erf 4b grisslfi their oowwS was
suddenly stopped. For the besr raised
himself up, reeled a moment and then
went for them. Kinney had just thrown
up his gun to fire when, stepping in a
mire hole he fell. Snm immediately
seized . his hand to help him out but

The Lessons of the Mosquito.
September, whether it be the month
of financial crashes, or preparations for
political strife, of social disorder, or of
religious awakening, can never come
round without bringing serious and
painful reflections to a very large pro
portion of our citizens. This subject or
reflection is one that cannot be avoided
even by the most thoughtless. Boys
and girls in the hey-day and bloom of
their youth are known to think deeply
about it. Men advanced in life, weigh
ed down with the teeming cares of busi
ness, can yet take time to ponder on it.
Even such nn unreflective person as the
Democratic politician has been known
to lie awake at night discussing this
subject with thoroughly Democratic
earnestness and vigor. The mention of
the last individual warns us that no
mystification should, be. attempted, so
we announce tne mosquito to be our
fruitful theme; we nil know whence thev
come. Their properties are well under
stood, and nothing can prove their im
portance better than the. pains taken for
their reception. We do not indeei1, like
our brethren in the farther north, eive
them the oleaginous pleasure of alight
ing on bodies adorned by coats of
crease. . Nor do wo usual! v build great
fires for their reception, like oilr coun
trymen in the West. We do, however,
show them great consideration in the
elaborate erection of bars, and Mie ex
pensive construction of nets, through
the interstices if which the 'mosqniro
gaily admits itself, and makes its pres
ence felt by cheerful sounds and delicate
lhese peculiarities ot the friendly
mosquito are, however, too well known
and appreciated to call for much consid
eration here. Its eminence as a musician
is beyond cavil. The service it performs
in letting blood, particularly that of the
newly arrived immigrant, who but for
this and kindred reasons might become
unbearably arrogant, is ungrudgingly
admitted. It is in a social and political
aspect that the mosquito gives the most
food for reflection. Eminent naturalists,
quoted with care in the most trust
worthy encyclopedia, declare that in
point of importance the female mosqui
to is infinitely superior to the male. We
learn, indeed, that the males are but
poor things, content, in the simple lan
guage of the naturalist, "with pleasant,
antenna-, not to annoy ns with their
bites, but simply flit from flower to flow
er, sipping the dew and sweet juices,
requiring but little, if any, food, propa
gating their speceis, and seon after dy
ing." - Hero is a picture for discontent
ed woman to ponder over. Here she
finds the natural enemies of her sex,
though only in the world of mosqui
toes, reduced to their proper level, per
haps innocently priding themselves on
their plumed antenna, indulging in sim
ple pastoral pleasures, never vexing
their better halves on the subject of
food, but doing the only duty they seem
to have come into the world for, and
dying. This is as it should be. What,
on the contrary, are the functions of the
female mosquito? She does not Hit
from flower to flower, sipping dew and
juices. She scorns such mean pastimes.
iUany-leggeu and veiioui-tougued, she
pluiiLrcs into the very haunts of men.
ihe busy hum of populous cities is mu
sic iu ucr ears. one darts lroni House
to house, devouring the lite-blood of the
infant with the same dexterity aud
heartlessness she does that of its par
ents; raising unsightly protuberances on
the cheek ot beauty, or makiug ugliness
more ugly, and doing all with a keen
enjoyment but feebly expressed in her
triumphant, if - rather monotonous,
music. The whole life ol the female
mosquito is oue of battle aud danger, of
struggle and privation. The world is
in arms against her. Her sting is against
every man, and every man s hand is
against her. When the end comes, af
ter a night passed "w the enjovmeiit of
human gore, and she is crushed betweeu
tbe palms of some monster, her death is
a triumph, for the monster finds his
hands stained with his own blood, upon
which the ieiuale mosquito has been fat
tening. ' ' ; . .
This reversal of the functions of the
sexes ought not to be without its whole
some lesson. We commend it to Alias
Susun B. Anthony uud her frieuds. Let
them read up the subject with t:aie. Let
theiu discover when aud how th revo
lution which must have jcpurrvd iu the
mostiuito world took place what causes
led to it,: what tyrannic and barbarities
on tbe part of the males caused the up
risusy of 4b females and their ultiaarato
triumph. When this has been learned,
let Mrs. Anthony and her followers iro
and do likewise, , They have a grand
field for their investigation and a still
Grander field for the display of the
now ledge thus acquired. They or their1
disciples will, doubtless, some day turn
it to profitable service; and the world
may yet see its males as harmless, as in
nocent and as short-lived as the males
of the mosquito world, and its women
as fearless, as pugnacious, and as de
structive as the female port inn of the
interesting but agonizing subject of
these reflections. X. Y. Timtn.
Fish For Food.
By chemical analysis it is found that
fish contains a greater proportion of
phosphorus than any other class of ani
mal food, and therelore mil! be consid
ered the richest "brain food." Inland
auiuiiils the phosphorus is contained for
the most part in the bones, iu combina
tion with lime, us a phosphate, wl ilc the
muscle is rich in iibriu, etc. Hut, on
the other hand, the various genera of
fish, altln ttj;h not abounding, in fibrin,
are much richer iu phosphorus; ami this
clement, as a general rule, varies aceerd-
ugly as the hsri is lively or slow in its
motciiieuls nod habits. Upon this dif
ference depends, in a great measure, the
relative value of different kinds; Those
containing the greatest proportion of
phosphorus, mid consequently those of
the most rapid movement, commanding
the greatest prices. Thus the salmon, a
fish of remarkable agility in its move
ments, and its nearest relative, the trout,
are among the most expensive of the
varieties in our market, while the less
active kinds command but interior
prices. But an exception to this rule,
due only to ignorance or prejudice, is ex
emplified in the New Luglaud farmers
of the last century, who were often
bound by legal obligations not to feed
their apprentices more than three meals
a week upon salmon, as it was plenty,
and therefore, fit only for those who
were too poor to obt iin anything else.
1 lie same wo thy larmers are wont to
consider oysters a mere luxury for the
epicure, and they were generally associ
ated with champagne, late suppers and
high living generally. lint m our sea
port towns they are undoubtedly among
the cheapest, and bv no means the least
nutritious articles of diet, although we
have recently seen it asserted that they
commit no nutriment. e nave also
seen philosophers who contended that
cheese was only a luxury, and contained
none of the elements of nutrition, being
ignorant of the chemical fact that the
casein of the cheese and the fibrin of
meats are almo.st the same, and are both
resolved by constructive assimilation in
Those nations who eat fish with one
meal each day are undoubtedly the most
active in intellect, and the most capable
of brain labor without exhaustion or fa-
titrue. Even those savaue tribes who
subsist in a great measure upon fish, no
doubt possess very active, quick minds,
although they are uncultivated and ig
norant; and other causes may also tend
to keep them in a deplorable aud de
graded condition. but when once civ
ilized and Christianized, these tribes ot
icfi yvpliaji become quick and active
in intellect, even to put to shame the
more stolid beef eaters ol our inland
towns of Christian lands. Not only is
such pho6phutic food conducive to the
activity or the brain, but it promotes
fecundity and increases the ability to
endure cold, fatigue, etc.; and while
the facilities for obtaining it are con
stantly increasing, it would be well for
the rising generation were they made to
partake ot and to realize it as second
only in many respects to the statt ot
lile; aud the husband and lather who
occasionally takes half a day from his
legitimate business to nil his basket
with delicious tish, should not be con
sidered as a mere "sportsman," but a
"good provider" for bis family of those
things which are of vital utility. We
would advise every one of our country
friends who have streams or ponds upon
their premises to stock them with some
kind of fish most suitable to them, and
those who have the facilities for making
artificial streams or basins to do so anil
pursue the same course, that they i ed
no longer be dependent upon distant
fish markets and on fish whicli have beeu
pickled, smoked or dried, when it is de
sirable to employ nutriment of this de
scription. V . A. Wktheiiiiek, Al. D.,
in jenthl of Ihallh.
To be tough is to be strong and able
to endure hardships. Strength is born
of struggle. Ability to endure hard
ship is Hie result of discipline in the
way of endurance. Some children are
boru uitli 'iron constitu ions', apparent
ly, or were iu our grandfathers' day
and they bore a wonderful amount of
knocking about aud deprivation of one
kind or auother. You may think they
turned out well euough iu spite of it,
but 1 don't. 1 think that many of those
foreparcuts of remarkable mention cauie
out of the hard mill iu which they were
ground, pitifully stunted and de
tormed iu more ways than one; aud
that, too, iu spite of their iron constitu
tions constitutions so used up by their
hard early life that they could not be
queath one-half their native vigor to the
sons uud daughters boru of tlietu.
Vet e believe iu toughening chil
dren, and iu discipline; but these are
consistent with . perfect teuderuess and
unceasing care. Turn them out of doors
no, never (urn them out, but let them
go, or coax them out if they have morbid
tears. But have theiu so well protected
with warm overcoats (give sleeved sacks
to girls, instead of bothersome pretenses
called shawls), oversocks or overshoes,
with leggius, mittens, and hoods, or
caps with ear-tabs that they can run,
aud coast, and skate, aud slide, and
snow-ball without any discomfort from
the north wind or the ice. ' '
! Teach children to wait upon them
selves, and take pleasure in helping oth'
era. Encourage them to bear necessary
pain mitb aa little f usa aa possible, tiive
them good tools and show an interest in
their use of them. Show thctn how to
work as .yon do; but reqnire very little
at first, letting them make things for
friends, or do their tasks to "help" "those
they love, until they learn to feel nn am
bition about doing their work fast and
thoroughly. Expect them to keep their
engagements, and not allow them to
back out of an undertaking as soon as
the flush of novelty wears off. There
fore let them not attempt too much
unless to cure a habit of bragging.
Give them long, warm night-clothes,
and bedding enough (too much will in
duce perspiration) to keep them warm in
any position; and let them sleep In cool,
ventilated rooms, and give theiu all the
natural sleep they can take.
Its Wealth, Customs and Religion.
The following leading article from the
London Daily Ttkgraph embodies some
interesting information relative to the
Ashantees, their manners and customs:
"The Ashantee nation is a great Afri
can power. It liumliers abont 3,000,000
souls of whom some 00,000 are war
riors well-made, muscular, war-loving
barbarians; their thief find upper classes
distinguished by cleanliness, handsome
attire and something like civilization, ex
cept in regard to their worse than Dahom
ey an cruelties. Every twenty-one ''ays
they hold an adai, or 'blood 'custom', at
which rum and palm wine having been
drauk like water, skulls are carried In
procession to the sound of drums made
with human skin, and most horrible mas
sacres and debaucheries go forward. At
the anuual 'Yam Festival,' just now com
ing on, they celebrate a still bloodier
carnival of death, and whenever a eabo
ceer or freeman dies, slaves are killed to
'wet his grave.' They eat the heart and
drink the blood of a 'conquered enemy,
and wear the teeth'and finger bones as
ornaments. When the King dies, thou
sands of wretched slaves and attendants
are slaughtered over his tomb; in a word,
it is a land of murder. It was meant by
nature to be a land of peace and plenty,
for beyond the thick forsts, which lie a
long the coasts, stretches a fertile and
healthy country of rich black soil, grow
ing two or three crops yearly, and fuil of
vegetable wonders and glories as yet un
named. The fruits and flowers of Ashan-tee-land
are said to be perfectly marvel
lous; it boasts an entirely new citron and
a tall tree bearing magnificent goblet
shaped blossoms, while the sugar-cane
grows wild. Curimis animals such as the
bird called 'pookoe, and the huge corpse
eating 'arompo' rat, are found in the
woods and cleariiisrs. l'cptilcs are hor
ribly plentiful, including enormous boas;
a peculiar puff-adder, whose bite is cer
tain death; scorpions as biiz as crazy-
tish, and toads so large that Jiosman took
the first he saw for a land tortoise. The
possible productions of such a region are
vast and various; but its fertility is
drowned in bloodshed, and gold is the
chief article exported. Iu that metal Ash-
antee-land must he fabulously rich; the
chiefs wear golden breast plates aud
golden or gilded war caps. the ca
boceers go about with lump of virgin
gold hung upon their necks and wrists,
some weighing, it is said, four pounds
and more; and Bowditch has described
golden window frames in the King's pal
ace at Coomassie, as well as an almost
universal use of cloths embroidered with
gold thread, aud adorned with thin
plates of the precious metal. As for Coo
massie, the capital, accounts differ; one
statement making it out a poor, strag
gling place of mean huts; and another, a
really fine and imposing city, for Africa.
Bowditch, who went there in 1817, paints
it as a remaikat!e place. He speaks of a
population of two hundred thousand
A rush of moneyed bachelors from
New York Slate is now imminent. The
State has long been noted for tho facil
ities which it offers for communicating
matrimonial alliances, ami now, it seems,
the courts have determined io put all
bachelors, witli means, at the mercy of
designing females. Hereafter a bache
lor and his money must part or he must
leave the Mate. JSo bachelor Mho pri
zes his independence should ever visit
that State without some reliable female

mortal is not sate in that State iiereattcr,
for bachelors, for even riding in a horse
car he runs the risk of having his watch
stolen by a male pickpocket or having
his person or fortune taken by some de
signing female. The girls will have it
all their own way, and bachelors must
get married or go to the poor-house or
ooth. 'A uleam of the eve" uikjii a

Miss Koxelaua Jlolman sued Alexan
der Earle of Brooklyn, for 115,000 for
breach of promise. She admitted that
he did not make .any promise whatever,
but that he frequently kissed her. With
ouly so luu h evidence the case came be
fore Judge Neilsou, who charged that
no words were necessary to constitute
the engagement. "The gleam of the
eye and the conjunction of the lips,"
said this light of jurisprudence, "are
overtures, when thev become frequent
and protracted." Tiie jury, always ea

Sagacitv if JiiRPS. A great mental '
quality which birds seem to have in ex-
cess of other animals is a very fine cal
culation of distance, and this, too, in di
rect subordination nf their own well-be !
ing. It has been shown again and again '
and Mr. Lieth Adams refers to facts in1
support of it in this essay thatas weap
ons of offense are invited many species
of birds narrow ly observe the range of -the
new bows or guns, and keep out of .
range, of ever troubling themselves to ;
go at all farther than is necessary to be ,
out ofrange. Quite recently we have .
read, though we cannot verity the ref', i
erence at present, of some birds which i
adapt themselves, within a few days, to
the increased range for the first tune,
having been previously accustomed only !
to tho fowling-piece, and kept just out-' 11
side the ::,ooo yards' range, or whatever 1
it was, retaining their composure per- '
fectly at that distance. We suppose '
the wonderful accuracy of the traveling
birds in striking the" exact point for"
which they are bound, of which Mr. J
Leith Adams gives us wonderful illus-
trations, is a still greater proof of the "
same power. Mr? Adams tells us -of

cate adaption of the power of geometri
