- -The game of billiards has long been de?

First ohaiking the ead of his nasal organ, he

She was dressed in deep mourning, with a
double, black crape veil flowing, nearly to har
feet, Bhe moved- nervously towards the rear
parlor, where the remains were lying. There
were but five or six persons in the room.
Throwing aside her veil, she stood for nearly
ten minute?, placed her hand upon hi a head,
and followed the arm down to the hand, whloh
abe grasped for a few minutes. Then she
gllded;toward the foo t ol the coffin and plucked
one or two flowers from the cross which lay
upon the dead man's feet. She thea moved
rapidly, to tho front parlor, where she was
seated until the coffin left the house."
-Barnum's museums seem fated to be
destroyed by lire. Four times within the last
twenty-one years they have been reduced to
ashes and ruins. These four occasions lo.
dude the destruction In 1851 of the museum at
the southeast somer of Seventh and Cbesnut,
In r Philadelphia, founded by Barnum, but
which, we believe, had passed Into other
ownership before that fire, since then, and
within the last seven years, tbree others have
been burned down in New York, beginning
with the famous establishment on the corner,
of Broadway and Ann street, where the New j '
York Herald office and Park Baak now stand;
the next was on Broadway,. near Prince
street; and tho lourth ls that of Christmas
morning. The loss in eaoh Instance has been
heavy, bot bis motto as to fires ls "Hesurgam,"
and he might with great propriety adopt the
"phoenix" as hia crest. His misfortunes b;

considerable spice of humbug, which he
frankly confesses, he has nevertheless fur?

wholesome amusement and Interesting in
-A French physician, In a receot essay on.
chloral hydrate, states that it caa be employ?
ed in all cases ol sleeplessness without lever;
that for the relief of severe pain opiates
matt be used ia connection with the chloral,
Md that ratall doses a ttould be prescribed In
oases of serious troubles of the heart and cir*
enlato ry ayate m. The beet dose for an adult,
it ls stated, ls from thirty to forty-five grains,
and Boluilons should not be given stronger
than twenty parts to the hundred. The
English "Jdhrn?ls report the-case of an
overdose of chloral hydrate, taken to
produce sleep and overcoming the
effects of excessive drinking. On the
post-mortem examination the coat of
the stomach was highly congested, in conse?
quence of the deceased having taken two
doses ot one hundred grains each, the usual
quantity administered being twenty to thirty
grains, and In extreme eases forty grains. It
may be stated that besides Its quasi intoxica?
ting properties, the continued use ot chloral
produces great debility, and the eyes partlow
ly are affected, the organs becoming blood?
shot and a swimming or imperieot vision
being produced. These acknowledged effects
of chloral have caused its discontinuance as a
remedy to a great extent, bromide of calcium
and bromide of sodium being HOW used as
mild but effective sedatives. Bromide of po?
tassium, onoe so much prescribed, ls consider?
ed as inert.

General Sherman would like to have
more States to ravage and more Columbias
to burn. Upon "Forefathers' Day" be
made a speech in New York, a war speech,
in which be bade hts applauding hearers
remember that "we have conntries on the
"North and South which may complicate
"ns with their governments," so that "we
"should keep np within us that knowledge
"of military affairs which will enable us to
"?ope with any nation which may come in
"contact with us." And fae kindly ex?
plained bis Ideas of bayonet rule by saying:
"Give ns the power to lay our bands np on
"tbe yoong tuen we see here io your streets,
"and in a few days we can make an army
"equal to any Prussia ever had." There is
ia these words of General Sherman an un- j
mistakable wami og that the military Biog
desire a war, and will have it if they can,
and that they propose to raise their armies
by impressment, the severest form of arbi?
trary conscription. There ls no nobler
game io the Sooth than the unfortunate
persons accused of violating the Enforce?
ment Act, and hunting them down, with
occasional raids upon State legislatures,
does not satisfy the cravings of the hero
of "the march to the sea." It would gratify
him to sweep through Canada or Mexico,
for the good of the people-nay, for all their

In Arkansas the Liberal and Democratic
lcket was elected by a beavy majority.
Senator Bice, himself a Republican, laid the
acts before the United States Senate, and
i8ked for a committee of investigation,
[his was refused. Clayton, the Radical
iepubllcan, has cut-and-dried bis Legisla?
te, and the President bas already Bent
roops into the State to uphold the Clayton
Government, which is exoected to be in full
wing by the middle of January.
Of course the heavy battalions will be ir
esistible in Arkansas, as they were io
jonlBlana. The people of those States can
lo nothing. They snbmit to what they
annot avoid. But as surely as the sun
hines tho power which overturns legal

be purposes of the Radicals will be used,
rben the necessity arises, to accomplish a
imilarend in the North and West What
honghtful man can believe that, in a )se
'residential election, the vote of any one or
wo States will be allowed to turn the scale
.gainst the Administration? Their electo
al vote would be secured in the way that
he triumph o! Radicalism ls established in
joaisiana and Arkansas. At this moment
'resident Grant does not need their votes,
mt it is certain that if he did need them bis
rienda would do for bim what they now do
Dr themselves alone.
An Omin?os Rumor.
A St. Petersburg dispatch, dated D?cern?
er 23, says that the Oohs, a St. Petersburg
ewspaper, bas information that the British
fillister bas notified Prince Gortschakoii
hat, if the Russian troops penetrate the
ountries between Khiva and Afghanistan,.
?ngland will be compelled to interfere in <
apport of Afghan independence. There ls ?
robably no other foundation for the report I
han the fact that the Russians are steadily
aarching towards the frontiers of British
ndia, and that the Imperial Cabinet desire
o find ont, by Indirect means, what action
Sngland will feel inclined to take when her
ontrol over Hindost?n ls seriously threate?
A glance at the map shows that Husein,
a the past thirty years, has overrun and an?
exad a huge territory lying between her old
ou Dd ar les and the Punjaub. In 1864
?oorkistan and Au lea ta were captured; in
be next year Tashknnd, one of the largest
owns in Central Asia, shared the .same
tte. The conquered district was incorpo
a ted Into tho Russian dominions ander the 1
ame of Toorkistan. In 1866 Bokhara was 1
iken In band, and, later on, the capital of
he country fell "Into the possession of the
Lusslans without a blow being struck. Bok?
ara bas a population of two millions, and
kbokaud bas an area of 120,000 square
liles. Shiva, upon which the Czar bas de?
igns, has an area of 160,000 square miles.
The rapid advance of Bussia bas, for
ears, caused England serious uneasiness,
afghanistan alone stands as a barrier be
ween the British and the Muscovite, and as
oon as the latter are firmly seated on the
)xn?, it will be easy to find an excuse for
resh aggressions. The British have no
told upon the affections of their Mohamed an
objects, as they know, bat it is hard to see
low an effective resistance can ba made
rhea Bussia moves In earnest. England
ias no allies. Turkey cannot help her.
'be aggrandizement of Busala in Central
LBia does not disturb Germany or Austria,
ind France thinks more of ber lost pro
inces than of a war in the East Bussia
?lays her cards well And it is not certain
bat ber conquest of Central Asia will not
e more of a boon than a bane to the ,
isiatics whom she may bring nnder her

The Harrisburg Patriot ts mistaken in
supposing that both the members of the
Legislature, upon whose affidavits Senator
Patterson was arrested, upon the charge of
bribery, have eaten their words and con?
fessed his innocence. Mr. Miller is before
the public in a card, in which he says that
he told the truth and sticks to it, and will be
found la readiness to prove Patterson's
guilt when the trial comes on. The end of
the dirty work is not yet, and they who toe
the mark, ia the denunciation of corrup?
tion, deserve aod will receive the hearty
help of all good citizens.
The Best Thonguts of Charles Dickens.
The latest-publication of Messrs. E. J. Hale
? Son, of Murray elreet, New York, Is an ex?
ceedingly handsome volume of 564 pages en
entitled "A Cyclopedia of the Best Thoughts
"of Charles Dickens." In typography and
binding the volume ls a model of neat beauty,
and the reader will find himself able to say as
much for the matter as the manner of lt.
The author ls Mr. F. G. de Fontaine, the pres?
ent managing editor of the New York Tele?
gram, who, as a journalist and war corres?
pondant, made himself a host of friends la
South Carolina, where. Indeed, the present
work was conceived and written. This causes
us to look with particular Interest upon his
literary bantling, which promises to be com?
Mr. DeFontaine has arranged la alphabeti?
cal order the myriad thoughts and phrases
which linger la the memory of those who
have read Dickens's Inimitable stories. It
was not his idea that the work should be a
substitute for the novels themselves, but that
lt should serve as a freshener of the memory,
as a sauce piquante in dally Hie. What would
be pleasanter, for Instance, at this season than
the reading of the dainty things Dickens said
about Christmas-these are found together
under their proper bead. And so with his
description of|Plckwicks, the Chnzzlewlis, the
Little Nells, the Mlcawbers, and the rest of
the army of men and women te whom Dickens
gave life-like reality, and whom bis genius has j
made familiar, In English mouths, as house
hold words. Mr. DeFontalne proposed to
himself a difficult and laborious task, and lt is
gratifying to knew that his success ls spoken I
ol most kladiy and warmly by Edmuod Yates, I
O. W. Holmes, Tennyson, and Charles Dick
ens, Jr. The first edition of two thousand
was exhausted within a week, and "The Bes?
Thoughts of Charles Dickens" ls likely to be
come a standard work. Mr. Fogartle, of King
street, has the book for Bale, and we cordially
commend lt to our readers. ;
