How Fisk Oat Illa Start.
The Chicago Evening Poat gives quite
an interesting account of Jim Fisk's
earlier career, and tells how hu got his
start, na follows:
When Fisk was about ten years of age,
he kept a emull market-stall in Benning?
ton, Vermont. Oue day, the eminent
steamboatman, Daniel Drew, came to
the market with his banket on his arm.
Ho asked young Fisk if his eggs ?rere
fresh. "You bet,'' replied the ing?nions !
boy; "pap pulled thom off the vines
this morning." "Qive me a dozen, son?
ny," replied Mr. Drew. The next stall
was kept by El i ph ale t Buckram. "Is
this pumpkin good, my son?" asked the
venerable stock-broker. "It is a good
enough Morgan," answered the truthful
obild; "but, sir, if you will examine
that portion concealed from too scruti?
nizing viow, by contact with the boards
forming tho counter of tho stall, you
will see that there is a bad spot in it."
"Does not that seem unbusiness-like,
my child, to ory down your own wares?"
asked the kind-hearted millionaire. "My
sainted mother told me I munt never tell
a lio with my little hatohot," responded
Eli ph al et Buckram. The rich man was \
moved to tears; he took out his purse
and gave Eliphalet Buckram a pat on
the hoad, and said be was a good boy.
Whou he had gone, Eliphalet Buckram
said to little James, ".O, JamcB, what
mado you tell such a ?b? You know
those eggs were laid throe weeks ago.
You will seo that I have gained a cus?
tomer, aud you havo lost one." Well,
whou Eliphalet went home, his step?
mother cumo to 'au dour and said:
"Hero you are, you lazy little sneak, nud
.You haven't soli, tho pumpkin yet! I'll
pumpkin youl" And sha- took him in
her step-motherly arms, nud funned
him with an ox-goad until ho said that
ho would prefer taking meals off the
mantel-piece for thu next few consecu?
tive days, to sitting down with the rost
of the family. And next da}*, Daniel
Drow carno into the market "reariu*
and a toariu'," UH old inhabitants say,
and said: "Where is the boy that Bold
me thoso eggs?" aud Jim Fisk pointed
to Eliphalet and said: "Thora ho is,
air," and Daniel Drew reinforced that
boy's Btep-mother's ox-goad with his
cane so elTeotually that-but never mind.
So Daniel Drew bought all his gnrdeu
sass of Jim Fisk. In after life, Eliphalet
Buckram set up a grocery store, and
gave trtibt to all the poor people, and
never sanded his sugar, and wouldn't '
qualify his rum with water; BO ho burst
up, and the sheriff sold him out, and he
went to the poor-house. But Daniel
Drew kept his eye on Jim Fisk, aud
bye-andbye he gave him a partnership
in the Erie Arm, and Jim beat him ont
of $1,000,000. This is not a story for
good little boys. Wo fear it is too neur
AN UNDERGROUND RIVER.-The Craw?
ford County (Iud.) Democrat gives the
following, on the authority of "ono of
the best citizens of the County:"
Two men, na tu od John E. Stanley and
Fredrick Henninger, were employed to
dig a well on tho farm of Mr. Beujamiu
Ellis, who reeides in Washington County,
near the line of Harrison and Washing?
ton Counties. They had proceeded but
a short distance, however, when they
encountered a bed of loose "nigger?
head" rocks, whiob, upon being broken
open, were found to contain water and
other Bnbstanoes, supposed to be oro of
some kind. When they reached tho
depth of sixty feet from the surface,
they came to a large oave, which they
followed a distance of ten or twelve feet,
when there bofore their gazo was a beau?
tiful river of oleur water, whioh, upon
examination, was fouud to contain nn
innumerable number of small white Ash.
Upon a closer examination, it WIIH found
to be sixteen feet wide und live in depth,
and as clear and cold as spring water.
As an experiment, a lighted caudle was
placed upon ii small piece of plauk and
set afloat. It started off into tho dark?
ness, with the current, and was soon lost
to sight. Several persons have visited
this great curiosity, and many wero the
conjectures as to whore tho water carno
from and whither it went, but nothing
satisfactory could be arrived at.
IMPORTANT EXPERIMENT.-Au experi?
menting Detroit chemist took a pieoo of
thread bare ootton cloth, smeared it with
boiled linseed oil, aud put it in tho cen?
tro of a chest filled with paper nnd raga.
Although tho room was not tight and the
weather was cold, there was a smell of
tiro about tho room in eight days. Un?
packing it, the exporimentor fonnd thc
rag half charred. In April ho mado a
similar experiment with a pair of paint
era' overall?, whioh ho rolled up with
pine shavings and crowded in next to
the roof boards of a loft. In a week the
smell of smoke alarmed a workman in
the next room, nnd the overalls wore
found to be on fire. And during tho1
hottest weather, a handfull of old oottou
rags, not smeared with oil, became hot I
enough when hung np in a tin box in tho I
sun, to light matches whioh he had
placed among them. Thoso facta show
tho necessity of caution in putting away
rags, especially those that may bo satu?
rated with oil, benzine, or other inflam?

PBRVERTINO WORDS.-A late number
of the Atlanta (Ga.) Sun assertB that tho
compilers of tho last edition of Webster
have introduced into tho body of the
work such slang words as "lucofoco"
aud "copperhead." The first is defined
as applied to "a member of the Demo?
cratic party," and tho last to "a North?
ern sympathizer with the Southern rebel?
lion;" while the word "scalawag" has no
political signi?cauce given to it, and
"carpet-bagger" is not found in the
work. In regard to tho word "scala?
wag," the interesting faot may be stated
that it was first used in the cuttle reports
of the New York jTrtbune, by Solon
Robinson, who adopted the expression
from the drovers to designate lean,
scrubby cattle. Tho word as thus used
WRB a corruption by the drovers of Gal?
loway, a species of horses of a small
size, first bred in Galloway, Scotlund.
Mr. Greeley was the first in this oountry
to give scalawag a politioal sigoificanco,
using it as long ago as 1855 to describe
scurvy politicians. Thus much might
have boen mentioned in the last edition
of Webster without detriment to tho
most loyal sensibilities. Wo do not at?
tach much importance to tho omission
of carpet-bagger, as every oue knows
what that means.
It ia also alleged that in thc last edi?
tion, tho definition of "Congress," and
all such words ns "Stato," "constitu?
tion" and "compact" have boen changed
from all former editions. In tho former
editiou of tho work, Congress was de?
fined as follows:
"The Assembly of Senators and Rep
reoentatives of tue United States, ac?
cording to tho present constitution or
political compact, by which they are
united in a federal republic."
But in this last edition it in said to
have been changed to read as follows:
"The Assembly of Senators und Rep?
resentatives ot the people of a nation
especially of a republic-for tho purpose
of enacting lawH and considering mut
tuts of national interest, und couatitut
iug tho chief legislative body of tho na?
lu this editiou the words "United
States" havo been changed to "nation,"
ami in another line "federal republio" is
stricken out, and a "nation" substituted
in its placo.
An attempt b) pervert tho meaning of
words in tho interest of a political party
must be condemned by fair minded men
of all political ideas. To make a politi?
cal text book of a dictionary is certaiuly
n uew idea. This latest edition of Web?
ster is edited by a certain Dr. Portor.
Lo! TBS Poon li KATHEN.-On account
of tho inadmissibility of Chinese testi?
mony in the courts of California, wo are
told that the first of the miscreants tried
for his share in the Los Angelos riot,
which resulted in the murder of a num?
ber of unoffending Celestials, was ac?
quitted without having to offer auy de?
fence, Bolely becauso none but Mongo?
lian witnesses (though of these there
wero plenty) could be found for tho pro?
secution. Surely, such a state of affairs
is neither conducive to tho maintenance
of publio morals nor ultogother credit?
able to tho consistency of a civilization
whioh insists on first class hotel accom?
modations for peripatetic negroes, and
puts forth its might to mouogramize the
Mormon. Granting that ethnologists
are wrong, aud that thc African specios
of tho getius homo is higher thau the
Mongoliun in the scale of creaton; ad?
mitting even that, although no depth of
turpitude is deeper than Hogging a
colored brother, there is no particular
harm in killing a Cbiuamun, so far, at
least, as tho Chinaman himself is con?
cerned; we submit, nevertheless, that?
the avowed purpose of law is to disci?
pline criminals and to protect tho com?
munity at large against the repetition of
crime, without regard to tho individual
worthlessness of tho person who is chiefly
injured. It is on thin ground that the
man who should slay Senator Brownlow,
or steul tho putative property of Gen.
Butler, would Still be held amenable to
tho penalties in such cases made and
provided, and for the same reason that
rules in th iso extremo examples, it is to
tho interest of Caucasian Californians to
briug malefactors to justice, though it
were only a Chinaman who was robbed
or murdered. But if tho perpetration
of such a deed, among a crowd of other
Chinamen bo legally mudo equivalent to
its commission in impenetrable secrecy,
there is manifestly little usu in having
auy criminal courts at all.

THE BAD SPANISH PROSPECT.-Ama?
deas, tho young King of Spain, has
fouud Cabinet-making one of tho most
difficult tasks of bis new Government.
During the sbort period be has occupied
the Spanish throne, he has been chiefly
engaged in this perplexing business, and
has just completed again the formation
of a new Ministry. But the anarchical
condition of Spain and the uncertainties
of the future make some of those who
are most oompotent reluctant to accept
the position of Minister. The late com?
position of the Cabinet seems to be very
unpopular, and it is reported that tho
young King has become BO disgusted
with the ungovornable disposition of the
Spanish people as to contemplate abdi?
cation, and has urged his father, Victor
Emanuel, to sanction the stop, though
the Italian monarch advises him to be
patient, and to hold ou for tho present.
Tho head of the new Government, Sa
gosta, is spoken of as a postilent politi?
cian, who has gained a strong influence I
over tho mind of tho yoong King. It is
said that Sagosta belongs to the reac?
tionary party, and that he and the real I
of the Cabinet are in a minority iu tho]
Cortes. It is thought that while he re?
mains in power, there can be no hope of
peace iu Spain nor of roform in Cuba
and Porto Bico. Ho represents the
polioy of repression aud intrigue at
home, and complete subservience to tho
demands of tho slaveholders and the
volunteers of Havana in the colonies. lu

youths by tho armed mob at Havana,

and palliated such au oat. It seems evi?

to go through many trials before ar?

like that count ry, while discontented '

A COMET DARTINO DIRECTLY TOWARDS
OUR GLOBE.-A decidedly new sensation
is promised us ou tho 12th of next Au?
gust. The famous M. Plan (arnonr, Pro?
fessor of Astronomy at Geneva, has dis?
covered a now comet, which, it is de?
clared, execods iu size auy similar mctoor
hitherto kuowu of. By the elaborate
calculations of this learned observer,
the new comet is darting directly toward
our globe, with prodigious velocity, and
will come into collision with it on the
12th of August, us aforesaid. The ap?
proach of thia terriQc object will be he?
ralded by an extraordinary degreo of
heat; and the catastrophe cunuot possi?
bly be avoided. unUse by a deflection,
not now to bo prognosticated, produced
by tho comet impinging on the attract?
ive scopo of some ether heavenly body.
We believe that this alarming prophecy
corresponds with ono of Dr. Cummings'
more recent announcements, and, if so,
science aud religion-or ono eccentric
representative of it-will, for once and
unequivocally, be in accord. The inha?
bitants of tho earth will have, at least,
this consolation, that after tho Planta
mour comet comes within tho range of
telescopic observation, and becomes viai
ble to tho nuked eye, there will yot bo a
long time for them to set their houses in
order, and prepare for the "eternal
smash" that must ensue.
