A Chinese Juggler.
The Chinese correspondent of the London
Times writes copiously about things inside of
Pekln. Among other things is a picture of a
Pekin juggler going through his performance
in the streets: "He first of all spoke for abont
fifteen minuses with all the volubility of Charles
Matthews, evidently ssvine something wittv.
for the people round laughed heartily. In the
middle of his harangue, however, be was seized
with ant or choking, and alter an errort or try
ing to sret something, out of his throat, drew
forth alittle slip of bamboo, like a Lisbon tooth
pick, then another and another, then be sneezed,
and ont they came from bis nostrils, then from
hie eyes, nntil he completed the number of thir-ty-eeven,
by mi k log one appear half way oat
of each orifice at the same time, and then
threw the lot on the ground for any one to ex
amine. He next took three glass balls abont
an inch in diameter, and placing them sing
ly between bis lips, sucked them into
bis mouth and awallowed first a red
oatv then a blue, snd last of all a white one;
here was a little interlude of toothpicks aud talk
ing; after which he walked gravely round the
ring, stopping four times; each time be gave
himself a shake and a jump, when the balls
were distinctly besrd to jingle InBide of him.
On completing his round, alter several efforts,
he spst upon the ground the balls in the same
order he bad swallowed them the red first snd
the white last. He then took two more balls
one of polished steel abont the size of a hen's
egg, and another of glass the ssme sizo. These
first be let tail on tne ground to snow tney were
solid; then, placing tbem between bis lips,
be swallowed tbem like tbe smaller ones, but
with more difficulty, the ball swelling the
throat very perceptibly as it went down; here
more toothpicks snd talking, while be prepared
two swords, about an inch :wiae ana twenty
long, very like polished boop iron, clashed
tbem together to show tbat they were real, and
passed both of them down bis throat at once,
until they struck the balls with an audible click;
itbdrawiDs these, he placed bis bands behind
bim, sod, after several palnfal trials, each ball
rose in the throat, snd fell from bis mouth to
tbe ground with a heavy thump."
A Paris paper tells the following very Frenchy
story of a "worthy gentleman," who, having un
fortunately married a termagant, resolved to
become a widower in a way not to expose him
self to tbe penalties ot the law. Without ex
pressing any opinion as to the morof of the hus
band's conduct, we copy tbe anecdote, trusting
his example will not find imitators in this re
gion: He owned a beautiful country eest, situsted
on the bank of a delightful river, to which his
lady wat much attached, and which she visited
regularly every Sunday morning. She had lor
this purpose a charming little mule, with splen
did trappings, and of which great care was
For three days previous 10 the lady's accus
tomed visit, the husband had deprived the ani
mal of all drink, so that it was almost furnish
ed. Sunday morning came; the lady set out
on her mule, accompanied by her husband, who
was anxious to see the sport, i ne poor beast
sought water on all sides, and had no soouer
discovered the river, than with the rapidity of
lightning be started on, and stopped not till bo
bad plunged himself head and ears into the
river. The bank was steep and the stream both
rapid and deep at tbis place, and lady and mule
were soon buried beueath the waves. Tbe
husband regretted the loss of the mule, but
reasoned like a philosopher, that to accomplish
one s purpose sacrifices must be made..
A Short Story by Dickens.
Dickens telle the following story of an Amer
icsn sea captain:
On his last voysge home, the captain had on
