the brilliant effect of this gorgeous oostume.
The ocrulian coat was not improvod by the
gutter mud; the pantaloons had not pres

amid the refuse of the market upon which
they had reposed; the remnant of a too
ripe peach was on bis shirt color; a decayed

But amid his troubles, Mr. Vano pr es
erved the dignified bearing and flowery
language of a person of some educational
pretensions; indeed he stated that he was
"Perpetual president of the Colored Sons
of Genius," an association of kindred con
genial literary men. His answers to the
questions of the Judge proved that he had
taught an approximative sound if not the
exact sense of many words of larger di
mensions than are generally in vogue
among men of bis condition and complex
ion. When brought to the stand he threw
himself upon bis sctolarly diguity and
launched at the astonished Judge words
of portentous length and sound, as if he
intended to annihilate that estimable per
sonage by the sheer destructive power of
the English language.

tne Old Root Doctor's Foundry, whore he
may at all times bo found except when ab

In addition to his regular duties as a

Growing of the West. ,
The tide of emigration during tho past
year has strongly beet toward the North
western States ; indeed it has exceeded all
precedent. It is said that by the first of
January next, the single Stato of Iowa
will contain over half a million of persons.
The Census of the state iu 1850 showed
a population of but 173,000. In June,
1854, according to tho State Census, it had
increased to 326,000. With such a pre
cedent, it is not improbable that at tho
next National Census the returns will foot
up nearly one million of inhabitants.
The stato of Wisconsin, which h some
what older than Iowa, nearly keeps pace
with her neighbor. In 1850 the popula
tion was nearly 305,000.' Tho State Cen
sus, which will soon bo completed, will, ac
cording to the Milwaukse Sentinel, show
nioro than 600,000. If this ratio contin
ues, till 18G0, moro than a million of in
habitants will be found in tho State. A
paralcll instance of such incrcaso of popu
lation can hardly bo found in tho world's
history. Pitta. Jour.
How to Drive a Nail. In driving a
nail into bard wood, its entrance will bo
much facilitated by dropping it into oil, or
what will answer nearly as well, wet it with
water or 6aliva. Experienced carponters
are in tho habit of putting a nail into the
mouth to wGt it, before attempting to drive
it into hard wood. When a nail is to re
main permanently, salt water or saliva is
prcferable to oil, as the former will rust
the nail and cause it to take a firmer hold,
In all cases it i3 better to insert a nail po
that its widest diameter shall stand para-
lell with the grain of the wood. This is
generally done in thin boards where there
is danger of splitting, but it should al-
ways be done, even if nailing into a solid
piece of timber ; for where a rupture docs
not take place by setting the wide part of
tho nail across tho grain, yet a slight open-
ing is produced near the nail, which ad-
mits air and moisture, and hastens decay
around it. Boston Post.

Irg-The Louisville Journal, in a recent
article in allusion to the many affidavits
published by the American party from
highly respectable citizens as to the origin
of the riot, says: ...
"Never on earth was a fact more clear
ly and triumphantly and incontestably es
tablished by the sworn testimony of unim
peachable men and women, ef all parties
and all religions, than the fact that the
bloody riots wero commenced in our quiet
streets by Germans and Irish, armed and
infuriated by native demagogues. As yet,
there is nothing to counteract that testi
mony, nothing to weigb against it, except
the irresponsible assertions of Sag Nieht
editors, founded upon kuow body knows
And still other affidavits can be, pud in
all probability will bo procured and pub
lished, revealing facts that will still further
startle and shock tho already startled and
shocked mind of the community facts
which certain persons will shrink from the
sight of, as from tho presence of a spec
tre. A feeblo promise has been held out
from day to day of certificates to prove the
Sag.Nicht statements, yet sixteen days
have elapsed since the election, and the
certificates not forthcoming. If there are
such things, let them not tarry. Let them
appear, sworn or unsworn to.
A Petrified Indian. While engaged
in excavating recently upon tho Milwau
kie and La Crosso railroad, near Scbles-
scngcrvillo, Iowa, the workmen came upon
the petrified remains of an Indian, aud
with the remains some singular relics of
the olden times. The body was perfect,
not having suffered by decay. His height
at the present day, would bo considered
gigantic, measuring seven feet two inches,
On bis breast was a plate of copper, on
which was engraved numerous hieroglyph-
ics, the meaning of which ean hardly be
imagined. But they are a record of the
past. Could these hieroplyphics be read,
they might, perhaps, unveil some of the
mystery which bangs like a dark cloud
over the history of tho rod man. An ar
row of considerable strength and curious
construction was also found with him, and
