An Ancient I'mxTiNCi Press. It is
generally supposed that the art of print
ing from movable types was discovered
by (iuttenberg in the llftcenth century.
Recent excavations in the Benares dis
trict, in India, have brought to light a
kind of printing press, sot up in a vault,
and on it movable types, placed as if
ready for printing, which, it was judged
had remained in the stale in which they
were found for at least a thousand

i a noticeable fact, that in the large
workshops, manufactories, and foun
dries in our cities, at least three-fourths
of the workmen, and almost all of tho
younger journeymen and apprentices
iire foreign born, or the sons of foreign
parents. Many American parents bring
up their children to feel that manual and
mechanical arts are not as genteel as
other professions, so that they are fall
ing into the handsof foreigners.
AlAltK TWAIXON FEMALE HUEl-RAOD.
"Mark Twain" writes to his "Cousin
Jennie" on tho subjects of "female suf
frage," as follows : '
"There is one insurperable obstacle in
the way of female Hiilliage, Jennie. 1
approach the subject, with fear and
trembling; but it must out. A woman
would never vote, because she would
have to tell her ago at the polls. And
even if she did dare to vote once or twice
when she was just of age, you know
what dire results would How from 'put
ting this and that together' in after
times. For instance, in an unguarded
moment, Miss A. says she voted for Mr.
Smith. I ler auditor, who knows that it
is seven years since Smith ran for any
thing, easily cyphers out that she is
at least seven years over age, instead of
the youngpullct she has been making
herself out to be. No, Jennie, this new
fashion of register!!)!; the name. age. resi
dence, and occupation of every voter, is
a latal oar to leinale sullrage."
