Tennyson is here in his olomont, that of
story-telling; the spirit of the troubadours
and minnesingors is reproduced in him, and
he is never great but in that direction. Let
mo adl'iso those who have been interested in
the old English region where this work has
introduced ihem, to contiuuo their acquaint
ance therein by reading an old work found
in Bohn's sories, A"ir Early Mttucal llo-
NOMAD.
NeVbh DoToo Much at aTime. Sir Edward
Buln-er Lytton,1 in a lecture recently deliv
ered in England, gave the following hintory
oi his literary habits: i
Many persons seeing mo so much engaged
in activo 1 i lb, and as much about tho world
as if I had novcr been a student, have said
to ine: "When do you got time to write all
your books? j How on earth do you contrive
todolso much work?" I shall surprise you
by the answer I make, Tbo answer is this:
I contrive to do so much by never doing too
much at a timo. A mnu, to get through work
well must not overwork himself: jdr, if he do
too much to-day, the reaction of fatiguo will
some, and he will be obliged to do too little
to-morrow.
Now, since I began really and earnestly to
study, which was not till I bad left college
and was actually in the world, I may perhaps
say pat I have gone through os largo a course
of general reading as most men of my time. I
have traveled much,' and I have seen much ;
I ba.ve mixed much ia politics; and the vari
ous pnsiness of life; and, ia addition to this,
I have published somewhere about sixty vol
umes, some upon subjeota requiring much, re
search. And what time do you think, as a
general rule, I have devoted to study to read
ing hnd writing 1 Not more than throe hours
a dajy; and when Parliament is sitting, not al
ways that, But then, during these hours, I
have givon my wholo attention to what I was
about.

The Roll Bishops of the American
Methodist Church.
From nrptinization to 1800, Thomas Coke
and Francis Anbury were the pioneer Biah
ops. Richard Wbi.tcont was then elected one
of the 6iiierintcndeuts, and continued in uct
ive traveling service until the time of his
death. He came to America in 1784, afier
being a serviceable preacher in Etmlaud,
Ireland and Wales fur fifteen years. He was
elected American Superintendent, or Bishop,
May, 1800, and died at Dover, Dela., July
5, 1806. Dr. Coke returned to Europe, ami
William McKendree waa elected Bishop.
Francis Asbury and William MnKonrlree
continued the only Superintendents of the
church for several years.
Dr. 'Coke waa a Welchman. He ca ne to
America in 1784, butaoou became a niiiuion
ary to the West Indies; and in 1813 ho started
t'rf Coylon, India, to carry the gospel "to the
poor Asiatics," but he died on ship-board in
May of that year, beforo he reached his field
of labor.
A vault in the Methodist church In Eutaw
stroet, Baltimore, contains tho earthly ro
maics of Biahop f 'raneia Asbury, who died ou
the 31st March, JslS. He was a laborious
American Bishop nearly thirty-two years.
ine Disimps irom laiu to IS24 were Wil
liam McKendree, Enoch Goorge and Robert
Riohford Roberts, when Joshua Soule and
Elijah Hedding were added to tho roll.
Bishop George died at Stauntoo, Vn., August
23, 1S2S. Ho additions were inodo until
1822, when James 0. Andrew and John Em
ory were olocted Bishops. Bishop McKen
dree died March fi, 1835. On tho lfith De
cember Bishop Emory was thrown from his
carriage near Baltimore, and received a
wound in his head, of which he died in a few
hours. Beverly Waugh and Thomas A. Mor
ris wero elected Bishops to fill the vacancies.
Bishop Roberts died at his residonoe in Indi
ana, 26th of March, 1843.
The roll of Bishops in 1844 was inscribed
with the names of Joxhua Soule, Elijah Hed
ding, James 0. Andrew, Bevorly Waugh,
Thomas A. Morris, Leonidas L. Humlino and
Edmund K. Janes. During this year a
Southern Methodist Church Conference was
formed, and tho venerable Dr. Joshua Soulo,
residing iu Franklin, Tcnn., identified him
self with that organization. In 18j2 Bishop
Hainlina voluntarily surrendered the Epia
copul office, in consequence of protracted in
riiaiKisition. Dr. Jamea Onrond Andrw ut..
tached hiiuaolf to the Church South. It was
his nmrringe to a lady holding slaves, we
believe, that occasioned the excitement in
Geuerul Conference, which resulted in the
division of the church into North and South.
Matthew 8impson and Edward Amos wero
elected Bishops iu 1852. They wore both
natives of Ohio.
A Thrilling Scene in an English Court.
The English papers received by the A'riea
are full of the proceedings of a most interesting
mardor trial whioh has jiut taken place in
London, and the details of which possessed
features as remarkable as the famous Palmer
0880, which exoited so much attention a few
years ago. Tho case was that of a physician
named Smetbarst, who committed bigamy and
then poisoned the second wifo to got her prop
erty. The London -Vrios says:
Wbon the Lord Chief Buron put on his
black cap, and was abuut to pus the sentence
of death, the prisoner checked him by reading
aspo'ch. Uo spoke in a oitlm, composed Iolo
of voice, nnd during the time he was speaking,
whioh was nearly five and twenty minutes, he
did not evince tbo least emotion, lie com
menced by saying:
"1 swear to God that I am perfectly inno
centof havingodmiuistered anything wrong
to the deceased. I admit that I acted ille
gally in marrying her when my wife was
alive; but I did it tor her sake She was a
lady of fortuuo and position, and her friends
wero very respectable, &nd I married her to
protect her from self-reproach, tiDtil we could
contract a legal marriaga after the death of
my wife, who is uoiv Beveuty-1'nur years old,
and who could not iu the ordii.ury course of
events ba expected to live iniiny years. Wo
loved each other with great uU.achiuent.
During tho time w wero together we never
had nil angry word, and wu never hud tho
lefl't discomfort."
Tho prisoner heard tho sentence without
exhibiting the least emotion, nnd when the
Lord Chief Baron had concluded, ho ex
cltiimi'd in a firm voice: "I declare Dr. Ju-liu-t
to bo my murderer. I declare I am in
nocent before God."
DfiroRTMEriT of Jap.m.ksk ptipiu. A letter
f'oni Shanghai, China, written rn board the
fouiAtilnit to the Journal of Commerce, contains
some interesting information about tbo Japan
ese, and their facility in mastering the En
glish language, also descriptive of their man
ners and habitat The writer, it appears, kept
a school at Nagasaki, and bo thus speaks of
tha deportment toward him and to oue another
of his pupils:
. H)w gracefully thoy walkod in! How low
they bowed, all tbese coming forward to shake
bands 1 What eaiilos always sat upon tbeir
faces, while they instantly sat down to tho
table and vigorously commonced the studios of
theds; ! Nor was their courtesy to me greater
than to one another ; for when one camo in
later tban the rest, they roso to receive him,
while he held his bead almost to the lluor in
return. Not one instance of disobedience or
disrespect occurred not one angry or discour-
teous word was uttered not one moment's
passion was lowored upon a single faco. Sou-
timents of mutual affection soon sprang up,
which was strengthened to the close of the
school, and made tho last hour truly painful.
They bad never written with a quill, but In
stantly usod it with the utmost easo, though
from habit preferred tho hair pencil universally
in use by tho Japanese as well as tho Chinese,
India ink was tho only, kind used. Tboir
specimons of chirography are so much alike
that it is hard to distinguish one from an
other, while the round manly band could be
improved by no master. The boys evinced
much sifootion for thoir teaoher, as well b
great aptitude in acquiring tho English language.
TtiK CUKMI9TBY ot' Natuhk. Ono of tho
mountain streams which form tho Schuylkill
River holds in solution so much lime from
the limestone region which it traverses that
tho water ia unsuited for domestic purposes.
Another stream is so strongly impregnated
with sulphuric acid from the coal mines that
it kills all the fish within thirty miles. Both
streams, which unite above Reading, are
clear and transparent abovo their juuetion,
but below the united stream presents a milky
and clouded appearance. Iiero nature performs
oue of the largest, grandest and most
useful chemical experiments in the world.
Hero two streams of impure water are made
ono, and purified hy the chemical attraction
of the impurities of both. Hero the lime
held ia solution by the waters of Maiden
Creok unites with the aoid which impreg
nates the Schuylkill, and forms gvpsutn
first coloring the water a bluish white, and
then rendering it clenr und. pure beforo it
reaches Reading, by the (linking of tho gyp
sum to the bottom of tho stream. But for
this combination the , oily of Philadelphia,
which it supplies, would bi without
water from its present aourca tit for domestic
Ull.
A Frw Words About HmzuGiHts. Tsylor,
, of the Chicago Jon. jiuf, has the following:

Maoklins Smith Light os an OldCasb.
A correspondent of the Stamford Herald states
that a gentleman who has just returned from
abroad throws some light upon tho death of
L'Angelier, for the alleged murder of whom,
it will be reoolleoted, Miss Madeline Smith was
put upon trial. It says :
About fifteen or eighteen months before
L'Angelier's death, this gentleman attended o
chemistry cIaes along with him, sat next to
him in the olaej, was uncustomed to walk bon e
with him after it was dismissed, and was thus
on somowbat intiuiute terms with him.
One day in the class, L'Angelier was
searching for something iu hia pocket, and
not being alilo to find it readily, he turned
outthe whole contents on the seat, and among
other things, a small paper parcel tied with
a string. The string got lonue, and ono end
of tho paper had opened a little, so that part
of tho contents, a whitish-like powder, lell
upon tho seat. The young gentleman hav
ing asked L'Augolier what powder it wu,
the latter said it was prseuic, and that le
h:id been in the habit of carrying somoofit
in his poekot ever since ho left Jersey. On
his companion exprorsing bis surprise that
he carried poison in hia pocket, and inquir
ing what use he tnade of it, L'Angelier re
plied, "I could lor I would) use it it 'anything
troubled or anuoyod mo,"
