Tea Btobt op Sctlla a Ci.btidis.
Scylla and Charybdli, or Scylla and Claueus
rather, is an appalling itory of jealousy.
Soylla properly belong to tho opposite ooast
of Naples; bat as she and her fellow monster
Charybdli are usually named together, and
tho latter tenanted the Sicilian coast, and the
Strait between them wa Tory narrow, aho is
not to be omitted ia Sicilian fable, Charvbdli
(quasi Ohalybdii, Sidmgt though tome derive
it from two word! signifying to "gape" and
"absorb") wai a female robber, who having
itolen the oxen of Hereulei, was condemned
to be a whirlpool, and luokihlp into Its gulf.
But she was a horror not to be compared with
Soylla, though the latter was thought less
dangerous to pass. It has bsen thought by
some that by the word Scylla is meant the
female of tho sea-dog, or teal, a creature often
found on thi coast. Be this as it may, and
the seal, having a more frightful Image, to lay
nothing of iti being more appropriate to the
water,) who was Soylla? and how came tho to
be thii tremendous monitor? From tho jeal
eusyofClree. ' -y - 1
- Scylla was originally a beautiful maiden,
fond of tho company of the sea-nymphi, and
Claueui, (lea-green) a god ef tho , was in
love with bar. She did not like him) and
Claueus applied to Circe for help, from her
skill in magic. Clroa fall in love with the
lover, and being enraged with the attractions
that made him refuse her, poleoned the water
in which Scylla bathed. The result wa the
conversion oi her lower limb into a set of
barking dogs. They were part of her; and
when in her horror she thought to drive them
back, she found herself "hauling" them with
her one' creature, lays Ovid, hauling many.
This li very dreadful; yet Homer's creature is
more so. ' Her proceeding exactly resemble
tho accounts which mariners have riven of a
huge sea-polypus a cousin of the kraken, er
sea-serpent who thrusts her gigantic feelers
over the deck of an unsuspecting ship, and
carries eft a few seamen. .There is a picture
of It in one of the editions of Baffon. But
tho dog-like barkingand theterrifio head and
teeth, to whioh the imagination involuntarily
gives something of a human aspect, leave th
advantage of the horrible still on tho side of
the poet. ' . . 'i- 1 r :
Thb Moktalitv nv Kttbopb. Notwithstand
ing the undeniable increase of JbtohUo mor
tality in Franoa from 1826, that country is still
in a muoh more favorable condition in that
respect than the neighboring nations, and
than England in particular. To prove thii,
he furnishes from the data contained in M.
Legoyt'i Dictiomrjf of Political Economy, the
following account of the number of personi
between the age of twenty and thirty, who
died in different countries in the course of ten
years, out of a population of ton thousand
individuals: Piedmont, 1,545; Franoe, 1,680;
Styria, l,79f; Belgium, 1,999; Denmark, 2,
S15; Saxony, 2,381; Prussia, 3,881; England,
8,218. : .... ; ;'
. Henso it appears that the mortality of young
people Is twice as great in England as it Is
either in Piedmont or France. ' In the year
Z (1802), tho one hundred and eight depart'
ments whioh composed France contained a
population of 84,976,843 Inhabitants, 5,738,000
of whom were between the ages of .twenty and
thirty. . The number of deaths In the course
of the year was 875,490; of theie 44,280 were
betwsen those ages, thus giving the ratio) of
77 to 10,000. And at present this ratio hai
doubled, being 154 deaths out of 10,000 live.
Tho same appear to have taken place all
ever Europe, so that France In this respeot Is
in the lame position as it wai before, ia com-
E aviso with other nationi. Buffon sayi that
1 England the mortality 01 young people was
In the eighteenth oentury much greater than
in Franoe, and 10 it is to thii day. ; '
POUTIOAL ExOITBUIST III HUHSABY A
Favobailb 8iok. a letter from Pesth sayi:
"Th national demonstrations of the Hunga
rians, are inoreasing and multiplying in a
manner which must, one would think, cause
eriou anxiety to th Viennese Government.
Another most striking one took ploe three
nights back at .the opera-house in this city.
The moat popular of the national operas,
Eskel'i Buxyadi Laulo, (Ladislas Hunyadi,)
was performed, and the house wai crowded
from top to bottom. , Every Hungarian in it
whether high or low, young or old, male or
female was in the national oostum. t In
boxes, pit and galliry, the well-known and
muoh loved garb wa alone to be seen. It is pos
sible that to .some English folk a display of
mere tailoring aad millinery may appear
puerile in a people in the grave position in
which the Hungarians now stand; but among
a semi-Oriental nation like the Hungarians,
matten of oostuma are' not unimportant; and
besides, the resuscitation of national garb,
after it hai long been almost universally laid
aside, could scarcely, I fancy, fail to move
any man . who really love his coin try, even
though he thonld bo ef a oalmer raoe and a
more northern clime than th Magyar." ...

The Paris correspondent of the London Lite
rary QattUt say that with regard to ladies'
dreesee there i a system established in the
Imperial Court' at Compiegne ' that seems
something positively wloked. Four toilettes
a day ar about the general requirement,
though there are days when only three are
neury; the invitations are for sight days,
and no lady is expected evr to be seen twice
wearing the same gown. ' Count this up, and
yon wlu find an average of thirty or thirty-two
toilettes to be carried down to the court. Sup
poaff a female thvtfe not to be .alone, but to
hav a daughter (or two daughters) with her
you some at ones, to ninety or ' n inety
six dresses I Now, th average of these
gown will be 250 francs (10,) because, while
the finr on cost 300, 400, or 600 francs
each, there may be seme whioh cost only 120
Or 150 franes; but pall them all at 250 franos,
yon reach, for each person, th figure, of ! 300
or 320, and if two persons, 600 or 840; if
three, 900 or 960. : ft 'j j

ton would become too common and loio It
value. When tho war of Independence wai
ever, feneral Bolivar granted a privilege to
open the mines to Benor Paris, who made an
lmmenie fortune from them, which was in
herited by hii son.
Ob the expiration of the contract with Senor
Pari!) th mine were rented by a company ef
merchants in Bogota, at the rate of $18,000
per annum, but their operations have been
eoaiuited with lilenco and leorecy. As thii
eontrMt Is about to expire, th Oranadian
Government, with that liberal spirit whioh hai
alwayi marked Iti pelioy, has determined to
throw them open to the competition of the
enterpri of tho world.
i , W hav vklted tho mines and carefully ex
amined the working. The operation is proba
bly tho simplest mining operation in th
world. The veins of calcareous spar whioh
contain th emerald crop out on the cppoiing
sides of a deep ravine. These are worked
down with the par, and the debris is carried
off by a ruih of water. When indications of
the xlstenoe of emeralds appear in the face of
the ollff, through the greenish ting whioh th
vela of white ipar asiumei, the stone is worked
off with great oar until th emerald pooket is
reached. The opening offered by the Orana
dian Government to the mining enterprise of
the world Is a novel one, which may produce
great changes la the supply of gemi.
Nudb Air. Some squeamish oritlc who
does not love nude Art, whioh we confess we
do, writes as follows: Paganism loved to wor
ship the naked body, and to forget the soul In
the contemplation of the body. This led to
horrid degradation and vice, to the blotting
out, almost, of humanity in the asoendenoy of
animallty. Christianity arose that it might
effect the resurrection of the spirit through
the proper subordination of the flesh; ' It was
a happy turn In the religious current of
man's life which substituted the Christian
Madonna for the mythological Venus; it was
the first suoceiiful effort to det&ah the spirit
from the flesh th soul from the body. The
artist ii happy and on a level with our age,
who, in the contemplation of one of Raphael'!
or' Murillol Madonna,' forgets even that
Praxiteles ever sculptured a Venus. Shall we
likewise pay that the artist who first ban-
taha nakaa art fmm mnitsn

will b immortal as having been the first to
euoet u uopaeaaoio arc-gun Between pagan
and Christian art?

whioh is so potent to make ns forget all the

Satah's Mabx os Swan. A few days since,
ingoing into my back yard, whet afresh
killed pig had just been hung up, a man who
knew I was curious in snob, matter, said:
There, now, there's tho mark aa Satan made
it in tho herd of swine before they ran down
the cliffs into the sea," pointing to five dark
marks on the skin of the iniide of each fore
leg. On my questioning him, he assured me
he had never seen a pig without them (I hav
sine looked at five, and they had the lame);
and he laid tho tradition was that all swine
had them ever sinoe the casting out of the
devils whioh destroyed the herd in , the sea.
My queries are, does thii mark always exist?
How do anatomists account '; for it ? Notn
