erected lor tde accommodation of the"products

tiondon paper saysr ? . . . 1 ' . '
.- "The building will be about 2,300 feet long,
rather more than 400 teet across, and the
roofed area will probably extend to about 900,-
000 square feet, or upwards of 20 acres.- In
the centre of the south front, opposite Prince's
Gate, will be placed -the principal entrances
and offices; ? There will be; three other great
entrances in the centre of the other side of the
building, : Gangways, 48 feet wide, clear and
uninterrupted, excepting by sea', will connect
the entrances, and. at the intersection ot these .
main lines it is proposed to form, a grand cir-;
cular hall for sculpture, 200 feet in diameter, j
Considerable space surrounding the old trees
will be fitted up with refreshment rooms, sur
rounding ornamental gardens , with fountains
&c. . . . . '.
n "The vast area destined to be filled with the
products of all climes, will be "covered with
remarkably simple iron looting, of 48 feet span,
running from end to end of the building, sup
ported by hollow iron columns, resting on
brick piers, and covered very probably with
boarding and slate." : ; 's j
The extent of the roof covering the main
avenue will be 98 feet - The lowest line of
the main roofing will be 24 feet high, and the
clear heigth of the central gangway will be
about fifty feet." The' floor will, for by far the
greater portion ot the area, be lormed ot board
ing; Jaid on joists and sleeper walls. The ex
ternal enclosures will in all cases be construc
ted of brick; The light will principally be
driven from skylights. The central hall will
be a polygon of 16 sides, four of which will
opeh into gardens reserved , around it.. Its
main walls will be of brick, and about sixty
feet hifirh. '. The covering of this snlendid apart-

The Sorinrrfield Republican' has been furn
ished by an antiauarian friend, with . the fol
lowing singular and interesting explanation of
the way in which the mummy recently untold-
ed at tSoston, got into the 'wrong box.' ,
The announcement of the sex of Mr. Gide
on's mummy, immediately recalled to my
mind a story which I had read some years
since, in an old Egytian manuscript, a work
half of medicine and half of romance. .. To this
I referred upon opportunity, and my surprise
you can well imagine, when I found myself
reading of the very Friestess whose body Mr.
Giddon supposed he " possessed. The name
was the same, and the whole history explained.

tion: , vv'-"? , : -"'
"Rite Thpunki was an officer of middling
(Ilia HI UV QCIVICC Ul illV bClupiQ B XULo.
In the discharge of his sacred duties he had
t. ; uM : r iU . l.. TkakA.
occassiorr daily to visit the abode of the High
Priest his superior, .toot. Iboth-i. ,. JNow lot
Thoth-I had one daughter, and sue was tal
ler than all the maidens of Thebes. Her feet
and bands were large, even for one of her
proportions ; her nose was a real pug, and her
complexion sallow. Who would have deemed
it possible that she could disturb the peace of
any young man's hours? ; But her graces of
mind far outweighed, the defects of person
al beauty. -' She played upon the cystrum as
only Isis could :' and not Orisist could surpass
the justice and wisdom of her opinions.' Rite
Tbpunki, who at first joined his brother priests
in the laugh at her homliness, did not long re
main insensible to the mental charms which
she displayed, and Anch Phis," delighted at
seeing in her lover an appreciation of her tal
ents, and independence enough to brave the
jeers of his light minded associates, fully recip
rocated the affection she had kindled. Fool
ish pair! They little knew the temper of the
haughty Got Thoth-I, and that he would nev
er consent to their union. Rite-Thpunki had
scarcely declared his passion to the father
of his beloved, than he was overwhelmed with
a torrent of contempt, and ' forbidden to enter
the palace or speak again to his mistress on
pain of death, . - - - .- ; -
The next morning as Anch Phis, whose du
ty it was to file the claws and bill of the sa
cred Ibis, descending to the palace yard for
the purpose, the bird ran to her "with its wont
ed haste, and raising its left wing disclosed a
note pinned to one of its. feathers. . She seiz
ed and read "Bulbul! when the Dog Star
rises, meet me by the mystic; Lotus. Rite
Thpunki." , They met one embrace a few
hurried words, and Anch Phis, receiving a
small powder in her hand, departs, leaving her
lover to meditate his plan.
. In less than . twenty-four hours from this
meeting, the most distinguished physicians in
Thebes might have been seen wending their
way with anxious faces to the palace of Got-Thoth-L"
And why anxious? Alasl Anch
Phis, the delight of their eyes the life of the
many festive entertainments her father had
given them in token of his esteem for the pro
fession Anch Phis was going to die. A sud
den illness was fast,- though gently, stealing
away her life. , "Had she been young and
handsome," said Giv-Bred-Phil, the most suc
cessful and wealthy practitioner of Thebes. "I
should think she was dying of disappointment
in -matters of love." : Imagine the horror of
Got-Thoth-I! . He had killed his only child !
Bis iron heart relented. "Perhaps it is hot
yet too late." - A faint smile illumined the
face of his daughter.. A messenger fleet as
wind, was sent to the temple for Rite-Thpunki.
He comes but it is too late. She grasped his
hand, and ceased to breathe.
, And now with a voice scarcely audible from
well dissembled grief the seven' hours of
watching having expired Rite-Thpunki, begs
that the body erf his love may be sent to his
cell, that he may embalm it a last act of de
votion. This request is granted. " But why,
when his cell door is shut, and be is left alone
with bis mistress' lifeless form, and the. half
wrapped mummies which surround them
why does his eye gleam with wild, yet tender
delight ? He can hardly command his joy.
He walks his narrow cell with rapid strides.
And see ; he has taken that mummy of a com
mon soldier and placed it by his lady's side.
"Just her length," he almost shouts, but re
strains himself-r "how fortunate?". And now
red Aldebaran, which ever and anon he gazed
at with straining eyes, shines through the nar
row window over his head . "The hour has
come," he says, and fixes his eye on the face
he adores. "Can it be ? Yes she lives! A
sigh a shudder she opens her eyes. .. A
gesture from her lover restrains an exclama
tion she is on thepointof making she comes
to herself and returns' his ardent embrace.
Of course the intelligent reader understands
the nature of the powder given under the mys
tic Lotus. "We have played boldly and won !"
says Rite-Thpunki. A blush from his . love
expresses her unspeakable happiness.';
Our story is soon told. - Anch Phis remain
ed in the. cell of her lover until seventy days,
the time required for embalming; had expired.
The body of the soldier was returned to Got-Thoth-I
as that ofhis daughter. Rite Thpun
ki performed the. disconsolate lover at the fu
neral to admiration, and a few days after,
when there occurred a night of uncommon
darkness, be and his beloved entered a boat,
and floating down the Nile landed on a small
island where they spent the remainder of their
days in peace and happiness. . .

There is no sunshine that hath not its shade.'
Nor shadow that the sunshine hath not made;

That doth not own its fearful counterpart. -

"The price o an Opinion, w
. In a cold night of November, in the year of
182o, a man enveloped in a cloak, rapped at
the door of one of the most distinguished ad
vocates of Paris. He was quickly shown into
the chamber of the learned lawyer. ' "
- 'Sir,' said he, placing upon the table a large
parcel of papers, 'I am rich; but the suit that
has been instituted against me to-day will en
tirely ruin me. . At my nge a fortune is not
to be rebuilt; so that the loss -of my suit will
condemn me forever to the most frightful mis
ery. " I come to ask the aid of your talents.
Mere are the papers ; as to the facts, 1 will, H
you please, expose them clearly to you.' A . j
llie advocate listened attenively to the stran
ger; then opened the parcel, examined all the
papers it contained, and said 'Sir, the action
laid against you is founded in justice and mor
ality.: , Unfortunately, in spite of the admira
ble perfection of. our codes, law does not al
ways accord with justice, and here the law is
for you. If therefore, you rest strictly upon
the law, and avail "yourself without exception
of all the means' in your favor; if, above all,
these means are exposed with clearness and
force, you will infallibly gain this suit, and no
body can afterwards dispute that fortune which
you fear to lose.' .
'.Nobody m the world replied the client, 'is
so competent to do this as yourself. , . An opin
ion drawn up in this sense and signed by you
would render rae invulnerable. I am bold
enough to hope that you will not refuse it to
The skillful advocate reflected for some mo
ments, and taking up again the papers which
he had pushed away with an abruptness pecu
liar to him, said that he would draw up the
opinion, and that it should be finished the fol
lowing day at the same hour.
The client was punctual to bis appointment.
The advocate presented him with the opinion,
and without taking the trouble to reply to the
thanks with which the other overwhelmed
him, said to him rudely ;
ivre is the opinion ; there is no judge, who,
after having seen that, will condemn you.
Uive me 3,000 trancs V
The client was struck dumb and motionless
.'xou are free to keep your money,' said the
advocate, "as I am to throw this opinion into
the fare.' .- - 1 :
So speaking, he advanced towards the chim
ney; but the other stopped nun, and declared
that he would - pay the sum demanded, but
that be bad only bolt ot it with bim. " ' :
He drew, in fact, from bis pocket book
1,500 francs -in .bank-notes. "The advocate
with one hand took the. notes, and with the
other threw the opinion into a drawer. .
'But,' said the client, '1 am going, it you
please, to give you my note for the remainder.'
1 want money, tiring me l.suu moreirancs,
or you shall not have one line.' -
There was no remedy, and tbe a,uuu lrancs
were paid ; but tbe client, to revenge himself
of being so pillaged, hastened to circulate this
anecdote. : It got into tbe papers, and tor a
fortnight there was a deluge of witticisms of
all Kinds upon the disinterestednes ot toe
great advocate. Those who did not laugh at
it, said it was deplorable that a man of such
merit should be tainted with a vice so degrad
ing as avarice. . Even bis friends were moved
by it, and some oi them went so tar as to re
monstrate with him publicly; but the only re
ply he gave "was by shrugging his shoulders,
and then ' as everyteing is quickly forgot at
.Paris, people soon ceased to talk oi this.
leu years bad passed. Une day the Uourt
of Cassation, in its red robes, was descending
the steps of the palace of Justice, to be pres
ent at a public ceremony. All at once a fe
male darts from the crowd, throws herself at
the feet of the procureur-cenerat, seizes the
end of his robe and presses it to her lips.
1 he woman is looked upon as deranged, and
they try to drag her away. " .
'Oh, leave me alone, leave me alone, she
cries, 'I recognize him it is he, my preserver!
Thanks to bim, I have been able to bring up
my large family. 1 hanks to him, my old age
is'haDDv- Ob. vou do not know me. One
day- I was very unhappy then I was advis
ed to bring an action against a distant relation
of my last husband, who" had possessed him
self of a rich heritage tnat ought to nave come
to my children. Already 1 had sold half of
my goods to begin, the action, when,' one eve
ning-, 1 saw enter my bouse a gentleman, wno
said td me 'Do not' go to law; reason and
morality are for you, but the law is against
you. Keep tbe little you nave, ana aaa it to
these three thousand .francs, which are truly
yours.' I remained speechless with surprise.
When I would bave spoten and tnanKed mm,
he had disappeared;' but the' bag of money
was there, upon my table, and the counten
ance of that generous man was engraved upon
my heart, never to be erase. Well this man
this preserver of my family is here! .. Let
me thank bim before liod and Detore men !"
The court had stopped. " The procureur
general appeared moved, but conquering his
emotions, be said ,;. : . .- , v,
Take away this good woman, and take care
no harm comes to her. I dont think she is
quite right in her mind.'

If is not often that a lady gets into a closer
squeeze than did the one mentioned in the
following account If the gentleman was a
democrat she was in the midst of three loco
motives all progressives. ... , .
"A little before 9 o'clock yesterday morning,
asthe train was leaving Newark when rounding
Bergen Cut a gentleman and lady were seen
upon the track. The locomotive squealed and
they jumped across on the other track but
horror! Just ahead was another train, irom
Ramapo, on this track, and the next moment
would hurl tbem into eternity. They had tio
room on th outsidesof either track from the
embankment and not knowing which train
would pass first, were almost paralized! . But
the next moment the gentleman seized the
lady who had nearly swooned placed her on
the narrow walk between the two traks em

the cowcatcher from hooking it and thus
awaited their fate. The twy trains passed

given by an Italian in his hundred and six

vitality, which cannot be increased, out may
be husbanded. With this stock he may "live
fast or alow, may live extensively or intensly,
may draw his little amount of life over a large

when this stock is exhausted he has no more.
. He who lives extensively, drinks pure water,
a voids all inflammatory diseases, exercises
sufficiently, Dut not too laboriously, indulges no

thus husbands his quantum of vitality, , will
live considerably longer, than he otherwise
would do, because he lives slow ; while he on

himself to inflammatory diseases or causes

The Intelligence of America. .?
We have been much pleased with an artic
le in the May number of Fraser, entitled '.'The
United States of America." it exhibits n
comprehensiveness of mind and a liberallity of
tone towards our country .rarely met with in
British periodicals. The writer, after speaking
of our common school system, says the system
has evidently borne abundant fruits already.
Tbe enterprise and prosperity of the Americas
are to be attributed not to their natural re
sources, (Mexico is richer and more : fruitful
than the United States) but the general en
ligbtenment -: I . JL-iUit-.;Jj -,:ia"
The oldest manufacturers ofcotton in the
world are the -Hindoos; labor. with them is
cheaper than it is in any 0therpar't of the
world; yet the British take. the .cotto'n that
grows at the doors of their factories, carry it
13.000 miles, manufacture it in England,
where labor is so expensive, take it back 13,-
000 miles, and undersell the native manufac
turer. ., Labor is dearer in America than in any
other part of the world, jand yet the British
dread and fear their competition more' than
any other nation.' Tbe reason of all this is ob
vious. ,A11 the advantages which- the Hindoo
possesses are far more' than counterbalanced
by his. intelectual inferiority to the "British;
while the latter dread the American with rea
son, because he is, intellectually at least, their
equal, and, considering the general intelligence
and eood conduct of "the hands he employs,
their superior. To what cause, except that of
a deciddd superiority m Captains and crews,
can the British attribute the fact that the
Americans have deprived them of "so large a
portion of the whale fishery, as In measure to
have monopolized it ? ; American clocks which
the British now see in almost every hall and
cottage, ought to set ..them thinking. ' They
may be sure of this, the commerce of the world
will fall into the hands of those who are most
deserving of it If political and philanthropic
considerations should fail to show them the
necessity of educating their people, commer
cial considerations will one day remind then of
what they ought to have done. : ' ;

AN ANECDOTE FOR PARENTS AND FOR CHILDREN.
- Little Mary once struck her brother during
my absence from the house. The stick in her
hand had a sharp knot,"; which went clear
through his cheek,-making an ngly gash.
Tbe blood flowed in a stream ; the boy scream
ed piteously,and Mary was exceedingly alarm
ed. She had no animosity against her little
playmate; and when . her mother who was
called to the room by his screams, came in,
her .little daughter had thrown her ' arms
around his neck, and was joining her cries to
his, while the red blood poured full in her face.
When the mother had made inquiries, she
took the boy away to dress the wound, and
the girl went up stairs without a word and
crept under the bed. There she sat and sob
bed for several hours. . Her mother, discoverr
ing were she had gone, said not a word to
her, believing that it was best to leave her for
the present alone. Iter own heart was much
pained to hear her dear's grief, but she was
willing to let her suffer awhile, in hopes that
it might be made a lasting lesson to her. - :
I came in a little while before nitfht and
learned how matters stood. It was a season
to me of great interest and responsibility.
Upon my own action here might depend the
future conduct of - this child.'-Her violent
temper had been often cheeked by punishment
and she had been frequently enough told of its
evil consequences. ; Now it had led her to great
crime, and it not at once restrained, my little
daughter might grow up very; wicked and"
miserable. . " v-. - - - : r - - .4 .,
I considered a while how . I ' should act
and having humbly asked guidance of the
Father of all I took my seat in the room where
the affair bad happened, and took the knotty
stick in my hand. Then I called out in a kind
voice: "Sister come in here to pa. " She was
always an obedient girl, and she instantly crept
out and came down to me. ; IN ever shall 1 for
get the expression of her countenance as she
looked in my face. She had wept until . her
eyes were greatly innamed, but they were dry
and in ber lace was a look of the most pro
found humility and grief that I ever1 saw.
She walked slowly to my side and bowed her
head on my knees. I said: "My daughter,
some naughty person has hurt, your brother
very much. His cheek is cut open and there
will always be a scar there, as long as he lives.
Will my daughter, tell me who did it? I
heard a little sob, and then she: whispered
"It was - me.": continued : "If the f stick
had -struck his eye, he would have been blind.'
She commenced weeping. I said: "If it had
his temple, it might have killed -him." .'She
gave a low scream, and said; "Oh pa!" I con
tinued: "Yes, the blow you struck would have
killed your brother if some one bad not turned
it aside. . There was some one - in the room
who saw how angry my daughter was. ", Do
you know who it was 1" : - She looked up in
my face with a look of almost happiness, . and
said : "It was God, pa." , . ; E; -! ; .;iv-
She wept now more bitterly than before. I
took her band and led ber to the room where
her brother lay asleep. . His nice was : bound
up and it was very pale. -7' -i ' . . ' ...
.1 asked her very softly i Is little -..brother
yet alive ?" She started as if smitten with a
horrible though and uttered and ejaculation of

eyes about and seeing Mary bathed in tears,

In 1848, the cholera reached the eastern
limit of Europe, and appeared in Paris, 111

United States need not be mentioned. r
In 1831-2, the deaths by cholera wef s great

Paris March 26th, 1832, and was most f-tal
there in April, while in England its gTeates!

the mortality was awful in June. v
' The immediate cause appears unknown.'
It has been attributed to moist atmosphere and
fogs impregnated with some poisonous gases'
to cholera fungi in the intestines to ozona
to teluric actions in the earth which poison
the atmosphere to changes in currents of
electricity yon the . earth's surface. But tbe
circumstances in the condition of tbe people,

i V- 1 '.- A Bit oi a Story. . '
Many years ago,"when the state of Georgia
was thinly inhabited and the Indians occupied
a large portion of. her territory, undisturbed
by tbe white man, a" son of the Emerald Isle,
weary and hungry, about mid-day, presented
himself at the door of a wealthy farmer anct
asked for work. ; The Irishman was entirely
out of money, and Unless he gave him a bit of
a job he would hot be able to make a 'daceat
living." ; The farmor told him he had nothing;
particularly for him to do, but that if be re
ally Wanted work", he might be able to hunt
him a job.' '""Let's see,' said the farmer, I have
a large stock of'jioultryan'd plenty of com,
and I will get you to take care of them'; but
mind you see that every one gets enough, and
and that no one gets more than his share ; this
you must attend to. twice a day, morning and
evening. '" Pat strictly pledged his word that
he would strictly carry out bis orders. The
necessary arrangements having been made, as
regarded wages, board, ic, Pat was duly in
stalled in his new vocalion. "
. Pat performed his duty well, and the poul
try under his good management were kept in
rthe best of order. , For some time, howeveii
Pal's discerning: eye . perceived that an old
drake was getting more than his share of corn ;
this could not. be allowed, for be was strictly
charged to see if every one got enongh, but
no one was to get more than his share, How
Pat had no idea of disobeying the commando

One evening. as. usual, -while. Fat was dis
tributing" corn to the fowls, he commenced so
liloquizing in the following manner : 'Arrah, be

Sure enough, Pat tolled the old drake close up
to him. 'An' its welcome ye are; blast yer
ugly picture,' whin I'm done wid ye, to pick
up more than yer share.' With that Pat pufc
led out his knife and trimmed the drake's bifl
off sharp and slim, like a chicken's, and then
he exultingly threw him down, saying: 'Now
