Borlsse says be saw a lobster attach
an oyster, who '-persisted in closing his
shell as often as the lobster .attempted
to intrude within it .After many isil
Dres, the lobster took a small stooa and
placed it between the shells as soon as
they were separated, And then devoured
the fish. Mr.' Gardner, in his "Curiosi
ties of Natural History," states that he'
Once wafchedaT'crab enlarging ita bur
row on the sand ; and about every two,
minutes it came up to the surface with
quantity of sand in its left claw, and
by a suddenyjtirl ffirew it to the dis
tance of about six inches. Having a
few shells in his pocket, he endeavored
to throw one'bf them-inlo jthe-hole;
three of them fell near the hole, and
the fourth rolled into it. Five minutes
afterwards the, animal made its appear
ance, bringing witbv ft the shell, which
bad gone down, and, carrying it to the
distance ofa foot from its burrOw, there
deposited it. Seeing the others lying
near the mouth of the hole, it immedir
ately carried thetn ,ne by one, to the
place where the first had been depos
ited, -and-' then resumed "itsj original
labor. Gilbert White tells us' of an old
hunting mare which ran on the com-
mon. and which beinsr taken ill, came
down iqt Uir3lf g4f HI were, to im
plore the help of man, and died the fol
lowing night in the streets. A -writer
in Frazer relates of a hen, which had
hatched several broods of ducklings,
that from experience she lost all the'
aosiety usually Dome Dy inese ioster
mothers by the indomitable persever
ance with which the youDg palmipedes
take to the water a soon as, ' theyare
born, and quietly led to the brink of the
pond, calmly watching them as they

self on the sunny bank to wait uncon

spider which had seized a bee by the
back, and effectually prevented it , from
takioe flight; but the legs being at lib
erty, it dragged the spider along which
presently suspended it by a jinread
from its web, leaving it to dangle in
the air till it was dead, and tjien it was

sembled in one place on the cathedral;
and as the clock strikes, they take wing
and hover round bis window in small
circles, till ha appears and distributes a
few handfuls -of food. This, at all
events, indicates" the : fffcuHyof noting
time, and may placed on a parallel
with the story of the dog who went to
church regularly every Sunday at ! the
Drooer hour to meet1 his master. Ani-
mala ara nromnt at usinfr their eXDen

they have suffered pain or annoyance.

A dog having great antipathy to the
sound fit a Tiolin, always; soaghfrto get
the bow and conceal it Plutarch-tells
of an artful mule, which, when laden
with salt fell, into a stream, and Cod
ing its load thereby sensibly, lightened,
adopted the expedient afterwards, and
whenever it crossed a stream snppea
couse into the water with its pannier ;
and to cure it of the trick the panniers
were filled with sponge, under which,

The intelligence is most remarkable
when experience seems to prompt a
plan, of action, or where the" animal de
vises a connected scheme td effect'soine
desirable objctyas irrthe case of a cow,
which baring ' strsyed into, an open
granary, continued its visits by draw
ing the bolt with its horn.' ' The Arctic
wolves hunt together in companies and
if they meet an animal whieh they have
not the courage, to attack openly, they
form iob a semi-circle or crescent, and
rush down npoti ; jt,lill, the creature,
terrified by the numbers of its enemies,
hurries over a precipice and is dashed
to-nieces. -when thev. sear ch out the-
body and enjoy the . feast, v&aliday
mentions a mason-bee which had" built
its nest close to a window generally
fastened with a shutter, but which,
when -tb row w- hack,, lay so - elose to the
wall, that its vest was completely shut
in. To - prevent " this occurrence, it,
formed a little lump of clay, which hin
dered the shutter from fitting tight to
the wall,, and left room for, its own
ingress and egress. Jesse recounts the
circumstance of sorrie rats destroying
the bladder fastened, over the nose of
an oil-bottle, and making free with the
oil by dipping . their tails into it and
licking it off. Dr. Pelican saw some
rats 'engaged in the same manner round
the . bunghole of a cask of wine, into
which,'- if the -liole had ' teen' large
enough, they would doubtless have fal
len from intoxication. The same prin
ciple was carried still further, and with
an evident knowledge of the law which
prohibits the occupancy of the same
place by two bodies at one and the same
time, bv the dog which threw etones
into the well, and the fox which drop
ped .them into the neck of a pitcher, in
order to get at the water. Degrandpre
put a monkey to the proof by leaving
on a table an open bottle of aniseed
brandy, " from which the monkey ex
tracted with its .fingers as much as it
could manage to reach, and then poured
sand in the bottle till the liquor ran
over.- Cuvier tells ns of an orang-outang
unlocking a door by trying- a whole
bunch till it found the right key, and if
the lock was too high it fetched a stool
find mounted 0n it. L6 Valliant's monk
ey when tired, used to jump on the
backs "of his dogs for a ride; but one of
them objecting to this mode of treat
ment stood.still the moment the mon
key had taken its seat, and thus got rid
of the nuisance. This reminds . us of
the horses which are run without ri
ders rathe-Corso at Borne, and which
are harnessed with loaded spurs, which
goad them as they rus ; the older hors
es having experienced that their own
speed causes the spurs to play, have the
sagacity .to stop leaving the younger
and less experienced beasts to aecide
the race without them.' These instan
ces excited from a work which literally
brims over with facts of a kindred na
ture, abundantly testify that those crea
tures on which man has too often
looked with scorn, and on which he has
heaped indignity and; multiplied suffer
tngi have mental faculties, emotions,
and tsympathies,' which give them a
eJami upon our most tender regard, and
render them equally the subjects of
profitable study and the fit recipients
of human kindness. Hibberat (era-

' ffX, rA.r R-r-The Demoerafjc pipers
have made a discovery. They say that
the 'halting sign' of the G. A. R. is 'han

A Mixin' of the Babies.
Some time ago there was a dancing
rjartv given "up rnortn, most oi ine
ladies present had little babies, whose
noisy perversity required too much at
tention to permit the mothers to enjoy
the dance. - A number of gallant young
men volunteered to watch the youn
ones while the parents indulged in a
"break-down.". . No sooner had the
women left the babies in charge of the
mischievous devils, than they stripped
the infants, changed their clothes, giv-
in? tbe apparel of one to another. The
dance over it was time to go home, and
the mothers hurriedly took each a baby
in the dress of their own, and started
to their homes some ten or fifteen miles
off, and were far on their way before
day-light. But the day following there
was a tremendous row in the settle
ment; mothers discovered that a single
night had changed the sex of their ba
biesobservation disclosed physical
phenomena, and then commenced some
of the tallest female pedestriaoism ;li ving
miles apart, it required two days to un
mix the babies, and as many months
to restore the women to their natural
sweet dispositions. To this day it is
unsafe for any or the baby mixers to
venture into the territory.
The great want bf this age is men.
Men who are not for sale. Men who
are honesty, sound from center to cir
cumference, true to the heart's core.
Men who wilT condemn wrong in friend
or foe, in themselves as in others. Men
whose consciences are steady as the
needle to the pole. Men who will stand
for the right if the heavens totter and
the earth reels Men who can tell the
truth and look the world and the devil
right in the eye.r Men that neither
brao nor run. Men that neither flag
nor flinch. M-3n who can have courage
without whistling for it, and joy without
shouting to bring it Men. in whom
the current of life runs still, and deep
dnd strong. Men too large for sectarian
limits, and too strong for sectarian
bands. Men who do not strive, nor cry,
nor cause their voices to be heard in the
streets, but who will not fail nor be dis
couraged, till judgment be set in the
earth. Men who know their message
and tell it Men who know their duty
and do it Men who know their place
and fill it Men who know their own
business. Men who will not lie. Men
who are. not too lazy to work, nor too
proud to be poor. Men who are will
