FARM AD FIRESIDE.
Do our RtocVmen and farmers appre
ciate the difference between a good steer
or cow and a poor one ? Do they know
how much more a jrood large draft horse
brings than a little, inferior ituimal, bred
from a small worthless trotter, bo called ;
or a good well-bred hog or sheep more
than a "prairie" rooter or a Mexican
mnmrrpl? Tf thpv do not. iust let them
make inquiries of those who rai?e and sell
the improved breed. We know the
trrwi Rtrfc brines 100 per cent more than
the scrub, and at their enhanced value
they are more profitable to feed or to
graze than the poorer kinds. It is
a waste of capital for a farmer to breed
anvthinir but rood stock, what ver
areument may be advanced in favor o
the Texan cow upon the plains. It is as
easy to raise a 1,500 pound tteer at four
years old, if good bulls and cows are used
to breed from, as to raise a nine hun
dred pound Texan, and the price
obtained for the full breed one is marly
twice as much as the scrub fetches.
As to horses, it is almost injxtsiible
to sell a little, trifling hors?, only for a
cow pony, but the large draft horse
always sells at good figures. A Berk
shire or Poland China hog will make
nearly double the pounds of meat from
a given amount of food as the poor, ill
bred hog, and the meat is better. A
Merino ewe will produce from eight to
ten pounds of good merchantable wool;
the Mexican and specimens brought from
Missouri and Arkansas to the stite will
not show over three pounds of hair and
wool that sell only for carpet wools.
Why our farmers will waste their
money, feed and grass on such kinda of
stock is a mystery, when they can do so
much better ; but we are young and
have time to improve, and judging from
the number of enterprising stock men
who are purchasing good bulls and
rains, the day is not far distant when
Colorado will do far better than the is
doing now. We hope to see before an
other year the Ftock of hogs in our state
quadrupled, and before five years enough
pork made in our state to supply the
home demand. Colorado Tlx.
The 1'lcM of a Mingle Ear.
A farmer in Ohio has recently made an
experiment which suggests an idea, lie
had procured an ear of very fine yellow
corn, and wishing to procure seed from
it, planted it in god soil, having first
ascertained that there were about five
hundred grains on the cob. The corn
produced from these five htindred kern
els measured nearly nine bushels, or
about nine hundred ears from one. The
need so obtained was as good as the speci
mens planted. If farmers in this state
would strive to obtain improved seed
and improved seed does not necessarily
mean new varieties they would make
money by the operation. The truth is
that little or no attention is paid to sav
ing seed. When wheat is to be sown the
farmer crocs to the sttre and buys his seed
wheat, not knowing where it comes from,
ignorant, perhaps, that one tat k of good
wheat may be mixed with two sacks of
bad, aid ignorant or careless of where it
comes from. 15y i uch carlessuess the
field is often speded with thistles or
weeds, which require years to eradicate.
We have a case in mind of a little wheat
growing valley which ten years ago was
innocent of weeds or thistles. But since
that time one of the farmers bought his
Heed wheat without taking proper pre
cautions in regard to where it was raised,
and the followinir season riA fnn nrl hia
Held with a very little wheat and a greatTbe overhanging waiLiaiung upon mem,
many California thistles. The next year
the wind had scattered the seeds broad
cast over the valley, and to day it is al
most use 'ess to sow grain of any kind in
that valley,. for the thistles choke it out
It would be an excellent idea to go
throuph the wheat fields in the fall and
pick out a lew choice heads, well filled
out. and thresh them out by rubbing in
the hand. Tut the seed in water and
skim ofTtheJfloating grains which are not
well filled eut. .S.ive the balance care
fully and in the spring sow or plant in
some good mellow ground, and not so
thick but that the soil around each stalk
can be stirred with the hoe, and where it
can be watered if necessary. A quart of
seed planted in this way would produce
a large amount of grain euperior to a
large majority if the seed wheat in the
country. In this way the crop can be
renewed, and not only high-priced grain,
but more of it, will be the result.

It is only about thirty years since
lager-beer came into use in the United
States. The first brewery was established
in Philadelphia in 1S16. T we . years
later F. and M. Scliaefer introduced the
business in New York. It is now one of
the most important industries in the
city. There are thirty-seven lager-beer
breweries in the city and suburbs, and
they turn out over a million barrels in
the course ot a year. The beer made by
George Ehret is considejed the best; at
all events, there is more demand for it
than for any other. Ehret sold 13.000
barrels in 1876; Ruppert ranks next as
an extensive manufacturer, bis product
the same year being 74,(1(0 barrels. The
Shaefers, who introduced the business,
sold 45,000 barrels. It is hardly neces
sary to say that all the lager-brewers are
Germans. Home have become very rich,
and only a few have failed in the busi
ness. The capital invested in it is very
large. Ehret s capital is about $1,00",
000. When he started, eleven years ago,
he had to borrow money to carry him
over the first few months. Ruppert has
over $70,'00 in his breweries, horses,
wagons, etc. He starttd in 18t7. An
other brewer who started in the same
year retired on a fortune a few years ago,
and hia partner continues the business
on a capital of $400,000. Altogether the j
money invested in the brewing or lager
beer in and around New York is probably
not lesa than $8,000,000.
The men employed in the business earn
from $63 to $75 per month, and have all
the beer they want to drink. Their
hours are long, averaging fifteen out ol
the twenty four. An employe who does
not drink more than twenty glasses a day
is considered economical. Many go up
to fifty or sixty, and there are some who
boast of a capacity for one hundred.
Ruppert'a men drank eight hundred
barrels last year at the expense of the
firm. Nearly all the beer manufactured
now-a-days is doctored that is, drugs
are used to color it and tone it up. The
business of supplying drugs to the beer
men has bcome quite large. The brew
ers admit the use of drne. but maintain
that the beer Lj improved by them rather
than injured. The different kinds of
beer are so well known that any steady
imbiber can tell at a hip whose beer he is
drinking whether it is Ehret's, Rup
nert's. Doeleer's. Claussen's, or some
other. Some of the brewers use Croton
water, paying an immense tax for it
yearly, and others get water from arte
sian wells. One firm has a well of this
kind that yields over 200,000 gallons
daily. Hartford limes.

At places where trains ran high up,
near the more precipitous portion of the
bluff, remnants were found of stone
walls, inclosing spaces of from five to
twelve feet in length in the cave-like
crevices running along the seems of the
rocks. They were pretty well demolished
the stone's undressed and imbedded in
mud and mortar. Jn many places little
niches or crevices in rock had been
walled up in cupboard-like places of
about the size of a bushel basket. Some
miles still deeper into the canon brought
about fresh and even more startling a is
closures, and one little bouse in particu
lar, at the extremity of a lodge fully
eight hundred, if not more, feet from
the base of the bluff, caused ' the
greatest amazement at the temerity of
the builders. The discovery of this one,
so far above anything heretofore seen,
immediately inspired an ambition to
scale the height and explore it. The first
fifty feet of the ascent were over a long,
steep slope of debris overgrown with
cedar; then came alternate perpendicu
lars and slopes. Dirtctly below the
house was a nearly perpendicular ascent
of fully one hundred ieet, which,
for a while, wai a puzzle, but finally
it was surmounted by finding cracks
and crevices into which fingers and
toes could be inserted. From this little
ledcres were occasionally found, and,
by stepping shoulder above shoulder
and grasping tints or Drusnes, inese
ledsres. one alter the other, were sur
mounted, and, in time, a slope, smooth
and steep, was reached. In this slope
there had been cut a series ol steps, now
weathered awav into a series of undulat
ing hummocks, by which it was easy to
ascend, and without them almost an ut
ter impossibility. The perpendiculars
of the house were found, to re well re
garded and the angles carefully squared.
A lout the corners and windows consid-
siderable care and judgment were evident
in the overlappine of the joints so that
all were firmly held together. AH the
interstices between the stones were nicely
clinked in with small chips of the same
material. Most peculiar, however, in
the dressing of the walls of the interior,
was the thin layer of firm adobe cement,
colored to a deep maroon red, with a din
gy white band, eight inches in breadth,
running around floor, sides and ceiling.
Ruins of a half dozen other houses were
found on lower ledges, some crushed by
and ethers had lost their foothold and
tumbled down the prec'pice. Striking
the canon of the St Elmo, previous ex
plorations having been in the Mancos,
the ruins of a great massive structure of
some kind were found, its exteiior dimen
sions being about one hundred feet
square, a portion only of the wall upon
the north rn face remaining in its origi
nal position. The debris of the ruin
formed a monstrous mouod from twelve
to twenty feet in height, overgrown with
brush, but showing clearly its rectangu
iar form, adjusted approximately to the
four points of the compass. Inside this
structure was a circle abeut sixty feet in
diameter, deeply depressed in the center.
The space between the walls and the cir
cle appeared to have been filled in solidly
with a sort of rubble masonry, and the
stones ol the outer wall were found to
be dressed to uniform size and finish

Iron-Clnds and Torpedoes.
It is pretty certain now that the con
test between monster guns and armor
plates is drawing near its end, and that
victory will declare lor the guns. While
the limit of size for cannon has not yet
been reached that of the thickness and
consequent weight of armor for seagoing
war vessels certainly has. In the course
of time it will be discovered that the tre
mendous shock transmitted to a ship by
by the firing ot her enormous gun or
guns will compel a new system of con
struction adapted to withstand it. (Con
sidering this and the immense nenetra
tive power of projectiles over the resist
ance oflered by armor and the new models
necessary for the carriage of great guns
the iron-clads of to-day will sson be as
obsolete as the Roman galley propelled
by oars. With this prospect in the near
future the nations like the United States
that now have no iron-clad fleets must ba
congratulated, for their money will be ex
pended, when necessary, on the floating
gun-carriages that will supersede the war
ships ot to-day. We do not hesitate to
predict that naval warfare must in time
be conducted practically according to
the same tactics as now govern field
artillery in action. The gun-ships must
be detached, and what may be termed
caisson, or ammunition-ships, employed
to supply them.
But auother element of destruction in
war threatens the whole iron-clad system
and must revolutionize naval construc
tion. The torpedo is now the recognized
weapon for the attack and defense of
harbors and blockading squadrons. These
invisible mines dot the channels or shoot
beneath the surface toward the doomed
vessel, guided with unerring accuracy
from the shore or torpedo-ship. The
effect of such terrible engines, when fired
under the side of a great iron-clad, is to
insure ber destruction beyond the shadow
of a doubt. Ar. Y. Herald.
Trouble in Frank Leslie's Tarty.
The trip of Frank Leslie's party of ar
tists and journalists to this coast to
search for material for their pens and
brushes may yet be fruitful of something
besides monotonous sketching and note
taking. It will be remembered that the
veteran journalist and his party left this
city about two weeks ago to journey to
the Yosemite valley. Information came
to this city that when the party arrived
at Big Tree Station on Sunday two of
Mr. Leslie's' young men became involved
in a quarrel over the smiles of a lady who
accompanied the party, and finally ended
the argument by one smiting the other's
cheek. The same afternoon a challenge
was sent by the insulted to bis assailant,
which was promptly accepted, the weap
ons chosen being pistols. The two young
men then adjourned to a convenient grove
and whiled away an hour or so by firing
at each other, to the great consternation
and danger of the crowd of spectators.
A stray shot finally struck one of the
duelists in the arm, when it was an
nounced that he had ample satisfaction,
and the reckless bombardment was dis
continued. Wfcat disposition was made
ol the wounded man has not transpired,
and none of the party have as yet been

parallel that is of peculiar interest at the
There are at ine present tune two
great nations in the world, which started
from different points, bat seem to tend
toward the same end. l allude to tne
Russians and the Americans. Both of
them have grown up unnoticed ; and,
whilst the attention of mankind was
directed elsewhere, they have suddenly
placed themselves in the iront rank:
among the nations, and the world learned
their existence and their greatness at
almost the same time.
All other nations seem to have reached
their natural limits, and they have only
to maintain their power ; but these are
still in the act of growth. All the
others have stopped, or continue to
advance with extreme difficulty; these
alone are proceeding with ease and
celerity along a path to which no limit
can be perceived. The Americans
struggle against the obstacles which
nature opposes to him ; the adversaries
ot the Russians are men. Their former
combats in the wilderness and savage
life ; the latter civilization with all its
arms. The conquests ot the Americans
are, therefore, gamed by the plowshare ;
those of the Russians by the sword. The'
Anglo American relies upon peiBonal
interest to accompiisn nis ena, ana gives
free scope to the unguided strength and
common sense of the people ; the Rus
sian centers all the authority ot society
in a single arm. The principle instru
mentof the former is lreedom; of the
latter, servitude. Their starting-point
is different and their courses are not the
same, yet each ot them seems marked
out by the will of Heaven to sway the
destinies ot hall the globe.
It will be profitable at the present
time to analyze De Tocqueville's gene
ralizations, and follow the parallel in its
details ; and first, with regard to growth
Under Ivan the Terrible, in 153 Russia
comprised 37,200 geographical square
mi lea. Russia now comprises one
seventh of the area of the earth, or 8
450.000 square miles, divided as fellows
Russia in En rope, 2,261,657 ; Russia in
Asia, 6,170,882. Since De Tocqueville
wrote his work, Russia has added to her
territory between two and three million
square miles. The area ot the United
Suites, including Alaska, is reported by
the census of 1870 at 3,603,844 square
miles. When De Tocqueville wrote his
book, it was about 2,000,000 square
miles. The population of Kusia m
1873 was about 19,000,000. When De
Tocqueville wrote, it was 48,000,000;
now it is 86.000,000 European Russia
having 78,000,000, and Asiatic Russia
about 8,000,000. In 1790 the popula
tion of the United States was 3,yzv,32$
heu De Tocouevule- wrote, it was
14,000,000 ; now it is 45,000,000. These
figures eloquently proclaim the growth
of these two nations, and there is yet no
limit to it, either in theextent of area
to be travereed, or by the opposition of
other powers. Ihe United Mates will
continue to spread north and south
Russia will spread to the east until she
reaches the wall of the Himalayas her
Since the days when Tocqueville
wrote, both countries have devel&ped a
colossal scheme of railroads. We have
spanned the continent from the Atlantic
to the x'acihe, and have covered the
states with a network of roads. Russia
has connected tbe Baltic and Black seas.
She has transported an army from the
heart of the country to the Caucasus by
railroad. She can carry her Cossacks
from the Vola to the very frontiers ol
Austria and Germany. In the days of
the Crimean war she had none of these
roads, and by their absence alone were
the allies able to defeat her. Since De
Tocqueville's days, both countries have
covered their rivers with steamers, their
harbors with ships, their vadeys with
canals, their railroad routes with tele
graph?. They have vastly increased
their manufactures, developed their in
dust fits, augmented their production,
and improved their civilization. Under
the name of freedom, a great nation has
developed in one land ; under the name
of depotism, a great nation has peace
fully developed in the other. Rush a
emancipated 20,000,000 serfs without a
war; we emancipated nearly, 5,000,000
with a war. We have had our recon
struction troubles and settled them.
Rusbia has had hers, and is now slowly,
but surely, working toward a const ltu
tional form of government, beginning in
her communes. She has adopted our
jury system and our system of judica
ture. che has commenced to take our
free school system in part ; we have al
, most universally adopted it. Thjy have
covered their vast steppes with civil;za
tion beyond the Ural mountains; we
have covered our vast prairies and
plains beyond the Rocky mountains.
Such facts as these strengthen the
parallel that De Tocqueville drew when
this country was comparatively in its
infancy, and place Russia and the United
States in the position ot the two leading
nations in the world, with their possi
bilitier only beginning to be developed,
with no preceptible limits to their
career. The next two powers are Ger
many and Great Britain, but their
boundaries are already .marked out.
France has reached its natural limits,
Italy its old boundaries. Austria is in
more danger of falling to pieces than of
increasing, and rpain is stagnant and
decaying. The destinies of tbe globe
are, as De Tocqueville says, yet to be
settled by Russia and ths United States.

Gen. Kin Shan arrived before Manas
on the 2d of September, 1876, and five
days later opened an artillery hre on
the northeast angle ot the wan. i will
not recapitulate the details of the siege ;
suffice it that breach after breach was
made, and assault after assault was re
pelled, during the period ot two months
for which it lasted. At length, during
the first days of November, sorties were
attempted by the garrison, and some
prisoners who were taken stated that,
the provisions of the garrison being ex
hausted, their leader nad peat them out
to see how matters stood, with a view to
seizing any opportunity of getting away.
After examinations the prisoners were
beheaded. At length, at midnight on
tbe 4th of November, the Mohammedan
general Hai-yen himself came out and
begged to be permitted to surrender. I
quote the language of the memorial
itself as to what followed :
' Kin Shun hereupon commanded him
to deliver up the horses and arms of the
garrison, and to hand over in bonds, the
leaders of the rebels, after which
he was to draw up lists of
the remainder of their number, who were
thereupon to be called upon to answer to
their names, and be severely dealt with
according to circumstances. Hai-yen
agreed to do this. At daybreak on the
6th of November a body ot 2,000 or 3,000
of the garrison sallied out from the west I
gate, the centre of the column consisting I
ot aged persons, women and children, I
who were guarded on all sides by determ
ined fighting men, with arms in their
hands ; and Kin-hun, knowing them to
be treacherously disposed, caused- his
troops to stand to their arms. The Hu
nan troops on the north of the city were
drawn up in battle array, as were also the
divisions on tbe south front, while a
separate cavalry division war posted at
the commanding points, in order to pre
vent escape. Su-Hio-kung was at the
same time ordered to go forward and call
upon the advancing body to throw down
their arms, whereupon their lives should
still be spared ; but the so-styied general
of the rebels. Ho Luh, by name, sud
denly fired off a pistol and set his troops
on to make a rush at the trenches. So
Hio-Kung instantly ordered his men to
charge, and no Luh was taken and be-
headed in front ot the line of battle. The
rebel leaders and the desperate fighting
men at their back, abandoning their
women ana children, maae a poia rusn
forward, but they were enveloped by
the various divisions . of the Hunan
troops and the fire under Kin Shun's
own command, and the greater number
of them were put to the sword, une oi
the so-styled generals of the rebels, see
ing that all nope was lost, shot himself
with a pistol, and every man of the
scattered host was captured and beheaded
by one or other or the cavalry divi
sions. "The infantry meanwhile had laid
hands upon and executed all the rebels
remaining within the city, sparing the
women and children and aged persons,
who were exempted from this act of
retribution. Hai-yen and other leaders
were captured alive, and after being ex

were to be conducted mostly at meat.

Tommy had been cross all day. He
had pulled Bobbie's hair, and taken his
pea-nuts fr?m him. He sat down on
Susie's lovely doll and flattened her
nose, and he had put the kitten on top
of the book-caser He had even been
saucy and hateful to his mamma, when
she asked if her little boy felt quite well,
or if his long visit to the faquarium yes
terday had tired him. Instead of an
swering pleasantly, 1 Dmmy had hunched
up his shoulders, 6hoved out his elbows,
and snapped out fiercely :
" No ; I ain't tired, and I ain't cross
Every one was glad when bed-time
came, and Master Tommy was taken up
" I do declare, Master Tommy, you'll
turn into a nasty, snappy turtle, or a
crab, some of these nights, when you're
so cross," said the nurse.
" Tooh !" said Tommy, " I won't."
" Well something will happen, you'll
Bee if it doesn't. I've read of just such
things coming to boys in books," said
nurse, as she tucked him into bed.
Nurse thought he had become quiet
all at once, and, as she bade him "good
night," she wondered if he was up to
more mischief. But he was already
snoring as she reached the door.
As soon as she had gone down stairs
Tommy got out of bed, and felt, under
the bureau for the piece of mince-pie he
had hidden there. He had taken it from
the pantry-shell that evening a good
big quarter of a pie. It was rather dusty,
but tasted good, and Tommy sat up in
bed, and ate it all in ten bites. Then he
curled down among the blankets, and
wished he was a crab.
" I'd crawl right down and bite nurse,
now, " he thought. " I wonder how it
would frel to be a turtle, or a crab or a
" A very fine specimen indeed, " said a
giuff, strange voice.
Tommy looked around. Where was
he? Where was his bed, and his room
with blue paper on the walls ?
" Oh, my ! what is the matter?" cried
Tommy. lie was sitting upon a bit of
sea-weed, in a great glass case full of
water, and a red-nosed man in spectacles
was looking at him.
"A fine specimen of a fresh-water ur
chin," said the red-nosed man.
" I ain't a urchin," cried Tommy, in
dignantly. ' See him open his mouth I How ugly
be is!" exclaimed a small boy behind
the red-nosed m&n.
Tommy looked around for something
to throw "at him, but right at his elbow
sat a huge hermit crab, who stretched
out four claws and said:
"Shake hands), cousin! Glad to see
" I'm not your cousin,
drawing himself up.
" Oho 1 He says he is not my cousin!"
squeaked the hermit crab so loudly that
all the skates came to see what was the
"You're a horrid ugly thing I"
screamed Tommy. ' I saw you yster:
day pinching a poor little crab, and pok
ing your old claws into his shell. I'm
not your cousin."
"Now, just hear thatl" said the her
mit crab with a wickod smile. Here
is an urchin who pinches his little
brother, pulls his hair, and takes his
pea-nuts away, and yet he declares he is
not my cousin I NonseLse! Ut course
you are. Came along."
He was just stretching out his claws
to drag Tommy off the bit of sea-weed,
when two little sea-urchins came rolling
along and said :
Why, here comos Tommy !
" Go 'way !" exclaimed Tommy. " I
never was such an ugly, prickly tuing
like a chestnut bur. " " Ugly, prickly
thing, indeed!" cried the sea urchins.
"Didn't you pain your poor mamma
with your naughty, prickly temper
you ugly little iresh-water urcnini '
And both the sea-urchins gave him great
pokes with their sharp, spiny sides, and
then rolled away, laughing at his pain.
They had no soonergone than up came
a whole family of them little alligators,
and with them a whole family of fat lit
tle seals, giggling, bouncing up and down
and eating mince-pie.
"Tommy, how d ye do T Jlow d ye do,
Tommy!" said they all.
They looked so mischievous, and so big
that Tommy began to cry.
"Cry, babv, cry ! Haven't any pie I"
sang all the fat little seals and thin little
alligators, jumping at him and frying to
bite hw toes, till Tommy was frightened
half to death.
Just as he made sure they were going
to eat him, something wonderful happen
ed. A beautiful sea horse, with a silver j
bridle, came floating down, led by the i
loveliest little mermaid that ever was
seen. And as sne came close to lommy,
"J?oor little Tommy! Come with
me. Mount my little lriend here, and
we will take you away from these tor
So Tommy got upon the sea-horse's
back, and he just fitted there nicely,
which surprised him, till he remem
bered that since he had become a
fresh-water urchin he bad grown Tery
They pranced away from the seals and
alligators, and all the skates smiled pleas
antly as they passed. Soon they came
to the mermaid s houses a large pink
conch shell, with sea-weed climbing over
it, and a long avenue, marked by rows of
pink sea-anemones bowed, and waved
their fringes to the mermaid, and "wel
comed her home.
" I have a poor little urchin who has .
been naughty, and has been punished ;
but now he will be good and happy,"
eaid the mermaid.
Then they went into the conch-shell,
and around and around, and up the
piral stairs, that were pinked at every
tep. till at last the mermaid put Tommy
into a little bed like a rose-pink sunset,
and kissed him good-night.
' lou won t want to get up and look
for pie again, will you ?" Eaid she.
" I iust guess not ! " answered Tommy,
and then he fell asleep, while she sang to
him songs of the sea.
When be woke up the sunshine was
streaming ever him.
" I did think of giving him some more
paragonc ma am, nurse was saying.
But alter a little while he stopped cry
ing, so I did not get up."
' Why! 1 must have dreamed it 2
said Tommv to himself. Just then he
looked down and saw some pie-crust
crumbs in his bed. " I don't know
though," he thought. "Maybe it was
true. Maybe I really was a urchin."

Queen Victoria has lately had a small
pension bestowed upon Mr. 'Thomas Ed
waids. a pious cobbler ofi?cotland, who.
in spile of poverty and incessant toil, has
made for himsolf an honest name among
the naturalists of the day. No one ever
dreamed fes-s about such a distinction
than he did, and yet, after the lapse of
years, the well-deserved compliment has
been paid him.
This worthy man is the son of a hand
loom weaver, and was born on Christ

the weaver's boy manifested a lively

When Thomas Edwaids was tent to
work in a factory, two miles from Aber
deen (where bis father then lived), his
walks back and forth were made the oc
casions tor scouring of the woods and
fields. He was obliged to be up by four
o'clock in the morning, and did not re
turn home before nine at night. But
the young naturalist forgot fatigue, and
cold and scanty food, in the pleasure
which he found in collecting specimens
of birds and insects, and plants and
flowers. It was mere haphazard assort
ment, since he leariied to classify and ar
range them with wonderful accuracy.
When Thomas Ed wards grew up to man
hood, and married, he sat down quietly
to the drudgery of his cobbing stall,
and his earnings were so meager that be
could not afford to spend much daylight
in his favorite studies.
At the close of a long day's work he
would return home, and.havingequipped
himself with his insect boxes and bot
tles, his botanical book and his gun, set
off with his supper in his hand, to beghn
his observations. Bad weather never
kept him in the house, and, when rain
overtook him, ha would thrust himself,

There will shortly be offered for sale
at Lancaster, Lngland, an article of great
interest to the American nation. Mr.
Joseph Sly, of the King's Arms and
royal hotel, Lancaster, has for many
years devoted himself to tbe collection
of rare and valuable pieces of furniture
and antiquities of various kinds ; and
among his collections, which he will
offer for sale in May next, is one of the
three clocks invented by Dr. Benjamin
Franklin, of Philadelphia. This clock
strikes the hour, ana has only three
wheels ; and on many occasions Mr. Sly
received tempting offers to part with it.
The dial is aranged to mark the time on
the system of the land watches in years
gone by. On'the face is the inscription :
" Dr. Benjamin Franklin, Philadelphia,

invented by Dr. Franklin ; the others

The first steam engine was introduced
into France in 17S9. On account of the
revolution and the consequent check of
industrial enterprise, the manufacture
of steam engines by French workmen
did not assume much importance until
1821. The number of stationary had
increared in 1852 to 6,000, representing
75,009 horse power; in 1863 to 22,600,
representing 618,000 registered horse
power; and now they represent 1 ,500.000
registered, or 4,ouo,UUU actual horse
power, doing the work of 31,000,000 men
or nearly ten times the available me
chanical industrial population ef the
country. In 1788 the cost of manual
labor in manufactured pooducts was 60
per cent. Now their proportions are
reversed, the annual production being
about 12,000,000,000, francs. There is,
therefore, an annual saving of 6,000,000-
francs in consequence oi the use of steam
engines and improvement in machinery.
