SATAN GOETII A FISHING.
The devil cat by the river side
The stream of time, where you'll always
Casting his line in the rushing tide
And landing the fish on the bank behind him.
He sat at ease in a cosy nook,
And was filling his basket very fast ; -
While you might have seen that his deadly
Was differently baited for every cabt.
He caught 'em fast as a man could count;
Little or big, it was all the same.
One bait was a cheque for a round amount ;
A Congressman nabbed it and out he came.
He took a gem that as Saturn shone ;
It sunk in the witter without a sound,
And caught-a woman who long was known
As the best and purest for miles around.
Sometimes he "would laugh, and sometimes
For better luck no one could wish ;
And he seemed to know to a dead sure thing
The bait best suited every flh.
Quoth Satan . "Theflphing is rare and fine,"
And he took a drink somewhat enthused ;
And yet a parson swam round the line
Til at e'en the most tempting of baits relused.
He tried with his gold and his flashing gems,
Hung fame and fortune upon the line
Dressng gowns with embroidered hems,
But still, the dominie made no sign.
A woman's garter went on the hook ;
"I have him atlabt," quoth the devil brightening:
And Satan's sides with laughter shook.
As he lauded the preacher as quick as lightning.
Defending the Sex.
Claia JBelle, in her lost letter to tho
Cincinnati Enquirer, says "there seemfc
to be a vast differen6e, to men's eyes,
between the of an outer
dress and the of underclothing.
I can't "understand "whv, but
it is so. Nine men out of ten will rush
wildly to a winddw to see a woman in
flowing wiiite across the way and turn
u"way disappointed when they find that
the snowy garment is a -wrapper instead
of a chemise."
We rally to the defense of our sex.
We scorn Clara Belle or anyone who
believes the above statement.
An equally false and wicked notion
prevails relative to bald-headed men
who go to the ballet and sit next to the
musicians, "within seven feet of the
stage. The crufel charge that bald-headed
men sit on the" front row of seats at this
class of literary exercises from any
wrong 'motive, has done an incalculable
amount of harm. It has hurt our own
feelings many times and caused the
ready tear to unbidden start. It has
cast a gloom over our whole lives and
embittered the cup of our joy many
men are dealt with unjustly
in this matter. So far as we are
concerned we are free to say that we sit
on the front row so that we can hear the
soft low notes of the bass viol. We are
madly, passionately fond of the musical
throbs of the large fiddle, and shall we
be hooted and jeered on the public
streets for this cause? Shall we be
named mockiagly by the mob because
we yearn for the glad snort of the bass
tuba and the mellow notes of tho
triangle? We hope not.
Clara Belle is a little too harsh and
too anterior. She writes sarcastically
and does not regard the feelings of
tliose she'thus cruelly stabs.
We should never Bpeak disrespectfully
of the bald-headed. We do not know
how soon we may be bald-headed

Mid-Day Revelations of the New Comet.
The observations made on Wells'
comet at the Dudley Observatory during
its meridian passage - are exceedingly
valuable. The character of the nucleus
of great comets has long been a matter
of controversy. Last summer 'Prof.
Draper concluded, from observations on
the great comet of 186l, that the nucleus
was either a solid or a liquid. Long' ago
Prof. 'Pierce,' "of "Harvard, cbn&lifflM
from his observations that the nucleus
of a comet is a solid body of metallic
density. The observations m add1 at 'Albany
tend to support the theory of Prof.
Wells' comet at noonday on the 11th
showed a well-defined disc like a planet
or asteroid. The. Ufcst theory of the constitution
of the tails of comets is that
they are of electric origin, being the results
of excitation as the nucleus approaches
the sun. The nucleus is undoubtedly
opaque, being in reality 'an.
unfortunate world compelled by an accident
of birth to wander in the celestial
spaces in a manner that forbids the
development of animal life on its Surface.
The near approach of many conies,
among them Wells1, to the sun,
undoubtedly causes rapid disintegration.
One has been known to split in
pieces. Prof. Stone, of Cincinnati,
thought he saw the nucleus of the great
comet of last summer divide, and then
come together again.
Prof. Boss finds from his mid-day observations
with the transit instrument
that the orbit is very nearly a parabola,
and there is little prospect that the comet
will ever return to the sun. A dispatch
to Prof. Boss from Lord Crawford,
at DunEoht, Scotland, helps somewhat
to explain the failure of the comet
to lultill expectations as to brightness.
Spectroscopic examinations by Dr.
Lohse revealed a sharp brhjht line, coincident
with the sodium in the solar
spectrum, also strbng indications of other
bright lines. This, with the actual
observation of a disc sixteen hours after
perihelion passage, when the vapors
were hot aud transparent, indicates a
solid body. As soon as the comet began
to leave tho sun the vapors began
to condense so the disc was not again
visible. Prof. Boss thinks the presence
of sodium accounts for the failure to
throw off a tail of great length. Other
comets have shown the spectrum of
hydro-carbon, but this one is of a different
composition. Rochester (N. Y.)
A man should marry by all means ;
yet I am convinced the greater part ol
marriages are unhappy, and this is not
in opinion that I give as coming from
ivsolf ; it is that of a very excellent,
agreeable and sensible lady, who married
the man of her choice, and has not
encountered ostensibly any extraordinary
misfortune, as loss of health, riches,
children, etc. She told me this unreservedly,
and I never had any reason to
doubt her sincerity. Tor all this, I am
convinced a man can not be truly happy
without a wife. It is a strange state of
things we live in. A tendency so natural
as that of the union of the sexes ought
to lead only to the most harmonious results
; yet tho reverse is the fact. There
is certainly somethingfadically wrong in
tile 6onstitutionof the time's are
out of joint. It is strange, ' too, what
little real liberty of choice is exercised
by, those even who marry 'apcording to
what is thought their own inclinations,
