CARLDxw.--Who can-help loving them.
Children, God bless them, are the only
beings. for whom we have no "imperfect
sympathies." We love them threugh and
through. There is nothing conventional in
the hearty laugh of child. Its smile Is un
susceptible to artifice. We.like mischievous
children, and for thisreason, they are apt
to make old folks;" while "good children"
generally die early. They die early not be
cause they are food-children, but becaus
their quiet habits make them strangers to

VAMPIRE fgls.-Among the products of
the count around Para are vampire bats,
which are so dangerous that the natives are
obltdi'44to guard carefully against their in
trusion into their--dweings. A letter says
that a party of Americans recently had an
-unpleasant experience with them. They
were on an excursion up the Amazon, and at
night one of them was bled so badly by'
Vampire as to awake in a state of exhaustion,
with a face like a corpse. .Te Otof
hammock and the floor beneath it were satu
fated with blood, the flow, of which was
checked with great difficulty. It is this-dif
ticulty of staunching the blood which makes
the vampire so dreaded, the quantity which
the creature requires to satisfy his appetite
being coinparatively trifling.- Some persons
seem to be especially liable to their attacks,
while others can sleep in a room infested by
them nightly with impunity. They only
make their attacks in darkness, and a light
kept burning in-a sleeping.roun~'s an effect
ANTIQUITY OF TIHE Iasii IIAu'.-Long
before the lyre was known in Rome or
Greece, the Gael of Ireland had attained a
'high degree of perfection in the form and
managemnentof the Irish harp. The Irish
harper made use of two kinds ofinstrumentae
the cruit and clairseareh. The latter is sup
posed to have been employed in producing
martial strains, and used in banquet-halls;
the former thrilled from its chords the sof
ter breathings of love and sorrow. The pa
gan Gael would listen to no instruction of
Druid and Ollav (priest and professor) that:
was not wedded to verse; and even when
the Christian dispensation had supplanted'
Druidism, they continued-to be in equal re
pute. In rank the minstrels were co-equals
of the nobles, and at the festive boards to
them were consigned seats of the highest
honor; extensive land estates were settled.
upon them ; many of them Las late as the
seventeenth century occupied stately cas
tles. The legal records of that period show
that the annuald rental of one of this class
was equal to £5000 of our present
money. Their persons and properties were
held inviolable by all classes; the erie or
compensation, levied under the brehon law
for the killing of a chief professor was next

SEEIN ( TIlE SUN AT MIDNoIGT.--In July,
lt'15, lion. J. H. Camnpbell, United States
Minister to Norway, with a party of Anmer
ican gentlemen, went far enough north to
see the sun at midnight. It was in (i) de
greCes north latitude, and they ascended a
cliff one thousand feet high above hC Arctic
sea. The scene is thus describedd
" It was late, but still sunlight. The Arc
tic ocean stretched away in silent vastness
at our feet; the sound of the waves scarcely
reached our airy lookout; away in the north
the huge old sun swnnglow along the hori

Damc.-Alife-time might be spent in inves
tigatingthe mysterie hidden-n a bee-hive,
and still half the secrete would be aundis
covered. The formation of the cell has lon
been a celebrated problemforthe mathema
tielan, whilst the e which the honey
undergoes offer at an equal interest to
the chemist. Eve one knows what honey
fresh from the' mb is like. It is a clear
ow u thout atrace of solid sugar
in it. Ug straining, however, it gradully
assnm crystalineppearnce-it andies
as tiesaying is, agd ultimately becoanes a
solid lump of sugar. It has not been sns
tejl that this change was due to a pho
tographic action that the same agent which
alters the molecular arrangement of the
iodine of silver on the excited collodian
plate, and determines the formation of cam
phor and iodine crystals in a bottle, causes
the syrup honey to assum a crystaline form.
This, however, is the case. M.Scheibler has
enclosed hoey in atoppred flnlks, some of
which he has kept in perfect darkness, while
others have been exposed to the light. - The
invariablexesults have been that thesunned
portion rapidly crystalized, while that kept
in the dark has remained prfectly liquid.
We now see wiy bees work in perfectark
ness, and why they are so careful to obecure
the glass windows which are sometimes
placed in their hives. The existence of their
young depends on theliquidity of saccharine
food presented to them, and if light were
allowed access tohe syrup it would gradu
ally acquire a more or less solid consistency.

that one half of the .world don't know how

A great degree of skepticism, says a Lon
don paper, has'ebeen-entertained in regard
to the mode of supplying briade or raw
meat to the guests of the fashionable parties
at Gondar, the capital atAbjesinia. When
the company have taken their seats-at the
table, a cow or bull is brought to the door,
and his feet strongly tied after which the
cooks proceed to select the most delicate
morselsi Before killing the animal, all the
flesh on the buttocks is cut off in solid
square pieces, without bones or much effu
sion of blood. Two or three servants are
then employed,-who, as fast as they can pro
cure brinde, lay it upon cakes of teff placed
like dishes down the table, without cloth or
anything else beneath them. By this time
all the guests have knives in their hands,
mud the men prefer the large crooked ones,
which i-itime ofwar they put toeall sorts of
Suses. The company are so ranged that one
gentleman sits between two ladies; aid the
forner, with 1his longb knife, begins by
cutting a thin piece, which would be thought
a good steak among us, while the motion of
the fibre is yet perfectly distinct.
In Abyssinia, no man of any fashion feeds
himself, ot touches his own meat. The wo_
men take the flesh -d :t t -e-thwi
like strings about the thickness -of one's
little finger, then croswise into square
pieces momewhat smaller than dice. This
