Another Revolution Proposed.
BOME OF THlE THOUSANI) EVILS FLESH IS
Thackeray, in one of the delightful little
essays he was wont to scatter so profusely
through his stories, points out the enor
mous power of little things. The novelist
was specially illustrating their force in the
boausehold, as factors in making the happi
aness or unhappiness of life. Men rise to
the dignity of great calamities or great
sorrows, and, with a certain large mastery
of their natures, bow with submission and
patience. But the minor, teasing things of
ilfe, the small antagonisms, the petty
irritations, the distorbances that arise from
causes too insignificant to acknowledge-it
is these experiences that fret the brain and
nerves, as dropping water wears away the
marble, and render so many conditions of
life almost intolerable.
There has been a great deal of force and
enthusiasm expended in the name of
liberty. Revolutions have risen, martyrs
have fallen, tyrants have been overceme,
society has been convulsed, all to secure a
political boon which we have assumed to
be indispensable to our personal dignity,
our happiness, and our welfare. And yet
how little government, even in despotic
countries, touches the individual person
ally! Men not aspiring to political careers
have pursued the even tenor of their labors,
rarely knowing by actual experience
whether they were ruled by a king or a
parliament; whether the voice of the whole
or the authority of an individual presided
over affairs. And yet we know how
the world-has been repeatedly convolsed
by the struggles of people to assert what is
but little more than an abstract principle,
while all the time their real felicities have
been dependent upon a hundred minor
things, which they have left unheeded or
submitted to with patience. We have had
religions revolutions and political revolu
tions, but have never organised a revolu
tion to reform many things in domestic and
every-day life that have really made up the
distorbing conditions of our !ives.
Whether tea should or should not be
taxed, possibly involved a very high prin
ciple, hut wlmat was it to the question, con
sidered as to our practical comfort, whether
our neighbor shall or shall not empty his
ash-barrel T What was it to the question
now before us, whether we shall be per
mitted to buy real tea, or only ironfilingsY
But let as assome that taxation in tea, and
all other acts of unlawful authority, involve
all the important issues they are believed
to do these high principles are at least
settled; our liberty is established, with the
stars and stripes floating from our liberty
poles; so let us, having no other king to
overthrod, censider some of those social
tyrannies and minor evils that daily affect
our personal comfort and peace of mind,
and which a popular uprising ought to ex
It is presumably the privilege of the free
and independent citizen of this great re
public to walk the streets of the city where
ee abides, or even the city where he is a
guest, without fear of man. The law can
not interfere with his rightful pursuits,
and the law is bound to protect him in his
rightful pursuits. This would seem to be
the crowning glory of liberty. But the law
fails to protect him from a hundred
nuisances that render the pursuit of his
rightful purposes a very great vexation.
Why, for instance, must ubiquitous ashmen
be permitted to gather their refuse at all
bours of tihe day, and at their pleasure
cover his well-brushed coat with the flying
contents of their recklessly-emptied bar
relst Let us have a revolution that will
compel ash and garbage gathering to be
done at night.
But, when the ashmen neglect to dust
bis clothes in this fashion, the street
sweepers are toleraly sure to perform the
operation for him. The street-sweepers
are popularly supposed to make use of the
watering-cart before beginning their tasks,
but usually the preliminary sprinkling is a
tradition, and the clouds of dust that are
blown into our parlors, lodged in oar
lungs, ard arrested by our linen and broad
cloth, bear witness to our mouch saffering
from the flagrant disregard of our rights.
The method and the processes employed
for the sweeping of our streets are exasper
ating enough to put every citizen into hos
tile attitude against the powers that be.
Let as have a revolution that will compel
street-sweeping to be done at proper
hours, under proper restrictions, and by
methods that have in view the rights and
comforts of the people.
Sometimes there is rain. In winter there
is frequently snow. Two well-known
facts, but we state them for reasons. Now,
whether we have rain or snow, we are ex
posed to a hundred annoyances from a
chronic disregard of our privileges as citi
seins of a free republic. One man permits
his water-spout to go unrepaired, and it
deluges every unsuspecting passer-by.
Another permits the accumulated snow to
remain on his sidewalk, which, in a thaw,
: accommodates us with wet feet, and when
frozen dislodges us from our perpendicular.
The streets often remain for days nearly
impassable after a snow, even while we
have an expensive machinery under tite
city government for cleansiog and keeping
oar thoroughfares in order. We want a
revolution that will compel both citisens
snd officials to regard the rights and welfare
et the community in this particular.
Shall we go on and enumerate the many
minor matters which affect our comfort so
.sentlally, and yet which are so common
ly disregarded I Do we not all know
about the sidewalks lumbered with deal
ers' goods ? about the neighbor whose un
fastened window-shutter, in a high wind,
keeps us awake all nght I about the
vehicle that comes whirling swiftly around
the corner, bespattertig our coat with
mad, and even damaging the integrity of
oar limbs? about the fellows who smoke
on car-platforms, and send their nauseous
exhalations into our langs on the pro
menadet about those who expectorate
without reserve on the sidewalk ? about
the rudeness of the crowds on the terry
bosts and at the theatres? about ten
thousand irritating experiencea-the num
ber Is scarcely too large-that every one
has to undergo in consequence of public or
Srivate heedlessness I We canoot quite
devote all oar space to this topic, and a ,
full list of these evils would require it, a
while we have not said a word about the ,
*little tiinges" that torui-t us in the
desehord; so let ihe reader recall all that
o undergoes from minor veratious, no
tiog the real supremacy of lonslgnioant
matters in lit., and join with as in de
manding a revolution for their reform.
The time is entirely ripe for such a de
monstration. We have settled the mat
ters of kings and bishops and parliaments
5 and dictators, and so we are not so busy
that we cannot give our time and service
to a general social upheaval-to the over
I throw of incapacity, the deposition of In
r f diffetenoe, the punishment of negleet, the
Sarrest of recklessness, and the banishment
Sof all those selfish habits that prove so
Sdestreuctive to the peace and comfort of
Sothers in every day affairs. Let as have a
general revolution for the purpose of re

Besides praying, it is desirable to have
recourse to other lawful and useful means,
in order to promote the welfare of the
Church, and the safety of the Supreme
Head, and to secure spiritual advantages
for ourselves. You can do so by establish
ing branches of the Catholic Union in your
respective parishes, and assisting that
usneeful organization in promoting the reli
gious objects for which it has been called
into existence. If we unite and co-operate
with each other, we shall be able to do much
good, and as the objects proposed by the
Union are all praiseworthy, and all in fall
conformity with the teaching of the Catho
lic Church, Catholics, who are really such
in principle and practice, will do a merito
rious work if they enrol themselves in the
Union. Of course, these who are only
Catholics in name, who do not ful81fil the
duties of good Catholics, or who are not
obedient children of the Church, are not
invited or expected to join in a work emi
I shall merely add that the parochial
branches of the Union, under the direction
of the clergy, can do much good by estab
lishing societies for the promotion of tem
perance, and by inducing their members to
sanctify themselves by attending to all
religious duties, and especially by tre
quenting the Sacrament of Penance and of
the Blessed Encharist. Temperance
societies thus founded on the solid basis of
religion, will contribute very much to
check the growth of drunkenness, which is
the source of innumerable evils in Ireland.
The branch unions may also be made useo
ful in founding circulating libraries where
they do not exist, or in improving and en
larging them where they have been already

Although many anooient writers allude to
appearances in the sky which, there is no
doubt, were identieal with the aurora, we
have not any very accurate descriptions i
the pbenomena having been regarded from
a superstitions rather than a solentific point
of view. The first of these displays of
which we have a careful and scientiic
accounst, Is one that occurred A. D. 1560;
but the particulars were not published till
ninety years afterwards, when they ap
peared in a book called "A Description of
Meteors." In 1621 the name of Aurora
Borealis was given to this phenomenon, by
Gassendi, the French philosopher, on the
occasion of a remarkable display visible
over a great part of Europe. None seem
to have been observed after this till the
year 1707; but during the last century it
has been by no means uncommon.
It occurs generally in the spring or
autumn, particularly after a dry year. In
the Arctic regions, however, it is the usual
accompaniment of a clear winter's night,
and is familiar to the inhabitants even of
the Shetland Isles. Lights of a similar
character have been observed towards the
South Pole. Mr. Forrester, in a voyage
with Captain Cook, had an opportunity of
observing the Aurora Australia, as it has
been termed, and thus describes its ap
pearance: " It consisted of long columns
of a clear white light, shootiag up from the
horizon to the eastward almost to the
zenith, and gradually spreading over the
whole southern part of the sky. These
columns were sometimes bent sideways at
their opper extremities, and though in
most respects similar to the northern lights
of our hemisphere, yet differed from them
in being always of a whitish color, wbhreas
ours assume various tints, especially those
of a fiery and purple hue."
It is, however, in the northern hemis
phere that there havebeen mostopportuni
ties of taking minute observations of this
phenomenon, and it is from these that we
are able to form some idea of the natural
operations to which it owes its existence.
The flashes of light which constitute the
aurora are now generally allowed to be
within the region of the terrestrial atmos
phere; though they were at one time con
sidered to be far beyond it, as it was
thought that they could not otherwise be
visible at such a height from the horizon,
over such an extended area. It would
appear, however, that the aurora covers a
larger extent of sky than an observer
would suppose. All is invisible to him
except a certain are with its flaming and
streaming off-shoote. Its visibility has,
perhaps, some analogy to that of the rain
bow, which, as is well known, appears to
two observers to be of a different height,
their positions requiring the light to be re
feoted from different parts of the sky to
make the angles of incidence and reflection
equal in the case of each. There are
circumstances attendingtlhe aaroral pheno
mena which may be accepted as proofs of
their electric nature. It is supposed that
the lights seen are flashes of electricity
passing through the higher strata of the at
mosphere, which are, of course, highly
rarefied; and an experiment whereby a
stream of electricity is passed through a
glass tube from which the air has been
exhausted strengthens this view, appear
ances similar to those of the aurora having
The position of the are is observed to
bear a remarkable relation to the magnetic
pole; it generally lies east and west, hav
ing its vertex on the magnetic meridian,
but it appears at all times to have the
magnetic pole for its centre. The earth
corrents of electricity, which often inter
fere with the working of electric telegraphs,
are most frequent at the time of a display
of the aurora; sometimes causing an entire
stoppage in the working of the wires un
less the electric circuit can, by using double
wires, be rendered independent of the
earth. The magnetic compass is also affec
ted during the display of an aurora, and
often in places where the latter is invisible.
Sir John Franklin, who made some minute
observations In the Arctic regions upon the
variations of the needle, which are often
so alight as to require microscopic ex
amination, stated that the motions
were not sudden; but that after an
aurors the needle would travel slowly
in a certain direction, and as slowly
recover its position after several hours. He
also remarked that when the arc was not at
right angles to the magnetic meridian, but
inclined to east or west, the needle deviated
towards that end of the are which was
nearer to the magnetic pole; after devia
tion, it would be assisted in recovering its
position if an aurora occurred in a direction
opposite to the former. He observed that
when the are seemed to be exactly at right
angles to the meridian, the needle was gen
erally inclined to the west. The prevalence
of pink, violet, and blue in the colors of the
lights, seems to confirm the probability
that they result from a discharge of
electricity ; and the noise affirmed by some
to have been heard at the time of an aurora
display, seems to have resembled somewhat
the crackling sound heard when sparks
are taken from a Leyden jar, or the con
ductor of an electric machine. The hearers
have compared it to the sound made by rob
bing one piece of silk on another, and to the
discharge of firerorks. Some, however,
including Captains Parry ano Franklin,
have affirmed that they never heard any
sound at such times which they could not
trace to ordinary terrestrial sources.
Although, of course, diffcult to ascertain
with certainty, it would seem that these
aurors, the borealis and australis, occur
simultaneously at their respective poles,
and this would point to an electric actien
common to both. It has been surmised
that on such ocsasions a discharge of elec
tricity is taking place from the poles to the
equator, and the apparent motion of the
asroral are in that direction seems to con
firm this view. There are, however, rea
aons for thinking that, on thecontrary, the
discharge is from the equator to the poles,
and that the direction of the motion is only
apparent. However this may be, we may
presome that in one or other of these places
an amount of electricity accumulates from
time to time, and that it is periodically
discharged into the other through the me
dium of the upper atmosphere; or that the
atmosphere and the earth form together a
galvanoi circle, which is put into action at
certain intervals. Bet it is renarkable
that though the earth cnrrents would be
expected to run north and south, they are
frequently observed to move in a direction
from east to west. Like many other phen
omena, however, this has yet to be fully
inv,-stigated by ohs,-rvation and experi
ulcr. The meteor.olegy of the earth will,
perhaps, be found to be more under the
ionfluence of this electrio action than is at
present supposed. -it no doubt performs
some important function, and is destined
to be as perpetual as the revolaution of the
globe itself. Discoveries respecting it will
in all probability assist to confirm the
theory that heat, motion, and electricIty
are essentially one, that they are the
origin of many of the phenomena of the
AuERICn BsifArrr.-There are two
points, says Mackay, in which it is seldom
equalled, never excelled-the classic chas
teness and delicacy of the features, and the
smallness and exquisite symmetry of the ex
tremetles. In the latter respect, particu
larly, the American ladies are specially
fortunate. I have seldom seen one, deli
cately broaght up, who had not a fine
hand. The feet are also generally very
small 'and exquisitely moulded, partica
larly those of a Maryland girl; who, well
aware of their attractiveness, has a thou
sand little coquettish ways of her own of
temptingly exhibiting them. That in
which the American women are most de
ficient in is a roundness of figure. But it
is a mistake to suppose that well-rounded
forms are not to be found in America.
Whilst this is the characteristic of English
beauty, it is not so prominent in America.
In New England, in the mountainous dis
tricts of Pennsylvania and Maryland, and
in the central valley of Virginia, the fe
male form is, generally speaking, as well
rounded and developed as it is here;
whilst a New England complexion is in
nine cases out of ten a match fgr an Eng
glish one. This, however, cannot be said
of the American women as a class. They
are, in a majority of cases, over delicate
and languid; a defect chiefly superinduced
by their want of exercise. An English
girl will go through as much exercise of a
forenoon without dreaming of fatigue, as
an American will in a day, and be over
come by the exertion. It is also true that
American is more evanescent than English
beauty, particularly in the south, where it
seems to fade ere it has well bloomed. But
it is much more lasting in the north and
north-east, a remark which will apply to
the whole north of the Potomac, and east
of the lakes, and I have known instances
of Philadelphia beauty as lovely and en
during as any that our own hardy climate
A JEST MADE TRuE.-The Swoiss Tmes
tells the following story : A foreign creditor
went to Liege, France, recently, to look
after some of his debtors, and meeting one
of them in the street, he observed that he
was looking for him, as he thought it high
time that the account between them should
be settled. "I should be only too glad,"
replied M. I., " but you cannot draw blood
from a stone." " Then," said the creditor,
" I shall have recourse to extreme meas
ures." " Now I think of it," cried X., " I
shall soon receive an important legacy. I
will, therefore, give you a bill at three
months for the whole amount, and this I
promise to meet." "Very well; where
shall I find you?" inquired the creditor.
" At No. 29, Rne Robermob." The bill
having become due a clerk was sent by the
creditor to the address given. As No. 29
proved to be the cemetery, the messenger
suspected a joke, but, nevertheless, in
quired of the porter whether M. X. was
within ? " Certainly," replied the man
" he lhas been here since yesterday." " I
have come about a bill." " A bill upon X i
I tell you he was buried yesterday." X.
had only intended to play an unworthy
trick upon his creditor, but he actually
died a little before the expiration of the
three months, and therefore ococupied the
mournful abode he had named in jest.
OUR WEIGHTS.-Somebody who has been
" studying our weights " reports that, upon
the average, boys at birth weigh a little
more, and girls a little less than six pounds
and a half. For the first twelve years the
two sexes-continue nearly equal in weight,
but beyond that time males acquire a de
cided preponderance. Thus, young men of
20 average 143 pounds each, while young
women of 20 average 120 pounds. Men
reach their heaviesat bulk at about 86, when
their average is about 152 pounds; but
women slowly increase in weight until 50,
when their average is about 129 pounds.
Taking men and women together, their
weight at fall growth, averages about
twenty times as heavy as they were on the
first day of their existence. Men range
from 108 to 220 pounds (the Tibchborne
claimant weighs about 360 pounds) and
women 88 to 207 pounds. The actual
weight of human nature, taking the aver
age of all ages and conditiones-nobles,
clergy, tinkers, tailors, maidens, boys,
girls, and babies, all included-is very
nearly one hubondred younds. These figures
are given in avoirdupois weight; but the
advocates of the superiority of women
might make a nice point by introducing the
rule that women be weighed by troy
weight-like other jewels-and men by
avoirdopois. The figures would then
stand-young men of twenty, 143 pounds
each; young women of 20, 160 pounds, and
