A Country not to be Envied.
With fteen millions ef inhabitants
in Spain, only three millions can read
or write a fact Which fully accounts
fof the restlessness and " fabaticisni of
;lie people. The fall of Spain dates
from the time when Philip tho Second
and Philip the Third expelled a million
of the floors who wero employed in the
cultivation of'the land.1 4 The Iuquisi-,
tion also bad its effect in making the
Spaniards somber,' suspicions and Jeal

Though Spain ia a land of mountains
it is also a land of great mineral wealthy
and so fertile that tit ..-yields, both the
fruit of tropics and the cereals of the
temperate sone' ' Its flora and fauna
are very similar to those of, Northern
Africa. It abounds in noble harbors,
also, but is doomed by its bad govern

A correspondent of a ;New York
journal calls publio attention to the
dangers of using gasoline aa an . illu

stauce gets its name from its extreme
volatility, and is produiod in the dis

recently, however, been regarded as a
waste product.' It is one of the light

its specifio gravity being lees than
that of ether, aud it is so volatile , that
an ounce or moro left uncovered in a

burning even on the surface of water,
and as it is almost 'as uncontrollable

Clifford, in'Bartholooiew County,, on
Friday night, the 27th ultimo, in which
a resident ' of that" place received""'
wound from the effects ofl'wfnch be''
has aince "died. The f,ets in the. case, f
aa near as we have been able to gather
them, are as follows: ' -
' Joel Clay, Esq.,' ft lawyer, of Coluni-
bus, Indiana bas been giving a? series
of lectures and. readings - at different
points in this county, and on: ,frjdy
bight appeared in a school house sear
Clifford. Mr. Clay commented his ad-J

ance wus manifested by the audience,
but M11. Clay procooded with hie. dis
course,' thinking that quiet would soon
be rcstoredj'bnt it con'tinrd to increase
until be was compelled to slop s.ndsit
down, and wait for order to bo rcntored.
He was interrupted in this
manner for; two -' or three

ponded to this suggestion,' when Mr.
Dougherty took the chair, and mani
fested some disposision to keep ..'order.
Mr. CJay now resumed his address, but
this time was disturbed more than
ever by boots and yells, and the throw
ing of pieces ofcandles and paper balls.
Finding that it was impossible for
liini to be beard, Mr. Clay took up bia
books and papers, and started Tor home.
He had proceeded some two - hundred
yard from the school-house, when he
heard tome person inquiring for him
some distance in his roar... Soon ."he
observed two men approaching him,
one ft little in advance of the other c
He turned and warned them not to
crowd him, but one of them came on
regardless of. his,warning, when.! Mr.

one, the ball taking effect in hie bow

Mr. Clay came to this city and 1 snr-4

brought to trial on Saturday evening,
and, after a thorough investigation,
was released. ' 1 Mr. Dougherty died on
Sunday from the effect of the wound,
since which time Mr. Clay bas been
placed nnder a bond of $2,500 for bis

Mr. Clay is a member of the Colum

What Mere Trifles Cost.
.The Rev.T. M. Sharpe, West Hobo-

Luxury need never plead with ber vo

enticements.. Civilized .man drinks
every year 30,000,000 bottles of genu
ine and 15,000,000 spuriousebftmpagne;
or nearly 8200,000,000 worth.,: Yet the
total expenses of Christian propagation
may be roughly estimated at not more
than that sum, if half as much. To

A good many years ago, a man stole
a cow from Morristown.N. J.,and drove
ber to PhiUdelpbia for sale. , She was
a "common cow enough, except that she
had lost all ber tail butabont six inches
The thief, fearing. by the shortnoss ot
her tail lie might' be traced,, bad pro
cured in soma way, probably from a
slanghtor 'bouse, anothsr cow's tail,
which be fastened so ingeniously to the
Short tail that it was not to be. known
that it .had not regularly grown there.
As soon as the Jerseyman misled bis
ow he set off for Philadelphia, think
ing she would ' probably be carried
there for sale; ' and ft happened that
when he came to the ferry he got into
the same boat that was conveying over
bis cow and the fellow that stole her.
As it was natural tbat he should have
his thoughts very much npon cowshe
soon began to look at this one with
great attention. ' She was indeed very
ranch like his cow, he thought. Her
marks agreed wonderfully,'' and she
bad exactly tho same expression of face;
b'lt then the expression of her tail was
so very different. It must be supposed
that the new owner of the cow felt
rather uncomfortable during this ex
amination,' for he soon saw that this
was tLe person whose property he had
stolen, and he was very uneasy lest he
should take hold of the tail' which be
looked at so continually.' Upon the
whole, he thought it best to direct bis
attention in aome way,-if ' possible,
and therefore stepped up to Lw and
sai'd; .... ,fp, :t '..
Neighbor, this itafino cow of mine;
won't you buy her? You seem to know
wliat a good cow is."
"Oh, dear mel",said the otheV.'I
have just had such a cow stolen from
roe." -" V; ' ' " '"
; "Well," said the thfcf, "I'm'sorry to
bear they've got to stealing cattle, but
I'll sell off; and you could net better
replace your loss than by buying this
cow; I will warrant she's as good .as
yours." v -. . .
wllM. II J it. T 1
: " "y, au vii o j erseyman, sue was
exactly like this cow, only that she bad
no tail to speak of; and if- this one had
not such a long tail, I'd swear it -was
my COW." . . .: U I'
. Everybody now began to took at the
cow's tail, but the thief stood nearer to
it than anybody, apd taking, hold of it
so aa just to cover the splicing with his
left band, and, with a jack knife in his
right hand pointing to the tail, be said;
"So if this cqw'a tail were only so long,
you'd swear she was yours?" ,
That I would," said the other, who
began to be very much confused at the
perfect resemblance to bia cow, except
ia this one particular, when, the thief,
with a sudden cut of the knife, took off
the tail just about an inch above ths
splicing, and, throwing "it '-overboard,
bloody as it was, turned to the other
and sald:: "Now swear nt's your cow."
'The bewildorraent of the poor man
was now complete? as ho had seen the
vail cut off, and saw the blood trickling
from it, be could of course, lay no claim
to the animal fr.om the shortness of her
tail, indeed, it was proof positive that
this was not his cow, so the thief, going
over with bim, sold the cow-without
any furthe? fear f detection.?, v
