No Ear for Music.
A correspondent of tho Now York
Tribune, giving nn account of tho
closing oxcrciscs at West Point, ro
tates Iho following:
This morniriir, a few minutes
before Iho President startod for
ferry, Gonoral Underwood callod
upon General Sliorrr.ao to pay
respects and bid nun good-byo.
Taking Grant off to that drum
match, nro yoUj Underwood?"
" Yes, General, and I am
sorry you ennnot join us"
" U ell, it is a kind of disappoint,
mcnt, you know, becauso I tun ap
preciate thoso things; but the Pres
ident! blessyoursuiil, ho'll be bored
to death. And, worso than all tliut
be hus no ear for music. Why,
you ki.ow that Grunt couldn't

A distinguished gentleman named

"The man that bath not mu.ic in bimuir,

The motioDiof binpirit are dull m night,
And bis aflactioos dark Krohut:

Anna, but wo bavo seen many
pretty young croature like you
who couldn't look at a ring without

John C, Bbickinkidoi. A Mid
nesotA pspcr says that John C.
Breckinridge, on his way to Supe
rior was obliged to tarn back on
account of bad roads, and that, on
lust Thursday, he fonnd himself on
board a train which was conveying
an excursion party of tbo First Xliu-
ncssotallogimont. The paper Bays :
" General Rreckinridgo descended
from tho platform os the regiment
was forming, exchanging common
pi aro salutations with a few ac
quaintarces, and then turned to
look at the veterans. They nnlartod
their old flag, and the band struck
up tho Inspiring strains of " Hail
Cilnmbia." Tho ex-Confederate
Chieftain listened a mome nt to the
glorious music, wn'.ched tho banner
ns its folds spread out to tho breer.c,
then reverently raised his hut from
his head, waved it towards the stars
snd stripes, arid exclaimed : " That
is tho old flag, after all. Thank God
for It!'" ,
Jt-ir M. Legouve, of tho French
Insdtulo, who, alter writing tho
" Moral History of Womn,'' ha
taken to dixcussing tho "Fathers"
snd " Children," makes himHcJf ro
sponsiblo for this story of tho alar
ming intelligence of a lilllo girl.
Ho assures us Unit, whin ho t n "e
threatened tho little damsel that " if
sho didn't behave propcrl v he would

responded : " Well, that don't

he asked. "Because," replied the
precocious littlo philosopher, "I'icrc

Tho Philadelphia Press, h

Tu this sentiment the Ago, of that
cit, responds that "againrt God,
this Government of ours has been
administered in the interest of
thieves, jobbers and rascals of all
descriptions, and will continuo to

Tub Climax Mowkr aso Heates. A
correspondent of tho Richmond (Va.)
Whijr writes as follows:
y.n. Editor : The great State trial of
Reaper and Mowers for tho oil liomin-
ion, which was held lut week on the
James river bdow Richmond, has pro
ved n groat success.
.Seldom hus the machine h'unineAK
been more largely repreenteil. Twen
ty Mowers and Seventeen IleApers were
entered for the content, snd they made
a fine display of rare mechanical skill
and excellent work on the field; con
sequently your readers have the greater
reason to rejoice over the success of
their own favorite the "Climax."
Its novel appearance drew theattcn
tion of tho its excellent
cies excited general ailinirntion, while
the faculty and skill with whieh it per
formed its part of the contest, rendered
it the favorite even among the vast
gathering of Virginians.
I mice. 1 it seeinoJ to attract more at
tontion and admiration than any, and
I might almost say, all others on the
field. It drew No. 1 in the allotment
for tUe content, and csme out first and
foremost among those tried at the same
ti mo with it, cutting its acre and
ro 's in 49 minutes.
It has won for itself an enviuUe
in its firnt introduction among
the hospitable, generous farmers
dealers of the State, and we tiespeak
it a career of success hcre'ofore
among furming implements.
The machine was sold for cash on
ticld, and many more might have been
could they bavo been hud. I noticed
among tho competitors for No. 1 which
the "Climax" drew, the Woods,
Clipper, the Hubbard, tho Kirby,
Buckeye and othcis.
