A city editor of a daily jmirrml ought
to be a wonderful geniiB, because he is ex
pected to be equul to all emergnncies on
the call of the public. He .is too often in
vited to write flowing marriage notices,
miring personals and pathetic death noties
about people he never heard of, and hence
cared nothing about. Kut more is often
lemanded. He is asked to write amatory
and in inemoriam poetry, Think of this
prostitution of genius which seek to climb
Mount ParnaSfUP, invited to write poetical
effusions at so much a line advertising
.Some of the states are just a trifle too
strict in regard to certain legal require
ments. For instance, according to Missis
sippi's new code, w hen a lellow happens to
stub his toe on a public thoroughfare he is
compelled to hold in and scout off half a
mile, far from the madding crowd, into a
lonely back alley before be can relieve his
seething brain by a little emphatic pro
fanityf It is a psychological aud physio
logical fact that when a man stubs his toe
his first nar.!na impulses to swear. Nine
tenths of humanity honor this impulse and
do swear. Mississippi throttles the antique
custom by promptly jailingevery individual
who publicly swears from aDy cause what
ever. 1 his is diabolically stringent. Red
hot anarchy is preferable. In the course
of human events it often times becomes nec
essary for everyone barring always min
isters and journalists to swear at sonic-
thing. The big-wigs must anchor the ship
of state, and reflect upon the natural im
pulsiveness and fallibility of mankind, lest
they be overturned and buried by the legal
cvclone of their own manufacture.
A COUNTERFEITER CAUGHT.
For some time a man of medium build,
red t ice, sharp features and red moustache
has been passing counterfeit money in
Pulaski and Jackson counties, with an im
prudence that created considerable talk.
As a pretense he carried with him a satchel
of notions which he offered for sale to
fanners, and in making change almost in
variably passed his counterfeit coins. Kut
while this is so the authorities of those coun
ties seem to have made no effort to
bring the fellow to justice.
Yesterday he boarded a train for
Cairo. This news was telegraphed to
Mound's Junction and when the tram ar
rived at that station, it was flagged aud a
negro, who had been instructed to watch
mm anu secure nis arrest in tins city, was
put aboard. The negro carried out his in
structions and upon arriving here
followed the criminal about the town
keeping him constantly in sight m the
hope that he would sooner or later meet
an ofticer to whom he intended to point
him out. He tracked the fellow into the
negro house of prostitution ou Eighth
streetnear Ohio leveo and then stationed
himself on the corner in the hope that an
officer would come along. He had
waited but a few minutes when Con
stables Sheehan aud Hogan came within
ear-shot and to these he told his talc. The
officers kept a watch on tlw building until
the fellow came out into the street, and
then arrested him. What they found on
his person we did not learn, but with a view
of obtaining further particulars we called
on the prisoner at the jail.
We found him at first very uncommuni
cative in fact he seemed to be possessed
of the belief that it was his privilege to
interview us, and ascertain all that we
knew of the affiir before answering any of
our questions. He argued that it could do
no good to give the public his side of the
affair nud stated that all he was
confined for was for "knocking
around u little too much." 15ut upon assur
ing him that we were well acquainted with
the cause which had lead to his confluc
ment and that the story we had heard
about him was very damaging, and would
so lie given to the public unless we could
obtain the correct particulars from him, he
relented, saying, "ask me all the questious
you want!" which we proceeded to do.
lie statod that his name was Henry
Fletcher; that his homo was in New
Albany, Ind; that ho was a peddler of
notions, and had during the past three or
four weeks paid frequent visits to Cairo.
Among the genuine money which ho had
about him, the officers had found sixty
five cents in silver which they pronounced
hs counterfeit. He did not know that he
had counterfeit money about him and was
.ignorant of where he had obtained it.
Uesides the fact that the money was found
on his person, thero was no other evidence
in existence that ho was engaged in tho
, After leaving him we learned from a
very reliablo source that plaster paris
moulds had been used in tho manufacture
of the coin, and that the contents of tho
lellow's satchel would probably convict him
of other crimes besides counterfeiting.
Hut at present we are not at liberty to give
further particulars. All the facts will
probably be developed to-day.

The Migration of Birds.
Familiar as this migration of birds is
to us, there is, oerhaps, no question in
zoology more obscure. The long flights
they take, and tho unerring certainty
with which they wing their way be
tween the most distant places, arriving
and departing nt 1 1 same period year
after vear, are p lints in the history of
birds of passage as mysterious as they
tire interesting. Wo know thai most
migran's fly after cundown. though
many of lliein Mdevt a moonlight night
to eros the Mediterranean. But that
their meteorological instinct is not un
erring is proved by the fad that thou
sands an- every year drowned in their
flight over the Atlantic and other
oceans. Northern Africa ntid Western
Asia are selected as winter quarters by
most of them, and they may he often
noticed on their way thither to hang
over towns at night, puzzled, in spite
of their experience, -by the shifting
lights of the streets and houses. The
swallow or the nightingale mav .some
times be delayed by unexpected circum
stances, let it is rarely that they ar
rive or depart many days sooner or
later, one year with another. Prof.
Newton considered that were sea-fowl
satellites revolving around the earth
their arrival could hardly be more
surely calculated by an astronomer.
Foul weather or fair, heat or cold, the
puffins repair to some of their stations
punctually on a given day, as if their
movements were regulated by clock
work. The swiftness of flight which
characterizes most birds enables them
to cover a vast space in a brief time.
The common black swift can fly 270
miles an hour, a speed which, if it could
be maintained for less than half a day,
would carry the bird from its winter to
its summer quarters. The largo purplo
swift of America is capable of even
greater feats ou the wing. The chim
ney swallow is slower DO miles per
hour being about the limits of its pow
er; but tho passenger pigeon oi tho
United States can accomplish a journey
of l.OoO miles between sunrise and sun
set. It is also true, sis the ingenious
Ilerr Palmen has attempted to show,
that migrants during their long flights
may be directed by an experience part
ly inherited and partly acquired by tho
individual bird. They often follow tho
coast lines of continents, and invariably
take on their passage over tho Mediter
ranean, one of three routes. But this
theory will not explain how they pilot
themselves across broad oceans, and is
invalidated by the fact, familiar to every
ornithologist, that tho old and young;
birds do not journey in conipauy. In
variably, the young broods travel to
gether;' then come, after nn interval,
the parents; and finally tho rear is
brought up by the weakly, infirm,
molting, aud broken-winged. This is
the rule in autumn. Tho return jour
ney is accomplished in the reverse or
der. Tho distance traveled seoms,
moreover, to have no relation to tho
size of the traveler. The Swedish blue
throat performs its material functions
among the Laps, and enjoys ita winter
holiday among tho negroes ot tho Sou
dan, while the tiny, ruby-throated hum
mi ng-bird proceeds annually from
Mexico to Newfoundland and back'
Hysteria is by no means confined to
women, for one of the worst attacks
which I have witnessed occurred in a
man. This gentleman one day found
he had lost his all, and on returning1
homo, he became the victim of laughing
and crying, until sheer exhaustion
brought an end to tho attack. This
was quite involuntary. But it might
be remarked that even in hysteria such
a thing as fashions prevails, showing that
a certain power of restraint may be
used. When I was a boy, hysteria was
the fashion; and if during conversation
any remark was mado to touch a lady's
sensibilities, she would clinch her hands,
make a wry face, her eyelids would
undergo a rapid vibration, she would
givo a sob or two, and sink from hor
chair1 Tho cure was accomplished by
throwing cold water over her face; and
if this encroached on her neck or wetted
her dress, tho cure was very sudden
and complete. During church service,
it was the usual practice to have a
young lady carried out ; but I think as
rule she belonged to an Inferior class,
whose kind of work during tho week
did not allow them to play dressmaking
tricks with themselves on a Sunday; for
if I remember rightly tho euro was
effected in their case by the call for a
penknife. This was used to loosen tho
body armor, when a loud explosion
took place, followed by a deep sigh and
a speedy recovery of'the patient. So
fashiona'blo was fainting or hysterics in
church, that I have u lively remem
brance of a young lady who had a
weekly attack", and was often carried
out by a gentleman in the next pew.
As these two were afterward married,
I npprehended that this was ono mode
of courtship. 1 am only too thankful to
think, for the peace of other people,
that this method of forcing matrimony
has goue out.
