Too Lotto a Name. Many (rood things oc
cur which are never known outside of the little
community in which they occur. Wo have just
heard of one that is certainly too good to be
lost. We will give it, but will not be repon
eible for buttons broken off by its perusal,
In a neighboring county lives a gentlcmnn
who, notwithstanding he is good looking ntid a
very clever man, and would doubtless make a
good husband if married has lived a little
beyond the years of rnnturi y without any fair
lady to bear his name in other words, ho is
an old bachelor. Well, in the village where
he resides, on a recent occasion, on a Sunday
night, it was announced in a company of gen
tlemen, of whom ourliero was ono, there would
be preaching that night. Hereupon it was
agreed that each gentleman should escort a lady
to church. Each one was appointed to escort a
lady, and our hero was told he must accom
pany a certain young lady. He replied that he
was not acquainted with the young lady herself,
but was acquainted with her father. He was
told that the lady's father would certainly be
at home, and introduce him. He consented,
and dressing in his best clothes, started to the
lady's house. On arriving there, ho found sev
eral ladies seated in the parlor, but the gentle
man was absent. Ho was in a fix, and now to
get out of it was the question. Making up bis
mind in a moment what to do, summoning all
his bachelor courage, 'which, by the way, is not
very great, he selected the youngest lady of the
group, and thus addressed her:
"Miss , lam very sorry your father is
not hero to introduce me. A number of gen
tlemen were appointed to take a lady to church,
and I was appointed to escort you. s your
father is not here to introduce me, I will have
to do it myself. I am Mr. , late of the
State of , but now a resident of this
place, attorney at law nnd solicitor in chance
ry and proctor in admiralty, will practice in
this and adjoining counties. All business in
trusted to me will bo promptly attended to.
Collections made throughout the State. 1 11m
at your service, Miss." Tho young lady, in a
style of the sweetest simplicity, declined bis
proposed kindness, saying she couldn't go to
church with a man who had such n long name.
We tiro glad to say our hero still lives, and is
ready to practice as aforesaid.
A knavish hack driver, at Chicago, having
to drive an old lady about a mile, to tho house
of her friend, persuaded her that it was four
miles, as he had to take n circuit to avoid a
broken bridge. Driving her about tho city for
an hour, he set her down at the house ot her
friend, who, being informed of the charge he
had made, got him to carry the luggage into a
dark room, locked him in, and kept him there
till ho had refunded $2.20, by slipping the cash
under the door.
King Victor Emanuel has sent a present to
Teresita, Garibaldi's daughter, who is now re
siding with her father at Cuprera. It is a dia
mond necklace, with earrings to match, and
was to havo been presented to her on New
Year's day, but that the stormy sea prevented
its being received in time.
Mr. Cobden, writing from Algiers on tho 28th
of December, says, "the weather here is a com
plete contrast to what you are experiencing.
On Christmas day, the English residents met
at church, and on coming away, every one re
marked, 'How warm it is 1 ' We have green
peas every day fordinucr, and ripe strawberries,
and beautiful roses and flowers in the gardens.
With good British steamers to Marseilles, we
ought to be only seventy-two hours from Lon
don. It is a wonderful change of climate with
iu so short a time and distance."
TnE Batteby a Failure. The Philadel
phia, l'l ess's correspondent at Charleston , says :
" Tho cotton battery is said to be a failure,
which, I presume, will account for tho no small
denying all knowledge of- it. When it was
nearly completed some one discovered that it
could not float. I saw this extraordinary work
of art, and can vouch for its existence ; and,
nlthough the Mercury's correspondent at Wash
ington seems to have been ignorant of its where
abouts, the Mercury's editor was thoroughly
posted, and was silent."
Illumikation ix New Orleans. The Com
mon Council of New Orleans havo passed a
recommendation to have all the builJings in
the city illuminated on tho night of tho Cth of
February, in houor of the independent Repub
lic of Louisiana.
PiiErAnATtoNH i-o n the Haik and Skin.
It is a fault, both of taste and judgment, with
many ladies, that they allow questions of Macas
bar, pomatum, rouge, etc., to run too busily in
their heads. There can he no universal quick
cner of curls or thickener of braids, because it
is not possible to make such an article that is,
ono that will absolutely supply the place of na
ture in those respects. To make trees grow in
different Boils, different composts are required.
Even rouge is many-colored. And it should be
further borne in mind that there is positive dan
ger in tampering with many of the nostrums
that are put forth especially those for whiten
ing the skin. There can be no infallible bleach
nil, without tho compound possessing chemical
properties so strong that prudence and safety
require that it should bo let alone. This remark
applies generally to most cosmetics professed to
he adapted for ull temperaments and complex
ions. In tho violent days of our grandmothers
of old, when they willingly suffered any amount
ol tight-lacing, head-powdering, nnd other cruel
ties, in the cause of fashion and beauty, Myra
consented to bo tied by her hands to the bed
post for hours together, nnd Cbloe submitted to
any amount of bleediug, in search of white
hands, but it is to be hoped that the ladies of
the present generation havo become wiser nnd
less barbarous. It is also to be remembered that
nil artificial fairness in a lady's nppearance has
n gha8tliuess and unreality infinitely more stri
king than tho blemishes combalted with ; and
general caro of the health, maintained as a duty,
not as a pretext for hypochondriac and self
treasuring finicality, will, in nine cases out of
ten, suffice for the preservation of female beauty,
far more unfailingly than vitriols, or fluids, or
oils. Vitriol should in no case bo used, or any
compound of which it forms an ingredient.
Now nnd then a fluid, or an oil of an innocent
character, maybe used, us serving a temporary
use.

A Yorkshireman having occasion to visit
France, was dumb-founded to find, on reaching
Calais, that men, women, nnd children, all spoke
French. In tho height of tho perplexity which
this occasioned, he retreated to bed, and was
awakened in the morning by the cock crow
ing, whereupon he burst into a wild exclama
tion of astonishment and delight, and exclaimed,
" Thank goodness, there's English at last 1 "

Great fun has been created in Turin by tho

HoRitiiiLE. At the entrance to Milford

named Burke, with a rope fastened to his waist,
plunged into a heavy sea to recover a small
boat that had been carried from its fastenings.

which broke at the joining, a- d left the man,
hampered, to be carried out to seu, amid tho
cries of his wife and children. A comrade
named Kay, a powerful swimmer, plunged in
to rescue him, but was dashed back senseless
by a huge wave, thirty feet high upon the rocks.
In a little whilo tho body of the drowned man
roso to the surface, and a sea gull perched on
its head, and, in sight of nil on shore, com

the corpse .and its wretched freight out of sight.
Two days afterwards the terror stricken widow

A skater of thirty years experience, who has
taught his children iu a fortnight, writes tho
following directions :
"Begin by walking on tho ice, crossing the
feet at each step, and they should practice it
also who can only run forwards on the insido
edgo, if they wish to become proficient. Walk
any ten paces forwards, crossing the one foot
over tho other at overy pace, and then walk the
same lino backwards, crossing the one foot be
hind tho other at every pace. You will get a
fall or two at first, but in a few lessons you will
find that you can do it without them. As soon
ns this is accomplished with moderate facility,
still adhering to the mossing the feet, which is
tho whole secret, let the foot follow the ekate,
and you will find that you are, insensibly as it
were, rollini! both backwards and forwards on
tho outside edge. It is a simple truth, and is
a mechanical certainty, ns, tho leg once crossed,
the skate on each foot can only rest on the out
side edge and the balance of the body iu that
positiou has been learnt."
A smart wlfo cleared fivo hundred dollars, a

him at La Crosse ; sho went to Chicago instcod,
and was arrested by telegraph on Monday, for

PROSPECTUS OP THE WEEKLY NATIONAL
REPUBLICAN.
Washington, D. O., December, 1880.
The undersigned have commenced the publica
tion, In this city, of a weekly newspaper, called
the National Republican.
It Is printed ona large sheet, 27 by 42 Inches,
and is furnished at the low prices stated below.
It will contain all the original matter of the
daily National Republican, with the exception of
local news not Interesting to country subscribers.
It will give full reports of the proceedings
of Congreit, and of the other departments of tho
National Government.
It will contain all the news of the day, foreign
and domestic, markets, 4e., 4c, as well as an
original correspondence from all parts of the
country. The miscellaneous department will re
ceive special attention, and, la all respects, the
effort will be made to establish the cbaracterof
the National Republican as a ,
FAMILY NEWSPAPER.
In politics, the paper will be Republican, sus
taining the Incoming Administration of Mr. Lin
coin, but disclaiming, however, any pretension
to be the organ of the President elect.
There Is no other Republican paper In tho
District of Columbia, or In the vicinity of it, and
It Is believed that recent events have opened to
such a paper an Important sphere of useful ef
fort. The time has come, when the actual ad
ministration of the Government upon Republican
principles will explode, tho misrepresentations
which have made those principles so distasteful
to the .-'outh.
But li Is not only here, and In this vicinity,
that the projectors of the National Republican
hope to make It useful. To the whole country
they offer a journal which will discuss nallonal
politics from a national standpoint, nnd which
will never be swerved from patriotic duty by any
overpowering pressure of local Interest.
