The Showman’s Speech on the * Constrictor. “Jo hn, undo hia tail. There, ladies and gentlemen is the wonderful boy con structor, «o called because be constructs many pleasing images with his serpentile form. The constructor is a long animal, as you will perceive, and is very long liv ed. He lives a hundred years or more, if he don’t die beforehand. He is of the wormy species, and worms himself along the ground without legs. He is capable of climbing the highest trees, in which he is fond of concealing himself in the branch es thereof, that he may impose upon the benighted traveller or other beasts, where by to assatiate his hunger. He mashes his vittals before he eats ’em, and then swallows ’em head first. The sea serpent is much larger, yet I think the boy con structor could lick him ; for he is full of pluck. Prick him John, and make him hiss. When he hisses he is very angry and cares very little what becomes of him. This is because he is weak-minded, and has a small head. He has, however, a very large belly, and when it is full he is good-natured. He has a lovely skin, but is very ugly tempered. He is very sulky and lazy, and he is spiteful, it is a mercy be can’t talk. I have took care cf this mighty snake for three years, but he shows no gratitude. He is a glutton, and likes to stuff himself, and then go to sleep. If John don't stir him (stir him again, John !) he would never wade up, except to his victuals. I don't know’s I ought to blame him though; because nature is nature, whether in Boston or the rude valleys of Bengal. I have an uncle who has lived in Bengal, and a brother who has never been there. My uncle tells me he has seen ten thousand boy constructors at one time a frolicking in the forest, and eating each other up. My brother does not be lieve it, but then he has not seen it. My uncle may be depended upon. He was a missionary once, and sold rum and sugar to the Injuns. He is the only man in the world who ever sold liquor to the boy con structors. This is the one he gave it to. He first got it tight, and then boxed him up The boy will never forgive him.” A Coal Pit on Fire fora Hundred Years. —One of the most curious pheno mena in connection with coal mining is exhibited at the Bank Colliery, near Ro therham, the property of Earl Fitzwilliam. The pit caught fire 100 years ago, and all the efiorts of the workmen at the time, and subsequently, have been quite ineffectual to extinguish it. A short time ago it was ascertained that the flames were approach ing the boftom of the shall, and it was then resolved, if possible, to stay their progress, so that they might not extend to other parts of the workings. At length the Superintendent of the colleries, Mr. T Cooper, conceived the idea of building a wall to shut in the fire, and in order to ascertain the best site for this wall, sever al of the officials crept on their hands and knees, through the dense stifling smoke, as far as possible into the work ings. Their efforts were successful, and the wall is now completed nearly 1,000 yards in length, and varying from nine inches to five feet in thickness. . At distances varying from thirty to fifty yards metal pipes have been inserted jn this wall, which are securely plugged at the end, so that at any time, by removing the plugs, the state of the air on the side of the fire, and even the position of the fire itself, can be ascertained. So intense is the heat arising from this fire that people possessing gardens above the colliery declare that the growth of plants is materially affected, and that they are enabled to obtain two and three crops every year. —[From the London News. Cautiousness —Shun evil speakers.— Deal tenderly with the absent; say noth ing to inflict a wound on their reputation. They may be wrong and wjeked, yet your knowledge of it does not oblige you to disclose their character, except to save others from injury. Then do it in a way that bespeaks a spirit of kindness to the absent offender. Be not hasty to credit evil reports. They are often the result of misunderstanding, or evil design, or they proceed from an exaggerated or partial disclosure of facts. Wait and leatn the whole history before you decide; then believe what evidence compels yon to, and no more. But, even then, take heed not to indulge the least nnkiudness, else yon dissipate all the spirit of your prayer for them, and unnerve yourself fordoing them good. Poetical Pittsburg newsboys enlivened the streets with their cries of “Here’s the President’s lingo, all about fish and St. Domingo.” A young man at La Crosse, Wis., look ed through the keyhole of a girl’s bedroom, and ever sinee the doctors have been try ing to get a knitting needle out of the place where hia eye wed to be. COMTE NTS OF A GREAT CITY. The population of London is nearly double that of Paris, four times that of New York, five times that of Berlin, six times that of St. Petersburg, twelve times that of Amsterdam, and eighteen times that of Home. The inhabitants of Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and St. Petersburg added together, fall short of the population ot London, which exceeds that of all Scot land, is more than equal to two-thirds of the population of all Ireland, and consti tutes nearly one-eight of the whole popula tion of p'eat Britain. The increase alone in the inhabitants of London during the last thirty years exceeds the entire popu lation of the kingdom of Greece, brigands included Indeed, one of the most surprising things about modern London is the rapidi ty of its growth Notwithstanding its already enormous size in 1849, not a fewer than 225,322 new houses have been added to it since then, forming sixty-nine new squares and 5,831 new streets, of the total length of 1,030 miles! Nor has the growth of London apparently been checked, not withstanding all adverse times; houses were in course of erection in the month of February last. In short as the French observer said of London, “it is not so much of a city, as a province covered by buildings.” The miserable and desperate classes of London are almost equal in number to the population of some kingdoms; they would fill a great city by themselves. They in clude a multitude of beggars, tramps, match sellers, crossing sweepers, rag pick ers, organ grinders, prostitutes, and others, all hanging on the outskirts of society, ready at any moment to become crimiq|l. In the second week of June last there were 41, 502 in-door paupers and 88,982 out-door paupers in the metropolitan dis tricts, maintained at the public expense; and outside this actual pauper class there is always a vast number of poor men and women struggling for subsistence amid*the wretchedness, dirt, drunkenness and crime. —Quarterly Review. Court Incidents. —One ofthepromi mcnt ornaments of the bar, celebrated for his genial disposition, found himself about the close of the year washed ashore, high and dry, pecuniarily, in the city of Rich mond, where be was forced to hang out his shingle and commenced practice in the Hustings Court. One of the first clients was a youth who had been arrfsted at the instance of a respectable negro man of family, for having “rocked” his house, and severely injured his daughter with a atone thrown through the window. At the examination old Pompy was put upon the stand, and proved the charge in such undeniable terms that it would have gone hard with our friend’s client, had it not been for the following cross examina tion : Lawyer—You say a stone came into the room where you were sitting with your daughter ? Pomp —Yes, boss. Lawyer—Where did it strike her ? Pomp—(Silent for a while.) I don’t like to tell, boss. iiawyer—But you must tell. I demand again ! Where did he strike her ? Pomp—Dat all foolishness, boss. 1 teH you it hit her. I don’t like to tell ’fore dese ladies in Court. Lawyer—But yon must answer. Where did it hit her ? Pomp—(slowly,) On the buzzum, boss. Lawyer—Well, how severely did it in jure her ? Pomp—Oh quit dis foolishness. I ain’t gwine M. tell. Law^r —Again I must insist upon my question being answered. Did it injure her ? Pomp—(in despair)—No sah, it did not injure her, but it broke three fingers of a gentleman what was payin’ ’tentien to her. The case was dismissed for want of ju risdiction. A California Lecturess in Neb raska. —We extract the following from an article in the Omaha Republican of the 25th instant. Miss Emery, State Deputy for California of the order of Good Templars, addressed a large and attentive audience on the sub ject ofTemperance, last Sunday evening, at the North Omaha M. E. Church. Miss Emery was introduced to the audience by Rev. G- De La Matyr, in a few remarks appropriate to the occasion. With an ease and telf-possession which proved her per fectly familiar with her subject, and a fer vor which was convincing to all, of her earnestness in the cause, the discourse was opened with the question —“What is the first cause of intemperance T” Her answer was, “Fashionable drinking, wine parties and the social glass.” The oldest rosebush is said to be one which is trained upon one side of the cathedral of Hildeseeim, its age is un known, but documents exist which prove that a Bishop Hesilo, nearly a thousand years ago, protected it; by a stone roof which is now extant. .The largest rose bosh is»white Banskia in the Marine Garden, at London, which was sent there the first of its kind, by Bonpland. Its numerous branches, some of which meas ure eighteen inches in circumference, cover an immense wall to a width of near- Jy sixty feet, and at times, in early Spring, as many as 60,000 flowers have been counted on this queen of all rases. NUMBER 46. We Must Reform.—We are fast becom ing a nation of schemers to live without gen uine work. Our boys are not learning tradesj’our farmers’ sons are crowding into cities, looking for clerkships and petty offices; hardly one American girl in each hundred will do house-work for wages, how ever urgent her need; so we are sending to Europe for workmen and buying of her artisans millions worth of products that we ought to make for ourselves. Though our crop of rascals is heavy, we do not grow our own hemp; though we are over run with lads who deserve flagellation, we import our willows. Our women (unless deceived) shine in European fabrics; our ®en dress in foreign cloths; the toys which amuse our younger children have gener ally reached us over sea. Hence it is that, in spite of our high tariff, we plunge deeper and deeper into debt to the Old World—not nearly so fast as we would under a free trade policy, but still entirely too fast. We are like the farmer who hires his neighbors’ sons to cut hia wood, feed his stoi k and run his errands, while his own boys lounge at the grogshop, play ing billiards, and then wondera why, in spite of his best efforts, he sinks annually deeper and deeper into debt, till the Sheriff cleans him out, and he starts West to be gin again. We must turn over a new leaf. Our boys and girls must be taught to love labor by qualifying themselves to do it efficient ly. We must turn out fewer professionals and more skilled artisans as well as food growers. We must grow and fabricate Two Hundred Million’s worth per annum that we now import, and so reduce the foreign debt that we have so long and so successfully augmented year by year. Wo must qualify our clever boys to erect and run factories, furnaces, rolling mills, tan neries, machine shops, etc. —to open and work mines, improve and fashion imple ments, and double the present product of their fathers’ farms. So shall we stem the tide of Debt that sets steadily against our shores, and cease to he visited and annoy ed by Hard Times.—New York Tribune. Small Farms. —Be content with a small place entirely paid for, if yon have not the money to buy a laVge farm. Do not allow that eager and avaricious spirit to “own all the land that joins yours” to ruin you. One of the curses of our agri cultural districts is the size of our farms. Forty acres paid for, and tilled, is better, and far more remunerative than four hun dred under a heavy mortgage, and only half cultivated. Where one man may succeed by rashness in assuming large re sponsibilities, hundreds fall; and experi ence and observation will show that the successful owners of large tracts of lands, have usually begun by small purchases for cash, and by gradual additions as they acquired wealth by industry and economy. The Sacramento Re| orter, Sonoma Dem ocrat, Colusa Sun, Mendocino Democrat and Sierra Democrat are among the lead ing Democratic papers that have come out decidedly against the incorporation of an anti-railroad subsidy plank in the Dem ocratic platform—all of which means hos tility to the renomination of Governor Haight. There, it will be observed, are all interior papers, and in the interior Haight’s strength is supposed to be greatest. The San Francisco Examiner is on the fence. Executed Under Protest. —The Chinese went rather bunglingly at work to atone for the massacre of Christians at Tien-Tsin, and it is by no means certain that the reparation will tie considered satisfactory. The Chi nese executed were treated as martyrs in a just and holy cause, not as the perpetrators of an odious crime. Great pains were taken to assuage the bitterness of death. The friends of the deceased were paid 500 taela for each victim. Of ibis sum 100 taels wss paid in advance to purchase handsome cof fins and silk grave clothes. After the exe cution the balance was paid to the relatives in a grand ceremonial manner. The beads of the victims, instead of being exposed in n sort of wooded cage on the city walls, as customary, were sewed on again. Tbs bodies were then handed over to their friends and honored with a public funeral. In tbua treating these murderers, the moral effect of their execution was greatly lessened. It was virtually saying that they were guiltless of any crime, and that they were simply ex ecuted under protest. Revised Laws-Corporationb.—The Revis ion Commission, submitting for examina tion the portion of their work referring to Corporations, ssy : “Scarcely a section of'this title is in tbs exact language of the original. Alt have been condensed and made to conform to the decisions of the supreme court ; and wbsn possible, one has been made to perform the office of many The main features of our present statutes applicable to special cor porations have been retained ; some of minor importance are omitted at unnecessary. We invite all to give us the benefit of their views on the proposed changes contained heroin ; we do not claim to be infallible, and from the multitude of laws on the subject of cor poration ws may have selected some which are not best. If such is the esse, we are more than willing to be corrected.” In Napoleon, Arkansas, a man who had been guilty of not less than t ine homi cidea, waa elected constable by an over whelming majority.
