[From the N■■ w York Herald.] Berlin, Feb. 3.—Small pox ravages throughout this coutim nt, and especially in this metropolis, where, during 1871, the number of deaths from this loathsome disease exceeded 9.000, gathering victims from all ranks of society, has naturally prompted physicians to search energetically the realm of 0 eir art for remedies to cheek the disease in its ccmse, instead of tnearely supporting the patient, as has been the practice hither to. The most success ful of the zealous Kseulapians in the search, whose opportunities for experimenting and observing are of the best, he being the chief director of the small pox department in the Royal flharite, we have hastened to interview in order to obtain the important facts concerning his discovery. Dr. kV • Zuelizer, a native of Breslau, middle aged, medium height, capital phy sique, and broad, heavy German face and brow, received us very politely, and at once expressed bis readiness to favor us with the desired information. ‘‘Weil, doctor, we are informed that you are the discoverer of this new small pox remedy, xylol. ‘•Not discoverer, sir ; the agent has long been known. I simply am the first who has applied it in the treatment of disease, and, 1 acknowledge, it is creating son e attention, as you may see by these several letters of inquiry from London, Southamp ton, Paris, &c.” “But, doctor, you speak of this xylol as a long known agent. This medical gentle man from Southampton inquires as to its nature, whether animal, vegetable or mineral.” “Well. here, you see it in this book ; and also in this handbook on chemistry puh lished in 1860. By distilling oil of tar yon obtain at IS degrees cels, bensol; at 110 degiees toluol; at 140 degrees zylob and at 216 degrees xylodin. The xylol, as numerous experiments I have made upon the animals have convinced me, is really absorbed by this system. Taken ever, in very moderate doses for some 18 or 20 hours in complete diffusion manifests in ihe breiuh, the urine, the exhalations ot ihe skin. Its peculiar effect is owing to a property it has of combining with th< virus in Ihe blood and forming a salt which is harmlessly ejected by the system.' “Would not toluol have a similar effect “Nut at all; it la ks the access;. r\ uiiuiiry Xylol alone has the desired eff« <■; and must be prepared with *£reHt uec,uraey “Do you prepare it yourself, doctor? “Noj I get from the chemical works ot Scheering & t'o., n its necessary purity ’ “At what stage of the disease do you think it best 'o administer it ?” “The sooner the better.” “What doge do you prescribe?' “To adults 10 to 15 drops every two tv three hours; tochildren from three to fiv drops. No injurious effects have been observed when- larger doses have been given. I have put it up iu capsules oi gelatine, containing three, five or ten drops It may also be taken in wine or water. The treatment continues until the postules are perfectly dry.” “Now. doctor, how aboit the success? Here the doctor laid hold of an imtnens pile of returns from h s department iu the Charite, that vast asylum in which an treated the sick ol all parts of the city and state, and went on to show a multitude ot cases treated before the new remedy was tried, all of which lasted from 20 to 25 days. “Now,” said the doctor, “with the new treatment we have cut down the duration of the disease to 10 or 11 days Th° dip theria, deliriousness, and soreness of eves usually accompanying the disease are very materially lessened, and entirely t hviated in the most of cases. Even the pitting is less marked ” “These are splendid resu'ts. doctor and must give great satisfaction.” “I hope to improve on this, however ; I expect yet to succeed in combining other elements with xylol and obtain something more satisfactory. Indeed, lam not pre pared, and did not expect, to bring this before the public now, as 1 am still busy with observations and expeiiments.” Fame. — W'fen Tamerlane had finished building bis pyramid o seventy thousand human skull-, and was seen standing at the gate of Damascus glittering with steel, with his battle axe on bis shoulder, till the fierce hos r filed to new victories and carnage, the talc on-looker might have fancied that na ture was in her death throes; for havoc and di-pair had tc.ken possession ol the earth, and tli»suu of manhood seems setting in blood Yet it might be on that very gala day of Tamerlane, a lift e boy was playing in the stieets ol Muntz, whose his tory is more important than tw. n y ’lamer lanes!

Saved by His Assassin.— The New York World takes quite an original vew of the Fisk case. It says that Stokes rav ed him from coining to ruin, and argues that in the natural course ot events his life would have terminal! d in poverty and disgrace—in a p.oor house or a prison. It Stokes hid been sagacious enough ro plan a really terrible revenge; it he had in t been a passionate tool, he w< uld have let him run through his natural career, to be overtaken by his inevitable fate. The hul let, says the New Yi rk World, wh ■ h ended the caieer of Fisk, iiv sted lis memory in a moment with a kind of popu lar sympathy and pity, which will infalihly be imputed, if not to him for righteous ness, at least fur scandal and a jbamo to his siayet. Little Lu was left in the care of her aunty one day; soon she was missing: aunty looked all around, calling loudly, but no one came- Growing alarm d, she went to the barn; there sat Lu on the floor, with bay nicely arranged about hi r. wink ing, and blinking.

A TALE OF A PAIK OK PANTALOONS). Davenport, our sister city, has just had a sensation. It was all about a pair of pantaloons, and is to terminate in a divorce suit. In my preceding letter I alluded to the encouragit g mannet* in which people out this way are emulating the famed ex iin; le of Chicago’s good citizens. The c si; in hand is another illustration. For nstance. a Davenport legal gentleman w nt out one evening last week to have a quiet gaii eof bilhard. He stuck to his "ue for si T ral faithful houis, convivializ ed with his fri< nds still longer and 'hen went home On retiring to rest, he was mn t singularly uneasy, and tossed for s ue time without dropping into that peac ful slumber we usually derive from a cieur conscience. His lidywas annoyed, and con plained k ndly It was no use, however. Something drove sleep from his e eli s. Ai this juncture his lady was ■ 'ken suddenly and urlarmingly ill (how fortunate he had remained awake !) and he was appealed to to 1 ast.-n off to the nearest ■ Irug store in quest id a restorative He tiastily attired himself, double quickened down the Street, rushed into a store, obtained the article so urgently required, nd produced his pocket book to pay for it Great Caesar' What had transpired ? Hr had never seen that wallet before—and the pants? they were not his own. Could it be possible he was in his right mind? Was it not rather all a distempered dream ? He resolved to see, and without stopping ti lake the remedy with him, he rushed back to the wife of bis bosom He did not flourish a revolver. He did not smash furniture. He did not strike attitudes like a gladiator He simply took part in the following conversation: ‘Jane V ‘Yes, dear.’ ‘How are you feeling ?’ ‘Getter .Much better I think a good sleep is all I now need How kind of you to go to so much trouble.’ ‘Very kind wasn’t it?’ ‘Very kind, honey.’ ‘Jane, shall 1 turnon the gas V ‘lt you like, dear.’ The gas was turned on. •Jane ?' ‘Yes, dear.’ ‘i o these look like my pantaloons?’ ‘Why, what can you mean, dear?' ‘1 mean, do these resemble the trouscs I wore home this evening ?' ‘Why how can 1 tell, dear?’ and Jane raised up with some surprise and mine tance, gave a quick glance and screamed outright. ‘ Husband.’ said she with some embar rassment, ‘you've made a ridiculous mis take somewhere, while out with your iriends. Wh tin the world h.ivt you been Join to night?’ ‘ That’s rather thin Jane. We don’t usually take off our pants to play billiards. When I went to bed to night, 1 laid my proper pantaloons on that there chair When 1 dressed to go out, the pair I have on first fell in my way. 1 put them on 1. discovered at the store they were not mine I returned at once, and now 1 find the pair I left on that chair aie now missing.” Jane began to sob, weep and protest her innocence, while the husband paced the floor in deep reflection ‘June,’ at last he said, ‘I guess you can go home to your parents to u orrow You and 1 have gotten along very well lor a year or two hut the thing is played out.’ And down stairs he went, .with a d< al ear to the frenzied appeals and .prayers she showered after him. An investigation on the morrow disclosed the fact, that the n ysteriously procured pantaloons contained just s3bo more than the pair that ha,, so mysteriously walked off Jane left on the first train for her Illinois home, a bill ol divorce has been filed, and no one has been called to exchange pantaloons or pocket ho >k—[( hicago Journal.

NUMBER I. Agassiz as a Boy -~-The story is told of Professor Agassiz that he was a poor Swiss lad, who refusing to learn to turn a penny by his father's trade, began alone to spell out the alphabet of Nature in rocks, in birds, and beasts. The know ledge did not promise to help him on one whit among bis neighbois; did not put shoes on his feet or salt in his porrige A comfortable home and a successful business wa'ted for him, but he choose to g<r wiodering through the Alps, hatchet ill ' a id, and often but a sou in bia pocket, ‘*u sum so little/' he said, “when my hun ger was so big.” So, hungry auil naif clothed, he followed for years the half ef faced signs of this unknown language, which he fancied God had spoken and not men. as a child might trace the footsteps of a lost mother. At last, he made his way to London, to Sir Roderick Mur chison, who, he thought could help him. “ >• ell, sir, what do yon know ?" demand ed the great naturalist, noting bis beard less chin and ruddy cheeks “I think,” said the lad, “a little about fi-hes." That night at a meeting of the Royal Society, Sir i.oderick held up a covered package. “I have here,” he said, “a fish which existed in such an era”—some time long before Adam was born—and proceeded to state the exact conditions and positions in which it was found. ‘‘Can our young friend, who knows something about fishes, tell us anything ab ut it ?” Whereupon the Swiss boy promptly drew upon the blackboard a sko'eton monster, of which the real ene, w e i uncovered proved to be the exact duplicate, and then the old graybeards present recognized him as one of them selves ; and gave him place, ver} much as the kings iu Hades lose to receive leon A Summary I’emoval, or decapita linn, occurred in the Senate this morning, the victim being one H. Siegfried, who has held the position of mail-currier. Mr. M'.‘Murry introduced u resolution declaring the office vacant, aud stated that Siegfried hadn’t put in an appearance for three months, and had hypothecated all his warrants "acioss the street ” Quite a nice thing lor Mr Siegfried to draw four dol lars per day and return no service there for. Mr. S. is brought up with a round turn, and for the balance of the session, at least, will be minus his per diem.— [Chronicle’s Sacramento correspondent. At one of our churches, Sunday, while the organ was playing vociferously, a good lady whispering to her neighbor in the pew, had to raise her voice quite, high in order to be heard. Suddenly the organ changed Iroui loud to soft, when the lady n t taking note of tl e organ, was heard to say to her f iend. “We try ours in butter.'’ Perhaps the congregation didn't snicker ? There is no greater everyday virtue than cheerfulness This quality in man among men is like sunshine to the day, or gentle, renewing moisture to parched herbs. The light of a cheerful face diffuses itself, and comm uni cates th-. happy spirit that inspires it. The sourest ten per must sweeten in the atmosphere of continuous good humor. Eliz-'beth Cady Stanton has the courage to mention the fact that certain women suffragists once picked up an orphan boy, bought him nice clothes, educated him for (lie ministry, and when they went to hear his first sermon were struck with consterna tion to hear the text; "Let the women keep silent in the church.” “Win re did you get that turkey ?” said a Colonel to a recruit who came into camp with a fine bird. “Stole it !” was the la conic reply. “Ah !” said the Colonel, triumphantly, “my boys may steal, but they won’t lie.” A Michigan Indian was promptly es corted to the happy hunting ground by s can of nitm glycerine which he attempted to open with his little hatchet.
