Tho Wife of Snodgrasg Writes the Life of Horace Grecloy. The stranger told us that Ins nntno VM biiotlgrnm. H0 elld i10 hatj ,)ccn Inarric(1 Severn year?, und never had tho slightest mis unilcntandln with his wife until tho question or funialo sullrago hean to be talked about n the city, and tho women commenced hold ng tneetinps, and agitating themselves and the rcat of mankind about tho matter. Jlra. hnodgrnss was tho Sccrotary ol" tlio female siillrage club, and had been appointed to de liver an address on tho life and times of Hor ace Greeley. For elx mortal week, .lay and night, Mrs. H. liad been occupied in preparing Iter ad dress, and at this time had completed ninety page?, embracing the flrat year of the infant Horace. Jle hud told her that at tho rate sjio was going on, her addrew would cover three hundred thousand jinxes of foolscap, and she would be a grandmother beforo sho could linish it up; and then to read it to tho club would tako at least ninety years, and consume forty million feet of gas. Notwith standing these statistics, Mrs. Snodgnus per sisted in going on with her addrws, to the ni-glect of her family duties and her husband's shirt-buttons. On this night she had lccn nuzzled to ascertain at what precise period of Jus infantile career tho future philosopher had cut eye-teeth, and had searched through every book in the Mercantile Library for authority on that jwint, but all tho Horatian writers wore silent upon tho faet, and she could not possibly proceed any further until it was dcli nitely settled. "She asked rr.y opinion," said Snodgrass, "and I told her J thought it was on the day of the battle of Jlull Run, when Qrccley led the attack upon tho enemy's breast work, and wasrcpnWcd; because, said I, when suck ers with their eye-teeth cut, attack breast works, they arc generally repulsed." "Mr. SnodgraM," id she, loosing tho fcac clmrino of hor temper, -"I want no trilling upon this subject. 15eauK -jou arc opposed to fomale guflrngc, you make" light of every thing connected with the subject. Your al lusion to surkrrs and breast-works is ex tremely vulgar, and unworthy tho dignity of a married man. If you persist in treating the wife of your bowm with such contempt, I shall apply for a divorce, and go back to my ma." '' My dear," said L "in that election vou ".' mc railing voio. witv a uivorcc uy nil means, and then von tan mnrrv Horace, rtnil wear bis brecehoe, and his old white coat, too, lor an l care' out of the window, and cried murder at tho top of hor voice, and that's tho way I came to be arrested." Mo. Democrat. A Caittai. Hit. Governor Seymour, in a recent sK)ceh in Ilrooklyn, Xo York, gave a most apt illustration of tho Kadiral jwlicy of regulating all tho thoughts nnd actions of men by a law. He said : "Our Republican friends believe in tic power of government to do that which we believe is best done bv everv man's own hon est convictions of right. Hut I assert in tho language of Milton, wio was not only a great nocr, but a groat statesman, that you can have no great civilization in any land where men are coerced in all actions of their life. I once asked a eentleman if be believed tin tho Bjstctn of coercion ho completely that if a i man would not drink for ten years because tho law would not let luin, ho would bo a temjicrnnco man thereafter. He said ho did. I said, suppose yea vnake a, law so perfect that he would not be gu'dty of any misdo- meanor whatever, would you not consider that better still? He said he would. Sup pose you make n law so perfect that liq snail rise, retire, labor rfcijlurlr', read his ;55jblc every day regularly in his bedroom, and go to church twice a day every Sunday,, engage in no unmoral conversation, anij be subjected to no temptations would that not bo the jier fection of your system ? Ho admitted that itwould. Wellmy friend, faid I, if you go down to Sing-Sing, you will find a thousand men there living; under your system, nnd if one of them escaped to-morrow- and your house wa3 burned, lie would be the lirst man you would arrest." A "Sw.txo CAitnuon." Tho St. Louis Democrat loscrile.s a newly invented "sailing carriage," designed for uo on the Nesr Mex ico route : It lias two upright jib sails, and a soil on each spoke of tho two wheels on one side of tho wagun, with steering gear acting on tho forward whcols, and provision for transferring tho wheel sails to tho opposito wheels. The inventor is Charles P. Mnczo witzky, a Gormim, who lias bcon n sailor, and lias siheo spent f-evcrnl years in traversing tho plains. Ho relics upon tho ascertained con stancy of tho prevalent winds on the great plnins over tho routo named. The wheels arc ten feet high, tlm wagn yy shajjed like a long boat and hung low, and with tho jib sails, the wholo concern jircsonts an odd and fonnidablo appearance. The design is to take passengers nnd mail matter only not freight and it is expected that tho carriago will sufllco as a boat in crossing streams. Unixfi.ammahi,e Drkssks. It is much to bo regretted that tho process of rendering tho materials of ladies' muslin drcs.ws uninflam mable is not moro generally understood and used. Either of tho thrco substances phos phato of ammonia, tungstnte of soda, and sul phate of ammonia can bo mixed in tho starch, and, at tho cost of two cents a dress, deaths from burned garments can bo rendered impos sible. Articles of apparel subjected to those agents can, if they burn at all, only smolder; and in no caso can they blaze up in tho sud den and terrible manner in which so many fatal accidents have occurred to tlio fair wear ers of crinoline.

A Nr.w CnrSiiKit. The Gold Hill. fNovA Ifirwt, of December 12, 1807, gives an account of a machine for crushing quartz recently in vented ly a gentleman ot that place, which, if only one-half as successful ns it really promises, will Drove by far the most cflcctivc crushing instrument ever applied to the re duction of ores, at least on this coast, as well as being of incalculable importance to our mining interests at largo. The extraordinary crushing apparatus is thus described : "This mill or crusher is simply an iron wheel six icoi in diameter, and weighing about a ton, with a chilled iron surfaco twelve inches in width, which will bo made to rotate alter nately backward and forward over a grating composed of heavy bars, placed one, two, or thrco inches apart, as may be found requisite. Tho wheel rotates in a narrow space between two wans, and is kept in projicr position by means of iron guides plaoed nt the axlc al lowing it to move freely in the directions proposed. Uy means of self-regulating springs and a sliding beam, an immense pressure is brought to boar from above, directly ujon tho upper jicriphcry of the wheel, and tho motion is communicated by moans of power applied to a crank in tho centre of the wheel, causing it to move about seven feet, backward and forward as before described. This same jjowcr which moves this wheel, also caasos a little distributing car on each tide of the wheel to follow it up with the requisite sup ply of quartz, which being distributed in the proper place, tho immense pressure of tho wheel is brought to bear upon it, grinding and reducing it to such a degreo that it pawi os down between tho bars ujwn a screen be low, whore that which is not reduced to the projwr degreo of fineness for grinding and amalgamating by pan process, is separated for further treatment under the wheel. We do not care to enter into a minute description of tho detail, but all the little emergencies are provided for. According to actual figured estimate, with this new mill, considerably ovor one hundred tons of quartz can Ik cruli od in a day, arid a competent engineer cli mntes that a ten horse power engine will Ixs frilly competent to do tho work. Millions upon millions of tous of low grade ore arc awaiting some such cheap mode of crushing as this promises, and in every portion of the State, as well as in our own famous Comstock." Those arc tho principal features of the now crushing machinery, over the philosophy of wuicu our mill men and iiKH-iianics may cogl tntc at will. A little trial of the principle by the inventor would do & great deal to help belief in its practical utility; for before this the stifiesthopes have bccn""crushed to earth" by tnaebines which npiiesrcd to be as extra ordinary as this Gold Hill pmdlgy.
