BIGHTS ON BAIBWAYS. JHere is a paragraph which is wandering round among our exchanges, originating we know not where. We publish it as containing some sound advice to womankind, and some useful hints to railway companies:] “In the Buffalo Police Court, it was held last week that ladies are legally entitled to no more privileges in public conveyance than gen tlemen, and that when the latter pay for seats they have a right to occupy them, so long as they c'ouduct themselves in a proper manner. A conductor was accordingly fined $5 foi ejecting a man from a car because he refused to give his seat to a woman.” This is interesting to everybody at this time oi' much travelling, and will be, more or less, at all seasons in a country covered with rail ways. Perhaps the decision of the Buffalo Police Court carries with it no great weight of authority, but, as it happens to be strictly in accordance with the law of contracts and with the principle of oommon sense, it Is quite as respectable as if it came from the Supreme Court of the United States. A contract to he carried by a railway company implies a bench to sit upon during the journey—not benches lor women and children, but benches for men. The woman above mentioned had a right to a seat, but she had no right to that of another passenger. Now this is what ladies, especially in America, find it hard to understand. They make in this matter no appeal to the civility or courtesy of the passenger ousted, who may he an invalid or much more weary than they are, but with “Get up!” in every line of their lovely faces, they wait for obedience to the si lent but imperious mandate, and then plump down without one word of thanks. There are, it is true, privileged women—those who carry infants in their anns, and those who are old—to whom the coveted place will be in stantly offered by every gentleman. It is. in deed, a wrong and a shame to soil tickets to passengers for whom no places have been pro vided; but the ticket office is miles away, and there can be no redress then and there for the swindle. But it does not by any means follow because a passenger pleases to insist upon hit simple rights, that he is to be bullied by the conductor, and much less does it follow that he is to be ejected from the car because his ideas of politeness may differ from those oi the officer in charge of the train. American gentlemen have been soured, and made, per haps, forgetful of what was due to themsolves, by the pei-sistent incivility, in theatres, in lec ture rooms, in railway carriages, in all public places of congregation, of under-bred women, who insolently demand that which they cai. rightly ask only as a kindness. Most men submit to imposition rather than appear un civil, and in nine cases out of ten they re ceive no thanks for their courtesy. Now and then, some old gentleman who does not care to cut a kDightiy figure, resolutely reftise3 to budge, and is pronounced a beast for his pains isut wnat, alter all, is Ins ottense V He ha. hi(pd a place, and that place he pleases to keep. Why not visit a little indignation upon those who leased places and then neglected wiifuliy to provide them ? In the name o‘ many millions of legs which have ached in the past, and of many more millions which are destined to ache in the future, we protest that the true remedy for the evil will be found, not in bullying those who will not submit tc to be swindled, but in providing a suffi cient number of seats to accommodate com fortably all who may buy tickets. If a lady buys a ticket, and then is not properly provid ed ior, let her bring her action against the com pany. Let her, if necessary, leave the train, hire a conveyance, or stop at some hotel, and send her hill to the company. She would have law on her side, and one or two cases, resolutely followed up, would astonishingly in crease the number of cars on some of our railways. THE “BUMMERS.” From “The Story of the Great March,” by Maj. Geo. Ward Nichols: It is a sked whata bummer is, and the reply is easy. He is a raider on his own account—n man who temporarily deserts his place in the ranks while the army is on the march, and starts out upon an independent foraging expe dition. Sometimes he is absent for a few days only, occasionally he disappears for weeks to gether. An officer whose duty requires him to pass from one column to another, or a pri vate soldier sent out upon a scout in the for est or on the flank of the army not unfrequent ly stumbles suddenly upon an eneampment of hummers in the woods, or finds a party of them at a house by the wayside. This party bears all the outward aspect Jof an ^authorized and " i>erl'ectly legitimate foraging party; the capa cious wagons are there, with caparisoned mules; blood horses stand tethered within reach of their apparent owners; the camp fires burn brightly; a sumptuous meal is ready.— but if one of these men be accosted with some such question as tills, “To what command do you belong?” the answer comes thus: “Well, we don’t answer for anybody in par ticular—’bout every corps in the army; eh, Bill, ain’t that so?” “Bill” says “Reckon 1” and thinks it a huge joke, and then everybody except the interlocu tor iaughs. “How longhave you been away from your regiment?” At thi s question the bummer rises upon his feet, and replies, rather more respectfully: “A week and ten days, cap’n.” “Have you any authority for foraging?” “No, sir.” “What use or benefit are you to the service, to say nothing of the criminality of your ab sence without leave ? Now, you belong to a class which has brought discredit upon your comrades. You ought to be ashamed of your selves, all of you,” j us uuhsu muscular and daring fellows who heard tnis little speech seemed to fail to see the point of it. One of them replied * “See tear, cap’ll; we ain’t so bad after all. We keep ahead of the skirmish line allers. We let’s ’em know when an emeny’s a-comin’ • and then we ain’t alters away irom the regi ment. We turns over aft we don’t want our selves, and we can lick five times as many rebs as we are, any day. Ain’t that so, boy8y” “Lick ’em! d—n ’em yes. Why of course!” were the instant replies of tne“boys.” “Rath er shoot rebs than hogs any day!” roared an other. t It may be ieadily imagined that high mor al precepts are lost upon these meu, and that conversations with them upon the gener al impropriety of their conduct are decidedly useless. They are the lteihemians of the camp, and they act upon this consolatory re flection. A "bummer” may once have been a foot so.dier, but I never saw one who was not mounted on some sort of an animal. Some times lie bestrides a superb biooded horse, which is the envy of every general in the ar my ; more frequently lie rides a broken down nag that is able to hobble along sufficiently • last for its owner’s purposes but the favorite is the mule. 1 here may be little or no actual poetry jn a mule—although I profess an un willingness to admit any slur upon that much abused aunnal-yet it would be difficult to hnd auiore lmrdy, long-winded, strong-legged, tofcpmplauung, and altogether loveable crea ture for the use of man than the mulei 'Hie bummer’ appreciates his good qualities, and hence the iavoritsm. SKELETON LEAVES AHB FLOWERS. A correspondent of the Evening Post gives some excellent directions for the preparation of skeleton leaves and flowers as ornaments, which of late have become so fashionable for the mantle, or as subjects for stereoscopic ob servation. The leaves should be steeped in rain-water in broad, open bowls, and exposed to the sun and air until all the soft parts are perfectly de cayed. The water should not be changed, but the bowls filled as the water evaporates. Some kinds of leaves will be ready to clean in the course of a month or three weeks; others will require a much longer time; but as it depends very much on the heat of the sun, and the age of the leaves when gathered, no precise period can be named. In some leaves the skin will peel off in small particles, in others it can be peeled off entirely, or it may decay altogether. The bowls should be examined occasionally, and the leaves ready for cleaning removed to a basin of soft water; they should then be gen tly rubbed in the water with the fingers till every particle of skin or green pulp is remov ed from the fibre; should this not succeed, the stronger leaves may be cleansed with soap and flannel. This will finish the skeletonizing process. The fibres should then be carefully dried, having first pressed them in a soft towel, in order to remove the moisture. They are now ready for bleaching, and may be laid away un til a sufficient quantity is collected. The liquor for bleaching is prepared by pour ing a quart of boiling water upon a quarter of a pound of chloride of lime in the powder.— This should be allowed to stand until cold, and the clear liquor poured off, which may be bot tled for use. When wanted for bleaching, mix with cold water, in about the proportions of one part of the liquor to twenty of water, in shallow dishes; lay the leaves in, and let them remain until perfectly white, when they must be removed immediately and dried in blotting paper. If this solution should not be strong enough to bleach them in ten or twelve hours, a little more of the liquor must be added; but care must be taken not to use too much, or the finer fibres will be destroyed. in me dissecting process, tee leaves invaria bly come off their stems; they may be mount ed when bleached, either among branched stalks previously dried and bleached, or on fine wire covered with white tissue paper. The leaves should be gathered when fully grown, or the fibre is not sufficiently strong, and some leaves dissect much better than oth ers. Among these are the poplar, maple, pear, ivy, holly, magnolia, &c.; the seed vessels of I the large Oriental poppy, the thorn, apple and henbane, dissect well, and many smaller seed vessels, after they have shed their 6eeds may be dried, and then bleached without steeping in water, as first directed. DEFEAT OF THE LONDON TIMES IN THE ENGKLISH ELECTIONS. There is more significance in the defeat of Mr. Walter, the principal proprietor of the Londom ITimes, in the English election contest that at first sight appears. Until recently this gentleman has not identified himself at all, publicly with the valuable newspaper property he owns. But some two or three years ago he took to the business of having his dull parlia mentary performances reported at great length in his own journal. And the unfair character of some of these reports—or what was alleged to be their unfair cnaiacter —led to a person al discussion In the House of Commons, rela tive to Mr. Walter’s connactions with Print ing House-square. Little came directly of that discussion. But since then the defeated pro prietor has effected a consequence and stand ing which his natural talents indifferently sus tain. His speciality has been public educa tion, and all the heavy things he could say on that novel subject have been reproduced in the best columns of the London Times. He has also made no secret of his desire to be come a peer of the realm, so soon as his par liamentary votes and the ministerial organ ship performed by his journal should give him a feasible claim upon Lord Palmerston. The electors of Berks have spoiled, for the present, this laudable ambition. Mr. Walter’s connec tion with the ‘“leading journal,” instead of bringing him credit with the yeomanry of Eng land, has, by his unfortunate avowal of it, brought him political discomfiture. And to day his peerage must be a more distant pros pect than it was before he took to trading in his newspaper connection.—JL Y. Times. A Temple Discovered At Pompeii. — Letters from Naples describe a temple of Juno discovered among the recent excavations at Pompeii. Three hundred skeletons were found crowded within the sanctuary, a propitiatory service having evidently been held in the hour they were overwhelmed. The statue of the goddess with its attendant peacock, the tripod in front of the altar, the golden censer the jewels on the person of the priestess, the rich vessels holding the deposit of animal blood are the main. particulars dwelt on. The eyes of Juno were of the most vivid enamel, her arms and her whole person richly decorated with gold trinkets, her gaudy birds resplendent with a cluster of glittering gems. Aromatic ingredients lay calcined within the censer, while gorgeous lamps and bronze ornaments strewed the tesselated pavement. Flour, Pork, Beef, Lard and Hams / Patapsco Family Flour !
