Terre Haute Express: The most trying cir cumstances under which a boy can be, is when another boy in the alley is winking at him, and his father is offering him a nickle to carry in a pile of wood.

New men, the Herald insists, are wanted in the politics of the period. They certainly are wanted; but are the old ones going to die? Because we never knew an old politician who was willing to give up the reins until some six months alter his death.

Dr. Lindeman says the false hair worn by ladies contains parasites. “The gregarindaj grow in lumps at the extremities of the hair. The lumps contain lots of psorasperms; the heat ot a ball room (for instance) batches them out into pseudo-navecilli, which float off and penetrate human people, and breed all sorts of diseases of the heart, lungs and kidneys.” And furthermore, “in a ball-room containing fifty ladies, 44,000,000 of navicelli art?

A SENSATION PBODUCED IN ENGLISH HIGn LIFE. One could hardly have conceived that any thing relating to persons in private life should be able to cause such a set sation as is now pervading that mysterious eutity Colled “society.” This society is just now exercised to an almost revolutionary pitch by tbe an nouncement that Mr. Holman Hunt, the eminent artist, is about to mairy his deceased wile’s sister. Such a marriage, of course, can not be legally celebrated in England, and so the parties have determined to go abroad to seek some country where tbe alliance is legal. The great question, “Ought we to visit her?” is likely to be raised, for it is un derstood that Mr. Hunt means to take bis wife off to Jerusalem, which may now be re garded as his residence. In the eyes of En glish law a lady mariied to a deceased sister's widower is simply a concubine, and as tbe lady in this ease belongs to a family of high rank, a good deal of the excitement arises on that score. But more of tbe dismay arises Iron) tbe fact that Holman Hunt is the es pecially religious artist ot England. Pious ladies have, as I have already informed you, be<*u for some time going to weep and pray before his “Shadow ofDeath,” taking seas .u tickets lor the same, at.d also their prayer books. If the artist bad been detected in an intrigue with some lady, be would have been pardoned with effusion for bis pious pictures; but when he proposes to rr.arry a lady under circumstances that Moses, Parliament, and the church do not approve, it causes a scan dal of the first water. 1 heard a lady say that “if she had heard a like rumor of the Arch bishop of Canterbury, it wouldn’t have so amazed her, as Hunt has never been such a worldling as the average English bishop, who laves old (tort and looks kindly oti fox-hunt ing. This marriage, about to be consum mated, is not unlikely to exert a very impor tant influence on tbe question of abolishing the law which prohibits it. The law has, in deed, been repeatedly violated, but hardly by persous of equal position in society. The House of Cointnous has for years been pass ing tbe act for its abolition, which is annual ly presented; but tbe House ot Lords has steadily refused to agree. The Peers have indeed so repeatedly refused to pass the tbe measure to this effect that it is proba ble that their continued obsliuancy may raise a constitutional question. It is supposed to be a part lof the En glisli uoustitunon mat me uorus must pass a measure sent them by the Commons alter a few refusals. The number ol refusals they may offer is not fixed, but ii stands in everybody’s mind at lour or five. But they have refused the bill to legalize maniage with a deceased wife’s sister more than twice that number of times. The truth is, the eunniug old Peers know very well that if ever the House of Commons resolves to challenge a final settlement of the maximum of their ve toing power it will choose some.more “burn ing question” tor the battle field. The pop ular heart is not seriously affected by the question of degrees of affinity. The lower classes are in the habit of violating the law in this particular, and as there is never any question of property involved In their case, they boldly know that there is such a law. They can not see why “their betters” can not as easily as they marry their ris ters-in-law. So the advocates of the reiorm have never been able to get up any popular enthusiasm on the subject. But a few such marriages as that now talked of in every fash iouahle drawing-room of London would cer tainly reintorce the movement and even raise it to the dignity of an agitation. A good many radicals show an entire indiffer ence to the matter because they do not wish to lop off a bough or two of what they con sider a baleful tree; they prefer on the whole that, the preseut marriage laws should be as burtheusome and antiquarian as possible, as they hope in the end to sweep them away al together. And here I must warn my reader not to imagine that'the excitement caused by the particular alliance I have mentioned takei the form of censure alone. On the contrary the satisfied arc almost as nuuietous as the scandalized, and contests between the two parlies are enough to make a Conserva tive nervous. It may be well understood that the disregatd of the conventional and legal usages environing marriage by some of the most eminent anil grave persons in literary society has beeu without a very serious effect upon this community. In the attempt to os tracise such persons “society” has signal v failed. The offenders lead just as happy b'e as the nost intensely n artied, and ha the society they can desire. Ko one position to look down on them. No one dares to speak of them as belongmg to the demi-monde. Married society in London is not severe and faultless enough to throw many stones in the direction of their house*. A distinguished ladv, the other day, gave a inner party to a young beauty^wbose rela r,'9",',thher ord aru generally believed to he legally incomplete, and iu reply to an ex pre sion of astonishment, said: “I have been that I l^eKiU5, Lo,d A> ®r B.

The plan of these assem blages differs in cne particular In m tl at of the ordinary conventional gatherings of lasli ionable people. The luudatnenlal principle of the 1 ttrr is lo sacrifice sociability to show. The fundamental principle of the former is to sacrifice show to sociability. Accordingly, iu all tuch matters as invitations, dress, co.ning and going, and what with genuine Anglican grossuess we call “entertainment,” tl.e ut most simplicity is practised. Mi»s Booth, and Mrs. Wright simply notified their liieuds early iu the winter that their parlors would be open lor them ou Saturday evenings; and as their blends include large mnr.be.s of the artists and li'erary people in tbe eiiy il has happened that foi a long success.on ol Satur day eveuiugs cultivated men and women have accepted the privilege of meet ing each other there, iD the easiest and most informal manner, without the an guish of elaborate dressing, and with the opportunity of mutual discourse on rational topics. Indeed, Mrs Croly, who is a final au thority in this province, h is pronounced these receptions at the house of the two fiiends a sue.csslnl attempt to supply the great social want that has been fell iu New York since the death of the two sisters Alice aud Phoebe Cary, “closed the one home where congenial spirits, irrespective of other qualifications, always iouml a welcome.” It is surprising, remarks tbe Union, bow bung ling we Anglo-Saxons are in the organ za tiou of our social life, and especially how stu pidly we go on y»a by year, submitting to conditions which are of our own making, and are death to aii rational eDjoj merit for people like ourselves; and it .s a real freedom of the city which M ss Booth has bestowed oil a good many New Yorkers during the past winter. Grace, cordiality and unaffect ed hospitality have presided at her as-ein - blages; mere tor nalities have been banished ; people ol culture have really met each other under conditions which did not forbid the presence of wit, good humor and good sense. Indeed, if such reuuions become general iu this country, tbe art ot conversation, in the French sense of the phrase, may some dry come over to America. 1 he Parents of Theodore Parker. Rev. O. B. Frotbingham gives tbe to I low ing portraits of tbe parents of Theodore Parker: This man was born in Lexington, and his ancestors had “the fighting blood in them,” having been in Ihe French and Indi an war, as also at Concord and Bunker Hill. From tbe account of Ins parents we can see a little how he grew to be the man lie was. His father “was a quiet, thoughtful, reading man, of strong sense, of moral worth, lelial-le, honorable; worked every day and all day*; taught his children to sfieak tbe truth; always had a boook in his hand in tbe eveiiing;bo.k» of history, biography, and tiavel engaged him as also speculative philosophy, not physical and moral; he was also fond of Nature, an observer of plants and flowers.” Theodore was ali this and more, for be bad a mottier, a handsome woman, of slight form, flaxen hair, blue eyes, and a singularly delicate complex ion, more nervous than muscular. She lived more an her feeling and imagination; her temperament was poetical; her favorite r al ing was the Bible and hymn book, and jail ad poetry gave her great delight, and her mind was stored with passages of beauty from Eng lish literature, * * * In the moral culture of her children she took great interest, which ' she expressed in wise counsel and sympathy, as occasion came up. Petty Thieves.—Grace Greeuwood writes to the Times iu the following vein from Wash ington : I do not like to have my little aristocratic claims d.spitted.

I don’t like to Irave the strange tact questioned that I am connected alas distant ly 1 on one side with Vice President Aaron Burr, and on the other wi h Major Gen. Benedict Arnold. I am poor, but I am proud. Let his detractors say what they will of him, Aaron Burr never lobbied far a raa:ket-bonse graut, or intrigued lor a sewerage contract. He schemed and plotted tot an empire. If it was a bad game it was a hold one. Let ora tors wreak themselves on tbe crime aud shame of Benedict Arnold, and Voung " America speak their pieces in school, but ha did uot plunder widows and orphans through caved-iu savings banks, or peddle off fraudu lent paving contracts for $12,000, more or less. He planned to rob the young Republic of life and honor; be bargained to sell his country, liberty, the hopes of a cootinent.and threw in bis own soul, for at least a hundred thousand pot nds, a commission in the Brit ish Army, and a great revenge. There was a sort of Satanic grandeur about tbe transac tion. Marriage aud Physiology.—Tbe wri ters on physiology and upon mental disease are doing much toenlighten tbe public as to the responsibilities ol marriage. l>r. Mauds ley writes in this plain (ahd to many it will be shocking language;—“When one consid ers the leckless way in which persons, what ever the defects of their mental and bodily constitutions, otten get married, without sense of responsibility tor tbe miseries which they entail upon those who will be the heirs of their infirmities, without regard, in tact, to anything but their own present gratifica tion, one is driveu to think eituer that man is not the preeminently reasoning and moral animal which he claims to be, or that there is In him an instinct which is deeper than knowlecge. He has persuaded himself, rightly or wrongly, that in his case there is in the feeling of love between the sexes some thing of so sacred and mysterious a chaiacter as to justify disre aril of consequences in marriage. We have ouly to look at the Jatge part which love fills in novels, poetry aud painting, and to consider what a justification ol unreason in life it is held to be, to lealize wbal a hold it has on him in his present state of developments and what a repugnance there would he to quench Us glow by cold words ol reason. At bottom, however, there is no'hing particularly h<>lv about it; on the contrary, it is a passion which man shares with other animals; and when its essential nature and lunction are regarded, we shall nowhere find stronger evidence ol a commu nity of nature between man and animals.” Infant Damnation.—And Professor Swing doesn’t believe in the doctrine of In'ant damnation? It is not enough to say of this that it is startling; it is cruel. There must be some sort of system iu theory. There must be baptism, or regeneration in some shape. And here comes in an infant that never did any go* d to am-body: that never experienced a change of heart; mat never had a heart to speak of perhaps; and that iniant is not to be punished but is to be treated a* if it. bad studied up all these things and had deliberately made up its rniud to be sav.-d. Will Professor Swine tell us frankly if there is any justice in that ? We grow n people have to earn our salvation through much thought and tribulation, a combat with sin Irom conversion to sanctfication; though the process may accompany us to our graves; and here comes in an insignificant iniant and, happening to die, reaches salvation without an effort on its part, without a strugsle, wi b oul a temptation iu the dirtcih-nof evil to lead it astray. Come now, Professor Swine, is that what is called fair shakes? We have no jealousy ol the miserable tittle wretch, of course; but we repeat that there must e sys lemn iu theology. And really we don’t want any of those small bundles of red flannel ami paregoric lo usurp our heaven, picking out all the best places and flyms " they had the best right there.-Rochester -Democrat._______^—— _ .
