The Tate of Benjamin P. Cuun.
His name was Benjamin I'.Gnnn.and ho was tbe agent for in insurance company. He camo round to my office fourteen timed in one morning to see if he could not persuade mo to take out a life insurance policy in his company. He used to waylay me on the street, at church, in my own boose, and bore me about that policy. If I went to the opera, Gnnn would buy the seat next to me, and sit there the whole evening, talking ebaut sadden death and the adrantagea of the ten-year plan. If I got into a street car, Gunn would come rushing in at the next corner, and sit by my side and drag out a lot or mortality tables, and begin to explain how I could beat his com pany out of a fortune. If I sat down to a dinner at a restaurant, op would cone Gunn, and, seizing the chair next to me, be would tell a cheering anecdoto about a man who insured in his com pany for 50,000 only last week, and was buried yesterday. If I attended the funeral of a de parted friend, and wept as tley threw the earth upon Lis coffin, I would hear a whisper, and turning around, there would be the indomitable Benjamin P. Gunn, bursting to say : " Poor Smith 1 Knew him well. Insured for ten thousand in our company. Let mo take your name. Shall I?" lie followed me everywhere ; until at last I got bo sick of Gunn's persecutions that I left town suddenly, and bid myself in a secluded country Tillage, hoping to get rid or him. At the end or two weeks I returned, reaching home at 1 in tbe morning. I had hardly got into bed before there was a ring at tho door bell. I looked out, and thero was Gunn, with another person! Ho asked me if Max Adler was at home. I said I was the man. Gunn then obscrred that he ex pected my return, and thought he would call around about that insuranco policy, lis said he tad the doctor, with him, and if I would come down he would take my name and hare mo ex amined immediately. I was too indignant to reply. I shut the window with a slam, and went to bed again. After breakfast in the morning I opened the frost door, and there was Gnnn sit ting on the steps with his doctor, waiting for me. He had been there all night. As I came out they seized me, and tried to undress me there on the pavement, in order to examine me. I re treated and locked myself up in the garret, with orders to admit nobody to the house until I came downstairs. But Gunn wouldn't bo baffled. He actually rented tho houso next door, and stationed himself in tho garret adjoining mine. Ahen he got fixed he spent bis time pounding on the par tition and crying, " Hallo! Adlcrl Adler, I say! How about that that policy? 'Want to take her out now?" And then he would tell me some anecdotes about men who were cut off immedi ately after paying tbe first premium. But I paid no attention to him and made no noise. Then there was silence for awhile. Suddenly, one morning, the trap-door or my garret was wrenched off, and, on looking up, I saw Gunn, with the doctor and a crowbar, and a lot or death rates, coming down tho ladder at me. I fled from tho house to the Presbyterian church closo by, and paid the sexton $20 to let me climb up to the point of tbe steeple and sit astride of the ball. I promised him 20 more if he would exclude everybody from that steeplo Tor a week. Onco safely on the ball, 309 feet from tho earth, I made myself comfortable with the thought that I bad Gunn at a disadvantage, and I determined to beat him finally if I had to stay there a month. About an hour afterwards, while I was looking nt the superb view of the west, I heard a rustling around on tho other side of the steeple. I looked around, and there was Benjamin P. Gunn creeping up the sido of that spire in n balloon, in which was the doctor and the tabular estimates or tbo losses or his company from the Tontine system. As soon as Gnnn reached tbe ball, he threw his grappling iron into tho shingles or the The 3111k Cure. Some or our physicians have discovered, or borrowed, a new mode of cure lately. Whatever bis disease, the patient is put upon a diet solely of milk. All kinds of nutriment belonging to maturer nourishment are absolutely forsworn, and the body goes back to its primal nourishment; and, consequently, it is claimed, is born again into fresh strength and beauty. A certain Jer seyman, who, in prosecution or this plan, drank over 400 gallons or buttermilk in the last year, is reported to have-risen a young Autinous from his grosser self, like the eagle which renews her youth. Now, why not carry out tho principle into manners and morals? What if the milk cure was tried at Washington, and our legislators modeled their deliberations for a week or two after the fashion or ignorant savages ? "The aborigines," says Hildreth, " though subject to violent gusts of passion, wore, on all public occa sions, a grave, reserved aspect, and exercised s strict command over their Teeling3 with a dignity and deoorum akin to that or the ancient Greeks. In their councils, precedence and the most marked deference were given to seniority, al though a grave respect was paid to tbo words or even tbe youngest and the most insignificant.' The barbarous chiefs bad not learned how to drown the voice or a speaker opposed to them by nodding their heads together with forced cacklo of gossip and laughter; did not. greet each other in tbe grand council or tbe nation as shameless blackguards and scoundrels ; and never, we imagine, forgot the respect duo to their own manhood so far as to advert to the arguments of. a gray-headed old man from whom they dissented as " the piping and whining or imbecile and un- honored old age." Would it be worth while to suggest the milk cure to our fashionable women ? What ir tley went back to tho primeval ways of their great grandmothers ? If our young ladies were taught to control a household or servants with firmness, judgment, and sweet temper, as well as to bake, brew, churn, and sweep, themselves, and to weavo their own chest roll ot dainty linen Tor " plenish ing " before they were allowed to marry, would they find it as wholesome training as the present ono of bed till noon, flirting, waltzes, and cham nogne, till after midnight? Which or the two would most probably fit them with strong, sweet breathed bodies and pure souls Tor their new duties or wirehood and maternity ? Thero are tho newspapers, too. The first English daily journals were written by tho first scholars in the Kingdom, lor tbo eyes of gentle men and ladie3. Thev attacked the manners and habiU or a licentious court, with a pure morality, a lorco and keenness or wit, which dealt mortal blows to its weakness and corruption. They remain still to be studied as specimens or the finest satire and humor, and the most exquisite English in tho language. Would it be worth while for one or our monster journals, reeking with the records of adultery anil crime, compiled to cater to the taste or Keddy the Blacksmith, and his kinsfolks in higher circles, to try a milk cure Each as this ? What would such a remedy do for the religions world ? Tho first messengers of Christ went out without purse or scrip, or a second coat, to preach the good tidings to the poor. The most popular messengers now-a-days draw their salaries by the tens of thousands, and deliver their messages in temples which cost (or are in debt) half a million of dollars. The poor remain outside ; but, as one of these modern apostles said tho other day, " Tho God forsaken rich have tho gospel preached to them, and it is high time they were attended to." There is a good deal or shrewd wisdom in that view or the case. Yet it would not be amiss, perhaps, ir the milk euro was taken into these costly folds and tried on both shepherds and sheep. j' T.

A correspondent or tbo London Times writing from Paris under date of April 25th, rays : Tho Versailles Government secured the funds in the public offices of Paris by an ingenious stratagem. These funds, which amounted to $15,000,000, in specie, bonds, and bank-bills, were placed in a wagon used for conveying bread and potatoes from the Charity Hospital to tho Alms House at Issy. Tho evening before at tempting to pass this vehicle through the Issy gate a similar one was sent by the hospital man ager by way of trial, and to disarm suspicion. The guard allowed it to pass, while, at tho same time, the driver secured a pass for tbe next day, written in the usual unofficial style of tho Com mune : "Open the gate, even ir thero are orders I to keep it closed." Xext day the wagon, con taining tho treasure hidden under sacks or pota toes and loaves or bread, arrived at tho Eamo gate, and was stopped, despite the written order, Tbe guard who gave the pass was away, and his successor would not respect it. In virtue or his right or inspection, he proceeded to open tho door or the wagon, and having overturned some or tbe sacks, was about to remove those which covered the treasure, when a lieutenant who com manded tho post arrived, and called out : "I knoiv all about the cart ; let it pass." Tho guard let go the sacks, closed tho door, and the wagon pos ed out. In un hour and a half later, tho $15, 000,000 were safe in Versailles. Tbo same even ing tho Communo learned all, and proclaimed that they were robbed. They sent orders to Is sy to arrest tho manager or the hospital,-but he had followed the millions which he had helped to secure. Test or Actual Death. A positive method by which real death may be distinguished readily from that which is apparent only has been for a long timo a desideratum, and prizes of consider able value have at various times been offered for the announcement of some unerring test to de termine between tho two. Among others pro posed for this purpose is the application of a few drops of bella donna to the eye. If life be pres ent, in a few moments n dilatation of tbo pupil will bo observed, very easily noted io comparison with tbo other eye, which ha3 not been so treated. This is so independent or the condition of the eyo, that it is even observable in caso of com mon amaurosis or paralysis, and is appreciable when all tne ciliary nerves bavo been cut ; and it may even bo noted upon an eye that has been re moved from the orbit as long as muscular con tractility remains. AVhenever, therefore, its ap plication produces no effect whatever upon tho eye, we may assume that muscular contractility has ceased, and, consequently, that life has entire- passed from the body. A precaution is, how ever, necessary in cases where dilatation ha3 al ready taken place to the full possibility of tho iris, which sometimes occurs in a case of appar ent death, particularly when caused by the use of belladonna. A couriter-action is therefore nec essary in this instance, which is to be effected by mcan3 or tho Calabar bean, which, ir life bo pres ent, will cause tho pupil to contract. Academt or SciEsccs.-Bjaro sent one of its staff to the Academy of Sciences. Bear him: The regular semi-monthly meeting of the Califor nia Academy of Sciences was held at the rooms of the Association, on Monday, Dr. Mopu presiding. Professor Chubtox presented a hair from Emperor Norton's nose, and read an essay on naso-crlniferous growths. A horned clam, from Bait Moon Bay, was presented by Mr. 'Wlnant, of the Pacific Oyster Sa loon, and gave rise to an animated discussion. Pro fessor Sbupplng brought under tie notice of the Academy a box of pills which ho declared were the genuine Summerilcld, and generously proposed that the Academy should take them In hand, sell them fora million dollars, and retain half for their trouble. 1)1. Jowles urged that the Academy should require proof of the pills belnc the original Summerficld, before entertaining the proposition. Professor Shopping asked If Dr. Jowles wished to sec the Bay ot San Eranclsco set on tire, and tbe Qnecn City of the Taclflc destroyed. If the pills were taken at all, tbey were to be Uken not for the purpose of being used, but to promt their being used. If the pills were once tried, there was no telling what terrible results might follow. The moisture in the atmosphere would be decomposed and Igulte. and the fearful spectacle of a world in flames would ensue. These pills were not pills to be trifled or tampered with, and he was astonished at Dr. Jowles' proposition. The Academy decided that It was not at present prepared to negotiate for Professor Shupplng'a pills, but wonld consider of the matter. Dr. Jowles begged that the Professor would keep the pills dry, and Professor Shopping said he didn't care a darn whether they got damp or not; the Academy had the chance to buy now, or leave It alone and take the consequences. A bunch of wild flowers, gathered by Master William Jackson Lincoln Chute, yonngest son of Professor Thompson Leonldas Chute, J. K. L. F. It. J. K., and Kungo of the Grand Lodge of Elautorlus Kobongs In Oakland, was received, and the thanks of the Academy tendered, to the donor. An attempt was made to levy an assessment of fifteen ccuts on each member of tho Academy, for the purpose of paying the gas bill, and the meeting broke up in a row. MERC HANDISE, &C. MERCHANDISE, &C.

It appears that in an agricultural essay on the culture of tobacco, Sir. Greeley asserted that fine cat -would not rip en well unless the tin foil was stripped from the growing buds parly in the Spring, and that plug tobacco ought to be knocked off the trees with clubs instead of being picked by hand.

Charles D. Warner. Street Cae Maxims. The Boston Transcript publishes a list of maxims for tho street car, chiefly intended for ladies. Here is a sample: "When the car is full, settlo yourself in a stand ing attitude as if it wa3 one of luxury : but ir a gentleman offers you his seat, accept or decline it no matter which with an air of gratitude, whether you feel pleasantly about it, or the re verse. 'Assamo a virtue if you have it not.' Perhaps the next timo you will really be thank ful. The graces grow by cultivation." Another or tho maxims is as follows : "If a lady enters tho car with whom you aro not acquainted, which happens not nnrrequently in large towns avoid staring at her as if for tho purpose of dis covering whether she may not be a native or the Sandwich Islands, and do not discuss her cloth ing more than is absolutely necessary with your companion. Jn fact, endeavor to make tho dis tinction but slight between your acquaintances and strangers. Thero is a certain hospitality of tho car which every passenger should extend to every other.,' As IxrjiAS's WoitD op noxorc A gentleman re cently from Texas, relates an extraordinary occur- aence which took place a short time since in the In diau Nation. A Chocktaw Indian having committed a willful murder, was arrested, tried and sentenced to be shot. He asked for twenty days in which to prepare and visit bis friends, Riving his word of hon or as a "brave" to return at the appointed time, and was allowed to go forth without guard or ball. At the expiration of twenty days according to appoint ment, the hour of execution arrived, and the Indian, true to bis word at the very hour and min ute galloped np in company with three of his sisters and three brothers to the place where the sentence was to be carried out, all appearing as cheerful as though they had come to a frolic The coffin was then brought on the ground, when tome one remark cd that It was too small, upon which the brothers of the doomed man advised him to lie down In it to sec If it was the proper size, which he cheerfully did and laughing said "It fits all right." Thecrowd in the meanwhile appeared to be In the most cheer fal spirits, and cracked jokes and laughed. At last, when all was ready, the doomed man was told to sit on tbe ground when a handkerchief was placed ovcr bis eyes by one of his sisters. The sberlfThcId one hand while one of the brothers held the other; tbe deputy sheriff then stood up in an old bouse about ten steps In front of tbe condemned with a rifle, but from some cause the rifle went offaccldent ally, the bullet passing up through the roof of the house. The Indian, believing he was shot, drew himself np and shuddered, but did not speak or move from the spot. A black mark was then made with spittle and powder over the Indian's heart by his brother, while tbe deputy sheriff reloaded his rifle, and at a given sjgnal took aim and fired, pierc ing the centre of the mark. The Indian, with a few struggles, fell back dead, the brother and sheriff still holding his bands. No one seemed the least effected but the mother of the doomed maD, who after shedding some tears was told by ono of her sons to "shut up," that all was ovcr. A PtAST THAT IS KEPOETED TO CCRE CAXCEK. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Gazette writes to that paper: "Some months ago Colonel Capron, Commissioner of Agriculture, re ceived from Ecuador a package of roots and bark of a shrub or tree called Cundcrango, which is found growing in abundance in Ecuador, and it is believed also in other South American States. Cundtranga was presented as a specific for that heretofore sup posed to be incarable and deadly disease, cancer. The Commissioner distributed this plant among our leading medical professors and physicians. One of these. Dr. B. W. Bliss, has been applying Cunderango with extraordinary and unlooked-for snccess, and in twenty days he has almost entirely cured the mother of Vice President Colfax and other patients who are afflicted with cancer. A Boston physician of emin ence, whose wife is afflicted with cancer, sends for the Cunderango, and orders from medical men In New Tork have been received, but It is exhausted except what Is necessary for patients of Dr. Bliss now using 1L Dr. Keene, partner of Dr. Bliss, has sailed for South America to obtain an invoice of Cunderango immediately and forward It to this citT," and to make himself acquainted with 'the history and peculiarities of the plant The commissioner of agriculture has sent the root to various portions of the United States where the climate is favorable for propagation. Qceex Victoria gets $2,200,000 a year salarr, and manages by strict economy to get along, and has entered upon the thirty-fifth year of her reign. Scuamtl, popularly knowu as a Circassian chief, was born in the year 1797, at the Aoul of Himry, In the north ol the Caucassian district of Daghestan. From his earliest years he was ambitious and eager to compete In athletic sports and trials of skill. His future character 6ccms to have been determined by the instructions he received from a teacher named Dschcllal-Eden. From hira Schamyl learned the doctrine of Sufeyism, which, dissatisfied with the barren letter of the Koran, appeals to human con sclousncss and seeks to Inculcate nobler hopes than a gross Mahommedan paradise can fulfil. When Schamyl first took part in bis country's defense in lS2i, the leader of the warlike Lcsghians was KasI Mollah. From that time until his capture In 1859. Schamjl became the most troublcsomo enemy tho Knsslans had to encounter In their constant irrup tions Into Circassia. The exploits attributed to blm would fill a volume. In 1S31 In a battle with the Itusslans, the JInrids under Kasi Mollah were slain almost to a man, and Schamjl, pierced by a ball, lay at his leader's feet; but he nevertheless escaped iu time to present himself at the first meeting of the dlscomflttcd tribes after the battle. In 1830 when his leader fell the victim of a cunsplracy, Schamjl was chosen chief. Year after year he baffled the efforts of the Knsslans, who opposed him In Tast forces, and It was not until after the Crimean war that they were able to break down (lie power of tbe Circassians. In 1837-5?, they obtained several im- portant victories ovcr the mountaineers, and made themselves masters of the defilu which cut off com munication between Vedcni, the residence or Scha myl and the pasture grounds of the Tchctchenia. On the 7th of September, 1S59, Schamyl, with his son, was captured by the Russians, who from that time treated their prisoner with great respect. He resided in Moscow and had an establishment be fitting his former station and character. pOTTOIf and Hemp Duck, from O to 10, HEMP & MANILA CORDAGE, ALL SIZES, HEMP AND COTTON TWINE, Spunyarn, Marline, Ilonsline, Selling Staff, Catting Falls, While.

Unobserved, while the' dance was going on, he slipped out of tbe house, moved tho curb a few feet beyond the well, and awaited the result. Presently, ont came one of the dancers, and pluiup into the well be went. Blowing and puffing he came up to the top and exclaimed, "By golly I who morcd that well since I'se ont here last?" As old lady recently In a court before which she was brought as a witness, when asked to take oQ her bonnet, obstinately refused to do so, saying. "There's no law compelling a woman to take on her bonnet." "Ob," Imprudently replied one of the judges, "you know tho law, do you? Perhaps you would Iikoto come up and sit here and teach us." " No, thank yon sir," said the woman, tartly, "there are enough old women there now." Hundred Thousand I Surplus, One Million Five Hundred Thousand, beyond what is required for reserve.

" Why," said he, " the only time my father ever whipped me was for telling the truth." "Well," retorted tho doctor, "it cured you of It, didn't itl" As four or five darkies were passing an agricul tural implement store, lately, one of them, pointing to a cultivator, said: "A man can jist sit on dat thing and ride while he is plowing.'" "Golly," replied one of the others, "the rascals was too sharp to think of dat 'forc.de .nigger was free." The Cleveland JUindealrr tells of a woman there who was made a widow oa Sunday, was a mourner on Monday; was married on Tuesday, was the re cipient of a surprise party on Wednesday evening, and got out of the county before Wednesday morning. It is not high crimes, such as robbery and murder, which destroy the peace of society. The village gossip and family quarrels, jealousies, meddle someness and tattling, arc the worms that cat into all social happiness.
