A writer gives this description of the Prussian needle gun, which will proba bly piny an important part in the com ing battles in Europe: 1 The range of the needlo gun is from 1,21)0 to 1,100 yards. 2 The movements of loading aie ex ecuted with the right band, as follows: An iipwnid stroke nth the palm of the hand against the chamber knob opens the In etch, the cartridge is inserted iu- to tlie cavity of the bun el, a piihh foiward and a downward stroke of the chamber knob with the i ight bund close tho breech, and another push on the neadlo chamber (witu its spiral spring) completes the lotidit.g, and the rills is ready for "Fire." During the move ment the gun is held with the lift band at a "ready." I) T.ii) girtU netor lo.ilj l or re loaded while at "aim" simply because it is impossible to do so. 1. The powder ia not igniled at the rear end of the cartridge, but next to the ball, where the igniting matter is placed v. a kind of socket of papier ma che; and this is what gives more power to the ball, the powder burning from the front (o the rear. 5. The cartiidge is made up ball in fiei.t, ball mk let w ith igniting matter, powder. The shape of the bull resem bles the 'Lupe of a cucumber, and is called long lead(iinj; Wei) G. In cae the needle should break or Und or otherwise become useless a a new one can be inserted in lest than five second. Kacb soldier carries an extra supply of about six needles. It is not sj much the superiority ol the needle gun over other breech-load-eia which has secured, and in all prob ability will ia the present struggle se cure success to the Prussian army, as the thorough education of each individ ual soldier aud his perfect familiarity with bis weapon.

The teal mistake consists iu conceiviug nothing poasihU UIwmu the sexes but Ujvo. People rush into the error that a woman must either bo discourteous to a tuau or iu love with him; the possi bility of her entertaining a proper and healthy Ineudbhip for lifty of tho op posite sex never sums to strike tho world. Now the no called flirt is emi nent fiee from all the charges that are mually alledged against her, She is open aud undisguised, ller affability is kuown and commcntod on from tho fuel that she converse without hesitation and luughs without constraint; she "wears her heart upon bur sleeve there is no couceahueiit, no attempt at reservation, no affectation of reserve Tho really deigning woman is of un other cast. Jler plots are darkly laid and darkly carried out. IW demeanor is staid, her atylo irrepoachublu. " Klit (jives a uiile glture nil luuka down." She encourages, not with tho open invi latiou of an ussault, but with the covert affectation of a retreat. She lends on quietly, but w ithout appearing to do so, and tho world is kept in iguoiance of her plans till her descretioa is rewarded nnd a prize secured.' So anglers catch fish quietly concealed cautiously. I3ut Le who chatters on tho bauk.flaunts his rod and line, and flutters his bril bant hues, fails if ho thinks to net. Flirting is Id marriage w but free trade ia to commerce. By it the value of woman is exhibited, tested, her dipnoi ties known, her temper disu'ayed, and opportunity offered of judgiug what soit of a w ife may probably become Those who assume the prudish air, nnd chide the young lady that does nothing else than mope or turn aside, or sim per "yes" when spoken to, are the pro tectiouists who know their goods can uot compete in tho goueral market, and therefore, strive by artificial means to keep the bidders from an open choice It is good for both Bcxes; the men know what they will marry, the women have looked around them before they decide, There is notbiug moro prejudicial to the happiness of rnari ied life than the ignorance which most girls have of the other sex. To a boardintr-Bchool rirl Signor Fascinati, the singing master, is a god, and elopes with him. After two yeais she finds him a rogue.

Hud she seen more of the man, uho would have known bow shallow bis brains and how deep his debts before sho linked herself to bim, to indure misery for life, or cast bor affections on some fu ture aequiantance, and to incur tho peril of the divorce court. Solon was right when he proposed that the sexes Bhould exercise together in tho gymna sium; a thorough knowledge aud i reer footing between young men and women is one of the greatest safe guards against ill-advised choices. It is often assorted that marriage is tho one object of a woman's life, for which she lays her self out, to achieve which she makes any sucrafico. But marriage is like religion, not an act, but a condition. It is not a thing to be obtained like a victory, once for all, but to bo gone through like a campaign. Hence women who do throw their wholo heart into the singlo fact of get ting married.and regard nothing father full into au error as fatal for this life as tho doctrin of those baptised into the church, but ignoring the life of the Christian, must be for tho next The mere husband-hunters, no doubt exist among fiiits, but we should rather s- p aratethem; the genuine type of a flirt is one who has not at present this ob ject at all in view, who trusts to its coming in the fullness of time, but who makes herself agreeable fur its own sake. As such we are prepared to pro nounce her not only harmless, but the proper specimen of a woman. To one whose rnind is cultivated aright, no amount of freedom, which prudes may call forwardness, or attempt to please, which old maids may stigmatize as man-hunting, can be in tho slightest detrimental; she will be above their sneers and stigmas, uninjured by mis representation, unslandurcd by enty, because, like Godiva, "clothed o'er with chastity."
