TIJE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, JANUARY. 2, 18GG.
A FEW THOUGHTS ON KEYS. Tup uses of keys arc no worthy eubject for the true philosopher's contemplation. Ho looks upon the essence of things; he sera a key in its objective signification; he cares not for ita qualifications as arbiter and agent ot those vain attributes, "mine and thine;" bo takes no in terest In futile distinctions. IIo never lock any thing up, knowing the mutiiity and peril of the act. It addi nothlna to the security of property, but is opt to Inspire others with too strong; an interest in it. "Nothing venture, nothing have," Is his favorite proverb, but with a more enlight ened signification than it generally conveys. Jlc looks upon a key as a myotic entity of diabo lical powers a talisman which can confer on Inert matter, such as wood, iron, brass, leather, etc., tne fnculty of baffling and circumventing jou In the effort to get at your own possessions. This is, in fact, the only sound view of tho subject. When once the mind has recognized this truth every sinele key on your bunch will assume a peculiar physiognomy, even as it pos sesses an Idiosvncrwy. One key will come into t your family with a certain malicious glitter about 3t a detlant swagger and sparkle about it that ioretells the life long struggle jou are destined to have with it. You see at once that It will "rather bend than break," and rather break than open your box, desk, drawer or portfolio, as the case may be. Another wilt wear a dull and frloomy air a "here to-day and gone to-morrow" sort of aspect, as good as an epituph, and much more veracious. House-door keys have been seen of so trucu lent and forbidding a countenance that their very presence in the lock Is supposed to have scared away the prowling depredator; one, in deed, has been known on a remarkable occa sion to bavo "comprehended an auspicious peron," and to have done good service in the capneity of a llfe-pre9ervcr. What familv has not, at times, possessed some meek little tea-caddy, or perhaps cellaret key, which, however facile and etloctual at other times, was liable in any sudden exigency to fall into so painful a state of hamper and em barrassment as no effort of its owner could soothe, or politely feigned indifference on tho part ot visitors allay r What household but has its own legendary reminiscences of keys strangely lost and myste xiously regained f keys that have gone and hvng themselves (for no human agency Is ever traceablo on these occasions) on wrong rings, and wandered madly into wrong pockets ? Im pulsive keys, that have besn found apparently trying o open wrong locks of their own accord, and have broken short off in the effort to recover themselves. Industrious keys, which, on some favorable occasion, have so "improved the shmlng hour" that wax has been found in their wards? Precious keys (of tills and iron safes), each fondly supposed, by its possessor, to be as unique of its kind as the silver decadracbm of Alexander the Great, yet suddenly discovered to huve twin brothers as experienced as themselves in the duties of their oflice T The most careless observer will have been struck by a difference in the outward semblance of keys apparently subjected to the same exter nal influences. The generic tendency of all keys to spontane ous reproduction is perhaps most remarkable in the clavis domestica, or key ot piivate lite, whose prolific qualities may be tested by a simple expe riment. A very small bunch of them loft in any confined spae during a few months' absence on the part of their Owner will be found on his re txrn to have colonized the whole drawer. In fact, single keys should never be left under these conditions for any time; they become family keys in no time. It is supposed that they sprout like asparagus in damp weather, or are produced like button-muBhroonis is a hot-bed. It is a sin gular fact that this reproductive faculty is to be found in no other metallic substance, no wever fashioned; locks never multiply of their own de vices; you may leave any number of sovereigns or half-crowns together, yet never find an addi tional sixpence among them; someiiiiies quite the reverse. The awkward consequences which may arise from this property ol the key of domestic life may bo easily imagined. You may come some day in a transport of anxious haste to the recep tacle ot your more important keys, to seek for (let us say) the key of the medicine-chest in some moment of an exquisitely emotional char acter such as your mlant's having pulped . down its mother's thimble: instead of the do sired key, you find a mob of little nameless, ob-iectlet-s keys, staring you in the face, tripping up your fingers, and maddening you by their mul tiplicity and inane uniformity of aspect. Cu riously enough, these "tadpole" keys, as they may be called, have at first no special physiog nomy; it is only w hen launched into practical existence, and apportioned among the key-holes of real life, that they grow to bo as distinct in appeuruuee, and as diabolical in character, as their elders. Such is tho eRSontial nature of these "shining mischiefs." Trk-K.v, deceitful, capricious never to be trusted out oi your stent, oud full of Irri tating associations when in it; informed by some devilish intelligence thatonlv leads them wrong, and provocative ot evil impulses in others: "with all the rash dexterity of wit" for purposes of annoyance, yet powerless to do even the small good lor wnicu tnty were mienaeo. We cannot avoid taking a side glance at ccr tt.in keys whose qualifications are universally alluded to in polite conversation and refined literature, but which have never yet been col lected, labelled, and catalogued, as they ought to be. We are constantly hearing of "tho key to So and-so's extraordinary conduct," "(he key to a certain person's machinations," "the key of .Lord Homebody's conscience." "the key to every' body's secret thoughts and private affairs." These things, no doubt, have a real existence; we can'iot do without them ; they are an import ant part ot those tattler threadbare "properties" which belong to tbe world's since (as it is gene rally called) and "life's poor play." Hut has anybody seen them ? They ere probably knock ing about in that oisthetic "green-room" of com' inonplace, to which we all know our way; from whence we draw those sla-liiiia: wooden swords and tin bucklers that are so etlective in all artru merits; those spangled coats and jerkins in which our poor thoughts occasionally strut so bravelv; those banners, with grand inscriptions, which look quite as well as opinions, at a little dis tance. There also may be found "all that usef ul lot" of hyperbolic essences The entities of things that are not yet, Subtlest, but surest beings 1 such as the wedge whose thin end is always hetng introduced into our most venerable insti tutionB; the hinge on which momentous affairs habitually turn ; the hypothetical leg which nobody has got to stand on in all arguments; the other side to every question; in short, all the maierun ior sensioie conversation. These things are In constant requisition and daily use; but, like the mysteriously clrcularine- shoe in the game of "hunt the slipper," their existence Is onlv made manifest to the senses bv the sound ing rap with which we shuffle them round in the polite intercourse ot gooa society. It w ould be a good deed to fix. substantiate and classify these useful but volatile possessions. that they may be always at hand when wauted in public speech or private conversation more especially the mystio keys to which we have re- leired. What a Handy ouncn tiiat would be 1 CornJiiU Magazine. Low company Dwurfa. The Higher classes Giants. Thiers, the French statesman, has the "shingles." There have been 3224 suicides by charcoal in Paris from 1824 to 1M60. Dutchmen, are the fittest men for pall bearers; they always feel at home when neur the bier. The Germans in Missouri are inviting their friends in the Faderland to come over and take tip the unoccupied lands in that State, which , yet belong to the Government. It is said there are over six millions of acres of these lands yet to be had at one dollar and a quarter an acre, and much of It is very good. Borne of the tier mans are already on their way, and It is expected that a large increase of the population ol Mis souri will result from this moveiiieut. The Loudon Gospei Mogazine has just com pleted the hundredth year of its existence It Is snid that r.ierstndt's brush lias earned him $ 120,000 in the last three years. He has the finest team in the Central Park, and is buil llng a villa at Irvington, on the Hudson. Rolhormel, like Bierstadt, has bought him self a farm. He has pure hawd eighty acrw in Limerick township, Montgomery county, at $75 per acre. Tho wits of Paris have started the following paracrnplf, which is going the round ot the Wench journals : "Archieological discoveries are Humorous In the present day. An Italian collector, returning Irom Kevpt, has brought back the statue ot no less a personage than Potiphars wife. An Inscription on the bae leaves no doubt as to its authenticity. The features are said to be exceedingly ugly." A correspondent of L' Europe fjivos the fol lowing copious details of the publication of Gustave Dore's illustrated Bible, which he do rived from Madame Maine, wile of the publisher. The edition cost M. Mame, whose celebrated printing press is at Tours, the sum of 24,000 (COO.OOOt.). The two volumes contain 228 plates; lor each design M. Dore received 10 (400f.). The engraving of each piste cost from 40 to 50 (lOOOf. to 1400f.). M. Mame edited the work from mere love of art, and without the least expectation of realizing any benefit therefrom: he merely hoped to recover the money he laid out on it. Ills hopes have already been sur pasped, as 2000 copies have been sold, a great number of which were orders from England and A m erica. AUCTION SALES.
