TIIE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, APRIL 21, I860.
INTERESTING ITEMS.
Eager to Distinguish-. The rrov1denco (R.
I.) Journal asserts, on the authority of a
Washington correspondent, that a Virginia clork
in the Interior Department at Washington,
having, been ordered before the Board lor the
examination of clerks the other day, was asked
this qtif!tinn: "iMr. . nro joii a gram
marian?" . lie answered "Wo, sir, I am a Vir
ginia," A Painful Cafe of Insanity. A man from
Milioid, Mass., named Parnnh, while working at
Hartford, Conn., recently lell in love with a girl,
and beeame irsBiie because her parents would
not let him solicit her hand. He went to Mil Cord,
nearly killed his lather an 1 mother, and fled 10
the woods. The Inhabitants tinned out and
bunted him down, and he Is now in the Retreat
at llartlord.
Chicago a Bettkr Home fob Cholera titan
rnn.ADKi.riiiA. The Chkaao Tribune remarks:
"We have made a carpful computation. Bud
find that each city scavenger h:is only thirty
miles ol street on an avernue to attend to; and
admitting that not another particle of tilth be
deposited, the untied efforts of our numerous
scavengers would clear up everv particle of dirt
in about six years and make ours a clean cliy."J
A Natural Waterfall. The Cleveland
(Ohio) Jieijmler says: "A gentleman ol this eiry
is the happy possessor of a bright little daughter
six months old. When the child was horu the
head was entirely devoid ol hnir, except that.
portion of the. head which, with tidies, Is
coveted by the waterfall, and this portion was
covered with a thick growth of jet-black hair
three inches lone, and precisely in the shape of
the most approved 'waterfall.'"
A Huge Roof. An Immense work ts at pre
sent under way at the entrauce of the Paris ter
minus ot the Western Railway, tu the Ruo St.
Lazare. li is an Iron roof, constructed over the
thirty-one lines of rail which i-t;irt from that
point, and which wns formerly called the Place
de l'Euiope, under which the trains passed
through two stone tunnel?. Tlie tunnel" have
been removed, and a road w ill be constructed
Over the iron root.
Luxury in Paris. The demand for all arti
cles of luxury was never greater in Paris than
it is at present, and shopkeepers are profiting
by it to demand extravagant price". In fact,
some of tlicm admit that if they did not ask hiiin
prices they w ould lose lueir fashionable custom
ers, in many trades tue supoiy is not equal to
the demand," and the deficiency of hands re
auires those employed t work additional
, hours, lor which they ere liberally rename-
1 rated.
Libraries in Italy. Regenerated Italy has
an inquiring mind. The people read, and libra-
rips aif sprinciiig up in all directions. The
total number, three mouths aso, was 210; of
which 1(14 are open lo tne public 46 not so,
These 210 libraries contain 4,14'J,2s7 volumes,
Emiba possesses more than a quarter of these,
Lombardy is the next richest province, havimr
800,010. Tuscany comes next, with 000,000. The
A biu 77. i and Dasilicata are the poorest. The
total means pofsessed by all these libraries
amounts to 740.317 francs, of which sum 87,770
francs are (ierived from endowments belonging
to the institutions; 4Mi,!.Nii iranes represent Gov
eminent grants, 94,404 communal grants, and
82UU provincial grants.
