They are coming out by invitation ot the Philadelphia, (icrmantown, n:d Youna Atnerica clubs of this city, uud the St. George Club, of New York. Hie Intelligence of insects ami Fishes. Truest Mensalt, a new champion for the Iu telligence of Animals, has revived the discus sion in a book lull of facts and inferences wbieb, if not all new, are to the point. We take an example or t vo of what tlie smallest and dullest of them lleas and fiab. can do: There were industrious lleas before our time. Paron Walckenaer (who died in lVo'l), saw with his own eyes, for sixpence, in the l'laee de la Bourse, Taris, four learned liea3 perform the manual exercise, standing upright on their hind legs, with a splinter of wood to serve for a jike. Two otbir fleas dragged a golden carriage, with a third Ilea holding a whip on the box for coachman. Another pair dragged a cannon. The ilea horses were har nessed by a goldon chain fastened to their hind legs, which was never taken olf. They Lad lived iu this way two years aud a half, without any mortality among them, when Walckenaer saw them. They took their meals on their keeper's arm. Their feats were per foimed on a plate of polished glass. When they were sulky and refused to work, the man, instead of whipping them, held a bit of lighted charcoal over their backs, which very soon brought them to their senses. But of what use is cleverness without a heart ? The ilea has strong maternal affec tions. She lays her eggs in the crannies of floors, in the bedding of animal?, aud on babies' night-clothes. When the helpless, transparent lame appear, the mother ilia feeds them as the dove does its young, by dis charging into their mouths the contents of her stomach. (Jrudge her not, therefore, one email dronof blood: for you it is nothing but a llea-bite; for her it is the life of her beloved otn-nrincr. While Tdeadincr. however, for the flea, we cannot do as much for the bug, though he is cifte.l with fuller develoned iutelliceuce. An inquisitive gentleman, wishing to know how the bue became aware of human presence, tried the followiue experiment: Ue got into a bed suspended from the ceiling without any tester, in the middle of au unfurnished room. 1I then nlaced on the floor a bu, which onided. mobablv. bv smell, pondered the means of reaching the bed. After deep re flae.tinn. it climbed UD the wall, travelled straicht across the ceiling to the spot imme diate.lv over the bed. ani then dropped plump on the observer's nose. Was this, or was it not, an aot of intelligence ? The Vish belones to the great Flathead fa milv. The same sort of vlatitude whioh you see in bia Derson doubtless extends to the whole of his character. You have met him somewhere in human shape, one of those pale faced, wifhy-washy gentlemen, whose pas sions have extinguished all heart and feeling You often find them in diplomatic regions, and can't tell whether they are fish or ilesh. 15ut if their mental powers are less developed, their term of existence is more extended They gain in longevity what they lose in w;inntk of teinverauient. Nvertheless. the skill with which the Rthdvlnhkck constructs his nest is now a matter nf nAt.iiT.il historv. Other fishes display an add roan which we acquire only by long and r.nnatftnt Dractice. Oue fellow with a muzzle prolonged into a narrow tube (which he uses as a popgun , prowls about the banks of the tidal rivers. On spying a fly on the water weeds, he slyly swims up till he gets within five or six feet of it. He then Bhoots it with water from hU i.roboscis. never failiuz to bring down his game. A Governor of the hospital at Datavia, doubting the fact, though attested by credible witnesoes. procured some of these fish to wateh their pranks, lie stuck a fly on a pin at ,the end of a stick, aud placed it so &3 to attract their notice. To his great delight, they shot it with thulr water-gans, for which be rewarded them with a treat of inpecta. The pike Las proved" himself not only Intnl. Hgent, but even capable disbelieving it win will of gratitude. "While living at Dnrbam," says Dr. War wick, "I took a walk oun evening iu Lvrl Stamford's paik. Oa reaching a pou i in wble'i fish were kept ready for us, I bbserved ;i flun pike of porue six pounds weight. At ray ap proach be darted aay like au arrow. Iu hi hurry be knocked his head againat an irou hook fixed in a post in th water, fracturing Lis ekull and injuring the optic nerve on on side of bis bead. He appnared to sulfur terri ble pain; be plunged into the mnd, 11 niuderd bitbT and thithur, and at last leapiug out of the water, fell on the bauk. On examiuathiu a portion of the brain was seen protruding tbrongh the fractured ekull. "This I carefully restored to its place, mak ing use of a small silver tonthpi.de to raise the splinters of broken bone. The fish remained quiet during the operation; when it was over be plnnped into the pond. At first, his suffer ing9 appeared to be relieved; but in the course of a few minutes he began rushing right and left until be pain leaped out of the water. "I called the keeper, and with his assist ance applied a bandage to the fracture. That done, we restored him to the pond, and left him to bis fate. Next morning, as soon as I readied the water's edge, the pike swam to meet me quite clofe to the bauk, and laid his bead upon my feet. I thought this an extra ordinary proceeding. Without further delay I examined the wound, ani found it was heal ing nicely. I then strolled for some time by the side of the pond. The fish swam after me, following my steps aud turuiug as I turned. "The following day I brought a few young friends with me to Bte the fish. swam to wards me as before. Little by little lw be came so tame as to come to ray whistle, and eat out of my band. With other persons, on the contrary, he continued as shy and wild as ever." The Trince Imperial, who is said to have remarkable artistic taste, considering his age, recently rode to Thomery, attended by his eqneny, M. liachon, and paid Mad'lle Rosa Bon htur a visit of three hoars, during which he showed the greatest interest iu the specimens of various races of domestio animals which that distinguished lady has collected around her; and with each of which she is as familiar as any of her own farm servants. She never wears her cros3 of the Legion d'Hoineur, but shows to the privileged few whom she admits to ber intimacy the rule tic chambra to which the Impress fastened the ribbon and cross on the day wlieu she unexpectedly drove to Tht mery, and surprised her in her morning costume. Some ingenious blacking-maker has gotten np a championship shining match between ambitious bootblacks of Massachusetts.
