THE DAILY EYKlvlKG TKLKGIlAPM PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, AP1UL 10, 1870. JIM NMIMIY'N riKMJ. atark Tvvnln'at MnMr rplcrr. lie cotK-hed ft froj one tlnf and took Mm home, and Fftid ho cal'lated to fldnonte him; and no ho never lono nothing for three months but sit in hiH hiick yard find lerirn the frog bow to jump. And you 1et he did learn him too. He'd give him little punch bo hind, and the next minute you'd nee that frog whirling in the air like a doughnut soe him turn a mimmcrfiot, find innybe a couple, if he Kt a good Btnrt, and come down Hut-footed mid all right like a cat. He got him np bo in the matter of catching Hies, and kept him in practice ho conHtant, that he'd nail a l'y f very time an far as he could ace him. Smiley unid that all the frog wanted was education, and he could do almont anything, imd I believe him. Why I've Been him But Daniel Webster down here on the ltoor Daniel Webster wan the namo of tho frog and sing out: "Flies, Dan'l, flios," and quicker'n yon could wink ho'd spring np and shake a fly oll'n the counter there and Hop down on the floor Bgain as solid as a gob of mnd, and fall to scratching tho sido of his head with his hind foot as indifferent as if ho hadn't no idee he'd done any mor'n any frog might do. You never seed a frog so modest and straightfor'ard as he was, for all he wan so gifted. And when it came to a square jumping on a dead level, he could got over more ground at one straddle than any animal of his breed yon ever see. Jumping ou m dead level was his strong suit, you under stand, and when it came to that Hinilcy would ante up money to him as long as he had a red. iSmiley was monstrous proud of his frog, and well he might bo, for fellers that had travelled and bin everywhere all said that he laid over every frog that they seed. Well, Smiley kept the beast in a little lat tice boi, and he used to fetch it down town sometimes, and lay for a bet. Once a feller a stronger in camp, he was came across him with his bot, and says: "What might it be you've got in tho box?" And Smiley, Borter indifferent like: "It might be a parrot, or it might be a canary, maybe; but it ain't, it's only just a frog And the feller took it and looked at it care ful, and turned it around this way and that, and says: "H'm so 'tis. Well, what's he good for ?" "Well," Smiley says, easy and careless, "he's good enough for one thing, I should judge he can outjump any frog in Calaveras county." The feller took tho box again and took another long and particular look, and gives it back to Smiley, and says very deliberate: "Well, I don't see no points about that frog that's any better'n any other frog." "Maybe you don't, Smiloy said. "Maybe you understand frogs, and maybe you don't understand 'em; maybe you ain't only an ama teur, as it were. Anyways, I've got my opi nion, and I'll risk forty dollars that ho can outjump any frog in Calaveras county." And the f oiler studied a minute or two, and then says, kinder sad like "Well, I'm only a stranger here, and I ain't got no frog, but if I had a frog I'd bet you." And then Smiley says: "That's all right. That's all right. If you'll hold my box a minute, I'll go and get you a frog;" and bo the feller took the box and put up his forty dollars along with Smiley's and sat down to wait. So he sat there a good while, thinking to hisself, and tuk the frog out and pried open his mouth and took a teaspoon and filled him full of quail shot filled him pretty near up to the chin, and set him on the floor. Smi ley, he went out to the swamp and slopped around in the mud for a long time, and finally he ketebed a frog and fetched him in, and givo him to the feller, and says: "Now. if you are ready, net him alongside of Dan'l with his forepaws just even with Dan'l's, and 1 11 give you the word." Then he says, "one two three jump!" and him and the feller touched up the frogs from be hind, and the new frog hopped off lively, but Dan'l gave a heave, hinted up his shoulder so like a Frenchman, but it wasn't no use; he couldn't budge; he was planted as solid as an anvil, and he couldn't no more stir than if he was anchored out. Smiley was a good deal surprised, and he was disgusted, too, but he didn't have no idea what the mat ter was, of course. The feller took tho money and started away, and when he was going out of tho door he sorter jerked his thumb over his shoulder this way at Daniel, and says, again, very deliberate. "Well, I don't see no other points about that frog that's any better'n any other frog." Smiley stood scratching his hoad and look ing down on Dan'l a long time, and at last he Hays: "I do wonder what in the nation that frog throwed off for; I wonder if there ain't something the matter with him; ho 'pears to look mighty baggy somehow;" and ho ketched Dan'l by the nnpe of the neck, and lifted him up and says, "Why, blame my cat, if ho don't weigh five pounds," and turned him up-side down and he belched out a double handful of shot, and then he see how it was, and he was the maddest man! lie set the frog down and took after that feller, but he never ketched him. The Art ofllelns Ilnppy. IleHry Ward Beecher says: Tho art of being happy lies ia the power of extracting happiness from common things. If we pitch our expectations high, if we are'arrogant in our pretensions, 11 we will noi pe nappy except when our self-love is gratified, our trice stimulated, our vanity fed, or a fierce excitement kindled, then wo shall have but little satisfaction out of this life! Tho whole globe is a museum to those who have eyes to see. llaro plays are unfolded before e very man who can read the drama of life intelli gently. Not go to tho theatres? Wicked to see plavs? Every Btreet is a theatre. One cannot open his eyes without seeing unconscious players. There are "Othellos." and "Hamlets" and "Lears,"and"Falstaffs," "Ophelias," "Rosa linds," and "Juliets" all about us. Midsummer-night dreams are performing in our heavens. Happy? A walk up and down Fulton street, in Brooklyn, is as good as a play. The children, the nurses, the maidens, tho mothers, tho wealthy every-bodiai, tho " queer men, tho unconscious buffoons, the jlrolls, tho earnest nonsense, and the whim sical earnestness of ruen, the shop-windows, the cars, the horses, the carriages bless us there is not half time. enough to enjoy all that is tv. be seen in those things ! Or, if tho mood takes you, go in and talk with the people choosing, of course, fitting times and seasons. Be cheerful yourself , and good natured, and respectful, and every man has a secret for you worth knowing. There ia a schoolmaster waiting for you behind every door. Every shopman has a look of life different from yours. Human nature puts on , M many kinds of foliage as trees do, and is far baiter worth ntudying. Anger w not alike in any two men, nor pride, nor vanity, nor love. Every fool is a special fool, and there In no duplicate. What are trades and nil kinds of Iuihuk'RH but laboratories where tho MtM-rcBl thought is transmuted into none visible fcbnpe of nniller ? What are workmen but translators of mind into matter ? Men are cnltirtg. snitg, filiifg, fitting, joining, polishing. Hut every article is bo much mind condensed into matter. Work is incarnation. Nobody knows a city who only drives along its Kin els. There nre vaults under streets, eelbirs under houses, attics above, shows be hind. At every step men are found tucked awny in Home queer nook, doing unexpected IhiiiRH, themselves odd, and full of entertain ing knowledge. it is kindly sympathy with human life that ennblrB one to secure hnppiness. I'ridd is like fin unsilvc red glass, through w?ich all Bights pasH. leaving no impression. But sympathy, like a mirror, catches everything that lives. The whole world makes pictures for a mirror-heart. The bast of all is, that a kind heart and a keen eye are never within the Bheriff'8 reach. He may sequester your goods, lint he cannot shut up the world or confiscate human life. As long as theso aro left one may defy poverty, neglect of friends, and even, to a degree, misfortune and sick ness, and still find hours brimful every day of innocent and nourishing enjoyment. The Cotton Outlook. 7'Vem the X. Y. Shipping and Commercial Lint. Tho receipts at the ports, though gradually falling off, are still quite high for the season, and from the commencement of tho cotton year, stand about thirty-two per cent, above the corresponding period in lH;8-i;:. Tho highest price of tho season in this market was thirty-five cents for middling upland, in tho early part of September, from which it gra dually declined to twenty-ono and a quarter cents, under tho heavy fall in the gold pre mium. From that point there has boon a recovery of about two cents, tho current quotation being twenty-three and a half cents. Tho popular estimates of the current crop are two and three quarters to three millions of bales, but should the receipts during tho next three or four weeks fall off as heavily as anticipated by many, some modification from the top esti mate is not improbable. The market during the last fortnight has derived considerable firmness from the unexpected strong tone at Liverpool, which appears to have resulted from tardy arrivals of the Indian staple, and moderate stocks. As to the course of prices during the next few months, there is, as usual, a diversity of views, though tho popu lar opinion seems to be that until there shall bo a full year'B supply, and a considerable augmentation of reserve to carry over to tho beginning of another year, for all tho manu facturing world, a material permanent de cline is not probable. Much, however, will depend upon tho condition of industries now at rather a low ebb on both sides of the Atlantic. The planting season at the South is now at hand, and there is every indication that an increased breadth ..of land will be planted under tho stimulus of good prices. Tho cost of producing cotton under the present system, in the hands of good managing planters, it is said does not exceed fifteen cents per pound; many of them, in a successful crop like this one, make it for twelve cents, including in terest on their investment, at current value. As a price equal to twenty cents leaves a pro fit beyond that afforded by any other branch of agricultural industry, the bonthern plan ters will be very apt to exert tnemseives to the utmost to get in a large area. Meanwhile the English cotton manufac turers are making the most persistent efforts to increase the supply in British India, in order to successfully compete with tho United States. The maximum exporting power of India, with high prices, is stated by a leading English authority at 1,900,000 bales; but now that the impediments which havo for soven or eight years stood between the foreign spinner and his normal source of supply aro gradually being removed, a point has proba bly been reached from which the Indian culture will retrogrado, for it is a conceded fact that under a moderate scale of prices that country cannot compete. As to quality, it is simply a physical impossibility lor tho Indian cultivator to grow cotton at all comparable with ours. The Indian staple is invariably short, harsh, and troublesome in tho processes ot machinery. This is the indigenous sort. Attempts havo been made to obviate the stubborn difficulty by the importation and naturalization of American seed. Even then tho produce, though superior to the native one, is largely behind that in our Southern States. In the second year this degeneracy increases; and soon the growth is as unacceptable as the Surat. In fact, foreign manufacturers have no reliable sources but this country. The dependence may be galling, but it is unavoidable. Our climate and soil are fitted by nature to produce that pecu liar variety of raw material which cannot be dispensed with in textile fabrics used for wearing apparel. All this has long boon known, and if we now allude to facts so patent, it is because of tho renewed efforts in a comparative hopeless rivalry. Wo Bhall not only reach the ante bcUum production of cotton, within a very few years, but tho Eng lish spinners will not unlikely experience an additional shock from the transfer of British machinery and operatives to American soil, where the conditions for manufacturing are superior to any other part of the world. Air. Cobden's significant utterance that Britiah Indo "cotton-growers must be prepared for a revival of American industry, ana the com petition of the world," Is now in a fair way for a full realization. French School-Hoy. Our Freneh cousins have been having trou ble of late with thoir school-boys. Those in genuous youths, whom one may observe strutting about the Paris boulevards of a Sunday afternoon, with military kepis on their heads, and tunics generally too small for them, have been breaking out into revolt in diflerent lyceen 01 tbe capital ana pro vinces; and the papers have been entertain inc with lively accounts of tho obstreperous doings of tho young gentlemen. This is not very amusing for the new Minister of Publio Instruction, M. Segris; for ahen there aro schelastio riots the "Grand Master of tho University" has usually a fine amount of work on his hands in trying to ascertain who are most to blame the boys for rebellinc?, the masters for driving the boys to rebel lion, or tho red tapo rules of 1-rench Bchool management under which revolts are bo frequent and ministerial interventions bo often necessary. 11 seems mat uunug mo last half-year there have been as many as nine insurrections in Imperial lycecs tho towns which havo suffered being Paris (two insur rections), Douai, Lille, Brest, Nantes, Mar seilles, Privas, and Nevers. Tho causes of the outbreaks have been various. In one case it was the bad quality of tho food; in two others, the unpopularity of tho head-master; in another, the attempt to abolish the week's holiday at Christmas; in another, again, some unpleasant business in connection with reli gious observances, which it was thought to en- force by means of punishments; and in the liv.t, that of Kevers, the arbitrary evpulsion of gome juvenile Had icals who had organized a subscription for tho monument to Victor Noir. In every instance tho complexion nfsumcd by the rebellion has been the same. French boys are rot pnrtiimlnrly remarkable for practical sense, aud appear to take pattern by some of their elders in their love for ex travagant demonstrations. When thy are dissatisfied they rise aud sin the "Marseil laise" (it is very curious to hear a French lad shout, "Qu'nn sang iiupur nbrouve nos Billons!" apropos of tough beef). They smash desks and fotms, Biug '"Vivo Itoche fort !" open the school-gates, spread riotous and bawling through the streets, aro solemnly expelled in a body, and finally readmitted again, with tho exception of tun or a dozen of the ringleaders, sacrificed as scapogoati for the sins of the rest.
