The Oossacks are dMided into several
eorps-the CJoslaka of the Don, the
Ooseaks of the Uktah, the Cossack.i
of Gauoasus ep EMach of these dlvi
slons has a chie, who is oalle an Ata
man, and holds the rank of general,
and all the Cossacks of the empire are
united under a single chief, whohas the
title of the "Asaman General," This
latter title always dvoles upon the
her*ltary Ohao DuIke. The Oouack
leothes and equips himself and his uni
form and horse belongs to himself. He
wears a large, round, ow cap, meade of
skin from Astrakas, wide pantaloons
stuffed into his boots, and reaching just
below his knees, the whole covered by
kind of overcoat buttoning on the back
and having three tong laps reaching to
the feet, and fastene(lon the full length.
On his breast, to the left and right,
in vertical cases, herries six cart
ridgesat each side. In his belt he carries
a poniard. A baidriok hangs from his
right shoulder and passes to the left
side where it supports a long saber in a
leather scabbard. On his back, hang
ing from a bandao(eer and wrapped in a
eaas made of goat's skin, he carrles his
rifle, The Cosmaok always carries lb his
hand a whip, with a short lash, which
he calls kijnfa. HIs horse is small and
rather unly, and though he is made of
ood stuff bis form is somewhat angu
lar. To form an idea of the Cossack
saddle, lm ainean ordinary saddle upon
which would be fastened by a strap a
square leather cushion about four inches
hikh. This is the reason that at first
sig&t one is so much surprised to see
this curious looking cavalier perched up
so high on his saddle. He sticks on his
horse's back by sticking his knees into
the animal's sides with all his strength
which gives the legs the appearance of
a pair of pincers. The stirrup is an
equally curious thing. The bottom is
round and thick enough but from thati
up it resembles very much one of those
tin boxes in which preserves are sold.
It has been already said that the Cos
sack's horse is his personal property,
and it may be added that he turns it to
business account by hiring it out.

The statistics published by the Ger
man government of the soldiers wound
ed during the late Franco-Prussian war
present some interesting statistics of
the risk a man runs who goes into
Deducting those killed outright and
those concerning whom information is
wanting, the large percentage of the
wounded who, these statistics show, re
mained with their corps is remark
able. The peroentage t as follows:
Generals, 2T.3; oplonels, 26; inferior
field officers, 65.7; captains, 19.2; sub
alterns, 20.4; surgeons, etc., 41.2;
men,11.1. It will be seen that with
the exception of the lieutenants
and the surgeons, eto., the higher the
rank the larger the proportion who ac
companied the troops. ome light may
be thrown on this fact by bearing in
mind one or two oircumstances. One is
in the present mode of fighting the
higher the rank the shorter the time to
whic an officer is exposed to a close
fire, and that, coneequently, the large
majority of W~O tProm spent bullets
are infitd o e higher grades.
Another is that tn ofioer of high rank
is more a .t to QUM to his command
than one of lower A third is that
the seniors are more able to make ar
rangements for being transported and
nded than the poorer officers. As
the soldier, he is allowed no optio

BRIcHonD, Vs., May 14.--The citizens
of Hanover county, in the neighbor
hood of Atlee's Station, and not far from
the Slashes, where Henry Clay first saw
the light, were thrown into a state of
the greatest consternation and terror by
the appearance of a lioness roaming
about the woods. The animal is re
ported to have been first seen on the
farm of a Mr. Barnes, and so great was
the terror it Infused that the people took
refuge in their homes. It was nextseen
on several adjacent farms, and the
description given of it leaves no doubt
in the minds of Hanoverians that the
strange visitor is a veritable lioness,
which they quppose must have escaped
from one of the many circuses which
have recently passed through this sec
tion of the country.
This morning the citizens assembled
in large numbers, armed to the teeth,
and tracked the animal for a number
of miles through the country almost into
the vicinjty of the Chickahominy river
where it became lost. The tracks left
by the feet of the animal are different
from those of any ever seen by any
citizen of Hanover county. When
standing still the impressions made by
the claws in the soil were over nine
inches apart. It is reported to be mov
ing in the direction of Rlchmond in a
line nearly parallel with the old Tele
graph road, or what is more familiarly
Rnown as the Brooke turnpike. The
latest report from Hanover county states
that aTarge body of eltozens, composed
of cavalry and infantry, were cautiously
pursuing the supposed lioness.
The people in all that section of the
country have carefully housed their
little children and their stock from the
fear that the ferocious beast may pounce
upon them at any moment. To-morrow
the pursuit will be renewed, and in all
probability the roaming lioness if it
should prove to be such an animal, will
be brought to bay.
Ineendlar*y Crlstiatty otn LOng Island.
[41. L.ould epublioan.,
Northfield, Long Island, bad had a
glorious churoh ight, It presented a
true picture of the church mlitant.
The Independent Methodist Church got
tired of its pastor, Bev. Henry Newman
Wright, and the trustees told him he
needn't mind preaching for them any
more. But he refused to quit. The
trustees told him it he came he would
be excluded from the pulpit. He came
on Sunday fought his way to the pulpit
and preached. The next Sunday the
trustees got early inside of the sacred
ediflce and locked the doors on the
preacher. He and his party broke
down the doors and a scene of con
fusion ensued, which it is not worth
while to try to describe. Wright
and his party were beaten, and there
was no preaching that day. The next
Sunday the war was to be renewed, but
the sheriff and a posse were on the
ground to prevent the threatened colli
sion among the muscular Christians.
On Monday Northfield had a fire. The
church burst into flames in several
places and was soon burned down, and
while the church was burning a passer
by saw a fire kindled under the stoop of
Rev. Wright's house. It was a very
promising blaze, but the discoverer,
being a Wright man, informed the
family and the parsonage was saved.
The church building was worth about
$8000. It was probably the cheapest
way to settle the troubles. But the
trustees did not succeed in smoking the
pastor out of the parsonage.

Good Old01 I.h Customs Not Yet Extinet.
The spirit of the good old days has
not quite died out among the gentlemen
and noblemen of Ireland. The young
Marquess of Ormonde, the head of the
Butlers, who has just turned his thir
tieth year. the other day invited the
young Marquess of Ely, who has not
yet reached his thirtieth year, to come
and visit him at Kilkenny Castle. After
the ladies had retired, Lord Ormonde
invited his guest to join the gentle
men with B. and S. and cigars. Lord
Ely declined and went ignominiously
to bed. His host was so much in
furiated at this weak and unworthy
conduct, that he went up.stairs with a
retinue of kerns and gallowglasses, took
Lord Ely out of bed, and had him
brought down stairs and tossed, like
Sancho Panza, in a blanket. The Mar
quess of Ely, thinking this conduct in
hospitable, left Kilkenny Castle early
the next day and the two great houses
of Butler and Loftus are now snarling
at each other like cats which long ago
immortalized the name of Kilkenny by
their internecine valor, The opinion of
unprejudiced outsiders will generally
be that the Marquess of Ely, consider
ing his selfish and disagreeable behavior,
was let off very easily indeed. In the
brave days of Sir Jonah Barrington such
a craven guest would have been turned
over on his head and filled with alter
nate doses of brandy and shot.

How It Spends the Summer Time.
In the swamps of the Gambia, after
they have been dried by the tropical
sun, there are to be found here and there
beneath the surface clods of earth uni
form in shape, and usually about the
size of a man's two fists. These clods
inclose living animals, which have been
led by instinct to hide themselves away
toward the close of the rainy season,
and before the coming of the season of
drouth by burying themselves in the
mud while it is yet soft, and before it had
been hardened by the scorching rays of
the sun. On breaking one of these
lumps of mud it is found to be a sort of
punch or cocoon, with thin walls, and
with thin projections here and there cor
responding to the form of the animal
concealed within. Its larger end is
rounded, but its narrower end is closed
by a slightly convex lid with a narrow
opening in the centre. If the surface of
the cocoon be even gently touched a
pretty loud cry is heard, which Natterer
has compared to the mewing of a cat.
