A .APPY DREAM.
[aleluad Leader.] One of the happiest men that ever Journeyed a hundred miles from Miohl ran took the Toledo Ep.eee on Batur ay, at Famont bound fr Toledo and hs home in g] an. He told a Srtrane story, of woh the following is he s-abstnee: olno weeks sinoe, while at home in ha he re to ret after a hard day's wor and aIll wl p, dreamt dream. He ap t ave taken a long Journey from "home." Whoe . bad- been loated for tean an tha soarllost sight of, an d tought of matrimony, aU yntt M Mohiganders who re lt - h neighborhood had used their best ea. deavors to induce ila to makepropo sale for their hanands which they were epred to ooept r the utsal amount or hesitation, But our friend was as bItMt and Soblivious to their advanoes as alr to .a charitable petition* had no dore idea of matrimony, to use his own expression, than a Hottentot. And so feeling he tumbled into bed, and as we said befoe, was soon lathe landof dreams. In that dream a vision appeared unto him. He a~rrived at a place in Ohio whioh was called Fremont. Itappearedthat soon after his Islval in that place he formed athe ..itance of a young lady, and thst aerna short but happy eourthip, he married her and returned.to his home an Michigan where he became wealthy, IM hpl[, and raded4s numerous ly of children, and in time trotted grandohildren upon, his knee. He nen awoke; it was roq dayljght, and his mother was at his door callng him down to breakfast At the breakfast table he related his dream to the old lady and shabe was deeply im Slsed. nb it. He told hler it was latantion to at once seek out the beautiful tursof whom he dreamt, d the old Jly believing there was a e anpr tdeno it , and bei. also in dreams, advised him I s means to go nd A'ind her ihe OOld, and it be oovl4n't-f4 , to bri bk an Ohio girl an ywy. f now," said she, ' "th+b h gio rls ute smart." 8o, ohln pelked up ls Ie wardrobe and too the first train tfor Ohio and lost no time in ing Fremon·..

This is one of the most strange .trluonual affairs we have ever "een oitead of and doubt if its .qual has S.r been in print. It is a proof that dreams ofttimes foreshadow 'oomlng • ents. We often hear of men dreamlng of sudden deaths, and dying; but we do Snot know of a case Wthere the incident and characters were depicted and ful '" f alled as in the present instance, If 0is ~ 1rael ecae on record we 4aimld lke to hear it. IMPROVEn PIt LIAVIMS, Vaeat.M and seaside Costumes. As the time is fast approaching that -everybody seeks a vacation,the thoughts ltr divided between the place to go and necessaky wardrobe. Very many "bg for the novelties of a fashionable t~ aring-piace; but the fact is that dress rules at such places, and unless one can Ieep up fully with the fanoles So the hour, they are made to feel un aomfortable, and this fact deters many i:tm seeking sue recreation. SThere are many lovely places on the ore, or on the bank of Bome inland . not yet known to fame, where 1 parties can find the best of ao mmodations at reasonable prices, and ccwsr ooording to their means. S~The linen costume of former seasons rs not done away with, as many sup : e, from the rage for bunting. ,h, " bl Linen has its admirers, and Ilo. 'ltraveling with children readlly see the eoeseusity of something that can be . calaly washed and laundried, for these ., e k. folke are the most restiess bodies f tvelng one can imagine, and mam nia's dress usually gets a fair share of the edibles they feel in constant need of. Linens are madequite tastefully, and not spoiled by the unnecessary pleat In gsand puffing. of other seasons. l de pleating, well stitched upon the Sirt, the usual mode of trimming the lower skirt, although there are many w~ho prefer the piped bands, say three in number, and to our mind they are quite aasenteel. Then the over-skirt, which is long, round and slightly loop . at the back, has either a bias band or is trimmed with several rows of narrow blue or brown braid. These braids wash aniely and they always have a look of :' wneess. . The ues are better to be half and if simply flnhed with braid, have a more quiet. f? ktravel than as 1.! edged ith .points, or a ruffle. SThe u and skirt are qulte as ftea seen as the three pieces, and very mangy order atape as a finishing wr.tP. There are many styles of ulsters an d circles gotten up for travel. Some art' Sptetty, some hideous. tdsoften get these long ulsters of , lase made double-breasted, and then | Sone of their best costumes under, I tave so much luggage. This is al d idea, so far as the skirt is con- I , for to carry a trimmed skirt re quires plenty of room. So if one puts the irt, then takes the basque or polonaise carefully folding every part of it.slatgat 1ll the trimming is f.tst tepet Pl t n u -n large nalkin,ý it t igot tO an' place in safety. If no better- ffers, tat in be tween your shawl and bweer-proof i the etep. By the way, we do wonder if any one ventures to travel now-adars without a gossamer water-proof wras. These are water-proof, indeed, and when 'not in use can be carFied in as small omp ao a roll of mtusle. Now that 6e pile of these useful weather bg~naut bleen redued to a rason cal e , o btbless the demand for W$5l 60 and $715. the , qeations about does not come in gures or stripes. only the one solid color in each. There are different hades of Olive, brown, gray, green, and toasimon. _Th pale oream trimmed with pale blue, or the blue trimmed with cream, or either color, trimmed • with black, make a most lovely seaside dinner-cos tume. The delicate shade of gray is trimmedwith galloon of white ground, with gray centre. One oreaO color that we noticed had pinia of eatdinal, makling a most ovely costume for a brunette. The breton is a favorite style for bunting and in this case, trimmed plentifully with pearl buttons and se quins, it Joses all claim to either being claim or eheap. it is a settled fact that every fashion able costume is finished with a trap. To be sure, it may be a mere tiny affair of lace and ribbon, still it receives all the dignified appellation of wrap, with out its appendages of warmth and wetight. Many grenadine and tamise costumes are made en suite-a pretty mantilla, pointed or scalloped to form three points In the back And brought forward in seart ends. Tie carelessly at the bottom of the waist in front. This can be trimmed with French laoe, and if the bright grenadine galloon is used that was mentioned last week, to head it, the effect is bright-and pretty. In under-garments this season the styles are pretty, and underclothing was never c~eaper. The' Oetiloon, of which description has been given and several patterns sent out;li steadily aning in favor an..dlesb wlo-weirt r em say they will never return to the old style of two gar naents. This garment saves the extra length of the chemise, the band of the drawers and extra fullness around the walst, and whellola.ddried by the dozen mtist save thp price of at least two or three pieces eaoh Week. And that in itself is worth consideraMon for sales-ladiesand others, employed at salaries where every Item counts heavily. Thus, for these garmnents made, they demana an excessive price. But they must in time come down to a reasonable figure, compared with the two articles as now made. We, have, within the week, noticed several breton costumes in black silk some richly embroidered in black and others trimmed with Oriental galloon, in bright olors. - A novel Ide o the weekis sleeveless jackets, loose and straight worn with polonaltes for the street.

The reiults of a great num ber of experiments are held to sustain the following facts: Speaking in a low, monotonous tone close to the ears of a sleeper will almost invariably cause him to dream of terrible adventures on wa ter, such as shipwreck 'and drowning. Singing or playing ,on musical instru ments induces dreams of dead friends, funerals and the like. Worrisome dreams are often caused by sleeping with the arms over the head. Mr. Lewis does not believe that somnambu lism is often caused by weight of trou ble on the mind, and he combats the idea that any great proportion of dreams are the result of making trouble. He thus describes experiments showing that the, are but flashes across the brain: 'Whilts nue watched a sleeper and another the clock a third loudly slammed. the blind of a window about ten feet away. The effect was almost instantaneous. The man sprang up at the sound, looked around in alarm, and then exclaimed: "Thank God that it was only.a dream." He had dreamed of being on a crowded street in front of a building which the crowd declared unsafe, but still lingered near it. The dreamer tried to elbow his way along, but the people jeered and laughed at him and held him there. Hebegged and entreated coaxed and threatened, but they held him there, and the build ing toppled over on him, the shock breaking his dream. It seemed certain to us that he had dreamed the entire dream in a second, while the time seem ed a long half hour to him ; but to place the question beyond dispute we in dulged in seven or eight different ex periments. Sometimes we let a weight fall to the floor, or struck a chair with a stick, and again we slammed the blind. In every instance the sleeper dreamed of some startling adventure, and awoke with a start; and no dream lasted over a minute. Curiosities of Commerce. Among the queer things of commerce is the fact that beef, copper and so many other commodities which are sent from the United States to England, .sell for lower prices in England than they do here. The facts in regard to copper are peculiar. The exportation now amounts to 16,000,000 pounds annually, and the product sells in London from 2k to 5 cents a pound cheaper than here. If this can be done, there is no need of maintaining the duty of 5 cents a pound on copper, for this industry is evidently able to take care of itself. To maintain the duty is to abuse protection.

COLLtQllI AND THE CONFEDERACY. Piofessers as seerutlin Omerers-s-tu. dents Who Dropped Nooks and Took Up Knapsacks. [ovy. Dr. Jones in Philadelphia Weekly Times.: The colleges of the South were de. sorted, and professors and students alike enlisted. The "learned professions' were suspended, and the offloes.abandor. ed for the camp. The hum of the work. shop ceased, the plow was left in the furrow the ledger was left unposted, in many instanoes the pastor enlisted with the men of his flock, and the delicate sons of luxury vied with the hardy sone of toil in meeting patiently the hard ships, privations and sqfferings of the camp, the march, the bivouac, or the battle-field. I remember that the first time I ever saw the "Book. bridge Artillery"-that famous batters whioh was attached to the "8tonewall Brigade" at the first battle of Manassas, with Rev. Dr: (afterward General) Pen dleton as its captain-it had as private soldiers in its ranks no less than seven Masters of Arts of the University ol Virginia (the highest evidence of real scholarship of any degree conferred by any institution in this country), a large number of graduates of other colleges, and a number of others of the very pick of the young men of the State, among them a son of Gen. R. E. Lee, and a score or more of theological students. Two companies of students Qf the Uni versity of Virginia were mustered into service, and fully nine-tenths of the five hundred and fifty students who were at the University that session promptly entered the Confederate service-most of them the Army of Northern Vir ginia-as private soldiers. When Rev. Dr. Junkin of Pennsyl vania, who was then president of Wash ington College, Lexington, Virginia, caled a meeting of his faculty to devise means of punishing the students for raising a secession flag on the dome of the college the day after Virginia se ceded, he found the faculty. in hearty sympathy with the students, and while the doctor resigned his position and went North, the students formed a vol unteer company and marched to the front under Professor White as their captain. Even Dr. Junkin's own sons threw themselves heartily into the Con federate struggle, while his son-in-law left his quiet professor's chair at Lex ington to become the world famous "Stonewall Jacksop," The president of Hampden-Sidney College,, Virginia (Rev. Dr. Atkinson), entered the service at the head of a company of his students. Major T. J. Jackson marched the corps of cadets of the Virginia Military Institute from the arade ground at Lexington atprecisely eive o'clock on the day he received olders from the Governor.of the Com monwealth, and all these young men entered active service. Indeed, every college in Virginia and throughout the South suspended its regular exercises, and the ' mtadni.ht lamp" of the stu dent was exchanged for the "camp fires of the boys in gray." There might have been seen in the ranks of one of the companies a young man who met; every duty as a private soldier with enthusiasm, but who car. ried in his haversack copies of the Greek classics, which he read on the march or around the camp fires, who has, since the war, borne off at a Ger man university the highest honor ever won there by an American, who now fills the chair of Greek in one of the most important universities at the South, and who has already won a place in the very front rank of Amer ican scholars. I remember another (a Master of Arts of the University of Virginia), whom I found ly ing on an oil-cloth during an interval in the battle of Cold Harbor, in 1864, oblivious of everything around him. and deeply absorbed in the study of Arabic, in which, as in other Oriental languages, he has perfected himself since the war at the University of Ber lin, and bthis own studies in connec tion ith the profeseorship he fills, un til bieas now no superior, and scarcely an tqual ih,that- department in this coun8ry4 In wintet quarters it was very vommon to organise schools in whfch macomplished -teachers Would guide enthusiastic students into the mysteries of Latin, Greek, modern lan guages, and the higher mathematics. "".C- FRENCH OFFICIALS. The Mannerin which the French Civil ser vice Is Managed. The Courier des Etats Unis, a French journal published in New York, corrects a misapprehension of a contemporary in regard to the power enjoyed by the De Broglie Cabinet in its use of civil su bordinates to influence the election in France. Aside from the prefects, sub prefects, attorneys, magistrates, etc., who form but a small part of the ad ministrative army, and are subject to removal for political reasons, the civil officers of the government cannot be re moved except for incompetency or mis conduct. The Courier explains that from the moment employes receive salaries they leave 5 per cent of their earnings to be capitalized for their benefit in special pension securities, thus acquiring a preperty.right which generally reverts tn part to the widow of an employe, and the term at which the right to payment definitely accrues is ordinarily after 25 years' active or 30 years' sedentary service. An employe is thus a creditor of the State by virtue of a title aaala gous to, though differing in origin and essence from, that of a bondholder, and he cannot be deprived of his rights ex cept from other than political motives. A MARYLAND BLUE LAW. A Forgotten Act of 1723 Which is Now Making a Sensation in Washington. FN. Y. Tribune.] WASHINGTON, July 1.-In the absence of Attorney General Devens, Solicitor General Phillips has given an opinion, in the capacity of Acting Attorney Gen eral, which is making something of a sensation here. The Sunday Herald made the lowest bid for printing the tax list. Mr. Phillips' opinion is to the effect that an old Maryland law of 1723 is still in force, and prohibits bodily labor in the District of Columbia on Sunday. He therefore holds that a Sundky news paper is an illegal publication, and that as printing a tax list is in effect a ser vice on delinquent taxpayers, such a list cannot lawfuliy be published in a Sun day paper. The contract was therefore given out to the next lowest bidder. The paper thus ruled out prints the obsolete statute in full for the general amuse ment and edification of the town. It is as stringent as the old Connecticut blue laws, and probably has not been en forced for over a century. J. B. Walker, D. D. S., 180 Delord street.
