Upon its further cooling, the water, which, more or less, had covered it, 'Contracted; decomposition took place; shell tfish and coral insects were created and began their labors. Islands appeared in the midst of 'the ocean, raised from the deep by the pro ductive energies of millions of zoophytes, ' ' These islands "became covered with vegeta bles fitted to bear a high temperature, such as palms and various species of plants, similar to those which now exist in the hottest parts of the world. ' ; The submarine rocks of these new forma tions of land became covered with aquatic vegetables, on which species of shell-fish found their nourishment As the tempera ture of the globe became lower, species of the oviparous reptiles appear to havebeen created to' inhabit it; and the turtle,- crocodile and various gigantic 'animals, of the saurain (l'ss zard) kind Seem to have haunted the bays and waters of the primitive land. ' Jl But, in; this1 state of things, there appears to have been no Order of events similar to the present' ; Immense volcanic explosions seem to have taken place, accompanied by eleva tions and depressions of the surface of the glove, 'producing mountains, and causing new and extensive decompositions from the prirai tive Otfean. ; '''" ' -"'''"I.

There, after all. lies the charm. . Riches have not only not spoilt the man, but they have not altered him. ' , He is just the same in look, and word and way, that he was thirty years ago, when heand his wife, with two sorry horses, ' a : cow and three pigs, ' began the world at Dean Gate, a little bargain of twenty miles off. Ay, and his wife is the same woman ! $he same fru gal, tidy, industrious, good natured Mrs. Evans so noted for her activity in tongue and limb. her good looks and her plain dressing ! as frugal, as good natured, as plain dressing is Mrs. Evans at forty-five as she was at nine teen, and in a different way, almost as good looking. ' ' . , , ; , The children six "boys,' as Farmer Evans promiscuously calls them, whose ages .vary from eight to twenty, and three girls, two grown up, and One the youngestof the family are just what we might expect fromjjai rents who are so simple and so good. The young men, intelligent and . well conduct ed; the. boys, docile and promising;, and the little girl, as pretty a little curly-headed, rosy-cheeked poppet as ever was the pet and plaything of a largo family. : It is, however, with the eldest daughters we have to do. "'' Jane and Patty Evans were as much alike as hath ever befulleu any two sisters not born at one time ; for, in the matter of twin chil dren there has been a scries of puzzles ever since the days of the Dromois. Nearly of au age, (I believe at this moment both are turned nineteen.' and neither has reached twenty,) exactly of a stature, (so high that Fredrick the Great would have coveted them, for his tall regiment,) with ha2el eyes, large mouths, full lips,' white teeth, ,brown hair, clear, healthy complexion," 8n4 that sort of nose which is neither Greek nor' Roman, nor aqualine, nor ce jctit ttez retrousse, that some persons prefer to them all, but a nose which,' moderately prominent, and sufficiently well shaped,' is yet as far as I know; anonymous, although it be perhaps as common and as well looking a feature as is to be seen on an Eng lish tace. Altogether, they were a pair Of tall and comelv maidens, ahdbfiinirfinrist'.atitltr attired in garrhentv of the' same color and fashion, looked at all times so much alike, that no stranger ever dreamed "of knowing them apart and even their acquaintances were rather accustomed to speak and think of them generally as 'the Evanses; than as the sepa rate individuals Jane and Patty.1 Even thbsc who did pretend to distinguish the one from the other, were not exempt from mistakes, which the sisters Patty especially, delighted in the fun so often produced by the unusual resemblance were apt to favor by changing places in a walk; or slipping from one side to the other at a country tea-party,- or playing a hundred innocent tricks, to occasion at once a grave blunder and a merry laugh. Old Dinah Goodwin, for instancewho, being rather purblind, was jealous of being suspected of seeing less clearly than her neighbors, and had defied even the Evanses to puzzle her discernment seeking in ' vain on Patty's hand the cut finger which she' had dressed on Jane's, ascribed the incredible cure to her own incomparable salve ! and could hardly be undeceived, even by the pulling off ot jane's glove and the exhibition ot the lac crated digital sewed round by her own band age. Young George Kelly; too, the greatest beau in the parish, having bet at a Christmas party that he would dance with' every pretty girl in the roonij lost his wager, which Patty had overheard, by that saucv damsel's sliobinsf into her sister's place, and persuading her to juiu nor - own unconscious partner ; so mac George danced twice with Patty and not at All with J ane. 1 A bantering piece of malice which proved, as the young gentleman (a ruaticx- quisite ot the hrse water)' was pleased to as sert, that Miss Patty was riot displeased with her ; partner. " How little does a vain man -know of womankind. ".

But how a sane man can deliberately, and with any adequate idea of the purpose ' of human life, reach the conviction that its happiness is not real and satisfying, is one of the myste ries. The wisest men, it is not to be denied, have thus depreciated the value of earthly enjoyments, and used language which would imply the basest ingratitude to the author of these -enjoyments, if we did not know it is somehow prompted by a vague notion that God, has placed us in this beautiful world in order that we may be disappointed and tanta lized till we -come heartily to despise it and so look, upward to a higher life out of sheer disgust with this, it may be true that some grow into a genuine spiritual life by this process.,--But we cannot -believe it the natural way or the best way. r Goethe, the German Shakspeare, said : ' ' ' ,-.-" I have often been praised as an especial favorite of fortune; and I will not myself complain, - But at the bottom there has been nothing but trouble and labor ;.and I can well say that in riiy whole .five and seventy years, I had1 r.ot four weeks of real pleasure.

There is a satis- loction in roiling tne stone up again lor a new stait, quite aa great, 'sometimes, as in Watching its descent by the force of- gravity. That any single pleasure is not perpetual is no valid objection to it.: We should accept it gratefully for what it is, and if the giver of it is not well pleased with our thorough and hearty enjoy ment of each gift ho bestows, than he is not the loving Father our religion reprisents him to be. - The rose soon loses its beauty and fragrance, it is true, but is that a reason for not accepting the delicate sensual delight it offers while they do last. Besides the recollection of them is pleasant ; and . in all, the minutest things, with, which this world is adorned and enriched, there are valuable spiritual lessons for whoever will attentively look for them, If the- sources-. of "worldly happiness" were not transitory, tnere could be none of that Succession- and infinite variety that make our daily life ever new and fresh. ;: !' .; ,; .: .'.Lite is real ;'. its enjoyments are as real as its duties, and more real than niost of its sor roWsi" It is a morbid melaiWholy black bile; and too much of it that wakes it seem Oth erwise to any of us..

And. they profess dissatis faction with Gdd'ir earthly 'gifts ' only ' because they have a vagUe notion that it is somehow wrong to cultiyate.or gratify anyr human fac ulty that is not wholly spiritual, and that it is a sign or great heavenly mindedness to con sider all the pleasures of this world insipid and valueless. It is true that the permanent enjoyments of another life are of vastly high er value yet who can say that there, as herej there shall not be succession and variety ? The perpetual psalm-singing some anticipate caq hardly be more than a pleasant figure of speech: And there, as well as here, unless hu man nature is so radically transformed that we shall loose our identity and become some body else, perpetual growth and ever increas ing happiness must be attained by using and enjoying each facility,,,, We cannot avoid the conclusion that it is a great mistake to despise "worldly happiness," and that whoever neg lects to improve such; 'means of enjoyment sensual,; mental, moral or spiritual -as come in his way or, are to be. had. for the, seeking, wrongs his 'own' nature, perverts even his highest) faculties into morbid arid deformed growth, and in- that process acts ingratitude towards, liod wmie uttering thanksgiving with the hps.: Springfield Bept<dxn.

We most of us. tell old stories in our fami lies. The wifo and children laugh for the hundredth time at the joke. The old servants (though old servants are fewer everyday) nod and smile a recognition at the well-known anecdote. "Don't tell that story of Grouse in the gun-rooni," says Diggory to. Mr. Hardcas tje in the play, "or I must laugh." .; As .we twaddle, and grow old and forgetful, we may tell ari old story ; or, out of mere benevo lence, and a wish, to amuse a friend when con versation is flagging, .disinter a, Joe Miller now and then ; but the practice .is not quite honest and entails a certain necessity of .hypocrity on story hearers and tellers. it is a sad thing to think that a man with what you call a fund of anecdote is a humbug, more or' less amia ble and' pleasant. : What-right have I to tell my "Grouse and the gun-room" over and over in the presence of my wife, mother, mother-in-law, sons, daughters, old footman or parlor-maid, confidential clork, curate, or what not r,; J. smirk and go through the his tory, giving my admirable imitations of the characters introduced : I mimic Jones' grin, Hobbs' squint - Brown's stammer, - Grady's brogue, Sandy's Scotch accent to tlie best of my power : and the family part of my audi ence laughs good-humouredly. Perhaps tho stranger; for whose amusomeut the perform ance is given, is amused by it, and laughs too. But this practice continued is not moral. This self-indulgence on your part, my dear Paterfamilias, is weak, Vain not to say cul pable. I can imagine many a worthy man who begins Unguardedly to read this page, and comes to the present sentence, lying back in his chair, thinking of that story which he has told innocently for fifty years, and rather pitcously owning to himself, " Well, well, it is wrong ; I have no right to call On my poor wile to laugh, my. daughters to anect to be amused by that old, old jest of mine. And they would have gone on laughing, and they would have pretended to be amused, to their dying day, if this man had not flung Ju'a dam per over our hilarity." ' I lay down the pen and think, "Are there atly old stories which I still tell myself in the bo som of my .family ? ..Have-I any. 'Grouse in my gun-room." If there are such, it is be cause my memory fails; not because I want applause; and wantonly repeat myself. You see, men with the so-called fund of anecdote will not repeat the same story to the same in dividual ;-but: they :do think thaf on a new r ty, the repetition of a joke ever so old may . honorably tried! I meet men walking the London street, bearing the best reputation, men of nnccdotical ' powers ! I know such, who very likely will read this and say, "Hang the fellow, he means me!" And so I do, No no man ought to tell ari ariecdote more than thrice, let us say, unless he is sure he is speaking only to give pleasure, to his hearers unless he feels that it is not a mere desire for praise which makes him open his jaws. lhackeray.

Great was the host's indignation at thia second affront, but greater was my curiosity to know the meaning of the phrase employed, and inquiring of the farmer in the inn, lob tained the following explanation t . I here was, it seemed, at a village some dis tance off, a surgeon who prided himself upon his acutcness, and Continually boasted that he had never been dor.e. . , . , Now it happened one day that a scamp, who lived by his wits, was lurking about the house on the look-out for plunder, and having noticed tho surgeon's wife set for market, saw presently the surgeon himself go out as he supposed to visit his patients; . Him. likewise. he watched off the premises, and then, finding the coast clear, stole in through the frorit door and walked up stairs to lay hands on what . ever seemed most eligible : the booty select- ed was the best feather-bed ; this he took on his back, and began descending the stairs, with the precaution' of coming down backward! ; he had got about half-way down when in came the surgeon again. . " Hallo ! my man, where are you going with that bed ?" v. " Grmn up stairs . wi' un, aur.

" Now. my dear, always making some alter ation without consulting mc, and what have you done with that new feather-bed ?". "O, Lord!" said the wretched man. "I see it all." . : ' ' ' : - .-' '. .:: " Pray what do you see, my dear ?"

"A holo is dug in the centre of tho tent about two feet in depth and diameter. This is walled with stones laid in soft clay arid cov ered at the top with the exception of a small aperture . for the introduction of fuel For this aperture there must be a close-fitting door or cover, which can be opened and closed at pleasure. Across one side of the tent a trench is laid and covered with 'wood and earth, through which the cold air is conveyed freely to the- bottom part of this subterranean fire, place. From the top of the same and across the opposite side of the tent another trench is laid and. carefully covered :with stone and earth, through which the smoke and surplus. heat is carried off. This is the whole machine. Tho merits of it are obvious. It is uni versally practicable.1 It can bo introduced easU' ly into, any tent or dwelling.-; The .economy, of it ;. it costs only a few hours' work for, three'or four men.
