Editor T-'lrgraph : Since ".Medicus" has applied himself so dil igently during the past few days, to publish his diagnosis of small pox or varioloid In the case of Mrs. Dawson at my house even to the extent of circulating it through the medi um of yourhst week's Issue of the Telegraph, I have thought a few words relative to ' the case tending to extend hit notoriety, might, perhaps, be read with keen relish, at least, by himself. Jlavlnz advi-rtliod himself as prepared to attend upon those wishing to be vaccinated ho was called to wait upon my fiimilf only in the capacity lo which his advertisement refer red, and bafore leaving the home JiU attention was Incidentally directed to Mrs. Dawsou, who lind a few pimples tin one hand the tfU nnm'ier not exceeliiig tie and well, J'oU know the rest. Thus we were ot onre made tile foundation Of nptnic; our children were frequently re minded by kind-hearted but panic-stricken neighbors that they should not forget to hover closo round tho fountain-head of infection their lioiilj; good paople turned purple In Ihe face, when I ventured nbout tho streets ; the social cloud grew d.irker about us, and yet our good m.itlier with the tore hrtixd, wouldn't be sick, but insisted on goingotit into the cold nir as usual. What could bo done? Three competent physicians were culled in never before did sore fingers, in our family, receive sncu manieti intention ami sought In vain foi symptoms, present or past, In the least in dicalive of varioloid or small pox. We didn't know whether to bellevo our senses or not. What I "Medicus" robbed of the glory of tone ate in the "present epidemic,'' which "will probably be restricted to three or four cases at most?" Pjssible that his re nown should thus perish In lis earliest gasp for life But so it was. The seal ot doom sat darkly upon its brow at birth, and it fell with our infection nnd tcult into nn early tomb; for while the disease was at its bight her finger was still sore "Medicus"' article appeared, staling (hat the case was now en tirely convalescent, and all danger of conta gion past. It would be Impossible for any one to imagine what a relief it was to know that nlotlefn "contagion" is so exceedingly ao cninmodating 1 In conclusion, we have decided that a very trivial matter, in the hands of one whose edu datlnn best fits him to Investigate such, may like a pot of yenst, foam nnd ferment, till Its support becomes most thoroughly bedaubed. P. F. GOOD. PLYMOUTH, Dec. 18th, 1871. Editor Telegraph : I suppose you are acquainted With tbe fact that by the running away of my tenm on the 2nd Inst. which was caused by a piece of pa per my family narrowly escaped a terrible accident; and by tho wrecking of my carriago aud the wheel of another wagon in the street and breaking of harnesses, I shall be out of pocket about $25. I ought to compel the village to pay for it. Merchants have been cautioned again and again in the mutter of throwing paper in the street, but It does n6t have any effect. I am a sufferer from thi cause, jet you will I have iwrllten Jt as it came from one of your village merchants or buinessmen, for I do not wish to draw upon myself any notoriety or censure for flapping your sluggish village council. E. L. TRAVER. The many young friends of Harry 8bth erland, formerly clerk for II. A. Hkrdht, will be sorry to hear that he was, it Is feared fatally injured In a fire at Mansfield, O. He, with two others, a young lady and gentleman who were killed, were engaged iu. femcvlDg goods from the buruing building, when the wall fell, burying them in hot bricks aad bum log timbers. The young lady's screams were heart-rending tbe bricks literally burned through - hei bqdy wiille h was yet- alifto. Harry had to be chopped out with axes ; but said to those at work "Let dm alone, I'll die, anyhow fbf;) save that A.kC 6b iay jost three feet from hlto, but was dead when taken out. Harry sustained terrible Injuries a frac ture of one thigh, a compound fracture of tbe ankle, besides burns and bruises. He was perfectly conscious, and after laying half a day In a Dr.'s office, and no reaction taking place, he insisted upon bclni; carried homo although tbe physicians said it would be un necessary treuble, ns he would not live to get there. It required eight men to lift him, on a canvas bed made for tbe purpose, with tip rights and pulleys, and his screams cuuld be heard for half a square. He suffers terribly from his burns, but the latest dispatches to Mr. Hendry says that slight hopes are enter tained of his recovery. For the Telegraph. Mr. Editor : I am well aware nf the fact that "great bodies move slowly," therefore, like Micawbcr, I have patiently "waited for something to turn up," or rather for something to be turned out from our Village Embers' grave council chamber in Ihe shape of an Ordinance. I did think the eevere logic of recent events would show Ihem Ihe necessity of prompt, vigorous action in this matter. I refer to the passing of an ordinance Hint shall prohibit tbe sweep- lug of ppperB Into Ihe street, as' the habit of some is.' There is rerlainlv not a mors nro- - i-- ilic cause of runaways and accidents, than llivsc loose, flying bits of paper. Few horses will stand quietly when these are whirled to ward or about tla-m ; and it is Bti almost dally occurrence to see horses thus frightened. Some say they sweep all papers out f the rrur door. But that docs not improve the matter much, if any, for most of these are soon carried by the wind through lanes and alleys into the main streets. And from this samu cause it is quiut as unsafe to bitch a team in a vacant lot in the reur of a store in one sense it is mote unsafe, for if a team eels frightened there is no one uear to prevent a runnwav. Now it is but ribt and proper that our country patrons should be assured of safety for their teams when hitched in front of our stores, whilst they are transacting business with us. W ith nil due respect to the wisdom of the Council, I Ihink it is high time thai this nu 8 ince should be abated by compelling all persons either to burn or else to put in a safe place all bits of paper, etc. It' they longer ail to pass such an ordinance, then I sincerely hope that hereafter every sufferer wilL in court, compel the authorities to pay for all damages resulting from this eause. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." li is neillier w ise nor cxnetlient to wait until some terrible accident, causing death or manning for life, shall arouse and compel them lo do llieir duty to the public in JUSTICE. Can You Afford It? if Can you afford to work hard nil dav. and read, study, or court the vagaries of society nearly all night, thus wastiug your vitality, exhausting your nervous system, and bringing on permature dis ease, decay, and old age Lun you altonl to read hue print with a poor light in a rail car, where ih mo tion disturbs the proper tocus of vision, I nits weakening your ryes so as to near ly deprive yoti ol ihu power to use them either in reading or in the daily duties ot o!

In its ilfKceiit through this wooden ul chasm the river falls almost 80 )0 licet. At one point where the passage; lias been worn iiirottn a mountain ranze. our hunters ansiired us it Was more than a vertical mile in depth, and the river, broken in lo rapids und cascades, appealed no wi lier than a libon. The brain reels as we tfnzu into this profound and solemn soli Tilude We shrink from the dirzy verge appalled, glad to feel the solid earth nn tier uur leet, and venture no more ex cept with forms tiled Jed, and faces barely protruding over the edge of the precipice. The stillness is horrible. Down, down, down, we see the river at tenuated lo a thread, tossing its minia ture waves, aud dashing, with puny strength, ihe massive Walls which itu prisou it. All access to its margin is de nied, and the dark gray rocks hold it in dismal idiadow. Even the voice if its waters in their convulsive agony caniul bo heard. L'nclieered by plant ur shrub, obstructed by massive boulders and bv jutting points, ii i uslies madly on its sol itary course, deeper ana deeper into the bowels ot the rocky firmament.

All things that crawl, swim, fly, creep or w iggle have a biography. Although the ant is several sizes smaller than ihe elephant, it has the same biography us he has. The iimitict of animals are their biography. The cock-roach is one of tbe luxuties cf civilisation. He is easy to domesticate, and yields gracelnl ly to ordinary kindness, He is one oi a numerous family, and may he often seen with tbe naked eye climbing the sugar bowl. He is born on the fiist day of May and the first duy of September, semi-annually, and is ready lor use in til teen days. Their food does not seem to be so fu licit what they eat as what they get into. Hie bugbear comes from an imaginary egg Bn hatched lu an imaginary man ner.

Angle worms are of earth earthly, and crawl for a living. It is said thai angle worm oil, if rubbed on the back of a man's neck, will cure falsehood --if il kills the man, Tree toads are the only branch of the load family who can climb a lieu without boosting.

TIir ttoose lays one ess at a lime, in which the gosling lies bid. The goose is very good ealiug, but not good chewing. The swine almost alv:iys has tour legs. They existed a long time before the flood. They always eat what is set before them and never ask any questions. The swine can be learned a great many amusing things. Swine has a great deal ot coun try genius. They can all root well, The smallest animal of the brute pro fession is the pesky flea. They spring from low places and bile worse than the mosquito, and ofteiier, because they bile as ihey run. One flea will fly all over the body in two minutes. It is i (impossi ble to do anything well with a flea on you except swear, and they are not afraid of that. If you ever cutch a Ilea kill him before you do anything else. Next to the monkey the crow has the most deuced ness to span?. An educated crow is actually worse than a quack doo lor. They live on what they can find, aud can't tind anythiug if not lied last.

He is early deserted by bis parents, and never travels much except on his muscle. Clams was first discovered in tho same way that measles was by being katched. The hornet is a red lioi child of nature; of sudden conclusions aud sharp expres sions. These fiery creatures live in con gregations. I haye never examined their social relations closo'.y. They build their nests wherever they choose. and are never disturbed. They are always very busy. Hornets are long lived.' The monkey is the shadow ol the bti man bving. He hat ngt goi, a classical head. He resembles a rat terrier in his features. Monkeys never grow any older in beauty. They are Komclimes kept as pets. The goat has a good appetite and a guine disposition. The male goat has a moustache on his lower lip. They can climb anythiug hut a greased pole. They use the satno language as the sheep. On tight boots he said he would like to know who invented them. Any man who can wear tight boots, be humble, atil not indulge in profane literature, will make a good husband.

' During the winter he lies him self up iu a not aud goes to sleep by his fireside; He is not a depraved Vagabond like tho alligator. .

A room, with pictures In it, and. a loom with pictures, differ by nearly as much as a room with window's and a room without windows. Nothing, we think, is more melancholy, parties larly to a person who has to spend much time in his room, than blank walls-1 for pictures nro loopholes of escape to the soul, leading it to other scenes and oth er spheres. It is such an inexpressible relief to a person engaged in writing, or even reading, on loosing op, to find his soul escaping, as it were,. through Ihe frame of an exquisite picture, to other beautiful nnd perhaps Idyllic scenes,' where the fancy lor a moment may revel, refreshed and delighted. Is it wtntei iu your world ?

Ax Unti-Easaxt Shave. A work man at Colt's armory who has (or had) a very long beard, flowing down upon his breast, was the other day at work upon a small lathe revolving rapidly, liv? said he "felt something tickliug bis fieard," arid looking down, saw some ot the longest hairs touching the lathe. Quick as a flash, before he had time to think of his dangei, the longest hair of his beard caught in the lathe and wound him up ; the next he knew the lathe wan nearly turning out the inside of his none, cutting out tbe cartilage that separates the nostrils; then, with a mighty effort, he straightened up, saving himself frora further operations on the lathe by puli ng out a handful of beard a fool long aud as large round as his wrist which, will be bandy for his wife to use a "switch." His injuries are painful, but1 not dangerous. 1artford Couvttnt.
