JONES. The Sons of Ham. 8 I! ::iii 451 12 10 45 But tliouffli the iio";ro is an African, all Airicaim aio not iicgi'ous. Tlicro are the same varieties to bo obscrvetl in Ham as in those of Slicni anil Japhctb. All nre distinctly African; but the rc troatiiir forebcad, prominent jaws, and ill-formed body by which the negro is generally credited, are not common. It is only tne Maiiyemv, of whom we have lately beard from Dr. Livingstone, who are beautilul 111 torni and leature; tor 1 have met with their counterparts iu regions less unknown. Iu South Afri ca there is a leuiarkable illustration of the iibvsieal and mental differences which may exist iu tribes that are al most contiguous. The Rojesinen are dwarfed 111 body, and stunted 111 mind, 'l beir language in its utterance seems to be not lar removed lrom the unitelhgi blegibberitigs of the npe. Their habits are those ol wild beasts rather than of human beings. They occupy about the lowest position in the scale of humani ty. Yet we look in vain for liner spec imens of the gents homo and tho Zulu Kafirs. They are tall in stature, manly in bearing, and graceful in movement. '1 heir language is pleasant to the ear and callable of expressing almost any thought the human mind is capable of conceiving. Ihey are logical 111 reason ing, patient in argument, and acute in observation. Ihey are war like, tortney are pastoral 111 their pursuits, and, since the davsof the Uyksos, the old shep herd kings who Mere the terror of X Eevpt, tho lovers of floc ks and herd have been fond of righting. When their blood is 1111. their iintrer races uncheck ed by the tender regard of the claims of uitv: out thev tlo not urooci over ineir wrontrs. and thev readily forget and foririve. "Thev fouirht us like men, and diirintr a truce they behaved themselves like gentlemen," was said by a friend of mine, who bad been engaued 111 a war against them.

Obi residents say that, there is now a greater display of bent steam, and Plutonic fury in them at present, than has been known since 18 41). I have been there twice before, but never saw such general activity as a present. Whether this is the result of increased demand for fire in the re gion where the antipodes of happiness and comfort are supposed to reign I cannot say. A real geyser is now shot up from the Witches Cauldron to a height of about forty-two feet above the surface. It would rise much higher but that tho overhanging banks of decom posed rocks against which it shoots up prevent it. A portion of this bank is to bo removed, and as this is to be a work of some danger, owing to the steam from the terrific heat of tbe black water in the cauldron (its temperature is 202 de grees Fahreheit that is 80 degrees above the boiling point) it is proposed for a short time to turn the cold stream which flows down the Cievser canvon into the cauldron, with the hope that its terrific heat may be sufficiently mitiga ted so admit 01 the removal of tho bank of rocks mentioned. The largo sti earn boat blow bipe the diameter of which is about equal to that of an ordinary flour-barrel now emits a more dense volume of steam than ever before, while the devil steam whistle makes a noise equally shrill and piercing as that which slits the ear when close to a locomotive as the whistle is being sounded. Warm work is, 111 short going on all through tho Geyser canyon. A Practical Test. A Danbury man named Reubens re cently saw u statement that counting one Hundred when tempted to speak an angry word would save a man a great deal of trouble, lhis statement sounded a little singular at first, but the more lie read it over the more favorably he became impressed with it and final ly concluded to adopt it. Next door to Reubens lives a man who has made five distinct attempts in the past fort night to secure a dinner of green peas by the first of July, and every time he has been retarded by Reubin's hens. Tho next morning after' Reu Lens made bis resolution this man found his fifth at tempt to have miscarried. 1 hen he call ed Reubens, lie said; "What in thunder do you mean by letting your hens tear up my garden?'' Reubens was tempted to call him a mud-shoot, a new name just coming in to general use, but he remembered his resolution, put down his boiling rage, and meekly observed: "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight" Then the mad neighbor, who had been eying this answer with a great deal of suspicion broke, in again: "Why don't you answer my question, you rascal?" Rut still Reubens maintained his equa nimity, and went on with the test. "Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen " The mad neighbor stared harder than ever. "Seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twen ty, twenty-one " "You are a mean skunk," said the mad neighbor, backing towards the fence. Reubens' face flushed at the charge, but he only said: "Twenty-two, thenty-three, twenty four, twenty-five, twenty-six " At this point the neighbor got up on the teuce 111 some haste, but suddenly tliinkintr of his peas, he opened his mouth : "1 ou mean low-lived rascal, for two cents 1 could knock your cracked head over a barn, and would " "lwcnty-seveii, twenty-eight," inter rupted Reubens, "twenty-nine, thirty, thny-one, thirty-two, thirty-three " Here the neitnioor broke lor tne house and enterinsr it, violently slammed the door, behind him; but Reubens dared not let up on the enumeration, and so stood out there alone in his own yard and kept on counting, while his burning cheeks and flashing eyes eloquently aniriiied his judgment. hen ho got into the eighties his wuo came to the door in some alarm. Why, Reubens, man, what is tho matter, with youi" she said. "Do come into the house. Rut he didn't let up. She came out to him, and clung trembling to him, but he only looked into her eyes and said: "Ninety-three, liiuety-iour, lunty-nve, ninety-six, neinety-seven, ninety-eiglit, ninety-nine, one hundred go into the house, old woman, or I'll bust ye."

They ' resemble paint brushes, aud owing to their shape it is impossi ble to get one behind the teeth. As might be expected, there is an accumu lation of tartar, which frequently draws the teeth of old people. Their process of manufacturing false teeth is very crude. The plates are made of wood, and the teeth consist of tacks driven up from the under side. A piece of wax is heated and pressed into the roof of he mouth. It is then taken out and har dened by putting it into cold water. Another piece of heated wax is applied to the impression, and after being pressed into shape, is hardened. A piece of wood is thenroughly cut into the desired form, and the model, having been smeared with red paint, it is ap plied to it. Where they touch each other, a mark is left by the paint. This is cut away till they touch evenly all over.

A Heroic Father. BY T. DE WITT TALMAGE. When Governor Geary of Pennsylva nia died a few months ago, I lost a friend. He impressed rne mightily with tho hon or of war. In tho cigtht hours that it takes to come from Ilarrisburg to New York, ho iecit"d to me scenes through whic h he had passed during tho last war. He said that theio came onebattlo upon which everything seemed to pivnt. Tel egrams from Washington said that tle life of tho nation depended upon that struggle. He said to me: "I went into that battle, sir, with my son. His moth er and I thought everything of him. You know how a father feels towards his son who is coming up manly, and brave, and good. Well, the "battle opened and concentrated, and it was aw- 1UI "rses and riders Dent ana twisted "J1.'1 IJ,lea UP together; it was awful, sirl V C,qUlt 1'r,n?Tan,1 took l" U' P0l,,t of ,he bayonet.

"Well," he said, "the bat tle was desperate, but after a while wo gained a lifle and we marched on a lit tle. I turned round to the troops and shouted, "come on boys!" and I etepped across a dead soldier, and lo! it was my S'n!Isawnt the first glance he was dead, and yet I didn't dare stop a min- .

Eternal ages seem depending on the strife. Heaven is waiting for the bulletins to announce the tremendous issue. Hail of shot, gash ofsarbre, fall of battle-ax, groaning 0:1 every side. We cannot stop for loss or bereavement, or any thing else. With one ardent embrace and one loving kiss, we utter our fare wells and then cry "Come on boys'." There are other heights to be captured; there are other foes to be conquered; there are other crowns to be won." Uncle Daniel Drew's opinion of Jay Gould. Uncle Daniel Drew, the survivor of more Wall street mortality than any oth er man living, thus gives his testimony about his young friend Jay Gould: "Xow Jay's a kind o' sharp boy. He's been to the synagogue, and they gets their eye teeth cut there afore they's out uv their bibs and tuckers. Yes he's sharp, but he's a rvs'iiu things a lejtle to fast, lie can't buck agin the whole street; he ought to know he couldn't do anything o' the sort. There's been chaps as smart us Jay what's tried it, and tliey got scooped all in a heap like. They'll ketch Jay all on a turn one of these fine moru in's, and away he'll go like a kite. Mind my word, boys! I've saw lots of boys busted, and there is going to be some more uv 'em busted right soou. Maik me, if there ain't." j I Xeveu Use Profane Language. The Washinton Star has the following: "On Friday afternoon, before leaving for Long Lranch, the President took a s. roll along II steeet and dropped iu to see a friend who is a well known citizen of Washington. Duiinghis stay the daughter of the gentleman referred to remarked that she had heard a very pleasant thing about him. Tho Presi dent inquired to what she referred. ' 1 have been told by an officer who served with you in the army,' said she, 'that he had been with you under many trying circumstances, and that in no tingle in stance, no matter what the provocation, had he ever known you lo make use of profane language. I was delighted to hear this, especially in view of tins fact that p'rol'an'uy is said lo bu the rule and uot the eXL'eiiUoii anion'' army uilicers. Will you excuse me, Mr. President, it I inquire if what I herd is true ?' 'It is, I believe,' modestly replied the President.

Destruction of Terrapin Tower. The Niagara Falls Gazette thus notices the destruction of "Terrapin Tower" long one of llio most conspicu ous objects around the falls: During the past fitly years millions ot people from exet y iithsibilable part of the glube have seen the round, weather-beaten lower, built upon tho narrow ledge of rocks upon the extreme bank of the Horse shoe Fall, and have enjoyed from its summit the m.'iguirieeut view which it al lot del of the 'umuliuous rapids above 11 11. 1 the mighty rush of waters below. Thev will learn with sincere regret that the venerable mass of masonry has been lestroyed. The lower was built in 1323, by Judge Porter, was 43 feet iu height and 12 feet iu diameter ut its base. The masonry was massive and its hardness aud durability many have thought lo have been ubiindauily demonstrated. But standing in such an extremely ex posed position, subject at all limes to the action ot the spray and the fierce, healing winds, aud in the winter months ice-bound and frost-bitten, the wood and stone have been gradually yielding to tl e elements, and the structure was pro nounced unsafe last fall, and has been closed to the publio ever since. Last week preparations were made lo rennve the concern, in order to make room for a new iron tower. Largo fissures were found to have opened in the masonry aud iho mast in 1 lie center ot the pile was found to be only a shell, the core having almost disappeared from a dry rot. The first attempt to blow up the tower was made Saturday noon, bill proved abor'ive, the twenty-five pounds ot powner Dtirn-il in tne Dase 01 uie structure only servinrr to demolish a por tion of the southwestern side.

An Interesting Discovery. j The Important urci-e in Archaeo logical resenreh in Paltstinp, Jerusalem ' the Island of Cypress and the ruins ot Nineveh, have been recently supplement ed by the discovery in Brstil of a stone or slab on which U engraved in unmis takably Phoenician characters, an so cour t cf a t Nil made to that country filher in tho linmof Ilir.im, Kinif of Tyre, the fricrd and ally of Solomon the great King 1 f Isrnet, or in the time ot a later mor-arch of that name, who lived between five and tx centuries before tho Christian era, The inscription sets forth, as at present deciphered, and that a number of "Csna-ite," as they term theinxt-lvi., tnnlw and female, em barked in their veaaaels at Azion Giber, a Port on of the Red Sen, and sailed for twelve months along the coast of Africa. Whether tly were refugees or banished persona, or explorers in (arch of new countri-, it would seem that they must have doubled the Cape of Good Hope, and thence sailing north ward they were probably driven by winds into the equitorial current and drifting with that same at length to the shores ot Brazil without (as sugges ted by the learned Renor, Lodisian Net lo, pirector of the Rio, museum, who made the rough translation) being a war- that they had paaed an '"'ean or landed upon a new continent. Tim stouo or a facismil r.f if, is to be sent to the great linguist of Europe, nnd it U probablu that w hen the ineription is fuly deci phered it may prove a key to unlock the mjttery of the ancient settlement of the American rontitient, and the origin aud hisioty of the vast ruins of ancient cities which are the wonders of Central America, and of which no record ha hitherto been obtainable. We have long been of the opinion that this great continent was known . to the hisluiio nations of remote antiqui ty and that voyages were made to and lrom the ports of Phoenicia, and per haps to those of other inaritino people. We know that the Phoenicians were ex tremely jealous of their commerce and knowledge ot navigation, and would not communicate it, so guarded were they to the localities they visited that an an cient writer afilrius the captain ot a Phoenician vessel finding ho was follow ed by a Roman galley, evideatiy with a view of discovering the port to which Le was bound, ran his vessel upon tbe rock, sooner than show the way to his pursuers and that on his return he was rewarded by his countrymen as having performed an act ot patriotism and pub lic service. These Phoenicians thought ncthing of passing the Pillars of Hercules as ihey termed the straits of Gibraltar, and being once upon the ocean it is pre sumed that they pushed westward as well as sniiihwaid mid the recently dis covered tablet may be merely the record ot an ordinary voyage safely acomplish ed, not to an unknown but the kuowu aud previously visited country. The minds ot ancient geographers and his torians were full of "terra incognita" or unknown land, which is either conjured up the fabled Atlantis, or else such an Island existed and was lost sight of in the darkness of the ages which followed, and thus the story ot its sudden disap pearance in anight gained credence and bec.itns a wondi r to be related by the sto-ry-iellcrs of Athens or the superslicious scribes of Italy and Asia. Au early ge ographer of Alexandria in Egypt two hundred years before Christ conjectured that there existed continents and Islands which could be reached by sailing west ward. Strabo and Ptolemy tavor tho same idea; the Northmen it is now known discovered it and voyaged hiiherward, and it was centuries, betore their discov eries became known to the rest of Eu rope. Columbus did not in our opinion, sail upon a theory, but was cognizant of facts which have riot come into the possession ot his biographers, wjilcn brought him to the shores 01 What was lo the then existing nation a "new world," but had been known 10 at least some ot the nations 01 1110 eartn two thousand years before. We are vet without information to the exact locality and circumstance ot the finding of this valuable contribution to American aniiquite. The director of the Rio Museum has no doubt of its ulhenticii y and the learned aud sci entific world will look with deep inter est tor a full exposition of its meaning, which may open the pool and indicatti the origin of the pre-historie nations, who built aud occupied the cities as well as those mourn! builders whose traces are scattered throughout the great west and the .Mississippi valley. An Old Fashioned Mother. Thank God soma of us havo an old fashioned mother not a woman of the period en ameled and painted with her groat chig non, her curls bottinos, whose white jew elled hands never felt tho clasp of ba by fingers, but a, dear old-fashioned, sweet voiced mother, with eyes m wuoso depths tho love light shonoj and brown hair threaded with silver lying smoothly upon her faded cheek. Those dear hands worn with toil, which guided our totter ing steps in childhood and smoothed our pillow in sickness. Blessed is the mem ory of an old fashioned mother. It floats up now liko the beautiful perfume of some woodland blossoms. The music of other voices may be lost, but the entrancing memory of hera will echo in our souls forever.
