An author who had wrought a book of fables (the merit whereof had transcend' ed expression) was peacefully sleeping atop the modest eminence to which ho had attained, when he was rudely awak ened by a throng of critics, emitting ad' verse judgment upon the tales he bad builded. "Apparently," said be "I have been guilty of some small grains of un considered wisdom, and the same have proven a bitterness to these excellent folk, the which they will not abide. Ah! well, those who produced tha trasburg pate and the feather pillow are prone to regard us as a rival creators. I presume it is in the course of nature for him who grows the pen to censure the manner of its use. So speaking he executed a smile a hand's breadth in extent, and resumed his airy dream of dropping ducats. Moral: As above. u. "What have you there on your back?" said a zebra, jeeringly, to a "ship of the desert" in ballast "Only a bale of gridirons," was tbe meek reply. AUU Huai, pray, wbj jruuwuu uu-i incr with themf was the incredulous rejoinder. "What am I going to do with grid' irons f ' repeated the camel, contemptu ously. "Nice question for you who have evidently come off oneJ" Feonle who wish to throw stones should not live in glass bouses; but there ought to be few in their vicinity, m. A man pursued by a lion was about stepping into a place of safety, when he bethought him of the power of the human eye, and, turning about, he fixed upon his pursuer a steady look of stern reproof. The raging beast immediately moderated his rate per hour, and finally came to a dead halt within a yard of the man's nose. After making a leisurely survey of him, he extended his neck and bit off a small portion of the victim's thigh. "Beard of Ariraanes," roared the man. "have you no respect for the human eye?" "I hold the human eye in profound esteem," replied the lion, ''and I confess its power. It assists digestion if taken just before a meal. But I don't under stand why you should have two and I none." With that he raised his foot, un sheathed his claws, and transferred one of the gentleman's visual organs to his own mouth. "Now," continued he, "during a brief; remainder of a squandered existence, your lion-quelling power being more highly concentrated, will be more easily managed." He then devoured the remnant of his victim, including the other eye. This tale seems to imply the falsity of certain accepted beliefs. It is therefore, insnUiog. Translator. IV. An ant laden with a grain of corn, which he bad acquired with infinite toil, was breastifig jl current of his fellows, each of whom, as 4s the etiquette, insist ed upon stopping him, feeling him all over, and shaking bauds. It occured to him that an excess of ceremony is an abuse of courtesy. So belaid down his burden, eat upon it, folded .all his legs tight to his body and smiled ft smile of great grimness. "Hullo! Whaft the matter .with you?" exclaimed the first insect whose overtures were declined. "Sick of the hollow conventionalities of a rotten civilization,-" was the .rasping reply. "Relapsed into the honest sim plicity of primitive observances. Go to grass!" "AhJ .then we must trouble you for that corn. Is a condition of primitive simplicity there are no rights of property,- you know. These are hollow con ventionalties." A light dawned upon the intellect of that pismire. He shook the reefs out of his legs, he scratched the f&verse of his ear, be grappled that cereal and .trotted away like a giant refreshed. It was ob served that he trotted away with a wealth of patience to manipulation by his friends and neigbars, and went some distance out of his way to shake bands with strangers on competing lines of traffic Nevertheless this fable does not teach that social observances are always, or even commonly, grounded in good sense, if it did, that would stake it true. A anake who had lain torpid all winter in kta hole took advantage of the first warm day to limber .up for Abe spring campaign. Having 'tea iuatset into an intricate knot, he was so overcome by the warmth of his owa body that be fell asleep and did not wake until nightfall. In the darkness he was unable tojtndhis head or his tail, and so conld .not disen tangle and slide into his hole. Per con sequence, he froze to death. Many a suitable philosopher has failed io solve that knotty problem himself, owing to his inability to discern bis be ginning and his end.

At a meeting of the New York Acade my of Science recently, Prof. Thomas Eggleston of the School of Mines gave a brief account of bis experiments with M. La Bastie's new elastic glass. The pro cess which removes the brittleness of ordinary glass consists in immersing it at a red heat into a bath of fatty sub stances, which the inventor keeps secret, and to slowly cooling the glass therein. The lecturer threw three pieces of col ored glass on the noor, as well as some watch crystals, neither of which broke although thrown vigorously tea or twelve feet. Various glass plates simi larly projected remained entire; but the Professor showed the only way of break ing them, by spinning one fourteen feet high in the air, and allowing it to im pinge horizontally and with its whole surface, when it shivered into thousands of pieces. In the experiments recited by tbe lecturer it required thirty-six shocks of a pointed steel cylinder falling from ten to twelve feet high on the same point of prepared glass to break it. On prepared glass placed at angles in hot houses the falling cylinders had no effect In resistance to direct pressure the prepared glass far surpasses the best ordinary, strips of the latter on knife edges bearing at the utmost a weight of seven pounds, while narrowed strips of the new did not break under sixty pounds weight but often required much higher pressure. With ordinary sup ports a half inch tempered glass three inches long broke only at 210 pounds. The resistance of the new material to fire is remarkable. A plate on which a heat of 1,000 degrees were brought to bear only began to' bulge aflor 3 minutes of such intense heat, while ordinary glass broke within five second-". Its appli cability to optical purp es has as yet not been fully tested, but although ex tremely elastic, La BastR-'s glass is so hard that it resists the diamond. K Y. Sun. Scribner far July The contents of Scribner for July have been described as follows: "Kearny at Seven Pines," a ballad by Stedman, il lustrated by Darley, takes the lead in the July number of Scribner. Next we have a profusely illustrated sketch of "The City of the Golden Gate," by Sam ucl Williams, one of the best known editors of San Francisco, who writes apparently with discretion as well as enthusiasm. Not the least interesting part of Mr. William's paper is that in which he describes John Chinaman but his article is lively and readable from beginning to end. Col. Waring "Far- mera Vacation" in this month descrip tive of 'The Bight oi LaManche;" he gives us a very bright and racy article, with a great many illustrations. Dr, Holland's "Story of Sevenoaks" is con tinued ; Frank R. Stockton writes about "The Girl at Eadder Grange;" Mr. A B. Johnson, private secretary of Charles Sumner, pretests some more "Recollec tions" of the Senator; J. B. Drury has an essay on Darwinism; Francis Gerry Fairfield prints an appendix to his paper on Spiritualism : and among the other contributions we note a story by Prof. Boyesen, author of "Gunnar" and "The Norseman's Pilgrimage;" something about "The Middle-aged Woman," by Mrs. Davis; and a poem by Miss Hous ton, a daughter of the celebrated Sam Houston. In Topics of the Time Dr. Holland writes about "Old and New" now con solidated with Scribner; "International Copyright;" "The Parochial Schools;" and an "American School of Art" The Old Cabinet contains "A Confusion of Terms;" "Thought in Art;" "The Plea of humility;" and "The Pickpocket's Excuse." Home and Society, Culture and Progress, The World's Work, and Bric-a-Brac have their usual variety. Tbe publishers promise that there will be no falling off of interest in the sum mer months. CwlU'tfce Blared. A couple of horsemen coming into the city the other day from the interior, overtook an old man and his wife seated in the bottom of a mule-cart Feeling in high spirits, one of the men called out: "Hallo, uncle, how much wiH you take for your wife, cash down ?" "Oh, I dunno," he slowly epUed. "Well, name your price." "Howmuch'llyegivef he asked. "Ten dollars." 'Take her!" The horseman didn't know what to say, and was gathering np the reins, when the old woman jumped to the ground and exclaimed : "Pass over the ducats, mister! I like the old man and he likes me, but we are a family which can't be bluffed by no man on horseback!" "The "bluffers" got out the scrape by riding off at foil speed. Paper ia now msed very successfully for nuking buggy foxes, baskets, belt ing for Machinery, boats, clothing, household utensils, etc. For buggy boxes the utility is ajgUf appreciated as there is no danger of its shrinking or cracking, and it is almost kspossible for a horse by kicking it to asake any impression on its surface. A Little SUry ly Oea. Skeraaa. Gen. Sherman's new book of recollec tions is reviving that crop of war stories which had been temporarily harvested. But Sherman's stories have a point and snap which come from personal influ ence and recollection in the premises, and a good many of them are vastly amusing reading. For example, he tells one illustrating the idea of military dis cipline with which the war was begun. An officer, whose term had expired, re marked to Gen. Sherman that he was going home, although he had not been mustered out Sherman remarked that he should in case of such attempt, feel obliged to shoot the officer on the spot The officer concluded not to start but Mr. Lincoln happened to visit the bri gade the same day, and complaint was made to htm by the aggrieved party. Sherman tells it in this way : Mr. Lin coln, who was still standing, said: "Threatened to shoot youT "Yes, sir, he threatened to shoot me." Mr. Lin coln looked at him, and then at me, and, stooping his tall, spare form toward the officer, and said to him In a loud stage whisper, easily heard for some yards around, "Well, if I were you, and he threatened to shoot, I would not trust him, for I believe he would do it" The officer turned about and disappeared, and the men laughed at him. Soon the carriage drove on, and, as we descended tbe hill, explained the facts to the President who answered, "Of course I didn't know anything about it, but I thought you knew your own business best" I thanked him for his confidence and assured him that what he had done would go far to enable me to maintain good discipline, and it did. Adrertuilig. The New York Timet has some sens! ble remarks on tbe subject of advertising and after censuring the spasmodic and stunning style and methods, and show ing that people of discretion look for advertisements in the newspapers which discreetly and fairly state the fact, it says: Newspapers have become the accredit ed and well established medium of all kinds of announcements to the public. From the proclamation of tbe head of the government to the announcement of a housemaid that she wants a place, communication with tho public is nat urally and properly conducted through newspapers. It could not well he other wise, considering the place which the daily newspaper holds in modern civili ization. Advertisements iu newspapers have, therefore, a propriety, a sort of legitimacy, and a weight which pertains to advertisements in no other form. A discreetly worded advertisement in a respectable paper is in itself a sort of promise of discretion and respectability on the part of the advertiser. Irregular and fanciful advertisements, are likely to do something to cast suspicion in these very particulars upon the person who makes use of them. There is no way of forcing the attention of those who wish to buy. What can be done to give information to intending purchas ers where their wants can be supplied, and that is effectively done only in the columns of newspapers of good standing. Tbe Im Mask. The following anecdote was related to Charles Sumner by Gen. Cass, and is givea in A. B. Johnson's "Recollections of Charles Sumner," in Scribner for July : "When Gen. Cass was Minister to France, he became somewhat intimate with the then King of the French, Louis Phillippe. One evening when they were alone, the General requested permission to ask a question. "Ask what you please," the King re plied. "Then," queried the Minuter, "can your Majesty tell me anything of the Man in the Iron Mask?" , "Ah," replied Louis, somewhat amaz ed, "yes, and I will tell you all I know about it When I returned from Amer ica, immediately upon seeing my eeosin, Count d'Artois, I, evincing this same curiosity, asked him whether he could tell me anything about the mystery. 'Only this,' replied the Count : 'Once in rambling through the Tuileries, I found myself in the apartments of tbe Queen, Marie Antoinette. Parting the curtains which concealed me from her eyes, I saw her on her knees before the King. "In mercy's name," she said, "Sire, tell me! who was the Man in the Iron Mask?" "I cannot tell you," answered Louis XVI., sternly. "I learned it from my predecessor, and can tell it only to mysaeeeosr. Bat this I will tell you: if you knew who he was, you would be greatly disappointed at the curiosity wtaeh be has excited."'" A man never Jelly realizes the depth of misery to which his kind may be sub jected; he never knows to the fullest extent the bitterness of poignant grief and buck despair; he never knows what it is to be atone ia this world, mocked by fate and bafeted by fortune, aatil be tries to sew on a shirt button with a darning needle and a yard of carpet, and splits the battoa aad pins bis thumb' to his leg with two inches of the needle. A coronr's inquest ia Boston weaad np with a supperand musical eatertainaaeat Wkat ia CMneree?- Commerce is an occupation ia which men serve each other; it is an exchange in which both parties in the transaction gain something which they desire more than the thing they part with. It may sometimes be that the desire which ia satisfied on the one part or tbe other is one that had better not be served : that is a question of morals with which we are not bow dealing. Such exchanges are, however, the exception. The traffic in commodotics that work permanent injury constitutes but an insignificant proportion of the vast exchanges of the world ; true commerce in useful things lies at the very foundation of human welfare. Unless a good and wholesome subsistence is possible, there can be neither spiritual, intellectual, nor es thetic culture, and such a subsistence is only possible to the mass of men by means of an exchange of products. All commerce is the aggregate of small transactions. The milkman who brings the daily portion of milk to him who dwells in city or town represents a com merce of vast proportion, almost equal in this country, in its aggregate value to tbe whole sum of our foreign importa tions. The value of dairy products con sumed in the United States or exported in the form of cheese and butter is more than four hundred million dollars. Tbe milkman is the representative of one of the branches of commerce which has grown to this vast proportion during the century, and in which the people of the United States have shown the greatest originality. The cheese factory repre sents a manufacture born of thrift and enterprise only, and our exports of cheese exceed ninety million pounds a year. How little the true function of com merce has been understood may be prov ed by the fact that only within the cen tury has it been admitted among the English-speaking people that there can be any mutual service in the matter. In this country even to this day this truth is but obscurely perceived, and hence the nation with which we have our lar gest transactions, our mother country, is often called our natural enemy by other wise intelligent persons, because she tries to supply some of our needs at a low cost to us; yet had the true nature of commerce been comprehended a hun dred years ago, war between us and England would have been as impossible then as it would now be infamous and absurd. It was a want of knowledge as to the true function of trade that caused the revolution. Harper't Magazine. Tbe lageBuinty of a Small Bey. One day last week a little boy who had been standing for some time in front of a drug store in Baltimore, enviously eyeing a large reel, well provided with "simmy- dimmy" twine, as the boys call it, which was fastened to the top of tbe counter, summoned up courage enough to walk in and ask fur a few yards with which to fly his kite. Tbe doctor bears the name of being a good-natured man, full of humor, and very fond of the little ones; but the youngster approached him at a time when he was out of his usual mood, and he consequently gave "no" or an an swer. The urchin had made up his mind to have some of "that cord" anyhow, and he got it On Thursday morning the boy entered the store, accompanied by another boy and a dog. Boy No. 2, hav ing placed a bottle on the counter, de murely asked for five cents' worth "sirup squills and pollygolic," and while the doctor was filling the order, boy No. 1 was tying tbe end of tbe cord to the dog's tail. When the man of medicine returned to the counter the reel was fly ing like fury. The doctor reached for a pallet-knife, and, having hung himself over the counter, made a desperate whack at the cranium of the youngster, who. he supposed, was sitting on the floor helping himself- But-lo! the boys and the dog "Bouncer" were not there. The doctor, having tried in vain to stop his reel, was obliged to give it up on account of the heat it communicated to the palm of his hand. When he reached the door he beheld the boys upon the sidewalk about two blocks off, and "Bouncer" in the middle of the street going at the rate of forty knots an hour, the string point ing directly towards his tail. The reel continued to spin for some time after ward, until it stopped of its own accord. Millage W. Johnson has had his ups and downs in life. Five years ago he was a forger and counterfeiter. By strict attention to business he was en abled to accumulate a little fortune, only to lose it all at Faro. Then he traveled as an instructor of bank clerks ia the detection of counterfeit money, being ex pert enough to merit and get good pay ; but again' his savings were swept away by faro. Whereupon be resolved never to gamble again. He went to Chicago, adopted tbe name of Wade, assiduously courted a wealthy widow, aurried ber, joined a church, and was making respec tability pay. Suddenly some officers ar rived from Pittsburgh and arrested him for an old forgery. It k hard to say now whether be is up or down. He is in jail, which is apleasaat, bat his wife says she will spend all her mosey to get him out which ia pleasant Tie War Priieiile lllutrated. A Mr. Beane, a school teacher in Ten nessee attempted to punish a boy named Hutchinson, who resisted and left school. A day or two after, young Hutchinson accompanied by his brother and a man named Smith, visited Beano's house for the avowed purpose of chastis ing him. Beane saw them coming, and anticipating their errand, armed him self, as also did Mr. Moore, who happened to be at the house. On their arrival Hutchinson said they intended giving Beane a thrashing. Moore remonstrated, when Smith drew a pistol and shot him dead. This was a signal for all to pro duce pistols. Beane shot and instantly killed Cyrua'Hutchinson, brother of the school boy. He bad scarcely fired when Smith, who had instantly killed Moore, fired another barrel of his repeater at Beane ; the ball struck, but failed imme diately to disable him. Beane then turned on Smith, and lodged thrra balls in his body, inflicting wounds which re suited mortally in a few minutes. In twenty minutes four out of the five en gaged in the affray, lay dead within a few feet of each other. Here is a fair specimen of the war principle. The parties having got mad at each other, resolved without any form of law, or any security for a right decis ion, to avenge their alleged wrong. They pretended to no rule of right ex cept their own will roused into rage ; and without law, or judge, or jury, they took what they called justice into their own hands. The result, as in most wars, was suicidal to both parties. - Is it not aborn ing shame, that so called Christian civili zation of this nineteenth century has no better system of international justice than such indiscriminate, tiger-like butchery? Dtiliaisuf Bad Laagaage. Yesterday afternoon a man who had been beaten in a lawsuit stood at the corner of Griswold street and Justick al ley and cursed high and low. He was spouting away in vehement tones when the lawyer asked : "Are you swearing at anybody in par ticular." "No, blast you, no!" ripped out the man. "Well, it's too bad to have all that wasted. I wish you would use a few of the biggest and best oaths on Hannibal Hamlin, the man who raised the rates on postage." Tbe man gave it to Hamlin right and left for eleven minutes, and then the po lice interferrcd. Mr. David Dudley field, an eminent lawyer of this country, who deserves the highest honor as an enthusiastic apost!e of peace, has made a draft of an interna tional code, extending to seven hundred and two sections, and covering the whole field of international, public and private law. His propositions in respect to the adjustment of national difficulties are the following: 1. That every nation supposing itself to have a ground of com plaint against another shall give formal notice of the cause or causes of such com plaint against another shall give formal notice of the cause or causes of such com plaint as well as the redress which it seeks. 2. That when, after such notice the tow nations find themselves unable to agree as to the matter in dispute, they shall appoint a joint high commis sion, whose business shall be, if possible, to reconcile them, and in this way ter minate the 'dispute. 3. That in the event of a failure the question shall be referred to a high tribunal of arbitration, consisting of seven persons, appointed in a specific, way, whose decision shall be final, 4. That the nations that are par ties to tbe code embracing these princi ples shall bind themselves to see to it that each nation thus a party shall not resort to war with any other party ac cepting the code, bat shall in all cases comply with its provisions far the preser vation of peace. The horse is a native of Asia, and ap pears to have been brought to the west ern part of that continent by the Asy rian tribes in their early emigrations. In Asyria and Persia the horse is associ ated with the remotest antiquity of those ancient nations. He was used for both burdens and draft. No evidence has yet been found that the Europeans bad any knowledge of the horse during tbe age of flint tools. In the days of Homer, however, the Greeks were familiar with the horse both ia domestic and military operations. No species of the horse fam ily was found on this continent when first visited by the Spaniards. The wild horses which roam in herds over parts of Mexico and South America, are descended from' the stock brought from Europe by tbe Spaniards, and used by them in the conquest of those countries. Never listen to any one who, in telling yoa things derogatory of a third person's character, prefaces his recital with a "do not telL" If what he says k true, no secresyk needed; it not true our prom ise of concealment leaves no chance of defense by the person aspersed. "My dear," said a husband, ia startled tones, after waking hk wife ia the mid dle of the night "I have swallowed a dose of stryebaiac." "Well, then, do for goodness sake lie still or it may come up." Tke Raise faa AaeieitClryli Keataeky Mr. Green Botta ia the owner of a Jarm at Peeled Oak, oa Slate Creek, a noted section of Bath county, aad this spring, in plowing np about sixty acres of level land, he discovered the ruins of a city a city of regular streets, curbed with stone, and evincing a higher order of architectural knowledge and a greater civilization than any other prehistoric remains yet found in this country. Many years ago a faint trace of a similar city was noticed in Montgomery county, near Mount Sterling; but the owner of the land, having little taste for backward researches, almost or entirely obliterated the evidences to make room for corn growing. This being a fresh discovery we have no doubt it will be visited by Prof. Shaler and tbe archaeologists and prehistoriaiis of the country at large. The land adjoins a large tract belonging to Gen. William Preston, of Lexington. Frankfort Yeoman. These k an amusing little trick which is sometimes played on unsuspecting: persons, and which illustrates the prop erty of air. An empty soda water bottle if laid on its side, and a piece of cork about as large as a pea placed within its neck. Anyone is then challenged to blow the cork into the bottle. This looks so easy that a person who does not know the trick advances and blows sharply into the bottle. To his great surprise he finds himself struck in the face with tbe piece of cork, which he has blown out of the bottle and not into it The fact is, the bottle, though it looks empty, k really full of air; and just in proportion as air k blown into it tho air that already exists k blown out carrying ' the'eork with it The only way to get the cork into the bottle k to coax it so to speak by blowing very gently and steadily on one side, so that the air within tbe bottle k allowed to escape gradually, and the cork slowly rolls along the side of the neck until it k fair ly within the body of the bottle. Sometime during tbe last years of hk life the late John Quincy Adams wrote beneath a portrait of himself, some lines, of which the following k one: "An age of sorrow and a life of storm." These words were not written by afwretcbed outcast, dying in the poor-house, bnt by one of the marked favorites of external fortune.
