Butler writes as fol lows to the Wisconsin Stale Journal : One hundred and fourteen copper imple ments have just been placed on deposit in the Historical Society. The whole number before accumulated tbero in the last twenty-seven years was thirteen The rarity of tools wrought from copper will be clear to every one who will ask the first man be meets two questions, namely: "Did you ever see a stone spear-head ?" and "Did you. ever tee .1 copper spear-head?" To the first ques tion the answer will bo "Yes ;" .and to the second "No." The collector of the copper deposit now with the Historical Society had been gleaning stone handi work for fourteen years before he espied ihe first specimen of wrought copper. According to the first six reports of the Peabody Museum in Cambridge, Mass., that repository contains only two specimens oi American copper one a breastplate, and the other a bracelet, both from Kentucky. Rcpt. II., 15 p. The principal relics of this sort which have been exhumed in Ohio are ten bracelets, one chisclj and two hatchets in Mound City (near Cbillicothe). One may be found at Beloit College, none at the State University, and about half a dozen in Dr. Lapham'a cabinet. It would be foolish to boast before further inquiry, but present appearances war rant the hope that Wisconsin will prove richer thau any other State in materials for throwing light on the prehistoric periord of America. But some curiosities combine rarity and worthlessness in equal proportions. It is easy, however, to show that our copper tools are rarieties of quite anoth er sort. They mark stages in human progress, from the stone to the bronze age, and they aflord all the light we have concerning it in the ages before history and tradition. Some of the cop pers were clearly hammered that is, tliey show metal elaborated as if it were stone, and hence, according to some, they still belong to the age of stone. To others they will mark the first step in the transition from the stone to the cop per age. In other instances the copper without flaws or lamination, and striped or rough, as if with mold marks, gives evidence of smelling. If smelting is proved", we have the metallic age pure, simple and perfect. If any of our tools prove to be smelted and chemical professors will soon set tle this point they will euablo us to make a unique exhibit at the Philadel phia Centennial, and they will attract to us archaeological visitors from beyond the Atlantic Tools of unalloyed cop per are among the rarest of all antiques. The only collection known to the learn ed archaeologist, Sir John Lubbock, is in the Royal Academy at Dublin, and that contains less than thirty specimens. (Prehistoric Times, p. 28). We can show many more. But should Wisconsin cop pers turn out to be alloyed they will yield still more historic fruit. The alloy in European coppers has mainly led to the inference that Europe derived metal lurgy from Asia, and that not till after hardening alloys had come into use. A similar inference regarding prehistoric connections between Asia and America may gain as much credence, and with as good reason. The copper treasures which will soon be open for study in the Wisconsin Cap itol will be hailed by archaeologists as a new revelation. But it is by no means complete. It is the result of four years' research by one man F. S. Perkins and that in only oue-fin.li of our coun ties. It cannot be more than the first fruits of a more abundant harvest. Keep it then before the people grangers atid anti-grangers that by sending to the Historical Society the nondescript cop pers they hve plowed up, they can each add some link to a chain of investigation which has girdled the globe already, and is daily stretching backward further and further, and will yet unfold secrets which have been hidden so long that they seem sealed by the angel of the Apocalypse. Even those who are not worth a copper will do a favor by writ ing the writer or any member of the Historical Society informing us who are the possessors of antique metals. on the letter boxes that. hang from the lamp posts. I fnllirvfed him from the Capitol to the Treasury, and on every letter box he wrote different characters, crossing the street whenever he saw a box on the other side. On the lid of one were characters like these: 0 52 x CO. This man has had a strange, sad his tory. Fifteen years" ago ho wa a mem ber ot Uongress from one of the new Western States the first representative the State sent to Congress. He had ri'cn to that position from the printer's case, having been a compositor and edi tor and was one of the founders of the Typographical Union. He was a taeni ae r of the first Territorial Legislature in his State; assisted in framing the State Constitution, and was elected to a place on the Supreme Bench, which he declin ed, in order to accept a nomination to Congress. He was a man of rare orator ical powers, but. an idealist. So vision ary, so chimerical were his schemes and theories, so unsafe his judgment, that his career in Congress, while brilliant from several bursts of eloquence, was a failure when judged from a practical common " bense stand point. He was de feated when a candidate the second time, and defeat killed him. For the benefit of his health his friends obtained a consulate abroad for him, but his dis appointment, and the continual misery to a diseased imagination unseated his reason, and lie has grown from sentt mentalism to lunacy. Several years ago he left his wife and children, imagining them to be the millstone that hung about his neck, and has since made his uome wiin relatives, inrougn tne in fluence of Charles Sumner and Henry Wilson, his wife obtained, a position in one of the departments, which she now holds. Two years ago ho became sus picious of the motives of an ex-Senator who had befriended her, and shot him in the street, but the wound of his bullet was only n slight one, and although indicted, he has never been tried for the crime, nis history, so sad, yet so strange and romantic, is known only to a few, but his face and peculiar Yellow hair are familiar to every one in Wash ington. Lady Jane Grey. A Sad History. Many old Kansans will 'recognize, in the pen-picturo portrayed below, taken from a Washington letter to the Chicago Inter-Ocean, one of the brightest minds and purest men that adorned Kansas in the early days: Among the throng of spectators at the opening on Monday, was a slight poorly dressed man, with long yellow hair, combed out into a great cloud like Frail Frou'ii. He is an object of interest in Washington, and more than that, an object of infinite pity. His form is thin aud quaint: his step nervous and clas tic ; his manner abstracted ; his . hands twitch convulsively when they should be at rest, and his face, in repose, is like the picture of Adam in "The Passion Play at Oberammergau." His days are spent in the galleries of the House when Congress is in session ; and during recess at the Congressional library and in the various newspaper offices. Frequently he is seen hurriedly pacing the street with an absent air; and I saw him the other day marking queer hieroglyphics Here is a picture of Lady Jane Grey, drawn by Mr. Froudc in his history of England : "Jane Grey, eldest daughter of the Duke of Suftolk, was nearly the same age with Edward. Edward had been precocious to a disease; the activity of his mind had been a symptom, or a cause of the weakness of his body. Jane Grey's accomplishments were as exten sive as Edward's; sho had acquired a degree of learning rare in matured men, which she could use gracefully and could permit to be seen by others with out vanity or consciousness. Her char acter was developed with her talents. At fifteen she was Ictming Hebrew aud could write Greek; at sixteen she cor responded wi.h Bullingcr in Latin at least equal to his own- but the matter of her letters is more striking than the language, and .speaks more for her than the most elaborate panegyrics of admir ing courtiers. She left a portrait of her self drawn by her own hand ; a portrait of piety, purity, and free noble inno cence, uncolorcd even to a fault with the emotional weakness of humanity. While the effects of the Reformation in England had been chiefly visible in the outward dominion of scoundrels and in the eclipse of the national character, Lady Jane Grey had lived to show that the defect was not in the Reformed faith but in the absence of all faith that the graces of St. Elizabeth could be rivalled by the pupil of Cranmer and Ridley. The Catholic saiut had no excellence of which Jane Grey was without the prom ise ; the distinction was in the freedom of the Protestant from the hysterical ambition for an unearthly nature, and in the presence, through a more intelli gent creed, of a vigorous and-practical understanding." A Vision of Universal' Brotherhood- I am sometimes cllel"'an enthusiast and a dreamer. Perhaps I am.. At least I shall enter into no discussion about it. But I confess that I-do look forward, or dream of the coming of that hour when the bully among nations will be treated as the bully among individuals is treat ed, when the true gloryot a pecfple will be their industrial, social and intellect ual progress ,and their"3! peaceful con quests; and when aggressive war will be condemned by the unhersal voice of civilized men. The first; great step to wards this consummate end is the cor dial uuderstanding between England and America. Let the, Jiations, com prising all the English speaking people on the face of the earth, agree iu this one sentiment, that war between them shall never be, and that.' the .misunder standing that arise shall be settled by impartial arbitreH, and an in fluence of incalculable force, will be created in favor of peace ill over the world. For my part I'would ndt leave an understanding put into words; a treaty of indefinite duration, though revocable on notice, pledging the faith of the two nations that whenever a point of difference may spring up between them, upon which they cannot come to an agreement, the difference shall be determined by the arbitrament of others. Then, indeed, should we behold the dawn of a new day; the freest and strongest of the nations would set an example to all the rest and whatever might happen on the continent of Europe, it is almost certain, that, at the very worst, the greater part of the world would remain in peace. This is, if you please my dream. May the dream turn out to be prophecy, and the prophecy ripen into fulfillment. D. D. Field. How Henry Clay Was Sold. Some time before the- introduction of railroads, Gov. Metcalf represented in Congress a district of which Nicholas county was a part. Mr. Clay was Sec retary of State under President Quincy Adams. The two distinguished poli ticians agreed to travel to Washington in Gov. MetcalPs carriage. While pas sing through the State of Pennsylvania, Mr. Clay told Gov. Metcalf that ho had received intimation that in a certain town they were approaching he would be honored with an ovation by the citi zens. Just before coming to the town Gov. Metcalf, who had all along been driving; suggested to-Mr.- Clay that, he take the reins and drive, as he himself was tired. Mr. Clay readily consented, whereupon the governor took, a back seat in the carnage. Mr. Clay drove the team successfully into the town, and they were met by a large concourse of people. Gov. Metcalf alighted from the carriage, and. being asked whether he was Mr. Clay, answered yes, that he was glad to meet them, etc., and at this the crowd fairly hoisted him upon their shoulders and triumphantly started with him to the place of reception. Looking back at Mr. Clay, who still sat in the carriage somewhat nonplussed, the gov ernor cried : "Driver, take those horses to the stable and feed them." The mer riment of the crowd when the joke was discovered, can be better imagined than described Mr. Ulay, lnmsclt, as heartily entering into it as the rest. Carlisle Democrat. The Horse That Tried to Jump a River. Some strange hunters lately appeared near Bowling Green, Ky., with horses and hounds and -camp equipage, and pitched their tents en the shores of Green river. Thoy were as awkward as deer hunters as some of our sportsmen clerks are chasing the wayward lox. The banks of Green River, twenty -five miles below Bowling Green, are precipitous. In some places the bushes extend nut upon the jutting cliffs that overhang tltc deep waters. They hide the river almost to its brink. One of this party of amateur hunters rode off by himself one morning and started a deer in the brush. He fired one shot, and then the other hunters standing on a promontory in full view of the river, heard a rushing sound, as of a galloping horse, in the woods near them. They all strained their eyes, and saw a deer come up to the brink, decide not to leap, and turn sensibly aside into the thicket. The horso and rider plunged on, drew nearer and nearer to the brink at full speed, and tried to jump the river. It was too late to stop, and over he went. This feat was performed in full view of the other hunters. They heard a splash in the depths below and the horse and hunter were swallowed up effectually, and the hunters were transfixed with terror for. a moment, but presently they limbered up 'when they 6aw the horse appearing bove the surface of the flood and the rider still firmly seated on the animal's back. The noble horse headed for the shore and made it. Si. Zouit Republican. Journalism. A Dog Mail-Carrier. a uiasgow man recommends as a means of preventing the personal injury and damage to property which result from railway collisions, that passenger carriages should be constructed of strong vulcanized India rubber, which, he says can be moulded up to any thickness and degree of elacticity. The carriages would be rouuded at the endsjnstead of having buffers attached ; and these convex ends would become concave in collision, but would not jerk the caraiages off the rails like buffers. He proposes that the train should be united by a wire rope passed through eyes underneath each carriage to a windlass on a brake behind, which would tighten it up to any tensity. A young man 'in the cast who is par ticular about his washing, the other day wrote a note to his washerwoman, and one to.his girl and by a strange fatality put the wrong address on each envelope, and sent them off. The washerwoman wtis well pleased at an invitation to take a ride the next day, but when the young lady read, "If you muss up my shirt bosom, and rub the buttons off the collar any more as yon did the last time, I will go somewhere else," she cried all the eve ning, and declares that she ,will never speak to him again. Who carries the mail from Os-tra-gou-nosh, away up on the Minnesota line, to the nearest frontier settlement in Da kota? Whv, Boss, a mongrel kind of dog, an apparent ultimate result of the mingling of every kind of dog found in the Territory. Boss' master a year ago was a drunken half-breed, who was paid $3 a trip in summer, and $5 in winter for taking the mails a distance of some sixty miles. Boss' master was honest, and never purloined a letter, but he had a way of drinking on the road, and the mails were often delayed. Last January the mail-carrier never reached his desti nation, but was found frozen stiff in a snow-bank three miles beyond Jobley's Kun. . Boss was keeping guard over his master and the mail. Now Boss runs the machine in bad weather. All that has to be done is to take Boss and secure the letters around his neck in an oilskin wrap, and away goes Boss to the end of the mail route on the biggest kind of a lope. There is no .use of starving Boss, like people do pigeons, to get him to work, though he does expect a feed at the conclusion of the journey. No one as yet is intriguing for Boss place. Sixty-two miles as the crow flies, carry ing the mail through the snow, i3 not a position mast office-seekers care for. St. Paul Pioneer Press. The conductor of a public journal who faithfully performs his duty generally leads to a toilsome and thankless life. With a firm purpose to do equal and exact justice, he arouses strotig antagon ism and makes life-time enemies of many who, if he wero engaged in any other pursuit, would be among his best friends. If he comments with ju-t severity upon the acts of those win have been chosen to administer public affairs, he makes more enemies than friends by so doing. If he ignores or paliates the real or ap parent derelictions of duty on the part of the servants of the people his motives arc impeached and liis friends alienated. If he tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth regarding subjects in which the public are interested there are often times those who think that this or that detail ought to have been omitted, and the list of his downright enemies or lukewarm friends is again increased. If he utters an honest opinion on a subject of public concern and afterwards changes his views and gives expression to tlte thoughts and conclusions which further light and more mature reflection have convinced him are correct, he is accused of inconsistency and an intention to ac complish a purpose detrimental to some body's interests. 'We have hinted at only a lew ot tne obstacles ana uiuicuiucs with which the editor of the period comes in contact. But there is a law of com pensation that sets all things even, and the faithful journalist receives his share of its benefits in the end. Spirit of the Times. Xat Agreeable Resdiag for .Beer Drinkers mo worst results irom acctuenia in London hospitals are said to be in the cases of draymen. Though they are ap parently models of health and strength yet, if one of them receives- a serious injury, it is nearly always necessary to amputate, iu order to give him the most distant chance of, life. The draymen have the unlimited privilege of the brewery cellar. Sir Ashley Cooper was once cal led to a drayman, who was a powerful fresh-colored, healthy looking' man, and had suffered an injury in his finger from a small splinter of a stave. The wound, though trifling, suppurated. He opened the small abcess with his' lancet. He found, on retiring, he had left his lancet. Returning for it," be found the man in a dying condition. The man' died in a short time. Dr. Gordon says: "The mo ment beer drinkers arc attacked with acute diseases they are not able to bear depletion, and die." Dr. Edwards says of beer drinkers: "Their diseases are always of a dangerous character, and in case of accident they can never undergo even the most trifling operation with the security of the temperate. They most invariably die tinder it." Dr. Buchan says: ".Malt liquors render the blood sizy and mint fur circulation : hence pro ceeds obstructions and inflamation of the lungs. There are tew great bcer-driukers who arc not phthisical, brought on by the glutinous and indigestible nature of ale and porter. These liquors inflame the blood and tears the tender vessels of the lungs to pieces. Dr. Maxson says : "In toxicating drinks, whether taken in the form of fermented or distilled liquors are a very frequent predisposed cause of dis ease." The hospitals of New York show an equally unfavorable record of the intemperate, and the private practition ers everywhere have the same experience. Sanitarian for January. What Year is Tils? Elk Slio.tiufr in Colorado. Tweed's Memory of Faces- Mr. J. R. Pound returned this week from a trip to northwestern Arkansas, bringing with him 2.30 bead of sheep the property of himself and Mr. Dornblaster. The sheep are to bo wintered in Duck Creek township. Messrs. Pound .and Dornblaster intend visiting other sections of the country next spring and buying at least 1,000 more sheep. They feel sanguine that this.part of the country is well adapted for- sheep, and -propose to engage in the business to an extent that will render it profitable. Wilson Coun ty Citizen. The New York correspondent of the Toledo Blade says : The Boss never for gets a face. He had learned that men esteemed it a compliment to be remem bered personally, and he practiced upon this information. Some years ago, at Albany, the writer had occasion to call upon Mr. Tweed, having met him fre quently, and having always found him ready to give any information that lay in liij power. An acquaintance said he would go, too, having only met the Tam many sachem once, and being desirous of renewing the acquaintance. Tweed met the writer cordially, and, then turning to his companion, called him by name and inquired after his little daugh ter. A flush of gratified delight spread over the gentleman's face, and he after ward expressed his astonishment at the recollection. It seems that nt the time they had first met the gentleman had his daughter with him, and she attracted Tweed's notice and he spoke to her. The incident boro its fruit. Tweed gained a firm friend by tho power of his memory. The courtesy cost nothing, and in its rank fruits proved to be very valuable. Elk are found iu' almost every part of the Park, generally in the timbered country, or on mountain slopes, singly, or in bands often or fifteen, according to the season. With proper care they can be stalked as near as one hudred and fifty yards, but a good hunter who "jumps" a herd at five hundred yards will bag three fourths of the number before they are out of range. When dressed they weigh 890 to 1,200 pounds ; but as a dozen tall fellows, their horns laid back, go crashing and thundering through the thick pine forest, leaving a storm of branches and dust in their wake, each elk" may easily estimated to weigh a ton. If wound ed at clo-o quarters in the timer, they are dangerous foes, and quick and accu rate shooting is needed unless the hunter prefers to climb a tree, which is an awk ward predicament, detrimental "to tern per and garments, and provocative of unfeeling remarks from comrades when one returns late in the night camp. The beauty and majesty of the stately creat ures require no description, and often will the hunter grieve over his glory laid low; yet elk steaks and roasts'are so nice, his hide makes such excellent buckskin) and his branching antlere form such an ex cellent trophy and memento, that tears arc seldom sited at" his demise. George town Miner. We are impelled to ask the question by finding Fn an Alabama paper an ad vertisemerit for a fugitive slave. Is it 1856 or 187&? As Mississippi overthrew the constitu tion and disfranchised the negroes bytho- v mode of conducting elections ; as Georgia disfranchised- them by the mode of.ar ranging the polling places so Alabama has defied the Thirteenth Amendment and re-established practical slavery by re-enacting the labor laws that were set . aside by reconstruction. By the new laws of Alabama colored men convicted of minor offenses can be sentenced to hard labor for a certain period and his services sold at auction to the highest bidder. This gives his purchaser about the same right over him as over a verit able slave, aud it is easy to see how such a law can be made the cover of endless abuses. How easy to catch the "appren tice" in some petty fault, magnify the charge, secure bis conviction again and thus renew the lease from time to time. It would not take much ingenuity to enable a white man to keep the unpaid ' services of a black delinquent for years in this way. That these laws were made, and are executed for tho explicit purpose of re storing slavery, such advertisements as the -following in; Alabama. papers abun dautly attMThia.aBe'appcars'in 'the Oxford; XlaVJn&unev V" 'Twenty Dolcabs Reward.

These eastern Kansas fellows' think they have made a remarkable discovery, and tho zeal of somo of them for a herd law runs almost to lunacy. Geo. W.

"I'll allow you thirty days in the workhouse." A writer in the Galaxy says : In most countries on the other side it i3 a general rule for the family to" put by something every year, perhaps half the income, for the future establishment of the children, and particularly of the girls, who a3sucb are less capable of making their way than their brothers. Here, we know, as a rule, tho parents improvidently live up to their income, bring up their child rcn in luxurious habits, and thus unfit them for tbat life of trial to which they arc destined. They are, in a word, soft ened instead of hardened. A ,common reply of the head of the family to the suggestion thai the future of the children should be looked after is that they will begiu life under the same circumstances as he did that is, with nothing forge t ting that the conditions of life arc' chang ed, and that it is'now imposssble for them to live as he once did. If a helping hand is given, singular to say, it is of tener to the mau than to the woman, .either in being admitted to the business of the fatheror in being started out on his own account. The sister must look out for herself. If she be handsome and attrac tive she may find a husband. If she be plain the chances are that she will remain a spinster. Now, it is the experience of the New as well as the Old World, that a marriage settlement does facilitate the marriage of such an one. The plumes of beauty are only for the favored men ; in other words all men cannot mary pretty women. Nor can a!l.girls marry an An-' tinons. Few probably.marry their beau- ideal in either sex. Many longing wo men wait in vain for Almavia with his guitar and moon song; many bachelors make bootless search for her "who was created for them." Hence the need of philosophy. The man must tako his nest with what he has in hand. The age is unpoetic and unheroic; he must couut the cost of a matrimonial venture if he be an honest orderly man, desiring to pay his way, and if he cannot get the ideal Juliet he must content himself with the more prosaic Mary.

"Arc yon connected with any show?""- "No." "And are you bu ing this animal for yotirselff "Yes." Barnum shifted about uneasily for a" moment, looked alternately at the man and the tiger, and evidently trying hi.s best to reconcile the two together. "Now young man," he finally said, "you need not take this animal unless you want to, for there are those hero who will take it off your hands." "I don't want to sell," was tho reply. "What on earth are you going'to dn with such an ugly beast if you have no show of your own, and are not buying for some one who is a showman V Well, I'll tell you," said tho purchas er. "My wife died about three weeks ago. We had lived together for ten years, ar.d I miss her." nc paused to wipe his eyes and steady his voice, and then added "so I've bought this tiger." "I understand you," said the great showman in a husky voice. Danbu'ry Xeux. Journalistic enterprise is not apprecia ted in Germany.
