New York .Vim; A litter of pigs was born
in Patterson, Putnam county, in this State,
ast June. Their parents were imported from
Westchester county-. .where,:.hev Were known
as smart "com "tatherers. I'urthcr than this
Ule Jicdigree,has not been traced. Nothing
as noted about this litter any more than
about any other litter until after its purchase
by Dr. Louis Knox. One dt.y as he was lean
ing aganist the side of the pen he noticed
that two of the pigs, although they were
bright and of a more sociable tendency than
the others, were not getting tat.
Hello:" said lie, struck with a sudden
dea, "I'll make pets of you."
So he had them removed to his barn, in
which he kept his bah- heart his for-, his baby
car-lc hi i ball dogs and hi! other pets. Dr.
Rliox, who is about thirtv years of age, is a
graduate of the college of physicians and
surgeons of this city, and is a regular practi-
loner in fattcrson. At the tune he separated
these pigs from their fedows he did not
know what it was that prevented them from

had remarkably large brriin lolW. that Ihcy

Dr. Knox that his pets were kept poor by

also that of Wendell Phillips, of whom Mr,
Leland had said that he trtT, positively the
greatest eater .that ever sat at the table oi a
Saratoga hotel, and this at. a time Wheh Mr.
Phillips was deep in anti-slavery agitation.
Dr. Knox had no experience whatever in
the art, but he resolved to educate his pigs.

She called to the coachman to ufive oft at

A profound sensation has been created in
junior military circles of the empire by the
announcement that (his measure, which will
condemn many hundreds of matrimonial
candidates to long years of celibacy, is about
to la? submitted to the approval of tlie em
peror, and it is possible that his majesty, who
has practically illustrated his prediliction for
early marriages somewhat conspicously in
hia "own family, may refuse to sanction so
arbitrary an edict."
Mr. Favwrett fit ramming.
Artificial cramming being the besetting sin
of American education, some remarks recent
ly made by the English postmaster-general,
blind Mr. Kaweett, can be studied most prof
itably by parents and teachers. "Too much
reading and not enough thought!" was his
exclamation, after dwelling upon the evil
effects of attempting to cram the mind with
more than it can hold. He did not think it
would la- fair to throw the entire responsibil
ity ot this on teachers. their better judg
mcni was often controlled by the parents,
who wished their children to be taught an
unlimited number of things in a very limited
period. If parents would let their childdren
remain longer at school, and be taught a few
subjects more thoroughly, the result would
be generally verv much more satisfactory
The idea of valuing knowledge only for its
money's worth in after life was to be guarded
against. The chief object was to train the
mind. Very often what was learned at
school was of no practical value afterward,
and yet it formed a valuable course ot men
tal training. He could say this from his own
experience with regard to the study of niathe
matics. The best test of the 'skill of ;
teacher was the extent to which he was able
to discover what was the best subject to
develop tlie faculty ot each individual pu
pil. otiung could be a greater mistake
than for a voting man who bad gained a
little more education than his father to leave
his handicraft to seek employment ai
clerk. Such a course was doubtless some
times taken in the following of an idea that
his own social position would be improved;
but it society could tairly be held responsible
for such tolly, he was afraid it would have
to answer for thousands being encouraged to
seek employment where that employment
was most difficult to be obtained.
tench them draw tinker, ha savs, la-cause after
all, he doubted their judgment in lietting. He
kept their proficiency uuiet for a time,
only allowing intimate mends. or men of in
lluence lit the town to play with them. At
length it leaked out that Suiiervisor Jame
tuvlor, a well-known litwver of the town
and a fine euchre player, had been
beaten. This spurred up County
t-lerk (Ml ward iliouipson to try a
hand with the pigs, and he, too, was
vanquished. Overseer of the Poor Uriah
Uoodsell made a rash effort in defence of
human against brute intelligence, but Annie
llindle broke his hear'; with three straight
euchres. With like celeritv was the conceit
taken out of Highway Commissioner lavM
reck by Horace HrecleV.
These triumphs were mused abroad, and
so many Putnian county people came to see
the pigs and take a hand at euchre with
them that it put the idea into Dr Knox's
head to exhibit them at the county fair. He
did so, Mild found that the exhibition was so
successful that he was led to erect a tent at
the Daubury fair, across the Connecticut
line, ten miles awav.
ltie doctor was lotintl on f ridnv atop ot a
barrel, outside of his tent, discoursing of An
nie Hindle. On his right" Charley Howes
balanced himself on a slack rope and whirled
a plate in the air on the end of a stick.
When little Master Clifton made the ladies
and gentlemen laugh with his funny banjo
solos, Annie Hindle grunted with satisfac
tion. Charlev Howes performed amazing
feat- with the plates and balls, and the baby
bear and the baby eagle were admitted. At
hist Dr. Knox stepped up to the grated cage
in which the pretty pig was confined. She
is on exhibition alone, because Horace
(ireclv broke his leg a short time ago while
going through his exercises in Dr. Knox's
barn. His leg ran through a hole in the
barn floor. The doctor set it, and put it in
plaster of Paris. It healed rapidly, and now
the plaster has been removed, but the
leg is not strong ehotigh to allow
Horace to go on the exhibition plat
form yet. When Annie was let out of the
Cage she trotted to the edge of the platform,
hut alter casting a couuetish glance at the
audience she ran back to the doctor's feet
He fed her a kernel of corn. On the edge of
the low platform was row of square pieces
oi leather with numbers painted upon them
In response to questions Anuie trotted alsiut
and picked these cards up in an apparently
uncertain order, as for example, the first,
sixth, lourlh, second, and so on. ihe cum
bers she picked up were in each case correct.
Her answers showed that she was four months
old, that there were stven days in a week,
lour weeks in a month, .Son days in a year,
and (and after looking at the doctor's watch)
that it was 11:45 o'clock. Next a row of
ards containing wortls was laid down. By
ticking up these cards in irregular order, in
response to questions put by the doctor, An
nie llindle informed the ladies and gentle
men that she was in love; that what she was
in love with was com: that Mr. Mctiovern
(apparently a suppositious iierson among
the siiectatorsl waf in love with ram, and
that when he took too much of it it made
him drunk.
"Can vot tell the I sdies and gentlemen who
will be the next President ?" asked the doctor.
Annie promptly picked up "Yes."
"Who is it to be?''
Annie Hindle did not hesitate, but went
straight to the card yn which ''Hancock" was
painted in large letters, this feat was greeted
with loud applause. Annie also informed
the spectators that she was at present a

it reached its present place. The contempla

A Calcutta dispatch to the London Thne
says: "iSaini ial, a mil station in tne o.u-.
maon district, and the summer headquarters
of the north West province, government, was,
on the afternoon of the 18th, the scene of a
terrible catastrophe, tt order to understand
the details; it is necessary to explain that the
lace diflers in one important respect trom
other Himalayan taniinna. Instead of being
erched on a series ol run-tops, nge nimia,
lugBoorie, and Darieeling, Naini Tal lies for
the most part in a Bmall basin, the greater
part of which is occupied by a lane aooui a
mile long, and which is dominated on all
sides by lofty mountains. Landslips pn a
small scale have been matters of not infre-
lUent occurrence there, and it has been often
pointed out thai matiy of the houses were
moat unsafe. No serious measures, however;
have ever been taken to prevent accidents,
and up to the end of the week before last the.
regular inhabitants and a crowd of summer
visitors continued to live in a lool s para
dise: The stntioni has the reputation
of being the prettiest in the Himalayas.
It is the onlv one in which lake and moun
tain scenery is combined. Naturally it is a
lavorite resort of visiters, and up to me mo
ment of the accident their numbers were be
ing daily increased by people running up
from the plains lo spend the autumn holidays
in the hills. Rain began to fall heavily at
Naini Tal on the evening of Thursday, the
16th: and continued almost without inter
mission till noon on Sunday, the liith. It is
said that the gauge showed a fall of So indi
es itt 40 hours. On Saturday mormmf the
danger first became apparent even to the
most careles?. A small landslip occurred
near the Yictoria hotel, carrying away an
out-building and killing an ayah and child.
Mr. Taylor, the magistrate in charge of the
station with a body of poliee and a working
party from tne depot, under laptain itaoers-
ten, Thirty-fourth loot, station staff otneer,
immediately repaired to the spot and com
menced to clear away the debris, and try to
divert the course of a torrent which threaten
ed tile hotel ritld ionle other houses. The
hotel was full of visitors, ihcllidiriR Mf. Jus
tice itnd Mrs. Strriight. The warning in the
morning gave thcui all time ioseek safety else
where, but some, Unfortunately, sought shelter
in the library a portion of the assembly
rictus building cloefely to the lakfe. About
1 :30 the great catastrophe happened. An eye
witness thus describes it: 'A noise, a vision of
parting earth and moving trees, a rush of
matter toward the lake, a roar of water and
of falling material, and then a deep brown
smoke, rising in slow wreaths through the
gloom and furious rain. A great wave of
water, caused by the precipitation of part of
the assembly rooms and ail immense mass of
earth into tlie lake, fwepl across its length
some five feet high. It dashed over the
sluice-gates at the entrance of the gorge with
such power as to sweep awny several iiersons
standing by them. Sir Henrv Kamsay, com
missioner of Kumaon, was all but carried
away by the wild rush of the waters.' .-.-I ws
"A correspondent of the Pioneer gives a
most graphic account, which I abridge as fol
lows: 'At 1 o'clock all seemed well, and the
working party were busy at their task at the
bottom of the precipitous ascent which over
ltuttg the hotel, About 1 :SQ Kdini Tal was
startled by; a siidderi and sullen roar, louder
than -the sitilultarteouS entsh of heavy guns,
followed by a prolonged rumbling as ol dis
tant thunder, ahd then B ati omirious silence.
Yast clouds of dust rose heavenward through
the murky atmosherc, enveloping in one
dense shroud the tract of ground from the
hotel to Bell's shop, and onward to the as-
semblv-rooins and the lake. The whole
place shook as though an eathqiiake hail
passed, the waters ol tne iage rose in a
moment far above their usual limit nid
swept in a massive wave toward the weir.
t hen all was still, rrotu the top oi tne
lower spur, under whicn the Victoria hotel
had stood a mintlte beforei dowit to the
edge pi the cricket grdund, nothing was to be
seen but a vast expanse of loose earth, be
neath which lay buried hotel and gartlen,
road and orderly-room. It was as though
some giant had dropped half a mountain
on the spot, blotting out in a moment
every feature of the scene, filling
up the hollows and reducing to one
dead slope all that lav below. Deep below
lay the working party. Not a vestige of them
was to be seen; only the lone hill-sidei silent
and dark. Meanwhile, the cricket and polo
grounds presented a strange contrast to the
gentle sweep above. Toward the pavilion
they were intact, save for the streams of
water pouring in every direction, but on the
other side was simply an enormous mound of
vast extent and varying higln at.-iiwld nuw
of broken walls and roofs, fallen trees, and
heaped-np earth in horrid confusion, with
spoils of the shop and orderly-room. Saddest
of all was the spectacle of the few corpses
that were visible among the turns, never
was havoc more sudden, more awful, or ihorfe
complete. Without n moment's warning.
without a premonitory rumble to awaken
suspicion, down came the enormone landslip,
burying in deadly embrace the hotel and the
working party behind) engulfing orderly-room
add shop, assembly-rooms and library, with
almost every living soul thev contained. Of
the number of people in the shop, all save
four, of whom three were women, were swept
away. A sadder scene I never saw. It was
worse than a battle-tield.' "

and traniiu it style ot beauty; she was, more
over, in Jeep mourning for a near relative, so
that uolhing in her dress any more than in
her deuicacor or aspect was calcinated to at
tract attention. Nor was the hour late, being
about ,i o c.ock in the afternoon. Mie was
standing 011 the sidewalk, and had just sig
nalled a cab, when a wcll-drcscd man came
up ami atco-leil her. hhc paid DO atten
tion to hint, but entered the vtiicle, and on
lioriing lie door and t n ruing round
she saw to her horror th.tl ber aggress
or had roae round to the other side of the
Marshal Razalae.
Marshal Razoine continues to write letters
denying the reports of his death, and his as
surances of his yet being alive revive discus
sions upon the universal verdict ot his coun
trymen that to blunder in the agony of your
country is a crime' and that the capitulation,
when three marshals of France, fifty gene
rals, til HK) inferior officers and 1 T.'i.OOO fight
ing mcti surrendered to 150,000 trermans. was
worse than a crime. When one remembers
that Bazaine's reputation for courage stood
high till that dav, one is tempted to ask
whether his pusillanimity on the occasion
can have lieen the result of temporary paral
ysis of the mind, such as, according to some
authorities, befell Xapoleon I. at Leipsic. In
that idea is Razaine's only excuse. Certainly,
his countrymen treated him with a clemency
that reflects honor on their, national charac
ter. Had, he been on Englishman or an
American he would have been shot w ithout
mercv. After the terms of the capitulation
had been signed an officer asked Bazaine "if
he was to destroy the eagles. Monsieur,
replied the marshal, "there are questions
which it is permitted to ask, but not to an
swer." The officer hesitated to act on the
hiit; nor did it matter much, for the glory
of the eagles had departed.

New York Tribune: Rev Win. H. Hnrlbut
former Unitarian clergyman of Boston, now
editor of the Wmtt newspaper, is in Indian
apolis. He went to Win the victorv. and re
mains to administer consolation. He ought
to sing his mourning friends some of his own
old hymns. Here is one, for instance, which
he wrote many years ago, when he must have
forseen this very hour in a vision:
With weary hearts we ask
Some rest in which our souls may cease
From life's perplexing task.
We weep ret none is found ;
NVe weep yet hope grow faint,
And deeper in its mournful sound
Goes up our wild complaint.
That's so. We haven't a doubt that is just
the way yon feel. But 'pluck up courage.
This chastening, though for the moment
grievous, will do you a world of good. You
told all abotlt it in another of yonr hymns
No. 494, of the Boson Colleetiim. You wrote
it for the churches, but you'd better squander
it now on tne Democrats:
We will not faint ; if heavy hardens bind ui,
They press no harder than our souls can bear.
The thorniest way is lying still hehintl us,
We shall be braver for tne past despair.
D, not In douttt shall he our journey s ending!
Sin. with its fears, shall leave us at the last ;
All its best hopes tu glad fulfilment blending.
Life shall be with us when the licnth is passed.
True for you ! But the death must first be
passed. And so, perhaps, there is a better
nvnin for vour case than anv of your own.
Try a bar or two of thisi
My thoughts ou awful subjects roll,
liaranatlon and the dead.
Better still ! Desert your task as spiritual
adviser you rc used to desertion, anyway
come back to ew lork, abjure politics, and
take a business vou understand. You can
probablv make the best puzzle paper in th
United States. You don't know anything
alt. mt politics, to be sure, but you have
prettv taste lor conundrum, ami, liesutes, vou
had great skill in printing servant-girls'
wants free. Do this; buy a fresh copy of the
peerage, expound to the great unwashed the
difference between a baron and a baronet
sing over your own hymns, and be at peace.

summer travel, as he takes pams to intorm

and the parlor was speedilv deserted. Dr
Prime remonstrated with the landlord, and
received this reply: "The parents teach
