pletely ignominious. The lineage of

the marriage of fieorge the First to
Sophia Dorothea of Zell. Burke in

the daughter of a great general," he
tays. "who became Duke (or Dictator)

forever prevent the house of Hanover

Had Junius, when he hurled his
invectives at the Duketof tirafton, lieen

how terribly galling might have lieen
his allusions to the position of the
present heir to the title! You will find
I by consulting the pages of Debrett or
■ Burke, that at the age of iJ3, the Karl
of Ku-ton, heir to the dukedom at his

Another luissalliance to liejnoted in
the ducal order is that of the Ducheis
of Newcastle aad Tom Hoblvr. On

that the queen closed the entree to the

was standing for two full-length like

are! It was the exhibition of these
particular masterpieces that first
awakened the Parisian public to the i
knowledgeof Whistler's genius.
I have l>een asked if the lturoness'
Burdett-t'outs' marriage was a mis-!
alliance, in view of the fact that her I
ladyship is not only a peeress in her
own right, but Is also heiress to two
other baronies. My aaswer is that de
cidedly her marriage is not a misalli
ance any more than were tho-e of Vis-;
count Mandeville, Lord Randolph;
Churchill and other aristocrats who i
hnve married Americans. Some'
Americans try their uttermost when I
abroad to prove that their particular !
families in America are better than
the common horde by reason of an
ancestry derived as thus and thns.
All folly! Who among them could
hope to outshine an Astor. descend
ant of a poor old fur dealer? And
what is the ancestry of the Vander
bilts, except the commodore, who ran
a boat liet ween New York and Staten
Island and gained wealth thereby?
These reference* to family greatness
bv Americans are in the worst possi
ble taste, and always arouse sarcastic
criticism in Europe".
A misalliance Is, speaking generally,
the most unfortunate circumstance
that can befall an aristocratic family.
Death is a mere passing sorrow.
"1 .Ike leaves on tree*, the race of man is
Now green In youth, now withering to the
Auother race the following spring supplies;
They fall sueceaslve and successive rise."
Hut the misalliance withers the sap
of the geneological tree. For husband,
a wife, and for children a mother, who
i» not received at court, is a family
circumstance full of bitter humilia
tion, which prevails not only through
their contemporaneous history, but
endures so long as that history con
tinues to be recorded.

Rudolph Ericsson, a yoang Mvede.
is employed in u drug "store in this
city. Before be came to America he
worked with hi* uncle in a gunpowder
factory in the old country, and to
gether tliey experimented to find a
new explosive that would lie as pow
erful a-dynamite but less dangerous
to handle" A few months ago young
Kricsson received a letter from his
uncle in which the latter stated that
his experiments had at last been suc
cessful. He Inclosed the formula of
the new explosive, and Uudolph got
it patented under the name of "ex
The new explosive took* like moist
comment. It can 1* made as easily
as eornineal can be cooked, and in
much the same way, I.nst week Mr.
Ericsson made a quantity of it in a
stove in Curran's drug store, and then
experimented with it before some |>er
sons wham he is trying to interest in
its manufacture. A" mass of rock at
shuttle Meadow mountain was se
lected as the scene ot theexperiments.
The first trials were to prove that th*
mixture could not lw* exploded in the
open air. A small tire was started,
and two pound* of cxtrsilite were put
in it. The stuff would neither explode
nor burn. It wa* then thoroughly
mixed with kerosene oil, when aliout
half »i it burned, but did not explode.
A small dynamite cartridge was in
serted in a roll of the stuff. The cart
ridge was exploded with a fuse, but
the extralife did not explode. When
some of the substance was place on a
flat stone and struck with a hammer,
the only result was to r*sluoe it to a
finer powder.
A hole two feet deep wa- drillled in
the hardest rock to be round in a neigh
boring quarrv. Three roll-of the ex
plosives, each containing three ounces,
were tampered down in the ftole and
connected with a fuse The explosion
shook the ground and the air was tilled
with living boulders. The result
achieved would have re. t ilred two
pounds of gunpowder or one pound of
dynamite, while only nine ounces oi
eitralite were used.
The manufacture of the explosive
will be commenced m New Itritain at

Hartford have decided to u-e it in the

Washington was attacked with an in

of the windpipe, called in the techni

disease commenced with a violent
r», accompanied with some pain in
upper and fore part of the throat,
a sense of stricture in the same part, a
cough and a difficult rather than a
painful deglutition, which were soon
succeeded by fever and a quick and
laborious respiration. The necessity

the general, he procured a bleeder in
the neighborhood, who took from his
arm in the night twelve or fourteen
ounces of biood He could not by an v
means be prevailed en by the family
to send for the attending physician till
the following morning. wr,o arrived at
Mount Vernon at about 11 o'clock on
."■aturdxy. Discovering the case to
be highly alarming, and forseeing
the fatal tendency of the disease, two
consulting physicians were immedi
ately sent lor. who arrived, one at
3 :30 and the other at 4 o'clock in "the
afternoon. In the meantime were em
ployed two pretty copious bleeuings, a
blister was applied to the part aflected,
two moderate doses of calomel were
given and an injection was adminis
tered which operated on the lower in
testines, bnt all without any percep
tible advantage, the respiration becom
ing -till more difficult and distressing.
I pon the arrival of the lirstof the con
sulting physicians, it was agreed, as
there was yet no signs of acc mulation
in the bronchial vessels of the lungs, to
try the result of another bleeding, when
about 32 ounces of blood were drawn,
without the smallest apparent allevi
ation of the disease. Vapors of vin
egar and water were frequently inhaled
10 grains of calomel were given,
succeeded by repeated doses of emetic
tarter, amounting in all to live or six
grains, with no other effect than a
copious discharge from the bowels.
The power of life seemed now mani
fe tlv yielding to the force of the dis
order; blisters were applied
to the extremities, .together
with a cataplasm of bran and
vinegar to the threat. Speaking, which
was painful from the now
became almost impo- ible; respira
tion grew more and more contracted
and imperfect, till at 11 30 on Saturday
night, retaining the full possession of
his intellect, he died without a struggle.
He was fully impressed at the be
ginning of his complaint, as well as
through every succeeding stage of it,
that its conclusion would l>e mortal;
submitting to the several exertions
made for bis recovery rather as a dutv
than for any ex|>ecta"tion of their effi
cacy. He considered the operation of
death upon his system as coeval with
the disea-e, and several hours before
his death, after repeated efforts to be :
understood, succeeded in expressing a
desire that be might be permitted to
die without further interruption.
During the short period of his ill
ness be economized his time in the ar
rangement of such few concerns as re
quired his attention, with the utmost
serenity, and anticipated hi- approach

whole life has I ■ecu so uniformly and

Mr. Joseph McNaaghton of High
street, Newark, ha.s at lca>t four lifths
of a large black snake thoroughly
tamed and docile. The other fifth
would have been lUmie-ticated, too,
had not Mr McNaughton found it
necessary to amputate it to -ave tbe
snake's life.
About four months ago be dis
covered the reptile lying among some
niMii-h at the foot "of an old -tone
wall about a mile from South Orange.
It was in a very low state of
health indeed, and on examin
ing it to ascertain the cause of
its indisposition Mr. McNaughton saw
a small brass ring almost Imbedded
in the flesh not far from the tail.
Someone had. evidently, slipped on
the ring when the snake was very
small, and then liberated the decor
ated serpant. The ornament had now
nearly cut the body in two portions,
but it was clear that the snake must
have died liefore the operation was
completed. Indeed, the tail end was
already dead.
Delicately and skillfully, Mr. Mc-
Naughton 'severed the parts with his
jienknife, and dressed the raw spot
carefully. He carried the snake home,
where it speedily recovered, and
evinced the liveliest gratitude and af
fection for its preserver, it soon se
canie the pet of the household. A
knob has grown at the tail end of the
body; but it cannot guide itself. It
moves slowlv, and with some difficulty,
across a room, but when it touches the
wall it must wait for some one to turn
it liefore it can proceed further. Mr.
McNaughton thinksthat when it shells
it- -kin it will develop a new covering
long enough to clothe the missing tail.
