At this epoch it heran-e public by theirjointlz

heher that, as beceme his sition,Perote had -

lnd gentleuwn were thst ekeniak to witness s
performance never before exhibiteHl on any stage;
it was ealied the dance of friendship, invented
by Monsieur Perote, and immensely improved
by Signor Sarfuico.
The two on the-rope immediately began to
pot themselves in dancing position ; they were
both in the full dress of the period, with lace raf
fles, bag wig3, and swords. The eyes of the whole
house were fixed on them. Signor Sarfuico was
still grand, bat in beginning the dance of friend
ship, he seemed to have some difficulty with his
feet. Perote had perceived this, and made some
remark,, which.nobody else could hear; but it
aroused the Italian’s anger. He raised Ms band
as if to strike him ; the same instant, Perote’s
rapier was drawn, and before the audience
could comprehend that they had actually quar
relled, Sarfuico’s hanger was out also, and they
thrusting at each other on thetight rope. A pin
might have been heard falling in the crowded
house, where everybody sat still in his place, ga
zing np at the two fighting in the air. How
they kept their footing, the genius of mischief .
only knows. The concentrated hatred and mal
ice of their faces was fearful to see up there in
the flickering lamplight. Pass after pa3S, lunge
after Innge, they made at each other with the <
rapidity of lightning. Both were good swords
men, but Perote was the best of the two ; he
warded off the Italian’s thrusts with bis small <
rapier, aud positively seemed more certain of !
his footing than before the quarrel began ; till i
Sarfuico, making one desperate 1 inge, received a i
back-stroke which threw him off his balance, ]
and at the same moment attempted to grapple i
with his enemy. Down he went.and down went i
Perote. A cry of horror rose from the specta- ]
tors ; but some power had interfered in their be- ’
half, fur there was the Italian hanging to the
rope by his feet, and the Frenchman holding on -
to it with both his hands. “ Look, ladies and gen- 1
tleinen,” he cried, with a face of triumph suffi- i
cieut for having saved* Christendom ;“ behold I
how I have perilled my life, and still more my j
fame, to uumask deceat and vindicate scienc* !
Look at the straps attached to his shoe-soles, i
and passed over the rope, whose great-grand
father performed before Henri Quatre. I guess- i
ed it—I knew it, through the inspiration of my 1
science; and I die happy, since the villain is uu- i
masked." i
Monsieur Perote did not die happy or other
wise on that occasion. Before Ills parting
speech was done, the spectators had recovered ]
their senses sufficiently to give the alarm, and !
rush to the rescue with ladders, fire-escapes, and I
feather-beds to be fallen upon. He was got safe
ly down : so with Sarfuico, though it proved a i
more difficult business, and tlie doctors never (
could understand why he did not die of apoplexy 1
From that evening however his glory had de
parted—-a fact of which the the last of the bo- l
ble Florentine family was so sensible that he ,
departed also without sound of trumpet, and to i

HOW MR. Bl’EClIKlfu)ST HIS BOOTS. !
The following is in Henry Ward Beecher's !
best- vein :
The difference between 7 and 8 is not very ;
great; only a single unit. And yet that differ- i
ence has power over a man's whole temper, con-' ’
venieneo and dignity. Thus, at Buffalo, my boots I
were set out at night to be blacked. In the 1
morning no boots were there, though all the •
neighboring room3 had been served. I rang. I
rung twice. “ A pretty hotel—nearly eight 1
o'clock, going out at nine, breakfast to be eaten, <
and no boots yet." 't he waiter came. *ook my *
somewhat emphatic order, and left. Every min- 1
ute was an hour. It always is when you are out 1
of temper. A man in his stocking feet, in the 1
third story of a hotel. fiml3 Jiimaelf restricted in 1
locomotion. I went to the'door, looked up and
down the hall, saw frowsy chambermaids ; saw <
afar off the master of the coal scuttle ; saw gen
tlemen walking in bright boots, unconscious of 1
the privileges they enjoyed, but did not see any *
one coming with my boots. <
A German servant at length came, round and '■
rnddy-faeed, very kind and good natured, honest 1
and stupid. He informed me that a gentleman ‘
had already taken boots No 78 (mv number.)— I
He would hunt him up ; thought he was break
fasting. Here was a new vexation. Who was I
the man who had taken my number and gone '
for my boots? Somebody had them on, warm <
and nice, ancj was enjoying his coffee, while I 1
walked up and down, with less and less patience,
who had none too much at first. No servant 1
returned. I rang again, and sent energetic and ’
stoccato messages to the office. Some water
had been spilled on the floor. I stepped in it, 1
of course. In winter, cold water feels as if it 1
burned yon. Unpacked my valise for new stock- 1
ings. Time was speeding. It was quarter past
eight; train at nine, no boots, and no breakfast. |
I slipped on a pair of sandal rubbers, too large '<
by inches for my naked foot, and while I shuf
fled along the hall they played upland down on i
my feet. First, one shot off; that secured, the
other dropped oa the stairs ; people that I met,
looked as if they thought that 1 -was not well I
over last night's spree. <
It was very annoying. Reached the office '
and expressed my mind. First, the clerk rang
the bell three times furiously, then ran forth 1
himself, met the German boots, who had boots
79 in his hand, narrow and long, thinking, per- i
haps. I could wear them. Who knows but 79 «
had mv boots? Some curiosity was bee-inning
to be felt among the bystanders. It was likely I
that I should have half the hotel inquiring after s
my boots I abhor a scene. Retreated to my I
room. On the way thought that I would look <
at room No. 77's boots. Behold they were 1
mine! j’liere was the broken pull straps ; the
patch on the right side, and the very shape of i
my toes—infallible signs ! The fellow had mark
ed them 77, and not 78. And all this hour’s tu
mult arose just from the difference between 7 1
and 8. I
I lost my boots, lost the train, lost my temp |
er, and of course, lost my good manners. Eve- 1
rybody does that loses temper. But boots on, i
breakfast served, a cup of coffee brought peaca 1
and good will. The whole matter took a ludi
crous aspect. I moralized upon that infirmity 1
that puts a man's peace at the mercy of a Dutch- i
man’s chalk. Had he written 78,1 would have -
been a good natured man, lookiug at Niagara '
Falls in its winter dress. He wrote 77] and I
fumed, saw only my falls, and spent the day iu I
Buffalo ?
Are not most of the pets and rubs of life such |
as this ? Few men could afford to morrow, to
review the things that had vexed them yester
day. We boast of being free; yet every man
permits the most arrant trifles to rule and ride
him. A man that is vexed and angry turns the i
worst part of him into sight, and exhibits bim
self in buffoon’s coat and fool’s cap, and walks
forth to be jeered 1 And yet one’s temper does
worse by him than that. And men submit to it,
not once, but often, and sometimes every day 1
1 wonder whether these sage reflections will
make me patient and quiet the next time my
books are misplaced ?

GEO. N. SANDERS IN NASHVILLE.
The following amusing accouut of the last ap
pearance of the redoubtable Geo. N. Sander*
and theProvisional Government of Kentucky,
is from the Louisville Democrat, said by that
paper to be derived, as to fan and facts, frotn
Wm. H. Polk, of Tennessee:
George N. Sanders, Wm. H. Poi.k, or Ten
nessee, and the Provisional Government or
Kentucky.—There is no one better known in
the country as a scholar, politician, and wit, than
Wu». H. Polk, of Tennessee. He has a planta
tion some forty miles from Nashville, lives com
fortably, and is, with all, a resolute man in his
ipinions. He was the opponent of the eranes
:ent Harris, who has mysteriously disappeared,
md was voted for by the co-operationists in the
sieption for Governor of that State. Abont a
nouth ago notice came to him that he must
eave the State—a notice which, however, he
lid pot obey. His description of the terror of
he rebels on the taking of Nashville, is said to
ie supremely rich. Among other incidents, is
me of peculiar interest to us Kentuckians, con
lefning the fate of the late Provisional Govern
nent.
Colonel Polk, a few days before the arrival of
mr army at Nashville, and, indeed, before he
leard of the fall of Port Donelson, in going
town the road from his farm, discovered a fat,
agged, bushy-headed, tangled moustached, dila
lidated looking creature (something like an lt
ilian organ-grinder in distress), so disguised in
nud as to be scarcely recognizable. What was
iis surprise on a nearer approach to see that it
fas the redoubtable George N. Sanders.
George has met the enemy, and he was theirs
—not in person, not in feeling. His heart was
ost, his breeches were ragged, and his boots
howed a set of fat, gouty toes protruding from
hem. The better part of him was gone, and
;one it good distance.
‘ In the name of God, George, is that you ?'
aid the ex-Oougressman.
• Me !’ said the immortal George, 11 wish it
lasn’t; I wish I was anything but me. But
rhat is the news here—is there any one run
ling ? They are all running back there,’ poiut
ng over his shoulder with his thumb.
‘ No,’ said Mr Polk ; ‘ not that I know of.—
fou needn’t mind pulling up the seat of your
lantaloons. I’m not noticing. What in the
i — l are you doing here, looking like a muddy
jizarus in the painted cloth ?’
‘B. II,'said George to the Tennesseean, confi
entially, and his tone would have moved a heart
f stone, ‘ Bill, you always was a friend of mine.
knowed you a long while ago, and honored you
-cuss me it 1 didn t. I said you was a man
ound to rise. I told Jimmy Polk so ; me and"
imuiy was familiar friends. I intended to get
p a biographical notice of you in the Democra
ic Review, but that damned Corry stopped it.—
’in glad to see you ; I’ll swear I am.’
‘ Of course, old fellow,’ said the charitable
’ennessean, more in pity of his tones than even
f the fluttering eloquence, * but what is the mat
er ?’
* Matter' said George ‘ the d—d Lincolnites
rave seized Bowling Green, Fort Donelson, and
lave, by this time, taken Nashville. Why,’ con
inued he, in a burst of confidence, ‘ when I left,
lacks was worth a hundred dollars an hour, and
’o!k, (in a whisper) I didn’t have a d—d cent.’
The touching pathos of this last remark was
dded to by the sincere vehemence with which
t was uttered, aud the mute eloquence with
phich he lifted up a ragged flap in the rear of
lis person that some envious rail or briar had
oru from the position of covering a glorious re
reat.
‘ Not a d—d cent.’ repeated lia. ‘ and, Polk, I
ralked that hard-hearted town up and down, all
:ay, with bomb shells dropping on the street of
very lamp post—I'll swear I did, trying to.bor
ow some money, and, Polk, do you think there
Hasn't a scoundrel there would lend me anything,
iot eveu. Harris, and he got the money out of
he bunks, too V
‘ No !’ said Polk, who dropped in a word oc
asionally as a sort of encouruger.
‘ Bill.' repeated Sanders, • Bill, I said you was
i friend of mine—and a taleuted man—always
aid so, Bill. I didn't have a red. and I’ve walk
'd forty five miles in the last day by the mile
tone. and I haven’t had auythiug to bay a bit
o eat,’ he added with impassioned eloquence,
what’s a cursed sight worse, not a single drop
0 drink.’
This is complete. It is unnecessary to tell
low the gallant and clever Tennesseean took the
rayfarer home, gave him numerous if not innum
iruble drinks, and filled him with fruits of field
ind flesh of flocks.
When George was filled, however, he signified
>y numerous sigii3, and finally by words, that he
risbed the servants to leave the room.
* Bill.’ suid-he, ‘ I know you were a man with
• heart in your bosom ; I told ’em so. 1 said do
tetter man than Bill Polk could be found. 1
old ’em so.’
‘Told who toV asked Mr. Polk, rather our
irised at the sudden* and mysterious language,
iccompanied by the removal of the servants.
‘ Mr. Polk, I want your horse and carriage for
1 time,’ said Sanders.
* Certainly, .Mr. Sanders, if you want them.’
‘ Mr. Polk,’ said George, ‘ I do not appear be
ore you in any ordinary character to-day. I am
lothed with higher authority ; I am an Emissa
y-’
The tone aud manner indicated something
earful—perhaps the arrest'of his host.
11 am an emissary,’ repeated Mr. Sanders,
peaking iu very large capitals, ‘ from This State
>f Kentucky, and hope to be received as such,
['be fact is,’ continued he, coming down to the
r*voI ftf familv rorenflfm • T luff fha Pn\ri.
ional Government of Kentucky a mile or so
lack, on foot, finding its way southwardly, and I
lemand your horses and carriage in the name of
hat noble State.’
Of course the carriage was harnessed up at
ince, and Mr. Sanders proceeded to bring the
provisional Government to Mr. Polk’s house.
How shall we describe this party ? The Hon.
Jeorge W. Johnson, as much of a Clay man as
he sacred soil of Kentucky could afford, bat still
ireserving his. light and active step ; McKee,
ate of the Courier, following; Walter N. flald
rman, with all his industry and perseverance,
rying to keep np with his associate; and Willis
i. Machen, a vigorous, active, slightly sullen.
>ut in earnest, with eveiy boot he drew oat of
he snowy, muddy soil, giving a groan of fatigue,
magine them safely ensconced at Mr. Folk’s, on
heir road South.
‘ Mr. Sanders,’ said the Governor, with digni
ied sauvity, after the walnuts and wine ‘claimed
o be an acquaintance of yours, and we were very
;lad to send him forward.’
The Hon. Governor maintained throughout
hut easy, self possessed manner which charac
■erizes the gentleman.
The Emissary—for he onght to be known—1
shortly after suggested to the Provisional Gov
srnraent that he was “ broke,” and wished to re
present the Seventh Congressional District of
Kentucky—that is, the Louisville District, ‘ for,’
laid he, in bis persuasive, confidential tones,
that is the poly way I know of a man without
money to get to Richmond.’
A session was at once held of the State Conn
si), and It is oar pleasure to record that Mr. Sad
lers is now authorized by the Provisional Gov
ernment to proceed to Richmond and represent
pur interest in the rebel Congress, vice H. W.
Brace, removed orresigned.
'Mr. Polk at this time addressed the new Con
pressman, saying that he had a particular favor
to ask- ‘ Bill,’ said George to his host, speaking
pat of a fall heart and a full chest, ‘ Bill, yon are
» boy after my own heart; whatever request you
make I grant.’ * It is only a trifle,’ said Mr.
Polk, ‘ which you can easily grant, and which
will please yon.’ 1 It is granted,’ interrupted the
grateful Sanders ‘ I may be arrested,’ contin
ued Mr. Polk, within a few minutes, for disagree
ing with some measures which Governor Harris
has nrged upon the people.’ * Never mind that,’
said the impetuous Sanders, ‘ I’ll sthnd by you.’
* All I want,’ continued Mr. Polk, ‘ is for you to
return to Nashville as a hostage for my xcife and
family.'
‘Bill Polk,’ said George, gravely-but firmly,
• yon are a man I love ; I love you, and I love
your wife and family; but if ever I go back to
Nashville, may 1 be d—d.'
Of conrse there was ao reply to this and the
redoubtable George and the Provisional Gov
ernment soon went their way rejoicing.
Sick Hbidachi—Is sickness at stomach, n
tendency to vomit, combined with pain in aomn
part of the bead, generally in the left side. It
is cansed by there being too mnch bile in the
system, from the fact that this bile is manufac
tured too rapidly, or is not worked out of the
system fast enough by steady, active exercise.—
Hence sedentary persons, those who do not walk
about a great deal, but are seated iu the house
nearly all the time, are almost exclusively, the
victims of this distressing malady. It usually
begins soon after waking up in the morning, and
lasts a day or two, or more. There are mauy
causes; the most frequent is, derangement of
the stomach by late and hearty suppers; by eat
ing too much after a regular meal, (five hours
should, at least, intervene ;) eaticg after one iB
conscious of having had enough ; eating too
mnch of any favorite dish ; eating something
which the stomach cannot digest, or sour the
stomach. Any of these things may induce sick
head ache ; all of them cau be avoided. Over
fatigue, or great mental emotion of any kind, or
severe meutul application, have brought on sick
head ache, of the most distressing character, in
an hour ; it is caused by indulgence in spiritous
liquors. When a person has the headache, there
is no appetite ; the very sight of food is hateful;
the tongue is furred; the feet and bands are cold,
and there is a feeling of universal discomfort*
with an utter indisposition to do any thing what
ever. A glass of warm water, iuto which has
been rapidly stirred a tea spoon each of salt and
kitchen mustard, by causing instantaneous vom
iting, empties the stomach of the bile or undi
gested sour food, and a grateful relief is often
experienced on the spot; and rest, with a few

cure, especially if the principal part of the next
day or two is spent in mental diversion and out
door exercises, not eating an atom of food (but
drinking freely of c.old water or hot teas) until
you I'eel as if a piece of plain, cold bread and
butter would “ taste really good.” Nine times
in ten the cause of sick headache is in the fact,
that the stomach was not able to digest the food
last introduced into it, either from its having
been unsuitable, or excessive in quantity. When
the stomach is weak, a spoonful of the mildest,
blandest food would cause an attack of sick head
ache, when ten times the amount might have
been taken in health, not only with impunity
but with positive advantage.
Those who are “ subject to sick headache” eat
too much and exercise too little, and have cold
feet and constipation. A diet of cold bread and
butter, and ripe fruit or berries, with moderate
continuous exercise in the open air, sufficient io
keep up a very gentle perspiration, would, of
themselves, cure almost every case within thirty
six hours.—Dr. Hall.

A Good Story.—A very good story is told
at the expense of Col. J. K. Comstock, who for
many years was widely known as the “ prince of
landlords”— and proprietor of the Olean House,
Clean, New York. Many years ago Comstock
was “ legally served” for violating the liceuse
law. The trial was had at Portville, and the
justice, after hearing the proofs, entered up a
judgement against the “ host” of the Olean
House. Of course John was “ hopping mad.”—
He would carry it up and blow judgement to
“-?” Hon. Benj. Chamberlin was the
first Judge of the county—and shortly after the
events above partially narrated, the Judge put
up for a night with Col. Comstock. After sup
per John unburdened himself to Judge Cham
berlain, relating very minutely, the circumstan
ces attending his conviction at Portville, &c.—
The J udge blandly, But strongly urged John to
carry the suit up to tbo Common Pleas—“ there
you are pretty sure to have justice done ye!”—
Having satisfied himself that Judge Chamber
lain would do him justice, Col. Comstock direc
ted his Attorney to appeal the case to the Com
mon Pleas of the County. In due time the case
was called, Judge Chamberlain presiding, who,
upon hearing the proofs, arguments, allegations,
&c., promptly affirmed the judgment of- the Jus
tice’s Court, to the utter confounding of Col.
Comstock’s attorney, who had anticipated an
easy victory for hid client. Not long after this,
J udge Chamberlain called again at the Olean
House, and Col. Comstock was, of course, glad
to see him. In the evening, “ mine host,” three
or four times sought to bring up his liquor case,
but the Judge evaded it, until Comstock bolted
right on to it thus :
Judge, you remember my liquor suit?" “ Oh
yes, John, very well,” replied the Judge. “ You
advised me to carry it up to your Court, didn't
you, Judge? ” said Comstock.
“ Yes, I did, John,” said the Judge, “ for I
wanted to see you fairly dealt with.”
“ The deuce you did 1 but you beat me though
didn’t you ?” inquired Comstock in his peculiar
ijr ocui^uiii” mail urn.
“Yes, John,” said the Judge, looking Com
stock very seriously in the face, “ The fact is,
John, your liquor for the past year has been so
confoundedly poor that I had'nt the courage to
reverse the judgment I”
John was silently satisfied, and has never car
ried np any more liquor suits.

Recent Inventions.—Jacob Longyear, of
Grass Lake, Mich., has an improved boring ma
chine, which is designed for boring a number
of holes simultaneously, or at one operation, such
for instance, as are required in blind stiles to re
ceive the tenons of the slats. The object of the
invention is to facilitate this kind of work and
reduce the cost of construction of the manufac
tured article.

proved roller press for photographs, and another
to Isaac B. Woodruff, for a clock case design.
Gilman Joslin, of Boston, Mass., for improve
ment in heaters.
John Christy, of Baltic, Ct, for improved
smoothing iron. The object of the invention is
to provide a ready means of detaching the han

can be made with 1 pert by weight of the chlo
rate of potash, 1 of yellow prnssiate of potash,
and 1 of dry white sugar, carefully mixed to
gether in a mortar, with a wooden spatula. Each
substance should be reduced to powder by itself,
otherwise it would be dangerous to pound them
together. If to this powder 1 part of sulphur
is added, a good percussive powder for guns is
obtained. .

PARSON BROWNLOW ON SECESSION.
At the recent meeting at Nashville, at ^ich
Andy Johnson made a speech, Parson Brownlow
spoke. We give his speech in foil >—
Gentlemen : I am in a sad plight .to ,M*
much of interest—too thoroughly incapacitated
to do justice to you or myself. My throat has
been disordered for the past three yhars, and I
have been compelled to almost abandon public
speaking. Last December I was thrust tritoim
uncomfortable and disagreeable jail—for whatT
treason / Treason to the bogus Confederacy*;
and the proofs of that treason wen articles
which appeared in the Knoxville Whig in May
Inst, when the State of Tennessee was a member
of the imperishable Unioa. At the expiration
of four weeks, I became a victim of the typhoid
fever, and was removed to. a room in a ament
dwelling, and a guard of seven men left’ me
company. I subsequently became so week AM
I could not turn over in my bed, and the guaed
was increased to twelve men, for fear t should
suddenly recover and run away to Ksatao||y.
Becoming convalescent in a measure, I was to
moved to my former place of confinement. One
day I was visited by some Confederate officer*,
who remarked, “ Brownlow, you should not be
here. Take the oath of allegiance to the Con
federate Government, which will not only entitle
you to a speedy release, but ensure your protec
tion.” “ Sir!” said I, “ before I would take the
oath to support such a hell-forsaken institution,
I would suffer myself to rot or die with old age.’’
Why, my friends, these demagogues actually
boast that the Lord is upon their side, and de
clare that God Almighty is assisting them in the
furtherance of the nefarious project. In Knox
ville and surrounding localities a short time since,
daily prayer meetings were held; wherein the
Almighty was beseeched to raise Lincoln’s block
adk, and to hnrl destruction against the Burn
side Expedition. Their prayers were partly an
swered. The blockade at Roanoke Island was
most effectually raised, a reciprocal of their sa
crilege divinely tendered.
Gentlemen, I am no Abolitionist; I applaud
no sectional doctrines. I am a Southern man,
and all my relatives and interests are thoroughly
identified with the South and Southern institu
tions. I was born in the Old Dominion, my pa
rents were born in Virginia, and they and their
antecedents were all slaveholders. Let me as
sure you that the South has suffered no infringe
ment upon her institutions. The slavery ques
uon was actually uo pretext tor this unholy, un
righteous conflict. Twelve Senators from the
Cotton States, who had sworn to preserve invio
late the Constitution framed by our forefathers,
plotted treason at night, a fit time for such a
crime, and telegraphed to their States dispatches
advising them to pass ordinances for secession.
Yes, gentlemen, twelve Senators swore ailbfti
ante in the day-time, and unswore it at night.
A short time since, I was called upon by a little
Jew, who, I believe, is the Secretary of Wa^of
the bogus Confederacy. lie threatened to hang
me, and I expected ilo more mercy from him
than was shown by his illustrious predecessors
toward Jesus Christ. I entered into a long cor*
respondence with this specimen of expiring hu
manity; but, from mercy or forgetfulness on
their part, I was permitted to depart with all
my documents in my little valise, which I hope
to publish at no distant day. Gentlemen, when
I started on my perilous journey, I was tore
distressed in mind, and exceedingly so in body;
but the moment my eyes encountered the pick
ets of the Union army, my depression decreased,
and returning health seemed suddenly to invigo
rate my physical constitution.
Gentlemen, secession is played out; the dog
is dead ; the child is born, and his name is Jefl.
Davis, Jr. My throat distresses me to such an
extent that I must decline farther remarks this
evening, but I shall make myself beard npon tho
next convenient occasion, which wilt probably
be ere the termination of the present week.
Taylor ys. Masox.—The elegant Miss Ma
son, daughter of a former President of tho Chem

fortune as an enterprising draper and tailor, ap
penred at a magnificent entertainment in royal
apparel. With that fastidious exclusiveness
for which the latest comers into fashionable cir
cles are the most remarkable, she refused va
rious offers of introduction, as she did not wish
to extend the inumber of her acquaintances—
her friends were few and very select.”
The beautiful Miss Taylor, radiant withgood
natured smiles, and once well acquainted with
Miss Mason when they went to the public school
in William street together, noticed the hauteur
of her ancient friend who was determined not
to recognize one who only reminded her of hor
former Tow estate. Bat Miss Taylor, the rogue,
as clever as she was pretty, determined to bring
her with a short turn, and not anbmit to baing
snubbed by ono whose ancestral associations
were no better than her own. Watching bar
chance when the haughty lady waa in the midel
of her set, Misa Taylor walked op, and with smiles
of winning sweetness, remarked :—
" I have been thinking, my dear Mian Mason
that we onght to exchange names.”
“ Why, indeed!”
“ Because my name is Taylor, and my father
was a mason and your name is Maaon, hut yoar
father was a tailor.”
There was a scene then, bnt there was no help
for it. The little Miss Taylor had the pleasure
pf saying a very cote thing which was soon re

wits wished to see her; but die proud Miss Me

Descent of tiie Eagle.—In “ Forest Crea

markable power possessed by the eagle of in
stantaneously arresifhg himself while dropping
through the air, at a certain spot, with folded
wings, even when descending from a height of
three or four thousand feet “ When circling ao
high up that he shows hot as n dot, he will sud
denly close both wings, and falling like an mv
lite, pass through the intervening space in a
few seconds’ time. With a burst his broad pin
ions are again unfolded; his downward progress
is arrested, and he sweeps away horizontally,
smoothly and without effort. He baa been seen
to do this when carrying a sheep of twenty-six
pounds weight in his talons, and Rom ao giidye
height that both the eagle and his booty were
not larger than a sparrow. It wu directly over
a well of rock in which the eyrie was built: and
while the speck hi the clouds was being examin
ed, and doubts being entertained as to tho par.
sibihty of its being an eagle, down ha came
headlong, every instant increasing in size, when,
in passing the precipice, oat flew bis mighty
wings i the sheep was fligig into the nest, and
on the magnificent creature moved, calmly and
unflurried, as a bark sails gently down the stream
