Among- lLo pnssngors was a boy some fourteen years of age, who was returning from school to spend the va. cation at homo. Though he hud been termed a ''greeuhoro'' by Snubbs, yet ho was a bright, though tuodoat little fellow, nnd un observant listener. Snubbs proposed to diuo that day at tho inu, iu Iho little village where the boy resided. After which, he designed to walk a distaueu ol two miles, to tbe residence of 'Squire Smith, to whom he had letters of iutroduetiou Near the villiago was s luuutio asylum, from which patients ooeasionally'iuade tbelr escape, causing much alarm ia the vicinity. After ihe utrival of tbe conch at tho inn, tho boy took the road to 'Squire Smith's, and Wormed tho residouts nloug the way that a luoatiu had etcaped from tho asylum ; that lis was dospcruio,ii,od would knock tho brains out of any person within his reach. At tho fame time ho gavo sn accurate description of the manners and personul appeurance of Snubbs, and staled that he might more panic ularly is known by his iuquiriug tho way to 'Squiro Smith's, After dinner Snubbs eallie J forth In Ihe full possession of his ponderous intcllcot, with caoo flourishing a la baton, and with cigar in mouth. The road to Smith1 was wludinif. The landlord dirooied him a part of the way and informed biiu that beyond nny of tho inhabitants could pass hint slung. ns all wore acquuiutod with 'Squire Smith, After traveling the distance, ho halted at tho gats of a funn-houje, on tbe sloop of which sat sn elderly lady knitting, but who tad not obervJd his approach "Madam, whTyou pleaso inform mo which is tbe right way to 'Squire Smith's ?' Tbe old lady looked up, aod for a moment slartd in blank emasemcol. The kuilting work-dropped, her appeks foil from her forehead. Good graoions r' she scrtanjod, as sho flew iosido the bouse and bolted tbs doors. Soon after she appeared at a second-stury window, aod partially raising tha sash, exolaiuiod ' Oi you poor uotortuoato eritter. do go away from htro I lie sorry I do leol rr you I ' Why, madam, I'm a ttraoger here; merov w(h to inquire tbs right roftd to 'Squiro Smith'a.'' 0, yea, know all about it, Carpe, now, Ibat't a good follow, do go away. Uow your poor uothsr must (sal if she's a-livln yet!" Purtnor parley was useless ; Snubbs was convinced that the woman was Insane, aod bs passed on. In front of the next homo, a strong, muscular mso was engaged chopping wood.

Arriving on tho shore I found to my sorrow that tlioy were out of gun shot, nod to tire at tt)ut distance would bo sheer folly. Whilo I stooU eonisuipialtng what to do, a fox earns down lo the water's edge aud stood suuffiug tho air- My first thought was to shoot him, but on re flection I concluded to see what he .vo'ild do. The fox in the mean lime entered tho water and was swimming for the geese, which were huddled together ubout half a mile front tbe shore.

It was from tho army, too ; from s stranger, in a slrango reg itueut from a strange State. Sho wou dvred wh it it could mean. Sho didn't know wli.) tho writer was, but mndoj up her mind no harm could result from anawuiing hi letter, and consequent ly did so. Many letters followed. The soldier was modest and elegant in his language, and tho girl hud reason to respoct him. Tho soldier's letters, after a while be camo very interesting, and were looked for anxiously by tho sowing-girl. Iiitto with tlio soldier, llo whiled aw.iy many an othet wise monotonous hour writinj to bur. Many an otherwise gad and lonely evening sho ploaaunlly paused in scribbling to him.

Sho would sit and saw for hours, and wou-lor if ho would not wear some ol tho gar- mcnta sho was making, und tliiuk if sho woro certain lie would, how nice sho would make them. No use of lengthening out a short story. Souio such state of affairs as described existed until tho final tlisbandiug oftbo army. At that timo ho did not rotura via. tho city so dear to him, for tho treas ure it held, lie went borne first, aud wben be did go down, ho brought away tho sewing-girl as bis wife.

This Utile instrument, says the Jitunwl iifA'i'lint Vinni'stiy, is pro paiod in tho following wny Take a glass ubout ten inches in lougtli, nud one inch in diameter, fill it up with tbo following liquid : Two parts camphor, oue part uilrsto of pot ash, uud oiio part sal ammonia, ami dissolve in spirits of wiuc, and add wa ter until you have partially precipit atod the camphor, 'i he extremity ol the tube can bo left open or hermetic- any J-wscu ii.o glass tube thus pre - pared is then fixed iti n hori.ontal positiou against tho wall or a board. The changes in tho weather arc thus indicated ; 1, If tho weather i to be fine, tbo coruosition of the substance will re main entirely at the bottom of the tube, sud tbe above liquid will bo pci fectly clear and transparent '2. Hcforo the weather chnogca to become rainy the prccipiuto will rise by degrees, and small crysliliia'ions, siiuilur iu shapo to stars, will be scoo to movo ubout tho liquid. H. When ti mono is imminent the precipitate will rise to tho top of the lube, assuming the shape of a leaf, or nn assemblage of crystals j tbo liq uid will appear to be iu n suite ofef I'ervcrscensc. This ebunge very often takes place twenty-four botirs before tho change iu the weather. 4. The side from which tho wind will blow iu ft squall will also lie indi cated by tho particle oflho substance floating iu tbo liquid, and usauiumg iho khup ol long liutry neetlle. D. iu summer time, tbo weather ba iog warm aud dry, tbo crystslitutioo w.'.x l)avo a U'Udeupy to reinuin lower iu Ibo tube, aud the liquid will be more trauspuront. 1 ho amount of q! prystaliaed parti clcs that will be scon- floating in the liquid will bo a sure sign or indicution of line or bud weather, and will der pond entirely upon tho suddaopss of tbo cliaugo in tbo weather which is to lake place, acting iu the most cocrgct io way on tbp compoiiiou above d tcribod.

Tho Jews in America, iu Chins, in K up land, iu Kassiu, or Franco, believe to day just as the Jews iu Jerusalem be liercd long years since, anil look just us they looked. Jews seldom uiairy other than a Jewish church. They cling to the nutinnuliiy as to something sacred. Aud it is sacred in their sight, (loco tbey thought themselves the Lord s chosen people ; nnd ihey think so still.
