'Fat Spartans. The ancient Spartans paid as much at tention to the rearing of man as the catH tie-breeders m modern England do to the breeding of cattle. They took charge of the firmness and looseness of men's flesh, and regulated the degree of 'fatness to which it was lawful, in a free state, for any citizen to extend his body. Those who dared to grow too soft or too fat for military exercise and the service of iSparta were soundly whipped. In one particular instance, that of Nauclis, tho son of Polybius, the offender was brought before the Ephori and a meeting of the whole people of Sparta, at which his un lawful fatness was publicly exposed, and he was threatened with perpetual bansih ment if be did not bring his body within the regular Spartan compass, and give up his culpable mode of living, which was declared to be more worthy of an Ionian than of a son of Lacedrcmon.

He embraced the opportunity, the Journ al says, to tell tho following anecdote of av celebrated clergyman in Albany : no said that the doctor told his par ishioners he should reserve the best efforts of his mind for rainy days and the worse the weather the better should be his sermons and he kept his word. The consequence naturally was, that his church was never so well filled as in wet weather, and the harder the rain poured down, the more the people flocked in, un til it finally became his practice to pray the Lord to bless his flock with rainy Sundays.

He was quick to observe merit, and 1 ' prompt, 10 rcwara u, ana tins was wnac raade bi3 followers so devoted to him i 1 l.i. 1 . and so anxious to distinguish themselves j by prowess in battle, and strict soldierly , conduct in the emperor's service. j Colonel Eugene Merville was an at-, tache of Napoleon's staff. He was a ( soldier, in the true sense of tho word . devoted to his nrofession. and brave as a W Tbmml, vnrv hdeom. nnd of . . t., i fine bearing, ho was of humble birth-a mere child in the camp, and had follow- ed the drum and bugle from boyhood. ! Every step in the line of promotion had been won by the stroke of his sabre, and his promotion from major of cavalry was for a gallant deed which transpired on the battle field beneath the emperor's own eye. Murat, that prince of cavalry offi cers, loved him like a brother, and taught him all that his own good taste and nat ural instiuct had not led him to acquire before. It was the carnival season in Paris,and Merville found himself at the masked ball in the French Opera House. Better a dapted in his taste to the field than the boudoir he flirts but little with the gay figures that cover the floor, and joins but seldom in the giddy waltz. But at last, while standing thoughtfully, and regard ing the assembled throng with a vacant eye, his attention was Buddenly arrested by the appearance of a person in a white satin domino the universal elegance of whose figure, manner and bearing con vinced all that her face and mind must be equal to her person in grace and love liness. Though in so mixed an assembly, still there was a dignity and reserve in the manner of the white domino that rather repulsed the idea of a familiar address, and it was some time before the young soldier found courage to speak to her. Some alarm being given, there was a violent rush of the throng towards the door, where, unless assisted, the lady would have materially suffered. Eugene Merville offers his arm, and with, his broad shoulders and stout frame wards off the danger. It was a delightful mo ment; the lady spoke purest French, was witty, fanciful and captivating. 'Ah! lady, pray raise the mask, and re veal to me the charms of features that must accompany so sweet a voice and so graceful a form as you possess. 'You would, perhaps, be disappointed.' 'No, I am sure not.' 'Are you so very confident?' 'Yes. I feel that you are beautiful. It cannot be otherwise.' 'Don't be too sure of that,' said the domino.

Take this half ring,' she continued, 'and when I supply the broken portion I will be yours.' He kissed the little emblem, sworo a gain and again to be faithful, and pres sing her hand to his lips bade her adieu. He was conducted away as mysteriously as he had been brought thither, nor could he by any possible means discover where ho had been; his companion rejecting all bribes, and even refusing to answer the simplest questions. Months rolled on. Col. Merville is true to his vow, and happy at the antici pation of love. Suddenly he was ordered to an embassy to Vienna, the gayest of all European capitals,-about the time that Napoleon is planning to marry the Arch Duchess Maria Louisa. The young col onel is handsome, manly, and already distinguished in arms, and becomes at once a great favorite at court, every ef fort being made by the women to capti vate him, but in vain; he is constant and true to his vow. - But his heart was not made of stone; the very fact that he had entertained such tender feelings for the white domino, had d&ibtless made him more susceptible than before. At last he met the young baroness Caroline Von Waldroff, and in spite of s ws, sno captivates mm, anu ne se- cretly curses tne engagement ne so mmu made at Paris. She seems to wonder and yet the distance that he maintains!- i The truth was that his sense of honor was , x. 4 Al . . . so creai, tuut-, iuuuu u icm uu xuanj loved the young baroness, and even that she returned his affection, still he nad civen his word and it was sacred.

'Several years since, while at work in the chemical laboratory, a man brought us a vial holdidg a half oz., and bearing the following or a similar label: "Tooth-wash warranted to remove all dark color, &c.,&c, from the teeh immedi ately, and give them a pearly whiteness.. It preserves the teeth from decay, renders tho breath sweet, prevents tartar from j forming upon them, and being carried in- to the stomach, thus improves the gener- al health of the system. A single vial will last for years. Price only 25 cents, We examined this valuable affair, and found it to consist only of water with 1 a little common muraitic acid, (hydro- cholic acid.) Its only action upon the ' teeth was to dissolve off a portion of their surface, which of course removed the dark coating, The continued use of this wash ; would soon entirely eat away the teeth and , destroy them. We estimated the co3t of j a barrel-full of this wash to be about 75 cents, and this would fill about 7,500 of j the vials at a cost of about one cent for 100 vials full. The cost of the vials, in- j eluding the labels and filling, was about ' one and a quarter cents each. This 'Toolh -washing pedlar" offered us a shin- ing gold eagle to tell him how to make it, ! (which of course we declined doing) 'for,' said he, "I pay 15 a hundred for those vials, and I sell thousands of them, and am now going to the N. Y. State Fair, and can sell them like hot cakes to the green cpuntry chaps. Last yearl made over S100. selling this same wash at one Fair, and I want to make it myself." We told him how injurious it was to the lopt.Ti nnrl Tip Tpft. lid. We heard no more of him, till a few 7 days since we met him at one of our South- ern State Fairs, driving a brisk business. He had a boy on a stool before him, and was performing his dental operations (anti-dental rather) upon a dark colored v . , , . x i set of teeth, and showing to a wondering crowd '-this black tooth by the side of that white one, made so by his incom parable tooth-wash." A dozen or more of the ambitions crowd immediately walk ed up and paid their quarters, and car ried home their prize. We stepped up to the pedlar, and reminded him of our for mer remonstrances; but he replied, "It pays too well to give up the business, I make 81,500 a year clear, and pay $50 a year" to the State for the privilege of selling. A hundred others are selling it ' over the country. I got it for $10 a hun dred after telling tfie manufacturer how cheaply you said it could be made." Wo will only say in regard to tooth washes and tooth powders generally, that, whether dry or liquid, they usually cou tain some acid which destroys the teeth It is safer to avoid them all.

'Jo, when you grow up, do you mean to be lawyer, or keep a confectionary store.?' I havcn't made up my mind, Tom: but ma wants me to be a minister.' 'Oh, don't be a minister, Jo, for you can't go to the circus then.' 'I know that, Tom, but a minister, ma says, is the best profession. Y.ou know how Mrs. Lovcgrove adores the Rev. Mr. Prettyface, and wouldn't you like" to be adored, Tom?' 'Perhaps I should, but then you can't drive fast horses.' 'Oh, yes, you can; ministers drive fast horses now-a-days; and besides that Tom, when they have a billious attack, the worshipers send them on a foreign tour; then they get remembered in wills, and often have nice presents, and ma says it wont be long before every minister has his country scat, and a town house, and a collegian to write his sermons. Won't that be high?' Sulphnrous. A verdant Irish girl, just arrived, was sent to the Intelligence Office by the Corn- niissioners of Emigration, to find a place at service. She was sent to a Restaurant where 'stout help' was wanted, and while in conversation with the proprietor, he took occasion to light a cigar by igniting a locofoco match on the sole of his boot, As soon as the girl saw this, she ran away half frightened to death, and when she reached the intelligence office she was al- most breathless. 'Why, what's the matter with, you?' said the proprietor, seeing her rush into his office in such confusion. 'Och! sure, sir' but ye sint me to the ould divil himself, in human form.' 'What do you mean? Has he dared to insult a 'help' from my office?' 'Yis, sir,' 'he's the divil.' 'What did ho do to you? tell me, and I will fix.him for it,' said he, quite exas- perated. 'Why, sir, while I was talking to him about wages, he turned up the bottom of his fut, and wid a splinter in his fingers, sir, he jist guv one strike, and the fire flew out of his fut, and burned the stick, and he lighted his scgar wid it, right a- fore me own face.

This is the name of a new pill just got up by Dr. Francis, for the purpose of getting up an attach ment between the sexes. It is composed of signs and mooulight, and is taken thro' a flute. A practical illustration of a man car rying tho punishment of his sins along with him is related of a fellow in Cincin nati, who lafely ran away with two mar ried womon, and received a letter of thanks from their husbands. t A gentleman, speaking of Cincinnatti, says it3 most appropriate name would bo Haw-burg of America.

Making money by speculation", without regard to the established laws of trade is a matter that can bo compared to noth ing so well, as to the dealing in lottery tickets, or some other species of gambling where no sagacity is required. ' There may be one chance in one thousand, or one. in ten thousand, for succcs?, but t'he odds stands too fearfully against one to encourage the practice. The qualifica tions here made will bo easily perceived. There are apparent speculations which are baswl upon the closest calculations of demand and supply. Let a merchant as certain just how much of any given arti cle there is in the market, and also just how large the demand will be, and he may safely purchase the whole with a certainty of realizing a profit. If one of the earliest adventures to Ualirornia couta have foreseen the population of San Fran cisco, and thereupon purchased the whole tract of land upon which the city now stands, his profits would have been be yond calculation. Such as these must be considered truly legitimate operations. But the folly of rushing blindly into risks which may be managed by skilful impor ters, is too absurcd for anything more than a passing allusion. Sucb was tho tulip mania in Holland. While thia raged, men were known to give their whole possessions, amounting to thousands of florins, for a single favorite bulb. The Mississippi scheme was another, in which a reckless gambler succeeded in fascina ting a whole nation. The South Sea bubble is not forgotten. The hundreds of companies incorporated for all sorts of imaginable purposes have all been de scribed in full, but the ruin and misery by the final explosions have been terrific beyond description. Yet men will sel dom learn wisdom from their own person al experience. The same reckless scenes are enacted every year. The land spec ulations in the State of Maine nearly beg gafd the State. Men left their ware houses, counting-rooms, and store?, and rushed off to townships, village-lots, and mill privileges. So crowded were the mushroom-cities, that barns, sheds, and the privileges to lean against the gate posts, were in requisition for lodging places. This affair did not end in a mere bubble, it ended in the ruin of more than nine-tenths of all who caught the contagion. For many year3 after, the question was invariably asked by the prudent Boston merchants of applicants for credit : "Have you had anything to ! do with the eastern land speculations?" Some fifteen years ago, more or less, there was an effort made to build a city ! at the junction of the Ohio and Missis- ! sippi rivers, which was to be called uai- ro. otreets were graueu, uuuaua auu store lots were laid out for miles up the banks of both rivers.
