AVe have another new sensation, Quite a funny demonstration, To l>e in fashion some insist, You must place yourself all of h twist. To teach the different ways its done, The task I'll undertake for fun, So please attention to inc lend, And learn to do the "Grecian Bend." CHORUS—Throw up the chin and out the chest. Assume the form of the letter S, Like a kangaroo your arms extend, And then you'll have the Grecian Bend. T'nto your notice I will firing, The various ways to do this thing, To explain to you I do intend, The different styles of Grecian Bend. For instance, when you see a dog Stand up and imitate a frog. Although he's dumb you may depend, He's trying on the Grecian Bend. CHORUS. . A man yon meet while in the street, His equilib he cannot keep, lie'll tali in the gutter and pretend, He's got the Bourbon Gercian Bend. Or, if you meet a shape absurd, With back hum red up like Rich, the third, You will tind by looking sharp, my friend, Another kind of Gercian Bend. CHORUS. There's nothing in the shape so hateful. That is stylish much less tasteful, Oh, may the fashion not extend, But be short lived, this Grecian Bend. Though if you still require of me, Instructions in deformity, I'll teach you right you may depend, The way to do the Gercian Bend* CHORUS, THE EXQUISITE.

So foreign like and grand- Is Count Alonzo Frederick Augustus Ferdinand. He smells of musk and bergainot, And puts on "killing airs." At every well dre-s'd belle he meets He impudently stares; He says "dem me"' to everything, And tries to ape Beau Nash, He wears a long "goatee" and sports A love of a mustache. And silly girls, to trap him. oft Will take a deal of pains, Prtlerring an exquisite to A man of real brains; Ambitious lor a title, they Cannot the chanee forego, Of l>eing lady -Thingumbob," Or Countess "So and So." Discarding men ol real worth, And merit, for a shape, Got up in style, but very like A monkey or an ape, They often when it is too late, Discover to their shame, The folly of a great mistake In worshipping a name. LATEST OUTRAGE UPON THE FASH ION. A newly inducted policeman in New Or leans recently had a singular adventure | with a fashionable dressed huly whom he met coming out of a dry goods store. He had heard of shoplifters who carried oil the most costly silks in a sack disposed about their person. He was ambitious of distinction, and here was a chance for the coveted fame. The l;uly was evidently car rying a heavy load. —$he must must be a shoplifter. There could be no doubt of it— he would arrest h r. "You are my prisoner." he said, laying his hand on her shoulder. "What do you mean ?" demanded the in sulted lady. "What's that yov've got on your back — stolen goods ?" "Heaven ! I never was so insulted. No sir, it's not stolen goods." "I mean no ott'eiise, uiaduin, but my du ty compels me to examine it.,' "Sir —vidian-—that's my —my Grecian bond!" &apA young minister went into the country to preach, and observed during his discourse a poor woman who seemed to be much affected. After the service he resolv ed to pay her a visit, and see what were the impressions on her mind. "Well," said the woman, "I'll tell you. About six years ago me and husband removed to this place and all the property we had was a donkey. Husband he died, and then poor donkey was left alone. At hist donkey, he died ; and to tell you the truth, your voice put put mc so much in mind of that deur crit ter, that I could t help taking on about it." dandy, strutting about a tavern, took up a piar of green spectacles which lay 011 the table, put them ou bis nose, and turning to the looking glass, said : "Landlord, how do these become mc ? Don't yon think they improve my looks ?" "I think they do," replied the landlord, "they hide a part of your face." Iu a recent case in Indiana a justice com placently remarked, iu summing up the testimony: "Gentlemen of the Jury, in this case the counsel on both sides are unintelligible, the witnesses on both sides are incredible, and the plaintiff and defendant are both such lag! characters, that to me it is indifferent which way you give your verdict." " To Speak his Thoughts is Every Freeman's Right. " "BEVIS." A TALE OF A DOG. The Lyons dilligence was just going to start from Geneva. I climbed on the roof, and chose my place next the driver ; there was still a vacant seat, and the porter called "Monsieur Hermann !" A lull young man with a German style of countenance advanced, Holding in bis arms a large black Greyhound, which lie vainly endeavored to place on the roof. "Monsieur," said he. addressing me, "will yon have the kindness to take my dog V" Bending over, I took hold of the animal, and placed him on the straw at my feet. T observed that he wore a handsome silver collar, on which the following word , were ta.-tefully engraved : "lViis. 1 belong to Sir Arthur Burnley, given him by Miss Clara." His owner was,therefore an Englishman, yet my fellow traveler, who had now taken his place by mv side, was evidently either a Swiss or a German, and his name was Her mann. Trifling as was the mystery, it ex cited my curiosity, and after two or three hours' pleasant conversation had establish ed a sort of intimacy between us, I ventur ed to ask my companion for an explana tion. "It does not surprise me," lie answered, "that this collar should puzzle you ; and I have great pleasure in telling you the story of its wearer. Deris belongs to me, lmt it is not many years since ho owned another master whose name is on Itis collar. You will see why he still wears it. Here, Bevis! speak to this gentleman." The dog raised his ltead, opened his bright eyes, and laying back his long ears, uttered a sound which might well pass for a saint ion. Mr. Hermann placed the animal's head on his knees and began to unfasten the col lar. Instantly Bevis drew back his head with a violent jerk, and darted toward the lug gage on the hind port of the roof There, growling fiercely, he lay down, while liis muscles were stiffened, and his eyes glowed with fury. "You see. monsieur, how determined he is to guard his collar. I should not like to be the mail who would try to rob him of it. Here, Bevis," said he, in a soft, caressing tone. "I won't touch it again, poor fol low. Come and make friends The greyhound hesitated, still growling. At length he returned slowly towards his master, and began to lick his hands. His muscles gradually relaxed, and he trembled like it leaf. "There, boy, there," said Mr. Hermann, caressing him. "We won't do it again.— Lie dowu now, and be quiet." The dog nestled between his master's feet and went to sleep. My fellow traveler then turning towards me, began : "I am a native of Buabia, but 1 live in a little village of the fcjherlaml, at the foot of the Grimsel. My father keeps an inn for the reception of travelers going to St. Gothard. About two years since there ar rived at our house one evening a young Englishman, with a pale, sad countenance. He traveled on foot, and was followed by a large Greyhound, this Bevis, whom you see. He declined taking any refreshments, and asked to be shown to his sleeping room. We gave him one over the common hall, where we were all seated, around the fire.— Presently we heard him pacing rapidly up ami down, from time to time uttering bro ken words, addressed no doubt to liis dog, for the HI An al moaned occasionally, as if replying to, and sympathizing with liis master. "At length wo heard the Englishman stop, and apparently strike the dog a blow, for the poor beast gavo a loud howl of agouv, and seemed as if he ran to take ref uge under the bed. Then his master groaned aloud, boon afterwards he lay down, and all was quiet for the night.— Early next morning he Came down, looking still more pale than on the previous evening, and baring paid for his lodging, he took his knapsack and resumed his journey, fol lowed by the Greyhound, who had oaten nothing since their arrival, and whose mas ter seemed to take no further notice of him than to frown when the creature ventured to caress him. "About noon I happened to lie standing at the door, looking toward the direction which the Englishman had taken, when I heard howls of distress, proceeding front a wounded dog that was dragging himself to ward me. "I ran to him. and recognized the Eng lishman's Greyhound. His head was torn, evidently by a bullet, and one of his paws broken. I raised him iu my nnns and car ried him into the house. When I crossed the threshold he made evident efforts to es cape, so I placed him on the ground. Then in sjiite of the torture he was suffering, which caused him to stagger even- mo ment, he scratched at the door of the room where his master had slept, moaning at the same time so piteously that I could scarce ly help weeping myself. I opened the door, and with a great effort he got into the room, looked about, and not finding whom he sought, he fell down motionless. "I called my father, and perceiving that the dog was not dead, we gave him all pos ! sible assistance, taking indeed, as much I care of him as though he had been a child, 1 so ntucli did we feel for him. In two months he was cured, and showed us much affec tion. We found it, however, impossible to take off his collar, even for the purpose of binding up his wounds. As soon as he was able to walk, he would often go toward the mountain, and be absent for hours.— The second time this occured, we followed him. He proceeded as far as a part of the road where a narrow defile borders a preci pice. There he continued for a long time smelling and scratching about. We con jectured that the Englishman might have been attacked by robbers on this spot, and his dog wounded in defending him. How ever, no event of this kind had occurred in the country, and after the strictest search, no corpse was discovered. Recollecting, therefore, the manner in which the traveler had treated his dog, I came to the conelu sion that he had tried to kill the faithful creature. But wherefore ? This was a mys terv which I could not solve. "Bevis remained with us, testifying the utmost gratitude for our kindness. His intelligence and gQpd humor attracted the attention of strangers who frequented our inn, while the inscription on his collar and the tale we had to tell of him failed not to excite their curiosity. One morning in autumn I had been out to take a walk, ac companied by Bevis. When I returned, I found seated by the fire, in the common hall, a newly arrived passenger, who look ed around as I entered. As soon as he per ceived Bevis, he started and called him.— The dog immediately darted toward him with frantic demonstrations of joy. He ran around him smelling his clothes, and uttered the sort of salutation with which he honored you just now, and finally placing his fore-paws on the traveler's knee, began to lick his face. " 'Where is your master, Bevis ? Where is Sir Arthur ?' " said the stranger, in English. "The noble dog howled piteously. and lay down at the traveler's feet. Then the latter begged us to explain his presence. I did so ; and as he listened, I saw a tear fall on the beautiful laud of the Greyhound, who he leant over to caress. " -Monsieur,' said he, addressing me, 'from what you tell me, I venture to hope that Sir Arthur still lives. We have been friends from childhood. About three years since he married a rich heiress, and this dog was presented to him by her. Bevis was highly cherished for his fidelity, a quality which unhappily was not possessed by his mistress, fcjhe left her fond and loving hus band. and eloped with another man. Sir Arthur sued for a divorce and obtained it ; then, having arranged his affairs in England he set out for the Continent, followed only by his dog. His friends new not whither he went. Boubtless, the presence of Bevis, evermore recalling the memory of her who had so cruelly wronged hint must have torn his heart, and at length impelledhim to de stroy th'e faithful creature. But the shot not having been mortal the dog I imagine, w hen he recovered consciousness, was led by instinct to seek the house where his master last slept. Now, monsieur, he is yours, and I heartily thank you for the kindness vou have shown him." "About ten o'clock, the stranger retired to his room, after having caressed Bevis, who escorted ltim to his door, and then re turned to his accustomed place before the fire. My parents and the servants had re tired to rest, and I prepared to follow their example—my bed being placed at one end of the common hall. While I was undress ing, I heard a storm rising in the moun tains. Just then there came a knocking at the door, and Boris began to growl. 1 asked who was there ? A voice replied.—• "Two travelers, who want a night's lodging. I opened a small chink of the door to look out, and perceived two ragged men, each leaning on a large club. I did not like their looks ; and knowing that several rob- Iteries had been committed in the neighbor hood, I refused tliem admission, telling them, in the next village they would readi ly find shelter. They approached the door as though they meant to force their way in ; but Bevis made his voice heard in so formidable a manner that they judged it prudent to retire. I bolted the door, and went to led. Bevis, according to his cus tom, lay down near the threshold, but neither of us felt inclined to sleep. "A quarter of an hour passed, when sud denly above the wailing of the wind, came the loud, shrill cry of a human being in distress. "Bevis mshed against the door with a fearful howl ; at the same moment came the report of a gun, followed by another cry. Two minutes afterward I was on the road, armed with a carbine and holding a dark lantern ; my father and the stranger armed, and accompanied, me. As for Bev is, he had darted out the house and disap peared. "We approached the defile which I men tioned before, at the moment when a flash of lightning illumed the scene. A hundred yards in advance we saw Bevis grasping a man by the throat. We hurried on, bnt the dog hail completed liis work ere we reached him : for two men, whom I recog nized as those who had sought mlmittance at our inn, lay dead, strangled by his pow- erful jaws. Further on, we discovered an other man, whose bloody wounds the no ble dog was licking. The stranger ap proached him, and gave a convulsive cry : It was Sir Arthur—the master of Be via. Here M. Dermau paused ; the recollec tion seemed to overcome him ; and be stopped to caress the sleeping greyhound ; in order to hide his emotion. .After awhile he finished his recital in a few words. "Sir Arthur was mortally wounded, but he lived long enough to recognize his dog and to confess that in a moment of despera tion, he had tried to kill the faithful crea ture who now avenged his death, by slay ing the robbers who attacked him. He ap pointed the stranger his executor, and set tled a large pension on Bevis, to revert to the family of the inn-keeper, wishing thus to testify his repentant love toward his dog, and his gratitude to those who had succor ed him. The grief of Bevis was excessive ; he watched by his master's couch, covering his dead body "with caresses, and for a long time lay stretched on his grave, refusing to take nourishment ; and was not until after the lapse of many months that the affection of his jtew master seemed to console him for the death of Sir Arthur." As my fellow-traveler finished the recital, the diligence stopped to chance horses at the little town of Mantua. Here M. Her mann's journey ended, and having taken down his luggage, he asked me to assist the descent of his dog. I shook hands with him cordially, and then called Bevis, who seeing me on such good terms with, his master, placed his large paws ou my breast and uttered a low friendly bark. —Short- ly afterward they both disappeared from my sight-, but not from my memory, as this little narrative has proved. EXPRESSION IN THE EYEBROWS. The eyebrows are a part of the face com paratively but little noticed, though in dis closing the real sentiments of the mind scarcely any other features of the face can come into competition. In vain the most prudent female imposes silence oh her tongue; in vain she tries to compose her face and eyes ; a single movement of the eyebrows instantly discloses what is passing in her soul, Placed upon the skin, and at tached to muscles which move them in ev ery direction, the eyebrows are obedient, in consequence of their extreme nobility, to the slightest internal impulses. Their majesty, pride, vanity, severity, kindness, the dull and gfctomy passions, and the pas sions soft and gay, are alternately depicted. "The eyebrows alone," said Lavuter, the prince of physiognomists, "often give the positive expression of the character." ' 'Part of the soul," says Pliny the elder, "resides in the eyebrows, which move at the com mand of the will." Le Brun. in liis trea tise on the passions, says "that the eye brows are the least equivocal interpreters of th heart and of the affections of the soul. A WARNING TO YOCNG MEN.— Charles Lamb tells us his experience as a warning to young men in the following language : "The waters have gone over me, But out of the black depths, could I be heard, I would cry out to all those who have set a foot in the perilous flood. Could the youth to whom the flavor of the first wine is delicious as the opening scenes of life or entertaining as some newly discovered par adise,, look into my dissolution and be made to feel what a dreary thing when he can feel himself going down a precipice with open evw and passive will to his de struction, and ltave no have no human power to stop it, and feel it all the way emanating from himself ; to see the good ness emptied out of him, and yet not lie able to forget a time when it was otherwise; Itear the piteous spectacle of his own ruin ; could see my fevered eye, fevered with last night's drinking and feverishly looking to night's repeating folly; could he feel the body of the death out of which I ery hour ly to be delivered ;it were enough to make desert the sparkling beverage to the earth, in all the pride of its mantling temptation. THE RED SEA. The Red Sea is said to be the hottest place in the world. The atmosphere for about sixty miles in that sea is steamy and sticky. Everything in the shape of iron or steel about a ship takes on a coat of rust. Buring the summer months no one travels on the Red Sea unless compelled by busi ness or military orders to do s. In the win ter and spring the passage is delightful. Yet navigation in that body of water is al ways attended with many dangers. The Red Sea is long and narrow, with sunken rocks and projecting reefs ; and counter winds prevail which produce dangerous currents. There are three light-houses in the sea, which must be kept by salamander like men, since the thermometer runs up to one hundred and twenty degrees in July, and approaches ninety in early spring. A poor Scotchman put a crown piece into "the piate" in an Edinburgh church, on a late Sunday morning, by mistake, instead of a penny and asked to have it back, but was refused. In once, in forever. "Aweel, aweel," granted he, " Fll get credit for it in heaven." "Na, na," said the doorkeeper, " ye'll get credit only for the penny ye meant to gi.' TERMS, $2.00 Per. ANNUM, in Advance. 10. 23. A REMARKABLE STORY. A WIDOW MARRIED TO HER OWN BBOTHBB, WHOM SHE HAD NEVER SEEN IN HIS YOUTH. [From the Detroit (Mich.) Free Preu. Nov. 34.] There passed through this city yesterday, en route to Chicago, a lady whose history is one of the most remarkable ever brought to public notice. For reasons which all will see the propriety of, we withhold her name, merely relating to the facts as they were communicated to our reporter by one who had heard the "strange true story" from her own lips. In 1838 her parents emigra ted to this country from England, leaving * behind them an only son some ten years of age. who had engaged as a cabin-boy on a merchant vessel in the East India trade— they landed in New York, where, a few months later, the subject of this sketch was born. While she was yet a helpless infant, both her parents died, and she was Bent to the Foundling Home, where she remained some time, when she was finally adopted by a lady and gentleman who then resided in Elniira, N, Y. Of course she knew no thing of her sailor brother, and she grew up in belief that she was really the cliild of her foster parents. At the age of eighteen she married an industrious young mechanic, and set out for the West. After traveling in various States, the finally settled in Mis souri. where they continued prosperous and happy until the storm of war burst upon the country. Then her husband, in com mon with*the thousands of his countrymen, enlisted in the service of the rebellion, and was assigned to General Price's army. He served faithfully during the first eighteen months of the war, but was finally killed in one <>f the South-western engagements. From the breaking out of tlie war, the la dy of whom we write had lost all trace of her foster parents, owing to the distracted condition of that part of the country in which she resided, and after her husband's deatli she removed to St. Louis, where she sought to maintain herself by sewing. In bSO3, she again married, and her husband embarked in business in St Louis. This last marriage was a thoroughly happy one, and in the course of time two children were boru unto them. The husband gradually extended his business operations, so that much of his time was necessarily spent in travelling about the country and during one of his business tours he visited Cljjca go, where he became acquainted with a La dy and gentleman who, by a fortunate chain of circumstances, he ascertained were the long lost foster parents of his wife. De lighted at the discovery he had made, no doubt, with anticipations of the joyful sur prise he should give his wife, the husband at ouce concluded his business with the in tention of returning to St. Louis, and bringing her to Chicago for the purpose of reuniting her with her friends, without hav ing first prepared either party for such an event. On the night of his contemplated departure for home,, while conversing with Mr. and Mrs. — ; . it happened that he was led into a recital of his adventures about the world, and liefore his narrative was finished, his listeners knew that their adopted daughter had married her own brother, who, before she was born, had sailed for East India. Horrified beyound expression, the wretched man fled from the house, and from that hour no tidings of him have ever reached his friends. This was in March last, and a few weeks later the wretched sister-wife was rendered com paratively poor by the destruction of a largo portion of the property left in her hands, by fire. Although written to by her stricken friends, their letters never reached her, and a few weeks since she started for Elmira, her early home. Upon her arrival hero she learned the address of her foster parents, with whom she at once communicated, giving them full details of her experience since she first bade them farewell, upon setting out for her western home. Their answer to her letter contain ed a statement of the terrible discovery of the identity of her husband and brother, together with an affectionate invitation to come to them with her children and share their home.
