! The following ii old?it belonged to the
list generation?bat it nuy be new to
many at present day: Old Parson Mao
ton, of Woroester, used occasionally to be
. absent from bis flock on missionary tours
into distant States. Upon a certain sum
mer Sabbath, having just returned from
one of these excursions, he found his con
gregation quite drowsy, and for the pur
pose of waking them up broke off in the
midst of bis sermon, be began to tell thciu
of what wonderful things he bad seen in
York State. Among other wonders he
: said be had seen the largest mosquitoes it
! had e7er been his fortune to fall io with?
: so large, io fact, that many of then would
weigh a pound!
The good people were, by tfaia .time,
vide awnko.
"Yes," continued the parson; "and,
moreover, they have been kuown to olimb
up a tree, and bark!"
The congregation was sleepy no more on
that day. On the day following, two of
the deacons of the church waited on Parson
Muusoo, and informed him that the mem
bers of his parish were much acandaliied
by the big stories he had told them from
the pulpit.
"What stories?" said the parson, with
innocent surprise.
"Why, sir, you said that you had seen
mosquitoes in York State that weighed a
"I said," returned the parson, explana
torily, "that many of them would weigh a
"Well?but," continued (ho elder dea
con, with a slight choking in his utterance,
"you said they hud been known .to climb
np a tree and bark."
"Certainly," said the parson, with an
assuring nod. "As to their climbing up
on a tree, I have seen them do that here
in Worceiter county, haven't you, dca
"Oh, yes I have seen 'em do that."
"Well, how could they climb a tret
without climbing on the bark?"
The good deacons went their way with
.'omething very like > mosquito humming
in their ears.

fclt'a little embarrassed for fear there were
members ot the family, present, and bo he
' left the beautiful gift on the stoop and
pH?-ed in. 'The movement was perceived
by u graceless brother of the young ladf,
who appropriated the colonge to his own
u?e auil refilled the bottle with hartshorn
from the family jar, and then hung around
to oVierve the result. Io ? little whilo the
young man slipped out on the stoop and,
securing the fplendid gift slipped back in- ?
to the parlor, whero. with a few appropri
ate words, he pressed it upon the blushing j
girl. Like a good and faithful daughter
that she was she at once hurried into the.
presence of her mother, and the old lady
was charmed. They didn't put up scent
stuff like that when she was a girl; it was
kept in a cbiua tea cup and it was hclo to
gether by sample of ail the family shair.?
Hut she wan very much pleased with it.?
She drew out the stopper, laid the beauti
ful petals of her nostrils ever tbeaperturc.
and fetched a pull at the contents that
fairly made them buddle. Then she laid
the bottle down, and picked up a brass
mounted fire shovel instead, and said she,
as soon as she could say anything:
?Where is that stinking brat* And he,
all unconscious of what had happened, was
in front of the mirror adjusting bis oecktic
and smiling at himself. And here she
found biro, and said to him; Oh, you
arc laughing at the trick of an old woman,
are you, you wall-cycd leper." And then
she pasted him one on the ear. And be
being by nature more eloquent with his
bin legs than his tongue, hastened from the
house bowling like mad, and accompanied to
the gate by that brass mounted "hovel. He
says he would give everything on earth if
he could shake off the itnpre-Mon that a

We bsve received from llio accomplish
ed discoverer, Mr. George Smith, of the
? British Museum, (he subjoined moat iuter
| esting (count of the record of the deluge,
which, as we luoouoced ? dij or two igo,
! ho hu lately deciphered from the Assyrian
I monuments:
"The cuueiform inscription which I've
recently found and translated gives a long
snd full ireount of the deluge. It con
tains the version or tradition of thiseveu',
which existed in the Ctrl; Chaldean peri
riod at the city of Krccb (one of the cities
of Nitnrod,) now represented by the ruins
of Warlta In this newly discovered in
scription the account of the deluge is put
as a narrative into the mouth of Xisuthrus
or Noah. He delates the wickedness of the
world, the command to build the ark, its
building, the filling of it, the deluge, the
resting of tbc ark on a mountain, the seu
{ding out of the bird), and nthcr matters.
The narrative bas a closcr resemblance to
the account transmitted by the Greeks from
KerosUH tbe Chaldean historian, than to
the bit lical hiatory, but it does not differ
materially from either. Tbe principal dif
ferences arc as to the duration of the del
uge, the name of the mountain on whiob
tho ark rested, the sending out of the birds,
eto. The cuneiform account is muoh lon
ger and fuller than that of Ucrosus, and
lins several details omitted both by the
Bible and the Chaldean historian. This
inscription opens up many cjuostions of
which ire knew nothing previously, and it
is connected with a number of other de
tails of Cbaldoan history which will bo both
interesting and important This is tho
first time any inscription Has been found
with an account of an event mentioned in
Genesis."? London Ttltgruph.

turalist; Dr. Von WiTlcmoea Suhm, of
Munich, naturalist; John Murray, of Ed

naturalists take charge respectively of the
invertebrata. the vortebrata, and botany.
Professor Thompson assumes the charge
of the general xoological work. A photo
grapher is alio assigned to duty. The
whale expedition is under the immediate
direction of the hvdriigraphio department
of the Admiralty, and the ship is fitted out
with a magnificent collection of scientific
ipparatus. The voyage is expeeted to
take about three aud a half years. It ii
difficult to over-estiiustc the immense ben
efit which science must derive from ao ex
pedition such as tliia. Apart from the re
mits of intense iutcreet which may be ex
pected from the deep-sea work, the princi
pal object of tbe expedition, and which
must go fir to elucidate a subjection which
3ur knowledge is at present of the most
imperfect description, abundant opportu
nity will offer for the accurate investiga
tion of the animal and vegetable life of
many highly interesting and yet imper
fectly known or totally unexplored regions.
Die investigation of the floras of such icl

most instructive results; and it is needless

Another reason of the delicicy of our
women is the far greater stylve affected bjf
all classes io drew, and the wearing of
during early youih. Naturally, if ono
has attained a full and fine physical devel
opment, tight oorsets, heavy skirts, closo
fitting boots and weighty chignons cannot
injure to the same extent as when those
appliances of fashion are placed upon the
soft and yielding muscles of a young and
growing girl, l'he nobis ladies of Eng
land exercise many hours daily in the open
air. The; do not disdain to don heavy
calfskin shoes and colorod petticoats iu
which to perform this duty. This, of
course, would not alone mako them as
healthy ai they arc, were not their consti
tution strengthened by a proper physical
education before they arc eighteen years of
age, but it suffices to retain them in a good
degree of health. Our fair Americans
early iu tho day attire themselves iu a
charming morning costume, with while
skirts, and tben they are averse to soiliug
these by exercisc, and the least dampness
deters them from a promenade. Ameri

ning fro 11 general ruinor that the poor

George Washington's rogard for his per
aoo *ii in consonance with the majesty ol
hid character. Uia reluctance to biro
himself to the sculptor Houdou n well
known. On a certain occasion ono of the
persons alluded to in the annnodoto bolow
ventured to olap hiin familiarly on tho
shoulder, a wager having been laid that
he would not daro do it. Washington*
rebuke waa simply ? glance of tho eye,
but bo intense auu icvere that the faimuar
itv wis oover again attempted. It is out
taowu however, that any human being
memory of arelatiw of Colonel Peyton is
to be trusted. Hor aecount of this remar
kablo iuoidont is as follows:
In tlio heated oanvass which followed
Jefferson's nomination for the Presidency ,
General Washington's personal and inti
mate friend, Light-horse Harry Lee, was
opposed for Cougrcss by Colonel ???
Peyton. So great was the interest felt by
Washington lor Lee, that on election day
he mounted his horse and rodo up from
Mount Vernon to Alexandria for the pur
pose of influencing by his presence as ma
ny votes as possiblo for hie friend. Am
ong the many friends ho encountered was
a plasterer who had been employed at Mt
Vernon. This plasterer wus a small man.
defective, no doubt, iu reverence, and, it
may well be believed, somewhat tho worse
for liquor, early in tho day as it was.?
Having salutod the Pater Petri?, the lit
tie man proceeded to upbraid him for his
known friendship for General Lee?a mun
who, in his opinion (the plasterers,) was
uot only a Federalist, but an aristocrat to
boot; whereas Colonel Peyton wss a Dem
ocrat, a friond of tho people, and especial
ly of the poor laboring classes.
Nettled by tho disparagement of his
personal friend, Washington replied that
(be plasterer's preference was tho result
more of genoral ignoranco on all subjects
than any correct knowledge, either of the
character of the respective csndidatcs or of
the issues involved in tho canvass The
allusion to his want of education was more
than the intoiicatcd little man could stand
To the astonishmhnt of tho witnesses, he
ripped out an oath and said: ' Well, I
dou't csre if I am ignorant; I know my
rights, anyhow. You fought for our lib
erties, and won 'em, and d?m me if I
don't intend to exercise 'cm!" Whereup
on ho delivered ? number of dry blows
upon the ohest of the august chieftuiu ?
The by standers made a rush to tear him
to pieoes, but Washington, placing bi^
band on the small man's shoulder, drew
him close to him, and said: "Ho shall not
be harmed. I have wouoded him in the
teuderest part of his naturo. He is nut to
blame for his ignorance, and it is but nat- j
oral that lie should rceont sn allusion t>
it." So the plaster went scot-fres.
THE EPIDEMIC among houses.
A sudden calamity has fallen upon the
horses of the northern part of tho Ameri
can continent, by which nearly the whole
of them are reudered temporarily useless
The virulenco of the complaint is such
that more tliau half of tho horses of New
York and its suburbs are stricken, and re
quiro rest and treatment. Ilaok-stands
are deserted, travel is impeded, labor ir
suSpcndcd, and an almost Sahbatb-liko
stillness falls upon the ordinarily crowded ,
Bud noisy streets. Fortunately the nature |
of this attack is not so serious ?s it would
Mem to be, and only its singularity gives
ri#c to apprebcusionB which its ohartoter,
does not warrant. Iu other oouutries, es
pecially in Knglaud, its occurrence under
certain atmospheric conditions is looked
upon as a matter of course, and familiarity
although it may not exactly breed eon
tempt, nevertheless prevents cither ostan
Ubiocot or approhonsion. It it neither
directly serious uor necosurily fatal lo any
' subject, unless complications produoe dan
serous scoondary cffoots. It is a catarrhal
! fe.er, which, being causcd by condition!
, ; which aro gonerst, affects at one and tho
ij sauie time the auiuials of a whole district,
tod often of distriuti onmparativelj dist
ant froui each other. It is uot contagious.
It readily yields to proper trcatoieut.??
Ke.it aud careful nursing and palliating
effect an easy euro, The premonitory
symptoms are general liitlcsanou, droop- .
ing head, an excessive secretion of tears,
discharges from the nnso, at first thin and
serous, afterwards thick, like pus; a oougb
which rapidly increases in severity until it
ia ncoompsnied by bleeding front tho nose;
loss of appetite and great weakness, with
cold sweats and fevor The treatment
should be immediate if a rapid recovery |g
desired. Work should bo suspondod at
the first appuaranoe of tho symptom!.?
Warm demulcent driuka', such as flaxseed
toa, should be given. Steaming tho nos
trils and hoad by means of t bag of scald
ed bran suspended beneath the note; warm
and dry bedding and blanketing, and tho
proiuction of a stato of perspiration as soon
ns possiblo after attack, aro necessary.?
The moment healthy perspiration can bo
iuduced, a ourn is commonced. The sta
bles should be disinfected and woll ventil
ated, but' no jurreuls of air should bo per
mitted lo blow upon tho patient. Warm
water, oopiously applied to tho fcot and
logs, which should afterwards be rubbed
quite dry with ooarse woolen cloths, is
useful ns is also similar friction over the
whole body. Medicine should not be ad
ministered unless by a caroful and oompq
tonl Surgeon. The soroooss of the throat
and consequent disinclination to swallow
often cauM! liquid itoedicinos to find their
wav to tho lungs, with fataloffeot. Mild
irritants, sucb as mustard or ammonia,
rubbed on the throat, relieves tho sore
ness, and'tar-watcr for drink is a vsluablo
help. Bran-mashes or soalded oats, with
liltio hay, should be fed. Wiibiuch gen
tle treatment and oafeful nursing, and t
cautious return to work and higher feed,
nothing more serious than a few days'
suspension of tfork is to be dreaded. It
is 'probable. tfiiet horned stook, sheep, ind
pigs may be affeetqd, in which'case treat,
ment is needed similar to that above dqt
cribcd. Vi
owntalk cbanotd upon
an item giving nine reason why people
should dress plainly on Sunday, which an
so sensible that wo hero reproduoe them:
1. It would lessen the burden of many
wbonow find it hard to maintain tbeir
places in sooietv.
2 It would lesson the fcrco of tb?
temptations whioh often lead men to barter
honor and honesty for display.
3. If thero were less strife in dress at
