CiVADAM.
Wo oannot resist the temptatioo of pub
lishing the following laughable occurrence,
although it has a slight tiugo of profanity
in it. It shows (bat theru ia "something
in a name." We doubt not our miuisters
and eburoh-goers, will enjoy it hugely.?
No one can read it without enjoying a
Loarty laugh:
Up in Hoanc ounty, at Spencer, they j
b??o a man named George (Jaudam. Mr.
Qaudam is a church deacon.
At a recent meeting, aftur the sermon
was over, the prcachcr announced that a
collection would be taken up, and said:
Gaudam you pass the plate."
This sounded very much like "cussing"
and created considerable merriment in the1
congregation.
If wo wero that fellow, we would hare
our (iaudam name immediately changcd
to something more reverential.
Stays wero first invented by a brutal
butcher of the thirteenth century as a pun
ishment for bis wife. She waa very loq
uacious; and finding nothing that could
cure her, he put a pair of stays on her iu
order to takeaway her breath, and so
provent, as bo thought, her talking.?
This cruel punishment was inflicted by
other husbands, till at last there was hard-1
ly a wife in all London who wbb not con
demned to wear stays. Tbo punishment
bccame so universal at last that the ladies
in their own defence made a fashion of it,
and so it has continued to tbo present
day.
Tbo English Court of Queen's Bench
was recently engnged in gravely discuss
ing the cffect of a sear upon the forehead
received by an actress in a railway collis-'
ion. The counsol for the railway compa
ny suggested that the matter was entirely j
too sentimental for the consideration of
tbo Court, but Mr. Justice Blackburn said
it was a serious thing for an actress to
have a disfiguring mark upon her fao<\?
Lord Chief-Justice Cockburn dwelt upon
the lady's professional career, without
dwelling particularly upon the tear upon
hor face. Tbo Court supported tbo ver
dict, which gave the lady ?8,000 dama
ges.

An American tourist has been distin
guishing himself iu Ireland. Mr. Fitz
benry, Boston, has run away with Miss
Agnes Barry, only daughter of Newton
Barry, lato M. P. of tbo county of Wex
ford, Ireland. Miss Barry, financially
considered, is a prize of the first-class, as
as sfao is possessed of ?300,000 which she
inherited from one of thoso dear old uncles
of whom one reads in novels. The father,
of courso, refused to consent; but tbo lov
ers rao away to Killarney and wero made
ono. Tapa has now, of course rejected,
forgiven the happy pair, and all, we may
now hope, will go as merry as a marriage,
&o , 4o.
An ingenious drug store clerk of Clovo
land, who is a chemist in disguiso, has dis
covered a new Buicide article that not only
makes him famous, but it will save fuuer
al expenses, and entirely dispenses with
Coroner's and their juries and robes, sen
sational newspaper reporters of the press
urc of describing corpse. Tbo article is a
combination of powerful chemicals, and
when iubalcd, changes the entire body, j
clothes and all, into gases in an instant,;
leaving no traccs of the victim, not even '
the life insurance policy being left. Sev
eral person are missing and it is feared
that the clerk has been experimenting on
them.

Historical records shows that up to 1,
632 there were no horses in New Kngland;
and their introduction into New Nether-j
land?now New York?occurred during
tbo administration of Gov. Von. Twiller,
in 1033-38. Trumbull's "History of
Connecticut" mentions the horse as accom
panying emigrants from Massachusetts to
that State, Oct. 15, 1636. The first
horse seen in Canada was brought to that
country from France, in a ship which ar.!
rived at Tadoussac, June 20, 1617.
It is estimated that there are now in
tbis country 8,000,000 burses, valued at!
between two and thre thousand millions of
dollars?a sum ample to pay the national
debt.

At a recent very successful seance cf
spiritualists in Cincinnati, a man buret in'
to tears when the medium described very
accurately a tall, blac-eycJ spirit standby
by him with light side whiskers, and his!
hair parted in the middle. "Do you know
him?" inquirod a man at hissidoin a sym
pathetic whisper. "Know him, I guess I'
do," replied the unhappy man, wiping hi.i
eyes. "He was engaged to iny wife. II
ho hadn't died ho would liavo been her
husband instead of me. 0 George,
George," he murmured, iu a voicc choked
with emotion, "why did you peg out!"

are cvideuccs in multiplied forme to prove
that the climate in those inhospitable

abundniit. These grew luiuriantly where
it is almost impossible to sustain Pither
plants or animals with all the appliances
of art, and from their structure are parti

Fred. Douglass and Ling a ton are set
down iu the papers as not loving each otb.
or overmuch. This Langston is an unre
I liable, nearly-whito fellow, with considcra
! blc ability at phrase making and not much
seuso. Ho is evVr lastingly in search of
I office, and Douglass, who is a well-ordered
man, with a round head, is reported to
havo gone to President Orantand snubbed
Langston's aspirations. Langstou's notion
was that tho colored race should havo some
Cabinet position, beoause it had voted fur
Grant, and ho had constructed himself in
to the representative of the colored raoo as
aforesaid. Douglass had senso enough to
know that color is a pretty uicao qualifica
tion, except for matrimony, and that Laug
ston would make a donkey of himself in
whatever position he could get. Fred.
Douglass comes from the Eastern Shore of
Maryland, and has a good njslery nature
about him. He opens up well.?G't\

The Norfolk, Va., Jcurmil states that
the shipments of oysters from that port to
Europe aggregate from 3,000 to 4,000 bar
rels monthly, and that the trade is constant
ly increasing. The Journal says: "Near
ly all the oysters arrive there in good con
dition, and the Liverpool dealer is so much
pleased with tho success of his venture, that
ho has written to double the quanity sent
him, and expresses the opinion that he will
bo able to dispose of a much larger quani
ty as the season advances. Somo of tho
oysters sent arc small; intonded for roplan
tiug in English waters; others are large and
luscious, ready for tho table of the epicure
and fit to tempt the palate of an Epicurus.
This foreign oyster trade is destiued to
form an important feature in our com
merce."
A Paris Street Scene?"Dear lady,''
