Wf ©ur ©iio. The Japanese Mint. ' AH work of money making in tbc Mint of Japan—which issues a coinage of $70, 000 a day—is done by hand. The cut ting, the punching, the milling, the stamping, are all by process of the sim * plwst manual labor. Few foreigners have ever been allowed to enter the Mint. An English diplomat who had this privilege writes one of its curious regulations : While every operation is performed in this primitive manner, perfect order pre dials in llio establishment ; every man goes through his portion of the work in silence and with the regularity of clock work, and many evince considerable skill. There arc about three hundred hands em ployed in the huiMiitg. When the men enter in the morning they are made to divest themselves of their own clothes, « and put on others belonging to the Mint. ■ A* the end of the day's work a gong sounds ' When'the somewhat curious spectacle is presented of three hundred men spring ing from the ground on which they had been seated, throwing off thei ■ clothes, ■ and rushing, a naked throng, to one end of t yard. Here they pass through the following ordeal: Their baek hair is pul led down aud examined; they wash their hands and hold them up to view ; they drink water and then halloa; and lastly, they run to the other end. of the yard, clesuiug two or three hurdles on their way .'""•Atlr wTiich-perfernwnbe they are allowed to put on their own clothes and depart. a Blarney. About four miles northwest of the city ..«V Cork, in Ireland, is the smell village • of Blarney, celebrated for the beauty of its environs, and still more for the remains of mn ancient castle, in which is a won - druus stone, thought to possess the power , of imparting to any who kisses it a Huent persuasive, and not over-honest tongue. The exact position of tho stone iu the ruins .is a matter of dispute. Home say that it is lying loose on the ground ; others . allege that ii is ut the summit of the large square tower which was originally the don jon Or keep of the eastfe; while there arc yet others who maintain that it is inserted in tho wall at such a height that lie who would kiss it must consent to be suspen ded by his heels from tho top. When or tj bow it first got its singulur reputation is not kqown ; but the superstition concern ing it is firmly fixed in the minds of the , Irish peasantry, hundreds of whom resort . to tho castle every year for the purpose of kissing a stone endue 1 with a property marvellous. It is said that, iu the early part of the seventeenth century, the lord of Castle Blarney, having been taken pris oner by the English, made repeated prom r uns that he would surrender the fortress ; but whenever the fulfilment of his pledge • sat demanded, ho invented some smooth and plausible excuse for delay ; and thus the term blarney became a by-word, and wot used to denote a soft, insinuating, and deceitful manner of speech. SO Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, tbc lead ing spirit in the "Woman's Rights" move ment, and editrees of the "Revolution," is thus sketched : Five sons and two daugh ters sit around her table, all as proud of fheir mother as if she were Queen of Fairy 1 am id, and they her pages in waiting. Drinking not seldom at tho fountain of borrow, she has found in ifs bitter waters strength for her soul. The cause of wo man's elevation is with her not merely a passion, but a religion. She would wil lingly give her body to he burned for the sake or seeing her sex enfranchised. Over the restless earnestness of her inner life Mature has kindly drawn a countenance of fcunnjf smiles, a perpetual good humor and an irresistible flow of spirits, so that as she faces the world she is one of the most fascinating, exhaust less and peren nial of companions ; end uh she turns away from it and faces (iud alone, site offers to very sorrows, disap ' poihtmeutrt And hopes deferred, have long ago wrought within to* a solemu, cheerful and immortal peace. r " -9 "Here lies a man of good repute, who wore n number 1C boot; 'tis not recorded bow he died, but «are it in that opened wide tbc gates of Heaven must have been, to let such monstrous feet within.'' n,, ttiis €."'5 The daudy who makes tho greatest flour ish isn't always in > flourishing condition.

Jan. 29th 1859.— "The simplicity and ace prevent its dropping stitches, to which er machines are liable, and which 1» brought the "chain stitch" into disrepute. One cannot but admire the beauty and uceuracy of its movements, and the entire absence of all noise, even when running at the rate of 2000 stitches and upward per minute. This alone must prove a great recommendation to it. Another merit is the good workmanship. The parts are made in terchangeable, so that in the event of accident to bine, any part can be replaced, at fling cost. It is, iudc_»d, a "mechanical wonder —a household necessity !"
