A New and frightfully literal linns
latlon of tho New Testament has been
printed, in which Jolin'the Baptist is
styled "John the Dipper." Another
specimen is :-"NeUh6rdo men light a
lamp pnd put it under a corn-measure,
but on a lamp stand, and itrgivetli light
to all who are in the family." This new
version, the Springfield Republican sug
gests, might suit that rustic minister
who, in a hot controversy against im
mersion, took for his tefct, "Be not car
ried about with diver*."
Tite bill-"to facilitate postal, com

The Loudon Review tells the follow
ing anecdoto of a member of ft weU
known publishing firm in Boston:
"One day, at a dinner party, a would
be wit, thinking to puzzle Mr. Fields,
and make snort for the company; an
nounced prior to Mr. Fields* arrival
that he had himself wiitten some poet
ry, and intended -ftb submit'it' to Mr.
Fields as Southey's. At tho proper tribK
ment, therefore, after the guests iwere.
seated, he began: 'Friend Fields Thave'
been a good deal exercised of late, try
ing to find out in Southey's poems his
well known lines running thus (repeat
ing the line*, he had composed.) Can
you tell us about what time he wrote
them?' *1- do not remember to have
met them before,' replied Mr. Fields,
'and there were only two periods in
Southey's life wheii such lines could
possibly hnve l?een written by him.'
4When were those?' gleefully asked the
witty questioner.' ' ^Somewhere,' said
Mr. 'Fields, 'about that, early period of
his existence when he was naving tlie
measels and cutting, his first teeth; or
near the close of Ills life, when his bruin
had softened und bei had fallen into
idiocy. Tho versification belongs to the
ineasels period, - but - the expression
clearly bietrays the idiotic oncf1. The
qnestiorier smiled faintly, but tho com
pany roared."

Female Adornment.
The Pittsburgh CUtholic of this week
contains an editorial on tlie' return of
Christmas, from which tho following is
a suggest!vo extract:
"It is a Christian axiom that tho su
perfluities of the wealthy are tho patri
mony of tho poor; and, oh, how nirich
more creditablo would.it not be for rich
ladies and gentlemen to lay outxhoir
superfluous wealth to "feed the hungry,
and clothe the naked" orphan, than to
waste it on vanity?in ,the purchase of
flowers, and trinkets, and tassels and
feathers for personal adorrttiient! It is
truly humiliating to consider the irra
tional excess to which 'modern fashion]
has forced some of- our ladies^ Only |
think of it! Tho feather that hung from
tho lower extremity of a fowl's , back
bone, is procured at any cost, as the
highest ornament of our modern lady's
head 1 Truly vanity, liko' 'pride, pre
cedes a fall. Tho true ornament of a
Christian, lady is modouiy* simplicity,
and charity."
The Spectral Face f hat President IJn
coln Saw.
In a recent lecture by Bishop Simp
son he relates many interesting partic
ulars -and incident^ *of-Mr. Lincoln's
private life, and repeated tho story which
he had heard from Mrs. Lincoln, that
when the news of Mr. Lincoln's first
election renched hishotnein Springfield,
ho saw a reflection of his own face, dead
in tho glass beside the reflection of the
living countenance. When'he first saw
it he thought it was an optical delusion
and turned away from the glass, but
when he looked in it again he saw again
tho double reflection. After resting
some minutes ho looked in the glass tho
third time, and again saw the spectral
face behind his own. .Thecircumstance
made a deep Impression upon his mind,
hut ho never spoke of it until about two
weeks before tno last Presidential elec
tion, when he related it to his wife. She
?wub fearful that he would not be re
elect**^ and ho told her of this incident
with toolnterpreEation^hepiU Upon it?
that would be re-elected, but'would
not live out his term. And atterwards
when the plans of the future were dis
cussed and he was asked what he would
do after the second term of office had
expired,. he ulways replied with the
Eroviso?"If I live." The . Bishop said
e could not explain the circumstance
or determine whether it was merely an
optical delusion <or an intimation of
warnin^from cm*" high. ""MiT Lincoln
j always regarded it as the latter.
Women In the Territories.
i The natural law. which prgyj^esa
j larger male than female population for
lour little planet, is felt, it seems in
1 Washington territory, and a me&ber of
' its Legislature, Hon. A. S. Mercer, has
offered inducements - to the New ?Ehg
land women' to emigrate out5there at
once. An experiment on a smrtll scale
was made in 1861, and partly succeeded.
He has returned with the official sanc
tion of the territorial government, for
the purposes* taking baok with him a
ship load of tho youth and beauty that
! grace the towns and cities of tho East.
Some months ago Mr. Mercer's pros
pects were vastly better than they now
seem for a full cargo. Still he feels as
sured that the steamship ..Continental,
which will clear from New York to-day,
will bear over the heaving bosom of the
r Atlantic and Pacifiq Oceansor 500

West. These women are principally
from the New England States?many
of them "frdm Boptoh 'arid: Lowell?

Arlemas says, "as for the Wards,

them. In New York and Boston there
Is the fust Ward, and the second Ward,
and so on the one hnndreth Ward, ana
in Paris and London, and everywhere,
we are honored with the same remem
brances. I guess that's sutn honor. And
even down South, its more than proba

even the wOrkin apartments in the pen

John Bright's adhesion to and con

James Madison, who has been called
"The Father of the Constitution," was
the Secretary of State who announced
the twelfth amendment to that instru

September 25, 1804. After more than
sixty years Mr. Seward has tho rare
satisfaction of announcing the adoption
of the anti-slavery amendment by the
requisite three-fourths of the States.
