Butery mt the Shamrock. .When King Lerry, surrounded by his lords, vassals and Druids, was celebrating his birthday at Tarn, the ancient cap.tul of Ireland, it happened to be on the eve of Easter. The time had come when all the fires were to be extinguished, that after a while they might be relighted from the sacred torch consecrated to tlfe heathen gpds. In the interval of hallowed daik ness, suddenly there appeared a brilliant light at the top of the Stupes of Charitns. The sp'arks and flames rose from the mys terious camp, in profanation of the ancient faith of Tara. Who hud dared to profane the sacred darkness by unho y tires? What bold blasphemer ventured to ligbt the torch until the flame had been brought from the altar of the gods? The warriors grasped their arms and rushed up the hill to tear the infidel to pieces. Thiy seized him and dragged him down to the hull of judgement, but all the while he kept re citing prayers to the unknown God and when brought before the assembly of en raged idolaters, St. Patrick, who for seven years had be n Milcbo's herdsman slave, stood forth, like the heroic Paul, and ans» wered for himself. In his lonesome cap tivity he had learned to love the Irish people, and with the burden of salvation be had traversed the great plains from the mouth of the Boyne to the Slope of the Chariots, lie stood and preached to them all night—to the birth of the stars till the jjgrand ascension of the sun. lie spoke as never had man spoken in Tara. lie told them the story of the Kazarene, uf the Blessed Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Ghost—of Baptism, of the Eucharist—of all the Sublime faith of the (Jhurc.h of Home. Towards day li .lit the people be gan to believe, and fell into debate, pne with another. The arch Druid, the King, and two beautiful maidens were converted and baptised. The tumult increased the true fires of heaven were blazing in thu dark valley of Paganism, and St. Patrick preached on^intil the day dawn began to reveal the course of the Black-water, the Boyne and the hills of Cavan, and the heights of Slane. But the people could not understand the strange doctrine of the Trinity—how three persons should consti tute one Clod—and, with daylight, their hearts began to return to their idols. Sud denly the Apostle caught up a sprig of Shamrock, which had been holding up its triple palms in adoration of the one true God, and, holding it forth, he showed the people that three leaves growing fro»j a single stock constituted but one. Instantly the quick-witted people understood the mystery they rushed upon the Apoctle, and would have carried him on their shoul ders. From that hour Drudical super stition was overthrown upon tho ^JkuiM of Prostration. Blaraell'a Wife. A story is told of Lady Beaconfield's devotion to her lord and his'ambition wbich, if true, is a touching commentary on the unselfishness of womanly affection. On one occasion, when Disraeli was chan cellor of the exchequer, his wife accom panied him to the Parliament House. It was "budget" night—the most moment ous ef all sessions to the chancellor of the exchequer, for he bad io unfold his finan* cial plans for the ensuing year to a criti cal and not easily satisfied bouse. Disrae li, as be took, bis place iu tbe curria^iw* Marble. V J! wholly wrapt up in hi» subject and hie figured it was crisis in his career if he failed this night, he might take Wol eey's advice to Cromwell, "Fling away ambition Ilis wife entered the carriage also, softly, so as not to disturb the think er. In getting in, however, her finger was caurht by the door, which, shutting upon it, jammed it terribly and held it 80 fast that she could not withdraw it. She uttered no cry, made ne movement her tin and agony must have been intense. There was the finder crushed between the panels to Rpeak or attempt to withdraw it would disturb her lord—would drive the figures and arguments from his head. So there stayed the finder, every moment ire painful, until they reached the house, no.' did Disraeli hear a word of it till long after the famous debate of that night had become history. All that evening the faithful wife sat in the gallery, that her husband's quick glancing eye might not mis* her from it she bore the pain like martyr and like a woman who loves. No wonder that hy her husband's act fh« has become Viscountess Beaconfield still less wonder that, as Lady Beaeonfield, she is honored in England's proudest cas tles, and has taken her place in the here ditary society as naturally and easily as if she too had been "to the mannor born."— Lipjrincott's Magazine for June. The Marshall Times contains ft descrip tion of the marble quarries of Tama coudty, from which we take the following extract: "We were deeply interested by a visit to the quarries of Oolite marble and lime stone. The deposit is 12 feet thick with a light stripping of earth. The upper rook is somen hat fractured but makes splendid lime. The three lower layers are very massive and thick, with seams atconven* ient distances for easy working. Blocks of any drsired dimensions are easily procured for sawing purposes and the manufacture of table tops, mantles, orna ments, &c. The appearance or the polished marble is very beautiful, interesting and unique. Being a perfect mass of minute fossils connected together with a transpar ent erystal'ne cale spar, the solidity and compactness of the mass and exceeding tirmne.ss of its atomic structure render at susceptible of the highest polish known to art, while its beauty is enhanced by rich veins anil groupings of cream* uff, steel and brown co'oring. Some of this marble has uiready found a market at high figures, and us it not only rivuls in beauty Italian and Egyptian marble, but as there are no working dep jsits known to exist between liis oint and the Atlantic, it is evident hat an immense demand for this rare and n*autilul articio will arise, which will nt 0 i!y benefit the proprietors, but make Oriord a lur^eand tUmiu^ manufacturing town." On this subject we have something to ay. Six years ago a little girl of Mc Jregor—she is now a young lady—gave us a piece of polished Iowa, fossil marble. We wrote about it on several occasions, commending it to publ notice. The Liublie did'nt "notice" much, and our narhle-men seemed indifferent about it. 1 is abundant here scarcely a ravine is vvithout it. We have seen in the Patent ffice, ut Washington, all the bmutiful luarNes'ot the world and there is nune iike the IOWA fossil rock. Tbe word O^o lite is not applicable. That means fisb roe or eggs, petrified our specimens are wigs sht-lls, injects, little fish, snails— •spiral and ordinary—leaves and buds, together with everything the forest of old the waters of the Mississippi furnifhed. fhe water lines on our bluQs indicate that iur Great Iliver was oiCe in flow 200 feet ibove its present bed, or the blufft wer* 2"0 lower than where they now are we •loot care which. As we are told, ^the waters covered the preat deep," it may be irthodox to believe thar the land has come up out of the water, but we are not par ticular about theories. Before us is a splendid specimen of these fossil beauties handed us by Marshall Hatfield of this city. It is a world in itself—a book—a -tady. There is more company in it^ significance of pictures than in any mur-e um.

Raymond, editor-in-chief of the Times, created a profound sensation in newspaper and political circles. He leaves a wife, a son of 22, and three younger daughters. The 1'ost gives the facts of Mr. Ray monds death, from the best authoiity. as follows: "Mr. Raymond, accompanied by his daughter, went to Green wood cemetery, on yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of selecting a family plat. He intended to have the body of one of his children, who died a few weeks niro, r-moved frout the to his associate editors that he never felt better in his life, except a slight feeling of fatigue, consequent upon his loag walk through the cemetry. "He left the office about 8 oclock, and proceeded to his residence, in West Ninth street, where he remained until 8 o'clock, to recover from the fatigue of the after noon. Mr. Raymond left the hnut-e about 9 o'clock, remarking to the members of his family that he had an appointment to attend a political meeting. He was seen shortly alter, walking up Broadway, and one or two friends, who stood in front of Wullack's theatre, noticed his elastic step and general appearance of robust health/' "After attending the meeting, Mr. Ray mond returned to his residence, about II o'clock, and as soon as he had closed the door after him, *he fell heavily upon the floor. None of the inmates of the house heard the fall, however, having retired for the night. "Aliout 4 o'clock this morning, one of Mr. Raymond's children became restles, and, upwn becoming fully aroused, re marked that she heard sotnepereon breath ing heavily. The persons in the house were immediately awakened, and on de scending the hall-way, Mr. Raymond was found extended on the tloor, entirely un conscious, breathing heavily, and appar ently with great difficulty. He was car ried to his room, placed upon a bed, and physicians sent for. "Four physicians arrived soon after ward*, who pronounced him beyond all medical aid. They also declared the case to fie apoplexy. "i«r. Raymond lingered in IUI uncon rcious state until a o'clock, when he died, surrounded lv the members of his family. He passed away apparently with but lit tle pain. The news of his death caused much ex citement and a very general rpgret throughout the city. All the down-town hotels and newspaper offices displayed their flags at half mast, as a mark of're sppct. The Associated Pres» to-day adopted resolutions ?xpr«i8sive of profound sorrow at the death of Mr. Raymond. Tbe Lt| Drama* One of the greatest shames in the shape of an excuse for indecent theatrical per formances is that which asserts that the people decline to patronize the legitimate drama. Tho same precise argument lai^ht ba put forward by any other model artist exhibitor than the one who now con tiols tbe opera*house. Moreover, tbe assertion that the legiti mate drama will not pay is not true. If we are not mistaken, the engage ments of Booth, llistori, Kean, Murdoch, Bandmaiiti, and other first-class exponents of the legitimate drama, have alway crowded the house* in which they occur red. Admitting even that indecency pays butter than its opposite, this is no excuse for the prostitution of Chicago's noble op era house to its present uses. The saute precise reason is heard every day from criminals, wl o urtie that tin y steal I ecause it pays them Letter than honest efforts lo obtain a livelihood. Every scamp who may open some "anatomical "museum," or some model-artist exhibition, may plead that be does not present Elizabeth, or Mary Stuart, or Hamlet, for the reason that it pays him better to pander to the in decent elements in human nature. This tiling of charging certain moral obliquities upon the public is as old as the career of footpads and sneak-thieves. Each of this cla*s is always ready to refer his ime to the world, in place of putting the respons ibility where it belongs—in his own vitiated uature. It is a base libel on the majority of the people of Chicago to assert that they pre fer lewdness, and the libidinous sugges tiveness of naked women, to the presenta tions of the master exponents of the high er drama. It is not the better class of people who support these exhibitions. On the contrary, the better class—those who wish to preserve their daughters and sit* ters from imbibing the poison which fills the atmosphere of the opera-house like a subtle perfume—give the performances row in vogue at tbe place of amusements, a wide berth. It is a noteworthy fact that not a singls newspaper in Chicago has come forward as the apologist of the degradation to which the opera-house has been subjected under its present management. Most of them, with that true currjsh instinct which necessitates barking at something, set up a vigorous yelp at the Times but none of them venture to contrudict the charges which we made against the opera-house management. Our position is substanti ally that of the public. It is for the interests of society that these charges were made. It is true that the interests of decency begin to have precedence over those of a private individual.—Chicago Tuius. SAV*D BY LATIV.—A certain Milanese doctor, remarkable for his credulity, fan eied that birds flew, not at the sound of a voice, but at the sense of the words utter ed. He one day had the curiosity to ac company a bird-catcher, with nets, for the purpose of proving his favorite theory. Just as a large flock were about descending into the Bests, the doctor shouted loudly from his place of conceal ment, in Latin, "You'll be caught, my fine fpllows." The birds of course were alarmed, and flew away. When the en raged bird catcher sternly rebuked the not believe Latin." V that the birds understood OBSEQTIES OF A BEE.— A gentleman wri ting to a friend from Glasgow, Scotland, relates the following incident:—"Whilst walking with a friend in a garden near Fabrick, we observed two bees issuing from one of the hives, bearing between them the dead body of a comrade with which they flew for the distance of ten yards. We followed them closely, and no- the earth—and the solicitude with which they pushed against it two little stones, doubtless in memoriam. Their task being ended, they paused for about a minute, perhaps to drop over the grave of their little friend a sympathising tear, and then tbeytew#wa$»w ted the care with which they selected a n.aid having heard of it, proceeded to a convenient hole at the side of the gravel .. walk—the tenderness with which they I ®us,^8hoP' Or I (Ion of TarllT.

The St. Louis Republican says that one of th« most striking peculiarities of the American people is their love and respect for the dead that we select the most beautiful locations for our cemetries, and embellish them with the works of art which in other countries adorn public gar dens and popular museums, and that what is truly genuine and universally national in our relijiious sentiment is clus.ored around the thought of death.

Wo DERS OF TIIE IIEAKT'S ACTIOX.—The effect of everything that touches the heart is multiplied by the intensity of the heart's own changes. Hence it is so sensative— so true and so quick an index of the body's state. Hence, also, it is that it never wearies. Let me remind you of the work done by our hearts in a day. A man's to tal outward work, his whole effect upon the world, in twenty-four hours, has been reckoned at about three hundred and fifty foot-tons. That may be taken as a good "hard day's work." During the same time, the heart has been working at the rate of one hundred and twenty foot-tons. That is to say, if all the pulses of a day and night could be concentrated and wel ded into one great throb, that throb would be enough to throw a ton of iron one hun dred and twenty feet into the air. And yet the heart is never weary. Many of us are tired after but feeble labors few of us can hold a poker ont j»t arm's length without, after a few minutes, dropping it. But a healthy heart, and many an unsound heart, too—though sometimes you can tell in the evening, by its stroke, that it has been vexed dur ing the day, that it has been thrown off its balance by the turmoils and worries of life—goes on beating through the night while we are asleep, and when we awake in the morning we find it at work, fresh as if it had only just begun to beat. It does this because upon each stroke of work there follows a period, a brief but a real period of rest because the n«xt stroke which comes is but the natural sequence of that rest, and made to match it be cause, in fact, each beat, is in force, in scope, in character, in everything, the simple expression of the heart's own en ergo and state.—Appleton's Journal. SLIBP ALONE.—Miss Susan B. Anthony is out with a paragraph in the Revolution recommending that married people should no longer sleep together that every man, woman and child, should have a bed that those who are just going to house-keeping should buy no double beds and she ex claims with enthusiasm "Cribs, cots, and single beds for health and happines!" Here is the paragraph upon which she ba^es her advice: The Laws of Life says "More quar rels arise between brothers, twten listers, between hired girls, between apprentices in machine shops, between clerks in stores, between hired men, bo tween husbands and wives, owing to electrical changes through which their ervous systems go by lodging togethei night after night under the same bed clothes than by almost any other disturb ing cause. There is nothing that will so derange the nervous system of a person that is eliminative in nervous force as to lie all night in bed with another person who is absorbent in nervous force. The absorber will go to sleep and rest all night while eliminator will be tumbling and tossing, restless and nervous, and waken in the morning fretful, peevish, fault finding, and discouraged. No two persons, no matter who they are, should habitually sleep together. One will thrive and the other will loso. This is the law, and in married life it is defiued almost univers ally." In regard to this Idea the N«t York World remarks that "it is time enough to sleep alone when one is dead." There is, however, some truth in what Mis* Anfcbo* ny says. One Sabbath evening, at a Sunday school concert, the pastor of a popular church said "Boys, when I .heard your beautiful songs to-night, I had hard work to keep my feet still. What do you sup» pose is the trouble with them "Chil» blaius, sir,'' said ft little sixyear old boy, and the answer, notwithstanding the solemnity of the eocasion, set tbe whole audience in a roar.

"When I went ^to Mr. (Irant't office found him talking with Mr. Cresswell, both sitting down and both smoking ci gars. (Here Bassett smiled.) They both received me pleasantly, and I was given a cigar by Mr. Grant, the remains of which I still have5(exhibiting a cigar stump.) Our conversation WHS free and ccrdiuL* Mr. Grant asked me several questions about the resources of llayti, its history, customs of people, Ac., wbich I an swered as well as I knew how. Mr. Grant opened a map of the West Indies as big as that tabl ?, and referred to it. During our conversat on Mr. Cresswell also examined a cyclopaedia regarding some points that arose. The president was very emphatic, and at the same time very cautious about expressing himself about the policy of annexation. He said his own views were in favor of such poli cy, but that he thought in all cases th« people of the country tube anrexed should first show themselves anxious for union with us, and that then it would be a sub ject for the considetation of onr govern ment. You see he was very careful in bis expression on that subject, saying that even after a people showed themselves fa vorable to annexation, it would still be a question for our consideration. He said he had no particular instructions to give me. I told him I could only bring to the office, with which he had honored me, pat» riotism, honesty, ffdeiity and industry, lie replied that he felt there could be some advantage to be derivsd from my appoint ment to llayti that being accredited to the people of the same race as myself, I would be received with more cordial and be enabled perhaps to be of more ser vice to the United States. -I told him I had assurances that I would be welt re ceived. The interview, I supposed, oce»* pied altogether about three-quarters «f an hour. Flaw il nut era There are people who have a natural faculty for detecting evil, in every man's character. They have a fatal scent for carrion. Their memory is like a museum I once saw at a medical college, and illus trates all the hideous distortion* and mon strous growths* and revolting diseases hj which humanity can be troubled or afflict ed. They think they havo a wonderful knowledge of human nature. But it is a blunder to mistake the "Newgate Calen dar'' for a biographical dictionary. A less offensive type of the same dency leads some people to find appat satisfaction in the discovery and procla mation of tl.e slightest defects in the hab its of good men and the conduct of public institutions. They cannot talk about the benefits conferred by a great hospital, without lamenting some insignificant blot in its laws, and some trifling want of pru dence in its management. Speak to them of a man whose good works everybody is admiring, and they cool your ardor by res glutting that he is so rough in his manner, or so smooth—that his temper is so hasty, or that he is so fond of applause. They seem to hold a brief requiring them to prove the impossibility of human perfection. They detect tbe slightest alloy in the gold of human goodness. That there are spots in the sun is, with them, something more than an obverse fact—it takes rank with apriori and necessary truths. There are people who, if they heaiMm organ, find out at once which are the poor, est stops. If they hear a great speaker, they remember nothing but some slip ia the construction of a sentence, the con* sistency of a metaphor, or the evolutions of an argument. While their friends are admiring the wealth and beauty of a tree whose branches are weighed down with fruit, they discovered a solitary bou^U lost in the golden affluence, ou Which no# is hanging.

Women were allowed to vote, though but few availed themselves of the privilege. A lady member of the Allen street church observed her husband coming to vote, and at once rushed over to him and took the ticket out of his hand. Having examined it carefully, she gave it back to him and exclaimed: "You m*f vote that, dear that's all right."' This incident created considerable merriment.
