East-madb Pudding. Take half a pound each of currants, flour, and chopped beef suet, four ounces treacle, and a breakfast-cupful of milk ; add a little spice ; mix well together, and boil it in a cloth or basin for four hours. Bice Cakes. Boil rice until it is soft, and while warm make it into cakes or flat balls. Dip the balls into a beaten egg, and then roll them in Indian meal till thoroughly coated. This done, fry them in lard, which is better than butter for this purpose. Serve them with sauce, or with butter, or with cream and sugar. Good Men Make Gecra Horses. A horse is never vicious or intractable with out a direct cause. If a horse is restive or timorous you may he sure that these faults arise from defects in his education. He has been treated either awkardly or brutally. Commence the education of a horse at his birth ; accustom him to the presence, voice and sight of man ; speak and act gently ; caress him, and do not startle him. All chastisement or cruelty confuses the animal and makes him wild, They are good men who make good horses. Manures. Dr. Voelcker says, in an English journal, that if a farmer wishes to lay out money to the greatest advantage in the purchase of artificial manures, he should discard the recommendations of competing manufacturers;, he should en deavor to procure at the cheapest rate and in a separate form all the various fer tilizing substances which are best adapted to a particular crop on a given soil, and to prepare himself, the several mixtures which are sold under various names at a much Higher price than that at which he can make them. The Maine Farmer indor sea the doctrine of this eminent authority and expresses the opinion thaf the plan proposed is a perfectly feasible one, and that it might be adopted in this country with satisfactory results. . "Weeds in Walks. According to The Canada Farmer, these may be destroyed by applying a solution made of four pounds of arsenic and eight pounds of soda boiled in 12 gallons of water. To every gallon of this mixture three gallons of cold water should be added, and the liquid carefully sprinkled over the walks while it is yet warm. It is desirable to do this in fine weather and when the walks are. dry, " iso that the weeds and weed-seeds may have a full benefit of the application Care must be taken not to let any of the liquid fall on the leaves or reach the roots of any plant it is not desired to kill, in 24 hours after the poison is put on the walks every weed is killed ; and if it be thoroughly done, the walks will be clean through the season. When to cut Grain. Coleman's Rural World calls attention to experiments which have been instituted from time to time to determine at what period grain should be harvested to secure the great est advantages.- The unanimous opinion appears to be, that if grain is cut soon after the straw has turned yellow below the head, while the lower part of the stem is still green and the seed yet re mains in a soft and doughy state, the grain will weigh more to the bushel and yield a greater amount from a given space of ground ; that more and better flour is made from it ; and where the straw is to be fed to stock, it is relished better and is more nutritious than if the grain was allowed to stand until it be came fully ripe. Some very careful tests of this character were made in Yorkshire, England, by John Hannam, and he sums up the loss by shelling and in the weight and quality of the grain through letting it stand until folly ripe-as equal to $6 per acre. , The SorxjNO System. In considera tion of the fact that pastures have suf fered in common with all crass lands. while the stock of cattle cannot easily be reduced on acceuht of the extremely low prices, llie Massachusetts i? tough man suggests that it is worth while for the farmer to consider whether he had not better adopt the system of partial soiling, or; perhaps better of buying extra feeding stuns m the shape of an seed or cotton seed meal and feeding reasonable quantity once or twice a day throughout the summer. Many farmers put their cowsn the barn nights, and it is a very easy matter to ieea out say a quart of oil meal morning and night. The advantage of this would be to in crease the quantity of milk and to carry the stock along with less injury to the pastures, the natural consequence of over-stocking while the value of the ma nure would be considerably greater. Furthermore, the freer use of artificial manures on pastures and the use of feeding stuffs for stock while at grass will rapidly improve the farm. Canada Thistle Cube. A correspon dent says : I see by a late discussion in your club that you are still at war with the Canada thistle. They never grow down South, and having lived about 11 years in the land of strawberry short cakes, I had forgot the miseries of bind ing Canada thistles in thin shirt-sleeves. But I once realized it up in Broome County, and I had no difficulty in des troying them in every case. I cut them with a scythe about the- time they began to blossom, and allowed none to go to seed. This kills the crop ; but there is a crop of young plants in the" ground for next year's growth. Let these be mown 'the next year about blossoming time, and before any seed are ripe enough to grow, and '. as there were no seeds ripened on the last year's crop, there are now no plants in the ground to grow the next year. Of course the crop ceases. "Unless they have learned to be more ugly than " they used to be, any patch can be des troyed in two years. But care must be taken that none goes to seed either year, and as these roots only grow one year, their entire destruction is certain. I have . thus exterminated them on rich bottom lands, and know whereof I speak. Frightened from His Profession. A young Kentucky physician who had been regularly educated for his profes sion, was called to the bedside of a pa tient that he had been attending with his best care for some time, but who had obstinately grown worse and worse, un til now bis end seemed very near. " Dector," said the dying man, "lam dying I am certain I am dying, and I believe you have killed me. " 'The doctor seemed to think very earnestly for a mo ment or two, and then quite gravely and seriously replied : " Yes, I see that you are dying ; and, on reflection, I believe that you are right I believe that I have killed you ; but, I here take my oath that, if God will forgive me for having unintentionally murdered you, I will never murder another I will never give another dose of medicino professionally as long as I live. " And he kept his oath ; he at once quit medicine entirely ; turned his attention to the study of law ; ob tained license in due course, and, after a few years' successful practice, became one of the most eminent Circuit Judges of that day in Kentucky now nearly forty years ago. American Feasting. When Mr. Gal lot went through the United States with M'amselle D'Jeck, the celebrated ele phant, he one evening was warm in his praise of the hospitalities and socialities of the mother country ; amid other in stances, he quoted one of the Rutland punchbowls, which on the christening of the young Marquis, was built so large that a email boat actually set sailing up on it in which a boy sat, who ladled out the liquor". "I guess," said one of the company, "I've seen a bowl that 'ud beat that to eternal smash ; tor, at my brother's christeng, the bowl was so deep that when we young uns said it warn't sweet enough, father sent a man down in a diving be to stir tip the sugar Items of Interest. Out of 1,000 gallons of seized liquor recently turned over to the State Assayer of Massachusetts, only two quarts were found to be unadulterated. The total assessed value of real and personal property in New York for 1872 amounts to over a thousand million of dollars, or just about one-half of our na tional debt. Friends of the murdered Capt. Colvo- corresses are confident of their ability to prove that he had 880,000 with him at tho time of his death, and that he was robbed of it. The San Francisco Alta says that by the closest estimate that can be made at the present time, about one thousand acres of cotton will be raised in Califor nia this season. Two boys who had been engaged in the riot in the House of Refuge, escaped from their cell in the N. Y. Tombs by crawling through a hole 28 by 6 inches : just like boys. Major Sidney S. Lyon, formerly State Geologist of Kentucky, and one of the most prominent men in his profession, died of paralysis, at his residence, in Jeffersonville, Ind. The Burmese Embassy which recently landed in .England brought costly pres ents, among which was a magnihcent bracelet for Queen Victoria, the gold of which weighs seven pounds. Through the Cumberland Valley, Md from Harisburg to Hagerstown, the wheat crop is a failure. Mere and there one half a crop will be made ; the rest is thin and of no account, and is being ploughed up. A little child that had incautiously approached a cage in the N. Y. Central Park Menagerie, and leaned its little face up against the bars was attacked by a ieo pard and badly lacerated before it could be rescued. A Hogshead of pig copper weighing over two tons was stolen from pier b New York, by thieves who got under the dock and cut a hole through to the hogs head, and drew the ore out from the bottom. The U. S. Secretary of War issued an order directing that pursuant to the act of Congress of June 10, 1872, the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands will be discontinued from and after June 30, 1872. Holzenbake and Lloyd charged with the murder of Colonel George W. Fish, were hung at Oglethorpe, Georgia. Holzenbake confessed his guilt, but Lloyd's last words were to the effect that the blood of no man was on his hands. A boy of 10 or 12 years, on the rail road track in Jersey City, between Mon mouth and Colgate streets, was caught by the cow-catcher of a locomotive, thrown into the air and over a wall, me eight or ten feet high, and was thought to be fatally injured. England was alarmed a short time since on account of a sensational report which told of a steady and great decrease in English herds. Enthusiastic people formed a solemn league and covenant by which they bound themselves to eat no veal henceforth and forever. An unknown man was crushed to death between the bridge and the ferry boat at the foot of grand street, Williams burgh, New York. A Prayer Book was found on him, in which was written, " Jas. F. Pape; his own : Aug. 25, 1851, 9 Clinton street." He was apparently about 60 years of age. A severe storm, accompanied by heavy thunder and remarkably vivid lightning, was experienced in London and various other portions of England. A cotton mill at Bolton, near Manchester, was struck by lightning, and some of the operatives were stunned though none were seriously injured. The "Lord Nelson" tavern ot Dover was also struck and, taken fire, was burned. Many of the inmates were injured. The Memory, It was said of Thoreau, we believe. that he could take up any given number of lead-pencils without counting. A celebrated trapper once assured U3 that he could tell how many balls he had in his bullet-pouch by placing his hand on it ana without stopping to count them, and added, " I can tell the number of bullets instantly without counting, as you pronounce a word without spelling it. ooutney was accustomed to lane in the substance of a book in turning the leaves over continuously, glancing down the pages. Houdan the magician trained himself to quickness of percep tion when a boy, by running past a show-window at full speed, and then trying to tell what was in it. We once met a man on a canal-boat, who was amusing himself by going from pas senger to passenger, and telling almost every one where he had seen them be fore, on such a train, in such a hotel, in in such a street, giving date and place to people with whom he had never ex changed a word. This training of the faculties in particular directions is car ried to a marvelous extreme by woods men, trappers, and men who guess the weights of animals. Perhaps the most remarKable instances are the markers who leap from log to log at the mouth of a boom, standing on the floating log and translating instantly an old mam into a new one, remembering what eqi valent to give for each of a hundred marks, and chopping it upon the log in the time that it floats its length. It is said that Thoreau knew the relative order of the flowering of all the plants m the Concord woods, and knew the note of every bird, and a thousand other out-of-the-way things besides. Physiological Action op Quinine. The physiological action of quinine has lately been the subject of detailed experi ment by J5inz, who found it to have ex' traordmary power in arresting the pro cess oi fermentation ana putrefaction, ana to be a powerful poison for low or ganisms, or, in other words, for all mov ing bodies consisting of protoplasms, It appears to kill fungi and bacteria. which accompany fermentation and putrefaction, and puts a stop to these processes. It arrests the motion of the white blood corpuscles, and thus pre vents them from making their exit from the blooa-vessels. It, therefore, dimin isnes or arrests tne iormation of pus in inflammation, pus consisting in great measures of an accumulation of white corpuscles which have issued from the vessels. It also destroys the power of certain suostances to produce ozone. The red blood corpuscles have this power, and, by depriving them of it, quinine, when present in the blood, must diminish the change of tissue in the body, and thereby lessen the pro- duction of heat. It is also found that quinine lessens oxidation m the blood other substances, such as snake poison increasing it. vvnen putria nuids are injected into the circulation of an animal, its temperature rises ; out if these are previously mixed with quinine, this rise is arrested, or very much diminished, According to Ziuntz, the use of quinine has a marked influence upon the excre tion of urea, the amount diminishing very greatly. A gentleman in Massachusetts, being threatened with a contagious disease, said to his little son, who, in an affectionate mood, wished to embrace him, "You mush't hug me ; you'll catch the scarlet fever." Willie, standing back, looked in amazement, upon his papa (who, by the way, is a pattern of propriety), and qmckly asked, "Wbyt papa, who did you hug ?" FOREIGN CORRESPONDENCE. Soenes in Switzerland An Old CasQe.with its Dungeon Horrors The Loveliest of Swiss Lakes Geneva Washerwomen at Work, etc., eto. , , ; At noon, we took the train for Lausanne, where we arrived about 1.30 p. m. Hav ing to wait till 4 o'clock for the train to Chillon, we went to the Hotel Gibbon, where we had lunch. Looking out of the windows, . we could see the garden" n which Gibbon, the historian, wrote the concluding portion of his great work over eighty years ago. The day was hot, the streets filled with a lime-like dust, and -not being able to find a carriage, had to walk up the steep hill to the principal portion of the town We visited the Cathedral, which is a gothre edifice of simple and massive construction, and had a fine view of Lake Leman and the vicinity from the tower. We wan dered around the place untill the train started, and at 5.30 p. m., were at the depot at Veytaux, Chillon. . ti We sent our trunks up to the Hotel des Alps, and walked down the track to the Castle of Chillon, which was about an eighth of a mile distant. Crossing the bridge leading from the main land to the Castle, we were met by a guide,, who took us through the different portions of it. Few objects in Switzerland are more familiar, and I might also say, hackneyed, than this same Castle; so often has it been described by the poet, painted by the artist, and written about by every traveler who lias been within its walls, The Castle itself, is not a striking object; it is neither massive, nor very picturesque, and the beauty of the site is greatly di minished by the railway which runs close to it. But the sad story of Bonnivard, the prisoner of Chillon, and the innumer able poetical associations which cluster around its antique walls, will make it always an object, of deep and perpetual interest. The interior of the Castle is well worth a visit. There is quite a gar rison attached to it, and when we went in . the courtyard, we found one of the drill sergeants putting a company of raw re cruits, through the " goofe step." Over the principal entrance are the following; words inscribed by the Bernese in 1643 : " Gott der Herr segne den Ein und Ans gang. (May uoa wess all who come in and go ont). We were shown a number of dungeons cut out of the solid rock, in which the early reformers and subse quently prisoners of state were confined : across one of the vaults, we noticed a beam blackened by age, on which, the guide said, the coEdemned prisoners were formerly hung. In the dungeons are eight pillars, one of which is half built into Jthe wall ; to tlese pillars the prisoners were chained, and on the rocky pavement, the steps of Bonnivard and other illustrious prisoners have left their footprints. Among the thousands or names inscribed on the pillars, we saw those of Byron and Dumas. A short distance from the Castle is the Isle ue Paix, a small spot on which three trees no w flourish. Bonnivard speaks ot it as follows : - ? j " And then there was a little isle, Which iu my very face did smile ; The only one in view." We then returned to the hotel, where we passe A the evening viewing the lake and the exquisite sun set, than which nothing could be more beautiful. The sky was covered with a rosy light, which gave to the summit of the mountains most lovely appearance, which was re fleeted in the calm mirror like surface of the lake, which lay at our feet. I should think one of the most agreeable ways of spending a summer delightfully, would be to put up at one of the first-class hotels you find on Lake Leman, and from there make excursions to different parts of Switzerland. During the summer, the Swiss hotels are always crowded, and the stream of travel often becomes a torrent ; hence the necessity of telegraphing for rooms. The tourists are of all degrees and languages, but the English and Americans seem to be the majority after the natives them selves ; my own countrymen, I am happy to say, being generally popular, on ac count of the liberality of their opinions, their lavish expenditures, and the courtesy of their manners. Large as is the travel on the Continent, and superior as are the accomodations, nothing is more apparent than that the people do not enjoy the same advantages in their intercourse with each other, as they do in the United States. The wealthy classes alone, constitute the Continental tourist, and you can quickly notice the difference between a watering place in Switzerland, and a watering place in America. At the latter, all is good humor, bustle, and an absence of caste ; whereas at the former, all is cold, silent, courtly and slow, each group or clique keeping to itself ; and even Americans may live in the same hotel for a month without making an acquaintance. One of the most noticeable things we have seen, is the fine appearance and good ad dress of the waiters at the hotels. They are the smartest looking, and best dressed men we meet, and are always very atten tive, and usuaJly speak tw or three lan guages. At 8.45 a. m. on the following day, we left by steamboat for Geneva, stopping at various owns and villages on the north shore of the lake to land and take on pas sengers. Lake Leman is the largest in Switzer land, and in some respects, the most beau tiful. Its beautiful blue color is only to be compared with that of the Blue Grotto in the Bay of Naples. It has for centuries been a theme for writers in all countries. Its connection with some of the greatest names of modern times is universally known. Voltaire and Goethe speak of it with entuhsiasm; Eosseau makes it the scene of his impassioned romance, the Nouvelle Heloise ; the exquisite poems of Byron, who dwelt for some time on its shores, faintly described its varied beau ties ; Alexander Dumas deems it worthy of comparisonwith the Bay of Naples ; indeed, the arts of the poet and the painter have been exhausted to do justice to this lovely expanse of water, which combines the sunny softness of Lake Maggiore with the imposing grandeur of the Lake of Luzerne. When we reached Morges, we had a fine view of Mt. Blanc, and it was always in sight till we reached Geneva. Here our tour through Switzerland was at an end. Two days passed quickly in the society of friends, and viewing the city and its surroundings. The city is mag nificently situated at the southwest ex tremity of the lake, and on both banks of the Rhone which rushes through it, a clear, but dark blue stream. -The houses are nearly all six stories high", and. built of a yellowish or cream colored stone, and having in the centre a large courtyard, which is usually occupied as a garden. The streets are very clean, and we saw no beggars, and but few police. One thing struck us, while wandering around the city, and that was the innumer able shops for the sale of je.welry, watches ana! fancy goods. The patterns and exe cution of jewelry shown us were exquisite, and at prices far below what we would have to pay for the same goods in New York. We also visited -several musical box factories. Here you can buy music boxes from $5 to $3,000. We saw chairs stools, albums, work bfjxes, and even de canters fitted up with musical boxes. Though Geneva is the centre of an ad mirable system ot railway communications it is one of the few places in which the diligence, which used to be seen lumber ing over all the post roads of the Cooti aeut, still lingers, T!nilwnva Iidta Tint, vet nenetrftted to jtChamouni ind other parts of Savoy, and communications are yet kept up by this strange looking vehicle of which it is difficult to convey any idea to an Ameri can reader. .The office of the diligence was situated about two blocks from he Hotel Metropole, where we were staying, and we had a chance of seeing those vehicles every . morning, taking in their compliment xf tourists for . the trips to Chamounix and Mt. Blanc. Imagine the coupe of a railway carriage, and old fash ioned carriage and a Broadway omnibus, all joined together, with a doctor's gig, the driver's seat, removed from the back to the front, placed upon the top ; and that will give you a faint idea of what a Swiss diligence resembles.' a The horses, the harness,. and the driver baffle descrip tion. Lexicon "co.uld not do them justice. Geneva is the Capital of the smallest can ton of the confederation. Voltaire, when residing h'ereused to- ridicule its diminu tive size by "saying, " When I snaKe my wig, I powder the whole canton." In walking on the Pont des liergues, one of the bridges which crosses the Rhone, we noticed on both sides of the river, long wooden sheds, from which projected a large number of washboards, each- one being presided over by a stout bwiss wo man, who pounds her customer's clothing with a huge wooden mallet, and keeps up an animated conversation with her neigh bor at the same time. It may be- a yery effective 'way of re moving the dirt, but I thought it rather rough on the clothes. It was a singular sight to see nearly fifty of these washwomen all talking and ham-' mering together, and every time they wished tc he more emphatic or convincing in their argument, they would bring down the mallet with a force that would make the old shed rattle. While contemplating the labors of these water nymphs, from my stand point as a married man, and " Knowing h6w it was myself," when putting ort- clean linen: to discover the absence of a button, 1 could not hut think what an immense amount of trouble and vexation they were weekly inflicting on the married men and women of Geneva, by their reckless use of the mallet, when they are knocking the dirt out, and the buttons" off of all the clothes entrusted to their scare. I left this scene of mangled shirt bosoms, feeling happy in the con sciousness that Geneva was not my abid ing place. Ihe H-x-Ciueen Isabella of Spain, was stopping at the Metropole, and occu pied one wing of it with her suite. I met her in .the corridor on her way to her Carriage." She is a stout, coarse looking person, and had very little of that divinity that doth hedge a King or a Queen, about her. It she had on a calico dress, and stood guard over an apple stand, she would really have not looked out of place. B. M. ' T i Tales if Toads. C ijreo. jyi. mead states kis experience with toads in the Ohio Farmer. Unless their sky i broken they are perfectly harmless. They will eat any bug but the potato bug. In Pittsfield, Mass., had an uncle, one of the finest gardeners in the town, and "he, to the no little amusement of friends, used to pick up those venomous toads m his hands, whenever , he could find nice fat ones, carry them home and put them in hi3 gardeni to- catch the ; bugs and worms. He said to me one day: "They will beconMfluitfl tame if you pet them a little, -wi jnought that a little singular, but ooacluded,toJ, try it. When I went home I found one in the shed close to the kitchen and commenced. .At first I caught a bug or fly and stood as far off as I could -and dropped it down in front of my pet. I did not have long to wait, for the bug had hardly dropped before it disappeared . Each day I went to see and feed him, and went up closer, until he got se tame that he would at any time tane a Dug or ny out of my fingers. i then began to handle him, and if chanced to move him from his nice lit tle corner he .would go back there and seem to wait 'for me to come and see hiin. " s. - - . . Dr'Han-is said twenty years ago that he supposed the odor of the squash bug (corcus Tri8tis) would protect it from the toad : and. test the matter he of fered one tea grave-looking Buf o under a cabbagey He seized it eagerly,' but spit it out instantly, reared up on his hind legs and put his front feet on the top of his head for i an instant, as if in pain, '-.and jihen" disappeared across the garden in a" series of the greatest leaps a toad ever made. Perhaps the bug bit the biter. -,JNot satisfied . with this, Dr H. hunted up another toad, which lived under the-" piazza, and always sunned himself in one place in the grass, and offered him a squash bug, which he took and swallowed,, winking m a very satisfi ed manner. Twenty other fine bugs.fol lowed the first, in a few moments, with no difficulty or hesitation in the taking or the swallowing, though from the wrig gling and contortions it appeared their corners did not set well within. The stock of bugs being then exhausted a col&nyof smooth blacklarvae was foand on a white birch, each about three quar ters of an inch long, and over one hun dred; these were fed to the waiting foadt Touching one of them with the end of a straw, it would coil around it, and then when shaken before him he would . seize and swallow it, at first eugerly, but with diminished zest as the number increased, until it became neces sary, to.rub the worm against his lips for some time before he could decide about it. He. would then take it and sit with hif lipsxjar for a short ; time, gathering strength ana resolution, ana then swal low by a .aesperate enort. x nere is no telling wiiat-the number or result would have been, as the dinner-bell rang as the 101st disappeared, and by. the close of the .meal he . bad retired to his hole, nor did be appear for four days in his sun ning place.. It is to be hoped that he slept -w-ell, - but there might have been mgmmares. v A-rariH esirl 14 years bid, named Mar gaiteliQarty. visited her aunt, a Mrs. Samib,:at,86 Water St., N- Y., and was leffebf her to wateli the cooking of somfe hsttior supper. One of the boarders, WilliSm" "Gordon, was taking some of it from thai pan with his hand, and she pushed his arm away. The brute then struck her a violent blow on the neck. She was taken to her home, and was con fined to her bed until her death. A post mortem by Dr. Cusbman showed that the; immediate cause of her death' was cerebrospinal Imeningitus, but lie was unable to isay that it was caused by vio Ience. Gordon, who has been in custody since the occurrence, will be detained to await the action of Coroner Schirmer. 1 ' ," y ' ,' THCommfssiotier of Internal Rev enue decided that tobacco arriving in collection districts under transportation bona since Wane 6, for which warehous ing bends has not been given, may be returned, to the factory and the bond be cancelled, or held by the Collector on the transportation bond until July 1, and said bond be cancelled by the payment of the? tax of zU cents,- by stamps imme diately affixed and cancelled.

In every geological epoch in mundane history, this ferocious fish nppeirs to have existed. Although the bones are soft and cartilaginous, the teeth are almost indestructible. Some of the fossil specimens, nearly a pound in weight, found at Gay head in Massachusetts, and in the marl pits of New Jersey, besides' hundreds of other places on all the con tinents, prove their wide distribution at the earliest geological periods and their importance in the limitation of aquatio races. Modern sharks appear to fall far short of the gigantic proportions of their antediluvian ancestors. If the fossil teeth of museums bear a definite relation to other parts of the body to which they belonged, as they now do in the living representatives of different species, some old world sharks must have been full one hundred feet long. With jaws thickly studded with cutting instruments it was mere sport for them to cut ichthyosaurus into inch pieces, and they had jaws from three to . six feet in length, terrible enough to graplo " with the marine anaks then rovng through disturbed waters in quest of prey. So necessary are sharks in the economy of nature, they still in habit every zone. Solitary and alone they range from pole to pole, sanguinary bandits of the element in whioh they fearlessly swim, slaughtering and devour ing every creature they can master. They seize with equal avidity putrescent garbage and-swallow, a fetid carcase with a gusto. Their function is recognized by naturalists in their proclivities and characteristic acts. They prevent the too rapid increase or multiplication of other aquatio beings. To that end their diges tion is rapid, the solvent properties of fluid secreted in their stomach are re sistless, and consequently, being always hungry, they are perpetually slaying and eating. Dreaded as they are by man, if they were suddenly annihilated, melan choly consequences would ensue, they might peril all life in sea and on shore. Races now kept down would increase to the danger of each other. Their decay ing bodies would poison the waters of the clobe. Putrescent.exhalations would taint the atmosphere of the whole world. Sharks, therefore, are necessary in the economy of organized life, since its per petuity essentially depends on vital air. They are constantly on duty as universal marine scavengers, holding tne Daiance of power between life and death. It is the province of science ta study losses that are permanent in nature. No one of them is more firmlv established or better understood than this viz., eat or be eaten ! What a Woman Pulled out op a VALISE. Funny things sometimes occur in the rooms of a photographer, as well as serious ones, and perhaps one of the most seno-comio incidents that ever took place in a picture gallery, was that which happened in the parlor of a prominent photographer in Cleveland, O., a few days since. A lady, evidently from the country, breathing hard, as if from se vere exercise and carrying a large-sized carpet sack of the old fashioned kind, entered the artist's rooms as suddenly as if propelled from behind, and carelessly throwing her carpet-covered valise into one corner, began to inspect the differ ent specimens of pictures in the show cases and upon the walls. After half an hour spent in this manner, she approach ed one of the attaches of the shop and asked to see the different styles of chil dren's pictures. These she closely ex amined and finally selected a certain pic ture of an infant, and inquired of the artist what he charged for taking a pict ure like that. ; The price was named, and she remarked that it was satisfac tory, and said she would have one taken ike that. "Where's the child? asked the photographer. "Here it is," replied the woman, and stepping ever to the corner of the room where she had thrown her carpet-bag upon entering, she pick ed up the latter, opened its mouth, and from its cavernous depths brought up an infant that had been dead for twenty four hours at least. The lok of curi osity upon the artisu's face gave place to one of horror, but his customer was in dead earnest, and nothing remained for him but to perform his work, after which the woman stowed away the de ceased babe in her valise and departed. Protection fob Emigp-ants. At the last meeting of the Commissioners of Emnrration. held m .New lork city, a correspondence between Mr. Casserly, Superintendent of the board, and the Consul General of the German Empire, Dr. Rosing, relative to the adoption by the German Government of measures for the protection of German emigrants in the selling or exchanging of their money before embarkation and during the voy age. was laid before the Board. Mr. Casserly calls the attention of the Consul to the frauds practiced on emigrants when exchanging gold and silver coin for U.

' ".' A HoBitlBiiB Cbimb. Considerable excitement wai .'"occasioned in Henry street, Brooklyn, N. Y., by the screams of a young lady, upon the stoop of the dwelling, j with her hiMKis ana nice covered With blood. Several persons immediately; ran to her " assistance and carried her back into the house, and during the excitement lier fnlher slipped out and started up the street with a long bloody case-knife in his hand. It ap pears that a young physician named John W. Swectzer,- who has just gradu ated at the Long Island College Hospital and who boards at the above locatiuii has been for some time past paying attcn tions to Miss Elizabeth Tomuson, a voung. ladv eighteen vears of use, who also resides at No. 577 Homy 'treo.t. William. J. Tomilson, her father, forbade her receiving the attentions of the young doctor, . , one persisted in ana aomg so he, therefore, became greatly exaspcr ated. - ."Last night he went into the base ment, sbarrpened up a case-knife, walked up to the reception-room, where she was performing on the piano, and without a word of Warning, made an assault on her with tho knife. He stabbed her upon the head, over the loft eye, on tho cheek, and in warding off the blows, her arms were badly cut Some of the wounds are considered of a dangerous character. Tomilson was chased for several blocks and finally arrested and locked up in the Third Precinct station-house to answer. Our future is always before us. The past is fixed. No tears can wash away its facts. Let ui waste no vain regrets upon it; but from the wisdom its uiistakesuid sins have bequeathed us, start afresh on the race. 1 hough yesterday we were weak, selfish, indolent, let us to-day at thiB moment begin to be strong, brave, hopeful, justT considerate, generous, ten der, trnthlu1, pure, patient and forgiving, "Now" is a glorious word. "Hence forth " is always within; Qur grasp, Open Window at Night. , Very much has been written on this subject, and written unwisely; the facts are that whosoever sleeps uncomfortably cool will get sick. To hoist a window sky-high when the mercury is at zero is an absurdity. Ihe colder a sleeping apartment is. the more unhealthy does it become, because cold condenses the carbonic acid formed by the breathing of "the sleeper. It set tles near the floor and is rebreathed, and if in a very condensed form, he will die before the morning. Hence we must be governed by circumstances. The hrst thing is, yon must be comfortably warm during sleep otherwise you are not refreshed, and inflamation of the lungs may be engendered, and life de stroyed within a few days. An open door and an open fire-place are sufficient for ordinary purposes in very cold weather, when outer win dows are opened, it is well to have them down at the top two or three inches, and up at the bottom the same space. In miasmatic localities and these are along water-courses, beside millponds, marshes, bayous, river bottoms, flat lands, and the like it is most important, irom the hrst of August until several severe frosts have been noticed, to sleep with all external doors and windows closed, because the cool air of sunset causes the condensation of poisonous emanations which were caused by the heat of the noonday sun to rise far above the earth; this condensation makes the air "heavy" at sundown, made heavy by the greater solidification of the em anations by cold; and resting on the sur face of the earth in their more concen trated malignant form, they are breathed into the lungs and swallowed into the stomach, corrupting and poisoning the blood with great rapidity. xsy daylight, these condensations- are made so compact by the protracted cool ness of the night, that they are too near the surface of the earth to be breathed into the system; but -as the sun begins to ascend, these heavy condensations, miasms begin to rise again to the height of several feet above the ground and are freely taken into the system by every breath and swallow; hence the hours of sunrise and sunset are the most unhealth ful of all the hours of the twenty-four ia the localities named; and noontide, when the sun is hottest, is the most healthful portion of the day, because the miasm is so much more rarefied that it ascends rapidly to the upper regions.: , V? , r Ihe general lessons are: Avoid expos ure to the out-door air in miasmatic lo calities for the hours including sunrise and sunset. 2d. Have a blazing fire on the hearth of the family room at those hours, to rarefy and send the miasm up wards. 3d. Take breakfast before going out of doors in the morning, and take tea before sundown; then being out af ter night is not injurious. HalVs Jour nal. A Teemagant. It is but a few weeks since A. M. Holbrook, one of the editors of the New Orleans Picayune, was married to " Pearl Rivers." The other day, as Mrst Holbrook was at her toilette, she turned round and was confronted by a well-dressed woman, who immediately fired upon her with a pistol. After a second shot Mrs. Holbrook seized the weapon, and the two women struggled for some seconds upon the floor, when the assailant picked up a bottle of bav rum and shattered it into a hundred frag ments over the head of her victim. Then she continued the attack with a cblna vase, and the servants having all depart ed, the infuriated female had the house all to herself, which she soon made the scene of confusion and ruin by smashing the elegant crockery and all the finest furniture. Some time afterwards a po liceman arrived and effected a stay of proceedings, takijpr her to the station house, where Mr? Jlolbrook soon came and entered a complaint again t her of assault with intent to kill. She proved to be his divorc.edvpe, Jennie Bronson, one f the facij&fang, tigerish style of women of tueau Fair stamp, who, by representing '-herfelf a prominent at torney's daughter,' had married Mr. Hol brook when he really supposed she was in a dying condition. She got well, however, and has lived to make him a good deal of trouble. Little Boy "I don't like you, Mr. Brown; my maifima says you are a regu lar sneak." M&nma '.'Good gracious, James, what can induce you to tell such a story? I confess to saying, 'What a pity such a noble-hearted man as Mr. Brown has turned out such a regular cynic.' " . Editorial Opinions. An advertise ment is, as a general rule, an elaborate culogium on the merits of something which the advertiser desires to sell. The editors and publishers of the paper in which it appears are not responsible for its statements : Sometimes, however, highly important discoveries or inven tions, announced to the World through the business departments of the press, seem to demand a few words of editorial com mendation. We have no hesitation n saying that the excellent medicine intro duced by Dr. Joseph Walker, of Califor nia: under the name of Vinegar Bitters, belongs to this category, and has a just claim to a favorable notice. I here can be no doubt as to its utility as a tonic, stomachic and alterative. We are cog nizant of many instances in which it has cured cases of chronic dyspepsia, supposed to be incurable, and know that the esti mation in which it is held as a remedy for bilious and nervous disorders, inter mittent and remittent fevers, rheumatism and general debility, is founded on experi ence and well deserved, ihe testimony of " a oloud of witnesses " goes to show that it is eminently useful ia a large ma jority of the disorders to which the human family are subiect. The tact that it con tains no alcohol commends it to the conti dence of that large and increasing class of the.coinmunity who insi6t that allTBpintu ous stimulants are active poisons. -Com.
