NORTHERN OHIO JOURNAL.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, 1873". J11ES E. CHASBERS, Editor. COlIOUiAL PABA6BAPM. The only tiling indited by a recent CbicHgo grand jury was an epistle to th Court, declining to find any bills at all, on act-omit !' the imoe'cility of pent Jtuieauil the pardoning proclivities tae, Governor. "' A Vo:imtrai'y, icei;ui2 now a Chi- cagoan narrow 1..- eKMpt-cl be'ng buried alive, sayg, in all soberness, that just as ummmHimm mm 4 rm into Ihn tuutxe, stifled groan told the startled spectators that "the corpse was not, ueaut - It is a singular ciruiiinstauee' that the '-deepest snows of this winter are all at the east of the Mississippi valley; while .last winter the heavy snows were west 'dwird of the great valley. This winter the railway trains on tlie Central Pauifie roatl are luiniing unimpeded; last win ter tliey were under snow blockades for more than half the winter. Now the ' ' trains ou the Eastern roads are block ' ' aded. ' The clerk of the weather has cu rious freaks and frolics in this great country. We hope when civil' service reform comes into, full- operation eom ; cetitive examinations may enable the country to get a more reliable com mis sioner in that department; one that won't gQ.off on such terrible busts. Frottde. the Historian, is running a gauntlet in America,and blows fall upon hjm thick, and fast, and hard, and from numerous sources. Phillips has pelted him- with rocks from the humanitarian 'magazine. Farther Burke lias mauled ', nim with the Jrish-Catholic shelala. And now comes John Mitchell to wallop him with the Irish-Protestant gad. The lat ''ler assailant has just appeared in the arena, and denounces Froude ns a fraud ; declaring that he bears false witness against his neighbors 'iii Ireland ; pro claiming that in support of his state ' ment about the Irish revolution Froude cites false and fraudulent historical doc "uinents, long kiiown to be such. Among those documents were the "fo'rty folio . depositions," which Froude had quoted as if of Undoubted veracity, stating that r in the massacre of 1641, full 154,000 Pro testants had been slaughtered in Ulster 'iilone: when, as Mitchell shows, all UU ster did not contain more man zu,uuo Protestants.' Iu this manner ".Mitchell ' on Fronde" becomes even more interest- - ing-than the essays of Burke and Phil lips on the unfortunate subject. Doubt less Froude will return to England with the conviction lurking in bis mind that .America is a hard road to travel.. FOH TFE COMING YEAR. -In tho prospectus Issued last October, the Publishers of the Journal an nounced-that .. they had many im provemeuts and iiew attractions in con- , teruplation, but at that time were una- ' ble to "do more than make a general promise In regard to' them, w ith this, -. the first issue of the new 3ear, ho we ver, " ' they' are able . to make the following v : definite announcements as to the attrac tions to be provided for the patrons of ' the JoURNALduringthe year i873.: And """as an earnest of their endeavors to make the Journal the bpst Family. Paper in the State the Publishers call' particular atttention to the fact that while this pa- ; ': per has always presented a greater niim- ; ber of valuable aud interesting depart ments and a larger list of - contributors than any other paper in the vicinity yet that in the future the one will be - materially improved and the other large ly increased. During the coining twelvemonth the ' Agricultural Department will be under the control and supervision of M. B. ; Bateham, whose services have been se cured, hot merely as a contributor, but as the regular editor of this department, , Jilr. Bateham is too' .well known to all , v not only as an able and vigorous writer, but as a practical Horticulturist and Ag ; rlculturist, to need other assurance that '; "under "his management this Department , will . become one of the most valuable ' and interesting iu the paper. As the founder and Editorof the OhioCultivator, ' ntld' ns a regular contributor, for many ' ""years to .the Ohio Farmer, Mr. Bateham . .has become widely known for his thor ough knowledge and apt contributions upon agricultural subjects, and in thus "" securing his services the Publishers feel " ' it no less a matter of congratulation to themselves than to their patrons. The "Religious News" which has here tofore been rather a ' compilation than " an 'Originally edited Department will "also .be materially improved, and en , : larged during the coming year,-under : the management and editorship of the Rev. T. R. Peters an able writer and one whose "sympathy with every labor ing christian will make the Department v.. oue of interest to every denomination. The column, as heretofore, will be open ' to all reports , announcements and in formation which are of general interest, and in assuming control of this Depart ment, Mr. : Peters earnestly, desires the co-operation of alt workers in whatever church they may be. ' "' "': . ' ' The Department of "Practical Hints"' ,, w ill, be also somewhat changed and will be edited by Mrs. J.. G.

With' the Isc of January the Spiritu alists will begin the publication of a quarterly journal which has a title as long as a preface. The most material part of it if indeed to anything belong ing to a Spiritualist publication can be applied that epithet is liiittain'a Jour nal of Spiritual science, Literature, Art, and Inspiration. The editor's motto is: The trumpets of the angels are the voices ot the reformers." we nave heard all kinds of epithets opposite and the reverse applied to trumpets, and .we have heard the existence of angels de nied and their calling laughed at, but to make trumpets voices, and angels' trumpets reformers' voices is a stroke of original humor which belongs solely to S. B. Biittain, M. D., and should be patented. Among the new exchanges that come to us with the opening year i3 the ' Amer ican Journal of Education published by A. H. Andrews & Co., of Chieago, and from the brief examination which we have been able to give the number be fore us, we are sure our teachers and Tscliool officers will find it an indispens able aid to them in their work, as it dis cusses fill phases of the snbject of Edu cation, and contains numerous and val uable plans and suggestions for build ing school houses.

At Mechanicsburg, Sunday evening, a coioreu woman nameu tsowson, in fit of rage or insanity, cut the throat of her child, anu then cut. her own throat, Both will probably die. Cruelty of the nusoanu is toe alleged cause. . The annual report of the Trustees and Superintendent of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home at Xenia. was sent to the Governor to-day showing the folio iving facts and figures: Last ses sion the lieneral Assembly appropriated $129,900 for the uses of the Home; of this amount $87,278 remains unexpend ed ; the six cottages authorized have been erected during the year, and gas works put up; the appropriation for piazzas for (cottages was too small, so that nothing was done in this direction ; the claims for the orphans collected at N.erua he! ore the House was established have been paid. Great fault is found with contractors for not pushing work in their various departments, on aiew structures, for thus many children are deprived of the comforts ot the home. The report of the Superintendant shows that during the past vear 128 bovs and 60 girls were admitted, making a .total In the home during the year ot 44U;only one death occurred; ten were honora bly discharged, two as incorrigible, one was sent to the Reform School, eight were taken home by their mothers, and four were dropped from the rolls not PJiaving returned Jrom furlough, and nine ran away. On October 1st. 402 children remained in the home; of chil dren admitted during the yeary 18 are orphans, Ju2 nave no lathers ; the lathers ol !;; uiecl in nattle or lrom wounds. aud one hundred and eleven from: dis ease or from wounds contracted in the service. The health of the children has been good, about all sickness being fe vers contracted before coming . to the Home. Since last year a new bakery has been put up, which bakes from two to three hundred loaves of bread daily, besides cakes, and they need very much a new laundry building, which would cost nine thousand dollars. The school rooms are now ready to accommodate tour hundred and htty, but it is soon expected to have six hundred children, and shall be obliged to use a cottage for school rooms. - The Message of Governor Noves is a plain business-like document, present ing some ot the leading tacts in the af fairs of the State and making such brief suggestions to tne lieneral Assembly as seemed to him desirable. After refer ring in a general way to the peace and prosperity enjoyed by the State during the year he gives an. abstract of the Auditor's report on the State finances, showing a reduction of the State Debt during the year of $439,175, leaving -the reducible dofct outstanding $8,633,546. The local indebtedness more than doub les tiiis,.being $17,590,548, and when to this is added the irreducible . debt, $4, 923,475, the total indebtedness amounts to. $30,197,569, This does not include the debts Incurred under the Boesel law, which the Governor says has -already added nearly four millions to the local indebtedness, aud in this amount he does not include the one and a quarter million voted by Cincinnati last Satur day. The taxes levied in 1872, for col lection in 1873t amounted to $23,810, 971.97. being, an increase over .the pre ceding year of JI3,l5d7;73 The Gover nor again calls'attentfon to the growing evil of local indebtedness an4 refers to the almost, if not quite, unlimited power to pile up debt given to counties, town ships, cities, and villages by the Boesel law and the construction placed on the Constitution by the Supreme Court. He suggests .consideration of the pro priety of taking. away this debt creating jwwer instead of jndefiiiitely . extending The same matter is again touahei, on in .this statement of the. railroad pro gress of the State, caution against un wise and unnecessary expenditure for railroad building being given. Atten tion, is also directed to the statements! of the State Cominlssioiier of Rah'oads con cerning the defective condition of alarge proportion of railroad bridgesanct trestle work in the State. T. , , it A codification and revision of the School Laws of the State is recommended and especial attention called to the sub jects of normal instruction, .county su per.witeiidenc.y, and township organiza tion us a modification of the district sys tem. , In connection with the subject of normal schools Governor Xoyes refers to, the lying condition of tha Ohio and Miami Universities at Athei'is und Ox ford, and the. necessity of State aid to save theiji fropi extinction.' He suggests the policy of coinbiriiug tl(e resources of the two, changing one of theui to a State Normal School, supported wholly by the State, The Agricultural College Im reported in a satisfactory condition, and be-fpre Joiig will be ready ..for occupa tion, but it will iieed (l)e fostering care of the State for ,souio years to coino. The unfortunate condition of the in sane asylums, owing to the ravages of fire, and the pressing' demands for In creased accommodation, is urgpd on.' the attcntioi) of the legislators,' A change iu the law under wl)ieh con tracts arc made for the erection of pub-r lie .buildings is suggested, so that tho work mnv be facilitated withoutdainage to the public interest. Improved venti lation of the cells'in the Ohio Penitenti ary is considered necessary, and the erection of additional buildings for this purpose recommended. The number of pardons granted for the present yenc s given ns twenty. ':! An important change in tho nliarueter of the criminal law of the State Is recoiii manded by the Governor; He suggests that the criminal law be so altered that the numberof grades of crime be in- creased and juries have power to find a verdict on any of those grades. The punishment of fach grade should be de termined," so that the jufy, in finding prisoner guilty or any graue ot qnme, ax the same time m enect nxes uis.punica ment. instead of leaving thesentenee'as t presento largely at the discretion 'of thejmijej inu is a euggesuon tnat wrll provoke cbnsiderabS' -discussion' whenever an attempt is made to carry it into legislati n. Before dismissing the subject of crime anil criminals the Gov-er-uor caXUauention ta the fact tha the number of convicts in the Penitentiary is less by one hundred than last year, and '.a;rtU;s , this decrease in a measure to the beneficial influence of the reform schools. e T3eological"Snrvey"ls"sald to be progressing satisfactorily, aud for the purpose of properly completing the work an exteusihu ol-ttuie out year and an additiouai appropriation are recom mended. The generaTAsseiTibTy is asked. to co- operate with the National Government in makiug the necessary preparations for the . centennial celebration. A change in the law governing the listing ot property is , recommended, so tnat some ot the property escaping taxation under the preseut defective method may be made to bear its due proportion of the public burdens, it is suggested tnat merchants and manufacturers may be taxed on their sales instead of on the monthly average of merchandize owned and held by them and tM a greater portion of capital employed iu banking should iu some way be brought upon the duplicate. A relaxation of some of the stringent restrictions on insurance companies is recommended as proper and safe: Further legislation for the protection of the health and lives of mi ners is suggested, and the Governor ends the suggestions of his message by a proper recommendation that provision be made for the families of those per sons who lost their lives, or were in jured, during their efforts to save life and property at the burning ot the .N ew- nurgn lunatic Asylum. DISTRICT OK COLUMBIA. Commisioner Walker's resignation is accepted, to take effeet February 1st, not January 1st, the date for which it was tendered. - ' No appointment of Indian- Commis sioner is expected till after the return of Secretary Delano from Cuba. Advices received from Delano state that he has not yet left New Orleans for Cuba, contrary to previous report. It is now understood that the Presi dent does hot oppose sending the Con gressional Committee to Arkansas. It is, therefore, possible that Rice's resolu tion may be more favorably considered upon the reassembling or tne senate. Edward Cowlee, managing editor of the Cleveland Leader and brother of Al fred Cowles of the Chicago Trihune, -is a candidate for a consulship, and is vigor ously importuning Parsons, member elect from the Cleveland district, to se- sure it. The proposed abolition of the Elector al College system is much discussed, and since Greeley's death is likely soon to receive definite shape through the ex pected speech of Senator Morton, favor ing a constitutional amendment to abol ish the College. ' Advices from New Orleans are that the excitement has nearly subsided, and the people generally acquiescing. Prom inent officials here have remarked that but for the newspapers it would not be known in administration quarters that there ' was any wide-spread dissatisfac tion. The statement that Attorney Gen eral Williams will voluntarily retire from the Cabinet, is groundless. The President on Tuesday signed the bill to reduce the expenses and officers of the International RevenueBureaa which uassed Congress a few days ago, and the work of putting the new law into operation will be commenced immedi ately. There are about seventeen diner- .ent kinds of stamps to be prepared be fore the new law goes into effect. Work on them will be- commenced without delay. In the case of Alexander A. Semmes, United States navy, tried in January last for inflicting cruel and unlawful punishment upon persons under his command, for abuse of his official sow ers, and for oppressive and inhuman conduct unbecoming an officer and, a gentleman while lie was in command ot the United States steamer Portsmouth, and found guilty and sentenced to be suspended from duty and rank for three years, and to be reprimanded by the Secretary of the Navy, the Presideut has remitted that portion of the sentence which suspended hint from rank and duty and he will be ordered to duty by the Department. The severe reprimand which he received, however, by ttie Secretary at the time, stands on record, it being announced therein that if the sentence of the Court had been severer the Department would have not failed to approve it. 1 UTAH. At about half-past two Wednesday af ternoon, an avalanche six hundred feet wide and twelve deep came down, cross ing the stage road, carrying away from eight to ten teams and teamsters, and taking them one thousand five hundred feet across Cottonwood creek. Three teamsters have been shoveled out alive. but badly bruised. Four more are known- to be buried and not rescued, and it is thought impossible to find them before spring, although one to two hun dred men are at work shoveling. All the trains in the line of the avalanche swept away. The names of the men are not yet ascertained. Eight mules have been dug out, some dead, some with their legs broken and- others severely bruised. Several were afterwards shot. California. The rain storm has been heavy throughout the western coast. Tlie San Joaquin is threatening to overflow. Sev eral bridges on the J(nba rrver are swept away, and five immense land slides have occurred in Oregon on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad.

The Phoenix men have erected a barricade on the ground and made other preparations to hold it against Raymond and Ely. Last night, ! while Thomas Ryan, a Phoenix .workmen, was overlooking tlie barri cade, one of. i the Raymond-Ely men shot him through, the head killing him instantly.- About forty sliots-were thereupon exchanged by "the parties without serious results" -The Phoejiix men held their ground.

Fire Marshal McSpedon says, in re gard to -the burning of Barmiin's muse um, that the fire' originated under the floor immediately over the' boiler", and from superheated steam, which,-in its effects, Is as destructive as burning gas or flame, and where it is allowpd pi gnfu strength is sure to bo productive of the most terrible result.

Jdis covered lhat, immediately adjoining the on Iv staircase ot the buildiug was a large elevator, that served during the fire as a flue to convey-the flames to the floors above. If this trap had been constructed for the purpose and fitted at the founda tion with enormous bellows, it could not have more effectually performed its ter mite worn ot destruction. In this build ing there was but one staircase, aud I have no other term to use for it but the infernal machine." The elevator was placed close to it, so that, when the flames canght one the other was attacked aud almost as quirk as lightning, all chance of escane was cut off from the Fpeople above, i The Are escapes,' orjthe complicated machinery meant to be es caDes. fitted unoii the outride of the tmilding. were simply man-traps, entire ty inadequate for their intended pur pose, and in a most wretched condition. the burning omne public school No. a.

Austria. The Austrian, French and Prussian newspapers are engaged in a lively con troversy over the discovery made by Duke de Grammont in regard to the ori gin of the late war. Tlie Duke brings documentary evidence to support the truth of his assertion that Austria prom ised to help t rance m case or war With Prussia. He publishes the Austrian dis- pateli to the rrencli Government, in which a pledge is given in the following words: "lour camse is ours we will contribute to the success of the French arms."

Eighteen of the crew are still on the way down, having been left eight miles from Bruce mines. - Zanzibar A Herald special -from Zanzibar Dee. 18th, via London, Dec. 30th, says: The United States steamer Yantic, arrived on tlie 10th. Captain Wilson, with Uni ted States Consul Jahn J. AV'ebb and tlie officers of the ship, visited the Sultan ou the 11th. They were received . by the troops and met by the Sultan in front of the palace. Captain Wilson represented to the Sultan the sentiments of the American people in regard to slavery, and requested the abrogation of tlie clause of the treaty with England. The Sultan's reply was received on the 17th. He says: "Thirty-three years ago I was forbidden by my father, Said Said, to export slaves to Muscat. The slaves now carried there are stolen by Arabs and tribes from -the Persian Gulf. I will make strong efforts in the future to prevent the kidnapping ot these slaves, I will make every effort." The Eng lish corvette Briton arrived here on the 12th and waits for Sir Bartle Frere. The Yantic also waits. Two other English vessels are expected here. France.

The Monarchists seek to make political capital or tne anair. The union pub lishes an address praising the Minister's act as a striking disavowal of a policy which would abandon the Holy Father to spoliation and insult. The mayors of several communes of France have refused to placard the speech of Du fan re, Minister of Justice. delivered in the National Assemblv- dur ing the debate two weeks ago on the pe-- tition tor a dissolution ot that body. Dufa'ure, in his remarks, spoke ironi cally of Gambetta, whose speeches, he said, were the cause of needless agita tions throughout the country, and the Assembly, by resolution, directed the placarding of the speech.

The Gazette also stigmatizes the Allocution of the Popo delivered in Rome on tlie 23d instant as aii unpardonable insult to the Emperor of Germauyi The colossal impudence of the Pope, says the ftazette proves the inevitable necessity for the immediate passage of a law defining tlie boundary between the -State and the Ro man Catholic Chufeh, After the first of January, persons entering Germany from -France will not be required to provide themselves with passports. :: The Spencer Schezeitung strongly op posses the decree of the Brunswick counsel of ministers issued 6th of rje ceiuber, providing that upon tle' demise of the present sovereign, who is unmar ried, Duke William I, the ex-King of Hanover, or hi son shall succeed to the throne. A liMKIPSE OF. "OOITI TOWS.i " The-whirl of tfie city is deadening to the external senses. How many, of us who ride or tramp down town in the morning through that corridor called Broadway, observe the details of its real life? A few show windows, monoton ous processions of people ou tlie side walks these are al ti!it we jiead. If perchance a horse falls to the pavenient his writhing? and nt a casual glance, and a staggering sot may provoke the sneer or the pity of passers-by. But t)ho veteran Yorker takes little' note of ordinary Incidents, and ho oiit-of-door life' of the streets is for'the most part a scaled book to him. Thero Jj a circle of metropolitan life, of which the IVorhl office is the geometrical centre,-which comprises, features so varied that they canuot be. classified, and whose more variety excuses the jumble iu which they are involved in the minds of rno( persons frequenting the neighborhood. If it were possible to describe this area with perfopf lUerftlnpss notljing could be more Interesting to a reader: men whose offices are situate within its boundary would dimly recollect that they bad'seeu it all but as "through a glass, darkly." The circle takes iii al most all the offices of the great newspa pers, daily and weekly, printed in the English, French, Spanish, and German languages, which interpret and pnr euade American public opinion. It en closes two o three of the oldest hotels, many of the most venerable mercantile houses, some of the most notable res taurants and drinking saloons, and the most extensive news and book-selling establishments in New York. The City Hall,, the new Ccurt-house, and the ris ing pile of tlie new Fostofflce stand within this circle, and in the Park which surrounds those huge edifices tlie dregs aud emptings of the human life that surges there all day settle on the seats that line the walks. The merry bootblack ldlters here at noon, wliist ling to "the's'parrows that hop over the grass, ground the edges of the Park huck'sters' naye set their stands, and at the feet of the statue of Franklin which fills the angle between tlie Tiines and Tribune offices, opposite, odd creatures eke out a precarious living. The arm less man who used to whittle a stick with his toes is gone; so is the blind girl who told the color of your eyes for a peuny; but some curious trade, honest or otherwise, is driven herealiouts every day. Tlie old-fashioned windows of the Tribune office glimmer down upon squads- of newsboys, whose snorts are varied on Saturdays by a scramble in the heap of paper-rags and other office refuse east into the Spruce street gutter. The delving of these imps their pale faces, sharp, eyes, monkey-like postures, and ridiculous garments would mag netize the pencil of Dore. A little way farther down Spruce street is a dirty -oyster cart, filled with bivalves iu the shell and presided over by a boy dis pensing "oysters at a cent a" piece." A swarm of of unhealthy youngsters clam or around this cart, eating oysters sauced with stale vinegar, out of broken lager-beer mugs. Nassau street, that mine of wealth to story-tellers, stretches near, kaleidoscopic m aspect and rat tling with noise. Here in the forenoon the late traveler, rising from his bed iu an upper chamber of the old Park Hotel, stares aghast into the windows on the opposing side of the thoroughfare, where a bevy of female compositors in a printing-office stand snickering at his nightgown. Here sellers of cheap books bawl themselves hoarser than the Lon don 'prentices of the last century, from morning till night. The photograph shops display voluptuous portraits of actresses aud ballet-girls; the picture stores are surrounded with throngs that force pedestrians outside the curbstones ; ale vaults draw thirsty citizens down into their easy vortices'; and the blind doors of liquor saloons swing inward to the touch of a little finger. On the site of the old Herald building, at the cor ner of Nassau and Fulton streets, a new iron structure begins to rise. Ful ton street is a chaos of omnibuses and trucks, clothing stores and chestnut stands, men's furnishing goods houses and-Alaska diamond stores, fruit stands, cries of watch chain venders, yells of peripatetic purchasers of old hats. There is more noise ou Fulton street, between Nassau street and Broadway, than there is in any other quarter of New York, and the noise is, most of it, impertinent and unnecessary.. A French restaurant stretches from Fulton to Aim street, with an entrance on each street. One who is 'so rash as to choose a table at the Fulton street end of the restaurant is stunned or disgusted bv tlie neighbor ing uproar, but he who wisely seats him self near the Ann street doorway will have his ears rasped by nothing much more dissonant than the minstrel's harp or the squeak cf a half-soaked sole in the hands of the jolly shoemaker. Ann street is nevertheless an avenue of iniqu ties; for here are the cellars some are now forsaken into the depths of which tlie police have made many a descent upon many an improper publication, letter aud pictorial. On tlie street cor ners in this vicinity the cynic may please himself late in the afternoon with the spectacle of spruce clerks standing in front of furnishing store windows and balancing the prices of certain neckties and other dandy goods therein against the remainder of their week's salary after the payment of their board-bills. An alley connects Ann with Beekman street hereabouts an alley which pre sents about mid day a singular specta cle. Loathsome waters trickle through this alley, which communicates on tne north with the back doors of mercantile houses fronting on Park row and on tlie soutli with the back doors of similar houses fronting on Nassau street. At noon a part of the alley's length is taken up by enormous trucks and almost equally enormous horses, the latter munching their oats iu nose-bags. The rest of the alley is devoted by tho em ployes of the American News Company and of adjacent houses to tho exhilirat ing game of base ball. Never was base ball so well played, because base ball was never successfully played under so many uunculties. To catch your ball or to bat it are legitimate points in the game of base ball ; but it is not ordinari ly required that the batman shall refrain from fracturing the window-glass of any one of fifty buildings which stretch only twenty feet apart on either side of the "range," The batsman who can hit his ball without smashing tlie windows is here the champion, and worthily so, because he would gain more heartfelt applause from the newsboys and boot blacks congregated on the gratings if he should batter in a dozen panes ot glass than the applause which he gets from his envious playmates for not cracking a tingle window. Beekman street is more "solid and substantial" to use a business phrase than Nassau. Its en trance is buttressed by the shields or signs of great newspaper offices, hnug on the corners fronting the City Hall Park.. Book-stalls line the west side of the first block ; the next blocks on either side of the street are a mixture of busi ness houses and saloons ; but finally the street stretches away down towards the East River in an-unbroken frontage of stately wholesale stores aud warehouses. Tlie block enclosed by Park row, Beek man and Nassau streets, and consisting of the Time and World buildings, is the most interesting and populous iu the city. The World building, in particular, contains an astonishing network of offices. -.The publication office of this journal occupies only a part of the first floor, beneath which and beneath the sidewalks encompassing which tlie pressrooms and folding-rooms and paper-rooms attached to the establishment of a great New York daily newspaper are hidden from view. In the upper stories of the building, however, a dozen weekly journals have their offices, and many literary and other agencies are located. Through tlie very highest win dows lights shine nightly from the edi tors', reporters' and compositors' rooips away up above the turmoil of the building and the town. It is in the night-time that tlie whole vicinity takes on its most grotesque and interesting as pects. Then Chatham street, .which leads from printing-house square to the Bowery, .is lurid with gas-light: and resonant with the chatter of a cosmopo litan set of low characters who can do anything but '-'cheat the Jews.'' The clothing shops are open; the jewelry stores glitter; saloons . resound with clinks' and laughter; and there comes up from subterranean doorways a guttcral gurgle of lager-beer. Singular shows advertise themselves by transparencies, as if confessing in advance that they are ('too thin." ou may have your pocket picked in a seoond-story keno shop or pick it yourself iu a basement for the benefit of an arrant knave, who styles himself the - "Sword : Swallower of Sumatra." . As the , evening wanes the shop-keepers put up their shutters, and the saloons have the pat-, ronage of the populaco to themselves. Stilllater the lights even in the saloons grow thinner, and only tlie- "all night" houses hold open tholr doors. These I houses arc numerous iu the Printing House square, and very good and bene ficent some of them are. They are not all liquor. houses; far from it. A few are coffee and oido saloons, so called, wjiere a tired printer, or an editor qr re porter for that matter, can at any hour of the night call for some simple morsel and refresh himself wit hal. One of these humble but useful establishments, which occupies no more space than that of u basement ot 25x40 feet, , had yielded some years ago a large fortune to its qrlg-: inal owner,, who retired, leaving the business-to his soiu The latter seems to have inherited his father's industry aud sobriety, for, although he is reputed to be rich' enough already to abandon busl pess, ie sticks tq hs shop night after night, carying corped bepf and pouring hot cofl'ee with tho politest assiduity. One may eat 4 quarter of , an apple p'le nnd drink a cup of coffee no bad lunch at the hungry hour of midnight for a dime! After coffee a seat iu the open park across the way is marvellously in viting to a meditative man : and, loung ing there u ruler the stars aud in sight of the staring lights of the printing-offices before bim,ouehas a'chance'to dwell up on the vigor and the might of that tre mendous agency which literally rocks' the pavement under his feet t he mod ern newspaper press. DOST SCATTER VOIR FORCES Every beginner in life, therefore, should try early to ascertain the strong faculty of his mind or body, fitting him for some special pursuit, and direct his utmost energies to bring it to perfection. A man, says Emerson, is like a'bit or Labrador spar, which lias no lustre as vou turn it in your hand, until yoacome to a particnlar angle, then it shows deep and beautilnl colors. There is no adap tation or universal applicability in men, but each lias liis special talent, and the mastery of successful men consists in adroitly keeping themselves where and when that turn shall need oftenest to be practiced. Tlie successful man in every calling whether literary, scientific or business, is lie: who is totvs in illn who can say with Paul, "This one thing 1 do." With tlie exception of a few great creative minds, the men whose names are historic are identified with some one achievement, upon which all their life force is spent. You think of Watt, and instantly the steam engine is suggested; of Arkwright" and the spinning-jenny whirls before you : of Davy, and the safety lamp lights up the mine ; of Harvey and the blood courses the more quickly in your veins; of .Tenner, and you see disease stayed in its progress "by tho pricking of a lancet: of Morse and the electric spark is seen darting from con tinent to continent, ready, like Puck, to "put a girdle around the earth in forty minutes." Whatever 1 have tried to do in mv life, said -harles Dickens,' I have tried with all my heart to do well. What I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely. Never to put one hand to anything on which I would throw my whole self, and never to affect depreciation ot my work, whatever it was, I find now to have been golden ruies. A man may have talents, but if they the most dazzling are scattered upon many object's, be will accomplish noth ing. Sir Joshua Reynolds used to say that a painter should sew up his mouth"; that is, lie must not shine as a talker, if lie would excel iu his art. Strength is like gunpowder to be effectual, it needs concentration aud aim. The marksman who aims at the whole target will seldom hit tne centre. The literary man or philosopher may revel among the most beautiful flowers of thought, but unless he gathers and condenses the sweets In the honeycomb of some great thought or work, his finest conceptions will be lost or useless. When Michael Angolo was asiced why he did not marry, lie re plied , "Painting is my wife, and my works are my.chiidren." "Mr A often laughs at me, " said a learned American chemist, '"because 1 have but one idea He talks about every tiling, aims to excel in many things; but I have learned that if I wish ever to make a breach, I must piay my guns continually uqon one point. " His gunnery- was successful. Beginning life as obscure schoolmaster, anq pouring over Minman's Journal by the light of a pine-knot in a log cabin. he was ere long performing experinTents in electro-magnetism to English earls, and has since been at the head of one of the chief scientific institutions of his country.
