THE BATTLE OF SEMPACH. of bu as he has to on tor op. of to No " for all, .,, Nothing in history has been more remark able than the union of the cantons and cities of the little republic of Switzerland. Of differing races, languages, and latterly, ev en religions, unlike in habits, tastes, opin ions, and costumes, they have, however, been held together, as it were, by pressure from without, and one spirit of patriotism has kept the little mountain republic com plete for fire hundred years. Originally the lands were fiefs of the Ho ly Roman Empire, . the city municipalities owning the Emperor for their lord; and the great family of Hapeburg, in whom the Ein-pi-e' became at length hereditary, was in re ality Swiss, tbe county that gave them title lying In the canton of Aurgau. Rodolf of Hapeburg was elected leader of the burghers of Zurich; lbsg before he was chosen to the Empire; and he confined a Swiss in heart, retaining his mountaineer's open simplicity and honesty to tbe end of his life. Privil eges were gi anted by lain to the cities and tbe nobles, and the country was loyal and prosperous in his reign. - His son Albert, the same who has slain by his nephew ' Johann, as before mentioned, pel mi t ted those tyrannies of bis bailiffs which goaded the Swiss to their celebrated revolt, and commenced tho long series of wars withihe House of Hapsburg; or, as it was now termed,' of -Austria; which finally established their Independence. '. On the one side, - the Dukes of Austria and their ponderous German chivalry, want ed to reduce .the cantons and cUie to vas salage, not to U e Imperial Crown, a distant and scarcely felt obligation. but to the Duchy of Austria; on the "other, the hardy moun tain peasants, and stout burghers well knew their true position, and were aware that to admit the' Austrian usurpation would expose tholf young men to be drawn upon for the rhike's." wan. cause -'their property to be subject to perpetual rapacions exactions, and fill their hills with castles for ducal bailiffs, who would be little better than licensed rob bers. No wonder, then, that the generation of William Tell and Arnold Mclchthal be oueathed a resolute purpose of resistance to their descendants. It was in 1397, ninety years since the first assertion of Swiss independence, when Leo pold Handsome, Duke of Austria, a bold but misproud and violent prince, involved him self in one of the constant quarrels with the Swiss that were always arising on account of the insulting exactions of toll and tribute in the Austrian lordcr cities. A sharp war broke out, and the Swiss city of Lucerne took the opportunity of destroying the Aus trian castle of Rotheinburg, where the tolls had been particularly vexatious, and of ad mitting to their league the cities of Sempach and Ricbensce. Leopold and all the neighboring nobles united then forces. ' Ilivtred and contempt of the Swiss, as low-born and presumptuous spurred them on; and twenty messengers reached the Duke in one day, with promis es of support, In his march against Sempach and Lucerne. He bad seat a huge force in the direction of Zurich with Johann Bonstetton, and advanced himself with 4,000 horse and 1,40) foot upon Sempach. Zu rich undertook its own defence, and the Forest Cantons sent their brave peasants to the support of Lucerne and Sempach, but only to the number of 1,300, who, on the 9 th of Julr. took post in the woods around the little lake of Sempach. Meanwhile, Leopold's troops rode round the walls of the little city.insulting the inhabitants; one hold ing up a halter, which he said was for the chief magistrate; and another, pointing to the reckless waste that his comrades were perpetrating on the fields, shouted, "Send breakfast to the reapers.'' The burgomas ter pointed to the woods where his allies lay hid and answered, "iiy masters of Lucerne and their friends will bring it." The story of that day was told by one tbe burghers who" fought in the ranks Lucerne, a shoemaker, named Albert Tchu di, who was both a brave warrior and . master-singer, and as bis ballad was trans-" laled by another master-singer, Sir Walter Scott, and Is tbe spirited record of an eye witness, we will auote from bim some his descriptions of the battle and its golden deed. The. Duke's, wiser friends proposed to wait till he could be joined by Bonstetten and troons who had cone towards Zurich, the Baron von Haseuberg (u e. hare-rock) strongly urged this prudent counsel; but " 'O Hare-Castle, thou heart of hare !' . Fierce Oxcnstitjrn he cried, . 'Shalt see then how the game will fare,' The taunted knight replied." This very noon," said the younger knicht to the Duke, ."we will deliver lip you this handful of villains. "And thus they to eacn other said, Yon handful down to hew Will be no boastful tale to tell, The peasants are so few. Characteristically enough, the doughty cobbler describes how the first execution j that took place was the lopping off the long peaked toes of the boots that the gentlemen wore chained to their knees, and which wo'd have impeded them on foot; since it had been decided that the horses were too much tired to be serviceable in the action. "There was lacing then of helmets bright, And closing ranks amain, Tbe peaks they hewed from their boot points Might wellnigh load a wain." They were drawn up in a solid compact both,' presenting an unbroken line of spears projecting beyond the wall of gay shields and KilUhed Impenetrable armor. Tuft Swiss were not only few in number, l ut Hu.r was scarce among them; some had only boards fastened on their arms by way of shields, some bad halbcrts, which had been used by their fathers at tbe battle of Morgarten, others two-handed swords and battle axes. They drew themselves up in form of a wedge, and "The gallant Swiss confederates then They prayed to God aloud, And He displayed His rainbow fair, Against a swarthy cloud." Then they rushed upon the serried spears, but in vain. "The game was nothing sweet." The banner of Lucerne was in the utmost danger, the Lantlamman was slain, and six ty of his men, and not an Austrian had been wounded. The flanks of the Austrian host began to advance so as to enclose the Email peasant force, and Involve it in irremediable destruction. A moment of dismay and still ness ensued. Then Arnold von Wlnkelried of unterwalden, with an eagle glance saw the only means of saving his country, and, withthe decision of a man who dares by dyiug to do all things, shouted aloud: "I will open a passage. ' " 'I have a virtuous wife at home, A wife and infant son: . I leave them to my country's care, The field shall yet be won t He rushed against the Austrian-band In desperate career, And with bis body, breast and hand, Bore down each hostile spear; Four lances splintered on his crest, Six shivered in bis' side, Still on the serried files he pressed. He broke their ranks and died !" The very weight of the desperate charge of this self -devoted man opened a breach in the line of spears. In rushed the Swiss wedge, and the weight of the nobles' armor and length of their spears was only encumb ering. They began to fall before the Swiss blows, and Duke Leopold was urged to fly. "I had rather die honotably than live with dishonor," he said. He saw his standard bearer struck to the ground, and seizing his banner from his hand, waved it over his head, aud threw himself among the thickest of the foe. His corpse was found amid a heap of slain, and no less than 2,000 of bis companions perished with him, of whom a third are said to have been counts, barons, and knights. Then lost was banner, spear, and shield At Sempach In the flight; The cloister vaults at Konigsfeldt Hold many an Austrian knight " The Swiss only lost 200; but as they were spent with the excessive heat of the July sun, they did not pursue their enemies. They gave thanks on the battle-field to the God "f Y'Wi.ries, and the next day buried the dt !, carrying Duke Leopold and twen ty-seven of his most illustrious companions to th Abbey of Konigsfeldt, where they buried him in the old tomb of bis forefath ers, the lords of Aargau, who had been laid there in the good old times, hef ore the house of Hapsbunr had crown arrogant with suc cess. As to the niaster-Bineer. he tells us of himself that "A merry man was he, I wot, The night he made the lay, Returning from the bloody spot Where God had judged the. day." On every 9th of July subsequently; the people of the country have been wont to as semble on the battle-field, around four stone crosses which mark the spot. A priest from a pulpit hi the open air gives a thanksgiving sermon on the victory that Insured the free dom of Switzerland, and another reads tbe narrative of the battle, and tbe roll of the 500, who, after Wiukelried's example, gave their lives in the cause. All this is in the cause. All this is in the face of the moun tains and the bike now lying in summer stillness, and the harvest fields whose crops are secure frt.ni marauders, and the congre gation then proceed to the small chapel, the D X walls of which arc painted with the deed of . . . . . ..I Arnold von Winkclried, and the other dis tinguished achievements of the confederates and masses are sung for the souls of those who were slain.

Court Miscellaneous. GEORGE H. PENDLETON. His Public Career. [From the Cincinnati Enquirer.] I George H. Pendleton is a native of Cincinnati, and was bora in 1825, and is, consequently, in the forty-second year of his age. Ilia grandfather. Nathaniel Pendleton, was a native of New York, and was the intimate per sonal and political friends of Alexan der Hamilton, and was his second ia the duel in which he lost his life.with Aaron Burr, in 1804. He was a revo lutionary officer, being aid-de-camp to General Greene in his glorious compaign in the South. He was the first Federal district judge in Georgia, and was appointed by President Washiagton. The father of George H. Pendleton was Nathaniel Greene Pendleton.who defeated Dr. Duncan for Congress in Hamilton county, in the celebrated contest of 1840. He was a leading & eminent Whig in politics. Descended from such ancestry, with his relations and acquaintances all on the anti- Deuiocratic side in politics, it would not have been surprising if George had imbibed the same views and po litical tenets. But he was one who thoucht for himself who was gov erned by no extraneous influence, and from mature conviction and study ho early embraced the Democratic creed, and cast his first vote with that or ganization. In this he evinced the aarae resolute independence nd in dividuality that has since, on all im portant occasions, governed his con duct. He entered Woodward College in Cincinnati, and afterward studied at two universities in Germany. He then commenced the studj- of law in Cincinnati, and upon his admission to the bar, formed a parlDerhip with Hon. George E. Pugh, since United States Senator from Ohio. In 1853, Mr. Pendleton commenced his political career by ati'epting the Democratic norrfination for the State Senate from Hamilton county. The nomination was made by the popular vote of the party, and he ol taiued within one hundred and filty votes of the total number cast. The whole Democratic ticket upon which he was placed was elected by about ten thou sand majority. Although the youn gest member of that body, and en tirely new to its service, htonce took a prominent position in its delib erations, and well sustained the high anticipations whicli had been formed by those who had been instrumental in his election. So favorable was the impression produced, that while yet in the Senate, he was nominated as a candidate for the House of Kepresen tatives of the United States, from the First District of Hamilton county. This was th greater honor, in view of the high character of the men, who for a long series of years, had been its Representatives. In the list were such men as General Findlav. Gener al Robert T. Lytie, Bellamy Istorer, Dr; Alexander Duncan, Nathaniel G. Pendleton, James J. Faran, and D. T. Disney. The issue of the election was unfortunate. The Know NothiDg tornado swept over the country with irresistible force ; and although Mr. Pendleton run ahoad of his ticket.he, as well as the other Democrats, were badly beaten. In 1856, at the next Congressional election, Mr. Pendleton was unaui mously selected to bear again the standard, and this time was.eiected by a flattering vote, over popular and worthy competitors. He took his seat in the House of Representatives in December, 1S57, in the early part of the administration ol President Buchanan, Stormy times were ahead. Uitraism. both North and South, were surging violently against the ship of State, giving premonitions to . , . . , the far-seeiFjg ana sagacious or tne : ...... . iv.x ..vm disasters that were to come. Mr. Pendleton's course was soon taken. It was moderate and highly conservative, having this object stea dily In view the preservation of the Union by maintaining amity between the States. To those extremists whether trom the North or the South whose policy was continual agita tion, that was menacing to the Na' tional peace, he opposed a firm and inflexible opposition. He was placed upon one of the most important com mittees of the House, that of Military Affairs, and was soon known as an ac tixe und working member In 1858 he was nominated for a third time to Congress, Hia compet itor this year was T. U. Eay, Esq., who, in 1854, had deleated him by a majority of thousands. The contest was very sharp, and an enormous vote was uolled. The general result was unfortunate to the Democracy Every candidate on the ticket but one, was defeated. The exception was Mr. Pendleton, who was elected by some three hundred and fifty ma jority. In I860 occurred the Presidential election, and the break up of tbe Democratic party at the Charleston Convention. There were three Dem ocratic and Conservative candidates for President, viz: Stephen A. Doug' las, John C. Brecken ridge and John Bell. This unfortunate breach open ed the way for a Lepublican triumph with Mr. Lincoln. Mr. Pendleton warmly sustained Mr. Douglas, and was renominated by that wing of the party for re-election to Congress. Hia main comDetitor was Judge Oliver 1 XT Sncnwr nf th Klinerlor UOUrt . ..... - - . x Cincinnati, a most eminent jurist, aDd whose Dersonal popularity was as great as any man's in Hamilton coun a ty. The election was very vigorous- ly and warmly contested. Mr. Pen dleton canvassed his district with the same energy and vigor he had dis played on previous occasions, and . i 1 -111. A..Mk a An'tl was again eiecieu, uiuiuuj;i u. waiv erablo portion of the county ucei was beaten. He received tne aroent support of ail the Brecknrldge uem ocrats in his district. While serving his third term the civil war between the North and the South, growing out of the secession of the latter from the Union, occurred. It would be occupying too much space in a brief biographical notice to discuss the po sitions assumed by Mr. P. in this un happy national convulsion. Suffice it to say, they were those entertained by the great mass of his political friends, who believed that the war ought to and could have been avoided by Mr. Lincoln's administration, and that, being wrongly commenced, it would lead to no good result. While such were his views, he at the same time announced his willingness to vote for all appropriations that might be necessary to maintain the national honor, and prevent disaster to the flag. In 1861 the Democracy were beaten overwhelmingly in both the Congress ional Districts of Hamilton county. and in 1S62 there seemed to be little hope that the party would again be able to elect Mr. Pendleton. He was nominated, however, unanimously, with the most enthusiastic acclama tions. This was his fifth nomination, an unusual number for an Ohio dis trict to give, where the doctrine of rotation has so loDg prevailed. His competitor was Colonel John Groes bock, whose friends made extraordi nary efforts in his behalf. Mr. Pen dleton's course In -Congress was the issue, and upon it the Democracy went Into the fight in the country. To the astonishment of th6 Republi cans they were beaten, aDd Mr. Pen dleton was returned for the fourth time to his seat by a majority of one thousand and three hundred. The Democracy also carried the other Congressional District, electing Mr. Alexander Long to Congress, with the Democratic county ticket. After the election, and when it was thought the Democrats would have a majority in the House of Rcpresenta lives. JMr. .fenaietoirs name was- prominently spoken of for Speaker of the Hou.-e of Rt-pretenta fives. The Republicans, however.prewrved their ascendency, and iio serious contest could be made in his behalf. He was appointed by the Speaker elect, Mr. Colfax, upon the committee of Ways and Means, the leading one of the House, and to which it is usual io as sign the strongest t ablest members It is this corxmittee which shapes the whole financial policy of the country, and is, necessarily, brought into the most intimate, confidential relations with all the heads of the departments. and with the Executive branch of the Government. He had previously been on the Judiciaryjcommittee.from which he had been transferred from the Military Affairs serving, there fore, in the course of his term, upon the three leading committees in tbe House. In 1864 the period again arrived for the Presidential election. The De- nocraey cast their eyes about in search of a suitable and available candidate. In the Northwest there was a strong feeling that Mr. Pendleton was that man. He had been the intimate per sonal friend of Stephen A. Douglas, and upon the latter's decease they be lieved no one was left more worthy to wear his mantle and be his succes sor in the affections of the party. A large rumber of his friends repaired to Chicago,where the Convention was held, to urge his selection." It was soon found, however, that the pre vailing sentiment was for a military man, who had a record in the war that was then progressing. General Georsre B. McClellan was selected as the candidate for President on the first ballot. Mr. Penaleton's friends then pressed his name for Vice Preti dent, and he was selected over able and strong competitors on tho second ballot, receiving the two-thirds vote required. Mr. Pendleton was a dele gate in the Convention, having been complimented in such a selection by the Democracy of the State, who had chosen him as one of the delegates at laree. Uron beine- called out, he I t5 X f- J ..gptgrj the nomination in a graceful 1 1 speech, acknowledging in modest and becoming terms the high honor he had received. The issue of the elec tion was disastrous. Military tyranny and official fraud and corruption pre vailed. Three States alone gave their votes for McClellan, viz : Delaware, New Jersey and Kentucky. The contest, however, in some of the large States such as New York and Penn sylvania was very close, a change of fifty thousand votes would have elected McClellan and Pendleton On the 4th of March, 1865, Mr, Pendleton's fourth term of service in the National House expired. He had long been regarded by both his politi cal friends and opponents as tbe lead' ing man of his party In the House, and his retirement waa the cause of general regret. On the last day of the session an incident occurred which showed how great was his popularity, and how highly he was appreciated by his fellow members.; A special hour was, by unanimous consent, as signed him to make a speech In favor of a measure he had introduced, viz; to give to Cabinet officers seats upon the floor of the House, where they might reply to such Interrogatories should be addressed to them touching the affairs of tht Gevernment in their departments. Every moment was precious. Some of the great appro priation ' bills had not passed ; but such was the respect felt for him. and so great was the desire to hear him, that, by unanimous consent, he made a closing argument in favor of his ex cellent proposition. A more magma cent compliment was never tendered wciiiuci txi In 1866 the Democratic State Cen tral Committee of Ohio selected Mr. P. as a delegate to the Philadelphia Convention. He did not, however, attnd that body, but sent his dcli nation to the committee, who appoint ted a substitute In his place. The time lor another Congressional election had again rolled around. Mr. P.'s friends, in view of the immense importance of the next Congress, and under the belief that he was the stron gest man they could elect,pressed him to accept another nomination for the place, in which he had achieved such renown. He consented, although , aware that the odds were strongly against his success. At the Congress ional election in 1S64. when he ran for Vice President, the Democratic can didate was beaten two thousand five hundred yotes by the Republican nominee, Benjamin Eggleston. To overcome this majority was a hercu lean task; but Mr P. set himself about it with the greatest vigor and energy. He canvassed all the townships and wards, but the lavish use of money by the opposition and their perfect organization carried -Ahem through, but by a greatly reduced majority, He, as usual, ran ahead of his ticket, and the majority against him was but 926 votes. Such has been briefly recalled the political career of Mr. Pendleton, which has been, in the main, a signal success. It has been so because he possesses superior mental and moral attainments. Endowed by nature with a strong and vigorous intellect, has been assiduously improved by cultivation and study, and by scholas tic and educational polish. It is re markably well balanced ; and there are few menho have less weakness and frailty, and whose minds are more completely developed. Ever calm and self-possessed, he is seldom betrayed into excitement, and always acts under the dominion ot reason. instead of passion. As a consequent acts of indiscretion are rare, and mis-taken are seldom made bv him. While moderate and conservative in his views, he is cnfiexible and deter mined in adhering to them, and con sistency and manly independence have ever been' among his character istics and virtues. Dignified in his carriage, yet modest and unassuming. he is always courteous to opponents : and in the heated and vehement con tests of the last ten yers, in which he has been engaged, he has' made no pecsorfal enemy, and left behind him nowhere the stings of jealonsy orenvy nmong personal rivals and political associates. His speeches and public addresses have been marked by logical strength by historical research, by great con densation and brevity, and by class ical purity of style. When to these superior mental qualities we add a social nature, a genial disposition and fine personal address, it is not to be wondered at that he has troops of friends, who take pride in his past career, who regard him as one of the most promising ot the statesman now in public life, and who look tor- ward with hope and confidence to the future, that it will bring with it for him still higher honors and a more brilliant career. [From the Cleveland Herald, 10th inst.] Young Lady in New Philadelphia A Young Lady in New Philadelphia Commit Suicide—Some of the Supposed Reasons for the Act—Other Parties Implicated. The whole populatioh of New Phil adelphia, Tuscarawas county, was in expressibly shocked to learn of the sudden death by poison, Saturday morning last, of a young lady be longing to a well-krown respectable tamily of the town. Subsequent in vestigation revealed the fact that the poison was administered by her own nana. 11 is reported, indeed, that two doses were taken the first, beine an over-dose, acted only as an emetic, out me second produced death in about an hour. Of course there were a thousand ru mors as the cause of the melancholy affair. Very few, however, were in possession of the facts, which we give on good authority, as follows : Some time since a young man named Ever ett, living in New Philadelphia, en gaged to marry the deceased girl, but her parents objected on account of Everett's character. The match was broken off, and Everett married an other woman. He seems to have still retained a fondness for his first Jiance and continued his occasional visits to her for some time, and until it be came a matter of remark. Nothing criminal was suspected, however, up to last Friday night, when, to the as tonishment even of her own friends, the girl was delivered of a child. So carefully had she concealed her condi- I ou,. Vlll.tUll.U i UUUl tion, that her own family were una I sa. T a 1 . 1 ware or it. it has since been ascer tained that she had made prepara tions to leave the place before the ex pected time of the birth, and these plans may owe their lauure to pre- mature labor. It is also aserted that she had madehersblt acquainted with-: poisons, as a last resort in case she was discovered. All these precautions having failed, and the dreadful ex posure having come, the poor girl was overwhelmed with grief and shame too great to bear, and so ended h er ruined lite. Everett has left the place gone no one kuows where. The former standing of the parties and their good connections, have made the whole affair one of intense inter est in New Philadelphia and vicinity. Singular Death. In Akron, a little son of Geo. H. Bien, two and a half years of age. swallowed a number of garden beans, producing a severe straugulation for a few minutes, bat which, however, was speedily relieved by the child vomiting freely and throwing up sev eral of the beans. About half past one in tho afternoon, while being ca ressed by his mother, he strangled a gain, dying almost Instantly. A post mortem examination showed that one of the beans entered the windpipe, which being so lodged for the time being as to produce no serious obsta cle to respiration, became displaced by a sudden inspiration of the breath completely closing the air passage, and, of course, producing death. Prof. J. K. H. Wilcox, Messrs. Grifflng, Mrs. Julia Archibald Holmes and Mrs. Carner, a delegation from the Universal Franchise Association, filed an argument on the ; merits of woman for suffrage before the House Committee on the District of Col am Dia on Saturday. The arguments were mainly sustained by Mrs. Holme and Prof. W)lcox, and at the conclu sion the delegation, thank the Com mittee for their kind attention, wnen theOommlttee reciprocated the Com pliment, declaring themselves great ly enUrtalned by the arguments. The Committee will submit a report on the subject at the next session. Statistics of Stark County.

The most recent elopement from Lowell, Mass., is that of a boy of fif teen, who took a sudden departure with a servant girl gfty years of age, and with an incumbrance of five chil dren. The girl was in the employ of the boy's parents. The New York World, ot Monday, thinks that nobody ever seriously en tertained the idea of Chase's nomina tion by the Democracy, while the Sun, of tbe same day, says that the real contest will be between him and Peudleton. Here is an insinuation. The lievo lutions&ys : "We trust there is enough virtue in the American people to or ganize a new National party on this broad ides, and elect an honest, liber al-minded, sober President in the coming election." from one ot our JNew York ex changes we learn that capital is so abundant, that on Saturday loans were made at the rate of one. per cent um per annum. This, we believe, is without precedent in this country. An old man named Edwards, who lives in. Springfield, Mass., and his bewitching daughter, who doisn't live with her husband, are said to be confederates in a neat little game to swindle countrymen. The female is sweet on young men, induces them to mvite her to ride, and the parent starts after the young couple, raises a breeze, and the young man, if green enough, pays roundly to avoid arrest for an attempt at elopement. Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe,jow resident in Florida, thus makes up her testimony : "The Southern peo ple are no more inclined to resist the laws or to foster the spirit of rebellion than Vermont is. They desire only peace and the restoration of the Union." At Hamilton, Ohio, Henry Holle- cher, while engaged In an altercation with his wile, became so enraged at his son for interfering in the same, that lie seized a shot-gun and dis charged it in the latter's face, inflict ing n serious if not fatal wound.

From Mr. Johnson it is learned that he never was a member of the League, and was not aware that anybody had put his name on the list. "Come Down." We were much a- mused the other day by an anecdote of a certain Secretary of a Governor, several removes backward from the present Chief Magistrate of the Em pire State. Like most sub-officials, to whom some "pressing " final process is committed, he had an itching palm while, at the same time, it would not be exactly safe to &how his hand too openly. On one occasion he had, for the third time, been waited upon by an impatient party, interested in two important bills which had passed the legislature, and, with sundry other, were awaiting the Governor's signa ture. "Did you place that bill before his Excellency?" asked the party of the Secretary.

FAPE3. ESTVELOPES, &c, -Always kept on band A Wonderful Skull—Singular Medical A Wonderful Skull—Singular Medical Fact. Twenty years ago, in Cavendish, Vermont, a man named Sage, twenty five years of age, possessing an Iron frame, met witli a singular, accident, tho particulars of which., we collect lrom a paper read by Dr. Harlow a few days since, befor the Massachu setts Medical Society. Sage was ram ming a hole that had been charged taw with powder. The iron struck fire from the rock, and the iron he was rammingwith was driven up through his cheek, out of the top of his head, high in the air, and was afterwards found, smeared with blood and brains. The tamping iron wa3 3i feet in length and 13- inches thick, and pointed at Sfca- one end, the taper being seven inches long, and the diameter of the point a quarter of an inch. It weighed thir teen pounds. The point was upward and the iron smooth. The missile en tered, by its pointed end, the left 6ide of the face, immediately anterior to the angle of the lower jaw, and past ing obliquely upward and slightly backwards, emerged out of the top of the head in the median hue, at the baak pnrt of the frontal bone, near the coronal suture. The ordinary reader vill understand it better, if we say that, pointing upward it entered the cheek outside the teeth, and un der the cheek bone, went inside an inch behind the eye, nod out of the top of the head iu the . centre, two inches back of the lino where the forehead and l'mir me,-t. After a few mintites the man was taken three quarters of a mileiu a sitting position in a cart. The opening in the brain wa two inches wide by three and a half inches long. In fifty-nino days the patient was abroad. .The effect of the injury was the destruction of . the equilibrium between his aniniet aud intellectual faculties. . The man lived until JS01, when Dr. .Harlpii" secured tne skuii, which he exhibited, illus trative of the statements contained in his paper. '' : . As Lons Buqeb, the 'well-known author aud philologist, was walking in the Avcnur des Champs Ely sees, one day during -the Exhibition in Paris last year, he heard a familiar voice exclaiming, "Buy some - .mils of a poor man, sir; twenty for a penny 17. "What!" said Burger, looking up, aud recognizing his old barber, "are you selling nuts?" 'Ah, sir, x have been unfortunate," waa the reply. "But tills Is no business for a man like you," said Burger. "O, sir, If you could only tell me of some thing better to do!" returned tlie barber, wilh a sigh. Burger was touched. He reflected a mo ment, then, tearing a leaf from his memo randum-book, he wrote for a few moments, and handed it to the man, saying, "Take this to a printing-olHce, and have a hundred copies struck off; here is the money to pay for it. Get a license from the Prefecture of the Police, and sell them at two sous a copy and you will have bread on the spot. The strangers who visit Paris cannot refuse this tribute to the name of God, printed in so many different ways." The barbr did as he was bu!, and was al ways seen in the entrance to the Exhibition, selling the following hand-bill : THE NAME OF GOD IN FORTY-EIGHT LANGUAGES. guages.

'Yes, indeed, sir," said the barln-r, "I sell on an " average a hundred copies a day at two sous each, or ten francs; . but the strangers are generous; some give me ten sous,' and others twenty. -1 have even re ceived two francs for a copy; so that, all told, I am making fivc-and-twenty francs a day."
