At Clifton Springs, N. Jadga Doug las lifted bis voice aud announced to the people" have found my mother f" And the Jenkins of the Buffalo Courier gravely records that "after Lis speech, he returned to tbe residence of bis mother, about two miles from the Springs, where be was to spend banday. ; Candidate Donglas took a very circuit ous route to find his mother, , though be must Lave beard from bor as will appear by the following maternal epistles the first from Vermont and the second from Maine. They "speak for themselves AT HOME, Sept. 5, 1860. . Dxab Stephen : I am sorry I was not at borne when you was here. It is too bad for you to come so far (o see your old mother and not see her, and 1 not see you, But you will be rewarded for it; a dutiful child always prospers, as you know x used to tell you, when you was a smaller sucker than you are now. hat a good boy you are, Stephen, to call yourself tbe Little Sucker, just out of respect to vour young erly days and your mother who bore and nursed you. If I don't lire to see you President, I can die with the bope ot as surance that you are a dutiful sen. I should hare sent a letter to you be fore, if I bad have known where to send it. I would think, now I'll send a letter to Stephen at some place where 1 beard you was, but the next I beard you wasn't there. Everybody used tosay yoo was tbe spry est boy (or a short-legged one they ever see. 1 am glad you bold out so well now you are a man. I am sorry you have been to so much trouble to find me. It seems lo me, though, you needn't thought I was down South Amongst tbe niggers, cause you know. I never did think much of niggers; I don't wonder you thought likely as not 1 was down in Rhode Island amongs the clams, cause I always did love clams, and if you are any like me you love them a good deal better than you do niggers. I wish sometimes,-olepben, you wasn t in politics. They're ticklish things. There was an election here yesterday. Tbe Black Republicans are tickled to death about it. They are hooraying and yelling about Pop Squat Democracy, and say it s Diown to kingdomjeome, and that you've gone after it and your mother. Ibis is pretty stun to be hollering about, am t it! X was pro voked last night, to hear one of the Wide Awakes, as they call them, call you a gone sucker. What do they want to nickname you fort Why can't they call you what you ought to be, the Little Sucker! Our nearest neighbor, and a good menu to you, bas been in this morning, and says its an over with the Democracy in Vermont; he says they are four thousand worse off than ever before. I dou't like these politics. ' If I bad been here wben you was, 1 could have shown you your father's grave, which is right here, and that would have saved you the trouble of hunting for it down in New Hampshire and Maiue. I'm sorry I was gone. I'm going to have some grave stones put up. 1 want lo see you very mucn ; i nope you'll come on again sometime, and I'll try aud be at home. 1 have got old and sban t journey much more, though I waut to visit our friends in Maine ana Pennsylvania, this fall. I think of going down to Maine, next week, and I will write to you from there, if I hear you get this letter. Be careful iof your health, Stephen. You will take it kind fiom your mother, I know, when I advise you to go right home to Ulinoy aud rest. It will be belter for your throat, and your stomach, and - the gout you have hanging about you, than traveling and talking so much. YOUR ANXIOUS MOTHER. PORTLAND, Sept. 11, 1860. Dear Stephen I am glad you got my letter. I am sorry I said anything to trouble you. You shouldn't set your heart too much on being President. It's all van ity Stephen, and I don't doubt the Wise Man would say. if he was alive, that ex pecting it is vanity of vanities. Love your mother, reverence your father s grave, aud be an honest man, and it will be better for you than to get to be President. It is my luck to get right into politics, it I stay at borne or go anywhere nowadays. They've had an election here. The Black Republicans are higher over it tban tbey were up in Vermont They are yelling, and torch-lighting, and hooraying, and act- lusr rather foolisb, it seems lo me. X am old- and have seen a great deal of trouble, and I can't bear to see the people so tick led with tbe empty things of this world. The Democrats here are very sober, just as they are in Vermont They ain't all a laagbing and making a great racket as tbe Black Republicans are. I never, was in such a noisy place. I cant bear myself think, 1 can t hear nothing but mixed np mess about Republican gaiu, Republican majority, nfteen or twenty Kepublican Con gressmen all right, Squatlei Popular De mocracy blown sky-bigb and the little gone sucker with it, such stuff. I shall be cra zy if tbey dont stop tbe noise soon. What is this squatter thing, you re bold of, Ste phen, I should like to know, that these Black Republicans laugh and talk so much about ! It's all squat, squat, squatter, here and up to Vermont. I'm an old lady, and been through a good deal, and am ac- 3 (Minted with a great fqany things, but I on't know what this squatting thing you've got, is. I asked a Democrat to-day about it, and he told me it was a dogmy, and meant Popular Sovereignty. He couldn't give me any other light, I couldn't under stand him, and I am as much in the dark as I was before. Do let your old mother know about it in your next letter. When I hear about this squatter thing, it makes me think of tbe story our old parson in Vermont used to tell sometimes, in the pulpit, when he preached about deception, He. said it was a story that Milton, a poet, told about the devil, how be got into the garoan ot xvden to tempt our nrst parents, and an angel found him there one niebt. in tbe shape of a toad close to Eve, or as the parson used to say it, "Squat like a toad close at the ear of Eve. The angel bad a spear and pricked tbe toad, and the toad jumped up as quick as a flash the devil in his true shape. I hope Ste phen, there isn t any such deception about this squatter dogmy, that you are hold of. Don't have anything to do with the devil, 1 beg of yon. If my health and life is spared I shall go to Pennsylvania a visiting in four or five weeks. They tell me you got so hoarse when you was in Maine, that you couldn't speak above your breath. I am afraid you are exerting yourself too much. Hadn't you better go right home to lllinoy and rest YOUR ANXIOUS MOTHER. Who is Carl Schurz! Carl Scburz was born thirty-two years ago, in Bonn, on the Rhine, in the Prussian dominions. In 1849, be joined the (Jon stitutional army, and sharing in its re verses, was sentenced to death for high tre son. For three days and nights after the Prussians had entered Rastadt, be lay con cealed in a shed, on a team or rafter, just wide enough to conceal his person from the eyes of those who stood below. A guard of somo kind was stationed in the very bouse lo which this shed belonged, and ev ery night tbe soldiers assembled on the floor beneath uis biding place, and danced to the music of the trumpet- On tbe fourth night a heavy shower of rain gave hi in the nrst opportunity of attempting an escape, and be jumped from the roof on a chicken coop, wbich bioke down under him with a loud crash, though without attract ing the notice of tbe sentry, who was, or ought to have been, but a few yards off. By the assistance of Lis friends he reached a sewer, and thus attained tbe outside of the fortifications. Even here there was a sentry, but, by following closely behind him as be walked by, he managed to .gain a cover, before the sentry turned on his beat. He made his way to Paris, and remained there a considerable time, iu the vain bope of a favorable turn in the affairs of his na tive country. Iu a little book, published by tbe chief spy of Bonaparte's police, he received honorable mention as "the most audacious and most adroit of tbe exiles, who, while constantly active, could never be ensnared into any act furnishing a pre text even to the liberal conscience of a Bo naparte for bis extradition. At this time tbe public opinion of tier- many was much aroused by the cowardly vengeance wreaked by the Prussian Gov ernment on. Godfrey Kingel, a townsman of Scburz's a professor, who had joined the constitutional movement at the same time with himself. This man ; a poet of deli cate frame, highly educated, aud accustom ed to all the refinements of life, was im prisoned at Spandnu, twenty miles from Berlin, dressd as a convict, his hair cropped short, aud forced to labor at wool-carding, and to room and mess with felons. Scburz having determined to rescue him repaired to London, collected the means, and made the arrangements. With a forged pass port be traveled direct to Berlin, left his papers wi h the police over night, obtained a vise for some other town the next morn ing, and, instead of proceeding, took lodg ing iu a boarding house There he remain ed for six weeks, going to Spandau eveiy day, and returning late at night wben tbe policeman was always so obliging as to un lock tbe door of bis boarding house for him. All I be arrangements having been completed, be carried off Einkel in a coach one rainy night, together with bis keeper. Relays of horses were in readiness from station to station unlil they reached the sea shore, where a pilot-boat received them. They landed at Hull or Yarmouth long be fore tbe Government had tbe most remote idea of the prisoner's whereabouts. Com ing to this country in 1851, be registered himself as a law student at Philadelphia, and sojourned there for a number of years, occupying his time, almost exclusively, with the study of this country, its material and social condition, its history, its institu: tions and its future. In 1856 he removed to Wisconsin, and entered on the practice of tbe law in Milwaukee. In South the Douglas Press Beast that Douglas is a Larger Slaveholder than all the rest of the Candidates together. The Mobile Register, tbe great Douglas organ in Alabama, boasts thaU3r"Judge Douglas OWNS MORE SLAVES THAN ALL THE REST OF THE PRESIDEN TIAL CANDIDATES TOGETHER." We commend it to the bitter Abolition ist who does np tbe editorials of the States man, and his compeer of the Plaindealer who boasted in Ashtabula county, that he once stole a negro from his master and hid bim in the steeple of a church. National Democrat. The Glorious Result in Maine. The vote in Maine is large and will reach about 120,000, considerably larger than ever before. For Governor in 220 towns, the returns foot np 61,545 for Washburne, 43,834 for Smart, and 1,224 for Barnes, tbe Bell candidate. Washburne's majority as far as heard, 16,709. Republican ma jority in the Stale last year, 11,843. The . . Ml III? returns to come in win prooaDiy increase tbe Republican majority. Tbe Republican candidates for Congress are all elected by increased majorities. The majorites are nearly as follows: I. John N. Goodwin by 1,7 orcr Thomas M. Hayes. TI. Charles W. Walton by 8,000 orer Calrin Record. DL Samuel C. Fessenden by 900 orer Alfred W. John son. , IT. Anson P. Morrill by 8,000 over B. A. O. Fuller. V. John H. Rice hy 2,600 over S. H. Blaxe. VI. Frederick A. Fixe by 1,300 over Bion Bradbury. Tbe Senate consists of 31 members and is unanimously Republican. Tbe last House consisted of 119 Repub licans and 32 Democrats. This was thought hard to beat; but there are proba bly not over 25 Democrats elected this year. Thus far, the returns are 84 Republicans, 11 Democrats. In ono township-there is m tie. Hampden, the home of Hamlin, gave last year 319 Republican to 214 Demo cratic votes. ' This year, Washburne 368, Smart 187, Barnes 3, showing a large Re publican increase and a Democratic falliug off. How Douglas Doubles. Senator Douglas, in bis speech on Mon nment Square in this city on Saturday last said: - The opposition to the removal of the Missouri restriction was a reproach to ftUKltiERN HONESTY andNOliltl ERN HONOR.- We may search tbe speeches of this arch political gymnast in vain, to find a parallel insult to the people of tbe i ree Stales; an insult not only to tbe living but an insult to tbe great dead who in 1820, under the overshadowing of threatened disembarkment of tbe then experimental Union, drew tbe Missouri line as a com promise between opposing factions. But let us examine Mr. Douglas' record upon this point On tbe 6th day of Aug ust, 1850, the bill for the admission of Californa was before tho Senate, and Mr. Turney of Tennessee, moved to amend by extending the Missouri Compromise line to the Pacific, which amendment was in the very words of Mr. Douglas' amend ment lo the Oregon bill. On that occa sion as will be found in the Globe appen dix, vol. 22, part 2, page 1510, Mr. Doug said that "if the whole acquired territory was now in tbe same condition as ii was then" (that is when he moved said amend ment in the Oregon bill) " would now vote for it, and should be glad to see it adopted. But since then Crlifornia had organized a State and Mr. Douglas ' said, "I cannot consent, for one, lo destroy that Slate government," and he wound up by saying "for that reason, and that alone, I shall vote against the amendment . Four years after he reported the bill that repealed the same line he would have ex tended to tho Pacific. In a sDeech delivered bv Mr. Douglas in Springfield, Illinois, in 1849, he, in speak ing of the Missouri Compromise line, ut tered these words: "It has received the sanction of all par ties in every section of the Union. It bad its origin in the hearts of all patriotic men who desired to preserve ana perpetuate the blessings of our glorious Union an origin skin .to that of the Constitution of the United States, conceived in the sams spirit of fraternal affection and calculated to re move forever the only danger which seem ed to threaten at some distant day to serve the sacred bond of Union. All the evi dences of public opinion seem to indicate that this Compromise has become cannon ized in the hearts of tbe American people as a sacred thing, which no ruthless hand would be reckless enough to disturb." Let us look a little later to see where Douglas was on the question of the Missou ri Compromise, la Jan'y, 1854, in his first bill for the organization of Nebraska including what is now Kansas no re pealing clause was inserled, and Douglas, in bis report at that time, in speaking of the slavery question as connected with the Compromise of 1850, said: "YOUR COMMITTEE AKE JNOT PREPARED NOW TO RECOMMEND A DEPARTURE from tbe course on that memoriable occasion, EITHER AFFIRM ING OR REPEALING THE EIGHTH SECTION OF THE MISSOURI ACT, or by any Act declaratory of the Consti tution in respect to the legal points of dis P" . Nineteen days thereafter be introduced an amended bill, in which was the repeal ing clause. but our readers need no cumulative proof as to the duplicity and brazen dishonesty of Donglas upon this question. The deed of repeal has dug-his grave, and there he will lie as soon as November-closes the funeral obsequies of those who prove treacherous to Ereedora. The Capitalshouldown-labor Candidate. Herschel V. Johnson, tbe Vice President on tbe Squatter ticket made a speech at Pittsburgh Tbe Gazette says: While, however, Mr. Johnson refrained from re asserting that "Capital should own Labor," he could not refrain his natural in clination to insult the working man. Speaking of slavery, he said: "LOOK AT THE SLAVES IN YOUR OWN WORK SHOPS! THEY ARE DRIVEN TO THE POLLS AT THE BECK OF THEIR M ASTERS.UNDER THE PEN ALTY OF BEING DISCHARGED!" This was received wiih indignant cries of "Not so!" "No, SirT "No, no!" "No sir-ree, bob !" and so on, the working men in the crowd giving tbe Insulting falsehood the most emphatic denial. ' A voice in tbe crowd asked, "What about Capital owning labor!" He answered by repeating the insult substance: "I do not believe," be said in one white man owning another, as tbe masters io your workshops do ! 1 his, also, was received with tbe same indignant response of "No, No!" "Not so!" and Mr. Herschel Vesuvius took to belch ing about "Popular Sovereignty," to es cape from the aroused hostility of his au dience. The working men of this city have learn ed, in person, what a slavehoiding aristo crat thinks of them.. They have often been told that tbe slaveholders despised all laborers, simply because they are labor ers; and tbe haughty, over-bearing, insult ing bearing of this aristocratic, slavehoid ing nabob towards them is proof positive of the fact. Mr. Johnson is one of that class who thing that all laborers are or ought to be slaves and he accordingly treats them as 6ncb ; and he is a fair specimen of the ruling element in the Democratic party. X"The editor of the Statesman, who reioiceth iu the name of "George W. Many- penny." some days since received what he supposed was a Douglas song, in the hand writing of a lady, and signed "Helen." Forthwith the editor publishes it with a note of thanks "lo our lady correspondent, Helen, for her patriate effort." The Bul letin re-publishes the fair "Helen's poetry, which turns out to be an Acrostic, tbe first letters of each line, when put togeth er, reads thus: " George W. Manypenny is a Jackass, a vile old Rat to boot. All this was very wrong in "Helen," for the long eared animal never did her anv barm, and she should not have named him in the same connection with the Douglas editor. Marshal Lowe goes into the Hog Trade. In the the telegraphic column is an ac count of another exploit of tbe Marshal ot tbe Southern District of Ohio in catch ing runaway slaves. The Columbus Jour nal of the (Monday) morning ' gives full particulars. It says: - "It appears that three fugative slaves from the State of Kentucky, bad been so journing for some time in Iberia, in Mor row county, and their masters having learn ed this fact, sent a man into the neighbor hood with the ostensible purpose of buying hogs. In this disguise he obtained access to all the dwellings in that neighborhood, and discovered and recognized tbe fugitives. He immediately apprized the masters of bis success, and they proceeded to Cincin nati and procured the services of Marshal Sifford, and two assistats, who in company with the two Kentucky-owners, arrived in this city on last Tuesday. On Wednesday they sent the pseudo hog drover to Iberia to ascertain if all was right with the un derstanding that if anything was wrong so that tteir plans would be discorcerled, he was to come back on Thursday evening, if not, be was to remain. In the meantime Marshal Sliffbrd had augmented his force so that the whole number amounted, in all, to twelve persons, including Marshal J. K. Lowe, of this city. The fugitive slaves were boarding at three different places, and all within the distance of half a mile. Their plan of op erations was that a posse of four should go to each bouse, secure their men, and meet on the railroad between lbena sat tion and Morrow station, and signal tho night express train, get their fugatives on board and run them through lo Cincinnati. The man they sentfroward not coming back, things seemed to work smoothly, and on Thursday evening they took the Cleve land train, and left it either at Morrow station, or between Cardigton and Morrow but some one on board the train suspecting their iutcntions gave information of the fact nl Iberia station, and the note of alarm was sounded, which brought together, in an incredibly short time, some fifty or sixty armed persons, both white and blabk, who were deiermiued on a rescue. 1 ney imme diately started for the house which contain ed the fugatives. In the meantime tbe different squads of kidnappers bad arrived at the houses assigned them, and Marshal Sifford secured bis fugitive, but bearing the firing of guns iu the direction of the other bouses, made a good bis escape, taking with him the negro. The posse command ed by Lowe, ou their arrival at the house, were surrounded by the rescuers and sever al shots were exchanged, wben Marshal Lowe took to bis heels and made his es cape, tbey, bowever, icok one ot tue Keutuckiaus and one of the assistants prisoners. We learn that they took their arms from them, and, after giving them a lecture upon the business they were en gaged in, set them at liberty. The bal- Ianc6 of ihe marshal s assistants scamped off in different directions, glad to escape with their lives. We nudcrstand that in tbe melee, one negro bad one ot bis nngers suot on ana one of the assistant Marshals was badly wounded so badly, that wben he arrived at Columbus, be had to be carried away from the baggage Chr. We bad supposed that Marshal s Lowe s experience in the Wellington rescue ctse was sumcieut to deter bun from engaging in operations of this kiud, but it seems that it has only whet bis appetite and sharpened his ingenuity for other adven tures in kidnaping, cut Marshal Lowe has been very unfortunate thus far in pecu liar kind of business, and we advised bim to dry up resign, and turn his energies in some other and more honerable direction. A thought for Young Men. More may be learned by devoting a few moments daily to reading, than is com monly supposed. Five pages may be read in fifteen minutes, at which rate one may peruso twenty-six volumes of two hundred pages each in a year. You say you have none to guide you. ihe best scholars and men of science will tell you by far the most valuable part of their education is that which they have given themselves. Volumes have been filled with the autobi ography of self-taught men. Think of irauklm, the printer; of Xiinne, the shoe maker; of John Hunter, the cabinetmaker; of Herschel, the musician ; of Donald tbe weaver; of Turner, the printer; of BurriU, the blacksmith. Love learning, and you will be learned. Where lliere is a will there will be a way. Begin at once, take time by the forelock, and remember that it is only tbe first step that costs, aud having begun, resolve to learn something every day. ' Strike tbe blow, and avoid the weakness of those who spend half of life in thinking what tbey shall do next Always have a volume near you which you may catch up at such odd miuutes as are your own. It is in creditable, until trial bas been made, bow much real knowledge may be acquired in those broken fragments of time, which are like the dust of gold and diamond. Don't Fret. Two gardeners living side by side, had their early vegetables killed by the frost One came over wilh a sor iowful face shortly afterwards to condole with the other. "How unfortunate we have been, neigh bor," be said. "Do you know I have done nothing but fret ever since. But. bow is this, you seem to have a fine crop coming np already; what are these! "Why these are what I sowed directly after my loss. While you were fretting neighbor, I was working." "Don't you ever fret !" asked the other in astonishment. "I always put it off until I hnve repaid the mischief. "Why, then you have no reason to fret at all!"' "That is very true, and is just the rea son why I put it off." Bodies Rbcovbksd. One hundred and forty-three bodies of the lost on the Elgin had been recovered up to tbe evening of the 17ih. A thought for Young Men. The National Fair--Sixth Day. The attendance the sixth day of the U S. Fair was estimated at 20,000, and much! interest was manifested. Floral Hall was an attractive feature, and there was a fine display in the Pomological Department. The Horticulturists of Cincinnati look hold of the matter at tbe eleventh hour, and the Hall was crowded with admirers. There was no fruit on exhibition from Northern Ohio or Kelly's Island. In tbe Horse Department, thorough-bred. stallions, four years eld and upwards, "Bonnie Scotland," owned by Reeber & Kutz, Lancaster, O., took the first premi um qf $500; "Gray Gleucoe," of Butler cot the second of 200 ; "Nolan Arabian," of Cincinnati, imported from Crimea by capt. Nolan, of the Brinish army, the third of 1100. 1 here were but four en tries. Of ihe years and under four, "Prince of Wales," of New Orleans, was awarded the first premium of 300; "Andy Burt," of Warren co., tbe second of 100. Over two and under three, "Revenge," owned by Reeber & Kutz was first and ouly, and took tbe 1 100. Altogether, Messrs Ree ber & Kutz have carried off 1,160 in pre miums on horses at the present National Fair. A trotting'race, mile heats, 2 in 3, for citizen's purse of 1100, was contested by Bob Watts, Uncle Ned, Fillmore and Lady Gay, and won by Bob Walts. Thirteen Morgan and Black Hawk stall ions were exhibited. For best four year old and npward, "Stockbridge Chief," of Hamilotn co., took tbe nrst premium ot $500. "Rattler," of Kentucky, the second of 1200. Best three year old and under four, "Seneca Chief, of -Hamilton co., tbe first of $250. The well known Kentucky horse "Zack Taylor," owned by Mr. Ashley of Nunda N, l, while being trotted on tbe track, reared and fell over on his side, "dead as a herring. Awards were made in the Swino De partment, mostly of Ohio competitors. hi. & li. Barret of Milan, took four premi ums on the small breed swine, and three on live fat Swine, making a total of $95. J. H. Benson, of Cardington, . look three premiums on large breed, amounting to 35 dollars. In the Short Horn contest, the finest cattle of Ohio and Kentucky were compe titors. The lion's share of the ribbons went to Kentucky. Tbe first premium of $100 for imported Durham bulls, three years old and upwards, was taken by "Ken lucky Duke," of Springfield, Obiot Mr. Clark, of Springfield, also took first pre mium for best imported Durham cow, $75. Tbe first premium of $100 for best native Durham bull, went to B. J. Clay's "Ken tucky Duke," and tbe second, of $40, to "Challenge," of Fayette co., Ohio. The first and secoud premiums for native Dur ham cows were awarded to Kentuky stock. Also $100 for best bull and four cows. There were five Durham herds exhibited. Bourbou counly took took tbe ribbons. -Iu the Sheep Department, Thomas As ton, Elyria, took the first premium of $30 for best imported Cotswold buck, and Samuel Toms, of Elyria, $30 for best Southdown buck.

Do you not see that little sun-beam dancing so gracefully ! It peeps ever and anon c- ver my shoulder, aud now shrieks back as if blushing to see 'itself the subject of eulogism. Welcome, " sun-beam ! for tbon bast come from a world far bright er than this; tis thon who glidest on the angel's crown, and throwest a halo of light where'er thou dwellest The ocean wel comes thee, and ceases for a while its heav ing; for to its bosem a sacred guest is clasp ed. The sea-nymphs woo thy gaze; the untold wealth of the eea thou beholdest, while man canuot give one glauce at tbe many mysteries and beauties concealed in its profound depths. Thou hast come lo bring good tidings to tbe weary, and thou whisper est "There is rest in heaven." And thou visited the lonely cell, too, where the poor criminal is incarcerated in chains; thou art kind indeed, to think of him; to cheer the unfortunate. Miss Haines. Timely warning. A Yankee editor thus confesses to have had dealings with Satan, for the good of his readers of coarse : I was sitting in my study, when I beard a knock at tbe door. ."Come iu," said I: when the door open ed and who should walk in but Satan ! "How do yon do!" said he. "Pretty well," said I. "What are you about, preparing your leader!" "Yes," said I. "Ah, I dare say you think you are do ing a great deal of good !" "Well not so much as I could wish ; but a little, I hope," said I. "How many subscribers' have you!" "About 1500," said L "WeH, pretty well for that and I dare say you are proud of them." " "No I am not (r not one half of them pay for their papers," said I. ' "You don't say so V he exclaimed. "Yes, that I do; not one half of them pay for their papers." "Well," said he, "they are an immortal lot; but let me have the list, I think I can do a trifle myself with such people." Scoops Abandoned. The fall fashion for bonnets has come out and scoops are condemned. The fall fashion makes the bonnet smaller than ever yet the front more rejecting, but not thrown up as now, but is close to the face rather it should say close to the nape of tbe neck. Blondin in Ireland. An imitator of RUnrtin in Dublin nntWtook to walk a rope secured to poles fifty feet high. They fell and killed two men. The Irish Blon din fell with the rope, but was only slightly injurea. Making Fan. Ouce wben traveling ia a stage coach I met a young lady who seemed to be upon the constant look out fore something laughable; and not content with laughing herself, look great pains to make others do the same. , " Now, traveling in a stage coach is rather prosy business. People in this sitution are apt to show themselves peevish and selfiish ; so the young lady's good humor was for a time, very agreeable to the trav elers. Every old bam was made the sub ject of a passing joke, while the cows and hens looked demurely on, little dreaming that folks could be merry at their expense. Animals are not sensative in that respect Tbey are not likely to have their feelings injured because people make fun of them ; but when we come to humaa. beings that is quite another thing. So it seemed to me; for after a while aa old woman came running across the fields, swinging her ba at tbe coachman,'and in a shrill voice beg ging him to stop. The good natured coachman drew up his horses, and the good old lady coming' to the fence by the roadside, squeezed herself through two bars, which were not only in a horizontal poskition, but Very near to gether. The young lady in he stage coach made some ludicrous remark, and the passengers laughed. It seemed very excusable ; for in getting through the fence the poor woman bad made sad work with her old black bonnet, and now taking a 6eat beside a well-dressed lady, really look ed as if she had been blown there by a whirlwind. This was a new piece of ran, and the girl made ' the most of it. She caricatured the old lady upon a card; pre tended, when she was not looking, to take patterns of her bonnet, and in various oth er ways tried to raise a laugh. At length the poor woman turned a pale face toward her. : "My dear, jou are youngj healthy and happy ; I have been so too, but that time has past; I am now decrept and forlorn. This coach is taking me to the death-bed of my child. . And then, jny dear, I shall be a poor old woman, all alone in tbe world where merry girls think me a very amusing object Tbey laugh at my old fashioned clothes and old appearance, fom getting that the old woman bas a spirit that bas loved and suffered and will live forever." - ! -t Tbe coach now stopped before a poor looking house, and the old lady feebly de scended the steps. - .'-" ' "How is she !" was the first trembling in quiry of the poor mother. , "Just alive," said the man who was lead ing her into the house. ' ' Putting np the slepsr the driver mount ed his box, and. we were on the read again-. Our merry young friend had her card in her pocket She was leaning her head up on her hand; and .you may be assared I was not sorry to see a tear npon her fair cheek. It was a good - lesson, and . one which we hoped would do her good. 1 - . - r The Leviathan of the Air. Prof. Lowe, sailed from Philadelphia for Europe the other day, in a balloon which, is statiscally described by the North Amer ican: , The vast machine is made of 61,000 yards of linen canvas, oiled and varnished, and enclosed in a net of flax twine, on the strength of which the balloon depetffls, more than on the strength ot tbe canvas itself, as the net keeps tne machine within. proper bounds. The ballon, when filled, will contain 725,000 cubic teet ot gas) and the filling of it costs, as we are in formed, about wivuu. xne inung power is twenty-two and a half tons The ear in which the voyagers will be placet! is made; of basket work' and beneath that is sus pended one . of Francis' life boats, with masts and sails complete for sea service if there should be any descent into the At lantic The gas in the great canvas receiv er expands under the influence of the sun's rays, so that it is not to be quiet filled, but it contracts with tbe coolness of tho night and the balloon sinks when the bal last is thrown out s M preserve a suffi cient altitude. Professor Lowe assert that at a certain height say three miles per Dendicular there is a steady current of air forever blowing from west to east, which he thinks will take him to Europe in two days but say from two to five days, and wonderful Voyage will be accomplished.-" Then there is a counter or return enrrent beneath, which blows from west lo east, that will bring him back again. These currents are steady, and when it is remem bered that the earth, in turning on lis axis in this latitude. goes at the rate or 6UO miles an hour, it is manifest that the cor rects we have alluded to must be tolerably strong. The gas will escape a little, for it is not profitable to make so very large a bag impermeable, Ana men m vapor m nroiiiiced nside which also reduces the gas. These are contigencies to be provided for. Good Boy. nf Waloe rWJines CoL Ma- Inv.llos n rrn hllffklo hunting. 00- cause he promised bis mother'before he left in - . . TL 1J ki, . hnmA fit fa.
