OSE RIGHT OF A WIFE. from the Woman's Journal. "John," said I one night to my hus band, a I pot y basket of sewing away preparatory to retiring. "John, a.4 yoa co down to-nioriow morning, I wish yoa would stop at .Mrs. West s 'door and leave her $5 for uie." Five dollar!" and my lord looked up quite astonishod. "For what." "Why, ahe is collecting money to aid that poeiety te is t-ecretary ol, and as I always felt interested in it, I told her I would give her $5. I said this with quite a hhow of as surance, though 1 really .felt quite uneasy as to the reception of my re quest, for John is rather notional in some of his ways; however. I had been cogitating some matter lately in my own mind, and determined to make a bold stand. . 'Well, Sarah." at length came the reply, "you need not count on my do ing any such thing, I don't approve of that society at all. and not one cent of my money shall go to help it." "I give it out of my money," said I, growing bolder. "I only asked you to leave it at her door tor me." "Your money! What do you mean?" "I miian what I say my money. Hate I no right to spend money as well as you? t don't approve of the Masons, but that does not hinder you from spending money and time for them as much as you have a mind." John looked at me quite amaed at my sudden outbreak. You see, I had always been the most aiuhtble ol wives. Then he broke out quite triumphantly, "Come, now, who earns the money that maintains this fa mi- ly?" "Yoa and I together," -aid I. "Together! Well, 1 should like to see the first eent you have earned in the 6even years we have been married. Together! Well, I call that pretty rich." My spirit were visibly declining under his ridicule, but I kept on as boldly as I could. W hen we were married you thought, or pretended to think, your self very harpy in assuming the care of board and wardrobe. I didn't ask it of you. You asked me to be your wife, knowing well all that meant." "As nearly as I remember," inter rupted John, "you were mighty ready to accept me." "Granted to save argument," said 1, coloring. "Well we stood up in church to gether, and you . promised to love, cherirh, etc., and so did I." "And obey, too," said I; "but you, in return, endowed we with all your worldly goods, and the minister pro nounced us man and wife; and so we - have lived.." "Yes." said John, complacently, ' and as I look back over the time, I think I have done what I agreed, and made a pretty good husband. I really think you ought to be thankful when you see how some wives live." "Well," said I, "I think I have been a domestic, prudent wife, and I don't feel one atom more of gratitude to you than you ought to feel to me for being a decent wife. Is it any more merit that you keep your mar riage iiromises than that I keep mine?' "Sarah, you are positively very acri monious to-night. Don't you think we had better go to bed?" "No, sir. Well, meantime we have laid by money to buy this house, and still have some in the bank." "Thanks to my hard work!" chimed in John. "More thanks," said I, to the per fect good health we have always had. We made mil these promises for bet- ter or ior worse. iow it nas ueen better for us all the : time. Had you been Biek or honest misfortune be fallen you, I should have managed some way to reduce our expenses so that you might feel the burden as lit tle as might be. Had I been sick, more care would have fallen on you. But we helped each other save, and now I claim an equal right with you in spending money." " Whew! . Why, that is treason. But go on." "If we occupied the respective posi tions of superior and subordinate, I should do what I do for you ior a fixed stipend, and no questions should be asked as to the use made of it. Being equals, I will not ask com pen sation as a-servent; but heeau.-e the contract we have made is lifelong and not easily. broken. I do not therefore call it very magnanimous in a prosper ous man to accept thase services and render in return only my board and the least amount that will creditably clothe me.' You see I was growing irate. John's temper, too, was evidently on the rise. "What do you mean by services? Housework? I am sure a home is as much lor your satisfaction as for mine; and I am sure the tailor does not leave much of my sewing for you to do." "I don't complain of housework nor of doing your sewing, but I do think the burden of little Johnny has fallen ou me. . . ? All. . t 11 - . X it striKes me, said ne, witn a provoking con. placency of tone, "that if you earned bis living you would have less to say about the burden falling on you." "John," said I. "answer me hon estly. Do you work any harder or any longer now than you did before be was born.' "I don't know as I do," said he; "I always worked hard enough." "Well, and so do I. But now as to Johnny. 1 presume you will allow yourself half owner of him, as the law allows you entire control over him. ilow much do you do tor him; I maintain him. I do my part." "No. John, you are wrong: you don't do your part. From the first you never have. Did not weary months go by in which you bore no part whatever of the burden.' ' "Well, that is curious complaining; what would you have me do? ' "You might have got a servant, in stead of letting all the housework fall on me; or you might have kept a horse so that I ;ould ride out and en joy the fine weather; but that is all past now." "I should say that it cost me enough for the doctor, nurse, etc., without talking about keeping a horse." "True, it cost enough; but lam talk ing about the division of the burden. Was the part you bore in the payment of those bills equal to my part in the matter? Would yoa have taken my place for that money if it were to have been paid you instead oi those who cared for you? Ithinkn jt." "Didn't I have all his clothes to buy?" "No, sir. I went without new clothes of any sort for a season, and the money saved from my. wardrobe supplied all that was needed; and ' I might add that all his clothes have been got in the same way." "W ell, really, I had no idea how much of a martyr you were. 'Next vou will be clothing me in the same way. How thankful I ought to be for so calculating a wife." "Now, in these two year," said'I, continuing in the face of his gneer, "all of the care and confinement conse quent on attending tb.2 child have fallen on m T havp mannered some way to accomplish my housework and sewing as I used. lean hardly think how it has been done. Did it ever occur to you to think how many times 1 have been to church f-ince he was born?" "Yon wonldn't sinoot man to take care of u baby, would you? That isn't a man' vnrt " . iY. ' ; "Wt it?" said I. bitterlv: "then I wouldn't have a baby. I have been to church just four times, and then some visitor had staid with Johnny, xiow many times did you ever get up in the niKht to soothe him when he has been pick and frettul?' ' "4'How do vou suppose. said he. "I could work by day if I di ay it 1 dido t get my night's sleepf - "Just tht'saroe way that I do when my night is broken, exactly." "Well. Sarah, what is the drift of all this talk, any way? for I don't see any nsc in prolonging it." "Well, then, it is my original state ment that as I did my part of the family labor and took all tbe care of Johnny, and you are a man in pros perous circumstances, I am entitled to as much money for that as if I were employed and paid by the mon:h for the same work, and I have a right to spend money for things that don't suit vou, if I please to do so; and I may "add," said I, with a sudden vehemence, "that it is mean and con temptibie in you to try to oppose or forbid my doing so." - John said no more. I saw by the look in his eyes that he was quite angry; and so was I. That was the first time in our married life that we failed to kiss each other good-night. Indeed, I felt guilty, though I hardly know why, but it was late before I fell asleep The next morning all was serene. No trace remained of the evening's storm, but-notshing more was said about - the obnoxious subscription. Next day I met Mrs. Woct, and she thanked me very much for doubling mv money. - "Dear John! He didn't mean to be unkind, but he had never Ptopped to think about such things. "When his next settlement came, and he slipped a 20 bill into my band and said, "That is for your private purse," I really thought he was the best hus band in the world. THE BF.(JIXNIX(J OF TH F FREE-SOIL PARTY. (ieneral Wilson Leading tbe Bolt from the Whls Xntiomal Convention In 1848. From the Springfield Republican. It was Genera Wilson, then a you ok man, and a popular orator of thrt Whig party of Massachusetts,who pronounced the first formal words of separation from that party, in order to establish the-free -soil organization, whieh, it will be remembered, was set in motion in that year, and at its first National Convention in Buffalo, on motion of Samuel J. Tilden, nomina ted Martin Van Buren for President and Charles Francis Adams for Vice President. General Wilson was a delegate from this State in the Whig National Convention and when it be came apparent that General Taylor, of Louisiana, was to be nominated for President, he arose and said: "I am opposed to the nomination of General Taylor, or to any other candidate not fully committed by his own acts to the Wilmot proviso; and it such a nomination is made, I shall leave this Convention, go home and unite with others in the support of one who shall be committed to the policy of free doml" Those were brave words; they embodied such sound advice as would, if the policy had been adopted, have made the Whig party the party of ireeuom, anu probably have arrested the civil war; but his remarks were received with hisses and shouts of derision. In order to silence the op position of the three delegates from Massachusetts Wilson, Allen and Alford it had been agreed. , in cau cus, to give the ,-Vice Presidency to a citizen of Massachusetts in the per son of Abbott Lawrence, and to this Judge Allen alluded when, coming to the support of Mr. Wilson, he said. amid the wildest excitement and con tinued interruptions: "The discip line of the South has again prevailed! It is evident the teims of union be tween the Whigs of the North and the Whigs of the South were the per petual surrender by the former of the nigh offices and powers of the Govern ment to their Southern confederates. To these terms, sir, I think the free States will no longer submit. I de clare to this Convention my belief that the Whig party is here and this day dissolved. , You, t have put an ounce too much upon the strong back of Northern endurance. You have even presumed that the State which led in the first revolution for liberty will now desert the cause tor the miserable boon of the Vice Presiden cy. Sir, Massachusetts will spurn the bribe." -Mr, Ashman, of Springfield, replied to Mr. Wilson, and declared that he did not speuk the voice of Massachusetts, and Mr. George Lunt, of Newburyport, declared that he had listened with indignation to the senti ments ol some of his colleagues, as he was quite sure Masachu.-etts would indorse the action of the Convention. Ol all the member? of the Convention, only Mr. Wilson and Mr. Allen then directly severed their connection with the WThig party. Determined to secure every advantage which the occasion offered. . of , conferring with their late associates who coincided with him in opinion, Mr. Wilson, after the nomination of laylor and fillmore was ratified, hired one of the ante rooms of the building, and that even ing invited the delegates and others opposed to the action of the Conven tion to meet with him and confer in reirard to the holding of a National Convention for the organization of a new party. Uniy fifteen persons re sponded to the call; but it was then and there decided that such a Con vention as Mr. Wilson indicated should be called to meet at Buffalo in August, and Joshua II. Giddings ami John C. Vauahan, of Ohio, and Charles Allen, of Massachusetts, were appointed to issue the call and make all needful 'arrangements. That was the first great step in the organization of the Free Soil party, and to Mr. Wilson belongs the high honor of a bold, heroic and successful leadership, which, after many trial and reverses, resulted in the triumph of "free-soil" rrineiples at the polls, but under an other name, in the election of Abra ham Lincoln. Alitor' Wealth. New York World, Nov. 25. It would beZdifficuIt to determine the extent, and wholly impossible to determine the value, of his property, either real or personal. It probably aggregates nearly UU,UUO,U0O. Mr. Astor paid more taxes on real estate than any other man in the country. He paid annually as taxes on his real property $500,000, which is one seven tieth of the whole amount of the tax collected annually in this city. The assessed value of his real estate is understood to be some $56,000,00, with a probable actual value of some $75.- 000,000. He owned real estate in every ward and in nearly every avenue and street in this city, and it was said of him that in every mile that he waited or rode he passed some build ings owned by him. His possession of real property was confined almost exclusively to this city, with the ex ception of his country seat, a tract of some bUU acres in the Township of lied Hook, in this State, and a few hundred acres of land in the West, which he toot in payment of debts. About one-sixth ol his real estate is locked up in long leases, some of which are expiring almost every day, while many will continue in full force and effect for many years to come. His property is all improved, and he does not own a single vacant lot. Before the War, a great deal of it was unimproved, but about 1861 he began the polioy, which has since been faith fully carried out of building as rapidly as possible, and of tearing down old rockeries and putting up plain but substantial business structures or dwelling houses in accordance with the character of the locality. In all his buildings he has exhibited that plaiuness and simplicity that have characterized the man and the family. At -one time he owued considerable property on Broadway, which he ha, however, gradually sold. The larger part of his real estate is in the Six teenth, Twenty first, and Twenty second wards. He is an extensive owner of property along the Bowery, through Thirty-fourth street, both east and west, and along Fifth, Sixth, j and Eighth avenues. The only two notable buildings owned by him aie the Astor House and the Astor Li brary, the latter of which is held by the Trustees of the library in trust tor the purposes indicated in the trust deed executed by himself and his fath er. In some streets he has built of recent years dwelling-houses of Port land stoue, while the ordinary red brick has been used for building in tended for business purposes. During the past few years he has not bought real estate so largely, but has principally been engaged in build ing or exchanging. In almost every volume of recorded deeds at the Re corder's office the name of Astor oc curs conspicuously, both in regard to the transfer of single lots and of whole blocks ol property. It occurs fre quently, also, in the transfer of prop erty as guardian in the Xiangdon and other large estates, showing that not only was he engaged in operations af fecting bis own property, but acting in a representative capacity in regard to Droiterty belonging to others. He was also heavily interested in all the railroads running out from this city in all directions. He Mas a leading stockholder in the New York Central, the Harlem & New Haven, the Hud son River, the New Jersey Central, the Transportation Company of New Jersey, and in a large number of oth er railroad companies. He has re fused for many years to become a Director in any of the roads, but his son, John Jacob, has been chosen as in a manner representing his own and his father's interests. FARM XOTES. He CliolemCaneea nnd Treatment. (Indiana Farmer. This disease is singularly fatal this season. In Boone county this State we arc told by a friend that the losses are great. We have already reported heavy losses by this disease elsewhere in this and other States. The great hog districts in Illinois are also great ly stricken with the disease in its most fatal form. Of the CAUSES OF THE DISEASE, a writer in the National Live Stock Journal says they are obscure, bnt as it is more prevalent in low and un drained localities than on high and well drained soil, it is considered to be due mainly f rom miasmatic and malarious emanation. Confinement in filthy sties, impure drinking water, and want of change in food, etc., are also amongst the causes. We are convinced that many animals of this class are annually lost from the effects of improper food, or from living in an atmosphere surcharged with poison ous effluvia, the product of animal or vegetable decomposition. Decompos ing substances, both animal and vege table, corn that has undergone a change from long keeping or exposure to damp, and which is loaded, per haps, with the sporules of poisonous fungi; brine from the meat tub these and other similar substances are of ten given to pigs as food, and in many instances have been known to cause very great losses. Much that we have seen convinces us of the neces sity of more attention being paid to the quality of the food of these ani mals than is generally being done, and also to the nature of their lodgings, as well as the air they breathe. TREATMENT. . The treatment is most unsatisfac tory, owing to the acute nature of the disease; in fact all remedies are use less when not administered as soon as the first symptoms appear, When the disease breaks out in a herd, the animals should be kept on low diet, have plenty of exercise and fresh air. In the early stage of the disease, cold water sluicings, often repeated, have proved beneficial, and so has the method of burying in the earth in a cool and dark place. For this pur pose a hole is dug, sufficiently large and deep to admit Mr. Pork sidewise (the legs being previously tied with a sott straw band): the body is then cov ered with a sufficient quantity of earth and grass turt, leaving the bead tree; and in order to support the head, a grass turf is laid under the snout. Before burial several injections con sisting of cold water with vinegar, are thrown into the rectum. In order to keep the surrounding earth constantly cool, cold water is, every half hour, to be let on it. The animal remains thus buried until it recovers, which, in successful cases, happens within six, twelve or eigh teen hours. Hog cholera is treated in many different ways, each having its advocates. Some people have seen good effects from bleeding in the earliest stages of the disease. Kmetics and purgatives, in connection with lukewarm injections of salt water with vinegar, are very strongly recommen ded. In the beginning of the disease, success has also attended the admin, istration of ao emetic, such as white hellebore and i ecacuanah, of each two parts; tartar emetic one part; mix and give a small pig a scruple, and a larger one bait a drachm, thrown dry upon the root of the tongue; this to be followed up by purgatives and clysters. Purgative to consist of Epsom salts, one. two and three oun ces, according to the size and age of the animal, administered in broth or swill from a Itottle. Exercise, fresh air and sluicing the annual over with cold water are measures to be rec ommended. Animals that recover unless well treated, continue to suffer from partial paralysis, or from rheu matic inflammation ot the joints. Economy in Feed in if Kloek. New York Weekly Sun. To raise and gather sufficient food to keep a number of cows, sheep or horses, through four to six months of Winter, requires no small amount ot labor and money, and our farmers have to make close calculations in this matter, or find the balance on the wrong side ot the ledger. When the country was new and the land rich enough to produce bountiful crops without the application ot manures, the kinds ot food costing the least la bor were preferred; consequently good hay and grain answered every purpose and practising economy by feeding anything else was seldom thought ol by the well-to-do farmer. But of late years, hay, straw, and oats have be come cash articles, even far back in the country, and hundreds of miles from our larger cities, and this change of circumstances naturally leads the farmer to count more closely the cost of keeping his stock. If a cow will consume two tons of hay during the Winter, and this is worth twenty dol lars per ton, it does not require much figuring to arrive at a definite conclu sion in regard to what may be expec ted in the way of profits. Of course it would not be economy for the farm er to sell all his richest and best fod der, and then endeavor to keep his stock through Winter on the poorest. Still, by the application ot an in creased amount of labor in preparing a second-rate article, its value tor food may frequently le largely in creased. It is here that economy may be practised, and is, to a consid erable extent, by our most thorough and thriving farmers. Hay at twenty to thirty dollars per ton is very dear food, but it is so convenient for hand ling or feeding out that the owners of stock dislike to dispense with it, even it it does cost more than they can really afford to pay. The same may be said of oats: but convenience goes a great way in creating a demand, es pecially with those who are not com pelled to practise strict economy. But farmers who reside near good markets may turn many a penny to the profit side of their farm accounts, by disposing of their most saleable and readily handled produce, and then using those oi an opposite char acter for their cwn stock. The coars er kinds of forage plants will answer as well as the finer if artificially pre pared, by cutting up and steaming, adding meal, shorts, or bran, and giv ing roots at the same time. Hunga rian grass, millet, cornstalks, and straw become first-rate food for stock when properly prepared by cooking or steaming. We know that there is much prejudice existing among farm- ers in regard to grinding, cutting, and steainiiig food for their stock, but we believe it is mainly in consequence of the extra labor required, and not from any reason to apprehend injury to the animal. Coarse food made palatable and easy to digest by such F recesses as we have named is not ikely to be injurious, even if it is in a slightly unnatural condition. The experiments ot our most scientific ag riculturists show that it is economy to make the food of domestic animals as digestible as possible, without de stroying its nutritive properties, and farming is carried to its greatest per fection, and is most profitable, when these processes are most in vogue. Our farmers must learn to practise economy by saving, not wasting, the coarser kinds ot farm produce which have to a great extent been consid ered of little or no value. More root crops should be grown, and the straw, stack utilized instead of being left to rot down for manure, as is still-done over a large extent of country. Let the steam boiler be set up aud be more extensively used for preparing food for stock, and better results will surely follow, especially in the older States, where all kinds of farm pro duce command good prices. Few fanners t-eem to know how little food will keep an animal healthy, and in good fiesh, if that little is put in the condition to be all appropriated to the animal's use, and not pass off undi gested. Top-Dressing; Meadows. Michigan Farmer. The results of a single top-dressing on eight plots of nearly half an acre each of sandy warm soil of our State Agricultural College Firm exhibited the following facts at the end of three years: The top-dressing was applied in 1864, and the grass was cut twice each season in lh64 and 1865 and once in 1866. The produce of each cutting and of each lot was weighed separately and a perfect record kept. The re sults fof the four seasons were as fol lows: On the plot to which no ma nure or. fertilizer was applied the total weight of hay yielded per acre was 8,740 pounds. Where two bushels of plaster per acre was applied the yield .er acre was 13,226 pounds, a gain of 4,484 pounds. WThere five bushels of wood ashes were applied the yield per acre was 12,907 pouuds, a gain of 4,165 pounds. Where three bushels of salt was sown per acre, the yield was 13,969 pounds, a gain ier acre of 5,227 pounds. WThere 20 loads ot muck per acre was laid on, the yield per acre was 13,816 pounds, a gain ol 5,074 pounds. Where 20 loads of horse manure was laid on, the yield was 14,6S6 pounds, a gain of 6,224 pounds. These are results which in dicate that there are fertilizers which will produce as good results as plas ter. For instance, the plaster yielded a gain of 51 per cent, while the horse manure give an increase of 71 per cent., or nearly a ton more grass per acre in the three years. Iforwea. Can be educated to the extent of their understandings as well as chil dren, and can be easily damaged or ruined by bad management. We be lieve that the great difference found in horses as to vicious habits or re liability comes more from the differ ent management of men than from variance ot natural disposition in the animals. Horses with high mettle are more casil educated than those of less or dull spirits, and are more sus ceptible toe ill training, and conse quently may be as good or bad, ac cording to the education they receive. Horses with dull spirits are not by any means proof against bad manage ment, for in them may often be found the most provoking obstinacy; vicious habits of different characters that render them almost entirely" worth less. Could the coming generations of horses in this country bo kept from their days of colt-hood to the age of five years in the hands of good, care ful managers, there would .be seen a vast difference in the general charac ters of the noble animals. A Hnn or the Old Sea.Kingr. A London journal writes thus of a Norwegian, who seems to have lost nothing- of the indomitable courage and energy of his old Norse ancestors: "Perhaps there is no greater test of heroic courage than a voluntary en counter with great perils alone, where an, escape from those perils has been opened, of which others have availed themselves. Such heroism has been recorded this week in the case of a Norwegian Captain, Captain Adder Hansen, who, on the 7th of October, left Gefie with a cargo of iron and deals for England, and whose bark encoun tered, on the 19th of October, so fear ful a gale that all the pumps.were disa bled, the ship' side injured, and a great deal of the deck-load washed away. On the 20th of October a smack came in Bight, and Captain Hansen's crew, not believing the vessel could live, left him with his bark rolling most fearfully. The Captain remained alone, in the hope of getting his bark into Grimsby, in which he finally suc ceeded. Alone he managed to set the foresail and mainsail, and to light the side-lights and the binnacle-light, and then steered toward the west. He was so fatigued that he several times fell down from sheer weariness, and during the night he had several squalls. The cabin was full of water, which did much damage, as it rolled with the rolling of the vessel, and, when he got the bark into Humber, Captain Hansen's strength was all spent. That seems to us, In its way, a greater feat, be cause a lonelier feat, than many a pilot-boat rescue, in which the imme diate peril was far more threatening. The courage of a group of associates is always much greater than the sum of the courage which each individual in the group would separately ex hibit." How to Sweep. Sweeping, for a well woman, is one of the best kinds of exercise, It calls into play especially the muscles of the upper extremities and chest, and in deed, it is a pretty good "thorough exercise," almost too strong for any woman with a weak back, though this depends very much on what is to be swept. A painted floor and Canton matting sweep easily; an ingrain car pet is harder; a rag carpet harder still; while Brussels and velvet are "awful." Well, then, in any case, cover your head, and, if it is in the parlor or sitting room, cover your furniture and books, dampen your broom, let it stand ten to twenty min utes, and then sweep carefully, but persistently, n the corners insert your broom repeatedly (but not fran tically) until quite clean. Heavy car pets are best swept with a quick short str,oke. In any case bring the broom towards you or eveu with you; do not flirt it in front of you. That motion kicks up a dust which is bad for the lungs. Some things, like straw, rav el lings, and bits of paper are best picked up with the hand or a small broom, to which they readily cling, and may lie removed with the other hand. To conclude, have as few car pets as possible. They are dirty, un wholesome, and expensive. Painted or oiled floors and Uanton matting are better. When Louise M. Coffin returned from the Sandwich Isjands.two years ago, she was accompanied by a young native girl. Miss Mary E. Torbert, who visited this country to finish her education.

The conjurers and acrobats of India are a tribe by themselves, resembling the gypsies of Europe, and, being sub tle and crafty, are despised, yet feared, by the common people. They are won derfully expert in the perform an of their tricks and feats of strength, some of which remain inexplicable, even to the intelligence of the acute European. One of the most striking of their ruses that of the basket and the child Is thus described: A child 7 or 8 years old, standing up right in the basket, writhes in con vulsions under the influence of music, and disappears slowly into the Interior, which is barely large enough to contain it. Scarcely is It inside when the mu sicians throw themselves upon it, close the lid, and pierce the basket in every direction with their long knives. They 6trike with all their might, until, the banitH.o giving way, the basket is com pletely flattened, and seems no longer capable of containing anything. They then re-form the circle and resume their chant; to which a voice now re sponds from the forest. The sound gradually approaches, and at last seems to come from the basket, which be comes more and more distended; the lid is removed, and the child springs out. The top-trick is also exceedingly puz zling. The juggler gives the top a vig orous whirl, and phu-es it on the point of a stick balanced upon his forehead or nose. In this position, without any further interference from the juggler, the top suspends its spinning, and re news it again, at the bidding- of the spectator. These alternate movements are repeated during several seconds, greatly to the astonishment of behold ers. It is not so strange that the top should pause, but that it should resume its whirling without any fresh impetus seems to be pure witchcraft. There is no mechanical contrivance discoverable in either the top, or the stick on which it plays. Among the surprising feats of the acrobats are those of the rope-dancers. One performer steps upon the rope with naked feet, and a pile of jars on his head. Having reached the centre, he causes the rope to swing rapidly to and fro, maintaining his balance by moving his body in harmony with the oscillations of the rope, at the same time holding his head motionless, in order not to lose off the jars. Another acrobat walks skillfully along the rope with buffalo horns tied perpendicularly to the feet. A wonderful exhibition of jugglery Is executed with swords and sashes bor rowed from the spectators. The con jurer wearing the scantiest apparel, so that his bust and limbs are wholly visi ble, presses the sharp point against his breast until the blade bends into a half circle. Or he places himself on his back, and, laying on his chest a thin leaf of the betel-plant, his acolyte strikes a heavy blow down upon it with a sharp sabre, which cuts the leaf in two. Again he throws fresh. cocoanuts up into the air, and lets them fall upon his head, whereon they are smashed as upon a rock. "Lastly," says M. Itousselet, who witnessed the scene, "a wagon was brought, a heavy vehicle which two oxen could scarcely drag. One of the guard's lances was solidly fastened- to the shaft, so as to present its point at the extremity, and a certain number of the common people were invited to get into the wagon, which the juggler, plac ing his naked skull against the point of the lance, pushed forward, thus loaded, for about ten paces. After this feat, of course, every one wanted to inspect his skull. The man complacently showed his head to each of us, and we were able to assure ourselves that he had no oth er cuirass than the tick skin which Na ture had given him for his share, but which nevertheless was stout enough to resist a pressure that would have pierced through the body of an ele phant." Many acrobats go through their per formances upon the top of a poie which Js held upright by four ropes, the ends of which are bimply a hole. Some water is then poured into the hole, the earth Is stamp ed down, and, presto! the pole stands like a rock, and may be shaken with the united strength of several men, without loosening the ropes. Little girls are often included among tne per formers, and they will roll themselves into balls, bend themselves back, and conduct themselves generally as though made of India-rubber. They thread needles with thir toes, their eyes blindfolded; and with their eyes pick up straws stuck upright in the ground. Or they lift weights with their eyes, a metal button being placed under each eyelid in such a way that It adheres to the pupil. To these buttons, strings are attached, connected with weights, sometimes very heavy; and these are lifted a little way from the ground with out any help from the hands. This spectacle, however, has a cruel look that makes it painful. 9 Ilow Adam Poe WtilppedMHlK foot. Cincinnati Saturday Night. "Big Foot," chief of the Wyandottes, who flourished (his scalping knife) on the banks of the Ohio during the pio neer days, was an Indian of immense stature and powerful frame, who re ceived his name on account of the ex traordinary size of his foot, that organ measuring more inches to the foot than the most liberal table in long measure can possibly allow. In addition to big feet he was" afflicted with corns, so that his shoemaker was compelled to make his moccasins on a bag of hickory nuts In order to secure a fit. One day Big Foot, who was a sort of bully about home, attended a log roll ing at a neighboring settlement wher he met Adam Poe, an athletic young paleface, who had recently come there to settle, so he thought he would just settle him. He was an old settler him self Big Foot was. An opportunity finally presented Itself for picking a quarrel with Poe. They were lifting together on the same log, when Poe, although he had allowed twenty-two inches to the foot, accidentally trod upon Big Foot's corns. Big Foot began to stamp and rave, and swore he could whip Poe "at the drop of the hat." Those were his precise words. Poe, who was a good-natured fellow , and not at all quarrelsome, stood his abuse for some time; but when he in sinuated that his clothes didn't fit him, and taunted him with having a cross eyed sister in fact, pohpohed at the entire Poe family, hla blood was up, and jerking off " his coat, he yelled, "Come on, red skin, and, durn my but tons, if I don't grind you up into injun meal to slop my cow with!" "That's me," said Big Foot, taking off his cravat and paper collar, and tying his suspenders around him. A ring was quickly formed' and the red-man and pale-face glared at each other from their respective corners. "A stand-up fight or rough-and-tumble?" said Poe. "I don't care A-dam Poe!" yelled Big Foot, and at it they went at a run-and-catch. It was about the biggest single'hand fight ever known. They kicked up such a dust very little could be seen of the combatants. At intervals. Big Foot's big feet would be seen to flash through the air as Adam dextrously stood him on his head; and then Poe would be seen to rise about ten ( 10) feet in the air, poised on the toe of that Big Foot. Fragments of moccasins, portions of buckskin breeches, arrow heads, feath ers, Indian ear-rings, (Poe made that Indian's ear-ring) suspender buttons, scalp-locks, leggins, etc., filled the air. Big Foot howled and Poe raved, (every body has heard "Foe's Ravin.") For a long time the issue seemed doubtful, but after a time all was still, the dust cleared away and disclosed Poe leaning on his rifle, whose stock was broken, panting badly, his test pants being ru ined in the fray. At his feet lay Big Foot, dead. "I stood ready to give him a fair fight, gougein' in," said Poe as soon as he could recover his breath, "but the pesky critter drew a knife on me and I fixed him." A coroner's jury set on the body as many as could be seated on it, when a placard was put up. "standing room only" who brought in a verdict of "Death from t'vo big feet." They buried Big Foot where he fell, all except his feet, which would stick out. Finally they raised mounds over them, and this day two Indian mounds mark the last resting place of Big Foot. m o - The gale on the lakes, Sunday night and Monday of .last week, was quite disastrous. Several schooners went ashore, and several were wrecked. The Mary Perew sunk, and the crew were rescued by a boat from Cheboy gan. When they were taken off, the deck was under water and the rigging was a mass of iee. Lake Huron is cov ered with Ice. The schooner F. G. Jenkins is missing, and it is feared she foundered in the lake, with all on board. SEWS SUMMARY. Pere Hyacinthe will revisit the United States in 1876.

"Coal-Oil Johnny," instead of work ing as a laboring man on a railroad, is at present building a fence around a two-hundred apre farm, which he lately purchased In California. He saved $16,000 out of the general wreck, and is doing well. Dr. Davis and wife, of Ottawa, sen tenced to be hanged for causing the death, by malpractice, of Jane Yaughan, of Gilmour, gave informa tion which led to the arrest of the se ducer, and their sentence was com muted to imprisonment for life on the 30th ult. How to J udg-e m Town. The Jefferson City, Missouri, Journal tells this: About a week ago a gentleman from Tennessee, representing a capital of $20,000, in search of a good locality In which to engage in business, gave us a call, and after stating his mission West, asked to look at our paper. We handed him the morning Journal, and to our surprise he did not stop to read our newsy local "pick-up," or our at tractive editorial page, but turned at once to our advertising columns, and commenced counting our advertisers and measuring their space. "Well," said he, glancing up from the paper, "is that alj? Is, that the bus iness of this town?" "Oh, no," said we, "here is the Tribune with a few advertisements that don't appear in the Journal." lie then counted two additional local business advertisements in the Tribune, and again looked up, with the remark: "And that's all, is it? Why, you haven't got near so much of a town as I thought you had." And then we explained to him that we have a great many business men who do not advertise. "They are not business men to hurt if they don't advertise," -a his answer, We eould not contradict him, and we were powerless to vindicate the claims of our city. He left us saying if he had time he would look around, but thought this was no place for him. This is only one instance, and a fact. LEGAL NOTICES. SHEBirrtl HALE.
