A BraVE Man.?Some newspaper has late ly unearthed a story of mob law iu lieury co., Kentucky, in 1859, a story which will bear coo densation, and which should godowu to poster ity, describing an example to be imitated, and a scene to be iuimortrlized. In 1859 there resided in the county named several brothers bearing the name of Henry, one of whom was charged with murder. He was acquitted upon trial, but the mob was dissatisfied with the verdict ai>d demanded that not only the man charged with the crime but all his brothers should leave the county. One of the brothers thus unjustly ban ned was slow to leave, and in const queues was at-suiled, being shot at and narrowly escaping with his life. His wife and children were afterwards taken to him by a young man named Ilunly. Then the mob demanded that Ilunly should leave the region. Ilunly went to his house and told his aged parents of the situation. They decided not to obey the mob and barricad ed the bouse. Ou the next day the mob came,twenty masked men aud numbers of respectable citizeos who dare not resist. The mob rode up to the house aud demanded the bucry of youug Ilunly. The old mother appeared at a window and replied that her son had committed no offense; he had situ ply aided au innocent woman and children; he would not be driven out of the country like a criminal; she and tier husbaud were prepared to die with him. Then she bowed and retired. The mob crowded forward, but there was a man among the spectators to be heard. As the old mother ceased talking he came forward with tears on bis face and said : "Ot all fortunes in life there is nothing like its fortunate ending. A man should be esteemed fortunate who finds an answer to the old Methodist praper, 'Lord, give us a good time to get out of the world.' I may live a hundred years without finding another opportunity to so happily end my life. I am blessed 1 My prayer is answered! 1 will die with these people 1" Then drawing his pis tol the man (his name was Pollard) placed his back to the door and his face to the mob. The effect was grand. Hesitating citizens, lacking but the nerve to oppose ruffianism, rushed to Pollard's support. The mob fled for their lives before the desperate resolve ot the men before them, and Ilunly and his family were saved. Pollard's name is still a synonym for brave manhood in Henry oounty, and his glorious example has done not a little good. Could a grander speech be coic^ivuU than this brief one of six clean senteooes ? And is not the story one to become immortal? The rapid progress of the Japanese in the me chanic arts is illustrated in a letter from a gen tleman io Yeddo, whioh has been received by the foreman of the Government biodery at Washington. Two years ago, when tho gentle man, who is under engagement with the Ja panese Government to established a book-bind ery at Yeddo, arrived io thecountry, he found a printing office in full operation, but no bind ery. He made application for twenty hands, uieo who had no knowledge whatever of the trade, but by dint of perseverance and hard work he has tought them to fold, sew and for ward small work, and several of them, he says, can dow finish very well,and forward both blank and letter-press a good deal beeter tham many old journeymen io the United States, There is a bee-hive on the eastern slope of the San Fernando range iD Los Angeles coun ty, which men have tried several limes to cap ture and have as often failed. It is io a rift which penetrates the rock to a depth of 160 feet. The opening is 3U feet long and 17 feet wide, with two passages. The bees come and ho in solid columns about one foot io diameter. Efforts have been made to detceod to the store of honey in the rock, but the u?en were intari bly driven back and one man lost h s lite. The hive has been kuown four years, aud it ii esti mated that there cannot be less than eight or tun tons of honey in it. A man who lives in a cabin not far from the spot gets more houey than his family can use from a small aper ture io the rock. He has a hooey fountain at his door. Blackberry Wine.- Take a five or ten gal lon keg, cieauae it thoroughly. Take only ripe berries, crush them in a wine or cider press, io a cloth. After expressing the wine, straio carefully, and to oaeh quart of juice add three pounds of best yellow sugar and as much water as will make a gallon, and io this proportion for any quantity. Put the outire mixture in a kettle, aud bring it to boil, skim, and whon cool fill the keg three-fourths full and let it ferment for one week ; then fill up the cask with fresh ly-made liquor and when done fermenting bung up tight, set away in the cellar, where it should remain until February or March, when it should be racked off, the keg scalded out, and the li quor either returned to the keg to remain per manently or bottled for use. General Spinner was interviewed not long ago by a newspaper man, in which he said be didn'i believe in bail as a means of protecting the government from peculation. In reply as to his remedy, Gen. S. said : "Well, if I bad luy way I would fix it. Why I would make short work of it. l)--n it, I would kill a man who would steal. He ought to be strung ri^hi up. The people of this country elect men; yes, elect?d?n rascals to office just because they give bail. 'I hey say, "Oh, we know the man is a rascal, but then he gives bail." 1 don't believe io bail. My remedy is the bast one." Lived it Down.?An honest blacksmith was once grossly lusulted and his character in famously defauied. Friends advised him to seek redress by means of law, but to one and all ho replied, "No, I will go to my forge and there in six months I will have worked out such a name as all the judges, law courts and lawyers in tho world could uot give me." He was right. It is by houest labor, manly cour age, and a conscience void of offence that we assert our true digoity and prove our honesty and respectability. "Well, Mr. Miller," said a Yankeo, proudly to a travelling Scot, as they stood by the Falls of Niagara, "Is it not wonderful? Io your couutry you never saw anything like that." "Like that I" said the Soot; "there's a far niair wonderful eoncern no twa miles fra whar I was born." "Indeed 1" exclaimed Jonathan with an air of. supercilious skepticism, "and pray what kind of concern may it be?" "We'll, man," replied Sawney, "it's a peaoock with a wooden leg."
