All sounds affud bim delight; even the crying of a chi'd causes hiin to dance abuut in a s'ate of'ec'tasy. When at home he olteu li ui;d pioohed his brothers aod sistc-rs to ui :ke them emit cries of pain. It kept away from a piano, he w.ill beat against the wall, arai; chairs about tlfe room, and m ike all s >rts of noises. When iu London a flute was pro cured for hiui of a very complicated pattern, and having tweoty two keys. He fr. quently rises up at night aod play.-: this iostrumeDt, imitating upou it all sons .ifsfuods which he may b< ar at 'hi. time. Ouee when the agei.t attempted to m;:ke him .-.top playing the piano :d a high-toned hotel at three o'cLck in the moiuicg. Tom seized him and threw him through the door. Iu Washington he threw a mau down stairs who came into his room. When at home iu Gecrgia he lives iu a build ing abiut two buodred yards from the hou.-e, and thcio remains alone with his piano, play ing all day and night, like one possess, d madness. Bad weather has au efieet upon his music. In cloudy, rainy seasons, he piay> t?re music id minor clu>rds; aod when ti.e >uu chines and the birds >iuir, he indulgesin waitz.s aud light music. Som- times he will hammer away Jor hours, producing the urst horrible diseords imaginable. Suddenly a change coiu -s over him, and be indulges io magniticeut burs'8 of harmony taken from the best productions of the masters, Since his childhood he ha-; been au idiot, i?nd b<; played nearly a> well ar the age ol seven as he docs now; but d >w bis re pertoire i.- mueh larger, as he em play anything he has ever beard.

He doub;i'.s< knows a- well what he is doing aud wiy he is doing it and what he means to do mxi as any editorial gu-s.-inii machiuc in the country. The demo cracy mean success, and are determined to win it if th'-y possibly c:?u d > so; and they are too si:r-. w l to quirrel, too pluck)* to turn the white feat her, and too hungry, to abandon a chance s> long as the giui; is iu Mgiit. And the re publicans may as well make up their minds iir>t as last that they have not to beat by hard wo; k or be beaten, and nothing short of the hardest sort of work and the greatest possible union and harmony will prevent their being very handsomely whipped." A Sensible Voung Man.?The scumble young nun is now living neai Council B uff-, Iowa. Not long ago lie became involved iQ a quarrel with do less thao five difKrent men, ai.d ohalleuged each one of tbeui to mortal ouibat. All accepted, and were upon the gr und at once.

They struggled over the subject tor about a quarter of an hour, the champion sittiog on a log as umpire, and when the question was finally settled,the "best man" c mid have been whipped by anybody,;<ud Wi-u't ready to fichi. The eiialleugcr wa ked ofi with all the hounr*, and was pr<>ud aud liappy. 't his i> the story, aud is probably a lie. A Contrast. ?Tne iviaimond State says.
