of Naples, and the Neapolitan General who re
pontjuered Bicily, and kept th King upon his
throne until hia death: . ,
The General Filangieri waa deeply embar
raassdln bis finances, and only awaited the
last moment of desperation to blow his brains
out. Some one reported to the King what was
about to happen. : "Filangieri I" said he,
"true, I bav not teen him at Court for many
days;" and 'an. order was forthwith given to
bring him alive or dead. When he entered
the oabinet of the King, Ferdinand Insisted on
knowing tbe ex sot amount 01 pis debts.
Filangieri hesitated. The King conjectured
his cause of difficulty and began to guess :
"Com," h said, i'it it six hundred thousand

' The General looked. r r - r.

gradually rose step by step to fifteen hundred

relieved himself by an 4Qif," like a man who
had juat mounted nine pair of stair.. History

A Mothsb's Ikflumc". Jn a lecture re
cently delivered by "Grace Greenwood," at
Boston, on ''Ileroism," she referred to an In
cident that took place ' at the burning of a
steamer on one of tbe Western Lakes:
Among the few passengers whose courage
and presence of mind rose superior to the
perils and horrors of the night, waa a mother
who succeeded in saving her two children by
means of a floating settee. While they were
in the water the mother saw a man swimming
toward the settee, and, as he was about to
grasp it, she cried, "Don't take It away from
my poor little children!". The man made no
answer, yet tne appeal straok noma, tor, oy
the light of th flaming vessel she could aee
that his face was convulsed by the straggle
between the mighty primal instinct of nature
and something better and holier. It was but
tor a moment, tie threw up t. is hands with
a groan of renunciation, flung himself over
backward, and went down!"

riaoa. The Mmitmt ofa tArmet give th
following description of the Emperor of Mo
rocoo's treasure-house at Meqoines : ' ': '
In the middle of the garden stands a fori
res. with a trlcle wall, nerfeotlv armed and
defended. In th central inoioaure . rises a
atone building, lighted only from the roof. It
ia entered through three iron door, one after
the other. The pavement of the interior is
bldck marble, and at one end I a large open
tngi through which the gold and silver eoln,
bullion and jewela are conveyed to the tress
ure below, ibis last mentioned place m an
extensive vault, divided Into compartments of
squal site, In each of whioh is tbe value of a
million piastros. The net produce of the
taxes is longed in tne treasury every three
months. 1 The ) Emperor himself; when at
Mequinea, is present on the occasion ; but in
his absence he names throe of the chief officer,
of hia houaehold to attend for him, knowing
well tnat mutual distrust will scaroely allow
them to concert a robbery, and if they should
do so, they would soon betray each other, or
be denounced by th blaok guardians of the
place. When the Imperial treasury was first
established, th money waa kept In, large
earthen jarsj but on oneoccaaioa the contents
of ten were abstracted, and tbe robbery con
cealed by filling tbe jars with earth and cov
ering the top with a few gold plea. The
theft was tSot discovered immediately;, but a
black who had teen tbe robber in the act,
and had been nearly murdered by them and
left for dead, afterward recovered and gave in
formation against them. The Emperor ordered
the ten thieves to be decapitated and directed
that their heads should be Disced in the ten
jars whlob they had emptied, as a warning to
others. These vases ere still m tbe treasury,
placed on marble pedestralt. Muler-Ismail's
successor determined to adopt a . different ar
rangement, and built the vaults new existing.
Th Emperor Muley Soleiman, well known for
his cruelty, was acoustomed, after the quarterly
deposits, to have all the blacks put to deatb
who hd been engaged in the operation
Alild er Rhaman, his successor, abolished that
atrocious usage, but he decided 'that the
blacks employed In arranging the money in
the vaults should never leave the bulldincr.
It would, therefore, be useless for them to
steal the treasure, as they are separated from
tha rest of th world, and could neither spend
or conceal it. .
Tai Quality op aDbokkabd's Braisj. The

Hyrtl, by far tbe greatest anatomiat of the
age, used to say that be oould distinguish in
the darkest room, by one stroke of the scalpel,
tbe brain of the inebriate from' tbat Of the
person who had lived soberly. ' Now and then
be would congratulate his class upon the pos
session of a drunkard's brain, admirably
fitted, from Its hardness and more complete
preservation, for the purposes of demonstration .
When . th anatomiBt wished to preserve a
human brain for any length of time, heefleots

Ah Amiable Gahblbb on a Labh Soai.b.
There is a noted policy dealer ii New York
who bss a passion for smashing faro banks.
He puts $90,000 (bills and checks) in hit
pocket, and doubles up till he lays out the
nank or himself. Ia the long run his losses
and gains are about equal. My informant,
who saw Mr. fritter away bis entire pile
the other night, says he never saw a philos
opher till then. The policy man, - with hit
pockets empty, (be always stops at $50,000,)
retired from the table laughipg, and confident
in his better luok next time. He indulges in
his strange and expensive caprioe (which he
can afford by reason of hia ituuiena fortune,)
merely for the "fun of the thing." It far

Slaughter to bs Prevented ok Railroads,
The praotioe of jumpiog on the front of the
passenger railroad cars should not only be
prohibited, but be prevented by rendering; it
Impossible, Gates to close the platform against
passengers, and whioh oould be opened when
baskets or other artioles received on th front
platform, are to be placed there, would keep
any one from monntlng into the oar in front.
It ia idle to tell people that they risk their
live oy trying to get at tne cars while in mo
tion from tbe front platform. , Jiiaob one fee
lieves that he, has activity enough to aooom
pliBh it, and wilt risk tha trial, though he
gains nothing by doing so.h The rear of the
car it the proper place of entry, and this be

A Mar Siexb Death oir Account or
Ba0THBRrs Loss. We have mentioned th
death of Wm. G. Copeland, of New Orleans,
by thehandsof apolioeman, but th Coroner's
inquest rendered a verdict of aooidentai
hooting, . The testimony went to show that

the part of Evlngton to wrest it from him, the
pistol wen toff and killed him almost instantly.
Deceased said frequently that if seme one did
not take hii life he would, as he did not wish
to live any longer that hii brother waa dead,
and he wai the oaly one he tared for.
