Look to Your TitIe$I
TT may not be generally known that the tit'o to
a. a largo portion or the Keal Kstnto in Wood
Connty is defective but such is the fact. These
defects arise from misdescription of the prop
erty, informal execution and acknowledgment
of coni-evances. unrecorded deeds, tax anlea nnd
titles, judgment liens, irreguiaiities in sales under
execution, mortgages, xo.
Hundreds of mortgages and other Incumbrances
upon lands remain uncancelled on the records,
although the debts thev Were given to secure, hare
probably been paid, thousands of tax sales have
been made, iueuiiibei imr lauds nnd lots, innnr of
wnun nave ueen reuei-med but not cancelled, but
a large number ptill exist as valid liena on ihc prop
erly sold. Over 1,500 of the deeds on our county
records are either erroneously executed, or
wrongly recorded most of the errors undoubtedly
occur In the nuking of the deeds, but many in the
recording of them.
In view of these facts, wo are preparing, and
have nearly completed, at great expense and im
mense labor, a complete n Mr act of the title to
every tract of land and town lot in the county,
giving the original entries and purchases from toe
State and United States, date of the deeds, kind
ol conveyance, consideration, fall description of
the land, where deed executed, dato of record,
bonk and page where recorded, number of wit
nesses, number of seals, amount of revenue stamp,
So complcto will these Abstracts be, that If
every book in the Recorder's Ollico were destroyed,
an accurate description of every instrument re
corded tliero, could be procured from our otllce.
With these facilities we are prepared, on the
shortest notice, to give all necessary information,
and written abstracts of title, at reasonable prices,
to all who may desire the same.
Willi these Abstracts before us, we a'so have
facilities for preparing conveyances of every de
scription, unequalled by any other office in the
county, and which will be mado out by us at usual
rates. We will give special attention to remedying
defects in titles, removing incumbrances, procuring
lost deeds, getting original patent or copies of
same, and perfecting titles generally.
Every owner of Real Estate should know the
full history of his title to same, and that it is cor
rectly placed nn the record; and every prudent
man will refuse to buy any lands or lots without
flrKt. dicing fully satisfied tliat thu title to same is
perfect, clear and unimciiinliured ; and these facts
c in be ascertained from us at a small expense.
Our charges will be as follows ;
For an examination of tho title to a lot or tract
of land, with verbal opinion on same, from $1 to
$5, according to value and number of transfers.
For a full abstract of the title, with written
opinion on same, ti and over, according to number
of conveyances of the land, and labor in making
out same. .. .
A reasonable deduction will be made to appli
cants, for chain of title to two or more tracts, and
also to attorneys nnd agents who make frcqueut
luai"s calls upon us.

The Castalian Fount.
The midnight hour hath eomo
With deep and silent gloom,
As a modern tender of tho bar
Sat thinking in his room
Without the atonn was raging,
The winds were fierce an! loud,
And darkened was the night,
By many a lowering cloud.
A fire burned hiightty in the grato
And gleamed upon the wall,
And o'er the villain's sallow face,
Dark visions seemed Ut fall.
Strange thoughts disturbed his rest,
And passing through bis mind,
lie saw as in a troubled dreaui,
Spectres of every kind.
Ah I to his disordered vision
There rame the scenes of years,
The mother and the orphan
With eyes suffused with tears.
The poor,' degraded father
With look of demon wild,
The anguish of the loving wifo
And sorrow of the child.
Ho saw a widowed mother,
With up. lifted hand to heaven,
Tra ving that Ood would rest no
The child He'd kindly given.
He saw the drunkard's' Willi
O'erwhelnied wiih anxious fears.
And viewed impressed upon her faco
Tho suffering of yea's.
Next a brother's bleeding form,
All ghastly pale and wan,
Beseeching him to give
At least one glass again.
One glass of liquid woo
To Ian the base desire,
And llll his burning brain
Willi death's consuming firo.
Shuddering still, he li nked
At his victim's wife and child,
. As they cast on him n glance
Of scorn and hatred wild.
Thin, before his dreamy vision
A band of vittims came,
And one by one they helped
Dark curses oh his name.
Thus in quick succession came,
Each victim's spirit form,
While fierce and wilder raged
The dark and wintery slorm.
Long was the fearful vigil
The rumseller bad to keep,
For his spiritual victims
Would not let him sleep.
How much the .heart may bear, nnd yet not break'
now much the flesh mav snll'.r. and not diet
I question much if any paine or ache
ut soul or unity orings oui jnd more Ligh.
Death chooses its own time ; till that is sworn
All evils may be borne.
Wo shrink and shudder at the surgeon's knifo
r.ncii nerve recoiling irom the cruel steel
Whose edge seems searching for the quivering
life ;
Yet to our sense tho bitter nanps reveal
That still, although the trembling llesh be torn,
n'i.: , ... ... . .
.ilia, aiso, can ue ooruc.
We see a sorrow rising in our war,
And try to fly from the niitimachinsr ail s
We seek stone t-mall escape we weep nnd pray
jjui wm-n me uiow tans, then our hearts are
Not that the pain is of its sharpness shorn,
ma uiiiiK it can be borne.
We wind our life about another life
Wo hold it doner, dourer than our own:
Anon it faints and falls in deathly strife,
Leaving us stunned, and Mriekcn, and' alone
But ah t we do not die with those we mourn,
tf i . .
ina i, also, can ue Dome.
Behold, we live through all things-famine, (hirst
Bereavement, pain ; all grief and uiiaery ;
All woe and sorrow, life inflicts its worst
On soul and bodv but wa eniin.it ftin
Though we be sick, and tired, and faint, and

Lot ull things can bo borno.
ENDURANCE. Selected Miscellany.
The Condition of the South, and
its Causes.
Under the above head tho (N Y.) Evening
Post reviewo the statement of its corres
pondent, in regard to the condition of tho
Southern Stales, and (he caimes which
have led to that condition :
We publish elsewhere two southern
cornninnicatiotiB, one from our correspon
dent " Traveller," whose accuracy and mod
eration of slntt mctit wo have before com
mended ; and tho other from " I).," a dis-
tinguiKlieii physician of South Carolina.
They neither of them give us n very hope
ful view of things at tho South, hut they
do not concur precisely in their views of
the causes of this unhappy condition : nor
do they pretend to suggest tho remedies
for it, if any such exist.

idle and vicious ; thai iudiiNlry is paralyzed
and the prospects of subsistence gloomy ;
that the sudden adinisKion of vast numbers
of recent hvps to ihb franchise has pro
duced certain bad effects, may bo admitted.
Wc deploro these miseries as much as be
docs, and we bt liove that every intelligent
man it the North, not swayed by partisan
prejudices, deplores them, and would re
move them if ho could. Hut our corres
pond! nt should remember that a consider
able purl of the evils ho describes is I ho
effect of antecedent causes that have been
long operating, and not altogether the re
sult of nny recent or immediate, measures
or policy.
First, us to (he cha'actcr of the negroes,
we may repent wlmt ilucaulay said iu an
essay of tho Edinburgh llevimn of 1829,
in referenco to the obstinate hostility ol
the Knglisli public to the enfranchisement
ol the Jews : "Tho English Jews," ho re
marked, "are, as far as we cm see, precise
ly what our government has made them.
They uro precisely what any sect, treated
as they have been treated, would liavn
been." What the American negroes are
to-day the dominant race, noi lU as well as
south, have made them. So pliable and
plastio a nature as theirs was never before
permitted by Providence to pass through so
thorough a tutelage. If they are treacher
ous, white men made treachery thoir only
defence. If they are dishonest, theft was
a minor reprisal upon those who robbed
tlietu ol all. Jf they are immortal, they are
the children of a system which included all
conceivable immortalities. If they are un
titled to assume t lie duties! Iree citizens.
their training has been in the hands of a
superior race, with absolute power of di
rection It lliey are Ignorant, it is because
white men have made it the unpardonable
olfei.ee to enlighten, them. This we say not
as a taunt, nor in any spirit of resentment.
but to recall to our southern friends the
great facts of history, which has its retribu
tions as well as its rewards.
Secondly, if the materi.l prosperity of
the South ia largely destroyed, ita labor
disorganized, its coinmercm in ruins, ita
homes desolate, the best classes of its pop.
uKition decimated by death, we have not
far to keek lor li u dreadful (atiHef Four

Its anthors or ita Origin of bitter, terriblo,
protracted war. in which tho farest fields
were repeatodly trampled by armies of
friends ami toes, in which the youth of tho
nation were uaod up with a reckless gal
lantry that may be called chivalrio, as the
insane enthusiasm of Don Quixote, was
called so, in which the last cunt, evon the
last ring and breastpin was contributed to
a remorseless expenditure, in which tho
wholo labor syBtetrt of tho country was
broken to pieces, in which tho most em
bittered and pnssionato hatreds were en
gendered and bciptoathe.1 to posterity
four years of audi war, we say, cannot
pass away without leaving tho indulbble
traces of its passago ; nnd however great
the resources of a nation, however power
ful Its recuperative springs, it is not in
tho nature of things that it should rocover
without exhaustion and laugour, and pnngs
of intense pain. Our southern correspond
ent, in the consideration of his facts, must
not overlook the oi l Itiblo saying, that
they who sow tho wind aro apt to reap (he
Thirdly, the admission of the negroes to
the sulfrago, it ia aaid, and tho manner of
carrying tho schemo into effect, has wrought
tho most serious evils. We do not deny
it ; we have insisted with nil our force that
sonic lest of intelligence or probation of
time should be applied in the ftcedmen, ns
we apply them to our children and to
aliens; and so, as we havo not approved
those mensnres, we are lint specially called
upon to defend them ; but let us again re
mind our southern fiends that it was iu
their power, without dishonor, to have
averted tho cal.imitiosrcal or fancied, that
havo grown out of them. The' might havo
done so in two ways. In tho first pbico,
instead of giving way to their old hatreds
of custe, to the old master feeling iu rogard
to the negroes, nnd re enacting tho old ex
clusive and unjust laws, they might have
joined the intelligent and moderate men of
the North the liberal and wise men of
their own section in duvising some pro
hutioiuiry sehemo which would in the end
command itself to (ho good sense of all
pnrtics. Mr. Hampton, Mr. ll trringcr, tho
able editor of tho Nashvillo linnntu; tho
Charleston (Wrier, if wo mistake not, and
many other high southern authorities, saw
early tho necessity of thin, nnd counselled
their collcngues wisely, but thoir advico
was not headed. The negro was still
deemed a brute to bo tamed, and not a man
to bo developed and civilized. He was
one of the lower animal, or at best an in
ferior human, whose eternal doom it is,
whether fieo or slave, to become tho pariah
of society.
In tho second pi ice, when tho constitu
tional amendment known ns article four
teen, was presented to them, they rejected
it either with sulletmess or with scorn.
If that amendment contained disfranchise
ments that wcrs riisngrceablo, it neverthe
less left the regulation ol the suffrage sub
stantially in their own hands. Had they
accepted it frankly, tho dinabilities de
nounced in it would have been rapidly re
moved, tho controversy would havo been
at an end, and the Union restored, if not lo
its former bnrmony. lo moio than its former
integrity and benelieenco. Mitt the South
stood upon punctilios ; it (lid not frankly
accept the results of the war; the old ani
mosities, tho old prejudices, tho old ar
rogances, wcro nursed and cherished j its
newspapers tei nie'd, as many of them still
teem (rad "Traveller's" testimony) with
virulent and distempered outbreaks of
malicJ towaidithe North, and of contempt
for the negroes ; and this tiiirensonablu dis
play of rancor and hostility provoked that
legislation of resentment which moderate
men of all sides nnd of all sections will
have reason to rogrct. Extremes have bo-
gotten extremes, until tho situation has
reached an embarrassment and perplexity
that will require all tho wisdom, disinter
estedness and freedom from partisan foel
ing, that can bo summoned to our aid on
both sides, to extricate, us from tho difli
culty. Wo do not, however, despair of that sit
nation; we do not believe that tho conllict
of races which one of our correspondents
apprehends, will conio of it ; tho question
at issno is a question of principle, audit
will he settled according to principle if
not by this Congress, by another ; and if
not by the present leaders of opinion, by
leaders that the people will soon bring up
on the stage. What (ho North asks, what
the best men of the South already counsel,
is a settlement of the relations of all tho
races embraced in the bosom of tho repub
lic, not on a prejudice, which is no settle
mcnt, but on the tried and approved truths
of our republican system. The United
Slates is not a notion "of casto or races, but
of men, in which the chaucos und oppor
tunities of life aro freely opened to all
human creatures. Its fundamental polit
ical principle is that political privileges
should be shared by all men wlit uro com
petent to use them ; that every class has a
right to such protection as tho suffrage
affords to its own interests, as they- are re
garded by it.solf; and that the slate
itself is enlightened, liberalized, made
strong. by this general participation of the
people in its functions and duties. This
principle dues not imply that the suffrage
should be given at once, and without con
dition, to all men, to lunatics, to infants,
women, aliens, emancipates and Asiatics,
but that it should bo prospectively open to
all men, to bo enjoyed when their capacity
and worthiness is evident. This principle
the leading men of the South have under
taken to deny, and in so doing they havo
widened the breach between themselves
and the North, and while, they abjiiro it
tliero will be no end to controversy. On
the other hand, let tlum adopt it, let them
join in plans for its application, let them
proclaim justice, and not partiality, as tho
oidy true basis of the state, and their
horizon will brighten as dawn of a new
day . A'. P. Post
A Steam Man.
The old adage which proiliims that
" there's nothing new under the tun" !.as
been daringly, yet successfully, refuted.
XI r. Zadock Deddrick.a Newark machinist,
has invented a man ; one that, moved by
steam, will perform soma ol tho most im
portant functions of humanity, that will
stand upright, vallt or run, as ha is bid, in
any direction and of almost any rate of
speed, drawing after him a cart whose load
would tax the strength ol three stout
draught horses. The history of this cur
ious invention ia as follows i
6ix years ago, Mr. Deddrick, the inventor,
who is at present only twenty-two years of
ago, conceived tho novel idea of construct
ing a man that should roceivo its vitality
from a perpetual motion machine. The
idoa was bused on the well known mechan
ical principle that if a heavy weight he
placed on tho top of an upright slightly in
clined from a vertical, gravitation will tend
to produce a horizontal as well as vertical
The project was not successful. How
aver, by observing carefully the cause of
the faiiure, preserving and perfecting tho
man-form, and by substituting steam in
placo of tho perpetual motion machiuo, tho
present hucecsa was attained.
The man stands seven feet nine Inches
high, tho other dimensions of the body be
ing correctly proportioned, making him a
second Daniel Lambert, by which tiamo ho
is facetiously spoken of among the work
men. He weighs five hundred pounds.
Steam is generated in tho body or trunk,
which is nothing but a tlireo horse power
engine, liko thuso used in our steam tire
engines. The logs which support it nro
complicated and wonderful. Tho steps
aro taken very naturally and quite easily.
As the body is thrown forward on the ad
vanced foot, tit o other is lilted Irom tho
ground by a spring and thrown forward by
tho steam. Each step or pace advances
tho body two feet, and every revolution of
tho engine produces four paces. As the
engine is capable of making more than a
thousand revolutions a minute, it would
gctovirtho ground, on his calculation, at
thu ratio ol a littlo more than a nnlo a min
ute. As this would bo working the logs
faster than would bo sale O'l uneven ground
or on broad stroet cobblo stones, it is pro
posed to run tho eugino at tho rule of livo
hundred revolutions per intitule, which
would walk the man nt tho modest speed
of half a mile a minute.

Aaron Burr—His Death-Bed.
There has been an impression that Aaron
Hurr refusod to converse upon the subject
of religion during bis last illness. Hut this
is nn error. The writer has received from
the daughteiof the lato venerable Doctor
Van Pelt, tho following account of Hurr's
death, related by her father, who visited
him wheu dying I
Colonel Burr died at tho present Tort
Richmond llotol, Staten Island, where Dr.
Van Pelt frequently visited him during his
prostrated illness." Tho time spent with
iiini was chiefly employed iu religious con
versation, concluding with prayer. Asked
as to his views of the lluly Sciiplmes,
Colonel Hurr replied ''They wero tho
most perfect system of truth tho world
had ever seen." Two Imnrs before his
death, Dr. Van Pelt informed him that ho
could not siirvivo much longer, when he
replied ' I am aware of it." Dr. Van IV It
thus describes his last moments; -'With
his nsual cordial concurciice und manifest
desire, we kneeled in prayer before tho
throne of Heavenly Grace imploring Ood's
mercy and blessing. Ho turned in his bed
nnd put himself iu an humble, devotional
pr store, and seemed deeply engaged in
the religious service ; thanking mo, as
usual, for tho prayer made for him. Calm
and composed, 1 recommended him to tli
mercy of Uod and to the Word of Hi
fjrnoe, with a last farewell. At about two
o'clock, P. M , without groan or struggle
he breathed bis last. His death was easy
and gentle as a taper in its socket, or a
smnmiier's wave that dies upon the shore.
Thus died Colonel Aaron Burr.
His last years were spent in comparative
obscurity I a few old Irieuds, never desert
ing him, billowed his body to its final resting-place,
in the cemetery at Princeton, N.
J., where they deposited him alongside, or
the feet, of his reverend father's re
mains. For years not a stone marked the
silent spot; but a pliii white marldo mon
ument has been placed there, by the same
kifd hands who ministered to his wants
when in retirement, sick nnd dying.
What a strange history was Aaron IJurr a 1
At one time enniod along ou the wave of
popular favor, the chief magistracy of the
great republic seemed almost within bis
very gtasp, but not socuiin it, he buouruo
the second officer of the Ooverninont, tho
Vice-President of tho Unite ! Slates. How
rapid and lofty his riss, nnd his fall how
sudden mu! entire I After tho fatal dm )
with Qeneraf Ilnmifton, ho was indicted
for mnrder by the Grand Jury of -New
Jersey j by Right sought a relnge in the
South, living in obscurity fhoro until
tho meeting of Congress, when again ho
appears as President of tho I'niled States
Senate. His term ol offlco expired, ho goes
West and becomes the master spirit of nn
ambitious scheme to invado Mexico. Hut
he is brought back a prisoner of State to
Kichmond, charged with high treason, was
tried and acquitted. This happened in tho
year 1808 j and only filly-two years rdd,
his locks wero quite silvered, but his form
still orect; his eye sparkled with undimin
ished radiance. His trial was ono of tho
most remarkable in our nation's history.
John Uandolph, of lbmnoko, tho Illustri
ous orator, was the foreman ol the Grand
Jury, and tho eminent John Marshall tho
presiding judge. Not less than livo w.
yew, with tho prisoner himself, appeared
in tho defence. The fifty witnesses wero
sworn, and their tedious cross examination
disclosed depths of perjury. Still, tho
Government, after every attempt, failed to
obtain a couviolion. Aaron Burr, a man
of plots and conspiracies, was acquitted,
hut ruined. From the public indignation ,
however, ho ws compelled to leavo his
native land. Looked upon wilh suspicion
in England, he retired to fiance, there
living in reduced circumstances, and at
limes not ahlo to procure n meal.
Thus an alien for several years, ho ob
tained from Jeremy lleiithain tho niean to
return homo, and lauding nt Boston with
out a cent, ho found himself still an object
of distrust to all. Sinco his depart. no to
Europe he had received no tidings of his
beautiful, accomplished, and devoted daugh
ter Thcodosia. She had married, in 1S01),
Governor Allston, of Sonth Carolina, and
tho first news now heard was that his
grandchild, her only son, in whom his soul
delighted, had died, whilo ho was nil out
cast. She had been married young, when
her father had reached tho ZJtiitli of his
fame. Sho was not only a lady of rare en
dowments, but of the most refined feelings,
an elegant witter, devoted us a wife and
mother, and a most dutiful and affectionute
daughter. As tho clouds of sorrow and
adversity gathered nronnd him, nnd ho was
denoted by friends lie had formerly uher
isliud.alio clung wilh redoubled all'cctiou
to her father's tciriblo loriuues, while the
dark clouds of sorrow and adversity gath
oi ed around him.
Upon his arrival, Colonel Burr immedi
ately informed Mrs. Allston of it, wb.sn she
promised to meet him iu New York in a
low weeks. Sho had now hecomo bis all
on earth wife, grandchild and friends
wero all gono, and this precious daughter
alone remained to welcome him fro"- his
exile and cheer tho evening of his check
ered and sorrowful life. Days nnd months
passod away without any intelligence from
his daughter, when he grow more and more
impatient, almost doubting the sincerity ol
her affection. At last, however, ho ro
csived a letter from Governor Allston,
stating that sho had sailed some weeks bo
loro for Now York iu a vessel expressly
ehartored by him for tho purpose
But this vessel never arrived ; undoubt
edly all on board pcrishod at sea, ns no
tidings havo ever sinco been heard of her
futu. Now Burr's last link of life was
hrukon and his cup of sorrow full I Tho
mysterious uncertainty of her death greatly
increased tho poignancy of his accumulated
griefs, and liopo, tho last refugo of tho
alllictod and tho bereaved, bucamo extinct
as years rolled on.
The Express Peace.
A good dotl has been said in tho papers
during tho paBtyear about tho War between
tho Express Companies. It seems that
Peace has been formally declared at length.
Wo find the fallowing statement of tho terms
agreed upon betwoen tho contracting par
ties to tho Treaty of Pcnco in the Auburn
(N. Y.) Advertiser :
We understand that tho thrco old Ex
pross Companies United Stales, Amoiiean
und Adams have entered into a permanent
treaty of arrangements with the new Mer
chants' Union lor tho mutual conduct of
their business in all that relates to tho tariff
of rates, adjuslniy.it of torrilory and ex
clmngo of packages on routes not now oc
cupied iu common. Tho tariff agreed upon
is said to bo a remunerative one, but not
dearer to tho business people of New York
and tho iuteiiorof the country, than the
scale nimii which tho Merchants' Union
wus originally started. Thoro is to bo no
consolidation of capitals or of earnings, and
at tho samo time the trouly is pledged
against all future rivalry or cutting of rates.
This is undoubtedly a trim version of the
arrangement which has been made, and
about which, so mttch speculation has been
indulged in by tho press generally. Our
readers will observe that it corresponds
identically, in every essential particular,
with tho statement made in this paper sev
eral weeks ngo, nnd reiterated sinco in con
tradiction ol the consolidation story.
Tho statements recently appearing in
somo of tho Now York papers were errone
ous ua to tho scope nn i details of tho ar
rangements. Tho ollioera of the Merchants'
L'niou inako no secret of the terms of tho
arrangemoiit. They seem to feel very com
fortablo over tho result attained. And as
au caily friend and stockholder of tho Mer
chants' Union, wo confess that wo fuel an
especial pride in the arrsugement as now
perlected. L mler it ull the lines of a 1 the
other Express Companies nro opened to the
receipt of business from the Merchants'
Union thus allording it lueilitfts for trans
acting its business over the entire country.
Tho cutting of rates ceases, and the orig
inal I u i i It of tho Merchants' Union is to be
the basis of a general tariff of rates for
trai sani tation. While this will undoubtedly
he satisfactory to tho stockholders of the
Merchant!, Union, wo seo no reason why it
should not ho satisfactory to thu business
publio generally, who certainly ought not
to object to tne stockholders receiving rea
sonable dividends on their stock.
Since tho war has ceased, somo nnn-pnv-
ing routes of the several Companies, will.
of course, be abandoned and prices reduced,
thus allowing business to lo dono with
equal dispatch. But under the arrange.
inent as perlected trio Merchants Union ro
tains full control of its lines and routes.
and of the question of its rates and trans
portations. "
We congratulate the Htokholdcrs of the
Merchants' Union on their having attained,
through the able management of its officers,
(lid great result for which the Company
was established. Hereafter, dividends in
stead of assessments, will be the order of
the day.

Belgian Dogs.
Tho dogs of Belgium perforin tto fmpot
taut a pai tin the evefy-duy traffio of the
e iy, boing, in fact, tho " beasts of burden '
ot the common people, flint vie cannot
omit a brie.' notice of them. Air tho milk

filled with rows of shining brass
cans, which sro conveyed" fiotn honse tor

then tho milk woman supplies the absenco
of tho weight of tho lacteal lluid With her
own substantial person, and the little team
goes jogging homeward to the country.
Theao carts nro sometimes of a very con
sulci able size, and may bo seen filled with
barrels or bin, dies ol wood, under which
circumstances tho motive power is in
creased jto six or seven dogs, three and
four abreast, tugging and pulling at their
great burden, their poor littlo bodies sway,
ing lo und Iro in their efforts, and their gen
cral appeal anco and expression fur doge
do havo expressive faces etoi ting the,
sympathies of every humane person. Wheu
overcome by fatigue, hunger and thirst,
they lio down in harness and resolutely fc
fu so to inovo until (hey are fed ; nn instance
of w hich we had nn opportunity of witness,
ing ns we wore riding on the Longchamps.
A leaden team was coming in from the?
country to attend the next day's in.lrket,
when, just ns wo were passing, a most pit'
onus howl broke from one of the dogs,,
which was echoed by the others, and all
stood still In tho middle of tho road, somo
crouching on their haunches and somo '
prostrating themselves on the ground, with
their tongues lolling from their heated
mo'.iths. Tho man w ho had them iu charge
cracked his whip iu vain, and then, finding
all efforts useless, unharnessed them, when,,
in nn instant, tho wholo lino bounded down,
the Brassy bank of the rampart, and
plunged into tho cool water of tho moat.
Hero they stood for somo moments refresh -ing
thuir heated bodies, cutching at tho'
water wilh their in lulhs.aud noeining to loss-,
it above their heads when a shrill, pro
longed whistle from their master caused
them to rush suddenly up the batik, nnd
ero long tho team appeared again iu sight,
trotting merrily onward toward tho bridge.
The r owner, on tho occasion of their I.U i
gry demands, supplies them with pieces of
co.vrso brown bread, which he carried on
tho cart, and it is a common sight to soo
hiiu standing iu front of hi.i team, dealing
to ono and another the mouthful which
they eagerly devour. CvrrespomlenM of

Old Relics of Humanity.
Tho oldest relic of humanity extant ia the
skeleton of ono of the earlier Pharaohs, in
cased in its original burial robes and won
derfully perfect, considering its age, which'
was deposited about eighteen or twenty
months ago iu tho British Museum, and i .
justly considered the must valuable of its)
nrrhii'ologicul treasures. Tho lid of tho
coffin which contained tho royal mummy
was inscribed with tho name of the occii
pant, Phaioh Mykerimus, who succeeded
tho heir of tho builder of tho great pyra
