Wei cloth on your forehead, Bottle at your feet? You would truly find it A hydropathic treat. Listen, while I tell you How they give a pack The modus operandi Is really quite a knack. First, they wrap you closely In a dripping sheet, A bottle of hot water Is then placed at your feet : Blanket after blanket Wrapcd about your form, Comfortables in plenty, Keep you nicely warm : Firm about the shoulders, Tight about the feet, All the sides tucked closely, To Veep In all the heat : Then a cold, wet towel Put upon the head ; You are packed and almost Helpless to the head. Do not think of stirring Head, or foot, or hand ( You must bide your time out You can not burst a band. Still 'tis quite delightful, Lying at your ease 1 You're in such a happy mood, Any thin will please. Acting like a opiate, Easing all your pain, Calming down your bounding pulse, Cooling off your braia Puts you in a slumber, Gives you dreams of bliss, Naught In any " Treatment " Is so nice as this. When it all works nicely, You have a charming time, If you have not tried one, Reader, do it's prime. But, as faithful chronicler, Perhaps I ought to tell, 'Tis not every one you get, Pleases you so well. If you're feeling nervous Tired and can not rest, You'll surely Nil to like them, Though you try your best. Now perchance the wet cloth, Placed upon your head, Will begin to drip drip Drip upon the bed. Till to your distracted nerves The tiny drops will sound, Large as cannon-balls, that weigh Net less than forty pound. But you're very lucky, If the drops don't steer In another channel, And trickle in your ear. If you should make the effort To get into a doze, First you know, a saucy fly Has lighted on your nose Runs his sharp preboacis Through the very skin Delighted with the ovtsidc, Takes a sip within 1 Sets your nose to itching, Darts upon your eyes, Dances o're the lashes, Your patience sorely tries. Then he scampers over Brow, and cheek, and lip, In your ear finds water Stops to take a sip. You twitch the muscles right and left, Work tbem up and down, Blow and try a broad grin Then you try a frowu. All your efforts will not Start bin from his lace, He's taken such a fancy To your pleasant face. Then perhaps the bottle, Tucked up with yaur feet, Loses out the stopple, Water scalding beat. This has eapp'd tht climax, Worn your patience out, With the strentgh that's left you, Give 1 kiety stoout. And scream perhaps until you're bonne, To make some person hear, For you're more than lucky, If any one is near Unless It be some romrade In the self same pligl t, Lying on another bed, And tucked up jsst as tight. Still, with such exceptions, A pack is very fine If you never tried one, Reader, it is time. MISCELLANEOUS. Pecuniary Independence. The following story (if thu Into Silas Wright, taken from the Daily Wisconsin, affords a lesson which Americ an youth nnd American Hutcsiuen would do well to ponder : Silas Wright, with his estate of $ 1,000 was really wealthier than many others are with SlOO.000. lie owed no man any thing ; ha met his obligations with the ut most promptness, nnd never indulged in ny luxury that lie could not pay for. lie was a modle of republican simplicity. It should also bo understood that he was not nean in saving money. There was some thing glorious in witnessing a great states man hue Silas right never usking pe cuniary favor, or even accepting one, yot possessing only an income that could bop- ort him and his wits with frugality. When he was elected Govcnor of the Stato of New York, ho was known to be too pour to furnish his house. His rich friends got together, and, without Ins knowledge, made up a subscription, which was tendered bim as a gift, in order to furnish his mansion. This ho respectful- y but kindly declined, saying, with a true Komnn grandeur, that he could not con sent to receive such a favor from any one even from his most esteemed friends : ho was elected by the people to be Gov ernor of the Slate of New York, and he considered it his imperative duty to live on whatever income the peoplo had np- ended to that oliice ; and he did live on thu income while he was Governor, in good style, but with no osten'ation. Such an example on the part of so eminent a man us he was is one of those precious legacies that the young men of the pres ent day should bear in mind ns no true greatness can ever be achieved so long as they are the pecuniary slaves of even their nearest friends. When a public man re ceives favors that he can not repay, he uses that tturdy independent so essen tial to usefulness and an enduring popu- arity. " Live within your income," is more important to one who aims to be an influential and useful statesman, than any other maxim." Coal Bunino Locomotives. Nu merous unsuccessful attempts have been made, durin? the last ten years, for sub stituting coal for wood, as fuel for locomo fves. When it is known that all over Europe eoko is used as successfully as wood is here, it is not easy to understand why there should be any dilliculty in using anthracite ; but practice tins shown that there are many. There are now, mainly, three different plans for the attainment of this object, and they are all approved by competent engineers. In one of these tho novelty consists in making the flames fol low a curved flue, instead of going straight to the chimney ; the smoke is thus more thoroughly mixed with air, and consequently better burned; there is also an arrangement to supply the furnace with warm air. Another locomotive, bas ed on a different arrangement to the same end, wtighs 59,000 pounds, the driving wheels are five feel in diameter, the stroke is twenty-two inches, the boiler is forty-nine inches in diameter and eleven and a half feel long. The barrel proper. extending from the name sheet to the smoke arch, is seven feel and a half long and forty inches in diameter. There are 179 brass tubes of two inches outside di ameter and seven and a half feet Ion". The fire box measures sixty by thirty-two inches, with a combustion chamber extend ing four feet into the barrel of the boiler. This chamber is divided by a water leg, extending from the front of the fire box to within twenty inches of the tube sheet. Around the combustion chamber there are apertures which are opened and closed at pleasure, and by wbich air can be let 111 to burn the gases not yet consumed. The Highest Waterfall in the world is in the Sandwich Islands, and it is stated to be between four and five thousand feet high. The stream on which the fall oc curs runs among the peaks of one of the highest mountains, so high that the water actually never reaches the bottom, so great is the distance, and ascends to j 111c 1 iuiiu aaiu. lioit.io Wheat roa Dkssliit. Pick over and waah a pint of white wheat, boil it four hours, put iu salt tho same ns for rice; refill with boiling water, if more is needed ; stir often tho last half hour, being careful not to let it burn ; cook it dry. Sometimes it looks starchy when first dished, but that soon disappears. Serve hot or cold, with sweetened nweet cream. This we thiol" an excellent des sert, and very line for invalids. Another very rich dish, for dessert, ran bo made of a pint of wheat, cooked like the above, then boil in a quart of sweet milk, one cup of sugar, one cup of raisins, currants, or any fruit, (raisins are prcfl'ernble,) two beaten eggs ; cook slow ly, and stir until it boils j servo cold or hot, without sauce. Or, after the wheat is washed, soak it in warm water over night, keep it wet till time for we. then simmer the water all out of it; then add tho milk and other ingredients, and cook ns above. School or Dkmdn ron Women. An Englishman, William A. Neil, of New York City, lias presented to tho School of Design for Women, at the Cooper Insti tute, forty casts of Thorwaldseri a princi pal bus-rt!irfi. They oro of tho size of the originals in the Copenhagen Museum. Tho castsaro finely executed. Some other casts were included in the donation. Tho object of this school is. to teach women painting (on china nnd in oil colors), on graving on wood and stone, and the art of designing, by which means they can sup port themselves honorably without swell ing the ranks, already crowded, of those who depend for bread upon the needle. Among the bat-rrlir.fi are "Night and Morning," " The Four Seasons," The Four Evangelists," " The Ages of Love,' etc. A Rich Scene. A few days since I chanced to stumble into an auction sale of damaged dry goods where the bids were spirited, and thu large crowds of males and females were viewing with each other in their offers, when a pair of blankets wero put up, and dozen bids were raised for them. The puzzld auctioneer, how ever, caught by the highest, which was, I think a dollar, from a female who seem ed determined to have them at any price, when, ere he could sny " going" a male voice cried out " dollar fifty," from the opposite side of the room. " Two dollars," echoed the woman, el bowing her way through the dense mass of females who were separated ' from the males by a long cnuntr upon which the glib-tongued functionary walked to and fro with the goods. Turning to the other side, he commenc ed anew his stereotypye vocabulary of choice and amusing figures of speech till he touched the final. Two fifty," nodded tho man. "Thank ye, sir. Coin? at two fifty." " Three !" screamed the woman. " Four," replied the man. "Go the fifty!" said the auctioneer, turning to the woman with a half-suppressed smile on his small, sober visage. A nod from the woman. Four fifty I'm offered ; give me five ? Come, don t be afraid, they re worth doub Id the motif y." " Yes, nnd that's all." " Sold !" cried the knight of the ham mer, almost bursting with luughter, " to Captain Smith, for five dollars." " Smith !" exclaimed the woman, " what my husband ?" raising herself on tip-toe to catch a glance. " Why, you good-for-nothing man, you've bidding against your own wife ! Oh, you impudence! Jut 1 won't have them in the house !" A Dutchman's Idea or IlESEoiTAar Gout. An old friend, a distinguished and ex-war minister, resident in Pennsyl vania, tells a good story of a Dutch neigh bor of his who had the gout, and was greatly puzzled to know how he caino by it- nat 11 tne matter witn vou, my friend ?' inquired the judge, who had called in to see his sick neighbor. . . . 1 - a. s !

" Veil," replied the invalid, with the look of a man who had been suddenly en lightened on a difficult subject " Veil, I guess it ish hrrtditary I remember my veife't tmcehad de cout !" The judge is of the opinion that a good many of the hereditary gout ef the pres ent day will have to be traced in the Dutch nan's mode of lineage, in order to make out the descent.

In ens of larger country towns of Massachusetts, av few weeks since, a young gallant invited one of his lady friends, to go with him on the Sabbath to a small gathering of wor shipers of the Episcopal persuasion, and while standing in the entry with one of his friends, one of the " pillars of tha church " came along, and wanted to know if Uiry teere tht eouvU that vxrt going to have a child baptised This was too much for human nature, and the young spark eft the church and went into a Catholic chaple near by, where no better fata awaited him ; for he had scarcely arrived w hen the priest stepped up and asked him if fie was the young maiu thai vat to be xnarrvd J These questions would certainly indi cate an extraordinary amount of " inter esting " business on hand at the churches alluded to.-Suletn GixttUt. -, YtLLOW in Havana. fever is making sad havoc The Command or the Utah Asmt.
