A correspondent at Vienna says it is not what occurs in front so much as what occurs in the rear of Plevna which will give to the fight there its significance. The Rus sians are preparing a Sedan for Osman Pasha, and he will probably have to trust to his own resources to extricate himself.

JSkobelofl 1 , the younger, turned up in Prince Schackosky’s headquarters. He is the stormy petrel of the Russian army. If I were riding along a road in a given direction in expectation of see ing a fight, and if I chanced to meet the General riding in an opposite direction, without any inquiry or any hesitation 1 would wheel my horse and ride in the General’s tracks, in the full assurance that 1 was doing the best thing for my self and your readers. He is in the thick of everything. In the gray dawn of the morning of the crossing I shook hands with him on the edge of the Dan ube, after the bayonet charge in which he had taken part. His face was black with powder, and he, General as he is, carried a soldier’s rifle with the bayonet fixed. He was in the fighting at the Sc ipka, and led the first column which tra versed that pass. There seemed some prospect of quietude for some days on the other side of the Balkans, and the Plevna expedition offered a prospect of fighting. The General is unattacned, and can roam from flower to flower, from one fighting ground to another. He is, I sometimes think, a little mad, but a man of real value in a warfare such as this. It would be embarrassing if every General was a Skobeloff; but a few Skobelofts scattered up and down through a great army have their uses. They generally end by getting shot, and earn a short memoir and a good many decorations. But 1 hope it will be a long time before Skobeloff meets his in evitable doom, for he is a right good fellow, and a staunch comrade. He came to us from Baron Krudender’s headquarters, with instructions that he should assume a temporary command of Col. Tutolmin’s brigade of Circassian who have also been attached to this expedition, and execute a recon noissance in the direction of Lovca. He rode off in the darkness, and after riding fifty miles, returned with the tidings that Lovca was held by five battalions of Turkish infantry, and its rayon in fested by Circassians and Bashi-Ba zouks.” A Singular Family. From the Calvert Central Texan. Living near Englewood, in this county, is a family of father, mother and twelve children, and remarkable to state, they count 1128 fingers and toes as naturally belonging to them. Each of the twelve children has twenty-four, fully develop ed, but the parents only have forty be tween them. Prof. Hungleford, formerly of Calvert, but recently teaching at Englewood, had several of these chil dren as scholars. One day, during, recitation, one of this family was told to count his fingers with a view of impress ing some number upon his mind. The child announced that the number was twelve. The teacher said the Returning Board was endeavoring to practice fraud, and bull-dozed the little fellow into another count. The result was the same. “ Come here,” said the now irate teach er, “ and let me count your fingers.” His numbering corresponded with the child’s for on each hand he found five fingers and a thumb. This freak is all well enough to excite the curious to gaze on, but it appears to us these extra digits might have been placed on other hands without additional trouble. The extra ordinary family hails from Canada. W hat Women Owe to Men. From the Omaha Bee. The success of women upon the modern forum and in the bureaus of journalistic correspondence leads us to wonder why it is that in all the domestic departments where woman has had such a tine opportunity to acquaint herself with its wants and methods, that she lias never inaugurated any improvement, and left it to men. Yes, to these inferior men to invent and perfect them. Our modern commodious, self-rocking cradles, fine cooking-stoves, sewing-machines, knitting-machines and washing-machines have been invented and improved by men. The modern baking powder, so much used in cooking, aye, even the aj>- pliances which quiet the little ones, viz., the soothing milk bottle, with all its modern rubber patent attachments, are the inventions of men. In the face of all this, how women can claim superiority wc cannot comprehend. Considering that Eve was such a remarkable talker, it is strange that even the automation talking machines which have been in vented at times have been done by men. There is only one department which men, to their credit be it said, have not im proved upon—that is, Eve’s extensive patent of “story telling.” An Auctioneer’s Hits. Of John Keese, the witty New York , book auctioneer, a biographer tells the following among numerous anecdotes equally amusing; Knocking down a “ Hand-book,” he added, for the com fort of the purchaser, “ You will see that it is pretty well fingered.” “Dam aged, you say? yes—a little wet on the outside—but you will find it dry enough within.” On another occasion he par ried this word “damaged” quite hap-1 pily. A young son of a highly respect able Episcopal clergyman was a privi leged attendant at the auction room. ' Keese offered a soiled or injured copy of “ Book of Common Prayer.” “ Isn’t it damaged?” exclaimed the youth; upon which Keese turned round to him slowly and fixing his attention upon him with great gravity, in a tone of soberness and solemnity, addressed him, “Has your father taught you to regard that as a damaged book?” Scars still remaining on the head of Assistant Secretary of State Seward, from wounds received while sheltering his father from the assa**in, he wears a black silk skull cap to cdftceal them.

An item from Lincoln: “Mr. James Jay informs us that he had a piece of oats destroyed by the hailstones last week. Not a grain stayed on the bead. He says they were as large as his pipe’s head. The next morning Mr. Jay was to be seen picking his oats grain by grain. Mr. C. Lefevre had the same thing done with his tobacco plants.” Friday a young lady named Jones, living in Byron, while eating a peach, accidentally swallowed a pit, which stuck in her throat, nearly stopping her breath.

A few weeks since we made mention of u heifer, owned by Win. B. Ash, of this city, that had never had a calf, and yet was giving milk. A few days since she bad a calf, and the strange freak of giving some six quarts of milk a day for nearly three months before calving, is still unaccounted for. —Beaver Dam Citizen. Alfred L.

Dick, drawing his re volver, took deliberate aim and hit the mark, the ball passing entirely through the snake’s head, laying him out for food. The children, no doubt, must ave suffered death had it not been for the timely arrival of assistance. The snake measured four feet two inches in length and ten inches in diameter. A Singular Fact. A correspondent of the London Note* and (Juerie* quotes from Burckhardt a curious fact in connection with Egyptian art. The author says: Among the in numerable paintings and sculptures in the temples and tombs of Egypt, I never met with a single representation of a camel, At Thebes, in the highest of the tombs, on the side of the Diehil Habow, called AM el Gome, which has not, I believe, been mentioned by former trav elers, or by the French in their great work, I found all the domestic animals of the Egyptians represented together in one large painting upon a wall, forming the most interesting work of the kind which I saw in Egypt. A .-hepherd con ducts the whole herd into the presence of his master, who inspects them, while a slave is noting them down. Yet even ' here I looked in vain for the camel.
