The war eclipses-jill minor events, or we sboulii heat more of, occurrences in France, bat inordinary times would be themes tuuvaraal-. Jiaouaaioii. It is scarcely) credible, .but yet is true that within a few months a man was burned to death by a French mob on the mere accusation of haying cried, "Down with the Kmperor." This frightful tragedy is jest now the subject of a, trial before the ' Court of Assizes of the Dordogne. Twenty-one peasants and artisans have been arraigned in extraordinary session charged with the perpetration of the crime, "J V" a'W ' 1 ' ,i lit. seems, from the est of . aucusalion, that it was committed on the 16th of last August, the day after the Napoleonic an niversary. On that day M. de Moneys, an assistant or adijont to the Mayor of Beaussac, arrived at Hautefaye, a village in the department of the Dordogne. The occasion was one of(uonsnal excite ment, it being a fair day. ' Some excited talk occurred about elections in a group near which M. de Moneys was standing. He drew near and asked the cause. The reply was that a cousin of his, M, de Maillard, had shouted: "Down with Na poleon 5 .Vive It Repiibliquel"; De Mo neys ai toace'deelared' this could not be so; But his informant pusnea into tne crowd and loudly demanded that those who heard De Maillard use the obnox ious expressions should hold up their hands. Over twenty responded to the summons, .and a-scene ensued ,01 an appalling character. ' 1 1 , ' U U'ae mobUdrning! fronnPe Maillard, rushed upon the unfortunate De Moneys, and at once began maltreating him. One fellow seized him by the ear and twisted part of it off; another struck him a stun ning blow with his list, ana tne tnira ran a eoad into his neck below the right ear. Thja. was. however, but the beginning of the end. .in spite 01 nis agonizing screams and prOtestations of innocence, and in spite of the efforts of his kinsman, M. De Maillard, his persecutors seized De Moneys, , Shouting' " Death " .and dragged him toward a cherry tree, on which they announced their purpose to hang him. ' The Mayor arrived and put on his scarf in token of intent to hear and jqdge the accusation but the mob dia bBaidc4 him and prc(se4 on.i 1 The par ish priest next eame, armed with a re volver, and determined to rescue the flictim.(-Buthe was violently threatened, and even struck; and his friends, fearful of his, hfe.ldrageod him, forcibly back into his house. Meanwhile a few humane souls tried to help De Moneys, but they were overpowered and beaten. Two burly agricultural laborers, Campot by name, were most conspicuous in leading the mob,., and striking down all who op posed the m - .Da Moneys now kept con tinually crying "Vive t Emp ereurl" to appeasa bis assailants, but in vain. A chiffonier at this, juncture struck him with his hook with such fury that a wit ness declared ha thought the weapon had pierced the brain. A man named Brownlet. a land-holder and member of the municipal council of a neighboring commune, next attacked De Moneys, dashing his fists in his mouth and eyes, and finally kicking him savagely in the backi I Spurred by this noble example, a farrier named Cham bord struck him with a loaded cane, yelling that he and like him should be killed. A scene of sickening barbarities followed, the bare enumeration of which, in the minutes. of the trial, ills three lone newspaper columns. The miserable man's head is described as looking at last like a "globe of. bloody Happily for pim his release was drawing nigh. After torturing their victim until thev were themselves exhausted, these blood thirsty srretches made a heap of fire wnmh liranches. and straw, and laid Dc 'Monevs upon, it ."They piled wood upon him, brought matches, and " either from compunction or caution " made two little children light these and set fire to the pile. 1 Before' the fagots were lighted, however, two of the torturers "jumped on those that had been laid upon the victim, and stamped and danced uport them." 'All this time the Mayor was present, and looked on, but dared not interfere. De Moneys, too, wag qnite eoaibla, and saw all that was going on. One witness testified that he must "have seen himself burn for a quarter of an hour' bfif're death ended his agony. When the fiiyues had burnt outcome of 1be assitnein.-C who had slunk away turned oiver the "ashes with their sticks, and drew thence, "a charred object that looked like the burnt trunk of a tree, with the remains of two branches black ened by fire." This was all that was left of the unfortunate De Moneys. Some bystander had the courage to express his horror .at the crime, and to say some thing about the laws. "There are no laws," retorted one of the miscreants, with a fine flavor of the first French Revolution; "one can kill a nobleman now like a tiy or a fowl." It makes the blood boil, even when the tale comes from a distance of three thousand miles, to hear, that an attempt was made, and came near being' successful,' to clear these cowardly murderers by a legal sub tarfuge. - - - Tlioir counsel held,, and prayed the court to rule, that, by reason of the de cree of the 4th of September which de clares Amneety -fof all.political offenses since December 2, 1852 it had no ju risdiction in the case. Happily for hu manity, tli court ti"clie'd to- rule itself incoraptttHl, and the trial, by laxt ac counts, was still in progress. It will be a singular aatisi'ction ley hear that the triulMtiiiSil ruffians concerned in this out rage will receive their full deserts. . , J.: ! o-a- t'allrgra areata. If our college walls had eyes and ears, says ' a .writer ' in 1 the f Beloit College Monthly, they would laugh till the plas ter rattled at some of the events which they would witness? Forinstance: Scene First Students' room; late at night; four students seated round a table, pieces of pasteboard in their hands. A fight, stealthy step if heard upon the stairway; then nearer, in the ball; oh, horror! " It is the Faculty, the Facul ty'" it the thought of each culprit, as he looks atiout in vain for some way of es cape.

"W-will hec-come." . Nothing is beard save the chattering of teeth from the closet. Then there comes the dreaded knock. With a mighty effort, Student No. 4 summons all his courage and goes to the door; with trembling hand he turns the knob, and discovers Student No. 6, a freshman who has come to bor row "authority on UreeK prose. Freshman enters, smiling loudly at the success of his ecare, as shown by the guilty looks :of Nos. 3 and 4. Dusty figure emerges from nnder the bed, another from the closet. Mutual recog nition.

Third student proposes that they "fix" him; thinks a pail of cold water would be about right. Fourth student thinks "that is high." A suppressed murmur of applause. First student, a Freshman, seizes a pail of cold water; feels its temperature; grins savagely. A knock; Freshman approaches the door with stealthy steps; Bgain feels the tem perature of the water, with grim satisfac tion. Steps up into a chair and raises the window above the door; elevates the pail, and, with a yell of ' exultation, dashes the contents out of the window. Opens the door and beholds the drenched, dripping, shivering person of his astonished and somewhat indignant washerwoman! MARRIED IX FUX. A Foolish Joke Work for lawyers. For some time past there has been in existence in Albany, New York, a sort of society or club, composed of young ladies and gentlemen, and formed for the cultivation of their histrionic tastes, and to prepare themselves for a life of future usefulness upon the dramatic stage, as well as for social enjoyment. The rooms in which they massacre Shakspeare and tear Dumas to pieces are situated on State street, in the heart of the business portion thereof; and the unusual sounds incident to high tragedy emanating therefrom have, no doubt, often attracted the attention of the passer-by. But these rooms,, the scene of so many mock representations.beheld something a few evenings since far dif ferent from anything oefore enacted within their walls no less than a com edy in real life. , On that certain evening the members of the club had assembled as usual, but in consideration of it being the holiday season, a motion to dispense with the dramatic exercises, and betake . them selves to various methods of social en joyment, met with mnch favor, and was unanimously adopted. For a time the minutes flew merrily by in the games usually indulged in at social parties. These, however, soon became monoton ous, and a number of feminine and mas culine heads might, have been seen in close proximity devising some new mode of entertainment. Their ready wits were for a time unable to discover anything which would serve to amuse, until, at last, a young lady, her bright eyes brim ming over with merriment and mischief, proposed a mock marriage, "just for fun, you know." This proposition was eagerly seconded by another bewitching damsel, and as it seemed impossible that either of them had any ulterior object in view, the new divertisemcnt was agreed to by all. . ; Preparations were immediately made for having the interesting ceremony per formed with all due solemnity. A young law Btudent volunteered to act in the ca pacity of officiating clergyman, while two other well known young men gladly agreed to accept the duty of going through the formula with the young ladies aforesaid. All things being in readiness, the two young couples were joined to gether, strictly in accordance with the text of the service, and were solemnly pronounced man and wife amid the de lighted laughter of those who acted as spectators at the success of the plan. Many were the jokes the newly wedded were made the victims of, and which were heartily enjoyed by the young people themselves. All this was well enough so far, and continued so nntil the time ar rived for separating. The husbands had donned their coats and bats preparatory to their departure, and had already bade the rest good night. But at this juncture a change came over the spirit of their fun. The young wives were not going to allow their new-made lords to leave them in such a cruel, unhusbandlike manner, and insisted on their rights as wives being given them, claiming the marriage was just as legal and. lawful as though cemented by a real minister, inasmuch as each of them made a public acknowl edgment to take each other "for better or worse" before witnesses. The youDg gentlemen were completely non-plussed by this unexpected termination of the evening's enjoyment; but, of course, flatly refused to consider themselves bound by the farcial service performed. In this interesting state the affair now stands, and will, no doubt, if the young ladies persist in their determination. give some of the lawyers work to do. 1 m 9 m Amonat af Sleep Required. Every man must sleep according to his temperament; but eight hours is the average. If one requires a little more or a little less, he will find it out for him self. Whoever, by work, pleasure, sor row, Or by any other cause, is regularly diminishing his sleep, is destroying his life. A man may hold out for a long time, but nature keeps close accounts, and no man can dodge her settlements. e have seen impoverished railroads that could not keep the track in order, nor spare the engine to be thoroughly repaired. Every year track and equip ments deteriorated. By and by comes the crash, and the road is a heap of con fusion and destruction. So it is with men. ihev cannot spare time to sleep enough. They slowly run behind. Symptoms of general waste appear. Premature wrinkles, weak eyes, depres sion of spirits, failure of digestion, feeble ness in the morning, and overwhelming melancholy; these, and many other signs, show a general dilapidation. If now sudden calamity causes an extraor dinary pressure, they go down nnder it. They have no resources to draw upon. They have been living np to the verge of their whole vitality every year. E.
