As a rule, highwaymen in the mining States seldom operate upon a stage- coach with' " U. . S. M." on it. They know that these initials stand for the United States' ' Mail, and are a pledge that the whole iower of the Government will be ustd to capture tnem. 3 The detectives in the Government service are ruietmen, courteous in man ner and trentla in eiteech. , Mr. llayca tells, in his boti -'on ' New Colorado,'1 of one whom he met, who wore gold spectacles, and looked like a trerman professor.

Not a man in the rowd moved a fiiiirer. 1 . t . On one occasion, a celebr&tad detebi ive was on a stacro which was attacked by two masked men. The first he knew Vas that two revolvers were thrust in the ooh's windows, with the command, "Hands up. gentlemen!" The highwaymen " had the drop " oa Cie passengers, which, in their vocabu lary, meant the certainty of their being abie to kill '. before being harmed tham- etlves. To his disgust, the detective was compelled to give up his watch and rhoaey. As the robbers left, he put his hand down in the " boot," and to bis delight it touched a carbine. Asking the driver to go on a little farther, and then stop and wait for him, he went back alone. The two men, -unsuspicious of danger, were " divvying up " the spoils, in the middle of the road. This wds just what the detective had calculated n. ' ' Now, you scoundrels, it's my turn," k khouted, ooveiing them by the t jeatiijg carbin i " Throw up yovr, hands, or I'll shoot." The robbers, at his command, stepped w& side, holding up their hands, while Le i.ioked up their revolvers. It was not many minutes before the astonished passengers saw the jtwo highwaymen luertskly walking down the road, with the oul detective following.

The "worship of humanity" has now ia Liondoii a chapel, a priest, and a ritual. Its chapel ia situated in a dingy Btreet, and is a small room capable of contain ing a hundred persons. Its solo decora tions are engraviugs, busts, mottoes, and flowers; its pulpit a small desk abovn whicli is an engraving of the Dresden Madonna mother and child having been CornteV highest typo of humanity. Compte, the founder of tho Positivist, or Humanity School, redivided the year into thirteen months which he named respectively Moses, Homer, Arisotle, Archimedes, Ciesar, St. Paul, Charle magne, Dante, Gutenberg, Shakspeare, Descartes. Frederick tho Great, and Bichat, representing ancient poetry, philosophy, science and - government; Catholicism; and modern poetry, philosophy, industry, science, govern ment, etc. Bust3 of these persons adorn tho room, together with engravings of Ctesar, Archimedes, Scipio, Tlato, Aristo tle; , Pythagoras, Virgil, llomer, Con fucius," Paul, St. Bernard, Aquinas, Mohammed, Charlemagne, Shakspeare, Dante, Milton, Louis XI., Columbus, Hume, Bacon, Moliere, Mozart, and many other worthies. There are now about sixty worshipers in London belonging to tho religion of Humanity, but even that number is an increase; for some years ago Professor Jowett, visiting them, said he found there "three persons and no God." Tho "Festival of Holy Women" was celebrated on the day when Mr. Conway, who writes an interesting letter about it, was present, and the discoui-se of tho Priest, Dr. Congreve, a scholarly, white-haired man, pertained to eminent and holy women of the past St. Monica, Beatrice, Heloise, Joan of Arc, and others. He read George Eliot's famous Positivist hyinn, "O, Might I Join tho Choir In visible'," and lessons from tho "Imita tion of Christ," by Thomas a Kempis, a volume which, after her death, was foiind by George Eliot's side. Prayers are offered to tho "Great Power whom we here acknowledge as the Highest Humanity." There is also a ritual, with prayers, and a benediction as follows: "The Faith of Humanity, The Hope of Humanity, The Love of Humanity, bring you comfort, and teach you sympathy, give you peace in yourselves and peace with others, now and forever, Amen." Dr. Congreve, tho priest, has distin guished himself for his sympathies in behalf of all the popular movements, and his opposition to slavery and all oppres sion; of the French under Napoleon III.; the wars of England against Afghans, Zulus, Boers, and other weak and he lp less people; and has just delivered and published a forcible discour&e in favor cl granting Irish independence. Many, if not most, of the disciples of Com to s philosophy, like John Stuart Mill, . Georeo Henry Lewe3, George Eliot, John Morley, editor of the in t nhjldiy lieview, have never approved of the religious or ritualistic phase of Positivism, and whatever progress it has made has been a mental and inward in fluence upon the thought of the time, and" not the building up of a sect,r even a congregation. Rich Old Bachelors. Considering tho social nature of our race, and the great f aciUties offered these men for marriage, the question mignt uo raised, whv they remained in such a con dition. They say, however, that old Petar Qoelot felt too poor, ami; was al ways waiting foy better times. He in herited an estate worth $200,000, and he saw it increase to ten times that amount, but he never escaped from the thrall dom of that poverty which wa3 so early a fea ture in his character. James Lenox's caae is said to have been uiifercnt. He was naturally rcthing and had an aver sion to society. He never sought friend-: ship and never had a companion. He was a born student, and his lovo of rare books became a passion.

The fact is not generally known that within three hours' ride of Boston a large aud profitable business has been carried on since 1848 along the seashore, and is nothing more or less than "farm ing under the sea." Everywhere upon the coasts of eastern 2ew I&glaud may le found, ten feet below the water mark, the- lichen known as carrageen the "Irish moss" of commerce. It maybe torn from the sunken rocks anywhere, and yet the little seaport of Scituate is almost the only place in the country .vhere it is gathered and cured. This vilh-Ke is the great center of the moss business in the country, and the entire Union draws its supplies from these beaches. Long rakes are used in tilling this marine farm, and it docs not take Jong to fill the many dories that await the lichen, torn from its salty, rock bed. The husbands and fathers gather the moss from the sea, and tle wives and daughters prepare it for the market. Soak it in water, and it will molt away to a jelly. Boil it iu milk, aud a delicious white and creamy blancmange is the re sult. The annual product is from ten to fifteen thousand barrels, and it brings 50,000 into tho town, which sum is shared by one hundred and fifty families. Its consumption in the manufacture of lager beer is very large, and the entire beer of tho country draws its supplies from Scituate beaches, as tho importa tion frojn Ireland has almost ceased. It is not generally known that the moss, as; an article of food, is called "soa-mosa farina." Ifot Impromptu.

An Uuhuilded Monument, Poor Artemus Ward j Iu our day there litis been iia more delightful Lu morist. When he died, the pici s of En gland and America was filled with trib utes to his memory. In New York a meeting of newspaper folk was held, at which it was resolved that his memory should really and truly le perpetuated. Tho manner in whicli this was done is amusingly told in the following, from a Boston friend : "A few summers since I passod a week's vaaation at Wateriord, Me., and during my visit went to the village graveyard to view the final resting-place rA' ivtamiia Wion1 With Kortitt t mnli"! i I r fuluul the gre there balnif nothing about the plain white slab to uistinguish it from many similar ones around.

Well, stranger, I guess I kin," was the reply.

An eccentrio lady startled the guests at a reception by ro contly appearing with vhat apieared to be the skull of an infant pendant from her chatelaine. It turned out to le that of her pet monkey, properly polished and furnished with small crystal eyes. Another lady of fashion wears a gold, box, in which she has a small powder puff and a little rice powder, also a small mirror. Ono of her whims is to uso these to arrange her complexion lxforo folks. The fashionable ladies of Paris are tdso overwhelming a young Italian artist wilh orders for Roman heads, which he carves exquisitely aud wonderfully upon a cherry ton fhia Lj tho wlihu of the hour, and the sculptor receives enormous prices for theso tiny heads, and it is said no emerald is costlier. The Right Kind or Pride. A young man "that works for hia board," no matter what honest work L,9 dot s, has no reason for shame. A young man who eats the bread of idleness, no matter how much lie has, is disgraced. All men, starting in life, ought to aim, first of all, to find a place where they can earn their bread and butter with a hoe, ax, spade, wheel -barrow, curry comb, blacking-brush no matter how, Indejwndenco first The bread-and-butter question fettled, let the young man jerforni his duty bo faithfully as to attract attention, and let him constantly keep his eye open for a chanco to do bet. ter. About half tha poor, proud young : men, and two-thirds of the poor, disoour. aged young men, are always out of work. The voting mou who pockets his pride and keeps a stiff upper lip, need not starve, and he stands a chanco to become rich, if ho cares to, Tub motto of 8tonGWiillJack8on was: iTrust in the Lord but get in the rear of be enemy if you'ean.'
