A few davs ago-1 happened to pick ud a scran of a New York paper which contained a paragraph to the eflect that one Julian Cook, formerly au actor, died in an insane hospital, after a restraint of two and twenty years. I remember him well as second juvenile man in old Eagle Street Theater, in Buffalo, then under the management of Messrs. liarr arren, ot whose company I was at that time a member.

The fire by thk time was devouring the flies, which extented aliove and across the stage, and thtfrigging aloft, still higher up, was one hissing, crack ling canopy of flame. Fierce red tongues were licking the rail along the fly gallery to the proscenium, closing the only opening of escape to the unfortu nate girl. Julian .finding that she was deaf to hk cries, determined to save or perish with her, and dashed madly up the stairs leading to the fly gallery." The fire alarm had 'een sounded through out the city. The firemen were already at work, and the Rahel of confusion at tending all such scenes were enacted over again. The watchman stood at hk now dangerous post where Julian had left him, in hopes that Mabel would make an effort for her life and jump from the gallery. He hurriedly ex plained to the firemen, who had by this time reached the st;ige, the great peril of the poor girl, and there wan no lack of brave men ready and willing tori.-k even lite to save her. fhe was no longer visible from the stage, lor a gr.itt wnll ot hre nai risen up. com pletely oliHcumig her with its li ;lit. Then, above the din mid fern In I con fusion of sounds, was heard a shriek so piercing, so pregnant of agony, that strong men trembled and hearU stood still. All eyes were riveted on the spot where Mabel was last seen. A moment more, and Julian emerged from the dressing-room with Mabel in his arms. Dashing through the flames, he gained the edge of the fly gallery, was seen to stagger for a moment; but finally, niustgring hk remaining strength,he leajied with hk precious bur den (which he had hastily muffled in various articles of costume) to the stage below a depth of twenty-four feet. A mattress, the stage carpet and other articles of soft goods were previosly ar ranged to recieve them. Better far had the unfortunate couple perished at once in the flames. It would have spared one of them days of dreadful suffering, and the other long years ot imbecility worse than death, They were taken to their lodgings, fol lowed by a melancholy train of actors and firemen, rendering all the assistance within their scope. Although there was no outward sign of fire on the poor girl 8 person, except the loss ot he beautiful dark brown hair, still she had inhaled its fiery breath and power on earth could save her. Julian was also in a critical condition Ilk hands and face were fearfully blis tered, and he, too, had lost hk curling locks : a painful disguise the poor fel low wore, and it was hard, indeed, to recognise in hk mutilated and suffering person the gay and light-hearted youth of a few hours previous. The terrible ordeal which he passed through had deprived him of all consciousness, while Mabel had passed away into that long and quiet sleep which knows no sorrow, knows no pain. Julian awoke to learn that she whom he so tenderly loved was dead. He re ceived the sad intelligence without murmur, but the agony expressed upon hk features called forth the tenderest sympathies of all present. For hours he lay with closed eyes, silent and mo tionless, as it he, too, had gone .out into the night, a cold and weary pilgrim, in search ot her. At length the paroxysm passed away, the lethargy was broken, he was roused to life, but his reason was dead and buried. And so he lived for two and twentv years, a helpless maniac, capable of neither joy nor sorrow. The Death of Washington, Seventy-six years ago died George Washington, the first President of the United States. On December 12 h noted in hk diary that "about one o'clock it began to snow, soon after to had, and then turned to a settled cold rain." He had gone out in the morn ing mounted on his horse to make the round of his estate, and notwithstand ing the change in the weather, he con tinued hk ride until three o'clock in the afternoon. On the following morning a heavy fall of snow prevent ed turn trom taking his customary ride. and he complained of a sore throat and a cold he had taken the previous day. iJunng the ensuing night he was taken extremely ill, and by day break hk condition excited the hiost serious alarm. Although able at times to speak during the day of December 14, he breathed with difficulty, and continued to fail until between ten and eleven o'clock at night he calmly ex- pired. There was nothing remarkable aoout the death ot Creorge Washing ton, ihe manner ot his death was like the manner of hk lie, strikingly il lustrative of hk character. Other great soldiers have died in their beds sur rounded by their families and friends, but with their own minds filled with the visions of glorious war, or the terrible recollections of defeat ; other freat rulers have died in retirement, ut with the fancy that they were still wielding the rod of empire shutting out the viev of death. George Wash ington died as any Virginia country gentleman might die, with hk last thoughts given to those who were dear est to him, and to the settlement of hk own temporal and spiritual affairs. Hk last act was to feel hk own pulse, and hk last word was a request that he might be decently and unostenta tiously buried. A few hours before hk death he requested Mrs. Washing ton to bring him two wills which she would find in hk desk. On being Drought to him lie directed her to burn one, as it had lieen superseded by the other and was of no further use. After this he remarked to hk friend Mr. Lear: "I find I am going; my breath cannot last long. I believed from the first that the disorder would lie fatal. Do you arrange 'and record all my late military letters and papers. Arrange my accounts and settle my books, as you know more nlout them than any one eke ; and let Mr. Rawlins msh recoiding my letters which he as begun." Late in the afternoon he saitl to hk physician : "Doctor, I die iird, put 1 am not alraul to go. htill later, he said to the same gentleman : X tcel 1 am going; 1 thank yon tor your attentions, but I pray you to take no more trouble about me;, let me go off quietly ; I cannot last long." A lew moments betore his death he made hk request concerning hk burial, and on receiving the assurance of his friend that he was understr Td he simply said: ix is wen, anu composed nimselt tor is final departure from thk world. his was the quiet, uneventful death scene in the career ot the first Presi- lent. There was no startling death bed utterance that men might learn and repeat as the last words of the rather of Ins Country. There was no message sent out to the ieoplo he had loveu so wen and served so faithfully. He had done hk whole duty by lik country and his fellow-man, and now, ill thk supreme moment, his thoughts of earlh were confined to his own do mestic circle, or wondered lieyond his home only to contemplate hk "meeting with the Divine Killer of the universe. Washington died like a brave and good man, but the example he set before his country was in his life, and not in his death. His death liclongcd to his (rod, hk family and himself ; hk life was his country's.

SOMETIMNU ABOUT NrriHXILYCKRISE, GUN COTTON ANI GIANT POWllER The fearful explosion of dynamite, and consequent loss of life at Bremer- haven, will remind many of a similar disaster which took place at Aspmwall some nine years since. The dynamite on the pier at Jlremerliaven, it is said, was in the personal baggage of a pas senger. 1 he nitro-glycerine wnicn ex ploded on board the steamship H.uro uean. at Aspinwall, in 18C6, was in voiced as "oil." Its powerful prop erties were quite unknown at that time in this country. Ihere were about seventy cases of tho stuff in the hold ot the ship, which had been trans ported from Hamburg to Hull, Eng land, and thence to .Liverpool by rail. It will never be known whether the explosive quality of the compound had been heightened by partial decompo sition in the tropical heat ot that lati tude, or whether the careless handling by the laborers in the vessels hold brought about the disaster. The steamer was blown up, many people were killed, and much shipping and wharf property and buildings were wrecked. ' Great indignation was expressed agai::.-t the shippers who had disguised their con signment in order to insure its trans portation, lu the shape in which it was carried it completely deceived the very people who should have been made aware ot the dangerous proiier- ties of the cargo which they were ob liged to handle. Thk shipment was designed for San Francisco, and, by a curious coincidence, a similar disaster occurred in that city at about the same time. " Tidings .of the two explosions reached isew lork almost simulta neously. . An express comiiany in San Francisco had received, in the course of business, a case containing several packages ot nitro-glycerme, the outer wooden coveriug of which was satu rated with the perilous stuff leaking from the inside cases. JNobody called for it, and some man was instructed to open it in order to see what the con tents might be. The first blow of his mallet caused on explosion which killed eight or ten people, wrecked the ware house, wounded many persons, aud de stroyed property to the value of two hundred thousand dollars, iioth these disasters occurred when the manufac ture of nitro-glycerine was yet new, and while the art of packing it safely tor transportation was comparatively unknown. Ot the various serious ac- of the late Mr. Trask, it k difficult to remember any sect, as it k quite im ossible to recall any nation or people among whom its use does not in a great er or less degree prevail. It certainly seems to supply a human need or alle viate a human craving v;hich k univer sal, bounded by no lines of latitude, nor circumscribed by conditions of climate. The Esquimau, living under the arctic borealis, likes hk pipe as well as the naked Papuan, ar the Ama- zoian Tupinamba, blackened wkh the equatorial sun ; the hill-dweller as well as the inhabitant of the plains: the jolly Jack-tar breasting all seas and sliding through the zones like a water- bird, as well as the subterranean toiler in the mine, on whose labor the sun beam does not beat and whose girdling iron walk are only a larger grave for lorn as the lesser and later one but for the fund of solace in hk cheek or the black dhudeen in hk jaws. In fact it may be said that with the exception of some women and ehildren m the United States aisarEurope, the entire human race are addicted to this habit, and it k therefore of first consequence that a staple in such universal use should not be tampered with as if it were only bread, or r, aer, or wine, oil, or other commodity whose use k comparatively restricted and local. Our reporters, however, inform us that a fellow-citizen or two have embarked in the business of making the worse appear the better tobacco; in other words, they take the refuse of this world-embracing staple and by putting it through certain chemical and thermal processes bring it out in shape calculated to impose on old to bacco-worms as a hrst-riass article. These ingenious fellow-citizens declare that the weed k decidedly improved by these immersions and manipula tions; that they supply to it refine ments of taste and flavor which na ture intended- to impart, but in some way failed in her intention. For the sake of the smokers who smoke, and the chewers who chew, and the snuffers who fuuff these products, we hope that thk is true, though we should not be surprised if they had extolled their new-tangled craft somewhat, and a sumed for their improved tobacco virtue which the -conservative t- nokseur would deny to it. The End of Polygamy. In the recent case of the United States against George Reynolds, tried in bait Liake City tor bigamy, Chief cidents which have happened from a I Justice White very clearly defined the careless use of tbk explosive, that by I crime and told the jury that it was no which eight men were killed and several were wounded, at Bergen, N. J., in 1867, was most notable. In thk instance a laborer attempted to dry a can of nitro-glycerine by thrust ing a red-hot poker into it. We now know enough of most powerful ex plosives to. handle them, at least, with great care, and to transport them from place to place without incuriug any such awful penalties of ignorance as those which followed its ignorant dis position less than ten years ago. In deed, the article of commerce known as dynamite, which caused the explo- defense to say that the "defendant was under the influence of a religious be lief, which amounted as he conceived, to inspiration, which he believed as thoroughly as k possible within the limit of the human mind. Thk k ac cording to the law and common sense. A citizen of New York might believe in the religious obligation of human sacrifice, and nolxxly could lawfully interfere with his enjoyment ot the belief; but let him undertake to make a sacrificial offering of a man, woman or child, and he would speedily hear trom the police, lucre is no crime siou at Bremerliaven, was the result of which might not go unpunkhed if the Alfred Nobel's experiments to discover a form in which nitro-glycerine might be safely handled. Aobel, a Swedish chemist of Hamburg, after studying the composition and properties ot such explosives as the " wood-gunpowder ot bchultze, and the compressed gun- cotton ot, Abel, introduced nitroleum, or triuitiue, to the world on a large scale. It was not until 1865 that it became well-kuown in the arts, and the series of shocking disasters which followed its introduction brought it at once into great disiavor; those wno saw its immense value as an explosive dreaded its hidden forces. It was then proposed to ditl'use the explosive fluid sand, or chemical substances, by which means the explosive force would be divided, and any latent heat would be conducted ofK Another plan was to mix the oil with wood naptha, which ould form a non-explosive compound, the naptha being easily drawn off' when the iiitroleiim k required hr use. None of these expedients were found practicable, and the latest result of all experiments was dynamite, or giant powder, llns is simply pulverized silex, saturated with nitro-glyceriue. A cheap substitute for the silex is a deposit of infusorial earth, found in some parts of Germany, and which answersevery purpose of the artificially prepared material. The saturated mass looks like a damp grayish sugar. If carelessly prepared, the nitro-glycerine settles or collects in drops, and of course, dangerously exnlosive. Of each ot these compounds it may be said, as of fire ; that "it isa good ser- ant but a bad master. Kailroad building, and all enterprises requiring blasting, tunneling or excavation, have been vastly cheaiiened by the intro duction of this tremendous explosive. It was estimated at one tune that the Hoosac Tunnel would require less than onc-holf'the time and money to finkh by using liitro-glvcerine than any ordinary process would involve. In blasting, the bore-holes may be smaller and further npart with uitro-glyceriiie or dynamite than with gunjiowder. Although an explosion with these modern' comiKmnds is extraordinarily sudden, the mass to lie detached is not lrowifout with the violence of a gun powder blast, but is shattered ajid fis sured without much projection. The increased volume of an exploded charge of nitro-glycerine or dynamite is enor mous as compared with gunpowder, being alniut thirteen times larger than that of powder. There have been :my so-called "perfectly safe" ex- losive preparations, of which dynamjte id dualine are the newest. It k evi- nt that, like the non-explosive burn ing fluids teddlisl about the country, ie.se are not to be trusted implicitv. Several mysterious and disastrous ex- losions have occurred from them, that Bremerliaven, so far as we know, mg one against which no watchful ness on the icirt of tin; shipping agents could guard. There is no such thing as a sate explosive. The most nearly iife, under ceitain conditions, not vet clearly understood, may be insidiously, by the ojicrutiou of the laws of chein- try, transformed into uncontrollable lemeuls. A'. 1'. Timr.

Y. Evening iW. Raw Cotton as a Dressing for Wounds. Surgeons in Europe nd America are now using raw cotton sl a dressing for wounds, and with excel lent effect. A layer of cotton spread osrer a wound or over the surface ex- nosed bv amputation, protects the part thoroughly, filters the air, and prevents the access ot floating germs, whether poisonous or not. It k im portant that the cotton be fresh and of good quality; and it it is to be used in a hospital, it should not be previously exposed to the air of that hospi'al ; moreover, a dressTig should never be renewed in the foul air of a ward. In time of war and on the battle-field the cotton would prevent much suffer ing. "In civil practice, as remarked by Dr. Van liuren, "it promises to be useful principally in the large hos pitals of great cities, where pyremia and erysipelas are always liable to be come epidemic, in preventing tne M)koning of open wounds by those diseases, aud also by thus enabling surgeons to save limns wnicn mignt otherwise require amputation. ine cotton alxive described k that manu factured in the form of wadding.

Prof. Artus, who has devoted him self to the discovery ot the reason why woolen clothing, when washed with soap and water, will insist upon shriuk - . i - i i ing ana Dccoming imcK, ana acquir ing that iieculiar odor and feeling which so annoys housekeejiers, says these evil effects are due to the de composition of soap by the acik pres ent in the perspiration and other waste of the skin which the clothing absorbs. The fat of the soap is then precipitated upon the wool. These effects may be prevented by steeping the articles in a warm solution ot wash ing soda for several hours, then adding some warm water and a tew drops ot ammonia. The woolens are then to be washed out, and rinsed in lukewarm water. HOW TO CLEAN PAINT, If cleanliness k, as some folks say, one of the arts, all that helps it should be made known. .Doors, walls, or anything that k painted, may be cleaned with a piece of soft flannel dipped iu warm water, then wrung. and sprinkled with finely powdered r renefn chalk. Ihe paint on bem rubbed with thk will become quite clean, and will be saved from the de structive action of soap. DURABLE BEDDING. A woman who has raked a large family recommends housekeepers to take a good quality of unbleached cot ton, run up the breadths for top and lining ot quilt, and then color it with any cheap domestic dye, such as japon ica, annatto, whiteoak bark, or any such thing. Quilt them coarsely, and put more cotton batting in than would be needed for ordinary bed quilts. They will wear years longer than ordinary new calico, and are especially to be desired in large families of boys. If desired, outside spreads may be' made ot more fanciful materials.

One of the most abundant and useful animals of tropical South America k the turtle, which yields to the natives a large supply ot food m its flesh and eggs. So eagerly and incessantly has the animal been hunted lor many years that, great asare itsuunibers atthe pres ent time, they have susceptibly dimin ished within a quite recent period, and the day seems not far distant when it may be altogether exterminated. Ac- i: . r l.' n they have not so wide a choice of oc cupation or amusement. Ibis ptten causes women who are naturally capa ble of considerable mental exertion, to use their powers in an inordinate and unnatural, degree, until they be come masculine in manner, or eccen tric. Often they fall into the opposite extreme. Not being possessed ol suffi cient force of character to take up any really intellectual pursuit, and being easily influenced by any unusual ex citement, they rest their hopes of hap piness on such slight foundations that when these fail them they have no power to rally. The vacant mind broods over trifles for sheer want of occuiation ; inaction produces a reeling of fatigue which induces a desire for solitude; solitude soon gives rise to melancholy, and a general weariness of exktence makes the sufferer only Uk glad to embrace any chance of relief.

In the first place, it k an imposition on any well-bred girl, to keep her up later than half-past 10 o'clock, when you have the opportunity of seeing her often. If you always leave her with the wkh in her heart that you had staved longer, you gain so much. Never run the rkk of wearying her with your presence. Be just as earnest and straightforward as in your honorable dealing with men. Impress your friends with the worthiness and seriousness ol your love, so that vulgar and senseless bantering will appear to them as such. Love in religion the supremest hap piness, wear it manfully and proudly, but holily. Woo a woman bravely. If there k anything humihaUng to a woman, it k to have a lover whom she wkhes to honor, weak and vapid, ever yielding and half-afraid of her. She longs to tell him to "act like a man!
