In an humble tenement, near tlie Miesifisifipi find Tennessee Railroad Depot, hard by Main street, lives Wm. Robertson, a. poor blacksmith Jo is a Scotchman. Ilia invention is si-j markallo ani; ihe circunjnlances whioli prompted it are . vcnliar, we propose to give a brief ske-cli I of h:s life, with a description of his ... i automatic wonder. William Robertson was born near Markinch, Scotland. He is now thirty-Bix years of o.rje. The death of his Tatlicr when e was quite youmr, caused him to e hired to a fanner, until ho had reiclied hi-i six teenth year. At LiehUime he was apprenticed to a blacksmith (or six years. His term havings expired lie made pn paration to Ieavihis native land and seek his fortine in the West.- Ho procured tht highest letters of commendation froi his em ployers, and started for the banarlas, where he ariived during t severe money crisis, and ho ou!d jret but small wages. Xotwilhitandiku; this he went to work eart.cstly in the chops of the Grand Truik Railwa.". whilo there he invented and moulded the ''Railway Frog." Ills now uni vcrrally used in rcpJacinr, wrecked trains. Robertsou competed his model and exhibited its tenderful advantages to the master echanio who stole the model atd hal it pat ented. He made a vast fortine out of it, never giving Robertson V cent. Some two years afterward I poor pi inter confided to Robertsorl tliat he had certain ideas which, iS:om bincd with machinery, would take the most invaluable job printing iV-vs. Robertson readily caught the ii-a? and immediately began to reoVe them to machinery. In three mon' time it was a glorious success. T printer agreed to patent it and divi the caruings with the mechanic, b after he procured the paknt in h own namohe never came near Robcr son an) more. .After the war, Robertson removed to Water Valley, where he obtained employment in the shops of the Mia girippi Central Railroad company. II is s-kill as a mechanic Boon gained him promotion aud ha ranked high with bis new employers. Some four years after this he entered Ihfl shops of the Mooilo and Ohio Railroad company at Jackson, Tenn. Hia genius served iiiin again a good par pose, as .he was again promoted to the head of his department. Hav ing been cheated out of both the glory tod profit of two important inventions he concluded not to invent anything more that would attract man, bat to devote his genius to the inven tion of something that would please the children. Some simple thing lhat would not make such a noise as to attract money-loving meo'a at- tontioj.Hia automatic natural mo- ot 4 'in liiift, 'I lit ( iilnctl'.ri fif (tm'fitir Ir'HIfaa lit nlfrl skin m ' f ft ' 11 I'l tilt fMt'l'af bli.if-H Hfi'l h', l' f W ff dr"J In riltr (I'liyrt Kia'imioa j '.! n'li fin" fir-iu lo'l whli inn-Is nil liMtriniiffit, fnlrifiiiirff Ia", i fiiKiil'niafj rrnrt( n tnmirt h i, ' 1 14 In nrf'ir'l itit't llil iri'ifi'ifi 'if t!if Jtliri-r-lal llifjf hrifi lb il.lhi fr r frill lii'lrnmr hid npran Itbuiil, d.itirri , rolled fht lr tyr, mi l tli-l ipiirrrtlisli.

About tlirco years rince he left J ieks-)n Tenn., and engaged to work at ihe Uuilro.nl ehop of tho Mia. & Tenn. R. R. He en tertained no idau abovobainga black smith diiriiii tho rest ol his davs. lie expected nothing from his jrenius at all. Hitherto a!l of his efforts had brought fame and fortune to others he was Btill a poor obscure bhv ksmith, These wero his thoughts when ho entered the .-Vein phi 9 Exposition of last year and there he saw for the first time I5erp;man's automaton vil lage, winch lias received the notcc of the press and people throughout America. It lias been held up as the most wonderful pieco of mechanism ever invented. Robertson paid twenty-five cents --to ?co it. He laughed at it; paid there -was not a single character that reprvsentel nat ural motion. Yet thoiands of peo plo crowded the plac, and said it was wonderful. TIkb wonder, that Robertson saw, was vast amount ofmonpj; Voe proprietors were -mailt jn!r. fir returned to lliis humble home a changed man. Ho thought of nothing e'so but Uergman's automa ton village, and here he could eclipse it. In.liH sleep ho dreamed lhat ho had eclipsed it. Ho awoke witli tho determination to begin the work. Doing poor ho had to work in tho Railroad SIjods during the day and work on the automaton at night, His bread and that of his faini!y depended on his daily labor. In seven months from the night of I113 dream he had completed to his satisfaction the au tomaton inuiistnat village now on exhibition in the Memphis Exposi lion. It is far superior to Rergman's invention in every respect. It re quired Bergman seventeen years to complete his, and Robertson finished a far moro difficult mechanical tri umph iu seven months. He exhib ited at the Louisville Exposition and at tho Mississippi State Fair, and it was tho admiration of all the visi tors. We will now give a discription of THE MACHINE. It is constructed on a table 3 feet wiJe by 8 feet, which rises 3 feet in height. It represents the "Progress of Civilization on" in the Railway, ,-teaiuboat, Velocipede, Steam mech anism. Sewing machine, and other iiturovements in incchanfcin. On the left end ot the village is a Rail way with a train complete, in perfect motion on it. The engine, tender, mail car iind pass, nger coaches are in the train. As it nears the station tho engineer pulls the steam-brake, the fireman rings tho bell, the brakes- :.ian turns tho brakes, and the pas- ngers put their head out of the indows, and the conductor steps on tho platform and waits until t train stops. In a moment be 8 his hand for it to start, tbo bell is oV.nded by toe tircnian, me engineer Dn tho steam and the splendid rain moves on as before. Par- alel st.itli tho railway is a coach road,Upoa which a horse, in the most I oral motion can be seen trot ting aVg, drawing the coach after biin. V the footway appears a maa on a flocipcde, ia full motion. Just ab this highway ia a steep hill, npol rLich is located a pretty cottage m its surroundiegs, There is a path leading to it from toe factory bcVr, in which is an old maa walkV in the most natural way up thcVuT, until he reachea the side door Ctho coltspe.

Those who knew said that the figures1 were perfect likenesses of the men tiiey represented, all of whom work ed in tho shops with the mechanic. At a given signal the bell in tho bel fry of tho factory rings nnd every thing stops and is quiet as if they never moved. Tho bell rings again and tho bun'ness goes on. This au tomata machine is wound up by a key and is run by the power of weights. It ia altogether mechanical, and is the delight and wonder of all who see it. Its inventor is anxious to ui-gui inu worn oi someiiiing on 0 1 -: i r ., , larger scale, which he proposes to ex hibit at the great Centennial Expo sitor in Philadelphia. He is a de- sei fing ntdjij but for his extreme modesty would hovo receded that puld'c notice he is so justly et. titled to Wo predict thut Robertson's au tomatic invention he proposes for the Centennial Exposition, will be the grandest achievement in mechanism displayed there. His genius will yet win its reward- If has already lakenthe lead in mechanism. now Feeblas Asked Kan. the Cld Peebles hat just asked Mr. Terri weather's daughter if she would give him a lift cut of bochelordotn, and she had said "yes." ,. Ic thcrclore bo came absolutely ueccs.-ary to gel the old man's permisrion, so that, as Pee bles said, arrangements might be made for hopping the conjugal twig Peebles said he'd rather pop the in terrogatory to all of old Mcrriweath" cr's daughters, and his sisters, and his female- cousin, and his Auut Hannah in tho country, and the whole of his female relations than at-k old Merri- weathcr. Rut it had to be done; and so he sat down aud studied out speech, which he was to disgorge to old Mcrriweathcr the vci y first chance he got to shy it at him- So Peebles dropped in on him cue Sunday even ing, when all the family had mean dcred to class meeting, and fouud him doing a sum in beer measure, tryiug to calculate the exact number of quarts his interior would hold with out blowing the head off of him. "How are you. Pecb ?" said old Mcrriweathcr, as Peebles walked in, as white, as a piece of chalk and trem bling as if lie had swallowed a cou densed earthquake. Peebles was afraid to answer, be cause lio wasu t sure about that speech. He knew he had to keep his grip on it while he had it there, or it would slip away from him quicker than a greased eel through an augur hole. So he blurted right cut: 'Mfr. Merriweather ?ir: Perhaps it may not be unknown to you that during an extended period of come five years I have been busily engaged in the prosecution of a commercial enterprise?' 'Is that so, and keepin it a secret all the timo, while I thoght you was tending htore. . Will, by Geoige you're one of -'era now ain't yer?"

'Mr. Merriweather, sir,' said Pee bles, frantic with dirpaii , 'it may be unknown that my earthly possessions are engaged to enter wedlock five years with a sufficiently lonely man who is not good for commercial main tenancc ' 'The bloody duso he isn't, i Now you jus' g't up and git -olo ho., or I'll kneck what little brains out of you that you've got left.' W ith that old Merriweather took Peebles by the collar and shot him into tho street as if ho had just run against a locomotive going at tho rate of foriy miles au hour. Before old Mcn iweat'ier had a chance to shut the front door, Peebles had collected hi? leg and one thing and another that were lying around on the pavement, aud arranged himself in a vertical position, and yelled out: 'Mr. Merriweather Sir It may not be known to you which made the old man so savagely mad that he went out and sot a bull terrier on Peebles who went home half a pound lighter while Merriweather asserts to this day that they had to draw all the dog's teeth to get the flesh out of his mouth, for he lmd an awful holt for such a small animile.' , Jack McCanx.

Dr. Hudgins stated that ho felt tho operation of the stone In a prolonged throb from the wrlt, al most to tho elbow, and in a burning and tinkling in the hand, To the touch the hand of tho wounded arm was much warmer than the other hand. The application was made about 8 o'clock, p. in., and the stono dropped off at 4 o.clock o. m. It wos immersed in warm water, for an hour, dried and again applied.

Attaching a Menagerie. . When Jones' Jlcnngcrie wa3 in Millersburg the last time, the pro prietor wouldn't pay h'n bill, for ad vertising in the Morning Argus, and so the editor attached the cage con taining the hyena. Ihe Sheriff se cured the cage ond brought it lound to the Argus office, where it remains ed for several' weeks. The bill amounted to fifteen dollars ; and as the animal ate two dollars' worth of beef every day for four weeks, the omount of profit in thai particular form of collecting tho debt-did not seem to be encouragingly large. One afternoon tho hyena bioke looso and nearly chewed up the foreman, while the editor saved himself only by suddenly climbing out on the roof. The hyena tore around through that sanctum. Upsetting typo, rolling in printer's ink, and feeding himself with poetry, and incendiary cditorrald on Cuba for four davs, during wLich the publication of the Argua was sus pended, and tho editor remained on the roof thinking solemnly about things. Finally, tho Sheriff p'aced a ladder against the building aod un dertook to destroy iho hyena with a phot-gun. He fired eighty-seven times before mnicting a mortal wound, and when, at lust, the edito rial crops returned the room lcoked as if battle tho of Waterloo, and three or four skirm'shes had been fought in it- Trobably no hyena was ever buried with more literatrre in i's stomach than lhat hyena of Jones' bad : and aa impreion did frrt ab.oad thut it tf ed, no' bora ihe wounds received from t' gun, butfnra i?3 inalnV . tho.-a lough ed'tcriisls and the' orig':l poatr the wojod-u 8 on kuife. l'cnii'y' in the Ar-' Y .
