Translated from the French of Jules Claretie by Arthur Darieu for the N. Times. His name was Jt'anCI'iu le Mon tiicr, and lie lived in the U nug of Hriiin, where his father omi'id a farm. lie was already a full rrown boy, delicate and bashful, and til thounh twt'nly yeursof ane, or over, he hardly dared to speak to Catli eriue Biii iiard, whom he adored. Caiheiine was a very lively anil f0(nl-lioarted liill" brunette. She liked Cliiudo Mennier, but it was only friendship, and tint was not whal Claude aked. That is, I inis take, he asked nothitip;. lie loved Ciiherine, that was all. Lie loved her because she was kind nnd pretty, and because she called him 'lear Claude," and would not laugh at him, like) most of the girls in the village generally did. IIo loved her because well, because he loved her. Much talk was eroing on then in the whole canton about smart 1'la- cial, the handsome farmer whom in) girl could resist. l'lacial was a style, good talker fine dancer and nngnilioent singer. None like hiin could anima'.e a par ty ; so much so that lie was called "the key of hearts' IT1 laughed at the sobriquet, and was none the less proud. (Jin) diy smart llacial noticed that Catherine Dernard was pretty. He at once made up his mind that hc should love him. As tlio poor girt was Kinu una cretuiois she eoon loved him, but soou repented. l'lacial abandoned her. She grew pale and pad ; she looked like a flower at ihe hands of death. 'Now Catherine," said Claude Mennier to her ono day. ''You are vcy much ahlicted, and you keep to yourself the secret ol your troub les. Am I not your Iriend .' Aud can't you allow mo to bear half of your sorrows?' She looked at h;m, her eyes glit-. teriusr with teirs. lie teemed so kind ami ufflicted that she spoke. iShe told Clauds cveryihinir, and Claude was so struck that he thought ho would die. "Ah 1 poor Catherine I" he screamed, crying like a child. "Poor Catherine! poor Catherine!'' hhe told him she was soon to be come a mother, anil that her father, old B.rnard, would shortly know everything. 'No," said Claude, "he will know nothing. IIo went to meet Piacial, and said to him : "You must marry Catherine." Piacial burst out laughing. "Do you refuse ?'' Piacial kept on laughing. "Well," said Claude!, "you ure a coward and a villiun ! Don t fpeak to me iu the street, or I'll slap you!" He sprang out and ran to Ber nard b resiuence. uamerino was there. "Monsieur Bernard," said he, "I am not rich, but like to woik. I love your daughter Ca'h erltie, and would be happy to have her as tny wile. ould you con-. sent to it ? "Tuko her, replied old Bernard. The wedding took place quiet lv, none attending' but 'the family. Alter all was over Claude said to his wife: "Dear Catherine, past is pjst. Let all be forgottoa ; the future is out a. I will love you forever, and if you only love me a little I will ba happy." Nx month later Catherine guve birth to a boy. It created a big scaudal in Sirian, and mauy laughed at it heartily. Piacial luughed more and louder than the rest. But one day Claude small Claude, with ihin features, blonde hair and serene looks, seizsd Catherine' sedujer by the throat and forced him to bo eilent. TUis occurred iu the sqftare before a large crowd. Smart Piacial got up from tlm ground, badly bruis d aud uttetly covered with blood, amtd.-l most ahuinelul shouting. tMuee that event nono dared laugh at Claude except in low tones. "I was wrong to got mid," thought Claude, "it is t.oe. But it was not I be insulted ; it was Catli enne Catbci rite was tt wars a giod and deserving wotran. They were a happy couple in spite of nil. The child was becoming a youth, and Claude hud desired imt he should bear Ins name. lie called him his son . it iiJ Catherine loved her child wilh frenzy a thing which is not very common in our country, where peasants prefer tlnir cittlo to llieir children. Indeed, she only lived forhis sake; she kissed him all day. Born in misfortune, little Claude inspired her perhupa with moie love yet. ' Love him well?" Claude would say. "I love him maybe more than you do." lie liked the child because he was Cuthciino'a joy and her own iff. The kind hearted man was full of solicitude aud regards for his wife. The wits in the canton and the phil osophers ut the Cafe Napoleon shrugged up at that. Claude did not pay attention to their baying, he was happy. Little Claude had become a man, and Claude h msell was almost a old man. His hair was getting gray and his face was wrinkled : but ho was slill jolly, simple and kind as in former veins, believing all except evil ; trufc, devoted but sightly ptaitlcr dotard, as they said in short, a good-natured man. In tlio meanwhile little Claude drew a bad number and became a conscript. Claude was not rich ; they had always live I on strict economy to have the liitlo one educated like a moiisier. IIo had studied grammer, history, geography, mat iCinuiics. Should you huve asked him the date ol Nei'ou's death, or the crowning of Charlemagne, no doubt Iu could have answered. But the purchase ol all that science had cost heavy, and Claude was nearly poor. Mortgaging ot even selling his estate could not gnlier a sufhVieut sum lo buy a substitute. ' YVe must say that wo had war I hen, and substitutes were very costly, as a soldier in the army was considered a deait man. ''Oltentiines Catherine would say, I, also, wiil die ;" an J she wept bit teriy. But Claude nodded his head. "Nay, nay," said he. Tune was near when conscripts wei e to leave for the army. Now withstanding all steps and efforts, monev was not to be lound. The poor mother was constantly shed ding tears, ud Ktew weaker and weaker every d.iv. "Why do you lament so, my good uauiei liter said (Jlaule to her one day, soltly, "Is your son gone." "Ah!' she said, "if thev kill him I will die!" One day old Claude kissed Catli er.no una went out. Aight ci.nie uud none had seen him. II j wa eaget ly looked for. lor Catherine foresaw a cat .strophe. The body of JeatixClautlo Men nier was found in the pond of Mas suloux. At a short distance of that place a peasant picked up a slio of paper laying in the grass. "Who knows how to re..d handwriting ?" he asked. A little girl took the pa per and read : "Sons of widows arc rcver sol diers, Catherine." PEAC2 IN CUBA. The Errr Fnitlifjl :!e Oace .flare al Ileal. A Havana letter of February 23d says that the insiirgant chiefs have submitted to tho terms offered by tho Spanish government, ot which fuct there is no longer any doubt, and tho restoration of peace oa this isl rid may bo regarded 119 an accomplished laet. The 25th of tho present rnonili has been designated as the date on which the in-ur-gen 8 shab lav dovn their arms, and on the 23ih peace will be of licially proclaimed by tho governs inent. M.

Tne names are not yet given, but there is a probability that they will be when the returns are all in. It is sadlv suspccied that when the count is fully made up the inebriates will be able to show a m ajority, and that is a Cue spectacla under the very nose ol a temperance admin istration. FXPOSIXO CRUELTY. Vickabnrir Herald. The Ohio p ipers are exposing the brutal cruellies of the Ohio n.'iii- tcniiary. R"cently a prisoner was luken fiom his dungeon dead, and another was sen' from his sick bed to an iced buili nnd carried back to lie. Herenfier when Bob Inger soll and other philanthropists of the north want illuttraiions of heartless savagery we hope they will seek for them north ol the Ohio, where it seems they can be fouud ia abundance. BATHEB rSCULIAIt. Raymond Gazetta. Our views may be peculiar and immaterial, but we are firm in hold ing Ihcm, and they are that Mi. Lamar has assumed the proper po sition. We do no!, of course, adopt j hi 8 views on the silver question, ttut with reference to the instruc tions" be in clearly right. The old Virginia theory was "obey or re- No. 11 sign ;" but the greatest of all Amer ican statesmen, Mr. Clay, established the other theory, that an American senator is not the loot-ball or the weather cock of a legislature, but the rightful, and proper, nnd coiisti tuiional representative of the state is tho senate of tho nation. We honor Mr. Lamar for his bold nnd manly position on this subject, and when ho appeals from the legisla ture lo the people, as- he will do, we shall certainly sustain him, although wo think his position ou the silver bill utterly wrong. $1,000,000,000 1 if. Y. Snu. Turkey is required lo pay to Russia on inilt tunny that amounts to just about $800,000,000. and an additional $2011.000,000 hi bonds, or in all $1,000,000,000. This is the amount of tho money indemnity that Germany obtained from France after the war of 1870-71 ; and it looks as though Russia irt arranging the business had taken tho cuo from Germany; but France could pay ihe indemnity, anj did pay it, while Tin key is too hard up lo pay any ptirtol it. So Russia has required Turkey lo cede tho territory and ihe lot tresses described in jester day's dispatches, nnd to turn over the revenues derived from her Irib utaries and nrnes. BOB INGERS0LL- Maine IiuprrHoiaiia About llie Cherub leril Tho -Tlau whaliloiiea In Ilia llnlrcd to Chrifttiana. From a Wuthington Letter. That cherub "devil of a fellow known as Bob Jngersoll is attract ing attention at the cupiial. His checks are pink, and they puff out like the inflated cheeks ot Raphael's eherubi. His eyes are big and blue and innocent, und his lips pout out iuluntile pleasure at the Christian Torld. His hands are fat and dim pled. He wears a ring with a big set in it on his third linger ; he has a clean, while, bald head that looks like a well-washed California tur nip, and California diamonds glisten on his breast. This handsome Heath en said to me that his daughters, both grown, had never heard a ser mon or been to church in their lives. That they had never liear'd a blessing asked at the table but once when they were visiting ut the home of a deluded Christian relative. When grace was said, the Ingersoll family had hard work to keep their laces siraight. Most persons even devoid of ordinary religious fervor would not see anything execsuive'y funny in a man who believes in a supreme being thanking that Fa'hcr lor food ; but to the Inge.-solls it was sidc-spliuing. Not only does the paterlamilias not believe in God, hut he don't believe in churches or s moots. "In schools pupils study geography lor years. A per son wiio ha? no sense has no use of geography, anyone who has renecr.n learn ab the geography they' need in fifteen minutes,'' said tho start ling relormer. ''In arithmeiic eve rything is studied wrong. Geom etry should be the first form of mathematics. You studied a cube root bt fore you knew what a cube was what il looked like, how it was drawn didn't you ? Very well. That's all wrong. In grammar a scholar don't waut but one lesson. Veibiand nouns, adverbs, pronouns, and every irregular verb ought to be scratched out ol the language ; irregular verbs do all the damage, caue ull the trouble." Not alone does this free-thinker oppose churches and schools, but he is a disbeliever in the old notion ol watchfulness on the part of parents. "Sneak alter your children waich them thrjuuh the key-hole, uud they will sup iuto purgatory belore vour eyes. Now, for a man who "believes not ' iu a hell or i's nnte-room pur gatory, the siatement ihat 11 you watch a child too closely he will enter a place that ha 110 existence, is n Ingersollian syllogism whose conclusion I derived Irotn Iuaer solium premises not laid down iu the rhetoric now in common use. But IiiL-ersoll is a law onto him self. He does not ft'ck to rules laid down in the bo k-. He believes iu nothing but what is capable of proof. He be'ictcs nothing out What can be demonstrated. Several ladies were di-cu sing Ingeigjll. "He beiievea nothing but what is capable of dcnronsiiaioc," said a brighi-iyed woman. "lto-s he believe tint he hi.a a reasoning faculty ? ' asked a quiet invalid. "Oh. yes, of course." 'Ho does he know it? he lias never felt itr r smelt ii.

'.1 THE CLOCK OF CLOCKS- A FrnnerlTnnian Oiltdaratbe Work ot llabrcrbl. of Sn4borg. From the K'oftding tuple. In -Mengel's buildmg is now on exhibition, in all probability, the most wondeiful clock in the world. It was built by Stephen D. Kngle, a watchmaker at Hazlcton. He wai about twenty years in perfecting the clock. Mr. lieid paid Engle $5000 for it. Engle never saw tho Slia.-bufg clock. In lact, ho lias not traveled more than two hun dred miles from homo at any time. This clock stands eleven feet high. At its base it is about four feet wide nnd at the top about two. It is about three feet deep at tho base ; gradually less toward ihe lop. Its colors arc brown and gold. Tho Si rasburg clock is thirty feet high, yet its mechanism is not so int'-t-cale, nor lias it as many figures as ihe Hazlcton clock. Tlio Strasburz clock's figures are about three feet high and the American clock about nine inches. Three minutes before the hour a pipe-organ ir.sido tho clock p'ays an anthem. It has five tunes. Bells are then rung, and, when tho hour is struck, douhtb doors in the alcovo open and a fig ure of Je.-us nppears. Double doors to i he left then open, and the apos tle.' appear slowly, one by one, iu procession ; as taey apprar aud pass Jesus, they turn toward him. Jesus bows, the aposilo turns again and proceeds through the double doors in aa alcove on the right. As Peter approaches, Satan looks out of a window above and tempts him. Five times tho .devil appears, find when Peter parses, denying Christ, the cock flaps his wings and crows. When Judas appears, Satan comes jlown from his window, and follows Judas out in the procession,'' and then goes back up to his place, to watch Jud-is. appealing ou both sidjs. As the procession has passed Judas and the three Marys disap pear, aud the doors are Closed; The scene can bo repeated seven times in an hour, if necessary ; nnd the natural motion of the clock pro duces it four times per hour, whereas the Strasburg brocession is n.ado but once a day, at 12 o'clock. Below the piazza is' tho main dial, about thirteen inches iu diameter. To its right is a figure of Time, with an hour glass. Ahove this is a window at which appear Cgures representing youth, manhood, and old age, To the left of the dial is a skeleton, rep resenting Death. When the hour hnnd approaches the first quarter Time reverses his hour-glass and strikes ono bell with his ey tho, when another bell insido responds. Then Childhood appears instantly. Win n tho hour-hand approaches tho second quarter, or half hour, there are heard tho strokes of two belts. Then Youth appears, and the organ plays a hymn. After this, Time strikes two and reverses his hour glass, when two bells respond in side. One minute after this a chime of hells is heard, when a folding door opens in tlie upper porch, and one at (he right of tho court, when the Saviour comes walk ing out. Then the apostles appear iu profession. Tho clock also tells of the moon's changes, the tides, tha seasons, days, and day of tho month andjear, and the Ftgns of the zodiac ; and on top a soldier is constantly 011 gaurd, walking backward and forward. As the hours advance Mauhood, Old age, and Death take part of ihe panorama. LAWS OF MISSISSIPPI. Paaaeil at the Kegnlnr 1S79.
