Crowning the Wisest. Not many years ago it happened that a young man from New York visited London. His father being connected with several of the mag nates of the British aristocracy, the young American was Introduced : nlo the fashionable . circles of ire metropolis, where, in conse quence of his very fine personal ap pearance, or that bis father was re ported to be very rich, .or that he was a new figure on the stage, he attracted much attention, and be came quite the favorite of the ladies. This was not at all relished by the British beaux, but as no very fair pretext offered for a rebuff, they were compelled to treat him civily. Thus matters stood when the Hon. M. P. and lady made a party to ac company them to their country seat in Cambridgeshire, and the American was among tbe invited guests. Nu merous were the devices to which these devotees of pleasure resorted in order to kill that old fellow who will measure his hours, when he ought to know they are not wanted, and tho ingenuity of every one was taxed, to remember or invent some thing novel. The Yankees are proverbially ready of invention, and the Ameri- can did honor to his character as a man accustomed to freedom of thought. He was frank and gav, and entered into the sports and amusements with that unaffected en- jovment which communicated a part his Iresh leehngs to the most worn fashionists in the party. His good nature would have been sneer- at by some of the proud cavaliers, had he not been such a capital shot, and he might have been quiz- zed, had not the ladies, won by his respectlul and pleasant civilities, and his constant attentions in the draw- ng room and saloon, always show- themselves his friends. But a combination was at last formed among a trio ol dandies, staunch pat- rons o! the Quarterly, to annihilate American. They proposed to vary the internal waltzing and pi- ping by the acting of charades and playing various games, and having as interested one of those indefatigable I ladies who always carry their point the scheme, it was voted to be the thing. Alter some few charades had disposed of, one gentleman beg leave to propose the game cal "Crowning of the Wisest." This played by selecting a judge of the game, and three persons, either la or gentlemen, who are to con for the crown by answering sue on I cessivpl v the vnrinns nnestinn u,hirh J . . . rest of the nartv are at bprfv ask. The one who is declared to sat been the readiest and the haD- er r i-t n hs answers rece ves the my crown Our American, much against his inclination, was chosen among the turee candidates. He was aware his position, the society with to ot which he was mingling, required of the ability to sustain himself. was, to be sure, treated with dis tinguished attention bv his host and hostess, and generally by the party, this was a favor to the individu and not one of the company un derstood the character of Republicans appreciated the Republic. The worthies had arranged that turn for him should fall in succes- sion.and be the last. The first one, a perfect exquisite, and with an air of ineffable condescension, put question: "If I understand rightly the gov. ernment of your country, you ac knowledge' no distinction of rank, consequently you can have no court standard for the manners of a gen tleman. Will you favor me with in formation where your best school of politeness is to be found "For your benefit," replied teen ing, like sand is price the most American, smiling calmly, "I would mon recommend the falls of .Niagara; a contemplation of that stupendous gular wonder teaches humility to the proudest, and numan notningness to ago, t . , , . -1 I 0 vainest, u reouKes me inner, arouses the most stupid; in of it turns men trom their idols, when we acknowledge that God ly is Lord, we feel that men are equals.

"You must maintain, as you do present, that a monarchy is the wi sest, the purest, the best government, which the skill of man ever devised, and that a democracy is utterly bar barous. Rlv cootrymen are prover bially fond of argument, and will meet you on both of these questions, and, if you choose, will argue with you to the end of your life." The murmur was renewed, but still without any decided expression of the feeling with which his answer had been received. the third then rose from his seat, and with an assured voice which seemed to announce a certain tri umph, said: "I require j'our decision on a deli cate question, but the rules of the pastime warrant it, and also a can did answer. You have seen the American and the English ladies; which are the fairest?'' The young Republican glanced round the circle. It was bright with flashing eyes, and the sweet smiles, which wreathed many a lovely lip. might have won a less determined patriot from his allegiance. lie did not hesitate, though he bowed low to the ladies as he answered! "The standard ol female beauty is, J believe, allowed to be the power ot exciting admiration and beget ting love in our sex, and consequent ly those ladies who are most ndmir out ed, and beloved and respected bv the gentlemen, must be the fairest. Now I assert confident ly that there is not a nation on earth where a woman is so truly beloved, so ten jderly cherished.so resrctfully treat- ed, as in the Kenublic of the United States; therefore the American ladies are the fairest. But," and he again bowed low, "if the ladies before whom I have now the honor of ex pressing my opinion were in my country, we should think them Americans." The applause was enthusiastic and, after the mirth had subsided so to allow the Judge to be heard he directed the crown to the Yan kee A Tower of Sktlls.

Important Discovery. RENDERED FLUID BY MIXING WITH ROSIN. Professor OlmsteBd.'of New ila ven, has lately made the' important discovery that, by adding ono pound 01 powdered rosin , to three pounds of lard, well stirred together! the mass becomes semi-fluid at -72 deg. Fahrenheit, and. .on being melted, which it does at' SO den. notwith. standing if melted alone the rosin ra. quires JUO deg. and the lard 97 de ui neat, me compound will remain transparent and limpid at that tem perature. As it cools, a pellicle be gins to form on the surface, at 87 degrees, and at 76 degrees it remains dense semi-fluid. The discovery of the abova nam ed fact will be of great importance to those who use lard lamps, as the iara is rendered more fluid by the rosin, ana the power ol ilyjmination increased two-fifths; yet after two hours burning, it loses its brilliancy on account 01 tne wick becoming clogged. This will not be an im portant objection in families, while in point of economy the gain will be considerable, for lard is worth thiee or four times as much as rosin. To mechanists, the discovery is very important, as it enables them iu ums iara insieau 01 on, which is not only saving in cost, but, what is of far more importance, the addition of the rosin completely neutralizes the quality of acidity in the lard, which corrodes melals, particularly No and copper, to such a degree itis unfit to apply to anything not n constant use. frolessor Olmstead ed says: a thin coating of the compound laiu upon a grate or sheet-iron stove 1 . r ..- 1 . Keep 11 iree irom rust all summer, al- his though stored in a damn place. To soap makers, the discovery is also important. II one pound of the compound is ndded to two pounds of common Windsor soap, the quali ty is greatly improved, and the ten dency that soap has to grow rancid, when in use or kept moist, 'is thus entirely prevented.,,!
