NEWS FROM A KNOT-HOLE. Hrs. Jenkins lived in the other part of Rev. Mr. Caper's house, and thought herself fortunate in tho enjoyment of so great a privilege. Most good people like to be as ueur the minister as they can. Mrs. Jenkins did. Her part was merely an L,- built on the main struc ture, tier little attic, therefore, vras neighbor to the minister's study. Just in the corner of the minister's study floor was a knot-hole; a trifling sort of tiling in itself, but w hen once found to optn into Mrs. Jenkins' altic, of the widest importance in its consequenpes. When Mrs. Jenkin's finally became aware of so close a connection with the minister's family, she sat down to fold her hands and congratulate herself. Next, she formed her resolution not to let any good opportunity slip unim proved to inform . herself of matters that would otherwise remain dark to ber. Day after day, therefore, her ear and that knot-hole renewed their ac quaintance with one another. Some times she picked up quite a little bunch of news; ar tl sometimes she went off down stairs as hungry as ever. There was as much variation from day to day as there is in the price of stocks of ex change. Going up to her little attic one after noon to hear if anything fpecial was doing In the. Adjoining apartment, she svu3 d lighted beyond expressing to catch the sound of a voice. It was Mr. Capers iu conversation with his wife. Up she climbed, walked lip-toe across the garret floor, got dwn on her knees, and put l er ear as close to the knot holo as she could get it. Site even shut her eyes, lest some of the good things should eseape by that way. For awhile she did not understand anything clearly. Xow she heard Mrs. Capers laugh; then Mr. Capers stopped minute nnd laughed, too. This served to excite her th'5 more, and she pressed her head so close against the rough partition that when she came to go away she earned off splinters in plenty in ber hair Finally she heard sometning with distinilness. Mr. Capers was telling his wife who appeared to be in great glee, of a man who had been saying hard things to his wife. Said he, in the course of his remarks Mr. Jones got to abusing his family last. lie declared his wife shojild not go out visiting, and threatened to hut her up if she dared disobey him. A.s for going to those evening meetings. he declared he meant to put a stop to it; he had had enough of it. It did not to her any sort of good, and made a great deal of trouble and expense to him. He should put an end to it at any and every hazard!" Mrs. Jenkins started up in blank sur prise. A ow I want to know," said she herself "if our minister says that of Mr. Jones?" AVitliout waiting to hear a-y more Mrs. Jenkins folded her arms tightly and defiantly about her, and ftartfd down the stairs. The next thing sne did was to throw on her "things," and start off at higii speed for her friends. Mrs. Tautog. "Xow I want to know!" said the lat er, as Mis. Jenkins came uirougn tne ta:k entrance, '-Lo tell if that's you! Sit down, do. What's t!ie word Uiis .tfternoon? Heard anything very new iately?" "Oh, well, no I do' no, either; p'raps may be new to you though." "Why, what is it?" said she. "I dare .say 'tis. I'm not in tin; way of hearin' anything till everybody else lias picked up all clean. W ha' is it now?'' "No, your name sliant bo mentioned. But what is it? Mrs. Jenkins? What it? Do pray tell me suddin', for I'm dyin' to know." "It s no great affair after all, though. Still it's something. But this is all there to it Mr. Jones has got to abusin' his wife most dreadfully; and he de clares that if she thinVs of goin' out a visitin', he'll surely shut her up, where 6i;e can't get out so soon." "Of all the things in the world'" "Yes, and more'n that; he's even gone and forbid her goin' to evenin' meetings. What do you think o' such man as that?" "I think hes a monster!" "And so do I. But that ain't quite all. He jaws her all the lime, abuses her, threatens her, and keeps her In mortal fear of her life! Only to think it!" fc TTrtm .t;l l.nn.rlmnt ill tn.AI.,1.,. iii'ii uiujtu litre i rtuuu. it . i nvnua folks generally know it? How did you hear about it, I'd like to know." "Well, I'd as Uef tell you as not, Mrs. Tautog, but then you must promise ntto tell anybody else about it." "Oh, to be sure not. What should I gaddin around tne neig'ioornood tf.ll;.." allr!uu allilllt maiifi'tl. .1.1. u omnia "i". folks. ho did tell you, Uiougtif" 'Nobody told me exactly; but I hap ii W1 w f from ... .mister." 4fc,. J , 1 l-'U UOn I Say SOf Mrs. Jenkins nodded iu silence. LL... ,,,,,, , ,,r, ,, W ell, I do declare now! Wlio'd ever a thought of such a thing of Mr. a Jones! But I've seemed to take notice back along, that his wife was a good deal down-hearted, and sort o' melan choly like. And that must be the rea son, I know that explains it, all." "Ves," said Mra. Jenkins, "that's it." The latter did not stay very long af .er unbosoming herself of her heavy secret, when off posted Mrs. Tautog, armed and equipped for the brave bus iness she had in hand. The Ci st house she dropped into was Mrs. Mallory's. "Mrs. Mallory," said she, almost as soon as she was seated, "have you heard the news?" "Why, no," answered the astonished lady. " What is it pray?" And forthwith Mrs. Tautog related all that Mrs. Jenkins had been kind enough to teli her, and a good deal more saying nothing about the em bellishments she laid on in the course of her story. Mrs. Mallory was astonished, of course. And as soon as her visitor had v.ithdiawn, sho dons her bonnet and shawl and whips across to Mrs. Dinks. There the story was repeated with vari ations, and considerable additions. Then Mrs. Dinks took it up. And ttien Mrs. Murray got interested in it, and then Mrs. Filpot and so on, till every body had got hold of it, and had talked it up, and had passed judgment upon the man who was guilty of such mal practice toward hi3 family. If it had stopped right there, perhaps it would have ans ered; but it didn't. Itspread like a circle in the water,-till. in the end, Mrs. Jones herself heard it; nnd heard, of course, that the author of the S'.ory was the minister's own self. The next tiling to be done was for Mr. Jones and his family to leave Mr. Capers' church and go somewhere else. The clergyman was a good deil troubled about it, and his wife went over to see if she could discover the fause. Mrs. Jones received her with a good deal of coldness and seemed hard ly civil. Unable to endure it any long er, Mrs. Capers asked the aggrieved lady frankly w hat the trouble was. Mrs. Jones as frankly told her; that was well, for now the latter knew exactly what the matter was, and what it was necessary to do. Going home and imparting the intelli gence to her husband, he manifested quite as much astonishment as she. Ho sat and thought it over a little while, in order the better to collect hims. lf before taking a single step, and then started on direct for Mr. Jones himsei.'. He told Mr. Jones what he had heard, and declared the whole of it an untruth from beginning to end. Mr. Jones went on with all the minutest particu lars connected with the affair, and mak ing the most of the case in his power against tjie minister. Still the latter positively denied his guilt, and declared his determination to ferret out the au thor of so base a slander, if itvas with in human possibility. And he hurried back home nnd set about it. For some weeks it was a mystery still; he could get no clue to anything. It perplexed him beyond conception. Finally, his wife c:inie running down stairs one day, her face flushed and ex cited, and said to him in ber unsteady breath: "Mr. Caper3 have you noticed that knot-hole in your study floor?" " Why no," said he. "Where is it .r.id what of it?" "Just come up stairs and see." And up they went together. She pointed to the tell-tale spot, and re marked in a whisper: "I just caught Mrs. Jenkins with her ear to that very hole."' That was the first step toward the un ravelment of the mstrry. In a few days more the whole of it began to come out. He had sent his wife round to make a few innocent inquiries, and she had brought b ck just such intelligence as he expected and required. And put ting this thing and .that together, and reciillinf 5?rtain ideas that up to that time had passed out of his mind alto gether, he thought the matter was ex plained at last. So he went over to Mr. Jones once more. "Come," rfaid he, "if you will consent to go home with me for a short time, I think I can explain some things that have hitherto stood in the way of our friendship." Mr. Jones did not happen to love malice well enough to refuse, and ac cordingly took a walk with the minister over to his residence. The latter at nnce took him up into his study and shut the door. "In the first place,'' 3ai 1 he, "I sup pose you know that Mrs. Jenkins lives in the L." "Yes. 1 "Well, and you observe that knot hole?" "O, certainly." "And this is my study." "Yes." "And where my wife often takes the liberty to come and sit with me." Mr. Jones said he understood that. "Now, then," continued the clergy man, "1 am in tiie habit or frequently reading aloud lo her. And once upon time I happened to be reading from this very book, (picking up a volume of fiction from the table,) and here is something out of that same book that 1 am going to read to you." And he went on to read to Mr. Jones several paragraphs, in which oceured the fol lowing: "Mr. Jones got to abusing his family latt. He declared his w ife should not go out visiting, and threatened to shut her up if she dared disobey him. As for going to taese evening meetings, he declared he meant to put a stop to it; he had had enough of it. It did not tlo ber any sort of good, and made a great deal of trouble and expense for him. He should put an end to it at any and all hazard!" Mr. Jones burst o: t laughing. ''Is that all?" said he, his fac as red as the fell ins sun "That and the knot-hole," said Mr. Capers smiling good-naturedly. Mr. Jones offered him bis hand. From that moment they were friends again. He went back to church the next Sabbath as he should have done. But Mrs. Jenkins has never heard the last of it. A farmer in Coleraine, last Autumn, I ground soineapplesand froze the pumico solid, keeping it in that condition all winter. A few days ago he melted the pumice, squeezed out! the juice and ob tained new cider of a very superior flavor. Tired Mothers. A tittle elbow loins upon your knee.

One of the Fallacies. Of all the plausable fallicies which pass current in spite of repeated expos ures of their shallowness, there is no one which has got a firmer hold upon the public mind than that contained in the phrase, "It is alvays circulating money." Chide a "fast" man of your acquaintance for his xeckle s expend! tures, and he meets you with the tri umphant reply that he is doing infinite ly more good by spending than 1 y hoarding; he is a blessing to his race a public benefactor; he is doing all he can to circulate money. Half a dozen young epicures meet at a hotel or res taurant and order a dinner at "Jo or 510 a head; they guzzle or waste food and wine, the price of which would main tain an ordinary family for a month; this unenjoyed, uncnjoyable excess is not only not censurable, it is absolutely praiseworthy "for, dy'e see? it is al ways circulating money." Tho econo mists on the other hand, who husband their means are denounced without stint or measure. "They lock up mon ey and keep it from circulation. No body is the better for it not even them selves." The truth, on the contrary, is that tho savers of money are the chief benefactors of a country, for it is by them, more than by any other citizens, that not only its material, but its moral instinct! are advanced. Railroads telegraphs, schools, colleges, publij libraries, museums public works in which hosts of laborers are employed are only possible because of these sav ings. The accumulations of the sordid miser are as serviceable as the coin in the trader's till; for they are employed in bank business, 111 manufactures, in a thousand forms of hired capital, besides p 'ying a constant and ever increasing tax to the state. But money spent use lesslyas upon the turf, for costly wines or high-priced luxuries or mon ey spent for vanity, and not for enjoy ment is absolutely wasted. It maintains persons whose labor. that might have been useful to the com munity, is of no actual benefit, either to the spenders cr to mankind. When a dollar's worth of food is needlessly con sumed, the community is made just a dollar poorer. When a dollar is saved, and loaned, or employed, its power to bless the community has no limit iu time, foi all the great operations of con centrated labor, by which a country is made a desirable one to live in are the results of capital thus husbanded. Ciu cinnutii Ti udc List. Carpeting as A Test of Civilization. There are various theories regarding the test of a nation's relative degree ot civilization. Some tell us that it is to be measured by the amount of soap consumed, others would have, us be lieve that printer's ink is the substance that keeps even pace with culture. But, that the surest and fairest test is fur nished by the carpel consumption. Car pets are a luxury, and a fondness for them denotes habits of ease and com fort, and a mind contemplative and calm. Among European nations, Eng land is by far the most advanced in the universality of the carpet as an adjunct to the embellishment of a room. The annual consumption is estimated to be worth seven million dollars. The Car pet Review states that Philadelphia, which is the center of the American carpet manufacture, produces annually, twenty-two millions of yards worth fourteen million dollars. It also ven tures the assertion, that there is many a little American city of lOci.OtjO peoj.L that contains more e;ti';eted sp.iee, ih an whole counties in E: gland wiih a mil lion of inhabitants. Women of Shakespeare. Miss Adelaide Xeilson says of the women of Shakespeare: "It would take a volume to classify them. Eaeii and every one is -a different creation, and their diameters illustrate peculiar coin pari -ons of mind and force. In the character of Desdemona we see a pow erful illustration of conjugal devotion, and the strongest sympathy is excited for her sorrow ful fate. Iu ls;deiia's is displayed a higii-soulcd principle; in Juliet's, an enthusiastic love; in Con stance is seen the highest form of ma ternal agony; iu Margaret of Anjou, the sternest energies of our sex; in Kather- ine. the eoimileteiiess of resignation: in Rosalind, wit and romance; in Cleo- , nalrt.. the Iwtriimiiiir and eod of comtet- ry; in Imogen, an affection that is death ess; in Ophelia, the fate of a brok en hear and a in. ddened brain; in Cor delia's character we have the beautiful lesson of filiid obedience; in Miranda's, innocence; sweetness in that of Anne I'age, and a playful freedom in that of Jessiea. In all Shakespeare shows a true appreciation of female exeellence, ami he makes them talk and act like true women. T?,a and coffee dietary for children is as bad in its effecls as its use is now i universal. Dr. Feigi son found that j children so fed only gio.v four pounds per annum between the ages of thirteen and sixteen; w hile those who got milk ! night and morning fciew fifteen pounds each year. This needs no comment ry. The deteriorated jilnjtiine of tea-and-coiTee led children, as seen in their lessened power to resist disease, is no torious among the medical men of fac- tory districts. ' An Old Newspaper. There lias lately been discovered in the library of the University of Heidel berg, a copy of a newspaper which I proves to be the oldest periodical oi which there is now any certain knowl edge. It is a quarter volume bearing the date 1000, and is supposed to have been printed 1 y JohnCarolus,of Stntss burg. The paper was issued weekly each number consisting of two sheets. It was mainly occupied with letters from correspondents in adjoining states, which were contributed regularly. It is interesting to note that letters from Vienna were about eight days on the route, from Venice fourteen t seven teen days, and from Rome twenty-one days. When the matter contained in the letters, together with the news re tailed at second-hand, failed to fill the sheet, the remaining space was left blank. intelligence of every sort found a place in the journal. Among the most interesting occurrences noted was the manufacture of the telescope by Gal ileo. The correspondent from Flor ence writes, on S'-plember 4, to the ef fect "that the government cf Ar nice made a coiisideiable present to Signor Galileo, of Florenca, Professor of Math ematics at Padua, and increased his an nual stirent by ICO crowns, because with diligent study he found out a rule and measure by which it is possible to see places thirty miles distant as if they were near, aud on the o.her hand near objects to appear much larger than they are before our eyes." The news received from Prague af ford a disturbed picture of plunder and murder in the slreets of the city. It appears that . t this period men and women were daily seized by bandits, robbed, strangled, and thrown into the Mohian. Seven bodies were taken from the water in one day; Tind at another time seven malefactors were apprehended, who confessed "that on the ISth of this month, they threwabout fourteen persons into the water, and that their band numbered SO. who were, for tho most part, natives of Prague.' The Grandpa. The grandpa is an individual, aged somewhere between fifty and one hun dred years, and is a common occur an ce in most well-regulated families. They ar the standard authority on all leading subjects, and what they dont know about things that happened sixty-five years ago, or what will hap pen for the next three years to cecne, is a damage for every bdy to know. Grandpas are not entirely useless; they are handy to hold babies and feed pigs, and are very smart at mending broken broom handles, or putting up lhe-clotb.es lino on Trashing ttnys. I have seen grandpas that churn good. but I consider it a mighty mean trick to set an old man over eighty years to churning butter. I am willing to rock the baby while women folks are boiling soap; I am ready to cut rags to work into rag car pets; they can keep me hunting hen's eggs or picking green currants; or I will even dip candles or core apples for sauce but I won't churn. 1 have examined myself on tho sub ject, and will bet a jack-knife that Josh Billings won't churn. Grandpas are poor help at bringing up children; they are full of precept and catechism, but the young ones all seem to understand that grandpa minds them a heap more than they mind grandpa. Josh Billings. Learn the Value of Money. A silver dollar repre e-nts the day's woik of the laborer. It is given to a boy; he has no idea of what it has cost or of what it is worth. He would be as likely to give a dollar as a dime for a top or any other toy. But if the boy has learned to earn the dimes and dol lars by the sweat of his face he knows the difference. Hard work is to him a measure of values that can never be rubbed out of his mind. Let him lean? by experience that a hundred dollars represents a hundred weary days of labor, and it seems a great sum of money; a thousand dollars is a fortune and $10,000 is almost inconceivable, for it is far more than he ever expects to possess. AVhen he has earned a dollat he think twice before he spends it. He wants to invest it so as to get the full va'ue of a day's work for it. It is a great wrong to society and to a boy to bring bim up to man's estate without this knowledge. A fortune at twenty one without it is almost inevitably thrown away. llh it and a little cap ital to start on, he will make his own n tune better than any one can makf t for him. Preventing Suffocation by Smoke. I will give some suggestions for the prevention of suffocation by smoke. A pillow case, well saturated with water, and having a small hole torn in it to look through, placed loosely over the head, will be found an admirable im promptu respirator in the densest smoke. I am indebted for the idea to Vice Ad miral Jerningham, who told me how, when he commanded the Cambridge training ship at Plymouth, he made hlE tirst experiment with this pillow case respirator. He had li lbs. ot loose powder exploded iu a confined part of the ship, which, although screened off with fear nought, emitted so dense a smoke that those outside had to lie down on the deck. A common pillow case, with a small eve hole, was placed ove the head of a man, who, with the hose iu the hand, went inside aud reniaintd ten minutes, when, toassuie his friends outside of his safety, he sang a coink song. C'it. Tjomhm Times. Preventing Suffocation by Smoke. Self-Respect. Always remember no one en debase you tat yourself. Slander, satire, false hood, injustice these can never rob you of your manhood. Men may lie about you. they may denounce you, Uiey may cherish suspicious manifold, they may make your failings the target ot their wit or cruelty; never be alarmed; never swerve an inch from the line your judgment and conscience have marked out for you. They cannot, by all their efforts, iakeauay your knowl edge of "Oiirself, the purity of yoiu motives, the integrity of your character an 1 the generosity of your uature. While these aie left, you are, ir. point of fact, Life. unharmed. Hints for Ihiilj Death in Life. The other day I heard a cabinet min ister talking to a young chap that wanted a place. "My young friend," said he, "don't apply. Saw wood, drive cows, anything honorable, but preserve your independence. I have a man in my department who has beeu in forty years." "Forty 3'ears?" "Yes, every day of it. He came in in 1S36. Well, he gets about Uie same salary he had to commence with. The other day he came to me, saying: 'I ought to have died forty yars ago.' '1'ou don't mean that,' I said. 'Yes,' said he, 'I mean that I have been buried in this building forty years, and I had just as well been buried In the grave. What's the difference between tombs? Of what advantage have I been to my Belf in here? I had nothing when I came in, and have got nothing now. I am disqualified for anything. If I was turned out to-day I would starve to morrow.' So much for a government position that young men are so anxious to get. They had better let it alone. C'iitrinnati Commcicial. How wise and sngaclous the cow3 be come that run upon the street or pick their living along the highway. The mystery of gates and bars is at last solved to them. They ponder ovei them by night, they lurk about them by day, till they know when they are open and unguarded. They calculate on the chances of the gate being left open a certain number of times in the season, and if it be but once, an 1 only for five minutes, your cabbage and sweet corn suffer. Yes. life presorts but one absorbing problem to the street cow, and that is how to get into your garden. She catches glimpses of it over the fence or through the pickets, and her imagination or epigas trium is inflamed. At 1 st she learns to open the gate. It is a great triumph of bovine wit. She does it with her horn or her nose, or it may be with her ever ready tongue. I doubt if she has yet penetrated the mystery of the newer patent fastenings; but the old patent latch she can see through, give her time enough. Burroughs. What a ceremonious affair we make of entertaining company! Too many of us lose all sense of being at home the moment a stranger crosses our threshold; and he instantly feels him self to be a mere visitor nothing more and acts accordingly. The man who knows how to ' drop in " of an evening, draw up his chair to your hearth as if it were his own, and lab into the usual evening routine of the household as if he were a member of it how welcome he alwas is! The man who comes to stay under your roof for a season, and who, without being intrusive or famil iar, makes you feel that he is at home with you, and is content in his usual fashion of occupation how delightful a guest he is! And tho houses -ah. how few of them' into which one can go for a day or a week and feel sure that the family routine is in no wise altered, the family comfort in nowise lessened, but, on the contrary, increased by one's presence what joy it is to cross their thresholds! What harbors of refuge they are to weary wanderers! What sweet reminiscences they bring to the lonely and homeless! The education of Queen Victoria's grandchildren is conducted on the prin ciple that the Prince Consort introduced into the family. Particularly is this true of the Crown Princess of Germany. They have to rise early and retire early. During the day they have punctually to perform their duties and to keep strictly the time al otted to the various branches of study and recreation. They breakfast at eight with their parents, nnd the time between ten in the morn ing and five n the afternoon is devoted to their lessons, with an interruption of an hour for dinner. Accomplish ments, such as riding, dancing and skating, receive the same attention as art and se'enee. Their meals consist of simple dishes of which they have their choice, without being permitted to ask for a substitute, if what is p aced before them does not suit. Between meals they are not allowed to eat. Only in expensive toys are placed in their hands, nd the princesses dress theinselve without the aid of chambermaids In the great valley between the north and South mountains in Pennsylvania commonly called the Eastern Ridge, a well was dug some years sines in Frank lin, and another in Cunfberiand coun ty, thirty or forty miles from the for mer, which led to a discovery affording a subject for interesting speculation. Af.er proceeding in each instance to a depth of about thirty-six feet, the bot tom of these wells gave way (but for tunately when the workmen had retired) and a torrent of water rushed up. A lead was sunk with fifty fathoms of line without finding the least obstruction. They remain at this time untouched and of unknown depth. The presump tion is, there is a subterranean lake in that quarter, and how far it extends under the base of the vast primitive mountains, situated between the Sus quehanna and Pittsburgh, will -never be ascertained, unless by some terrible convulsion of nature they should be precipitated in the tremendous abyss. Mr. W. Y. Harris s;ild in a recent address at the Massachusetts State Normal School: "It is in education as in other departments of the business of civil society. In the long run, skill, preparation and brains will tell. The professional teacher will, after awhile, iurnish the only standard, and the make shift teacher will be valued and renu inerated like the make-shift shoemaker jr mechanic, lawyer or doctor. Aud here it is well to say, perhaps, that the educational lal-orers have this matter all in their own hands.

Arrival of American Exhibitors at Harve—The First Man on the Ground—How our Agricultural Show will look—A Chat with Mr. We Kai, of Yedda, Japan—England and Russia at the Exhibition—Warning to American Exhibitors. Hotel du Lovvke, Paris, " April 31, 1878. As probably some of my readers w ill vis it Parts this summer, I shall commence thw letter by warning them against making ar rangements for board or apartmenta too far advance. Within the last fortnighLow- ing to tlie sudden influx of foreigners, which was checked by the cold, snowy, disagreea ble weather that eet in last week, landlords have raised their prices in anticipation of a big rush ; but I am of opinion that, while the Exhibkion will be a grand success in every respect, the visitors from abroad will neither, owing to hard times, be as plentiful as expected, nor so reckless in their expen ditures. It cosU as much now to live in Paris, as in New York, Philadelphia, Bos ton or any of our large cities; but after the opening of the Exhibition, it is more than probable that living will be reduced, as many landlords will have many empty rooms upon their hands, on account of their present extravagant demands. An Ameri can, a stranger in Paris, should, before mak ing permanent arrangements, consult some of his more experienced countrymen, whose chief resorts are "the New York "Herald" Bureau, in the Avenue de 1' Opera, the pub lication office of the "American Advertiser," No. 5, Rue Scribe, and the offices of the U. S. Commissioners at the Exposition Grounds. Of course here, as elsewhere, he must look out for "black sheep," and u;e due discretion as to whom he confides in; but not to any greater extent than in the ordinary transactions of every-day life at home. The first two American vessels which left the United Stales with articles for the Exhibition, the "Supply" and the "Consti tution,"' have arrived at Havre, safe and sound, and their cargoes are expected to ar rive here in a few days. The first Ameri can on the grounds with his exhibit was a starch manufacturer (I could not learn his name), who had shipped his complete ex hibit at his own expense by the French line steamers ; and he wac followed by Messrs. Mallory, Wheeler & Co, of New Haven, Conn., who have their fine exhibit of hard ware, locks &c, almost complete. The floor in the United States Division is al ready marked out and numbered, and ev erything is in readiness for the reception and arrangement of exhibits; and when I visited the grounds vesterday, thev were just completing the brick and concrete foun dation ior the steam eiiL-ine, which is to furnish the motive power in the American section. One of the finest exhibits will be that from the Agricultural Department in Washington, to which I referred briefly in my last letter, and the preparations for which are now being made. In the mid dle of the Agricultural Gallery there has been a space marked out, 75 feet square, in the middle of which is the figure of a five pointed star, at each of the points of which will be erected a five-sided or pentagonal column, surmounted by au ornamental um. In the center of the star will be a pyra mid or terrace, made of glass, surmounted an eagle ; and within the glass ca.'e will exhibited choice specimens of the Agricul tural productsof the United States. Reach ing from the center to the five columns, which mark the points of the star, will te glass show cases placed on counters and fill like the central cxe with specimens of rain, cotton, tobacco, &c., and in the urns top of the columns will be specimens of growing plants, such as corn, tobacco, cot ton, rice, Ac. Altogether it will be a most tasteful exhibit, and will compare favora bly with anything in that line from any other nation. A few days ago, whom should I meet in Champ dc Mars but my old friend, Mr. Wa Kai, from Yeddo, Japan, whose acquaintance 1 first had the pleas ure of making at Vienna in 1S73, and to renew at our Centennial Exhibition in iladelphia, where he represented the C'oshio Gaishia Company (I believe that is way he spells it), one of the largest manufactories of China and lacquered ware Japan. lie is preparing a magnificent here, which will snrpass in costli ness and grandeur anything the company shown at previous Exhibitions, but among which Americans will recognize the enormous vases which were the vein's rmltnnee of the Japanese exhibit at our Centennial. Mr. Wa Kai and vottr corres pondent had quite a walk ti gether across bridge, and into the grounds on the other side of the Seine, where workman are busily engaged in the construction of grottoes, miniature cascades, the la; itig cut hedJ, placing statues, and planting of trees, shrubs and Bowers. These grounds, while not so extensive as those at Phila delphia, will surpass them in beauty, ar.d ill be provided wilh cafes, rnnjixlries, and restaurants innumerable, which will be tin the immediate supervision of the French Commissioners. A.s usual, England is ahead in point of completeness and forwardness of he rcxhibit, next comes Russia, whose exhibit is on a gigantic and magnificent scale, surpassing volume more than ten times what she to Philadelphia. The war cloud inter vening between these two nations does not sjem, in the lca-- t, tow darken theiiTriendly rivalry at the Exhibith n. We are more behind-hand than any other nation, but a weeks of hard work, now whe l mesi of exhibits have arrived safely at Havre, soon bring us round, and it is to l e hoped that we will have everything i.i read iness to make at least a respectable show the 1st ol .May, when the r.xhiumon oens.

LOUIS. We are told that there'is in Algeria a real river of ink. It is formed by the union of two branches, one of which flows through a district abounding in sulphate of iron, while the other drain a swamp in which the waters become strongly impregnated with tannic acid and similar vegetable substances. Of course the union of the two streams produces ink, as would naturally result from the addition of copperas to a so lution of nutgalls. Whether the ink is of good quality and ready for bottling nnd sendiug to market we are not ia- tormed. o- A good story is told by Mr. Chanes Ma ray, of Mr. Seward, who, when in Eng and went with him to the Crystal Palace. Mr. Seward lighted a cigar and proceed ed to smoke with great enjoyment, when a policeman meeting the pair said, in a tone of authority, "Sir, its against the rules to smoke in these grounds, rut out your cigar or leave the place. "Sir," Mr. Seward rejoined with equal dig nity, "It is against the rules for me to give you half a cr wr.. Take It, and put it in your pocket and leave my pres ence." The man looked round for fear of listners, took the half crown, smiled pleasantly, and discretly turned away in the opposite direction. Soon after the Copernican system ot astronomy began to be generally under stood, an old fanner went to the par son with the following inquiry: "Dr. T., do you believe in the new story they tell about the earth moving around the sun?" "Yes, certainly.' 'Do you think it is according to the scriptures? If it's true, how could Josh"a command the sun to stand still? "Umph'." quo'h the parson; "Joshua commanded the 3un to s'.-nid still, did he?" "Well, It stood still, did it not?" "Yes." well. Did you ever Lr.r that he set it 8-goisg r.gain?" "Children and fools speak the truth." An unfortunate widower has found that this is true. Preparing, not long since for a ride with a young lady and desiring to blind the eyes of his house keeper respecting his errand, he very politely informed his little son that he could go too. "Xo, I guess not," re plied the little man in roundabouts. 'Why, yes, wash your face and come along," persisted the father. "Shan't do it," replied the urchin. "Why didn't you go?" quest ioued the lady in charge after the father had left, "he wished it, I think." "Didn't either," retorted the boy, "heaid in the bedroom he'd give tne ten cents if I'd stay at home." Young Folk's Corner. Hatlie G. Taylor, Hillshoro, and "J. T.
