NEW ANECDOTES OF LINCOLN. Mr. Noah Biwks, in his r.rticle, "Pcr iionul Kemiiiisceiuts of Lincoln," in Sribner't Mouikly ftr February, contrib utes lumh plea-sant posnip of a personal nature as to the home and office life of Mr. Lincoln, and adds peveral new anec dotes to the lar;re stock already in the hands of the public Mr. Brooks knew Lincoln in lN"(i, and followed him through the political campaign of that year. lie went to Washinzton in 18i2. nnd.renewed the old ncquaintance. Vp to the day of the I'resident'K death Mr. Lrooks hitd the privilcj:e of his intimate acquaintance, and, he talks as the inti mate friend of the most momentous pe riod in the President's life. Ppeaki;?; of the rare which Mr. Lin coln bestowed upon his messages and letters, Mr. Brooks says the same care was given to his em-eches. He seemed afraid of being betrayed into using un di;Tniiit d expressions when called out without d'.ie preparation. In the follow ing anecdote Mr. Lincoln states his own rase and makes it clear : Once, beinjr no! ificd that lie was to be serenaded, jtt after some notable mili tary or jiolitii al event, he asked me to come to dinner, 'so as to he on hand and see the fun afterward," as lie said, lie excused himself as toon as we had dined, and, while the bands were playing, the crowds cheering, and the rockets burst ing outside the house, he made his reajv nearance in the narlor with a roll of manuscript in his hand. Perhaps notic ing a look ol s:rrtinse on rnv lace lie said : 'I know what you are thinking about. You think it mighty queer that an old stunip-Fpeaker like myself should not be able to address a crowd like this outside without a written speech, .but you must remember I am, in a certain way, talking to the country, and I have to be very ooroful l-if limn T ninirt :n off-hand sneech. in ansAvertoa serenade, !

Subsequent ly T l.nmnl tlvit. it. w:is Senator Sumner who had civen voice to tiie coinlaint of the "nice'Boston folks," aud with consid erable emphasis.

Ihe immense concourse in front of the house was illu minated bv fire-works. The air was rent with the noUe of cheering music, and the uvai ver exploding rockets and bombs. Just as we went up stairs, an unusual yell, min gled with laughter and cheers, causer? tiie I'resulent to pause ana as it wtiai uiai n,tl,f lu, T ittln T-irl 1 hen nbont, eleven years old, delirous with excitement, had seized a captured rebel flag which had been civen him, and leaning as far out of the window as possible, was waving t, with miidit and main, to the wonder and delight of the crowd beneath. At that moment old Edward, the faithful door-keepo, in great consternation, seiz- l.a 1...1 l,,. tl.a emidfr nnrtion of his cu ..-j-.- , small trousers and plucked him from the window sill.

As he read, he dropped his slips of manuscript on the floor, and lad, scur rying about, gathered tnem up as xney drilled awav, h!;e l ig uuttertues, irom the President's hand.

Lincoln particularly liked a joke at expense of the dignity of some high or military ollicitu. one aay, noi before his second inauguration, he asked me if 1 had heard about Stanton's meet ing a picket on Broad river, South Caro lina, and then told this story: "General Foster, then at Port Royal, escorted Secretary up ihe river, taking a quarter uiastwr'b tug. Reaching the outer on the river, a picket roared from bank, 'What have you got on board tug?: The severe and dignified answer was, 'The Secretary of War and Major General Foster.' "instantly the picket roared back, 'We've got Major-Generals enough up here why don't you bring us up some hard-tack ?"' The story tickled Lincoln mightily, and he told .l.'.il it was replaced by a new o:.o. snd Ae Uiils .oro of cts Icrara.

Watching the Boiling Dumplings. a a so n the P Svlvestre's Nicht in Hungary is one of the "most romantic moments of the vear. All sorts of superstitious oeneit, are attached to this night.

Asa civilized saint, whose prestige 'has outlived that of a great number of his brethren, St. Sylvestre gives his attention first of all to the saloons that is, to those who should fill them, but who on this nigiit nrefpr to follow the VOUllg people to the kitchen, where the young ladies are oc- copied with ine manuiaciiuc ui uu mr lings.

" Plunket . ex pressed his willingness to go on if tne jury would "set." 'S:t, sir, sit," said the presiding. Judge, "not 'set ;' hens set." "I thank you, my Lord," said Plunket. The case proceeded, and presently the Judge had occasion to observe that if that were the case he feared the action would not "lav." "Lie, my lord, lie," exclaimed the bar rister, "not lav ; hens lay." "If vou don't stop wur coughing, sir, said a'hastv and irritable Judge, "I'll fine vou a hundred pounds."

"This may be, Mr. Curran," sneered the Judge; "but I suspect your law li brary is rather limited."

Death Rate in Various Occupations. Nobody doubts that the occupation of an individual has much to do with his general health, and with his chances of death. Statistics prove that the death rate is lowest among scientists and pro fessional men not physicians; then fol low Protestant clergymen, engineers, farmers and laixirers; next carpenters, machinists, and workers in iron ; then come schoolmasters, tobacconists, physi cians, and finally the clergy of tiie Ro man Catholic church, among whom the mortality is much greater than among the Protestant clergy and the other pro fessions named. Next we have druggists and butchers, then miners and glass manufacturers, plumbers and copper smiths, railway employes and dock la borers, and last of all carmen, cabmen, horsekeepers, and inn-keepers, among .Unm 4,p mni-tnlitv i PTPtltPSt. ailll much more than double that of the first mentioned occupation. - Tl.n rlr,.l,,r.4lnn ll-Illl'll TTinV llP dfUWU from these facts are very instructive and nrticticallv useful: thev prove that the n,,!nl ni,n.,lla rif C inrw-p ton.! tn nroloii! lilt; v tjui.-'iuw .-t iv,.ttw j- - - - life as well aa outdoor labor, provided is not on railways or among shipping nvi.,,n . !,, n" -firlr in irnn is more livi , tiitiii i - wholesome than to work in lead or cop .... . .. -....1 t 1 41. n r,.., per, as might ne expected, one me vuii Rno.i l.ii.n nfn Ki-bnolin.'.sferis as ininri nna na theVatn of celibacy of the Ro r'.,ti,,,i;o nnesf us; v. the inn lli.lll llllltVl.V. ...j-, j j - keepers, being most exposed to the tempi..it.n nf infon-iTipr-inrp hnvft the least LillltlH til i.ii,",v. ,i i .h.ince for along life, as well as those with whom they "habitually keep con pany.

For instance, according to the Cincinnati Commercial, "the London Standard say3 that Butler is one of the large number of utterly unscrupulous politkans, to be found in every country, wao are willing to join any numerous faction that will accept their leadership, and so doing give them a power they can use, notoriety that gratifies their vanity, and an influence which, in a last re sort, they can always sell." So it will bo seen that Ben is known almost as well in England as in this country. The Democrats have got cut for a campaign document such portions of Anderson's testimony, and extracts from such witnesses as suit their purposes, without any of the denials of other w itnesses or contradictions of themselves. The character of the witnesses and the commission itself is so well established that the docu ment is a waste of printing and money to any body whj will not be lieve the moon is made of green cheese if a party leader tells him so. The Recent Gerrymander of Ohio by the O'Connor legislature has at- rooted attention to the action tho nnrtv in other States. In Ken- r j tucky, for example, there are 150, HSO democratic voters and and 07, 13C republican. Tho Republicans, on this showing, are entitled to one third of the congressional delega tion, while the fact is the State has solid Democratic delegation. re the be- the trie out, they in but price them Tho Republicans of the fourti Alabama district have amicably set tled tho differences that divided them two years ago and hive united in tho choice of a candidate for Con - .... i T- t 1 cress.

In tho last session of Congress SeD.ate passed a bill miking green backs receivable at par for four cent.bonds,and receivable for customs duties after the first of October. The bill was defeated ia the House by tho Democrats under the leader ship of Gen. Tom Swing. The was to keep the greenback ques tion open for partisan purposes. One of the greatest needs of country at the present time is a thor ough appreciation of tho intense hunger of the so'id South, aud immenso magnitude of Southern war claims, already made and to bo mado on the United States Treasury.

A veteran of two wars, broken down in the service of his country, old and poor, went to Washington last winter and applied to the House of Representatives for the position of doorkeeper'. He had fought gal lantly in Mexico, and stood by the flag bravely through the war of tho Rebellion. He had been a life-long Democrat and a leader in Lis party, for many years. The Republicans of the House sup posed him to a man, but the Demo cratic majority cast their vote against him. and elected a re Oel Genera; to the position instead of "old Jimmy Shi ?lds," the Irish hero. Henry L. Dickey voted with his par'y: The Boston Transcript th-J3 sets forth what would be the effect of tax;r.g government bonds: No nation taxes its bonds. By exe npting bonds from taxation the United States makes money, because it gains in interest saved more than it Ceould possibly in taxes. Again, wer9 the bonds taxed, not only would it b9 necessary to pay more interest, but the bonds would bo worth more out of the country than in it, and would go abroad, where the interest would have to follow them, but where tho tax-gatherer woi ld be powerless. Another view is that taxing the bonds issued by the government world be taxing its virn debts a thing that the taxing power ha3 nev er attempted. Thousands of Democrats will quie tly vote for Republican Congress men this fall, and they will do so be cause, whatever else they may think of the Republican party, they know it cm be trusted to pursue a safe and conservative financial policy, the one thjng now needed to bring about a"restoration of the industrial and commercial prosperity of the country. St. Taul Pioneer-Press (Inl.) An Irishman among a crowd cf his fellow-countrymen at a railroad depot in this district, few days since, was discussing the candidates for Congress. He'd be "domned," he said, "if he'd vote for Dickey, nor for any man that voted against old Jamie Shields" for doorkeeper, last winter. And so they all said. There are thousands of Southern ers who believe that the South will in time bo reimbursed for the loss of its slaves. The South Carolina Democrats, in order to cajole the colored people to vote the Democrat ic ticket, are promising to give them a share of the money when it BhaJi be obtained. of Another Democratic odcer is m trouble.
