Vig enough for ycuV Ctin vou ciraw a free' manly breath 'neath the lowly arch that oppresses you o'eriietd? Are you content to exiot forever within ihe puny circle defined for you by an ar bitrary and imperfect system of as tronomy? Sink through the earth. You can not: the antipodes are beneath the surface, and you are stopped breast high. Soar aloft You dare not, lest you derange the solar system. Alas! how can you escape? DIAGONALLY. It was a dark, cheerless winter morning. Snow was on the ground, boar-frost on the window-panes. I was awakened by a dull, ominous presage of something pressing on uay congested brain. My hip bath stared me in the face. I shuddered but it must be done. I crept out ot bed, and paused irresolute. It was bitterly, cold! The presage was still there. Suddenly I rushed to the fire-place, snatched up the mas sive poker, flew back to the bath, and, with one mighty blow, dashed the solid ice into a million of frag ments. Then then ( oh. reader ! ) I plunged in. The majesty of the shock obliter ated consciousness. For the tril lionth of a second I was dead dead to all save the presage which low ered upon the troubled bosom of my oblivion in a manner peculiar to such visitations. Inen mercy! I was violently dismembered, and fraction ally impelled, with a frightful veloc ity, along a rigid diagonal line, stretched from the uttermost confines of conception to to (be still my panting soul ! ) to I, a I of of in G L'BMUII ! I found myself on a low mossy bank, looking helplessly upon my fragments, lly head, body legs and arms were lying around in' pictur esque confusion. Still, strange to say, I felt no pain. The presage was gone, and a peaceful, uninquiring calm had settled on my head. Nor did my other portions manifest any inconvenience. I was but mortal, however: and, after wc had remained like this for a few minutes, my brain began to ex perience monotony, and conceived an earnest desire for a new excite ment. ' On that instant we all flew into space ! I mysteriously understood from this that I ought to wish the other way. I did so, and presto we all flew together again ! I was an in tergal man once more. 1 rose, shook myself, spoke a few words aloud (to guard against dreams), and took a long, discrimin ating look around mc. I was in a beautiful meadow, with all the poetical appurtances, and a broad, shining river running past me into the illimitable perspective. There were several little points about tnis landscape WHICH STEUCK ME AS PECULIAR. I noticed that the trees grew with their roots in the air, and their foli age (if there was any) underground. There was an immense variety of charming flowers imbedded in the ground, with their closely ramified stalks sticking out. The river ran five feet above its banks; so thul when I stood by its edge, the water was as high as my neck; and by stooping a little I could see the fish swimming about; still it did not ov erflow. I say, these things struck me as being rather odd at first; but it is Astonishing how quickly one gets used to remarkable sights ! I walked about the meadow for some time, and amused myself with digging up the various sorts of fruit which I , saw peeping out of the ground. The apples were especial ly juicj-. - Now, I was always fond of this fruit; and, with such abundance as I saw around, I could not help in dulging rather freely. I had eaten live iarge, red, luscious fellows, and was half-way through the sixth, to ed an is He it to a when suddenly .1 experienced a very remarkable feeling. I felt getting lighter! There was no doubt about it; a pleasant, mild exhilaration was soon followed by an actual physical loss of weight. I could hardly pnt my feet on the ground as I walked laiong; 1 stamped as heavily as I could, but no mark was left cn the grass; and in a few minutes more, just as I completed my sixth apple. 1 positively FLEW INTO THE AIP.! w ith a velocity to which that of lightning is trivial and uninterest ing, I shot upward with an ever in creasing impetus. Beina: totally un used to such things, I shrieked with terror: the immediate effect of which was to materially increase my speed. Then, like magic, all my tears vanished, and I felt a marvel ous sensation of dreamy pleasure floating o'er my soul. I laughed aloud, and eagerly strove to go fa3t er. A huge net was at once thrown over me and I was dragged violently to tne ground. Oh! the impotence of human wishes in this marvelous place! After an interval of oblivion, I re covered my senses, wriggled out o tne net, ana sat up. JtJending over me was a man scowling furiously, with his arm uplifted as if thirsting for my life. And yet, strange to relate, I felt no alarm. I smiled pleasantly, and made some unim portant remark about the weather. He fled as though death had be after him, and I was once more alone. I then found that a couple of enor mous weights had been tied to my ankles, and I could not get up. So sat still. Presently a whole army of men ap proched, headed by him I . had first seen. I hey were all smiling; most affably, and seemed perfectly de lighted to see me. All at once the leader drew a sort of horse-pistol from his belt, and pointed it straight at my head. I was in a great fright; bet, thmknng to intimidate him, put on a fearful frown and shook my head fiercely. Back went the pistol to its belt, and the mob re turned my scowl with interest. 1 was on the point of giving myself up for lost, when, by a peculiar sort of intuition, for which I need hardly account, I comprehended that in this wonderful country FROWNS MEANT FRIENDSHIP, AND SMILES SLAUGHTER. So I continued to look furious; and presently one oi tnem nandeu me bowl of something remarkably like milk. I took it; and strange to say, it didn't disagree with' the appies. warned oy previous ex perience, I continued to frown hor ribly; and, in less time than it takes to tell it, I was comfortably housed in the residence of the Chief Magis trate. The first thing I had to do was to learn the language. In a short narrative of this de scnption it is unnecessary for me to state minutely how I did it; nor can without tiring the reader, go into discussion as to its origin, etymol ogy, etc. ; although these are ex cecdingly curious, and interested me much at the time. Therefore, when represent any one as saying any thing, in this history, it must be dis tinctly understood that I have trans lated it from pure Gubmuhhese. During my stay at the house of the lhiet Magistrate of Gubmuh, I had abundant opportunities of con templating the manners and customs the people. My host was an agree able, well-educated man, whose lib eral and enlightened mind prompted him not to trouble himself about my antecedents; and he took my sudden appearance in the realms of Gubmuh as an every day affair, re quiring neither comment or explan ation. This saved me a vast amount troublesome cross-examination, which would have been as tedious to read as to relate. I found that he was what we should call a philoso pher; and spent all hi3 spare time trying to "account for" things. He was well versed in the history of Gubmuh, which is handed down by tradition from father to son, and presents many features of interest Unlike the history of other coun tries, it contains not a single battle. The successive kings came to the throne without any of those inde cent struggle to be found in our his tory; aud universal peace has reign ed ever since the first woman ; for the Gubmuhghcse affirm that Adam wa3 an afterthought. My host was also learned in phys ical science! and told me that the reason why everybody wore weights around their ankles was that the center of gravity of Gubmuh was situate a couple of million miles above the earth; and, taking me into the back yard, he kindly showed it me. It was a small black ball in the center ot the heavens, in the ex act place that ( with us) the sun oc cupies at noefn. By-the-by, there is sun at Gubmuh, the place being lighted on a highly ingenuous prin ciple, hitherto undiscovered. The center of gravity thu3 being outside of the earth, my host assur me it was easy to see why every thing grew topsyturvy in Gubmuh; and, for further information on this interesting subject, I would refer the reader to the Edinburg Encyclope dia, Letter G, Art Gravity. The Government of Gubmuh is absolute monarchy, and the king therefore not allowed to marry. ha3 unlimited authority over the whole population and never abuses la fact, the politics of Gubmuh may be studied with great advant age. It is a curious fact, which may, perhaps, be accounted for by the pe culiar position of the center of grav ity that, in Gubmuh, everybody says "yes" when he says "no," and vice versa. They look angry when they are pleased, and smile sweetly when in a passion. This rather con fused me at first, but I soon got ac customed to it; and, being anxious be thought as affable as possible during my stay, I contracted a steady scowl which defies obliteration, and has done me incalculable injury since my return. j One of the most striking peculiar ities of Gubmuh is, that nobody has name there. No one is called any thing whatever; which saves an ex- tradinary amount of trouble in the long run. If they wih to allude to any one, they approach him and touch him gently on the shoulder; if! ne is not present at the time, they cheerfully postpone their remarks, which, after all, is a very rational way of doing ihings. I cannot help wishing but no matter; I am in other climes just now. 1 must not forget to speak of their system oi marriage, me women are, without a single exception, beau tiful: the men remarkably hideous. As with us, the women are considered minutely Inferior to the men, and therefore hold the place of honor amongst them. They enjoy every luxury that the cheerful selfsacrifice of the men can afford; they are treated with the most tender respect anrt their slightest wish is consulted, and, when practicable,promptlygrat- ltied. Ihe men work that the wo men may live at ease; and regard their toil but as precious means of gaining one feminine smne; the men devotedly love the women gracious ly auow it; sna yet there are no woman's rights in Gubmuh. When you love a fair Gubmuhghee you are supposed to love all the family for her sake; therefore, you must MARRY THE HOUSE, as it is called, and this includes any one who happens to be inside on the wedding morning. I cannot help thinking that the Mormons must have got some of their ideas from Gubmuh. After I had been some little time a guest of the Chief Magistrate, I had an opportunity of seeing some of the laws of Gubmuh. I was thrown into prison for some triflng offense (I forget what it was, now) and shortly afterward brought up for trial. I was much struck by the appearance of the court. The Judge, instead of being elevated above the counsel, audience, and witnesses, as in this country, sat in a sort of a well, in the middle of the floor, and put his head up through a trap door when he want ed to say anything. The counsel wore tights, and had their heads shaved; and, indeed, the practical sense of this arrangement cannot be too highly commended, for a varie ty of reasons which would be out of place here. The jury consisted of two hundred householders; and the verdict of the minority was conclusive. The calm and impartial spirit which seemed to animate the whole proceedings was a lesson to every age and coun try.

Overpowered by the usual feeling, she slapped my face, pulled my hair, and bit a piece out of my finger. A of in JOY! IT WAS MUTUAL! I led her to a convenient arbor close by, and we sat down.

Trial of the New Gatling. Quito a large number of gentlemen and ladies were attracted to the Ex position grounds last evening to wit ness the trial of one of the new Gat ling guns.

The size used was that which shoots the reg ulation size musket bullet, and was handled directly by Mr. Otis Frink and Dr. Gatling. A singular coin cidence was noticed by several of the spectators, inasmuch as the two gen tlemen named were the sane ones who handled the first of these guns exhibited in public, which was just twelve years ago, at the corner of Georgia and Pennsylvania streets.in thi3 city. Since that, however, the gun has been continually improved upon, as has been recorded the world over, until it now ranks about the best in use. The first firing was of ooe hundred and twenty rounds, or three cases of cartridges. Seventy of this number went through the marked out target of a foot in diameter, and the remainder passed through the boards, avera ging fifteen inches from the mark. The bullets were considerably flat tened, but tore np the dirt back of the target, until the earth looked as though just harrowed. The second and third rounds were of 160 shots each. At the close 61 the second and third rounds the marked target was completely shot away and the neighboring planks badly riddled. The fourth round was for a trial of speed. Five cases of two cartridges were used, and fired in twenty-five seconds. It required but little im agination to conceive a continued roar as though of musketry, one's ears fairly ringing with sound. The gun remains berfectly steady during shooting, and docs not heat up the least, although the muzzle seemed to be shooting out a contin ual stream of fire while the crank was being turned. It requires but a moment's time to place a full case of cartridges over the gun in their re quired position, and thereby but lit tle time is lost, so little, in fact, that i3 not noticeable. General Love said that the target should be above 1,200 yards away to give a full range. Indianapolis Sentinel, July 31.
