When the tu,v&, growing clearer, ik-es Gxl no nearer ; When the soul, mounting higher, To God comes no nigher, But the aichfiend Pride Mounts at her side, Foiling her high emprise Sealing her eagle eyes, And, when sJie fain would soar, Makes idols to adore ; Changing the pure emotion Of her high devotion To a siin-d.)ep sense Of her own eloquence ; Strong to deceive, strong to enslave Save, oh, 6ave ! From the ingrain'd fashion Of this earthly nature That mars thy creature; From grief that is but passion, From mirth that is but feigning, From tears that bring no healing; From wild and weak complaining; Thine old strength revealing, Save, oh, save 1 From doubt, where all is double, Where wise men are not strong; Where comfort turns to trouble; Where just men suffer wrong, Where sorrow treads on joy; Where sweet things soonest cloy; Whore faiths are built on dust.J Where love is half mistrust, Hungry and barren, and sharp as the sea, Oh, set us free ! O let the false dream fly Where our sick souls do lie, Tossing continually ! O where thy voice doth come Let all doubts be dumb; Let all words be mild, All strife be reconciled, All sins beguiled. Light bring no blindness, Love no unkindness; Lnowledge no ruin, Fear no undoing. From the cradle to the grave, Save, oh, save ! BY MATTHEW ARNOLD. Miscellaneous. From an Essay by Charles Lamb. A DISSERTATION UPON ROAST PIG. Mankind, says a Chinse manuscript, which my friend M was obliging enough to read and explain to me, for the first seventy thousand ages ate their meat raw, clawing or biting it from the living ani imnl, just as they do in Abyssinia to this day. This period is not abscurely hint ed at by their great Confucius in the second Chapter of his Mundane Muta tions, where he designates a kind of golden age by the term Cho-fang, liter ally the Cook's Holiday. The manu script goes on to say, that the art of roasting, or rather broiling (which take to be the elder brother) was acci dentally discovered in the manner fol lowing: The swine-herd, Ho-ti, having gone out into the woods one morning, as his manner was, to collect mast for his hogs, left his cottage in the care of his eldest son, Bo-bo, a great lubberly boy, who being iond ol playing with hre, as younkers of his age commonly are, let some sparks escape into a bundle of stra w, which kindliiig quickly, spread the can- rlagration over every part ol then- poor mansion, till it was reduced to ashes. Together with their cottage (a sorry an tediluvian make-shift of a building, you may think it), what was of much more importance, a fine litter of new-farrowed pigs, no less than nine in numljer, per ished. China pigs have been esteemed a luxury all over tho East, from the re motest periods that we read of. Bo-bo was in the utmost consternation as you may think, not so much for the sake of the tenement, which his father and he could easily build up again with a few dry branches, and the labour of an hour or two, at any time, as for the lobs of the pigs. While he was thinking what he should say to his father, and wringing his hands over the smoking remnants of one of those untimely sufferers, an odour as sailed his nostrils, unlike any scent which he had before experienced. What could it proceed from? not from the burnt cottage he had smelt that smdl before indeed tliis was by no means the first accident of the kind which had oc- curred through the negligence of this unlucKV young nre brand, much less did it resemble that of any known her) weed, or flower. A premonitory moist ening at the same time overflowed his nether lips. He knew not what to think He next stooped down to feel the pig, if there were any sigiw of life in it. He burnt his fingers, and to cool them he applied them in his booby fashion to his mouth. Some of the crumbs of the scorched skin had come away with his fingers, and for the first time iu his life (in the world's life indeed, for before Jiim no man had known it) he tasted crackling! Again he felt and fumbled &t the pig. It did not burn him so much Bow, still he licked his fingers from a sort of habit. The truth at length broke into his slow understanding, that it was the pig that smelt so, and the pig that tasted so delicious; and surrendering himself to the new-born pleasure, he fell to tearing up hands-full of the scorched gan to rain blows upon the young rogue's shoulders, as thick as hail stones, which heeded not any more than if skin with the flesh next it, and was cram- ming it down Ins tliroat in his beastly fashion when his sire entered amid the smoking rafters, armed with retributory cudgel, and finding how affairs stood,be- they had been flies. The tickling pleas-j nre which ho experienced ia his lower regions, had rendered him quite callous to any inconveniences he might foel in those Temote quarters. His father might lay on, but he could not beat him from his pig, till he had fairly made an end of it, when, becoming a little more sensible of his situation, soraetliing the following dialogue ensued: "You graceless whelp, what have you got there devouring? Is it not enough tliat you have burnt houses with vour dog' like me down three i tricks, and be hanged to you! but you must be eating fire, and I know not you got there, I say?" what what have "O, father, the pig, the pig! do come and taste how nice the burnt pig eats." ears of Ho-ti tingled with horror, j He cursed his son, and he cursed him self that ever he should beget a son that should eat burnt pig. Bo-bo, whose scent was wonderfully sharpened since moriiiug, soon raked out another pig, and fairly rending it asunder, thrust the lesser half by main force into the fists of Ho-ti, still shouting out, "Eat, eat, eat the burnt pig, father, only taste O, Lord," with such like bar barous ejaculations, cramming all the while as if he would choke. Ho-ti trembled in every joint while he grasped the abominable thing, wavering whether he should not put his son to death for an unnatural young monster, when the crackling scorching his fingers, as it had done his son's, and applying the same remedy to them, he in his turn, tasted some of its flavour, which, make what sour mouths he would for a pre tense, proved not altogether displeasing to him. In conclusion (for the manu script here is a little tedious), both father and son fairly sat down to the mess, and never left off till they had dispatched all that remained ol the litter. Bo-bo was strictly enjoined not to ' let the secret escape, for the neighbors would certainly have stoned them for a couple of abominable wretches, who could think of improving upon the good meat which God had sent them. Never theless, strange stories got about It was observed that Ho-ti's cottage was burnt down now more frequently than ever. Nothing but fires from this time forward. Some would break out in broad day, others in the nighttime. . As often as the sow farrowed so sure was the house of Ho-ti to be in a blaze; and Ho-ti himself, which was the more re markable, instead of chastising his son seemed to grow more indulgent to him than ever. At length they were watched, the terrible mystery discovered, and father and son summoned to take their trial in Pekin, then an inconsiderable assize town. Evidence was given, the obnoxious food itself produced in court and verdict about to be pronounced, when the foreman of the jury begged that some of the burnt pig, of which the culprit stood accused, might be handed into the box. He handled it, and they all handled it; and burning their fingers, as Bo-bo and his father had done before them, and nature prompting to each of them the same remedy, against the face of all the facts, and the clearest charge which judge had ever given, to the sur prise of the whole court, townsfolk, strangers, reporters, and all present without leaving the box, or any manner of consultation whatever, then brought in a simultaneous verdict of Not Guilty. The judge, who was a shrewd fellow, winked at the manifest iniquity of the decision; and when the court was dis missed, went privily and bought up all the pigs that could be had for love or money. In a few days his lordship's town-house was observed to be on fire. The thing took wing, and now there was nothing to be seen but fire in every direction. Fuel and pigs grew enor mously dear all over the district. The insurance offices one and all shut up shop. People built slighter and slighter every day, until it was feared that the very science of architecture would in no long time be lost to the world. Thus this custom of firing houses continued, till in process of time, says my . manuscript, a sage arose, like our Locke, who made a discovery that the flesh of swine, or in deed of any other animal might be cook ed (burnt, as they called it), without the necessity of consuming a whole house to dress it. Then first began the rude form of a gridiron. Boasting by the string or spit came in a century or two later, I forget iu whoso dynasty. By such slow degrees, concludes the manu script, do the most useful, and seemingly the most obvious arts make tlieir way among mankind. Without placing too implicit faith in the account above given, it must be agreed that if a worthy pretext for so dangerous an experiment as setting houses on fire (especially in these days) could be assigned in favor of any culi nary object, that pretext and excuse might be found in roast pio. For an explanation of the above call on L M. Keeler, Esq.

POPKINS AS A MIND READER. By the "Fat Contributor." Popkins said mind reading was easy enough, anybody could read minds. He was sansnea he knew how it was all done. So one evening he invited a lot of his neighbors to his house to witness his demonstrations in mind reading. j Mrs. Popkins didn't 'look with any fa-big j vor on the business. She told Popkins j he didn't know his own mind half had studied the subject thoroughly, and time, and how could he tell about the minds of others. He attempted a few remarks. "Mind," said he, then stop- : pea a:id coughed, then began again, "Mind' "Mind what i" sniped Mrs. Popkins. "Mind your own business," popped inPopkius, testily, "when I speak of mind, understand I am not making the remotest allusion to you. Now mind!" , Mrs. Popkins stated "oh!" and subsi ded into her knitting work. "The-mind," ciAitinuWl Popkins, '"is capable of being read (a dismal old maid said hers was capable of being very blue). Jsotall the men can read the human mind, for mind reading is a special gift. I have discovered it myself. Mrs. Popkins muttered her satisfac The tion that he had discovered something in himself, no one eLse ever had. Popkins then proceeded to tell various persons in the room what they were thinking of, and it was astonishing how near he came to it. "You, sir," he said to a neighbor, "are thinking of going up in a balloon." "Wonderful!" cried the "man. "beats everything how you hit it." "Then you contemplate goin' up in a balloon!'.' cried Popkins all in a glow. . "Yes well, not exactly same thing though I'm thinking of diggin'a well" Mrs Popkins shrieked with laughter, and all the young Popkins snickered at their pap. Popkins grew, redder than, ever, ..but saianotumg. fastening-ras eagle; eye on his neighbor Jones' boy "You mind is perplexed," said Popkins. ''about money matters." J'lrue, said .neighbor , Jones, "true-, every word of it." ' .! .': ; ' j v. "And you are thinkin"' - ... T ,r "Yes, as yousay, lam thinking wheth er you will ever pay me that five dollars you borrowed mor'n four years ago!" Popkins' face was blazing by this time, and he was sorry that he ever took Tip mind reading. He was making no very satisfactory headway with it He came very close to it a number of times, aa in telling a red nosed man that lie Vts thinking of something to eat, when the red nosed man was wondering if Pop-j tins wasn t going to bring on something to drink; or telling a supposed old maid that she was thinking of getting mar ried, when the supposed old maid was a married woman contemplating a divorce. There was a plain, blunt man in the party, noted for always saying what he thought Popkins asked him if .' he might read his thoughts. "Certainly," said the blunt man, f'if you can; and I'll tell you whether you are right or not." Then Popkins held one hand against the back of the man's neck, pressed a thumb between his eyes, scowled hard at his eye-brows and said: "You are thinking of the days of your childhood; of the school-house and the brook down by the mill, and of your earliest love when existence was but a lovely dream, and of " x -,. "Hold on," said the blunt "nothing of the sort..' "What are you thinking of then "I'm thinking what a d d'fool you're making of yourself, Popkins!" When the roar of laughter that .fol lowed had subsided, Popkins admitted that he might have failed in some of his experiments in mind reading, but said that he had one final test that would car ry him through triumphantly. They might blindfold him, then after some member of the company had fixed his rnind on a particular article iu the room he would lead that person to it and put his hand upon it All consenting, Pop kins was blindfolded, and Popkins' .eld est boy selected to fix his mind on some thing. He wasn't much of a boy for uiiug ins imiiu on mings, but he was adequate on this occasion. A handker chief was tied around Popkins' eyes, and taking hold of the boy's hand, he went searching after something the boy had fixed his mind on. Young Popkins' face man, was as grave as an undertaker's but it was singular how many times Popkins stumbled over the same ottoman and ran his nose against the same door casing. After falling over nearly every article of furniture in the room tripping over every one of his seven children, who de veloped a remarkable fatality in getting the way, pitching head-first among the piano keys, upsetting an acnuai-iuui. and overthrowing the honse plants, he tiunbled the whole length of the din ning room table, shot through an open door, and went bump-a-ti-bunip down the cellar stairs. This broke up the circle, and Popkins was laid up a week with his bruises, i His eldest boy hasn't considered it healthy to come around the house since, ana puts up witli his grandmother. If ropkins says anything about mind read ing, Airs. r. reads him a piece of her mind. The Chicago Tribune says: "The Com mittee appointed by Speaker Blaine to investigate the charges of outrages upon the Republicans of the South will com mand the confidence of th Ueorge i . Hoar is Chairman, and among member are Foster, of Ohio, and William Walter Phelps, of New Jersey. Any statement of facts from such a Com mittee will probably be accepted as can- by the great ulasa of people." t ii HOWLS IN THE HIPPODROME. Terrific Combat between a Male and Female Rhinoceros—the Fright of the Lions Tigers and Leopards and Bears. Among the ariiraals in the Hippodrome . are a male and female rhinoceros. The female is about two-tliirds the size of the ; male, and was put in the Hippodrome ; about a mouth ago, when Mr. Barnum's show returned from the South. The j male, a monster of strength and ugli-Bo-bo thojness, is kept in a pen, surrounded by iron bars, in the east end of the menage rie, and nest to the four elephants. The female was confined until yesterday in the cage in which she has traveled for a number of years. About a week ago Mr. Eurd instruct jed the carpenters to enlarge the pen of the male animal to double its. original size so tlint the female1 might be admit ted. Yesterday morning at 9 oclock the work of transferring the animals was begun. The elephants were driven into one of the .large dres3ing-rooms, and then the male rhinoceros;was driven in to the elephant pen. The cage contain ing the female was drawn tip, and she was safely landed in the large pen. Then the male was driven back to his old home. ' He 'waddled ' in, passed 'the door, and then suddenly stopped. He had just caught sight of the female as she camly eyed him from the other side of the pen. 1 . - THE ATTACK. The monster paused only a moment Then with a roar of rage he started for the intruder. She was in no mood to play the coward. . She , firmly , braced herself against the solid planks of the pen, and awaited the collision. The hard, horny noses of the two animals clashed. The male drew back again, and eyed his unwelcome visitor. Then, his mouth foaming, with a loud roar, he rushed forward again. He struck the female with his horn on the left side, cutting a deep gash, lifted her about six feet from the ground, and nearly threw her over the wall of the pen. ' The fight was getting desperate, and Mr. Costello and his aids hastened to rescue the female. Picthforks, wagon bars, and every article that was' attaina ble was used upon the infuriated mon ster. He was held at bay for a time, and large planks were shoved through the bars to form a -fence- between .the beasts. 1 !- " '" '1 ' BARRIERS BROKEN DOWN. The male made one furious dash, car ried the barricade away in an instant, and again the poor female was raised up on his horny "nose, and thrown into the air. The bellowings of the combatants wfere echoed by the roar of the Cons, and the fearful laugh of the hyenas. The wild beasts scented blood, and every cage in the great menagerie was a scene of wild excitement The lions and tigers, the leopards and the bears, jumped and howled and roared, and above all arose the dismal wail of the frightened elephants. 'For over an hour the combat lasted, and the male rhinoceros, being, the larger of the two, was rapidly using up the weaker female. At one time the two huge bodies came together with a crash against the iron bars of the pen, bending them like so many wires, and the heavy planking of the framework cracked and broke like reeds. The beasts were frothing at the mouth, and the cow was bleeding.' At length, just as the male was preparing for another at tack,, one of the employes . thrust a pitchfork into his mouth; the only ! vul nerable point that could be reached from the outside, and with a roar of MINGLED PAIN AND RAGE, the brute drew back, and for a few mo ments stood in his corner, eyeing his an tagonist. Advantage was taken of this lull in the fight, and the two were separa ted by a fence of planks and wagon bars, which were thrust across the pen from the outside, and securely lashed to- the bars. Over this was thrown a piece of canvas, and the beasts were thus shut from each other's view. It required two hours more of coax ing to get the cow back to her old cage. Notwithstanding the thickness of her hide, which is like iron, the horn of her antagonist had gored her frightfully. On her left side were two deep gashes, from . which the blood was flowing freely. The male wasmiinjuretL having only a slight wound back of the left ear. He ran as nimbly as a rhinocerous can run around his pen, and seemed to glory in his victory. As soon as the cow was removed he became as gentle to his 'keepers as ever. One of the most touching incidents of this remarkable battle was furnished by the large elephant, "Betsy." A large dog is always in the corner of the elephant's pen, near Betsy. This is "Carlo," a prime favorite of everybody connected with the Hippodrome. Carlo and Betsy are much attached, and when Betsy was taken to the dressing room Carlo followed. The door was left open, and Carlo, hearing the noise, ran to the the door, peeped out, and then stepped out Betsy followed him to the door, stretched out her trunk, seized him, and drew him in out of the reach of danger. This was done four times, and then Carlo yielded to the force of circum stances, and lay down beside his pro tector. . . Though badly hurt, it is thought that the female rhinoceros will live. N.

One smashed the plates all to bits, which was satisfac tory, but also smashed the gun, which was not so satisfactory. Another kept smashing armor plates until the thirteenth round, when it was itself converted into old iron. The third fired twice with fifty pounds of powder in each charge, and with one hundred pounds burst. The experiments have demonstrated, at a cost of $100,000. to the government, that armor plating at a short range can not stand the Wiard gun, and that the Wiard gun cannot stand its own dis charges.
