Thou, -vvlio, dost dwell alone
Thou, who dost know thine own
Thou to whom all are known
From tlis cradle to the grave
Save, oil, save !
From the world's temptations,
From tribulations ;
From the fii:rce anguish
Wherein we languish ;
From tho torpor deep
Wherein we he asleep
Heavy as d:ath, cold as the grave ;
Save, oh, save !
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 !

From an Essay by Charles Lamb.
A DISSERTATION UPON ROAST
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
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'
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
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

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 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

"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
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
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

HOWLS IN THE HIPPODROME.
Terrific Combat between a Male and
Female Rhinoceros—the Fright of
the Lions Tigers and Leopards
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 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
'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.

Mr. Norman Wiard has a theory con
cerning rifled heavy ordinance. Three
guns have been made and rifled accord
ing to his plans and fired at thick armor
plating at short range. 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. Now Wiard can go off.

Your favor of the 16th inst. is at hand. I sat
up Boiler and ngine,ran them under 70 lbs. steam
pressure, ana sawea nait a com ot wood twice
two (beech and maple) in liy minutes. I then
sawed 3X cords of wood twlceintwoin 19 minutes.
can saw T cords of wood twice in two in one
hour with the No. 4 boiler.
1 bad a platform made for the boiler and engine
and placed them on a pair of bob sleighs, going
around sawing wood. I had the agent of Willlama'
Cleaner bring a thresher and cleaner and I ran
through 50 bushels oi oats. .The agent thinks I
can run a 3 11 Cleaner with the boiler and enolne-.
ran the boiler under a pressure of 90 lbs., and it
airiv made the cleaner howl. A No. 4 boiler and a
3,V H. P. engine is plenty heavy enonjjh to run a
auw or a 2 li. thresher and cleaner.
TheboilfT. by putting the exhaust nine in rhn .
smoke stack and using sort coal, will make steam
enough fur a 5 U. P. engine, as I had the damper
ahiit half the time, and the door ojen, and then
would make more steam than I wanted. The
harder the work'the more steam it make,
