A Hot Bath. A couple of gelitlemten, whom we shall call John Smith and James I Bro~un, were seated in the ante-room c of a bath-house, awhiting their 'turns' a for a bath. After they got tired of twirling their thumibs, Sumth asked.: Brown whether heo preferred a hot or' a cold bath. Brown, who was remark- t ably fond of running a rig on any one, r said he was partial,to hot hbaths, and v enjoyed them so .frequently that he i didn't think there was <any other man t in creation that could remain in water c 4t the temperature lie ordinarily used. a Smith was one of those kind of men t who never permit themselves to be a outdone iii anything, and one word led to another, until at length Smith c proposed the following wager, to p which Brown agreed at once: Two baths, in rooms adjoining, e were to be prepared. Cold water, to the depth of six inches, to be let in. t They were to enter at the same in- 1 stunt-the hot water tap then to be h turned, and the one that first cried t "enough !" was to pay for a supper a and "tixins." Smith went honestly c to work, entered the bath, and turned 1 on the hot water, taking special good N care to draw up his legs as far as pos. % sible. Brown turned the hot water s tap, but instead of permitting the hot water to remain in the bath, he let it out by means ofa contrivance he man aged to rig up. The tap was to lie ,'turned," but there wis nothing said t about where the water should go. t Brown said to hinmsell : "If I don't boil that Smith, it will , not be my fault." 1 Presently Smith found the water too hot for comfort, and said, How is it with you. Brown I" "Hot enough," was the reply. "I ( shall have to give up right off, if ,youn don't," he continued, as lie lay cool enough at the bottom of the bath. I Smith was thinking about giving in i beat, but Brown's words encouraged t him to hold out a little longer. "I'm perfectly cool yet," said Smith, I as he writhed and twisted about, "and I can stand out two minutes longer, so I you'd better give up, Brown." "The water is 'tarnal hot, you a know ; but I shall hold out a few so- c conds longer," said Brown. Smith could not: With a half-sup pressed cry of pain lie sprang from I the hot water literally parboiled Has- I tily drawing on some of his clothing, I he entered Brown's room, and saw c him lying very comfortably at the bottom of the empty bath, smoking a cigar. He found that he had been º done brown as well as boiled, when Brown insisted that his tap was turn- 1 ed fairly, but as not a word was said about where the water should go, 1 lie preferred passing it through the I plug hole. Smith promises to pay for the supper as soon as he congeals which will not be just yet. THa MIssIssIPPI.--Mr. Brancroft re marks in the tenth volume of his His tory of the United States, just out : The Mississippi river is the guar dian and the pledge of the union of the States of hMaerica. Had they been confined to the eastern slope of t"ire Alleghenies there would have been no geographical unity between them, and the thread of connection between lands that merely fringed the Atlantic must soon have been Ssundered. The Father of Rivers gathersa'hlis waters from all the clouds that bretak betwveen the Allegheinies aadt4hnfurtheriranges of the Rocky Iopntaine. Theridges e f the eastern ehanin blow their beads at ..th North ihd at the South, so that long before science became the companion of mnii . nature herself pointed out to the bar r bsrou.s races how short portages join his tributary rivers to those of tits -Atlantic coast. At the other side his mightiest arm interlocks with the arms of the Oregon and the Colorado, and by the conformation of the earth itself, marshals highways to the Paci fic. From his remotest springs ie Sreftees to suffer his waters to be di vided; but as he bears them all to the bosom of the ocean the myriads of flags that wave above his head are all the enligns of one great people. Statesarger than kingdoms flourish where he passes, andbeneath his steps cities start into being iore marvelous i their reality than fabled creations of enchantment. His magnificent vat ley, lying in the best part of the tem perate zane, salubrious, wonderfully fertile, is the chosen master ground of the most vari6ns of human nculture brought together by men salnmiondi frenrll the civilizedt nations of the eitb,.and joiued in the bonds of come .mon citizenship by the strong, invis . ible attracstin oe(republican fredoion.

Cosgrove, the bold and fear less Editor of the YIrldicator at Nat- St etitoches, has been arrestedt upon t some trntiped up hallrge and is now Ih "in durance vile." This is an out- m rage for which there is no parallel li since the dcays when Seward used to pi tinkle his little bell and order the :ur- o0 rest and coifinement of Editors and pi whom he.pleased in the North. Some at day a retributive Justice will over ritle all the Constitutional tights se- p4 cure l to the citizens of what was once fit a fre;, country.

We are not informed as to the spe. ti cific charge ;against our friend Cos- el grove, but we endorse any and every- hi thing he has ever said in the Vitdii- g: cater, and if the officer who holds the warrant for his arrest will have the ca kindness to inform us what partieci- ca lar articles in the lirdicator has fi; brought Cosgrove under the bann of s& the law, we will republish them upon our own responsibility, aild lie may hi conimc after us too. We want a free press and if we are not to have it we would like to know it right' now, so p1 we may understand just where we stand.

The Ili daughter drew up her queenly form 1ia to its full height, and exclaimed : it "Mother, terrible, tragical and sub- n, limely retributive will be the course A pursued by me if you refuse to allow is him to place his alabbster lips to mine, and enrapture my immortal g soul by imprinting angelic sensations p of divine bliss upon the iudispensa- II ble members of my human physiog nomy, and then kindly allowing me q to takesa withdrawal from his bene- a ficent presence." The mother feebly p admitted that her objections were t overrauled. .1 He went.out. between the acts, andti returned vigorously chewing a clove. t His wife asked him where lie had been, and he said. "To see a friend." She calmly replied that she thought t his friend must be dead, as she could i smell his bier. A party of young men were out serenading a few nights since. They c sat on the pavement, which had been recently paged ,,With a tar solution. t SNext morning the rear of six pair of pants dotted`the walk, and music is leard no more afoibd that cottage. s f A young gentleman was frequently a f cautioned by his ,father to vote for e I "measures, not men," He promised t I to do so, and soon after received a t bribe to vote for a Mr. P'eck.

F Mr. Archibald Stanhope -a groggy sentimentalist, residing in Buckley In street,. Philadelphia-conceived the bi harrowing suspicion that his'wife was to not as passionately fond of him as a st lady of good taste should be and to Ct put the matter to a fair trial, Ihe hit I) on a little stratagem which he put in b: practice the other day with the re- of suits hereafter to be detailed. at Hle took a suit of clothes and com- at posed an eflligy of himself, by stuf fing the garments with a quantity of of straw, which had lately been dis- to charged frmhi an old bed. H-laving suspended this figure to a rafter in w the garret by means of 'a piece of of clothes-line, he ensconced himself be hind a pile of runbbish iii the same b( garret to watch the effect. After a while his little daughter at came up for a skipping-rope, and th cailght a glimpse of the suspended an figure. She tra down the stairs, dr screaming : p "Oh, mother, mother, daddy has hung himself!" sp "Now for it4" thought Archibald ; a "we shall have a touching scene bh presently." to ."Hung himself!" he heard Mrs. S. repent, as she walked leisurely up- or stairs; "he hasn't got spirit enough wi for such a thing, or he wouid have he done it long ago: Well, I believe lic ge has done it, however," she continued, sil as she came in view of Archibald's straw representative. or "Mloll," to the little girl, I think he in ought to be cut down. You had bet-. n ter go into the kitchen and get a knife, umy dear but don't go down too fast, ti; or yon might fall and hurt yourself. di Stay, I forgot-there's no knife in the Ila kitchen sharp enough.

And, Molly, while you are in the ti neighborhood, you can call at your tI Aunt Snkeyts and ask how the baby to is. And, Molly, 3oucan stop at the ti grocery shop as you come back and get a pound of best moist sugar. , Poor Archy!" sighed Mrs. S., when at her daughter had departed, "I hope t1 we'll get him. down before the vital cA spark's extinct--for these buryings are very troublesiome, and cost money., He wanted to put an end to himself, too; and I think I ought to let him have his own way for once in his life ; le used to say that I was always a to crossing him. I wish he hadn't spoiled tl that new clothes-line-an old rope d might have answered his purpose." Here a voice, which sounded like y that of the supposed suicide, broke a in on Mrs. Stanhope's soliloquiy with, #j "You confounded Jezebel, I'll be the ' death of you!" Mrs.. S, thinking this mnut, of i course, be a ghostly exclamation, at- cl tered a wild scream, and attempted to escape down the narrow staircase. t Archibald, starting from his plaice of concealment, gave chase.

CAE: or" TEAl Hloursi.--The fd lowilig gooud advice' to 'A:amsters hIa been published in the; form of a p') ter, and sent out by the Massaachu setts Society for the Prevention Ilif' Cruelty to unimals. It is signed by I)aniel IN. Blanchard, and indorsed by several veterinary surgeons,',ngenfs of railway and express companies, and by Charles A. Currier, special agent of the Society : Potatoes or carrots may be given ontce or twice a week to good advan tage. See that your horse is kept clean, warm and comfortable, with plenty of beddiug. A piece of rock salt should always be left in the manger. See that his harness is kept soft and clean,, particularly the inside of the cllar, which ought always to be smooth, as the perspiration, when dry, causes irritation, .and is liable to produce galls oh thle shoulder. The collar sliould fit closely, withl space enough at the bottom to admit a man's hand. If too large it has the bad effect of drawing the. shoulldcs together. On no consideration should a tars: or any worik-horse be 'omnpelled to wear a martingale, nH it draws til, head down and prevents him fronm getting into an easy and natural po sition. The check-rein may be used, but only tight enough, to keep the head in a natural position, and it should never be wouu1d aound tihe lHaes. See that the hatuesare buckled tight enough at the top to .hring the draf-iron near the center of the col lar. If too loti it not only inter feres with the action of the shouhlder, but gives the collar is uleven'bear ing. Caution should be taken that the girth is not buckled too tight, par ticularly on strisii, teams, for when the traces tsi' dtraightened it has the tendency to: draw the, girth against the belly and distress the horse. See that the horse is kept well shod, with ia good, stiff" shoe, always calkedt at toe and heel on hind feet, as it is there where all the propelling power comnes from when heavily' loaded. Keep the feet good and strong, b, not allowing'them to be cut away too ift~eh by the blackmith. T!iebest ijndgmefit sholid be used in loading, taking into consideration the condition of.,the street and the distance to be traveled. .
