Hidden, of the Uuited S'ftte Naval Ohrtrvalory, scut a paper, which w is read before the meeting. It discussed the question of the number of words used iu speaking and writing by individuals, and was called for'h by an estimate of the Hon. Oeorge 1 Mar.-di us to the number of words in Siuke-peare'a vocabulary, and In Unit of other writers. Mr. Marsh has made the statement that au intelligent man will use iu speaking and writing le.-s than 10,000 words. Prof. Holden madeacount of the uuui ber of word beginning with each let ter of the niptiuiiel, and noted the or der of frequency of initial letters in Webster' D.clioiiary. He found the latter a follow : IS, C, P, A, 1), K, H, T, F, M, I, E, H, L, U, U. W, O, V, X, J, Q, K, Y, Z, X. He theu proceeded to ascertaiu the average number of words iu the dic tionary per page. Then he couuted out the words which lie himself was accustomed to use in speaking or wri ting on several pages lor each initial letter; and from uu average thus at taineil, he estimated that his own vocabulary was 33,4oo words. High as this is, he can not see the way lo reduce it materially. A friend in "the Palenlolllee, Mr. Faniuhar, assistant librarian, tested lnsowu writing, and concluded thai he must have a still larger vocabulary. Piof. Whitney, of iile, has written to say that he can not set; why the method should not give Correct results. From Mis. Clark's Concordance .f .Siiakesj eare (with the imporiant omission of all Verbi -pelleil like noun) ty a similar process Prut". Huiden fnidi in .Shakes peare s vocabulary 24.000 words. Mil ton, in Ins poems, is found to use 17, 377 words; in his prose a lynch greater number is probable. In the English liible tin re are only 7.2'.0 winds, ex clusive of proper nanus. In l!os worth's Dictionary of the Anglo-Saxon there are 11,!13 words; iti Dr. John Camden Hotteli's Dictionary of sKug, lo.uoo words. The wide difference be tween most of these estimates and those of the Hon. (i.-i'-ge P. Marsh has called out a letter from the latter, in which he exclaims that he Used the word "word" iu the sense in which all philologists would agree in employ ing it i. e., he took only the simple stem, and not the inflected forms. Thus, while Prof. Holden counted lov er, loveless, and lovely as three words, Mr. Marsh couuted them as only oue. Prof. Holden concludes that a vocab ulary of 30, 000 words is not unusual among writers. In the debate which followed, Pro fessor March declared that he re garded Mr. Marsh as right In his es timates and in his way of making them. He, Prof. March, thought that tho writers who were the most skilled in the use of language were not among the largest users of words. Ureal success iu works of literature was won by making things apparent to a large cir cle of cultivated readers. The necessity of making himself easily understood compels s ich a writer to eniplcy lamiliar words. A part of Shakes peare's art was in pu'ting common words iu such new connection that the phra-es lii-i-atii" idioms, but inunifea'.iy strange words 1 1 I only rarely meet thin purpose. T lie touch of nature which make all i.ieii kin, is in using luncum.'. unplicity. It is due to Ibis tieccssily Unit Milion's poetry lias a smaller vocabulary than his prose. A couple of enterprising Dutrliuicti " doing " the clothing business in At lanta, are interviewed by a customer in search of a coat. The senior uf the firm handles the new comer, andnin liudsa"lirst cl-n-i lit." In answer as to the price, the response is eigh teen dollar. ' "Well, sir, I like your coat very much, but I don't like the price.'' " Yell, inine fieiit, ze price is noting so you like ze coat. We let you take ' em at lifieeti dollar !" Tho customer still coin) lain of the price, saying that fifteen iloll irs was too much. This was too heavy for I be dealer, so taking the customer to the extreme end of the store, and drauing him into a dark corner, whispers in his ear : " Mine fretit I let you have zat mat for twelve dollar an,; a half." " Vell, sir," Mild the lu-tomer, '' 1 like your coat very much, end am snt ielied with the price, yet, I would like to know why this mysterious perform ance." " Yell, mine frtut, you see dot Ic-tle 1'iau deie V He vas mine broiler.

His experience! nnd sen sations during a recent air voyage are iie-crincil as follows In t lie Sentinel Higher and still higher. Above me Hie clouds seemed part of the arch of Heaven, and J. could not reach them. Already the gas of the balloon had expanded until it was pouring out at the bottom like very thin smoke, and it did not smell good. In fact it had the iwwt abominable smell I ever ex perienced. If I could not reach the clouds above, long banks of them lav on the hills to the right anil left far below me, with their white bellies turned up like fish. They looked soft ami tempting as leather beds, hut as they were live or six miles either way distant, it seemed safer not to jump into them. Dead silence next, except the occasional soft whistle of a loco motive. Houses only dots of gray roof, and people invisible. It does a man good to stand by himself at times, and in the face of snnething which he htlieves is danger. It strips the moss from him. lictwee!) me and the world was over n mile of absolute, unbroken space. IJetween nie and eternity only the thickness of var nished canvas. I was a planet; sub ject, of course, to the attractions and laws which govern planets, but hav ing attractions of my own, and a pow er proportionate to my size, on the en tire universe. I felt the more pride in this becuse on earth there seems to be no attraction about me, except for tract distributor and flies. At such a time a man will reach into himself and feel around for his soul, as a thief reaches into a large poultry yard after a small chicken, in the "dark. The man will usually II nil his soul in his boots. At length it seemed au age. but bail been hut eighteen ininuies since I started. I could hear voices agaiu. I hail been singing " Where, oh, where has my little dog gone," and I kepi it up. I had the advantage of those people below. When I am on earth people run away mostly when I sing, or else they throw things at me; but here I could sing my soul and gizzard out. and those wretches below had got to take it. They could not get away. So I sung about that suppositional dog, and to'.d them to write me a pho tograph, and send me a postal card," and "Meet me darling Josie at the gate,' and a variety of other airs suited to a distant but long suffering audi ence. I sung some of them baldhead ed before I got down. The Mountain Meadow Massacre. As the trial of certain persons for participating in and inciting the Mountain Meadow massacre is now progressing at Beaver, Utah, a recital of that incident will not be uninter esting. The following sketch is from the New York Times: lu September, 1So7, au emigrant train from Arkansas, consisting of about one hundred and fifty people, men, women and children, Willi forty watroiis. eight hundred head of cattle, and sixty horses and mules, passed through the Salt Lake region, bound to California. Their property was val uable, the proceeds of it being after ward declared lo exceed $30,000. The numbers und strength of the party afforded protection to a train of dis affected Mormons, who took this occasion to flee from the horrors of Salt Lake Valley. On ihe loth of September, while camped in Mountain Meadow, about 320 miles wtst of Salt Lake City, the emigrants were at tacked by a baud of white people painted and dressed like Indians. No assault from the Indians could have been expected, as the wild tribes of that region are harmless, degraded creatures, only a few dugrees above the root-diggers of the Pacific States. The emigrants defended themselves with spirit after the lir-t dash, iu which .hey lost ten or twelve men, was made by their assailants. liehind their bar ricade of wagons they kept up such a vigorous fui-ilade that after a siege of five days the enemy withdrew. The camp was next visited by a wagou bearing a white Hug and containing Jacob Haight, then one of the Presi dents of the Mormon Church, and John I). Lee, a Mormon Bishop, and also adopted son of Brigbatu Y'oung. These men professed to be on good terms with Ihe "Indians," and offered to act as mediators in the interests of peace. It was proposed that the emigrants should march out flout camp, leaving everything behind, including their guns. The Mormon emissaries agreed lo furnieliTa guard tin lice ti the settle ments, l'hise conditions were accept ed. The 1 tile procession begun to move when it was fired upon hy the guaid, the so-called 'Indians' joining. The men were first killed ; the women and children run on a few hundred yards and then fell. The plunder was taken to Salt Lake City and the ad joining settlements, anil divided. Mr. J. Foiney, Superintendent of Indian alfaiis lor L'tah, testified that the church dignitaries alone received prop erty e-timated to lie worth j3n,0on. The skeletons of one hundred and twenty persons Were siib:-eijueiilly collected on that fatal lield and hurried in one mound. A pile of rocks marks the spot, und on u huge cross, erected as a monument, was placed the inscription, ' Vengeance U mine, suith the Lord.' At the time the United Slates troops were mareliing lo l'tah by direction of President Buchanan. Bishop Pratt had ju-t li-i'ii killed iu Arkunsas by a man who" wife he had attempted to abduct, and I: e Mormons were in a IiIl'Ii state of excitement. They iiad readily em braced the theory that the earth and its fullness belonged to the Lo'd's saints, and that they weie the taints. The lap! e of years has only deepened the conviction that the murderers were Mormons sent out by command from the heads of their ecclesiastical gov trnmeni. I.lrls luu'lIlo II. " Don't do what our fair young readers w ill u-k. There are a great many things that you ought to do, and a still larger number that you had bet ter not do. Foremost and prominent among the latter is to undertake to re-1 form a drunkard by marrvliior him Depend upon It, if you can not keep him sober during those days of the average woman's strongest influence over wayward man, the season of court ship, Ihe changes will be decidedly against success. Home women have succeeded i:i (his labor of love, lint there are ten thousand failures to one success. It is a field of missionary la bor that hut few of the sex are titled to enter. If John gets drunk once a month whilst he is billing and conn ing, depend upon it that he will require semi-montniy seasons or liacclianalian recreation when lie becomes a Bene dict. A man who gets drunk is neces sarily a bad or foolish man when be is under the influence of liquor and 's ve ry apt to soon become a bad man wheth er drunk or sober. The romantic idea that n woman who can reform n drunkard Is deserving of a crown of glory, is all Ihe veriest bosh. They would be shocked by the suggestion that the man who marries a fallen woman and restores, her to a life ofvir ture, would bedeserving of the prai-e of men, and the thanks of all woman kind. The latter would be a much easier ta-k than the former, and more likely to succeed. The debasement in one case is generally Incurable, and scorns the influence of kindness and affection, whilst in (he other, the op prrtunity to escape from a life of deg radation whuld in most caes insure a hearty co-operation with t lie mission ary iu such a lield. But the drunkard, as is generally Ihe case, may be addict ed to a variety of the other vices, each one of which ought to lie considered us repulsive as that of drinking. Still we find pure, virtuous, refined and del icate women risking their lives and happintss iu the delusive hope of res cuing and restoring them. Instances of t lie terrible failures iu this mission ary field are to be found in every street aud luue of a great city, with the ac companiment of scores of the desolate widows and orphans of tho-e who have staggered into drunkards; graves. Still, the experiment is continued by new votaries, who think that they can succeed where others have failed. It is all a terrible delusion. Love and devotion are powerless on a drunkard. Nothing but an iron will ami n firm ness that few women possess can check the career of a man who has once ta ken to strong drink. He must become subject to her will, aud restrained from his evil courses by a power stronger than love aud kindness. There are enough men who become drunkards after marriage for all reasonable pur poses ot experiment, wituout taking them fully trained in a career of vice and debauchery. Therefore, we say, uirie, uon i uo it A New Story of Mr. Lincolm. ISew York Tribune. . Iii his speech at Mr. Beecher's house, it Peekskill, Monday night, the Hon. Chauncey M. Depew was dispelled, by an allusion to the great amount of testimony and the little evidence taken iu the six months, trial of the Til ton suit, to tell au anecdote of the late President Lincoln, which we do not remember to have seen printed. Mr. Depew prefaced it by savinc flint, when, as Secretary of State of New York, he visited Wnsiiiuufnn in 1S64 to look ufter matters diredlv to Mr. Lincoln, who was one day re minded of a orsty, which he declared was one of the only two anecdotes original with him, notwithstanding his reputation for story telliinr. " I only apply Ihe good stories others tell me," tlie President said. The story which he thereupon proceeded to tell Mr. Depew was to the effect that many years ago, when practicing in Illinois, lie had appeared for the defendant In a case of assault and battery, in which the complainant did not seem lo be very much injured, although he had been ttirough a long series of brawls. In the course of the plaintiff's exami nation, Mr. Lincoln asked : 'How much ground did vou fight over-." "About six acres," was the reply. " Don't you think' asked Mr. Lin coln, "that that was an almighty mull crop of light for so much ground !" Amid the roars of Iwughter which followed, and in which the voice of Mr. Beecher was head above all the others, Mr. Depew suggested lhat it was needless to make the application to such a quickly appreciative au dience. The Central Catholic ouotes a para graph from another paper, which says mat European uainoiics are welcome in this country, " so long as thev cease to interfere with our institutions' and politics from a rtiligious basis." Tho Central Catholic proceeds to denounce tne current folly or claiming the L ni ted States as Protestant country, and adds :" Now learn, poor simpletons, once for all, that the tables are turned on you. These Catholics and their brethren in this country will tolerate you, and give you a fair chance iu our own country, whether you behave or not. The country is ours, by discov ery and conquest, and will remain our country, not withstanding tho fact that we have allowed your miserable blue blood to Le fed on this pure air of freedom. From P.ehring's Strait to Cape Horn America is a Catholic country ; and in these United States, notwithstanding your importance aud ill-breeding, we give you equal rights with ourselves." A New Novel by George Eliot. (b'.tijon Corre'ponJence Uotun Aucrtifr.l Before pa-sing from this sul jeet I shall give your readers a piece oi good news, which, atllie time 1 write, has iiol ytt been made public here, and w hich is that George Eliot lias near ly finished a new work of fiction, the first part of which will probably ap pear in the autumn. Notwithstand ing the proverbial fully of prophesy ing, I venture to predict that this nov el will be one of her most tuccessful works. Thesubjectof it is compara tively modem, nud, as far us I know, has never been treated by any other novelist. The other day, when tho stamp clerk at the Vickrhurg Post Office re fused to " lick on " a three-center for an old lady who wanted to post a let ter, she stood back, gave him a gluuce of scorn, and indignantly exclaimed: " Well, if folks ain't gettimr iiowerful peart and bawiy these days! 1 bulieve If Ciabricl should blow his trumpet to morrow that half the young folks would want to git on starched fchlrts afore they went to heaven." Parasites in the Human Ear. A young man named Henry Futt her applied lo Dr. Lindu the other day asking for relief from a terrible pain In the side of his head which was driving him almost to distraction. His head was swollen and the blood slightly onzing out of his ear. He said he had sufleredd terrible agonies, and thought the dllllculty wan some where iu his ear. The doctor exam ined the ear and observed something wiggling far lu towards the drum. Dipping a feather in carbolio acid tie Inserted it in the ear, and was sur prised to see a live maggot bop out He then injected some acid killed the remaining maggots, which tum bled out where he could reach them with pincers, and In this way he re moved seven large maggots of a pecu liar kind. They were about half an inch long and an eighth of an inch thick, larger at the bead than the (ail, and formed of a succession of rings. Examined under a microscope the maggots were found to possess three sharp horns In their heads, with which they dig their way into the flesh. They bad dug in tiie ear con siderably, and were piercing the drum. In fact Futcher had beeu unable to henr with that ear for some time. The pain caused by these animals was almost unbearable, and yptthe real cause had not been suspected. The doc tor has made inquiries and searched authorities, but is unabls to find a like case recorded. He supposes that some fly or insect must have blown iu the ear. He has preserved the maggots in alcohol, ami the seven of them almost lill a common phial. Oshkosh Xorth wtslern. A Story of Daniel Webster. Marjhficld Corrospondonce New York Tribune. While at Marshfield I could not but remember an anecdote of the renown ed Senator from Massachusetts. Many yecrs ago, when he was at the height of bis power aud reputation, he was staying at the Astor House, where Col. Charles A. Stetson, his intimate friend, always kept a large room for him on the tirst floor on the Vesey street side. A number of Webster's friends he always had a great follow inghad dined with him one eve ning. When they bad returned to the room iu question, and were talking familiarly, one of them, warm with mingled curiosity aud hero-worship, put Urn question : "Would you be kind enough to tell me, Mr. Webster, what is the most serious thought that has ever occupied your mind?" The divine Daniel was silent for a few mo ments, evidently buried in deep re flection. Then obeying the oratorical Instinct so strong w'ithin him, be rose to his feet and said in his grand man ner: "I will answer your question, air. The most lerious indeed, the most solemn (bought that has ever occupied my mind is my awful responsibility to Almighty God." Thereupon, as my informant, who was present, lias told me, Webster burst Into such a torrent of eloquence as the assembled company had never heard, even from the golden mouth of him who addressed them. They were stirred to their depths by his impassioned oratory, which poured forth for fully fifteen minutes. Maxims of Rochefoucauld. If we had no faults we should not take so much pleasure iu noticing th'. ni in others. 1 .ve hud no pride we should not complain of it in others. Whatever difference there mny seem to be between the fortunes of men there is always a certain compensation of good and evil that tender them equal. One is never so happy nor so un happy as one imagines himself to be. Every one complains of his memory, and no one complains of his judg ment. We give nothing so liberally as ad vice. Ft is much easier to be wise for others than to be wise for ourselves. It is the characteristic of great intel lects to make many things to be un derstood in few words. Small minds, on the contrary, have the gift of speak ing much and saying nothing. In order to know things well it Is necessary to know the details, and as they are almost iuflniteour knowledge is always superficial and imperfect. However brilliant an action may be, It ought to be considered great when it is not the effect of a worthy purpose Eerkshires. Hays the Livestock Journal, which is one of our best authorities on stock: The Berkshire is probably the aearest thoroughbred among swine, and in that class is like the Arabian among horses. It is undoubtedly the highest type of hog. They have all the good qualities, are good breeders, good mothers, mature early, fatten easily and at n young age, and can live on clover and grass almost as well as sheep. Home people have a prejudice against the black color in swine, and would on that account object to either Berkshire or ICssex. Crazed by Tobacco. The Pulaski (Teuu.) Citizen says: "We are extremely sorry to announce that the friends of Mr. Claude J. Woodi ing have been forced to take steps to deprive him of his liberty for a time, on account of the prevalent opinion among our people that his mind is over-balanced. His aberration is announced by physicians to be due to l lie excessive use of tobacco, and it was determined to confine him so that he could be elfectually weaned from it.
