A detective declares that men will talk and give themselves away. If they could only hold their tongues they would he safe. An American vessel was mysteriously set on lire at sea and abandoned; but the live was smothered, and it was afterwards found that ner cargo, which had been insured for large sums, was fraudulent all the way through, the wine casks being hiied with water, etc. The sailors swore that the hatches had been closed, and there being no other way of getting into the hold the cause of the tire baffled every body. Eut the captain and mate, who were both arrested, soon* began to talk. The mate was given to understand that the captain had made a confession so 3 10 was in a hurry to tell all lie know to got out of the scrape himself; and with the mate's confession to show the captain there was no difficulty in bringing him out. The thing was so well contrived, if these men had not given it away it could never have been found out. In the cook's galley, under each of the four feet of the stove, they put a block of wood, as if to raise the stove. Under one of these blocks was a hole opening directly into the hold. Under the hold was a lot of inflammable stuff, well soak ed with turpentine. One day, while the cook was out of his ga'ley, the captain and mate raised the stove, took away the block, dropped a lighted match through the hole, and the fire was started. These two men not only talked themselves into a prison, but put their employers in a pretty scrape. "Show me a man eating lettuce," «aid Lord Beaconsfffld, "and I will tell you wiiat manner of man lie is." The highest epicurean authorities ail agree that to cut lettuce is to ruin it. Some facetious writer declares that the greatest puzzle of the age is the strawberry shortcake sold at restaurants. The puzzle is to find the strawberry, and thousands of people have given up the search in disgust. ignorance of Mexicans as to Matters. There are some peculiar qu dittos of the Mexican mind which will, for i while, stand iu the way of quick prog ress. Thus, very few of them will buy their railroad tickets until the train is in full view of the station; and, until a short time ago, preferred paying their cash to the conductor. They have an incomprehensible itching to defer any enterprise, or even trivial work, unt:l the morrow. When these defects of their disposition and training are un derstood, and patience and manage ment are exercised, a fair service can be got out of them. As exemplifying how little Mexicans know of the rights of common carriers, the other day, when Gen. Diaz stopped here, .the company, as a courtesy, tendered the municipality the use of their cars for the General's party. Thereupon the city authorities undertook to let everybody have a free ride, and, until the matter was legally explained to them, threat ened trouble to tlio railway people. These mistakes cf the Mexicans, in their dealing with our people, spring not so much from a desive to annoy as from ignorance. —Monterey Cor. ^Tew York Sur..
