THE CANVASMAN S STOJ&Y. Nothing takes like a circus ; and onra t ikes better than anybody's I can tell yon. I am only an understrapper now. yoa know, but the guvnor did the right thing by me, and, of onrse, I do the right thing by him. Yon see, w& al ways make a good fuss in the nhape of well billing the places we are going to, for it doesn't do to be stingy in that way, and the guvnor has some spicy af fairs of rampojouB horses, and wonder ful jumping, and all in colors to catch the eye ; while for the shop windows there's pome lithographs of the per forming horse, or the helephant, cr the gutta-percha brolhers tisl in a human knot, while every one who exhibits has a ticket for free admission. But it's a queer life, sir, and one not to be envied only, yom see, one must live ; and when there's a wife and some little uns, why they must live too ; and having been in the profession all my life why, it don't seem as if I could do anything out. There, now theu, them's two of mine coming in the ring now. First one's 11, and t'other's 9. "The Tigmy Twisters," we call 'era in the bill, and they don't do amiss for their size. Pitch a somerset easy, either one of them, There they go, yoa see ; and after another year or two's eddicitiou they'll be a great help to the family, besides having a profession of their own to make 'em independent when they won't stop in the nest any longer. All "they've got to do is to ketp clear of their father's accident forget a hip joint put out, as I did, aid then the country doc tor to say it was a strain, and never try to put .t in until it was too late get in for an accident like that through tread ing on a piece of orange-peel, and slip ping -w hen running for a jump, why it's a doer np for life, as with me. lint it is a queer life, sir. No rest, no comiort, no peace at ail. Hotel always. and say, now here's to day : Long dis tance to come and we had to start early to get here in good time ; then there was to dress and take part in the pro cession at one o elocs. Two o clock, vou know, was the firat performance. Th t was over about four ; and then. of course, there was beginning again at half-past seven. Ah ! and uobodv knows bit them as has been at it, what being abut in the cold, wet weather is dressing and undressing in a canvas tent, witn the wind cnttirig through, and tlien hopping over the mud to get in the damp ring, when you're ready to phiver as you slip about, if the weather has be?u very bad. Well, von tret your part through, and then, nine cases out of ten, what sort of a place have you to go into ? Why, one where there's no rest for you on account of its being a busy night because of the circus, and tne House rum bo, p raaps you get an nonr or two s sleep, p raps not, accord ing to circnmstances. As for me, you know, I'm one of the tent men ; for though one leg shorter tnan the other makes me limp a good deal, I'm strong, you know, and my job is to see tne tent up. lou ve noticed - i ii- -. e i us siriito ii as last as ever we can as soon as the performance is nearly over, Well, there's a deal to do over that, can tell you ; for look at the weight of the great tent, and its poles and ropes ; besi les which it is most always wet, and so ever so much heavier than if it was dry. I think sometimes as we have least rest of any one, but then wc take it in turns, and sleep in the wagon go ing irom town to town, and that s very refreshing when once you get used to it. At first, you know, it's decidedly rheumatic, and makes you very queer ; but you soon get used to it ; and I Cin stand anything now in the shape of wet ana coia. me women feel it worst poor things ; but they seldom grumble, anu puis up wun everything most pa tient no matter what it is ; and they have some hard times of it when the weather's bad. lhe people ccme to see and be amused, and we have got to amuse yon, Fancv, then, being the clown, and com ing on with a bad toothache, or a violent cold in the chest, or racked so with rheumatic pains at every moment's agony. Just fancy all that, in a cold Bpring time, which is the time when yon feel the cold most, lint there, you can't fancy it, yon people who always have comfortable homes and fire in 'em. I can, though, ah ! and realize it, too, for I've been through it all. I begun life with my father in a circus. Little lip of a chap I was then, in tights, and a bit of paint on each chalk ed cheek, to make me look like a clown; and then I never knew what it was to be afraid, while he took me up on one of the old piebald horses, and held me on his shoulder, or under his arm, or stood me on his head, or out at full length upon his hand, and me all the time with nay little arms folded, and standing as still as a rod. lo anything ho would with me, I never flinched. Used to like it, and think it tine fun, feeling all the while an old and deep as could be, while I quite looked down on boys double my age. Then I was regularly drilled into life, j on know, worki?p hard evcrv day at the rehearsalf and very hard 'work it is. I've done almost everything from the house work to the trapeze, I've turned surnruertets over five harecs and gone through the air like a ball al most. I got well on with the tight rope, and have walked right up a rope to a place a lincdml feet high, while the tire works have been fizzing and splut tering round me, for I always had good nerve, and never felt afraid of any thing ; while, though I never got to be a regular crack at any one thing, I was a sure cnrd, and a useful man to a man ager, for, if I waru't a star, I never missed my tip. I could always be sure of an engagement, and a pretty good salary ; and what followed ? Why, what always follows why, I must take a fancy to one of our lady riders at l'an gauais' Classical Cirque National, and get married. Now, you know most people, when they fall in love, do it by taking a fancy to a face. Well, that's natural p'r'aps, but I didn't, for I took a fancy to my wife's way of doing the scarf trick on horseback. I dare say yon know what I mean when they make a bit of mus lin lloat over them, and all that sort of thing. Well, it etrrtok me one day as the girl, who was so clever at that and was always quiet at rehearsing, and never stood any chaffinjr, conld be clever at other things ; and I said to mvself, " That's a settler : if she'll have nie I'll have she.'' And the very next night, when we were goin through the Flying Indians a piece on two horses, you know, that we'd done dozens of times before in a quiet business way I'd got to gallop af?r her horse, while she was pretending to flee from me, aDd me, of course, done np in ttyle with feathers and so on. Then w lien her horse was t?o swift I conld not ketch htr, I makes a lot of dumb motions, and shit s my tomahawk at her horse, which begits to halt and then limp, when I close npard pass my arm around her and bring her onto my horse, she pretending to resist, and as she stnnds going around back wards, she bangs away as I hold her. Well, being a very pretty thing, if it is well done, people was all very atten tive that night tbe one that came after I'd made up rry mind and we'd got to the part where I'd killed her horee, and it was lying in the middle of the ring, when, the music playing so that no one could hear what I eai J, I says : "Mary dear" her name on the bill was Mademoiselle Marioni "Mary, dear, I says, "make it real." " What?" say she. "Lst's make it real," I says; and then, out loud, " Od, horse !" " Don't talk nonsense," she says. " Put your arm a little more round my waist ; I'm slipping 1" " I was just going to, durling," I says. " You shan't slip, I'll support you." All this time of course she was hang ing away frm me, as if in a rage of fear; but when I slid, "I'll support yon," she laughed, and said : " You wouldn't like to ; I eat so much." " Try me," I said ; " I'm in earnest, and I mean it. Mind your balance." " Don't, pleate," she says, then, and I quite started to hear how pitifully she spoke. " Well, I won't, dear," I says, " only let's make it real." "Well," she says saucily, "I will make it real." And she hung away from me fiercer than ever, jnst like a wild Indian maid, while the people clapped again. And she did make it real, for I found the tongue to say so much that the piece was acted real right through, and when, at last, it came to her coming round and resting her arms on my shoulder, and me with my arm iound her waist. holding her right up, and all the time nourishing my bow in the other, while the horse went as hard as he could, 1 felt so happy and so satisfied with one word that tad never been said to me before, that I finished the piece off with what l mean to say was a real touch of nature. I drew her a little closer to me and kissed her, regularly bringing down the house. As we wfnt off there was Mary's father, who did the sword-lrick and the rings ; Fo-to-Li-no was his name in the bill, because he was a Chinese in the profession, though we always called him by his proper name, Bodger Dodd Well there was Mary's father waiting with a shawl and her galoshes, and he says to me very fierce : " lour e nation fast, Tom French. never see that last hit in the lying Indians aiore. " No more didn't I, old man," I sayn, slapping him on the shoulder ; " but we re going to make it real." I he old man and I had it over that night over some oysters and Mary was there, looking as blushing and as sweet as a girl could look ; and a month after, sir, we made it real, very much to our manager's disgust, for I wouldn't let Mary into the ring any more alter put ting her fluger into the little one I bought her. We were very happy for six years, all the time that I could be at home ; and then, arter a month's trip. I got back one day to find her father thtre, for she'd joined another troupe, and the old chap had got the news be fore I did, and he shook hands with n.e, and then broke down crying like a child. But I couldn't cry ; I couldn't balieve it ; I couldn't think that it was real as all this that sue was gone gone for ever. It seemed something I couldn't understand though they told me again and again that she was dead, and had been put in the col 1 ground two days before. At last, though, it seemed to come home to me, and I sat there, I think, for three days, doing nothing hardly but look at the three little onen that were left me. But at the end of those three days ray manager came to hunt me up, and took me back with him and he alwaya was a trump to me, though I was never the same man again; while p'r'aps it was all for the best that poor Mary went, for it saved her many a heartache and no end of poverty. It was about a year after she died tha. I was doing clown for the trip; making faces and saying the same funny things over and over again, night after night. While I was doing half a dozen summersets running, I put one foot on a piece of orange peel. I can't tell yon any more about it, sir, only I left that town a cripple. I get soft if I think at out it, for I am afraid I was very proud of what I was t s a man. Arab Horse Maxims. Whoso raiseth and traineth for the Lord is counted in the a hore number of those who give alms day and night, in private as well as public. He will find his reward. All his sins will be forgiven him, and never will any fear come over him and dishonor his heart. Let your c:lt be domesticated and live with you from his tenderest age, and when a horse he will be simpler docile, faithful and inured to hardship and fatigue. If you have your horse to serve you on the day of trial, if you desire him then to be a horse of truth, maka him sober, accustomed to hard work and inaccessible to fear. Do not beat your horses, nor speak to them in a loud tine of voice ; do not be angry with them, but kindly reprove their faults ; they wll do better there after, for they understand the language oi man and its meaning. If you have, a long day's journey be- fore you, t-pare your horse at the statt ; let him frequently walk to recover his wind. Continue this until he has sweated and dried three times, and yon may ask him whatever you please, he will not leave yon in difficulty, Use your horse as you do your leath ern bottld; if you open it geitly and gradually you can easily control the water within, but if you open it sud denly the water escapes at once, and nothing remains to quench your thirst. Never let your horse run up or down nui, it you can avoid it. tm tne con trary, slacken your pace. "Which do you prefer," was asked of a horse, " as- cent or decent ? " "A enrse be on their point of meeting ! " was the answer. Make yonr horse work ar.d work again. I u action and fat are the great perils ol a horse, and tno mam cause of all bis vices and disease. Observe your horse when he is drink ing at a brook. If in bringing down his head he remain square, without bending his limbs, he possesses sterling qualities and all parts of his body are built symmetricilly. Four things he must have broad frout chest, loios and limbs; four things long neck, breast, fore-arm and croup ; and four things short pas terns, back, ears and tail. A Chinese Comedy. me rtan i-ranc.sco uau speaKs ot a Performance by a newly imported troupe of Chinese actors and gymnasts as fol lows : "Tne piece presented was evi dently in the low coniedy line, jndgiug from the great merriment of the audi ence, excited by the dialcgae ; bus lhe leading features were the grand military spectacles, jugglery, and acrobatic per formances. At different times Chinese soldiery, of the old style, appeared upon the stage to the number of forty or fifty, and exhibited the mode of war fare with speurs and other ancient weap ons. The foDcicg exercises and com bats with the doubla swords display marvelous dexterity and agility, and demonstrate that the Chinaman on his native heath, and with his own style of weapon, is a dangerous antagonist. The mode of combat with hatchets and meat-choppers and the utility of the cumberacme bamboo shield are aUo displayed. The jugglery, which con sists in running each other throjgh with swords and sptars, braining one another with meat-axes, etc., is ttrill ing, but rather ghastly in its eff set, and most wondcrfiill deceptive. The blcod is seen streaming down the naked bodit a of the apparent victims in appearance that is wonderfully real, and. af ier bs ing decently slain in one of the terrific combats, it is quite surprising to ob serve the deceased arise again, ard go prancing eff the singe with a meat cleaver stuck in his ekull." According to'Kepesy, the surgeon to the Austrian Polar expedition, choca late, as a beverage, proved most vain able of all : the preserved meat and vegetables in tins being also of greatest service it sustaining strength and spirits. the the HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To remove paint splashed upon win dow-panes, use a hot solution of soda and soft flannel. After taking hp a carpet, sprinkle the floor with very dilute carbolic acid before sweeping. If tou have been picking or handling acid fruits, and have stained your hands, wash them in clear water ; wipe them lightly, and, while they are yet moist, strike a match and shut your hands around it so as to catch the smoke, and the stain will disappear. To Stop Bleeding. It is said that bleeding from a wound on manor beast may be stopped by a mixture of wheat flour and common salt, in equal parts, bound on with a cloth. If the bleeding be profuse, use a large quantity, say from one to three pints. It may be left on for hours, or even days, if necessary. Apple Snow. Roast eight tart ap ples and pulp them through a aeive; take one half pound of the pulp, and, when cold, mix with it one-half pound of finely-sifted loaf sugar, and the thin rind of a small lemon ; beat the whiteB of three eggs, whisk all the ingredients together to a fine froth, and pile on a ela?s difch. A little soonsre cake soaked in fruit syrup and laid on the bottom of the disn is an improvement. Chablotte Russe. Line a plain mold with sponge cake cut to fit exactly, brush over the inside, very lightly, with the white of an egg. and put it upon ice, Beat up one pint of rich cream with one ounce of isinglass (previously dissolved in sufficient waer to cover it). Sweeten and flavor to suit the taste. Pour this into the mold, cover it with a peice of snonce cake cut exactly the size. Ice it, and turn it out very carefully. Iced Cake. Mix thoroughly one-half pound of flour, one-half pound ground rice, currants, one-quarter pound sugar, one ouirter ounce mace and cloves, some mixed peel, a few bitter almonds pounded, some sweet aimonas spur, one teaspoonful of cwbonate of soda, melt one-half pound fresh butter in pint of warm milk, and the yelks and whites of four eggs beaten separately ; put this bv decrees on the dry ingredients, beat well ; put into a buttered mold, and bake. Chocolate Cream. Scrape two squares of chocolate and put them into a stewpan with two ounces oi sugary a pint of milk, and half a pint of cream ; let it boil until a third of it is con sumed, and when half cold beat up the yelks of six eggs with it ; strain the whole thiougn a seive, and men put the small cups or dishes in which the cream is ta be served into a pan con taining enough boiling water to reach above half way up the cream, oover the pan, and lay fire on the lid ; boil it till done, and serve cold. Osions (to Pickle). Choose small button onions ; as they are peeled throw them into milk and water, drain them from this when they are all done, put them into a jar and pour a strong brine of salt and water and a small piece of alum (boiling hot) over them, cover close, and set them asido till the next day ; drain and dry on a cloth, put them into cold distilled vinegar with a few blades of braised ginger, some whole pepper and a little mace, Keep always covered with vinegar, cork the jar close, and put m a dry, cold place. Remedy for Citour. Spirits of tur pentine is a sovereign remedy for croup. Saturate a piece of flannel with it, and place it, on the throat and chest, and send for your family physician. If the case be very urgent, and the child in great distress, and the distance to the doctor's residence very great, drop three drops of the turpentine on a lump of sugar and give it internally. Or a good emetic of blood-root, or lobelia, or both combined, should be fiven. Every family should keep a bottle of spirits of turpentine in the house. The bloom, or glaze, or facing of green and black tea is generally arti ficial. In the case of green tea it is or dinarily a mixture of Prussian blue, tumeric, and sulphate of mime, or China clay ; and in that of black tea it ia not unfreqnently a coating of blnck lead. The tea prepared for the English mar ket is notoriously subject to these adul terations ; and it seems that this arises entirely from our own fancy, and not from any desire on the part of the Chinese to pursue such a practice. The adulteration is easily discovered by treating the tea vith cold water, and then straining through muslin, and al lowing the fine powder to subside. To Preserve Milk. Provide bottles, which must be perfectly clean, sweet and dry. Put the milk warm from the cow into these bottles, and, as they are rilled, immediately cork them up and fasten the ork with wire. Then spread a little straw on the bottom of a boiler, on which place the bottles, with straw between them. Fill it up with cold water. Heat the water, and as soon as it begins to boil draw the fire and let the whole gradually cool. When quite cool take out the bottles, pack them away ia sawdust and put them in a cool place, but where the milk will not freeze. Milk preserved in this way will keep perfectly sweet for years. To Crystallize Flowers. Construct some baskets oi fancy form with plia ble copper wire, and wrap them with gauze ; into these tie to the bottom violets, ferns, geranium leaves in fact, any flowers but full-blown roses and sink them in a solution of alnm one pound to a gallon of water after the solution has cooled. The colors will be preserved in their original beauty faster than from a hot solution. When you have a light covering of crystals that completely! cover the articles remove the basket carefully and allow it to drip for twelve hours. These baskets make a beautiful parlor ornament, and for a long time preserve the freshness of the flowers. nANGixc-BASKET.s. A charming and inexpensive home adornment may be made by using a basket constructed in the manner given above or by procuring a small wire basket and Jinmg it with colored tissue-paper, of various colors. nicely fringed ; take a twe-pound oyster-can, pnt a sweet potato in it, and till it with water ; place the can in the center of the basket, and procure from any florist some gay southern moss and place in t he edge of the basket. In a short time the sweet-potato will send out a number of vines, which may be guided by strings around picture frames, twining through mantel orna ments over the cloak, adding beauty and cheerfulness to the room. It can be placed iu any part of the room, as it is not necessary that the sun should shine on it, and the vine will growall winte r in watt r. Ci re for Drunkexkess. There is a curious prescription in England for the cure of drnnkennfBS, by which thou sands arc said to have been assisted in recovering themselves. The recipe cama into notoriety through lhe efforts of John Viue Hall, father of Rev. New man Hall and Captain Vine Hall, com mander of the Great Eastern steamship. Ue had fallen into puch habitual drunk enness that his utmost efforts to regain himstlf proved unavailing. At length lie sought the advice of an eminent physician, who gave him a prescription which he followed faithfully for several months, and at the end of that time he lost all desire for liquors, although he had for many years been led captive by a most debasing habit. The recipe, which he afterward published, and by which so many have been assisted .o reform, is as follows : " Sulphate of iron, 5 grains ; magnesia, 10 grains ; peppermint water, 11 grains; tpfrit of nutmeg, one drachm to be taken twice a day." This preparation acts as a tonic and stimulant, and so partly sup plies the place of tue accustomed liquor, and prevents that abtolute physical and moral prostration that follows a sudden breaking off from the use of stimulating drinks. The new Encyclopedia Britanica has these appalling assertions : "If the natural resources of America were fully developed it would afford suste nance to 3,500,000,0(K) inhabitants a number nearly five times as great as the entire mass of human beings now existing on the globe ! And what is even more surprising, it is not improb able thai the prodigious population will be in existence within three or at most four centuries." The Suez CanaL A letter from Cairo to the Eastern Budget, dated the 31st December, says: " The present state of the nez canal is far from satisfactory. Tha canal is neither completed nor in good repair, and if matters are left as tney are at present it will beome useless in a few years. It is broad enough to accommo date three steamers abreast, but its depth is fo variable that one Bhip only cin pass through it at a time. When a vetsel comes from Saez the ships crat ing from Europe must wait at Port Said, and if the ship gets aeronni on the sand the whole communication is stopped until it is eet afloat again. This, of course, causes great injury to trade, and complaints are frequent. The chief cause of the evil is the want of money. The Eopiltsh, who use the canal more than any other nation, have long been thinking of getting the cmal into their own hands, but a majority of two-thirds of the shareholders is necassary in order to change the management, and as the viceroy is the possessor cf one-fhird of the shares, he has practically the cast ing vote. It is true that one-third of the shares are also in the possession of Englishmen, but the attempts which have been made to in-luca the viceroy to dispose of his shares have hitherto bf en fruitless. The khedive evidently feared that Eoclind will become too powerful on the canal, and therefore prefers the status quo. As for M. De L9seps, he continues to send protests to Constantinople about tbe canal dues, and his finances are becoming worse every day. The cost of the maintenance of the canal and drelgine-works is from 15,000,000 to 20,000,000 francs a year, while his total receipts this year have only amounted to 30.000.000 francs, and it is very uncertain whether tney will be maintained at that figare. Mer chants here are unanimously of opinion that something must be done to pre vent thii useful work from being ruined, and that M. De Lessens should either be allowed greater freedom of action, or be given an opportunity of selling the shares to a new company." Some Pretty Experiments for the Children; Place a tobacco-pipe in such a posi tion, on the edge of the table, that if it were left unsupported it would fall to the floor. A poker may now be sus pended from the pipe in such a manner that the weight of the poker will be sustained by the pipe. The looped string on which the poker hangs should be as close as possible to the bowl of the pipe, and the end of the poker must fall under the edge of the table. The center of gravity in this case is below th center of suspension, and the pipe consequently supports the poker. 2. If a little thread be well soaked in a solution of salt and water, and then dried and tied to a ring, not much larger than a wedding ring, yon may apply the flame of a candle to the thread, which will burn it to ashes, and yet it will sustain the ring. The cohe sion of the fibrous particles of the thread having been -destroyed by the action of the flame, the ring is now supported by the cohesion of the par ticles of salt. 3. Wrap a piece of e'em wrlticg paper tightly around the cylindrical handle of the poker, and the paper may be held over the flame of a lamp or can dle for some time without being in the least injured or burnt ; now wrap a similar piece of paper around a cylin der of wood and hold it over the flame, which will burn it almost immediately. The experiment shows the difference between the conducting powers of metal and wood, the heat being conducted away from the paper by the iron almost a3 rapidly as communicated, whilst wood, being a bad conductor of heat takes fire almost immediately. 4. Place in a small glass bottle hot water near boiling point, colored a deep carmine with cochineal ; place the 6ame at the bottom of a glass jar or cold water. Immediately the light, hot, col ored water in the phial will be dis placed by the heavier cold water in the jar, and will ascend in beautiful crim son clouds to the jar. The Polar Wave. The cold weather we have been having cf late in these latitules is as the balmy breath of the May-time in comparison with what they have been having in Montana, according to a correspondent. "Writing from Silver Bow, in that ter ritory, he says that the previous mid night the thermometer marked fifty-six degreas below zero. That was tbe night when Chinamen and whisky froze, as reported by telegraph. Daring a severe cold snap in Iowa some years ago, when the mercury ranged for many days between fourteen and thirty-six degrees below zero, the teamsters used, so it was currently reported, before starting on their long trips to buy a gallon of whh-ky, bore a hole through it and sling it by a string to the coupling pole of the wagon ; then they could knock off a piece with a hatched when they wanted a drink. The Montana correspondent tells of his success in freezing mercury. A tumbler full of the ordinary fluid metal was exposed to the air on a cold night. At forty degrees by tbe ther mometer it was still fluid ; at forty-one degrees it had regua to harden on the outside ; at forty-two degrees it was solid. Of course spirit thermometers are employed there by weather observ ers. One of them, a very careful man, wishing to be accurate, ordered a spirit thermometer from New lork, to be made with special attention to correct ness in the scale. It c me in due time, aud was a very fine instrument, but was only graduated to thirty degrees below zro. The disgusted meteorologist pro nounced it a good enough summer ther mometer, but not calculated for north ern Montana. The Effect of Exercise. It is found by observation that the effect of ' training," or the persistent use of gymnastic exercises, is to enlarge the heart and lungs both in size and capacity. Archibald McClaren, suptr intendent of the Oxford cymnasium, and author of "Physical Education," says ; " One of the army otScsers sent to me to be instructed in gymnastics gained five inches in girth around the chest in less than three months." That this growth is not explained by the mere enlargement of the peatioral muscles is proved by the increased volume of air which the lungs are en abled to expire, as i3 demonstrated by the spirometer, and post mortem s abundantly show an increased capacity as well as size in tbe heart and large blocd vessels. The lungs increase in length and breacth, forcing the libs outward and the diaphragm downwards. It is for this reason that athletes and gjmnasts are enable to make prolonged and violent exertions without getting out of wind. The capacity of the heart and central arteries being enlarged, they can accommodate more blood. Their contractile power being inoreased by this new demand upon them, they are enabled to send on the current through the lungs with increased ve locity, and thus by their greater capac ity are able to oxygenize the blood as fast as it is supplied to them, and so no congestion takes place, aud no incon venience is felt. The normal capacity of the lungs of an adult male is about 200 cubic inches. It is computed that an enlargement of three inches around the chest gives an increase of fifty inches of lung capacity. Decay of the teeth is really caused by their being dissolved by acids gen erated in the mouth by the decomposi tion of small particles of food. It is clear, therefore, that the only method of preventing this is to apply the brush immediately after every meal. Soap is the best snbstance to use on the brush, though it is advisable occafionally to use a rather rough powder of tome kind to ktep the teeth in brilliant polish. According to an Eureka, Nevada, journal there are over a thousand tons of bullion in bars at the Richmond emelting works awaiting shipment. Bonanza Aristocracy. Many of the eastern journals ar6 ex ceedingly anxious to know what influ ence the bonanza will have upon social life in San Francisc Some are of the opinion that we shall experience here a condition or tnings liae to tne eastern and northern etates during and after the war, when great fortunes fell to the army contractors and the lucky speculators in petroleum ; that, ss in the old commu nities in the Atlantic states an aristoc racy of shoddy and oil was built up, so now in California there will be a bonan za aristocracy ; that tbe great fortunes gathered from stock and mining ven tures will bring to the social surface the illiterate and vulgar, and that our well born and blue blood people will be compelled to endure the sharie and mortification of being out-dressed and out-jeweled by the valgar rich. This danger is not imminent, and the shock of sudden wealth is less marked in ef fect in San Francisco than perhaps in any other city of the world. In the first place, we are nearly all of us but adventurers ourselves ; so few cf us ever had grandfathers, that we some how do not feel the loss. We have some people among us who were most excellently born, descended from the creme de la creme of the azure blue of Beacon Hill, Boston, whose remote an cestors were pirates, their later de scendants slave-dealers, and numbers of their relatives of the prfsent genera tion are engaged in the bold pursuit of codfish off lhe banks of Newfound land and the spouting sperm whale of tha Arctic seas. We have some emi nent citizens descended from those early Patroons who cultivated vegetable gar dens in the vicinity of the city of New York ; early planters of early cabbages upon the island cf Manhattan, whose ancestors tilled their own acres till val gar enterprise pushed them from their dunghills and converted their farms into town lots. We have a number of mem bers of the first families of the Old Do minion, descendants from Pocahontas and John Smith, or in direct lin9 from Washington; fome whose anceitry may be traced to the auction-block, where maidens were swapped for tobacc; others of Higuenot descent, though originally tailors, shoemakers and vul gar artisans, their base mechanic's blood having been purified by persecu tion and kept undefiled by freedom from labor ever since. We have, of course, some most excellent people whose patents of nobility only run back to the ownership of negroes at the south. These more select classes are, however, in the minority; the great mass cf us are baseborn descendents of farmers, mechanics, traders and labor ersborn without spoon of any kind in oar mouths brought np with the as sistance of two tined forks. Some of us are immigrants who came around the Horn, or via the Isthmus, in the steer age. We are adventurers, brought to gether from all parts of the United States and the world. We all came poor, and in the earlier history of California we engaged in all Eorts of pursuits, all kinds of labor. Our object was to get rich, and as there was no "society," withitsimperiou3 laws, makinglabor dis honorable, we worked, we mined, toiled on farms, kept peanut stands, sold vegef a bles, manufacturedand soldbad whisky, kept livery stables, kept school, ran omnibus lines and corner groceries, were blacksmiths and fonndrymen, sold drugs at retail, and gambled a lil tie on the sly. We were steamboat clerks, ginger-pop manufacturers, ped dlers, superintendents of mines ; some of us worked by the month in saw-mills and cn abroad river craft, or earned an honest dollar as boatmen, stevedores and longshoremen ; some of us were common sailors, who, having come ashore from men-of-war, neglected to return, and for a subsistence washed dishes in restaurants or waited in hotels. Our wives kept millicery stores and we carried home the band-boxes; our motbers-in law kept boarding-houses or famished rooms, and we staid with the old lady till we got rich and ashamed, and then pensioned her off to retire from the business. Some of us prac ticed law, or swapped things, or prac ticed medicine, or preached, or turned stock-brokers. We all invested our earnings in mines, real estate, mercan tile ventures, gas, water and railroad franchises. We have obtained monop olies in gold, land, mines, mills, gas, water, ice, milk, chemicals, grain lum her, steamboats and express companies. We hava cornered mines and merchan dise ; we have pooled stocki ; we have gambled in every ventnre that offered a chance of gain. We have loaned our money at usurious rates of interest. Those who ran the gauntlet success fully and got rich have organized them selves into a " good society," and, while they have not drivtn the well-born and highly-cultivated from their association, have put them upon tneir good; be havior, have said to them that they are only allowed upon sufference, and will only be tolerated so long as they comply that govern the wiiu me ruies new organization. The first and leading article of the con stitution of our society is : "No reflec tions upon the past ;" " no askinar ones tions ;" "no raking up of ancestors, and all that antiquated nonsense;" "no hints at former employments." L;ke the clown in the circus, with all our spots and spangles, " Here we are, Mr. Merryman ; how do yon like us?" When new candidates conie forward for ad mission, all we demand is that they must be well-to do, of good character, war good clothes, ond be fully up to the proper standard of deporlment. If they do not wear the regalia and pay their dues, they are dropped on. The real truth is, our people are all standing upon so nearly lhe same plane in point oi birth, education, employment and general respectability we are all so nearly adventurers, so ne w to each other and so really indifferent to the exactions and standards tbat older communities heve set up for themselves that when Eome good, honest gettlernan, or some good, worthy and modest gentlewoman, withsons and daughters properly reared, enriched by sudden foriune, comes knocking at the door and asking admis sion to our fociety, it gives them an im mediate welcome. Now and then some of our people, who had grandfathers, shrug their shoulders and seowl. Now and then some of the newlv-enriched put on airs with their diamonds; but, as a rule, we soon become reconciled to each other, and go ou harmoniously to gether. Good breeding and goed cul ture are highly respee'ei ; ood man ners are fully appreciated. A little 6hoddy and a little bad grammar ate overlooked among tbe older members, while from the younger gentlemen and ladies we expect a deporiment and a culture that are up to the highest stand ard of social excellence. So we prom i e that if our bonanza aristociacy of to-day is not quite the genuine thing, we will present one in the next genera tion fully up to the average of the de scendants of the pirates, slave-sellers, and codfish kind of Beacon Hill, or of the market-gardeners of Manhattan, or of the first families cf Virginia and North Carolina. For our society to be come first-class and our descendants as good as anybody is only a question of time. Jon Francisco Chronicle. Proclamation for an Extra Session of the Senate. The following proclamation wa3 is sued on the 18th inst : Whereas, Objects of interest to the United States require that tha senate should be convetied at 12 o'clock on the 5th day of Marc i next, to rtceive and act upon such communications as may be made to it on tho part of the execu tive Now, therefore, I, Ulysses S. Grant, president of the United States, having considered it my dr.tv to issue this, my proclamation, declaring that an extra ordinary occanion requires the senate of the United States to convene for the transaction of business at the capitol, in the city of Waehineton, on the 5th day of March next:, at 12 o'clock at noon on tha1; day of March, all who shall at that time be entitled fo set as members of that brdy sr hereby required to take notice. Given under my hand acd eeel of the United States, at' Washington, the 17th day of February, iu the year of our Lord one thousand eight hucdred end seventy-five, and of the independence of the United States of America the ninety-ninth.

It looks odd to see vast troops of buzzards blackening here and there the sea weed but they are the scavengers of the tropics ; their lives protected by law, and their swift scent for carrion is really the protection of the people from miasmas that else would eoon be pesti lence. Panama is a dense little place, huddled upon a rocky peninsula jutting into the sea from the base of the vol canic Anoon. Leaving tbe pier, one follows a rather straggling street, which winds among negro huts, grog-shops, and many curious varieties of real estate and live stock, until it delivers him within the walls no gates are visi ble, nor does any one exactly know when he gets inside, except by a vague feel ing that he is ia where semblances of paving and side-walks appear ; there is an occasional corner with its side street; tbe houses indulge in verandas, some times of three stories ; queer looking shops including some where beef is sold by tho yard get thicker ; mules, donkeys, dogs, poultry, pigs, pickannin nies, grinning girls and turkey buzzards abound, and here and there an old church is seen, until, of a sudden, you are in the piaza; the cathedral, with its two towers with their shell-ornamented, pyramidal termini, on whose lofty sum mits as well as in all inferior crevices, ledges, and all other possible places grass is growing, and plants are flour ishing and blooming with the meet as tonishing nonchalance, is on your left : the not very magnificent state house and palace of justice is on your right, and beyond it is what ia left of the old, and what is finished of the new "Grand" hotel of Panama. The average travel er finds little beauty in his surround ings; but there is a certain newness about the picture which pleaces him for the sense of novelty is a pleasnra in itself. Police Court Studies. a foreigner. " This feller seems to have strayed from home," said Bijah, as he brought out a tall, dark-complexioned man. " Can you speak English ?" inquired the court. " Es propio de porsonas mal criadas el ofenderse de cualquier cosa," an swered the prisoner. " That's Dutch," said Bijah. " French," said the clerk. "Go away that's Spanish," added his honer. " Now, then, hear me rattle off his own lingo to him. " Nowsir waso ycu drunko?" " Son todes bien armados y ban salldo conuna determinaeion," was the reply, accompanied by a bhake of the head. "Cantns you understandus me!" asked his honor. El diablo debe haber sido arquitecto feoundo y de talento," said the man. "Willo you ever geto drunko any more 1" shouted the court. The prisoner pnt on his hat, looked up at the clock and deliberately walked out of doors, while Bijah skulked into the corrider, sat diwn on the woodbox and laughed until the court ordered the sergeant to go in and see what prisoner that was choking to death. " THOU ART THE MAN." " Henry Brown, what brought you here?" asked his honor of a colored man. " I doesn't admit dat I is here," en- swered Henry. " Is your tame Henry Btown?" "I doesn't admit it," replied the pris oner. m " Well, were you drunk ?" " I pleads not guilty, and demands de proofs. " Come up here and testify," said bis honor to the officer, and the officer swore that he had picked Heary Brown out of a snow-drift. "Now, den," commencad the prison er, " am I de man ?" " Yon are," answered the officer. " Wasn't Sam Johnson de man ?" " No, sir." " Why why wasn't he !" exclaimed Henty, bending almost double. "Because he wasn't." " Dat isn't proofs, sir ! I want dis court to make yon tell why Sam John son wasn t de man. " I found you, brought you here, and here you are, replied the irritated officer. " And I am de man?" " You are." " And vou knows it ?" "I do." " Now, den," said the man, a bland smile covering his countenance, " how does yon know I am de man !" " Oh, that's all right," remarked the court. " The fact that von were drunk is plain, and I send jouup for thirty days." " For what ?" asked the prisoner. "For being drunk." " But I calls for de proofs !" exclaim ed Henry. Bijah gathered him in, and he being the last man, the court arose, tenderly caressed his frost-bitten ear, and the crowd vacated. Detroit Fress Press. A New Grass. The Savannah Advertiser sayB that after Sherman made his march to the pea, all in the wide track of waste and desolation that be made with the tramp of his footman and the iron feet of his cavalry there sprung up a new and un known grass from the soil, which the farmers called Sherman clover." It would grow up in the most unexpected places, and it is said would root out Bermuda grass ; and, as a strange simi larity, we now hear that after the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71,m many dis trict j of France a new vegetation sprang up, evidently the result of the invasion. It was believed that this vegetation would become acclimatized, but very few of the species introduced in this way appear likely to continue to flour ish. In the departments of Loir and Loiret-Chor, of one hundred end sixty three German species, at least one-half have already disappeared, and the sur viving species diminish in vigor each year. Scarcely five or six species ap pear to manifest any tendency to be come acilimatized. Can any of our naturalists account for it. Old man Wheeler of Minnesota wants a divorce from his wife. She pent him down the cellar one night last week after a bottle of yeast. He got it and was trudging along up stairs, think ing of nothing in particular, when the twttle exploded, scaring Wheeler so that he fell with one preat whoop down in a soap barrel under the stairs. When they pulled him out he pranced around yelling " Cuss a wife ; cuss yeast ; cuss "the whole of ye !" And the lawyers say he has got a good case. Vinegar Bitters. Dr. J. Walker.a regular practicing physician of Cali fornia, has conferred a priceless boon upon mankind by the introduction of a "Bitters" compounded from herbs exclusively, which may be truly said to be superseding all others, and is becoming a bitter dose indeed for the charlatans and quacks, on account of its immense sale and universal popu larity. Not only are these Vinegar Bitters, as lie calls them, an invalu able tonic and alterative, but they are acknowledged as a standard Medicine, and the astonishing rapidity with which they cure diseases hitherto de clared incurable, seems almost incred ible. After having been carefully tested, they are kf pt on hand in thou sands of households, and used for any and every form of disease, many re lying upon them in preference to the most celebrated physicians. They have become a recognized "family remedy." and rroperly so.

By neglecting lhe precaution which common eense dictates, many fall victims to their own imprudence. We have seen the young and beautiful girl, the hope and pride of her parents her cheek flushed with an ticipation, and her eyes beaming with the gay dreams of life we have seen all this changed for a shroud by neglecting a common cold which had settled upon her lungs. It might have easily been cured if it had been attended to in time.

Premature less of the hair, which is so common now-a-day. may be entirely pre vented by the use of Burnett's Coooaine. It has been used in thousands of oases where the hair was coming out in handfnls. and has nev er failed to arrest its decay, and to promote a healthy and vigorous growth. It is at the same time unrivalled as a dressing for the hair. There arj more than one thousand different kinds of pills in the United States. 8nme of them are worthless and injurious, othe are good and beneficial. Old Dr. Far sons invented the best anti-bilious pill we ever saw or heard of. Thev are now sold under the name of Parsons' Purgative Pills. We understand that the whooping cough is quite prevalent in the towns around us ; but that no cases have proved fatal. Some families use nothing but Johnson's Anodyne Liniment.
