We were five passengers in all; two ladies on the back seat," a middle aged gentleman and a Quaker on the middle, and myself on Sthe front. The two ladies might have been mother and daughter, aunt and niece, governess and charge, or might have sustained any other relationship, which made it proper for two a ladies to travel together unattended The middle aged gentleman was sprightly and talkative. He soon struck up an so quaintance with the ladies; towards whom, in his zeal to do, he rather overdone the agree able-bowing and smiling and chattering over his shoulder jp a way painfully sugges tive at this time of life, of a 'crack' in the trick. He was evidently a gray lothario. The Quaker wore the uaithis of his suet, and confinetd b3s~tcb , as many a parlir en. tarian would save his credit by doing, to simple 'yeas' and 'nays.' As for myself I make it an invariable rule of the road to be merely a looker-on and listener. Towards eveving I was aroused from one of those reveries intowrhich a young man fall, by an abrupt query from the talhtive gen tleman: 'Are you armed, sir?' :I am. not,' I answered, astonished, no doubt visibly, at the question. 'I am sorry to hear it.' he replied; for be fore reaching our next stopping place it will be several hors in the night, and we must pass over a portion of the rad on which mre than one robbe is reported to lbmae en committed. The ladies turned pale, but the stranger = did his best to reassure them. 'sot that . think there is the slightest danrer at present,' he remmne 'only sis t one mareepousible for the saf ety the lads, you know, each a thing as a pistol in romeh, would materially add to .ne'seooldeuee.' 'Your principles, my friend,' addrmin the Quaker, 'I presume, are as shope - to arrying as to using carnal weapons.' 'Yea,' was the responde 'Have the villians murdered any of hkir Siortims!' the elder lady aervemv lyiauisd. 'Or have they contented tbemseahiftb -with--plundering thmadde the you~ . er, in a timorous voice. *Decidedly the latter,' the aahblbgsate man hastened to give assurane6; 'end we me none of prepared to oedr rasi mee in ae of ,.tcka nothing w e o a rob. bery can pssibl befall a..'

Pereelvang , pocket a box of newly.nveted'eo. ea.dy and, after passing it firsat to the adie, he helped himself to the ballance and tossed the paper out of the window. He was in the midst of a high eaeomism on the new noatrum, more than halt the ef fleecy of which, he insisted, depended on its being taken by suction, when a shrill whistle was heard, and almost immediatel the coach stopped, while two faces, deouy blacked, preseated themselves, one at ek window. 'Sorry to trouble yeu,' said the man on the ribt, acknowledging with a bow, two lady-like screams from the back seat; but .basiness is business,' sad urs will soon be over if thing go smoothly.' ' 'Of course, gentlemen, yu will pmas far as may be consistent with your disaree able duty, the feelings of these ladies,' ap pealed the polite passenger, in his blanlsst manner. 'Oh! certainly; they shall be first attdeM to, and shall not be required to leave their i plaese, unless their endaet ed ims ase s ary.

Blanching of Human Hair. The question of human hair blanching in a sigle night from the effects of fear or great trouble, has., recently been investigated by Dr. Austin Flint, an experienced writer on physiology. This gentleman does not con Sider the case~of Henry IV of France, Marie Antoinette or Sir Thomas Moore sufficienty well defined by the historians to be entirely I depended upon, but scientific observations recently made by Doctors Landois and Loh Smer, two German physicians, show that a head of hair of jet or golden hue, may be silvered in a few hours by the action of fear upon the nerves and brain. The patient was a compositor, hair light, and blue eyes, who was brought to a hospital in Leipsic, suffering with delirium tremens. He was in great terror when approached by any person, imagining that he was of thin glass, liable to be smashed to amtos by the slightest touch. Lauedaum was amninistered, and after a sleep of twelve hours' duration, he was well enough to sit up. About thirty hours after this his hair ar.d beard turned gray so rapidly as to completely astonish physicians, patient and friends. lThe whiteness in this instance did not result from the absence of coloring matter, as is the case with old people, but from the presence of minute air bubbles in the hair; and it was only by reflecting light that the hair seemed gray; by transmitted light it seemed as dark as ever. ITnscien title eyes would not notice this, and the hair certainly seemed to be permanently white, for it remained so at the patient's discharge two mouths later. Another similar case, lately reported to the Royal Society by Mr. Eramus Wilson, showed. the same kind of change in a microscopical examination. In this connection, we find a report in the (Ar chives of Physiologic) for the present year, furnished by the celebrated French Surgeon, Dr. Brown Sequard, a curious observation on himseltf which may easily repeated by others. Fi:,ding four white hairs on one cheek and sesen on the other, in a dark beard, he carefully plucked them, and two days later he found two such hairs on one side and three on the other, all white from end to end. This was repeated several times, with the same result, and he concludes that there is no doubt of the possibility of "a very rapid transformation (probably in less than one night) of black hairs into white."

WbASHIGTON's DAPATH.-It is a fact not generally known. perhapq, that Washington drew his last breath in the last hoar of the last day of the last week in the last month of I year. and in the last year of the century. He died on Saturday night, twelve o'clock. December 31st. 1799. A .+...,w W .o.a .fRnlwar savw that ARTIFICIAL. WANTS.-Bulwert says that poverty is only an idea in nine cases out of I ten. Some men with ten thousand dollars a year suffer more for want of means than ,thers with three hundred. The reason is , the richer man has artificial wants. His in ome is tell thousand. and he suffers enough from being dunned for unpaid debts to kill a sensitive man. A man who earns a dollar a lay and does not run in debt, is the happier man of two. Very few people who have never been riobh will believe this; but is as true as God's word. There are thonsands and thousands with princely incomes who niver know a monent's peace, because they live above 'heir means. There is really more happiness in the world among working peo pie than among those who re called rich. ee-e nh SEl.r MA . )sRN.-We do sot wonder that ci great men have been born mechanics. For those who have been brought up exclusively ii in drawing rooms, intelligence is a game, a recreation; for those who have held the sword or the helm, who have driven the plwo or worked with the chisel, intelh genote becomes a passion. a force, a beauty. a worship. and a love divine. It is from the astll, the shop. the work room, that the most c powerful mind have issued. Moliere from the upholsterer's. Burns' from the farmer's. Shakespeare from the hbsier's shop, Rous seau from the wheelwright's-long engaged i ia, a struggle with physieial nature, they all took refuge in the fr.. dormai of thought. Even an inferior mind would soon become tempered to streagtb in these meohanihal spprenticeships; if ever the spirit of reform which has seised on the world should extend to the act creating citizens, we doubt not that go ad sense will gain a victory over cas tomr, and that one of the most important parts of every education will be henceforth the due admixure of the developement of the mind and its action on nature. --e --e. T_ `. .... - " R' Q r ][T THE NAVIGATION OF THU RED F.Ae.-L'o make a canal across the Isthmus of Sues. and connect the Mediterranean and the Red f Sea, is one thing; to render the Red Sea esiy gi of navagition is another. At present toe tt most careful seamaniship can not secure vessels against accidents. The Sea is full of ti coral reefs and shoals. Only the otbh r day lt we reported the loss of a steamer larger than w the Scotia in this perilous highway. When to the road becomes crowded we may look for 6 a much larger proportion of accidents. It sa is seven or eight days' steaming between it Suez and Adem. and during the whole of t that time the Captain of the -Peninsuolar and Oriental" steamer-the line which plies between England and India-is scarcely ever p off the deck, and never takes off his clothes. And yet with all this vigilance three of those steamers have been lost within a few years. y It is proposed. we believe, that the Red Sea should be beaconed and buoyed at the ezx I pease of England and France. It would be a a noble work, and it is impossible to doubt a [ that some hundreds of lives would be saved a Sby it. To the ordinary passenger the dia- I comforts of a Bed Sea passage-the fearful I I heat, the intolerable tension on the air, t t gloom and depression produced by all the I rsuronuding circumstance- are quite i Senough to ace without the prospect of ship. 1 wreck and death being added. WIT AND BUMQ The Washington correspondent of the Chicago Tribune, relates the following saco. dote of the late Amos Kendall: When he went to Dartmouth College, he was so poor that he was frequently on the brink of despair. One day a negro, a sort of amiable old pauper on the college, came to Kendall for alms. Kendall asked him bow poor he was, and the negro went over the points of his plea. "Now," said Kendall, .I'll tell you my circumstances," which he did so circumstantially and pitiably, and yet truthfully, that the negro cried, "Master Kendall. hold on. Hyeab, take all dat I have. You're do ioorest man in de United States." The mind of the young is easily trained; it iz bard work to get an old hop vine to clime a new pole. Just in prportion thb-it'Wai is? t.akfl to hiaven and his naber. jost in that proper *iot.4s he happy. Blessed is them who have no eye for knot , or key holes. A man should learn to be a good servant t to himself before be is fit to boss others. The more exalted our stashun, the more I conspicuous our virtews; jit as a rich satin q adds to the brilliancy of a juel. Blessed are the single, for they can double o at their leisure. If you want tow learn a child to stal oa ts in the bundle, make him beg out ofyosavery. thing that you give him. There is nothing so difficult for the best of us as to git the approval of our own con. science. t Blessed iz he who can pocket abuse and reel that it ia no disgrace to be bitten by a log. Punishment tow hit the spot should hae few but red hot. S iHapyness concists in bein perfecktly sat isfied with what we have got and wat we aiat w Here is a good old story, which. after go ing the rounds of the American press, has been t-ansferred to Paris. where the papers a 'ave fixed it up as an Italian incident. We ranslate it from a Paris paper. A man lately committed suicide at Na. at ales. in whose boot was found the following ei statement: "I married a widow who had by a former hi narriage a grown up daught.er. My father, I >ften coming to see me, fell in love with my step-daughter and married her. Thus my ether became my son-in-law, and mly tep laughter my mother, as she was my father's o wife. Some time afterwards my wife had a I 'on; who was my father's brother-in-law, nd also my uncle. as he was my step-amoth r's brother. My father's wife, my step-ie er. also became the mother of a boy who ecanme my brother and my grandson. as he was my daughter's son. My wife was my * rsandmother. I was both her husband d is er grandson, and as the husband of a man's Ia ,rand mother is his grand father, I became ny own grand father." After all these particulars, the snioide of he poor man needs no comment. he Byron question to the newspapers, and n hey are citizens of Cape Cod, who went off oaokeral fishing ten weeks ago, and have not t eturned. Rev. Dr. Osgood once had a young candi late to preach in his pulpit, who, he thboght, fr !eeded taking down. He did it in this way: -I observe," he said, "that you commit your om liseourase to memory. I sometimes do that syself-but never unless I think the sermon a worth committing."
