WEDNESDAY. DEC. 16, 1874. Chinese Proverb. The excellence of aphorism has been said to consist chieflly in the comprehension of some obvious useful truth in a few words; and, if this be the case, the Chinese lan guage is peculiarly adapted for the production of proverbs, for it pos sesses, from its peculiar structure, a beauty and pointedness of expres sion which, however, no degree of oars or pains can adequataly con vey into a translation. Let us cite from various sources s few of the numerous aphorisms, maxims and proverbs current among the Chinese, many of which will suggest parallel sentiments in our own and other languages. By a loijg journey we know a horse's strength; so length of days shows a man's heart In the dajs of affluence always think of poverty; do not let want come upon you and make you re member with 'regret the time of plenty. In contradistinction to this sentiment is another: Let us get drunk to day, while we have wine; the sorrows of tomorrow may be borne to morrow. To correct an evil which always exists is not so well as to foresee and prevent it. Wine and good dinners make abundance of friends, but in time oi adversity not one is to be found. Cautious conduct under circum stances of suspicion is inculcated somewhat oddly by the following: In a field of melons do not pull off your shoes; under a plum tree do not adjust your cap. "Tempus fugit" becomes, in Chinese: "Time flies like an arrow; days and months like a weaver's shuttle." The Chinese evidently agree with Solomon's well known advice to a parent, for they say: "If you love your son, be liberal in punishment; if you bate him, accutsom him to dainties.". If you would understand the character of a prince, examine his ministers; if you would understand the disposition of any man, look at his companions; if you. would know that of a father, observe his son. - Man is born without knowledge, ahd when he has obtained it very soon becomes old ; when his expe rience is ripe death suddenly seizes him. The fame of men's good actioDS seldom goes beyond their own doors; but their evil deeds are carried to the distance of a thou sand miles. Tbouerh powerful medicines are nauseous to the taste, they are j good for the disease; though candid ! advice is unpleasant to the ear, it ' is profitable lor the conduct. From the following simile, look ing glasses are evidently appreci ated by Chinese ladies: Without a cleare mirror, a woman can not know the state of her own face; without a true friend, a man can not disern the errors of his own actions. The evidence of others is not comparable to personal experience, nor is "I heard'' as good as "I saw." The three "great misfortunes in life are: In youth to bury one's father, in middle age to lose one's wife, and being old to have no son. A virtuous woman is a source of honor to her husband; a vicious one causes disgrace. He who at once knows himself and knows others, will triumph as long as he contends. It is easy to convince a wise man, but to reason with a fool is a diffi cult undertaking. True gold fears not the fire. "A basket of grain producing only a pound of chicken meat," is symbolical of a loosing business. "Climbing a tree to hunt for fish,'' expresses looking for things where they can't possibly be found. A Musical ProdKldV. The Milwauke Advertiser of Sat urday has the following: Last evening a reporter for the Daily Advertiser had the pleasure of calling at the residence of Mr. Simpson, of the revenue service of this district, and observing the wonderful musical talents of the little five year old daughter" of Mr. and Mrs Edward Simpson. The child C urrie is a remarkably bright and vivacious little body who will be six years old next January. When she was two years old she began to evince the greatest desire for music, and to the aston ishment of her parents and all who saw he would play upon the piano . correctly any simple air that was first played for her. From that time, although she has had no in structions whatever upon the piano, Miss Carrie has continued to play and improve, until her per formances cow are absolutely as tonishing. Last evening the little Mias played without the least hesitation most dificult selections from ''Zampa" and other operas, and rendered the ' Carnival of Venice," in a style that was perfect. The child was so full of laughter and playfulness that she would not pay the least attention to her bands or the piano but was most intent upon having an evening frolic; yet the little fingers would not miss a note in the music, and they evidently were, doing their work without the least volition on the part of the child. A remark able feature of her playing is the fact that she is very apt to change from one key to another in per foi ming a piece, yet never making the least discord by so doing. Of course the child has not the physical force to bring out the full music of many selections specially from the operas that she plays; the notes, however, even in the most difficult passages, are all put in, and always without hesitancy or error. When Miss Kellogg was in the city, that lady witnessed this phenomenon, and declared that as a musical prodigy the little daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Simpson has no equal in the world. Miss Carrie is a beautiful and interesting child, of more than ordinary physical and mental de velopment; is a blonde, possesses regular features, and is more striking in appearance than most children of her age. Mrs. Simpson is a talented musician, but the parents have very wisely concluded not to force the 1 musical powers of their daughter by cultivation until she -is old enough to receive thorough in struction from the very best masters. The child is a wonder ful musical erenious, who would attract the attention of the whole world if brought before the public; and it is fortunate for her that lier parents have the uncommon good sense to keep the little prodigy away from the public as much as possible, instead of bringing her out as most parents, we fear would be tempted to do. Fletcher William' Gun. Recently it occurred to Mr. Fletcher Williams, of St Paul, that it would be a good thing to go out and see if he couldn't shoot a rab bit or two. He always kept his gun loaded and ready in the corner of the room, so he merely shoulder ed it and went out. After a while he saw a rabbit, and, taking aim, he pulled the trigger. The gun failed to go off. Then he pulled the other trigger, and the cap snapped again. Mr. Williams used some extreme language, and then taking a pin, he picked the nipples of the gun, primed them with a little powder, and started again. Presently he saw another rabbit, but both caps snapped again. The rabbit did not see Williams, so he put on more caps, and they snapped, too. Then Williams cleaned out the nipples again, primed them, and fired the gun off at the fence. Then the caps snap ped again. Then Fletcher became furious, and in his rage he expend ed forty seven caps in an effort to make that gun go off. When the forty-seventh cap missed, also, Fletcher thought that there might, perhaps, be something the matter with the inside of the run, so he tried the barrels with the ramrod To his bitter disgust, he discovered that both barrels were empty, Mrs. vv liliams, who is nervous about firearms, bad drawn the loads without telling Williams, for fear of making him angry. If there had been a welkin anywhere about, it would probably have been made to ring with Mr. wilhans ex cited denudations of his misfor tunes as a hunter. Finally, how ever, he became cooler, and, loading both barrels, he started again after rabbits. He saw one in a few moments, and was about to fire, when he noticed that there were no " caps on his gun. He felt for one", and to his dismay found that he had snapped the last one off. Then he ground his teeth and walked home. On his way there he saw at least six hundred rabbits. He has been out hunting every day since, however, with his gun in first rate order, and he has never laid eyes on a solitary rabbit Williams is beginning to think something is wrong in the govern ment of the universe. Sunday Herald. Brown, the "mind reader," who gave two exhibitions of his wonder ful power in this place, some two yeare ago, is creating a sensation in the Eastern States.

A Warning; to Eaters of Salt White Fish. We are informed upon reliable au thority that during the recent violent gale, which prevailed in this vicinity. all the shoal ponds on the Canada side of the Detroitriver became so depleted of water that the white nsh stored in them for future delivery died, and the owners of these dead hsh are now en gaged in salting them, with the inten tion of disposing of them in the market. Those fish that came to their death in the manner indicated, are diseased, and should not be used. We call the attention of the proper au thorities to this matter, that they may be on the lookout for the parties en gaged in this nefarious business. De troit Free Press.

A Representative and Champion of American Taste. Prospectus for 1875 : Eighth Year THE ALDINE, The Art Journal of America, ISSUED MONTHLY, "A ' Magnificent Conception, wonderfully carried out. The necessity of a popular medium for the representation of the produc tions oi our great artists, has always been recognized, and many attempts have been made to meet the want. 1 he successive failures which so invariably followed each attempt in this coun try to establish an art journal, did not prove the indifference of the people of America to the claims of high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an ability to meet it were shown, the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and the re sult was a great artistic and commer cial triumph THK ALD1JN.E.

True art is cosmopolitan. While THE ALDINE is a strictly American institution, it does not confine itself entirely to the reproduction of native art. Its mission is to cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, one that will discriminate only on grounds of intrinsic merit. Thus, while placing before the patrons of THE ALDINE, as a leading characteristic the produc tions of the most noted American ar tists, attention will always be given to specimens from foreign masters, giv ing subscribers all the pleasure and instruction obtainable from home or foreign sources. 1 he artistic illustration of Amen can scenery, original with THE AL DUS iu, is an important feature, and its magnificent plates are of a size more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment of details than can be af forded by any inferior page. The ju dicious interspersion of landscape, marine, figure, and animal subjects. sustain an unabated interest, impossi ble where the scope of the work con fines the artist too closely to a single stvle of subject.

Wishart's Pine Tree Tar Cordial for Throat and Lung Diseases, his gained an enviable reputation from the At lantic to the Pacific ocean, and from thence lu some of the first families o( Europe, not ' through the press alone, but by persons throughout the States actually benefitted and cured at his office. While he .publishes less, so say our reporters, he is unable to sap ply the demand. It gains and holds its rep utation: First. Not by stopping cough, bat by loosening and assisting nature to throw off lite unhealthy matter collected about the throat and bronchial tabes, which causes Irritation. Second. It removes the cause of irritation (which produces cough) of the mucous mem brane and bronchial tubes, assists the lungs to act and threw off the unhealthy secrej tions, and purifies the blood. Third. It is free from squills, lobelia, Ipe cac and opium, of which most throat and Inng remedies are composed, which allay cough only and disorganize the stomach. It has a soothing effect on the stomach, acts ou the liver and kidneys, and lymphatic and nervous regions, thus reaching to every part of the system, and in its invigorating and purifying effects, it has gained a repu tation which it must bold above all others in the market.
